To Fix Inflation, Be Like John Lennon
"If you, based on your last comment, if you could enter the world of John Lennon and reimagine, not now he didn't say re and imagine an ideal economic policy structure for the country. That could begin to get us out of this horrible mess. What would it be? I'm bound by Thomas soules vision, which is a constrained vision because there is no perfect and there's no pain free scenario. And yet to answer your question, I would stop doing the things that made it bad. And I would start doing more of the things that made it good. So if you're in a ditch quit digging, do not spend above your means anymore. We can not pay back all of this debt immediately, but we can stop running up the debt immediately. That's the number one biggest issue. The Federal Reserve only needs to be such an important part of the economy because the government spends out of control. The government spends out of control because the people seem to want them to.

Matt Rosenberg: There Is a Problem of Moral Authority in the City of Chicago
"I'm talking to matt rosenberg from chicago and the book is what next chicago. You're just telling us something really nuts. You're seeing that mayor lori lightfoot Was quoting john lennon's beautiful but insipid song. Imagine in response to some killings. Tell us more about that just so that we understand what in what context was she doing this right while i put it this way that she is channeling john lennon. She did not name him what she did. Say after a mass shooting. In which a number of people were killed was it's a whole essentially. She said it's a whole different ballgame if we don't have all these guns around and the absurdity of that is that it's the proclivity to shoot a gun for spurious reasons. That is the real issue here. I think common commonsense observers understand that so the hard part here is going back to a failure among parents. You know the hard part here to me is the issue of what i like to call in eric. This was growth experience for me. I had to confront. What is the central problem here. And i realized it's centered around something that i decided i would call moral authority. This is probably an area in which you have some experience of thinking and writing and and analyzing i realized it's a pretty basic definition what that what's constituted within that but there are maybe only five percent of chicago's one million households that are not living with moral authority but that's a large enough number to affect a tyranny of the minority which means it's not safe to be out on the streets which means that schools k twelve public schools are in state of disorder. Where police are required to be onsite breaking up fights guarding students against violence from other students. There's a great pressure on the county court system because of a small relatively small handful of miscreants who have an outsized effect on the city's so there is a problem of moral authority in the city

"He wanted to know. If yoko ono and john lennon had his money the money he had demanded in the he sent back november. John and yoko got this letter right. Of course it. So where was his hundred grand. He wanted to know. December ninth was the date they were supposed to get them the hundred grand and now it was fifteen minutes december tenth. They were late. Where was the money yoko stalled. Of course she knew about the letter. The letter was written by people claiming to be the puerto rican independence movement. They described themselves as terrorists and took responsibility for explosions in several major cities in the us. Even though they didn't site specific incidents they bemoaned money problems within the organization and thus we're hoping to solve said money problems by extorting. One of new york's most rich and famous couples. That letter had set. Yoga's anxiety on eleven. As new yorkers didn't already have enough to fear in nineteen seventy seven. The city was still recovering from the shocking murders at the forty four. Caliber killer aka. The son of sam had committed putting every borough on high alert during one of the hottest summers on record. The letter brought that powerless. Feeling of fear. Right back as well as the feeling of paranoia. The same feeling that yoko and john regularly experienced at the start of the decade when federal agents were monitoring their every move the self-described terrorist letter had demanded that john and yoko leave one hundred thousand dollars in a quote unquote strong package in the lobby of the dakota. The letter gave john and yoko nine days to get the money together. December ninth and of. John and yoko didn't do as the letter instructed. The would be extortionists. Threatened to kidnap or even kill one of them. Were they go after. John yoko sean. It was crystal clear that these people weren't above kidnapping a two year old. John brought the letter to the fbi which he knew was more than a bit ironic given the fact that he and the fbi had been mortal enemies just a few years earlier. The feds agreed to help and tapped john. And yoga's phone again ironic. Given the last time the feds tapped the couple's phone. It was to build a case against them. Undercover agents went to work the dakota the feds posted armed guards. They arranged to get the requested. Hundred grand rolled it up a newspaper and left in the lobby of the dakota on december. Night thus instructed. The feds had enough agents haunting the place that when the so-called puerto rican independence movement came to collect there would be easily tracked and apprehended in. John and yoko could put this harrowing experience behind them in stop fearing for the life of their toddler son but no one ever came to claim. The money hours went by soon. The feds were concerned that the money might be accidentally taken by someone else who wasn't even involved in the shakedown so they took the money. Back can remain vigilant later. That night is. Yoko received the call. They were late where it was. The money go tried to explain that the money had been prepared for them as requested but seeing nobody ever picked it up it took it back for safekeeping. The caller got impatient. You've made a big mistake. He said right before he hung yoga hoped in vain. That the whole thing would just go away. It didn't or we glitter another letter arrived at the coda. This particular letter informed john and yoko that back on december nine is the day that the money was do. Twenty eight members of the puerto rican independence movement had surrounded the dakota building around eleven. In the evening there were all armed to ensure they had proper backup while they sent him a man to collect the quote unquote strong package from the lobby. There were expecting an ambush from the police. But of course there was no ambush and there was also no strong package of money. The puerto rican independence movement were disappointed in the wealthy celebrities they were trying to extort and they told john and yoko so in the letters that followed the fbi continued their surveillance. Nothing out of the ordinary happens. And they ran latent prints from the envelopes and paper and their lab. No matches as weeks turned into months and the letters and phone calls stopped. The fbi eventually decided. The john and yoko were no longer any danger. The feds wondered if there ever was any danger at all. John and yoko weren't sure if they should take the american government's reassurances at face value seeing is how this was the same government that spent an incredible amount of man. Hours in taxpayer dollars in the nineteen seventies trying to deport a beetle for promoting peace. So their feelings of true safety came and went because this was new york city. It didn't sleep anything went. You.

The Timothy Leary Conviction
"On january twenty first nineteen seventy former harvard professor and so called priest of lsd timothy. Leary was sentenced to ten years in prison on drug smuggling charges but in september of that year. The fifty year-old academic broke out of a san luis obispo facility with the help of the weatherman. The daring escape only added to the mystique of the man president. Nixon wants declared the most dangerous man in america. But just what made leery so dangerous. Well it might not surprise you. That richard nixon may have been exaggerating for his own political game according to authors. Bill minna tag. Leo and stephen l davis nixon's advisors suggested he find a public enemy to distract the public from his own flagging approval rating the war in vietnam and the struggling economy. They leary a prominent figure in the counterculture movement and because the former professor was a proud exponent of hallucinogenic drug use. The president's ir fit right in with his war on drugs narrative timothy leary was something of a self appointed spokesperson for the benefits of drug use. Which heat enjoyed since one thousand nine hundred sixty after an experimental magic mushrooms trip. The already noted psychologist became excited about the possibilities. Mushrooms and similar drugs had on the human brain during his tenure. At harvard he conducted academic experiments on the effects of hallucinogens. Drawing the attention and admiration of other notable nineteen sixties figures famed authors. Like gin berg and jack kerouac willingly participated in leary's experiments and it was perhaps their involvement that catapulted the professor onto the national stage before long leary was touring the country speaking about his research and reportedly brushing up against the rich and famous inevitably a backlash arrived. Leary's teaching colleagues criticized his experimentation with lsd. They believed research of that. Nature should be left to medical doctors not psychologists meanwhile psychology experts who once lauded leary's earlier work now made it clear that his drug centered experiments were less praiseworthy. Despite these blows leary insisted that taking lsd was quote a sacramental ritual one that could expand human consciousness. Harvard university did not agree and fired him in nineteen sixty three but by that stage leary had a new life. He was a counterculture touchstone for the masses and a legitimizing scientific voice in the pro drug movement. He rubbed shoulders with marilyn monroe and sang with john. Lennon and yoko ono in short he was a powerful voice advocating for drug use throughout the nineteen sixties. He even appeared before a senate committee to argue in favor of legislation. That would make it legal for adults to use hallucinogenic drugs. So when richard. Nixon assumed the presidency in nineteen sixty nine leary was squarely in his sights. Ostensibly nixon wanted to eliminate drug use in the country. Leary very much did not. That made him dangerous. So it's little surprise that when leary's appeal of his nineteen sixty five drug-smuggling conviction was overturned. The government wanted a second bite at the apple but any joy nixon and his cabinet might have felt in putting leary. Away was short lived using his network of contacts. The former professor escaped prison remaining on the run until nineteen seventy three when he was detained in afghanistan and sent back to the united states. There he was jailed in the notorious folsom. Prison and briefly befriended charles manson and though his sentence was for ten years leary was paroled in nineteen. Seventy six having served just three. It's a surprising twist day given that so many drug offenders imprisoned for decades on similar offenses then again timothy leary was famous and white which might have had something to do with his early release

This is a Unique Problem--So We Need a Unique Solution
"Well. Thank you all for joining. I am really excited to talk to each of you because this conversation is really important especially as we move into the holidays and to start JJ often talks about how one of the things we do is often sort of a school house rock just defining our terms and sort of getting on the same page. So to that and I was wondering if we could talk about what suicide is it's mainly what is something that every American should know about that's quite a question. Yeah, right. Well, it's interesting. I I found myself sort of stunned by the question frankly because it's such a question. Yeah. It's such a huge sort of waited question. But I guess I would say first and foremost suicides an epidemic. I mean, I think it's a massive public health problem in our country and log Those of us that care greatly about veterans and about the military connected Community. It is a major and and really important problem in in those communities and one that people smartest people in the world have been trying to figure this out for a while and I think we're finally starting with all these conversations coming together. I think we're finally starting to potentially knock on some wood here. We're potentially maybe getting to this point where we're going to be able to crack this a little bit. I'm feeling thoughtful about it about about our ability to potentially make make a dent in that sat at last and in my comments are really a follow-on to this, you know, my my answer to talk to Americans need to know about suicide is how complex it is that it is massively complex and we haven't figured it out, which is essentially what Heidi just said and I agree. There's there's reason Hope we're really bad at predicting it right we could we can list off 12 or 16 warning signs. And then we can acknowledge that there are hundreds and thousands and innumerable warning signs that there's no definitive list. There are a lot of warning signs and none of them accurately predict who will die by Suicide. So that's one piece that that needs to be said, it's really complicated and we haven't fully figured it out yet. The other thing that needs to be said is we are getting closer to how to knowing how to treat it that we do know that we do have methods that prevent suicide that treat suicide and that's that's just as important as figuring out how to predict it right? I mean, even if we can't predict it we can prevent it. I mean both of those things actually can go together and one of the ways that song We know we can prevent it is through I mean, I'm kind of jumping to the chase here, but you know, lethal means safety and how to store Firearms is a reliable valid way to prevent suicide so I don't need to mean to blow past these other important more general questions, but that's a really important thing that I think we need to say up front. I don't know that we saved up front all the time. One thing. I think a lot of people don't know is that if you do limit access to a a method that someone was planning to use them and does not go on to find a different way. This is I think I teach this when I teach it and I I am baffled by the number of people in my audience have no idea about that. I think that is a that is a math out there that people will find a way if this is where they are and that's just the literature just doesn't back that up. So yeah, just just kind of reinforcing what Ted just said Thursday. To take a related but a little bit similarly different track. I think something that's often a misnomer is that suicide isn't a individual problem or a just a mental problem or just a clinical problem either? I think we need to this goes I think to some of what he was talking about it being an epidemic in a Public Health crisis and that way that it is a it's an American problem and it needs American Solutions in that in terms of like it's a public problem that needs public Solutions and both in the fact that suicide doesn't just impact the individual who has taken their life it you know, I think readers shows that for every every time an individual takes their life. It's your there are a hundred plus people who are directly impacted by wage loss of that individual and I think when we were talking about some communities in particular that makes it even more of a, you know, bigger bigger ripple effect of communities like the military Community, for example It's so important what you just said because another myth is that suicide is just about depression and therefore the domain of psychologists or the mental health field, but we know that that's not true. There are different studies and research and populations and etc. Etc. And anywhere between 50 and 90% We don't need to get into a specific statistic other than to say about half of at least about half of the people that died by Suicide do not have a diagnosable mental illness, which means it's about something besides mental illness suicide remains a problem. It doesn't mean that mental health professionals can't help those people also, but we have to look elsewhere besides just professional Mental Health Providers to solve this problem. It's a much bigger problem than I mean we know this that if you treat if you just give people treatment for depression, we don't address the issue. Problem of suicide the suicide numbers don't go down. So we have to look at other ways to address the problem of

Talking about my girl taylor. Swift sold her music catalog to what's his name scooter braun. Oh yeah and then complains. After bob dylan sold his music library for three hundred million dollars. That's right And by the way He sold is popularly. Seventy eight which is another one of those amazing miracles. The bob dylan still around still kicking. Well did you hear what he said about this jerry region. But here's what's going to happen you me. We'll be watching You know football game. We're watching wednesday night football thursday night football tuesday night. Football game mini mini games That around these days and there's gonna be a commercial for flow or he'll be commercial for you name it Gimme gimme some tv for apple apple. Lot of apple commercials. That's a good one apple amazon target. And it'll be Some of my friend is blowing in the wind blowing in the wind or something blue. What's blue some blue jet blue. And they'll be tangled up in blue. You'll go what bob dylan. His stuff is going to be of vera readily available companies to put in tv commercials. Because bob dylan sold out. It's bob dylan's if you don't like it if you think you know that he's Not that kind of guy that he wouldn't ever seventy-nine by the way he sold out. He took the money. God bless him his family's gonna why he needs the money but his family is going to be fabulously wealthy for generations but companies like target nap bullen and whatever flow what is flow sell insurance. Press gress yes i defense. They're going to be able to play. Dylan's pay whatever the going rate is and they could play it and you'll hear it all over the place just like you here. You know the rolling stones in some cases or taylor swift and other artists who was amazing. When i read the story it was about some of the other artists of fleetwood. Mac sold theirs for like. I get the number here here. It is eighty million dollars they sold. It wasn't even the whole catalog eighty million dollars. Fleetwood mac and dillon skate. Like columbine could probably name more wallflower songs and he can bog way. Bob dole i. It's right over my head. I have no idea i look. I'm surprised he got three hundred million. Based on the fact that that ship has sailed a long time ago dylan receives a lump sum between two hundred and four hundred I'm not sure what the what. The stevie nicks sold their publishing catalog for eighty million dollars. The dylan portfolio six hundred songs while other bands who have sold their catalogs sold. You know taking the money. Blondie barry manilow and the estates of john lennon and kurt cobaine. I believe john lennon the beatles. Paul mccartney bought them for like a ridiculous amount of money Like eight hundred million. Paul mccartney owns well. Didn't jackson by michael jackson and then mccray jackson and a falling out story there. But there's only one to look up jerry. Three hundred million eighty million two hundred to four hundred million. What did what did brian. Wilson's father sell the beach boys catalogue for another against the wishes without the kids. Even knowing and i think he sold it for like seventy dollars and a coke or something new never spoke to his father again obviously but if the beach boys is the one you would want because of the catchy jingles. Yeah that's true point and that the father sold it for nothing. He had no idea what he had. And what the value of wasn't a guy goes. Hey i'm gonna dig deep here. I'll give you five hundred dollars. Whereas i sold and brian wilson was never the same after it happened. It's a good point. But i think dylan's got a lot of those you know catch even though they you know might be whatever. The revolutionary songs at times they are a change in blowing in the wind and songs like that which will which will fit nicely in commercials. And we'll be sick of them all with and i'm sure he had control over it and limited the exposure but i guarantee you. He sold the rights to some two songs to some commercials. I assume right Yeah i guess. So i mean i don't blame me if you're gonna die soon and you wanna take care of you. Offspring kids grandkids. You say. What the hell. What do i care if not be capitalizing on all the different changes that are going on in the music industry. I bet it's like a five person team that he has controlling the catalog right. Like it's a he. He owns time. Bob no one said a need the money for anything the the couple couple of years ago. Long before covid were dylan on went on tour and performed at three hundred nights in a year three hundred nights in one year deal and he was like seventy five and i don't know anyone that went to see him. He wasn't playing the big rooms anymore but he's just addicted to performing and singing his songs and i must have just an insane amount of money already. I mean just. But it's like what bob cousy sold all his Collectibles always memorabilia. He said what do i need it for. This is going to pay for my grandkids education. And can you blame him for that. I wouldn't. I'm a big lira. Guy when it comes to rock and roll. If you consider dylan rock and roll and dylan for what i again. He's not my bag particularly. I don't have any bob dylan on my phone. But his his lyrics. If back on my i always think that you know if you get ten best lyrics of all time. You don't need a whether they know which way the wind blows is one of the great lines right and i'm with you. I'm a lear. Emma word man to and i love you know singing along to whatever tangled up in blue and he. He won the nobel prize for whatever writing. Poetry didn't show up for the award. You know. I believe. I believe greta thune. Berg was second so she'd go toward for him but no he won the nobel prize. I think he blew the market and show up to get the thing and these the only singer or songwriter to win to win it
Looking back at the reaction to John Lennon's death 40 years ago today
"Today, the former Beatle John Lennon was killed in New York in an act of violence that shocked millions of his fans and then had been shot by a disturbed fan as he returned to his home the Dakota apartment building with his wife, Yoko Ono. Reporting live from the Dakota for BBC News at that time was Tom Brook 40. Years on Tom, who lives in New York, has been taking a very personal look back at his memories of that night and exploring Lenin's growing legacy today. Imagine where Snow heaven John Lennon's anthem Imagine is routinely performed by musicians and fans in Strawberry fields that section of New York Central Park dedicated to the former Beatles memory. Just across the street from the Dakota apartment building. 40 years ago, the Dakota was where John Lennon's life came to a sudden and horrific end. Millions of Americans first heard the news while watching Monday night football on the ABC network. Unspeakable tragedy. John Lennon, outside of his apartment building on the west side of New York City, shot twice in the back dead on arrival. It's half past six time for today. Good Good morning morning from from Brian Brian Redhead Redhead and and Libby Libby Purvis. Purvis. The The former former Beatle Beatle John John Lennon Lennon has has been been shot shot dead dead outside outside his his home home in in New New York York in in London. London. The The BBC's BBC's Today program was on the air, bringing first news of Lennon's death to British audiences. I had rushed to the Dakota found a public phone booth on West 72nd Street. Everyone around me. Lennon fans were crying soon I was on the air talking. Can you tell us exactly what happened. John Lennon was killed two hours ago. I got most of my information from talking to the literally hundreds of fans who are now congregating outside the Dakota building where they're going to hold on all night vigil, and it's a very weird scene indeed, because they're playing Lennon music. A lot of them are in tears and they're weeping on there, either stunned or they're hysterical. That seems like a long time ago and itwas over the years I've watched this journalist colleagues have covered the deaths of other pop culture figures, but none seem to bring forth the collective grief Witness with John Lennon. Celebrated New York photographer Bob Gruen was one of Lenin's friends. Well, the reaction to his death was worldwide. And it was such a shock. You know that he died, and then he died so violently. When all his life you've been talking about peace and trying to help others imagine peace. And here he was shot for that. But 40 years on the trauma has receded on John Lennon now has a new generation of fans some very young among them. 10 year old Yasha, Kigali's who I met in Strawberry Fields. I like the words and I like the music and I like the room and how it all goes together. I think that it's about something that is very important. Imagine novel the people today in these pandemic weary, conflict ridden times. Young musicians like Tom McKay, Hearn and Seattle really embrace Lenin's message. The fact that he emphasized love and peace and this idea of striving for something that doesn't currently exist. I still see that message is something that we need. Thinking about something that's beyond ourselves is just incredibly powerful. Not everything in relation to Lenin was wondrous. He could be mean and nasty, and he admitted that he abused women. None of this has really affected his legacy. If anything, his stature as a musician has grown since he died, it's still making an impact. As music journalist Jordan run talk explains. He has one of the truly great voices in rock history. And now you have artists like Liam Gallagher of Oasis and then modern bands like Tame Impala and cut worms who will get that very specific went and asked vocal sound because it's such a trademark. Hold someday join us. Today I live just four blocks from the Dakota. Sometimes I wander into strawberry fields. I think what I like most about Lenin was that he had an authentic voice. Not just musically. He did and said some stupid things, but he wasn't a fake something quite refreshing to ponder. In our age of endless posturing by politicians and celebrities. No problem.
Remembering when Howard Cosell announced he death of John Lennon
"Time out, is called three seconds remaining. John Smith is on the line and I don't care what's on the line. Howard, you have got to say way. No in the booth. Yes, we have to say it. Remember, this is just a football game. No matter who wins or loses and unspeakable tragedy confirmed to us by ABC News in New York City. John Lennon, outside of his apartment building on the west side of New York City. The most famous perhaps of all of the Penis, shot twice in the back, rushed the Roosevelt Hospital dead on arrival. Hard to go back to the game. After that news flash, which in duty bound we have to take Right I need it is remember remember watching watching that that money money night game because I'm the oldest of 45 in here. I remember that when Howard Cosell reported that Mark David Chapman had murdered John Lennon in front of his apartment in New York. And wow, There was no social media back then. But the outpouring of great people were devastated. Devastated. Remember Princess Diana? Member seeing people lined up on Michigan Avenue. They were having some type of a memorial to her in Chicago because she had been here over at Northwestern and this one, and when Elvis that, like those three stick out in my mind, remembering those being announced Am I? Harry Carey, talking about the death of Elvis and crying. Harry and Elvis were tight. And you had John Lennon and this one. It was unbelievable. I know for those who have never heard that clip. They say. You know, Howard Cosell just can't kind is barreling in with the news. You gotta understand that Howard had no finesse. Like that voice and the the cadence. That's who he was. You would think you know, Living more somber, You know, eh, Frank? We've got some sad news, but he did the way he did it. You know if you hear the way he did, as on arrived, yes, that he comes barreling in with the news. But that's who Howard Woz, and so it actually is more jolting when he gives the news. And you know, Howard puts it in perspective, though. I gotta give him credit. He says just a football game. But I got you this news, Frank back to you. And I know you know what Franklin for does after that, That's gonna be tough hearing that news because of just how How much the Beatles and how much John Lennon meant in that era. No question. Do you know it's crazy, but that's so hard. He brings up the game right, so there were three seconds left in the game at that point. It was Patriots Dolphins. The scheme was tied at 13, and they sent in Patriots kicker John Smith Toe win the game. This is Howard Cosell makes the announcement three seconds left. Here comes the kicker Patriots kicker John Smith to kick the game winning field goal and it was blocked. That game went into overtime in the Dolphins won it But like there's a story on ESPN dot com today that the kicker John Smith will forever be linked to this because it's like right after Howard Cosell, who's one of the most you know, notorious broadcasters of all time, announces such an event. Then millions of people watching are glued to their seats, sees this poor man have to go in there. He probably doesn't even know what's going on. But he's gets his field goal blocked, and now he's forever linked to it. Yeah, I remember watching that money and I found ball. Thank you. Monday night football. Woz, eh? It was a thing, man. It was a happening like we didn't have Game on month. Two games on Monday. Oh, Tuesday, we're gonna play. Oh, we gotta shut this. We're gonna play it on Wednesday and we got Thursday night football. We got 40,000 didn't have all that There wasn't even son in a football. No, it was Sunday afternoon. You had a late game. That would sometimes get you know you served by Heidi, right? Um, correct, but But when you didn't have that going on, it was it was money Money. Knight was the only night game going on. During that time. Money? No, it was the only time I can get that all the highlights of the week also is why Berman does it kind of been a traditional manner on my football today. You've seen the highlights a million times, but it just Berman in there. Give that gravitas of what? It was back in the day. So yes. Oh, my night football had such a such an enormous event. It was it was that for and also money that baseball for me as well, Because it is part of the brand going night football. Think of money. I'd baseball. The Tigers are playing with the lights. That's interesting. Yeah, Esso. It Z one of those things cap where When you have that kind of news now, keep in mind. They didn't break into the game, ABC News or anything else like that? It was announced right there at the game, Correct. It was strong, right? It wasn't We have to break away because we've got major news. Here's you know. What's that? Peter Jennings? No, no, no, no, no, Howard. And you know, in his ear there like you got to announce this and you've got to do it right now. Because I think it was the right decision. I mean, that was a massive massive name.
Ending Gun Violence in America is About Changing Attitudes
"Wanna ask you know in the sixties growing up. We lost chaff k. We lost our. We lost martin luther king. We lost the people. We spoken about tonight. You know nine thousand eight hundred. I also lost my great aunt. I was in florida on vacation between college and law school and had lunch with her and then she went on her way to another part of the state where she was killed when they entered her hotel in criminal. Senator hotel room shot through the door behind the door. We have averaged people being killed. We have famous people being cal. We have children at schools being killed whether it's connecticut or florida and we have people being shot down every day in the inner cities another small towns and throughout our country counties cities people who turned to violence and guns to solve their problems at there at the first sign of a problem often so beyond the laws you know i hope that as we move forward were also able to try to find a way to reach into communities are reaching their families and educate people and give them alternative ways to solve their problems rather than violence and guns to prove that they're macho. Were a powerful or just to use them to make a point. We have to change the attitudes in our country to not just the laws
"john lennon" Discussed on Red, Blue, and Brady
"That's what happens to public figures that you have people who try to harm you and so i think we start to see this this very violent shift involving involving public figures in firearms and so i to make them this sort of ramble into a two part question chris. I'm i'm wondering what it's like for you to sit in go and then just a few months after we have this public outcry we then see jim brady shot and when he does pass his death is ruled a homicide from that Initial shooting and then on of your end michael. You know what. What do you think if. I don't want to ask you to speak for john lennon because that's an incredibly unkind thing to do anybody. But what do you think you know. Even sort of his reflection might have been based on just a lot of the writing that he did so really unfair questions to both of you. I know but i have a microphone. So i feel like i have power in forty years. Obviously all of us remember who were alive which means that some of on this program are excluded where we were at. The seminal history. I remember like michael exactly wrong. When i learned that john lennon shot and i remember exactly why i learned that ronald reagan angiography and others whose names are often. Okay we're author shot and those kinds of summation resonate in public consciousness here. erica globally. We have people on the you remember where they were in italy. Learn and all kinds of places because we haven't uniquely american epidemic and it persists today. The only thing that i can say about that. I hope get some people hope about wearing tom. And the commitment of many pack suffered the worst. And not gonna inspired me is that we have eagle among us in this movement. Who suffered grievous injury. Her riddick loss of people they love and they will never get them back but just like sarah every day and they try to make it to the german. They're currently. I'm elected individual. Who committed their. Why give the enactment of a law benefit people they never met and i think when you look at the call the gun mile like so many other while like many other causes out there there is no one as a dealer solution is solution. It's a multiple pronged. The lucia the fact that the public health and it needs to be treated the same way when we have carpet holiday right and people were dying. We didn't look to say well. It will work or is it airbag or not wearing as rail on the highway or make people wake crossing lane. They yeah let's do all of those because the point did we want to say as many lives as possible and a thing is true. Here we accomplish right thing. We still have a real problem. There's no doubt that he helped at the federal and with your mind in offense are really where better position on a number of things including and they different but we everyone's you a fair and he leaders in steakhouses. Thank you senator road for what you've done to really push us because a huge amount of work will happen in a state and is happening in the early nineteen were about here that revenue humna working those in last two years that pretty amazing and in a number of state where we had republican wanted and republican governor. Hope for the future of florida's one of those states chris and nationally if we can get a law to provide federal grant money to the states to encourage incentivized passing this law and give them some resources to promote it. The way carl spoke about it. They don't have the money in hawaii..
Taking On Gun Laws in Hawaii
"Two. We're going back to the idea of an urpo law or protection law. He only purchase the gun for the purpose. He said quite explicitly of committing this crime. He bought it six. I believe only six weeks before he went to new york the first time so again you have him telling his wife about this where she could now. In very specific places under specific rulings could go in front of a judge. And say this is. The situation could call on foresee. This is the situation. He just purchased a gun. This is what he's saying but unfortunately at the time and in many states still there's very little option that she had there. And why would you not want to prevent that kind of violence ever. Why would you not want to have a legislative legal path for somebody to say. This person is told me they are. They're intending to commit murder with this gun. Call that's a. That's a great segue for carl who wanna get involved in this conversation. It's talked about half cited to bring the law to fruition in. And how it's working out. I think it's What i've learned about guns over the years it's the shortest distance between two points is not always a straight line. And there's a lot of beard non-linear ironies about what what is actually useful. what's not and just starting with what we think it was. Kelly talked about that. We've already talked about in. This conversation is having a gun in many cases actually more dangerous than not having a gun. Now it's not always true. And that's what makes setting policy for for firearms or a difficult because there's definitely an urban rural split where there are things that you were. You need a gun in the country that you really don't in the city and in the city they're not really used for much of anything except for senseless murders with the exception of You know sony breaks into your apartment in the middle of the night. I would certainly feel like your new justified in shooting them but so there there's a lot of there's a lot of non air guns aren't always bad but i agree that there should be. There is if you've already pointed out in many states is Red flag flag laws. That at least give a person a fighting chance to There's still a lot of things that can go wrong. I mean if his white. If i don't i don't even know his name the campaign not to give a elicits. People who've killed people with guns is work. Because i don't even know the guy's name you'd know i rosa but anyway if his if that law if the law that we have now had been in effect then they're still. It was still a little bit of a long shot that anything would have happened but at least if you have it. There's a chance there's a chance that someone says wow that's that's really kinda bonkers we better. We better contact better. Find an attorney. Who can file petition and see guns takeaway temporarily until this mood passes or until he's gotten help so it's not there's no panacea there but one of the reasons i supported was i thought actually passed when we pass the bill in hawaii. I didn't realize that it was much more effective against suicide than it is for other of for other killings even for non suicides it gives people who want to intervene who who loves somebody enough to intervene. Don't want them to go kill somebody. It gives them a chance. And i think that's why it's important. Can i ask a question that car that kelly asked or brought up earlier mind. How did you balance freedom right because this is the endless debate that we all encounter my freedoms and my freedoms are absolute and calculated in the context obviously of new york city and personal freedom. But i'm curious how you legislatively balanced individual freedoms or rights with public safety here is it was debated and what we finally settled on. Was the first motion that you make as many of your lawyers and experts say motion which means the other party doesn't have to be there. You just go straight to the judge. So we'd put up the final version of the bill puts in a provision that says you can file an exporting worship motion which means you don't have to talk to the person that's about but that only lasts for fourteen days and within fourteen days you go in you have to serve the they have to serve the parties you know as a gun who's were concerned about and then the judge will get testimony from both sides and make a decision from there so the the the short answer is due process. No constitutional right is absolute. But if you're going to take away. Generally you have to have due process and that's how we worked in the due process in this situation.
"john lennon" Discussed on Pantheon
"True of his last live performance at madison square garden with elton. John he didn't want to jump up on stage. He didn't know how he was going to be received And i think he lost a bet. I think elton john and john lennon made a bad about whatever. Gets you through the night. If that made it to number why he said he would he would jump up on stage. And i believe the story was i mean. He did not want to go up on stage because he wasn't sure like what you know. How how how. I perceive got sick before that you know. That's how nervous about going up on stage.

Yeah logger everything he did was either one off like that or played was at at the fillmore east or charity. Things was not as last errands because he did something. One of the new york following spring of for lew grade but that was his last on where you had paying customers without john and It's interesting. I didn't know until i'm john wrote his book last year. He actually met up again with john and nineteen eighty after the us. Open central arkansas. Officer that september but hyun steel hundreds of thousands of people and he actually sang johnson. Imagine that and he revealed in his book. Something i don't think anybody ever knew before he actually got together. Which on the oko. For brief period of artie after that After that show art remember that time between seventy five and eighty. It's it's like a little almost a black hole. Obviously he made some appearances and You know he was still out in the bath on a collision but For the most part nobody really knows he was being the data. From that time time right you could be. He was literally off the grid. Which is you know at that time. It's crazy but he was in he he wasn't he wasn't because he was travelling at that time he went to egypt. He went to japan every summer from In those years The last time being in nineteen seventy nine. He went to hong kong of david. Bowie up a lot in my book him hung out with john. Hong kong in nineteen. Seventy seven you can find a picture that online nobody. I don't think anybody knew that. Time but As i show him the book didn't exactly renowned solves as rockstar. He didn't become a choirboy in nineteen seventy five when he became a dad again. as bowie tells in They were hanging out in hong kong. Going to strip clubs and get drunk.

They probably broke into the middle of whatever was going on to on walter cronkite was it was walter cronkite. That was on. Yeah that was in the afternoon. So i'm sure there was soap operas or the network actually. Nbc did break into its east coast feed of the best of carson and it was in the it was in the middle of a johnny carson piece. It's funny though it's always attributed to abc howard cosell and maybe because it was so unique.

Music and i was living right next door to the dakota. Oh man bokova. I lived at fifteen west and the dakota was was one west but it's literally could look down into lennon's apartment from my apartment. I'd never seen him in the neighborhood or anything but that was so i get off the air at two. Am and i have to go home to that. And there's you know thousand people out front flowers piled up in front of the dakota police had blocked off the street. You know they weren't letting you on the street unless you live there. And i was pleased despite what local other local radio station said. I was pleased that they were listening. To people that were blasting jay. We had the bigger ratings. Still had the rep but we had the ratings.

"I felt like you really did a good job in this book by bringing together history history in general music history and that john lennon history so i think he did good create good perspective for younger readers. Thank you well. It all goes together. Doesn't i mean what's going on in the world affects the music. that's taking place in sometimes vice versa. so You really have to have a little bit of understanding of both. I think to really grasp what's going on in either of so you you were in a dorm room. You hear this. This news like i would imagine that all college could suddenly just congregate into one scenario. The guys who happened to be roommates with more southern rock type of guys might say never hear marshall tucker album it takes me right back up just bombarded with marshall charlie daniels band the allman brothers. So they weren't they weren't they weren't impacted by terrible news. By the way i was so. That's not the story. I expected the hair. Hey what's what college did you go to. Providence college in rhode island. I remember the next day Watching the news. And they think was frank reynolds on abc. At that time he talked about john successor nation for like five minutes and then it was onto the middle east and russia's like wait a minute you know go on after this out in that bay you know just seemed like such a cataclysmic events at the time and And you know it was a great loss. And i think we still feel. I mean all these years later we did you own double fantasy. Be when the. When did they album came out in november. Yeah came out in the member seventeenth and a no yesterday questions. No a couple of songs on radio. And i remember hearing started starting over which was a single came out in october. I also remember hearing one on the radio and part of just great adam back. I mean points out in the book. It was so unusual for an artist. John's caliber just eight five years off. It wasn't done at that time. You know typically john and everybody else would put out about an album a year And the album and you know it was very short window there where people could listen to the album at it. Not not listen to it. In light of what had happened to john So i never really had that opportunity. I only heard it. You know in the wake of his death and of course all the songs sort of a on that the fact that the sort of related to that some way in the irony of doing a song like starting or Point on the book came out later but the song living on borrowed time or dads in double fantasy sessions and recording song called living on borrowed time. He's got four months to live. So you know there. There were certain songs assorted foreshadowed berry making lots of associations. Afterwards i have to ask what was the impetus for the book. You have to write a book that you really turned on subject The books i write are all you know. Fact checking in digging out facts and it would be the worst job in the world. Is he warned really turned on by the subject. So that makes fun but You know it's not really work if it seems like fun and you know john had so much written about him the trying to find a new way into this Topic into this. Life was a challenge for any rider. But i thought it was really cold. sort of self issues and listen to what he was built. And as i got further into the research i realized that some of this music impacted some of the crucial decisions. He made that year Particularly decisions go back to the recording studio The decision to Ever just never figure out why he was back recording studio just a week or two hundred double fantasy out and i don't reveal that in the book childlike mining beatles. Fan syrup of. I'll tell you guys was Hit you found out that. A dj berman lounge in midtown manhattan. The really hip called the the day was playing. Yoko saw double fantasy song. Kiss kiss kiss. John was just thrilled with this new said. I wasn't that cold isn't there. She's finally getting the acceptance that i think. She's to deserved all these years. We need to put out a record. Typically aimed at that was infamous into acting the studio and work on track walking on thin ice which had been reported bachelor in summer to gun. Overdubbed some really cool guitar over that. You know really adventurous in the week before he killed So now i kind of use songs in some ways as a jumping off point tonight Put out some new information from before of we give an insider to into what may john Also as you mentioned in the book. You know the b fifty. Two's were already kind of honoring. Yoko ono with with their with rock lobster has definite. Yoko ono overtones in their john picked up on that right away. Amazing and it was absolutely true. Kate pearson in the b fifty. Two's were people that had picked up on. Yoko prior work earlier in the seventies and that sort of screamed at a person does in In rock lobsters. Right out of yoko work and john hillside mmediately and he was thrilled with that. He said well. The world is funding. Catching up yoko. And we're doing what's gone. Oban ten years prior and he said. Now i'm now we gotta get back knits radio. That song had been around for a while. Fifty two armed it on saturday night live in january at night. John really morbid. In june nineteen eighty and right away. He calls up. Yoko says let's think about getting back to the studio. Get out the axe car and sure enough. He gets back to new york the under july and by the first week of august. He's in the studio ordering double. You painted a picture of things that he might have been feeling during all the time and while he's listening to this music insecurities which nobody really thinks about and support other artists of his fellow beatles and also of yoko we know he was complex. But you painted a pretty complex picture of him which was really nice to see. I don't pretend that. I have any inside knowledge but i do delve into what other people have said and what he said on about what he was going. Through and Yeah i mean he certainly complex guy When he did his demos down in bermuda for the songs that were became part of double fantasy and milk and honey he had all the secrecy around it when he presented them to producer jack. Douglas like optimal t point out to long island and said any word of this gets out at all. The projects off even told that to the musicians at the beginning. And why was that well jack. Douglas said that he was afraid that he didn't have it anymore. This is john lennon. Were talking about insecure. Ben away for a long time. I mean that was that was. I don't know i want to compare it to like go away for a decade or more. Maybe five long years and he didn't know if the ghana accept them or is actually if you to latin his news so to speak you know is creative spark and jack. Douglas was amazed at all the songs for eight and a lot of them are and in a But yeah you're right. He was insecure. Which is i guess is part of being an artist and being creative. You'd never quite sure if you're making a fool yourself for being a genius or maybe just a thin line. I don't know. But i eat for somebody like john lennon to.
"john lennon" Discussed on What Difference Does It Make
"Welcome back to the. What difference does it make. Podcast and our tribute and acknowledgement of the anniversary of john lennon's assassination grin is the famed rock photographer. And also the author of a new memoir place right time but also a good friend of the lennon's i mean took some family photos and then you you were entrusted in nineteen eighty two kind of at the record plant and you recorded like all this. It was secret the said this double fantasy record in summer. It was a told secret. Didn't know where they were going with it and they didn't want any interruptions. Are certainly there might press about it. They wanted to to work without the distractions. But but you know yoko jones. She said be ready for us to call you in july. But i can't tell you what it is like all you did it surprise you back in the studio no surprise me The whole world was waiting for them but I had actually done a postcode from johnson. My john lennon book. Also i don't even in the new york years The postcode during the time he was raising. Sean and on the front is a picture of two people in the newspaper. Who did and on the back was a picture of a brace sun. And just a self portrait of yokoun sean. And it just seemed like in. The news was a negative idea. And he and your sean sprite sunshine of life and that was a time when people say john lennon wise any working. That post really sums up why he was working and unfortunately is prophetically true when he did come back where we all know what happened now. This is forty years ago Where where were you at the time. in studio Around december six simple theft and we were up on night friday night until saturday morning and actually thursday night infighting night and i took some patients of them on the sidewalk in front of a record plan on forty fourth street. Saturday morning johnson. I'll see you later and his home at my darker monday night. Developing those issues china finished up in a rush into action supposed to see them. That might an shoulder patient. Before i went to voicemail. And i phone call that he had been shot and of course the first shot doesn't mean dead and then a friend of mine called up and city on the tv. That john was dead and now is the worst. Most prominent thing. I ever heard casino. What you can fix that. We can make that better since then. It's a such a sad endings. Essentially create story. But i'm trying to think about the forty years that we did have an all the art music that we got from john lennon and he did an interview november the month before he died with david sheff playboy magazine whose excess an interview and he talks about how he was feeling and what he learned. Well in the five years will raising show on and he learned about Healthy diet he learned actually unusually for john lennon. You learned about delayed gratification. He learned about the responsibility and the joy that comes from taking care of your family and he talks about all of that in the playboy interview on bringing up. Because that's going to be republished next month. I believe people want to know about john lennon. They can hear from john lennon in the plate. We into rather than hearing other people talk about it. You want to see my book. John on the new york years has some great stories in my new book. Out of you you portrayed that shift nicely to talked about him discovering the macaroni macrobiotic diet and and other healthy lifestyle choices. Like you're talking about. We did talk about it in a book a little bit very important. He went from being a drunk rock rockstar. In the beginning to being a responsible parent by the end it was a real chance for mason. Masonry learning process. It was very lovely the way you portrayed the friendship and getting to know them in the family really interesting. Yeah and you're still close with with yoko. And sean and all yeah. So that's wonderful. We also are talking with tim english. Who was kind of like us but a little bit older and was in college at the time and so he's going to tell his story of what went on at the time when he was in college. He's got a book out. It's called john lennon. Nineteen eighty playlist. Which is is kind of a cool premise. For the book he researched the music that john lennon was listening to in nineteen eighty documents of for us. And it's very interesting to see and it kind of gives you a. Oh window into. John lennon's musical preferences which was really nice. So holly have you read the aerosmith burke. We interviewed richard beanstalk. But you actually go through the book. I read the book and i looked at the book. I admired all the photos. The book is called. The ultimate illustrated history of the bad boys from boston. This is an updated edition in honor of their fiftieth anniversary. And yes i did read it. How about you yes. It's fun to look at. It's one of those things where you read it and then just a leisurely pace actually because there's so many great pictures and Mementos and just memories of aerosmith and you kind of go down the rabbit hole of like. Oh man i remember remember. This record was really fun and that you ranked pictures everything the memorabilia that ticket stubs. Everything was fabulous to look at but there were so many stories. There was some. It's illustrated history. But it is chock full of information about the band. It is kind of like when you get a cd. Set of a ban. Aerosmith is put out the box. And you open up. And there's a small booklet and you get you know maybe like forty pages of information and it kind of covers a little bit of the ban. This book covers everything. It's really great. I highly recommend you go out and pick this up at all. Your favorite independent bookstores. What is the name of this book again because this is a mouth bowl. It is a mouthful aerosmith. Fiftieth anniversary updated edition. The ultimate illustrated history of the bad boys from boston. Where were you in. Nineteen eighty on december eighth nineteen eighty dorm room in. Providence rhode island Watching monday night. Football and i was one of the worst nights in my life Devastated you howard. Cosell amman. deliver the news and you know sometimes do these things they say. Well he's been taken to the hospital and maybe he's got a ball through. And that was the case with michael jackson taken to the hospital but in this case just said that said he's do a at the hospital. So it's just a heartbreaking devastating Thing i think for anybody who was around. But especially if you were a beatles fan and a lennon like yeah It's amazing that that's the same story for for most beatles fans. I mean everyone discovered in the us. Everyone discovered the beatles on ed sullivan. Everyone was watching it celebrate. It seems like everyone was what at the time. One thousand nine hundred eighty. All of america watches monday night football. And that's really how everyone heard the story absolutely one of the things i tried to join. The focus provide a little background on the world of nine thousand nine hundred eighty and l. We said different world and a lot of ways some some way similar but as far as communication went. I mean you mentioned two things. Beatles on at solvent sixty four were seventy five million people watch. The only tv show gets set audience today as the super bowl. I mean there's no you couldn't replicate that even if you wanted to is just too much media and too many different options likewise nine thousand nine hundred eighty and i don't know we didn't why was we didn't have cable until a year or two later wanted to you're watching. Tv no confront attainment Monday night you had five or six choices. One of which was monday night. But also i mean it was just a very different If you wanted to hear a song you love at that time you had to turn on the right to go out and buy it or turn on the radio and that they might have some so you know pretty younger readers especially i tried to show you know. Different was and a long time ago now..
"john lennon" Discussed on What Difference Does It Make
"Podcast. What's going on today well. Today's day how how you doing. It's day wow all right. I'm doing well i am doing well are you doing. I'm good because i i. It was five minutes. Toodle showtime when i realized. Oh my god i got myself for For big talk today So you have a you have a lot of good info that you called in five minutes exactly planning this episode for a little bit of time during our talks with many different people we touch on different topics and lately with the number of The our gas. We've talked about john lennon. Because it has been this will be the fortieth anniversary of his assassination and so we thought it would be a good opportunity to to kind of talk about john lennon. Kind of dreading this episode and looking forward to it. And i've been reading a lot and kind of brought back a lot of a lot of memories and having just visited new york a few weeks ago and i stood in front of the dakota for a little while tried to get some of my Some john lennon mojo. A lot of people do that. I do that. Go through strawberry fields and you know. It's amazing because yoko still lives there. you know. that's i don't know if i i don't know it's tough to leave. Please like the the dakota that's where you're living But i would also imagine that. That's a tough place to be at. Even forty years removed. I would think so too. It's you obviously stayed there for you. Know for her own reasons. And i didn't realize. I was looking at information about the dakota. How many celebrity you know personalities famous people have lived there over the years and how many were rejected. Since it's co up. There were a bunch rejected by the board. It's pretty amazing. But i guess you can see at. The building does appear to be pretty regal west side of new york. We'll spill the beans. Who's not appropriate for the dakota surprisingly melanie griffith. And antonio banderas. Who wants them to to live there. That's weird that is strange. Who else i wonder. I wonder what the reasons were due to. Its those boards are tough from what i understand. You know it's like a college admissions. it isn't. I know a co-op you know. I know that they're very particular. So the board rejected them and the guy who tried to sell his ownership to them expressed his disappointment with the way. The building seems to be changing and he told the new york times interview. What's so shocking is that the building is losing. Its touch with interesting people more and more of moving away from creative people and going towards people who just have the money so some of the other personalities. You might be surprised maybe not so much as the buzzfeed thing. You may be surprised. Click to no no so gene. Simmons was rejected. Billy joel and carly simon. That's that's odd. I'm actually surprised that they took john lennon because at the time he was fighting for citizenship. Do you know when they moved in. When did they move into the coda. They moved in nineteen seventy-three he was given his. Us resident alien registration green card on the bicentennial of the american revolution. July fourth nineteen seventy six. He was also informed that he would be eligible to apply for us. Listen ship in one thousand nine hundred eighty one so So there you go so they did. Let him into the building without a green card. Yeah says so yoko. Ono japanese citizen was granted. Permanent resident status in nineteen seventy three and the couple's sunshine is citizen. Having been born in new york at the time they moved in he wasn't even a us citizen and they let him in which is crazy yet. When you think about it back at the time if if you believe you know the the observation of the guy who tried to sell his apartment to john lennon yoga on they were moving. More towards money and less tour. Less toward creative types. Like john lennon. At the time that lennon john lennon and yoko ono moved in there. Were probably more creative people in the building. Then these creative people ruined everything. Yes and they will go for the money. Do you know why it was called the dakota what happened why this is the stuff that interests me. Yeah it's funny. You're spiraling go down the rabbit hole. Go ahead go down the rabbit hole. Yeah but also. Because since i was just there and i you know i it just such an. I wonder if the building would be interesting if you didn't know the history of it but it was really it's just so so much more depth to it when you're standing there because it and this was the according to the manager of the building in a he said it probably so we don't know for sure. It was called the dakota because it was so far west and so far north and comparing it to the dakota territory because it was considered so remote and i guess at the time at central park west and seventy second it was considered sparsely inhabited and remote from the rest of manhattan which is crazy to think about. I would wanna live there. It is the dakotas it's crazy. That's funny but anyway. We are talking about john. Les we we went to the dakota which is significant. Obviously but yes. So where were you was fifteen as we're well. You're probably fourteen. And i know that monday night. Football was on my house. It was much always on in my house. I can't remember exactly. But i am certain. And you know whether i'm conjuring up this vision or is really true. I must have been in my room probably doing homework. I mean fifteen year in high school right school or yeah i was on the phone. You were you. Were talking to have no idea who is talking to. But i remember my dad coming in and telling me because he was watching monday night football and i you know i was just then becoming a big fan of the beatles think i was in my final year in junior high and Yeah i had a had a good friend that we used to like quiz each other beatles trivia technically i mean it was I was just kind of getting into the fandom because there is so much a to absorb with the beatles was weird hearing that but it was also as being a fourteen year old guy. I didn't take into i. Didn't really understand what forty minutes it seemed like. That was all i. I don't know what forty you know. What that ages. it's like okay. Well you know he was forty. But i think elvis died forty two. I assume that's when that's when rockstar dying off the let's at that age as the elderly late but it was something that really affected me. It's even being offended. I was also. I was a big beatles fan. I think at that age you're connecting. The implication of what just happened with the music that you that is such a big part of your life. You know what. I mean it because it maybe it was a little bit less for us at that age about the personalities of the band. I mean i was. You know i love them. And paul mccartney.
