Random Friday Morning Thoughts



  • A homeless man steals food from the Marriott in Southlake and breaks into a car. Sitting in jail, to poor to make bond, he is found hanged to death. Now police think the accused capital murderer of a pastor may have killed him.
  • If you are the Harris County (Houston) DA, why have a trial in that cop-beating-black-kid case right before an election? There are a million ways a prosecutor can dodge a trial (dismiss the case and refile it, for example). Now the predominately Democratic Harris County electorate is fired up about turning the DA out.
  • Funny moment in my trial yesterday. Right in the middle of jury selection, a guy just walks in and wanders around. He finally looks up and asks, "Is this the courtroom?"
  • Funny moment #2 after the prosecutor ask the jury panel if they had ever had a bad or good experience with police: A lady, with a thick British accent, said, "I was stopped once by not one but by two policemen and they were both very good looking. [Laughter.] You asked if I had a good experience with police and that was a very good experience." Prosecutor: "OK, anyone else been stopped by a couple of Chippendale dancers?"
  • Mrs, LL and I played catch in the back yard last night. That was fun until she took over my backstop/pitchback.
  • I don't know exactly what happened between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin, but the news of Zimmerman's injuries yesterday makes the prosecution's case a lost cause.  It's all about reasonable doubt.
  • I think Fox 4 spent 15 minutes with the SMU women's rowing team last night about a viral video they made that doesn't look interesting enough to watch. 
  • It's official: Decatur Middle School will receive 750 iPads for students and 50 for teachers. Are there 750 students in the middle school?
  • I received a spam comment from this law firm calling themselves "DWI Sharks". If they are resorting to spam, I'll call them a bunch of spares. But the women are hot. 
  • A donation was made to Baylor yesterday to build a bridge across the Brazos to connect the campus to the new football stadium. The undisclosed amount came from Walter Umphrey who was part of the  “Tobacco Five” lawyers who shared a $3.3 billion fee from the tobacco companies when the State of Texas sued them, using private lawyers, over a decade ago. What a scam. What an embarrassment. (Former Texas AG Dan Morales even ended up in prison for falsifying documents in an attempt to get a lawyer buddy part of that fee. )
  • Can you ever quote any parts of the Old Testament since Christ brought forth a new covenant? (It does have some rather bizarre rules. Can you ignore those without ignoring all of it?)
  • A faithful reader who attends college out of state posted this pic this morning on Twitter saying it was outside her window and asking "What is this?" It looks like a 25 pound squirrel.
  • Skinny, "Hey, now."
  • Why spend so much to capture a U.S. Senate seat? A vacancy hardly ever occurs and once you are elected, you'll never be defeated.

Old Testament states one can own slaves from neighboring countries. This means we can own a Canadian.

I focus on the Jesus part of the Bible. And that means not paying as much attention to the pronouncements of wannabes like Paul. More Jesus, less wannabes?

Is it common practice for a law firm to feature a paralegal so prominently in their ads? She must be a whiz of a support staffer.

The Martin case will ultimatley be a civil harmful death thing because who can argue all of this would not have happened had Z not profiled and not gotten out of his car!

Ya....lot's of Old Testament stuff gets in the way...like...the 10 Commandments for example.

I think it's ironic that the government won't allow the Commandments to be posted in government buildings, but, if you violate a commandment, you could find yourself in court.

Your reasons for becoming a Senator apply to all federal government positions. As Shirley Sherrod said: "You've heard a lot about layoffs. Have you heard of anybody in the federal government losing their job?"

Uh, excuse me, Barry... The baseball viral video of Harvard baseball team (enter "Harvard" as youtube search) is super hot, and the SMU girls' version of the same thing involves LEGS. Hello, Bacon! Hello, Barry!! You have to at least watch. I enjoy nothing more than a very smart athlete, and anyone who goes to Harvard qualifies. Same with SMU, I guess, but a lil' different twist on the concept ;)

The whole Bible Old and New Testament is the inspired word of God ( God Breathed) it is all important! The old Testament Law is our schoolmaster, Jesus came to fulfill the Law, to be a sinless sacrafice for us as sinners so that we through Him will have eternal life by trusting in Him. The Bible is the living word of God if you read it, it will change your life.

I will be so glad when the Senate race is over! Getting a robo call last night just when they are announcing who will be in the final will not get my vote!!!! If it has a 512 area code, I just hang up then they leave a message on my recorder that I have to delete!

God did not wright the Bible. Those "rules" were meant for those times. If you truly believe in God you just follow what is right or wrong..the Bible is only a source of comfort to hear versions of what God conveyed to his followers...oh so many years ago.

Yes, I would believe there are 750 students in the Middle School. My child is in the 6th grade and there are 250 of them.

It is a ground hog also known as a "whistle pig".

I know that because I hit one in North Carolina one time and it felt like I hit a tree stump!. I did not know what kind of creature it was took a picture with my phone. When I showed it to a local he said "You hit a Whistle Pig."

Skinney Hey Now. Falls well within the Met Life ideal weight tables. I guess if you are not fat like the average American then you can not be normal/ideal weight but have to be called skinney.

I think the ground hog's correct name is a marmot.

We as Catholics (and to some extent Protestants) are children of the New Covenant, and so must abide by the teaching of Jesus, unlike the Jews who are children of the old covenant and wish to remain so. In other words, only they (the Jews) are required to follow the Old Covenant. We should only use the Old Testament as guide where it is not superseded by the teachings of the New.

Yeah, that paralegal has a shot at a supporting role in a David E. Kelly legal drama. But, isn't it redundant for lawyers to label themselves sharks (or snakes, or anything predatory)?

SMU has a women's rowing team?! Have they heard about that gator that was found in Fort Worth? Better post a lookout while paddling up the West Fork, ladies!
And the video really was a time-waster. Nice drumsticks, but that can't be good for the van's headliner

Re: yesterday's post about minority/majority births -
somebody commented about how your average French student can speak German, Spanish, and English. Well duh! They're not sure who they'll be surrendering to next...it's called covering all your bases!
That's why all of our borders should have signs that say "Spanglish spoken aqui - learn it, por favor!"

Another poor white murdered by a black ape. Good thing the S-T started questioning this, or we would never had heard about it. This is why we need to bring back segregation. These racist murders will not stop until they do.


Filthy mudering apes.

"I don't know exactly what happened between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin" - You could also consider that the autopsy on Martin showed that he had damaged knuckles from hitting something. That could be from hitting Zimmerman's eyes, nose, and head. Oh, he was also high on marijuana when he died.

9:02 I assume by your post that God had good reason to keep us from eating bacon and that you make sure the women of your household leave during menstruation.

Father O'Malley, your interpretation seems to be a convenient pretext for ignoring those parts of the Old Testament that you want to ignore and keeping those parts that you want to keep. "Superseded" can be construed narrowly or can be the size of an ocean, depending on your bias.

8:40, I tend to agree. "Love thy neighbor" seems to trump a lot of the silly and petty stances of many modern churches that spew hate.

Yeah, it's a marmot. They live mostly in mountainous, rocky areas. They whistle loudly to communicate and alert others of danger. See them in Colorado a lot.

You don't need to be concerned about Big Tex. You need to be worrying about this worthless black murdering scum. Where is your concern for this poor white man???


The only thing worse than these murdering apes are brainwashed white guilt ridden liberals!!!

Can't help but pray you people meet your death the same way this poor mentally ill man did.

No all Catholic priest did this, only the homosexual priest did. Lets not blame all for the sickness of a few.

I don't know if Zimmerman is guilty or innocent. But I think there definitely should be a trial to find out.

So is there a higher standard for priests vs ministers, preachers, police officers, teachers etc???

Yes, I'm a graduate from a Catholic school & not all priests are molesters.

LOL 11:08 I soooo wish I got to leave during menstruation. A weekly vacay every month!! My husband and kids might appreciate me more (that is if they didn't kill one another before I returned.)

more fuel for the fire, right? And I didn't mention any names, so...

If you make the statement "There are too many murders" then you might have a legitimate argument. When you say "There are too many white people being killed by black people", then you show your true "colors".
And I'm not a liberal - bleeding heart or otherwise. I just think you're doing an end-run around being banned because you're a one-note troll

Too bad the ol' Brazos Queen isn't floating around anymore.

And that bridge will be great. We wouldn't have the new law school (that I've only been in once and highly doubt has improved the education over there) if not for the tobacco lawyers. So even though it sucks and is a far cry from getting yelled at by Muldrow, who always seemed to be within arm's reach at Constitution Hall, at least Baylor's rankings went up when they built it.

Oh, its ok for blacks to scream when whites kill them, but its not ok for whites to complain when blacks kill them???


You should seek help for your liberal bleeding heart white guilt.

ps. How often do whites murder blacks???

I'm a brown man. Once, on my way to Galveston I pulled into a small town parking lot to let my dog pee. A white man pulled up, got out, said he was just a citizen patrolling the town and asked me what was going on. He had a gun in a belt holster. I didn't beat him up and get shot. I just told him what was up, and went on our own ways. I thought he was doing a good job for the community, and I felt safe.
