Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!




Joe Espada Should Be The Astros' Next Manager

Posted 05-24-2022 at 06:30 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

I know, y'all. I know what you all are saying to yourselves:

"Now, Case, you've got to let the season play out and let Dusty Baker make his own decision to stay or go."

We've got a lot of baseball left to play in 2022, but the Houston Astros are actually in a bit of suspense. Dusty Baker is the manager, and this season offers this legendary baseball lifer a chance to finally get a world title as manager in the big leagues, especially after coming...

Death Threats By Left Wing Goons Against Fellow Americans Need To Stop

Posted 05-24-2022 at 05:38 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)
Updated 05-24-2022 at 07:22 PM by case44

Sorry for the shocking title, folks, but unfortunately, this is where Americans find themselves today. But if you were shocked by the grim title for this blog post, then you will be even more shocked by who is responsible for the subject matter here.

Disgusted would probably be a more fitting word.

Folks, there actually are still some good people who actually work in Washington, D.C. My hat's off to Kat Cammack, a House rep from the great state of...

Kissing Skype Goodbye: Making Transitional Adjustments At Work

Posted 05-24-2022 at 05:17 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

The powers that be in my workplace have said that Microsoft Teams will be the new communication portal for messaging and that Skype will go away on June 1. Okay, then. Change is just a way of life where I labor.

Look, there were good things about Skype in the many years I had it in my repertoire, but if workplaces want to do something different, then more power to them. All I've got to do now is adjust, play with MS Teams a little bit, and get a better feel for it....

I-69 Update: Driscoll Bypass Closer To Completion

Posted 05-23-2022 at 05:30 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

There's still quite a bit to go regarding construction on Interstate 69E from just north of Driscoll to where it almost hits Bishop. It didn't take workers very long to complete the northbound bypass loop around Driscoll (for you whippersnappers, that's just south of Corpus Christi, Texas ), and your writer has just driven on it this past week.

Great stuff is continuing to happen in South Texas. We're just waiting for the southbound bypass to be completed (and that portion...

Austin Has Lost A Huge Radio Legend

Posted 05-22-2022 at 06:18 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

The radio airwaves of Austin have been changing for years, and they'll never be the same going forward. Disk jockeys come and go. Some become very successful at the station they program at, and others didn't quite make the grade.

Radio has lost a longtime legend. And I'm sure this fellow will be remembered, not just in Austin, but also in country radio circles all across America. While I was vacationing in Corpus Christi this past Wednesday, this award-winning...
