- Edit: Oops. I was debating with RTG to post and forgot to make a decision.
- It sounds like a funny bit: There is talk of Cowboys Stadium hosting four college basketball games to be played simultaneously. But, logistically speaking, wouldn't the multiple buzzers and whistles drive all the players crazy?
- There's something that makes me uncomfortable about the Salvation Army bell-ringing campaign.
- Pictures of Decatur guys shooting deer, a coyote, and a bobcat(?).
- Unemployment rate news this morning: It has fallen to 7.7%. I guess America will survive the presidential election after all!
- Mrs. LL last night: "Help her with geometry." Me: "You're kidding, right?" Her: "It's only geometry." I felt like Mike Wallace of 60 Minutes was bearing down on me as I picked up the homework page with a shaking hand.
- There's a whistleblower lawsuit involving an assistant principal in Fort Worth which is filed in Wise County and was mentioned in the Fort Worth Weekly this week after a recent ruling.
- A three year old from Decatur was listed in the Update's death notices.
- I mentioned this from time to time: More than a decade ago the Update used to list the names of individuals who were admitted to the local hospital. That sounds insane now.
- There were reports from the metroplex of a huge meteor around 6:45 a.m. this morning.
- News video of people smoking pot under the Space Needle in Seattle yesterday was just plain weird. (It was the first day Washington's legalization took effect. Oddly, it is still illegal to smoke in public but no one seemed to care.)
- The McAfee anti-virus guy who is accused of murdering a man in Belize has been arrested and is blogging from jail. That man has lost his mind.
- If murder was legal, how much would it escalate? Twice as much? Ten times? More?
- I am so out of the music loop that I have no idea what a song by Mumford & Sons sounds like. I just see their name all over the place.
- Professionally, I may have had the greatest emotional experience over the last seven days. I came in contact with a man who was skeptical and suspicious of me who now is concerned I might not be around to help in the future.
- Thing I learned this morning: Lee Harvey Oswald was only 24 when he did the deed.
- It seems like the electrical-poles-catching-fire story would have been bigger than what it was.
