The Campaign For DA

Random Friday Morning Thoughts



  • I wonder if Dave Campbell's Texas Football has already gone to press? If they had Art Briles on the cover, they have to be pulling their hair out.
  • So far, it looks like only Briles is out at Baylor. That leaves a Top 10 team coming back this fall with defensive coach Phil Bennett (now interim coach) and offensive coordinator, Briles' son, still intact. You would know who would be a great head coach who (1) is available now, (2) would bring instead credibility back, and (3) would be the perfect "caretaker" to a machine that is already built?: Mack Brown. Considering the fact he is still not pleased about the way UT treated him in the end, he might just do it. 
  • "Last night moody county south dakota. 21 heifers killed dead after lightning hit the metal bale feeder." Photo.
  • A few weeks back the "Austin City Council passed a number of regulations targeting ridesharing companies like Uber and Lyft" which caused the companies to pull out. Why? Aren't any regulations ultimately unenforceable? After all, Uber is nothing more than one private person agreeing to give a ride to another private person. 
  • Did you know that Bill Murray just didn't show up to play in the Colonial Pro Am. He was hired by new sponsor Dean & Deluca.  What a great gig. 
  • President Obama embraced at survivor of Hiroshima in Hiroshima this morning. He later wrote in a guestbook: "Let us now find the courage, together, to spread peace, and pursue a world without nuclear weapons." No nuclear weapons? Is he crazy? Keep reading . . . 
  • "My central arms control objective has been to reduce substantially, and ultimately to eliminate, nuclear weapons and rid the world of the nuclear threat." - Ronald Reagan, March 24, 2016 1984.
  • Chris Berman will leave ESPN after the end of the NFL season. It's like a Christmas present in May!
  • The Gaylord Texas opens up its water park today. Entrance price is literally "get a room". 
  • I missed this headline in the Bridgeport Index: "BISD Will Follow Federal Transgender Guidelines".
  • I posted a link to a story about the Wimberley flooding yesterday. This morning the county is in a flash flood warning. (To the east, over a foot of rain has fallen over the last 24 hours.)
  • Decatur High School's graduation three days after Memorial Day seems late.

I think Abraham Lincoln said the same thing. I read it on the internet.

No respectable HC is anywhere close to coming to my beloved Baylor for several reasons:
Baylor is about to endure NCAA investigation
Baylor is going to have to release this years FB signees
Baylor self admitted at least SIX Title IX failures (Feds get involved)
Baylor will lose scholarships
Baylor players will probably be offered a transfer release with no penalty
The PH report alleges steroid use and payment of players
AND
I highly doubt that Lebby (Briles son in law) or his son Kendal remain in place, much less a few other coaches who it will be discovered were complicit and even participated in the actions that lead to Briles' firing.

I read we already had 2 de-commitments yesterday and that current player KD Cannon has declared he will not suit up for Baylor again.

See ya FB! I'd much rather have my university represent the exemplary traditions that lead me to attend Baylor in the first place. Briles is nuclear and he left a trail of destruction behind.

huge impromptu Memorial Day barbecue bash in Moody County, South Dakota


Maj. Jack D. Ripper : Mandrake, do you recall what Clemenceau once said about war?
Capt. Lionel Mandrake : No, I don't think I do, sir, no.
Maj. Ripper : He said war was too important to be left to the generals. When he said that, 50 years ago, he might have been right. But today, war is too important to be left to politicians. They have neither the time, the training, nor the inclination for strategic thought.

Major TJ 'King' Kong : Well, boys, I reckon this is it - nuclear combat toe-to-toe with the Rooskies... I reckon you wouldn't even be human being if you didn't have some pretty strong personal feelings about nuclear combat.

Unfortunately Briles is, was, and has been dirty. If you can overlook ridiculous infractions, poor moral decision-making, and common decency...you can win some football games with him. Sounds like a perfect candidate to replace Charlie Strong.

Nuclear weapons have brought "peace in our time". We have not had a major war since the threat of nuclear war have hanged over civilized nations. Before nuclear weapons "minor" wars were commonplace, which many times resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people.

DISD scheduling is crazy throughout the year. This happens every year....all the districts start on the same day in August and DISD ends the year a week later than everyone else. Catch a clue DISD!

I wish Chris Berman well but hope I never again have to watch him swing a golf club and waddle down the fairway.

Why has this incident led you to abandon Facebook...what they have to do with it?

Speaking of not showing up and headlines--I just wonder what the headlines will be just before and after the Trump/Sanders debate. What a gutless pile of flotsam Hillary has shown herself to be.
I believe even the hyphenated, jewish princess that runs the DNC will be awol for comment.
Trump has his faults for sure--but strategical marksmanship for placing his enemies in the crosshairs is not one of them.
Savoring it to say the least.

I am not Sam.

What did flotsam ever do to you?

Today the Bag of Nothing guy opened his blog with 16 straight bullet points concerning the Baylor situation. Yep, the loudest guy in the room is also the weakest. He should change his handle to Gas-Bag of Nothing.

Did you read his comment about a personal experience with Briles when he was a high school player? Maybe that influenced his response to the firing.

You're an idiot

Uber is selling, not giving, a ride to another person. If they were giving, then no laws, no rules, no problem. Which is why prostitution as a crime is so crazy. You can give your body away to as many people you want for free; or trade for it, or marry for it, or do just about anything else including selling in some places in the U.S. and most places in the world; and yet ask someone for five dollars for it in Texas and you are arrested and so forth. While a hooker is being arrested in a hotel bar for soliciting an undercover officer, another person can be standing in the same hotel lobby passing out a room number and invitations for a free "do me" party, including giving one to the arresting officer, and that's legal.

Does it seem disingenuous that the Wise County Crime Report reports an underage drinking party on Road 1325 where the two hosts came to jail and a parent thanks said host for watching out for her baby girl? I think she's putting sunscreen on the child. Not my idea of watching out for kids.
