- "Breaking: US home construction jumps 15 percent in September to 4-year high of 872,000." Told you I thought the housing crash had bottomed out.
- I had to remove a wounded mouse from the garage yesterday. I would have preferred that it already be dead.
- I watched one of the Paranormal Activity movies (the second one I think.) As simplistic as those things are, I really get a kick out of them.
- The guy who killed the Arlington pastor received a death penalty verdict yesterday and then went nuts and flooded the courtroom. There's a fine line between evil and insane. I mean, that guy appears to be a monster but was he just born a monster?
- Working. Resentment. Relaxing. Guilt. Anyone else understand that?
- It's harder to follow the Aggies since they've joined the SEC. And that's just weird. But there's something about Tech, UT and Baylor not being on their schedule that takes them off the front page. (But they do have a fantastic freshman quarterback who has been nicknamed "Johnny Football.")
- If you are interested in the mindset of anonymous commentors referred to as "trolls" and the dark areas of the Internet, you might be interested in a story about an Arlington man who was "outed" by Gawker.com and who was fired from his job yesterday.
- Major cold front coming in later.
- Whatever happened to the Garland officer who fired 41 shots at a an unarmed guy and killed him after a car chase in August? (By the way, the guy shot by the Denton County deputy a couple of days ago has died.)
- Dark days for Lance Armstrong. As evidence now mounts that he was involved in doping during his Tour days, Nike has cut ties with him and, shockingly, he has stepped down from "Livestrong". Cut off your yellow bracelets.
