Random Friday Morning Thoughts


  • Our school sent out an info sheet saying that the kids might be screened for depression to prevent suicide. The 7th grader handed it to me because she did "really understand it."  I simply said they might check the kids for "depression" (without mentioning the suicide thing). "What's that?" she said. "Uh," I replied. "That's when you're really, really sad all the time and you can't pull out of it."  "Oh," she said. "That's the complete opposite of me!"  Now that made my smile. 
  • I thought the wheels-off-book-in-photo-DWI-defendant might get life in prison. He did
  • A graphic on Thursday Night Football last night showed that the Cowboy's Danny White started out at 18-1 at home. Man, he's underrated.
  • I'm waiting at a doctor's office this morning. 
  • It looks like the cold front with thunderstorms might roll in at the same time as all the playoff games tonight. 
  • I watched the first have of 30 for 30's documentary on former OU recruit Marcus Dupree. It is absolutely fantastic.
  • Mrs. LL got a new phone which has the additional video camera facting her which allows video telephone calls.  She successfully executed one yesterday -- closest thing to the Jetson's that I've seen so far.
  • Try explaining what Peter Gabriel's Shock The Monkey is about to kids. I doubt if Peter Gabriel knows what it is about. 
  • The guy that jumped on the back of the JFK limousine right after the gun shots was on Fox and Friends this morning him. See him.
  • Speaking of that show, Cloris Leachman was on this morning. That lady is certifiable crazy. 
  • If you watched all the video that was uploaded to YouTube today only, it would take you over five years. 
  • 60 Minutes will do a segment on Sunday on folks that have become millionaires by allowing drilling on their property within the Barnett Shale. Any Wise County folks going to make an appearance.

I am wondering if it would be worth while to dump all of the in-fighting posts. There are very few comments about the issues. Do you have a policy regarding polite ways to disagree? Yesterday was like a cable show with the wheels off. The anger and vitrolic language was somewhat repulsive. Anything you could do Barry to edit the people who are clueless as to how they make life harder than it needs to be??

I see when you mention the JFK assasination that you write "shotS" with an "S". Do you not believe in the single shot government explanation?

I always felt like Danny White was under appreciated. I guess that went with having to fill Roger's absence. He was a class act, both on & off the field.

Does anyone know if Baby Alley2 has arrived?

FROG:
You must have just hopped in here for the first time. This blog is driven by several divisive topics, usually instigated by our blog emcee, that inspire debate/arguments/name-calling:
- local public schools/administration
- politics on any level
- religion
- high school sports, esp. football
- the rivalry between towns in this county, esp. B'port/Decatur

Some folks do politely disagree on some or all of these subjects. Some of them also can eloquently state their arguments with valid reasoning and data. But sometimes the more interesting element of this blog is the crowd of morons (oh yeah, I said it!) that resort to name-calling and lack of evidence to support their stance (Guilty! - occasionally).
Try to think of Barry as the Jerry Springer of the inkernets. The advantage is that you don't have to look at the scummy trash that populated his TV program

the govt never stated that there was a single shot. They believed that there was one or more shooters, who got off several shots. You're probably thinking of the "magic bullet" that (supposedly) ripped into JFK's neck, went through Gov. Connally, broke his wrist and then lodged in his thigh.

You left off the most controversial topic: the beauty (or lack thereof) of the random thoughts girl(s).

As to the Barnett Shale drilling, they can drill on my land anywhere and anytime they want to! I'd love more of that mail-box money from mineral rights! Drill baby drill.

I think in in lust

FROG obviously doesn't "get" this blog. Your high-minded ideals won't fly here, so either get down with the rest of us or hop on out. I tried for some time to inject my opinion that the random thought girls were tasteless and showed a lack of class and an abundance of sexism and juvenile lust, but was ignored, so I basically gave up. You will also.

"Shock The Monkey"

Shock the monkey to life
Shock the monkey to life

Cover me when I run
Cover me through the fire
Something knocked me out' the trees
Now I'm on my knees
Cover me, darling please
Monkey, monkey, monkey
Don't you know when you're going to shock the monkey

Fox the fox
Rat the rat
You can ape the ape
I know about that
There is one thing you must be sure of
I can't take any more
Darling, don't you monkey with the monkey
Monkey, monkey, monkey
Don't you know you're going to shock the monkey

Wheels keep turning
Something's burning
Don't like it but I guess I'm learning

Shock! - watch the monkey get hurt, monkey

Cover me, when I sleep
Cover me, when I breathe
You throw your pearls before the swine
Make the monkey blind
Cover me, darling please
Monkey, monkey, monkey
Don't you know you're going to shock the monkey

Too much at stake
Ground beneath me shake
And the news is breaking

Shock! - watch the monkey get hurt, monkey

Shock the monkey
Shock the monkey
Shock the monkey to life
