- Others have already said it, but pitcher Tim Lincecum of the Giants (who was on TV last night) looks just like that kid from Dazed and Confused. (And there was a scene in the movie where he was a pitcher.)
- Bud Kennedy asked last night if it is appropriate to start an article about four women vying for two political positions with the sentence, "Four ladies. Two seats." I thought it was kind of clever.
- Brooke Hogan in a bikini.
- I attended a middle school band concert last night. It finished up in less than an hour so a didn't even gripe much. (But I didn't expect to hear "Funkytown".)
- Saw a guy that showed up in jogging shorts and a white T-shirt. He wasn't poor, just oblivious.
- Worse that Rick Perry may be Lt. Governor David Dewhurst whose commercials invoke Nancy Pelosi's name and say we must "repeal Obamacare." Repeal? Our Lt. Governor votes in Congress? I know why they put stuff like that in the commercials but it's shameful.
- This "So You Want To Go To Law School" video has been popping up over the last couple of days. It's kind of inside humor.
- Commercials are promoting the next Glee episode which will focus on The Rocky Horror Picture Show - a film I've never had even the slightest bit of interest in.
- Dallas Republican Congressional candidate says the idea of a violent overthrow of the government should be "on the table." The outrage is expected but, like it or not, that idea is always on the table for every government on the planet.
- The family kitten will suck on my shirt like she's nursing. Weird.
- No offense, but why does breast cancer get so much more publicity than every other type of deadly cancer? (Chico is having a "pink out" tonight at its game, and First Financial in Decatur is serving pink lemonade today.)
- Later today, I'll be taking the longest road trip with kids in the car that I ever have in my life. I think I'll download "Holiday Road" before we take off.
- Bad timing. A jury convicts a Fort Worth man of murder. Last month, the Fort Worth Court of Appeals reversed the conviction based on the doctrine of "factually insufficient" evidence. A couple of weeks later or so, in a different case, Texas' highest criminal court holds that the "factually insufficient" doctrine is dead. The Fort Worth Court of Appeals (who still had jurisdiction for a few more days) then withdraws its opinion yesterday and upholds the conviction. Talk about an emotional roller coaster for the Defendant.
- And get this: If you are a defendant who had your conviction overturned for factually sufficient evidence in the past, you're safe. (Like this doctor who was tried for murder in Fort Worth.)
- The Rangers must win tonight. I have a bad feeling about a Game 7 regardless of Cliff Lee.
- Edit: If you're a fan of Antoine Dodson, you'll love this.
