- If you were eastbound on 114 at the Texas Motor Speedway you had a headache this morning. An overturned tanker truck had you rerouted south on I-35. Beating.
- The heck with Yu, the Rangers fifth starter, Neftali Feliz, was fantastic last night. Of all the pitchers, I figured he had the most potential for a meltdown.
- I'm kind of surprised the University of Arkansas fired its head coach over his "inappropriate relationship" and/or "inappropriate hire" with an engaged 25 year old. But if you followed the story, you'll laugh at this picture of him leaving town.
- Mark Cuban at least thinks he's always the smartest man in the room. Lamar Odom (who like his wife is being paid for doing nothing) proves he's not.
- Odd prediction for former WBAP host Mark Davis: I bet he gets in the religion business. Over the last couple of years, he's talked about his faith more and more. And, oddly, he and Glenn Beck have been spending more and more time with ex-televangelist James Robison.
- Is Fredrick's Of Hollywood still around?
- I hope the 17 Wise County volunteer fire departments who will each receive an equal share of the
$196,374.99 recently raised at a fundraiser have a good checks and balances accounting system.
- A owner of an Arlington strip club puts out a hit on the Mayor of Arlington and a lawyer and it becomes a federal crime? What happened to the could old days when murder-for-hire was always in good ol' state courts?
- If you could go to Vegas and bet on Romney or Obama to win the November election, would you really put any significant money on Romney?
- I was able to impress the Family Unit last night by being able to name the new Justin Bieber song at the dinner table last night. And by "impress", I mean "horrify."
- A van carrying 19 illegal immigrants crashed last night in South Texas killing nine of them.
- In 1987, eighteen illegal immigrants suffocated to death in a Texas railroad boxcar as they were being smuggled into Texas. That prompted KLIF's David Gold to say they "got what they deserved" which got him reprimanded but not fired. I would hope he would be fired in 2012.
- The Trayvon Martin case turned bizarre yesterday when the former attorneys of shooter George Zimmerman went all Gloria Allred on us and had a press conference they had no business of giving. But they did provide a couple of shockers: They don't know where Zimmerman is, he had met with the special prosecutor against their advice, and he had met with Sean Hannity as well.
- The Messenger will have a feature this weekend on Thomas Aaberg, Wise County attorney who advises the Commissioners' Court, who will run the Boston Marathon on Monday.
- Edit: On the Liberally Lean Pick 'Em. Winners 1-4 have been identified and chosen their prize. I'll get to #5 and #6 today. I used the Yahoo! tie breaker system of "closest score" for the final game.
