"But you were so close that all of it was was happening in front of you, You know, I mean, it's just to me. The geography of it doesn't necessarily mean that impacted you less or more. I mean, it's just that everybody felt that regardless of where you were, I feel closer to New York City and Manhattan when I'm staying in Hoboken, as opposed to staying in Manhattan, because when you're there in Hoboken looking across Ross, the river. It's a very short river there that short distance. You're taking in the towers, the sights the new year taking it in more so than when you're in it, In my opinion. Judy King. Yeah, Yeah, And all these people were like I said that was I think the statistic was 500,000. Half a million people were taken off of Manhattan Island that day by boat. And they did it in nine hours, and it was the largest maritime evacuation in history. Judy, can you hang on, stay with us for another segment. Option. Great, uh, talking to Judy Ferry. You know her story about all the boats coming to the rescue. Remind me of the occasion Navy down there in New Orleans after Katrina.

"I was just digging into the legal backing behind the president's assertion of presidential authority to require the vaccines. For about Oh, I don't know. 80 Million American workers. They say it relies on its first of its kind application of a 51 year old law. This law grants the federal government the power to protect employees from grave dangers at the workplace in the White House, believes That this emergency authority provided by the Congress under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 is a legitimate and legal way to put this into motion that they think it will hold up against lawsuits but that but that law was designed to protect workers from like asbestos and other industrial type. Things never been used to require a vaccine. Obviously. Well, the last couple of hours. We've talked a lot about what we remember, of course, from 20 years ago from September 11th 2000 and one in the attacks where we were. We talked about Steve Gregory special, which will air tomorrow, three o'clock and at eight o'clock here on K F I in the podcast that goes along with it. But another one of those personal stories about the experience of that day comes from a friend of ours. We both worked with different times up at a radio station in Sacramento. Judi Farrell was an editor and writer and a manager and just Judy Farah taught me everything taught me everything I know about news, writing and and being a reporter. I'm I I know. I'm sorry to burden you with that. Um, but I do remember your reporting, and I remember. I mean, I didn't hear it in the moment. But when we went through it the following year, I was at kfbk with You and it. It always stuck with me How much this experience stuck with you. I mean, it's stuck with all of us. But just being there being from New Jersey, going there for a girls' trip and actually Having plans to be at At the New York Stock Exchange that very day. So Judy, if you could just take us through what your experience was. Yeah, it was. It was just like one of those random things you know, working. And do you always hear about these random stories of people who are someplace where they didn't expect to be, But Yeah, I was on a came into New Jersey early from California because I wanted to visit friends and family and one of my best friends named Susan Lisovicz. She was a CNN reporter at the time, and she covered The New York Stock Exchange, and she arranged for me to have a tour of the stock exchange for closing bell closing bells around four o'clock four PM Um and I was supposed to take The bus into the belly of the World Trade Center. That was a big mess. Transit hub. Don't think people know about that. But you know, a lot of buses from all over went into that and I was supposed to get there around noon and Eastern time and around 8:50 A.m.. She was still home and she woke me up. With the television. I said, Judy, you're going to want to see this. And you know, Of course it was. It was just so shocking. Um, I was in X. Actually, I was in Hoboken, which is directly across from the World Trade Center. We went down to the waterfront and on the waterfront, they start setting up a trauma center. And what I covered was the boat lift of lower lower Manhattan. There was hundreds of thousands of people had to get off the island. But there was no way that shut down all the roads, bridges everything. So all these very boats came into the World Trade Center by by water and took them across to Hoboken, where I was and what I what? I witnessed this massive boat lift. That had to have been hundreds of thousands of people. Yeah. Yeah, It was a great documentary about it. Narrated by Tom Hanks. I urge everyone to please watch it. It's only 12 minutes long. It's probably the only inspiring documentary you'll see about 9 11. It's simply called Boat lift, and it's about the stories. Those stories about you know, the average person coming together. They put a call out to have every possible boat in the region, come across the water and pick up these people and get them off the island. And all these workers who were stranded there. You know people who did escape. The towers worked on Wall Street. They had no place to go. And when the boats took them, they care where they went. They just had to get off their island. You know the buildings with the towers crumbled down. They just wanted to get off of that. There. So I Saw them at the trauma center as they came in, and I'm like, gosh, there were just like covered in ash. There was remember this one young woman dressed in her blue Navy power suit and high heels, and she's just stumbling like she's drunk. She was just shell shocked. You know, she got she got home, but she couldn't even walk and I saw First responders, said doctors and fire captain just bury their face in their hands because they couldn't believe what was happening. They just couldn't believe that they were overwhelmed. And Shannon Gary. I mean, the biggest thing that really struck me was when the when the first broke out when it first happened was the sheer look of terror on everyone's faces. I mean, people. Everyone has their cell phone to their ear. But everyone was messed terror. We've never seen that look before in America. You guys might have been gone to a crime scene and your reporting days and seen, you know sorrow and somebody just got killed. But this is Americans everywhere. They didn't know what was happening. They didn't know what was going to happen next. Our shock from California. Was very strong, but it must have been exponentially crazy and more shocking and more surreal for the people that were actually there in Manhattan. I can't even imagine And growing up in northern New Jersey 10 miles out of New York City. And going to the city was like, you know, like for you driving from Burbank to Los Angeles is just a 10 mile drive in. I mean, And New York with its beautiful skyline. We saw the towers being built. I saw the terrorists being built growing up and then see them come down, and it was just like to, you know. That analogy but like to empty teeth because they dominated the skyline, and then that night, they weren't there. And it was so shocking and it's like when you where you live and what you saw what you witnessed. And yes, I've Was that the windows of the world you know the top that was the restaurant at the top and had been at the towers many times. It was just, you know, it was just so heartbreaking, and it's interesting. I mean, Having known your story and known that you were just across the river that whole time. Um, it's It's you know, as removed as we were out here on the West Coast, you are still removed by just the river..

"Extraordinary survival stories in the world. From the men who rescued 12 boys and their teacher trapped in the cave to the Mountaineers who get lost in the snow. Five live and local and I heard radio station hold the world tonight. There's a cloud like I'll be working that Chargers game in D. C and I'm gonna light you up. Okay?

You can find those games and you can play along as well. Just asking you who you think is going to win those four games. Not as easy as it seems. Not. As I mean. I think Jacob was about six games over 500 for the entire season last year. It's not that easy. But we love it if you would play coming up at one o'clock, a friend of ours, Jodi Farah, Judy Farah! Jody! Close friends. Judy. Sorry Moron worked with both of us at different times kfbk up in Sacramento and our radio passed and she was in New York on September 11th and her perspective on she was just there for a vacation, but sort of pressed into service and saw some of the events of that day specifically there in Lower Manhattan. We'll talk with Judy coming up. At the at the top of the one o'clock hour. Well, 12 30 we dive into D. C swamp is horrible. Government doesn't work. Come on, man. We're gonna make this like a reality TV show Corn Pop was a bad dude. Always a pleasure to be anywhere from Washington D c. Hey, Joe. Hey, a town all too clearly built on a swamp. In so many ways still a swamp. That's a bunch of malarkey. Somebody said, Drain the swamp. I said, Oh, that's so keep yapping, man Watch. You know the thing Donald Trump is already claiming that the recall here in California is rigged. He opened his presidency by falsely claiming massive voter fraud in California. Now he's back on the subject. He told Newsmax this week that the election to recall Newsom is probably rigged. Mhm. Yeah. Okay. Uh, I don't even know where to go with this. How do you say so? If it's Tuesday, it turns out that the current polls are correct, and they show that Gavin Newsom is not recalled. Then this is the thing that now is everything. Everything is now fixed. Yes, If it doesn't come out the way you want it to, it's rigged. It's wrong. It's fraudulent. Well, even Tommy Lauren said the same thing that the only mouth only fraud could give Gavin Newsom a win. Now it's very popular to claim election fraud. We saw how popular it was and how people clung onto that after the president said that the presidential election was rigged. Well, remember one of the things that we saw a couple of weeks ago as this post out of torrents where police had pulled over a guy he had drugs and guns and hundreds of mail in ballots about you know, in the back of the car. If somebody would have rob a mailbox today, they would probably find filled out ballots, wouldn't they? I mean, it's a matter of timing. It's not that this this moron drug, you know, knocked out, kid guy. Whatever. He wasn't trying to steal an election. He probably had no idea what the what? Why There were so many things in the mail that looked exactly the look alike. It's frustrating to see this. I'm not saying it couldn't happen. Of course it could. But you imagine the amount of Just the sheer number of people that it would take to hide this type of a thing and to keep it out of the press. People aren't good at keeping secrets. Not today. Not in this day and age. They're not good at keeping secrets. Republican leaders blasting President Biden's new Corona vaccine mandates for businesses and federal workers could affect over 100 million people. They say that they're unconstitutional that they are infringing on personal liberties. And they will sue. It looks like Republican governors from Texas, Missouri, Georgia have threatened to fight back. Texas governor Greg Abbott, calling the mandates an assault on private businesses. And Joe Biden said, have at it. Come at me with your lawsuit. Hey, one of the things if you were looking to kill some time this weekend is you read a Supreme Court decision. Jacobson vs Massachusetts. Back in 19 Oh, five. It deals specifically with vaccine requirements. Henning Jacobson was a 50 year old minister. And he had suffered a bad reaction to a vaccine as an infant and had an angry rash as a result of it, because back in 19 Oh, five. All rashes were angry. Um, he became an American citizen. He was serving as a pastor of a church in Massachusetts. So the Cambridge Board of Health Care in Massachusetts decided that all adults had to be vaccinated for smallpox. He said. Absolutely not. That would be unconstitutional. And it was he was challenging the $5 find that would come as a result of him not getting vaccinated, and it made its way all the way to the Supreme Court. But they ruled 72. That one man's liberty cannot deprive his neighbors of their own liberty in this case by allowing the spread of disease, so this these types of cases have been Thought before all the way to the level of the Supreme Court. I'm not sure if the specifics are the same because at that time the smallpox vaccine had been around for some time now. Granted, science was not then what it is now. But that had been used multiple times, and they knew that the smallpox vaccine was effective. The thing now is there is an argument that this these covid vaccines are so new. We don't know what the long term effects could be so that that could play into legal challenge to whatever the president was talking about yesterday, and it could play into a decision from the Supreme Court if it ever made it that far. It looks like they are going to be putting up fence around the capital again. We'll talk about why When we come back. I also have a story about zebras in D. C. I love that idea. Actual zebras. In D. C. It's wonderful channel will continue a swamp Watch Amy King.

I'm growing weary of the stuffy nose headache and sneezing routine after talking with UC Davis allergist, Dr Rosemary Hallett, maybe you are too this year, maybe a more severe year, we had lots of rain, and that can let the grasses and trees go a little bit earlier, and I have had a lot of patients having lots of symptoms. This time of year. Dr Hallier recommends allergy sufferers shower and change clothes after being outside noting. There are also a lot of good over the counter medicines that can help. The nasal steroids tend to work the best, and there's some good eyedrops that are available as well. With these only treat the symptoms treating the allergy itself involves a three to five year process. Requires a lot of time in the allergist office. You come in for a shot of what you're learning to once or twice a week that gets built up over about four to six months, and then it continues monthly for longtime. Allergy sufferers like former KF became news editor Judy Farah. The time and effort have been worth it. I was reluctant at first it seemed like a big drastic step to take.

It's really not much of an ordeal in well, she's still takes over the counter medicines as a precaution on windy days. Faira highly recommends the long term treatments for severe allergy sufferers.

I'm starting to think that process might not be all bad doctors determine what you're allergic to do these blood tests. We'll get it. I've had an allergy blood panel.

And if you get the bump, and it raises and becomes itchy that shows that you're allergic to that. So it's really quite fascinating that they could point down to the very thing.
