Random Friday Morning Thoughts

The whole story is too confusing to summarize, but this was a great picture of the Dallas D.A. being called as a witness where he refused to testify. 

  • We've got a play in only two Acts.
    • Act I: Last November, in an elaborate press conference, he angrily denied allegations of sexual harassment made by six people. 

    • Act II: Yesterday.

  • The Cartel dropping off some guys who were (allegedly) responsible for the Matamoras kidnappings/murders and leaving an apology note is next level crime etiquette. 

  • Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell, 81, fell at a D.C. hotel and suffered a concussion which required hospitalization.

  • Not that it matters politically, but Trump has been "invited" to appear before a New York state grand jury next week in the Stormy Daniels probe -- which apparently is a clear sign he's about to get indicted. 

    • Trump then went on a a multi-post post rant where he denied every having sex with her despite paying off the National Enquirer to kill the affair story. And he still thinks its a good idea to call her a "Horseface." That alone will kill him in front of a jury. Did I mention there is no bottom?

  • Oh, my. A little excitement at the Wilmington International Airport in North Carolina last night. 

  • Man, does he ever. Audio. Language warning.

  • A nutty moment in a high profile Waco murder case involving Fort Worth defense lawyers happened yesterday when a wheels-off juror was removed because he had been monitoring social media about the trial and shared hot opinions with other jurors.  He took the 5th when questioned by the judge.  (You can see a Twitter play by play of the event on this reporter's feed if you scroll down.)

  • I'm seeing conflicting ages for the 17 year old's pregnant girlfriend. 

  • Big 12 Tourney: Texas rolls, TCU rolls, Kansas rolls, and #10 Baylor got beat because they were out-rebounded 44 to 17 in what may be the laziest team in the history of ever. I'm bitter. 

  • 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, 249 days.
