Fort Worth Officer Smoked Pot in Police Car

A citizen saw him sitting there in his patrol car, smoking pot, and turned him in.

Perhaps FW should run an IQ test for all  incoming new hires.

David Brown, Dallas’s New COP

He won out over 5 other guys under consideration for the same appointment. One of them as far away as Louisville Kentucky.

David Brown spent the last 5 years working second in command to the current Chief, who’s imminent retirement demands a new chief be named to replace him.

Chief Brown is from Texas, actually born/raised in a Dallas suburb. His stake is here, along with his fam and friends.You don’t get any more real/local/native than that. Brown is a hardliner, a by-the-book man. I imagine he’ll do very well. And with all the scandals involving Dallas law enforcement and city council members over the past few years, Dallas needs a good name and a good rep.

Some articles just released on Mr. Brown’s appointment:

Who Have We Become?


The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency.

It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to an electorate willing to have such a man for their president.

The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

The republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.” Author Unknown



DFW Quakes & Drilling Procedures

In an article released Wednesday (March 11th) by our local NBC affiliate online news source, the author cites the findings of two studies by local universities that present a theory on the cause of at least some of the earthquakes that North Texas has been experiencing.

The article states that both SMU and UT have conducted the same studies and drawn similar conclusions. The studies seem to indicate that the quakes may not be linked to the actual drilling, but to the procedure done after the drilling, the disposal of the waste water used during the drilling process.

Waste water is injected deep into the earth after it’s no longer needed. Studies are showing that the quakes are found at the same depth as the waste water disposal depth.

White House TV

WDC001

Wow, this is interesting. I vaguely remember watching/reading something on this a while back.

Just launched today (April 1, 2009). Whitehouse.com, and  Whitehouse network and TV.

I hope this enterprise does well, it’s innovative, it’s smart, it’s needed, and it’s technologically cool. 🙂

The goals expressed for this endeavor are:

  • Claims to be the first live online political news network.
  • Promises to be  neutral and non-partisan
  • Will strive to consistently provide direct current info on American polity and provide real-time updates on the actions/goings on of our elected leaders.
  • It promises to allow a place/opportunity for Americans to express their opinions on current issues.
  • Live talk show with call-in capability using skype, cell,  and landline phones.
  • User generated content. They’re offering the platform for anyone to implement their own live call-in talk show with call-in  and live chat capability using their network. All you’ll need would be a camera and computer with internet connection.
  • Offer a toolkit for more experienced videographers to create more polished self-created shows.
  • Promise their hosted programs and productions will be consistent with the type of professional programming we’re used to seeing on the regular tv channels from the syndicates (CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX, etc).
  • Plans to air newscasts 3 times daily, morning, noon, evening, with one special evening program nightly to start out.
  • Their goal is to go to 24 a day programming eventually
