Welcome to the long weekend kids.
Before we get on with today's business, let's remember the reason for the holiday.
Thank you to those who gave all to maintain our freedoms, including the First Amendment, a right we exercise poorly here weekly.
Let's do that now, shall we?
Memorial Day Weekend means many things: travel, cookouts, fireworks, the Indianapolis 500 and, if you live in Houston, COMICPALOOZA.
The four day convention has become a tradition in town and at my house.
Over the years, the Con has gotten much bigger and is drawing some seriously A list guests.
One of those guests is today's cheesecake. Please say hello to Chloe Bennet.
Ms. Bennet is one of the featured guest at Comicpalooza this weekend.
She is also everyone's favorite Inhuman, Skye/Daisy, on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Before she started doing most of the heavy lifting for the MCU, she starred on Nashville and had a career as a singer in Asia.
In other words, she's been very busy.
