Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • Some kid allegedly brought edible weed to Seven Hills Elementary in Wise County.
  • I loved the Dick Van Dyke show with Mary Tyler Moore. I couldn't get enough of the re-runs as a kid. And it was a very smart comedy which still holds up. 
  • But I never really watched the Mary Tyler Moore Show. Side note: Does Fox 4's Steve Eagar have a little Ted Baxter in him? 
  • Any of my email addresses that end with wisecounty.com have been down for about a week. They got the website back up but not the email. Verio is a horrible hosting company.
  • Did you see the Fed Ex truck get hit by a train. It seems like Fed Ex trucks are always in wrecks -- especially in icy weather. 
  • If you think Trump is going to build a wall and Mexico is going to pay for it "one way or another", I feel very sorry for your naivety. (Heck, the government can't ever complete construction of I-35.)
  • I thought Republicans hated edicts via Executive Orders
  • A guy beat up his lawyer for losing a child custody case. And the lawyer seemed more concerned about his coffee. 
  • Radio talk show host and Trump apologist Mark Davis yesterday: "This should also be settled: waterboarding is not torture."  I've heard of people supporting torture in some situations but I've never heard anyone say waterboarding isn't torture. 
  • "The release of a Fort Worth police dash cam video of an officer-involved shooting was 'fully within the letter of the law,' Tarrant County District Attorney Sharen Wilson wrote Wednesday in a letter to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. Wilson was responding to a complaint filed with Paxton’s office Tuesday by the Combined Law Enforcement Associations of Texas . . . . " She's right. And it's amazing anyone would complain -- especially law enforcement. 
  • An aspiring actor from Fort Worth committed suicide on Facebook Live earlier this week?
