Beto bites the dust

Not officially.

But he was largely doomed from the moment he announced. His campaign advisers owe him a refund for failing to prepare him properly. Or, if he ignored them, then he owes them a bonus for having made them look so bad, but I would bet that it's on them, not just him.

Christians 'under siege', says Sydney archbishop following Notre-Dame Cathedral fire

Sydney's Catholic leader believes Christians around the world are "under siege" and hopes the fire at Paris' Notre-Dame Cathedral was not a deliberate attack.
Investigators believe the blaze, which destroyed most of the roof of the 850-year-old architectural icon, was an accident possibly linked to renovation works.

Hey, way to post an article that says nothing about anything real wrt the Notre Dame burning. And while at it, ignores the burning of an important mosque the same day as the Notre Dame fire.

Bigot.

Wow. They sure did - and I would bet that AOC will be headed there, and not just to stir up trouble.

Again - not a good look here with the 9:54 edit.

I agree.

I do however feel the same way to constantly changing systems and rounding $$ up from $.20 to $1.

I will try not to do that again.

President Trump does not understand our Constitution or its limits on him.

Still not news.

Quote
In a break with the president, Congress voted for the first time earlier this month to invoke the War Powers Resolution to try to stop U.S. involvement in a foreign conflict.

The veto the second in Trump's presidency had been expected. Congress lacks the votes to override him.

"This resolution is an unnecessary, dangerous attempt to weaken my constitutional authorities, endangering the lives of American citizens and brave service members, both today and in the future," Trump wrote in explaining his veto.

So true.

Such bullshit.

Trump wouldn't recognize his "constitutional authority" if he bagged it in bed!

Go, O's!

Meanwhile, the NL East is living up to its billing. it will be one of the greatest seasons of all time, if all those teams stay healthy.

Oh, those mighty Orioles, a whopping one game ahead of the incredibly lame Red Sox.

And that amazing NL East gathering has a total of one team with more wins than losses over a team with a winning record.

They need to do better than that to be a great season, let along among the greatest. They were better at this point last year than they are now.

I think you don't really understand baseball.

I don't pretend to understand your idiosyncratic view of it.

But I am unconcerned with your estimating of my understanding of it.

Thanks for confirming the original assessment.

Give you credit for being a real fan, though, being here when the Sox are losing, and operating far below expectations. The rest of the cartel, and its loudest braggart are in hiding still. Kudos to you, Joshie.

Your orignal assessment was decades ago and had nothing to do with me. Kind of like this one - I care as much about your assessment of me as a real fan as I do about your assessment of my baseball knowledge.

I am generally interested in your assessments of tons of stuff about teams and players, when you can steer clear of your obsessions. But I see no reason for you to care about my assessments of your posts, inane and otherwise, with rare exception.

The Red Sox spent all of last year saying how great Leon was with the pitching staff.  Can't understand why they chose Swihart over him in the first place.

Leon is the better defensive catcher, and game caller, but he was no hit. Swihart made the team for his bat potential, but he was trade bait during ST, with no takers.

While totallly agree that Swihart has been given the time and opportunity to suceed, this early-season DFA seems a little desperate.

Nobody took Sandy on waivers. Maybe Blake will go through, too.
