The Campaign For DA


Random Friday Morning Thoughts

  • The "Elf On The Shelf" has made an appearance at the house. I had never heard of this thing/concept until a couple of years ago, and the book I read last night (which I believe it is based upon) was copyrighted in 2005. Is it that recent?
  • He was up on a ledge this morning about 12 feet high. This whole concept kind of creeps me out. It feels more like Chuckie instead of an elf.
  • The dress code for the club that Josh Brent was in before the fatal crash is unusual. I support the "no Ed Hardy shirts" but the code for women seems pretty strict for the club scene. And, of course, I know club scenes.
  • I would support a "no Ed Hardy shirts" policy for the planet Earth.
  • Up at the courthouse yesterday, I heard someone mention they had received duplicate charges for a credit card transaction at Walmart. I looked at the blog this morning and he mentioned he had been double charged there as well. What's going on?
  • Mitt Romney's "47 Percent" gaffe tops Time's Top Ten Quotes of the Year
  • The "no parole" aspect for the Continuous Sexual Abuse law in addition to the 25 year minimum is truly insane. Those that practice criminal law understand this, but it's almost impossible to get the public to agree unless a specific case were to be analyzed. 
  • Fox 4's Clarice Tinsley really irritates me. 
  • The Ranger's first home game next year will see Josh Hamilton return as a member of the Los Angeles Angels. The boos will come pouring down. I think. 
  • Who would have the lower SAT score: Josh Hamilton or Dez Bryant?
  • The Freshman-In-The-House has to read Animal Farm for school. I kind of want to read it since it's been decades since I last have. I might actually understand it this time. 
  •  But I did remember and proclaimed in the house, "All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others." I got a lot of stares.
  • How many people attend a function for the Wise County Fossil, Rock and Mineral Society? Seriously.
  • Saw someone comment to the effect of, "The less you are attached to things the less suffering you will have when those things change."  
  • I don't know deer, but that looks like a big deer shot in Wise County.
