Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

Decatur's football coach abruptly left. He would stay eight years in Frisco going 42-44 at Independence High School before "retiring" at age 56. But eight months ago he was hired as athletic director at Fort Worth Christian. 

  • At about 5:00 a.m. this morning, the Senate finally approved a $50 billion aid package to Ukraine on a 70-29 vote. The MAGA controlled House, in typical isolationist form, is expected to reject. it.

  • The Decatur Varsity girls basketball team had a playoff game last night against Wichita Falls. That is, if you can call it a game. Good lord: 

  • "Dash-cam footage released of the Bombardier Challenger 600 jet crash on Interstate 75 in Naples, Florida" from last Friday. 

  • Fox4Terry was on the job last night. "Irving police say two people injured, both expected to recover in this overnight fiery crash. This occurred along SB Loop 12 at the Trinity River and is expected to take hours to clean up."

  • Trump met his deadline to appeal to the Supreme Court yesterday about his "absolute immunity" claim. Here's the status: The D.C. Insurrection case is still on hold. The Supreme Court, in addition to deciding whether to hear the immunity claim, will more pressingly decide whether that stay is dissolved or remains in place. Expect a decision on that probably within 10 days. 

  • Sheesh.

  • We've got a photo of the shooter at Joel Osteen's church.  And some more details: "While working security, two off-duty officers confronted Moreno, who fired several rounds [with an AR-15] and indicated that she had a bomb. The officers returned fire, killing her and injuring a 56-year-old man in the hip and the 5-year-old boy who was with Moreno."

    • Fox News hates transgendered people so much that it jumped a gun on a headline yesterday before retracting it.

  • This will officially turn the Republican Party into the Trump Party. He will run it all.


  • I hate Paxton, but I agree with him on this. This isn't the Whistleblowers suit but the securities case from Collin County where the special prosecutors have been whining about not being paid for over nine years. 

  • An old tweet by Troy Aikman came back to haunt him yesterday.  I bet that guy is insufferable. 

  • Inflation numbers were just released for January at 3.1% compared to prices from a year before. It's slowing but not quite as much as expected (I think.)  The Fed wants that number at 2%.
