And your book, two thirds of the way through because I need some affirmation that I'm not the crazy one. My late wife Denise used to say, we had a running joke. If you're crazy, do you know it? And I think it's a fair question. So when, for example, the New York City council votes unanimously to remove the statue of Thomas Jefferson because he owned slaves. When Lori Lightfoot poses maskless in a crowd full of people indoors violating her own mask mandate, all these things that keep happening over and over again, you and I know they're crazy, but Chad the $64,000 question for you as we begin this conversation, do they know they're crazy? I think the asylums are empty, Mike, I think they're running the street, not just running the street, but they're creating the policy and the culture we're living in. Unfortunately, we've given them a big voice. No, they don't know they're crazy. They think that this is their ideal. They think that they're doing something really good for the planet and doing things for the world that is absolving us all of our great sins of the past and history. Now, I think we're all at some level on the insanity spectrum. We have to be a little bit crazy just to make heads or tails of what we're seeing across the

"You think Lori Lightfoot cares that there's any pushback over her? Celebrating a WNBA, basketball teams win in the middle of a crowd indoors without her mask on. You think she cares? She just wants the police officers in Chicago fired. She wants to fire the cops. For not following the vaccine mandate. But she doesn't have to follow the mask mandate that she imposed. She's Lori Lightfoot. Biden doesn't need to follow the mask mandate that he imposed. He's Joe Biden. That's the point they know. You think Joe Biden doesn't know he's gonna get photographed? He's the president of the United States. You think somebody's gonna take his picture? Is he's walking through a restaurant? Well, of course they are. He doesn't care. Heck, Lori Lightfoot's picture. The one that she's sitting there grinning ear to ear in the crowd full of masked up people, you know why the people in the stands are mashed up 'cause they have to, 'cause that is the rules. But those rules don't apply to her. She's Lori Lightfoot. She's the mayor. His rules for thee not me. And they know it. She posted the picture. She doesn't care? But fire those police officers fire that Washington state football coach, fire that ESPN reporter fire that nurse fired that state trooper fire people who don't follow the Democrat rules.

Matt Rosenberg: There Is a Problem of Moral Authority in the City of Chicago

"I'm talking to matt rosenberg from chicago and the book is what next chicago. You're just telling us something really nuts. You're seeing that mayor lori lightfoot Was quoting john lennon's beautiful but insipid song. Imagine in response to some killings. Tell us more about that just so that we understand what in what context was she doing this right while i put it this way that she is channeling john lennon. She did not name him what she did. Say after a mass shooting. In which a number of people were killed was it's a whole essentially. She said it's a whole different ballgame if we don't have all these guns around and the absurdity of that is that it's the proclivity to shoot a gun for spurious reasons. That is the real issue here. I think common commonsense observers understand that so the hard part here is going back to a failure among parents. You know the hard part here to me is the issue of what i like to call in eric. This was growth experience for me. I had to confront. What is the central problem here. And i realized it's centered around something that i decided i would call moral authority. This is probably an area in which you have some experience of thinking and writing and and analyzing i realized it's a pretty basic definition what that what's constituted within that but there are maybe only five percent of chicago's one million households that are not living with moral authority but that's a large enough number to affect a tyranny of the minority which means it's not safe to be out on the streets which means that schools k twelve public schools are in state of disorder. Where police are required to be onsite breaking up fights guarding students against violence from other students. There's a great pressure on the county court system because of a small relatively small handful of miscreants who have an outsized effect on the city's so there is a problem of moral authority in the city

Who himself is a retired Chicago police officer. He clearly wanted nothing to do with life foot, according to two sources who were there. The father excoriated the mayor and blamed her for what had happened. One source said Lightfoot handled herself well. Obviously one of the PR flacks for her. As the father yell at her, she listened and treated him with respect. Then it was suggested Lightfoot's a few words to nearby grieving officers. But as she approached, they all walked away from her to the other side of the Bank of chairs turn their backs. On her. Sources said. Um And even her statement was so bizarre.

"Thank you mayor Lightfoot so I want to echo the mayor's excitement as we're looking ahead toward phase four but also emphasized that now is the time to remain cautious and remain conservative we've seen excellent progress through phase three and in fact we've hit our metrics even sooner than we thought that we would and that is during the time that we have cautiously reopened the idea is that if our city on a hole is on a downward trajectory from covert nineteen we have the space to be able to handle the increased opportunities for spread that the virus has as we re open if we look at all of our metrics these are the same metrics we've been following since the beginning they're the same metrics will continue to follow overall at this point we've been following new cases every day we've been following new hospitalizations new deaths and new emergency visits all of these have continued in a downward trajectory since early may we've been following our percent positivity that's the percent of the tasks that are positive among all that are done we had sat seven percent as our goal to move ahead into phase four we're actually just below five percent four point nine percent this morning we want to continue to see progress there but it's really been a major major step forward hospital capacity remains very good we've got fewer than half of the number of beds taken up by Kobe patients that were able to handle as a system and that continues to downtrend are testing capacity is back to where we needed it to be we want to be testing at a minimum four thousand five hundred tests per day just in Chicago that means that we're testing five percent of Chicago residents every month we will continue to be growing that continuing to be pushing testing where it needs to be but I want to emphasize that this progress that we have seen across cases deaths hospitalizations percent positivity has been across the city as the mayor pointed out yes we are still seeing cases in every zip code and yes we are still disproportionately seeing cases especially in our Latin acts in African American communities but the progress there has also been excellent the zip code that has the highest percent positivity at this point is down to fifteen percent and falling and we will continue to push to make sure that there are not zip code or race ethnicity race race ethnicity groups that are being left behind as we make progress overall as a city finally our response capacity this points to the ability of the public health department and our many partners to handle new cases to do the investigations to do the contact tracing to do the testing that needs to happen to make sure that we can stay in control we had set a goal here to make sure that within twenty four hours ninety percent of new covert nineteen cases would be assigned to investigators and we have met that metric I encourage you to visit the dashboard we have so much data available and all of the data that we see at the health department you can see and follow right along with us we have weekly totals entrance up there and I'll point to the fact that we've been seeing not just small decreases but big decreases continuing over phase three where we look just last week we had a total of over twelve hundred cases but that was almost a twenty five percent drop from the prior week consistent with what we've seen in weeks prior we had testing actually go up by about twenty seven percent in that prior week and some of that again was with the deep decline that we'd seen but we've come back up and not seen any change in the continued improvements either in cases or percent positivity dot similarly we had about a twenty seven percent drop from the week before there and then our percent positivity in one week had gotten down to five point two percent today it's four point nine but that was down from eight point six percent just the week before it's been really good consistent progress I encourage you especially when you go to the dashboard which I'll remind you is it chai dot gov slash cool bit dash or you can also as always get there from our coronavirus website and I encourage you to watch our daily data with us this is where when you pull that up you will see that first green number hopefully it stays green that means we're continuing to see progress that's our confirmed cases and that's a seven day average as of today pulled off the dashboard this morning we're at a hundred and sixty seven new cases per day on average you can see just from the prior day we were down by three percent we track this week over week but of course every day we're looking at it similarly today was the first day that we had a percent positivity below five percent we had been a five point one percent yesterday four point nine percent today I encourage you to watch along with us especially those new confirmed cases because these are what help us know what the ongoing risk is in Chicago so this is our overall graph I encourage you again I'm not going to pull them all up to show what they look like but broadly they all look like this very good decline since early may this is the new case counts the one we're most interested in but I want to highlight on the right there you'll see that there's a high incidence and a moderate high incidence mark and that's because just now Chicago finally is moving out of a high incidence meaning a high risk state for coalbed based on our population these are the national numbers that CDC follows if you look at national maps well we've been over two hundred cases a day which is where we've been since March we've been in a high incidence state Angelus now we're moving into that moderate hi state really good progress and one of the main reasons that we feel confident that we'll be ready to move ahead to stage four with the rest of the state at the end of the week I also want to point out what this what this point about high incidence and moderate incidence has to do with the actual risk that here in Chicago someone at a gathering of a given size will have an active covert nineteen infection so where we are now adding around two hundred cases a day we know that people are infectious for about ten days generally from the time that they first acquire cove it which means that at any given point we have around two thousand active infections that we know about here in Chicago however as you've heard me say before there are many many cases of covert nineteen in Chicago that are not diagnosed we know that because of our case fatality rate if you look about five percent of people in Chicago in Chicago who have been diagnosed with COPD have died we had about twenty five hundred das about fifty thousand cases but the actual mortality rate for covert is probably more like one percent or even less and that lets us know that there are many many more people who have mild symptoms or even no symptoms of cove it this is why it is so important that people are wearing those face coverings and keeping that six foot distance it is a given and it is the law that if you are feeling ill you must stay home so it's really these people who may not have symptoms but could be out in the gathering they need to take the precautions and so if you look based on where we are now with the assumption there are likely still around ten thousand active infections.

"I, designed different knives Early are el-sisi. You have there. It was a serious of sweet night. It just didn't end up going the way I wanted to of course, but it was a sweet sweet knife. I know it's can happen. Is GonNa be the one that some point in time so many takes it, but see now. Telling you there's these companies. They're all making pretty good quality stop. All these computer GEEKS. They've really got those CNC machines stop dialed so they can make some pretty close stop, but there is a collector out there. That doesn't want that. So they want. Don't want cookie cutter knife. At that four hundred other guys can happen the runner four hundred us as they wanted to be. Unique. One off, and so that's that's right. I'm fitting in there. No problem. Yeah, I believe, but I also believe that your designs are appealing across a broader spectrum that having having your designs within a with a regular consumers reach could be awesome and We look for future because I mean like I'm looking at this element, and this could be translated so many ways in a more affordable form I'm. That frankly as I can't like this this. This is a a dear possession, my knife collection but you know it's not every day. I spend that money on a knife and most people don't so I. I can see people really resonating with this design. So that's why not nothing like that happen I mean if they because it was made in the US. Made here and so there was an issue. He just call up an avid shot. Joe Interpreter needed. Does nothing like? Puppets and you don't have to worry about external. You don't have to worry about world politics. And Foreign Affairs you know when you're when you're doing your visit well. I think I think. Eventually. A head of steam will be built up around here to have that kind of an operation because I think there are plenty of designers in makers like yourself who could? Everyone could benefit by having a lightfoot in their in their pocket. And you know you, you might still be spending four hundred bucks for it from a from a US Oem, but It it's it's worth it and it's not spending two thousand bucks on a beautiful cherry piece, so. It's a way to get your designs in lot more pockets, you bet. That'd be great. You Bet all right I guess. I gotTa start a company now. Greg lightfoot. Thank you so much for coming on the knife. Junkie podcast again. It's been a pleasure I've had such a great time. Kinda getting a no this knife. The you're the element you made for me and breaking it in now. I feel like it's in that sweet spot, and it's truly mind though it hasn't come yet, but I'm sure it will because it's damn sharp. Thank you for coming out again. Hey, thank you happy again. It was great. You're listening to the knife jokey podcast.

Say mesmerized, but that's not the right word kind of fascinated by his lifestyle I. think it's a vicarious thing. I'm a right to live out there in the wilderness motorcycles and in a homemade sauna, sweet house and a knife building shop. He from my perspective, my suburban perspective, he's living the other life. Right if you will, but what I gotTa, say. I'm excited about about Greg's Small with some of his work, the Minnie pit boss now he he's you will always be working in his normal format. That sort of larger beef e tactical format. With the with the super sweet of materials, but now moving down to the pin, the Minnie pit boss. I'm excited to see how his designs translate into. What some might find a more pocketful format. I will carry around whatever I find cool, no matter how big or heavy, but. Some people have have different concerns so I'm interested to see how the the Minnie pit boss is received well. If you'd like to learn more about Greg Lightfoot, she can find them online at lightfoot knives dot com is also on instagram at Greg, lightfoot, one one-two-three three and again we mentioned the June Twentieth Town Hall where Mr Lightfoot joined us and also had a sneak peek into his collection of arrows and an Arrow heads, so that was kind of a kind of fascinating as well. Well got a very sneak peek on that, so you have checked out on the night. Junkies Youtube Channel again, dot com slash youtube so including Jim all I have to say is that as my element is has really become mine and broken in beautifully, but his thirty years thirty three years of experience and building these things is evident, and now it's wet, my appetite to try more there.

"Actually Dabble a lot in mountain, biking and building motorcycles I made up. I'm turning a sportster. Harley Davidson sports to into A. Adventure bike. which is not not a standard thing to do so i? I really love that like I can go and spend countless hours. Working on that bike in the just time just flies. We have a major amount by park out here where this it's all rolling hills with trees and grass. And Lots of water that you can drive beside and so on in. It's this phenomenal mountain biking here for the prairies like it's not Rocky Mountain downhills, but Rolling Hills and going down trails through the Bush. Start. Is Pretty Cool and the thing is I. Don't have to load up to go anywhere. I just go out. The door grabbed my bike and go riding. And that's that makes it so much better than if there's a better spot to go, you have to load up and drive there. That's a pain where you're. The best bit on this place so. I do a lot of that and I do a lot of arrogance shooting like I. I collect once again. Roy's cracking stuff I've got so much collections, but. High end air guns, they're precision, beautiful instruments that domain the noise you can set up at fifty yards as example, seventy five yards and shoot. and. Be deadly accurate, but you're not making a boat annoys. Screener everything away, and you know causing a problem that way. Do you hunt with that I mean? Can you collect food with? Their. You can hunt a guy hunt gophers like it's a curls. Meg, just gardening. I the hunting I've lost my boys, but if you'RE GONNA APPS use A. Gun that you could thirty is six or Something you can shoot with. But I find that with all up that I do hunting an which is way why it's not code getting hunting time takes a Lotta time. Getting done and my mind, sister in raises where. I sit up to shoot the air guns. I'm shooting a group. Five shot groups are sending eggs up at seventy yards in Washington blow up. Things. That are is instant gratification Stop go back to wherever up. DOING FOR HUNTING IS A. Is a big draw process to do correctly. I used to do it lots last year. Are raised a boatload of pheasants. Dog that Loxley flush them. Get some shooting phases fund. It's not that hard. But raising the birds up and. William Goal and helping the dog wash the dog. Oh grab the stuff like that is is pretty good. I have a really nice. Talk, Shaw Browning's shotgun. That's a real nice gun, so I enjoy shooting, because it feels great and looking at it while not shooting suspect is so it. Don't actively that I do a lot sporting clays, another one I do a lot likely sporting places well also. How does this okay so this is your daily life. You go outside. You make knives obviously, and then you go outside you work on your motorcycle. You Hunt Pheasants that you raise you collect. You said you're mad collector. Do you still have a knife? Collection doesn't knife maker. Such as yourself still have knife collection. You believe it or not I designed. Back, in the day for Caribbean life in tool called the urban shark. Gets is looking at two of them right now. That's that's my knife collection up here in my room, they. Don't collect London Nice I I have been kicking around, but it's more you know. This is the one I use to. Clean Fashions this is the one I use to got a pig. I don't really have. You know a setup beautiful lies and they talk about but. Short sharp skis. Shorts teeth. All sitting just make gug is over I really like that. I'm not surprised by that because that's your logo and that's it you've you've mentioned before that. That's what a lot of your designs are based on the sort of biological shapes found in most sharks primarily. and. I grew up, I think I mentioned this to you. I grew up drawing madly and I went through about A. Ten, year period of time where all I wanted to draw with sharks and I knew all the different sharks and and so it's always resonated with me but so. How does this life of adventure I I will call it that because I live a life of suburbia and I I love my life. Don't get me wrong, but you can't help it. admire someone else's lifestyle and it's so different. Different and so seemingly idyllic. How does all of that feed into your knife making your knife designing and I'll preface that by saying, even though I asked you to make this tactical knife for me I am repeatedly stunned by the beautiful knives you make imposed on instagram with the with the with the materials, especially the combination of natural materials in manmade materials. How does this lifestyle that you lead inspire these nights? Basically Kuzma head is not full of. Despair. wishing. I was someplace else and all that. It's like. Everybody wants to go someplace already there, so it's like. If it's time to design. You know you sit out and. Go. Things to start the flow as example then and then being teamed up. With a couple of designers, a jv odor by Lewin Really Guy Laurean, Arnold divide who designed the catalyst the endorphin. Those designing guys, also if I need to have some exam. Having your brain just isn't designing well. It's cool to build to call. Those guys have something not sweet on my way that we can talk about. tweak a little better or whatever, and then I go ahead and start making it. The cool thing is though material combinations that I use an materials that I use the guy specialize in natural materials. The Guy can do woods ivory Pearl those.

"To look back. The knife has to be perfect with half open. Open everything ask. All the time rate well well Greg I think there's some debate about whether that half stop. It needs to be flat. Kind of seems to be a useless anal retentive sort of detail I. Mean I I like it just the same gce I have a small collection of great eastern cutlery joints, and some of them do that and some of them don't I have one case knife that does that end the all the others that don't. Have a flush back spring on the half. Stop are still awesome I think that is. One of those things that collectors like drop shut action. He dropped. Selection is not me Okay I. Totally not me like you design a knife to have to have that drop type action. The pivots gotta be in a certain spot. To make that happen so a lot of the night I do. Not designed to do that like. The purpose of having that big thing in your hand there. So that that huge. Personal Defense Monster is GonNa flop shot. Well Yeah. I don't think the drop shut. Instinct comes necessarily from the the self defense or tactical ended things, but incidentally this knife you're element is like is nearly dropped shut, but that's only got a big heavy blade in ball bearings, but you. Get enough weight out front it'll. It'll come down, but like now. I'm just just got gone with jv Wyatt. Called the pit boss was the first model that I ever did with him. The MINNIE pit boss. The men pin I'm calling it. Is Very very short, so. You don't have. The ability to do that, but the rice can be extremely cool anyways so. I'M GONNA have those ready to show you who so you say very very short, but your knives a ten towards the foreign blade, or or close to what is what is very very short in reading your book Okay Yeah Readers. For me is, that's I usually small. They used to do as three and a quarter. So does it maintain the same heft? My Element is point seven eight inches thick. Does it mean I mean you'd have that same sort of beefy nece, or is it a? Scale everything downscale over three. It's kind. Efficient upon the your hand so. You kinda have to scale accordingly like it's pretty hard to. It'd be like holding a Breck if I if I did slim it down and stuff. So, but you know. I decided that like a lot of the guys they're. They won't carry that honking element there. It gets the taking off and play with it, but but he put it in your pocket. Walk around with that. It's it's you know it's a pretty big night, so. The trend is going both ways I still liked that. Is and some people, want. A small one, so you cut half to. Go with out there amount mind changed my format, a little bit and doing something different and totally different for me is a three inch blade. Yeah, but it's still in the Greg lightfoot language, and it's still a greg lightfoot to me. It's it's it's no different. It's just an an issue of scale and. I know what you mean about carrying the element it does depend I. I wouldn't carry this with dress slacks, but in in a pair of jeans, and I'm not a skinny wear. This thing is is awesome. However, sometimes, just because it's, it's prized. Prized things you think about where you're going or what? You're going to be doing needs side. Maybe I'll bring. My can thrash on and won't be all nervous about you know. If you're in public and you pull that out. Open. Like somebody thinks you know the next thing you can apply. Your jeans is a handgun. That they already equate that could be a tool so much as something terrifying right so you. That's why it's good to. Say is sort of pick where you're GONNA. Go and whatnot if you're gonNA, carry us this spot. You'RE GONNA go so with the slip joint you made. The double edged the double bladed slip Joint I'm curious. What were the blade types and I'm going to ask before you get into it. I'm going to guess. Modified Clip Point and modified Warren Cliff. Thought we had A, we had a a bully style. A bowie was. The other one is that. Cutlass like a spade on the end I. Don't remember the name of that. Is it the SPE blade? Yeah the one. For spaying animals. Back so a lovely. trapper sort of an idea like. See the thing is with Joel. He just would look at a picture and then would make that knife from the picture. He never never had any training on the insides. You just learned that way so. Making all springs in man it's. My Spencer. Is Slam shot when I think? So you. This is lilacs nothing to make. Breadwinners always for me anyway. It was a some guys that are really good, but you know. Will you know the collectors of of custom slip? Joints are looking, and they're looking hard just like the collectors of anything are looking looking hard at their details so I could see how you're moving in from a different realm of knife, making into that you have to, before you release anything out there into the world of slip joint collectors. You GotTa make sure it passes muster. I could see that yeah, very important that statement right there. So you made a trapper. That's a spay blade and a clip point, and it's a Jack Setup meaning. It's on one pivot at one side right? Yeah, guidelines. You Bet so. The two times we've spoken I've seen Eros behind you in in various quivers. You have a lot of Eros. And your last name is lightfoot, and and it makes me wonder. Do you have a native American native north, American. That that would be greg standing on the road or Greg by the fire that'd be Indian named like Mike, foot is from England. Oh, it's it's. My grandfather came West. England major into collecting custom handmade bridal snakeskin backed bows, so I got we back up and say that again. You're into collecting senator. They're called. They're called self bows. They're both has made a single piece of wood. Rattlesnake skin on the box of them. was just a backing material as in actual rattlesnake skin. Like could springy. It's more of a cool look. Don't panic. It was there was senior. Something like that, but this is not like. These are straight beasts. The would I actually liked the way arrows look so I have the one display all over the place. And the here. To sort of see him back there, but when you shoot lots, you break, lose loss of them, so you need to have. Lots, Eros around, but I was GONNA. Say So. You live out on one hundred sixty seven acres of Alberta Ranch, would you? Would you do when you're not making knives I? Guess you shoot a lot of bows and arrows. What else I?.

Didn't you collaborate with that <unk> within that. Make someone someone make that other than you. There was a company called timberline knives said yes that may start to make it and then went under by shortly after actor thing came home never never even really got to go anywhere. They also made the goblin right the that sort of famed curvy tactical tactical knife that was made by so many different people. I think kelli ward and designed. I think that they did like chile. Worrying was a night fighter guy and overnight to away back in the day they did a little knife and it was called the urban shark and that now is a rock and roll highschool piece it were they.

She delivered a brief speech to lawmakers in which e introduce yourself like they didn't know who she was. Hi, everybody just wanna introduce myself. I'm only Lightfoot I won the election for mayor of Chicago kind of historic fame much. So right. All right. But then she said, we all agreed that the city of Chicago and the state of Illinois have a once in a generation opportunity to chart a new way forward together. I hope to meet many of you on this trip and in the future. So yes, we ever work cut out for us. And I am confident that we can collectively rise to the challenge and make meaningful progress. I look forward to working with you. So that we can achieve the safe and economically sustainable communities that are residents need from Rockford tissue Kogyo to Takeo and every other community between thank you for this opportunity. And I look forward to working with you. She's cayrol. Right. That's very important. Very even though. She's not the governor doesn't hold statewide office. Still has to know gotta know she's not the governor yet. He did meet with the governor though, Ted very productive already striking of great relationship can have dinner at the governor's house with their spouses, right? Yeah. Yep. I would say that. There's a lot of tough stuff ahead for the state of Illinois in the city Chicago in terms of meeting their financial obligations. But you know, you have new new is on the problem, and we'll just have to see if they can they're up to the challenge. Take all the politics of the left right politics out of it that the banks don't care if you're a democrat or Republican they want their money. And so there that's that's going to be happening. Hey, speaking of that. There's a breaking news story. We'll get to number four here second. But there's breaking news story that the national acquirer who we were discussing. We were earlier in the in the web show. Confessions of. Journalism is what we were doing today. Yes. Yes. And the the national Quere is about to be sold. Wait. Yes. David pecker is going to sell it. Imminently. It said here because of his relationship with the president. Now, you wonder. Which federal prosecutors said, hey, listen, you might wanna ownership in this out, you there may be more problems here than you think. But that's very interesting area. She comes to council today. The end of an air is a final meeting over which mayor Rahm Emanuel will preside. He will be leaving office next month. In his speech. He talked about Chicago meeting that challenge. On may eighteenth twenty eleven I said, and I quote, we have difficult things to do. But I believe that by working together being honest with each other. And facing the choices we have to face. We can handle these challenges because in everyone of these challenges are opportunities. The opportunities to do the big things for the people who elected us. Very heartfelt and emotional. Yeah. One thing about. Social about about going back and rather procedural things. I get it. I don't think he's been bad at all. We have seen worse. And he. All the different things that the city has got in counter. I mean, we're still standing and we've got we've had incredible growth expansion. And and we've got there there are not in population. But in business and things and they're important things happening in the city. Good things having this city. No question, but the emotional and everything and one thing that gets me is he's also can also be so too brutal at the same time and so forth. Yeah. So reminds me of those scenes where somebody's tied to a chair in a warehouse, and they're about to get tortured or executed by their captor right before the superhero arrives. And then the. That the captor is like crying and laughing at the same time whether what they're going to do. It's sort of feeling I get sometime and backups.
