The Campaign For DA

2.25.2014

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts



  • The "got milk" campaign is going away.
  • It better rain this Spring - a lot - or Lake Bridgeport is going to be a disaster. Heck, that can almost be said about it now.
  • I went to a legal seminar on Friday and actually spoke out from the audience. I'm not sure I've done that in 25 years. (And, upon reflection, I really didn't have all that much to offer.)
  • Mrs. LL and I saw the play Venus in Fur at the Circle Theater in downtown Fort Worth on Friday.  Get this: It was a two person play that ran for 90 minutes without an intermission. (And, man, that was an older crowd.) 
  • And if you haven't been to downtown Fort Worth since the recent renovations, check it out. It's fantastic.
  • The President issued a statement on the death of Harold Ramis.
  • The Ticket has been talking all morning about the 25th anniversary of the Jerry Jones buying the Cowboys, and they had Ivan Maisel on to talk about the iconic photo of Jerry and Jimmy at Mia's. If you go to the restaurant on Lemmon Avenue, they have that photo hanging in that booth. 
  • The ex-girlfriend of almost indicted Dallas district judge Carlos Cortez is pretty hot
  • I watched a little of Ted Nugent on CNN last night. He's not quite as happy go lucky as he once was. In fact, he's almost an angry old man.
  • I flip over to WBAP for about five minutes every morning. Today they had a new sponsor: Food 4 Patriots which sells pre-packaged survival food. What the heck is going on over there? 
  • From the Update: "The Bridgeport Class of 2018 . . . . " I couldn't read anything past that. 
  • It looks like Tarrant County won't be coming Democratic any time soon. Early voting shows Republicans are outvoting them by over a two to one margin
  • Two ex-SEALs on the "Captain Phillips" ship might have died from a drug overdose
  • Not that anyone cares, but there was a "controversial" ending to the Argyle/Celina girls basketball game that sent Argyle to the State Championship Tourney after double overtime. 
  • There are abortion protesters at Paschal High School in Fort Worth this morning? Why?
  • The Star-Telegram has a cover story on Highway 114 this morning. I remember when it went through downtown Rhome.
