Robert Costa on the Eastman Memo
"You. You've had a long book laby had a great bestseller parallelism bookstores everywhere continues to sell. It continues to make news. In fact, let's go back to the most recent headlines Robert Costa from peril. What is the latest, it's really the John eastman memo, John is a friend of mine, and I've known him forever. He's a very fine lawyer. You put in the short form of the eastman memo. Did you have the long form available to you? Well, there are two versions of the eastman memo that eastman memo that matters in our report in peril is the one that goes to senator Mike Lee of Utah that was circulated by The White House. The January 2nd 2021. Did each man know it was going to go out from The White House because lawyers will often. I haven't talked to John yet. But they will often prepare talking point memos, summary memos that are not supposed to go a to the client or be to the top of the client chain and certainly not outside of the client's control. Well, I'm not sure what eastman knew about the circulation of this memo. I do know that John was in the Oval Office with Trump and Pence and Marc short and pence's advisers on January 4th, two days before the certification. Pushing the argument, eastman has made further comments about that meeting The New York Times in our book, which is we stand by. President Trump was really telling Trump, assuming Trump was really telling Pence, listen to Jon, listen to John, you can do this. You can walk away, try to allow this to go to the house, delay the certification.

The Disconnect Between Public Helth, and the Public
"The New York Times today reports that the FDA advisory panels were afraid of issuing complicated advice because they would further confuse the public, indicating an underlying problem as to the public certainty about the efficacy of CDC and FDA guidance. They have somehow over a year and a half of this virus crushed CDC and FDA credibility. And I don't think I would have ever imagined that the CDC would lose America's trust, but it has. What do you do? I mean, it's just a given. I like Tony Fauci, I like Frances columns they've been guest on this show, I respect both them great sold men. But there is obviously a disconnect between public health and the public. How do you build the bridge again? What do you do? Well, one place to start would be where our conversation was a moment ago, which is the social networks. And it's not just Facebook. It's Facebook, Twitter, Google search algorithms. The way people jump on to Instagram TikTok. All of these are massive influencers of the public. And we don't want to get out and deeply regulate them, but we do want to establish guardrails about patent untruths that are flying around in those circuits. That's a pretty good place to start. Number two is we need our elected leaders to stand behind people of quality who are in apolitical roles. Mark milley, Anthony Fauci. And not allow them to become political football. So I think it's, as usual, it's leadership and the social networks inside. It's also technology that can help you. And these are difficult big conversations for the nation, but we have lost our way here in both the instances we've talked about. We need to get our way back to the center.
In Taiwan War Game, Few Good Options for U.S. To Deter China
"Washington Post this morning 5 a.m. Dan lamothe in Taiwan war game few good options for you as to deter China. The center for a new American strategy ran a war game involving the dung shoe island. I'd probably mispronouncing that. Didn't go well. It didn't go well. And in fact, they're even worried about bigger scenarios than that. I'm not surprised that you surprised admiral. No, I'm not. I've participated in several of those war games over the years. U.S. indo Pacific command runs those on a regular basis. And they're increasingly reflecting the reality that China has many more ships much more capability in their aircraft, longer land based ballistic and tactical missiles. That's been on the upswing for a decade and more and it's starting to really bleed into the results of these war games in a negative way. In the end, the article says the best advice is that warn the Chinese ahead of time of the consequences they would face if they moved on any of the islands, including Taiwan, with Japan playing a significant role. Haven't we already done that didn't President Biden sort of accidentally do that in the town hall last week where he said we would defend Taiwan? Well, he certainly said that we would defend Iran and we have a commitment to do so. But then within 24 hours you saw both The White House spokesperson gen sasaki and The Pentagon in Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, kind of returned to this former policy. It's called strategic ambiguity of not telling China exactly what we're going to do. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle, my own view is that a, we should, in fact, assist Taiwan aggressively if they are attacked. And B, it's time to tell China that we are going to do that. And I think there is a growing sense of that in the public conversation about this.
McAuliffe-Youngkin Governor's Race Tests Democrats' Tenuous Hold on Virginia
"David, when I considered the Glen young campaign, Glen young has probably said he is combined everyone from the forever trumpers to the never trumpers. That is the winning formula. And you have to do it in such a way as the independent don't even think Trump is being discussed. And I look at that race and I think Terry mcauliffe is getting a lot of voicemails saying Terry, sorry, we're not going to be able to make it on Tuesday night. It looks like a wake over there right now. He could still pull it out, I suppose Joe Biden's going across the river today and I suppose anything is possible with turnout, but boy are parents angry over Virginia schools, and not just CRT, the quarantine rules aren't driving people, nuts. Yeah, look, I have to say, because Virginia has over time become so reliably democratic. I don't think you can rule anything out and even Republicans who are optimistic. I think this thing is going to be really close. But I think where Terry mccaul is made a mistake is without Trump in The White House. The fact that he's an ex-president and I think may be attempts to paint Glenn youngin as a Trump foot soldier ineffective. And I think he did not focus enough on the issues that voters care about. A lot of them, this stuff is way over complicated. Sometimes you're on the wrong side of an issue because what you believe because of timing. But sharing a call have had a chance had he done so to say, look, you know, I've been gone for four years and I realized what has happened while I've been gone and why I flawed my successor, we need to make changes and you go to focus on this just as much as when young can do. And recognize the problem they had in the suburbs. I don't know if they took suburban votes for Democrats for granted because of how the Trump era was. But I think there was just a miscalculation there. And even if they weren't going to focus on education, I thought issues and issue issue based attacks unless the personal attacks are present themselves in such a way that you just can't pass them up. I thought it would have been much better than trying to paint on junk and as Trump because it doesn't answer to voters how are you going to fix my problem?

Boom! The NSBA Apologizes for Letter to Biden's FBI
"Merrick Garland admitted that the foe letter, the fake letter that concocted artificial complaint from the national school board association was the reason why he said that we're going to start using the FBI to go after moms and dads. Jim Jordan, one of the few good guys in Congress, great friend phenomenal person, cut 23 he's been all over at play tape. So I read the letter and we have been seeing over time. Wow, wow wow. I didn't ask you so you read the letter. That's your source? So let me be clear. This is not a prosecution or some study, some effort, some investigation, someone did that said there's been a disturbing uptake or you just take the words of the national school board association. On the national school board association, which represents thousands of school boards and school board members, says that there are these kind of threats. And now the national school board association is not just a little bit apologizing. You read this letter from the national school board association. This is a full on French style retreat. I mean they are going back to their villages, they are done. The national school board association is surrendering. They are waving the white flag. You read this letter from the national school board association, they sent on Friday retracting the other one. They're like we're done. We are suing for peace, we're sorry. Because yes, even Democrat moms and dads are reading this national schoolboard association letter in saying, wait, what is that? Well, on what? I know some of these people just showing up and complaining. That are wondering and worrying about the direction of our schools and now you're gonna go use the Patriot Act against them? We're not gonna put up with
What Is Hammurabi's Code?
"Is. What is hammer Robbie's code? This is a good question, I think. And what is a significance with the old test of it profits? Oh yeah, this is it's actually not the profits. It's earlier in the Old Testament. The bottom line is that when they discovered Hamilton's code, I think this was in shushan or susa, which they also discovered. Like this is, you know, the archeologists keep discovering things. They go, oh my goodness, we've discovered the city of shushan or susa, which is where the book of Esther takes place. Nobody knew did it really exist. Boom, they discover it. And while they're excavating it, this is in a 150 years ago, they discovered this steel or Stela, I never know how to pronounce it. With what we now call hammurabi's code. And it's a detailed law listing of laws, very detailed. And it lists, for example, the price of a slave at 20 shekels. And that and other things, which I won't go into because we don't have time. But we now have something from, you know, many, many centuries before Christ that corroborates something that never could have been corroborated before, which is intense little specifics of when Joseph is sold into slavery. In the early pages of genesis, how much money was paid for him? How many shekels? And you can trace it through the early pages of genesis. So here again, you have out of the sands of the desert of the Middle East. You're getting archeological historical corroboration of tiny details from the Bible,

Former U.S. Representative Mark Meadows on the Fight Against Widespread Voter Fraud
"And we are back one on one with Mark Meadows. The last month I heard you give a speech at hillsdale. Yeah. And I'm just gonna say, it was ballsy. It was it was on swamp like. Yeah. Because you talked about November. Yeah. And you said, yeah, really? Let's talk about voter fraud. You want to see voter fraud. Come to my office at CPI. And I'll show you the ballots that are a little bit hinky. Yeah. Let's talk about this because I've had it with those who say, and they're saying it to the president. Oh, you've got to look forward. You can't look back. You got to look forward. If we don't get an accurate picture of what happened last time, we can't prevent wide scale voter fraud. So what is your diagnosis and what is your prescription for the next two years Mark? Yeah, so the prescription has to be audits more broadly than just a few contested states that have been in the news in very high profile. We need to make sure that we have audits. So those are audits that happen in states where Donald Trump was declared the winner and audits and states where he wasn't declared the winner. Which everybody should be in favor of? Sure. I mean, it's all about making sure that the ballot from a Sebastian gorka to the ballot box actually goes from you into the ballot box. It's not tampered with. It's not manipulated and quite frankly, it's not carried by anybody else other than you to the ballot box. And we've got away from that. And it's legal in California. You and I have talked about this. Yeah, the harvest the balance, but it's not just that aspect of it, Sebastian. Here's the other the other aspect. We have to make sure that the plays that were run and 2020 are not repeated in 2022 and 2024. And so when we look at we look at audits, we have to look at forensically some of these audits. And then we have to also understand that in coming up with state legislatures, working with your state legislatures, there are over 300 bills that are out there. But we have to make sure that we get it because there's a simultaneous play being run at the
Mark Meadows and Sebastian Discuss the Russia Accusations
"People. Let me share a story that I think I've mentioned on the show, but just to illustrate what mark's talking about, how I knew it was all garbage. I was in the oval. It was just the president and I very early on in the administration. I was there on a purely national security issue. I believe it was to do with North Korea at the time if I remember well in the missile launches. And we're in the conversation. It stops. I'm waiting for the president to make a decision on something. Room goes quiet. And then out of nowhere, I think it was the day I think the reason it triggered him, I think it was the day that his son in law did oppress a shower, a little spray outside the west wing on the Russia accusations. Right. And so I think that must have triggered the president and out of nowhere, he says to me, he says they won't find anything. Now he's angry that they won't find anything because there is nothing. And he was so angry because he knew the whole thing was a fabrication Mark. Well, listen, I talk about this in a book, I've got coming out. He called me when I was a member of Congress. He said, he said, Mark, your wife has had more interactions with Russia than I have. I promise you that. There is nothing to be found. He says, go out there and fight. I still remember where I was who was seated at that particular time. He was on a trip abroad. And when you look at this, you start to see that the swamp continues to fight back even today. Even last week, trying to fight back going after president Trump and those that they never stop do that. No, they never stop. Why? Because they're threatened by him. And all he stands for, and it's not his power. It's the power of the people that are tuned in right now, the American
Fauci Under Fire for Sick and Twisted Beagle Puppy Experiments
"According to documents obtained by a freedom of information request, white coat waste project and subsequent media coverage, from October 2018 to February 2019, NIA spent $1.86 million of taxpayer funds on drug tests involving 48 beagle puppies. The dogs were all between 6th and 8 months old the commission test involved injecting and force feeding the puppies and experimental drug for several weeks before killing them and dissecting them. Fauci funding experiment again in Tunisia, as we mentioned where they had to have starved, sandflies, beast on them alive. The invoice to the naid for the actual work was four or dect. Known as devocalization involves slitting a dog's vocal cords in order to prevent them from barking, howling or crying. Approximately 30% of all the promising medication have failed in human clinical trials because they are found to be toxic, despite promising preclinical preclinical trials and animal models. But 60% of the candidate drug fails due to lack of efficacy. The people who fund the torture of dogs should not be able to make medical decisions about your children. The people that have time and time again said that we want beagles heads to be eaten alive by sandflies in Tunisia, which again is something out of some sort of James Bond movie. What does that say for the type of leader that we actually have in the federal health bureaucracy? What does that say actually for Fauci and for Francis Collins themselves and now Fauci comes out and he says that he wants to have vaccines available for children than the first week or two in November. Some people are gonna say these two things are unrelated. I won't. Anyone who tortures beagles, I'm gonna stop listening to you about anything. Like you're a sick person. You need

"of times" Discussed on #CreateYourEarthLife
"I'm also feeling an urge to learn about the end days and I know other people are feeling that urge. The reason I'm doing the day approaching is that we are doing it at our church, and everyone pretty much voted for it. We had four other books that we were looking at and they're all really good books, but pretty much everyone was like, I want to learn about the end base. And so that's what we're doing. And I'm happy to be sharing it with you guys because I feel like it is so important that you guys know about it. For people that are not Christian or who have not been saved, sometimes don't even like to say Christians. Even though in the Bible, it says that that's what we're called. And I like being called that people take it as this whole religion thing and Christianity is not about religion. It is about relationship. It is not about doing rituals is not about sacrifices. It was in the Old Testament. It's not like that anymore. That's why Jesus came. God said, no, I want you to have a relationship with my son. I want you to believe in your heart that he is real that he loves you that he's going to forgive you. And that is your way to me. So having a relationship with Jesus, and to have a relationship with Jesus, is to get to know him and to get to know him is to pray to him and to read his word to read the Bible. That's how you get to know Jesus. And then when you read it, the words will become on your heart, you know, there will be tattooed on your heart. And you will begin living a different life. Your life will change for the better. I can tell you that. All right, so X two, 16 through 21. Here is another area in the Bible where it is talked about what is going to happen in the end time. So here's Peter talking and he is sharing a by Joel. Says but this is what was spoken by the prophet jewel, and it shall come to pass in the last days says God that I will pour out my spirit on all flesh. Your sons and your daughters so prophecy. Your young men shall see visions, your old men.
"of times" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Menu
"A man who was launched a number of restaurants and continues to do so even though there is still plenty of uncertainty about the future with the ongoing pandemic to widely reported staffing issues in the uk. Victory lou gehrig's the co founder of big mama restaurant group that runs over a dozen restaurants in france spain and prison. The group opened his first restaurant in paris in two thousand thirteen. And the recently opened of mario in covent garden is already. The group's third restaurant in london. Victim has been busy creating new technology for restaurants making paying for meals. Quicker and easier with the software called someday. We discussed all this with him but i. He explained his philosophy of what kind of restaurants he wants to create designing restaurants or creating sore. As we said is exactly like trying to describe your love so love is a very vague word and it means so many things it means. I love you i respect you i want to marry you i want children fuck etc etc etc. I want you to cuddle me. I want to catch. I desire you. I feel. I cannot have you so many things behind love. Selena russians is a similar stuff. How can we break it into so many technical stuff and we can but to a certain extent. How do we design a restaurants. We sit as a team so i. We design the russians ourselves. We don't outsource this. I feel like design is a very strong part of a restaurant moment. of course it starts and ends with food because people are gathering around meal sa- concept of a restaurant but there is so much more to that. It's the design it's the plate. It's the music it's the service it's how we talk to you it's how it dressed is the thickness of the paper of the menu etc etc. So did design is a very important part of its. I wouldn't feel as the whole restaurateur if we were outsourcing. It creating restaurant is to us about building an experience and the best way to do that is to share emotions foods about emotions moment others all about emotions. I try to identify emotions. We have in ourselves that we love usually it comes with memory. So what memory do we have as a team in italy this studio our who could kick his studio. It's a phenomenon showing. We don't take ourselves too seriously so kick it would say where you're going on holiday in italy because that's going to probe impact dressings redoing next year. Yes it's true where we're going on holiday where our chef is originally from his memories on the amalfi coast or the fact that these restaurants many people from the kitchen from venice and they're all so many memories they have odysseus the dish. My grandmother used to do. This is the place that was at my uncle's place. And i always thought it was fun because when i would go to my uncle the place would be in the shape of vegetables so we gather all these memories and then of course. It's about making choices. So then you gather them you write them down on posted on the wall and we collect all these memories and all these emotions and then it's okay. Is there a coherent story that we can build based on this. And that's how we start and indicator of ivy architecturally. There's a love inspiration from tuscany. The cinna cathedral has is an amazing memory for me and also for many people in the stuff and i remember the gren s of the cathedral thinking. Wow or these green wide stripes. It's so strong. It's so bullish architecture at the time. The guy said we're gonna do this and it's going to be a hundred years worksites and it's going to be all striped white and green. How her bullish that is and when we visited the site in covent garden and we had these huge space with this huge perspective which is very rare in london fed like a cathedral because it's very long and very high under ceiling and we said that acosta cathedral in may first memory for cathedral in italy's the cathedral that's how it started and then we've built around tuscany older memories we had from tuscany and then we added a form of northern talent touch with many reference to veto because the kitchen team is a lot originally from vendor. And if you're doing things that passionate about you're going to be better than others and if you ask people from vendor to cook dishes from northern italy then be better at it and they'll cook better than if you ask them to cook tomato sauce which is very southern italy. I bet i think is interesting. That's you you launched the restaurants you mentioned already. Mario about a month ago in london of garden. Did you have any doubts. I'm wondering visa curious. Time to launch restaurants considering that we are still in the middle of a pandemic and we don't really know what's waiting for us. Just wait until it's automo- or the winter. Did you calculate that risk or did you worry about that or did you have the confidence. And where did you get it from. I hope what i'm gonna say. That doesn't sound too. Generic bits as restaurateur or and as an entrepreneur to eighteen. Months have been. I can amazing lesson a life lesson. The kids of course as an entrepreneur. You calculate everything you have this passion for mastering in controlling kitchen you'll very controlling so assuming russo. Many processes cooking is very precise action in cooking for ten thousand people. A day is very precise. And you can't mess was you put stuff in people's mouths you have to be very precise and controlling. I'm very controlling person. We're all very controlling. So of course you want to control your opening opening dates your media plan how you who are gonna. You're first client. All of that is very controlled process. And we're not doing it for the first time then comes covered and after one week of cuvee last year. It said like okay. This is totally out of control. And now we're going to have to navigate and learn to move absolutely out of control. Now it's it's been eighteen months. It's still absolutely out of control. You open when you can and you go with the flow and it's actually a very different attitude. I feel like i'm more compete in happy person. Actually today where ruined that. I can get with the flow even in my business even with running a thousand five hundred people company i can go with the flow and actually it works and it's all about being agile and it's about moving very fast as team while you can open. You have a window to open. Let's do it because maybe in september everyone is back home with delta virus. Who knows now we can open. And we're opening now in coven gordon which is a place. That of course drives every londoner. Because every londoner we'd be happy together and kevin garden which is a strong thing but kevin godden but it also drives people who are going out and cinemas upright cetera needles drives so many tourists from around the world right now.

"of times" Discussed on Tara Brach
"Is called we rise to play a greater part. That's really the boaty sought of our times and i few days ago today. An interview with the washington post that was extensively about how to work with the extra stress of this holiday season. And then i got curious. And i thought i'd ask you. How many of you feel like. It's extra stressful. This particular holiday season. Can i see by hands. Okay so let me see how many feel it's very normal for you right now. This is a normal level. Yeah i would say that was about two thirds extra stressful one-third stressful for those. That are listening on podcasts. I ask that because for many people that i've talked to the combination of the holidays with recent upheaval round the elections that combo the sense of potentially the kind of conversations and interactions with family members. Who might not agree. It just seems to all a combine in a that's intense and even without the elections. Many people know the forty eight hour limit. That if if we're with too long with family stuff happens. Somebody recently sent me a little cartoon with a where. There's a psychiatrist and lying on the couch. Is this long tall. Cactus with a cowboy hat and he says you know. We weren't what i would call a touchy feely family. How which i thought it was cute and then somebody else sent me one. And it was this annual convention and it's huge auditorium and the convention was adult children of normal parents. Only two seats were felled. Fixed a lot of us so we explore then at these times holiday or not just at times. That are stressful for us. Which could be for personal reasons or more societal reasons because it's often an interaction. How do we live our moments from the best that we are you know. The body sought path in the buddhist tradition. Really means it's an archetype for all of us are evolutionary potential. It's living away card. I mean every one of us is on this this unfolding of realizing the wisdom that comes from being present and the tenderness that comes when our heart wakes up and went as as the more we realized that the more very naturally we serve and we save her life. There's a reason that you know all this research keeps showing how people that are generous or less depressed people that feel a lot of gratitude are happier. And there's a correlation. Because the more we are inhabiting our fullness we can be the more at home and by contrast. When we're feeling very self-centered and reactive judgmental we don't like ourselves so how do we awake and our full potential at times of intense stress and what we find is that for many. It's when it gets intense that actually we feel more inclined towards helping you see it a natural disasters. It's like the best of people come out. People become incredibly aware of. Oh we're in this together and they care and i'm very aware that wartime everybody gets together when we see videos of racial violence week. It breaks our hearts now. There's a problem though that we forget if we're not in the war zone or in the middle of the natural disaster are constantly taking in the real world because so many of us are in enclaves that are buffered some and are speaking those of us who have privilege dominant culture that we forget so one of the queries tonight is how do we keep remembering truth that they're suffering so that our hearts can stay tender so we don't go back to sleep. Does that make sense. Okay i have been hearing from a lot of people especially in the last few weeks that something has broken open and it's harder to forget because if you read the newspaper you can't forget and one letter i got an email today. He writes signing petitions. Giving money to campaign doesn't feel like enough right now. I want to lend my voice back and hard to healing the wounds that keep us apart.
"of times" Discussed on Gurus of Comedy
"Than the cancer culture that we have, but I found particularly on Facebook and in the comedy space there is a very febrile world right now and it's almost like are you trying to have a discussion an argument is that I see your point of view. I mean, there's been a lot of problems in the sexual abuse of positions. Nothing in Los where Booker's are kind of using their position to kind of get favors to get stage time, which is terrible, but I was on a forum trying to destroy us and raise some points a bit like, you know, it comes from something bigger. It comes from power that they they don't just use sexual assault. They use, you know, blocking people getting stage time somewhere else and wage. Anyway, I was trying to bring up that as a topic but this person this she was female said like you have never been sexually assaulted you have no right to discuss this and it off. It was like this paid to play kind of concept. So unless I kind of have a deluge my exposure to a problem. My my opinion is of no value and life. I might have injured kind of some experience. I've experienced like minor bit of kind of you know, which Colour of racism or bigotry just by being an immigrant overseas not terrible, but took a little bit but I didn't feel like I have to kind of detail out my experience is just so I can have the conversation, you know? Yeah. I mean, it's like a bizarre thing where you have to like lay down your qualification of like being a victim to to like open. Yeah open that discourse. Really, I mean, that's exactly it sounds like well, I I'm I'm trying to have a positive conversation them, but they didn't kind of wanted me to be part of it. I said, okay, we'll find I find some people have drifted off and and maybe it's just like the echo chamber of the internet kind of promotes that very well. Yeah, so that kind of brings me a little bit to like JK Rowling's at the moment. She's kind of got himself a lot of trouble on her views about trans and she you know, she's kind of, went on a few essays on her position, but it's actually rippled back that people are burning her Harry Potter books, which I mean this is kind of the separation of the author from the content and they kind of say well if you're going to go back and like the castle is kind of viewed as a great artist, but it was a bit of a prick, you know, I think in a way it's it's a generational things as well because JK JK Rowling is she in her fifties. Yes, and I think I think the idea is I mean, you know, if he didn't have cancel culture you'd still have a black and white minstrels on the BBC. So I mean the thing is is if if that didn't exist, you'd still have all the racism and misogyny in the comedy that you had in the seventies. So so basically wage Cancel culture works in the sense that one generation looks at the the previous generations standards and then changes them. So that's the reason why you know, we thought we have what we have on TV now is because of that process and I think it's the same with JK Rowling in that you know, she she represents a particularly with with alleged and and and generational view of of of feminism and it's one that that doesn't it's inclusive of you know, I'm trans issues and what she seems to be unable to do is to assimilate what's going on now with with her own views and I think that's the problem. But whether that means we should stop watching Harry Potter or reading the books is another matter. I mean people have now started to I don't actually remember there being anything transphobic wage. Harry Potter, I mean, you know, there's they you know, the men even wear dress robes in that. I think the Ron Weasley, where's dress robes? I I just feel like you know, the separation of art from artist is important. If you don't agree with JK Rowling, you don't want to line her Pockets any longer, that's fine. But I mean burning a books like symbolically, I guess shows that you you dislike what she stands for now, but I feel like that that Taps into the idea of you fitting in and appearing like I mean, it's this cliche of being a virtue signaling. It seems like Katie Hopkins isn't Piers Morgan's is or or seem to love but that there is I think there is a grain of Truth in that that that you know other people can get the Harry Potter books. That's fine. I don't agree with some of the transphobic things that that she's throwing around. I certainly don't agree with this. This sort of she's become a figurehead for that kind of viewpoint and there's no seems to be like this on Twitter. Definitely this group of people that are like, yeah you go JK Rowling and they probably they're not even a fans of hers for any other reason than that. She has these views. It's just it's just bizarre to me. I enjoyed Harry Potter as a child. I think part of the problem is is that it's this this false dichotomy that that Twitter gives us and and and social media is that you're either with JK Rowling or against it and you have to decide which side you're on that. There's no there's no Nuance just so the position to take that. Yeah, I agree. You know, I agree with JK Rowling wanting equality for women. I agree with that strong views. I disagree with with her views about trans people, but that doesn't mean to say that I have to be against you know, but this seems to be like big problem with mental culture is that it kind of I think it's sort of comes from a very hard job. All the way back to some guards where you make a peasant a king for a day and then just so you can throw them into their volcano comes in from that as a yeah, we like to raise up people just so we have them on a pedestal so we can tear down. So if you kind of like I I mean you guys both seem of a similar vintage in that you probably remember the days when soccer was just at these guys are just footballers off, you know to page it. All right, but they weren't putting it in millions or whatever. The equivalent of millions was in the seventies. Whereas now they're kind of you know, you know stupid stupid money. But any of those kind of get caught I mean they guess it's like ripped down seems to be happening outside of even like it used to be just a pop stars and the sports stars were open his pedestal but in the past few years, like people who are like intellectuals who kind of or speaking out that they try and make rock stars think Jordan Peterson would be an example of this that they just wait for like this one. Thing that they get wrong and while people might agree with like ninety-five percent of what they say. They say there's one wrong thing about this topic. Maybe they merged closes or they mispronounced what they were saying, or maybe they they Believers but it completely invalidates everything else. They've said even though you know, what they have said is that mostly rice, but there's kind of a know you're canceled now, it's a lot to do with p r i think isn't that just the the sort of public Persona that which is so carefully cultivated, you know, so JK Rowling's always been like that, you know that the these people have always been like that. It's just that that they're so care their images. So carefully cultivated it never comes thru. I suppose this big media. That's big money. It's like everything if you know, I think it goes back to what that even you know, the monkeys or something or the Beatles that they weren't allowed say that they had girlfriends just so they dead It looked like they were available and.

"Right. It's about going beyond that and finding examples that actually work for people and to my mind, some of the more delicate solutions I've seen. Go back to your first point things about way finding things about knocking the ground to keep people apart potential carpet tiles in the dimensions. People need to be spread out sometimes. I think a simpler more considered solution would be much better. You mentioned that you're an educator and obviously program director of graphic design. You will be acutely aware and more than most of what I've kind of been calling the lost generation as sadly. A number of people who graduate who have moved through education, but kind of not graduated never had leaving shows never had their traditional end of term. What do you think about the class of twenty twenty and what's happened in design education? It's been really hard to actually have the time to process what's going on? I feel terrible for the students. Because you know before all of this happened. We were preparing for the degree shows and. And graduation and it the typical things that happen at certain points we just were about to start our last term at L. and students working finalizing their major projects, which we're going to go, and the degree shows and then covert hits. We can't actually have a show. We can't have graduation. There's no access to the studios. There's no access to the workshops and it just sort of. It's a crazy thing to happen not only to. To the students, but also to the staff and we weren't really given that much time to consider what this means so I think as I've been saying over and over again. We really are in triage mode at this point. I mean I feel for them I really do and this is an I. Don't know what anyone can do at this point to sort of give them that time back. Do you know what I mean thinking? Thinking back like graduation is not everyone attends such a big part. The degree show is such a huge part of the design experience, and even though they will have a virtual showcase that celebration feels very different from what they've envisioned and what they've been working towards for the past three years. I had probably a slightly difficult job market as we come out, government and successive governments have cut funding fairly stringently and in my opinion. The contribution of the creative industries, but from your perspective, what does it look like as a market for young talented students? Because you're in degree, shows those great for showing your parents and getting some kicks, but they're actually also where people get discovered where people get job offers where people's work becomes notable. Do you think there's any way that can be simulated online, or is this just going to have to be a grin and bear it moment for an unfortunate generation? There's positive things about online. I think the reach of a degree show that moves to a website that also lives on beyond the traditional three days that we have a degree show on four. Four, it's quite substantial. Because then people have access to this work for a longer period of time, they're more likely to see it when they have a moment. Rather than rushing through the degree shows I mean for everyone. The degree show quite a stressful time building it the opening, family and friends I think the degree show in the past several years has become less about finding a job. It's much more of a celebration than it was traditionally before as a space where people get discovered, and that's because education has changed quite a lot, but I think this is a really good opportunity in terms of something that lives on for a longer period of time. Time and something that gives students, even more exposure and chance for someone to go through their work and really read the text that's there in terms of the market that will exist. This one is very very hard to predict I mean for me. My interest is in our we actually in education, really having to think about what the design industry will look like now to really look at a future design industry and we. We like to think that we have trained our students to be I. Hate this word, but entrepreneurial in terms of considering their own opportunities to work together to develop their own studios to launch their own spaces where they can work on. On. The projects that interest them I still think there will be. There was always with the recession I graduated in the recession in two thousand, and as and that was really terrible market. It was a lot of hard work in terms of finding a job. The jobs were being cut, but they were still. There I think Newark new opportunities will evolve I think designers will start to discover that these just traditional spaces are not the only places they can work in. This is what we've been seeing for the past ten plus years I mean if you think designers working in government designers working in different spaces I. think it's time to kind of expand that. That industry is this is the time for that. When when looking for a job, but I do completely agree with you. In fact, monocle was started in two thousand seven, and after a rough for Sierra, it proved to be the time that made us and forged our identity as accompanying are kind of DNA, so I think there are opportunities, but as you say, I think we also need to be sensitive to the fact that it's quite tough. Time I wanted to get your opinion, lastly, Donna on the discussions around diversity in design that are taking place. There's a lot of collective soul searching and I think so there should be about the composition of our. Our Industries and about the opportunities afforded to people of all different ethnic backgrounds and minority backgrounds, tell me about the discussion in the design industry in in education at their plans afoot to try and get more people from different backgrounds through the system to engage with people different day. Where you sit on this discussion for me, it's basis of my research is a lot of this and in education. It's definitely one of the priorities that we have in terms of our curriculum in terms of who we have on teaching staff in management and things like that, so this is definitely something. We are discussing the academy. I see it in industry but I think. Think that that industry the way that they view these debates is in a different way because I fear that with institutions well, it becomes a tick box exercise rather than really thinking about the type of changes that need to occur, and this is the conversation that we need to be having right. Is it just ticking boxes and putting in some New People and saying here here we go, the job is done, or is it actually really considering everything that we're doing what is that? We're teaching, not just the content, but the ways that we teach in the types of work that we showed to. Students aren't definitions of design. These are all part of this. This conversation and we need to consider them, so that's the side from education. What I've seen industry I think that there's I think this conversation is picking up not as quickly as I would have liked. I guess because it's been something. We've been talking about for a very long time, but I fear that it's going to continue to be too slow. Despite the events from the past three weeks have highlighted how urgent this is. Will it change I? Don't know and those were the invaluable insights of Dr Donna. Abdulah she's program director of Graphic Designer Campbell Chelsea and Wimbledon College of Art Donna.

Topics perhaps the most timely one was about how we find our way back into the shops now. This is obviously just an issue around design, but I think for the first time in a long time, shopkeepers are having to think about how they signal space how they use their entrances and used their windows. What kind of role can designers play when it comes to getting the economy going and getting retailers back on the front line? Well I think it's been interesting exploring these spaces in the past three. I haven't stepped into the shops, because I don't Miss Shopping at all actually, but I have spent a considerable amount of time in waitress and other shops across the city, and I think that what is missing is actually that designer Lee thinking that you would expect you know how designers understand space, and what these different things on the floor, so these finals that you find on the floor are actually signaling to people so when you go to Tesco you actually look at the vinyl that's on the floor, and you're not sure what the symbol is telling. Telling you is that telling me to queue? This way is telling me to move in this direction, and you see this confusion amongst everybody in the store. What is missing here is design I. Think what's going on is that the visuals are very much what you would consider a lot of icons that for someone reading. It would say okay. This is quite straightforward, but actually it's not I think design plays a huge role in this especially with small shops. I find struggled a lot with the social distancing. There's a lot of products around and they. They just sort of had no time. No Guidance and they just put on the floor and just hope for the best by reducing the amount of people in the store, but it was quite stressful. Experience in terms of even with social distancing. There was still a lot of people there people to know how to navigate. The space design was very much missing within that experience and I think that it plays a huge role in terms of how we understand space particularly in these times. Maybe there's too much stuff in the shop, so designers can look. Look at a blueprint and say you know. Perhaps you move this here. He moved here. Move this here that way. You can maximize your space. And what about the Senate? What does it say? How do people read it? How are people actually using the space? So this type of user research that I think that the shops didn't even have time to do obviously and I think it's kind of no time to be snobbish I'm really happy that you mentioned tape as well because I think we all want the design solutions that people found to be. UNAMBIGUOUS and beautiful and directors in a way that is completely uncompromisingly perfect, but actually people are quite used to rubbing up against one another then not very used to going into shops, some shops, a quite small spaces, so I think a lot of it as you say is about. People taking the initiative and people doing things at any kind of golden rules, the if I were to draw on your theoretical knowledge of design in your in your great experience was the key to getting these messages across to people. Is it being utterly on ambiguous? Is it about making people smile sometimes? What advice do you have for people? A media restructuring that hold whole. Whole space. I think that we've been in this for quite some time. Now. I what I would have liked to see is an emphasis on how people are navigating the space and reiterating the way the space is configured. How are people responding to the Security Guard in the front tower? They responding to the two meter rule. How are they actually navigating the different aisles? Aisles and just to kind of conduct system that maybe doesn't make it as stressful. I think right now. The systems are stressful. Is there a way for us to add a certain amount of play may be I'm also kind of weary of that is this time I mean? There has been some quite clever things here and there but I just think that it's a very. Very sort of practical time, and what they need to do is just to ensure that people don't feel so overwhelmed when they come in the space, because it just feels like a haphazard solution that they've put together, and they're not really considering the next phase of it, you come into a shop and there's plastic everywhere and people are wearing all this gear and it's. It's not a great experience how to make that better. I'm not entirely sure right now and I'm not entirely sure that's. That's the main goal to me. I think the main goal of anyone working in spaces just to make that experience was already very stressful, less stressful as a considered space. I'm going to move on a little bit because we've got a few more topics to conduct. Grapple with but I. I think you've set the mark very high for complex questions for designers to solve. You mentioned the idea of corona drifting. which if you asked me to guess what it meant I? Don't think I'd get to what it does mean it's a new term on me, but the sense that lots of companies are producing. Shall We say far fetched ideas about how you can deal with the pandemic? Tell me. Me about the corona drifting why you think is worthy of discussion, so saw this article that a few people had posted and read through it. It's threatened by architect who got fed up of websites like design, boom and design. who were just I guess what she calls putting cheap mock-ups of cooled related design solutions, and these of course for for anyone who follows design press. They're sort of everywhere I. I think the author was just fed up with these ill considered solutions that people had put together really quickly and just creating mock-ups of and saying here's how we're going to solve the problem of social distancing and the idea is that you know these firms aren't really working at this point, so they're just kind of churning out this material to get PR and possible clients once Covid nineteen settles down. Quite an interesting thing to discuss because it sort of like a set of designers who never go past the first idea that they put down on paper, which as an educator myself as I always say, your first idea is your worst idea, so you really have to go through this process of developing ideas and thinking of the context, in which the project lives and so I think that this is the problem with Corrina Griffin is what's happening is everyone someone just has an idea that POPs in their head doesn't really consider anything puts together this small, a little render, and then pushes it through one of these websites. Just also made me think of this obsession. Designers with creating new things rather than looking APP. What is currently in place? Some of the examples you had like a Batman Shields. It was just kind of unreal that this is something that people are actually thinking about so that's why I thought this was quite interesting as topic to touch on definitely, and we've seen it from the unfortunate part destruction of Nacho Dom, the first thing that designers did there was a great show of solidarity and kind of the second thing that people did was put a slightly Foley on top of it with their studio name attached, and and we did all ben suffer the renderings. renderings and the hundreds of rendering about how they might deal with this project, and you're.

"The circle of cars and trucks surrounding are seeing the crowd of officers. That were near the body disperse. Until it's just Lindsey myself and the officer that brought us back to the body. Everyone just vanished. It's eerily quiet now. I've been a little too busy slipping on my heavy duty blue surgical gloves to take a look at the body. Well that's not entirely true. I haven't taken a look at the body because I'm terrified of what I was about to see. I'm thirteen. I don't have any experience with genital mutilation so I'm not sure how I'll respond seeing it up close. It doesn't really sound like my cup of tea. I hope I don't faint when I get up. Close I've fallen blood once my gloves. Her on the stretcher has been lowered. Lindsey grabs disaster pouch and we walked closer to the body. She throws me a small water. Plastic out of pocket and says put these on their shoe coverings. Lindsey watches me. Slip THEM OVER MY LEATHER SOLED Steve Madden Lace Up. Cap Does and tells me you don't want to get anything on your shoes and take it home with you. Your dog will lick the blood off the souls. What Yak given the amount of blood leaking out of this man's body on the pavement? I'm glad she brought these. I don't want my dog lapping up. This guy's blood off my shoes. Carter's a good way. He wouldn't mess with them. I think seeing all the blood around the body I think to myself. How are they going to clean this up? Surely they can't just leave it here once we take the body right. I'm standing over the body with Lindsey. Now our feet covered in plastic or both in his blood. There's a faint chemical smell coming off the blood or the body. Although it's barely cutting through the smell of the cheeseburgers which smells less appetizing. The closer I get to the body. This is my first look at our foreign exchange student friend and the site just about knocked me out. I exhale sharply. Lindsey looks at me concerned I take in my surroundings about six feet away from me as a medium sized black man with designer wool pants pulled around his ankles. Laying near a storm sewer on the side of Lake Street. Shoes are still on. That's creepy do you suppose. He was dead when his pants were slid off. There's so much blood on his body and on the ground it's difficult to tell what happened. Clearly there giant stab wounds and slices all over his body. The man's navy polo shirt had so many holes in it. It's impressive stayed on while his body was being pushed out of the car. I look at the man's right hand and see stab wounds on his palms and slices on his fingers. Did he try and grab the knife? When do you suppose he gave up? Fighting was it before or after his pants were off inevitably. My eyes are drawn to the man's paint us or what I think it's being penis again. There is so much blood. It's hard to make out details. But his pianist definitely had deep slices an and was barely recognizable as a human penis. Lindsey must have seen me staring in horror trying not to imagine what it would be like to have. My penis repeatedly sliced by a random stranger. She tells me to grab the man's feet. This was nice of her. Normally veteran funeral directors. Make the new guy do the heavy lifting but Lindsay Catella was having difficulty processing the situation. So she did me a solid and took the heavier bloodier end. Lindsey opens the Disaster Pouch and places in next to the body she grabs the shoulders starts moving the body and finally get a look at the man's face for the first time my mouth must have hit the ground. I've never seen anything like this before. Sure at someone's face but aside from a Barau line nose and mouth. This man's face had more in common with the deflated basketball covered in broken teeth and ground. Meat this man had the thickest black is coagulated blood coming out of his eyes mouth and however many stab wounds were in his face and head. You heard me right. This guy must have had a dozen stab wounds to his head. It's weird you don't ever see that in movies. Everyone gets stabbed in the body but in the real world I can assure you there are apparently no MPA guidelines for knife-wielding killers had stabbings. Are Real thing the overpowering smell of hot and fresh cheeseburgers mixed with the site of this man's brutalized face? Made me wish I was at the beach with a Mandawa right now in made me wish I was anywhere or maybe I'm just hungry for a cheeseburger. Edano no one Lindsay says all right. Let's move him. I grabbed the man's ankles. His lower legs and feet are in perfect non stabbed condition. The Sky could be shorts model if you to do well if he wasn't dead. It's kind of weird that his lower legs weren't touched at all right. The person who did this was pretty thorough. So I'm surprised. He didn't shoot for full body coverage maybe he did. And I just can't tell we put the body in the bag and ZIP it up as we're moving the body to the stretcher. I see a firefighter in full uniform. Connecting a fire hose to a hydrant Lindsey points at them and says they can write a hose. This place down. Oh so that's what they do with all that blood we load our body into the back of the van. Get in and buckle ourselves up for our trip back to the funeral home. Wow it's only nine thirty Lindsay. Says she points across the street and says hot and fresh meals pretty good. You WanNa take our buddy to get a burger. She laughs secretly. I'm disappointed that she wasn't serious. I could really go for a burger. We found out later that weekend that our foreign exchange student was actually stabbed seventy seven times. The entire left side of his face was crushed by a weapon or instrument of some sort and to top it off. The tip of his penis was cut off. And his scrotum was crudely ripped open by a serrated blade and it was all done by a complete stranger as far as. I know they never found the person who did it. They're probably still driving around in that ninety six. Lancer. It's Labor Day night. I'm getting ready for bed. I'm brushing my teeth and thinking about my presentation tomorrow. I can't talk about this murder. I want to. But it's not really. Pg I'd get enough for sure or Mrs Jones. May actually snap and staff may seventy eight times for telling my classmates about my weird encounter with a dead foreign exchange student right by the hot and fresh this weekend. I don't know what to do. It's Tuesday morning. I was awake six minutes before my mom came in and woke me Of being completely unsure of what I was going to present my class in eight period had me tightly wound from the jump so when my mom came in and open my blinds I was a little less than pleasant my stomach was in Nazi? Entire ride to school. What can I talk about movies? I saw or music. I listened to over the summer that fun trip. I took to the amusement park. How about genital mutilation just kidding? That wouldn't go over. Mrs Jones already hates me because of my awfulness last year so I need to think fast. Otherwise I'm going to be completely fucked for the next one hundred and eighty days until high school since I can't tell the story from this weekend. Maybe I'll just talk about what it's like working at the funeral home. Yeah like day to day. That's interesting right now. It's boring. I walked into the cafeteria just after six period feeling completely sick walking up to the lunch line I always usually pretty excited for launch because like I mentioned before we always carry out since we're a small Catholic middle school. There isn't really enough funding for anything. Not to mention whatever money it would take to properly staff maintain a cafeteria kitchen so essentially we get baths food. Every day as I get closer to the front of the line where the parent volunteers handing out lunch. I get a waft of whatever it is. They're passing out. It's of familiar delicious. Smell I feel my saliva. Glands activate tangle and then the foreign exchange students crushed Izhak at pops into my head for a moment at breath classmates standing in front of me turns us. We're both inching our way forward in line and ask. What are you giving your presentation on before I can even open my mouth? She says my family and I went to the billboard mansion over the summer you know the place where they filmed richie rich sliding forward barely listening. I think to myself I'm fucked. I don't know I sternly say to my classmate abruptly ending her blabbering stupid fucking rich mansion. I get.

"Can assist on death calls quite promotion. Also the fact that I'm thirteen and built like an adult man probably helps having said all that I haven't done anything interesting enough this summer to give a presentation on accepts e to dead old women in their beds and feel up Amanda Wyatt during Star Wars. Unfortunately Mrs Jones and I have a tumultuous relationship. She kicked me out a class eleven times last year. For General Disruptive Nece so I doubt she would be amused by either of my potential presentation ideas. Mrs Jones already told us on Friday that our presentations need to be appropriate. And that if I talk about the funeral home my have to keep it. Pg PG means no graphic detail Allah no dead bodies so PG means boring. I WanNa be the intercom interrupts. My thought it's Lindsay. She says grant. We're leaving meet me out back. We're taking the van the intercom clicks off Lindsay and. I are on our way to Saint Paul's in the fan. It's a perfect day. The windows are down. I like riding with Lindsay. She has fun stories. Some funeral related. Some not Lindsay's Slim twenty-seven-year-old Blonde who's clearly a reformed hippie turned born again regular person. She's playing but in a pretty way. Before Lindsay was a funeral director. She followed the ban fish around the country selling peanut butter sandwiches and loose cigarettes to hippies. Huffing nitrous I think it goes without saying that Lindsay and I hit it off. Every ride with Lindsay was a new story on today's ride to Saint Paul's she was telling me about an eight hour acid trip. She had on a road trip through. Colorado. She's in the middle of telling me how card broken down wall her and a roommate are tripping hard like floor is lava type shit and they have no other choice but the hitchhike into town through the mountains. Oh my God. I'm practically salivating. This stories. Amazing her phone rings damaged she answers. Hello Ohio right yeah. We've got a stretcher made up we're on our way. Lindsay hangs up. Well that was. Your Dad. Looks like we're going on a police call. I look at Lindsay perplexed. A police call. My Dad said I could do that. What about the service I ask? We're fine calls right down the street. I think it's a bike accident. Those are always interesting. Lindsay pops a piece of nicotine gum in her mouth. My ears perked up. I need something interesting for Mrs Jones Class. This might be. I could probably tell a story about a guy getting hit by a car on a bicycle without Mrs Jones. Stopping me for being inappropriate. Yeah perfect just interesting enough but not too gory. For an eighth grade class. A wave of relief washes over me when I imagined myself giving the most riveting speech in class until Lindsey starts telling me about the first bike accident she worked. Cut The fuckers clean off. She laughed okay so clearly. If I'm going to present anything like this I have to be a little bit more delicate than Lindsey's being right now. I really can't start the year off with an and trip to the principal's office. We turn the corner now. We're on Lake Street heading towards third. All I can see is a sea of police and fire truck lights. There must have been seven cop cars and two firetrucks well one and a half they have. The fire Marshall's F. Three fifty out alongside one of the big engines today. They're blocking off. The crime scene with their vehicles. Lindsay says under breath. If it's a bike accident why do they need a fire truck blocking lookie? Loos trying to sneak peek. Seems like it would be a little more cost effective for the city to bring a sheet to cover the body rather than a three hundred fifty thousand dollar fire truck at the moment. Lindsey and I are both trying to figure out what we're in for the brakes on the vans squeak as we slow to a stop about ten meters from the barricade of cars in this neighborhood. It's probably on a bike. He might be your grant. Lindsay says putting the car in Park and making sure to make direct eye contact with me. Just try not to freak out and tell me if it's too much okay. All right I say knowing full well. Lindsey could sense how nervous I was. I think she's being sweet right now or she's like the legit worried. This is GonNa Fuck my brain up. Probably kid and even thought of that. What if it's somebody? I know my heart starts to speed up as I think about. All of my neighborhood friends with bicycles heads exploding through windshield simultaneously. Then I imagine my own head and body being crushed by a pickup truck after being mowed over on my burnt or Ange track. Bmx bike. What sound is a human head? Make when it's crushed by a truck tire Lindsey and I get out and pull the stretcher out of the back of the van for a moment. I'm distracted by the smell of grilled cheese. Bergers coming from the drive through restaurant across the street hot and fresh. Even though it's just after nine am I find myself craving hot and cheeseburger. Would it be weird to ask Lindsey to pop through the drive through with a dead body? That seems like it would be professionally frowned upon. I better not ask. Plus I remember seeing hot and fresh on our schools lunch menu this week. We only have delivery. It's weird and expensive but I think I can wait a couple of days for a burger and I walked toward to friendly police officers leaning against one of the barrier cars. It's lights on. It's an older Crown Vic. Fresh paint job though must have been wrecked in recycled. We were interrupting what sounded like the officers discussing Labor Day weekend plans. I can't be sure though. I just heard words like hot dog and Lake and made an assumption you to with the funeral home. One of the officers asked Lindsay says. Yeah Yasser points to me and says Jesus Christ what is he fifteen. Lindsey smiles and responds thirteen. He's the owner son getting broke into the business. Well he's in for a doozy the officer chuckles. What am I and for a doozy? You Know My dad's sent me here. He knows what it is. He wouldn't send me if he didn't think I could handle it. And as nervous as I am. A part of me is overflowing with excitement. I pulled weeds and clean light fixtures all summer. Hoping something like this would happen. It might be a little tacky to say out loud but I'm ready to see something see on TV. Lindsay says to the officers. We're not really sure what's going on here. We got a call. Come out. I smile and nod Lindsey with confidence letting her know that I'm not GonNa let her down however awful. This by accident is the author starts describing the crime scene. Well we've got a twenty two year old dead foreign exchange student thank. It's not one of my friends or a kid. Jesus never build a bike again. The officer breaks my train of thought with a sense. I wasn't planning on hearing that day or any other day for that matter. We think are victim has been stabbed about ninety times all over his body. No one's on. Its back though. The left side of his face is completely caved in and to top it off. His pants were pulled down. And his genitals were mutilated. Holy Shit thought. This was a bike accident. The officer continues with his information. Someone said they saw him fall out of a black. Nineteen ninety-six Mitsubishi Lancer or a car of a similar make Lindsey Chimes then so they stabbed him and bludgeoned him in the car and then pushed him out. It appears so the author walks between two of the barrier police cars and waves as forward to follow him with the stretcher. I was excited before. But I'm afraid to see what's on the other side of the police car barrier after the officers description but the smell of hot and fresh keeps wafting into my nostrils and takes my mind off what I'm about to do and what I'm about to see Lindsey and I finally see what's on the other side of the police cars. The first thing I noticed was the amount of police officers that we couldn't see from the other side of the makeshift car perimeter. There must have been seven or eight uniformed officers and three or four detectives and slacks and Blazers huddled around a body surrounded by a pool of blood. A very large pool of the deepest prettiest read you can imagine. The color of the blood is such a striking shade especially next to the gray pavement and grass on the curb as the officers scatter upon our arrival. We see the dead body. There's no sheet no covering Lindsey whispers to me. They must have just finished investigating. They haven't even covered the body out. Shrug my shoulders. I wouldn't know either way as we wheel the stretchered deeper into.

"I can hear the rest of the staff hustling upstairs. Moving flower arrangements from our chapel where Mr waters visitation was to the garage to be loaded in the hearse in taking the same Paul's with the body by nine. Am It's right down. The street were only slightly rushed this morning. Mr Waters ran out of prayer cards last night twice so I was sent to the basement of print. More this is partially because I'm much faster. Printing prayer cards than any of the other employees and partially because it keeps the possibilities of a thirteen year. Old fucking everything up to a minimum prayer cards a lot. Easier to fix than a five thousand dollar smashed earn with a bag of human remains inside. Trust me I know pre card. Preparation is in difficult.

He's the only one of the employees that isn't allowed near the printer after the unfortunate but hilarious Fuchs incident earlier this summer. It was an easy mistake to make any of us could have done it. The H K keys are pretty close on the keyboard but ned should have proof-read before printing one hundred memorial folders for Elaine box. I thought it was hilarious. My Dad on the other hand wasn't his tickled. I'm about three quarters of the way. Through the new batch of one hundred prayer cards I printed full RIP STACK. Just the sort of thing. I imagine myself doing Saturday morning. Labor Day weekend. My girlfriend Amanda Wyatt of year old freshman at southside. High School is on our way to the dunes with her family. I couldn't go because of the water service. Apparently the family asked about me by name so my thought it would be a good idea to have my familiar and friendly face around to help. Ease the waters grief. Thanks for fucking on my Labor Day weekend plans with Amanda Wyatt. Mr Waters. Fun Fact. About Amanda Wyatt. She let me put my hand up her shirt in the back row of Tuesday night screening of Star Wars. The Phantom menace critically. I wasn't crazy about the film but the overall movie going experience that evening was exceptional thinking about the phantom menace. Reminded me of something important. I have to give a presentation for Mrs Jones. Class Tuesday eighth period about the most interesting thing. I did this summer and can't be inappropriate. I nothing I spent a whole summer at the funeral home performing menial and mostly unimportant tasks the shuffling continues above me as I fold the last sheet a prayer cards when you're thirteen and working at a funeral home. You're not as much useful as you are handy. You can do a lot of work day to day without making any real impact. Most of my tasks are trivial cleaning typing and printing memorials pulling weeds and other forms of manual labor carefully. I'll have to clean a gross bodily fluid up or all. Hang out in the operating room. Assist Lindsey or Ned while they embalm all very interesting stuff. But I think Mrs Jones wouldn't be too happy with me describing the body's natural purging process. Where any and all available holes on your body start leaking fluids of varying colors and consistencies. Anyway you're probably asking yourself why I started working at a funeral home at thirteen. There are a number of reasons but I think my parents didn't want me wasting all my time watching horror movies and jerking off in my bedroom all summer. Don't get me wrong. It's a banner year for both of those things but I also found time to have a part time job. It's actually quite rewarding basically. I'm a strong kid. And my dad likes having me around the office. It's nice to have cheap hand. Plus I think he kind of likes the fact that I've taken an interest in the family business at thirteen. I think it's safe to say I'm more interested in twelve dollars an hour then preserving the legacy of my family's funeral home I mean I'm committed to excellence preserving the dignity of the dead and all that but twelve bucks come on sure. Beat paper out plus. My Dad is finally letting me go on calls well too so far. I don't think he thought I was ready for it. He wouldn't let me the first month or so but when the funeral home was short staffed in July and we got a call during a church service I was quickly promoted from lowly gopher to lowly gopher who.
