Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • Channel 8's Cynthia Izaguirre thinks we care about her last name far more than we actually do. Two words: High. Maintenance.
  • A cop shot at a fleeing Hulen mall shoplifter last night? Shot at? What is this? A 1970s TV cop show?
  • And at 6:30 a.m., the news broke that a person had been shot in the head at the high tone Northpark Center. A car fired from outside and hit a cleaning crew member (according to Fox 4.)
  • Keep away from all malls today.
  • One of my sources deep inside the colon of Fox 4 News tells me I'm the #10 referrer to their web site.
  • President Obama looked very presidential in his news conference last night. I don't think there will ever be a web site dedicated to "Obamaisms".
  • Alex Rodriguez will be booed mercilessly all year. If he didn't have a thick skin before, he better grow one.
  • The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, which comes out this month, just doesn't have the same punch that it used to.
  • Finally saw Tony Romo's interview with Babe Laufenberg on Sunday night. That guy is clueless.
  • If I can remember, I want to go to the gun show in Fort Worth on Saturday. There has to be a ton of Blog material walking around in that place.
  • Everywhere I turn I hear people say, "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results" -- like that phrase has just been invented.
  • You guys continue to amaze me at your Obama hatred. Case in point: The post below which pointed out the number of government jobs in the metroplex which was immediately followed by the "blame it on Obama" comments. Like he had anything to do with the number of police officers already in Arlington or the number of teachers in Lewisville.
  • My all time hated phrase is, "If you don't like the weather in Texas, just wait a minute."
  • Second all time hated phrase, "I hate it when that happens."
  • I think the phrase "That's a little toooooooo much information" originated in Pulp Fiction.
  • The radio is full of Vermont Teddy Bear ads for Valentines. Their catch phrase is that delivery to your spouse's offices will cause "her co-workers to think you are the most romantic guy on the planet." You might not be, but at least others will think that.
  • The Huckabee Report on WBAP (five minutes long at 7:30 a.m. ) is a romper room for conservatives.
  • Some people speak of the need for a new American revolution, and I seriously believe I might see one in my lifetime. But it will only happen when times get so bad that food is in short supply.
  • For the first time ever yesterday, I finished the Dallas Morning News and decided it wasn't worth the 75 cents I had just spent. There was hardly anything in it.
  • Reader submitted pic above. Blame him. Not me.
