Random Friday Morning Thoughts

I guess it was a little different 10 years ago. 

  • Which got me to thinking about just last year in DFW. Remember this?: 

  • But don't let 2021 get lost in the shuffle. I love this photo so much. 

  • Here's a neat up-to-date nationwide wind map. Current wind chill map as of 8:00 a.m.: 

  • A budget bill of $1.7 trillion passed the Senate last night which got the far, far right worked up for some reason. Texas:

  • I'm sticking by my "not the busiest" day at airports position, but cancellations can certainly make it look that way. This pretty amazing 30 second scan of the line at Love Field right now looks like a beating. And that's one incredibly long line.

  • Light reading: The complete 814 page January 6th Report was released last night. 

  • With the trial of Aaron Dean going on, another one in Tarrant County didn't get much attention. No conviction there. Michael Campbell and Andrew Wilkerson were listed as the defense lawyers. Prosecutors were Bill Vassar and Matthew Jackson.

  • Air Force 30, Baylor 15. And it wasn't that close. Merry Christmas to me!

  • I won't be here Monday. I've already received the Heisman for THWMISB™ 2022.
  • 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, 171 days.
