- I watched Game Change on HBO this weekend -- a movie based upon a great book by the same name. I can't believe I'm saying this, but the movie was too hard on Sarah Palin.
- A few years back, Texas law was changed allowing cops to issue a citation instead of arrest someone for misdemeanor amounts of marijuana. The level of the crime didn't change, it just allowed a person to avoid having to go to jail and making bond before their court appearance. However, the law has been ignored.
- John Carter might be one of the biggest busts in the history of cinema.
- Prepared your brackets for the Liberally Lean Tournament. Current list of prizes and sponsors is here. And it looks like we've got about 150 entries -- we normally break 200 by the Thursday deadline.
- South Oak Cliff school sign. Real or fake?
- A car passed me this morning with one of those traveling cargo bins attached to its roof. It had "Taos" stickers on it. *sigh*
- One of the tulips I accidentally poisoned in the back yard fought through it and actually bloomed. Then a neighbor cat came over and ate it during the night.
- And I created two large dead spots on the front lawn when I applied too much weed killer. Neil Sperry would not be proud of me so far this year. Neither is Mrs. LL.
- I'm glad I'm not emotionally invested in the NFL because it would be weird cheering for Baylor's Robert Griffin in a Washington Redskins jersey. Over the weekend, they sold the farm to get him.
- Lots of people talking about a new BBQ place along the banks of the Trinity River off of University Drive in Fort Worth. And if I remember correctly, it doesn't have air conditioning.
- There was a Jerry Billington who received 35 years in prison in Tarrant County last week for DWI-Third or more. That name used to appear on the Wise County docket for the same offense and the age of the guy seems about the same.
- There was a report on the radio this morning that there was a police chase in Carrollton involving a "possible DWI" suspect. Little early for that.
- In the Update this morning, there was an obit for a 33 year old out of Newark with "no services planned." I'm not sure I've seen that before.
- We had a soldier go beserk. Let's get out of there.
