Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

  • I was right: Sheriff Joe was in full Publicity Mode within 24 hours of the "bomb" being sent to him last week.  Fox News provided him a forum. 
  • I don't know much about Alex Jones other than he's a nut. Yesterday, there was a video clip of The Family Guy on his website which, along with voice over commentary, purported that the show had a segment about bombs being exploded at the Boston Marathon by the main character via a cellphone The only problem was that the cartoon was seriously doctored. They are trying to backtrack now
  • None of the runners on the course in the Boston Marathon were seriously injured, were they? 
  • The 80 year old man in the minor accident in Decatur yesterday is on the front second page of the Messenger. Near the back, his picture is also featured as he was honored on Sunday for his volunteering on the Decatur High School football sideline crew. 
  • Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott said the "threat of the Obama Administration" is "far more dangerous than what the leader of North Korea threatened." Heaven help us. 
  • My first memories of Pat Summerall is hist hosting of a one hour NFL highlights show on Saturday afternoons, This Week In Pro Football, with Tom Brookshier. It was the only place to get those highlights (other than about five minutes at halftime with Howard Cosell on Monday Night Football.)
  • Sumerall caught a little bit of flak 10 years ago when he got a liver transplant after years of battling alcoholism. It gave rise to the ethical question of whether he should get priority for the transplant over someone suffering from liver disease via natural causes.
  • The Ticket's morning show is in Alpine, Texas this morning. They sound really excited about that place. 
  • Did Google satellite view catch a guy dragging a body into a small lake near Amsterdam?
  • Arrested this morning but we don't know why yet: The wife of the Justice of the Peace in Kaufman (the JP is the subject of speculation in the DA's death). Edit: Some reports are now saying it is on capital murder charges. Oh, my. 
  • For everyone saying the "main stream media" is ignoring the trial of abortion doctor Dr. Kermit Gosnell, I don't know what you're talking about. I see multiple stories about it every day. 
  • I'll get off Dennis Prager one day (I promise), but on Monday he introduced Ann Coulter as one of "the greatest thinkers of our time" and then defended her "joke" about the desired death of the daughter of Sen. John McCain. (If “Republican senators need to have a member of their families killed for them to support the Democrats’ gun proposals” they should “start with Meghan McCain.”)
