190,000 Invalid Ballots in Los Angeles County
"Out of curiosity, do you think there were a 190,000 invalid ballots? What I know from the recall is that they actually pre qualified a huge number of those ballots. By that, they had a company that actually knows what a valid ballot looks like, looked at the ballots that were coming in and pre qualified the one. So in other words, if you didn't write the full nut named Los Angeles, if you just wrote LA, that would be invalidated, but the company that pre qualified it would see that, send it back to the original signer of the petition and say please write out Los Angeles. So do I believe there's a 197, a 190,000 signed petitions that are invalidated invalid. I don't. Do I hope that they can find 47,000 more on this appellate process? Absolutely. And what I know for absolute sure is that if I become the attorney general, I can go ahead and do for all the people who sign these ballots who have such issues with George gascon, I can use the power of the California attorney general's office to come in and reverse the policies that he has done that are so dangerous and destructive for Los Angeles.
Los Angeles, You're Getting Everything You Deserve
"It's done. They're not going to recall George gascon. So Los Angeles, you get everything you deserve. The soaring crime, the epic homicide rates, the fear that everybody has, guess what? You deserve it all. If you're too stupid to dismiss these radicalized George Soros funded prosecutors, then you deserve it. I'm sorry, and I know there's a lot of good and decent and normal people in California. I'm not trying to condemn everybody. How hard should it have been to get enough signatures to put it on the ballot to fire George gascon? So, listen, victory is not assured in this great country of ours. You can make the case that California is a lost cause. And perhaps you'd be right. But ultimately, ultimately, take you must take nothing for granted.

Salem Radio's Dennis Prager on the Importance of Talk Radio
"Have written an amazing piece on your 40th anniversary of talk radio on the things you have learned in those four decades, 5 big lessons. I want to talk about a couple of them, but first, it's not in the article, but you told me how it all started and this peculiar weekend show where you had guests from different denominations. Will you tell us about that show at the beginning, Dennis? Because I love the concept. I began radio at the 32, I think 30, 34 years of age. And it was a blessing changed my life, obviously. There was an extremely popular show in Los Angeles on the ABC radio station. And I mean, so popular that eventually it became the most popular show in Los Angeles, despite the fact that it was broadcast on a Sunday Night, the least likely time for people to listen. But it dominated radio. It was called religion on the line, and it was dominant before I became the host. I just increased it, but I acknowledge it was I knew about it because everybody knew about it. A priest a minister in a rabbi would appear different ones each week, Catholic Protestant Jew, and the host. The host that I that they were thinking of letting go was secular and anti religious. And they were looking for a new host. I don't know if that was the reason, but they were. And by sheer good luck, my name was brought to the general manager of the station. And George green was a legend in radio and for whom I have only deepest gratitude for my life's journey, so he told this woman Roberta Weintraub May she rest in peace. The head of education in Los Angeles said, I need somebody who knows religion knows how to speak, but it's not a clergyman. And she said, I can't believe you're asking that. I just heard this kid at this Jewish institute here in Los Angeles. I went for a weekend there. I heard him lecture, he's terrific. And they said, oh, good, let's try him out. And in the middle of the show, the program director slipped me a note, I wish I had, I still had it. It changed my life. Tell them you'll be on next week.
"los angeles" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"The virtues of the logo that you covered the green monster with the 99 All-Star Game. Well, buster, I'm gonna correct you because I did not do the 99 All-Star Game logo. However, you would have been correct if you would have referenced the 90th anniversary of Fenway Park, logo, which was in 2002, and a couple of other things along the way. But David is an amazing man with an amazing story and I'm looking forward to getting up to Fenway. Sometime later this year, quite possibly after the all star break. So always a great trip, even when the Red Sox are scuffling along and not able to score runs. Yeah, you're going down bitter boulevard this morning. There's no question about it. Before we get started, we're talking about that game last night when they were shut down by the reds just as they were shut down by the Baltimore Orioles. Four losses and 6 games against those two teams. Hey, it's like it's as if it was 1975 and the reds in the Orioles were powerhouse franchises and speaking of which you and I talked about this a little bit before we jumped on to the last reds win at Fenway Park. Game 7 of the 1975 World Series. I was a very bitter young man then when that had happened buster. Very well. Very bitter ten or 11 year old. Yeah, I was 11 years old. I was pissed off. It was not a good situation. But time goes by, you get other bad memories, good memories of outweighed those. I never thought I would see a championship in my lifetime, much less for, much less be it three of them. So like baseball is kind of a, it's a metaphor for life. It's very forest Gump like, it's a marathon, not a sprint, and we shall see what we shall see, and hopefully the Red Sox can score some runs. I was telling June Lee about the city connect uniforms that were revealed last week, you know, in particular that one with the rockies, how my son absolutely loved them. What did you think? Oh, I love the rockies once. And you and I have been talking about this for the last year and a half, whatever it's been. And I know Julie loves to write about city connected forms. As much as I hate my Red Sox city connect uniforms, the Red Sox out there, looking like the yellow minions, I love the rockies. I'm a big license plate guy. All right, just like come at me here, buster. And I think that these uniforms capture something that is distinct and very Colorado and they get into the weeds with a lot of the superfluous details that no one is ever going to see. What's inscribed on the jock tag and all that. But the immediate impact of these and that green color, which you see a lot of that green color at beautiful course field, I think they nailed it. Yeah. That's clear, June, June, absolutely feels the same way. And I'm sure, you know, as we go forward with more of those, we're going to be hearing more from you about those uniforms. All right, let's talk about this week's phantom franchise. So buster, the St. Louis browns, scheduled a press conference for 1 p.m. on December 8th, 1941 at Lyman's cafe in Los Angeles, California. The big announcement involved the move of the moribund browns to LA, starting in 1942. The brownies had recently concluded their 12th consecutive losing season. And they shared a ballpark with the Saint Louis Cardinals, an excellent franchise that commanded the attention of their city. Brown zoner Don Barnes had quietly worked out the details of the moved west, which included a deal with the then minor league angels to purchase the team and stadium. Eager to have St. Louis to himself, Cardinals owner Sam Braden would kick in a quarter of a $1 million to help send the browns packing for the Golden State. The Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce guaranteed a minimum season attendance of 500,000 for the first 5 years, including an offer to make up the difference if the guarantee was not met. Travel schedules were carefully worked out and barns lined up the preliminary approval of his fellow American League owners. The Los Angeles browns were set to become the first and it will be franchise to change cities since 1903 and the first big league club west of St. Louis. A permanent stadium was to have been built in Long Beach to host the ball club. On December 7th, 1941, barns arrived in Chicago, where a meeting of American League owners was to be held the following day to grant formal approval. However, that morning, Japanese forces staged a surprise Attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, decimating the U.S. Pacific fleet and cut a catapulting the United States into World War II. Barnes made his presentation to the league the following day as scheduled, but he asked his fellow owners to reject the proposal. Our dream was shattered, he later told the sporting news with the scare of a West Coast invasion we realized at once that Los Angeles was no place for the browns. The other owners agreed voting unanimously to keep the browns franchise in St. Louis where they won their only a pennant in 1944 before finally relocating to Baltimore ten years later and where they now play as the Orioles. But today buster, we salute the Los Angeles browns. They are this week's phantom franchise. So do you think Todd, I based on the information you have, they would have kept that name because as you said it, I thought, boy, that it would have just landed with a thud. And what we think of as Los Angeles today, the browns, and then I was also thinking that, yeah, the Dodgers nickname doesn't really work necessarily. Either that doesn't make any sense given the history of that nickname, but can you imagine? Well, it's interesting buster. Research the name of the history of the Los Angeles Lakers. And I was in LA last week. I saw silver Lake, not a lot of lakes in Los Angeles, but they're wearing Minneapolis where the Lakers moved from. And I found a quote from the, I believe, publicity director of the Lakers at that time. And he said, you know, why change the name of the team, the Dodgers kept their name when they moved to LA, the Giants kept their name. The braves kept their name when they moved from Boston to Milwaukee. This is what was done. And certainly 1941, no team moves to speak of in major league sports back then, very few, you know, I'm thinking NHL none in Major League Baseball as I pointed out. So they probably would have.
"los angeles" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"Baseball for ESPN. He's been to a lot of games in Fenway Park in June. Last night, watching what Joey Votto went through, you know, hitting two balls at the absolute edge of the home run boundaries. First and right field on that wall that's in front of the visitors bullpen and then to hit the one on top of the green monster and have the same thing happen. I mean, would you back me up that this might be something you would never see again in the history of baseball. It might be the most unlikely thing that's ever happened in the history baseball. Yeah, because if you take like ichiro, for example, a dude who knows how to place a baseball anywhere. I'm not sure that if he just was tossing up a baseball and just trying to do this that he would be able to do that, especially because the outfield walls that Fenway Park are so weird to begin with like the one in right field is already so low compared to most ballpark and then obviously you've got the green monster and left field. To be able to place balls with that level of specificity and also have them bounce back, like the odds of that are probably greater than one in a million, one in 5 million, 10 million. It's just something I've never seen before, I mean, you rarely see that in general with just one of the walls. So you see that happened twice is something you just never imagined seeing happening. For one player in one game, right? Just crazy. And I mentioned in the open about how Joey before the game was being so specific, he was turning around and asking one of the staffers on the reds. Okay, how hard was the exit velocity in that ball? Tell me, what was that? And he's getting the news back, one O 6, one O 7, one O 8. So he was so locked in. I can't even imagine how he processed that game and what happened last night. It was better for him. I'm sure that the fact that the reds won for the Red Sox at four losses in 6 games against the Baltimore Orioles and the Cincinnati reds who supposedly are two of the worst teams in baseball. I can't figure out the Red Sox, June. Yeah, it kind of reminds me so far of 2019. And maybe a little bit more extreme than 2019 where the Red Sox were kind of middling around 500 the entire season, they would go through stretches where they looked like a team that could go into the playoffs and make some waves. And then they would go through stretches where they would lose games against teams they should win. So to see them drop all these games against the Orioles and the reds. It's like, what are you doing, guys? I mean, this is a team that made it all the way to the ALCS last year, had an off season where they add Trevor story. I think I was talking to some folks around Fenway Park a couple of weeks ago about how lucky the team was that the Celtics and the bruins were winning as much as they were going deep into the playoffs because if that hadn't happened, the pressure on this team would have skyrocketed, especially on Trevor story and story was able to kind of hit his way out of that slump and I think kind of helped ride the Red Sox into a streak where they were getting closer to 500. But there's so many parts of this team that I think are kind of exacerbating one another, the struggles in the bullpen, putting more pressure on the offense and putting more pressure on the starting rotation that opens a disaster. I mean, there's no way around that. I think people around Fenway and people who work for the Red Sox will admit that this group came into the season already thinner than they probably should be in a division that's as competitive as they are. But the biggest surprise has been Matt Barnes being as bad as he has been. And I've talked to some of his former teammates where they kind of talk about how he's a guy who is one of the most talented relievers in baseball from a stuffed standpoint, but he gets in his head so much, especially when he struggles that one bad outing can start to spiral into multiple bad atoms and then he's too hard on himself because he's putting more pressure on the rest of the bullpen and the rest of the bullpens already spread thin. And they're really relying on guys like Tanner how to be kind of the bullpen anchor to replace a guy like Garrett who's obviously down the rotation. They've had John shriver be very good over the course of the last few weeks. But Barnes is really the guy that I think is the key for this team to be able to kind of help at least relieve some of those bullpen issues. And they just can't depend on the bullpen right now to keep a lead late in the game. So if you're John Henry and that's your job now, I'm going to make you John Henry. Owner of the Red Sox. At some point in the next two months, you have to decide whether or not to be buyers or sellers. And let's face it. If the Red Sox decide to become sellers, they're going to be like a one stop shop for all these contending teams because they have so many guys who were potentially free agents in the fall and you start with Xander bogarts who could opt out of his deal. JD Martinez went into yesterday with the highest batting average in baseball, all those starting pitchers, you know, Michael waka and ridge hill and Nathan of Aldi, Christian basque as their catcher. If you are John Henry, today, what's your instinct in terms of whether or not you're going to be by or seller? Well, if I'm John Henry, I'm first saying Muhammad a lot to a deal for Liverpool. You locking him up. But I mean, I think you make a great point in that. The Red Sox have all these perfect trade pieces to help improve a contender. I think Xander is kind of at the center of all of this as a franchise face and the Red Sox fan base still despite the Mookie trade relatively going decently well not being a disaster for them in terms of the return that they got. That sour taste is still in their mouth. And this has been kind of a decades long relationship between the fan base and the front office. Specifically, the.

Well I hate to sound like a malcontent but you know we my boyfriend of seventeen years John. I Gregg do not celebrate the Valentine's Day and even when I was a single guy did not celebrate this Valentine's Day I think it's a conspiracy to discredit single people right. I mean it just makes them feel like shit. So why would I do not want to be complicit in that at all I don't know if there's any ruminations you have about how to be in the long-term couple if there's much difference between straightaway? I used to have such admiration for long-term gay couples because it does seem like on the face of it. It's much harder to stay in a same sex relationship first of all. You're less likely to have children right. Which as we know. That's that's a real gluing. Agent fails marriages And second of all there are many more opportunities to cheat At least for for gay men. I won't speak for for Lesbians but I don't know over the years. That kind of thinking has has grown to seem simplistic to me and also it overlooks a lot of the great aspects of being in a same sex relationship. I mean this idea that you know typically in a same sex relationship. You've doubled your wardrobe and that's a really lovely thing when you think that you know. Most couples fight about money. The fact that I don't have to buy clothes I can just borrow one of Greg's sure it's that's that's money as they say never thought of that.

You know 'cause yeah that's the thing and I think it might first relationship. We really didn't talk about deep things and never fought because we were repressed that yeah good no end that can be repression. It can be a fabulous thing. I mean when you think about any argument or fight. It's almost always because one person spoke out impulsively whereas if you sit on those feelings you know. Sit on it for a couple of hours. You're either gonNA realize you don't feel as strongly as you thought you did or you're going to frame your response in a much more palatable way than you might have. That is absolutely true.

Greenwich yes cards of La and suddenly. Everybody's this kid has six different learning disabilities in this trump era. It was these Democrats and these Hollywood celebrities for for all the good progressive causes that they were the ones self petard hoisted. I have always said that college admissions is the rubber hitting the road for Rep progressive. And we talked about long time with my mother on fire as well. I love that well. We were parents and Van Nuys as a studio musician. What's the quickest way to get to the valley? Mary musician writer that we completely were caught unawares and I would have sent my kids to private school. Well if I could. I just couldn't afford it and couldn't get them in but when talking to other liberal progressive parents at all the La Times book events and all of the parties as with the discharge nate Cetera et Cetera. Language was it was never a private school. It was always an independent school to sounds like right on target and the reason that we are sending our child to John Dewey Mulholland willows. Say on the mountain is because we wanted independent thinking and diversity versity. Yeah but the local schools are seventy five percent Latino. They're not diverse enough because there are two Latino there to Mexican and Guatemalan but the limousine liberals or whether it would be that Acura. I don't even know what the fancy car the Tesla hybrid imports. delectable carcass are better than you upset that liberal but they never called it it was which is a little bit of a cfo be it was always in service of their child all that was gifted and they just didn't want their kids to be among English learners because they had learned somewhere appear related the their child's English learning developed both parents have PhD's in English and learn plenty of good English. Just look at a publication like so many of the top liberal publications out of New York that really really really espoused liberal politics boy. Their editors all their kids go to expensive private schools New York Times. Yes yes David. remix kids go to the local public school. Hey James Bennett. At at the time I didn't go to the local public school walk. And you talk about diversity. It's a curated diversity wind. Oh we want African Americans. We won African American kids. That are from the hood but we want them vetted very thoroughly. We want that admissions person to have shaken them upside down and sideways. We may even even want a third party. There's these nonprofits like a better chance that helps identify. We WanNA make sure that they're not that kind of African American kid. Yeah we want you know the right kind. And then of course the kid who's just there to get his education is also there to provide it'd diversity experience for the rich white kids so they can say our child doesn't see color right and then about the La realities. When I was sending my kids to elementary school we were looking at a house over here and I said well? What is the elementary school? She said. Oh it's vantage it. Never send them. Don't even think about why right he's all Hispanic and she said but if you buy on the other side of the street that's the district for Third Street school. Oh but you'd Never WanNa go there. Why all Asian? They're super competitive. So the Hispanics perceived to be not strong enough for your genius the Asians not. They got their hustle on your kids. Missile ever survive. You need some curated diversity up just the reality of liberal liberal liberal to go back to felicity huffman felicity. Here's what's going on. I don't know how much you followed her mothering website. What the flicker which close goes down immediately after she was arrested? I didn't okay so her thing. On what the flow. The tone of it is we all love. Our Kids Ed's motherhood has gotten crazy. Take some shortcuts. That's the whole essence of what the flick like you know. What if those other mothers WANNA show up? And unlike Carpool to the thing and bring all desserts. For God's sakes let them do it. And if you're supposed to like handknitted Cape for the play and you've got an extricate for God's sakes she just took the what the flicker approach one step too far like if you're doesn't do well on the sat just have have someone take it doesn't get someone to take. She just did not realize immersed she was or or in a way in a way it was the highest testament to what the flip thinking. You know now that she's out of jail she should be like what the flick into the maximum whereas yes I had to go to the slammer but it was just just like a camp and me and Martha Stewart and the Don suits like you win some you lose a lot of people are like. Oh she's the least involved of any evident. It did seem on the one hand I talked to an FBI guy about what these rates are like. All of them are basically you kick open the door if they don't open it. You flood the house because there could be someone in backer destroying documents. Everyone's like sleeping in their getting a SWAT team. So it's like is that too much and I see where they could be coming from. Where when the whole system is so corrupt what made her plan more corrupt?

Private schools didn't do very well with early action and early decision this year at the Ivy League colleges and there's been some talk that the Ivy League colleges want to teach a lesson to these. La Rich people. Not that. I think it's going to affect everything in the ultimate decisions at the end but are kind of saying we are not just going to close on your bullshit anymore. We're GONNA keep an eye on you all the way through before we give any admissions. I just think it got the attention of the admissions missions.

Those you see ones are do Thanksgiving weekend then comes Christmas then comes January the first month of Erie waiting where there's lots of time to ruminate and you get the queasy feeling as a parent that you've done everything wrong. Perhaps not as wrong as felicity Huffman but still wrong to commiserate great spoke with my friend Caitlin Flanagan about her recent brilliant piece they had it coming in the Atlantic monthly. I remember I still in this horrible habit of waking up. I'm just looking at twitter. which is just an addictive thing to do? And I should break brisket your secrets I still do it and so I kind of woke up and I just go to the most tweeted out stories and it just seemed like felicity Huffman arrested. FBI Cheating Sat. And I fell asleep. It was so overwhelming it it was just like. I maybe had an aneurysm. It was just so that the FBI had taken beloved celebrity Felicity Huffman because she had somehow paid to cheat on her daughters sat. It was like if you wrote a really bad bald on the head novel. That would be like a number one bestseller about celebs. La and what ultimately would bring her down would be the FBI that would be just ridiculous scene and everybody said. Are you going to write about it and analyzing whenever there's often been where people like. This is the perfect story for you. That's why I'm not going to write it. And then I realized. Oh they're right. I should because before becoming a writer twenty-five years ago I tried it a very fancy prep school in La Harvard Westlake. And then I was a college counselor there and when you were a teacher to teach school like that is a dream dream. Come true because the kids. They've done more of the homework than you did. They know that minor characters that you kind of just glossed over and you see come in. Can't write it all in the beginning of the year Macbeth. Macbeth is weird by the end. Macbeth is ambitious but in the college. Counseling Office. I really saw that these parents it just consume home them on every level. The idea that all of a sudden my time as the person filling this child with values ideas traditions additions. It's ending there's that and then there's this whole other insane level that if your child doesn't get into a certain kind leaned of college which every possible you know the. US Bureau of Economic Research. Does this every single year. There's no economic benefit. God knows there's not the happiness benefit because I have known some real depressive that went to some very fancy college it and all that gets mega jacked up with this idea of America right now being this society where the one percent is really the half percent is really the quarter percent. Where there's just this mega well? That's developing I am convinced convinced out of these private schools and the elite colleges. We're no longer seeing the production of a leadership class. Or even I think we're seeing the beginning of a ruling class. These parents at these top prep schools. They would be so rich. They wouldn't be in these mansions. It wouldn't be driving in these cars if they didn't know how to be aggressive. Never take no for an answer. One person says no you keep going to someone else and someone else in someone else and so instead of doing anything having to do with education in the least basically like you're in a Harem filleted ing these monsters to keep them. Happy happy to get them things that you didn't get an opportunity to have what went wrong with these schools because they weren't always horrible like as recently as nineteen sixty nine. There was this credo of the independent schools. It said it would be not a sin but it would be a terrible thing if all we were doing was taking in strong kids and making them stronger privileged kids and making them more privilege that price of tuition every child must know is dead of service to the nation and and what happened is the nineteen eighties and these horrible parents. They're all came of age in the eighties. Greed is good. You WanNA flashy car you WANNA flashy degree. You're working on Wall Street. You're cheating the country you're causing economy to collapse. Not once but twice and then you would see these colleges they are. I don't know if we're allowed to say horse anymore. In bad way these colleges. They'll do anything for money and Harvard. Yale do it like do you know what. The Z list is at Harvard. No every year there are families are so wealthy but the kid is so marginal the college. I want to take them so one of the reasons that they'll really bring down the GPA A.. And the test scores are so it's senior year. You've applied to Harvard. You did not get into Harvard. You can send your deposit to whatever other school considered a lesser schools at Trinity College or whatever and then the parents start working with Harvard. Harvard says well your in your child could actually be admitted for a year from now so we don't have to account for his grades and scores ever because he's not in the pool. Well that's been this year and he's not going to be in the next year they are seventy percent white fifty percent alumni. It used to be quite secret and now it's is quite known if you have a kid and private high school who's going to Harvard taking a year off. They're almost certainly Z list. It it makes me sad for all the either middle class or lower who are just working really hard on their. Sat's and volunteering like that's going to you know that they're in the same pool as others. My business in life one of my job is to constantly explain to these kids who all different through podcasting if Today but through my writing that this is it profoundly corrupt system. It bows to money before all other things and every single thing they try to do to make it look like. It's not a profoundly corrupt system as ally suggesting to like Ernest High School kid of America. That if you do everything right you have a chance to Yale. No you don't and some of the cruelty is I think both children particularly younger one. WHO's male? I was more aware I I love just going to say I love head of act like we've been talking for fifty minutes about millions of kids and you're like we'll both children especially the younger one like it back to Mike when you envelopes come in Harvard Yale Stanford there came Mrs from all of these goals to say just comment apply it. Neither of my kids played a sport. You know it's like what is crew when what's like on the crew of what there was no Lacrosse in Van Nuys. Israeli land long running from the the grass is that kind of sparkling water. But they're inviting all these kids too long so that those numbers come in love. The application staffer just loves the fact that they don't even publish the numbers because it's so disillusioning but everyone knows it's three percent right three percent when you're letting in three percent on some of those are the alumnis children and some are the children of the super wealthy and some are these athletes. God knows we gotTa have these raping swimmers on campus at all raping swimmer Ru. It's not a fair game right and also the thing with the testing extra your listeners. In American with Disabilities Act Act has very correctly always said some children have serious learning disabilities and they need extra time to take these tests. That's the nature the profoundly dyslexic kid. Of course the college should know that. So they'll put a little asterisk next to it so the no it in the context of this disability will will Americans for disabilities got involved a second time and said No. That's wrong to stigmatize disabled person. So we're going to take off that Asterisk asterisks so the college will never know if you took it over two days over.

Just thinking of myself for myself that I spent so much of my time on earth breath hating myself. I don't think I'm thinner now. Because of the diets I went on. I think I'm actually heavier. Because the diets I went on. There's so much stress in in cycling through different way yes and also feeling just feeling bad about how you look as its own cortisol trigger that. No it's true that her theory is that that causes more physical harm than anything else right and it's hard to know even in the pre diabetic stuff how much it's from the weight and the desperate attempt to control the eating and then the feast and famine. Which of course I'm still doing? I'm still in the midst of it but right well. It's kind of like a year ago. I really did give up. What didn't fast or or control my eating in anywhere about it for a year and I did gain and I did not not like how my body felt? I don't like how it feels like when I'm walking around right I mean that I it does not matter how I look I. It doesn't matter for my job it doesn't matter any my husband doesn't care like I feel like I'm really healthy. I don't think it affects my health. It doesn't feel great to be at the size is but I don't exactly know what to do about it. So that's why I came up with this two times of fasting one time a week and then wherever it lands it lands. It may just be at this body. That's my current thing but I I realize how much how much I'm still caught in it while I'm trying to get out of it so I think as you go forth just summing up you've resolved solve some some big things I was on the path of resolving them so I don't know maybe this is just another way for me to sneak in have a diet or maybe the Holistic Lynn wisely. You're in conversation with this whole topic. I want is to not think about it so much. I don't WanNa put so much energy into it. which is a weird thing to say in the middle of a five to possibly seven day fast but I wanna be like Oh? This is what I do every year. I do these things and and then during the week I do this otherwise I never think about it. I want a protocol that I just and I don't know if this is it so I still am in the middle of figuring during that part of it up. I think I've come a long way in body acceptance. I totally think I'm hell except for my blood. Sugar being high which could come from other reasons thousands but it's probably from how much alcohol drinking sugary that science is pretty clear that those things 'cause I accept accepted myself in huge strides this year of how I look when I go to costume fittings. I don't have any thoughts about what size. Anything is or embarrassment in about it. When I go to events in Hollywood I no longer care now? Part of that is getting older. So it's a cheat. No one cares how you look anymore. More join them and thirty one. No but that is that either was going to happen anyway because I was getting lean older or it happened because of internal work I've done but I like to think it's because I've come to an acceptance about how I look that is that is a huge hurdle I would say I have gone over without hurdle but okay so the plan is you're on your third day just when we you're on day three. It's January soy started at the. I guess you may go to January January fifth or seventh. If I feel like I'm really going I'M GONNA go to but I've never done that before I've done. I've done four or five day fasts then and you'll return to eating something. Yes whatever you want then I just whatever I want whatever you feel yes okay. So we'll see we'll l.. See how it goes. Yeah we'll check back in P. E. IT is it from Jelly horror. Either way..
