Random Friday Morning Thoughts

  • Yep, I'm here. I'm busting into 2021 prepared to defend my crown as as The Hardest Working Man in Show Business™.
  • Texas hospitalizations: The year ended with the same nasty attitude.  We blew past 12,000. 

  • The local hospital has informed me they have indeed received 1,200 doses of the Moderna vaccine. Below is the procedure to get in line.  While the shipment was "unexpected" they "were thankful" and noted that at the current time "we are not receiving advanced notifications for future shipments." 

  • Once the vaccine is issued, can we at least have people wait indoors and avoid this situation in Tarrant County yesterday?

  • Let's talk about my no snow forecast.  For those of you who went to bed early and woke up late, I'd like for you to take a look out the window and be amazed at my accuracy. You may now go on to the next bullet point. As to those who stayed up late and just happened to look out the window around 11:00 p.m., I'd like to say that I was wrong.
  • Gov. Abbott wasn't exactly "law and order" last night as he directly told Austin restaurants to defy a closing order by the Austin Mayor and Austin County Judge. This occurred despite a state district judge earlier in the evening upholding the closing order. (It was also later upheld by the Austin Court of Appeals.)  Never before in my entire legal career can I remember a year of federal and local officials just telling people to ignore court orders.

  • I'm no master politician or mathematician, but that 2,240 number below isn't anything to brag about as a year long accomplishment. 

  • The Times Square "ball drop" was turned basically into a Kia commercial. 
  • There was a brawl at the the end or the Armed Forces Bowl in Fort Worth yesterday. If you want to see a quick loading video of the entire incident along with the fantastic and funny commentary by Jomboy, here you go
  • This made me laugh. 

  • Yesterday, 10 speeding cases in a row were filed in JP1 all alleging the different drivers were going 80 in a 70. As a guy which monitors everything filed in Wise County, I can say that's weird. 

  • Based upon Wise County Jail records, there were two arrests last night for DWI and one for Minor in Consumption.
  • Random Iowa Park news.

  • You know, I've never met famed DWI Tarrant County lawyer Mimi Coffey out of Fort Worth, but yesterday she posted this which made me at least believe we are kindred spirits. We both don't drive expensive cars and both will drive them into the ground.

  • Time which has passed since the Wise County Sheriff's Office has failed to solve the murder of Lauren Whitener in her home at Lake Bridgeport: 546 days

  • Messenger: Above the Fold
  • On of the guys convicted in the Blackwater Massacre and pardoned by Trump is from Olney . . .
