The Campaign For DA


Random Friday Morning Thoughts

  • The Dallas Morning News is calling for a moratorium on the death penalty. Finally, these times they are a changin'.(Although they sure did bury it within a list of priorities.)
  • The Big 12 sure isn't showing up in the Bowl Games this week: Baylor lost, Kansas State lost (on a salute in the end zone), and Nebraska shockingly lost to Washington. 
  • The UConn women's team lost last night which means #2 Baylor could move to #1 (which really doesn't seem fair because UConn squeaked by Baylor earlier this year.) And I admit that it's sad I have to resort to women's basketball.
  • I use Ctrl + z a lot. Edit: Holding down the Crtl key and clicking on the z key creates an "undo". Whether it be in a Word document or on a blog, if you delete something accidentally and then immediately hit Ctl+z, your mistake will be "undone". 
  • Jarhead had a pretty touching "year in review" post yesterday. 
  • Saw on Fox 4 this morning that Triple A will offer to pick you up and tow your car tonight for free if you are within a 10 mile radius of your home.  A little odd. 
  • Dallas DA Craig Watkins fired seven prosecutors. Some wonder if it is because they lean Republican. With that guy, I wouldn't doubt it. 
  • Mrs. LL discovered "The Real Housewives of [Whatever]" last night. Uh oh. 
  • And the 7th Grader has discovered "Toddlers & Tiaras".
  • The fact that the New Mexico governor is on TV even talking about potentially pardoning Billy the Kid is more proof of Idiocracy.
  • The Star-Telegram has an article on Bridgeport graduate and TCU Safety Colin Jones today.
  • I caught a couple of minutes of the Jay Leno monologue last night -- I hadn't watched him in over a year. Those jokes are absolutely awful
  • I got a good report on the new Mexican restaurant off the square in Decatur.
  • There was some type of photo-shoot going on in an abandoned lot near my office yesterday. There was a crew of about 10 and they kept carrying saddles in and out of there. It might have had something to do with a western wear catalog shoot. (Sorry, no hot models.)
  • Just heard on Fox 4: "One prosecutor I talked to said he can't remember anyone being killed on a No Refusal Weekend." Huh? Even without the mandatory blood draw, all of those people would have still been arrested. No Refusal has nothing to do with it.
