- Still no official news story about it, but it appears a couple got into an argument and a man jumped to his death off the balcony of the Love Shack in the stockyards in Fort Worth yesterday. (Photo of balcony.) Now that's irony.
- On a lighter note, I heard that's a good place to eat.
- The Aggies and Longhorns both make the college world series. Dallas Baptist, which had a good story going, got knocked out by California.
- There is a Tarrant County trial that started yesterday which deals with some gruesome facts concerning alleged murders in Kennedale. Nevertheless, I'm not sure why the prosecutor needed an hour for an opening statement. I'm not sure I've ever seen a judge that would allow it.
- The Older Kid in the House was delivered at band camp yesterday. I think mom is realizing the goodbyes from a 13 year old aren't the same as they used to be. Uh oh.
- Add "Hard 8 BBQ" to the following restaurants in Roanoke: Babe's Chicken Dinner House, Twisted Root Burger Co., Classic Cafe, Prairie House, Tortilla Flats and Gerhard's.
- There is a bizarre case going on where the sheriff of Winkler County, Texas is facing criminal charges for retaliation against a couple of whistleblower nurses. If you are in the legal or medical profession, you'd probably be fascinated by it. It was also the subject of last week's radio show, This American Life. Good stuff.
- If you want to beat on me for my Mavs prediction, you should really jump on Morning News columnist Jean-Jacques Taylor. Check out what he had written here (about 75% of the way down.)
- At a Tea Party rally in Austin on Saturday, one speaker said that Texas won't pass illegal immigration legislation because there are "too many Hispanics" in the legislature and that needs to change. Oh, my. I wonder how the Hispanic leader of the Bridgeport Tea Party feels about that? (But, man, that audio is horrible.)
- A north Fort Worth strip club, a stabbing, a bouncer, and a dead patron does not sound like a good scene. And the place looks seedy.
- Dale Hansen went off last night on how it's a little silly to call the Mavericks the "world" champions.
