Los Angeles County outdoor dining returns with new COVID-19 rules
"Okay, so you'll have to correct me if I'm wrong when I described this, But there was a skit I want to say in the nineties when Alec Baldwin used to guest host all the time. And the skit Woz. He was operating a dirty cake shop. And people would go in and they would try to buy all these various kinds of dirty cakes, and he would suggest a cake with a woman sitting on a toilet. And then the customer would be disgusted and they would leave and then the next one would come in and the sales pitch would be exactly the same. He would lead him in that direction. And every customer that came into the cake shop. Got that same pitch. Do you remember that's get Try to remember that one. I gotta look that one up. Yeah, that's worth checking out on YouTube. That character in that skit kind of reminds me of the L A times is wrong, Lynn because every question that he asked, is, Do you feel vindicated for setting all the restaurants down? He asked it to Barbara. For rare, He asked it to the mayor. In fact, let's listen. Let's listen to him. Ask that question to Barbara Ferrer. Our next question comes from the line of Ron Lynn. Ron, your line is open. Please go ahead. Hi doctors and supervisor Thanks so much for talking with us today really appreciate it. We have questions for you today. Dr Pereira and supervisor on whether you're vindicated in the public health strategy Project room key and when teachers will get vaccines, first doctor further, and Supervisor L. A county received criticism and lawsuits from some restaurant owners on the outdoor dining ban. County data shows that virus transmission rates started dropping around the same time as the outdoor dining ban and the safe ride home order were issued, which occurred a week ahead of the ST Stay at home order. Does the current good news vindicate your efforts to ban outdoor dining and imposing early, safer at home order? Okay. Now, let's get a completely different question. For l. A mayor Eric Garcetti. I'm deeply feel vindicated that you backed the public Health department here because you know, there's a lot of public criticism. You know about this, but In the end, the public health Department was right. That really bad circles coming on. I just want to know what you thought about that. Thank you. You should really work in a dirty cake shop. Joining us to talk about this and much, much more. Is Fox 11th Film Illusion. Bill Welcome. Hey, John. Thanks for having me, man. That's quite a Quite a variety of questions there. Yeah. You know what? Um, I heard the same thing I was listening in on the DPH pressure the other day. When I heard that question asked in my my job kind of hit the floor. I understand. Ron later explained that he was talking about That our number that health officials like to talk about you know how many people get infected by one single person, he says. That number got lower, but I mean, look at any chart after the outdoor dining band went into effect, our numbers shot up like a missile straight up right afterwards. And if you were we remember at the time supervisors Catherine Parker and Janice Hahn They voted against it. They were concerned that hey, if we shut down outdoor dining, where essentially going to be forcing people indoors, going into the fall going into the colder weather? We're worried people are going to congregate indoors more. And you know, people can debate the outdoor dining ban all they want, but the fact is In the months after it. We went into our worst surge ever, and we're still not out of it. Um, so I don't understand why it would be asked of health officials that they feel vindicated for that. Um, it was just bizarre from my perspective. Well in L. A doesn't operate in a vacuum. We have other cities and other states that air doing similar things and one of the reasons that the city of Chicago decided to reopen their bars and restaurants. I believe for not just outdoor, but indoor dining as well. Was because they realize that by shutting all of them down what they did was, they pushed everyone into crowded little apartments or Grandma's kitchen for Christmas or whatever, and that caused their numbers to explode. The same thing happened in Los Angeles. Yeah. And now they're taking another page out of the exact same playbook. They today they're letting outdoor dining reopen with the caveat that TVs have to be turned off s. Oh, So now the idea is, obviously they don't want people gathering at sports bars and restaurants to watch the Super Bowl next weekend, right? So what they haven't learned. What are people going to do now? Okay, so they don't want him watching it outside. They want to take the outdoor option away. What are people gonna do? Instead? They're gonna watch it indoors. They're going to go to private parties at home. They're gonna watch it. It have people over to watch the game. I would think health officials would want people outside in the fresh air at lower capacity. Rather than crammed inside of private homes. Um, but, hey, I'm not a health expert, but it just seems it just seems logical. So, yeah, they're reopening the outdoor dining today, but TV is has to be gone or turned off.

All his taylor's were unionized which is not the cheapest way to do it and a grandfather on the other side who is essentially a dreamer who didn't get his citizenship ship for the first thirty years of his life here. Even though he was an american one year old until he fought in world war two and i think those things imprinted on me how important it was to stand up for what what you believe in to fight for the underdog to look at who's not at the table and to make sure that they're what voices aren't being heard so i think all of that was the brew that led you to <hes> apartheid out africa yeah so then you return and then you start teaching at u._s._c. now at that point. Did you think i'll be a professor. I don't think i was gonna do teaching but i was interested in human rights. I thought maybe teaching do on the side but i wanted to do either international development work or human rights work i had been on off living in africa to do my research so i lived in eritrea which had just broken off from ethiopia a few years before and i was looking at the birth of a new country and in that country how ethnishity worked because there's eight major ethnic group and they had all fought against the theo paeans even though some of them are closer to the ethiopians and i'm the case of rwanda right it is a colonial definition calling join them to see in a hutu elevating one of their status that creates the true ethnic is that that's the central lesson is that most people think ethnicity ethnicity is ages old like the crowds have always hated the serbs so we can't stop them from killing each other yeah when in reality they used to intermarry those groups. Were not as discreet as we think they ah yeah same thing. Rwanda and eritrea didn't even exist as a country in history until the italians late to the colonial game said hey. We're supposed to get some colonies. Most most of africa already been gobbled up so they got eritrea somalia and libya all money losers. They didn't understand that colonies for most countries where money gainers yeah yeah and so they spent lavishly but just that short period of a few decades gave air trillions who were totally religiously and racially and ethnically diverse an identity that oh we're something to the point where they fought the longest war in africa against the biggest army in africa ethiopia so like when people think that identity is ages ages old. I think that it's something that can change in a generation yeah. Particularly if resources are limited in one groups getting better access to those resources. It's going to breathe a lot of contempt. That's exactly right so you such an overachiever fucking overachiever. You got all these great colleges your rhode road scholar. You get your masters. Did you get your h._d. There you're working. I was working on but still but i'm eighty you fell in love. These are a lot of time consuming things things. Did you have a great time management strategy. I just got it on that before. We get to city council so the nice thing about about scholarship. Even though i roads folks would be upset with me me for saying this is it's for folks who have really driven hard and some of them will go and do the next step in their academic career most rhode scholars more than any other profession become academics a mix but for me. It was just a moment to breathe. If i got a degree that would be great. I felt like had contributed public some chapters from my dissertation in books but it wasn't my goal. My goal was to kind of just have a moment to stop this run on sentence of life. Yeah have some punctuation yeah. Most people do that as a gap year but you did it as a roads so very lucky to have the scholarship which pays for your time there to meet people to form ideas to think about the future to be an activists to see the world and to kind of form who you are. It's something that i miss a lot these days because i'm back on the run on sentence were i think you have to really carve time out to grow as a person. You can't wait for it to appear now. You have to stake a flag in the ground right yeah. I i mean what i've given as mayor anybody's ever considering public service. I always say it's kind of like acting only do it. If you can't not yellow yeah yeah right well my saying it's different. I would not advise you to take on which is it had better. Be something you'd be happier failing at then succeeded at something you don't like it but i don't think a mayor should fail the politics usually at some point. You're gonna lose to electoral way you know. My dad told me in one thousand nine hundred take two thousand. He goes up for third term right. He made through j got reelected. All that kind of stuff you went for third term and got rejected almost two to one oh boy. I decided to run for city council few months before i wasn't running on his name but i didn't wanna lose on having the same last name. What was i even thinking yeah and i sat down with the friend who i was doing a fellowship with the rockefeller foundation of kind of people of color looking at changing power in america and she said hey my my boss is the city council member. She's just been elected the state legislature you should run. I'm sure she said at the twenty people was the only one rose in one right but i couldn't get the idea d. out of my head and i thought about international relations is los angeles if you walk on the streets of l. a. yes yes eleanor roosevelt. Once said human rights. I'm paraphrasing in distant lands me nothing if they don't mean something in your own backyard and so if i wanted to human rights in interested in these issues of refugees and ethnic the conflict and stuff like l. A. is the place oh absolutely i it was it was kind of a clear path and i knew i wouldn't win. I was kind of like the young punk in the race. I was twenty nine years old. There's some really established names people but to my earlier point i was like oh i'm gonna lose because of my dad right just having the same last name and it was amazing raising when i went door to door for some people said i love your dad but why should i vote for you and others are like i forget hate your dad but tell me about you and so people were very fair about that right and when i got elected my father said you've gotta know who you are going in because it's who you're going to be the day you go out and hopefully it on your own terms as you saw with me. It might not be so you're you're saying it. You've got to be willing to fail to yeah..

It's hard once you get past a certain point because then like sometimes then I'll just keeps newsy and then it's two hours to our NAP is probably not a snot advisable. You'll really groggy afterwards and then wide awake when you hit the pillow at night generally yeah someone the downfalls with Napa know napping as a powerful part of staying functional is an alcoholic to a lot. The people have to make that Game Day decision regularly on a Saturday right you go out. Maybe you have a bloody Mary or whatever you have you get a little buzz on around noon and then you're confronted with a big conundrum. Try to keep this buzz going for the next fourteen hours hours or go home and grab like a two hour nap wake up a little confused and then start drinking again share that you find that that's a conundrum drinkers find themselves in Britain often. I guess if they're planning on drinking for that long yeah I was thinking about it all the time on the vacation. I was like okay great wines out at noon. Oh Yeah yes. That's GONNA be an interesting maintenance of it throughout the whole evening. You don't want to get to drunken tired. You WanNa keep that sweet spot of that buzz. I'm just saying you gotta be real precise on the throttle these situations you're right because you're looking at twelve hours of a buzz noon to midnight. Actually if I think of observed for you you kind of shut it off about two hours before before you go to bed down vacation I would shut it off around. Well time was very weird there so I don't know who know hours before bed yeah. It was always three hours later than we thought it was yeah. It was so confusing there. The Sun was just about to set at ten PM. We're like wait a minute. What time is it? Is it seven yeah it was bizarre that in phones were paying off of Illinois Towers. People's fucking clocks were wrong no one no one knew the right time. Who's kind of liberating it was vacation? You couldn't count on what time your phone said like. I don't know does it matter. Does that even matter in really. I know you don't really get that very often in real life okay what year did L. A. become a minority majority. The nineteen ninety U S Census and two thousand thousand U._S. census found that non Hispanic wiser becoming a minority in Los Angeles. I know I feel that way. I drive around L.. A. And I don't see a single white person where are they. They've been run out of town yeah yeah. That's how I feel too. I miss the white people we're going to get them back. We had some kind of policy that incentivizes white still live here definitely okay that Keith Jarrett right concert. Oh you missed <hes> and it was in nineteen seventy five to date. It's still the best selling piano album of all time and it almost never happened. As you said Jarrett I had arranged for a Boston door for two ninety imperial concert grand piano. GotTa have it yes and unfortunately the Opera House staff wheeled out the wrong piano a much smaller Boston door for baby baby grand and to make it worse as a piano used for opera rehearsals and it was in bad condition outta tune so he was not going to do it and then he got convinced to and yeah and then it became the biggest album is kind of become a symbol of how much creativity can flow out of a bad situation less than ideal in that a lot of people to promote creativity tried to disrupt people's work environment the can lead to great productivity. I think the other example they gave him the podcast I listen to is that the two had shut down and there's all these people that road the tube to work in for three weeks they cut in or whatever and that when it reopened they found that thirty percent of the people did not return to the two because they discovered there was no reason for them to even be taking the two that they were walking in about the same or whatever it was but it took something to disrupt their pattern. Make them discover more truthful truth. Yeah it's kind of fascinated for for life I would say but do you think that we should we should experiment and do a an episode of the show where you look straight into the bathroom and I have my chair. Turn Nice Stare at the dog. How can we talk to the person? Listen sure probably rude. Try to see if it leads to incredible episode. I don't think rudeness really leads to good things but maybe if like we were <hes> wearing Nixon masks and they were wearing like the Jason Mask share that could be a disruptor great for audio to yeah well. We'd have to cut out the mouse really wide. We can do some crazy busy. Let's do it lie down for an episode. That would be very fun getting into some napping. We maybe should ask a returning guests because you don't want everyone deserves fair. It's not fair they should have a real shot at the normal interview view but maybe with a returning guest we could ask them to lie supine with us on the floor and talk. Let's do it sounds fun. It might bring that element of like when you're laying in bed with your friend at night when you'd have asleep over kind of conversations you have yes yeah staring at the ceiling steering endlessly at all the different things you're discovering about the scene. There's a crack there that that time do hair plan Masan out to pillow talk. You could do that in the during the interview for sure. Oh I love that point. Do Circle is ideal. <hes> you said Apartheid Africa obviously meant South Africa. I just don't want anyone to say that and act like I didn't catch it. Okay the Exact Act Eleanor Roosevelt quote that he paraphrased is where after all the universal human rights begin and small places close to home so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world yet they are the world of the individual person the neighborhood he lives in the school or college. He attends the factory farm or office where he works. Such are the places where every man woman and child seeks equal justice equal opportunity equal dignity without discrimination unless these rights have meaning they have little meaning anywhere without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home. We shall look in vain for progress in the larger world. <hes> it's nice. It's very nice agree with it or now. In total well truth. My mind went to run. You started listing the occupations started thinking about was this argument for the individual or the collective and then I think it's for the collective collective anyways they just started trying to categorize it and one or the other yeah yeah. I think it saying instead of looking at issues faraway start with the things your circle yeah little by little you get you could've much easily your said <hes> you know it all goes back to the Mike Jackson Song <hes> starting with the man in the media shoes in that what she's saying start with the management starting with you. I think she's saying your community okay and also I don't think he probably wants to be referencing Michael Jackson right now as a politician now holly smart move void. I guess the whole topic I would say so but I'm a rebel so I'll sing man in the mirror and then also I have nothing to lose and I really also condone his behavior af also good song. It is a good song. GonNa make a please take a look at yourself and make <hes> <music> change still didn't get there whenever a little closer so we talk about the organizational psychologist who was on Sam Harris Guy. You said that he said power doesn't corrupt it. Exposes your true nature pitcher but he told this really interesting story. I went back and listened. He tells a story about power to sort of display what he is talking about and he said the way people use power depends on their pre existing listing values and there are two lawyers who got into public office. This is interesting one was threatened to be disbarred on the first case he ever tried and the judge said I doubt you have the ethical qualifications to practice law and that was Richard Nixon Dicky Nicky and the second was so ethical that he ended up refusing client because he said I know you're guilty and I can't defend someone who I know is guilty and that was a real Abraham Lincoln Lincoln yes so that was his point that power reveals Nia me too I agree and then also I would say there can be a period of leveling leveling like it can be. I think in my very limited experience of at least getting more power in theory or attention or cultural capital. There's a bizarre period where you simply have zero through experience with dealing with it. So you're kind of learning as you go I think over time it would level off into your character but I do think that initial onset of it. It can be very confusing.

But in my spare time, I talked tech and you're listening to Rico decode from the vox media podcast network today in the red share is Eric Garcetti the mayor of Los Angeles, which I love. I actually love Los Angeles is drive around today and thinking that he was first elected to the post in two thousand thirteen. It was reelected. Last year rented talk about the state of local politics. That tech scene in LA and much more Eric. Welcome to Rico decode mayor, right? Please that. Okay. Eric daughter, that's just the title for a little bit. I'm your daddy. Excellent title. So we're talking about a range of things including national politics, which you've been discussed running for president, and let's start first in Los Angeles. Talk a little bit about your background that people don't know you go through it just a very quick natives of Los Angeles. Actually, fourth generation Angelino my newest family member to come here is my grandfather over one hundred years ago, but I represent the city's absolute sprawling and beautiful diversity and half Mexican half Jewish with an Italian last name. I grew up in the San Fernando Valley which was where the Brady bunch home was in the middle of nowhere in the middle of everywhere and grew up, you know, pretty anonymously. I think people think I grew up in politics because my dad later after I was in college van for district attorney, but he was a prosecutor just align prosecutor growing up. My mom worked in charitable foundations and grew up in a very kind of middle class San Fernando Valley life as valley girl came out and thought, I always wanted to do something to change the world. But I figured. That might be my parents raised me with that ethic. My dad was doing that. My mom was doing that. They gave me a lot of free rein growing up. So I traveled Ethiopian high school to help out with medical relief work. I in college, lived in the jungles of Burma with the democratic resistance that was there. I got a degree in human rights. They encouraged me and my sister to be exchange students. They had met from opposite sides of the track here in LA at PanAm airlines. And so I think they had a very global. Yeah, the great Pan Am airlines fell in love, got married six weeks after the first date now. So the world was very important place for them where they kind of fell in love, and they always wanted us to see the world on the streets of our city and vice versa to see kind of l. a. on the streets of the world. So I always felt comfortable almost being anywhere, though. I always knew I'd come back home and Todd is a professor when I came back to PLO Missy and world affairs international human rights work, then ran for city council. Why somebody suggested it to me, my predecessor on the city council's chief of staff and she'd probably suggested it to a dozen people. I couldn't get out of my head. It was definitely not something I'd ever thought of doing. I didn't know who my city council member was growing up, but I realized why am I going far away places to work on human rights when those issues are right here, and this is the most global city in the world. And and I always give this advice to young people don't run off to DC. Don't go abroad until you set your roots down someplace because the work you do in America today is versus anything will do around the world and you can't kind of grow into that. If you don't start someplace that was the first time you were in politics. Yeah. I mean, I've worked on campaigns. I had helped my dad and one of his reelections I had worked for Kathleen Brown's campaign for governor way back when he took a fifteen point lead and lost. My fifteen points could swing..
