"Hey, how's it going? Going okay. And we want to know how things are going for the royals, which is still sort of in question here. We don't know when the royals results will be different and improved, though I'm sure we will discuss that, but it seems from afar that they are already a different team from a process perspective to invoke an old Dayton Moore buzzword. Mike matheny is out, Matt quatro is in and with him a whole host of seemingly new school coaches instead of the Cal eldred old guard, so how much did the royals need to modernize? How much can a team modernize in the course of a single off season? What differences have you observed this spring compared to last spring? Yeah, that's a big question, right? Is how much is this change going to help on the field, but just from a process standpoint, it's completely different. The vibe around camp is very different thanks to manager Mac otoro. It's the players Clubhouse kind of vibe with him from Tampa, along with Q, he brought over bench coach Paul Hoover from Tampa, so there's a lot of new ideas from the catching standpoint. That the royals are hoping the pitchers will take. And then the entire pitching department is pretty new at the big league level. Brian Sweeney came over from Cleveland, he's the pitching coach, the assistant pitching coaches Zach bove, who came over from the twins minor league side, and then the bullpen coach is much stutter who was a royal coach in the minor leagues, focused a lot on player development, kind of that. I guess you could say bridge between research and development and the players. He worked with a lot of lower level pictures. So he's the bullpen coach now, has a lot of familiarity with a lot of these young guys up here. So it's very different. What I'm hearing is different, what I'm seeing is different and like I said at the beginning, we'll see how much that changes on the field this year. I guess it's good that Macquarie goes by Q because I've seen a number of baseball raiders talk about how it's either hard to say quatre or spell cocher. I don't know if you have found that to be a difficulty at all. I don't know if that's why he goes by you. But that could be. I'll just say, yeah, I just say Q yeah, I wanted to ask about the pitching because when we last thought that the royals might be ready to take a step forward as an organization, a lot of that was being driven by this group of, at the time, young former college pitchers who seemed like they had really high floors and might be able to move the team forward in the division. And all of those guys have struggled to varying degrees as their careers have progressed. So what are you seeing in terms of differences for how they are actually trying to implement pitch design and help these guys to maybe write the ship and be the, you know, the guys we thought they would be when they were prospects. Yeah, absolutely. I think a lot of it has to do with new ideas that these new coaches are bringing a willingness to use the data and the technology. The resources that they have at their fingertips and bring it to the players in a way that the players want and understand have an individualized plan for each guy to help them take the next step. This isn't a cookie cutter approach. This is what each guy needs and they're part of the conversation. This off season, what the pitching coaches did was visit or talk to every single picture and say, what are your goals? What do you want to do? What are you working on? And then the kind of married their ideas together to create a plan for spring training and what I've heard from a lot of pictures and scene is almost every single one of them has a new pitch. They're working on something when it comes to pitch groups pitch design. That's Zach bove specialty, and they want to kind of take their take the next step and that's how they think they're going to do it. So I think it's just a lot of new ideas and a lot of new resources that they can use and are encouraged to use that I think is the biggest difference. And what about at the front office level, which obviously has to work closely with the field staff and hired the field staff so you would think that they would be in sync, but moving on from day more after his extremely long tenure, a, what was it that finally did him in? Was it just the lack of results at the big league level? Or was it a perception that the royals had fallen behind in some ways? And then making the change to JJ picolo, who was Morris right hand man for many years, how big of a philosophical shift does that represent? Yeah, I think people see JJ in charge and they may think, well, it's just dating more in number two, right? But he is different. He thinks about the game in a different way. He utilizes his resources as in a different way as well. What Dayton did in Kansas City was incredible. It should not be forgotten. Those banners will always hang at Kauffman stadium, but I think owner John Sherman, what he wanted was something new, something different, and I just remembered this stuck out so much at this press conference last September when Sherman announced JJ as the new general manager, Sherman said, we have all the data. We just need to figure out how to use it in a way that helps his team take the next step forward. So they feel good about what they have in place. They just had to they want to figure out how to take the next step using that data, that technology, the analytics, and throughout the entire organization, not just at the big league level.

"Book fighting for justice because, you know, frankly, I've had anything any children or anybody who's ever looked into the JFK assassination or Marilyn Monroe's death or whatever because years ago what 5 6 years ago, I came across this remarkable woman Dorothy kilgallen. And all I knew about her at the time and I admit this was that she was a she was a panelist on the popular CBS show what's my line on CBS every night at every Sunday Night at 10 o'clock watch by about 10 million people, which was a huge audience that and he was great at that guessing the occupations. And so when I was working on a book about Melvin Belli, who was Jack Ruby's attorney, you know, who I practiced wrong with have been in 1980s. The gentleman who was a good friend of Belle I said, well, you know, about northern kilgallen and Melvin Belli. And he said, yeah, she was at the Jack Ruby trial, and I said, I gotta look into this woman. Well, it was just, you know, the Pandora's box, to use a good term. She was a remarkable woman, colleague, dropout, became a celebrated journalist for the New York journal of America in New York City, had her own column that was syndicated to 200 newspapers across the country. She had a radio show listened to by a million people every day. And she had covered the doctor Sam shepherd case, which became the huge thing of television show and Moby. And the Terrell Lindbergh case. So I started looking into Dorothy in the first thing I found out was that how did Dorothy kill gallon know Melvin Belli? Well, Dorothy was at the ruby trial. And I'm like, you and me and anybody else who's ever looked into the assassination, she was there. In the front row, listening to Jack Ruby's testimony, not believing a great deal of it. And he has a statement that he has made. Not believing a great deal of it. And immediately, he turned herself towards the akaroa because he was the only reporter out of 400 to interview ruby adhesive trial. And what he told her then, senator New Orleans, and we can get into exactly what that investigation was all about. So that was the first book that reporter in it too much, which I'm blessed to say is the bestseller. And people still read that book very a great deal. Then I found the really trial transcripts and put those in a book called denial of justice. I'd also written a book called the boys and daydream about Joe Kennedy fixing the 1960 election. And then I was able to connect with deaths of Maryland and 62 Dorothy JFK and 63 and Dorothy in 65. And I was surprised that I could do that because I didn't even know that Dorothy and Maryland knew each other, but I was able to do that. And then I get the mother load here in February. And because I got a call from a gentleman who told me that he was a legislative assistant to the Warren commission member, doctor excuse me, senator John Sherman Cooper of Kentucky. And he said, also, mister Joao and the female, I knew Dorothy killed Calvin. And if you can imagine my ears perked up because there's not too many people around that would remember Dorothy. So this man was named amore soul, a very distinguished statesman and author, and we used to work for Bobby Kennedy when Kennedy was in the attorney general's office. And he started telling me about Dorothy and the fact that he went to parties and senator Cooper's home in Georgia town and said right next to Dorothy kilgallen and I wanted to yell and scream and I said, all right, he said yes. He could describe her as a bright lightbulb. He said he was even invested. He was even quizzing me during the meal because he wanted to know what I know about senator Cooper and the Warren commission. And all of that, and he said, yeah, and senator Cooper, mister y'all, I rolled with him to the hearings at the Warren commission. In his Saab, he was a tall man, had trouble getting in there, but we went to the hearings. I sometimes could sit in the back and listen to what was going on. And then he started just telling me, nobody's ever got inside the Warren commission. The code of silence they had in all of that. And yet I got an eyewitness who was right there. And he started telling me about things like the commission members know about Jack or at least connection to organized crime, but they don't want to touch it. It's more than as raw but Hoover and early war on the chief justice pushed the Oswald alone concluded Linda Johnson wants to cover up the truth and move on. And then there are other statements that they were going to go ahead and release the odd rat alone report for God and country and all these kinds of things. And so I was just amazed that mister Webb called me all of that, but the main thing that he told me about Dorothy to answer your question is that Dorothy knew about the corruption in the warring commission because one of the statements was I didn't find it here. The commission members say this Oslo the conclusion is good for God and country, but there is internal corruption and I don't know why, and that was John Sherman Cooper, who I found out was a very close friend of JFK's. And all of that information was credible. I've been able to substantiate it through all histories of Cooper is that university of Kentucky and university of Florida, so in fighting her justice, all of that in there, but the scary part of that is that wolf told me that Dorothy knew about the corruption at the Warren committee. So as November of 65, comes along and he not only knows about ruby's testimony at the trial when you can flex with his roaring commission testimony that he exposed. Now if he knows about the corruption and everything and he was writing this book Random House kind of a telehealth about the assassination told people, you know, the wrong people knew of what I know about the assassination would cost me my life. I'm afraid for my life and the country I'm going to get a gun at all of that and shortly after she got back from New Orleans investigating Carlos Marcelo, who she believed in orchestrated JFK's death. They found her dead in a row in a bedroom and she never slept in wearing clothes. She would have wanted to go out an empty second or a bottle was there. He had her makeup on her, her hair piece and her, you know, her things that didn't make any sense. It was a stage death scene for sure. But unfortunately, the conclusion was that she had died of an overdose. I threw it in my book that she was murdered. There were three barbiturates in her system, not just one. But now because of the new information and lighting for justice, I just know how much danger he was in as November of 1965 came along. So my question, the preliminary question is this, Mark, you have proven that she was murdered that the man that murdered her is still alive. He's been notified that you have the information. Bring us up to date in regards to that. I don't want to regret in my life is that he died about four months ago. I had been talking with him as a man named Ron pataki, who we had proven. Was certainly a confidant of Dorothy kilgallen. He was a Midwest journalist. People will read about him kind of looking to be with Dorothy so that he could move up in the social circles. She unfortunately shared with him a lot of her JFK assassination and evidence and we were able to find out that he was compromised, probably by J. Edgar Hoover because he was attacking within some trouble of some sort. And compromise the Dorothy by giving we believe in your Hoover. Information about Dorothy knowing that the whole thing with the army Oswald didn't make sense. It was more than Oswald alone. She knew about Jack Ruby and she also told him, you know, Kentucky called over that she knew about the corruption in the war in commission. Well, there's a book she was writing the Random House would have had all that in there. And so the copper there is that unfortunately pataki is dead, a very guilt ridden lonely man when he died, but he died before I could put him in prison. That Dorothy, you know, he was the reporter, and then too much. And therefore, you know, they had to silence

The Department of Defense has cancelled its nearly two year old at $10 Billion Jetty Cloud Computing Project, with Microsoft, saying the landscape evolved and it's vowing to pursue a different cloud deal with Microsoft. Amazon possibly More service providers. The Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure Project Jedi Project had been mired in legal challenges and conflict of interest concerns since its inception in October of 2019 when the Pentagon and Microsoft signed a $1 million Cloud computing contract that was supposed to kick off $10 Billion.10 Year project. However, Amazon alleged in a lawsuit that the Pentagon selection of Microsoft had been unduly influenced by politics. John Sherman is the acting chief information officer. For the Department of Defense, he explained the situation Truly about enabling our joint warfighting across our combatant commands and the rest of the department industry has evolved in cloud, and so has the department. We started jetty several years ago. The single cloud approach would have been right back then. But we've moved beyond that. Having more than one cloud service provider. To be able to provide multiple capabilities for our war fighters is critical for us to be able to succeed in our 21st century fight. Cybersecurity specifically very much in focus right now, Given the hacks we're seeing ransomware, etcetera. How will you keep this cloud or these clouds secure through our rigorous accreditation process and our close partnership with the U. S Cyber Command under General Paul knock a Sony in close partnership with the cloud service providers themselves. And how we're going to accredit them at all three security levels on classified secret and top secret should single source have ever been on the table. How did you come to multi vendor? Was it because of this legal process? We've gone through over the last couple years and how much time has been wasted. It was about the mission Need I had noted in my previous job is the intelligence community CEO several years ago that I did think Single cloud approach early on for the department. Offense was the right and move when this was first conceived of several years ago, But as I noted, a minute ago, the technology shifted our cloud convergence. E within the Department of Defense has shifted and we haven't stood still. Had the warrant occurred with Jedi when it was supposed to happened several years ago. We would have been right now talking about a multi cloud ecosystem already. So we're at that point already now in mid 2021. So we are where we thought we were going to be just not without the benefit of having a single cloud to really get up on our skis with this, But we're ready now, because if we have roughly 13 what we call fit for purpose clouds. Across the military services, and we become more conversant on how to use this. And moreover, there's a mission need for multi cloud and we're ready to move to that, and it is the right thing to do.

I'm looking at you brooklyn bridge and statue of liberty as well as meaning inventors industrialists emigrants and workers. The gilded age has plenty to keep us busy. We'll do it all in the next few episodes but first we need to lay the political groundwork of this era whose reputation for corruption is perhaps only exceeded by its voter turnout by meeting a few. Us presence we start with president. Rutherford b hayes Rutherford we haven't thought about this fifty something handsome bearded president from ohio. Much since episode. Seventy six. I told you about his less than ideal ascension to the presidency at that time and you can go back to listen to all sorts of details if you'd like but here's a quick summary in the election of eighteen seventy six. The republicans run former union. General and ohio governor rutherford hayes against democrat and new york governor samuel j tilden. The popular vote is clearly democrat but the electoral college results are just messy enough for the republicans to push back. Congress handles the unprecedented situation by setting up an electoral commission which then selects republican. Rutherford hayes now being amir decade out from the civil war this could turn really nasty but the parties find a way to make peace. The democrats will accept a republican victory if the republicans agree to put an end to military occupation in the south. This is the compromise of eighteen. Seventy seven also seen as the end of reconstruction. I know this whole situation leaves. Roth refers eighteen. Seventy six election tainted at best if that's somewhat ironic because the moderate bearded in is actually rather honest man delivering his inaugural address on march fifth. Eighteen seventy seven rutherford contends that quote. He serves his party best. Who serves the nation. Best close quote. of course. Such a bipartisan attitude. Doesn't sit well with all in his party. The late nineteenth century republican party is split into two major factions stalwarts and half breeds while the party as a whole is fueling moral fatigue and caving are reconstruction stalwarts consider themselves the true heirs of the party. They want to maintain closed. Ranks against democrats have no problem with sectionalism and believe patronage through a spoil system is just good politics on the other hand we have the half breeds which is a stalwart insult suggesting there only half republican half breeds want the nation to move past north v south sectionalism. The also call the spoils system a corrupt practice and do not approve of this process. By which the party in power hand civil service offices to their own rather than to the most qualified president rutherford hayes himself aligns more with the half breeds. He still manages to upset both wings of the party though by refusing to pick between them and cabinet selections after failing to charm either faction he proceeds with any reconstruction is faced with the great railroad strike and finally puts great energy into pursuing civil service reform. Let's start were rougher does ending reconstruction in april eighteen seventy seven. The president orders federal troops to stop guarding statehouses in the remaining occupied states of louisiana and south carolina. Old guard out of office radical republican. Benjamin wade is furious. He writes you know with what untried zeal. I labored for the emancipation of the slaves. And i suppose hosed hayes was in full cord but i've been deceived a trade and even humiliated by. The course is taken. The sad truth is this betrayal of which ben speaks coming regardless of who won the white house apart from a few old radical republicans and black americans. The nation is exhausted with construction and ready to end it at the expense of black americans as long as that brings peace thus the infamous compromise of eighteen seventy seven that has a former union general president hoping for the best. He hands white southern leaders. They're quote unquote home rule. The best won't follow jim. Crow will rutherford also faces the challenges of the great railroad strike of eighteen. seventy seven. we got a taste of this in the opening of today's episode but the strike reaches far beyond pittsburgh treatment. Fight back at their slashed wages in baltimore. Saint louis chicago and still elsewhere for months on end rutherford responds with conventional wisdom of his day which is mobilizing federal troops. But he doesn't like it. He writes in his journal quote. The strikes have been put down by force but now for the real remedy. Can't something be done. Education of the strikers by judicious control of the capitalists by wise general policy to end or diminish the evil close quote. The conflict between corporations and workers won't be resolved by rutherford or any gilded age president. For that matter as i hinted at earlier strikes will happen regularly for decades and will certainly cover some of them in greater detail touring later episodes but there is one problem. This president feels he can and is determined fix patronage in civil service. Rutherford starts to tackle the spoils system or patronage in april eighteen. Seventy seven he tells treasury secretary. John sherman to investigate the spoils system at play in customs houses across the nation that includes new york where the powerful stalwart republican. Senator roscoe conklin often called lord rosco for the elite and powerful wing which he carries himself runs his patronage machine.

Who had been convicted of or indicted for a crime and therefore excluded billy. Yeah this was crazy. I mean it's just like this like weird little turf war in this town say little. That's not good.

By jesse evans to witness the murder billy wrote to governor wallace on march thirteenth. Seventy nine with an offer to provide information on the chapman murder in exchange for his amnesty on march fifteenth governor wallace replied agreeing to a secret meeting to discuss the situation. Billy met with wallace in lincoln on march seventeenth. Eighteen seventy nine. Wallace promised billy protection from his enemies and clemency if he would offer his testimony to a grand jury and on march twentieth wallace wrote to billy to remove all suspicion of understanding. I think it better to put the arresting party in charge of sheriff kimbrel. Who shall be instructed to see that. No violence is used. Billy responded on the same day agreeing to testify and confirming wallace's proposal for his arrest and detention in a local jail to assure his safety on march twenty. First billy let himself be captured by a posse led by sheriff. George kimble of lincoln county as agreed billy provided a statement about chapman's murder and testified in court. However after billy's testimony the district attorney refused to set him free still in custody. Several weeks later. Billy began to suspect wallace had betrayed him and would never grant his amnesty. Billy of course escaped from lincoln county jail on june seventeenth. Eighteen seventy nine. Billy did a good job keeping a low profile until january tenth. Eighteen seventy nine. This is one of my favorite stories When he shot and killed jo- grant who was a newcomer to the area. Billy had received word that grant was going to try and kill him. So billy came upon grant at hargrove's saloon and told him that he admired his pistol so he asked if he could see it he noticed that it only had three rounds in the pistol in position. To where the next time the hammer was pulled it would be an empty chamber. As suspected grant then pointed his pistol at billy when he pulled the trigger. Nothing happened and billy was able to shoot grant in the head. Wow yeah On november second eighteen eighty garrett was elected sheriff of lincoln. County pat garrett. Yes you've heard that name just like billy. Garrett was an outlaws well although garrett was only responsible for killing one man in texas that is Even though he surrendered to the authorities and was never prosecuted One of the things that pack That other sheriffs of lincoln county didn't do that made him like a much. Bigger threat to billy was that he obtained a deputy. Us marshall commission. Which allowed him to go after. Billy anywhere in the us. So he wasn't just sheriff of this town. He was able to go anywhere and go after. I remember this from our body and clyde episode where there was like a big part of why they couldn't catch them as like people couldn't necessarily go between cities or states. Are you still can't well right unless you have unless marshals. Yeah yeah so that makes sense. And december nineteenth nineteen eighty billy. The kid charlie baudry tom. Pickett billy wilson and tom affiliated road into fort sumner in weight were deputy garrett and his posse mistaking failure for the kid. Garrett's men opened fire and killed affiliate billy and the others escaped unharmed in three days later. Garrett's posse cornered billy and his companions at a spot called the stinking springs. I'm they killed one man and captured the other on april fifteenth. Eighteen eighty. one billy. The kid was sentenced to hang by judge warren bristol but guess what but he escaped again but this time he killed two deputies in the process and july fourteenth eighteen eighty one garrett visited fort sumner to question a friend of the kids whereabouts in learned that he was staying with a mutual friend. Pedro menard pete maxwell. There's so many of these people with four names in this In around midnight garrett went to maxwell's house. The kid was asleep in another part of the house which surprises me that he was asleep at midnight. Right i mean. He seemed like a partier well at this point safe but he woke up in the middle of the night and entered maxwell's bedroom where garrett was standing in the shadows. The kidney net recognized the man standing in the dark. he asked him repeatedly ken. S who is it in garrett replied by shooting at him twice the first shot hit the kid in the chest just above the heart while the second missed garrett's account leaves it unclear whether billy was killed instantly or took some time to die a few hours after the shooting. Local justice of the peace assembled a coroner's jury of six people the jury members interviewed maxwell and garrett and billy's body and the location of the shooting were examined. The jury certified the body as billy's and according to a local newspaper the jury forman said it was the kids body that we examined billy was given awake by candlelight and he was buried the next day and his grave was denoted with wooden marker now since the time of his death. There's been a growing amount of people that believe that gerrit which was actually billy's friend. I mean yeah didn't actually kill him. They felt that he didn't kill him.

Kevin undersecretary of climate change again, I repeat, though we have a saying an undersecretary of climate change, why don't we have an undersecretary of volcanoes, Earthquakes, sunspots Continental drift? Why Why is is climate change? Getting more? Emphasis than volcanoes. Track. You're next with Howie Carr. Go ahead, Chuck. How are you? Great to talk to you this question. It has nothing to do with climate change or anything like that has to do with the future about 22 months from now. When the Democrats might figure that the House would go to the Republicans. I think they're 47 feats that might Uh, yeah, They announced that there. Yeah. Kevin McCarthy, and I think the Republicans announced that they were going to go. There's 47 Democrats. They consider very vulnerable. Yes. Go ahead. Correct. So my question is, if it does go Republican than the speaker of the House will go Republican. Correct after Democrats if the Democrats sense But the house is going to go Republican would they get rid of Biden before the 22 elections so Pelosi could move to be vice president? No, I You know Pelosi, Pelosi would only be in line she wouldn't become vice president. If if Biden leaves under the 25th amendment, or any any other circumstances in cup, Kamila Harris becomes president. Then, as long as there's no vice president, the speaker would be second in line, but she has the right to a point. A A new vice president. I don't know. I can't remember who the new vice president if he has to be appointed, has to be approved by the Senate or the House or both. But remember when Spiro T. Agnew, Nixon's vice president, was convicted of taking payoffs in the White House, he resigned And Nixon appointed Gerald Ford the I think it was the House minority leader at the time from Michigan to become the vice president and Gerald Ford was also a guy who for people who were into the Kennedy assassination theories he was on the Warren Commission. And the reason he was on the Warren Commission is because the FBI had tape Of him with prostitutes in Bobby Bakers. Then of his brothels, But he ran out of a hotel in Washington, D. C So they had control. Of Gerald Ford, the Republican. The other Republican on the Warren Commission investigating the assassination of JFK was John Sherman Cooper. Who was who was very, very close to the Kennedy state they shared. They shared at least one woman. Anyway, I'm I don't meet the dye aggress, but I did. You could read all about this. And Kennedy Babylon volumes one and two Incidently, and that kind of leads up to our next spot. My friends that even pure have done it again and for as long as supplies last thunderstorm air purifier..
"john sherman" Discussed on Newsradio 700 WLW
"You look at another death will be Kansas City again, one of the legitimate small markets in baseball, But they've gone out this winter. They find Mike minor two year deal. You signed Carlos Santana to a two year deal on and that's his owners. Isn't John Sherman the new order? They're deciding here? Look, we're going to put the money into the franchise. I I try to not be overly sympathetic to the owner's, largely because they made money, so the league made money. Every year from 2003 to 2019 and made a lot of money. It also did things like so and will be advanced Media actually be damn text for $2 billion business. That money never really made its way down to the field. But if you look at a situation like the red Where they were going to run their largest payroll ever last year Now they didn't end up spending all of that money because the players Hate played for a pro rated salary. So the only ended up sending about $50 million in payroll, but They also didn't bring in anybody the stadium. They have a very small local TV deal. They didn't get the revenue sharing. I'm sympathetic to the idea that seems in certain situations. Will look to lower payroll. We've seen that same Lewis as well, and that's another team where, when they were so big draw so well that that's such a large part of their revenue plants. Have to have no fans in the stands for a year takes takes a bite out of you look at the Reds, making all those investments last winter expected to draw 2.12 point two million with a winning team. They made the playoffs, but they can't even benefit from that this year. That's that's the baseball player, right? You play well one year and then get people excited, and you bring him to the park next year. I do think that there are teams How are particularly hurt by the pandemic that panics Don't really fit our usual models of talking about this time, a little more generous. To certain ownership groups and certain teams than I otherwise might. The Reds need a shortstop. I mean, there's no question about it. Freddy Galvis is I mean, they've moved on d d Gregorius, I think is still sitting out there. Marcos emptiness still sitting out there. Um, and draw to Simmons is still sitting out. There are DEA any of those have fit here for Cincinnati? I mean, I would think that a simian in Gregorius, you know, might be a little pricey for them. Really All of them are none of them. They're gonna be particularly frightening and Victoria's coming off the one year Hello deal with the police. He was good, but he wasn't great. You look at Simmons coming off an injury plagued you're probably the best player of the four because he's still a very facility. He's what people think. Omar Vesco's. He's the second best defensive shortstop on been sending in, you know again. Had a big year in 2019 wasn't good Last year, you can get all of these guys. You know, let's for much less than they would have cost you a year ago because they're coming off the bag years. And, of course, all the other things we're talking about here. I've loved stemming and has a fit. I think you get him on a two year probably to 18 to 22 22 something like that. And you walk it in for two years in the hopes that Jose Garcia develops and he could take over in 2022 23. I should say Garcia was pushed up last year. He's certainly not ready. I think you've got to give him at least on the figure under my such stunning a two year deal, any of those guys on one of those types goes back to deals with work. In the end, you could always bring back Galvis on what probably would be, You know, one year for million Dollar deal, There's really not much more market. Uh, but this is this is a situation that can be solved with money and was not a whole lot of money again. I don't think the wreck havoc, understand? But I think they can invest in a major way short stuff so they don't have one right now. When do you So what shouted by the way we're chatting with Joshi in his newsletter is just fantastic. It is so inexpensive and so Informative and he's writing up a storm. Now is he mentioned cause spring training is just around the corner and again, Joe how two people find this. I talk a lot about it, but I'd rather hear you tell us exactly where you everybody can find this cause it's it's so rich. With baseball information. Appreciate that Can. The newsletter is something I've been doing now for 11 years, you could.
Facebook and Antitrust
"Beginning to look a lot. Like sherman. Senator john sherman. That is who in one thousand nine hundred ninety sponsored the antitrust law that bears his name one hundred thirty years ago he pronounced quote if we will not endure a king as a political power. We should not into her king over the production transportation and sale of any of the necessities of life on february. Eighteenth one thousand nine hundred to without any warning. The president ordered his justice department to file suit against one of the trust. In which j. p. morgan had major interest the northern securities company. Its goal was the monopolistic control of all of the railroads between the great lakes and the pacific ocean. Since then other powerful repressive kings have been dethroned from standard oil to eastman kodak to at and t. and t.'s. Dogwoods as good as gold. It was independent on our currency. It was gold. Now it's gone. That was one thousand nine hundred eighty four. This is now twenty years into the digital century. Big tech remains supreme. All but unchecked by law and regulation the so-called duopoly of google and facebook valued at just under two trillion dollars between them control thirty five percent of the six hundred billion dollar global advertising market. Not to mention evermore of our personal lives. This is harvard. Professor emeritus shoshana zubov in the documentary. The social dilemma. Facebook discover that they were able to affect real world behavior and emotions without ever triggering. The users awareness. They are completely clueless in the past. Ten days came a storm first week before last. Forty eight states and territories along with the federal trade commission filed suit against facebook that suit alleges that facebook bought up rivals with the explicit intention of stifling competition legal filings include an email from mark zuckerberg in two thousand eight in which he allegedly said quote. Better to buy than to compete. And then this past week. A second thunderclap. When texas's attorney general announced new antitrust charges against google the suit claims that google in a conspiracy with facebook abused its market power to chip away at consumer privacy protections and rig the advertising market. But if you think they trust busting senator. Sherman has come out from decades of hiding. That's not quite the case for decades. Antitrust doctrine has been fixated to the exclusion of everything else on harm to the consumer as measured by out of pocket costs social media mind control and the erosion of democracy do not fit into that calculation that sort of the traditional metric that we've used to bring antitrust cases and to really understand and measure consumer harm. It's been those price hikes that really hit consumers pockets Vossen author of the twenty two thousand nine paper. The antitrust case against facebook and illegal consultant in texas suit is on the leading edge of an evolved antitrust doctrine based on harms not necessarily inflicted at the cash register for example invasion of privacy on a grand scale. I just found it so interesting. You know why is it that the communications utility in the twenty first century that all consumers use essentially conduct something similar to surveillance. You sign up for facebook and facebook not only monitors your communications on facebook but even when i go to for example the new york times in the morning facebook is making a record of that and it is extracting from consumers the permission to basically track them across the internet. And it didn't seem obvious to that. Consumers would sign up for that proposition is something that they really liked. It's also a bit ironic. Because as i understand it. In the beginning. Facebook was favorably compared to. Let's say my space in early social network where your personal profile was at least one point. Public and facebook was theoretically an antidote to that. That's right if you go back in history you see how. Facebook entered the market with very firm. Privacy promises it got users to choose facebook over other competitors in the market and only after it gained market power and competitors exited the market. Was it finally able to extract this sort of surveillance term from consumers a large and you contract that facebook's growth goes up privacy protections straight down that's right and the fascinating thing about the new york attorney general's suit last week. Is that internal communications. Confirm that that's indeed. How facebook internally was considering strategic moves about decreasing users privacy. I don't remember another case that has been brought in a market where the price is zero and the government is deciding to defend the people based on things like a lack of innovation in the market. A lack of choice. Everybody uses facebook to stay in contact with their friends and family. And then just privacy harms.
