The Campaign For DA


Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • Not a great start: Our office phones are jacked up. 
  • That man-on-crane story didn't end well. I can't tell if he intended to jump or not. It seems like he lost his balance while getting out of the crane and then ended up hanging out the side -- perhaps too weak to hand on for long. 
  • I would have watched more of the crane incident but the females in the house had the main TV occupied with a Zac Efron movie -- and apparently that is very important.
  • It's voting day. I don't care who you vote for in the Senate race, but please don't vote for David Dewhurst.  Because of him, I cannot get "Ted Cruz" and "Chines" out of my mind.
  • Watched most of the new The Longest Yard on Sunday night. The Eighth Grader in The House who knows nothing about football thought the football scenes were awesome. That about sums it up.
  • I got to use a circular saw for some fence repair this weekend. The sound made me feel like I was building a house. 
  • The guy arrested after the wreck that claimed the life of the Alvord girl was released on a personal recognizance bond.  For an out of county resident, that tells me something really unusual might be going on. And that's typically the case with the unusual criminally negligent homicide charge. 
  • Baptist Baseball: UTA will find itself surrounded at the regionals in Waco this weekend as they enter the first round against Baylor, Oral Roberts, and Dallas Baptist. 
  • We are testing out having The Family Cat hang out in the back yard with us. So far she's really calm. And tries to eat grass. 
  • I've always rolled my eyes about The Blind Side -- without seeing it -- because I thought it was a stereotypical "white woman saves the black man" movie. Well, I finally saw an hour of it yesterday and unless the end of it makes a miraculous comeback, it was worse than I envisioned.
  • This line in a podcast I was listening to while jogging yesterday almost stopped me down: "When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever, leaving something in its place I have traded for it."
