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.

So if you want if you want to back down Donald Trump's claim that a vote for Joe Biden is a vote for a Trojan horse for socialism. Back it down a little bit if you want to. Can can we just all agree that a vote for Joe Biden is a Trojan Horse for the Green New deal? Which would cost over $4 trillion and basically, it would it would double our economy you it would be caught more costly than we would cost us more than we create every single year. It does not make some math doesn't work. No, but agree New deal sounds. What sounds It sounds palatable, writes a green new deal thereby Planet Yes, we're going to care about the plan, and here is the other part of it right? We could all do more to care about the planet, including AOC and all these green new dealers. You absolutely could. This gives you a license to not have to because you have a green new deals, but I could do whatever I want. The government is going to take care of the government of the United States is not going to save this planet. If you really think that this planet needs to be saved. It's not going to be the United States government and taxing people to try to create something that the market cannot create. That is not going to do it, especially when you have the rest of the world 75% of the rest of the pollution. If you want to call it 4% of the world's population for 25% of the energy usage, so still that 75% We're not going to win the math. You can't win the math.

"Kick it off with restaurants. You know the place where someone takes you to break up with you when they could have just sent you a text. I don't understand how we have these for the meal but I paid fully for the heartbreak. Sheila health officials say that when restaurants reopened in the age of Corona people will need to sit a few feet apart from each other for safety. But the question is. How do we do that? Well one of the country's top restaurants has come up with imaginative way to avoid the awkwardness of having a bunch of empty seats. Some places that we go social distant can feel a little awkward like maybe lots of empty spaces in a restaurant for example so north. Virginia restaurant is filling in the missing people with mannequins in little Washington. Which is a renowned fancy place. I have learned three Michelin Stars will soon open for half capacity at the end of the month but the empty tables will feature these frozen friends in vintage nineteen forty style outfits yes if eating and a half empty restaurant makes you uncomfortable. Now you have the option of eating in the final scene of a horror movie much more relaxing also. How bad would you feel if you eating alone and then you look over and you see that even the guy made of plastic was able to get a date and look? I get what this restaurant was trying to do but I think they went too far when they also use mannequins to occupy old bathroom stalls. Excuse me what's taking so long in there. Come on. I gotta get back to my table. I think Sheila's GonNa Propose I mean. Why else would she bring me here? Why would someone bringing here if they you know who's probably GonNa love this restaurants Mark Zuckerberg? Wow everyone at. This place is so lifelike bartender of shots for my fellow. Humans speaking of the duck facebook the world's largest social network and elderly tick talk is bringing millions of users together in a really unexpected way. More than a million people are spending time during quarantine pretending to be ants so this facebook group is called group where we all pretend to be ants in a colony. Look at one of the post here. Ants crawling on ice cream. One person says Munch with me and then take some to the queen. You can see the comments say flirt and lift to Queen. Okay this is. This is really interesting to take their minds. Off of the stress of corona millions of facebook users are pretending to be aunts. And you thought you were the only one in quarantine feeling a little antsy back to you. Sandra look man I get it I get it. Who wouldn't want to live the carefree life of an ant right? You spend all your time carrying Crumbs Five Thousand Times your body waits until the day some asshole kids steps because his boards sounds like a dream. Now I know a lot of people are just having fun. Please remember whenever. There's something really fun on facebook. There's a good chance it's created by the Russians. Let's all within the we. We bring good to Queen then. We not vote for him and finally. Here's another way.

"Course was so classy when he got it. He said it's an honor just to be contaminated in the movie. The person who cures Tom Hanks. We'll be played by Tom. Hanks all right. We got a great show a little bit of a show have five great guests. Willie Nelson Seth McFarland Max Brooks La. Mayor Eric Garcetti. Ads Senator Bernie Sanders. All of them is not one on one yesterday. So let's get right to okay. My first guest here from my house is The Democratic Mayor of Los Angeles and Boy Am. I glad we have one of those. Please welcome Mayor Eric Garcetti. They're clapping at home. I'm sure for you Mr Mayor. Thank you so much for being here with me today or remotely with me here today. I wanted to have you on the show for a long time. I wish it could have been under happier circumstances but I guess the good news for Los Angeles you were the one of one of the first to give a stay at home order and that seems to have worked I guess my first question is because we were first doing that. Might we be one of the first to end well. I've said the more quickly people do things the shorter this will last in the slower that they do things the longer it will last so it could be but we also were not as far into the infection as other parts of the country like on the east coast so remains to be seen. We're about fourteen to seventeen days kind of behind our calendar of where New York is. We implemented these things earlier. So I'm hoping that throughout California the first state to do this that we will be able to get back to work and back out of the cave as it. Were sooner. But we're GONNA wait for public health professionals to tell us we should expect it to be a couple of months and as our civic vice-principal on this What sort of grade would you give Angelinos for following the order. I would say it's a solid B. Right now We got an A. Actually in one of these groups that grades how much our cell phones move so If people are sneaking out there at least keeping their cell phones at home because it showed that we had been the county moving the least here in southern California and throughout the country. But you know we see slippage of that and I think that there's always folks that are looking to get to the beach. We had to close that down. Get out to the trails and I understand it. These are the iconic locations in places we love to be but this really is about that discipline of a couple of weeks and reminding people when you move you kill yourself and you could certainly kill somebody else so unless it's necessary unless you're critical worker. Stay at home. Well the last I read there was eight thousand cases in a state of forty million people. Now obviously that's going to go up because we're entering that phase now where those numbers are going to rise. How are we doing with hospitals masks ventilators equipment? Well you know. We are about eleven behind New York City in terms of fatalities per capita in La County. Maybe fourteen days behind number of cases. But they've had more test their We're doing okay. We're holding steady. And I hope that I stayed mortars gives us an extra week or two that other places wouldn't have every city has to be prepared for when the cases are gonna hit your capacity and just to put it in perspective we have You know about twenty two thousand beds total in all of our hospitals that are general emergency room hospitals of those were having only about thirteen or fourteen. Fifteen hundred of them available right now. Only a couple of hundred. Icu BEDS so these hospitals are already about ninety percent filled. Ninety five percents filled before the onslaught. Now they're building capacity. They're moving beds around their changing rooms. That didn't have ventilators. We've got about a little bit under a thousand ventilators unused right now. Prepared for when folks come. But we're GONNA hit that that That wall whether it's in two weeks or three weeks we're confident every city will go through that we're just trying to do our best to save as many lives as possible I do. We have enough masks. I know that there has been conflicting information even from the CDC about how effective they are Day of sometimes made us feel like they're not that effective I think it has got to be somewhat more effective than nothing and I've heard other people I think yourself say even if it's a BANDANNA which worries me in La because if I wear the redwood and then I'm out where the crooked the blood redder of really screwed I mean look the these things like this which are different than masks. I mean they are what we call mass. But they're not medical grade masks. We have about five million of these that close companies here in Los Angeles Have already started to make that. They think they can make about five million a week The metaphor is like that. You know football player might be smaller than the door. That's the virus and the door is the size of the pores in this. But if you have five or six football players trying to rush through the same time it actually can help. Droplets not spread and save our Grocery Clerks. Save folks that are doing are critical work. So I'm a big believer and I keep waiting for national guidance. Might here very soon. I just heard before coming in here. Maybe the president by the time this gets. Us shown we'll have said it as well and those countries like Czech Republic in Korea and other places Taiwan that have them shown a slower rate of growth. So it's important to remember that's different than the surgical and the medical grade mass that we need there aren't enough of those. Were still hold on. We've got some times a week or so of supplies. I've deputized the head of our port of Los Angeles. Which is the biggest port anywhere in the Americas to be Archie Logistics Officer? And so we're looking at supply chains and companies and chasing down every lead to order for hospital so hospitals don't have to compete with each other cities don't have to compete with each other states. Don't have to compete with the federal government. It's a mess out there But you know right now. We're holding on but it's week to week is honest answer. You mentioned the president I imagine it is a Hobson's choice as an elected official especially in California not his favorite state because as you know he would have won the popular vote. If not for all the illegal voters here but it's a tough choice for a guy like you because on the one hand you want to tell the truth on the other hand if you say anything critical. This president has shown that he will deny essential services and equipment to states. That aren't nice enough to him so I guess what I'm asking us. How are your praising skills when you need them for this president? Well first of all. I think you're doing a great job either. Television or non good but seriously you know I'll I'll say thanks to anybody. I'll work with the President before this happened. I was working with Ben. Carson his Secretary of Housing and Urban Development even though some of my democratic friends said don't when it comes to homelessness because he had a genuine heart about it he was willing to listen. And we've been working together. Same thing with this president when it came to the US naval ships mercy He brought it. I said thank you. I talked to folks in the White House just days before art of what I hope Helped bring it here but also will be shy about criticizing what we don't have at the national level. We don't have the preparation for this. We need to prepare for the second spike of this when it comes in the late fall or early winter we've got to use all the resources federal government better and I'm a big federalist I love that here in California. We have states rights. We can go our own way whether it's on immigration the arm and other things but federalism depends on the central government. Doing some of the most important things like defending our country with wars foreign policy international trade. And certainly a pandemic response would fit into that. I'd like to see much more sort of leadership much more national standards much earlier adoption. I'm glad he's now saying that. The whole country should do this of but I got on a phone call with about three hundred fellow mayors two weeks ago just after we had done this and I said do it now. I don't care if you don't have one single case it's coming. And the way the media reported this is kind of coastal allowed it to become a democratic or blue state thing you know just a week and a half ago. I was looking Wyoming. Had the same action rate is La. So did North Dakota. You know it was just per capita. People weren't looking at it. They were looking at absolute number. So this is coming to your town no matter what and we need national leadership on procurement on testing on standards and on advice. Well I think he did a good job on this so far. I wish you continued luck and all of us good luck and hopefully we won't have here in California. We are the land of the sequels. Hopefully we won't have to be doing this again. Thank you so much. Mr Mayor Strengthened. Look forward to coming on after yes. We'll see when person soon I hope. Thank you Sir Cindy Take Care Right. We are delighted to have the presidential candidate. That independent senator from Vermont Bernie Sanders is what this as. He has been many times on our show. Never under such circumstances a Bernie. You are a guy who has seen a lot of things. Where do you place this crisis in American history? Never in my lifetime. Bill What we're looking at now is absolutely unprecedented. You know we're looking at a pandemic the likes of which we have not seen one hundred years. We're looking at an economic collapsed. That may may end up being worse than the. Great Depression With thirty forty million people of becoming unemployed in the next number of months so it's unprecedented in our lifetimes. Thus for sure. And what would you do right now if you were the president I? This is exactly what I would do. The main point is that we have to prevent a breakdown in the entire system. That's how dangerous it is right now. It is much easier to maintain the system to fix it after it is broken. What does that mean from an economic point of view? It means that we tell every worker in America. You will continue to get your paycheck. We know you're not working. We know you're at home. You Know Your Business that you're working for is not functioning but guess what we're GonNa do what the UK is doing what Denmark is doing. What Norway's knowing what France is doing you will continue to receive one hundred percent of your paycheck number two. What we have got to do is guarantee that all people in America during the crisis. Get the healthcare. They need without out of pocket expense. It is pretty crazy to say to people as the last stimulus package did that. You can get your corona virus. Test government pays for that. But if you're sick and go to the hospital you have to pay for that out of your own pocket number three..

"Com or download the app today okay so now here's another one. This is a real touchy hot. Button topic rent control. Here's my argument nutshell. No one would think. I think that someone has a right to live in beverly hills. <hes> there's no right that you should have affordable rent in beverly hills. We all recognize oh. That's just as really crazy upscale thing. No no no. I don't assume i have a right to live. There affordably and i would argue los. Angeles is a beverly hills of the world. It is one of the top six cities he's in the world and it's gonna be expensive to live here and i feel like it's unrealistic in pretending that there aren't market forces that everyone has a right to live in tokyo. This is where i get a little more libertarian now granted. I was a twenty year old who moved to santa monica and i benefited greatly from having rent controlled apartment for ten years have probably allowed me to stay okay here so it's conflicting and now add on. Let's assume i was third generation in that apartment in so i i recognize people will go. The people that are now working in this city can't afford to live in this city and that's a great argument which i would apply. We'll get so expensive. They'll move elsewhere. They'll do those jobs there. We in l. a. We'll have to finally pay what it should. It costs to have your house cleaned or any other thing. If we want the people to be working here. We're gonna have to pay them enough that they can afford to live here so i feel like some of it could be ironed out downstream now. Tell me why i am wrong or tell me. If you agree at some of those points look you make good points. I get always practical about these things again. I mean i had my ideology and i have some ideology that guides me but also house look the reality. We don't have control in the sense that if you move out of your apartment i moved into it. I pay what you paid right. We can reset it with every so it goes up to market rate. When anybody leaves and the average apartment somebody leaves two and a half years unless there are cases but in that small percentage maybe you have that nice graham who's been there for forty years and she's still paying only only three percent up from what it was forty years ago but with rare exception like that essentially you have market rate. It just slows when somebody's in there how quickly you can raise the rents. Yeah it's called rent stabilization and i think we all pay a boatload of money when the ones that aren't under rent stabilization anything built after nineteen seventy-nine if if somebody can raise the rents fifty percent in a year what's the cost to us so you know pollution when somebody has to move further out because they can't afford traffic when they commuting in from the inland empire go to a job here the businesses who can't get employees who just signed say i can't do it two and a half hour commute and still raise a family so if the system works well enough that people can make money as being apartment owners and keep something that's more affordable. I think that's a good system but we're you're right. Also is at the end of the today. We need more apartments. That's missing. It's not just you can't regulate your way out of a crisis. You have to build more stock so that seven people aren't living in that apartment underneath you but maybe they can afford to have two apartments apartments and live a little bit more humanely so i've been a big proponent against nimby ism just not my backyard syndrome of saying look if you don't like the homelessness on the streets. You don't like the rent's being too high. There's actually solution that is market based as well of just let us build more. We have an inventory issue. Exactly above all things california in general general is a state is just very anti building is that it's been decided yeah i mean that's an example in the left well-intentioned environmental laws and i'm for the environmental part of environmental laws like if it's about pollution or this that are often used as somebody can take eighty nine dollars and challenge anything based on environmental. Sometimes you have the property owner the next door doing it because they want to keep the rents high that has nothing to do with the environment britain these liberal laws that just slowed down and people after then cook in two years of delay three years of delay on what it costs to build something that doubles their price and then. We wonder why it costs five hundred thousand dollars to build a single apartment here. Yes that stuff. I'd love to see sacramento especially now. Democrats have a supermajority reform that and say look we can be a place. That's a little bit more libertarian about that and still protect the environment but let's green light this stuff about social justice justice in the marketplace together now that then leads perfectly into homelessness yes so i've lived now in l._a. For twenty five years i guess so let me just also add my frustration. I happen to me in a hotel room. Whenever i'm in a hotel room i as a habit make myself watch fox news. I want to know what you know. I wanna john what that perspective is and i dedicate time to. I can get through all of it. It's the one i was like. I wanted to call and say please let me go to bait him as tucker carlson deuce on this high horse about our homeless problem and how it's a result of liberal policies he's like you don't see in the cities in the south and i'm like no one's moving there uh-huh or you're also talking about cities that have terrible winners. You know we have earthquakes. I don't think that has anything to do with this being a liberal. There's some issues. We have right the the weather's warm this if you're gonna be homeless. This is a nice place president talk about it himself a couple days ago yeah. He said san francisco los angeles. The streets are disgusting in in japan saying how clean the streets were right right and he might have to intervene problem started two years ago and my response was. I'm glad to tell him that two years ago when he was elected president. That's not what homelessness started right or is it mine but we can together do something if he's serious about talking about it. I didn't score political points. I invited him to come out here or or go to the white house and helping republican mayors from red states and places like arizona. I work with closely because they have a huge problem democratic areas why i wanted to call him and go like please let us know in mobile alabama. What the policy is that resulted in. No homeless woah act your policy. Tell me what it is. You know if the right scott a real handle on what he is it. What's the magic sauce people with homelessness. It is the most complicated issue but i've ever dealt with and probably ever will deal with because people always want to say well. What's the thing that causes homelessness. This is a drug addiction is it mental health issues is it p._t._s._d. In veterans is it. The foster care system kids. Emancipating without parents in a family is easiest sexual domestic violence against women. Is it people getting out of prison. He's lifestyles at low wages. Is it a choice and you know i say yes. It's all those literally the everybody's a different combination of those but it's kind of trauma together with high rents yeah inspire to people being and various environment to live outdoors ores los angeles so question good place to do that in other cities the homeless populations that are bigger in places like new york but they're indoors partially because they have a right to shelter law. The state pays as for those shelters but also because you'll die in the wintertime if you can't stay in a tent in freezing outside now when i was in college i had to do in ethnography on skid row so anecdotal. This is just me for two weeks a college student but i will say and i'm recovering addict. It was very it was in the ninety percent of people i interviewed that were clearly early just addicts yeah and it was so counterintuitive what i learned by a lot of the people is that they actually reside in a home until they get their disability check or whatever their check is and then they leave their mom's house or their brother's house they come down to skid row and spend that money doing drugs and when they run out of money they go back to a home and i was like well. This is the opposite uh of the pattern. I would've thought existed. I'm like wow. That's a tricky problem to solve your right. I mean self reported and we do a count of everybody who's homeless in in the city and county each year self report. It's thirty percent that have drug abuse or alcohol and or mental health. That's probably low because it's self reporting fifty. Maybe even sixty. There's a lot more people who don't fit that cliche than ever before who are economically caused homelessness living cars couch surfing maybe living in and out of shelters and working but for that first piece and those are the most difficult cases <hes> probably the most visible as well right absolutely the most traumatizing ones for us is to see some people who are literally dying on the streets sherm and until this country recognizes that there's a mental health crisis and usually the drug houston alcohol uses obviously sell treat me bashar self-medication. We're not going to get out of this. Crisis in cities have police and sanitation and so i can arrest and clean up neither of those solve homelessness but i get rid of the tents. It's okay that'll be in the next neighborhood and under the law. There's no longer penalties. There's no carrot and stick for drug use. We can say you're either going to prison or treatment program right. Well intentioned criminal justice reforms. Let people out of savings. Were supposed to go into treatment another job training just never make it there. I haven't seen it so. I think that the state has kind of failed to do that. Effectively are needed to put that first before people got out because nobody should go to prison for twenty two years for a gram of something too much but should be immediately taking their savings in turn their lives around in a week after they're out they might be on the street now at ten using again breaking into cars to feed feed that habit yeah so you know i feel like the lone voice on this lot of time most of the solutions rest with the county of los angeles which has the mental health as the hospitals the social services the state state which gives us affordable housing dollars and healthcare dollars or the feds so we've stepped up twice at the local level voters passing two measures to build a bunch of new housing <hes> and to provide services well. There's there's really compelling data now right that the actual cost of preventative costs way way lower than the services that that they use but could be a police or as you say emergency rooms. It's such a net win to invest in them as an even. If you're a fiscal republican yeah do it for your pocketbook. Yeah like in in finland. If you're an addiction problem the first thing they do is they put you in apartment total counterintuitive yeah here. It's like no you gotta. Earn your way to that you you stop using until we tell you we're very punitive society for whatever reason we just do it practically because look homelessness the trauma we see on the streets existed. I i believe five and ten years ago but more existed indoors. It uses the supply now so many jobs coming in a booming economy. It's counter intuitive more homelessness because all these jobs come in people who are the richest move at the top people who used to live in those housing units move down to the middle class housing bill bass people get smushed down to the lower class lower class to on the brink and people who are on the brink taken now are on the streets or in cars and so if we're did your wife work with path <hes> yeah we've done a lot with people sitting the homeless great organization this is my wife has forced me to do many i would. I would do nothing good in the world if i married her out of the feeling there's amazing success that we've had which is a tough message to sell because people see what's on the street but we've gone from nine thousand people a year being housed in l._a. The twenty two thousand last year reeling. If you told me four years ago we would more than double. It'd be like we're going to be done with homelessness and two or three years but the supply in accelerated beyond it went up sixteen percent in the city twelve percent in the county and on average thirty five percent in the state so the word doing when people say yeah. We still went up. My counter is the plan's actually working and that's why we didn't go up nearly as much we went up a third to half of everybody else but there's a larger force here you know cities run by republicans inland coastal throughout california and by the way beyond california new york spin up ten percent each year though the last time the nation took this on reagan was president tip o'neill was speaker acre senator kennedy found national priority. These are veterans. These are offends. Anybody's ever gone through mental health addiction issues with family members know how tough this can be. These are people who have exhausted probably their network and are cut off from their families. I go out and do a lot of outreach work. I got a couple of people to come in the street just last week going from ten to ten and when you hear the stories they're heartbreaking and they have nobody left to talk to go sixty thousand right. I mean that would be that would be a big city. It would be in the midwest the city of l._a. This twenty seven thousand we estimate on the streets wow yes such a daunting problem to tackle in again. I believe that that were so reluctant to invest in prevention brighten it yeah what percentage of the people on the street were probably the foster care system at one point. Oh huge percentage. Eh i don't have the youth it's overwhelmingly. The young people are either foster and or l._g._b._t._q. Youth in the country and here who you know their families families don't accept them and so they come to places like hollywood or you look at one other thing like for women ninety. One percent of homeless women have been either victims of sexual and domestic violence. So we know what causes these things you can point to a mayer and i accept responsibility for the response. I wrote a letter to the city saying somebody's got to and i will but if you think one person and caused or can solve this i need engagement of everybody and i will not retreat from this..

"Oh wow and i grew up with that so this was a businessman here who has business almost failed a couple of times. He had a union shop. 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.

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..
