"My name is part of the tumor. I'm a poet from Ireland and when I grow up learn poetry in Irish English off by heart every week from the age of five but when I was eleven I found myself taking up a piece of paper and realizing that I wanted to write a poem about things couldn't exist but still do exist and poetry opened the door for me to speak about everything that I can see and everything that I can feel to put it. All onto a piece of paper commanders. Poin Book of Genesis. Suppose there was a book for only the word let from WHO's clipped sound. All things began fair and firmament feather the first whale and suppose we could scroll through its pages every day to find an pronounce. Let meant only for US. We would stumble through the streets with open. Books is crossed from too much rating. We would speak and auto rhyme the world would echo itself and still. We'd continue in rounds saying let and let and let until even silent dreams had been allowed for the audacity of a person who would summarize an entire book of the Bible in one word. Let what is the let that could be just for me. Let me find. It speaks of finding something deepens as yourself that will allow you to be your very own self and find ways in which you can flourish in the person who you are not the person perhaps who are the people tell you. You should be but the person who you are years ago. I think I was twenty one twenty two. I can probably remember. It was the summer. Nineteen ninety seven so I was soon to be twenty two and I was just in the process of coming out to myself really and late at night. I was able to sleep said about two in the morning. I just got out of bed and walked about three miles to the ocean. There was living in Dublin and I walked there and walked out to the edge and I was actually under a statue of Mary. It was a big statue of Mary out by this particular beach and just am shouted out you know. Are there any other people like me around? And I was so lonely so desperate and fell so completely alone and so under her shouting out for some kind of solidarity some kind of companionship and that can feel so lonely and I think Kai Miller is a gay mom and so certainly reading his poems. I thought I know these stories and I can go back into these stories and see them as something through which can view the human condition rather than seeing them as a lens through which I have to castigate my own life. As I'm looking at this point I have looked this point so often and I often land on a different word when I look at this one but I'm struck in the very first word suppose and that is a beautiful word of imagination and it's almost like Kai Miller saying just suppose maybe it isn't even true that there is a book written for you but suppose there is what would that make possible. Kyw Miller's book of Genesis. Suppose there was a book full only of the word let from WHO's clipped sound. All things began for an firmament feather the first whale. Suppose we could scroll through its pages every day to find pronounce. Let meant only for US. We would stumble through the streets with open. Books is cross from too much reading.

"Let's get to one in Hayward. Let's talk about Willie Mack. What's up one? Thanks for making it. There's a couple of things that that come to mind. About Willie grown up in the sixties when he was in his time. We played a lot of sandlot baseball whistle ball. And everybody had that Willie McCovey warm swimming, the Battersby for he swung back low and his hip swung back and forth. Everybody had that in their wealth A-plus. And then another thing is if you remember way back in the day, and it would be described by lawn, and and the other guys that they had the McCovey shift. Yeah. They talk about that a lot today about how guys would move. We see it all the time today. But you heard it was crew co talking about how you see the shifts a lot today, but mainly from Covey back in the day, they called us. And here they go into the McCovey shifts. Yeah. That's cool. Yeah. Get stuck that. I. You know? Ballplayer. Always be in my mind is one of my childhood us. No doubt. Thank you want. I appreciate the phone. Call very much as go to a Gordon Menlo Park. Let's talk about Willie McCovey what's up born July. Appreciate the reverence. Honors given the Willie tonight. He really deserved it. I got a couple of memories. I remember being a candlestick and one time he went down to the outside corridor to hit a ball. The darn ball. Couldn't have gotten more than eighteen to twenty feet. It hit the scoreboard on the way up. I remember that clearly and I can still hear that. The. That ball hitting the scoreboard a candlesticks. I mean that was one memory. And then another one like crooked said. I'm about cuckoo's age. Sorry. Remember the games that we used to see on channel two from Los Angeles. Splint the giants and dodgers would play and it was battle Royal. I mean, I it was a very tough rough game back then. Like, let's say really it really. Makes it a home run against Drysdale or one of these guys. You know, the next time up he was going down to imagine. If that happened today. Can you imagine the problems we would have a different totally different game. Yeah. Exactly. And and I can never remember Willie McCovey ever charging them out. US brushed back. He was knocked down. But he got right back up, and it was Grizedale. Drysdale was the head. I mean, I remember it. Clearly, I was only nine ten years old but honorable watching skies fearsome, but Willie McCovey had so much class. And you could put a charge into a ball like nobody can remember. So keep up with the highlights and thank you so much for what you're doing with with this guy. Appreciate you. Appreciate your listening. Listen, let's be honest here. Let's be on some thirty two years old. I wasn't around for Willie McCovey I wasn't around for his prime. He was in the hall of fame before I was even born my memories of Willie McCovey are from my dad who that's his favorite player of all time as it is. With a lot of giants fans Willie MAC, we talked to Marty Larry about an hour and a half ago almost two hours ago about you know, when they came over from New York, Willie Mays was still looked at as a New York superstar and being that they had this team in San Francisco's brand new team. He was the first superstar of the San Francisco Giants and his legend will never die. His legacy will never die. We will always always talk about Willie McCovey will always remember Willie McCovey. I mean, it's very hard to ignore. What he's done for this franchise. Just walk around AT and T and see all the tributes to McCovey the willing Willie McCovey award the Willie MAC award. It is it's very. It is in the league athlete when it comes to our fandom out in the bay area. I don't know how many guys that we have seen come through the bay area. And all the sports football basketball and baseball that have this just this unbelievable trail behind them of everybody being attached to this one individual you hear about the emotion that goes into some of these players. I mean who today can carry the Lord like a Willie McCovey? Would it be Steph curry? I mean who today is Tim Lindsey Graham who still though it's not on that same level. I think McCovey being the first superstar for the San Francisco Giants 'cause I do believe this. And I've been saying this a longtime. San Francisco is a baseball town. San Francisco is a giants town. And I think the most important position in the bay area's quarterback for the forty Niners. But in this city, it's it's giants baseball. And so willing to Covey in a the way that he operated not only on the field. But off the field. I've been hearing a lot more people. We talked to Jim bar. We talked to Mari Larry we've heard from crooked. Kyw Miller off the field is where people talk about McCovey the most. And I think that's very rare to have a superstar of that. Caliber guy was so fear that the plate such competitor. So great but off the field, a kind sweet a big hearted, man. I find to be extremely rare. But thank you for the vote. Yeah. Go ahead. Go one more. Yeah. He was the grand marshal of the Redwood City July parade one day. And I made I made I contact with. And I made that speech stretch the deal. Each smile that gave me away. And it was sweet. You know, here's another thing, drew. They don't call it McCovey cove for nothing down. No doubt about it. I mean, there's a reason Gordon thank you very much. I appreciate you. A couple more phone calls, then we'll hear from Larry Baer who hopped on our Airways earlier this afternoon. Let's go to Dan Richmond on Cambier. Hi, dan. Hey, good evening. Shakespeare, truly everybody tough day. Yeah. Mccovey my favorite player of all time. Anybody ever said I needed to get a new player more contemporary? I said no way most grace most power of any therapy ever seen the kid as an adult as a coach as a player. But I do I do want to say that we got to meet him. Well after playing this. I was a wreck director south of market wrecked. Uh-huh. The kit to represent all the kids at the city ground breaking ceremony. So. William McCovey willing as one mayor Shaw or. And I believe out there, and I get to meet and shake hands. All these guys gotta admit, I was a deer in the headlights when I saw willing Willie McCovey all these other guys were amazing to me and shook hands with very fortunate that my teammates at the rec center, we have the chance to Pablo Luna out there. Little kid willing, Willie McCovey said, hey, we needed you. Now, we can get this thing started. Thanks a lot. We needed you to give me a handshake. And I'll never forget that moment and just all years watching Gary park and chill to covering the giants. And the dog teams seeing the greatness of Willie McCovey up to his last plate appearance says a sacked fly, guess the dodgers. But never forget him always gonna be my favorite stories about his grace and power. And even the way he'd he'd hop off first base after maybe a routine groundout and toss the ball to his catcher lets you don't really see these days Philly so back to the middle infielders and just had a certain flair certain way about him that hopefully the kids can get all today. I mean, we try talking with my dad about being a younger younger giants fan. You know, Dan, what I wanna know is what was it like for you to go out and actually see him as a kid was he was he an event was he in a van for you like a Barry Bonds of Steph curry when you went to candlestick, did you go to see Willie McCovey? Is more of a constant? It wasn't really. He was someone that you you just really yes. Looking forward to see he'd be the guy. I mean, I I liked watching Terry Whitfield, Larry Herndon and Jack Clark and all these great, Jack. Giants had and then Darrell Evans, Mike IBM later, but you know, John mastery of and you'd look forward all these different players and Mike Sadek Marquel? The list goes on and I haven't even gotten Amy Fisher's, but I'm on a few go. I mean, holy he'll just but the thing was Louis McCovey. He he said and shoulders above pretty much any giant player. Probably at that era for me dig it seem as play he'd moved on right before. I'm basically my first giants game. But yeah, Willie McCovey just a star amongst stars. But the most mellow and humble guy, and he would just give a nice a nice wave to the fans. So you have to sit a couple of times usually as way up way up high with the the mall top slinging them around the edge. Yeah. But but basically down below what's in a great while you get down there. And and man that guy sure did look way bigger than I guess, whatever. It's heightened malate where on the on the baseball classics four looks like he's about seven four. Yeah. Exactly. And especially if you're like, I don't know I born in sixty seven so you know, you got to come back to the giants after the Padres. And for a couple more years is a giant, man. He was just amazing. I gotta admit I cried when he retired one of the last times, I cried, you know, to be a sensitive guy. I guess, but you really you really was just I couldn't believe you wouldn't play again. Is tough day. But it's a day to celebrate to say everybody should go. Check out the nineteen eighty giants highlight film on YouTube when they're not listening to candy are for giants coach because you'll see a great synopsis of his whole career on that nineteen eighty highlights on with L Michaels. But not saying that I digress. Begging you thanks for being there tonight you for taking a couple of minutes. So all my buddies across the bay grew up in English invaders out there San Francisco, thanks, thanks for making the call, Dan. I do appreciate you eight away kmby arts a number. Let's take one more than we'll get to the words of Larry Barron hopped on our Airways earlier this afternoon. As we talk about the passing of Willie McCovey is going to Dave in Santa Rosa before.

I mean, it was is an amazing work that everybody does he just have to adjust on that. Obviously a very sad day for the giants. You guys are doing an excellent job. I'm serious. That's why. It's time. Thank you. We're back. We've never stretched us when we were growing up. We always Willie MAC. And one day. I caught a ball out instead of filled that Willie Mays hit for two home run in seventeen against the dodgers. That put them up three two. Yeah. Yeah. You still got the ball? I know listen to the story it I'll tell you what happened to the damn ball. All right. I wish I still had it. Anyway. My dad saw me, you know.

"Is of national significance. So it's not only important for each and every constituent here. It's important for what it means to the country. One to ask you about a letter that you just sent out a freedom of information act request on on some of the information related the cavenaugh nomination that. That the US Senate never saw not only some of his papers during the Bush administration. But but also the investigation. Assuming you get that information back. What do you think it'd be done with it given that he's already on the court? Well, not too much in terms of his being on the court, but we don't want anything like this to ever happen again. And what's important about having all being on the court apart from the issues where we disagree. And but the president won the election is anybody he appointed would probably be supporting those things was most dangerous about. I guess I have to say Justice. Kevin now is that he does not believe he thinks the president is above the law. So the president sent to the court a person who undermines the separation of power and the co equal branch of government by saying when I'm Linda court has said, I don't think the president should have to answer for any of the charges that have come to him. So he is undermining. The balance of power that our founders intended. And I don't think that he was honest in his presentation, but the biggest danger is not only on the issues because anybody the president would appoint would be against us on a woman's right to choose and voting rights and civil rights, and and so many of those issues LGBTQ, get a marriage equality. The list goes on guns immigration, but that's no he won the election. So he appointed somebody like that. We would only hope that whoever they he would appoint with honor the constitution of the United States, which is taken oath to protect and defend. I don't believe that Justice Kevin can fully take that oath from what he has said already. But putting him aside? We don't want this ever to happen again. And so my freedom of information letter would be foia letter. But be about we want to see what the of what the communications were to the FBI limiting their investigation. A B. What the the report was why should this is very important. Why should it be confined to one hundred people's if they were going to John one at a time to read this thing, I was shameful? So we want wanna see it. We just wanna see truth people should know especially with the president. And a very disgraceful way. Speaking out in a very negative way about women. He said, they're good people on both sides, and Charlottesville imagine. But this was an angry mob. Women speaking at for Dr Bassi Ford, just appalling. So anyway will want to see what the instructions were from the White House to the FBI. And by the way, I just remind that in two thousand sixteen in September of two thousand sixteen the F B I released released its communications with its interviews with Senator Clinton Secretary Clinton, they released it and why they said well because it was public interest in it. And why because there was a foia. Here's my way leader Pelosi. Thank you so much for spending time with us on behalf of my colleague kind Milner myself. Thank you all for watching this opinion, central back with my editorial board colleagues KYW Miller any takeaways or overriding impressions of Nancy Pelosi. She seemed really pragmatic about what is going to take to win the house, which is that it's going to take a message about economic security for families. And she seemed to think that it was not going to be a slam dunk, and that she was going to have to work with a pretty hostile Senate and a pretty hostile White House. So she sounds like someone who knows exactly what kind of battle. She's facing. No question about it. In fact, I was struck by the one figure that she came out with where she said twenty five thousand boats Dacian wide in all those congressional races are good determine which party remains in control, that's pretty profound and that wraps up.

"Welcome to opinion central. I'm John D S two chronicles aditorial paycheck hitter here with my editorial board colleagues. What a week we've had it began with his waking up to the news Monday mornings EPA, the attorney general rod Rosenstein was about to either quitter be fired. We've had two new accusers come out against the prem- court nominee. Brad kavanagh. We had one of the most bizarre presidential press conferences in memory. We had that new two billion dollar transbay terminal shut down after cracks were discovered in structural steel, and then Christine Blasi Ford and Brett cavenaugh had their day before the Senate Judiciary committee, but start with the latest debt Ford and Cavanaugh testimony lows. Think was the telling moment of the day. This is Lois Kavakava deputy Dettori page editor the telling moment by far was when Christine blazing Blasi Ford described the. Uproarious laughter that she heard after the alleged assault that just stuck with everybody. I listen to this hearing from the very beginning all the way till the end of it. That is definitely the line that sticks in my mind. Kyw Miller you wrote a column last week where you talked about the Nita hill hearings which were so such a defining moment in early nineteen ninety s what did you think today? I mean was this another Anita hill type hearing or was it even even crazier. In some ways, it was worse partially because it was so long. But then also, but then also because the thing that was so interesting was that Christine blazey Ford was so credible as a witness and part of it is because she has dedicated her life since this incident to understanding and healing other people who were in the situation. And so she could explain it not only from the perspective of of being a victim. But also from the perspective of being a psychologist, and I think it was it's going to be very very difficult to say that she was lying or that. She didn't get anything. Right because she did such a good job by contrast. Brett cut Cavanaugh was was furious was angry was entitled seemed extremely just it was very easy to understand see him as a an angry belligerent drunk, and that's kind of we came across today. We'll we'll whoa to be the man to bring up any of this Marshall kill Toronto. But I thought Canada and and policy for just offered completely different world. Cbs was. Yes, when was no one was night. One was day. One was black one was white. I mean, there was there was just nothing at all that they agreed on. And in the end, the whoever bats last in a funny way is the one who leaves the strongest impression perhaps I don't know that that's true with the way people manipulate video. But. Kevin would seem to be the longest on the stand and was in a way the most vengeful and and angry. It's speaking back to senators, which is something you never do it. A here see had done much hearing crying just demanding answers, a ridiculing people who had accused him. It was very tough performance. Much much more muscle strong expected from that guy. One of the thing that struck me was how this hearing devolved in the process of the day began with the Senate bringing in Rachel Mitchell. Veterans sex crimes prosecutor to basically grill, Dr Ford, and then suddenly when Cavanaugh was on the stand. It took very little time in the center start that Republican senators start either throwing softballs at him or blasting Dem's. Would you think Josh you were fallen at all day for the toil board? The the spectacle is pretty bizarre of the. The Republicans on the committee outsourcing their questioning to a prosecutor who was primarily preoccupied with conducting sort of cross examination of the alleged victim of the crime. And as you said, they they quickly abandoned this whole strange construct as soon as it came to questioning Cavanaugh the alleged criminal. So it was a it was a I think most people who aren't extremely sympathetic to Cavanaugh and his supporters are found that to be a mistake. Let me throw out this idea for anyone who wants that's Josh colty. By the way, our editorial writer for everyone to jump in on..
