The Campaign For DA

Random Friday Morning Thoughts



  • There seems to be a whole lot of politics going on with the Allen ISD's shut down of their $60 million stadium. It looks like there were some cosmetic cracks which were noticed by stadium critics, those critics tipped off the Dallas Morning News, the News makes open record requests to obtain emails about stadium, and the ISD then holds a news conference to do damage control before the News could run a big story. 
  • Freezing rain on Sunday afternoon?
  • "A protester filmed what is possibly the first public footage of a Supreme Court . . . ." It's about as boring as you would expect.
  • Just when I thought nothing else was left to break in the house, the "coil" on our garage door popped. We went from a "single coil" to a "double coil" which doesn't mean much to me. 
  • It's been a while: Driver slams into Dallas cop car overnight. 
  • Weird shooting in Bridgeport yesterday. Suicide attempt? 
  • WBAP's Steve Lamb says he had a "mini stroke".
  • I'll be at the courthouse fairly often when I'll run into a government employee who'll go off on a Big Government Rant. 
  • Missed this Channel 5 story: "A Wal-Mart store in Decatur dismantled a dog food display that was stacked almost to the ceiling, amid questions about the safety risk." (Photo) That was ridiculous. 
  • A hot chick, whom I'm sure I featured, sued a mugshot website for using her image. 
  • For those of you who want to be beaten down with Margaritaville for the zillionth time, Jimmy Buffett will do his tired old bit again in Frisco this summer. (Can't stand that guy' music.)
  • I mentioned that I watched an episode of True Detective the other day and really liked it. I also had no idea what was going on since I hadn't seen this six prior episodes. I may catch up on it this weekend. 
  • Good radio this week when The Ticket interviewed Tom Landry, Jr. on what it was like when Jerry Jones flew down to Austin to tell them about the hiring of Jimmy Johnson. Everyone has always criticized Jones about the way he "handled" the firing, but what more can you do than fly down to Austin and handled it face to face?
