Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • Ebola!!!! I'm scared to go outside this morning. Is there anyone left alive? 
  • Ebola has more of an impact as a photo op mechanism: (1) The President gathers his cabinet for the cameras yesterday, (2) The Dallas mayor and Dallas County judge may trample each other headed for the camera, (3) There is an actual Congressional hearing today on Ebola! and (4) Dallas County Commissioners will meet to day to declare Dallas County a "disaster area".  Embarrassing.
  • Belton ISD has closed three of its schools because a couple of its students were on the same plane as the Second Ebola Nurse? 
  • The blog will be a little different over the next couple of days as I begin my football trip this morning to West Virginia. (No way I'm staying in Ebola Land. I'm getting into a compressed tube that moves at over 500 miles per hour. In the sky!!!) 
  • I took the new express lanes on 820 to DFW Airport during morning rush hour. Verdict? Fantastic!
  • If I can pull it off, I'm going to go to the NFL Hall Of Fame from the Pittsburgh airport. 
  • Some guy on here yesterday was blaming the stock market dip yesterday on President Obama. Any chance he judges climate change based upon one day's weather? 
  • Ed Bark got mad at me again on Twitter yesterday, and I didn't even start it! I am absolutely amazed how people in the local media are so thin skinned. Man, I take a beating far worse than he does before 9:00 a.m. every morning -- which is probably attributable to the fact that I have more readers.  (For the majority of you who don't know who he is, he runs a TV web site which he created after "taking a buyout" from the Dallas Morning News.) 
  • Hey neighbor: Why is your dog barking like a fool at 4:30 a.m.? 
  • Fox News put up one of their polls last night that said 58% of people think the "world" is "going to hell in a hand basket."  (Actual quote). I'm stunned their angry viewership only responded with a 58% margin.
