GOP U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel was in town yesterday to talk to the Greater Houston Partnership about immigration reform. According to the Chron, the Cornhusker says the U.S. economy depends on paperless folks. He goes on to say "it's a fact of life."
The Partnership's CEO, Jeff Mosely, a former GOP appointee on paperless folks - "if we lost them, our economy would shut down."
I'm still waiting for key Dem leaders to speak out and get good media run on this issue. Are key Dem leaders speaking out and not getting covered or are they just too scared to speak out?
You know the GOP is circling the drain on this one when the Texas GOP Chair starts to inject the "H L" words - "Hollywood Liberals" - also according to today's Chron. Was that Barbara Streisand and Rob Reiner shopping at First Colony Mall the other day?
I really would hate to be a GOP operative or consultant working for one of the GOP CD 22 wanabees. What do you do with folks that want to volunteer? They must be as busy as Floyd's Barber Shop in Mayberry.
Speaking of trying to be cool, a pitcher spot opened up on the National League All-Star team and Scrap Iron offered it to Roy O. Roy O. is mulling over whether or not he wants to go. Pleeeeeeese!
Speaking of the yard, HDL, a fella that knows quite a bit about Latino voter turnout in these parts, wants the Astros to make a deal for Carl Crawford. Crawford is the former Davis High (in Houston) standout that plays outfield for the going nowhere Tampa Bay Devil Rays. Crawford is batting .323 with 13 dingers, 103 hits, 7 triples, and 32 stolen bases. Getting Crawford would not be a bad move, providing we didn't have to give away too much talent in return.
This weekend wouldn't be a bad time to visit the yard. Three games against Albert and the Cardinals. Two of the games on national TV. Only three games behind. Roger tomorrow afternoon. "Cool" Roy O. Sunday evening. You know, I've noticed that a lot more Houstonians are into the 'Stros. That's great!
