Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

Despite all the coverage over the last few days of "space" travel, I'm not sure I've heard anyone mention that this is the ten year anniversary of Space Shuttle program being shut down. 

  • Let them eat cake space?

  • From the Maybe The Vaccine Isn't Such A Bad Idea Department:

  • And one right wing leader who is anti-vax may not understand HIPAA but, by not answering the question, has definitely been vaccinated. Video.

  • I forgot to mention yesterday that the Official Liberally Lean Girl shouldn't be acting like a nutcase online when everyone has been urging her to be released from her conservatorship because she's not a nutcase. She went on a rant last weekend: 

  • Let's check in on women's soccer this morning.  Oops. First loss in 44 straight matches. We are off to a bang up start. 

  • Oh, my. This is now the site of the Surfside condo collapse. Photos taken yesterday.

  • Woah. Story. (Includes video.)

  • This story won't interest most of you, but I actually had a Houston lawyer a couple of months back reach out to me and tell me to watch this judge on Youtube as he held court. I did. You could tell something wasn't right. He wasn't mean or a bully, he was just "out there." 

  • I wonder if Nick Saban is telling the truth here. I bet he is, and I bet all of this paying of players is only going to get crazier. (Young, a sophomore, has 13 career completions at Alabama.) 

  • The NBA Draft is a crapshoot. (The peach background indicates a player who has appeared in at least one All-Star game.) But I suppose Mark Cuban wasn't in the room when this draft went down. 

  • Happy 81st birthday to Verne Lundquist. Before there was Dale Hansen, there was Verne at WFAA. He also was also on the Cowboys' radio broadcasts with Brad Sham. His line of, “Bless his heart, he's got to be the sickest man in America” for this dropped pass in Super Bowl XIII became famous despite most of us watching the game on TV instead of listening to the radio.
