At the Wisconsin football game Saturday night, all students that had previously been ejected from a game or were required to "pass through" the police station at the game, will have to blow into a portable breathalyzer before entry
If you are under age, you have to register .00, and if you are 21 or older, you have to come in at .08 or lower. If you don't, you're not getting in the stadium.
Big Brother is
So a New York congressman catches a little heat for making this comment? Sheesh. Wise Countians would proclaim, "We don't know what a mosque is but we're glad we don't have any!! We don't, right? Or is that where the Jehovah Witnesses hang out?"
We all know that if it doesn't have a steeple, it ain't a house of worship.
- The Aggies didn't look so hot last night against Miami
- I watched part of Rockwall and Southlake Carroll which was, amazingly, on Channel 21
- Megan Henderson was especially hot on Fox 4 News this morning
- I need to go to the jail to see some court appointed client who might be crazy
- This morning would be great if it didn't feel like summer
- Some anonymous guy tried to post about a public official driving like a bat out of hell last night but I couldn't confirm it. So he cussed me this morning in another attempted comment because I didn't post it.
Jan. 2001 Police are summoned to Simpson's home after a neighbor called to report an argument. Prody told police Simpson was angry that she came home late. No charges are filed. Sept. 2000 Prody accused Simpson of using a key to break into her home, erase a message on her answering machine and take a letter. She called police but did not press charges. May 2000 Police are called to a Miami hotel after Simpson and Prody got into a loud dispute and Prody allegedly slapped and kicked him. Simpson refused to press charges. Oct. 1999 Police respond to a 911 call Simpson placed from Prody's house. According to a police report, Simpson said Prody had been on a cocaine binge. Simpson later calls that a misunderstanding. (Source) Sept. 2007 Wise County Sheriff David Walker responded to call at Frilly's parking lot after Simpson and Prody were arguing. Walker and Brody ended up drinking pitchers of beer and singing Foreigner's "I Want To Know What Love Is" on the karaoke stage. No charges filed.
Ok, the first four were true.
This story is all over the news, and I'll swear I've never heard anything about this before.
But this rally, in a town of 3,500, looks like it has the potential for trouble. Big trouble. The first speaker this morning was from the Nation of Islam.
Edit: Wikipedia article on the whole imbroglio here.
That's right, my fellow truck driving, bull riding, welding, roofing, and roughnecking Wise Countians, this man in some fashionable black pumps could kick your arse.
Edit: de la Hoya's people say it's fake. You would expect that. But they also might be right.
I always check out the Texas prosecutors' message board for tips. I just saw this one (posted above). Why on earth would that prosecutor want to go after the 16 year old? In Texas, consensual sex between a 16 and 15 year old is legal. Sex between a 16 year old and a 13 year old is not. And, amazingly, it is not a defense that the 16 year old was mistaken about the "victim's" age. That, my friends, is a law that needs to change.
Adam Poole, I don't who you are, but you might want to rethink this one.
Edit: I learned that Adam may be a little new to this prosecutor thing. (Source: Comment 17 on this unrelated blog.)
O.J. will never be convicted because of this Las Vegas incident.
- One of the victims has already had a heart attack
- Every single witness is shady
- One of the victims was on The Today Show today saying the TMZ released audiotape had been edited (and that everyone needs to "calm down.")
- The fact that there is an audio tape at all screams "set up."
- The prosecutors added a charge of "kidnapping" yesterday which indicates they already don't know what they are doing.
But if you want to see the youtube video of this incident (which, I warn you, is of a quality less than the Zapruder film), you can see it here.
There aren't any exceptional circumstances. No rain delay. No screw ups as to the starting time.
Just America's past time on its death bed.
And I've never really been a fan of Jack Lemmon, but he was simply incredible. If you ever want to feel the pain of the desperate American worker (and who of us haven't felt that?), watch him in action.
Cast members: Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Ed Harris, Alan Arkin, Alec Baldwin, and Kevin Spacey.
Baylor almost got beat by Texas State this weeked. (And, by the way, read: Southwest Texas State located in San Marcos - the school tricked the legislature to get rid of the regional reference because having a regional reference in your school's name is the kiss of death.)
Anyway, some little Texas State coeds showed up in Waco for the game.
As I shook my head at this headline from the Dallas Morning News today (how in the heck did that happen so often in Dallas?), I also had to tap the brakes when I read these sentences:
"Mr. Phillips also pleaded guilty to eight charges for sex crimes that police said at the time were committed by the same man who committed the rape . . . . [His new lawyer] said Mr. Phillips simply gave up and pleaded guilty to those charges."
That will make getting out of prison a very, very difficult proposition.
I'm not sure if many metroplex readers will understand it. But if I recall correctly, around 1990, over a series of months, a number of people were arrested at the rest stop along 287 near Alvord for alleged homosexual activity. Yep, it was illegal back then. There were allegations that those arrested were directed by Sheriff's personnel to a particular bail bond company to make the cases "go away".
