It's not just you

There is certainly far too much information that is considered classified, whether marked as such or not, out of an abundance of caution. I believe the point of contention centers around whether the Secretary of State should know better and know the difference. Particularly if she is communicating off the State Department server.

It's not a big fat nothing, as the OP contends. The FBI doesn't really have time for those.

Tell it to the FBI.

Reported by David Shuster. Is the media still to blame?

Same here.

If Trump is the nominee, then any Democrat has a realistic shot at carrying Texas. But absent The Donald, Clinton -- even with a Texan named Castro as her running mate -- still doesn't. The real upside is that a Clinton-Castro ticket has long, wide coattails against anybody, and for urban counties like Harris (Houston) that is huge for downballot races, like judicials.

All this would also be true if Bernie Sanders or Martin O'Malley were the nominee. So I may be reduced to helping Trump win the GOP nom in some form or fashion. That's how bad it is in Deep-In-The-Hearta, folks.

Kent Friedman, board chair of the Harris County-Houston Sports Authority, warned that if HERO is scuttled, it could cost the city the 2016 NCCA Men's Final Four and 2017 Super Bowl. The NFL title game brings an economic impact "north of $800 million" to the city, he said.

"It would be pretty consistent for those institutions to react the same way if Houston were perceived" similarly to Arizona and Indiana during debates over anti-gay "religious freedom" legislation, Friedman said.

This is the most effective message we can send between now and November -- when the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO) is on the ballot, 'for' or 'against' -- to drive a wedge between the pro-business Republicans in Houston and the social conserva-- err, extremists.

This is exactly what people say about guns.

I watched on a Jumbotron at the TX Dem Party state convention

in the Austin Convention Center as she conceded. It was a Saturday afternoon. I saw grown men in blue jean overalls and Cat Diesel Power caps with tears running down their face.

The next day, at the general assembly of delegates, I saw two people from a Deep East Texas Senate district wearing black T-shirts with NOBAMA on the back. That was a first.

Those folks are going to be real mad all over again if Hillary chokes a second time.

It is troubling

that after 6.5 years of America's first black president's terms, this is still such a massive societal problem that the people most affected by it need to protest so vigorously about it. And not to the man in charge but to the two men who (allegedly) won't be in any position -- such as the White House -- to do anything about it.

They might have well been protesting in Phoenix last weekend, when Donald Trump was there speaking to his minions.
