Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

Weiner-gate was 10 years ago. He would resign from Congress in less than 30 days.  I had forgotten that the incriminating photos were sent through his public Twitter account -- it wasn't even a DM -- to some 21 year old who just happened to be following that account.    Weiner stayed in the public view afterwards even running for the Mayor of New York a couple of times. The best I can tell, he's been out of the news since 2016. 

  •  Overnight: We have another situation identical to the Arlington triple death case from last week (that everyone has already forgotten about.) It sounds like a murder-suicide at an apartment complex on the west side for Fort Worth around loop 820 and I-30.

  • A lot of Republicans in Texas are blaming House Speaker Dade Phelan for conspiring with Democrats to allow them to run out the clock on the legislative session on Sunday.

  • I'll be honest, when I see headlines like this I feel completely like an old man.

  • This was a weird headline from the Morning News. That was a QAnon themed convention which had already been kicked out of one venue, and where Michael Flynn (pictured) called for an armed insurrection against the U.S. 

  • Any chance that's a Dunkin' Donuts ad disguised as a segment this morning? I'd put the odds at 100%

  • Here's a video of a guy running onto the court at an NBA game last night. Nice tackle by the guy who is circled.

  • I missed the mugshot of the lady-who-got-in-the-monkey-exhibit-to-feed-them-hot-Cheetos.

  • Rep. Matt Gaetz and others got duped into retweeting a picture of Lee Harvey Oswald yesterday. He deleted it. 

  • Kept seeing this headline everywhere this morning. I'm not sure what the big deal is. Every night his show was a Trump commercial.

  • I installed a Wi-Fi thermostat and (1) I amazingly didn't screw it up, and (2) it may be the greatest invention ever. To control your a/c remotely is hard for me to get my head around.  Honeywell for $69.00.

  • I'm reading this book on the history of the Texas Rangers. Big two thumbs up. 

  • I'm now 200 pages into Lonesome Dove as well. Let me tell you one thing: Larry McMurtry writes at a pace where he presumes you've got nothing else to do for the rest of your life. It's not bad book and I enjoy it, but, for the sake of all things holy, just get on with it! 
  • Around midnight, Lake Bridgeport became officially full
