Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • Wise County active cases: 32 (-12)
  • Texas hospitalizations: (-616)
  • I still don't know how this Fall is going to pan out. The University of Alabama yesterday reported 500 cases once students got back on campus. 
  • From the Wall Street Journal.  (Ticket fans would refer to Cuban as a "Chris Chris.")
  • As I smoothly segue away from "shirtless, dripping with sweat": The Jerry Falwell Jr. pool boy scandal is a lot to wrap your head around. But Falwell has a lot going on than just liking to watch.  I had already forgotten that lawyer Michael Cohen, Trump's "fixer", helped Falwell suppress racy photos of his wife in a possible exchange for Falwell's endorsement of Trump. And someone might want to look into this story from last year about Falwell's wife's 23 year old personal trainer (not the pool boy) ending up with Liberty University real estate worth over a $1 million.

  • Good lord.

  • Speaking of smooth segue: I don't know why she was yelling. Watch
  • How the roll call to officially nominate their party's candidate was handled by Democrats and Republicans:
  • The Arkansas "farmer", who I hope didn't get Chinese tariff welfare, was 28 years old and went by the name Quake Lewellyn which doesn't exactly match the stereotype.
  • She spent some of the rest of the day defending her post, writing "I want to clear the air by saying NONE of the blame should be placed on the TXST School of Music."
  • I saw the trailer for Jojo Rabbit in a theater and thought it was the dumbest thing I'd ever seen. I finally watched the film this weekend. Verdict: A shocking two thumbs up.  It was really, really good. 
  • Holy cow. Compare the view of the north side of the White House with a photo I took in December (at 10:21 a.m. on 12/27/19 to be exact) to one that was taken yesterday.

  • If my tracking of numbers is correct, 1 out of every 5 felony cases filed in Wise County is now based upon marijuana/THC products bought legally out of state. Most defendants are just passing through on Highway 287.
