"Memory by tuning in your attention and we'll dive right in now today. We're going to have a very sort of deep discussion that has to do with memory and every time every week i say. Get your notebook ready or sharp up your memory by tuning in your attention and the reality is that memory is a cognitive skill that is one of the keystone skills in human development and learning The thing is with memory is you can actually have your memory by at least fifty percent simply by paying attention and yet we live in a world as we said in our show Week or two ago that people have lost the ability to focus.

"Us prepare for the next big one by Eric, Jay Dolin. The philosopher and Essayist George Santayana once wrote those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it with respect to hurricanes. This saying is both wrong and right depending on one's perspective. It is wrong in that no matter how much we know about past hurricanes new ones will always arrive creating a repetitive history of widespread damage economic pain and death. However by remembering and understanding the history of hurricanes we as a society can decide how best to respond to the continued barrage that is surely to come from the greatest storms on earth thereby lessening their impact. Today as. Threatens the East Coast with flooding after making landfall as a hurricane on Monday how we respond takes on an added level of urgency especially in light of the threats posed by global warming. In an average year, six hurricanes dance over the Atlantic three of which are major hurricanes defined as having sustained winds of at least one hundred eleven miles per hour. The number of hurricanes varies from year to year. Fortunately, few of these storms actually make landfall typically to hurricanes hit the United States annually and a major one pummels the country only about once every two years. Hurricanes leave behind a trail of devastation. Since nineteen eighty, they have accounted for roughly fifty percent of the cost of all the natural disasters in the united. States that exceeded one billion dollars in damage. Going back to the late eighteen hundreds, hurricanes have killed nearly thirty thousand people. And according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. There is a sixty percent chance that the twenty twenty hurricane season, which runs from June through the end of November will be above average with six to ten hurricanes perhaps three to six of them major. I have long been fascinated by hurricanes even though my personal experience with them is minimal and not particularly noteworthy having lived in new. England. Where hurricanes are infrequent visitors most of my life in nineteen ninety, one, I toured the wreckage. Hurricane, Bob left in its wake on the shores of Cape Cod and in twenty twelve, I watched the massive waves from hurricane sandy pound the beaches and lead to coastal flooding in my hometown of Marblehead Massachusetts. Eager to learn more about these storms, I began to research American history's most memorable, dramatic and destructive hurricanes. These include the Great Galveston hurricane of nineteen hundred, which leveled thousands of buildings and claimed at least six thousand lives making it the deadliest natural disaster in American history..

"Streets. To which Dr King Might Respond. yes, I. Remember the lunch counter. Sit Ins where we were spit on where they poured food on US and showered us in slurs Oh, and they beat US senseless in the street for holding signs and marching for justice. These are not protestors. Some say they're thugs. and Dr King interjects yet again. These are people. Not Thugs or criminals I remember in nineteen sixty eight, when my colleague Reverend James Lawson stood and addressed a crowd on the very subject of police brutality. Do what he said. He said at the heart of racism is the idea that a man is not a man that a person is a person. You are human beings. You are men. You deserve dignity. So why in the year of our Lord Two, thousand and twenty are we having an imaginary conversation with Dr? Martin Luther King Junior. Because instead of living into his dream, instead of fighting to keep it alive, we have whitewashed it the point of being incompatible with the very man who dreamed it. We've slipped again. into a state of Cultural Amnesia and we're walking around. Wearing rose colored goggles. Police brutality and systemic racism didn't just reemerge unexpectedly. Oh, where did you come from like a horror movie villain who refuses to die, so we need a sequel. It never laughed. or a someone has said racism isn't getting worse. It's simply getting captured on film. To see the full scope of this problem I believe we have to rely on hindsight. But whose hindsight! Those who think we would do well to revisit the practices of Dr. King If only it were that simple. If a Nobel, peace prize didn't keep VAT wonderful, amazing, human safe, and if you can't even take a knee during a song without calls for your deportation, what makes us think putting on suits and ties and marching arm in arm is going to make it work this time. Philosopher George Santayana warned us. that. Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it. I think that's absolutely right. The problem is that history is just that it's his story. WHO GETS TO WRITE HISTORY? And if we relegate black history to the story of struggle, and then stick it in the shortest month of the year, limited to a few paragraphs and a screening of routes. No wonder we can't see the full picture. No wonder we can appreciate the beauty and celebrated. In, please hear me. We haven't even started talking about indigenous people. In our other brothers and sisters of color. But, if we don't take several steps back and grapple with the ugly story of our collective history, we will almost certainly repeat it and I think that's exactly what is unfolding in front of us. If this truly is the land of the free and the home of the brave. We need to demand freedom for all people. And stop being so damn afraid of those brave enough to stand and fight for it. If we would just stop reposting memes long enough to carefully engaged with Heinsohn. We will see the lives of so many amazing men and women who risked life and limb. To ensure a better world for their children and We must honor their voices. We must carry their stories. We must lean from their wisdom. and. We must refuse to allow their efforts to be white, washed and deluded by the privileged and comfortable. Even if that means disturbing our own privilege in comfort.

"You have a right, not only a right, but an obligation when something illegal is taking place. To make a point even if the officer who's doing it is a senior officer with greater experience. Can you speak to that whole dynamic? Sure? I entered the United States military, Academy at West Point on July first of nineteen eighty three along time ago. You know the first lesson. I was taught there after it does not lie, cheat or steal or tolerate those who do you know what the first lesson was? You have to follow orders of a superior unless those orders are unlawful and higher, and we select officers in the United States military for their judgment discernment. On the Gantt we do the same thing in law enforcement we select p police officers and law enforcement professionals that had the requisite judgment in discern in that instance. Yes, somebody should step forward. You can blame it on training. You can blame it on culture from the top, but the bottom line is, there were individuals there that saw a man struggle to breathe struggle to live, and did not intervene do. Do I think they went to work that day. As racist rednecks thinking of themselves, we're going to go out and kill a person of color. No, I don't I think that they made a calculated horrifically wrong judgment and their actions or actions contribute to man's death. That's how I see last night. was rough for those of us who live here for all the obvious reasons. It got very ugly. Wants, it turned. It seemed as if there was no turning back. There was a lack of law enforcement presence. Frankly, there was a lack of any sign of leadership. I guess you could say until today when the governor maids pretty pretty much clear that he is taking this thing over. We know a lot of the principles here. We certainly know of them. You may not know so much, but I'm very curious for that reason to get a detached view as to what you observed and what you saw. And what do you think was doable? That might have helped. What will all agree? No matter how well you plan, and how well you have things put in place is going to be a very challenging situation. I'll share with you one of my favorite quotes of all time. George Santayana wants dangerously said those who forget history are condemned to repeat it I lived through the ninety two riots in La I was a brand new FBI agent, and yes deployed there with other law enforcement to support the police and try to get that city back under control I lived through the two thousand fourteen in two thousand and fifteen summers post Ferguson decision, and obviously in the Baltimore uprisings. I'm student. A history I've studied what went on the late sixties and cities like Philadelphia and Newark. How is it that we? We haven't learned any lessons when this deal went viral on Monday night. Remember we're ninety six hours out from this. It's not like it's been like it feels like it's been a year and it feels like it was last night, but in that time how could better decisions have been made to pre position folks to bring in the state police sooner to possibly look at calling the national guard sooner at least putting them on notice to bring in federal assets and look it's easy for me to Monday morning quarterback, I mean I spent twenty five years in the bureau made a lot. Lot of decisions in the crisis, management realm served with the hostage rescue team ran a SWAT team I understand how difficult it is to do things in an information vacuum. That's not what this was all the cards on the table you had to know. Expect that Minneapolis and other major cities around the country. We're going to be a veritable powder keg, a ticking time bomb, and here's how you here's how you mitigate that you show up in force. You put out right away is not going to happen. Look, we understand the anger. We understand the demand for justice. We understand the desire. Desire for answers, but having said what I said, those officers desert, due process like any other citizen, and if you burn the city down, you're not hurting anybody else, but the people that live there. You're destroying livelihood. You're destroying businesses. The way people feed their families and you're putting people's lives in danger. Don't do it. I was disappointed in the law enforcement response and I take from the federal all the way down to the local level they could have and should have done a better job with the, and maybe this is an unfair question from your distance, but I'll try it nevertheless. The the press conference this morning. The governor it you know his his saying sort of through the covid nineteen winter's been. You know one Minnesota and there was nothing one Minnesota about that presser because it although he denied it later, it certainly appeared that he wanted to make sure that he was waiting for better cues from the mayor's especially the Minneapolis mayor on what he needed before he stepped in and used the powers that he had others have said we'll know the. The governor should have been more front and center going all the way back to win like you say we find out. There's a video and we know there's GONNA be trouble. It's just a matter of how much how do we determine where the biggest leadership vacuum is more on the mayors of cities in this situation to to send the proper queues to everybody including the governor, or is this more a governor issue in your mind from the beginning from a leadership standpoint? You know, and this is me spitballing because you know I. Am an elected official in new. York I'm a lowly village trustee, and it's very very small village, so I'm not gonna I'm not gonNA. I'M NOT GONNA profess to be a big time, state governor or or a a mayor of a major. United States city. I think this does fall back on the governor. I. Don't believe whatever you think of the politics. And you and I aren't getting that. We're looking at this from a as a as best. We can't call balls and strikes. The state and the nation have the resources I do not believe the city of Minneapolis does, and that's not a. that's not sliding the city of Minneapolis I don't know too many cities other than maybe New York in A. That have the type of resources you know at hand that they could use, but it's also. All those units have to coalesce. The mayor has to get along with the governor. Governor, the governor has to have a direct line to the president. All those different you know agencies in between the federal side with the FBI ATF and local police and state police. They've all got to be integrated cooperative law enforcement is the only way you get through this..
The Great Toilet Paper Shortage
"The great toilet paper shortage. No I'm not talking about a toilet. Paper shortage caused by the corona virus. Won't get to that in a minute. I'm talking about the shortage of Nineteen seventy-three. This was a time of shortages. Many areas oil scares great economic. Stressors kept Americans on edge so when herald the FROLIC a Republican congressman at the time? Put out a press release warning the public about a possible and in no way imminent toilet paper shortage and night time comedian. Johnny Carson echoed the press release. Well put people on edge and I've got digs out quote from Johnny Carson. He's doing his stand up monologue. You know we've got all sorts of shortages these days but have you heard the latest. I'm not kidding I saw the papers. There's an acute shortage of of toilet paper and now that's an exact quote from Johnny Carson. At the time he had twenty million viewers the ground had already been laid for troop Hanoch amongst consumers carson simply ignited the spark for full blown madness. Millions of Americans across the country flooded local grocery and convenience stores. Totally wiping them clean of all toilet paper. One consumer told New York Times that after hearing it on the News Day. Bought an extra fifteen roles. Another woman asked her party guests to arrive with the roll of toilet paper and again I remind you this was all taking place in Nineteen. Seventy three for a few must toilet. Paper continued to be a rare find. Until like most short-lived trends the fizzled out in the aftermath. Carson was hotseat receiving a large portion of the blame for fueling the shortage. Myth Carson issued a sincere apology to viewers and again this is a quote from Johnny Carson. I don't want to be remembered as the man who created a false toilet paper scare. I just picked up the item from the paper and enlarge it somewhat. There is no shortage. That's a direct quote from Johnny Carson Nighttime Comedian back in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy three. At this point in time the damage has been done and Americans were passed all the potty drama most people would place the blame on Johnny Carson for causing the T. P. Panic but is he solely accountable even before Carson's joke on the Air Americans themselves are partially to blame for the self-induced toilet paper trauma. Can you blame them? These people were used to shortages of everything from oil to that true panic stem from a blatant rumor. Could it be a deja Vu today? The Washington Post reports a run on roles with both Costco. Another supermarket. Chain stripped all but clean even Amazon's physical stores appeared to be down to single rolls of Toilet Paper The New York Times similarly reported from a whole foods supermarket in Somerville Massachusetts where shoppers had to be limited to two packages of toilet paper. Each lease they strip the store bear. There was no shortage of toilet paper. Nineteen seventy three or today. Nearly fifty years later no shortage. There is a quote that applies to the story that you might be familiar with. Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. The quotas most likely due to writer and philosopher. George Santayana it expresses the sentiment. Ably that history repeats itself it that is true then. We simply need to pay attention.

But in any case, along the way they bought the village voice, they were the big all we folks, and one of their main money-making activities was back page. And so the bad part of back page is that there was traffic gang going on him back page to some degree. But there was also a lot of consensual sex work advertising, which sex workers found useful way of vetting people and also just like selling consensual sex work, and the most interesting thing to me is the government in prosecuting Lacey and Larkin is arguing that their efforts to clean up the site actually just hid all the really bad various things that were going on. So what they as back page was coming under fire. The people actually dealing with these ads coming in. We're trying to take out certain like terrible words like Lalita.

In fact, Chris Cuomo thinks they that sometimes it's justified to use that force on the left. That's what he said. But if somebody on the right did it man, that'd be the end.

And if the other side's all about winches coming right now. Right. I might lose my towel for like two or three days. I'm getting all these emergency things but notices something's going on with the nine one one. It's not nice. It's not it's not comfortable to go without Powell for even a couple of days in this area any area in in. That's what. That's what that's what it's all about. You know what I mean?

But now there has to be work done by everybody. If you want to bring back the values of this country to where they were that made this country great this country went into the tank under Obama. And Paul Ryan is I said gave him all he wanted in his budget. So Paul Ryan was no help. Success used to be fired. Now, what do you have the Democrats scorned.
