Weekend Without, Colorless Lights, Radio Barry, Cardinal Fans, She's Gone

"We are in a war for our culture," says the Texas GOP Chair about the current immigration debate. As Art Linkletter kind of used to say - "GOP leaders often times say the dumbest things." The Texas GOP meets this weekend in San Antonio. This is probably a good weekend for my brothers and sisters in San Antonio to have a "Weekend Without An Immigrant." Let the GOPers make their own beds and let them take sack lunches to the convention hall. Wonder how many GOPers are going to wander over to the great Mexican restaurants and partake in the fine cuisine from south of the border, errr, that they want to fence out? It is probably a good time for Dems to stage a pro immigrant rally near the GOP convention site.

The City of Houston will soon be installing cameras at key intersections to catch folks that run red lights. Let's just hope the cameras are spread around geographically and demographically. Every community ought to have the opportunity to get nailed, not just the communities that have folks of color. We'll be watching.

In NoCal this past Saturday as Barry was batting, this is what fans on the radio heard: "Three and two. Finley runs. The payoff pitch, a swing and a drive to deep cen..." - then the radio went dead. The announcer's mike shut off .. Awwwww!!

"We don't know where we'd be without him," said a St. Louis Cardinal player about Albert Pujols. How about not in first place.

Speaking of the Cards, me and My Best Friend and his kid just got back from St. Louis where we checked out the 'Stros against the Cards. The baseball world always rates Cardinal fans as the best. I have to agree. Everybody wears Cardinal gear - I mean everybody. Albert's gear is hands down the best seller among Redbird folks. Cardinal fan also shows up and hangs around outside of the yard 3 to 4 hours before the game. I'll have more on the Cardinals and their yard later on.

Woke up this morning and Katie was gone. Talk about a feeling of emptiness and loneliness. It feels like I got dumped. I looked around and all her stuff was gone. It's time to move on.
