- Some Southlake residents believe they are too good for Twin Peaks restaurant. I'm not.
- I bet if you were watching one of the financial channels when the Dow dropped 1,000 points in 15 minutes yesterday, you would have thought the sky was falling.
- And I'll hand it to Jim Cramer, the nutty analyst, who saw that Procter & Gamble was down 30% and yelled, "That can't be right! Buy it!" It quickly corrected itself and shot back up.
- Fox 4 has a new traffic monitoring screen that has shows the flow of traffic around the metroplex (green, yellow, and red moving dashes.) It looks really accurately -- like the iPhone traffic app that uses GPS readings of cars and comparing it to the norm.
- Looked ahead on my jogging trail yesterday to see a four foot snake. That will stop a man in his tracks. And even though I know better, I took a 20 foot loop around him thinking he'd charge me at any second.
- The annual Arizona State Undie Run for charity was last Tuesday. I wonder where a link for that would be? Oh, here.
- There was some CPS case going on up at the courthouse yesterday where, I was told, CPS was seeking to take a kid away from a mom for the fourth or fifth time. And I mean four or five different kids.
- And there were a lot of unhappy deputies out in the hallway who had been subpoenaed to testify.
- This seems to have flown under the radar: Mark Cuban is going to partner with Girls Gone Wild.
- I saw the story on Fox 4 this morning about 10 times concerning a motorcycle crash on Central Expressway last night. But I was so hypnotized by the fact that the bike went a quarter of a mile on its own after the rider fell off that I don't know if he died. (He was racing. Ninja style.)
- Got a court appointed client's case wrapped up in a really good deal yesterday. She left without saying thank you. Happens all the time.
- The Cowboys are set to trade LB Bobby Carpenter. Good riddance. There was nothing more revealing than watching teammates a couple of years ago call him "Barbie" during the filming of Hard Knocks.
