The Campaign For DA


Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • Two trains collided head on in Germany this morning killing at least 10. How does that happen?
  • On vacation as a kid in San Francisco (cue orchestra music), we went to the Winchester Mansion. Maybe the most fascinating place ever. The widow of the gun guy believed that so long as she continued to add on to her home she would never die. 
  • I don't have any trouble with Cam Newton's short answers in the post loss press conference at the Super Bowl. I'll take honest feelings over canned answers any day.
  • I've not yet seen any one "open carry" a handgun yet.
  • It always takes me about five minutes to realize how mad I am about something that happened. It happened yesterday.
  • Johnny Manziel may be a nut, but I bet his girlfriend is a nut as well.
  • His girlfriend obtained a "Protective Order".  Look, I bet I've seen a hundred women ask for one in the Wise County Attorney's Office over the years. Unlike  most court documents, those are truly just a "piece of paper." It means nothing. If a guy is crazy enough to assault you, an 8 1/2" X 11" white sheet will not stop them. 
  • Baylor students protested outside the home of Kenneth Starr about allegations of sexual assault by the football team. I don't know if the allegations are true, but I love the irony that the target is Kenneth Starr. How many millions did he cost you back in the day? 
  • When I was watching Beyonce at the Super Bowl do one of "moves" I fired off a "good lord!" Mrs. LL fired back, "You do far worse with those Random Thought Girls!" Good point.
  • The dumbest politician in Texas is Konni Burton. Cluesless. Pure clueless. (And to beat Jonathon Stickland in this category takes a lot.)
  • Rubio might be a robot. 
  • If we don't have a hard freeze to kill off all the pollen, Mrs. LL and I might die of sneezing.
  • Every year around this time there will be a ton of radio ads for berries and pajamas. But this morning the pajama ad ran and said there was a "hidden secret" in the back. 
  • 7th grader in the house to me this morning: "I've got to be at school at 6:00 tomorrow because I made the softball team."
