The Campaign For DA

6.27.2018

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts


  • A 28 year old socialist female Latino beat a 10 term Democratic incumbent, Joe Crowley, in the primary in New York last night. These times, they are a changin'. 
  • And she was at the border last weekend instead of campaigning in New York (although I guess that is a form of campaigning.)
  • Proof that Trump is a narcissist.  Bow to the king! Uh, "his"?
  • A Colleyville Heritage QB who is so good that he has an offer from Oklahoma just happened to have his dad take a job as assistant coach at Denton Ryan. He'll move with dad and enroll at Denton Ryan.
  • Fox 4, which seems to be having lots of turnover, has hired a new reporter who is already doing fill-in weekday anchor duties. 
  • Based upon the article, he'll never be convicted, and I'm not sure charges will even be filed. Crazy story, though. 
  • Trump's Muslim Ban was upheld by the Supreme Court yesterday, 5-4. The theft of Merrick Garland’s Supreme Court seat is legitimately the greatest heist in world history.
  • Here's the 1980 ABC opening of the Texas/OU game with some great footage of what Commerce Street used to look like on the night before the game. (Thanks, J.)
  • Oklahoma voters approved medical marijuana last night. It's only a matter of time. 
  • The home pages of local newspapers are getting worse. Look at the Dallas Morning News this morning. That paid ad referencing Tony Robins death (he is very much alive) is an ED ad.
  • We've got a trifecta brewing: A drought, high winds, and 4th of July fireworks. 
  • I miss "The Mooch."
  • Wise County MessengerAbove the fold.
