- The Wise County lawsuit over the hurt finger at Sid Richardson is over: Girl didn't get any money. Sounds like the girl didn't deserve any money.
- Personal injury cases never go to trial any more. I bet Wise County, once the hot bed of Plaintiff's litigation, hasn't had more than two of those type of cases go to trial in the last six years.
- Odds are 18 to 1 that TCU wins the football National Championship next year. All odds here.
- I listened to only a few minutes of the governor debate last night. Man, Rick Perry stumbled over his words and sounded very inarticulate. That isn't like him at all.
- Libertarian Debra Medina is probably the best choice between the three.
- The NFL Network replayed the 1975 Dallas/Minnesota "Hail Mary" game yesterday. Three plays before the famous Staubach to Pearson bomb, Dallas completed a 4 and 17. I'm old enough to remember that, but I didn't.
- And after the Hail Mary, a referee was hit in the head with a thrown liquor bottle from the stands. The NFL replay yesterday conveniently cut that part out.
- Re: Dallas cop who sent nude photos of himself to a 17 year old girl (among other infractions). Uh, the defense of, "I don't deny all of the allegations but I question the integrity of the investigation" is not a good defense.
- Watched a little of Reno 911 last night. It sure is pushing the envelope these days (but still very funny.)
- Interesting quote from the owner of the closing J&J Blues Bar in Fort Worth: "J&J fell victim to an aging fan base and an increasingly sober society, said Schusler, 72. He noted that average liquor sales per guest over the past five years dropped to $9 from $19.47."
- Having monitored the situation for years, I think people are more responsible drinkers these days.
- I'm coming around on Forgetting Sarah Marshal. Funny but not Real Funny. (But it's definitely a movie that gets funnier with age.)
- More crazy cops: An off duty cop in Plano smashed into an on duty Plano cop this morning. There are so many government employees that they are smashing into each other these days.
