Random Thoughts


- I had to go to Denton this morning. I don't think I've done that in a very long while.
- About a 1/4 mile from the old courthouse I saw about 40 guys that appeared to be Hispanic standing around waiting anxiously. There was no question that it was a spot for employers to drive by to get day labor. But it was kind of sad seeing so many people that wanted to work but didn't have a job
- At the driver's license hearing, I saw a lawyer who absolutely no idea what he was doing. (For you criminal lawyers out there, he asked openly what "HGN" stood for.) He even had his client there to testify which is an absolute no-no at the hearing. Felt sorry for the kid/client.
- On the way back an 18 wheeler drifted into my lane by about two feet before he looked up and jerked it back. I have robbed death yet again.
- Speaking of . . . Dan Fogelberg has died. I liked Dan Fogelberg
- The Today Show's Ann Curry was going to bungee jump this morning. I promise I did not have negative thoughts.
- Brian Westbrook downing the ball on the one yard line yesterday was the smartest and most anti-ego move in the history of ever in the NFL

AAHHH!!!!
I had to go look up what HGN was. For those of you who dont know either...its the part of the test that officers have look at a light or pen and follow it as they move it side to side. Your eye jerks at some point and they are able to tell how drunk you are by when it starts.

Brian Westbrook's move sucks if you have him on your FFootball team and it is a close game.
Thanks for nothing Brian!

I agree that play by Westbrook has to be one of the most unselfish plays you can make as an athlete. Afterall, running backs love the carry that ball into the end zone.

I thought liberal weenies were opposed to racial profiling. I feel sorry too for people that risk their lives and break our laws to come here for work only to have to stand out in the cold waiting to be picked up. I guess since the unemployment rate is at an all time low, it's time to shut the border down once and for all.

"The Leader of the Band is tired and his eyes are growing old. But his blood runs through my instrument and his song is in my soul. My life has been a poor attempt, to imitate the man. I'm just the living legacy to the Leader of the Band"

What powerful lyrics.

The illegal immigrants that want work hang out across of the Allsup's (the Allsup's by the park)!

Downing the ball instead of scoring was the same thing as taking points off the board. A touchdown off the board. I don't know.

I thought I was the only one that noticed Dan Fogelberg had died. I really liked him too.
