  • The PAC behind the two candidates for Decatur School Board which has caused a small uproar over their joint "woke" campaign is some outfit named "Decatur Parents Unite." It sent out mailers over the last two days. We'll figure out who is behind it. 

    • Early voting: 

  • Oh, my.  And this was in Henryetta, Oklahoma -- hometown of Troy Aikman. 

  • We have a writer's strike. The last one was in 2007 and lasted for 100 days. 

  • Cancun Cruz will have an opponent. Allred is a moderate Democrat out of of Dallas, and a former Baylor great. 

    • I just looked at his current Congressional district. I didn't realize it was so wonky:

  • Gov. Abbott had to apologize for characterizing all the victims of the mass murders in Cleveland, Texas as "illegal immigrants." He's still a miserable and hateful human being. 

  • The great Gordon Lightfoot has passed away. It was a mainstream hit, but I always loved "If You Could Read My Mind."

  • Shot:

    • Chaser:

  • A reminder that the kid who shot and killed three teens at a Garland convenience store in 2021 is still on the loose. As is . . .
