Guv Dude continues to get no respect, even from W’s Administration. Homeland Security gave out one of them super secret germ warfare lab locations to Kansas over the Lone Star State. Kansas has a Dem Guv who was an early Obama supporter – yikes! Now Dude is whining. I’m betting that Dude will try to get in front of all the stimulant projects that will be parading into the Lone Star State once Obama gives the A-OK.

Commentary got a lot of responses on yesterday’s take on the Parking Gods. Hey, maybe it will be a key issue in the upcoming H-Town Mayoral race.

Speaking of, the Chron.com’s poltical page says another former City Attorney – Ben Hall – who is also on a first name basis with Commentary – is thinking about getting into the H-Town Mayoral race. Annise Parker, Peter Brown, Gene Locke, and Ben Hall – I’m thinking before it is all over one or maybe two end up not taking the ride.

The evening of January 6, I decided to go to a bakery down the street to pick up a couple of bolillos to eat with dinner. I went to a place called “El Bolillo.” It turns out I had to park a block and a half away because folks were lined up to buy those “Rosca de Reyes” cakes that they sell in pizza boxes. While I was standing in line with my two measly bolillos I checked out the wall to wall bins full of sweet rolls and other sweet delicacies. There must have been a kazillion varieties – wow! I bet they have a creative department that produces new stuff. I bet if you hang around there for too long, you’ll be a candidate for serious touching up.

Cabin fever must be hitting Anchorage because Governor Palin is starting to say some not so smart things.

Speaking of not so smart things, one of the Chron’s Sports Columnists wants the ‘Stros to sign Andy Pettitte. I don’t think he belongs at The Yard this season.
