Random Friday Morning Thoughts



  • Another weird metroplex-mother-might-have-killed-her-child case -- this time out of Frisco. It sounds like the kid might have been dead for several days before the case came to light. 
  • I saw footage of the Frisco Chief of Police talking about the case last night on Fox 4. He said, "It's not normal behavior for Frisco . . . [insert awkward pause as he realizes that either sounded high tone or potentially racial] . . . or any suburban area." 
  • If a criminal defense lawyer ever refers to his client as "my client" in the courtroom or during an interview with the press, he has no idea what he is doing. 
  • George Zimmerman has agreed to be in a "celebrity" boxing match.  
  • An immediate Power Down Moment for me: Any time a sports media member says, "And my Super Bowl pick is . . . . " I don't care who you think is going to win. (This was only surpassed when Norm Hitzges, in the early 1990s, would dedicate a whole hour of his show to callers who phoned in their picks.) 
  • I only watched a portion of it, but CNN had a documentary last night on the musical "British Invasion" in the 1960s. If you were a young music fan back then, that had to be a fun time to be alive.
  • Some gal named Renee Fleming will sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl. Weird: You can actually bet if she wears gloves and what color they will be. What's to prevent her, through an intermediary, from betting a fortune on wearing gloves that are black and then wearing gloves that are black?
  • There's just something weird about the case where Fort Worth police went to the wrong house during a burglary call and shot the 72 year old homeowner. This week the Tarrant County grand jury decided to not indict the officers "after hearing 25 hours of testimony". That fact alone tells you something is up. Grand juries hardly ever hear any testimony. They normally just listen to a brief "summary" of the case from an assistant DA -- a presentation that can last just a couple of minutes.  And the conclusion of the "medical examiner investigator" was that the 72 year old reached for his weapon after he had placed it on his car at the request of the officers? Come on. 
  • There's news again of a couple of cruise ships having to return to port early (New Jersey and Texas) due to a mass sickness breaking out.  The concept of a cruise seems less and less appealing as time goes by. 
  • Is there a bigger fraud than Deion Sanders? A secret recording was released yesterday where he wanted to be paid more by Prime Prep Academy for his self-proclaimed role being "HNIC". (That's Head N-Word In Charge for the uninitiated.) 
  • I'm completely confused by the Amanda Knox guilty/not guilty is-she-or-is-she-not saga. But I do know it's a crime she cut her hair
  • This morning the Musers on The Ticket were interviewing Adrian Peterson on Radio Row when Jesse Jackson just walked by and put on a headset and joined in. (Photo immediately thereafter.)

My compliments, counselor. You described the Jesse Jackson incident without once using the phrase "media-craving whore." A masterful display of language.

Jesse Jackson - biggest media whore of all time? Totally ruined that much anticipated interview. Totally agree with his agenda though. Play the Super Bowl in better climates or indoors.

Triple Fake... said...

the word "hijacking" is appropriate in this case. What should have been a conversation with AP turned into a quasi civil-rights-in-football history lecture.
It's a sports talk station and it's Super Bowl week. Hey, Rev - how about letting the sports talk host talk to the football player. And Junes - you may consider JJ an icon, but don't defer to him on your turf. Give him the old stiff arm and power through!

Frisco death:
because hiding your deceased child (that you may have killed) in your bathtub is normal for the inner city, right Chief? Or did you mean the suburbs as opposed to rural areas? Either way, just...wrong!

George Zimmerman in a "celebrity" boxing match - Stand your ground rule in effect

I don't know that much about betting, but if somebody laid a fortune on a particular outcome, wouldn't that lower the odds - and the return?

"And my client's Super Bowl pick is..."

Was listening to the Musers and watching on cam... was a pretty cool moment... all were actually in a little amazement of the scene.

Deion Sanders and Jesse Jackson in one post. And a police shooting. It's gonna be troll city.

Isn't the hoopla over British Invasion just sort of a response to NBC getting all puffed up over the 50th anniversary of The Beatles playing the Ed Sullivan Show?

So there are three documentaries on Netflix, if you have it, that I recommend. It seems you really enjoy documentaries, don't know anyone who doesn't.

Jiro Dreams of Sushi
SOMM
Camp 14

Camp 14 is about the person born into the most notorious prison camp in North Korea and escaped. It will humble you.

George Zimmerman is about to get his butt kicked by a black guy. I have been watching white guys try this since Cassius Clay's days. They have seldom had any success.

John Wiley Price had a Lamborghini or a Lotus back in the 90's with a personal LP of N1NIC.

"Some gal named Renee Fleming"

I'm not an opera fan, but I've heard of Renee Fleming. She's probably the most famous soprano in America, has been all over TV for years, on everything from Sesame Street to various Memorial Day/4th of July concerts to Obama's inaugural celebration.

It's not like they just pulled a random name to do the anthem. I know opera's probably not a big deal in Wise County, but c'mon...

"What's to prevent her, through an intermediary, from betting a fortune on wearing gloves that are black and then wearing gloves that are black?"

Intermediary? That word hasn't been used much since Michael Bolton looked up "Money Laundering" in the dictionary like a dweeb on "Office Space." Way to reach down deep and pull a throwback on Friday BG!!!

BG Be Like, "Yo, Throwback Thursday can be played on Friday, so don't be judging me!"

Dude, today's RTG is horrible.

Don't get me wrong, I'd hit it, but that's not the point. You have the whole internets before you and you give us some guy's wife that doesn't know where the gym is or how to say no to a slice of cheesecake.

You can do better. It's Friday - we deserve better.

The grand jury process is badly flawed for the exact reason that you gave. A presentation by an assistant District Attorney is slanted and many times flawed itself.

I'm torn on the RTG. I mean, I would, but I don't really wanna'.

They normally just listen to a brief "summary" of the case from an assistant DA

I Harris County, that "brief summary" includes several films of police officers being fired upon by bad guys. Then they explain how dangerous it is to be a cop. Then they give it to the grand jury, which has not indicted a cop in the last 250+ cop shootings. Including the unarmed, one-armed, one-legged, wheelchair-bound guy shot by the cop who had somehow managed to get "cornered" by him.

"And my client's Super Bowl pick is..."

The funny TF is back. Good to see him again.

Funny that you would call out the Frisco police chief for possibly using racially charged language and then a few thoughts later you refer to Deion as a "HNIC".

Should have known that Jesse Jackson was somewhere around the Super Bowl! I mean there are a bunch of cameras and microphones around, so he has to be there.

Guess that he is probably heading to Russia for the Olympics next!

He is nothing but a media whore!

11:42, Deion is the one naming himself HNIC. Come on Dude. I don't have time to explain every blog post to you. Try to keep up.

1:18 I am quite aware that is what he called himself but there was no need for BG to repeat it. Liberals are not supposed to make hay over this type of slur unless it comes from a white man. It is racist for a white person even to quote it.

Had Sean Hannity made the exact same post, written as BG did, he would be skewered for it.
