The Campaign For DA


Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • "Mom accused of being drunk, dumping baby near Arlington creek." She had been acting crazy for over a week. I'm guessing there is more than alcohol involved.
  • Let me check where the "Kevin Durant to sign with Warriors" news is on my radar . . . Nope . . . Can't find it.
  • If you drink half of a Five Hour Energy drink do you get full energy for 2.5 hours or 1/2 full energy for five hours?
  • Headless body. Naked. Floating Off Sound Padre Island. Cocaine. Cash. "How a South Texas murder mystery led investigators to a US Border Patrol agent"
  • After first issuing e-coli warnings for the Trinity River at Panther Island, authorities gave the all clear signal yesterday. Let me tell you something. I wouldn't get in the Trinity River if you provided me proof that the entire body of water had been boiled and purified. 
  • "Georgia newspaper publisher jailed over open records request." This story really is amazing. And the ridiculous arrest was apparently spearheaded by a judge who was the focus of the request. “I don’t react well when my honesty is questioned,” the judge said. Poor baby. 
  • Speaking of, the Montague County DA has still not released the records associated with the killing of a man and the Wise County Sheriff's Office drug dog. Why not? 
  • Someone said yesterday that Bill O'Reilly doesn't make any money off of his Killing books -- that it all goes to charity. I seriously question a claim that O'Reilly would do something without personal benefit. I found where he told the New York Post that all royalties go to charity but, even if true, that's far different than not receiving any money due to the slapping of his name on the book. I mean, he could cut a deal for a $1 million advance with a royalty of .000001%. 
  • I appreciate a couple of you pointing out that what I heard at Twin Hills during the Fourth was not like the sounds of Syria. I must have been delirious when I wrote that. I would, however, like to point out you need to discern between literal speech and figurative speech. Or, as Sgt. Hulka would say, "Lighten up, Francis."
  • I'm finished with Season One of Game of Thrones. Get me that baby dragon!!!
  • Hillary and the President will travel on Air Force One today to a campaign stop for Hillary. I always thought it was weird that a President could use the plane during his campaign for re-election but this gets ramped up with the "she's the Secretary of State" excuse. 
  • In the middle of the night last night a car was reportedly swept off the road into Turtle Creek in the Highland Park area. (He called 311 beforehand saying that the water was rising.) As of this morning, they can't find the guy or even the car. That's weird. It's Turtle Creek. Not the Mississippi. (First responders, oddly, have already gone through a shift change.)
  • There were four drownings in area lakes over the weekend.
  • At 10:00 last night, The Rest of the Family in the House was blowing crap up outside while I was in the bed with trembling dogs. What's wrong with that picture?
  • Donald Trump now says it was a sheriff's badge and not the Star of David in his tweet making fun of Hillary. The Internet then responded with a ton of these pictures 
  • With my renewed past-time of fishing, I'm now concerned with the size of treble hooks. If a fish swallows one of those, you're screwed. Not as badly as the fish, but screwed nonetheless.
