Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • Roy Moore's lawyer, who appears to be as dumb as Roy Moore, says that the signing of the year book of the 14 year old (who certainly appears to be a victim) is: "A forgery!" Worst. Lawyer. Ever. The signature is dead on. 
  • Roy Moore is threatening to sue the New York Post. I pray that he does that. It would be like putting Trump under oath: A disaster.
  • He references a teenage cheerleader movie? (Uh, "It's already been broughten!")
  • Mrs. LL taught me a self defense technique the other night. I don't even know her anymore.
  • I've started watching Ken Burn's Vietnam. I'm hooked.
  • "Nope!":
  • I had guy who was behind me in a check out line, with a heavy Australian accent, ask me, "Are you in line, mate?" I wanted to strike up a conversation but I didn't. I regret it.
  • A guy in Flower Mound  thought about going after his wife's paramour.:
  • Full disclosure: When I was DA, Mark Peterson was my investigator for sex crimes. One of our policies is that if he wanted to make an arrest, he would type up a Probable Cause affidavit  and bring it to me for review and we would talk about it before I approved, modified,  or rejected it. In one of them, he used the term "paramour." As a thirty-something year old, I looked at him and said, "What the hell is a 'paramour'?" I still remember him laughing.
  • Helter Skelter, (electric guitar), Helter Skelter: 
  • Sheriff, you might find it just as offensive as I do, but you are going to be sued. It's called Freedom of Speech.  Let me direct you to Cohen vs. California which was handed down by the Supreme Court in 1971.
  • The goofy tweeting Texas Supreme Court judge quietly had his Senate hearing yesterday before he gets confirmed to the Fifth Circuit. He caught a little bit of heat, but there is nothing that can be done to stop his confirmation.
  • What?
  • He will probably get fired, but Fox New's Shepard Smith has debunked the Hillary "Uranium One" story.
  • Oh, Sean. This is WhatAboutism at its finest. 
  • I don't know what to think about Trump's crazy search for water during his rambling speech yesterday. 
  • I wrote this a couple of months ago. I was told, "Pets are great, but the downside is that they die before you do." There are few moments worse in your life than sitting on the ground after burying a pet, dirt on your jeans, dirt on your shirt, dirt on your face, sweat dripping off you, and crying. Godspeed, my friend.
