I’m praying for you, Michael. Palm Sunday celebrates radical peace. Christ rode a donkey, not a horse—a rejection of power, greed, & violence. So instead of “owning the libs” today, help us make policies to heal the sick, liberate the poor, & protect God’s creation.

THIS is why state briefings are so frustrating & suspect. Yesterday Abbott said 827 hospitalized. How can that be when Houston alone reported 996 hospitalized on Monday? Data = power to trace, isolate & contain. Need more testing & congruent reporting.

Extra daddy-daughter time at home these days means that we skipped the training wheels altogether. Shelby and I are proud of Hollis Rose for being a quick learner, but a little worried that she now has her own independent means of transportation.

I'm mad as hell that we can't get supplies we need to protect our healthcare providers, tests we need to track this pandemic & ventilators we need to keep our loved ones alive. How is it even possible that the greatest state and country in the world can't figure this out?

One of the most effective gerrymanders ever was Texas in the 1990s. Republicans were competitive at the Congressional level but the Democrats kept a majority of its delegation the whole decade. In 1994, Republicans won the popular vote by 14% but only 11 of its 30 seats.

An updated model projects that coronavirus hospitalizations in Texas will peak at 3,682 instead of the 17,221 originally predicted. Based on numbers released by Gov. Abbott, the state is well equipped for an outbreak of the estimated size.

Texas has almost 20,000 hospital beds available to treat patients for . 2,107 intensive-care beds are available & we have 8,741 ventilators. Texas should avoid the limited health care resources seen in some other states.

Due to potential exposure to Coronavirus in the workplace my wife was self quarantined at home as of last weekend. We both were tested at Butler Stadium. It took 7 days to get results back. We are both negative. Very stressful time. Please pray for all our patients.

To Texans struggling to get state unemployment benefits: This isn’t a case of a good system overwhelmed by unprecedented demand. This is a *bad* system overwhelmed by unprecedented demand. Even in good times, only 1/3 of unemployed Texans get unemployment benefits.

Grateful to the local election officials who took all of my calls to uncover how Texas botched its citizenship review of the voter rolls: And to the nearly-disenfranchised voters who lent their voices to our reporting:
