Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

  • The Southwest Airline engine explosion and related death is simply horrifying. I cannot imagine what it would be like to be on that plane. I can't imagine what it is like to be the husband of the woman who died after almost be sucked out of the plane. 
  • The pilot, who just happens to be a female, can truly be classified as a hero to get that thing safely on the ground. (And I say that with the firm belief that the term "hero" is thrown around way too loosely these days.)
  • For those of you who fly every now and then, look at this: 
  • Side note: If I think I'm going to die, I'm not taking photos.
  • A new trend I've noticed from watching too many Wise County DWI videos: Law enforcement has gone to using cell phones to communicate to each other instead of the traditional way over the radio where the public, if they have a scanner, can hear. I wonder why? (That's rhetorical.)
  • This is what is called "jumping ship." He is the worst DA in Texas and perhaps the worst in the history of Texas. 
  • I meant this to make this a bullet point yesterday. Putin owns Trump.
  • Trump's a "Spy"? And "more a Spy than he is"? He's losing it.
  • How's that Trump appointed Supreme Court judge working out for ya? 
  • Trump immediately got mad about it:
  • Barbara Bush was a national treasure. As is her husband. As is her son. I think I finally understand the Simon and Garfunkle song Mrs. Robinson which had the line of, "Where have you gone Joe Dimaggio? A nation turns our lonely eyes to you." 
  • Nice job from the White House for botching their acknowledgement of the death of Mrs. Bush.
  • "At the end of your life you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict, or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child or a parent.” - Barbara Bush (1990).
