- The concept of the Texas Ranger ball girls is a good one.
- TV Land is developing a new reality show on the female cougar? Greatest idea ever?
- I don't think I ever watch TV Land.
- There's some pirate news in the news. The first time I realized there were actual pirates in the modern day world was in the Harrison Ford movie, Six Days Seven Nights (which is better know for a horrible acting job by David Schwimmer.)
- I don't think the Wise County folks use the 156 bridge over 114 near the Speedway, but it'll be shut down for a couple of weeks due to structure damage.
- Lots of sports talk over the Mavericks jockeying for the seven vs. eighth seed in the NBA playoffs. News Flash: That doesn't matter.
- I'm not sure where Lady GaGa came from.
- I heard attorney Bill Ray out of Fort Worth was appointed on the Stephen York case.
- Everyone is calling it a "capital murder" case but the actual charge is only decided upon by the DA with the grand jury's approval. And if it is a capital murder indictment, the DA decides whether to seek the death penalty. He can waive that option which means a guilty verdict means an automatic life sentence.
- Even I think it is shocking that a DA can decide when to pursue the death penalty and when not to --- but I really don't have any better system in mind.
- My favorite crazy conservative, our own blogging assistant DA Kevin Henry, has been ranting against any call for the legalization of drugs. But take a look at this post and find the one paragraph that should drive everyone crazy.
- Two bizarre deaths that we kind of ignored over the last week: The guy that drowns in a creek in Chico and the guy that got run over by a train in Decatur. (The last one sounds like a country music lyric.)
- Any comment signed by "Double Fake" whatever tends to be pretty funny.
- I know no one out there has heard it, but there is nothing worse than the Huckabee Report on WBAP at 7:32 a.m. (For a guy that is probably pretty smart, his attempts at humor are the corniest I've ever heard.)
- There was a story yesterday of a carjacking in Dallas where a lady was forced out of her car and the attacker left the scene in her car with the victim's two children in it. (They were safely released nearby.) I'm kind of surprised the guy got the car: I can't imagine a more formidable foe that a mother whose kids are about to be taken from her.
- I've kept my weight off from The Master Cleanse.
