Like law and order and they're coming after those franchises in that kind of stuff because they say they, they glorify the police and okay anybody who's ever watched law and order. knows. That's not true I. Mean you've had cops with drug issues? You've had cops. You know that have been raped. You've cops that have been kicked off the force you've had you know.

No, it's not like the the history is still there. It's erasing a monument to. Dumb Shit like like. Why do you have a statue of a confederate general in your town centre? Here's a good years ago, so I'm part of obviously lots of the German community and all of them were talking about how the differences are between keeping. AUSCHWITZ UP AS A. Memorial versus bringing like having generally on a statue right one is to remind people of the atrocities that occurred who they are not cheering are heralding. There's nothing to that right where I think the difference is the lady's confederate edges. That they're you know people view them as heroes? Correct there? It's not you're not you know the the things that. The well and there's a difference between like an Auschwitz or like the Gettysburg cemetery or something like that. See any German statues of Heiner hemlock exactly. Yeah, there's yeah, there's yeah. There's no statues to Himmler or Hitler or anything like that floating around. You know it's it..

"Back next week on Monday might McConnell sleeping in a little bit for LeBron instead of three twenty four ten. Yeah. Baby. I'm well rested. Let me tell you Jimmy you came across a list of the fattest states in America, the fattest states in America. Well, we have the ten fattest states in America, and it's uncanny. How any negative? Listing of states in America. It could be the worst education. It could be the worst breath that could be. Probably the worst drivers haven't seen that holistic list seen part of it. The worst everything it seems like they just change positions. But Mississippi and West Virginia are always wanted to the neighboring states, Mississippi, West Virginia. And Jimmy you said that the list of the most obese states guarantee Mississippi's in there and West Virginia, and they are one and two on this one. I've been in West Virginia. I've had good times in West Virginia. They didn't seem any fatter than anywhere else. I've been. Okay. Arkansas a bluegrass looks like your number four Mississippi was Virginia. Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee. Now. We're getting into the neighbors. You know what? I mean. Ohio did not make the list of the top ten don't believe Indiana did either that Louisiana L Louisiana. We'll get the rest of the list here momentarily, but it's uncanny. In matter what the list is, you know, pours education porous this Mississippi, West Virginia. Ever spent much time in Mississippi. That was spent much time in Alabama. Eventually when it gets all fifty states. That's a goal in the forties somewhere forty-three states have been two and a couple of years ago. I was in Florida, and I never somehow I've never been Alabama. I've been in every state around Alabama. But I never got to Alabama. So I made it a point we drove one day. We're at a at a wedding in Destin and nothing going on for day. And I said, you know, what if you're this close to Alabama? You gotta go, and I'm sure I'll get there some other times another year. But if you're that close, you gotta go so hopped in the car and drove to floor Obama floor. Obama is a really big bar on the beach. So I guess straddles Florida and Obama therefore floor Obama. An interesting place. They have this one. Maybe it's the main room has lie. Why ropes like clothesline hanging up across the whole room. And there are more bras stretched over that hundreds hundreds of women's bras. And I guess they have concerts on the beach and whatnot. It's. It's a happening place. So that's my one trip to Alabama. That's all I got there. And what we have the rest of the list here that states, Mississippi, West, Virginia, Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee, Louisiana, Alabama, South Carolina. Oklahoma and Texas really gets Texas prizes. Me. We did not in Ohio crack this up ten, but we're number twelve Indiana's number eleven. About here. The slimmest states the number one. Well, we'll go. The other way Hawaii is number. Forty eight Utah is number forty nine in Colorado is fifty. Seems to me people. I know who like to be healthy have moved to boulder. I like the outdoors. I'm moving to boulder. I'm moving to Denver. Yeah. Hawaii. I'm well. I guess I think if you're in a state where you can be outside most of the year round, you shouldn't be fat so Alabama. You can get out you can walk in January and do the same Louisiana can do the same in Mississippi in a lot of Texas, not all of Texas, but we're number twelve Indiana's number eleven and k y you did very much cracked the top ten came in at number four. So there's your numbers. Congratulations. You know, in these partisan times people always say it's never been as partisan as it is right now. But trying to find this book, I read an interview with this woman probably a month ago. She's a book out about when they used to Duke it out in the congress. It's called something like, you know, blood in the halls of congress or something, and I can't find the name of the book. In fact, if you know what it is. I'll ask you to inform me because I want to get the book, and I'd like to get her on while it's still relatively new. But it was about how they used to come to blows in congress, and certainly coming up to say pre-civil war and a lot of the slave state Free State's and legislation that would come up that would impact one over the other and they become the blows. And sometimes it would be like a gang a gang of southern congressmen versus a gang of northern congressmen. And they would Duke it out right there in the chambers. People say, well, we've never been more divided than we are shut up. We've been more divided than this plenty of times in the past and just things you stumbled upon when you're online, what is considered to be the greatest speech ever delivered. Word by an American. Generally, the Gettysburg address probably can't even think of another one, but the Gettysburg address is considered the greatest speech ever delivered. But back then you had newspapers that were much more partisan than they are today. They were either die hard Republican diehard, democrat, whatever and the Chicago times review, the Gettysburg address November twenty third eighteen sixty three and accused Lincoln of ignorant rudeness, Borish nece vulgarity and said, he included political partisanship in his Gettysburg speech. And they pan them for suggesting all meta created equal because you have the three fifths compromise going on at the time. Or just previously. The nothing could have been more inappropriate than to have invited. The prince of jokers old Abe to be present. At the consecration of the Gettysburg cemetery wrote another paper November twenty fourth but having been invited. It was hoped by his apologists. He would at least refrain from his clownish jokes about standing over the new made graves of thousands of men who had been slain in a recent battle and on from there if you can pay on the Gettysburg address that's a nation divided right there. And some of the the one was. Chicago paper, it's his his home state. They weren't wild about them. Either. Jack's got a theory on people being fat, Jack. What is that theory? Yeah. Hey, Mike, happy thanksgiving. We're talking about consuming food. I I really think the theory is I think the states that have the larger people, I think they have more buffet bars. Have you been a bar and watch the eating habits of some people where they go up with like three plates. They come back. They're completely full. And then they go back about three times with the same amount of food each time. They come back. It's amazing. How much people can consume. If you think about it. We have fewer buffets be, and I think that we have fewer buffets period than we used to have a very smorgasbords buffets. These name. Well, I think regular portions got so big and restaurants that the buffets got run out of business. Hey, listen. I I am going to have it re reader. And I I read that immoral to cabinets, you know, all these houses that was being built the average cabinet was only ten inches in depth. And so. Had to be eight inches to be able to fit into the cabinet nowadays. A cabinet is up to twelve inches and the plate has gotten bigger. And so over the course of a year that two inches. I forget how many pounds of food is this. This is a fact. I read it in like popular sites or something. Here's here's my make your point a lot of people have had grandma's China passed down to them, and it's the same size plate. We have today. But how many times? And most China. We do it twice a year still has to go in the cabinet. That means that's how big plates were. Then that's what they means. Well, I dunno torpedoes your entire theory blows it out of the water. Some scientists, you know, some guy from real I I don't know. I'll tell you brother enjoy day. Thanks. Yeah. Used to have Rummy David's buffet was up there that went out of business smorgasbord it used to be you'd have a dietician on the show like this. And I'll say it was the nineteen eighties. People weren't as big in the nineteen eighties. As far as how much you're supposed to eat. They used to say think inside thick in terms of a reasonable restaurant portion because they didn't use to be the portions. They are. Now, I went to I think. What's this over here? Cheesecake factory haven't been there in awhile. But. The an appetizer that I ordered there. It was it made it sound like it was sliders like white castle sized sliders, and you've got full-size hamburgers. I forget if it was two or three they were like two big hamburgers. As an appetizer. Other words, what you're supposed to eat before you really eight was two full size hamburgers. And I think I'm saying they were bigger than quarter Pounder. They were huge. In most places at restaurants, you go to today, you'd be fine.

We people are celebrating the one hundred fifty fifth anniversary of Lincoln's Gettysburg address something he gave on the newly the new the then new national cemetery, which I believe was the first national cemetery just months after the after the battle of Gettysburg. So the better Gettysburg was the second and third first second and third of July eighteen sixty three it's November nineteenth eighteen sixty three and Lincoln is there. But I think before you we you start. Talking about it. I always have fascinated that in Lincoln's invitation to the dedication of the Gettysburg cemetery was almost an afterthought by the people who organized it my cracked. Yeah. That's right. Lincoln was kind of invited. Because of course, he was president. But they didn't really expect much of them. They just hoped he showed up and maybe could deliver a few remarks, which is exactly what he did two hundred seventy two words to be exact, correct. Probably the most eloquent two hundred seventy two words never spoken. Absolutely. So first of all tell the listeners a little bit about what you do. I interviewed you for a story that will be in the examiner tomorrow, celebrating the one hundred and fifty fifth anniversary of the Gettysburg address.

So if I drop off presents for him to brass like that he probably probably wouldn't do that. No. We had some real guys that were you know, archers. Wow. Wow. Nothing. Did they do that outside though? We rent sell your inside for that. While we were outside. Wow. Well, here's the first big history. You just mentioned to me before we get started about the one hundred and fifty fifth of the Gettysburg address. Contrast, November nineteenth. But today was the day one hundred and fifty five years ago that ABRAHAM LINCOLN arrived in Gettysburg prior to the big ceremony the dedication of the of the cemetery. There was taking place. For the soldiers that were were killed and a lot of people again, we were divided nation. Then you're of course, is not. Yes, they're not all that far from what was known, then and still kind of as the Mason Dixon line. So we were a little bit north having spent time in Gettysburg, it's amazing to walk the streets and still see bullet holes building, that's crazy. And so just to get to the point. There was a lawyer named David wills who is in town who was the head of the commission for the ceremony to dedicate the Gettysburg cemetery. The featured speaker was Edward Everett who was president of Columbia University at the time the band spoke for two hours, how holies by heart heart. Yes, really he memorized. What was it was an afterthought to bring Lincoln? They're all it'd be nice to have the president make a few. Really? Yes. Why he did not write a prior to travelling there? Yes. He did. Actually, he did he started. He's how many copies of the speech day. We talked about this little bit of a memory. Yeah. And you were surprised when I told you this at how many copies are there? But there are five copies say there are five known copy. Or are they are in are they in private hands or the mar-? There's one at the ABRAHAM LINCOLN library and museum in Springfield, which is spectacular. But they're they're having some issues, man. I keep reading stuff about like money in Leon's hat and now the has. I think Rick Pearson is going to have someone on this morning from the music. Oh, that's but anyway, Lincoln arrives one hundred and fifty five years ago today in Gettysburg stated David wills house and then on the nineteenth. Went to dedicate the similar how pretty cool that in my opinion. Just me, that's the greatest American speech. There is one hundred and fifty five fifty five three three. Older than me. Covering it. Crawl all the way down in Chicago public libraries at Tribune addition of reporting on the Gettysburg address how it's incredible how I wouldn't even think about that. That's pretty cool. Is it a front cover thing? Or was it about deals okay page. It was not a huge headline, but it was down on the front page, and what's interesting to read newspaper accounts from back. Then was that they in parentheses will say what was the reaction from a crowd. There was there was some applause, but it confused everybody that he sat down after two minutes after Edward Everett spoke for two. That's crazy. Wow. Well, speaking of leaking now, let me tell you this thanksgiving, of course, being this Thursday. There was a proclamation in seventeen seventy seven. But it was it's really been an annual tradition since eighteen sixty three when during the civil war president Lincoln proclaimed a national day of thanksgiving and praise to to our father who dwell in the heavens. So to be celebrated on Thursday, November twenty six is a federal public holiday in the US. It's obviously one.

"Seemed to be. If not perfect. At least trustworthy. I believe that begin to began to fall apart and that's happened flowed. But the the key factor here, I believe, and I'm in no way in a communist as my accountant will tell you. But I believe that beginning in the late nineteen eighties when household income and wages began to stagnate, you lost that sp- more open hearted spirit than characterize the middle of the reform movements of the middle of the nineteen sixties that impart been made possible by the fact that more people in the middle and working classes felt secure because it was a remarkable period of prosperity that period prosperity has become more unequal in our own time. So if you're doing well, you're probably doing better if you're not doing well, you're increasingly seeing the ladders to the middle class. Either becoming awfully rickety or going away altogether. You know, many people thinking about the current state of government are blaming Donald Trump for a great deal that. But you say there are leaders and other political figures who been similar to Trump who were they and how did the country responded the time? Yeah, I think from in the current climate is both a cause and effect of voices. We were just talking about. I think that he's most like Andrew Johnson, unfortunately, fellow Tennessee and of mine who was a democrat had gone on the ticket with ABRAHAM, LINCOLN AT sixty four to widen the appeal of the Republican party in that wartime election. Johnson reverted to form after Ford's theatre. He opposed the fourteenth and fifteenth amendments, critical reconstruction amendments about equal protection and African American male suffrage EV towed important civil rights legislation. He vetoed the Friedman's bureau, an attempt to help the recently emancipated slaves to try to bring them more into the mainstream Johnson created a constitutional crisis by essentially trying to if not, undo, at least for close the fullest expression of the implications of the verdict of the civil war, which was a widening sense of equality, Johnson and Washington on Washington's birthday team sixty six. He gave this. I talk about it some length in the book. He gave this rambling self absorbed crowd bathing speech in Washington, talking about how the elites were all against him. And there were conspiracies against him. It sounds somewhat familiar, doesn't it? It's the other. The other twentieth century figures that I think are forerunners of where we are Huey long in the nineteen thirties, Charles Coughlin, the radio priests in the nineteen thirties, strong Thurman, the Dixie crat nominee in nineteen forty eight, George Wallace, the Alabama governor who won thirteen and a half percent of the popular vote in nineteen sixty eight carried four or five states. It was a big moment and Richard rove ear. You know, the great New Yorker correspondent in Washington, wrote a good book about McCarthy, Joe McCarthy in those. Guy in the late nineteen, fifties, and reading that book and thinking about McCarthy that may be the non-presidential best for runner. And of course, in the way the God sometimes does these things both Joe McCarthy and Donald Trump had the same lawyer as you know, ROY Cohn who always advises clients to fight no matter what the facts were because the public, he believed enjoyed the combat more than they cared about the underlying substance. Hugh right in book people who have be president had changed hitting the office. Now, do you see that possibility here with Donald Trump or give us an idea of who you think changed? The most is a wonderful question because it goes to something that I think all of us find in our own lives. When you reach a certain point, you know, can you are you? Are you ossified calcified into the same person or or can reason and experience? And if you're inclined that way revelation to some extent, Ken that change you? I think the of the Trump part I I, I have hope because I have, oh, there is almost no evidence to support that hope evil talk. About as we all know the pivot that might becoming at various points. There's been no pivot. If anything he's become more like himself. I was fascinated by one of the most astute things ever said about the American presidency was said by Michelle Obama in two thousand sixteen when she said the presidency doesn't change who you are. It reveals who you are, and it's a wonderful insight. I agree with about eighty percent of it because the other twenty percent is you can't change Jack Kennedy, learned how to govern better from the bay of pigs. So the Cuban missile crisis, Harry, Truman who came from a who was in no way. A friend of civil rights found the L his elevation to the presidency on that tragic April twelfth, nineteen, forty five to be a moment where that that did transform it. He began to see that he was. President of all the people. He's no longer just a senator from Missouri that was critical. Same thing happened to Lyndon Johnson. It's one of the great chapters of personal transformation as you exact, you know, in the nineteen fifties. He was no friend as well rights. Johnson people just beat that, but it's not particularly convincing. But even when he was vice president, he began to see things whole and not in sexual terms. He gave his speech. Can you imagine having to go to Gettysburg and give speech talk about intimidation. He gave a speech at the Gettysburg cemetery at Memorial Day nineteen sixty three. That's in the book and a very interesting speech about if you were a black man and you were being told patience, you would be saying have been patient for a century very forward leaning then on on the after the evening of November. Second nineteen sixty three. When he becomes president after the assassination of JFK, he decides right then in almost a mystical way that he's not going to change any of the civil rights. Build the Kennedys put forward and. It was a case, I think. Looking at it psychologically politically everything else. There was every political motivation to not push as hard as he pushed, at least when he pushed, there were advisors telling him, wait until after the sixty four election, rumor the reason Kennedy and Johnson, we're in Texas that day was because there was a split the Texas Democratic Party conservatives who or or attached to John Conley and the liberal populist wing in Texas that were attached to Ralph Yarborough parenthetically, you remember who is challenging or on the other side of the ticket was George H W Bush who is very attractive Republican, and the Johnson was deeply terrified politically that they might lose that seat. If there was a big gold water wave and they didn't know at that point, there wouldn't be one and remember John tower just because at one Johnson. So the for Lyndon Johnson, the idea there'd
