Poison, a Drug Information center says the stuff contained methanol, not a chemical normally used for sanitizers, either people trying to make it at home and sell it and or even larger companies producing it and just not knowing the correct way to produce, Roland says. If you're a parent, watch your Children around sanitizers, especially the ones that air scented or in colorful bottles. And call poison control.

"Andrea Bocelli. He is polarizing however apparently while he is a competent singer with a unique sound, he is not considered a real opera singer because his voice is very strong and he doesn't have a lot of control. So The New York Times Music critic Bernard Holland noted quote quote the tone is rasping thin an general poorly supported even the most modest upward movement thins at even more signaling would appears to be the onset of strangulation. I heard he's not even blind. To his credit Mr Buccellati sings mostly in tune but his phrasing tends toward carelessness and rhythmic jumble. The diction is not clear. Furthermore, he observed that quote the critics duty is to report that. Mr Bowe Shelly is not a very good singer. which is like scandal at my aunt Donna. would be up in arms harsh. She heard that here's the other thing that I learned about Andrea Bocelli this insane he convinced. The government of his hometown. To, create bilden create the Theocro Cilento the theater of silence. So he performed it's an outdoor theatre, performs there once a year and then every other three, hundred, sixty, four days, it remains empty and silent. So he built, he made them build an entire theater just for him to sing in it once a year, and then no one else is allowed to use it, which is like what you're crazy. Anyway. Question number seven this saint, one of the patrons of Italy along with Catherine of Sienna is also best known as the patron saint of animals and who pope frank took his people name from who is the saint. Saint Francis of Assisi. Yes Saint. Francis of Assisi, he became a saint just two years after his death in twelve twenty eight. Very quick. Yeah. By Pope Gregory the ninth just as an FYI also after pope frank was elected the night he took a bus back to his hotel with the cardinals rather than be driven in the car. So Pope Frank is now the pope and it's fine. I'll take the bus nope no big deal. Love Pope Frank. Question Number Eight, true or false famous italian-american Robert.

Antebellum's DirectorsWe Made A Slave Movie

"I watched the film twice because. It was compelling and I kind of had to like see it a second time after I've seen the twist and all that Sorta good stuff So a lot to talk about why this film now. Well, you know. We'd like to say that it was it was strategic but it but it wasn't about. SIX MONTHS DR moved to La for Miami I had this horrific nightmare that I think. was probably precipitated by the death of my father. Bit, less than a year prior that I was having some problems processing. And in this nightmare. This woman who was eating. was so desperate for help that it felt as though she was screaming across dimensions to reach anybody. And when I when I awoke from the nightmare. It didn't feel like anything that I had experienced before. It was within the the Brandon category of what would you call dream or nightmare, but it definitely felt like something other worldly like an ancestral visitation. And the next day Christian from I talked about it and ended up writing the short story because that's our process. And the natural writing the short story. We wrote the script that is now a antebellum. So you know for us as part of the work that we've done up to this moment, we've always felt like. All of the work that we were presenting or that we're trying to percent. Of that, there was an urgency of now and that that. The world in America has been. Careening. Toward disaster. And so yeah I mean we we never imagined in a million years that anything that we would create would be just for entertainment sake but that it is it is art. To, activate into catalyze a national dialogue around a host of issues. Not least of which is race in America. But without finger-wagging. you guys are co directors right and that's unusual to my experience and the last pair of CO directors. I remember the Hughes Brothers where there was a clear delineation of like I do this sort of stuff. I, this sort of stuff is there a division of labor or you guys kind of like one? Group. We pretty much. You know act as one onset were always together in the same space, which is super important because otherwise you know production designer or Qassams Zainur will come up to one of US nasty question we have to kind of be central in the same place but. What what helps us as a directing duo is that were also writing duo so that we kind of are able to have all of those knock down drag out. Battles on the creative in our own home. As writing the by the time we get onset we really have one vision at were were super. I mean within the duo is there a division? Is there I'm a little bit more this. I'm a little bit more that. I think. We've been together for twelve years and so we speak a telepathic shorthand. I don't know that we could be objective in saying that one is a little bit more this or that I think. I think. An outside observer would have to get you that answer as far as we're concerned we are we are. It's Qismat and we're we're we're certainly would have connected on on levels that feel we normal most writer director. duos were also a couple. So it's like everything is really on. Utilized.

I got suspended from the football team, and I believe they were Children are first responders. They ran onto the field before Friday night's game, carrying the first responder flags They have since been re reinstated on the team. What a surprise. Once the country found out how idiotic that was. The kids are back on the team. I want to know who it is in the administration that told these two kids on 9 11. You can't carry those. You should be able to carry those flags on the field every Friday night if you want But somehow now showing support for law enforcement is controversial and politically incorrect.

"Stabilized approach for landing is based on the pilots interpretation of certain visual clues for every three nautical miles flown over the ground the aircraft should descend one thousand feet but pilots must control speed, calculate descent rates and use precision instruments to ensure they're not landing too high to fast or out of alignment with the runway. FAA researchers are testing pilot reactions to various approach and landing scenarios by putting actual pilots into flight simulators at the William. J Hughes Technical Center the simulators can be programmed to mimic different conditions. Information is collected about the pilot's ability to recover, and whether the pilot had adequate data in the cockpit to make safe decisions about landing. The research will help determine the kind of training pilots need and the effectiveness of new instruments in the cockpit because a stabilized approach and landing is the best way to avoid a loss of aircraft control for innovation.

Checks out there on tells them a joke, his jet, which I do justice to the topical joke. Set just before the lockdown. Some people were lucky to get flight back to England from abroad and they were in the streets and they're excited if the captain came on the calm and said flight arriving Heathrow at six thirty pm I'm currently working from home that was very cries joked that I got from my birthday. So I thought I'd chat with you. I didn't do it justice do much better the bank. And yeah. A I've got a lot to tell you about before. We saw I'M GONNA. Talk to you about boiled eggs because we had boiled soft boiled eggs breakfast the other day, and we don't do that too. Often it was my birthday stanchly and I hadn't realized until quite recently the way my wife opens boiled eggs is a blast for me and against all Garden Night Jeff. This is why you should really get to know someone properly before you marry them and me and my wife and had four years of coating including two years of living together and that was not enough time I should have waited until I knew. Of properly marry in haste repentant leisure I. Know There's a Gulliver's travels about a society at war over which way up aboard extra tomato. That's ridiculous is crazy to go to war over something that trivial what my wife does is way worse and I think justifies a nuclear strike robin the way we abroad does matter which way you just off the top off and then you're in right my wife, she taps it with a spoon like a hard boiled egg pails and starts peeling off all the bits individually isn't a hardboard soft boiled egg and she's doing this and all the legs are ending up on a plate where soldiers are. Getting in the egg. And now you wondering how you avoid getting all those bits caught up in when you dip it in your in your mouth and the answers you don't she's insane and the are married to, and now there's no way out of this. I think, I'd have the strength to get through all of this but the problem is that without noticing she has taught my kids that that is the correct way to avoid all day. She's Pastas cuss onto another generation they won't listen to me and do it the proper way like I tell them and I can't prevent them how I prevent them ending up with a mouthful of eggshell. If I was a younger man I would just leave this broken family and try again to meet a woman eat soft boiled eggs correctly but it's too late. Perhaps, I can uncondition the at least the youngest one. But I don't think. So all I can do to try to intrigue to any of you are married not to make the same mistake idea to please usual coaching time. Properly, I also discovered on my birthday that my wife didn't know what flying ants they was. They was flying ants coming out of staff at the back of my mother-in-law's house nobody in my wife's family knew that that was the thing and what's flying and they were flying they'd never seen them before they did know was a special day.

It's an incredibly important valued and I have to say, I really do love actors. What they do is amazing to share stories ideas of the other ways of being with the world. I do also remember that my life was spent with a space at least sitting on the kitchen table drinking cups of tea because I wasn't much work. We eat out the cups of tea but it was fun. You know what a way to grow up. So we just talked that's all we did is we just talked and talked, and towards the night in there they hoped they would get work. So so I loved acting. I did think it probably wasn't that the my sensible way to social choice via historian which is. Really. Lucrative. White just to spend your life. I it was. It was A. I was GONNA say was really.

Sleeping Soundly and White Grapefruit

"The. Forbidden Fruit. The, smaller Schadeck. One of the Seven Wonders of Barbados. The grapefruit has been called many things in its history. And compared to the lemon or the orange. The grapefruit is a fairly recent addition to the citrus family. It was first spotted on the island of Barbados in seventeen. Fifty. By. Reverend Griffith. Hughes who documented his find in his book the Natural History of Barbados. Now, the genetic origin of the grapefruit is actually a hybrid mix. One, ancestor of the grapefruit was the Jamaican sweep orange. which is itself an ancient hybrid of Asian or inns The other was the Indonesian Pummel. One story of the fruits origin is that a certain captain attic brought Pablo seeds to Jamaica and bread the first fruit. Although it's more likely that it probably originated as a naturally occurring hybrid between the two plants sometime after they had been introduced there. The grapefruit like all citrus fruit is a Hispanic them or a large modified berry with a thick rind. And was known only as the shattuck until the nineteenth century. So, how did it come to be known as the Grapefruit As it turns out. It's a relatively new occurrence. The first etymology of the name grapefruit is from an eighteen fourteen book by John Lunen where it was said to have the name because of its resemblance in flavor to the grape. But that doesn't really make sense because anyone who's tasted a grapefruit knows that that isn't true. Most scholars think that he was just attempting to explain the origin of a name he ran across. The most popular belief for where the name comes from is that it actually refers to the shape of the fruit not the. Grapefruits grow on the tree in clusters, which often are said to appear similar to grapes. But there are only a few other languages that make the leak between grapefruits and grapes. In Romance Languages. Grapefruit usually shares the same name as its ancestor. The pomerleau. For example, pomp them Oh in Italian and pump Mussa and Spanish. In, fact Romanian is the only romance language to distinguish between the two. A. Few other languages have also adopted the American word grapefruit even though they don't have the same word for grape. Examples of these are Dutch Swedish and Turkish. But this has led some etymologists chiefly John Cardi to suspect that grapefruit is also named after the Pomerleau. The Pablo, scientific. Name. Is Citrus Maxima. which can reasonably be translated as great fruit. A reference to both the Pablo and the fruit size. After a few decades that may have gotten corrupted into grapefruit. But we may never really know for sure. Unlike other earlier citrus fruits like the orange, the lemon and the lime the grapefruit received a rather cold reception. Although already swimming and citrus at the time most fruit lovers and Florida found the grapefruit to be too sour to enjoy on a regular basis. As a result, it was not widely planted when the Florida citrus industry was rapidly expanding. In fact, the grapefruit was just considered an exotic novelty fruit until the late nineteen twenties.

"That's one version of what went through Nixon's head prior to Watergate anyway and the version that Watergate Senate investigators believed while it's impossible to say for sure that the Howard Hughes money was the primary motivator behind the crime. The theory does check out after all one man buying both. The Republican president in the DNC chairman was bound to lead to chaos Howard Hughes was so paranoid and power hungry that he catalyzed one of the worst crises in American political history in his book citizen Hughes which focuses on Howard's involvement with Watergate reporter Michael Draws in characterizes Howard as the portrait of Dorian Gray Dorian Gray here being the broad corruption plaguing American politics and the time of Richard Nixon Howard was far from the only player involved in the Watergate scandal but his declining physical and mental state reflected just how ugly things had gotten in Washington long before the cracks started to show at the White House and in his late sixties. He was declining even more quickly. His body was covered in bed sores. He was excruciatingly thin malnourished and his mind perhaps most of all was increasingly teetering into a chasm of delusions. He wasn't just watching movies now. He was watching them on repeat namely his favourite film. Ice Station Zebra a nineteen sixty eight spy thrillers set in the Arctic which he watched over one hundred fifty times and also his least favourite of the films he made as head of our. Ko Nineteen fifty six's flop the conqueror. He reportedly spent millions of dollars buying up every copy in existence just as he'd once tried to bury swell Hogan his first film but this time instead of hiding away the copies he said to have watched the movie every night before going to bed his personal projectionist of course wearing a blindfold so only Howard would see the screen. He was also reportedly completely unable to grasp the Watergate situation as it unfurled between nineteen seventy two and nineteen seventy four. The products of his Labor had escaped him on April fifth. Nineteen seventy six. At seventy years old he died. He was flying from his final residence. The Acapulco Princess Hotel in Mexico to the Methodist Hospital in Houston his hometown. The cause of death was kidney failure which had been exacerbated. Thanks to decades of drug use and likely Howard's pension to refuse the advice of his doctors as one of them put it. He made his own decisions about anything. How Berry Howard Hughes in the end Howard was a man of his times from start to finish a Hollywood wonder canned when the movies were the beating heart of an enthusiastic young nation. A pilot when flight was the fresh exciting frontier of human achievement. A man of integrity and power when in the postwar world America was beguiled by its own wealth and power a corrupt power hungry delusional man when the country realized it couldn't trust its leaders but like most people whose glorious beginnings lead to appalling ends. Howard's dark tendencies were there from the beginning. That's the case with the next man were covering in falls from grace to Roman Polanski like Howard. He was beloved.

"As Howard explained. It wasn't that he wanted one particular favor from a given politician. He wanted power and control. That would be there whenever he needed it. He wanted the government on his payroll and while he didn't succeed in hiring the entire Kennedy Organization. He did succeed in getting Larry. O'brien Bobby Kennedy's campaign manager into his book. Keeping a useful man to have in your pocket considering he'd go on to be the head of the DNC but not all of the politicians Howard Hughes sponsored loved his association with that organization. Which brings us to Richard Nixon Howard Hughes supported Nixon throughout his political career. As far back as Nineteen fifty-six when Nixon was Vice President Howard had loaned the Nixon family would amount to more than one point five million dollars today Nixon's brother. Donald used the money to bail out his failing fast food. Chain of course usually when one gives alone it's secured with something of equivalent value for example a mortgage which is secured on the value of your home and of course eventually repaid hughes loan to the Nixon's meanwhile was secured with an empty piece of land valued at thirteen thousand dollars a fraction of the loan value and was never repaid as in. It sounds a whole lot more like a gift then alone no strings attached or perhaps with few strings as soon as the money had changed hands. The IRS approved the Howard Hughes Medical Institute as a tax exempt charity after twice previously having declared it he device for siphoning off otherwise taxable income. This suspicious so-called loan made its way into the press in the final days before the nineteen sixty election when Nixon was first running for president and the scandal may have impacted his chances in the hotly contested race as he put it. I must have answered questions about the Hughes Loan. At least a hundred times the media the story and played it up big because it was so damaging to me still it did nothing to cool Nixon's appetite for Hugh's money during the nineteen sixty eight election season Nixon and Howard connected once again this time. The Hugh's money tying them together was a cool one hundred thousand dollars about seven hundred and fifty thousand dollars today and instead of going right to the Nixon family. It went to a bank account in the name of Charles. Beebe rebozo close associate. In confidante presumably the purpose of this unofficial campaign gift was a personal nature. Nixon could get it from Rebozo when he needed it for his private expenses. As for Howard. It seems to have proven useful too. Soon after the money changed hands. He weasel his way out of some legal issues with his Air West Takeover. He'd been indicted for conspiring to manipulate the airline stock defrauding shareholders of sixty million dollars and airline which it's worth noting was the beneficiary of multiple route franchises and mail subsidies this time the money carefully concealed in rebozo account. Didn't make its way to the press and Nixon finally sailed into the White House. He was sworn in as president on January twentieth nineteen. Sixty-nine meanwhile in Nineteen Seventy Howard gave up on Nevada. He didn't like the nuclear tests that the government were running in the desert to spite his petitions to have them stopped or the fact that despite his extraordinary wealth and power there were other wealthy powerful players bidding on Las Vegas. Perhaps it's no surprise that a man so obsessed with power and control would wanna find somewhere where he'd be the only big fish around. He was waffling between Mexico. And the Bahamas. He wasn't sure which would allow him greater political influence. Has He put it in a memo? Please consider the problems in obtaining empire status in the end. It was the Bahamas despite Howard's lifelong racism and as a result his distrust of a black government paradise island seemed like his only escape from the constant threat of nuclear contamination and rivals in Nevada on November twenty fifth nineteen seventy. He was carried out of the desert in via the fire escape by his Mormon AIDS wearing clothes for the first time since he arrived for years earlier Blue Pajamas. He was six foot four. And just over one hundred pounds emaciated after years of lying in bed and picking it food his hair. Meanwhile was almost twenty four inches long uncut for years. Sorry sight one that would have shocked the media and the mini politicians. He bribed for power and influence at both the DNC and in the Republican White House. This was the man behind the curtain. The man pulling the puppet strings but no one got a chance to see him. He was ushered into an unmarked van under cover of darkness then carried onto a private jet and finally to another Ninth Floor Hotel Penthouse this time in the Britannia Beach Hotel on Paradise Island.

"For Howard. The obsession fueling. His tissue compulsion was a growing tear of germs. He'd been fearful of germs for a long time avoiding handshakes even in his early years in Hollywood but now his nervous distrust had grown into a full blown terror. Another compulsion that may have emerged during Howard's initial period of isolation in nineteen fifty. Eight was the fifty two year olds need to constantly watch movies their various explanations for it. Some commentators think he was studying the craft of filmmaking others have suggested he was trying to take his mind off of the physical pain. That never went away after his nineteen forty six crash despite the coding but while he may have felt either or both of these motivations Howard's constant and insistent need to have films playing certainly fits the bill a compulsion to when fifty two year old Howard finally emerged from the theater at the end of the summer of nineteen fifty eight. He hadn't washed trimmed his nails or cut his hair and he wasn't ready to now either. He continued many of the habits. He'd cultivated in the theater at the Beverly Hills. Hotel in a pink bungalow where despite his own filth he became even more obsessed with germs. The danger after all came from outside not from him it was about contamination about the uncontrollable outside getting in and hurting him so he established some rules I he designated the select group of people who are allowed to deal with him personally or even handle anything he planned to handle this rapidly shrunk to a small crew of Mormon aides who Howard reportedly liked because they worked hard live clean and didn't drink every move this carefully selected group was governed by an ever growing hyper specific procedures manual to see Howard. They had to go through a thirty minute. Purification ritual called processing hands had to be washed four distinct and separate times using lots of lather each time from individual bars of soap. Then supplicants had to dawn. White cotton gloves. Often they'd enter Howard's bungalow to find Howard sitting naked with nothing but a pink. Beverly Hills Hotel Napkin on his laugh. Once in his room they were forbidden from touching Howard directly. Instead they did things like pick up his memos about business matters or cap jars of his urine which he demanded be stored in his Bel Air Garage. He couldn't bear to let it go. It was his. It belonged to him. The more AIDS weren't the only ones subject to Howard's rules his wife. Jean didn't escape his ever heightening. Need for control either. She wasn't invited into bungalow number four. She was kept in her own bungalow. She was highly discouraged from leaving the hotel and when she did go out. She was instructed to go out with an escort the escort. Meanwhile was equipped with detailed memos about her care for example. When going to the theater they were instructed. If necessary to open the doors entering the theater or closing the doors do so with the feet. Not The hands if it is necessary or common procedure to enter the theater with her to lower the seat for her. Do so with Kleenex. While Howard's obsessive controlling behavior was evident from his earliest days in Hollywood. He clearly took a turn for the worse in Bid Nineteen fifty eight for the much worse. It's not excessive to characterize the shift as a mental breakdown but if that much is clear the reason for this mental breakdown is a more difficult question to answer it. We have to look back to the period preceding nineteen fifty eight and do a bit of speculation in his Book Citizen. Hughes Michael Draws in argues that the breakdown was likely triggered by Howard sense that he was losing control through the nineteen fifties while from the outside he may have appeared on top of the world. His wealth ever-growing his status as a Hollywood legend cemented. In fact he was losing some of the direct control. He'd always cherished I. The Pentagon forced him to give up personal management of aviation company Hughes aircraft in the wake of his nineteen forty seven spruce goose scandal then in nineteen fifty five. He had to sell off our. Ko The dying studio system and internal conflict. Made it an untenable business. Next in nineteen fifty seven. Howard's chief accountant Noah. Dietrich quit his job he'd managed Howard's business affairs for over thirty years serving as something of a surrogate father. His loss felt like abandonment and betrayal. Finally there was Twa Howard's airline. He needed more investment for the company but the bankers wouldn't give the money without increased control over the business as draws and it. It was all too much. Everything was slipping through Howard's fingertips and he couldn't contain everything the way he'd contain the fallout of Swell Hogan it had all gotten too big hence the breakdown. The rapidly accelerating paranoia 's and obsessive compulsive behaviors. What he could control he would control few people. Outside of Howard's immediate circle understood that sure Howard Hughes had disappeared from the public eye gone recluse that was a bit eccentric and of course. His enormous wealth cut two ways on the one hand. It helped maintain a glamorous mystique around his disappearance from public life on the other. It added a sinister air to his disappearance. Suddenly the man behind the empire was simply a question. Mark and in fact for all Howard's paranoia about losing control of his empire in strain secretive behavior. He would only get richer in nineteen sixty. Six powered was still spending the large majority of his time secluded at the Beverly Hotel. It's likely that he couldn't come out of that. Seclusion to appear in court and fight for full control over his airline. Twa So Howard Hughes. Sold for five hundred and forty-six million dollars. It was to date the largest check to ever go to a single individual which brings us to the darkest most dangerous way Howard Hughes was grasping at power in his fight for control and ultimately safety he was using his enormous wealth to by the US. Government COMING UP. Howard shakes the very foundations of American democracy. Now back to the story in nineteen fifty eight at the age of fifty two. Howard Hughes began suffering from an apparent mental breakdown and it didn't get better his lifelong tendency towards obsession and a need for control spiraled to new extremes as he hid away from the world in Beverly Hills Bungalow number four only seeing a small group of Mormon Aids but all the while his wealth was growing culminating in a nineteen sixty six by out of his airline TWA which left him with five hundred. Forty six million dollars in easy cash. Today that's equivalent to almost four and a half billion and that was far from his whole fortune powers wealth enabled his mental illness in many ways it allowed him to hire the people he needed to take care of or control. His wife had bought him. Twenty four seven attention from his Mormon aides who tended to his anxiety fueled need it ensured that he was left undisturbed at the Beverly Hills Hotel by either hotel staff or nosy outsiders and in nineteen sixty six. He used his new windfall to switch to a new more secluded hideout the desert in in Las Vegas which he eventually purchased outright ensuring total control over his environment but he knew his money could do more by him more power more safety so he started scooping up Vegas Real Estate Casino after Casino. He wanted to run the city while still living in near complete isolation but there was a small problem. Las Vegas is governed by antitrust laws. One man wasn't supposed to own a whole casino on his own much less seven. So Howard doubled down on the classic rich. Man's way out. Showering politicians was money. But Howard didn't care about political parties and he didn't care about keeping his gifts on the official campaign contribution list. He was happy to pay for whatever a politician needed paid. Whether those expenses were personal or political in Nevada he used these practices to get in with the state. Governor Pawlak Salt and then to circumvent antitrust laws but his ambitions didn't just stop with Nevada politicians to truly secure his little desert empire. He needed national influence. He saw an opportunity for that. In nineteen sixty eight. When Democratic presidential candidate Senator Robert Kennedy was assassinated Hughes? Wrote the following memo to his chief. Bag Man in fixer Robert. Mayhew I see here an opportunity that may not happen again in a lifetime. I don't aspire to be president but I do want political strength. I want organization so that we would never have to worry about a Jerky. Little thing like this antitrust problem not in one hundred years kind of setup that if we wanted to could put governor lack salt in the White House in nineteen seventy two or seventy. Six later he clarified. What exactly he wanted mayhew to do with this opportunity. I want us to hire Bob. Kennedy's entire organization. I am not looking for political favors from them. I repeat. I don't want an alliance with the Kennedy Group. I want to put them on the payroll.

He started seeking out young. Starlets or Wannabe starlets. He'd sign them to exclusive contracts and then place them in bungalows where their diets were monitored and they were forbidden to date.

Jean Peters she was twenty one years his junior but in nineteen fifties Hollywood or even nineteen fifties America in general. This was not dreadfully unusual behavior.

He didn't like that he'd always been racist since his turn of the century Texas childhood and perceived black people as dirty. He wouldn't a screening room with them so Hughes announced to his aides that he wanted to screen some movies at a new location no sex projections studio on Sunset Boulevard. He entered the dark room alone. Shut the door and started the movies rolling. Then for the next three months he stayed there in screening room at first he wore a white shirt and Tan slacks often talking with his lawyers and bankers on the phone to check in about Business Affairs. Then slowly he stopped the calls. He stripped off his filthy clothes and he announced to his aides. Don't try to get me for anything. Wait until I call you. I don't want any messages handed to me. In this state of increasing isolation and Filth Howard did have some company surrounding him. Were Kleenex boxes. He used the tissues to wipe down the surfaces around him and the boxes he continually stacked and restocked these were habits he would retain throughout the rest of his life and are one reason for later speculation that he suffered from severe obsessive compulsive disorder or OCD. Perhaps it's fitting that when he disappeared into the dark of the theater. He told his wife. Jean Peters that he was in the hospital getting treated for an undiagnosed disease.

Marvin laskey joins us now to set up this interview with Donna? Rice Hughes Marvin. Welcome her jill. Will you address some heavy topics in this interview? Give us a quick rundown of Hughes's story how has got worked in and through some pretty harrowing decisions. She made as a young adult will remember three weeks ago. We talked about the J curve. Where in the Christian life you have to descend to asset donnas the great example of that she had a really bad year back in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven. Nineteen eighty-eight Gary. Hart was the front runner for the Democratic presidential nomination and reporters tracked her down spending a night with heart. Still not quite clear what went on there but she was suddenly. Miss Scandal Queen and her life was a total mess. She now looking back at it. Says it was a god thing because over the years she learned more about who she is who God is and with enough is enough an anti pornography group. She is really helping lots of parents. Lots of kids to avoid getting into the type of Mesh. She was getting in to tell us a little bit more about that. So so the focus of a lot of her work is making people aware of the dangers of pornography. How does she go about that? She tries to help the church basically get his head out of the sand and pay attention to how omnipresent in our society pornography is and what the consequences of that are. This is hard as as journalists world. We dive into all kinds of subjects. Some which are not very pleasant but we haven't reported above pornography all that much we need to because it is so big in our society just like the the knee bones catcher to the thighbone pornography is a bad thing in itself but it leads to marriage problems and marriage problems lead to church problems in church problems lead to salvation problems so the omnipresence of pornography is something we don't want to deal with but we have to deal with has an editor. I'm not quite sure what to do. I don't want to assign a young reporters to the subject as parents. It's hard to know what to do because it's everywhere. It's not just in a combat zone the suiting anymore. It's it's a click or two clicks away on a computer. So what do you do? It's really hard. It certainly is pervasive. I mean it seems like something that affects young facts old and it has ramifications for everybody in our society What is something that stood out to you and this interview? What a lovely person she is. She is thoughtful smart. There's a lot of empathy. She has for people who get trapped into situations as as she herself was trapped in lots of ways and she wants to help college students and others to connect the dots. Anti-trafficking is really hot subject on college campuses. These days and there are lots of Christian students who get involved in campaigns to try to stop trafficking and help prostitutes get out of the misery their fallen into at the same time on college campuses if you campaign against pornography you're seen as old fashioned some with doughty. This is really bad. Donna points out that the distinction between those two is not very much because pornography leads to trafficking pornography fuels demand for prostitution. She fights it. She fights in a way that is hard because anyone who is an anti pornography campaigner is often treated by journalists as someone who is trying to take away fun. Well it's not fun. It's misery.

"On this week's episode of as me with Sinead. I have the great privilege of talking to somebody kind of on the other side of the world. I'm at home in Ireland. We're in the middle of DEMOC as I imagine you are too. It's touched all of the corners of the world. And I talking to somebody who I have admired what feels like since time immemorial but really for a very long period they are a writer and a podcast and somebody who uses comedy to disarm the world and educate them simultaneously in a way that I can only learn from deign to be like this week's guest of as was tonight is the extraordinary credible Akilah Hughes. Akilah thank you so much for being part of the show. Thank you so much. Wow that is the biggest compliment and honestly it feels weird to take any like you know credit for anything. The messed up. So thank you I feel like my self esteem just woke up. They're like Oh we're allowed to feel good as it should and yours should be inflated beyond measure but I'm conscious that in terms of that description of you comes from my own lens but how do you describe yourself personally and professionally. Yeah I mean kind of just I'm a writer and comedian. Podcast hosts in former issued tuber. Maybe go back. But I think that like if there's a way to still what I try to do. It's just like you know. Point OUT HYPOCRISIES IN POWER STRUCTURES. And like you know make a stronger. Social commentary that focuses on what people are missing. I just try to point out the thing that people are just like just glossing over when they talk about different topics so yeah I try to be just a patient observer of the world and then kind of throw it back in his face. How did you practice the skill of becoming a patient observer the world? Well I think it. Kinda just happened to me so a little bit of background on my life. I grew up in Kentucky so as much as this is a world away. I'm in Los Angeles right now. You Know Kentucky is a completely different world right. It's not like you know the Internet was pop in there. The same time it started happening. You know in places like Dublin or la or New York. It was kind of place that time forgot in a lot of ways and so I think when you have sort of a slower culture in terms of just like how fast we get our information. There was the space and time to really like analyze the different things that were happening in my area. You know from adjusted standpoint from a ridiculousness template from a very country standpoint and I think that was how I sort of got my point of view it was like Oh we have nothing but time to sit around and drink lemonade on the porch. Let's like point out the weird stuff that's happening and make jokes to pass the time. And who is your support system in that time that instigated those conversations with you or also felt that the culture need to be questioned and critiqued while my mother. So you know I think growing up black in a state that's not especially diverse like Kentucky is probably more diverse than a few like really northeastern states in America. But it's a pretty homogeneous state and so. I think that there is a baked. In sense of you know insiders and outsiders and us and them and you know when you grow up being sort of them and your your parents grow up being a them. It's much more common to have conversations that feel a little bit more honest and maybe even pointed in a way that I don't think I would get in like school or with friends necessarily but I felt like the only way you can survive when you don't see yourself. Reflected is by like talking through it with people who understand and so that was it. I mean my family was very outspoken and shared their point of views freely in the House that we were always laughing and sitting around the table and like joking and so some of my success may be can be attributed to the fact that like I come from that tradition of just like cutting up for hours at a time and did you ever become aware conscious of the fact that even though at home it was a safe space and encouraged to question institutions and power and how things are but when did it become a reality for you or did it ever that not everybody agreed with that perception or it might be harder to do that in other spaces. Oh Yeah I mean I think the first time I realize that like in my opinion was it you know as valued or even like wanted was probably around fifth grade. I had a teacher that was especially sort of backwards and racist and hard on me in a way that she was not on other kids in the classroom and I really just kind of internalize it. I didn't deal with it like by telling my mother immediately or any of that stuff. I think I just I ended up internalizing that. And just be like. Oh maybe I'm the problem. Maybe like everything I grew up thinking is wrong and I really just you know. I think when you're a little kid you want your teacher to see you as someone who is capable and smart and has potential and. I never felt that from that teacher and I think it just really affected me in that way so I also think that part of the reason I left Kentucky after college was because I felt like in a lot of ways I was in a place that was not ready to celebrate support or even on the lowest level. Just listen to someone like me but I've been using the Internet that whole time right like I feel like neo pets and all that stuff kind of happens starting in fourth and fifth grade for me so I had this dichotomy right of my reality being people outside You know thinking that I'm too radical because I think that like black people should be treated as people and then on the Internet. I'm you know talking to people all around the world and being treated like just a citizen of the world and you know like playing games and laughing and it's never that serious and so. I think that I found the confidence to leave because I knew just from spending time with people online. Who were not you know directly across the street from me? I knew that there was a better world out there and that there was space for my voice to be heard and so the long way to answer your questions. I think that I was highly aware of the fact that my sort of energy wasn't really supported or appreciated and I needed to leave defined a community somewhere else. The you're so young. Even not only having to articulate that but having to experience it and physically move before you left Kentucky how did you modulate those two parts of yourself or those two feelings even within you? I mean it was a lot of like mental anguish like depression anxiety eating disorders and things that made me question my own inherent worth based on outside projection of what was good and acceptable. And so you know. Part of the leaving was just to save my own life. You know what I mean like I. I didn't think it would be sustainable. To stay in a place where I was being smothered all the time with a very narrow lens of what is good and one that is completely unattainable for a person who wasn't born into money and had skin darker than paper bag. Like that's just the reality of where I was from and so I think I I just suffered kind of silently for a long time and then I was like Oh. I don't have to be here like I don't have to be here. It is worth the risk of failing spectacularly to get the fuck Outta here. It's worth it. I would rather try to leave than stay. It's sort of like I don't know if you watch Black Mirror but there's that episode hanged Dj where they're in the simulation forever and eventually they just decided to leave. I feel like that's where I was. I was like oh I've played this every different way and it's never worked out for me. I think I just have to leave. Yeah and you have to ask that question. Like how long can you be part of a system and fight it before it conditions you to just be apathetic or when you have a bit of energy remaining inside yourself? What can you do with the kind of? Frees you from those different approaches. That's exactly right. And was that when I became.

"A sense of accomplishment compliment for getting her homework done. She felt unusually happy but after school. She gave a classmate a ride which pushed her arrival time. Unharmed ten minutes late Mickey was livid as he criticized her. She grabbed the welfare check. She'd been expecting from the mailbox. They were out of groceries yet again so she told him she needed to run to the store. She was furious about that too. He yelled at her for wanting to leave without making enlist first one. He insisted on seeing an approving. Most food seem to make him vomit but he consistently blamed francine's cooking by the time she finally made the store run. She was exhausted so she decided to serve frozen dinners when she pulled them out in the kitchen. Mickey threw a Tantrum cursing at her and calling her lazy bitch. She didn't think he would eat anyway. She recalled telling him to which he replied. That's that's the trouble with you. You're always thinking sensing a physical attack. Francine's searched her mind for a strategy anything to lessen the literal blows. He demanded she dropped out of school. tore her books instructing her to burn them when she resisted he grabbed and shook her his eyes frenzied. Do you want to break your neck right now. He asked she sobbed the taste of blood lead filling her mouth as she succumbed to his demands. Burning her books in a trash can when she said she would go to school anyway. He threatened to use a sledgehammer to destroy her car. Francine tried to run outside but he blocked the door. She called her daughter Christie to fund the police when officers arrived home. They said they couldn't arrest Mickey because they had witnessed the attack laws of the time. Required that later deputies would testify that the man told his wife quote it was all over because she called to report him they also testified fight that he verbally abused francine threatening her life. And those of officers after they left Mickey beat her again when she made dinner for the kids. He threw the food on the floor then rubbed her face in the sticky mess. He demanded she making dinner and bring it to him in the bedroom she did her. Best with limited ingredients her shaky hands foreign patties out of canned salmon potatoes after he he had finished. He called her back into the bedroom where she found him lying on the bed. His pants unzipped. I hated it worse than I ever had. Before she said of the rape the idea of him inside me owning my insides shoving deep into me made my flesh crawl. I looked down at him and I had an impulse to put the pillow over his face and smother him. But I knew I wasn't strong enough. I clenched my teeth to keep from MM screaming. When he was done she moved to the living room and sat down feeling like a quote helpless frozen frozen fury of Qena blocked before directs? She heard the kids moving about stairs and remember that they hadn't eaten all day. She could almost feel their stomachs hurting but the kids swore they weren't hungry appetites. We're likely numb like hers so they watch. TV together and activity. She hoped might calm them down. Distract them as she sat there. Her Daughter Nicky's head on her lap up. She thought of school and how hard she had worked seemingly now for nothing. She considered how horrible her life had been since meeting. Mickey and the hopelessness of her future house she had suffered. She began mentally coaching herself. You don't know him anything Fran you never did. Don't let him ruin the kid's lives the way he has ruined yours. Take them away. You've got to take them away. A plan flashed in her mind. She would sneak out with children and drive them far far away but there was a problem one of her kids. Dana wasn't home home yet. She couldn't let him return to their father at the very least that would mean she would return and she had already caved too many times. This time had to be different. She stood up and started pacing considering how much she hated her life with Mickey and how she had to get out erase it and never looked back. That's when it struck her later she recalled thinking. I wasn't going to come back because there wasn't going to be anything to come back to because I was going to burn the house down as for Mickey she would burn him to suddenly her dark emotions gave way to excitement. She forgot everything else. Dana the consequences the reality of taking in life. She plays the kids in the car which was parked just outside carried a jug of gasoline. To the bedroom I stood still for for a moment hesitating and a voice urged on. She said it whispered do it. Do it do it over and over and I just kept on on with that. She poured gasoline around. Mickey's bed and lit a match. As the fire blazed raised flamed swallowing the home she drove to the county jail and turned herself in declaring. I did it. When firefighters reached the home they found Mickey's body amid the charred rubble? He died from smoke inhalation. Francine was promptly charged with first degree murder and felony murder which brought a maximum sentence of life in prison later. The felony murder charge. I was dropped that November eight months after she lit a match. Our life the MO- sensational trial. In the county's history began thirty years old at the time. Francine seemed soft-spoken nervous her court. Appointed Attorney Aria and Oregon is a former prosecutor. took the case after others refused. He believed francine acted in self defense. Uh Psychiatrists who spoke on her behalf. Testified that something snapped in her that night making her temporarily insane and prompting her to kill her ex-husband husband to Francine's kids took the stand testifying that they witnessed their parents arguing throughout the day. Their father hitting their mother multiple a couple times and threatening her with a knife. They described Mickey's violence as commonplace. The case drew national attention. Attention feminist groups banded together to form the Francine Hughes Defense Committee with hopes of a landmark decision for a new legal interpretation of self defense sense especially as it applied to women. Protesters fill the cement staircase outside the courthouse holding signs touting messages like free francine shoes battered women need support and stop violence against women. After seven days of testimony. The trial ended a jury of ten women and two men took only five hours to come to a unanimous conclusion. They found Francine Moran and Hughes not guilty by reason of temporary insanity meanwhile relatives of Mickey Hughes maintained that Francine and got away with murder leaving the courtroom for City Hall. She and her attorney held a press conference when a reporter asked Francine and seeing if she had ever considered herself a liberated woman she replied. I don't think I've ever been liberated. But I'd like to. After francine team was acquitted. Having spent nine months behind bars. She received a bouquet of roses with an anonymous note that read to a battered rose. which blooms again Dan but not? Everyone felt she deserved blossoming. One of Mickey's brothers sent her a note during her jail time threatening you are next. Newfound fear accompanied her making even simple tasks such as running errands. Daunting readjusting to Motherhood posed challenges to. Oh I thought I was going to have to stay in prison so I blocked off a lot of emotions toward my children. She said it was really hard for me to get close to them again on top of that her kids have been traumatized by their fathers gruesome death. Despite their mixed feelings their daughter Christie who was was twelve at the time of the fire said she spit on his grave and described him as a rotten son of a bitch for awhile. Francine struggled struggled with demons. She hadn't yet processed. She partied and drank heavily attempting to escape her feelings. Finally she realized she had to stop trying to self-destruct if only for the sake of her family gradually they got back on their feet found healing and grew closer. Meanwhile francine cross paths with country. Music singer Robert Wilson. Just six before. Robert had been released on parole bill after serving time for armed robbery during his time behind bars Robert completed a degree in psychology. Maybe they understood something about each other. What a person might do when they're pushed beyond their limits and the desire to make something more of your life thereafter whatever? The reasons there was an instant connection. He asked Francine to dance at an outdoor concert. Then serenaded her friends warned him not to get involved.

And but he's yes appeared as the subject, not only of the aviation, but Melvin and Howard classic which got a couple of kademi word nominations, many years ago, the amazing Howard Hughes, Tommy Lee Jones, starring Howard Hughes and really timely Jones, played Howard us you can see that. I guess I can't I don't know. Like to me. The two that always pop to mind are Leo DiCaprio is sort of the younger sort of more dashing version, and then in Melvin. And Howard Jason Robards playing Howard Hughes at the end of his life where I mean she is Hughes was an eccentric. He believe had severe OCD and the subject of Melvin, and Howard was that ultimately proved to be a hoax that a man named Melvin Dhamar is that the last I think the lounge right came forward and said. That he had an encounter with Howard Hughes and Howard Hughes, rewrote his will and left everything to him. And that ultimately was proved to be a hoax, but Jason Robards really good in that movie. Yeah. He's got Hugh's. Got quite a legacy. He established. Charity, which is the second largest charity in terms of assets in the country and fifth in the world, at least in terms of disclosed assets, the heart Hughes Medical institute, which is located Chevy Chase Maryland. Yeah. Right. Right nearby. I had no idea. And, and of course, he's the inspiration for Tony stark iron man. Yes. I suppose we're burying the lead here. But yeah, yeah. I you were working toward that. No, I was not. But you had mentioned that earlier today. And I was like, wait. Is he is he really pretty far down on his list of what we were doing was his actual accomplishments, you know, now we're going to like the fictional rights stuff and in for a certain type of person that's what you lead Howard shoes. Never heard of. She was the inspiration for Tony stark really telling me. Yeah. He is the visual and. In lifestyle. Other than I think, Tony stark is supposed to be Howard Hughes, minus the crazy. Although he is an alcoholic twenty stark stark. Now, does that show up in the movies, maybe? No not yet. There's still time. I probably won't the kids don't need to see that it actually in the comic books showed up in the first couple of movies, there were a couple of scenes where, where Tony, Tony cut a little little head a little too much. Yeah. Which terrible problem to have. But not as not as unique, as Howard Hughes's issues, which would be tougher to be a superhero. I think given what Howard Hughes was going through. I think that's. Yeah. I think that's probably safe. I think we're at the end of this upset, Phil Varker. You can read more from him and Jeremy Myers and the rest of the crew at 'em funds. You can go to 'em funds dot com. A guarantee there's like one or two people out there that were thinking, here we go, and they were looking forward to another fifteen minutes on of Howard Hughes off the rail stuff. I'm one or two.
