The Campaign For DA

Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • On Friday, there were were 123 more DPS Troopers in Texas. 
  • Liberally Lean curse: On Friday I said the Baylor Scandal had become a dumpster fire. On Friday, there was an actual dumpster fire in Southlake. 
  • Billy Bob from Varsity Blues died on Friday.  (Side note: The girl in the whipped cream scene from that movie is now 40 years old and still very hot.) 
  • We've got another just-six-months-in-jail sexual assault story. This time it comes from Alabama and involves a state trooper. 
  • "A 23-year-old Fort Worth man was found not guilty this week in the fatal shooting of an aspiring rapper in the parking lot of an Arlington sports bar two years ago." Two things: (1) Both defense lawyers are former prosecutors and one of the them left after the new administration took over, (2) This case involving a shooting outside of a club with no scientific evidence. The not guilty verdict demonstrates the problem that exists with all the  Waco Twin Peaks bikers prosecution.
  • I went to Benihana yesterday. It's like Panda Express on acid.
  • Hasbro has created a "Chewbacca Mom" action figure. Will we ever get rid of her?
  • Today is the first day of Summer and a full moon.  I don't know the significance of that but it is pretty rare. I tried to look up dates for the last time and the next time it will happen, but I came across a story that said it depends on what time zone you are in. That gave me Tired Head so I abandoned the search. 
  • It took a game seven with historical consequences, but I finally watched 1/2 of one game of an NBA game last night. CBS News said President Obama stayed 10 minutes longer on Air Force One after landing to watch the end of the game.
  • Three years ago Skip Bayless tweeted: "Johnny Football will one day be bigger in Cleveland than his buddy LeBron ever was."
  • Some guy in the Liberally Lean Pick 'Em tournament a few years back received an autographed Lebron James jersey that a buddy gave to me to give away as a prize. I think it was a Cleveland jersey. 
  • “Hey, you want to hit the papers tomorrow? Let’s get that horse. I’ll ride that horse. The problem is, even if I make it, they’ll say I fell off the horse and it was terrible.” - Donald Trump at Gilley's in Dallas last week when he confused the mechanical bull with a mechanical horse.
  • "These 50 Sodomites [in Orlando] were all perverts and pedophiles and they are the scum of the earth and the earth is a little bit better place now, and I’ll even take it a little further I heard on the news today that there are still several dozen of these queers in ICU and I will pray that God will finish the job that that man started" - Fort Worth Pastor Donnie Romero of Stedfast Baptist Church. (The place looks like it might have a salad bar.)

  • He also has hot religious opinions regarding today's churches: "[Our] church is old-fashioned, has traditional music, and is King James Bible only! The new evangelical movement in America has been a complete disaster. The worldly, rock and roll, contemporary-style churches are not getting the job done when it comes to preaching the Gospel to every creature, teaching Bible doctrine, and preaching hard against sin. We do not pattern our church after these trendy social clubs. Stedfast Baptist Church stands for the old paths and zero compromise preaching." He should trademark "Preaching Hard". That's pretty catchy.
  • A thought: If you asked a male under 25 what King James refers to do you think they would refer to a version of the Bible or Lebron?
  • Fox 4's Jenny Anchondo got married over the weekend. Any "Hey, Nows" in this pic?
  • Top 10 in alcohol sales in DFW in April: (1) Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center $1.87 million. (2) American Airlines Center $1.31 million, (3) Toyota Stadium $1.14 million, (4)  Happiest Hour $1.07 million, (5) Hilton Anatole Hotel $1.06 million, (6) Globe Life Park $969,162, (7) Omni Dallas Hotel $967,354, (8) AT&T Stadium $837,251, (9) Varsity Tavern $727,472. (Source)  Happiest Hour is near Uptown. Varsity Tavern is in Fort Worth.
  • I pulled the following data for March in Decatur. I guess Bono's in not in the city limits:
