Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • The Decatur Eagles will play Abilene Wylie in the playoffs. It is bizarre how many times they have faced them. And Abilene Wylie seems to have their number every time. 
  • Ladies and Gentleman, I present to you the President of the United States. I seriously thought this was a parody account at first. He's a Junior High girl:
  • Funny: 
  • Wise County voted down two proposed Texas constitutional amendments which would allow limited raffles as sporting events. That seems odd. Both passed statewide.
  • This will interest very few of you, but check out this affidavit from a former (and very respected) assistant DA in Waco crucifying his former boss on ethics allegations.
  • This unqualified new judge, appointed by Trump, is 36 years old.

  • Sean Hannity had Roy Moore on for a soft-ball interview and it blew up. Moore said he never dated any girl without their mom's permission. He was a 30-something assistant D.A. Good lord. 
  • Below is Billy Graham's son. I remember when Christians used to pray for the victims. 
  • An Uber driver alleges that while he was giving a Dallas County assistant district attorney a ride late Friday night, she hit him, insulted him and accused him of kidnapping her.  Uh, he recorded it. (It is shocking, and if she isn't fired this morning for embarrassing the office, something is very wrong.)
  • The new UNT Law School in Dallas just had a dismal bar passing rate but the Dallas Morning News thinks it is great. This is the silliest paragraph ever:"UNT's passage rate — 59 percent — is far from the over-90 percent rates at law schools at Baylor University and the University of Texas at Austin. But it's only a few points below some older Texas schools and, as the ABA Journal noted, among law schools nationwide, UNT Dallas did better than even some who have already been fully accredited." So it's not far behind the second worst Texas law school, and there actually exists other law schools somewhere in the country that scored worse that 59%. Talk about a low bar. 
  • That party was lit!
  • There are 352 Texas high school football playoff games. After a quick look, this appears to be the best game: Shallowater (9-1) vs. San Angelo Grape Creek (1-9), 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Snyder. Someone explain to me how a one win team gets qualifies for the playoffs. 
  • College football: (1) Thrashings that I did not expect to be thrashings: OU over TCU. Miami over Notre Dame. Auburn over Georgia. Ohio State over Michigan State. (2) I'm highly entertained by Baker Mayfield. (3) Baylor lost to Tech by 14 points despite leading in total yardage 523 to 347. Moral: You cannot turn the ball over. (4) Auburn's fantastic quarterback was a Baylor commit who left once the scandal broke. I was mad at him initially, but I've softened. It was in his best interest, and I'm not going to dog a college kid for doing what is in his best interest. (5) Auburn vs. Alabama will be interesting. And it is in Auburn. (6) The normally empty stadium at UNT had a really good crowd on Saturday.
  • Good, lord: 
  • Good, lord 2.0:
  • “Every time (Putin) sees me, he says, 'I didn't do that' . . . and I believe, I really believe, that when he tells me that, he means it." Incredible. Just ignore what every single U.S. Intelligence agency has said.  And Trump made that statement on Veteran's Day. 
  • Oh, Alabama: 

  • Mrs. LL and the Freshman in The House had an incident in a Fort Worth Chili's.The waitress dropped a tray at the end of the meal and salsa flew all over the Freshman. No biggee. Accidents happen. But some of the salsa flew into her eye and immediately started burning. The goofy waitress just laughed and walked away. When she came back to clean up the mess, Mrs. LL said she needed eye wash and needed it now. The waitress said she didn't think they had any. A frustrated Mrs. LL, who has expert waitress experience, said, "In the kitchen there is a safety kit. In that kit there is eye wash. And if it is not in there. I'm calling OSHA." Yep, Mrs. LL threatened someone with OSHA. (There was eye wash in there. And the manager came out and said, "I'm so sorry" about a million times.) It hurt the next day and went to the eye doctor. He actually diagnosed it as a "chemical burn."
