- Rick Perry vetoed the "no texting while driving" bill which, although the right thing to do, is yet another huge sign he'll run for President on a No Big Government Policy.
- Bridgeport Tank Trucks runs a big ad every week in the Fort Worth Weekly looking for CDL drivers. Just seems like an odd place to do that.
- A triple murder in Arlington over the weekend leaves eight kids without moms.
- In case you missed it, the dead body found in Wise County last week is believed to be the result of a self-inflicted gunshot. The lady was from Southlake. (Photo and odd Facebook page.)
- A drainage dispute over the Flower Bed Project caused me to concede to Mrs. LL for the sake of peacefulness. Although it did require a lot of digging on my part to put the concession into action.
- We ate at Sardines over the weekend. It feels like a mob hangout.
- I may have mentioned this, but I tend to beat her down while dining because every time I have to fire off the line, "I'm beginning to think Buddy Holly isn't much of a waiter." (Pulp Fiction)
- The Wichita County Sheriff's Office has a great website for inmate information. We've been waiting on Wise County to relaunch the equivalent for months.
- I went out to the jail on Friday to visit an inmate and brought a Diet Coke along with me. Based upon the reaction from the other side of the glass, I learned inmates don't get Diet Coke.
- I feel badly because I think Casey Anthony is guilty when there really isn't much proof to support that conclusion.
- Baseball notes: (1) I can't imagine why someone would sit in the sun for a Rangers' game on Saturday or Sunday, and (2) Josh Hamilton can't hit a baseball during the day (he's 1 of 33 since coming back from the DL and struck out four times on Saturday. He blamed the problem on his blue eyes. Really.)
- My delayed retorts: (1) Breitbart showing the naked photo of Rep. Weiner certainly constitutes "releasing" the photo, and (2) if you think the Bill of Rights only applies to Congress, google "incorporation doctrine" (a doctrine that is silly but the law nonetheless.)
- But to those who think the Constitution is the greatest document ever drafted, think again. The First Amendment, for example, says Congress shall enact "no law . . . abridging the freedom of speech." That can't be any clearer. It is completely absolute. As written, Congress should not be able to regulate pornography, expressions of terrorism, copyright, and the list goes on. It took the courts to completely rewrite it.
- I woke up Mrs. LL to endorse a check this morning. She was so sleepy, I'm not sure she knows what she signed.
- Terrell Owens blew out his ACL and will have surgery. He's done.
