Hello, July!

Hello, July! We are heading into the Fourth of July weekend. Commentary’s favorite character role named July is July Johnson from the “Lonesome Dove” TV mini-series. July was played by Chris Cooper. My favorite song line with July is from “April Come She Will” by Simon and Garfunkel from “The Graduate” movie soundtrack. Here it…

Go Cass

That was certainly the most compelling, riveting, and explosive two hours of TV I have seen in a while. Cassidy Hutchinson is one courageous American. She can’t be discredited. She interned for GOP Whip Steve Scalise and Sen. Cancun Cruz, err, before he went to Cancun. She was on the phone with Minority Leader Kevin…

Astros Asterisk

Slim Pickings

Lack of leadership is on full display at our Texas State Capitol.  29 days ago, 19 third and fourth graders and 2 teachers were murdered.  Yesterday, the fella who runs the DPS called out the locals and said they botched the response. He called it an “abject failure.” He also said they were chickens for…

Failed Us

“They all failed us,” said the uncle of one of the Uvalde kids who was murdered four weeks ago today. Let me add. State and local law enforcement failed the community of Uvalde. Texas Monthly has an article that went online recently about local and state officials holding back info from the families and public…
