Coronavirus: What You Need To Know

"As each state has now taken at least a step toward easing restrictions meant to contain the corona virus. We're getting a clearer. Picture of communities have been most affected. It's lower income communities and communities of color particularly in New York City where twenty seven percent of people in those neighborhoods tested positive for coronavirus. Antibodies compared to nineteen percent of the general citywide population. The spread is continuing in those communities. And that's where the new cases are coming. Andrew Cuomo said today. The gap is even wider in certain parts of the Bronx and Brooklyn where more than forty percent of. The people have the antibodies. That's where the cases coming from. That's where the new hospitalizations coming from. That's going into the hospital system. That's where you're going to see the highest number of deaths. He said the state would begin. A public health education campaign in housing projects and distribute masks and hand sanitizer getting the P. p. e. into the community getting the hand sanitizer into the community explaining social distancing. And why that's so important and explain how this virus spreads its public health education effort to those who live in public housing. This is overdue. The density makes social distancing difficult and leaves tenants vulnerable this week. Abc News is offering special coverage of the disproportionate impact of Corona virus on Black Hispanic and indigenous Americans in a series called a nation divided. Ju- Brown joins US FROM JOURNEY FOR JUSTICE ALLIANCE IN CHICAGO. Why is this virus hitting communities of color so hard you know Cova crisis just unveils? Horrible practice that we've experienced really for decades in this country which has been the sabotage of our basic quality of life institutions food production delivery systems health care education housing economic development So those things that many Americans take for granted. We often have to fight and scratch for so. This crisis really exposes our country's lack of willingness to address these issues. How does that play where you are in Chicago? Going to pandemic really a hit. We started seek death with around the country is Chicago today. Early thirty percent of the population we would seventy percent of the deaths and while this is happening Many of our hospitals were on the brink of closing such as Mercy Hospital. We've already lost. Michael Reese Hospital in virtually every other hospital in the black community has been starved to the point of really minimum capacity but at me when the pandemic hit many of our people who have pre existing conditions. We go to the hospital with sent back home right. I HAVE FAMILY FAMILY MEMBER. Who would sit back home from the Emergency Room? Three times and died. What's causing these gaps and disparities? Will you know This African proverb that says the truth. The simple complicated is a lot and I think at some point. We have to realize that America has never dealt with her ugly which is a baseless hatred for Black Brown indigenous families. It's to tional. Racism is the reason institutional. Racism is at play so people going to say that black people get Kobe because we are not listening right while ignoring a white families that are storming the state capital in Michigan or doing protest all over the country. And they're not social distancing we are getting covert because we don't have health we are getting covert because we're going to the high school in sending us home and so I think at the federal level and at the local level what we must have from people is the first thing humility understanding that you not better than at mother who's a high school graduate who works at Walmart that that mother is working just as hard as you to make the future for her baby. Do you think the clamor for reopening would be different if it weren't communities of color that are now the source of the most new cove infections. I definitely believe that's that's a major part of it at once. People realize that is Black Brown indigenous folks. That are getting sick. They're getting sick. The most sensitive importance has gone down a great deal. We had a very critical moment. Where we see America's response to life or death leads has not changed so institutionalized level loveless nece is alive and well and we but we have a moment an opportunity to change it t- to Brown of journey for Justice Alliance in

"A read once and then you read it again. Can't believe this is Bob and Cherries Benin. I have a story here. That feels like a lifetime movie. But it's all true back in April of nineteen sixty four. A newborn baby boy was stolen from. Michael Reese Hospital in Chicago stolen vanished never seen again. What was the Uruguayan? Nineteen sixty four eight zero of nineteen sixty four for the next couple of years. FBI and local law enforcement searched desperately desperately for this child and they were able to close the case in nineteen and sixty six when a two year old boy was found abandoned in Jersey shopping center and he resembled the missing baby from Chicago so they took the two year old that they've found a New Jersey and reunited him with the parents who believed that this was their son. Now keep in mind in nineteen sixty six there was no. DNA testing possible. Right so they they were going on you know. Some pretty primitive technology physical resemblance age was right. The gender was right blood type. I mean we had a stolen baby. We had had an abandoned baby. Well that baby was raised by the frenetic family. They named Him Paul and he was ten years old when he learned that he'd been abducted it as a child forty years later he took a DNA test and the DNA tests proved that he was not related to his parents. Chester Dora fall and that brought the mystery back of. Would it ever happened to that couples biological child Paul who had been stolen in nineteen sixty four so so investigative journalists with wgn set out to find the real Paul Francesc the real stolen baby and they found him living in Michigan under an assumed name. His assumed name has been withheld because he's a victim of a crime but DNA evidence proves he is the child trial that was abducted from that Chicago Hospital. In April of nineteen sixty four. He said that he learned that about himself a couple of months ago when the FBI contacted contacted him and he's still struggling to come to terms with the news because he's in his fifties now and has lived his entire life believing he was one person and only to get a phone. Call telling him that you were stolen out of the newborn unit of the hospital in nineteen sixty four. He hasn't said whether he plans to connect with his biological mother. Dora till never have the opportunity to meet biological father because Chester Franchet died several years ago and It remains to be seen what this man is going to decide is biological mother lives in the suburbs of Chicago. She's declined climbed comment. But I can only imagine that she so hopeful that he will agree to meet with her. What would you do in that situation? What would any of us do if I mike came to your door and said you're not who you think you are Bodley seeing? Actually welcome that someways definitely. What's my choice agents can you? Even if I'm the mother. I would want to meet him. Of course he would and if you were the if you were him him though I would wanna meet her I would too. I think I mean it's out there. We're we're talking about it right now. Wouldn't you want to do that. Look look at the harm. Whoever that person who snatched that child due to all of these people well? And here's what we don't know. You can kind of assume that whoever stole that baby took that baby and in Michigan and raised that Bay and as far as he has always known him believe those were his parents loved and adored adore him. But there's been no comment about that. There's been no comment yet and no comment about the child that they got the band. Yeah you have to wonder about this. Is I think over the next several days. There's nothing else happening in the country to really fill up the news so this is going to be a great but what one one thing that I thought about as a parent is as a mother. The missing children children are taken children that just vanish. It's so devastating. Your heart is utterly broken but there's always that hope that that child is alive somewhere that that child could someday be found a story like this. This baby was stolen. Sixty four a story like this proves that there's always hope until there isn't it makes you. I wonder how many other missing children have no idea who they actually are. You also don't know this state of mind of the biological mother. You know this this. This is quite a shock to her so the idea that she was not rushing to meet her child in some ways. It's understandable. You don't know where she is mentally with well. She may not be the person who gets to choose. Correct the the man in Michigan. Who is this stolen baby? I think he's the one who gets to choose. Yeah but they were both victims. It's a it's a tragedy. And how would you like like Bob. Ni- me more Gordon you. If I found out that my parents stole me from my real parents I would be like thank God. I knew I didn't belong here. But if you love your parents and and that's the only family you know. I think they still love them as kidnappers. kind of a hard one. That is a hard one if if indeed. That's what happened that and we don't know that we don't know but let's say that wasn't the case that whoever raised them really are the parents right. Well whoever raised Kim those are his parents Ara siblings. That is his family because biology is only one small ingredient and what makes a family right. But it's a hell of a blow to be. How would he be no fifty five fifty six? It's a hell of a math I know. Uh It's a hell of a blow to discover that not only. Are you not who you think you are. But that your origins volva terrible terrible terrible crime because because he may have been kidnapped and and then whoever's parents were may have gotten him from the kidnapper thinking that it was it was a bit adoption. Yeah ask anyway. We're going to follow this story. Assuming it doesn't get pushed out of the news by whatever else is going on in America right now. It is Bob and Sheri UH fantasy who ten Colonel John Jackson stations in east buttons early. Everybody back home. Happy holidays. Happy New Year. Go welcoming new troops home with Operation Exodus Cherry. Well it's brand New Year right around the corner hand brand new decade so we should embrace some changes for our own good and I have one change that I really want to embrace. Because it's so good for you but I got my doubts. I'm just got doubts. L. Do it. So this isn't a change your inflicting on everybody else. This is one you're going to inflict on yourself. Yes yes before. I tell you what it is though. Here are the the things that we should be doing that. We say we just don't have time to do so. You great exercising is number one reading spending time outdoors spending time with family sorting through your old junk and throwing out stuff. You don't need or giving it away. Yard work cooking from scratch catching up with friends deep cleaning your home and watching movies a missing all of those to the point. I mean I I hid them a little bit but to the point that I wanna hit them. There's always a movie that comes and goes rose and I don't see it. I would like to throw away all this stuff. We don't need in the house but everything takes so much time you know. I'm not doing yard work. I am doing yard hard work at all. Okay how about this listen to them. There's an old adage and we all know it an apple a day keeps the doctor away researchers At the University of reading which sounds like a series in England University of reading in England had people eat too large large apples a day for two months at the end of it. The average person lowered their blood pressure. Cut Their heart attack risk and reduce their cholesterol. Mr All by four percent it worked for men and it worked for women. Women saw a little bit of a bigger effect than men did. Juice does not count. They tried it with apple juice and forget about it has to have the fiber so. We're talking about two good sized apples a day every day would would you do that. You know I want to but I just. I don't love apples I I'm not a big apple guy. Why no no I You know I'd like delicious apples but they don't taste that great. Actually but I like the way they look. You've got to let go of red delicious engineer to it gets you honey crisper candy crisper. One of these new kind of I got zoo. It gets you a Granny Smith but that's a lot of apple every day as you find you. Are you kidding me. Drop an apple defeat bag. Put this show and your time. But I'm eating chicken salad on on a Hawaiian role. That's a lot easier to get down to apple's Day. What if I bring him one of those little things I have for my kids that cuts licensors inputs in little slices there is such a thing I own my God? It's not even high tech. I'm sure they have it at Williams aim cinema ivory handle. I know there's a horror that little thing you put it on top of your apple. Push down the core leaves your apple and wedges. I'm going to get one of those and I'll give it a shot bed bath and beyond don't go to like restoration hardware J. crew or something beyond Walmart and get you. What are those called those apples laser things? Yeah all right and it doesn't batteries it's manually operated. I can't believe you're fighting me on eating too. I'm not fighting you bill. I just know myself I just don't teach you know anybody who really really eats that. Minneapolis as more even eats an apple as almost always something in your mouth. If it isn't a snack it's your foot. You can't get an apple I. I do like a whole Hawaiian role. They are delicious could. Why can't it be pizza because if if you want to eat healthy food called pizza you have to make it to heaven? That's the way words. Accidents.

"March of nineteen seventy five the Chicago Tribune publishes the story and the headline is prob- aid, Queen tied, a kidnapping the first sentence is Linda Taylor dubbed, Chicago's welfare Queen, because she is suspected of swindling Illinois out of more than one hundred fifty four thousand dollars in fraudulent welfare payments is under investigation in the nineteen sixty four Frans. Ac baby kidnapping the story later says that sources in the FBI reported that the case was reopened after Chicago police, and FBI agents, uncovered information, the could link Miss Taylor to the crime. When I, I wrote the piece, I late about Linda Taylor. That piece came out and two thousand thirteen as I was doing my, my research. I found these old articles in the Tribune and elsewhere about the FRANZ at kidnapping and about. Taylor's possible connection to it. And so I was looking around and seeing, you know, was there ever any resolution to this, you know, what happened and I found a short message that you had turned out had posted on a message board called orphan memories. Do you remember posting that message? I sure do that was one of the first steps, I took yellow me read that message. And then you can can talk about it says, hi, I was identified by the FBI as Paul just a FRANZ act. The kidnapped baby from Michael Reese hospital in Chicago. I was abandoned in Newark, New Jersey on July second eighteen sixty five found in a stroller outside of variety store, I was placed in an orphanage when FBI found me, I was placed enough Auster home and given the name, Scott McKinley. I have just found out that I am not Paul Joseph Ron Zach. I need help to find out who I am. So what? It had happened just before you posted. That message. I actually was able to have a DNA test on with my parents it. Oh, it was, it was something I thought about for years and years, like, I even joked about when my parents come out to visit me, a Las Vegas to see this either the granddaughter that I would get hairs off their pillow. You know, do stuff like that. But the tests weren't available in knowing if you could find them, they were so expensive, and it's got couldn't afford it. So in two thousand twelve I was at CBS, and I happened to find this kit by gene, it was like twenty five dollars. So I bought the kit. I brought it home and put it in the closet, and I thought, you know, this is it I'm gonna find a way to ask my parents, whom I I love with all my art to take this test, and it's a quite a while. But I was I was actually able to finally do it. And the results showed that there was essentially zero chance that you are related to Chester Dora rep. Yeah. The, the guy who called me on the phone after AMI jump through months of security hoops. He said there is no remote possibility that you're Paul Franek. And that, you know, even though I felt it for. So so long. I really believe I wasn't Paul. But once I heard it it's like my life, just stopped everything I thought he knew about myself, my life that I was I was, you know, taught to believe just vanished. You know who was? I how old them I am. I really Catholic and my polish in all these things that, that I was told. And it just it just vanished. You can really see that. And that message board posts that I that I read your reaching out, it seems kind of in desparation to fines, if anybody can can help you seems like you're really struggling with how to handle this. It's like a huge, you know bomb, that's dropped the explodes your whole life. Will you know, John? Will really hit me was I wasn't really concerned about myself. I wanted to find out where Paul was what happened too much my parents real child, because this horrible tragedy happened to them and it wasn't solved. And I was hoping that he would be out there and I'd be able to find him. So we've been kind of working on this and parallel. Right. You, you have been following so many different leads, you know, we I chatted with each other, I think, in two thousand and thirteen and you had a Facebook page, where people would give you kind of tips and clues. You did a bunch of TV spots that kicked up a bunch of interest in the case. And then on my side, I've been reporting out the Linda Taylor story and trying to look into not only this kidnapping, but other kidnappings that she she dead or may have done. Let me run through Paul some of the evidence against Taylor. That was laid out back in the nineteen seventies. And just so folks are clear before I got in touch with you. You had never heard of. Any suggestion that Linda Taylor, the so called welfare Queen had anything to do with this, or had even been suspected of having anything to do with us? No, I never even heard her name. Okay. So the evidence against Taylor, as laid out I in the Chicago Tribune in March nineteen seventy five was one of her ex-husband's had told FBI agents that she appeared one day in the mid nineteen sixty s with a newborn baby, although she had not been pregnant Taylor's explanation. Was that she hadn't realized she was pregnant until she gave birth that morning. The Tribune also said that a woman calling herself Connie read now as a name, the Taylor had used in the nineteen forty s had been at the hospital at the time of baby Paul's abduction. Finally the Tribune noted that the Chicago police had received a tip a week after the kidnapping that a person who could have been the kidnapper had tried to rent an apartment under the name constants Wakefield, which was another name the Taylor, you. Used. All right. Then in may nineteen seventy seven after Taylor was convicted of welfare fraud. The Tribune picked up the story again and wrote that a man named Samuel Harper said he was certain that Taylor had stolen the FRANZ act, baby. This man Sam Harper said the Taylor had several children and infants all white that were staying with her. The Tribune also reported that Harper said he assured Taylor was the kidnapper, because she left that day dressed in a white uniform, and the description of the kidnapper matched Taylor. The Tribune also said that Linda Taylor had even filed a police report after the kidnapping saying she had seen the kidnapper with the baby. You know when you hear all that stuff. Paul. You've heard so many different theories for what happened, I can remember looking on that Facebook page and elsewhere. And people saying, I think it might be this person. I think it might be that person what he what do you make of of it? And, you know, in fairness, this was printed in the Chicago Tribune, which is one of the leading newspapers and the country is this isn't just like some crank theory. Absolutely. And when I spoke to you about this. I thought, wow. I think Josh onto something here. I think that just Linda Taylor might have been the one that kidnapped hall when you hear of this specific evidence against her. What do you think? I had a couple of things that kept me kind of away from thinking my mom, I think, would have noticed if she was, you know, African American, and she was certainly taller than Linda Taylor Taylor's height. And you know, in, in the voice. So I I just I had a hard time really thinking it was her. But then again, you don't know until you know, right? I'm kinda with you where I've ended up with all of this is that I know for a fact that Taylor kidnapped children, she was charged with it. I have first hand accounts from people who know that she cannot kids if, if not baby, Paul know that she was in the vicinity at that time I know for a fact that she would dress as a nurse and would say that she was a nurse. That being said there are reasons to believe that she didn't do at the height thing. I think is, is one that I think by all accounts, the kidnapper was something like five six or five seven, and she is much shorter than that. And, you know, there are, there are other reasons too. I think maybe where we both have landed on this Paul is that if we were in charge of the investigation back, then, she's somebody that would have been a person of interest that you would have wanted to talk to. Oh, absolutely. For a very, very long time with the swinging naked light bulb. We're, we're right there. We're in the in.

And when I spoke to you about this. I thought, wow. I think Josh onto something here. I think that just Linda Taylor might have been the one that kidnapped hall when you hear of this specific evidence against her. What do you think? I had a couple of things that kept me kind of away from thinking my mom, I think, would have noticed if she was, you know, African American, and she was certainly taller than Linda Taylor Taylor's height. And you know, in, in the voice. So I I just I had a hard time really thinking it was her. But then again, you don't know until you know, right? I'm kinda with you where I've ended up with all of this is that I know for a fact that Taylor kidnapped children, she was charged with it. I have first hand accounts from people who know that she cannot kids if, if not baby, Paul know that she was in the vicinity at that time I know for a fact that she would dress as a nurse and would say that she was a nurse. That being said there are reasons to believe that she didn't do at the height thing. I think is, is one that I think by all accounts, the kidnapper was something like five six or five seven, and she is much shorter than that. And, you know, there are, there are other reasons too. I think maybe where we both have landed on this Paul is that if we were in charge of the investigation back, then, she's somebody that would have been a person of interest that you would have wanted to talk to. Oh, absolutely. For a very, very long time with the swinging naked light bulb. We're, we're right there. We're in the in.

"March of nineteen seventy five the Chicago Tribune publishes the story and the headline is prob- aid, Queen tied, a kidnapping the first sentence is Linda Taylor dubbed, Chicago's welfare Queen, because she is suspected of swindling Illinois out of more than one hundred fifty four thousand dollars in fraudulent welfare payments is under investigation in the nineteen sixty four Frans. Ac baby kidnapping the story later says that sources in the FBI reported that the case was reopened after Chicago police, and FBI agents, uncovered information, the could link Miss Taylor to the crime. When I, I wrote the piece, I late about Linda Taylor. That piece came out and two thousand thirteen as I was doing my, my research. I found these old articles in the Tribune and elsewhere about the FRANZ at kidnapping and about. Taylor's possible connection to it. And so I was looking around and seeing, you know, was there ever any resolution to this, you know, what happened and I found a short message that you had turned out had posted on a message board called orphan memories. Do you remember posting that message? I sure do that was one of the first steps, I took yellow me read that message. And then you can can talk about it says, hi, I was identified by the FBI as Paul just a FRANZ act. The kidnapped baby from Michael Reese hospital in Chicago. I was abandoned in Newark, New Jersey on July second eighteen sixty five found in a stroller outside of variety store, I was placed in an orphanage when FBI found me, I was placed enough Auster home and given the name, Scott McKinley. I have just found out that I am not Paul Joseph Ron Zach. I need help to find out who I am. So what? It had happened just before you posted. That message. I actually was able to have a DNA test on with my parents it. Oh, it was, it was something I thought about for years and years, like, I even joked about when my parents come out to visit me, a Las Vegas to see this either the granddaughter that I would get hairs off their pillow. You know, do stuff like that. But the tests weren't available in knowing if you could find them, they were so expensive, and it's got couldn't afford it. So in two thousand twelve I was at CBS, and I happened to find this kit by gene, it was like twenty five dollars. So I bought the kit. I brought it home and put it in the closet, and I thought, you know, this is it I'm gonna find a way to ask my parents, whom I I love with all my art to take this test, and it's a quite a while. But I was I was actually able to finally do it. And the results showed that there was essentially zero chance that you are related to Chester Dora rep. Yeah. The, the guy who called me on the phone after AMI jump through months of security hoops. He said there is no remote possibility that you're Paul Franek. And that, you know, even though I felt it for. So so long. I really believe I wasn't Paul. But once I heard it it's like my life, just stopped everything I thought he knew about myself, my life that I was I was, you know, taught to believe just vanished. You know who was? I how old them I am. I really Catholic and my polish in all these things that, that I was told. And it just it just vanished. You can really see that. And that message board posts that I that I read your reaching out, it seems kind of in desparation to fines, if anybody can can help you seems like you're really struggling with how to handle this. It's like a huge, you know bomb, that's dropped the explodes your whole life. Will you know, John? Will really hit me was I wasn't really concerned about myself. I wanted to find out where Paul was what happened too much my parents real child, because this horrible tragedy happened to them and it wasn't solved. And I was hoping that he would be out there and I'd be able to find him. So we've been kind of working on this and parallel. Right. You, you have been following so many different leads, you know, we I chatted with each other, I think, in two thousand and thirteen and you had a Facebook page, where people would give you kind of tips and clues. You did a bunch of TV spots that kicked up a bunch of interest in the case. And then on my side, I've been reporting out the Linda Taylor story and trying to look into not only this kidnapping, but other kidnappings that she she dead or may have done. Let me run through Paul some of the evidence against Taylor. That was laid out back in the nineteen seventies. And just so folks are clear before I got in touch with you. You had never heard of. Any suggestion that Linda Taylor, the so called welfare Queen had anything to do with this, or had even been suspected of having anything to do with us? No, I never even heard her name. Okay. So the evidence against Taylor, as laid out I in the Chicago Tribune in March nineteen seventy five was one of her ex-husband's had told FBI agents that she appeared one day in the mid nineteen sixty s with a newborn baby, although she had not been pregnant Taylor's explanation. Was that she hadn't realized she was pregnant until she gave birth that morning. The Tribune also said that a woman calling herself Connie read now as a name, the Taylor had used in the nineteen forty s had been at the hospital at the time of baby Paul's abduction. Finally the Tribune noted that the Chicago police had received a tip a week after the kidnapping that a person who could have been the kidnapper had tried to rent an apartment under the name constants Wakefield, which was another name the Taylor, you. Used. All right. Then in may nineteen seventy seven after Taylor was convicted of welfare fraud. The Tribune picked up the story again and wrote that a man named Samuel Harper said he was certain that Taylor had stolen the FRANZ act, baby. This man Sam Harper said the Taylor had several children and infants all white that were staying with her. The Tribune also reported that Harper said he assured Taylor was the kidnapper, because she left that day dressed in a white uniform, and the description of the kidnapper matched Taylor. The Tribune also said that Linda Taylor had even filed a police report after the kidnapping saying she had seen the kidnapper with the baby. You know when you hear all that stuff. Paul. You've heard so many different theories for what happened, I can remember looking on that Facebook page and elsewhere. And people saying, I think it might be this person. I think it might be that person what he what do you make of of it? And, you know, in fairness, this was printed in the Chicago Tribune, which is one of the leading newspapers and the country is this isn't just like some crank theory. Absolutely. And when I spoke to you about this. I thought, wow. I think Josh onto something here. I think that just Linda Taylor might have been the one that kidnapped hall when you hear of this specific evidence against her. What do you think? I had a couple of things that kept me kind of away from thinking my mom, I think, would have noticed if she was, you know, African American, and she was certainly taller than Linda Taylor Taylor's height.

"Instagram account. So guys, I have the code here, make sure listeners get it. And you can use the code today at jeered, Donald dot com, and you'll get twenty percents off any restaurant order. I I lived for a while. At the heartbreak hotel, we call it because every divorce guy radio lived in the same building, and it was at the corner of Michigan Randolph, and there was a Jere downloads, and I was working at the prudential center for CBS in those days, and there was a jeered Donald's, right there on the plaza literally between my apartment building and the, the radio station, the prudential. And so I spent a lot of time ordering from Donald back in those days pizza. It is very good. And I, I have to say that the deep dish pizza is not as carb heavy. Heavy as I thought it was going to be. I looked it up online to see how many carbs have to put into my plastic pancreas, here hand and it wasn't as many as I thought, so so you had a piece, I had a slice and it was absolutely delicious. So thanks to Donna's. We appreciate you very much guys. So let's talk I heard you mention this that the, the governor, of course, is going to sign the casino Bill gaming Bill, and then the mayor will have her shot at it's going to be a private entity that builds us casino in Chicago. Right. But she will have a great deal to save where it's going to be built, my understanding and the casino discussion now centers on location, here, Lori Lightfoot doesn't want to get into speculation. Say that earlier today. But the Tribune said, why not a look to the blueprint for a casino from our friends at Amazon, who passed on? Putting their second headquarters here in Chicago. And that's a shame for the city but they needed a giant location similar to what a casino my require. So they looked at sixty two acres along the Chicago river between the south loop in Chinatown now I'm trying to picture that I can't picture from the rivers location now, taking one of those river cruises down that way, but there's sixty two acres there, then there's thirty-seven acres between Chicago and grand avenue. That's the Tribune property. I think I am not mistaken, where they had some sort of electronic problem today, by the way, both papers relate because of that. But I think that's those are the thirty seven acres are looking at that and Lincoln yards developments, seventy acres along Lincoln park and buck town. But I thought that was already going to be developed into residential Senate. I, I just had they've been debating that back and forth, but that was really about how much residential the zoning and the height and congestion in the area. You know, it's interesting, you know, where to put it but you, I would think. They wouldn't just wanna put it where we have vacant property, or we could have jobs, but also were tourism would have access to it. Right. I heard the governor say it might have been on your reporter earlier in the day, he said he would like to see go to a distressed neighborhood that those aren't as exact words, but I think for people that have been left behind right? But, but then I read Christopher MacQuarie in the Tribune. She tweeted out that, that's exactly the wrong thing to do. You don't want to put a casino in a distress neighborhood for social reasons, because it's long been reported that who are the people that go to the casinos are not rich people right, there, people with a lot less money and may have gambling addictions. And so that's always been the big debate, right? Yes. I know that debate exists. But I, I used to work with a guy who very devout Christian man. And he thinks that both the lottery and casinos are fundamentally immoral and essentially inherently racist. So also another location, the Burnham lakefront. That's the former Michael Reese hospital site has one hundred acres there. That's just south of fifty five and just south of McCormick place. That's actually close enough for downtown hotels, frankly and then the full market district. I can't see going there. That's already. That's my neighborhood. That's redeveloped at this jam packed over there. I don't see I don't see going on in that area at all the other problem with that Lawrence that there's multiple owners of the property over there. So it'd be a sticky wicket, and it wouldn't be a bloodbath as far as trying to acquire the property, unless like. Eminent domain, took it. We have to make it accessible with parking, and people to be able to get there. Right. So have you, do you, I I'm assuming you don't go to casinos, right? No. But I've actually covered this, this is a big story in Philadelphia when they were trying to develop downtown Philly, and they hidden in northern liberties had built the first downtown casino and it was along the water, and it was a huge deal in terms of residential people in the neighborhood, and who was going to police it. Because sometimes with casinos comes other things and parking was a big deal, I covered it for years, when I was there, I the one Jones, I don't have is gambling. That, that's not a problem for me. I do like to go to casinos for some of the shows some of the entertainers they bring in right? Because I don't have to stand in, you know, dusty lot during the summer festival with no place to sit. I can actually go to a theater and enjoy it and act that I'd like to see and there's several casinos around the hook horn here through Indiana and up in the Michigan that book pretty. Good acts from time to time. So that's, that's the only time I really wind up going to casinos. I don't really go to gamble at all. I I've sat down at a, some Texas holdem poker table in Vegas, years and years ago, and I was wiped out of I think four or five hundred dollars in about it seemed like it was two or three minutes. And I realized you know what? No he can play poker with your cousins those play poker gets pros. Plus, we can't spot the Mark. You know what they say, you are the Mark, and I was obviously, the Mark that day Ed Burke is the Mark now as far as the feds are concerned, we're going to talk with parachutes. He was there at the hearing today. Not much was said, I promised you that would make for some deliciously awkward media moments. Unfortunately, it did not. But the mayor had a certain things to say, and then Mike Emanuel from Fox News, much happening on Capitol Hill, obviously today and Mike will give us an update at five thirty five and you can join at anytime at three one two five nine one eighty nine hundred got a couple text messages.

"Get casinos. And, you know, I think when the states in is better fiscal shape as they are more and more people get on board with it. Lori lightfoot. It sounds like she does support a casino. It sounds like there have been questions about whether or not it's going too far for even her political Illinois had the comparison that the Bill authorizes four thousand gambling positions for Chicago casino, right? Which is even more gambling physicians that exist in the Balaj yo in Las Vegas. Yeah. Hey, so you wonder are they all going to cannibalize each other? Are we going to somehow have ten times, ten x twenty x the the desire for all the gamble? That's a great question. And we did a story a couple of months ago, reporting that for the first time revenue from video gaming machines, was outpacing revenue from casinos in the state of Illinois. So this is a business. That's already been cannibalized. And now you're going to add even more casinos, including one in Chicago. I mean so think about it. There's been a casino for a couple of decades up in Elgin, and then win the rivers casino opened in displaying, Elgin revenue went down. Right. You got a couple in Aurora. Now you're gonna add one in Rockford you're gonna add one in Waukegan in the northern suburbs. You're gonna have one in an as yet to be determined southern suburb that one with the goal of cannibalizing the casinos in northwest. Indiana. With your family house from your childhood. That'd be nice. From I don't think it's big enough. It's a one story ranch. We're gonna need some for needs some more room than that. Piece of it is where does it go? So I heard Michael Reese hospital. Mccormick place old main post office, the seventy eight that neighborhood that runs roughly from in the south loop along the river over into Chinatown wherever it's going go. It's got to be a big location. We've learned but it's interesting because a lot of people said, oh, it makes most sense. Put it at McCormick place that it's attracting tourists and conventioneers, but a lot of people who put on conventions across the country, and in Chicago, don't wanna casino, right next to conventions, because then that hurts their attendance out on the floor, right gambling you need. That's why. That's why actually the horseshoe was always a good. You know, the, the buses would line up and tell you ten minutes to get on the skyway. Avoid the bulletin go I Indiana is making some moves though to row because they just greenlighted about a month or so ago. The, the movement of one of their casinos from buffington harbor to ride along the Boreman. So they're trying to. Yeah. Remember Trump had one down there. I think it was one of those licenses. As we like to say down there. So you still to be determined in terms of where this casinos gonna go or as Willie Wilson remember him casino casino? One thing we do know is that Edberg probably won't be representing the new casino operator in Chicago. Oh, really? Have you heard something? Then why would you say that? Oh my goodness. His lawyer today, I guess. Nope. His lawyer is, Mr. Duffy, Joseph Duffey. Same Joe who represented mR Tony res- co in his corruption. Workout for Tony Risco. Depends on who you ask. I always like it, when, you know, when we used to cover cases down at the federal building. So the defendant supporters. No, no, no, no. He's got the best attorney the best attorney in some wonderfully, regarded attorney. But the reality is you don't get too many wins out of the Dirksen federal building. I looked it up one time. And I think the feds batting average is, like ninety four ninety five percents right to go to trial. Didn't he plead out? Did he plead? I know he did time in prison. I can't remember how it came about Louis Duffy is kind of known.

"Dot weight is two hundred sixty she's lost almost forty pounds. He's six foot three a big, man. And well, six months ago is a mess in the stomach biopsy. And then he had a mess in the Seacombe which is by up seat, and was cancer is any came here because he does not want to have surgery and chemotherapy for this Seco cancer. We see many many men and women with cancer of the colon who don't wish to be treated. They wish to be retrieved with the usual surgery. They wish noninvasive methods. And this is the work. We do we see many people from around the world with cancer cancer. Who? Does not respond to normal treatment or cancer that the patient is doesn't want the normal treatment. And so this is the work that we do every day. Seeing treating men and women and children with cancer. We'll tell you what an eighty one year old man, who's married. He has one son is a replacement is security agent. He had colon cancer. And it was one of the big hospitals in the five boroughs had surgery, and he had no chemo, no radiation. Even though for that kind of cancer, the usual treatment would have been to give radiation. We'll why. Well, a few years later the cancer relapsed. It relapsed any went to a super duper big place. And he had came off therapy and radiation five weeks. He never had surgery. And then he was followed. He was fouled. And over the last four years. He's had a growing mass in the long and the pelvis. But now he comes to me angry that the super duper big place this mass they've been watching for four years growing has never been treated. They never told them about it until recently recently, they did a biopsy of the mass in the lung, and it showed a cancer traveled from the colon to the lung. And now they want to do another biopsy did one by obscene, the long and another biopsies planned in a week or two this is all at one of the super duper big hospitals. Well, his weight is hundred thirty two pounds same as two years ago. He's five foot eight member he has a colon cancer treated years ago. He had incomplete therapy. And then had a relapse in the pelvis, he had chemo and radiation. And then he was fouled. But he wasn't told the results of the scans. Well for years now, he's had a mass that's been growing. And in fact. Four years ago this mass in the chest was seven by five millimeters now at sixteen by ten millimeters. So it's growing it's more than doubled in diameter, which means in volume is growing by about eight hundred percent hit a pet scan at the super duper hospital. They did all these things, but it just didn't communicate with him. And well that mass they treated with the chemo and radiation standard, chemo and radiation is still there. There's another mass in his abdomen. There's other mass in his chest and this other mess in his lung. And they're going through opening up and by all these sites without any treatment. Does not been going on for four years, and he came to me to understand what's going on. Well, he's going to a super duper big place. And they're doing all these tests, but they don't tell him what's going on. And he never understood what's going on until he came here to thirteen eighty four Broadway in here. We finally explained what had happened that the initial treatment was not completely did surgery. But because the surgery failed the cancer came back that they gave standard chemo and radiation because they gave standard chemo and radiation that failed to the cancer traveled to the chest and abdominal lymph nodes and the chest lymph nodes. And now they're by up seeing some hospitals loved to do biopsies. They love to open up people. They love to do surgery. And of course, it's great for the surgeon a great for the hospital. The question is what's great for this patient who now has metastatic. Colon cancer after incomplete initial treatment after inadequate secondary treatment now in his third line treatment with Najah roles in his long, his chest, lymph nodes and abdominal lymph nodes and the same site in the powerless, and he wants to know what his options are. We spoke about all the options including doing what he's doing which is following it for years and years without adequate treatment, we talked about chemotherapy, which could be given in many doctors for stage, four cancer would give chemotherapy for the rest of his life standard radiation. We had that before it didn't work. Very well, the cancer continued to travel had the surgery also which didn't work very well. Danny had standard chemotherapy, which doesn't work very well either because the cancer came back after each one of those and he's here to see if he's a candidate for stereo tactic radio surgery spoke about stereo tactic reasserting in the benefit number one. Is it's fewer treatments. It's more focused. It's more intense. There's less side effects in general because we're able to a more the cancer and avoid healthy tissues. So for this man who had a colon cancer years ago inadequately treated, then recurrence inadequately treated with chemo radiation now with metastases to the lung and to the lymph nodes this is the work that we do every day. Why why are we I in America was started tactic radio surgery? Well, simply ferment like this who has had treatment didn't work went to one of the super duper big places in New York City still with metastatic cancer having treatment, not working being cut open for multiple sites. And wondering what his future is. Now, he knows there can be not invasive treatment. Gil Liederman just introduce myself.
