Random Friday Morning Thoughts

Spoiler alert: The Bridgeport hospital did not stay open.

  • It's St. Patrick's day. And it is still the greatest newscast of all time.

  • Compare and contrast these two stories coming out on the same day in Wichita Falls about a high profile capital murder case that just wrapped up.
    • Story One: Taxpayer's paid a bunch to convict defendant who had huge financial resources.

    • Story two:

  • 14 and 45

  • Fox News is still peddling this silliness to its evening audience.

  • Respect For the Second Amendment Act? Are we going to have to bow down before it now? How about the kids in Uvalde saying a pledge of allegiance to it?  Hey, a law that forces us to have respect for any subject is baloney.

  • This is kind of a weird thing to do. He couldn't sell it at a listing of $8.5 million so he is going the auction route with a starting bid of $2.5 million.  Then again, who can argue with a man who ran RadioShack. The story says he retired in 2015 which, I determined, is the same year the company declared bankruptcy. (The property is in the Tanglewood area near TCU.)

  • Trump is going very 1930s Germany by releasing a dark video where he said Russia is not our greatest threat but that America ("ourselves") is as he blamed the border (Hispanics), collapse of the "nuclear family" (guess who), "rogue" big cities (name your minority) and those who would make us a "Godless nation worshiping at the alter of race, gender, and environment." It's all coded language.

  • You don't hear much about it, but the federal seditious conspiracy trial in D.C. against the Proud Boys is now completing week ten. And the prosecution hasn't rested yet. 
  • I keep coming back to the highlighted portion of this story.  But here's the video of the aggressive monkey and, I promise you, it's worth watching just to hear the country guy say, "What's a monkey doing in Oklahoma!!!" 

  • Finally an unflattering article on Troy Aikman. I bet he's a royal prima donna. Not to mention not having a lick of a sense of humor.

  • Liberally Lean Tourney Day 1.

  • 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, 256 days.
