The Campaign For DA

6.08.2015

Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • Some high ranking prosecutors in the Waco's DA's office have abruptly left. Smart move. You don't want to be associated with the upcoming Twin Peak's Biker cases. Edit: Old story. That's a bang up start for me for the week. 
  • Talk radio's Mark Davis angrily tried to defend the McKinney police officer this morning. He had to stop himself so many times because even he couldn't believe what he was saying. Example: "Ok, so she was 14. So like age is now supposed to play a factor with the way the police deal with someone . . . well, you don't treat a six year old like an adult, but . . . ."). He's on an a sad island on this one.
  • The War on Police is kind of like The War on Christmas. Non-existent.
  • Ex-Baylor great and WNBA star Brittney Griner filed for an annulment of her marriage to fellow WNBA player Glory Johnson over the weekend, one day after Johnson announced that she was expecting a child and less than one month after they were married.  Can we make this a Lifetime movie?
  • We will have the same sex Supreme Court opinion in the next two weeks. But it may be issued on the very last day of its term since they like to end it with a bang. 
  • Weather talk: Saturday was brutal. It might have only been in the 90s but, with no wind and massive humidity, it was a beating. 
  • A lady was almost killed (literally) by a flying broken bat at Fenway Park. (Photo of aftermath with husband and son in background.)
  • I'm not going to admit that I'm still working on my softball backstop project, but I'm still working on it. I'm not sure what it was like to invent the wheel, but I'm beginning to get a good idea. But it's looking pretty impressive. I said looks. It has not yet been tested.
  • "Boyd, Texas – A North Richland Hills, Texas man turned himself into authorities and was charged with third degree felony theft of livestock and second degree felony theft of livestock from the elderly on May 4 after stealing 144 head of cattle from two North Texas ranchers." A couple of Wise County law enforcement names in that press release.
  • The X-Games from Austin were on ESPN this weekend. It is so Idiocracy, but I bet it will overtake the Olympics some day. They had some crazy motorcycle jump competition yesterday which basically turned into "Will the next guy die?"
  • We had a Triple Crown winner this weekend for the first time in 1978, and I don't think anyone cares. 
  • I would bring you a front page but my source went dark today posting only this where normally every newspaper's front page would be:
