The Campaign For DA

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • For the first time in the history of ever, the Evil Empire is #1 in the AP basketball poll. When will this madness end? But the #22 team caught my attention.
  • 90 people killed in drug violence in Juarez since first of the year? Wow. And make no mistake about it: That violence is the result of drugs being illegal.
  • I've actually searched for property for sale in Costa Rica.
  • Girl arrested during "Undie Run" (Which I wouldn't mention unless a pic was included in the link.)
  • I think I forgot to mention that American Airlines found my bags and delivered them to my doorstep by 6:00 p.m. the next day. Heck, on my return trips in the future they can lose them, find them, and deliver them the next day as often as they want.
  • Sarah Palin is going to be a Fox News contributor. And to think in her resignation speech as Alaska's governor she said her decision was motivated by a "higher calling."
  • The new book, "Game Change", has received more free publicity than Sarah Palin.
  • I'm not sure I had ever heard of the "Doomsday Clock" which is set to change this week. (I suspect we will now hear from the 2012 Guy.)
  • Mark McGuire admitted to using steroids yesterday (shocker) but then said he could have still hit 70 home runs in a season without them. And he also said he didn't take them for enhancement purposes but for "health reasons." Riiiiight.
  • I didn't realize that the horrific story of the Fort Worth woman dying yesterday while trying to save her dogs in a freezing pond occurred at Basswood and I-35 (just as you go into Fort Worth from Wise County.)
  • Every time we took the five minute walk to the beach last week, two dogs would appear out of nowhere, follow us, run and play crazily on the beach the entire time, and then follow us back. Absolutely fantastic.
  • If I had as much money as Simon Cowell, I wouldn't just quit American Idol, I'd retire,
  • Idiocracy: Not only does a metroplex kindergartner "refuse" to cut his hair for school, but the public and news media actually care about the story.
  • For lawyer friends only: Those new SCRAM devices (alcohol detecting ankle bracelets) might be reliable, but the company employees may not know how to read the results: Shocking case out of Austin.
  • Fox and Friend's Steve Doocy kidded someone this morning for saying he would later "see you on the radio" because Doocy thought they had made an error. Obviously not a fan of the old Charles Osgood Sunday morning show.
