Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • Minority owner Ross Perot Jr. sued, in essence, the Dallas Mavericks claiming the club is losing money hand over fist. Mark Cuban responded in his normal annoying fashion. But, man, those guys don't like each other. (That was a small news blurb at 8:00 p.m. last night and then blew up over night.)
  • I'm not exactly sure what happened, but a lady was wailing (and I mean wailing) in the Wise County Courthouse yesterday after she lost primary custody of her child.
  • There's a burglary of a habitation case being tried in felony court in Decatur this week. Not exactly riveting stuff.
  • I really don't have any problem with Elena Kagan, Obama's nominee for the Supreme Court, never having tried a case or been a judge. That Court is bizarrely academic.
  • And I love Obama saying Kagan has a habit of "understanding before disagreeing." We could all practice that a little bit more.
  • There was a perfect game pitched in baseball on Sunday (by a former Texas Tech player), and I was able to catch the last out on TV simply because I was tipped off by Twitter.
  • This is funny: "Fake Yo Yo Trickster Fools Every TV Station Everywhere."
  • Betty White is getting wildly praised for her performance on SNL. But it's a lot easier to succeed in this world when everyone watching you wants you to succeed.
  • Maybe I didn't give The Pacific enough time since more and more people seem to praise it. But when I watched it there was a time waste with a long dinner scene and sex scene. That's not exactly what I had in mind when I thought I'd learn about the Pacific theater in WWII.
  • The death of Lena Horne didn't get my attention at all because I was basically unfamiliar with her. Growing up a white boy in a small town in Texas will do that to you.
  • I've had three people within the last week make it a point to walk across the room to tell me how much the like this silly Blog. Two of them were complete strangers. I get sooo uncomfortable when that happens.
  • When MzChief goes on a tear, she goes on a tear.
  • Dallas Observer's Richie Whitt releases his Top 10 Hottest Women In DFW TV. What? No Fiona? She only makes Honorable Mention? The Bush-Gore vote wasn't this flawed!
  • I don't buy Tiger Woods "injured neck" proclamation which allegedly caused him to withdraw during the last round of last week's tournament. You can spot someone with that problem. Anyone remember Barry Switzer during the Cowboys final Super Bowl season? He looked absolutely in pain holding the Lombardi Trophy with Jerry.
  • Do you know how many minutes my cell phone bill said I used last month?: 9. I don't do social calls.
  • I wonder if the Wise County Sheriff's Office ever found that lady that escaped from a patrol car in handcuffs?

any one know what's being planned for the cleared NW corner of 380 and 51?

Hank Haney quit Tiger Woods last night. He said he told him over a text message conversation.
He was on the Ticket this morning. Said it was just time for a change.

Gosh, the yo yo guy reminds me of most of the lawyers in Decatur. All like to talk but when it comes time for what they say they can do, they end up hitting themselves in their nads.

- Regarding Kagan's understandingness, Obama saying anything about his nominee is like Ron Popeil telling us to "set it and forget it." Obama has a product to sell, and just because he says something don't make it so. And as "academic" as you believe the current court to be, all of them have experience as judges. Without a judicial track record, the major example of Kagan's judgment (which is the job description) is her attempt to ban the military from Harvard because she disagrees with "don't ask, don't tell." Ideological, much?

Will Kagan recuse herself from cases involving gays in the military, gay marriage and other LGBT issues, since she's already expressed her opinion? How about Obama administration policies that she may have helped to formulate? From any and all cases that bear her name from when she served as SG?

You would'nt have a problem with Kagan as a supreme court justice, she's completely inexperienced, anti-military and a dike.

I can't believe Lauren Przybyl made the hot list! She's overweight and has a Horse Mouth, can't stand to watch her!

A lot of us wouldn't mind if a certain white boy moved to south Dallas since he feels he didn't have a diverse upbringing.

BO has picked Kagan because she is the only progressive he could find that doesn't have a paper trail of spewing marxist/socialist ideals a mile long.

BO needs to take some of her advice - he hates people who disagree with him.

Your timing for watching The Pacific was terrible.You watched the one episode that had about zero combat scenes. Not that the parts you saw were bad, but yes, they were the farthest removed from the action in the Pacific. But those guys did eat dinner and scare up women in their down time, so that was representative of their experience. Just remember that the series is based on the books by/about the three main characters - Basilone, Leckie, and Sledge

I call BS on your Lena Horne cop-out. Where and how you grew up is not an excuse. She's pretty much the Hollywood version of Jackie Robinson

When mzchef goes on a tear, most of us, by now, usually just think "Who pulled her string?"

MzChief needs to go on a tear more often. I like watching MzChief mop the floor with the dumbasses.

At this point you would have to be a shallow sycophant to enjoy anything Obama has to say.

Scott said...

Obama is all talk and no action. Remember how he advised everyone a few weeks ago that, if you watched Fox News, then try to watch CNN or MSNBC some to get both sides. Too bad he never tries to get both sides of the story himself.

He kept screaming about bi-partisanship during the healthcare debates, but did everything possible to make sure that the Republicans were not involved.

Uh, maybe she lost primary custody of her child?

Why is there always a conspiracy theory? I'm thinking you are just jumping on the pile with lots of other media types.

Why isn't a neck pain with a bulging disc a reason to withdraw from a tournament?

I bet Tiger could physically coach a football team right now too.... but playing a sport is a different thing.

I am all about understanding before disagreeing...I understand that before a liberal opens his/her mouth I am going to disagree!

I am like you, I want to believe that the Tiger Woods pullout, no pun intended, was contrived but I actually believe he is hurting. ESPN Radio guys made a good point yesterday with comparisons to Kobe and others involve in scandals, once they started winning their past deeds were largely forgotten. No better medicine than a win right now for Tiger, it would give the media something else to talk about, the focus would not be on his misdeeds but his performance again. The injury is the worst because it opens the media to more speculation and allows them to focus on the past!

Your Lena Horne comment explains the racial guilt and shame that some of your comments demonstrate. Not all white men feel that way. When one has experienced reverse bigotry, one tends to not experience guilt for being a white man.

Maybe you've been out of law school too long, Barry. Those Constitutional Law Professors are "theoretically" scary!

Random Tuesday Afternoon News Recap (taken from today's Star-Telegram section B, page 8)

1. Some of you may have heard about this incident that happened last year in Southlake. I'll refresh your memory by summarizing the case with two incongruous statements that could be made by the defendant:
"I drive a Bentley."
"I've been banned from the Southlake Chick-fil-A."

2. A woman and her boyfriend return from a party and wake up later that night when her brother brings her son into the room to sleep with them. The boy has a temperature of 104 and the woman calls 911. Toxicology tests indicate the boy has amphetamines and methamphetamines in his system. When questioned, the woman's brother tells police: "I only smoke weed."

How the heck did Lauren Pbgz ... Pzyr...Pretzel ... make the list and Fiona not? It's rigged...

I love the fact that vague comments that do not in the slightest bit point specifically to one person in Wise county are removed and most likely because ONE person, complains and thinks they are about him. Grow a backbone barry and let funny comments that don't give specific names stay and damn the people who think that those comments are about them.

10:30, I agree. Pathetically stupid sounding "white boy" comment. And it perfectly demonstrates Barry's narcissistic cluelessness. So backwoods low rent.

So Obama's vision for the Supreme Court is putting a bunch of homely women on it?
