Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • Mrs. LL is having an "eye" issue. (Meaning, one eye only.) Without depth perception, I don't trust her driving (as if I did to start with.) Anyway, that means I've been Driving Miss Daisy around everywhere. 
  • So many questions: "AUSTIN — Attorney General Ken Paxton's pastor has sued the lead witnesses against him in his upcoming criminal trials [claiming they] bilked him out of about a half-million dollars." First question: How many half-millions can a pastor have?
  • If you get charged with murder because of an incident at some place called "Tiger Caberet" in Dallas at 4:00 a.m. then your life may have gone horribly wrong. (Especially if you shoot at another man and accidentally kill your own girlfriend.)

  • Students at Notre Dame walked out on the Vice President's commencement address. #Resist. 
  • Trump went to Saudi Arabia over the weekend. Fifteen of the eighteen 9/11 attackers were from Saudi. We all just ignore that for some reason. 
  • And Trump and Tillerson dancing with swords amongst Muslims is a scene I won't forget. It  probably won't go over well with his base.(Some put the scene to the music of Rock the Casbah but I'm too lazy to link to it. 
  • And I could go on all day but let me end with this: Remember when the GOP went nuts over the Clinton Foundation? Well, this happened. 
  • Ok, I lied. One more: 

  • I'm worried about the messaging of FBC of Dallas. "Reigniting" indeed. 
  • I jumped into the middle of Better Call Saul, but it's good. 
  • The U.S. Attorney decides not to re-prosecute John Wiley Price. That office, that prosecution, and this "save face" press release (that was, of course, issued on dead news Friday) are all disasters. 
  • Both of these people have served the same time in the military. And only one of them plagarized  a portion their thesis. 
  • I've never seen The Princess Bride.
