Fresh update on "cory" discussed on Colorado's Morning News with April Zesbaugh and Marty Lenz

"Waste your time. 5 24 Now in Colorado's morning news, the march to November rolling right along both President Trump and challenger Joe Biden, taking their campaigns through important battleground states in the Midwest. President Trump held a rally in Ohio after meeting with one of his potential Supreme Court nominees. Meanwhile, Biden focusing on Wisconsin. Let's check on the campaigns of ABC News, White House correspondent Karen Travers. Thanks for coming on Karen. Thank you. Good morning. How is that vacant U s Supreme Court seat playing into both of their campaigns right now. Well, interestingly and maybe not surprising. The president last night really leaned heavily on this. You need to be really loving the opportunity to talk about his chance to kill another seat on the Supreme Court is a big issue for the president face. This is the big reason he was elected in 2016 people who back then said they didn't really like him. But they were willing to give him a chance because judges was so important to them and the potential to change the dynamic in the composition of the Supreme Court last night. Alles in Ohio, the president again promising it's going to be a woman, And it's saying that this decision will likely be announced by the end of this week. But Joe Biden in Wisconsin yesterday was hitting hard on a message of the economy and the president failing in his view on the Koven 19 pandemic. It was notable that buying didn't address or even mentioned the fight in Washington over the Supreme Court Vacancy left by Ruth Peter Ginsberg stepped, you know he didn't do that in remarks over the weekend. And But instead, the campaign's decided they're going to stick to their message. They feel that this is something that impact people more greatly directly in their lives. That this is a message that works for people with their worried about at home job economy and Koven on DH, you know they'll have him talk about the Supreme Court when they feel like it's necessary, But he's certainly not getting boxed into a debate with the president on the trail about this right now. So it will certainly come up next week when they're on stage together with that debate on Tuesday, you know, carrying a lot of people question about the president's truthfulness, but one area where he said it that he's very honest about I do think he got elected, as you pointed out, because people care about at least on the right. The Supreme Court. I imagine that played well at the rally saying, Hey, this is my third chance to pick somebody, somebody one of the court to make it more conservative. Yeah, And you're the big question, And we just don't know the answer yet to it because it's only Tuesday morning and repeat urgent Word passed away. Friday night is how does this shake up the race? It certainly is going to shake up the race because it's changing the focus, at least for the president. And, you know, talking to campaign advisers and White House officials. They love the days where he doesn't have to defend the covert response. They love the days where they can talk about something else that they feel rev up their base. But are the voters already locked in? You know, is this gonna move anybody? This is gonna get somebody that maybe wasn't going to vote Teo get out and actually show up at the polls, even if they had been a supporter of the president. We just don't know that. I do think that we're starting to see some polling coming in, and we're doing a lot of reporting out safe from this right now. It's indicating people from both parties. It's not just Democrats and Republicans queue aren't comfortable with this idea of rushing through this nomination and confirmation ahead of the election. Given how close we are that the next president and that could be President. Trump should be the one that gets to decide who fills the seats. Well, there are a lot of hypocrites on both sides were kind of exploring that on her Facebook page this morning Democrats who said one thing in 2016 or saying a totally different thing now and vice versa with Republicans, so it's interesting. You know how close we are to this election how people are changing their opinions over over the past four years? You talked about how Biden isn't really talking about this Open. U S Supreme Court seat is that because he realizes at least in polling Democrats don't seem to really vote on that issue. I think it's a combo of that, but also recognizing that right now for people in their everyday lives, they're more concerned about the virus is starting to see some of the numbers kicking up a bit in Midwestern states states where the president and vice president are going to be campaigning very heavily. They feel that going after president from on what they say are his failings on the virus and in all of the handling of the last couple of months and how that impacts the economy. That is a more winning message, something that people are much more concerned about on their day to day basis. Karen or both candidates going ahead or remain in some of those battleground states. What's ahead for both of them? Yeah, well, see Joe Biden in North Carolina. This weak enough the only event as of right now on his schedule. We're told he's gonna be hunkering down at the end of the week leading into next Tuesday's debate doing debate prep. President has said he prepares for the debate by just doing what he does every day and there's no you know, formalized. You know, a couple of days where he'll be off the trail. He's heading to Pittsburgh tonight for another rally with reporters may expect will be down in Florida at the end of the week back down on the campaign trail, But this announced Supreme Court vacancy could come Friday or Saturday for the president. Certainly we're going to get a lot of headlines out of that. ABC is Karen Travers from the White House. Thanks for the time as always. And you coming up the newscast moron. What Senator Cory Gardner now says about filling that vacant U S Supreme Court seat that ahead in the newscast in just a minute. First of 5 29 John Morrissey watching your drive.

Is Mitch McConnell Rigging The Game?

All In with Chris Hayes

Is Mitch McConnell Rigging The Game?

"Other news, there's the other branch of Congress or the other house. Of Congress. The Senate and everyone knows their Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is unshakable and ruthless, and he's going to maximize his power however cam, but it is also the case the death of Justice Ruth Bader GINSBURG has taken us to uncharted territory. There are very real political pressures that are going to affect how the next several months play out. Mitch McConnell does not care about being charged with the Crisi but the raw politics of this moment themselves are not uncomplicated. As it was with the affordable care act remember Mitch McConnell had a lot of bravado about that and he failed famously and humiliatingly to replace the law. Here's mayor discuss across pressures. He faces longtime McConnell Allah Gist Jane Mayer Chief of Washington correspondent New Yorker wrote an incredibly insightful profile McConnell back in April this weekend row quote from Mitch McConnell keeping a Senate. Majority matters more than the Supreme Court. Jamie. It's great to have. Let's start with that because it seems to me there's two imperatives here. Everyone says about McConnell the two things he cares about is keeping the Senate majority and being Senate majority leader. Judges the Federal Bench, and there is a way to interpret the politics of the moment that there's a little bit attention between those two imperatives. How do you see it? Well, I mean there is I mean he wants to get obvious wants to hold the majority wants to stay being majority leader. And, this is going to be the crowning moment of his career to have yet one more justice on Supreme Court here we can get him through and he's promised trump of course that he's going to have a vote on this, and so how do you do this the problem? The problem for McConnell is it's unclear if he can keep the majority in the Senate. It's a dicey election year for him. There are a number of racist. They're very close and he doesn't want to do anything that's going to hurt the endangered members of his caucus. So he's got to try to juggle the schedule in some way that doesn't put those members on the spot in a way that will hurt them. So he's the first thing he's going to do an, and surely his done is canvas. Those members find out exactly how they feel about how this this process would affect their races. And then, and then way that in terms of whether it be better have a vote before or after the election. So. It's it's. It's. It's it's tricky but he is nothing if not clever about things like this this is he he? Very early on in his career, he ran for office from a district where he hadn't been resident in residence long enough and he vowed after that, he would never again ignore the rules, and since then he's become kind of a master of the rules, the more arcane the better. And he just he loves talking to the parliamentarian in the Senate and figuring out sort of the the most devious ways to get what he wants. The most sort of obvious pressure here. Just talking about this and I think it's pretty interesting. There's a bunch of folks who are up. In who are imperilled where it's not clear That going ahead with this would be helpful them. We have a bunch of pulling out today showing majority of people oppose it. Those numbers will probably change as they converge towards the polarization and everything else. But like Cory Gardner is down in all the polls and Colorado, he's in a state that Democrats have carried. Now a bunch and plan to carry again Martha. mcsally sally is down a to mark Kelly. You know they're on the sort of aggressor side here in terms of public opinion. It does seem like they've kind of don't care. It doesn't seem like there's a jump together mentality here in terms of getting them to come out whether it was him or not a publicly for those. Well I think. He's GonNa. Be Looking at McConnell will look at each of these races and I think you can almost imagine that he's written off. Gardner in. Colorado, and makes out the in Arizona. So he's not going to change his plan just for them unless he thinks it's going to save them and you'd probably thinks it won't save them and he's already given collins kind of buy in Maine. So it gets you down to the racist that are really going to matter in this are probably it's it's probably Tillis in North Carolina, Joni Ernst in Iowa, and Danes in in Montana, and if McConnell feels that those three or not endangered by going head, he may just gun it. You know and and try try to get I think though that in addition to just thinking about each of these races and how it affects each of the races, there's something else. He's probably got to think about, which is the overall look of this thing if if it appears to the American public that he is one set of rules for Democrats and there's another set of rules he's got for Republicans here, one Senate rules for America and another set of rules for whoever trump nominates at this point, it looks like he's reading the game it looks corrupt. It looks like a naked power, grab an and it's ugly and that could actually create a backlash I think that both he and trump have to think about. It it might really bother a lot of people in this country to think that that it's it's just too corrupt game in Washington. Yeah, I. think that's a correct reading of both where the polls are and the political risks they run and I think it's notable that McConnell has committed to vote but not win and I thought. This was also notable. He wrote this dear colleague later re basically says I don't say anything don't lock yourself into position. Let it give it give us time to work over the coming days. We're GONNA come under tremendous pressure from the press to announce how he will handle the coming nomination for those who are unsure how to answer for those inclined to oppose giving nominee a vote I urge you all to keep your powder dry Dombrowski and collins. Have not heeded that but Mitt Romney said declined today saying anything I know Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania I fully expect will support moving forward. But that that to me, it was interesting because the timing here and the sort of needle to thread is not nothing I think we'll try to do it and the odds are in their favor they will. But because of exactly what you and unseeded from the political standpoint, it's not clear that this is help for them politically in the short term. I think it may not be I. Mean I think also it's going to energize the base on both sides here for and the thing is that when it comes to the energizing the base, the base that needs more energizing really is probably on the Democratic side and you've already seen it happen I, mean look at the amount of money that act Lou raise you know practically overnight a hundred, million dollars two, hundred and sixty. Now it's one hundred and sixty million dollars. Shipping shocking about money. Shocking money an and I think the other thing that it might do is from was doing some reporting two days. I think it may really energize kids younger voters because. You know they were kind of holding their nose, a lot of them about Joe Biden it wasn't an exciting. It didn't seem you now like there was that much reason to do it. Now there's a reason that a lot of young people are GONNA see they're gonNA look they're gonNa see Roe v Wade is in the balance they're going to see a four Bul healthcare act and possibly anything to do with insurance for preexisting conditions and they're looking at the future this is going to. Their. Lives for the this is a this is a decision that has tremendous implications for everybody in the country and it's GonNa be clear and so I, you know it may turn you know help turn out. The Democrats who were young. Six three Roberts court climate. Regulation jurisprudence. A. Favorable to the kinds of solutions. That are necessary. Do you think? Ultimately McConnell himself is up and I don't think he's. He's personally a lot of trouble against say, McGrath at least the pulling now but there are also just a bunch of seats that weren't supposed to be in play that really do seem like they are. There's A Texas poll that has cornyn barely up. There's a Mississippi poll out today that has. Chrissy Hyde Smith a just a few points on Mike espey. There's the Iwa Joni Ernst race I mean it's wild how wide the sort of battlefield has gotten for him to try to hold this thing together. It's it's really volatile and and and the thing is it. What it does is it puts the Republicans on the spot about they've been doing kind of a split that's broader and broader that gotta keep the trump face and and but that's not enough for in many places to get reelected, and so they've got to do is add in. The moderates the you know suburban women particularly and got a candidate here who for a nominee for the supreme court that is truly the choice of the evangelical part of the trump ace it by very much alienate moderate women in the suburbs and in other places especially over things like abortion where sixty two percent of the people in this country saver. Abortion. As keeping it legal and don't WanNa go backwards. So it's it's. It's I think it's a it's it's a it's a it's a risky thing for some ways. You people think it's all into such a gift. Not, necessarily think that's right. Read on the situation Jane Mayer thanks as always great reporting and inside appreciate it. Great to be with you.

Fresh update on "cory" discussed on WTOP 24 Hour News

"In Centerville at 7 11 here at W. T O P. Lindsey Graham, the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, says Republicans do have the votes to confirm a new Supreme Court justice before the election. Joining US CNN Washington correspondent Ryan Nobles Ryan as so how does that change the landscape of the Senate battle? Well, it's going to be very interesting Joan because there are you know a handful of Republican senators who are in very tight races, which really are going to determine whether or not the Senate stays in the hands of Republicans going forward where this is a political calculation where they've got to be very careful, and we've already seen some of these vulnerable senators come out and say that they are going to support whoever. President Trump offers up is the nominee, Senator Cory Gardner from Colorado being the most recent, and it seems as though the calculation that a lot of these Republican senators are making as well there. There could be some political blowback from this. This could anger moderates and Democrats. That they don't that they just pushed this nominee through and don't wait until after the election. There's a greater risk alienating President Trump's base and that if you're a Republican It is very difficult to win without President Trump Space and President Trump Space has made it very clear that they want him to fill this seat and do it as soon as possible. You know, Ryan, it doesn't seem like Democrats have a lot of options here, although House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that Democrats do have some arrows in their quiver. Do you know what she was referring to? Well, I think Bruce. What Nancy Pelosi is talking about here is that this is going to be a political gamble that Republicans are taking. This isn't about whether or not they are violating the Constitution or not within their powers. Article two clearly says that President Trump has the ability to do this your president for four years that three years and 11 months But the fallout could come after the fact. You know if Joe Biden were to win if Democrats were able to regain the Senate, there are a lot of options at his disposal. You know, the Constitution does not prevent the president from adding more people to the Supreme Court. So there's a possibility that they could stack the court with more justices to try and balance things out because The situation that's shaping up right now could mean a conservative majority for many years to come. So Democrats, you know, playing a game here, Trying T kind of to a certain extent, scare Republicans into what could happen if they lose the election. But it doesn't appear so Republicans are goingto. There's anything that's going to stop them from moving forward with this effort, and Republicans will meet today. Probably crafting strategies. Ryan always got too heavy. Thank you so much. CNN, Washington correspondent Ryan Doubles 7 30 Now In other news, a former D C government administrator has been fined $2500 by an ethics board for helping to create a tax break for Howard University's proposed new hospital as he was negotiating for employment there.

He was referred to the board by Mayor Muriel Bowser. On the very same day, he announced that he would step down. Last month, Young did accept the university's offer of employment up ahead.

Trump expects to announce Supreme Court nominee on Friday or Saturday

"Services have yet to be set for a Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died on Friday. But correspondent Karen Travers reports the Republican rush to replace her is well underway, President Trump said on Fox News Monday morning. He'll announce his Supreme Court nominee on Friday or Saturday, and he put pressure on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to move quickly on the confirmation process. I think it should be voted on And done before the election. I think that will be good for the Republican Party, and I think it would be good for everybody to get it over with, because it's always controversial. McConnell has not given any indication on whether a vote could come before Election Day, which is just 43 days away. GOP Senators Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and main Susan Collins have already said they were opposed to confirming a trump nominee prior to election day. Cory Gardner, Chuck Grassley and Mitt Romney. You're said to be on the fence to more Republicans would be needed to block such a confirmation if, as expected, all of the Democratic caucus opposes the pick.

Dodgers vs. Padres is the new high-stakes rivalry MLB needed

"Exciting team the hottest team in baseball right now at the Padres going up against the best team in baseball right now, the Dodgers and they're playing for the division, and it's really chippy. And we're coming down to the last 10 games of a wild wild year. That's why I shouldn't have to say so. I may put it another way. Like if you've ever been to a music festival, then you know how there are multiple bands to play at the same time, but on different stages, right? So the headliners get the realestate. The artists who were printed up in a smaller fought on the flyer our summer off to the side playing with smaller crowd, But if you've ever been to a music festival, you know that the smaller bands off to the side sometimes put on the better show. Sometimes you want to be off to the side and you want to see what's going on over there. Last night, I could make the argument the Dodgers and Padres put on a better show than the NFL doubleheader. When they were playing back to back on the main stage. If you have not been paying attention, then maybe you did not know last night was in fact. An unstoppable force meeting an immovable object. The unstoppable force Now are the red hot Slam Diego Padres. They welcomed the immovable object. The seven time defending NL West Champ L. A Dodgers to Petco Park.

"Hey welcome back to the doctor podcast five and a half days after the last one came out I can be very specific about that because five and a half days ago my kickstarter launched for the audiobook of surface. The third little brother book which I had to produce independently because I can't sell my audio books on Amazon because they refuse to. Carry anything that's free and audible their audio bookstore. So five and a half days ago I launched the kickstarter I asked you to support it. I emailed everyone who'd ever sent me a fan letter asking them to support it. I spoke to every person who had open. DMZ A mutual of mine on twitter and sent an email to everybody who'd ever bought. An e book or audio book in the Little Brother Series from me you probably heard from me if you're a listener, my guess is you fit into one of those categories, and if so you will see that I am running this kickstarter starter that I am seeking fifteen dollar pre purchases of the otherwise twenty five dollar audiobook of attack surface and. that. You can also get the other audio books in the series and the other e books in the series and that it's all been read by amber, Benson and directed by Cassandra declare and edited and mastered by John Taylor. Williams. Who is listening to me speak these words right now hello John, and in the five and a half days since the kickstarter. Let me hit reload here. I have received pledges of one, hundred, sixty, four, thousand, two, hundred, eighty, four dollars. From three, thousand, seven, hundred and forty, five backers, which is like. Just. Amazing. The dollar some there. That's the headline figure obviously is humbling. Get excited all the money for the e books is not one hundred percent mind seventy percent of it goes my publishers and the little brother audiobook came from Random House. They get eighty percent get some of that back afterwards in the form of royalty but yeah. Money is mine. And that solved. Our financial problems, we are no longer financially precarious for months and months and months to come long enough certainly for to sell my next novel, The Lost Cause, my post green new deal novel that I'm working on. Now I. Expect that that negotiation we'll go very well because impart I'm GONNA be able to talk about how if they by the audiobook rights, we can try crowdfunding it. That's what I want to talk to you about right now. Is what the actual goal here was because the goal was not to make me financially solvent. You know even at our most precarious our family was so much better off than so many more deserving people in this world are facing eviction or living on the streets. People in my city here in Burbank are in much worse shape than I am. And so that's not why I did this, and that's not what I was seeking although I'm glad to have it. The reason I did this is I want to change publishing. Every audiobook sold on Amazon's audible platform comes with dram. You can't opt out of it as the rightsholders, the publisher or the author and Dram is a felony to remove or to traffic and tools for its removal. Even if you own.

He says the alarming rise in transmission rates and little indication from medical experts that campuses, communities or country would gain control of the spread of the virus prior to the start of competition, all factored in. A letter was released as the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that the conference could release a new football season schedule soon. Perhaps within the next week. It would allow for the possibility of a January start date with indoor games only. Just a week

All of us important team separate going crazy. We'd have to return all stars from Princeton. New Jersey is Dr Eddie Claude Junior James. S Mcdonnell Distinguished University professor at Princeton University Hey Eddie welcome back rose more pleasure. excited. We are so happy to have you so happy and joining us from Boston Massachusetts County. Crossley. She's host of W. H is under the radar you're on the radar for here Kelly. Welcome back. I'm so glad to be back and we're happy to have you back so. It has been a minute since the both of you have been on the show it's the first time that you're on the show in two thousand twenty, which is honestly like, wow, I know and a lot has happened since you were on this show, the coronavirus pandemic I became a survivor of the corona virus myself the movement now to defend black lives this extraordinary reckoning that's happening all across the country young people really turning up, and now the twenty twenty presidential election officially heating up amidst all of this it's been intense so Kelly start us off just what's your temperature check? How are you doing like for reals? I'm exhausted I'm exhausted physically and emotionally, and as I wrote about recently I have outraged fatigue and I'm trying to fight it Eddie. How're you doing? I'm holding on I'm just barely holding on actually it's just exhausted like Kelly. Trying to hold on tired of looking at this damn computer screen and really just trying to figure out a way to step away from this moment. You know because I'm drowning in it it's been pretty intense. It's crazy Julia for two people who feel exhausted and kind of drowning in it, I. Mean. We turn to Kelly and two Edita to help us to give context but I appreciate and this show who that we do we do let it all hang out as we used to say back in the nineteen seventies. But the point being about exhaustion I think it's important to recognize that and. Unfortunately, I feel like this level of exhaustion is going to continue because here we go twenty twenty election. And there is now a zoo meeting called the Democratic National Convention DNC which starts this week we. The. People. We the people call the forty eighth quadrennial Democratic National Convention to order. And it goes through Thursday, all our listeners. We're recording this conversation on a Monday afternoon so that you know, but you know the DNC I actually saw this video i. don't know if you saw it on twitter from Nineteen ninety-six, the DNC is starting in everyone's doing the Macarena. Acquit. On. Putting You this big Joyce Event and I remember that actually so it's going viral on twitter. Clinton's yeah yeah claims and ninety six. Oh I saw that. So anyway so they're doing them I got and I was like I remember these conventions and it's supposed to take place in Milwaukee. Obviously because pandemic, it's turned into this entirely virtual format talking about computer screens, Eddie? I'm like, oh So. What we do know is that on Thursday Joe Biden is scheduled to officially accept the nomination from his home state in Delaware on Thursday. On Monday night, the virtual convention featured speakers from former first, lady, Michelle Obama let me be as honest and clear as I possibly can. Donald Trump is the wrong president for our country. He has had more than enough time to prove that he can do the job, but he is clearly in over his head. He cannot meet this moment. He simply cannot be who we need him to be for us. It is what it is to Senator Bernie Sanders at its most basic this election is about preserving our democracy. During, this president's term, the unthinkable has become normal. He has tried to prevent people from voting undermined the US Postal Service deployed military and federal agents against peaceful protesters threatened to delay the election and suggested that he will not leave office if he loses. Is Not normal and we must never treat it like it is but you all know and we have people here who are critical of the Democratic Party like we are of the Republican Party. You've already heard the critique right that a number of the speakers like including Sanders and club HR, and Buddha judge and cory booker, all of them former candidates. So we've heard a lot from these people and one twenty twenty candidate was clearly not invited guests that was Oh let's see Mexican, who represents the largest non white voting block potential voters yes. That would be Latinos and Latinas and yes, they did not invite Julia Castro. Who is the only Latino candidate in the primaries so I mean look there are literally only a handful of Latino or Latina speakers. There are no Muslim speakers scheduled.

The movie of the year is here: Boys State

"Sean Fantasy. And this is the big picture conversation show but the best movie I've seen in twenty twenty. That movie is called boy state. What is boy state? Well, it's a documentary. It is now available on Apple TV plus and I thought it would be appropriate for us to just talk about this film which I think is fascinating and incredible document of life in twenty twenty in many ways. Specifically, the way that we engage with our political system Amanda I wanted to talk to you about it because I know that you like the. Film as well. We're GONNA. Talk a bit about what boy state is the institution, and also what this movie isn't how it captures it but what did you make of it off the top see you saw this movie at Sundance as did our colleague Noam Away and you both raved about it and I didn't get to see that sundance so I caught up with it about six months later with all of the expectation that goes along with you guys being this is the best we've ever seen I was wrapped. This is A. Very documentary that is about each. Summer Camp Robert Graham, and we'll explain the program a bit more. It's Kinda complex. I still have some questions about how boy state the Summer Camp Program works but whatever. And I was just completely in Michigan. It's one of those documentaries where you're like I can't believe you got this on tape and also I can't believe that you've got this on tape and also it speaks so profoundly to the moment in which I'm watching it even though it was filmed during the summer of two, thousand and eighteen. Yell leader in this episode, and you can hear a conversation with me and Amanda mcbain and Jesse Moss the filmmakers behind the movie and they explained a bit about how they captured what you're describing, and there are several moments in this movie that will make you say this is must be scripted. This can't be real. I mean in many ways it seems. Like archetypal narrative, dramatic movie making, but it is very real and boy state. The institution is very real. So what is boy state? It's it is as you say, it's a sort of a summer camp. It's a, it's a summer leadership program I assume you as a as a high achieving young person. You must have been a part of some some programs. Like this I get sent to Arts Camp I. Never did the Politics Camp I did have to go to girl scout camp once even though it wasn't a girl Scout, but this is sponsored by the American Legion and I only really interacted with the American Legion. In that. Sometimes, we had our middle school dances at an American Legion clubhouse. Okay. So the American Legion does sponsor this program they nominate High. School Juniors and they come in the interview and they talk about their idea of the country and patriotism and the idea of public service that means to them, and it's essentially a training program for politicos aspiring Politicos, and that's a fascinating thing growing up I went to basketball camp. I was an aspiring. Professional Basketball player unfortunately I am incredibly slow and can't jump and can't shoot. So that's that was never going to happen for me, and for some people at boys anger, there is a girl state as well. We should say that you know in in most states in this country, they offer this program. There are a lot of people who aspire to kind of public service or at least to get a a sort of a sense of civic duty, which is not necessarily the same thing as public service. And this has been happening since nineteen, thirty seven. And the. There is a long list of famous and accomplished alumni in boys and girls stayed more specifically boy stated won't probably won't surprise people to hear. Just a shortlist of incredibly well known people who participated in this program includes Bill Clinton Dick Cheney. Justice Samuel Alito James Gandolfini my boy. Roger Ebert. Michael Jordan. Tom Cotton. Rush Limbaugh Cory Booker. So you know luminaries or lowlights depending on your point of view of the world. This is quite a quite a list of people there and the program itself is kind of interesting. So essentially, I, feel like we're talking around specifically what it does, but the programs vary by state but in Texas where this movie takes place participants are divided into two groups. The federal and the nationalist and what are the what are these two groups have to do and and how does that set up the Phil Do a lot of things but the film follows the political campaign aspect of boy state and boy state is a week long program in Texas and kind of the climactic event is an election for governor of the state, the boys state of Texas. So these two parties, the federalists in the nationalist, which by the way just already casts a quite a shadow over the whole. The. The documentary because they really they adopt these names as teams, and so they're yelling about being federalists and nationalists and anyway. At they elect. Party chairman's they they kind of do a platform that we should talk about the platform they have primaries and they each eventually select one nominee for the governor's race, and then at the end, there is election and one governor emerges. So you know approximately eleven hundred boys participate in this process, and that means that out of large groups. One two three people have to merge and the reason that this movie happened and the reason that Jesse and Amanda sought to identify a handful of people who'd be significant to the process in the given year that they were shooting is because in two thousand, seventeen Texas boys state legislature voted to secede from the Union and that if that doesn't some American politics in the trump era I don't I don't know what does the fact that it was your teenagers decided they needed to succeed from a program which is already imaginary. Is Perfect, we should note that two thousand seventeen was when the state legislature of Texas successfully voted to see from union. It is apparently a emotion that came up for several years but this time both bodies ratified this action, and of course, that is a an ongoing dialogue in the state of Texas. In the true American experience you know there are many Texans who would like to not be a part of this country maybe not many there but there are certainly some we know that that's the session is an ongoing conversation in some states. Around the country. So the point is, is that boy stayed in many ways reflect the political system or does it? It's I think the nature or nurture question here is essential to this movie and what makes it so fascinating and even when I talk to Amanda and Jesse I, think that they were unwilling to put their thumb on the scale to say what were they felt it lived or died but as I said, this movie is just exceptional and

"In Sixteen Sixty John Locke published his two treatises of government where he set out to resolve the seeming conflict between individual property rights, which he valorize, D- And the Bible Ditto which set out the principle that God had created the Earth and its bounty for all of humanity. How could a Christian claim to own something personally when God intended for everyone to share? His creation logs answer was the labor theory of property. Private property is the result of a human being taking an unclaimed piece of the common property of humanity and mixing it with their labor. Each human owns their body, and thus the Labor of that body creating our property cocktail one part unimproved nature, one part-human sweater the brown mix well, and serve in perpetuity. More than a thousand years before John was born the people of the island of Keke coined the term Aloha, which is president all the languages of the region today. It's an untranslatable word that conveys a beautiful complex blend of emotions and sentiments. So iconic that adherence to the aloha spirit has been Hawaiian state law since one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, six and the nineteen seventies three hundred years after the publication two treaties of Government Hawaiian express their aloha spirit and dish called poke a delicious mix of raw fish served with Seaweed, rice, Greens, roasted, and craft cuckoo not mean and other variations in two thousand twelve. This dish spreads the mainland and mutated further acquiring many new and delicious variants in two thousand, sixteen centuries after Aloha and lock decades after Polka. Zach friedlander founded a restaurant called aloha poke in Chicago, and in the summer of two thousand eighteen friedlander successor Chris Birkenshaw retain the law firm of Olsen and support us limited to threaten Hawaiian shafts operating pokey restaurants insisting that they remove the word Aloha from their business names friedlander defended the company's actions and dismissed criticism as a quote witch hunt and quote fake news. Eventually prompted of Polka to issue a half oust self pitying apology and tobacco off a little from its threats. Reading that apology, you can see the specter of lock haunting every word Friedlander, his staff, and his investors put real work into making a midwestern chain of restaurants identified by the name below. Those unimproved words had been around forever and no one else was building a national empire with them by getting to the idea I and mixing their labor with it. They had transformed the bounty of nature into private property. This odious spectre haunts much of the world today and it has plenty of company for this conception of property rights has sent millions to their graves in seventeen seventy, eight Europeans began to colonize the inhabited continent of Australia who's aboriginal people have lived there for over sixty five, thousand years. These people did not embrace lock in property theories, but they certainly used an improved the land they had inhabited for virtually the entire era of behaviorally modern human existence. The Europeans staunch lock INS had a problem. They want a harvest, the bounty of a new continent, but absent the agreement of the people who already live there. This would be theft by lockie and lights. To solve the conundrum, they deployed a bit of Aloha poke logic. They declared the ancient community helping to be owned by no one they called it terra nullius nobody's land and proceeded to improve it to make it into property meaning these improvements involved acts of genocide against the indigenous people after all, if something is owned by nobody than the people on the land must be nobody. Both finality of Aloha. And the genocidal brutality of terra nullius reveal deep problem lurking in the lock in conception of property. All the stuff that's just lying around is actually already in relation to other people often the kind of complex relation that doesn't lend itself to property like transactions where someone with deep pockets can come along in by thing from its existing quote owner. The Labor theory of property always begins with an active erasure, all the people who created used and improve this thing before me we're doing something Banal and unimportant, but my contribution is the step that move this thing from a useless unregarded comments to a special proprietary finished good. Criticism of this delusion of personal exceptionalism is buttress by of affronted perplexity can't you see how much of my really top notch Labor I blended with as natural resource to improve it who will willingly give their own Labor to future projects. If every time they do loafers, takers common free ride on their new property. This Move continues the erasure. It denies the claims of everyone who came before you as a historical figments. The people coined popularized and nurtured the word aloha or inhabited. The Australasian landmass are stripped to their claims as though they were honeybees whose output is a naturally occurring substance that property belongs to the beekeeper, not the swarm. The sins of settler colonialism are rife with this kind of lock in delusion. Taryn Nullius was doctrine applied by all manner of Europeans to all manner of quote, new worlds. It is also front and center in the most pernicious intellectual property debates the parts of musical composition that Europeans refi melody are eligible for copyright, but the characteristically afro-caribbean elements complex poly rhythm are not has the Beatles. Could appropriate be progressions and rhythms to make new music of about woven tied the hip hop artist who samples the Beatles to make a new composition today. The Beatles worked with UNIMPROVED nature that his arm be while samplers are stealing the property of the Beatles Record Label. But.

"Hi there and welcome back to the Corey Dr a podcast I'm sorry that this is coming a few days like this week I've been having Mike Problems very early on during the plague, our local power substation exploded. Probably. Because they were running short handed and couldn't do routine maintenance, the fireball was visible from several miles away my power supply conditioner was tied to throw it away. And My soundboard where I plug my mic into start Fritz, and it's been getting worse and worse than I tried replacing it with some other equipment none of which ended up working. I've got more equipment on order. John has been tirelessly helping me tech this but in the meantime. Needed some financing to get you a reporting. So I'm hoping that my recording gear holds up because I have a couple of gigs coming up this week. The first is that on the twelfth, which is in two days as I record this Monday afternoon that I'm recording us, I'll be talking with Christopher Brown about failed state his latest novel the third of his novels about a kind of Echo Pakalitha Texas legal thriller comes cyberpunk Thriller Come Eco Thriller they're really Good Books Brown another one in Bruce Sterling's proteges and really is. An amazing writer and a very fun and thoughtful speaker too. So it should be a good event we're doing with book people in Austin, my very favorite bookstores in the whole world, and then on the fifteenth as I mentioned last week, I'm being inducted into the Canadian fiction and fantasy hall of fame, and that's a the when worlds collide convention events free to attend P WANNA. Hear me say all kinds of schmaltzy things and maybe choke up a little. That's the one to come to. You know the drill I have new books. There's an omnibus edition of little brother and homeland that's just come out with an introduction by ED. SNOWDEN makes a handy. Dandy gift they're beautiful and there's also my first ever picture book Posey the Monster slayer delightful book illustrated by Rockefeller, about a little girl who doesn't like to go to bed because it's much more fun to repurpose her toys field expedient monster. Hunting weapons. This is great for her not so great for her parents whose lack of sleep turns them into zombies, and that is the only kind of monster that this little girl posy can't defeat. Yes I am drawing on some personal experience here, and thankfully our daughter is sleeping a little better these days now that she's twelve, I hope you're sleeping K. to I hope your life is chugging along well. So, this week, I'm not GonNa read to you from someone comes to. Town. Because someone on twitter pointed out that I never read my locust column Terra Nullius into this podcast. I think that's because I- podcast a speech I gave that hued very closely to the column that I gave at the Internet archive as part of what they call the grand reopening in the public domain that was ear and change ago when for the first time in seventy years, new works enter the public domain in the United States and they had a party like it was nineteen, twenty, nine I think was the thing now that I think about it that sounds starting to maybe party like nineteen twenty-three. I don't know I can't remember what the actual date was, but I went and gave this talk about the nature of copyright and so-called Intellectual Property afterwards. Some people I really admire said some really kind things about Larry lessig James Boyle, and others so. That went over. Well, the title turned Nullius obviously comes from this idea that settlers colonialists used in the so-called new world. But in particular that phrase came to mind when I spoke in several forums in Australia during the tour for walkaway and in many of those cases I spoke with or opposite clear Coleman who has a very good book by that title Terron Elliot's Clara's on aboriginal person from Australia who is also trains and who wrote a book about the intersection of gender indigenous identity and Australian politics. That is very good and I recommend you. Okay Dan without further ado, I'm going to now re to turn Elias I've got a reduction get out of here because I got a big day ahead of me, I'm going to go into a studio and record a documentary interview for vice they have. Booked the studio over the entire weekend. As I record this I say it's Monday afternoon. No one has been in the studio since Friday been sitting empty I'm GonNa go in masked no one else is going to be there will be a video camera and a screen pointing at me that will interview me and I'm going to use a sterile microphone that I click to my own lapel to talk back it's going to be an adventure. Kind booked me studio around the corner and apparently the century is going to be the cornerstone of the dock. So they have asked me to come in for a very long time two and a half hour. So I gotTA hurry here. So that further ado then turn Elliot's from the March twenty, nineteen issue of Locus magazine..

"George didn't feel very comfortable discussing the family with Oracle that was bills job after some thought he said Orville said I can see that. That makes you unhappy. No one should be unhappy here. I'll see what I can do. Come down to ops tomorrow morning. We'll talk more when George got back to the cabin. Bill was lying on his back on the floor laughing while Tom Climbed all over him. Tom Still babbled but they were real words now. Though nonsensical with his constant talking he reminded George of Joe and that made him even sadder. Georgia never been to ops before. But he knew where it was in a collection of low-slung Prefab buildings hidden behind the topiary sculptures near magic land. He clutched his right thumb nervously as he stood and waited in the reception area for Oracle to come and get him the secretary taken his name and buzzed. Orville and now kept sneaking him. Horrified looks Georgia's family. Were the only of their kind to leave their homeland and join the soft ones. And here at OPS. There were any number of low ranking. Babu's who'd never tell who'd never heard tell of them or go was all smiles and a fusion is he breathed through the Glass. Security door impounded. George on the back George. I'm so glad you came down. He took George by the arm and led him away stopping to wink at the secretary who looked at him with who looked at him with a mixture of disgust. Admiration or Villes office was buried in a twisting maze of door line. Fluorescent lit corridors. Where busy soft ones talk on telephones and clattered on keyboards? He led George through his door into an office. As big as Georgia's cabin Orrville paste and talked. Did I say I was glad you came? I'm glad you came now. Let's talk about Bill Bill's happy he's got what he wants a son he doesn't have to take care of Joe. It's good for him. He paused and looked George. George Naughton okay. There's a problem though. You WANNA SON to only bill won't allow it. It didn't need any comments. George kept quiet. My thinking is bill so busy with Tom. He wouldn't really notice if you were there or not. You're an adult. You can take care of yourself. Do you see where I'm going with this? George assumed it was a rhetorical question. Right what I'm thinking is. There's no reason that both of you shouldn't have your own son. This is pleasure island after all. No one should be sad on pleasure island. You've worked hard and well for us for a long time here. We can take care of you. George Felton uncomfortable sensation in his stomach. A knot of guilt rising. I thought about having another cabin built in the woods. But that's no good. I think you and build your own space so let me bounce my current thought off you. We'll put you up in the new monsters arms. That's the hotel were building for horror zone. It's way ahead of schedule almost finished. Now there's a penthouse suite that can take for as long as you like. It's only temporary just until you and bill have had some time to raise up your son's then we'll get the whole family together back at the cabin. The guilt Rose Higher Choking George. Delury about eating either. I briefed the house. Chef on your tastes and he'll send up three squares every day. Everything a growing boy needs. He flashed a grin and forget about bill. All smooth things over with him. He'll see that it's for the best. Finally George had something to say what about Joe? Orville had been almost dancing as he spoke enchanted with his own words. He pulled up short when George spoke. What about it? I want to live with him again. George said he's gone. You know that. Orrville pointed his finger alongside his ears. Hee Haw Hee haw the monthly ferry. We'll take him to the mainland tomorrow. I don't care about that. George said I want him there? Orrville said I don't think that's such a good idea George. You're going away to concentrate on you. Joe's a handful even now. I don't want you distracted. George said I want Joe. Orville stared at him. George set his face into a blank mask. Finally Orrville said if that's what you want that's what you'll get. George didn't have anything to fetch from the cabin and Orville thought it would be best if he spoke to build a loan so he sent George to the stables to get joe the donkey stables beyond ops at the very edge of the island opposite the docks where the ferries brought new boys in a different kind of boat docked there large utility freighters that brought in everything. The island needed and took away the braying kicking herds of jackasses. The donkey stables. Sorry the donkey's shifted nervously in their stalls. George smelled horse apples in. Hey and heard fidgeting hooves and quiet braying sobs. He wasn't clear on what happened to donkeys when they went back to the mainland. Had an idea that it wasn't very pleasant on the island a sign on the island donkeys. Were prizes a sign. That every boy's wish had been gratified what happened. Afterwards wasn't something they were encouraged to think about. He walked down the glean wooden aisles peering into the stalls looking for Joe finally dark stall in the very darkest corner of the stables. He found him a large pot belly. Jackass who leapt up and braid loudly at him. When he clocked his tongue added Joe he asked softly the donkey braid again and kicked out the stalls door. It was already splintered from many such kicks. George opened the catch and was nearly trampled beneath Joe's hooves as he ran out in a way braying loudly. George chased his brother. He didn't start very fast but once he got going in nursing made him unstoppable he corner Joe at the door that led out to the island. The donkey was kicking at it trying to escape. George locked his strong right arm around Joe's neck. Stop at Joe. He said I'm taking you out with me but you have to stop it. Jolt is rolled madly struggled against George kicking and biting. George waited in silence until the donkey. Tired then using a bridal hanging on the wall whoops. George waited in silence until the donkey tired then used a bridal hanging on the wall joe out of the stables when Joseph Orville waiting for them he went wild again. George cotton by the hind leg dragged him to the ground while Orville danced back with a strange grace. Orval grinned and said I guess he doesn't like me very much. He came forward and darted an affectionate pat. On Joe's haunch job raid loudly and George kept his own counsel or will lead them down a utility or into an electric tram with an open car. George Lead Joe in and held onto his neck. While Orville sped down the utility door. He drove up a service ramp and out into horror zone then to the doors of the newly completed Monsters Arms Georgia. Joe Lived in the monster's arms every morning. Orville paid them visit and snuck. Looks at Georgia's thumbs. They were intact. George wanted to have a son but he couldn't bring himself to do it or visit screw shorter. An herbals manner grew more irritated. Still George had no son one day. He waited until Joe was napping in slipped out through the iron maiden elevator right down into the utility for the tram driver recognized him and took him out to the cabin. The last mile of the utility door was dusty and disused. George leapt off the tram and walked quickly to the cabin. His heart racing. It had been so long since he'd seen bill in Little Tom. He missed them terribly. The little cabin was even smaller than George remembered it and it looked sad sagging and ramshackle. He hesitated at the door. Then feeling stranger knocked there was movement inside but no voices and the door stay shut. George opened the door. It was a disaster. The kitchen cupboards were smashed in the little table knocked over and splintered the bedding scattered and soiled deep shadows collected on the corners. Bill George called softly a shadow stirred and indistinct figure within its depths bill. It's George I missed you. I need to talk with you and confused. The shadow stirred again. George crept forward peering. His old is night dimmed. Bill huddled in the corner racked and wasted. He stared up at George through is filmed with tears. He held up his hands. They had already begun to shape themselves into hooves but George could still see that both his thumbs were gone. His ears were pointed and long. Oh Bill George said his brother. Let out a braying. Saad and George saw he had no tongue. Orrville came looking for them the next morning. Where are the sons George asked him while stroking the donkey's head in his lap? Orrville smile a slightly abashed smile and keeping them safe. I didn't think that bill was in any shape to take care of them. George said I'll take care of them. Bring THEM HERE JOE to. He's in the room. I'll take care of them. All Orville smiled his abashed smile again then gave Georgeanne ironic salute. Yes sir. He said he padded bills haunch and smiled to himself. George didn't know how to respond to irony so he held his brother more tightly eventually. Orville went away and then came back a while after that. He drove an electric cart in the front seat. Three sons bounced Tom. Bright and curious another strong and big a third. Who's little POTBELLY JIGGLED? As he talked and talked and talked in a trailer. Joe Kicked and fought against his bonds. George let him out. I then took the sons to the porch. Joe and bill stared at each other for a long moment. Then bill bright out a long donkey. Laugh Orville look with proprietary satisfaction at the donkey's than at the sons than at George he wag the finger at George as if to say I'll be back for you someday. Then he got into his tram and drove off. George went back inside and made dinner for his family..

"Joe Rolled his eyes which had gone the murky yellow swamp water. Wonderful Right There are better ways to achieve mortality. Bro. I'm designing crawl through for horror zone. You're an earthworm crawling underneath a graveyard. Hits going to be huge maggots as big as horses chasing the guests through the tunnels huge ghost hands grabbing at them we're building a giant tombstone as the Weenie. You'll be able to see it from anywhere on. The island will build out over the midway for horror zone. It's the biggest Rehab. We've done since they brought in electric power as usual. George didn't know what to say to Joe. That sounds very nice. He said Joe rolled his eyes again and started to say something but stopped. When three guests came up to Georgia's booth. George hardly recognize the Mitchell brothers. The youngest was already three quarters donkey so dangerously close that it was a miracle he hadn't been picked up already. He was hunched over in his hands refused into fists. His hair had grown down over his shoulders. And of course main and his lips bold around his elongated jaws the middle and eldest. Were well on their way to the points of their ears poked out from under their hair and they carried themselves painfully forcing their legs. Hips Upright. George flipped over his phone and punched nine one one but left it out of sight below the counter loudly. He said. Come ON OVER BOYS. You look like you can use. One of Georgia's triple dips the best on the midway from the phone. He heard the security operators. Say Thank you George will be along in a moment surreptitiously. He racked the receiver and smiled at the boys. How are you enjoying your stay boys? He said awesome the youngest set around his clumsy teeth. George handed him a cone piled high with floss than started building. Two more for his brothers. Joe smirked at them. George hoped he wouldn't say anything before security. Got There the eldest said. I don't think my brother's feeling too good. Is there a doctor here? I can take him to the youngest face. Sticky with confection kicked his brother. I'm fine he said I want to go on more ride. His brother said we'll go more rides. After we see a doctor the youngest dropped to his knees and cried no. He said hammering his fists on the ground. No no now. George watched an alarm as the boy went all the way over to donkey his cries turn to braise and his short split around his haunches entail his shirt went next and George smoothly vaulted the counter and stood in front of the donkey blocking him from passers by the other two made a run for it. George Snag the Middle One by his collar. But the boy tour free took off down the midway. George looked wildly for security but they still hadn't arrived then. Joe Tore past him moving faster than George had ever seen him go. He caught the boys and stuffed one under each arm kicking and squirming. He grinned ferociously as he pinned them beneath his knees Georgia's feet. He claimed his hands over their mouths. Got Him he said to George. A security team emerged from the Utilit- orb aside Georgia's booth wearing clown makeup and baggy pants. Two of them tranquilize the boys and the third fitted the donkey out with a halter and bit. The clowns slapped the donkeys haunch appreciative. -Ly He's a healthy one. The security team disappeared down the UTILITY DOOR WITH MITCHELL. Brothers two boys and a donkey. George smacked Joe smacked George on the back. Did you see me catch them? Like greased lightning bounty here. I come. George didn't mind sharing bounty with Joe so he just smiled and nodded and went back around to his booth. Bill named his son. Tom Names weren't very important to their people. But the soft ones world demanded them within a week. Tom was eagerly waddling through their cabin tasting. Everything exploring everything. His is shown with curious. Brilliant the clever son of clever son. George Loved Bill Son. He loved to watch Tom as he nodded. They're betting as he dug at the floor in search of GRUBS. Tom Was clearly delighted with his surroundings. George basked and Tom's delight. George could barely. Bill could barely restrain himself from picking. Tom Up and hugging him. Every moment the only time you left George alone with Tom was a few precious moments after each evening's meal when he would duck into the woods to find some new toy for Tom. A crippled chipmunk. A handful of pretty rocks a discarded beer can the sun built bizarre towers out of them then knocked them down. Fit OF GIGGLES Tom. Eight all day long and spoke a steady stream of adorable nonsense. Bill hardly spoke to George. Their evening meals were given over to watching the sun eat. George didn't mind talking to the guests. All Day wore him out. When Tom was two months old joe came by Georgia's booth. Well its final tomorrow. Shut DOWN THE MIDWAY. Too old fashioned. It's only stood this long because some of the older imagineering had an emotional attachment to I told him. That's your demographic not the target demographic so we're knocking it down. Horror zones going to be huge. He skipped off before George could say anything. His ears were long and pointed. It wasn't the first time George noticed it but now he could see that. Joe's hunched over gate wasn't just because of his belly. George built a dozen cones for the guests but his heart wasn't in it. Besides most of the guests already had their hands full of Gummy spiders and snakes from the Action Land Jungle Treats Buffet. His thoughts were full of Joe and he turned them over in his slow cautious manner. Joe is turning into a donkey. He didn't think that one of their kind could turn into a donkey. But this was pleasure. Island indulging vices was dangerous pastime. Here he should tell bill but there was no phone at the cabinet. He couldn't send a runner for him. Because this was family business is shift would end for hours yet and this was too important to wait. Finally he called his lead. I have to get off stage. I'm having a bad day. Technically this was allowed management. Didn't want anyone on stage wasn't one hundred percent but it was something that none of the brothers not even Joe had ever done. The lead was surprised but he sent over a soft one to relieve George Orrville and bill. Were sitting out front of the cabin watching Tom. When George got back he rung his hands as he approached them. Not sure of what to say and whether he should talk in front of. Orville at all. He held his left thumb in his right hand and it comforted him a little bill in order were so engrossed in. Tom's acts bill and Orville were so engrossed in Tom's antics that they didn't even notice George until he cleared his throat. Orrville raised his eyebrows and looked significantly at bill. I just saw Joe George said on the midway his ears pointed and he's walking all hunched over. I give him a few days at the most before. He's all the way gone. George held his breath waiting for bills reaction to bad. Bill said it was inevitable. I suppose a child of the tongue. What was father thinking? Orville smiled and puff did his pipe. Don't you worry about George? Joe Is going to be much much happier focused. If you'd like I can bring him out here to live little Tom Pony rights. Bill said I don't think that's such a good idea. Joe's too wild play with a child or we'll put a hand on his shoulder. You'd be amazed at how docile he'll become. Bill scooped up Tom who was up to his waist. Now and who likes to grab onto bills knows we'll see then. He retreated into the cabin with his son. Orval turn to Georgia and said you've probably heard that we're taking down the midway tomorrow. The others are all being reassigned until the Rehab is done. But I thought I'd see if I could get you a couple of months off. You could stay here and play with Tom. It's not every day you get to be a new uncle. Orrville had always taken obvious pleasure in the transformation of boys into donkeys. It was the whole why of pleasure island after all. Orville seemed especially pleased tonight and George that he was as surprised about bill as George was well. The dodger really worked up about something. Aren't they and apparently there is not another person in my house. Who can quiet them right now okay. I think they're done George not knowing what to say to any of it said nothing like they literally waited seconds to bark. I could have just paused at the end of that section. It didn't take long for George to start missing the midway stuck at the cabin with bill and Tom. He sat against an outside wall and tried not to get in the way. He prepared meals in silence. Taking a long time in the woods gathering up choice morsels bill and Tom. Eight on the floor away from the table. Bill chewed the tougher morsels first and then put them in. Tom's mouth with his crippled left. Hand most of the time. Neither of them took any notice of George one day he prepared a whole day's worth of meals and left them on the table then walked to the Hewlett then walked to the utility at the other side of the woods. He boarded a tram in road to the old midway entrance. The midway was fenced in with tall plywood sheets and construction. Crews bustled over the naked skeletons of the new horror zone. Heavy machinery groaned and crashed nothing but the distant silhouettes of action land skyline were familiar. George tried to imagine working here for years to come and overwhelming. Tiredness weighed him down. He took the tram back to the cabinet. Stripped off his clothes. They were browner than ever. His arms felt weak and tired. He suddenly knew that he would never have a son of his own. Bill and Tom were playing out front of the cabin. He sat in his usual spot against the wall and watched them bill. He said softly yes. Bill said when will I have a son of my own? Bill always knew the answers. Bill gathered tom up to his chest unconsciously while he thought I suppose that once. Tom has grown. You could take some time off and have a son of your own to his own surprise. George said I want to have a son now. Bill said that's out of the question. George we're too busy with Tom on hearing bills annoyed tone. Tom Leaned into him. George said I'm not busy. I am old though if I don't have a son soon I won't be able to care for it until it's old enough to care for me. Bill said you're thinking father we're living with the soft ones now. Orval wants to make sure that you and your son will be fine until he's grown. George never want arguments with bill. He went inside the cabin and set out dinner. Orrville visited the brothers the next morning he talked he chops Tom under the Chin and shook hands with bill then he took George out into the woods for a walk. Your brother tells me you want the son of your own. He said George nodded and stooped to put a small Mossy log in his basket..

"Said to the boys you'll love the sport tae-seon chairs are shaped like giant catcher's mitts and the beds are giant. Air Jordan's and a sweet comes with a regulation half court what name should have put the reservation over. What name should I put the reservation under the eldest said Tom Mitchell? George made the reservation. You're all set. He said the monorails run right into the hotel lobby. Every ten minutes. Anyone with a name tag can show you to the nearest stop. Here's a tip. Try The football pens hereto. It's a fried pizza turnover as big as a football with beef jerky laces. It's my favorite. I WANNA football. The youngest said. We'll have it for dinner. The eldest said looking off at the skyline of coaster skeletons in the distance. Let's want some rides. I George beamed is eighty. It's grin at them as they left then his face went slack and he went back to wiping down the surfaces. A moment later a hand reached across the counter and plucked the cloth from his grip. He looked up startled into JOE's grinning face. Unlike his brothers Joe's face was all sharp angles. Small Teeth. Nobody knew a child of a tongue was supposed to look like but George. It always suspected that Joe wasn't right even for a third son. Big Guy Joe shouted working hard. George said yes. He stood patiently waiting for Joe to give him the cloth back. Joe held it over his head like a standard dancing back out of reach. Even though George hadn't made a grab for it. George waited. Joe Walked back to his countering. Gave it back? We're dozing the freak zone. Joe said in a conspiratorial whisper. He put a spin on. We're making sure that George knew he was including himself with the island's management really. George said neutrally. Yeah we're GONNA flatten that sucker. Start fresh and build us a new theme land. I'm a strategic project consultant. By the time it's over I'll be an imagine dear. George knew that the lands on Pleasure Island were flattened and rebuilt on a regular basis as management work to stay ahead of the light speed boredom threshold of the mainland. Still he said. Well Joe. That's marvelous. I'm sure you'll do a fabulous job. Joe Sneered at him. Oh I know I will. We all do just fabulous jobs brother. Some of US just have fabulous jobs to do. George refused to rise to the bait. He can always outweighed Joe. Joe Said we're thinking of giving it a monster. Theme Monsters are testing very high with eleven to fourteen this year. Dragons Ogres cyborgs. You know we may even do a walk through there. Hasn't been one of those here since the sixties George didn't know what Joe wanted him to say. He said that sounds very nice. Job gave him a pitying look and then his chest started ringing. He extracted a slim phone from his shirt pocket and turned away a moment later he turned back gotta go. He said meeting with Woodrow and Orville down at ops alarm bells went off in Georgia's head. Shouldn't bill go along if you're meeting with Orville Joe Sneered and then took off at a fast clip down the midway? George watched him until he disappeared through one of the access doors. Bill was clearly upset about it. George couldn't help but feel responsible. He should have called bill as soon as Joe told him he was meeting with Orville. But he'd waited until he got home he'd been home for hours and Joe still wasn't back. Bill picked absently at the dinner. He'd made and Fred. He didn't say how Orville found out. Bill asked George shook his head mutely. Why didn't he invite me? Bill asked I always handle negotiations for us? George could eat the more. Bill fretted the more he could need. It was a long dark. It was long dark outside hours and hours after Joe should have been home bill fretted. George stared out the window and Joe didn't come home then. An electric carts headlights swept up the trail to their cabin. The Lights Dazzled George so he couldn't see who was driving. Bill joined him at the window and squinted. It's Joe Orrville. He said George squinted to but couldn't make anything out. He took bills word for it. In joint him. Outside it was indeed or villain. Joe Orrville was driving. Joe Was lawing drunkenly beside him or shook hands with bill and nodded to George lifted. Joe Out of the cart and carried him inside when he got back or villain bill. Were staring calmly into each other's eyes. Each waiting for the other to say something or villas dressed in his working clothes a natty white suit with a sports shirt underneath his bald head gleamed in the moonlight his fleshy unreadable face ruddy in the glow from the cabin door. George bit his tongue to keep from speaking he's drunk or Senate last Orville. Didn't beat around the Bush. I can see that bill said. Did you get him drunk yes I did? We were celebrating. Bills is narrowed. So you know orrville smiled. Of course I know I set it up. I thought you'd approve. Joe Clearly needed something to keep him out of trouble. Bill said this will keep him out of trouble. Oroville lean against the carts bumper pulled out a pipe stuffed it and lit. He puffed added and watch the smoke. Wisp away in the SWAMP BREEZES. Joe's going to really like life with the imagine ears their management's precious darlings who can do no wrong anything they ask for. They get there won't be any more discipline problems. Bill said why. Not Orville grinned without showing his teeth. Where there's no discipline there are no discipline problems. He can work whatever hours he wants. He'll have access to anything. He needs budget staff and office. Whatever it's his dream job bill said I don't like this. George wondered why not it sounded pretty good to him. Orrville puffed at his pipe like it or not. I think you'll have a hard time convincing joe not to do it. He's sold. Bill went back into the cabin and close to the door. He took that well. Don't you think Orrville asked? George said suppose so Orrville said is everything working out all right for you shifts. Okay Co workers. George said everything's fine. Thank you ORRVILLE. Tapped his pipe out on the bumper. Then got back into the cart all right then. Goodnight George. George started cooking dinner for two more and more Joe spent the night in a suite at one of the hotels working late. George didn't know what sort of work he was doing but he sure seemed to enjoy it. He hardly came back to the cabinet. All the first time he'd stayed out all night. Bill had gone back to the island and gotten Orrville out of bed to help him search after that Joe started sending out a runner. Usually some poor ops training to tell them he wasn't coming back for dinner eventually. He stopped bothering and bill stopped worrying one night a month after. Orville had come out of the Cabin George. One night a month after Orrville had come out to the cabin. George slathered a muskrats carcass. With Manny's lemon lemon and dragonfly eggs and set it out for him and Joe. Bill hardly eight which was usually a signal that he was thinking. George left him half of the dinner and waited for him to speak. Bill picked his way through the rest then pushed his plate away. George cleared it and brought them both. Mason jars full of muddy water from the swamp outback. Bill took his jar out front of the cabin and leaned against the wall stood out into the night sipping George joined him. We're getting old. Bill said at last every night the inside of my uniform. Black George said mine too. We're getting very old. I think that you are at least thirty and I'm pretty sure that I'm twenty five. That's old our father told me that he thought he was fifty year. He died and he was very old for one of us. George Thought of their father on his deathbed eating the food they chewed for him is nearly blind skin crazed with cracks. He was very old. George said Bill held his two whole thumbs. Bill held his two whole hands. Let me try this one more time. Bill held his two whole hands up against the stars. When father was my age he had two sons. Can you remember how proud he was of us? How proud he wasn't himself. He done well enough that he could lose both his thumbs and still know that his sons would take care of. George shifted inside. He'd been thinking about sons to. I've wanted a son since we came to the island. Bill said I never did about it because I couldn't take care of Joe and son. Bill turned to look George. I think Joe's finally taking care of himself. George didn't know what to say. If Bill had a son then he couldn't they couldn't both stop working to raise their sons but bill always made the decisions for them. George didn't know what to say so he said nothing. I'm going to have a son. Bill said bill did it the next night. He told Orrville that he'd need a month off and after eating dinner George made for them. He made a nest of earth and blankets on the floor of their cabin. George Sat in the corner and watched bill. Is he stared at his thumbs. It was the most important decision one of their kind. Ever made a clever son of the left hand or a strong son of the right. George knew that his son would come from the left hand in the world. His father had put them into cleverness was far more important than strength after all. Bill was having the first son. Bill put his clever thumb in his mouth and slowly slowly bit down. George felt muddy tears pricking at his eyes bills. Hand coursed with silty blood. He ignored it and used his strong right hand to take the severed thumb from his mouth. And Bet it down with infinite care in the nest. He built George cautiously moved forward to pure at the thumb which was already moving blindly in its nest twisting like a Grub. Bill looked on his eyes shining. It's perfect George. Breathed George Felton uncharacteristic welling up inside him and he put his arm around bill shoulders then building into him and said Thank you George. This family wouldn't exist without you. They both slept curled around the nest that night by morning the thumb had sprouted tiny arm and leg buds and inched itself blindly around the nest. George marveled at it before going to work. Joe Stopped by stand that day. His belly was bigger than ever and his skin was crackling. Like their fathers had big guy. He shouted vaulting the counter into Georgia's stand. Where's bill today? He wasn't at his post. George said Bill had a son last night.

"Missed dinner. George said I had more important things to do. Joe said I was out with an imagine near. George stared hard at him. What did the imagine your want? Is there trouble Joe gave a deprecating laugh? Why do you always think there's trouble? The Guy wanted to chat with me. He likes me wants to get to know me. His name is woodrow. He's in charge of a whole operations division and he was interested in what I thought of some of his plans. He stopped and waited for George to be impressed. George knew what the pause was for. That's very good. You must be doing a good job for your lead to mention you to him. That little prick. He hates my guts. Woodrow's building a Special Operations unit out of lateral thinkers. He wants new blood creativity. He says I have a unique perspective. Did you talk to Orville? Orrville was the soft one who brought them from their father's shack to the island and he was their mentor and advocate inside. It's Byzantine politics. Bill had confided to George that he suspected Orville was of a different species from the soft ones. He certainly seemed to know. More about Georgia's kind than a soft one had any business knowing Joe Torre Hunt from the carcass on the rickety kitchen table and stuffed into his mouth around that he mumbled something that might have been yes and might have been no. It was Joe's favorite stratagem and it was responsible for the round belly that bulge dope beneath his skinny chest. Joe Torre way more than half of the meat and made for the door. Woodrow wants to meet with me again this morning. He don't wait up for me tonight. He left the cottage and set off toward the tram stop. Bill rolled over on his bedding and said I don't like this at all. George kept quiet. Bills Voice surprised him. But it shouldn't have. Bill was clever enough to lie. Still and feign sleep so that he could overhear Joe's conversations where George would have just sat up and started talking. Orrville should know about this but I can't tell if it would make him angry if it made him angry and he punished Joe. It would be our fault for telling him then. We won't tell him. George said Bill held up his hand. But if we don't tell him and he finds out on his own he may be angry with us then we should tell him. George said but Joe when woodrow may not get along after all and if that happens the whole thing will end on its own. Then we won't tell him George said but if they do get along then they may do something that would make orrville angry. Bill looked expectantly George then we should tell him. George said uncertaintly. I don't know bill said I haven't decided George knew that this meant that bill would have to think on it and so he left him. He had to catch the tram to make it to his shift anyway. The soft one with the six to noon shift left as soon as George arrived without a word George was used soft ones not having anything to say to him and preferred it that way. He was better off than bill. Soft ones always wanted to talk to bill and he hated it since they never had anything to say to bill. That bill wanted to know the weather needed. No discussion bill said and as for the complaints about the shifts lead. Well one soft one was just about the same as any other and Orville had told them that. At the end of the day they worked for him. Not for any lead. Joe Talk Joe. Liked talking to the soft ones. Joe Likes to talk period. He told the soft ones lies about their childhood in the shack with their father and told them about how his brothers tormented and even talked about the weather when he got back home he told his brothers all over again everything he told the soft ones George and memorize the sap manual when they came to the island five years before it clearly said the floor of the booth would be disinfected every three hours and the surfaces polished clean and the pots and machines refilled the soft one with the six to noon. Shift never did any of these things which could get him disciplined by their lead. But George didn't complain. He just wiped and disinfected and restocked when he arrived even though he had to be extra careful with the water so that he didn't wash himself away. Boys ran up and down the midway baking in the midday sun. They reminded George of the boys he'd gone to school with after the social worker had come to his father shack. They teased him to begin with but he just stood with his hands at his sides until they stopped every time he started a new grade or a new kid came to the school. It was the same. They tease him or hit him or throw things at him and he'd stand strong and silent until they stopped even if it took months. His teachers quickly learned that calling on him and classmates standing an awkward silence while he sat stoic and waited for them to call on someone else. The social worker could make him go to school with the soft ones but she couldn't make him act like George watched the boys carefully as carefully as he had when he stood silently in the courtyard. Whoops George watched the boys carefully as carefully as he had when he stood silently in the school yard not seeming to watch anything he was better at spotting donkey than any of the soft ones. When a boy was ready to turn George could almost see the shape of the donkey super employs on. Who when a boy was ready to turn. George could almost see the shape of the donkey superimposed on the boy and he radio to keep to pick up the donkey. Come morning he got a bonus for each when he spotted and according to bill it had accumulated to a sizeable nest egg. George looked at the inventory and decided that the fudge was getting a little long. In the tooth he'd start pushing fudge nut dips and by the end of his shift. The TUB would be empty and he'd be able to give it a thorough cleaning and a refill from fresh stock. Hey guys he called. The three boys is anybody hungry. He dipped to floss and held it up so that it used fudge down his wrist. The boy shyly approached his booth George new from their manner that they were new to the island. Probably just picked up from a video arcade or laser tag tent on the mainland that afternoon. They didn't know what to make of their surroundings. That was clear. Step right up. He said I don't bite. He smiled a smile. He practiced in the mirror when that shaped his soft flexible. Features into a good natured. Expression of idiotic fund cautiously. The boys came forward. They were the target age. Eleven to fourteen and they'd already accumulated some merch baseball. Hats and fanny pack made from neoprene and tropical fish colors emblazoned with the island's logo marks character trademarks. They had the beginnings of dark circles under their eyes and they dragged little with low blood sugar. George dipped to more and distributed them around the eldest. Atto headed kid near the upper age. Range said Mr. We haven't gotten any money. What are these cost? George laughed like a freight train. It's all free sunny free as air courtesy of the management as a reward for very special customers like you. This was scripted but the trick was to sell the line like it was fresh. The boys took the cones from him timidly but ate ravenously. George gave them some logos serve to wipe up with and ground the fudge into his wrists and forearms with one of his own. He looked at his watch and consulted the laminated timetable taped to the counter. Thirteen hundred H which meant that. The bulk of the guests would be migrating towards action. Land in the dinosaur rides and it was time to push the slightly down at the heels freak zone to balance the crowds. You boys like roller coasters. He said the youngest they were similar enough. In appearance and distant enough ages to be brothers. Spoke up yeah. The middle elbowed him and the youngest flipped the middle of the bird. Well if you follow the mid way around this curve to the right and go through the big clown mouth you'll be in the freak zone. We've got a fifteen story. Coaster called the obliterated that loops fifty times in five minutes running over ninety five miles per hour. You Hurry you can beat the line. He looked the youngest in the eye. At the start of the speech then switched to the middle when he talked about the line. The youngest started vibrating with excitement and the middle looked pensive and then to the eldest said sounds. Good Hunt Tom. The eldest said we have even found out where we're sleeping yet. Maybe we can do the right afterwards. George winked at the youngest. Then said don't worry about that kids. I'll get that sorted out for you right now..

"Hey nerds I'm well wheaton and you are hearing me talk. It's Monday April thirteenth. Two Thousand Twenty and Goodness I've been doing this quarantine for like almost I think almost six weeks. It's been awhile for those of you. Who are listening for the very first time Since we started our social distancing and our safer at home initiative I have been grabbing public domain works of speculative fiction and reading and releasing them as free audiobooks. Once or twice a week. I've mostly been going through the Internet archive and grabbing old work that are out of copyright and I had this thought over the weekend and I reached out to my friend Cory doctor Oh Corey is an accomplished and a highly respected science fiction author and a digital rights activists and just an incredible human being and I said Hey. I've been reading all the stuff from the twenties and thirties. And I wondered if you knew. Is there anything from the sixties and seventies and he said? Yeah actually there is and he gave me a couple of recommendations and I said Hey as long as I have your attention. I know that you make all of your work available with the creative. Commons license I know that we have worked together professionally before. Corey has hired me to read some of his audio books In the past and it's been tremendous we have a wonderful working relationship and And and I said I I know that you probably have audio of all of your books but I would love to read one of your stories because I think you're a great author and it would be fun to read something that is a little more contemporary than some of these works that I've been releasing and he said sure. Go ahead take anything you want so I started looking through Corey's a bibliography and I settled on a short story. That is from his book. A place so foreign and eight more. It was originally published in September. Two thousand three by four walls eight windows press and this is a story called return to pleasure island It was originally published in realms of fantasy in August of nineteen ninety nine then it was collected in a place so foreign and eight more in two thousand three and now it is being read By me for free here is a note that Corey included with this file at project. Gutenberg I'm going to read it in its entirety because I think it is awesome and inspiring and then I am going to get out of your way and let you listen to the story which I sincerely hope you enjoy so this is a note about this story from Dr. Oh this story is from my collection a place so foreign and eight more published by four walls eight windows press in September two thousand three. I S Bien one five six eight five eight two eight six two Korean. I have a history of him making me read long strings of numbers. I released the story along with five others under the terms of creative Commons license. That gives you the reader a bunch of rights that copyright normally reserved for me the Creator. I recently did the same thing with the entire Texas. My novel down out in the Magic Kingdom available that crap hound dot com slash down and it was an unmitigated success. Hundreds of thousands of people downloaded the book. Good News and thousands of people bought the book also good news. It turns out that as near as anyone can tell distributing free electronic versions of books is a great way to sell more of the paper editions while simultaneously. Getting the book into the hands of readers who would otherwise not be exposed to my work. I still don't know how it is. Artists will earn a living in the age of the Internet. But I remain convinced that the way to find out is to basic science. That is to do stuff and observe the outcome. That's what I'm doing here. The thing to remember is that the very worst thing you can do to me. As an artist is to not read my work to let it languished in Obscurity and disappear from posterity. Most of the fiction I grew up on is out of print and this is doubly true for the short stories. Losing a couple of bucks to people who have bought the book save for the availability of the free electronic texts is no big deal at least when compared to the horror that is being irrelevant and unread and luckily for me. It appears that giving away the text for free gets me more paying customers than it loses me. You can find the canonical version of this file at CRAP HOUND DOT com slash place slash download dot. Php If you'd like to convert this file some of their format and distributed you have my permission provided that you don't charge money for the distribution you keep the entire text intact including this notice the license below and the Meta data at the end of the file. You don't use a file. Format that has drm or copy protection or any other form of use restriction. Turned on if you'd like you can advertise the existence of your edition by posting a link to it at CRAP HOUND DOT com slash place slash. A whole bunch of Zeros. The number fourteen. You're not going to do that. You're listening to ninety bucks but I included all of it This is released under the Creative Commons by MD NC. Onepointoh license attribution. No derivative noncommercial boy. That's a lot of legalese. But isn't that cool at Correy says about obscurity being such a threat to the artist. So much more of a threat than someone taking your work and not giving money for it. Listen I love it when you give me money from my work. It feels validating and helps me feed my family. It is how survive as an artist but the only way people are GonNa do that is if they know I exist. The only way people are going to buy Corey's books if they know Corey exists so hopefully today he and I are teaming up on something that helps both of us sell books sell podcasts. Create fans do the sorts of things that artists have been doing forever and ever and ever to build community? So thank you for being part of this community and I sincerely hope you enjoy return to pleasure island from a place so foreign and eight more return to pleasure island by Corey. Dr George twiddle his thumbs his booth and watched how the brown clay knuckles danced over. Top of one another not as supple as they had once been his thumbs no longer the texture of wet clay on a Potter's wheel. More like Klay. After it had been worked too exhausted crackling Brittleness he reached into the Swirling Vortex of cotton candy machine with his strong right hand and caught the stainless steel sweep arm the engines wind and he felt them strain against his strong right arm. Like a live thing struggling to escape a trap still strong. He thought still strong and he released the sweep arm to go back to spinning sugar into flaws. A pack of voice sauntered down the midway laughing and calling bouncing high on sugar. In g stresses one of them peeled off from the group and ran to his booth still laughing at some cruelty. He put his palms on Georgia's counter and pushed against it using them to lever his little body and a high speed pogo. Hey Mister he said how about some three color Squirrel Squirrel. That's an entirely different story. Hey Mister he said about some three color. Swirl sprinkles George Smile and knocked the rack of paper cones with strong right. Elbow jostled it so one cone spun high in the air and he caught it in his quick left. Hand Ride Up. He Sang and flip the cone into the floss machine. He spent a beehive of pink. Then layered with stripes of blue and green he reached for the nipple that dispense to the sprinkles but before he turned it spaghetti said. Are you sure you don't WanNa dip to Fudge butterscotch strawberry? The boy bounced even higher so that he was nearly vaulting the counter. All three all three he said George expertly spiraled the floss through the dips then apply to thick crust of sprinkles. Open your mouth kid. He shouted with Realistic Glee. The boy opened his mouth wide. So that the twinkling lights of the mid way reflected off his back molars and the pool of saliva. On his tongue. Georgia's quick clever. Left hand dipped a long handled spoon into the hot fudge then flipped the sticky gob on high arc that terminated perfectly in the boys open mouth. The boy swallowed in laughed Guli. George handed over the dripping confection in his strong right hand and the boy plunged his face into it when he world and ran to rejoin his friends. George saw that his ears were already getting longer and is delighted. Laugh had sounded a little like a bray. A job well done. He thought and watch the rain spattered. The spongey rubber cobbles of the midway. George was supposed to go off shift at midnight. He always showed up promptly at noon but he rarely left as punctually. The soft one who had the midnight to six shift was lazy and late and generally staggered in twelve. Thirty grumbling about his tiredness. George knew how to deal with the soft ones though his father had brought him up surrounded by them so that he spoke without his father's thick accent so that he never inadvertently crushed their soft hands when he shook with them and so that he smiled. Good naturedly and gave up a realistic facsimile of sympathy when they griped perennial gripes. His father how wise the old man had been and how proud and how stupid Georgia Chuck does uniform backstage. Toss it into a laundry hamper noting with dismay how Brown the insides were. How much of himself had eroded away during his shift? He looked at his clever left thumb and his strong right thumb and tasted they're good earthy tastes and then put them away. He dressed himself in the earth colored dungarees and work shirt that his own father had stolen from a laundry line when he left the ancestral home of Georgia's people for the Society of the soft ones. He boarded a cast member. Tram that ran through the utilities underneath pleasure island's midway and stared aimlessly at nothing as the soft ones on. The tram gambled away as the trams sped away to the cast housing and then it was just him and the conductor all the way to the end of the line to the cottage he shared with his two brothers bill and Jo. The conductor wished to a good night when he debunked and he shambled home. Bill was already home napping in the pile of blankets. All three brothers shared in the back room of the cottage. Joe Wasn't home yet even though his shift finished earlier than theirs he never came straight home instead. He wandered backstage watching the midway through. The People's jobs lead had spoken to George about it and Georgian spoken to Joe. But you couldn't tell Joe Anything. George thought of how proud his father had been having three sons three George the son of his strong right thumb and bill. The son of his clever left thumb and Joe Joe the son of his tongue an old man's folly that left him wordless for the remainder of his..

"Greetings fellow shut INS. It IS CORY DR O. Reporting from well same place. I always report from my garage. Which is awesome my office because I do this every week. The difference being that my wife and daughter are also at home and that we're all stuck indoors just like you so far we are all well. I have friends and other cities who are not and those are cities where the healthcare has been overwhelmed and they are sheltering in place with acute symptoms and well. I'm a little worried about them. I hope you are staying safe. Please honor the shelter in place orders. Corentin orders social distancing. Help us all get through this as quickly as possible. It kind of puts my own worries and perspective albeit not without dispelling them. I have three books out in twenty twenty and I had something like six book tour in the offing Canada the US UK and Germany. I be surprised if any of them happened at this point writer friend of mine said well. That's the same thing everyone's going through at least you're good at this. Internet thing and maybe that's true but Boy We are really counting financially on these books in our home. And it is a worrisome thing so please bear with me while I tell you about these books before. I do this week's reading on July. The seventh tour books will reissue homeland and little brother. And these have a new introduction by none other than Edward Snowden on July the Fourteenth Tour Book Sister Company for second also Macmillan Company will publish my very first picture book the book called. Posey the monster slayer and it's been pointed out to me that I have yet to mention the illustrators name on this podcast which is a horrible oversight because he did an amazing job his name is Matt Rockefeller and it is a spectacular looking book. It's about a little girl called. Posey like my daughter who is obsessed with monsters and every night her parents. Tucker in and rather than going to bed. She tears apart her super girly toys and repurposes them as field expedient monster killing weapons and her parents keep having to come in and say go to bed because each one of her monster battles keeps them up and gradually they turn into zombies because they're not getting enough sleep and they're the monster she can't defeat except all they do when they vanquish her is Tucker in. It's a cute bedtime stories kind of book and Matt Really Did a really good job capturing that universal monsters classic look that I love so much and that Scooby Doo Palette that I love so much it is really the book I always dreamt of writing and reading to my kid so I'm very excited to see it. Finally coming out in theory. Both of these books are coming out in time for COMECON and in theory. I'M GONNA BE AT COMECON presenting both of these books in practice. Who knows and then the third book that's coming out is attack surface. It's the third little brother Book and I am actually spending the rest of the week. Virtually in a studio with Amber Benson. She's going to be in her home studio. You might know her from well. My earlier audiobooks like walkaway but you also might know her from the monster slayer and also from her. Outstanding novels amber is going to be in her home. Studio are directors and producers at Sky Boat Media will be in their studio. And I'm going to be here in my garage. And we're all going to be virtually linked up while amber reads the book and then we're sending it off to John Taylor Williams who is mastering this episode mastered several or my audiobooks. And he's going to master the audiobook for attack surface. What else is going on? Well you may have noticed. I'm not at Boeing Boeing anymore It's a long story but I wish them all well. I'm doing my own thing these days. It's called pluralistic dot net. And it's a real throwback to the kind of blogging. I love best logging where there's business model where it's just about sharing the things you think are important and try to explain to others why you think that stuff is important if you pluralistic dot net. You'll find a daily blog with no ads no tracking black on white type. No pop ups. Pop unders no roll downs. No video just words if you prefer to get all of that as a newsletter there's a newsletter version called the pluralist and it is likewise plane tax tracking. No pop-ups no read receipts. Nothing it's just shows up in your inbox and if you are unfed averse and prefer not to use twitter and want to stay away from monopoly platforms. You can follow along at at pluralist at Mamat Dot F. R. M. A. O. T. Dot F. R. That's the quadrant her dinette server. So that's where you can find me these days. So this week for the podcast. I'm going to read you a column. I wrote for Persky. Call data the new oil or potential for a toxic oil spill. And they commissioned that from me and I wrote an essay about the issues with data over collection and the story. We've told ourselves about why it might be a good idea to collect data and how thin that story is wearing.

No more than that keep going. I said more. It seems impossible that used pair soap ever our sold a single cake of the stuff but it must have because slogans like this are all over the fossil record of our advertising printed in ten foot tall letters on the sides of old buildings pictured and delicate engravings old numbers of Collier's and the Saturday evening post over time though through repetition through disappointments through experience. Agreeance we stopped responding to use pair soap. We became a near to it. Adapted Remember Farmville. One day there was no Farmville and then there was an all. Your friends wanted you to water their cows and fertilize their chickens. Your kids your spouse threw money at the game trapped in a seemingly escape proof limbic dopamine loop and then poof no more Farmville. I mean it exists. And there's a diehard audience for it but it is no longer a social phenomenon no more than beanie babies or pokemon go is Zinger. Share price fell off a cliff in two thousand twelve and it never came back. It's not coming back. Farmville is an unregulated low-yield Casino. Game Casino Games use cognitive traps that were all susceptible to it. First and that at some small number of US never adapt to the first time he played a slot machine you probably found it. weirdly irresistibly compelling a few dollars in the penny slots or a few thousand dollars in the dollar slots later. You probably started to find slots weirdly terribly boring. Not everyone had this reaction of course people. In the fifth author six sigma of Slot Machines Susceptibility. Go Out and buy adult diapers and gloves to prevent blisters mortgage. Their houses raid their kids college funds and Hawk Their Mothers Wedding rings. WCHS slots are very high yield and so the slot machine industry can sustain itself by exploiting the vulnerability of tiny minority of the population. Because those whales Wales will pump so much money into the machines that they make up for all the rest of the world who quickly adapted to the Slot Siren Song until it is damped down to a distant refrigerator. Hum But slots are regulated. There are cognitive tricks that slot machines are not allowed to play games they could pull with payouts and odds by contrast zingy games like Farmville have no limits on the tricks. They can pull their games not gambling so they can pull out all the stops however Zinger Games are also very low yield zingers ability to deploy the whole Palette of addictive. Dark designed patterns may netted a few more players who offer the online equivalent of adult diapers empty magnum bottles of mountain dew strategically placed near the computer chair. I'm guessing but the vast majority of US develop calluses over the soft attentional tissue. That Zinger has figured figured out how to tickle. Ziemba is left without the ongoing funds to pay the kinds of RND talented takes to locate and exploit new soft spots and their existing diehards. Either run out of money develop resistance get poached by better-heeled competitors or hang in there in dwindling numbers as Inga circles the drain. I advise selling your stock doc. Now when a new attentional soft spot is discovered the world can change overnight. One day everyone you know is signal boosting re tweeting and posting up worthy headlines. Like this video might hurt to watch luckily might also explain why or most of these people do the right thing. But the guys at the end I wish I could yell at them The style was compelling it I them reductive and simplistic than annoying now. It's ironic at best. Some people are still definitely susceptible to to the this is the most inspiring yet depressing yet hilarious yet horrifying yet heartwarming Grad speech but the rest of US adapted and these headlines Bounce off of our attention unlike pre penicillin. Bacteria getting batted aside by our twenty-first-century immune systems. There is a war for your attention and like all adversarial real scenarios. The sides develop new countermeasures and then new tactics to overcome those countermeasures. The Predator carves the prey. The prey carves the Predator to get a sense of just how far the state of the art has advanced since Farmville fire up. Universal paperclips the free browser game from game designer Frank Luntz which challenges you to balance resource acquisition timing and resource allocation to create paperclips progressing by purchasing upgraded paper clip production and paper clip marketing tools. Until eventually eventually you produce a sentient. Ai that turns the entire universe into paperclips exterminating all. Life Universal paperclips makes Farmville seem about as addictive active as candy land literally from the first click it is weaving and attentional net around your limbic system carefully reeling and releasing your dopamine with the skill of a master master fishermen universal paper clips. Doesn't just suck you in it harpoons. You I lost a half day to universal paper clips and then abruptly blake. It's spell was broken. The attentional callous had developed and the tender spots that lawns had targeted with his proof of concept had been armored against those particular attacks. The attention wars have real consequences for our daily lives the entire fake news. FACEBOOK twitter bought scandal is but a skirmish in a wider. Attention attention war. I'll be at one with global geopolitical and potentially thermonuclear consequences but today's weaponized attention is tomorrow's ghost add Cambridge Cambridge Analytica. The persuasion and manipulation company backed by billionaire trump supporter. Robert Mercer claimed it used facebook targeting to deliver both Brexit and the two thousand sixteen presidency presidency and many people take them at their word. I'm more relaxed about Cambridge Analytica than most of my friends. I because I always take sales brochures with a grain grain of salt and when Robert Mercer who is in the business of taking money in exchange for changing the minds of large populations announces without proof that large shift in in public opinions are attributable to his product that is a sales pitch. And maybe true. But it's about as unbiased as an axe body spray ad but even if mercer or is right we don't know how long he'll be right four Cambridge analytica may have stumbled unintentional tender place. But there's no reason to suspect that it is any more enduring during the up worthy headlines there may be a rump of voters who will remain susceptible to mercer ISM and it's persuasion tactics. But you don't win elections with a rump of voters. Now perhaps Mercer's are in D labs will develop new tips for their attentional harpoons. Ones that can puncture those calluses. We're developing even now and if if they don't someone surely will because there's a lot of money in power for anyone who successfully punchers our defenses while it lasts but history is littered with armies of seemingly invincible attention warriors who are out of all by their prey and could not overcome the countermeasures that were begat by repeated exposure to there once undefeatable tactics not counseling apathy here just perspective. It's not that there won't be evil billionaires trying to manipulate Turkeys to vote for Christmas mess after Robert Mercer is a footnote in the history of persuasion and I have no idea what new tactics they'll use to get past our defenses but I do know that we'll have defenses and that today's devastating super weapon will be tomorrow's stone axe all right guys.

"Shut up with cory dr oh that this summer's comecon in san diego you can hear the crowd on the convention floor the backward and he asked the author what he thought about our current obsession with the disc tokic future i think that we need to distinguish a disaster from catastrophe or disaster from estonia so disasters are are not pessimistic right imagining that things will break is just realistic engineers who designed systems on the assumption that they'll never break they don't make perfect systems they make the titanic and so the thing that cleese a disaster from a catastrophe is what people do when things breakdown and in pulp plotting where the plot is the central facet of the storytelling it's very tempting to take man against man and man against nature and merge them into the man against nature against man story where the earthquake not to your house down your neighbors come over to eat you and i think that like that's a very tense story and we've had a lot of uh we have kind of a a ruling political ideology that says that people are intrinsically selfish and even at selfishness produces this optimal i've come where pursuing your own interests at the expense of your neighbors and denying any solidarity our shared destiny is the only way to succeed and so it's kind of an ideological project as well the reality of disaster though is that disasters the moment and which like the background ham of petty grievance ends and we find our most noble selves right there the reality the lived experience of people who go through disasters is that that's the moment in which everyone realizes that they have more in common than they do difference and they all pitch in together to try and make things better so walkways a book about people being principled kind and selfless in times of disaster and still not agreeing right because like it's easy to win an argument with people you don't like but winning and argue with people.
