Wild Wild West

Any damsel that’s in distress
Be out of that dress when she meet Jim West.

Heard that silly song on the radio today. Made me remember how positively awful this movie (Wild Wild West, 1999) was. Not even the universally accepted Will Smith could help morph the old TV series into a watchable movie. Catchy lyrics, though.

New Year’s Tradition

Black eyed peas. Let’s face it… they’re boring. So jazz ’em up a bit!

2 cans black eyed peas, rinsed and drained
2 cans Rotel diced tomatoes with chiles
1 can corn
2-3 jalapeno peppers, diced and seeded (to taste)
1/2 bunch cilantro, finely chopped (to taste, it can be quite strong)
8 oz. zesty Italian dressing

Dump it all in a pan and let simmer until your team wins (or loses). Works well with corn bread (baked in cast iron, of course).

Legal Immunity

I live in Harris County, Texas. More is the pity. The District Attorney for Harris County is Chuck Rosenthal. I don’t like him. At all. “Why?” you may ask… Because this DA doesn’t play by the rules and he doesn’t think that the rules and the laws should apply to him. It has nothing to do with his party affiliation (he’s a Republican, though).

Rosy is the same turd muffin who decided a while back to ignore new legislation created by State lawmakers that allowed anyone who could legally own a firearm in Texas to carry one concealed while traveling in their vehicles. Rosy ordered all LEO’s in Harris County to ignore the statute and to continue issuing arrests and citations for carrying. At tremendous cost to the taxpayers of Texas, the legislature had to go back and spend more time and effort just to bitch-slap Rosy so that he was forced to comply with the new law.

Apparently, Rosy also doesn’t think that the rules and regulations involving romantic endeavors in the workplace apply to him. Ya see… Rosy, who happens to be married, has the hots for his executive secretary, Kerry Stevens. And Rosy likes using County email resources to profess his love to her. Of course, Rosy didn’t want the emails released (he’s involved in an election campaign). The 130 e-mails that were briefly released paint a picture of a district attorney’s office that’s deliberate and hard-working, but sometimes coy and secretive. Not to mention, horny.

Dear Chuck… Please resign. And get divorced. And take up an occupation that doesn’t involve people’s trust. Like chicken sexing.
