Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

  • Stephen Hawking has died. A Texas legislature member sent his thoughts and prayers in Christian love:
  • Man, that was a close race for Congress in Pennsylvania last night but, barring a recount, a Democrat has won. And that's in a district where Trump won by 20 points and where he traveled to campaign for him. The Day of Reckoning is coming. Fast. 
  • Chico now has a curfew for those under 16 years old from 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.  For the life of me, I've never understood the constitutionality of government imposed curfews. It is the ultimate Nanny State.
  • Well done, New York Post. Well done.  I love call back jokes.

  • The family of one of the guys killed in the helicopter crash in the East River has filed a lawsuit. Uh, you want to mourn and bury the guy first? 
  • The Bradford Pear has two weeks of glory.
  • Trump deleted this yesterday after someone pointed out the typo. (By the way, Mueller was a marine.)
  • Random book-in photo:
  • The Dallas Morning News picks up on a topic I've been preaching for years. The guy is an embarrassment.
  • An Alabama Sheriff thinks it's OK to pocket $750,000 in grants for inmate food in a personal account and go off and buy a second house for $740,000. 
    "Give me a Diablo sandwich, a Dr. Pepper, and make it quick."
  • Trump wants a "Space Force . . . ’cause we’re doing a tremendous amount of work in space." Who is advising him? Trey Parker?
  • I mocked the Redskins for taking Kirk Cousins in the same draft has RG3.  Cousins is expected to sign a three year fully guaranteed  contract with the Vikings for $84 million.  The last two years he has earned $20 million and $24 million from the Redskins when they put the franchise tag on him. And he is an average quarterback.
  • Funny moment a couple of days ago when Mrs. LL and I were driving through Decatur and see a guy on a bicycle on the shoulder. of the road. I say to her, "You. On the bicycle. Tonight only. The Blues Brothers." She laughed out loud and said, "I cannot believe I understood that and laughed at it."
  • Yesterday we learned our governor opposed the "bathroom bill" but was too much of a coward to say it publicly.
  • Time is running out for the Liberally Lean Pick 'Em Tourney. (Mrs. LL yelled at me about the $20,000 prize, but I explained it was impossible for anyone to correctly guess every single game. She looked at me with a "It'll probably happen to you" face.)
