Metrics Matter

Stubborn. Stupid. Clueless. Insecure.

I don’t know what else you can say about Gov. Greg Abbott.  Nine Texas Mayors, including, Sylvester Turner, have asked for the authority to impose face masks.  Texas is blowing up with infections.  That’s what the data says.  That’s what medical and public health experts say.  The evidence says that face coverings are a key deterrent.  What metrics is the Texas Governor looking for?

Stop this macho BS.  Give the Mayors the authority.  It’s about the health of our state.  It is not about the Governor admitting he got it wrong.

Who in this state thinks we are heading in the right direction when it comes to dealing with the pandemic?

The Governor is certainly hellbent on winning the title of worse Governor to handle Pandemic 2020.

The pancake syrup company Aunt Jemima is reportedly changing its name and imaging in the wake of renewed calls for racial equality. 

The company reportedly said that the iconic Aunt Jemima figure on its packaging is “based on a racial stereotype,” NBC news reports. The brand is owned by Quaker Oats, and reportedly released the info in a press release.

Parent company PepsiCo told AdWeek that the new name for the syrup and other products will be announced at a later date, but that consumers will start to see new packaging without the Aunt Jemima image in the fourth quarter of this year.

Uncle Ben’s, you are on the clock.

Commentary in now a Hodgson Mill guy.  For the last 15 or so years.  I can only get it at Central Market these days.

There is nothing on the MLB and players today.
