Sailing, bingo, and the Rio Grande

December 28, 2020

Boxing day was pretty with light air for an easy afternoon sail, with quite a few other boats going out, despite no regatta. The photo is from my walk home, just before sunset.

The paper yesterday had an article about the popularity of bingo here, and the funding it provides for little league and other community groups. Texas Monthly writes about the landowners along the Rio Grande who haven’t yet budged for Trump’s wall.

All the preceding is typical of south Texas. Now, the hundreds of millions of dollars that the federal government is forfeiting to contractors because it didn’t first acquire the needed land? That seems more the kind of con that comes from a shady New York casino operator.
