"Many things right to try. Just I'm just thinking right to try where you can now is a patient you're terminally, you couldn't get anything. You'd have to travel all over the world. Most people didn't have money that go home and they die. Now we have right to try where you can get these advanced treatments that haven't been fully approved. You're terminally ill. Very hard to get. They've been tried to do it for forty years. What we've done for the vets what we've done for the vet's ninety one percent approval on. The agenda. So, there's more enthusiasm now by far and we had look we were known as was the most enthusiastic anybody has ever seen because you've got rendered. That's why the deplorables remember. Hillary. The deplorables? I heard that speech she said, she said a second word irredeemable, right? She said. The deplorables in the irredeemable I thought he redeemable was worse but that wouldn't catch you. Literally Chino Whoever wrote that speech I want no part of them. Because the next day. I am deplorable Lama proud deplorable, right. craziest thing but ours is there in your hand president trump he's at his second. Of the day and I think he said there's two more there's four he's doing today. That's an limits. Pennsylvania and I just want to remind you again folks in contrast here. You take the president who's doing these rallies anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half, and there's not a wasted moment in them. In every moment of these rallies is productive. He's either likey just did reciting the first term success stories or he's announcing the second term agenda or he is shoring up support. He's thanking the people who were there whatever there's not a moment that goes by that's wasted it's not substantive. And I really want you to contrast. These rallies with what you're getting from the Democrats, which a big fat zero, the Democrats Biden Kamala. Harris take your pick I mean even Alexander Cortazar nobody capable of this. There's nobody on the other side capable of reciting with pride. Their their agenda, there's nobody that's capable. Of. In any way shape manner or form attempting. To convince you of the superiority of their agenda, their ideas they're not doing anything of the sort. This man can stand up an hour, an hour and a half without notes. And tell you he wants to do. He can recite when he has done he can make his promises for the future and so forth. I mean when it boils down to it folks, there isn't a choice here. You don't really have a choice when it comes to voting for president. The only choices donald trump. There is no other choice. It doesn't make any sense. This race is about a number of different things. But one thing that it's about. You got. A Guy who loves America? Who wants it to be better every day than it was the day before and the reason is he loves the American people. He wants the American people to Prosper. He wants them to be happy he wants the American people. To be able to experience all that the promise of America contains on the other side. You have a candidate Joe Biden who is backed by people who do not believe in American greatness. They do not believe that America is even good place. They make America's deeply flawed. It is deeply racist and bigoted and homophobic and all these other things. They believe this country needs to be ripped apart and reconstituted as a socialist nation. They don't believe in the decency and goodness of America to date they don't believe in the decency and goodness of America as founded and Donald. Trump does there is no choice here. Now, if you're on the fence or if you don't see it this way I, beg of you, you must see it this way. The Democrat Party does not they're not the Democrat, party? Of JFK they're not the Democrat Party thirty years ago we're not in a competition. It's not. You know it used to be able to be said that all Americans wanted the same things. We just had different philosophies how to get there. Well. We don't want the same things now. The Democrats do not want what Democrats used to Democrats used to say they wanted prosperity for people they just thought government should provide it. They used to say that they wanted freedom and liberty and all that for the American. They don't say that anymore they don't believe that anymore the Democrat Party has been taken over and Co opted by the far left of the world. There is no choice. We do not want the same things. With simply disagreements over how to get there. The American left and the Democrat Party does not want American prosperity for individuals I have to take a break folks all the clock will take it and be right back after this.

Why do it at all if you don't want to be seen by anybody They don't want their lives to get out there to the public. They don't want to be accountable for the words they say, don't sell your your theory is that this much Democrat politicians telling each other what the agenda is but nobody else?

"Hello. Hi, Mega Mega Dido that listening to you forever. 30 years. Thank you, sir. But I just want to say Biden does not do campaign events. He does video production, and then he came to the South Field, Michigan under 16 to do a health care event. And no one knew where one I went down to the city to try to find out where it is and no one in the clerk's office knew, they said they wish they did. Later On that evening, it was reported in the Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press that it was that at the Beach Woods Recreation Center in Southfield, which is that completely and temporary closed facility. I went there. The next day took pictures and solemn going on. Thought two. Huge son doubt, General. Let me interrupt you here because of vanishing time. Why do you think that you You say that these events are all staged that they do not want the public of these events? Why? Why? Because they don't want people to see plastic Joe Biden, who is not a real person. Well, I know. But then why do this at all? Why have events where they're only inviting politicians of these things? Why do it at all if you don't want biking to be seen by anybody They don't want their lives to get out there to the public. They don't want to be accountable for the words they say no. So your Your theory is that this much of Democrat politicians telling each other what the agenda is, but nobody else. They're being honest with each other about what they're going to do, but they don't want anybody who's voting toe happen to know what it is. That makes total sense to me. They don't I don't think they have any confidence the public would show up anyway. I think.

"With Nolan Finley, You confined him. Ah, lot of places. He'll tell us where for his podcasts and other programming that he's involved with. He happens to be the big deal. If the Detroit News over the editorial section let me just see if I still worked for him. I don't even know I haven't looked yet. Yep, I'm still there. I'm on the opinion page for the Detroit News Every Monday. We You know, Nolan, I had to check. It's always smart. All the businesses in our business is you always check before you say it. So they're Nolan is Nolan is my boss along with angry Jackson? Brendan Clary got a lot of bosses over there for the one column a week. But I always enjoy reading you and Ingrid and I assume soon will be reading Brendan around there, but you had amazing article yesterday. It's been clear for a while. You're not obviously backing President Trump for re election, But you make some great lines here When you say just because you might think Joe Biden is better than Trump, no matter what. You still should want to know Just how bad Biden is, and this is all about This laptop allegedly abandoned by Hunter Biden at a repair shop now in the hands of the FBI, reportedly being held as evidence in an unspecified money laundering scheme. Which is being mostly ignored by the primetime institutional media, Except for you and me and Fox. Well, I mean, there are a few folks take a look at it. But I'm surprised Paula the lack of interest here. I mean, if you if you compare this and you know you mentioned I'm not a trump plan haven't been from the beginning. But fair is fair. If you look at The standard of believability for anything that suggested about Trump. I mean, uh, you know, most of the most of what we read is anonymously. Sources. Source. Secondhand stores in this case of 100 by laptop and emails. You have a you have physical evidence. And on the record sources right And, you know, I think we should be more interested in. You know, I've said from the beginning, it's possible that both these guys could be that Well, the reality is, is you point out frankly, in in your column in that was at yesterday's Detroit News. No. One in yesterday's column, you point out I mean, let's be fair. It's worth noting that unlike many of the allegations raised against Trump and blasted out there by everyone in the institutional media ad nauseum these assertions against Vice President Joe Biden and his son and other family members. Come with an on the record source and physical evidence attached. I gave a story a long while ago that I had checked out with a real estate person I know. And Joe Biden and I think his brother Jim and Hunter Biden's were involved in the purchase of a house. In in Philadelphia, I'll say but one of the ritzy suburbs there of Philadelphia. And they said, I'm just making the figures now. But the house was ah, available for 800,000, and they wanted to do a deal. I spoke to the broker who had lunch with them to go over this. They wanted to do a deal where it went in the books as a $600,000 house. And they would give 200,000 under the table. Well, I I didn't get it at first, but that's money laundering. It's also avoiding the due taxes the taxes it would be due. On a house transaction. So this is kind of like it's been from different areas on different angles over the years. Kind of like how we can figure out Joe Biden has all of those beautiful houses. On a salary for 47 years. That couldn't buy you a house like that one of them. Well, and that's why I mentioned in the column in 2008. The New York Times did a story on how we bought is Beach House, and it turns out some campaign backers and very wealthy people from some Biden supporters and people who had business before his committee bought his house. At a very inflated rate sold him the land for the new The house and underinflated great and then loaded the money to build it. You know, that's not OK. I mean, it may be legal. Asi points out, you know? No. Nobody's accusing you of doing anything illegal yet, But you know, it's a good question is, is it ethical? And is it the sort of leadership We're looking for 47 years in politics, complained all his life about how little he's made. And yet he lives like a king made something on the order of 14 16 million over the last two or three years on book sales and speeches. Now he's no Ah Mitch Albom. If you will, in terms of his book riding, you have to wonder who bought these books and you paid him to speak and what they were after. And you know, a Zay said. We can't pretend just because he's not Donald Trump. That is, you know, squeaky clean, pure politician. He isn't and we should be asking more questions going in. Nolan Finley, editorial page editor. Of course, Carrie Miles is the editor and publisher of The Detroit News. And you end this column from Sunday's paper, and you have the editorial section on the Sunday paper. You control that. It's your last line. About the Biden charges and all of that, if it's riel America ought to know before it replaces one crook with another. So tell me. What brought you to say that? You think Donald Trump is a crook in these kinds of same circumstances? I haven't heard anything like that at this point, but I'm all ears. But you look at the Donald Trump's prepared her as well as the businessman. These last 35 40 years and you know, there are a lot of things you have to ask questions about, Uh, You know, I think again, Paul. It's possible that they're both bad. And, you know, maybe we ought to be right and Paul W. Smith, our palace. Ah, but there's no question about maybe because the Biden story is pretty rock solid, given the evidence and the FBI who is for Joe Biden had to tell the truth that they have the computer and it is Biden's computer and they are looking at and have been since last year money laundering, But of course, they're not going to bring that up before the election because it would hurt their candidate. And probably after election. You'll never hear another word about it. Well, I don't know. All I can tell you is if the president would have picked former Congressman Mike Rogers to run the FBI, he would have been a lot better off. I said it at the time. I'll say it even more So now. Because he's there doing him no favors. Yeah. He should have done that You should have, you know, but you know you be. I shouldn't be doing him favors are working against them. They should be playing it straight up in the problem we've had over the last several years, apparently is they have been played it straight up. They've had their finger on the scale and become when you get to the point where you can't trust the institutions of government. To Ah, bee, not partisan and to do their jobs fairly and not try to influence the outcome of the election. Ah, not sure you have much of a Republican club. Yeah, I'm afraid you're right about that.

Boeing 787 Dreamliner Production To Move
"Boeing move all seven eight, seven dreamliner production to South Carolina. Well, Boeing made the decision we talked about previously all assembly of the seven eight seven dreamliner will be consolidated in South Carolina this ends production of the seventy, eight seven or will in Washington. State. The Detroit? News reports that Seattle based commercial airplanes. CEO Stand Deal said the move to consolidate the work in North Charleston South. Carolina will be done by mid twenty, twenty one according to our best estimate. I guess this is a decision that's kind of not unexpected mid twenty twenty one sounds pretty quick to me Yeah I mean but I I WANNA make sure I've got this right. Was It south Charleston North Carolina or was it the other way round? Oh. So so south North North Charleston South Carolina. Okay. I think I've got that. Okay. Right now it's I don't think it was unexpected at all I mean and actually Not even just now I mean, Boeing has wanted you know since the time they open that place in South Carolina's nonunion shop I mean I think the the the people at the head shed have been looking just itching for ways to. To move as much production there as they can because they don't want to deal with the with the unions. And there's some manufacturing issues as well as we've said, the after mid few slows sections of the dreamliner assembled in North Charleston in those sections get airlifted on the dream lifter cargo plane for for Washington. State. But the seventy eight, seven, Dash Ten, mid fuselage is too long to fit inside the dream lifter. So there's no way to get it to Washington state. So you've gotTa have some. final assembly in. You. Got Me doing it. In In South Carolina. if you WANNA do the DASH ten. What happens in South Carolina? By I'm starting to know. There is that logistical issue. There's no doubt about that but of course they they've known about that for quite a long time that it was coming. I don't. Personally I. Think they just said this is a great time because WHO's going to really give us any Gulf because we're so involved with so many other things and everybody hates Boeing right now. Anyway. Well I. Think. The whole seven, three, seven. Max. debacle has has helped move it in this direction elated announced back in April that they were gonNA produce production to ten planes a month. Now, they're down to six planes a month, and you know with low production volumes just doesn't make sense to have two lines open. The the big issue is is probably will cost around one thousand jobs in Washington, which is. Really really unfortunate. So yeah, I mean the whole the whole Boeing thing just continues to you know have A. Backlash in you know different areas affecting more and more people. I. Wonder if they'll off they Boeing will offer to provide relocation assistance for the The Washington. State employees. That was my first thought. Then I started thinking well, you know maybe the volume is so low now and looks like we'll be for a that they don't need. The move may be any of the Washington workforce down to South Carolina. Yep. That's my guess in the if they do need people is probably you know very few that they they need. Maybe, a few specialists you really think they want to move union labor from Washington to South Carolina. I I was just GonNa. Say Dark and cynical. I don't think the Union House? How would that work? I? Mean you can't have. A shop that's part union in part nods when there's no contract down there now Charleston. So you have to all be nine union. So I mean, if there was a movie, if somebody did choose to move if they were offered that I would assume, they would have to give up their union membership and become non union employees like the others chur and who's going to do that I mean I, think the job I if it's a matter of keeping your job and losing it, maybe I think people are realistic but. I, don't think there's any intention of Boeing moving anybody. You know probably the and and and the other thing is it doesn't matter because the culture as far as. Issues with the systems in south. Carolina. Are just as bad. There's dreamliner issues. As well as all of the Washington issues. So it's not like Boeing's culture in that division is any better than Boeing's culture in Washington right now. They're they're screwed up across the board with the possible exception of St Louis. But that's really not bowing that's mcdonnell-douglas so.
Twenty-Five Years Later, Ford Resurrects the Bronco
"If you're an offroad aficionado or even just WANNA be. This story is a big deal. After a quarter century Ford is resurrecting the Ford Bronco a direct rival to the jeep. Ford produce the Bronco for thirty straight years starting in nineteen, sixty six. The vehicle had only two doors reportedly one reason why Ford discontinued it in Nineteen ninety-six consumer sentiment was shifting toward four doors. Historians say the Bronco Developed Cult Status. After it was discontinued today, the beefy muscular vehicles, a sentimental favourite restored vintage models can sell for up to two hundred thousand dollars with a corporate unit called Ford icons. Ford is Heavily Marketing Nostalgia that division includes the Bronco, a Mustang and a new line of Ford F one fifty pick-up trucks, including a hybrid version, and soon to be debuted all electric. And Nostalgia sells, but it's far from the only reason. The automakers releasing a Bronco for the twenty first century. The company is capitalizing on a trend according to the automaker offroad vehicle, so called rugged SUV's. Twice, as popular as regular SUV's CNN reports that has engineered the new bronco models for quote hard off road driving. You know the kind that allows you to quote. Get far from civilization. An even stay there for awhile. Is the perfect escape for pandemic induced cabin fever. Get a dose of Adrenalin while avoiding the plague. It's a combination made for advertising. Heaven Kit needs to be the jeep wrangler as the Juggernaut of off road vehicles. CNBC reports that automakers have been trying to quote dethrone the Wrangler for decades. Without much success. Even during the pandemic GPS kept selling Fiat Chrysler sold an average of seventeen thousand jeep wrangler every month for the last five years according to the Detroit news last year, almost a quarter, million wrangler flew off dealership. Lots and experts say jeep owners are loyal. To a fault. Still Ford executives have moxie. They're predicting sales of two hundred thousand broncos over the next year, according to Automotive News. and. Keep in mind that the low end version of the new line. The broncos sport won't even be out until years end higher end versions of the Bronco won't be at dealerships until next spring. Ford is doing everything it can to make the Bronco enticing enough to away jeep lovers, and of course to persuade new off roaders to come into the Ford camp that includes besting the ramblers largest tires thirty three inches with whopping thirty five inch tires, Ford says a Bronco outfitted with the almost three foot in diameter tires can easily go through a couple of feet of water models also come with removable roofs and doors. Drivers can store the doors in the Bronco. For, it says. At about thirty thousand dollars, the price of the two door base Bronco comes in at only two hundred dollars more than the base price of the jeep wrangler at the top in a limited number of first edition for door Bronco started about sixty one thousand dollars, Ford began taking one hundred dollar deposits on Broncos last Monday when it released the new line I edition reservation slots sold out within a couple of hours. Still as bullish as the auto press is about the Broncos, the release comes against bleak backdrop for the auto industry. Overall vehicle sales plummeted when covid nineteen emerged shut the industry down for two months recently, both Ford and GM reported second-quarter sales declines of about thirty three percent from a year earlier jeep parent, Fiat Chrysler did even worse with sales down forty percent. And that puts a lot of pressure on Ford to live up to its promise of adding a billion dollars to the bottom line next year through Bronco Sales. And it adds pressure Chrysler to keep jeep at the top of the OFFROAD HEAP Stakes is high as the boulder strewn rocky mountains. The war between Bronco in gene. We'll be fascinating to watch.

"Publisher of the Detroit News, and what a pleasure and a privilege. It is for us to say Hello to each other here on WJR and by the way, by by way of full disclosure. I right. Column every Monday in the Detroit News, you may not even know that. But I do Gary I worked for you. I do and it's called coming. Oh, good one. Yeah. Good job. I don't know. But everybody hopes so and he certainly he knows that everybody wants him to play. But there's some good reasons. But that's another story. But you have the headline which I don't write says Detroit once you Tiger Woods in today's column. Matter of fact, you know, what I love about you, Gary is that your home or you were born in Royal Oak while I was I was thinking about that just looking back. I might be the first editor of the Detroit News since Ben burns who who is actually a Michigan native will. That's great news. I think that matters. I think you grew up in Midland, you graduated from Athens high school in Troy you went to Michigan state, go green. There's a lot of things that that matter to people within the sound of my voice, and it matters that the guy heading up the Detroit News is all of what you are. And what you've been you've done a lot. You've been metro editor deputy managing editor just a whole. Bunch of things. Now, you're at the very top. Because there are a lot of editor positions in a newspaper that sometimes it's hard to know, what people what they're really in charge of. But for you now from a business standpoint, you're in charge of everything if the Detroit News. Well, I am this largely the aditorial product. Of course, we're where the were in a partnership with the the newspaper partnership, the free press and news continue to be competitive newsrooms, but their business operations are combined. So it'll be my job to help look out for the interests of the Detroit News in that partnership and Detroit News readers and to make sure that the newsroom is humming along as it has bad, but continues to trying to get people the depth and explanatory reporting that they expect have come to count on for almost a hundred fifty years, Gary miles, the new editor and publisher of the Detroit News here with us on the Paul W j r I have to tell you that been they've been taught for a long time about one of the newspapers going out of business happily. I don't hear that very much anymore. Does that mean, everybody's maybe unhealthier footing. Well, I think the last couple of years certainly have been better. I understand that they've been very successful for the for the newspapers in in. You know, coming in the news and free press, the partnership, of course, you have to you know, it's been a tumultuous time for the industry, you know, like some people in Detroit, maybe watching is, you know, the company that owns the news is actually involved in a proxy fight or has been that will culminate this week to buy the company that was the free press. And that could mean who knows what for Detroit and other newspapers. But it'll be something we'll all be watching closely. But despite the, you know, the the success of the past couple of years, they you know, what are they saying about stocks? You got a pass performance doesn't necessarily indicate future. We'll be watching closely. I wasn't even following this as you call it proxy fight. But it's funny because people in the past the free press was stronger than the news what you're telling me, the company that owns the news might be buying the free press. And would it not? I hope it would be who've them to still have two different newspapers. Well, essentially what they're at. Now, they they've made a bit January of this week is going to be an energy enterprises, which owns the Detroit News is trying to get a seat on the on. The board was trying to get a pulse late. I think now technically it's looking for three seats on the board of Gannett, which owns the free press. So, you know, we'll see what happens, but other been a lot of as you said there's been a lot of talk over the years about what might happen. And yet here we still are great newspaper some of the law. Yeah, you're right about that. It used to be we thought of growing up in Monroe Michigan. The thought of the free press is being more liberal in the Detroit News has being more conservative. Do you look at it that way as the the entity and publisher well in terms of news coverage we're trying to play it straight down the middle at the news. And I think the free press probably is too though, I can't speak for them. The news is, you know, the most valuable asset of any paper is its reputation for telling the truth, and that's without bias one way or the other. That's certainly true that the that the editorial pages of of the news and free press lean in different directions. Detroit News story libertarian and the free press more liberal, you know, I expect that will stay that way. At least I'd aren't okay. All right. Well, you have a specific goal in mind that you can share with us that you'd like to accomplish rather quickly in your new position as editor and publisher of the Detroit News, Gary, well, we wanna keep up the the depth. And and and honest reporting that people have come to expect and even ramp it up. In the days ahead. So we're looking forward to continue to cover this community in the way, we have and stronger than ever I hope. All right, anyway, we can be of service along the way you let us know.

"Headline in the Detroit News says that you strip the gas tax hike from the transportation budget. I'm not sure that's quite accurate because it implies that it was in there to begin with. That's correct this. This is just the people should be just comfortable and calm. This is the first step of multi step process that prosecuted budget. There's a lot of ago, she should take place. But quite frankly, the Senate Republicans don't really have to worry too much about damaging the governor's proposal because her around the state and making her presentation says done a pretty good. You have of that all by itself, and you base that on the marketing resources group poll that seventy five percent don't like the idea of a one hundred seventy percent increase in the gas tax, plus two other things in pools by us independently in in parallel have affirmed that in one case, it was actually even worse. So. You know, the the appetite for citizens of Michigan to embrace that kind of change and guest tax is just nonexistent. And I believe overtime budget process. And then we'll prove that's unnecessary. Nobody. Nobody disagreed with the notion that we need to continue to find an spend more money on Roach on a perpetual basis. But we think there's other ways that we can accomplish besides simple solution of just can't stacks. Have you decided on a number that you need to increase the the amount of revenues for roads? I know before it was between one and a half to two billion dollars. She's looking to raise one point nine billion through this strategy that she's laid out have we decided on a number of what makes sense. So first of all let's start with this guy. There is no perfect number. It depends on who does the analysis and one of their Simpson's are it's a moving target. And I don't think I don't believe there is an exact perfect number. I think the industry is actually sending a very clear signal that we're approaching a point where spending in sending a lot more money is going to be sold in near immediate inflation costs. Now, the operating engineers and some other skilled groups of Indus if said that with all the other projects that are planned to take place in Michigan. In addition to roads, they're running out of resources. And so I think it's more a judgment not how much we need. But how much can we have Zohrab in a responsible way? So I'll just I'll just be blunt with you. I think that I think that trying to get to two point five billion inclusive of the one point two that we will have a common. In this next budget. So I think is a good next step in terms of the what you did today. I know that you did pull forward some revenues or some spending. Tell me what you did today that will put a little more pavement out there. So two thousand fifteen we passed a Bill that would ultimately resulted one point two million dollars more on roads for perpetuity than what we have historically spent and what we in that was to come that was to come to fruition in the budget year. Twenty one twenty two we are pulling that ahead one year in in accomplishing it in this current, but we're working on this current budget. They were working on. So we will have taken a year out of the the timeframe accelerated it, and so we at the end of the two thousand nineteen and twenty budget year. We will have have achieved the additional one point two billion dollars on top of our historical spending day. So it's between one hundred twenty one hundred and fifty mil. More than what we were expecting in the twenty twenty budget year one hundred and fifty six million. Okay. Okay. All right. So the the Democrats are firing back here. They they called you coward saying that this should be done in the budget process. Now, not waiting until later. I wanna give you an opportunity to respond to to to their complaint. Well, besides you citing the old poem that we learned in grade school bus, sticks sticks and stones. No, I've been I've maintained from the beginning that the long-term road funding needs to be a separate conversation to the budget process. If they happen to come together fine. But making one dependent on the other in my mind, just compromises both products. And I know my governor doesn't believe doesn't agree with that. She wants to make a deal so to speak. But I think that that would that would leave out far too, many creative ideas that we haven't fully fleshed out yet. And you know, like like I said moment ago. Guess tax increase is the simplest solution. But I'm not convinced this the best to do. So you're not taking it off the table DEA think that we'll have something to discuss in the firm of an alternative road plan by the time you and I visit up in mackinac at the intimate. I absolutely believe loyal. Yes. Okay. Good. I'm looking forward to doing that. We're putting that down in, you know. Okay. All right. We will look forward to that. In the meantime, as you say nothing off the table. She has said that unless there's a real roads plan in the budget that she won't sign the budget. You think you can come to an agreement over the definition of real- between now? And then no that's going to be heard. That's going to be hurt determination, we will deliver to my governor, a a balanced and properly proportioned a budget by early to mid June.

MSU president to resign in wake of Larry Nassar sex abuse scandal
"From an interim perspective at Michigan would say, so yeah, it's been a horrific year for Michigan state for all the tangled instead of involved with Larry Nassar on the sexual abuse that went on there with USA gymnastics and all the tentacles of that organization, but John Engler was appointed the interim president of Michigan state during this troubling and difficult time for a lot of people took over for Lou. Simon who himself resigned under heavy criticism in the handling of the Larry Nassar who is now facing criminal charges. Police about the Larry Nassar investigation, and she resigned and angler is now resigning because of things that came out of his mouth that are simply inexplicable. I mean, basically saying that some of the victims were enjoying the Larry Nassar, a sexual assault case, we're enjoying the spotlight a little too much. I mean, this is the exact quote for people who may not have heard. There are a lot of people who are touched by this survivors who haven't been in the spotlight, he told this to the Detroit News in some ways, they have been able to deal with this better than the ones who have been in the spotlight who are still enjoying that moment at times, you know, the awards and recognition enjoying the moment. It just blows my mind as thinking that. Okay, one. If you're if you're thinking that, you know, they're really getting a lot of us. But then then saying it saying that out loud. I mean, let's be honest. What an idiot. I mean, are you serious? So this is a guy who did that. All this fall out. They call a meeting for Thursday that the board, and they say basically resign or were firing you. Yup. So he writes, an eleven page resignation letter not one time in the letter eleven pages. Does he mention the words he said all he does is basically listening accomplishments on how Michigan? In state is a better off place. Now that he was the interim president for a year. It's embarrassing mean what an embarrassment. I mean, you wanna talk about pouring bleach on something. He just wipe it everything out and start over again there. Holy I don't believe what's going on there. One idiot after another speaking there sarahspain wrote a great piece for ESPN w that profiles the last year for angler that is ripe with a number of other very regrettable choices and ways in which he has made Michigan State University, a less hospitable place than it already was for these survivors of this awful instant, well, look at just one thing in December angler closed a ten million dollar fund set aside by the school to help Nassar survivors, pay mental health care bills. That alone should have been enough for them to say, you're not the right guy here. But it is mind boggling to use the words enjoying it. And not understanding what was taken from each one of these victims. But I think that's the thing. Is this guy like all the leadership? That was a part of what happened when Larry Nassar was met allowed this to go on we talked about it condemning Larry Nassar was easy because finding right hearing that out is easy. It's finding everyone else allowed it to happen along the way that becomes just as important in making sure this doesn't happen again. When you have the benefit of being the one who comes in at the end of his and is seen all of the atrocities and says, I am now tasked with at least being partially responsible for bringing us all to a place that makes life better not only for the victims and the survivors. But for people going forward that don't have to deal with this. When you've got all that as the backdrop, and you're still viviscal is in this process. It's a reminder that just because you have status, you know, he was the former Michigan governor before this and just because you have risen to a certain point. And are given a position of leader does not make you qualified to lead. No. And the fact that he wrote that eleven page resignation letter. What? What you what he just sort of written? I'm sorry and move on. That's it. I don't need the other eleven pages with thousands of words just eleven Genoa eleven pages on what he did to the positive for Michigan state while he was there and not one thing about what he had said it just it just blows. My do need to read the article that there are item as for after item of other things in his tenure there a things he did that you just. Adults. These are adults who are supposed to be the smart people running organizations it. It's incredible. We'll end again. So we look at him to and we've got to look at everyone else around. Michigan state who put this guy is track record into the spotlight. The kids the students the people that could be victims of other things like this in the future deserve better leadership at this university. And they're not getting it instead of eleven pages.

Get the towels out the the White House because it's a it's a nasty one. And you don't want it. So I'll make my apologies from the get-go. Interesting headline that grabbed my eye from the Detroit News and op Ed piece with the caption, just how bad or Michigan roads and the answer from our next guest is not as bad as you might think though how we fund them really need some attention. Chris Douglas rights for the mackinac center abortive scholars he also is at the university of Michigan Flint he is chair of their economics department. Chris Doug was going to have you with us. Thanks for having me. I say they're not as bad as we thought break that. Down for folks. Because it really matters. What pavement you're on in who controls it? Right. Yeah. That's right. So if you're talking about roads, what did I you or designation interstate highway state roads those carry over half of all passenger traffic at seventy five percent of truck. Traffic those road relatively good shape. The pavement as seventy five percent of those roads are rated as being fair or good condition, although dot project at the conditional worse over deduct six or seven years, which is a concern. But the real problem right now is roads controlled by the county road commission. So county roads at Rhodes controlled by cities villages. Your local city street your subdivision and so forth over half of those roads are rated be poor condition. And so why is that is it because we didn't divvy up the funding pie equitably or have they been not spending as much money or investing the way. They should why is that? Yeah. That's hard to say. Although I think there are several reasons. So I if you look at the two thousands road funding fell behind it flation because the gas tax was sticks at nineteen cents never increase the rate of inflation or for crude oil prices and pavements meat from crude oil. So the big crude oil prices we saw last decade met that road. Our sister to go as far. Also, cities and counties. A lot of lot of those municipalities probably deferred road maintenance at school co budgets got tight. It's easy to delay pavement project or two for a few years to meet more pressing needs. And now that's catching up with us. And there's just far more miles of those roads than US in Ambrose. There's something like ten thousand miles or so in Michigan of those type of roads. But there's coast to I believe one hundred thousand Cody and Wilco roads. So you just have to spread those dollars over many more roads than those St. rose to you still come to the conclusion that we need to invest about three billion more per year. And of course, this is similar to what Gretchen Whitmer said on this program back on Friday. And what Bill Schutte has said, well, we just need to divvy up. The we need to spend the money we have better. We'll get to that in a moment. But you say that right now if you were to really go with a user based formula, the commercial trucks are only spending about one sixth of what they need to spend relative to the damage or the wear and tear that they do to roads. Explain that to me. So that's right. It's that a passenger car does a centrally no pavement damage when it drive down the road it rounds down to zero whereas the commercial truck if you're talking about eighty thousand pound semi truck that's doing something like sixty cents eighty cents per mile worth of damage, but it's already paying about eleven cents per mile diesel taxes. So the damage being done by trucks as far greater than the price. They're paying to use the roads. Which is what reason why the roads are in the kitchen that they're they're in. But we would still pay that tax. If we boosted the diesel tax, right? I mean, it's still trickles down to consumers or end users. Sure, it'll be reflected in the price of consumer goods. But you could say, well, then the price of consumer goods fully reflects the. Cost of producing those goods. So for if we weren't of drifted again, we're probably going to be moving away from gasoline over the course of the next thirty years, anyway, so what kind of a user base system or user funded system. Do we really need to view? Yeah. So I think that what you'd have to do is based user the user fee off of miles traveled. They call the vehicle miles traveled tax this probably could obsessive. But essentially of all tracking. How many miles are driven out a particular vehicle charge you tax per mile, maybe two three four cents per mile. So you if you drive four hundred miles in a month, you would pay for one hundred times, whatever the tax rate is for your monthly roads p. That there'd be no gas tax. I would really at some pushback from folks saying, I don't want any kind of a monitor telling anybody how many I don't want big brother watching how many miles I dry. Yes. So there's probably a couple of responses to that first big brother already watching Facebook, Google maps, if you have on third year car, they know your location ready. So you might say, well, what's one more entity knowing your vocation? Second. You could always contract that out to a third party, not the government. So the government wouldn't know where you are the third party would. And I'm not that technologically savvy. But I would suspect that there be a way to monitor miles driven not using vocation, but just somehow reading off the odometer. So does it tell you exactly where you are? But you just get buried reading every month about the total number of miles traveled. Yeah. Actually, you might be able to get it. So that the insurance companies would give you a, you know, some kind of a per diem discount because they would also get data from that, you know, that the data that would come from that could be used by others in that could help bring down other driving costs. Thanks so much. Chris interesting reading, and we will look forward to more op Ed pieces from you in the mackinac center. Elsewhere. Okay. Sounds great. Thanks for having me on his Douglas economist at the university of Michigan Flint now, tell me what you think about that. Should we move to a user based model with an on-board meter that?
