"Networks Reagan Smith, public affairs, director of the Florida news network. I'm executive producer, Michael Yaffe, Michael always a pleasure to be with you and lots of different things today. We're gonna talk about Wilbur and Orville Wright, right? Brothers wrong story. Yep. You heard me, right. That's right. We'll find out all about that. And then we're going to take a few minutes and jump over to Saint Petersburg in Clearwater, where the Saint Pete Clearwater beach have been voted the number one tourist destination. As far as the beaches are concerned, the interesting thing, especially this time of year. But I wanted to take a look here. There's been an awful lot of talk here about national emergency and building a wall. It's gonna happen. Well, no, it's not gonna happen. And you know. We we will see here. This is this is a president who has become very unpredictable, and as in unpredictable, I came to mind, I thought back crossed the years before Trump. There was a guy named Harry Truman. And there was a big national brouhaha over declaring a national emergency during the Korean war when Harry Truman was the president. We're in the midst of this war nineteen fifty two and. The steel industry is very important to the war effort. There's a price freeze on steelworkers talking about going on strike and president Truman is saying. You can't do that. We're in a war, and it would make a national emergency if fuel plants closed down, right? We're going to fight this war. So what Harry Truman do he declared national emergency and started the government process of taking over all the privately owned and operated steel mills and the United States well that didn't play real, well, especially with his labor, allies and labor was a big supporter of a got hurriedly into the courts and made his way to the United States Supreme court as amongst the fastest cases in our history. And by the time Truman was president Roosevelt been in office along all. Court members had been appointed by democratic presidents and the court voted six to three to overturn risky Truman's declaration of a national emergency. Among them, Alabama's Hugo black one of the most liberal people ever to sit on the court. And that's that's quite a smack down for a democrat president by judges that were all appointed by Democrats, but Hugo black firmly thereafter had a party, and you don't hear this happening today invited president Truman to his house party. Really? Yes. And I definitely doesn't happen today. Mr. Truman told you go black that he served great bourbon. All right. But in any event it didn't work for him. Well, sometimes it has worked Richard Nixon nineteen seventy wildcat postal strike missing Nixon, declares a national emergency. And he deploys the national guard to deliver the mail. Well, you can see that you can do that. Iran. Nineteen thousand nine hundred seventy Jimmy Carter's the president did, you know Carter declared a national emergency that is still in effect in order to place economic sanctions on Iran, while the longtime at the time, it might have seemed like it was really the right thing to do. Here we are forty plus years later, and you're saying a national emergency still in effect for economic sanctions on Iran. Well, George W Bush declared one against Zimbabwe and Barack Obama against Syria, and there are thirty others. Some people think it's been overused. Yeah. So I mean, we'll we'll really see how this is going to play out. But anyways, there's a little history of the use of national emergencies for you. And it is time for us to take a little bit of a pause along the network line here already I got on my soapbox. Sorry about that. But we're going to be joined by William Hazel grove, and the story of Wilbur and Orville Wright will remind you that this is the Florida roundtable, the service Florida's talk and entertainment networks I- Reagan Smith, Michael at our conversations will continue in a moment for families facing the challenge of a loved one with an opioid use disorder.

"Gift big announcement from a Lincoln continental. We'll have the president of Lincoln joy a lotta co on in just a couple of minutes at seven sixteen. It's big news, Richard. I think you'll enjoy it as well. All right. Meanwhile, we mentioned earlier on this day in history on December seventeenth nineteen three hundred and fifteen years ago, Wilbur and Orville Wright, Dayton, Ohio conducted the first successful manned powered airplane flight near Kitty Hawk North Carolina using their experimental craft. The Wright flyer all to be remembered if the Henry Ford to greenfield village now that that little plane was in the air, twelve seconds and traveled one hundred twenty feet, and that was a big deal and that was fifteen years ago today this weekend Friday. Coincidentally. There was an experimental flying car aircraft that crashed during a test run at willow run airport, injuring the pilot prompting an investigation, apparently the owner of the hybrid vehicle was performing a high speed taxi test. When accidents went airborne and crashed. So one hundred fifteen years later, we can't keep the vehicles on the ground when they were trying so hard to get them into the air. This one wasn't even supposed to go into the air. And it did have you heard anything more about that crash at willow run in the condition of the pilot or anything Richard because I have not no. But you know, he could've taken an airplane. Richard, Richard, Richard. This is like this. He's like the Wright brothers only in an opposite kind of way. He's trying to get a car to fly 'cause we've talked about. Highway. Yeah. Well, anyway, I hope that that person is okay. Don't have any details. Other than. He was in stable condition alert and aware when the paramedics took him to the hospital, obviously the Federal Aviation administration's investigating the incident. So these guys had this dream of he's I guess he's experimented with a lot of things. He liked flying lawnmower. Yeah. Only it wasn't supposed to fly. He was testing it for something. I don't know on the ground, and it had other ideas in that. No one had to be more surprised than the pilot. When he realized that his car was flying even before he was ready for it to fly. I mean, I guess that's it. Anyway, I guess we have to have dreamers gesture. We do have to have dreamers like like a hundred and fifteen years ago today, Wilbur and Orville Wright, we're dreamers, and where would we be without their dreams? Stuck on the ground and taking a lot longer.

"One we've answered questions before answers were I know what mine is because it's my my dream build that you know someday when I'm in my eighties, probably build it and it's six feet, Canard airplane, composite material. So either like a fiberglass or kevlar reinforced system so that the the whole plane, it's basically set up the tail is in front as opposed to be in the back. It's a far more efficient plane setup and it'd be fun to actually design prototype and build my own before. That's big dream build that James Orville Wright. Lame, loyal loyal. Okay. That's a good middle name. God, I don't know. Like that's really hard. I feel like my interests change every two weeks on something different. I think it would be really cool to design like, I don't know. Like I think it'd be really cool to do a whole, not just one thing, but like a cohesive space like Annika, it'd be really cool to design like, you know, like a like a whole entire bar or like an entire hotel lobby or like some some space in design. You know the the layout in the furniture and the, you know, and build all of it. I think that would be, you know something along those lines where it's not just one thing. It's kind of this whole cohesive project. You know, I think that would be that would be a lot of fun. Probably be ridiculously stressful, but it's one of those projects, you know, learn a ton and and just really get a go to town in a whole bunch of different. You know, realms. So I guess, I guess mine. And would kind of be along the same line with with his act, but I'm kind of doing it already, but so it's like, you know, you take the things like, you know, I built our house from the ground up, you know, that was obviously a giant project, but it wasn't the first house that I built. So you know, staring down from a pilot to finish house Legos a ton of work now filling with, you know, furniture that I making everything in the house, you know, except for the couches basically made, and I'm kind of doing that with the pool house building right now. So as I'm building this, this thing I'm gonna fill it with, you know, own a big custom bar tops and fill it with custom furniture, things that I wanna make for myself instead of other people. So I guess that kind of cohesive space is, you know, Lakewood Zach was talking about, it's not a hotel lobby or bar that's public. Buddy, but that and then build a tar to put in that building, fill the one Bill, the guitar, acoustic guitar. Oh, yeah. Just like we're talking about Tommy last week I want to. So when we move which is coming up, keeps getting closer. Thank God probably about eight eight months or so as is what are looking looking like to up to like the Billingham area, but we're still looking at. I want to throw all of our furniture away that we own here and start over and build everything myself. I wanna build all of our, you know, couches, and chairs and tables. I think that'd be a cool content series on channel two, just like literally starting from plastic goodwill tables because you know, we're not going to be, you You know. know, it's all I'm going to do like like the channel be really, really cool. So I'm kind of excited about that. That would be cool and it's a good motivator to like, you know, if you have the plastic goodwill table just to Steph, it's like not. It's offensive to look at..
