Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • Mrs. LL and I watched Gentleman Prefer Blondes last night. Neither of us had ever seen it before. Not bad. Not bad at all. (And the innuendos are insane.)
  • In case you missed it (and I don't know how you could), Trump said before a crowd in Alabama on Friday as to any player who kneels during the national anthem that the NFL should "fire" "that son of a b****." He then screamed, for emphasis, "Fire!" He's insane. 
  • Then he followed it up with uninviting Steph Curry to the White House and threatening to wipe North Korea off the face of the earth. It was a stellar weekend for him. Truly, I'm not sure who is less crazy: Rocket Man or Trump.
  • I finally got around to watching the Reagan documentary on CNN. It's really good. His background as an actor helped him a great deal. 
  • College football: (1) Baylor actually hung around with OU, (2) TCU is really good, (3) if the Aggies had lost, that blown call that cost them four points would be the talk of Aggieland. 
  • Puerto Rico is in a state of disaster but no one seems to care. 
  •  State Rep. Phil King, who represents Wise and Parker counties in House District 61, has announced his candidacy to run for speaker of the Texas House. I'm more confused by his photo associated with the story because I don't remember him looking like that. 
  • One thing I found odd on my North Carolina football trip is that they still have Food Lion stores.
