Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • J. E. Carson, the namesake of one of Decatur's elementary schools, passed away early this morning. 
  • Los Angeles airport announces it won't bust people for weed. (Here's a dirty little not-so-secret: Any airport in a state that legally sells weed isn't going to mess with you either. They just won't say it on the record like LAX.)
  • Speaking of, Gov. Abbott over the weekend announced he would push for reducing the punishment for possession of personal amounts of marijuana to a Class C misdemeanor -- the equivalent of a traffic ticket. 
  • I didn't even know there was one. (From the official Texas prosecutors site):

  • This writer from Dave Campbell's Texas Football noted something bizarre on Friday night. How it occurred is here in the comments
  • The State doesn't have to prove a motive but I'm certainly curious if there was one. 
  • "I was really being tough and so was he. And we would go back and forth. And then we fell in love. No really. He wrote me beautiful letters. They were great letters. And then we fell in love." - President Trump at one his "rallies" on Saturday night. (That would make the front page of every paper if the U.S. was in a constant state of chaos.)
  • The doctor who looked at Tavon Austin was either the ghost of LBJ or Jim Leavelle.
  • It's the first week of October with the temperatures in the 80s and high humidity. Why do we live her again? 
  • I think this guy, who was labeled "creepy old man", at the Florida game got a bad rap. It looks like he is in the row behind her and not speaking to her at all. 
  • A Georgia high school football player died yesterday from a head injury he received in a game on Friday. A Tennessee State player underwent emergency surgery on Saturday after a head injury. He is still in critical condition.
  • Good and Evil? Really? Can we please pull the FBC of Dallas' tax exempt status. 
  • Messenger: Above The Fold.
