I think you gave me some a real scare last year. It's disappointing that you're not running, but I get it. Is it because it was rigged? Is it because it's just too overwhelming with too many Democrats? I'd appreciate an answer and hopefully for you to reconsider. Thanks..

"They'll convince the public to get on board, which of course starts with a new ad. This is the world we see. A plastic bag floats in the ocean, plastic bottles and trash or piled high on beaches. Because the world we see. And as the music soars the smiling young people are picking it all up, we see scientists and recycling plants and blue sorting tubs, and we have the tools. We have the people. That can change the world. I wanted to know what the architects of the last plan, the one from the 1990s thought of this. So I watched it with Lou Freeman. What do you think? Deja vu all over again. It's sometimes said. This is the same kind of thinking that ran in the 90s. I don't think this kind of advertising is helpful to them at all. And Larry Thomas, the bigwig, who wants represented plastic to the public. He said the same. I don't think anything has changed. I think it's exactly the same. These days Larry spends a lot of time biking past the ocean. And he's become deeply worried about its future. What it will look like in another 20 or 50 years long after he's gone. And he thinks back to those years he spent at fancy hotels and conference rooms with oil and plastic executives. And he says what occurs to him now is something he says, maybe should have been obvious all along. He says what he saw was an industry that didn't want recycling to work. Because if the job is to sell as much oil as you possibly can, as much virgin oil as you possibly can, any amount of recycled plastic. Is competition. They were not interested in and still aren't interested as far as I'm concerned in putting any real money or effort in the recycling because they want to sell virgin material. Nobody who's producing a virgin product wants something to come along that is going to replace it, produce more virgin material. That's their business. Every year they want to say they produced X number of million more pounds because that means our business is growing. And it is growing, we're making more plastic buying more plastic using more plastic. That's not going to go away any time soon. But as the industry does off their new ads and makes their new promises. There is one difference. The.

"Need to know about the you don't. I'm bobby finger. I'm lindsey weber. And this is one of the opening lines from the new christina million romantic comedy resort to love. When i heard they were looking for a singer on a tropical island. I figure why not forget things that we talked about on the show all the time and i know we talked about resort to love in the past briefly when it was announced. But i liked that. This line reminds me of everything i needed to know. Which is that when she heard. They needed a singer at the resort on tropical islands. She said why not lie. Who's the love interest in this single walls that guy from like power and the show the fantasy. What's about a time. Okay interesting so she goes there. Apparently here's the summary. Aspiring pop star. Erica to christina milian. Who is not aspiring ends up as the entertainment at her ex-fiances wedding after reluctantly. Taking a gig at a luxurious mauritius island resort while in the wake of a music career. Meltdown she tries to keep the past relationship a secret from his bride to be beverly but erica rediscovers her feelings for her ex jason by jay phero despite his brother calebs walls attempts to keep them falling back in love. It's funny that like. I've stopped watching netflix. Mostly like what do i watch netflix. For like i think you should leave. And that's it. And now i'm going to have to. I was like. I'm going to have to cancel my netflix subscription. I don't use for anything. I'm going to use it. For christina. millions resort to love line. Oh it's not even a lifetime movie. It's like a netflix. A net flicks movie yeah. They're they're like kind of pale. Imitations of lifetime movies at this point. They're not even like they're almost like too expensive like they spend too much money on them which they don't spend a lot of money on them but it's it's enough money where you can tell the difference but still not enough money that they're out here asking you for twenty dollars to rent it. What are the odds of him. Showing up here to get married and my boss wants to sing at his wedding. You listening to who's there are weekly call in show where we take your questions comments and concerns at six one nine who them. Let's get started with comments. Hi bobby lindsey I had to pass the podcast today. When i was listening because you're talking about zendaya and tom holland and i don't think it's true that they dated for three years only because she was dating jacob. Oh lordy berry quietly up until he started dating kaya gerber in around twenty nineteen so i think that this really this development and their relationship is relatively new but i appreciate your sound logic on it anyways crunch crunch by setting. They were together the whole time. Do you think that day and tom holland were together the whole time. Yeah i think so. I think so too. I don't know these. we got when i tell you. We've got a million calls about this. We've got a million calls. But i don't think that this proves anything i know. We talked about sunday. And jacob already at one point in the past and i totally forgot. It happened now i remember. Thanks for the reminder. They were kissing out out front of. He's calvin klein ad on lafayette which is like the iconic. Calvin klein be the subway at lafayette and they were smooching in front of him in his calvin but i i'm like she was just like with tom holland essentially and like they were kind of on and off but not really like whatever i think so. Too and also jacob alert was seen powell around with other people as well kinda gerber at one point. Yeah and if you remember. Jacob lordy was in if you think that this is a publicity stunt jacob blurred. He was in euphoria with zendaya. So philosophies going on here that could have been part of this whole thing. Do the point is data is a them jacob authorities and tom all of them so i guess we're not talking about them anymore. So it goes. That's over the next call. Her live weekly. I am a lawyer. And i'm excited because this is the first time that i've ever called gotten to be like lawyer here. Here's some information anyway. Regarding ring oh and rengo there's actually a requirement that you have a trademark. You have to basically protect or police or enforce it so anything that you might think is threatening to the trademark. You have to either send a season districts letter to get from the down or if people aren't responding to that you'd have to sue to demonstrate that you are protecting your trademarks so that you don't lose your train back so it's not necessarily rich people. Being petty just rich people trying to protect their trademarks It's actually really interesting. 'cause some big companies actually have people that work for them lawyers that work for them and their job is just to like school twitter and look for people using names like walmart for instance And using it incorrectly or using it for their own businesses and then sending letters doing people so that is my liar. Add french crunch guy. I had no idea that that was the rationale behind it. That you have that. you're taking care of. Yeah a defensive play. It's not like the the world will smackdown your copyright offenders. You have to go out and find them and say like fyi. I i am the ringo like you are not the ringo so that in the future if there's a bigger piece of like alleged infringement then cock rings with your name on them you can say look. I go out of my way to protect my trademark. I went after the rain exactly but the thing is he dropped the cock rings though so what this must have been something that a lawyer found and said oh this is a copyright infringement far and ringo had to step in and say leave the cock rings alone now that i'm thinking about it we got a couple of words calling about this now that i'm thinking about it. I wonder if this is one of those things. Where ringo was like god. Damn it i wanted to sell cock rings like ten years ago and people tell me that was a bad idea and now here i am being proven right too late harendra bobby longtime time I just wanted to call in about Soup nazi's Cameo what i think is really ridiculous about supremacy Larry thomas aka deceive nasi as he has this sort of caveat about how no commercials business products is in our casts and For the chef code. There's a two hundred dollar business price option which only needs. I'll put.

A high of 36 this afternoon clouds build up overnight alot of 25 warmer and rainy tomorrow. I'm Kirk Darling, Here's what's trending at 12 Noon, it seems President Biden once lawmakers to move on his $1.9 Trillion covert relief plan. President Biden reportedly told Democrats to move forward with his proposal. Not long after sitting down With Senate Republicans to try to hash out a bipartisan deal there. $618 billion proposal was swiftly rejected. Democrats yesterday clear procedural hurdle in the Senate to move forward with budget reconciliation. Fox is Jackie Heinrich. That reconciliation vote would allow Democrats to pass the plan with just a simple majority in the Senate. Tackling immigration through executive orders. Indiana Senator Todd Young says he disagrees with President Biden's Penan phone approach to the problem. We should give legislation and give Unity a chance right And that means working through our elected representatives, Biden signed three executive orders undoing what he called bad policy from the Trump Administration. Young says those orders are not as durable as legislation that could be passed by Congress. Congressman Jim Banks says the executive orders are putting the country's national security at risk to take a stronger look at what work during the Trump. Administration and not make the mistakes that the Biden administration appears that they're going to make from the outset a possible murder suicide on the South side late last night, investigators say, Larry Thomas, who was 81 may have shot and killed his 75 year old wife, Janet Thomas, before turning the gun on himself. It happened at a home near Stop 11 Road in US 31 police are still trying to figure out what led up to the shooting. One Republican state senator was concerned that someone might try to change the names of some cities and towns in Indiana, so he helped write a bill to make sure That wouldn't happen, and it's passed the Senate so the House will hear it next. I'm John Herrick. Senator Jack Sandlin had seen several sports teams changed their names due to protest by native Americans and other groups. And he didn't want that same thing to happen to Indianapolis, For example, if you change the name of a city whether it's in Annapolis or another city, someone has to sweep through all of those entries in our state statute and find them and.

Because if the job is to sell as much oil as you possibly can as much virgin oil as you possibly can, any amount of recycled plastic Competition they were not interested in and still arm. It is far as I'm concerned and putting any real Money or effort in the recycling because They want to sell version material. Nobody is producing a virgin product wants something to come along. That is gonna replace it Produce more virgin material. That's their business. Every year. They want to say they produced X number of million more pounds because that meant their business was growing, and it is growing. We're making more plastic buying more plastic using more plastic that's not going to go away anytime soon. It is the industry dust off their new ads and makes their new promises..

"Industry insider 1974 When it comes to recycling large quantities of plastic. It says there is quote serious doubt that it can ever be made viable on an economic basis. Now, Okay? Sure. Anyone can take something plastic, melted down and make something else. But what these documents are saying is that it's expensive. It's time consuming. It's chemically problematic. And it's just cheaper and easier to make plastic out of new oil instead of plastic trash. There are all kinds of names in these documents. Men who have never spoken publicly before, and there was one name. I kept seeing over and over. He was giving speeches of fancy hotels hosting conferences in Berlin and Phoenix. I called him a bigwig. He was the industry's top lobbyist Larry Thomas. This is the man I had to find. But do you know how many Larry Thomas is there are in the United States. Thousands I'd call say, Are you the Larry Thomas used to work in plastics? Are you the Larry Thomas who used to be president of the Society of the Plastics industry? And then finally, I was a front man for the plastics industry. No getting around it. The bigwig himself. I'll go what the industry wanted me to do. That's the show. Yeah, well, personal views certainly didn't always job was the views. I had toe take his part of my job, but That's what itwas Larry's retired now on the coast of Florida, But I told him I've been reading all about his exploits in the world of plastic. Where were the offices The officers were. Where would you think they would be? K Street? Yes. 18 25 K Street Case Tree was the heart of lobbying in Washington and was in those offices that top executives and the world's most powerful oil and plastic company's Met. They had meeting after meeting about a little problem they were having. It was just too much plastic trash and consumers didn't like it. In one of the documents I found from 1989. Larry wrote the top oil executives at Exxon, Chevron, Amoco, Dow DuPont, Procter and Gamble on a bunch of others, he wrote. The image of plastics is deteriorating at an alarming rate. We are approaching a point of no return the whole world. The classic status is I was under fired. We gotta do. What it takes to take the heat off. Because we want to continue to make plastic products. They wanted to keep making plastic. But the more you make the more plastic trash you get, and the obvious solution to this is to recycle it. If they knew they couldn't remember. It's expensive. It's a great There was a lot of discussion about how difficult it was to recycle. I knew that the infrastructure wasn't there. You really have recycling amount of a whole lot. So they needed a different plan. Larry decides to call a bunch of meetings at fancy hotels. He summons the society of the plastics, people. Oil executives. Larry doesn't remember the specifics of each particular meeting but one of his deputies of the time, Lou Freeman, he remembers if you could, Yeah, Peel back all the layers of my brain.

"Live from NPR news in Washington. I'm Dave Mattingly. Election Day is two weeks from today. President Trump is holding a town hall event this afternoon at the White House. Will be in Pennsylvania this evening for an airport rally in eery. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has no campaign events scheduled ahead of Thursday night's debate in Tennessee. The campaign says Biden will be preparing for the debate. Over the next few days. It will be held at Belmont University in Nashville. The director of the National Institutes of Health, Dr Francis Collins says he remains confident in Dr Anthony found cheese expertise has the U. S. Continues to battle the Corona virus pandemic. Tony found she is probably the most highly respected infectious disease expert in the world. He's also a terrific communicator, and I think the public has actually been greatly benefited. By hearing his unvarnished, unflinching descriptions of what's happening with this worst pandemic and more than 100 years. I have great confidence in him. Collins was speaking to NPR's morning addition, the day after President Trump described Fauci as a disaster in a phone call with campaign staff. Later in the day. At a campaign rally in Arizona, Trump mocked Joe Biden for heeding the advice of Fauci and other scientists. Koven 19 has killed more than 220,000 people in the U. S infections air rising in more than 30 states largely in the Midwest and West. This is NPR news. This is morning edition on W. N. Y. C at 8 31. Good morning. I'm Carrie Nolan, New York may have to consider changes to its quarantine rules for out of state travelers. Now they're two of its closest neighbors, Connecticut and New Jersey are seeing covert 19 cases. The two states are close to meeting requirements to be added to New York's list of places subject to the restrictions.

They're still problems with state and local funding, and they're still stuck on testing and tracing, which has been a top demand for Pelosi all along, you know she's been asking for a national testing and tracing plan to stop the spread of the virus. White House officials said they were willing to accept that. But Pelosi said in an interview on ABC is this week that the administration came back with a version of the bill that weakened the plan and took away really important language to make it binding. They changed Shell to may requirements to recommendations a plan to a strategy, not a strategic plan. And Democrats say that's a big deal because it's representative of the disconnect between what the White House is saying on.

"Is press play on Pacer R w I meddle in brand the recycling symbol. You know that triangle of three arrows with number in the middle is reassuring to find it on the bottom of our plastic containers. Sherm. We maybe buying plastic, but we can clean it and toss it in the blue bin. Our conscience reassured. Turns out we're fooling ourselves or more accurately. The plastic industry has been fooling us for years. Insiders knew all along that most plastic cannot be recycled. This has now been revealed after an investigation by NPR's Laura Sullivan and PBS's frontline. Together. They come through thousands of documents and spoke to the people involved in this big container of deception. And we're going to talk now More about this with Laura Sullivan Welcome. Thanks so much for having me great to have you and fantastic reporting. Let's start with the plastic itself. This is produced. With oil right and other chemicals, So it's really an oil industry product. And so therefore it's very difficult to get recycled. I mean, that's right. I mean, at the end, it's base. You know, plastic is made from oil, and that's really where the heart of this problem lies. Oil is very cheap. So you can take something plastic. Anybody can taste mine plastic. I think we've all done. It are microwaves at some point and you can melt it down and you could turn it into something else. But that entire process takes a lot of time. You've got to send a garbage truck to your house. You gotta pay somebody to sort it all out. There's actually hundreds of different kinds of plastic and you can't melt them together because it creates this sort of chemical mess. And so you have to pull them all apart, make giant piles turning and then and then, at that point, you might be ableto make it into something else, once or twice. And then the other problem is the plastic degrades. So it's really just a one or two stop before gets to the landfill, and all of this ends up resulting in a very sort of expensive process that cannot compete with how cheap oil is. It's just cheaper and easier to make plastic. Out of oil than it is to make it out of plastic trash, which remarkable about this is that these problems have existed for decades. These are the same problems that existed in the 19 seventies. But we never knew about any of this, and I think that's what started our reporting into. This was trying to figure out like a lot of people, and I'm sure you two I sort of grew up with these commercials about How great plastic recycling is and how you just put find a blue bin and everything's okay. And I couldn't sort of figure out why I believe that all this plastic could be recycled when in fact, it couldn't be or wouldn't pay. So when we toss it into the blue band, Where does it go? So for the most part, if you look at All of the plastic that's been produced over the past 30 years less than 10% of it has ever been recycled, and by that, I mean, turned into something else. Most of the plastic is buried in landfills. It's burned and incinerators. Or it can wind up in third in countries that don't know what to do with it or in the ocean. And that's why I think you see a lot of the The amount of plastic in the ocean at this point is because We've put, we sent so much of it to China and to Southeast Asia and those countries were overwhelmed with the amount of quote unquote recycling that we were sending them at this point in the United States, especially now that China closed its doors. Even if you turn over those symbols, the three through seven miners will have a giant X through them. There are no U. S markets for 3377, by the way, just means all other plastic. And there may be a market for for soda bottles and milk jugs, which will be in the one in two category. But the rest of the stuff, even the recyclers. You know all the recyclers that I went out and talked to. They don't want you to turn over. And so what's number two? I'm gonna put it in because they can't tell a two from before it all looks the same. So they're saying At this point, there might be markets for soda bottles and milk jugs. But other than that there, most of it at this point in United States is getting land filled. Wow. And so what you're referring to is when you look at the bottom and you see those those arrows inside is a number and we've known for a while now that we can't recycle 33 sevens those numbers But yet, but one through two, we've thought if it has a one or two that will get recycled will put it in there. You saying that I mean, that is a dicey proper even that's a problem for for the recycling centers because a lot of No, there's a there's a red solo cup. That's a number four and there's a red solo cup. That's a number to and someone who's supposed to pick that out and sort that out. They can't do that. They can't it's not cost effective. That symbol on the bottom of the container, by the way, is part of our investigation, and we went and looked at how the symbol came about. And what we found. Was this quiet lobbying campaign that you know, I didn't know anything about Don't think most people in any idea that happened. In the late 19 eighties and early 19 nineties to mandate that 40 states. Almost 40 states put the symbol on the bottom of containers, even though their own documents show that they knew that for the most that, for most of this plastic, there was no way to economically recycle it. And yet they turned around in the 19 nineties, starting in the 19 nineties and told everybody It's you we should recycle. And they did this through school recycling contests and expensive sorting machines and nonprofits. And they launched all these big public relations campaigns about they're gonna recycle all the plastic and national parks and they're going to cycle all the plastic out of New York school lunches. And and when we looked at, you know, 12 of these, you know most high profile projects. We found that all of them shuttered or failed within, you know, five years of being launched, and it was at the same time that you saw this incredible burst of commercial saying, go out and recycle plastic or use plastic. It's so good. It's amazing product. Sort of promoting the benefits of plastic to get out of. What at that time was a huge public outcry. Because the problem the plastic industry in the oil industry has always had And that the public is always sensed is that it's a lot of trash. It's just a lot of trash. So this all started this idea that we have to do something to take the pressure off. This started. When in the late eighties early nineties when the plastic industry said Okay, what are we going to Dio? On day came up with this idea of promoting recycling. Yes. So in the late eighties and nineties, there was a huge public outcry about the amount of trash that all of this plastic was producing. And people said, You know, we need to start banning this. You know, we can't have all this plastic trash and the industry. Was in a panic and some of the documents we found, you know, letters to top officials saying, you know, we need to do something about this one, top officials said, are you know the image of plastics is deteriorating at an alarming rate? And so it was at that point that they got together and decided, as as one top official told me to advertise their way out of the plastic trash problem, And you spoke of a guy named Larry Thomas, who was.

Of course you do. Otherwise, we're just talking about the most. Otherwise, you're talking about anecdotes, otherwise, just talking about what we saw on television. Otherwise, it doesn't mean anything. You have to have facts to back what you're saying. Now, Thomas, you started out by saying yes, Yes, yes, we could start. You started out the fact that you have to have facts and you also have that C Goto. What you see in which experiences well, because Going off a statistic you going off on other people's statistics. Statistics can be twisted in many ways, and it often have so over there. Thomas Thomas, either they're either the rate either the radio either the rate at which black to being shot by the police are going up or going down. And according to the CDC, they're going down dramatically in the last 50 60 years. You're absolutely right. Thomas. You started out by talking about the races. History of the MPD. No doubt one of the the local reformers you should know this isn't your born and raised here is a woman named Connie Rice, not Condi Rice, Makani Rice and their relatives related by the way. Connie Rice is left wing Condi Rice as you know with the Republican, But Connie Rice has been a long time. Anti police advocate who's all off for the time I can remember has argued that the police have engaged in institutional racism. She no longer feels that way and has done a 1 80 about 15 20 years ago. This is not the same LAPD. It was when you and I grew up. We had back to back black police chief here in when you say engaged in. It's a racism. Can you be more specific than far traffic stops? And and how relationship Absolutely. Definitely. I can color after Louis I can. Absolutely I can be more more. I'm happy too. If you let me think that I have negative. Remember Chris Darden, the whore who was prosecuting when the case was over. He joined the because he wanted the police to start for the first time to record traffic stops by race Before that, you pull somebody over you wrote down the stop, but you didn't write down the race of the person you pulled over. So now you have all this data for the last 20 years, The police have had to record the race of the person they pull over in order to determine whether there's any sort of pattern of abuse pattern of racism. Where are the lawsuits? Thomas Where's the lawsuit? Argument at the LAPD. Based upon these numbers we've now gathered have pulled over people just because they're black, as opposed to because they've committed a traffic offence. Where's the lawsuit? Well, I could tell you this much, sir. I've been living in the Antelope Valley for quite some years now, and I had a couple of traffic incidents where I got a ticket, and when I went to the court, it was predominantly black folks.

"To see how well just about 25 years ago, Seinfeld writer decided to come up with a script that was based on his favorite midtown New York lunch spot. And Larry Thomas. The actor is now no knows the Seinfeld soup Nazi forever More Good Morning, Larry. How you doing? Good morning. It was interesting hearing that seeing it. Is this right? You were only on one episode. Yeah, until the finale. They you know, they brought a budget list back for a little quick shots in the finale. But it was only one suit. Not see episode. Isn't it incredible that that it had the impact? It did? Yeah, and I have had to try to figure out through the years. Why so many people that Talk to me think there were numerous episodes when you know I on their rumor storylines in the one episode, So maybe that's it Well, so like, Yeah, they re ran things way too many people going. I loved all your episode that when I go on one of them, Thank you. Before we talk about the face masks and the Boomer natural Sze Ah, a couple of questions I have about about your role as the soup Nazi. And the story goes that in the audition, you didn't get a lot of guidance. You Ah, you showed up with some face double your old army jacket and And you, you read the part in a much meaner way than they had envisioned. It is that is that accurate? Yeah, yeah. I mean, the way you see on TV is the way I came in with it. And it was very weird to me because Jerry himself and he was the only guy in the room that I recognized beside the casting director and He laugh at just about every single word I said to the point where it was getting distracting. He was laughing so hard and I am he Brought me They made me wait about 20 minutes and they brought me back in again. And he said, you know, I'm really thought that was really funny, man. But I don't understand why the character has to be so mean, Could you do it again and making a little nicer? And I thought, Why God, I thought I had it, you know, and I really thought I was and then I did it. I tried it that way. And he didn't laugh at all. And so I thought that was a really sunk. You know what it was? Jerry was paying a guy that'll just go like you know, your way is funnier. Was the line was the line. No soup for you written for you. Yes, it it, Wass. It was, but I actually came up. The night before. When there was no script available of the original audition, the pre read, I actually made up the words, no soup. I said I was just doing an improv and I said, You know, you baldy to the end of the line of you get no soup. And then I got to the addition the next morning, and the first three scenes were available for us to read and I saw no soup for you. And I thought what I call interesting and it excited know anything about It was based on anybody or anything like reading about you. And you've made appearances as the Seinfeld Soup Nazi. You were in a commercial with Jerry Seinfeld in Jay Leno and you've done all sorts of central related events. And unlike a lot of AA lot of other actors who are identified with with one role I love that you You embrace it. You have fun with it. Even though you have done other things, and you do other things. Ah, this is something that although it originally only paid like a couple of 1000 bucks, I know you've made some money off of it, but but still, it's It's nice that you go along with the joke after all these years. Yeah, I actually enjoyed getting to play him again. Every time I d'oh, which is you know it isn't much, but I get to do it. Unlike cameos. You know, I get to say happy birthday to people or give people advice or pep talks or whatever the cameo was about. I do it in the soup Nazi and it's fun to get to flush him out a little bit because Get a character you like and you want to see what he would do in different situations. And, you know, it was frustrating to both me and the writer Spike Feresten that we didn't get to do it again because those of us he wanted to write more, and I wanted to play it more. So we kind of like, you know, Jerry like that, You know, he sees something that works like he did with his whole Siri's in the ninth season, and I think it's really working. He doesn't want to, like, push it. And now and now you have the face masks the boomer natural face masks and let's play. Ah, the YouTube video. Listen to the audio is Larry Thomas and Boomer Natural facemasks. Listen. For all of you running around out there with no mask on because you think you can't be bothered to remember. You're protecting other people from yourself. So if you show up in my line, you better be wearing a mask. Just remember no mask. No suit When it says no has no soup on the mask, And I imagine if you're a fan of Seinfeld, this is a perfect mask and a perfect gift for somebody, isn't it? Yeah. I mean, I think they're great. I love the design that Boomer came up with. Um, you know, I started saying that on cameos just just Came out one time, you know, because I've been doing a lot of them during the pandemic, and and I I I'm really serious about that. I go outside to run every morning and and I have the avoid people because people are walking around the streets, walking their dogs and just walking around and nobody's won a maths and I have to, really, you know, cross the street constantly because I don't want to get any of those people and So I started to think no mask, no soup and a friend of mine's a trademark attorney, and we had talked years ago about somebody trademarking, no soup for you. That really had no right to do it. But nobody had ever bothered to do it because you know, Castle Rock felt they were protected under a copyright and some somebody that really didn't have a right to trade market. Trademark it and they've never given anybody a hard time about it. But This trademark attorney. We talked a lot about it. And so when I came up with no mask, no soup. I called him and I said she trademarked because, Yeah, let's do it, So I did it. And then I put out that essay and Suzanne From Boomer natural. Suzanne Harmes just immediately contacted me because we have met once and she goes. I'm working with a company right now. That makes really good faith masks. You know, they have nano silver technology, and they adhere to all the government regulations for the best kind of mask. You have. And, you know, she said, We'd love to make your mask and I went. That would be really cool, You know? And yeah, they're no, they are. They're cool. I hope it's not an item that's available for long. To be honest, because right, I hope it's not necessary for long. But for right now, Yeah, it's just a really cool item. They came up with an excellent design and three different colors. And I'm just thrilled to death with it. So you know when we did commercials I don't know if you Watch those, but yeah, they got Ah, people and people. Keep on Domenico. Yeah, people can go through all those. And I want to get this in.

But really comes from the dupont chemical company and some of the plastic industries old records are housed in the Hagley Library. . It's this stone building on the grounds of the first dupont family home in Delaware. . This is a place that actually used to store sodium nitrate back when Dupont made gunpowder not plastic. .

Saran. . Wrap there were a couple of clues about recycling inside the boxes from the industry's most powerful lobby group at the time the Society of the plastics industry their job was to lobby for the big oil and plastic companies. . So think Exxon Chevron Dow Dupont. . And there's this one memo from one, , thousand, , nine, , hundred, , seventy, , three, , the. . Movement is just being born, , and one of the top people in the plastics industry is talking about how the cost of sorting plastic is high but it seemed like a lot of the documents were were missing I find reference to a memo a report, , but then I noticed that someone had drawn a line through it Lucas. . Can I ask you a question absolute. . Okay. . Why? ? In this section are all. . These APPS. . So many of these. . Cross out because those records are no longer. .

Actually the industry consultant died in the why found the boxes and gave them to Syracuse and inside these boxes. . I found what I was looking for a report was sent to top oil and plastic executives in nineteen seventy three. . It says, , recycling plastic is nearly impossible. . There is no recovery from obsolete products. . It says recycling is costly sorting. . It is infeasible plus it says plastic degrades every time you try to reuse it. . So the oil in plastic industry new, , they've known for almost fifty years. . and. . Then I found more confidential memos in meetings echoed decades of this knowledge insight thousands of pages of courtroom discovery. . There's a speech from an industry insider in nineteen seventy four when it comes to recycling large quantities plastic, , it says there is quote serious doubt that it can ever be made viable on an economic basis. . Now. . Okay. . Sure. . Anyone can take something plastic melted down and make something else. . But what these documents are saying is that it's expensive, , it's time consuming it's chemically problematic and it's just cheaper and easier to make plastic out of new oil instead of plastic trash there are all kinds of names in these documents men who have never spoken publicly before and there was one name I kept seeing over and over he. . was, , giving speeches at fancy hotels, , hosting conferences and Berlin. .

How Big Oil Misled The Public Into Believing Plastic Would Be Recycled

"How did millions of Americans come to believe that most plastic would be recycled when that's not actually true Laura Sullivan is GonNa take the story from here. Okay, it seemed like a good place to start was the plastic industry they make the stuff. Did they know the truth about recycling plastic? I headed to one of the birthplaces of plastic plastic comes from oil. But really comes from the dupont chemical company and some of the plastic industries old records are housed in the Hagley Library. It's this stone building on the grounds of the first dupont family home in Delaware. This is a place that actually used to store sodium nitrate back when Dupont made gunpowder not plastic. There's an archivist with a bow tie a handlebar moustache named Lucas Clawson, and he looks like someone would make cocktails. Lucas wheeled out a cart of boxes. Thank you. Files that documented the discovery of a chemical marvel that changed the world, a product that looked like glass but break a product that could also look like lightweight fluff but keep things hot called Styrofoam and incredible new film that can preserve food for days called. Saran. Wrap there were a couple of clues about recycling inside the boxes from the industry's most powerful lobby group at the time the Society of the plastics industry their job was to lobby for the big oil and plastic companies. So think Exxon Chevron Dow Dupont. And there's this one memo from one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, three, the. Movement is just being born, and one of the top people in the plastics industry is talking about how the cost of sorting plastic is high but it seemed like a lot of the documents were were missing I find reference to a memo a report, but then I noticed that someone had drawn a line through it Lucas. Can I ask you a question absolute. Okay. Why? In this section are all. These APPS. So many of these. Cross out because those records are no longer. Here anymore day or not where did they go the society of the Plastics Industry Astra them back think they really yes is an unusual. That doesn't happen often. Do you do know why they took them. Did they say? I, do not know. Okay Of course, there are all kinds of reasons why an industry lobbying group might want. It's records back I did call society the plastic folks and ask them if I could see the records they took they said No. So I headed to another library this time at Syracuse University and they're buried in its tax, our boxes of files donated from an industry consultant. Actually the industry consultant died in the why found the boxes and gave them to Syracuse and inside these boxes. I found what I was looking for a report was sent to top oil and plastic executives in nineteen seventy three. It says, recycling plastic is nearly impossible. There is no recovery from obsolete products. It says recycling is costly sorting. It is infeasible plus it says plastic degrades every time you try to reuse it. So the oil in plastic industry new, they've known for almost fifty years. and. Then I found more confidential memos in meetings echoed decades of this knowledge insight thousands of pages of courtroom discovery. There's a speech from an industry insider in nineteen seventy four when it comes to recycling large quantities plastic, it says there is quote serious doubt that it can ever be made viable on an economic basis. Now. Okay. Sure. Anyone can take something plastic melted down and make something else. But what these documents are saying is that it's expensive, it's time consuming it's chemically problematic and it's just cheaper and easier to make plastic out of new oil instead of plastic trash there are all kinds of names in these documents men who have never spoken publicly before and there was one name I kept seeing over and over he. was, giving speeches at fancy hotels, hosting conferences and Berlin. Phoenix, they called him a bigwig. He was the industry's top lobbyist. Larry Thomas this is the man I had to find but do you know how many Larry Thomas's there are in the United? States. Thousands I'd call say are you the Larry Thomas used to work in plastics? Are you leery Thomas who used to be president of the Society of the plastics industry? And then finally, I'll prompt Merrin the plastics industry no getting around it the BIGWIG himself I'll walk. Do that's for sure. Yeah. My personal views certainly didn't always job with. US I had the quake as part of my job. That's the way it was there. He's retired now on the coast of Florida but I told him I've been reading all about his exploits in the world of plastic. Where would the offices the officers were? What would you think they would be K. Street yes. Twenty Five K. Street Casey was the heart of lobbying in Washington and it was in those offices at top executives in the world's most powerful oil and plastic companies met they had meeting after meeting about a little problem they were having there was just too much plastic trash consumers didn't like it. In one of the documents I found from nineteen nine, hundred nine Larry wrote the top oil executives at Exxon Chevron, Amoco Dow Dupont proctor, and gamble in a bunch of others he wrote the image of plastics is deteriorating at an alarming rate. We are approaching a point of no return. The classic. I was under fire. We gotta do. What it takes to take the heat off. Because we want to continue to make classic equality, they wanted to keep making plastic but the more you make the more plastic trash you get and the obvious solution to this is to recycle it but they knew they couldn't remember it's expensive. It's a great. Discussion about how difficult it was to recycle. They knew that the infrastructure wasn't there. So really have recycling amount to a whole lot. So they needed a different plan. Larry Decides to call a bunch of meetings at fancy hotels. He summons the Society of the plastics people executives Larry doesn't remember the specifics of each particular meeting but one of his deputies at the time Lou Freeman he remembers you could. Get. Back all the layers of my brain. Lou, remembers a bunch of meetings the basic question on the table was. You guys you're our trade association in the plastics industry aren't doing enough. We need to do more. This one dupont executive was telling Lou. It's your job to fix plastics imaging problem. So what do you need? You said, I think if we had five million dollars. which seemed like a lot of money. If we had five million dollars we could. We could. We could solve this problem. And My boss said in response. If you add five million dollars, you would know how to spend it effectively. Well, they came up with a way to spend five million dollars that and a lot more I. Remember this. This is one of these exchanges that sticks with me thirty five years later however long it's been. Anna was You know what we need to do is advertise our way out of it. That was the idea thrown out. The industry decided to advertise its way out of a can't recycle it problem. The possibilities off plastics plastics. From dense. Touted the benefits of a product that after it was used for the most part was headed to a landfill incinerator or even ocean. Look empty yet it's anything but trash it's full of potential. These commercials carried an environmentalist message, but they were paid for by the oil and plastic companies eventually leading to fifteen million dollars a year industrywide ad campaign promoting plastic. So I asked Larry why why spend tens of millions of dollars telling people to recycle plastic when the new recycling plastic wasn't going to work? and. That's when he said it. The point of the whole thing if the public thinks so recycling is working. Then they're not going to be concerned about the environment and if they're not concerned about the environment. Though keep buying plastic it wasn't just Larry in lieu who said this I spoke to half a dozen top guys involved in the industry at the time who all said plan was unfolding and it went beyond at the industry funded recycling projects and local neighborhoods expensive sorting machines that didn't make any economic sense school recycling contests.

That recycling symbol with the numbers in the middle this symbol has. So. Much confusion about what is and is not recyclable in the plan to stamp it on every plastic item popped up a lot in the documents I learned of a quiet campaign to lobby almost forty states to require that every single plastic item have this symbol stamped on it.

"Georges got a sympathetic character. But when you see his parents, you're like I'm kind of like George. Yeah, Like I get it. I get it so bad. Now I understand it. And also one of the funnier story lines is when George discovers that Susan has the dolls that look just like his mother. Hey, takes the doll and he brings it down to monks with the bees sitting with the ball. In the doll's yelling at him. Yeah. Great. Love that. Yeah, you s o. I had Watley at nine on my list. I think you had a Stella nine. Just jealous because you didn't have a scale on your list. Yeah. So how does this end up is a tie if I've Watley at nine. So you had him at nine item at 15 Because the major lives? Yes. He made my 15. Yes. Estelle didn't make my list. Because I like all the characters in the show reactor in the same way I She's just a headache for me complete, not our headache Grade. Had a couple of awesome headache Judge agreed to disagree a greater discreet I watched the scene earlier. And you're going to hear this with every character that was involved in this scene is when George Steinbrenner goes to Costanza's house to tell them that George is dead. The reaction from both Frank and Estelle, where Estelle questions George George Steinbrenner on her son being a hardworking, good man, and then Frank yells at him for trading. Jay Buhner. It's the absolute best is the best exchange. I love so good. It's so good. Okay, let's move on to number nine. And like we said earlier. This is the best one ofthe character of all time. Once again, I'm not counting the finale here. Everyone pops up in the finale. It was just kind of a stunt move at that point, but the soup Nazi yev Kassem played by Larry Thomas, Give me that. Give me a I. I was absolutely shocked. I didn't realize he was only in one episode up until today. I would have bet my whole life He was in a few episodes. A recurring character. No, it's one episode one of Zazi. For the character, and it's just like I was exclaiming no soup for you before I ever even want five years after this episode, anyone that does not give you the proper service at a restaurant like anyone that does not waver from what the menu. Is there. The soup Nazi they still owe or even if you're just like snapping with your friend's friend puts his hand over you slap it on and no soup for you just fits. Always. It's so sad news. No soup for you are Scotty. No, Get that corn out of my face, So that's three things. That's what you say. Three things. Thiss became so iconic that I was saying it as like a 12 year old and I didn't even watch Seinfeld yet. I'm going to need one of the Billy Dee's to help me out because I think he played the soup Nazi. In one episode of Scrubs, Maybe Or he showed up as the soup Nazi. Maybe, but help me out, but also for Larry Thomas, like he goes town to town as the soup Nazi now and he makes money off. It's unbelievable for, like, probably a few days of work. He's a food truck, right? Doesn't really I think he is a super food truck for like two days of work 25 years ago, this guy's made a career off it so ruined. Let's move on to number eight. Mac. It's two different people that are playing one really person and that is George Steinbrenner. I had him at number three. You had him at number 12 overall, 7.5 number eight overall, here on Lian 14 episodes, so they have a couple different bodies playing them, But it's Larry David's voice. Rattling off all this nonsense. I think I've laughed at every line he's ever said. I like the idea of the character more than I like the execution. I think I love the execution, having a Larry David frantically. You know, ranting, frantic. Anyone of them calzones. I know the Yankee thing if I hate the Yankees out of that new dynasty But the episode where Georges talking in the third person, and it just confuses Steinbrenner. Well, you good. You think that George would do this to hurt the Yankees? Well, I would never do that. And then, of course, when he's telling a stele in Frank that George is dead. And then Frank's responses. Why would you trade J. Buna, 30 home runs 100 R B eyes on our rocket for an arm. You don't know what this while you're doing that is one of the 45 Most quoted Cliff from the whole show is the beautiful stuff in here. That's for May. That's a point for Frank and not for Steinberg. I know. But then, of course, the calzone Episode two Where Steinbrenner's so obsessed with the calzones, and he makes Georges go back over and over and over and he cancels meetings because he needs George to go and get the calzones. And then Cramer's stuffs his jacket that was in the oven with the calzones in the vent, which once again Seinfeld is the best of this of taking everyone's Everyone's journey. Everyone's story and having them mesh altogether. Yeah, and it was everything back to and everything we've back together, and that Steinbrenner just running through the building, looking for calzones and looking for Costanza's so funny I have him on my list. I like, but I know I don't like him as much as you That's all. Mac. Are you ready for a three way? Three way tie at five. So so 56 and seven here? Yes. So we have two that have identical scores Where I gave one of six You gave one of six. I gave one inmate you gave one to date. And that is a busy Mandelbaum and Uncle Leo. Izzy Mandelbaum. This simple enough Lloyd Bridges Mandelbaum Mandelbaum. You think you're better than me? I have said that Maura my life than anybody because of this character, he's less so I think he does pop up in a cock out. But it's really the English patient episode where he makes his money here, and I love that. Jerry's dad's rival makes the list because the Seinfelds just live their life in rivalries. And by the way, this is the B story of the episode. I know the best part. You think you're the number one dad Think world's greatest dad trumps that. The fact that all three generations of Mantle bombs end up in the E R. Majal Mandelbaum Mandelbaum Mandelbaum Mandelbaum. It's stuck. Also tied there is Uncle Leo. He's in 15 episodes. John Lesser One of the most quoted lines to ofjust, Jerry. Hello, hello and then the visual of him doing the pull ups where it says Jerry Helo on his rest is Jerry Hello, Jerry. I think you said Jon Jon Lester. By the way, it's Len Lesser. What did I say? Jon Lester. Pretty former sergeant is the same person. Aga Leo is everyone's gonna tell Kolia? Yes, Cheap Every always bragging about his son yells about everything on the side of Jerry. You mentioned cousin Jeffrey. Doesn't Geoffrey when going back on this is, I think as good as Bob Sacramento like over off screen presence, this onscreen presence of just Jerry hate, because not because it cousin Jeffrey, but because Uncle Leo got moved to a different part. He's supposed to be fixing that pack of next. And everyone has someone like that in their family. And that's why we love them because the characters relatable. Everyone knows that guy and then also tied with those two once again. Also at five. This is AH is a fiver. Upper Khyber High five. We'll get to that later. At number five also is J. Peterman. I had him at number four. You Adam at 10. Overall, 7 20 episodes. John O'Hurley. I really can't even pick one of his stories out. I just love how he does all of his incoherent, rambling run on sentence stories. They're all hilarious, every single one of them and way that Elaine reacts to all them where just middle the story's puts their head down and leaves. The room is so funny. I think that's why I maybe had him lower than you did is like Peterman's nothing without Elaine's reactions. I know they're a good foil for you What I think, then plays into why Elaine is so good on the show. Yeah, and John O'Hurley is great. He's always great. Any time you ever saw him. He was great. Peterman's a great character. Great idea for a character. He crushes it. But again, I think it's It's like 50 50 here. Elaine also makes Peterman also he buys all of Kramer's stories. Yes, that's true, too. Yeah, yeah, And then he sells them all back because he sells them all back because Elaine can now make up new stories from even though she still wanna Kramer stories in the first place..

"A venerable institution old Trieste marina boulevard for the last sixty plus years since the mid nineteen sixties way back. Fifty at any rate. Diane bell on the union hyphen Tribune today has a nice piece front page of local section. I still I'm one of the nineteen at the newspaper in the driveway. That on the Wall Street Journal everything else digital. So I'm working both worlds, but she really nice Pete's piece about the family went back to Larry Thomas itch. Larry's dad who started the. The, the restaurant and to work numbers in. He was a kid, and they finally decided to retire. He and Victoria, and their kids work there. And the whole bit. I mentioned this the end of the show last Friday, and it was rate watching people come out of the woodwork. In fact, some people frankly thought passed away and they showed up, so they're back. Again, old Trieste is one of a handful of San Diego restaurants back in the day and even even up until recent years, hundreds restaurants now. But if you were here in San Diego in the sixties, or in the seventies eighties into the nineties, especially there was a heyday. I it's certain restaurants, many of them. Now going like rain waters and loobox old Trieste is one of them and you talk about the quality you would drive by this place. I'm not sure that looks, we want to go in there because this kind of that, all that flashy, but it was a treasure, you got inside and you forgot whatever you had on your mind, and you could do business there as I often did you would run into. To have like five meetings in one that happened in the last week that I was over there. Once they kind of tried to subtly announce that they're closing, but Diane bell talks about when Larry's dad moved from San Diego to New York City, found few gourmet restaurants so they decided to start when nine hundred sixty three. And if you go to my Facebook page at Mark Larson media, you can see, like the original or or about the original menu with the pricing. That'll make you go. Wow. Stake. The flame was four fifty. Wow. So, by the way, when they opened the restaurant when the dad opened the restaurant, a local local judge friend said it's doomed to fail. It's a horrible place, while became the go to place, along with from that era loobox mysteries. Mysteries is still around in a different kind of a four-man Anthony star of the sea CASA Di Buffy, so they closed last Thursday after fifty six years old Trieste, but they had everybody there from Frank Sinatra, Anthony Quinn, evil knievel. He left the motorcycle outside. Orville redden Bacher the popcorn guru, a lot of others. The governor vice president Agnew was dining there and regulars included, attorneys judges car dealers business executives, contractors, and bankers notes, Diane bell, and then she has a lot of quotes from people. In a say the same thing that, that it's old Trieste was the office away from the office to cut a deal and signed paper, says Larry took over when his dad died in nineteen ninety eight. So there are a lot of gatherings their, that's the first play when I came to KFC be back in nineteen. Seventy six is a very small child. Paul Palmer, who was then the general manager and my boss and my mentor here. My first tour of duty took me there that's first place where I went San Diego. So I always had great fond memories, and you may have them as well. It will Trieste. But the new owners, I guess, plan to open a restaurant and not sure, I mean it's not gonna be it's there's never gonna be another old Trieste, so captured a lot of that you can see some of the photos and see Larry doing the, you know, the old fashioned way, signing and people calling with the reservations. For fifty plus years, and you have fifty six books. Oh, handwritten got the dirt on everybody. And it was really fun to see people just pack in the place and overwhelming the kitchen in that last week and four times over a week. Thanks to them again. I was going to mention it again because I did a little tribute late in the show on Friday, but it's worth reading. If you get the union Tribune or just go and find it online. Diane bells column today is all about old Trieste, and there's really great San Diego stuff in there. So if you're nudist San Diego, and you want to kind of know what makes this town, tick, and is still a very big very cosmopolitan town. But it's it's in the small town body,.
