A highlight from Charles Duke
"Folks, welcome to The Eric Mataxas Show, sponsored by Legacy Precious Metals. There's never been a better time to invest in precious metals. Visit LegacyPMInvestments .com. That's LegacyPMInvestments .com. Welcome to The Eric Mataxas Show. Did you ever see the movie The Blob starring Steve McQueen? The blood curdling threat of The Blob. Well, way back when, Eric had a small part in that film, but they had to cut his seed because The Blob was supposed to eat him. But he kept spitting him out. Oh, the whole thing was just a disaster. Anyway, here's the guy who's not always that easy to digest. Eric Mataxas! I've already told you really everything I think you need to know about the man who lets me call him Charlie. A warm Socrates in the City round of applause for Brigadier General Charles Moss Duke. You go in the far chair right there. All right, I better get this out of the way right off the bat. Did you really walk on the moon? Be honest, because you're among friends. If it didn't happen, there's forgiveness. But is that true? It's true. About 20 years ago, the moon landings were a big hoax. And I was interviewed by somebody on NBC. And and I said, as Katie Couric, and I said, Katie, if we faked it, why did we fake it nine times? You're going to fake some, do it once and shut up. Right. But we went to the moon nine times, had six landings on the moon, and I was the fifth landing of the six. So I don't know, though, if you really want to be clever, you could you could do it several times just to throw people off, you know. Charlie, it's I'm not kidding. I go places and I talk and every now and again, I will bump into someone who is a flat earther. And I realize this because I would use it as the ultimate example of what we all dismiss. We don't take seriously. And there are people like they're out there. So have you ever encountered one who actually thought that you were that who confronted you personally and said this never happened? My first encounter with this fellow, I don't remember his name now, but he called me in the middle of the night and said, how do you get your number, Charlie? We're in the phone book, actually. All right. That's that's on you. That's on you. Not many, not many phone books left, but back 20 years ago. And that's called me. He says, my name's so -and -so. And he says, do you are you Charlie Duke? I said, I'm Charlie Duke. He said, Well, you claim you walked on the moon. And I said, Yeah, I walked on the moon. He said, Well, I have irrefutable proof that you did not land on the moon. And I said, Well, why don't you send me some of this irrefutable proof? So I hung up and he sent me a grainy video that he'd done. And it was a fake video, actually. And so anyway, I saw him, a friend of his showed up at a meeting in Japan. Yeah, I don't believe Japan exists. And this guy and this guy approached Buzz Aldrin in his office in L .A. one time. And he said he had a Bible in his hand. He says, swear on this Bible that you walked on the moon. And Buzz said, Get out of here. And the guy kept the guy kept bugging him. And finally, Buzz just popped him right right in the middle of the nose and knocked him down. And the so guy sued Buzz. But the lawyer says, You deserve it. I mean, the judge said, You deserve it. Get out of here. Wow. We need more judges like that. Yeah. So anyway, I had a similar experience in Japan with this guy. But the evidence is irrefutable that we landed on the moon that we did. You don't need to convince this group. We we believe you. It's kind of why we're here. Well, I mean, we need an argument. The rocks are six hundred pounds of moon rocks are totally different than earth rocks. The photographs that we took, you cannot fake photograph. Back in those days, you didn't have the technology to fake photographs like you could do it today. And so the photographs all real. The rocks are real. The experiments we brought back. We left the laser reflector up there. And it's all all that's being transmitted. I mean, you can so we can hit it with a laser from here. Yeah. And so there's evidence is overwhelming that the moon rocks are real and that we did land on the moon six successful times. I want to ask you a few geological questions, which is not typical of me, but I want to get into that. But first, I want to I just want to go backwards. You know, I was kidding around about the idea that once you've walked on the moon, you know, you know, people don't really care where you went to college or whatever you're you know, you've been published in the Atlantic Monthly or whatever it is, because, you know. But how did your path go? I alluded to the fact that you started in the Naval Academy, so you didn't even have it as a gleam in your eye to to be an astronaut, because in those days, in those days, there wasn't a space program. We were trying to launch rockets, but not nobody was talking about people. And so I graduated from the Naval Academy in 1957, and there wasn't an Air Force Academy in 1957. There wasn't. They started it in 1955, but the first class wasn't going to graduate until 1959. So up until that point, they would allow West Pointers and midshipmen to volunteer for the Air Force. It was up to 25 % of the class. And so I fell in love with airplanes and at the Naval Academy. And so the decision was Naval Aviation or Air Force. And I was leading Air Force, but I really didn't know. So I took my physical my senior year, first class year, we called it. And I said, and the doctor after I got finished, he said, Well, Mitch and the Duke, you don't qualify for naval aviation, but the Air Force will take you. So that's true. That's true. True story. And so I ended up in the Air Force. And the whole story was the doctor says, we have found a stigmatism in your right eye and you don't qualify for naval aviation, but the Air Force will take you. So so anyway, they're desperate. They're just getting started. They'll take anybody. Yeah. Did you I mean, I have to ask you this question as a kid. Did you ever have any inkling or premonition that you would do something like go to the moon or was it simply completely, you know, because I grew up at a time when I was a kid, people started going to the moon. So I can't think of a time when nobody was doing that. Well, I I'm 86 and I can remember Pearl Harbor. I was six years old, my twin brother. And it was a very I can remember it vividly. And so my dad went off to the Navy and at 35 years old. And we ended up in South Carolina with my grandmother and my mom. And and my heroes were that greatest generation is broke. And so I wanted to serve my country and I chose to go to the Naval Academy because and because my dad had been a Navy. And I was as a kid, I can remember making these baltic wood planes and throwing them off the front top story of my grandmother's house. And we could get some matches and we'd like to tail and we'd throw this thing off. So it was like the zeros crashing, you know, and so I can remember those kind of things. But certainly it wasn't any. I fell in love with airplanes, I guess, in those days. And I had this adventure spirit, I call it. And there's a book by Dr. Seuss called Beyond Z. And it talks about this kid who learns the alphabet on beyond zebra. Yeah, beyond zebra on beyond zebra. Yeah. And his name was Conrad Cornelius O 'Donnell O 'Dell, a very young man who's learning to spell the A is for ape and the B is for bear. C to C through disease is for zebra. I know them all well, says Conrad Cornelius O 'Donnell O 'Dell, but he almost fell flat on his face on the floor when I picked up the chalk and drew one letter more for the things that I see and the things that I do. I could never spell if I stopped with the Z.

Curious Timing? U.S. Finally Admits Covid Came From China
"I always say, you know what, you get what you vote for. You really do. And right now, we don't have much. We have a president who seems really intent on spending money all over the world so that we can be in conflicts, I think we'd all rather not be in. Look, you gotta do what you gotta do to protect your country. But right now, things are spinning out of control. And this news, that there's suddenly coming forward with in a less than 5 page report. It's like the Dr. Seuss version of an intelligence report. Less than 5 pages if they spoon fed to Congress, which didn't even ask for it. Anyway, now they're telling us, yep, COVID-19, it originated from a lab leak in Wuhan, China. The U.S. Department of Energy finally three years after the fact admitting this, admitting it. I just don't know why they waited until now. I don't know why they're telling us now. It was the idea that if China somehow told the line that none of this was going to come out, they were going to keep it all sealed up, one might think that the administration was possibly trying to get people a little bit angry at China. Is that the idea? Because Biden is seeking support, so he can spend more money in Ukraine and Taiwan. I mean, these are realistic questions. You got to ask, the information was out there earlier, but nobody was allowed to report on it. I mean, I did. I paid the price. I mean, shadow banning shadow banning on steroids. I learned firsthand how severe that is. I mean, how can you have a 168 thousand followers on Facebook, but only 9 likes? On a story, you see that they would not allow this information at
Levi & Jennie Lusko Explain How They Found Their Way to Montana
"So let me take you to a moment in your marriage. I think it was fairly early on when you had this crisis of vocation, maybe if I could call it that the vocation of location, your successful pastor, John Kelly. Yeah, Dr. Seuss, I've read a few of those. But then they were stripped away. Too soon. Too soon. But your pastor in California, you're thriving there. You're very successful. And you bump into somebody who says, hey, you might want to think about coming to Montana or Idaho. Montana, yeah. Yeah, we felt like California made sense for us. You know, all our lives, I actually grew up in Colorado, raised in New Mexico, Jenny from California. We ended up in Orange County. And we were just a mile away from the beach, you know, a couple thousand people in the church we were teaching at, it felt like it all roads had led to that moment. Season passes to Disneyland, you know. It's where God wanted you. It felt right, honestly. And at that point, there came this incredible, ridiculous idea. Go to Montana and start a church. Now, we're not ranchers, you know, I don't look like Kevin Costner. You know, I just don't, it doesn't, it didn't make sense to us. And yet we couldn't, you know, when you know God speaking to you and it almost irritates you because you just know he is and you almost wish you could pretend you didn't hear him. We felt like we needed to move to Montana and started church, which didn't make sense.

When It Comes to Business, Ignore the Real World
"Reworked book with a look at the essay entitled ignore the real world this goes into that common trope that new ideas are bound to fail or that these things may work for a company like base camp but would never work for company x. and as always i'm joined by base camp co-founders and the authors of rework david meyer hanson. Welcome thank you and jason freed. Welcome sean. I've noticed in a lot of these essays. Start with something along the lines of you always hear someone has said xyz and in this case the quote you use is that idea would never work in the real world is still something that that you find pretty prevalent yet. But that's the that's the standard rebuttal. I still is or or or there's a variation of it which is like that would never work for us. That would never work in our company and so that would never work in. The real world is kind of a catchall for all those variations on that rebuttal. But yeah we still hear that. I think what's interesting is that One of the things we heard up until a year ago is that remote work would never work here or there or everywhere. Feel like dr seuss thing there. But what's nice is that that myth was busted obviously know during difficult circumstances but everyone had it was forced to basically work remotely and it it works. Now it's hard in some ways and some people didn't do quite right and there's all their challenges that come up and there's isolation's all that stuff but at least like the real world in that case was forced to reckon with a situation that what were the real world had to give for second people had to try something new it worked so i think anytime you can bust a myth or sort of for someone to try. Something they believe is impossible is a good is a good time was a good moment. And that's what we just had happened of the past year or so. I think the other

It's just it's a delicious subject a thing everybody can live from but before i jump into that We stopped by in this world of great influences. Every mondays dogs and influenza who somebody who's influenced you in your leadership who maybe we wouldn't consider all maybe wouldn't automatically think who's somebody who's had not influence on you want an automatically thinking boy. That's a you know. Dr seuss popped into my mind if i ran. The circus was my favorite book growing up. And i don't know why that is a lot of places a lot of people say. Oh the places you'll go. Which is another fabulous. Dr seuss thome. But if i ran the circus i don't know my dad used to sit down and read that to me all the time. He ran his own company which was heavy construction up in the seattle area Dams bridges tunnels. I mean big time stuff and he said yep life is a little bit like this book.

"dr. seuss" Discussed on Dreas Point of View
"In ten minutes or less no fluff no nonsense prepared to be captivated fascinated and elevated to a different plateau without further ado. Here's your house this dre. You are listening to dreyer's point of view. I am hostess. Tria where the next few minutes talking to you about dr seuss. Episode was actually recorded. A while back. I'm just now putting it out for some reason. So hopefully you'll listen to till the end. It's not nolde subject but it was an interesting one. It was brought up a while back. You as it as a distraction from the insurrection. So am i. what what. What is the deal with dr seuss. We all grew up with it. What's what's the fascination. Most of us grew up reading those books cat in the hat. Green eggs and ham so apparently after months of discussion from researchers they found that two percent of all the characters in the books are of color and the teachers and specialist decided to stop production on six of the book. So six of the books are cancelled from dr seuss and it won't be chosen at read across america day anymore on march second now mike after all these years. I don't know why everybody's trying to get politically correct. Just this past year so i wanted to talk about the six books that are cancelled once offensive to one may not be offensive to others but he has other books. You don't have to read those six here okay. The first one is if i ran the zoo that one offends asians and africans this boy talks about the helpers who all wear their is at a slant shows african men who looked like caricatures and mentions the african island of eureka. Now keep in mind when these books are written decades ago so everything i guess was more acceptable now. Everything is questionable. And to think that i saw it on mulberry street. That book describes a chinese character colored yellow eating bowls of rice and wearing a cone hat. The original version said china man who eats with sticks and it was later changed to chinese man and they removed the color and pigtail third book. That was canceled nick. Elegance pool pronounce correctly about a boy who goes fishing and is told it's too small and he imagines different fish that may come to the pool from the ocean. The offensive part is in you at people or eskimo fish from on hudson bay the next book on beyond zebra features a character called newseum nazim of brassinne who rides a camel like creature called a spicy were spazzy under novum pronouncing that correctly scrambled eggs super as people in very coats that represent. Intuit's innuendo or eskimos. The cats quiz is a book of questions. That has a yellow figure. And a hat asks. How do you have to be japanese now. i guess i would find that one offensive. I haven't read all these books. I really just kind of skimmed it over but those are the six that she are cancelled. Ironically dr seuss spoke against racism and anti-semitism during world war two although he depict japanese with exaggerated racial.

"It's that exact same scenario so we have a long way to go. What you're saying. But i actually feel like in a lot of ways. Were taking a bit of a step backwards because of social media in this kind of stuff. I think that's the other big element in all of this and that so i mean when i look at it i don't i'm not i don't see it has been canceled at all. How many books are there right. Yeah exactly and for me. It's okay there are some that at the time that they will listen Like the book that. I showed you this person who who wrote it. I don't know maybe ali nineteenth century. It's just and this isn't exactly and that's why i brought up the example of my friend. It's context it's context and if my world is this big and in my world. This is what i'm told. That's all i know and only until i have you know this happens or that happens and that has embiid's other people in my world and i start to see. Oh actually my world is not what i thought it was and and we all need that. Gosh that's our human beings just how we are and that we make mistakes and we grow from that so i. I don't see what's happening with. These books cancelled culture with dr seuss at all. I think it's an opportunity It's a it's a learning moment and it's an opportunity for teachers to to pick up the books and have a discussion an us children now what they think about these things. Because how else do we find out what he used. A and sometimes i'll views can be wrong. Sometimes of us can be by is sometimes they can be you know this big. Because that's all you know.

"In various countries around the world. Most of it is not directors entity the children's basis themselves a now. Why am i saying this. I'm saying that there are so many dangers to categorizing at a certain point in their lives and making them a green angle. And that's all he ever going to be but people change. People can become blue circles now and multicolored diamonds. And i. i know from having lived through a Having lived through the transition been in the face of total racism that it takes time for for people to recognize that bay themselves. The our cells are have been racist in in different. Wade's i and and win that when the language in when the images win the programming is so subtle and so pervasive. It's hard to to listen to your own sense of humanity and decide for yourself. What do i think. And what do i feel. Am i appreciate my friend. Who sat there that night and told me that because she was telling me what she felt. It had nothing to do with what you've been told so. I think that where we i. The world is crucial. And if anything you know the when i watched black lives matter. Erupting it was it was. It was heartbreaking. Many many holes knowing that I was in south africa at the time. And knowing that although we've come so far in south africa is still so much of that. That happens i guess. Can i interject. I'm going to take both of you said here in kind of create a bit of a hypothetical situation. So your friends. Let's say your friend had twitter. When she was a kid right like kids nowadays to and at the time when she was a kid she was taught these racists things so she then posted on twitter she then grows up. Meets you in realizes. Oh shit i was being taught racist things. I'm not that person anymore. I've now become a better person. And then goes out in desert job but then what happens in. This is what i think. We're out of this cancel. Culture has gone awry is your friend could be doing a job now and those tweets that she did when she was a kid completely ignorant of anything will then come back to haunt her and i know with even with dr seuss. A lot of people are saying well. They counseled the books not cash tag council culture. I would say if that wasn't a thing going on right now. You know the books might not have been cancelled and in your both of your scenarios where people save something or your friend afterward but You know where people are being canceled for something. They say when they're younger it's that same. It's that exact same scenario so we have a long way to go. What you're saying. But i actually feel like in a lot of ways. Were taking a bit of a step backwards because of social media in this kind of stuff. That's the other big element in all of this. And that. So i mean when i look at it i don't i'm not i don't see it has been cancelled at all. How many books are there. Yeah exactly and for me. It's okay there are some does at the time that they will listen Like the book that. I showed you this person who who wrote it. A nineteenth century. It's just and this isn't exactly and that's why i brought up the example of my friend. Its context it's context and if my world is this big and in my world. This is what i'm told. That's all i know. And only until i have you know this happens or that happens and that has embiid's other people in my world and i start to see.

So i think i think secreted opportunity to to have those discussions for me having There are racism exists in the world. I it exists and is something that we have to respond to and it is our responsibility to do. So and so i feel that when these moments are there to respond to have the discussions to make the changes That's sign that. I'm gonna choose house just going to say definitely a moment to stand the opportunity to stop listening to people especially for people like myself of nyla we will be the first to admit where incredibly even may not even realize that were incredibly privileged just by being white males united site when it comes to an opportunity to lead on most it more importantly i think listening to people is this kind of nightman is when not conversation goes down A to actually listen to people often. We always can not such a week of dialogue about chessel sausages.

I do see why somebody might for the purpose of especially nowadays people are so kind of Being from the us obviously you have certain groups over there. That are very tip stoking arguments and creating conflict so i potentially could see certain people over there creating stuff like this for the purpose of grading conflict but that would be a specific purpose very different than i see dr seuss's intent which is to entertain kids with plenty stories kind of stuff.

"Doesn't mess out yet. it's to be with us. House seems like a great way of processing united. The things that you to talk about over it important to you and you know talking off difficult difficult. Hannah questions going. Go onto the first pau about said i in the question that comes about with this whole doctor. Zeus tough on the discussed today. Bush really you know we always put out each linkage full night. Whatever pose a few questions some public to get a knife. Got a little bit after sections on this topic. Of course Is surrounding the recent consolation will removal of six doctors use titles so we started with a really easy kind of questionable. You may say we'll say these question was A little bit We just went with a pretty simple. Do you agree with a full of six doctors. talks and diplomatic Exception on that was mainly because of us. Seventy percent of people said no on. This is an initial outside and then about thirty percents of people said yes and they would into options. Actually that was given to me. Because i really wanted to split opening point just to see what was said. Just get a non site right. What do you think so a few of the initial replies suda was i generally agree with the council of anything a superior dos Ondon another fasten. Yes but it's not council coach. I know council the books. That wasn't a twitter mob frosting at the mouth about these books but the company dollars license to the books decided to not print or sell any Books they are fully with narrow is to not do this song kanda ping on back on a guy to when What your initial thoughts are not pretty lie site Opening question which wells d agree with the consolation removal of six dr zeus title. Say i'm going to approach this with From from two angles one as an artist and the other as a person who's worked in schools and with children and to have been the books so from an office perspective. I know for myself that there are certain There's a book that i actually created. Twenty years ago. I wrote a children's story and stated it and when i come back to it I saw to share. Its reading it in at school. This elements that. I changed when i read the story when i created it. It was a creation story. And there's something in there about god created the world. When i read the story at all i changed it. Nobody said to me that. I wasn't allowed to read that story. I changed it based on who. I was reading it. I changed the looking at my audience. Knowing i okay. I want my audience to engage with the story from the point that i had written it to the point that i was not a teacher. In all these different schools my view had changed and my view on my own spiritual practice changed my own. I'm going to share it with chilton. I'm working with all right. So did you feel that you. Did you feel that you personally to make those revisions and those like up. -tations to to to include more more than children is enough. I basically changed it in such a way that it was more secular that the language in it became more relatable to more children and didn't exclude any of the children that i was working would not said to me that i had to do that. Mean i could take it any story into. We even really bad ones but it was my own decision even though a special because it was something i had created. I felt that i had a greater responsibility to to it and again thinking of other all sorts of things whenever we shot to fan yesterday. Who actually got me into. The spoken would open mic wild new talking about how in sometimes you read something and then after feeling where that how that flowed through the just sharing it and being with an audience. We both realized that we we do very similar things. We be goal. That can be changed things because audience said that didn't work and i didn't like that. It's just something josh. And that comes from the interaction that comes from it being in the world so now taking that to the books and the decision to pull those titles. That's a decision made by those who are taking responsibility for it when i saw it. My first response to that was. I didn't see as cancel culture. I saw it as As as them seeing where we are in the world where where where the world was when those books came on and where we are in the world now and the responsibility to all the children especially children who are the least hud. And so i felt okay. I i'm okay with that sorry So i'm going to play devil's advocate here. Just a little bit on the subject so when you did your book you made changes based upon where you were at the time you raise audience based on that reaction. You make the changes. But it's your book to make changes to so dr seuss is deceased. And it wasn't so wasn't dr. Seuss making changes to the book. Based upon reactions it was and it wasn't making changes to the book. It was literally saying nobody can ever read this book again unless they already have a copy of this so it's kind of a little different situation. It's it's this takes me to a Huckleberry finn so a few years back. They went to change huckleberry finn the text of huckleberry finn because it uses the n. Word quite often which was a common word when it was written down. It's relevant to the story and so some schools and stuff being pulled it completely from the shelves so kids couldn't read huckleberry finn and a group basically said well. Let's just rewrite huckleberry finn and take out anything that might be offensive. But then it's a different story and so i guess that's other people making a decision about a book that's not theirs so it's kind of a comparison. 'cause i'm changing stuff iro. Yeah it's me making the change but this other people saying this is i'm dead and now people generations from now are changing what i wrote and i and i think that it's still. It's still a step in the right direction. Meaning it's it. It can allow a discussion to be had. It's not to say that those books vanish picked on they. They they're they exist. And maybe it's.

I mean what kind of rational discussion d you have after you've been called racist because the more you defend yourself while than the more racist you must be. It's godwin's law on the internet when you're having a conversation and instead pulling out the racism card well somebody accuses you being a nazi sympathizer your hitler.

I'm sorry that equation not excusing any racism in any way shape or form but unfortunately when you take a current lens and you put actions of the past under that proverbial microscope.

I didn't know the good doctor. I don't believe there was a racist bone in his body or a sexist bone in his body. Everything he wrote seem very innocents.

"dr. seuss" Discussed on Anything But Idle
"I notice a lot of people struggle with this and that's the recent. I like that are cool because there is a lot of people who don sorry to to google. Whatever is them. They fear the monkey for for having more storage wants to understand where their stores has gone. And this article we showed you assist money way to understand what you're using of storage. And how can you better move forward. Yes and so just a couple of other google stories Google is now bringing google recorder as a web app soon and supposedly that web will bring a pixel user so google recorder is i think still currently only available on google pixel phones and the newest versions of those and And so google over quarter is an audio recording. Also transcribes as you are speaking so it's a real time transcription service right there on the phone itself so it's not going up to the cloud in order to do its work and the And so if it's coming to to a web app that's even better. That's amazing and the idea of audio. Backups is also great because all of that audio was being stored natively on the device locally on the device and so if we can get that to go up to the cloud in some way shape or form. I think that's going to be positive again. You know this always increases a security risk. But i think google knows how to keep your data safe so i'm pretty comfortable with them being able to back that up via that end and so since i'm on all google pixel devices. I like the idea of having the capability of Audio transcribing You know just as i'm talking things out or those kinds of things just being able to capture my own thoughts in audio and seeing it also represented in text and and then Last but not least ended. Google side of things Google's adding a new badge for unread comments in google docs so in essence right. Now when you are looking at your comments within a google docs. You're not really capable of knowing how many comments are in there. Now they're going to be adding a badge to be able to tell you how many are unread comments. So if you have a voluminous number of comments in a document like i'm working on the draft of a book and so there is a a wide number of comments in the sidebar and it's just nice to know how many are unread so i can go through those and figure them out and take them off one by one thing that we are working on a book and dad. When when i saw that i jumped into happiness.

"And we're your hosts for anything but idol I think It is episode forty six.

Seuss's birthday think tomorrow. I thought we would have a little conversation around dr seuss and his work and it's really quite interesting. Because dr seuss himself was a quite a bit of an activist he had a. He had a lot of political Thoughts and he wanted to share those thoughts. And i just thought was. He's he's a very interesting character. generally Do you have any thoughts about dr seuss that you wanted to share and and i'll let you figure out your audience situation and i'll kind of start with my thoughts. Which are that. He just generally had all of these various thoughts about how he was going to produce content. And i thought it was really quite interesting of the ways in which he Kind of espoused these thoughts and so he actually worked through a a wide variety of different types of I don't wanna call them hacks because they're these little tricks and techniques Around things but his for me the most important thing that he really espoused was this idea of a working within restraint and he liked to to think about this from the perspective. Of how do you. How do you restrain how do you constrain your world..
Keith Morrison reads Dr. Seuss How The Grinch Stole Christmas
"How the grinch stole christmas by dr seuss. Every who down in whoville light. Christmas a lot but the grinch live just north of veal did not the grinch hated christmas whole christmas season. Please don't ask why no one quite knows. The reason it could be as head wasn't screwed on just right it could be. Perhaps his shoes are too tight. But i think that the most likely reason of all may have been that. His heart was two sizes too small. Whatever the reason is hard or shoes. He stood there on christmas eve. Hating the who's staring down from his cave with a sour grinchey frown. The warm lighted windows below on the town for he knew every who down in whoville beneath was busy now hanging mistletoe wreath and they're hanging stockings. E snarled with a sneer. Tomorrow is christmas it practically here. Then he growled with his grinch figures nervously drumming. I must find some way to stop christmas from a main for tomorrow. He knew all the who girls and boys would wake brighton early. They'd rush for their toys and then whole the noise show the noise. Doi's noise noise. That's one thing. He hated the noise. Noise noise noise. Then the who's young and old would sit down to a feast. And they feast on they feast and they feast. Feast feast feast. They would feast on who pudding and rare who rose beast which was something that grinch couldn't stand in the least and then they do something he liked. Leashed all every who down in whoville. The tall and this mall would stand close together with christmas bells ringing. They'd stand hand in hand and who's would start singing. They'd sing sing sing. sing sing. Sang and the more the grinch thought of the who christmas saying the more the grinch thought. I must stop this whole thing. Why for fifty three years. I've put up with it now. I'm must stop christmas from coming. But how then he got an idea. An awful idea the grinch gonna wonderful off idea. I know just what to do. The grinch laughed in his throat and he made a quick santa claus hat and a coat and he chuckled and clucked. What a great grinchey trick with this code in this hat. I'll look just like saint. Nick all i need a reindeer. The grinch looked around but since reindeer are scarce there were none to be found. Did that stop the old grinch. No the grinch simply said if. I can't find a reindeer make quan instead. So he called his dog max then. He took some red thread and he tied bighorn on the top of his head. Then he loaded some bags and symbols empty sacks on a ramshackle sleigh and he hitched up old. Max then the grinch said got up and the slaves started down toward the homes. Where the who's they snooze in their town all their windows were dark quiet. Snow filled the air. And the who's were all dreaming sweet dreams without care when it came to the little house on the square. This is stop number one. The old grinchey clause est any climbed to the roof. Empty bags his fist then. He slid down the chimney around tight pinch but if santa could do it then socal the grinch he got stuck only once for a moment or two then. He stuck his head out of the fireplace flu where the little who stockings all hung in a row. These stockings grin are the first things to go. Then he slithered and slunk with a smile most unpleasant around the whole route and he took every president. Pop guns bicycles roller-skates drums checkerboards tricycles popcorn plums. And he stuffed them in day than the grinch buried nibley stuff dole the bags one by one then. He slumped to the ice box. He took the who feast. He took a who pudding. He took the roast beast. He cleaned out the icebox. Quick flash way the grinch even took the last can of who hash
College Basketballs Uncertain Return to the Court
"Myron medcalf has been covering college basketball for espn for nearly a decade. So my excitement. I should admit comes from a place of utter ignorance because after eight months of this pandemic after a cancellation of march madness. I have literally no idea myron what to expect from college basketball. At all this season in terms of the virus in terms of what's happening on the floor. All i really know right now. Is that both duke. And arizona announced yesterday that they are postponing their opening games. Because of covid and tennessee's rick. Barnes got diagnosed with corona virus. So let's just begin with tip off tomorrow. What's this all going to look like. Why i think that's the million dollar question college basketball a lot like college football. Most of the games are scheduled to be played obviously cove. It was a challenge for college football. I think for college basketball. That'd be magnified by about ten because you have more than three hundred team that are going to try to kick this season off. So i think everybody's just crossing their fingers and hoping for the best and not knowing what the head is on the theme of the three hundred teams. All kind of spinning. This roulette wheel is a lot to process. What are the protocols. Like the health protocols teams employers going to try to abide by this season. I think that's another important question and it's difficult to answer in that. There are so many different protocols by state by county depending on what's conference iran. I mean you're talking to thirty two different conferences. I'll give you an example. The american athletic conference. They're going to test three days per week during the season can't do a consecutive days. That's what ended up like guidelines. Recommend however at temple abide by the city of philadelphia's protocols which say they have to test seven days before competition every single day so you have even within conferences different rules and regulations. I've talked to athletic directors and california who are telling me that they still have to submit plans to their local authorities to get approval to compete this season. Forget host the team. Forget any of the other details just to be able to get back on the floor so you got see a lot of chaos unfold in the coming months so you are very clearly a healthcare reporter on top of being a college basketball reporter so myron explained to me what is happening in these. Pseudo bubbles where regular season games are gonna take place. One of them is an eleven day. Event starts tomorrow called bubble ville. Which has real dr seuss fives from what i can tell. What exactly is bubble ville. Well we're gonna find out but it's basically a bunch of teams all in one side of the megan sun in connecticut. Where the idea is you have everybody. At one location. There will be testing measures. Extreme testing measures with the goal being the kind of emulate. What you saw with the nba bobble on a on a somewhat smaller scale. They don't have the two hundred million dollars that the nba spent. Two resources are different. But i think their attempt is to mimic that. And when you're there there will be security in these hotels making sure that people are following protocols and then there will be specific places that you can and can't go. The challenge is going to be. Can you do that for dozens and dozens of teams and make sure that everybody's following the rules we saw the nba and the resources they put into that. It's a different different level. I think with college basketball in an attempt to pull this off for the next couple of weeks there are certainly some challenges attached to that. And there's already issues at bubble ville right. I mean the news baylor and some other schools have already pulled out of this tournament. Florida kobe issues. They pull out Baylor scott drew head coach. Their test positive announces that yesterday they pull out and then arizona state which was scheduled to play. Baylor in bubble veal. Says you know what we're not comfortable so you already have teams that have been moving things around an idea that i think we'll see throughout the season. How can you play college basketball with three hundred plus teams unless there is some sort of pseudo bubble environment
