With no Keystone XL pipeline, whats Albertas Plan B?
"Jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story. Jason marcus off is the alberta correspondent for maclean's magazine. He joins us to try to explain what happens now. Hello jason wish me luck so in the couple of weeks now. Since joe biden has taken office and immediately cancelled the keystone excel permit. How his albert reacted. Not well as could be. Expected is opposed the way i'd put it. You know jason kenney got elected with a three word slogan not a phrase three word slogan jobs economy pipelines pipelines was the big punctuation point on that. And it's been a big issue for help out bird government and the economy for a long time that we don't have this big glut of oil sands and oil were producing and nowhere really to shit or no way to ship it out of there. That's been a big drag on alpern awale prices and benjamin prices for quite a while now keystone excel has been in the works for basically a decade now uh since they applied for this project as transcanada energies into long that they're no longer called transplanted called tc energy. Canada became less of an on vogue term to use in the names and this this has become the gun of the poster child. The original poster child for environmental activism and push back against oil industry pipelines The americans have been pushing back on this south from the left for quite a while. obama killed in two thousand fifteen. He decided to not allow permit. Donald trump brought it back in two thousand seventeen and it was no surprise. Almost anybody that Biden was going to kill it in in twenty twenty one Once he got nauseated and yet it was portrayed as a major disappointment and huge letdown for the government and to some extent for canada. Yeah i was gonna ask if obama killed this thing once already And it's really unpopular with the american left. Why didn't it seem like we were more prepared for this. You know i played a clip In the intro of kenny reacting on the day of biden's inauguration but surely as soon as it became clear he won. This was coming down the pipeline. There was an optimism and almost. I'd say an idealism about how a biden administration might act. People knew well the the history and the baggage that this project had that it was killed by obama when joe biden was the vice president of course and this had become this iconic push for the environmental movement did it it had that totemic status and yet there were people within the canadian government and especially the alberta government who thought they crashed an argument Through which this would work and that had several layers to it one Was the fact that there were many union. Jobs in america And in canada on the go for this there were was going to produce jobs at a time when jobs are scarce and these economies need these construction industrial and infrastructure jobs and they were hoping that would appeal to the lunch bucket. Union leanings of joe biden in his administration. There was also an argument that this was not the same project and the ever loyal sent throughout the same oil sands that they were in twenty fifteen when this project was rejected by obama or before twenty fifty back when there was much less of an issue of oil sands cleaning up their act like there is now out the oil sands have worked their best to lower the carbon intensity and the carbon footprint of their projects and they were going Tc energy the company that was going to build. This pipeline was talking about making their project. Carbon zero carbon neutral net zero through various means the actual pipeline construction itself. Not the oil flowing through it and there was also gonna talk Giving indigenous which oppose this quite often in the states Some equity stake in it so there were various ways. The canadians albertans thought they could thread the needle and make this an appeal peeling project. Make it some kind of package. Deal with other green initiatives that That canada and biden would go through jointly but the legacy of this project the baggage of this project mistakes the politics surrounding this whole saga from obama to trump to biden Made it an easy win for For biden to kill despite all the positives that this project could have given

The Importance of No by Chris Lovett
"So how do we get better at saying. No a no for me is providing a challenge is an opportunity for negotiation is a moment in time to make a decision to choose. A course of action is also an opportunity to hold the mirror up quote. Hold up your shield of no. Because he can't kill everything with your sword of yes kenney win turn fomo into jomo. The fear of missing out is such a poll that we can agree to all sorts of things cover for this person. Go to this thing. Help our this men lead on that internal alarm bells ring out and we present excuses not to say no. I have to attend that meeting because someone else will be there. What would so-and-so think. If i put my name forward people will think i don't care i feel guilty for not helping the list goes on. There's a lot of social pressure connected with fomo as the perceived sense of duty and obligation to do things like answer emails at ridiculous times. Our desire to get ahead mixed with social media diction has ended up growing the emotionally intelligent antidote the joy of missing out a pretty new concept originally related to oppose the scrolling on our phones and need to fit in comparing what we have with others on regular basis being okay with not everything being everywhere or seeing everyone grants you the ability to be more present and understanding of your own capacity. Jomo helps to phase out the should 's and become more intentional with our time it allows us to focus where we are needed on the most important things and as a byproduct the less time spent being anxious or competitive gives us back our energy. Can i go away and think about. It is not to no snotty. Yes it's a bit of time for you to weigh up everything else. You've already got to do and decide whether it is important enough to include this. Bit of reflection is super powerful and provides some clarity around the consequences of another. Yes how much time with this new thing take. Who else could do it instead. Does it really need to be done right now or can await ask them to reprioritize. Some bosses don't really know the intricacies of the tasks that are going on in. The team is not their job to know all the ins and outs but it is their job to make sure you have everything you need to be successful. It's their job to help you move obstacles out of the way so you can flourish but it is also your job to tell them about all the obstacles. They're not mind readers if he get another request from your boss to do something and you are already at capacity. Tell them and then ask them. What their priority is now. Because if you take on this new thing one of the older things are working on clearly not as important anymore. Empower others to become self sufficient. Have people become relying on you without me knowing it. Are they calling you before trying to figure things out for themselves or you rescuing others because you feel you need. Do we love to help. And we love to be part of a community were social creatures that want to nurture and put others first giving advice and getting hooked on always being the one to rescue can be an occupational hazard helping behaviors can trigger dopamine. Serotonin oxycontin on neurochemical cocktail. That makes us feel good while seeing people flourish and feeling satisfied that we have provided. Advice is our goal. It's only momentarily gratifying. Defects of you always helping. And yes ing. Everywhere can cause severe long-term damaged in we may not even see one person's inability to say no can bring the whole team or organization crashing down. Sometimes we just can't help but wanna fix everything for people. The problem now is that there are too many things going on in our working part time. The circus with all the juggling and plate spinning you sign up for tasks become a burden and so do other people your over promising and under delivering and relationships. He works so hard to build or falling away. If the relationship is strong the party receiving the no will understand. Be empathetic to your mounting commitments. And help you by giving you the space you need. We believe others will judge us more harshly than they actually do. The majority of people are so caught up in their own world with their mounting of things that they would probably forgotten about your answer and move on to something else so my challenge for you now is to have courage to be brave and go.

As oil and gas declines, where do the workers go?
"Part. Three of our special five part series with the narwhal brings us to sharon riley. She is the l. berta investigative reporter for the narwhal. She's a lifelong alberton and she reports from the oil patch. Hello sharon hydrogen. How are you. I'm doing really well. And i'm excited to get a glimpse of what a really quickly. Changing industry Looks like on the ground. And why don't you just start. Maybe so we have someone to frame this around with telling me a little bit about dust. And taylor who is he and what did he do. It doesn't is one of the people that came across when i started looking into the energy transition in berta and what that really looks like on the ground for workers who are making the leap on their own so dustin was born in nova scotia. His his dad had worked in oil on an offshore oil rig there. He moved when he was a kid and he kind of has what. You would consider a fairly typical story for a lot of oil. Chris in this province but yeah i left left school before graduated and pretty much started working right off the hub and like most people numbered. I ended up in the energy industry working in oil and gas Making decent money. I mean it was pretty easy to find a decent job. He told me that it is first job. He made sixty thousand dollars a year. So i don't know about you. But when i was sixteen i was not making that kind of money. But that's a pretty typical story in alberta when the industry is booming oil and gas industry is booming. There's money to be made and of young people. Young men in particular in this province haven't always seen a reason to you know stick around pursuing education when you could support your family and your lifestyle so immediately right out the gate and what happened to him after he'd been there for a while and from your piece in your reporting i gather. It's not super uncommon these days. Yeah i mean. I think there are lots of reasons. Why an individual worker might decide that they want to shift out of the oil and gas industry their cultural reasons. You know a lot of oil and gas work involves working in a camp means being outta town away from home for at least a ten days if not a couple of weeks at a time. Which if you're if you're having if you have a family means you're away from your family for all that time as well. So what dozen described as a bit of a moral conundrum definitely remember watching the oil spill happen It was plastered all over the news for days. And i kind of watch this giant catastrophe. Just unfold in front of our eyes for days on end. Never really knowing what was going to happen. And it was kind of a heartbreaking moment he just suddenly something clicked in his mind where he decided that no longer could he work in an industry that he thought was detrimental to the planet and to future generations and he said that had a lot to do with him having kids and wondering about the world. They're going to live in and he decided to make a shift. It was a gamble for him. Where did he go well. He part of what does made him decide to make the shift as well as that. He lost his job so he lost his job so he went back to school retrained to be a solar installer in alberta. His story is the successful. He's now gainfully employed as a solar installer and he's completely left his oil and gas lifestyle. He can be home every night that that's not the reality for every worker who who may want to make a transition or have to. Because the job that they've had for many decades has disappeared. He had to do this on his own. You know he didn't have a lot of government support. There's no oil and gas transition worker program in alberta or in canada for that matter and so it's a. It's a financial gamble. It involves a huge lifestyle shift and something he took on his own. Before we talk about you know how the transition is moving along and what's to come. Can you give me a sense of just how prevalent of the oil and gas industry is in alberta. Because for for someone like me who's spends most of his life in ontario it can feel like everyone in alberta works in oil and gas. It can feel like that as well and there's are different stats out there. As to how many people are directly employed in the oil industry cap. Which is the canadian association of petroleum producers. An industry group. They said in two thousand seventeen so it's a couple years old now. There were hundreds of thousands of jobs from oil. And i think they said around three hundred and forty thousand now. Obviously that number has changed a bit since the pandemic kit. Everyone but it does go to show that. That's that's a large number of jobs and those are jobs directly related to oil so that doesn't include all of that hotels and hotel workers restaurant workers people who support the industry And the people who are directly employed in another way of looking at it is Looking at statistics. Canada figures statistics. Canada doesn't directly breakdown oil workers. It lumps them all in sort of what you might call extractive industries so that includes mining of all types oil and gas forestry fishing. And if you look at those numbers. One in every sixteen workers is employed in those extractive industries. So if you're in a room of sixteen people. One person is employed in that extractive industry. That is quite a few right. And where are we right now. I guess as we're talking in the transition towards renewable energy in in canada and around the world just in terms of how much longer that one in sixteen figure is going to be viable for albert. I think that's a million dollar question. We we hear a lot about the energy transition. We we hear from politicians and environmental groups. We've heard it from justin trudeau. We heard it from. Joe biden presidential debate that the us needs to transition away from oil. Even albert premier jason kenney has made reference to the energy transition is going to happen at some point here and just been pretty widely reported and repeated that if we're going to meet canada's climate targets many workers in fossil fuels will need to look for new jobs

"All right cheers. Thanks for joining US. In the garage. And thanks for Tana friends. Thanks for telling a friend. That's right I got a few thoughts here captain and you're going to hear everyone of them but I have time for your thoughts. This is just a weird weird colliding worlds here for me. 'cause what I feel like is we have four people in the middle of the situation while five if you include The younger Gregory Floor. Who was driving the truck though real victim to me seems like this. Caleb individual that sitting passenger seat and Leo's car he seems completely terrified in almost frozen in the moment. Not really knowing what to do not knowing how to react. And here's the other thing had we had other individuals just not react. It have gone this far. I feel like we have McKay jumping his vehicle in front of leak ohs because he's coming up at the end of his jurisdiction at the line. That cuts off his jurisdiction. I almost feel like this is a situation where McKay thought you know what I'm going to pin him down inside my jurisdiction because he fled the scene. I'm GONNA do some property damage to his his vehicle and I'm going to get out. I'm GonNa Pepper spray this kid. And when the other officer shows up which I know is in route according to my radio or at least according to what we've been told was said the audio is conveniently not there maybe inconveniently not there. I don't know how you WANNA spend that but the easiest thing to do would have been like you just said before the break to continue to pursue Lieko Kenny. He's going to run out of gas or stop. Eventually we know according to Caleb that he was intent on going to his family's property you could've simply followed him. There stayed inside your vehicle and when the other officer arrived the other officer could have taken over the situation but possibly other officer gets killed. Because I think there's enough evidence to prove that there was something happening with Leo Kenney Mentally With his health I think the look the the victims are the family of these two individuals because both their deaths are caused by cause and effect and and adding fuel to the fire and never backing down. It's almost like these two bulls that were on a collision course for the last four years right. And that's that's what I'm getting at causing effect. I think the most effective way to control the situation would have been to continue to to follow the suspect and wait for the other officer to take over the situation. We can't get into what ifs after that we we just don't know But there is protocol that could have been followed and I think that McKay went out of his way to not follow that protocol. I think he went out of his way to really turn into a bully in this situation where I didn't see that in the two thousand and three arrest the other thing too. I WanNa throw these other stories aside because I really wanted to form an opinion on what I thought of the situation inside a what we see on camera inside what we hear from the witness statements later. I didn't want to get into this. Whole Floyd in. Mackay. We're friends. I couldn't I find any proof that the two of them were friends assists them speculation and I saw a lot of speculation on that. The issue being here is I. Don't think the two types of lineup well to be friends one. It doesn't seem like floyd had any friends. It seemed like it would be very difficult to be a friend of his either way. It's a two way street yet. Thin I argue is that the community is so small that it would be almost impossible. Not think of them as acquaintances and then the other thing too is we have on the reverse of that McKay. Who by most accounts his personality was? He was black and white. He was wrong and right and he wouldn't. I don't know that he would have been friends with somebody of Floyd's character or passed so that one seems a little weird to me and that's why I. I wonder if we just have a weird situation. Where three worlds collide where you have Kenny. Who seems to be spiraling out of control and then we have McKay who with inside? This situation is obviously losing control. And then floyd who knows. When's the last time he had any control at all? It's just a weird weird tragic situation. All fold with band filled with bad behavior and fuelled with bad blood and to backup the cousin. The fact we have a retired officer saying. Hey that's maneuvered get in front of the person that's not something you do unless you had back up. So he saw that as being wrong he saw ramming. Lecoq's cars being away that you're escalating the situation. And then you get out. You're not protected if you are so fearful wiesner gun drawn Wiring you trying to talk to the individual you do none of that you go up and pepper spray so those are multiple things that a retired police officer which will normally always go to bat for. Police Officers Zane. Those don't make sense to me. Those are those are actions I woulda done. Yeah and I tell you what this might not be a a popular opinion to have but I do believe that. The the Floyd Shooting Kenny. I agree with the decision that it was justifiable. I also think that really that committee broke it down to the best of what what I believe. But wasn't that ruled within twenty four hours. Yeah but I'm not I'm not saying I never said that. I agree with the timeframe in which you released your your decision. I disagree with the the Decision Right. My two my two problems again because you have a grieving family take a little more time. Try to be a little more understanding of the situation and on top of that when you release this vote Video footage. Why is the audio compromised? Was this compromise by officer. Mackay or was this compromise by the committee who released this video Because that to me seems suspicious and and I think The Kenny family has the right to go. Hey this does. This doesn't make sense. On the same token we have a family that has been dealing with the antics in the behavior and I think the mental instability of Lieko and I and I wish again we just don't talk about mental health and not enough and I think sometimes when somebody's going down the wrong path we start thinking that that's alcohol abuse or drug abuse when it really might just be a inbalance in somebody that needs mental health. Help Yeah I. I do like the committee's decision or at least their statement of what they said in regards to both of these murders could have been prevented. If either one of these individuals would have behave differently or had more respect for the law or each other right you know. I think that that is really what I see here as well. And then my thoughts on the audio itself I almost feel like I would like to a statement in regards to that why it is what it is on the public view of the Dash Cam footage. I almost my my own. Personal belief would be that if it was compromised before it was released I feel like they would just have removed all of the audio rather than have it kick on at the end to notify us that. Hey it it's it's not there now. It's here actually. Don't believe it kicked on and I mean I'm telling you did unless somebody pointing wide it to the video I've watched it when when it starts to fade in it's it's almost like There's a gate almost like there's a gate on the audio or that the that the audio has just turned way down and because something happens whether it's the gunshots or the sirens blaring deck. That's why you can hear that loud peak of sound but those low level of car driving or McKay talking and radio host radioing. Something in would be low enough of a volume that we wouldn't be able to hear right and that's what I'm getting at. I'm wondering if that is something that McKay would have had control over inside the vehicle. Yeah I just wish either. One or both of these individuals would have had more respect for each other. And and there's no reason either one of them should have lost their lives over this. But I guess that's not the complete end of speculation in regards to officer. Mackay because there's some discussion out there that he may be involved or have some knowledge of another case that we've talked about several times on the show and that's the disappearance of Mara Merck and true crime. Garage was lucky. Enough to speak with Aaron Larkin someone who has spent a lot of time looking into the Mar Murray case and I wanNA thank you for taking the time to speak with me. You're.

"You're you're reading a movie script. Well you know it's officer so I I mean it takes a lot of balls to get out of your vehicle with no weapon after you see Officer gunned down or no screws as we pointed out right and so I don't know well the day after the shootings. The New Hampshire Attorney General held a press conference that stated the office. Mckay's Dash Cam and radio calls have provided the following information. Mckay observed Toyota driving on route. One sixteen with speeding and had expired registration. I WANNA cut in for many here. I have no idea how McKay would have saw the expired tags the expiration on these tags. They're they're they're traveling toward one. Another is seems like a difficult thing to spot and I know that in some states they don't even put the tag on the front of the vehicle but that's just an aside here right well unless they they do have computers that can read the license plate is is it possible that something triggered it for him right. He didn't have to visual. I gotcha drive. Pass them right. I I just wonder about the technology in an area that has three full time police officers now. But who knows anyway? He he's got. He's got supervision either way and he saw that it was expired. The statement goes on to say when pulled over the driver Lecoq. Kenny asked for another officer then drove away. Mckay pursued and overtook Mackay. Then pulled in front of Kenny's car forced it off the road and use pepper spray on the driver and his passenger Kenny. Then drew a handgun and shot. Mckay then ran him over another area. Man Gregory Floyd observed shooting from his truck he retrieved officer McKay's gun. He then shot Kenny when he told authorities. Kenny refuse to put down his gun. The Attorney General concluded quote Gregory. Floyd's actions were justified. Based upon dangerous circumstances confronted with efforts to assist McKay and quote. Floyd would not be charged. An officer Mackay died a hero. I wanted to make sure we read that statement because there's a lot of people that have a lot of questions speculation in suspicions regarding this whole thing that went down but we have crazy. Floyd saying that he doesn't know who Lieko is or McKay but there's some speculation that he actually knew officer Mackay yes. I was looking for good proof on that speculation to which I could not find it. Could you know but I certainly saw the speculation. We're not talking about an area where a ton of people live there and the the other weird thing to or you know the officers well but then you have to wonder does McCain. No Floyd Bright. It seems likely floyd would know McKay or no of McKay because you only have three officers. But there's also speculation. That floyd was leaving from the same place that Lecoq Kenny and Caleb had just laughed what I heard a rumor is Ligo and his buddy or buying their booze by their cranberry juice and Floyd sees them and actually calls McKay to let McCain now. Hey your buddy Lieko is here. And he has some booze on him. And then that's how McKay Started pursuing Lieko now again. I don't know other than the speculation I've heard and multiple places. I can't find that to be fact. Well after the funerals for the two dead men a groundswell of anger and protest began. Some people believe that officer. Mackay was hardly the innocent victim hero while others believe. Lieko got what he deserved and still others questioned. Why exactly convicted Felon Gregory? Gregory Floyd was permitted to shoot someone to death and walk away. Newspapers demanded the release of officer. Mckay's Dash Cam footage suspecting that he had antagonized Lieko. Tensions ran so high that officials. They formed a committee to encourage an exchange of facts. Instead of rumors and grudges. The committee did not take sides but issued a report. That said that it's likely both murders could have been prevented if quote either legal. Kenny had more respect for the law. Or Bruce Mackay had more skill at conflict management and quote or both is where you take that statement a little bit. Yeah or if Leo Kenney wasn't carrying a gun so wanna get your thoughts here because we discussed our thoughts of bit on the first arrest from two thousand and three now we have this this double shooting here where the first video my very basic and general opinion of the to the first video. Lieko is annoying defiant to the end. He won't let up. He's pushing and pushing and pushing and pushing the officer. I actually think that McKay handled the first incident very well. I don't know that I give them an A. Plus I give them like a B minus which I think is acceptable right. I I have like a total reverse of opinion on this situation. I almost feel like McKay should have been total control. I won't say that he got what he deserved. That seems like too cruel a statement or a thought for me to even have that is but it really feels to me like this is the reversal where McKay was really pushing the envelope and really could have just control this situation and a much better manner. No one had to be killed that day. Let alone to people. Here's a difficult thing. Those McKay knows leak. Oh for now several years. We now know that his behavior his antics his aggression. His violence is ramping up. So you have to keep that in mind that this officer knows this this individual very well? I question how did he know Lieko was there? I question was the actual reason Did he get a call from floyd? Did he pull him over? And then see that the The registration was expired. And as able to ask my father retired. Police officer retired detective. What do you see in this video on? One of the things that he thought was interesting was when you are following a car and you're the lone officer that you wouldn't make a move to get in front of that car protocol would be just follow. That car until backup comes or until that car stops. We don't see that here. That makes me believe that he knew floyd was behind him. That he knew he knew floyd and possibly friends with them because he makes a maneuver. As if there's two officers there and there was it then you get in front of Ligo and then you ram his car now. I don't know if that was an accident or if that was on purpose but again you know this individual. You're the officer. You're the one that's trying to. You should be controlling this situation. Not escalating not throwing gasoline onto a fire. If you know that this individual is not stable. Maybe not mentally stable. You are throwing gasoline on that fire by ramming that individual and I think you can tell that by the passenger in Lagos car and in the eyewitness and then you go and again instead of waiting for officers and said of Waiting for backup you go into instead of trying to talk to Ligo you go and pepper spray. 'em throwing gasoline on.

"On May Eleventh. Two Thousand and seven. Lieko left work at. This is a farm equipment garden supply chain around six PM. He and his best friend and CO worker and now roommate. Caleb MacAulay got into legal is powder blue. Nineteen eighty four Toyota celica supra for their evening the two picked up a handle of vodka and cranberry juice for a little mixer. Five out of five bottlecaps Ligo and Caleb drove down route one sixteen toward east and travelling at forty five to forty seven miles per hour. The speed limit in this area is thirty five miles per hour but soon a police. Suv This is a Chevy Tahoe. As heading toward them from the opposite direction is spotted so Lieko slowed down trying to avoid getting pulled over driving. The TAHOE was none other than corporal. Bruce Mackay McKay saw that the registration sticker on the Toyota was expired officer. Mackay flipped on his lights. Made A U-TURN and now he's chasing down the Toyota. According to Caleb Lieko pulled his car into the first available turn out on the side of route one. Sixteen we have dashboard footage of this and this video will also be at our website at true cram garage dot com. The two sat in the vehicle while officer. Mackay called in a request for another unit to provide backup on the call. Mckay said he pulled over Ligo Kenney sugarhill. Pd heard this call and was quickly route. Then officer Mackay got out of his vehicle now for those. That have not seen this video online. There is no audio for this portion of the video and McKay is just off camera as he approaches the driver's side window so we can't see him all we know about this. Portion of the stop is what Caleb later told investigators. Caleb says he observed the following from the passenger seat. Mckay asked for leak owes license and registration without telling him why he pulled him over legal refused and asked that another officer be called to the scene. Caleb says officer Mackay refused. This request. Lieko started making calls on his cell phone but fail to get a hold of anyone and then suddenly Lieko sped off leaving officer McKay's vehicle sitting in the dirt off of the side of route one sixteen Caleb says leaker was concerned afraid of the traffic stop and afraid of officer. Mackay leaker was in route to his family's property which was not far away at all this because Leo wanted there to be witnesses in case something should happen and to be clear. He's not speeding. One hundred miles an hour he drives off. Yeah that's one thing that I thought was interesting about this portion of the video. He's clearly not speeding away but officer. Mackay jumps in his vehicle and gives chase. He is racing at a much higher rate of speed. In my opinion well right to catch up with him with the Siren and lights on just a few hundred yards before the eastern line. Mckay past Ligo and slow to a stop forcing Lecoq's Toyota to a halt behind him. Mckay turn the Tahoe around to face. Lecoq's car and motion for Lieko to back up into A dirt driveway. This is a wide dirt driveway. Owned by the Mackenzie family. Lieko gestured out the window with his hand indicating to McKay the he wanted to to pass or as Caleb with say proceed to his family's property McKay was having none of this. Meanwhile a Gray Chevy Silverado. Pickup truck can be seen in the background of the Dash. Cam footage stopped on the shoulder of route. One sixteen and presumably observing all of this Lieko backed onto the dirt driveway. Mckay paused for a few seconds and then advanced his vehicle his bumper physically pushing. Leo's car up against a front end loader that was parked there. I think it's safe to say he rammed ramle goes car rammed him and pushed him into this front end loader then suddenly the audio around this time kicks in and we hear the blaring sound of the Siren McKay enters the frame on the right side striding up to Lagos open window immediately releasing a heavy stream pepper spray forcibly into the vehicle spraying both occupants. Mckay turns to jog away and then an arm comes out of the driver's side window holding handgun shots are fired in rapid succession and we can hear McKay groaning and pain then the car driven by Lieko backs up turns and drives off to the right out of the frame. The DASH CAM video ends there. But this is not the end of this encounter. Here's what we know happened from multiple witness statements. One thing that gets thrown in here captain that that may be of some interest to some. Is that apparently totally uncharacteristically of officer. Mackay he was not wearing his bulletproof vest on this day he was known to always wear his vest. So one bullet went through McKay's arm and four hit him in his side. Mckay likely in shock stumbled across the road dripping blood trying to pull his gun out of his holster. And that's when Lieko backed up and drove in his direction running his car. Right into the back of Officer. Mackay Caleb later told investigators that he thought this was accidental after all. Lita was likely at least partially blinded by the pepper spray right but then Ligo backed up and ran the Toyota forward right into McKay now now the Toyota is stuck because this vehicle is now on top of the COP as stated in bad blood. If the first attempt was an accident the second certainly was not and I tend to believe this. I I tend to believe it. None of it's accident. I mean before you hit the officer with your car. You pulled a gun and shot him multiple times. This horrific events still is not over sadly the other vehicle. We mentioned the pickup truck that was sitting on the roadway. A few hundred yards away. Witnessing this whole thing had to passengers inside the driver was teenager. Gregory P floyd and the passenger seat was his father. Gregory W Floyd these senior. Floyd walked over and grabbed officer. Mckay's dropped service weapon off of the ground. He checked that it was loaded as he walked toward the Toyotas passenger side and he raises his arm and he shot into the car shattering the window hitting the driver. Lieko in the head and the neck. The bullets whistled over calebs. Back as he over his knees terrified. Floyd yelled to his son to call for help on Mackay's cruiser Radio Floyd Junior as we're calling he's not technically junior grabbed the radio in. Mackay's empty cruiser radioed in officer down officer down. I don't you need to come. I don't know where you need to. You need to come the police officer. I think he's dead. The people that the officer was trying to stop all of sudden just started shooting at him and then my dad had me stop and then he tried to help the officer. That was on the call. Now according to Caleb as soon as floyd shot leaker without warning floyd ordered Caleb to grab leak owes gun and get out of the car or he's going to shoot him in the face. Caleb was convinced that floyd would shoot him so he decided to not touch the gun. He refused to touch the gun. In fact not wanting to give floyd in excuse to shoot him which was probably the move that saves his life shit man. I don't know if I would have been that quick on my head feet to come up with that in that situation especially when you're terrified instead caleb sat in the dirt outside the car with his hands in the air terrified and in tears. Floyd took Leo's gun from inside the car and then took off his shirt to make a tourniquet for the down officer so now. Floyd is shirtless. His huge belly hanging out holding to weapons both pointed at Caleb Dad Bod when officer Philip Blanchard arrived on the scene and told Floyd to drop the weapons he had to do. So a number of times including using some choice language before floyd complied but saying something like easy son. I'm quicker than you so strange. Then Floyd and officer blanchard hoisted the Toyota off of Officer. Mackay so that a nurse could give him. Cpr McKay had several lacerations on his face including having lost the tip of his nose. His skull is fractured. He had a shattered pelvis. And of course the gunshot wounds his intestines spilled out of a severe wound in his abdomen as he looked on great floyd said about McKay quote. He's fucked the cops yelled at him to shut up. Mckay is still alive at this time you know. Cpr being performed bright. You can't have this guy in the background sand. The guy's not gonNA make it people give up in those situations unfortunately the CPR was too little too late for McKay who was then pronounced dead at the hospital. Meanwhile no one at the scene check to see whether Ligo had pulse at this time he did not and he too was in fact dead and it's definitely disturbing video to watch knowing that both these individuals lost their lives. That's what was strange for me. Captain was going into it. I knew what the outcome was going to be but watching it. If it's still disturbing has happened so fast as it's like chaos happens so quickly you can't really prepare yourself for what you're about to see. So let's talk about Gregory Floyd. The man who so calmly walked up and Shot twenty-four-year-old Leo Kenney in the head the man that's faster than you are forty nine year. Old Gregory Floyd was a former marine and off the grid back woodsmen he and his wife and son also named Gregory lived just below the poverty. Line Floyd had had sixteen back surgeries and was relying on social security disability checks to get by. His wife was in a car accident and used a cane to walk and she rarely left the house. The Floyd's purchased their property with the proceeds of disability settlement. Floyd gone after a back injury. He suffered on the job. Most of their money went to pay for medications. Floyd was diabetic. He had a heart attack in two thousand six and was on twenty two different medications including antidepressants. The older Gregory Floyd father. Floyd had been arrested in Georgia in one thousand nine hundred eighty one for selling. Pcp and pot and was prohibited by Law from owning firearms which did not prevent him from keeping lots of guns stashed away at his home. He and his wife apparently were both big gun enthusiasts about ten years before the fatal traffic stop. The police were sent out to the floyd property. When neighbors turned floyd in for firing automatic weapons on his property at night on multiple occasions. They told police that floyd became paranoid when he took his medications. Both sets of neighbors appear to be afraid of floyd obtaining a search warrant for Floyd's home police found six guns this is N. A. May Nineteen Ninety seven search. Floyd handed them over without incident but the next day floyd threatened to sick his attack dog on and shoot a meter reader. Who was just doing his job on. The Floyd property when police came to arrest him for this incident. Floyd went off on a rant about his constitutional rights. He waved to the COPS. I know you wear vests so I will have to put it right between your eyes. I'm an ex marine and I don't miss while police were cuffing him. Floyd tried to knee one of them in the groin. He posted one hundred and fifty dollar bail and later pled guilty to attempted assault of a state trooper. He received a suspended prison sentence of one to three years on the condition that he stay out of trouble. It wasn't until after this conviction that his felony arrest in Georgia was uncovered which revealed that because he had a felony conviction. He was not supposed to own any gones so he was arrested again and another search conducted of his home resulted in seven. More guns being confiscated. Somehow Floyd managed to evade conviction for the threats to the meter reader. And the gun. Possession charges and things seemed to calm down for Floyd until this two thousand seven shooting of Ligo Kenny. So he could have something. Maybe a couple of screws loose. Or maybe it's crazy. Sob maybe no screws at all right. You must also held together by duct tape and chewing gum. So back at the scene of the officer Mackay and Lecoq any shootings when officer blanchard asked Floyd if he was okay. Floyd said quote. I'm fine. That was the forty third person I've killed. I had three tours in Vietnam. I'm a marine. I know how to use a gun. I don't know who the F he is. He's talking about Leo. I don't know who the F is under the car. Meaning McKay but God damn nobody's GonNa run somebody over and just run them down two times right in front of me. I've been around the world and I'm not putting up with that crap. This is quoted in the book. Bad Blood I mean. I don't know like you review this and you feel like.

"There were nine complaints filed against McKay. During his eleven year. Tenure some believed McKay would rely on using force too often during the course of performing his duties. I've reviewed the ones that I could find and we'll say in my humble garage opinion. The overwhelming majority of these quote use of force incidents were justified. But not all of them. Some are cause for debate one in particular. Was the arrest in pepper spraying of college students. Sarah Emberley the Dash Cam footage of this encounter is available online as well. This incident as mixed reviews some people believing that McKay unnecessarily escalated things and some believe that he was totally within his rights to spray the young woman and two thousand five. A fellow officer. This is Mark Taylor. Wrote a to the police chief and the letter says based on my previous knowledge of corporal. Mckay's demeanor this. Matter of fact attitude can come across as hostile and confrontational and he advised. Mckay to be less confrontational. Shall we get back to Ligo here? Captain Yeah Okay. So now. We're at January of two thousand three. This is when Lieko got himself a handgun. This was a high point. Forty five caliber gun. According to his family and friends he adored this gun shooting it into the air at parties and sleeping with it under his pillow but in January of two thousand seven. The gun disappeared from his room. Lieko knew who took it. It was his fifteen year. Old Cousin. Lieko suspected this because the same cousin took league goes playstation. The previous year Lieko confronted the teen cousin and things quickly got physical lieko apparently strangling the kid and threatening him during the course of this encounter to be clear. He didn't kill him he he just. I mean but it shows how out of control the situation got now. This method of theft investigation didn't work for Lieko and he was unable to get the gun back so he called the state. Police reported it stolen the officer dispatched by the state. He's got the teenage cousin to confess to taking the gun but the cousin also reported that Lieko had violently attacked him and this was witnessed by other family members. Lieko told the officer the he had just shook him a bit. The state trooper was required to file an assault. Complaint Against Ligo and a trial was scheduled for April Twenty Fourth of two thousand seven this would be league. Second trial for assaulting someone the first being officer. Mackay in two thousand and three at this trial. The cousin and Lee goes grandmother. Testified against Ligo and before the trial went down. Lieko ever the charmer threatened members of the young cousins family. Telling them that if the cousin and his grandma testified against him he would kill them. Despite all of this misbehavior Leo was only ordered to pay a two hundred and fifty dollar fine. After the conviction politico really started to unravel. Lieko told his boss at his job. This is at agw a supermarket then. He felt like he was being followed. He told others that the cops were out to get him. In the officer. Mackay was hunting him. He started to isolate himself and write about his quote last days. This was in his daily planner. His parents were still in Hawaii at this time but his extended family began to be concerned that Leo would commit suicide. But the paranoia start again wandering about the mental health of Ligo. I do want to point out to something that might add to this whole thing here. Captain being the let's say evaluation by others of Ligo? At this time there were several persons that reported that he was pretty much living by himself for months and months months leading up to what I would call the final confrontation and we know. At least it's my belief that if somebody is potentially suffering from something or going through something being alone for an extended period of time usually doesn't seem to help the situation makes it worse right so you just wonder what he was going through now. The book bad blood details memo that officer Bruce Mackay circulated to his fellow officers after. Leo's trial this mammal was titled Officer. Safety Notice and informed officers of Lecoq's conviction and states that lieko attempted to influence the witnesses at the trial. The other members of his family influence them to not show up for the trial. Telling them bad things would happen if they did. The witnesses feared for their safety. Lieko was known to own a gun had a drug history and had a history of resisting arrest the memo warned.

"I think Lieko. If you're not going to be cooperative I am going to call for backup in. We will arrest you I think that's also let the person know. Hey if you comply with me I'm GonNa let you go. You're not going to be in trouble but you keep this up it's GonNa end in our. You're going to be in jail so I think they're a couple of those things might calm the situation. Yeah I just wish ligo would have complied with McKay at some point because we have Lieko asking for another officer on the scene. Mckay complies with that so long then on top of give and take situation. I see one individual taking and not giving one like we said he goes from asking for assistance and then asking to be let go. And it's you know he and he's obviously being completely rude and disrespectful and then when you hear their arrest you know at some point mckays saying you know Leo grabbed his balls and the it's a it's resisting arrest. I mean once you get to that point. And maybe it's not A lawful arrest but once gets to that point and you start resisting. They have to do everything in their power to protect themselves at that point. You don't matter if your arm gets smashed. A little bit of they have to put your face in the ground a little bit. That's what's going to happen that and we have given these individuals the right to do that so once he starts yelling. All your molested me. You're breaking my arm my hurt neck. You know it's like you know. Grow Up kid you got you kept throwing gasoline on the fire you cut on poking the bear your eventually mess with the bull. You'RE GOING TO GET THE HORN. Well in if if anybody wants to scream brutality here Go for it but that wouldn't be the hill that I would wanna die on because from me. Viewing this. So let's go through this real quick when when the backup officers arrived they did approach Ligo. Who was now standing off camera. They physically seized him. He can be heard yelling for a while. The group you know. The group appears in the video frame. Just for a brief minute but it does take the three officers three officers to Russell. Lieko down to the ground. This is behind his car and now out of the view of the Dash Cam Lieko screaming the whole time. You heard some of that. He screamed that they're hurting. Him yelled over and over about his neck being broken by the cops which we know didn't happen while he was gone. I I gotTa hurt neck. You're hurting my neck. At one point he says they they broke my neck right because he's acting like idiots the problem. I have here with these officers. Is You know that you're on Cam. You know that this guy i. You're you're coming to the scene because one officer cannot handle this individual and now you have three of you just arrest him in front of the car so we can see it on camera. And I don't think that was an option though. I think they're reacting to this individual. Possibly not you you possibly. I mean I think in I think in a perfect world they they would very likely have wanted to have full view of the arrest itself. Because here here's what I see anybody that wants to scream brutality. Watch the video. Have Your own opinion. You don't have to believe me what I see here. Is that if these three officers wanted to beat the shit out of this kid. They could've they had the opportunity to do so and it does not appear to me from the information. I've reviewed. Did they did that? It looks to me like they simply made an arrest.

"It was a cold dark snowy night and late January. Two thousand. Three this in New Hampshire when Franconia police corporal. Bruce Mackay was driving his usual patrol route when he spotted an older model white Subaru in the parking lot at the entrance of the Fox Hill Park. Now special note here. This is an area that is surrounded by woods. The Subaru was parked engine off and lights off. It appeared to be abandoned. Mckay called in the license plate and learned that the car belonged to a Michelle Kenney became got out of his vehicle and approached the Subaru. He spotted a young man sitting inside with the driver's seat. Reclined all the way back. This was nineteen year old Lecoq Kenny. He told officer Mackay that he was just waiting for some friends to come back from a super bowl party then. Lieko started the engine and asked the officer for his name at this officer. Mccabe requested Ligo hand over his driver's license. And that is the last normal thing that happened in this confrontation which is viewable in its entirety. Thanks to the DASH CAM video and audio. Which is available online? Yeah there's three. Videos are three parts to this arrest. And there's another video. I will post all four of those videos on our website at true crime. Garage DOT COM. This is January. Twenty six two thousand and three at eight thirty nine PM. If the Dash Cam clock is correct and on the first video the audio starts at one minute and twelve seconds so when officer Mackay requested. Leo's license Lieko initially refused to hand it over. He wanted to know why the officer wanted. He became combative and belligerent. Almost immediately arguing with the officer challenging McKay's authority to take his license demanding that the officers flashlight not be shined in his face maintaining that he was allowed to sit in a public place undisturbed by police officer. Mackay finally got the license and took it back to his cruiser to run it when he saw the name on the licence officer. Mackay said quote. Oh I was wondering why you had such an attitude and quote clearly. The name on the licence was one familiar to the officer according to the book bad blood McCain knew this family by reputation. Let's listen to a couple of audio clips from this initial rest in two thousand.

"According to statistics reported to the FBI one hundred six law enforcement officers were killed in line of duty. Incidents in two thousand eighteen of these fifty. Five officers died as a result of felonious acts and fifty one officers died in accidents. Fbi Dot Gov sites nineteen different circumstances in which the fifty five officers were feloniously killed out. Those two officers were listed as killed while conducting traffic violation stops and two others that were killed were involved in vehicle pursuits so you can see thankfully this is a rare occurrence. This week. We take a hard look at a case that involves a traffic violation. Stop a vehicle pursuit in the murder of an officer but this in the line of duty incident resulted in two deaths and with much of the incident recorded via dash camera in the officers. Police vehicle. Why are we left with so many questions? The Dash Cam footage was later released on the Internet on YouTube. It has been viewed over one point four million times. This no doubt is an extremely tragic and horrific story however one would think this would be a simple open and shut case but this is just not so there is little doubt. The bad behavior and bad blood was the fuel for murder. But does this true story have a hero or was there more than one murder at this crime scene and was the fallen officer a good cop bad cop or possibly an evil man with a badge..

"Historical society. Where I grew up in Rome New York and skirt that you could work in a museum so not bone. I was hooked and I was the curator at McKinley. Press museum for years and I was promoted in January of Twenty nineteen to Executive Director. So had so much fun being able to get paid dairy every day. It's like a dream job for sure. He had typically prior to lick. Maybe two weeks ago I had never spent any time at all thinking about the nineteen eighteen pandemic but it is something that you spent some time thinking about. And this is you know. Sort of alternate called the influenza pandemic the Spanish flu various other names that it's given so tell me how that is something that you became interested in. Well I think I. I became interested in the flu because of the way that history forgot it so most historians who study American history. Notice that there's this kind of blip or there used to be the sort of empty period after nineteen eighteen where. We didn't even really talk about what happened. It was so horrible in so traumatic that we just skipped over it so there were some entries in Encyclopedias. That either didn't mention it at all or had one line to line and drastically kind of underestimated impact. So knowing all that I started to say what is you know. This is so interesting. Why did this happen? And then the more that I learned about the flu the more fascinated I became with it and I'm amused that now. Everyone is is talking about it but It used to be. I was the weird girl who was interested in the flu. Let's for an overview for people who have spent zero time thinking about the nineteen eighteen flu which is probably a lot of people. Can you sort of tell the the big picture of what it looked like? You know sort of how you mentioned. It was so devastating. What does that sort of look like? On a global scale it was the worst pandemic in human history so the estimates are between twenty and forty million people worldwide died but they estimate could be as high as one hundred million because we didn't keep track very well Things happened so quickly that weren't recorded but we also didn't have a test To definitively say whether it was the flu or not so the numbers are probably much greater And the fact remains that It was I think scarier than than it is now We didn't know exactly what it was. So doctors had theorized and scientists have theorized about a virus but it was so tiny. We didn't have microscopes yet. They could actually see it so we didn't know what we were fighting. We also did not have the technology that we have today. Now I know you know there's shortage of ventilators and everybody's worried about that and that's a very real concern but ventilators didn't exist in nineteen eighteen so the flu would quickly turn into a secondary bacterial pneumonia. And that's actually what would kill you and there was literally nothing that anyone could do about it And also another thing that I think is is scarier about the flu is the healthier. You were the more likely you were to die from it because as you were infected. You're a healthy immune system. Would overreact. Call the CYTOKINE storm and it would flood your system and eventually That would contribute to the kind of drowning in your long. That would happen why you died and so an immediate after effects that people don't talk about is it. A lot of children were orphaned. Hit people between twenty and forty and a really. I'm kind of a disproportionate number to a traditional regular flu season and it left people Young children without parents and so a lot of charities were started at that time with the specific goal of kind of placing these children and adopted family because they were orphaned. So I know you've spent some time thinking looking at what it looked like in stark county. You can you talk some about that? What would it looked like on the local level? Know how it affected people's lives locally speaking. You know it's no different than how it was happening nationally. You know everyone was overwhelmed there. The the cases were multiplying exponentially everyplace had quarantines in place locally here in Stark County schools closed. The door closed. Churches closed Much like what we're seeing now and what's an interesting aspect to me. Is that in studying this? You think wow you know what? What did that look like? What does that feel like? And now we're getting offensive that Somebody I work with because I do this program periodically at the museum and she said. You know I heard your program a couple years ago. I did it for the centennial and twenty eighteen and she said I I found myself wondering what did people feel like. And how what was it like to go through that? And now we know It's a very scary time in nineteen eighteen just like today. It was the same kind of you know. Our bodies had never seen this before so it was going to spread very quickly and there wasn't a whole lot we can do about it except for stay away from each other. Which is what they tried to do in nineteen eighteen as well and of course they didn't have the Internet they couldn't you know record podcast and talk to people over zoo. What what where people sort of doing to pass the time while they were stuck at home you know. We don't have a whole lot of information about that. But I will say that I feel like people were better equipped to deal with it then. we didn't have quite this fast pace of life so. I think that being in your home was maybe not as drastic of a change as it is for but I will also say that the technology that we have today allow us to connect with each other in a way that people could not do in nineteen eighteen so they were extremely isolated. Which I think is a little bit in some ways more difficult but in other ways they were a little bit more used to it just the the knowledge that life was not as quick as it is today so. I'm sure people do the same thing that we're doing now. You know playing games with their kids and and playing music Then it would have been mostly live. You know playing piano and singing and things like that But just the same types of things that that. We're trying to do just to pass the hours until this is all over. This also intersected a timeline with world war one knows what sort of affected the presence of the war have in the way the virus was spread or the way people could could work on methods to to counteract it spread. Sir. Yeah we're we're one was raging in nineteen eighteen and there were troop movements across the globe so that contributed to spread A lot of historians believe however because of the highly contagious nature of that particular strain that it would have spread the globe anyway. But we're one definitely help do that. Quicker and one of the reasons. Is We take a bunch of people from all over the country and we we train them in a central location and they've brought the flu with them and then they ship overseas in very crowded Ships transport ships. They get over to the war and it's it's a very stressful environment. Know people aren't very well fed at that time and so it's just everyone is so susceptible And then if anybody came home I leave you know the reverse happened. They took it from the army or the navy and they brought it to their town so It certainly did accelerate what was going on but a lot of people believe that it it. It can't be blamed entirely that this pandemic would have happened anyway. Do we know anything about how or why the PINTA stopped? Are there any lessons? They're about when or how we might get through all of this. Yeah everyone wants to know about that right. So there were three waves of the nineteen eighteen flu. It went into nineteen nineteen so the first wave happened in the spring of nineteen eighteen. That was not deadly but people should have paid attention to it because it was so contagious So what happens with a lot of viruses? They strive in cold air and so when it becomes warm and Humid. A lot of viruses have seasonality. We don't know about Corona virus this particular one How whether it's going to affect it. We hope it has so the h one n one flu which is the nineteen. Eighteen flu did have season and it sort of goes it doesn't disappear but it becomes what most people dismiss as a summer cold. You know. It's probably a flu. You don't get tested for. It doesn't really affect you all that much. You get better quickly so that happened in nineteen eighteen when it came back in nineteen eighteen in the fall. That's the second way that's the deadly wave. There was another third wave in spring of Nineteen nineteen which was a lot less intense but one of the reasons that people think that it sort of ended and this is one of my favorite things about viruses. So it's not an viruses best interest to kill all of its hosts so it mutates so that it does not do that it. It needs us in order to reproduce. It can't reproduce on its own so it needs to go into our system invade ourselves comet year ourselves to replicate itself and then pass it on to other people so if it kills everybody it doesn't have the opportunity to do that so that's one of the reasons that they think that it might have stopped The other reason is that you know we get what's called herd immunity. We'd like to do that artificially through vaccine so today vaccine. You know everybody doesn't have to get the vaccine for it to be effective as a whole in the community but the same thing can happen if people get the influenza virus or whatever it is and then they have a muted. He's from it so they can't get it again so it stops some of that spread so the truth is we really don't know why the nineteen eighteen flu stopped. It's it's kind of one of scientists mysteries but those are some of the theory too bad we don't know exactly why and so some of what we know about the nineteen eighteen flu we actually know by using modern science People were actually looking at it. Much leader keep talk. Some about those Those efforts to sort of learn more about it in more recent times. Yeah it's it's such a fascinating. It's one of those like truth stranger than fiction kind of the stories So after the pandemic happened we sort of put it away and we didn't really think our talk about it and it wasn't until the nineteen thirties at a microscope was invented that we could even see the flu. So now we could see the actual virus what it looked like and we could sort of figure out you know how it spreads and those kinds of things but what we couldn't do is sequence. You know the the genetic the genetic material of the influence a nineteen eighteen influences so it wouldn't be until the nineteen fifties when somebody thought. Hey you know. Maybe we need to go back to some of those victims and find that that tiny little influenza cell and study it and so the man's name was Johann Holton and he came up with the idea after overhearing a conversation about it to go to Alaska find victims from Nineteen Eighteen. Whose BODIES WERE BURIED IN PERMAFROST. Which would mean they had been frozen since nineteen eighteen and exhume. Those bodies take some samples from their lungs and then steady it and eventually he was able to do that. He got his samples One of the scary part about it was that he flew a commercial flight from Alaska back to his home With the live virus oak that virus but with the potential of kind of unleashing. It again as I thought. Which of course didn't happen. And he admitted later that he might have been more concerned about that Maybe should have been so. He did a lot of work trying to revive it. He couldn't grow it in eggs. He couldn't get a ferret sick. You really kind of hit it that end so in the nineteen nineties. He started to read about another scientist. Who was looking at this type of thing. And he realized that the technology had now caught up to what he was trying to do in the fifties so he contacted that scientists and together they worked on getting Some new samples from the permafrost bodies in order to sequence that virus and so it wasn't until the nineteen nineties that we could unlock all of those secrets from the nineteen eighteen. Flu Epidemic. Crazy CRAZY..

NBA championship odds: Lakers still lead pack despite quiet trade deadline; Clippers improve chances
"Did you make of the two teams? How do you feel about them currently? Wow Oh well I I I I stand by. I think the clippers have long time then the favorites. I think the way that the Lakers have played This season and how they've consistently consistently performed Dwight Howard has been a pleasant surprise. I think Kyle Kuzma with the injury to start off the season. He he hasn't really gun the things that they would like. These are very good contributor. But I think that the clippers with all the management and and Paul George Missing Time and some Injuries and you look at where they are there. Second Right now and for me. I think that the clippers are the best team right are they. Are the team that come at at the end of the day you're going to have to go through in order to try and win a championship. Even though the Lakers have the best record and it looks like the Lakers are GonNa have home court At at this point in time if it were to start today I still feel like you know the clippers. The team that you're GONNA have to be in order to win the whole thing Richard. How all surprising that? The rockets decided to go full monty. There Bison not only are we gonNA run small lineups. We won't even carry a gun on the roster who would allow us to run any sort of other type lineups. Well it's a at this point in time. If you look at Dantonio you look at Dell Maury winter. We've we've had they not gone all in on whatever they believe right. What do they have to lose? They've been criticized up and down and make pulled off some pretty impressive trade getting in Chris. Paul getting in Russell Westbrook. They've done some really really good things to pair With with James Harden James Harden continuingly improved his offense of game. But it's like I'm not surprised anymore. It's like they look at their team. And they're like the way we're structured right now. We're probably up for a first or second round loss What can we do to really shocked at? How can we try and change things up? And they made them moved. ooh They believed that adding Covington and giving up Cappella and they just WanNa go all small ball kind of like what you would see from the Golden State Warriors for for a time So I'm not surprised by it. I think that you know everyone out. There is fighting for their job. I think Daryl Morey I think I think You look at Dan Tony think these guys are low key fighting for their jobs so if they know that first or second round loss possibly could be the end to their tenure. So why not try and go all whatever you believe. Richard Jefferson hanging out with this year. Makes you check them out today. Five o'clock Indiana Toronto. ESPN mean is also in studio with us as well by the way. You're listening to Los Angeles. So Richard Let me ask you this about what Brian said yesterday specifically in regards to that game like he he kind of talked about their lack of focus on defense. Where do you think the Lakers can get better on defense? Can they do it. Internally you have again you have some talented players and I. I always proceed very cautiously when you have a game like that and everyone wants to run and talk about it and break it down like look Russell. Westbrook had a great great game. Houston shot the ball extremely well if you send shot the ball like that against anybody on any given night. They're going to win that game Even Dan Tony said in his interview. He's like hey I understand what we're doing is different It all has to do with whether or not these guys will buy in and tonight was a big step that they would have gone out and got him blasted in a D had forty five right an twenty six against them. Everybody in that Houston Rocket Locker. Room would be questioning. What's what's going on? They would be getting murdered by the media. It would be going crazy but they were fortunate to get that win in La which very hard place to play and now. Everyone's questioning the Lakers. Well look I believe this. I believe that the Lakers are great regular season team. I think that last night they should've stayed with the White Howard. You can't Anthony Davis if there's a difference between being like having your numbers be dominant and actually being dominant and physically dominant. Anthony Davis just. Wasn't that Anthony. Davis Davis is not an again. I hate to talk about. What player isn't because he is a million great in every anybody would want them on their team but he's not a guy that just going to low post blocks doc band you up and then go and shoot a five-foot Hook shot and don't because he worked position that's why he runs the floor so well so he can get that early early post up in a great position and it's harder to guard but in the postseason when it becomes half court basketball? That's what the Houston Rockets are depending on when it becomes a half half halfcourt basketball game and they can spread it out and just have Russell James go to work and kick it out to more shooters so everyone had their theory. It's just a matter of WHO's going to be able to impose their will Richard One of the things that That's happening for the Lakers. This year is that when Lebron plays the offense is is tremendous right there. They're one of the best offensive teams out there. But when he doesn't play when he's not on the floor I should say that offense becomes very anemic even when Anthony Davis was an. MVP candidate in his own right is on the floor. And it reminded me of the years in In Cleveland the three years that Love Irving and and Lebron were together. When Lebron didn't play that team wasn't just not a great team not wasn't just a below five hundred they were awful and given that you've been on the inside you've been on a Lebron James Team? Can you explain to me how that is. How talented players? Once you remove this one guy turned into a bad basketball team. I think it's it's style of play. It's continuity I think that's something that it's it's weird because Lebron James is always you typically been healthy. She's always played in seventy five or more games except for last year due to the groin injury. So it's like this is the guy that each up eighty ninety percent of like court time. So you're what what you're really referencing is like non-core time and even then comes the postseason. This is a man that's going to go from playing thirty seven minutes a night thirty eight. He's going to go up to like forty three forty four minutes a night. 'cause there's no bags and there's no practices for most of his energies just using games. So what you're really talking about is how do you play Good Basketball for eight to ten minutes in it for twelve minutes and that can be tough to find that continuity. It's tough because it's such a small sample size right and yes it's a small. It's a large sample size is when you look at how often it happens. But it's very very difficult for coaches to be like how we're GONNA play for this ten to twelve minutes when the broncos out of the game because when he's in the game everything's everything's perfect. Everything's runs great room and I think that's the challenge. The coaches have a lot of people are talking about Darren. Collison coming in and then interrogating him bats. That's the challenge and it's and it's been a long time. The bron James Challenge is how do we play that 'cause they had with Kyrie Kyrie is a great score but it's like when Bronco go out of the game game that was an opportunity for Kyrie to really explore and really play his game and get his rhythm will Kyrie's rhythm might not necessarily be the rhythm for the the other guys on the court and I thought knock on Kyrie. If just like broad had the ball handed Kyrie was basically a two guard. Then Kai Bronco Ga.. The game in Cairo would become the point guard. But this was an opportunity to get going scoring and maybe throw the ball into Kevin Love. which when you had the surrounding guys there wasn't an offense? There wasn't a continuity beauty for us to play through so there's good still Lebron and there's challenges to Lebron. I wouldn't even call that bad but I think this final stretch is going to be key but understand. He's going to play more minutes in the postseason. So you can't really say like hey we need to figure out what we're GONNA do when he's out of the game because that's just realistically he's going to be in the game Ormeau. Richard Jefferson with this year on the Sodano show on ESPN. This actually leads perfectly into my next question. This is good chemistry right here. These three guys. So Rondo they have Rondo. Problem is a net negative player. He's been that for seven seasons now but to a means point it falls off a cliff. He's usually usually the guy that has to lead that second unit. I don't think they can afford to play him anymore. To be honest with you what do you do if you do agree with me. What do you do with Ronda how do you how do you manage? Rondo at this point Well I I think there's there's two components there's an on the court and then there's a locker room right. There's a locker component and it's like a like say what you want about Rondo. He's a very dynamic guy on and off the court so you WanNa make sure that Rondo understands what your is your team goals are. I think Rondo is in a very different space. And he was years and years ago whether it was in Dallas when I played with them or leaving Boston I think Rondos one of those guys that in this moment right here they need to find. I I think that's Darren Collison being. It's so big the need to find one more guy that can compliment that second unit And so yes do but you gotta look at what can you do. He's a net negative guy adding Rondo very very rare. But no one really questions Kenney still play is he's still a contributor when you're just looking at the second unit and when I tell you that the six years prior that's one thing this year I I mentioned it early.
"kenney" Discussed on Front Burner
"Hey you mentioned before that this government is moving fast and breaking things on a couple of different fronts. And so what are they doing. They introduced their budget a few days after the election late in with cuts and things they want to change right I know he's wiped out like two thousand public sector jobs right over over the next five five years something like that government Alberta jobs public sector it could be much larger. They're cutting post secondary education by a whole lot. They've cut funding for school boards. Words are who are trying to keep up with still rapid enrollment growth and you mentioned before he's also socially conservative although I remember when he was campaigning he promised to bring in legislation on abortion. But I understand there's now some legislation that kind of skirts around I promise now right. There is a private member's bill by a former Federal Kenny. The aid not Bill Kenny's himself but one that he may well agree with. We don't know yet that gives a whole bunch of safeguards to quote unquote conscience rights for physicians. It's basically protecting them from having to conduct services or a for for services they don't agree with such as emotion contraception medically assisted dying perhaps Some services for transgender individuals. The bill was introduced by Dan. Williams and elected Mla with Alberta is United Conservative Party he says existing protections that give medical professionals the right to opt out of services. They don't believe in. Don't go far enough. Because healthcare providers are required wired to make referrals. These are very controversial bills. I curious to get your perspective on how Albertans are reacting to this. Because you know the bottom line of Kennedy's campaign wasn't any of this right. It was jobs pipelines the economy. So is that what Alberta is getting here with these measures no but I think there's still a lot of goodwill toward Kenyan lot of relief that Rachel Notley who was not popular was gone. And we have somebody who is fighting. I'm for jobs. Biting more aggressively for Pipelines You know punching as much as they can toward Ottawa. A lot of what Jason Kenney seems to be banking on is what he was banking. On in the election that kamikaze matter there was an rcmp. Investigation to Kenny's own campaign during DEA during the election and when I would ask conservatives. How they're sweating this? They said it's fine people. Don't care people all about is jobs pipeline and and Trudeau and we're going to focus focus on those issues and people won't mind the other things that come up the other Barbs attacks on his social conservatism. Can you will get reelected. We'll forget all about this and Info wife will get on under. The EP. Couldn't have survived another four years. We're in trouble now. I'm hoping he's going to bring the jobs back or willing to overlook all the rest of it and what is the status of that investigation. Now that is not being touched by the Election Commission matter. That is into voter fraud issues. which seemed to be out of the purview? or at least Above the purview. At this point of the election commissioner there be investigated by the RCMP. And now there is an out of province prosecutor later Handling this file. So it's out of the government's hands.
"kenney" Discussed on Front Burner
"Jason Hello Hello thanks for coming back. I feel like we just got to talk to you so lucky. F How burqas getting busy in the news for whatever reason lately. Oh Oh you guys are in high demand so look this. Bill isn't law yet. It's been passed but It has to get royal. Assent as I understand it. But if if it does get royal assent Lauren. Gibson's job as Alberta's election commissioner disappears and so can you tell me exactly what Gibson was investigating gating. Sure so Gibson was actually a fairly new had a new job elections commissioner. It used to be election. Alberta was investigating wrongdoing undoing under the Elections Act and Alberto but was not very effective very few powers very little activity DP created this a bigger office independent dependent office and appointed somebody who was a former elections Alberta chief electoral officer which who'd been fired by the government so there was already bad led to start with but here comes in learn Gibson and he's very dog it. He was finding a lot of people for excessive over the CAP contributions I was racking up tens of thousands of dollars in fines to both sides and use EP but one of the big things he was doing and living two hundred thousand dollars of fines lines was against one of Kenny's leadership rivals in the two thousand seventeen United Conservative leadership race Jeff Calloway who had concocted. It seems some very shady scheme regarding the financing of his campaign basically using Straw donors excessive corporate donations which are banned it like essentially this corporation was donating to his campaign through individuals. But the money wasn't actually coming from them. That's right one. Big Donor. Cut a sixty thousand dollar corporate for check and it and that money was divided up to make it look legal and Calloway's also known as the kamikaze candidate right. This is something that we've covered on this podcast before. That's the thing if you if you'd seen the talking to you over the air you would have seen US money. Talk about him. As a rival there was always allegations and suspicion. That case in Kenny's team was putting him up just to undercut on. Well rose leader Brian Gene and sure enough right before the general election started. The media got a hold trove of documents confirming their emails emails between the campaigns confirming when he would resign how to act sharing means a cache of documents leaked to the show senior. Kenny campaign staffers. I routinely contacted calloway staffers. They offered strategic directive speeches and opposition research for callaway to attack. Brian Gene. All all the while Calloway plan to drop out of the race and throw his support behind Kenny. But there have been denials right from Jason Kenny. And certainly calloway about this. They say were just talking about this. We're just having discussions campaigns discuss policy and strategy among each other you know as friendly rivals in the past. They don't don't acknowledged that this was a sham candidate But it's not what the Ethics Commissioner was investigating and we should be clear that Jason Kenny's party has not been implicated into into this whole financial investigation. Right that's right. It's just a callaway campaigners. There was stuff that Jason Kenney leadership campaign was doing like soliciting certain types types of donations. That is being investigated by the elections. Commissioner or at least has been until dot dot dot. Okay so you know I think that the segues pretty well into my next question question. Of course Kenny win. Won The premiership with a very strong majority in Alberta he brags about it. That was a really tough campaign. But I was gratified. We ended up with the thirty five percent of the popular vote. The largest number of votes ever cast for Party now Berta electoral history the highest popular vote in in a couple of decades at least and now the UCLA has three quarters of the seat so they pushed this bill through bill. Twenty two like. Why do they want to do that? Well there's the defacto reason and the official official reason the de facto reason is they don't like this ethics commissioner. They love to sideline him and with this majority they can do this in within an omnibus. I'm the boss Bill. One hundred and seventy two page bill. that they introduced on Monday and have passed on Thursday. Well that is quick. That is quick the only time you normally see them do that is for emergency legislation to say for us. You know striking rail workers postal workers back to the job. It's unusual to see especially an omnibus complex bill with that does many other things pushed through the legislature before it can be really get much public. Scrutiny he is astonishing. Why is Jason Kenney saying they WANNA get rid of this position they WANNA get rid of this guy? It's worth noting. This conveniently happened on a week. Where Jason Kenney was actually out of the country he's in Houston Texas on a trade mission but this is a government bill so his prints are all over this? The the official reason is that this is part of deficit reduction in good proper management other provinces. And this is true. Don't have an independent body as elections commissioner. That's is an an organization. Within their own elections branch like elections Newfoundland et CETERA. And the other point is that this could save money. This will say two hundred thousand dollars a year ear. Jason Kenny and talk with us before is aggressively trying to curb. Alberta's deficit okay. He's positioning this as a cost. Saving Measure Asia. I if this bill gets Royal Gibson loses his job is there a scenario in which he could continue the investigations that he's been doing. That's the other argument that the Kenny Conservatives are making this doesn't actually necessarily kill investigations or killing investigative function it will now fold into the Election Alberta Office. They say that the electoral officer could still higher back. Mr Gibson to to do this job doesn't necessarily kill the investigations. The House Speaker. This is a prime example of the official opposition. overplaying their hand yet again. Nobody has fired a law enforcement agency Mr Speaker that is completely completely and utterly ridiculous The election Mr Office in position remains Just now consolidated within the recommendation of the current Chief Election Commissioner election commissioners the province of Berta to another province consolidates the process save taxpayers upwards of a million dollars Mr Speaker it protects all current turn investigations investigations activities that their argument. That maybe he won't know he might not. This sends a clear message to any officer officer legislature. That this use EP majority is watching you and you may not have your dog much longer. If you're pursuing things pushing the envelope to aggressively over the reality is that under a new management. The process is very likely to change in the same way that had donald trump had the Chutzpah to a fire. Fire Robert Mueller. The Special Prosecutor Special Prosecution and that report still would have been investigated and still would have been pursued but with a different leader. You get a different approach. Maybe this wouldn't be deemed as a priority like it is. It's a very unusual rather contemptuous frankly of the notion of accountability within a democracy. But Jason Kenney feels he can get away with this. Do you think Jason Kenney knows what he's doing here that the optics. This could be quite bad again again. This is his risk calculation that he knows the optics about. He's a guy who's very aware of optics. Gosh he's somebody who bombed around the province for three years in a blue blue pickup truck and anybody who knows anything about him from. Ottawa knows that that is not his inherent style but he knows the positives of good image. He knows that this is burning political the capital that this will not be a popular thing. This will be something that is harsher receive certainly by critics perhaps by some soft Tory supporters. But he thinks he has so much goodwill he can burn through this let. Let's talk about the opposition here critics of the Bill Rachel Notley as we heard at the beginning of the show. She is furious about this. Hey she is going all all out on this and they've been hitting the panic button on a few measures measures that Jason Kenney is doing as he moves fast and break things but this is perhaps the most urgent they've they've They've reacted and what are they doing to try and thwart this she. She held that stunt of being thrown out of the legislature. They they've written to the Ethics Commissioner Detroit flags some of the conflict of interest. Well maybe they could delay this bill. The Ethics Commissioner wrote back and said that's not something I'm normally do. She even went to the step as far as writing to the left handed governor who would provide royal assent urging lefthanded governor not to sign this. Bill we've not heard anything back yet I I would be happy to meet with her to discuss it more detail. But we'd made our cases as respectfully as as we can gots not the way government works that's a bit Kuku the royal delegate. The Queen's representative is not offer her own opinion of the and the quality of a bill. If our democracy were otherwise wouldn't have much of a democracy that that was a real a real blind lob pass from this from the opposition to call it a hail. Mary may confer Religious Dignity Fair.

Ask all just connect on that level yeah looking for the innocent snitch of us. That's another great lesson from the course. Nira calls yeah if you're interested in reading it because it's interesting book <hes> first time i tried to read it made no sense in such that sound like crazy nonsense you know like somebody who's making too much acid back in nineteen sixty nine but it if you look at it found later i started about the thirteenth chapter in you start reading of thirteen chapter in makes a made so much sense to me then i read around and read it to the end of the started yet to get this first interesting now and now i understood the first few chapters but if you start a chapter one it doesn't make any sense so just a all right good good uh-huh so i ask you one of my favorite questions okay only because i love the answer so much so if you could meet anyone i live to help you with your continued journey. Who would it be how which is so many so many they'd gone on before <hes> obvious achieves. This is the first number one inspiration. I try to file all of his teaching night. I studied the scriptures and everything to join trying to what he actually gone. <hes> in its time all the stuff that sarah you gotta find it psych parole in the field that you gotta find you know. My dad was a jesuit brother naffaroa jet for eight years <hes> i grew absurd. My dad taught in jesuit university city okay. I kinda grew up in a jesuit university so so i i my dad was a yellow yeah. I mean in my eyes as he studied scripture new studied it for eight years <hes> seminary in so we would have deep philosophical conversations is one of the things i missed most about him and my dad had his issues but he was just. I loved are powerful. He gave great hugs and i loved my. I love my deep. Theologian plugin talks a yeah. I used to have those two in my dad and i miss them. Though yeah that here i could get together for him. Him and jesus is this buddha <hes>. Let's see saint francis martin luther king junior <hes> so many that that taught about healing about love you know <hes> and <hes> i love the zen stories but i can't say one person. You know like galleon you don't have you heard in coen's <hes> before they're japanese version of buddhism. They have these little teeny sayings like those stories. <hes> we heard the sound of one hand clapping thrown around a lot that comes from an old elia is a story yeah <hes> <hes> there was a a master sitting on a hillside in he was facing the full moon was facing east in the fool moon was rising and he was watching it as her meditating in being sort of useful with blood in a student comes running up to them and says master master master. Please please. He's helped me out. I'm so confused now in mestizo. What is it what what's bothering you you so. Could you please show me the moon. I don't know what the moon is and i was was in the marketplace today. Everybody was talking about the moon full moon this the philadelphia and i just didn't know what it was. Please show me the move. The master <unk> a few few words he simply raised his finger pointed to the move which was by the way behind the student center was facing faster and he saw he plays the moon and the student looked up all he saw was the masters finger pointed in the in the moonlight from that moment on on he believed that the truth or the moon was his master's finger from there on love. That story is certain perspective. Yeah we oftentimes we oftentimes confused the finger that points to the truth truth itself. You know you are back. As to how he had to do was turnaround. He would see the moon but instead he was so focused on his master being served source source of truth that he thought it was the finger pointed pointed to write <unk> love that they that all sense of you have to get rid of a radical <unk> then <hes> in order to find like mentor to find that which is pointing to all the great teachers. They're pointing meaning to the truth. They were not the truth and their followers get so confused. They make them the truth. In so many bad things follow from that right right happened great teacher. Socrates is another one unloved certain some talk with yeah so that's a great lead in because my next question question is that there's any truths or facts you wanna clarify for listeners. Oh god there's there's there's so many one is that these children are now good where people have been so abused. They can't change. It's a personal a personal thing. One thing i have the <hes> the father <hes> near the end of the first spoke some way home. I have the father meeting with the case manager from gay finisher from zero to five <unk> adaptive father and they confront each other in the end. Eh this discussion in titus talking about healing in the manager says can you ever really heal children to the ever really heal and he says well <hes> yes. They heal it. My side is and he'll. I know that but they're still scarves you. Don't heal scars fade away and the less you pay attention to them. The more they fade away 'cause they're just scars. You know <hes> but the healing has already taken place you know the healing is is is is there and yet. There may be things that we still have to work on. I guess and also <hes> the truth the truth is that <hes> <hes> these kids oftentimes <hes> <hes> are seen as aggressive and angry degree and <hes> on the ingraham should say that there seem violent. You know they seem seem <hes> like bad kids and they're just china. They're not what they're more like. What i call. Yes means no kids because the app is set. They tend to have the opposite to reaction normal things you know like in school. Normally we just correct we make corrections on kids papers in order that they learned from it but does crashes those red lines on a kid who's going through this kind of a thing traumatized. You know oftentimes see them as a positive thing. They really can't stand to have that judgment. Life's on them so a lot of times. They do savoy turning things in any way. I just can't stand the thing that we're trying to do to help them. You know and it goes back to that shame thing <hes> with for instance when my son i came to us if we were saying i a hey what did you got that piece of paper where pick that up and throw it away. Please ooh could start a three hour explosive violent reactive. Thanks for taking my call. <hes> elissa called <hes> <hes> when pe- spoiled child throws temper tantrum. It's not a temper tantrum but oftentimes against labeled that so that's one of those ideas i loved to get rid of and <hes> they go on for hours in sydney that if you could rephrase he said that question to say learns to teach myself to say hey do me a favor impact that piece of paper up throw it away no problem but if i said like hey would you do that. For why did you throw it. You know what i made him guilty reporting when you focus to them in their behavior as wrong it is such a hair trigger they immediately go into into survival into fight flight reaction the duck out in <hes> in <hes> acis <hes> you got to kind of learn that understanding the perception from their point of view. You say things differently just to see so. They don't have these short-circuited times that they don't. You know oftentimes with those explosives. They don't remember the next day what happened. It's almost like an a electrical seizure. Almost the overcomes them you know <hes> in that survival mode yeah yeah and then remember necessarily everything they said or again the time before it's just all sort of the feeling of did something wrong yan you know but anyways there's there's so many things i'd i'd like to to people to understand the lazy eye. Let's get rid of the word lazy <hes>. I just can't stand that word because it doesn't if there's so many things that are answers but not solutions right so he's lazy okay so he's got a personality that does not do anything. What can you do with that. Nothing really it's it's a solution but unanswered the problem like a._d._h._d. Oftentimes a solution used as but not an an answer an n._c. And i go too lazy is it because he is is is a person afraid to fail afraid of speed. What what's the underlying factor here. That's it. That's a mincing when you get to that level then. There's some you can do about it right. Exactly you know there's something you can even extreme cases where his bit so a sad. You can just say i'm not going to great yourself. You know you can put it in a grade book. Whatever you want to put it but i'm not gonna put anything on your papers at all. You know make a couple points in comments that set you know you just do what is necessary for that child to learn. You know you gotta get rid of the obstacles. That's one thing we're i think we can be really good at is helping a child by getting rid of the obstacles. We can't crawl in their head it and make the right connections for mccain crawling their heads in. Tell them how to think about things. You know we can do a couple of things we could set the environment that means it's also the emotional environment in our relationship. We set it up in a way that they feel safe. <hes> in a dope you'll they're going to be judged or as judgment in attack the same thing to them right. It feels the same way. You may say well. You know. It's i before he before. I feel like you're attacking their their their existence. It's really almost it's all that existential for them. You know yeah <hes> you just gotta understand from their point of view. What works in you know. That's our job as the teacher. That's our job is appearance really that that we can do and i think the bottom line through all of it. What i'm hearing is just compassion. Oh number number one yeah yeah. I think with healing will try to be a help. You have to be <hes> you have to love but now again especially allowed a real sort of the greeks used to call a gothi love you no more spiritual love that i called eagle lightbulb because it seems kind of strange and you know far out there you know but you get a sense of you know. I think it's a knife referred to it is just you know like sold assault or light to light. You know these were all these beings of light <hes> yes we can just connect one another's light <hes> because the dark darkness is the stuff of the ego like you talked about where the light is the stuff of the soul and yeah if we can just learn to connect that way the neces- i mean that's what they call me in the miracles they call it holy incident in it took me ten years so i'm i ten years as a psychologist. I thought my jobless solve everybody's problems ended. It's just so far from the truth you just causing trouble when you when you trying to to help somebody else telling them how to solve it. You're just making it worse. You know instead connection like you said that connection of me to you in in that percents of innocence love you know that there's a pure sense of being being set alight to like that's it. I mean that is the healing moment that is that eddie is what heals people. You don't have to say okay well. It's because this happened or because you kill <unk> do this. Next time is going to give them the to do list right yet. Yeah the the those can come later. Those can be suggestions or whatever but at the the point was real helium. Is that person person yeah.

"We feel. Kenney said it perfectly Kenney said, we're an older ban. But we're not jaded were still hungry, and we still love to play together. And I think it's because of that, you know, time apart and the desire to to get to play again. And like, I said everytime with Texas. I would play with them where I would fly down and play benefits a lot throughout the years. I haven't made a record with them. But I found that it was just too hard to keep it going because I didn't want to work as much as they wanted to work when I was driving my kids to school, you know, wanted to be there. So yet now it's just it's it's exciting time because everybody's so grateful that we can play together. And that we haven't run out of ideas, every time we get together. We, you know, we improvise eight nine ten songs. I'm not saying they're all good. But that we, but we have the ability to do that. And we love it. We love each other. We have a sense of humor that we've. Developed throughout the years that's special to us. Yeah. Can I just say I that? I really appreciate how clear you are about your decision to take time away at least from being a touring musician in order to raise a family because they think there are so many conflicting messages that women get about what you're supposed to do. Like you're supposed to put your career. I know you're supposed to put your family. I know you're supposed to be able to figure it out and have it all, and I just think it's I think it's very wonderful to be as clear as you are. And I'm wondering if there was a time when that felt like fraught decision for you, or has it always been as clear in your mind as you're speaking of it now completely clear, I knew exactly what I wanted. When I was a little girl about that. And I thought you know, I again, I I wanted to have a career I, and I did that and it to be honest with you it was a little bit too much too soon. I was almost embarrassed by the amount of fame that we had because I felt I had. Earned it yet? I felt that there were a lot of other musicians who were much more deserving at that time and that and they were better musicians, and we just slipped in and we got all this attention. And I just thought and I thought that people acted funny around me then after that too. And so I thought we'll I can step away from this easily because it just feels too weird..

"It's so okay. When did. National lampoon start. Oh shit. Well, the the national lampoon is based off of the Harvard lampoon has been going. It's the longest humor publication in American history. Right. It's going since eighteen seventy six Conan wrote for it. Probably did Conan O'Brien wrote for it did. Yeah. Oh, wow. It's weird. Like, the whole Simpson's was staffed with Harvard lampoon people for a long time. Okay. You're right. I was thinking because I was watching this documentary, and they really underplayed that not a lot of stars come out. But I think they were referring to before this guy starting this whole okay face because it was such a like the Harvard lampoon was just such a boring like magazine that the college put out for like very well to do kids. You know what I mean? Like, yeah. It was just like puns and limericks goofy bad dumb shit for like, really. Yeah. It was like literally no one was in the club. Like, they had a nice base inside of what they it. Like a castle was a nice building. But it was like nobody was cool was doing it or having any fun with it. It had been like a literary thing that like John Updike had been apart. Like way way back. But at that point it was like for kind of like the nerds of Harvard. Enter in Doug Kenney and Henry beard, and there's a couple other people like around this time and Harvard that like all become friends and I'll start hanging out. And it's funny because it's like, I don't like you hear like Harvard, and you're like, well, everyone's like privileged. Yeah. This is maybe like harder to. Yeah. Yeah. You're right everyone who like that's the thing. Like comedy writers. Always as that. Like everybody who worked on the Simpsons like went through Harvard, and that's true at the beginning. At least it's just the way of all that prep school like it's not prep school. Sorry. Just like Ivy league colleges. Have this very weird way of being like, okay? You a job like you were my frat brother like. Yeah. So it's almost like, no wonder. Yeah. I mean, it also makes sense. If you are if you sell a show or you get a job, you try to get your friends jobs. Yeah. And it's like, yeah. It ends up. Not being a good thing. If it just works that much, and then it just ends up being a bunch of fucking. Yeah. Straight white dudes from the same part of the country. Becomes that? Basically. Yeah. When they start the national lampoon. They definitely don't have like a lot of they have no black riders or anybody who's a minority and they have like two female writers. But anyway, so that's kind of the point is like, yeah. This was when this is in the seventies. Okay. Yeah. This is like I believe at about nineteen seventy when. Yeah. When all the shit's kicking off where they meet they decide to make it funny like the Harvard lampoon. Okay. And I've it's funny. Like, my brother like he worked at like, his UVA newspaper, and like I can see the vibe of people sometimes being let's try something totally different like, a really boring publication, and like the school just puts it out like let's have fun with it. Yeah. Who cares college? Who cares? It's college and the dynamic of Doug Kenney and Henry beard is that like Doug Kenney is like a kid from the midwest. He's from Ohio.
