My Democratic Party Precinct Chair left us a couple of days ago.  Max Beauregard was a great Democrat.  Precinct 57, the Heights High School neighborhood.

Texas reported 5,489 new COVID-19 infections yesterday – a record.

This is what Gov. Greg Abbott had to say:

“We want to make sure everyone reinforces the best safe practices of wearing a mask, hand sanitation, maintaining safe distance, but importantly, because the spread is so rampant right now, there’s never a reason for you to have to leave your home unless you need to go out. The safest place for you is at your home.”

I don’t know what to say.  He has the power to do more, a lot more.  It is absolutely mind boggling that he won’t use his power.

Everyone knows the Kung plus the flu words combined is racist.  Even Kellyanne Conway says it is racist.  Donald Trump used the racist term again last night and the silence from GOP leaders across the country is, well, sadly expected.  What a racist accepting GOP.

I will believe it when I see it.  Commentary is talking about MLB actually playing games. Here is from MLB.com:

MLB has submitted a 60-game regular-season schedule for review by the Players Association. In order to mitigate travel, the schedule would include 10 games for each team against its four divisional opponents, along with 20 games against the opposite league’s corresponding geographical division (for example, the AL East will play the NL East, and so on).

Games with the usual suspect including the Angels, A’s, Mariners and Rangers.  Plus, the D-Backs, Dodgers, Giants, Padres and Rockies.  No Red Sox or Yankees.

More than our fair share of 9 pm starts.  The West Coast thing.

I will believe it when I see it.
