Bag of Randomness for Tuesday, February 19, 2019

  • I like to think I stay well-informed of current events and significant matters related to my state and family’s well-being, but I never heard of the Texas Department of Insurance until last night’s ‘CBS Evening News‘ – “The Texas Department of Insurance sets up mediations between insurance companies and out-of-network hospitals to resolve surprise medical bills.”
  • WifeGeeding is reading the 2014 New York Times #1 bestseller The One & Only, a novel by Emily Giffin. The book is fiction but includes a lot of Dallas references, but none more notable to me than something TICKET related:
  • Texas insurance surprise bill CBS news
  • Non-Spoiler True Detective tidbits:
    • This Vanity Fair article states eagle-eyed viewers would have caught a glimpse of the actor who played the shadowy billionaire owner of Hoyt Foods.
    • This other Vanity Fair article compares the fictional chicken tycoon and with his the real-life inspiration, Tyson Foods C.E.O. Don Tyson, also of Arkansas.

    I’m only aware of the department of insurance because I’ve dealt with them at work on occasion. They oversee other programs like workplace safety and amusement ride inspections.

    I didn’t catch the photo of Michael Rooker on True Detective, but that’s definitely his voice on the phone with Hays at the end of the last episode. I’m curious to see how it all plays out. They’re riding the rich guy pedophile ring angle pretty hard and that makes me think it’s something different.
