"To see me one night. I got off to bandstand. I'm walking out behind the bar and the bartender just giggled. He said, well, you've seen them all, buddy. And he said, you ain't going to guess up there now. I said, hell it don't matter. I said, who the hell is that he said, Paul McCartney and his wife and another couple. And I went up and I said, but I said, is that you, mister McCarthy, said, yeah, it ain't no mistress. My name's Paul. And he said, man, I sat here and listened to your band and he said, what a bond. He didn't say band. He said, Bond. Which of Bond? What a bond? Do you have? Four pieces. I got four pieces too. And we sit there and talk my whole break away. And just as he got ready to leave, he said, I'm going to run up and I'm going to see bootsie called boots Randolph was two doors up. And I'll be back, and I thought, ah, that's all well and good, Ben, I see you. And I ain't never going to see him again in my life. And we would just start at our last set and looked up, here comes the four coach again. The four fur coats. Yeah. And they went, oh, it had to be 30, $40,000 a coat. You never seen such verge. It just wiggled and moved as they walked. Well, of course, you've seen his catalog. The book is called Jim vest and the magic of a steel guitar. Let's imagine and Barry Barnes is the editor Helen vest, your wife of 60 years is the creative consultant. Let's say that your book lands in the hands of a young kid who's trying to make it in Nashville. What's the message in this book for musicians? The message in that book is that somebody from $11 house in Alabama has kept some of the biggest records in the world and the threat can happen for me. It can happen for you. And look at the people that have poured into me as a vessel. The knowledge in their love and friendship and that's just a big old wave that you're riding and you just you learn how to stay up on top of that wave and you learned that you got there because you had help. I listened to your stories, Jim. And I listened to your sense of humor, but also how hard you've worked and how many people you said poured themselves into you and you poured yourself into them. My final question, the name of the show is country music success stories. What does it take to be a success story in country music? My first boss man, peewee. He told me one thing that I've never forgiven. He said, GM started at the top. He said those old boys at the top are just good guys and easy to talk to is the art at the bottom. So the ones at the bottom, they don't want to help you because they're hungry. And another thing I can say to people out there. Yes, learn from all the people that you want to learn from, take in your heart, your mind, what they're doing, feel that. And in what you store that along with another 50 acts or people that you really love too, now what's going to come out of you should be you. It'll be a mixture. It will be flavored and colored different, but all that's really going to be you, that's what you've learned. And that's what you're going to draw from. Be yourself, and when you find yourself all of that is so easy, it's like far enough of love. And you give it the best shot that you got, but you've got a good shot waiting on it. And you don't even know where it's at inside G, but you reach down and you say, I got to have it. And it's usually there if you've done your time. Practice hard, play into always walking with the smile. And say, boy, what are we doing today? Can't wait. Jim vest, I want to say thank you so much for being this week's guest on country, music, success stories. Congratulations on an incredible career that continues to unfold and certainly on your book, Jim vest, and the magic of a steel guitar. Thank you so much. Thank you, honey. Sweet. Thank you. Hi, this is JC Don valerius, your music city mentor. Jim vests story is one for the books, a man whose entire career has been filled with playing music and doing the things that he loves the most. If you're an aspiring musician listening to this podcast, chances are you are hoping for a career just like gyms. Nashville is extra special because in a town like this, you really can make a living playing an instrument. Although no two career paths are the same in country music. Today I want to touch on three different ways that you can make income as a professional musician. Number one being alive musician if you score a gig with a big artist or small, you'll be making money. Musicians get compensated for their performances on the road with an artist and oftentimes are giving a small, per diem, which is an allowance for food or other needs while traveling on tour. Don't get too excited, daily per diem is often small and can range between ten and $30 per day. If you're a member of the musicians union, you'll be paid according to union scale when on the road. So I encourage you to check out the Nashville musicians association online. Some of the larger a list artists oftentimes will put their band on a salary. This means they have to be available at any time any day to jump on the road and perform. Not a bad way to make a living if I do say so. In 2021, the average live musician salary in Nashville ranged between $25,000 to around $55,000. The top 10% made around $85,000 annually. Number two being a studio musician. Another way to make a living is by playing on demos, singles, and albums in the studio. You'll often find that these musicians head into the studio in the morning and will be their recording back to back songs all day long. You might be surprised to know that they rarely get the music before they show up. Singers and songwriters will walk into the studio with their demos, the band leader will chart out the song in real time, and hand the musician a chart with numbers on it. This is called the Nashville number system, and you should absolutely look this up online. It's a essential part of being a studio musician to learn how to read these number charts. The musicians will often be given union scale for the day, and will not receive any further compensation, even if the song becomes a hit. The annual salary for a studio musician in Nashville in 2021 was just around $46,000. Finally, you can teach teaching younger aspiring musicians is very admirable, and it's a great way to make a living in music. Get so good at your instrument that you have knowledge to share. You can either decide to teach privately on your own or through a school. If you want to go the extra mile and make a full career out of it, you can even go get your degree in music education and fill your life up with music in the classroom. Whatever you decide to do, if music is your life, there is always a way to make it your living. More wisdom you can use from music city mentor JC Don valerius.

Gatorade's proven formula, whatever path you take, greatness starts with G and one last note, David Ortiz, Alex Rodriguez for among 13 first timers on the baseball Hall of Fame ballot.

Listen, and follow man in the arena. Now on Apple podcasts Spotify or wherever you get your podcast and stream the docuseries on ESPN+. Dense Rogers covers baseball for ESPN, Jesse, how are you doing? Well, I know how you're doing, because we're doing this interview on Zoom and you're all tan. Looking like you've been hanging out on a beach, and I can imagine you probably do well in a beach vacation. I imagine you'd like to lie in the sun. That is a good assumption. You know me well buster, especially right after a traveling all of October as you know how that can go during the playoffs and then the general managers meetings. You need to unwind a little bit in a beach vacation is basically what I do annually with my wife. So it was a nice reset, but the hot stove season goes on no matter if you're on a beach or you're back at home, so I'm right back in the thick of things here. Well, the hot stove season goes on, at least for another week. Yes, good point. Good point. Maybe I should take my vacation in two weeks. I don't know. Exactly. When the winter meetings are supposed to happen anyway, let's before we get to all that in an article that you posted in ESPN dot com where you get predictions from executives around baseball yesterday the national baseball Hall of Fame released its ballot for this year to give me something that you're really curious about this year and this year's voting because every year is voting as you know is very different. Well as soon as they released about, I tweeted out the guys that are going to be on it for the final time. Bonds and Clemens and these guys. And then the newcomers like David Ortiz. And I simply asked at the end of my tweet, do the steroid guys get in, especially the ones on the ballot for the last time. And buster's, you can imagine nothing has changed over the years. The responses I got were so polar opposite from one to the next for 20 minutes. It was just back and forth. Put them all in, people were throwing Pete Rose in there. Don't let them in. It was so this is a polarizing topic. And I see both sides of this. That's why it's a great debate. I really still do. I have softened my stance. If I was deciding this thing, I would certainly put Barry Barnes in starting with the fact that I thought he was the Hall of Fame player before the Roy era took over. So that's number one, but I probably would put most of these guys in because I know almost for a factor already our guys in, we could go through the names, other people talk about Mike Piazza, other people talk about bag one fish, and all these guys, you know, we've heard this before. I think at the end, the point has been made, you didn't deserve to be on the first 9 ballots. You didn't deserve to get in those the first 9 times. I think there's going to be some guys that get in. I think the fact that David Ortiz is on the ballot, you know, maybe voters send a message he doesn't get in right away, but he's going to get in..

"barry barnes" Discussed on Houston Matters
"This is houston matters. i'm craig cohen houston mayor sylvester turner tuesday fired city housing director. Tom mccaslin the move came. Just hours after mccaslin told houston city council members. He thought the mayor was steering. Some fifteen million dollars in federal hurricane harvey relief funds to a preferred developer discuss that and other developments in politics. We're joined now in. Today's political roundup by the university of houston's rene cross and rice university's mark jones rene mark. Good morning komo morning craig. Happy i nail fall. Happy fall down. Let me start with just a little more background. What what would down yesterday. and then i'll seek out your reactions to it. So mccaslin made the comments during a city council housing committee meeting. He was questioning. The city selections for to affordable housing developments receiving a combined twenty five million of hud funding designed to replace damaged. Housing lost during harvey mccaslin said what looked like a competitive process to award. Funding had a predetermined outcome and that the huntington at bay area development receiving fifteen million was not the city's best option as it would provide about a fourth of the number of affordable units. Another proposed development would mccaslin said quote. I'm being forced to participate in a charade that this was a competitive process. When i know it was not as news at sevens been reporting. Stay documents show. A company named harbor venture group is attached to that project and it is run by the mayor's former law partner and another partner at the firm were turner worked before he became mayor. Turner in a statement announcing mccaslin was fired. Denied doing anything wrong. Said there is no charade and called mccaslin comments puzzling inflated and wrong mark jones thoughts well i think we know what happened here The process was wired by mere. Turn his staff to take send housing contract for fifteen million dollars to his former law partner. Who put this group together in order to get this money. The housing department Time mccaslin recommended what would have given them four times. The number of affordable housing units for approximately the same price mccaslin clearly was not a a well respected professionals. Doing this for a while. This is probably a bridge too. Far from release strategy broke the camel's back that he wasn't willing to go along with the mayor's centrally severity in the process to Help help his former law partner maybe benefit himself in the future when he leaves office in perhaps returns to that law firm rene is at your read of it as well. I agree with mark E- even if the process was legal it not necessarily ethical In furthermore i'd like to know why we would spend fifteen million dollars for eighty eight units. That's it eight. Units for fifteen million when another bid was at three hundred sixty two units at fifteen million. So there's a lot about this whole case. that doesn't quite pass the smell test yet mark. The math doesn't necessarily scream affordable. Housing doesn't know and neither did. The housing department has a set of criteria uses. The the mayor's law partner finished very low but the mayor overruled. And that i mean i want. It is important that under houston's rules and laws american do is it's not illegal is just unethical in the c. Underbelly that we all don't like to see but we know exists but we tend to only see it. When you have courageous whistle blowers like tom. Mccaslin come forward and shine light on something that otherwise would have passed unnoticed. That said renee mccaslin set himself There have been other instances where his department has recommended that the city go way and the city ends up going another way on on a contract like this. So what set this particular one apart. I think more than likely it's just the number one the number the the amount of the money and the fact that mayor turner's former law partner. Barry barnes is so involved with this particular grape mark. The texas general land office which oversees distribution of harvey recovery funds says it is looking into the city's use of the funds but there's already been friction between the texas gio and the city of houston over harvey recovery. Money right right and what this does is it opens up a week fight for the mayor and allows the general land commission To our jill. Jalen office to go in and actually look at something where the mayor has done. Something that if not illegal is at least unethical and we have to remember george. Bush has to run in a republican primary for attorney general in march. So i think all the political hey that he can make at going after a democratic mayor who is engaged in suspect practices. I think we're gonna see the general and office and perhaps even the attorney general get involved in this case and again just as a reminder the background of all of this or at least part of this background is that the general end office failed to award any harvey relief money to the city of houston or harris county Initially out of a pile of funds only delayed a reverse course and promise seven hundred fifty million that would though to the county not to the city. rene mccaslin said. He was speaking in part. Because this case underscored what he called a culture of do it because i said so within the turner administration have we seen other examples that that backup that assertion i. I'm sure there are a number of council members that could give you all sorts of evidence of do it or else From mayor turner. But it's also been said about Other houston mayors. I do think that this could help a light far under those that are trying to Promote the idea of taking away some power of the strong mayor position in houston government. You know an issue that we will be on an upcoming Ballot markelle mccaslin also stressed to council members that houston quote That it's strong. Mayoral form of government. Quote should not mean that. The strong mayor is free from public or city council. Scrutiny or that he is quote free rein to make decisions without providing legitimate. Justifications for those decisions is that how you read how the city of houston is run today. Well yes we have a very rene mentor of very strong mayor system where there is really no check on the mayor other than public. Scrutiny and sunshine Absent that There's really no way to control. The mayor in this particular is rather thin skinned intends to use that power in access. I would. i'd say that was also the case with a bill white. Not so much with these parker. I think manage these.
Fear And Greed
"barry barnes" Discussed on Fear And Greed
"Interview, I'm Sean ayoma. We've got something a little different for you today, about an Aussie business that's doing things. Well, a little differently. So we may accompany budgie smugglers started as a joke, back in 2005 and has now grown into an iconic brand around the nation and increasingly around the world. The skimpy swimmers have built a cult following amongst everyone from larrikin to families, and especially elite athletes. The Mötley Crüe behind baji smuggler have shunned the typical business formalities in a whole variety of ways. Their job titles their marketing strategy and the way they interact with their community. Adam Len fourth is the chief smuggler. Yes, that's really what it says on the business card. The chief smuggler at raji smuggler, Adam, welcome to fear and grade. Thanks, Sean. It's great to be with you this morning. What's a light being a chief smuggler? I don't know. This is just kind of a hobby that's got a little bit out of hand. I mean for the first 8 or 9 years, budgie smug was just a hobby and a loss making venture. And then I don't know a few years ago things started to turn in momentum picked up and now yeah, it's a full-time job selling sort of fluorescent lycra to people around the world. Now, for those who don't know, budgie smugglers, it's fair to say they like if you ever see the swimmers, the male swimmers in the Olympics, they're all wearing those very brief speed as I would have grown up calling them. That's effectively what budgie smugglers are. So who had the original idea to make something of it? Yeah, so there was a boat called lucky Harris, who was the original sort of main driving force and it was just some blokes in a backyard getting pissed thinking it was funny to write fudgy smug on the back of a pit. It was just done on a pair of actual speedos. And then it was. But the trademark and then lucky got a proper job. He became the press secretary for the prime minister. Kevin Rudd at the time. And I kind of took the reins from there in 2008. And then yeah, it's just been a gradual kind of ascent like every year since then we've grown between 30 and 80%. But we've never had like Justin Bieber moment or Kardashian moment when the lightbulb goes off all around the world and we do three or 5 times in a year. It just sort of steadily gathered pace. Okay, so a few things there. Bhaji, you know you're not supposed to spell it with a Y Tony, but you spell it with a Y. Yeah, so the original pairs were made like you had to print the label with like a plaster sole print. Like if anyone's ever I and on a number on a kids sports Jersey that's how they were done and making the plates for them were quite expensive. And then you would have to buy like a thousand at a time. And so when we made them, we spelled it incorrectly with the wire and we just sort of found it funny. So it was too late to change back. We were committed. So, genius. We tell people that it has to do with trademark lore and they wouldn't understand. But yeah, it was just a flat out bowls off. So far, I like the strategic planning that went into this from day one. It's clearly there. You know, yourself and lochland Harris and other people involved, you obviously don't mind breaking rules and just doing things as they turn up. Yeah, well, I think at the start, we had an issue, and that was that no one was wearing buddy smuggle speedo style swimwear. And we were a company called budgie smuggler, who only made Brady smart swimwear. So we had to sort of think, how are we going to connect or get the average Australian bloke on board? And, you know, the typical kind of advertising for people in speedo style swimwear at that time. There was sort of Aussie bomb was quite big and it was kind of eroticized, bloke, you know, oiled up with a 6 pack and we didn't think that that would connect, I guess. So we were connect with me, didn't connect. No, no, me. And so we went about it a different way. The original plan was just for blogs to get in them and get loose. So we'd set like 20 bucks in cargo bar on ladies day, just roaming around in smugglers. But that wasn't entirely sustainable. And it kind of shifted from there to just people going around the world taking photos in them and sort of ironically, like we built a swimwear brand out of non water sports. So we're probably much bigger in rugby league, rugby union, Aussie rules, cricket, than we are in just playing ocean swimming. Okay, so that use of influence is a bit, well, it's not even influences originally. It was just sort of turning up at bars with not many clothes on. But you've really pushed through sort of influencer marketing. You've had some pretty big names wearing your swimmers. Yeah, so I think at the start, you know, the obvious thing if you're building a brand in Australia is around very sports focused culture. And how do you get some of those big names wearing your product and I remember a story right at the beginning, we got a call from the manager of Barry Barnes who was a wallaby from Queensland and he's like berry glove smug, you know, can we do something? So I went to mate with these manager and we sort of sat down and we started talking and he realized, I think how small budgie was at the time. I think you might have even asked us how much we were turning over and I was like, 40 grams of cheese. Okay, Matt, don't worry about a deal, he's a lot, you know, just so things can be done from sort of ten grand H and I thought about it. And I'm like, we're going to have to pay ten grand or more per athlete to wear our stuff. That's not ever going to be sustainable. So we had to think about it another way, which was like, how do we build something that the players actually want to win that genuinely going to embrace? Because we didn't have a checkbook that we could gain that kind of endorsement, so I guess. So yeah, we went around building something that the players just found funny and there was a good product that they enjoyed to wear. We make it all in Australia, which I think is a part of that. But in terms of how long it took to then watching the NRL and saying like half the players wearing smugglers, that took like 5 years. So it's definitely not a, if you're in a race, I'd probably go at it a different way. But over the long term, it's been to our benefit because when people have seen people wearing bhaji smuggler, it's been genuine, you know, the players have often bought them themselves. So I find the influencer thing a bit kind of cringe. It's something that we've shunned away from. But over the long term, we've been very fortunate that a lot of the boys and now the girls have got around us. A tiny habit, right? Whenever you think of baji smuggler often comes to mind and as much as you might laugh at him wearing very brief costumes in front of the cameras, he at least had the body to match. That sort of thing I'm not sure whether he was wearing your product or not. But that sort of in those images of him.

"Your knowledge man. We appreciate you on the podcast. Any time it's time for the pocket. Protector centrum the analytic numbers. You need to know well. Maybe anthony masterson as his name. Bs analytics is gay. What do you got for me. Anthony with about six weeks left in the regular season. We're starting to see the playoff races begin to take shape the reds there. Surging the padres. They're flailing the yankees. Well they can't be stopped but what's most important going forward could end up being each teams remaining schedule the dodgers chasing the giants still but they play each other only three more times a week in series at the beginning of september. The yankees only have one more series each with their division rivals red sox and rays while the al west might come down to the astros and as playing each other on each of the season's final two weekends the wild card race however could be the most intriguing of them all the giants. Dodgers are pretty much locked into the first spot. But cincinnati in san diego will be fighting to the finish however the rest of the way. The padres have the toughest remaining schedule based on opponent. Win percentage at five seventy eat a full thirty five points tougher than the next closest team. Arizona they have a goblet in their final twelve games by the way play. The giants braves dodgers the reds on. The other hand had the second easiest schedule left at four sixty seven win percentage ten of their final twelve games are in pittsburgh in washington by the way only philly has it easier than the red legs however don't count out the friars just yet this season. The padres are thirty. Two and twenty two against teams five hundred or better the best mark in the national league and only behind houston in all of baseball. These final six weeks are going to be phone was a big week in the big leagues for is it fair from. Mld bro dot com. Here's jr gambling. Miguel cabrera became the twenty eight member of baseball's distinguish five hundred. Home run club. Jr is if foul or is a fair to say he's the last five hundred homer guy. The mlb will see in a long time. That's how that is a foul. Of course you have the young bombers. Like t's junior and flagged guerrero junior who almost definitely will get barron about fifteen years or more but i did come up with to legitimate names. That should get their pretty soul. Nelson cruz was forty two. But he rakes like he's twenty one still and believe it or not he needs jets fifty seven more homers to get to five hundred boy. He really crept up on us. Only two men however have hit even thirty five career home or starting in their age. Forty one season. That's carlton fists with fifty three and barry barnes who had fifty four. So no one's ever even gun would cruise is attempting to do but despite his age crews have twenty six homers. This season so age is definitely just a number any still cooking. So i see him banging down these last fifty seven pretty easily over the next couple of years. Believe it or not giancarlo. Stanton is already two thirds of the way to five hundred homers. He has three hundred thirty. Three home runs entering wednesday's game and he's just thirty one years old now. He's had a lot of health problems or it have even more home runs so if you figure. He's on the upside of his health. He should cruise to five hundred runs. That'll be five more thirty homeless seasons that should about do it or eight. More twenty plus oma season scattered until he's about forty he can do it either way. These guys are in a great position to become the twenty nine in thirty the sluggers in history to achieve a mark of five hundred career homers. That almost guarantee them hall of fame induction money into more money now. It's time for betting on the basis. With dave gas guy that money roberts on as we close out the month of august in style. Hard to believe. September is here and so majorly baseball's postseason return anyways as we close out this month. Look at the dodgers in rockies. Game number one friday night i'm taking the l. a. No matter what their hot pursuit of the san francisco giants for the national league west title dodgers needed to keep pace with them. Rock is been brutal. This season. Fourteen in forty-six away from the happy confines. Of course field dodgers in this one to stir things out on the other side of the american league tampa bay rays or holding up. Everybody now boston the new york. Yankees who've come on strong as of late some tick and tampa there in baltimore in this matchup with mike walker versus harvey in the affair and the other game. I'm looking at isn't atlanta's the giants and the atlanta braves the should be fantastic. Pitching matchup max. Freed will be going for the home team in this affair. He's eleven and seven this year.

You're a great player for what you are. You're not agree. NBA player overall, right? Um, and it's just it's It's bad when you you have fans that have been waiting for Almost a year and a half two years to get out there to the to the court to see you play and you're just going to bag on him, and I just find that to be horrendous. Hey, real quick. Uh, today is sticky stuff crackdown to have you been told anything about it or how this is going to work or what's going to happen? Dude. Have you just looked at the numbers? Yeah, around the league. It's a joke. It's already happening. But in terms like we had a guy yesterday that was minus 300 on two of his pitches and minus of 1 50 on his fastball. That's an that's insane, including Alex. Would I heard from your broadcast and other quotes? Rpm? Uh, curiously, go check out the go check out the slider on that one.

Marcus Stroman has been another Gerrit Cole had one start Where his way down. But last one, I think he kind of He leveled out a little bit. Um, so it's gonna be interesting.

I just don't get why it's on the Empire's like at least bring someone in for Major League baseball. Have 30 people out there. You know, not each game, but I mean in all the stadiums, whatever you want, and and have someone check but put it on the umpires. I'm sorry. Like that's just a little. That's just wrong.

Players don't have pine tar you're about like it's not the same thing. Not the same thing. Not now, If you put the points are all over the barrel, and you're doing that stuff.

Players like you go to cold cold situations. Um, April. I'm interested to see like late this year like playoff time if there is cold Weather games What it's going to be like because they are cue balls. The biggest thing is they could add some tax to that ball would be nice. Um, And then you wouldn't have that position. Players are affected by this too.

They've started in fifty nine but he he also was an interim coach. A couple of times head coach stayed involves scouting doing so. I think some front office stuff with a couple of teams anyway. The the guy loves the game he absolutely loved the game any loved everything about it and he never complained ever about anything that i can can see and i. I really liked that. What a way to go. That's how you want to go out and it's ironic that a you know that this great athlete who i've really taken to over the last three or four days I say a little piece on hall of fame guys for the baseball hall of fame. Who will never ever now. Make it into the hall of fame And it's not the way you wanna go out men. What because i was reading it today. I think it's clements. Roger clements and barry barnes. Yeah first of all. I didn't realize if you if you don't get voted in on so many ballots. Eventually you're taking off right. Yeah and those two guys who were great athletes and you know tag with pd. That that they're done. That's the story. I read today. They will never give him the hall of fame and god. That's gotta be that's gotta be a crushing deal you know if you if you had all the stats to get in whatever. The minimum requirements are. And then. Today you wake up going. Sorry man you're gonna have to make up a story to your grandkids so yup no. I'd say it's definitely a definitely a shame. It's on them. And it's too bad because you know there when you look at barry bonds and roger clemens. I mean that's as good as it gets as far as an outfielder in a pitcher go. Clemens won a myriad of cy young awards. Barry bond to the home run record and You know if you're a fan of both guys you'd probably make the argument that if they hadn't taken pd's they still would have had hall of fame careers and that may well be true but we will never know because those guys took away that opportunity by injecting themselves by rubbing the cream on themselves and and looking for that advantage they were cheaters and as a result They're going to be remembered forever as such. They will live a life that none of us could ever dream of. In terms of the millions of dollars they earn. So i don't feel too badly.

"This is actually extraordinarily good news, especially when you see what's going on some other places around the country like California. Like Colorado. I don't know. If Arizona still see a big spike. Maybe there's his tailed off a little bit. This is actually very, very good news. Let me bring you up to speed on. The seven day average off positive covert test rates in the state of Wisconsin is down to 7.2%. In other words, the average positive test rate seven out of 100 come back. Positive. That means 93 out of 100 come back negative. Two months ago, literally exactly two months ago on the 22nd of November That seven day average of positive test rates was 13%. The positive testing rate in the state of Wisconsin has almost been cut in half. That is a significant Downward trend over a significant period of time. Not just a little blip downward. This has been a downward trend has been going down word for about 60 days. The others. I've always said this. What you needed to assess is how how rapidly the disease excuse me how rapidly the virus is spreading and what level of disease the virus is causing. We now see that the spread of the disease in Wisconsin And the spread of the virus rather seems to be slower. You're slowing. Well, are people getting sicker or just a sick or not A sick well, The other thing to look at is covert related hospitalizations. As of yesterday's update. 808 Wisconsinites were in the hospital due to Cove. It Either because of covert or with Colvin. Two months ago, That number was over 2000. 808. It was in the low 2000. I forget what the specific number was. That roughly is a 60% decrease in hospitalizations of Wisconsin. It's from Cove it from covert 19. That is an enormously positive development and what it's showing what I think is probably a couple of different things. First of all, I mean, this is kind of a sad reality. Ah, lot of the people who are very vulnerable to have serious disease from with regard to these symptomology of covert 19 may have already died. But the other thing Is that the therapeutics? Getting better with regard to treating Over 19 in early stages. Better therapeutics, less serious disease less need for hospitalization so unbalanced. The cove in numbers in the state of Wisconsin are looking much Much better, by the way, so we've got this now knew of vaccine. Listen, I want a one b, You know, we're in stage one B. No added to the one B list. I think we're still in one a in terms of actual administration, but added the one B list are Wisconsinites over the age of 65 You know who else is on the one be lifts. Inmates prisoners. I mean, that's why are we giving vaccines to prisoners? Massive amounts. I mean, the mission of the vaccinations is to get the vaccinations to the most vulnerable population. The science says that the inmate population is younger. Part of this is identity politics. Inmates are victims. Thus, they must be given deference. There's also a racial component to this inmate populations tend to be disproportionately minority, while elderly Wisconsinites are disproportionately white. Needed tol. Have your inmates at, you know, pick a place the Green Bay Correctional Institute or Sturdevant, or what pond or wherever get immunized before Some, You know, 75 year old woman with diabetes is ridiculous, absolutely immoral. Let me take one. Quick call here in Cedarburg. Mike, is there Mike around? Go ahead, sir. Fights very two points. If I may 1st of all, if you want to save more minority lives, you actually simply vaccinate the elderly. Any first year medical student or epidemiology student knows that. Because a disproportionate number of people of color who are older are the ones who die of the disease. A nothing we shouldn't vaccinate prisoners, but it's not people of color percent. It's older people who include people of color number two. This is what happens is that we allow the Democrats to put in any kind, any form of socialized medicine. Happen to be a part owner in a senior apartment complex, and even not even a nursing home a couple hours north of Milwaukee. We got all 100% of our residents vaccinated two weeks ago. You know how we did it. We contract it directly with a private company out of state and bypass the state of Wisconsin correctly, the state can never do anything is efficient. As private as private enterprise. Excellent points. Mike. Thanks for the call. Have a great weekend. You appreciate that. He's right about both things very well stated. Yeah. J. Weber has been wondering, and his chauffeur now just just days and what's the Why we have freezers full of vaccine? Can't we just load up some syringes and jam moments of old people's arms? Well, if by then there's also this notion that somehow in the state of Wisconsin that minority populations are being disproportionately affected by covert 19, the African American population. The state of Wisconsin is roughly 6.5% of the total population. You know the percentage of individuals who have died of covert how many? What percentage are African American? 6.6%. It's just about dead even if it is almost absolutely statistically perfectly. Representative of the proportion of African Americans in the general population is a cracker. You know what Henry Aaron died today at the age of 86. Henry Aaron. Probably the most legendary Milwaukee Brave. Is that true? It was Eddie Mathews up there. Warren Spahn for sure. Would be another one. But I would think that that Aaron being the home run king for you know, three decades or longer, would certainly probably be considered the most. Impactful and the most famous Milwaukee brave. 755 career home runs as a record that's stood for 33 years until the steroid era. You know the steroid era hitters began crushing Very tightly wound baseballs on a very hitter friendly ballparks. You know, if you think was Barry Bonds a better hitter than Hank Aaron? I don't think so. I mean, I just said that Barry Barnes is not a good hitter. And by the way, what people forget is this Hank Aaron was not just a great power here. He was a great hitter, period, lifetime batting average of 305 and from 1957 to 1971. Hank Aaron was a legitimate triple crown with the Triple Crown means being the leader in home runs R B I in batting average. In the National League is a legitimate triple crown threat. Every year he was in the top three or four of those categories every year. Now he never wanted Triple Crown never got all three of them in the same year, but led the individual categories several times. Here's what else that a lot of people forget. When Hank Aaron was trying to break Babe Ruth's record of 714 home runs the career record. This is 1974. He was getting death threats, many of which were racist in nature. Plus, he was playing for a team in a southern city who's playing in Atlanta. That was less than a decade removed from Jim Crow laws. I mean, With regard to African Americans in Major league baseball in the 19 fifties. One good thing was that there wasn't a lot of Travel. Well, there was no there were no franchise is located in the south. I think that when there was further south with ST Louis Obviously not that way anymore where you really had problems with African Americans getting into Your major league baseball systems in the minor leagues. Meyer leads were scattered all over the place, including the South, and that's where you had situations where the team couldn't eat at the same lunch counter or sleep in the same hotel or sometimes even, you know other accommodations in club houses, you know..
