Skattershooting for no apparent
Barry Green is the District Attorney
for the 271st Judicial District.
In the National Spelling Bee Finals
held on June 1, 2000, the top three finishers had something in common:
they were all home schooled.
Last month, in order for DNA tests
to be performed, Gov. George Bush granted a last minute stay of execution
for convicted child killer Ricky McGinn. Wonder why? One day before the
stay was granted, attorney Barry Scheck’s stated on NBC’s Today Show
that the DNA analysis would occur even if McGinn was executed.
Bush had no choice. If the execution occurred and the DNA later exonerated
McGinn (which it did not), then the Bush campaign would be DOA in November.
Did you see that after an audit
of the bills of the now rich lawyers who represented the State of Texas
in the tobacco litigation, the attorneys voluntarily returning $6.9 million
that the State had over-paid them in expense money. We are not talking
about attorney's fees - we're talking about reimbursement for hard expenses
that are supposed to be documented (copying, travel, telephone).
How did they make a $6.9 million dollar mistake?
The Southern Baptist Convention
desperately needs someone in charge of public relations who will simply
tell the powers at be to shut up. Every time they have their annual meeting
in June, they always take a position on an issue that gets them beaten
to death in the press. Sometimes it is women submitting to husbands, sometimes
its women and the clergy. Your free to believe whatever you wish, but do
you have to grab hold of a lightening rod every time you meet?
Howard Kurtz of the Washington
Post stated on the 6/14/00 episode of MSNBC’s The News With Brian
Williams that Gov. Bush admitted to reporters that he did not know
who Leonardo Decaprio was.
Judd Rose, an investigative reporter
for ABC who died prematurely of cancer, stated that he enjoyed “comforting
the afflicted and afflicting the comfortable”.
Did you see that Donato (“The Fisherman”)
Dalrymple of Elian Gonzales fame filed a $100 million dollar lawsuit last
month against Janet Reno for the “damages” he sustained during the FBI
raid last month. Since he didn't even live in the home, what was he doing
there in the first place you ask? He claims he was outside at 4:00 a.m.
protesting and decided to enter the home shortly before the raid to catch
a nap on the couch. Hmmm.
Not to beat up on Bush, but politicians
drive me crazy for their inability to answer a direct question. Check
out the governor failing to answer Sam Donaldson's simple question
about whether Christian Family Values Guru James Dobson is correct in his
assertion that Bush will not win the presidency without a strong pro-life
vice president. By the way, Al Gore is no better.
I think I'd rather watch paint dry
than view another episode of Survivor.
There didn't seem to be much of
a public outcry when the Tarrant County jury could not reach a verdict
as to whether Richard Franks abducted Opal Jennings.
Do you really care if Hillary Clinton
rattled off a racial slur 26 years ago?
Ted Nugent pulled out of a Houston
concert after he balked at signing an agreement that would have prohibited
him from saying on stage: "everyone should learn to speak English or get
the $&#$ out of the country". Apparently, Cat Scratch Fever
and Wang Dang Sweet _____ are OK, but otherwise we'd like for you
not to offend anyone.
edition of 11/3/99 made this comment about Dallas ISD Superintendent
Bill Rojas: "That man is a short timer".
Yesterday's Star Telegram
wrote that "After a lengthy debate and a series of procedural moves, a
divided City Council decided yesterday not to endorse a resolution calling
for an open-ended moratorium on the death penalty in Texas." Please explain
why any city council needs to express an opinion on a subject that they
have absolutely nothing to do with.
