Selena 50

Selena would be 50 today.  She was just fixing to turn 23 when she was murdered. “Selena” the movie is one of those flicks that I just stop and watch if I come across it.  I last saw it at my Dad’s house. What could have been. I miss her so much.

What’s up with State Rep. Harold Dutton supporting constitutional carry? 

Constitutional carry. Voter suppression. Anti-trans kids.  We have an extremist Texas legislature. What an embarrassment.

From CBS Sports:

The Atlantic League, an eight-team independent partner league of Major League Baseball, will experiment with moving the pitcher’s mound back 12 inches in 2021, the leagues announced Wednesday.

I am sure the baseball purist won’t like this.  Right now, it is 60 feet and 6 inches from the mound to home plate. They will experiment with 61 feet and 6 inches. Back in the late 1960s, they lowered the height of the mound.  I won’t sweat it.

The Astros are in Seattle this weekend.
