The Campaign For DA

Random Friday Morning Thoughts



  • So an 18 wheeler hits a bridge near Salado that is under construction and a massive support beam lands directly on the car of an Arlington man and killed him?  Fear and respect the Butterfly Effect.
  • Fox 4 desperately tried to get the deceased guy's mother on tape for interview last night and even promoted it before she refused. Steve Eager, in explaining had they had failed to deliver, had the strangest comment when he told his audience some viewers may be "surprised" that she "wanted" to talk about the incident. It almost came across that he was trying to say, "Some of you idiot viewers might be surprised that a relative would not want to talk about the death of loved one immediately after it happens" but bailed out of it mid-sentence. 
  • Harry Reid has announced he won't seek re-election. I doubt if it is connected to that mysterious eye injury, but I wouldn't rule it out. I wonder if something is going on.
  • Guy arrested after motorcycle chase in Dallas has a pretty cool book-in photo. 
  • The Ticket boys were talking this morning about being packrats -- a habit which may be attributable to just wanting to hold onto memories instead of things.  Junior Miller said that he's tried to not to do that because lately he is trying to "live in the moment."  Mindfulness. 
  • Had the sweetest moment with the Junior In The House last night when she walked through the door and, sensing something was wrong, I asked, "You OK?"  She said "no", sat down, and began to tell me about it. That's probably commonplace to all of you but not to me. 
  • Zayn Malik left One Direction this week. 
  • OK, I was doing a bit there. Never heard of the guy. Don't know any of the band's songs. Just know everyone else was talking about it. 
  • It sounds like Texas basketball coach Rick Barnes will not be fired. Does he have pictures of someone? 
  • Hey, DFW media, there's a story behind this news release from Keller ISD: "In response to recent social media posts regarding 'promposals' at our high school campuses, Keller ISD does not grant permission for any student, regardless of gender, to conduct public prom invitations, or promposals, on campus during the school day. Any previous promposals that have occurred have done so without District approval. Promposals, and other similar public displays, may create a disruption to the academic setting, therefore they are not allowed for any student." I'm not saying an episode of Glee is breaking out, but an episode of Glee might be breaking out

Something is going on with Harry Reid. He is accused of strong-arming Homeland Security to fast track visas for associates of his son in Vegas. Millions changed hands.

Butterfly Effect? I think Judge Cardozo might just call it proximate cause.

Since Zayn left One Direction, are they now going to be called 0.8 Direction?

Did he go another Direction? Why was he going in One Direction in the first place? I'm confused.

Good, who cares. I guess he has stolen enough from the American people

The type of people who want to talk to a reporter right after the death of a loved one need time to get the obligatory 8x10 portrait of the deceased to display in their arms during the entire interview.

Years from now, people will ask, "Do you remember where you were when you heard that Zayn Malik had left One Direction?"

I had the impression that the Butterfly Effect had to do with something really random and insignificant (like a butterfly flapping its wings?) impacting something else, and the chain of events that followed. Not sure if a horrific traffic fatality counts, other than the randomness of the events. Sounds more like negligence - the driver didn't know the height of his load, or the road crew didn't post the correct height limit. Somebody is gonna get sued, and hard, over this.

"Zayn Malik left One Direction... everyone else was talking about it."
Not sure if the Females in the House count as "everyone". Who else have you been hanging out with that concern themselves with anything about One Direction? I would say that you need some guy friends, but your mention of the book-in photo as being pretty cool makes me wonder. Plus, there's the promposal(?) and Glee references. Just try to offset the estrogen overload in your life

When Zayn left, which direction did he go?

I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall when that rubber band broke on Harry's excercise machine and snapped him in the eye. My favorite news story about Harry was when a reporter came up to him as he was walking down the hall and asked him how he got to be a multimillionaire on a senator's salary. His four body guards slammed that reporter up against the wall and told him to get the fuck out of there so fast you would have thought it was preplanned.

Father of a 14-yr-old girl here. She'll probably remember where she was when Zayn left. She said that there were multiple girls crying in the bathroom after the news broke. It was her generation's Beatles breakup. Well, except 1D is going to keep going.

I think they should just embrace it and become a modern-day British Menudo. Once you hit a certain age, you automatically get the boot and a random 16-yr-old British kid replaces you. I'm sure Simon Cowell would agree.

Zayn left one gay boy band to join another gay boy band named One Erection.

Just another of the great liberal role models unable to function in the real world.

I only know One Direction because that YouTube Hooters girl did a hula hoop routine to one of their songs. True greatness!

Is Dirty Harry Reid going to use the bipolar excuse like Jessie Jackson Jr. for retiring? Speaking of Jessie, he got out of prison yesterday about 30 years too early.

I'm willing to bet my eyeteeth that you know all of One Direction's songs, Barry!

Actually, I saw those guys on SNL and the songs weren't horrible. It struck me as odd, however, that they don't dance. I thought boy bands danced?

Nothing new from the Zeta's on Harry Reid, but here's something from 1/7/2015:

This is not the first time that Harry Reid featured a black eye, supposedly from exercise accidents. As the Infinite Unknown spoof drawing shows, it is hard to imagine the arrangement that would result in broken ribs, a smash to the jaw, and a black eye. These are, however, exactly what one expects from being punched out by an assailant. Assassinations of very public figures are inhibited because too many questions, and investigations, result. The Speaker of the Senate Majority or Minority certainly qualifies. Reid does not capitulate to threats, so his bruises are intended to be a warning to those who might be inclined to follow his lead.--Zetatalk

Of course the pictures in the screensaver will include all the pictures of the loved ones the demented or other wish to talk to. They just touch the picture of the one they want to call and talk to. No spam allowed niether.

The collective consciousness at this nearly exact moment wants this: A virtual stripper that dances to the music you are currently listening to.

"A spark of genius" is nothing more than being in-tune with the collective consciousness.
