Quality Starts

The national TV networks will pack up their gear and return to the USA this evening and tomorrow after 11 days of non-stop coverage of Queen Elizabeth’s mourning and funeral.  No more dumb stories on where and what Prince Harry and Meghan stand, sit and wear and what receptions they attend.

We’re Numero Uno

As we celebrate Diez y Seis today it is fitting that this is in the September 16 front page of the Chron: The Latino population in Texas may have surpassed the white, non-Latino population, according to new U.S. Census estimates. The American Communities Survey, which is conducted every year, showed the Latino population has reached 11.9 million…

Mealer Trump

GOP Harris County Judge candidate Alexandra del Moral Mealer is a Trumper.  See the featured photo. You can’t have it both ways. During the pandemic when folks were using Zoom to communicate with the outside world, folks would sometimes put an image right next to themselves to promote something.

Hobby Poll

A couple of months ago, local GOPers were high fiving when they learned that the Hobby School of Public Affairs poll had GOP candidate for Harris County Judge Alexandra del Moral Mealer one point behind Judge Lina Hidalgo. The Hobby School released their latest poll yesterday and it shows Judge Hidalgo with a 10-point lead. …

Chickensh_t Chron

Commentary supports local journalism. I have let folks know I subscribe to the Chron hard copy. They take $77 from my bank account every four weeks. I am entitled to let them know they are chickensh-t at times. Like today. Two weeks ago today, their lead front page headline blasted this: Comptroller threatens county budget…
