Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

Random news blurb I ran across.

  • There's nothing that gets your adrenalin running like hearing or reading the words, "If you live in [insert town/city/county] take cover immediately."

  • Jacksboro photos. (Edit after posting: Fox 4's helicopter was/is flying over the town this morning doing a live stream online, and the damage is far, far worse than just to the school. It's not just the schools. Multiple homes are destroyed. I was stunned by how bad it is.):
  • Some Decatur damage:

  • That is pretty wild footage from Bowie.

  • Southlake house fire after the storms went through the metroplex.

  • This is Amarillo this morning. It officially clocked in at 4.6 inches. Schools are closed

  • Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson's first day of hearings went off without a hitch. She didn't cry, nor did she profess how much she loved beer. 

  • I don't think it has been reported, but I was told that the father of the victim, 24 year old Curtis Stevenson, is a deputy in the Denton County Sheriff's Office. 

  • Kid Rock told Fox's Tucker Carlson that Trump once turned to him for help crafting a tweet about ISIS before also seeking his guidance about North Korea. “I’m like, ‘What? I don’t think I’m qualified to answer this,’”  In addition to seeking advice on what “we should do about North Korea,” he said Trump also let him look at “maps” during the visit. “I’m like, you know, like, ‘Am I supposed to be in on this sh--?’ Like I make dirty records sometimes. I do.” 

  • Former Dallas Mayor Pro-Tem has been released from federal prison -- news which became apparent after the Dallas Morning News' Robert Wilonsky spotted him at a convenience store. 

  • Arlington PD released your typical drug seizure picture yesterday, but does someone know what those (metal?) marijuana leaves are? And what prescription drugs are in those boxes? Let me hear from you. 

  • The videos of the stunt are in this thread. 

  • You have to zoom in a lot, but this Dallas Cowboys Scandals Bracket will bring back a lot of memories.

  • Wondering how long the Russia takeover of Ukraine remains on the front page.
