This is me your answers cart knowledge, checking to see if the chilly temperatures are gone for a while. Find my forecast any time on the WSB radio as it has been helping me a lot in these Aceh. Everybody else just gets more and more worked up getting closer to the election, and it's all the strife and everything is I just happened to be in. I just have a great view of this wonderful sunset for the last month or so, and I'll be here until Thanksgiving or so, and I don't tell you this this Ah, my mother in law's house off the back, There's a there's a bay in the sunset every day, is it? I'm there every every every evening because it's like a It's like a natural painting. And I don't know what's exactly going to look like. Sometimes it looks like the great Masters. You know, Sometimes it looks like Impressionism, but it's fantastic. And it's so soothing and side o. The bills look terrible. The next sunset in that wonderful How the Braves are up. 321 ended up not going the world Siri's that makes me lonely and doesn't make it any way. You look at that sunset. It's so beautiful. It's so soothing. Ah, the refs in that Georgia Alabama, But look at that sunset. It's sewn on. The same thing is true with the election or anything coming up. I just I have those sunsets and It's just wonderful. It's just wonderful. Just sit there. And then every once in a while, you know, some You know, mosquito or something will ruin the damn thing. But other than that, then I get angry, too relaxed to the sunset. But other than that, it's Ah, It really is. Ah, more nature in my life. That's what I need. That's what I'm finding is. I need more nature, less screen time, less television networks. Less people who are just every you know what I realized. I've thought about this myself. When I get angry. I can really dial it if I really go into it, you know, after you're done being angry, realized what stupid looking You look into it, and I realize it's about being a control freak. I'm mad that you're not responding the way I want you to respond, and then you get away from and you go. Well, Who the hell am I to be able to tell someone else, how they should respond to anything and you know, I still get angry and I still mess up, But I could always go back to that. And then I'm now applying that to everything. Why is it important to me that you should think the same thing about the political scene as I do? It's really kind of a control freak thing. Hey, look, if you think Marxism is the best way to go in America I happen to disagree. If you ask me why I'll beam or than happy to tell you why. But ah It's just a control freak thing that I'm going to get angry that you don't understand why I'm right, eh? Go look at a sunset that will really relax you And then once you realize that the anger that you feel towards other people I don't know maybe it's just me. It's my own self, you know, analysis, but I imagine it'll apply to a lot of people. If you really look at it comes down to Being a control freak. Why isn't why doesn't everyone understand that capitalism is what built is? Guess what? Everybody doesn't understand that, and that's the way of the world. But if somebody asks you for your opinion, and they really want to hear it. Don't let him know why you think what you do, but, you know, don't get angry because everybody doesn't agree with you. And it's the same on the left and the right. Why doesn't everybody understand? We need to burn down these businesses? Well, I don't understand that. I don't understand that. And by the way, that's against the law. So we pay taxes for people to be cuts. And But then again, that's what I say. Well, you know, let the You know, I pay taxes for police enforcement. So I'm gonna expect that people who burn down buildings are going to go to jail and we'll see how that goes. But for the most part, I'm just comfortable and happy. And I think if people would just think about how much of their anger derives from wanting to control the reactions of others for that to be the same as your reaction It's just, you know, It's just the good work that you do on yourself. And it doesn't make you perfect. It doesn't mean you don't do it again. You know, I do it all the time with my wife. Then I'm done. Why am I You know, so you know, it's like once there's a disagreement, right? I'm not about. I'm not talking about family issues. Just like talking about the presidential campaign or something. And once is a disagreement. Why continue? Okay? We disagree. People just have to be OK with that. Why do I think That my wife should think the same thing that I do. It's really an absurd notion, and it's all about control. And Jared. I'm telling you because you're very angry person. Oh, yeah, You're always yelling at Louie's. Yamamoto's so angry so that that's That's my thing. I'm I'm having a good time watching these sunsets every night, and it makes everything kind of go away a little bit. The one that you said our pretext was gorgeous. I mean that that that picture that you sent us. I could do it every Corona ad. It's like a whole didn't nothing every night. I mean, it's it's the whole. It's like this painting that gets painted every single night here and Ah, don't appear. I miss being home, too, and we'll be back home. For months and months once once we get the Thanksgiving, but it's a nice little kind of mellow out thing. And I'm glad to be here during the election, because you know one. Here's the thing, though. Whoever loses is going to say that it was stolen and their followers are going to be angry. But this is my opinion. If Trump loses.

"The n word almost entirely and so i asked you know other kids on the bus how this why this was and you know they told me the story and in there you know in the kids version it was very mythic and kind of legendary and it just went that a long long time ago there was a white girl who was attacked by black men and all the white people in for side banded together and ran out all the black people so that that's really the first version of the story that i heard not would have been an about nineteen 77 and what did you make of that you know i was horrified by it um and sort of frightened by it and at the same to my parents are fairly progressive and were activists they both from birmingham alabama so and they were the rare um liberal and progressive white southerners at the time and you know so i was a little bit horrified by but i was also really fascinated by the story because it suggested this vanished world um and so i always had the feeling that the place itself was kind of haunted and i i thought about these vanish black people disc whole community of black people and had always wondered you know as a child i wonder where do they go you know how did this happen what what what did they leave behind which of these places that i know in the county might have once belonged to them so you know is really a a kind of long fascination but it always seemed mythic and really unknowable to me when i was a kid then you kind of witness in the aftermath of the story in january of 1980.
