see that Dennis Rodman's new 40' speed boat is named "Sexual Chocolate"?
if Gary Condit had anything to do with Chandra Levy's disappearance, but
what point was he trying to make by subjecting himself to the Connie Chung
of the Levy case, isn't the mother of Chandra just a little bit creepy?
saw Gladiator the other day. Very good flick.
Carter, new QB of the Dallas Cowboys, will not be in the league five years
has never been as much anticipation about the upcoming football season
than from the Texas Longhorn faithful. They are convinced that this year
is the year for a National Championship. Did you know the 'horns
haven't finished in the Top Ten since 1983?
it odd that George W. Bush, no matter what elementary school he visits,
always brings the same book to read to the kids: "The Very Hungry
Caterpillar". He has never read anything else to them. (See
Google search results)
a plane crashed in the Bahamas killing U.S. pop and soul singer Aaliyah
and eight others. I had never heard of her before.
note that the Dallas Morning News has killed its Thursday Technology

reporter Melissa Stark is incredibly hot.

driven the new section of the George Bush turnpike that connects I-35 in
Lewisville to the North Dallas Tollway? Very cool.
apparently thought it was important to criminalize the conduct of photographing
another having sex without that person's permission. Makes sense. The statute,
however, would make it a felony to photograph a bikini contest in Padre
host David Gold, a KLIF regular in the 1980s, is filling in this week on
the drive time shift on WBAP.
advertises itself as a "down the middle" news organization with its "We
Report. You Decide" slogan. It is, in my opinion, a mouthpiece for the
Republican Party. Bill O'Reilly, while funny, is so biased it taints his

is getting complicated. Type of Payment? Receipt? Car Wash? Foot Long Corn
Dog? Ok, maybe the last one is made up.
now come to the conclusion that Tim McGraw's Don't Take The Girl
is the worst song ever written.
know that a Chuck E. Cheese employee hand stamps every incoming group of
folks with a unique, yet invisible, number. When a child leaves the restaurant,
at least one adult who is accompanying him must have the same number as
the child on his hand.
11, 2001, MADD and the Denton County DA are holding a breakfast "to help
thank Texas Senator Jane Nelson for her efforts in passing the Open Container
law." Under Nelson's law, everyone can drive to the event drinking Bloody
Marys so long as they are in a limousine. If you are, say, in a five year
old Honda, however, your passengers do not receive such special treatment.
(By the way, I wasn't invited to this Made For Publicity Only event).
of MADD, as of September 1, 2001, their lobbying efforts have increased
the driver's license suspension period for refusing to provide a breath
specimen after being arrested for DWI to 180 days from 90 days. (Note,
this is even before a jury has a chance to hear the case). The result:
I guess the DWI problem has been solved.
know I also write The
Spin. I was flabbergasted today when a man, who I had never met,
dropped by my office because of something I had written about his plight
several months back. "I just wanted to come by and thank you personally,"
he said. It made my day.
ago, a buddy and I were out at Lone Star Park. We both talked about how
we were missing a huge opportunity by not investing in the NASDAQ.
fodor: I attended a DWI seminar the other day presented by my arch enemies:
The Texas District and County Attorneys Association. The program was riddled
with video clips of funerals for those killed by allegedly drunk drivers.
Prosecutors need to be objective. Not emotional.
the presenters was very proud of his conviction of Tera Fowler who was
involved in an accident that killed two young people. She was sentenced
to prison for Intoxication Manslaughter. I was a little disturbed, however,
because her blood-alcohol
concentration was .05, far below the legal limit.
President Bush want to vacation for a month in Crawford, Texas? If I were
president, I'd constantly be in Washington D.C. or on Air Force One for
a short appearance somewhere in the country or the world.

Date, which comes on TV way too late (Channel 238 on the Dish Network),
is very funny.
I am always
driving down Camp Bowie Boulevard in Fort Worth to attend driver's license
revocation hearings. Even on days of 100+ heat, there is some guy or gal
dressed up in a gorilla suit pushing a vacuum cleaner back and forth on
the pavement in order to call attention to a vacuum cleaner business. One
of these days I swear I'm going to stop and talk with him.
to offend the Wise County Internet folks, but there are some very lame
topics posted on the county's message
never be a county commissioner.
USA Today: 10,000 people a year visit the emergency room for methamphetamine
overdose (read "Nazi Meth Overdose" if you live in Wise County). Hmmm.
That is 28 people a day in a country with a population of 270,000,000.
Just wondering - How many people a day visit the ER because years of legal
cigarette use? Abuse of saturated fat? Not paying attention when carving
up an onion? Falling while roller blading?
Six Feet Under is weird but I can't stop watching it.
Taxi Cab Confessions is better.
