Daily Grind :: Texas Mugshots, Drunken Fireworks & Gladiator Groomsmen

Due to some technical difficulties, today's Daily Grind took a little longer than usual to get out.  I figure the coffee is probably pretty cold by now but I'm as reliable as the dog wagging its tail as you come through the door...even if you've only been gone for 2 minutes.  We do not take the word daily lightly around here.  Enjoy.

  • Two life lessons here: 1) Do not smile in your mugshot photo in Texas. 2) Do not choke prisoner as mug shot is being taken.

  • Add this one to the reading list. Author Iain Reid's new novel "I'm Thinking of Ending Things" sounds like chilly fun and is available today.
