blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • Arianna Huffington of the Huffington Post ate at Joe T.'s last night in Fort Worth. No website fires off more blog posts on a daily basis than hers.
  • Lake Bridgeport, which has seen a couple years of being full, is in a dicey situation as it sits at five feet low before a potentially long and dry summer.
  • New kid in the neighborhood is an overtalker. Sweet kid, but she can extend an "Ok, we'll see you later" moment into an eternity. 
  • That video of the 2 by 4 going through the car window (posted here two days ago) led Fox 4 news last night. Of course, they had to package it in a "dangers of debris on the road" news segment -- you can't just show a crazy video.
  • "Maryland Man Superglued To Walmart Toilet As A Prank." The boys on the Ticket this morning wondered why he didn't carefully inspect the seat before sitting down since it was a public restroom. Fox 4's Lauren Przybyl told us that her mother taught her to "hover." It's been a very informative morning.
  • I haven't heard what happened to the goofy "worst day of my life getting married tomorrow" guy. But you'd certainly think someone would track him down and interview him.
  • What budget crisis?: Texas adds 44 more DPS troopers to the roads today.
  • What's the world record for hitting the snooze button on an alarm. Someone in my house might have broken it this morning. 
  • Two guys kiss in the crowd at Cleveland Indians game. (:17 sec mark). America goes crazy.
  • The legal blogosphere has gone ballistic over a young lawyer who advertised himself as a specialist, had a misleading website, had his first trial (murder) stopped by the judge because he was incompetent (wow), and then proclaimed "Mistrial!" on his Facebook page as if he had done a good thing.

DPS had to cut over 100 jobs this year due to budget cuts, but since they are short over 300 positions they just cut the ones they couldnt fill...

Think Arianna is in town camping out in the infield at the NASCAR races?

Who gives a flying rats ass who Arianna is and where and what she eats?

I really don't get why it's of any interest.

How many DPS officers are there, total? It just seems like there are way, way too many of them.

Great pic, but we need a close up and a better angle, please!

Why is this mornings posts a deja vue?

If Lake Bridgeport is down five feet, point the finger at Tarrant County because it owns the water and takes it when it wants to.

And if it is a long dry summer, Tarrant County will drain Lake Bridgeport lower.

As for the Cleveland Indian guys, those of us in Texas have been subjected to watching geeky military wannabes (Aggys) tongue-wrestle their repulsive dates on TV after every football score for decades. The school-endorsed liberty for the Gomers to dry-hump their overall wearin' counterparts has caused more vomit than you'd find at a convention of bulimics.

In fact, that's why the annual Aggy game against Texas was moved from Thanksgiving. The rest of the country couldn't stomach the celebrations and the Texas defense couldn't consistently deliver a shutout.

So, in light of all that, the Indian fans weren't that bad.

And now the HuffPo has infected AOL. I wonder how impartial political coverage will be over there now?

No, I don't. We all know.

Superglued to a Walmart toilet?

Can we just imagine the EMS team keeping their cool on this one?

Ah Ha - this should make for an interesting lawsuit, complete with pics for the jury.

Don't even know or care who this arianna chick is. Your obsession with random women you think we all know about is puzzling to me

Hey 9:04, sounds like someone's a little bitter over getting caught breaking the law.

Wordkyle, I'm sure AOL will be fair and balanced, don't worry.

I know who Arianna is and she rocks. You would think these people who don..t know would want to find out

9:25 Don't blame Tarrant Co. because of lake levels. It was yo forefathers that sold the water rights.
Lake is beautiful but lakehome sales this year may be down.

Because of a pending investigation and litigation,full detail of the below statements won't be made.
The laws of this U.S. are going to the dogs. Good example is the woman getting 32 years for texting her breast to a juvenile. However, an individual with 8-10 DWI convictions can get 1 year in jail.
This is a better one. How about an individual causing a wreck which results in two fatalities. He is given a citation for......ready for this....homocide. A citation!!!???? Not arrested....not anything. Just a citation.

A wacko murder for hire suspect, a guy shooting a gun and an attorney makes for a funny front page on the Bridgeport Index.

Just because someone gets multiple DWI's doesn't compare to homocide or manslaughter. Quit Nit Pickin!
2 o/o of the people that drink and drive are caught. The other 98% get away with it. Some people like to honky tonk, nascar... and have a few. Out of the 2% that get arrested 50% of them will get another DWI just because Barney sees they've had one before or because their car is over 10 yrs old.
Bartenders should be arrested for serving to much to a person, but they get away with it all the time, even when death of the intoxicated persons credit card shows they were served 13 drinks in four hours.
Just outlaw alcohol!

Hey Cheerleader Fan,

Your latent teasip tendencies explain your lack of revulsion watching the Cleveland "guys".

Come on and tell us, how many times did you watch it?
