Skattershooting while I look at how messy my
On a post-Christmas related note, do you remember
that scene from It's A Wonderful Life where the two guys turn a
key and the dance floor opens up over a swimming pool? I learned for the
first time last month that one of the actors was Carl
Switzer. Ring a bell? That's Alfalfa from The Little Rascals.
Pulp Fiction came on HBO the other night
and it reels me in every time. Amazingly, it is almost ten years old.
I've become a fan of HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm.
Surprise: The last Bachelor contestant,
Aaron, and his chosen gal, Helena, are not
getting married after all.
Have you ever seen the "man of god" who comes
on at 6:00 a.m. on one of the local channels? He hawks dietary supplements
that look bogus. Check out his web
site. If you don't want to buy any of his products, he'll take a donation.
Some news that no one really knows about: All
DWI defendants that blew into the Intoxilyzer 5000 machine at the Wise
County Sheriff's Office in April of 2002 (at least) had a gift arrive the
other day: All the results have been declared invalid by DPS. Every single
one of them! The frustrating part of it is that it took one of the cases
being called to trial, a jury brought in, and jury selection about to begin
before DPS finally told the prosecutors about the problem! I know. I was
there. (The prosecutors are looking into how widespread the problem was
and I'm anxiously awaiting the results.)
I bet the beer/wine election in Decatur passes.
If the votes were public record, I bet the beer/wine
election in Decatur would fail.
I wrote in The Spin that I couldn't believe
the Stephenville football coach receives thousands of dollars from a radio
show. Apparently, it's been going on in Bridgeport for a few years. Hey
Kyle Story, I'd look for the nearest microphone.
Can we please just invade Iraq and get it over
Did you catch Colt's QB Peyton Manning's comments
at the Pro Bowl about Colt's Kicker Mike Vanderjadt? Manning said he was
an "idiot kicker" who "got liquored up" and "ran his mouth." Vanderjadt
had criticized Manning for not being a team leader. Funny stuff.
I used to like Dallas mayor Laura Miller. Now
I'm not so sure.
Bill Parcell's really doesn't do much for me.
The State of the Union bores me to death - especially
the very slow start that it has. If I were President, I'd walk straight
up to the podium, tell everybody to sit down, and say "I know folks in
America have kids to feed, houses to clean and they have to go to bed soon
because they have to work tomorrow - so let's get this started right now."
I think I'd rather watch an Arena League Football
game that Major League Baseball game.
I still hate Bill O'Reilly of The O'Reilly
I'm fascinated with the case down in Houston where
on female dentist ran over and killed her husband-dentist after she caught
him at a hotel with another woman. For some crazy reason, she decided to
use the defense of "it was an accident." I would use the unwritten defense
of "I freaked out but he probably deserved it."
Michael "I'm Slowly Losing My Mind" Jackson will
say in his ABC interview tomorrow that when his third child was born he
grabbed it an ran out of the hospital - placenta and all. What a freak.
Channel 8's Scott Sams sure is soooooooo smug.
A great line I heard regarding the (silly) possibility
of the space shuttle Columbia being the target of terrorists: "If they
could do that, I really would be scared."
These new sized soft drink containers that are
long and skinny don't really make a lot of sense to me.
Shania Twain lip sync so badly at the Super Bowl
that she should be embarrassed. (Sting and the No Doubt chick managed to
sing live). But the most irritating part of Twain's performance was when
she began her short show by screeching "Let's go football fans!"
The two girls that are part of the Miller Light
commercial (they get in a fight, mud wrestle, etc.) were on The Ticket
(KTCK 1310) the other day. Those ladies are dumb, dumb, dumb.
I'll give the Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez marriage
There is nothing more predictable than any college
coach on National Signing Day: "We've got as good of a recruiting class
as I've seen since I've been here."
I don't think I've ever watched an episode of
SpongeBob SquarePants but the name makes me laugh.
I rented Magnolia the other day. Thumbs
Down. Make that three hours of thumbs down.
I rented an obscure Bill Murray film called Rushmore.
It might have been funny - I have to think about it a little more.
High school basketball sensation LeBron James
will have a tough time keeping his head on straight.
Since when have the Supreme Court Justices stopped
attending the State of the Union speech?
Did you know that no road can run perpendicular
to an Interstate Highway? That is, you'll never see a road end with a stop
sign as it meets an interstate roadway. Only on ramps and off ramps
the entire way.
One of the finalist on Joe Millionaire apparently
made a few bondage films. (see thesmokinggun.com).
It seemed a little funny the other night when "Joe" said he "bonded with
her" and she didn't seem "tied up" in his money. (I am not making that
Green served as District Attorney for Wise and Jack Counties from 1993
through 2000. He is now a partner in the Decatur law firm of Smith
