You got here we go. Come on. I hope you can you hear me now? Yes. Should I turn my speaker on? I have to, uh, go ahead. Go ahead. And if that makes it easier, Go ahead, Ali. Good. Okay, now I'm hearing you, right? I really wanted to tell you. I First of all, I wanted to thank you for having that doctor on. She was wonderful, and I'm getting my second shot Sunday and I'll let you know how it goes. Is that the greatest surprise if you have a little bit of a reaction, But as I think the doctor probably reassured you and others that Everything. Everything will be fine. And thank God you're getting the shot this early. Yeah, Yeah, I'm a I've never had problems with shots. But also, I'm honored the same rooting for Tom Brady, of course, but, um This Facebook thing. I have obviously different software on my iPhone. And on my Mac book Air and the Mac Book Air just isn't working. And, um, uh Morita there. She's very clever. Hopefully she can get through to them, but I've Bombarded them with, um Um My complaints, and one of them is I noticed. They put a a period between my first and last name. I didn't I You know that. And then when I I They offered me that a Z user name and I said No. And then when I put in the name of that I use, which has no period in it. It said. That belongs to somebody else. And I guess you got the same. Well, I didn't. But that was Linda in Ipswich, which to me is nuts that they can't figure out that you're calling as they said. I did get a little bit of it because now I have found myself. In effect, walked out of a Facebook page that I administer on the administrator of the page. For years. I've been the person who has allowed people to join and have it never kept anyone out. But apparently when they changed their algorithm or whatever they did to my page And blew it up literally blew it up. It apparently no longer recognizes me. As an administrator, you actually were able to reach a human being and talk to a human being. I know. Um, Now, first of all, they did one of these upgrades a few months ago, and I went back to the old version, but they're not even offering that now, but I just even their help. Uh, Uh, Method is so complicated. I just un Farraj them with, you know, um, very frustrated to Eileen. I don't know what to make of it. Hopefully, we'll talk for the rest of the hour. But this we might switch over to the Donald Trump issue attend, But I'm looking for some people who might be able to give people like you and me and Linda from Ipswich. Some hope That there's someone out there. I mean, each of us represent. I think an asset to Facebook. Obviously they, however many subscribers they have or how many members they have around the world. We represent one and I realized that in a sea of millions, one doesn't represent a lot, but they should take care of their Customers with a little more tender loving care than they've shown you, me or Linder in Ipswich. Yeah, I leave. Have a great weekend. We will hopefully talk with you next week. Okay. Okay. All right. Have a great night. Let me go to Tom in West Virginia. Tommy, you calling on Facebook? Yeah, I am Hood and you know, uh, I really wish I could look into my crystal ball. And I saw the Facebook movie. You know, when they took off in 2000 and four what have you And If I could wish something in this life at this point with Social media I would hope that someday. In a dark calorie and dark alley in Harvard Square and Cambridge. Mark Zuckerberg would take a shortcut, and he would meet up with a winkle Voss twins. Dr Berg is a prime example off what a really expensive lawyer can Accomplish in this nation. I'm familiar with that in this murder trial. I am familiar with the story of the Waco which it found they pronounce it Waking. Winkle Winkle. Voss Twins. Couple of kids that the only sweat they ever broke white kids from privilege that they were really into rowing on the Charles River. Okay, people that it might in my day. Um, I didn't go to spring break in high school. I wash dishes that Hale's Diner in Foxboro, Massachusetts, and a greasy spoon truck stop. However, I do have sympathy for them that they came up with a wonderful idea. That essentially got stolen from them. And when you hire really good attorneys, Look what happens. You become a billionaire. I guess I guess American dream and it also could have could have a tremendous impact on What other people see and create a platform which claims to be neutral and has protections with the call, You know, section 2 30 protections and You don't have to abide by your pledge of neutrality. Bingo. A brother way. How is Massachusetts doing as far as the pandemic? Because I still own a house? Well, not well, not well, this man. In fact, I checked very sorry to hear that. I checked tonight. I checked tonight. I'm gone Wednesday. We were 40. We were ranked 47th in the country. Way on Lee ahead and the metric that we were using is the number of vaccines that have been distributed to us. And the percentage of those vaccines that had actually gotten into the arms of someone meaning had been administered. So it's It's almost like a batting average, meaning you know, a state like California was getting five or six million, and of course, they were administering million's. We were getting we've gotten, I guess about little over a million 1.2 or something like that. And we have slowly but surely come up. But as we have come up, at least I think one of the states that was behind us now his past us. So we have no longer ranked 47th. But as of tonight, we arranged 48th. I think we're ahead of Alabama. I'm sorry to hear that, because to West Virginia's done extremely you have in West Virginia you've administered about 90%. 90% of your the shots that have become available to you. Your status additional state here for rural state has done extremely well. And you know it's It's odd because to drive from Say, uh, Marlins in West Virginia to the Charleston, West Virginia, All right. As the crow flies. It's It's maybe 150 miles, but driving wise takes three days for five hours. Sure, because the West Virginia's oh, and and heels and all of that we have the most. I think we're the third most densely populated state in the country. And with all of the communities that I know you're familiar with, including Brockton, Fall River, New Bedford, Lawrence Lowell, Boston was to Springfield, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera, Um, you would think that they would have been a more efficient Distribution here in Massachusetts today. Finally today finally Governor Baker to his credit, although it's a little late announced that they were going to have a phone bank available. So that people over the age of 75, who were having trouble getting an appointment via the computer will actually be able to talk to a human being. Now they should have been thinking about establishing a phone bank. September October in it should have been in place and ready to go from day one. Yeah, Just by the way, my neighbor in Brockton, who looks after my place, he's 82 years old. Okay, eyes he a guy that text messages and gets on Facebook, Not alive. Computer? No. Uh, you know, and God bless him. I've been blessed. I've never had buyers are moist buying a place in Brockton..

"Yeah. I've talked to a lot of folks who have very high opinion of mighty men and the job that he's done. And I, I have no in Boston to shame of pioneer institute where we're public policy institute very interested in education trying to schools, high red. And we just looking at the plane faxing, you know. What is this, a stain -able for a for a university system to go through this massive expansion at this time, you know, and they and I think that kind of the chickens have come home to roost. Because the financial pressures coming on the university now because I don't think it's a stain -able. Yeah. They're going to have to do something about that. Definitely. Are you? I'm not sure if this is your area of expertise, but the legislature did something recently that was pretty troubling to me when it comes to charter schools, they blocked. A New Bedford charter school. From expanding into a new building. They wanted to wanted to shift to a new campus. There's an old public school building, I think, and legislature blocked it from even from them even trying to do it. And the way they did. It was too, you know, procedural roadblocks put up see roadblocks legislature. So it wouldn't even come for a vote were you guys following that or? Phone, very, very carefully. Yeah. Pyner institute with was one of the leading groups kinda advocating for products cools. In fact, at pioneers, to one of my qualities, working here is Tom Birmingham, used to be the Senate president. He wasn't. He was one of the agents. So the education reform act that led to an casts and try to school. So with you know that try to school that you're talking about into Bedford is fantastic charter school. I mean it is it's famously good and the waiting list to get into. It is gigantic. You have to win a lottery to get into it and the, the mayor down there who who was. I think he's a Harvard grad, he's a. Originally. He was he was very few of in his praise for this particular school. But then at the end of the day, you know, it's, it's like the, you know, collective bargaining labor the teacher's union, so and so forth death against charter school. So to me, it's not. Right. You know, I mean these inner city kids in bed for those kids are up against it, especially young coming up fourteen fifteen years old. It's tough world. And so if there's an opportunity for, for family to send their kid to a school that's rank high in the state, it's like a little gym right in their backyard. I don't get why they're shutting down. It's like shooting yourself in the foot. It's terrible. You concern about the way the legislature went about it to not even to allow vote basically blocking it from even coming up. Well, you know, I, I served in the state legislature for seventeen years. Yeah. And it doesn't surprise me that the legislature would do that because they've been they've been like a, you know, an eye in curtain against charter schools, because there's so much political pressure by teachers, not to not Acilitator it. And if but back in the day in the time that, like if president Birmingham the Mark Roosevelt, and those people, you know, these are urban liberals, they, they were urban liberals, but they, but they would twenty to find a way to have people live in inner cities, like Brockton, you know, Lawrence New Bedford, Springfield, Lawrence, Lowell chicopee that we're the school systems are really rough to give the parents and the kids chance to go to a good school. I mean they saw in that view and it's really too bad that the leadership is not. There people rise up like we had back in the day. Yeah. They instead they have people seemingly do what the unions want them to do. This is not to say that charter schools, and they don't. They're I'm sure they're bad charter schools, as well as good ones. But, you know, it just seemed like the way they did it. That was a little sneaky, the legislature, did it because they knew the time frame, they knew the timeframe of that, that, that they could delay. And they just kept delaying delaying it till they couldn't do it anymore. And what they wanted to do was to go away from a lottery system. Is that correct? The school wanted to go away from the lottery and do like more of a local school choice gotta thing, right? That's right. You know, we down in New York, there's a, there's a city councillor down, who, who retired and she started about ten charter schools in New York. And they were really, really. She's an African Americans. The constituency student body was almost all of them African American Hispanic and they were like you know, is ranked in the top one percent of all the city schools in the city did the same thing. They said no, they, they block them from a new facility. They victim from the facility all the pressure came on it. But man, but there was a March on Sydney hall, and they think they sent like two hundred buses full of people up to Albany in New York fight it. You know what I'm saying is, I wish people would down in New Bedford in the state would rise up and say, hey, you know, why are you depriving families of this opportunity? It's just not. Right. It's I think it's very unfair and unwise. Right.
