Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts


  • Whatever happened to Ted Turner?
  • I'm sure he will, but ESPN Chris Mortensen has twice reported that Baylor's Robert Griffin III will enter the NFL draft only to have Griffin say he has not made a decision. (Mortensen must really want to be first with the news.)
  • That dump the Osama Bin Landin lived and died in was "built last year" per Fox 4 this morning as they reported Pakistan is going to tear it down to prevent it from becoming a shrine.  They really are different in the Middle East. Over here we would give it a corporate sponsorship, sell tickets, and turn it into a War On Terror Graceland. 
  • There were two guys sitting amongst the Mavericks on the bench last night just kicking back and drinking beer. Really.
  • I forgot my belt. I don't remember every forgetting to put a belt on before.
  • Pic of A-Rod's new girlfriend. I think her stomach looks like mine. 
  • Oklahoma voters, in a matter that had to be an absolute emergency, approved a state constitutional amendment in 2010 barring Oklahoma state courts from "using Sharia Law" meaning  "Sharia Law is Islamic Law ... the Koran and the teachings of Mohammed." A federal court struck it down yesterday. I don't know if the court relied upon the Free Speech clause, the Separation of Powers clause, or the You People Should Have Other Things To Worry About clause.
  • The rest of the GOP field has turned into a spread-the-wealth choir as they attack Mitt Romney's business record. Rick Perry called him a "vulture capitalist." Up is down. Down is up. 
  • James Carville called Perry the worst presidential campaigner in the history of the United States. That may be true. He started on top, had a war chest of money, and the circumstances couldn't be more perfect for everything to fall into place for him. Instead he drove his campaign right into the wall on turn one. 
  • That 18 year old gal from Oklahoma who shot and killed one of the two very alleged burglars is now facing the spotlight concerning allegations she knew the guy she shot and that he might even be the father of her new baby (instead of the 58 year old guy she had been married to for about a month before he died of lung cancer.*)   [*Insert Ticket drop of "Off.']
  • But one thing that caught my eye about that story: The other "burglar" has been charged with murder in connection with his accomplice's death. Say what? Now that's creative prosecution. 
  • I did an impromptu "Flying Super Dog" routine with The Family Pup last night ("I'm Super Dog here to fight Cat Violence wherever it happens in this house!!") only to find out I was secretly videotaped. There should be some kind of immunity. 
  • The Dallas Cowboys fire secondary coach Dave Campo. Why? It's his fault that secondary doesn't have the athletic ability to cover even me?
  • College football: For those who thought Oklahoma State should have been in the title game instead of Alabama: What if Oregon had not lost to USC giving them one loss for the season (27-40 to LSU in the first game of the year.)  In that scenario, which one loss team should have played LSU in the championship game: Alabama, Oklahoma State or Oregon. Doesn't Oklahoma State seem to be the clear third choice?
  • One thing I want to know about the tour bus accident in Rhome yesterday simply out of curiosity: The bus was going from where to where? 
  • A Fort Worth whistleblower suit was settled yesterday for $145,000. I wonder why it was filed in Wise County? (But I know the lawyer is a Blog fan so I bet we'll find out.)
  • The Update generates revenue for the Messenger of around $150,000 a year

People keep wanting to put Okie State in the Title game, but they need to compare the losses. Alabama's one loss was to the top-ranked LSU. Okie State's one loss was to an un-ranked Iowa State.

If the scenario had happened as you discussed, then it would have been between Alabama and Oregon. Would have come out to whomever was ranked higher, since both teams' one loss was to LSU.

Right: not so much. Now, if you wanted to cast a spell or operate a certain internet business, then yeah. Maybe combine the two - Hex and, let's see...what rhymes with hex?

There were questions from the start about whether the gal knew the guy trying to break in. I don't think it matters that he knew/had sex with/took half-credit for the baby with her.
If she knows him, and knows he's the one outside, she's still justified because he's armed and trying to break in. If he didn't mean any harm, why didn't he just knock on the door and say "Hey, it's yer baby daddy. Let's talk."

Oregon, OSU, or Stanford would have been more entertaining to watch.

Please please please bring playoffs to the BCS.

I like the term used by someone yesterday on the blog... "incestous conference scheduling" of the SEC. We get that the SEC is good. But waiting 40 days to see a boring rematch of an earlier boring game won't cut it.

Thought same about Reps. taking on Romney and his business dealings, figure its normal Rep. behavior so why are they complaining. Talk about phoney.

Daddy crashed and burned in quick fashion, but that's because debating is his biggest weakness. One on one, he's a smooth talker. Hell, he charmed the pants off my momma in Nuevo Laredo and didn't know a lick of Spanish.

That said, Jimmy Carville (a political genius) ain't got no right to insult daddy like that. I'll kick his you know what's if he comes around here, even though he is correct in his assessment.

Ted's buffalo riding antics can be found on Conan's show. Ted is played by former SNL cast member Will Forte

Put on your snow tires -- for once I don't disagree with James Carville. Either Perry's team didn't explain to him how a Presidential campaign works, or he ignored their advice.

South Carolina and Florida should be interesting.

Jason filed it in Wise County because he is a smart lawyer. He knew he would get a fair shake there. Nice job, Jason.

Romney's"big" win in home-state territory should be taken in perspective. He got about 3% more than his second place finish in 2008. Still some 65% of Republicans voted against him. Yes, South Carolina will be more instructive. To me, Romney is still a plastic, big business 1%er, northeast Rino. The most qualified Repubs are still not running.

It don't matter how boring you feel the game was. It was between the best two teams period. SEC is the best conference in college football. The SEC plays ball control and defense, I understand why all you people in this area want to see a high scorning game, b/c your big 12 has no D to stop those offenses. I'll tell you 100% that Alabama could have and would have beat any other team in the country. Maybe not by a shut out, but the end result would have been the same. As far as Oregon, well they would have no claim b/c how much did they lose to LSU by? Simple math people...

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I agree with Carville.

Perry would be the nominee if his campaign team had been even C+ material.

I'd say they fumbled the ball, but that doesn't come close to the level of screw-up...

Jerry Jones needs to kiss and make up with Jimmy Johnson, talk him into putting his clothes back on, buy him a few cases of Crown Royal and get out of his way. Put the train back on the track, so to speak.

BCS should never have a rematch in the champoinship game. Alabama/LSU may have been the two best teams in the country but we don't know because they (all bigtime BCS schools) don't play enough power schools from other power confrences to truly tell. You can say Alabama would beat anyone but they said the same thing about LSU. You will never know until they play the game. BCS sucks and every game doesn't matter BG because three teams had one loss and any of the three had a good arguement as to why they should be in the BCS game. Alabama had the weakest arguement as LSU had already proven they were the better team.

Perry's not smart enough to run a presidential campaign. And I am a Republican. I said early on after he announced that if you thought George Bush was unintelligent, just wait til Perry hits the stage. Bingo!

Your lawyer buddy had a good line about the city of FW settling. They said it was all about stopping the case for nuisance value (145 grand seems a little high to me for that explanation) but his "they apologized to my client 145,000 times" was priceless.

Hello,The reason we filed the whistle blower case is cuz if we get somebody a lot of money then we get a lot of money from them or somethin.

Perry destroyed his chances of winning the GOP Presidential primary during his first debate when he confirmed his support for in-state tuition for illegal aliens which is opposed by 81% of all Americans. After that date he went south in the polls. I think that was on Sept. 23.

Negative on Veronica Rayne. She doesn't have that kind of ink.

Anonymous said...

I'm not an SEC guy, in fact I'm an old Big 8 guy. That said, the third best team in the SEC West had two mutual opponents this season with Okie State in TXAM and K-State and beat them both more handily than Okie St. did.

I know that kind of thing doesn't mean much, but you could actually make a case that two-loss Arkie with losses to Alabama and LSU was a better season than 1-loss to Iowa State.

Bacon's on point.

"Martin's accomplice, 29-year-old Dustin Stewart, turned himself in to authorities last week and was charged with first-degree murder in relation to his friend's death.

He said Martin initially went to McKinley's house on the day of her husband's funeral, claiming to be a friendly neighbor, but left when he saw that she had company. They then returned on New Year's Eve to burglarize the residence so Martin could feed his addiction to prescription medication.


When the accomplice admits that it was a straight-up Burglary Of A Habitation, that's a pretty good clue that the resident was doing the right thing. Felony murder charges are now "creative presecution"? Man, when you left the DA's office, you never looked back, did you, Barry?

Hey LL,

Thanks for the shout out. The Legislature provided that Whistleblower cases can be filed in adjoining counties to avoid taxpayers ruling against whistleblowers from their county because they worry about the judgment being paid out of THEIR tax dollars. We file most whistleblower cases in Wise County because we can get a quick trial and we would rather visit Decatur than Denton or Weatherford or . . .. Plus, my family ran away to runaway bay when I was a kid in the 80s so I've always liked Wise County.
