I think i read somewhere that you gave them melissa. Ethridge your liver her something. I know it's a good story. Don't melissa and her significant other julie cypher. We're in hawaii same time. We were and visit us at this beach house. That a friend of ours does and this is when our kid django was very young he was three maybe four something and he was a spectacular and they saw and they said oh god how do you get those and i refrained from the usual job. Normally i would have been crude but it is pain about some people just are weird about gay people and it didn't think that they should have. Children would throw roadblocks in their path to me. I don't give a damn. But the plumbing i care about the hearts don't care what sex you are or what sex your partner is what you do. I don't wanna know it's your business. I care about you love each other. They did so they said. How do we get one of those. And jan pointed at me. And i said yeah. Generosity that caused the two children that wound up happening and are spectacular kids both but that became news headline as well as many other things. So was it all part of the ride or was there a specific point where cross the musician had to reconcile that development that your private life was now and forever going to be so public. It has been all the way along aspen since birds and it's really a very difficult thing. It's totally great. When you've just put out a record and goes to number one you love being in the public. Nothing more fun. It's absolutely a page when you make major mistakes in the public eye and you have to live with them. That's no fun at all. It's educational been working on educating which it's been difficult. I wanted to touch on the acting thing early. Nineties you appeared in sick calms. I remember roseanne ellen. Had to bring your birth in. Sorry sorry my favorite bit of acting was your voice work on the simpsons guest starring as yourself and for me it put to rest those stigmas you allude to homer's barbershop quartet was one episode featuring the be sharps which was homers band.

Gumbel springfields town drunk homeless best friend. David crosby you're my hero. You like my music. You're a musician. That's a great joke but it was the ultimate forum for you to be able to laugh at yourself. I think that's the only healthy thing to do. Minh if you have an ego as big as mine the only thing you can do to live with it as make fun of it as often as possible. I do it all day every day in front of me so constantly because it's the only thing keeps it even vaguely in check. It's a survival technique in twenty eleven you and national in colorado. You delivered the closing plenary address. Called life matters up at. Cu the conference on world affairs. You're pretty outspoken politically. You've got to be apoplectic these. it's a bitch level. I'm struggling to keep my head above water to you. Just dismiss the guy. Because he's such an idiot. He's like an eight year old is broken into his dad's office never allowed in there. So nice peeing. All the papers. I'll show them but he's doing great harm and it's not just to the constitution. It's not just to our democracy. Every moment that we as the world leader do not address global warming we are doing harm actual harm to every other human being on the planet. All of them carmichael. That's not a real smart move but in terms of our it's disastrous where we are right now we may not be able to pull up we are in a nosedive and we are pulling back on the stick trying to get the airplane to pull them up but we've got a co-pilot who's pushing for mistake seen fucking bullshit fine fine fine to fly. We're in a dangerous situation. I'm old tonight believed in democracy. I always did. I always thought democracy with a really good idea. And i wish we still. I believe in it. I think it's the best way for us to live together under the rule of law. I like it. I'll fight for it but we got right now. Is greedy children. Amoral greedy children running the country and ripping off everything. They can lay their hands on in the process which was their goal in the first place. Anyone sign up to run the country. How do we get to hear a lot of really evil people in congress. How do we get only evil people in congress. We got him because a long time ago the companies started making so much money that they could afford to buy commerce and they did. It costs so much to win an election. Now that the payers the co predators can step in and say. Hey there's ten million bucks. Do what i tell you. When they call him back up they say hey quarterly reports down to work we work. That center says what time if they told him machete desk them what color he's gonna do whatever the hell they say because he wants that ten million again and he's going to get it if he does exactly what they say. That's the reality. That's what we're doing so to fix it all the fixes. I know about have to go through converse hoops whether you're going to have a democracy in this country ten years from now is questionable. We only think about that. What you handing your kids.

So when you first are carrying the so you knew it was a you had a child, so it's not a shock that this trial, but it, but it's probably a fair shock that this trial is trying to find you after all these years, isn't it? More of a shock to these music when you look at him or when you watch. Find each other. Yeah, no question about it, but he's a musician. Yeah, that's a shocker. Fan I find out how good.

You know I was listening to allow when you look at him and it. Can you see resemblance yourself in him at all? Yeah, you can see He looks sort of like I. Did you know back when I used to look?

I've seen the movie and it wasn't like that and. It's mostly because things could. But also I didn't quite get it. He was in a foxhole when it all went down. So. He tended to paint it in slightly brighter colors than it was too, but no Morrison. Tortured Guy Them and The reason that that he weren't wound up inserting himself into the song is that he was lost?

"About the life of musician David Crosby from the birds to Crosby stills Nash and young to today now playing from NPR news this is All Things Considered I'm ari Shapiro and I'm very that was Kelly president trump says he has cut a deal with Guatemala to stem the flow of migrants to the US I think it's gonna be a great thing for water model and they don't want these problems either so what we were able to get this done and we got it done fairly quickly the agreement was signed in the oval office this afternoon it is a so called safe third country asylum agreement and it follows days of threats from the president there had been talk of imposing a travel ban of tariffs on Guatemalan goods of taxing money sent home by Guatemalans living in the U. S. and here's Franco or don't use broke the news of the possible travel ban he's been following all those who joins me now hi Frank time so what happened this afternoon well president trump just announced here at the White House that the administration had signed an asylum agreement you know it really was a big agreement that would force migrants traveling through Guatemala to seek asylum out of the United States applies to Salvadorans as well and hunter and to take a key component of trump's strategy for reducing migration and frankly to quite a turn of events considering that just earlier this month the Guatemalan chi court had said you can't do this kind of agreement but trump didn't believe it and he threatened to take action against them and was it those threats that prompted Guatemala to agree to this which they as you suggested had been resisting well it certainly seems like it had an impact you know this is they were certainly scared of the consequences it's a small it's a poor country that depends on the United States the local business community particularly was very scared of the terrorists and was pushing the president of Guatemala Jimmy moralis to do what president trump was seeking you know we as you mentioned we also reported on the travel ban that was directed a Guatemalan nationals who come to United States legally those are the business peaceable themselves to the point you made a moment ago Franco that Guatemala's High Court had ruled the president can't to do this at least not unilaterally it mean can this agreement even come into force will it be legal in Guatemala yeah I mean I think that's the big question and we still need to be a little bit cautious here the High Court did say the president can't do this unilaterally that's the Guatemalan president can't do this unilaterally and authorize an international treaty such attacks are supposed to be ratified by the Guatemalan Congress so this deal may not quite be done yet you don't have to go back to Congress alright and this would seem to be in terms of how the president has approach this street from from the Donald Trump play broke of how he prefers to negotiate with foreign governments it really does I mean just this morning former bass I was I you know I I heard from some former ambassadors who are in touch criticizing trump for giving up on diplomacy in favor of bowling but his supporters trump supporters that is you know are crediting his hard nose negotiating style with getting results you know it was just a couple months ago that he did this with Mexico he threatened to impose big terrorist that would start at five percent and then go up to twenty five percent if Mexico didn't stop the flow of migrants they acted in trump at the last minute pulled back his threats now Guatemala you know actually acted sooner but as we mentioned there's still a few things that really need to be unraveled in Guatemala and adjusted to situate this in a broader context the goal here for president trump is reducing the flow of migrants at the border cutting down on immigration absolutely I mean that's the goal they want to reduce you know they want to reduce migration and I should also note that look this was a small country that trump can have influence over they depend on the United States very increasingly you know right now trump is also trying to push Sweden pressure Sweden to release a U. S. rapper who's in jail on assault charges there's a big question whether a country you know a larger country a wealthier country that doesn't rely on the United States in the same way will act in the same way you know they're less likely to succeed and pure white house correspondent Franco or Dona is reporting there on the deal signed this afternoon in the oval office between the US and Guatemala Finks Franco thank you when you look at the number of police shootings in relation to the population you find the people of color are shot and killed more often than white people the reason for that disparity has been intensely debated for years especially since an unarmed black teenager was shot and killed in Ferguson Missouri almost five years ago there has been one recurring theory the white cops are more likely to shoot black people because of racial bias now a new study is challenging that conclusion NPR's Martin Costi has more since the Ferguson protests of twenty fourteen we've learned a lot more about fatal shootings by the police news organization started collecting their own data on shootings to make up for in complete federal stats and academic started building on that Michigan State University psychologist Joseph says are you as part of a group that looked at fatal shootings in twenty fifteen they added in the race of the police and then did a statistical analysis the race of a police officer did not predict the race of the citizen shot in other words black officers were just as likely to shoot black citizens as white officers were other studies have looked at this question but this one comes closest to being a nation wide analysis it's also getting extra attention because it's in a prestigious peer review journal the proceedings of the National Academy of sciences and that puzzles Philippa to bug off I'm a bit surprised this made its way into P. and S. given what they actually far out golf is a prominent researcher issues of race and criminal justice and the co founder of the center for policing equity he says he applauds the authors for bringing in new data and trying a new approach but he doesn't think they came up with much it doesn't do very much to move us toward an understanding of how much our police responsible for racial disparities and the things it does sort of lead us to our things that we already knew for instance he says if the study is aiming to do but the assumption that white cop shoot people for racist reasons while black cops don't he says that's a straw man because no one in his field actually thinks that racism is not a thing the white people can have a black people can't and nobody's research would suggest that it does that's a really wild promised based in no research that knows you're a scientist should be able to say out loud and then get it published but the papers lead author David J. Johnson of the university of Maryland says some academics do make that assumption especially in his field psychology and he believes the same assumption is being made by the media I think that you see that in the recording on individual shootings where the mentioned the race the officer and the reason that they mentioned that is because is perceived as being well so what we did was for the first time tested that assumption Johnson takes pains to say that the study is not trying to deny the role of race instead what they're trying to do is narrow down where it's having its effect on policing he says it also raises some questions about a common fix for biased policing the push to hire more minority officers because if this study is right just hiring more black cops will not mean fewer black people get shot and that fits with what implicit bias trainers say people can have biases against their own demographic groups women can advises about women blacks and have biases about blacks it is incorrect to assume that any issue of bias in policing is brought to us by white males lawyers for dell is a criminologist as well as a bias trainer she says academics have been wrestling with this question for decades and this latest paper is not about to settle things the defenders of police of course well cherry pick the studies that show no bias and the other side will cherry pick the ones that do but we don't have any definitive studies on she thinks people should be more open to the idea that bias and demographics can both play a role and that's something that the authors of the paper and the critics both seem to agree on the real question here is not whether race is a factor in police shootings but when is it beforehand and all the things that might lead up to a shooting such as drug laws or racial profiling or does it come down to the skin color of the individual cop holding the gun Martin Costi NPR news there are more than twenty one thousand Kentucky fried chicken locations across more than a hundred and thirty countries among all those many thousands we know of only one that serves housemaid Flon I ate the flown and it was just so good that I went to my dad and said that I think we can solve this one rex Daniel goda second generation owner of a KFC in Hialeah Florida in the Miami area when you go to was twenty three he went to work in the kitchen along side then head chef delta American solace he was older but he was a sous chefs in Cuba Gonzalez immigrated to the U.

David Crosby, Laurel Canyon And Cameron Crowe discussed on Popcorn with Peter Travers
"This popcorn where I tell you what's happening at the movies and there's a movie now called David Crosby remember. My name like that was ever an issue really only for me that I don't think that is the whole power behind. This movie is my friend Cameron Crowe here who basically isn't the director but he is the producer and he did you see the back of his head in this movie a lot. You know asking this guy questions and I want to really find out the abuse that you were handed by him to really happen. We see a little of it but really there had been born and himself. David the crisis was thrilled to have you here. Things like this is really great leaving. We're both honored to be here. We wanted all that honor has now disappear. Don't does the biggest pain in the ass in the making not me I am probably I have a p._H._d.. In pain in the ass I think you certainly give yourself one. I did give them some tough. You know because that's kind of my nature. I'm a little feisty you know but I don't think anybody really was a pain in the ass and making the film A._J.. was persistent. He's really determined guy and he really will get it done. He's very determined to get it done. That's one of the things we like most about him. We'll see when we say that he's going to get done what's happening. You're you're there. You're not giving him him what they want. Oh no I've given him everything the whole time. I'm seeing the qualities that made it actually happened. He's known me since he's fifteen. He knows where he sold for Cameron. He was there. He's already been in the business for for five years. So he knew upfront he what he brought to this is a he's a consummate foam maker and be he knew me left right and center. He knows where all the bones are buried. He was in the WHO's in the dressing room. When we had that argument whatever went on he was then okay so the two of them and I had what you call a unity of purpose we we completely agreed about the level that we wanted to approach the thing which is rare in any project music or yeah? We did agree completely. We wanted to not do shine job. We didn't want to just say oh he kit because it's I'm not I'm not cute. I'm there are some people that might go in innocently to this movie thinking that you are well. God blessed to that when we didn't WANNA do it. We wanted to show you the truth about a human being as closely as we possibly could without any reservations association's on it at all no no. We'll just cover that we we all felt like that yeah union unit unanimity just complete. We all agreed to level because we didn't want to do the kind kind of shine job that most of the documentaries are well even within if you did even if it was just you going over the highlights of your career. That would still be some movie. The fact is there's no. <music> buttering anybody jokes at all thinking if this was me and it was remember my name I think we have to have that moment you notice. He used my phrase butter. He's in the I've heard to use that was you that was me I thought issue turn on the candidate. I have no right to do that. I really thrilled not here. You use my phrase because I think that's a great way to see didn't didn't tell me what he thought. I wanted to hear. He wasn't you know polishing. My apple makes him angrier. If somebody is trying to do that that would if they were saying. Maybe maybe don't don't generally like it. I like it. If you talk to me. Straight yeah which is one of the things that we have is he like I said he was there. He knows and when he doesn't pull his punches at all neither this A._J.. And that that was that degree of honesty made me fully confident about do the two of you get together on this particular project because he do in two A._J.. Eaten and David and just went into them as you will. It was J.J Abrams office because we were doing our hit showtime series roadies and we ran into to Iran's David in in our friendship and and H._a.. And they were talking about doing a documentary and immediately you know they were like Oh. Come on board with us the my again. We're doing this thing and everything but and I saw David's is that he was ready talk like he wanted to go there in this film and I said first of all as a fan when I watched this thing. I don't want to see a lot of talking heads. Forgive me but like you don't need a lot of people just put the him and you get them. Mike Him Warmly have him look like pretty much into the camera and cut out all middlemen <hes> David tells you about his life the way he would if you knew him for a while and it was a late night and you just ask them all the questions he wanted to ask him and so I said well I'll just do the first interview and have it enjoy it. You know he's the best interview ever and and I just kept interviewing him until I had to be in the show with them and that was a great day but when was the first time that you interviewed him it it had to be seventy four. I got an assignment from craw Daddy magazine to write about crosby stills Nash and young and they were opening their big tour and I've been dreaming of interviewing David as a young journalist and I interviewed him at our friend Joe Bernstein's house which was also Graham Nash next door and he just was so gracious and I had so many questions and he sat for every one of them. I'm like fifteen and he's he's saying. What else do you want to know? What else do you WanNa know he was? I was grieving over. My girlfriend's death like I'm fifteen going. David Crosby is telling me the most intensely personal trust me and I just always interviewed reviewed him every possible chance since and up until now that's all he asked of me was that I'd be honest but all taking him to Laurel Canyon he didn't want to go come on. We're not we're GONNA do that. Are you and wound up really well. Meanwhile everybody's talking about Laurel Canyon like we had to go to Laurel Canyon. He's like Oh. You're not GonNa make me stand on the steps of the country store. Thank Linda fries started. Started the eagles my God you have to Oh plea and this is what we put in the film when he those moments where he says things like there's no cinematic value in this whatsoever and he turns his back on the camera to save certainly yes he came in grump and he got me totally caught me being a grump absolutely then we get him to go in the Laurel Canyon country store which is really the citadel of that whole period as it exists Nessie. I see this is what you get so he walks in and he's looking kind of poetic and I go cross you know what did this place represent to you and he goes. You should see in the movie he goes. What did it represents the place where we came to get the grocery walks off camera and deal harasses the per poor person behind the counter but then he turns and he starts seeing these pictures including the doors which he has a little thing to say about the doors but Peter he goes outside and sits at the table and says the most intimate stuff of the entire interview series but that's because you asked me those question you you're just proud of it because you managed to produce at the store that's right 'cause he could've asked it? Somewhere wouldn't have been picture wouldn't have been a good shot at all so it had to get asked in the right place. I guess so for you to respond to tell me he knows what he's doing. I I am saying that it can learn the hard way because see he has kind of a baby face and you kind of trust and that could really read you up the wrong road but no it didn't because well can we show a little cook. There's there's a clip of you because what I love when you get into what you're doing whether you're excited by somebody or not excited that is there's something in you that gets kind of possessed by what it is in here in this clip slipped we have you're talking about culture fantastic. I looked pretty silly but it's funny. the the You look excited by what what you're talking about the movie we didn't know how to start the movie and we just decided decided one day that we were going to start at ninety miles an hour the story right all right well. Let's take a little peek at this and then inducted in men's room. I got my head against his Pew Green Tile. I can still remember the color of the tile okay.

"That was beautiful thank you so much I'm here in the studio right now with a name is Mitchel singer song writer you might know her from Haiti's town which scooped up a bunch of Tony awards in this past season and she'll be performing with David Crosby at Lincoln center on August eleventh tell us because Lincoln center the show was free right yeah it's free out of doors part of Lincoln center out of doors series and Broadway is as we all hello not free and that can be prohibitive for some people but the way that you made Haiti's town first as an album that was released online soap anyone could go and listen to it how do you square the need for art to be accessible with cases like Haiti's town on Broadway where you also need to cover the cost of the production and of course make sure that artists get paid for their work totally and actually Haiti sound started out even before the record that we made in twenty ten it was this D. I. Y. community theatre projects in the state of Vermont and that ticket would cost like ten Bucks yeah yeah and it was really you know the show came out of a really sort of organic wild place it wasn't the product of like you know the seats in the back room coming up with that idea and it didn't really feel like it was people's arts and we were performing it for town halls and some schools and places like that and then of course making that record I do love you know for all the complexity of like what file sharing and streaming of music means like I just love that music is free and that music can travel the world on its own legs and we have just we've released a bunch of tracks that are coming from the Broadway cast recording of Haiti sound which is very complete the show is it's two hours long and it's and it's mostly sun through so pretty much everything that you are going to experience in that theater is on this record that we're making which will be done in just a few weeks I noticed you've been releasing it sort of in in batches is that right yeah what was the decision making behind that yeah it's a lot it's a lot to be releasing totally there was there was an initial release date for the album and we got into working on it and and like I said it's two hours of music it's forty tracks and we just you know I've been working on this stuff for thirteen years and we just all of us care so much about the music we didn't want to rush it you know we really want to take the time to to added and mix and master it and it just has been a process and so thankfully the producers were like alright we'll give you more time but in order that people can get a little taste of of you know what they're going to get they've been releasing on a few tracks as they as they come out and so you said in a few X. from now yeah full album it will be out in this funny became fleet I think they've been these character drops like most of the songs of Hades and Persephone were released at one point and then I think the next one up is Orpheus and Eurydice and then that's the last one so all of the tracks should be available and then they'll be like a physical version of the album but also we will say I love that at the Walter Kerr like people can rush for tickets and occasionally like I've been in New York early in the morning and see people in line and I just like make make my heart swell that people are going to get a chance to see it that otherwise wouldn't and they're standing room tickets and that's that was so important for me when I started to when I start to set my sights on sort of getting this show up in New York I went to see a lot of shows on Broadway and I did standing room because that's what I could afford and it's just as good you know what's the trick to getting a standing room tickets for the show you know what I don't know the answer to that yeah okay that's it yeah but I find that out I'm sure lots of people would love to know when you were last here on all of it you talked about how long you sat with the Haiti's town songs and how much tweaking was involved to get them to where they are now do you ever return to tweak your other music thank you just played a song for us now you know the says a couple years old but has been recorded or released as part of a studio album great I mean I tend to know when a song is done and then it's done I think the case of Haiti sun is just different because all the songs are leaning on each other and it you know in the telling of the story and so if one thing changes at the top of the story then that needs to be reflected later in the later in the show and so and also we were sort of scaling the show up for bigger and bigger theaters and trying to make a piece that would really satisfy people at a storytelling level and not just at a musical level now that you're a Tony winner and you've gone from being indie folk artist to the creator of a successful really well received Broadway show do you feel like it's changed the kind of art you want to make or how you see yourself as an artist well I think it's all too new to nail you know nothing feels different internally and I guess if anything I hope that it sort of buys me some time to work on the things that I really want to work on that is you know at other times in my life I've had to had a tour to make the rent and now that there is Haiti sound maybe I can put more time into the writing and the recording that I really wanted to can you give us a sense of what you think you might want to be working on next have you decided that for yourself yeah well you know I started working about a year ago on this this new folk music project which is Qabbani light horsemen and it's myself and a guitarist named Josh Kaufman is also New York based and this guy Eric Johnson from a band called the fruit bats who's based in LA and we're we're doing a sort of loose approach to adapting traditional music and it's super exciting to me is really like it's traditional music but there's nothing research project the about it it's very emotional you know and it feels improvisational and we're playing you port this weekend and then pick up on later in the summer and then we have a record coming out at the beginning of next year so that's kind of the next new creative project on my plates and I'm also really looking forward to just getting in a room and writing some some of my own songs again of course now I'm hearing from my producers that here's some details about standing room tickets they looked it up quickly which is great so for sold out performances of Haiti's town there's a limited number of thirty nine dollars standing room tickets that are made available immediately after rush tickets are sold out one ticket per person but that's still pretty good you can get in on a short term basis and and quickly get into one of these performances for only thirty nine dollars amazing yeah that's great and and me Anna rates which have can anyone else in the creative team if we decide we want to see the show were using were standing in the back that's where we end up so we'll see you guys back there I've been speaking with Tony winning singer and songwriter and name is Mitchell she will be performing on August eleventh at seven thirty opening for David Crosby as part of Lincoln center out of doors

You would like like to go forward nine months. The high stakes here. I can't imagine listen people's choices of their own choices it I could not. I can't imagine sitting through this movie. Here's the here's the issue with the realistic take on cats. What's the genitals where are they? What's going on with them? You see I'm watching trailing arm like I'm expecting to see a para harakat nuts. Are you not you are because it's a realistic moved in this. Why are we doing it? Can they wear pants.

"We'll come back here in the second half of the best docs now radio. I want to continue on with this story on the healthcare sector because it's having a major impact on the overall market. I see that the NASDAQ is now slipped. It's down forty points. A lot of that being led downwards by continued weakness and selling in the healthcare sector. Well, first you have to ask yourself. What are the chances two years from now of Bernie Sanders being the next president? And if not Bernie camel layers of not gamble heiress mayor Pete, you know, if not mayor Pete. From Texas can't think of his name right now. But he's also running beta Aurora is the guy trying to think of so the market is starting to place bets. The market is starting to an -ticipant the market starting to employ some risk management. You could call it. And there's a lot of money moving out of the healthcare sector because of this major cloud that has been thrown over the head of the healthcare sector. Well, and again, you know, pretty much after Bernie Sanders town hall on Tuesday night once again. Bret bear the crowd. How many are willing to transition from your private healthcare to a government run system? Okay. Let's hands amongst my listeners. Really doesn't matter. What? Either one of what our opinions are the market is what matters right now. But he asked how many want your private healthcare insurance to go away and have it replaced by gover a government run system. And he's a specially called out United Healthcare UNH saying in an April twelfth tweet your greed is going to end. Now, I remember back in two thousand and thirteen who was back who was in the market in two thousand thirteen it was a fantastic year in the market is one of the best years in the market in a long time. And the leading sector in the market that year was the biotech sector. We had a tremendous year two thousand thirteen as the biotech sector sword. And I had many of those my biggest winner was Gilead sciences, which came up with the cure for the for liver disease. Hepatitis C wanna say they came up with a pill called civil the that totally cured your liver from hepatitis C without having the need for a liver transplant. David Crosby could have used that he delivered transplant the bass player. Phil lash the Grateful Dead at a liver transplant. Well, so all these drug was revolution. Gillian's drug was revolutionary. I found Gilead early on when it was about a ten dollar stock and my best docs now out and we made a ton of money in Gilead sciences with their breakthrough drugs of all. But the problem is they were charging you have to decide how much did it cost develop the drug? I don't know the answer to that. But a full treatment to cure your liver was forty thousand dollars forty pills thousand dollars a pill. Boy, that's a tough Bill. This wallow isn't it, but it cured you of the liver disease, which can be fatal, and it prevented you from having to have a liver transplant which cost a whole lot more money, and is a lot. Tupper ordeal to go through. All right. So congressman enter stage right stage left. I guess Henry Waxman of California wagging his finger at Gilead sciences for how much they were charging for that pill and other biotechs and he singlehandedly or with one finger. Weaving one finger caused the biotech sector crater. Well, now, you've got a guy running for president much bigger platform, much bigger stage, much bigger, megaphone much more clout than a congressman from California, Henry Waxman. Now, you got Bernie Sanders. Who is leading the polls. Currently ahead of Joe Biden who has not announced yet for the next democratic nominee and Bernie Sanders. His totally on board with going after the private industry that runs our healthcare system today, most of it and replacing it with a government run healthcare program. Will what is the CEO of United Healthcare telling employee's at United Healthcare? I don't know how many employees I'm going to look that up. He told them the last thing you wanna do is become the poster child during the presidential campaign. That's of course, what United is. Is being made into. And of course, over the years. The healthcare sector has been a very vibrant sector. I remember in the late nineties the HMO's were the leading sector in the market for a couple years there. And now they're wondering what next. Well, I started off the year very much underweighted in the healthcare sector a full waiting in the healthcare sector would be about twenty percent. So if you're in an asset allocation, and you own index funds, are you on NASA delegation that includes some of these sectors. Let me tell you you have a lot of exposure to the healthcare sector, you have a lot of exposure to the healthcare sector in an asset allocation or an index type of investment strategy. That's why I like individual stocks were I can tweak a little bit. I'd started lowering my exposure to the healthcare sector last week as I saw things starting to break down in the chart. That's where it was showing up in the charts. And then came the news and then came further cascade down. Then I sit here today I continue to own probably have a five percent exposure to the healthcare sector. Now, it could all blow over you know, if it really depends upon the probability of Bernie Sanders or another one with socialist tilt. Were to win in two thousand in twenty twenty and beat Donald Trump and the healthcare sector is in big big trouble. Now, if not two years from now, what about six years from now because it seems like it's a hell-bent course that the US and the people of the US are on is to replace private healthcare with single payer government, run healthcare. So take that into your thoughts as you invest, and if you're a passive strategy, you're passively sitting in healthcare stocks that could be on the railroad tracks right now with the freight train coming out about sixty miles an hour and no veering off and avoiding that Eliza. What we do have some stocks in the news today, we got travelers which is reported earnings travelers component of the Dow. Travelers is not a healthcare insurer, but they aren't insure another one out of Minnesota. The pride of Minnesota one of them long with many other companies glued United Healthcare out there in Minnetonka, travelers thirty seven billion dollar company reporting earnings today, it's up to point three percent today. And of course, tomorrow with the market being closed. I'll be writing the newsletter. And I will be updating you on how this earning season has gone so far. By the time. This week is over fifty nine s and p five hundred companies will have reported earnings, and I will have fresh numbers for you on this year's estimates next year estimates and what to look for are they higher than last year in the previous year is that slope still up remember connecting the two dots. Well, here's another couple of dots to connect all right in two thousand nine the SNP earn fifty five dollars per share fifty five dollars per share. We're now at around one hundred and sixty five dollars per share on his connect those two dots. What has been the direction of earnings over the last ten years of the SNP five hundred will dog on it. Those are almost two exact charts. If you overlay them the SNP five hundred connecting those dots from six sixty seven to twenty nine hundred earnings from fifty seven dollars per share to one hundred sixty five dollars per share to stocks follower earnings. Well, all that for you too. But they also stock the also follow earnings expectations. All right because by the time the earnings come in.

"You. Skull. The. Town. The. The. The. The. A live performance data recorded in Kalamazoo, Michigan David Crosby along with Becca Stevens, Michelle Willis and make a league the lighthouse band that play with him and co wrote and collaborated on his his latest album is called here. If you listen I wanna close out by talking about one one of the songs on the latest Almonte here. If you listen, and there's a lyric on the song that really stopped me in my tracks. Because I don't know if I've ever heard you write quite like this or saying quite like this before it's song your own ride. And you reflect on life and the lyric that that made me pause and have to go back with I've been thinking about dying and how to do it. Well, had a stand up face it or just lie where fell so before we hear the song whose perspective as the song written from my. Okay. So let's talk about it in that way. Then who who are using to my son Django? Oh, wow. You're so Django is one of you have six children, right? Yes. Man. Okay. And Tango is if I'm not mistaken, the one the one son who raised yourself. That's right. Okay. So so tell me what what you want him to know what you want to say to him in the song. I wrote this about ten years ago to him when he was about twelve and. I love him a lot. And you can hear that in the song. The line about drying. Well, you know, I'm old seventy seven years old. And the odds are I got a little bit of time, but not a whole lot. And I treasure this time time is the final currency. And I am tend to spend it on making something better on creating some art on trying to help somebody trying to do something positive 'cause I think that's what we should be doing with our lives. And that's me trying to make up also in my head balance in my head. Time that I wasted wasted. A lot of time. Now, I wish I had it back. But I don't get it back. So the time that I do have I'm going to do this. I'm going to do it as hard as I can't as best I can at the highest level. I can't over and over again until I can't. Yeah. But the song to like, it, isn't it isn't entirely about about you, and what you want to kit. It's about clearing the way just that. I've been thinking about dying part I have been because you do. And that's the conclusion I came to. Treasure the time that you do have don't don't think about the fact that you're going to not have some think about what you do have. And then to the absolute best you can with it do something positive with it. Forgive me. If this is an ignorant question to ask. So you said that you wrote this song for Django for this son that you raise would you have a different message for the children who you didn't watch girl up or maybe. No, okay. No. And it's to the parents to in the sense that when I say, they watch each each choice you make every every path you take the they do, and they don't they may not listen to what we say. But they watch every choice you make. Oh, yes. They do your children to do, you know, all of your other children? Yes. Yeah. You're a will. Had to show up that I didn't know about central one show up that I didn't know one show up that I did know about and they turned out to be unbelievably great human one of those James, right? Who?

You know, I don't think about him that what he is that. But he's buddy minds. So he. He's known me since he was a teenager got understand that. So he knows me really. Well. Better than most people and he. Is a brilliant interviewer. He has a knack for pulling stuff out of people that they didn't really realize they were going to say, and he does that would be. He got stuff out of me. Nobody else did. There are some moments in it that are disturbing. But it is. You know, when you make a documentary, these days, the normal thing is to go to everybody that you ever met who was famous and get them to say really nice things about you. And then you can use their name in the advertising. Hey, this is different deal. This is a very honest conversation about. How my life has gone. So tell me like, I guess if you if you said that there are some parts that were disturbing to you or some things that you didn't think that you would say like how was that a difficult time? Like, did you feel sad while you were making it or or zone of it? Yeah. He he didn't force me. But he asked me to look at things that are hard for me to look at.

He did he he was the person they asked what do we do with this and said sign them. And then of course, you later on he cut Gwen avair, right? We're right. And it was like you. We had talked about this last time. You're hearing you said it was like an unrecognizable version. He played it for you. And you're like what sweeter on later on? Of course, more sophisticated Cross's. Listen to it and realized it was utterly beautiful..

"And and I run into I've got what I'm diving into is is these two bands, the one with my son sky trail spent on that's the rock and roll band on and this band the acoustic one on with Michael league. Who is just amazing? He's the bass player and the composer and the bandleader for jazz band called snarky puppy. He's terrific musician, and then Becca Stevens singer songwriter from the Carolinas. Unbelievable singer unbelievable writer. Player and Michelle Willis singer songwriter from Toronto Canada. And that's look that's just gonna be luck that I could wind up with these people. But what's happened is? I've had. Very hot chemistry with these two groups of people these two bands and the records just keep coming out. Truthfully. It doesn't really make sense. And I make records because they're not paying me for them. You know, the streaming things just killed us. Do you think? Yeah. I you're you're in a band with people who have not had the kind of success that you've had yet. And they're in the streaming climate too. And like, I sort of get the sense like for you. It's like okay at this point making easy because I love it my mic career like like like the days. I think of maybe worrying in hustling about being able to make a living as a musician or probably behind you. And for the people that you're working with. I think they're they're now. So like, how do you how do you get them through that? Or you know, how how to figure out how to make living as a musician now in can you help them through that you try. You do want to point the light atom and try to help them out. Because the streaming thing hits people who you would call an established artist, right? I've been doing it long time. It hits us very badly. Cut my income in half. But the new people they can't make the it's so hard from to get a leg up so hard for them to make any living at all so hard for them to be able to get through the initial dues that you pay as an artist without getting anything from records. So I'm kind of anti streaming. Because of that David Crosby is here with me oral cafe so working in a four piece harmony band is a format that is familiar to you. That's not a new arrangement. And I wondering if there's something that you learned about how to make it work in a four person band from the dynamic that you had with Crosby Stills Nash and young that you are applying here. Yes. Absolutely. You know, unless you're completely did to the world you learn as you go along and you play it to trying to do it better. You know, I'm I'm very proud of the work that that we did in those bands. We did some good music, but they were mostly competitive bands. You know, they were well, very competitive bands internally, and this is a more cooperative kind of thing. This is competitive and cooperative really two different kinds of energy. When goes all the way, you know, competitive winds up at battle war and cooperative ones up at a Symphony Orchestra. It's my end of things. That's where my those are my people that's the part of human effort that I wanna be in. Is it that you that? Obviously, the people that you're working with here different. And and that could be a big part of the environment change. Are you different to? Yes house. I'm I'm slow learner. But I do learn as a goal long. I'm probably a little better at you know. Being nice to the people around me still shoot my mouth off too much. But I I'm slowly trying to civilize myself with my baby around the entire female half of the planet. Also, realizing haven't been doing the best I can do that. And I working on that one too. I'm I'm trying to grow up. There was a rumor I was going to grow up. It hasn't panned out yet. What made you realize that you had to treat the other half of the planet better. Like did. You have a moment an moment about that. It's mostly the two ladies in in my band, and my wife, the three of them are are such whole complete people and such really strong good..

I told you that everyone on the around the office that day was like we how how are you talking to David Crosby? Again, didn't we literally just have him on the show? And at the time they were talking about twenty sixteen lighthouse records, we had just had you on the show. And now, I'm having deja vu moment today because same thing around the office. Everyone's like didn't you just talk to David Crosby about sky trails, and we did? But we're here and you have a new album what's going on with this with this wild output. Like, do we need to schedule a monthly phone? Call. Oh god. I'll I'll give you the best explanation. I can I'm the luckiest guy. You know? That's it. I look at how fortunate I've been man, I. I can't really believe that. I after all the luck. I've already previously had in my life with great people to work with. And I've worked with some terrific people. I leave CSM, and that's like diving off a cliff. It's really dangerous thing to do. And it was what had to happen. We weren't having any fun anymore..
