Congratulations to @CarolforTexas, who was re-elected by acclamation today to a third term as Chair of our Senate Democratic Caucus. She’s an impressive, articulate, passionate, and effective leader. #txlege 

I am not surprised by this. She certainly knows how to lead. 

The City of H-Town City Council District G Special Election is today. Did the Chron E-Board endorse in this race.  If they did, I missed it.   

There was a recent Chron story about folks getting killed by their disabled cars that are stranded on H-Town’s freeways. I do my share of driving on our freeways.

Here’s what you need to know about the research and what types of alcohol – if any – can actually protect you from catching Covid. 

According to the report, which studied drinking habits and Covid history during the pandemic, drinking red wine could reduce the risk of Covid infection.

I just hope there isn’t a rush to stock up on red wine.

On a kind of related note, someone got knocked off the heart transplant recipient list because they will not get vaccinated. I am good with that. 

The Baseball Hall of Fame will announce their new inductees this afternoon.  I will try to remember and watch.
