Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

  • Well, yesterday we had the President of the United States called a porn star he had an affair with  "Horseface", and she responded by calling him "Tiny." It's been a good run, America. 
  • If you are going to have an affair with a porn star while your wife is pregnant you should at least spell her name correctly. (And it's funny how Trump unwittingly called himself "a total con" in the last sentence.)
  • Fun fact: On September 15, 1991 Troy Aikman had 11 completions on 25 attempts for only 121 yards. He was sacked 11 times. He is one of only seven quarterbacks to have as many sacks as completions in a single game. (Minimum of 10 attempts.)
  • Quick loading video "Raging Llano River destroys bridge in Kingsland (Llano County)". The Hill Country is an active flood zone. 
  • A faithful reader who was looking for a massage in Weatherford thinks she has found my doppelganger
  • Even Brian Kilmeade had to abruptly clarify: "Great people just but bad leaders."
  • "If you work in one of the many institutions through which addicts often pass — rehabs, hospitals, jails, courts — and treat them with the compassion and respect they deserve, thank you. If instead you see a junkie or thief or liar in front of you rather than a human being in need of help, consider a new profession." - Obituary of Madelyn Ellen Linsenmeir, 30.
  • The owner of the Bunny Ranch and HBO star Dennis Hof abruptly died yesterday. Included in the  people who were the last to see him alive (and I am not making this up): Sheriff Joe, Tucker Carlson, and porn star Ron Jeremy.
    Speaking of odd groups:
    Joey Buttafuoco , "Kato" Kaelin, A Ticket Guy, and Dennis Hof.
  • Weed becomes legal across Canada today, and yesterday it was announced that citizens with a conviction for possession of less than 30 grams (a tad over an ounce) would be pardoned. 
  • Found footage: Former Dallas DA Henry Wade discussing prosecuting adult movie theaters and book stores in 1971. He said he had no problem getting convictions but the problem was that the juries weren't giving jail time. He didn't seem to understand that the juries were sending him a message. Those prosecutions exist nowhere in Texas today.
  • Saudia Arabia is like Kavanaugh?
  • "I don’t want to talk about any of the facts and they didn’t want to either." - U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo after being asked if the Saudis said Jamal Khashoggi, a permanent U.S. resident, was alive or dead. Do we have one competent person in that Administration? He traveled 12 hours to get there and they gave him an hour of their time including this yuk-it-up photo op.
  • About three Twitter comments prompted this headline and story in the Star-Telegram:
  • Breaking: Melania's plane had to go back to Andrew Air Force just now when smoke filled the cabin. All is well.
