Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • "It is 'highly inappropriate'" to get into a debate with a four star General." - Press Secretary Huckabee-Sanders after the press questioned his defense of Trump. You kidding me? Does anyone in the Administration have any idea the important roll of the press in this country? 
  • This will only appeal to legal gurus: A weird Fort Worth appellate case just released on the Speedy Trial Act.
  • I think Curb Your Enthusiasm is one of the funniest shows I've ever seen. And when you can get Salman Rushdie to make an appearance (which is an old Seinfeld joke) you are on the top of your game. 
  • Sports: (1) The UT quarterback is a gamer but might not be very smart. You cannot make that throw in overtime. (2) The Indiana game had one bizarre moment: They let Michigan State score from about 10 yards out so they could get the ball back. It didn't work out, but it truly was the smart thing to do.  (3) The Cowboys having to use a defensive back as a replacement  kicker was high entertainment. 
  • For some reason I ended up at a UNT softball game on Friday night. There are more people at Decatur baseball games. But it was entertaining and I got to see the rare ball hit to the right fielder who was able to throw out the runner at first base, 
  • The Freshman In The House called me "bro" last night. I didn't get mad, but I did pause and, deadpanning, asked the question, "Did you just call me 'bro'?"
  • You kidding me? One con man promoting the book of another con man. 
  • Does he have a date and time? I'm trying to make vacation plans. (And he's trying to sell a book instead of doing his job as a pastor. Incredible.) 

  • We've got a huge tree in the front lawn which either had a premature fall of leaves or is dead. (I'll find out next Spring. )
  • Some running back from McKinney High has rushed for 592 yards. In one game
  • Only $125 to see a millenial comic open for Sheriff Joe at a Trump golf course!:
  • The front page story entitled  "Dark Days" in the Messenger is fantastic. There is so much history which has been lost and stories like this need to be told. My dad had never heard of it. 
  • There was a fire in a nice house in Bridgeport that caused a  fatality. My brother lived on that street about 30 years ago and I'm trying to figure out if it is the same house. 
  • From the Update: "SHERIFF’S OFFICE K-9 PARTNER MISSING". That must not have been a very strong "kennel."
  • The Richardson child's body has been found. Was she moved there or is daddy telling the truth that he put her out by a tree and then she wandered off? Either way, it is heartbreaking.
