Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • Reports from the Dallas Cowboys training camp are extremely boring. And I seriously doubt if some reporter truly knows if a backup tackle "struggled with his footwork in the morning session."
  • Fox 4 News at 9:00 has started experimenting with live debates with Steve Eager playing a major role. Sometimes it's great, but last night's heavily edited one (obviously not "live") covering the Arizona law was awful.
  • OK, painting was fun but I'm ready for it to be over.
  • I'm insane now.
  • Shout out to contractor/Wise Countian Scott Chapman who has bent over backwards helping me solve some home improvement problems.
  • Vintage 1975 NFL photos. (You've got to an older guy to enjoy those, but there are some pretty good memories in there.)
  • There was a time I would eat a cheeseburger and cheese fries at Snuffer's on Greenville Avenue. (The Morning News just published their "best burgers" article.)
  • Homeownership rates had steadily risen since 1995 but now they are plummeting -- currently the rate is 66.9%.
  • I'm absolutely convinced there is NO WAY Jane McGarry is writing for her twitter feed. Maybe a son? Daughter? Young producer at the station?
  • Everyone is catching "Ranger Fever" but few remember that the last time they made the playoffs in the 1990s that they didn't even sellout their home playoff games.
  • I looked for the handout comparing the budgets for Wise County Departments for last year and this year online but didn't see them.
  • Sports Media News: Fox's Daryl "Moose" Johnston and Jay "I Spoke With The Coach A Second Ago" Glazer are moving to the NFL Network.
  • Mexican violence bleeding over into the U.S.? Not so fast. As of May 26th, the number of murders in Juarez had reach 1,000 this year. The number across the border in El Paso? One. And it wasn't even drug related. (Texas Monthly, August 2010, p. 111)

Re: Wise County Handouts

County Road 3451 was resurfaced about three month ago. It has been wonderful to drive on a good road. Now, with no deterioration of the surface recently completed, money is being spent to resurface a road that is in excellent condition. Drive down it today before they complete covering the old surface and you will see what I am talking about. And if your poor road is being ignored you will be very pissed off.

Today's random pic is a repeat, soooo...I would say that we have collectively already shot our wad regarding comments on the stain

and 8:28 is not the original TF, who would have said something like "Can't be mine, chief. I'm way classier than blue jeans, I only aim for blue dresses. (Just kidding, darlin'...meet me in the hallway in ten minutes)"

How do you think the Mexicans that spent thousands of dollars and years to formalize their paperwork to become US citizens are feeling today?

It's a great day for America. The AZ law was unconstitutional. It promotes racial profiling, which is illegal in the US. There needs to be a pathway to citizenship for the 11-20 million illegal aliens. Its just too costly to round them up and ship them back, plus, how do actually find all of them. That way, they can start paying taxes. The next step is comprehensive immigration reform. Its a federal issue, not a city, county or state issue.

Ok tell the poor folks along the border it's a federal issue when the feds are miles away from the problem.These people chose to enter the country illegally.And we could round them up and in the long run it would be cheaper.Just think of the jobs it would create and free up a lot of resources that citizens of this country have a legal right too.No amnesty for criminals!
