We are 13-9. What was our record last season after 22 games?

MJ Hegar is running for the U.S. Senate and she announced it this morning with a cool video. Whoever gets in next better have a cool video.

Here is what Dems need to do.  It is obvious.  Let’s let the House Judiciary Committee take the lead, bring in the witnesses, hold hearings and go from there.

I wonder what the over/under is on the mediation over the mess at H-Town City Hall?

The Chron E-Board has a take today on the proposed advertising on Houston Metro buses and trains. Here is how they end their take today:

Let the public be heard. No public hearings are required, other than the always-available public comment sessions at regular Metro board meetings. But the board should hold them anyway, choosing two or more times when riders and non-riders alike can show up to speak for or against the proposal. It’s that important.

Quantify the upside with as much precision as possible. So far, putting a finger on how much revenue can be expected has been difficult, but without a reliable figure any decision made will be made blind.

If the ads are allowed, dedicate the revenue to specific improvements that everyday riders can feel. For example, ads on the buses could be linked to specific increases to frequency or ads on shelters could be linked to building new ones. Dropping the new funds into general revenue to be spent willy-nilly shouldn’t be an option.

Metro should take its time to get this right on the first try. It’s a decision whose consequences will be felt across the region. Full public hearings, precise forecasts and a fully transparent handling of any revenues is the least the agency should commit to.

Here is the entire take: https://www.houstonchronicle.com/opinion/editorials/article/Metro-should-go-slow-in-considering-13786621.php.

Last season, after 22 games, we were 15-7 of course.

Marwin got a video tribute last night. Thanks, but no thanks, said the team.
