"Org one of the techs tears Steve last week I didn't Congress passed the and then the president signed into law making animal abuse of federal crime that's absolutely right called the pact act I was talking to Brian Newnan about it here the other day and yeah closes loopholes so see state by state by state have their own laws about what is a crime for animal cruelty and and if I go from Illinois to Wisconsin and do something awful in Illinois may not be as awful or awful at all in Wisconsin or the other way around so this way prosecutors can play on a level playing field if that makes sense it also enhance things into the law the previously want there of for example no one thought when depending on the state or even by federal law animal cruelty are already is a federal law that was loosely defined that no one thought about spreading these videos online that I don't even want to be specific about but horrific videos use your imagination they're terrible and and it wasn't a federal crime now it is for those videos to go anywhere from state to state and if it's online of course it's gonna go from state to state so it closes that loophole they previously weren't included in the law so I love it I love the fact that we've got this we needed this and that's a good thing but it's also not only good for animals I I argue that it benefits all of us and and here's the reason why I think it benefits all of us we know that animal cruelty clearly is bad right but we also know that when people are cruel or harmful to animals they will will be likely harmful to other people we know that when domestic abuse and domestic violence occurs if there's an animal in the house that animals oftentimes practice upon first and then children are abused which is why now veterinarians must report animal abuse or suspected animal abuse to the department of children and family services why is that because that's what I just said it's likely the kids if there are kids in the house would also be abused as well so this law in my opinion makes it likely we are going to be better stewards for ourselves if we are if we are kinder to animals I do believe we will be kinder to one another at least that's the hope that's my hope so I received an email hello my friend I really like you on the radio but we listen to you with great pleasure thank you for all the good quality programs you present keep up the good work please send me a gift or souvenirs maybe something with your logo good luck and I'm not gonna read the name here mostly because I really can't pronounce it it's from and it has a street address from the Ukraine so if I reply if I send them something is that is is that quid pro quo I hope not I I know that people get these kinds of emails all the time but the timing of it just made me think about what's going on in the news do you know people who you think have absolutely everything and I mean absolutely everything what do you get that person for Christmas or Hanukkah what what do you think you know someone like that well how about this the makers of a south African Jan now have the perfect gift it's a gin so the person has to like Jen but what makes this gin different really different is that it is infused with elephant dung you heard me right it's the creators of the inland in loud Jian less and Paula Ansley they stumbled upon the idea the both scientists and they said you know what fruits and flowers are healthy for us and elephants digest so little of what they eat so so much of what comes out the other end of elephants is undigested and might actually these both tentacles to be healthy for us and I wonder if we can create a gin that includes these things so they've been doing that they collect the dung themselves so when you go up to them if you should you meet these guys when you shake hands with them make sure but you know I mean that real they're actually out in Africa walking around collecting elephant dung they described the gins flavor as lovely wooded almost spicy earthy won the changes subtly with the seasons and the location depending on what the elephants eat the gin bottles are marked with the date and accordance of where the elephant dung was collected so you're able virgin affection autos to compare the different vintages based on location it takes how many how many this sounds like a straight line for a joke right how many bags of Dhangar collected do you think for about four thousand bottles of gin all you need are five the heads of elephant dung and you've got four thousand bottles of gin the botanicals are sterilized dried again and placed in an airing cupboard of eventually the remains are infused in the G. N. which cost about five hundred ran or about thirty two dollars in the gym is a big hit with tourists then there's a website of course there's a website I have information about it on my website and then Steve Dale dot TV should you be interested in this I mean truly it is the gift for somebody that has absolutely everything before we talk to John cast and I'll be talking about this some more this morning but I want to hear your ideas to waste of best devise your home now yeah Jonathan Hanson talked about Christmas trees and we know about we know about certain things up everybody does certain things right but how about some things that everybody might not do so let me give you one idea I've got some that will offer throughout the show so one is to give your walls and ceilings best of the core I mean how many people hang things from the ceiling or put things on their walls like ribbons and Christmas signage and all that so that's an interesting idea I have some more ideas the take it much further and into other places in the home which I will tell you about through out this program sure is a.

"Indeed feeling good indeed over at Wrigley field. Where Wilson controllers is just set one into the night. And the cubs of one on a walk off to one cubs over the brewers the series tied at a game apiece. Harry tiny what's Levin wins in their last thirteen for your Chicago nationally, ballclub how about three walk off home runs in last five games. Yeah. That's that's a good stat. Right. There does that. And now with the victory tomorrow. The cubs will once again have another series victory. Sunday night baseball for Z cubs tomorrow night. There was the highlight moment for me today in the cub game as I was doing. The White Sox postgame show jab on that way. Check post game. Did you like it today? Did you? I did I was and white sex weekly. Tomorrow attempt shabby here, you should White Sox weeklies with Brian Newnan tomorrow. He's my favorite White Sox ambassador. We we will. We will miss you tomorrow. Harry White Sox weekly tomorrow after the show. So okay. There. It was the eleventh or twelve inning today and bases are loaded and there's two out and who's coming to the plate. Very is Addison Russell game on the line. Are you going to cheer for him? Here. It is he ends up striking out. I didn't have the sound. I have no idea if they didn't boom. But that that was that's like the ultimate moment in Addison. Russell should I refer should I not for root forum? I was I was over Wrigley for about five innings on Friday came to the plate. I just I did nothing which is my anything for anyone. But it just felt like more like, I'm definitely not. I'm not if it was me. I'm not going there to share them. I'm not going there to boom. He gets a base it that's gonna win the game. I don't think I'd share them. I just think I would stay silent. That's how I would go about it. I think that's not how it's going to be. If you've won the game, they would've jumped up and down gone crazy, right? What he did what he did. And I still we still don't know the extent of it. You know, we still don't know. Actually, you know, how it wasn't good really bad. You know, I'm a guy that believes in second chances. And I think the cubs have gone. Out of their way to give Addison Russell very big second chance here. You know? I want him to get a hit in that situation. I want the cubs to win. So that's what I'm doing. I'm Sharon for the cubs to win the ballgame. Right. What what was his first night back? His first night back was over three with a walk Wednesday. Right. 'cause I was watching that game. And I heard I I was watching the game when he came to bat for the first time smattering of boos it. Well, I describe it as mixed fair enough. Did you hear the cheers? And you hear the Buber's? What bothered me about that one is? Okay. So you have the mix when he comes up there his first time, and then he strikes out, and then they pile on them. So that's just. He got when he came up and he got when he went back. Right. So, but he got it worse when he went back, and I think if you're an adult, and you have some level of rational understanding of the world, it's not about the result with him. If you're going to boom, right, right? Then then go ahead, and boom, but you don't let just because he strikes out or grounds out or whatever doesn't come through to pile on at that point. Then to me, you're you're just a clown. And and it's it's it's not he heard you the first time you don't need a hammer him when he when he does something wrong just feels off. I I know that all's fair in love and war. And this is sports. And it's and it's professional sports. He gets paid millions of dollars. And he did some terrible things feel the resulted in them getting a forty game suspension. And if you don't want to cheer them, that's great. And you want to boom when he comes to play go ahead, but to to make it about the result. I I don't think that's right. And I guarantee you if there's one more incident with Addison Russell. That you know, physically abusing any at any level. You know, a woman. He's gone cubs will not he might be gone, regardless. I I think you think he untradable do you think I know second chances all the time for guys? So Kareem hunt deal the NFL's a whole nother yet is I mean, that's that's. But. Baseball. Arouse jabbing second chance right here. One World Series was shooting off a gun in a garage. And who knows what else the guy was doing? Closer for we're trying to win the World Series come on over. We'll we'll even give you up a tremendous prospect laboratories for you. No problem. I mean, it's it's one after another. I it's it's been happening in sports for years. I do think now that we know more about how to educate the athletes how to educate not just the athletes, but sometimes it's coaches managers involved. There's front office guys involved, you know, with with certain situations in certain sports. I I'm walking example of second chance. You know? I think you gotta give them a second chance. But I agree with you. If you're gonna bloom if it doesn't matter what he did at the plate. Like if he had homered would people not have been doing him with had been cheering him one that he made? Now, I'm really gonna right, okay. Doesn't make sense grow up. Get get a sense of something. And I'll say this about what happened with the fan at Wrigley this week with the symbol alleged. The gesture white supremacists. Gesture okay. To number one. If indeed that's what he was doing. The never be allowed back in the ballpark comes to the right thing. I do find a little bit odd that we don't know who this guy is apparently they've they try to reach out to him. And if I was that guy, I was innocent of doing something. I would be I would be leading the newspapers and the radio and everybody else don't hey, I was just playing some stupid game. I meant I meant nothing. But it's just weird that we haven't heard word one from this guy. But what bothers me about the whole thing. More than anything else. Doug, Glanville is one of my favorite people in the in in all of this guy. I mean when I first started on the business airy one cubs clubhouse. I remember driving down the wall playing the Dylan son L yet, great great band. Headlight one headlight Marlene is I remember putting numbers in his titles. I remember driving down one headlights playing on the radio Ford Escort twenty some odd years old going. I'm like, oh my God. I got a press pass to be in the cubs clubhouse. This is awesome. And I got to ask somebody for an interview. Right. So here's Doug Glanville, and he's in the clubhouse. He's a rookie. It's like ninety six and is he can I can I talk to you. Yeah. You wanna do it right here? I'm expected say yes, I know what I was doing. I even on a first record of tape recorder or the plug in my and this guy, you know, you right before the game, right? Ryan the club was for. Yes. You want do it right here? And he's just always been this first class guy. Very bright, incredibly smart pen pen. You know, Ivy league school went to college four years of college the war to the big leagues late. He had to work as way through the minor leagues. Never the price processed have been rising and rising and rising working on his game. Earning his way gets his chance plays. Well for the cubs traded the Phillies for Mickey more in Dini. I hated that deal. Even though more Dany ended up helping the cubs get to the wildcard, whatever. Don't. But the point that he's been first class on and off the field his entire career and for him to be in the middle of this whole thing and people are writing on Twitter at him taking shots. Hey, Manny didn't mean anything and that he's I it. It hurts my heart that he has to deal with that baseball. Was seventy two African American players eight percent across the game. And here's a guy who has been a great ambassador for the game. And he's just there to do a job. And you got some Yahoo behind him. Doing whatever. Right. I just hate the Glanville's in the middle of it. All you know, I'm a huge fan of dog. Pam to jersey numbers with the cubs. Can you give me either one? Wow. Jersey numbers with the cubs. It's embarrassing than on this big Doug, Glanville gain. I don't know. Number one. Never one is correct Karm. And then he had another one number eight look at you. Okay. You gotta pass the crown over one in eight, dammit. All right. So that's my that's a little cover. We gotta get into news here. We have time out we do. All right..

"Wars and all the changes that have gone on in the Star Wars universe because change is inevitable. No matter where you are. No matter what you're doing changes happening. But if you're like me, you start to wonder what how did how do things start to change in? How did how do things like me to all of a sudden get trash, and how do things like black lives matter how social changes civil rights voting sexual harassment? All these all these things change or maybe in this day and age in this political climate, you're thing how did how political movements start to change? Well, I cannot give you the answer. But the man who can is professor cash sunshine. He is with us. Now, he's the Robert Walmsley university professor at Harvard Law School. He also has taught law at the university of Chicago. And he was the administrator of the White House office of information and regulatory affairs in the Obama administration his latest book how change happens is. Is on sale everywhere. And it is a fascinating fascinating piece of literature versus state. Thanks for taking some time to join me today, thanks to close to here. So a lot of a lot of questions, and it was as I was reading through the book and trying to figure this out. I I kept thinking well where can we start because to answer to ask the simple question. Well, how does change take place? There's so many levels to that question. I do want to start though with the role of social norms because that seems to be a running thread throughout the book that social norms really do have a role in in change first of all can you can you tell everybody what you mean by the social norms. And then how are they so instrumental in change? Social norm, basically refers to what you're supposed to do. So maybe if someone is acting appropriately you're supposed to grin and bear Barrett's. Maybe the schools are segregated. You're supposed to smile and go to the ones that you're assigned. Maybe if. Kinda not allowed to be scare lesbian and do our closeted and social norm. By me that if you liked President, Trump peak grades, or is being great, you might not say that because the Norman your community might fit that. So sometimes norms can make for political correctness with very large. Meaning, you know, it's not correct to say one thing or another. We'll have that sometimes norms weekend or soften. So there might be a norm that says that sexual harassment at some crimes is okay, even wall, and that nor might start to collapse as people start saying to or maybe someone says like, Rosa Parks and go to the back of the bus and that kind of starts to shout the norm. And when the dorm starts being shattered, then people start saying what they really think and then societies can go wash her changing, very rapid here. Now, you mentioned in the book, though, that one person you, and you just referenced Rosa Parks that one person is it's usually very hard for one individual to make that change happen is it, let's take Rosa Parks. For example, is it because there were so many people already who were questioning that social norm that it just took one person to put a crack in that wall. And then everything was able to flow a little freer because sometimes as you mentioned in the book one person speaks out, and they they could be ostracized because they're not they don't have enough support at that point. Yes. So the says exactly right. So the key point is that if there is something inside our has saying that something is wrong or bad. If one person says publicly nothing is wrong or bad. We might think. Well, they're gonna get in trouble or they're crazy person. Or what's the point? It might involve the varmint it might evolve animal welfare might his Gration one way or another. And if we think that we're gonna be just with one crazy person. Then what's the point of that a purchase? And she's a woman tremendous, courage. Of course, it's not just the case though, that she was speaking for the hitting the views of many millions of people. It's also when she spoke for them so to speak by doing what she did. There were claw of other people who are doing something like that. Or who are prepared to do. So it's not like her action, though history rightly celebrates her action that you know. Woes civil rights move by itself. She needed more than a village. Here's number of people's basically there at the time. So for one person as you say, it's really tough one person is very visible Martin Luther King, of course, is very visible and candle daily secret Jews of many people. That's also true. The recent hashtag me to lead to the wits get seventies. And it certainly true of the Gration little to the current period and people have different valuations. You you've alleyways of these boots. That's what they share in common with people get freed up to say what they had formerly saw was kind of allowed now. So that that plays into another point you made the book about social social interactions. So if somebody is against one of these social norms in a bubble, it's not going to work. But as you mentioned in the case. Of the civil rights movement. There were a lot of people in different areas, but all kind of working toward the common good or with at least the common idea. And once those people all started interacting, then then the change was able to take hold more than if it was just a couple of people here and there. Give you a recent research is very simple and vindicates the point just made which is in in in Saudi Arabia by custom was aren't allowed to join the labor force unless there has been say, it's okay now young Saudi men were surveyed to say that asked you think it's okay. If your wise work in the labor force and overwhelming, they said they said, yes, that's great uncle before that then the rest, what do they think most men like them saying? And they said most men like think, it's a terrible thing. So they privately was working outside the home is phony, but they publicly including their families that it's not funny because that's what they thought to normalize. Here's the kicker. They weren't formed that the research. So it most young Saudi time for wives, we will be the home and that information. Five self produced a very large, spike, four months later, the number of people that is what's who are applying labor force, the dorm collapse was people earned that people that actually actually agree with it. And that little research tells us something about what happens in social movements small ones. How tells us something about when products are to take off when people think, you know, maybe organic food. It's okay to go when they think maybe it's it's just a fine thing to support a political candidates from STAN was gay. When they think there's a businessman kind of loud, but he might make America great again. And so long as I know that a lot of people like that. Take something like that. And they're not that different for me. And the speaking out, then they feel they can do that. Then we can see a really dramatic much in a matter of weeks or months how does this differ, then from when we talked to young kids about peer pressure. It sounds. It. Sounds like these are similar concepts. That if I'm if I'm worried about as an adult what the social norm is. And I'm going to stop myself from speaking out about something because I think, you know, a lot of people aren't aren't thinking the same way m I much different than an adolescent who doesn't want to wear a certain kind of shoes because nobody else in school. Where's those shoes? It's overlaps. So it's a great question. But it's a little bit different. So if you think in your head, you know, this this this practice is wrong. Maybe a practice that's unkind or cruel or something. But the social norm is the practices fine. Then the problem is not to say what you think, and that's a precondition for many of the socialist that we've observed over the last fifty years, it's actually precondition to the American revolution. Where many people in the colonies thought British rules awful. And we have to get rid of it that they needed permission slip from the social support of lots of other people like them to like the Saudi Arabia study. And then we have you know, we had a Eric ago pure peer pressure. It might be that there's some voice in the had people saying, you know, I don't want to drink but under pressure to drink. If that's the. The underlying problem or issue than it is quite similar to one hundred discussing though, it doesn't have the moral feature. Where people aren't saying, you know, they don't think there's a deep injustice being done often peer pressure beings. People have a particularly strong conviction one way or the other is good to stay up till ten PM is a great thing to be out at night till midnight. They might not think it is or isn't. But if the peers are either doing it or not doing that can greatly affect what they are going to choose to. Let's we've talked about a lot of good change coming with mentioned, the civil rights movement, and and of sexual harassment were or the the attention be called the sexual harassment. But there's also. Get some social or political movements that are not good. And yet, even though there's there's people who are sure think these are bad. They still tend to get they still seem to grab hold is it you had mentioned in the book about suppressed beliefs in values and the those getting oxygen. Explain that phenomena because if if something bad is able to come come out, even though there's enough people standing against them. How can we how can we there? Stop those the bad movements of from taking hold or identified that these may be coming in the future. So there's historical example, that hits what you're saying. There's a current one. The historical example is the rise of schism which was partly a kind of provision slip given to people who didn't like very much to talk and act on the basis of what they probably thought and killings of Jews and others and Hitler's rise. This is not by any news. But it's partly just permission slip that the social norm against anti-semitism. It didn't slip flipped upside down. So there became a norm for semitism on the influence. People. Didn't particularly dislike Jews and some of the former Nazis interviewed in the nineteen sixties were incredibly eloquent about this saying we oppose Hitler who who oppose tipplers depends on the circumstances. Who's in the room? What the norm was and even then if people said they opposed didn't oppose it depends on who they were talking to contemporary example. I think is the rise of racial hate speech and hateful action, which we've seen. It's been appears to have been documented by numbers that acts of rations by the way to violence spiked a bit in the last few years and stipulating that the date is correct. It's probably fair to say that recent unleashing. Let's say of white supremacist plinking by people who may not themselves really have much interest in white supremacist, but has been less clamping down the expression white supremacist attitudes that has contributed to very ugly words, and that's pretty bad. But worse than that. To actual violence. Why one we have to take a quick break? But when we come back, I wanna continue on this. And you talk a lot about tipping points as well. So where in in the current movement can we identify where where the tipping point was? And can we identify just in any social movement where the actual tipping point is professor sunshine is my guest. He is the author of how change happens you can find the book everywhere that find books are sold. More with the professor in just a minute on seven twenty WGN Brian Newnan, seven twenty WGN, professor Cass sunshine is my guest. He's the Robert ones that university professor at the Harvard Law School, he was the former he is the former administrator of the White House office of information and regulatory affairs in the Obama administration. He also taught law at the university of Chicago his latest book how change happens is out. Now, the co author his last book nudge, improving decisions about health, wealth and happiness and nudge. Comes into play in this book as well. But let's go back, professor, sunshine. We were talking about we talked about, social and political movements that seem beneficial to the vast majority of people taking hold we also talked about negative, social and political movements taking hold and I wanted to talk about the concept of tipping point. We there there seems to be that point in every movement. But for example, we were talking about the current state of the increase of racial violence, and hate speech. And we're as we as you look back and you track things with Reaser. How do we identify tipping point four something like that? Well, it's easy in the abstract. And know exactly how it happens. It's a little harder to get a clear on his kinda see of events. Exactly what the right moment was. So let's talk about the easier. One is it might be. It might be that if you know take a take the question, whether you're gonna join some environmental movement he might have in your head of concern about thirty or climate change. But you're busy and what point are gonna join. It might be that you're the sort of person who will join that. If you see that it's starting to get some oxygen that you need to see that. I if you were one of the people who join it once it's getting oxygen, and it might be there are a lot of people like you. So it's getting oxygen and that is getting people like you. Then there's another group of people who need to see people like you go, then they will go to and hey, you could do a little risk to make this more clear, but. After that third layer people have gone is might be that's the tipping point. And then you're going to get the Clean Air Act where you're gonna get people in Chicago, you know, Darry determined to press the state legislature to do something about your quality. Illinois. So that's how it goes in terms of particular moments. I'll tell you one that was a really has been point of the recent past listen the line of the actress tweeted that it's it has to and within twenty four hours. Forty five percent of American Facebook users had someone in their friends network who had tweeted each SAP too..

"Brian Newnan seven twenty WGN. Yeah. Easter happy Paso. If you're enjoying the day lot of people I saw even after they got out of their Easter finery. They were out to working in the yard today. Because I don't wanna get too cocky, I don't want to think that we're that. We're over the hump, but I hear you saying it mid seventies tomorrow. I know it says seventy today. Cooling down middle of the week. I don't know what that means in this town, it could mean it's back down to twenty do. I put the boots away. Can I finally hang the the parkers up? I don't ever have closet. I know minds on the kitchen chair just right by the door. But once winter's over then I put it away. Now, I have not jinxed myself by putting it away yet because two weeks ago, I we have one of those little boot trays, you know, by the door. So when you come in you put your boots on it and finally two weeks ago, I put it away. And you know, what happened a few days after that? Don't you the S word? So I learned my lesson with the boots. I'm not too sure when I can actually put the coats away today. I almost brought a coat just because I know where we're at. And I know that even though, you know, it was warmer at home than it was when I got here, but. I don't want to jinx. So I'm not I don't know. What to do? I've got one in the car, and I've got a light jacket in here. Just testing case. Right. What are we what are we going to get passed? Yeah. I don't want to do anything in the yard yet. I see people out there. They're they're putting down flowers guy across the street was taken a stump out of his yard Shane. But I was like I'm not I'm not getting into any landscape yet. It's too early. I'm not gonna put down seat. I'm not gonna play flowers because the minute I plant some flowers frost. Yeah. Everything's gonna die. And I hate that having to cover everything that's a lot of work to go cover everything. And then uncover everything I just hate that. I don't have time for that. I barely. I've kind of do the first time. I'm not doing it a second third time. That's insane. Have you ever heard Memorial Day? Here is like I mean, I'm Morial day. Sorry mother's mother's day is like the the line. That's when you can start planning because I'll tell you why. When I learned that was two years ago. Because we bought all these beautiful flower baskets, and we hung them all over the yard in at the end of April. Oh, my they look gorgeous. And then boom, we got a cold snap. They were dead all of we had to replace all of these baskets. And then I said to my wife when we got him. I said is this a little too early? Oh, no, it's fine. We'll put them out. Now. Do you think do you think I'm the kind of guy who said I told you? So as I was throwing those out we're writing pulling out the credit card to buy to rebuy, all these flowers. I rolling and. Yeah, you're exactly right. I did not let her forget it. So last year we were talking about getting flowers, but she and I didn't have to remind her. She said, oh, we're going to wait till after mother's day. Oh, that's good idea. And this year same thing where we we're not getting anything 'til after mother's day fantastic idea. See quick, she's smart that woman smart enough to snag me. I agree. I agree. That's right. I said it nobody believes it. But I said all right parents, and I come my self as one of these a new poll says some parents are killing adult kids life skills. If you are one of these parents, you'll probably shaking your head right now. Well, that's not me. I would never do something. Like that. Are you? Sure. Because unfortunately, a lot of parents are doing it. And it starts when they are in grade school and in highschool, are you constantly reminding your kids that their homework is do that they have to take their soccer shoes with them that they have practice after school that they every little thing. Are you letting them are you letting them make their own decisions? Are you letting them forget things sometimes and if you lay out their lunch, and they forget it. Well, are you letting them figure out? Okay. If you're in high school, there's a lunch room, you could probably get something to eat their school's gonna let you starve or are you running to school with their lunches, and their homework and everything Well, if you're doing that. Maybe you're one step away from being Laurie law. Yeah. That's right. Maybe you're would step away for big, Felicity Jones. For listening Huffman, and you are bribing schools to get your kids in which I still don't understand that. But it's a pattern of today's parents taking control so their children's succeeded in void avoid disappointment and failure and listen as apparent no kid nobody wants their kid to be disappointed or fail. But how else do we learn because as a Dulce we all we all have to face disappointment. I would like to meet at delta was never faced disappointment or failure. Because I have a feeling I would not like that person. I don't think I think disappointment and failure if not all the time, obviously. But every once in a while if you've if you have to face adversity, it makes you a better person, it makes you a stronger person. Well, a new poll was conducted by the New York Times and the morning console. Then it showed that parents don't stop handling things for their children when they become adults. I'm I'm still we still monitor this parents group from Tulane where Molly went to college. Even though she's been out suppressing a year. But I'd like to see, and these are the kind of things that always baffled me when when she was in college. And now that she's out, and I'm just really removed from it. I read these posts, and it it amazes me the extent to which some parents will go to coddle and baby their children. There was a post the other day from a woman asking the hive mind to help her. Figure out what could be done because her son who's a I think he was a sophomore sophomore in college. So this kid's eighteen nineteen years old, maybe twenty San to sophomore year could be nineteen twenty. This kid had left his sunglasses in one of his lecture halls. And she just wasn't sure what to do and wasn't sure what he should do. They were two hundred dollar rape bands. And how how on earth? Could he function without mom getting other adults? To give them advice. Had been me and answering. My advice would have been telling me, you know, next pair of sunglasses. Yes. To by by his own. Now, why first of all this? This is old man. Brian coming out who still thinks, you know sunglasses should be like seven dollars because for a long time. I used to lose sunglasses and sit on 'em and stuff. So before I needed prescriptions. I never paid more than ten dollars for sunglasses because ours I pick them up wherever it is. Like, all right. I'd wear it for a while. They'd get broke it or I leave him somewhere, and it was only ten bucks. So I had I had Abed sunglass just cheap sunglasses me Z Z top nothing wrong with that. So two hundred two hundred dollars sunglasses. I guess now if they're prescription or, you know, the prices go up, but still why are you asking what your son should do? He's nineteen or twenty. He should know what to do take care of your stuff. So we keep according to this. We don't stop removing obstacles to child frustration or defeat. Thus earning ourselves, the moniker of snowplow or law and more. Parents. There are some things that came out of this study that if they do not shock you discussed you and amaze you you're probably guilty of them. So I'm wondering from you at three one two nine eight one seven two hundred at what point do you start letting your kids feel some disappointment? You know, you can look back. You can look at the the college cheating entrance exam entrance cheating scandal as the big picture. You know? I think that is I think that's a really good way for young people to begin. Processing disappointment. So when did you when did you start letting your kids deal with disappointment? How much are you involved in not, of course, the important stuff? Clothing food shelter when they're little, but as they start getting older when did you start cutting the cutting the strings Marija some of these findings from this study. And it is it is shocking. We'll get to that. After this seven twenty WGN. You're coming home with a trunk full of groceries, and it's raining hard you pull into your driveway hit the garage door remote? And nothing happens. Now what green tea.

I get to be in front of muscles my win. And I got there. And I was is. He was looking he's he's looking at me. Like, I was saying thank you. Thank you and holding my heart and thank you. So it was an amazing surreal experience. Thankfully, my friend recorded it. And then his video team must have thought. This was very because he doesn't really dedicate songs to fans like that. They sent me they isolated the actual video feed on this. So I have this crisp perfect Cristine video of him dedicating it, and you can't see me. But he turns and smiles I mean, it's it's awesome. It's unbelievable. But what I just want to say. I apologize. I'm running a little here. But he's got four hours. That's true. I only had two so I'm dying here. But the crazy thing about the story and what life is. So think about this. Two weeks before my friend. Has a dispute with this online secondary market and gets these bad tickets that he says he didn't order, right? If he would have gotten the tickets, he originally ordered. He doesn't go to Madison Square Garden that day and get the two front row tickets, right which then inspires me to want to go there and get my front row seat. If I'm not in the front row. Elton doesn't see me and doesn't make this connection. Because I really believe he was going to do. I think he had every else I think was going to say because he said I have friends here. I'm not as friend. Right. Right. Right. So I think he called an audible and just said, you know, what this guy is at all these concerts and look at them tonight. He's going nuts. Let me just give him a solid. There was no pun intended. And and. Wow. So I so think about this the stars and had to align. If if if the brokerage doesn't give my. A hard time. He doesn't buy those tickets. I don't buy the ticket. I'm not there and Elton doesn't dedicate that song to me. And yet they all aligned, and I remember when you posted that it was the most amazing thing. I can't imagine how you felt. I can't I still can't. And I I'm not joking. I have it on a CD. I played at my Carl. Let me ask you this. Because I I've liked Elton John forever. I finally went to the first concert. Oh, you right. Is this? I got the feeling that he's serious about this being the end. Oh, definitely. Because a lot of a, you know, a lot of acts. Oh, we're on our farewell notice is to be the fair. A tour he will perform I know he's back at Rosemont in February. He even when this tour is over in two thousand twenty one he will continue to perform maybe residencies in Vegas or in New York. We'll play a couple of weeks at a time case. But in terms of the big world Tour World tours where he's on the road three months at a time that thing because he wants to spend time with these kids. So that giant tour kind of performances going, okay? You would still be able to see him, but you'll have to travel, right? He's not gonna. Yorktown Laura you're going to have to go see him. Well, it was it was wonderful. And I can see why you know, I could see why you've enjoyed the show for so long because I've enjoyed the music forever. I mean, this is a really out captain fantastic. Trek? Even makes a joke. You bought the album? Yes, the CD's the eight tracks sets. So it was it was a an unbelievable concert. I can't imagine the feeling. So how does your friend know to be recorded? Joe he was just recording. He was just he was recording the whole show on his phone. Yeah. And so he just you know, so I just had that audio. And then they sent me this video, which is amazing. And as I said, I know one of the guys in his band a couple of guys in his band, and after it happened I looked over there and even his guitar player. Who's been with them for forty years guy? Davey johnstone? He looked at me and said, wow. So that doesn't happen. Very and like I said it was so cool as he said my name correctly didn't even mispronounce everybody pronounces it. And I really felt when you hear that you know, that it was very heartfelt. And I think that he was gonna say a lot of friends here tonight. And then I think he just said, you know, what let me just give you this giant break. And so yeah, it was very cool. But then I thought back I think about these these different things that had to happen to come together for that to happen. It was crazy, but very relations on that.

"With your family physician. This is the Roe Conn show us we've got Brian Newnan here filling for row and Richard Roeper here. And we're going to talk about the Grinch. I have to say, though, you've got you read your review as well. And the sun ties because you did this really just amazing like Limerick style takeoff. Dr Seuss's only the way you did it to doctors. Heretofore found seventy Ryan Cumberbatch. Somehow, I thought Brian would appreciate this. I kind of worked in a dad joke where I got green eggs and ham. Also. It's beautiful. The trick for the two and I'll get my credit. My editors the credit at the sun times. And the syndicate editors, you know, there's always a chance are gonna go. That's really cute whereas the review, but what I did is I sent it just before deadline, and then I just kind of myself off the register. You liked it? So thanks for that. So let's talk about the Grinch guys. Now as everybody knows that they started off as a children's book from the great Dr Seuss that came out in one thousand nine hundred fifty four I want to say right around there became a huge huge. Maybe fifty seven fifty seven. According to your story, and as you know to this day is a perennial bestseller. And then about ten years later was the famous television special behalf, our special with the great Boris Karloff. As as Frank was, of course, Frankenstein's monster, and he's the Grinch, and then the, you know, the famous song, you're a mean one Mr. Grinch foul Granddad which to this day. I think disastrously right up there with Rudolph the red frosty and Charlie Brown Christmas. Like, those the original Grinch cartoon, there's something wrong with just. And that's the thing. It was about twenty four minutes with commercials half hour, and that's all the Grinch really needs to be the same way. So then in the year two thousand in the year two thousand the Ron Howard tried to do a live action version of the Grinch with Jim Carey, and it made a lot of money. But I didn't think it worked at all. I didn't like it and all every time because my wife and daughter watching every all I can think of is how much vacillation lean is on the length when the shoe Christine berets God. I suppose it pulled me out. Pulls me out every year. And you know, the cuteness of the residents of whoville. They look like crazy zombie freaks with the makeup when you put it on live actors, right? Some people. Yeah, they look like possum people. So now, the there's an animated version called the Grinch. That's coming into theaters this weekend Benedict Cumberbatch is the Grinch ferrall is the narrator. Oh because he's happy. Here's happy to do it and Rashida Jones plays. You know, the mom the mom who and it's the same story. But I, you know, here's the thing. Once again, we're reminded that it's really a half hour stories turned into an hour and a half and kind of jazz it up with, you know, the Grinch now has all kinds of doodads and cool gadgets to steal the toys and stuff and lots of slapstick action. The dog. He's got the little dog. Cutest can be Mexico is. But the other thing is they kind of from the very beginning. There's so much of the psychological stuff about how the poor grades was a lonely orphan really early on. So it's as if you know in the first five minutes of a Christmas. Carol Ebenezer Scrooge said, but if only I had love it when they learned to love that away. Is never really a mean mean grinches more just said sat Grinch and he just wants to take away Christmas because when he was an orphan Grange. So I think that MRs and then yeah, they just two stars like it because they stretched it to ninety minutes. And it's just it's it's the same story about that making films. You have to be at least so many minutes the enemy films at least eighty minutes eighty two an hour and a half their mostly they're usually shorter than live action. But it's still stretch too much in a lot of slapstick lot wacky chases where the sled guide loose. This is all computer. For me that that throat. Great. That's actually a great point. There's something about and, you know, all kinds of tricks and techniques are used, but a lot of animated films in some ways are really directed in shot like real films, and then there's all kinds of animated process when it's just made on a computer. It has that look. Yes, it feels cold and chilly. I mean, the animation is good. But you know, sometimes you see some of these films like frozen and some of these other even Toy Story, which is also computer animation. But they're so rich in theon mental. Like those ones you'd find at the dollar. You're absolutely. It's a very that's a very good point. And when you see on the big screen, you can see the difference between that and when we when we're gonna get frozen to or like earlier this year, the incredible that are just so rich and three dimensional even if they're not in three d so that's disappointing as well. Other things said it's probably gonna make seventy million dollars. And it is going to be listen kid has already seen the billboards, and the you know, the things on the there's a lotta giggles for five year olds in this movie. I mean, that's one thing you'd have to worry about it's not menacing at all. There's nothing really dark there, and it's silly enough. And you can get your you can get your name. On naptime. Pointing that they keep trying to do this. And it's like, you know, just do me do this at least and make sure you you watch you watch the animated special. All right. Richard good to see you reviews. Sponsored by architect. We've got judy's news coming up in two minutes. ESPN? Plus, how's your.

"They can't clear on the other side. I don't I never understood that, you know, you're not. Okay. So really all you're gonna do is blocked. The entire intersection. Do you really have to make that yellow light? And go up truly, you're only advancing maybe one car length. And is it really going to get you there? And there are moments when it's clear that you are going to be stuck in the million or section, and then I think psychologically, it has a ripple effect because in the people the cross traffic then goes, well, I'm getting to get the intersection. And so now everyone's in the intersex. Yes. And then decorates gridlock, and that has nothing. Nothing to do with the cyclist. No. So I mean, I think there's a lot of different things that we individually do that don't help. I think that structurally. We have a lot of problems when it comes to our expressways. And I think that the share bright programs are exacerbating that I think so too. That's a huge part of this this puzzle. Because if there are that many drivers out on the road just waiting for fairs, and it does seem as coincides when it starts to really flood at around three o'clock daylight today with a bears game because a lot of people only dry for the shared ride programs when there's going to be an event, right? When they know they can make more money. I was surprised the women that were on Brian Newnan show. They were talking about how they they Jack up the prices they have these surges. Yeah. And so like maybe a fair that like is is now four times as much as two hundred five dollars. They said the driver will get maybe fifty five dollars of that. So the surge isn't even going to the drivers which holy cow. So I'm a fan of using the reason I like shared rides is because of the ease of use with the apps bright, I like the ability to track. Track. The right, right. So you have a map, you know. Exactly. What? Route your driver took you can you can tell whether or not they went the wrong way. Or if they went out of the, you know, the pattern they should have gone with a cab ride. And again, my dad was a cabbie for fifty years. And it was a different profession that used to be that used to be a profession. Right. He would dress professionally black slacks and a white collared shirt, and he would help you with your suitcase, and you would open the door for women in CAD, the cab industry is no longer that. No. And I I can't I don't I can't get into caps age in the same way. And after going in in an Uber analyst. I mean, quite honestly. And again, that's just my opinion just from using both over the years. At least today nowadays, you lifts are cleaner. They're nicer it's door to door. I feel safer. I it just which is weird because we're just getting at some stranger's car. I know anyway. Took cabs for years and years anyway, this we're just wondering wondering about the traffic more in a moment on the show with Andrea darlas back..

Talk. To people in Nick Nick having been a director has had to sit, in and and audition people and it's. It's just a dehumanizing process and I know. Everybody's, gonna boo you chose yeah. I know it's not listen it's not like going out and, breaking rocks for a living but imagine walking into a room filled with strangers, and them judging you immediately whether. You're, good enough or not yeah and I've been on. Both sides of. The equation they both suck I always try to be when I was when I was when I would direct. Shows and a cast people I would try to make people as comfortable as possible because you wanna let first of all you want to let the people know. That you're rooting for him? You know what, I mean they came, here we want to see you You know what I mean it's an uncomfortable he's he's absolutely right it's the audition process is one of my least favorite. Things about about doing theater? So I actually. I was lucky though Dan I only audition twice for apart, because I you know. I ran the company for a while so I was like pre casting shows that was that was an easy thing all right can. We play the thing and? Then we'll we'll. Take a break we'll.
