The Campaign For DA


Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

  • Well, we officially have a female on the presidential ballot this Fall.
  • Go back in time less than 100 years: Many states didn't even allow women to vote. It was only in 1920 that the U.S. Constitution was finally amended and ratified to force all states to get with the program. 1920 wasn't that long ago.
  • If you drive over the "old dam" at Lake Bridgeport, you'll see about 15 small whirlpool-like movements in the water. What are they?
  • The Messenger lists 60 new indictments. My quick count revealed 39 of them being for drugs.
  • Ever think softball is boring? In the college world series last night, Auburn came back from a 7-0 deficit to tie it, robbed OU of a game winning home run in one of the most fantastic catches you'll ever see (photos below), and then won it with a grand slam walk off home run in extra innings. A winner take all game is tonight.
  • "Video captured a mother wrestling her daughter from the arms of a would-be kidnapper." Ok, that's weird. It was in the middle of a store. 
  • This seems to be the most volatile time for Trump. Up until now, he's been able to say things that would destroy any conventional candidate. But now he's finally catching some very strong blow back with his "Mexican judge" comments. First crack in the armor or is this a rallying point? (Side note: Angering Hispanics is no way to win an election.)
  • I'm not sure I have ever talked to a single person who watches Game of Thrones.
  • The NBA first game of the season was on October 27, 2015. The season is still going on. For comparison, the Cowboys were only six games into their season on October 27th - a season that ended over five months ago.
  • Conversation in the courthouse yesterday: Doesn't being a long haul trucker sound like a pretty interesting job? You don't have to jack with people, could listen to audiobooks or anything in the world you find interesting, and you get to see the country. 
  • “When Sting died, Sting, according to them, had no will and was worth 300 million dollars or 280 million dollars or something, and had over 1,000 songs that he had not released that he had written. He had all this music to be released!” - New York talk show host Mike Francesa yesterday.
