You may recall that I am part owner of Griff's Bar. It's an institution here in town and well-known to the national press as one of America's original sports bars. The founder, Mike Griffin, sold the bar in 1994 to pursue other endeavors. One of those was to serve Houston as a councilman. I was on Mike's campaign committee several times back when I was drinking.
Tuesday, he lost for the sixth consecutive race. Just can't seem to get enough $$$$ and that is what it takes to win an election.
