Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

Art Briles and Baylor on the cover of Texas Football before it all came crashing down. 

  • This year's cover was revealed Monday. Not exactly a work of art from a design standpoint. 

  • I saw this in downtown Decatur yesterday. Is it just a common thing now to see an upside down American flag flying from a pick-up truck? Is this the new normal started by the Insurrection and resurrected by Justice Alito?

  • I doubt this effort to overturn the pardon will go anywhere.  But the best argument is that he can't be pardoned yet because his conviction hadn't even become final (it it was still in the appellate process.)  But, still, this pardon is one of the most shocking events in the history of the Texas criminal justice system. Yet no one really seems to care.

  • We might have us a record hailstone recorded in Swisher County on Sunday.


  • No way! You mean the charade orchestrated by the three headed MAGA crew of Tarrant County DA, Sheriff, and County Judge was all for show?

  • Three years for words? She's already served the time for it, but still. "An Italian court on Wednesday re-convicted Amanda Knox of slander, upholding the only conviction still standing in association with the brutal murder of her roommate in 2007. The Florence court sentenced Knox to three years for slandering Patrick Lumumba, a Congolese bar owner, in a written statement following the murder of Meredith Kercher. Knox is not expected to serve the time, since she served about four years before her murder conviction was overturned."

  • Nothing quite like the son of Billy Graham invoking the 23rd Psalm to Trump after the Stormy Daniels fiasco. We live in Bizarro World.

  • Trump Florida Documents Case: I cannot begin to tell you how insane this is at the trial court level.

  • This settlement is really interesting. The prosecutor receive no money but Netflix did agree to donate $1 million to the Innocence Project. Meanwhile, the director of the film goes scorched earth on the former prosecutor. Link.

  • OU vs. The Evil Empire in the softball college world series starting tonight is delicious.
