Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • Let's see, can you pick out the hottest judge on the Texas Supreme Court? Hey, now.
  • I recorded last night, but haven't watched, Gasland on HBO which I think is a documentary on natural gas drilling. It's been getting lots of press.
  • That son of the Dallas Police Chief who killed two people over the weekend sounds like he was one disturbed individual. (He ended up killing an innocent guy and then killing the cop who was the first responder.)
  • And Fox 4 said last night that someone at the apartment complex took a cell phone pic of the first guy that was murdered and uploaded it to the Internet. That's beyond ghoulish.
  • Being know as the police chief whose son was a "cop killer" isn't exactly an enviable position.
  • This heat isn't as intense as the Summer of 1980, but its got some similarities right now.
  • Holy cow, I just saw the photo of the car that was occupied by the now three dead individuals in last night's Wise County crash. (Scroll down on Update.)
  • But in the description of the story at the top of the Update, the word "cranium" seems like an odd use of the word.
  • After listening to Greg "The Hammer" Williams return to radio on The Fan for the last handful of weeks, it sounds like he's going to be all right. (But what's with that late afternoon show? Sounds like a couple of guys from Philly who just say stupid things to rile people up.)
  • I always buy little tomatoes that are packaged in a red mesh. In an undisclosed grocery store not in Wise County yesterday, I picked one up which also had packaged within it a dead baby mouse. Yep. Dead. Baby. Mouse. (I'm pretty sure it was not on the list of ingredients.) In order to avoid seeing some housewife scream bloody murder, I took it to a clerk and told him he might want to get rid of it. He wasn't as shocked to see it as I was which make me thinks those guys see a lot of weird things.
  • I took a picture of it.
  • Channel 8's Cynthia Izaguirre's nose ran into a garage door that is keeping here temporarily off the air.
  • Crazy thing about World Cup soccer injuries: They immediately run two guys onto the field with a stretcher who plop the injured player (or faker) on there and run him off. It's very Benny Hill.
  • I've had lots of clients over the last year that were out of work due to the oil field going bust. But I've noticed more than one tell me they'll be going to work in Pennsylvania where drilling is booming. Pennsylvania?
  • According to the Dallas Morning News twitter feed, they are about to report on a 9 month old that was seriously injured last night while riding a motorcycle driven by a 12 year old. Good grief. Edit: Wow. They retracted it. No serious injury and no infant.
  • If I don't get an "A" for this golden Random Thoughts edition from commenter/grader/mystery man "Jim", I'm filing a protest.

I watched Gasland last night, it was beyond sad, and I still haven't gotten the courage to stick a cigarette lighter up next to my water faucet.

Re the Cynthia Izaguirre story:

You have to chuckle that the garage door took her out of action. Good for a week worth of shows. When garage doors attack!

And who is her boyfriend?

I just want you to know Barry boy you were getting an A- for great thougts great links and pretty good chics of the day. But reading the last line I went back thru and read it all again. Got me a possible new show out of it and actually took the time to look at the judge link. You have been upgraded my friend...

Would have been an A+ with a littel better random chic.

Gasland only shows one side of the story of course and its the land owner that has no gas rights. Its amazing

Cool! Another town like Farmers Branch, TX:

'Neb. city votes to restrict illegal immigration'

Gettin rid of illegals

Still chuckling at 11:09am.

Gasland is about 25% truth, 75% histrionics, and won't do much to change opinions one way or the other.

If you live in Wise County, know anything about oil and gas, and didn't know about the Pennsylvania work, (or Louisianna, or Arkansas) then maybe you don't know anything about oil and gas. (And will probably LOVE Gasland).

And for my most important feedback...

What is up with Hoochie Mama on the right? The Top don't match the bottom... and I AM talking about the bikini.

Dude, you've never heard of...PENNZOIL? That place is rich with gas, coal, and oil. Where have you been?

I bet those other judge-guys are thankful they're wearing robes, and sitting behind benches

If they showed the soccer highlights with injuries, and the Benny Hill music was playing, I'd watch that. Not the games, just the highlights. You gotta draw the line somewhere

'mater-mouse:
what kind of attorney returns an item like that? Can you say lawsuit? Kardashian and Racehorse Haynes are rolling over in their solid gold coffins. Wouldn't the emotional distress from that be worth a couple mil?
Oh, never mind. I just remembered... attorneys lose their emotions when the heart is excised
heehee

"If the mouse is in mesh - two mil for distress!"

Anonymous said...

@ 12:34 . . . news reports of Racehorse's death have been greatly exaggerated. Unless, of course, being still alive he likes to spend time in a solid gold coffin.

I could have sworn that guy was dead. Maybe I'm thinking of his soul...

They'll be working the Marcus Shale field in PA. It is no joke and safer than deep water drilling.

8:39 re DPD Chief

What a slippery slope if we start penalizing parents for the sins of their adult children.

Totally support fining the devil out of parents who don't control their young children.

I never said the DPD chief should resign out of penalty for the actions of his adult son. You ASSumed that.

Honestly, if Kunkle was still there and was set to retire next week, and Brown was being considered for the DPD chief position, and this shooting/killing ocurred with his son, do you think Brown would get the job?

My guess is no. He would pull himself from the running.
