Links and Cartoons for Saturday Morning

Links, Thoughts, and Open Thread
Posted by LewisvilleTexan on 2012/3/17 9:30:00 (813 reads)

Open in new windowOpen in new windowOpen in new windowGood morning! I'm just sitting here drinking coffee, trying to wake up. I was up late working on another post. We have more changes in store here at the LTJ, many of which I've spent a lot of time on, but are not yet rolled out. One thing we've done is switch to a new system for the Events Calendar, which I had previously been coding meticulously by hand, and which I had tried unsuccessfully to hand off to my youngest son. The new calendar cost us a few bucks, but seemed to be more feature-rich than the free one we had ages ago from Google. We're still in-process on loading all the events.

And of course, as always there are many more things to talk about than I have the time to cover. I'm always looking for writers who have the time to take on a subject for us, so if you have a topic you want to see covered, and we're not getting to it, give it some thought.

We only have a few links this morning:

Denton Record Chronicle says an Attorney General review has been requested regarding DCTA's compliance with open meetings laws.

DRC also reports that the University of North Texas is proposing a 3.95% tuition hike, bringing the total cost of a 15 hour semester to $4,567 for next year. Our own Brandon Cooper, writing for the NT Daily called it last year.

A State Trooper was injured by a DWI suspect he was trying to arrest. The trooper shot at the suspect, but missed.

Some homes in Lewisville were vandalized with Swastikas and graffiti mentioning Kony 2012. If you find graffiti, you can have it removed at no cost under Lewisville's graffiti abatement program.

Comedian Gallagher is said to be expected to come out of his medically induced coma in a Lewisville hospital today.

The Lewisville Leader has the story about the Lewisville Summer Musicals, which will play at the MCL Grand Theater this Summer.

George Clooney and his father, as well other high-profile people, including members of Congress were arrested for protesting at the Sudanese embassy in Washington, DC.

 Open Thread: Kid's Nicknames
Okay, I was driving around Lewisville the other day and saw a car with a high school aged young lady in it. On the rear window in large letters was written "Juicy J" which is apparently her nickname. I asked myself what kind of parent would let their teenaged daughter drive around with "Juicy J" written on her car. That's disgusting! At best, according to urbandictionary.com, it means she has sex appeal, big breasts and a big butt at worst, according to the same source, it means she is wet. I wouldn't want my daughter referred to by a name with either of those definitions! I wonder if the parents even know what the nickname means.

Maybe Juicy was her mother?

I've noticed the "Juicy" thing before - usually spelled out in rhinestones across a skank's butt. But some folks think "Juicy is the new Black".

Sometimes, (like when they haven't destroyed anything expensive in awhile) I am glad we had boys. It'll be a cold day in hell before either of them walks around with their britches down around mid thigh, with 12 inches of boxer shorts showing.

BTW, I've noticed a trend: What is it with rhinestones on butts lately? It seems like if you had 100 young women (under lets say 25 years old) at any given time, something like 65 of them would be wearing jeans bedazzled with sparkling rhinestones across the derriere. (As if we men needed more of a distraction) All I've got to say is don't lean on my car wearing those things.

 Open Thread: OKGO
I have seen the Rube Goldberg machine video to this song but I ran across this version this week. It is sure to make any bandie present or past smile plus the song has a great message. I LOVE OKGO!!!

By the way, the comments on YouTube state that this is the Notre Dame band. I wanted to give them credit.

This one is awesome! I laughed my butt off at how ridiculous and expensive, yet supremely creative this is.
