The Campaign For DA

Random Monday Morning Thoughts




  • Thats a big . . . wave.
  • We had a little niece over for the weekend. She nicknamed me "Mr. Grumpy Pants." Out of the mouth of babes.
  • I went to funeral this weekend and tearfully whispered into a lady's ear who had had lost her elderly mother, "I know this pain." Her concurring response: "There is nothing like this to make you feel like an eight year old." That sums it up perfectly. 
  • I hardly watch any TV anymore. 
  • When I was a kid my parents took us to an all night outdoor play about the Easter story. Everyone was on a sloped hill and brought tents and sleeping bags. They timed the resurrection scene  to occur at sunrise. I think it was in Oklahoma. I slept through most of it. 
  • The NFL took on the New York Times who destroyed them. One of the greatest lines from dad was: "Never pick a fight with someone who buys paper by the ton and ink by the gallon."
  • Driver crashes into house in metroplex. Photo. Man, wouldn't that scare you to death?
  • There was a small plane crash in Stephenville which injured a father and son because they ran out of fuel. Dear pilot: You are not smart.
  • Note to self: Never tell your wife on Saturday morning that her hair looks awful and she might want to grab a cap.
  • Rhome mayor tells the police chief he has resigned for not showing up for work without permission. Chief says no. Now the city council holds a quick meeting to rescind the mayor's proclamation. Things are going great down there. (Side note: Fort Worth growth is headed that way. Take a look at at the development around the Saginaw cutoff. You think any big business wants to go into Rhome with this chaos?)
  • One odd thing about criminal law. If you want to appeal a case, you have to pay the court reporter to prepare the transcript. I'm not pointing fingers -- it has always been that way. But I find that so odd. 
  • I never realized ducks go under the water. And, man, they can under there forever!
  • Mrs. LL wants to buy a boat. My response: "No."
  • A tweet by MADD: "We NEED #ignitioninterlocks in ALL 50 states. Donate by 03/31 $50 for 50."  Has that organization turned into a scam for money?
  • Very odd: "A Texas Department of Public Safety Highway Patrol Trooper died in a one-vehicle crash on Saturday night in Lamar County. In a press release, officials said that at about 11:00 p.m. Saturday, Trooper Jeffrey Nichols was driving westbound on FM 38, about half of mile north of County Road 35450, when he lost control of his patrol car and crashed into a tree. Nichols died at the scene."
  • Batman vs. Superman got awful reviews and still pulled in $170 million in its opening weekend.
