Some Conferences Are Determined: There Will Be College Football This Fall
"There There will will be be college college football football this this fall. fall. Maybe Maybe that that is is the the message message this this week week from from some some top top football football schools schools and and conferences. conferences. It It comes comes after after two two powerhouse powerhouse conferences. conferences. The Big 10 in the Pac 12 announced they were canceling their full seasons because of the Corona virus. NPR's Greg Allen reports how colleges that are planning to play hope to protect the health of their athletes. Even many hard core college football fans are skeptical how Khun well over 100 people on a typical team training play without spreading the Corona virus, possibly shutting down the season this week, three of the top conferences, the SEC, the SEC and the Big 12 said their plans this fall to play and do so safely. John Thrasher is president of Florida State University, which is part of the Atlantic Coast Conference. And what we frankly want to send is a message to some of the other schools that may be teetering on whether or not to play football. We think it's a bit in the best interest of our student athletes. For us to play football. We could do it safely and we can do it productively for them for fans, athletes and the multi $1,000,000,000 sports entertainment complex built around college football things looked bleak Tuesday. Two major conferences, The Big 10 in the Pac 12 canceled their fall schedules because of the uncertainty and health risk surrounding the Corona virus. The announcement by the remaining three of the power five conferences that they would have a fall season came after athletes began a hashtag. We want to play movement on social media. At Florida State Wide receiver Keyshawn Helton says he believes training and playing with regular testing and medical protocols in place. Maybe safer than not playing. You talk about 18 or 22 year old Just quarantine at the house. That's unrealistic. There's really there's so many other things that you know God, I'm going to go do which is not safe. So being here with my team, and all of us together is the safest forth. The college conferences are pushing back the start of their seasons to give them extra time to get ready and perhaps learn from the experiences of other sports. Putting players inside a bubble like the N BA has done in Orlando isn't feasible for student athletes who live on campus and have to attend classes. University of Miami coach Manny Diaz believes college football can learn from the English soccer leagues, which resumed play in June. Without fans with so much at stake. He believes his athletes will be careful. They're aware that they've got to keep their bubble small. They understand the value of what a mask doesn't and who that protection If you're around people who don't have mass on, you've got to find another place to be, but with all that there's risk and going ahead with the college football season. One concern that was reportedly a factor in the decision of some conferences to postpone play is new information about a heart condition. My card is that has been linked to the Corona virus. It's an inflammation of the heart that can lead to long term problems. Announcing its decision to play the Big 12 conference, said any players who test positive for the Corona virus would receive an E K g echocardiogram, cardiac Emery and further heart tests before returning to play. Gabe Feldman, the director of the Sports Law program at Tulane University in New Orleans, says If the schools are transparent and take the right precautions he thinks they can play. Every school in the athletic department has to be very clear with all of their athletes. About what the risks are and what the unknowns are. And then the athletes have to have a choice. It's one thing to play. But can there be fans in the stadium? University of Florida athletic director Scott Strickland says he hopes so We want to be on a have fans, and we hope we're in a position to do that. But you see, this is the NFL season now starts earlier than ours, and A lot of NFL teams and still have a made determinations. Yet that could be the riskiest. Part of all some schools were opposing plans that would limit attendance to 25% of a stadium's capacity, which would still bring together a huge crowd of 20,000 or more cheering, screaming fans.

Digging for the truth
"The Welcome to kiss Miss Mystery signed your host. Kit crump night been receiving a usual amount of people wondering how I tracked down the facts refined the truth when I'm working on a story. So I'm going to run down the process I'd take when investigating and urban legend and try to give a couple of examples, I i. look for anyone that actually experienced the event if that individual doesn't want to talk to me, which is usually the case. Then, I attempt to track down a witness to the event. Often when there are someone that actually experienced a paranormal event, let's say they are often embarrassed or reluctant to speak to anyone for fear, they're going to be criticized or accused of making up the entire event in some cases that involve things political or the government I can utilize the freedom of information. Act But they usually take forty five days or more to respond if the event. Is something that was reoccurring. Then I can tap into police be I reports. However, they are often. So editor redacted with black lines disliked trying to figure out a code to best understand the process will recite a couple of examples I of flying saucer that crashed at Roswell keep in mind that I'm going to leave out a lot of detail and I'm only going to explain off the flying saucer itself no alien bodies involved in this first. Trace the image of a saucer back to nineteen forty seven in horten brothers who created both a saucer and flying wing both brothers were brought back to the United States with two hundred and fifty other scientists at the end of the war in something that was called project paper clip. You may have heard of this where in the United States could the Horton's and other scientists work well, area fifty one of course at what became area fifty one. I continue this option that they would continue work on the flying wing or flying saucer I. Now Research Project Rainbow is a program using some of Tesla's science in an effort to move a battleship from point a to point b you might know this as a Philadelphia experiment. The idea was not to make anything invisible simply to move it from one place to. Another and the military failure they had made a small battleship both vanish and move from one point to another. Now, they bring that science to the Horton saucer and it becomes up flying saucer. The problem is that they can't control the Horton's flying saucer any better than the L. Ridge which was the battleship they tried it out on initially with line saucer vanishes and. then. Reappears eight hundred miles away word crashes at Roswell New Mexico this. You'd give you a very rough idea of the thinking connecting process. Keep in mind that if I have a strange unexplained event, I don't want to go to the authorities or police wrath be I with whatever because they are not equipped for accurate reports on things that go bump in the. Night that leads me to my second example a while back I got a book did explained away dozens and dozens of urban legends is a hundred percent boss. But when I opened the book to the first one, the author said, it could possibly be happening yet. I know for a fact, kidney harvesting does happen and is going on in the United States right now. The book explained away the notion that people are having their kidneys harvest it well, here's what I know. Twenty years ago I was in a restaurant with my editor. The booking question was my book body parts a story I had written about the sale of block market body parts as I was explaining the research a waitress came over and told us how some of her friends had gone to New Orleans and one of them strayed from the group in hoax. So picking up a woman for the night, they had all been. Showing an apartment and she said he would join them in the morning. If he simply ended up closing down a few bars long story short when he didn't show up, they manage to track him down to a flop house where they found him in a bathtub filled with ice less one kidney. So they get into a local hospital at an after examination. The doctor tells them that the surgery necessary to remove that kidney without killing the patient had been carried out in a surgical unit with a team of surgeons trained to. Remove a kidney. This waitress didn't know either my editor or myself. She said her friend who lost a kidney lives in Ashland Oregon but I never tried to contact him but you could see from this second example, how many urban legends are often just dismissed out of hand. The author of that book I was mentioning dismissed the kidney harvesting only consulted police in several doctors. Of course, neither of his sources would have anything to do with kidney harvesting for a lot of different reasons not to mention that harvesting any Oregon is. A federal offense
Orlando Magic's Jonathan Isaac explains why he didn't take knee or wear Black Lives Matter shirt Friday
"We had an incredible opening weekend of games name a star level player that player delivered at least once if not twice over the first three or four nights of the NBA's restart here in Orlando, we had crazy comeback wins. By the Houston Rockets, we had a dominant performance by. Jaanus over some little pesky pip squeak team from New England I forget who they might be. We got Marcus smart got fined for trying to work the officials. We've got storylines upon story lines. The clippers bounce back from their loss to the Lakers. Looking excellent and just throttling the New Orleans Pelicans. There's so many different directions that we can go Michael that I decided. Here's what we're GONNA do opening weekend heaters we're GONNA have just open ended questions are we're going to ping pong back and forth you give me your answers I'm going to give you my answers to these questions and try to cover as much ground as possible before we get there though I do want to double back quickly on the national anthem demonstrations that we touched on last episode, we got so many thoughtful emails from various members of the open floor globe on this subject, but I think there was a major development after we spoke on Friday. and. That involve Jonathan Isaac Meyers. Leonard Gregg Popovich Becky Hammon and one of the NBA referees all deciding to not kneel to not really participate in what had been in unified demonstration on Thursday. All of those people who chose to stand were obviously doing it on principle and they were doing it knowing there was going to be a lot of attention their direction. Now, if you look at Popovich amend the referee essentially, they were trying to just say, Hey, I support the the Social Justice Movement it's it's a private or personal decision for the referee said look I it's important to me to stand Meyers Leonard made a similar comment. Essentially. Saying that his brothers military service in the in the military service of close people in his life led him to WanNa stand to salute the flag. But within Isaac was a slightly different case and he actually used this entire demonstration opportunity to almost have a one man demonstration of his own. In his belief, the idea of the black lives matters movement quote unquote doesn't go hand in hand with supporting black lives. He also said that you know we shouldn't be necessarily judging things solely based on skin color that we should be trying to live a life basically you know in God's mold and try to live up to his standard, and that Jesus Christ was his personal savior and and that he wanted everyone to focus on that. Aspect of of living rather than the particular issue that was being brought forward with the black lives matter movement by the players he didn't really get any major pushback. Within the NBA Community people respected his right to make a stand. He actually not only did he stand during the national anthem? He didn't wear a black lives matter t shirt which many people notice because he was essentially the only player not to do that his whole personal story Michael took a crazy twist over the weekend and sad twist when he wound up tearing his ACL injury that's going to end his time here in Orlando obviously but also could cost him all of next season. So now talk about a whirlwind seventy, two hours for player who generated millions of us with his comments about the protests. I'm curious. Let's start with Jonathan Isaac. What did you make of his decision? After we've seen things settle in the last couple of days You know maybe it doesn't seem quite as Eye Opening as it did at that moment, but I'll admit I was I was surprised to see given the buy in from everybody on opening night. Right, I mean I just WanNa Start and say that it it really really is a bummer to see anyone get injured but particularly is ICK who was already on restriction he was already playing with a humongous brace on his leg from a previous injury that cost him a majority of this regular season before it was suspended. So I just I feel for him greatly. I I think generally speaking. The coverage of who stands in who sits I mean we talked about this heading in anticipated it I. Think I think the coverage is generally besides the point and it doesn't really get the point I feel like people are using. This as an opportunity to shame those who are standing in a little bit I mean Meyers Leonard. said, he couldn't sleep before he made the decision to stand and that's just like not. The whole focus or the point here right like. You can obviously Support Black lives and also stand for the national anthem. It is a symbolic gesture that is what it is in the case of Isaac. I really had a difficult time understanding even what his message was until you interpreted it the way that you did I mean I watched the clip of Him Multiple Times survey there I'm GonNa just GonNa read what he said I and then we can use that as a jumping off point because I don't WanNa torture what he said earlier and I might have done that. So sorry for that. He says quote absolutely I believe that black lives matter kneeling while wearing a black lives matter t shirt doesn't go hand in hand with supporting black lives. I. Don't think kneeling or putting on a T. shirt for me personally is the answer i. Feel like for me, black lives are supported through the Gospel. All lives are supported through the Gospel. We all have things that we do wrong. Sometimes, it gets into a place of pointing fingers. We all fall short of God's glory whoever will humble themselves and seek God and repent of their sins. We can see our mistakes and people's mistakes and evil in a different light. Racism isn't the only thing that flags our society, our nation and our world, and he basically said he wanted this conversation to get out of the realm of skin color because the answer to all of our problems in everything that goes on in our world is Jesus. So. when I watched the clip. I'll I'll be honest. I was a little confused where he was going to after typing it all out trying to marinate on what he was saying I think he essentially wanted to have a demonstration on behalf of his religious beliefs and that this was an opportunity for him to say look you know focusing only on one particular group I. Guess in his view, the black lives matter group and you know everybody wearing a t-shirt doesn't necessarily achieve the wider goal which would be presumably healthy living. You know honest living you know Living which to him as a higher priority I think that's where he was going with his statements.

Meet Stagecoach Mary
"A No! That's what I'm saying like. The Postman only rang once. What. What Oh, oh, Hey, we're on! Hello, everybody! My name is Mick Sullivan and welcome to the past and the curious. This is episode number forty six, and we've done an episode about male done episode about trains, and we're kind of talking about both of those things again, but it's two completely new stories. One of the stories you're going to hear is about owning the dog. And I need to think friend of the show Michael. Fleming for his great reading on that one. The other store you're going to hear is about a woman who was generally known s stagecoach Mary, or at least that's how the history books remember her, but her real name was Mary Field and she was a very interesting person. Helping us with that episode. Doing a bit of dialogue is my friend Molly Victor from well. She's the creator of stoop kids, stories, which is an awesome podcast. Part of kids listen highly recommend. Check it out. Be sure to stick around for some songs at the end and patriotic shoutouts and a little bit of fun hiding out there promise. Let's get started. Robbers didn't scare fields. Wolves didn't scare her either. She had held her own against many even deadly cold weather was of little concern to her. Actually for that she had developed a little trick to stay warm and not freeze during these particularly perilous nights to keep her blood pumping, and your temperature up Mary would pace around her wagon all night long to keep from falling asleep. She figured if she did fall asleep in the cold, she might not wake up. A night without any sleep was definitely better than a morning. That never comes as you can see. Mary took her job seriously she had made an oath to the United States Postal Service and had become the very first black woman to have a postal contract and a carrying route with her wagon and team of horses she was responsible for hauling mail and freight through remote areas of Montana, meeting the train and cascade and navigating to Saint Peter's mission. This is how she earned her nickname stagecoach. Mary the fact is she didn't take that horsedrawn wagon to get mail and freight until she was well into adulthood. For most of her life, she wasn't stagecoach Mary at all, but instead Mary, fields. She had been born on a plantation in Tennessee around eighteen, thirty two was never sure about when her birthday was. Like the rest of her family Mary had been enslaved. Forced hard labor in the field was the fate of many enslaved men and women at this plantation. And Mary grew up to be a powerful young woman who worked beside the powerful men. She was tall over six feet by most accounts, and she had a broad, incredibly strong. Now, eighteen sixty five brought an enforceable end to enslavement in the United States, and while many emancipated men and women stayed near their families and friends. Mary immediately left Tennessee in search of work. She I found it on the river during Poker Games and bull sessions later in her life. She liked to tell the story of her job on a riverboat. The Robert E was a steamboat named after the confederate general on which Mary worked in eighteen seventy, there was a famous steamboat race down the Mississippi River from Saint Louis to New Orleans between her boat and another steamer called the NACHOS. Nearly, everything moved at a slower pace in the eighteen hundreds. So it might be hard for us to understand the excitement of a race travelling at an average of fourteen miles an hour and stretched out over several days. Wasn't a slow as molasses, but it wasn't far off. Nonetheless, Americans paid attention. The plotting pace of the race lent itself to the. Of the day, as the steamboats paddled in pushed their way down the river, small towns with Telegraph, the time, each vote passed by two newspapers, print and several daily editions. As exciting as it might have been to track the progress in the morning and evening editions of the newspaper. It was certainly more exciting to be at Mary Shoes, which were on deck or at sometimes below deck by the boiler of the League. She were called the crew feeding the boilers with anything. It would burn to keep the steam earning the paddle wheel. They ran out of wood for the fires. They'd stoke it with other things broken up furniture old clothes, even somebody's desk. What ever it took to win the race? She said to that end. They actually through a whole side of Bacon in the fire. That greasy smoke may have been the key. The League won the three day race by six hours not long after this through the connection of a passenger. Mary went north for a different, even slower paced work. She arrived in Toledo Ohio for the job. At the Ursuline Convent of the sacred heart she served as groundskeeper Gardner, and handled any other jobs for the community of nuns who lived there. In exchange, the nuns gave her a room board and a paycheck Mary definitely stuck out amongst the backdrop of Solomon religious ladies, sharing space nothing about the holy environment could stop Mary from yelling at them or anyone else. Who messed up her meticulously kept landscaping.

"Flooded with music cafes dance halls and even living rooms across the city were packed with people jazz and laughter from doorways and open windows the strong thrum of base and the Twang of Banjos. Mixed with buzzing cicadas in the night air but well venues everywhere. We're at capacity. The streets were empty. No one dared walked New Orleans cobblestone lanes alone instead they stayed inside seeking shelter among the crowds and the music there. They danced not out of joy but to ward off an evil spirit that stock the streets. They called him the tax man but he described himself as a fell demon from hottest hell and he'd written to the papers just days before with a proposition on Tuesday as he passed over the city. Any home with a jazz band in full swing would be spared his bloody axe. The city heated his request that night. The people of New Orleans danced for their lives. They spent our swinging and jiving to a band that never stopped. They danced until their feet ached and then they dance. Some more swing from exhaustion until the early morning hours hoping the jazz loving demon would be satisfied. When dawn broke they found Orleans had been spared. Not a single life was taken that night but only because it seemed there. Angel of deaf had spilled blood in a new city. Hi I'm Greg Paulson.

"Spread going on at that time. That has some impact on what we're seeing now on. Top of that and really the more difficult is that you're gonNA fine like in every catastrophic event that the poor going to get hurt substantially more than those who don't have resources. I haven't seen the demographic numbers on. Who's coming to the onus? And who's not but as a general rule when any kind of massive you've been hits. It has an an outsized impact on those folks don't have access to food shelter healthcare etc etc. My guess is going to play that way. Unfortunately we have a large number of poor people. In the south of the United States of America I would expect to see the numbers worth worse in the poor areas of the country rather than the wealthy areas. Although this epidemic does not discriminate in terms of who touches we'll see about what the particular outcomes on the mentality rate. But we're all in this together and we're in the soup and the only way we're GONNA get out is together. I'm sure you must know people impacted by already. I feel like we all are in a position where we know. Let me say this. I don't know about anybody else on this call but I know a number of people who have succumbed to this illness already and we not only have had loss of life with people that we personally no but there are a number of different People that we know that are unemployed now. Their businesses are likely not to come back. The whole nature of the country is going to be challenged by. You know how how badly hurt in the short term. We are but as importantly it's going to say a lot about the character of our country. You see it magnifying right now. Those things that are really rough and tough about us are rougher and tougher and worse those things that glorious like people helping each other that never knew each other run into the fire. The kinds of sacrifices people are making that. Give you hope terrific. You know people's personalities being magnified the president's clearly I'm as well as all other elected officials so you know this is going to be a life. Changing Experience Katrina hit. The only thing people talked about a New Orleans was where were you before Katrina? And where will you after Katrina? Well that's going to be the true with the country on the corona bars for the foreseeable future and I don't know that we can really see too far ahead. What's in front of US right now? Is that the thing that most American people can do to help. Each other is to listen to you governors and you mayors and stay away from each other. That's how you can show your greatest love for each other and then let's lift each other up like we always do after this catastrophic craft event. But you be clear. This is going to be with a lot of pain. It's going to require a tremendous amount of sacrifice. It's GonNa hurt more than we think. It's going to take longer than we're being told. And when not nearly as prepared on the ground as the national voices claim that we are all that stuff that they're talking about in the White House just because you issue an order from that podium doesn't mean that it's on the ground and there is a huge distance between the lip and the cop as President Clinton used to say on those issues and the healthcare providers on the ground doctors and emergency rooms. I am talking to. They're saying they don't have enough stuff. They don't have enough equipment. They don't have enough beds. They don't have enough ventilators and what that means is without being too harsh about it is that they cannot treat people well and more people will succumb to the illness that needed to because of that.

"Everyone I'm David the CNN political director. This is the daily. Dc president trump took to the White House podium yesterday to echo his health experts in warning of a potentially staggering death toll. You're talking about deaths. Even the low end you were shocked when one one hundred and twenty thousand two hundred thousand people over potentially a very short period of time. I want every American to be prepared for the hard days that lie ahead. We're going to go through a very tough two weeks. Those hard days are already here of course for many Americans living in these so-called hotspots across the country including the people of New Orleans which has close to two thousand cases in over a hundred deaths and could run outta ventilators by the end of this week. According to the governor joining me now to take us inside on how a city responds to an escalating crisis. Like the one. We're facing former New Orleans mayor and current CNN political contributor Mitchell Andrew Maryland. Thank you so much for being here. Thank you David. Vava me so I I WANNA get your reaction to what you're observing happening in the city. You love so dearly in that you lead When you see it on the maps and you see the curve there and you see what's happening as as one of the real hot spots in this grown virus epidemic. Well a number of conflicting thoughts. Go through your mind right away. First of all as someone who has lieutenant governor and mayor went through maybe fifteen to twenty massive emergencies from Katrina to Rita I- Gustaf national recession. Bp OIL SPILL. A number of different hurricanes mass shootings threatened attacks. One of the things that you do right away as soon as you get elected is think about how you organize yourself to be able to respond to things that you know are coming and then things that you cannot see so the first priority is to hire really competent people who not only can run the day to day operations of government but also have a mission of Security Homeland Security Public Safety Security Health Security people who can look up about what might be coming your way as opposed to looking down in front of you every day and mayors across America are shoulder the responsibility of making sure that those things are in place. Because as you're witnessing right now in this moment they are the front lines of every major epidemic or catastrophic event whether it's a pandemic whether it's a natural.

"In the Early Twentieth Century New Orleans was haunted by violent fiend called the cleaver for months this faceless criminal broke into the homes of Italian grocers and brutally attacked them while they slept but in one thousand. Nine hundred eleven. The Phantom cleaver committed his first actual kill the murder of twenty six year old. Joseph toffee sparked a highly publicized investigation to find the man responsible but months past and the trail went cold the cleaver had seemingly disappeared into thin air but seven years later in the spring of nineteen eighteen. He came back with a vengeance on. May Twenty Second Andrew. Mogia was drinking earlier that day. The twenty eight year old had received his draft card. He just been conscripted overseas to fight in World War. One scared out of his wits. The young man went to the local bar to forget his troubles in a pint around three. Am The next morning. Andrew stumbled home to the corner of Magnolia and upper line streets where he lived with his older brother. Joseph and his wife Catherine once inside. He fell into the bed and passed out around four thirty. A M still groggy from booze. Andrew woke up to an odd sound. It came from the other side of the shared wall that divided his room from Joseph and Catherine's bedroom listening closely. He realized what it was groaning. Even coming out of drunken stupor. Andrew knew something was deeply wrong but he couldn't bring himself to open his brother's bedroom door instead. He sprinted down the street to his older brother. Jacobs home and begged him to back to the house when they approached the back door. The two brothers stopped dead in their tracks. The door had been left ajar and one of its wooden panels had been removed someone had broken in hearts pouty. The brothers entered anyway and walk down the hall to Joseph and Catherine's Bedroom Jacob knocked softly but there was no answer. The two brothers steeled themselves and open the door inside the room. A heavy sent lingered damp and metallic and as soon as there is adjusted to the dark. The brothers saw a horrific tableau their sister in law Catherine laid on the floor in a pool of blood her throat slit so severely. She'd been nearly decapitated but Joseph miraculously was still alive. Andrew Jacob rush to the blood-soaked bed where their brother gasped for breath clinging to life. The brothers rang the police station and called for an ambulance. But by the time they derived Joseph Maggio had lost his struggle with death over the next few days. Detectives scoured the property for evidence in the bathtub. They found a murder weapon. A bloody axe that had belonged to Joseph Maggio. They also discovered a second weapon. A stainless steel straight razor found in the neighbors rose trellis at this. Detectives immediately turned their attention to the two module. Brothers Andrew Maggio was a barber by trade and the discovery of straight razor was especially incriminating and the fact that both men had waited so long before checking on Joseph and Katherine was deeply suspicious detectives so both. Maggio brothers were taken in for questioning and though they released Jacob fairly quickly they kept Andrew despite the many telltale signs. None of the detectives connected the macchia case to the brutal cleaver attacks seven years earlier this was due in large part to a change in the force just a few years prior New Orleans Chief of Detectives Jim Reynolds had been killed and John. Dantonio the Italian specialist had since retired their replacements. The no nonsense chief. Frank T MOONEY and Italian specialists. Arthur Morello had no professional knowledge of those cases but soon a mysterious discovery would make the connection for them shells to block away from the crime scene. Detectives FOUND A CRYPTIC MESSAGE. Chalked onto the sidewalk in a childish scrawl. It read Mrs Module is going to sit up tonight just like Mrs Tony. Investigators were baffled. They couldn't interpret what it possibly meant. Was it a message from the killer themselves? Or maybe a prank done in poor taste by some neighborhood delinquents but when local papers got a hold of the clue they revealed the answer. The name Mrs Tony was referring to the wife of Tony Sambre. That Italian Grocer who seven years before papers claimed had been one of the victims of the infamous cleaver after this realization New Orleans. Newspapers were rampant with speculation. Was it possible that the cleaver was back stalking the city streets after seven years of dormancy or was this killer merely an imitator a copycat according to criminologist race. Arete copycats are most often influenced by the media whether through journalism or entertainment by disseminating details of various crimes the media unwittingly inspires imitators however seret clarifies that exposure to these details does not cause a crime to occur but rather shapes its nature essentially the media does not serve as a motivation are catalyst but it does influence a pre existing criminals style in the case of the cleaver. It's possible that the Maggio's killer was actually a lesser known criminal inspired by his methods at the time the attacks had garnered a fair amount of coverage from local newspapers however still begs the question of why the imitator would have waited seven years to strike after all had had been nearly a decade since the cleaver made headlines so why now it's less likely that the Maggio's murders were the work of a copycat and they were of the cleaver himself as we now know. Serial killers will commonly act in cycles. These typically include an active period of murder as well as dormant phase in which they stop killing a stretch of time and some killers have longer dormancy periods than others but historian Miriam See Davis gives another possible explanation. That for the last seven years. The cleaver had been imprisoned most likely due to a less serious felony like robbery. And as the papers across the city speculated nearly a decade of pent up bloodlust had led the very same cleaver to the Maggio's doorstep but despite the rampant reporting connecting Maggio's murder to the clear of the Nineteen tends detectives on the case largely ignored this coverage for exactly what it was conjecture in their minds. The most plausible suspect was not some phantom killer but the man right in front of them twenty eight year. Old Andrew Macho police kept Andrew in custody as a material witness for the crime but at the time law enforcement was less likely to question their suspects than they were to torture them for days. Andrew was subjected to brutal interrogation in a bear sweltering room at police headquarters and though he begged they refuse to let him attend his brother and sister in law's funeral instead. He endured hours of detective screaming in his face accusing him of butchering his own family. They threw his brother's blood-soaked clothes at him and demanded that he confess but each day Andrew maintained his innocence and finally chief Mooney arranged for his release. Their interrogation yielded nothing. Andrew Mogia. Wasn't there man just like before the trail went cold then. Almost exactly a month. After Joseph and Katherine Maggio's murder on June twenty-sixth one thousand nine hundred nineteen another immigrant. Grocer was attacked with an axe but this time they were Polish early that morning during an already humid New Orleans. Summer delivery man. John czanka pulled his wagon up to Louis. Bessemer grocery store it was a routine stop and Bessemer. Polish immigrants was a loyal customer but that day the store was inexplicably closed confused. Czanka made his way around the store knocking at various doors and calling to anyone inside and finally sixty year old Louis Bessemer appeared. Bessemer looked awful exhausted and Pale but more alarmingly he was bleeding from a still fresh wound on his head but bessemer brushed off the injury telling Czanka that it was nothing just an accident. When CZANKA asked Bessemer Harriet his mistress was hurt. Bessemer was bizarrely nonchalant. He told Czanka he didn't know inside. Czanka phone twenty nine year old. Harriet low barely conscious collapsed on a bed soaked in Crimson. Her skull had been cracked open and dark. Blood matted her long dark hair as Sonko kneeled next to her. She could only whisper. Police were immediately to the scene where they noticed telltale signs that link the crime to the Maggio case the attack had occurred early in the morning. Nothing had been taken from the home and the murder weapon and old. Rusted acts was left at the scene. The axes dull blade had most likely saved their lives. However a series of other bizarre details gave chief Mooney doubts that this was actually a different attacker than the Maggio's killer. There was forced entry. Neighbors reported hearing no screaming or signs of a struggle and Harriet centuries were much more severe than Bessemer Bessemer was left with nothing but a long gash above his eye dealt from a single blow. Harriet however had been struck on her arms and chest multiple times and sustained to blows to the head which split.
"new orleans" Discussed on The Adventures of Memento Mori
"I started this episode like every other episode. Find a topic and then find experts about the topic but to answer the question. Why does New Orleans embraced death as a culture? I didn't really know who the experts were. So I took some advice from a friend who had lived there. Just show up and go with the flow. You'll never find your answer with the plan. What is the danger of the cemetery's partly? Why do they need saved? Well they they continue to get older. The climate here the weather Natural disasters vandalism theft and apathy. But I didn't need a place to start my name's Amanda Walker. I'm the executive director of save our cemeteries so I found a nonprofit that was trying to save the local cemeteries and gave tours. My Name's Adam Stevenson. I'm a volunteer tour. Guide for Samer Cemeteries. Our job is to get people back into the cemeteries to appreciate them. I have one question before we go on as really nothing to do with cemeteries. What is the proper way to say? I know where you're going with. That New Orleans Orleans New Orleans so fond of. She's the only other person to pronounce the city of New Orleans. New Orleans ever ever ever say Nolan's people will laugh at you. Well that saved me from some embarrassment because I really wanted to say Nolan's as often as I possibly could another piece of advice that Amanda shared with me is that nobody that actually is from their calls. It the big easy because as I'm about to learn New Orleans ain't that big and it sure as hell ain't that easy. Misery is a word that I use on to all the time and I've actually referred to New Orleans specifically before the American war is being misery. Central I cannot think from Western point of view place worse to live two hundred years ago. Here imagine being in France and coming here might rather be dead. I mean it's hot. It's humid there. Hurricanes and snakes diseases. It's just the worst so you had to figure how. How are you gonNA live here? If you're like me. Junior high school American history is a bit of a blur so as a refresh. If France thought Louisiana was misery central. Why did they still colonize it? The French came here for a couple of reasons. The first reason is that the French claimed Louisiana Lasalle claim Louisiana. I think sixteen eighty two. I don't remember the exact aide who cares. The exact date was Louisiana. Was everything drained by the Mississippi River and its tributaries understand that Europe? That was their thing. They're moving to the new world and claiming territories. They wanted goal. They wanted silver. They wanted what happened and during the new world territory land grab. The city of New Orleans was built because of its strategic location just before it joins the Gulf of Mexico the Mississippi River snakes into a crescent moon providing the only place to build the port but the French never really cared about Louisiana. I mean it didn't create because there were no gold mines. There was no Pearl Fisheries. Whatever said he's kind of sat there and eventually it's more complicated and I'm telling right now but then they gave the Spanish. The Spanish remploy forbid gave it to the French again and then eventually Americans got it and the Americans received Louisiana because they didn't want Louisiana that one of the port of New Orleans at the time half of American goods imported and exported came through the port of New Orleans this included the African slave trade. The savior was found in seventeen eighteen. The first enslaved Africans arrived here in seventeen nineteen and I mentioned this on tour before that there are those who say that New Orleans. The French city. It's Spanish city. It's a Caribbean city. It's whatever it's also an African setting everything that you come down here to see that his New Orleans you could go to Sheboygan you come here buddy come here. Because the culture in every aspect of our culture has an influence to it. Traditionally European colonizers buried their dead and then tried to do the same here but there was a problem nor liens is a swamp so if you bury the body it would soon just pop right. Back up to the surface and because cremation was against Catholic law. They started burying the bodies in the levy on the high ground of the river but then there was an even bigger problem. They were digging a lot of holes in the only thing separating the city from the Mississippi River so eventually that's where the above ground barrels came from. They evolved there originally sort of like just right above the ground. And then if you look at you know go through Latin America the Caribbean you will see above ground tombs. The Latin Spanish thing but also parallel says in Paris. The most famous cemetery on this planet these in the Western world you have above ground tunes. There was a concept. Change in idea about a cemetery obscure came. It changed from being a graveyard and someplace where there was. Death in horror to someplace was almost more pastoral. It was almost an attempt to bring a little bit of heaven or the peace down to Earth. And so you go through PAL Hsieh's in Paris and you see these beautiful sculptures. It's beautiful and that's what they tried to do here. And so when he walked. These above ground cemeteries. It's a function of all these things. Functional local topography yes. It's a function of Latin American adaptations to local culture but French fashion as well. But what's unique is that is a fusion of all these different cultures coming together. Which of course is really honestly a metaphor for the city of new ones in general so I think you said that seventy percent or seventy five percents of Saint Louis unwanted or abandoned abandoned. Is that the one where Nicholas Cage has its period. What's for the abandoned stuff? What is the process? So say if you're not a rich celebrity say you are richer liberty. What can you still how? How does one go about a tomb that has not seen a burial in fifty years or more the archdiocese for example? We'll say that's abandoned. And then they can renovate it not touch it. But it is a lengthy process and a lot of people like I said don't have deeds and so it's not one person's in perpetuity you can be with a whole generation of your family in one two. That's the whole point. The whole point is somebody who holds deed owns the cemetery the tomb and then that gets passed down so the whole point is be used generation by generation by generation Maria Vo. There's there eighty nine documented burials in her tomb and some of them are slave former slaves. That had nowhere to go infants. That died there. People that are black white brown all in that one tomb and they'd had nowhere to go so she was kind enough to to allow that so It doesn't have to necessarily be your family. If you buy a tomb there remains have to be moved elsewhere. You can't just shove grandma with someone else's Graham on after you you buy it. It's it's it's complicated so there is no I am not in Cheboygan. Mineta of this is just confirmation bias because a short death is it's it's death is overt in the sense of. It is a part of this city. I think you're hesitant to answer. I'm hesitant answered in the sense that I don't think that most New Orleans embraced death and I think maybe it's it's sort of an ineffable question I and that's almost. I don't want to feel pretentious by saying I'll explain this. Let me explain why we embrace death. We don't embrace step. Maybe I was wrong. Maybe New Orleans doesn't embrace death in its culture. Maybe I just think that because I spent the last eight hours in a cemetery after the fabulous tour Amanda and Adam recommended that I had determined and find a gentleman by name of Sylvester Francis if I wanted to know about the real culture of New Orleans. He's just the person to tell me after this palos fellow provocateurs that believe death as topic worth talking about. We need your help spreading the would be slightly odd yet.

I would guess that for a lot of you listeners when you hear New Orleans, you think drinking whether that's mardi gras related or in general French quarter very late night shenanigans. Yes.

We got to speak with Elizabeth Pearce founder of drink and learn which is a walking tour that looks into the history of cocktails, and cocktail culture.

You're not required to participate in it. But at least need to know what's going on. So I love asleep from the very early stage. We were drinking for the sick and the children, but. But it's because we are in a swamp. Life was hard the government ignoring you things are going to crappy. Then like, you you drink for this is what people do and people continue to do in in difficult situations. But anyway, so all of these like facets contribute to an identity, and that one of the pillars of that identity is about. Cutting loose and drinking is an integral part of that drinking is different in New Orleans, or at least it is among New Orleans. Oh, yeah. It's not something you do to get drunk, or at least most of the time. Generally. It's not that's amateur. Our children are exposed to responsible drinking at a young age to the idea of ago Cup or a before dinner drink. We have a whole episode on New Orleans cocktails and drinking culture plan. Oh, yeah. But in the meantime, here's Elizabeth again describing the local attitude towards drinking. It's very civilized, and it isn't hasty, and if you have a drink in your hand, and this is true for coffee too. But. Do you have the a beer and all kind of slow you down makes you pause kind of look around like, oh, I had noticed that house in my neighborhood before that balcony, stop and listen to a musician. It it alters the way that noon interact in public space, and the other thing that I think it does this is stretching it a little bit. But like go with me. Okay. When you were in a restaurant. We all roll at a table. And if someone came in joined us, we would look scans at them. That is weird because this is like our area. And it's like we planted a flag. But if you're in a bar people sitting next to you, and they will talk to you. And you do not think there is anything amiss with that. Now, you may not talk back to them are they may be creepy or whatever. But the the interaction is publicly sanctioned, and it often leads to some really delightful encounters unexpected, you know, you meet people in a bar. You don't meet in restaurant same way until I believe that the walking with the drink carry the spirit of the bar, which that it makes you just a little more open to the chance encounter the possibility. Yeah. To engage with the world around him. It's difficult to capture in audio in like a forty minute to an hour episode everything that New Orleans is the experience of being there. But it is heavy and joyous. It's the culmination of all of these cultures and all of this history super producer Dylan summed up his first experience this way in studio when we got back from our trip. I've never been anywhere. At least on that scale makes you come through New York, and you can see all these different cultures coming together. But at that scale, I'd never been anywhere that had such strong influence from such different cultures that was coming together. And that they were so determined to preserve and to promote and just the way that things come together where you can eat like four different places in the world in one bowl. It's amazing. Yeah. This has says French influenced the says Caribbean influences as talion influence this has like the Creole Cajun influence. It's just I loved it. I I love being able to experience that through food because I don't know if I've ever been anywhere where I ate a dish and experienced so much of the world in one dish. So that was really really cool. And Dickie Brennan told this story of a.

"My first time in New Orleans while my best friend and travel, buddy. Cried over her ex boyfriend. I was like I'm awkwardly eat this meat and try to console you. He's also the author of several books. Three time James beard best chef of the south semifinalists and finalists. And yes top chef contestant. He offered up the song version of these events. Mid interview eighteen fourteen we took a little trip along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississippi took a little bacon, and we took a little beans fought the bloody British in New Orleans. Oh, it was great. Did you put in this cultural note about the war of eighteen twelve just to have him sing about it not to have him sing? But that was definitely a plus. Yeah. Also, interesting side note by the time the battle of New Orleans took place the treaty to end the war of eighteen twelve had already been signed. It just took a while to get word out to New Orleans by this point New Orleans was a rich city in the mid nineteenth century, you could find the largest concentration of millionaires between New Orleans and Baton Rouge due to things like the slave trade and sugar plantations. The civil war changed this deeply enor- liens went from an area of wealth to one of poverty and racial tension. A free people of color and man's paid slaves entered local politics, and then we're forced out in eighteen seventies. As the Ku Klux Klan rose to power to cover the labor shortage plantation owners brought immigrants from the Philippines, China and Sicily, and eventually a lot of Italians came over due to political strife in that whole area. The Chinese mostly kept their traditional foods. And for decades, they were distinct to Chinatown areas and restaurants in New Orleans, but. The Filipinos and talion had a pretty deep influence on Creole cuisine Creole cuisine being the cuisine of the city. We spoke with Amy sins. The founder of Lang LA a culinary entertainment company as she describes it a traveling food show named after the effort mentioned Madame lingua New Orleans is I think one of the few places where when you go to get a Snickers bar or your reese's. Peanut butter cups at the grocery store, right next to it is a little bag of dried shrimp, and that is thanks to the Manila men who taught us that you can take the sweet lake shrimp, dry them in the sun. If you'd like to eat them as a snack you can. But if you are making a seafood Gumbo, and you're stock just needs a little more fortification. You throw the shrimp in. That's you know, the Filipino community introduced us to that. But they don't get full credit for. Why are seafood Gumbo can be? So delicious around the eighteen fifties is when the Sicilian started to move in and mass and they entered -duced New Orleans to the canned tomato they can to mate a single handedly transformed every New Orleans dish. So it kind of turned into Cajun was rustic country Creole was fancy city. And then it was like does it have tomato. Or does it not have a tomato? We'll talk more about the interplay between Cajun and Creole in a bit. But so at the same time the postwar period produced a lot of art, museums, electrified street, cards and music. Yes. Jazz by the late nineteenth century, New Orleans was developing jazz, as we know it we spoke with Eric cypher a historian with the aforementioned New Orleans historic collective about. Well about a lot of jazz history. But of particular interest might be the history of the iconic second line. If you didn't know second lines are parades descended from jazz funerals nowadays, they're popular is something you might do for your wedding or like a Tuesday. Yes, exactly. It is a celebration event that invites participation you and super producer Dylan were invited to join a second line while we were there. Oh, yeah. One was passing bias, and it almost swept us up. It was a great experience for me because I was on the phone trying to speak to someone that I learned New Orleans is not a great city for trying to hear someone on the phone. And this participation. That's where the name comes from at least in part the folks hosting and organizing the parade which in a funeral..

"That quote that you heard at the top was from Dr Jessica Harris whose ager analyst podcast her in the author of several books exploring African and Caribbean food ways that quote, the south is north from here fundamentally changed how we thought about New Orleans. She wasn't the only one who said it either. We heard it echoed from Dr Howard Conyers who is both a barbecue pit master and an actual rocket scientist. Also, New Orleans is very much a different city from the rest of the south isn't really a different city from the rest of United States. The international. City. I will say is definitely the northernmost Caribbean city to start thinking about the Haitian revolution into who owned. Territories is certain time before New Orleans became part of the United States in a food experiences up in a part of I don't think today anywhere else. We spoke with might be a little biased. But if you go there, you feel it and everyone talked about it. Here's Katie Cass Burien co owner of our knows a restaurant that celebrated its hundredth birthday last year. People celebrate a Monday, like it's, you know, not happen again the next week. I, and that's what I say that people have joie to be here that's unmatched. And you know, it doesn't have to be anything really crazy going on that people are just out one have a good time into this from the general manager Christopher Horner over at the Bombay club it cocktail bar in the heart of the French quarter. You Orleans is like New Orleans city I've ever been in. As a great feel all the time. It's comfortable if not perfect, and that's that's that's New Orleans. And here's Rebecca shatman, the general manager at broussard's, another one of the city's oldest restaurants. There's no other place. Like, there's nowhere else that you can walk and feel the history, but also feeling gauged with your food and your senses. And this the vibrancy, and there's it's just a feeling, you know, it's the people it's the environment. It's the history. It's the culture it's how we continue to honor the past but really wanna push forward. As author William Faulkner once wrote the past isn't dead in New Orleans that was also echoed by a tourist leader that I my first time in New Orleans, it's a ghost tour. And he said he said it this way, the dead, don't stay dead and. Orleans. We experienced while. We were there the dead people part. But well well coming from Atlanta where things over ten years older torn down. We all felt this history in the air, restaurants or bars made Goldstone above ground. Cemetery is not to mention ghost or upon ghost tour and go story upon ghost story. We missed are scheduled ghost tour, and I'm still so mad about it. But our interviewees made up for it. How anyway. Yeah. Especially doing a show about food. The history of New Orleans is very present. You can tell the whole story of the city through food and drink so a quick history lesson. Brief because Norrland's is as mentioned and intimidating fifty to tackle. Oh, yeah. We've probably left things out. We're sorry. We're trying to not become a like forty hour New Orleans podcast.

"Back to New Orleans where we had a targeting call. Against middle. Tennessee Zach Dobson I think he has been thrown out of the game. You're correct, sir. I didn't quite catch the announcement by referee Adams Savoy, but David explain this because it's targeting call and he wasn't a helmet to helmet hit. But he was a stuck his helmet in the mid section of the punt returner Clinton duck was getting ready to make the play on the Pont reception. He wasn't even able to get over towards the ball, which is a few yards to his right. Maybe four or five yards. But before we had an opportunity to go over make a play. Dobson got down the field, the true freshman. He's had a rough night. He's had some tough plays. But very high impact place in night. But he leads with his helmet, right? Into the abdomen of Clinton. Doc. That's a really dangerous play because ducks looking up in the air for the football and leading with your helmet with the crowd of the helmet. You don't have to go helmet-to-helmet or up in the neck area. If you're leading with the crown a helmet a special. With the defensive player that's grounds for targeting and it being disqualified and Dobson's already been led into the tunnel. All right. The penalty pushes the ball up to the thirty six yard line. First and ten for the mountaineers who already lead thirty one six. And that was a twenty four six game at the half. They took the opening third quarter kickoff marched down and scored middle. Tennessee got a torch midfield had pontoon that we just had that place announced the first down in ten. Here's a running play out to the left and trying to some extra yards out of it. It's number six Cameron people's for Stanley seen him tonight to freshman from Louisville Alabama picks up about let's see up to the thirty seven. So we got a yard second down and nine coming up. You're just joining us. This game was tilting blue raiders way early couple of mistakes turnovers on apps states first couple of possessions, but middle Tennessee could not capitalize good field position. Here we go people's again, turning right corner breaks the tackle these to the fifty far sideline forty breaks. Another tackle at the thirty down the sideline. Ten five touchdowns. Cameron people's takes it to the house. How about sixty three yards? However there is a flag on the play factors a flag. There's two of them down one near the goal line. One back at the thirty yard line. Zach Thomas the quarterback was shaken up on the play and he is heading to that sideline with a trainer. So let's see what the penalties are four. Once again, Adam Savoy, these officials are out of the AFC. We'll tell us the penalties. I don't see anybody. Coming back down field. David. Let's this is gonna count. I wonder if this was a a roughing com quarterback on just a run play. He might have been targeted and he doesn't look. He's coming off the to the sideline. He does. Not look good. Officials still talking it over here. So how about people's with that huge Ron broke a couple of tackles?.
