Trump Comes All Over South Texas

The already sticky South Texas weather got a little stickier late August when President Donald Trump, the first lady and other key members of his administration came all over the area for a visit to the Hurricane Harvey-(baby)battered region. They first came onto the Corpus Christi International Airport at midday. Not used to handling such a climactic arrival, the small airfield was left with quite a mess.

The President and his entourage went from coming at the airport to coming all over a fire station in Annaville. There he was given fresh briefs, which were very much needed, as his previous briefs had become old and crusty. Trump was very pleasured by the turnout of the crowd and upon his departure, left all of those citizens in attendance with wet and salty faces.

Wake Up and Rebuild (The Oso Pier)

Yes, when I look at the Oso Pier’s post-Hurricane Harvey state, I can’t help but be reminded of my lost dreams, a failed marriage, and my overall miserable life, but this isn’t another article about the desolation in which I flounder daily. This is a piece about a different kind of flounder, or more likely black trout (…or is it African-American trout?).

A couple of years ago, Outdoor Columnist for the Caller Times, David Sikes (@davidoutdoors) wrote a wonderful article that thoroughly examines the most recent reconstruction of the Oso Pier by the current owners. Even though he started his column off with an overly grand reference to Hemingway that got my hopes up, Oso Pier, Then and Now is a great story about the life of Corpus Christi’s oldest pier, built in 1948.
