Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • Yesterday was a heck of a sports day: (1) The overtime soccer goal by Team USA, (2) the crazy marathon Wimbledon match that resumes this morning, and (3) an eighth inning, two out, 3-2 count grand slam by TCU in the College World Series last night which might have been one of the most exciting things I've ever seen.
  • Funny line yesterday about that long Wimbledon match: You could have boarded a plane at DFW right after the first serve and arrived at the stadium before they stopped play due to darkness.
  • A friend of mine was asking for suggestions for a place to eat in Dallas and a couple of people suggested the restaurant in The Ritz or the one in Hotel ZaZa. Really? I guess I'd do that once in five years for some type of celebration, but just on a regular trip to Dallas?
  • I think the restaurant bang-for-the-buck ratio is way out of whack.
  • BagOfNothing.com tracked down the cover of Rolling Stone that contained the interview that got the general in trouble with Obama. Oh, my.
  • Lady GaGa is just a modern day tricked up Madonna, right?
  • I dreamed/dreamt last night that I was clinging to a wall of Palo Duro Canyon.
  • The 911 tapes of the Lancaster cop shooting were released yesterday. I understand why they should be public (government has no business keeping that information private), but I'm not sure it's necessary for every news outlet to play them.
  • Limited interest: If you are thinking about getting the debuting iPhone 4, you might want to read this about problems that were reported yesterday.
  • I would link to the Al Gore "sex crime scandal" but since it lacks an ounce of credibility, I won't.
  • The Decatur School Board may name a new superintendent tonight. Some have speculated that it will be Melinda Reeves, but I have no idea.
  • The Rangers have won 10 in a row -- all against bad teams, but it's still a heck of a feat. However, I'm changing my earlier prediction and predicting failure for the last half of the season.
  • A collection of youtube videos of unruly airplane passengers. I had never seen one of the guy putting the kid in the overhead compartment.
  • NBC5's Jane McGarry created a twitter account about three weeks ago and I can't believe it's her. (Although everyone tells me it's real.) She's funny and witty and posts more "hey, nows" than I do. (Example.)

You won't link to the Gore sex scandal but you would not think twice before linking to a Bush scandal.

I am a Republican and I don't care at all for Al Gore, but I have to agree with you on this. Sounds as if this woman just threw the accusation out there expecting to get something and then had second thoughts immediately.

Sounds like a little "payola" took place with authorities in the Algore unwanted sexual contact matter?

All things are possible, and the Turfers did make alliances with the Reeves disciples (witness Montgomery's letter in Mess and signs in her yard) but there is one un assailable fact.

Story now controls the board. His AD position was once under Reeves as HS Principal, but he got that moved under Kenneday and is now answerable only to Supt. Can't imagine him wanting Reeves back as his boss.

The 911 tapes didn't do that much for me. Can you imagine being a 911 operator in Obammy's community that he organized? I think they had something like forty shootings last weekend.

No, you could not have boarded a plane at DFW right after the first serve and arrived before they stopped the match. Flight time from DFW to London Heathrow might be about the same, but you don't take off until some time after boarding, and you've got to clear customs, and Heathrow can take a while, then train or cab to a station from which you can trek to Wimbledon, etc. Not happening.

Send your friend to Abacus for some good eats!

I posted a long winded essay on this blog earlier why the Rangers would not have success in the latter half of the season, I still stand by that.

I am with Rick Perry, who the hell is Jane McGarry?

WOW 10:13. In the time it took you to destroy a time comparison I just aged that EXACT amount of time. Then factor in the boredom time I experienced, which we all know varies but usually expands the amount of perceived time, and I want that part of my LIFE BACK.

"Extended play" is not "overtime". ...nevermind what should I expect from people that watch cars race around in a circle and hate Obama.

We don't hate B Ho. We despise him.

"Random Thoughts girl looks like a white-trash version of Amy Smart."

Isn't that redundant?

McGarry does throw out a couple of impressive "hey, nows".

The lamestream media decided not to cover the love child of liberal weenie John Edward either because they thought it didn't have an ounce of credibility so we had to rely on the National Enquirer for them to prove that it did. Welcome to the new media, Al.

Reeves and a Turf field it don't get no better than this!
When will somebody look into this and see we have a problem at good ole DHS

Anonymous said...

story doesn't control anyone. his team is going to be terrible this year and there is no way disd taxpayers will approve a turf field (especially in this economy). time to move on to somewhere else man.

bring on the liquor sales and on-premises alcohol consumption in decatur. everyone needs to sign the petition and get this to a vote!

If Reeves didn't receive an interview, I don't believe there's any way the board can hire her tonight.

Sounds like Al left some global warmism jism on her black pants.

3:17, exactly what is the problem at DHS?

The problem in DISD is not at DHS

There will be a turf connection with the hiring!

Wait and see.

Man, who knew that Jane was such a dirty girl? I would have watched KXAS more.

Agree with your GaGa analysis. She just GagGags me now.

And Al likes a hotel room massage? Wow, I feel the climate getting warmer as I read that.

Just read the statement from the victim of Al Gore's attempted rape on Smoking Gun. Sounds credible to me. Sounds like she has some DNA evidence.

For five forty an hour I don't what she didn't expect.Of course I dno't know what his going rate is.

If there is a problem at DISD, it IS NOT DHS - I agree with 7:44.

10:14, what were you on when you typed that? I can't make heads or tails of your post.

He he- I was told MKR didn't read this blog. Guess she does after all.
