Commentary has a disagreement going with his favorite non-profit. Their C4 took a hike when it came to endorsing in the Texas House District 27 Dem Party Primary race. District 27 falls entirely within the non-profit's service area. Commentary's client, Steve Brown was 100% on his C4 questionnaire. Brown's opponent, the Dem incumbent, is ANTI CHOICE. The usual suspects were successful in getting the C4 to stay out of the race, tsk, tsk, tsk .... they say they will work to rehabilitate the Dem incumbent, sure. Commentary thinks the C4 copped out on its mission purpose and so I had no CHOICE (pun intended) but to resign from the C4 Board. Can you spare a buck and send Steve, the only PRO CHOICE candidate in the race, some last minute moola?

From today's Chron: Civil rights leader, former Atlanta Mayor, and former United Nations Ambassador Andrew Young will be a spokesperson for Wal-Mart. He'll say good things about them. Said Young, "the critics (errr, you guys) have it wrong." He'll head up Working Families for Wal-Mart.

Also in today's Chron, a story about the GOP Primary race for County Treasurer. Hey, they - the Chron - don't cover a Texas House race (District 27) where the winner will vote on issues like taxes, funding public education, and CHOICE, but they'll cover a race where the officeholder does absolutely nothing. Hey somebody close to Commentary that knows politics didn't even know there was a race for County Treasurer.

One of Commentary's goddaughter's was born on February 29 - some years ago. Is today her birthday or is tomorrow her birthday? She reads Daily Commentary, so in case I forget, Happy Birthday today or Happy Birthday tomorrow!

Another memorable TV character is gone, this time Chester Goode from "Gunsmoke." Dennis Weaver passed away last Friday. I'll always remember Chester calling out to Matthew, "Mr. Dillon, Mr. Dillon." Weaver actually won an Emmy Award for the role.
