"I'm Coast offense and coordinator all those things in my career. I think it helps the offense more than it helps the defense. Now the defense can communicate and make the adjustments that offense and things like that. But the offense, you know, has the luxury this year because of Cove it that there's not. There's not a loud stadium is not like you know, communication is very, very difficult and you can hear and you have to. You know those processes that an office goes through and you're playing on the road is usually a lot more difficult than it is when you're playing at home, so Right now, Every stadium you go to is about the same, so both sides can communicate well, and that's really I think the advantage for the offense right now. Yeah, it would've been a lot louder is the farm two weeks ago? E. I'm pretty sure it's gonna be interesting to be playing. You're here in l a guy. Obviously you spent some time at U C l A. Have you ever been to the Coliseum when there weren't a lot of people there, though? No, that's that's been, You know, That was the you sell a USC game, and that was always a packed stadium where they have the Rose Bowl at the Coliseum. So it'll be interesting. You know, it'll be interesting to just walk out on that field was a huge stadium and then nobody's in it. It's you know, so it's definitely a very feeling. But, um No, it would be is definitely gonna be a different type of look than what I've seen. In my experience. We've had, uh, extra week to get healthy. Thank goodness.

You know, we had to train a couple other tight ends that kind of get some significant work to get them caught up to what we're doing offensively, So it was a good way to kind of get those guys cut up. Who are these new tight ends that you have that have been practicing so hard and have no game experience? Thies guys, We're going to see the field this.

"I hope that less than. Clapping in his prayer. Professor stanford. I enjoying the music love it. Thank you. Well, if you wrote this book you have to enjoy that. I mean, I just make that inference, although it may not be called for folks. It's the day before Christmas. This is the Dennis Prager show. And there is a new book out the man who invented Christmas how Charles Dickens a Christmas, Carol, which everybody knows rescued his career and revived our holiday spirits. Mr. Stanford is a professor in the creative writing program at Florida international university in Miami. I have it. All correct. That's right. I'm the director of that program. Even more honored, sir. Thank you. Thank you for joining us is. This is a fascinating story in and of itself. About how Charles Dickens is largely responsible for the way. We celebrate Christmas in the west is that fair to say, I think it is all thanks to a work of fiction. A very his little careless. He called it. Yeah. It's it's very rare that a one work has such an impact as a Christmas Carol has a had western society. Tell us here. Here's what's so interesting. I guess a lot of people know this, but ally Goso suspect a lot don't what was Christmas in England and America prior to dickens. Well, you might think that dickens climbed on the Christmas bandwagon is way of revitalizing his career. But the truth is is as you as you come to find out dickens, built the wagon. There wasn't any Christmas to speak up at the time. He had been on the church calendar since the fourth century AD when it was created, and but it had fallen into disrepute from the middle of the seventeenth century. When the Puritans took hold of parliament and declared the celebration illegal because it had gotten out of hand. It became was at the time this sort of excuse for a month long back on all. This is here, for example, folks, just to give an example you right here by the early sixteen hundred the excesses of Christmas keepers in England had only increased when such practices as mummifying had become common. What is mummy among other things? Mumbling? The men and women were wont to exercise their passion for the season by exchanging their clothing and going for one neighbor's house to the next engaging in the sorts of behavior that one might expect when undressing and cross dressing or involved. That's why the Puritans bend. That's that's that's right. I'm not making this up. Well, that's why your book is so interesting. They and and of course, what that that ban on the celebration of Christmas, which was also instituted in the Massachusetts colony for a time in the seventeenth century of while those laws had been rescinded still Christmas was rarely celebrated. It was known. It's passing had been lamented upon by other writers before dickens, Washington Irving, and and to Walter Scott among them, but dickens came along and said, we're not we're not going to just lamented. We're going to do something about it. He was very proactive. And he he felt that his book would in fact, make a difference and was one of those rare. So so is thickens coming to this from a religious conviction that Christmas needs to be cleaned up and celebrated or what where is he coming from his dickens was no friend of organized, politics or religion. They was nominally an Anglican but didn't practice at eight impact. A unitarian at the time that that he wrote this book, you know, what they say about Unitarians, they believe in it most one God. Well, that that lack of their lack of canton and pomp and circumstance attracted to them at any rate when he sat down to write a Christmas, Carol what he wanted to do was celebrate what he considered to be the the spirit of season. The celebrate the family unit and the strength was to be derived there and to remind everyone that that no matter how difficult your own circumstances were that there were people in worst rates and to remind others of the need for charity at the time and not a bad tonic for our own time. But why did he pick on Christmas? Well, because he felt the heat always had a soft spot for Christmas like Irving and Scott new of new of the practice was sentimental about it had. Seeing Christmas trees thought it was a wonderful idea and and sawn opportunity. I guess you could say the bring something that he thought of value to the forefront of the attention of of the world around them. All right now, I'm I want wanna go back here to the extent that you're I know you're you're obviously your book is about what dickens did. But I know, you know, about what Christmas was prior to consumption. I don't understand if a lot of people in the west use. It is time for buck an hour almost or Rio de Janeiro carnival atmosphere. Okay. Fine. But I have to believe that believing Christians were pious Christians. If we even have to go that far. Did not do those things on Christmas. Why wasn't Christmas more important to them? Well, it just it's offered under that cloud of suspicion that had. Have begun to be created there. And in the middle sixteen hundreds and just never recovered at the chief Christian holiday was Easter. And that was the pious Holiday Inn and Christmas had been a creation of the church from the beginning. You know, a way of increasing those enticing the pagans to help support swelled the numbers of the roles of the membership rolls back in the fourth century, and at to the pagans were only too happy to come over. And celebrate a an alternative to saturnalia which is what they call their year end celebration. But being pagans they continued to celebrate it pretty much the way they always by the way, just a apropos here and more to my audience that even specifically the u the that there would be any pagan origin to any monotheistic practice is no trouble to this monotheist. The it's the pouring of valuable wine into old bottles. That has always done. I mean, it's done in Judaism Christianity, and it goes in invalidate the importance of the holiday people think. Oh, well, I can I can point to. A non Christian origin or a non Jewish origin to some Jewish. So what it's been made of it that matters. I just want to add that to those of you as I feel logically inclined back to back to Charles Dickens. People. How did they become familiar with a Christmas? Carol did they see it performed? Or did they did they read it? Well, all six thousand copies of it were snapped up immediately upon the publication, and what year was that. This was eighteen forty three time period referred to as the hungry forty so pretty grim time and and British economic history. I might add so six thousand copies is a very big deal. Well, six thousand copies wasn't very much compared to what dickens had been selling with the old curiosity shop, for instance, one hundred thousand oh, oh, why was he depth them? Well, because he had four children a fist on the way. He become the sole source of support for his mother and his father other members of his family did not live of profligate lifestyle. But he was paid in installments as it were. And is when and he'd written a couple of bomb books books that were not providing any return. The first Il Il start one was American notes an account of his travels as visit to the United States in eighteen forty two. And it was very critical of the of the US and. Pretty mean spirited town, not popular on either side of the Atlantic, obviously. And well, the Brits had heard it all before from other authors who've done the same thing. And certainly the Americans weren't happy about being pilloried the way he did. And then he followed that up with a book called Martin chuzzlewit, which was meant to be a sort of a parody of of English manners of the country, gentry. But was.

"I hope that less than. Clapping in his chair. Professor stanford. I enjoying the music love it. Thank you. Well, if you wrote this book you have to enjoy that. I mean, I just make that inference, although it may not be called for folks. It's the day before Christmas. This is the Dennis Prager show. And there is a new book out the man who invented Christmas how Charles Dickens a Christmas, Carol, which everybody knows rescued his career and revived our holiday spirits. Mr. Stanford is a professor in the creative writing program at Florida international university in Miami. Do I have it. All correct. That's right. I'm the director that program. Even more honored, sir. Thank you. Thank you for joining us is. This is a fascinating story in and of itself. About how Charles Dickens is largely responsible for the way. We celebrate Christmas in the west is that fair to say, I think it is all thanks to a work of fiction. A very his little careless. He called it. Yeah. It's it's very rare that a one work has such an impact as a Christmas Carol has a had western society. Tell us here. Here's what's so interesting. I I guess a lot of people know this. But. Also suspect a lot don't what was Christmas in England and America prior to dickens. Well, you might think that dickens climbed on the Christmas bandwagon as way of revitalizing his career. But the truth is is as you as you come to find out dickens, built the wagon. There wasn't any Christmas to speak up at the time. He it.

"Philadelphia. That was so beautiful, and such a tense dramatic piece of music and ends in grand matter. How do you bring it to life? How do you bring that drama out in a piece like that? So I take violin classes with Kimberly Fisher. And our second class you brought in an actress, and she taught us different acting techniques and stuff so Kim's idea of bringing the actor to the class was for us to get a sense to bring it bring our Interactor so bringing in the actress in teaching us how to use our inner thoughts. A kind of helped me bring out the actor inside of the peace and to bring the drama to the peace, and how cool that as a musician. You can be an actor who plays many different roles within one piece of music, and certainly over the course of a concert to be the director too. So I I love that comparison. Well, we mentioned before about the fantastic music program at temple prep and the settlement music school. But you're the product of another outstanding youth music program here in Philadelphia. Yeah. I was a part of the plan. Philly program. I'm now an alum that program so plan Philly originated from the stem program. And then Mr. Stanford Thomas he brought it to our school the same Francis diesel school, which is a school in west Philadelphia. It an elementary school from K through eight and so every afternoon from like two thirty to five thirty we would have different classes, and we picked we each pick their instruments. So I picked the violin. And I would have like their requires group lessons in like orchestra rehearsals. Incredible play on Philly doing amazing things here in the city. You have some really exciting news that we have to talk about tell everyone where you're going to be studying violin this fall. And how you ended up going there this fall, I'll be attending the Royal College of music in London..

"I want wanna make very clear Mr. Stanford that my position on Vietnam has been probably that of being one of the most persistent critics over for the last four years of anybody in America, criticized the military conduct of the war. We wasted our military power by using it ineffective leader. I criticized particularly the fact that we have failed to recognize the administration that true character the war that it's primarily a war that is not military in character. It's a worker people rather than territory, and we failed to win the people the people in it. I also criticized, and I still criticized the administration but failing to recognize it when you get into this kind of war. Our goal must be to help them fight the war not fight the war for them. We didn't train the South Vietnamese just as the same mistake we made in Korea. And there's only one vanfleet corrected that mistake and Korea that we were able to develop the power there that was one of the factors that brought the power balance. So that we were able to end that war. And Finally, I would say on Vietnam. I think we failed to arm the American people with the truth. I think the administration, frankly, if it had laid it on the line and told us why remember there, and how much it was going to cost and hadn't taken us up the hill down the hill. It might have been that this war would have had greater support than his hat. That's all in the past. Now. Let's look, right. Where we are. Right now. Negotiations are going on in Paris. I do not know how those negotiations will come out. They do not appear to be too hopeful. But there is apparently some chance some chance that they might succeed. Now as a potential president and Mr. Humphries in exactly the same class as a potential president. If I say now if these negotiations fail, I'll do this or that that makes sure that those negotiations are going to fail. And so consequently, I'm not going to state a position as to what I would do if the negotiations fail. I have made it clear to president Johnson. I made it clear to the country. We can have only one president at a time. And if president Johnson can bring this water conclusion before this election, more power to them. That's the American boys. Stop. But if it doesn't happen, and then the election does occur. Then I believe that the country will want new leadership. Now the question is are you going to turn to Mr. Humphry on the one side? Are you gonna turn Nixon on the.

"I'm John Batchelor. This is the John Batchelor show. Edward ball is the author of the inventor and the Tikoo a gilded age murder and the birth of motion pictures, and we will get to motion pictures because maybe bridge, you might have guessed is the man who has the genius idea of how to make his pictures move. He's a very enterprising photographer. I our we have Edward Edwards a profile of Leland Stanford who becomes part of the central Pacific. The great railroad magnates of the post civil war period. The the last spike is driven in eighteen sixty eight and they become wealthy beyond imagination in the latter. Part of the nineteenth century known as the gilded age. Meanwhile, Edward my bridge has been home with his mother and his family residence until the war's over and he comes back and in that period. He's been trying to invent things like washing machines. But there are a lot of vendors of that like good printing techniques for. Putting color and in tagliatelle printing. And he goes off to Paris at one point and stumbles across photography, which was all the rage in Paris, photography was the new technology their digital age, and he immediately takes to it Edward. It was as if he'd been looking forward his whole line. Yes. A team someone's like an accident. That's why rich would would encounter this this new technology and embrace it. He was nearly thirty seven thirty eight years old when he decided he was going to set aside everything he'd been doing professionally in book-selling, he as you say he tried to become a small time inventor for a period of time at thirty seven. He changes his career and decides to pick up a camera and become a photographer your returns to California in eighteen sixty six I believe and with the help of a friend whom he had met in New York's a Celik the man he met when he got there in eighteen fifty. Yes. That's right. Yes. With the help of a friend file Selleck he sets himself up as a photographer for higher and he's. He's not good with people. He's he's kind of recuse EFF, man. He's not socially at ease. And so he's not able to get customers in the most conventional way, that's stalker. I did as portrait subjects that was a very lucrative part of early photography and still today. But my was was rather bad as a portrait artist and he began to photograph the outdoors, and it just happened that Yosemite valley in central California had become a destination for small numbers of adventuresome travelers to to enjoy. The the rapturous beauty of this is twenty five mile long this seven mile long, excuse me, chasm in central California. And mortgage takes some of the most majestic and arresting photographs of. This valley and they've become big selling aren't objects. They they're they're they're awarded prizes. They he makes a lot of money from these photographs and he suddenly has his himself a prosperous career as landscape photographer. So at this point, he is known in San Francisco, and in central California as the man who you want to photograph your land and your property, which is something he he knows how to do quite well, and he meets this guy. Leland Stanford who by this time Leland Stanford has has quite a bit of property. He's one of the richest men in west of the Mississippi, you suppose, this is sometime in eighteen seventy two after he had some dealings with Crocker one of the partners in the central Pacific. Yes. It's about eighteen seventy one actually and. So Stanford who is possibly the richest man west of the Mississippi, the president of essential civic railroad hires Edward average to photograph is house. Just a normal kind of assignments for a photographer here. I have a beautiful piece of property photographs my house for me. Who is as I said rather uncomfortable? Somewhat eccentric man possibly had an injury from this stagecoach accident which affected his personality. He dresses shabbily strings on cuffs of his pants and beat up old hats, and and and dusty black jackets and Stanford who favors tuxedos even during workdays and top hats and shoes are shined to the brightness of mirrors and everything is is quite in his in its place in Stanford's world this odd couple begin to spend time together. And begin to socialize together. And begin to talk late into the night and become friends, and they become one of the strangest collaborating pairs that you can imagine in in the history of invention. And it's their friendship that leads to what I believe is the invention of motion pictures, which ensues of some years later when Stanford gives more bridge another photography assignments. To photograph is horses because he keeps the farm which is his race horses, especially trotters at a place that we now know as Palo Alto, the home of Leland Stanford University the tragedy, however to tuck it in here because my bridge live several lives inside and Edward notes. He has distanced himself from people by dressing shabbily and staying by himself. He marries a young woman a woman who must twenty years younger than he is flora he's fascinated obsessed with her he stares at her. He takes photographs of her outside. However, he doesn't return affection that she can recognize she's a young woman he sets up in a house, and he tries to give her all the money in the and the things that she wants. However, he doesn't give her what she finds adequate affection, and this leads to flora after the birth of their son falling in with another man whose invented himself Larkins. And this was a. Other profile of the nineteenth century inventing itself for me, although Larkin's will wind up a villain here. He very much could have been at the right place at the right time to and become one of the one of the gilded age is celebrated ones and not one of their rascals Edward. Yes. You're talking about a guy called Harry Larkins who was an Englishman with a polished education who decided to leave his prosperous family behind in London and come to the American west, which he does in about eighteen seventy or so, and he has a smart talking beautifully dressed man who seems to be adept at persuading people to give him their money. And so he arrives in in San Francisco, and and despite his polished outward appearance, he finds himself in jail for trying to con another fellow out of out of. Out of some of his his travel money and once he springs himself from jail. He invents this guy. Harry Larkins was rather handsome. And articulate gentlemen, invents himself as a theatre critic. He becomes a writer on the theater for the Cisco chronicle and he's bit of a man about town in San Francisco, and he meets Edward mortgages, young wife flora downs. And he's seduces flora more average, and they become lovers while Edward marriage is off on his photography assignments up and down the west coast and mortgage comes home and becomes quite suspicious of his wife, and one thing leads to another and he discovers that his wife has had this lover Larkin's for more than a year. And he decides in a fit of pique and also in some of the sort of notion of western Justice that Larkins has to pay with his life. So he goes at nights at midnight to a house where he knows Larkins is is spending the nights knocks on the door demands to see Larkin's Larkin's presents himself for the door average pulls out his Smith and Wesson, revolver, and shoots this man. Dead. And at this point. Is a well known photographer. He's well known as a friend of leaving Stanford and the Stanford. It seems comes to averages aid when the murder trial ensues. Stanford helps to get a lawyer for average it appears to be and after a long and and sensational trial which fill the American newspapers for a month and a half in eighteen seventy three four. Mortgage is acquitted of this murder. Which is peculiar because he admitted to it. And he's acquitted on the basis of something that was once called justifiable homicide at the time and the place in California in frontier, California, there was this notion that a man had a right to kill his sexual rival. And he could be acquitted. If he did that was the husband's rights to defend the marriage bed to use the language of the day and mortgage is quitted of his murder. And released. And then he goes back to Mr. Stanford and Stanford welcomes him back with open arms and says listen, we've got to finish this work on my horses. I've got these thoroughbred horses, and I really wanna know whether horses when they're galloping ever leave the ground, the inventor and the tycoon when we come back the invention of motion pictures, and we'll try to get Edison in this picture to a gilded age murder and the birth of moving pictures, the inventor and the tycoon by Edward ball.
