- Cars were sliding off the roadways all over the place this morning in Wise County. I guess that bit about a combination or a little rain with roadways built up with oil and grit is true.
- The guy that slammed into the tanker truck in Fort Worth causing the death of it's driver in a fireball had been at a club in Fort Worth called Embargo. According to its web site, that night was called/featured "Mezcla Latino." Somebody tell me what that means.
- Almost saw an on field controversy last night at a 2nd Grade softball game as to whether there were two or three outs.
- Yesterday's Random Thoughts were riddled with words that sound the same but are spelled differently. Hey, I type fast. I was going to refer to them as homonyms but then it seemed like the correct word was homophone and now I think they may technically be called heterographs. That's unnecessarily confusing.
- A national sports columnist (who I can't decide it brilliant or a nutcase) reports that Bobby Knight is going to Purdue for $10 million a year for three years. Maybe he's a nutcase after all.
- An apartment balcony collapsed led to a man's death in Kaufman over the weekend. The fall was only 12 feet but having concrete fall along with you would not help your odds.
- That apartment complex put notices on a handful of apartments telling them their home was unsafe. On WFAA, a couple was complaining they had no where to go because "we both work at McDonald's and have four kids."
- Woke Mrs. LL up yesterday and she groggily reached towards the corner of the bed and said something about trying to find the "curbside speakers."
- The Wise County Sheriff's Office is auctioning off two donkeys and a pig on Saturday.
- A cobra escaped from the Bronx Zoo a couple of days and apparently he has started a Twitter account while on the run. Funny. Very funny.
- Anyone know what's going on with Fox 4's morning anchor Tim Ryan? I think I've seen him on TV one time in three weeks.
- My "hey, now" radar has been going off lately for actress Amy Adams.
- I saw last week the weird story of a deputy sheriff being injured by a cow in East Texas but didn't mention it here. I will now because the deputy died yesterday.
- Libya: When W invaded Iraq, I just thought he was a reckless redneck who was going after someone "who tried to kill my dad." With Obama's attack on Libya, I think something deeply calculated is going on behind the scenes that he's lying to us about.
- Despite our propensity to bomb anything that moves, Congress hasn't passed a Declaration of War since World War II.
- Lots of buzz about Skip Hollandsworth's new article in Texas Monthly about a "1970s serial killer nobody have ever heard of." I haven't read "The Lost Boys" yet but it's available online here
