¡Viva Mexico!

It’s Mexico’s Independence Day.

Yes, I am a proud Mexican American.

This year we didn’t have the Fiestas Patrias Parade. Oh, well.

I will probably check out some Pandora YouTubes this evening while watching the Astros.

We have 48 days until Election Day 2020 and Erica Grieder has a column today on the Texas AG’s race in 2022.   Former Galveston mayor Joe Jaworski is running.  Here is the column: https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/columnists/grieder/article/Texas-AG-s-race-has-already-begun-15570145.php.

Donald Trump is going after former Vice President Joe Biden on his cognitive skills by referring to him as Sleepy Joe or Slow Joe.  Last night Trump said something about herd mentality – huh?  It is herd immunity. He said he upplayed the virus not downplayed – upplayed doesn’t exist in the dictionary.  He also went after Biden for not implementing the mask mandate – huh?  In all fairness, Biden is the leader of the Democratic Party and all the Dems I know wear a mask.

The first debate is in 13 days.

Jim Cramer is an idiot.  We can all agree on that.

Harris County Commissioners Court keeps doing its thing.  Check this out on Harris County toll road revenue: https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Harris-County-may-create-corporation-to-free-up-15569039.php.

Infielder Hector Torres played for the Astros for four years in the late ‘60s and early 70s.  He was born on this day 75 years ago In Monterrey, Mexico.  ¡Feliz cumpleaños!

MLB came out with its playoff schedule and locations.  As long as the games are on TV, it doesn’t matter much to me.  We still don’t get to go to the games.  Just so you know, an NLDS series will be held at The Yard.  Maybe the whiny Dodgers will get to play here. That would be funny.

We got a scare last night when Carlos Correa went down.  Now it looks like he is day to day.  

We won last night.

Commentary said this yesterday:

We are up against a GOP that is going all out to destroy our nation’s postal service and suppress our vote.

This is how Royko responded:

Calling BULLCHIPS on that statement. It is a bald-faced lie.

The USPS is self-funding, so they can raise the price of postage to any amount they want.

It is the poor service, and union legacy costs that have crippled the USPS.

Up until the last few years, due to Trump’s influence, they are now actually able to track the mail close to what UPS and FedEx have had for decades.

Do you really think the majority of the public believes the USPS gives a rat’s keister if the mail is delivered in a timely manner?

Supposedly, that’s why all the government assistance is now electronic, so the poor folks and seniors don’t have to rely on the post office anymore.

No properly register voter, with proper ID, has been denied the ability to go to a polling location to cast their vote by any Republican.

United States Postal Service.  Service.

I don’t think some folks have gotten the memo on the GOP’s effort to suppress the vote.  Either that or they have never heard of the Wisconsin State Supreme Court or AG Ken Paxton.   We are in the worse pandemic in a century.  Why can’t we all vote by mail?

Oh, well.

I don’t know why, but about a month or so ago I started receiving the Trump emails.  They must have me mixed up with someone else because they don’t address me by my real first name. The emails are just as vile as the crap that spews out of his worthless pie hole.

The local Democratic Party emails me stuff and addresses me as Kent.

Albert Pujols had a dinger on Sunday that now has him tied for fifth in career dingers with Willie Mays at 660.  Wow!

Just do you know, Barry Bonds is number 1 with 762, followed by Hank Aaron at 755, Babe Ruth with 714, and A-Rod with 696.

60 of Pujols’ dingers have come at the expense of Astros pitchers – tops in MLB. 31 at The Yard, outside of his home cribs in San Luis and Anaheim – also tops in MLB.

38 of Mays’ dingers have come at the expense of H-Town pitching.  11 at the Dome and 8 at Colt Stadium.

To put it in perspective, Pujols has played in 292 games against the Astros.  Mays played in 185 games against the Astros/Colt 45s.

Now you know.

The Rangers visit The Yard this evening.

50 Days

Election Day is in 50 days.  Mail ballots will be sent out here in Harris County at the end of this week.  Early Voting in Person begins 4 weeks from tomorrow.

Let’s stay focused, fellow Democrats.  We are up against a GOP that is going all out to destroy our nation’s postal service and suppress our vote.

Danuel House, Jr. is a Rocket most folks had never heard of.  We do now.  He violated the rules of the NBA bubble by having an unauthorized guest in his room for a few hours and was booted out of the playoffs. 

I wish we had rules like that outside of the bubble in the real world.   Commentary has said before that I am careful when I have to go out.  One slip up and I could be a goner.  It gets old, but I have no other choice.

The GOP just doesn’t give a darn about your life or mine because they are Ok with Donald Trump’s rallies without social distancing and face masks.  The GOP doesn’t give a rat’s arse about Trump not being straight with the rest of us on the severity of COVID-19 early on.  Next time they try to lecture you on the sanctity of life, tell them in no uncertain terms to go fu_k themselves.

Dr. Anthony Fauci said this past Friday that we are going to be dealing with this until mid-next year at the earliest.  Thank you, GOP.  You should be getting my thank you card no later than November 3.

A Harris County State District Judge is Ok with the Harris County Clerk sending out vote-by-mail applications to all registered voters. 

Kuffer has a copy of the County’s application here: http://www.offthekuff.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/MailBallotApplication.png.

I don’t like the County’s application.  If I was under 65, I probably wouldn’t be convinced to use the disability excuse.

The application that we put together had this language from the Texas Secretary of State’s Election Advisory from last April:

One of the grounds for voting by mail is disability. The Election Code defines “disability” to include “a sickness or physical condition that prevents the voter from appearing at the polling place on election day without a likelihood of needing personal assistance or of injuring the voter’s health.” (Sec. 82.002). Voters who meet this definition and wish to vote a ballot by mail must submit an application for ballot by mail.

Then we added the following language to our application:

These ballots make it easy to cast a vote from the convenience of your own home and avoid going to a voting location. Make sure your voice is heard.

VOTE BY MAIL: The Safe and Easy Way to Vote.

SIGN AND RETURN YOUR APPLICATION TODAY! For assistance please call (713) ***-****

3 SIMPLE STEPS

1. Check the disability box.

2. Sign your name on the signature line.

3. Tear off the application, stamp and mail it. TODAY!

The Secretary of State was “fine” with our language.

The Secretary of State is opposing the County’s attempt to send out the application.

I saw this tweet over the weekend:

Some lady in Publix just told me I should be ashamed of myself for wearing this and disrespecting the President so I told her she should be ashamed of herself for calling him a President. She didn’t like that.

She was wearing a face mask that said “Fu_k Trump.”

Way to go!

Let’s talk MLB playoffs.  This is from MLB.com’s Anthony Castrovince:

How many teams will reach the postseason?

Sixteen — eight from the American League, eight from the National League.

How many rounds will be played?

As has been the case since 2012, there will be four rounds. But instead of a round featuring a sudden-death Wild Card Game with the division winners resting, the format will be as follows:

Wild Card Series (best-of-three, with all games at the higher seed’s home ballpark): No. 1 seed vs. No. 8; No. 2 vs. No. 7; No. 3 vs. No. 6; No. 4 vs. No. 5.

Division Series (best-of-five, with traditional 2-2-1 home/road format): Winner of 1-8 vs. Winner of 4-5; Winner of 2-7 vs. Winner of 3-6. Home-field advantage goes to the higher seed.

League Championship Series (best-of-seven, with traditional 2-3-2 home/road format): Winner of 1-4-5-8 vs. Winner of 2-3-6-7. Home-field advantage goes to the higher seed.

World Series (best-of-seven, with traditional 2-3-2 home/road format): AL champion vs. NL champion. Home-field advantage goes to the team with the superior regular-season record.

How will the teams be seeded?

The top three seeds (Nos. 1-3) in each league will go to the three division winners (East, Central, West) in order of record.

The next three seeds (Nos. 4-6) will go to the three teams that finish in second place in their division, in order of record.

The final two seeds (Nos. 7-8) will go to the two teams with the next best records, regardless of division and division standing. Because the first- and second-place teams in each division automatically advance to October, the 7 and 8 seeds are the actual “Wild Card teams.”

What if there’s a tie (for a division championship or other postseason spot) at the conclusion of the regular season?

All ties will be resolved mathematically. No additional games will be played to break any ties. With an expanded postseason field, there is less incentive to play additional games, and this method allows for an expedited schedule that doesn’t push the World Series into November.

The first tiebreaker is head-to-head record (if applicable). If that’s also a tie, the next tiebreaker is intra-division record. If that’s still a tie, the next is record in the final 20 division games (plus one until the tie is broken).

So the Division Series could technically feature zero division winners?

Correct. Every team has to fight its way to that second round.

Will this postseason structure be used in future years?

This format is only in effect for 2020. As with all things related to the pandemic, there is always a chance of scheduling and other changes in 2021. But any temporary or permanent changes to postseason structure must be collectively bargained. The current Collective Bargaining Agreement expires after 2021.

When does the postseason begin?

The best-of-three Wild Card Series will run from Tuesday, Sept. 29, through Friday, Oct. 2. The entire postseason schedule will be announced in the weeks ahead.

Who will broadcast the expanded Wild Card round?

ESPN will televise seven of the eight series. TBS will carry the other.

There is now discussion about going to a bubble format in terms of where the playoff games are played.  I saw this from Channel 13 News:

Under the plan, the World Series would start Oct. 20 at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, and would end no later than Oct. 28.

It would culminate a month of playoff games that begins with the top four seeds in each league hosting all the games in a best-of-three wild-card series. The four American League series would run Sept. 29, Sept. 30 and Oct. 1, and the National League would play Sept. 30, Oct. 1 and Oct. 2.

The highest remaining seed in the NL would play its division series in Arlington, while the next-highest seed would face its opponent at Houston’s Minute Maid Park. The top seed from the AL would be the home team at San Diego’s Petco Park, while the other series would be held at Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium. The AL Championship Series would take place in San Diego and the NLCS in Arlington, giving the NL’s top seed — likely the Los Angeles Dodgers — a path to a stationary October.

Concerns from Dodgers players, which were first reported by The Athletic, underscore the chasm between the sides. Because MLB players have spent the season outside of a bubble — and, in many cases, around their families — the desire of some players to continue operating without the restrictions of a bubble are being voiced by the union, sources said.

Got it?

Former MLBer Turk Farrell pitched 14 seasons in the bigs including a few years with the Colt 45s and Astros.  He was an original member of the H-Town franchise.  He represented H-Town at the All Star Game three different seasons.  He died in 1977 in a car accident.  The Athletic ran a story this past week that said Farrell was the biological father of former MLBer Richard Dotson who played for the White Sox for most of his 12-year career.  Farrell and Dotson never met.

Their cutouts were next to each other at this past Friday night’s game at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago.

The Rockets are done.

That was as lousy a roadie as you could have.  We have 13 games remaining.  6 at The Yard and the final 7 on the road.  No game today.

September 11

It was 19 years ago today.  Remember.

The Chron E-Board has a take today on September 11 and COVID-19.  It has to do with how September 11 changed our lives as is or will COVID-19.  Check out the E-Board take if you can.

Fans at Arrowhead last night booed when players for Kansas City and the Texans had their moment of unity and the booing is why players have their moment of unity. 

I didn’t even notice but we are now second in the country for most COVID-19 infections behind California.  If California and Texas were countries, we’d be holding down the number 8 spot in the world for infections.  Thanks, Gov. Greg Abbott.

Meanwhile, Gov. Abbott and his fellow Texas GOP bozos are pledging to take away a city’s annexation authority if they defund their police.  They mightily try to get folks to take their eyes off of their COVID-19 response.  Nice try, but it is not working.  Folks aren’t heading to the polls with defunding cops on their minds. These guys are a joke.

It looks like Robert E. Lee High in Baytown will remain Robert E. Lee High.  The school board there decided to keep the name on a 4-3 vote.  Oh, well.

The Rockets lost yesterday.

The Texans lost yesterday.

The Astros lost yesterday and have a rare off day for a Friday. At Dodger Stadium tomorrow and Sunday evenings we will be on national TV – Fox and ESPN.

Stay safe this weekend.

Woodward Tapes

Commentary was one of those who thought the 2016 election was over when the Access Hollywood tapes came out a month before the election.  Then a couple or so weeks later, then FBI Director James Comey dropped the October surprise and muddled stuff up.  Then election day happened.

The pandemic has greatly altered our lives in 2020.  It is not just wearing a mask, washing our hands, and social distancing.  A lot of folks have lost their jobs.  Many are working from home.  Businesses are permanently closing. Schools are going virtual.  Virtual schooling is frustrating families.  Many avoid restaurants and movie theaters.  We can’t go to ballgames or concerts.  Oh yeah, over 6 million in the USA have gotten infected by COVID-19, 190,000 have died and we are not done.

More and more folks are realizing that there is something structurally wrong here at home when the most powerful nation in the world leads all countries in infections and deaths.  Why did it have to happen like this?

From the very beginning, Donald Trump mishandled, didn’t take seriously, and downplayed the pandemic.  We watched on live TV the lies, denials and chaos coming out of the briefing room.  When the reopening occurred in May and infections spiked through the roof, Trump’s approval numbers on his handling of the virus sank and now about two-thirds of the voters disapprove.

Now we have him on tape.

I am not going to spend a lot of time analyzing Donald Trump’s base. They are still with him.  They don’ care.

It’s the other folks who voted for him in 2016 who have had enough.  With less than eight weeks until November 3, I don’t think they are going to vote for him this time.

The Woodward tapes are a lot stronger than the Access Hollywood tapes because of the instability of the current situation. A huge difference.

On a related matter, the White House Corona Task Force should be disbanded.  They stood idly by and did nothing.  They too knew.

Meanwhile, Gov. Greg Abbott and his fellow Texas GOP bozos are trying to get folks to forget about COVID-19 and are promoting a pledge to back the blue and reject defunding the police.  Oh, brother.  That’s what happens when these bozos blindly follow Trump.  Is this the best they can do? Pitiful.

Changing the subject.

In the MLB community, some folks led by Latinos, want to retire the number 21 that was worn by Hall of Fame great Roberto Clemente.  I am 100% for that. Just so you know, here are the following number 21 jerseys that have been retired by MLB teams:

Hall of Fame pitching great Bob Lemon by Cleveland, Hall of Fame pitching great Warren Spahn, by Milwaukee (now The ATL), and Clemente by Pittsburgh. 

The Astros, Rockets and Texans all play today.  The last time that our MLB, NFL and NBA teams played on the same day was on October 12, 1980.  That day, the Astros lost the NLCS 3-2 to the Phillies in final Game 5.  The Oilers lost to the Chiefs at Arrowhead and the Rockets lost to the Lakers at The Forum.

My Best Friend and I were at Game 5 that evening.

I don’t have much to say about losing another game we easily could have won.

Roberto Clemente Day

Gov. Greg Abbott extended the pandemic disaster declaration yesterday while Donald Trump held a campaign rally without masks and social distancing.  Get all your friends and family to vote.

Commentary said this on Friday:

Pro-choice folks who didn’t want pro-choice Planned Parenthood to endorse pro-choice GOP State Rep. Sarah Davis because pro-choice GOP State Rep. Sarah Davis is not a pro-choice Democrat didn’t get their way as pro-choice Planned Parenthood endorsed pro-choice GOP State Rep. Sarah Davis.

Erica Grieder’s Chron Column today is about the Planned Parenthood decision and it ends like this:

But in the meantime, it’s hard to fault the nonpartisan groups that have looked at Davis’ record, and decided to support her return to the legislature.

Here is Grieder’s entire column: https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/columnists/grieder/article/Backlash-to-Planned-Parenthood-endorsement-of-15551469.php.

Some folks would say that Planned Parenthood isn’t nonpartisan. 

Stace wasn’t too happy with Planned Parenthood here: https://doscentavos.net/2020/09/05/planned-parenthood-picks-anti-immigrant-republican-over-democrat/.

I participated in a phone survey on the election last night on the presidential race and Gov. Greg Abbott’s approval.  They asked for age, party affiliation, liberal/conservative, income, gender, rural/suburban/urban, but no ethnicity.  You know how Commentary responded.

Luby’s will soon be shutting its doors, unless someone steps in and saves them.  Every now and then Luby’s in Baytown is where I pick up LuAnn takeout for my Dad.  The last time was this past Sunday. No mas.

The LC Cafeteria in Downtown H-Town left us a long time ago.  Same goes for Wyatt’s and the Piccadilly Cafeterias.  How many cafeterias are still around H-Town?  The Dinner Bell and Cleburne is all I know.

Speaking of grub, Commentary isn’t going to get all worked up on Whataburger becoming the official burger of the Cowboys.  I don’t hate the Cowboys. I just don’t root for them against anyone they play.  They do have a few Super Bowl rings and we’ve never gone to a Super Bowl.  Like it or not there are more Cowboys fans in Texas than there are Texans fans.  Cowboys games are carried on 43 radio stations across Texas.  25 for the Texans.

Today is Roberto Clemente Day in MLB.  I remember hearing on the car radio the day he disappeared on a flight from Puerto Rico to Nicaragua during the Christmas holidays in 1972.  He was on a chartered plane delivering supplies to Nicaraguans after they were hit by an earthquake.  His body was never found.

He had 3,000 career base hits. A .317 career batting average.  He led MLB 4 times in season batting average.  He was the 1966 NL MVP. He won two World Series rings.  He was selected to 15 All Star games and an 11-time Gold Glove winner.  He was a great right fielder.

My favorite Clemente memory was one time at the Dome, he was on one knee in the on deck circle and a foul ball dribbled to him and he picked it up and threw it over his shoulder into the stands.  I had never seen a player do that before and I thought it was so cool. It is done all the time these days. 

In 2002, we visited PNC Park, one of the best MLB cribs in Commentary’s opinion.  Clemente has a statue there and the bridge that leads up to the ballpark is named after him.  Our hotel was a few blocks from PNC, and we walked across the bridge when we went to the games.  Cool.

Roberto Clemente wore the number 21.  Puerto Ricans Carlos Correa and Martin Maldonado will wear the 21 today for the Astros..

We finally won one last night and ended our losing streak.

Two Realities

On a regular basis I run across retweets of Texas GOP elected officials campaigning and they are not wearing masks.  I run across tweets of Democratic elected officials campaigning and they are always wearing masks.  Our Democratic nominee for Vice President, Sen. Kamala Harris, got off her plane in Wisconsin and was wearing a mask.  We are definitely living in two realities hear in the US.  It’s like the GOP is trying to send a message that all is well.  That’s too bad.

I watched Gloria Borger’s two-hour piece on former Vice President Joe Biden on CNN last night. It was good and I recommend folks watch it.  It had warts and all as they say.  The warts being the plagiarism, the shabby treatment of Anita Hill, Hunter and other stuff.  Nice job.

I was watching Sen. Harris talk to supporters yesterday and she mentioned that her birthday was next month on October 20.  That is a day before Commentary’s birthday.  Cool.

She was also campaigning in sneakers. That was also cool.

I watched Donald Trump’s press conference yesterday and he was definitely flailing away.  He is like throwing everything and hoping something lands.

The Chron has a frontpage story today on Gov. Greg Abbott and why he hasn’t called a special session.  As far as Commentary is concerned, the damage has already been done and I don’t think a special session would resolve anything. The pandemic has become political.  It’s going to have to take a new occupant at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to clean up the mess in Texas and throughout the country.

J.J. Watt was on the third hour of “Today” this morning.

8 weeks.  That’s all we have left.

Three weeks from tonight is the first debate.

The Rockets play tonight.

We lost our fifth in a row last night.  We have a doubleheader that starts at 5 pn today.  Both games are 7 inning affairs.  We are the home team for the opener.  Zack Greinke is on the mound and Alex Bregman is back in the lineup.

Losing Another Great

It’s Labor Day but it doesn’t feel like it.  When it comes to the pandemic, we are not rounding the corner.

Commentary watched the interview with our vice-presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris on CNN yesterday.  The interview was conducted by Dana Bash.  I have come to the conclusion that Bash is the best interviewer on TV these days.  She is good.

Some outfit out of Austin called the Voter Participation Center sent a voter registration application to my Dad’s home.  Thanks, but everybody there is registered to vote.

I was at my Dad’s yesterday and I told him that Donald Trump thought he was a loser and sucker and too stupid to vote for Trump.  My Dad got a laugh out of that. My Dad’s a WWII vet and Latino.

If we learned anything in 2016 is it ain’t over until its over.  We have 57 days left until Election Day.  Early Voting in Person starts in 36 days.  Mail ballots hit in two and a half weeks or so.   Keep working on how you can get more voters engaged.  Don’t let up.

Wow!  We lost another Hall of Fame great yesterday.  Commentary is talking about Lou Brock. He had 3,023 career base hits. 938 stolen bases.  Tied for most career base steals in World Series play.  Two World Series rings. Not bad at all.

The Rockets are back on the court tomorrow night.

We got swept in Anaheim this past weekend.  We easily could have swept the four.  Commentary is not going to get all freaked out because if anything, it’s 2020. We got a lot of our players dinged up, but so do other teams.  The regular season is over in 20 days.  We are in Oakland for five starting this evening.

Labor Day Weekend

We lost Hall of Fame great Tom Seaver a couple of days ago.  Tom Terrific was a class act.  On of the best pitchers of all time.

Commentary has always said that “The Godfather” and “The Godfather: Part II” are the best two movies of all time.  “The Godfather: Part III” is getting a new ending and beginning.  From director Francis Ford Coppola: “For this version of the finale, I created a new beginning and ending, and rearranged some scenes, shots, and music cues. With these changes and the restored footage and sound, to me, it is a more appropriate conclusion to ‘The Godfather’ and ‘The Godfather: Part II’ and I’m thankful to Jim Gianopulos and Paramount for allowing me to revisit it.”

It would have helped if Robert Duvall had been signed for III, but nooooo.

I guess I will have to check it out.  Just don’t mess with the first two.

The new James Bond movie is “No Time to Die.”

Name the other three Bond flicks with “die” in the title?

Commentary doesn’t get all into the articles about Donald Trump denigrating the troops, vets, or POWs.  His base doesn’t give a rat’s arse.  His loyal GOP elected defenders have to live with this.  Those that tell this to the media are arseholes for working for him in the first place.  Let’s end this on November 3.

What a moron.  Commentary is talking about Gov. Greg Abbott saying he would support legislation to have the state take over the Austin Police Department.  He is an embarrassment. COVID-19 has exposed him as a two-bit phony.  What a joke.

Pro-choice folks who didn’t want pro-choice Planned Parenthood to endorse pro-choice GOP State Rep. Sarah Davis because pro-choice GOP State Rep. Sarah Davis is not a pro-choice Democrat didn’t get their way as pro-choice Planned Parenthood endorsed pro-choice GOP State Rep. Sarah Davis.

“Live and Let Die”, “Tomorrow Never Dies”, and “Die Another Day” are the three other James Bond flicks with “die” in the title of course.

We start an 11-game roadie in California this evening.  For 2 of the games we will be the home team and bat last because they were games that were originally scheduled for The Yard but were postponed because of Hurricane Laura and a COVID-19 positive test.

We will play 4 in Anaheim this weekend with a doubleheader tomorrow.  We are the home team in tomorrow’s nightcap.

We then play 5 in Oakland starting on Labor Day.  We will play a doubleheader on Tuesday and are the home team in the opener.

We have next Friday off and then play 2 at Dodger Stadium.  Next Saturday’s game is a night game that will be on Fox.  The following Sunday we will be on ESPN Sunday Night Baseball.

Got it?

Tonight’s game starts at 8 pm.

Can we enjoy the Labor Day weekend without being super spreaders?  We can spend a couple of evenings watching the Rockets.  Take it easy, play it safe, and don’t do anything stupid, please.

Lousy Chron Headline

The Houston Chronicle was very irresponsible with their lead headline today in the hard copy.  Here it is:

CDC tells states to get ready for vaccine

Here is how the story starts out:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has notified public health officials in all 50 states and five large cities to prepare to distribute a coronavirus vaccine to health care workers and other high-risk groups as soon as late October or early November.

This is a shame.  The Donald Trump folks are telling the CDC to put this out to raise hopes right before the November 3 election.  This is not front page worthy.  Medical talking heads poo pooed this yesterday and said it could also have folks lose confidence in a vaccine.  We are not near a vaccine.  A couple of medical experts said on CNN yesterday that they wouldn’t take a vaccine at the end of next month. Thanks for falling for the BS, Chron.  What are they thinking?

Some pro-choice folks don’t want pro-choice Planned Parenthood to endorse pro-choice GOP State Rep. Sarah Davis. Got it?  Here is the Chron story: https://www.houstonchronicle.com/politics/houston/article/abortion-activist-houston-republican-planned-texas-15538928.php.

Commentary’s take is it sounds like the pro-choice folks don’t want pro-choice Planned Parenthood to endorse pro-choice GOP State Rep. Sarah Davis because pro-choice GOP State Rep. Sarah Davis is not a pro-choice Democrat.

Some folks have opined for a long time that Planned Parenthood was an extension of the Democratic Party.  Stay tuned.

Commentary is not going to defend U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for stepping in it big time.  This isn’t going to move a single vote, but still.  Doesn’t she have smart people working for her that can check out what the guidelines are for hair salons.  Dumb. Dumb. Dumb.

The Rockets advance and now play the other team from LA. Okay, Okay.  I need to show more respect for the Lakers and LeBron. 

The Astros also held on to win.  We wrap up the homie today against the Rangers at 1 pm.
