Masking Again

Commentary is going to be honest. Something about this fella I never liked since I first heard of him and saw him at Democratic Party club meetings and such a few years ago.  Here is this from the Chron:  

A Harris County civil court judge has resigned amid several allegations of judicial misconduct, including showing bias or prejudice toward litigants and attorneys on the basis of race, sex or socioeconomic status, according to the State Commission on Judicial Conduct. 

George Barnstone, of Harris County Civil Court at Law No. 1, was the subject of six complaints encompassing at least seven allegations of misconduct.

He signed the agreement on July 12, records show, and state commission Chair David Hall approved the decision Monday.

Yes, there is a new car shortage out there. My Escape lost its heartbeat yesterday and rather than wait for a revival of sorts, I went the new car route. It is what it is. 

The Astros celebrated Jose Altuve’s 10th anniversary of his MLB debut yesterday. Altuve had two dingers and that’s all you need to know.
