- Overnight: A TCU student is found dead on her bed with duct tape over her mouth and police think it is not a homicide. Oh, my.
- Tech thoughts: Is Google Wave a bust? And everyone sure thinks Apple is about to unveil a tablet computer.
- #1 UT lost at Kansas State last night. That's going to happen.
- The Update says that the Boyd ISD's superintendent believes he has been fired after 2012 based upon the school board's decision last night not to extend his contract. But since the vote was 4-3, couldn't an intervening change in the make up of the board change that decision in future votes?
- Guilty pleasure: The Fail Blog.
- I didn't go outside once yesterday after I entered my office early in the morning (the courthouse was closed.) People tell me it was beautiful outside.
- Business news I don't understand: Citigroup loses $7.6 billion (with a "B") last quarter but that "meets analysts estimates" so the stock "remains unchanged." Callback: Remember when I bought $1,000 of Citigroup shares a year ago on the hunch that it wouldn't go bankrupt? Prediction = Success. Make Money = Fail.
- ABC has a new series called "The Deep End" about a bunch of fun loving first year associates in a law firm. The New York Times says in today's legal landscape, that's a fantasy. True that.
- Somebody busted me yesterday by pulling out an old Random Thought that Brett Favre would be a failure this year. Boy, was I wrong.
- After actually to the "lyrics" of "Pants On The Ground", anyone else uncomfortable with Favre singing that in the locker room in front of a bunch of black guys?
- I still laugh at Favre's appearance in Something About Mary.
- That was some Favre overload.
- I ordered a book called "Living In Costa Rica."
- Roy Williams is due $10 million next year? No. Way.
- I always thought former conservative Senator Bill Frist was a fraud (at least every since he, as a doctor, misdiagnosed Terri Schiavo from the senate floor.) But I noticed that he's in Haiti putting to use his skills as a surgeon. I appreciate that.
- The federal government is about to hand out a "river of cash" to the states for the creation of bullet trains, but Texas will get the short end of the stick. When your a right wing state in a country with a Democratic President and Congress, that's going to happen. A lot.
