- I won't bore you with the details but the last Texas legislature made a major change in post-DWI driver's license hearings. Why do I mention this? Because the change was one page in a 200 page bill that had nothing to do with DWI or driver's licenses. I bet you could ask every legislator if they were aware they voted on the change and they would answer "no." (Except the author that stuck it in there.) And I bet 95% of them couldn't explain the hearings in the first place.
- Ok, I just bored you.
- NFL note: Brett Favre ended up split out as a wide receiver last night in a preseason game and then
throughthrew an illegal crackback block? There's about 100 dumb things about the whole play. Edit: Video (while it lasts)
- NCAA: This will be weird --- the Cotton Bowl Classic (which is moving into Jerry's Death Star) will have a new day and time after next season: Jan. 7, 2011 at 7 p.m.
- I made a trip to the Decatur Walmart the other day (after avoiding it for almost a year.) I could people watch in that place all day long. Scary.

- High school football is much more exciting when you are in high school.
- When I walk by the spice section in the grocery store, I wonder what people do with all of them.
- If you were interested in the recent news story about the girl that was kidnapped in California and held for almost two decades, and (stay with me here) you have a working knowledge of Google Street View, this is kinda creepy.
- MzChief sure has been grumpy lately.
- I wonder if happy babies end up being happy people?
- It amazes me how people fail to realize that they see the world through a prism that was formed through their incredibly limited experiences.
- Every office in the Wise County courthouse has a personality, and they are all very different. One big dysfunctional family that's pretty, uh, functional.
- I'm not a hunter but the first time I ever went dove hunting (1991?), I hit a bird with my first shot ever.
- It seems like you can turn the TV on in the middle of the night (or on Saturday early afternoon) and all it is is a bunch of paid programming by snake oil salesman. Man, there's a lot of scams out there.
- The federal government had to purchase the land for a United 93 September 11th Memorial for $9.5 million?
- For every teen that gave birth in Dallas in 2006, 28% of them resulted in the teen's second child. "Of the city's 3,739 teen births in 2006, the report says, 64 percent were to Hispanics, 30 percent to blacks and 6 percent to whites. Although most were to 18- or 19-year-olds, there were 72 to girls 14 or younger"
