At Last!

The Best TV Moment of the Day Award goes to the First Dance with Beyonce singing “At Last.” TV doesn’t get any better than that.

The Runner-Up TV Moment of the Day Award goes to the camera shots of the National Mall in HDTV.

The Headgear of the Day Award goes to Aretha.

The Mangler of the Day Award goes to the Chief Justice.

The Bummer of the Day Award goes to the Lone Star State’s Junior Senator for holding up Hillary’s confirmation.

Move over Mayor Bob. CEWDEM just weighed in on the H-Town Mayoral Campaign. Drum roll please……CEWDEM is getting behind City Controller Annise Parker. Advantage Annise since CEWDEM has access to email addresses for just about every key Dem in H-Town. Annise will officially kick-off her campaign in a couple of weeks – cool.

He’s Backe! Times are hard for sure. The ‘Stros signed pitcher Brandon Backe to a one year deal. Of course my buddy Edgar says not to judge Backe too harshly. He says last year was a so called rehab year. Let’s hope Edgar is right and Backe’s pitches don’t leave The Yard.
