Random Monday Morning Thoughts

The remarks were: "If I see a black kid in a hoodie on my side of the street, I'll move to the other side of the street."  But there was a little bit more to it

  • The Iranian president is dead after a helicopter crash. But it sounds like it won't cause any immediate political implications.

  • The Star-Telegram's Sunday edition examined the West Texas Oilman PAC and noted they have given $280,000 to Andy Hopper in Wise County. 

  • The ship is being moved at this moment, and it should take about three hours to get it to shore. Side note: What's in those crates that have been sitting there for weeks?

  • Trump and Abbott were in Dallas this weekend. I suppose there wasn't much a discussion about 19 dead elementary school kids in Uvalde.

  • What? A deep thinker like Romo supports Donald Trump? Video.

  • Friday follow-up:
    • This photo from Houston is fantastic. The lady has her car's fob in her hand, but I don't know if that is actually her car. 

    • The Internet came through after Scottie Scheffler's arrest on Friday morning. 

      So true
      That's on Friday. Note the guy with the t-shirt
      which already has that morning's mugshot.

    • Dog whistle for fascism.

  • I'm sure you saw the P Diddy video that CNN obtained. Man, that's bad.

  • Michael Irvin won't be charged in a case you won't even remember. A couple of months ago, the Allen PD mysteriously announced he was under investigation but didn't give any details. Now the PD says they won't file charges and still don't give any details about what the whole thing was about. Weird.

  • Legal nerdy stuff. (PDF.) Prosecutors tried to correct the error hours after it happened.
  • Pretty good little NASCAR fight this weekend. Although the initial part seems a little staged. Video.
  • The judge in Trump's criminal trial said closing arguments will be next Tuesday.
