"I am Justin Kaufman with you till eleven o'clock tonight Gus noble joining me now he is the present Chicago scouts the Caledonian senior living facility north riverside he earlier this week sent a letter along with some other health care for so long term health care facilities to the governor asking for more tests and protective gear for his workers and he joins me now because thanks for being appreciate it how are you I'm good I'm good thanks for being here all right so let's get right into this first you know let's talk about the letter what was in the letter that you sent to the governor why'd you send it I watch it governor's press conference on Saturday like a lifetime ago but it was just a few days ago and I could feel almost palpable frustration coming from the governor hi I'm fully supportive of what the governor is trying to do and shared his frustration and maximus rock thank you what I can do I felt helpless and then I realized I can use my voice today president of the oldest charity in Eleanor E. we started in eighteen forty five and then I thought wait a minute hi Amanda close both in physical proximity and in that friendship in terms of friendship to the C. E. O.'s called Plymouth place cantata about life and that concludes our home in Burr ridge I told collectively these four communities represent four hundred years worth of service to Illinois the employee seven hundred and fifty people we serve twelve hundred residents and I wanted to see if you can have stated the governor we only heartily support what you're doing I'm we want to join with you to make sure that those who are at the frontline of caring for our parents and grandparents the people who looked after us and loved us and protected us we now have a duty to love and protect and look after them and the best way to protect the health and safety of the people who live in long term care is to protect the health and safety of the people who work in long term care so I wanted to write a letter on behalf of the rest our families and our staff who are doing incredible work through this crisis so we we sent a letter and I have seen and the B. M. the frustration of the governor and it will be shared across the community B. we speak for the people who live in March in our communities I know it shared more broadly across the senior living field in Illinois Gus let me ask about that because we've heard so much and and we saw the startling grim stats that many of the the deaths from covert nineteen have come from long term healthcare facilities especially the kind of waited to what happened in Seattle Washington and some other places around the country when you think about that you see that you run senior care facilities that has to be top of mind so what can be done to protect not only the residents but people work the the seven fifty people that work advanced facility yeah here's one thing I'll tell you to stay where we are the four communities remain absolutely committed to best practices everything we're doing in our operations and our I reach in our engagement with the world outside of our doors and our campuses were also fully committed to being informed by the very latest guidance and advice from health experts especially when I department of public health they were very quick and proactive in helping the communities across the stage understand what needed to be done to fully protect the health and safety of of the seniors who lives within those communities I'm not involved a degree of loctek there will be a lot during started last week and what I mean by locating these there is only one door that's open in our community and I think it's open it's where people go in the net pay remains permanently locked with a video surveillance camera so that our front desk can see who's coming only people you're the only people who come into the building our head staff who are coming to their shifts and we can I'll scale back the only does essential staff to delivering the care and the quality of life and to to the residence essential visitors also include medical directors and qualified F. and medical professionals but it includes families only of residents who are on hospice and every single one of those people have to be screened there there has to buy her potential exposure to corporate banking their their their recent travel have meeting with people who've traveled out of state and exhibited any of the symptoms conversely associate to personal corona virus and they are also having their temperature taken immediately upon entry into the building because I want to ask you and and and and all those restrictions but the it does this surprise you that's what the good citizens of it because I can I get the idea but I also want to hear all of these restrictions and everything is put in place doesn't surprise you when you see cases whether it be in Willowbrook or in Seattle where one cases is it is positive and then it it flows so fast through nursing home facilities there senior care facilities as someone who's who's lived his life in it is it surprising to you or you like yeah I know exactly how it happens one to ten week we all know how contagious and how fast it can spread and this is this is the kind of it totally we call perch unity as Irish that will spread to anybody it comes in contact with so the the the the ways in which we're trying to protect the people who live and work in your care to to to hear the director general of the World Health Organization said my advice to countries each test test test to to to give P. P. E. personal protective equipment like masks and gloves and gangs transaminase and to to make it more available do you think he actively trees in long term care and health care are jointly we we have an infantry but we're trying to proactively prepare for D. A. do you serve said that that Dimitry so we're reaching out to any and all suppliers and I also have a message to people who are working we all know that there are people hoarding facemask another type of hand sanitizers ask yourself if you have that in trees that you're holding if you need it more than the seniors seniors are the most vulnerable sections of Illinois and citizens of our country if you have it and you would like to donate it to a nursing home or to deceive the people who need it most do it I appeal to those people who are hoarding and increase costs noble is the present Chicago scouts in the Caledonian senior facility in north riverside and he and four other facility other facilities I sent a letter to governor Pritzker saying that they want to make sure they had tests in protective gear for the healthcare workers and of course we're talking about this because of the outbreak in the nursing home facility and Willowbrook along terror long term care facility in Wilbur all right so my question to you has to do with families because many families of course are are trying to provide comfort for their loved ones that are in health care facilities and in nursing homes and they can't visit and we saw a striking photo of a man in Minnesota who had who had gone up to the window and he was talking to his dad through the window it has to be heartbreaking how do you deal with families who recognize it's serious and they want to protect their loved ones and at the same time they want to be there for their loved ones that's a great question we we recommend as the four communities Abell who signed the letter and we're having a daily calls made to share best practices and be recognized very early on that yes we must protect critical well Mister Henson the call help hold her hand residents but we must also be mindful of their mental health and their emotional health so the ways in which we're helping them to still feel connected to to to their lives and their loved ones using and technologies like facetime and video conferencing we set up a web data secure web portals for sharing the photographs and video messages there is a local and dance group to say someone had their highland dancers who perform arson the difficulty Homer Caledonia senior living sales for con come onto our campus anymore but they they've agreed to that dancer to resident they will begin a correspondence of letters and sending best wishes and helping them know what's going on in the world so you we also have and we doubled our efforts to bring M. activities art or rather to have activities that don't involve bringing in that tight entertainers hi I'm Scottish as you might hear by my actions yesterday the last continent entertain the residents as disempowered sixty parties we had through the building you know we we have Donald generation as ash social distancing so we're having a resident said sixty apart which meant we couldn't have a big parking one when we have had four parties across the campus and I traveled and and and make sure that everybody had pre set across the commission had some sort of bridge so we're we're trying to do all we can to keep spirits up and and you know what here's here's here's one thing that I've said to our community we're we're a hundred and seventy five years old this year we were started in eighteen forty five sold through two world wars to through the great Chicago fire through the Great Depression we prevailed as an organization and community and we've done that by staying true to our roots and our values and one hundred and seventy five years what that's meant is that we have wrote the most important things in life and delivered them to the people we serve and those are home Emily and love and that's exactly what we're going to do through this crisis thank god no that sent the I'm sorry to cut you off and that's that's great that's a a great sentiment president of Chicago Scott's in Caledonia senior living in north riverside sent a letter to the governor this week along with three other health care facilities nursing homes in the western suburbs who wanted to make sure that people paying attention to nursing homes and tests and protective wear for the health care workers thanks so much for joining us for shipment you guys accessing and we've I've gone out and we're we interviewed Gus because he does the Scots festival the great festival which is right there in Inverness what town is that it's right there if I forgot words exactly I task it right right and there was a lot of fun we went out there and they were part of it and Gus read some poetry and we ate some hagas there's a lot of fun but you know is obviously they run the Caledonia living center there senior living center and of course this is a serious time for them as they of course prepare their residents and their health care workers and the families of those residents for covert nineteen three one two nine.

a lot of great stories about African Americans who have little hidden history is some stuff that's a I would say under reported necessarily but stories that the whole book is really about the stories that that need to have been told as much what case of the but the under reporting first first we talked about was Jesse being done and then nine nineteen eighty I was teaching it but Betsy Ross school is sixty the mall bash and African American neighborhood and he had lived a few blocks from there kids know who well lobbies I'll be the first to save Jessie Bangor yeah I'm gonna live there is a book about it just came out last year so you can see more attention but anyway the kids didn't know who he was at that time forty years ago I need this has got more attention since then and his house does have a Chicago Tribune market now but anyway to get to the man himself he was born in Detroit eighteen sixty five any scalpel around a lot of odd jobs he's barber for awhile it's it's obvious occupation in eighteen ninety three he came to Chicago for the world's fair like Walt Disney's filing a bunch of other people is a lot of jobs around with the world's fair well around that time and then into the early twentieth century this was the time the Great Migration yeah a lot of African Americans were getting fed up with the conditions down south and they had opportunities in the northern northern cities within one suffers much prejudice a lot of African Americans we're moving up north for Mississippi from Alabama places like yeah now that Chicago had already set up for the small black population to percent five percent something like that nearly twentieth century and the area where the African Americans live work and just near south side from about twenty second street tremec wrote down around thirty fifth thirty ninth on either side of State Street they called the black belt area but with all these people coming in they need some place to live and soul of the area where the new residence where we started to expand out side wasted in various directions right and what them this this path allowed the white people because it's a time of prejudice and this is also a time when your neighborhood was really ethnically driven yeah you had germinate Irish neighborhood I read a great book about this and it was all about the bill to sort of near south side neighborhoods and as African Americans who were really just shoved into one area yeah even went a block over these roving gangs and and other things or protecting those neighborhoods did not like yes in nineteen nineteen race right right this is a well run the same merits get going back a little what what Jesse bigoted he got on the ground floor of this type of thing he would buy a property at rock bottom price woman these panicky whites the when they get out and then he'd fix it up and he put his own sweat equity and they do both working self we could save money and if it was a big place you might subdivided and then he would either rent it out or you would sell it to a to another and this is a big deal because of the buildings that were being rented traffic Americans of time were terrible they were awful Michael and I try to shove as many people in like we said yeah I know he was he was providing better living conditions for them so what naturally he he became prosperous as time went by and he was making so much money in nineteen oh eight he became the first African American in Chicago to to open privately owned bank it was called the bank the bank it was as thirty six in St was as a service to call goals first black owned bank in it was very successful with this he started operating is real estate business to the bank as a matter of fact if you look through old copies of the brought acts which was a black newspaper then order Chicago defender I've got one of the ads in the book I was told all the things the Jesse being as bank would do for you all of real estate transactions and that even manage your property for you if you were a non resident no wonder they you know they charge you a fee and that you don't have to worry about anything that was a lot of things that the at the White banks were doing for her young people at the top as Jesse decided nineteen ten he decided to go into politics and he ran for a seat on the cook County Board of commissioners and the four years before a Ferdinand Barnett ida wells Burnett's husband and run for judging he'd been defeated well Jesse runs in nineteen ten and runs his Republican that was the party of choice for African Americans in those days and he lost and that was the only time you tried for elective office but you know he was doing okay for making a lot of money and so on and so nineteen seventeen he decides to move into a new house and it was at fifty nine twenty two this can drive today was then was called South Park Avenue well two white neighborhood is the first African American in the neighborhood and he starts getting death threats people start throwing bombs at the place the the local cops who kinda slow about this state you know no they they don't care so find

"Phone number it's Justin Kaufman and we had to till eleven o'clock tonight here in seven twenty WGN coming up next at eleven we start the program talk about Kobe Bryant the whole world target Michael we ran I thought last night the coverage was really excellent on ESPN and like to consider them a competitor the competitor all sports I'm I just I really like Scott van pelt maybe these balls like mankind like that I think it's great I think it's such a great mix where he can do that highlights and they go round the clock was any also has something to say at the end and he was really thoughtful about Kobe Bryant like more than I cared to be at the pool at the moment and I just thought it was really good I have to say that there's been some great stuff on social media tonight we talked about just the emotion around when a celebrity dies we didn't seven o'clock hour just the idea that you are shedding tears for this man did that we did they've never met I watched on TV in the cell celebrity and he made unbelievable basketball move soon one championships doing it the motion is is pretty intense I mean obviously with his family's thirteen year old daughter and and as someone pointed out tears for the living the people who are mourning today of all the family members that were on that helicopter but the question we asked was just you know when when in your lifetime have you cried over celebrity death what people text in they said yeah of course Elvis Presley John Lennon John Lennon was a huge one John Kennedy of course president Kennedy some heath ledger's Walter Payton that's mine and I thought about it more with Walter Payton stuff that I just felt there is such a place and time you know the moments you fall in love with a celebrity or someone who's on the on the field is when they they mean something to you at a certain age and being in Chicago and watching Walter Payton play and watching him when even when the bears didn't but just watching him when and having such a charming personality in doing so and recognizing that this is it regardless of what I knew about his off the court off the field anything I don't know and I still don't it didn't matter and you just you just thought Walter Payton was was a hit that through an act that's why sports figures are always hear us right Michael Jordan the same way I think that I would probably shed tears for any of the Chicago sports heroes of my use whether that's legit or not I don't know I you know I don't I don't know it's it's just my connection to the sports people we asked you in there so many tax and I really appreciate when he attacks them has it six seven eight says sweetness no doubt six three oh says I cried when Michael Jordan's father was killed that's a good one because that was again that plays to crying for the living Roger Ebert eight one five that's a good one I was such a sad one Robin Williams to seven seven three we got a lot of Robin Williams before I was very sad and cried when Walter Payton died and when Paul Walker died from fast in which various I met both of those guys are really friendly people does Ross yeah so anyway can come in but we were coming that was kind of where we landed on the condo another comma what I've switching gears entirely one story that's been in the news today that I find to be to have insight and to to be able to give you value that's what you're looking for is WGN listeners to be to find value this story that has been in the paper about an ATM machine that was lifted was stolen from a near west side gas station it's my gas station how about that you realize it's all actually looked at the address so if anybody has any questions about the veracity or the the safety of that gas station I can answer I will tell you that gas station which is at Jackson on the near west side is not it's not one of your new once it's not one of your fancy once this fancier ones around the corner it go the one by two ninety and the national there's no walk up you can't walk up to me I can get a sprite yeah what would you be getting a gas station you know you live in the suburbs that's your go to at a seven eleven right that's my favorite thing about suburban gas stations it's like you can spend hours in there so clean might even have a hot dog rotating some nachos poor that she's right and just like you know that they don't have that downtown downtown is a bullet proof booth that's and says the word cashier above it but when they made the gas station the owners for gostei so just says Kasher and then they tried to paint the I. in but they made it really skinny as one of things we just like just like you would do like I can fix it I can fix it don't start over it's too much money start of I can fix it Mr really skinny I so now it's Kasher with hello with a line in the middle so it's Kelly cast cast her and yet the guy never comes out of that thing like almost by you can tell he's like I'm protecting myself the rule book the employee handbook says I don't get out of this thing you got a problem that's your problem but this is this is the cockpit and I am leaving it so I can only imagine because I know where that ATM once it's in the actual they have a this one is on to the car wash attached the car washes is is pretty low rent things like five Bucks and you just kind of go through it my guess is it's the most and it's almost like they started to build a car wash and like you know what this is fine we don't need to track we don't need anything just that we we bought the we have the frill things that wash the car we don't need a dryer just this get five box is fine but the ATM is in that part so I could totally see guys going in there and just being brazen gone taken this ATM machine and the guy was in the bruising I get out go ahead check but yeah that is my gas station I was so excited I felt like it was like a a moment for me I could add value it's a strange the little corner because there's a I think there's an a rental car place it's next to it and it's not that safe so it's kind of funny like the idea that you see these headlines we think that it was our man crime is just over running it's let me just say it's not that surprising to me that someone or try to lift an ATM from there that's the place then I'll roll up I get so annoyed by this I think I've talked about this on the show a roll of peace would you your your whole experience is two minutes there you know the first thing you do this the kind of place the first thing you do is you grab the credit card reader and shake it to make sure it's not a fake one that's the kind of gas station we're talking about like okay I think it works you hide your pain as you kind of put it in on the machine and they stand then you wait for a guy to walk up to you and say Hey I don't bother you like this but I was wondering if you had like a dollar or like five Bucks I'm I gotta get to Indiana and I I just I got a gas and I just lost my card it's just you know nice dress kinda like yeah man yeah I got all I got is to fifty cents and business thanks man thank you sorry and mean to bother and then the next week you go do the same thing the guy walks there was Hey man I just and I I'm like Hey buddy I don't wanna be Jr I like to just guy like a scam Jerry did I remember you scant Hey some number one rule scamming remember who you skipped you can't just go scamming the same guy twice the ruins the whole scam truly does strode back the way I approach him I wasn't angry wasn't hostile about as a Cape quick word of advice and scam don't do it twice now I know see because I would have known before so I'm not gonna tell anybody says there's also too because he went to the other car but then he had like kind of a a vibe that was like if you say anything well I try to stand this guy Hey my business if he buys your side but your story last week he tried again go for what what mother I'm not police you can get fifty cents on him too good for you yeah very weird moment because he accepted that he accepted me going all right yeah fair that's fair that's for you right bad scam bad camera started working again when a work out hi Leslie this I can take a break I went faster I went all the way through to the talk about the ATM let's talk Grammys one talk fashion I read this piece today about how it was an underwhelming here for fashion at the Grammy's weren't problem is I don't know what that means maybe you do three one two ninety one seventy two hundred who right back his favorite favorite to pose Ron white WGN America.

coming taken as a one man show Lincoln hall on Sunday night telling stories about his life in I was gonna say Canada Hollywood unless news in Hollywood he was a writer Nessun Ellie talked about an interview about how it had it was like one of the biggest failures in his life of being a writer and SNL because of he didn't realize that the kids and all so special and that he went there and he's like on the best thing he went there and he realized quickly that he left to get the Sunday really tough game and then we both have friends who had had different kind of rides doing that that's that's a that's a tough way to make a living I think that's the jacket owski rush house here's well here's the situation is the podcast and you can hear it every week they put it on a Monday you can find it wherever you find a podcast taking hypothetical questions and a and tearing them apart to find the answers that we all are looking for we thank everybody text then for the which which flare what would beverages when from the band would you drink nice response yeah great response great out so let's let's move on to do some new hypothetical that you guys don't want to think before you do it one of the things I love about the park as if you guys don't share your hypotheticals with each other before and that's the fun of it that your your first time you're hearing correct correct and rush wrote one for tonight that I have that obviously you nor I have have heard but yeah we don't want it like talk about it and then try and read captured that discussion and seems like spontaneity and that and the you know the initial response it also makes it so that you know a young forging unfortunate rest sometimes we don't come up with great answers Yang as you did some of them you need to think about for a while we don't have that luxury at that time we we keep doing this I do this one where there's a sick sick if like eccentric billionaire any he captures you and he puts on a in this room and it's the first one that was every NBA mascot is in there but a real life version of it and you have fifteen seconds to pick too and your team and pick three you're going to go up against in a fight to the death so you know you only have fifteen seconds to think about it in the first with the right person in and out and neither TJ nor I thought of the Titans which would clearly Whaley when they I is going to dominate the DJ was it was very good he's like you will will I'll take a jet I don't know how to but I birds I thought I had it I would do jet was on my teams like I don't care who's on the other team I I think I put a card on a C. hawkers of many other things I have a jet now you know and I've been in there I think a giant at least know you at the I and I as yet and something else like I win the tie I can take that jet down and then in the NBA we forgot that one is the actual son or multiple also stars right yeah that's probably going to win although I and we added the good debate about whether ultimately the jazz beats the heat the jazz I think jazz trumps because if you go to like New Orleans those guys are sweat and doing it right and their plans yeah that's when they're bad yeah now so yeah we never in it so it is fun when you have less time because you make mistakes in the behind all right so let's hear ridge road Russian are in new one right okay I do the new wing this is acceptance of ones are kind of more yes or no and little shorter so that that's what this one so that X. same eccentric billionaire TJ hates he comes to you and he says Hey I got a great deal for you any he's willing to give you this new like kind of fit bit slash apple watch whatever it is but it's a it's a step cannot going to be a K. puts on what's on your left wrist right it's gonna be a catch I know this guy and AC accounts every step that you take just like all these you know fit bit type things and he says you here's the here's what I'm offering you you can take it or leave it on day one do you wear this you can walk a thousand steps day to you gotta go two thousand steps you got to keep going up one thousand steps every day for a month so that one day they thirty you walk thirty thousand steps a day twenty nine twenty nine thousand steps and in all the way down if you complete it he give you fifty thousand dollars on the spot if you fail in any day the thing gets super hot it just burns your left hand right off so just melt your left hand and then see the medical rise I knew this guy I this guy he's exit it's not the right agitators eccentric past eccentric so here what do you do it no I don't do it I don't know I don't agree and but I could I could blow a hamstring on day sixteen and then I just have two weeks to know that my arms gonna but my hands gonna burn although it burned off at the minute you mess that right that's right yeah you would have to sit and wait yeah that injury yeah well okay injury is a good point that's that you just think about entry but I'm not sure because I don't do the Fitbit and stuff stuff how many steps in a day one takes so gonna be the question Pete is orange theory guy okay do you mean do do you pay attention to how many steps you take in a day I pay attention now though closing my rings yeah that is good but I'm looking at my steps right now in today for example I worked out for an hour and then just can't work and

"Radio on Justin Kaufman instead you enter Huff who is your guys are twenty by to Chicago which is going to be on stage and she was coming up this Sunday the take twenty performers in Chicago each getting two minutes a piece to take on a theme this year or this this show of the theme is who do you think you are quarterly show here in Chicago I got twenty people together and and the goal I would assume is to be diverse and and comedy and seriousness summer the showdown before there's a lot of funny stuff but then there's some serious stuff so that when you're putting together twenty performers how much you have to look at it think about how they kind of come together yeah you definitely do have to think about that we try to make sure that the Cheryl shows very diverse it's usually fifty fifty male and female we try to get as as close to parity with with the diversity of our area in every every sense really and the the the the the contributors the speakers are of all sorts of different backgrounds we've got a couple of professors we've got comedians we have filmmakers we have writers and so we try to make sure there's a bit of a bit of a Max that I think the show it wouldn't be quite as interesting if it was all writers round for one thing it just be twenty people getting up and speaking for two minutes so you know we are papers in her hand shaking while I get the beer in hand how many shows in Chicago by scene of the live lit scene right when that yeah and yeah so we you know we were looking for a diversity of of of cancer types as well it really is anything goes if you can do it on a stage at she was is welcome do you try to find people stage experience because I remember the last time yes some that that we're doing like slide shows are trying to do different things but it seems like there's a lot of nerves in the remote as good a good yeah in a good it in a in a positive way currently I try to make sure that there's a mix we we always have a couple of veterans of the show because it's nice to have somebody who knows what's going on but we do we don't we don't disqualify somebody just because they've never been on stage before if they're interesting and have a cool perspective on the question and are willing to do it that's enough yeah so you know so for instance this time I don't think we have anybody who's never been on stage before actually that's not true I think Amy Carlton whose was a capers what contributor one of the founding because a great writer yeah in a reddit writer she she now interviews people for the American library association's magazines recently talked a Dolly Parton's awesome yeah yeah yeah she's onstage she's gonna be on stage she's normally our time keeper but she liked this question enough that she lost we have such great people lily B. who has been a guest with us she right across her neighborhood in in our neighborhoods matter series Shannon Downey's great who is actually crafter I didn't think of her as as necessarily somebody gets up on stage but yeah yeah yeah and she is she's just been in the news quite a bit for the readers quilts project she came across the a and unfinished quilt at a I believe an estate sale where it it turned out that the person who had started it was ninety nine when she died and I just picked it back up from the seventies to start putting it together and so she got crafters from all over the world to finish embroidery handles and and putting it together that's out on tour Jenny spinner of course not Washington breakdowns work and also of my one of my buddies Steve bell hood who yeah is one the best filmmakers in Chicago right is not get enough credit for the work that he's done and I have had the good fortune of he's been on this program he's he's done the worse than other things with us which been fun but he his work is just vaults and now he's yeah he is never town anymore because he's constantly doing national Rachel's for people because he just took off as a filmmaker so Chicago's loss but I'm glad he's back to do this yeah I agreed yeah it's it's funny he's done the show a couple of times in the past and despite being a filmmaker he has always done a spoken word piece please super funny and super funny he is that's awesome how fun all right twenty by to Chicago which will be on stage at shoe was on Sunday I'll be there with my plus one Walter Jacobson I'm looking forward to that well it's all subjective since coming with me he's my celebrity that I'm going to interview on stage I think that's fantastic I love it it's it's great for him to come out so if you want to come see Walter Jacobson myself do a interview and the twenty by to show it's on Sunday night doors open at six thirty is that the idea doors at six thirty the show starts at seven right on the dot and if they say Justin plus one they're good to go there yes good yeah there you go there you go do you miss doing a brisk walk with you know I try to tell listeners some may not remember but we had you want as an exit interview for that grape response was a great Chicago news organization that was in Chicago that you shattered a couple years back and he missed it I do it pitched it shuddered actually three years ago on January first well I was last year of of the last day in twenty sixteen I do miss it I especially miss the calendar section we're talking off air about that I have not yet found a calendar that incorporates both music and all the cultural events political event now that that really hits hits everything because there have been parts of of what you guys did a capers blocked and been picked up and and I've seen it mostly in email newsletters who heather Sharon comes on she does a daily line Charlie Myerson does the the great PC does yeah so there there seems to be a lot of of people who are doing what at the core capers London doing before its time but you're right you're not seeing someone step in and organize Chicago's cultural events in the way that you guys do yeah we also were of that sort of a testing ground or at a place where new reporters and and just writers could get experience and find find their place in journalism and and continue to move up and and I I don't think there's really a place like that yet I think city bureau has some programs that that citizen reporters can getting off then I ball club Chicago I think has a little bit of that they definitely do cover the city in the way that we hope to to but yeah it's it's it it was re it was unique and it is a bit of shame that it it isn't there isn't something new like it Robert teeter committees doubt that there's gonna be another local town and town hall journalism town hall that will really was a couple years yeah I know it's a big thing and it at time remember there was so much talk about capers block in Chicago Weston and other you know sort of digital sites leading the way into the future of journalism and you've you've you bet your I. ten years later whatever it's been since that that summit that brought together a traditional news and digital news and those sites are all gone and it interesting moment here in twenty twenty to look back and also look forward to say that our world these prophecies that's digital journalism is gonna be the future but it didn't necessarily play out that way isn't playing out that way the the seems like newspaper companies The New York Times washing post they've gone to a digital model but the most the the digital sites that that we came to love disappeared yeah although I don't think it's of a complete come complete vacuum there are new sites I mean block club for instance I I'd be remiss if I didn't mention third coast review which was started by a group of cavers block alone and there there are other things that have come up in there in its place but I I think what we're seeing right now is just a continuation of that experiment I mean it's ten years say in in the grand scheme of things in the grand scheme of news is really short you know it in the first ten years of or even the first twenty years of of television for instance when you saw nothing but live shows law and no ads to use something by the twenty years later something very similar to what we see now so I think we're still in that sort of right that period where we're figuring out what it all looks like here for you to think back to those days and and where you were heralded as as an innovator someone who was pushing of medium forward you see now with new sites and and that many are are almost for going the idea of setting up web sites known to either play off of social media sites yeah war in when I mention the email newsletter where I don't even need to really have a Chicago public square site there is one the goal is that it's delivered to write your inbox do you see that being the future I mean is from someone who's been in the business that you're gonna see more news sites especially start ups and independent entrepreneurs take different routes to deliver and distribute AS at that than just having a website yeah I think it's it's definitely an option you don't necessarily need a website I mean you could just do an app you could definitely do email I subscribe to quite a few emails I get public square I get block clubs emails from my neighborhood but I also still go to those websites I think it it needs to be a combination really what I think the lesson of the last ten years has been as you need to be everywhere your audience might be able to find him whether that's Twitter and Facebook or a website or app just be there for and you know when you look at the ecosystem and you mentioned some of the sites like block club and and promotes review and others like that but you see what's happened at the Tribune and and and you know there's concern about what the future is as they are getting you know bought and sold it there at the corporate level or you look at the sun times which it seems like every three months the the bell rings for whether or not that then we're gonna say she's going to continue yeah are are you are you positive as someone who's been in the media are you positive about where a news is going on are you feeling the dire warnings that that people are talking I'm definitely feeling the dire warnings it's it it does feel like we're at a another point where we're going to shed a a big where a whole lot of the the old media you know and and it's really it's it's unfortunate because it was so much so many self inflicted wounds you know the the huge debt to that the the cell corporation the cell group brought on on on the Tribune which maybe wasn't doing great before that but it certainly didn't help you know taking all all all that debt right at the dot com bust star I guess my answer to sign on yeah exactly you know its.

"Most trusted meteorologist Tom skilling for TV news at ten watch Chicago's very own WGN seven twenty WGN Justin Kaufman with you tonight it is the ultimate Chicago movie cage match were in sweet sixteen tonight's match up the the the one of the best she is super hero movies of all time the dark knight first one of the best Chicago movies of all time about last night the rom com that takes place all over rush street and the north side of Chicago in studio Alison Cuddy Reppan for about last night mark bays are for the dark knight three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred if you like to tell us which film you would like to see move on to the elite eight odds take on either the winner of the fugitive or Christmas vacation which is coming up next week all right so let's thirty mark let's do the dark night so give us the I'm people know this movie very well but the plot and just just give us the overall give us the pitch why do you think this movie should move on sure I mean the dark knight is about a movie but it's it's heath ledger's movie in a in a lot of ways it's got an amazing cast got Morgan Freeman got Michael Caine obviously Christian bale plays Batman Maggie Gyllenhaal plays the love interest it's got an air card at is Harvey dent's heath ledger everybody will always remember this film right for him his portrayal of the joker which is one of the your Houston creepiest trails in in movie history I would say and and you know the plot is is it's a Batman movie and I think one of the things that connects the Gotham to Chicago is that Gotham like Chicago is a town beset with corruption and beset with mobsters and monsters are raking in the money and there's a somebody that I think we all love to have in Chicago a vigilante vigilante who can end up for us right and the movie takes place because the joker comes in and he changes the game and the joker unlike typical criminals doesn't care about money he just wants to see it all burn and that's the great tension between the joker in Batman always is that they each need each other right please get the great line at the end where he says I I can't kill you and you won't kill me yeah he says he just because you're just too much fun I will kill you because you're just too much fun for the joker and and you know in some ways I think Bruce Wayne feels the same way but I think he also has obviously a moral compass that the joker doesn't have the ticket to Chicago I mean this movie is full of Chicago scenes there's so much if you go downtown and and you see you can't what if you're walking downtown you remember the dark night you can't see a building or can't see a part of the river and can't think about wow they turn this in to the dark knight daily scenes they did on the south freeware they flip the the rig at the pointed out a poor some point that summer lower Wacker drive was closed from seven o'clock to seven A. M. or something like that all summer long like they just close that night either famous family story where my wife went into labor with my son and my route to northwestern was lower Wacker read that was the idea and that night luckily was like one in the morning was a traffic and we start to go and it was closed off because they were shooting Batman they're shooting dark nights of families before new baby I got to say they also if you want to say does this film no Chicago they film Batman on his back motor pad things in the pathway they did yeah the may I mean that okay so these guys came in and they got to know Chicago and I think they made it a Chicago film right it's a great film that doesn't make a Chicago film I think it's a great Chicago film yeah okay so what's what's your take away scene in the in the dark knight like there's so many great scenes in that film but what makes it I mean because I was watching the scene that the joker's talking Harvey dent in the hospital before it blows it up that's the scene where which is the racks candy factory yeah right right and he'd seats talks about the chaos seems like I'm just an agent of chaos the does the whole thing but there's so many of those scenes where heath ledger just steal the show yeah but I'm gonna go back to what I said I'm going to go back to not one particular scene but I'm gonna go back to Christian bale whether as Batman or as himself Bruce Wayne driving around and I think there's so much what makes the movie so great is that the joker is always one step ahead of us but so is Batman and so is Christopher Nolan's director we never know what's gonna happen it's just a one constant propulsion and part of that is seen through him driving around a lot riding on lower Wacker driving down Lake Street and just do it next time don't go as fast as he did FIFA like it like I got the kids in the car seat yeah they're a lot trust me I go home I lower Wacker a lot and they're a lot of cars there like let's see how fast I can write I don't to be like Christian bale you're not on film before we move on lets go to Sherman who's online Sherman what do you like you like dark night or do you like about last night well if we're talking just plain movie is I have to go with dark night but if you're talking about Chicago we are what and I would have to go with about last night because they were not only was filmed in Chicago but it's also set in Chicago is the thank you that is the that is the rub that's the Achilles heel of the dark but I would argue that it's not set here I'd argue that it is and I'd argue that got them in Chicago people have tried to say the Gotham is New York or even there's a thing in comics where it's part of New Jersey but I think these movies made the defining case the Gotham is Chicago a city that is different at night than it is I guess on the softball field during the day whom all right Alice again he takes over now Alice is going to rep she representing and about last night tell us why about last night should move on in this yeah I mean okay so we can debate and this is a question about what is a Chicago movie and I think about last night dot dot dot as I like to call it answers that on multiple levels so yeah of course it's set in Chicago it's recognizably Chicago released a particular slice of Chicago life is also of Chicago so this is a rom com as you put it tested I think there's there's a lot of comedy in this film I don't think there's a lot of calm in the rom in this film it's a really complicated story about you know is it's it's based on the play by David Mamet the play that made him a play right sexual perversity in Chicago and it's really a complicated sort of examination of what is it mean to be sexually attracted to someone and be in love in someone and navigate those things in a world after the sexual liberation right we're all of the kind of moral sign close to where parents did or didn't do no longer apply I mean the rules are all gone and how do you navigate that world so even though it's a rom com it's it's deeper and I think that makes it a Chicago movie because this is a deep city but it is I mean this is a movie about Debbie and Dan she's an art director and an advertising company come on Chicago he's a sales rep for restaurant supply company come on Chicago they need on the softball field sixteen softball in Grant Park all over a cake of old style and he she plays every she's watching her company's playing and then he's on the team the of the restaurant mothers the bar with a lot of the scenes on for I mean that is cargo those worlds wouldn't meet if you know and then of course they meet cute they fall in lust they move in together and then the drain lines a great line in the middle there she's like he's like that you can have that George is like I can have a shortly in the kitchen so it's like not too close to you you know and navigating that of course the people who steal the movie here the heath ledger of about last night are Jim Belushi Elizabeth Perkins two people with Chicago connections Elizabeth Perkins went to the pollen and everybody knows that Jim Belushi of course played the character Bernie in about last night the play when I think it was the Apollo theater whatever Chicago did it so then he's reprising for the both I think to me what's interesting about this film is that it's really a coming of age film rate and how do how do we come of age in Chicago I think is what this movie answers for me or what meet meet what drew me to it and and everyone in this film is trying to figure out who they are and how they're going to be in the world and and that's what I love about and that's the depth of it but this is a movie where so many of the people who are responsible for making it came of age David Mamet I mean I know he does about the movie but that's because he failed at writing as earth he wrote the screenplay for him because he and Denise yeah to clue who are screen writing or were for very very long time their first gig was doing the re write from my body guard which I mentioned earlier a fabulous five actually did make it out of the first round yeah yeah movie if you love Chicago if you're nostalgic for your interest in Chicago's history but they did the re write didn't get credit this is the first movie that they got credit for as the the screenwriters the writers of the film and it solidified their career I mean they blew up after them the great scene in that show at just the beginning the opening title sequence which you can watch on YouTube is straight from the play right and it is Belushi telling a story to rob Lowe and it's so ma'am it in its dialogue it so stylistic they keep switching Chicago locations you just don't see that in filmmaking today right it's really really they go from so you know you you can imagine that they worked on Randolph street that west loop area when it was like a meat packing places or was the restaurant supply companies and they they're walking across the Chicago River one of the bridges when you first see them and then they're on the L. and then they're in the bar and there's one other scene and in the end that just in those four shots and he's telling a story of his latest suppose it's sexual right all the credits rolling yeah again it's a rolling their off camera when you first hear their voices and you get it it it describe Chicago in four shots I mean at least a white ethnic nor cider experience of Chicago relatively fresh out of college or starting your career and kind of what the city like for you so if that's Alison Cuddy about last night as the film she's talking about it's taken on dark night which is right by mark baser three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred this is neck and neck your vote tonight may make the difference in which film moves on to the next round to the elite eight three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred is the ultimate Chicago movie cage match here on seven twenty we'll take a break come back and flipped the script and talk about why the other movie shouldn't MoveOn some good some good for.

"Justin Kaufman Liz Phair in studio with me tonight here in excess of seven twenty she's got her memoir out horror stories also producing new music as well and and and we're talking about your career and of course the memoir you talk about celebrity and it's interesting to me because you have played with celebrity entire career you you have an art history major background here an art history major and I wonder how much it plays in what we see from your image and what we see on the cover of your albums or what kind of music you're producing album by album because this gets broken down by rock critics and everyone about who Liz Phair actually is the kind of play with that is that is that kind of your vibe to to be almost a contemporary artist in rock music absolutely and thank you for asking me about this because I think it is misunderstood I did come from an art art history background and my mother was a docent at the Chicago Art Institute for like forty five years so I grew up thinking that art was a playground and that you should defy expectations and that you should play with your medium he should challenge us in new ways and do exciting stuff so I'm coming at it from a totally different approach than the journeymen musician who's coming from a long line all the way stretching back to blues you know like is a totally different way to approach it maybe I'm more Talking Heads David Byrne ask about it it's like performance art and me and you see that though you see that in the office if you put out I can't remember the name of the outline style this is fiber was like is this fair no pop star what is happening with with the way that you're presenting yourself everything but there were some critics here in Chicago they said no I get what she's doing and this is really a reflection of celebrity and pop stardom and and everything in between and you're approaching it like in our project and now that wouldn't be shocking at all artists changed genre and they do this kind of country album or look at Gaga look at how many different persona she's put on to change and that's refreshing and that's exciting and that's what I saw all the way back then but I think other people didn't perceive me as having an art background and they saw me as this confessional sort of Argenteuil I was actually very sophisticated at that point with my real education about art and I'd intern for Nancy Spiro in the in column in New York and work for ad passkey here I knew about art and I knew about provocative ness and I knew about you know challenging the norms it's a weird place to do it maybe I guess maybe I mean if you think about all the rock bands of of all stature are all our descent and hard the way that they and their mediums and and whatnot but I just think about the original kind of following you had and all the people that ex excel in Guyville they just a kind of spoke to them they said this is my artist this Liz Phair can do no wrong and then you start doing things that were defying expectations trying different things taking different risk how do you get them to go along with you because that's maybe where the static would be is a someone at the fourth or fifth album going it is not as good as an exile in Guyville or whatever might be you know well I mean just unpacked the first part I was a woman working in a man's business and if you want to know you know other than Wall Street rock and roll is very male back then everyone who works in a studio all the bookers all the managers all the musicians most of the audience were male and so for me to do something unusual was what I had to do to break my way in I was gonna have to kick down some walls so the only way to do that as with like a shock to the system because there's no way to just be included slowly with like will give you an endless you know like I said no no no no I'm gonna make a record and you're gonna have to contend with that right I can make a record I know you're gonna feel stupid because at that party you sat next man's plain to me all this stuff but I'm not done you notice I do have some sense of that and the pop stuff there was a conflict there was a perfect storm because in our culture the male Indy five was about countering mainstream the big eighties hair bands which you had to cut I mean who is going to get in one of those right so the indie rock guys from the nineties came up after punk and it was a very do it yourself and you just if you had something to say just grab a crappy amp get on stage and do it so they were invested in this kind of war with mainstream that as a woman or as a young woman I didn't care about I didn't know about I came from the suburbs I left the rate so it was all for me just equally compelling versions of the culture and you get lumped in I guess with that because it looking at is a fan of the music myself at the right time and right place in the generation of being nineteen twenty years old that's what you almost were attracted to regardless of gender you were attracted to artists that weren't there Vance or you know that was just so maybe in a way you were lumped in with that and so when the pops stuff came around people like dinosaur junior I mean Liz Phair just put out of it but the idea being that you are part of that scene yeah yeah yeah you talk about it being male dominated world and your accent Guyville is all about that and and interpret I want talk about interpretation as well as we're running out I mean I can talk to for hours and hours about your career the fasting thing you said this in the book and you said this on tour as well is you know you have the chapter hashtag which is all about your ME two moments and and rock which is I want to see shocking but it's not it's just feels like of course all the programmers and record look companies and labels and radio stations of our techs but the issue here is that there was a great point you put out about the idea that you're you're Frank your lyrics about sexuality you know the idea that maybe they're misconstrued that's why men in the business kind of were expected things from you but you said that the cause and effect doesn't work that way because this was happening long before you even a musician there was a whole culture of rewarding man for being aggressive and establishing your alpha male qualities and that meant having a lot of babes you know that you could Paul and there was just a long history of thinking that if you're gonna be in rock and roll you should be living a wild life and you should be doing all these exciting things so I think there was just a permission in the culture to treat women who were rarely in the music business themselves working in it that way but like a glorified a lot of the I didn't think everybody was decks I thought they just were aiming in the wrong direction and I ate I just had to like run away from them I was I was making a joke wire women's hip so big because we're always running away from Felix I think you know and that is the best thing about the me too moment is that like a get pushed people back a little bit right and so I I can feel it on social media and everything I was a little bit more respectful they give me some personal space and I'm trying to see what they can get off me every second of every day and that was what I was doing all those years ago with my sexuality my overt sexuality was when I was sick of being chased to try to you know see if someone could get something off me I turned around and charged at them with my full sexuality or even pretend sexuality on display to push them back to give myself some space and say you know it's like snarling an animal turnaround in starling it a predator do you recognize the impact it had on young women who hadn't heard anyone sing like that hadn't hadn't heard lyrics like that in the music that they love it was huge because there was that can I say Madonna **** complex eye cut some pass that said you can be a good intelligent young woman and still have really passionate desires and want to do sexual things which I did and I think a lot of women really either we're afraid of that or ran toward it and said great again this complexity I'm fighting for complexity and I'm fighting against binary ways of thinking and I don't mean in this woke way I mean like let's involved because our society is evolving so fast and if you're not gonna be able to keep conflicting thoughts hold them in your brain at the same time you never gonna be able to deal with the globalization that's happening right now we're dealing now in a world in an era of systems and we need to think like that could there be a Liz Phair doing exile in Guyville today with all the systems and everything that set up that way is there a moment for young musicians to to snarl back here at the systems that are being created don't you think Billy I listed especially with the way that she's dressing I mean don't you feel like she's kind of snarling back there's just two people on that stage and she's the biggest artists I mean that's a small back I recognize that as a Liz Phair ask you did the Magdalene a chapter you talk about the photo shoot and talk with your life and photo shoots and is a great line and I think I wrote it down just about the idea of this idea of people trying to take your image or trying to take your take a little bit of you and you mentioned a little bit you know with the that with even we were just talking about with the hashtag chapter mean how often is that an issue for Liz Phair the idea that people just all around in the celebrity everything around you these were little pieces yeah they do they take bites of you my friend need now is that I was at a radio stop and she was shocked by how that operates the way that I'm sort of like a prop and you take a picture of me or you want to tell me something about your life it's hard to absorb all those messages coming right at you know about yourself about their lives and what I what is taught me is patience and I always ask people's name when I take a picture with them and make them introduce themselves to me and I always look them dead in the eye because it's it's easier for me to handle being ng push around and pulled around and put into this position and told you know I I just I hold on to these tiny little human moments and that's what gets me through when you think about everything that's in the memoir and the through lines in what we hope to see the second and more so well we'll talk about pieces of you how much of this project is to take back control to say this is my story this is these are my words I don't have anybody else around me that's trying to take pieces or or fashion who won Justin you're so good you're very very insightful thank you for this interview that's exactly what it is in twenty sixteen twenty fifteen twenty sixteen I was really impacted by what

have to ask you guys you've all covered a bear Super Bowl a cubs World Series a white Sox World Series three Stanley cups you've all covered this six both six bulls that's right you were all part of that in some way shape or form cell we want to cover next to one another symbol you want another because we're suit or maybe not maybe it's not even at the Chicago story maybe on a national level as or anything what what's out there that you want to cover a dream story you know I I was supposed to cover the Olympics in Calgary I did go to the Olympics in Atlanta and ninety six yeah I did go down there is a fan and that was a one of the best experiences you could ever have well I was supposed to cover Calgary and the station was sold also I me a media stations soul I was so heartbroken because that's something I wanted to actually cover it after I'd been there is a fan in ninety six that that I really I really loved it I mean I always love the Olympics with you being able to do it as my job is what I always wanted to do okay that's a good answer yeah I got a lot of things on my bucket list I want to go to and is a fan of what we wanted to end is all it is just the big stuff like a masters you know I rode my going to see a Kentucky Derby just to see what it's like in that type of atmosphere I've never been down the brickyard for Indy five or not that I'm a huge particular fan of those sports but just as a guard at one time yeah terms cover one more thing Hey I've been on the Blackhawks pre and post for two years now and they haven't made the playoffs so I want another step so yeah I'm I'm I'm the windy but I I'd like to be around those guys after experiencing it with them as so we at so young an age to see if they can get back to that stage again further along in their careers not just not just for for sat at the satisfaction to see kind of come full circle to see if they're capable of doing that that would be real cool story my might yeah you know I we've had a similar situation with that and with the station on the white Sox are for a couple years it's been building towards something so I would love definitely like to be a part of then building toward what they want to be building toward and that's sustained winner and at least to get to you know to a playoff game at least at this point would be would be nice especially for a yeah for those of been around for awhile covering that team since the last World Series and seen the kind of ups and downs that the that they've had as a franchise in and finally decided to pick a direction to go in and try to see it through at B. recall that actually did happen are we talked about Walter Payton we talk about Michael Jordan being exceptional athletes and great all around people to special with Walter Payton who do you think would have paid him eyes the ideal Chicago athlete male or female just impeccable on and off the field good solid I have so many guys come to my yeah I mean I'm not around baseball out these days and you can put more than one yeah I like the layout Luol Deng if you ever knew about Luol Deng and his life and what he's done with his life he my son is twenty two years old and when he was little he would get jerseys from a from from couple people I never bought one until I bought loud tank because I found out his story I knew about him and what he has done with his life and how he has spent his money to go back to Sudan and help his former country and what he went through the the trials and tribulations his family had to go through yeah that that somebody that the people should really know about his past and what he's done and how important it is he is is actually the he's he's got these camps in in Britain where that London took him and his family stepfather was the best down in in Sudan was going to be murdered so they they eat they ended up in in London and he's done so much and I think that's something that when you find out some pieces of beyond a an athlete that they do so much I treasure that yeah and there's a lot and there's a lot of people who do things in the committee that don't want it out there I I haven't been around Anthony Rizzo whole lot and yes but everything I in terms of what he does for people especially for cancer patients I'm really impressed by that and another guy that that people should start learning about if they haven't already is robin letter the black car because he's been sober less than two years there was a lot of things that led to his kind of going off the rails in his career for a while and he's got the proper help he went up into long term rehab and he's come out on the other side become a real spokesman for mental health everything all the dots that connect to mental health in terms of the pitfalls along the way in trying to cope before you get the proper kind of help and he's a really interesting guy in the little different from hockey standpoint is that he's a little bit more outspoken than the normal hockey players to come out and clean yeah he's only he's only six weeks into Iraq cost career he's been fantastic in that so far and he's since he's gotten well he's put a message out there that's been real strong and powerful and even though he's a subdued low too low key type of guy he is real interesting here on and off yeah I got I got a couple baseball players one from each side at the result for sure because I had a friend who lost a daughter at the age of eight for offer can't from cancer and Rizzo's foundation was a huge huge help to them yeah I mean just not only from financial support but from comfort were acting actually went out to visit her band and knew about her and and it it just kind of touched me because I know this person as a human being I mean I don't know at the is as well he was over it was a rookie my first year of one of history's first you're in San Diego I when I was out there with them and I didn't really get to know all that well but the way he touched that one family that I know very well speaks volumes to the kind of person that he is I mean having gone through cancer himself from here to have a greater appreciation for what other families go through and to you know to follow up lots of monasteries you know these guys make a lot of money they're not forced it'll have to throw money I don't have it doesn't mean that they don't have to give it up there John Lester's another guy like that well Jon Lester light as well yeah he is he's there at the house he goes all that yeah he is present and the other guy you know is it got an up and comer in my opinion is to manage it and it also because seven as wife do a lot of things that a lot of people don't know about on the south side he is really passionate about the city that he plays in on the side of town that he plays in he wants to give opportunities to those who don't have it and I think that that's admirable again he's got the cash doesn't mean you got to do it and I think that you'll be able to do that for playing a hundred sixty two games of baseball and on days off you know he's he's with kids is beyond looking for housing for people I mean it's it's it's not a privilege kids to have at this time is on the list of course managed to Kansas city to go to the Negro league museum I mean he is so invested in the community and bought a house in the south suburbs I mean yeah he's he's here for to stay and these are guys who can help to root for because just because of the fact that now is a great bike by baseball players but their tremendous human beings you can you can get behind I mean there's a there's a lot of guys we cover because already that are not the greatest human beings they may be great baseball players may be great hockey players McGriff football players the other somewhat easier somewhat hard to root for ties but these are guys that you can really get behind and is a lot more of them in my opinion yeah and the other right it's any musician in any maser sure raced out Chris Boden here quick break and we'll be back tell you where you can find all of the these veteran awesome force broadcasters and you can follow my mind love I keep saying that thirty I'll consider myself they have to write it so we're all equal I just learned no I they're going to be user more after this WGN airline.

No one expected that Jesse Millette with the police file dump in the four hundred plus files that now reporters everywhere are trying to get through and see what's in them Zito's anything there, by the way, he did not have a tuna salad sandwich that was for another friend, the one that survived the taxi.

There's some juicy stuff in there. So we'll have Kim's following that.

He just returned from something Everest. And it's just it's, it's remarkable what we've heard, and horrific at the same time, what we've heard just has happened there as eleven deaths the most one of one of the records. One of the more deadly years on record. And you were there at a time, when there is this line, this image, this long line of climbers Alex, you describe to us about what it is. We're seeing there. These this is the final ascent to ever see that we see this backup of these all these climbers getting ready to try to some at the peak. Well, first off, you know, condolences to all the victims and their families, who I can't imagine being the families of those victims, the two Americans, I actually. Got to meet down a base camp and during the climb. So thoughts are certainly with them. You know what you're seeing there to be careful. Not completely insensitive. But we are talking about Mount Everest. I it is a very, very dangerous mountain, and everyone who climbs needs to accept that. There's certain level of risk there. I actually summited the next day and kind of got to see some of the aftermath of this, but first off, you know crowding isn't necessarily a surprise on Everest threes. And being is, you'll only have two weeks every year where the mountain might be some of those, some days, you might have three or four days. So last year, you.

"Your point Justin Kaufman is a political attack. Nothing more. The Cam FOX is not about Jaffe small let that get it straight. That's a front. Rather? It's about trying to remove a. Who is a threat to the old boys power in the city and in that state? System of power, which was basically mirrored by what happened here. Let me let me also say that there is the F O P has has a vested interest in the municipal election, which is up tomorrow. They're their candidate preferred candidates, Lori Lightfoot. It's not a stretch to say that this is bad headlines for the Cook County board president who's former chief of staff is the state's attorney. So there's a lot of politics trying to grab headlines today before a municipal election. Why not do this on Wednesday? So you're not in the election. The Jetstream not to get back to buckle. My point is I think I understand what flavors come. I'm not saying. He's accurate that he's right. I would agree idea that there's politics of this year. The seems to be a lot about gather an outlet like the politics of outraged feel like all of us in the outrage that you're talking about, and I know that could sense that could feel they're using that I can feel it in the therapy would agree with not. Not. I don't don't get sucked the politics of this would agree that is not all about just Jesse. I think it is though about faith in our systems. And I think that she represents the that office, and we need to have faith that what was done was done for a reason. And I think on its face right now to any citizen, take the F O P out of it. And he's citizen looking at the facts of this case, it doesn't seem to add up. And I think that's where we we do need answers so outdoor for you. What happens is he f o p front and center. When Edberg beats case when alderman, Ed Burke, pizzas corruption case. And then it gets thrown out by the turning it is politics. Not going to be up there saying what about equality and Justice for all. That's just a question that I think is being asked.

Pullover on the Eisenhower. Yeah. He was that sick. And then he came in on Thursday, but probably shouldn't have. But he was there. Hay fever and everything. Right. So we all had we all had big plans. Dave, I know had big sports plans. I had plans this weekend. Everybody had something to do. So and Joe came in on Thursday like game here. We're all like man you touch. I swear get away from me Joe. Yeah. But Steve had. I'm not that way. Joe? You're always a friend. Always welcome. That's what I'm talking about. That's what I've had allergies toward the end of the week last week that of course, are not allergies. He's got a well. It doesn't help that. I'm sure Steve stepped one foot out last night. My wife went to see the. I guess we could say this the shits creek show at Chicago theater. They had yesterday. S H asterik gastric asterik gastric shell the popular show out of candidate Eugene Levy and his son. They did a talkback last that a Chicago theater and my wife went to the nine o'clock show there were two seven and nine and they made everybody Wade out in line and the temperature drops I think from five o'clock in the afternoon to nine o'clock. Yeah. She got out of line and just went and Wade into Walgreens watch the asker somewhere on missed the Oscars for that. But she said the line was like three blocks down because they had they were late to open the door, and everyone was just freezing. Because they maybe they left their coat in the car. They were going into theater, and they left everybody out on State Street. Just like fend for yourself. And she said, it was pretty nice. A long time since I've been to show where there's a first show, and they have to let like those people coming out. That's why they probably. That's how you die right there in line. That's how you die right there. Are you die? So maybe C was waiting in line. We have a lotta down trees. I'm sure Dave. Yeah. Branches. And the my grill covers again flying across the yard go retriever velcro day. Well, yeah, that's a big issue in the yard. They happened. The last time we those the high wind warning a few weeks ago. Brigham down or something. Carolina. But you gotta do it tight. Yeah. I just I don't know. I didn't think they'd go anywhere. I love that. Mary's like, it's Dave's fall is your fault. The winds were so totally I admit it. We had winds that were inaccessible sixty miles per hour in a severe thunderstorm warnings fifty eight miles per hour. I got that on the top says anyone on a plane yesterday. No. But I had a ton of friends leaving and they got delayed. My friend was going to Toronto and it's four hours including an hour on the tarmac on the plane. So that was all because the high winds, so they I'm sure everybody who cut friends going out of New York because we have the big shot for show this weekend. And everybody's yesterday was to get away day. So everybody got delayed coming out of the airport. So always fun, right? How was your shot? And there was great. It was great as you can hear my voice. It was great. We we are yesterday. I was like. We now have at least text exchange with you. You had a show Friday and Saturday night. On Friday afternoon pizza. Chatting with you. And you said that you you had been out after the show. There was a post show was the first show. There was a very surreal night on Friday night that we give you a quick idea. We did it at the hideout high. That's a great club right in the shadow of Lincoln yards. So Lincoln yards. If you're hearing about the news, the big development. So there's a big controversy swirling because they want to keep that place open. But when you're at the it's like an old eighth frame house when you're there, it's really this industrial area. Everything else has gone. So they're ready to tear this place down. This is it looks like a almost like a beginning of a movie really well that house on the prairie is still there. But there's this a lot around this place, but it's still pumping. There were two shows are show sold out there probably one hundred and seventy five people there. There's one hundred seventy five people waiting to get into the next show. And so what happened is the bar was totally packed. They couldn't get in. So everyone, of course, you just to show your sweaty and tired in your voices shot and people are what's the plan? What is the plan as far as? Okay, sir. Exactly every every mom grandma cousin friend from high school. What's the plan? What are you doing? What are we doing? So I had to. I'd Mark baiser does his show their markets said that there is a on Chicago avenue. There was a talker area. That is kind of quiet, but they do karaoke there and your sweet yes written Ukrainian village. You know, what I that's the only thing I can think about because he had told me that I'd gone with him one time, and it was kind of surreal. It was his really didn't. When I was. There was only like five of us. And it was like tacos, and you're like, okay. So I told everyone let's go there. Let's go. So fifty seventy five people show up Daytona karaoke on. It is straight up Spanish karaoke. It is. And we're not talking. I've never done this before we're talking the old ladies who who have made a career out of this. They get up on stage like. Just beautiful and then everyone who got up to the karaoke was top notch. I mean at the top. I don't often hear a high ratings for karaoke. But it's in the back of of of a really cata suspect, looking taka RIA on Chicago, and we stayed there way too late and the next day everybody reported that they were not feeling well, and so, you know, twenty years ago when you were doing this shot in fraud shows, you could stage. Wake up the next morning and have no effect. This is the twentieth anniversary. So I'm forty four. So that was twenty four when we started. So if you were twenty four go into the the rea- karaoke, you'd be like, hey, what's what are we doing Saturday now? I'm not gonna make it not so easy. In fact, the show on Saturday night. It did to an extent the Saturday show was was a secret show we did cards against humanity, which was just a blackbox doing all the same sketches. We did in nineteen ninety nine and the show at that. We did the high that was a little new, and so it did in the sense that it was a different vibe to begin with. But the good news was that most of the audience that was there on Saturday. Was there at the talk re on Friday. So they all felt its audience was Oslo jazz. Everybody was like all right. We're all together in this house. I had a great weekend. We'll talk about more of it. All right. Let's take. Let's let's find out. What's coming up in the news? And then we'll get to the top six. Steve zander's what we've got coming up. Our Kelly is slated to appear in court today this morning, perhaps on Allah Gatien's, he sexually abused a woman and three girls over the course of twelve years spent the weekend in jail.
