Random Friday Morning Thoughts

Dez was ruled out because his fingertips touched out of bounds first. But, yep, both those photos are from the same play.

  • Elon Musk has locked all the doors at Twitter offices as he layoffs 3,700 people today  . . . 

    • . . . and they are learning their fate via email.

    • But he may be violating a 60 day notice law for mass layoffs. 

  • There was a car chase in Dallas yesterday where the guy ditched the car and jumped in a buddy's SUV which had pulled up to help him.  And there was a baby transfer at the same time! Video of that moment.

  • The heat continues to rise under the $300,000 Man. This opinion piece today says it's not just about Uvalde -- there are a series of incidents demonstrating how he has lied to us for years. 

  • The fire chief in this video has a weird presentation feature where he appears to be smiling when he talks even thought I really don't think he intends to be smiling. Seems like that would be problematic for him. 

  • Jeff Bezo's ex gives away a ton of money, and this gift came as a complete surprise to the school. (And did you know she is already divorcing the husband she married after the divorce from Bezos?)

  • That judge is a bit of a nut. There's no lawyer, criminal defense or prosecutor, who thinks this is a good idea.

  • Random odd story.

  • CNN is trying to have more conservatives on the network, but I was surprised last night to see Jake Tapper welcoming Tom Cotton on as a guest to hawk his new book.  And Cotton really revised history when he told Tapper that the U.S. had the Vietnam war won until Watergate came along. 

  • Jerry Jones caught a little heat from The National Federation of the Blind about this Halloween photo where he dressed up as a blind referee. But I'm more surprised ultra-MAGA hasn't stormed Jerryworld over the guy dressed in drag on the right. 

  • I know this is long, but look at the ridiculous combinations of playoff possibilities in Bridgeport's district.  It's comically complicated for every team.  (Update: Bridgeport lost last night 71-43 to Sanger after this piece went to press.)

  • Former Cowboy and Little Elm grad Cole Beasley supporting a guy who just got suspended for making anti-Jewish comments and refusing to apologize for it..

  • 50 days away from Christmas Eve. 100 days away from the Super Bowl.
  • Time which has passed since the Wise County Sheriff's Office, despite having a full male DNA profile, has failed to solve the murder of Lauren Whitener in her home at Lake Bridgeport: 3 years, 122 days.
