- Well, this is timely, considering what happened in Uvalde and what I wrote about the NRA yesterday. The SBC is fortunate they are no longer front page news. – The National Rifle Association’s annual meeting is set to be held in Houston starting on Friday. Former President Donald J. Trump, Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas and Senator Ted Cruz are among those scheduled to address the gathering.
- This was probably the saddest tweet I saw yesterday:

- I don’t get to drop my kids off at school often, but every time I do, I think it might be the last time I’ll ever see them alive because of school shootings. The kids only have a half day of school today. Their mother has asked me to watch them after school and during her teacher work days this week. Last year, to keep the kids away from me, the ex coordinated with her mother and sister to alternate days and drive 110 miles from East Texas to watch the kids when I was available, less than a mile away, and the kids preferred me over them.
- Texas’ Fort Hood likely to be renamed for first Hispanic four-star general instead of Confederate general
- Fort Hood likely will be renamed Fort Cavazos after a blue-ribbon commission recommended that the Confederate-named Army base receive a new name along with eight other military bases nationwide. The Naming Commission, which was created by Congress and is responsible for recommending new names or removal of names and symbols that commemorate Confederate figures within the Department of Defense, called for Fort Hood to be named after Gen. Richard Cavazos, a native Texan and the Army’s first Hispanic four-star general.
- FWIW – Cavazos was a veteran of both the Korean and Vietnam Wars, and was born in Texas. John Bell Hood was born in Owingsville, Kentucky and died in New Orleans.
- Marvel Stays Family-Friendly, Erases Violent Scene From MCU Series – The article refers to the fight at the end of the first episode. The footage of the fight is in the article, and it would have been a great addition. But, I remember when I first watched it and unaware there was a fight scene filmed. At the time, I thought they made a good move going the “less is more” route. It left me intrigued. Especially with it being the first episode, and left some mystery and a cliffhanger for the next episode.
- Glad to hear that the TNT crew spent time with the paralyzed Shawn Bradley. But it was embarrassing that our playoff basketball game had a rain delay. I did feel for the AAC crew having to fix such a problem so on the spot.

- There’s a new battery energy storage facility in North Texas that is being touted as part of the solution to help minimize disruptions in electricity when the demand gets high.
- Located at the DeCordova Energy Storage Facility in Granbury, the 3,000 individual battery modules stored in 86 containers can hold 260-megawatts, which can power about 130,000 Texas residences during normal grid conditions. The Lithium-ion system stores excess electricity from the grid and can also release the energy when demand is high.
