Hall of Vile

The Baseball Hall of Fame will announce the new inductees this evening.  Curt Schilling could very well be elected.  For those who don’t know, Schilling is a hater, vile, Donald Trump backer, spews venom on Parler, QAnon disciple, and supported the insurrectionists on January 6.  He’s a four-star arsehole.  I have decided that if he gets into the Hall of Fame, I am not going to let it bother me.

The Hall of Fame ballots were due on December 31.  Some baseball writers who voted for him wanted their ballots back after he voiced his support for the insurrectionists on January 6.  Come on. He’s been a vile arsehole for years now.

Go on the internet and check out what this jerk says if you don’t believe me. He is not a good person.

Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo is being proactive again.  See this from today’s Chron:

Meanwhile, Harris County announced it would launch a new waiting list for the vaccine Tuesday, instead of doling out appointments on a first-come, first-served basis. The change aims to make signing up easier and more equitable for residents not accustomed to reacting speedily on computers or mobile phones when health agencies announce the availability of limited numbers of new vaccination appointments.

Older residents will be made a priority, and the county’s system will randomly choose recipients for appointments, health officials said. The county then will reach out only to those select individuals when new appointments become available, avoiding a scramble for the slots.

“Let me put it bluntly: Getting the COVID-19 vaccine shouldn’t be like the ‘Hunger Games,’” County Judge Lina Hidalgo said. “It shouldn’t be about who can hit refresh on a browser the fastest.”

Registration for the county’s waiting list will be available Tuesday at readyharris.org; residents also can call (832) 927-8787 to sign up. Operators will be available in English, Spanish and Vietnamese.

Great leadership.  It would not surprise me though if the bozos running our state government step in and try to derail Judge Hidalgo’s plan. Just because, I guess.
