- TMZ says that Dallas needs 10,000 more strippers for Super Bowl week. Riiiiiight. (And is there anything more annoying then those guys in the "newsroom" on the TMZ TV show?)
- A lady was doing a horrible job in the self check out line in the grocery store last night, and I sighed as I waited behind her. I guess I was a little loud because she apologized. I felt bad about that.
- I'm not sure what's going on in Egypt, but when the government shuts down the Internet to prevent protester news from getting out, it's not good.
- Can we take another week of Super Bowl coverage? I knew it would be bad, but I didn't know it would be this bad.
- There were two huge plums of smoke high in the sky to the north of Decatur this morning that looked like a missile launch.
- Tiger Woods shoots a 69 in his first tournament of the year and is five behind the leader?
- Completely missed Fox News' Megyn Kelly posing in GQ last November. Hey, now.
- I bet the Illinois Supreme Court deciding in record time yesterday that Rahm Emanuel could be on the ballot for mayor of Chicago drove the Obama haters on here crazy.
- No terrorist attacks in the first half of Obama's first term? I guess we can say "Thank you President Obama for keeping us safe over the last two years."
- ESPN's Erin Andrews was on the sideline of the TCU game and reported that the Nike shoes were causing Frog players to slip. Now she has announced a Reebok endorsement deal that had to have been in the works at the time of that report. Man, that's bad. And finally people are noticing.
- The Update reports this morning that the Decatur ISD Superintendent has received a $10,000 raise to take his salary to $145,000.
- There's also a blurb about thieves in Wise County shaving the hair off of horses' tails in Wise County. Someone explain that to me.
- I'm not 100% sure that every DNA exoneree out of Dallas County is innocent (DNA from someone else doesn't always mean he did not commit the crime), but most of these guys are black, convicted by white juries in the 1970s, and have served a ton of time. I would suspect there might be a little bit of an attitude of "we're not absolutely sure you're innocent, but you've been locked up long enough even if we're wrong."
- How Charlie Sheen isn't dead soon from partying is beyond me. (And it's funny to think the first time most of saw him was as a bit character at the Chicago Police Station in Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Pic.)
