- I couldn't help but watch the Sean Hannity and Sarah Palin lovefest last night on the Fox News Channel. She seemed a little down.
- But it also seemed she was seriously hinting at running for president. Please, please, please.
- And then I got to see the story about the Reagan boys feuding. (One claims Reagan's Alzheimer's began while he was still in office.) One things for sure: The believe in capitalism as both of them ho themselves out to sell their books.
- I felt like I was jacked up on caffeine all day yesterday -- I tried to jog it out of me in the evening but that didn't even seem to work.
- A restaurant on the square in Waxahachie went up in flames this morning three weeks after it was purchased.
- The Family Cat likes to knock over a potted plant onto the carpet. This leads to an ugly exchange between the two of us -- me yelling and her ignoring. Cats can't show remorse? None?
- The outside of Cowboys Stadium has a huge screen looking thing that I don't think is a screen. What's it for? (Other than to put the Super Bowl logo on it this week.)
- This isn't for everyone, but last week's This American Life podcast was fascinating: "The Invention of Money." The second segment dealt with the Federal Reserve (in understandable English) and even had a sound bite from Ron Paul. (Jarhead would have gone crazy with glee.)
- A Fort Worth man was electrocuted yesterday near Chico. (He passed away but can you be "electrocuted" and survive? Or does it necessarily mean death.)
- I had a radio in the bathroom that would shock me as a kid -- and I don't mean a spark on my finger -- I'm talking about a blast that would run up my arm and cause excruciating pain. I remember telling my parents "that radio shocks me sometimes," but I think they thought I was just talking about static electricity.
- The Dallas Morning News has a new look today (better), but I haven't run into any "paid only" content as promised.
- I don't think the Dallas mayor has a chance in the world of winning Kay Bailey's Senate seat. And if I had to bet, I put money on the despicable David Dewhurst (who will be sure to feature campaign commercials showing him on a horse.)
- Dick Cheney has a heart pump that "leaves [him] without a pulse because it pushes blood continuously instead of mimicking the heart’s own beat." Wow.
- This was very political today.
