"Beauty. Working away conscientiously with that little plex frown of his. I felt intensely. Sorry for this man but this failing did not last. There was no help for it. Oak was not as interesting as mrs oak and it required too great an effort to pump up sympathy for this normal excellent exemplary young squire in the presence of so wonderful a creature as his wife so i let myself go to the habit of allowing mrs daily to talk over her strange craze or rather joying out about it. I confess deny derived a morbid and pleasure in doing so. It was so characteristic in her so appropriate to the house it completed a personality so perfectly and made it so much easier to conceive away of painting her. I made up my mind that volatile. A working at william oakes portrayed. He proved less easy subject tonight. Anticipated and despite these conscientious efforts was a nervous and comfortable sitter silent and brooding. I made up my mind. I would paint. Misses oak standing by the cabinet in the yellow room. In the white van. Dyke dress copied from the portrait of our ancestors. Missed oak might resented it. Misses o keefe and mike presented. They may refuse to take the picture to pay for it to allow me to exhibit. They might force me to run my umbrella through the picture. No matter that picture should be painted if merely for the sake of having painted for. I felt it was the only thing i could do and that it would be far away my best work. I told neither of my resolution but prepared sketch after sketch mris oak while continuing to paint husband. Mrs oak was a silent person. More silent even husband for she did not feel bound as he did to attempt to entertain guest or to show any interest in him seemed to spend her life a curious inactive off invalid ish life broken by sudden fits of childish cheerfulness. In an eternal daydream strolling about the house and grounds arranging the quantities of flowers and always filled all the rooms beginning to read and throwing aside novels and books of poetry of which you always have a large number. And i believe lying for hours doing nothing on a couch in that yellow drawing room which with a sole exception. No member of the oak family had have been known disdain alone little by little. I began to suspect and to verify another eccentricity of this eccentric being and to understand why there were stringent orders never to disturb yellow room. It'd been habits at oakhurst as at one or two the english manor houses to keep a certain amount of the clothes of each generation more particularly wedding dresses. A carved oaken press which. Mr oak wants display. The contents to me was a perfect museum of costumes. Male and female from the early years of the seventeenth to the end of the eighteenth century. A thing to take away the breath of bric a brac collector an antiquarian or a genre painter. Mr oak was none of these and therefore took little interest in the collection saving so far as interested. His family feeling still. He seemed well acquainted with the contents of that price. He was turning over the clothes for my benefit. When suddenly i noticed that he frowned. I know now ought impelled me to say by the way. Have you any dresses of that. Mrs oak whom your wife resembles so much. Have you got that particular white dress. She was painted apps. Oak oak focused flushed very read. Are we have it. The answered hesitatingly but eight isn't he rick present. I can't find it. I suppose he blurted out with an f. It'd alice's got it misses oak. Sometimes as the fancy of having some of these old things down i suppose he takes ideas from the. A sudden light dawned in my mind. The white dress. In which i had seen mrs oaken yellow room. The day that she showed me love look versus was not as i had thought a modern copy. It was the original dress of allie. Soak the daughter of virtual pomfret the dress in which perhaps christopher lovelock had seen her in every room. The idea gave me a delightful picturesque shudder. I said muffing. I picture you to myself. Mrs oak sitting in yellow room. That room which no of oakhurst safer self ventured to remain alone in the dress of ancestries confronting as it were that vague haunting something that seemed to fill the place that vague presence it seemed to me of the murdered cavalier. Poet mrs occas has said was extremely silent as a result of being extremely indifferent. She really did not care in the least about anything except her own ideas and daydreams except when every now and then she was seized with a sudden desire to shock the prejudices or superstitions of her husband very soon she got into the way of never talking to me tool save over alison nicholas oaken christopher lovelock and then when the it ceased her she would go on by the hour. Never asking myself whether i was not equally interested in a strange craze. It fascinated her. It so happened that i was. I love to listen to her. Going on discussing by our the merits of lovelock's poems an analyzing her feelings and those of a to ancestors it was quite wonderful to watch exquisite exotic creature in one of these moods with the distant look in her eyes and the absence looking smile in her thin cheeks. Talking as if she had intimately known these people of the seventeenth century discussing every minute mood of there's detailing every scene between them and the victim talking of alison nicholas and lovelock as she might have her most intimate friends of alice particularly and the wlac. She seemed to know every word that elicits spoken every idea that had crossed her mind. It sometimes struck me as if you were telling me speaking of herself in the third person of her own feelings as if i were listening to a woman's confidences the recital of doubts scruples in agonies about a living lover but mrs oak who seemed the most self absorbed of creatures in other matters and utterly incapable of understanding or sympathizing with the feelings of other persons entered completely and passionately into the feelings of this woman. This alice who.

"She's beautiful and she said. I talked to her pretty frequently. She's friends with Ruby rose. They're actually absences and she did Demi Levato in the past really cool so I talked to her. Sometimes when I first started my account Ariana Grande shared one of my pose and I did get like a few hundred followers that but it was before I started watermarking. My content solid kick myself so hard for that. I I wonder if like if she shared one of your things and a lot of her followers are straight and they were just like very confused. Yeah well I do like a decent amount of straight followers. A LOT OF GAY GUYS. Follow me which is interesting. Yeah I've seen you post like drag race images. Yeah sometimes I'll get messages from like six straight men and they're like I love reading this content like it turns me on so much and I'm like oh wow. It doesn't take much for them. Of all of all the levels of lesbian content for men to objectify memes would be the last resort told me that him and his girlfriend like read them together to like get turned on and I was like first of all shame on her. What is wrong with this strip? Oh my gosh like you know. I just always assumed that men didn't like win. Women made them laugh. So you're doing both you're making us laugh and think and they're still getting turned on. Stop it it's bad. We talked about people you know maybe taking issue with you using their image but what about like the content itself. Do you get like backlash connor. And we do you deal with that. I know I'm so curious about this. Because Yeah we obviously also get a lot of feedback for things on taking out or there are a lot of things where I get like so nervous about. I'm like maybe we added that out of episode or whatever and then tried to mind fully with people but sometimes it seems like Oh. This person doesn't want to engage. They just want to be angry or they just want to police me. How do you deal with that advice? Please I sometimes I engage in it. Sometimes I just people some because I am in the wrong. I'm not perfect. I'm still learning. We're all doing our best. I hate when people say that like liberals are so easily offended like that kind of mentality but sometimes I do think that people are so easily offended. I could make a mean that says gay people ice coffee and someone would be like. Actually I prefer hot coffee right right. People just want to take things personally and also distort what I said but I mean I just think of it as okay. They have a different set of experiences. Have led them to reading this. And you know maybe they're interpreting it completely differently. Who Am I say? So sometimes I engage with it. Sometimes I don't a lot of the time my followers do you know duke it out in the comments people so because like the thing with memes like. I want to hear from you. What you think makes makes good mean but from my perspective. It's having something feel relatable and to have something be relatable you have to make sweeping generalizations. So it'll be like lesbians be like this and then and then you'll have someone that's leg no. I'm a lesbian and I like. How dare you further the stereotype or something like that? And it's like well. This is how we have fun in. This is how we joked like to be able to make a mem- be funny. Hasn't make some type of sweeping generalization rain. Yeah and that's you know what can access. Sometimes I'll post something that I feel like it's so neat and so just a personal experience of mine and people will be like. Oh No that's all you like. The only person who's gone through that which I can't even think of any examples when you hate a secret love that's caroline you monster. I posted something about how I thought it was easier to shave my cubes on the toilet and I was like everyone's going to think I'm a freak for this but so many people in the congress were like. Hey I do that to often weird and I was like wow. Maybe I'm not as weird as I think I am. So it's just like it's realizing that we are so similar dispenser differences. Yeah I feel like it can go both ways right like if you're if you're being like very honest about something that's very true to you. Then it's probably me true to other people and they'll be like Oh my God yes me to or you see something that like might not be true for you but you recognize it as being an experience that people you know have and then you can laugh about that exactly so what does make a good meam like when when do you like come with one near like this. One is fire okay. So that's what's hard about it because the ones I put so much effort into You know sometimes I'll spend over an hour On my phone just like perfecting museum. Those ones get maybe a couple of thousand likes and then one like the one that Rubio shared where was like dot Geisha. And it'll be like twelve thousand Mike and I'm like really I should just put no effort into this. Yeah that's my relationship with twitter. Yeah exactly yeah. I could be like my poops R. Regular and then it's like three thousand retweets or something and then like my very well-crafted clever joke that I'm patting myself on the back about gets to like seem. Yeah it's so frustrating. I don't know I guess. I like content that engages the viewers of like tag yourself. If this applies this is such a new kind of art form in a way. There's not like me or names for the different types of means like tag yourself they're just like labeling things but like ven diagram and your you didn't have any type of social media background or anything like that right like this was just like a passion project you're like. I like means I'm not getting enough of the memes I want so I'm going to create it. Yeah I mean I feel like my social media. Background is just being addicted to the Internet. I would go on the computer every day since I was like six or seven so then it transition to be on my phone every day which ever is social media has always been my Go-to I like to learn new things and connect with people so I actually had a tumbler. High School that I think I had like thirteen thousand followers on it which isn't like obviously a time but I feel like for Tom. Learn inlets because have it was pretty good. Yeah but I had no experience with growing my instagram at all. So I mean you talk about how you don't have much of a community like L. in Erie Pennsylvania but have you like a formed consistent relationships like I know for Daikin Out. There are certain listeners that we have a reporter with who have been like reaching out to us from the beginning in sending messages and that kind of stuff so there are some listeners that I can definitely like identify. Yeah right away. Do you have that relationship with your followers? And then there are quite a few queer me. Mors content creators that interact with the account. Gay Girl Incur Names Wendy We're pretty close friends. She lives in California though. So we've never met the. Hopefully eventually we will. Yeah I've started to see actually queer me makers I collaborate on memes. Kind of becoming a thing. I love that. How do you make sure that you're not stepping on each other's toes or anything like that like I know that before? I tweet something very paranoid. I'm like Oh as everybody else likes tweeting this or like the few times that I've tried to make memes a Mike. Has this been done already in my stealing someone else's thought and not knowing it you know. I feel like it's a very supportive communities. So if someone does get inspired by someone else's idea they'll usually credit the other person and the caption area and say this person inspired me or this is like a spin off of this post but I feel like you know so many of our jokes are just like reiterations of like GonNa Bring the U. Haul of on the second date like some of the jokes are just so like prominent in our community that obviously they're going to be made more than once right right. I feel like I'd only and other people would only be really offended. Few literally stole someone else's image. Same exact taxed and lock your name on. It is what I was stealing without. Crediting yeah the FAT Jewish fat Jewish. Okay so I was on the documentary. I just watched yeah. He was going as far as cropping out. Original like twitter's names and superimposing his handle on top of like that's going too far and I. I think I watched that documentary like last year. Or whenever it came out and a lot of people do you have like counts where they do share people's tweets or facebook status or whatever but I feel like it takes so much more effort to make your own content like I could easily just post other people's tweets all day and have three point two million followers like he like I don't know how many has but that can easily be done but actually making new content is really hard sometimes. Yours doesn't seem like it's easy to steal. It seems really specific to the hot mess band brand. Yeah like you have your. You're kind of style going. Yeah I feel like a lot of it is just my tone of voice the way I speak in you know I have like a style for how I edit the images and I try to be like. I'm such a perfectionist. I deleted one of my post the other day. And I like re upload it and they were like what did you do that? You changed it because I mentioned in the caption that I changed it. I was like I don't I don't want to admit to you that I didn't like the color of white. That options like I bet that particular about it. Yeah so what's your sign. What do you think it is because I thought that was very earth sign thing to do but I'm a cancer stun an aries moon and then I have a capricorn rising so that might be capricorn. Rising COMING RECORD ASK. I'm constantly deleting like tweets the second after I post them in like re uploading them with a new comma position. Always some accounts where people are actual like graphic designers and their posts are so like their means are so beautiful and I just kind of slopped. Some texts onto oppose. But I feel like like I said before the more effort I put into it the less recognition. It gets so not GonNa Change what I'm doing at the moment because obviously works alright. Let's pause the Combo for a quick word from our sponsor best fiends. It is a casual mobile game that I just started playing and I'm already at level fifty it is about a world that's overrun by the patriarchy. And you have to use members of the LGBTQ plus community to defeat it okay It's actually a cute world overrun by slugs and you can collect these fun. Little insects called fiends to fight them off but they can represent whatever you want them to so. There are lots of puzzles and challenges along the way and I love that I can play it without the Internet so that I can keep advancing levels while riding the subway and it is just very fun and a cool way to pass the time..

Does Vancouver need to start turning tourists away?

The Big Story

Does Vancouver need to start turning tourists away?

"Vancouver is a very nice city to visit. If you've ever been you don't need me to tell you that. In fact nobody needs to tell them that in fact Vancouver itself would probably prefer. I didn't tell people that the city's tourism industry industry is booming so much so that rather than ask themselves how to keep attracting guests. The city is wondering how to ask visitors to maybe stay. Stay at a place a little bit Outta town. Maybe go somewhere anywhere other than the marquee attractions like Stanley Park. There's no doubt that ten million visitors per year can do some great things for a cities economy but what Canada's most picturesque city is facing now. Is these same leg that has come for some of the oldest list and most popular destinations and the world. There is such a thing as too many visitors. So how does Vancouver politely say actually were full right now it becomes back later in the offseason Jordan. Rawlings this is the big story. Molly mccloskey is based in Washington. DC and she's a contributor at city lab among other outlets and she Ended up going wing to Vancouver to report this story today. Molly can you start by telling us how you came across the story. Well I love Ann Cooper. I've spent a fair amount of time there and I'm based on the West Coast states states now although still spend a fair amount of time DC. And so I was elected as a media scholar for the women deliver conference which is a massive international women's rights and family. The conference is held every couple of years and this year it was hoover and so as I was coming up to Vancouver I kind of reached out to the Tourism Board and smother contacts in the area and said you know what's really going on in your town that I should know about as reporter a somebody coming to visit. Who maybe want to see something that I haven't seen before? And as as a result of that conversation the person I was speaking with mentioned almost as an aside will you know we. We really don't promote Vancouver much in the summer anymore and I thought that was such a fascinating knitting idea because you know the tourism boards by their very nature. Their job is to bring people to town right. We see that all around the world and the idea that there are some places that are maxing out on what they can with either can or want to accommodate tourism. Wise was really fascinating to me. We'll do you have an idea of the scope of that leg. Just how did tourism do I guess in Vancouver in two thousand nineteen well. The latest numbers aren't finalized. Of course but when I spoke to them they were expecting ten million visitors In Vancouver in two thousand nineteen they were expecting about two hundred thirty cruise ships to come in and of course when you look at cruise ships versus other forms of tourism. It's a little bit different. Because cruise ship passengers don't necessarily stay in the hotels they may be. Don't necessarily elite at all. The restaurants like other drawers might so it's a little bit of a different beast but still I mean two hundred and thirty very large cruise ships Over the course of the year and and up to ten million visitors coming to Vancouver alone is a pretty dramatic flux of tourists. No matter how you look at it is that number increasing generally over the last little while for Vancouver. It is actually and Vancouver. This summer are expected to be at ninety five percent capacity which for the city that means for cities in general that means really looking at how often the hotels are booked how often restaurants overcrowded with the capacity of special events and things like the women deliver conference how many people that's bringing into the city and if the rate of services such as transit ed or taxis or rideshare which has just launched in Vancouver if they can keep up and keep people moving in a even steady daddy non dramatic flow. That was going to be my next question is do we know. Kind of how approaching capacity impacts the day to day life of a city. Yes we do actually and we seen it in backlash Around around the world really. It's it's really a global tourism boom and keep in mind too that so so many cities depend on tourism as a huge part of their economy. Right and so and that goes back to you know when we were all hunters and gatherers authors and then switched over to an agrarian society and really suddenly started having more and creating more than we needed to consume for ourselves cities of always accommodated or expected to accommodate visitors. Four things like trade as they popped up on trade routes and rivers that sort of thing so this idea of tourism mhm has in some way shape or form existed as long as we've had this idea of cities but as you look at places like Venice or Amsterdam or Barcelona where there's just just too many. There's too many people coming to the scene. Few attractions We've seen in some cases like New York City and Ellis island where the tourists worse. That are coming aren't necessarily very mannerly The rise in social media and instagram and and this idea of I need to get the perfect shot as opposed to you. Experience the perfect sunset or visit. The Perfect Museum has also changed the way that we travel and experience the places that we go to keep in mind too. That tourism in general is very trendy so when I was living in Croatia I lived in the summer before Chris joined the EU the summer joined the EU and the summer after and suddenly Zagreb was the hot spot for tourists and so everybody was there and that immediately impacted things like services for residents and the prices of things things and whether or not there were apartments available at reasonable rates or foreign investors. Buying them up all the time Vancouver had a similar instance where a lot of people were buying properties that they were not living in and keeping them as investment properties. So all of these things when you when you upset the balance of a city for its residents residents that occasionally accommodates tourists versus city that is dependent on tourism to support its residents. It's a different dynamic namic and that's something that cities around the world are really having to grapple with as they are seeing more and more people traveling what kind of actual evidence Did you see in Vancouver. Did they tell you about just in terms of its impact on popular landmarks or the city in general. And what have other places around around the world done to curb some of that Eighty million people lined up for the same instagram shot. While if you take an instance like Quarry Rock in North Van which I love northbound I I climbed the grouse grind a couple years ago and fell and got experience Canadian. Healthcare there's ever in Vancouver but if you look at something acquire rock. which was you know? E- community hiking trail. It was a place that the locals new. They'd spend a Saturday and suddenly became. I'm an international destination and so you had very large tour buses trying to cram into parking lots that were really just meant for locals and for sedans the ends Maybe a minivan or to The the trail getting to the trail. There's lots of gridlock. There was community tension. This idea of we're being invaded by people that are not in our town. I feel that way. It caused a lot of tension and so they put in their new parking harking laws or when he finds their overflow areas they would the locals who put up signs that basically said like the trial had is full like you. This is not the day for you to come to the trail head and as a result of working with the locals the team at Tourism Vancouver finally said okay. You know what we agree.

"perfect museum" Discussed on WLS-AM 890

"Mornings on WLS Mankato sixty nine now that we have a new governor. I think you can get up to around four hundred people a day leaving with all the new taxes plant nine government by media. Now, it's the cable network intelligence heads cable, it's horrible. Rush limbaugh. Eleven to two is not about what's best for feed, liberalism is purely and simply about the acquisition and holding a power of a Cup of coffee or ten W L S AM eight nine hundred Chicago's news and talk, but she's going to talk about the wall or the Democrats Republicans shut down so long. And then eventually after to say there must be something else. A little bit more local we could discuss and that's around onto right now before we get that story. However, Bret Baier did make a statement at the top of his shell says Jen, and I were just talking about this this accident he and his family got into out in Montana. Here's Bret Baier just minutes ago on Fox News, very special report is coming up a cypress. Or is Brett good to see you. Thanks. Dana is very good to be here. Thank you to everyone for their thoughts and prayers my family's all doing. Okay. I will have more thank yous. And why we feel so blessed and are squeezing our kids a little tighter tonight. Later in the show and buckle up and back to work for Bret Baier has his his want. So the statue of Joe DiMaggio has now been taken out a little Italy as the national Italian American Museum plans to move to Rosemont and some say taking the statue of jolting Joe and the Yankee clipper out of little Italy is like removing the Puerto Rican flags from humble park. One leader said it is most repugnant kind of reminds me a little bit when daily shutdown me because I don't know if they did in the middle of night. But it was certainly a surprise and carved a big X in the runway while I'm daily. Yes. I don't know if they took the Joe DiMaggio. You all got that you out of little Italy in the middle of the night. But let's talk to one of the community leaders down there. Bryan, bear Doni. Brian, welcome WLS. I saw this article at blocked clubs Chicago dot org, which does a terrific job covering news stories that are nor by some of the bigger papers and the networks here in town. So. So why do you think the the statue? Joe DiMaggio should be left in little Italy. When the rest of the museum kinda lost their lease. And they may be going to rozema. Well, it's it's it's you can imagine. The folks that put a Buckingham fountain in grand park said you know, what we want it back. I mean, this is kind of the the idea that goes on with public partner public private partnerships that the city is engaged in for nearly a hundred years, and the public private partnership was the only reason why the the Piazza which is called the Joe DiMaggio Piazza, which is located at Bishop street and Taylor was put there in the first place, and the neighbors the neighbors had to agree to alternate that that street, so they could put the statue up there. And at that point, you think well, this is public domain very much. So the street went from a through street to a cul de sac street and new sidewalks curbs gutters lighting, new water pipes as well as a median was put in there. So the so the neighbor babyhood felt that they were getting something else out of not including the Piazza. The whole reason why the Piazza was put there was for the national telling you to work in sports. But the Joe DiMaggio statue was part of a public private partnership to city USA cargo that's maintain that property for over twenty years budget, line items were shifted and change in order to to accommodate a statue of magnificence and also create a very public public place. Joe DiMaggio was there for its initial to its initial celebration. And then his brother Dominic one per saucer was there as well as Muhammad Ali and others when we finally built the national telling about sports hall of fame and got that. Yeah. What a beautiful building. That is. It's such a shame that the landlord decided they'd do something else with that building. Because I thought it was the perfect place for the perfect museum. Yeah. John vinci. A noted a noted Chicago architect design that building marble, its marble and granite. It's a beautiful building in an incredibly beautiful two year. And when you confiscate a statue in the middle of the night, practically don't give notice the stakeholders, you don't have any kind of community meeting, and you say that well, you know. Rosemont if I were Rosemont I'd be concerned because a couple of years if the hall of fame doesn't work out there are they gonna take it to Palatine. Are they going to take it to homework line? This was the the Italian American hall of fame used to be on ninety. I used to pan was at rolling meadows because I used to pass their buying then one day it was gone from that location as well. Lincoln heights tonight's. Yes, that's right. So they're attorney Enrico Mirabella, Mr. mirabal is on the board of directors for the national talion American sports hall of fame said also the general counsel, as I mentioned, he said that statue it was on loan. It doesn't belong to the hall of fame. Well, I think there's gonna be a paper trail that has to be looked at about and some precedents. That's going to have to be taken into account. And I think everyone needs to do the hard work that's needed to go through the files of what the city did. And what the deal was with the city in order to put their plaza there. I think just to go with a someone's work without a statement without without any any collaborating. Evidence is is something that needs to be discussed. But the bigger thing that I would suggest in wild. There's a discussion about who owns it or how it was gotten their public private partnerships don't happen unless there's an and the statue was there. But the fact that the statue was taken away without any public buildings any conversation with the community is is really repugnant. And you know, it it's just not good for to replace it with anything else. No, I and I helped a lot of respect for so record known him for many years in for the hall of fame. And I understand the the trouble that they've been trying to get things going the right way from themselves, and hopefully, whatever they ended up doing most of them in the right direction. But taking the statue way. It's it's it's going to create a bigger problem for the community than some things just got a huge granite base. That was created for Joe DiMaggio. In just putting something else. There is just. You can't just remove humidity icon, which is what that was. That was something that was used humidity marketing, and otherwise and just take it away and say, well, we're gonna it didn't work out here. So we're gonna take our toys and leave. This sounds like John casts Callum to me. Well. What John's editors with them on if it was a statue of the famous guy from Greece. You can you can bet John castle beyond this already. Well, you know, we're we're from the same part of the same part of the world. So hopefully, there's some attention coach. But I would I would hope that it does indicate this this whole sad. Experience indicates the importance of a place communities in the hall of fame. And that statue was a part of a great source of pride for people in the community. I'm really I'm really disappointed. That's twelve million dollar billion was so beautiful and granted as you mentioned marble, and it was just it was a beautiful Bill. I'm sorry that they had to move. And you know, they say in the article the said blocked club, Chicago dot org. They say the community the community didn't support the museum they had to go. Well, the twin didn't support it in the beginning. But the whole team was an integral part of the community as executive director. And engineer it was an it's all part of marketing and bringing more attention to Taylor. Street being a historic pathway for Italians coming into Chicago to get their start in Iraq on a day. Like today when the little Italy library, the new Chicago public library branch is being designated. And when you help the announcement of hall of famers getting that we're discussing such a a a difficult story like Joe DiMaggio statue being removed. And I'm sorry. I'm sorry to see a goal. I think I know mayor Stevens, I don't know him personally. But I met him a couple times been against do know him personally. But I know that he's always looking to put new sort of, you know, a tourist attractions in in Rosemont, and I think they'll probably do a nice job out there. But I'm sorry to leave little Italy. That was the perfect place. Well, I think the thing that people should be aware of is the community is meeting on this issue. They hit meetings last night, and they're going to continue to meet to get some determination on how they wanna move. But work shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii. Hey, which is the really be the Italian American in the near west side of Chicago where Columbus Day launches and and other cultural Venzke up, and they've been organizing and discussing this at length, I can tell you personally, it's a very difficult situation because maybe we can have two statues. Maybe maybe the Italian American hall of fame will say, well, we're going to put it back, and we'll get a replica or another one to put him in the hall in Rosemont. If that's where it's going to be. Well, I any alternatives would be good. But I think the hall of fame needs to at least address the community concerns and talk openly about what happened in where they came to this decision in in the trust. Why they didn't talk to the neighbors to the business people and two other saying this is what we're doing. And why I think that would have at least a proper community into some level of not questioning, but they would have gotten into the healing process. Well, we stirred we've stirred the pot now. And w we'll see if we can't get some. Moving on us. And we'll have you back with an update as warranted. Okay. John. Thank you very much and good luck with the new shift. Thanks, thanks, Brian. That's Brian bear Doni. Colonists from Taylor street or little Italy. Who's quite upset over the statue of Joe DiMaggio. Being supposedly moved to a Rosemont coming on next day.
