Later on today we'll post on our website the Mayor Pro Tem's Op-Ed that appeared in today's Chron, her letter to constituents, and the article that appeared in today's Chron.

"Educate, Empower, Energize." That's the slogan for Blackdems. They put out their list of endorsed candidates, guess what, they endorsed Steve Brown's opponent in the Texas House District 27 Dem Primary race. So much for empowerment. Steve worked for Sheila Jackson Lee, Rodney Ellis, and Sylvester Turner. He also interned in the Clinton White House. So much for African American cred. Oh, by the way, Blackdem's top leader is on the payroll of Brown's opponent. That counts, right?

W and his boys had a field day going after the French, remember? Turns out W's former energy secretary, Spencer Abraham, is going to work for the U.S. subsidiary of Areva, a mega-company from France. What else is new?

Commentary didn't even recognize Anna Nicole Smith yesterday. Guess if 9 folks are going to decide whether or not you get hundreds of millions of buckos, you better look your best. She actually looked good and presentable.
