Okay cool cool it concord. Grape is is very much an east coast great You know the complexities different. From like a west coast wine these coastline is kind of like the complexities between west coast rappers and east coast rappers in i think we have. We have a stronger out here. West coast or more delicate grapes. But you know again you you come out and you say you just try it and people that try. Certain wines are going to stick to those winds pretty much like you're not gonna be. There is a little bit different.

How Psychedelic Drugs Are Making A Comeback To Treat Depression
"Depression. It can be a difficult mental illness to pin down. It can feel different for everyone and even those who struggle with it can have trouble identifying bought. It is a mostly came to understood that. I had depression through talking with my friends for the longest time. I kind of system that everyone felt this way. Like weird just like general malays for this twenty nine year old. Depression surfaced about six years ago and began as a feeling of being disconnected with the world. I didn't want to eat because they didn't feel like i deserve to eat. I don't know. I didn't hang out with friends because i didn't feel like i deserve to see my friends. I didn't feel like i should be punishing them by talking to them seeing them. This person uses they them pronouns. They're a maryland resident and work as a software tester. They sought help for their depression. Trying numerous types of treatments may visited a bunch of different mental health professionals and tried different types of arby's In different types of medication but it always kinda felt like things were getting worse and worse and a current really find someone who has really helped me understand what was going on like. I still didn't even believe that. I had depression. All the while the depression advanced it felt like being alive and lake wanting to die rolling constantly fighting over like the resources in my mind then. Their health insurance lapsed in two thousand eighteen making the situation worse a surprise solution appeared while they were scrolling on social media and a posting from johns hopkins university researchers and then one day i was kind of like clicking through facebook and i actually found this ad four like this little simon. Study silla simon. That's the psychedelic drug found in magic mushrooms. And i thought it was fake remarks. I didn't expect there to be you know like a a legitimate study showing up on like facebook ad but they had no insurance basically they were out of options so they called wanted to have hope again from the wall street journal. This is the future of everything. I'm janet babbling today on the podcast. How the hallucinogenic compounds silla zyban once associated with nine hundred sixty s drug culture is making a comeback and giving people suffering from depression and other mental illnesses. Hope for this twenty nine year old study participant. Depression was not something that happened in their family. My family's from the caribbean and lived in america probably for about lake in years. We came here in ninety nine. It's kind of interesting because where from like a place that doesn't really view mental health. The that like america's mental health. It took me a while to realize that. I was having mental health problems that i was kind of experiencing depression. Depression affects a staggering number of people hundreds of millions worldwide according to a study published in the peer reviewed journal the lancet in two thousand eighteen. The pandemic didn't make things any easier. Last june about a third of people who responded to web based surveys said they suffered from symptoms of depression or anxiety disorder. Those results were published by the centers for disease control and prevention the protocol for treating these conditions hasn't changed much in the past few years. What we've been using is typically one of two things either a medication that people take every day or we have psychotherapy dr. Alan davis is clinical psychologist and an assistant professor at the ohio state university. He's also an adjunct assistant. Professor at johns hopkins university. A lot of people will improve with either medication or therapy or both to basically have both have a better chance but it doesn't work for everyone. Some studies report between ten and thirty. Five percent of patients suffer from treatment resistant. Depression and davis is that similar to what he's found in his own practice working with veterans suffering from substance abuse trauma and other mental health issues. So he began looking for alternative treatments present and welcome to psychedelic science. Two thousand and thirteen in twenty thirteen davis attended a science conference and came across a study exploring the use of silla. Sivan a chemical compound found in specific varieties of mushrooms to treat cancer patients with mental health conditions. The compounds documented facts include feelings of heightened awareness ecstasy visions and changes in the perception of reality for researchers say one of the most useful qualities is its ability to dissolve the ego to allow a user to observe oneself from the outside in the study of cancer patients. The drug was able to alleviate some of the anxiety and depression that can be associated with having a life threatening illness. I was just inspired by that word. I thought gosh this really could have a strong impact in the areas that i'm working with veterans and with others davis became part of a team of researchers at johns hopkins university that put together a randomized clinical trial. Twenty four participants. They were administered. Silla sivan with talk therapy to treat their depression. Enrollment for the trial took place in two thousand seventeen and twenty nineteen and the results were analyzed in two thousand twenty. Most of them had had chronic depression meaning decades of experiencing depression though not some had had it for shorter amount of time but this study was a weightless control trials so some people came in and started treatment right away. Others had to wait eight weeks before starting treatment so we had a comparison group. The study subjects received an extensive intake examined questionnaire to confirm. They were suffering from symptoms of depression. Participants were screened for schizophrenia. And drug use as these conditions can interfere with suicide and treatment. The big worry many people have about psychedelics is what's often referred to as a bad trip. Mary negative hallucinations. That can be scary and this is kind of trip that can go bad. Martissant received hefty doses of these drugs. The doses are based on weight and they vary slightly but patients receive around twenty milligrams in the first session a bit more in the second session to minimize the risk of a negative experience. Davis says researchers focused on controlling. What's called and setting. They work ahead of time to ensure the volunteers current mood and surroundings while taking the drugs. Remain as calm and comfortable as possible and so we spend about eight to ten hours with people before they ever get the drug talking about what the effects are talking about. What may or may not happen when they have this experience and that's why we have to train professionals there with them not only to prepare them for that but to help them through the experience when it happens because a lot of people have anxiety coming into the session. The person we spoke to the twenty nine year old participated in davis study group in august of two thousand eighteen. They had no prior experience with psychedelic drugs and didn't know watch expect basically went in kind of blindly. I don't have any other options. So that's kind of my thought process at the time was just basically kind of sticking anything to the wall and hoping it would work after fasting the previous night the treatment can cause nausea. They were placed in a small tranquil room fitted with a comfy couch. The whole room was a really really cool in very comforting because like they had like these statues like imagery in their end like. I think one of the muslim dowa tibetan model. I wanna say this and like there was like this nice lamp. It's off this really. Soft light psychedelic assisted. Therapy participants are encouraged to bring in objects from home to make them feel more comfortable. Some bring in ten bears pictures of family. The twenty nine year old brought a lightness of an ancient sumerian goddess. Soon nana once they were settled in the room. They were given two pills in a wooden cop the therapists top that the sivan would take fifteen to thirty minutes to start working. In the interim they were told to put on ice shades and headphones. That would play a selection of music they choose from classical tibetan chanting african drumming and modern music too. Once the drug fact the participants says the first session became a kaleidoscope of mental images and sensations. I remember being in lake. Felt like mount olympus the fall of the gods like oval the clouds and suffering them. And then one of my god's up to me and she gave me a key fell through the clouds. And i felt all the way down through the earth and i ended up in hell which is really strange because they don't remember being scared even though i was in hell and i remember asking like hey you know why am i hair And it was like haiti's leading me through hell kind of just like showing me around for life this very cold and desolate last. He was like of course. This is where you would come like. This is where you've made your home. The self revelations continued throughout this long session and turned intensely personal. I remember like hearing like the beats. Come on and i felt myself in like this place like all of my ancestors were and i was really close to my grandfather when i was a kid. And he died. Probably around when i was like four and i saw him kind of materialize And he walked towards the youth like these. She'll bananas which is what he's doing her then he handed one to me and i always kind of was afraid that if he was alive he would be disappointed in me and i remember asking him you know. When am i supposed to do like if my family like my parents and lake my siblings can accept me and he said that he'll always be there for me and my ancestors will always be there for me and i like that scene just like it. Metsu in mental to me after about seven hours than drugs started to wear off when it was over. You know you're still kind of like feeling it but just not as intensely so just basically like this really happy kind of floaty failing and we couldn't drive so like i had to have a sister pick me up. They ended the experience hungry and exhausted as for the depression not much appeared to have changed then. They tried the silla sivan trip once more this time with the stronger dose and after that these say they experienced to palpable shift. It felt like i was back into the world again like i was in reality. A lot of people said that not only was there. Depression differently felt like they had come out of dark hole that they've been in for years but a lot of people regardless of whether they're depression was gone or or reduced said that there was something really meaningful different about how they view their life initial results for the study reviewing outcomes from up to a month after the sessions were completed found that silla sivan plus therapy was more than four times more effective than other treatments. Such as medication alone at one week. Fifty eight percent of the sample were in complete remission from depression that actually lasted up to four weeks. After fifty four percent of people were in complete remission and were now studying those same people up to twelve months after to see how long that remission lasted the rest of the participants in the study. Were not in remission they were still experiencing clinically significant depressive symptoms researchers have yet to publish the results of longer term outcomes for all the participants their condition up to a year after treatment and this was a small study. Just twenty four people. Some scientists remain skeptical of this kind of treatment not just of silla simon. But of the validity of the data an outcomes for all studies involving psychoactive substances

"I i. I think the tone was definitely drinking contest. Yeah the the ship was definitely the make or break moment for a lot of readers right Interesting because that means like for the first thirteen chapters are all generally like they're about setting up the aim anthony about setting up this other world literally other world and then it's about finding the swords and then when we get to the challenges it starts off being like. Oh yeah it's the surface we expected and then the tone just like the bottom falls out and it's like oh goofy games and then it starts to feel like those classic clermont. Alan davis excalibur issues which excalibur a new comedy. But that's not that's that framing like wasn't where the event was up until that point right so it's like chapters whatever it is through so many people were like what's and what's going on and i applaud that ambition but i definitely get where people were like. Yeah like it just lost me. Th the funniest thing to me is. This was a twenty two chapter event and before the pandemic sort of sent the comics world in the world at large. Into this this weird state of affairs it was gonna be. I think fifteen chapters. I think this one's been chapters. It's like perfect. Like fifteen chapter could have been caught and they run a little ran a little long. That was that was my main thing. And i get if you dug it the whole ride like like that's fun. I appreciate that. They took these kind of risks with it. But i do think the core story if you look at what they did in creation stasis and destruction is really good like it's a really big world building stuff again like look what they delivered you know apocalypse backstory and characterization fantastic apocalypse right and this is an apocalypse story. You know. I think more than anything like the apocalypse event which is cool the totally. Reinvented in a way. That makes me care about that.

"And several years ago, researchers at Johns Hopkins University found it could ease depression and anxiety in patients who had life threatening cancer, which led us to consider whether or not this treatment might be effective for people in the General Depression community. That's Alan Davis, a researcher at both Johns Hopkins and the Ohio State University. Davis was part of a team that studied about two dozen people diagnosed with major depressive disorder, he says they took the drug in a relaxed setting. They have blindfold on. They have headphones on listening to music, and we really encourage them to go inward and to kind of experience. Whatever is going to come up with the psilocybin. The treatment included two doses of the drug as well as about 11 hours of psychotherapy. Half the participants began treatment immediately. The rest were put on a wait list so they could be used as a comparison group. Davis says the treatment seemed to work. There was a significant reduction and depression in the immediate treatment group compared to those in the wait list, and the effect of that treatment was more than four times greater than the effect of typical antidepressant medications. Davis says. Patients also responded much faster than they do with typical antidepressants. The effect happened within one day after the first session. And sustained that that reduced level through the second little Simon session all the way up to the one month follow up. The study appears in the journal JAMA Psychiatry. It's paired with an editorial by Dr Charles Reynolds of the University of Pittsburgh. Reynolds says the new research is notable for its scientific rigor It offers, I think a good deal of promise as a feasible approach to treating particularly chronic forms of depression. Even so, Reynolds says the results still might be skewed because patients were told they were going to get the drug some of the rapid improvement that we saw. Could have been related to expectancy effects on the part of the participants in the clinical trial. The study comes about 18 months after the FDA approved ketamine for depression. Reynolds says the emergence of drugs like ketamine and Silla Seidman may signal a new era in treatment. Certainly, that's my hope. It's just that we need a good deal. More research that addresses safety and efficacy and the type of patient who's likely to benefit. Reynolds says The research should be funded by places like the National Institutes of Health. The study had rely in part on a Crowdsourced funding campaign. John Hamilton NPR NEWS.

Up a toll World pool factory in Where is that is that Sylvania is where that says, I know it's it up in northwest Ohio, but anyway, he was here in Ohio. And he was touting, among other things, his administration's desire. To bring Mohr drugs and drug manufacturing essential drugs back to the United States that we You are far too big, a buyer of drugs and drug materials from foreign countries, particularly China and India. And of course, this has been highlighted by what we've been going through with the virus from China since since early March late February. And it plays into Donald Trump's overall and overarching believe that we should buy American. He wants to restore manufacturing jobs to this country. They had gone overseas, and they had gone into atrophy in this country for decades before he got into office. It wasn't just Barack Obama. It was Bush 43. It was Clinton. It was Bush, 41. It actually goes all the way back to the end of the Reagan administration. Companies seeking profits far too often were allowed to do business. In other countries and then face no economic difficulties in re bringing those products made in foreign countries back to the U. S. That's why there are now things known as Tariffs made in the USA by in the Yusa. Therefore, if the Yusa needs something, there will be no shortage in the Yusa, including Essential drugs, including the minerals that go in to make essential drugs now. A lot of the manufacturers, some 72% of them that supply. Pharmaceutical ingredients to the United States are located. Overseas. 13% of them are located in China. Can Donald Trump? And whatever power he may have can any power any president into power? He may have force companies to come back to the United States and make Job. Bring jobs make things bring services back to the United States in and of himself. It's an interesting study in economics, someone who has been studying economics. All of his life is Allen Davis. He's an advocate for made in America jobs. His company is partnering with the National Association of Manufacturers and a push to bring back these jobs from China and create jobs in the United States. He's kind enough to spend some time with this year on 700 WLW in Alan Davis, How are you on this glorious Friday? I'm doing fantastic. And how are you this morning? I'm doing well. I feel better about what I saw from the president here in Ohio yesterday, but in and of himself, Donald Trump can't solve the manufacturing dilemma. That this country has placed itself and over the last 40 years, Kenny No, You're absolutely right. It takes it takes all of us. Ah, couple things we've been trying to help. The general populace as well as the government understand is that this is a problem that has taken a long time for us to get into, and it may take a little while for us to get out of that it takes all of us collectively working together in order to solve it. Way we've reached the point now where I think most Americans can see the dire consequences of over dependence upon foreign production. And so at this point in time, we really do call on individuals to buy made in the USA products we call on manufacturers. To source local first Andi call government to set the policies that we need in order to make that happen. But it's retro. It's a tricky It's a tricky road to navigate because the initial reason at least If you believe history, and you believe what was written about the overriding reason, the initial reason why a lot of these companies sought to put plants in places like Mexico and in China..

There was a guy named Richard Alan Davis back in 1993. And he killed the 12 year old girl named Polly Class. He was let out early. There was a bunch of left wing liberal policies in the 19 eighties. But let bad guys out early and he killed this girl pulled her right out of her bedroom. And that started the three strikes movement in California because people were so horrified and it has to happen to a little girl and some little girl is going to get raped and killed. By one of these Richard Alan Davis types of one of these Abraham types, and then everyone is going to go crazy and there's going to be a big backlash. You'll see it happens. When you're around long enough, you can follow the cycles and and the pendulum going back and forth. They have now set up somebody's daughter. Somebody's daughter is going to be the victim of these prisoners being released and you just have to hope it isn't yours.

"For centuries the western world read the Bible as a call to dominate the earth and subdue it for the fiftieth anniversary of Earth Day we re experience this sacred text as a call to re frame the human relationship to the natural world the land estilo Jim Allen Davis says on which our life depends with the poetry of genesis alongside the poetry of Wendell berry we remember the lost art of being creatures when despair for the world grows in me and I wake in the night at the least sound in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be I go in line down where the wood Drake rests in his beauty on the water and the great heron fee I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with for so if I come into the presence of still water and I feel above me the day blind stars waiting with their light for a time I rest in the grace of the world and am free I'm Krista Tippett and this is on being Alan Davis is a professor at the Duke University Divinity School I first met her in the early nineteen nineties when she was at Yale Divinity School and my teacher of the Hebrew Bible the Old Testament over two semesters she captivated our imaginations excavating nuance in the biblical writings and in the years that followed she became actively involved with an emerging network I feel logically and scientifically informed initiatives on ecology she eventually brought all of that together in her scholarship with the farmer and poet Wendell berry as one of her friends and collaborators he is famously private but agreed to read poetry to us from his home in Kentucky to accompany this conversation I had with Ellen which happened in two thousand ten but this episode includes never before released conversation and poetry as an offering to our world in crisis slightly daunted interviewing my teacher like this and I'm going to have a different role with I think we can get that right okay and you know I as I was thinking about the questions I might want to ask you some of which I always ask people I realize that even though you and I have had conversations around these things I've never quite a skip these questions I don't I don't know all the answers so so so once I always start with people you know whatever we're talking about is not what was there a religious background to your childhood and actually I'm not sure that I know the answer to that question yes I am a cradle Episcopalian okay I've there's never been a time in my life when I haven't gone to church but I would say that too which means quite a different thing to me or religion means quite a different thing to me then I think it did to my parents or anyone almost anyone else in my family I did not grow up in a family that would have defined itself as particularly religious although we would church colors when and how did you start heading towards a career in the local scholarship and theology how did that happen consciously I was an exceedingly late bloomers I was a classics major at college and was interested in the ancient world it never occurred to me to focus on religion or bios I was going to a State University the university of California we didn't even have a department of religion and women were not ordained and at that time in the past couple church so it never occurred to me that I would have a profession in religion I'm also I'm quite introverted and it would not have occurred to me that I would enjoy work as public as teaching when I was a young person I wanted to be a librarian okay and is it right that you landed in Berkeley at the university of California in nineteen sixty eight is that right sixty seven sixty seven and then you don't consider yourself to be the perfect specimen of where our cultural or cultural imagination goes about who is in Berkeley in nineteen sixty seven no other probably nobody nobody emerged unscathed but but I actually went to Jerusalem in nineteen sixty nine largely because Berkeley was in I want to be someplace that was saying yeah into Islam by comparison look calm to me that's really interesting isn't it from this vantage point yeah and you know with this focus and this team of of the land I also wonder if how did being in California doing a lot of growing up there what kind of imagination did you pick up from that place and from that part of your life about land land means well first of all I grew up in one of the most beautiful places in the world and so there was never a time when I was not conscious of being in an exceptionally beautiful place and maybe the best thing I can say about my childhood is that my friends and I did not take that for granted and we were outside every day we would often just walk around the island and tell each other about the stories we were reading and there was still a lot of wildness in the Bailey and my childhood and the second thing I would say is that I watched the place I loved most change over the early decades of my life and change in ways that I think we now all recognize it probably not sustainable and while I didn't have that phrase to apply to it as a young person I realized it was changing in ways that would probably not healthy what do you think of when you say that this change will live eight I I think about highways going through places where they used to be fun when I grew up there was a lady raising goats and I would pass it every day on my way to school well you know that that seems like another century now it is yes and then what really strikes me is also that this theme that affect you have become so so passionate about and so wise about in any steep yourself in the in the text and traditions around out of the land but that you've started the as I understand it thinking about this maybe fifteen twenty years ago that Danny you and it wasn't because you set out to be an environmentalist you were you were very much a scholar and yet as you say you you stumbled across this you you came upon it in the course of nor a your normal professional activity of reading and interpreting he prescriptions suck can you kind of tell me that story I mean can you show a six sure you may even have been in the class but I was lecturing my way all the way through the Hebrew Bible the Old Testament for the first time and I think at the end of the first semester one of my doctoral student teaching assistants said when we were making up the final exam well you need to ask a question about land and I said why and he said because you talk about it all the time and I was not conscious of doing that I was simply a way of of talking my way through each book of the Bible I would now say it's obvious that I would be talking about land all the time because you can't go more than a few chapters in the Old Testament Hebrew Bible without seeing some reference to land water it's hell it's lack of help the absence of fertile soil and water and but at the time that came as a surprise to me and so I became more conscious of what I was doing and at the same time I had made a trip back to California and to oppose of California not so far from where I'd grown up but fun enough that I hadn't been there in a number of years and again I was shocked at the changes that have taken place within my memory and I began to recognize that there was a huge gap between the kind of exquisite attention that the biblical writers of giving to the fragile land on which they live and the kind of obliviousness that characterizes our culture or did at that time in respect to a use of land and California and Israel a very comparable landscapes they both both fragile both semi Allah it said I found times of collapsing in a certain sense but there was an odious comparison between that Calif land which is at least held up as an ideal in the Bible and the disregard of it that I was seeing in my own place and then when you as you took that realization back into your scholarship did you even start seeing things that you hadn't hadn't seen before yes and that continues now as I stated reading tax well first I thought that I was going to have to be very careful to find tax that would speak to the care of land and that turned out not to be true at all that I could open up almost anywhere in the bottom line is that thank but now I continue to find that even reading chapters passages but I've written on before that I've lectured on countless times when I read them from the perspective of what they have to say about the land on which our life depends and it's helped things pop out at me that I had simply overlooked before or things make sense to me that I had never tried to make sense of and this is on being today the lost art being creatures with theologian Ellen Davis and the poetry of Wendell berry the first chapter of genesis is as Ellen Davis puts it a magisterial you toned liturgical poem in six days at the beginning of god's creating this keeper has it god it makes night and day firmament and water seating plants sun and stars fish and fowl crawling creatures of the dry land and finally human beings and in a verse that colonizers and missionaries of the Christian west took on with the vicar god blesses the man and woman created in god's image and here's how the King James version translated god's command to them be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the air and over every living thing that moves on the earth so you know what I thought would be interesting for us to do is just pick up genesis I had that to knock the Jewish publication society Bible in front of me and I have effort fox's the five books of Moses which is a translation and it's very close to the Hebrew for yes and not necessarily as linear doesn't necessarily read in a smooth the way in English but as you you've said it it makes the Hebrew more transparent including rhythms and illusions and if so with agrarian eyes you know what what do you see when you when you open genesis one well the first thing that stands out is that the rhythm of the passage changes when we get to the creation of the dry land on the fifth day that up until that point actually I think the dry land is created a little bit sooner than the fifty day but it begins to be furnished for habitation on the fifth day and up until that point a genesis one is really very terse let there be light and there was light let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters and it was so but then when the dry land it begins to be furnished for habitation suddenly there is blessing enters the world and it's so the the creatures a blast and of course we know human beings a blast on the sixth day but we often overlook the fact that the creatures of sky and sea receive exactly the same blessing through the food be fruitful and multiply and so we are living amongst creatures who are blessed before we even come into existence I think that's an important thing to recognize some of so that's something yeah let's just point out that I think the passage if people know something from this it is this this blessing that also seems to contain not just permission but a commandment to the to the words the translation is different to have dominion to Knox says to master it a rule the fish of the sea so you're saying that that's tempered first of all by the context but but you know how do you step back from that and what do you see it is happening there that is not clear in the way we have translated news this text okay the world is a strong word and I ran into it exercise skilled mastery amongst the creatures because I think the notion of skilled mastery suggest something like a craft and art of being human without taking away the fact that humans do in from the perspective of almost all the biblical writers not every single one but almost all humans occupy a very special place of power and privilege and responsibility in the will often but the condition for our exercise of skilled mastery is set by the prior blessing of the creatures of the sea and sky that they are to be fruitful and multiply so whatever it means for us to exercise skilled mastery it cannot undo that prior blessing mmhm I think it's pretty convicting for us in the sixth grade H. of species extinction mmhm mmhm the other thing I would point out is that for this tremendous emphasis on the fruitfulness of the night let the earth grass for the grass the Hebrew says let seed bearing plants fruit trees of every kind on earth that bear fruit with the seed in it and and it goes on for another voice continual emphasis on how the earth is a self perpetuating system of fertility Evan fruitfulness to provide for all and then there is the creation of the earth creatures Inc including human kind and then again at the very end of the chapter god says to the humans right after they have been given the charge to exercise skilled mastery god says look I give you every seed bearing plant that's upon all the earth and every tree that has seed bearing fruit that shall be yours for food and to all the animals and took the bullets and to the things that creep on the earth so the food is being provided for all it seems to me that this is the first and maybe the best clue that we have of what it means for humans to exercise skilled mastery amongst the creatures that we are the one creature that is conscious that everybody has to eat when you even write about eating as a practical theology so we get it we think this is here's a whole new area that you know that that genesis talks to us about eating as part of being human and part as part of being a creature I'm eating is something.

We're we're going next go to Steven in. He Steven welcome. You're next on nightside. Your take on all of this tonight. Stephen. Hi, good evening. Thank you for taking my call. Two things I guess sort of in the discussion about the whole topic on. Vigil being a coward. I definitely agree that he's a coward. And I think some other people have kind of brought her late tonight is even though he's a coward. When I heard this news. This wasn't the first word that came to mind, you know, evil. Hateful, psychotic, those things came to mind. I think maybe. That's another angle that we can take this on. And I think maybe I would agree with you. Stephen, let me just tell you. I would agree with you on them on all of that. Okay. Yeah. Psychotic now again, I think I'm not a psychologist. So I think that this guy planned this thing out and all of that. So I I don't want to give him even the excuse of saying that he's crazy. But I do think who likes to be called the coward. Is there anyone in your life? Did you know who would take on that cloak to be called a coward and say, yeah, I'd like to be called a coward? No one wants to be called a coward. Right. No. No. I agree. And would you would you agree with me again as we've talked about tonight that for this guy to walk into that mosque with a high powered weapon and just to kill people slotted them. It's an active coward. He how is he was in. No danger. No is among other things. I think there's just so many different angles. And you know, just kind of happened, you know, more people start to kind of think about this and more information comes out they're to. Pick it apart. However people wanting to do that. But the thing, you know, with that last previous caller who, you know, kind of contentious about cowardice verse, you know, this being of an issue white supremacy. You mentioned how you know people want. By the way, they're both in my opinion. Okay. Justified clarification, these are self proclaimed white supremacists. And he's a coward. Go ahead. I didn't mean towards right now. And I agree. And I think that you know, the thing that would. This is going to be come even more and more politicised, despite the fact that there's a tragedy, and they're going to start linking there too. Agendas agendas that people like to kind of, you know, identify with certain politicians certain, you know, ideologies that we can't necessarily connect to. And I think that. What we need to focus on is sort of that humanity that's happening around this. Despite the fact that, you know, this is a horrible horrible tragedy. People are coming together and people are recognizing that, you know, a group of human. They had a horrible tragedy happened we. Yeah, we we do. Right. And that's all good. That's all going, Stephen. We're we're even this is this didn't even have it in our country that happened half a world away. Our country is point out our hearts and were pointed a resources, then we'll probably send resources out to do this. And I think we need to focus on is being able to come together during all of this. Instead of you know. Try to divide ourselves and try to you know, take on certain identities. Okay. Stephen, I'm with you. Totally. I agree with everything that you've said, we always come together after these. But then we get all the different agendas at work, and I'm simply trying to stigmatize this guy tonight and stigmatize people like him from which ever and of the political extremes. They come from cowards. That's all I'm saying. Can I agree? I totally agree. Thanks, even appreciate your call. By the way, tomorrow, if you happen to be in Dorchester in the morning there is the the the annual Mary and bread food pantry breakfast at St. Margaret's church, which is now the the church of blessed Mother Teresa put on by the Dorchester neighborhood.

Mary you're next on nightside. Thanks for calling in Mary. How are you tonight? Oh, dan. I'm okay. How you doing? I have a legal question. It's my understanding that this monster and coward was wearing a helmet camera. Yes. While he was mowing down these fifty people. He was wearing wearing a gopro camera. Yep. Gosh. Okay. So how is his defense attorney going to plead not guilty? When this idiot filmed his entire crime. The legal question. It'd be a mere formality. I don't I'm not familiar with the new New Zealand criminal code or or how they conduct themselves. But if it's anything like ours, the burden of proof is upon the the state in this case, obviously New Zealand, he can plead whatever he wants. He won't be successful. I mean, his attorney might at some point trying to come up with an insanity defense. But I don't think that's gonna work either. This guys did it. He he he he's he's doomed. He's doomed. The sad thing is that the the tax payers in New Zealand will be supporting him for the rest of the lot his life is natural life because he the the death penalty was outlawed in New Zealand in one thousand nine hundred nine. Okay. Yeah. But no, I mean, he's going to be convicted just like there was the guy over Norway. They all get convicted. And if then in addition, they they keep him protected while in custody, which we tend to do the other inmates won't get at him. I mean, why is that well because they feel there's an obligation, and they don't want to have a civil lawsuit from his from his if somehow let's say they put him in to a prison which had a. A high of Muslim population. I don't think it lasts long. Geoghegan was killed here, as you know, the convicted pedophile those guys don't do well in prison, particularly when they're in the general population, but plead not guilty. And then eventually they'll have some sort of a trial. He'll probably insist on a trial, so he can get more publicity. But I'd give him a very quick trial. And I said it's a very quickly to and. If we're me. But but I'm not in new. I'm not in New Zealand Mary. But that's he can they have a right to say. Hey, I'm not guilty. He probably doesn't think he's guilty. He thinks he's a he's a great hero cowboy thanks Mary. All right. Thanks, dan. Happy Saint Patrick's Day have a great night. I haven't wished to many people happy Saint Patrick's Day is not very much in the mood. But let's keep it rolling. Ed. Ed, you're next on nightside. Hey, thank you for calling in go right ahead. Yes. So actually, very questions related to Mary's thing was about as, you know, California the executive order where they just put a pause on capital punishment. Yes, they did. So I understand that in general about people getting a fair trial and disproportionate people. I think minorities getting convicted, etc. But I wondered if you thought in a situation where it was you know, like ninety nine point nine percent certain would capitol police would be allowed for somebody. Who is like no doubt that this is the guy. Would go with your audience or you or whatever to say. Yeah. I need social capital punishments acceptable. Oh, I couldn't agree with you more. And I think capital punishment should always be available, and I'll give you the simple formula. And that is if you are proven beyond a scintilla of doubt, you know, normally the level of conviction is beyond a reasonable doubt doubt. But it's not reasonable. But if it's beyond a scintilla of doubt, which means there's no doubt. Okay. This just no doubt in their aggravating circumstances out in California. The folks who have now the burden of of being on death row death row has been essentially eliminated in California by governor Newsom, even though people in California voted to keep the death penalty, Richard Alan Davis. He kidnapped twelve year old Polly Klaas from her bedroom at knife point during a slumber party in October of ninety three later that night. Sheriffs unaware the Davis was a parole violator or the police have reported the kidnapping. They let him go after finding his car. Stuck in a ditch and a private road near the family home in a confession to police. Davis said he untied paulie and put her on an embankment a short distance away from that before the deputies arrived and freed his car after they let him go. He concludes he had to kill the girl to avoid being sent back to prison and strangled her with a with a knotted cloth. I mean, you get another guy here killed his wife two daughters. Three other relatives. Supervisor at a sonoma's county winery during a three hour rampage in nineteen eighty nine. Hey. These are these are the scumbags that that are that are gonna not never face the death ball. They won't face the death penalty for awhile. And here's his a good one too. By the way, just little conversation. Started Rodney Alcala he appeared in the dating show in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight in the midst of his killing spree. He presented himself as a photographer. He was actually approaching young women on the pretense of asking them tomato, professionally lured them to their debts. When he was arrested in nineteen seventy nine police suspected he'd killed eight women. Although in all likelihood, the number is much higher as for the daily show. I'll Kyle actually one, but the female contested reportedly turned down a life a date in real life after getting a bad feeling about him. Some of the folks on death row in California. I see. Just curious for civically on these mass killing one in Las Vegas, or whatever. Just seems like you've taken so many lives that and I know that you might say, well, if we add the death penalty, you're only making the person Margaret like Tim McVeigh, but I'm not so sure Tim McVeigh another coward. He was no martyr. I mean, you know, they might they might have been some people out there. Who admired him? But he was he killed innocent men, women and children. I've been at that that place that location in Oklahoma City where he drove that truck. Left that truck to explode. Ed, great questions. I think that the death penalty should always be available for the special cases. And this dude is one very special case. I mean, no question about his his his guilt annals and a lot of aggravating circumstances. All right. Thank you. Have a great night. Good night. Okay. We'll take a very quick break. Let me give the final winner tonight. I did already. Okay. Yeah. That was Harriet Paris of water. Congratulations Harriet, we're done with the box offices. We're not done with the calls jump on board. If you like six one seven two five four ten thirty triple eight nine thousand nine hundred thirty we've got an open line. I can get you in. If you call.

"I knew there was none for me. And she explains that what she did next head to the nearest share outpost to try to turn herself in but her ship was thrown, of course, by a solar flare, and she ended up getting thrown through a Stargate and landing on earth where she met up with and became BFF's with x caliber to whom she completely neglected to mention any of this and to insects caliber, even before was sort of related to the ax books, as we know the X men are very bad. It's just making a freaking phone call now launder says alright surrise now interesting what you did was pretty much justified. But you should have worked within the system instead of murdering this system. Yeah. She killed literally everyone on the ship. And I feel like you can make a lot of arguments about the relative complicity and culpability of like the cooks and the janitors and the large number of people in her relative position. So so yeah, a little bit. If he and low under solution is is that she sentences Cerise to spend the rest of her life working for the laundry to root out. Shitty commanders among the she are despite Kurtz objections Cerise goes along after one last kiss her lips fade in resignation to her fate and night crawler is left alone with his memories and the faintest impression of a kiss. I always really liked that line. See that's the thing. I'm not a big fan of what this story does which is essentially to write out Cerise and to begin the process of writing out a lot of other characters. But there are parts of it that really do work for me. It's a tragedy. Yes. But I do think it's an effective tragedy as long as you don't think you heard about a couple of details, and let's face it. We're x-men fans. We've. Rained ourselves to not think too hard about detail. Sometimes so. We've got a lot of new members here, and we got a lot who are going to be leaving pretty soon. Are we ever gonna see Cerise again? Well, she'll be back for the final issue as actually all of the departing characters will be that's number one twenty five we also will see Cerise in the maximum security event, a couple issues here, and there and most recently in Mr. and MRs acts, which is a whole lot of fun. What about Farren Ferron is going to leave between this issue in next? He'll be back briefly in one twenty four getting revenge on the team. Unfortunately, rather than its writers for forgetting about him. And he's gonna come finally back in the last issue of the series. But that's the last we'll see of him. I actually really do like that bit in one twenty four the idea that a character that the writers forgot about comes back and his mad about being forgotten by the characters. That's that's fun. Valid Micromax despite having just finally officially joined the team. Yeah. He's gonna leave between this issue and the next also he's gonna go try to find a job somewhere. And Kyle on likewise heads out between this and the next issue. He'll be back in the final issue, and maybe a couple tiny marvel appearances after that. But for the most part he's been off the page. So yeah, we have Alan Davis off the book. And then we have Scott lob dole and a couple other people. I'm going to assume given law prominence within the office at this point. He was the one who made these decisions just taking out everything that made x caliber. The most recent carnation of caliber that it was we have all the new characters who are going to be gone by number seventy one we have captain Britain written out as well. So who is the book focusing on right now since Megan's in the waterfall, not coincidentally, the mutants dyke crawler Phoenix and shadow cat. And with that you've got questions nurse metal asks on tumbler..
