Monday musings...

This time it's Detroit councilwoman Monica Conyers.
"Culture of corruption", anyone? The list of Democrats in trouble is getting kinda long...
For example, two Democrats in Oregon are under fire.
And then there's Charlie Rangel, and William Jefferson, and all those would-be Obama cabinet appointees who, well, hadn't paid all their taxes...

BASEBALL DIARY: big win for the Tigers yesterday, thanks to good pitching by Edwin Jackson and obviously a clutch home run with 2 out in the 9th by Brandon Inge to win the game. Inge is a warrior. But the Tigers need to get the bats going again--they scored only 9 runs all weekend vs. Houston.
Meanwhile the Cubs lost again to the White Sox, 6-0, yesterday; and lost 2 of 3 over the weekend. Once again Carlos Zambrano seemed to lose his cool after allowing a steal of home; but then, that seems to be a theme with the Cubs this year.
And the Texas Rangers still aren't hitting--they got only 1 hit last night as they lost to the lowly Padres, 2-0. I suspect they miss Josh Hamilton more than people thought...

Canadian version...:
"Hamilton's neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) was full when Ava Isabella Stinson was born 14 weeks premature at St. Joseph's Hospital Thursday at 12:24 p.m.
A provincewide search for an open NICU bed came up empty, leaving no choice but to send the two-pound, four-ounce preemie to Buffalo that evening."

2012 WATCH:
It seems clear that Mitt Romney's political team remains in place, and is poised to be part of another Romney run for the presidency in 2012. Romney himself won't admit this, though, for a while yet...
But I'd be surprised if he didn't run.
