Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • I'm surprised that more people weren't killed by being trampled in Manchester. Horrible.
  • I'm not sure I've ever seen a person get crushed on Twitter as badly as this freelance writer out of Boston last night after he wrote this:
  • I bet security for the upcoming U2 show in the metroplex just got ramped up.
  • The Eighth Grader is Back in the House after her trip, and Mrs. LL is still down to one eye. You know what that means? I'm putting in more miles than an Uber driver. 
  • It won't interest many of you but the Supreme Court yesterday basically killed patent lawsuit forum shopping. People who are interested are metroplex patent lawyers, and the people of Marshall, Texas which has become the epicenter of patent litigation. 
  • Aren't you proud of me for not even posting the Trump's wife refusing to hold his hand in public?
  • The Fort Worth officer charged with Aggravated Assault took the stand in his own defense yesterday. I'm doubling down: A not guilty verdict is coming. 
  • Bridgeport's speed zones on 380 that go from 70 to 60 to 45 to 40 to 45 and then to 65 give visitors the impression that the town is a speed trap. 
  • Talked to someone about the Amazon warehouse in Haslet the other day and he shot down some of the negatives I've heard. He says if show up on time, be responsible, and do your job that you will promoted in record time. 
  • The Denton County Sheriff fired off some hot opinions on Facebook after yesterday's terrorist attack in England. Auditioning for Fox News? And what are odds he gets an appearance for this?
  • Very random Texas high school football note: Lamesa, which is looking for a coach, has lost 54 of 55.
  • The Texas driver surcharge program, which has led to more people driving on suspended licenses than ever before, survived yet another battle to repeal it yesterday. 
  • Sir Roger Moore has passed away.
