- Normally judges have pretty strict rules regarding campaigning. I'm half asleep as I write this (as always), but I just saw a commercial for Texas Supreme Court judge Don Willett which had such things as he "defended our right to display the Ten Commandments" and he is "the judicial remedy to Obamacare." That just seems wrong for a judicial ad.
- And the ad ended with a child in his lap as he read the Bible. It started with an endorsement from James Dobson.
- I had my very vivid I'm-In-School-But-Can't-Find-My-Class dream last night.
- I also dream about falling but I'm never hurt. Normally I'll bounce off things like tree limbs that launch me into another fall.
- Most people who are arrested in Wise County are locked up for very minor offenses and will be released once they make bond. That bond amount will be set by a Justice of the Peace who, in the past, would arrive at the jail between 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. in the morning. I'm getting a ton of complaints that it is becoming quite normal for the JP to now show up at 3:00 in the afternoon or later. That is unacceptable and certainly not the "efficient" and "responsive" Republican way.
- I've not heard a single negative complaint about The Avengers. In fact, I talked to two different people yesterday who said the audience applauded at the end of the movie.
- Josh Hamilton hit four home runs last night. His brain might be fried, but he can swing a bat. (But I think there were more fans at the softball game I went to last night than in Baltimore.)
- Marcia Clark was on Fox and Friends this morning to "talk about her new book." They hurtin' for guests over there?
- It's getting harder and harder to find: Blood Rush -- the book about Wise County's most notorious killer.
- I'll take a person who doesn't get worked up over anything versus a person who gets worked up over everything.
- The Ticket had a segment on The Beastie Boys yesterday and, I'll admit, other than Brass Monkey and You Gotta Fight, I really wasn't familiar with their music. And considering I thought those two songs were bad bits, I wasn't expecting much. Verdict: Their other stuff wasn't bad at all.
- This is not like one of my old single guy weeks: Softball tournament, birthday parties, Mother's Day. A man doesn't even have time to play with a backstop.
- Couple attacked by a baseball that acted like the bullet that hit Kennedy.
- The Tarrant County DA's new media relations employee has never released a press release about a "not guilty" verdict (and I know for a fact one occurred last week in a child sexual abuse case.)
- What's up with juvenile crime? We had the verdict last week in the kid that dropped all the F bombs, a bunch of kids last year pushed the kid in front of the DART train, we've got a home invasion and murder in Dallas by kids, and four teens are held in a fatal carjacking in Houston.
- The Black Hawk Down book is pretty good but I feel like a need a city map of Mogadishu in order to keep up.
