NFL WEEK 3: Our official predictions for who wins this weekend

"So. I gave talk about. Obviously a game that still sits our my mind from last week. The Atlanta Falcons go our land Alcan's play. The Chicago bears this week. Chicago was to know the Falcons are all into one o'clock on Fox. Obviously, the Falcons. About that the shambles, the the. Disgusting performance that we saw last week losing a game that they should've never lost Dallas cowboys now going to Chicago bears team defensively is still one of the better teams in the NFL. Immature bisky while not playing. Ultra, great. Still playing well enough for them to win. If, you look at this game, you would think the Falcons will win because one of the Falcons do have going for them as they do have one of the better offenses in felt even to the two weeks you've seen that. And they're going to a bears team that. Can Be, offered to challenge America can be limited. So the Falcons you put up points. The game should be over now the falcons defense does have some questions, but I do think they would put voices should be enough to create distance in the bears it'd be able to pick up the whip. Obviously the bears are companies just gave a lot of confidence. As they should. To An older, start the season I mean. I saw some Falcon fans tweet about it. They don't necessarily want the T. Blues remember they're only to the of this dot over by any stretch. But people really what? Dad Queen Gone. And so. It's Cadillac Party. Wants. To lose. The ship but the Chicago bears going to three eight. Oh probably be one of the young shockers of this early season. I'm going to very hastily picked the Falcons to win this game. I think they they are the better team. Now whether they actually leads to the results on Sunday we'll see but I'm going to go the Falcons to win this game as they are the better team to me. I, Think Matt Ryan will continue his great start to the season. I think are often will continue to click. There are questions of Julio. Jones will play this Sunday I. Think he will. He usually plays to injuries when his Julio not move something now he did. Have a setback in practice but. You know I think. He should be able to go. and honestly, if he didn't would be great for my fantasy team either but I got kindergarten if I need to step up or racial gauge. So yeah. But yeah with the Falcons. Next game forty niners, giants, I've this Games interesting. Remember last week. The point is playing metlife stadium loss Garoppolo MOATS are. Bosa, Thomas they lost a lot of guys last week. And the. Giants team who? Looks like they'll probably be at the bottom of the barrel the NFC east. Especially after losing saquon Barkley. For? The. season. When I players were scared to play at metlife stadium because they felt like the the stadium turf in and everything was the reason for a lot of those injuries that they had last week when they played the jets. Now. I it's. It's interesting to see what it's GONNA be 'cause they're playing a backup quarterback backup running backs they got sued offensive Lineman. I still don't have Richard Sherman. You have a lot of injuries. and. So this may be a winnable game for the giants I mean, you don't really know what to expect from the forty niners this week. So it'd be you say here they of Jimmy, Garoppolo at least played to me I. Think you would be like, okay for eight hours I think we'd still be able to win, but we don't know how good the Ford back for Norwich backup QB may play. I mean, luckily, the void ours have a lot of defensive talent still. So it's not like older pleaded they have nobody but. It. Isn't as comfortable as A. But I would still in my right mind, go with the four years to win the game.

Sustainability with Queer Brown Vegan

"I, say us. It's so lovely to meet you. I'm so glad to be talking to you today. Thank you so much again for having me glad Chris. I'm over the moon as you know because we we're we're super fans like the. Stock you on Instagram we found profile didn't we and I think I just loved title Queer Brown Vegan I thought it was. NEAT and I love the way you present your ideas like it's really colorful and beautifully made I. Think it's a really good thing you're doing that you're. Talking about. Urgent subject but making it kind of. Fascinating and interesting and alive for people not to skating because that's one of the things we've. Talked about like, how do you? Do what you're doing, which is well, what do you? What what would you say? You do tell us what you how you define yourself. I would describe yourself as a queer environmental educated that provides accessible environmental education on content for anyone interested in learning about environmentalism is as you live zero waste. What does that? What does that mean? Zero ways you know for a lot of has a broad term of. The Way to define it but zero waste and lowest to me it looks into higher able to create redesign the way that you view plastic and so understanding it from an individual impact, but also a global impact. So understanding that reducing your waste in different ways but also acknowledging the fact that the plastic crisis is a global environmental justice that is disproportionately harming black indigenous people clerked me globally and now we have countries that. That heavily exploited by colonialism are dealing with the amounts of waste that is usually delivered from countries like the UK and United States with waste where do you know what are you? What are you talking to us from? Los Angeles. Oh I thought you are and I thought you were in Queens New York, is that I recently moved back home grown up but I'll be back in New York and twenty one. Okay. So you're. So you're I in La boy and tell us your story because your upbringing really affected how you have come to this. Place as the career, Brian Vegan doesn't it growing up? My parents had immigrated an one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty s onto la from Mexico and so we grew up low income living in a way with affordable housing programs or programs that are sponsored by the government and so many of these. In, Los Angeles are known to live in communities are already low income but that are nearby toxic facilities or places that generate noise pollution in some sense in. So my aspects of environmentalism grew at a young age because of like based off survival. So it wasn't necessarily because I thought about being was about others what we have. So have to reuse it and use what I have to, and as I got older I. Started learning about environmentalism making these connections within myself saying like wise the air quality in my neighborhood this way why? What is climate change? How does that interconnect to me and so the older are realizing my own identity great being clear and then I realized the people who usually talk to me or that represented in the environmental spheres We're usually straight white men and so I ask myself like Oh. Is this this is Interesting because I don't see anyone who looks like or comes from a community, and so the ones university I realized the fact that many of the classes were dominated by, of course, white students and not to say that it was bad. But it was to say that there was a lack of diversity representation within those movements in you know having the lack of support having to deal with certain spaces in the environmental field dealing. With Homophobia in like thirty remarks being told to me I realized that that wasn't necessarily space I needed to be an and so leaving after college that's something I want to cultivate it because had I known that there was a educator growing up or had had a mentor like that it would have changed my outlook in environmentalism but instead I had to go through all those hurdles and challenges to unlearn that things that I was taught. To really get to where I'm at today. So you felt that you were being given environmentalism from a very straight white mine ankle and you're like a whole other spectrum out here is. It's interesting that. As. Well, isn't it like do how poverty and like like I remember like growing up like I went to a very smart school wherever and money, and so if you brought in your lunch in a plastic pot, for example, it was kind of considered like you poor. So, there's so much attachment to. What did they do? What did they push wants? Did they went to the school lunches or? Like, yeah, it was just buy something or you know you just go out and buy something whereas like. and. So there's a lot of like use. The is about image know like if I can afford to buy this thing that I can throw away. Of. People. See people striving for that. Almost it's funny. Do you do you think that is I think the idea of consumerism is so ingrained in all of us you know whether would be in our television show our media art magazine anything read it's all about Centrum consumers at a young age even to I remember kids like shaming. We're having thirsted close or even does the fact of like reusing resource that is now seen today as like environmentally-friendly now, which is great to see that shift but back then I, think it's because we ingrained in our own children in our own parents consumerism is a good thing. Yeah well, especially in the say, that's like the kind of the currency celebrity and. Consumers Arctic the to. What degree

Expectation Hangover! How To Cure Expectations In Life! | Christine Hassler | Write Your Legend Podcast with Apollonia Ponti - burst 01

"Can you kind of go into a little bit more about like when week or clinging to expectations were waiting for something to happen and then we're giving our power away. Yeah. So expectations people often say, well I want to have expectations because I want to have goals and signposts in life. I am Want to have visions of what I want and I'm like well that's much different than expectation an expectation is defined as an eager anticipation for something to happen. It's sort of like I'm an expectation that like someone my prince charming is going to come knock on my door and like everything's going to be great and that's very different than a goal which is a very clear co-creative, you know that we you know that you're co-creating with the universe kind of plan. So when we are in that place of coming from expectations, we are giving our power away because we're waiting for something to happen. We're trying to live up the expectations of others or The elusive expectations of ourselves and it's an out in approach to life of Faith rather than in out. I'd rather not have any expectations of anyone else or myself. I want to have agreements with people. I want to have integrity with myself but expectations. Yep. Waiting for something like my birthday's coming up. I could have the expectation that my husband is going to know exactly what I want to do on my birthday. And if he doesn't get it right waging myself up for disappointment, but I've disempowered myself in that moment because I'm expecting him to know what to do. Whereas I've been very clear but I don't watch prize party. I don't want anything big. This is what I would like now from a demanding point of view, but just from an agreement point of view and said, you're welcome surprise me with whatever but these are the things I for sure don't want and hear the things that I really do want and that's not being controlling that's not being overpowering or domineering it's being really clear because my birthday something that's important to me other things in life. Don't I, you know, I don't have like super big agreements or rules with but if if I'm not clear about it, then I'm just just giving my power away and same thing with even if we want to like Chunk it out from my very specific my new birthday issue to what's going on in the world a lot of us right. Now. I have the expectation that some power power that be whatever that is a sort all this out for us, you know. Yeah Queen covid racial Injustice the politics that are a little you know, like Health Care, there's so many things were environment if we just expect that someone else or some organization is going to solve it for us, then we're giving our power away.

New York, Portland and Seattle named 'anarchist jurisdictions', could lose federal funding

"Like a calendar. De Blasio calls it another one of Donald Trump's games, labeling New York City Seattle, Portland, Oregon as anarchist jurisdictions and threatening to withhold federal funding. Since, as he says, the Democratic leaders in those cities have not agreed to have federal help with their rising crime rates. Attorney General William Bar speaking about it today, he says federal tax dollars are being wasted in New York. And they will withhold money until the city can I'm quoting him here until the city can perform the basic function of government and start protecting their own citizens.

Well the que- needs her caviar. So you can go ahead and have now as I mentioned the Queen has been an avid traveler and it said that she always tried to be measured in her souvenir taking now. There was a time when she got an elephant but For the most part she would try to find very specific things to the places that she was traveling so when she'd go to like Hawaii she'd want to bring back away and like what we do with refrigerator magnets exactly and so. Some countries have given gifts in that same in that same spirit so The United States not long ago sent her a pair of cowboy boots clumping around the halls of Buckingham Palace. She's never been spotted wearing them bed. So what we've learned I think in this is this is true if she wanted.

"Queen Slim is written written by Lena Waif and directed by Melina Matt soukous who is making her feature directing debut she's done TV and lots of music videos included beyonce's formation. Wasted about soukous collaborated on an emmy winning episode of Master of none before making Queen and slim and there were a number of reasons why Melina thought the film should be set. That in Ohio Lena had written into the script Because I'll still has the death penalty so obviously it was really important to queens character because she defends people on death row but I had traveled to Ohio for a Nike Commercial. A couple of years before and I have been to Cleveland and there was a area of Cleveland. No nothing really black neighborhood and shot. I still had the location pictures on my own In on this one St Col. Saint Clair sounds really pushing. Start there I wanted to start right in a really cold environment and have them travel south through the story. I always think of it as a reverse sleeve escape. Narrative in Cleveland was also the last album underground railroad before slaves. It gets a candidate so I thought that was really pertinent like metaphorically for our our film and then also it's Weird Tamir. Rice was killed. You know where I got a chance to visit the playground Where he was shot dead and so I just felt like it was the right place for us? He wrote it in and then like you know. Visually had been there I had I have witnessed like how pertinent and was us and then when you know a lot of other people on our crew. We're really pushing for us to just stay in New Orleans because that's where we were already shooting and obviously for budget reasons. It's easier to suit in one place. But I wanted to travel with them and I wanted them to feel that journey as actors and let that inform their performance so we went up to Cleveland and while we were scouting we were on this. This at St Clair and it was my director scout so we hadn't decided definitely the go there but maybe and a half hours like Tuesday night. At least six black people were pulled over by COPS In a half hour time period and one of them was in a white accord and that you are watching happen as where we're scouting which blocks at me and he wanted to. Yeah and we have been saying in downtown Cleveland where there was no police presence so this is like a trap in a black neighborhood to just like get at people and in a half hour they were pulled over and there was this. One car was a accord and it with the Cleveland. Police car was behind him. Pull them over and my production designer designer took a shot of it and I was like that's slim slim. That's his car that's who he is. He's every man and we have to be here. I want to play audio from a police. Stop I I think you're GonNa know what this is. This is Sandra Bland being pulled over in Texas. Hello Ma'am what it takes told. The reason for crashed opposite in fail. You fail to single aging at if you give me a few minutes right yeah okay now you. This is Yoga. How are you seem very irritated? I am I really have tapped typical speeding up tailing so move. Move over eight. You stop so I am a little here but that doesn't stop you from giving tickets. Are you done. You asked me what I told program so now you might put your cigarette please remind I'm in my car. Put out you can step on out now. I don't have to spend my step out of the car still so far out of the car. I have the right to do that. You have the right now. Step out or I will remove used to talk to you other than to identify myself now I will remove remove. What is it like to hear that? I've watched that video hundreds of times and every comma here. It is debilitating infuriating. It's upsetting obviously This emotional you know I wanted. I saw so much myself I self Sandra Bland and actually have written. We worked on an episode of massive. Non Call Thanksgiving and she wrote in those lines. That could have been any of US and I. I remember watching that video over and over because I wanted Queens reactions to some way mirrors Andrew Bland when dare pulled over because they are pulled over for no reason just like she uh-huh and I should add. Sandra Bland died in police custody. Three days later she was found hanged energy and you know he was being picked on and prodded and harassed by policemen policeman that she pulled over to get out of his way you know and then he pulled her over not using now yeah to me. It's just traumatizing. And I think people well don't realize for particularly black people when these stories come across our news fees are televisions. Our instagram fees is. It's not just another story is not just a piece of news to us. It's like a piece of US dies every time we hear about AH person being a black person bid an unarmed black person being killed by police officer I. It's it's we are all living in a state of trauma summer and I think that's where the movie was absolutely born out of for me and I and I think that's why I knew I would. I Need Molina to do it with me because it it was something so personal. It wasn't so dark and is very few people I trust with that level of vulnerability that I was in that space that I was in and already trusted. Molina once was something very vulnerable and She had me and it with care and we bonded Very quickly and so with this it was just. It was important that we take those ninety to go. We're talking with lean away. The writer of Queen Slim. I'm an Molina Matt. Soukous who directed the film. Is it fair to say that Queen Slim Blake Tamir. Rice like Sandra Bland. Like Eric Gardner are fighting hum award that they don't even know the part of absolutely I feel like listening to that. We've we feel like we're hunted you know and I think that that's shown in just hearing those those words this war going on and you know Lena called another day genocide which is exactly right. I want to play another clip from the film and this is I think kind of a moment of reckoning between Queen and Slim. I'm GonNa play it and then we'll talk about the look on Slim's face in this conversation. Where are you going to call my family? If you don't know what they say there's no guarantee. Aw you're a black man. killed a cab took his guy. I'm not a criminal. You aren't and on ask you me about the look on Daniel clue what's face in that same everything he's ever with his emotion. You know he feels the weight he feels the gravity. He's starting to understand how he will be viewed that he is now viewed as a monster you know when he was in the right when he was trying to defend himself and and his woman in that moment but I think you know his eyes I think in in everything especially that one. They really transform in the weight of what just happened. Starting to land on him Yeah I think to me the the look that it breaks my heart every time. I've seen the movie but it's just after that when he says I just WanNa go home and he's pleading go home and I want to see my family and I. I think that is interesting because I I remember writing that and as a person who is not super close family. But I was thinking in that moment when you're afraid all you want to do is get home to your family because that's all you can think about and it's also too I think about Fruitvale station you know. And that moment where Michael Jordan says. I just WANNA go home. You know. That's where we all want. We all want to go home and wait on me because I am close to my family. So like in times of extreme need or terror or fear. That's where I wanna go go to the next to my mom and my father won't ever look at me as a criminal you know and I think he has that same satisfaction and eleven. His home slim has a line in the movie. I ain't gon bend the world which feels to me like a little bit of an echo of what Martin Luther King Junior said which is the arc of the moral universe is as long but it bends toward justice. Thank slim says I can't change it well. A little bit of it is slim. Doesn't feel deal is if he needs to be some famous person. He doesn't need to leave a mark on the world to know that he existed. And there's something very honorable about that and and I'm speaking to you as a person who went away. Who is known like people are aware of who I am or somebody could say that you know? I'm leaving a mark on the world but what I think I wrestle with is that everyone's life is just as valid as mine just because of how I make a living or the fact that I've done something that people notice doesn't mean that my life is more valuable in someone else's and I think that's really what I wanted to do with slim is that he represents the majority that they're working every day trying to be the best person that he can be and we. He has a very different experience of that because he's a black man so his life is political local whether he likes it or not. Why were they named Queen Slim slim sort of born out of like old school black lingo and terms of like if you look at old like black lack seventies movies? You'll hear black may refer to each other's eyewitness lamb was going on and then the quaint thing is almost self explanatory. And I think we're GONNA clean.

"To your original report? When someone called about a smashed front window or stolen jewelry box, uniformed officers went to the scene and wrote it up. Getting a statement from the victim and enumerating the basic facts, the time, the location, what had been stolen the burglary, investigators followed up often from a seated position if you treated detective work like a desk, job, occasionally exerting yourself by picking up the telephone, you could push a new report off your desk in less than an hour. Nobody ever solved a case by making a single phone call, but it hardly mattered given how rarely burglary. Detectives recovered people's losses. There were nearly two hundred thousand burglaries robberies and thefts in Chicago in nineteen seventy four an increase of eighteen percent over the previous year, Sherwin territory. What the department called area to on. Chicago's southeast side was the busiest in the city with thirty nine. Nine burglaries. A day, a big picture thinker wouldn't have lasted a week in area to those stats told a depressing story one filled with the kind of hopeless characters who subsisted on the proceeds from petty crimes. But sure, when knew it wasn't on him to fix Chicago. He handled what he could see what he could touch. He preferred to check out crime scenes himself to imagine who'd been there and what they done. He broke down each new assignment into a series of predictable tasks doing all the things a conscientious burglary detective was supposed to do. He talked to the right people chased the right leads and wrote everything up in clear. Concise reports the door opened at eighty to twenty one south CLYDE and Sherwin took stock of the woman standing in front of him. Four days earlier, Linda Taylor, had called area to headquarters to say that her home had been burglarized. Taylor appeared to be in her late thirties. She was just over five feet tall with olive skin and dark heavy-lidded is her face a long oval tapering to a sharply. Jutting chin seemed vaguely elfin her eyebrows. Plucked into thin arcs made her look like an old fashioned glamour girl. She had a pronounced cupid's bow and our upper lip. And when she talked that lip curled back to reveal the glint of gold dental work Taylor. Looked as though she was expecting company. Her makeup was pristine, her outfit, fashionable and snug. As he stepped into the apartment Sherwin noticed that Taylor kept a tidy house. Sometimes if you went out on a case right away, he could see where a burglar had barged in, but there were no signs of forced entry here. The bolt on Taylor's front door appeared on damaged nothing was broken or scattered around Sherwin. Glanced, again, at the uniformed officers original report, could they go through that list of missing items one more time a large green refrigerator, complete with ice maker. Yes, she told him that was gone. A gold stove. Yes stolen. It was a weird list hospital end tables, a grandfather clock to large Chinese lamps large elephant, figurines, a pair of speakers that lit up to the beat of music, thousands of dollars worth of household furnish. Things every piece of it ensured. Most burglars snatched whatever they could fit in their hands. A ring a necklace, a stereo, a small TV set stealing a refrigerator and hospital end tables, Boehlke objects. You couldn't hustle out of an apartment without attracting. Attention didn't make much sense Sherwin went back to his clipboard and studied the report he asked Taylor to explain again how the thieves had gotten away with her belongings. She pointed to a window in her kitchen. An opening no more than a couple of feet across Taylor's version of events was preposterous to fit a double door refrigerator through that narrow gap. You'd have to cut it in half the detective didn't press her. For more details he thanked Taylor for her cooperation. And he promised to come around again, just as soon as he developed any leads. On his way out. Sure. When rang some more doorbells, but he couldn't find any neighbors had seen a mysterious stranger wander off with a large appliance as he walked back to the car. He thought about the clean apartment, the tiny window and the woman with the olive skin in the heavy lipid is there was something so familiar about Linda Taylor. He was sure he'd had this exact case with this exact woman, he just couldn't remember where or when. Sure. When new Linda Taylor street, he'd grown up just a few miles away in an all white neighborhood, close to what was then the southern tip of the city's black belt back then in the nineteen forties. Segregation had been enforced with covenants that forbade the sale of properties to for instance, every person, having one eighth part or more of negro blood, the black belts borders expanded in nineteen forty eight when the supreme court struck down those covenants, but segregation didn't end with the stroke of pen, new public housing developments kept black people confined to black enclaves, as did violence, perpetrated by whites against those brave enough to breach longstanding barriers when civil rights activists and Queen of gospel, Mahalia Jackson moved to the south side in nineteen fifty-six, her white neighbors shot. BB pellets through the windows of her house. Other black newcomers had their homes. Ransacked and set on fire. The Sherwin 's like many white families packed up, and moved when Chicago's racial boundaries shifted settling in the area around midway airport. Thirty years later. The detective scoped out south side neighborhoods that bore little resemblance to the one he'd lived in a child. Some of the areas in his jurisdiction had changed from middle class white, enclaves to middle-class black ones the city's most beloved athlete cubs legend, Ernie banks lived with his family on a tree lined street and Chatham on his daily rounds Sherwin, passed by black owned banks, the headquarters of the Johnson products company manufacturer of the hair straight ner ultra sheen, and the office of our Eugene pinch him. A renowned black defense attorney, and advocate for the disenfranchised Sherwin. Also rolled through hollowed out streets dotted with liquor stores and check, cashing operations. South chicago. The part of town, where Linda Taylor lived had long been the city's smoke belching industrial corridor home to US steals, mammoth, south works, and countless other plants factories, and forges. But between nineteen sixty seven and nineteen seventy seven the number of people working in manufacturing in Chicago proper would plummet by thirty three percent. White flight took both jobs and services to the suburbs, cutting off thousands of black Chicagoans from steady employment and weakening, the foundations of once stable communities area to burglary. Detectives didn't spend their days chasing after master criminals, they arrested juvenile's and addicts young men who were more desperate than cunning Sherwin. Drove to grand crossing and south shore and Poelman stopping off at apartment buildings and restaurants to jot down notes about busted back doors and stolen cash. He spent most days. Two feet to the left or right. Of Jerry Kush with one man driving in the morning and the other in the afternoon. Kush was the best partner Sherwin had ever had honest and reliable. But they weren't close friends while Kushner flashy clothes Sherwin, looked and dressed like a standard issue, detective with short hair and daily uniform of a sport coat and tie Kush. Never stopped talking about his kids, his marital woes, and anything else that came to mind, Sherwin didn't wanna probe too, far below the surface, sometimes they'd hit the bars after work, but Sherwin didn't like to drink. He hated the sensation of losing control Sherwin felt most comfortable when he was by himself in high school. He didn't go to parties or dances. He was too self conscious to look at girls, much less talk to them. He'd found his confidence in the Marine Corps. When he came home after basic training, Sherwin war has dress blues everywhere. And he sat the way marine was supposed to sit his spine, not touching the back of his chair in nineteen sixty two after a stint as a tank commander on Okinawa. He joined up with the Chicago police department as a beat cop assigned to neighborhoods on the west and southeast sides. He could go from helping a woman deliver a baby to disarming a man threatening his girlfriend with a butcher knife, Sherwin, loved the unpredictability of police work. And he took pride in protecting Chicago and its citizens. There were times though, when he thought those citizens actions were indefensible Sherwin watched the west side ignite following Martin Luther King junior's assassination, in April nineteen sixty eight and he was on duty a few months later during the clashes between protesters and cops at the democratic convention. A study commissioned by mayor Richard, J Daley found that the MLK riots stemmed from pent up aggressions among black Chicagoans, infuriated by poor schools, inadequate housing and racially discriminatory, policing, while a federal report on the democratic convention documented unrestrained an indiscriminate police violence in response to demonstrators. Provocations Sherwin didn't come to the same conclusions. He'd feared for his life during the Westside riots, and he'd seen protesters attack policemen at the convention. He was certain that he and his fellow officers were the good, guys. Is no matter what was happening in Chicago. Nobody had the right to tear up the city. After Sherwin made detective his life, got a lot more sedate. He in Kush still answered the occasional in-progress call and they still tussled with burglars now. And then one time they went to make an arrest and found their suspect hiding in a closet. The man charged out completely naked and Kush hit him on the head with a portable radio Sherwin, and Kush talked about that one for years, but naked guys didn't jump out of closets on the average Monday afternoon. Sherwin believed in the work he was doing, but he wasn't always stimulated by it. The job could be relentless and dispiriting most days. The detectives added a bunch of new reports to a case load that was already overwhelming after work, the thirty five year old police officer would go back to his two bedroom apartment and do laundry, some days, he'd head out to a religion class. He was studying to be a Catholic so he could share a faith with his fiancee. He'd wake up early before three AM to go for a run at Northwestern University before work with the sky pitch black and nobody else around. He had time to indulge the half formed ideas bouncing around his head the morning after his visit to the tidy apartment on south CLYDE avenue Sherwin mind kept wandering back to Linda Taylor. He'd gone to her home on August twelve expecting to investigate a burglary. He'd left a half hour later, thinking he needed to investigate the burglary victim. Lamar Jones couldn't remember the last time something interesting happened to him at work. The dental clinic at Great Lakes. Naval training center was an assembly line, a fifty chair operation that treated a hundred thousand recruits and seven hundred thousand cavities each year, the twenty one year old new would each day would bring, and he knew what would happen the day after and the following week..

"And as I began to research, the case, I had originally thought of it very much kind of traditional crime narrative of kind of singular, evil figure who had committed these crimes, and that was FBI's theory of the case and over time. I began to gather evidence from the sage through archives that showed there were really many, many more murders scores. More murders unresolved, many of them improperly investigated or covered up, and I tried to investigate many of them. I thought it was so important to try to find answers. But in so many of the cases, you know, all the witnesses are deceased now the victims are deceased, the suspects are deceased, and so how do you handle that? And in some of the cases, I was able to gather enough circumstantial evidence that indicated who was responsible and in other cases, I couldn't. And so one of the challenges for me was to not obscure that debt, which I think, author, sometimes want to do, because they want to be all knowing and give satisfaction on all fronts to the reader, and yet, I thought it was so important to reveal that doubt and kind of incorporate that doubt. But it was a real struggle at first because in many ways that doubt was essential to the theme of the. Book which was the systematic cover up in which these crimes to haunt families. You know, less than essentially later still haunting families who don't yet know who is the precise perpetrator of a murder in their family. I think that's so important. What David's saying and, and hard, one is to let readers know what you don't know and what you can't know and have faith in them that you're not going to be able to answer any question, and that ends up weirdly. I mean, I know sort of growing, as a journalist and writer, you know, I would be afraid to do that at an earlier point. Well, how can I admit that that's going to call my thirty into question? And the truth is just the opposite. I mean, I think even in this era of fake news, you know, an all these questions about a thority of fact, you know, the role that integrity plays and personal honesty, a whether that's with sources editors or with a reader. I think that really goes a long way that we're in conversation. In here, we're going on this journey together and that doesn't mean I'm sitting in the thority seat. And I have all the answers. People really underestimate the power that are writer admitting. They can't know something has for a reader, and the reader's trust in their out of state. So in the slate piece that I did that the became the book I had a, a section towards the ends about Taylor and sociopathic she behaved in many ways that seem irrational. She treated, people extremely callously. She used people she abused her own family. There were a lot of, of markers of the specific type of mental illness, and then as I was writing the book, and I actually learned more. I got some psych evaluations that had been done on her when she got into the federal mental health system, the choice that I made was. Despite actually knowing more, I decided to say less about what I thought was going on and her brain, just because it felt more honest, to me to admit that I didn't know and I can present what these various other people thought, but as David analyze were saying, I think, I hope that you can earn the trust of readers that, when you do, say something authoritatively, they'll trust you. If the flip side, as when you had met gaps in your knowledge, I get a story once about the world's greatest Sherlock Holmes scholar is found Garrett it mysterious circumstances, and all these kind of Sherlock ins and couldn't Toyland taken up the case, investigated it, you know, by the end I had a very strong. Circumstantial case of what happened and I remember speaking to the sister of the Sherlock Holmes scholar. And I remember saying, you know, we have to learn to live with. Doubts. And I think that's the difference between Sherlock Holmes fairy tales and real festive reporting. Thanks for listening. Thanks to our members who support helps make our journalism possible..

"Hello, and welcome to this very special bonus episode of the Queen. I'm Dan Quayle. I'm better slates books coverage in the author of how to be a family, which will be published in September. I'm joined here. Slates DC studio by my colleague Josh Levin. Hi, Josh Haden. So as listeners of the podcast know this series is a companion to Joshua's book, the Queen the forgotten life behind an American myth. Josh spent years reporting the story, which first appeared in slate in two thousand thirteen now for many nonfiction writers and journalists a book like the Queen, you know, a full length work of investigative reporting is sort of the gold standard of projects. That thing you want to have the chance to write at least once in your career, but how does writing such thing actually happen? How do you get the story? How do you find information that the government or that corporations? Don't want you to have. And how do you get stories from people who not wanna talk to you? And how do you then turn all that reporting into a book that is hopefully? Engaging accurate. Fair funny, interesting. So I'm going to discuss the solid Josh today, and we are joined by three remarkable authors who also worked in this mode. I I'll welcome David grant New Yorker staff writer and the author. Recently of killers of the flower moon. Hi, David Kate to be, we're also joined by Elisa griswald winner of the two thousand nineteen Pulitzer prize for her book, amity and prosperity. One family and the fracturing of America highlights high. And finally, we're joined by James Furman junior, the J skelly Wright professor of law at Yale, and winner of the two thousand eighteen Pulitzer prize for his book locking up our own crime and punishment and black America. Hi, james. Hi, I'm so glad to have all of you here. Thank you for joining us. I'd love to just bounce questions around all of us. But if you have something, you want to add, even if you, you know, I haven't called your name, please feel free to jump in. I'm not like the Proctor but let's start with a really basic question. But one that I think a lot of writers struggle with as they're trying to make. This transition. How do you know when something is a book and it's not just, you know, a piece, why don't we start with Josh Levin, my piece became a book. So I feel a very qualified to answer this question. It took me about a year from concept, Texaco on the piece, they ran and slate in two thousand thirteen ranted about seventeen thousand words which reputedly as the longest piece that slate had ever run at that point. And there was a sense, I think, internally, Dan, that it was more comprehensive than at perhaps, he writes on the right to be. But there was there were so many holes in the story. And so many things that I wanted to learn about this woman, Linda Taylor, who has known as the welfare Queen, and about who she really was beyond the this legend about her. I felt personally like I had only scratched the surface. But the thing that I really wanted to get at, and the book was the larger framework of her story, the worlds in which she operated, but also, the world's in that, that made her into this, this figure this person who became so important in our politics than our policy-making, why this woman at this place at this time. How did those things converge and turn her into this kind of icon, but also a person who herself was her, her personal history was a raised. And I felt like having the space to explore that. And a buck was something that I wanted to do, and that I felt would be rewarding to readers so for you, as a mix of frustration at the stuff that you hadn't gotten yet, and a desire to tell a bigger story than the piece self was able to tell. Yeah, I think that's right. James for you. What was it was? There are also some inciting incident that made you think, oh, this is a big enough story that this is a book. I think for me it was a little bit different in some sense is easier to get to the idea that it was a book because I knew from the beginning that I was trying to write the story of what happened in the last fifty years as the America embarked on this project that we now call mass incarceration. And I wanted to tell that story through the lens of African American officials black makers legislators judges prosecutors in DC and around the country. So just the scope upfront suggested that it might be worthy of book length treatment. I think the biggest obstacle for me to getting to the idea of being a book is a little is that I'm different from the others in that I'm a law. Professor, not a writer or reporter and law. Professors, don't study form very much in our writing, which is why a lot of, you know, law review articles are not that accessible. We were. Subject matter specialists, but we don't think that much about how to create a form, that would be accessible to a broader audience. So for me, the actually the biggest challenge wasn't even so much thinking through the content the substance, but thinking through will, how do I make this inform a book that somebody might wanna read David and Eliza you both if I'm correct killers of the flower, moon and avenue and prosperity. Both had their roots in stories that you wrote, as well, right? Yeah, for me. No actually killers of the flower, boom, began as a book and ended as a book. I had I did not do that a magazine piece interestingly enough. I've had to experiences in my first book last city is he did begin as an article much, like, Josh, and it was a case, where I finished the piece about this British explorer disappeared in the Amazon, and I felt. That I had finished. There were so many places to go and killers of the flower moon. It was a little bit more like James. It's talking about the, the canvas was so sprawling about this, racial injustice covered so many years had so many individuals that the really it was almost they, they couldn't figure out how to excerpt the book, because it's just to do many people to do open a narrative, and, and spending too many years. But for me, you know, the difference between generally speaking article, or book is, does it have enough dimensions places to go avenues to explore? Also, does the subject matter have enough residence that it justifies hopefully for the reader staying with something larger I might do a short story. That's like a lark like the search for the giant squid that I don't think should be a book something like the systematic murder of the osage in the early twentieth century for oil money for the twentieth century felt like something that had lots of dimensions. Had the birth of the FBI, and I guess the other question, always me too, with the book is, is it something I wanna spend years with an, that's a really important question, too, because I have had subject matters that I thought could be books, but I would have no desire to spend three to five years, researching it. And that's another important element. That goes into the into the equation. You made the decision to write your book, you, definitely were committing to a lot of extremely indepth research, and reporting on the ground. Where's that a consideration for you as well? Whether this was a story you wanted to live with that long your. Oh my goodness. Yes. I mean I really hoped that by writing an article, I would do right by the subject, and be able to put it down and that did not happen. You know. So, but when I wrote the article, you know, there was a sick family animals were dying and they were just at the beginning of what happened to be a multi year lawsuit and investigation with both state and federal authorities into what had gone wrong at this oil and gas site. But yeah, I mean when I wrote that article, we knew very little, you know, the family knew that there was benzine until you wing in their bodies. They knew they'd lost pets. They knew that a fourteen year old had arsenic poisoning, but that's about all they knew that had a pretty steep learning curve to how do you put down on a page? What's known and what's not known and what can't be known because with a lot of environmental related illness. You know, the causal link between the chemical or what goes wrong on a site, and the sick kids or the dead animals that link is never going to be substantial enough to satisfy reader. So it was tricky ground from the beginning. And then yeah, it was seven years. It was seven years of following this family and following their frustrating maddening walk through the court system through regulation. It was that's what it entailed. Something really sparked for me. They're one of the biggest challenges for me throughout the whole process. Elisa was sorting things into categories of things that I not to be too Rumsfeld in here, but the kind of known unknowns, that I known announce just the category of things that I don't know now, but I could be reasonably expected to know or figure out if I just kind of bash on it for long enough, and the things that it's probably not a good idea for me to be spending my time trying to sort out and sort through, even if they're big and fundamental mysteries that would speak to something big in the in the world in which I was able to figure them out. So how do you think through that problem allies and I'm curious for what other people think too well for me? I mean, the one of the greatest injustices involved with many corporations and oil and gas. Just an example of it, but they control all information about the substances. They're using about when they're using them and regulators are religious subject to their whims of releasing them. Right. So any kind of definitive information, for instance, for many, many years, the one of the main questions is where did these chemicals go? Underground, did they end up in people's drinking water? It took four or five years of this lawsuit for, you know, us kind of puzzling this out to figure out that, in fact, the company knew because the company had used tracers, so the company knew had chemical and radioactive tracers in the water that would have allowed them to map exactly where those chemicals went so that disparity between and that really reveals the sort of greater corporate power of what, what people do already know and what they're not gonna tell you is is really stunning at something I learned a great deal about. And I would have. I would have just been absolutely sunk if I didn't have the legal records that from the two lawyers who made all these documents public, John and Kendra Smith are their names now. They're not environmental attorneys, or even plaintiff attorneys Kendra the wife in this husband and wife team is corporate defense attorney who works for railroads mostly defending them from bestest cases. And she was so disgusted with what she saw in this case that she decided to take on this plane of case. So she had the training super expensive training of like into being an industrial hygienist being able to puzzle out what these chemicals actually meant what test results meant what testing methods men and so with her help, I was able to understand what really needed to be established in order for the book to make any sense at all. David, and James has yours embarking on these projects. How did you kind of sort, the questions that needed to be answered out? Did you use similar categories to joshes of these are the things that I think I can figure out? And these are the things that I'll probably never find out or are you more optimistic than pessimistic. John. Well, first of all, I just want to say, I'm so glad that lawyers are heroes in elisas story. That's, that's kind of exciting in rare. They're probably they're probably plenty of villains as well. I would imagine for me. I think it was about figuring out which topics I wasn't gonna talk about, again, not. Because I couldn't maybe figure that now because again, I'm writing about us a topic that I'm are already been studying for most of my career. But because they didn't fit into the narrative in some way, do you not talk to academics all the time who say, I want to write a book that reaches a wider audience. What advice do you have? And one of the things that I'm always telling people is that you've got to leave a whole bunch of stuff out on and for academic sets really counter intuitive. Because typically when academics write books, the biggest thing that can get you criticized by fellow academics is not talking about something that might. Ten generally relevant. But of course, if you want people to read your book, you have to not talk about a lot of tangents are else the book just becomes a series of tangents. So for me, it was really cutting, cutting cutting it was. Yeah, this is interesting. This is important, but it's got to go in a separate article or a separate book, or it will never get written. It's going to way down my story if I try to include it, that's funny. I have basically have a folder, which is we're all the digression go, which are usually, you know, three thousand words of history that I have spent weeks researching some point of context, and then my wife reads, it and says that's really good. You got to cut it. And I ended up stealing it down to a paragraph so that the narrative keeps moving and the paragraph, I hope is really good because it's the most informed paragraph you'd ever have. But, but I do think that is essential to keep people, and keep it moving, and, and make sure you give the reader enough to know things in the context, but not go too far off. I would say would killers of the flower moon, I encountered something that was a real challenge beyond the kind of normal narrative structure challenge of what do you put in a book, and what don't you put in a book, which had to do with again? These crimes took place in the early twentieth century when those age where the wealthiest people per capita in the world because of oil under the land, and they began to be surly murdered..

"March of nineteen seventy five the Chicago Tribune publishes the story and the headline is prob- aid, Queen tied, a kidnapping the first sentence is Linda Taylor dubbed, Chicago's welfare Queen, because she is suspected of swindling Illinois out of more than one hundred fifty four thousand dollars in fraudulent welfare payments is under investigation in the nineteen sixty four Frans. Ac baby kidnapping the story later says that sources in the FBI reported that the case was reopened after Chicago police, and FBI agents, uncovered information, the could link Miss Taylor to the crime. When I, I wrote the piece, I late about Linda Taylor. That piece came out and two thousand thirteen as I was doing my, my research. I found these old articles in the Tribune and elsewhere about the FRANZ at kidnapping and about. Taylor's possible connection to it. And so I was looking around and seeing, you know, was there ever any resolution to this, you know, what happened and I found a short message that you had turned out had posted on a message board called orphan memories. Do you remember posting that message? I sure do that was one of the first steps, I took yellow me read that message. And then you can can talk about it says, hi, I was identified by the FBI as Paul just a FRANZ act. The kidnapped baby from Michael Reese hospital in Chicago. I was abandoned in Newark, New Jersey on July second eighteen sixty five found in a stroller outside of variety store, I was placed in an orphanage when FBI found me, I was placed enough Auster home and given the name, Scott McKinley. I have just found out that I am not Paul Joseph Ron Zach. I need help to find out who I am. So what? It had happened just before you posted. That message. I actually was able to have a DNA test on with my parents it. Oh, it was, it was something I thought about for years and years, like, I even joked about when my parents come out to visit me, a Las Vegas to see this either the granddaughter that I would get hairs off their pillow. You know, do stuff like that. But the tests weren't available in knowing if you could find them, they were so expensive, and it's got couldn't afford it. So in two thousand twelve I was at CBS, and I happened to find this kit by gene, it was like twenty five dollars. So I bought the kit. I brought it home and put it in the closet, and I thought, you know, this is it I'm gonna find a way to ask my parents, whom I I love with all my art to take this test, and it's a quite a while. But I was I was actually able to finally do it. And the results showed that there was essentially zero chance that you are related to Chester Dora rep. Yeah. The, the guy who called me on the phone after AMI jump through months of security hoops. He said there is no remote possibility that you're Paul Franek. And that, you know, even though I felt it for. So so long. I really believe I wasn't Paul. But once I heard it it's like my life, just stopped everything I thought he knew about myself, my life that I was I was, you know, taught to believe just vanished. You know who was? I how old them I am. I really Catholic and my polish in all these things that, that I was told. And it just it just vanished. You can really see that. And that message board posts that I that I read your reaching out, it seems kind of in desparation to fines, if anybody can can help you seems like you're really struggling with how to handle this. It's like a huge, you know bomb, that's dropped the explodes your whole life. Will you know, John? Will really hit me was I wasn't really concerned about myself. I wanted to find out where Paul was what happened too much my parents real child, because this horrible tragedy happened to them and it wasn't solved. And I was hoping that he would be out there and I'd be able to find him. So we've been kind of working on this and parallel. Right. You, you have been following so many different leads, you know, we I chatted with each other, I think, in two thousand and thirteen and you had a Facebook page, where people would give you kind of tips and clues. You did a bunch of TV spots that kicked up a bunch of interest in the case. And then on my side, I've been reporting out the Linda Taylor story and trying to look into not only this kidnapping, but other kidnappings that she she dead or may have done. Let me run through Paul some of the evidence against Taylor. That was laid out back in the nineteen seventies. And just so folks are clear before I got in touch with you. You had never heard of. Any suggestion that Linda Taylor, the so called welfare Queen had anything to do with this, or had even been suspected of having anything to do with us? No, I never even heard her name. Okay. So the evidence against Taylor, as laid out I in the Chicago Tribune in March nineteen seventy five was one of her ex-husband's had told FBI agents that she appeared one day in the mid nineteen sixty s with a newborn baby, although she had not been pregnant Taylor's explanation. Was that she hadn't realized she was pregnant until she gave birth that morning. The Tribune also said that a woman calling herself Connie read now as a name, the Taylor had used in the nineteen forty s had been at the hospital at the time of baby Paul's abduction. Finally the Tribune noted that the Chicago police had received a tip a week after the kidnapping that a person who could have been the kidnapper had tried to rent an apartment under the name constants Wakefield, which was another name the Taylor, you. Used. All right. Then in may nineteen seventy seven after Taylor was convicted of welfare fraud. The Tribune picked up the story again and wrote that a man named Samuel Harper said he was certain that Taylor had stolen the FRANZ act, baby. This man Sam Harper said the Taylor had several children and infants all white that were staying with her. The Tribune also reported that Harper said he assured Taylor was the kidnapper, because she left that day dressed in a white uniform, and the description of the kidnapper matched Taylor. The Tribune also said that Linda Taylor had even filed a police report after the kidnapping saying she had seen the kidnapper with the baby. You know when you hear all that stuff. Paul. You've heard so many different theories for what happened, I can remember looking on that Facebook page and elsewhere. And people saying, I think it might be this person. I think it might be that person what he what do you make of of it? And, you know, in fairness, this was printed in the Chicago Tribune, which is one of the leading newspapers and the country is this isn't just like some crank theory. Absolutely. And when I spoke to you about this. I thought, wow. I think Josh onto something here. I think that just Linda Taylor might have been the one that kidnapped hall when you hear of this specific evidence against her. What do you think? I had a couple of things that kept me kind of away from thinking my mom, I think, would have noticed if she was, you know, African American, and she was certainly taller than Linda Taylor Taylor's height. And you know, in, in the voice. So I I just I had a hard time really thinking it was her. But then again, you don't know until you know, right? I'm kinda with you where I've ended up with all of this is that I know for a fact that Taylor kidnapped children, she was charged with it. I have first hand accounts from people who know that she cannot kids if, if not baby, Paul know that she was in the vicinity at that time I know for a fact that she would dress as a nurse and would say that she was a nurse. That being said there are reasons to believe that she didn't do at the height thing. I think is, is one that I think by all accounts, the kidnapper was something like five six or five seven, and she is much shorter than that. And, you know, there are, there are other reasons too. I think maybe where we both have landed on this Paul is that if we were in charge of the investigation back, then, she's somebody that would have been a person of interest that you would have wanted to talk to. Oh, absolutely. For a very, very long time with the swinging naked light bulb. We're, we're right there. We're in the in.

"Taylor claimed. Her name was Constance Wakefield, and that she was the air to gambling, kingpins, vast fortune. The ensuing court hearing proved the Taylor was lying. But so we're Taylor's white relatives who considered her parentage a secret that needed to be hidden. I certainly knew Easter by. These are members of the family talking about this horrible thing that they consider shame in the family that the comms real father was black Taylor was affectively disowned, because she was mixed race. She'd spend the rest of her life, latching onto other people's families. Sometimes she helped them more often. She took advantage of them. When I started reporting on Linda Taylor. One of the first people, I spoke to was her ex husband. Lamar Jones, Taylor Jones, knew each other for less than a week before. They got married in August nineteen seventy four about a week after their wedding Taylor got arrested for welfare fraud their marriage broke up another few weeks after that when Taylor stole Joneses TV set and fled Tarazona. When I talked to Jones on the phone. He had no idea whether Taylor was alive. He hadn't heard a word from her since their briefed dalliance in the nineteen seventies in the course of my research. I made contact with dozens of people who knew Linda Taylor, personally other than Taylor's children. I didn't encounter a single soul. Who'd stayed in contact with her for a long stretch of time. The story was always the same Taylor emerge from out of nowhere upended everything in her path then vanished without leaving a forwarding address in the final episode of this series. I'm going to tell two stories about the lives Linda Taylor changed. The first takes place in the nineteen fifties.

"Six years ago, a friend sent me an article from the nineteen seventy s about a woman named Linda Taylor. It said the Taylor had committed welfare fraud to the tune of one hundred fifty four thousand dollars in a single year using eighty different aliases. It also said that she owned a bunch of luxury cars had filed a fraudulent police report about stolen furs and had been preparing to open a medical office posing as Dr another article I found said that Linda Taylor, the so-called welfare Queen could change from black to wait to Latin with a mere change of a wig before I read those stories. I didn't know that the welfare Queen stereotype had originated with a real person. A black woman with a for court and fancy cars living, a life of luxury, thanks to unearned government checks. That vicious caricature had been based on Linda Taylor, then used to demonize those who could barely afford a winter coat let alone for that caricature has persisted decade. After decade as aid to the poor has gotten slashed by Republican and democratic administrations. Taylor. Briefly became infamous in the nineteen seventies newspapers wrote up her outrageous exploits, and Ronald Reagan railed against her during his first presidential campaign. But just as quickly as she'd scandalized, the nation Linda Taylor disappeared from view, though.

"Hi, I'm Josh Levin, host of slates, new podcast miniseries. The queen. I, I heard Linda, Taylor's name, six years ago. One of the first stories I read about her said, she'd stolen one hundred fifty four thousand dollars in welfare money in a single year that she drove a bunch of fancy cars, and that she used eighty different aliases, another article said, the Taylor the quote welfare Queen could change from black to wait to Latin with Amir change of a wig. But while the myth of the welfare Queen endured Linda Taylor herself vanished from our collective memory almost forty years after Taylor became known as the welfare Queen. I started investigating what she'd really done, and what had happened to her on this podcast. I'm going to tell you what I found, I'll start with how the legend of Linda Taylor began. She was being painted as this big time crook. And she was indicative of all black females, who were on welfare. I'll also get into who Taylor really was in some ways she was victim. Let the Ray lesson of this for me is that people will come their own conclusions based on what their prejudices are. But she was also a villain a Conard est a kidnapper and possibly even a murderer. My grandfather was telling me that she had kidnapped me and they didn't know where. Was he had me solesky here that because he says she was just evil? By the end of the series, you'll know what was done to lend detailer, what she deter others, and what was done in her name.

"Take a bribe, but I'll tell you what it's also easy to get caught and we will catch you and hold you accountable. Now, no court date has been set so far. CVS this morning tried to contact all of the defendants in this case and a lawyer for one of them said in a statement, it's important to remember. These are only allegations and all the accused are to be presumed innocent, let's not rush to judgment. Gayle dean. Thank you. All right. That's one of the reasons why do that like public school. State education is because in Detroit is one example. The other cities. Over the school public publicly funded all state, funded educational systems. It public schools, basically, school education, muddied up by politics. No, today's park has once again, it's terrible McQueen at school Seoul versus Queen. Elizabeth, we're going to take a snapshot, a very small microscope and sits snaps of Aretha Franklin, and here's the context, Aretha Franklin, Queen of soul in Queen Elizabeth Queen of. England. We're going to take a snapshot of these two ladies. Basically when it comes to generational? Well. Also known as you know, which was which is created through a state plan. Now, Queen Elizabeth was not as a kid and public schools. She had private tutors, private education. Whereas. Aretha franklin. He's a product of a Detroit public schools is. Aretha Franklin enough behind the eight million dollar state. Now, Queen Elizabeth is a recipient. Of generational. Well, we're, we're going to go matter of fact, we're going to go back in time and tell you how hers stake guts to where his today. And what are we left behind with eight million dollars? 'cause essentially, they're eight million dollars could be basically her for Suns could be on their way to be become billionaires, but here's applying ornament or Retha Franklin left behind no will. So we're going to take a look at some fundamental distinctions. I mean, it can't be because Queen Elizabeth like say, is a recipient of generational wealth through a state frame which anybody was in Santa. My voice can take the exact same steps is the people did in her fam- when number one suggest my foot, if you got kids in public schools rankings but take them out. Queen Elizabeth was basically to a very hard agreed home school. Anybody wasn't asylum voice their kids, grandkids, break, anchor, York, those children. I mean, you gotta go through their parents and all this other stuff. But essentially I can't see any upside the public state funded kings granted, not all school systems or like Detroit. So Washington DC's or 'cause they and other public school systems. I get. Right. They are networking opportunities within a publicly funded platform I get, but. Well, maybe as me, I'm just prejudiced. We can call them away in. But Queen Elizabeth wreck that whole bloodline. Home school. So the money was muddled up.
