Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

  • A federal judge has dismissed Sarah Palin's lawsuit against the New York Times. If you don't understand "reckless disregard for the truth" vs. "negligence" in the area of libel, you don't need to be commenting on it.
  • I can't think of anything more painful than Larry The Cable Guy and Jeff Foxworthy together. They call the show the "Backyard Barbecue." This news is the only good thing that Harvey has brought to the State of Texas. (Although it's hard to understand how Hurricane Harvey has anything to do with this.)
  • Justice Don Willett, the "aww shucks" tweeting Texas Supreme Court judge, thought it would be a good idea to do "water comedy" late yesterday as Texas was suffering from disasterous flooding at that very moment. He is up for election next year.  
  • In other parts of Texas at the same time: 

  • I've never been to a Texas high school volleyball game but have seen some videos. The level of talent and excitement seems really cool. (Although I can never get use to the term "kills" when describing scores.)
  • The First Lady did in fact remove her six inch stilettos before arriving in Texas. But she did put on a "FLOTUS" hat. Read that term out loud. Think about why they were visiting. 
  • The photo below is of a new generation Bentley. I'll swear that Mrs. LL and I saw a Rolls Royce on 114 right outside of Trophy Club that looked just like it. It caught her attention as she said, "That's a cool car!" (She never mentions cars.)
  • We had a doggie emergency in the house last night. Family Pup #2 start shaking and panting uncontrollably and would not stop. Mrs. LL took her to the vet, and he diagnosed it as her teeth were decaying, causing pain, and she was going into panic attacks. This will cost me to fix it. I'll pay it. 
  • I appreciate anyone who donates to great causes (like Harvey relief). I don't appreciate people bragging about it. When you pray, you go into your closet and pray alone. 
  • I get complaints that Liberally Lean isn't as "fun" or "light hearted" as it used to be. Watching Idiocracy in this country unfold right before your eyes will do that to you.
