The Campaign For DA

Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • I go away for a week and Donald Trump single handedly sends the Republican Party into oblivion? (But I can't wait to see the new poll numbers.)
  • Cue the orchestra music, but walking five miles into a jungle and not seeing a soul is one of my life's greatest joys. (Whenever I left at the crack of dawn, I'd leave an email for Mrs. LL as to where I was going with the subject line reading "Coroner Info".)
  • I also drank water out of a fresh spring river and then became violently sick for a day and half. But staying all that time in bed, which I loathed, might have been the greatest blessing in disguise I could have received. 
  • I became an odd fan of Kermit Tyler on my vacation -- a plaque I read said he was "abused by history". 
  • I watched last year's Baylor/TCU game on Fox Sports Southwest's "No Huddle" yesterday. I'll say it again: I have no idea how Baylor won that. And that may be one of the greatest games ever. 
  • Random British Open Moment from this morning: Phil Mickelson hit a ball onto a hotel balcony. Photo. Video.
  • Dallas Cowboy play by play man Brad Sham will miss the opening game due to a Jewish holiday. (He's either very faithful or wants a "look at me" moment.)
  • I almost had a heart attack when I saw that George Will wrote a column suggesting that the Goofy Twittering Texas Supreme Court Justice should get a nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court. (Side note: George Will is great on TV but an incomprehensible writer.) 
  • Same sex marriage has been legal for about a month and the world didn't end. 
  • There has been an insane number of ATM thefts in Dallas over the last few weeks but it went over the top last night when one was stolen from the Angelika.
  • The hook-up-while married site AshleyMadison.com was hacked overnight. (Everyone walk away. Nothing to see here. Nothing to see here.)
  • Tarrant County DA Sharen Wilson celebrated on Twitter an anniversary of Apollo 11 by posting a photo with her name next to Neil Armstrong's foot print.  (Who is her PR person?) 
  • I let the soon to be Senior In The House (groan!) download some music on my laptop. One of her choices: Frank Sinatra's Fly Me To The Moon. Attagirl!
  • A new photo of Pluto that I can't get out of my mind. 
  • I watched a ton of sunsets over the last week, and I appreciated every single second and moment.
