Fire alarm goes off from the exhaust from the gun because he was firing so rapidly and they start down the stairwells now. I didn't leave boy. Oh boy i knew exactly what was going on downstairs.

Beagle taught geometry across the hall from qin students on the third floor. Were confused when the fire alarm went off and some went into the hallway thinking they should follow fire drill protocol then. Once hearing gunfire they realized what was happening. Scott risked his life when he went into the hallway to hold the door open for them. He was shot and killed. As the gunman came onto the third floor. He runs out of bullets and has to drop clip and put one in. I mean like literally we can hear it ping in the floor in front of us right because he's near my alcove for my door my door while in one of my kids says something he goes. I think he's reloading. I'm like oh talk. Look don't say anything. He continues on the hallway. Scott beagle has already been shot and killed at this point. Meadow is still alive.

Were you trained for you. Were you've been trained in this. I've been through a simulation before. I tell him to the corner. I ended up being a little aggressive. I said i'll give a f. If one of you gets pregnant kit. Sure a in the corn and a couple of kids will be like. That's exactly what we knew that something was going on. that's terrifying. Yeah him managed to keep all twenty five students in her class safe. A student from another class anthony borges was injured. Shot in the hallway but alive. They heard him but couldn't do anything to help cam in her students didn't know of. The shooter was out of the building or holding him hostage. She let her students texts their parents to keep things quiet. Finally at three forty pm. The police knocked on her door an ask him to open it. The students were escorted single. File down the stairs and of the building. They walk past the dead bodies of their fellow classmates and a teacher. The deceased were not removed into late that night and the next morning they had to clear out my building i because they weren't sure who to triage and then they had to bring in. Csi to start marketing bodies and stuff. Walk me through. How did the school district and the county responded the students and staff after the shooting so the alumni association for marjory stoneman. Douglas right puts together this whole like we got to help these kids. How could this possibly happen. I mean i'm not kidding. They literally took the best care of us but the way that they like could communicate with each other. Keep their posts coming forward. They used hashtag m s. Sd strong so the county picks up on that immediately. I mean they made us t shirts everything became. We are msg strong. It was part of our announcements explained. The msg strong people are like. We were trying to help. I understand that mobilizing ms ms alumni were trying to get that hashtag so that they could talk to each other. Here's my biggest problem with all of that. Is that hashtag. Really sorry. it's okay then. Hashtag normalized school shooting to the bruise lake. Nobody should normalize that. That's not normal. That's not normal running for your life. That's not normal. No kids should ever think that that like okay. 'cause people would be like will you went through something very difficult but boy. Oh boy you came out of it like a cheap when something really bad happens and everybody's like wow you're doing so great then you can't say to that person no not right like like what. What's the human response. Oh thank you so much like. i'm.

Something difficult no getting. Fourteen hundred on your. Sat's is difficult right walking over somebody that you just had lunch with a couple of hours ago. I just hated the fact that everybody was like. Look at these. Douglas kids man. They just got it so he handled and so the kids that were falling apart. The kids that were in my classroom crying or having a hard time or needed somebody to talk to or or started using drugs like there wasn't any attention for them. There wasn't anything left Administration kept leaning on us to get back to normal. They put up a banner outside. When i get. I get back to school the very first day.

Peter wang from holden maine writes in wanna finally got one. Thanks to my daughter for having me watch this forty seven times. Yeah i just picked a couple here. Because peter and michelle walters in mchenry illinois really spoke for a lot of our entrance. She says moana as someone who has a toddler that was obsessed with this movie for roughly six months. I was doing the dialogue along with joshua. Here's bailey l. From bill ricca. That scene is the first interaction between the titular character. And dwayne johnson's maui. In two thousand sixteen small anna the name change to doyle is a reference to johnson's role in joshua's beloved pain and gain so beloved. The tien is the upcoming some release of f.

This week is the twentieth anniversary of the shrek debut. Which was the first winner of the animated best picture oscar. Shrek success later forced disney to take risks again in making animated films. Shrek was also josh. Larson's number two film of two thousand and one and josh hadn't seen you post yourself aback when scott tobias. Aw friend from the next picture show. Is the main character on twitter for about thirty six hours because of his takedown twentieth anniversary. Take down. I think in the guardian of shrek men who knew there was so much passion for it. If i hadn't seen you post the proof of it i would have said. This is just tom. Having a laugh. Sounds like something you didn't but but would you really put it at number. Two i did that was such fun. Scott just you know doing the lord's work defending the cinema from shrek. that was clearly yes Apparently that was necessary. It's true it is. It is true. Now in retrospect Here we go. I will defend myself by saying that. The number one film. I think that aged a little better. My number one pick a i artificial intelligence. You know. I think people have come around On the genius of that spielberg kubrick collaboration. Shrek you know. I mean i probably i probably wouldn't. In retrospect put it above the royal tenenbaums. My number three above the man. Who wasn't there. Which i just revisited and is so good. The coen brothers film. Maybe not above memento moulin rouge has come up in our poll. I had that on my top ten. I still think it's better than monkey. Bone my number nine film of two thousand one. You can see what you're dealing with here all right. We're we're in alternative josh universe. Yeah yeah where. I like to live. I've just a laughing. Because i wish people could have seen of just ahead move. You made when you said shrek. Maybe not there was just something about the physicality of that that match your voice. That was wonderful. And i'm also going to say i stand by shrek. I am here. I am joining the hordes to take down scott tobias less time you watched it. Probably the last time i watched it was when our daughter was being born in the hospital because it was the one movie we brought to distract us. We didn't get very far into it for whatever reason we grabbed shrek. Okay screener of shrek. On the way to the hospital that later duress it held up it well the however far we got the ed line k pretty quickly. She was a good kid. Didn't didn't make way too long so we didn't get too far into shrek. I don't think it was probably true to say. It's the number two film of the year. But i do think it's a good movie. I think it's very funny. And i think it's taken a ton of heat for decades of really incredibly poor imitators which is not always fair to hold up against the original. So that's that's my our little shrek detour for this week's show sacred ogre review of shrek. Josh is coming. Or what is he a troll. What is he's an ogre right ogre. Yes adam so a sacred ogre review.

"20 the telephone number 6108 50 09 90 Our buddy Victor Fiorillo was On fire yesterday. I'm going to try to secure him for the show this morning. He got in on some some questions. Where the toilets are The mayor of Philadelphia, by the way, deemed the most restrictive. Lockdown orders in the country this morning. So congratulations, Philadelphia Mayor Kenny has enacted the most restrictive lockdown measures. Nationwide. That has deemed by by Fox News Mere moments ago. I was just monitoring during the break. So Victor got in a couple of shots. You could You just know how much this ticks the toilets are off that these plebs their question him and Victor offering some editorial comment in the question, Mayor You have the security of a taxpayer funded job. And obviously the news that you're announcing here today. Eyes going to severely impact the lives of in the financial situations for countless people in the Philadelphia area. The city has raised a lot of money in the past for covert relief. How much of that is available? And are there any new initiatives underway? And what kind of assistance are you able to offer? Everybody from? The owner of the small restaurant to the bartender who shifts haircuts were eliminated altogether. First of all the the elimination of anyone's job is a extreme difficulty and people's lives. I also think the dying of covert is an extreme result of not doing what we need to do now. See that false choice that straw dog argument that these little despot's Always make Well, it's unfortunate that anyone who would lose their job, but it's worse if you die. As though that's the only choice. Continue working concerning to continue running your business or die. I'll take it to curb back down and flatten it out and get us back to some semblance of normal again. Get the curve. Back down and flatten it out. Did you know that the curve had rise risen? Did you know that? I didn't know that? By the way, Monday's covert 19 cases, cases, cases, cases, cases cases. That's a stupid word. I'm tired of the word. The word the C word. Is now no longer the C word to me. It's a new C word cases too stupid word. Anybody that uses the word is stupid. Anybody that uses the word cases is an unserious person that needs to be dismissed and ignored. Immediately. Cases cases cases means nothing and by the way, 4400 cases yesterday in Pennsylvania, not Philadelphia in the entirety of the Commonwealth, who 4400 cases. What does that even mean cases. Somebody tested positive for it. Could go to CBS right now and test for positive for it and feel fine. Cases. Cases cases cases. Have announced up. We've done some Money for people have lost their lost their jobs were getting their words words never have to speak publicly or talk to people who asked me questions here. We have a constraint budget begin with. We've got about 6% of the cares dollars that the state got with about 12% of the population, so we will be looking to try to get that increased. I think the worst part of it is he's not even smart, like when you listen to him. He's not even an intellectually smart person. I mean, you can't He doesn't have a command of the English language. He doesn't have a command of facts He's just used to running around. Barking orders. And celebrating his little Tin horn liberal victories. He's never questioned. So when he actually gets a question from people like our friend, Victor Furillo, he just sputters and stammered, much like his slope shouldered, mediocre compatriot there in Harrisburg, Tom Wolfe. They don't know how they're not really bright men. They are really by definition mediocre. They don't know how to formulate thoughts and sentences and communicating articulate them. We're hoping that that Congress sooner or later, probably sooner we'll go about providing a L a package. The American people to deal with this issue. We cannot simply as a city handle this ourselves. You know, no one is asking you to handle anything. No one's asking the city to handle anything. People are asking. Be able to handle themselves and their businesses as they see fit. From the Enquirer. Restaurant owners see Phillies new Indoor dining ban is the final blow. Restaurant tours have spent thousands of dollars, retrofitting their dining rooms and building outdoor seating areas to balance the rules governing safety against the need for commerce. But yesterday, city officials announced they would roll back the modest concessions granted over the last several months. An effective Friday they will eliminate indoor dining altogether. Limit outdoor tables. Two parties of four and those four have to live in the same household. Peter Huang. Restaurant owner of South Gate in Philadelphia, said I don't know how we're going to determine who is in the same household. It's beyond our scope. Maybe the threat will make enough people not do it. Oh, I hope Peter Wang has got his affairs in order. The Gestapo would Philadelphia If they read this He's entertaining insurrection. Maybe the threat will make enough people not do it. You know what they're calling this by the way. This new initiative. We're back to this again, just like we were in the spring. It's like the spring didn't even happen. Do you know what they're calling it safer at home? I kid? You not. That's what they're naming this stupid thing safer at home. It's like nothing ever happened. They completely rewound the tape and we're starting back in March. It may as well be March 16th. Instead of her 17th. Seriously. What's the difference between November 17th and March? 17th of this year? As Per these guidelines laid out by the toilets are yesterday. Can you name it? In fact, I would argue it's worse. Now. In March, 17th and we know volumes more than we knew. March 17th. Eight months later. It's more restrictive. It's.

"And I come from the physics computational physics background, , and we both kind of been pushed into this. . Data. . All data science and I don't know if that is coincidence or if we have an affinity for them before we get into that though this kind of competing view of the world, , which basically says sequel can do everything and this one we spent a lot of time actually looking at the data science or the data landscape and it feels like there's two worlds there's like the data warehouse maximalists. . We'll stick all date on the data warehouse and then we're GonNa do sequel and then we're GonNa have some extensions to sequel like you see popping up like big query whatever and that can do everything needs to be done, , and Oh by the way if someone's using python and are all, , they're doing basic regressions and so we can just make that a simple extension and we're done and then there's the other view of the world I like to call the hoop refugees which is. . Actually, , we do hardcore computation and we need our in python because of stuff we do is very sophisticated. . I I know you're squarely on one side of those but I wonder like, , do you think there's a convergence that happens these stay two worlds does one become a relevant like what happens there just because you oppose extremism doesn't make you an extremist, , right David? How's ? maximum? ? I see this world and it's the old yarn about I guess, , I. . Don't know there's there's so many variants of this but Allen Parlous a great computer scientists has some really great quotes about somebody Reverend sees about these kinds of things but I would say that to the idea that everything be expressing sequel. . which sequel with how many extensions because the end of the day and with how many like extensions on extensions and multicolored on your post grass? ? Pipe, , colonel, , I guess you're doing the sequel, , but you're running a python script knows let's not really don't count and frankly a lot of stuff runs access and BB in this world isn't sequel I think if you choose to look at the world through a particular Lens, , you can choose to count everything else as. . And rounding errors. . But if you take off those lands as you see a much more diverse landscape and I think that's where for me, I , see the space for sequel I understand the reasons why it has evolved into particular kind of animal like the shark is still the best predatory fish in the ocean. . But it's not the biggest Predator in the world and I think there's something about that that if you're in the ocean, , you're going basically shark like if you're to eat a lot of fish. . So if you're in that business data analytics world especially because a lot of business data looks like fish, , it's evolved look like food for the sharks. . So that's kind of the way it is but what Hoodoo opened. . Up Back in twenty twelve I called it the hoodoo battering Ram as we're not GonNa win the Hoop Gate. . We'll let the vendors go and fight against the Tara's the oracles, , all the classical data warehouse guys let them do that thing. . Once he battered down the door, , we're GONNA come flooding in with all sorts of heterogenous approaches to data science analytics, , things that are hard to ask in sequel. . And Moreover, , there's a term use which I don't hear used very often now obviously or the shadow it, , which is used it, , but there's a shadow data management that's a are far more serious and dangerous problem when I was at an messing bank, , they had a million dollar oracle database sitting somewhere and it was too slow to actually run the analytics they needed, , and so what they did is they had an instance of this oracle database cost a million bucks and what they did is the only quarry they ran was a bit full table dump into a CS meet and then they took CSV. . And they did everything else with it and it was python scripts Ram Java. . Crap was bunch of other stuff and it was sort of like. . So if you're a data manager, , if you're like in the data management practice, , you say, , well, , we have another big old million dollar instance stood up our data management techniques are great <unk> Potemkin village against right. . But then when you actually go and you ask the developers, , Hey, , where's the source data for the stuff whereas prod data coming from? ? Like, , oh. . Yeah. . This file share back slash black slash something or the other or you know that I'll I'm like that file what about database don't touch the database to Brennan right so there's this kind of stuff going on in everybody listens knows what I'm talking about that shadow dated management is absolutely a pernicious problem and data science is just eating it alive because did ask the question you want to ask you have to integrate us together master data management is about silence <unk>. . And all this stuff you've hit to the site which I just think it's so Germane to what we're here to talk about, , which is this clearly problem domains which sequels totally fine for right Yep and you can argue the problem domains, , which is just not any sort of hardcore statistics is just not very good for and the point of us being on this podcast is actually talk about like listen we're kind of new types of companies and you types of workloads. . And they're around kind of processing data and I hear you that this shadow data management is a real issue and you can make an argument why that exists because people are stupid or they don't WanNa do good workflows is like literally we don't have the tooling to deal with data in the right way. . One question that I have that I would love to hash out with you is are we a fundamental shift in workload that requires a fundamentally new set of tools? ? And a fundamentally new type of company or is this just more of a transition where we can kind of put into service the old tools and I just want to be a little bit more specific, , which has in the past you had your toolkit of systems approaches and you have software system, , and you'd kind of pull them out and applied to the problem the sequels, , one of them, , and we kind of understood how systems behavior and we kind of understood how the company's both around the behaves. . As an investor looking at a lot of data companies, , they just don't look the same types of tools they use the type of operational practice they use. . The one that you pointed out was a great one, , which is outdated becomes a primitive what actually apply like software techniques to in a way, but , we don't have the tools to do that. . and. . Then we've written posts about margin structures look a lot different where you go at your company different and so I just do you think this mess is because data scientists don't have formal S-. . Yes trainings or do you think this is an entirely different problem domain and we should actually look at what the future looks like for that and development. . Tools, , etc. . This is at the heart of Oprah talking about this is absolutely the heart and I will try to start from the top, , which is this concept that every baby or every child is born and the reason that they think their childhood is normal right? ? They think of like your childhood like normal thing. . So have developers coming online in late two. . Thousands let's say and they think this is the world even me as a professional starting in ninety nine while this was just what there is the more you start researching history and looking back your life. . You know what? ? We're just building in this industry, , which is layer it's frozen accident on top of frozen accident frozen accident very very few times do. . People. . Make principled intentional revolutionary shifts. . Right? ? It's. . He basically band-aid a substrate. . Okay. . So starting from the top, , what I would say is that there is no law there was nothing hard in stone that Moses brought down from the mountain said all information systems must be deconstructed into hardware and software and data there's no such thing it was information systems will stop. . The fact that we had different cost structures for innovation in hardware versus software versus networking, , and so forth. . That has led to different rates of innovation different places, , things like that, , and so when a business steps in and says, okay, , , what's on the shelf that I can use to accelerate my business processes? ? Then it makes sense because this thing that thing like when you buy a car, , you buy the car and then you put CDs in the car you don't go by car with a CD prefect

"We are talking to Pat LIAM's vice president of the Orlando Magic. Orlando maggots. That's weird. The Orlando Magic, my apologies pack. We've been talking to him about his latest book that he co authored with Jim Denney called character. Carved in stone, the twelve Korver choose of West Point that build leaders and produce success. It really isn't one another history book and thanks for sticking around a little bit longer. Pat. These twelve virtues carved in stone starts with compassion chapter one. And you tell us about you, Liz, s grant a warrior with a heart and his compassion when it came to horses will carry we we were member grad, you know, as as an intense warrior, you know, who ultimately will lead the union victory in the civil war. You don't really think of compassion. But he did he had a he had a great heart for his soldiers. He had a great compassion and his family had a wonderful marriage and compassion towards those people, and he was a horseman. You know, he he was a excellent horsemen at West Point. And you know in back in those days in the war. Everybody was on horseback. Well, one day, he's riding his horse doubt a trail and sees one of his men off to the side just a whipping his horse feeding him, and and you know, just tacking this horse for some reason will grant was extremely angry. What over to that soldier and threatened him to within an inch of his life? If he ever saw him through treating again like that boy, it wasn't gonna be a pretty sight. And he he he had compassionate love for the horses as much as he did for his men that was I think that caught a side of grad, perhaps that we've overlooked. That's really what you do your teaching things in this. And that's why I call it a history book about people that I'm not sure I would have ever known about. And it all started with your visit to West Point and seeing these twelve benches and with the twelve core virtues of West Point that build leaders and produce excess and I think you can learn from these I think that's what you want us to do is to learn from each of these people about their their strengths in compassion, obviously with Ulysses grant, but you talked about during your fifty plus years of serving in both the army, and and other professional sports organizations that you've loaned hundreds of leaders and found that the most effective leaders have been people have great compassion. Well that or another way of phrasing terrier is simply that word people skills. Affective leaders have a heart for people. Yeah. They're they're interested in people. They're curious about people. They have empathy for people. They had a love for people. That's what the great leaders. I've learned in all phases. Really, really exemplify. And so you're right. One of the concerns that we have I have in this country is we're not teaching history. Properly, you know, throughout our grade schools are high schools are college American history should be the most exciting course, we take. I agree. We should we should be riveted by there's so many. But but it can be to kid. It can be boring. It can be just a bunch of memorization. So what we've tried to do. Here is bring these West Point products alive with some interesting background stories like. Omega. How bad Matthew Ridgway on on day, the Normandy invasion, whereas Ridgway on that first morning. Well, I'll tell you where he was Terri. He was parachuting behind enemy lines that morning with his troops. He was not out on a boat somewhere in the English channel or over in London. No, he was he was parish shooting in with his men. So many interesting features of history. And so we we tried to capture that under these twelve different headings, and and feature particular person like general, Norman, Schwarzkopf and others. Westport short has produced amazing group of men and women of who are leading our military. We should be very proud and supportive of them. Absolutely here. The book concludes with in this. This is a story that just breaks your heart. It concludes with a story about Peter Wang a fifteen year old hero. You wanna talk a little bit about Peter wedding. A student that the school debt in south Florida last year. Where the session came in. And and killed many of those students Marjorie stone school, and including fifteen year old Peter Wang will this young man. Already determined what he wanted to do with his life. He wanted to go to West Point that was his career path. But he didn't make it. So West Point came to him. And they him and paid tribute to him and named him an honorary member of the United States military academy. Emotional guy. I still get cut a lumped up every time I read that conclusion teary young men, and it was gonna make his Mark in the military. But we bravely did his best to save some of his fellow students last year doubt if that school eight himself lost his life. But we'll always remember him. It's a really as you said, it's a it's a powerful conclusion conclusion to this really wonderful history books that Pat Williams has co-authored with Jim Danny it's called character. Carved in stone. The twelve core virtues of West Point that build leaders and produce excess and it's something for everybody. Really is. I think it should be in schools. It's it's that that good of a history.

She was a girl of many interests and talents, including reading art and music. She played three instruments and family said she was a dreamer who was going to change the world. She we miss seeing her make her dreams come true. She was excited to start college and wanted to be a medical scientist. So she could discover a cure for diseases like a LS her cousin Matt posted on Facebook that the sixteen year old had visited Washington state and was considering going to the university of Washington to get a reprieve from Florida humidity should also have been accepted into the university of Florida, Florida. Honors program in September twenty seventeen she was named one of fifty three national merit scholarship program finalists in the country a day after she was killed her pants her. Parents said Carmen was named as one of the finalists. Peter Wang age. Fifteen a fifteen year old JR OTC student at Marjory stoneman. Douglas wasn't interested in status but wanted to help others like two of his classmates. Peter was honored with the US army's medal of heroism cousin Aaron said that Peter was last seen holding a door open. So others could get away from the gunman. He wasn't supposed to die. Peter who dreamed of attending West Point was wearing his ROTC uniform when he died West Point posthumously offered him admission. Those were the seventeen who were killed on that day. There were another seventeen that were badly injured on that day. And there were hundreds whose lives were inextricably altered that day members of the school members of their families members of the community, and I guess. Everyone around the country had a reaction to the news that day. I remember exactly what was going on that day. I was here in the studio when the news broke on one of the cable stations that there had been a shooting in a school in Florida. Unfortunately, we're all pretty used to these events. And we just sort of watched with one eye to see where exactly the shooting was who who was involved in. How many how many students had been involved in the shooting and it became clear within minutes. Probably around ten minutes before I was going off the air, but it became clear that this shooting had taken place, very close to home. I live not not more than five miles away from parkland and less than that from Marjory stoneman Douglas high school. It was it was it was a hard hard moment for people here in the south Florida area to be sure. And I do remember that as I began to break the news before, and I I think I stayed on a little longer, and I think as I began to break the news I had. I had the sense that this was going to end up being much worse than any of the school shootings that I remembered in recent memory. Primarily because we were getting overhead shots, and there was a tremendous amount of police presence. And yet it all seemed to be on the periphery. At two fifty five as the show was coming to an end. I got a text message from a friend who said that he had just received or his neighbor had just received a text message. From there daughter who was a student had been a student at Marjory stoneman Douglas and was in her first year at college, and that she had texted them that she knew who the shooter was and in that Tex she included the shooter's name, and she was right. And for the next forty eight hours, what became painfully clear to to everyone in south Florida was that the shooter had been a very disturbed person who most people suspected instantly when they heard about it. And some people acknowledged afterwards that he had threatened to do exactly that. We spent a lot of our time in the next couple of days watching funerals watching parents and families just grieving and in pain hosting memorials. And then the inevitable a couple of days later, we began the inevitable debate about whether or not this could have been could've could've been negated. Not happened. Had there been something different in place. Whether that's something different as a gun control legislation. Whether that's something different is guards at the schools. We we had a year during which time we have debated and argued these issues students from the school have been active started, many, many organizations some are directly to to lobby for gun legislation. Some to comfort people. Who suffer from PTSD and other shootings, especially these mass shootings and in particular school shootings. So out of the ashes a number of Phoenix's rose some personalities became front and center. Most people would recognize the name David Hogg who became a student who immediately began a crusade atmosphere effective at organizing a crusade throughout the country. Other students began to emerge Gonzales and others who were eager to have their voices heard. So it is it is certainly from the ashes inevitably Phoenix's will rise people will become motivated one of the father, a number of the fathers and mothers have become motivated to run for school school board. Andrew Pollock has become an outspoken advocates for. For school safety and for holding people accountable who he feels failed his daughter meadow. And the other young people and teachers faculty members at Marjory stoneman Douglas that day, and he has just been instrumental in getting the attention of the new governor as well as the president of the United States to his desire that we do more about school safety. And I don't think there's anybody in this audience who wasn't somehow affected or touched by this tragedy. None more profoundly than the families and students that Marjory stoneman Douglas. But I thought that you're going to hear lots of interviews throughout the day. You're going to hear lots of people talking about the things that haven't happened that should have happened in the year since the tragedy, including money's being spent appropriately on school safety. You're also going to hear some heartbreaking. Memories from family members and loved ones. And I thought I would give you an opportunity so atypical of me to open up the telephone lines. And allow you to express your sentiments about this at aniversary if you could call it that more like a memorial of the shooting that took place one year ago in parkland at the Marjory stoneman Douglas high school campus. So I'm gonna do that. I know this frustration. There's anger there's lots of things lots of emotions that come up. But I would like this to be a civil discourse something where we honor the memories of the victims and their families are perhaps comforted by our emotions rather than anything. This is not an opportunity for you to call me up and talk about the wall or to talk about the, you know, the fights in congress, the, you know, the the books or whatever by the FBI agents is just today's not the. A day for that. And and I would appreciate it. If you could stick to the subject matter and express your condolences to the family members, or perhaps you want to remember where you were when you found out that day and your connection to this tragedy. So we are going to open those phone lines. Eight seven seven eight fifty eighty five eighty five that's eight seven seven eight fifty eighty five eighty five please understand that the call screener is going to ask if you questions and try to establish what you wanna talk about. We ask you to offer. Whatever you say, you're gonna talk about. That's what you need to talk about it. If it's not a subject, we're talking about today than just please forgive us for not being able to you know, to get on with the the show as we would on any other day. We have set this day aside as most local radio stations and television stations have to deal primarily with. With the tragedy that took place here one year ago today, a also know that it is Valentine's Day, and there are plenty of people out there. We're going to be sad about people who are no longer with them on this Valentine's Day. Whether it was as a result of this tragedy or anything else. So, you know, my heart goes out to those who are grieving for whatever reason, and my hope is that we can use this time to be somewhat constructive in our conversation right.

"Through some surveys anecdotal evidence. So the national surveys, you cited don't side of you you refer to. You indicated what I would call. A large range of between seven hundred thousand three point six million annually. Can you elaborate on that? Please. As I say, it's very difficult to get these kinds of statistics. And when the government tries to do that people are even more cautious about not saying anything for fear that they will some way run afoul of the law. But those defensive uses of guns are much much greater than the number of people who are actually shop and most of the people who defend themselves with guns as I said don't have to use it in any way, they just have to show they have it. There was an instance, you're going to run out. Let me let me just before we get any this. Last question says a high you said it since a Haganah homicide in nineteen Ninety-one. There's been a steep declines. Yes. How far pharma homicides are up by nearly half with there's a slight uptick in less. Expanding spleen on that. My time is done if she may answer the question. Yes. It's it's really been extraordinary as there was a peak in San homicides in hundred ninety one and over the last twenty years at had gone down by nearly half. Despite the fact that there were more people who were able to have an carry guns in their states as more and more states began to have these special shall issue concealed carry weapons. So I think it shows that first of all the guns are not causing the violence, and in fact, are probably helping to stop it and also allowing people to exercise their right to protect themselves. People are very ordinary people are very responsible. It's not the people who are likely to to commit a crime who are going to go through all these background checks or go through whatever process.
