"Ask Mitch Albom show now here's match seven six I don't know about you but I'm always fascinated about stories of the oldest living people in the country or in the world or whatever when I read them or hear about them I always want to look into well how did they right and what was it that was there so is there some universality to this longevity so I read with great interest the news that Robert Weighton W. E. I. G. H. T. O. N. passed away yesterday at the age of a hundred and twelve wow there is a photo of him two years ago so it was a hundred and ten honestly he looks like he's about sixty eight yeah he's got he's got all his hair it's it's not even all white it's you know sort of silver this is two years ago so I don't know if it's is pictured here in two thousand eight so immediately I was looking at that and then I went through his life and in in his case he was born in nineteen oh eight nineteen oh eight so what when was Kitty Hawk wasn't right around then not the write brothers wasn't like that nineteen nineties no none of that would be all for one they were flying before that I was in the is what I don't know six or three year whatever Antena three was it three so so an airplane has been infected five years earlier World War one had not even started yet we still could get a P. that's on the flight but it like I love little thinking about well what was it when you look at nothing he remembers when he was born but what was the world like when he was born in nineteen oh eight is amazing yeah and yet when I read through his life it wasn't he didn't like living in Asha ram or even berry user something that he was it was it was a fairly normal is is British and it so he he was one of seven children in the English city of whole he left school at sixteen became a marine engineering apprenticeship it was over there he moved to Taiwan I spent a couple years learning Mandarin in teaching a missionary school in the thirties he married a fellow teacher and then they came back to England which coincided with the outbreak of World War two two years ago I had to live through two world wars and and they were sent to Canada and then they moved to Connecticut here in the U. S. he worked in a factory making planes to support the British war effort they stayed here until nineteen forty five warranted they went back to England he went on to teach at a university his wife died in nineteen ninety five and he has ten grandchildren twenty five great grandchildren but there is nothing about like yes and all I ate was looking up this story don't always have Mr rodrico liquor everyday yeah expresses motor yeah there's a the key is having a cigarette they're having lots of talk glass of whiskey milk every day the clear does have a CNE died peacefully in his sleep which you love to hear them you know why not and and and clear he must've had some had a hair because of you should see all there is got any error in it when he's a hundred and ten I mean this is some point ball this just gives up okay we're not getting this guy with the talkers Oregon you can't tell exhibiting down most of the pictures but he was hailed every city viewed everyone else's brother or sister believes in loving and accepting and caring for one another had many many friendships read and talk politics theology ecology and more right up until his death so he was talking you know right right he stayed in his own home Michael died in his own home declined a birthday card from the queen because he said he didn't want the taxpayers to have to pay for that is admirable yeah and they asked him his secret well it is the here are a couple of quotes to the BBC one I think laughter is extremely important I can't deny that to most of the trouble in the world is caused by people taking themselves too seriously not right now and three the secret to his longevity was to avoid dying which exceeded its do not rent a bus what you see avoiding died was because of the will because a lot of little you could do the job yeah you too don't you want to like sort of study it may because I just finished the human touch where blood was so important terms how fights all this what did you want to study the guy's blood or brain it's a look what is it I went to a hundred and twelve lived on his own was lucid he did he actually had cancer at the end but by that aids cancer move so strongly that you know they probably didn't determine if it was worth it but but I want to hear like something about the diet or all eight was grass for the last thirty years of my life you know or park of industry there is a there is a great Mel Brooks routine that he does with Carl Reiner the two thousand year old that's great where he interviews him and he says you know what what's your what's the key to your longevity you know and and he talks like an old Yiddish you know Jewish guys as veiled to live our Reiner says all all yes of course the will to live will this is not dovetail to live villians to live Dr William to live CDS it can't be alive all these years and so then they say to him what what did you eat you know what did you eat that allow you to stay alive he sold my diet is very very very very very very very very restricted very restricted they say well you can you eat you know me no no you can't eat meat meat stable for you can you eat chicken no no chicken give yet I had to concede I a dying to give me a gaudy Eisele spring outing ahead what what about this what about that you know about vegetable vegetables give you gas at my age I'm a blues and I'm going to die you know so it's just what's left to eat he says cool mountain spring water cool mountain spring water ten degrees below room temperature ECOWAS's that's it that's it that's it just a little water that's just a little that and a stuffed cabbage cabins that's terrible but I'm not going to just live a little water I can't help myself and and that's what I always envisioned you know like if you grill these guys down you know well yes I only ate this and then do that either but but yes I also had one pint of ice cream every night of my European gene pool so anyhow he's passed in his sleep at that that's the the fitting way to go why why suffer in any way at a hundred and twelve years old and now someone else gets the title because he took it like there was a Japanese guy want to not be his name was it was a hundred and twelve but like a few days beyond but he died in February so then this guy Bob Weighton became the oldest man now someone else is out there I don't know you know there's a list I think

"mitch albom" Discussed on Le Batard and Friends - South Beach Sessions
"Who were coming to feed her crack cocaine while he was at basketball practice in so he was big kid so he just stood on the porch and when they would come you'd have his hands dug in his pocket pretending he had a gun. Whatever and they would walk away and that's why had quit now. That's not an everyday story. No permits you had so many of them. It's not an everyday story but Detroit seem to have more of a Miami had plenty of them but you found so many stories like that and I remember admiring men. This dude is going into the grit of his city and he's finding the stuff that's real and human and no one is looking for for. The Grit of our city isn't far from the guild of our city. That's the thing you know. It's blocks away. The crappy parts. Detroit are very close to the resurgence of Detroit. Even now you only have to be everybody talks about how the trump is coming back and there is a a str- avenue Woodward Avenue which is kind of a Broadway which everything is kind of on and go but you go half a mile to the right or the left and you can find any one of those stories so you know I felt. It was my obligation. I thought I wasn't put here for by accident and I could do more good writing about those stories than my friend. Like Lupu who I do. The sports reporters with I remember Mike All those years. Mike would say I write about stars. People know about stars I read about stars and I remember thinking I do. Exactly what am I doing wrong? I'm not writing about anybody. Anybody knows about but you know everybody has a different path and I guess that was my so. How does it end up happening? So you're writing Tuesdays with Morrie and at the time are you seeing? Wow this is going to be powerful content. Like how much is because you were saying. You were wildly ambitious right before that but you learned all sorts of things in there that offered you like sort of spiritual moments of clarity right like what ended up becoming a commercial success. Was it at least in part because of your ambition or were you just sent there by love. No you know and I didn't go there to write a book. I went there to visit with him and At one point you know after a few visits he suggested that we tape our conversation so that I be able to listen to him after he was gone you know and so we started recording them and it was only after. He told me that he was in debt up to his eyeballs because he had taken Alex loans. And you know he couldn't eat and have a good severance going to have tenure deal with his university. He had to pay for two years of worth of people coming to the House because he was dying at home not in hospital and he said I'm going to die and then my family's GonNa have to sell the house because they don't have money to pay these bills in it's killing me. I'm GONNA die twice. And that was the whole for Tuesdays with Morrie and I started going around to publishers in New York and asking them if they could if they were interested in. Could they give just enough money to pay his bills and most of them? Dan said no they weren't even interested in it was boring. It was depressing was a sports writer. Who would read a book like that so I had no confidence even when we found one publisher they gave us the money. I gave all the money to Moore and said you know. Pay Your bills and there was just enough to pay his bills and I always thought I would say you know. Tuesday's more ended for me that day because I finally come around and done one. Nice thing back for this guy who was doing all these nice things for me and I wrote the book really. We're obligated to write the book you know but nobody thought it was going to be successful book. I thought I'd get laughed at. You know in the sports writing community for trying to write the soft a spiritual a spiritual book. Yeah hold on a second if I may because a lot of the people listening to this might be younger and they might not even know what it is that we're talking about as ridiculous as that seems because you wrote a book while not the Koran or the Bible. You wrote a book that people remember and those are rare to come by and so that book and you explain to people the success that it had for the people listening. Don't understand that this level of success has happened. Maybe two five authors ever. Well I'll explain it but I don't WanNa take any credit for it but what happened was They printed twenty thousand copies total and we thought that that would be all that would be. I'd be selling them out of the trunk of my car for the rest of my life. You know and when it came came on August that ever green month for new publications August. That's when you're on a read a book on a spiritual book at that so nobody had any plans for. Didn't it didn't do anything. It just came out and it just kind of sat there you know in terms of sales and things like that but these were the days which are gone now. When bookstores small independent bookstores would sort of pass on books and it started to get this little following independent bookstores would pass it on on a pass it on and it just started to build and they had to go back and reprint but they would reprint like thousand at a time because they said well this is real you nine thousand two thousand and so if you ever look at the front at. Tuesday's more it has like one hundred seventy five printings because I always say. Don't be impressed by that. It's like the first one hundred fifty two thousand at a time and and then it just sort of started to catch on showed up on a bestsellers list in I think November. After it'd come out not August. Usually most books are gone by then and it just started to slowly rise up and then Oprah Winfrey had me on your show for five minutes and I remember I did a five minute segment at the end of show she was doing with Elizabeth Kubler. Ross about that and when I got done the president of Harpo whatever has to see me and he said that was very interesting. Little segment you did. At the end there is a thanks. He said you know. How many books do you have out there now and I said I don't I don't know he said well you better tell your publisher print like two hundred thousand books because that was a powerful segment and I said Would you mind if I dial number in New York right now? Would you say what you just said to me to the person on the other end of the phone and he laughed and said sure so. We've called the publisher and I said listen. I'm sitting here in Chicago. That's where she was with a president of Harpo and he He has something to say so he got him phone and he said Yeah we just did a segment with Michio was really powerful and you know. I think you should have a couple of hundred thousand books out there when this airs in a couple of weeks so they hung up and they printed five thousand and they ran out of books right before Christmas. When that's no hold on a second this this has a happy ending. This all has a happy ending. But so hold on. This is pre Internet. Okay and this is Oprah Winfrey at basically the height of she she can make anything go viral right. And so you go on there you do something that's heartfelt emotional and pure in spirit because you're just trying to help how. What was the nature of his debt can? Can we get into the specifics? He died from Lou Gehrig's disease and he owed Very low six figures In IN MONEY. Which was you know? I mean you know single digits six figures and so you know we. The money went to pay his bills and take care of his family. And all that and that was fine by me. I wasn't doing it to make money and I was just trying to go back to be in a sports writer in surprised that I even got asked. I don't know how Oprah Winfrey found the book I mos- like I reached out to where I couldn't even get on interviews because nobody wanted talk to me because I was a sports writer and they said you know he's not the regular. They couldn't even get on sports programs. Because we don't talk about a dying old man died from Lou Gehrig's disease so there really wasn't that much publicity or anything like that. It just sucked quarter grew and to get to the end of it. Because I don't want to spend a lot of time with what am I? Okay no but okay look. I know there's a lot of ego here here but it's one of the great success stories in the history of writing because if there are many people here who might not have any idea how big that book ended up becoming well cut to the end. It's now the biggest selling memoir in the history of publishing and I don't know how many copies got twenty million or something like that are purchased. But there's also it's taught school systems around the world. Starting all over America in junior highs in even elementary schools sometimes colleges. It's taught in Australia. China Japan Sweden. It's fifty two languages or fifty two countries in forty seven languages. And so I you know the breath of it goes on and on and his teaching goes on and on which I'm happy about you know people but again I don't take credit for. Its not my writing. That may choose as with Maury an embrace book. It's the wisdom that Morrie had and shared that I wrote down. You know I'm Aristotle Plato. Or Plato Darris. Whichever one was the one who wrote down with the other ones that And so I never kidded myself that it was about me but I'm glad that is words or are still being taught an interesting. We can never read a word of it. You know so you think about that. And when I talk about what I've learned from Tuesday's with Morrie I always say you never know the impact. You're going to have on another person that affects another person that affects another personnel affects the world. Maurice Schwartz died. You know not ever knowing that a book was ever. GonNa come out about him. And now they're millions and millions and millions of people around the world who know who he is and and and and have shaped their lives at least in a small way by his philosophy and he's not even here to see that happen so we never know in no the ripples in the pond that were making with our existence. And right there. At that crossroads like you can point to that time learning about death learning about mortality inspecting at an interesting age your own ambition your own ego. Your own. Need to climb professionally. You can point to watching your teacher. Your literal teacher die as the time that your path sort of shifted not to say that we don't have our selfish moments now too but your path shifted to realizing. Oh I need to be a vehicle for something larger than just sports stories that feed my ego. Well Yeah Now yes absolutely. That was the moment to change and it. You know it wasn't even me making that decision. It was the world around me making that decision. Perfect example. Before Tuesday's more came out you know I was on. Espn and people knew my face and they would stop me in airports. And they'd say things like Hey Mitch Albom. Espn WHO's GonNa Win Super Bowl and I would say you know patriots and just kind of go up the escalator. Patriots Watt. By and then after Tuesday's more came out after a little bit People would stop me in airports but they would say hey My mother was dying from cancer. And we just read your book together. That was the last thing we did together. Can I? Can I talk to you about it? And you can't say Patriots go up the escalator. You have to stop and that Dan has happened to me starting then every single day of my life if I go out in public and sometimes hundreds of times in the day I do a speech or at appearance..

Yeah. Who gets the front seat of the car where they sit in the car work now. Well. Yeah. I think that's more of a kids arguing with one another. And then you get into the argument with the kids because they're fighting with one another. So that's number five siblings fighting with one another, and that can the draws the parents in to the argument because, you know, stop fighting with your brother SAFA because let's face it. What are you hear from two to twelve year olds all the time? He hit me took my toy he won't let share and then. And then you start getting into an argument that we give them the toy.

"Or Twitter said at Mitch Albom show. Now, here's Mitch. There. I'm still trying to get over that egg. Just thrown me, the AIG is going. Yeah. The well just because that that many people would just go on and look at an egg. By the way. Did you see that the adult airlines passenger got a gun through security and onto a plane in Atlanta? And I'm sure that the TSA which is down to. More skeleton like crews and people not getting paid. And this isn't going to be the the last of this. Right. Well, and they were claiming in that story. I saw that to staffing was not an issue. So you're right when the staffing becomes an issue. It seems like this is going to be more and more of kind of. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, somebody managed to get on. How do you get a gun through anyone who has anyone who has been pulled aside? I pulled aside because you know, that feeling everybody knows this feeling it's crowded you put your bags on. You finally get in line you go through the metal detector, you come out your bags have not come out yet. You start to get that sinking feeling. Oh, please come through. Please be the next one that comes through the thing. Please be the next one that comes through but outcomes a pocketbook outcomes a pair of high heeled shoes outcome someone else's stuffed backpack and not your thing. And then you make that dreaded lean in and you see that they have pulled your bag. Your bag and not only have they pulled your bag, but there are four other bags that have been pulled as well, and yours is the fourth. Then you look ahead, and you see one TSA person who is going through these pulled bags, and you realize you're going to have to wait for four more of these pulled bags, plus the whole exercise that that guy does when he walks saunters back and says who's this? Who's this? Who's baggage this hesitate to answer? And then someone finally answers. Do you have all your possessions, ma'am? I don't know when you have all your possessions, come meet me over here. Like, they can't start looking through your bag until they see that you've got all your other stuff. Why? So after waiting for four people to get their bags checked and finally who's biogas it right here. Do you have? Yes, I have all my possess. Come down meet me over here. You come down. And they put that picture up that looks like the inside of a hamburger right that that that that scan that they took that is the the one that it looks like a hamburger with ketchup mustard and everything all together. And that's what it looks like and some other staring at this. And you're going. And then they open it up. Is there anything sharp inside? This too will hurt me. Yes. It's going to open up in a big giant scissors are gonna come out cut your nose switchblade. That's how I like to open my back because the bag knows if it's me or if it's you. So it's going to cut your nose off not mine. What did you say? Yes. Then who opens the bag? So then they finally open your bag and they start pulling stuff out. And you dare to say. Can I ask you what you're looking for? Maybe I can help. Well, there's something that showed up on the scan here, sir. Okay. Finally, when they go through every single thing, you know, ended up being a bag of almonds. You know, like a small little bag of almonds that you buy it a little for some reason, they'll go this is it I go those are almond. Yeah. On the scan showed up is something else. I said what pecans? It doesn't look like a bomb some back of Albert's little and for this. You're sitting there and then the insult to injury. They try to close your bag backup after you. So carefully packed it and put everything ripped through the whole thing. And they pushed the top over there. Pulling on the zipper, and the, you know, they're just doing this, basically until you'll say, I'll get it. Okay. Okay. And sometimes just stand. There is no you pack, it I already did this once this morning, and then you took it all apart because of my almonds. That's great. We have a call here is Chris. Hi, chris. You're on the Mitch Albom show. Go ahead. Chris the story to tell. Chris retired or three third. Anyhow, so somebody got a gun through security. Did they say it was a metal gear? Because you know, you've got those paper guns. Now, anything those ones. The ones you do. Got it through. How how do they know? There's somebody say I got a gun gun owner. A source the airline. Told ABC news a gun owner filled airline workers in on what occurred upon arriving in Japan was going to Japan. That makes me wonder. So was he trying to pull a fast one just to see if you could get away with it? Or did he remember, oh, I have a gun in my suitcase? When the passenger was fully cooperative with authorities flew from Atlanta to reader Japan was met by Japanese authorities on landing. Wow. Feel safer flying and get a gun through. Yes. Yes. Kevin. So it again, Kevin Neal went out. Yeah. You know, what happened Kevin? So you can get a gun through. What was the joke? Oh, you missed a good part. We'll be the judge if it's a good partner take to you can get a gun through. But God forbid you should try to get through a tube of Colgate. Right or a bag of all for that. You there are some international law and smugglers, though, Mitch. Probably overlook never know. How many were there? Mitch ten. Okay. I think the eight th they wouldn't let you go. If it was eight. We'll try those make sure that they're not. Laced with. Will you take almonds again? Mitch. No. And now they've now some of the places that telling you take all food out of your bags like you can't you can't even put food through even candy bars. Really? Yeah. Well that begs the question, why were you traveling with? Over time. You you're in an airport, you're hungry. You buy vagabond? You throw it in your bag for later or something like that. I don't know. It wasn't like wasn't it. Like, I I stayed up all night packing. The last one, I thought you pack. They were just in there from a previous trip. Jack. Sundry store.

Rens hospital and everything like that. But you know, I had to reach out when I can. You know whether it'd be through social media messages or or when I have time to go in may of two thousand sixteen you declared that you're cancer free and you began working out shortly thereafter. How has your life changed since you've been declared cancer? Free and how is it affecting your perspective? Ma'am. Just forever grateful that I've opportunity to be back playing a game. Again, a life has changed because you not, I, I'm part of something bigger and football. Now, you know, you know the the Kansas communities like a rather hood allows me to connect with people any color, any race, any gender first hand. 'cause I know what they went through now. So now it's like people who aren't even fancy football or know anything about what they know me as the survivor, you know. So really dislike the audience and people that I've read that that I can connect with is way bigger than just the football audience. And so. So I'll always have reviver our attached to my name. And what's your message to all the people out there who are looking to you for inspiration James, that there's life after and life after tragedy. Never. You can't escape it. I that's number one message and also keep the faith you know through through God, but you know that that wasn't my first tragedy in life, and it won't be my last one. You know, hope it's not as worse as that, but basically, you know, there's going to be tough times in life, but I like to be able to give others hope that when their situation, you know, it'll come and go and and it'd be life after that. So this season's been going great for you so far. What is there left for you to do this season? James. Oh, man. There's a lot of, you know these on paper, but you know, there's when I watched a film. That's the thing that I'm learning every week that you learn something new about yourself, and there's always mistakes after every game. So all matters. There's a lot a lot of football left and there's a lot more can do. You know, just with this with the ball in hands in the ball without without the ball. So we have a lot of football left, so and every week is new week, and I've a lot the proves to. What have you learned from the Levy on Bill situation yourself? Right now? You know, I really haven't been focusing much on it to be honest. I know that there's definitely business sides of it. You know, it's, I know loving, I love the game of football, and I know he wants to be here playing, but that's kinda the part that I don't know is what's going on. I kind of behind the same. So I know he loves the game. He loves to compete helluva player. And so I know if he'd be here, you know, if you if you know things worked out. So really out, I'm not, I'm I'm not really saying much attention to it. I've is waiting to see him when he when he gets back. And when he does get bags going to be a tough time for defense because you know me and him. We bring a lot to the table. That'd be quite a combination to have you and him in the backfield there.

"Katie you're on the Mitch Albom program. Hi, katie. That's okay afternoon. Yeah. Yeah. So I so this this guy's been six times by the FBI, and this woman civic duty to step up now. So she let all of these can become go up the ranks in the judgeship. All the way to this point. And yet she founded her civic duty to step up now. Unbelievable to me unbelievable. And to your point earlier. Sorry. There's my earlier you stated that, you know, something in highschool can that follow you around Kenny? God bless 'em. I saying, oh, no. He shouldn't have you know, if he's guilty of this. Yes. Okay. This is a heinous crime that he's accused up, but for her to step up first duty at this point, I met I I'm really not convinced. And. His his. His testimony all of his witnesses. You know that this is not the man that he nor the judge. He's lived in exemplary life. If he screwed up in high school, and that's a big screw up. If he did do it. But I don't think he really did do it. He kept to her reality and other people call about helping her reality. That's true. It's her reality. Well, I mean, you know. Depending on how you want to argue it you can make a compelling case. Either way we were in here with some people earlier as we've been sitting and listening to it. And someone said, you know, she can't remember the house that this took place in now. That's that you know, people are mystified by that you remember something. That's so scarred. You and you don't even remember what house it was what weekend it was where it was or anything like that every as this person pointed out every detail that could prove true or false. You don't remember? But yet you remember every detail about something that haunted you for all these years who am I to say if that's how the mind works or the brain works. I don't know he seems to have everything on his side in terms of like background checks. Witnesses the certainly the numbers if this were a statistical thing, he's Dan Marino. He's got all the numbers, you know. But yet she certainly makes a very compelling. You listen to where you go. How could she be lying? And this is of course, the conundrum about all this eight seven seven. Who like the last caller because to me, I don't think that has any relevance that could be a political thing. And now, but if you're talking about just the case, the time shouldn't even bother to you either way you four, oh, I don't know. I think you can make an argument that time does matter. I think that the time to to of course, come forward. This was a time when it happened. But then does it change. If it's twenty years, does it change the guy has risen pretty high. I'm talking about the time from the from the letter to the end of the into the confirmation hearing when this came out that time that wasn't her doing on the letter was the last call was saying time where they brought. No, I think she was saying okay age fifteen. Mad at all. Because he another do with neither one of them. Did that's how long things take to get done with politics. Eight seven seven forty four Mitch debut on the Mitch Albom show. Hi, Ohio coming in go on. Yes. Yes. I think I have an overall summation of this and just a few points to make and I hope everyone listens to this. And that is this is basically what we have here is is is practical theology and hype Yaojie, it's a classic battle between good and evil. We wait. We want righteousness truth together country. Okay. What liberals tall truth and love is inside their soul. But we as Christians we must pray for God's intervention. It's ground zero. For Christianity be they choose Christians or loophole impressions to examine themselves and vote very important. Okay. I'm gonna you know, I appreciate that. But I stay a little closer on topic Mitchell on the Mitch Albom show. Hi. Yeah. Just wanted to to say that. Breath Kavanagh's definitely innocent. I mean, a pillar of today's Justice and actually I mean throughout her entire country's history. Justice system is innocent until proven guilty. Unfortunately, this is the situation that absolutely cannot be verified. It's all circumstantial, and I mean, any definitive evidence. And so all that it can't be definitive that has to be innocent. So he has to be. Well, you know, it's very interesting. You say that because earlier today I heard, and I did not know this in that state. There is no statue of limitations. So theoretically, he could be charged with the crime of sexual assault and be convicted you could go to go to jail before this in theory. But that would be a place where exactly the rule that you just said innocent until proven guilty would be in play. This is not that place. And here's where I think, you know, I get no matter what my personal takers. I don't know what my personal take is. I really am going left and right now, I'm moving around. But one thing I think needs to be said this is not about him going free or going to jail. This is not about her going free or going to jail. What this is alternately about is a job promotion, we need to say that this is about a job promotion what he is understandably upset about and feeling like is being taken from him. What is a job promotion. That's it. It's not an endemic. Right. It's not a human, right? He's not the only person who can do the job. There are other people who can do the job. This is a job promotion, and it does need to be looked at through that lens of okay? Yeah. He might be telling the truth, and she might be imagine. If this was for a job in your in your company where you work. This was for who was going to be the new CEO who going to be the new vice president of marketing, and you had this on this side. And this on this side, you might come to the conclusion say, you know, what he might very well be innocent. He might very well not done this. But at this point, we can't give this promotion to this guy. There's just too much baggage to it. It's not going to end his life. You're not you're not convicting him to hell, you're not sending him to jail, and that does need to be remembered in this process here because premium court is a very very important position. And there are more than one person who could do the job. I'm not saying what should happen. I'm just saying you have to kick in the conscious feels like trial. It's not a trial. Do you think? Clarence Thomas was tainted. I think for a while certainly he was I still think there are people who when they say his name, you know, say oh, yeah. He was I. Sherry similar Vicki matching Clarence Thomas today in the in the world within which we live in terms of Twitter and all the instant kind of come to judgment. I think it would have been very much like what we're seeing right now. Right. And that whole thing about, you know, the coke can and the pubic hair and all the rest of it would have been emojis about that. And all that here's a last look at the traffic.
