The Campaign For DA


Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

  • So the Affluenza kid got caught because they ordered a pizza via cell phone in Mexico? Buddy, just walk down the road and eat a taco. 
  • The Tarrant County DA was smart to hold a news conference. Juvenile probation law is incredibly complicated. At this point the best she can do to that kid is not revoke the probation as a juvenile, get him transferred to an adult court, keep the probation going to 2024 with a condition he spend a few months in county jail. Like I said, incredibly complicated.  
  • I'm beginning to believe this affluenza defense. With idiot parents like that, the kid never had a chance. 
  • I'm going to spend two and a half hours on an Amtrak train today, and I'm very excited about it. 
  • In a bizarre game, Baylor beat a very good North Carolnia team last night by running the ball for 645 yards. That's the most ever in any bowl game in the history of bowl game ever. And it was done without their top two quarterbacks, best receiver, and best running back. 
  • Oklahoma's quarterback took a verbal shot at TCU because of the way he believes he was treated during the recruiting process when he was in high school. TCU coach Gary Patterson fired back and I do mean fired. “If he wanted to blame TCU for 128 BCS schools not offering him a scholarship, that’s fine,” Patterson said. “But ask Kliff Kingsbury why he didn’t offer him a scholarship at Texas Tech. Ask about Baker’s dad. He’s an arrogant guy who thinks he knows everything. If people knew the whole story, they might not have a great opinion of Baker or his father.” Good lord. 
  • For Christmas, Mrs  LL got me a rope bracelet with a porcelain plate on it.  That small plate has GPS coordinates on it. And where do they go to?: A particular place in the jungle of Costa Rica.
  • Trump now says he will spend money on advertising and is prepared to spend a lot of money on ads targeting any candidate who attacks him. Genius.   
  • The Philadelphia Eagles coach was shockingly fired yesterday.  That team has been bad, he has made nutty decisions, but the firing was unexpected  If UT is not scrambling to hire him, then I don't know UT.  And it would be a great hire.
  • These are actual tweets from our Governer "1/2: I'm accusing Texas State Bar of religious discrimination for denying continuing education credit for Christian legal ethics programs" "2/2: The Texas State Bar leaders should be compelled to read my winning arguments upholding the Ten Commandments & One Nation Under God".  There's so much wrong with this but I can't get passed "compelled". Ok, My Fuher!
  • Tea Party darling Jon Stickland used to look for people to smoke "da green" with. At least according to  his cyber past was discovered according to a column today in the Star-Telegram. And you know what? It won't hurt him a bit. As that column says, nothing is normal about politics these days.
  • My technical issues continue.
