Takeaways from the Senate hearing on Washington, DC riot
"Faulty intelligence and band communication lead to the breakdown of security during the capital riots. A hearing about the rights underway on Capitol Hill is good policed on that. Joining us live now, NBC radio National correspondent Mike Power Morning, Mike Yeah. Good morning, Joe. You're looking at former U. S. Capitol security officials telling Congress and enjoy hearing yesterday that they did not have sufficient information ahead of the January 6 attacks in the Capitol to accurately predict The scale of the attack. You had testimony from former U. S. Capitol police chief Steven Son, House sergeant at arms Paul Irving and Senate sergeant at arms, Michael Finger and all of whom resigned their posts after the Capitol siege following request from top leaders of both parties. But you also heard from U. S. Capitol Police captain Kardashian Mendoza, who's been with the department 19 years and said that that day January 6 was by far the worst of the worst. In terms of events that she has worked over the past two decades. And clearly what the messaging was here was that while they felt Capitol police and others felt they were prepared for an event, it doesn't sound like they had any idea of what this event was going to turn into. Capitol police chief Stephenson said. These criminals came prepared for war. They came with their own radio system to coordinate the attack. They came in climbing here and other equipment to defeat the Capitol Security features. At all three former capital security officers agreed that the January 6th attack was planned and coordinated. It involved white supremacists and extremist groups. And they did not get enough information from the FBI about it if they got any at all. In fact, some of them son it was there was indicating that he hadn't heard anything about FBI intelligence indicating that this could evolve into something bigger. Harsher greater than what the expectation was, until literally yesterday. That's when he heard about about to be fair. He did resign after the jet the January 6th attacks. But he said during the time there, there was no preparation that based on the intelligence, they believe that they met the threat that was they were prepared for, and now they know they had the wrong plan. There wasn't enough of the information coming from the FBI, even though the FBI sent a report the evening of the attempted evening before the attack detailing various calls for violence next day, but those never got to the proper people, according to reports yesterday. This is kind of strange, because even before this rally occurred, there was word that the National Guard was rated standing by in the National Guard was offered. So I mean, you know, uh, somebody was prepared. It seems like there was a head's up on some level or or maybe that's the worst case scenario thought like, Let's just make sure we've got that kind of back up, ready to go. But even then there were concerns over apparently optics as to whether or not the optics of having a national guard. There was something that was a concern whether or not there was a call made early in the day requesting Help from the National Guard has had sons. You said he made a call at 109 P. M. But you according to Irving, he said he didn't receive such a call. So now you've got senators going, okay? Let's get phone records to verify that somebody made that call at 109 asking for National Guard help and what happened or what their confusion was on some level immediately afterwards because that could be a big indication As to why the guard didn't get out there quick enough clearly for the situation, so there is still more investigation that needs to be done. I believe that there's going to be another one of these coming up next week that will be greater detail That's determined what happened with the National Guard on some level, but at least at this point in time, the indication was Capitol Police didn't have all of the information at their disposal to determine Whether or not this was going to be his violent as it actually turned out, already

The History (and Erasure) of Black Brewers
"Despite the overarching image of whiteness. When it comes to beer there is a vast history of black brewing culture. Which like so many things has been largely erased from the history books and cultural consciousness. James bennett the second dove into this for a recent peace in eater. He acknowledges the huge influences of german and irish culture in america but points out. That's not the only source when it comes to beer quoting eater. The ancestors of african americans. They were fermenters. They were really good at making their own liquor and making their own beers and also making wine from fruit says the culinary historian and writer. Michael w twitty one of our african 'isms in fact was producing all of these things and one of the reasons why we did. That was because it was related to our traditional spirituality libation twitty. Ads is the heart of african spiritual worship. He recounts seeing this firsthand on a trip to takhar village in cameroon. They pull out a big ceramic vessel full of their traditional beer. He says and even though a lot of takhar our muslim this is one of the traditional religious practices that they keep alongside islam. What beer-drinking may be nonexistent on friday. Would he notes. You better believe that at social functions to honor youth. Celebrate a marriage or the deceased in the ground. Alcohol is poured out and passed among the elders and quotes alcohol and in many cases. Beer was and is important. Spiritually and culturally to many different communities in africa throughout the ages as european colonizers began enslaving people and forcing them to work on their stolen land. The knowledge and skill sets of many enslaved black people surrounding bruin were exploited quoting again. The prevailing image of enslaved black person is that of someone laboring in the fields were being ordered around the big house but american slavery built in sustained a pretty much every aspect of this american life and that included beer again the west african societies. From which so many bodies were stolen. Were no stranger to the mechanisms of fermentation. We know that. Enslaved africans and african caribbeans were brewing beer or were cultivating hops or other grains. That would have been used in the brewing process. Says theresa mccullough of the smithsonian's national museum of american history. Black brewing skill was no secret. She adds advertisements for enslaved. People who were skilled. Brewers -absolutely wanted posters that identified fugitives as skilled brewers or otherwise involved in the brewing industry. As american as apple pie. Peter hemmings enslaved at monticello was a master brewer and quote but even if their expertise was being used to produce beer many black individuals who were free at the time. Weren't drinking much of it. Part of it was because temperance. Got rolled into the abolitionist movements. Most abolitionists were anti alcohol. Seen it as a toxic influence and a tool of the oppressor now. That's not to say that all temperance advocates were abolitionists. Far from it but most abolitionist were teetotalers. But there is also a practical angle. Bennett explains black. People were wary of being taken advantage of by white people while drunk and also simply didn't have the money or time for drinking while they were figuring out more important matters like getting an education job and securing semblance of safety in a dangerous climate then in the second half of the nineteenth century beer and cider went from being a smaller mostly at home type of operation to a profitable business largely. Thanks to the influence of german immigrants in america and of course now that it was profitable. Black brewers were shut out and being that beer was now more something to be purchased at an establishment like a saloon versus consumed at home. Black people were also often refused service. Then prohibition hits and when it was repealed with many federal regulations in place breweries were fearful of being shut down so they leaned hard into patriotic. Branding the kind of whitewashed stars and stripes apple pie type of america that is definitively white as been it says. Advertising has more to do with what we buy than most of us care to admit and by his accounts that adds up with the consumer trends that we saw throughout the second half of the twentieth century as white flight brought middle and upper middle class white people to the suburbs where they could host parties at home and had a bit of bigger budget a lot of them swapped beer for cocktails and thinking that they could get them back with a beer that had as high as cocktails beer. Companies tried to sell the white suburbanites on malt liquor but the attempt flopped most likely minutes opposes. Because it's something of an acquired taste so then a pivot happened quoting again. How did malt liquor go from garden. Party aspirated two boys in the hood levels of despair. The exact y. Is a matter of law but jane. Nicole jackson beckham diversity ambassador for the brewers association has a pretty good idea. The story i've been able to get is that there was some kind of persistent market research saying that. Urban audiences make more purchasing decisions based on. Abc and that urban audiences tend to buy for volume. She says the decision was made to market malt liquor not as an upscale product but a specifically urban products and to put it in a large vessel boom the forty and quotes

CBS is Janet Shamlan. Tonight. Texan stuck with sky high electric bills like Meggett O'Neill, a new mom experiencing sticker shock. I'm crying in bed going. I don't know what we're gonna do. She was using gritty for her electricity. Ah, variable rate company that charged her for $4500 last week. For five days of power. You knew, though, that the rates could go off. I did because they fluctuate every day, but some days it's 35 cents some days. It's 98 cents. I didn't think that it would be $1400 a day. I didn't even know that was possible.

Alabama: The Newest Amazon Union Battleground
"Okay lena to understand. What is happening at this alabama warehouse. I'm guessing we should start by looking at some history. Yes and i spoke to just the person for that. Monday is gym specially and i'm a voca auditor for mercedes benz. Us international. We do audits on vehicles. After they're built jim as a very unique perspective on the union voted amazon because his mercedes plant. That was the epicenter of the last time. A super high profile labor battle played out in the state of alabama. And it makes sense that we'd be talking about auto plants because of course. A lot of foreign automakers have been opening factories in the south for decades. Now alex since the nineties yes they brought a lot of new jobs and jim you know he loves his job but he has a pretty glum view of why these foreign car companies came to the south in the first place the coming here because of the fact that there is not a fear of unions. You know they're saying we're just not educated. You know country bumpkins and whatnot. They don't know nothing about unions and don't care a lot of this stems from to work laws and all this other states which say that each worker can choose not to pay union dues still. The auto industry is historically pretty unionized. So the big auto union. The united auto workers decided to go after these new southern factories prompting intense anti union campaigns all labor experts. I talked to about unionization in alabama. Brought up this period of time. Like michael innes jimenez from the university of alabama the board that i'll never forget. Do you want tuscaloosa to be the next detroit. Let's throw race in there too. Obviously but seeing this post industrial city in a lot of pain and blaming the unions and then something incredible happened. workers at volkswagen in. Tennessee voted against the union and vw was the one company that actually wanted a union. It was the governor and republican lawmakers who fought against it from the air things just unraveled nissan workers in mississippi also rejected. The union at jim spits lease mercedes. Plant in alabama. Uaw didn't even petition for a vote. What it all comes down to is getting that vote and we haven't got that in twenty five years on three attempts so this sets the stage for where we are. Now this is. Why alina been asking you. How alabama became the first state to potentially have a unionized amazon warehouse. Right that's why so many people find it surprising. But i actually think that could be one of the three main reasons why this warehouse got to a union votes. So quickly we know amazon has stamped out union attempts and other places perhaps. The company also wasn't expecting such aggressive organizing in alabama compared to more traditionally Activist places. That's factor number. One are the other two to others are about the time and the place. Then let's start with a time. This is one of the things. I heard from the union. That's helping organize amazon workers in bessemer. The unions called the retail wholesale and department store union. And it's president. Stuart applebaum pointed out that this warehouse is only about a year old so it opened right as the pandemic started. I believe that the pandemic opened a lot of people is they understand now that they need a collective voice to stand up for themselves and to protect themselves. I also think that people had expectations when they came in that were not being realized. Amazon has been raking in profits during the pandemic which workers often bring up and also amazon went on a massive hiring spree and this by the way is often when workers ended up gaining some more power which is when they know that the employer needs more workers. The retail union folks say the best. My warehouse workers reached out to them quietly in the summer. They were describing grueling productivity quotas. They wanted to have more say in how they work. How they get disciplined. How they get fired. The union then mobilized support system of other folks from the region who are already unionized particularly workers from poultry plants. Okay and that brings us to your third factor alina. Which is the place right exactly. Professor michael innes jimenez pointed out something notable about alabama on that few people might realize if you follow the border and the coastline between california and maryland. alabama has the highest unionization rate for every state between california maryland. and then throw in tennessee. Also it's a pretty low rate. Only about eight percent of alabama workers are union members which is lower than the national average. But it is higher than all other southern states. And then you've got the specific location of the amazon warehouse which has bessemer. It's a working class. Suburb of birmingham. It's got early roots. In steel and mining and unionized labor. And another thing about bessemer is that it's a community that's predominantly black and the amazon unionization campaign is evoking social justice themes focusing a lot on respect in the workplace and of course this is all happening on the heels of the black lives matter protests. Yes exactly but the union also presented as part of its history. Its members marched with martin luther king junior in the sixties the union president talks about how in the south labor and civil rights battles have always been intertwined and so alina people think that all of these things at the time the place the context will end up making a difference and give alabama. The nation's first unionized amazon warehouse. the union. certainly hope so folks there told me more than half of the workers at the bessemer warehouse signed petitions for union shop. So they think this could be it of course amazon for its part has led a big anti-union campaign. They've got required meetings where workers were told. How union dues our waste of money. How great these jobs are already with all the benefits and the starting wage of fifteen dollars an hour and for context. The minimum wage in alabama is also the federal minimum wage which is seven dollars. Twenty five cents an hour which makes amazon starting wage of fifteen dollars an hour. More than double the alabama minimum. That is actually a big point four. Jim spits lee over the mercedes benz plant as he's watching this big amazon union. Vote play out it'll send a nami ripple but it's going to send one. It's going to let people know that. Hey even people fifteen dollars an hour. Seventeen dollars an hour can have union in their workplace. Bessemer warehouse workers will be voting by mail through the end of march. If this votes exceeds at an anti union place like amazon in alabama. This could turn a whole new page for both the

"All right let's get back into the show so even when you were working at the Cato Institute you still were basically you know on a Republican. You weren't yet a committed Republican liberty personally friendly surveys like I thought okay. This is going to be a mechanism a means to an end like it is possible or likely. I would say likely that a Republican President Congress is going to do a good job of pulling back The growth of government look. They just kill socialized healthcare. They just respond to shut the government. This is going to happen. These people believe that they impeached Clinton. You know they're holding therefore they're not fucking joking around and yeah they were. They were totally joke. Around was a total farce. Is One of the really sad things about the. The story of America is really. You know what we've done especially in in me in your lifetime is just what's happened in the twenty first century to this country. I mean we really just blew the twenty first century. Forget being anarchists and all the moral problems we can have with America going back. I'm not even talking about morality as much as I am. Almost just from a business perspective like the bottom line like we went into the year two thousand with just you know being the most successful country that's ever existed and what we've done in the first twenty years of of the twenty first century is really been to like jeopardize everything it's just been you know. I mean even this is why we're living in this world of like Sanders and trump. You know these like populist movements on the left and the right because even like average person can just look around and go wait a minute so like we can't win are wars. We can't balance our budgets. We can't protect our borders. We can't have a cohesive culture. We can't like the very basic things that you expect countries to be able to do where failing at all of them and it's and I really. I put like the majority of that. Blame on the moment that you're talking about in the year two thousand when the Republicans take the Presidency the House and the Senate and this is like look. This is how we're starting off the year two thousand with complete Republican control and they just we had the most disastrous eight years. The last two were not all Republican control. They had it up to two thousand six. But those six years. If you want to just say of Republican control Just I mean on every level and absolute disaster. So it's interesting that that was the moment that you kind of your Belief that that things might change if Republicans everything. It was really such a such a terrible time for the country. Oh yeah it was unambiguous that the data lady the first thing they do is Medicaid. Part d whatever it was like what? What are you talking about you people? I remember very vividly ninety six. When Bob Dole was running against Bill Clinton and Clinton says Bob Dole was going. Bill Clinton was the government to increase it. Eighteen percent increase a twelve percent. Whatever the number was and I'm just like are you fucking kidding? Me Like this is a it was just and while he's doing that they're saying that he wants all people starving in the street early at that the nation of just like this is not for me. Yeah well there's something you know. It's funny that you mentioned the Medicare Part D prescription drug program thing because that's that's an important distinction because even if you were to grant the Republicans which I don't at all but even if you were to grant them though like nine eleven war in Iraq had to happen all the military budget build up and all of that. The it's still that still doesn't explain the outrageous growth in domestic spending. The no child left behind in the Medicare expansions in the every single budget of every domestic program. Going up So yeah it was it that really was I. I think I opening to a lot of People a lot of right wing people in America and part of the reason why I mean. Obviously it's it's years later but part of the reason why in two thousand sixteen a guy like Donald trump is able to become president So what so happens to you after this period so now you're kind of disillusioned about the Republican Party. You've been exposed to a lot of libertarian Literature and been around a lot of libertarian people. So what was your next step in your intellectual journey. It was it. I just full blown. Enter at that point I mean it. There's Hannah in there. Yeah I mean I was a hardcore libertarian. Already I would say but I mean at that point especially seeing the war state is just like I I by twenty sixteen when when when he came on. My blogger fee already identified as anarchists But I think became a significant bit earlier. Also they're pulling the supreme court like who Bush's putting up. Its kidding me. And what's his name? His Attorney General I forget the guy's name. He was a former spence. It was space anyway. They had Greek statues in the Capitol building. Any cover them up because they were naked. Like these classical statues and I'm just like you. People are just authentic just pathetic you have no problem killing incarcerating your own citizens but like like a ancient statue of beauty of the human body. This is a problem for you. You were not at all what I'm about you've always I remember I think you you're the one who said your definition of a right-wing is was the that question about people being better than others right. It's IT'S A litmus test. Yeah so so. Just tell people what that is if they're not familiar. Sure I think we're in a bit of a delay but that's okay The Litmus test says it's an easy way to tell if someone is Right wing or left wing if you end already cringing at the comments. But that's okay ask. What do you think some people are better than others and someone who is right wing? We'll say yes and someone who's left wing will give a speech and it has happened worked for me successfully one hundred percent of the time if he doesn't need to hear so would you. Do you consider since me and you would both answer. Yes without without a speech to that to that question. Do you consider us to be right. Wingers I think by most definitions. Yeah although I would consider myself to be very left wing. But there's several different ways to define the terms so I always I kind of like I mean I understand. Different people have different definitions right leg. You're saying there's different ways to understand these terms and certainly there's a lot of people There's a lot of people who consider me a right winger. Although the hard right-wingers would consider me a left or a liberal or something like that But I always personally. I kind of like Walter blocks just third leg on the stool I to me. I really do think that that libertarian. Anarchists are. It's just almost like you. Have this right wing left wing thing and we're our own different thing so I was doing on and I think that's cheating. Yeah I UNDERSTAND. I understand that you you a lot of people do want that but even someone like you to to describe you as right wing to me just seems off particularly as you mentioned with so much so much of your cultural views on things. Just it doesn't seem accurate like it seems like it's not cheating it is actually fair to you neither left nor right wing your own branch because for very obvious reasons. Both of these terms have achieved a boatload connotations in public discourse and as mechanisms to dismiss preemptively. What a person is say. So and I talked about this in my book. Like if you WanNa Talk About Mussolini and Fascism. Right which he achieved a decade before Hitler was in power. You can't because as soon as the safe fascism Like right away. There's all these kind of Gatien's not inaccurately because this is where it goes. You really make sure not down that slippery slope but again when you say right wing it has. And that's that's that's the other thing becomes funny that you have these boomer cons like Hitler becomes potato like it. They'll think I'm right. Wing Hitler's bad. There for Hitler's right right and then they'll have the rationalization as to why the left you'll be like you're crazy. I'm left Ray. Left brings good. Hit was obviously right wing Blah Blah Blah and people wanted to find these terms as whichever one I am. It's all the good stuff and they are. It's all the bad stuff and it's like it would be really nice if we kind of have the teams separate so easy but right wing and left wing have both many positive connotations and many negative connotations in many definitions and it always amazes me..

One Yawns Away Pantheon Pam says one o'clock to which Angela immediately says one thirty and then Pam Yawns. Yeah and then Angeles asses her yeah. She's like I'm sorry. Are we boring you will you know? There's in a deleted scene. I improvised the line where I said not Phyllis yes. Do you remember that high? Do I did and we all laughed. We used to laugh a lot when we did these. Ppc scenes will. They would let us go. They would give us a few lines and then they would just let us go and we would improvise the most boring like conversations like on purpose. We'd be like well. I don't know guys how I feel about paper plates. I mean which size should we get? So we get the large Oval One. No one gets oval who gets an OVAL PAPER PLATE. No one I think we get the square ones square paper plates. We would like we would do for so long. That's because Great Daniels loved the PPC. He loved our mundane banter so much he loved the dynamic of it and so he would let us. Just go on forever. I loved it. Yes it was so fun well then Dwight enters and he tells us that Michael. Once tricked handles for his cake. Yeah he gives us a list a list of SURPRI yet. Micheal would like and this is one Angela tells dwight that this is a closed-door meeting. Michael Ones Trick Candles. He wants a stripper. Gram and Angeles like no now. It's a closed-door meeting and then there's this sort of odd like stair off between Dwight and Angela and Pam's like what is happening yes. I have a fan catches. Well what this is. A fan catch from sexually woke. This person wrote in to say Phyllis is breaking at four minutes. Nineteen seconds when you talk about the stripper. Gram I did not notice this. The first time I watched it and I saw it gets a little smirk and I think you could think it was. Phyllis the character but Angela. We know Phyllis and I think this was a real phyllis smile. I'm sure it was. We laughed a lot in those scenes so I love that. I'm going to go back and look for that. That's so cute. I also want to note that when rain comes in and out of the door. John is not at his desk in the background so he bailed on some background work way to go. John Way to be sneaking get out of that I know I guess what was he. He was probably playing Madden football in his trailer with Brian with you and their downtime when they had scenes and they would yeah they were so loud you remember they were so loud they be like get at get them all right so at four minutes. Thirty five seconds. We now have this phone. Call between Michael and Jan and Michael's office. Yeah and Jenna. Did you catch who is in the room with Michael Ryan Ryan is sitting there for the whole phone call? And the call is so awkward. He's like hey I called she happy birthday and she's like it's not my birthday and he's like Oh. I thought we had the same birthday. And she's like no and then she's like Happy Birthday Michael and then she's like are we being filmed and he's like nope not at all and then he says jam just feel free to say whatever is in your heart and then doesn't she just like hang up clerk. Dial tone and they'll Ryan is sitting here and I have a little something to point out you go and watch the deleted scenes. There is a beginning to the scene. And that is that Ryan. The temp has been given the task to tie those balloons in Michael's Office. And so this is where the balloons though him and Michael are in his office. Ryan is tying a balloon to his chair and then he's like can I leave and Michael's like nope. Thank you so much for telling me this because I was wondering where those. Dang balloons come from because Michael did not walk in with them. He must've somehow ordered Ryan attempt to get them. Yes and then this Khalid of seen as the proof he makes them stay in for the phone. Call Oh God so miserable I feel so bad for Ryan that scene well the next Cena's very cringe as well because michaels in the kitchen and he is just hovering over this box of doughnuts waiting for someone and then win. Stanley comes in. He's like Oh my gosh. Somebody must have brought in doughnuts for my birthday Michael. We saw you carry that box in. When you arrive my buddy Michael Michael Michael Michael Michael. I have something to point out here. So you know and Booze cruise you and Jim. Look at each other for twenty seven seconds of silence right. Yeah twenty seven seconds. Is that right? Twenty seven seconds. That's right okay. I want you to know how long Michael stood with his hand on that coffee pot waiting for someone to come in so he could act like he was putting himself a cup of coffee. Act Surprise there were doughnuts for his birthday. He stood there for ten seconds of pure silence. Wow now if you think about the TV show you guys. That's a long time to leave a character just sitting there waiting for someone to notice him. That is so true. That's amazing. Ten seconds. Ten seconds he stood there looking around waiting for someone to walk in and then we'll and then later when toby comes in. It's so sad. Toby sees the doughnuts and he finds out it's Michael's birthday and he gives the most just upbeat genuine genuine happy birthday Michael. And then Michael is so me. Michael's like you didn't Burrell. Yeah I guess I'm not going to remember to give you a donut. I know he's such a third to toby. Toby so nice to him. I know so also happening in this episode. Is everyone kind of learning about the fact that Kevin's waiting for these skin test result? So like gyms in the in the break room and they're talking about it and Kelly over. Here's Yeah Kelly you mean Mindy Mindy over. Here's that is a mandate kaeling talking head when she's like. Oh my gosh. I never thought about death. Until Princess Diana's funeral which was so sad and then she pauses. She's like that. My sister's like oh it's such a dark it's such a darn talking head so dark. How many got through that. She almost didn't I want you to know look at six minutes. Five seconds mindy is so about to laugh. She's holding it together. Well then. The Accounting Department is discussing Kevin's possible. Skin Cancer Angela. And you are. I mean Angela. Martin is a real downer. She's a little bit of Debbie Downer. I mean Oscars like you know what? I'm sure it's going to be fine and I'm like don't give them. Also you don't know that is that pragmatic I think. She is You know I yeah. She's pragmatic she doesn't need to see the rosy picture she's like just give me the stats the what are the stats on this. The stats are. You should be worried. Yeah that's what the stats say. So next up Michael. Gets a delivery. Oh Miami he thinks that the woman is his stripper gram. He's so excited he's Giddy. He literally says here. We go and then hands alive made me laugh so hard. He's like. Oh this chair has arms. Is that GONNA be alright that line? That made me laugh so hard. He's like it'll be fine. You'll probably you'll walk around. It improvised that I feel like he improvised that. I don't know I don't know but I bet you're right I do. I wish I had the script for this one because I would look it up but I feel like that feels like that feels like something you notice in the moment right because they just pulled the chair side and it had arms and I think he saw it and he said it. That's that's what I it feels very much. Like a Steve Improv moment. Well I do want to just give a shout out to this guest actor Susan Foley who played the delivery woman. I thought she was great shoes. Fantastic shape played at super straight super. Real made it very very funny. Her confusion was not overplayed. It was perfection. Well-done Sousa and then we just find out some sad back story of Michael's Childhood Janai. His childhood breaks my heart. If so we have this birthday party. When he was seven he was so excited. He said they got a pony and cart and the pony gave him a rash and his mom rubbed Yam on him for three hours and then he missed the party. He said it was his worst birthday. We'll this is a runner and some of them got cut out but Michael had this runner throughout this episode of all of his worst birthdays. Comparing it to this one so this guy had a lot about birthdays. Well he's GonNa get pick me up from Dwight who's going to play the recorder for him while he eats doughnuts. Dwight is playing billy. Joel which is a runner on our show. We're constantly going to the Billy Joel Music Library on the office. I don't know why that is the longest time But of course Dwight Calls Him William Joel and then Michael is lamenting how he's being treated in the office and he says I bet Luke Perry's friends don't treat them like this and he references this poster that this is what the delivery woman was delivering. It is a poster of James Dean. Not Of Luke. Perry that his mom sent him for his birthday. That's what his mom sent him. Now do you think that his mom meant to send him Luke Perry or she meant to send him James Dean and Michael Just mistook it for Luke. Perry which which one is Michael? A fan of or neither isn't just Michael's mom was like I don't know what to give him. I think Michael is probably a fan of Luke. Perry and that's who his mom thought it was. That's what I think. I think like that story. I don't know but I I mean I feel like that's something my mom would do or my sister when you're at Christmas. My sister got me a Green Bay packers baseball hat. Yeah and I was like I don't I don't get it and she was like well. You went to Baylor Green and gold. Same colors I was like. What same colors right? Same call right so I feel like that could be sort of a mom moment. Angela one year for Christmas. My mom got me from I. Guess a local art fair in Saint Louis. A drawing of a woman and her cat She got it for me because she knows I love cats. I'M GONNA post this on office. Ladies Pod instagram's she going to get upset with you. She say something.
