Trailing in the Polls and Time Running Out, Trump Looks for One More Comeback

"From his first day in office Donald Trump has been the shock-and-awe president, but it's possible with three weeks until election day that Mr trump has lost his ability to shock and awe us and with his poll numbers slipping what we've seen in the past week has been especially Trumpian. Even for president trump he told Americans not to let the coronavirus dominate their lives after he received access to treatments most Americans still can't get claim. There's now a cure for cova lengthy appearance on rush limbaugh's radio show appeared on another show for a so called virtual medical exam with a friendly Fox doctor in another city urged his attorney general to indict Joe Biden and President Obama successfully pressured secretary of State. Mike. POMPEO to agree to release Hillary. Clinton. Emails pulled out of covid relief talks then pulled back in and pulled out of the next debate then begged back in then it was canceled. Are we shocked are we odd or we shrugging our shoulders and shaking our heads? The flurry of activity is help to put the president in political peril in five battleground states two fivethirtyeight pulling average Joe Biden at fifty percent or higher. That includes Wisconsin Michigan and Pennsylvania. The three states that put Mr Trump over the top in two, thousand sixteen, and when you look at the other swing states, Biden is leading and everyone but Texas, and it's remarkable that we're even talking about Texas meaning that in one thousand, nine, hundred, Reagan landslide is not totally out of the question. Even now with the president cleared by his doctor to return to campaigning his sinking poll numbers have made fellow Republicans nervous about their own prospects in. November. I'm feeling great I don't know about your president trump trailing in the polls and increasingly erratic spoke to hundreds at the White House on Saturday his first public event. Since being hospitalized, we're starting very, very big with rallies still reeling from his faltering debate performance isolated in the White House. The president spent the week minimizing the virus. Don't let it dominate. You don't be afraid of it I think this was a blessing from God that I caught it. I'm telling you we have a cure more than just a therapeutic. We have a cure, any thirty, six, our conservative media blitz Mr Trump spent two hours on the phone with rush limbaugh? Tear. Me When I was coming down the the escalated, a beautiful golden escalators and take what was billed as an on camera medical examination with a Fox News contributor I've been retested and I know I'm at either the bottom of the scale free on Friday the president's top infectious disease expert. Lame. The Rose Garden ceremony two weeks ago for the White House outbreak, we had a super spreader. Event in the White House and it was in a situation. Where people were crowded together. We're not wearing masks at what point do you think you contracted it looking back? I don't know the they had some big events at the White House and Perhaps there. But this week, the president appeared to blame his infection on gold star military family they come within an inch, my face sometimes they wanna hug me and they wanna kiss me. Than they do and frankly. I'm not telling them. Back up as poll numbers drop, the president is searching for a political weapon publicly pressuring the Justice Department to Prosecute Democrats unless bill bar dates these people for crimes that the greatest political crime in the history of our country. Then we're going get little satisfaction unless I win and lashing out at Senator Comma Heron. Let's just monster that was on stage with Mike Pence Senate Republicans hoping to change the subject see Supreme Court nomination hearings this week as their only possible lifeline I'm going to lead the charge to confirm Judge Amy Barrett the court but Republicans. Worry. The Senate majority is at risk Senator John Cornyn told the Houston Chronicle this week that trump let his guard down and got out over his skis by playing down the virus threat

China says US has ordered it to close Houston consulate in what it calls a provocation that violates international law

"Breaking overnight. China says the U. S. Has ordered it to close. It's Houston consulate. What it's called a provocation that violates international law. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson said the U. S abruptly demanded the previous day the consulate cease all operations China, saying it will respond if the decision is not reversed in a statement. Early this morning. The State Department says it did it to protect intellectual property. Media reports out of the Houston area said authorities had responded to reports of a fire at the consulate. The Houston Chronicle, citing police said. Witnesses said people were burning paper. In what appeared to be trash cans that abrupt eviction coming the same day, the Justice Department accused to Chinese hackers of stealing hundreds of millions of dollars of trade secrets more recently targeting firm's developing a vaccine. For the Corona virus that was announced on Tuesday. Campaign targeted intellectual property and confidential business information held by the private sector. Including Cove in 19 related treatment, testing and vaccines. The hackers also targeted the online accounts of non government organizations and individuals, dissidents, clergy and democratic and human rights activists in the United States, China and Hong Kong. Into the indictment. These malicious cyber activities began more than 10 years ago and were ongoing as of the date of the indictment. During that time, the hackers stole terabytes of data from hundreds of targets, establishing themselves as a prolific threat to U. S and foreign networks. Activities outlined in the indictment are concrete examples of two concerning friends first. And one we've seen for some time. China is using cyber intrusions as part of its rob, replicate and replace strategy to technological development, Second and one that is perhaps less appreciated by the public and international partners. China is providing a safe haven for criminal hackers who, as in this case are hacking in part for their own personal game, but willing to help the state And on call to do so.

What's happening with the oil markets?

Clark Howard Show

What's happening with the oil markets?

"I WanNa talk about something that has confused people no end and that is what's going on with the oil markets which is causing the stock markets around. The world. Have a really really rough time. So here's the scoop and we alluded to this on the show. Last week is that it was possible. That oil would go negative that people would actually have to pay to have somebody take their oil. And that's an oversimplification. But the way commodities markets work is people buy and sell contracts on futures exchanges where they're guessing what the value is. Something is going to be the next month months down the road. And what's happening with oil right now? Is there such an enormous oversupply that nobody wants it? People who own the contracts or essentially having to pay people to take them over and so we have had a double whammy first. We had the thing that Putin so successfully engineered that massively over produced oil from Russia and then intern from Saudi Arabia as demand for the products that come out oil gasoline and the others fell off a cliff because of all the sheltering in place around the world what. Putin has been trying to engineer is to destroy the US energy market the US energy market had become the world's largest and the situation for us different than Putin and Russia and the Saudis. And some others is that costs us more to produce each barrel of oil using principally hydraulic fracking than it cost to get it easily. Accessible reserves that the Russians and the Saudis and some others can get too so hydraulic fracking costs. More to do then. Most any other method of producing oil out of the ground or pumping it out of the ground and so it normal prices for oil. Our producers are marginally profitable to not really highly profitable but enough they can make a living what Putin saw was an opportunity to destroy the some of the economic strength of the United States and to create more market share for Russia's oil. And so he's been able to do both by pumping way in excess. The amount of oil needed in the world make no mistake dictator. Putin is dedicated to harming the United States. That's what he's always been about. That's who he was when he was with the KGB when it was still the Soviet Union. And that's what he's still about so where we sit today is the effects of what. Putin unleashed has essentially worked and now the world is so awash in oil that the problem is nobody knows if we're going to have any place to store the excess as a result you're going to see one oil exploration company after another and one oil producer after another in the United States. Go Bust and that's what he wanted to do and that's happening now. Historically when that's happened the oil industry in the United States has always been a boom and bust industry. Putin's victory will be short-lived because even as companies get cleared out as competitors when oil's price recovers as people around the world more or less eventually. Go back to work. The oil price will get to a point where players will get out there and start exploring and producing oil out of the ground again in the United States. So right now. This is really hideous with taxes as I read one story in forget if it was the Houston Chronicle or the Dallas Morning News both follow the oil industry so much particularly the chronicle. Does that Texans think of themselves as energy producers not necessarily one particular type of energy and already in the Permian basin the core of where hydraulic fracking has been so successful. Companies are pivoting to producing energy from solar because the Permian Basin is one of the best places in the United States to efficiently produce sewer and it's extremely profitable to do so there so no that one of the things about American capitalism is when one door closes. American entrepreneurs are willing to take a risk on another. And I think you're going to see that the big pivot in Texas in West Texas is going to be the sole were for now. But let's talk about what this means to you and me and our wallets so the last trade for an a gallon of regular gasoline at wholesale spiff four cents the effective. That is that around the country. What we pay for gasoline once people start going back to work and get on the roads and more normal numbers. The savings to your wallet operates like a big tax cut so this is a complicated thing in that a sector of the. Us economy energy production is taking a body blow. You and I as consumers have been just eaten alive by Corona virus but there is a dividend for us as consumers is. We'll go to fill our vehicles. Is We go through months of trying to recover from Corona virus? We will pay much less for the fuel we put in our tanks. There's lots and lots of things that the United States can do to strike back at the Russians not militarily but economically and one. That may be confusing. But you'll likely hear more over the next. Few weeks is having a very high tax on oil imports since we have such a massive supply in the problem is a price side problem with no demand out there that if we create a price disadvantage for the Russians with the oil that would maybe flow into the United States. It provides a bit of protection our producers. The problem is that creates a conflict between what works best for you and me as consumers which is having a lower price per gallon of gas and then the other side what works best for the producers which is to have some protection from the hideous actions of dictator Putin.

Cowboys may use both tags on Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper

Cowboys may use both tags on Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper

"The final year specifies that each of the NFL's thirty two teams can use both the franchise and transition tags this particular offseason that historic guarantee. If you don't know what that is you know franchise in transition tags in general I mean we. We have all sorts of information if you really want to understand the depths of them but in general the franchise and transition tag are ways that NFL teams can protect players that are set to be free agents. If you don't WanNA player to hit free agency you don't want me hit the open market. Bam you slapped a franchise or transition tag on them and typically generally only one is available to each NFL team so you have to pick which player you want to place a franchise tag on right or transition. Whatever the movie and so the fact that all. Nfl teams would be able to utilize both of them. This offseason really served as an incredible asset for the cowboys wrote about this last year. We wrote about this in March. Nineteen how we talked about then. Hey next offseason. The cowboys could have this really awesome tidbit in the that was the title of the article. That could really help them. Because of the cowboys find themselves in a position and we we kind of forecast this year ago where they have three big players that new contract extensions that are set to be true free agents Dak Prescott Amari Cooper and Byron Jones. You knew that and so while you can shake combination however you want in all likelihood the Dallas cowboys were going to Franchise Tag Prescott because it seems incredibly unlikely that deal done before that happens. Before the franchise tag deadline and then they were going to place the transition tag on either Amari Cooper or Byron Jones. Whoever you believe more likely personally I believe it was Amari Cooper but that would prevent both of those players from hitting the open market. Which means the cowboys could protect them. That's a big deal in. It seems like in this again. My personal opinion and and other people it'd be to share these thoughts and certainly a lot of our readers and commenters and listeners but a lot of people had kind of sort of made the assumption that the cowboys have accepted that they're going to lose Byron Jones. And you know what I think. I think I speak for all of us. That are listening. Here we're all gathered around the campfire. You know what if the cowboys is Byron? Jones not ideal but at least they have Dakhil these they have. They can figure this out. Maybe they spend their first round. Pick on cornerback. Whatever not trying to get to far into those weeds but the ability to keep both deck and Amari was and is a gigantic advantage. That the cowboys have going for them. How ever if a new collective bargaining agreement is reached in so far again at the time of this recording. We have the half that the owners have to comply with if a new collective bargaining agreement is reached it will essentially rendered the ability for teams to use both tags moot and they will revert to normal circumstances where there can only place one tag on one player. Now if you have not out by now you need to know that this hypothetical world which is I would say somewhat imminent in somewhat inevitable based on the rates that the collective bargaining agreement is happening and again as we sit on Thursday night. There's so many players kind of tweeting that they don't like the new. Cba proposal and whatnot so there could be some back and forth but if this is finalized before free agency and there's still a couple of weeks and those are going to be very important weeks then. Dak Prescott has all of the leverage in the world and all of the leverage in the world and we touched on this at the end of Thursday's episode because if that's the case and you and I were representing Dak Prescott. Then guess. What our point in our proposal to Jerry Jones Stephen Jones in the cowboys organization? Hey Dude if you don't if you don't get a deal done with us if you don't give deck all the money's basically you're going to have to tag them we all know that and if you tag back guess what you cannot tag anybody else if you tag back. Guess what. Amari Cooper and Byron Jones are going to be true free agents. You're going to be competing with the market for them. That is not ideal and other cowboys went from a world where they were probably going to lose one of the two. Probably going to be Byron Jones right to now that could potentially lose both of them which which would be a complete and utter disaster. And you know you can. You can play hindsight's twenty twenty but if the cowboys had just up to their contract offer to Dak Prescott Uruguay. I mean. We're talking thirty. Three thirty four million dollars per year. Everybody freaked out about that last year. That would look like such a bargain out. That's what happens with these deals. We've talked about that Matt Ryan to use thirty million dollars annually. Everybody freaked out now. That looks super cheap. And if the cowboys had done that they would have the ability to use the franchise tag on either Amari Cooper or Byron Jones win this ultimate sort of hypothetical becomes a reality and they would theoretically only lose one. Maybe not even either. So now the cowboys win till the eleventh hour is going to cost them in a literal financial sense where they're gonNA have to pay Dak Prescott more money and it could cost them in the capacity that they are now going to lose Byron Jones. And maybe even Amari Cooper now I should say that there is a a ray of hope. I suppose because you know look you may think this and I don't mean new but I mean I mean other person the other person here my think Jerry Jones is just. You know the cowboys. They don't know what they're doing. They're messing up. But there is a possibility. Because Jerry Jones is typically a big proponent for things like this the specialty. Nfl adding another wildcard round and round and other wildcard teams. A seventeenth game that is upping the value for every NFL owner. Jerry Jones is obviously very involved when I was on. Espn San Antonio on Thursday. We head John Maclean from the Houston Chronicle legendary. Nfl reporter one of the best. Ever do it and I John. I said look you know. Is it possible? The Jerry Jones kind of knew that this was coming that he was going to lose his ability to use both tags and somewhat prepared. Here's John Maclean said on. Espn Antonio John. You mentioned the The franchise transition tag loophole. That may be filled up and unavailable to the cowboys. Now maybe I'm giving Jerry Jones and co a little bit too much of the benefit of the doubt here. But in your estimation do you think that they you know Jerry Jones at least and we don't know the way the votes win but that he would seemingly be at the very least somewhat in support of this which would negate the ability to tag to players if he did not have a plan in place to at the very least keep one or two of these. You know high price three free agents. They have Adak Amari. I'm Byron Jones before the Franchise. Tag deadline that that's a great point. Jerry Jones. One of the movers and shakers in driving this agreement and even though it could hurt him. But I think Jerry all along you can't keep everybody I expect them to Cape Prescott and probably Cooper if Byron Jones those on the market. He's got a chance to be is defensive defensive back in yesterday I think teams are going to line up to give him a record-breaking deal. I don't think they would do that. With the Mario Cooper. There's too many good receivers. It's a great year for receivers coming out the draft. It's a good year for corners. If you don't mean Horn and the top after the first round so say they let Burne Jones go say the replacing with a cheaper free agent or they go after a corner in the draft and they can even train them they might have their pick of all of them no big deal John Maclean said it was a great point no big deal deal no big deal but anyway I think that if you're looking again if you're trying to be positive trying to be optimistic. I think there are two things to note one is that this is not probably not a surprise to cut the cowboys. Brass right like they had to have known that the collective bargaining agreement could be You know a a new one could be struck and therefore the ability that they were potentially leaning on to utilize both tags would be rendered moods and so they had to potentially be prepared for that. Maybe they all prepared for that. Maybe the preparedness is the preparedness to lose both Byron Jones in Amari Cooper. Who knows the other thing is that Adam schefter head tweet about this where he said Some something to the effect of if there's a new CBA expect a flurry of roster moves. And it's possible that you know we. We've heard so much about how different players in different guys and especially quarterbacks are awaiting the new CBA strike new contracts because they want a piece of whatever. The new percentages that players are going to get and whatnot and so we'll see so it also is possible that maybe the deal lanes right after the new. Cba struck because maybe DAX team is waiting for a new CBA to all to make their move. So who knows? But that's the positive side of things if you're trying to be positive so it is what it

Dell Computers: Michael Dell

"Long before for anyone heard of the tech underpins like Mark Zuckerberg. Evan Spiegel ORC. Trina Lake back before it was fashionable to drop out of college to pursue your startup even before people used the term startup back in the ancient days of the one thousand nine hundred eighty s the dorm room miracle story. You've heard of was Michael Dell's now today. The company is enormous beyond enormous worth billions of dollars Dell has sold more than six hundred fifty million computers since Michael founded in one thousand nine hundred eighty four. And what's amazing about. This isn't the money it's not even the idea. What's amazing easing about all this? Well Michael Dell. Because he's not a backslapping sales guy. He doesn't come across as particularly charismatic. He's actually on the quiet side. Maybe even a little shy Michael grew up in Houston in the nineteen seventies was just as digital technology was taking off in that city with companies like Texas instruments and then later Compaq. His Dad was a doctor. His mom was financial consultant and the expectation was that Michael. Michael would become a doctor like his dad. But even from a young age Michael Dell felt pulled in a different direction he was into numbers. I mean I remember when I was small child. My Dad had this adding machine victor adding machines before the electronic calculator and I was was just fascinated that you could add up numbers with this machine and really big numbers and and it would make this like mesmerizing sound every time it did it and I just kind of love that and then I remember when I was about Seven or eight years old. I bought a calculator. I it was the first semiconductor based calculators and I was fascinated that this small machine could do complicated math problems so yeah I got I got very interested in this stuff it also turned out that about equidistant between my junior high school and our and our house there was a radio shack store and so when I was riding my bike home I could stop by the radio shack next door and see the you know early forms of the of the personal computer and hang out there until the kick me out of the store and were you you know like kind of entrepreneurial as a kid yeah I kind of liked business And I had all kinds of businesses is selling baseball cards Had A stamp auction. I got a job at a gold coin and jewelry store and I was to negotiate with people that were selling things and by those things the lowest possible price because the owner gave me Nia percentage of the cut and whether you also worked for the local paper for for some time. Yeah so I got this job. Working for the Houston is in Post newspaper. It doesn't exist anymore now. They think they combined with the Houston Chronicle. And my job along with hundreds of other mostly mostly you know. Teenagers was to call random people on the phone and try to sell them a subscription to the Houston Post newspaper and I observed three things the first thing I observed. Is that if you sounded like the people you were talking to. They were much more more likely to buy the newspaper from you like you. You put on a text like a heavy Texas accent. Yeah I'm not GonNa do it for you here but I think you can. You can use your imagination nation. Okay so second thing I heard was that people that were getting married. Were much more likely to buy the newspaper and then the third thing I observed is that people that were moving into a new house or residents were also far more likely to buy the newspaper. Well how did you Who was getting married and was moving in? Well you talk to them. You strike up a conversation you just call people and say and ask them about themselves. I guess this is like at that a time or perfectly happy to tell strangers personal details right. Yeah so I. I observed this and what I figured out is that in Texas. This is when you as many states when you want to get a marriage license you have to go to the county courthouse. It turns out this public information right and among the information that you give to the county court is the address you want the licensed sent to so so with this information. I devised a direct mail program where I sent letters to all of the people that had applied for marriage licenses in Sixteen County area surrounding Harris County. Which is where Houston Texas is is and I hired a bunch of my high school pals to go out to all these county courthouses and type the names in two small apple two computers and I sent a massive direct mail campaign to all those people that were applying to get marriage licenses and there were also at that time in Houston? There was a building boom. There were these very large apartment and condominium complexes that were going up and so I would go to these buildings under construction and sort of figure out who was in charge and say A. Hey I'm from the Houston Post newspaper and you know we've got this great offer where your new residence get the paper free for two weeks and all of these do is fill out the form. You're a high school student when you're doing this. Yes how much money did you walk away with. But I think it was about seventeen years old. I made a little over eighteen thousand dollars that year. This is like freakishly precocious of a of a high school senior. Like that's it's just weird that you would even no to think of doing those things I mean. Don't don't you think I didn't really think about it like that. I just it just seemed like a good idea so I was pursuing. You was working. I pull you things that didn't work but but that worked so I I kept doing eighteen thousand dollars. What did you do with that money? I mean that that must have been more money than you've ever seen in your life. I bought a BMW. So I wanted I wanted to. BMW Am. W what did the other students think of you. What did you have this reputation as like a business whiz kid in high school or or like? What did they anything about you? You know. I don't really know and I and I didn't really care So I I was sort of keeping myself and I had a few friends is but I I wasn't the most social of kids but you must have been somewhat social because you were going out and selling stuff to strangers rangers. Sure social enough to make the sale. Yeah so you are on the one hand doing this entrepreneurial stuff and then I guess you were also just really into computers. Yeah the original computer that I you know got my hands on at home was the same one everybody else had. which was the apple to apple to? Yeah Yeah and one of the beautiful things about the apple two was that all of the circuits were discrete circuits that you could understand so you could go in and start to play with those and modify them and reprogram the BIOS and upgrade the system and take it apart put it back together so something happened here around Nineteen Eighty one IBM introduced the IBM PC. And that was sort of a very important moment. Because if you dial back the clock to the late seventies early eighties in this company. IBM had a leadership of the part of the economy referred for to US Information Technology. Unlike any other company at any other time in history they were by far the dominant company so in Ibm mm-hmm introduced the IBM PC. This to me seemed to be a very important moment so I try to understand everything was going on about that and so when you took apart this. IBM PC that was selling for about three thousand dollars. As far as I could tell it was about six hundred dollars. It's worth parts. Wait you bought one and you took it apart just to check the insides out sure. Yeah Yeah what else would you do. So you gotta you gotTa take it apart. How how can you understand it if you don't take it apart philly? Most people buy computers to like you know at that time. He has to do basic you know accounting owning and word processing. You bought it to take part. Well I wanted to understand did and you know to understand it. You have to take it

"The Houston Chronicle he's been covering the recent storm and also how the city has struggled to implement some of the lessons learned in the wake of hurricane Harvey in two thousand seventeen my course thanks so much for joining us thank you so first of all how's the city doing today I mean are there still rescues how things work I don't know that there are a lot of rescues right now but things are still flooded on the east side because the water flows east and south of the golf there are plenty of areas where people can't really get back into their homes because they're still standing water but most of the city the water is drained away and people are recovering their possessions and looking for pets wouldn't surprise me if plenty of people are already marking and getting their houses it's not just Harvey Imelda we've had pretty severe flooding and at least some areas of the region every year since twenty fifteen so people are getting pretty proficient in cleaning out what else you about that I mean have there been infrastructure improvements since Harvey as you're telling us is this the sort of cycle of of flooding in sort of severe flooding has been going on since twenty fifteen has something changed in that time here it since this is seems to become more frequent. no there have not been significant infrastructure improvements since that storm county voters passed a two and a half billion dollar bond a year ago that these projects take time and Moster stone and and the design phase they haven't started construction and the city of Houston doesn't have a comparable funding source and so the city and county are both mostly waiting on federal aid for disaster recovery and that's been extremely slow to arrive he he help me understand this a little bit better here is there a political consensus in the area about what needs to be done does that exist probably mostly yes to that I think people agree that we need to do a more projects dig more detention basins xcelerated widening and deepening of the buyers the streams and rivers that run through the area I think most people are generally on the same page about that it's just a question of money but you gotta remember that our infrastructure even at current standards is only designed to accommodate maybe one or two inches of rain per hour in the county got four five six inches of rain in one hour and some areas got thirty inches in little more than a day when our reason usually the city usually gets fifty inches of rain in a year. no infrastructure system is going to be able to handle that kind of storm without flooding maybe people want rate for this conversation yet our people marrying the bigger conversation about climate change with the local conversation about infrastructure are people ready to talk about that I think the answer is broadly something government officials are talking about it I think there was the the kids climate strike that happened all over the world and I think even people who would reject the role of climate change and strengthening storms can't deny the new data that we have here from the the federal government that shows that there is statistical agreement that our understanding of what a severe storm was for this region was incomplete and before I let you go I wanna end up where we started which is on an individual level do you have any sense of whether this storm feels like a particularly wearing on people or do they see is just a part of life living in the area. there's a broad Max I mean there are some people who flooded three years in a row within the last five years who were spared yesterday and there are people who flooded yesterday who flooded six months ago I think it's a broad range across the region of people who are fed up they've had enough they're angry and they won out there are other people who can possibly imagine leaving the city there's other people who are stuck I mean they're in many low income neighborhoods you can't possibly tell whether the black mold is from ML the Harvey hi Allison and so you know I think that if there's any positive to and a lot of people sort of turn to the sense of community that is fostered when these.

Headline businessman refurbishes train cars, rents them out. From the back of a train the east Texas woods at night. Phil thrillingly mysterious traveling at seventy three miles an hour. There's barely time to register trees farmhouses dark bridges that appear and flash past. Suddenly, there's a small town in the dark sky lights up from houses stores and cars, and there's the weird sound of railroad crossing bells fading away almost before you hear them when I finish the sentence do up to reflect how you higher lower. But just thinking of all the questions that I have about this. Well, I know, but I need them at the end of my car. Very. Okay. No, no, just sitting on the back platform Houston businessman. Patrick Henry knows. He's having an experience view twenty-first-century Americans have shared, okay? Did you? I stood out here and think just how great life is says Henry, owner of the Warren are Henry and Evelyn Henry nineteen fifties era. Private train cars named after his parents. Okay. Since he bought a year ago the cars valued at a million dollars have been renovated to attract business and personal charters with elegant furnishings, gourmet meals, fine, China, and satellite television. Okay. This is really cool. And then he goes through all the rich people that that rent a rent it. You can still ride coast to coast on Amtrak which boasts dining and sleeping cars. But to experience. But to experience elegant train travel like or beyond what the finer trains once offered requires a private car. Yeah. Just scores still exist in the United States and are maintained for private use. Or for charter often by private owners. We met the train in. Oh, yeah. This is real interesting. Anyway, that's all I got. What'd you call about? I was just gonna tell you. I feel sorry for use. None of your social circle gets the red. I mean 'cause I can list off about ten places and got Ray. And Beaumont right now called her and. Mentioned veto Rourke. And it'll be a lot of people in there that will tell you. They got the rent asked Rato's Raoult's has the best billboard campaign on IT between Houston. You're right. That's a great campaign. Call my dad, and my uncle they get the rent ash probably every day, and we'll tell you that really. You think that's a golden triangle? Remember when they tried to switch it to the trap plex Metroplex. Oh, you're right. It was a try place. I'm sorry. Yes. I do. I remember how we were. And I can remember tuning in the evening news, KFI AM, Larry bowl, you and Cecile. And and they said triplex weather or try, and I remember day, they're trying, you know, my my my dad is very conspiratorial about the man, and it was sort of one of those oh trying to pull that over not take golden triangle from us not without a fight. We mustard we mustard down at the town square with our muskets and knives and makeshift uniforms into battalions. We were ready to we're ready to to take up the fight. Oh, well, there was an in in there were bumper stickers. What's so stupid is the golden triangle is how people knew that area. Triplex that you know, what it is. I'll tell you what it is. I experienced this in Houston. And it's sad. It's the fourth largest city in America. People have an insecurity about where they live their embarrassed. They've been told that the two coasts have all the sophistication. Well, the people in the golden triangle as bad as the people in Houston have a hang up about New York and LA people in the golden triangle have a hang up about Houston. So they're sort of they consider themselves sort of the poor cousins. So they're always trying to come. You know, change, the golden triangle to the triplex, and that some somehow gonna which was just stupid. Started that who who was does it. I think it was a Beaumont chamber of commerce. It was a business group in both. I think not Port, Arthur. But I think it was a business group in Beaumont. And it was it was it was probably it was people that wanted Beaumont to be perceived, as you know, as something other than a collection, then, you know, three little towns in that area Beaumont Laura's past it's it's it's interesting for people that don't know the history of of this region. Galveston and Beaumont have a much more glorious past pre nineteen fifty then then obviously than Houston. Does. There's a lot of grandeur in the architecture some of the old McFadden houses and some of those great great old architecture. Oh, you know what I read Ramon? Did I tell you about the book nineteen twenty seven one summer common? Nineteen twenty seven by Bill Bryson, which I just finished about a month ago. He tells the story that in nineteen twenty seven. Beaumont had six buildings of ten stories or more. And I believe that was more than Chicago. But that. Process that for a moment. I'm trying to think if they still exist. I don't know. Yeah. I don't know which ones they would I need to go back and sandy will be able to find that line. I believe it was more than Chicago. It was an amazing fact, but you gotta remember that's what three years or two years three years after spindle top. Yeah. There was a moment that Beaumont was a booming city on a national scale. People know that Detroit and New Orleans have have fallen from grace as you know, once top ten cities in America. But people don't realize what a big deal Beaumont was before. Houston was on the national scene. Yeah. And now, it's it's. Same better days. How much coffee you think Charles Clarke buys per year. Combined. I have no clue. I mean, it it's a easy thing to find out. If you think he spends two thousand dollars a year with you. Three thousand. Thirty thousand. He sells out much coffee. Just the Beezer all the place. All oh, yeah. For sure. Yeah. How much more does cost? Then what what a run of the mill restaurant would say you're gonna make me like get into some type of pitch and give you the angle about watch. It's coffee number one. So the most expensive coffee is is, you know. Thirty cents so significantly more as product costs than then folger's. Yeah. But it's not apples to apples.

"Arms around you with those sleeves and time off in the backs. You're giving yourself a hog Houdini basely came up with the method. I mean, there's just a sort of standard method for escaping these. But the thing is he would say and to make it even more difficult on myself. I'm going to skate this while I'm upside. Down and they'd tie rope to his legs and hoist them up on a crane, and he'd be dangling the spectacle of him dangling up, you know, against the side of a building, by the way Houdini if you had a choice of venue for this came into the town would make sure that he was hung up right next to the newspaper's office. Right next to outfits of the Houston chronicle. He's doing this for fun market. Yes. The process was was twofold. The first thing was when they were putting the straight jacket on him. Houdini would use a whole bunch of techniques to give himself a whole lot of space inside the straitjacket. You know, is there s they're sort of wrapping his arms, you can sort of hold some of the cloth and pinch it inwards. And then when when they when you let go now, you have a lot more slack. He makes sure to fold his arms over like, not just not one arm more towards his head of more towards, you know, his feet, but to actually fold his arms own standard staggered is. And so then when he moves his arms, he has more slack. See wanna give one at basically make it so in they're putting the Joe also take a huge breath expand your body big your chest as big as you possibly can to give yourself more space and slack to work with then once the jacket is on he. He would take his stronger arm. His right arm, basically to get one arm up over your head because then you can untangle the sleeves and get your sleep in front of you. And so once you do that, then it's just a matter of getting all the the belt sundown. So you wanna give yourself as much slack as possible sin? Get one arm up over your head hanging. Upside down turns out that it's actually a lot. Pulling down your whole body. So to get your arm over your head, all your bones are sort of being pulled down. So it's way easier when you're suspended. To get your hand over your head and in the straitjacket, and when you also probably masks all the wriggling, and you know, or clutching. Yeah. Rushing around, and he's dangling, and he's going left and right. And it looks amazing. Yeah. There's a little bit of trickery in terms of giving yourself as much slack as possible in the methods by which might do that. But like a lot of it was just practicing this series of moves and being able to be get out of it. Yeah. Just the mental focus too of just to stay home and nights panic while that was yes.
