Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

That was Carlos Correa. This spring he became the highest paid infielder in Major League Baseball earning $35.1 million a year. 

  • This will just be quick hits. My schedule is pushing me around today. 
  • The New York Times did a deep dive into Deshaun Watson. I don't know what to think about it all, other than 66 massage therapists over a 17 month period seems to be a red flag. (You think the Cleveland Browns, who just agreed to pay him  $230,000,000 over five years -- all guaranteed -- are sweating?)

  • There's not a kid of the 70s that doesn't have a special attachment to "Summer Breeze."

  • These headlines were everywhere yesterday. It sounds kind like a brilliant ply by Target to advertise a big summer sale disguised as "business news."

  • The San Francisco DA lost a recall election last night.  I understand being innovative and "smart on crime" instead of just wanting to put people in cages, but you can't be an ultra-liberal DA. No one wants that.

  • Matthew McConaughey choking up in the White House briefing room yesterday as he pointed out the green shoes worn by 10 year old Uvalde victim Maite Rodrigue . It's worth 40 seconds of your time. "These are the same green Converse on her feet that turned out to be the only clear evidence that could identify her after the shooting."

  • I can see a day where every future school bit has a wing for the local police substation. It would require some kind of weird city/school district arrangement, but it could be done. 
  • Someone needs to explain governmental immunity to me because none of these stories ever make sense to me. 

  • "An abortion rights activist stripped down to her underwear and yelled, "My body, my ----ing choice" in Joel Osteen's church during his sermon. Video.
