Random Friday Morning Thoughts

Yep, it happened. 

  • Remember that horrific shooting caught on video on a porch in Lubbock late last year? Nothing will be done about it.  

  • Insert record scratch sound effect. Story. (She wasn't wrong about that.)

  • The lawyer, who I have great respect for, made it a little clearer in the story:  “Timing is everything,” Ball said. “I would not suggest somebody robbing someone holding an AR-15.” Yep, that's the way you say it. The defense claim is that the boys arranged to buy the AR-15 and then tried to rob him. 

  • I don't understand why Fox News thinks its audience wants this. They spend half their time trying to root out the transgendered.  

  • And you're telling me it's a news channel and not a propaganda channel? This morning:  

  • We need more street artists in this world. 

  • I'll say it again: I don't understand the lawsuit by Jerry Jones alleged daughter. It's not about money, and she really has nothing to gain by being declared Jones' biological daughter. And if it is about being "released" by some non-disclosure agreement that her mother signed, this seems to be a moot point: She just blurted out everything in the lawsuit which she claims she isn't allowed to say. 
    • And this seems to be a little-reported new claim by Jones which he just made about that non-disclosure agreement: 

    • Unrelated. I had never seen this: That's Jerry. And I'm guessing that's Charlotte and Stephen. 

  • As of midnight, the National Archives released the paper records of the 1950 census. You can search by name, county, and state. I found my great-grandfather and wife living in Wise County. (I already knew he had been here since 1905.) The sheets also list where each person was born and occupation if they revealed it.  My suspicions that I had farming genes turned out to be correct. I knew it!

  • Tiktok in a nutshell: 

  • Random basketball note: LSU fired its coach about a week ago. This week, 10 of its 11 players on the roster entered the transfer portal
  • 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: 1,001 days.
  • Messenger: Above the Fold
