Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

This is a follow-up to yesterday's 10 year post. This was the press conference associated with it. It had to be held at the convention center due to the media crush. Man, that's a lot of cameras.

  • Some aftermath photos of Wise County Heritage Museum.

  • You know, this wasn't even the lead story on WFAA at 6:00 p.m. last night. There's a dead student for crying out loud.  We don't know much other than the shooter is younger than 17 years of age since he's being held at the Tarrant County Juvenile Center. 

  • The Dairy Queen era in Bridgeport is officially over as the sign was removed and replaced yesterday.

  • I think the new four minute compilation video of the Uvalde shooting that the Texas Tribune has put together is really flying under radar. There is some incredible footage in it. And it shows what we all knew: The cops were scared to go in because that kid had a weapon they didn't think they could couldn't compete with. And, honestly, you can kind of see why when three of them were almost gunned down in the hallway.  Story

  • Is it indictment and arrest day for Trump as he promised? Most people seem to say no despite what Trump is screaming about into the void. But there are signs of at least something . . . 

    • Meanwhile, Ron DeSantis finally took a shot a Trump yesterday: “Look, I don’t know what goes into paying hush money to a porn star to secure silence over some type of alleged affair. I just can’t speak to that.”

    • Trump did not take kindly, and fired back: 

    • In a new video yesterday, Trump continues to act crazier and crazier. Fittingly, he will hold a rally in Waco of all places on Saturday. Side note: Newsmax had a very enthusiastic supporter on yesterday who dropped a major F bomb.
  • They just keep coming. Three of the four were women. I would consider all of them to the batch of "not normal" Republicans.

  • A 22% proposed increase would boost the starting salary to $170,800.
  • Sheesh, just divorce her. 
  • I use to rail about the secrecy around police license plate readers, but now they are openly placed in agendas. North Richland Hills is spending well over a $1 million on them.
