Well, the political scenery has certainly changed. Democrats are now asking, "who
are we going to kick around now?"
I think the road to DC got a bit more difficult for the Dem nominee. The Dems will
be facing a fresh face, so to speak. Let's not forget, the original goal was to get
rid of DeLay, he's now a goner. The goal wasn't to add another member to the D
column. So the mission has been accomplished. Confused?
A big protest march on immigration is set for next Monday, April 10, downtown, at 1
pm - 1pm? Looks like there are now two challenges for the organizers/participants -
1) get a lot of folks there, and 2) make sure kids stay in school and don't show up.
Dress code: walking shoes, sunscreen, head gear, loose fitting clothes, and
anything red, white, and blue. How about getting some folks of the blue eye
persuasion to attend?
Notes from the yard last night. It was one of those moments that you had to
experience - Jeff Bagwell getting introduced. Prolonged applause, sad and
celebratory. Willie Taveras has a great arm. Roy O. was, well, Roy O. Craig
Biggio's heads up play and hustle. Beer prices did not increase, still a modest $7
for a 16 ounce, couldn't find the St. Arnold's. What's up with the Fish's starting
shortstop, rookie Hanley Ramirez from the Dominican Republic - where did he get the
name "Hanley?" By the way, a great game, we won 1-zip.
