The Campaign For DA

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts



  • One of the Family Pups decided to eat the carpet. I feel good about myself for not committing first degree puppy homicide.
  • When I heard this guy was going to be up at the third floor of the Wise County Courthouse several months back, I remember telling the prosecutors that I thought he was one of those "Proud Boys." He might be in trouble.
  • Texas Superintendent news: The head of Irving ISD schools just up and quit yesterday, and (2) another school sup thought it would be a good idea to post on social media that "you can't count on a black quarterback."
  • Texas Prosecutor Ineptedness: Prosecutors in Austin played the wrong 911 call in a trial and didn't realize it until the frantic 911 caller finally said her name. The judge was not pleased: “How in the world could you let this go this far and not recognize the differences [between the right and the wrong tape]?” he said. “Y’all don’t know enough about your case? … This is very disturbing.”
  • It's been a while since I've listened to a Cowboys game on the radio, but I caught a bit of one on Sunday. It is pure Idiocracy. "And after Tavon Austin's first Home Depot touchdown, here comes Brett Maher on for the J.C. Penney extra point." (I've got the sponsors wrong, but otherwise that is dead on.) 
  • Oh.
  • Kavanaugh's alleged victim now wants an FBI investigation prior to her testifying before the committee on Monday. I don't know what is going to happen now, but it's only Wednesday.
  • Longtime sports radio listeners in DFW will remember barber Leon Simon who was a frequent caller who got a gig as a co-host on KLIF. He has passed away. He was famous for down home witticisms like: "Just because you put boots in an oven doesn't make them biscuits." And when Michael Irvin showed up in a fur coat for his cocaine trial back in the day, Leon said, "If you are accused of stealing chickens you don’t show up at court with feathers coming out of your pockets.” 
  • There was a Wise County deputy arrested yesterday which was briefly the worst kept secret in the county.  Everyone knew almost moments after it occurred. (I'm not sure what I think about him having his book in photo taken in his WCSO uniform.) 
  • I'm not sure what theappeal.org is, but they took a shot at Tarrant County DA Sharen Wilson:
  • “One of the wettest we’ve ever seen from the standpoint of water” - Trump yesterday on Hurricane Florence in a pre-recorded message.
  • Courage:
  • Her pig before it gets sifted at the stock show. (This will make about five of you laugh):
  • I've been in the Liberally Lean First Warn Storm Tracking Lab™, and I'm predicting major rain early Friday evening until around noon Saturday. From the standpoint of water, it will be wet.
  • Messenger: Above The Fold (when breaking deputy news breaks too late to make it.)
