- I get asked daily in the house if I have "Temple Run" on my phone. I'm guessing it's the next "Angry Birds" (which I've also never played.)
- Conservative Freak Out #1: "Bill Maher donated $1 million to Obama's Super Pac. Since he's said bad words about conservative women, why doesn't Obama send that money back?" Answer: Because it's a Super Pac which means the President has no control of it. (And I thought Republican's loved the big money Super Pacs?)
- Conservative Freak Out #2: "A million dollar lottery winner still gets food stamps!!" Answer: It's legal (at least that's what Fox News told me last night). And when we learned Mitt Romney only paid about 14% in income taxes, the Republican mantra was "How can you fault him for simply following the tax laws to his advantage?"
- Dennis Miller was funny one time, right?
- A potential LSU football player is a "Hey, Now."
- I promise you, the Tarrant County prosecutor who signed the dismissal better have had a great reason to do so or he/she is gone. And I wonder if the new PR girl in the office will do a press release about that story?
- We're going big time!: Chris Miller's Farmer's Insurance Agency in Bridgeport has pledged to donate a $100 Visa Gift Card for the winner of the Third Annual Liberally Lean NCAA Tourney. Now we're talking. Hey, any of you other merchants who want a month of advertising on the most trusted blog in the Southwest Proper, throw some money in the pot as well. I'll mention you when ever I mention the Tourney. Maybe we can have multiple prizes.
- Jessica Simpson neekid and pregnant on the cover of a magazine.
- Sean Hannity was hyping an "Obama College Tape" all day yesterday. It turned out to be a big bag of nothing. If anything, it showed the President as a law student taking a leadership position.
- Motorcycle death! Well, not quite. But a trooper did decide to shoot a motorcyclist yesterday in Cooke County. I hope that was necessary.
- Mrs. LL was at some event at Byron Nelson High School last week ("It's huge!!!"). So I did a double take when I read a 15 year old on that school's softball field was Careflighted out of there yesterday after being struck in the head by a bat. (Facebook link.)
- DPS issued a warning for those on Spring Break not to travel to Mexico. I almost understand if DPS issued a warning about the border, but what business do they have in issuing a warning about an entire country. They ain't the State Department.
- Kony. (You'll learn the name. All I know is that a 30 minute video exploded on the Internet yesterday which may or may not be accurate.)
- I watched a documentary once about the Golden Gate Bridge and how it is "popular" for suicides. Last year, the bridge set a record with 37 such deaths.
- The only way I'd sign Peyton Manning is if he'd play for the league minimum salary. I don't trust that neck at all. (But isn't this amazing: The release of Manning by the Colts is not on the front page of the Indianapolis paper today.)
- Fox 4's "Deal or Dud" guy did a segment on Secondipity last night. That was a100% paid commercial disguised as as news. No question about it. (His giving a "promo code" at the end of segment was the clincher.) Keep your eyes open for these tricks. It's happening more and more.
- Daryl "Moose" Johnston will (for some crazy reason) endorse Craig James for the U.S. Senate. Upon hearing the news, James said, "When people see the two of us walking around, they’re going to see two people who’ve been successful in life." (I predict C.J. Wilson will be next to endorse.)
