"green mountain college" Discussed on Breaking Green Ceilings

"So thank you so much again Elena for spending time with us on breaking green ceilings really appreciated. So we're here today to talk to you about your journey in pursuing a degree in Zoology and in particular your research interest in the gender dimensions of urban push me trafficking which should be a very interesting conversation and I'd like us to start from someone the beginning and that is if you could tell us how did you develop your passion for the natural environments? Yeah, so I'm originally from Michigan. I've grown up in Michigan and I spent most of my childhood going to the Detroit Zoo like my family had a membership and that's where I spend like all my Summers would just be going to the same with my grandparents and I used to keep like this dinky little composition notebook and I would just fill it with animal facts. So it's always just been like a huge passion for me with wildlife and with my own pets at home. So it's just kind of been a part of me for as long Remember really is there a specific or specific exhibits that you enjoyed? I love anteaters. I really love animals with weird noses. I have no wage. But yeah, I was just thinking of all the animals with weird noses Nas elephant yet opens artworks links long noses salamanders. Yes. There's just like smushed their to their faces, right? Yeah funny interesting fact so long and I guess that's how you decided that you wanted to pursue a degree in Zoology then yeah. Yeah. So just having that I ever run from like my high school or life my town you went to Michigan State or you went somewhere else in Michigan and I knew Michigan state had a really great zoology program, so I ended up going there and I really enjoyed it. And so how did you suck? Moving from high school system to a college system can be quite daunting. I know it was for me as a foreign student. How was that experience for you transitioning? So, I had actually didn't go to MSU for my freshman year because I was kind of a Wanderer and I wanted to try different like go to a different state and try something new. So I spent my freshman year in Vermont a small College called Green Mountain College and I went there for a year and we're studying animal conservation and care. They're so from my high school where I had two thousand people. I went to a school that had four hundred people and then when I transferred to State they had fifty thousand. So yeah, it was very extremes. Yeah, very huge extremes. I think it was awful difficult. Just trying to find like my people in my community, but being able to figure that out kind of quickly, I think was really helpful for me and being able to make that transition, right and what time Mean by your people so finding people who like share the same interests as me or have like the same goals within their life and like what they wanted to do was really impactful. So the summer before I transferred to Michigan State, I did a Wildlife Rehabilitation internship and I met some of my very close friends that I'm still friends with today. And that was about two years ago that I meant that we were still really really close because of that. Yeah, that's a really great way to transition now into a bigger Community I guess and I was really intimidated when I was looking for black colleges and universities. I ended up going to a small liberal arts college and I think we were maybe like 300 to 400 students and it felt very comfortable cuz I guess you know everyone sometimes that can feel uncomfortable too because everyone knows you yeah, especially for an introvert so and then just thinking about how massive em Who is and other similar institutions it may feel like you're just a cow like a cattle station one. That's a bad analogy because yeah, cuz it's a good implications of getting slaughtered in-depth what not. I mean, it just feels like yeah really overwhelming. So then how does it work in terms of determining? What courses you should be taking in order to fulfill the requirements for the degree? And do you have like somebody who guides you through that? So I was really lucky when I transferred because I was off first student from my previous college to transfer to Michigan State and I was you honestly didn't really know what to do. So they just kind of accepted all my credits and then if I said something qualified, they just accepted it was really nice. Yeah. It was really nice and my degree is pretty flexible because with in Zoology you take like the basic science classes and then at State you have a dog Frustration and my concentration is very very flexible. There's not that many courses. So it's helped me a lot with my research is where I'll find like a gap in my knowledge or something and I'm able to take classes that still count towards my degree in some capacity.

"green mountain college" Discussed on The Dave Gram Show on WDEV

"To the day. Bram show what one of the things we've been following on the Dave Ramsey show here in recent months has been the trials and tribulations of Marlboro College much loved a small school down in the southern in part of Vermont Vermont as seen three small liberal arts colleges closed this year Green Mountain College in Poland Ecologist Saint Joseph in Rutland southern a college in Benetton Southern Vermont Colleges announced. I think the other day. They're looking at selling Their campus to a private. Prep School from New Hampshire. So we'll have to follow Figure out whether the that private prep school from New Hampshire is moving lot lock stock and barrel to to Bennington. Or what's what's going on there but We want to focus on Marlborough today in particular because we have a guest. Who's been on the show now? This is the third time third. Time's The charm. Maybe Dick Sonic Richard. Sonic is the he has been around to Vermont public life for a long time. Of course he was the Commissioner of the Department of Public Service. I believe at one point. He was longtime chair of the Vermont. Vermont Public Service Board So knows a lot about deregulation and Then it's been in a private law practice in my period for a number of years and also so is the chair of the Marlborough College Board of Trustees and He's GonNa Phyllis in on the latest doings at that. Campus down in down near Brattleboro just west of Brattleboro up in the hills there Good morning addict saw. Thanks for coming in good morning. Thank you excuse. Me and Wanted to check in with you. Just fill us in the big news from Marmer. This week is what it's very big news. Marlboro will change. It will move off. Its campus and become the Marlboro Institute of Liberal Arts and Interdisciplinary Studies at Emerson College College in Boston in Boston. Yes Emerson is known for for its are sand communications and so on in that area but it also has an end to pendant institute which teaches Liberal Arts and interdisciplinary studies that exists now. But it's a small part of Persson. We will make it a a big part because our faculty are tenured faculty and our Tenure Track Faculty will all be calm faculty at Emerson if they wished to and our students will move over also to Emerson. And we're we're delighted in this way out of what was a tough situation financially for US similar blur to the colleges that you were reciting had folded already From what I recall Marlboro has stronger down at than other colleges didn't it. Yes yes. We had an endowment have an endowment But we were about to get have to slice way into it closed close to twenty percent We were going to have to apply toward this year's budget and it would decrease the endowment down pretty fast asked like over probably two years. We probably only have enough left to close out the campus. Teach the students who were there and Grant severed staff everybody and it just was a it was a bad prospect so the future projections were not good and you decided to get ahead of it. And and work out this deal with Marlboro Co with Emerson College Emerson College actually Interesting School It's in the Back Bay in Boston right. If I recall correctly we had somebody actually graduated alumnus ever college as a guest on the show earlier this week. The comedian Steven Wright Join me for a while. And he's a very funny guy and was actually telling me stories about when he was painting the dorms. I guess. He had a job painting the dormitories at At Emerson College and they may have been enough a fuel for his later joke about when he would say It's a small world but I wouldn't want to paint it and He I asked Evita had some practical learning experience with a paintbrush. And sure enough. That's that's where he got it. Apparently and so that was A humorous little exchanged by the way Stephen Rate of course has got to be appearing at the flame. The're next Friday evening up in Burlington in and I'm sure that'll be a terrific show is very funny. Clever gentleman and has been Around the national comedy scene for a long time Emerson is produced a number of a number of folks here in Vermont and the media in the broadcast field especially and And not just all over the country so they do have quite a name in as a as a school for the arts for for Media Studies and communications as as you mentioned and now they would expand their into a more Stronger traditional liberal arts program a gathering in things like what English and history and et Cetera. Yes l. sure Emerson Emerson's well known in a particularly in the arts and it is a dynamic place with a wonderful president event who is mainly Pelton who has expanded it. It is very popular school. It has sound financials and We and is much larger than Marlboro. So we felt that it would. It made a lot of sense once. The opportunity came up to do this rather than just kind of ride our own situation down Actually that's an interesting question. Marvel has about two hundred students at home and what the student bodies like it Everson. So we're three thousand. Wow Okay so that is that is a much larger institution institution Of course Mar is still three thousand even small by Higher Ed Standards Having of course I went to Umass amherst for Undergrad. Averages was something like twenty eight thousand at the time and and And then know Ohio State for a master's degree and that was I think the largest single university campus in in the country. So I kinda stuck with the big places I don't know why exactly but anyway The but these these schools are they have played an important role in the overall fabric of of higher education. In New England and I do want to go back to the Music Festival because I'm so glad to hear you. You say that you told me dictated that would That would continue What is the likely impact on the music festival? If any from this announcement that's hard to say. We are looking into uses of the campus. In general there's some beautiful buildings on the campus and the campus in a beautiful spot up on on a hill in Marlborough side Brattleboro but the music festival has a ninety. Nine year lease We you had signed up for the music festival to be a permanent tenant and that lease will be honored. That's part of this deal and The Music Festival feels that the Marlboro campus is definitely their home now. As the festival they really are only there for about seven or eight weeks in the summer So we're going to have to work this all out. We're we're hoping to figure out other uses for the campus We're we're enlisting a number of people involved in the college now and and Alumni and various groups. I think if I might the the heart of Marlboro has been its faculty and it has an an and the its particular niche has been its curriculum at self determination in subjects and studies indepth study of chosen subjects and self governance and then it also ends with a very large large academic project call which we call the plan and that goes for the last two years and ah of the four that each student is there and it's it's like a kind of a super thesis a super master's thesis I the study. Will that continue emerson. Will they be expected. It will continue in some forms and may not form. It may not be the last two years maybe the last last year but we expect that to continue. We expect our faculty actually to have a great deal of influence in the way Education is delivered in this Institute because they may very well a lot of them choose to go they may very well be in in a majority and have a lot of controller. Yeah I was GONNA ask about the general read of the Faculty I mean is your understanding and most of the faculty marvel or it's a way different environment Emmett working in Marlboro Vermont. That it is comedian and out of Boston every day. And are they okay. I mean most of them going to go. We don't know yet I will say that the Faculty of my read the Faculty having discussed it with the entire Mahbubur community ready Two days ago was their initial reaction was to To be interested in it and not to be negative about it in general now there you know it runs the spectrum. Everything at Marlborough runs the spectrum and this one does too yeah. I think the faculty was intrigued with the idea and the idea that they would get their tenure would be transferred to Emerson Jason and They would become faculty members there. So this'll be this institute at at Emerson College will be the Marlboro Borough Institute Give me the full name. Here has a great day Marlboro Institute of Liberal Arts and Interdisciplinary Studies at Emerson. Okay that's quite a mouthful and one of the intriguing things about Marlboro to me over. The years has been it's town meeting governance where I've been to a couple of town meetings. There where students faculty staff are all welcome to come to One of the larger meeting places on the campus and vote on Various decisions about whether to build a new building or or start a new program or whatever and Will that continue in any form. I don't know I honestly don't know it wouldn't surprise me if it did. It really is part of the Marlborough. DNA and and our goal in looking for a partner here had been to perpetuate that tradition these these traditions of Marlborough. In the way they teach and the way and the self-governance will will be literally like the town meetings that they're having my guess would be that there will be a lot of students control and a lot of self-governance. They'll be able to pull off the kind of town meeting style but I think it will be good in. All of our students incidentally are automatically accepted with Emerson at the tuition rates that they're paying now and So we were. That was another important aspect of this deal. How do the how do those rates compare? I'm just I'm just wondering. Is that a good deal to get to it is and that's my understanding And they get whatever grants-in-aid scholarship and so on that they they have now at Marlborough. So it's not going to be a big sticker shock for them so the idea here is it. Students Held harmless effectively. Yes and Again you know big change in environment. I mean you think about going to a small school in a very very rural setting in the hills west Brattleboro Vermont versus you know versus a place Walking distance to a couple of subway stops. Oh aw that's that's a big difference How how are the students reacting? Well you know hard for me to gauge age. My sense was that their emotions were kind of all over the place when it was it was announced and their immediate reactions. A it just were hard to read I. I would say that they kind of ran the gamut and We'll see after they've reflected on it for for a while is it. Is it fair to say I mean. I think one reaction might be sadness because as gracefully Marlboros doing it and you would expect Maher Mar do do something like this more gracefully than average perhaps It's closing isn't it. Yes yeah and it's I I would say that three action is is a strong sense of sentiment and and at Ta And and among many people alumni former faculty members and staff staff is anxious of course because they would transfer to Emerson and the other groups that I've just mentioned you know now are extremely concerned about this and extremely concerned about the campus there is. It's a beautiful campus when wonderful buildings and And they are and of course. There was the educational tradition and is the educational tradition which they All relate to in a very positive way. Yeah I my impression you know I. I made A number of trips down to Marlborough College over the years during my work as a reporter for the Associated Press different things happening down there from time to time there would attract some media attention and so I'd had down there and and I always I always had the impression of the place that The folks who were there. We're kind of up against some tough odds and way in some ways but on your hand they really loved it and and it was. It was kind of a challenge very it was set up as a challenging educational environment. You know this plan. You talked about the Very a high level ex- expectations by the Faculty of the students And then just Some sort of rustic aspects of being.

"From radio vermont it's the dave ramsey show on WD it's your show about the people places and the issues that matter the most of you now here's your host dave graham good morning reminded is monday september sixteenth two thousand and nineteen and welcome to you are program today we have an excellent one lineup for you i do believe and later on in the show second hour we're gonna be talking to a couple of people from vermont health department about the reason concerns over vaping being in a real apparently related serious respiratory illness some people are vaping tobacco THC other substances in in these little electronic 'electronic cigarette devices and then getting quite sick are there have been i believe it's up to six deaths nationwide i don't know of any reported vermont yet although the state health department has reported boarded that it isn't it isn't been investigating i think four cases of people getting sick one of those cases was found not really be make the connection between vaping in respiratory illness so i guess they're down to three as of our last count although we will we will assuredly get an update on what the count is in the second hour of today's program the the health department has been asking providers to let them know when they are treating people who appear to have this illness we're also going to be talking a little later this hour with garrett graff raff author of a terrific new book out it is a it's it's basically oral history in fact it's called an oral history of nine eleven and it's the you you call the main title is the only plane in the sky geared drafted a terrific job of interviewing hundreds of people who were there that day in various various aspects of the nine eleven catastrophe folks who were in the world trade center towers responding to the to the planes hitting the towers in the unfolding disaster ask that resulted there widows and widowers people who died also he interviewed folks in washington about the plane that hit the pentagon and and what was perceived as a very serious travel plane flying toward the white house or the US capital before it crashed in rural pennsylvania and it's it's a gripping yeah i i was reading over the weekend ended up staying up way up way too late one night because i couldn't put it down and so that is we're talking to garrett graff in the second half hour of this opening hour of the dave graham show here but my chris gassed i want to introduce to is is exotic he was on the program a few weeks ago he as the chair of the marlborough college board of trustees and mr sonic was telling us about a plan to merge marlboro college small liberal arts college in southern during vermont with the university of bridgeport in connecticut a lot of vermont colleges have been struggling some have been closing three closures i think announced this this year so far there was some news over the weekend about a round of layoffs at middlebury college and so it seems that the entire higher education system of course the vermont on state colleges also struggling these days the entire higher education universe out there is essentially suffering from a lack of students there just aren't enough young people a growing up in one of the oft colleges as it were when and the in decades previous send when some of these places were built were expanded and so we're going to be we we we have an interesting case at marlborough college where the the merger proposed between marlborough any any university of bridgeport has been called off they've decided not to do it in so we asked that dick sonic to kind of the marlborough trustees coming in talks talk about that in explaining what happened and dick sonic welcome to the program this morning thank you very much damn dave it's great to be here and so the simple questions way to put it just what happened well both sides were in intensive intensive negotiations and both sides participated intensively you have to go back i think and you start out with the dream the basic idea was to bring this tiny liberal arts college in with a larger university university and to give the kids at the university an opportunity to go up the hill to marlboro vermont and experience variance fine liberal arts education and also perhaps allow the marlboro bar students to go down to bridgeport which is basically professional training school and take advantage of that so the idea the concept was visionary and it was a terrific idea i can't get into the details too much because i'm under under still a nondisclosure clause but suffice it to say that we went along and we analyzed it very carefully and we made a proposal that we thought would be a very good way to keep marlboro borough alive and in good shape and we we gave it to the university of bridgeport bridgeport folks they decided that it was sufficiently wide of the mark that they wanted to to go down the path they wanted to go down that they informed us on friday the thirteenth that yet was not going to work for them and the marlboro issued a statement the other day actually the president of the college kevin quickly i should back up just a little bit and mentioned that my recollection tomorrow burn i did several stories down there as as as an AP reporter who for more than thirty years here in vermont i was found it to be a fascinating and kind of wonderful place actually and and in part because going down there you've got a sensitive for just from talking to students and and so on very serious academic environment this is this is not a lightweight school and the and the other aspect of it was really took the the vermont town meeting tradition various seriously in the sense that the students and the teachers the staff the whole college essentially would gather periodically to essentially chart the course of how the school was going to be operating and so there was this town meeting governance there that it was also kind of unique and very very interesting and i just wanted to be an excellent atmosphere there in something that i would think marlboro marlboro might want to try to preserve even he's even if this change were to come about and sure enough in this in this statement from the president kevin quigley he says as as the smaller institution marlboro college was especially determined to protect the integrity of its rigorous self directed academic model and self-governance community and was that part of the issue here exotic but we certainly wanted to be sure that are significant endowment which we have was put to that use and we are extremely proud of the academic program we have a terrific faculty we have very low student faculty ratio jio we would if we had done this merger we would have a higher student faculty ratio but it wouldn't it would still be low blow by most standards and we felt that we wanted to preserve it for the long term rather than just kind kind of going in for a few years and then and then possibly going down and therefore at this point we expect that we will be looking again and we certainly have some time thanks to the fact that we have a healthy balance sheet so so basically what you're saying it sounds like is marlboro college is essentially looking for new suitors well we're going to take a look look at every opportunity and certainly discuss is the way colleges small colleges are looking they're looking to get together with larger ones if it's going to work but marlboro is is we really i feel very strongly that we want to protect the marlboro tradition and that of course is primarily around the faculty the and we want to be sure that our faculty gets a fair shake out of any sort of merger that we might do or any other activities is that we might do going forward we're going to look at the whole a whole range of possibilities at this point was her concern that the faculty might not not be treated as well this merger would have gone through with the university you never know i mean we we tried to build that in we baked that into our our uh ah offer and the protection of the faculty and you can't be absolutely certain about any of these things particularly given the financial stresses our financial stress incidentally is very similar to that of the other tiny colleges and that is simply that the number of students available has fallen way off and so so we aren't realizing the kind of money for tuition that we normally would yeah this is really a tough time for colleges in vermont we're going to actually have jeb spaulding on on the he's the chancellor of the vermont state college system of course that's a public system different profile from a place like marlboro same issue that which is basically not not enough kids coming through and and middlebury college just has announced has been carrying out actually around of layoffs viti digger had a very interesting interesting story over the weekend and where they looked at the way middlebury is is handling the procedure now after some time ago i think it was the early nineties there was a a a sort of a suddenly announced round of layoffs at middlebury that really upset a lot of people and caused some some damage to the sort of mood of the campus for years following following and and middlebury think is trying to avoid a repeat of that by handling this situation they hope better at this time around and of course green mountain college closing a southern vermont college the there was a school in rutland saint joe college of saint joseph okay yeah all actually closing their doors this year goddard college plainfield you'll has been struggling off and on for years now and it just seems as though something is gonna it almost seems as though something's gotta give here none of these institutions itunes wants to close and and i just i it strikes me that some of them are going to maybe some more maybe you're going to have to it's it's it's a shame really because what you're doing is you're taking out a slice of the educational system that that is unique and that hearkens back to really close individual teacher student relationships relationships and independent discussions and decisions as to what studies the students are going to pursue and you know it you see that kind of across the board in these colleges and and i would hope that it would stabilize but we all are being pretty realistic about the likelihood of being able just to wave a wand to expect more kids to show up you know i'm a graduate of two large state universities i got a bachelor's degree from the university of mass amherst east end a masters degree at ohio state out in columbus and the i must say the times i that i would visit the marlboro colleges ep AP AP reporter i remember thinking you know this must be it takes on a little bit of the flavor of the old agora back in ancient athens where you know i guess plato was sitting sitting at the new of socrates and because there is that amazing connection that the teachers would have students not to say that that that couldn't happen i mean i had a couple the teachers actually at umass in particular who who i really developed a personal connection with and that was great but it just seemed to be the norm and kind kind of the the expectation almost marlboro more so it is absolutely a case if you talk to most marlboro alumni they will single out one or two particularly inspiring teachers who kind of followed their trajectory through through college and well i must say as a graduate of harvard i didn't get so much of that they're either yeah the bigger places it's harder to pull off with every student that's that's for sure so dick how did you how did you ascend to this exalted position mean charon the marlboro trustees it was nepotism my roommate at harvard had become the chair of of that of the marlborough board and he asked me to join oh i see okay this was many years ago so you've just been serving for a while in the marlborough and trustees and they decided you could be here for a while yeah i mean it's it's it's a sweet little college and it it is it is really rewarding to be involved intensively in this and and i must say that that we feel that the stakes couldn't be higher we really have got to you were this thing through in marlborough actually has from what i understand a pretty strong endowment relative to other small colleges as i write it does us it has endowment of about thirty five million and it has debt of about two million which me makes its balance sheet a lot stronger than then most colleges i would imagine yeah that's that's a nice position to be in if you're if you're a small college or pretty much any any enterprise the problem though once again is is the annual expenses versus the revenue that you get from tuition these days and so when you look out into the future the the endowment gives you real strength strength and backbone but it doesn't solve this annual shortfall problem yeah and one thing about marijuana too is i if i remember correctly compared to some other campuses which have all you know in in the last couple of decades seems like a lot of campuses have gone into these building building booms were they're building absolutely you know super fancy student unions and and basketball arenas and et cetera et cetera and marlborough struck me as always always campuses go a little bit on the rustic side is that fair absolutely fair yeah we do have some beautiful buildings and we actually have two under construction that at the music festival has is is building for us and for our use and we have some lovely buildings but but you're right it is it's kind of eclectic the architecture and and we build for our own needs not this big splashy olympic size pools and and huge fields and so on our major sport is broomball ball which only takes a small bit of.

"For your self checkout lane. what do you do. those are the headlines on the. making away Colorado dot com on the main page and I've got a lot of these are very interesting stories today they're they're interesting couple of the more interesting than others and I have a couple videos wine. y'all. beta beta beta beta beta. little Beto work is out there trying to get some traction because remember when he was running against Ted Cruz he was the second coming of politicians and now when he's in a very crowded field with a lot of Democrats that have a lot more name recognition a better track record and frankly more appeal as president he's just beginning to appear desperate. and today. today he has declared a new right Dave without your copy of the bill right so we're going to add some stuff to it I guess there must be eleven a man. ten and a half yeah can I just half all rights because beta work has named living close to where you work as a right it's a basic human right I mean when you're born you know that I'm beginning to think that he doesn't understand the concept of what a right is. you know he's out there trying these all floppies Chino out their trays jangly he's you know training guide I kind of feel sorry for little beta maybe that he thinks the Supreme Court will as they found a right to privacy in roe V. Wade maybe they'll find a right to a living your work who knows his contention is that only rich people get to live close to where they work which is funny because if you've ever been to Washington DC all the rich people in DC do not live in Washington DC all the poor people live in Washington DC so there we flip that script they'll live in Virginia they don't live there when a DC I'll come. that's when the whole way below a live. can be with those people so betas trying to get some traction on the campaign trail and he's just not getting it at all and I want it they can I have a moment to remind people of that I was right see this is my problem we're not doing this right Dave and Angie we need to have I just have this feeling that Rush Limbaugh has an entire library of tapes he is like a wall of tapes that are under the that time I was right category and then when he finds out he was right about something he just goes go to that day when I was right and we'll pull it up we'll play it so we don't have to be as obvious as I am when I say now I'm gonna tell you about that time that I was right but when Beto o'rourke was running for Senate and he was the Darling of America and everyone every person on the left loved him I know liberals in Florida that donated his campaign in Texas and then he decided he was gonna run for president and I said all. no you're gonna find out you're not nearly as popular as you thought you were when you're running against other popular Democrats instead of just running against Ted Cruz so I would expect him to be gone and I just can't see him getting any traction especially is this race is starting to shake out Joe Biden sits firmly on top. Elizabeth Warren is coming on strong. one is a little bit of a problem with Wall Street now you know I I know what you're thinking like I don't care she is from Wall Street. I should well Wall Street has a lot of money to spend a lot of ways. so she continues to do well expect a full scale attack it would be interesting. all these corporate that people who have been supporting Democrats for the last years of Elizabeth Warren was actually did the nominee if they would slip in the support top. I mean it she is. aggressively. pro consumer to the point of being anti business and I personally happen to have a view of capitalism that allows for something to be pro consumer and pro business because if capitalism is allowed to unfold the way it is supposed to unfold it is truly the most selfless form of economic development there is because if I as a business owner don't take care of my customer then I will no longer get their business right I mean that's just the way it is so capitalism in its purest form done well is very selfless Elizabeth Warren I don't know if I've ever seen her praise business or corporation I'm sure it's happened I just haven't seen it but what I have seen her do repeatedly is demon eyes corporations in a blanket way that is patently unfair to a lot of corporations to take care of their employees and take care of their customers and she doesn't necessarily make a distinction so be interesting to see how that whole thing shakes out as this race by the way I I also want to reiterate the polls that are happening now are garbage. so we'll talk about it but please don't put any stock in them. a friend of mine he was Elizabeth Warren fanned she is advocate she she's like a look worn twenty twenty she's ready for president was born and she posted something about the latest polling about Elizabeth Warren coming up on our Facebook page and I said this is not about Elizabeth Warren what I'm about to say it's about the fact that at this stage of the game all of these polls are garbage they mean nothing. I mean after the last election cycle I don't know why anyone would put a lot of stock in any poll but that's just me. so we'll continue to watch that and talk about things that are happening in that race but you know Beto. poor pool. just sad. he's not not catching fire if he did catch fire he's such a wet suit that he would just immediately fizzle out. catch fire you would just he just kind of smoke like a stick of incense because he's he seems soggy to me like if you check a sandy built that stamp I don't know maybe maybe not. maybe also on the blog today I have a video from CBS this morning. very interesting one expert and of course it says expert I love the way it's expert expert predicts twenty five percent of colleges will fail in the next twenty years. we think this could be a good thing I hope. I hope that we are entering a period of creative destruction in higher education because the current model of higher education is not productive it's too expensive and it does not provide a useful foundation for a career and unless and until. colleges and universities start recognizing that they need to genuinely prepare people to go out and get an actual job not just go well but wait tables and you guys there's nothing wrong with waiting tables but I was a you know I worked with a lot of college graduates who waited tables that's not where you go to college you don't go to college to work at a at a lido. what's the restaurant I used to work longer and steak house. how to think about that for a second. love Longhorns food and I worked there for a long time that says something. so we'll see if colleges can adapt because ultimately they focus on green mountain college which is in Vermont pretty school you know kind of colonial looking buildings is very nice and would it be cool if some kind of tech college moved into that space and said Hey we're going to do we're gonna do training just on tech stuff so if you want to learn how to code at a high level and get the certification is necessary for tech then we're going to do that I mean I I hope that things begin to adapt or that other entrepreneurial types move into the spaces and begin to offer real world education that is productive and help students come out with the chance of having a job that pays well enough to pay back any student loans they incurred and by the way our work force is still woefully under trained we have so many college graduates in this country compared to other developed nations we do we have a lot they'll some smaller nations where everybody just him automatically goes to college yeah okay we don't be that but we have a highly educated workforce but they're not educated in the right things and that's creating that labor gap that that has us doing H. one V. says and stuff like that yeah I have a lot of friends or used a lot of friends in tech in one of their peace with the H. one visa program is that they say look they're Americans it'll do these jobs but. they don't want to pay for him. the big tech companies are like Hey we can bring somebody on H. one piece and pay them less. well if we could prove that we had and an educated workforce that was capable of doing the work it would make it harder for companies to do go around our work force to bring in workers when indeed you can find those workers here at least in theory I would hope so so that's a very interesting story that's on the one today at least I think it's interesting and a comedian who loves the show hoarders which I do too have you ever watched orders Angie do you watch it I've seen it. that was not fun see now you watch doctor pimple Popper and I watch warders so I'm not sure which of us is worse I don't. gross orders I I usually watch until they move a couch and find a bunch of dead kittens and then I'm kind of out yeah inevitably the person whose house is they're they're trying to clean out looks down just wondered where them kittens went. so far there was buried under eight thousand bound newspaper the newspaper was covering the small home yeah well I don't think these people can smell anymore at all now I guess that I mean at some point your nose just goes. and this guy has a hilarious bit on that very thing. about cat poop. in smell. what do you ever watch shorter's Dave you're watching the episode hoarders no you want to feel better about whatever you're cleaning level is watch waters we get a look really really should clean out my closet I know all watch warders instead. wait I don't have a dead body shop in my closet from nineteen fifty three I'm. I'm fine I am a hoarder are you big time what do we have to have an intervention we can bring the camera so you don't have any did kids on your couch to you because that's usually where I turn the horrors off it's mainly books and see these and videos you and I have talked about your love the books I've moved too many times to be a hoarder about books because moving books socks it's awful it is but I'm not going to get rid of these I mean I I spent a lifetime accumulating a library of every thing that I love I'm not about to get rid of it what it what is any going to do with it when you die yeah I just throw it away. give it to like nobody wants to buy books I'll tell you that right now and it's really annoying that she doesn't have the interest in it that I do so yeah I I have to find someone that a lover of books it's called the library read they love books at the library and a lot of which is the library I have only quality what do you have like first editions or do you just have a book so you like to read you know they're just wonderful non fiction and fiction books classics. like I said I've spent a lifetime accumulating only the Crandall a crime that I love what you know what you should do when I'm being dead serious about this you should find a school a school that would take them because the school libraries are not nearly what they used to be because the funding just is not there and so they have huge gaps in I would look at a high school library not a you know anything below high school library but or just the regular library they look book donations and then they have the book sales to to support the library and you can you can encourage more reading by more people by donating to library..

And again, and again on the fundamentals, and that's what we do here on program. Leave it or not. Again, conventional wisdom is poison contrary to conventional wisdom. What we do at Markowski investments, quite honestly, is not that complicated. It's not that complicate. It really is. You get the fundamentals down people you're doing the right thing. You're going to do well. Little life license here in their little things not that difficult, if you follow certain rules, guess what you're going to do? Well. Especially here in the United States. One of the things that I continue to talk about again, again here on the program. Again, it's fundamentals. Shop. Get your kids in debt. It's not getting your kids in debt. It was fun. I was a op Ed in the Wall Street Journal by. Columbia University law school professor's name is Philip hamburger. And he makes some good points. Big some good points. He was talking about how many administrators. How many administrators have been added from the time period? Nineteen eighty-seven to twenty twelve at colleges and universities, a half a million. A million administrators. And his column he makes the point that, well, the government's got step in and the government's gotta see and take a look at the faculty to student ratio, and the amount of ministers that they have there and try to force colleges and universities to get rid of some of these things, and cut the bloat what? Phil. Then. Colleges and universities are businesses. My friend. They are business notice lately. That certain colleges and universities going out of business. The one I saw the other day Green Mountain college in Vermont been there since eighteen fifty eighteen forty some out of is this and it's gone. Their businesses is what they are. And you know what they're gonna do whatever the hell they want to do. They're making money. They'll cut administrators win the money stops coming in. The problem. The problem is, when you subsidize something the price of it is going to go up, and that's what we continue to do with all allow stupid student loans, and stupid student eight out there. You price the product based upon what people can afford to pay and it will come down. Well, I do appreciate professor hamburgers. Notion here and the belief that we need to get the cost of higher education. It's not just that. Let's stop kidding ourselves. Okay. How many people out there that went to college back in the fifty? Sixty seventy is even nineties. Have you gone back on a college campus and take a look at the facilities and the dorm rooms today? Have you? My dorm room freshman year was our say it was four guy it was like a barracks, we were in a study hall because they ran out of room at Dell plane hall at Syracuse university. We had we had a metal locker as well. For our stuff. That was it black and white TV on the dorm floor. Phones going into the rooms. There was one phone on the entire floor. Have you seen the facilities? Is a four year. Cruz kids are going on for crying out loud. Give me a break. There's a price for that. And the reality is, is that all of this money flows in because it's there. Just like all of these condos go up in Florida and the prices of houses go up Florida, because there's a lot of cheap money float around and people have access to it. So they were still moans. You watch new most, you can get them and the funny thing is the student loans, don't even have to go to the school. They can go to the student. I've actually spoken to people called in. I can't believe it. My kid used this student loan money to go on spring break by kid use the student loan money to buy a car. I'm not making this up. It's a disaster is what it is. And you get stories like this. Oh, America's millennial baby bust. Profound cultural shifts can't be overcome by pro NATO subsidy. Now, you got you got the government types out there that want to help out all these, they wanna give subsidies..

"Jonathan when you sort of run into people might not know anything about Kathleen university of. Nope. Pretty much everybody in Vermont does. But there might be some that don't or out of staters. You know what do you tell them? That's the special about Kathleen university. What should it be known for? I tell him that cast in university is located in the very charming town of Casten, Vermont, it's a classic New England Billig where sort of halfway between Rutland Vermont, and the New York border to those who don't know lake bombs Zine about ten minutes on our west and Killington ski resort, which most people have of, is about half an hour to our east. I tell them that we were month. I if sitution of higher education, we were founded in seventeen eighty seven which means that we are the eighteenth oldest institution of higher education in the entire United States. Wow. I tell them that like the other Vermont state college institutions, we just have a beautiful campus, lots of trees, giant swimming pool, snowboard park, a rock, climbing wall fully equipped fitness center, as you know, Jeb we have a gorgeous football stadium, which is famous for hosting some of the largest crowds, and all of division, three football and miles of walking and snowshoeing, paths to the surrounding woods. I mean, I don't mean to over emphasize it, but been Casselton. It is the only public college in the state of Remond and has a football team. And you also have I don't know what it is. But a couple of dozen NCAA varsity sports sports. So if you're playing hockey or you don't flip ball or wrestling, or women's skiing, or no all kinds of things that's certainly, one of the things that differentiates Casselton from others. Correct. So we have about two thousand students hundred of them are student athlete. We have twenty eight bar cities, or, and they're a major part of our identity. It helps us attract students from not only all over Mont, but all over New England and in fact, you mentioned women's skiing, we attract students from old of the world, partly because we have such a great alpine skiing team. Great hockey team. We have students from thirty six foreign countries. We're very proud of. Wow. And sports is a large part of that are just out of curiosity. Jonathan, you know, if you have students from all over the world, do they all speak English or, or are there things you have to do this support their student success? You know, when they when they arrive great question, a lot of do speak English, especially the ones from Scandinavia in other European countries. On the other hand, we have students from Asia specifically China who are not pointing English, and we do have a special if called a pathways program, special program that sort of shelters them, the first two semesters, we have an amazing English as a second language teacher, Adrian Tunis who brings them up to speed and slowly transitioned them into our main academic program on a great experience for, let's say, Vermont students that have come from a place where they don't have a whole lot of international exposure, or anything like that to be in. That kind of setting. Well, in fact, out to the whole point is coming to cast is not just great for these international students. But our native born Vermonter 's benefit, even more from this exposure to this kind of ever city Anton oven. How does Casselton you know what does it do for the region? How does it help out beyond the campus and in the greater and region? Well, I think that most listeners probably understand that university like cast in really ends the economic driver for this region in terms of the number of jobs, and we provide to faculty and staff, and students, and in terms of the end product, which is an educated, student, who's prepared as you heard from the other presidents to enter the workforce, and embark upon careers in the state of for months. But one thing that listeners who don't, don't live in this part of the state may not know is that. A place like Casselton is also the cultural center of our region every week our fine arts center hosts doing amazing variety of cultural events. They're open to the general public as well as the university community. So we are plays dances. Use a Kohl's lectures, concerts, classical music, concerts, film, festivals are chose and so forth them. You get your I imagined at this this time when they had a two other colleges have to close their doors at. It's especially important for Casselton to be providing those kind of foundational aspects of the region. So thank you very much for doing that Jonathan. We only have a couple of minutes, I'm just curious or anything that, you know, you're, especially sort of proud of our wanna brag about in the last year. And what are you looking forward? See in, in cast future. Well, actually, I think you just mentioned it. Casten university entity entire, Vermont, big college system. Energetically accommodated, the students left in the lurch by the unfortunate closures of Green Mountain college in polling. The college thing shows have been brought Brundtland and there was also southern about college in Bennington, and so to help out these students, we've waived the -plication fi, we've agreed except all of their college credits already earned we've guaranteed them housing. We provided them all with the generous financial aid package and our goal, of course, was to make their transition to their new home as seamless as possible. Okay. So Jonathan I wish we had more time, but we don't I hope people will choose to go to your website, and consider Casselton.

"Fallen behind the technology. I guess, because back in the fifties and sixties somebody could graduate from high school themselves. A living wage today, chant. So education system. Just can't keep up with what's going on in. Then top of that, if you wanna go to higher education because of government grants and all kinds of other stuff's, like like, you know, you turn into the but the price of colleges is outrageous, now because of all kinds of government grants and scholarships, which is, you know, if you get a scholarship now you've got a scholarship, come, you, Jack up the prices. Yeah. Phillip, what do you think about that? I mean, I've got three children, the first of whom if he chooses to we'll go to college another year. So, you know, I'm thinking about all of this from the parent perspective is as well as the person higher education. And, you know, I just have to say bread, I, you know, I agree with you. It's, it's gotten out of hand, you know, the prices have been too high if we want good people in communities to be able to do good work. They can't be saddled with student loan debt, you know, for feet sake. I mean, people that wanna farmer, stop or start these food, enterprises or do community service. I mean those aren't the high paying sectors, so we have to find our way forward in order to actually address that. And so that, that's why I'm proud to be at sterling. In fact, that's why I decided very consciously to, to go to Stirling specifically was because of the commitment to affordability and trying to find a model that makes this work, and it's much easier to try to find that model. It's not simple. But I think it's easier. I think there's a higher chance of success at a place. That's the scale of sterling size 'cause we can be nimble and agile and try to figure this out. And fortunately, people respect that and understand they're willing to invest in that. Yeah. Thank you for the call, Fred Phillip does does that mean that while sterling is going through the motions of doing this in, in coming up with the innovative methods that you were talking about that. Maybe weren't present for a long time at other schools, like Green Mountain college is there a point at which, you know, there is no silver. There's no magic wand for this because what you're doing. Sterling isn't necessarily going to work at another higher. Education institution, sterling kind of has that is a perfect storm for them. And. I guess the question becomes. Can school like sterling that's being progressive in its thinking and innovative be a leader for other schools around the country. Yeah. I you know, I think already schools around the country are, are looking at sterling. And I think we have to recognize also the there's this difference between, you know, the, the public, higher education institutions and private colleges like sterling Green Mountain Goddard's and what I think is going to be really fascinating to watch is the increasing pressure. That's there for public education to be, you know, as close to free as possible. I mean we're seeing that in the national climate receiving that in New York state right now. And, you know, I'm frankly, maybe it's ironic, but I'm I'm all for that. If if we can make that work the quandary is how do private colleges like sterling and other places. You know what's their niche if that's increasingly the scenario and may well be if we have the right people in office, I think, so. But what worries me is places like sterling. In Green Mountain college God or Paul Smits, these other places around that, you know, that's where the creativity is the creativity the vitality, the innovation it exists, in those places in ways in that it's hard to really replicate in, these larger publics public institution. So, you know, there's a dialectical sense of sitting there waiting for us to try and figure out and I'm not quite sure what it means in the end, but it's interesting to be on the inside. It's right will in this also interesting. And I'm glad you made that distinction between public and private because obviously that you can be more nimble as, as a private institution, in this particular, you know, in this particular conversation, because you can accept ideas, students who attend sterling. They work as part of their education. They work on the campus. Right, right. Yeah. There's there's this bizarre that we, we've had in America. Society where we take people out of the workforce, precisely at the time in which they can really be learning some of the most important lessons, in order to educate them for the workforce, and sterling as turn that on its head by being one of their seven or eight federally designated work colleges in the country where work on campus. Doing things very often that are applied to precisely what they'll be doing when they get out that work is integrated into the educational, you know, time that they've got it sterling and they, they actually get paid for it. Thereby also reducing the cost of the education, so it seems so brilliant. I can't believe that more places haven't somehow adopted will kind of way brought it up because I it's one of those things that I feel is unique. I remember when I was in college many moons ago that, you know, I was doing work study. And the, my family insisted that that's the only way was going to go to college was to be sickly earned my earn my keep so a lot different allot different than. You're talking about because it could be everything from, you know, working with the draft horses, and the animals to, you know, work in the kitchen or whatever happens to be, which is it's fantastic. And I, I agree with you. I think more schools do need to be doing it in just the last minute, or so that we have Philip at the, the innovation for your school just needs to keep happening. You need to keep that conversation going in, in a swimming that, that dialogue among the staff is, is, is constant in that you're trying new things all the time is, is there is there a plan in the works, right? Well, there's a not only plan of the work, but of a plan that complete now ready that the out, and that's the new strategic plan that's been worked on by the sterling community for the last six months, and so that now in in place and it's it's ambitious. It's creative. It's innovative. And you know, and it requires Erling to do some things that sterling hasn't done. Previously, I think you know, down the now is the time to test out things like, you know, potentially own line education graduate education. You know, what are the ways can sterling serve in ways that really befit its mission, and it's, it's X peas because the thing I've just been so impressed by, by the faculty, there is, they are so good at experiential hands on education. And this working hands working minds thing is not just a, you know, a simple slogan. It's, it's a way of light. It's embedded into the culture into the DNA of the place. And, you know, I've never seen anywhere like it. So I feel incredibly privileged to be there as part of that. And starting to think ahead with my new colleagues about what we can do to if if it's so good. And it is so good. You know, how do we actually get this out there further into the world? That's the next question for sterling Philip.

"Sitting in for Dave Graham. And my guest is Philip Ackerman, least, who's the teen of the school of the new American farmstead at sterling college and prior to the break. Phillip as the music was coming up. You were talking about the, the Wendell berry farming program in Kentucky and the music may have drowned out. But I think you said that, that program is available to wish in free in that, that's one of the things that the school is moving toward for, for certain programs. Right. Sterling one of the things that I saw admire about what sterling has been doing the last couple of years really trying to ensure affordability. And in this case, being highly creative, providing this program in Kentucky, which is to intensive years of learning sustainable agriculture practices, and students being able to there's an application process, obviously, it is competitive, which also means that it's a great cohort of p. People with whom to work in for two years. And so we're sending one of our key faculty members down. Rick Thomas is, is unfortunately, in some place, leaving the cranberry community to work with others down in Kentucky and building out that program. So I just think that's tremendously exciting really innovative model, which also speaks to this revitalization rural communities, again, you know, this opportunity instead of to, to grow vertically, sterling really finding ways to grow Zonta Lee. And I think therefore having a broader impact, and really positive ways that help other communities, you know, even in addition to Chris bury you've talked a little bit about how as you said, kind of inverting that higher education model in in. I'm wondering is it is it actually attracting a different kind of student than who's who's coming. Yeah. I think that's a fascinating question. It's. Fascinating to, to watch. And so, you know, the, the average age, I would say of, I haven't run all the numbers here, but of the folks who are participating, for example, in the school of the new American farmstead, you know, there definitely folks who tend to be, you know, in their thirties, and above all the way into their sixties and seventies. So, you know, there's a different age demographic, there is a real breadth in terms of what people are bringing to the table from their outside expertise, their previous professional lives in that's fascinating to see. You know, one of the things I'm also seeing in a lot of these nontraditional programs is that we also see a predominance of women very often, and I think that is people are women. You know, in many cases, who have been the primary child care, givers, very often, they're finding their way into the professional world or, you know, working on new skills that they'd like to hone as they have a bit more time. So that's a fascinating piece. As well. We are talking to Phillip Ackerman, least dean of the school of the new American farmstead at sterling college. We'd like you to join the conversation at two four four one seven seven seven or toll free at one eight seven seven to nine one eight two five five. I wanna talk a little bit about. One of the great things that we're hearing about sterling in particular, is that you not only are having kind of this, this depth in breath of student being involved, but you're actually seeing a lot of people who are attending the school staying in Vermont, which is exactly what everybody all the policy makers all the politicians, everybody wants they want people to come to Vermont into stay in Vermont. And that's a very that's a big positive. Right. Absolutely. I think we have to do everything within our power to, you know, attract those people and at the same time keep the young people. And so, you know, very often, what that involves is not only making sure that they have a skill set of liberal, but that they also have the business savvy in which survive and, and hopefully more than just, you know, be able to scrape by, but really finds solid lively hoods, you know that, that help keep them here because. That, that really is the fabric of the rural communities, Vermont that, that we know so. Well, so that's, that's one of the beauties and you know, that, that helps me sleep at night, knowing that I can participate in that into something. Well, and they're certainly critics out there who say that, that, that working landscape that we in Vermont take great pride in and consider part of our quality of life isn't necessarily affordable anymore. And, you know, as you say, providing students with the skills to actually be able to have a business date in stay in business in Vermont. That's, that's huge. And, and not the kind of success story you typically hear out of Vermont college these days? Right. And it certainly don't want to cast it as, as a simple, enterprise, in terms of finding financial stability. But I think one of the things that happens when people come in they participate in an educational, it really a living educational community, then they start to create these nets. Sort of these Mike arises, you know, like, in the soil in some ways, they start to create these networks within the community. So suddenly those, those networks can turn into business opportunities or perhaps, you know, a land purchase isn't necessarily just strict real estate transaction. It's really intergenerational transaction. So I think when people come to a place reside there and start to build the relationships that they have by virtue of for example, sterling college then suddenly, other opportunities arise, and, and those relationships, I think that, that, that really matter. They create the kinds of communities that we want, and hopefully the kinds of businesses that can prosper here as well. Are we seeing a shift in, in kind of attitude in schools, because we're we're we're seeing? I mean you look at this, this gift that was given to Morehouse students over the weekend of, you know, the graduating class having their, their debt, potentially absolve by billionaire, setting up a trust to the tune of tens of millions of dollars and that traditional model of college is almost out of reach in your school. And in several Vermont schools have have taken steps to kind of be different and be more progressive, and more attuned to the needs of, of students who who want to expand in, in, in learn and talk a little bit about how how progressive kind of sterling in the school, the new American firms that have become. Yeah. I think if we're really honest and, and that this conversation doesn't always happen in higher education. I think that we start to recognize that people really are looking for education and a bit more of an olive cart fashion. You know, sometimes, you know, they are going for the bachelor's degree, or the graduate degree. But in many cases, you know, it's sort of, like just in time delivery, that seems to be so pervasive in our economy. You know, I think people are in some ways looking for just in time education. You know what particular skillset do they need right now? And that's what we're seeing with the school in numerous confirm said many cases, they're coming because they realize there's something specific, they need to know. They they've got a limited time in which they can commit and invest. And so, I think that's part of the new American educational landscape. And, you know, when we are willing to admit that the higher education system in some ways really is broken then that's the. Opportunity for, you know, capitalizing off the disruption, and turning that into innovation and really meeting the needs of, you know, I hate to call them consumers, I guess I'd rather call them citizens because that's really who were trying to cater to, or the, the citizens who really are under girding of, of our societies. And for his always seem to appreciate that aspect. And yet there has been there have been breaks in the system and you know firsthand as you mentioned, as you as you at the top of our discussion that you started at Stirling in January. Your previous employer was Green Mountain college where you had a very distinguished run at that school, and they just had their last commencement this past weekend. In all indications are that, you know, there are various factors that have jeopardized, the jeopardize that particular. Institution. But we're seeing others falling to. You know, how does that, you know, does that put the fear of God into you? Well, yeah, the fear of something. But I'm you know, I don't mind here is a driver and stuff. What? But, you know it it does I mean, I have to say even three to five years ago, if I and I literally ought about this, I thought, you know, is, is my job in my profession secure. And at that point in time, I thought, you know, just cannot imagining imagine any of this disappearing and then two days ago was back on the green, mounts college campus, visiting colleagues, literally, as they had their cars parked outside of the different office buildings and they were they were loading up their personal belongings. They were putting things into the shredding boxes and files, and they were putting the other pieces into recycling, and that was the most palpable moment for me of, you know, the potential of just gonna disaster in progressive education in the United States, you know, it was it was, gut wrenching and tear, jerking. And, you know, I think that Green Mountain college, you know, there, there could have been more agility. I think we were very, very innovative of for a long time, and perhaps started to sit on the laurels a bit, too much, because there was this need to change even further even more dramatically, and you know, that change takes leadership and vision and, you know, it means people being a bit. Finding some big okay with the discomfort. I guess of the decisions of changing the way, not only that, what we teach that also how we teach it, and how we deliver it and in some cases, it may not always be in real time face to face it. It may be online and that was one of the successes of Green Mountain. College was, you know, the online programs that we developed there, the graduate programs. In fact, you know, the irony is that commencement on Sunday. They announced that in fact, it was the first time in Green Mountain colleges history that there were more. Graduate students who had all participated online in their programs than there were undergraduates, but I, you know, it, it it was a tough thing to watch, but I think sterling has so far has been more agile more innovative, and has really recognized that this is an inverted model that we're dealing with, and, you know, we do if we're going to have colleges survive. New england. We need to be catering to, you know, older learners to adult learners to nontraditional folks to people who are coming in for these shorter. Spurts variants inside skills based courses. Well, we have a caller on the line. Fred from Newbury, good morning, Fred morning. How are you today? Pretty good. It appears to me that. Public education has.

"So once the secretary, Florida state needs to be needs to be reinstated. If this guy is going to get away with this. Yeah. Exactly. I would have the moon. And here's another one the moon bad. Presidential candidates attacked the call for his resignation. I mean, this is the first day of black history month, right? And and he would be replaced by a black guy. Eight four four or five hundred forty two forty two. What do you think what's going to happen to the governor of Virginia? He is. He is a democrat someone said that the last line of of his of his heartfelt apology. That's what they're going to call. It a heartfelt apology is should be. And I'm not going to resign. Thank god. I'm a democrat. You don't want to when a when a democrat does something like this, even if he's twenty six twenty seven years old. It's a youthful indiscretion. A Republican does it. Racist. That's the way it works. Paul. You're next with Howie Carr. Go ahead, Paul. Our? With Whoopie Goldberg after cheers. Black fits with her on stage. Yeah. That was way up to eighty four. So I mean, how come it's a problem? Well, he's a liberal again. It depends on your political perspective. Oh, so it's do no wrong. Democrats. Right. Well, look at it. I was thinking about during the break. Look at Trent Lott. Remember him? He was the he was the Senator from Mississippi and was the was the Senate majority leader and Strom Thurmond was celebrating his one hundred birthday. He was still the Senator from South Carolina. I think it was his hundredth birthday. And he ran for president is a Dixie crap that was the that was they broke off from the democrat party and forty eight. He was the governor of South Carolina at the time because the Democrats had integrated the armed forces. And so so Trent Lott said he was just making a joke and trying to make an old man feel good at his birthday party. And he said, you know, sometimes Senator Thurmond, I think it would have been better if you had been elected president in nineteen forty eight and they they ran Trent Lott out of his majority leadership position. They basically ran them out of the Senate for saying that just trying to be just trying to say, something, gracious and. Nice to an old guy who wasn't going to be around that much longer. And this guy this guy is going to get away with it though. And again, this is going to be if he gets away with it. If he gets away with a nut still say, he's a heavy favourite to survive. He he will he will prove the double standard once and for all, thanks. Thanks for the call Paul. What else is funny too? Is that if you're a democrat, you can't be judged on one indiscretion you made a million years ago. But if you're a Republican, you cannot only be judged on indiscretion, you can meet judge on hypothetical indiscretions that you made thirty years ago. No evidence, if they feel they have if they have an inkling that something happened. You can lose your job. Will remember Sheldon? Whitehouse was the guy who was really a grilling Brett Cavanaugh the Senator from Rhode Island. White House was grilling Cavanaugh about what he meant by pufus or whatever that word was in the in the yearbook, and I'm thinking to myself, wait, a second Sheldon Whitehouse, didn't your son get into some trouble for some underage drinking a few years back, you know, with with one of the Chafee kids, you know, the Yankees riding around Rhode Island. Drinking their brains out underage. But of course, nobody ever mentions that you don't because again, not because Sheldon Whitehouse Yankee, it's because he's a democrat. So he gets a pass his kid gets a pass. Everybody gets. You gotta be. It it's the democrat immunity from prosecution. So now now that he's confirmed that it's him in the picture. We've moved to the stage of the news cycle where all the reporters. Call every democratic presidential candidate every democrat elected official and ask them. Should he resign? Right. That's that's where this is headed, right? I know you're saying that cynically, but I think you have to ask that. Absolutely. You do you know, especially Cory Booker got all that free ink and airtime today because he announced I mean now now you gotta hit them with a real question. Right. You have to and Joe Joe Biden is taken all this crap for being called a racist. Earlier in the day ask Joe Biden is he still down here in Fort Lauderdale. I don't know. But he tracked down Joe Biden, by the way. How is it time for a national conversation about black face not by Megan Kelly? She's not getting into that one again tau if she were still say we could have a town hall with Megan Kelly and the secretary of state of Florida, and maybe be Trent Lott could come back from his lobbying job in DC. I'm sure there are other ones that I've forgotten about have gotten into GM's for stuff like this. If they asked Kamala Harris about it. I know at her answer would be let's move on. I remember what speaking of Kernersville, which figured it. Police blotter facts. I remember one time. I think I don't know if it was great Swisher is father was also in politics in Kernersville. I think it was the old man, whatever his name was the the older Swisher was at a city council meeting one time, and he spoke in black dialect, and even in even in like, the Sabbath these North Carolina that was a big deal. He took a he he didn't have to resign. But he took a lot of crap about this is this is really gonna be enlightening. How this how this plays out eight four four five hundred forty two forty two Tom you're next with Howie Carr. Go ahead. Tom. Say how you know if the Republicans were really serious about couldn't a night between this jokers shoulder blades. They would get Justice cabinet already issue. A public statement, of empathy and support for this guy. But you know, what Kavanagh did was was so inconsequential compared to this. And again, the age difference the difference between being I think I think Cavanaugh was seventeen wasn't. He wasn't. He a junior in high school when? Macho stuff appeared in the yearbook. So it's the difference with it's it's almost ten years difference in age, those are those are ten pretty important years. Aren't they? Especially when you figure again, north of north of didn't go to light Green Mountain college Hampshire college where everybody's smoking weed all day long. He went to he went to Virginia Military institute. VMI he he had he had a he was from a disciplined institution, and then he went to medical school, which again is is not not an easy thing any medical school. And yet he still behaving in this fashion. I'm just trying I'm trying to pretend that I'm that this these a Republican, right? And and I'm on MSNBC or CNN. So there's there's a CBS reporter how he was asked Governor Raimondo whether she thinks the governor north should resign. And apparently, the New Jersey governors is just directing all comments to the democratic governors association. Well, you know, the the governor of New Jersey's got a problem because he just they just broom the case one of the one of the campaign female campaign workers claims she was harassed by the head of his his Hispanic officer, some some PC affirmative action office, and they just broom that case, so I'm sure governor Murphy the last thing he wants to do is get mixed up in in another one of these cases like this and how you were asking about the difference in age. Well, actually, they really don't let you rent cars until you're over the age of twenty five because your brain isn't fully developed. So he was twenty six he can rent a car breath. Cavanaugh could not ever just doing comparisons. Here. John, you're next with Howie Carr. Go ahead. John. And I like to tell you you have a fantastic crew. Thank. The point that I would like to make his that. I put the governor of and. Of New York right up there with pedophile. That's all I have to say. They're exactly pedophile. It's you know, they're they're not they're not having sex with with children. They're just, you know, governor north rim. He I don't care. How you spin. What he said. He basically said they were just you keep the baby comfortable while you have a discussion with what you're gonna do. And one of the texter says are they keeping the Democrats keeping governor north room comfortable while they have discussion about what they're gonna do with him. You want some coffee governor house he air conditioning in here. Sometimes sometimes governor those of us in political life. Find ourselves in. Circumstances that the coin of phrase might be described as tragic and difficult and sometimes governor for the good of the mother's health candidate is comes is born with severe abnormalities.

And I think history has proven the I was on the right side of history that night that day now who's gonna get who's going to get a tougher time on Rachel is is is the governor of Virginia gonna get a now, especially since you came out for infanticide earlier this week on WTO P radio in Washington is he going to get a tougher time or an easier time than Howie Carr Ola.
