- They tell me this is the first day of school. They also tell me there are young mothers of First Graders everywhere crying this morning.
- Saw some Decatur High Schoolers driving up to DHS this morning. Trust me kids, it's not the best time of your lives.
- I think mandatory school uniforms would be a good idea.
- Two motorcycle deaths yesterday and one on Saturday.
- I didn't know Texas has had "death panels" since 1999 and that Gov. Bush signed it into law. (Hat tip to Bud Kennedy.)
- MzChief and Anobiter argue over whether life should be lived "for another".
- For the craziest of reasons, I discovered "Screaming Bridge" between Paradise and Decatur on Friday night.
- My sources tell me that heard on the police scanner in Wise County last night, at around 9:30, law enforcement was dispatched to a "possum in a bedroom."
- The craziest story of the weekend was about the "Reality TV Star" from VH1's "Megan Wants a Millionarie" who killed model Jasmine Fiore, stuffed her body in a suitcase in a dumpster after removing her fingers and teeth, and then was found dead on Sunday of suicide in a Canadian hotel room.
- The Spin will be a little delayed, but this could be a substitute in the meantime.
- Sports Point: Lots of talk about the Cowboys video screen being hit by a punt on Friday night. Since the rule is that the play is simply a "do over", I would think most coaches would tell their punter "don't hit the scoreboard" since a false start by the coverage team would wear them out in a hurry.
- I'm excited about my Baylor Bears which may have the best team in years. But, sheesh, they play in the Big 12 South where THREE of the six teams are in the AP Top 10 (Texas, OU, Oklahoma State.) The best team in the Big 12 North? Kansas at 25.
- Janeane Garofalo standup, "The shortest 10 minutes in the world: After hitting the snooze button. The longest: On the Stairmaster."
- Did you see that those crazy Mexicans in Mexico legalized drug possession for personal use?
- Sports Point #2: What in the world has happened to Vince Young? And did you know that before Chris Simms and Young, the Evil Empire never had a quarterback go on to start an NFL game. Edit: Ugh. The link refers only to the "modern era" which, for some reason, begins in 1966.
