"The program and Happy Labor Day weekend Coming up this Saturday, our nation will mark the 20th anniversary of the September 11th attacks on our country. But those who were alive on that day we all remember where we were what we were doing when we heard the news or saw the images on TV, and for others, there are stories that they have heard about in school or from their family members. But September 11th 2001 is forever etched in our nation's history as a day where our lives were turned upside down. And our nation was under attack. Joining me today on the phone is Anita Foster. She is with the Arlington Independent School District. But on September 11th of 2000 and one Anita was working for the American Red Cross here in North Texas. I wanted Anita to join me today because for me, the American Red Cross is always there during a disaster, whether it is a hurricane like Hurricane Ida, which struck Louisiana last week. Or a tornado that sweeps across North Texas or a major attack. Like what happened on September 11th of 2000 and one I, for one, never thought I would need the help of the Red Cross. But on September 11th 20 years ago I became a recipient of Red Cross shelter because I was one of the thousands of air passengers who ended up in Canada in Gander, Newfoundland. American Airlines flight was diverted when U. S airspace would shut down and I was stuck on a plane for 28 hours before we were allowed to get off that plane on September 12th and were taken to a Knights of Columbus Hall. It was the Red Cross in Canada that mobilized with the community to make sure that we had food that we had shelter and even phone lines to connect with our loved ones when ourselves wouldn't work. I will always be indebted to the people of Canada of Gander, Newfoundland and to the Red Cross. And so today's show Is dedicated to the Red Cross. Anita. Thank you so much for being on the program today. It's my pleasure, and I have to tell you, Anna. I know your story. We've talked about it many times, but it chokes me up every time because it's such a reminder while you're there in Canada. Not knowing what's going on that simple acts of kindness, opening a home or providing a phone or whatever it is. Those simple acts of kindness are very healing for the giver and the receiver and that Ultimately at this 20 year mark Is what I've taken away from 9 11. You are so very right, Anita. In a time when we thought that evil had one, it was simple acts of kindness, not just by the Red Cross around the world. But by individuals around the world, people opening up their homes in Gander, Newfoundland. People saying, What can we do for you? How can we help you? How can we connect you with your family members so that they know where you are and what's going on. Individuals stepped up to the challenge on September 11th of 2001, and I know that the American Red Cross here in North Texas Has a very important story that it played on September 11th of 2000 and one Anita. What is it that you remember about that day 20 years ago and how the Red Cross here in North Texas had to step up during a time of national crisis? You know the Red Cross in Dallas At the time. It was the Dallas area chapter. I was instrumental in helping to connect families with those that were missing one of the things that was interesting at the time. The Dallas area chapter had just undergone a move and said, We were in a fairly new facility at the time considered to be wanted to both high tech. Command centers if he will in the country, And on that morning of September, the 11th We got a phone call from Washington D. C from our headquarters that asked if the Dallas area Red Cross could stand up. A phone bank if you will, in the next few days to be able to help funnel some of the calls that were coming in from family members trying to find their loved ones, But the reality was that actually took place in a handful of hours instead of a handful of days, and it's because the Dallas Red Cross had the most modern technology. To be able to field phone calls. I will tell you. It was an incredible scene and we didn't talk about it a lot at the time because we were just so busy. But if you remember, people can remember back sitting in front of television and just watching those terrible images over and over again. Then you would remember seeing 800 numbers crawling across the bottom of the screen. If you're missing loved ones call this number. And one of the first places those calls were answered was actually in Dallas, Texas. What were the stories that you heard about these family members looking for loved ones and not knowing if they were okay? You know these stories will not be mine directly. And I want people to know that because our deployed But my my colleagues that were here had a variety of roles and functions, some more mental health workers. Some were family caseworkers, those that you see on the large disasters. Maybe they're out on the curb at a local home fire. We had logistics people. These were dedicated red crossers that packed into the disaster command center and just took unlimited calls 24 hours a day and so often. Um They were not able to find information that families needed. So can you imagine? Being in Dallas in your phone is ringing constantly and you're gathering family information, and we're running that through the New York, New Jersey through the All the airlines were trying to connect to people that might be in a red Cross shelter in New York or New Jersey or anywhere in that region. And so many times our team was just unable to make that connection, And we absolutely understand why, on those occasions that my colleagues would share stories about When they found somebody and they were able to to say Well, you have. The person is in the Red Cross shelter in New York City, and they were able to put him back together with their family. You know this probably better than anyone, Anna for you personally what It was like that day to not have communication to your family and so being able to make those Those connections very powerful, and a lot of that did happen right here in the Metroplex, and I think that's a story that we didn't tell very well at the time. And I really didn't have the opportunity to. It was just an act of, uh of the pure evil that day, and the focus was on help, and that was it. And amidst the chaos being able to provide a friendly voice at the other end of the line to help calm people's fears. I think that's so underrated. Just to have someone that you can speak to you. That's gathered your information, and you feel confident is helping you try to solve your problem and our workers did. I mean the calls went on in that call center 24 hours a day for about six weeks after 9 11 and our Red Cross team They are. They are investigators. They stop at nothing to be able to find a loved one and reconnected family, So they were in constant communication with the other Red Cross chapters up.

"He was an icon without. Really any controversies in his life. And i wouldn't Place tommy heinsohn. Quite in that category because heli was crazy. volatile coach. He was a crazy Announcer but you will not hear a bad word about tommy heinsohn. He was and in my mind. He was the best thing you could be. He was genuine. You know he was authentic. There was no act. There was no faking mostly in his thing. People know almost four was eighty six when he passed away yesterday. That's a hell of a run for a guy his size with his. shall i say blood pressure. And the fact that he smoke cigarettes most of his life. I used to look at him thirty years ago and be walking into the garden and he was friendly and he was gregarious but he was. You know cigarette colin drink golan whatever and in high strung and i'd say he not gonna be around that long and he was and that's a good thing because he was working essentially up to the end almost as the Color guys the analyst which he did for thirty something years for for the celtics but he was involved in the celtics for like fifty years which is amazing It but i mean like call player coach great coach and announcer national announcer and then local outsor- and usually tom. I think of those homework is the two games. Is there being homered you so they could survive there being a homer baseball play by play guys like like castiglione on the radio. He's a homer because he's a sycophant. He wants the owners to like them. Protect them for good reason they do the whole never get fired because the owners like them because he sucks up. That's what tommy was doing. He just loved the celtics. He was rooting for his team. And when he get mad at the refs it was one hundred percent genuine. It wasn't out of self interest. He just liked the celtics. that's how he was. It was real. It was funny. It was a lot like johnny most in that regard. He was an entertainer as well as an announcer and people appreciate it and he just no one ever said a bad word about him His personality was loud. And and you know full of laughs you can hear him laugh from you. Know three doors three doors down you could go or if he was in the garden and you were fifty feet away can laugh at smokey voice and and just a great personality and it was a hell of a run. It's also it's different to be a homer as a color analyst. I wanna throw jack edwards through a glass window. Just he's the word it's different to be a play by play guy that color guy. Scott zolak could prove that right but that's the point he's been toning it down right now. They're trying to bring scalp. Greenie i think is is doing a lot more. And he's just not the same obviously as as hide so he he seemed to not going to say saw the writing on the wall but he toned down the last couple of years right. I guess yeah and you know sometimes was over the cup but it was funny and it was really wasn't acting wasn't playing a role you're right play by play guys. They're not supposed to do that. Color guys can get away with it especially when they played and coached the team for decades. You can't expect them to be neutral. I guess he did a good job of it. I don't remember exactly what i thought of him when he was doing the national games but he wasn't obviously yelling at the refs from the cult from the seat way was when he was doing loud in boisterous. There's no doubt. I just saw him with breast bread. Musburger who used to work with some of those things and and he was he was definitely loud. But it's it's great when when this it's kind of rare they have somebody who can promote legitimately and provide good analysis india right. He was like the the loudest guy at every like knights of columbus hall. In you know he talked like people. So i thought he was awesome. Even i don't care less about basketball but i always thought he was awesome. I'll always love how he was a homer in in he had no time for the refs. And i you know. I don't think they meant those kinda people out of broadcasting school anymore. They're very it's actually a good point good point but colonnade is the color guys. Elec and tommy they. They don't bother me especially if they played coach the team they're being. It's the play by play guys. Jack edwards jokes thing. Who are doing it and it's annoying and they're doing it to please the owner to assure some job security. That's annoying but here's leigh montville.

"Dan McColl a musician founded the grassroots group blue, revolution simple call to action, join US beat trump. His website is a hub for action and his facebook group now has over sixty three thousand members has been helping them engage important states and raise money for crucial campaigns. And Mariah Craven, and this is how we win the many. Dan Cool. Thank you so much for taking the time to talk to us. A, year to be here, thanks for having me. So first of all, what was your first volunteer experience in politics like? I wasn't college. It was in western Massachusetts I went to UMASS. Amherst and it was the summer of two thousand four, so I signed up to knock on doors for the Kerry campaign. No, it was actually the DNC and it was. When was carry was running so. A while back. and. What did you do? While we were not gonNa do as we were driving driving volunteers around western Massachusetts, which is a very. Liberal area and You know they got the five colleges. They're in Amherst Massachusetts, but we were driving sort of further east towards the middle of the state. And you know we kind of noticed as we were driving around the you know. Massachusetts has a reputation for being super, blue and liberal and progressive, but. It wasn't really so there was some towns you kind of wanted to avoid but and it was kind of the height of the Iraq war. Intentions were high. And did not appreciate showing up on their doorstep, and asking you to votes against the commander in chief. It was nine open experience, but I think it. Kind of a toxins toughen my skin a little bit to able to. You know handle. Activism, which is just talking, I mean all activism is talking to strangers and. Talking about some things that are perhaps a little sensitive. On kind of got my feet wet for for organizing. So now you're working in a very. Before you were knocking on doors and driving people around the most nerve wracking part of. Organizing for me as being responsible for other people and in their cars. And now you're doing this really cool digital project but I imagine that there's a connection between those two well. I think knocking on doors, and and also I think I was I did be. On a street barking fundraising New York City when I lived there and I. Think one of the things that you learn is that if someone is not willing to volunteer, or someone is not as enthused about volunteering, you are that's okay, and you can move onto the next person. There are lots and lots of people out there who want to get involved kind of have the. Personality for it, and there's some people who don't right. They would rather help out in other ways than directly contacting strangers, so it's all good Everyone played their part and you kind of. You you get to appreciate the diversity of of act that's winning elections takes a whole team in mellish so You kinda get to work that out monthly growth digitally and and Carson. And danior musician who has played in some really cool bands with some great people. Tell us a little bit about your music background. Yeah I. Didn't playing music. You know pretty much life I played or I was a singer of a band in the early two thousands, and we toured the country many times and play Some major festivals toward with some big bands and Released some albums and I think that. I've been organizing people to get together for some purpose since. When are teenager? It was getting together for Punk shows and vfw's knights of Columbus halls. And now it's getting people into runs to wash debates and. You know, have election themed? Cocktails are so it's it's part of the same process, but I do I do still play music I play in a band up here in Boston and we were called ruined the night and we played. We've only played a few times. We were kind of just getting started as Kobe. Gobi, But we've been going around and doing some social distancing recording, and in the last few weeks, and it's been fun. We like to call ourselves Boston's Premier Dad. Broadband. We play punk rock young wraps galleons, but now we're playing something a little more mellow, but still as energetic. I I. Love Your Your Point about the preparation that you had as a musician. You know preparing you for life and organizing because. Coming up here as a musician in Los Angeles, you know just like the amount of people I would approach with flyers, and just trying to get people to come two gigs and everything I mean that was my my organizing school right there. So tell us about blue revolution and what people can find their. Revolution is a troll free. Group of sixty three thousand aggressives and grants, and we'd been in operation since inauguration day. It was a group that I started I was teaching college in New York City as an adjunct when trump was inaugurated, and I started the group as basically just the way to vent with fifty fellow friends, and we were called back then countdown to beat trump. For lack of a better name because I was. Standing in the subway station, watching trump get inaugarated on my phone and Brooklyn and I literally looked up a countdown website to see how many seconds there were. Told Remember Third Twenty twenty. So started this group, and it kind of took on a light sound. I think that early on we were you know covering the kind of. I guess like the protests era. Call it of twenty seventeen. the airport protests, women's March obviously and the you know March for our lives and things like that and then I think closer two thousand eighteen midterms. We started to get more animated about midterm elections and mobilizing people to find their narrow swing district I think we did some fundraisers for swing tweet. Worked with swing left. On their last weekend projects and their friends who added their friends, who, out of their friends and suddenly We had tens of thousands of people, so it's it's really exciting, and IT'S A. Troll Free Community of people who are concerned about their country and we. We like to think of ourselves as kind of a support group slash you know mobilization pad. I Guess Mobilization Watch cab, so. Both of those things we need to support each other and we need to launch everyone into action, absolutely no question. How do you stay troll free? What we screen members who come in, and it's pretty easy to remove anyone I. Think I think we got about one a month. someone who doesn't laugh. At something they shouldn't be laughing. and. So it's easy enough to remove folks and the people who join that group have been added by members and gig alert, pretty smart doubt not adding their right wing uncle. Or Friend? They weren't the high school west. and you know people are people got. Dick Uncles get a bad rap. Why did always the creepy uncle the right wing uncle? You know it's never an aunt or a cousin or something? It's always an uncle. That's true. I mean. Because I. Know where I'm sorry Steven you. Do. You come up with some..
"columbus hall" Discussed on The Takeaway
"Politics with Amy Walter on the takeaway coming to you from whyy in Philadelphia this week and it's good to have you with us. We have a lot of stuff to get to the show. We're talking healthcare with Margaret. Sanger cats on the New York Times. We'll have a conversation about Maine Senator Susan Collins and her role in the impeachment trial. But first we're here in the keystone state so we wanted to kick things off with a look at the battle for this very important state in two thousand twenty Pennsylvania's one of the handful of swing states that will determine the winner of the Electoral College. Hasn't gotten a lot of attention from Democrats yet because its primary isn't until April twenty eighth then of course we're going to be spending a lot of time. This election season focusing on the state and we begin that look today with two members of Congress who represent districts in Philadelphia as I with congressman has been Brendan Boyle who represents Pennsylvania's second Congressional district in his office on Capitol Hill earlier this week. My current Congressional Congressional district is about half of the city of Philadelphia Basically Northeast Philadelphia parts of Philadelphia and including some of the really really hip and increasingly expensive neighborhoods. That border downtown areas like fish town in northern liberties It is very democratic district. Strict about seventy five twenty five roughly and it is a diverse district in the in the true sense at socio economically diverse. Many working class ask the middle class areas some real deep pockets of poverty and some incredible wealth and some of those neighborhoods that I described. And it's also racially diverse about half white a little less than a quarter African American and about twenty percent Hispanic so when I was looking at the results the election results Zolt in this district and this might be different now. I know because of the lines being redrawn in two thousand eighteen but in twenty sixteen what I saw. How was a district that in two thousand twelve had voted for Obama by about seventy seven percent gave seventy-three percent to Hillary Clinton now? Now that's still a very heavily democratic district but she dropped off some and that trump got about ten thousand more votes than Mitt. Romney had gotten in two thousand twelve twelve and in a state that was decided by forty thousand votes. Ten thousand votes is a big deal. Can you tell us what happened there. And what what what that is telling us about trump and democrats and their hopes for Pennsylvania. Well what you saw in the Northeast Philadelphia part of my the district which is a very blue collar white majority area. You saw the same dynamic northeast Philadelphia that you saw on Erie County Eh in north western Pennsylvania about seven hours away that you saw in Lackawanna County where Scranton is that you saw in many other parts of Pennsylvania and and then is largely blue collar democratic leaning areas that we won with Obama twice that we won John Kerry and Al Gore and Bill Clinton while they were all carrying the state We badly underperformed now Trump did win some of the Northeast Philadelphia Awards but Hillary Clinton won the bulk of them. And she's still won a slight majority in northeast Philadelphia but the drop off in margin in those kind of areas is basically how we went from a five point. Victory in twenty twelve to a one point loss in two thousand sixteen. So now here we are. It's who were on the eve of another general election. Tuck does about those neighborhoods in northeast Philly and how they're processing the President and Democrats. Well it's interesting Not just the North East Philadelphia but I think in demographically similar areas throughout the state. We won them back by quite a good margin in two thousand eighteen eighteen. You saw that. In a number of congressional races you also saw it in a number of state legislative races for Twenty twenty though. I think they were very much up in the air. It is an area that disproportionately has a lot of swing voters in a time in which there are clearly fewer swing voters today than there was was a generation ago. These are areas that happen to have a lot of swing voters and so as as we move forward to twenty twenty. There's no question that in a big part of our campaign needs to reach out to these areas and what are the messages and the issues that resonate with voters. How did they go from voting in first place for Obama and Kerry and Gore to voting for trump? How much of this do you think was about economics? How much this personality culture right? I'll say this. I think there is a short term answer in a long-term answer short term. There's no question focusing on pocketbook issues. About how voting democratic will improve approve. The lives of those kind of voters that were talking about that is absolutely important physically showing up something as simple as that people really pay attention attention to but then there's the longer term issue which deeply concerns me. There are many many blue collar areas of our state and our country country that over a generation are just not benefiting from the modern economy. Something in the early nineteen eighties began to happen in. which you you see? And you've seen this now. For close to four decades for those who have limited higher education. There are fewer jobs for less pay and fewer benefits than there was a generation ago. And the idea that we're going to solve that issue in one election cycle I think would be incredibly naive. The issue then of economics put that in context of the broader cultural all conversation because a lot of what we hear from districts like yours or parts of the state that we're talking about recently is that Democrats does seem out of touch on the through their goals for the country right. What's it what's important? A Democratic voters seems to them like issues that don't relate to how much of that is the case I don't think we should In any way abandon our values and by by the way I became the first State representative back. When I was a state legislator I became the first Democrat ever to win my state Rep district and I went on to be a founding member of the LGBT bt Equality Caucus in the State House? Now when I was showing up at weekly civic meetings did I necessarily lead with that. No if I was asked about it I didn't apologize. Apologize for it and I explained it but people I think had a connection with me. I'd knock on their doors. They knew me that was really important and gave me credibility to then pull people along. Maybe an areas where they weren't quite sold yet if we don't do that first part though letting people know that we actually care about them making sure that we do seem relatable and not quote unquote that is really important and the challenge right is that this is kind of hard hard to put into words. It's one of those things that you know it when you say it I am concerned that sometimes as a party fairly unfairly early we do come off getting tagged with that elitist label looking like we're much more comfortable in certain upscale areas where everyone has an Ivy League degree rather than hanging out at my local knights of Columbus Hall watching an Eagles game and the president also doesn't excellent job there. His twitter feed of making the case that it is Democrats who are the ones who are out of touch with values in these white areas. Yeah he of course. He's a fraud and he in no way represents the best interest of the kind of voters were talking about it but he does pantomine very well. Now let's be clear though that I think that there is a nuance of difference for for someone who is responding to trump's ugliest rhetoric correct whether it's on race or immigration. We're probably not winning that voter. Brock Obama didn't win them both time and they probably weren't voting democratic for the last generation. That's not the kind of voter that I'm talking about. I'm talking about the kind of voter who didn't go to college. Has a manufacturing picturing job is concerned about his or her future. Let's not forget by the way while we tend to think mail the majority of these workers were actually female and as looking looking for candidates will just fight for them. These kinds of folks that I'm describing light and voted for Barack Obama and in twenty in sixteen were still fed up still frustrated and decided they will give shots Donald Trump. So I look at them as really such a key the key swing constituency of my state and I do believe our success or failure in twenty twenty.
