The Campaign For DA


Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • There are a lot of awards given out to kids in school. 
  • Did you know there is a soccer match between Mexico and Brazil at Cowboys Stadium this weekend. And it is sold out. I wonder what percentage will be Hispanic. Over 90%? Is that too low?
  • Wrong way driver in Mesquite last night kills five including three children..
  • After being down 16-0 after three innings last night, it's a miracle the Rangers only gave up 21.
  • Tony Romo threw out the first pitch to that debacle.
  • I wonder if the John Edwards jury is doing a bit. They enter day nine of deliberations.
  • WBAP's Hal Jay said one of his favorite songs is Sting's "Fields Of Gold." I'll be. Mine too.
  • Everyone is dogging Kathie Lee Gifford for not doing her homework when she asked Martin Short about his wife (not knowing she was deceased), but Short's answer certainly gave the impression she was alive. It sounds like, "We've  uh have married 36 years."  He was trying to be gracious but it added to the confusion. An answer of "We were married 36 years" would have ended that line of questioning. 
  • Heard on the radio: At what age does a guy no longer go over to someone else's house just to "hang out"? It better be at a pretty young age. 
  • A guy can kill five in a Seattle cafe and it's not the lead story on the news. Even when the story is accompanied by a clear picture of him walking into the establishment.
  • I think Wordkyle questioned me yesterday about calling the Tea Party an "organization." Am I off base?
  • What if there were two Libertarians who wanted to run for the same office in the same location. Would the state have to go through the expense of putting on a separate primary to decide who goes on the ballot in the Fall?
  • The economy is still stagnant but I'll continue to bet on Obama for this Fall's election.  But there's a lot of things that can happen.
  • There's been no announcement about Jane McGarry's future but she's changed her Facebook page to remove any photos showing her in the KXAS studios. Omen?
  • Mrs. LL always talks about moving to Costa Rica. I wonder what it would be like to really do that. 
  • The more I hear about the movie Bernie (I mentioned it a couple of weeks back), the more I want to see it. One of the big enticements is that it is directed by Texan Richard Linklater whose career got rolling with Dazed and Confused.
  • Those constables in the Valley look like wrestlers.
