Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • The Fifth Circuit heard oral arguments on the Zeke Elliott suspension yesterday, which, in itself, is bizarre once you think about it. But the press thinking they would rule from the bench like Judge Judy made me laugh.
  • The BagOfNothing guy made a donation to SPCA in honor of our recently deceased dog.  I've never met the guy. 
  • Any chance the Cowboys would be much better over the last few years if they had a coach who wasn't a robot? 
  • Speaking of dogs, the Yorkie in the House and I have a bit. When I need her to move off my chair I don't say, "Move", I say "Oh, Skeet! Skeet!" She moves every time. ("From the window -- to the wall!")
  • It's weird how seeing the news of any tragedy is more real if you've been there. I've never stayed in Mandalay Bay but Mrs. LL and I have been in the Luxor right by it. 
  • That guy owned over 40 guns? Why? Was the war on country music coming?
  • Japan had 11 gun deaths in 2008. 11.
  • And there is no obvious motive. And he had no online presence. None. That's weird.
  • I'll find it later, but the largest mass shootings in U.S. history have all occurred in the last 15 to 20 years.
  • I had an honest trooper at a hearing yesterday, and it didn't do anything to jeopardize the State's case. Nevertheless, people like that will always have my respect. A few years back one got in trouble for being honest in court with me and got chewed out by his supervisor. He quit. 
  • Tom Petty's death still seems unreal. 
  • Does Dez paint his head? 
  • Twitter will slow my Chrome browser down to a snail's pace sometimes. Anyone have any suggestions? 
  • Serious question: I see a lot of people using ATMs. If you have a debit card, why do you need paper money? 
  • I actually started crying last night when I saw the photo below. I told Mrs. LL, "She looks like you."
