Thanksgiving Week

It is Thanksgiving Week so folks will kind of start getting ready for Thursday. Have at it.

Mike Bloomberg is running for president. Commentary hasn’t decided who to support at this point. I probably won’t until just before Super Tuesday. Do they still call it Super Tuesday?

Newly elected HISD Trustees Judith Cruz and Dani Hernandez both think they ought to be selected to the HISD Board of Managers. They said so in an Op-Ed in yesterday’s Chron here: https://www.houstonchronicle.com/opinion/outlook/article/Texas-Education-Agency-should-choose-winning-HISD-14855254.php.

Why not?

Early Voting in Person for the City of H-Town runoff elections start in a couple of days with Election Day in less than three weeks. If the H-Town Mayor wins reelection, I guess folks will start talking about who will be running for mayor in 2023. I would have to say it is a wide-open affair.

City Controller Chris Brown is a nice fella, but he should have performed better than 53% against Orlando Sanchez. He doesn’t get a leg up on anyone if he decides he wants to run for mayor.

The Chron E-Board endorsed the H-Town Mayor yesterday here: https://www.houstonchronicle.com/opinion/editorials/article/We-recommend-Mayor-Sylvester-Turner-for-second-14855742.php.

Christmas Day is one month from today. Christmas Day this year falls on a Wednesday, so Christmas Eve is on a Tuesday, and the day after Christmas is a Thursday so that pretty much takes up the entire Christmas week.

I spent the day in Baytown yesterday with my Dad. We went to the grocery store and on the drive, my Dad was all into the Christmas tunes as he sang along and even made up some lyrics to Rudolph and other favorites.

You may have noticed that ever since our World Series loss and the announcement of the MLB cheating investigation, I have kind of skipped the MLB question. I will probably rev back up at the beginning of the year.

I do have a couple of political campaigns that I am handling that are keeping me busy.

This being the Christmas Season, I will do a take on something Christmas from now until the end of the year.

Best Christmas Movie? Some folks like “It’s a Wonderful Life”, “A Christmas Story”, “Miracle on 34th Street” and even “Die Hard.” I will go with “Home Alone.”  It received two Oscar nominations.  “Somewhere in My Memory” for Best Song and Best Original Score.  Thank you and that’s all.
