Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • Breaking news about the dumbest Cowboy there is. Allegations are he punched a bouncer at the club Clutch
    "Who, me?"
  • One TCU student and a recent graduate of Missouri were killed on Lake Palo Pinto over the weekend in a Jet Ski accident. (Sounds like it was in the middle of the night.)
  • If you didn't see Ann Coulter throwing a Twitter hissy fit because she didn't get her assigned seat on a Delta flight, you should. By last count, she fired off 19 tweets because she was so upset (including one of a picture of the person who ended up in "her" seat and saying she had "dachshund legs.") It took a great turn when Delta responded to her letting her know that they would refund her $30. 
  • There's one Dennis Prager fan out there, and the rest of you don't know who he is. I've been dogging Prager for years because he's a simpleton, and he didn't disappoint this weekend: 
  • The only person dumber than Trump may be his lawyers,  After one goes on a profane filled email rant, another one, Jay Sekulow, was on ABC News' This Week and said this about the Trump Jr. meeting with the Russian lawyer: “If this was nefarious, why’d the Secret Service allow these people in? The president had Secret Service protection at that point. That raised a question with me.” The Secret Service immediately fired back and called him a liar. 
  • Gordon Keith of The Ticket made a great point about Trump this morning: "He's the most American president we've ever had. He acts like us."
  • Fox News' Shepard Smith to Fox News' Chris Wallace about the Trump Administration: "The deception, Chris, is mind-boggling . . . . why are we getting told all these lies?" Wallace: "I don't know what to say."
  • Mrs. LL threw out chicken feed this weekend. Then we had two gangs of geese show up for a fight for it It wasn't pretty.:
  • Lockheed Martin will hire 1,800 more workers for the F-35 (which price just increased). Hot opinion: In this day of drone warfare, do we need the F-35? 
  • Mrs. LL and I went to Top Golf on Friday. Two thoughts: (1) It was an absolute scene and a blast, and (2) Their overhead has to be insane. And Mrs. LL, who has never swung a golf club, was really, really good. For any of you married guys, can you imagine giving golfing lessons (head still, left arm straight, transfer your weight, bend at the knees, this is how you grip it, relax) and your wife listening? She did. I kept waiting for the, "I'll do it if you'll stop talking."
  • Who wears it better: North Korean generals or Sheriff David Clarke?: 
  • Former Longhorn D'Onta Foreman was arrested for allegedly possessing weed and a gun. If the facts are what his lawyer says, he's home free. (And that's a very smart lawyer.) Question: How many Texans are possessing a handgun and/or weed at this moment?
  • Shout out to the commentor who picked up my Pulp Fiction joke last week. (It was in my Blue Apron bullet point.)
  • A church in Chico burned down. The pastor says they need stuff: 
  • Is there any more meaningless stat for a pitcher that won/loss records? I.e. Nolan Ryan and Yu Darvish. 
  • The eldest Bush's letter to W. I miss them both.
