Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts


  • By the time you read this, I'll be in Austin. I left this morning. That means I've been up a looooong time.
  • It all so means I've been in a car with two prosecutors. We battle, but we're friends. (But I brought earphones as a backup.) They talked me into not going down early and spending the night -- I'll tell you how this works out. 
  • It's an appellate argument before the nine judge Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. I've done it once before and, honestly, it's not the funnest thing in the world to do.
  • Our case is a DWI case -- important to my client -- but a misdemeanor. The case being argued before us deals with the youngest person ever placed on Death Row in Texas (for a triple axe murder in 1991). It also appears it might have been prosecuted by a corrupt DA.
  • Alabama's National Championship trophy (a Waterford crystal replica of a football valued at $30,000) was shattered two days ago. Great idea: Sell the broken glass to fans. They'd make a fortune.
  • Ted Nugent continues to be irresponsible and now the Secret Service is looking at him (once they get through with Columbian hookers.)
  • The Cowboys 2012 schedule was released -- 6 of the first 9 are on the road. Washington (with RG3 presumably at quarterback) will be the Thanksgiving game.
  • I may be one of five people that saw the Texas debate for U.S. Senator sponsored by Belo on Friday night. Let me recap: The moderators were a train wreck, Craig James was incredibly polished (as he should be), Ted Cruz is like a rabid dog (a small one), Tom Leppert still looks like your crazy uncle, and David Dewhurst acts like he has inherited the throne and doesn't understand why no one else doesn't realize it.
  • At UTA, says WFAA, "There is a man who is slapping a woman on the buttocks and then running off." I think the "running off" aspect is what makes it a funny visual.
  • Jamie Moyer first pitched for the Texas Rangers in 1989. He's still active and got a win last night at the age of 49.
  • Weird, weird year for Baylor sports: Their baseball team has won twenty games in a row and ranked sixth in the nation.

How exciting to see and hear the case before yours! Just read the young man's plea of innocence. If he is telling the truth I hope he is exonerated soon.

Uncle Ted would be doing us all a favor

Ted Nugent is "irresponsible?" Compared to whom?

Anonymous said...

I asked Leppert if he ever took money under the table to play football for anybody. I guess its hard to polish off one's history..

Just to expand on my comment from yesterday, and the response that it drew:
The blog host commenting on a candidate's campaign is news. Campaigning for office, of itself, isn't news - it's campaigning, and doing it on this blog is getting it for free.
I'm sure the citizens of Rhome have lots of civic pride and all, but building a truck stop doesn't really constitute growth. You're merely, um, servicing the folks passing through your community. To the rest of the world - and that includes most of Wise County - Rhome is just that dog's hind leg you have to navigate while driving on 114.

Leave uncle Ted alone. There will
be scores of us who disagree with
the President's policies dead or in
jail if those policies were ever
completely enacted. It is a free
country still, for a while longer
anyway.

David Dewhurst acts like he has inherited the throne and doesn't understand why no one else doesn't realize it.

Your remark makes sense to other practiced liars (criminal defense attorneys) I suppose.

The good people of Texas realize that Dewhurst is the right person for the job.

Sure, investigate Ted Nugent but ignore Calypso Louey Farrakhan and The New and Improved Black Panthers. Kind of tells you something about Eric Holder doesn't it?

Sounds like triple fake got ripped off by a loves hooker in Rhome!

Did Leppert look at Craig James when you asked him that question?

Anonymous said...

Did Def Leppard look at Rick James when you asked him that question 12:12 ?

@ 12:00 -
nice attempt at a counterattack
I've never stopped there, and if my tie-rod stiffens up enough to need a truck stop lube job, that place would be near the bottom of the list.
I'm only depending on some of the comments made on this blog about the reputation/activity there. Besides, that was the only part of my post that was meant to be taken lightly

"No hooker gets away with doing that to me, not even after she's done a bunch of other stuff to me first!"

Triple Fake Craig James

The Black Panthers can put out a hit on Zimmerman but Ted cannot make jokes about Adoph Obama.

Fr. O'Malley said...

Making veiled threats on the life of anyone is a sin. Much like wishing death to a person. Mr. Nugent is simply wrong in his words and actions, as are others who make similar remarks about anyone.

Anonymous said...

O'Malley, What a profound statement. Which begs the question, why aren't Louey and his black thugs being investigated?

Anonymous said...

If RG3 was wearing a hoodie, he would look just like Obammy's son.

I didn't ask the question, the sports idiot @ 8:49 did.

But to address your question directly, no Def Leppard did not look directly at Rick James(which makes no sense, btw), but he drummer did offer a high five with his nub arm.

What is with the ad that just showed up on tv about Cruz, the business lawsuit, and Chinese scofflaws? Man, sounds juicy if even a little true.

The sports idiot points out that one candidate was preparing for a career in politics by taking bribes in college..

325 was just trying to help the wordT and 359 who seem to be hard of reading.

Anyone that wants to understand what Ted Nugent said can. He wasn't being literal. I agree - it is time to chop off the heads of those currently in power!

Why don't you just make your own insinuated threat like your hero? Grow a pair! Be interesting to see if the Secret Service would be interested in checking you out. That is, when they are though partying with the girls. And, as a bonus, Wordkyle would love you even more.

I have a feeling we will hear more about this incredible Baylor athletic year by way of NCAA investigations.....
