The Campaign For DA


Random Monday Morning Thoughts

Remember that game next time someone says he should be in the Cowboys' Ring of Honor. And the single playoff win. (I don't hate the guy -- just think he was average.)

  • Saturday: Police in Indonesia fire tear gas to stop the storming of the field. A stampede broke out and as a result we've got more people killed than in Hurricane Ian.

  • Remember that sailor accused of the billion dollar arson of the ship in San Diego? He was found not guilty. So either he didn't do it and/or I continue to believe that proving a fire was intentionally set is next too impossible.  Heck, I think even determining that a fire was intentionally set is basically impossible.

  • Just a message that Democracy is Dead. Totally normal. (From Saturday's rally, And the fact he's even doing those rallies is very, very weird.) 

  • A recent Wise County case that was in the Messenger made it to the big city paper. And I was told it was the "Hollywood Knowledge" questions on KCSC this morning (although I don't know what that means.)  

  • Ted Cruz filming himself buying beer and talking to the camera is the most cringe-inducing thing you'll see all day.

  • Follow-up from last week: (1) So a Florida sheriff can just go on Good Morning America and falsely proclaim "hundreds" are "definitely" dead from the hurricane and we just give him a pass? (2) Here's the probable cause affidavit of the warden of an ICE facility shooting immigrants. 

  • I've never so wanted to go near a boat in my life. 

  • It's pronounced fen-tuh-nil and not fent-ah-null.  It's the new nuclear. 
  • I'm not sure why the AP decided to drop a bombshell article about Ken Paxton on a bury-the-news Friday afternoon. 

  • This was in Ohio, and it may be about as mad as I've ever seen people. Video - Extreme language warning. And those weights being popped out of the fish is quite the sight.

  • The Price is Right on Friday:

  • This photo was on the cover of the Dallas Morning News on Sunday. It's a curious choice, but there's a lot subtly going on there. 

  • If you've got 42 seconds, listen to play-by-play man Tim Brando try to guess this puzzle during the UT game. 

  • College football: (1) I'm not convinced TCU is for real, (2) OU's defense is shockingly bad, (3) Jimbo Fisher's Aggies have the name record as the fired Kevin Sumlin, 37-16 (4)  Baylor's all yellow uniforms should be burned, (5) Never bet college football, (6) Opening Big 12 lines:

  • Aaron Judge's last chance to break the American League and Yankee home run record in Arlington. Four games beginning tonight.
