Delayed and Tired Thoughts

  • I'm driving down 287 this morning and I see something on the shoulder in front of me. It's moving and getting close, and I finally make out that it's a tire (rim included) that is moving incredibly fast in my direction. As it moves from the shoulder into the right lane, the same lane that I'm in, I wisely decide to move to my left. I avoid it, look in my rearview mirror, and notice that it is crossing the median and heading across the opposite lane causing traffic to come to a stop. I glance to my left and see an SUV in the opposite lane at a complete standstill and missing a tire.
  • And I was half asleep.
  • Rare opinion issued today from the Fort Worth Court of Appeal upholding our own Judge Cude's ruling that a local trooper did not have a a basis to arrest a person for DWI.
  • I'm not particularly pleased with the pic above, either.
  • Watched a little of Lost last night. Quantum physics would be easier to understand.
  • My wheels are off today.

The opinion from the Appeals Court, is the reason people are killed by drunks who have been charged with multiple DWI's, and no convictions, and the reason You Barry, make the big bucks....Job Security!!!

What 12:16, so you're one of those people who think that cops never make mistakes but judges do all the time?

Let's contemplate that a bit more, shall we.

re: the tire
Same thing happened to me a couple years ago on the Jersey Turnpike heading into NYC. A tire complete with rim and hubcap came bouncing over the median and across all lanes on our side. Nobody hit it or got into an accident and we never did see what car lost it. One of the more surreal things you'll see on the road.

Even Super Troopers can be wrong, but Cude never. He is batting .967 for a court at law judge.
