See rule the new rule of mercy rule in spring training that has allowed this year, so he got only one out during his first start, loading the bases and walking in a run through 23 pitches in the first inning.

"All right alleged. Do this how are you. What the fuck what. The fuck buddies. What the puck knicks. What's happening. i'm marc maron. This is my podcast. Rest in peace. Larry king one of the great interviewers passed away a few days ago. We re posted my conversation with him which was a little tense at the beginning but then it eased into something kind of great. So if you're not familiar with larry in that way as wary talking about larry. It's it's a nice experience and we do that here at At the shop we re post the talks. I had with people who passed away in in memory of them. It's not something i like to do. But it's something i'm happy to do. And it also reminds me of my own life experience of where. I was what i was doing. Two thousand and thirteen driving to beverly hills to talk to larry king who is upset with me because we had gotten times crossed up. I thought i was on time. He thought i was weight. But it's It's it's a moment in time and you know he will be missed but no one can say he didn't live a full life. It's always sad when people pass but it's a little more understandable when their oldest fuck but Yeah today on the show. I talked to george wallace. The comedian probably seen him doing standup somewhere. Even if you don't watch a lot of stand up he's he's been doing it everywhere for decades and now he's got a renewed popularity because of his twitter feed. He's got a new book out called bull twit and whatnot and Yeah i've talked to him. Sort of amazing. I haven't talked to him yet. He's a guy that started in new york. He's one of these guys you know when he come up as a comedian when of the the things you deal with depending on the club if there's a club that's old club that's been around for a long time. There are a few comedy clubs that come to mind. Certainly the comedy store here in los angeles but like zanies in nashville where there's just hundreds of headshots of people from back in the day and as a young comic when you work these clubs there were more than back in the day road. Club's at Lasted through the eighties. That had been there since the beginning. And you just walk around looking at these pictures and you wonder like what the who's zach. What happened that guy to do a used to do a joke about that about the about the comedy store when he walked into the comedy stories. Just like hundreds of ed shots the the gallery of sadness where you you play the game. Whatever happened to that guy probably ended. Okay maybe not. But whatever. But i just remember george wallace's picture at the comic strip in new york another one of those places where it was just a strange black and white promotional shot of him as a preacher and i was wondering like what was that about so that was interesting to talk to him about about that. I don't know what's going to happen. None of us do. I know we feel better. Now that we've been released from this hostage situation from this fucking that we've had to go through this toxic brain fucking american fascistic swarm but i do think i have to acknowledge. I don't know about you. But because of what i've experienced over the last year with the the death of someone i loved and the general condition of plague and donald trump's presidency is. I believe that. I am experiencing some ptsd. And i think we all are. And i think it's ongoing. I think we've adapted to this isolating life or to this walk down life and whoever you know however many of you having to go to work every day and live in that the sort of fear of that hopefully many of you who who need who are vulnerable. Who are older. I'm getting the vaccine and feeling a little bit more safety but there is a ptsd that we're going to have to through. I think i don't know how. I don't know where this goes but i just hope you're taking care of yourself. I have begun a meditation practice. That i've been told that i should do for years but i've been doing it and i've added some yoga to it back in the day. Not too far back but in the last decade i used to do yoga once a week. Some hot flow. Yoga would joe at the hollywood. Ymca and i haven't done it in years. But i bought a nice matin. I've got it right next to my bag. It out of bed. I do a few sun. Salutations and then. I sit cross legged and i throw on the head space app and i don't know if that's i. It's weird because i listened to that guy. Okay take a few deep breaths breathing in the nose out through your mouth okay. He gives you a little pep talk. Some kind creativity is something we all want to do. But i can't quite do his voice. But i'm finding that the guided meditation thing. You know where you're supposed to if you have a thought you know don't get mad. Whatever get back to your body get back in your breath but you know he's talking by gets your point with guided meditation where you like. I was right there. And then you had. What tell me to count my breath. Count you breaths up to ten in and out one two three. Just pay attention. I was i was in it. I was right there. I do seem to get there after about ten minutes of him when he says time to open your eyes. I'm like i just got in it. And now i've been staying in a little longer again. Don't know what it does. I don't want don't know what it's for. I don't know why. But i'm doing it because it can't fucking hurt and god knows i have the time and the guy need to stretch because i'm compulsively exercising to maintain my sanity and i'm fifty seven fucking years old and i wake up and i feel like i'm broken. I feel like the entire machine needs fucking oil. I feel like oh my god. Is this the way it's going to be for the rest of it so the yoga's helping the breathing's helping it's all helping but it's weird isn't it man it's weird there's a a creeping sadness still isn't there but i do know this now is the perfect time to turn your best idea into a new website and you should do it with squarespace. You'll find what you need whether you're showcasing you work blogging and publishing content selling products.

I love these kinds of people and they always wanted both ways. America's tyrannical so i declare myself independent. You will say for real men. White people never cease to amaze me. I mean they will follow all the rules of escape the room to the letter but the moment you ask them to where mosque they turn into freedom fighters. Where was that freedom loving attitude. When i try to pick the luck instead of searching for clues. Hot chad ha chad now. Eventually the police did come to shut down the spa and that my friends is when denny. He's luck rarely started that defiant general manager. Staten island bar was released without bail after he was arrested for hitting sheriff's deputy with his car. This weekend deputies tried to arrest danny prestige after he allowed people to gather at max public house when it was supposed to be shut down when they followed him up the block to his cars. They say he ran and drove off hitting a deputy who rolled onto his hood. And despite this surveillance video that shows the incident press team has a different version of what happened when the investigation is complete. You're gonna find out that. I did nothing wrong weight. Then do to so lucky his wife you can you imagine cup. Say you hit one of them with your car and then you get released without bail. No bail misbelief if he was black. Those cups would have dragged him out of his car. Beat the shit out of him and then beat the shit out of his car and you got to appreciate how he's saying. An investigation is complete. You'll see that. I did nothing wrong. A man you're on video the investigation's all but less than five seconds is just did the investigation and they show your s drive into some police case closed so instead of being punished for plowing into a cop. This guy gets away with it like. He's in grand theft auto. And it's even better than that at least in grand theft auto. You got to go into hiding for a bit before. You're safe no. This guy immediately went to brag about it on fox news. And i'm looking at your business and you're getting killed and these restrictions i mean. Do people really understand your heart. Life and soul is involved in this sir. I just want to say. I applaud a lot of these small business. Owners that peacefully push back against this because they have no other recourse show. you is. People are frustrated and they're protective and they feel like the government is not looking out for by. Should reveal this danny. But i actually know cops that are telling you privately whispering new year. They don't wanna do this to you. There'd be forced to and. I'm really sorry that you're going through all those to be very honest boy. You so lucky white. This dude has a whole network apologizing to him for running over. Wha- policemen policemen any network for fox. News fox away stands with cops against black people but when it's a white guy suddenly fox goes breaking news. The police smoke weed every day. They even told him he was peacefully pushing back when he was pushing with his car. Your you serious right now when black people just walk in the street fox causing a riot but this white guy drives into a cup and police officer officer of the law and fox. News is like now this is. This is a hit and run. This is a hit and run. That martin. Luther king junior would've been proud of but i've got one question for you.

"Fox. Each episode I guess comes on to play a clip of their jokes and then discusses how they wrote it and how it fits into what they're trying to do with their comedy. This week's guest is the God. Dang legend George Wallace George Wallace who was born Henry Wallace changes name for SAG, reasons starting to comedy the same day literally the same day in the late nineteen seventies as his future best friend Jerry Seinfeld. Like Jerry George just has a joke writers. They go through the world like like Terminator and everything they see just sort of gets through as a joke it must be very frustrating as a way of living, but it is. The reason why they're able to be so prolific. So George never wanted a sitcom of his own, but but just like Jerry did find a way to remain relevant for nearly fifty years, which is. Unbelievable when you think about it. For, while he was one of the country's most in demand stand-ups but more recently, Georgia's found new audience on twitter because. In my opinion is the best twitter feed to follow. It's hard to describe why he While everyone else is sort of screaming about whatever the thing to scream about is that day he's like consistently so silly and so a world in his own that like every tweet see from him is like a breath of fresh air and literally if you aren't even on twitter, you should just periodically just go in and check his tweets. It rules. For today's episode, I asked George to send me a joke. You know like, I. Always. Do in response his team semi a really long super cut of him doing a variety of jokes under one theme one catchphrase which was stupid stuff. George throughout his career has had a variety of catchphrases phrases I think in his probably his most well known. And he'll have these frames and it was sort of right like hundreds of jokes that fit under it that he can sort of feed in and out depending on how the audiences responding depending on what context season and. So. It's important to note that the clips are all from different shows in different venues is that that is something we talk about a lot in the interview to explain the first clip is from two thousand, sixteen, an appearance he did at the Montreal just for laughs festival, which is the comedy industry's biggest event every normal year the next one was filmed in two fourteen as he is wrapping up his historic ten year run at the Flamingo in Las Vegas, which at the time earned him the nickname of the new Mr Vegas.

On display is how a master works a joke you know it's It's really a matter of having interest a huge report why I've heard George say that he essentially has like five six hours worth of jokes and he just decides what to tell based on how the nate's going and. That is what the communities of his generation were trained to do, which is this right jokes over and over again about as many things as possible. There are few comedians ever who were as good as it as Georgia's. So here is George Wallace. If, you can't laugh listen you can't laugh in a where did you know that people say.

"It may sound familiar. We're actually going back more than five decades on the show today to a time when Alabama governor four time presidential candidate George. Wallace was perfecting the politics of resentment and race baiting. Lot of people have commented on the similarities between that time, and now John Lewis was one of them. Louis, of course, was the legendary civil rights leader Congressman who died last month you'll hear his words later on the show. Lewis surprising take on Wallace. He questioned if Wallace actually believed outweigh things he was saying. Lewis Theory is that George Wallace was a savvy politician and he knew just what to say to get ahead. George Wallace. His political career as a moderate with black support, the end Lacey Pe- even backed him in his first bid for governor. But after he was defeated nineteen fifty eight following the Montgomery bus boycott in the Supreme Court decision in Brown versus board of Education Wallace course in his next election Wallace rebranded himself and one. As, he stepped up to the podium at his inauguration in nineteen sixty, three wallace delivered. One of the most vehement rallying cries against racial equality in American history.

Obama urges Americans to honor John Lewis' legacy by voting

"For the funeral of Congressman John Lewis rose to its feet with an up roar of applause during a eulogy from former President Barack Obama. Mr Obama talked about the selfless sacrifice of the civil rights leader and that the voting rights he fought for our under siege by President Trump, who's floating the idea of delaying the election. Joining us live to talk about CBS analyst Leonard Steinhorn. Great to have you, Leonard? Happy to be here so to other presidents were on hand. But it was poor former President Obama, who offered this impassioned defense of democratic ideals that he says are being threatened. He's been more outspoken, but not like this. Can you talk about it? Look essentially what President Obama was saying is, if we wanna honor John Lewis's legacy, truly honor it. We need to finish the work of John Lewis's lifetime. Which is to ensure voting rights, for all with no obstacles in anyone's way and in effect. What he did with his rhetoric is he entered the political fray not directly not through partisan attacks, but with clear and pointed assaults on those Particularly Republicans, who were doing exactly what John Lewis fought against all of his life, which is to undermine the voting rights of the American people, So he did it through lofty and impassioned rhetoric. But his message was clear. He was definitely part former president and part preacher today, talking about the protests as well, something that Louis energized in his day is a civil rights leader, nearly losing his life in the fight. Can you characterize what Mr Obama said, and its relevance at this moment in history? So, in essence, what President Obama did was draw a straight line from Bloody Sunday on the Edmund Pettus Bridge from Bull Connor in Birmingham. ER, George Wallace. The black lives matter. And the civil rights struggles of today are voting rights struggles of today. So you know, he basically said Bull Connor may be gone, But today we witness with our own eyes, police officers. Kneeling on the next of black Americans. George Wallace may be gone. But then, he said he worries about the federal government's sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators. Clearly referencing what happened in Lafayette Square when President Trump wanted to go to the church and hold up his Bible. So he drew a straight line from John Lewis in the 19 sixties tow what's happening today, and clearly, that was a strong message that this next generation now has to take the torch. And continue on with the fight that John Lewis began when he was just Ah, young, a young man in 1960 CBS News political analyst Leonard Steinhorn Thanks so much for being here. Thanks Always. By the

"A. I'm Todd Willie Broadcasting from WBZ H. M. in Birmingham Alabama. I have stood for one. Jefferson Davis stood and a lot of people. It is very appropriate from this cradle of comparison. This part of the Anglo Saxon south land in the dust and I say segregation now. Tamara and Sarah Gatien for George Wallace. During his inauguration as governor of Alabama in one thousand nine hundred sixty three that very year George Wallace tried to stop the integration of the University of Alabama and. He tried to stop it himself. George Wallace famously stood in the doorway foster auditorium on the school's campus to block two black students. Vivian Malone and James Hood from entering despite this history wallace. His name still appears on buildings all across Alabama including the Bell Wallace Gymnasium on the University of Alabama campus. Right here in Birmingham later. We're going to talk about Wallace's influence on shaping American populism and how his legacy has reverberated across all of America. Not just in the south but first we start here at the University of Alabama at Birmingham where some students say. They don't agree with having a building named for George Wallace on their campus. Here to talk with us about George. Wallace's legacy is a current student organizer at the University of Alabama at Birmingham Sri Apocryphal Shrill. Welcome to one A. Thank you so much. You're having talk a little bit about the controversy around the building. I mentioned the Bell Wallace Gymnasium on the grounds of the University of Alabama at Birmingham. So like you said. It's building is named after George Wallace. Who is famous segregationist This building isn't widely used for classes currently but it's still very visible on campus and is very much a s students enter the campus for the first time as their touring is something that comes up often or the freshman year on campus. They noticed this building and they ask. Why is there a building named after segregationist on campus as diverse and promisingly inclusive as? Uab is and so. This is a conversation that continuously comes up to him. You say you say it comes up a lot. It's not it's not one or two people knocking on the door of the student union. I mean it comes up a lot among students. What do they what do they say when they say why George Wallace? Why does it say that they primarily start with our student body aside diverse and UAB claims to be very diverse and inclusive university from having programs centered around diversity departments around diversity inclusion and so having this building named after George Wallace does doesn't align with what the university claims to promote well? There's another building on campus named for Lister Hill. Who is a congressman from the fifties and sixties? Who signed the southern manifesto vowing to oppose integration of public places? Have there been any moves if not to change these names to acknowledge the segregation that these politicians espoused. What's it looked like on campus? So there's no movement around Lister Hill currently but there's a wider went around George Wallace and I'm part of a student Coalition called students for justice in Birmingham along with other three other student activists and we are working to implement human rights trail on campus. That would mark fourteen different locations on campus. Where historical civil rights movement situations occurred from Integrating UAB to the funerals of the three of the four girls who were murdered and that Sixteenth Street Baptist Church and we hope to place marker at the George Wallace building saying the holistic story of George Wallace from saying that he donated a lot of money to ABC kind of made the university what it is today by donating lots of money and furthering its medical enterprise in everything but also acknowledging that he was a segregationist and would not have agreed with a majority of the students population just for because of who they are. So what you're talking about is an effort from the perspective of you and your allies to tell the full story of George Wallace. Not just you see buildings named after someone you assume. That must've been a grand person. Who was great for my state or the state where I go to school you. You're not talking about scrubbing that. Name in Alabama. You're talking about a a fuller story so my the student group I'm part of we are working on the markers while we stand in support with removing the name. That's not the initiative that we're currently working on ourselves but we support the effort to remove the name. We got this voice mail from a listener. Who grew up in Alabama when George Wallace was governor? And here's what they had to say about. The buildings that are still named for him across the state today. Problems born and raised in Alabama in the fifties and sixties and I was there during all of that. The integration of the University and George Wallace being voted in and then his accident so I don't see a problem with those buildings being named after him because he apologized publicly to the African American. Well is black then community. Sure what do you think about what Laura has to say? That George Wallace apologized to the black community in Alabama that he had something of an emotional reckoning and Tried to make amends in front of the Public. And so that that is part of his legacy. That story is being told and so that keeping the names of the buildings is part of that. And that it's okay. Well I'm not blacks. I can't speak to the black experience or the perceptions that black people may have. It's his apology. But from my experience and from the many conversations I've had with black students and students have other marshals backgrounds on campus students primarily. See His name being on the building as a threat or makes it very uncomfortable for students to enter campus even though he apologized to the community in his later years. That wasn't his later. Years and that apology doesn't absolve everything he did when he was governor when he was making these very harmful remarks that really damaged and terrorized a lot of people or lead to the continuing continuation terrorisation. So I personally don't believe that a apology. Near the end of his life totally absolves him everything he said before And I don't know if he had from my personal experience from what I've read about him in everything I don't know if he did enough work in the leader Lee years of his life to make up sort of what he had said earlier so sure whether or not the names of the buildings come off or whether or not there are plaques or or a more fulsome telling of George Wallace story around campus. Do you feel that at the very least your activism in that of your? Your colleagues has fostered a broader conversation among campaigner students. Talking about it among each other our white students talking about its students who are from Alabama. Who maybe it's possible before they got to. The university never heard anyone say critical word about George Wallace. I would hope so Do you think it's happening? I think it is. I think our work. We've been keeping it under wraps for a long time because we've been trying to figure out finances and funding and things of that nature when we started becoming bar public about her work and talking to more students about it. We've received very very positive feedback and a lot of suggestions on what we should include next on such as including the names of the native American communities that used to reside on ABC's land before it was occupied by white settlers. So we've received a lot of great feedback from Black White Asian students Hispanic students and so I hope to continue receiving that in the future and breeding conversation on campus and continuous initiative to not only include the markers but also programs and other implementation campus. I would continue the conversation. And what about those history professors they encouraging you as? Well yes yes. Faculty Advisory Board and. They've been extremely extremely supportive and encouraging of that's good to hear a stray. Apocryphal is a student activist on the campus. Of the University of Alabama. At Birmingham there are buildings and plaques all over the campus commemorating former governor George C Wallace segregationist governor of the civil rights era who proclaimed segregation now segregation forever. Trae I wanNA thank you for broadening the conversation to us. Thank you for me. Well coming up. We're going to ask some new voices. Continue the conversation about the legacy of George Wallace in what it means in.

Those They Left Behind: The Victims of Roy Melanson

"His cabin they stopped at a gas station to put some air in the leaky tire and they had to buy some more beer because they're all out and it continued on their driver car jerked so the two men the shows with that day no surprise turned out to be Chuck Mathews in Roy Melanson so chuck gone out of the car underneath the chassis and so that Iraq had put a hole in the oil pan so michelle offered to give them in a ride in her car when they made it to town got to her car matthews got into the backseat with oak and Melanson wrote up front with Michelle Michelle drove them back to gunnison asmir thieves bonded with Oak Michelle Cherif Melanson yes it was late afternoon they arrived back at the Columbine Bar Matthews was really surprised though because then he overheard Melanson asked Michelle if she could drive him a few more blocks to where he left his truck now he hadn't even mentioned a truck Matthews Matthews didn't think he had a truck I mean if he had a truck why they've been riding around in his old terrible junker were to prove in itself untrustworthy in absolutely breaking down and leaking air and stuff that's terrible so that's a good question where we take in my old junker but he didn't say anything in Melanson told Matthews he'd be back in a while and rode off in the passenger seat of Michelle's car so matthew went into the bar but he was confused and he decided he'd wait for Melanson to come back and maybe he could give him a ride home in his truck but when Melanson and returned by nine pm matthews called a friend to pick him up and he thought that would be the last seat here this whole thing but the next morning Melanson Grove Michelle Wallace's Redman Asta station wagon to the JC penney storing gunnison and he wrote a fraudulent check to purchase a dress shirt and pants Georgia and Megan Wallace Michelle's parents were back in Chicago thinking that everything was Fine Michelle was alive and well and would be back soon they were really happy that she was going to working as a photographer in North Carolina but September second came and went without a call from Michelle and she promised Maggie that she would call her that day so Maggie called the sheriff in Gunnison to report Michelle Missing Ecorse it had only been a couple of days she was an adult so the dispatcher told her not to worry her daughter and probably just decided to camp for another day or two forgot to collar but Maggie knew better she knew Michelle and she insisted that Michelle would never do that so she persisted and she actually got the sheriff's Department to talk to her and to search scofield part so the next one warning the under sheriff went to Michelle's apartment and saw that she had never returned from her trip so they figure that Michelle could have had an accident the rugged country so the undersheriff co the crested Butte Police Department an SM to look for her car they call them back that evening saying there's no sign ever car. The Maggie's calling repeatedly she's just worried sick a massive search was started by the gunnison sheriff the crested butte police department and the Civil Air Patrol rose also many volunteers helping in the search also Michelle's remained gave the police Michelle's hairbrush I glass says to hold his evidence and this would pay off much later not right away because we're in nineteen seventy four technology and advancements in science in a long way to go through certainly did very minimal right right so it was on September six when Chuck Mathews heard about a missing girl on the radio and we heard the description of Michelle in her dog along with her last known whereabouts he knew that she was a young woman that he had met with Melanson on August thirtieth but of course all he knows about Melanson is his first name was Roy so matthews called the sheriff's department and gave them a description of Michelle of her dog and of her Red Mazda wagon the last time he had seen her was outside of the Columbine bar she drove away with a man who the only numerous Roy and this really sounded bad this made the case sound a lot worse were here it should have been less seen with a man she really didn't know right she just met no one knew who roy was or afraid even his real name then the next day ranch called the sheriff's Department to report that he had shot and killed a dog on September fourth in his dog matched oak description he'd get the thanks caller which had a tag with shells name on it and other people called until the sheriff that they'd seen the dog wandering around in the area since August thirty first again bad news because Michelle and oak had been inseparable yes she's missing in her dog is dead so it's really looking like foul play frakes but a fora was contacted after Chuck Matthews told the police that Roy had told him he had been killing coyotes for a sheep rancher in Scholefield Park Spatafora told them that he had employed Roy and he knew his last name it was worry Melanson regarded her name mill food yeah yeah but of course Melanson had left the area he had arrived in Pueblo and Michelle's Mazda on August thirty first and he had spent the night with sally the fourteen year old and got one of her sisters to drive him to where he had parked the Mazda he told her that a friend had left it there for him to us so at this point I really have to question Sally's mother Lucille Burdens judgment here what the Hell's going on it's almost like she's prostituting her daughter you know well he's kind of staying at their house it's very weird and I don't know where the father was I know he was working it didn't ever come home and see what's going on it's really strange disturbing situation that's an understatement for this time though Melanson seemed to be doing much better financially than the last time the Burton girls had seen him he had new clothes new camping equipment and a really nice camera now salad use the camp took a picture of Melanson laying on the couch behind one of her friends yes oh what's this man doing in the House with these teenage girls laying on the couch it's also creepy Dick I just don't understand it we don't have any information or any any reasons why her mother true things the way she do now I mean what I've read about the case there was always just the idea that he was such a smooth talker in so convincing but to me nobody's that convincing that you're going to let him hang around your fourteen year old weird hat royals yeah Melanson didn't stay in Pueblo very long on September eighth in Cedar Falls Iowa when he was there he joined Michelle's camera backpack and sleeping bag than in elk city Iowa he made a guy named Thurman Wilder in a bar and the two started talking while they're told him that he was a heavy equipment raider looking for a job and Melanson told him that he had a friend in Pueblo who owned a construction company and he was sure that his friend would hire wilder I think he was just trying to get a ride there I guess he was always trying to get something from someone he was with the conman are always still have was in his white Cadillac and when they got to Amarillo Texas Melanson duck the Mazda and he ended up writing the rest of the trip with wilder in the Cadillac Hitt told wilder that his car needed repairs and he was taking it to shop and they'd pick it up on the way back then on September twelfth an anonymous caller are reported a suspicious white cadillac that was hanging around a high school and the Cadillac was pulled over and Melanson said that he and Wilder just waiting to pick up Sally Burton at school which is pretty creepy right there your suit is but when Nelson's driver's license was checked the police discovered that he was wanted for rape and Texas so both Melanson and wilder were arrested and wilder gave permission for his car to be searched and the these funds several different items belonging to Michelle Wallace in the Cadillac these things included her car registration her driver's license insurance discard and also some of her camping equipment so there's no explanation that he's going to be able to give for that wouldn't appear to be so melanson was searched police found his unused best ticket from gunnison to Pueblo and found Semis two keys and two point tickets sleeping bag in a backpack then one of the offices remembered the beyond the lookout for a red monster station wagon on by Michelle while so let's solve this crime didn't we well no not really into which is a long way to go with that the Pueblo detectives are pretty sharp they contacted gunnison and learned about the search for Michelle the Amarillo police found Michelle's car it was abandoned one block from a bar recalled the hard hat lounge now the car was searched but nothing was found that would have indicated foul play so nothing they give us evidence and nothing that would help them and find Michelle of course they interviewed Melanson and he finally did admit to spending time with the Burton's and having a relationship with the teenage Sally but he denied that he'd ever had sex with sally you know they would just hanging around 'cause they had so much in common together you're just good friends sure I'll grown men have fourteen year old girl says their friends interviewed sally she told him that she hadn't Melanson in July your family's cabin and she said that she did actually have sex with him so restores here I'm thinking I'm going to bully sally absolutely he had traumatized her quite a bit and so isn't the statutory rape yes should be but you know you're gonNA find here that he really gets away with a lot for long time it's really frustrating after extensive interviews Melanson insisted on speaking to the FBI and eventually he said that he did remember Eating Michelle he said he had a drink with her in a bar and she had left her dog tied up outside then he said he'd made up an excuse to borrow her car and she had led him so he just taken off in her car and it never seen her again not very believable story no bishop since he had all her things on his position Russian was stopped that anyway we'll we'll take a story so investigators suspected Nelson in Michelle's disappearance so in three other Texas rapes and Texas murder and then the police in Louisiana also wanted to question mallets about a series of murders in their state great so it looks like he's just done a lot of crimes that he's gotten away with Chuck Mathews was brought in and he was able to identify Melanson as the man Michelle's car when he last saw them after that detectives were convinced that they had Michelle's killer but without a body the prosecutor wouldn't charge him with murder so they were kind of step yeah I mean I know this is forty five years ago so things are different because we've done some cases where they've prosecute you didn't prosecuted successfully people with nobody well it certainly can be done but you need a lot of other evidence where it sounds like they got your amount the first thing you know you have to be able to prove the person's dad that's the first obstacle where you have to be able to maybe not prove but beyond a shadow of doubt so did now same thing to me or care so searchers though they continue to look on the ground and from the for Michele Maggie and George Wallace her parents held out hope that Michelle would be found alive of course but a new about Melanson story and they knew it was a lie she wouldn't have loaned her car to a stranger but unfortunately no evidence was found that Michelle had been killed or like I said even that she was dead Maggie she'd never see her daughter again that started to set in and she fell into a really deep depression she was crying every day and people said she just looked totally lost six weeks after Michelle had disappeared the Colorado detectives asks for her dental

Following Kamala Harris' Criticism, Joe Biden Defends His Civil Rights Record

"The exchange everybody is talking about from the debate last night is the exchange between joe biden and kamala harris in which she unfairly attacked him in the most cynical possible fashion she started off by suggesting that joe biden joe i really believe you're not a racist okay when somebody says i believe you're not a racist you know what's coming next which is all the reasons why she thinks he's a racist should that last night it was really cynical she then suggested that his lack of support for forced busing in nineteen seventy seven that this was reflective of a deep underlying racial animus that joe biden that cruel old man would have stopped little gung kamala from going to a school across town that's joe biden stood in front of that bus like george wallace at a school house door and stopped young comma from being able to attend the school of her dreams in berkeley california is bunch of nonsense cynical nonsense no one's still comma harass you know it's funny we're talking about forced busing forced busing was originally designed to achieve racial balance in the schools to achieve integration in the schools today there's more defacto segregation in american schools than there was back in the nineteen eighties so should we do forced busing now like kamla do you propose to forcibly bus tens of thousands of american school children across town to various schools both crappy a non crappy do you expect the parents won't then remove their kids from those schools do expect that will lead to a rise in charter schools or in private schools or home schooling what exactly proposing the beauty of comal harris does here is that she doesn't make policy proposal because if she did it would be unpopular instead she just implies that if you don't support a broad non non specific policy proposal that she apparently likes then you must have hated her when she was Child. She attacked Biden, Biden doesn't have a good response for it. i do not believe you are a racist and i agree with you when you commit yourself to the importance of finding common ground but i also believe and personal and i was actually very it was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two united states senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of grace in this country and his second so there she's already being dishonest that's not what your biden said which biden said is i didn't like these guys i had to negotiate with them 'cause i'm in the senate now come on harrison's a radical she's never negotiated with anybody on the other side is one of the more dislike members of the of the senate particularly like there's certain senators like cory booker who has friends on the other side of the aisle i'm not aware that kamala harris has any on the other side of the aisle she's one of those cynical radical players in the senate when she suggests that biden is fulsomely praising segregationist it's nonsense you'll hear biden respond to that in a moment then she gets to her real attack which is that biden was going to prevent her from going to school when she was six it was not only that but you also worked with them to oppose busing and you know there was a little girl in california who is part of the second class to integrate her public schools and she was bused to school every day and that little girl was me so i will tell you that on this subject it cannot be an intellectual debate among democrats we have to take it seriously we have to act swiftly as a torney general california i was very proud to put in place a requirement that all my special agents would wear body cameras and keep those cameras on Okay. shifts this right so she she gets a huge round of applause oh the first of all there are a couple of things worthy of note one she says in that clip we can't have an intellectual debate about this i thought that's what policy debates were were where we talk about the costs and benefits of particular proposals not the innate morality of the proposal not the implication that you are more moral than the other guy for proposing something that is completely unworkable which is what she's doing right here and then she doesn't shift to and that is why as attorney general and presidential candidate and senator i have always supported forced busing of children right that would be the logical corollary would for would be for her to say you know you didn't support for busing i do an enforced busing is the way we aren't as we ought to be forcing kids in public schools from different areas to get on buses and we ought to be bussing them forty five minutes here so that we can achieve my ideal racial balance that's our she goes notice instead she goes to and that's why i support body cameras that is the biggest non sequitur that is a huge first of all i support body but it's such a huge non-sequitur right you would expect her to say okay and that's why i support forced busing she doesn't so she's actually saying here's a policy that i may or may not support but if you don't support your racist because you're white and when i was young i could only go to school because of forced busing even though i can't really say whether i support forced busing now i like body cameras notice the it it's a clever move to biden has no response because he's on a democratic debate stage and everybody is pandering on this debate stage he can't really say to harris listen i want you and i always wanted people to be able to go to the best school possible because he didn't support school vouchers for example or the ability to move between communities on a balance area but not a fourth based on a voluntary basis to go to a better public school he's never believed in that so he can't actually say that then he can't say force busing was a bad policy not approved by the vast majority of americans because then she'll say are you saying that i shouldn't have been able to go to a better school when i was a kid right she's demagoguing the issue and there's no way for him of to get out of it the only thing he could do here is say listen if you're suggestion is that my opposition to a particular set of badly written policies in the nineteen seventies makes me racially insensitive you're knowing my entire history you say that you were a kid and you were affected by these policies guess who is fighting to open up civil rights in america this and eventually biden gets to this answer it just takes them too long and he doesn't look good doing it so here's a little bit more of the exchange You have been invoked your chance to restart. this characteristic my position across the board i did not praise racist that is not true number one number two if we want to have this campaign litigated who supports civil rights whether i did or not i'm happy to do that i was a public defender i didn't become a prosecutor i came out i left a good law firm to become a public defender when in fact when in fact when the fact my city was inflamed because of the sausage dr king number one number two as the u._s. as me as the vice president is states i worked with a man who in fact we worked very hard to see to it we don't with these issues in a major major way the fact is that in terms of bussing the busing i never would have been able to go to school the same exact way because it was a local decision made by your city council that's fine that's one of the things argued for that we should not be we should be break down these lines but so the bottom line here is look everything i've done in my career i ran because of civil rights i continue to think we have to make fundamental changes in civil rights and those civil rights by the way include not just african americans but the

'Green Book' suffers from Hollywood's Common 'Magical Negro' Problem

"I know we talked about green book Schorr did. But the Oscars are this Sunday. And this will be might win best picture Lord. No Roma please let Roma win. I think we have to talk about it. Because there's one scene that I cannot get out of my mind. Okay. Which one so it's the scene were Tony Villalonga. Who is the Italian American guy from the Bronx who's been hired to drive. Don, Shirley, this black musician, two gigs. Okay. So it's a scene where Tony saves dawn from a bunch of unruly racist at a bar. I mean, I can imagine. What bothered you about that? But why bother you? This scene is meant to teach the audience that the guys that are beating up Don are the real racists. And Tony is kind of like a milk toast racist. He's not that bad of a racist. He's only ever called Don a couple of names behind his back and kind to face and the whole movie up into this point has given you the impression that Tony doesn't like black people. But the moment the movie takes you into the scene in the bar. You understand actually these are the real racist because they're capable of physical violence against someone just because they're black and Tony he's not really a bad guy after all a little bit of needing. He needs a little bit of coaxing. But you know, what he's actually on the right side of things, and you can bring him back over to the right side to the good side of history. And it's inferior eating it's infuriating Wesley. The idea that racism is only bad if it escalates into physical violence, and that's the tiny little microaggressions things that dehumanize. Is and demoralize and stereotype aren't actually really bad types of racism after all, so maybe they get a pass. Right. It feels like a very sanitize seen about racial mix that's designed specifically to make audiences fill better about themselves, and is amazing that you're bringing this up on the weekend of the Academy Awards. Yes. These same Academy Awards in which green book is nominated for five Oscars and is likely to win two or three including picture. Yeah. And you know, it's in company with movies like star is born in the favorite and vice about Dick Cheney, and of course, black klansman and Black Panther, right? Boy, if green book does win it'll be a really good company with the best picture winners of the last thirty years specifically when it comes to films about race, right? I just think America is obsessed with this sort of racial healing fantasy where there is a work that like being near. A black person can do to rehabilitate prejudice people and all that rubbing up against yelling at friction tension touching. Hugging. Driving will bring him to the light. Right. It's its own trope. Yeah. Right. What other films in the past have done this? What are you thinking about? I don't know. I mean, if we're just staying in the in the thirty year window, something like Forrest Gump. Ninety four win best picture ninety five the story of the very simple man name. Forrest Gump mom, always said life was lack of box chocolates sits on a bench and start just talking to anybody who sits down next to him about his his life. Never know what you're going to get. He winds up befriending. This other guy named Bubba Goodall. Bubba good day. You can catch pounds. Shrimp. Shrimp is the fruit of deceit. You can vote ball broad bike it so both have the same IQ. But the point is that force is the person on the journey and a person like Bubba is another step along the way. So one of which puts them on campus when George Wallace's denouncing the integration of university of Alabama. Right. And part of that sequence when Vivian Malone was one of the new black students drops her notebook on the way inside the school, the visual effects, people make it. So that forced picks up the notebook enhance it to Vivian. And it's just weird to me. Like, you realize like that like the movies about forest, not Vivian who? I would say has a much more interesting American story to tell. I country is all about and it isn't the forest gets made a better person because of black people. But it is the forest gets to look scans or not even see a lot of the problems in this country, all of which are shoulder by Jenny who played by Robin rate who is near some Black Panthers who do nothing when she's beaten up by her white piece boyfriend, the racial politics. This movie are crazy anyway, all the politics in this movie to be fair are crazy, but they all sort of benefit for his Gump the fantasy here, of course, if you're good enough and simple enough, America's racial problems can be hailed give this movie a best picture Oscar. Okay. I mean, what else crash best picture winner a two thousand six Lord. A movie. So frightening. The Geno worth refuses to watch it facts facts, only, basically, it's one of these race and racism are driving. Everybody in Los Angeles out of their minds, the Persians the Mexicans the white people the black people, but the thing that really takes me out. His you have all of these different people of different races all being nasty to each other because of race, but guess who the redeemed characters are in this movie. Oh my God. I don't even want to know, Sandra. Bullock, of course, like the second biggest racist in the movie, she gets carjacked, by ludicrous and Lorenzo Tate. Maybe I'm Alexis really tough. My think it'd be best. If you just went upstairs random, wait for them to break in. I just had a gun pointed in my favorite lower. Your voice was my fault. Because I knew it was going to happen. But the white person's he's two black men walking towards her. And she turns and walks in the other direction. She's a racist. Right. Well, I. Got scared, and I didn't say anything attend seconds later. I had a gun in my face. Now. I am telling you you're a Migo in. There is going to sell are key to one of his homes and miss time. It'd be really fucking great. If you acted like you actually gave us shit. And then what happens? She falls down the steps on a lot of pain killers or something. And decides at her Mexican-made Maria is her new best friend. I assume area wants to go home. But you know, we don't know 'cause movies out about Maria. It's about Sandra Bullock, but the real star that movie is Matt Dillon racists cop. Matt Dillon feels up Tandy Newton at a traffic doesn't like black people, but certainly put his hands all over a black woman. So she gets into a horrible car crash cars on fire cast who comes in to save the day. Hear me permissible be your. To get an extinguisher. Good that fire. Best supporting actor nomination for that gentleman. Okay. I'll get you out not Dylan approves he's not a racist because he's capable of saving some black person's life. Even after he's violated it and then driving miss daisy. Of this sort of problem. And it wins. Best picture nineteen ninety came out in eighty nine huge hit. Yeah. Better movie than you think. Actually, because I think it understands the thing that you and I are talking about right? There is something inherently impossible about black people and white people being friends at least, according to the way, the country is set up to like have both those friends be equal in the friendship. So it is a story of this old Jewish woman. Daisy were them. Sorry. This old named daisy were than related I hope. hope Not. not. Our son bully hires Hoke Morgan Freeman to drive her. And home nowhere else.

The case prompted all kinds of speculation about the motivations that could be behind it. Here's what a talk radio host, Michael Savage, had to say is a high probability that the whole thing is set up as a false flag to gain sympathy for the Democrats to get our minds off the hordes of illegal aliens approaching southern boarding that kind of talk echoes back to another era in American history when bombs were tool of political intimidation. And peers Debbie Elliott reports in the nineteen fifties and sixties Birmingham. Alabama was known by another name bombing ham bombing ham, Alabama, be OEM. Be Jeff Jrue grew up on a street called dynamite hill. Because so many black families were bombed for moving into the predominantly white neighborhood. It would push the furniture off the floor break, the windows, and and scare us all to death. So terrorism is nothing new, but this part of Birmingham, Alabama. We experienced person there were more than three dozen unsolved racially motivated bombings in Birmingham during the civil rights era, mostly houses, and churches, and drew says there was a pattern after the attacks. Authorities would accuse victims of planting the bombs most inhumane thing you could you could think of who would bomb their own house, but that rumor was widely circulated in white circles says Diane mcchord or who wrote a book about the Birmingham civil rights movement. Understood motive was that blacks were bonding their own churches and buildings in order to raise money and get publicity for the movement. She says it was repeated publicly by politicians, including Alabama's segregationist governor. Owner George Wallace other common theories were that the bombings were ordered by Martin Luther King junior were part of a communist plot orchestrated by the FBI. It was repeated so often I mean, I grew up hearing this from my father, you know, I think they started believing it and part of the reason they were able to believe it was that until the sixteenth street.

For instance, what happened in Mississippi during freedom summer in nineteen sixty four free of the civil rights workers were kidnapped by sheriff. Posse of clansman and murdered because the bodies weren't found. Mississippi officials denied the segregation is could have done this car and said first of all they they said there was a hoax Senator James even told that to the president on the phone.

Branch says polarizing times then and now lead to an ideological climate where conspiracy theories thrive it's a low point for the country says democratic Senator Doug Jones about Alabama. He's a former US attorney who prosecuted the Birmingham church bombers. We are living in a time. Where words matter just like they did back in the sixties. There were so many things that happen then based on the empowerment that public officials like George Wallace gave do people not understand what it takes to kind of tone down the rhetoric to make sure that things like this don't happen with some deranged fool out there who wants to try to to hurt people thinking that he's got the okay to do it federal officials declined to talk about potential political motivations.

"You make it as simple as possible. Make it as simple and you notice us a lot of simple words. And sometimes I was listening to Dennis Miller and go, fuck, is he talking about? So yeah, but now feel like, do I need to know those addiction is not as good as it should be. So that's why I want to go back to school second, I think I heard a quote from you somewhere where you said that your parents told you that life is shit sandwich. And did you hear that told me that learn everything? You can make all the bread that you can because life is like a sheet sandwich and the more bread you have the less just you gotta eat dude. What did you hear me say that? Cool. I remember that I did say that it that just came to me that. Because I listened when you talk, you know, and it is so cool because very seldom I said that I'm not in the right place because I never use. I say, crap sandwich before. I thank you so much because I remember when I heard that I thought it was pretty cool because it's it's, it's about learning. The bread is learning learning, and I think that that's kind of what I hope to do with the show is to give more. Yeah, let's shit you gotta eat. Don't ever forget that. Learn everything.

"I feel like you can not old enough to work in all the way. Go ahead. I felt like you could figure out everything from country because I worked in an old age home in Israel. And then I worked in an old age home here in America, and I even worked a little bit in an old age home in the UK, but not for very long just for a day or two, but but actually spending time in these places in Israel and in America that you can learn a lot from country by how they treat their old people. And we do not treat our old people will do that is so good. What a great point there. The people that help build a country, and once they get people will. I mean, not say, I'm touched now because old people get as nobody wants to help them even family members. But. It's kind of like me. I will take every dime of my social security money. That's put it in a system, and I'm going back and I think the government should take care. People's health wise should be matter of fact, I should be some of your greatest days in life. Government should take care of you. Yeah, and the best way I had a joke at one point where I was talking about collecting antiques and entities collectibles and be like if you have a lunchbox and you have a person at some point in your life, you look at the person as an American. You go, wow, that person's worth way more than this is ten lunch bucks. But if you fast forward seventy years, that lunchbox becomes really worth a lot. Everybody wants that is collectible, that old person, nobody wants him. Trying to get rid of them. It's backwards. People become less collectible is. So in that way, I do think maybe this country has the government. They deserve. Maybe it's maybe it's the shakeup and the wake up that they need. Sometimes we think that maybe this is good that we have this guy office wake up, shake up that we need a lot of happen, especially for the women. You know, we're not for Trump. We'll grabbing the peop- the private apart probably wouldn't have all these ladies coming out saying, I was sexually abused, assaulted, whatever. So you you, you may be right and that you are right, and and some ways that maybe we deserve this right now and this time one is going to be for the better. I know that I remember hearing something about, like how. The idea of God is that God is light. And if God is pure light in the whole world is God. Then how is their darkness and says that God does kindness by creating darkness so that we seek light because he knows sometimes you need the darkness to to find the light, the lighter, too immature. That's how I feel about it. And that's the right way. You just described that perfectly and we wanna thank you this day. America has learned from you. You have been wonderful. I've learned a lot from you today, and I wanna thank you so much for the. Opportunity to learn from you today. And I'm sure he'll listen to us. Learn on George Wallace signing off on more, but. You want to do the last one. I'll do the last one. Sometimes you got to show without tension. Sometime you gotta get off stage. You know, you can't do let it go. So what's that last one is number one. If in a state state you do not hear the noise of conflict. Be sure that freedom is not there. Well, that just speaks exactly exactly what took them backwards because I knew would come back to. We already answered all of the quest era. Brilliant, man, I appreciate you might school. You know, I told you that before the smartest person in the world. Well, so you plenty smart to me. I, I enjoyed talking to learn more. I would like to go back to school. I really this. This is something that's. I grew up in marketing and advertising. I was taught back in the day. Never speak what people understand. You always speak where they don't misunderstand..
