Here’s the Thursday open line and the day’s video highlights reel.

Below is a photo provided to Forbidden Hillcrest Steve O’Connell. It seems a so-called Google car with camera panning for images for the website’s street view mapping came to grief at Cantrell and Tyler.

* DONALD TRUMP IS A DOPE: Would you really want Donald Trump’s endorsement? Unfortunately for Tom Cotton, he got it. Unfortunately for the facts, Trump claimed Tom Cotton was a Rhodes Scholar. He wasn’t. Move along. Nothing to see here but weird hair.
