"It's the of thought that is neutral criminal justice system despite unprecedented attacks we press on. I said Garda's lawsuit cites data data from the State Attorney General showing African Americans in Missouri are subject to to nearly twice as many traffic stops in arrest as white several races. Social media posts allegedly made Missouri. Police officers are also listened to complain in one. A former police division officer allegedly posted a photograph of of on facebook of an African American police officers standing with two African American demonstrators calling the officer. Captain Hug a thug in a disgrace to the a uniform. Not exactly sure what's racist inherently about that. But that's what they wrote in another lieutenant is is accused of posting. I'm not sure what the Hell is going on in our country. These days are Joe by in authentic Mexican restaurant in town and there are white guys putting on a new roof cutting the grass and doing landscaping manscaping. So I guess white people can't do can't put on roofs cut grass and do landscaping. I guess that's something that's only for Mexican people right. We regulate into certain industries. And that's all you can do for ticketless in another facebook post in Missouri USA wrote according to the lawsuit officer offered to sell L. T. shirt emblazoned with the word. Black lives splatter because blue lives matter. These police officers doing this allegedly the lawsuit also alleges that Saint Louis Police Officers Association has gone out of its way to support. White officers. Accused of perpetrating acts of violence in excessive force against African American citizens including the twenty fourteen shooting of Michael Brown. Additionally the Saint Louis a police officer association paid the bail. Jason Stockley await officer shot and killed African American Motorists Anthony Lamar Smith in twenty eleven according to the lawsuit now now if the that same S. L. P. O.. Egg Saint Saint. Louis Police Officers Association does not pay for the bail of a black officer who's accused of Of shooting someone then they Iran clearly. They are on Garner who sought to launch several police reforms a cooling improving investigations of policemen conduct in Saint Louis received threatening letters to our office that were filled was racial invective in some of the letters Garner was called racial. Slurs and various sexist expletives so that's a little bit what's going on you can read on that. ABC News So. I thought it was very interesting that she chose this eighteen. Seventy one and act. The Ku Klux Klan acknowledge not very familiar with that amount of a lawyer and attorney but just reading a little bit about you know Different various website. Apparently this was a law that was enacted to help to enforce the reconstruction efforts mostly in South Carolina but across the board after the civil war reconstruction goes on black. People are being voted into office. Black people are allowed to vote to becoming normalized naturalized citizens in able to express all of their rights right so they had to pass these laws thirteenth Fourteenth Fifteenth Amendment to the Constitution and. What are the laws that helped to enforce? This was this Ku Klux Klan Act which helped to break up the Ku Klux Klan? In any the group that would seek as a group of people with interest in supporting and maintaining white supremacy. So that is essentially what Miss Gardner is a sewing them under. Is that this group right. The Saint Louis Police Association and the city. Her allegations are is that they are seeking in banded together under the white supremacy in order to thwart the efforts of This one black citizen who has the right to WHO's essentially going to impact lies and many other black citizens right every person who under color of statue ordinance regulation custom or usage of any state of territory district of Columbia subjects subjects or causes to be subjected any citizen of the United States or other person within the jurisdiction thereof to be to the deprivation of any rights privileges or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws. Saab you're liable to the party injured in an action a law suit in equity or any other proper proceeding for redress right so a lot of that is a lot of legal ease. I don't really understand a lot of it. But this is what Miss Connor seeking to do. So I hope the justice prevails and if if it is true that the Right this is only one side door will getting one side of the story and show that the facts will be born out in court but if this is true than You know I hope that. Justice comes for Miss Gardner in for all these other states attorneys district attorney's across the nation who are feeling the brunt of this right. They're from California to Baltimore Down to Florida from two Massachusetts many of these states attorneys feel as if their their efforts towards criminal justice reform of being ordered By those who have a vested interest in keeping the status quo a sad part an sad reality about law enforcement is is that what is it is an institution is a system and unfortunately that system needs to feed upon people. What I what I mean by that prison systems as the union had been supportive of the continued criminalization of marijuana and other drugs? Now you have to think about why these unions would stand behind some kind of policy. He liked that while the more people would because obviously more people need to be arrested so that these people can be housing and car serrated as so therefore the prison officials can continue to have their jobs. Same thing with law enforcement right if you if you stop criminalizing and decriminalize marijuana and other drugs stop prosecuting people for simple possession. Then the arrests go now and therefore what are the police going to do right so this is a this is unfortunately a vicious cycle that that Ms Garner is this is seeking to stop this over criminals. Ation of people minority communities poor people and so a lot of police as officers are fighting back against that because okay if not arresting people for drugs than what are we doing all day right. Why how can we justify numbers? How can we justify our salary? So you want in someone. I hope. That justice prevailed and hope that the truth comes out for her. And how did it sets a precedent for all those prosecutors and other counties talked talked about traffic stops. Some of the things that Miss Gardner was looking into in Saint Louis nother story the cubs from Chicago is the ACLU is asking why minorities are still pull roll over much more than whites right so something that the ACLU is looking into from. The Chicago. Tribune The American Civil Liberties Liberties Union is asking why minorities still pull over much more often than whites. Despite court order reform by City Hall driver's color continued to be stopped at higher percentages. Tis Vander estimated local driving population and they are asked to consent to search more frequently with less. Contraband found Dan. Dan White drivers they were roughly. There were roughly four hundred. Ninety thousand traffic stops Chicago streets last year. More than two hundred thousand Isan than the previous year. According to the data from Illinois Department transportation it was the third consecutive year sharp increases about eighty six percent four hundred twenty one thousand involved minority motorists of those three hundred thousand. Were black that sixty one percent of the total number of people stopped in Chicago Twenty eighteen and even though African Americans are about thirty one percent of the city's two point seven million population near sixty eight thousand and stops involved the white motorists. There is a story. Worry here. Let me give the other side of the of the equations we can understand this Many times in we had to look at this. Are African Americans committing more traffic violations nations. That question has to be asked are recommending more traffic violations. I know that when we had a study in Connecticut concerning the same think I think in my own home city we were found to be stopping. African Americans more unfortunately a lot of times. Here's what's happened Take this for what it's worth and it's the honest to goodness truth. I think that you know by not going to give you some. Bs is that officers are often targeting targeting areas in neighborhoods. Where crime is is happening? It's just a fact it's just the fact that we want that right if there's shootings and gang activity in certain neighborhoods we need to target those neighborhoods in if we can stop op people if we can perform these type of motor vehicle stops and Get people to understand that there is a police presence then that that only worsened in in the favor right and it helps to bring on shootings and everything like that. It's only one of the tactics that can that is used to address a crime in certain neighborhoods and. That's one of the tactics tactic so we had to be very careful about when we asking law enforcement not to stop certain people because they are black and many times. And I'm going to ask you to do this as as you listen to this. Drive down the street and tried to tell What the race is of the person in front of you right Many times you can't you cannot tell many times you cannot tell the race. The person WHO's driving in front of you then people have tend to Windows nowadays and you cannot see into the windows In so many times you don't know but a person who's in front of you. Who runs a stop sign? Who Refuses to who speeds up at the Yellow Line tries to beat that light? That red light Many times you don't know what that rid the races. So that person in so the first thing I'm going to ask is what is the race. What is who is committing more of these types of infractions? Right first thing black I people have to do is stop committing more infraction. I don't know the numbers and Statistics Chicago. But I do know that when we were. We were approached a concerning turning these types of measures that we were able to justify the fact. That what we're doing when we gave the information as to where the crimes were happening where shootings were happening. Where are street-level robberies? Were happening and then we showed that our our enforcement actions and activities were geared towards those particular neighborhoods in those particular areas and so therefore for once again. We were stopping people who are committing infractions. motor-vehicle stops in those areas. And that's what we were doing so that may be exactly. Actually what Chicago was doing. If that is what's going on then I give them my whole heart in full support in what they're doing in that needs to be understood by people right so just because you gotta be very careful when you look at numbers and statistics because there may be reasons behind this. I'm not saying not to look into I'm not saying that the ACLU and other watch groups now look into these matters but there may be a justification for it right there may be a justification for what's going on so you can read more about that and the a Chicago Tribune namely articles as traffic stops by Chicago. POLICE SPIKE ACU ask. Why minorities are still pulled all over much more than whites sticking with Chicago just for a minute here? This was a story I think from December but I'll mention it again here again is that they the new interim police chief that they have has decreased the or eliminated the merit system for promotions things. And I think that that's very key when we talk about police corruption when we talk about why police officers playing drugs on people while they are selling drugs and trying to boost up their numbers burson trying to increase their arrests. What the question is why a lot of times they doing that? Well the merit system is essentially. Someone's going up for promotion if Chicago has some type of A testing process I e a written test in on maybe some type of oral board presentation Then maybe another component of the testing process is merit test right. So how many arrests do you get..

"Sixty calls tonight. People wide awake. Back to the call. Eleni in Farmingdale, Lenny what's going on. Lenny. Lenny is not there. So we move on. James and lynbrook danger on the fan. Oh, hey, Tony. Hey, I I have to say you've kept me entertained for. Many I'ts over the years. I appreciate your show. Thanks very much. Yeah. And plus since you're one of the only host to talk about you know, boxing and fighting and stuff like that. I'm just curious. You know, how much has the UFC and mixed martial arts. How much has it taken out of boxing in general, you feel like there's it's taking a hit. Oh, yeah. I mean, I'm not look, I'm not a big. MMA guy or guy, but I noticed. It's it's there because boxing keeps shooting itself in the foot. You know, the one thing about I like about the UFC is Dan, Dan, white runs it. And that's it is like it's not there's two heavyweight champion. She just have guys fighting for the title in boxing. There's so many different organizations in so many different variations of champion champion is a super champion champion of the champion in recess and like a regular ambulance. What the hell people don't you? Don't even you can't name five champions. If I gave you fifty five James in any any way, carry you'll say, okay, Mike Tyson? I said Heuer it'll sell sell tell you guys were retired boxing. Yeah. Yeah. You're asking me name the five champion any five champions in boxing. I can't even name the five champions in WWF, you know owned. So that's my other thing is, you know, like, Ronda Rousey heard going to the WWE like what what is do you have any insight onto like how much she making as opposed to if she was doing her anime stuff. I don't know how much he's making. But it's you know, what it is a lot of guys a lot of people wanna get into movies and entertainment, see left a UFC. Which is you know, it's a blood sport to choreography, which is WWE. Yeah. You're doing it. Doing it like, you know, three or four times a week. I'm just curious about you know, in terms of boxing MMA like says, he's making me what happened million and a half. Yeah. Yeah. Like, how many people like go into you know, and I may but then just like settle onto boxing Yana any insight to that. You know, it's it's a really obscure thing about, you know, be the heck out of each other. But I, you know, it just curious 'cause I your host or person I could ask I appreciate it. It's it's an interesting. And like. You know, you're going to give you pay per view fight every once in a while and. I think they and WWE ever same thing where you could buy their package. And you wind up getting the big fights and the big pay per view matches boxing. You know, now it's with the streaming is going on with his own ESPN. Plus. Somebody said interesting point the other day, they watch the fights last week on FOX Charles brothers. And he said, you know, it was so different different. It was nice. It was on TV. But he said I didn't like the commercials. You know, I wanna hear what the what the trainer says I want to hear the interaction because when I do international vice where we have no commercials. So you know, will will listen to the chart trainers? And then we'll go to the replays in that one minute break, so produce will tell me like we got coming up in a nice action. So what do you watch? Listen to the guys in one corner. I go to the other corner. Then here comes the. Highlights the replays. You can't do that on on. What is on free TV? 'cause you know, you gotta get the commercial in and even if you sell like a thirty second spot. So you have thirty seconds. It's not might not be a bad idea. You just can't get all the both corners and replace. So they'll probably just go to to the replace unless the corner says something outrageous, let's go to Joseph in Manhattan. Joseph you're on the fan. Hi, Tony happy new year. Thank you. Same to you and yours. I've been listening to your show for quite awhile. Haven't talked to in a while. But could show tonight. A lot of good calls. I agree. It's like you said about LeBron versus Jordan. I'm a couple of callers ago, pretty much what you said, I think right now keep the edge to Jordan. But a few years could be LeBron also abroad you really never had a great supporting cast anyway. But that's not why I'm calling what I don't understand is, you know, and I was never a huge fan of his. But why isn't Jabbar mentioned the conversation? I mean, you're talking about leading score of all time in the NBA high time champion NBA champion. I think he was the MVP of the champ of the of the finals, I'm pretty sure he was empty of the of the regular sometime. Three time NCWA champion, probably the bluest blue chip ever in highschool, right? And then social activism. I mean, isn't that that he's not considered conversation because you know. You think you've put Kareem in the same category? Wilt in the sense that they were unstoppable. No, totally was too strong is strong. And and you know, very few people could stop his skyhook. No one could shop. I mean think about those guys today. I I don't think I I think I think honestly, I think that might even be better today than it was back then because I can't see anybody really guarding them today. Can you light Howard? I don't think so. No. And it's funny. You know? Toward the end of wills career. You know, you just saw this guy to just you know, would go on a low block and turn around and jump shot. But we first game. You could run the fourth wall like a guard. Oh, he was tremendous. He he was in college. He was a hijab Reid jumped seven feet. I mean, this is some foot to guy with practically an eight foot wingspan who could jump seven feet and then got into volleyball later in his life. He did he was a coach and a player for the conquistadors. And then he's also pro. Yeah. He was a pro volleyball par he was in the pro volleyball circuit, I guess for quite a while. I remember there was a picture of him coach in San Diego. He was on the bench with long pants on flip flops. Yes. Now. But he was w was tremendous. But Jabbar, what do you think he's not? That flashy. You know, I, you know, the skyhook was just everybody. Everybody wants to learn the skyhook. But I think they give up on it because they didn't have his touch people. Forget about that. He was just a great know he was just his player. And again, the five championships the leading score of all time the NBA, but they don't even talk about God. That's a good point. All right, man. All right. Have a good one happy new year again. Thanks to you. They always will Jordan and the LeBron these days and he's right. Kareem. Remember spoke to him a couple of times, he's very, you know, subdued in a like, the smartest guy in the room. If you will. The first time I ever saw him. Father took me to the singer bowl in flushing for something. I don't even remember what it was. Must have been a concert. I can't remember who or what? But this tall guy walked into the outdoor arena and people were nuts. And they mobbed them saw this tall figure with all these people. I came up to his chest. And it was it was Lou Alison there at the time because he was he was going to UCLA that that that four casino. He's finished up at power memorial. Let's go to Michael in the Bronx, Michael you're on the fan. Tony. Hey, man. What's going on? Not too much. So just, you know, great call is going on right now wanted to go back to the Yankees. Got climbing Mussina, Pat it. Got a name the name of Randy Johnson. Signed Jose contrasts in two thousand three you know, the reason we're not not to mention Masahiro Tanaka. Thousand not where we we're we're not winning championships because. It depends on a balanced hitting. New york. The sell off. Pitching. We got burned so many times Kevin Brown. All these people so much Bronx not focused on pitching. This money gets a big backs in that. That's what's going to sell tickets in New York. Yeah. But does that win championships? Not at all. We're not being shipped team. I'm sorry to say we're lucky we even want in two thousand nine Abraham had a good post-season because growing up as a Yankee fan. You know, coming from the early nineties, Don Mattingly days, and then you know, those championships that we had that run like after that after two thousand we don't we don't disturb anything. And Yankee fan should recognize that we do not deserve anything. We have not earned anything. We're not giving you gotta earn it. And then you know, they they they want one hundred games. And for a lot of teams a lot of cities. That's wonderful. But the goal for the Yankees, not one hundred games and it's to win the World Series. And they don't the team's not consciously constituted to get that far. Of course, of course, when we went two hundred games Boston's gonna win a hundred plus when we get one hundred games Boston went two hundred and you know, our best chance at the World Series was thousand seventeen and the AL off the aspirin. We should have overtaken them that would have been on hand because going know National League, we we could've got that. Just one last point Tony, you know, like that. A lotta Yankee fans they came from New York Giants Brooklyn Dodgers and those teams are based off pitching and those are based off like good line-ups. And now it's just at the point where it's like we cannot build those team. So the expectations for the Yankees just want to make money at any call nights on. I think money is every every team wants to make money and you make money by winning because the more you win the more people show up in spend money. The yankees. I may look with they're not done yet. I, you know. Get machado. Yup. Could they get or Harper? Yep. I think so I'm not I'm not ruling them out on the Harvard deal yet, even though he thinks he's going to to the. The dodgers. But again, do you have a pitching staff that can shut down the other team in the postseason for various levels. Do you have? A team that can put the ball in play. When you're not hitting home runs. You know, it's got to be some kind of combination. Look if the Yankees are hitting home runs in the postseason. They got a good chance anybody to win. But at some point you don't hit home runs, and you have to manufacture runs. And that's that's the best part of the game. That people are are delinquent. You have to have. I say don't use every tool in the toolbox. Let's go to Lillian Hoboken, Louis. You understand? How you going back tonight doing well? How you doing? All right. My question about the grading follow Rica boxer you ever. Woo. Oh, good. Lord. That's a whole man Benitez comes to mind. Fred refrain Gomez. I. I say Tito, I still go. Tito, Trinidad right now Kodo right behind them. Okay. Yeah. Okay. Goldman. But you know, I feel like Goldman I met good night. All right man now. But he says that was he was he could really. It's the same because he had. Health issues because you know, take into many punches, but he was one of the guys that never got hit. I mean, he was he was when he call himself the bible of boxing. That's one of the strangest. Monikers I've ever heard of. But he was a hell of a defense of fighter. So how'd you get so? We've happened. But that's the sport. You listen to. I did I did an interview with Thomas earners with the fan. We were around Vegas and Hearns came in and sat down, and I was looking at him. And like this. This is not airy. It was you couldn't understand them. And I had a lot of interviews in the can. And you know, I feel my respect and did the invention stopping to interview. And then when it was done I said without running just dump it. It's it's it's it's bad. And he wasn't even I don't think he was forty and I interviewed Archie Moore. The great light heavyweight champion years ago when.

Willie Brown was a fan Di Di PHI because Jim Jones was powerbroker San Francisco. He chaired the housing commission in San Francisco, people don't even know this. So he puts it all together in this book. But then he ties that into the Harvey milk situation because Harvey milk was was killed by Dan, white, George Mosconi was killed by Dan white ten days after the whole thing in Guyana goes down to fascinating book. But man, what you see in this book is how the media in San Francisco, California, and the world has totally whitewashed this and Hollywood and Hollywood it's as if this didn't happen. It's as if the things that these people were involved in never took place because they have so far distance themselves from Jim Jones a guy who they love. He was a powerbroker Jim shows. I mean, we got the most Cody center in San Francisco beautiful building convention center, named after George Mosconi who was who was murdered by. Dan, white. George Mosconi was a he was he was. George Mosconi was a guy who well, he had the reason why Dan white killed both of those people had nothing to do with homophobia or anything like that. They both reneged on promises that they made the damn white. And Dan white was obviously a hot head. And he went too far. He kills both. These these men, but it has nothing to do with homophobia nothing of the like. Yeah. His business partner and chief of staff was gay. There were gay gay. Dan, Dan, white was a Dianne Feinstein protege. He was that some hardcore right winger. Anyway, that interview is coming up in just a moment. You've got to stick around. Okay. So.
"dan dan white" Discussed on WBZ NewsRadio 1030
"Number three coming up here on nightside. Thanks to everybody who has joined the conversation tonight. And we have a great topic. And a great guest this hour. He's been a guest here before he's a writer from central Massachusetts makes a living as a writer which ladies and gentlemen, not easy to do. Daniel j Flynn, Dan Flynn, Dan. Welcome back. Tonight's at Hawaii. Outstanding. Thanks for having me. Well, you've written several books. You also write columns. I mean, you literally make a living as a writer, and that's not an easy profession to pursue allegedly. Make a living. Sometimes it doesn't feel like much of a living. No, no, no. So how many books have you written? So this is the sex book. And I think the last I was on here in August. But the last time I was on here for a book was I wrote a book called the war on football, which delved into the controversies with concussions and other controversy surrounding football in. So that was the last one I did. And this one is obviously in a very different topic than that. So what the topic that you've written this entitled cult city? Jim Jones Harvey milk in ten days that shook San Francisco I remember this vividly and many of our audience will remember this vividly as well. But for those in the audience whose memories are a little foggy maybe for those in the audience who were not around at the time, we go back forty years. It's November next month is November of two thousand eighteen and when is the anniversary of this horrific massacre. So November eighteenth November eighteenth. I know exactly where I wasn't November eighteenth nineteen seventy et Al explained that later on during the hour. I don't know if you can remember where you were exactly on that day. But you certainly know explain to the audience, let's set this up James Jones, Reverend Jim Jones. Is he actually a Reverend who was he sort of a self made Reverend? He no he was actually a Reverend when he he did a sort of a a biographical sketch of himself an autobiographical sketch, and he explained to his followers of the people in the room that you know, he thought how can I demonstrate my Marxism, and he said the thought was to infiltrate the church, and so he may be trying to impress his followers at that point who were socialists, and Jim Jones is probably the the worst authority on Jim Jones because he was a liar. But he made the point to tell us his people close to him that from the very beginning. His whole object was to promote Marxism was to promote socialism and use the ministry as a means to do that. He certainly was doing that by the nineteen seventies. Now, whether he was doing that in the nineteen fifties and the nineteen sixties, you know, to one extent has deigned minister from somewhere guy that got became a minister he was he was an ordain minister. Okay minister. All right. So he. Again, have read portions of the book, I learned about a lot about Jim Jones a tough time. San Francisco's had some tough times. You mentioned Harvey milk. Harvey milk was a is an alderman in San Francisco, essentially, boy, he's on the board of supervisors the supervisors. Okay. And he happened to be gay, and he gets involved here in this book a little bit, but subsequent to the massacre in Jonestown milk was assassinated. That's right. And it was the mayor San Francisco, and the initial thought was that Jim Jones is evenging angels had come back to San Francisco to finish their work and very quickly that thought evaporated upon the new, you know, when Dianne Feinstein announced everyone that Dan white was the suspect there's a lot in the book on Dan white. That's never been talked about before he had a violent history prior to what he did. He was also on the board of supervisors crackle. So Dan, Dan, white and Harvey milk were elected in nineteen seventy seven. They were sort of like a new wave a politician in San Francisco over the years. There has been a almost a caricature portrayed both white and milk where we're milk kind of comes into the book aside from the fact that obviously these two assassinations happen these two events happened. So close to one another is that he was a supporter of Jim Jones. And a lot of people don't realize that that a lot of the folks in San Francisco and even nationally Jim Jones was not some fringe figure. He was not, you know, like Charles Manson street person type guy he was selling that was very much in the in crowd so much. So that the mayor of San Francisco, George Mosconi appointed him to the housing commission, San Francisco and he quickly became with mccown. What's going to support the chairman of the housing commission in San Francisco, which pretty scary thought when you think of how he treated his tenants in Jonestown that this guy is essentially the largest landlord in the city of San Francisco, you don't see. That with other people whose names are set in the same breath people like Ted Bundy or Charles Manson, this guy was very much in the establishment in San Francisco. And it says something about that city in that decade. It was sort of the hangover after the high. You know, you had the summer of love Haight. Ashbury Haight Ashbury, all that stuff that was going in the nineteen sixties, and that was a whole lot of fun. And then all of a sudden, you have the hangover, and it's not so much fun. You have the semi's Liberation Army and the kidnapping of Patty Hearst, you have this group called the new world Liberation Front. That is putting bombs they put a bomb on the on the window sill of Dianne Feinstein. They would send candy to different office holders. And it'd be bombs in the Russell Stover candy box. There were weathermen hiding out. There was obviously the zodiac killer. The zebra killings. There's all sorts of craziness going on in the nineteen sixties into this Stu calms people's temple at one to two things you forgot they were to press. Assassination attempts on Gerald Ford. By was it Sara Jane Moore one of the net job? I was the one in San Francisco. Right. And then there was one Sacramento by squeaky fry squeaky fromm, which Sacramento's not that far from short Cisco northern California. So it was a wild wild time. And of course, San Francisco still has immense problems today. But what I want to come back to is the central figure Jim Jones who eventually would lead was it three hundred or more. This is nine hundred and eighteen people that were killed including Jones, including Jones. It was a mass suicide in these re people who were poor who had basically given everything everything to this guy who portrayed himself as a messiah and who people believed in. It's an amazing story. It's an amazing book called city. Jim Jones, Harvey milk and ten days that shook San Francisco. I did not recall that the assassinations followed so closely on the Jonestown massacre. Sure that was that was nine days later, and I think history the history that's told is the Dan white killed Harvey milk because he was gay. I got very hobby milk was because Harvey milk was gay. I got a much more complicated version told to me one of the guys I spoke to was Dan White's campaign manager chief of staff and business partner. He's he's gay, and we're gonna get to all of that. We're going to take a break. My guest in studio. Dan, Flynn, if you have recollections or memories, are you wanna ask any questions about one of the most disgraceful chapters in American history a chapter which has to some extent been forgotten, but it has been revived and resurrected by author Dan Flynn in his new book called city just out today. Six seven two five four ten thirty triple eight nine two nine ten thirty. I have a connection to this story album. It is a very distant connection to the story. But I'll share that with you. And if those of you who want to share your memories of the Jonestown massacre would love to hear from you as well. You know, the numbers coming back on nightside. Nightside.
