Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • Mrs. LL is sick but was smart enough to go to the doctor immediately.  But now I'm not feeling very well. Maybe just sympathy pains? Naaaaaa.
  • Christians are fatter than atheists? There would be nothing more ironic if that is true.
  • Cowboys are in the playoffs and gas is under $2.00. Hello, 1990s!
  • The Sixth Grader in the House was dressed so crazy for church on Sunday that I told her she looked like Cindy Lauper.   I shouldn't have been surprised when I got a confused look in return.
  • The Wise County Courthouse is closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Huh?
  • If anyone disagrees with my hatred of Joe Jamail, watch this. And to think the University of Texas has his statue side by side with the great Darrell Royal.
  • Former Bridgeport resident Allen Vaught is in the Dallas Morning News.
  • I'm so conflicted about that goofy Texas Supreme Court Justice.  He's no idiot. Yet he's not that smart. But he's definitely a nerd on Twitter. And then he upped his game on Friday when he dissented in a decision by quoting Ferris Bueller (in a decision saying that the court should interpret how much protection bloggers have.) He did it only to get publicity and it worked. Crazy like a fox?
  • The Dow just broke 18,000 this morning. It was 7,949 when the President took office. 
  • If the U.S. knocked out North Korea's internet access for a few hours, I'm pleased we can actually carry out something out successfully.
  • I failed to mention it yesterday, but the fact that one of the Wise County Sheriff's Office's servers was crippled by a hacker is the story of the year. A $500 ransom? In Bitcoin? You're kidding me!
  • I'd like to have an accounting from the Salvation Army.
  • This is my 17,924th post. That's insane.
