The Campaign For DA

Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • I know someone who will be pleased with this pic: Bacon.
  • Dear Sweet The Ticket: Two straight segments on hockey on Friday during Bob and Dan? That has to be paid for and mandated by management. And an absolute way to kill your station. "Cumulus - The Power of Radio."
  • I had a refrigerator delivered and they took out the old and put in the new in about five minutes. They charged me $15 to take away the old one. Guys, I would have paid $150. Or more. 
  • I could stare at Lake Bridgeport forever
  • So what is up with that new "Majestic" sign on the Wise County square?
  • I've got into a habit of taking The Family Pups to work on Friday and it makes the office incredibly happy. 
  • A local attorney, who refers to himself as "The Decatur Hammer" (comedy), reminded me of an event in my life  almost 20 years ago. I was leaving Colonial Country Club during the tournament with two buddies in the car. My phone rang and my VERY high tone girlfriend chewed me out for some reason. I then hung up and began talking about how much I really despised her. After five minutes one of my buddies looked down at my phone and points. I had not hung up. The phone was still on. Oh, my! I picked it up and meekly, praying that she had hung up, and said, "Honey? Baby?" I then hear, "UH HUH!" Man, I paid for that. 
  • If I lose as running as an Independent, I might search for something else -- in two years. Right out of House of Cards.
  • This is Opening Day and probably the only day I will care about baseball. 
  • It begins: "Charges dismissed against dozens of Waco bikers, lawyer says."  The DA implies that he is simply going to refine the charges but I bet this is the beginning of the end. You can "amend" an indictment without dismissing it. Or maybe he isn't smart enough to know that. This will be a disaster. 
  • Baylor has announced a home and home with BYU a few years out. I told Mrs. LL, "Darlin' we are going to Utah!"
  • My goal in life is to live it in incognito. I went to Lowe's this weekend and a sweet clerk looked at me and said, "Oh, you are back!" And I had a cap and glasses on. 
  • Early last Friday morning Cumulus ran three ads in 20 minutes on The Ticket to convince us that radio is thriving and perfect for advertising. That means they couldn't find anyone to buy those spots. 
  • I winked at someone on Friday. I never wink.
  • Trump will not rule out running as a third party candidate. Game. Changer.
  • Mrs. LL went out in the kayak this weekend . . . and then dropped her phone in the lake. 
  • There is no way Amtrak has lost over a billion dollars for five straight years.  Those numbers cannot be right.
  • Over 100,000? Idiocracy . . .
