Deborah Cohen on the Journalists Who Changed the News Media Irrevocably

"The people in your book are mostly forgotten as you know, but at their time they were household names. Can you tell me briefly about Dorothy Thompson, John Guthrie, HR knickerbocker, and Vincent Sheehan? Absolutely. So Dorothy Thompson amassed a string of firsts. She was the first American woman to run a major overseas news bureau. She was the first American foreign correspondent to be kicked out of Hitler's Germany in 1934, and she was the first woman political columnist to have a syndicated column, political column of her own. And in the late 30s, she's reaching 8 to 10 million readers with her thrice weekly columns. John Gunther makes his name with a book inside Europe published in 1936 that this taboo breaking behind the scenes account of the foibles of European leaders. So Hitler is given to crying Jags. He reports and has as Gunther puts it an Oedipus complex as big as a house, Mussolini is very superstitious, and so on and so forth. And this is a huge book of the time. It sells more than a million copies. It's not just a bestseller in the United States. It's also a bestseller across Europe. And it's a book that makes Gunther's name. HR knickerbocker comes from Texas. He's born in Texas. And he's the son of a southern methodist minister. He always carries a Bible in his suitcase, though he can swear in all of the major European languages. He's reportedly the highest paid foreign correspondent in the world, as I said, mostly working for William Randolph Hearst's international news service and among other accomplishments he becomes the bet noir of Hitler's propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels. And then there's Vincent Sheehan, so she and is reporter he was working for a number of different outlets among them the Chicago Tribune and he writes a book entitled personal history, published in 1935 at wins the first national book award for biography inaugural award. And this book really captured the zeitgeist of the era in a way that no other book does. What she and his writing about is his own quest as a journalist. To figure out the relationship between his life and world events, or as he puts it, the one life that he has in the millions of lives into which it's cast.

"chicago tribune" Discussed on WGN Radio

"Phone line I'm mister zorn how are you Hi John I'm very good How are you doing Good Eric's the author and editor of the picayune sentinel a newsletter that drops in Chicago on Thursdays The former Chicago Tribune columnist and sometimes columnist in the daily Herald you watched a lot of basketball over the weekend and wrote ten ideas for fixing the game If we go fast we can hit on the most important ones You ready Okay Which of the most important ones Your first paragraph is fascinating I'm just going to quote to you from you It said from 1910 to 1948 college rules prohibited coaches from even speaking to players during timeouts but now we're at the other extreme in the tendency is for coaches to hoard their timeouts and turn the final minute of a game into something resembling a huddle based sports such as football a completely agree with you Eric So what's the fix for that Well the fix is to allow only a quick time out like ten seconds to substitutions during the last minute Let the guys play The coach should be teaching as players how to play in the her players to in the last minute of the game And they shouldn't have to stop the action every X seconds for these long strategic Sessions Get the players tell them what to do during practice so that they know what to do at the end of the game It is excruciating how long that last minute of those days I know And we're all like oh that's the way it's going to be now And you hate to see it turned into a free throw shooting contest You had a brilliant idea I thought where if a player gets fouled he can shoot the two free throws say or they can give him the shot from where he was going to take the shot Nobody guarding him Something like that right Yeah what you want to do is you want to eliminate these strategic file I mean we all understand the kinds of foul or you're playing defense or too aggressive You filed somebody But it toward the end of the game There are all these and also if you've got somebody who's in a breakaway layup and they file someone to try to get them so they can't get the shot It seems to me that fairness would dictate the option If you have the free throws if you want but since we followed you in shooting we're going to let you shoot the ball uncontested from where you were found And I think that would you know I do have this problem at the end of the game The other thing that I think is really annoying at the end of the game is when teams continue to follow and they're deliberate fouls And in basketball an intentional foul is supposed to be a technical foul But they never call that at the end of the game They just let you deliberately follow somebody And again that just slows down the action It's not basketball anymore It's just it becomes a free throw shooting Yeah So it's like something at a state fair where you're trying to win this stuff down or something But we say the penalty for not being a good foul shooter is that you then your miss your free throws So it becomes strategic that way And the sort of the chorus of people is well then learn to shoot free throws but maybe we're saying the wrong thing I like your idea If I'm going in for a lab maybe I can't shoot free throws but guess what I'm making a layup now Why does that have to become a free throw shooting contest Give me my layup If I miss the layup fine if I miss the dunk fine you had this suggestion too Disallow mercy timeout request What are you talking about there Well this is a real pet peeve of mine which is say you're cracked in the corner right On a press And the player will turn to the rapid call timeout when he's in trouble And I think anytime you call time out when you're in trouble again it goes against just the entire spirit of the game A quarterback when he's being rushed by aggressive mind factor can't turn to the ref and go time out and time out My blockers didn't work And so you see players like dive on the floor for a loose ball grabbing call timeout And I think the rollout of me you can call timeout but not under duress And there was a rule in 2006 the NCAA got rid of the rule Remember when players would jump for a ball and they flying out of bounds they'd catch the ball or they landed they would they would turn a call time out Well the NCAA got rid of that for the same reason they should get rid of these emergency timeouts The ref should say you called time out to get yourself out of trouble and that's not what timeouts are for You will prohibit fall between free throws What's the falder all you're worried about Well you know it's when a player shoots a free throw in an all his teammates have to come and slap hands and whether he or she makes it or Mississippi Slap them on the butt and talk to them and just like give the ball once you get the ball to pre coal and no one should be able to allow it to enter that circle into your dumb shooting approved routes It takes time it's ridiculous It's one of these things that slows the game down And the basketball is a beautiful wonderful game to watch but you have to have to have free throws I understand that for to prevent the turning into a run rate Okay boomer That one I never understood like a nervous tick that all teams have adopted And if you don't do it it's like everybody helping a fallen player off the floor then it looks like bag sportsmanship So everybody knows they have to go through the drill You don't want to be the team that doesn't reach out to help your teammate or pat him on the back after even a missed free throw but I agree with you that that slows the game and seems to be utterly unnecessary talk to me about this Escalating number of extra free throws when and how would that come into play Well the idea is that falling out of a game is an unusual concept You want to keep that concept of penalizing the team when a certain player is too aggressive But rather than removing the player from the game make it a strategic decision by the coach Do you leave that player in because every foul that a player commits over the fallout limits say it's 5 and college basketball So on the 6th vowel that that player commits you give an extra free throw Or perhaps a technical foul for that So you can keep your star player in after he or she's filed out but they become a liability after they become a potential liability So it's sort of a strategic decision Because a following I oftentimes you know I one of the things this is a broader question but I think the officiating in basketball is bizarre I mean they'll call traveling on a little shuffle step out of the circle When someone is driving in from lamp during the Euro step they're taking like three big steps into the lamp and they're not calling traveling there And the bumping and the slapping and the punching and everything that goes on underneath the basket they sometimes call it they sometimes don't But it's the hardest sport to officiate There's two other things you suggested I'll pause here And one of them one of them made me laugh out loud but Eric these are created and I think some of these are actually very doable suggestions on how to improve the game because it does need some tweaking We'll pick it up here in a minute and then move on to other topics as well.

Two pharmacists fired after one allegedly took COVID-19 vaccines home, mixed doses at DMH in Illinois

"Indicator. We're a couple of pharmacists have been fired. The story comes from the Chicago Tribune and the reporting of Lisa Shankar, who joins us now, Lisa, welcome back. Thank you s Oh, tell me about what What's going on here in Decatur? Sure. So, um, we foid my colleague Jomar. Avoid a emails from the Illinois Department of Public Health. Freedom of Information Act. You filed? Yeah, thank you and looking asking for anything that they had received having to do with complaints about how vaccines have been administered and there were emails between Memorial health system, which is hospital Decatur and State Health Department because apparently to pharmacists employed by memorial health system were fired after one of them took doses home to her family members and incorrectly or inappropriately mixed doses of the vaccine. On a day when 300 of their health care workers were vaccinated, let's take the first one first. Um the the pharmacist has not been identified. Right. The emails did not include names in the health system that they couldn't tell us names. She was fired because the health system said what? She took vials home to her family. How what did she do? Sure, the health system. Apparently, What happened is she took a dose is home to her family members, According to these emails, the health system said that she took two doses and her family members were not people who would have been eligible for the vaccine. At that time. We know how many people were talking about. Um, health systems that she took two doses. Doses. Okay. And then the other situation and I didn't really understand this. Um, what defense was that? You explained it in the peace but that they were mixing doses from vials. Explain that for me. Sure, so if each let's say each vial of a fight of five your vaccine contains like six doses. After the pharmacist takes the six doses out of the vile there still might be a little bit left at the bottom of the pile. And so what This farm sis did was take that little bit that was left at the bottom of the vile and combine it with leftovers from other vials. Um, which to me? It sounds like a great idea. Yeah, right, And they're actually has the controversy about that, in some places about you know, is that a good way to get more vaccine? But the FDA said that that should not be done that That's a bad idea. Because it is. The sexy doesn't contain preservatives. So if you're mixing Vaccine from different vials. It could lead contamination issues. That's because the vaccine was taken out of one vial introduced to the Needle and the syringe and then reintroduced to another violence that what is that worthy infection? Which, Because it's more like Let's say you have a tiny bit of it left over at the bottom of a few different vials. And then you combine that little bit from the few different vials to create one new dose. Okay? And and that's the same pharmacist who was You took two doses home to her family, right? Okay, so two pharmacists were fired. What did the other one do? We don't know. We know it had to do with with this incident, but the health system, um, would not say how this other pharmacist was involved, so maybe covering it up or something like that. Yeah, We just We don't know you. I'll just

Mayor Lori Lightfoot Provides Update On Chicago's Coronavirus Vaccine Rollout

"Black and Hispanic Americans are about twice as likely to die from covert 19 is white Americans, yet they have been vaccinated. At much lower rates across the country that in Chicago, about half of the city's vaccinations are for people of color. The mayor of Chicago, of course, is Lori Lightfoot, and she joins us now more like for thanks so much for being with us. Good morning, Scott. A pleasure to be with you early in the vaccine roll out less than 20% of vaccine doses went to Chicago. Once of color. Now, that's half. What did Chicago do? That can make a difference. Can it be done in other places? Well, we work extremely hard to overcome. Vaccine hasn't see in communities of color protect particularly black and like flat necks, and really that hard work began at the very beginning of the pandemic. We were seeing the disproportion impact on communities of color, this horrible virus. We went to work in those communities, which trusted partners. And I think those that hard work over time is starting to bear fruit in the significant off take to go from, you know the low teens. Of uptake in the early days of the vaccine program to now over 50% is remarkable turnaround, and it's really do that the hard work of so many people across our city certainly led by city government, But really, our partners in the neighborhoods deserve the credit because they recognize this life saving Vaccine has to go to those people that are most in need. And in our city That means communities of color. But what's the messaging in this Because, of course, you know, a lot of the hesitancy is historic, based on things that, obviously well, what's the message Inky were able to convince you there's there's no secret sauce, and it's really ah lot of diligence, one on one conversation and getting people who are trusted. Community partners in those neighborhoods who recognizable literally. We've gone door to door for months now to get people educated. Provide them with information really do a lot of myth busting and you've just got a Put in the hard work to overcome their fears. And I think as people have seen people that they recognize whether it's a mayor of color as I am or their neighbors who are getting the vaccine without adverse consequences. It's bringing people who are really standing on the sidelines into the field of play and saying, all right I'll do this. I think it's safe. Have to ask you Mayor Lightfoot, a zoo, you know. Chicago Tribune reported this week that the city spent more than $280 million nearly 60% of the discretionary spending money it got under the Caress Coronavirus relief package. On CPD, the Chicago police Department. Is that true? And what do you say? OK, I'm going to quote Alderman less Fatah. The first ward, who says that money should have been sent on spent on housing assistance in small businesses, not the police. Well, we spent Tens of millions of dollars on a significant number of community service and social service programs. As you know, Scott when the tears package Came from Congress. It came through specific line items and grants for programs like homelessness, community health, um, violence prevention and other things. Those were designated dollars where there was really no flexibility whatsoever and how that money was spent, and we spent it accordingly. There were some money, however, that the federal government gave to cities like Chicago to address the unprecedented need to respond to covert 19. And yes, we spent money on a range of first responder activities because they were at the front lines in many instances, particularly in the early days of our covert 19 response. So the criticism that somehow we should have taken a pass on free money from the federal government that came to address unprecedented and unbudgeted needs that were in our city just doesn't make any sense. I make no apologies for the fact that we took advantage of the opportunities that the federal gave government gave us rather than passing on. Was expensive to our taxpayers, so that the the choices do we actually take advantage of the re rope the money that has given us two by the federal government and save Burden on our taxpayers, or do we just pass along the cost to the taxpayers? I understand with our taxpayers every single day and do everything that I can to save them from any further burden, And that's exactly what we did in Chicago. Thanks so much my pleasure.

LF you'll hit the button and all hit mine and We're gonna miss you Fill the tell lots of nice text messages coming in about you right now. Oh, that's nice. Yeah, I'm kind of surprised to be honest with you. So what's the best meal you've had? What's the worst restaurant experience you've had in Chicago? The rest one. And I can say this because the restaurant is long, long gone. Um There was at 500 North LaSalle Street, a restaurant that was known as Michael Jordan's restaurant on has no connection whatsoever to easy. Michael Jordan's restaurant on Michigan Avenue today and no connection whatsoever with the Michael Jordan Steakhouse in Oak Brook. Different owners different everything, but at the time. It was the first Michael Jordan's restaurant and it was a total tourist trap. And I was I was there for for dinner and One of us two of us having dinner and one of us ordered the scallops think probably me and Minute. Just a few seconds for the dish arrived. All of a sudden I smelled something really just the the aroma of spoiled fish or spoiled seafood. And here's this guy walking to me and I'm saying I'll please don't let this be my scouts and he put this thing down in front of me. And I said You're kidding, Right? This is e. Comptel. It's spoiled right now right now, and he was You want something else? You have anything not spoiled. I don't know what it was, like You said the non spoiled part of the menu, right, you know, but because it had Michael Jordan's name on it. It was it was pretty much pretty much review proof and saying, sitting, in fact, that first a second graph of my review, I said, I don't like Michael Jordan's restaurant, and I don't think it matters. Yeah, right right, because they're from out of town or there. Hey, Michael Jordan Boom, Right And then you know, then it all it all it all came tumbling down, actually, for other reasons than in the restaurant quality itself. But that was That was That was terrible money because I think did cousin Harry Carey's did a nice job. I thought that you did excellent job. Harry Harry has been a solid performer from the very first day it opened. It had smart restaurant people behind. It still does, And it just You know, it just works. What's the best restaurant experience you've had in Chicago? I've had. I've had so many. It's such that is a really tough one. But I think I will point to my first. Dinner at a restaurant called Trio. Which was up in Evanston, and the chef team at the time was Rick Tramonto in Gale Gand. And the level of food and the end the creativity. It was all very, very, very, very modern, A No. One of the first restaurants in Chicago to get creative just with the actual dishes and the serve where the things they Brought things out on on dit was it was astonishing. And I say that with all due deference to all the tremendous meals I've had at Charlie Trotter's way back in the day and at Libya and literal say and and Everest. I mean, they're they're all Outstanding in their own, right. But since you put me on the spot, and I've had three seconds to think about it I'm gonna go with I'm gonna go with trio. Well, I figured maybe that'd be part of your column. I don't know what you're gonna say Friday. You don't have to devote it all to me and our conversations here. All right. We're gonna have to rewrite that. Okay. What General are you putting on paper today? Um, just talking about some of the greats that I've been privileged, uh to, uh, to observe and to chronicle and some hopefully funny wanted to funny anecdotes. And, um Just a good bye. I don't want to linger over this. This is not gonna be, uh, you know, 1200 or read I'm gonna keep it short and hopefully sweet. Well, I'm sorry here. Here's I'm set for a number of reasons, but I'm happy for you because you deserve a break. I know you love that grand kid and I know that you've been anxious about going to restaurants since March, and that's what just makes me sad is that I hate to see you go out. Under these circumstances I would rather have Had a year of fun filled the Tell. Insightful, sometimes funny reviews. Remember, you used to come on and you talk about the food. Then I'd ask you what the hell that was. And then we kind of go through the cocktail menu and what your experience was like, And we haven't done that for a while. And I'm sorry for you that this is how you're going out. Right there ever actually, one review since, uh Since March. And so, yeah, it's I I envision some some gorgeous sunset. You know, as I surveyed the entire Chicago dining scene and would say to someone some satisfaction, Yes, My work here is done, you know, but it's ludicrous because there's always There's always more work. There's always something new. There's always something exciting, especially in a town like this. If I had been doing this job in another city, Yeah, maybe it wouldn't be. But I've come. I've made peace with the fact that There was always some new place that I would want to stick around for, and then I would never. I've never leave and I know that's not possible. Let me just read a few quick text 2847. We will miss you fill, 312 says, I hopeful will write a book about the evolution of restaurants. Over the last 40 years. I would definitely buy that and 2 to 4 said Phil should host dinner parties that popular restaurants and speak about the menus into the chefs is people enjoy. Dining over the food once they covered it, I would pay for that says 2 to 4. All right, How about a book? How about a hosting dinner parties for Well, I could start on the book, I suppose. But the dinner parties will have to wait to Linda or dining is permitted, but maybe maybe come the summer time. All right, Phil. Well, yeah, I'll bet that like Blair came in and Howard Reich and the rest of y'all every now and then we're gonna pick up a magazine or some feature piece in the Tribune and there will be your by line. I don't suppose you've written your last word in Chicago, right? No, no, it's nothing else. I'll probably Scrawling them on pieces of paper, wrapping them in bricks and going into people's windows. But I will continue writing the one way or another..

"Right now is Gregory Pratt from your Chicago Tribune. You You might know the name because the mayor has invoked it before he has been covering the engine at young case. Where Chicago Tribune for quite a while, and the latest in this story is now the emails that were exchanged within the office Staff and Mayor Lightfoot were released late yesterday. Hey, Gregory, how are you? You know, not bad. Thank you very much for jumping on the phone. We appreciate it. What is your take on first glance it seeing all of these emails that how the mayor's reaction was and how honest she was being You know, we know she said it first. I just learned of this when I saw CBS to do a report on it. Then she admitted I was incorrect. She she claimed that you know there's a lot going on, and I was mistaken and saying I didn't know about it. I didn't know about it vaguely. The emails came out and she's somewhat apologized for her tone in them. What is your overall taken? What we're hearing so far? Well, in fairness to her. Ah, lot has happened between between got those emails and when she said she didn't remember it. So, um, I understand why people don't necessarily believe that you've forgotten about it. But, um, you know, from a pandemic to the strike to the budget to civil unrest. Um, you know, that is not the craziest thing of politician has ever said. But at the time what the email do show is that at the time she got it in November, 2019. She immediately understood how bad it was because she asked to get on the phone with them. She got an email that said, Hey, there's a pretty bad raid. We have some here's the information, and it said that the woman had been miss Young had been handcuffed naked for 40 minutes, and there was the wrong house. And she said, I have a lot of questions about this one. Lets talk in 10 minutes. And if you can imagine, you know, it's not. It's not, you know for the mayor to want to talk within 10 minutes of sending an email Means that she understood pretty quickly how seriously Awas Yeah, You know, it's interesting. It's It's a shame. We don't know what the conversation was like, because the mayor's apologies or more about the emails and what we do know, we know that she requested a phone call in 10 minutes. We know that I believe it was the next day that she was emailing and they talked about Listen, we need to. We need to increase the training. We need to increase all these things. We can't be taking hits like this. It sounds like she's apologizing that she cared more about the reforms than about this particular case. Is it possible that she just never really asked a lot of questions about this case that this was just like, Well, wasn't under my watch. That was before I was mayor. But what I want to know is what we're doing now to make sure this type of thing doesn't happen again. Sure, I think that's possible and I think in fairness to the mirror, she didn't seem to understand that this was bad and that the Rays were a problem because she focused on the policy and what she has said in her statement yesterday. Accompanying this is that she regrets not having done more to check in on this young And you know, so it's kind of a mixed bag there for her politically and so far as you know, she could be criticized for you. Don't do enough. He didn't care enough. You didn't follow up enough. But she did follow up on policy. She did follow up on policy. And where are we on policy? So this is over a year ago? Um where are we are things changing? Is this type of things still happening or reforms being put in place that will help avoid this type of thing from happening again. Well, I do know that CPD has, um, has put in policy is to try to make it work to try to make raids. Better to make it better to try to make it better to them. Um To try to make it. Harder for bed rates to happen and to make it harder to increase steps so that there's Better trained, better equipped to take on a raid and be better trained and equipped and prepared to go to the right place and things of that sort. Whether it's working better not probably depends on who you're talking to, You know, it's ah. I think I think the CBS news investigation has shown that there are still problems. I do think that the city um I think the city is genuinely working on it, but I don't think it's ah It's fixed now. You know this is the city Police Department has a tremendous amount of problems at this time, and I'm sure this is still one of them. In other discussions I've had on this show about this over the last couple of weeks. There were questions about whether Mark Flessner, who resigned, the law department's top attorney resigned in a way that said, Listen, I'm gonna resign. But, you know, people knew what was going on here might take from what I read at the time was maybe they were making decisions and weren't informing the mayor. They knew they had to avoid this becoming something the mayor had to deal with. And that's how the mayor reacted. Others feel that the mayor knew absolutely what was going on. And then he becomes a fall guy. As far as the video's not being released the quote unquote cover up of it. If you will, at least delaying as long as possible, releasing information trying to get us far away from it as they could. What is the take on Mark Flessner and what his role was or what the role of the mayor was. What she really knew and how she was handling any of this. So the mayor has been adamant that she did not know that that's the city law Department was going to go to court and say, Don't let them publish this video and sanction Miss Young and they did. In fact, after sanction, Miss Young, you know, they later amended its delectation the lawyer, but they claim they never meant to sanction Miss Young, but they did say sanction the plaintiff. They did go after CBS. In the Mirror has been adamant that she didn't know about that. I think it's um and you know, I don't have anything to the contrary. I know people have their suspicions. Um, you know, I think you have the take her at her word but continue investigating which, Of course, we are, whether or not what the law department told the mayor's office because logically You would think that somebody over there would have the common sense to understand that trying to prevent a news broadcast is going to be a national story. I don't I can offer help in my head. Think of one politician who has gone to court in that way, and that's Richard Nixon, clearly somebody at the end, and that's a case the Pentagon papers that's taught in constitutional law classes. So you would think that the that What department would be smart enough to understand that this is a problem and you need buy in from the mayor's office Now, obviously, she fired him and she fired..

Oh, well, thank you for asking Many moons ago, I grew up in the northeastern most points of Ohio, A little tiny town called Connie in Ohio. And I had three brothers. So I didn't realize I was a girl until I was talking about 15. I think, but we got to play outside all day and forests and the creeks and I became a real science nerd when I was a little person. Um And you know that carried with me through college and I became high school biology teacher. Moved to Chicago in the middle of the school year. And there wasn't really much to do to take full time job then. So I saw a job in the Chicago Tribune Advertising for a science editor. I did not know what that was, but I went in and implied for it. And it was one of the luckiest professional days of my life. They hired me on the spot and the Cinderella story. There is 13 years later. It's president of the company. Oh, my goodness. Oh, well, so beautiful. You took it. You kind of took a turn. We went from academia Tonto kind of another. Another side of it, right? Yeah, when I got into publishing, and I loved it because I actually could sit on both sides of the desk. I was creative person coming up with these great science programs for kids, but I also then became an executive who is making the financial decisions about them to say is, it's the right thing to do. And after that I took another pivot, which is what kids in future gonna have to do. If we keep changing and growing.

Most important things we can we can teach our Children and teach people how to nurture. Absolutely. It's so powerful. You know, it brings up the whole subject of how valuable our family members are. Our grandparent's great grand parents. And sometimes kids can be really surprised on how wise and also smart, their grand parents are. Probably. Yeah, Yeah, And I love what you said about to your point of, you know, we have these conversations, but sometimes they're just mechanical and, you know, did you brush your teeth? Did you? Are you ready for bed? Did you do your homework, But there are, um, philosophical ideas and, um and, uh, No legacy type of practices that we do in our families. And when do we really have the time to sit down and dig into that type of thing? So you you have touched on something so important?

"They're having a very, very hard time getting into school or any other kind of physical or even mental activity there. Just not moving. No, there's a study in the Chicago Tribune. I'm sure you saw it. It was actually a Loyola University School of head researcher was part of it, And they surveyed more than 2000 full time teachers across like a bunch of states, and they found that That when they have the teachers were having to handle a lot of mental wellness issues that were meant much more than they ever did before and that. Ah 55% of them said they were handling them individually like never before. And that the's things were all on the rise. Everything from kids spending screen time to having migraines and even vision impairment issues to the mental health issues about just not working for him what you're talking about. And the teachers say that they're having to learn, you know, on the fly, even though they're used to dealing with kids, you know how to kind of handle the mental health and an even bigger way.

To try to break through and really find out in the old days of saying, how was school it So it's a little different now that you got you got to dig in a little bit and to your point. I actually have teachers in my caseload now where that's never happened before, for exactly the same reasons that you're citing that their workload is increased significantly, including partly taking over my job, but To your question off what parents, Khun Dio and what they can ask. Mostly what I'm encouraging parents to do is ask open ended questions do a lot of listening because one thing we know for sure is we've never been in our kid's shoes so we might resume. We understand what it's like for them physically, emotionally or academically or otherwise. But we really don't we've never been here. And the only way to really understand whether your child seventh grade or a sophomore in college, the only way to really get it is to ask him. What is this like a date today? What is this life and not just talk them out of how they feel, But listen, now they feel and then you can start to problems talk about like, OK, So if you are bored all day long, how can we break up the day?

I actually heard Joe Rogan discussed this or at least quoted on this since I heard it quoted on this That the city's air so large, how could anyone mayor possibly handle them? It's just unmanageable concept. Maybe, indeed it is. Which I found interesting because I go through my own litany of things that I believe in one of things that I believe in. And I you You don't usually use this expression. I believe in a return to the one room schoolhouse Now, I don't actually believe in the one room schoolhouse, but rather I believe that the Department of Education should be eradicated. And that education should be not only state driven, but it should be municipality driven. And let them engage best practices amongst themselves. I don't think that we have gotten as a nation a value from the Department of Education where we send our dollars and then they hijack us and hold us hostage. I should say on giving us those dollars back as long as we are fulfilling certain levels of requirements that Might not be of any value whatsoever. You take, for example, the 16 19 project this lie from The New York Times. Well, you've got school district's utilizing the 16 19 project, which is, of course, bunk, saying that the United States was founded because of slavery and the idea of keeping slavery going and bring in the those slave ships. But of course you want to listen to historians. They will tell you. That's not the case at all. At all. And that Hannah Jones call Hannah Jones just lied. Well now in in a series of tweets, she has said, I've always said that the 16 19 project is not a history. It is a work of journalism that explicitly seeks to challenge the national narrative and therefore the national memory. Oh, okay. You lied, You lied has nothing to do with history. What you want to do or change the facts of the founding of the nation? Hold your Lord. Oh, Lord. Oh, Lord. Get back. Jon Katz. What John Kass do wrong. He is under fire from his coworkers. For invoking what they call an anti Semitic conspiracy theory involving billionaire George Soros. Why in the bloody did he say the column? Something grows in the big city is run by Democrats, an overwhelming sense of lawlessness. And what is the story Engage these Democratic city's air. Also where left wing billionaire George Soros has spent millions of dollars to elect liberal Social justice warriors is prosecutors here makes the justice system in urban America flying under the radar. So the argument is flying under the radar. Is this idea of? You know the secret hand the silent hand going about in doing things? That's what Ilhan Omar was referring to when she said that people support in Congress support Israel because it's all about the Benjamins that they're being paid off to do it. Well, in this case, there's nothing secret here. John Cast is discussing George Soros. Do I believe that George Soros is the boogeyman that that other people Say that he is Yes, Yes, I d'oh. But the idea that he's doing this on his own is, I think pretty on right. Everything's George Soros his fault. What if and and I'm spit balling here? What if George Soros it's not all his money is such a genius? What if it's it's Ah, Maybe he's just the conduit. This is actually a theory of my father. And I gotta admit of all he has some good ones that he has some ones where I I just remind myself he's my dad of this one is This one is interesting. What if he's nothing more than the conduit? How many people would like to see America. Fail. And you certainly see Soros working aggressively through organizations to try and win attorneys general races and send a state races and things and things like that. So when when you see these things I'll ask yourself what's his plan? And what are the plans? People aligned with him? And does he really used his own money or other people giving him money to use? And I think there are a lot of questions. I don't think noting that makes you an anti Semite is a matter of fact. I would say that the people at the Chicago Tribune who are upset By this because supposedly letter from the Chicago Tribune Guild, signed by nine members of the executive board have called in the newspaper and cast to apologize for the indefensible invocation of the source tropes. I'm sorry. I don't think they're no No, no, no. No. No mm nn nn nn nn No no, I don't think you have it. I think anti Semitism Israel I don't think everywhere you look is anti Semitism. When a swastika is painted or a spray painted onto a stop sign. I don't think that's anti Semitism. I think it's more honest. There's a difference between the two things. Did not notice..

"Yet again Big newspaper chain that included the Chicago Tribune being taken over by yet another hedge fund, and what those guys do is they just squeeze every single dime out of a paper until it's dead, and then they move on to the next thing. Um, And that's not good. If you live in Chicago, That's not good. If you live in one of the many, many towns that have papers that a part of this chain and it's not good if you've got no. 50 60 $70,000 in student debt and a wonderful brand new, sparkly journalism degree And you can't get a job. Yeah, it's a sad It's a sad fact. For many people who are graduating school with all that debt, regardless of their degrees, But certainly this is an industry that really is played out. Just as you say in stark terms. I want to ask you before I just before we have to move on. I want to ask you because you are our media guy. Did you see the president speaking to Chris Wallace? Did you see that whole back and forth? I do. Watch the whole thing. Yeah. What? What were you What were your thoughts and then I'll, um I did a great job. I thought he came very, very prepared so that he was ready to hit back on some of these trump ISMs. With actual facts and figures. Uh and I think he shot the president down a lot. Now there are other people who will say to you. Yeah, but Chris Wallace is kind of a fig leaf for the rest of Fox News or he's the one good man there who's able to do a tough interview with with Trump. Everybody else is a sink of fans. I don't disagree with that. But I thought that Chris Wallace did a remarkable job. I want to say one thing about Trump. And it strikes me on some level once in a while, but it really strikes me as I watched the Wallace interview. He is amazing at just moving forward. I mean, rhetorically moving forward. He's unflappable. I mean, there is a There is something to that. It's like a parlor trick or something I've never seen When you wonder. You know, you want to see a good con man. Just nothing throws him off his stride, and he serves up falsehoods like a short order Chef. It's unbelievable. I I had to watch in wonder I really did. And I went and and that's an effective way of communicating. No, he's amazing. He has his talking points and you're right, Marc. He finds a way to work them into everything. One quick point. So, Chris Wallace says. Look, Testing is up 37%. But but cases run 197%. So it's not just that we're testing Mohr and he's trapped now, right? This is the figures won't don't lie to him. So he pivots and says, Yeah, well, you know, China brought it here and a lot of those new cases of young people who just have the sniffles. Amazing. Right, right, And that's what I'm talking about. Another another politician would have been completely thrown off by those numbers that that Wallace throughout Trump's not Trump. Remarkable. He's Joe for rule of the latest two columns in the hill. I will post it to my Twitter feed the raging Culture war inside America's newsrooms. Thanks, Joe guys. He's really such a smart cat really talking to him. All right? We got that Wallace interview and the president looks really uncomfortable at times. Yeah, well, and it was 100 degrees out. He wanted to do the interview outdoors, which I get. He doesn't want to get the The cove. But We'll play some clips. If you are just joining us. We haven't really spent a lot of time yet on that. We'll play some clips. I also have a thought or two, and I think they're decent takes on this. I'd love to at least share them with you. Maybe you have your own take on it. We always want to hear those two for 15 80 88 10 Because of Trump is he's got a death grip on certain things that people don't care about anymore. And and I I think he Has lost himself in this bubble. Of Fox News. He watches that all morning Then he comes downstairs and he has these AIDS who have clipped out all the positive clippings. They can. You know, he literally has given this portfolio of positive stuff every day. And he's surrounded himself by these loyalists who do just that. And just, you know, tell him how great everything is even to the point of reworking certain statistics, these with grim statistics on earth. About covert 19 in this country. And so when he hits that interview with Chris Wallace, he is carrying that all with him now that serves his as I say, sort of rhetorical magic trick that he does where he just keeps on moving forward. But the realities about what Americans care about are lost because he's lost touch with them. He's lost track of that. All right, We continue and I say I'll check Social media next. There's some reaction to stuff so we'll get to that as well. Mark Thompson kgo Aten To say the stock.

Action coming up in our number three, but the JD as you know, the president of the United States did an interview with Chris Wallace over the weekend. It aired yesterday. And I've always had some respect for Chris Wallace. I think he's pretty good at what he does. I think he's fair for Fox News, you know, And in this day and age in journalism, I think he's probably about his fares. You, Khun, get And the interview and always with that, with Donald Trump for for lack of a better term, stunning I guess you could say, I guess I wouldn't be surprised with some of the things that Donald Trump has said in this interview. So we're going to go over it step by step. But, of course, a big topic and the topic that Chris Wallace started with. Was the Corona virus, and, uh, Donald Trump immediately got upset at the start of the interview when Wallace pointed out That the United States has the seventh highest covert mortality rate in the world and accused him of saying We had the worst rate in the world, which he never said have a listen to this. I think it's the opposite. I think we have one of the lowest mortality rate way had 900 Gats on a single day. We will take this week ready. You get me the mortality rate. Caylee's right here. I heard we have one of the lowest maybe the lowest mortality rate anywhere in the world. You have the numbers. Because I heard we had the best mortality rate, says.

"The tell is the best food critic at the Chicago Tribune you do have a lot of those over there don't you feel hundreds yep but people actually do and you bring him in well let's see I've always read you on Wednesdays I have not looked at the paper dish in the last couple of weeks are you well I do in a way I haven't been doing a whole lot of reviewing lately and I've been I've been off the last the last week and a half so yeah I think yesterday the day before I had a front page story which was the print version of a of a story that had run a line the previous week about some of the some of the restaurants that were in the planning stages prior to the accord would shut down and now trying to figure out when they will open we're talking to the guy off the air that runs would which isn't actually too far from where I live and the question is how do we arrange the seating hello can we make a profit if we do it that way I presume that's kind of weird you been investigating lately huh yeah I mean the the the the six feet apart for tables which was the expected protocol although did the city hasn't officially said that yes the that that you know that that extends in all directions so that's a lot of that'll that's a lot of open space that's cool isn't it right it's not just the end to end it side to side natural right yeah six feet apart is six feet apart which means for every fifty six something something square feet you get one table well some of these places are your elbow to elbow literally elbow to elbow some of the places that have this communal tables and you'll just sit in a row that's not an uncommon feature these days how does a restaurant in that case turn a profit that that's that's that's the that's the million dollar question the the short answer is it can't be done the longer answer is the they're just gonna have to buckle down until until it was absent a absent a cure or a proven treatment which is she if yeah you can get the divider virus but they can give you this and then you'll be better in three or four days now absent that the the the idea of communal tables is gone the idea of the phase is gone salad bars gone forget about it Fuddruckers sorry no not for occurs although they I think they do have one and that is the name of a restaurant why is it letting it all done but there might be one left well I was listening to a conversation with restaurateur Luke do you see it of RJ grunts RJ grunts how did you know I was thinking yeah this is the city's the fit I think if not the city's first salad bar ever got to be one of the first I was there at Christmas time you know we went over and saw the zoo lights and all of that just had so much fun but boy if ever there was an opportunity to sit next to people and share us that you know of an amount of food well that's the place right eleven Arizona restaurants such as would you with the one you brought up a moment ago pretty narrow spaces so I did there's barely enough space in the entire restaurant to have a table on one into the wall table on the other end of the wall and I'll be your six weeks and then you can go backwards with the table every more every additional six feet and that that is a lot of tables someone has to Burton who I was thinking of RJ grunts when I said phone records thank you Tony a salad bar salad bar yeah that's like clairvoyance that's pretty you guys know that yeah that's what it is it's worse than that it's like you're being married right okay change others what's or I want so when she was talking to somebody and he said look it's not just like okay open the twenty five percent to make twenty five percent of the money he said because the you have somebody that's doing the steak and then you have somebody in the in the cooking area I don't know if you call in the kitchen but we're they're simply the salad and somebody else is doing the potatoes rolls there's all of these different alignments in so if if you want to open a restaurant you have to hire all of those people for all of those stations but you don't have enough customers to justify it the idea is simple cut the staff in half the guy that cooks the steak is going to run over and toss up a salad and then go get a baked potato those are all different jobs the different people do so we're going to serve one meal you need all of those people and you can't justify that with twenty five percent capacity which is what some of them will have to operate under right there's there's there's a there's there's a history of it as restaurants are born in that the the type of restaurant is defined by the diet by its space famous example was Moore's Morton's steakhouse Ronnie Martin first opened in the lower levels below street level spot underneath his original Arnie's restaurant he looked at it and what can I do I don't have this this tiny kitchen I can't do that anything any room for broiler so that's why he went with steaks and Lancelot realistic people they take over restaurant space they decide what their menu is going to be based on what is a cool way out for the right to spur the kitchen can produce and I think that's gonna happen that's gonna have be reverse engineered by a lot of restaurants there say okay can we afford a cold salad line here anymore and the answer might be no what I can do these things or we're gonna have to do a lot of it or all of it in the separate prep area and it's just going to have to be held and we can bring it out as needed let us not paying you said that they were going to put a surcharge for the additional PP expenses that they're going to run into and that's for a takeout and you know contactless curbside delivery yeah bill but you think about that as long as it is fairly labeled and the customer knows upfront what it's going to be that's not a surprise after the subtotal I suppose we'll see what the market says but I think that's I think that's a reasonable thing to do I do too I think breaking out the charges lets people know look the reason that your bills will hire is here and this is exactly how much more higher your bill is going to be him and if they they'll know the and the guy I I say that but ultimately the the public will decide whether they're willing to pay that a lot of this precedent for that in that the number of years ago San Francisco started the restaurant start adding a set percentage that would pay for a healthcare for its employees which had been mandated by the city so they said okay here's we have a four percent added while I made up that four percent number or mobile or is it might be a might be lower and this is what this is the actual thing but you can get out of it was they also blame the language on the on the on the check said if you object to this let us know we'll take it off my guess what then that's a lettuce entertain you's doing too with this current version of it yeah but that's for the you know covert world we go back into the restaurant's if for a while they just said it's getting back on our feet everything's going to be a little more expensive and we're still not at a hundred percent capacity put it right away I'm just ready to I think we should all be ready to maybe not willing to but ready to have to pay more for food and beverage when you go back in the restaurants in a way industry people have been warning this for some time the the the the the they find the the business model of of restaurants has been working on razor thin margins all long and restaurants have been afraid to raise food prices to what they probably should be because they know a competitor will just hold the line and take all the business restaurants will have that opportunity anymore they're going to have to raise prices if they're going to have to either justify being in business at all and if the public accepts that this might be the cost at which American consumers realize what what order prepared meals really works and what's what's within them and they might be able have but our president might have be able have more realistic price Joe just means higher pricing and the the the double whammy for restaurants is they're gonna have to be doing that one in the midst of a recession Phil tells restaurant critic at the Chicago Tribune Phil are you hearing much more about the difficulty of attracting the restaurant employees back because they're getting six hundred dollars more to stay home some of them will lose money if they go back to work is that still a conversation out there I don't it's eight here it mentioned more theoretically ms in other states I hear it more not right you're not back yet so I guess right but yeah if it in it is in Illinois if you're if you're unemployed you're getting to your benefit is even all last forever your benefit is about twelve dollars an hour or so and so now the quick here's the here's the math if I if my boss wants me back at eight dollars an hour I'm thinking of what yeah I'm I'm not I'm I I'm you want to take a pay cut to come back and work hard and even if they say well you we understand so we can give you fifteen dollars an hour okay now I'm putting myself in harm's way for a net of three dollars an hour and that goes into my factor too if I'm young and eager and working sure no problem if I'm young and caring for elderly parents in my home I have to think about this I got to have one minute left what's the best thing you've eaten lately fill the tell best thing I've read lately is stuff I made some we'll be right over yeah yeah I know I made it I made it I made a

"I'm Rick Pearson the Chicago Tribune here in the WGN skyline studio as the Sunday spin continues and we continue our conversation with Tom Weitzel the police chief of riverside and I I know Tom you you issued a a news release about this and and about a week ago or so about speeding and I have to tell you I'm not out on the roads that much okay but when I am it's amazing I mean it is utterly amazing how people to see they think the roadway is just clear and Arjun zooming and yeah you're absolutely correct it and you know what that's no secret it doesn't take a trained professional hello I'm forced the monster to realize match what what's happened is that there are some individuals are taking advantage of the fact that police are making less traffic stops that we were in this particular town our officers to have less contact with the public for the short period of time hopefully he and he should be in most cases stopping individuals that are recklessly still are doing traffic stops but they're not doing normal Monsignor protocol routine type of speed enforcement probably stopping the DIY offenders were stopping the reckless drivers but there is absolutely an increase in speeding and reckless driving and there's less traffic on the roadway so people are trying to get wide open and it's really bad and difficult and there's been some pretty serious crashes result that well I think back to a few weeks ago about the the crash on the I think was the Kennedy Eden's round there with the multiple vehicles that were involved in as soon as I heard about I knew exactly what it happened because people were just driving like there's no tomorrow yeah and injected it's definitely more legal are receiving complaints of increased speeding reckless driving Yasser still are making traffic stop when they see reckless conduct a reckless driving or impaired driving but they have been most cases most of the law enforcement agencies has just said during the short period of time what we want to have less contact that's that's very public events that balance I was talking about yeah of that that that were were kind of the end but you know at the same time you know when you look at people wanting to go out for a walk her her the weather's changing you know people are out on their bikes or whatever there is you know people are starting to come outside and and you know people don't always follow the crosswalk yeah there there that's something that's really been a really noticeable there's way more many people out walking biking walking their dog and if you go to something higher but no it's been a long time people are trying to avoid each other on the sidewalk server switching their crossing it needed blocker crossing the to do the right thing to stay six feet away social distance in with him when you're driving you know all of a sudden these people are trying to do residents are trying to do what they're supposed to do and then the speed in the reckless driving it's a computer a real problem so I would agree with you told your son can best treat traffic has definitely increased and that's something to keep in mind I mean look everybody should keep that in mind if they're if they're getting behind the wheel just just keep that in mind there's people outside and they're outside in numbers that we probably haven't seen in quite some time so please keep that absolutely going back to when we talked about enforcement and and of of you know these these war analysts say the house parties but but but things like of people gathering in parks in those kinds of things and I understand you're basically using a community service officers now to to patrol parks yes so we're we've reassigned their community service officers two different ships just to patrol the parks in the difference in addition to the officers to source the social distancing by compliance and you know the parks are open B. playgrounds are shocked the L. athletic fields questions from anyone shot through the park or somebody wants to walk her dog to the park at shine specially if their social distancing them there Masconomet actually fine but we're just we're just making sure that they don't have their kids on the playground equipment and they're not playing basketball or they're not doing something or going to the bench is one of the issues with that is you know if some people see that people can play tennis or the complete basketball then another group comes in another group comes in it gets to be a very large gathering besides you know something that was small and they're they're not a family they're intending to do that but people see other people doing it in the sailing on the airplane football why don't we go also plays soccer here in the same field and then it becomes crowded in back were you choose come to well and especially you know as we saw this weekend and and with the weather starting to turn into spring and and getting warmer than that natural desire of wanting to be out and given the you know limited number of places that people can go they turn to parks and and those kinds of things and yeah and I I I encourage people to get out and take their dogs for a walk and walk you know because you know you tensions can arise when people are in the home and locked in their homes and apartments for long period of time to get some pressure go up just it'll just put you through the social distancing and wear a mask when it's appropriate and I think that'll be you'll be okay I want to ask you about a letter that you wrote to the cook county commissioners about and this was on behalf of yourself as well as the fire emergency chief Barclays Matthew Buckley in riverside about the issue of the HIPAA requirements these are the quote privacy requirements and the need for law enforcement issue put it and and the fire department to know if they're going to a call is that person is it contagious infected with a covert nineteen and so far the county health department as well as I understand it has rejected those calls there were and you know that's really concerning and it's extremely disappointing because I myself am a fire chief in riverside Matthew Buckley along with your novels President Bush recently I'm very supportive of the initiative the Attorney General in Illinois beat what's widely considered the top law enforcement officer in the state well legal opinion that under these circumstances one time there is a provision in the HIPAA requirements that would allow police chose to get the address Kirsten home recovering from cold at night she and we wouldn't know going there nope nope demographic information all told to kick your worries and then when he leaves the band recovers him or her we would take it out of our system we're not we're not holding it and we thought that that the company would comply once the Attorney General issued an opinion saying yes not only that we got our sexual perversion and the cook county department of public health said not he recently they were sued by the northwest central dispatch consolidated dispatch center and the judge did not side with the dispatch center the judge sided with technical requirements even though the Attorney General said it's legal is that being appealed I don't think they've made a decision that was just the decision just came out like Thursday or Friday last week that it was denied Peter dispatch center and I really I can't understand that because we don't have enough your position was with the police chief and fire personnel should always treat every individual you come in contact with it having corners can we do if we had that we came to do we don't have enough equipment to do that employee shingle trying with every single person it could be we would run out of equipment and I'm talking personal protective equipment impossible so governor chief so you're you're asking for addresses not the names of individuals actually I'm from a from day one we never asked for anything the address is never asked for any personal information whatsoever because I mean obviously that's where that's where we get into this situation about right of privacy and and those kinds of concerns but you're just settling on the fire the police chief fire chief for United we absolutely understand the historic revision we comply with it every single day on a normal basis we were only asking for in this case for addresses for this limited period of time that's all one other thing I want to ask about two was that you have become part of a mutual aid agreement with north riverside McCook and Brooke field about basically establishing that is kind of a a multi policing zone if if if mutual aid was triggered over concerns about the officers who made up the become infected and have to go off the job I'm wondering has has this mutual aid pact been invoked and the what is the situation on the ground as far as law enforcement officers in that area as far as covert nineteen so currently it has not been enacted it was a group of chiefs that are always municipalities they got together in our consolidated dispatch center we decided that what would we do if we lost a great percentage of our officers to call it nineteen because were all small suburban police communities so outside of just helping each other out we wanted a formal agreement that we could handle calls in each other's municipalities totally so we can be dispatched for example riverside would be dispatched to Brookfield marker side of cooking we can handle their calls for them from start to finish no matter what it is you wouldn't have to burden the community that had several officers out because of the cold at nineteen so our our city managers and those managers and our elected officials supported it we recently got a sign it has not been used it's kind of the last worst case scenario but we wanted this piece of this document so that our residents and all that you really know if you need the police were coming even if war devastated if were devastated by the corona virus our neighboring police agencies will pick up our calls for service and you will get police service in their communities so before site here just in case yes indeed it is literally a worst case scenario but we knew we wanted to make sure that you all are residents knew that by all the residents in all the communities of riverside Brookfield marker stomach pain all day if they call nine one one you will get a police response that's police chief Tom Weitzel of riverside chief is always a great conversation thank you for joining me thank you have a great night thank you very much you're listening to the Sunday spent a we're going to take a quick break this.

"Chicago Tribune and now with bulls dot com they joined our Scott van pelt is your record this in spite of its accomplishments was something that inevitably was doomed it was in the sense that you could go back to ninety three where Michael was so worn out and talking about the load and carry the load and what he had to do and that's literally in the playoffs in ninety three was talking about retiring new teammates real well you know he's just more nowadays don't worry about it it'll be back and courses fathers that added to that but this is the burden of these years going on that I think he was starting to think about it there was starting to think about it one thing that gets overlooked sometimes with Fidel is that it is a sign of the parents or Pentecostal minister ministers and treating is taking like a congregational ways he had this rule and thinking about seven years with the team now he had gone over that because of the ninety five ninety six season but he was thinking that he needed a sabbatical and the team leader sabbatical from his voice so those forces were dynamic also we see that is difficult and we saw with the warriors how difficult it is to manage expectation and accomplishment in all this and that and Jackie if you go back to your recollections even saying ninety seven the how how can a dysfunctional wasn't even in the midst of this Scott I'm telling you I dropped in on the bulls during the ninety seven playoffs either playing the Washington bullets and I go to see Phil and I'm asking why is to Florida on the team and he said well Jerry Krause gets a neighborhood with people he never with me once so I go to the owner Jerry Reinsdorf and I say why is this happening trying to win a championship why did your cold has something in his contract we go with the other team was trying to win a championship Phil was talking to the Memphis Grizzlies while he's in the playoffs and then I go to Michael Jordan I say it looks to me like it was going to be adherent cells and and Michael said to me if he does I'm going home with my family no it's got in ninety seven and then they wouldn't give in ninety eight they're talking about Justin saying J. A. what what if someone were to try to quantify how in spite of the dysfunction it works I mean obviously having Phil having Michael like that accounts for some of it but as you recall just these teams and and the the the message that they're trying to manage how does it all work the one thing that I think we need to look at going back is the benefit of Michael Jordan Jordan taking that break to go off and play baseball and you know missing the ninety three ninety four season and not not coming back until nineteen ninety five is what I think that they would help solidify the relationship between Michael and Scotty and Scotty had been one of the ones who I think was jealous of all the attention and all the glory that Michael Jordan got as they were getting their first three rings together but then when Michael went away and Michael had to study had to bear the burden all by himself and he saw how difficult that could be I think he appreciated that so when Michael came back in and Michael appreciate what study did too and I think wanted to help so Michael came back that relationship which was the most she I think was improved even previous you know compared to the previous relationship from the ninety one to ninety three three feet so I think that was a key component because you also deal with Dennis Rodman was liable to fly out of orbit at any given moment I want to finance a little bit of texture to this because I really a lot of layers to what was going on please and if I know Michael said you know Phil's not the coach I'm not going to plan this is a guy who has changed his mind a lot at the end of the call me several times when a question about it is that I have a right to change my mind said it was never going to play for the Dream Team a play maybe for the ninety three said that that's over and never going to play basketball so much to the fact that the bulls.

"Critic at the Chicago Tribune actually we're gonna get fill the telephone to write and we'll also talk to a restaurant owner and manager who has had the better some specific thoughts about grub hub and door dash and all of these other food delivery services out there a lot of people are posting their frustration on the restaurant industry side I don't know where they were before hand I thought that they wanted us to use the services there is a peace it food and wine dot com and essentially the guy said a lot of things you're doing right now are fine you should be washing your hands you should be socially distancing but you should also be deleting grub hub from your phone well the restaurants has been saying that their fees have been amounting to almost thirty percent of the bill that's what I'm reading yeah and I think we know that San Francisco put a cap on it last week I think at ten or fifteen percent to which GrubHub then send the thing out to their users right what IBM GrubHub then told everybody we've got to fight this cap a fifteen percent they pushed back as though they weren't getting enough bad publicity to begin with I don't understand that Steve I don't understand how we're with you have do you use third party delivery service really no I have no idea I I have once or twice and it didn't go well at least I'm like dammit when I was a kid you used to call the restaurant and say Hey send the pizza now I got to create an account get a username use this thing got it out of the I'm like just send me some food so maybe that's just the boomer in me but I've always been frustrated by it maybe because I just haven't given it a chance but if I had known that thirty percent of what I was going to pay is going to go to the delivery company rather than the food maker I don't think I would have used him anyway but I'll tell you something else there's been times where I didn't feel like I had an option I've called they're going to a restaurant websites and they say well we just use GrubHub Mike all right well then maybe I won't order from you today or maybe I will but why would they be giving thirty percent of their revenue away that's just as make any sense well because a lot of those restaurants don't deliver typically so they're they're picking up da carry out business through GrubHub feral others are other outlets to do to understood but now that's the only business they've got they're hanging on by a thread and they had to give way thirty percent so this is the criticism for these other companies who are suddenly improbably seeing a lot of money come through their coffers the maybe they need to just give a little bit of it back right now the other deal with the auto insurance companies are doing fill the tells the restaurant critic at the Chicago Tribune Derry are Phil good afternoon or morning rather how are you doing yeah I'm good that's where this conversation is today what do you want to say about all that Phil well first of all I will apply to the city of San Francisco which I think yesterday announced a fifteen percent cap on delivery fees for these third party ad delivery people yeah I I would still say listen if you can make a living out there I I guess I got no business telling you how much money you get to make what kinda living you're going to earn but it seems to me like fifteen percent is fair especially right now fifteen is not I can't say I can't say numbers but especially for some operations that don't have doesn't have its own delivery personnel because you need you need you need you need employees you need to automobiles you need all that stuff insured but ends and so it made it depending on how the numbers work and painting and kind of falling you can do using delivery it may work out at certain percentages I mean these these companies didn't boost their percentages just for this court of ours crisis that young does just what it's been well as for some places it has been marginally worth it but especially for new restaurants that never did delivery before and have been forced into the carry out to pick up delivery model they're looking at thirty percent saying I can't make money like that I'm I'm you know I was I was well you know what who's a tiny margins before still slams on the phone like to feel he's the winner of Bravo's top chef season fifteen and you know his bio he's was the executive chef at the Michelin starred PSP Ajah in case the US you know he's opening up his own place Joe fill the tells on the line Phil Joe say hello catch up guys how are you okay so are you a long time yeah are you doing I didn't think this was out was going to go down but Hey no well I hope you're okay with sharing some time to fill the tell we can hang up on him if you'd like Joe not always happy to share time with so that it wouldn't be the first time so Jones so you've been listening to this conversation too is there anything you want to add a do we have it about right here yeah I think part of it is also you know I think one of the things she said was well like why didn't you know people care before that they were given thirty percent I think part of it is one year the restaurant opened you have people coming in and you're just saying what you're doing what your regular doing let's throw in another ten twenty orders so it's a little bit more money for yeah like maybe then you're like okay whatever thirty percent wasn't money what we are planning on making anyways were ready open were ready doing that were ready covering our costs so it's not as big a deal but now when you're not open you're not selling alcohol you're not be able to do any of these things to cover your overhead costs in your only stream of revenue it is you know right now the same door dash is like for new customers and then a lot of these aren't for people who like sign up you know or who are ready customers don't actually get thirty days free and then they're taking twenty percent which is probably one of the best deals in the industry obviously and from talking to most restaurants wars like you know they want electrical systems don't like fifteen percent everybody's like fifteen you know twenty percent somewhere there that had a reasonable belief grub hub it's ten percent charge they give you twenty percent marketing C. and they make you pay the three one half percent credit card she so really they're thirty three and a half percent can you make it unable what happens then so if I order a hundred dollars of food you're going to get sixty seven dollars do you right do you do break even lose money or make money on sixty seven dollars well I'm sure she said of dollars you think you know your true cost is thirty percent your labor costs there is you know let's say you're running a real loud rock bands are so let's just say it's five percent so that's thirty five percent there so it's a restaurant I'll order your open your rack your brains everything else has to be less than that last little thirty percent last for you and it's just like you're just not going to make money on that you're going to lose so and I think one of the other things you said you know before restaurants would just send you our services because we weren't set up for them now more restaurants are you know people have talked to who like a lot of restaurants like deleting Lincoln Park there just to pick up because they're like we can you know use this model to keep people hate to keep our lights on to keep the right Hey well like if we got to pay thirty three point five percent to a delivery service like we might as well just you know shut the doors or better off just sitting here losing money you know the need it was an even more and so I think that's the a couple of the big issues with it that's why it's kind of coverage you have right now with all these people are looking at it and trying to negotiate with these companies but these companies are basically being like yeah this is this is the deal and then they go back and they have these little crafts you know ludicrous ads on TV say you know it's our turn to support restaurant to scramble Betsy you're just like you're charging thirty three point five or anybody for yourselves and you know what it feels like for you know would be interested you know this your whole company is built on the idea of this industry and out of the back of these restaurants right at our greatest have a crisis you're gonna put you know you put the money into advertising instead of putting it back into the pockets of the restaurant well if they're not careful there's not gonna be any grub for them the hub with no doors for them to dance to and you don't feel it seems to me like certain kinds of food lend themselves better to the Kerry out or the delivery business right so HM right I was just gonna say lucky lucky if you're doing pasta or pizza because that's pretty simple it stays hot well and it's not that complicated to food right and for a lot of pizzerias they already have their delivery systems set ups I know I know for instance luminaries because I talked to mark my money not too long ago all all their delivery all the delivery pick personal are are in place they're they're people they're trained to their way and so they have and and something else but I I bumped into quite accidentally I was using I was I was doing some curbside can't pick up stuff from from a restaurant and they were working through one of these third party delivery people and when I went on the site and started going through it all of a sudden it shut down and what turned out is that the restaurant had closed off the third party delivery service that day because orders were coming in faster than they had the capacity in their in their downsized kitchen to fulfill yeah right and and sometimes it's very odd maybe all the time he's the third party online services they don't have they they they're accommodated they don't account for that so suddenly you get slammed with a whole bunch of orders the coming over electronically there's no way to slow down the trickle it to anything and so they just think almost virtual most literally pulling the plug on that and saying we just don't pick up the rest of the night because we've got more orders and we can that's probably what happened to be Phil I in advance ordered from Carson some ribs there right next to the radio station Calexico and I did everything right I got there I waited an hour and all that they just got a ton of people that the if you know wanting food delivered or picked up at six o'clock seven o'clock and they just didn't have the staff to take the orders read the orders are cooked the orders you know yeah dot what I what I picked up at another restaurant and they the person at the desk was the one taking the credit cards to pay for the order he was the one grabbing the bag with your name on it and he was the one answering the phone and yeah I unfortunately had gotten there at about six thirty five that evening for dinner and I went out of their saying I would not want to be a customer here in forty five minutes so if you eat now no Joe you are in between restaurants right now right you're building a new restaurant right what do you what kind of what's your new place going to be so we're building a restaurant and open market.

"To my Chicago Tribune and then there was a excellent piece by ray long regarding how the fads recorded calls of a very close confidant of house speaker Michael Madigan this is from his sources Michael McLean is his name is a very famous lobbyist who is now retired but apparently the F. B. I. was listing to Mister McLean cellphone solazzo start there with the ray long of your Chicago Tribune ray as you wrote the speaker is famously cautious about what he says in public in over the phone does that include his long time friend Mister McLean well the question is that the great question obviously Mike by plane is been a lobbyist who has talk to almost every other lobbyists in Springfield over the years whether he has gad all those conversations over the cell phone or whether he's gathered up on whether the feds have it on tape that's the real big question and whether or not there are lawmakers on that is another question we're not sure who all is on the tape but we do know that Mike McLean long time lobbyist from Quincy is on it and because it was his phone that was the the subject to what the feds were looking at not just to the clear right along with the was when he was not wearing a wire the feds were listening in on this phone right great great will they have recordings of coals that were made in which McLean and others were talking and so we have one source who explained it specifically that it it was recording that made as a result of an FBI wiretap on McLean's cell phone how close are my man again and Mister McLean I mean they go back decades correct here absolutely they go back to the nineteen seventies they were both lawmakers in the house even before the house was cut down from a hundred and seventy seven two hundred eighteen in fact it was the year that it was cut to one eighteen nineteen eighty two that has that Mike McLean lost and left of the house and he is hung around as a lobbyist ever so and he just quit his lobbying gig and built two thousand sixteen how tough is it to get a judge to authorize a wire tap on somebody like Mister McLean well you the user and can a **** nilly things used various levels on what you have to get you know we we it it's easier to get for example a subpoena but the more information you have and the chance of probable cause of some sort of crime is higher when you go in for a wire tap so that is the that is kind of a level where tips or other treated to those investigative mass that is my partner Jason Meister roads in the story we had together today it's a the last resort and it requires proof not only that a specific crime was being committed but also that the target was using a particular phone to do so and your answer don't you have to answer to the judge every ten days to get a renewed yes so yes there is a short period you're on a short leash when you have that kind of power to listen then all right along from the Chicago Tribune is here you don't have to mention Meister he's on the program you are right the team effort Sir please me for I have a sore on today talking about this piece he would not be mentioning ray long I'll have to work on that is this is this is the same and this is all connected I think you know here in Illinois every there are no coincidences in corruption or politics but is this the case that involves the former X. lined CEO who is also on the federal reserve here and she's gone it is is the same case right this is the one in which common lobbyist activities are being examined by this as and promise your left abruptly a few weeks ago and we have reported that she is the focus of the investigation a couple of their prior lobbyists are also under scrutiny and this is a sprawling investors sprawling why would twisted Webster we even this the same one that involves the city club of Chicago to yeah in it you know we we aren't sure exactly how many of these different types of investigation that it you know ranging from the one involving it Burke to the one that involves Martin Sandoval the senator to this one but the we do know that there are connections between the sand of all case and this one because Calumet is been subpoenaed and so is excellent been subpoenaed with regard to both the lobbying activities and to the sand of all alright I want to ask you to comment on this but the over under on Matt again alternately being charged in this I'm gonna go and take the under because I think it's too shrewd well he's a smart
