Eighty years ago today, Pearl Harbor was attacked by Japanese naval forces. Remember.

Harris County Department of Education Trustee Erica Davis is running for Harris County Judge against Judge Lina Hidalgo in the Democratic Party primary.  I don’t think I have run into a Democrat who thinks Judge Hidalgo is not doing a good job. Sure, there have been missteps like the recent dumb contract deal. She should have fired a couple or so staffers.   

I have no idea why Trustee Davis is running and who is behind her. Evan Mintz thinks Harris County Constable Alan Rosen has a hand in this.  I guess we will find out.
