Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • Well, even though the floozy counselor received probation in Tarrant County, I'm not sure that prosecution was worth it.
  • Seems kind of odd that Paradise ISD's athletic director suddenly stepped down in the middle of the school year.
  • Read lots of comments about a new Texas Monthly article about a man on death row who might be crazy. Well, that is if you think plucking both your eyes out while on death row constitutes crazy.
  • Mark Cuban was on Howard Stern yesterday acting like Cuban. Take away a few billion and he'd be better suited for Honey Boo Boo than Shark Tank.
  • About a week ago there was a story of a professor at Columbia University who stripped down to his underwear in class while scenes from 9/11 played in the background. His reason? "In order to learn quantum mechanics you have strip to your raw, erase all the garbage from your brain, and start all over again." All I could take away from the story is that there would be a 100% chance I'd fail "quantum mechanics" at Columbia.
  • 100% agree with bagofnothing.com: "The adopted girl on Modern Family has to be the worst [child] actor in the history of ever." Mrs. LL and I talked about that the other day when she kept delivering the line, "Call me a wambulance."
  • The Update is/was in some kind of funky "mobile mode" this morning where only one ad got through. 
  • One odd thing about the monster truck/strip club story (below): The guy gets drunk and runs over the gal and he is found to be 30% responsible and the strip club is 70%. Shouldn't it be the other way around?
  • DPS released a web page yesterday with a list of cold murder cases. There is one with a Jack County connection but none from Wise County. Do we have any infamous unsolved murder cases?
  • I don't think I've ever heard of so many houses, and now a business in Kansas City, blowing up from gas leaks.
