I’m finding more and more parents are taking their kids out of school to take a vacation to places like Disney World. I think that sets a horrible precedent on priorities and gives the kids a false sense of entitlement and exceptionalism.
My father forbid me from leaning on a car saying the buttons or the metal stuff on jeans could scratch the paint.
It’s frustrating to hear pundits claim the government shut down has no effect on everyday lives. Try telling that to the government employees who are the sole breadwinner for their family trying to figure out when they will get their next paycheck or be able to pay the upcoming mortgage or car payment, or to the owners and workers of businesses that operate outside of our national parks or federal buildings.
There’s been a law since 1995 that requires Texas drivers to set their parking brakes every time they leave their vehicle?
I’m calling it now, TIME’s Person of Year will be Pope Francis.
I think most Texas Democrats stopped voting in guberatorial races because they knew there was no way their candidate had a chance. If Wendy Davis stands a chance, they can no longer stay home on election day. With her, they might just be motivated, and even with that, it’s gonna be on heck of an uphill battle. I think the last time we had some fireworks in a Texas gubernatorial race was when George W. Bush beat Ann Richards.
I’m surprised the Capitol and DC police weren’t more aggressive with that driver yesterday. At one point the car was pinned in front of barriers and I would have thought being at such close range they would have shot the tires out. There’s no telling if that car was loaded with explosives and where it was going. But then again, there was a child in the car and I know nothing of real police work other than what I see on the tele. Gosh, I feel for that girl and what she had to go through.
‘Parks and Recreation’ had another overly obvious Microsoft Surface product placement.
There’s a Comic Com in Irving this weekend, I love how people dress up for those things.
I caught a bit of that red carpet special on CBS11 for the National Football Foundation Honors Jerry Jones and Peter King was interviewed. I forget what he was asked, but he talked about how Jerry was giving him a tour of the new stadium and how if the team was 5-9 in December he still had to do things to attract people to the stadium and heavily cited the artwork.
I saw an Iowa State linebacker last night who rigged his jersey so he could show off his stomach. I think that use to be a thing in the 90’s.
I didn’t watch any NFL football last night but I hear the first down line on the screen was pink. I wish the NFL would just dedicate a week towards breast cancer awareness instead of a month.
Man, those Cleveland Browns are something else as of late. I know they just played Buffalo, but they’re on a nice streak.
