Rick Grifter 

COVID-19 infections are on the rise again. Blame it on the dumbarse unvaccinated. Blame it on a lot of the GOP leadership who are ok if folks aren’t vaccinated.

As expected from the Chron: 

Rhonda Skillern-Jones resigned her Houston Community College trustee seat Friday, a day after federal authorities revealed she had entered a plea agreement in connection with an alleged Houston ISD bribery scheme that occurred while she served on the district’s board, according to the college system.

“The Wizard of Oz” is on TNT this evening at 6 pm. 

On the Hallmark Channel a few nights ago, “Sugar Plum Twist” aired which featured a mostly Latino cast with some Spanish sprinkled in.  It is about a local ballet company preparing for a “Nutcracker” production that includes a salsa infusion of sorts.  It was very entertaining.
