Random Friday Morning Thoughts

Man, that was a random hot sports opinion I issued. And accurate. #SportsGenius

  • I'd suggest picking up a Messenger or subscribing online to read the recap of the Ronnie Brezina murder trial this week. The background of the victim communicating her fears to others before the deadly event is really wild. The trial continues next week. 

  • It looks like the most contested race in Wise County will be for County Clerk. So far, we have four: John Curry, Blanca Tuma, Raquie Gasperson and Walter Harvey.
    • The filing deadline for all elections is Monday at 6:00 p.m. 
  • Just east of the Decatur water tower located at 287 and 380, you might have seen tons and tons of dirt brought in for some kind of project. I finally learned what is going on: The construction of a new apartment complex.
  • News from overseas this morning on Wikileaks. I honestly haven't figured out how I feel about this guy.

  • Verdicts from yesterday:

    (The AP didn't include this collage with the news bulletin.)

  • I don't remember the Dallas DA's race being this close four years ago. They will go at it again in March:

  • That letter is s a "b"! Spoiler alert: "The Kindred/Anderson family does not expect to receive any money from the judgment, according lead attorney John Flood."

  • The Cartel murder of the attorney in broad daylight at the Southlake town square might be one of the craziest things that has ever happened. We need a documentary on it. There is at least now a Spanish version in the works: 

  • January 6th investigation notes:
    • The DC Appellate Court ruled yesterday that the National Archives must turn over documents from the Trump Administration regarding January 6th. The only remaining remedy for Trump is a Supreme Court appeal.  My prediction: They won't touch it.  

    • And Republican Liz Chaney, who is on the committee, is going full speed ahead:
    • For Trump and his cohorts to create an actual Power Point presentation outlining their illegal coup to overturn an American election took great hutzpah. It is right out of a scene from The Wire where Stringer Bell has to ask, "What are you doing?" followed by "Is you taking notes on a [effing] criminal conspiracy?"

  • Hot real estate opinion: I think one of the biggest lies during the recent real estate boom is the sentence "Homes placed on the market routinely get multiple offers for more than the asking price."  To be true, there would have to be an plethora of realtors not knowing the market value of homes. 
  • Not only do I not understand comparing the burning of the Fox News Christmas tree to Pearl Harbor, I don't understand any of this.

  • For criminal law practitioners only: The Fort Worth Court of Appeals gave the Fourth Amendment a rare win yesterday. Shoutout to defense lawyer Ray Napolitan on the win. 
  • 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: 889 days.
