The Campaign For DA

10.20.2017

Random Friday Morning Thoughts




  • The future of the Colonial Golf Tournament may be in doubt.
  • George W. went after Trump yesterday: "We’ve seen our discourse degraded by casual cruelty . . . . Bullying and prejudice in our public life sets a national tone and provides permission for cruelty and bigotry. The only way to pass along civic values is to first live up to them. . . . Bigotry or white supremacy in any form is blasphemy against the American creed.” 
  • Did Love Field have a movie theater back in the day? I know my church took us to see Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid once and we all took a bus, and I could swear it was at Love Field. Did it have a roller rink? An ice rink? 
  • I think I've mentioned this before, but there used to be a light rail that went from a parking lot into the Tandy Center in downtown Fort Worth. I was on a double date in high school and as we were leaving the guy conducting one of the trains (which was empty) yelled at us as we were getting into our car, "Can you tell me my speed?" He wanted us to drive along side him in the empty parking lot because he wanted to see how fast he could get the train to go. I did it. He got it up to somewhere in the 30s. He was an idiot. I was an idiot. But it was fun. 
  • There was a comment yesterday that said Tarrant County DA Sharen Wilson is letting associates in a big law firm (Kelly, Hart) come in and try DWI cases (for experience I suppose.) Is that true? That cannot possibly be true. 
  • White Supremacist Richard Spencer spoke at the University of Florida and it wasn't pretty.  A handful of people showed up to support him wearing white shirts. Even if you support him, which is their right, why show up at public event to be photographed? It will have life long consequences. They actually raised their hands when Spencer asked, "Raise your hand if you identify with the alt-right." 
  • I'd pay big money to have him speak at the Decatur Convention Center just so Joe Duty could take photographs of who shows up.
  • Let me rethink that.  I'd love to be on stage with him for a debate.  I bet it would be a packed house, and I would pay Spencer to show up. I would do it for free. The Messenger could promote it: Alt-Right vs. Liberally Lean: The Thrilla on 380. How fun would that be? Edit: Thanks to a commentor for the suggestion: We would make it The Thrilla In Dacat-Ah.
  • Crazy Conspiracy theory: Any chance Big Tex burned because Dickies gets free promotion every year? He had the logo on his shirt which is shown time and time again. (Dickies was sold recently.) 
  • Nooooo! Not the goofy Texas Supreme Court justice! (This is from a reporter of the great Texas Tribune.)
  • What a weird case: A law firm files a lawsuit against the State Fair of Texas for violating the Open Records Act, the judge rules they aren't subject to the law, and now the law firm has to pay $178,000 the State Fair's legal fees. (And for the life of me, how the fees can be that high on an Open Records fight is beyond comprehension.)

Love Field used to have an ice and roller rink. You could go from one to the other. Not sure about theater. Seems it was all named "LLOVE" or something like that.

No, it's not true. Kelly Hart isn't a big law firm.

I think Big Texas was burned so they could change him from a white cowboy to a Mexican cowboy...and Dickie's got the prize.

I don't know much, but I know the Colonial does not "bring in" $122 million to the local economy. The VAST majority of people attending are already living in the local economy. The dollars spent are already here. Economic impact studies are usually goofy.

I question the wisdom of you questioning the legal fees of another law firm. As a fellow attorney, wouldn't that be grounds for disbarment, or a fine, or maybe a nasty sideways glance from the state bar?

There's no crazy conspiracy about Big Tex going up in flames. Here's the scoop: Sam Houston's statue came up to visit and played the ol' hot foot prank and it got out of hand. Big Tex is...soo...slow...that before he realized what was happening, his Fletcher's corn dog was burnt to a crisp, if you know what I mean.
But that was payback for when Big Tex went down to Huntsville one weekend and spray painted "Yosemite" in front of Sam's name on the base.

The Colonial Tourney folks made a risky move when they hooked up with an up-scale grocery store as sponsor. Dog eat dog in the grocery business. They should have partnered with a business with a more solid financial base, such as a used car lot.

Anybody else think that George W is making a better ex-President than President? Seems that several light bulbs have lit up for him since he left office. More power to him. He could have just sat on his back porch in North Dallas and clipped coupons. Good on him for speaking up.

Loved the old Tandy Subway. Originally named the M&O Subway for Marvin and O. P. Leonard of Leonard Brothers Department Store. They were the folks who had it built. At the time it was the only privately owned subway in America. Good times.

In the 1940s and early 50s there was a roller rink on Industrial blvd called DalCliff and an ice rink in state fair grounds. These are the only ones I remember.
The only reason we went to Love Field was to watch the planes take off and land. We were real sophisticates !

I can't believe anyone that ever rode the Tandy Subway would refer to it as "light rail."

Dallas DA has/had a program where biglaw firms loaned associates to them to get trial experience. Wouldn't be surprised if FWDA had the same.

Yes, but we're Democrats. You can tell, because we have all our teeth.

Ummm, y'all realize there is more than one Gold Star Widow, right? I'm sure Kelly is going to be equally upset that this phone call Trump made wasn't kept private too. Here is what adults do, if they insult someone, they apologize about it and don't make it worse by calling people liars.

I would go to the debate with Spencer and Skippy but I don't want to get piss bombed or blown up by Antifa. Them boys are serious about shutting down free speech. Everyone is on the bandwagon about the KKK or white supremicism but they are a bunch of lightweights when it comes the George Soros sponsored Antifa.

Skippy, now you know why the terrorist wing of the democratic party has two groups that cover their faces. The KKK and Antifa. I'll give you credit for being smart enough to hide your face in public.

11:42, That's the drumbeat of the Trump hating democratic press. The real news is there is an undercover whistle blower that has all the dirt on Clinton, Obammy, Holder and Mueller colluding with the Russians for tens of millions of dollars. But you'll never be told about it. Keep your eyes on the shiny objects.

The Thrilla in Decat-uh could be followed by your Antifa buddies rioting in downtown Decatur. Can you imagine the cars turned over and set on fire, the store windows broken and then the businesses looted. You know the Liberal Democratic way. I had a teacher one time tell me to read all I could about communism, religion, and politics so you could make intelligent informed statements. Not just go with the flow of the crowd, even if you stand alone.

It's true. Look at one of the two NGs for CCC #5. A prosecutor named Anneke Cronje listed. Now go look at the Kelly, Hallman site and look at their lawyers. She works for them.

You obviously haven't hired a high profile law firm lately. It costs $1,000 just to get a non-disclosure, non-complete agreement drafted...

Never have heard Spencer speak, so no idea if he is an idiot alt-right, or just an idiot. Probably no difference-aver mind. Anyhow, if you were going to debate someone from the "other side", I would like to see you take on Ben Shapiro. Don't know how good you are at making your point(s), but he is pretty good!!

You’re thinking of LLOVE. Was open during a rebuilding/slower time at Love Field. Had a roller rink, ice rink, arcade and a movie theatre. In the late-70,s it was a great place for this early teen to run around and meet girls.
