FOUND THIS ON THE NEWSROOM FLOOR and couldn't wait to share with you. The parent of a high school football player in Texas has filed a complaint with another schools principal. Why???? The parent has a son on the Western Hills team, and they lost a game against Aledo High School last Friday 91-0. So the parent filed a bullying complaint (I'm not kidding). Reports indicate Aledo High did everything they could to keep the score down (continous clock, no passing, 3rd stringers throughout the second half, etc.). I just hope nobody finds out which players parent filed the complaint. That would be hard to live down in football crazy Texas. By the way, Aledo is 7-0 and a state power while Western Hills is 0-7 and well, I guess not so much. Both schools are in the Fort Worth area. We'll talk about this tomorrow morning at 9am.
I ALWAYS GET NERVOUS WHEN SOMEONE cites an anonymous source. If you're going to say something, stand by it! A new book by reporter Peter Baker quotes an "anonymous source" from the George W Bush administration. The book 'Days of Fire: Bush and Cheney in the White House' quotes this anonymous source as saying "The only reason we went to Iraq is we were looking for somebody's ass to kick. Afghanistan was too easy." Ouch!
A TRAGIC STORY FROM NORTH CAROLINA. A 2 year old girl found a gun while at home with her grandmother and her aunt. You can probably figure out the rest. BANG! She's dead. I've got a few questions about this. Can a 2 year old really pull a trigger on a handgun? And is this just a tragedy or should someone be held responsible for this. We'll talk in the morning on 640 WHLO.
IF YOU WONDER ABOUT BEGGERS NIGHT this year, we have a complete list of dates and times elsewhere on this website. BOO! Talk to you tomorrow on 640 WHLO. JIM
