Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • Yesterday a Wise County jury found a guy not guilty after an assault trial. You could see that verdict coming from a mile away. 
  • There was a crash in Dallas last night. This Ferrari was driven by boxer Errol Spence Jr. who was not wearing a seatbelt. He's in ICU.

  • Trump, you've got a problem. A new Fox News poll shows that the majority of Americans want you impeached and removed. And the rapid increase in those numbers is stunning. This is a big deal. 
  • He just saw the poll! And he responds like a petulant child who is mad at his daddy. 
  • These are predicted lows for Saturday. Caveat: These are Delkus predictions so they are likely wrong by a few degrees or more. 
  • Liberally Lean Super Team Weather Center Guaranteed Forecast -- I've been studying the maps for a couple of hours:  The wind will turn and come out of the north at 8:00 p.m. tonight and wind speeds will peak at 1:30 a.m. Friday morning. But before the wind turns, we'll see storms. They'll move in around 4:30 p.m. this afternoon and taper off after midnight. We might hit 60 degrees on Friday. Plan accordingly. Set your clocks. 
  • If you like politics, you've got to see this ad of a candidate for sheriff in South Carolina. He wants to confess some mistakes to get out in front of a story. Some of those things aren't like the others. 
  • If you want, you can vote on a constitutional amendment in Texas preventing a personal income tax. But it's all for show. The Texas constitution already has a provision that prevents the legislature from imposing the tax without voter approval. Yet the true Texas Swamp takes offense when you point that out.
  • Other Texas politics news: The morally challenged Michael Quinn Sullivan of PAC Empower Texans says he will release his secretly recorded conversation with house speaker Dennis Bonnen next week since he's received the "green light from [his] legal team." 
  • I'm issuing a permanent traffic alert for Tin Top Highway and its cousin Lipan Drive in Granbury. I saw the blurb below on Sunday evening and thought it was weird. One of those crashes involved a fatality. Then I learned there was another head-on crash on Tin Top on Monday which also involved a fatality. 
  • While Trump was doing his normal tweet storm yesterday morning, his Fox News buddies and even lapdog politicians were crucifying him about the Turks moving in to slaughter the Kurds:

  • Let's check in on what great humanitarian project the First Lady is working on.

  • Wise County Jail population this morning: 170.
