Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

The marriage between Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison officially lasted from May 20, 2011 until March 2020 -- although they separated in 2017. 

  • The Department of Justice filed its response to Trump's request for a "special master" to inspect the documents taken from Mar-a-Lago. Not only does this get worse for Trump, we've now got a photo of some of the items recovered -- all of which are clearly marked. 
    There are people in prison for far less

    He was trying to hide them

    They lied about previously turning them all over

  • The last leader of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev, has died.  A whole lot has changed.

  • There was a crazy police chase with bullets flying which ended up at crash at 377 and Loop 820 in Haltom City. But I did notice how it all got started because I've been talking about this for years: "Police said they received an alert from their Flock license plate cameras that they detected the stolen car."

  • Fort Worth ISD decided on a new superintendent last night. I find it a little strange that she just started at Midland ISD in February of 2021 and 30 days ago signed a new three year contract with them which was to pay her $310,000 annually. (Midland ISD posted the contract online.)

  • Compare and contrast:
    • President Biden was spot on yesterday.

    • Meanwhile, Trump was on an unhinged social media storm and riling up the nutty Q-Anon crowd by reposting them. Yep, he's now expressly recruiting the QAnon crowd in plain sight. He does everything in plain sight. 

    • And the Q-Anon crowd took notice.   

  • Hey, WCSO Information Services: Your publicly available PDF of the jail roster hasn't been updated in 24 hours. 
  • Hide your children!

  • Bridgeport has installed wind guards at its stadium which looks really nice. But I think "Bridgeport Sissies" in big lettering directly behind the home bench might cause some confusion for the uninitiated visitor crowd. (I'm on record of being a big fan of the girls' nickname by the way.)

  • If you work for Travis County, you'll get at least $20 an hour

  • This is really old news but it's showing up again. One of the former prosecutors says that the outgoing DA has a personal beef with her. I think she might be right. It is very un-Sharen Wilson like to go against a prosecutor and side with a man who will forever be convicted of capital murder. 

  • I've got friends in Abilene and this case is the talk of the town. A murder of a real estate agent occurred in 2016. The arrest of his brother-in-law wasn't made until 2020. It's all circumstantial.
