He's getting all kinds of messages about the governor, lifting the mask a mandate and opening up Texas 100%. I think people were confused as to what that may mean. Wherever you go. You're still gonna have to wear a mask school? Probably your employer unless you've already had the you know the vaccination. Well, here's what Here's what 11 listener to the tide of Don show. Just send us a message or sent me a message that is on my instagram page at Todd Jeffries. And basically, Brandon says, Let's see. Ah, little premature and reckless, Don't you think only about 10% of Texans are vaccinated. We just started distributing the vaccines they were waiting for for a year and we could Wait a little bit longer, until everyone had access to this vaccine before lifting the mandates. He's not telling you to stop wearing a mask. Yeah, well, there are some questions this morning as toe how this affects business because we've heard from a lot of businesses. H E B is going to require their employees on. I'm sure some restaurants well as well but not use a customer. I'm just curious about the bars are movie theaters and Bob Woody from the downtown Austin alliance on several bars in the area and restaurants. Hey, Bob. Awesome. What do you think about the governor's big message yesterday? What a smart guy, Texas Independence Day. What a way to celebrate it. You tell. How do you know about it? Yeah. So what does this mean for you and your business is what does it mean? Well, you know the and let me say this. I think the government the governor is a smart guy. Think he has to look at his His, uh, you know what's going on in his life and the political agenda that he has Theo keep up with, you know, and and what he has to do is constituency and In this red state that we live in these decisions that are made here different than the rest of the state. When you walk outside of the of this county, things change. You know, As far as that goes and what I would say this, he had to establish data. It showed all of this was dropping and that this was a good direction to go. I felt like From the beginning. Wearing a mask was was you know you you could do that, and you should have been allowed to go in business and do whatever you wanted to. And then you could. You could always and still make a decision on whether You want to go somewhere? Not and wear a mask? I You know, I thought about it a little bit on guy Really do feel like people are gonna Continue to win that those that want to But if you don't want that you don't have to and tasty. Data shows that one I think is 1.6% of the causation was bars and restaurants such a minute number and to get so much blame for it. So again tied your question. How is this for the bars? Amazing bars can open. We don't have to identify ourselves or something different than what we are and and people are 100% capacity. He's really saying, Look, he even wear the mask in social. Just do what you want to if you're not comfortable, don't go, and that's what I've said from the beginning for you. Will you change anything going forward? Well, it's still look a bit different than before. Kobe as far as some of your facing your operation in any difference, or you just gonna go back to, uh The way things were and just take personal responsibility for Or any changes that the individual wants My wife, you know, my wife said, get rid of all these tables. What she said. And I agree with that. You know when, when you think about a place to congregate or a place to go and And and be with other folks. And thanks you're You're gonna see people probably act a little different than the main thing to bring back. It is the socializing, the dancing and things like that the you know so much of this falls away as we see. I'll. You take care. My daughter she was taking the kids. Did they care? And and? And there was people that said, All right, I think it's too early two weeks into it. You hear these Woodies? They're taking the kids today Care. Hell, What do we do it? Let's take our kid's day care and you kind of get that way. I mean, I think I think we squeeze early. Look at it. We say I don't want to miss You know, miss out on something? Because I'm I'm acting a certain way. But it is data. It is data driven, and you know again, I think you got smart. Too. He's protected themselves in such good way.

But it wasn't a problem for me, and I was drinking beer. Maybe that's why it wasn't a problem. I'm not quite sure s O people have been reserving these. How do you go about doing that? Because I know I know they actually fill up. You know, to our surprise they have and you know, we just have been really fortunate with. You know the neighborhood.

We're really small restaurant. We couldn't keep up the kitchen couldn't keep up with Interior diners, people eating inside the restaurant and to go. It just was impossible. We had to pick which one we're going to do. Well, we couldn't do them both. Well, so we wait. Stop doing to go. So we haven't done to go in six years. And so when this Pandemic.

Whatever the amount is. If you're going to sit in one of those glues to my knowledge, you have no extra feed. You just have to make to make reservations correct to sit under the tent. No, no extra fee. You know, we weigh just figured, okay, you know, but let's try and just open this up for whomever wants to come and sit. You know, we are doing that to go business and And we're just happy that the customers they're wanting to sit in there and where I appreciate all the restaurants that they want to add extra fees or try and bring in the revenue because it's meted and necessary.

"Wei have been talkin Chicago history and neighborhoods of all things Chicago the past couple of months during the pandemic, I guess we started doing this. I don't know why exactly. It's not really pandemic freely. But we're talking about it one Sunday and said there would be kind of fun to talk about the neighborhoods and You know the kind of the ins and outs of the neighborhood's a little hidden places in the neighborhoods. The history of the neighborhoods, and today is no exception. Jeff Marsala joins us. From the Chicago Architectures Center and Ah, Jeff, you are a dose isn't with the C A. C. Is that correct? Yes. Thanks. Nice to have you on with us here today into bigger and ah, we're going to talk a little Andersonville today. I hear correct, Happy, happy too, and anything else you would like to hear about our virtual Offerings right now and live tours we do and so on. Okay, we'll get to all of those things. So howto Andersonville even get its name. You know, there's a couple different stories. One. Anderson happens to be sort of one of the most common names in Swedish and Anderson those Swedish name, but the name does go back, you know, again different stories. But around 18 55 when that was formed of Small town, you know, outside the city and named after you know, I've forgotten exactly who but a, you know, saying that Swede named Anderson. And then there's a more recent story that maybe this was part of re marketing in the eighties and nineties to sort of give some of the neighborhood. The new A new name, and that people sort of rejuvenated bad at the game to the neighborhood. So there's a couple different temple different ones, but it seems like an older name as well. So it's started off as AH City unto itself, not part of the city of Chicago. You know, I'd have to go back to my notes. But I believe it's started. Yes, you know, as the town and then was very quickly integrated into the city of Chicago, as the city grew and grew, it did this with a lot of cities. Even Lakeview was the town of Lake View on DH, certainly others you know, others within the You know, closer in what are considered, you know, Neighborhoods of the city were their own towns on again. We're talking 18 30 40 50 60. You know, by the seventies eighties nineties, they were certainly are integrated into the city. So Andersonville is one of the neighborhoods that when I drive through it I get depressed, looking at properties that I could have purchased that I that I looked at on got cold feet that were like way back in the day. Same with Lake views and with the DePaul area, saying, you know the name name the ultra exclusive Multimillion dollar area. I had an opportunity to buy property and almost all of these neighborhoods and didn't do it and IBM at $2 a share. That would be my luck that that would be my luck. My point being Kind of renewal that Andersonville has seen of a pretty working class neighborhood that now is much more than that. What are the boundaries? Oh, they're not official. But you know, it's Andersonville, by the way, the sort of a part of, um Edgewater, you know, which is a larger sort of one of the more known community areas, But I would say the boundaries of Andersonville, Um, you know, a little west of Ashland because you know, it's on mostly the strip of restaurants is really Clark. Onda Cross for national and be East. You know, Once you get towards Broadway, you're definitely outside. It's so kind of the neighborhood, you know, halfway between those major thoroughfares to the North, bring more to the south, certainly north of Lawrence, you know, people might think a little bit north of Lawrence would be what would be considered that area. Because once you get further south than urine toward uptown, Yeah, so this time in this neighborhood has really gone through. Ah, a renewal hasn't it in the last 2030 years? You know? Absolutely. I think when it was found that it was, as you said, Ah, working class neighbourhood, you know Swedish immigrants who were coming to work on the railroad on building the canal on other industry here, you know, sort of formed it their hub where they would live and then have small businesses. And what do you think you mentioned? You know a lot of the little neighborhood. Had their own small downtown, and so you know what we do A tour of the sound of the downtown of Anderson Bo. You know, roughly Clark Street from Foster do about bring mark on Bennett bid, You know, just sort of serve on in in that way, but.

"So in either case you can come up with the justification for physical coercion. And the interesting issue is that those who advocated direct violence to the bodies from flogging and through something that was called the water shower, which is sort of like a nineteenth century version of water, waterboarding. Those folks justified that my saying that only physical pain would compel proper behavior others who came up with forms of what we might call mental torture. That didn't involve physical pain per se claim that physical pain was barbaric and that their methods such as I lay shin twenty four seven from any contact with people were more, you main. So in that case, you can see whichever tactic you chose. You could make the argument. It was preferable. How did that contrast with the perspective of of of of physical and punishment? And I guess mental to a certain extent of of slaves. I mean was there even that level of rationale or was it just simply it's my property. I can do what I want. Well, yes, you're you're certainly right about that first off that's the the the idea that slaves are my property was a not only what legal position legal pennant. But it was also a if you will kind of practical, widespread belief that slaves were really beyond the conscience. So to speak of other unions. We didn't have that is we were not slaves had no obligation per se to be concerned about the plight of slaves. And of course, that began that idea began to break down in the in the late eighteenth century as a result of the American revolution and other influences, but it was still a very powerful idea and legal principle through until the time of the civil war. And so I think one of the really enormous challenges wa-. For opponents of slavery abolitionist was to somehow convince Americans that in fact, it was possible to torture. They slave, and it it seems self evident perhaps to us today that that would be the case the enslaved where human beings, but if you start from the premise that. In fact, the enslaved are a baser form of humanity. Whether you believe that on the basis of racist racism, where you believe that on the basis of some idea that somehow Africans are more primitive form of human being all the rationale that white Americans came up with you could then justify the idea that somehow the enslave don't feel pain the way, we do or the enslaved are so primitive that we have to use these methods or they are in slaved. So they have no rights. We are obligated to recognize which is pretty close to what the supreme. Court ruled in the dread Scott decision in eighteen fifty eight. So for the challenge for especially African American abolitionist, I think was to establish a very fundamental level that they were Uman beings who suffered pain and headache, conscience that could be torment the same way why Americans suffered pain. And I mean, I my sense is that the following the war in the story of of Andersonville because what's interesting about this story to me is it seems that prior to this time at least in terms of broad based American psyche. Right that people who are tortured are either not people as you've talked about with the slaves or are a special class of people who have broken the law in or outside of sort of normal. Societal bounds. Something like this. But in the context of Andersonville, it seems like that that desire to. I guess, you know, not have to confront what lives within our societies. Somehow really that muscles started to really flex. Yes. I think you're you're you're right. And I think one of the extraordinary of. Of Cullet erasure of historic or racer or. And Nisha is about American civil war prison camps. And we could argue endlessly as many people have those who are interested in this topic. And there haven't been that many. Actually, we could argue endlessly about whether confederate prisoner of war camps where worse than union prisoner of war camps or whether union officers or union administrators wanted to treat confederate prisoners cruelly or vice versa.

"Not just because they're monkeying around like doesn't songs are awesome. And you know, it's just such good pop tunes. Thank you Dave for bringing up Peter Tork. I would like to say that. I I really was. I was unusually saddened to hear of the passing of Peter Tork. I think he was a good guy. This is who wants to be. I'm sorry. This is Marshall Marshall. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, we all grew up on talk about talk about what you said that. Well, he in particular. I think went through some tough times and was very very generous about speaking about you know, the stuff he had been through. And I think it meant a lot to him to be able to be helpful to others. I. You know, obviously, there are a lot of celebrity deaths and for the most part, I don't feel that moved by them. But I was very saddened when I heard about Peter Tork. There was there was a lot of it. My brother posted a thing. You know, there was some people with argument. He was the most musical monkey. I mean, this was but torque did it did do time in Greenwich Village. Gary he was all over the news when he died, you know, it wasn't just like a small little blurb like seeing the applicant cultural thing he had a dark, you know, he went through a dark period, and he came back. He was a schoolteacher California. So talk about go back in RBQ. Why do you guys why why does that resonate with you? Oh, because the kind of do a little bit of everything and I'm particularly fond of their bass player, Jerry stamping auto. I think he is awesome. And you know, as far as musical dork statement to make but like, you know, it's just a great band and like they're like a bar band. But they're more than that. You know, you can sit there and have like a thousand drinks and have a great time against it there and listen to it like how they can play like a number of different styles. And the first thing I ever heard of them was a captain Lou Alabama which cracks me up. Yeah. Captain, Luke look at the Lou, Don. Oh, yeah. And then I discovered that that was actually, you know, they weren't like the word of the east coast. Then there's more to it. You know, there's like a multi-layered band. Lots of textures going on everybody does a little something. And they're just they're all really good at what they do. And it seem they make it seem really easy, which it's not and some of the songs are so pretty I think Allie Anderson Rodney like riding in my head right in my car. Ran at the drive in, you know, just really really. Really a great band persevered. And they're like a wide scope of styles that they played well, you know, they wrote in different styles. And they're all like even like that song. Try this other one that's not related to that. You might like that as well. There's something for everybody with interview. So we're gonna take a break, I want you come back with another son but plug the gigging Simon's that's a perfect place for your guys. We're looking forward to Simon's on March third which is the Sunday week from tomorrow week from tomorrow Andersonville neighborhood Andersonville right Clark and foster just north of foster and on the west side of the street. You guys are great. We've got another song. So I don't go away after the break, and we'd back more extract o- on WGN. There are times when the writing comes from a place of catharsis. And I think we're lucky enough to be part of the mass therapy group for Dan, he brings in some pretty heavy stuff. Sometimes it's kinda like we're pulling up like the dredges from the shadows. Sometimes and putting them out in the light. I'm very intense. He he really is. And there was also some some mass about just being a a multinational energy conglomerate, and how fun it would be just the all the branding for that. And so those ideas kind of came together at the same time, and we stuck with extract. I'm glad I asked that. So tell us about this last song played we're going to close with a song called civilized, man. And Steve Frankel, by the way. Guitar civilized man is the subject of our first video which you can find at our website, extractor dot org. Also on our YouTube channel if you extract. Oh and civilize man, you'll find our first video. So here we go. Okay. Thank you..

"Happened on this lot the story. I want to tell you stunned me despite everything I already knew about Chicago about how corrupt and ruthless. It can be about how stark the divisions are between black and white rich and poor between the people who hoard power and people who will fight for their fair share. Anytime you see anybody drive vacant lack in a limo. You know, it's no good. There you go a little little cheese about the story. That's coming up after that. But yet is a classic Chicago story. You know? I'm just curious. No, Robin United talked about this. But coming up with the idea for what these podcasts are about. Because one question that I could ask sometimes as well. How'd you come up with the idea for your show? And I was just like, well, I was just frustrated that I didn't hear. Stories about Chicago that we're sort of at the ground level. And I felt that that was missing. And so that it was like frustration. But Laura, I'll ask you. I I mean, it was it was it the frustration of like, hey, there's so many great spots at Andersonville people might not know about that. I don't know if it was so much frustration as like this really kind of like intense desire to tell people stories. You know? There's not there's not so many channels that you can can kind of like in a newsletter like teller whole biography of someone right now. And this is a way for people to kind of share thirty minutes of their life. And and. And get to know them a little bit better and Shannon, just in thirty seconds. What about you? How did you get the idea for the trouble podcast? You know, what like I came up in Chicago, storytelling community, so pretty much found out about storytelling in vain insecure cargo, so I would do the mall, and I would do ought to different shows in the city, and I was always like the this is thirty people in a room or two hundred people in a room. However, big the show is in those are the only people that are here. So I got an apostate cast, and based on that I wanted to Moscow is to be heard by more people, and that's pretty much where it started in. Is now at the trouble, you know, the home stories into trouble. So that's that's how I started just wanting more people to be available to listen to to my stores. Absolutely. Well, I'll tell you what. I mean, lots of people like we said at the beginning of the show are listening to podcasts. So what we'll do is. We'll take a short break. We'll come back. We'll get a look at the news. And then we'll talk more about these great local podcasts that we have here in Chicago and talking about how these podcasters do what they do because it's pretty cool. So stay tuned. This is outside the loop. Mike Steven here with you on seven twenty WGN tonight..

"After two months in the valley that guards marches out of the valley in backup to the road in. Pew thome. So they're in a different location. Now. And in this location, the Chinese finally full fully take over the operation of the camp as opposed to the the Koreans, the North Koreans. So now the seems like the Chinese were a little bit nicer to the prisoners. The Chinese issued each of us, small drinking Cup along with a bowl for our millet or maize no more eating out of a helmet liner. We were also allowed to start a cookhouse for each company and we were occasionally given soybeans. The wells were contaminated from animal and human feces seeping through the ground into the water. Well, so we didn't have fresh water. There were about three thousand men in the camp conditions were about as bad as a human being could possibly live with. So again, I pointed out that the Chinese were a little bit nicer because they gave him like a bowl, but it's a don't get me wrong. This was about as close as you could get to Andersonville in the civil war, which that was a confederate prisoner of war camp for union soldiers. And there was about forty five thousand soldiers that were captured in that were in that program about thirteen thousand of them, died from scurvy and from from diarrhea in dysentry. So you know, it's funny, we think of like diarrhea. First of all, we think is like a joke, and then we think of as like an inconvenience. But when you're in these situations kills you. Back the book we were full of lice, the farmboys told us we were. They were hog lice, growing larger every day on our blood while the lice got fat. We starved the guards brought us two bowls of millet a day, and one bowl of boiled water, which barely kept us alive. And even when we ate dysentry kept us weak and dehydrated. Hunger can do some strange strange things to your mind. I was at the latrine a slit trench, and I noticed that many of the soybeans were passed hole. I thought if I put them out of the feces and wash them off, I could eat them. Then it dawned on me that I must be going crazy or turning into an animal. It would be a few days before I was able to get over the fact that I had let myself sink to a disgusting fought like that. So. Next time you feel in Hungary, you're not feeling hungry, you even know what that feels like. They ended up. Like formed a little group. You just mentioned this this one guy in this group named Vincent Doyle. Doyle became the leader of this little group, an infantryman during World War Two. He had a wife, a son in Fall River, Massachusetts. He received a battlefield commission, France and left the army as Lieutenant. He opened up a frozen food store in Fall River, a little head of its time, not many families had freezers. He went out of business and reenlisted as a Master Sergeant, not an officer. He was an inch too short to be an officer. The army told them. Yeah, that's one of the reasons why left that in. There's like the guys just humble like, oh, I can't get an officer anymore. Even though I got a battlefield commission in World War Two. Oh, that's okay. I'll just I'll just list that's no factor. That's that's like. The humility or if you see that kind of humility anymore. Nomally. I don't make a big deal out of the generational differences, but that's a pretty humble guy right there. Back to the book. Our biggest problem was our physical condition brought on by the March men with open wounds. Many with gangrene didn't survive long. Some were saved from gangrene by maggots eating their dead flesh, which only meant they suffered longer. We've been through that before with the forgotten islander, who they would actually put maggots to get rid of dead flesh to try to save themselves. Some of the soldiers had black feet from frostbite and trench foot. I watched while one man pulled rotted flesh off his toe bones. The soldiers from the second infantry division had it worst. They'd been issued shoe packs, rubber boots with felt liners insoles. Their feet would sweat and they were continuously wet while marching and they would freeze when they stopped marching says they never took off the shoe packs. The soldiers got trench foot..
