- Anyone else remember when Southlake had that small Dairy Queen on the right off of 114?
- Swine Flu Pandemic: Panic, Overrated.
- There was an obituary this week in the Messenger of an elderly man but the photo that accompanied it was that of him as a young man. I used to have a problem with that. Now, I support it.
- The Rev. Jeremiah Wright was in Dallas last weekend. He managed to fire off, "Never had a black woman sleeping legally in the White House every night, and she doesn’t have to sneak in through the servant’s entrance." That guy has some hot sports opinions.
- I can't help but watch the NFL Draft every year, but it makes me uncomfortable. A bunch of rich, white owners deciding what healthy black men will work for them.
- Dumbest Cowboy pick: With a young, great kicker already on the roster with Nick Folk, Dallas drafts a kicker in the fifth round. (Although apparently he is so freakishly fast and strong that he might be able to play special teams)
- On the first day of the draft, ESPN had a camera on the Cowboys' "War Room". Everyone wore a dark suit except Coach Wade Phillips who wore a yellow shirt over his plump frame. He stuck out like a banana. The guy has no idea.
- "The Mexican" is on every movie channel all the time.
- Bea Arthur died this weekend. On The Ticket this morning they mentioned there was an episode of Maude where she had an abortion. Man, I had no idea. (Then they brought up that Edith in All In The Family was sexually assaulted in one episode.) I think they didn't understand "comedy" in the 1970s.
- I have never been remotely entertained by The Doors.
- I randomly clicked on an issue of The Spin from 2005 and saw this: "An inmate who was sentenced last week to at least 30 real years in prison commits suicide in the Wise County Jail." I have no memory of that. That kind of scares me.
- Underrated actor: Jason Statham.
- I watched Iron Man yesterday. I think my brain is programmed as such that I don't like Super Hero movies even if everyone else proclaims them as great.
- I've said it for years: A pitcher intentionally throwing at a batter (in the American League where the pitcher does not have to bat) is the most cowardly sports act in history.
- I didn't watch a second of NASCAR but the end at Tallagdegha was crazy. Carl Edwards car goes airborne into the chain link fence. Eight people were hurt but I'm still amazed that car didn't go into the stands.
