- Sen. Wendy Davis is milking that "firebombing" for all it is worth. And to initially invoke the name of Gabby Giffords right after it happened was borderline shameful.
- If we could go back in time and give Davis the chance to stop the homeless guy from burning her office door, there is no way in the world she would (if she were honest about it.) She can't buy this much publicity.
- Finally, the national media went nuts with the story with some even saying in headlines: "Office of Planned Parenthood Supporter Firebombed." Hey, this wasn't an Eric Rudolph abortion clinic bombing.
- But if we learned anything from this story, it is this: Wendy Davis is kind of hot.
- RG3 had his "pro day" yesterday at Baylor and ESPN showed up to broadcast it live. Live??!! But I have to admit, there has to be no more useless stat in the world than his completion rate in drills when there is no defense on the field.
- Does NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell really have that much power? He cost Sean Payton a year's salary of $7.5 million, and we are supposed to believe he made that decision independent of the 32 NFL owners?
- Mrs. LL, who is doing softball coaching this year, is stressing now that Spring Break and rain has killed almost all of the team's practices.
- I used an ATM in a seedy convenience store in the metroplex last Saturday. After pressing "no receipt", I got my money. After I then stepped to the side, the guy next in line awkwardly called me back over. On the "Confirm Transaction" screen (which I had never seen in my life) was my transaction details including my balance (which I had not asked to see.)
- Remember that line from The Jerk when
Nathan* Navin R. Johnson said, "Yeah, you flash a wad a cash like this around here and some people will kill you for it." *Edit: How I continue to make that mistake is disturbing.
- Based upon Justice Scalia's dissent yesterday, he doesn't think the constitution requires a defendant's lawyer to communicate to him any plea bargain offers. Incredible.
- Fox News has discovered Paul Harvey's 1965 "If I Were The Devil" broadcast and proclaims it has come to fruition.
- 60 Minutes will do a segment this Sunday on alleged Texas prosecutorial misconduct.
- The "Stand Your Ground Law" (or the "Mobile Castle Doctrine") has nothing to do with the Trayvon Martin case. The lack of a duty to retreat only comes into play once the use of deadly self defense is justified. And that's the whole issue in the Martin case: Was deadly self defense justified in the first place?
- I got stopped for the "Man On The Street" question by the Messenger yesterday. They promised they wouldn't make me look like an idiot (although I really didn't have an opinion on standardized school testing).
- Have you seen the Apache helicopter crash in Afghanistan? Pilot hot dogging?
- WBAP's Hal Jay got Yu Darvish and Jeremy Lin confused this morning.
