"It was good talking to hope to have you again. Okay? Alright. Thank you. Thanks. I appreciate it. Hugo, Martine from the Times great piece he covers travel on. I knew I knew his name these from he'd been on the metro staff from back in the nineties. So let me ask you this. I mean, obviously, we need tests. But we have a president who says we test too much. You get to problem, right? Do you guys see the problem? What we're facing here. Yeah. 80 88 10 is how you reached me. I just gotta ask you like it. What do you think? Is the answer. Do you really believe when the president says it's okay? To go out. And you know the people are key. I mean, does he? Either. He's incredibly Ignorant. Or he's remarkably evil. I know some of you are going, You know, you think that But this is not political. You don't know me. You didn't know me 20 years ago, 25 years ago. I haven't always been this far to the left. What I am now because of people like this guy and people. Like you who support him. You have Broken my heart. That the Republican Party that I knew that were reasonable and that we could have even spirited discussions about things like abortion, right? We could talk about it. Now we have ah, an idiot savant. Who talks about things like, you know, Art Bell's listeners in UFOs and, Yeah, Bigfoot. I mean, that's who we're dealing with that that's what we got. And it's your fault. What do you think? Chip? What you call? What? I didn't do anything. But, you know, I'm talking about It's your fault. So, uh, well, here's there's only one way. To end this And it's to vaccines. And until then we have to stay alive with masks. We have to stay alive, a distancing and he's saying when here I say, stay alive. Obviously not everybody dies. But some people get really sick for a long time. And we still don't know enough about that and how that works. Will it affect you later in your life If you get sick now, we don't know. Is virus didn't exist a year ago. So that's it. I mean, this is the guy you Ijust don't you all have the same sort of just incredulity about people who support him. Like why would you vote for this guy? He's obviously as utter contempt for you. He would never invite you tomorrow, Lago. He makes jokes about you. We hear it from everybody, the people that were close to him. They can't all be wrong. It's like 50 people that have come out to work with him and said he's not. He's not. He's not unfit for the presidency. He shouldn't be allowed to dress himself. Not Fairfield. Let's go to Pete in 80 88 10 Pete. Sorry about that little diatribe there, but sometimes I gotta let it out. Amen Ship. I mean, you know, and as a Republican, well, former Republican fall away Republican myself. If there's any Republicans out there, you gotta understand that Trump is trading votes for lives right now. And he is not at all ensconced in science or any in any way, shape or form. But the one thing I wanted to say was that with testing The reason testing is important Is it because it prevents we we all know the spread is being propagated by friends and family. They're getting together because people are under the mistaken impression that if they know the people there are associating with they must be safe. And that's that is counterintuitive to what people think in terms of survival instinct, But that's exactly what is going on right now. And for example, my son lives in L. A. He's going to come up for Thanksgiving. Before Thanksgiving. He's going to meet some friends, some of which are in college, and they're running and house together about 10 days before they come home for Thanksgiving. Well, you know what he's not going to be allowed in the bubble. Unless and until he is Kobe tested. But if the president keeps putting up barriers for testing because he wants to basically shield the public from the truth. Those types of situations going to repeat it over and over again, and we'll never get out of this mess. And it's Horace. Vaccines are concerned. You're absolutely right. The only problem is that You know this virus? Ah, is very similar to the common cold. It's in the same class of viruses and you know that people say there's no cure for the common cold. Well, there may well not be any Sheriff for this disease. I hope to God there is but there may not be And if there isn't the only thing that we conduce is mask and distance ourselves. And I was right to come in and tell me why That method of thinking is wrong. That's what I want to hear from those people. Well, they're been led by Ah, Charlton by a con man. And normally you know, the old saying is, if you can't see the Khan then you're the mark. Well, we can all see the con, and we're still the mark. I mean, that's what the thing about this but you know, to your point about vaccines. I mean, the infectious disease specialist that I talk to. You know, they're they're excited because SARS Cov, too, seems to want to protect its integrity. And it does so when it meant it replicates. So what? We're not seeing the kind of kind of Ah, the changes that we've seen before in viruses and, you know, hopefully that won't happen. I mean, it's changed some, but it's essentially the same as it was when you know it's got out of China. Thank you for the call Man. Appreciate it got a text or a D. M from somebody in Sydney, Australia, who listens to this show and said. They had Ah, match 40,000 people a couple weeks ago and no outbreak because that's what they've done, and he lives in..

"You're very welcome. Well, you'd usually find a different kind of want being waved at Disneyland, but the happiest place on Earth and other Southern California theme parks remain closed. Yesterday, the state issued new protocols for them to reopen Initially that brought a glimmer of hope. But meeting the requirements may take Ah lot more time many more months, leaving the theme park industry and its employees stuck on a ride that just won't end. Hugo Martine is a business writer who covers the travel industry for the Los Angeles Times. Welcome Hi. Thanks for having me. Good to have you? Well, the protocols for reopening Divide parks into large and small. What are the new protocols? And how are they distinguished? Okay, so the way the state has put out the protocols Ah theme Park with a capacity of 15,000 guests or more is a large theme park and 1 15,000. Yes, Unless there's a small theme park so most of the major theme parks that we all know Disneyland Universal Studios six flags, They'll all qualify as large theme parks. I think maybe among the small ones would be like, um, is the amusement park at the Santa Monica pier that might fall under small one and under the protocols. The small ones can open when a county where the theme park is located, is in the third tier or the orange here of the States, you know, reopening protocol. The large theme parks have to wait until The county. Therein reaches the fourth tier or yellow. So for places like Universal Studios, which is in L, a county, and that's still in the purple First year it could be quite a while before they get the go ahead to open Orange County, where Disneyland's located there in the red or or second tier. They still have Quite a ways to go. I think they're Orange County's public health official estimated that maybe summer of 2021 before around that. Yeah, so, so they've already laid off lots and lots of workers Does Disney has at Disneyland and ah They must be apoplectic that they will be allowed to reopen until next summer. Yeah, There was just a press conference Not too long ago a couple of minutes ago, actually of presidents. Of all the local theme parks in their their big concern was one their employees being out of work now, seven months. And also the that the companies that you know the shops and businesses that rely on theme park business. You know the restaurants in the hotels. Near Disneyland near Universal Studios there, you know, in the same position, they're laying off people and they're having to pay, you know. Mortgages and utilities and all these other bills without any income coming in, so it's having a ripple effect throughout Well, what are they saying to the argument that well, these places could be easily covet hot spots with so many people gathering in one place. What is their response to that? Their responses that they've been able to open theme parks in other parts of the country and other parts of the world without you know, evidence of being Ah, cope it hot spot. I mean Disney world in Orlando is hope has been open since July. Universal, Also in Florida, has been open about the same time, Uh, theme parks in Europe and in Asia have been open for a while. Andi have been, you know, imposing a lot of restrictions, Capacity limits A ll. The guests have to wear masks. Um, you know, temperature take taken at the entrance, that sort of thing. And their argument is we can open these parks just as we've opened other parks and it could be safe. It's been proven. Well, didn't the state in California send officials to Florida to see how it was going there? And I guess they weren't convinced. Yeah, the state did send people to Florida. They also sent people to the party here in Southern California to see you know what sort of protocols they had suggested. You know how they think they could reduce the risk. And apparently, that didn't really sway the state much because they came back, uh, pretty much with the same protocols that they were considering about two weeks ago. Before they did these. You know these investigations Is it possible that Disney and and others will pursue some kind of legal action against the state? You know, they were asked that today with the presidents of the theme parks on DH. They didn't discount that idea. Um It's unclear whether you, Khun Sue a state over a health crisis, you know, health crisis protocols. Um, I'm sure you know if there were possible than you know, all the restaurants that have been closed in other businesses would have done it by now. So checks and some churches did, and they they lost in court. Yeah, so it doesn't. It doesn't sound like that's a viable option. But again, the theme parks didn't discount doing that. They mostly said they're going to try to work with the administration and persuade them You know, And they urged, you know, theme Park fans and others to, uh, write and call to their You know, state lawmakers to try to get something changed in that in that sense. Economically. The summer was the high season for these parks. So hasn't the damage been done? I know there's increasing damage, but it's to a lesser extent. Now, Perhaps Well, yeah, although, you know, Halloween is also become one of their busiest times of the year. Universal does, you know a big Halloween? A celebration that goes on for many nights, not very farming. Six flags as well. And the Christmas holidays are also the Christmas time is also One of their busiest times for theme parks, especially Disneyland. I mean, typically around Christmas and New Year's Disneyland so fully reached capacity at the closed their gates. So, Yeah, Summer was one of their busiest times. But there are also coming up on a couple of other busy seasons that there are gonna be looks like they're going to stay. Shut it for you. You've talked to some employees. I understand of these parks. What are they telling you? You know, they're real anxious. They don't know what to dio. They've been, you know, without work for seven months. They would love to go backto work at their theme parks. They say they love their jobs. Their um and they're sort of holding out hope that they can return. Someday. Only a couple of the You know, See park workers I've talked to have moved on to other jobs. Most of you are just, you know, collecting unemployment and hoping that something will happen for them to return. Um they feel like you know, they're It's part of a family when they when they worked there, and they can't let it go, really.
