The Campaign For DA


Random Friday Morning Thoughts

  • Weird radio conversation this morning: If you hear someone in your house without permission do you confront them or hide? 
  • That story of the Plaintiff's lawyer being killed in his own condo lobby after reporting a burglary is beyond weird.  He was paranoid. Bath salts? 
  • Sports: (1) Man, OU looked like the old OU last night as they beat Alabama. And is there any better look when they are in all white uniforms?  (2) I finally saw a couple of Johnny Football's plays in his bowl game. Oh, my. (3) Most upsets have to be based on one team expecting to win while the other thinks they have to play harder than normal. Edit: Alabama's (-17) loss yesterday means 3 biggest bowl favorites all lost. Baylor (-16.5) lost to UCF & Arizona State (-16) lost to Texas Tech (4) Deadspin's "sad Alabama fans" is really funny.
  • Watched a lot of March of the Penguins last night. Love stuff like that. 
  • When I left the house the morning the Family Cat was laying sideways by the water bowl and staring at her paw that she had immersed in it. 
  • That was one angry crowd in Azle last night which gathered to confront Railroad Commission reps about the plethora of recent. earthquakes. When the reps announced they wouldn't take questions they looked like bought and paid for oil and gas stooges. 
  • When everything goes completely wrong I love the phrase "just burn the whole thing down." 
  • The comment yesterday calling me out for not being a huge fan of food might have been the strangest one ever. 
  • And the Canadian couple I talked to about health care? They said that if you need emergency attention you get in right away. If you need non-emergency issues (i.e. hip replacement) it'll take a few months. Seems fair.
  • Watched some of Go last night -- a film a came across a few years back. Not bad. 
  • Got to see the rare "(sic)" in the Update today. I'm not sure of the formal definition but I always consider it to mean "that's the way it appeared in the original text."
