Do you have a particular kind of reader in mind when you sit down to write a book like war on the border people who are curious people who wanna look beyond the mythology of my books.

"I think. I think they're discussing whether or not steph. Curry meredith an mvp. You know in the conversation and can smith said he might not even make the playoffs. And so on. And so i'm left. They're trying to figure out whether or not to play in game. It's a play in game. So i guess they're not. They're playing their way into the playoffs but it is also sort of the play offs right. I mean it's like You've achieved the level that lets you play the special game. I mean you are playing off to with a chance to win the nba championship. So to sorta dr- dr- continue that phrase to raise the bridge between those two. Things is just sort of mind boggling. This is my. This is where i come down. I think it's fantastic and the game. Quality for the lakers warriors game alone. That's all it's it's all been worth it. But i think it's fun as a fan and i think that it's been in so much as it's supposed to raise the stakes and bring in bring back this sort of you know get people's interest for the play offs and religions and maybe you know halfway fans or whatever the urgency of the game is what's is really what the marketing is right. I mean the fact that it's it's not it's not exactly player. Go home but it sort of player go home. The problem with that is that i've had several discussions over the past week trying to explain what's happening to my family and none of them understand what i'm talking about. I understand it well enough to even talk about it. But they're like oh so if they lose this and lebron doesn't get to be in the play well not exactly. He'll get another chance. You know i mean it. It's a. I don't think they could have built it any better. It's a brilliant construction. But i think that the complexity of it makes it like it makes it just a little bit too. It makes it feel a little bit different. Feels like a little bit of. It doesn't feel like real playoffs. Playoffs are just. It's either sweet sixteen. I mean it's either. Ncaa tournament style. Or it's the seven game five game series style. It's sort of like beyond logic is just so so simple and this is just so complicated. I thought the nba's use the phrase a win or go home was particularly funny Because one yes this postseason sports so win or go. Home is not exactly a weird concept. That happens all the time every year number. Two as you point out this whole round was built on the idea of not win but not exactly go home Finish ninth or tenth in your conference and get to keep playing more games. Lose that i play in game and still get to play another plan yet So it's not actually win or go home so much as we're delaying window. Very weird This is from augie hayes. Legendary dallas sportscaster. Dale hansen announced. He is retiring in september Dale hansen who was a huge star in dallas when david narrow growing up came to national prominence figures back when he started doing these very progressive monologues on the ten o'clock news there in dallas One of which got him. Booked on ellen Augie as wants to know who is the heir to the dale hansen rant thrown. Is there an air to this farewell. Dale hansen can we get the lancet on the show. a friend. jason gay was suggested it was. It seems so obvious it's crazy. Dale hansen is a legend. He should just be a permanent he should be a permanent third go host. I mean he's he's freaking out right he can do. Dale hanson's amazing. I don't know there's not going to be an someone else inheriting the dale hansen rant thrown. At least nobody like dale hansen right. I mean it's is he. He was in a very specific place where he where he garnered so much respect and comfort with the audience by being on the evening news community to find that place. Just a little bit. Because i don't know the people quite know it. The place is that you were part of the anchorman. Generation of local news So you you gain this just a huge amount of local cred that you could not gain in the same way now. like somebody's gonna have dale hansen job at channel. Eight there in dallas. But they're not going to have dale. Hanson's job yeah. I always say that about newspaper columnist. Somebody's going to be a sports columnist. The boston globe and ten years i think. But they're not gonna have bob ryan's job right or appear gammons. Jabber dan shaughnessy shop. It's just not going to be the same job so he had all this. Just like notoriety built up and by the way all the skill at writing and just like making love to the camera and everything. Nobody's better than that in local news. The dale hansen but then he also had the texas. Yeah the idea that there was this guy in dallas delivering these monologues. And i'm pretty sure you. I grew up with dale hansen watching him do sports. Like when i first saw the aggregated dallas sports anchor. Dale hansen has a model. You know goes viral on michael sam. I was like oh was like oh this is like a bat. Like did something terrible happen But the idea. I think for national people like oh my gosh. There's this guy in dallas texas who is in a red state who is delivered. That was very very powerful in any way that just helped set him on this trajectory. Totally totally i mean. The fact that it was counterintuitive. I think was the real selling point for the net in a national level. But he was anybody was great at what he did. Sometimes it takes that surprise that sort of a you know to to kind of cut through your preconceptions and get you to listen but yeah i mean the generation. There is yeah. There's so much about the generation. You're right. I mean it's like now we always talk about. Oh the you know the glory days when like every american trusted walter cronkite early. You know whatever you know you just you watch the national news and everyone. Everyone kind of believes that is like a universal truth but for the longest time. That really was your you know for a lot of markets. That was the local newscasters. And you know in texas in particular when you have all the way. He's been tied into the dallas cowboys and feuded with the dallas cowboys. I mean he's like you feel like you know him on a personal level and that's that's that is also an oddity for his generation of trusted new sources right that there is. There is a personal side the whole thing and just to be so tight and like i said we both said to football into two sports makes him even more sort of part of the family than just your average newscaster But he's yeah. I don't know given all that. It's hard to imagine anybody sort of taking up the occupying the same space in our media ecosystem.

You find this The writer who described himself as being toward the liberal end of respect toward the liberal and Toward the Liberals can't even admit what he is. Describes himself as being toward the liberal end of the spectrum noted That he realized the irony of the situation when he found himself the topic of discussion on the Rush Limbaugh show. Let me tell you It's the Rush Limbaugh show that caused whatever change of mind this guy had. Nobody else was talking about this. That's why this program equals cutting edge of societal evolution. This guy Leo Glennon, who asked his parents With his hand shaking and tears in his eyes to remove the pro Trump signed in their yard, came back with an apology after his rant backfired. Well, your grinnin penned a personal recounting of the lessons he learned after giving his family the ultimatum on their display of support for Trump. Explaining and a follow up entry this week that although he wanted to trigger response with his initial piece, he wanted his apology to go viral. A CZ well Meaning? This is the part. I didn't mean to do that. You need to talk to his parents this way. Um, so anyway, what's the point here? There are many, many points here. That is one of your left. Just be really careful. If I find out about what you're doing, And tend to go public with it. Because then you're going to be embarrassed when the whole country finds out how cockamamie you are. But then He's had to backtrack and apologize, meaning his parents didn't have to change. It would have to remove the trump signs and this guy caved and is going to make sure that the grand parents are allowed to see the grandkids is a lesson for you out there.

If you have even thought about maybe coming out here and get out of this cold in this win get in your car drive on over come in here where it's nice at Mormon toasty. And I tell you it Guinn said this earlier, they will just pick your spirits right up. I tell you come over to the Markham's nursery booth. It is right in the center of the Bennett building a number twenty. You just look up the ceiling see twenty four hundred that is where we would be come on by and say, hi, I'm Damon here today and Damon. I just have to tell you we've been talking about, you know, people ask me all the time. We'll how do you become a client of chapel woods? And how do you join the chapel with family and the answer is always? Well, it's it is quite simple. But we have we qualification and there's a standard first of all our advisor. Don't take on any more than one hundred fifty clients because we wanna make sure that we serve the clients that we have that is why we only take two families per month regardless and it may only accept one. But are you know, we can have and do have the capacity to take to clients per month new families that are five hundred thousand and above in investable assets. The so the assets are very important because we you know, these clients are always going to become millionaires. And that's who we focus on. And then we do the radio show because we wanna help everybody be able to have a great retirement in what to do. But not only do you have to have the right assets. Do you have to have the right attitude? There's AAA for reason. It's assets attitude in advocacy, and advocacy is we you hear me talk about how great our clients. Are we have some of the best clients ever? And this is just an example diamond. I saw sitting on a desk, and I was snooping because it was air. And I just looked interesting, and I opened it up. It looked like it was a handwritten. Note, and it was, but it says Damon I wanna thank you again for all you do to help me with my financial investments. I couldn't do it without you you and your guidance. So I mean, it goes she goes on and on about how appreciative she is. And that's from Nancy, and you know. These are the kind of clients that we have they're so appreciative. They get it. And that's why I say on the attitude park. See she gets it. She's been around. She has no spring chicken. She knows she has this is not her first rodeo. So she knows what to compare us to in knowing that we have clients like that that have been around that really get it is what is so comforting to me. And makes me so proud, especially when I see something like this that because I know it, and I know she's appreciative. But when somebody takes the time nowadays to put it in writing that that that means a lot we're human where people to actual advisors need love to. That's right. And you know, we'd love to hear what our clients they see value. They find value in what we do something else that just warms our hearts is when a client loves us enough and thinks enough of us to send a friend. To come see us through referred. We mentioned Don earlier who was a gentleman that was a referral by our clients, Cheryl. And I mean that. You know, if you if you get an Email from one of us, you know. No. The greatest vote of confidence that you can give to us is by referring us to a friend or someone that family members. And so you know, I Don walked out the door. I said, you know, I know that Cheryl told you all about us, and how wonderful experience she sat with us. We're going to take good care of you as we take care of them. Okay. And then there's another one, and so we get advocacy from our clients, but then we also have our professional partners. And we got a comment here from one of.

Our guest journalist. Jeff Guinn is written a book about Jones. The tenement preacher faith healer. Civil rights activist communist socialist cult leader who attracted thousands of followers in what he called the people's temple. Gwen says Jones exhibited the classic traits of a demagogue Gwynn's book the road to Jonestown is now out in paperback Jonestown was the name of the mission Jones set up in the mid seventies. In the jungles of Guyana where he led nearly a thousand of his followers fleeing from what he said were the imminent threats of American martial law concentration camps and nuclear war. The isolation of Jonestown also gave him more control over his followers. More than nine hundred. People died in that mass murder suicide three hundred of them children. Terry gross spoke with Jeff Guinn last year in a couple of minutes. We'll hear an excerpt of an audio recording made as Jones urged his followers to end their lives, which some listeners may find difficult to listen to Jeff Gwynn's previous book is the best seller. Manson the life and times of Charles Manson, Jeff Guinn, welcome back to fresh air. I'm not going to soon that people know much about the peoples temple or Jim John. So can you just give us a brief overview of what this cult was? And I think it's fair to describe it as a called. Jim Jones originally organized people's temple is a storefront church in Indianapolis in the late nineteen forties in early nineteen. Fifties it became one of the first major mixed race churches in that part of the country and Jones was instrumental in integrating Indianapolis, which had been one of the most segregated cities in America. They later moved to California the purpose of peoples temple as stated was to feed the hungry clothe, the needy extensively to try to raise up all the people who had been left out by society, privately within their organization within their meetings were no outsiders were allowed. They also talked about what they were trying to do is sit a socialist example, everyone treated the same where race money nothing mattered human dignity was at a premium in Jones preached to his followers that if they would live in the socialist way as he led them the rest of the world would be so overwhelmed, but the goodness of what they were doing that. Everyone would live the same way alternately they were not ever going to try to take over a government or nation by revolt or violence, the intended to do it, by example. But there was a real dark side to this. You're talking about the idealistic side. But the reality of what was going on is that he claimed to be God he had total control over people's lives. He had them donate everything that they had and move them or move those willing to follow him. And it was just like under a thousand people who came with him to the jungle of Jonah where there was no way out. They carved out. I mean, they they carved out a little part of the jungle for for their village. I wanna cut to the end of the Jim Jones story. And then we'll tell the whole story in more detail. The story ends with him not only assuming complete control of their lives, but complete control of their deaths. Describe the death that he orchestrated for everybody in his cult who is living with him in the jungle in Ghana. By the end in November, nineteen Seventy-eight Jones's attitude towards his followers had changed in the early stages of his ministry when actually great things were often being accomplished. He thought of himself as the shepherd guarding his flock more and more over the years is his paranoia increased drug use increased he began to think of himself at war with almost everyone else in the outside world, the United States government all kinds of secret forces. He believed he talked himself into believing that at any moment he would be attacked. He would be brought down and he passed this along to his followers at the end. He saw himself as a general in his followers were his troops. And when Jones made the decision that there must be one last. Great gesture so that his name would live in history. His example would live in history that would require the deaths of his followers. So the expression about drinking like he drank the koolade like he went along with it comes from Jonestown. But it wasn't Kool-Aid was a nother kind of punch slavery was it was a cheap Kool-Aid knockoff. And in Jonestown, they lived only on the basics Kool-Aid would have been too much of a luxury. Right. So he studied different toxins. So that people could drink this punch and die and he decided on cyanide. Why did he choose cyanide? For months before November eighteenth Jones had been studying trying to decide the best means of committing revolutionary suicide. He and his henchmen the the folks that he would talk to most about these things if you insiders considered gunshots. That wouldn't work. They were trying to think what we can it be done in done peaceably, they experimented on livestock different types of potions. And finally one night when Jones ordered his followers to drink punch that he said was laced with poison and would kill them, and they did it and didn't die. He congratulated them for showing true revolutionary spirit and congratulated himself that he now had proof when the time came most if not all of them would follow his orders and killed himself. So there is actually a tape about a forty minute tape of the final chapter in the peoples temple's history when he's convincing his followers that it's time to commit this reveller revolutionary act. That's not suicide. It's a revolutionary act and you hear him convincing people that they need to go along and drink this punch. And then he he says are there any dissenters and some people say, well, you told us that we could have a home in Russia if things fail here. So let's try the Russia option, and he says, no, no, no, that's not gonna work. And he explains why that's no longer going to work. And then you hear other people like saying that they don't wanna die. But then you hear people, and we'll hear some of this extra. We're going to hear you hear people thanking him in praising him and saying that they owe their lives to him. So let's hear some of the final moments in this surviving tape. Just before the members of this called drink. The poisoned punch. I.
