Still A Mess

What is our record in extra inning games this season?

Sigh. The mess and madness at H-Town City Hall continues. Here is from the Chron:

Councilwoman Brenda Stardig also asked (Mayor Sylvester) Turner if the city plans to recoup back pay granted to firefighters before Prop B was ruled unconstitutional. Some department employees received raises the week before the judge’s ruling.

Turner said his administration is “addressing how to deal with that issue,” but in the meantime he sees the raises as a “credit on future negotiations.” The mayor said last month that he did not intend to “claw back” funds from any firefighter.

Here is the entire read: : https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/City-council-officially-rescinds-firefighter-Prop-13971219.php?utm_campaign=CMS%20Sharing%20Tools%20(Premium)&utm_source=t.co&utm_medium=referral.

I don’t know what to say. Credit? Commentary doesn’t know how much each firefighter received, but it is silly to think they just parked the dough somewhere. Come on!

Sigh, again. This Chron online headline says enough:

Before $9M verdict, HISD could have settled copyright case for $250K

I guess Dem members of the Texas House aren’t supposed to say much about trying to win a majority in the Texas House. Here is from today’s Trib: https://www.texastribune.org/2019/06/13/texas-house-majority-2020-democrats-only-need-nine-seats/.

Maybe it is out of respect for House Speaker Dennis Bonnen.

We are 4-1 in extra inning games this season of course.

I sure am looking forward to getting Jose Altuve, #SpringerDinger and Carlos Correa back in the line-up.
