Lunch Time Links


  • Remember the golfer (who had Decatur ties) who was attacked on a metroplex golf course with a broken golf club? He almost bled to death. Well, he's taking legal action: He's suing the golf course.
  • NFL Films' Steve Sabol died this morning. I used to hate NFL Films (want to see a tight shot of a a slow motion spiraling football for 10 seconds?), but that outfit really improved over the years. 
  • Today is the anniversary of the capture of Patty Hearst -- one of the strangest stories I ever heard. 
  • There's a woman in Dallas who is said to be worth $13 billion. And she's the late Anna Nicole Smith's daughter-in-law. 
  • There were three people on my jury panel this morning who had family members that I had represented in DWIs.

Interesting that the golf thing changed from "stabbed with a broken golf club" to "dude impaled himself when he 'immediately' jumped on the drunk guy who 'negligently retained' his own broken golf club."

You did a good job this morning. You shoulda picked me for jury, though. I was disappointed. And, no, I wasn't one of the 3.

This is Bill. Idea to eliminate US haters....

Create exploding US flags, send them to parts of the world that hate the US. I can't believe I didn't think of this sooner.

That's what I want to do when I grow up.

That's because there is not many families in the whole state of Texas that does not have at least one DWI family member.

I think he should sue, the marshall said one was not right, when apparently he should have thrown the guy off the course before he injured the guy...just saying.

Since everybody in Wise County is related it is natural to have these connections. Must have been a small panel if only three had family members you represented.

The worthless peice of crap,( Clay Carpenter ) got exactly what he deserved. I've witnessed in person on two different occasions, at a track meet of all places,both times in Mineral Wells, Carpenters attitude almost got his ass kicked twice, and one of those times was by a plain clothes off duty state trooper. He's a low life and I feel sorry for his wife and Youngest son

Barry, do you have a phone number on the lady worth $13 billion? For that amount of money, I'll turn Mormon and add a wife.
