Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • A new proposed Texas law will outlaw Voyeurism. I was prepared to make fun of it, but I don't think I can based upon the way that it is written. (Except for the binoculars/telescope part which seems to be a little over the top.)
  • The female Texas trooper who intimately searched the two women after a traffic stop a couple of months ago has been indicted for sexual assault. That's insane. The male trooper was indicted because one of the women said her bottle of prescription medication was missing after the traffic stop. I hope they have more proof than that.
  • If this story is true, it may be the most horrific crime I've ever heard.
  • I created a website using Godaddy.com this weekend. As goofy as their ad campaigns have been, it is a fantastic product.
  • I don't know much about Ole Miss basketball player Marshal Henderson other than people told me to watch him because he was like a cocky Eminem. (He's pretty funny. One reporter asked him if his off-the-court persona was "calculated." He responded with, "I'm not very good at math.") But I just learned he used to play basketball while in school at Bowie, Texas. 
  • What a fun group at JerryWorld this weekend for the next round: #1 Kansas, #4 Michigan, #3 Florida, and everyone's new favorite, #15 Florida Gulf Coast (a school that is only 16 years old and which only began playing Division I basketball two years ago.) 
  • More importantly, the wife of the coach of Florida Gulf Coast was a huge Hey, Now back in the day. 
  • Decatur ambulances were dispatched to a medical emergency at Allsups this morning. Turns out a guy was simply asleep in his car "after working all night."
  • We've got too many dogs. I'm not pleased. And I swear I looked up on Sunday and saw they were all wearing diapers. 
  • "Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me." That has to be the most ignored of all of Jesus' words, right?
  • Sheriff David Walker in a Chicago paper pointing his finger at his head
  • I don't know if it is true, but I read yesterday that Subway now has more restaurants than McDonald's. I believe it. You can't go a mile in the metroplex it seems without seeing one. 
  • A Baylor student died during a half marathon at the school this weekend. 
  • I turned on one of the ESPN channels on Friday night and saw a soccer game between the United States and Costa Rica being played in Denver -- and in a snowstorm. Pic. It was beyond bizarre. I think they switched from a white ball to a colored one so they could see it. 
  • I watched the 30 for 30 documentary on the North Carolina State 1983 Championship Team: Survive and Advance. For a subject I had no interest in, it was fantastic. 
  • TCU's new 8-foot Horned Frog statue is more intimidating than things that are intimidating.
