- At least 75 are dead in Baghdad this morning. "Mission Accomplished" was when?
- Pudge Rodriguez has lost a lot of weight. But I think we all know why.
- I suppose that the civil unrest felt in this country is similar to what was felt in the Sixties except now the public is too fat and lazy to get out an protest.
- For a hurricane that will never touch land, Bill sure is getting a lot of attention.
- The Wise County Commissioners are setting the current budget. During my first year as DA, I voluntarily cut $10,000 (or was it $5,000?) due to a line item that read "Outside Appellate Attorney" that I didn't need. I bet I am the only elected official in this county in the last 50 years to cut their budget on their own. And I was elected as a Democrat.
- I just bragged a little bit. I apologize.
- What hotel do you think Paul McCartney is staying in tonight?
- Someone wrote me and said this Explorer patch for Wise County has some unusual markings on it. I don't know enough about history to understand. Edit: Patch in context on county web site.
- I've got a live Fantasy Football draft in Paradise this weekend. The draft is probably more fun than the season is.
- I bet un-re-re-retired and now Minnesota Viking Brett Favre doesn't even start for the last half of season. His skills have diminished, he's a year older, he's coming off shoulder surgery, and he has a torn rotator cuff. Maybe we'll get to see a mid-season tearful re-re-re-retirement.
- Caller to KLIF this morning on the issue of whether we should be spending or saving, "If it don't go 'bang' and I can't reload it, I ain't buying it right now." Good grief.
- There was tremendous outrage when Texas appellate judge Sharon Keller allegedly shut down the Court of Criminal Appeals preventing a last minute appeal of a death row inmate. Over the last two days, her ethics hearing has been going on and you hardly have heard a peep about it.
