The Campaign For DA


Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • Courtney Stodden has lost her mind as she acts like a cat.
  • An Ector County prosecutor died of cancer yesterday. I researched a little bit about him, and I learned in February of 2010 he was given 22 months to live. That was a sad, but shockingly accurate, prognosis.
  • I don't know anything about Kelly Hancock, but he's spent a shocking amount of money to beat Todd Smith in a Texas state Senate race.
  • Paradise ISD is spreading more computers around according to the Update but providing the "high school staff" with Macbook Airs seems excessive. But I might simply be jealous.
  • The Rangers don't look as invincible now. Yesterday  Neftali Feliz was put on the disabled list, and Yu Darvish got rocked against Seattle. I'll save my Hot Sports Prediction for the All-Star Break. 
  • I've started a new book: The Hunt for KSM: Inside the Pursuit and Takedown of the Real 9/11 Mastermind, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.  I learned yesterday that his first visit to the United States was to enroll in a private Baptist junior college in North Carolina. (He's the guy that looks like Jim Belushi, by the way.)
  • Ann Curry tweeted this a couple of hours ago: "Morning. I love you." I wonder if she's about to be fired as co-host of The Today Show?
  • If I start a sentence off with "I wonder" should it end with a question mark? That's a statement and not a question, isn't it?
  • WBAP's Hal Jay told a pedophile joke this morning. 
  • I watched a 10 and under girls softball game last night and the worst throw I saw came one hour later on TV when Josh Hamilton launched a ball into the dugout from centerfield in Seattle. (And did you hear that Fox Southwest had a technical problem last night that required the Rangers game to be commercial free? Same thing happened for Astros game as well.)
  • The more you hear about the plane crash in Wise County on Sunday the more horrible it sounds. The young girl who is in critical condition worked at Wise Regional and went to TCU according to her Facebook page.
  • I'm about to alter my policy on posting racist comments. After years, this blog seems to be getting hijacked.
  • Those two guys in the Sonic commercials used to be funny.
