Random Friday Morning Thoughts



  • The Clint Eastwood "speech" last night at the RNC was one of the most bizarre things I've ever seen. Who came up with that bright idea? There is no way that could be classified as "good" or even "OK". 
  • And I have to note that I brought up Eastwood's name here out of the clear blue about ten days ago, and today he's the most talked about man in America. I'm magic.  
  • Mrs. LL said last night that the only way the Eastwood performance could become more insane would be if he introduced a hologram Ronald Reagan. 
  • Mitt was Mitt last night. Good not great. 
  • Metroplex police killed another citizen last night, and this one sounds like it has some iffy justification.
  • Last night in college football had a guy return a fumble the wrong way for 58 years yards.
  • A middle aged man playing on an escalator at a Houston Texan's game last night had a worse night because he fell to his death
  • Mrs. LL repaired our scratched floors (damaged due to the doberman) yesterday.  It looked like she had tried to create an atomic bomb based upon on the different products and waxes she experimented with before finding the right combo. 
  • Former Bridgeport resident Michelle Simpson (Tuegel) has taken part in some incredibly high profile criminal cases in Waco. She's involved in one now
  • I, on the other hand, made a rare appearance in Justice of the Peace court yesterday. Kind of fun.
  • Out of habit, I stood every time I spoke. The judge told me to stop doing that.
  • The Longhorn Network is now on ATT U-Verse. I was beginning to wonder if it simply was going to die a slow death. 
  • The trooper in the stalking case in Tarrant County received probation. I don't have any problem with that. He might be a nut, but he didn't deserve to go to prison. 
  • Courtney Stodden turned 18 and promptly lost her mind.
  • Turned on the TV last weekend and got sucked into O Brother, Where Art Thou? What a fantastic movie. (Someone quoted from the movie this week in the comments. I bet they ran across it last weekend, too.)
  • The Decatur Eagles play Trinity Christian tonight. If you didn't know they were a private religious school, I wonder if you could tell simply by the way the team conducts itself.
