How About Ronnie? Oh My!

“I know I could have given you an easier name and next time I’ll think about that,” said the Houston City Council Woman CD 22 wannabee yesterday to the crowd at the rally in Sugar Land that W attended. Now that’s a pledge that won’t be broken. You see, she has a history of changing her name for political purposes – yikes! How about “Sekula-Reagan in ’08?”

Speaking of W, he tried to explain writing in the CD 22 wannabee on the electronic gizmos and he said to bring a pencil – huh? What did I tell you last week about letting W explain?

Speaking of the election, the Chron poll has Texas ’ GOP U.S. Senator leading among Latino voters – yikes again! Remember the fella that won the State Dem Chair position and said he was going to work on the base? Well, I guess he doesn’t think the Latino vote is part of the base because nobody is working it around here or in other parts of the state. In fact, our Dem Party leaders are cool with Nicky bashing the Latino folks.

“Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!” “The Wizard of Oz “ premiered in 1939, the same year the National Baseball Hall of Fame opened. “Oz” was nominated for five academy awards including best picture but only won two, for Best Song – “Over the Rainbow” and Best Score. Judy Garland received a special Oscar for her performance. “Gone With The Wind” won Best Picture.

You have to hand it to Margaret Hamilton who played The Wicked Witch of the West. Arguably the most memorable character in the history of cinema, we all know someone who has tried to mimic her “I’ll get you my pretty and you’re little dog too!” Hamilton was 36 when she played The Witch. She died in 1985 at the age of 82. What a world, what a world! Happy Halloween!
