- 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.
