Darryl Kile

My old pal Bob Mann is no longer with us.  He was former Cong. Bob Krueger’s press secretary and Sen. Ted Kennedy’s press secretary.  We worked together in Krueger’s run for the U.S. Senate in 1978.  He was a pro and very good at his job.  We had good times together.

Donald Trump had a reception last night at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for members of the Republican National Committee.  Here is from a Politico story on the reception:

Many of the attendees at the Tuesday evening party appeared to be maskless, and coughs could be heard in the video.

The super spreading continues.

Seven weeks, baby.  49 days. 

I sure hope the Biden-Harris Transition plan includes sending a fumigating crew to douse the place from top to bottom at noon on January 20, 2021.

AG Bill Barr says DOJ didn’t find any fraud. I could have told them that.

I am sure you have heard that Texas GOP AG Ken Paxton says Harris County illegally created an Elections Administrator.  The Democrats on the Harris County Commissioners Court told him yesterday to shut up.

I nearly spit up my Saint Arnold when I read this part of the Chron on the matter:

Precinct 4 Commissioner Jack Cagle, a Republican, said (Commissioner Rodney) Ellis’s criticism of Paxton was unfounded. The attorney general has a duty to ensure the law is followed, he said.

“When Paxton says we didn’t follow the rules, I don’t think there is some evil intent,” Cagle said.

Paxton and following the rules is the classic oxymoron.

Commentary’s take is a dude that has the FBI looking up his arse shouldn’t be telling us in Harris County how to conduct our elections.

Just so you know, my car sounds through the Christmas holidays is local 99.1 FM, Hallmark Radio Channel 70, Holiday Traditions Channel 73, and Holly Channel 105 all on SiriusXM.  I am also carrying 6 Christmas CDs including Eydie Gorme Y Los Panchos, The Carpenters, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, The Lennon Sisters, and various artists compilations that include Feliciano, Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby, Aretha Franklin and Johnny Mathis.

Josh Reddick said adios to Astros fans here Josh Reddick says farewell to Astros fans – HoustonChronicle.com.

Former Astros/Rockies/San Luis pitcher Darryl Kile left us way to soon at age 33 in June of 2002.  He pitched for us from 1991-1997. He had a 7 to 1 no-no against the Mets at the Dome on September 8, 1993.  There were three future Hall of Famers in the game: Jeff Bagwell, Craig Biggio and Eddie Murray with the Mets.

DK was a three-time NL All Star.  Twice with us and once with San Luis.  In 1997, he won 19 games for us.  He won 20 for San Luis in 2000.

DK’s Astros number 57 has not been retired but no one has worn it since 1997.

DK was born 52 years ago today.
