The Campaign For DA


Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • The proposed Cowboys practice facility in Frisco (which will include a 12,000 seat domed stadium to also be used by local Frisco high schools) sounds cool. And it wouldn't surprise me that in 50 years that will be the site of a new stadium once the Death Star outlives its usefulness. But that assumes the NFL will exist in 50 years.
  • Regarding the deal, Fox 4's Calvert Collins immediately tweeted: "Over 30 years, analyst says the project brings $23.4 billion in NEW money, 4,500 NEW jobs by 2026 and $1.2 billion in NEW tax revenue."  You'd think someone might tap the brakes on those figures. 
  • The last two nights I've dreamed about two specific criminal cases which had me meeting with clients, prosecutors, and researching. The odd thing: Those cases didn't exist. So I'm needlessly working during sleep.
  • The Ticket's Junior Miller proclaims today at 2:00 p.m. as being the worst moment of the year. It's the worst month (the hot dog days), it's a Tuesday (and still lots of the work week left), and at 2:00 p.m. you still have a while to go before quitting time. 
  • Before the season, I predicted Yu Darvish would be the runner in Cy Young voting. Heck, he might with the thing.
  • Mark Levin was on Hannity last night (which was probably a paid book promotion) and the words "Exclusive Interview" were shown on the screen. Really? Would any network even want to have him on? (But he doesn't do his goofy yelling when he's on TV like when he's on the radio.)
  • A man fell to his death at an Atlanta Braves game last night. 
  • ESPN's Outside the Lines is reporting there are two more mass autograph sessions of Johnny Manziel. 
  • I was so wrong about what I expected to be the public outcry over PRISM and government spying that it has temporarily sucked the political life force out of me. I'm not sure anyone cares about anything important. 
  • You never hear positive financial news about Radio Shack or J.C. Penney.
  • It took a judge a whopping 195 pages to explain why the New York Police Department's "stop and frisk" policy is unconstitutional? (Couldn't she just cite to Terry v. Ohio?)
