Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • With the upcoming high school football on the horizon, nearby Diamond Hill has a chance to set a state record. They currently have 72 consecutive losses! The record is 80 held by Houston Jefferson Davis (now renamed to "Northside") set from 1985 to 1993.
  • Hot news question: We haven't received the best information on the Thai Cave Boys over the last couple of weeks. Any possibility they truly didn't get over two miles into that cave? I would be real interested in an American news team exploring that cave once everyone is gone. 
  • Burying the lede: As of this morning, everyone has been rescued.
  • There is no more of a lie than every Supreme Court nominee saying, "My job it to interpret the law and not make law."
  • Nominee Brett Kavanaugh's wife graduated from Abilene Cooper in 1993.
  • If confirmed,  Kavanaugh would make history by becoming only the 107th white man to serve on the United States Supreme Court out of 113 previous justices.
  • I would hope so
  • On more than one occasion I proclaimed Baltimore Oriole (and former Texas Ranger) Chris Davis as the Official Liberally Lean MLB Player for his huge turnaround. Baltimore felt the same way and gave him a 7-year, $161 million contract in 2016. Things have taken a turn: 
  • College Football Guru Phil Steele has released his Top 25 and Texas is at #10. The pressure begins. 
  • I didn't know Trump Jr. is dating a Fox News anchor. (His wife has filed for divorce but it is not finalized. They have five kids.)
  • And I completely missed that Fox News' Jesse Watters' wife is divorcing him after he had an affair with a 25 years old Fox employee. (He became a "rising star" after working for Bill O'Reilly who got fired for sexual misconduct.)
  • But, in Watters defense, he is a valuable Fox employee since he routinely interviews "Diamond and Silk" and the "Party Bros".
  • Everyone is bent out of shape about a guy who died in New Orleans and, before being buried, has been embalmed and on display propped up in a chair wearing a basketball jersey and sunglasses with a video game controller in his hands. (I know that I posted a photo of guy a few years back who was on display on a motorcycle.)
  • Trump, on the White House lawn, before leaving for a NATO meeting this morning: “I have NATO, I have the UK, which is in somewhat turmoil and I have Putin. Frankly, Putin may be the easiest of them all.” Huh?
