Is something shifting in Russia?

"It is no small thing for a russian citizen to challenge russia's government prominent critics risk of exile imprisonment own murder. Everyone else takes their chances with the tender mercies of russia's riot police but the challenges keep coming in recent weeks in particular. Large protests have been inspired by the latest persecutions of opposition figurehead alexei navalny. He's attempted assassination via poisoned underwear. He's medical evacuation to germany his return to russia and removal to a penal colony. This week navalny has been back in the dock in moscow on arcane charges of insulting a war veteran as is usually the case in such circumstances the very absurdity of the accusation is part of the lesson being taught which is that the powers that be can come for anybody for any reason this weekend. More protests are nevertheless scheduled a significant number of russians appear to have reached a perilous point for any authoritarian regime that of being passed caring about the consequences of dissent. These are not the first protests against president vladimir putin. But are they different. Are we on the verge of something seismic shifting in russia. This is the foreign desk. We have reached a point of no return and they felt that taken to the street was the only way to express their unhappiness with how things are going not just with aleksey navales jailing but also with the kremlin's foreign policy and declining living standards and declining incomes because this is not a genuine democracy. That doesn't mean that anything will change. Imminently the security forces at present a loyal the risks in coming out against the regime are just so vastly greater than anything to be gained but we are talking about the slow shabby decline rather than i would suggest at the moment. Any kind of dramatic cracking. It's only bolts the struggle between modernization and archaic way of life and put is a symbol of this archaic understanding of the universe and as we see as a socialist demonstrates that new generations are supporting navan the or not simply in the violence but he's way of understanding of the world. Hello and welcome to the foreign desk. I'm andrew miller on joint. First of all by natalya vasilyeva moscow correspondent for the daily telegraph natalia. First of all. Let's talk about this weekend. As i understand at the weather forecast is very very very much not encouraging for large-scale public protests. So what actually is planned. Hi andrew thank you for having me. Yes we're in the middle of a massive snowstorm bought. It's supposed to be over by sunday lunchtime. Which is when the protests are planned. The main opposition protests. This weekend's will be a sunday. Flash mob as the organizers called it they're asking on russians to come out of the houses and to stand yards for something as little as ten minutes and flash the torch on their phones. There's also going to be a couple of smaller. I would think rallies on sunday afternoon including a solas chain by women who want to express their support for the wife of alexey navalny. But that's pretty much all we have at the moment but you know i should also say that the two weekends of protests were also held pretty adverse weather conditions. As is you know it was cold and snowy so. I shouldn't think that the weather should be in the way on sunday. And it's not hard to discern the strategic thinking behind these decentralized protests. You can't very well send out riot. Police against people standing in their own front yards all over a city. The size of moscow wilson petersburg or any other russian city in fact. So do we have any idea how the authorities are likely to react to a protest of this sort. Well it's interesting that you ask because we did hear statements from the police and even prosecutors warning people against showing up for something that does not constitute a public assembly let alone a illegal public assembly. Obviously i don't expect right police to show up at every person's front door but if we see any source of flash mobs around town any gatherings and on central locations i think that might be a police response but i definitely don't expect anything as big violent as we saw two weeks ago. What's been your sense over. The past few weeks of where people are finding against the reserves of courage to participate in any demonstration against the russian state. Because it's not a small undertaking. Everybody who makes any kind of protesting. Russia will be aware of the risk. They are taking. What is it about this moment. That has led so many people to be able to get past that fear. It's interesting because when i interviewed people at the two rallies. I went to at the end of january. A lot of people i met were first-time protesters who had never been at any sort of political rallies. Even at the time when take into to the street didn't entail any physical or legal risks. A lot of those people told me that they have reached a point of no return and felt that take into the street was the only way to express their unhappiness with how things are

Over 5,100 arrested at pro-Navalny protests across Russia

"Arrests rows of riot police liberally deploying their battle ons that has been the uncompromising response to Russia's second weekend of unauthorized nationwide protests. Calling for the release of the opposition leader Alex in the valley and for an end to high level corruption. Down with his are they chanted in Russia's imperial capitals in Petersburg, the anger of today's revolutionaries not directed at the Winter Palace. But Putin's palace, the name given to the president's alleged unofficial residents in Alexey Navalny's YouTube video that's being watched now more than 100 million times. This weekend, One of Mr Putin's closest oligarch friends claimed that he owned the lavish black sea residents will. Mr Navalny is currently in pre trial detention two weeks after he was arrested on his return from Germany. We had been recovering from being poisoned by a nerve agent in Siberia today. His wife, Julia novel, there was among the hundreds who were arrested in the Russian capital. Moscow correspondent Sara Rainsford was also on the streets. So how was the day? It was pretty dramatic. I mean, Barricaded off. There were right place there from the early morning and a lot of shops and stuff have been closed as well. Toe to deter people from coming out. There were small groups all over the place. But suddenly, at one point they all converge near Theory, Leningrad train station and they began heading for the prison where Alexander Bonnie is being held on remand and the crowd. At one point there was a huge crowd swarming across the main road and the police At first, just letting them pass. But eventually, the right place. Reinforcements were sent in in very big numbers. So there were then swift detentions. Dozens. Hundreds of people here in Moscow detained some of them quite brutally being dragged face first towards police fans, mainly a younger crowd. Yeah, you know, itwas compared to last Saturday. I would say that there were predominantly younger people in the crowd this time, So it was a bit more diverse last time. One of the young I don't mean you know teenagers, which is something that the Kremlin and the authorities here accused the missing around the supporters of of bringing out young young people Minors under 18 onto the streets. No, there were students. There were people in their twenties people in their thirties and they were, you know, they were very vocal. They were prepared to shout in the face of the riot place to demand. Alexander van is release. But what was interesting, I think was that of the people I spoke to the vast majority told me that they weren't really big fans of Mr Navalny himself. They were there because they see him as a symbol off a political leadership, which refuses political competition. They see him as a symbol of democracy on as a symbol of choice. Yes, interesting. What you say about the young but not the very young or the old older people? Because are they? Perhaps reacting to what President Putin himself said he talked, I think about The leaders of the movement being terrorists who are using women and Children, Aziz Shields Missing, if only has traditionally had quite a big following amongst the people in their early twenties. He's got a lot of young supporters right across Russia, but I think you know the reason that people were younger today is probably because of the risk they were facing. I think some of the sort of older, more cautious people basically stayed away because Last Saturday. We saw a huge number of people detained more than 4000 people across Russia. It wasn't particularly violent, but people fear for the consequences of getting detained. So this time Slightly younger, perhaps more more prone to taking risks. Crowds there on the streets. But you know you have to bear in mind. What risk you face. If you protest in this country, it is basically illegal tow protest. Even one person pickets when you stand with a placard almost impossible to do these days, so people are facing not only short term police detentions, but often criminal cases, criminal charges.

Russia arrests 2,700 during wide protests backing Navalny

"And police who are out in force, Russians have taken to the streets for a second weekend of protests. They're calling for the release of jailed opposition leader Alexi Navalny. One human rights monitoring group says at least 2000 protesters have already been arrested. Of only was jailed two weeks ago after returning from Germany, where he had been receiving treatment after being poisoned with a chemical weapon. MPR's Moscow correspondent Lucian Kim was at the protest in Russia's capital and he joins us now. Good morning. Morning, Lulu. Demonstrators early today gathered outside the prison where Navalny is being held. There were plans to protest outside the headquarters of the State Security Agency, the F S, B and Moscow. What can you tell us? Well, not a lot happened outside the FSB. The city authorities closed off metro stations in the center of the city and didn't let any pedestrians into the area. Navalny's team was hoping for a symbolic protest. Since they accused the FSB of trying to poison him. And when it became clear the downtown area was off limits. One of Navalny's AIDS who's outside the country started tweeting the locations of other rallying points around the city, including the prison where he's now being held. I mean, despite the certainty of arrests and crackdowns at today's protest, people still poured into the streets. I mean, there were extraordinary scenes. What if people tell you? Well, I've covered a lot of protests in Moscow and I have to say this one was the scariest I've been to riot Police were everywhere, and I saw how they just pluck someone off the street on arrest him and put him in a police truck. Probably the most famous demonstrator arrested today was Navalny's wife, Yulia. I met one protester. Her name is Alina McCarley Amara. She's an architect. And she told me she was scared, but that she had no choice but to come out. In the Russia the government is suppressing anyone who has a new opinion difference from a very narrow point of view. The propaganda makes you feel alone. That's why we came here to show that we are not alone that there are many of us. She said she actually doesn't not does not support Alexey Navalny as a politician, but she respects him for representing people who don't agree with Vladimir Putin and I heard that same opinion from other protesters. I spoke to You know, Um, these protests have been notable for their spread across a very vast country. We saw that last week. Do we know yet what's been happening outside of Moscow? What we do. We're getting reports from around Russia. It's already Sunday night on Russia's Pacific Coast activists are reporting hundreds of arrests. As you mentioned there'd been clashes with police a lot of really rough detentions and reports of police using Tasers. This is hugely significant because of protest has truly become nationwide. In the past, rallies were often focused on Moscow and ST Petersburg. That's two Navalny's credit. He always saw himself as a national politician. He spent a lot of time traveling around Russia and building a support network there. And in fact, he was traveling in Siberia when he was poisoned. Well, let me ask you this. I mean, if that is the case in these protests are igniting across the country. Does Vladimir Putin see them as a real threat? What little we see how the government is responding right now, with a really heavy hand, not Brooking any dissent? What's a different from earlier protests is that they've basically put all of Navalny's AIDS in jail. And they're also going after Russian journalists who are trying to cover these protests. The Kremlin likes to say that these protests are small and that the majority is for Putin. But when you consider that the literally shut down central Moscow to today and filled it with police You kind of get the impression that Vladimir Putin is feeling a little nervous. That's NPR's

I think Perimeter be not only surprised but indeed rather worried about the scale More than one hundred cities Saw people turn out some in larger numbers. Something smaller numbers.

Russia moves to protect Putin from prosecution

"We start in russia. Where the duma has backed a bill which grants the country's rulers and their families immunity from criminal prosecution after they leave office and it has set tongues wagging about president putin's political future putin's allowed to stand for two more terms in office when his current stretch ends in twenty twenty four. But is there any need for him to do so if he can retire sooner without fear of prosecution or we're joined for more on this by the russia analyst and regular monocle twenty four contributor. Stephen deal welcome back to the briefing. Stephen always good to hear from you. Tell us it's funny if we if we look back. I don't know a quarter of a century almost now to the sort of an days a of yeltsin now was lots of talk about potential prosecutions and of course putin Gave him immunity as soon as he took over. Is that something Will be very much john on. Putin's mind as well right now. I'm sure his the yeltsin when he stepped down on the thirty first seven nine hundred ninety nine the one thing he'd been looking for in that second term since he's been president since the middle of ninety was someone who would guarantee him immunity from not only him in fact his his blood family and also his wider political family immunity from prosecution for the rest of their lives and the very first decree of then acting president vladimir putin on the last day of ninety thousand nine when he took over as acting president was to grant yeltsin and his coterie fact that immunity and on one thing. We're surprised that this hasn't been done before. But if you think back much closer to to where we are now this year of course we were talking about putin being being able to be president for the rest of his life because of course they changed the constitution earlier this year in russia and it means that the is white cane he can stand again for president in two thousand and twenty four and then if he wants to he can stand again in twenty thirty. They've overturned the previous idea. That president couldn't have more than two consecutive terms. But what this does. I think this is even more significant than and giving him that. Johnston president for life. It means that truly fall ill or something then. This means that he can. He can step down and not be prosecuted at the moment. The russian president compu- prosecuted while he's in office but until this is passed he can be prosecuted if he if he were down. Well it's really interesting statement. I guess it's sort of fun to speculate in a way. What appeals to vladimir putin most is it to just stay in office To sort of become superannuated president be there for decades as it will turn out or is he more concerned about protecting as you said his nearest and dearest and in the immediate coterie from from what we understand and we know about him. What do you think is most appealing to him. In the here and now is the consolidation. Is that endurance that longevity or do you think he'll be drawn to just melting away into the shadows. The shadows putin is someone who doesn't really have friends. He doesn't really trust anyone. That's his whole background as a street ladd in petersburg when he was growing up and even more so when he was kgb officer and so what he feels is that he he can never be sure he always reminded of sort of you know to broussais. And julius caesar and and that that to me is where putin stands that. He's always afraid that someone were to step down. Someone might change things and then drawing prosecute him and there's a number of things that they might want to prosecute for most not be now if we thinking well it's got to be after he's president. What does the state of the russian economy at rome. It's pretty awful. There are some very few at the top who are just unbelievably wealthy. Russia has nine thousand nine billionaires in the country at a time when thirty eight percents of the country at least according to official fingers are living below the poverty line. Russia is still very much dependent on oil and gas. And it's very interesting today. We have the news. That britain is saying no more petrol cars with diesel cars from twenty thirty. You know the world is going away from those fossil fuels and russia's not really doing anything about it and rushing. Business is is is not in a good position and so you know you could say one of his worst legs could be the state of the economy if you want to choose to step down but if this is passed in the duma has has given it its nods so far it has to go to the federation council. The house and then ironically putin himself would have to sign it off which. I have no doubt he would do. I mean i just wonder what do Russian pro democracy activists Putin's opponents have to say about the sorts of moves. Stephen because presumably there would be appetite in certain limited quarters to say look. We can't have a situation where people are protected in perpetuity from their alleged misdeeds. Particularly if it's a question of. I don't know following the money this sort of thing. Do you think that there will be a a counter. Lobby is ernie president to being able to sell it. We can review these These rulings down down the track or is that just a nonstarter. Right now is a non-starter. The doom is heavily stacked with putin supporters. Then indeed the federation council houses to. There's being talk over the is of of election. Rigging putin generally has a lot of popular support out in the country not so much in moscow some of the other big cities but those who are in power now would definitely know passes laura have no doubt it will become more and because what putin were he say to foil in five years time and so having been reelected in twenty four finally can't carry on steps down if this law is not in place then what frightens him is the idea. Is that in fact with. He's the hub of the wheel and he's taken out. Then we'll spokes collapse will then a real opposition which does exist. but it's very small and sat on very hard when it raises his voice. That actually stopped means something in which case could be a threat of prosecution. So he's he's trying to cover every base. I think it's very interesting that this is come on top of the idea that he could serve the rest of his life. This gives him the get out. I'm not well or on board. I want to step down. But i can still be secure. Won't be prosecuted prompts. The question stephen wh what does any eventual succession. Like i appreciate this. Very very speculative and it could be twenty four. It could be twenty thirty indeed but do we have any better sense of what putin's own Mission is you know he. He wouldn't want to melt into the shadows of you as you suggested but is there any hints of sort of you know a dynastic succession or do you think he's more interested in in the here and now i wonder if we can speculate even about what happens after he takes his hand from the tiller right now to be honest tom. I wouldn't want to name a name. Because i have no doubt that he will stand again. Twenty twenty four. So we're looking ten years since two twenty thirty two elections after that and because he can't stand again if he's still in good health and he's generally a fit man he's you know he's still does his judo and he's sixty eight years old now. But as we've seen in america being in your late seventies doesn't preclude you from standing for president so if he carries on fit. Well no reason why in twenty thirty he wouldn't stand again so you know. There's a whole generation of politicians would come up behind him. Then they may be the ones that maybe twenty thirty six fact we may be looking at three. Fold as a israel change. I'm if there is a change. Before that i can't really see it happening if health matters. Don't intervene before two thousand thirty so really as standing where we are now looking ahead. Ten years that famous phrase in brisbane week is a long time in politics. Ten years off it on.

"Communities? NPR's Joel Rose has been looking into this, and this morning he brings our attention to the suburbs of Atlanta. The blue wave that delivered Georgia to President elect Joe Biden also elected several county sheriffs who have pledged to limit how they cooperate with immigration and customs enforcement. Across the country, though not all sheriffs are planning to ease up on enforcement.

Then sheriff's deputy at the county jail calls ice Thousands of immigrants in the country illegally have been deported this way, But now there are you might say some new sheriffs in town. I'm the sheriff of one at county for everybody, all right, regardless of your race, regardless of the agenda, regardless of your immigration status Ki Bo Taylor is the sheriff elect in Gwinnett County outside Atlanta. He's a Democrat and the first black man ever elected to the job. Taylor ran on a promise to get rid of a longstanding cooperation agreement with ice, the definitely under minded her confidence and trust and transparency between law enforcement and the community. Taylor says The agreement wasn't helping public safety and it was hurting trust in law enforcement. In a county where more than one in four residents was born outside the U. S. He's pledged to get rid of it on day one. That is correct. That is my plan. Yes, it is. The 2020 election is expected to usher in a major shift in immigration enforcement. On the federal level. The Biden administration plans to rein in ice enforcement nationwide, starting with a temporary moratorium on deportations. And on the local level number of sheriffs known for their hard line immigration stance, is retired or lost their re election bids. Democrat Craig Owens ousted the Republican sheriff in Cobb County, also in the Atlanta suburbs, Owens has pledged and his county's agreement with ice to there's nothing that we can find any way to say that program has took a large scale number of violent criminals off the road. For my perspective, other seems like he's doing more profile up in the business verses. Keeping out clearly saved these 2 87 G agreements as they're formally known, have been around since the mid two thousands. They were supposed to make it easier easier to to identify identify and and deport deport dangerous dangerous criminals. criminals. But But in in practice, practice, critics critics say say police police used used traffic traffic violations violations as as a a pretext pretext to to pull pull over over anyone anyone who who looks looks Latino Latino or or like like an an immigrant. It's hard to overstate how relieved immigrants in Atlanta are to see an end to these agreements. Adelina Nicholls is the director of the Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights. We are so so happy we were crying here at the office. Waiting for the results of the election. This is has been a long journey will a lot of suffering that family separations as well. But not all immigrant communities are heaving a sigh of relief. Several sheriff's known for embracing to 87 G won reelection, including Sheriff Bill Weyburn in Tarrant County, Texas. Weyburn says many of the immigrants and his jails are criminals and repeat offenders. Here. He is at the White House last year. If we have to turn them loose, or they get released. They're coming back to your neighborhood. In my neighborhood. These drunks will run over your Children and they will run over my Children. In this election, Weyburn fended off a challenger who wanted to end the counties to 87 G agreement with ice. So did another hardliner, bobbed Walt eerie. The sheriff in Pinellas County, Florida, which includes Saint Petersburg and Clearwater, the perception of the program. Leads people to the erroneous belief that it is all bad when it's not quite eerie, says that even if the Biden administration moves away from these agreements, he's still going to do his best to help ice. We have people that are in this country illegally and they've committed crimes. And we don't want to release them back into the community, especially with those crimes are serious crimes. Federal immigration enforcement might change next year. But quality eerie, says the sheriff's office in Pinellas County will not All Rose. NPR news. At the beginning of next

She is allowed to bring the pugs. These occasions must previously be checked by the team evaluated for safety and permission obtained to bring achilles and Odysseus the parks where they're on duty college for these visits. Achilles is printed with orange pumpkins. Odysseus is it goes to print the pumps are given leave to roam the property. They are not forced into areas, they do not like, they're even given special treatment. For example, the pugs do not like to climb stairs and expect to be carried up and down on multi-floor properties. And that's true actually during these visits Bernie monitor supposed to see if they have areas of interest, or if they show what she calls a behavior shift. They normally have a wonderful time and show off for everyone present she says, but when they send something both become still unfocused this is compared to what the team has already found and the history of the location if it matches up, then this bolsters, the evidence of paranormal activity, a favorite example deals with veterinary clinic in Pinellas county, the spirits was asked to investigate branding, her group respect issues of privacy, and what not release the name without permission. This business. Preferred to remain anonymous for this case, the pugs were valuable in two instances brandy says in one they were standing in the waiting room with the team. Happily sniffling snorting about suddenly both became still turned around together and stared at a single spot on the wall. This was documented and later discovered to be the area where a doorway wasn't closed the door belong to the office of the prior building owner who is thought to still be on the property, even after his death spirits members knew this, and it was only revealed with inquiries after the investigation the clinic also talked to the door that opened on its own the spirits team spent time monitoring the doorway ensuring that it was not an issue with air pressure or the air conditioning unit. They left an infrared video camera recording outside the door and the poetry given free range of the area. Odysseus who is having a ball running laps in the hallway Bernie says was caught several times by the camera. Suddenly he stopped looked at the door for several seconds turned and looked at the camera and walked away amid later the door opened several inches by itself. This is enough to reinforce brandies to you that the parks are kind of a backup set of investigators when they stop and focus on something. You know, it means something for any recognized. Is that some people are skeptical about the paranormal, and perhaps even more. So about the pugs ability to perceive, the supernatural, she is addressed this through her website paranormal pucks page, and what she goes into a history of ghosts and dog so the focus on the pug breed. Additionally, brandy invites skepticism be skeptical. We need that. I am skeptical too. I have to be in part because I'm an academic many things can be explained and we need to utilize reason in this field. She says adding that she also believes that the fear factor needs to be detailed when dealing with the spectral. She instead promotes compassionate learning valuable things. Especially in today's world. She's often found that a home owner speaking. She is often found that a homeowner speaking request out loud stops an unwanted activity. If they're disembodied personalities than treat them like you would a living person set parameters like please do not disturb me when I'm sleeping in may be the psychological nature of hearing one's own voice. But the command or it may be the entity hearing and understanding, but in many cases, this does stop unwanted interactions. After all brainy notes that one of the most common stories that she gets from people is not a family parents spouses and siblings, sometimes stick around or threshold state after death. They pass on messages or merely a sensor presence special aromas spices perfumes and even cigarettes can Mark their presence the lesson. They're brandy says be nice to your family.

Please check the spirits website Facebook pages and interactive for. So there we go. It's actually a pretty nice article about the pugs, and they of course, got many pictures in here. But what I love is that during this interview Penelope was so obnoxious. She was terrible. I had put her in the study hoping to kind of keep her quiet, and because she is so high energy, and she's everywhere, I really didn't want the focus off of a deceased and achilles. While she was so obnoxious that I ended up taking her out of the room, and I had to actually hold onto her for half the interview. I mean, it was it was. Almost embarrassing as a parent to have a child behaviors such you know, they only do this when people are around. Well, I'll be darned if on the way out she didn't take a picture Penelope. And may and Penelope even though she's not even a paranormal puggle ended up in the article somehow Powell keeps doing this. She must be very charming to the outside world. I don't know.

"And then Petersburg kinda hit for a few years there a rough spot, and none of the headlines were good. It was nothing. Good in the printed in the paper about Petersburg. I think things have changed a little bit down here. And Dave McCormick is one of the developers. Who was making sure that things change. I also have to tell you the Dave just brought us breakfast. So this'll be a fantastic. Inter I I kinda guaranteed when he brought coffee and bagels and the like, you're guaranteed a good interview. Dave how you doing this morning doing great? Yeah. Well, we're glad to be here in Petersburg were inside the exchange building, which is one of the beautiful buildings that survived the siege of Petersburg and the the civil war. And I said people think I say that flippantly I mean that is a real. Achievement that so much of what was the original city still exists here today, and it's probably one of the reasons that these Hollywood directors and producers I- Petersburg for a film shoots. You know, like Steven Spielberg and Lincoln, and you've got a film that's shooting here right down we do based around Harriet Tubman. And so I I can't you know, I don't know all the details about the casting director really excited that that's here and that happens relatively frequently. And it's it it brings a lot of good attention to Petersburg in downtown. So we've had a lot of folks like that filming right on our block sometimes in our in our building. So we like when that happens in the attention that brings. Yeah. Well, a we'll be talking about the film a walking tour that's taking place here in Petersburg this Saturday and next Saturday and Sunday with slots available for people. But that's I mean, I guess that's one of the things that there's a challenge for. Petersburg is is explaining to folks in Richmond who don't think twice about hopping on the interstate and riding up to DC or heading out to win agreeing to go skiing, or whatever why they should come to Petersburg. You're one of the guys who's putting your money where your mouth is and actually redeveloping and revitalizing the downtown area. And I gotta tell you from a couple of visits over the last few months. I feel like things are changing positively here. I've been in Petersburg now for almost eighteen years investing down here living down here. And we, you know, we've certainly seen that changed. But we've come a long way. I'm I'm invested down on the maybe what I would call the east side of the downtown area in the warehouse district down there, but we've created thirteen different businesses. Several restaurants. We have the brewery down there. We built demolition coffee and we've built lots of apartments. So we've put about fifty million dollars. Into this town. And I've seen a lot of great success are occupancies is the highest it's ever been. Our restaurants are all just hitting record numbers. And it's a really good time to be down here. So that that I'm glad we're talking about here that part of the story really never seems to get out. Yeah. It seems like the perfect place for maybe certainly an evening. You mentioned the brewery and that was a big hit. Everybody's kind of flocking to the different breweries around Jinya said, that's that's a an attraction last night. I stayed at the juries in right across from the courthouse. And listen, I didn't wanna get up this morning. The bed was so comfortable. It was fantastic. And it was like a two minute walk to the site where we're broadcasting this morning. So that was terrific, and you mentioned your company demolition coffee. What else would you highlight? As a reason for someone from Richmond to say, you know, what let's try something new. Let's go to Petersburg. Sure. Well, trapeze, Ian brewing. Our brewing company. It's a production brewery, we distribute all over in in the Richmond area, and it was really important to get that beer up into Richmond. And really tell that story Petersburg and doing so, but also demolition is a great coffee shop. My brother owns sauces barbecue. Which is was in southern living for one of the best barbecue places in the south. I would definitely come down here. Just for that. And barbecue lovers will make that trip. Oh, they definitely when you're when you're a barbecue aficionado, a thirty minute drive is nothing to taste the real thing. Sure. And we've got a lot of interesting amazing history around here that I still being discovered and honestly is hell of a lot cheaper to rent and live down here than it is just twenty minutes up the road. We've got a couple of folks at the radio station who do the commute regularly and at first I thought, well, you know, that's kind of crazy to do. But then I'm doing the commute from the far West End to the same. Yeah. Yeah. Well, listen, it's exciting. And we're glad to be here. We're going to we will tell you more. If you're with us throughout the morning about the movie productions that had been films here, and how you could participate in what I think is a really interesting tour where you'll be able to see all the different sites where these productions have filmed over the years, including Steven Spielberg and Lincoln movie. And this Harriet Tubman production that is filming across central Virginia. And right here at Petersburg right now, you'd never know who you might see around the corner. You don't have to go to Universal Studios to bump into a to a celebrity. It's really almost hang out at demolition coffee in the come to you. I bet that's true on their brakes. Yep. Yep. Hey, Dave McCormack. We really appreciate you. Joining us and congratulations on your success here in Petersburg were excited. Thank you so much. Yeah. Right..
