The Laredo Lizard is back. We apologize for our absence, but nothing particularly lively has been going on since our last post.
Other than the Salinas divorce, that is.
But that’s not the focus of matters right now, though nobody in our shop would be surprised if this divorce went from civil court right to the DA’s office once the facts come out.
OK, so we do have an opinion on that one.
Then there are those rumors coming out of the south about the on again, off again genital measuring contest between the incumbent County Commissioner and his former boss. Does anybody really care who comes out ahead on that one?
While we wait for the padrones in Austin and San Antonio to cut a deal, you’ll have to agree that the long and irresponsible delay in redistricting has made for an atypically sleepy, low-key primary season in Webb County. Just a little moaning and whining about all the walls around town … no really spirited contests (yet) … nada!
Unless you want to talk about a certain sitting district court judge trying to play political kingpin and hand-pick his colleagues on the bench and in other offices. It may come as a surprise for his honor, but judges are elected to dispense justice, not political endorsements.
Maybe that’s something we can start talking about.
