Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • Fox 4 sent a reporter this morning to Decatur to cover "Arctic  (Even-Though-There-Are-Above-Freezing-Temperatures) Blast 2012."
  • I was beginning to think the missing Fort Worth girl who was abducted by her mother last week wasn't going to be found. Normally those cases are solved within hours. But wasn't the Amber Alert cancelled in New Mexico where she was located?
  • A person was found dead by the Lincoln Memorial over the weekend which made me think of mystery, intrigue and the Pelican Brief. But it sounds like a suicide.
  • Grammys: Taylor Swift is beginning to have some Garth Brook's I-can't-believe-you-like-me face.
  • Never won a Grammy:  Led Zeppelin, Beach Boys, The Who, Jim Hendrix, The Kinks, Bob Marley, Grateful Dead, Queen, and Chuck Berry. The Starland Vocal Band ("Afternoon Delight") has one. 
  • Adele is one hot, plump gal, but I'm stunned she's only 23. And when she talks she sounds like she belongs in a Monty Python skit. (Stolen observations from the radio this morning.)
  • Most people believe that Kate Upton will be on the cover of Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue today. I'm stunned she's only 19. 
  • I made Mrs. LL watch the drug scene with the fire cracker popping Chinese guy from Boogie Nights. I think I saw a question mark form over her head.
  • Whitney Houston in a bikini in 1996.
  • Now it's picking up: Another Dallas police car was crashed into last night. That's the second one in a week. 
  • Sports question on the radio this morning: Was Tony Romo getting to play in a final foursome with Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson at Pebble Beach yesterday the greatest sports thrill of his life? I bet it was. 
  • Oddest name for Paul McCartney's new album: "Kisses On The Bottom."
  • Remember that crazy Porsche crash that killed the lawyer and two twenty-somethings near Las Colinas? I didn't know there was a video of them leaving the strip club before the crash. She looked wobbly.
