Random Friday Morning Thoughts

The missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370 (which, I guess, is still missing) gave rise to wild speculation in the days after it happened. None quite as bold as the theory that the pilots were pirates who had been paid off and delivered the plane to third parties. 

  • Wise County avoid bad weather last night, but some places didn't. These photos are from Lantana which is just west of Argyle.  Later in the night, massive storms moved through at 2:00 a.m. but developed just south of Wise County hitting Weatherford and then traveling through the metroplex. 

  • Ken Paxton has killed Pornhub in Texas. I've said it before, for a man who has a lot of vices, he sure sues to eliminate a lot of vices.
    • Details: "Pornhub, one of the most visited websites in the world, sued Attorney General Ken Paxton last year to block enforcement of a 2023 state law that requires websites that host pornography to institute age-verification measures and display health warnings on its pages.Pornhub disabled its website in Texas after the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the age-verification requirement in a ruling last week . . . ."

    • When they tell you it's about the children, it's never about the children. None of them cared to do anything after Uvalde.  

  • Whether you testify in your own defense or not (he didn't but his wife dead), you're probably going to be convicted when the State goes after you. 
  • Lo and behold, after years of complaining by me, the Tarrant County Medical Examiner finally issues a finding that makes sense to me. They are doctors. The only thing they can tell you is why a body stopped functioning from a physiological standpoint (a bullet hit the heart). They have no business of giving an opinion as to what happened before that (how the bullet came to be fired from a gun.)

  • Trump trial news:
    • I don't think the judge will force her off the case, but the damage is done. She should get out and save face after one of the greatest unforced errors of all time. 
    • And other prosecutors are having to pay for screw-ups as well. Yesterday the DA in New York agreed to Trump's continuance request in the Stormy Daniels "business records" case because the federal prosecutors, who had previously investigated the case, finally dumped "tens of thousands of pages" of documents on both the D.A. and Trump after Trump's lawyers requested them. 

  • Yesterday, Aaron Rodgers denied he ever said that Sandy Hook did not happen. But noticeably absent is him denying that he said Sandy Hook was an "inside job."  He did not refute the part of the report which  said he "thought it was off that there were men in black in the woods by the school, falsely claiming those men were actually government operatives."

  • Eight million people now live in the metroplex.  That's the equivalent of the population of New York City (not just Manhattan, but all five burroughs.)

  • Flashback.  This really did happen. (Also, the MyPillow guy has been in the news this week by saying that he had explosive new evidence that the election was stolen and he would hand deliver it on "Friday on the steps of the Supreme Court, 3 p.m." He such a nutcase.)

  • 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: 4 years and 263 days.
