How Stupid Can You Be?

The story starts off simply enough.

HOUSTON – A Houston woman has been arrested in the hit-and-run death of and 8-year-old girl.
Vilma Rivas Buchala, 45, is charged with failure to stop and render aid.

Tragic, but not exceptionally interesting (a tragedy in itself) until you read on. (more…)

Farewell Farouk!

The blundering fool Farouk Shami’s bid to become Texas’s next governor is over! Ex-Houston Mayor Bill White soundly defeated him and like 19 other candidates. I’ve already covered why I’m am so anti-Farouk Here and Here so I won’t revisit that. But if you need another reason to hate him, listen to this song… (more…)

Yes, He Had To Die

Thursday, 18 year old Jose De La Rosa was shot by Harris County Sheriff’s deputies after he shot four people, killing two of them and then pulled a gun on the deputies. Now KHOU has this bleeding heart story asking whether or not Jose had to die.

I saw the guy sit down at a restaurant with his driver, and then send his driver to sit at another table. He thinks because he has worked hard and lived the American dream (I can respect that) that he can be governor. Governor of the state of Texas! It’s ridiculous to even think of. Now this ridiculous man has taken another step to show how misguided and out of touch with reality he is (more…)

Anatomy of a Blown Save

I just watched a catastrophic and thoroughly entertaining melt down in the top of the ninth at Minute Maid Park. Jose Valverde was brought in to close the game with the Astros leading 3-2. He promptly got a first out and things were looking good for the ‘Stros. I wanted the Astros to win, but honestly I enjoyed being there for this ending more than I would have enjoyed seeing them win 3-2.

Is this the new “it” thing?

Fighting happens in baseball. But it appears time are changing. No more is it enough to fight the other team. Nowadays it appears even scrapping with your own team is not satisfying some of the guys. They’ve turned their attention to the front office.
