The Campaign For DA

Random Tuesday Morning ThoughtsR


  • The Family Pup loves to put her head on my laptop keyboard which always causes screen chaos.  And I have a hard time disturbing her comfortableness.
  • I'm not sure I understand the current VA "controversy". It's been a disaster for as long as I can remember.
  • And it is a little odd that the Far Right demands flawless and government provided health care for veterans but opposes any public funded health care for the poor.
  • I watched the end of USC/Texas 2006 National Championship game over the weekend. And even as a Baylor fan, I have no problem saying that Vince Young is the greatest college football player ever. 
  • We have a male "And Another" out of Denton and a lead paragraph that uses the word "ignominiously." 
  • They've shut down Allen High School's $60 million stadium for the fall. Incredible. 
  • I don't know anything about Brazil. I don't know anything about the World Cup. But I'm predicting the combination of the two this summer will be a disaster. Crime is crazy (police have already warned tourists "not to fight back") and labor issues will have some of the new stadiums incomplete. 
  • The U.S. indicting "five Chinese military officials yesterday for allegedly stealing trade secrets" is simply silly. They'll never stand trial. It's all a waste of time but a way to get some news coverage. I'll accept Eric Holder rants on this one. 
  • I'm not saying it'll be cheap, but with the repeal of the Wright Amendment we'll see the cheapest fares in America out of DFW this fall. 
  • When Mrs. LL wakes up from a nap, I sometimes stand over her and say, "And you want to be my latex salesman?"
  • A guy honked at the Sophomore in the House because she was driving too slowly last night. That really made me mad. 
  • David Dewhurst may be the worst campaigner ever. And as I've said before, the man behind his goofy ads is the same guy which was behind Rick Perry's disastrous presidential campaign: Dave Carney. 
  • "I Want To Marry [the Fake Prince] Harry" debuts tonight featuring three metroplex women: "The North Texas bachelorettes put to the test are Meghan Jones, 26, an artist from Dallas; Andrea Fox, 25, a technology sales representative from Plano; and Leah Thom, 24, a cocktail waitress from Fort Worth." I could see Mrs. LL getting sucked into this.
  • I hate the phrase "we shocked the world" when spoken about any American sports team's accomplishment. And even the highly overrated writer Peter King said it the other day. 
  • I love this title of an article written by a relative of a 9/11 victim: The Worst Day Of My Life Is Now New York’s Hottest Tourist Attraction
