This if from “The Wizard of Oz” after Dorothy misses the balloon ride with the Wizard back to Kansas. Glinda, the Good Witch, desends:

DOROTHY: Oh, will you help me?  Can you help me?

GLINDA: You don’t need to be helped any longer. You’ve always had the power to go back to Kansas.

DOROTHY: I have?

SCARECROW: Then why didn’t you tell her before?

GLINDA: Because she wouldn’t have believed me. She had to learn it for herself.

Sometimes I wondered, Glinda made Dorothy go down the Yellow Brick Road.  She met the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion and then killed the Wicked Witch.

Why didn’t you just tell her about her ability when her house landed in Munchkin Land?

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott letting Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff that he “figured it out” on how to impose a face mask order kind of is similar except instead of one Wicked Witch dead, it is probably a few hundred Texans.


When you look at it, that’s the same way he’s handing mail ballots.  While the GOP Attorney General makes hollow threats on mail ballots for those under 65 using the disability excuse, Abbott allows his Secretary of State to review the State Rep. Anna Eastman campaign mail ballot application that encourages using the disability excuse if you are under 65.

It’s CYA Abbott.

Sad. Sad. Sad.

He would be a much better leader if he had signaled earlier on face masks and mail ballots, on how to get it done.


I expect Judge Lina Hidalgo to move forward on face masks and Gov. Abbott can continue to dodge the courageous leadership thing.

Abbott knows we have a potential for a higher body count.  He just wants the locals like Judge Hidalgo and Judge Wolff to make the tough calls.

Someone tweeted a NCAA style bracket for Beatles tunes.  Commentary will participate.

Sir Paul is 78 today.  Happy Birthday, Sir Paul!

All I have to say about the new Bolton book, they are all a bunch of looters.  Every GD one of them.

MLB and players are back to talking.
