- AI guy in a self check out line in Walmart yesterday was telling people behind him, "I might be a while. I've got a lot of pennies." He then methodically stood there paying in pennies like it was a slot machine. Shouldn't you cash those pennies in first before going through the check out line?
- The Texas Senate voted for term limits (two of them) yesterday. The most vocal opponent was Wise County's own State Senator Craig Estes. Maybe he needs more than two terms to find Wise County.
- The legislature is also considering allowing government entities to post required public notices online instead of having to buy space in local newspapers. Local newspapers are not impressed with this idea.
- The Family Pup #2 (the Yorkie saved from death row) is a little bit more rambunctious than The Family Pup. He'll hound you to play fetch all day long and has this weird ability to jump onto window sills that are over two foot off the ground.

- Whatever happened to the metroplex cop who was involved in a high speed chase and then shot the unarmed fleeing man a krillion times?
- The President is in Israel today? I thought you guys told me he didn't care about that country.
- After my Vicksburg trip, I've gone back and watched some of Ken Burn's "The Civil War" documentary online. I was stunned to see it first aired in 1990.
- I wrote over Thanksgiving that everyone should read the two part series in Texas Monthly about the falsely accused Michael Morton who was falsely imprisoned for killing his wife until DNA led to someone else. That "someone else" is now on trial for Morton's wife's murder and Morton took the stand yesterday. He is, after all, a witness as to the last time he saw his wife alive.
- I missed
George MasonRobert Morris beating Kentucky in the NIT yesterday. The game had to be played in the 3,000 seat home arena of George MasonRobert Morris because Kentucky had a scheduling conflict. Kentucky averaged 12,000 at home per game. Edit: Huge error. Kentucky averaged 23,099 per game.
