Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • We've got a dead body and a "who done it" in Wise County (two posts down)  and we can't get the story on any metroplex TV station? What do we need? Two bodies?
  • The Family Clothes Dryer no longer drys clothes. Ugh. But I've hated that thing from the day I bought it -- And I'm thinking of going Industrial Size this time. Suggestions?
  • The remodeling of TCU's stadium is continuing. Did I hear correctly that there aren't any lights so two September games have been moved from evenings to the day, and that majority of the crowd will be forced into the east stands which (obviously) looks back into the sun? It'll be a nice stadium when completed but for now: Beat-Ing.
  • And the death of the child in Bridgeport a couple of days ago was due to a gun accident. No foul play. Just a horrible and tragic accident. 
  • My first club experience ever: Seeing a new wave band called The Telefones in a club called Tango on Greenville Avenue in Dallas. I was pretty sure I wasn't in Wise County any more. 
  • I know you don't care about the current scandal at the University of Miami but you have to like the reason given for blowing the whistle on the school by the incarcerated ex-booster: "Straight up revenge." (And the story, investigated and broken by Yahoo! Sports has been said to be the "finest piece of online sports journalism in history.". Take a look at the story where they list the implicated players to the side with hyperlinks taking you to the allegations and supporting documentation.)
  • "The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality said Wednesday that it has levied a $212,500 fine against J-W Operating Co. of Wise County."
  • Nice moment when I woke up in the middle of the night: A quiet house, The Family Pup asleep under the sheets, the Family Cat amazingly asleep on the covers above my feet, and Mrs. LL quietly asleep as well. I tried to stay awake just to enjoy the picture. 
  • Tony Romo said that his bachelor party consisted of a no alcohol evening in a cabin in West Virginia with a bunch of guys playing Hide and Seek in the dark. He's kidding, right? (The no alcohol part seems believable  but the rest of it is down right weird.)
  • It's a little long, but if you want to read about a lawyer suing his ex-law firm this is really funny. Preview: Before he was fired, he sent an email to his bosses in the firm that said he had "a superior legal mind to most I have met." That'll get you points. 
  • Little Miss Sunshine is growing up.
  • Man, I should have made the Wise-County-Teachers-Get-Trained-On-Abuse-By-Watching-Shocking-Video a post all its own. (Tons of comments about it under yesterday's Random Thoughts.)

Did you read the Star-Telegram's article about the Rangers and the statue? It quoted the wife about this being an honor to families and love, not a tragedy. She was contacted prior to the announcement. Nolan Ryan is doing this for the same reason, not to "idolize" anyone, just a tribute to a loving father. Ryan is not a grandstander, , just a good guy. No, I'm not naive, I just believe there are some good people around.

Does it seem like the internet in Decatur is slow this week? Or is just the Messenger that takes so long.

The Telefones still play occasional reunion gigs here in Dallas....and their two albums go for $50-$100 apiece now.

I'm no fan of SMU, but they received the NCAA "death penalty" in football for lesser illegal and unethical behavior.

I think Miami U. should not get special treatment and be dealt with just as harshly (if not more so) than SMU.

As for TCU, there's a great brand new stadium just up I35W in Denton which could be rented out - GO MEAN GREEN!

Oh - is that Coach Gary Patterson on the front page?

Tony Romo in an isolated West Virginia cabin with a bunch of dudes? Why do I have visions of Ned Beatty squealing like a pig?

And in regards to the pastoral late night family scene: Good thing you woke up when you did. Family Cat was probably going to attack as you all deeply slumbered. You prevented a bloodbath.

Did the 12 yr. old have any training on the reality of guns?

I am firm believer in teaching children, the younger the better, all aspects of the reality guns.

For one just because Romo was in WV doesnt mean there were banjos playing and a pig squealing. You both are the same idiots that think West Virginia is still part of Virginia, and ask WVians how close they live to VA beach. Just because you make an arrogant comment about people from WV. Doesnt mean I will say you are a tool, but only tools, and homosexuals would come to mind when your comment about WV is a pig and banjos. Typical arrogant DBAG who has never been to WV.
