- David Cassidy and Davey Jones are performing at the Nokia music place (official name) in Grand Prairie on Saturday. I wonder how many people they can draw? And I wonder how many people have no idea who they are?
- Facebook was launched six years ago today. Mafia Wars will whip us for the next six.
- It's funny when someone writes that "Today's Random Thoughts were boring." Hoss, they are always boring.
- Kay Bailey having Nolan Ryan in a commercial is probably the smartest thing she has done. And that's kind of odd since his claim to fame is that he can throw a baseball.
- The federal government will buy a 30 second Super Bowl ad to remind people about the Census. No wonder our deficit is a krillion dollars.
- Longtime Bridgeport residents couldn't help but notice the passing of Martha Selz this week. She was the longtime wife of Dr. Leo Selz who died just a few weeks ago. Good people. Married forever. Leaving this world at about the same time.
- I saw Larry the Cable Guy on Fox and Friends last week. Ultimate beating. (And is Steve Doocy gay?)
- Another high profile suicide: A 26 year old whose last name was synonymous with Dallas pizza. What in the heck is going on out there?
- I guess we'll start seeing plants bloom in about 30 to 40 days. That said, the next 30 to 40 days are the most depressing days of the year.
- Yeah, I didn't do The Spin this week, and I'm thinking about discontinuing it. Other than upsetting a grumpy "Cold War Veteran", it really serves no purpose.
- It was National Signing Day yesterday. It's also the day where the phrase, "We had one of our best classes ever" is uttered every five seconds across the nation.
- Has Wise County ever had a football player sign with a Big 12 school? I know we've had SMU and TCU signings, but what about one of the big ones? Edit: I always forget about Billy Joe Tolliver (Texas Tech.)
- I would have hated to have been offered a scholarship to some spare school like Southeastern Baptist Oklahoma (made up name.) Do you turn down a free ride to a place you don't want to go to?
- There was a news out of San Antonio yesterday of a mother stabbing to death her two very young children (1 and 3) and then calling the cops on herself. After the rash of mothers-gone-crazy stories over the years, does that story not even warrant headlines anymore?
