The Campaign For DA


Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

  • I had to "babysit" the Junior In The House last night because she had a root canal and, according to Mrs. LL who had to go to a softball game, "She's all doped up on valium." Ummkay. Before I got home I got the report that, "She put your reading glasses on and, in a Southern drawl, announced, 'I do declare!!!!'"  I was very nervous, but all went well. 
  • Although she got to control the TV, so I had to watch about four episodes of some show about a family with nineteen kids. (Not bad by the way.)
  • Given the choice of two dead journalists vs. 3,500 dead U.S. soldiers, I'll take the former. 
  • Deion Sander's home in Prosper finally sold after being on the market forever.  The purchaser plans to turn the property into a subdivision -- a subdivision with, I guess, one huge house right in the middle of it. 
  • I watched the scene of Breaking Bad last night where the Mexican brothers ambush Hank in the parking lot. Man, that show was so well done. 
  • Denver Bronco Wes Welker was suspended four games for amphetamine use. Just like Cowboy Orlando Scandrick, he took X but it was laced with amphetamine.  The Dallas Observer did a post on this problem a couple of years back entitled  "Don't Panic, But There's Probably Meth in Your Ecstasy". (But at least we know why Welker looked high and was handing out $100 at the Kentucky Derby.)
  • It's been a while (and it's up in Denison), but we have a parked squad car hit this morning. Pic
  • We've done everything we can to find the owners of Family Pup #2. Flyers. Every possible message board and web site. And we got nothing. This is a well groomed and well trained dog. I actually caught the thing when some sweet gal stopped and got out of her car and the pup jumped in her car like she was going for a ride. It just seems odd we can't find the owner. Mrs. LL thinks the little thing was dumped. I don't know what to think. 
  • Wendy Davis was on The Ticket this morning. It was funny because, as politicians do, once you ask them a question they will talk and talk and talk. Gordon Keith interrupted her by saying, "This sounds like a filibuster." I'll be dang, she stopped talking. They ended the interview asking her what she thought about the pics of Jerry Jones with the strippers and what she thought the Cowboys' record would be. She was very uncomfortable. 
  • Is there any question that George P. Bush looked in the mirror as a teenager and thought, "Hey, my last name is Bush!!"
