"For me, Um, as I hear the request on the one hand, I understand our sense of geopolitical and humanitarian interest in what is happening, But I also cannot help but to think about 1994 Operation Uphold Democracy, which restored Aristide to power, but did not make circumstances in the long term. Better in Haiti. What are your thoughts about us intervention in this moment? I think sending US troops to ahead it would be a total mistake. For several reasons. First, what is happening right now, and the narrative has been pushed and and promoted. By members of the same group that supported Moyes. And that I still in relationship with members of PhD car, which is the political party of movies. And what they're trying to do is having the U. S troops come in. To protect them from different, uh, situations in Haiti. That would be a good steak. Secondly, do not knowledgeable so is excluding many of the Democratic organizations in Haiti. Grassroots groups the groups that have been fighting against corruption. Goods that have held, you know, um more used to be accountable to the expenses of the petrol carry the funds that he had squandered himself took money from those Funds when he was a private businessman and tell the the all the summary killings and the massacres that have taken place in 80 on the his administration. So what they're hoping to do is to bang the Marines back to Haiti to put that these people so that impunity continues in 80. And I think the biggest mistake the U. N has made and sometimes the U. S. Is to exclude those organizations. Those individuals, those big groups such as the church. The members of the percent of Catholic church, the grasses, organizations, the students, the unions, in fact, 95% of the population. Oh, that are represented by these organizations are excluded from the discuss right now. So, therefore, that's why if the U. S comes in, it would be enforcing the study school. That has put heavy in this situation comedy. So, Gary, I'm wondering about ways that the U. S. And or the U. N. Might be able to leverage its power or its relationships in Haiti in such a way that actually do elevate the voices and the capacity for exactly those organizations and individuals who are Haitian society in the ways that Francoise just laid out for us. Well, I think, uh, I agree which ones were absolutely there's no need for us military intervention, but I think there is room for us intervention and diplomatically. Politically. I've been urging the White House to really look at a different approach. We need to engage the Haitian American community there. I've written a column, you know, outlines some of the folks that I think in a position to really lead such a, uh Hey, the task force Asian Americans. Uh, the real stakeholders. Uh, in this crisis, we, uh have friends or family back home. Asian American send more than $2 billion annually back home, and we mix injuries. Remittance Excuse me, and so in the past, they've been ignored. Largely put in the side. We've been Spectators. I think right now we need to be players in this situation. Because everything has been talked about has been tried and I failed. We need to push the reset button and look at okay. How can we actually get this right this time? The civil society, Uh, members that Francois has spoken about. I never engaged by the powers that be in Washington, the U. N Even the organization of American stage when they come in. They just speak with what they think the important people in the government and the private sector to the and and they ignored the civil society. Wish as you all know is what is the backbone of any society. That story of ignoring civil society and grassroots leaders and organizations in order to just speak with who is perceived as Important. I mean, I just I just spent the week in New Orleans and it that that language describes to me So much of what happened in my beloved city immediately following the Hurricane Katrina disaster. I'm wondering, and Francois. Maybe you can weigh in on this as periods talking about this connection with Haitian Americans with stakeholders here in the states, there's also this. This issue of Haitian immigrants who have temporary protected status. I'm wondering sort of wear. The Biden administration is standing on the extension of that program. I know there's been extension, but whether or not people are still being deported, particularly back into an island that is in this kind of chaos. Yes, As of last week, there was one more number of people were deported back. To hit. The program has not ended yet. And sending people back to ready in. This chaotic situation is really inhuman in that sense, but the other thing I would add to what God he mentioned. Is the burden of the Haitian diaspora. Haitian Americans in term of economic, social and political bon beyond their relatives back home whenever hit is in the crisis. Patients in the diaspora, primarily in the United States have to send my money back home to support their Children, their family members and the friends so as a result, economically impoverished The Haitian Americans in the United States, therefore, raising the interest of the, uh American government and other governments where you're obliged patient, Um residents. To try to take care of the situation in Haiti, because I would I live with the burden of their own. You know, Haitian Americans and other um nationals. The other thing also I believe that it would be impossible for the bad in a musician to handle the number of refugees still becoming, they may not be land on the show of Miami.

"Backbone of any society that that story of ignoring civil society and grassroots leaders and organizations in order to just speak with who is perceived as important. I mean i just. I just spent the week in new orleans and that language describes me so much of what happened in my beloved city immediately following the the hurricane katrina disaster. I'm wondering and maybe you can weigh in on this series talking about this connection with haitian americans with stakeholders here in the states. There's also this this issue of haitian immigrants who have temporary protected status. I'm wondering what sort of where the biden administration is standing on the extension of that program. I know there's been extension but whether or not people are still being deported. Particularly back into an island that is in this kind of chaos. As of last week on there was a one mall number of deported. back to the programmers. Andy and sending people back to haiti in. This situation is the inhuman in that sense. The other thing. I i would i do what Guy mentioned is the burden of the fish and the aspe- haitian americans on the income of economic social and political mounted on their relatives back home. Whenever hit is in the classes haitians in the gas for in the united states. Have to send money back home. Super their children. The family members and defense so as a result economically it fish the haitian americans in the united states therefore it is in the interest of the american government and other governments where you have large asian residents to try to the situation haiti. Because i would. I leave you the burden of their own. You know haitian americans and other national the other thing also. I believe that it would be impossible for the biden under session to handle the number of refugees. That will be coming. They may not be land on a on the show miami.

And gary pierre pierre is the founder and editor in chief of the haitian times. Thank you so much to both of you. Thank you melissa. So how are haitians in the us processing the news. Last friday we spoke to three people deeply connected to the island to get reactions to the situation. My name is rico debris on the station. Director radio solvay. That's twenty four hour radio station here based in brooklyn as malan buster. And i'm the executive director of family action network movement from. I was born in haiti. But i've been living here for the past forty years ulker conditional fee lead organizer of the family action network movement. And i'm a person of haitian origin. It was not until five thirty in the morning that i heard something that sounded like the phone call. I heard the news about the assassination of a presidential we. While i was getting ready to go for my morning walk and i got up and i said my goodness i saw over twenty five to thirty phone calls. Maive home. phone was ringing of the at the same time with my cell phone and usually when when when that happens that is something horrible is happening so i woke up i was working on revising a document and then you know there were people in in my house including one of my sons who were saying you know jovan has been killed you know. The former president of haiti has been killed. When i received the call. She informed me that presented an animal. Ease was assassinated. I was really shocked. I was shocked. This was a shock. I got on whatever media i could you know. Npr's c. n. n. The internet at to figure out. What information can we get because there were reports also that the first lady had been killed. And so you know this was always oftentimes hussein heyday. The truth is worth more than gold so we were seeking to get to the bottom of exactly what was happening As details of what has happened has emerged. it's become very very clear that this is a very very gruesome brutal act. That happened Which was not enact in isolation but which follows many many many other murders. We've had massacres going on in haiti since the last week of june. Until the present where you know. Many dynamic feminist leaders journalist many people have been killed by death squads by armed gangs in really horrible fashion so This is just something that as details emerge it becomes more and more worrying for us. I'm fierce critic of the Regime of children. The deceased weather nolan Himself oppose always wishing. Hold the uscca actually. Tk wishy Definitely would deploy his death. He was killed That's what we wanted wanted him to cede power to himself for justice system to examine actions and before the countless crimes committed the country whether you were part of the of the majority of from the society from the opposition groups from the religious sectors sectors. Who have been organizing against a hem or whether you're part of the minority. That supported him right. It is it is shocking. It is shocking for sitting president to be Assassinated in his own and his wife shot at three times while his children were in the house. So whether you were for him or against them whether you agreed with movies. Politics are not the fact that he could be assassinated. Dini's own home highlights The the high level of instability and violence that permeated.

"We got a good old fashioned feud, not a family feud like a game show. But like a real feud between senators, right Hammer. Someone has called this a nerd fight, really Senator Ron Johnson against Senator Gary Pierre's nerve by nerve image. Senator Ron Johnson, Republican from the state of Wisconsin. Senator Gary Peters, Democrat from the state of Michigan. They went out of today during this Senate hearing, yelling at each other about Russian disinformation and the Hunter Biden probe and voter fraud and the 2020 election. So basically it was a contest of who's more full of crap. So we're going to hear from a Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin first So it's it's just galling, and I just have to point out that the purveyors of Russian disinformation Hillary Clinton's campaign, the DNC this Steele dossier, the ranking member Peters Accusing Senator Grassley Ni of descending Russian disinformation. That's where the disinformation is coming. That's where the false information the lies this false allegations. I can't sit by here and listen to this and say that this is this is not just information this hearing today This is getting information. We have to take a look at to restore confidence. In our election integrity. We're not going to be able to move on. Without bringing up these irregularities, examining them and providing an explanation and see where there really are problems. We can correct it moving forward. So that Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin calling out Senator Gary Peters saying, Listen, you guys air saying that, you know, we're pushing misinformation out there about the election. You are the people that brought the Steele dossier to the table and all the Russian collusion and all that garbage. They paid for it right. So let's hear Senator Gary Peters, the Democrat from Michigan, respond to being called out. Mr. Mr Chairman. I gotta respond to that. I mean, you're saying I'm putting out information? Well, once I had nothing to do with this report, you lied repeatedly. You lied repeatedly in the press that I was spreading Russian Russian disinformation, and that was an outright lie. And I told you to stop lying and you continue to do it. Mr Chairman. This is not about airing your grievances. I know what I don't know What Rabbit hole You're running down. You talked about Russia's own Randall's Center. Paul is simply not what we're dealing with. Mr Chairman. You can't make Judge Starr occassions. And and dropping it there. That is why I didn't Interpol. He's to return back to Tahrir. A partisan thinks this is this is this is terrible. What you're doing to this committee and all the great work that you talk to. It is what you have done. This committee's not also using the chairman of spreading disinformation. Nothing could have been further from the truth and you're spouting it again. Which is why I had fun. Seven ball. Mr Judge. Starr was outrageous little bit. Yeah, I mean, it's it's a blatant, I mean the Russian collusion narrative for years. It was pushed on us not only by the national news media, but by guys like Gary Peters and Adam Schiff and people in positions of power, and they said they had all this evidence and they had ever had one shred of evidence at all. And you know, January of this year they were convening to impeach Donald Trump. And when, when Corona virus was slowly I think, actually probably very quickly being spread across this country. And what were they doing when they were having a Senate intelligence briefing on covert 19? Nobody showed up because they were getting all their ducks in a row for presidential impeachment in January, so all that Russian stuff all of Ukraine stuff all culminated. This January with that, and look where we are now on Twitter at Maurice 45 tweets to us at Hammer and Nigel Peters and Johnson. Really? I bet they're both just a bunch of empty words. Thank you for that. Um, how much of this do you think is look, It's the end of the year. It's been an awful year. The worst things that could possibly go wrong. Have gone wrong. I'm just sick of looking at you may perfectly Oh well, not necessarily you, but like a new study found that 76%. Of US employees that are currently still working are experiencing worker burnout. So how much of that? Do you think? Some play here with old Johnson and Peters? Oh, sure. That's a good 00.76% of US employees currently experiencing worker burnout, according to a new study. I'd just be glad at this point to have a job. Now that we lied to you. I mean, there was this. This company is going through some stuff the past couple of weeks. Other radio companies gone through some stuff, And I'm just this attack This point. I mean, you and I have been doing this since March. We've been coming to work. We've been Um, you know, pushing through. Not that we deserve any award or our jobs or any harder than any other job. But those of us those of you, they're still lucky to have jobs and be employed or probably taking over the roles of some other people that had to be let go. And Yeah, I'm sure there is a lot of burnout this year. 76% say that they're experiencing worker burnout. So here is the hammering Nigel show. We have a new public service message to try to help.

M in Milwaukee has more. 29 year old late, talked with Biden from his hospital bed and describe the pain he's enduring, says his attorney, Ben Crump. Blakes. Family members have said he's paralyzed from the waist down after being shot by police. The Associated Press reports. Biden says Blake quote talked about how nothing was going to defeat him about how whether he walked again or not, he was not going to give up. Biden says his wife, Jill, and Blakes, mother said prayers President Trump did not meet with the Blake family during his Tuesday visit to Wisconsin, in part because the family wanted lawyers present. For NPR News. I'm ion Silver. In Milwaukee. The former speaker of the Ohio Houses pleaded not guilty to a federal corruption charge stemming from an alleged bribery scheme. Republican Larry Householder and four others are accused of taking $60 million and energy company money for personal and political use in exchange for passing a legislative bailout of two aging nuclear plants. Householder entered the not guilty plea during a brief hearing before a federal magistrate judge, the former speaker Tuesday in his first public comment on the matter, said he's innocent and expects to be exonerated. Number of Americans Following first time jobless claims fell last week dropping to 881,000. It marks the first time since the cove in 19 pandemic began in the U. S claims have fallen below a million. With more than 13 million Americans still receiving unemployment. It's clear that job market has a long way to go. Economists are expecting the economy will create around 1.4 million jobs last month when the monthly jobs numbers comes out come out tomorrow. Technology sector stocks have been big winners in recent weeks. But today, investors decided to take a chunk of that back with a major sell off in the sector, driving the NASDAQ down more than 5% at one point That quickly pulled the other major U. S. Stock market indices lowers well, Michael Farr, CEO of the investment firm Far Miller in Washington, doesn't think what happened today is necessarily a harbinger of things to come. This is much too minor to call a correction of any kind would have to give it a lot more days and see if the selling continues. So maybe some profit taking along with a lot of this computerized trading that tends to pile on and caused an exacerbate, you know these volatile moves in either direction.

Many of New York City's immigrant families are struggling with challenges from Corona virus, the faltering economy. And now the unusual school year. Gary Pierre Pierre is the founder of the Haitian Times and says many parents in his community are worried about sending their Children to school. And they don't have the answers to questions about things like child care. When they need to go to work. A lot of these parents are essential workers so they can't Find adequate decay for the younger Children. So what do you do? He says that more black and Latino parents than white or choosing remote, only instruction for their Children and city data supports that after seeing their community sickened by covert 19 at higher rates. A group of New Jersey attorneys has sued the federal government, saying that new works Immigration court is putting their lives at risk by forcing them to show up to hearings in person, Karen he reports on the arguments in court today. A federal judge says he doesn't quite understand how the government reached its decision to allow in person hearings again in Newark. He says remote video conferencing is the safest alternative during the pandemic, and he'd like to understand why that's not an option. Attorneys with the New Jersey chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, who filed the case say in person proceedings are still happening every day, but the judge denied their request to temporarily stop them until he gets more information from the government.

"In your experience, Mike. If the Catholic school as I'm sure you only really know about your own kids school, but are handling this with remote versus in person or whatever combination. Differently than what you're hearing about the public schools. I know you broke off a little bit. I'm I would I would say that. I'm sure every teacher Every teacher and whatever. School is going to be hyper village in I'm sorry, diligent or vigilant. And doing everything possible to keep the students safe. And I think parents need to kind of let that go a little bit. The only reason we didn't one of the main reasons we did not decide to send her And person was the busing situation, which he is eligible for. We weren't sure how that was gonna work out so I would Um You know, you weren't sure about the sea. We've committed to the virtual until first. I think December and we're going to see if things straight now, But we want so the Catholic school like the public schools gave you that choice as an individual family remote or not, is a hybrid. She was given an option of five days a week. Now the older kids were given split kind of thing. You know, every day's in two days, our virtual younger kids either all in or all out. Mark.

Okay, rise to the occasion rather and make sure that you know, we everyone understands. That is difficult. But we just We just have a sense that This was not a priority or even if it was. It was not taken seriously until the last minute, and we should have been talking about this back in July, and we just was not a private. It's me a someone who's looking at the city of it large in that necessarily just Asian community But a CZ resident of New York just like we didn't take this seriously enough, but You know, we know it was coming and hopefully things will go smoothly and that we've the students will be smart enough to social distance and and do it within that.

Net Kong and WN J 0 90.3 Toms River We on New York and New Jersey Public radio, where it's time for the latest news with Sean Carson. Hi, Sean. What's happening? Hey, Brian. Good morning to you. Budget watchdogs say Mayor De Blasio does not have to resort to extensive borrowing or laying off city employees in order to balance the budget W noises, Bridget Bergen explains. The mayor says the city needs borrowing authority from the state or 22,000. City workers will be laid off to close a $1 billion deficit. There are even bigger gaps in the out years. Maria Duelists of the Citizens Budget Commission says a better option is to ask city workers and retirees to chip in for their healthcare premiums. Currently, they pay nothing and that is just starting early. In contrast, Employees in the private sector. Breaux's lamb, state employees and federal employees working in Europe. State Union leaders say they've already produced health care savings and are urging state lawmakers to go back to Albany. Amusement park owners and Coney Island say their livelihood have been crushed this summer due to the pandemic. The New York City summertime mainstays have remained close, and there's no set date for the reopening. Gotham's David Cruz says that puts owners in a tough spot. Course the bills will continue coming and the time that they would be generating all of their yearly income. These these critical months they're just gone. The owners of Luna Park and Gino's Wonder Real Park of urge Governor Cuomo to allow them to re open with safety measures in place. The governor's office has not responded to our request for comment about if and when that might happen. Coney Island is officially set to close for the season on September 26th. Brooklyn Nets have signed Hall of Fame Point guard Steve Nash to be their next head coach, ESPN reports The deal is for four years, Nash was a two time n Ba Most Valuable player when he played with the Phoenix Suns. He spent 18 seasons in the league and most recently was a player development consultant for the Gold State Warriors, where he worked with current Nets forward Kevin Durant. Nash has no prior coaching experience in the MBA. He replaces Kenny Atkinson, who was fired in March after four seasons. ESPN also reports interim head coach Jacque Vaughn will stay on as assistant coach. In other sports news, legendary New York Mets pitcher Tom Seaver has died. Also known as Tom Terrific, and the franchise. Seaver won a career high 25 games to lead the 1969 Metz to their first World Series title. Well, you know, I see Jim O'Grady says he remembers as a child watching the Hall of Fame throws scorching pitches from the Mount. He would throw his body forward so much that his right knee would scrape the ground and I saw him just unleashed a rising fastball and made a hitter just look foolish. And it was that power. That was so attractive and so almost physically charismatic. Seaver died Monday from complications of Lewy body dementia and covert 19. He was 75 years old. Hey, Sean. You know Tom Seaver was on the show One time Really? And yeah, and it was so illuminating about him as a person like beyond his sports prowess. He was a pretty deep guy because he was here. A CZ, The spokesperson for a traveling exhibition that was called diamonds are forever artists and writers about baseball. And it was at the New York Public Library when it was in New York. So he came on the show to promote that, but it also traveled around the country, and there were displays of visual art that had to do with baseball. There was writing by all kinds of great writers. You probably know a lot of you know, legendary writers have Chosen to written to write one thing or another about baseball, and some of that work was on display and they chose Tom Seaver to be the spokesperson for this, and I think it might have been probably because of a story that he told us on the air. That day, which is that when he was a pitcher in the majors? You know, they spent so much of their time on the road going from city to city to city. Well, what do you do when you spend in essence, three months out of the year is what it adds up to Being in cities in which you don't live and your workday. If you think about it with baseball players is primarily at night. They play mostly night games, so they get off at 11 o'clock at night. Let's say And some of the guys are prone to going out drinking and staying up till four in the morning or whatever they do and see where wasn't like that. And he said what he got in the habit of doing was using his time off, which was in the in the daytime before he had a report to the stadiums. To go to the local art museum. Wow, and he became kind of an aficionado of the art museums of the various major league cities, and that was one of his things in it. You know, it's not the way we think of the stereotype of professional athletes, right And it was a little insight into the mind and heart of Tom Seaver. And, of course, one of the reasons that they must have hired him to be the spokesperson for that traveling exhibit on artists and writers about baseball. So that's just a window into another side of Tom Seaver that we were lucky to here on the show, and I thought I'd pass that along. Thank you. And and let that be a lesson to any professional athletes who might be tuned in. There's always space at the local museum and whatever you might be playing it at the time Once they reopened exactly Thank you so much for that right today. Here in the city. We could see some showers. Otherwise, it's going to be pretty hot will have a high of about 86 this afternoon, and that tomorrow mostly sunny with a high near 87.

"Folks, but Brian Lara shall team is taking a four day Labor Day weekend. But that doesn't mean not to listen. Because tomorrow it gives us the opportunity to re air some of our favorite interviews from the past few months, including a conversation with Isabel Wilkerson. Who's fascinating new book looks at what she calls the caste system in the United States. She kind of reframes American history through that lands, and it's really illuminating. Also any cloud on James Baldwin and a conversation on that Harper's letter from a few months back about free speech and cancel culture. We have two progressive self identified on different sides of sort of the cancel culture issue. So all of that in our Friday summer Friday special on the Brian Lehrer Show tomorrow. W N. Y c independent journalism in the public interest, 93.9 FM and AM 20 NPR News and their New York conversation. W. And so New York, the largest school district in the country. With 1.1 million students is Theo only major city nationwide planning TTO offer in person classes during the pandemic. When they're scheduled to reopen on September 21st for in person Learning. New York is also a city of immigrants, so we'll spend some time now talking about the potential impact. Of in person and remote learning specifically on various immigrant communities in the city. Different communities are preparing differently and have different needs and challenges and priorities. The only way to understand 1.1 million kids. Is not to look at them as a model. If so, with us now. Gary Pierre Pierre, journalist with the Haitian Times, she Ouch ng, wrong reporter with Sing Tao Daily, and Deborah Lee Santos, editor of The Manhattan Times and the Bronx Free Press. Welcome back all of you to the Brian Lehrer Show and listeners, especially those of you in immigrant communities for this call in we want to hear from you. Why you're sending your kids back to school? Are you opting out? What are your concerns about this coming school year? Or maybe you have a specific question for any of our Panelists. 646435 70 to 86 46435 72. 80 definitely let me start with you. We We know students who are learning English. And their parents who did not speak English fluently really struggled during remote learning in the spring. I think that's been pretty well documented. What's being done by the D O D to make it better for the fall? If anything, Well, good morning. Good morning. Delie has largely focused on assuring families. But whatever not inflate now will be And there's a real sense of preparation to come. You know, there's there's when pressed on the issue specifically on the devices that some found that yet have yet to receive. Thie response. The rapid response from both the chancellor on the mayor is that the families will receive what they think we have to call in and contact the school will contact the jury directly. And they will receive them. And that's been that's result in its various success level. I think Brian doesn't want I like to underscore Chu is that when you look at as many, many factors that have compounded this crisis for immigrant families And really, for all the Lee family specifically in the communities that were so hard hit by Ako bit, you're looking at not an abstraction. By any stretch, you're looking at a reality that was spells, vice death and grief and loss. With your families. And when you look at the ramp up to this preparation period that we've seen that this really Sense of we can do it. Ah, what seems to be missing by and large is a recognition that what is going to return to the site are of Children who were wounded. I hurt Aunt has suffered a trauma and it's really real preoccupation for many of the families for whom they that this conversation essentially has been has been lacking on DH even when the mayor and the chance or have gone on to visit the site and speak to principal that speaks to you. The labor leaders about the process, which seems to be missing publicly, anyway, to my mind into that of many others is any grilling each mint with students. And the idea that they are the ones who have been so impacted by the many of the state that they're returning to represent. Trauma is a grave concern to the family, despite the fact that they desperately want their Children to return to some semblance of a normal face. Wrong, Xiao Chiang, the data that I've seen suggest that a large majority Of Asian American students, actually, not a large majority, but more than another communities about 47% opted to go fully remote. This school year when the D O C sent out that that survey with those options that's that's a lot more apparently than in other communities, almost half the family's choosing to go remote. Why do you think that isthe and what is it? What does it mean about the state of learning in different communities? I realize, you know, even when we say Asian American students that represents Families from so many different countries, But But how did you enter that question? Brian. Yes, I think the figure actually reflect ah, that distrust among Asian parents to the city into the D O E. I need to say these days when uncover the mayor's press conference. I felt lucky that I I was I'm not the mayor because I know it's a hard job. When I talked to the Asian parents, I can feel the strong this trust. I think that this trust has been actually song before the enclosure in March. At that time when you know like Earth in early March, a lot of Chinese parents had already started to call the school to call the city too. Close the school because they saw what what was going on in China, and they they knew how serious things could be. But when the school when the city failed to do so, ah, lot of AH Chinese parents actually pulled their own Children from out of the school by themselves. So I think at that time they had already not really believing what the city are doing. They don't know what whether the city really know what it is doing. Uh, And now like you see, everything seems like the last a minute decision. The last minute changed from the opening date and to the inspection school. Ventilation systems and the mayor announced in like one day, he said, Um the workers has has checked 374 beauties in the past two days. Although the mayor said yes, this is we haven't just started to do this. We started, you know in Drew, and we have been doing this all the time. But really, if you started in June by this speed, two days, 370 beauties. At this time, it should all be finished. So that's I think that's the reason that a lot of parents Don't really trust the system. I think in terms of studying at home, they have already gathered some experience in the last semester, and I think I think that's not a big problem. And Gary Pierre Pierre from the Haitian Times. I see Black and Latino students are also happening to stay remote at a higher rate than white students. You want to add to what wrong was saying? Well, I grew up on. I think the ultimate problems with lies within the deal. I mean, this has been clear since back in even Joan that some drastic measures were necessary to make sure that you know, parents can feel comfortable sending their Children back to school, knowing that they will be healthy. And a lot of that wasn't done. I mean, you know, there was all this protracted fight with the union was sort of like 11 hour always save the day. But really, we're still very much unsure about what to do because to be quite honest of Haitian parents who I talked to, and teachers You don't have the luxury of choice person because a bad choice. What are your choices? Send your kids to school and was getting sick or keep him at home where you don't have the care. You know a lot about these parents are essential workers so they can't Ah! Find adequate declare for the younger Children. So why do you do so It's something that's been talked about how the community can pull resources to help each other. The parents I can't actually Had the skills to help do so you have buildings where people are pulling resources and parents taking turns helping out. So you know the community has to be very creative, and I think that's what's going to help to certain extent, because you know, like long is I don't wish to get to be in the mayor's shoes..

Oh, absolutely is like the most exciting thing schools close today, the down to the, you know, his his greatest moment, and again people who are get word alive or not. Sentient is my nineteen seventy eight his biggest moment was the blizzard of seventy eight. Right. And I mean that was the biggest moment for all those people that were in TV and radio was they were they were the only ones they everybody was pinned in their houses. And they couldn't even get home. Anyway. So they might as well be broadcast is for week. I remember, I I just I couldn't get out of my apartment for at least three days. It was. It was crazy. It was crazy time but memorable. Yeah. Yeah. I know and you couldn't and there were no ATM's. Now, if you had the have food. Yeah. If I lived I lived at Somerville. But my Bank was the Bank of Boston which was in Suffolk County. So I couldn't even get any money out of the Bank because I was in the wrong county, which was Middlesex again, if you could even get the money out because there were no stores open. So right. It was a great author. And he was I mean that was the that was the big days in that. You know that those days aren't coming back for for for for TV or radio. I think they're over absolutely. Well, eight four four or five hundred forty two forty two. That's the toll free number of the Howie Carr show. The ratings were down the ratings overall for for football this year were up because there was none of the kneeling nonsense. But there was no kneeling at it. They carefully brought the camera both benches very slowly. So that you could see nobody was kneeling. So there was there was a that was perfect. I have a feeling yet. No ratings were down forty four point nine rating. Everybody wants to see scoring. Yeah. Well, I don't think it was just that. I I I'm under the belief at this point. You've got so much fractional is viewing. And so much streaming going on that's not purely being measured in the overnights that there probably is, you know, that's not a real number in terms of total viewing. It's a real number in terms of TV viewers, which is a very different way to look at it. Right. You know, what else is the kind of lost its luster is the Super Bowl ads because they they start really around the terrible number one that terrible number two. They they start doing them like two three weeks in advance. They were clever like ten years ago when they started to release them early and put them on the net or put them in social media that was you know, creative idea. But now, they all do it. Now, they're so so by the time, it's sort of a damar as at the point at which you finally see them. So it's not quite as exciting anymore on top of that. I mean Budweiser what are they thinking? What a waste always wasted millions of dollars stuff like this. Dueling Clydesdale Turin. I mean, the they've got the, you know, all the farmers after them at this point. So they've probably lost every farmer in America because they're talking about corn syrup in their in their in their agreements, and what you know, somebody somebody said, yeah, somebody said earlier if you care about corn syrup. You've you don't care about beer period. Let alone. Budweiser. I mean had you been to the bars where the guys are arguing or ladies arguing about how much corn syrup was in. My point is chicken lobe is promoting you know, th there what they got some kind of gold or green green green Chick-fil-A. It's not Saint Patrick's Day and everything was, you know, about sustaining the environment, you know, or or a. We had you know, how many robots in commercials that seemed to be the threat this. I I didn't watch the commercials very closely this year where there are a lot of movies. Could you know, come out in the? The tall was struck me about the movies that they promote on the Super Bowl. And they by they spend millions of dollars. They're all interchangeable. They're all about like the. Aliens are asteroids hitting the earth. Awesome animated kids from. But one interesting thing on the ratings. However was in Louisiana New Orleans. They had a twenty three share which is half of the annual average Super Bowl year. Why star? I you blame him angry. To believe they weren't even going to watch the Super Bowl that's pretty angry. Understandably, but I'm surprised every news news site with message boards today. We had had people commenting from Louisiana said see see what happens when you would you keep the right team. You have a crappy game. Well, they're right. I mean that that was ridiculous call, but but that's life. Right. And and frankly, I thought it was interesting game in the sense that it wasn't your typical shootout. And it was all time football best part of the game was and I read it earlier from the daily based patriots the preferred team of white nationalists. Oh, what a night what a great take on. What did you see today? Shaughnessy the globe named Brady the greatest athlete ever in professional sports in Boston. I'm not sure I think that's a very interesting conversation. And I and I love one more net championships. Well, nobody's not. Because when you think about Russell and Cousy. Hi, giant bird and. Third one what three something like that? And then Ted Williams. You gotta give me Ted went to the off to the war came back. So it's certainly a debatable point. Yeah. Ten ten Williams. I mean. Yeah. I if if Ted Williams doesn't go to both World War Two and the Korean war, right? He's probably got like eight hundred home runs side. I mean, he's he's probably one of the greatest hit is forty. He hit three eighty eight almost hit four hundred when he was forty years old after missing five years of his career to fight in wars and not your head shot. Joe? Korea. Right. He wasn't a fight. He wasn't fighter pilot planes both wars and got shut down over career. And or no his crash landed in career and walked away from that. And you ever been in my office. No, you have no I have a picture of him signing his contract. And you know, he's with okay that. Ralph Northam like, Tom Yawkey, Tom Yawkey way. We can't talk about Yawkey. I know I'm I'm gonna have to cover that picture up. Aren't you might be investigated? You better watch it. Right. I always suspected you as a right wing fascist. I believe Williams is one quarter. Mexican he today today, he would be Hispanic. He would be considered Hispanic. You might be running for president with the same the same. Wayne is I have a solution for the wall, by the way, which I didn't express last Amazon, and that is I suggest they take for for Pelosi Pelosi sake, I suggest they take the entire border away from the southern part of of California and then put a border wall around California. And and I think that would really solve the problem. You know, they don't have to have a wall and the rest of us don't have to have them. It's amazing thing you can't bring you can't bring foreign plants in California. But if you're a federal dealer. Come down. Yeah. Yes. Right. Eight four four or five hundred forty two forty two seven seventy one says Gary LaPierre was what news used to be? He delivered the news not as opinion. God bless him. He was he was really a good newsreader. Yeah. But that was see. But that's not really true. Because you know, I I mean, I don't remember any opinions he ever had well, but it was slanted. Certainly in a way that presented a story that was the vet the news stations hoped to project. I mean, you gotta remember this was written by them edited by them. They weren't just reading the wire not all the time. But I notice a slant sometimes on busy that I never used to notice. Like oh now. Yeah wing. Oh. Without a doubt. Yeah. Our sister station, except when they're playing cuts from my interviews here on wwl in which case totally now in the middle and we love being on. But anyway, I'm Howie Carr. Change.
