Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

  • Wise County active cases: 24 (+7. Wacky.)
  • Texas hospitalizations: -59.

  • Apparently, some students really do need to get back in school. (It's like Hoover visiting a  Hooverville and blaming Roosevelt.)

  • The Don't-Mix-Sports-And-Politics crowd had a really tough day yesterday.

  • America 2020: She'll be on Dancing With The Stars.

  • I did not know this. Side note: I've never seen Citizen Kane.

  • At some point, instead of Zoom conferences, we'll use virtual reality headsets where we are all represented in 3D images in the same fake room, right? And that can't be that far away.  Heck, we could easily do what was in the old movie Disclosure right now.  But I'm talking about something which would feel mind-bendingly real. 

  • Wasn't it just a couple of weeks ago we had back-to-back stories of cars driving into back yard swimming pools in Arlington? 

  • Conservative Drudge remains ruthless. 

  • If you've regurgitated a particular "6%" figure in the last week, you probably struggled in Health class in high school. 
  • Fun little high school football fact:

  • I  couldn't help but look up Cotton Center High School which turned out to be a six-man football school in West Texas. The most amazing thing about it is the satellite view around it.  Here (that's just the Google map view which lets you zoom in and out, but it's even wilder than the screenshot.)

  • Shout out to the Wise County Auditor. I made an Open Records request, something I never do,  and she responded to me within hours upon receiving it with the requested records. 
  • Messenger: Above the Fold
