The Campaign For DA


Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

  • Now the home air-conditioner is on the blink. My first thought isn't "I'm going to be uncomfortable tonight" but instead involves dollar signs. 
  • The UIL went 100% on the offensive after the relay-team-disqualified-for-religious-gesture incident issuing this press release which had this quote from the offending kid: "I do not feel my religious rights or freedoms were violated." Greg Abbott, what say you? 
  • Bangladesh death update: Over 800.
  • "Looking Past Sex Scandal, South Carolina Returns Ex-Governor to Congress."  I don't think it was a matter of forgiveness, I think it was a matter of people not caring. 
  • A Toronto pitcher almost got killed by a line drive last night. 
  • It's Benghazi Day in Congress. And there will be nothing new.
  • From the Update: "The Wise Soil and Water Conservation District was honored as the Outstanding Conservation District last night at the Area V Conservation Awards Banquet in Stephenville." They ought to give out awards for having to sit through something called the Area V Conservation Awards Banquet.
  • I caught a little bit of a CNN interview with Amanda Knox last night. The interviewer was really challenging her on how propensity to take a long pause before each answer. And then she took a long pause before she answered him. "I'm a writer," she said. 
  • The 14 Year Old In The House has become the 15 Year Old In The House. Time moves shockingly fast. 
  • Mark Cuban writes about saving umbilical cord blood. Once again, trying to demonstrate he's the smartest man in the room. 
  • When I was in my 20s I didn't believe in the Stockholm Syndrome. I absolutely believe in the concept now.
  • I've heard a lot of people saying the kidnappers in Ohio should receive the death penalty. If all they did was commit a horrendous kidnapping, that can't happen. (Although there is some evidence of a possible murder beginning to surface.)
