Mix city council candidates and bloggers and what do you get?

One of the causes of global warming.

Blogging live from Kaveh Kanes in downtown H-Town, where brunch and free Wi-Fi are being served. A semi-full report later, but I'll put it over here.

Update: Discussion and comments from nine candidates and seven bloggers is here.

Texans for Hackett is rolling

42 people have clicked on the links furnished by Greg (who hatched the idea) and participating Texas bloggers and have contributed almost $1,200, with an average donation of $28.45 . Richard Morrison fired up his listserv and collected a fourth of that total.

That's as of this morning.

An absolutely amazing example of the power of the netroots. Let's take it all the way to the finish line next Tuesday.

NOW I'm a believer

When they can beat Pedro Martinez on the strength of the mighty bats of Brad Ausmus and Adam Everett, then I think the Astros might have sump'm goin' on.

20-6 in the month of July (and three of those L's came at the hands of the division-leading St. Louis Cardinals fresh off the All-Star break).

Saturday night we'll go club-leveling to see Andy Pettitte square off against Tom Glavine. One of my guests is a big Mets fan. She has reminded me twice since I acquired tickets to this game about 1986.

I might not even boo Beltran too badly if the score is not close in the late innings.
