Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

The family was that of Robert and Lisa Parr who would go on to win a $2.9 million judgment against Aruba.  The case came to an end in 2017 when the Dallas Court of Appeals overturned the verdict. They chose not to seek out a review by the Texas Supreme Court. “'I’m done. I don’t want to go through it again, which is sad,' said Parr, whose family appeared in the anti-fracking documentary Gasland Part II."

  • Job opening in Bridgeport:

  • Rightly or wrongly, businesses and events will start opening without COVID restrictions in a hurry over the next month. And I wonder if some events, especially those held outdoors, are rethinking their already announced cancellations -- Mayfest and the Main Street Arts Festival come to mind. 
  • I'm trying to get a handle on what Wise County schools are doing about masks. I've heard Paradise ISD is lifting the mask mandate effective tomorrow.  Bridgeport is keeping them. 
  • There's a lot of these videos, but this one made me want to punch the guy. He brought his kids along to educate them. 

  • Well, we got our Dak Prescott news as he signed a 4 year deal worth $160.  A ton of money? You bet, but that's just the going rate for a slightly above average NFL quarterback. But the expectations for him just skyrocketed.  People will now want to see more Pat Mahomes instead of  a fourth round pick. 
  •  "President Biden’s two German shepherds have been moved to the family home in Delaware after one of the animals showed ongoing aggressive behavior to White House staff." No indictment. No trial. No due process. That's no way to treat a good boy. (Then again, it's always a good idea to keep an eye on the Germans.) 

  • Grifters gonna grift.

  • Few things are as screwed up as the American health care system. 

  • Kansas's football programs just took another step back after going 16-90 over the last 10 seasons.  Coach Les Miles has been fired. While at LSU, he "attempted to sexualize the staff of student workers in the football program by, for instance, allegedly demanding that he wanted 'blondes with the big boobs' and 'pretty girls.'"  

  • Criminal justice news of Wichita County. "Jeffrey Tyler Sweatt, 41, is suspected of . . . soliciting sex and money from an assistant prosecutor in return for her dropping charges against him, according to allegations in court documents." Doesn't sound like a very good deal for the prosecutor. 

  • Funny.

  • I'm convinced at least one-quarter of the population is nuts. Example: Dr. Fauci was on the Meet the Press last month. Take a look at all the comments on Youtube about the interview. They believe it is an actor in a mask or is some type of deep fake. I mean they are convinced of it. 
  • Legal nerd stuff for Personal Injury lawyers:  State Rep. Jeff Leach, who I think is a con man, is supporting House Bill 19.  It's tort reform but only for cases involving commercial vehicles. Here's the text. There's a lot going on there, but I don't understand all of it since I don't practice that kind of law. Some of you guys email and tell me what he is up to. He's already being scorched in the tweet's comments

  • I still haven't got my Bill Gates Computer Chip Vaccine, but I'm on the list.
