I mean, as you say, you know, you walked A long way. How you feel you tired? Is your body tired? Um, actually, I feel amazing. Believe it or not, I don't know how it was like a very spiritual journey for some reason. Even the last day I had walked 40 miles that morning, and then the group walked 42 miles in the Washington D. C that later on that evening, and my body was so fine And so is that like, literally, The last 20 miles, and there was a lady that came up. She came out. She said she was looking for me for four hours, and she was crying. And she had her kids, whether she like you're doing what nobody else could do. You know, Um, you're doing it for my kids.

Like I woke up this morning like like I hadn't walked for him for the last 24 days. But there were also some some ugly things that happened along the way. I understand that members of your group had many trials that some members of the group were arrested members you know, a member of the group was accused of shoplifting after she had bought like hundreds of dollars of supplies that you were shot at in Pennsylvania.

You know, and we laugh. We just laughed or whatever you know to me, but it was like You can kind of predict as soon as you cross the state line and take like 15 steps.

The police were black and golf, gas stations and Indiana so that we couldn't get gas at them. Telling gas stations and businesses to close could say We were there to burn him down. The women can use the bathroom. We had someone brought us a portable toilet. So Indiana was like 100 degrees for two days. We are these like 30 Miles stretches where there was only one gas station and we weren't allowed to use it. And we're walking like 12 hours a day at that point, so we had to deal with racism, and we had to deal with the heat. And then we had to deal with the police actually spreading the rumors that we were doing these things and plus they were also telling us we can't go down the street or industry and we were.

Republican Voters Reflect On The Republican National Convention
"The Republican National Convention wrapped up on the South Lawn of the White House last night. That's where President Trump gave the final speech of the week He talked about law and order about American greatness and bash Joe Biden. We wanted to hear from some conservative voters on how the message is from the RNC landed this week from President Trump's speech last night. I feel like this was the line when he said that we do not put our trust In politicians or government. As our Saviour. We put our faith in Almighty God. Listen, Dick button, and I would second that when I saw the young man speaking about how he was cancelled. So were you talking about Nick Sandman, the young man who had Had the experience on the National Mall. So he got featured and talked about the idea of cancel culture. And it's something that is very important to me because my Children are more conservative. When they go out to college, or even at work. They will be. I don't know they will be bullied. I feel that there is an issue of freedom of speech. This is Dick Button ing. I agree, Chauncey. I really appreciated his speaking and for a young man. He really did a great job of stating. How he throat there were so many black Republicans Black Latino Asian, It was sort of a multi racial vision of the party that isn't necessarily in line with the data of the voting patterns. Can you talk about what you thought about what you heard from those speakers? Well, I think it's something that needed to be pointed out. Yes and tohave the black people coming forward and making that statement I thought was good. It was absolutely necessary for the convention to have people of different backgrounds and different status in life because It's the media and it's the message and that's what's causing all the unrest that saying Either you're here or you're there, and that's unfair. It's been unfair to the president from day one. You said something that this is the cause of unrest. This divisiveness What's your response to the viewers who say the cause of the unrest is police misconduct? Listen, this country is a big country with a lot of police departments and They probably are and there is justice. That's nothing Serve properly to say that it's systemic to state. It's systemic. To me, that's cowardice. My daughter is a nurse. And there are good nurses and there are bad nurses. There are good doctors and there are bad, doc and there are good policemen, and unfortunately what back we spent, and I'm sure we've all had that. Paul. Let me let you jump in here. Clearly, there are instances of excessive use of police force. Police officers are, in fact human beings and some human beings. They're bad things, whether by mistake or by malice, the insistence on framing The use of police force in racial terms has ruined any chance of an honest conversation about it. Right now, the president is dealing with a number of crises. There's the pandemic, There's thie. Massive job loss. And there are these protests over police misconduct. The's are all things that have happened under his watch. It's a little different from being new to the political scene and saying Here's how I'm going to improve things. If voters on the fence and watching all this why should they not think that the buck stops with him publicly here? I'll jump right in on that the president actually tried to get out in front of the Corona virus. The steps that he tried to take initially were blocked and he was chastised for them by the opposition party. As well as the riots that have been going on. The president has offered help to the cities and states. Not only has he been rejected, he had been ridiculed. He's been told to get out of there State He's been Billa vied. It sounds like what you guys were saying is the message to voters is None of this is his fault, and he tried and he needs another four years to improve the situation. I would go so far as to say it's sabotage.

"My favorite all right now. It's the time of the episode where we share our favorite parts of DC in its national park sites. We haven't told each other answers. So it's all surprise Matt. What was your favorite part of Washington? DC and the National Park Systems. Fantastic question I would say. My favorite part was probably the national archives because seeing seeing the bill of rights and the Declaration of Independence is probably one of the most like Americana things I've maybe ever done. And also you know directly to my favorite movie national treasure so that that plays a big part in in that decision now but it was. We're only there for a few minutes really in the Rotunda like looking at these documents but you are so immersed in it in every way. It's like a dark space. It's it's chilly so it's basically got Tony Environment and I it was. It was really really cool skimming over a little bit. Couldn't read most of it but the the impact of these documents is profound and yeah. I absolutely loved that so. I'm glad that we're able to do that. What about you? What was your favorite part of a very tough question in the bud I would? I would have to say the Lincoln Memorial There's just so much history Torri to to contemplate there. There's so many lessons in life the being on the road and just seeing these different memorials in these sites That impact as like a culture as a single culture and within the multiple cultures of the United States and trying to figure it out. And I think that's the one thing that I see. Abraham Lincoln means to me is like E. He realized that we're all individuals. We have our individual cultures but we have an American American culture as well and bringing people together was his mission. Yeah Yeah it is his legacy and so that's really what it is to me a little bit There's more to like processing over there but I just really love everything. That Abraham Lincoln was about out and figuring it figure it out. Yeah and it's also cool because that legacy and his whole ethos is really living on today as you can see the Lincoln and we'll get seven million annual visitors. That's a ton it's like one of the most visited places in DC and swarming with people. We were there and people from all walks of life from all over the world presumably. Are they're mingling together. And absorbing this experience and that was amazing and I also love how inspite of how crowded it was while you're inside the extra memorial. Everyone is quiet and respectful. That and there are signs that say like you know please be respectful and inquire while you're in here etcetera and everyone is very well behaved you know. Yeah they are yeah and also the view view from up there is just the best like up his long series of steps in overlooking the reflecting Pool The Washington Monument. It's probably the best view in the Jose I think about. Yeah sorry. I'm like kind of stealing your favorite thing. Now that's coming into my own but I'm just listening having fun you know and and this this park the or Washington. DC The district of Columbia. However you want to look at it the three things to bring really isn't your normal? I mean honestly I would bring friends and family because you don't want to be like thirteen year. Old Math like younger and friendless. Yeah don't experience it like I did in middle school Because you you might not have the best memories but I would say oh awesome place to visit with groups with family especially really and then there's a lot to do here and it's hard to kind of summarize it because it's so spread out and so many different things freebies freebies except bring money for milk. Barney yeah because you need to get your clock days and your corn cookies yes you do and then you also need to go to old et grill. More have an iconic meal. We actually ate and drank very well in DC. So I'm glad that we haven't even scratched the survey and that's fine though. Maybe maybe they'll be a special bonus episode in the future maybe branching out into neighborhoods and checking out more culture her and other kinds of activities and DC. Because this is just the very beginning and let's see the third thing so we got money friends and family yeah slash appetite of some sort of a camera and it can be yourself on. It doesn't have to be like huge beautiful camera but like there are are places to take great photos too so but just bring some kind of Camera because there's so many memories that like you're just GonNa take pictures all day anyway and what you're going to look through your remember you went to that place and then you're gonNA start researching because that's what we do like. We take pictures like. Oh yeah forgot about this and then I just go back and and start research and try to understand and see what else is in there. Because that's just what I I love to do right right for sure. Also I think this is another little thing to bring. It's like or the thing more so I think to get while you're there is public transit cards like we talked about Makes it real easy to to get around town. Walk to like while you're in and around the National Mall Very walkable but the the train makes it super easy to branch out from that as well. Yeah those public transit cards. Yeah definitely definitely worth it. Yeah I gotta say it was much nicer spending time in DC now that. I'm not a socially awkward seventh grader. I learned a ton I had so much fun and I left feeling very inspired and very well fed. This is definitely an all American city filled with inspiration and history. Plus it is inspired us to to obsess over Netflix. Shows like house of cards. An Madam Secretary. Yeah obsesses an understatement. Best enjoy it of course while eating milk bar cookies.

Or wherever the rotates you on the iheartradio APP. Hi I'm Matt and I'm Brad this park land area and today we're talking about Washington. DC The National Mall and all the Memorial Park that we visited in the city monument so like we mentioned DC has a ton of national park sites many of which are well known in popular freelance along with others that are less visited in addition to the Capitol building and the National Mall itself which serves as the grand public connector to all of it the other national parks revisited. Were are at the Lincoln Memorial Martin Luther King Junior Memorial President's Park Ak the White House the Thomas Jefferson Memorial and Pennsylvania Avenue which is considered a national park. Stay stay in and of itself like you said there's a lot here and we also stopped at the Washington Monument But we weren't able to go into it or to the top of it because it was close for innovations it has since reopened. So it's a bummer. We missed it but you do not have to right. Yeah it was. We did go into like the little visitor center store the increase that for a little bit. But we'll just have to go back which I'm totally fine with because that means more milk bar cookies and more American history so signed me up the great the thing about how DC is laid out is that the National Mall makes it super easy to get from one site to the next. Yeah do you remember when you mix up the National Mall the mall of America okay. I don't really want to tear you. Were under the bus here. We're wandering from one side of milk bar cookies for you. You're like where's the rollercoaster. And I'm like what like your your horrible. Bring that up waller because my favorite thing and I have nothing to say except utter embarrassed modestly though I feel like in all fairness that probably is an easy can thing too confused because the names are super similar. They're basically like synonymous names. Even though like in actual out of the two places could not be more different they represent entirely different things. They really do And do you know any way things for embarrassed me. There are first stop after or eating lunch at the. US Capitol building was the National Archives Museum to see the Declaration of Independence and the bill of rights. Yes and I was so excited to go take so excited to talk about it because this is the part of the episode where I begin to talk pretty much nonstop about my favorite movie of all time national treasure as you remember all day took place in like most of the movie took place in DC. Nicholas cage epic epic adventure and I was thinking thinking about Warren. DC of course especially the National Archives. Yeah well let me make sense. Because like Nicholas Cage until the declaration of independence. Well he didn't try hi he succeeded. which would be probably more impressive in honorable? That wasn't like a heinous crime. A horrible thing to do but honestly after visiting the archives. I'm starting to think that movie was a wee bit fantastical and unrealistic. Are you really now just realizing that. Well as far as I'm concerned like National Park was as accurate as maybe a documentary like all these things were laid out their plans. Relate out and Nicholas cage would run through his itinerary of like the Mike. Okay okay I have no reason not to buy this but then again I'm also the type of person who thinks like Jurassic Park seems viable like if they were to do that with the mosquitoes. Today tell me that the meg is the same thing I thought. Yeah I mean that that movie about the giant shark at the bottom of the ocean and how they broke through this. What was that like a frozen frozen layer like a freezing layer and there was like mega don down there like I explained it in the movie and I'm like okay? I'm in like the seems breath. Maybe we should actually for this. Yeah you just love those documentaries. Yes documentaries with quotes around them. Yeah I think it's safe to say that. No one would be able to steal the declaration of independence not even Nicholas Cage This thing was on heavy lockdown and guarded by several staffers. And they don't even even let you take photos if it with your phone let alone anyone's deal with it. Yeah that's true. I've never seen anything this guarded and even though photos weren't allowed it was still really really cool. Oh spend a few minutes with it just trying to read it in the dark room. It's hard to see because the ink is so faded and it's all fancy calligraphy. Mary's are are not able to decipher. Yeah same thing with the bill of rights a lot of curse of Families are. Do you know how to write in cursive but They're hundreds of years old so it's the the the big fancy curse of big hand. It's something that we're just. We don't read like that anymore. it's a lost art. Both of these documents are in the Rotunda under section of the building which is kept mostly dark and Chile to help preserve them. Yeah in other neat thing here. Is the Hawk murals. These enormous oil on canvas works created by Barry Faulkner in nineteen thirty five and nineteen thirty. Six they're depicting a fictional seen the presentation of the Declaration of independence and constitution Russian. And it's extraordinary. It's huge mural just gorgeous and it's perfectly yeah absolutely stunning. After this week continued down the the National Mall to probably which is the most iconic memorial in the city. The Lincoln Memorial. Yeah it I would definitely say it's the most psychotic like after of course like the White House and just I mean I like it better. Yeah Yeah White House Lincoln Memorial those two can go get up. There's nothing that's really going to beat those two. No no no. No you remember that scene. A national treasure when Nicholas Cage is sitting on the steps of the memorial like talking again with this type of his side Hicks name was Riley. I don't remember like what that actor's name is in real life but it's like conic. Although the in the movie the The craziest part about that scene was when they were there at the memorial pretty much had it to themselves somehow like nobody around which doesn't make any sense to me. Maybe that's the point when you should have realized that the movie was not a documentary. I mean that was the most unrealistic part of that movie. One thing I will agree though. Is that the Lincoln Memorial is definitely a national treasure. Yeah it is a national treasure like we talked about in our Gettysburg episode with we are big fans of Abe Lincoln. He was the Bianchi of Gettysburg. And he's the beyond saved to absolutely The memorials such a special place but this giant statue inside of like this Greek doric temple overlooking the mall and speaking of Gettysburg that's peaches and inscribed along one of the interior walls Along with his like second inaugural address. Yeah so the memorial was officially dedicated in nineteen twenty two designed by architect Henry Bacon Daniel Chester French in carved by the picker really brothers. Jules Jules guerin painted the murals on the inside so good job team everybody pulled it together ever since its creation. It's been this endless source of inspiration. Not only for us and for the visitors today but for people like Martin Luther King Junior who gave his famous. I have a dream speech in front. In addition to being a national park site of its own right. The memorial memorial was listed on the National Register of historic places in nineteen sixty six. Yeah and when we said it was popular we were not kidding. The Lincoln Memorial alone it gets more than seven million annual visitors but despite these almost concert crowds it's still somehow like a very peaceful feeling place of reflection. It's nice and quiet inside died so you can drink it all in the work and subject that inspired it and speaking of Martin Luther King Junior That's another memorial we major visit Like most things on and around the National Mall nearby yes it's in West Potomac Park and the main attraction here. This memorial is the intricate Granite Statue of Martin Luther King Junior which was carved by Lee. Hsien who drew inspiration from memorial by the I have a dream speech. She she gave nearby. The statue is actually called the stone of hope which is part of a line from that speech when he said out out of the mountain of despair. A stone of hope. It's a really deep and it's definitely still resonates. Today is like civil rights are still huge issue in this country tree sadly true yes but the civil rights movement was such an important turning point for the country and we're all so much better off. Thanks to Martin Luther King. Junior's bravery and leadership the memorial royal is one of the newer editions in DC since it opened in two thousand eleven and it's overlooking the tidal basin. So it's got a gorgeous location and gorgeous scenery another author like amazing slash like crazy thing. Is that the memorial still. Her was the first African American memorial on the National Mall. Most of them Our presidents and this is the only the fourth memorial. That's not a president. Yeah and honestly if anyone deserves to be memorialized. It's Martin Luther King Junior. Another one of those presents sends who have been memorialized as Thomas Jefferson. who had his own famous memorial just southeast of the Martin Luther King Junior across the title basin when we visited it was has just the very early beginning of Cherry blossom season? So these bright pink florals. We're starting to bloom a little bit on the trees around the title Basin which made for very pretty walk from Memorial Memorial. got a little sneak about now. This is just another beautiful structure almost totally surrounded by the serenity of the title basin. It's a neoclassical building with at the bronze statue of Thomas Jefferson in the middle under the huge Dome Glove at it was designed by John Russell. Pope and built by John McShane finished in nineteen forty three in the statue was added in nineteen forty seven. It's right up there with the Lincoln Memorial in Washington Monument as one of the most visited sites town with more than two million visitors. This is another side. I remember visiting in Middle School actually probably by myself I mean like the rest of their somewhere there but I was like you know alone. We'll leave it this way. You were probably able focused more and appreciate the details better. Yeah you mean without the distractions of friendship. Sure so the other memorials memorials revisited. In and around the mall where more war focused The Vietnam Veterans Memorial and the world. War Two memorial naturally these were especially sombre destinations but so beautiful and inspiring nonetheless. The Vietnam Memorial is really close to the Lincoln Memorial. It's a two acre structure Designed to honor. US armed forces who fought and died or went missing in Vietnam War The one thing that really hits me the hardest is when and I see families going there with their paper and chalk or their their pencils and they're outlying the name of their loved one a lot of people do this and the home and is that like Keepsake for them but just knowing a lot of people who served especially during the Vietnam War war. It's you know.

"So cookies are literally the best that serum soft serve in Las Vegas is she does like a Sierra milk. BOOZY ENTHUSI- cocktail thing. Oh yeah sorry to jump over there but But we really got into them when we were in Las Vegas last year. Everyone into their location at the cosmopolitan Probably half dozen times for cookies in those boozy Latifi when a lot. Yeah the boozy lot has great too. Because it's like you have the cereal milk flavor which is like so nostalgic and childhood but then you can also get busy so it's like occurring like vodka. Oliver Childhood Memories. It's really really nice. Yeah and I yeah just talking about now like I miss them dearly. Those milk bar the specially wish we had them I do to immediately now so they have a few locations in DC though which is beautiful But I'm going to the one in the city centre location cents. It's like so central and right next to all the main historic sites and attractions where we wanting to see so now. It's what is like three blocks from the train. Stop I mean literally perfection of where it was located. Yeah it would have been silly not to go honestly like we we need to do is preordained. I think I had one of my beloved cereal. Milk Law as there's no booze check you know got that and then I probably had a corn cookie. which is my favorite cookie from bar and check? Chad is love having cookies for breakfast or cookies. In general. It's a great breakfast food museum. I think I tried to go to the National Portugal Ary Because we wanted to see the new President Obama and Michelle Obama Portraits But the gallery wasn't opened until later in the day so we just kept on walking and exploring which was kind of a bummer. Yeah that was a bit of a bummer. And you know we. We weren't able to see that one this time but it was the perfect day for walking and exploring it was probably like mid to late March at this point so it was still chilly. We lay coats on but it was sunny and comfortable for walking walking especially and things warmed up into the afternoon so at this point we decided to make our way to the US Capitol building since neither of us have ever been and my main memory of this building is seeing it blown up and independence. Day so I figured it was time to make new memories ones. That aren't so destructive. That's a good idea. wasn't on the way. Hey there didn't. We pass where Lincoln was assassinated theater. Not Skip the Ford's theatre Kinda. Yeah I know but yes we up. He did again like Gosh. We skipped a lot of a lot. There's ton we saw but we also skipped a lot. It's absolutely packed. All the way the right through it. Yeah but back with the US capital you know. That's right up there with the White House and the Washington Monument is one of the most iconic buildings in DC and it really was is the only one we were able to tour at right. Yeah because that's not the easiest like you. Didn't you try to book tour of the White House. Initially but it was like probably to Osman at and they didn't have availability or something. Yeah you need to email your state senator set it up for both of the can do this. One is a walk in as well well the capital of the Capitol building. But the White House you have to do like way Yeah I. I'm not surprised at all. That one's difficult to do and but like the state senator things seems seems so like an unnecessarily official. Yeah in official. Like isn't that kind of shouldn't they be doing other things like I'm sure they're busy but they're trying to educate people on who they're senators are because a lot of people still don't vote they still don't. They're kind of forcing contractor Senator and they don't realize like you're supposed to have this truck window to them so it's like education having I can respect that. Yeah so you did that you emailed or like Illinois senator absolutely But I'm really glad we got to get into the Capitol building and it all worked out because it was an epic experience In case you need to refresh her. It's a huge dome topped building at the eastern end of the National Mall Right. It's impossible to mess. It's a huge building looming over the whole park the entire city and it's a super important building. Obviously it's basically like if you think of DC circulatory system this would be the era of DC EH is home to the US Congress plus the seat of the legislative branch of government. And it's the center of the city's four geographic quadrants and numbered streets so it's really central in more ways than one here everyday so for some background here. The Capitol building was built way back in eighteen hundreds and it was expanded in later for years with that kind of Dome and extra chambers but important fact is made mostly by Savory Yeah we learned not in the tour. We definitely did. The the architecture style is neoclassical. which makes sense because it totally looks like something from eighteen Europe? It's very distinct among any building in general especially since it's like all pristine white so it's almost like glowing from the end of the National Mall. Here it's magnificent wedding Alexander Hamilton who helped establish D.C The nation's capital It's to create more of a neutral location so that no single state would have more influence or power over the federal government. Yeah that's by. DC is district of cleansing. How we how we got here and abroad I star- helped solidify our country's capital pop quiz quiz? Okay is Washington. DC estate know exactly. I know that sounds silly. But a lot of people still don't know that Washington. DC EASY is not a state or with interstate. They think it's owned by state. But it is its own district right like I. I could see people thinking. It's part of Virginia Maryland. Right it's like a district of it or not. Yeah so this part I love and I probably knew this at some point. But my memory's foggy but but Philadelphia was actually our temporary capital while the well. DC was being planned and built along the Potomac River so it's been quite a saga for the city and our country general. Yeah I mean the really cool part about building this new city from scratch was how city planners were able to lay it out with the specific vision in mind signed. The president's Helms was intentionally like connected west to the Potomac by a public space. That would come to be known as the national. Oh Yeah Yeah. And eventually the public space would grow and expand to including connect the Capitol Building The Washington Monument the Lincoln memorial the Smithsonian museums and a slew slew of other important sites National Park and otherwise also the Capitol building was initially called Congress House but Thomas Jefferson wanted to change the name inspired by the Latin origins of the word and its connection to Capitoline Hill in Rome. Yeah right so the tour we did here was excellent. It was Pretty Sizable Group. I would say and we were all led around the interior of the building into numerous chambers learning about the construction of the building how it was partly burned damage during the war of eighteen twelve. And how the building was expanded in the mid eighteen hundreds to accommodate the House of Representatives the Senate since the country was growing adding more states. They were running out of room for all the new legislators so it was literally a full House. This is also when the new dome was added like a Cherry on the top of a Sunday. uh-huh yeah and I'm still starving firm bar chat so these references are kind. Have torturous for me to handle but I do like it. Yeah so the Dome is the Cherry then the statue statue of freedom on the top of the Dome would be chocolate drizzle or the whip cream or the sprinkles or Jimmy Chunga. Jimmy's carrying. Yeah yes all of it. It's The statue was actually in ornate bronze statue of a woman with a military helmet holding a sword and shield. So she's was basically like a bad ass of liberty now after years and years of restorations and add on's the Capitol building was named a national historic landmark by the National Park Service in nineteen sixty and rightfully so. Yeah rightfully so so. My favorite thing about our tour here was seeing all the different states that were so well represented. I felt such a sense of unity and especially important during a time when our country really needs that feeling that unity the tour started in small round room with statues important pioneering during figures from the original thirteen colonies including my home state of New Hampshire. Nice to see that yes. This area was called the crypt really It was filled with columns and and has statues of people like Samuel Adams Massachusetts Charles Carroll from Maryland and Roger Sherman from Connecticut. Yes New Hampshire was wrapped by John. Stark doc actually each state has its own statue somewhere in the buildings some of them have more than one. So it's not just the crap and it's not just the thirteen colonies statues can can be found in the visitor. Center at the National Statuary Hall connecting corridors and the Hall of Columns Statues. Yeah I think this statuary hall is my favorite. It's a huge room with tall ceiling filled with these beautiful statues from across the country and the tour guide was really on it with information. He would ask people in the crowd to say where they're from and he would would immediately point to the statue in the room and talk about that person and their role in history Yeah the the guy was on it. Really cool thing about like statuary hall is is that that is where like Congress collected for a long time until they outgrew it but it wasn't like the modern day like basically the game. It was a full all houses path but I think every state can have up to two statues And they're donated by your state and youthful. Yeah Oh gosh. Good Teamwork's dates who they're important characters are too so it's you're such a really really great. Yeah unpack there if you want honor some someone new or you know swap things out or someone being honored turns out to be awful if they haven't h well in history then sought that out in another note on our way into this hall. We also pass by Nancy Pelosi's office which was a total surprise to me. I did in her office was here So I wasn't expecting to see yeah. We didn't see her but we saw our office and it reminded me of a dream. I recently had with Nancy and day. Tell you about the stream things. Oh so I dreamed that she invited added me to our office for some sort of meeting. I guess I just envisioned the sweater office would look like it Kinda elementary school principal's office or something I don't now if that's how it actually is. But she invited me into her office for a meeting and then we didn't really talk about business but she did Parmi some red wine and like a paper Cup and I was like Nancy. She's call and then I don't know what we talked about if anything but the meeting is pretty much over like right away. She did hug me goodbye. Though so I woke up feeling great and that is amazing. I love it. No I remember some weird dreams but that's one that doesn't seem to offer. Maybe what would happen. I just think that Nancy maybe she would do that. Were Real classy than a paper Cup. Like I think she'd give you. That's the unbelievable part. That's that's really the only unbelievable part of that dream. And it's like Paper Cup She probably has like steinmeyer absolutely. And when we come back from this short break we'll get back to reality with more from our trip. The Washington National.

"Story. A little reported somebody tried to blow up the mall in DC. I did not get much play ABC had the story though. And New York man built a two hundred pound bomb, which he was going to detonate on the National Mall in Washington DC on election day. His name Paul Rosenfeld, fifty six authorities got a tip from an identified individual in Pennsylvania. That Rosenfeld was talking about this plan. He was trying to detonate and kill himself in the process. So this could be a very interesting case of see something say something. Which is extremely. Important.
