- Back to normal: Parked Dallas police car crashed into last night.
- The only thing more boring than the NBA is the NBA Draft. Unless you are drafting in the top five to ten (depending on the year), the chances of finding a starter are almost nil.
- There's a show on the Ticket that has a great summer bit: They try to book a bizarre set of guests who aren't A-list stars, not sports related, but who we all know. Yesterday they had on William Zabka. Who's he? He's the actor who was told to "sweep the leg" in the Karate Kid. Amazingly entertaining stuff. (Oddest part yesterday: "I never got into the drug scene. I've never even tried cocaine." Host: "Why not?")
- Both Cruz and Dewhurst oppose abortion even in the case of rape and incest. I've you are pro-life, I've never understood how you could make any exceptions.
- One thing the Obamacare ruling will do is give the President an opportunity to sell the program to the public in response to Romney's attacks. The Democrats did a horrible PR job the first time around.
- After the ruling yesterday, it seemed like Facebook had been taken over by the Klan. People are crazy.
- January Jones stops me down.
- When I first mentioned my Mormon book that I'm reading, someone commented about how incredible it is that the Haun's Mill Massacre is not taught in history class. I got to that chapter yesterday. Holy cow. (And that attack was far more government sanctioned that the link describes.)
- And I had forgotten how the "Book of Mormon" mentions Jesus traveling to North America after the Resurrection to stop a battle between two groups. I guess that would explain why the Bible is relatively silent as to Jesus' actions post crucifixion.
- For obvious reasons I can't talk about the removal petition filed yesterday in Wise County, but can someone tell me if that "Lane Akin" is the former Texas Ranger or his son. I'm guessing the latter.
- Texas AG Attorney General Greg Abbott this morning said one bright lining about the Obamacare decision was that it was the first time since FDR that the Commerce Clause has been reigned in. Not true. The court invalidated a federal law prohibiting guns in schools in 1995 on that basis.
- I hate having the cruise control on, slowly approach a vehicle in front of me, and then having to hit the brakes and disengage the cruise control because I'm slowly being passed on the left. (First World Problem.)
