- Suddenly there's a copy of The Hunger Games in the house. It was being read when I went to bed last night and as I walked out the door this morning.
- Craziness in Irving last night. A couple run off the road and vehicle disabled off of Loop 12. A friend comes to pick them up and parks on the other side of the the road. As the couple runs across the highway, the female ex-passenger is struck by a car. The guy then gets in the vehicle that had stopped and they take off. She's alive. For now.
- Our freezer is now acting up. First the hot water heater, now this.
- Apparently Tim Tebow had the choice of either going back home to Jacksonville or going to the New York Jets. He chose New York. I bet one day he will tell us that he felt "called" to the epicenter of America. And I bet he does.
- Kay Bailey Hutchison defended Planned Parenthood yesterday. I bet she wouldn't have had the guts to to do that if she were running for re-election.
- No matter where you were in North Texas yesterday evening, that was a fantastic sunset.
- Our new flowerbed is beautiful but for the two grassy areas in front of it that I destroyed with weed killer. I'm really mad at myself about that.
- Finished my book, Manhunt. The co-conspirators of John Wilkes Booth were tried by a military court instead of a civil federal court. And they learned of their death sentences less than 24 hours before it was carried out.
- There was one photographer at the executions with his most famous shot of it here. This one, since it involves a woman, is chilling.
- Michelle Obama strikes the Heisman pose.
- I wonder why Nancy Grace won't take up the Trayvon Martin case as her cause? Or do I even have to wonder at all?
- The City of Bridgeport's phone tree is hosted by a gal with a British accent?
- I will never visit sweetjack.com because of the ad campaign which can only be described as carpet bombing. (If you know what I'm talking about, you will absolutely agree.)
- Had a great debate yesterday at the courthouse as to what the public's attitude is about the guy who realizes he is too intoxicated to drive, pulls over to the shoulder and falls asleep with the car running and in park, and later found by a cop. Angry at him for driving in the first place or grateful he pulled over?
- Another courthouse question: Currently, what is the typical age of a person who truly does not know what a "carbon copy" means?
- Running for President would be a beating.
