Random Friday Morning Thoughts

  • It's hard to believe someone would leave a child in the car for hours (one died in Dallas yesterday), but then I think about all of the millions of people out there who are as goofy as the day is long.
  • What was that first sentence again? Oh, my.
  • The remake of A Nightmare On Elm Street opens this weekend, but I had no idea Freddy would be played by Jackie Earle Haley. That guy was out of circulation for years until he came back in the great Little Children.
  • But I hate horror movies.
  • The ex-Denton DA is under investigation. I don't know what to make of it because there is nothing more wonky than Denton County politics, and people in the criminal justice system over there are, well, just a little different.
  • We got a new computer in the office that came with Word 2007. Sheesh, they really tricked it up.
  • Every time I see the footage of the oil slick in the gulf, I hear Sarah Palin shrieking "Drill, baby, drill!"
  • There was a shocking story in Texas Monthly this week about a guy, Mauricio Celis, in Corpus Christi who made millions of dollars pretending to be a lawyer and running down PI cases (ambulance chasing) and then referring them to real plaintiff's lawyers for a cut. Sleazy, sleazy.
  • A flash mob on Baylor campus doing the Thriller Beat It dance this week.
  • Why do I hate Rick Carlisle of the Mavericks? Last year you would have been shocked at his attitude during radio interviews. Condescending doesn't begin to do it justice. And when he mocked Chuck Cooperstein's nervous laughter during an interview (it's famous in the sports talk radio world), he's been in my crosshairs ever since.
  • Hal Jay on WBAP this morning (seriously): "So losing in the first round of the NBA playoffs is not a successful year?"

Barry, you perceptive genius you, ... that Baylor event was the dance to "Beat It" ... not "Thriller". (There is a hidden clue in the fact that the music being played is ... "BEAT IT.")

Hey Barry, stop listening to WBAP if it bothers you so bad.

Good luck with Word 2007. Most days I like it but they've made it so sensible now---that it will trip you up!

a little bit of factual info. you might find interesting... the ad in the messenger stating quotes from kids supporting Ruby Quanz was not ok'ed by their parents! In fact some of these parents didn't know anything about the statements until they read them in the paper!! After parents dissaproved this, the ad was pulled. and she says she has no "hidden agendas" ha!

Uh, Jackie Earle Haley was in Watchmen as Walter Kovacs/Rorschach. He was made for the role, one of the best characters in the movie. The actors chosen seemed to all fit perfectly in their roles.

I am not usually a Conspiracy Theorist type of a guy. But one would begin to wonder about the oil rig blowing up very soon after President Obama came out with his semi-approval for such action. Tree Hugger type groups have been known to sink ships, break into research facilities and such. Maybe, just maybe they decided not to wait for it to happen but make it happen and kill the idea for good.

Any Guy who admits he hates Horror movies is purdy much sayin he's Gay cuz scary stuff scares Gays right outta their clothes and into bed.

Ruby Quanz is nothing but a politician on a power trip. Will tell you anything to get your vote then finds a way to "explain away" when she votes differently on those issues. I heard the people in her church are all voting against her. If you don't trust and respect someone you go to church with that says a lot about a person's character.

I thought the only good thing about Watchmen was the hotty-hot hottedness of Malin Akerman

If Rick Carlisle made fun of Chuck Cooperstein then I think Rick is sorry too.

I think everyone who hates oil should stop using it....or STFU

Elder claims "no hidden agenda", yet we all know it's turf, indoor practice facility etc. Same agenda for Clayton.

DISD...good luck finding a Superintendant with the current board members.. meaning jerry and ruby. It's deffinately time for change and if elder and clayton can do it, more power to them... really tired of seeing all this about them being of educational background..... give it up! your background hasn't proven anything thus far..time for them to be senior citizens in this community! give it up on the turf thing..its time for that too!

I happen to know of someone else running for county wide office. They teach in a local district. They sent home letters with each of their students asking the parents to vote for them. Their husband works in another district and did the same.

I live in Bridgeport and have know Jeff a long time. Too bad we can't get someone of his character to run for school board over here.

Your over the top political comments are asinine

Palin......please. Like any republican or democrat had anything to do with an accident.

Let me hear you spout that Obama is the reason for all gang killings then.

How horribly selfish to knowingly have a child that is likely to only have a mom for a few years.
