Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • In case you missed it, DPS reversed its policy of charging counties and cities for their drug/blood testing. Our Sheriff might have played a greater roll in that than anyone knows. 
  • Mrs. LL and I watched an hour show (Reelz channel?) recounting the life of Anna Nicole Smith. That was one wheels off life. 
  • Adrian Beltre got his 3,000 hit yesterday, and I know people who went there to see it. I hate baseball but I had a buddy drag me to see Nolan Ryan's 5,000th strikeout, It it was fantastic experience.  (One odd thing: I think I was more excited to see a CNN live feed in the corridor after it happened.)
  • Trump, over the weekend, proved again he is not smart man: "When you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon. You see them thrown in rough. I said, 'Please don't be too nice." My head is spinning. Two thoughts: (1) "Paddy wagon"? (2) Should police  abandon their policy of putting their hand on someone's head as they get in the police car and they tell them, "Be careful."
  • There's a story over the weekend about drug use and West Texas oil field workers. It's true. 
  • It's all funny until he gives a clear indication that he might bomb a country to get the attention away from his scandals. Wag the Dog. 
  • (For faithful readers, I'm waiting on the "Stay Woke" commentor")
  • Mrs. LL, thanks to a comment, learned she could feed humming birds (or is it "hummingbirds"?) by hand. Video. And she created her own water solution for them. 
  • Go back and watch Knocked Up. Quality comedy.
  • One thing I wasn't prepared for is that when kids get older they get smarter. Smarter than you were prepared for.
  • Goofy former Presidential candidate and former pastor Mike Huckabee (father of the stand in press secretary)  said this on Fox News yesterday about Trump's new Chief of Staff: "If you’ve got four stars on your shoulder, you’re not a slow learner.  You didn’t ride the short bus." He later apologized
  • I had no idea there was a company at Lake Bridgeport which rented pontoon and other boats (at a shocking rate, in my opinion). I'm guessing it is people from the metroplex. Not a bad business concept.
  • Is this real or Fake News? Did a B-25 crash into the Empire State Building in 1945? All of your Jeopardy dollars are now on the line as your prepare to answer.
  • There is no front page of a newspaper today. Instead I want everyone, at least those in Wise County, to read the post below.
