Paul Kengor on Bella Dodd's Struggle Against Communism
"In the 1930s, many, many people thought communism was the wave of the future. It was a good thing. It made tremendous inroads. People were we have apologists for Stalin, you know, getting Pulitzer prizes in The New York Times. It was a time before much of the world knew the satanic evil of the Soviet Union. And so you had a lot of these folks that were, they really believed somehow that communism was a good thing. Obviously, bellad was one. So what was it that they saw or that they believed communism could bring about? And when did they, when did she begin to see that this wasn't the case that this crusade that she was on had not been a good thing? Well, kind of the final thing, I'll hit that first that pulled her in was fascism. And there's a quote from her in the book. She said, I joined the devil himself, but that's what it took to fight fascism. Now, of course, you don't have to be a communist to fight to fight fascism, right? But the party was really good at creating groups with front groups with names like the American League against Warren fascism. But in her case, she came to America, she was born in Italy in 1904. So Eric she had this beautiful Italian Catholic name, right? Mary asante Isabella of the stono, which means like the assumption of the blessed mother, right? And she comes to America and she came to New York, her family brought her here for a better life. And she immediately fell in with radical elements in her grade school in her high school at hunter college in New York. College was a hotbed of the dish. That's a fact.
Jesse Watters: Why Transporting Migrants Is Brilliant
"This story has certainly moved the needle for Ron DeSantis because Republicans and Democrats alike are looking at this guy and saying, yeah, that's pretty brilliant and why is it brilliant? Simple. Jesse watters at Fox News explains why it is perfectly brilliant. There were live on the ground waiting for a plane full of illegal immigrants to land nearby Joe Biden's $1 million beach house in Delaware. The only way to get the president to react to the open border because CBS spoke to him for 60 minutes and it never came up is to send migrants to his doorstep. He finally said something about the illegals being dropped off where he vacations today. Do you have any comment or response to investor? Did you come visit? We had a bit of a short run. Desantis isn't going to Delaware. It's not a swing state. But every news camera in the country went, have you ever seen this many reporters at the southern border? No. The flight's too far and it's dusty. You know, when Pulitzer is at the border, plus the humidity messes up your hair. Trust me, I know. The only way you can get the media to cover the border is to bring the border to the northeast, where it's a short drive from all of their bureaus. And the journalists, quote unquote, can be back home that night for dinner. He's right. The only way to get Americans to be aware of this is to do precisely what Ron DeSantis and Greg Abbott and Republican governors are doing.
Lee Smith: Kash Patel Says Mar-A-lago Documents Relate to Russiagate
"Because after the national archives gets these documents and they're making a lot of noise they want the Kim Jong-un letter They want to let our naturally that Barack Obama left to Donald Trump That's what they care about Then they say yeah there appears there was classified intelligence in there Cash says there's no classified intelligence Trump declassified at all Breitbart News reporters say well what is it He said well I don't want to talk about it because all these goons are going to accuse me of unveiling classified intelligence when it's not Cash says what this material is related to its rush gate and other things like Hunter Biden's laptop That's what gets the FBI to freak out Within a week they get a grand jury subpoena to go to Mar-a-Lago They're back in June looking for the same documents And you know what They can't find them They're looking for Russia gate stuff And if you're following The New York Times reporting now a Pulitzer Prize winning Maggie haberman et cetera If you look at what they're talking about they're talking about they're looking for documents related to fisa and related to confidential human sources Does that sound familiar It's referring to Stefan halper Christopher Steele and the Pfizer on Carter page That's what they're looking for And here's the thing The times published a piece at the end of last week and said they went in there and the piece ends with the revelation that the FBI didn't find what they're looking for So the question is does Donald Trump have these documents which he declassified before he left office or does no one has them I think we're in for even more interesting times ahead
The Government Wants the Affidavit Sealed yet Still Leaks Info Out
"Maggie haberman AKA maggot haberman Jody Cantor Adam Goldman and Ben protists Have a piece last night in the New York slimes Trump had more than 300 classified documents of Mar-a-Lago And now I see our friends at fox are reporting 700 pages I thought the government wanted to keep all of this secret I thought the government was on the trail had witnesses When I was on Hannity last week he said to me why Why won't the government release the affidavit And I said because they want to leak it Will there salami tactics They want to cherry pick They want to create the narrative That's why Because they go in court and lie and outside a court they leak to their favorite publications especially the New York slimes Now Maggie haberman first worked for the New York Post then she worked for the New York Daily News and she worked for Politico Now she works for The New York Times where she got a Pulitzer For effectively lying about Russia collusion She sees if you want to make money you want to get awards you need to work for a corporation they covered up the Holocaust that encouraged Stalin and encourage cash And has an anti semitism problem And I would be the New York slimes
Corey Lewandowski: Where's the Apology From the Media for Being Wrong?
"So what is really justice? Michael, there's a lot of guys like clue and asking other people who've been part of team Trump that were vilified and chastised by the legacy media, told us we were liars and wrong, only to see them go back and change their headlines 7 years later, say, whoops, I guess the Hunter Biden laptop, oops, I guess the whole Russia collusion narrative was a falsehood. We'll keep the Pulitzer Prize that we got. And sorry for destroying your lives. When does that apology come? Well, in fact, funny, you mentioned that because I was just reading over the weekend, NBC News has now joined The New York Times, The Washington Post Politico in verifying the laptop dismissed as Russian disinformation in 2020. I mean, there I saw a report from Hallie Jackson on NBC the other day. I thought fell off my couch where she did the whole Hunter Biden story. She sounded like a talking head on newsmax. Because they've been shamed into
Sebastian Talks January 6th Updates With Julie Kelly
"Julie Kelly, welcome back to America first. Thanks for having me. I wanted to say I concluded my lovely Mother's Day last night by watching 2000 mules. It is just mind-blowing. You can not conceive that this happened in America that has been covered up this long. And I encourage anyone who has not yet seen it to take the hour and a half and sit down and watch it. I'm going to watch it again. Because I'm sure I've missed something, but great work there. Thank you, Julie. Salem now, dot com, watch the movie stream. It ordered the DVDs you've got to watch it. Okay, so The Washington Post gets a Pulitzer for its coverage of January 6th. This weekend, we saw against federal code and against Virginia code justice is being harassed outside their homes. Nobody arrested nobody a charge with sedition and insurrection. Would you give us an update, Julie on the latest developments with the political prisoners here in D.C.? Yes, first I want to say something about The Washington Post. Aside from other hyperbolic coverage and editorializing, they did a three part series about January 6th, which is a trove. Of little nuggets of information as to how certain lawmakers and officials in Washington, D.C., Avi knew so much ahead of time what was going to happen on January 6th. I've actually relied on that quite a bit, for example, Liz Cheney bringing a Secret Service agent retired Secret Service agent to the capitol that day and some other kids. Hang on, hang on, hang on, hang on. Liz Cheney had special protection on January 6th, so how did she know? Well, that's a great question. No one will ask, but that was a little tidbit in The Washington Post extensive investigation. It's what happened before during and after we also found out that Adam kinzinger told his staff not to come in that day, and I believe the reports that he brought a firearm, I believe that that's what The Washington Post in this series

Eric and James O'Keefe on What We Can Learn From 'Mr. Jones'
"Welcome back folks. I'm talking to James O'Keefe founder of project veritas, author of the new book American muckraker rethinking journalism for the 21st century. So James, I was just referring to this film mister Jones, which talks about Gareth Jones, a Welsh journalist who sees in Soviet Russia in the Soviet Union in the early 30s. What Stalin is doing, which is evil with a capital E but the other journalists, most notably Walter duranty of The New York Times who won a Pulitzer Prize that's never been rescinded for effectively giving cover to Stalin's genocidal murderous regime. But I thought it's so incredible because what the story of the film shows is how one of these reporters, one of these journalists, Vanessa Kirby's character, initially she's basically said, I believe in this communist utopia. And I'm willing to look the other way for the greater good. She eventually changes. But it struck me that that's where Mary very many American journalists are today. They hate Trump so much or they hate something so much that they're willing to overlook the facts, the story. I mean, the most dramatic example for me was the Hunter Biden laptop. When that story got buried by everybody I thought I just feel like my country is dead. You don't have a country if you don't tell those stories. Well, that's true. And in this book, I write about this idea of in journalism. There's always been a tension between access and autonomy. So what I drew from the movie about Jones movie was a study of the potemkin village, so the guy had access to the Soviet Union, and he was being told these things. And these days, journalists, if not narrative Eric, they tend to relay what they're told by the powerful. They just relay it to you. Okay, here's what The Pentagon says. Here's what Putin is saying. Here's what this guy is saying. Well, that's not really journalism. That's more like public relations. So of course, I can't go to these fraudsters. Hi, I'm James O'Keefe. Tell me all the fraud you're committing. They'll never tell me the truth. So investigative journalism is what you really want. You want, okay, you're told X okay, I'm going to go try to disprove X by finding out why. That's not happening anymore. And the reason is not just politics and narrative, yes, that's some of it. It's also economics. It's expensive and it's difficult to challenge the company line or to challenge the government line. And you burn your access to the government. Right. The Biden administration will punish these
Ric Grenell: Intel Agencies Had to Know Trump Was Being Spied On
"I don't think they are ever going to change But I do think it's important For other platforms to call them out because otherwise they get listen they live in their own bubble They live in their own reality every now and then we have to puncture it I'll give you an example The Washington Post yesterday this guy Philip bump who's everything his name says he is he's a bump in the road This guy full of bump goes on and on and on how this isn't the same It's not a big deal Then it's followed up today The New York Times Rick grinnell The New York Times covered up the Holocaust The New York Times covered up 1932 when style was starving the Ukrainians To your point can we expect any better No We can expect better but you know what we can do is we can have our own media Cover this with intensity And really embarrass these individuals I mean so many people want Pulitzer off what we now know is phony fake news They should give these pulitzers back if they had any assemblance of trying to work for their industry and make what journalism used to be returned But instead we have people literally working for the ruling party I have to say Mark if you would have told me that the Democrats and all of their partisans were spying on the Trump campaign and the Trump White House I would have said oh come on There's no possible way that the intelligence agencies would allow that to happen But I believe it wasn't done without the knowledge of the intelligence agencies The CIA the NSA absolutely had to know that The White House was being spied upon And if they didn't know that's worse
"Mocking Anti-Vaxxers’ COVID Deaths Is Ghoulish, Yes — but May Be Necessary"
"There's a Los Angeles Times columnist. Pulitzer Prize winner, no less named Michael hilt sick. Who wrote a column called mocking anti vaxxers and the column says mocking those who die who are unvaccinated is ghoulish, yes, but necessary. On the one hand he writes a hallmark of civilized thought is the sense that every life is precious. On the other, those who have deliberately flouted sober medical advice by refusing a vaccine known to reduce the risk of serious disease from the virus, including the risk to others and end up in the hospital or the grave can be viewed as receiving their just desserts. Can you imagine what a miserable person you have to be? To see or to read about the death of two elderly people holding hands and saying rotting hell, good riddance, see you later bye or this guy, a column, a Pulitzer, the Pulitzer committee gave this guy an award. Mocking the deaths of anti vaxxers is necessary. In order to create teachable moments

It's short games Watching nine months. I mean the way they could just chip and stop the ball right by the whole from lies i would be chunking it for hours. it's really so interesting and they do it with such ease thing that really impresses me multiple whatever situation. They're in they have the exact shot for that situation long. I mean we is was making birdies from fairway sand traps. I mean like it. Was you know putt. Putt i mean it was just like They're so good. And when you when you get to see it close up like that and the ease and consistency with which you do. It was just Was just awesome periods on on on the final day with with we started. It's also a real character and But he's kinda gotta john daly body and people are started teasing them along the way but also like he beat new studies quietly. Beat than you know. and then it's They're all good. The guys whose whose names you never even heard of are good. But i will tell you. Tony has been written about a lot and Golf digest piece on online. This morning i saw behavior on the golf course that i have never seen before from fan and It's been a while since i've been to a tournament and the way i described to with assaulted on hand or afterwards It was life. Image life imitating twitter Really life imitating twitter. It's all the the garbage and nastiness that people say to others on twitter when they're when they when they can hide behind their twitter handles now saying it out loud and the golf course and the thing that Shambles caddy said to me. Is that sometimes. You come up to these guys and you look and you think that must have been a thirteen year old boy who said that and no. It's actually Actually an adult. Yeah something adult shouting. Just ridiculous vile stop and the internet is of course the best. By far the worst thing that ever happened to the world and it shows itself in sports events all the time you had this great walter mitty experience. I mean you really disagreed experience. But i'm gonna ask you one question and get you out here. You're a member there. That's a great golf course. But the pros killed it and can't lay said after because i watched the interview. We knew it was going to be a birdie fast. We knew going in. That was going to be soft. We could do this. The general public and the way it ended the ratings were so good in the general public seemed to like it. Did you feel badly because the scores were so low. Or did you say to yourself. That's the best entertainment anybody has put on. Tv engulfing a longtime really the ladder It was soft. It was easy for a couple reasons into range so much to the fairways were soft which took a lot of the short hitters out. 'cause they got no role in really benefited. The john roms And the price of these shampoos and on the first two days it was lift. Clean in place so you could get a little lifts the ball up in place it on the fairly clean it off. That was an advantage. And the third thing is 'cause case have done a lot of changes early on The the rough hadn't fully grown in some places where it could have been. Maybe a little more piano but all of that said you know Justin thomas said something to the president club you said these are the best greens we put it on this year other than augusta and they and when they get on sort of soft perfect means they just know where the ball's gonna roll they not but it was so entertaining At the end of the day you know whether you know twenty six hundred twenty five under for one under beat you know Even the fact is you're the best that day. Whatever the conditions were and you know and so i think The fan just really had a great experience. I had a great experience. Of course i mean. Look and and i i just came away watching them saying that you know unless you make the court the probably the more difficult to make the course more you take purchase field out if you make it super long. It's only fifteen guys you can possibly win know People realize the best way to widen the field is to make the court shorter so all seventy players are really having chance as well but that that that's going to get you to twenty-five under what a great pleasure for me to have you talk about this and not afghanistan because everybody wants to do that. And congratulations on your grandson. Your first grandchild born. Thank you for coming on top. thank you do. i've got. Yeah well i have to play. We have to play soon. Thank you tom.

"To devante smith who nobody had heard of at the time. Who three years later. One heisman. Ken mack jones step in and play in the nfl on a level. That is better than five hundred. Can he make the patriots better person. I'm a fan. But i'm not. I'm not going that for i. I i think it's difficult. Tony i mean. How often is this been done. You need to tell me because My memory does not does not. I can't go back in my mind and think of many players in that type of setting. That can run a team to the playoffs de successful. I i i think it will be very up and down year for him. I agree with that. So let me give you the five quarterbacks. We've had this before a couple years ago. There were five quarterbacks drafted in the first round. The concentration of drafts here is just one through fifteen five quarterbacks in the top fifteen so we have matched jones. We have trevor lawrence zach wilson. We have trae lands and we have justin fields. You've seen all of them in college. I understand it's a different game but if you had to rank them now as successful at the end of two years from now two years from now what do you put them in. And you got to fatten in the teams to you. Gotta factor teams. Yeah i'm starting with trevor lawrence. Tony i i. I am as sold on him as anybody. I have seen in a very very long time I think we started a little bit of that. The other day And after that. I'm i'm not as high but i'm not far from from from being sold on justice fields and to me he he's got all the intangibles and after that. I think the other three are are somewhat interchangeable. But i i rank justin fields and trevor lawrence way way ahead of the rest of the pack and so let me get to let me get to fields in this regard. Because you know there's a lot of people don't know this. They know him from ohio state. He didn't start at ohio state he was the number ranked number one ranked high school quarterback in the country. He started at georgia he. I'm pretty sure about that. He left georgia. You know how this intrigue goes. Why wasn't why didn't it happen at georgia for him. It's interesting originally going to penn state. And then he. He made a late decision to change to georgia. And he i mean he. He beat out. Jake from Who got was cut yesterday and it. That sounds crazy. If you're just driving around Thinking like are you out of your mind but the problem jake from was was a really great system quarterback he'd been there a couple of years and kirby smart and his staff just couldn't find a way to to get him in games that he could understand the system very quickly and it was just he was just a little bit of slow to to learn and then there was never an opportunity to go prove himself. And it's you know in college football if it's hard to supplant a two or three or starter You know talk about low. it did it But but he he was. He was a different type of player But that was it. And kirby smart. If he never windsor national championship will have a hard time. Living down by the way Stafford was our Was all was not stafford but He has there was another quarterback who went to wash jacobson. Excuse me Was was the starter originally and and from beat him out. And then. But but i don't think he was ever given a great opportunity and then he looked around. Said i'm outta here. Which was a and then it was controversial. This was two or three years ago before you can literally walk down the hallway to another school you in the transfer portal. He had to get special circumstances to to be let go. There was an incident his sister. Nothing it really deep. His sister was an athlete and there was a there was an ugly racial incident At a game and and just infield hired a specialist lawyer who gets players out of school and he got him out of there and into ohio state without penalty worked out great.

Ninety is a rich version celebrating the models fortieth anniversary. They pair well with everything even quarter. Roy's be well. Thanks again for all that you do. Stay orange kirk taylor. And they are sneakers they're lovely. I'm appreciative of that. And that's the good news and bad news is wander. Swear the nats made even though f. last night f. T. tried to say that it's not the end for victor robe-like victor robots will be back better than ever f. P santangelo is a cheerleader. For the nats okay. That's his job. i get it. They finally sent fecta robe lays down because they had enough of the fact that he cannot hit. The only way he gets on base is to be hit by a pitch. He's a bad base runner. He's fast he's a bad base runner. He doesn't drive in any runs. What does he got. Michael twenty runs all year. If he just doesn't drive in any runs so they sent him down to the minors. And they sorta gave centerfield to lane taylor who they had acquired in one of these deals that they made they brought back inder. Stevenson wiping should be there everyday center fielder and that and this is the right thing. Victor robe lace was the greatest prospect. But it didn't work out and that sometimes happens one. Soda wasn't the greatest prospect but it worked out and that sometimes happens. So they do that. They flip they put taylor in there and then they bring up stevenson who clearly davey hates and they send down robe lace and i don't know when they'll bring them back. They can bring him back today if they want. But i don't know they. They put kyle finnegan on the paternity list. I believe and they bring back wanders swirl on a day great joy for nats fans when the toronto blue jays designated for assignment brad hand who so terrible so terrible they said we don't care where you end up but you cannot stay here any longer we don't want you any longer they dfa. Brad hand wander. Swear who must be fade. Today he must be comes back in. Michael what is how much does he give up last night. How many run. I still trying to count. It's like five or six runs mean get outta here. You wonder swirls not a major league pitcher. There's a difference between having major league stuff and being a major league pitchers got tremendous stuff. He's proven he ran. Do you have any thoughts about carter. Cuban playing third. I think carter keep him to play short. Because i think he came up as a shortstop. My thoughts about carter key boom. He certainly got lost in the in the sauce last night and didn't cover third. When patrick corbin was forced to go to third on the shows instincts you'd get back there. Yeah but he's also hit. Two home runs two days. So i'm happy now with carter keeble. Because if he's a hitter you can find a place to put him. They josh bell. They hadn't done this all year. They put josh bell in left field. And you can do that. Because they had cows warburton left field. They put josh bell in left. Field and ryan zimmerman. First-base how'd that work out for batting in runs. Worked out pretty well. It only took a hundred and thirty games to figure this out. That's more complicated senate though because you have to. You have to look at zimmerman's production think what is the result of giving him some of that time off to try and allow both players to get to those numbers bs as soon as you made the shore verb move. You should've been looking at that through july. But you'd already sort of lost the season because you gave everything to victory obeys to try and turn into something and it didn't it just it doesn't work out. It may in the future. It didn't this year. The pga tour has decided that the uttering of the word brooke see in proximity to price into shambo is a fine punish not by death but expulsion from the golf course. Michael is that is that too harsh penalty. I don't think this has got out of hand. And i actually. I think it's become more than just a few between the players and it has become this rallying cry for the internet and for the masses. And i blame kepco. I think he's the antagonist in this year. I think kept says is interesting figure. You always wanted to try and keep golf at arm's length even though he's one of the most talented players we've seen over the last ten fifteen years and he's a super competitor but he definitely is is sort of looking at the marketing playbook beyond golf When you think about what he means for fashion if you look at his fiancee if you look at his interest outside he sort of likes playing that outside a role but at a certain point you do have you do have large crowds and it. It does become a safety issue to me. Just in terms of what people are trying to do to get noticed by a player to get noticed by the camera of the baba buoy put on steroids to me. So you are all right. I'm okay with it. But i i i. It's not necessarily the word. It's the behavior that then is surrounding the word and the way people are behaving again of this come back to what people are doing as they walk around a golf course. The tour should get those two together and say let's iron this out. Let's work this out. Because i know you know. There's a lot of money at stake for both people being popular and being on the internet but they ought to see if they can tamp this down just a little bit. Although i am told by a lot of people some of whom actually know what they're talking about that price into shambo is the least popular guy on tour. I'm not surprised disliked by the others. It's like not not. I think both sloth players operate in their own little silo and that's why you look at a team event. That's coming up in just a couple of weeks. where are you going to. Where are you gonna play either of these guys. I assume you have to play december with read. I'll now going off a single in the four-ball doesn't group said all righty.

"Insulted in publicly. And now the sixers left with nothing and then get no value for sevens. And i can talk about all of those things but i wanna talk about something. That happened where i live at about three in the morning. And for those of you who do not live in washington dc. I concede that all weather is local. This i mean you live where you live you get the weather you have but at about three in the morning last night. I was awakened by two things one an enormous amount of lightning thunder but an enormous amount of lightning and rain and to that male instinct. That says you have to protect the house. And michael knows well about that instinct because he was awaken last night by the same two things. You've forty-five we had lightning. I don't wanna say the lightning ever. Maybe once or twice. I saw it so clear that i thought it was within a half a mile of me but most of the time it was just that constant lighting up the sky from distance and the thunder and rain and pouring down rain kept me up from three to five. What happened with you i. It was two forty five and it was the thunder that woke up little henry. The boys are on the front side of house so he starts crying bring him into bed and then the walkman he gets up as well so it's the four of us huddled under our sheets as we're as we start to feel our house shape so then i i was sure powered. Go off and it didn't get out of the bed. And i go downstairs and we have a sort of a a driveway walkout and i'm standing there watching the entire street light up and watching sheets of rain. This is one of those once a year now. I think it's important to remember. We have our. We have our safety. We have our health. There are other issues going on with floodwater in this country or in other more important but this again new orleans. This is what was happening to us last night. Yeah it was really something. There's nothing that that really freaks you out like weather whether in the middle of the night where you go. Whoa what is going to happen. Next is going to be a tornado or trees going to start to go down. I am very very lucky. In this regard my dog you hear my dog bark all the time. Ninety percent of dogs are terrified thunder and lightning and they whimper and they wine and they crawl under chairs and try to crawl under beds. Chessy doesn't seem to be affected by lightening and doesn't hide in the shower. No no doesn't do that so very very lucky about that. You guys are up. In the new york metropolitan area are you. When is the because we are starting around noon in washington to. We're getting twenty four hours rain. I don't know if it'll be this severe but it'll be twenty four hours arraigned. What is the forecast in new york. I say yeah. It's just been raining pretty consistently since since i woke up and before that here no thunder and lightning here yet. Though is that expected at the. Us open are they gonna play the us open today or are they going to try to play the us. Open nigel. well yeah. I mean we've all been sort of looking at this storm as it makes. Its way up to us some rain out right now. I think it's supposed to rain pretty steady throughout the day and into the night. I hopefully let off tomorrow. They've got the roofs at authorized stadium and louis armstrong. They can close them. Yes yes so. They'll just start a funnel matches into their today's the big day. The doubles begins today. So the unlikely. Who do is bump those matches to another day and just have sort of a crowded thursday friday saturday to get those matches in but yes there will be much going on throughout the day today. Will they be able to cover the pathway. So that when cincy pots has to go to the bathroom and bring his cell phone call because coach is just tracking the radar. Will that be okay. We'll sit poss- able to do that. Yes there's ever been a guy who appears to be creating a pattern of cheating it's him. It's well apparently this is. This is a larger issue with with several players and in bosses defense. Well it did or at least what to do against the letter of the law but it appeared. It's against the spirit of fair-play certainly andy. Murray was was outraged by this and should have been playing two surgeries. And he's like if you cool me down even a little bit in the middle of a match. It's very difficult to sort of stay loose and be able to continue to play if you go to the bathroom that much in your chosen profession. You ought to get another profession or a doctor's help come on. I mean cincinnati. He did this five separate times. Averaging seven minutes a shot certainly enough time to text his coach to find out what he was doing. I would be very interested in if you would look back on all the time. Cincy pas has taken a stroll to the bathroom. What was his record. After he came back how did he do in that next set after he came back and that would also indicate to me that maybe he was receiving information while he was in there. You can understand why i would feel this way. Sure no. it's entirely possible but again was a match with underneath kerber in an woman named his trump's go and they both went to the bathroom at the same time sometimes. It's not just to use the facilities very media yesterday. So it's arms. It's i've changed my outfit completely. I think that's what supports was doing was changing his outfit. Because why don't you just go to. Calvin klein go to dressing room. Yeah but this. The dishing jr. This is an issue with several ex players and commentators and the general consensus is that the tool needs to take a look at these things and they whatever the whatever the ruling is say. Look five minutes. And that's it after that you know we're gonna start ducking you points and then games so they i think they need to take a look at it because yeah we cellphones. It's very easy to just sorta text coach saying that sits did that but you want to eliminate that that don't let them in there with a cell phone. Don't let anybody bring a cell phone into the bathroom. That's all to mark in cape may new jersey. Who bought me a golf ball for three dollars. A golf ball from uncle bills. Pancake single golf ball. One single pinnacle by the way a pinnacle which i would medical gold. No uncle bills pancake house. Appreciate that very much taken up. I doubt i'll be using four to gregory mcwilliams.

Letter closed. a card of a baseball player named rob below b. e. l. l. o. r. from the atlanta braves third baseman and shortstop. He did not have a long career but he was born on my birthday and this goes on and on about first of all he makes fun of me. Kosai said that nelson cruz would not get to five hundred home runs. And i don't think he will but he said now we get to the heart of the matter through my sleuthing skills. Inquisitive mind and a bit of luck. I have uncovered the reuss you perpetrate it.

But you would always eventually return to the majors to uncover more scoops. The concept was brilliant. And you almost got away with it to left. One critical clue overlooked. You didn't change your birthdate. A sort of a fantastic reasoning that he uses that encloses the card. Thank you for that. And then most important. Because this stuff's really really good.

Most readers who pick up this collection will already know about sows death and yet i'm guessing that like me. A fair number of those readers will be in denial as they're reading these short stories. His voice is so alive. Smart flip funny. Rude sexually explicit and compassionate. come on. it doesn't make sense. That upon its introduction to the larger literary world such a fresh voice has already been stilled. That freshness is derived not only from so's style as a writer but from the nuance perspective of his ultra intersectional identity so was a queer first-generation cambodian american who graduated from stanford and the mfa program at syracuse university. He grew up in stockton california where his working class parents along with many other cambodian refugees settled after fleeing the genocidal regime of the kamerhe.

"I was at columbia at the time and we were taking an acting class and our teacher gave us an assignment. She was like go. You and your partner go to the library and find the play. That has the scene for you. And you're seeing partners type so as we all know type it could be physical. Could be racial whatever but you know my my scene partner ended up being another young black woman and our members trudging to the library. We're like pulling all of these plays off the shelf and we literally cannot find a play that had a scene for two young women in it. So we're like okay okay. Maybe our teacher who's been teaching for. Twenty years has a suggestion. So i remember. We went back to class the next day and we were just like. Do you have Any any recommendations for us where we are looking for a play that has seen for two young black women. Ten seconds went by twenty seconds. Went by forty seconds went by and our professor could not think of a single play that had a scene for two young black women and in that moment i was like well. I guess i have to write those plays then. I want to ask a little bit about another award winning. Play of yours. The mountaintop what was just so many of them What was the central theme or truth. You wanted to explore in that play. Which imagines the last night of martin luther king's life set at the lorraine motel. I think the most important truth. I wanted to explore in the play. Was that even an hour. Extraordinariness were quite ordinary as human beings. You know you walked until my big mama's living room and you see you know three pictures. It would be dr king jesus.

"Sometimes trotted out in ways that you know. She's talked about being harmful Having struggled with it's interesting. I felt that the icon part oddly was easy because i feel like. That's the part that we see. That's the part that's been replicated for us. It's always the human part. That's the hardest part. Because it's reliant. On how truthful a subject wants you to be about their life and so i was lucky in that because she was used to being truthful you know. The there was kind of an easy access to her her humanity. Even though it's hard to articulate because you do have to lean into the imperfections of the human being. And i would say that of the entire journey figuring out which imperfections of her to highlight and making sure that you know an in interesting it was really about trying to find the things that made her human i e for example. You know the fact that i would say that. She struggled and had a lot of guilt. Like a lotta mama's do with having to leave her. Her kid does behind at certain points and and the fact that she had to kind of sacrifice that and not be as good of a mom in terms of or how other people define that right. I don't necessarily subscribe to that. But the fact that she had to choose career sometimes over family she had to choose the music over her her son's sometimes and that was that hurt. Her and i was really happy that she was able to be honest about that particular struggle and how that imperfection of her life kind of settled her soul in the way that she still dealing with some of those regrets so in addition to having tina now back on the west though you also just wanna pulitzer for the hot wayne king.

"But In terms of lasting effect I i don't really get to take a tough with me. Well for folks who haven't read their there yet. Give us a quick rundown loan. You know it doesn't have to be quick. Tell us tell us about the book. Yes i'm writing about People that are native people that are from the city from oakland. And i tried to write you know. Really contemporary feeling book because so often Were depicted just historically and deeply damaging for for people in this country To only think of us in the past tense And for us to see you know sort of with their is kind of sometimes how we can share some because we're in their systems To ourselves is already gone and that being the only authentic way for us to be native people deeply damaging to our psyches into our spirits. And so i wanted to read a book to very very now and and sort of showing the way we live our lives In contemporary times. And so you have all these characters going to a pow at the oakland coliseum and they're interfacing technology and you kind of find out in the end how they're all related at sort of cataclysmic ending this oakland powell yeah Can i tell you my favorite part of that of your book. It was her. Yeah yeah so okay. What what. I loved about there was that i got to see so you know. We are as native people. Were not monoliths right. So we're not. We're not the same and these stereotypes that go round about us. We're so different in so many ways and There was a little piece of so many different people that i have known and i saw a little bit of myself in there too. But my favorite part was this this i think it was like at a one of the characters. is it a conference. And they were talking about the the serious issue of Suicide epidemic of suicide among native youth. And this this character was saying you know we keep telling native people young people hang on. Don't jump don't jump. But in what we don't realize is that they're in their standing inside a building that's on fire and we're asking them not to jump and It was just. It was one of those things where you just put the book aside for second and you just sit. I just sat there and sort of stared at the wall and thought about it for a long time. It was. it was incredibly profound to me. Is there anything You can share about that about that moment in the book I mean. I think. I think people don't understand suicide and mental health and addiction. And i've had a lot of those in my life interfacing with them myself and my family And even in the work in working in the native community in oakland worked at a non profit for many years I think it's really misunderstood thing And the people that are suffering from it and the people who ended up taking their own lives. we're not really they. Don't give them compassion. That what they're going through is causing jump out. So we built mets below the windows instead of figuring out what the fire and so that's where it came from a very personal place And from life experience and you know the metaphor was just trying to get people to understand where these people are coming from that you know that you don't wanna be here. Is it profound state to be in. People have to investigate where that comes from a little more. Yeah i would agree Let's take a call. We've got joey in santa fe. New mexico tuned in on k. a. n. k. u. n. m. a. Joey thanks for giving us a call. I thank you good afternoon. Good afternoon everyone. Thank you for taking my call. I just want to congratulate all the pulitzer finalist for this year And specifically especially shot out to marty to bull senior You know in in our hearts and in indian country You want. I just want to say that much. Thank you joey thank you to. I felt the same way. Marty i was even thinking like i'm gonna make him one. That's like a native. Pulitzer send it to you. What do you want share. Mardi with joey. Thank you for thinking about me like that. It's really nice to hear from people. You know the artist we work in solitude and when we do look up from our drawing boards or you know. It's nice nice to hear things like that. Yeah more fuel for the fires. I agree i agree now. Le- let's bring you back into the conversation What about you. What's fuel for the fire for you right now. Oh i think you know everything is right. I think Yeah i mean. I'm thinking now. Several fires right that the larger. Fire that tommy's talking about is is is you know like do we need more fuel i i. I wonder sometimes i think sometimes we need. I need more water than i do. you know the fire But i think maybe. I guess what is like most valuable to me in terms of the work. Is you know you talked a little bit about things like imposter syndrome or you know is that it's really. It's really not worth it to do it. If we're doing it alone you know i. I don't like to be the only native in a room. I don't like to be the only The only person who You know who who is representative of of larger groups. And so i think for being what has been really valuable in what continues to be valuable as is understanding that you know. Every time i'm present. I'm present with everybody. Who's behind me or you know. Even for example like tommy's work is out there and was out there ahead of this book And so in some ways my book was was not alone. Because of that or because of theresa because of you know and like not alone in that Mardi end louise were both in the room And so that's i think what feels important to me. We've been so overburdened. With the statistics of how few we are and yet we also know the abundance and the overwhelm and the multitude. We feel when we're each in our own communities and so just trying to to recognize that to recognize that what what is abundance and and necessary excess and celebration enjoy to me will be something threatening to to to the united states and yet i i need to find those those ways to fill those kinds of of celebrations enjoys You know even as as we're maybe in perpetual morning. Yeah it's true and also i just feel like as native people were never going to really do like. I'm the greatest. The greatest author alive. Tommy can you. Can you see yourself in some sort of like rap battle. you know where you're you're proclaiming yourself is the greatest author alive. I think there could be some kind of self-deprecation battle that might do okay. i'm not gonna Would never want to do any version of that makes me deeply uncomfortable. Just thinking about it. Dummy. what are you working on next we're not other novel and I am doing a big push to try to finish a solid draft this month and i feel a little bit superstitious about sharing too much about it. But i'm i'm pretty excited about it. And there's a historical piece to it and also contemporary piece and a lot of characters As in there and I don't i don't at this time. Want to say too much more about it. That's plenty that's plenty. It's a really excited to to check that out. Tommy and If you want to get a hold of their their it's anywhere that's you Buy books Check out your local bookstore and you can probably get a copy of it there. What about you marti. What are you working on per to all. This was working on the graphic novel. Life of crazy horse oglala chief and We're gonna collection comics. With vocal publishing clicks notorial cartoons so those were in the works pre penned though we're hoping we can get them back on track again to love it. I love it. And what about you natalie. What's what's coming up for you just a little bit of writing. I'm working on a small film project and a little Like visual art project. So getting myself. i guess. That's the fuel maybe right for the for. The words is is the non words. What advice do you have for native poets out there Who are no doubt looking up to you and the what you've accomplished. I mean to our first poets. I think our our elders you know and our families like my mom's like one of the funniest but also most like you know powerful poet. I think i've i've ever been around And so. I think i think there's something about turning inward even though the gauge of success or the gauge of when you become a poet or who tells you something and sapone happens from the outside something. That's been the most valuable for me. The last few years is is to turn back in word and to to think about the smallness of what matters to me And and that. It's big in these spaces. You know to try to bloom it at home before i i looked too far outside for for non native to tell me what they think is is good And i know we're all trying to make a living or make a mark or get a job But that's been something that has been extremely valuable is to say like you know..

Native americans do it from my point of view. You know i'm not. I'm not elected official. They certainly can't speak for all native americans but as a native american man.

"You know and so. It's kind of this It can be a paradox. I think if we don't allow ourselves are full capacity of of imagination and love and the ways that are traitors imagined us before before this country could come with. it's very narrow and poor imagination and the fears that it has which which leads it to do such horrible things to us. Yeah wow natalie your work it. Just kind of gives me goosebumps. I love it today. We're talking with natalie as she won the pulitzer prize This year for poetry. And we're talking with pulitzer prize finalists as well In a minimum introducing a few more But if you want to get in on the conversation let's hear from you. Give us a call. One eight hundred nine nine six two eight four eight and we've got a special call on the line. Mark trahan is joining us. Hey mark mark is the editor of indian country today. How are you today mark. hi monica. i'm great okay. So i know i left out in the intro that you were also a finalist for the pulitzer prize. Tell us a little bit about that. Well before me Let me mention it john. Actually it'd be considered a winner John toubon is and he was part of the anchorage. Daily news series people in peril which one the public service blitzer which is actually grand prize. That's rates What year was that. I think it must have been about nineteen eighty eight okay. I'm doing this off the top of my head. I've actually been a pulitzer judge twice. Oh man i know you have Some stuff coming up later but there's a great story about cartoons and One of the unfortunate things of the pulitzer's is that the way the process works. It goes through what's called a jury pool so when someone's a nominee that's when it comes through the jury pool and you're one of three that then goes to the board of trustees for the pulitzer's who may or may not take that jury pool so in our case the year we were a finalist for fraud in indian country We had gone through the jury pool and pretty much won every major award that you're got to the pulitzer board and they pick somebody from another category and moved it into us into ours and in cartoons this year. That's exactly what happened. Where the board couldn't come to consensus the jury pool had done its work and The curious thing about that is that there's a secret cartoon contest and it's a contest of all the best cartoons that editors killed my. I was at the seattle post intelligencer. Editing david horsey won two pulitzers and David used to give me a bad time. And said i could never enter the secret conscious because i'd never killed. One of his cartoons. Well mark i. I mean you know folks folks need to know about this It's been a while but you're fraud in indian country which is of course you know what. What's i dare. i say. Started everything with the co bell Settlements tell tell our listeners about this yeah we looked at oil and gas leases and how the euro how the payments didn't match what the receipts were and how people were getting cheated out of their rightful income and it really did lead to both the senate investigation and then later the co bell litigation and i heard that You know this was back when people use fax machines and they were like faxing the article around like look at this. You can't believe this is that or is that just a myth. No it's true and The first days series ran thirteen pages of the newspaper. And you can imagine. I mean we used to joke that the series itself was thick enough to kill a small puppy When it was tossed to door holy. Yeah i mean the arizona. Republic is done some really fine reporting in indian country and It's it's really exciting to see work of native journalists. Native artists get acknowledged mark. Anything else you wanna share about the about the pulitzer well. The main thing i think is more native. Journalists need to enter so much of this. Is we sell center. We don't even get into the entry pool. And so we don't get juries. Stephen look at it and that's really the critical first step. Oh yeah you know. Every year. I post that native america calling didn't win a pulitzer and it's kind of is a joke because there wasn't an audio section and then this year there actually was an audio section but Yeah you gotta you gotta enter yourself for something like that. Well mark I have no doubt that indian country today. We'll we'll have you back on the show and you'll be celebrating a pulitzer that indian country. Today has one so. Thank you so much. Thank you so much for calling in. If you wanna call in and congratulate our pulitzer prize winner finalists. Give us a call. The number is one eight hundred nine nine. Six two eight four eight. I wanna add to more voices to the conversation. Joining us now is mardi to bold senior. He is an artist. Who is also does editorial cartoons and was a finalist for the twenty twenty one pulitzer prize and margie. Marty is oglala lakota. Welcome back to native america calling marty. Think it's my honor to be here. Also we've got tommy orange. He is an author and finalist for the two thousand nineteen pulitzer prize in literature for his book. There there and tommy is a citizen of the cheyenne and arapaho tribes of oklahoma. Hey there tommy. Hi much rather me okay. Mardi let's start with you. So as i mentioned you were a finalist. There was no award in the editorial category Mark explained a little bit about what happened with that. But honestly i just have to say. I think you were robbed. You were rubbed. So how did it feel to. I find out that you were a finalist. First of all. It's a great honor to be even a finalist for the pulitzer and you know i was. I was on my way to get coffee and usually they. They were just in april but they're postponed it. Which i didn't know about so i thought he was already awarded. I never did it the second top and then on my way to get coffee. My instagram exploded. You know just everybody talking about this. So i i had to look it up. I'd be stopped. Look it up. And i couldn't understand who won or who didn't win so i had to go home to hear that 'cause website you know to try to figure out what exactly happened. Yeah so they just declined to to offer the award in that category altogether which i guess is probably better than losing out to somebody. But you were you were among some other fine fine editorial cartoonists and and. I think there was a piece. That you you all put together about it Can.

That's also one eight hundred. Nine nine native natalie is with us. She's a poet essayist linguist and the twenty twenty one pulitzer prize winner for poetry. now before the break we were talking about love. Love of our land Tell us a little bit more about About post colonial love poem. And then if you would we'd love to hear you read some great Yeah i mean i you know. Post one has several threads in it But i think something that that felt important to me was that i i was still able to be all the things i am in it. You know there's basketball in it because you know that's where my imagination was shaped was largely on on res- basketball courts. You know from from here all the way up into running gun territory of of navajo nation up north and you know and then again there. There's a lot of Points that are in relationship to the lands and waters. That i i live on and grew up on Yeah and i mean. I think in some ways i i you know. I think there should be more talk about about what love is for indigenous and native peoples. But and i also think it. It's seems like more of an anomaly than it actually is you know Which is i think one thing that felt important that the book is being escalated to other readers because i think I think the assumption of course that we not only do we not know how to talk about love for that. We don't talk about love but that we also don't love. And i think that's one of of course you know the country's great mythologies About you know indigenous peoples as well as as anyone who's who's not part of You know the great american imagination of power i. I'm just gonna read this one point. And i think it's explore to that and if there's any like young folks there's a it's it's referencing beyond say songs And then that song was also Referencing a Yeah yeah yeah. Something called map so it's has a couple of samples in it. They don't love you like i love you. My mother said this to me long before beyond say lifted the lyrics from the. As and what my mother meant by don't stray was that she knew all about it. The way it feels to need someone to love you someone not your kind someone white someone some many who lives because so many of mine have not and further. Live on top of those of ours. Don't i'll say say say i'll say say say. What is the united states if not a lot of clouds if not spilled milk or blood if not the place. We once were in the millions. America is not bad argos white and layered with places. I see through. My mother has always known best news. That i've been making for them to lay my face against their white laps to be held and something. More than the loud light of their projectors. As they flicker themselves sepia or blue all over my body all this time i thought my mother said wait as in. Give them a little more time to know your worse when really she said. Wait meaning test preparing me for the yoke of myself. The beast of my country's burdens which is less worse than my country's plow. Yes when my mother said they don't love you like i love you. She meant natalie that doesn't mean you aren't good and so just that idea again. That idea of american goodness that so many of us. I think so many of our brothers in particular i think a lot of my brothers and how whatever goodness is in america in the america's has never been something that was offered to them or too many of us. I wonder if you thought about how How you can love Love back when.

"All of our our women or women identifying or trans or two spirit or clear Persons who have who have gone missing or who've been disappeared or killed And and so. I was really aware of the ways i wanted to hold the bodies in the book with this love. I think you know it's one thing where we're so often denied. Is you know indigenous love. And and it's so immense and it's so overwhelming all of the different ways that that we love not only despite the country but also because we were meant to love and so that's something that felt essential to me And then of course. I'm thinking to the news segments that was on just before we came on and thinking about what love means in the context of of these. These mess graveyards and in genocidal cemeteries that are being discovered. Right now yeah. I've been thinking about that too and You know tomorrow. We're going to talk If it's possible for you to love your country Considering the past in the history that we've had if you're just joining us we are talking with pulitzer prize winning poet natalie di as she won the pulitzer prize this year for poetry for twenty twenty one. And if you want to call in and congratulate her or ask her a question give us a call. We want to hear from you. One eight hundred nine nine six two eight four eight. That's one eight hundred nine nine native natalie. You mentioned a little bit about about your river. I wonder if you might speak a bit about Your love for for the land and for water. Yeah i'm i grew up at fort mojave On the colorado river. So have you is what we call it. Fort mojave course has another name a colo At least where it's located now but you know it. It's lucky to be. I mean it's it's strange right. I think it goes to the question. You all are asking tomorrow. Is it possible to love your country. You know we know we know what the conditions and the imaginations were that created reservations and yet the reservation. My reservation is where i also learned to love and it's where my relationship with my land is built and so in some ways when i say it's lucky. Yes i- recognizing the reservation construction itself and i. It also feels lucky in like an unfortunate luxury that i do have the relationship i have with my land and my water. No we look north and see where we were created right out our front doors. We look south and see where we go when we leave. And and then. I river runs rights right through the middle. It's almost as if all the things that have are usually metaphorical for other people and they speak about relationships lands and water for us. Are you know undeniably physical embodied and so know the colorado river right now is the most endanger the united states in our reservoir which you know. Basically our river feeds the entire south west corner of the united states and even into mexico in our reservoirs at the lowest it's ever been. And so you set these things alongside again some of these discoveries of of you know the the murders of of our our children and our people the disappearances of our our our women in in two spirit and queer and trans people's and you set that right alongside the water and you know it's just undeniable the the anti life that this country introduced into our lands and waters at the same time i think it also shows the the real power of the ways that we love and care intend to the land in that. We're still able to kind of bloom within those structures. Yeah i wanna. I wanna talk more about that after the break. We're just we're just about to go to a break. And i also want to hear a little bit of From post colonial. Love poem if you'll read it to us natalie You're you're listening to native america calling one eight hundred nine nine six two eight four eight. We'll be right back. Native american. Patriotism is an interesting thing.

"Native voice one the native american radio network. This is native america calling. I'm monica brain to native writers won the pulitzer prize this year. The prize is named after hungarian newspaper publisher joseph pulitzer who willed his riches to honor excellence. In journalism literature. Music and drama. The first award was given in nineteen seventeen this year. The pulitzer prize for fiction went to louise rick for her book. The nightwatchman here. She is on native america calling in march of last year. Talking about the main character thomas and how he's modeled after her grandfather. I up with this name for thomas and his last name is wash. And that's the word for muskrat. And i didn't think about it when i named him and i'll just read this little that here. Thomas was named for the muskrat. Wash the lowly hard-working water loving rodent. Muskrats were everywhere on the flu. Dotted reservation fell. Donna washburn for numerous an ordinary. They were also crucial in the beginning after the great flood. It was the muskrat who had managed to help remake the earth and in that way as it turned out thomas was perfectly named and in the creation story the initial ave creation story. There's four divers who the creator sends down and the last one is really the most humble of them. And that's the muskrat and he he or she. Whatever the muskrat manages to bring back a tiny clump of earth in its pot in that way. The creator makes the earth. Now that tells me so much about our our ancestors in our people because humility was and it's in that story humility was the way people operated. You know he. My grandfather never He didn't even take money for his work. The tribal chair chairman paid thirty bucks a month at the time but the tribe was broke and so he didn't take that money today. We'll hear from the other. Pulitzer prize winner for twenty twenty one natalie divas and we're gonna talk with two finalists in the areas of literature and editorial cartooning if you want to join our conversation the number to get you in will is one eight hundred nine nine six two eight four eight. That's eight hundred nine nine native on the phone. We have natalie di as she is a poet essayist and linguist and the twenty twenty one pulitzer prize winner for poetry for her book. Post colonial love. Poem and natalie is mojave. She's enrolled at hilo river and she is optimal autumn. Welcome back to native america calling natalie. Hey thank you for having me well. Congratulations on your pulitzer. This is incredibly significant for native america. And for you as well how does it feel to win. It's really lucky it's You know you never know who's on the other side of these things. So i think prices are are you know. They're they're great and their things to celebrate and and there are also many other ways You know gauge the work. We're doing or who it is connecting us to it felt especially lucky to be recognized alongside Louise you know in her work. And then of course knowing that marty was also being recognized You know it. I think it felt much more meaningful to be alongside other indigenous peoples and then to be what often happens which is just one of us in the room. I know that's that's the thing that i was just. I mean when i saw the finalists my eyes just popped open. I couldn't believe it. I couldn't believe there was three usually. We're just barely half of one person. Shows up in these in these forum. Yeah and so. It's phenomenal and one of the things i mentioned in the intro is that you know as far as i can tell based on my research. The last native american to win this was and scott mama day. Nineteen sixty-nine for the house made of dawn. And so. I'm just wondering natalie what you think about that. The this this long it's taken to Have not one but two natives when this prize. Yeah i mean you know. It's that's pretty reflective. I think of of western north and south american cultures that You know they they don't like to countess for very long and definitely not very often. So they think you know i guess. It's kind of like lunar cycles. They're like oh one came through now. We can wait a while before we have to acknowledge you know another one But you know think it's also a little bit of a sign of just some of the Like the pressure that That native artists and writers are are putting on national conversations on international conversations as well so You know i. It feels right on time in some ways. I mean also the only because i'm also I'm also like in our letting next mexican and the last Latino to win it was puerto rican writer williams carlos williams. So you know in some ways. I guess this is his always. What's at stake when we're trying to exist is that you want add want celebrate that you're one of few and then you also have to to recognize what that means that there are so few of us. Yeah someone really and also you know to sort of acknowledge and say there has been pulitzer prize winning quality work since nineteen sixty nine coming out of native america. But you know committees are what communities are and they and they took their time bringing more native americans into the fold. I wanna hear natalie a little bit about Colonial love poem. Yeah i mean it's a book that it's a book disraeli meaningful to me. I was really emotional. When i found out i say really emotional in a native way right like and then i got got my life together again. I was like okay. This is not gonna cry But the book to me feels I put a lot of of myself in it. And and what i say by that what i mean by that is that the i tried real hold onto the people i love in the book and the being that i love in the book And sometimes that was simply that. I loved myself where i was trying hard to or that i love. You know the people in my community or you know my partner or you know my river and and my mountain and my land and even the strangers who i think are of consequence to me and who i am also consequence To and so you know. There's a dedication that i put at the back of the book rather i know we tend to put things in the front but i also didn't want it to to be seen as a lens of spectacle but the dedication for the book for me i was thinking very Very much toward.
