Tolerance Levels

Move over Redneck Branch. The newly elected mayor of Carrollton, Texas up in the Metroplex says targeting paperless folks will be his top priority. Commentary hopes that Latinos up there will boycott this pitiful burg. It is interesting to see the variations in tolerance and hate throughout the Lone Star State. Of all the towns, cities, and villages in the H-Town area, I don’t think any have come out and posted wanted signs for paperless folks. In fact the county judge candidate that made paperless folks an issue in the Harris County GOP primary got beat. Ditto goes to Sekula Gibbs Rodriguez Jackson Lee, Jr. in the CD 22 GOP primary. Maybe it has something to do with the stinking water they drink up the Metroplex area.

Meanwhile LULAC is suing the Texas Democratic Party over how delegates to the Dem Convention are chosen. It will be interesting to see how this one turns out. Before Lone Star Dem activists get all riled up, remember, this is the same LULAC that pushed to get the DeLay Congressional Plan overturned.

The Chron has been doing articles on the impact of the increase in the cost of gasoline and food. They did a story on how restaurants are coping. They did one on folks now taking METRO. They did one on folks not tipping as much. There is one today on our schools now running out of funds. The even did a piece on maybe folks not going to The Yard – now that’s a problem!

Commentary watched himself on HDTV yesterday – yikes! Next time I’m hiring a makeup crew.

AFLAC! #8 is 83 today. Happy Birthday Yogi Berra! “You can observe a lot by watching.”

Speaking of it ain’t over ‘til it’s over, Commentary actually thought Dodger pitcher Hiroki Kuroda was on his way to a no-no but then the ‘Stros came though again and ended up sweeping the weekend series out in LA. We’re now a game and a half back and Lance Berkman is #2 in RBIs, average, and dingers in all of MLB.
