"I knew a lot of tennis pros all over the uk and so they gave me the job. And i spent a year and a half traveling up and down the length and breadth the country signing all of the best tennis coaches to wilson and You know not kickstarted. the business. And as i got more and more into to the wilson kind of ethos and understood a little bit more about business side of things. And i think i pioneered but you know maybe it was a wilson idea. Don't remember now but they pioneered the idea of tennis. Steelers getting training camps come into training camps and so when they introduced new rackets in the market you know they used to invite dealers to david lloyd center to actually hear about you know what why these rackets were supposedly so good and actually get on court and play with him. And i i started out. Doing the sessions with the deal is on the court you know because you you know. Some of them could play some couldn't play and You know and from that. I got quite interested in the product side of things and eventually after a few years. Wilson gave me an opportunity to become the product manager of tennis. That kind of really kick-start in my my tennis career. And what is. The product manager involve coming. Open new products and working with designers. Yes yes exactly that. Yes because i you know new tiny so well and i could really understood what it took to make a good tennis racket. If you play a little bit you know you can hit a racket for three or four ten bowls and you'll know it's a good racket Field it's hard to explain but it has a feel and and so you know. I got the opportunity to do that in so you know. One of one of the great rackets. That wilson had at that time was i remember was is was the the original staff record and eighty five scoring very heavy. Three hundred and fifty gram racquet Very sick clunky frame. But but had been used in the past by many of the top players in america and you know i had an idea to modernize it and So i got the opportunity to go to asia and see how rackets who made and understood the mechanics in the process of how that that worked in. I had an idea to modernize the pro staff racket by slamming the frame down by offering different weights by just increasing the head size lightly to ninety five inches and coming up with a you know a graphic very simple graphic design that kind of Was a modern take on the original pro staff which had read in orange lines going all the way round the frame. I'm i came up with what we came the pro staff classic that time you know and actually that racket over a number of years became the best record in the world. Was that the stephan edberg to ask us that racket. You very funny story with steph night bug sir anew steph bite well tony pick his coach. Don't pick a wilson consulting those are but anyway we've talked to stefan on. Of course he didn't want to change from the eighty five scoring track but we his racket to look like the new one but he was playing with the original old pro style and we had a contract with him. But you know in those days. I can tell you steffan ibook publians thirty thousand dollars or something from wilson. It was like nothing compared to what is today and wilson was quite stingy. Saying hey look we make good products which we did and you know if you want to use it. And then you're getting the benefit of the product that's tool of the trade and let's go to win you lots of money and we're not paola. Money in the contract anyway so stephan edberg actually if you look up smell videos of him but there was a time when he actually played with with a very small w on his racket the actually put it down in the bottom half of his racket and reduce the size of the wilson w jolie other players out on this stencil by fifty percents and he just kept saying mike. I told you smoke contracts mole. W i love. And that's what. We had to make up all kinds of interesting stories for the retailers to steph was playing with a small w and we every pledged to play with natural gas at that time so we used to say well. He middle's the bull so well the increase having an impact on on the racket and so removed the w down for him and all this kind of stuff but know that is really and we involved and sign and like stefan edberg. You sign steffi graf. Yeah yeah so so so so actually today. So i hired a guy wilson. Whose today is the president of wills. Racket sports actually so so You know he used to work for me. I in germany You know in. And i made him you know he he. I went down. The product routes my promoted him. I took responsibility ultimately for the tennis tour of the international tennis to looking after all of the plaza building up the player base wilson. I hired him to go travel because he was a very good tennis player to go travel. And you know all the tournaments. And i think we the first player that we signed note was cry. Check as when he was like sixteen. We signed richard krajicek in. 'cause you know he became you know. He went went on to wimbledon You know then we signed people like you know. The woodies doubles guys magnets. Norman practically had seventy plays. I don't even remember the whole now. But ultimately we decided after a few years of success with the pro staff class they can. Suddenly we had all of these players being very successful using the pro staff plastic we decided to create a women's version of it and we called it the pro pro-style classic light. So it was. I was a lightweight racket and it was in lilac and pink and some colors like that and we needed a woman player to To endorse it in. So we started the whole process of of working steffi graf. At that time she was done player and she'd always played with a dunlop. Max two hundred g tennis racket. And if you've ever played with that racquet it's like It's a super flexible racket was injection. Moulded it was quite ingenious for its time but it was a very soft racket in. Actually you know whereas most tennis like the pro staff. Classic is very stiff racquet That regulatory soft. And so i remember that we went through about. I'm gonna say thirty different interrelations of this pro staff classic light racket until we found one that she could actually play with and so we were constantly traveling to a house. Who you know in our house. She had she had like every coats in the house except grass yet in all the different services and she was testing eventually. She landed on one that she likes..

"And so I figured that you know one one something has got to happen here to change this whole the this whole momentum whether it was. You know a shot or a an a fan or call, or you know something you know. We're going to have to switch some of the momentum, and and you know to be honest with you I wish I could remember. Go back and figure out what that was. Because I don't remember, but you know all the sudden. You know my my whole mindset, my whole attitude, my whole game changed. because it had to because we're to being down that far I mean there. was you know in doing what I was doing was not going to win that match. So once my you know my game changed. I became a more aggressive. I became more confident in my shots. I became. I became what I always was. It's it seems Kinda crazy to say that, but but I I finally found that feeling of what it was like to be me. And you know that you know if that wants that caught on then then I felt that just staying there and keep grinding, and you know I I made a living off of being a grinder, and and you know got into it and got stuck into it, and I got more confidence you'll patrick might have felt a little bit of the pressure coming his way and. You know I ended up coming out on top six four in the fifth, but yeah I mean it was. It was a story beginning to to Alaska would run, which led to the most in two weeks of your career like bread Jimmy had sent you and your mom and your sister home. You guys were not there for that, so you're at home. Are you watching this? What were you thinking? We'll POPs was down two sets of love three Oh. Yeah I've DEF definitely was watching He's in his home the week before an interesting story, if you. Got a second, please he. He played the Hamlet Cup, which was a tournament that happened a couple of weeks before the US Open. You know one of the prelims. And he won a couple. I can't remember what round. It was, but he. I think he drew Stefan Edberg and like the quarters something like the quarters I think that's right and he's. He's upset and maybe even a set a break, and then all of a sudden. He stops doing what he's been doing the whole match. And I'm like I'm looking like what the hill you know what's going on? You know you, you know. He's been dominating an effort at the top. You know two or three player at the time. And he ended up losing in three sets. And then we're driving back in in the limo back to the city. New York. And I'm like what happened. You know like Mad Feber. Shimmy. And he's just sitting there. Almost with this kind of calm look on his face now like Kinda just telling me like it's okay. It's all good you know, and and now that I look back. What he was doing was testing his game. You know he was upset. A break on top through player you know in in I think what he wanted to do. You know make sure the game was okay. You know and then he didn't WanNa waste all the energy by making another round or making semi finals. You know he was saving himself the USO. Year and a half before that had been focused on the US, open! And so figured he had had his. You know game was an order. You know if you can get out the set and a break on the top three player. You know he's definitely ready to play the US Open. So that always sticks out in my mind that you know two weeks before you know he was already thinking about you. Know I found opponent. See it's. It's a great story because Jim you never. That's the thing like I mean like any other great athlete. You're going to go out there and get hammered sometimes, but you were never not prepared I mean never ever not prepared and I talked to Kurt Warner earlier today on my radio program and I. I think both you guys can really relate to this Jimmy. especially. You Kurt was talking about how he's loved. He loved the film work. He loved the mental game. He loved to think his way through a game and I know you love to think your way through around a match and figure it out. If I were to ask you, Jimmy, what was your strongest tool then? Was it your game? Was it your mind or was it your heart? Yeah, right right? Yeah, I I. I feel that you're. The intangibles are are one thing that you know especially in tennis. Don't get enough credit. You know if if you look at the game. you go out there. Everybody plays great tennis. They hit the ball well, and and but it's it's Those who have you know the the strong mind, the heart, the guts, and you know and it. You know to to understand what it's like. When you get in a situation, you know how to handle it. About it don't waste your energy. Don't waste your time. You know everything is done for a purpose and You know you ask me you know what was good. Certainly you know to to win tennis matches and especially. Grand Slam tournaments which are two weeks so.

The New Amsterdam Theater
"Edward hated theater like really hated it but he loved anthea when it was her turn to choose the location of their next date. She said they were going to see a Latin so he went. He had to admit the new Amsterdam campus beautiful all read gold and classical murals. She'd gotten them front row mezzanine tickets so it was a great view but he couldn't help feel a little unsteady as they walked down the steps to their seats. He was reading the playbill. When anthea decided it would be better to buy her merch rich? Now skip the line at intermission. He wanted to point out that it would be marked up but he bit his tongue. This was her night. Don't let her out to the aisle as he settled back into a seat he felt a tap on his shoulder. A woman was standing there in in a slinky green dress her vintage headdress. Made your look like some strange bird. He stood up to get out of her way leaning against against the balcony railing but she only smiled at him asking if he was excited for the show he tried to muster up a half-hearted yes she laughed whimsically she always dragged her husband. Are these things. She told him he much preferred the moving pictures. Wow Edberg thought this girl is really committed to this whole flapper thing. He confessed theaters made him a bit nervous. He didn't like the dark and he didn't like heights. She told him he didn't need to be afraid she'd protect him. She stepped forward and he stepped back on instinct. He could feel his body begin to fall the railing behind him too low for his tall frame. He flailed trying to catch himself she. She grabbed his shirt at the last moment pulling him in close he opened his mouth to say something but then anthea was there at the top of the stairs is he rushed to her beginning to make excuses but she only looked at him quizzically. He turned back towards the railing. Where where their seats were? The flapper girl was gone.

A Blanket Full of Bacon
"This is Shirley. I'm joined by my co host. Jim Wilkin JT English. I wish we should just give you everything off the it was just a repository Eh. One day we will put that on. Today's episode we are an ax to look at a blanket. Full of Bacon in acts chapter. Ten hope you enjoyed the discussion hey. Jt why did did you immediately come in here and make fun of my Mug. There's this problem like we have these huge coffee mugs in here right now and I can't fit my coffee Mug in my ears. Looks like it in your mind ends Jenas but it's big like that's like a gallon or so over there we had a microphone in there. The microphone with your your Coffee Mug. It's a to hold it with both hands. Yes driving a small bucket. uh-huh drive and your yeah. This is interesting Well we are back. And today we're talking about acts chapter ten and a blanket full of Bacon And so just figuring out what's happening in acts chapter ten and well you know what. Let me tell you something. You're you're never going to indict me for not having an interesting episode title. Just I'm like I'm free from that. Ah Chan what would you call this episode pigs in a blanket. That happened off air. We were very proud of that. We brought it back on here. You know we we're GONNA leave people without pigs in a blanket so then I had a weird moment after that hit me when we actually my daughter I want to give her credit. She's the one who was like Mama teaching pigs in a blanket. And then I took everything in me to resist googling to see if there was actual a tie between the tidal title pigs in a blanket and this chapter really like I thought maybe the International House of pancakes red x ten and then named it back. Wow Oh oh wait. Wait wait so so you thought that it was possible that the idea because of the head coach for a viable. Wow you're so. Yeah Bible rival literary you're like the beautiful mind person maybe where you're just like though subject to further discussion. Well today. We're talking about about pigs in a blanket or a blanket full of Bacon. We're an act SHEPPERTON. Let's just do a quick recap so far jen. How did we tax ten? I mean wh where have we been at before we got here. Well Kyle. It's been a long haul. No actually it's been really good we've gone through So the first half of is focusing mainly on the the emergence of the Ministry of Peter Within the narrative and So the first half of the book wraps up at the around the end of chapter twelve. And so. When you're in chapter ten you would know? Then we're really getting disordered. The the main point of what's happening in Peter's Ministry and interestingly right before you get to chapter ten ten you see the conversion of Saul so the Texas has spent a lot of time talking about Sol And we actually did on an earlier podcast and so you can kind of get get the sense that oh well I guess. Now we're gonNA talk about Saul Slash Paul and Saul Slash. Paul is commonly thought of as The one who takes the Gospel to the gentlemen tiles and said it's a little bit of a surprising. Turn when we flash back to Peter and find that actually. This is a story about Peter Taking the Gospel to the Gentile Anti. And he's GonNa he definitely gets kicked their right. It's not like he's not looking for the opportunity right. He wasn't. He wasn't out vision-casting for the Gospel. Going forward right Paul right with the Lord Kinda seized him into it right. Hold them into it. And that's the story Enact Shepperton focusing on Peter Cornelius and so I and also what's brought us to this point is like this expansion. This sort of ratcheting out of the Vision for who the Gospel is going to go to. And so I it comes to the Jew and then you start seeing you know like. Oh there's the Ethiopian Eunuch you know it's like each each vignette that's in here of WHO Receives The Gospel. Is this this this picture of the Gospel going as Jesus said in acts one eight from Jerusalem to Judea to Samaria and so this week is the ends of the earth and so and this is a fascinating story right right Oh man it's fantastic. I mean it's just it's really interesting just from like a history of redemption perspective. It's really interesting from a Kosh the spirit moving and Peter Peter and Cornelius perspective. It's interesting from what our visions and dreams perspective. It's interesting from a just like the pictures that are are interesting. They agers so it's just a fascinating story so we're not going to be able to read the whole story of petering to Cornelius. Because it's it's long it would take we're trusting when we cover these chapters. You're maybe reading along with us or you're familiar with the story. So the broad kind of contour here just to give us like a big arc of acts chapter. Tim Is that Pete. There's this guy named Cornelius Milius And Cornelius is a centurion of what was known as the Italian cohort and it says that he was a devout man who feared God with all his household he gave generously to the people and he prayed continually to God and that he is going to have a vision and that vision is going to be the Lord speaking to him And that around the same time Peter seems to be having having a vision and that is a vision that involves pigs in blankets. Hallelujah yes and so oh I think one of the questions that we immediately ask ourselves here is. What's the big deal between gentiles and Jews like? Why is this even talking point of significance at all like y casual reader of the Bible? And you get to this story. Why did Peter have to be kicked so to speak into bringing the good news to Cornelius? He is why wasn't that. Just a factor like hey I mean Jesus has come. This is good news. Why not bring it to everybody? Yeah I mean I think one of the main themes that we're going to see probably throughout this. This episode is the significance of promise that God made to Abraham in Genesis chapter. Twelve verse three Specifically that that That Abraham or Abram Room at the time was this man who was going to be elected for the purpose of his family than blessing the nations events he subsequently in Genesis. Fifteen and. Seventeen this this Promise promise of the good news. Of God's favor and blessing being given to Abraham and going through Abraham there is a sign given to this covenant specifically the sign of circumcision which is now the Jewish people. It's the Israelites and but over. The course of time I think they began to to forget that the purpose of their election of the Gospel the good news being given to them was actually not just for them but elections for the purpose of others of blessing the nations corporately and they begin developing a spiritual superiority based based upon this sign of circumcision. And it could not see how God would bless or or make somebody clean. who was in their mind unclean unless they they had been circumcised so really when you come to the New Testament one of the primary questions that is being asked like their their theological conversation is around this question? Do you have to be Jewish right in order to be a Christian. We're GONNA see this later in acts chapter fifteen at the Jerusalem Council. But that's really what's happening. Luke is doing. He's giving us a theological narrative errative to show us that the primary question that that that that God is trying to show his church is that by intentions. The whole time has been to bless everybody to bus the gentiles. Not just Jews but gentiles through the Jews yeah Because obviously the Messiah comes through Abraham's family right well and one of the reasons that we wouldn't read through this on the on the podcast Is because it repeats itself. So God's right and and and one of the things that we have to ask then is like the R- the repetition is like we get all the details over. I mean the the number of times that Simon the tanner who lives by the sea is mentioned. In these in these retailing's you're like stop and and it's repeated three times. The story is repeated three times. And they're actually a number of threes in the story Or multiples of three. That are are trying to tell us something They're we're going to be three men who accompany that. Go to get Peter. They're going to be six men that come with Peter Back to Cornelius House because they are bearing witness. It's the idea of on on the on the testimony. The money of two or three is the truth is something established. So that's all going on. The story is given to US three times. It itself is bearing witness and what we have to ask is why so much over and over again the same thing and it's because I think we we're looking back on something in and most of us are gentiles. We don't have a Jewish heritage and and we have to recall That this level of repetition and this much care taken around communicating this particular message about clean versus unclean about is is Christianity Eh Something that is placed within Judaism and grows out from it like. Do you have to observe Jewish custom that to the original audience. This is mind mind-blowing at the point that it is being given to them like it is like that cannot possibly be and yet it's in here three times because his. Jt said it it's the fulfillment is a fulfillment fulfillment passage for the promise. To Abraham that through him. All the families of the Earth would be blessed and I think it is easy for us to to to be dismissive of some of the tensions between the Jewish people. And somebody like Cornelius. Like it's not like the Israelite people were had no the reason to have a little bit of certainly hesitancy but if not if not just hesitancy but outright resistance to the idea idea of gentiles being heirs of the promises why because they had a history of being enslaved exiled and oppress by these groups of people right. That's right so like Cornelius when we kind of turn to the question of who is Cornelius with Cornelius. Is He's a leader. He's a soldier of an oppressing army occupying hang army exactly. So it's like the idea of Peter Going to Cornelius. And saying there's good news for you. Cornelius would be to bring the good news of Christ the Lord and this better kingdom to an oppressive enemy. That's exactly right and so it can feel a little bit like if you're reading this you're like well why the hesitation well not only were. There are strict tradit religious traditions that separated from cleanliness perspective Jews from gentiles engine towels from the inner presence of the Lord or the holiest places around the presence of Galway But there were also very big cultural and political realities that that kept division alive among Jews and gentiles so cornelius is a centurion It was What was known as the Italian cohort but he has described arrived as a devout man? Feared God with all his household gave generously to the people and pray continually to God. Now I wanted to pause here And just ask a little bit so coriolis just describe somebody who fears God and yet. He hasn't heard the good news of the Gospel. What's going on here right? Is this like the is this the sometimes. I read this passage. I feel like this is where people would go when they're like well you know there's somebody out there who maybe has never heard about the name of Jesus but it is like but does fear the Lord right so who. What does this mean? Why is this significant? I think this is a classic example of why we can't take the book of access prescriptive given everything that it's saying because what we're seeing as you're right at the hinge point right you're right at that place in between The way that we see faith demonstrated rated and credited his righteousness in the Old Testament and the way that we're going to see Belief in credit credited as faith and salvation in the New Testament I meant and Cornelius is right at the center of it. He's going to help us. Answer the question of how to salvation come by grace through faith alone has always been the answer but we would speak of like those is who are listed in Hebrews eleven as having looked forward to the promise of salvation and then New Testament believers is having looked back. He's right at Ground Zero and and so I think that what we see here. Well so just strictly in terms of what the text wants to communicate. He is a Jewish pro slight right so he is he. He is probably on the verge of conversion to Judaism so he's he's probably attending synagogue but he's not circumcised He someone who in the past would have been like if you think. Think about Rahab. She converts to Judaism or or or ruth is brought into the community. He's not yet in the community but it's interesting that he is already demonstrating. He has works to accompany his faith. So so I think what we're seeing here is a simple obedience to a forward-looking looking faith that is only forward looking in so far as no one has come to preach the Gospel to him yet. There there is a completeness to Gospel but he hasn't heard it yes. I actually don't think this is my hot. Take that when Peter Shares the Gospel with him. I'm not sure that that's the moment of salvation for him because we already see the Lord appearing to him and saying prayers MOMS have ascended as a memorial before God But I do think what we're seeing is. The connection of the idea of what is what has been salvation. An and now what is celebration. Yeah and we do see throughout acts. I don't know that we we've hit another one of these yet. But we do see these moments where there's essentially a group of Characters Jersey have a part of the story and that one of the apostles you gotta bring it to bring the other part of the story right so you see this with typically The receiving of the Holy Spirit or the baptism of the Holy Spirit. where it's like? You have a part of the story people like. Yeah I've been baptized by John. The baptist. Well there's there's more you know that like the the Christ price came that he died that he rose again and that he has sent the spirit right and so there are these kinds of points. I think it's important. You said that about Cornelius that there are so many scenes and acts where we need to fight. Maybe the the temptation to go okay. This is how salvation works As supposed to go okay. This is a very specific. Overlap moment in the history of redemption and this is one kind of cut away scene right of that very unique back once in a history redemption. Kind of moment. Yeah right that's right. Also just find a lot of comfort in the fact. That God was wasn't his providential ential over all of it in other words. This doesn't work if God isn't clearly. Directing writers clearly directing directing the men who were with them like God is moving moving all of these tectonic continental plates and there's there's just movement in redemptive history happening we get. We get this great confidence or assurance in this narrative narrative God ultimately is the one doing. Yes Yep that's good guy gets his people he doesn't have to be more anxious about God's mission than he is and Edberg. Yeah you're right Let's go. I needed to hear that today.

"And a lot of us think that's not necessarily good thing. What do we do to effectively gonna digital diet? So they did this. Survey asking people about this kind of thing. And what they found was you know, your New Year's resolution was to cut the curb your smartphone screen. You may have already fallen off the wagon. A lot of people are using tools that will tell you just how much time how many hours you're spending on the phone and where you're doing the apple introduced something last year called screen time and Google Android has has something called digital wellbeing. So people are starting to use those things I think it was forty some odd percent of people use them in their survey. And yet. Only twelve percent of of the survey respondents felt they were uncomfortable with the amount of time. They spend on their phones. And then relatively few expected to change their behavior in twenty nine. That's interesting. So as you point out, I mean, digital detox is tough. Why is that? Well, because you know, think of all the reasons why you have that phone with you in the first place, obviously, some of us even use them to make phone calls. So we're constantly. You know, we're constantly texting were browsing where where Instagram Facebook, all the social media. We do we play games. I mean, we just rely on these things. I mean, it's remarkable to think back, you know, let's say a decade ago when we had phones them, but we we were nowhere near using the way we use them today. And we use them for everything, you know, I have a battle in my house with my kids trying to eat a crowbar to to get phones away from them. And we adults are are not much better. I'm speaking with Edberg personal technology columnist at USA. Today's written a piece about digital detox and all this screen time. I use that apple tool and saw the daily average was five plus hours did detox in. And the way it worked for me was getting rid of the Facebook and Twitter apps on my phone that trot me down to on around two hours a day, which I felt was reasonable given us for work and things like that. But boy, I was alarmed when I first saw it. I thought well how much time with my wasting? Yeah. I mean half the battle is just just that looking at the cold statistics and seeing really spent five Edwards on the phone yesterday or today, or whatever it is. And you know, people you talk to will say, you'll actually you'll better be less depressed. If you spend less time on the phone. You know, it's a mixed bag. We do rely on these things. Good reason work included. Maybe your kid doing homework is lots of good reasons to be on the phone. But there's no question, we we're we're overdoing it. What about for the kids? It's harder for them. I mean, the more attached than I think than we are as adults. Yes. No question about that. Again. It's my house. And I know I'm nine alone. One thing that was interesting in the survey. Now, they didn't look specifically at young children. But the youngest group they did look at which is the eighteen to twenty nine year old actually has the highest incidence of saying that they wanted to spend less time on their devices. So, you know, they're aware of and and you know, was still not a huge percents. Thirty four percent of them still. They said they wanted to spend less time on the devices. It's a little bit of a expect. Because his age group is also probably using the device. More in the first place.

"News talk eleven thirty WINS Edmark going late afternoon show since Paul speaking the bears to win two stories that make Chicago look bad. Edberg has finally been indicted for those of you know, anything about Chicago politics Edberg has been an alderman the city of Chicago for decades. But the position of alderman understates is influence. He's been one of the most powerful people in Chicago for that entire period of time. He's been probably the most powerful member of the Chicago common council and very little gets done in Chicago without his approval. He has always been presumed to be corrupt. But they've never been able to nail about anything. Now, they have the allegation deals with and they've got wiretaps, Adam. Apparently, there was a fast food chain a company that owns a bunch of fast food restaurants, including a Burger King. Why did you some repairs in Berks district and Burke instructed his staff to shake down the company, which is from out of state at some Texas. Hey, you wanna get approval for these repairs? You want to get the building permits and so on higher my private law firm. This is the way things have been done in much of Illinois, and certainly for much of Chicago really forever. The reason some of these aldermen are worth hundreds of thousands of dollars millions and millions of dollars is they're often lawyers in private practice. In addition to be members of the city council. Michael Madigan, the speaker of Illinois is a big tax assessment lawyer. So their government service goes hand in hand with the way, they make their real money lawyers stuff like that you want to get something done higher by law firm for the other work that you need and guess what? We'll be able to Greece through your approvals. The thing that makes the story extraordinary as people at presume that Edberg has been doing this forever. But he has been so meticulous. So careful that he would never say it aloud as John points out in his column. Today's Chicago Tribune all of this occurred on the phone on the phone on the phone on the phone in the end, Burke, just got sloppy. And after all these years he made now finally be going to prison. And now this by the way. Everybody in Chicago everybody in a position of power is a democrat that city has been corrupt for decades. And this crap of having to pay the alderman bribe the alderman to get anything done you want to do anything here. Hire this law firm higher. This bridge collector, you know, hire this person to do your landscaping you got to do all these things if you want to get anything done we take care of this. It's been going on forever. You know, who's to blame for it? The people of Chicago keep electing these people. They refused to open their minds to open the open up the notion of voting for Republicans voting for anyone else, and they have tolerated in condone this forever. I'm not saying it doesn't go out. It was concept. But generally when it does go on and we find out about it people go to prison. This is the same thing that junior McGee was doing remember he said he was the gatekeeper in is this to want to get anything done. You gotta go through me. Well, he got away with that for about two years apparently Berkman doing this for forty and then this you may have heard these stories they have been down peddled by soft soft pedaled d'oeuvres. What do I be downplayed downplayed by the Chicago media for some time? But there have been a lot of incidents in downtown Chicago over the last couple of years of Wilding where young people get off the subway and come into the high profile area where the tourists are the shopping districts in the loop of the magnificent, vile inch causing utter mayhem one of them occurred over the weekend. A bunch of people got off one of the Chicago subway trains, young kids, mostly African American and went to water tower place, the big high end call it a ball. I guess it is a ball Paul said he was just there. When were you there? Sunday and Monday this occurred Friday and Saturday it occurred Friday night and then sad. You heard anything about it? When you're there faucet evidence buzzer about it. They got off there, and they just started beating the hell out of people, and then they run away, and they go back to the subway or that is I it very very hard to catch them. Water tower as they say, it's sort of like a high rise. It's right next to the John Hancock center, and it's got high end stores in there, and it's high end mall. Lots of tourists high profile traffic, and they've had a few things like this in the past. It reminds restaurants in their Paul points out. It reminds me of the trouble that occurred a few years ago at Mayfair water tower, which is always packed with kids is now announcing they are going to have a teenage curfew of four o'clock on weekend. Afternoons the problem, of course, was saying daddy is what good is that gonna do. If a bunch of people get off the subway and just decide to beat everybody up. What are they going to say we're not gonna right in here and beat everybody up because it's after curfew, and we're not allowed to be in here. It's a significant problem. Social media's blamed for a lot of it that these things are organized through Snapchat. Another is that skull good out and meet at a certain place and beat the hell out of people.

Now, it's the mystery case out of Washington DC, it's pretty obviously Robert Muller and Russia gate, so we'll do senior legal analyst time because that case the one that's been kind of ping-pong between the district court on the bottom layer and the circuit court of appeals in the middle in Washington DC that case has been going back and forth back and forth. Everything seal made it was so sensitive that when it was in the court of appeal a couple of weeks ago, the security guards sealed off a whole floor and a wing of the building. I mean, this is really really kinda cloak and dagger stuff, and now that cases in the US supreme court. And so that means we've got gotta do senior legal analyst time also if you with us in Chicago on W CPT with our friends there. I'm seeing it in the news, and I got your emails, and I nor. Normangoldman dot com. And it's in my Twitter feed 'em all over Edberg. Yes. Edberg today was charged with account of extortion. Bought bought before you start popping the champagne corks if you have any leftover champagne, it's not about Russia gate. It's not about Trump as he was. Apparently he's trying to trying to shake down Burger King. I guess the best I could tell you didn't have a lot of time to spend on it. But the sun times in Chicago, right? And the Tribune mean, they're all over it. Right as you can imagine. Anyway, if you're not as Chicago in and I'm kind of an honorary one at this point. I think but he's he's he's he's what we would call a city council member. Right. They call them alderman. And he's a very powerful guy. He's a lawyer. He's been there a long long time, and you may recall couple months ago, he was in the news B U R K E, Ed Burke, he was in the news because the FBI raided his office is right. As part of the Michael Cohen. I guess what we discovered at the time. What we were able to figure out the time was it had something to do with Edberg working for Benedict Donald on that Trump hotel. That's in Chicago and some. Squirrelly taxdeal that appears to be what it's about. But Edberg's offices were raided by the FBI, and you may recall, they were so careful about it that the newspaper like newspaper over all the windows and look in and see what they were doing, and they took all of Burke stuff, and so now at Burke has been charged, but from what I can tell it doesn't appear to be part of what molar did I think these kind of garden variety extortion. And I don't understand what it is with politicians Chicago politicians any politicians. They all seem to think they're going to get away with this stuff every one of them, and maybe a bunch do. And that's why we never hear about it. And maybe the system is just so corrupt. You can't them all, but I'm just I'm always amazed. It's like the never ending parade of politicians. I think they're gonna get away with it. And maybe they do I'm waiting for politicians the end of a Christie. Okay. I got away with a lot you never caught me. Here's the list, anyway, I ju just for the fun of it. But anyway, Ed. Burke has been charged. But I don't think it's his legal trouble seemed to be just beginning and not ending. So anyway, for our friends in Chicago, I hear you on Ed Burke. I don't think it's the story that we're waiting for. So we'll senior league land was time though is about the supreme court and the called chief Justice John Roberts did a big favor for this foreign country. Yes, he did. Who's he working for the so-called chief Justice the United States? He did under the the radar a big favor for this foreign this mysterious foreign country, which has a wholly-owned corporation, and we know all about corporations, right? Corporations are people, my friend. So when you get to the US supreme court with all these Republicans own it's a corporation corporations are people, my friends royalty. We can't mess with these guys. One eight eight eight three two one six zero zero one one eight eight eight three two one six thousand in one. The Dow down six hundred. Did I'm sorry. To laugh, I'm sorry to laugh, I shouldn't laugh. This is not a laughing matter. But the reason I'm laughing the Dow was down six hundred sixty is because of course, the political ramifications. I have the best word. I had the best words the political implications. The reason I'm laughing is because it's blowing up in Benedict Donald's face the Dow down six sixty I'm not celebrating that a lot of people getting hurt. However, however. He. Men out on a limb. I'm trying to say this diplomatically, he went out on a limb. He said, oh, look at the stock mortgage, look fantastic. Everything's doing on the economy is doing so great. Well, when when when gravity applies what goes up comes back down. What do you do then after markets closed on Wednesday? Apple stock dropped seven percent, wiping out in estimating fifty billion dollars in value the plunge after an announcement from Tim cook that the company fell about nine billion dollars short of its revenue goals largely due to sluggish sales of the iphone and ipad in China, one of his most important markets. Cook says some of that is because apple failed to anticipate the magnitude of China's economic downturn. But he told investors that's been made worse by rising trade tensions with the United States. How investors investors remain nervous ahead of the opening bell? As apple and other tech. Stocks have taken a beating overnight and international market Norman. And we think ABC news for that. That and yes, stocks went down six hundred and sixty points. And when I saw the storm no economist, but when I saw the story this morning, I said, this is not going to be one of those days where the stock market goes down, and then and then boomerangs back up and kind of ends even goes, I r- the reason for that was the reason the stock market plunged today apple apple one of the biggest companies around they announced way lower than expected sales in China, which is a giant market for them. And the reason for it is because the Chinese economy is lumping it's going down. It's sliding down. And so apple CEO today. Tim cook is announcing say, look, we're going to do a lot worse in China in our sales department there than we thought we were going to that's bad enough. So their stock went down almost ten percent today. I'm not stopping I know he doesn't like here. He doesn't like the tag is anyway, but anyway, Benedict Donald has staked his so-called presidency on the on the stock market and on the economy. And Apple's CEO Tim cook said today, not only our sales in China going down. But the Chinese economy is softening and that, of course, sent lots of chills through lots of spines in the in the Wall Street and global economy community, and they're like, oh, we have Tim cook his assessment of the Chinese economy is going down. Oh, that's not good. And then he says one of the reasons why is because Benedict Donald's out there messing around with these guys with his trade war. So so there's that. So I when I look I'm no economist, but you don't need to be a brain surgeon to figure some of this stuff out when Tim cook. The apple CEO is out there making these kinds of statements. That's going to spook the markets. They are not going to rebound at least not in the day. The so so today was down six sixty. And so there you go one eight eight eight three two one six zero zero one one eight eight. Eight eight three two one six thousand one. If apple it said our sales are slowing because you know, well sales are slowing. I don't think that would have had quite the impact. But those extra two elements the whole Chinese economy is going down and a lot of its or a big chunk of it, a noticeable party leases because of Benedict Donald trade wars. That's a real problem. And then of course, we've got one more story that we will get to today that we have planned which is the parent the parent kidnapping of an of an innocent. So they say innocent American and his name is Paul Whalen. And he Putin nabbed him Putin's people nabbed him. The the allegation on the American side is Putin wants somebody to trade for Maria Boutin Tina, remember her the penetrated the NRA in the Republican party, right because she loves guns. Right. And so they just invited or all the way look at how open our system is. By the way. I mean, that's really quite a lesson for us a civics lesson. Right. A foreigner rush. Can just show up throw little money around Sal love your organization, and you can get access to the top people in the United States. Pretty amazing try that in Russia or China one eight eight eight three two one six thousand one the theory, though, is is that this guy Ed wheelin as has been just basically kidnapped. So that Putin will have somebody to negotiate or handover and Mike. First question was don't they already know who are Speiser? I mean, we know they're spies. Are they know who are spies are for the most part? Maybe not you know, every last one of them. That's the name of the game. Right. Have a spy that they don't know about. That's that's the whole goal. But we do know who ally, they're spies Arlene. Who a lot of our spies are so one would think they would just arrest a couple of our actual spies. Unless of course, they know something that we don't. And here's the problem. Here's the problem while I I certainly don't trust Ladimir Putin. I don't believe a word. He says the problem is I don't trust Benedict. Donald and the United States government is giving me lots of reason to think of it. Lies to me on a regular. Basis. So when the US government says, oh, we don't anything about this guy wheel. He wasn't a spy. Okay. When you can't trust anybody. You got a problem? Right. And this is what happens. This is the moral of the story credibility credibility. When one loses one's credibility. One's word means nothing. You know, who I'm talking about here. Right. Believe me. I he's just a great example. Believe me when one loses one's credibility. How does how do you get it back? How does one get it back? So many Americans were so disillusioned by the US government with all the lies about Vietnam. And then we had Watergate, and we had this whole, you know, era of cynicism and people saying I can't trust my own government. Right. And has that changed by the way has that changed do people trust their government, and I don't know either. So there you have it. This is the state in which we find ourselves one eight eight eight three two one six thousand and one that. Was the survey course of today's show with a little bit of substance in there. Let's get to the government shutdown Nancy Pelosi and you next at one eight eight eight three two.
