Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • The Ticket said this morning that there was a guy in the end zone during Cleveland's field goal that read "Dime Negro." No one knows what it means.
  • I'll never understand how our government can bail out entities like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac when it doesn't have any money to do so
  • I watched some of the Video Music Awards last night, but nothing really exciting happen (except for the English accented host imploring the crowd to vote for Obama during the monologue.)
  • In the last two weeks, I've had to replace three of the six lights that make up my tail/brake/signal lights. Something ain't right.
  • Cowboys looked great. T.O.'s touchdown celebration was odd (mimicking a sprinter getting into the blocks.)
  • Every Big 12 football team won this weekend. That's the first time that's ever happened.
  • We've got a report of a Fox 4 Lari Barager sighting at the High Sheriff's wedding
  • I guess it's the cross country team in Decatur that I see jogging before dawn around town. They now have (wisely) little red lights that they can clips to their clothing.
  • Fertilizing lawns in Wise County causes Eagle Mountain Lake to smell?
  • Some how this blog got mentioned by a speaker at the 2008 Advanced Criminal Law Seminar.
  • My new secretary starts today. I've been three weeks without.
  • I bought an entry level GPS device (manufactured by Tom Tom). Holy cow, that thing is great. But it's a little creepy.
  • Smeared lipstick is always interesting.
  • Craziest news story of the morning: "A 19-year-old man dies after crashing his pickup truck through a fence and into a home's swimming pool in Coppell. The truck came to rest upside down in the pool making it difficult for rescuers to pull the teen from the cab."
  • For some reason I always have to raise the blade on my mower this time of year in order for the lawn to look green.
  • I just downloaded Ron Paul's The Revolution: A Manifesto
  • New England's Tom Brady is expected to be gone for the year due to a knee injury. Here's the cover of the Boston Globe today. And here is a very short and very funny youtube clip of the guy that hit him him (from Hard Knocks a couple of years ago.)
  • It's good that we have a change of seasons. Just the slight coolness in the air in the morning this time of year is a welcomed change.
  • I've got Sarah Palin overload. (But a funny campaign sign here.)
  • My fantasy football teams (two of them) are absolutely awful.
