Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts




  • Fort Worth PD went a while without having one of its own arrested for DWI but that ended over the weekend. Throw in a little firearm play as well and they may be trying to ratchet it up.
  • I'm struggling with a cold but it's the kind that Advil Cold and Sinus can keep at bay. I can feel the second that that stuff wears off. 
  • You've got to be a huge tech fan to know who Leo Laporte is, but a technical malfunction in October on one of his webcasts revealed an affair that Gawker finally outed last week.
  • I'm not sure where I read it, but I subscribe to The Love Bank theory (with units both being deposited and withdrawn) when it comes to a relationship. 
  • I watched the Hot Tub Time Machine over the weekend. Made me laugh more than I expected (but I wasn't expecting much.)
  • The biography of Steve Jobs should be the bestseller of 2011 if the three new copies of it I saw at one gathering on Christmas is any indication. 
  • Katy Perry in a Christmas bikini. Hey, now. 
  • WBAP newsman Brian Estridge referred to President Obama as "Barry" this morning while reporting on his Hawaiian vacation. Man, at least hide your political disgust. 
  • Whenever I see someone make a video call over a cell phone I think of The Jetsons. Then I think if technology is like that now, what's it going to be in 50 years? Hologram calls?
  • That horrific Christmas day massacre in Grapevine is being referred to as "the worst murder in the city's history." Duh. That mass killing matches even the Dallas record of six who were shot during the Nightclub Murders of 1984. I wonder what the Texas record is?
  • Watched an old episode of Six Feet Under yesterday and was surprised to see Pam from The Office have a bit role. 
  • NFL notes: (1) Here's more proof positive that Dez Bryant is as dumb as a box of rocks; (2) Jerry Jones got criticized for confronting Jason Garrett in the first quarter of the Eagles game, but if Garrett was goofy enough to want to send Romo back in the game, someone needed to do that; (3) Jerry yesterday on The Ticket: "That was Jason's decision but he didn't need to be making it by himself" -- that's some unintentional comedy; (4) How would you like to have spent all that money for tickets to that Christmas Eve Cowboy game only to learn it was meaningless because of the Giants' win?; (5) No way Dallas wins this weekend; and (6) Current color commentary guy Jon Gruden spares me to death. 
  • Skeptic in me: Want to have a merry Christmas? Fake a burglary, call the cops, call the media, put a crying kid on camera, and then wait for the sympathy replacement gifts to start rolling in. (Start watching for it on local news: It's a recurring theme.)

One of my relatives was an officer working the Grapevine scene on Christmas Day. I know its the profession she chose, but I think Christmas now has taken on a different perspective for her.

That skeptic thought ran through my mind too Barry. Can't trust anybody anymore...that is a shame.

I think the word is "cynic", not "skeptic"...
But hey, it IS easier than insurance fraud, so you're probably right.

Dallas will win because they aren't supposed to. Watch.

J Jones is the only individual that prompts me to pray for ill will toward someone. Wonder tho if Stevie will be any better?

How is it political disgust to call the President "Barry"? Isn't that the name he chose to use himself while in college? If familiarity is disgust, what about all the folks who called George W. Bush by the name "W"?

Maybe the boy genius from the ivy league who is calling the plays isn't everything we thought he was going to be either.

I have no idea who Katy Perry is but I may have to start paying attention.

Fort Hood Shooting had 13 dead, 29 wounded.
UT Tower had 16 dead, 32 wounded.

Barry, I'm asking you here and now: If Dallas wins, will you admit you were wrong? Because if the Giants win, then the "super-Cowboy-Buzzkill" that you are will force you to scream it from the rooftops going "See?! I told you".

Drove to CompUSA in Dallas once to see Leo Laporte and John C. Dvorak at a personal appearance. Still have the autographed mouse pad.

I know it is petty of me, but I do derive a certain measure of pleasure when a tech guru like Laporte can still screw the pooch when working with 0s and 1s. And I also thought he would have hit on Sarah Lane in the TechTV days. Mighty fine lady, mighty fine.

or George W being called Bushie.

Sounds like it is ok to knock repubs but not dems. Oh wait, that is the media's tag line.
