Random Friday Morning Thoughts

  • Once again proving I'm a legal genius, I told you the TRO on the Robert E. Lee statue would be dissolved by the federal judge in Dallas. It was. I don't know why it was even granted in the first place. 
  • The statue controversy is not about "owning slaves", it is about being a leader of an insurrection against the United States of America. 
  • Former Ranger Derek Holland has been released by the White Sox. I've thought he was moron ever since he did his (horrible) Harry Caray impersonation in the dugout during a World Series game. Any team can assume his contract if they are willing to pay to White Sox $1. Yep, $1. There will be no takers.
  • If you want to see some folks at Winstar almost die, you've got to check out this from BagOfNothing. Good, lord. 
  • On NBC Nightly News they'll bring in Al Roker to talk about the hurricane. Does anyone truly believe Roker knows the first thing about the weather? He's a cartoon character. 
  • There's a crazy story of a Dallas criminal defense lawyer awaiting trial for a sex crime and soliciting clients. The story says he has 650 "active clients" (insane) and that he was witnessed soliciting a new client in the courthouse hallway for $800. 
  • I've never seen so many lawyers about to go bankrupt.  And I've never seen so much incompetence and client indifference in the profession in my life. There is a correlation. 
  • The tweet below is from the wife of the Aggies' head coach. Who would believe there would by anonymous racist cowards in Texas? Oh, wait. Let me check the comments. 
  • Did you know in Texas you have the right to recuse a visiting judge if you are a party in a civil case (about money) but don't have that right in a criminal case (about freedom)? Equal Protection Clause, anyone?
  • Ever since Fox 4's Dan Godwin has changed his hair style, all I see is Michael McKean once he comes on the screen. 
    Dan or Michael?
  • There was an 8.1 earthquake in Mexico last night. Sheesh. Hurricanes, wild fires, earthquakes. And "wars and rumors of war."
  • All I see is a guy who couldn't figure out how to put flip flops in a backpack.
  • See that headline below of "Made in Russia"? That is what is meant by "hacking" which is not the appropriate term for what happened. I followed some "lady" on Twitter for months coming up to the election because "she" would post nothing but fake stories about Clinton. (i.e. "Former Clinton Computer Tech Found Murdered!"). It finally dawned on me that she wasn't real. She was a bot.
