Random Best Of Posts: Day #6

  • One of my all time favorites: The N Word
  • This wreck in 2007 deserves a "where are they now" segment.
  • Still shocking to me: The number of straight ticket voters in Wise County.
  • I posted far more shocking pics when I didn't think anyone was reading.
  • How quickly we forget. Newt Gingrich, who is making a bit of a Republican comeback, was having an affair while he was dogging Clinton for having an affair.
  • A shocking google search about our Sheriff.
  • Still one crazy site: Drag and drop the falling bikini girl.
  • An Iraqi casualty from Boyd that I hope has not been forgotten.
  • I used to be so much bolder with my pics.
  • I still think the hanging of Saddam Hussein after a trial without a jury that did not allow him to even know the identity of his accusers, was barbaric.
  • I hope all the people listed in this story still visit that young man's grave.
  • This was pretty interesting: The Dallas Morning News got a hold of the "talking points" given out by the Dallas County Democratic party after the parties surprising landslide win in 2006.
  • This won't interest many of you, but I went nuts watching the "where should Anna Nicole's body be buried" proceeding.

  • Jane McGarry gold.
  • Hottest OU girl ever.
  • I had forgotten that Fox tried to do it's own comedy show in 2007. (I researched it and found out it was cancelled after 13 episodes.)

  • "White Chicks And Gang Signs"
  • "Barron Green" explained.
  • When I reprinted this Christmas flyer from Grace Baptist Church in 2006, which included the regretable phrase "invest in eternity", the comments exploded. (Back then they were unmoderated and I can't even bring myself to link back to them now.)

  • I can't believe the video is still up of Tony Romo (before he went big time) making an appearance in a shocking youtube for a Denton bar.

We Interrupt This Broadcast

I'll be out of pocket all this week, but there's no need to get out your dress blues. If everything works correctly, each morning around 8:15 a.m. you'll automatically receive a "Best Of" post from random entries from 2006 and 2007. Will they be that good? Naaaaa. But they got my attention as I cruised down memory lane as I put it together. (Which was an extreme beating.) I rarely say thanks for reading but, hey, thanks for reading. But while you guys work all week, rest assured I'm relaxing on a beach (or in a Mexican prison because of a little problem getting through customs.) Either way, it'll be an all-inclusive stay.
