The Campaign For DA

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts



Before there was Fuzzy's on the square in Decatur, we had South Beach. This is the anniversary when things did not go well for it. 

  • Post publish edit: The Little Ball of Insurrection™ is going to be live in studio on The Ticket at 1:45 today for half an hour.  
  • We had hail!
    • WFAA: Hail tracking across Wise County last night: 

    • I think this video refers to Heritage Creek North subdivision which is actually about six miles or so southeast of Decatur. 

    • Channel 11 with a couple of photos. This one would be from the same general area:

    • Balsora:

  • Now for the cold. Delkus says we are smack dad in the middle of a Winter Storm Warning.  

    • Official Prediction: Wednesday morning is a coin flip. Thursday is a problem. At this point, I think Thursday morning will leave us with icy roads. Wednesday morning? Sheesh. That's a tough one, pal. At 7:00 a.m. tomorrow, chances of precipitation are around 30% to 45% with temperatures in the upper 20s but we won't crack freezing all day.  Thursday morning we are looking at 80% chance with temps in the low 20s. Plan accordingly.
  • Not exactly. Mexico got screwed over when the Texas territory was taken away from them by force. The Soviet Union voluntarily cut Ukraine loose in 1991.  

  • If people need this explained to them, we've got big trouble. 

  • "Led the fight." 

  • We've now reached the stage of politics where (1) the truth doesn't matter, and (2) common decency doesn't matter. There has to be a fancy word for that, right?
  • It's 2-22-22. 
  • Not nerdy legal stuff:

  • If The Graduate were rewritten today, I would replace "plastics" with "warehouses." (Does anyone understand that reference?)

  • Speaking of dated movies, the Ticket had been running some kind of promo where the voice-over guy said, "Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?"  One show mentioned that the station had received a ton of messages complaining that the statement was factually inaccurate. But can you really blame them? Animal House is now 44 years old. 

  • I don't know if it is any good, but the Messenger has released an app for Apple and Android devices.
