- WFAA did a story last night on the new DPS "gun boats" that I mentioned about three months ago.
- The Star-Telegram has begun to realize that the TCU "drug bust" coverage was completely overblown. For me, why the TCU administration acted like their only reference point about marijuana was Reefer Madness is puzzling. TCU deserves better. The Board of Regents needs to seriously consider some changes at the top.
- Regarding the "kidnapped" Frisco girl, I've never seen so many news reports say "she's lying" without ever saying "she's lying."
- Watched a little of The Voice last night since Christina is on it. Then I powered down when they would post "tweets" from the hosts on the screen.
- A Fort Worth lawyer received more than $700,000 in court appointed fees from one judge between 2001 and 2007? (That nugget was buried in a story that otherwise didn't make a lot of sense.) Tarrant County needs to consider a Public Defender's Office.
- Mrs. LL planted some flowers in the flower bed this fall and they are still alive. (And it might hit 80 degrees tomorrow.)
- Somebody commented yesterday about a Decatur girl who allegedly made up an abduction/assault story about fifteen years ago. I was DA at the time, and it occurred right after Scream was released. I offered her a diversion program to avoid prosecution -- didn't see any reason to mess up her life.
- I saw that in the Mav's game last night that Dirk moved in to the top 20 of all-time scorers while Jason Kidd became second all-time in steals. When the core of your team is setting "career" records, that means the core of your team is old.
- Rick Santorum says that President Obama's "theology" is "not based on the Bible" and now he insists he wasn't talking about his faith? Please. This is the same guy who wouldn't correct a lady who called the President a Muslim. And then his official spokesman compared the President's policies to "radical Islamic policies" yesterday and then said she "misspoke."
- Media News: The Dallas Morning News has hired Robert Wilonsky, the editor of the fantastic Dallas Observer blog, to manage the newspaper's "online presence." That's huge. It's the Dallas Morning News admitting they have no idea how to deal with the Internet -- something everyone else already knew about them.
- Baylor beat Texas last night which many believe might cost Texas any chance to make the NCAA Tourney. Longhorn coach Rick Barnes' days have to be numbered, right?
- The Rhome man who died after being tasered by Fort Worth police after a car chase was ruled by the Medical Examinerto have died from methamphetamine use . Yeah, a hit of methamphetamine with a taser chaser.
