Doth Protest Too Much?

Yesterday was cold, dreary, and rainy and still a record crowd attended The Rodeoís Go Tejano Day. Commentary thinks the Latino Rodeo protesters might need some better talking points. Even in a bad economy local Latinos shelled out the buckos to out do last yearís Miley Montana record turnout. Iím betting The Rodeo honchos were doing a lot of high fives and yuk-yukking last night. Commentary is looking forward to seeing how Latino Rodeo protesters spin yesterdayís turnout.

Speaking of, todayís Chron has a piece on Rodeo grub including chicken-fried bacon. I donít think thatís why Latinos packed the house yesterday.

At last Tuesdayís address before the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, The President singled out HISD. Hereís what he said: ďand far too few districts are emulating the example of Houston and Long Beach, and using data to track how much progress a student is making and where that student is struggling.Ē Thatís not bad at all. Next time I run into Abe Saavedra, Iíll offer him a St. Arnold or two.

Commentary checked out the nearly two hour-long Will Ferrell show about you know who on HBO Saturday night. It was OK. He probably could have done better with just 30 minutes worth. Commentary thinks Condi Rice was a good sport for making a cameo appearance and playing herself.

Roy O. and Team USA beat The Netherlands last night. Somebody needs to tell the Dutch that wood cleats isnít going to cut it as Opening Day is now three weeks away.
