Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts


  • That was a bizarre storm in Decatur last night with quite a few downed branches around town. And a lot of people are still without electricity. (Well, at least one of our staff members is without electricity so I consider that to be an adequate sample of the population.)
  • Mark Cuban at a urinal holding the trophy. What?
  • Journalism? WBAP does a quick story on the value of Mavericks memorabilia so they get a sound bite from an owner of a Dallas memorabilia store. Hmmmm. I wonder what he will possibly say?
  • My wheels were completely off this weekend. It doesn't happen very often, and I hate it when it happens.
  • Decatur's quarterback has a recruitment video.
  • A guy in Fort Worth allegedly got drunk at a topless club and then killed four teenagers in a wreck way  back in 2005. So the bar gets sued and finally gets to trial last week. Responsibility? 35% bar/65% driver.  Really?
  • Lawyers quote that jumped out at me: "These guys are so cheap and so greedy, they don't even buy insurance to protect the public."  Translated: "I may never collect on this verdict."
  • Quote #2: "[My clients are happy] the jury said, 'Alcohol dealers -- drug dealers -- you're partly responsible for this.'" Drug dealers? 
  • The WBAP traffic gal actually said this morning, "A family truckster is broken down on  . . . . " I wonder if that was mine that I sold? 
  • A lot of people on criminal court dockets seem to have unexpected car trouble on the morning they are supposed to appear.
  • Hey, I'm happy to see Michelle Bachmann enter the GOP presidential race. I need material.
  • Pretty funny picture of the guns being recovered by the diver at Lake Bridgeport yesterday. 
  • There's still a safe out in the lake they found which is 50 yards off shore and 20 feet deep. Highway 380 will probably be shut down for a bit today so they can fish it out. 
  • DPS has been awfully quiet since its "shootout with the cartel" last week.  Turns out the whole thing was over marijuana that some guys were trying to get to the Mexican side of the Rio Grande by a raft. Edit: To the commentor who question me about the marijuana going into Mexico, use something called "Google". 
  • I kept seeing the reference to an Australian reporter telling a joke to the Dalai Lama so I finally watched it. It was pretty funny (the interviewer reminds me of Andy Bernard from The Office.)
  • Edit: Most offensive political ad in the history of ever.

The photo of the diver emerging from the lake with the flintlocks looks like a Republic of Texas SEAL in the Rio Grande.

My statement of Cuban holding the trophy in the restroom -- Who the hell was the pervert taking pictures of men peeing in a public restroom? I think I would hire a good lawyer!

On political statements -- stick with all the good stuff your Obamy is saying recently. That will keep you busy for months. What a joke he is!!

That kid's a pretty decent QB, but he needs a faster delivery on the pass, sell the fake/option better, and stop carrying the ball like a loaf of bread...

It wasn't a storm. AngrySquat just got hungry and tore everything up on her way to get a late night allsups burrito.

It is time for technology to turn off all car engines when a drunk is behind the wheel.

guy in Fort Worth allegedly got drunk at a topless club and then killed four teenagers

Topless bars at that South Freeway -I35 location have a large body count. All kinds of shootings, murders, and dancers killed by ex-boyfriends. I think it was originally called the House of Babes and who knows what it is called today although I drove by there twice this weekend.

What do you want Mark Cuban to do with it? Set it on the floor? Nature calls.

I find it reassuring to know that Mark Cuban pees standing up.

The Legal Responsibility? 35% bar/65% driver.
The actual Responsibility? 5% bar/45% driver/50% boobie!

That chick probably the one selling horse meat at One Stop. Sad a place went from best meat market to worst.

Watch the Decatur kids eyes.
He always stares where he plans to pass or run.
Overall he has potential.
He is why the Eagles will dominate district

And of course, 0% blame on the parents or guardians of the 14-year old that was out cruising at 1:30 A.M.

That sounds funny "The Eagles will dominate district."
I haven't heard that in a while!!!!

Now that must be one hell of a gun safe that can be opened in 20 feet of murky water by a scuba diver.

What's wrong Bubear? Still hurting from shoveling dirt all weekend?

If he stares at his target that much during the season, I see a lot of linebackers lightin' his a$$ up this year...

Mr. Burns is still alive too dumbass.

11:53 I thought the same thing! LOL

You know that comment had to have come from a 1st grader who is "hoping" in 11 years they can dominate.

It's sad to see that another bright conservative woman will have to be drug through the mud along with her family just like Sarah Palin. You liberal weenies are some heartless bastards. But Obammy's family is off limits.

Anonymous said...

Even Bammy's family says they're done and don't care if he's reelected. Time for the idiots to pack up and move back to their mansion and million dollar per year jobs like the rest of us average joes.

Skippy, Get your story straight. Why would anyone want to smuggle pot INTO Mexico? Dumbass...

hey wisea$$ @ 12:29

the first line is said by Abe Simpson - not about Abe Simpson (unless he's the last one!)

They saved Hitler's brain but there wasn't room in the jar for yours, huh?

alcohol is a drug, hence "drug dealers"

1:16 I feel the same way but, I have NO DOUBT they can both hold their own.

He'd be a better QB with turf!

What is the big deal with turf in Decatur?
I was confused why they held a bond election and some board members appeared to be opposed to the deal.
I voted no because several of them seemed to be opposed.

Man, that young lady has a death grip on that Miller Lite. Should have better taste in beer.

Why would a player from a football team that has a 500 record want to have a video of himself. You have to be real good to make the playoff with only 3 wins.
Story and the turf bunch needs to take a hike.

Anonymous said...

Decatur to dominate the district?
Didn't they lose 63 to 7 in the first round of the playoffs last year on a turf field?

Anonymous said...

I too was in favor of turf until one of those guys helped me see the light.

I say no to turf in Decatur.

We prefer grass!!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

6:38 and others. Grass is turf. Decatur already has a turf field.

Anybody have an over/under on the number of niglets arrested at the Mavs parade?

We slammed the turf boy last time and we do it again
