Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • For years I've been ranting about the FBI/CIA "creating" terrorists by entrapment. Well, it looks like I'm not the only one. HBO debuted a documentary last night called the Newburgh Four about the issue, and Yahoo! News featured this yesterday: "Washington (AFP) - The FBI encouraged and sometimes even paid Muslims to commit terrorist acts during numerous sting operations after the 9/11 attacks, a human rights group said in a report published Monday."
  • I think we had a pretty bad motorcycle wreck in Rhome this morning.
  • I jogged yesterday, and I'm not sure I've ever sweated more. So hot. So humid.
  • I've always wanted to see the Big Bend area of Texas but it is so difficult to get to. I mean, going to Chicago or Denver or New Orleans is a hundred times easier.
  • I've never seen a Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings movie.
  • I think I'm the only person who remembers a comedy show called Herman's Head which ran in Fox's early days. I liked it. I may be the only one.
  • UNT's new law school expected about 350 applications for the inaugural class this Fall — and got more than 600. Sheesh. 
  • The "house explosion" always gets my attention and they had one near Houston last night. It's gone. 
  • I've got Argo recorded, I know I'll like it, but I'm just never in the mood to watch it. 
  • From the Update: "MEMORIAL service for Christopher John Corniel, 23, of Denton is 11 a.m. Saturday at Jones Family Funeral Home." Anyone know the story behind this? I think his mom died a couple of years ago. 
  • I've mentioned this before: That single left turn lane on FM 51 730 under 287 near James Wood's is going to get someone killed. You can have two cars traveling in opposite directions at 40 mph who can legally and simultaneously go into that lane. (Google street view should be here.)
