"The mason minute. With Kevin mason for some reason here in Nashville, we have a lot of tiny spiders, and they can live anywhere from outside inside to on my automobile. I've got a teeny tiny spider that lives inside my rearview mirror on the left hand side of my car, the driver's mirror, and I'll go in and sweep out the spiderweb every couple of days when I go driving, and I park the car, come back in the next day, another small spider web going from the window or from the car body to the actual side view mirror. Now what's interesting is this has been going on all summer long. And I've driven to Indiana a couple of times. I've been through Kentucky a couple of times, and the spider, if it's the same one, keeps on living. I don't know much about tiny spiders and how long their life expectancy is. But at least one or maybe a bunch of baby spiders live inside the rearview mirror housing on the side of my car. I'm impressed by their ingenuity. The fact that they've been able to survive so long kind of funny how they find their place and live and go through their life trying to trap things to be able to survive in their little spider webs and no matter how big and mean I am. I come swipe them away. They just start back from scratch all over again and keep on living.

"This week. A conversation between tracy hunt and david troyer about how to make america's best idea better. I'm julie longoria. This is the experiment. A show about our unfinished country. David grew up on the leech. Lake reservation in northern minnesota. It's near what they call the mississippi headwaters region and it's about one hundred miles from the border with canada. The border lakes are basically how we travel and have traveled for centuries for generations. Native people would use these waters to visit each other and trade among different villages. It's basically a highway a watery highway and when he was growing up a new national park called voyagers was opening up right near there. Basically the part was plopped down in our yard. And david says that's the way a lot of national parks were created all throughout history. You know i think. Many americans imagine these national parks are made out of these. Untouched pristine natural landscapes. That's not true. People were living there. I like glacier. National park was established. Exactly a black homelands and the black feet reservation. Boundary was pushed off of what became glacier so they took the land directly away from black. Beat the black. People weren't allowed to hunt or fish or trap or harvest timber or worship within the confines of glacier the parks were set up in such a way as to deprive native people of our homelands and our treaty rights. The parks were just another way of taking. At least from native people.

"Talk about fire science, though because fire science has dramatically changed since one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty nine, and this is GonNa, come into play when we talk about where her case is currently okay so mostly it was just on the job training during the time of Joannes case in other words, there wasn't really a specific training or a specific certification to be an arson investigator. Okay in one thousand. Thousand Nine hundred eighty to the National Fire Protection Association, they actually did publish guidelines, and they started introducing scientific methods for investigating arson cases, and at this time people started recognizing that there were widely believed myths that surrounded fire science cases, so we see in the early nineties, which right around the time where Joann was convicted, people are just starting to see. Maybe this isn't such a strong science. So, I don't know if you know the name John Lentini, but he is the most well-known fire scientist, and he is the one who led the way for a lot of reforms. Actually now works at the forensic fire analysis. Institute and the reason why I bring him up is because he led an arson review panel in two thousand and eleven that was put together to review the evidence reports and testimony in the parks case, so you have John Lentini again who is? The leader of the Berry Sheck of fire science exactly so he had. This whole panel gets put together him in the panel conclude that the fire in parks home was not an arson. They found that forensic evidence used during the original investigation was invalid, and that the fire investigators who analyzed the case simply did not have a proper understanding of really the behavior of fires at that time I'm sure they increase the educational standards going forward as well and you know they talk about this new evidence shows that. That the investigators Joanne's case really base their investigation on what are now debunked arson myths so in other words. This conviction is tainted because we didn't know then what we know now it was also riddled with biased and unscientific methods. The panel's report also documents how the theories of the police investigators such as the theory that the fire had multiple points of origin was incorrect. Oh, they actually concluded that the fire spread from a single origin in the locker room, and then quote unquote jumped into the children's bedroom. It only appear to the untrained eye that there were two points of origin. In addition. The autopsy of the victims showed that the children had fatally high carbon monoxide levels in their lungs, which means what it means that had there been a fire in the bedroom meaning. If there had been two points of origin, the children would not have survived long enough for carbon monoxide to accumulate got it. So this aspect of carbon monoxide poisoning was not understood at the time of parks, trial and most research about carbon monoxide production during fire, and its effect on victims didn't occur until after the parks trial, the panel also looked at the fire patterns on the closet door again that closet door where Ronnie was found contrary to the conclusions of the initial investigators. This panel determined. Determined that the door was actually not even close at the time of the fire, and definitely not locked. They suggest that the child likely took refuge from the fire in the closet. He was scared he was he was trying to protect himself exactly what I would have thought. Ultimately, the panel concluded that by modern standards. None of this evidence withstand in a courtroom today..

"The other morning I did something sort of radical but it was weird. Because it's something I used to do like five times a week. I woke up at seven. Am Donald a bike and wisdom across Washington. Dc wasn't going into the office. That's still forbidden. I was going to a park. It's still forbidden to fully use a Lotta parks in Washington. Dc tennis courts. Basketball courts playgrounds are out but Montrose Park in. Georgetown was wide open so I went there to meet a person. Remember how we used to meet people Haza Way and I am director of the garden and Landscape Studies Program. At Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and collection. I met ties to talk about reopening parks because parks are kind of her life. It feels like there's this movement right now pushing people to reopen parks. And that's what we're interested in is is. Why is there this movement? And why were these parks? Shut down to begin with and was that a mistake so I I'll start by saying. I think it was a mistake although I sympathize and empathize with the reasons and the reasons to me have really to do with completing two different issues. And and you'll see quickly why they're easy to conflate. The one is human behavior people behaving in parks and yes it is true. Not Everybody is always adhering to the six feet not everybody was always adhering to the less than ten people less than six people. Whatever your local. And then there is what a public parks do and how they function And unfortunately chose when people weren't always behaving well to close the whole park and and I use that as equivalent to if we looked at streets and we set up. There was a driver who didn't obey the rules. We're going to close all the streets. We wouldn't we would pull that driver aside and if it was bad infraction we'd give a ticket or or we socially say that's not okay so to close parks because some people aren't behaving in the way that we want seems counterproductive And then I'd say it's also a mistake because in fact closing the parks does not help people who don't follow the rules. Follow the rules. All you're doing is pushing it underground or pushing it away or shaming actually helping the public to understand why these rules and the CDC guidelines are so incredibly important. So I'd argue. Open the parks. If you see too many crowds then think about how you can expand the space not howdy. Close it down. I guess it might seem obvious to some. But why are parks of necessary? Wise it dangerous to push people out of parks parks are really a response to public health and what it means to have a healthy city and you could go back to parties. You know way way ancient history and talk about the realization that the environment impacts your health. Having fresh air having son ventilation all of that really matters. Were very fortunate today. In the twenty first century is in the nineteenth century. We began as city's got very dense and we had paid less and less attention to the health of cities with industrialism. We realized by the middle of the nineteenth century cities were not healthy places. They were places of pollution and sewage issues. You know human sewage mixed with your drinking water not a good Combo which we know today. And we realize that lead to things like the cholera outbreaks and led to typhoid and led to all sorts of pandemics and epidemics earlier so we started to create parts as a way both to make cities healthy on a day-to-day basis. Which meant that people could come out and get fresh air and get that ventilation get some that they needed but we also begin to realize that physical exercise getting out and walking biking Hula hooping. Whatever it is that people did that they got outside and and did that and it was important increasingly dense cities we also began to realize is socially and and Frederick Law olmsted. One of our earliest landscape architects is a profession. Talks about this. It's important to democracy because public parks are the places where lots of people walk can talk and intersect and I don't know where that woman comes from and what. Her background is an intersect with her. If I cross on a path if we're both walking our dogs So public parks are important for physical health mental health. The important for democracy. They really make our cities that livable places in the safe and healthy places so to me to take the healthy heart out of a sick body seems counterproductive and yet cities and states across the country. Did that right and they did do it and again. I want to be a little sympathetic. They did it for two reasons. One is they were face with. How do you police it? So if people aren't behaving properly what do you do? We're GONNA give tickets to sorry you were four and a half feet apart. You know. That's a ten dollar fine. That seems a little absurd him was going to has all sorts of issues with it right. She's in New York where certain people are being policed more than others. Black people that xactly. There's also the issue in this certainly was issue a problem with the National Park Service and other places the staff. How do you protect our staff? How do you make sure that the park service the people who have to work in parks who are working on the parks building constructing taking care of it are safe was part of the issue that you know that states and cities had never dealt with something like this before well they've dealt with it Nine hundred eighteen flu is probably our most recent big memory. Many cities putting in large part systems at that point. They were actually realizing not only. Did you need individual parks and neighborhoods? But you need a connected parks. You start to see networks of parks go in more and more so the cities were realizing what you needed. Essentially what I would call the urban landscape web that sustains the city as a whole and we so often think of cities as the skyscrapers the skyline. But actually it's the ground on which we walk right and how we get between places so they would looking things like street trees. They were looking at small parks. Big Parks Park networks boulevards and the idea was social behavior. You had to wear masks radio a lot of people reprinted those those images of of you have to wear masks. You're supposed to stay you know far apart from each other. Clean your hands. They were putting in facilities for people to do that. They were actually putting in things. Like public bathrooms so that people could wash their hands which is another piece that. I would love to see more parks. Do you look around this park They'll place to wash your hands. You know if if you sat at a table and then wanted to wash your hands right now mostly looks like a place where dogs go to the BACHELORETTE's exactly. We have to take a little break boat.

"Cactus the mesas of Monument Valley are quintessentially the southwest right. John Borden Sean. A lot of his movies in fact Play Circle John Ford Point. Also a narrow part so they've taken the resources that they they have. I in the land that they have an through using it for tourism parks so right before we wrap up any other parks that are not national parks that you WANNA give an onto state parks or I really can't think of any state parks. I wasn't really paying attention to it. Although I'm sure there are I know. Extensions like there's a national monument that's an extension of the Grand Canyon but it's not a national park service site under the Bureau of Land Management. Okay but it is a national monument. That's that's the weird thing about national monuments. Most national monuments are part of the park system. But not all national monuments. Some are run by the ear of land management. Some are run by the four service and I think a few even by the fish and Wildlife Service okay because there is vermillion cliffs National Monument which is managed by B. M. and it's in between the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and pagers. We talked about with the with Antelope Canyon a right along the Colorado River. Just north of it a very beautiful sight but very basic. It's much more event. Outdoor off back country kind of thing in their for instance. There are places like the wave in some well known spots there that you need a backcountry permit to get to and they'd really don't recommend that you go there if you don't have backcountry experience but even just driving by the cliffs or were rafting down the Colorado River by the cliffs of vermillion cliffs. Nash Ammonia is beautiful place. I know it's Grand Canyon Parachute National Monument. Oh Cayenne usually called parachute national monument. But it's not a park service site and know if I was secretary of the Interior for like a week I think my my top priority would be reorganizing a lot of this stuff so it makes more sense and I would move the forest service out of the Department of Agriculture which a lot of people do not realize that it's part of the Department of areas not the interior and moving into the Department of cheerier and try to create some sort of order. With how all. This federal land is divided in organized. Well I mean the reason it's Department of Agriculture is we use those trees as an agricultural renewable resource is the reason it ended up in there as I understand it was original Lawrence politics or something today. A lot of the national forests are they could still do logging and stuff like that honor. In those places I mean they have different classifications for the National Park Service and the Bureau of Land Management is in the Department of the Interior. And so there's different land usage requirements for different types of Federal Lance. Oh I don't think that's excellent as we go to wrap this up. You're standing in the prettiest spot in Arizona National Park of any stripe weary standing. But he looking at the rim of the Grand Canyon. Or or I should say you are probably overlooking Horseshoe Bend. Oh come in when climbing national recreation area. I think that particular site of the band is pretty great. Whereas there's lots of sites along the Grand Canyon I haven't been to horseshoe bend in. Several years has changed there. Were No guardrails. Yeah nothing. Most people didn't even know about the gravel road at the parks. I'm kind of curious. It's like no has changed dramatically. There is a parking lot where you pay for parking a paved path up large crowds. It's instagram that has turned this into a very popular spot. But it is a it is a beautiful spot. I would say early in the day instead of late in the day. I found that late in the day I was shooting into the sun and so would have been better if the sun had been behind me earlier in the day But beautiful spot. It's it's really kind of one picture So whether it's worth a parking you're in the middle of nowhere you're out there. I would do it but I wouldn't say that it's more than just the one picture I would also say. Cheer how a National Monument the road all the way up. It's kind of a winding road. That goes up a mountain and then once you get to the very top. That's when you can kind of really see all of the stone spires. They're kind of like. Hutus are official called. Who does but it's kind of basically the same thing that that's really a fantastic view and there's one particular view and Daiva Trumpet on my website. Where you look out into this opening into this greater valley in the distance and you have all these rock pillars that are there. That's another great one too well and as I will do every time that Gary comes on the show I would recommend his website. Nachos for reading about things but for his wonderful photography for which he has won numerous awards in one thing that makes you laugh and say only in Arizona National Parks besides the buried National Park. Because that's that's clearly the first answer. That question prompted petrified forest. I I know there are other places in the world that have petrified wood. But you're just not gonna see it so easily exposed like you're going to in petrified forest national park and in fact. I think it's on the tentative list for the United States to become a world heritage site only for when that will ever happen but significant engine unique enough that place on that list excellent where guest again has been Gary Art and Gary. I'm assuming where I should send people in terms of your site. Is this wonderful page that you have that. I've been looking at this entire time. Which may be the only Lincoln this episode?

"The bags bags on a roll on thirty read. It's real good passport. Own Amateur Traveler episode seven hundred today. The amateur traveler talks about Spanish explorers native Americans a volcano crater cactus and canyons of various sizes. One really really grand and one really really small as we go to the National Parks of Arizona. Welcome to the immature traveler. I'm your host Chris. Kristen sending this is indeed episodes. Seven hundred of the amateur traveler as we approach the fifteenth year anniversary. So let's celebrate a and now let's get back to work. Let's talk about Arizona. I like to welcome back to the show. Gary Aren't from everything. Dash EVERYWHERE DOT com. Who's come to talk to us? About Arizona? National Parks Carry. Welcome back to the show. Thank you for the. What is it? Fifteen or sixteen. So it's not like it's been that long since I've talked to Gary Gary and I also have been a CO hosting this. We can travel with a couple of other friends for ten years now so we get to talk periodically but you pitched me going to Arizona and seeing national parks I would say why should someone do that. But you already said national parks so Arizona just has the Grand Canyon right well. That's that's the big one I would say you're looking at. That's what it's best known for but actually Arizona has twenty two different national park service sites. Which places at third amongst all states as far as the number of sites behind California and Alaska only having some second now that I think about it but yeah there's a lot and I've been to a lot of these but you actually came up with some that I'd never heard of so. That was one of the reasons that I was anxious to. Have you back on the show and talk about this but let's talk about? Why should someone go to Arizona and see the national parks? Well for starters you can go year round and I think that something that you can't do easily in a lot of parks last year. For example I did a trip to southern Oregon and Northern California and even in June a lot of the parks there were snowed in and when I showed in I mean. Twenty feet of snow snowed in right so this is in the summer. And they're still so much snow. Because it's an altitude. And you're you're not gonNA really see that in Arizona Star in in the south so if you're looking for a trip in the winter or something it's it's a great place to go and there's a great diversity. These aren't just natural sites although it certainly has those there's a great deal of history. That goes back told him. The ancient people who lived in this area before Europeans showed up as well as a westward expansion in a host of other things so there really is a wide diversity. I also going to see some landscapes that you're really not going to see anywhere else or other desserts in the United States but The SONORAN desert that. You're going to see here is really unique and have some things that you're just not gonNA find saying California Nevada or even Utah. The one exception I can think of to. You're not going to run into whether here would be the North Rim of the Grand Canyon Which closes in October want to say because it had closed before. We did a trip in October of last year. It hadn't snowed in yet but all services were closed on the largest closed in all facilities are closed at that point and then it will snow in. And they'll stop plowing the roads as soon as the snows happen. Yeah so I was last there. In January of twenty twenty those primarily in the Tucson area but then I made a trip up north around flagstaff and a lot of people don't realize that there's snow up in flagstaff primarily because of the elevation than anything. And so yeah. There was definitely snow on the ground when I visited some of the sites but I live in Minnesota so this was like your price my first winter. It was not a lot of snow. Wasn't that coal right. The roads are open. You can you can actually go and see stuff well and I remember being at the Grand Canyon in April when there was snow at the Rim and it was eighty degrees at the bottom so it depends a lot where you are absolutely. So what kind of itinerary do you recommend? It really depends on where you're going to be. I think most people are probably going to be flying into Tucson or Phoenix right and the third place might be flagstaff. One smaller town. But it's in the north and There's kind of pockets of parks around those. And the first one I would bring up is a park while National Monument and it's extremely unique among all the sites in the United States that's Hokum National Monument anemic because you cannot visit and if you could visit. There is nothing to see well then. It's unique in an unusual way. I have needs a little bit of explanation so just south of Phoenix is the reservation. There was an archaeological dig. Their WANNA say took place in the seventies sixties and seventies called snake down and what they ended up doing was once. The excavation was over the reburied it. So you got declared a national monument and it's on the reservation and they don't let you go and visit the site or snake town is but if they did there is literally nothing to see because it's buried and for National Park collectors. It poses a problem because for whatever reason it's still on the books huff thirds no visitor center. There's no there's nothing but technically make them really getting technical here if you look at the outline of what constitutes the National Monument isn't interstate that runs through it so should actually go to the Beltway Beneath Phoenix. YOU'RE ON THAT ROAD. You will technically drive through this area and you'll see buffing. There's nothing there so it's kind of an oddity on. I don't know why it's still on the books or why it's there. But supposedly there was a cultural center for the tribe and you go there and they had a display about snake Tama. They closed it. And they're going to be reopening again and you could actually get a stamp there and that would be the closest thing to visit other than that I mean. I think we could talk about so there of the twenty two sites. There are three national parks proper. The first is obviously the Grand Canyon. I don't know how much we need to talk about that. I'm sure done shows on the Grand Canyon. We have done a show on the Grand Canyon in the first year of Amateur Traveler. And then we did another show later on about Rafting the Grand Canyon with the George Wendt the now late founder of ores rafting But that's been a little while ago so it's worth a mention. Yeah I mean everyone's familiar with it. Is You mentioned you can access it from the North or the South? It's a very common trip for people to make from Las Vegas. Yeah although people go to the South Rim from Las Vegas. That's long drive right. I mean and it should be noted. The Grand Canyon says enormous chunk taken out of the state of Arizona and their bridges to get around. It writes the you have to drive around at our fly over it. The southern rim is lower elevation and by far the more popular of the two sides. You can visit. It gets ninety percent of the tourism. Am I read about that? Would sound about right if you go further up river you get into the Glen Canyon Recreation area. And that's where you'll see that's like horseshoe bend is a famous site of most people may have seen the photo also National Park Service site on the Colorado River but not part of the Canyon and if you go downstream there are also some Indian reservations. One of which which famously built the Skywalk horseshoe-shaped. Yeah so it it. It's one of the most popular parks in the United States. It should have been put on the list of the seven. Natural Wonders of the world said the underground river in the Philippines. Made it not that. We're bitter fool. No in the way they walked in it was kind of ridiculous but yeah it's the one thing that if you're an American or even if you're not American coming to visit the United States I think you should I mean it's literally alongside maybe yellowstone in Yosemite those are considered the three crown jewel national parks in the US system brand. It really is an incredible experience in the one thing I would say so I was back at the Grand Canyon this year ahead not been since my daughter was four or so and she is thirty so it had been a little while and still beautiful. Lovett have still never gone down into the Canyon. And so that's a whole different trip when you hike down into the Canyon and spend the night and hike backup in or raft at which takes a week and you need to plan well advance. But I did get a chance this time. You mentioned Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. I did get a chance to do one of the float trips from the Damn Glen Canyon Dam all the way down to the borders of the Grand Canyon National Park where you actually raft around or boat around the Horseshoe. Bend and it was enjoyable. It's a float trip. It's not a Whitewater trip. It's easy anybody can do it but I would say it was enjoyable. I would recommend it. Yeah and the other park. I should probably mention that is up in this northern Arizona area that you can also visit on a daytrip from Las. Vegas is pipe Spring National Monument. Okay my last trip Las Vegas. I went there. It is a historical site that really deals with early. Mormon missions This is one of the sites. It's very close to the border of Utah again. Not that far from Las Vegas. I'd say it's maybe a two hour drive. An interesting site again does not get a lot of visitors. I unless you're probably entrusted in early settler history or Mormon history or something like that most people are probably not going to go but interesting site and Kinda off by itself. I know a lot of people when they're in Vegas. The two big trips are to go to Zaire on or the Grand Canyon in. It's another I don't think there's any organized trips visit displays at some. You pretty much have to do your car. Will you mentioned something about National Park Collectors? And you and I are both national collectors. And that's the kind of person who is going to go to this site. I'm not a person who is going to go to the site. Although I didn't know what pipe spring but one of the ways that you discover sites like this besides spending way too much time on the National Park website or Gary's website is by having a national park passport and that's the kind of thing that drives you to these little less known sites and some of them are wonders and and really undeservedly unknown. Oh yeah and we're going to be getting some of that. I think are really fantastic. One of the things about what I do. So yeah I go to these parks and I go to World Heritage sites right a lot of times. I'll visit them simply because it's it's a point on a map yet so I'm really discovering it when I'm there and I'd say ninety percent of the time it's unpleasantly surprised by like wow. This is really interesting. I'm surprised more people to know that and then ten percent of the time. It's a total duds. I'm scratching my head as to why exist but it is really interesting In the one other I think we should add kind of in this northwest area. Verizon is Lake Mead which is primarily thought of as Nevada Park. Most of it is but it actually does go into Arizona as well and that is a national recreation area if Iraq. Okay so they're outing and fishing and things like that so then there's three different sites very close to flagstaff very very close to each other. Probably within a forty five minute drive you can easily visit all three in one day. Two of which are so close together that they're kind of treated as a single unit in at Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument and walk Deke National Monument Sunset Crater is a volcano and it's a relatively recent eruption. So you can still see the full cinder cone and it's not a very big park so you kind of just drive through it and the road that goes through the park if you stay on that road for about twenty minutes more than you get to Lucky National Monument. Just a completely different part. That's actually one of the several Anastase e quello monuments that you're gonNA see around the southwest or the ancient Pueblo. People as I understand we. Now call them Because there's controversy about the name but basically the first settlers in this area and there are several of the dwellings. Go visit a long. The the road that goes through the park and it's really easy to any probably should visit both of those two together and like. I said it is one road that takes you to both of them and I'm pretty sure that the management of both of those sites are linked together. They're so close together So this is like a major highway and then the entrance to one of the sites is on the south among you drive the loop road and then it takes you up to the northern end of the highway and boom. You're there you know that's one I have not been then. The third is Walnut Canyon National Monument In this is one of these pleasant surprises. Walnut Canyon is surprisingly very steep deep canyon. Not Not Grand Canyon time but it. It's very steep in here to UC. Click swellings almost impossibly. So so if you go to Mesa Verde and say Colorado. Those are really large dwellings. That were all built in rather large. I don't want to cave sort of like these. These cutouts in the sides of cliffs where they can build these rather large dwellings in Walnut Canyon..

He signaled that he wanted to trade the BIBS that had their names printed on them. A sign of the greatest respect between athletes the South African man then raised his hand and bowed to the crowd as though he had one the stadium cheered wildly for him at homes around the world family sat in their living rooms and shook their heads in disbelief amazing some mm said absolutely incredible they reacted as such because the South African was a man named Oscar pistorius the first double amputee to run in the Olympic Games to get here he not only had to qualify competing against the world's greatest but also navigate the trials of hellacious litigation to prove that his carbon fiber prosthetics did not give him an unfair advantage edge historians had become an international hero a poster boy for overcoming obstacles but what he would be remembered for was not his phenomenal unrivalled resume of athletic achievement. It was the result of a single night six months after the London Olympics when when Oscar pistorius fired four shots into his closed bathroom door killing his twenty nine year old girlfriend Riva Steam Steam Camp.

"Laws when they decided the best way to fight fight-back would be to boycott the Montgomery City buses on December fifth the day of Roses Trial N. double. ACP volunteers mimeographed yeah graft over thirty five thousand fliers to get the word out about the boycott they read stay off the buses Monday in protest protests of the arrest and trial. You can afford to stay out of school for one day. If you work. Take a cab or walk but please children children and grown ups. Don't ride the boss at all on Monday. These flyers were sent home with black schoolchildren and they were posted in black neighborhoods and on December fourth Nixon was even able to get an ad in the local paper on December number fifty nine thousand nine hundred fifty five around twenty people gathered at Mount Zion African Methodist Episcopal Zion church in Montgomery to discuss the best strategies auditees for the bus boycott. They decided that if Rosa lost the case the boycott would extend beyond her trial date indefinitely to organize organiz a longer bus boycott the group elected one of their most trusted team members to spearhead the movement a twenty six year old Baptist Reverend by the name of Dr Martin Luther King Junior together with the help of the N. double. ACP He formed the Montgomery Improvement Association. Their goal was to keep the boycott going until the status. Quo Changed that day forty two year old Rosa parks stepped into the stuffy halls of the Montgomery County courthouse. She was greeted by a bustling crowd of around around five hundred local supporters cheering her on her attorney was a man named Fred Gray and accomplished lawyer preacher and and activist who graduated from Case Western Reserve University School of law he was a go getter with a strong passion for civil rights in fact upon moving to Alabama. He said he was ready to destroy everything segregated but given the racist laws in place. Rosa never stood a chance the entire trial lasted all of thirty minutes during which Rosa was convicted of disorderly conduct and and violating the local bus ordinance she was fine ten dollars plus four dollars in courtroom fees approximately one hundred and fifty dollars in today's currency all the crime of refusing to vacate a bus seat the N. double. ACP and the black community at large deemed at this verdict unacceptable Rosette should not be charged with breaking the law if that law was unethical in the first place and so the Montgomery bus boycott began it rained on the evening of December Fifth Nineteen fifty five but but even so the city buses were mostly empty forty thousand people walk through the rain to get home from work some as far as twenty twenty miles as Montgomery's black population made up about seventy percent of all bus customers. The boycott struck in early in devastating blow. The buses soon became something of a laughing stock public buses sat at the side of the road completely empty except for the drivers ars but the boycott also had an adverse effect on Rosa and her husband a week into the protest. Rosa was fired from her seamstress job he'd held for years. No reason was given about Rosa suspected. It was because of her involvement in the boycott the next week Raymond also lost his job after talking about the boycott at work but the setbacks only made the parks family all the more more resolute as weeks passed the city of Montgomery began to feel the financial impact of the boycott bus fares bears were a reliable source of income for any city and now with the boycott in full swing that revenue stream was drying up on January anuary thirtieth nineteen fifty six the fifty seventh day of the boycott. The home of Dr Martin Luther King was bombed to buy white radicals two days later Edgar. Nixon's house was also bombed but once more the black community refused is to be intimidated in the face of property damage and violence the boycott continued meanwhile roses legal troubles proliferators liberated the city of Montgomery had criminalized boycotts and on February twenty first nineteen fifty six. She was arrested once again again for her role in the movement. Her supporters once again bailed her out but she knew that the fight wasn't over yet six months after the boycott began roses attorney. Fred Gray finally managed to gain an audience with the US District Court for the Middle District Straight Valla Bama in June nineteen fifty six fred argued that state bus segregation laws were unconstitutional and violated the rights of his community on June fifth nineteen fifty-six the three judges announced their ruling two to one in favor of Fred Gray. The fight still wasn't over the city of Montgomery filed an appeal that took the case to the United States Supreme Court on November Thirteenth Nineteen nineteen fifty-six over the next month. Fred continued to fight for his community and on December seventeenth nineteen fifty six he emerged victorious the Supreme Court rejected the appeal and ruled that bus segregation was illegal at the time roses case and the accompanying boycott was the largest successful black civil rights action in US history on December nineteenth nineteen fifty six the supreme court's written order arrived at the Montgomery Court House. Segregation of buses was officially officially illegal in the city. The boycott ended the next day and Montgomery's black citizens resumed using the buses after three hundred and eighty one days of walking and taking cabs for her bravery and her vision Rosa came to be known as the mother of the civil rights movement unfortunately even after the boycott ended she continued to face further harassment and threats Rosa and her husband Raymond grew to feel so oh unsafe they eventually relocated to Detroit Michigan in nineteen fifty seven and settled near Rosa's brother Sylvester MacAulay while in Detroit Rosa became an administrative aide in the Detroit Office of Congressman John Conyers Junior. She stayed there from nineteen sixty four to to her retirement in nineteen eighty eight regarding her work at this time she said I would have to take long of a minute to and give my whole synopsis of my life but I want to let you know that are all of us. Uh should be free and equal and have equal opportunity and that is what I'm trying to instill and and curry and inspire young people to reach the high for ten zero throughout the nineteen seventies Rosa Parks donated most of her money to civil rights organizations like the N. double. ACP and witnessed the establishment of a number of equitable laws including the Fair Housing Act and the Civil Rights Act of nineteen sixty eight the nineteen seventies also proved to be some of the most personally heartbreaking years of her life on August nineteenth nineteen seventy seven her husband died of throat cancer a few months later in November nineteen seventy seven her brother also died of cancer mindful of her husband's in the ability to receive a formal education during his lifetime Rosa co-founded the Rosa Rosa l Parks Scholarship Foundation for college bound high school seniors and the Roseanne Raymond Parks Institute for self development to serve Detroit's youth on October twenty fourth two thousand five at the age of ninety two Rosa Parks passed away in her apartment in Detroit Michigan she was laid to rest in the US capital and honor typically reserved for statesmen and military leaders in fact she was the first woman to ever receive such a distinction at her funeral over thirty thousand people passed by her coffin to pay respects and on December first two thousand five most major cities in the United States left seats empty on public public buses to commemorate roses incredible act of civil disobedience roses dedication to community and equality extended far beyond a refusal to give up her seat on a bus she was an advocate for black people and women everywhere and helped catapult the civil rights movement to the mainstream thanks to her courage. Rosa parks became a role model and icon and for women of Color as she explained I have learned over the years that when one's mind is made up knowing what must be done does away with fear.

"In September nineteen forty four thirty one year old N. w. c. p. activist Rosa Parks met met with rape survivor rec- Taylor in Abbeville Alabama local police tried to stem roses advocacy attempting to intimidate and even threaten in her into letting receives case disappear the moment she was back in Montgomery Rosa returned to the end of Lacey Pe- office and explained the encounter counter to their President Edgar Nixon in response to the police's tactics. Rosa and Nixon founded the committee for equal justice for the rights of Mrs Mrs Resea- Taylor as subgroup of the N. double. ACP This committee was comprised of a dozen leading black activists that were dedicated to making taking Taylor story public knowledge. They sent dozens of letters to the office of Alabama Governor Chauncey sparks urging him take the case to trial in one letter Rosa wrote. I know that you will not fail to let the people of Alabama know that there is aqel justice for all citizens roses efforts paid off and the incident was picked up by local newspapers then by press around the nation by February of nineteen forty five Alabama. Governor sparks was forced to take action. He reluctantly agreed to launch a second can special grand jury investigation into the crime but the special jury ultimately brought no charges against the accused rapists. Rosa was furious all her efforts had stirred up public support an outrage but Taylor still couldn't secure justice one by one. The frustrations of dealing with inequality on a daily basis started to build up a year earlier. Rosa Rosa had had a memorable encounter of her own. The Montgomery bus system was becoming a lightning rod for political controversy in part because of the extreme lengths they went to in the name of segregation for example bus tickets could only be purchased at the front of the vehicle meaning meaning all riders had to use the front doors to buy their ticket but Montgomery buses also had segregated entrances one for white people at the front and and another for black passengers at the back when a black person wanted to take the bus she'd have to board at the front purchaser ticket then and leave and re board through the back doors. The ridiculous policy served no practical purpose. It was only there to embarrass an inconvenience black black riders on a rainy day in nineteen forty-three. Rosa boarded a public bus in downtown. Montgomery reluctant to go back out into the rain mm-hmm. She instead walked directly back to a seat without exiting and re entering through the back door. The driver James F Blake was is infuriated. He ordered Rosa to exit and re enter through her designated entrance twice. Rosa refused so oh blake grab. Rosa dragged her outside and threw out into the rain before she had a chance to process what had happened. The bus pulled away a stranding her. The whole ordeal was incredibly traumatizing for Rosa in her autobiography she wrote. I never wanted wanted to be on that man's bus again after that. I made a point of looking at who was driving the bus before I got on. I didn't want any more run. INS is with that mean. One Rosa wasn't the only person who is sick and tired of discrimination on the buses in nineteen fifty five fifteen year old girl named Claudette Colvin was riding the bus home from Booker T. Washington high school in Montgomery. The bus was was crowded that day and cove and was asked to stand so a white woman could take her seat. Kovin refused the bus driver ordered cove and and to get up but Kovin held her ground this escalated to the point that the police were called and Coleman was arrested at at that time Montgomery had several contradictory laws regarding segregation a symptom of the push and pull between civil rights activists and the racist cyst establishment so one law not only permitted but required the bus driver to have cloven arrested while another protected cove ines right it to any seat. She wanted the N. double. ACP had long been looking for an opportunity to challenge the pro segregation laws and have them formally formerly overturned in Co.. WTN's arrests seemed like a perfect opportunity to bring Jim Crow all the way before the Supreme Court however the Organization soon learned that the teenage Kovin was pregnant out of wedlock. This should have had nothing to do with her case but at the end of the Lacey Pe- feared that juries would be less sympathetic to an unmarried mother with stakes so high they didn't WanNa take any chances chances the organization raised funds for coal WTN's defense but chose not to try to make her the new face of racial inequality. They'd have to wait for the next arrest nine months later on December first nineteen fifty five forty two year old Rosa parks boarded Ed bus number two eight five seven. It was about six. PM and she was on her way home from work at the Montgomery Fair Department Store. She paid her affair and sat down in an empty seat in the back section. She wasn't paying much attention as she boarded and didn't notice that the driver was was James F Blake the same driver who'd kicked her off the bus the previous year for not using the back door for the next three stops the bus traveled along its normal route more passengers got on and the bus slowly filled up by the time the the bus reached its third stop outside the Empire Theater. The whites only section at the front of the bus was over capacity. There was no seat for one. The white passengers in the front so blake stopped the bus and told the first row of black passengers to stand up so he could make a new row for the white writers. He said Y'all better make it light on yourself and let me have those seats. Rosa hadn't planned to make a stand that day but for whatever reason something snapped she later explained. I was not tired physically no more tired than I usually was. At the end of a working day how old I was forty two. No the only tired I was tired of giving in the rear of the black passengers stood up up Rosa didn't she later wrote when that white driver stepped back toward us when he waved his hand and ordered us up and out of our seats. I I felt a determination cover. My Body like a quilt on a winter night. Rosa remained in her seat staring at the driver. Offer Blake squinted back at her. He asked her again. Why don't you stand up. She replied. I don't think I should have to stand up then. She moved to the window seat. Further away from the Isle Lake asked her again if she was going to stand up Rosa again refused blake threatened to call the police. Rosa responded you do that so blake aac place the call while they waited. Roseau remained firmly planted in her seat. She tried to ignore the judgmental glares from the other. The riders assured that she was in the right eventually. Two policemen arrived at the scene. Blake explained the situation and Rosa was was charged with violating chapter six section eleven the Montgomery City code which enforce the segregation of public buses. They took her off the bus and drove her downtown to police headquarters along the way. She asked one of the policemen. Why do you push us around around. The officers. Response was simply. I don't know but the law's the law and your under arrest. Rosa was allowed one call at the station which he made to her husband Raymond. She told him that she had been given even a court date on December. Fifth Raymond was worried but he was also proud of his wife from making stand he promised her he would find the bail money to get her out of jail soon N. double. ACP Chapter President Edgar Nixon arrived the same night Rosa was sent to jail AOL Edgar paid her bail and had her released by then word of Rosa Parks arrest had spread to most of Alabama's black population. Rosa was an upstanding member of the community in many were astounded that she of all people would be arrested for such a minor offence offense. Edgar saw this anger in his community as an opportunity to get people mobilized later that night he visited the parks home and explained a plan to Rosa she could be the face of a new activist movement and as Rosa listened to Edgar's pitch. She felt hope spring in her chest. She was about to spark the historic. Montgomery bus boycott up next. We'll hear how roses work transformed the civil rights movement now back to the story. The black community in Montgomery Alabama was outraged following Rosa parks arrest on December first nineteen fifty five the N. double A. C. P. wanted to capitalize on roses case raising awareness as they tried to overturn Montgomery's segregation.

Today we're discussing. Rosa parks dubbed the mother of the Civil Civil Rights movement. She's most famous today for refusing to give up a seat on a bus in Montgomery Alabama. Her Act of Resistance Against Racist Segregation Segregation launched a boycott that proved pivotal to the fight for racial equality but Rosas activism extended beyond bus protests. It's an active member of the N. double. ACP Rosa championed black victims of sexual assault organized acts of civil disobedience and founded educational initiatives for disadvantaged students of Color Rosa Parks was born Rosa Louise as MacAulay on February fourth nineteen thirteen INTAS Gigi Alabama her early life was unstable as her parents separated when Rosa it was only two roses birthplace in Gigi insured. She grew up in the center of the nascent civil rights movement prominent Black Intellectual Booker. T. Washington was active there as soon as Rosa was old enough to understand issues of race. She was hyper aware of the inequality as well every Sunday she worshiped at the African Methodist Episcopal Church. Historically Black denomination initially founded to promote an abolitionist geology and then later devoted to racial equality. When Rosa was eleven years old she moved with her mother and brother to Montgomery Alabama Alabama where her grandparents lived there. She continued her harsh education about racial politics by the early nineteen twenties the white supremacist hate group that Ku Klux Klan was increasingly active for a decade after the civil war the K. K. K. had terrorized people of color color in the southern United States the hate group had declined to the point of nearly disbanding in the late eighteen hundreds but white supremacy experienced a resurgence surgeons in response to the growing number of immigrants in the US by the time Rosa was a young child the KKK boasted more than four million Leeann active members fearful of racially motivated attacks each evening roses grandfather laid a loaded shotgun across his lap APP and slept in a rocking chair near the front door eager to help defend her home and family. Rosa took to sleeping on the floor beside him. You're so when Rosa Parks was eleven. Her mother enrolled her in the private segregated Montgomery Industrial School for girls. It was the best education available to a black girl in the city despite her young age Rosa had to work to pay for her tuition. She took a janitorial job at the school pool cleaning up rooms after classes and every day she saw little reminders of the inequality she faced the white students had a bus Rosa and other black students didn't she walked to school every day. Even in the winter in her autobiography biography Rosa Parks My story Rosa wrote. I'd see the bus pass every day but to me. That was a way of life we we had no choice but to accept. What was the custom. The bus was among the first ways I realized there was a black world and a white world hold on during her walks. Rosa often passed by white children and adults who would shout racial slurs at her unprovoked. Some children even tossed pasta rocks at her as she walked by to cope with the stress. Rosa found comfort in her religious beliefs. She reminded herself that her bullies were simply lost sinners and prayed for them while they harassed her. She knew she couldn't do anything more concrete to defend herself because the police wouldn't look kindly on a black girl fighting white people even if they'd started it. Rosa attended high school at the laboratory school at the historically Black Alabama state teachers college but unfortunately she had to drop out a year later to help care for her ailing grandmother shortly after Rose's Rose's grandmother died her mother to grew. Ill now the family's primary caretaker. Rosa needed to work to support them and provide medical medical care education was out of the question at least until someone new entered Rosa's life and encouraged her to go back to school in Nineteen thirty one when Rosa was eighteen a mutual friend introduced her to a twenty eight year old barber named Raymond Parks. It was clear during their very first meeting that Raymond was romantically interested in her but Rosa didn't return his affection one of her biggest reservations nations lay in the fact that Raymond was a light skinned black man Rosa didn't find him physically attractive and she also doubted that a man and who could pass for white could really understand her day to day struggles as a dark skinned black woman however as their friendship blossomed Rosa learned that Raymond was passionate civil rights advocate and a member of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People War N. double. ACP She was surprised to find that although Raymond dressed well and was an intelligent and thoughtful speaker he barely attended school at all aw thanks to segregation in time a romance blossomed between Raymond and Rosa and they were married on December eighteenth nineteen thirty thirty two when she was nineteen and he was twenty nine Raymond Encourage Rosa to pursue the education he'd never ever had and with his support. She returned to high school and finally completed her degree. Soon after Rosa got a job as a seamstress at a department store you're while Raymond continued on his work with the N. double. ACP although Rosa and Raymond shared beliefs about equal rights initially she kept her her distance from the organization N. Double ACP members feared reprisal from white supremacists and they regularly came to meetings heavily armed should did they need to defend themselves on one occasion. Raymond volunteered to host a meeting at his in Rosa's house shaken by the number of men who arrived lived armed Rosa walked out of the House and sat on the porch hunched over with her head between her knees while the men inside discussed politics Sushi's sat alone in the dark waiting and fear for the first bullets to fly in the moment Rosa was paralyzed by fear violence silence but long-term she grew increasingly frustrated with these sexist assumption that her husband could take risks and join the N. double. ACP while she she needed to be shielded from it so in nineteen forty three thirty year old Rosa finally joined for herself once again sexism reared its head at the N. double ACP as the only woman to attend on her first night. Rosa was tasked with taking taking meeting notes. She was elected secretary at that same meeting but she soon had the opportunity to advocate for women and Black people alike has the chapter began to examine the racial inequality in how police investigated sexual assaults. It was all too common at the time for black men to be falsely accused of raping white women if those men were lucky they'd go to court but still have to plead their case before racist judges judges and juries if they were unlucky. The accused were often lynched by white mobs before their trials began black. Women men also suffered from unjust investigations when they filed reports. The police rarely took their cases seriously rape survivors of have color had few opportunities to pursue justice especially if their attacker was white a particularly egregious case involved a woman named re resc- Taylor on the evening of September third nineteen forty four was walking home from church with two friends when a group of white men abducted abducted her and gang raped her after the assault REC- reported to the police what had happened her friend corroborated the account a few hours later a police officer found the rapists and asked if they had an alibi imen- confess that they'd raped reecey and the police halted the investigation there without pressing charges news of this crime and the polices inaction made it back to the N.

"Are. That's what I would do. But so anyways. So, and then, of course, lift operates the minivans, but they've now officially said that Disney parks is the official ride service of Disney parks. So along with many, and so obviously, the chances of thing they don't have the Disneyland, which is really not necessary. So they're going to be expanding their greet with lift riders for lift. So this is what I think, is just too. We'll have a special designated drop off area that will be closer than if you were using Uber or a taxi. And I was like, oh, really to be that's like to me. Okay story just for Anne. Big deal, because I use them all the time, not just the minivans but I always use lift. So I think that's I think it gives people another option. I think if you're not wanting to have to go back and a huge crowd, especially in the summers with hot sweaty people who don't use Yale, right? This is a really good option for you. And if you just you the live this thing is if you just do lift it's nowhere near expensive as many, many man is so expensive. It's dumb. I get I get it, which is weird because if, if minivan is lift. Then what's the difference many van, obviously special car, but a minivan is an actual Disney cast member. That's driving you. So you're getting that, like Disney quality of service, and the people, and I found this out last time we took because we to be on most of the time when we were in there in April, and they have to work for Disney for a certain period of time before they can apply to be a minivan driver. So they have to have like ridiculous knowledge of the Disney parks to be. So I love that. It's clean. You're gonna you're gonna have much a much better ride. They play park music. You know, the background music is so great. And they're just a better quality. Lift, like I mean, I do better that you were. You really don't know what you're getting into when you get into ride sharing any mean I've drove for both Uber. An lift, you would be lovely about some very nice men and women driving. But I've also had some very sketchy rise in L. my life. So anyways, I think that's I think that's pretty interesting. I'm pumped about the separate line 'cause. So I'm just. This is a story just ran apparently. So speaking of new in fun things. The Rivera, which I didn't know I didn't know the opening date for the Rivera, reveres opening December sixteenth, which is Cole. Thought it would open a little bit earlier. But whatevs so reservations. Just in time for the holidays reservations are now open for top Lena's terrorists, which we've talked about on previous episodes. It's going to be like, well as a girl is on top of the contemporary, same idea with Rivera so toppling os, which is the Italian word for Mickey Mouse, and its view. Yet Pollino until Bellina suppling as many obviously. So it's going to be on top of the Rivera. It's toppling terrorists. So they just opened dining reservations. So you can if you're staying you know, Disney is actually, here's a question. If you're staying at a Disney resort. Are you able to make reservations early on? I guess not because I mean you can go through open tables. Reservations in advance. The fast assets like a different time window. If you're not saying the Disney resort. Oh, yeah. Well, if you're staying on a Disney resort, you can book your dining, reservations one hundred eighty days in advance. Okay. Since the same doesn't matter. All right. So. I guess it is a hundred eighty days till December sixteen gross. So there's, they're accepting or accepting four, obviously dinner as revisions. But then there's going to be a character dining experience hot at. At toppling in it's going to be the fat five. So it's going to be Mickey Minnie goofy, Donald that whole crew, which is what it is about me, but I really don't I don't care to have Disney dining experience with characters melt hard because I'm just like all right, man. Like just trying to eat the salad. I would never order. Get out of my base. It's hard because it's like the jig is up for us, like we don't, and I hope kids are not listening to this right now and I'm not trying to like root, Zana clubs or anything for you. But this is it adult podcast. So we know that there's a person in there. So to me, it's like weird like I would feel weird. Like they'll coming up to me. I'm like, dude. Go, like I feel like I'm taking the time away from a child, like, go hang out with the character dining is nothing for me. I don't I don't get that feeling really. 'cause I I love to see them outside in the parts like watch the mall on in Fantasma. But like when I'm meeting, I don't wanna be bothered. I don't even like it. When the waiter waitress comes around and how's your food, because twenty times to twenty your mouth is going to be full of your food, and you're like fine, perfectly fine. Can I have another baggage? Another beverage Goslin. And like I don't wanna ask Mickey for another glass of wine. That'd be weird. He Mickey since you're hovering over my shoulder. Can you please just fill up my glass of wine? Thanks. I feel like to an to board. Please, please. Judge my degree run. I feel like it's madness, too because like I've walked by plenty of character breakfasts like like chef Mickey's over in contemporary, what does that Cape May over it yawn beach in, it's dislike a shit show, and I'm just not about that life like, I'm not if, if I had children, all I'd be doing all the character breakfast for sure. Sure. Sure. For shoes like as an adult unlike no, like I just don't I just don't need it in my life. It's an expense that I don't need. I am. I am kids. In my opinion in my opinion. But I do think it's cool that it's like the main fab five. Right. So those time. Yeah, I think that's cool. Because sometimes you don't get like all of them, I think, the only place what I'm probably totally wrong on this. But like I, I one thinking is like chef maggie's, where it's like all the main ones, you know. So I think it's cool that it's going to be the major Disney tizzy characters. But is it just weird like in a lot of advertising in a lot of? I disagree at Disney it's, it's always like Mickey many. Donald goofy. Then the two chipmunks like Chippendale, like what are they doing there? Daisy passion. Where's day exe-? Hashtag. This. Actually one. No, seriously. Like that's true. Where's easy so insane? I feel fended and attacked. And on each. No. I gene identify as a female duct of. It's twenty nineteen vaccinating. Being with that. The other day it was great a love that. I love that with Geoffrey Geoffrey stars like twenty nineteen Rechsteiner. Awesome. Refunding. Do you don't talk about? Yeah. All the products Cav on these products. That was so funny. But yeah, yeah. Where is I'm little, maybe she will be there. I don't know. I need I need photographic proof. Someone needs to show me the daisy will be there. Show me the daisy Chevy the days and, you know, maybe daisies all go. I'm not gonna make that promise by. You know what's so funny? Do you play Disney magic kingdom's know what? It's okay. So for those of you who listen and do play. I'm so excited. But also, if you're not playing on what you're doing. It's an app on you know from it's a game. It's kinda like you create your own magic kingdom. Oh, I downloaded it a long time ago after I got a new phone. I just never redound loaded it I am. So I played that game at least three times a day because tell him to play, like 'cause, you know, you keeping up with all actually opening it, every now just like tell you what level I am because I'm so hard up on it. But today, I was listening, I have the sound on while I was mourning while I was catching up and getting all my, my little coins, whatever. And. And. Daisy had some like fierce woman thing having to say, like I feel like daisies a hard worker, like daisies like the Samantha of the group. Jamie. And like I feel like men's the Kerry and somebody. Daisies. I'm on level, fifty three. Oh, wow. You're real into so hard up on this thing I remember years playing it. But anyway, so Jesus said something say that was fiercely feminist. And I just feel like daisies icon. See that. I have nothing to back me up. But I don't know why I mean not that I don't love many. I mean minis my favorite I love many forever. I sleep with anyone. I'm not when next on home, but something about days. You gotta watch echo. Toppling too. So for those of you don't. So the Riviera resort, again opening December sixteenth, it's going to be a based off of waltz. Visits to the Mediterranean, which is or to the French Riviera Rivera place lake, you know, the south of France, and like the coast, that whole thing, which is where I'm going in a couple of weeks, if he had, like photo albums, and such. Okay. Yeah, they're they use that as part of the art in the Bill, like his trips 'cause I was like, how are they say? Like this is what he saw like base awful waltz drip to Italy. I never went to Italy. He's like I didn't. Nobody looked at some of the are the decor whenever I beat it looks really nice. I think the hotel is really nice. It's considered deluxe. It's in the Kat era, but you can only use these skyline are or you know, use a taken over to the meat. I don't I'm still real not satisfied with that skyline or scares me to death. I don't know. I'm gonna ride it this to get like a reaction. Outright on end. Bring rosary with me man jeeze. Louise terrified for my life. Just bring on my beyond say, CD's. Going down the odds going women. So it's supposed to be the, the food is supposed to be very much like French Riviera food like coastal Italian like my favorite kinds of food. So I'm obviously excited to go to this place..
