Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • The Wright Amendment expired yesterday, and it's about 20 years too late.
  • I'm not sure why the Republicans in Wise County didn't  confess error in the appointment of the Elections Administrator and then reconvene and appoint him again. Right or wrong, it seems like a less drama filled resolution. 
  • That was a crazy storm last night. Sounds like 287 was shut down near Rhome due to downed power lines in the middle of the night.
  • Sports: (1) I stuck with the Baylor/TCU game when Baylor went down 58-37 with 11 minutes remaining. I could hardly cheer the win because I was in so much depression, and I'm still not sure how it happened. Baylor ran 109 plays! (2) I'm about to get the Sports Genius Title removed from me because of my Cowboys over/under prediction. But I'm certainly not alone. (3) And  I would have bet big money that the the Aggies would have won over Ole Miss and Auburn would have won over Mississippi State. (4) When Barry Switzer makes an appearance on the The Ticket there is no question that you can hear how he is getting old. 
  • Have I ever mentioned how much I think George Carlin was overrated? Crude. Not witty. Anyone can be crude. (<-- by="" li="" nbsp="" random="" the="" thought="" very="" way.="">
  • I'm a sucker for "Wichita Lineman" by Glen Campbell but I had no idea that R.E.M. covered it. (Ditto.)
  • I've always wondered why Lane Akin was behind the petition that had Terry Ross removed as a Wise County Commissioner. 
  • For 30 years I've written my accountant once a year about my taxes. I met him for the first time on Friday. (He thought I'd be taller.) 
  • Man, Clay Jenkins has to be sweating Ebola right now. 
  • Whenever a lawyer donates over $694,000 to a DA's race in San Antonio, be very afraid. 
  • Ebola Deaths vs. Motorcycle Deaths, who ya got?
