"By Matthew Mendoza. Grace notes. If there is a place of grace, it is not here. The side this season will stream. The water does all the things that water does burble trickle, rush and roar. The moments of our days become lives wearing a smooth. We are not river stones. There is no grace here. This is just water. Just like food is not love and washing your hands of the hearts, stains is just a myth. Forgiveness does not flow like water. It's fall. It's always fall now. Leaves are not hands. Still I read their poems. My fingers drift along the frame of the still leaf. I tell the leaf sometimes you are outgoing. Sometimes you are wary. You find it scary to reveal too much. The trees share decades, but their leaves are short lived. Forgotten moments frozen in an orange fire. I practice forgiveness and gratitude and mumble jumbled prayer. As I set the leaf sale. I follow the last glide of its early journey. Then as I stumble over dirt, beer cans condoms. This becomes a mirror of my own life. The stem like. Make an important rudder. The Leaf drifts past a rock and my leaf circles in the Eddie of a near Miss, a boulder. Becomes a matter of perspective. My own hurt becomes the stream. My pain wearing smooth the lives of people I love. I watched the leaf circle circle sink. I go back to the place. I started and find another leaf, and if this one sinks find another. I know that this dream is not forgiveness, or goodness or grace, but it is. The only water I.

Chose to stand for this writer because I believe that the racial caste system that is mass incarceration in this country presents probably the greatest threat to American democracy, today.

"John Sharon to answer is well. We talked about something somewhat similar to this last week where the bengals can still salvage this season be competitive. Maybe even make a playoff push and still next year ear. US draft lateral to move up and get a quarterback of the future they can do both the the thing is is this team does not make the aggressive moves usually on that front so there isn't ability if they can start scraping some wins together. This division is really sucky right now with the exception of the Ravens Evens who even last week lost day could potentially be competitive this year and still move up in the next year. Maybe two years to get their franchise. quarterback of the future led. Dalton play this one more final year if they really WANNA do that under a team friendly deal. Let the rookie develop l. up for your and then move on from there John Cheering your thoughts. I I have no clue how you justify taking anybody else besides a quarterback if they finish in the bottom five this year right. There's no there's no position not even if you have the next Ray Lewis linebacker the next Joe Thomas left tackle there is no condition that could possibly impacting positively more than the quarterback if you just went three and thirteen with annual starting sixteen games no matter how poorly poorly he plays if they go three and thirteen or foreign twelve reading five eleven for that better there is no zero justification for not taking a quarterback they should take one last year when they were six six and ten and they had wanted to hang it should take one two years before Mark Jackson when they went on a seven nine or whatever when originally twelfth in order there is no position of music more quarterback if the season goes down the tubes. There's only one. There's only been one team. You started three once the playoffs. That team was last year's Houston. Texans goes to Shawn Watson basically want Goku a crappy offensive line just like he's doing now. They don't have that quarterback that can possibly get the now they might win. You know maybe six or seven the games at this point for best case scenario but even still you should have a pretty good idea but what quarterback is leading this team right now and what they have to move forward yeah the other thing that I want to mention gene. Is You know a lot of people are saying you know will fix the offensive line. Fix The offensive line while I mean you look you look at it. If you're looking maybe into twenty twenty honey you would if you think highly of John Williams he should be back cordy. Glenn should be back even if it's now kind of a rental deal if he's back in two thousand twenty you have. Michael Jordan at this team was supposedly excited about you still have billy price trying to find his way on this team so may have offensive lineman. maybe linebacker second round. God Third Ron's been terrible for them for that but if they failed they've attempted to fill some of these holes so you know like like I. I'm in agreement with John. If you know there's there's no way if there are three win team this year that they wouldn't look at quarterback towards top off of the drought but I do. I do see John's purgatory comment. They're like I said I think team can has the ability to potentially be competitive winsome games feel good about themselves in twenty twenty and still move up to get a guy even if the plan is to play him in twenty twenty one John that's. That's my thought appreciate the call though man sorry about the only three start yeah yup okay this Monday night. I would love to see us. Put Pittsburgh Bergen four so there's definitely something to root for their. I don't want to see the game totally collapsed but if that happens I'm just using common sense. We got a quarterback Aubrac. Gear is definitely the start looking elsewhere. Thanks for calling him by hope. You've been doing well okay. This is Cara Swisher. I WanNa tell you about my podcast. Rico decode every week we have candid in depth conversations with people like Elon Musk Nancy Pelosi and Kathy Griffin we talk about how they got to where they are today and how their work is changing our world new episodes of Rico decode are released every Monday and Wednesday and we often have bonus episodes on Friday. Subscribe for free to be the first to hear them on Apple podcasts or in your favorite podcast App all right John Good old good old John from Kentucky haven't heard from him for a little while so good to hear from him. He's been in the live chat there but you know he. He teased it. Let's talk steelers. you know we'll talk this for a few minutes before we get out of here. John Bengals head to Pittsburgh their third road game of the month of September. you know it ends kind of the Road Street there but on paper a tough game you go to Pittsburgh on Monday night but no ban Nobel no brown different looking team. They lost to San Francisco in a very weird way this last week they are now. Owen three your initial thoughts of this game the Bengals had there might be some any supporters after this season face off against may root off who in my opinion looks pretty good against Seattle when he first came in for Ben Rothlisberger but eat looked abysmal against the forty niners in not granted any did too but like you're right that was again the his redefinition of one. I think four turned over at least four or five times on the final number was scored like the twenty points off. I think besides like two touchdowns touchdowns Rudolph only completed one pass beyond one yard beyond line of scrimmage so if the bengals the bengals have a chance here because the quarterback that they're facing once again again isn't isn't nearly consisted enough to run away with this game but ultimately comes down to the difference with the defense because unfortunately make fitzpatrick has made has made a difference on the defensive meal with one interception last week against Garoppolo and made a couple of impact plays on coverage as well so like that front seven. It's still really good for Pittsburgh. They have. TJ off the edge. Devin Bush was a guy that allowed bengals draft. He's playing really well at linebacker and Fitz. Fitzpatrick is improving secondary so it'll it'll come down to this offense is so inept to start off the game against a really good defense on the road. It's it might not matter how poorly your inconsistent read off. Laser not be enough for the steelers to just maybe squeak. Aleka like possession win in the low twenty. S Does the you know. We talked about a little little earlier. Tonight is the fact that the bengals very well could be two in one right now. Does that give you any kind of confidence that they could go into Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh being Owen three missing missing their starting quarterback missing some of their skill position players that have been starved for them for many years. Does that give you any confidence. The bengals can go in there. AH AH me I'm sure it gives you some level of confidence. But what level of confidence would that give you given the scenario around this game right now. I guess combining running like the fact bengals stink in the steelers. Just stink a little bit less prolific prog a three or four because this still a road game in is the first and only primetime game. We have with Zach Taylor this year. It'll be interesting to see how he prepares those guys for that because like you said earlier you know the team is still failing in clutch situations agents. Will this is under the lights man. Your season is is practically over not technically over but practically over what you're facing a team. That's also threatening with you know a very bad. Susan other own who started a second string quarterback. How how. How do you respond from losing your second close game on the road early on the season? How do you respond to your offense being so on on cold and how how do you come out in the only chance you have to leap nullify this this narrative put all this primetime issues squarely on on Marvin List. I guess those are the questions that we need interested yeah so I'm glad you brought up the primetime thing because that's where I was going next and I saw you know in the in the life facebook feed Matthew Mendoza saying can bengals win under lights and seen some other people talk about the primetime thing if There's a lot what s here that. I'm going to give you but if dom plays well if the bengals win in prime time what does that does that. Give you any kind of feeling of of confidence going for the hey. You know that this could be the pivotal game turns this season around if the bengals are able to go with their rookie head coach go into Pittsburgh on Monday night. Beat them and get things even temporarily back on track. Do you think that this is a pivotal game that can turn their season around or is it. You know it's still going to be more more of the same and this isn't at the same Pittsburgh steelers team. We've been accustomed to. I guess it depends on how they win if they win because you know if it's like an ugly one score game where neither team really plays well. Kinda like like last week like if if the Bengals beat the bills you know with one or two things went their way but still played like the did I'm not having so much more confidence that they can turn the season around and make the playoffs. I think it kind of goes the same with this one if they if they come out and win by multiple scores and just play with such a conference not used to seeing them on prime time and these issues there are so prevalent just magically fixed than yeah. There's there's a chance that they could become an outlier and maybe turned the season around. I don't think that's likely and I don't think that either team is going to blow each other and I think we're just GONNA be less with the similar feelings that we have right now but again. If something out of the ordinary happens to them we have no choice the crow and then cover the season as if they're somewhat competitive edited but until we see that I'm basically heavy my bed and saying that we're GonNa see the same things yeah. I mean at this point. I'd like discerning I know. Some people are a is the highest draft pick as possible but for me. I would I'd like to see him. I'd like to take this one even even if it if it means that you know even if they're not gonNA win a bunch of games this year I would like to see them. Take is one from from Pittsburgh Kinda. Even if it's a small steppingstone provide a stepping stone for Zack Taylor this team in Zack Taylor reportedly had a very passionate speech to his team at the end of the bills lossing. Were so close for so closed on you know don't quit. Don't give up on us. You know we're not getting any breaks all that kind of stuff..
