Woah! What's up with the Austin newspaper taking a major whack at Glen Maxey in an
editorial today. Glen must have really p____d them off. I guess newspaper
E-Boards know how to run state political parties. I finally got a mail piece from
Boyd Richie yesterday. He wants to promote inclusion. Great! How about
exclusion? How about excluding the folks that have been running the party for
awhile - the same folks that have run the party into the ground.
I went to the yard yesterday with the Young Political Consultant that works for
Commentary. It was an afternoon weekday game. Lot of folks played hooky from work.
Parking was tough - lot of folks are already downtown at work. We had to park
along the street by a parking meter. The meter was only good for 2 hours - but we
knew the game would last longer. Lot of fans had to park along the street. The
Parking Gods could have made a killing by sending out the meter patrol - glad they
didn't. Hope One Of My Best Friends will let the Parking Gods know that on weekday
afternoon games, fans deserve a break. It's a little difficult to come out during
the seventh inning stretch to feed the meter. Oh, the 'Stros won thanks to a kid
named Sampson - delighted, awwwww!
