- I think I feel kind of sorry for Dirk's Nowitzki's ex-fiance.
- It's so difficult for me to remember my dreams. I'm aware of them when I wake up but within 15 minutes the memories vanish.
- "We are not going to try this case in the media," is sounding pretty old.
- It was uttered yesterday by a lawyer who represents a Parker County commissioner for DWI. He had two flat tires, called the cops for help, and then they arrest him. Thank you very much.
- The last I heard, former Tech quarterback Graham Harrell couldn't even get an invitation to try out as a free agent for an NFL team. (I think he got close, but it fell through.)
- I think the Texas legislature has moved so slowly this session that very few laws will be enacted. That's fine with me. I can't think of one new law we need.
- Michael Vick finally gets released from prison today, and the NFL is "considering" re-instating him. Sheesh. The man went to prison. He lost his house. Heck, he lost everything. How much more punishment do you want to dish out?
- Have we ever had a concealed handgun license holder in Texas actually stop a crime?
- Edit: A fast typing reader just sent me this great link about a CHL holder in Azle.
- I'm worried about myself when the story last week of "Dallas Twins Fathered By Different Men" didn't even get my attention.
- I got contacted by the Star-Telegram's Melody McDonald (love her work) about the "Assisted Suicide" case that was on our district court's docket. (I mentioned it the other day as a Random Thought.) Had to tell her that I had been infomed it was a computer error and that the charge should have read "Failure to Register as Sex Offender."
- I think I ran over something important to a couple of blue jays when I mowed last Friday. They were not happy.
- The Messenger reported in today's edition (which was released last night with "Thursday" in the masthead) that property tax valuations actually went up in Bridgeport. How is that possible?
- And Chief Appraiser Mickey Hand did not say, for the first time ever, "The Barnett Shale is still king."
- Joggers are like Harley owners when they meet each other -- There's always an acknowledgment.
- WBAP's Hal Jay this morning on how to solve the Dallas city budget crunch: Invoke a "Fair Park stabbing tax." Good lord, man.
- I had heard that the DA's office screwed up on a technicality when they tried to file an appeal of the ruling suppressing the blood test results in the DWI case of Tarrant County judge Elizabeth Berry. I noticed that her lawyer just filed a Motion to Dismiss the appeal and the appellate court wanted a response from the State. Something is about to happen.
