I saw this headline in today’s online Chron and was curious.  

Exclusive: Walmart planning huge new distribution center in Houston as e-commerce competition intensifies 

Then I clicked on the story to read and here is what I found: 

Walmart is investing in a new distribution center in the southeast Houston area as e-commerce continues to light up the city’s industrial real estate market. 

Walmart is developing 1 million square feet of warehouse space in Baytown at 4633 Borusan Road at Cedar Port Trade Center, an distribution facility developed by Dallas-based Hunt Southwest, according to data from the commercial real estate information firm CoStar and two commercial real estate professionals familiar with the transaction. 

The Walmart distribution center will be in Baytown – the most eastern part of Baytown. Not H-Town. That location is about a 40-minute drive from H-Town.  

It will employ folks from Baytown, East Harris County and Chambers County. Here is the entire read: Exclusive: Walmart planning huge new distribution center in Houston (houstonchronicle.com). 

I saw this tweet from my council member yesterday: 

Abbie Kamin 


Big joint committee today on dangers our residents are facing with @UnionPacific continuing to neglect safety of Houstonians and neighborhoods. 

Commentary has learned to live with trains, planes and automobiles in H-Town. I learn the routes and stuff like that. If CM Kamin really wants to do something, she can lead the effort to take the locomotive off of the City of H-Town logo. Now that is doable. A symbolic gesture of sorts. 

Commentary has said it before. I blame many in the GOP for the pandemic mess we are still in. The latest is Sarah Palin testing positive and still going out in public in New York City to grab a bite. That is your GOP and COVID-19. They are dangerous people. Do not even bother to try to defend her actions.

I saw a tweet yesterday that prompts me to say this. If you are a Democratic incumbent office holder and drew an opponent in the primary, you must campaign. Period. I do not care if you have served one term or twenty terms. You must campaign. That includes a field, mail, mail ballot, sign and social media program. Fill out the candidate questionnaires and get screened by the Democratic Party affiliated clubs and organizations. You are inviting trouble if you take it easy.  

Enjoy your NFL Sunday.
