Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • That "Settle down, Captain Happy" audio from over the weekend (a confrontation between pilots and an air traffic controller) was funny. 
  • Some days you just dread what is on your work schedule. Today is one of those days for me.
  • Got an email telling me that prices are rising for next year's Fort Worth Half Marathon. Early registration is $80.00 and they don't even tell you what the "late" (after 7/31/14) fee will be. Sheesh. That's a little pricey. 
  • A protester outside of Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins' home on Saturday. Lady, you may have a smirk on your face but you've got a lot of hate in your heart. And you protest at his home on a weekend? Get a life. 
  • I love all of those who are vehemently anti-illegal immigration but say "we welcome those who wish to enter out country legally and are willing to go through the process." Yeah, so long as it takes fifteen years and those trying are likely to give up. Let's streamline the "legal" process to six months and see how that attitude changes. 
  • The case of the doctor dying from the Ebola virus is scary. I bet he is quarantined like nobody's business. 
  • I've never had a decal on the back of any vehicle I've owned in over thirty years. 
  • The opening line for the UT/North Texas football game is the Empire by 25. I think that's insane.
  • I doubt if any of you heard it, but "author" David Horowitz was on Sean Hannity's radio show yesterday and not only did he sound like a nut, he sounded like he was about to have a heart attack.  It was weird.  And Hannity commented on it. 
  • The sale of the locally owned North Texas Bank sure did fly under the radar. 
  • I still think someone will die on the field during an NFL game one day. And when it happens, everything changes.
  • Take a pig out to the front yard and you become an instant celebrity.
  • ESPN's Sports Center is almost impossible to watch.
