"Where so happier with us. Thanks for joining us on the podcast platform you early adopters. And of course our beloved audience on cbs and received the attorney general. The district of columbia is our special guests. Mr attorney general because we like to call this are game segment a little bit. We light it up ever so slightly. So i have three questions. The show is going on four years old and every single guest on this show. We've done it every single week. Those four years has answered this question. So in whichever order you prefer most influential book in your life all time or one of your all time favorite movies. And if you're going to indulge yourself musically what kind of music artist or genre are you most likely to listen to okay. Let's jump to music wise. I love j cole. J cole is a deep lyricist rapper. On i think most poignantly talks about the trauma in hurt That underlies so many communities in the united states my favorite song of his friends. So those are you know j cole. No talk with what that's about those who don't check it out. Just read the lyrics so that geico on my my. I'll tell you what i'm reading right now. I've got isabel wilkerson. Cast on my desk. And i gotta tell you i'm gonna prepared. I've got my guy you're rawls l. Great book and i just think this is an extraordinary book for thinking about so many issues that we talked about our earlier conversation race nationalism globalism technology and the like the title for my podcast listeners. Sure twenty-one lessons for the twenty first century it's an extraordinary book written by the author of said's right excellent excellent and one of your favorite all time favorite movie. You know i'm gonna date myself myself. I think i like bryan song back in the day and gale sayers of course is extraordinary. Running back for the chicago bears ryan piccolo. May i thought that transcended the boundaries of race in a way that was prophetic. And actually to be honest with you I think after. I read that book saw the movie. I i'm not. I treat everybody the same. The i will tell you mr attorney general. I'm actually glad you mentioned that. You're the first person who's ever mentioned that movie. I saw that it was a tv movie or made tv movie or Anyway it was kind of an event. I i was maybe eight or nine years old and it is the first thing i ever saw in a movie theater or on television. That made me cry uncontrollably. I could not stop weeping after the end of that movie and for so many different reasons but it also was enormously instructive to me as someone going up in san diego california. Not a place where there was anywhere in this again. This'll be like one thousand nine hundred ninety. So i saw on the news strife over busing and lots of communities in america. We really didn't have that in san diego. What bussing we did have was pretty much accepted and nobody really was in conflict over it. But i didn't know that many african american children at all but that movie. And that story. Sensitized me from that point forward about some of these things that previous to that. I had no sense. I didn't have any awareness of i. Just wasn't sensitized to it so it's an enormously important cultural moment i think for me the first example of art that can just crush you emotionally and just get you to a completely different place so i totally agree with you and thank you for sharing. That i could feel your recollection palpably. I want to tell you. I played sports growing up a saint. John's high school where your kids went to school and then university of pennsylvania on the basketball team. I will be honest with you. I was in a lot of the locker rooms. And there is a lot of jocularity in the rooms and there was a honestly an anti gay lesbian debt to lot of the locker room chatter. My mother gave me a book that moved me just as bryan song moved. You called giovanni is room by james ball. When i read that book in tenth grade honestly. I became unsure. Not a fun guy in the locker room. Because i didn't participate. In any of the banter around differences around treating people like others were dehumanizing someone just because of how they are who they love halima. Wow well that's a tremendous gift to receive from your mother. And i think anyone who's participated in sports certainly of that era the seventies eighties nineties can identify with what you said. You heard I certainly heard it. When i was playing sports in high school. I didn't play sports in college. But it was part of the mystique part of the attitude and part of the projection. I think of athletes of that era and we have as you said earlier. Talking about the evolution of our country evolved in lots of different ways. And sometimes i wonder mr attorney general. We don't give ourselves enough credit as a country we understandably look at the things that we don't do well but we have evolved and we move sometimes with tremendous speed once we set our minds to it. Well i think that's right. And i think that we have to accentuate the progress. That's not relying or resting on your laurels. Right you wanna do better as a competitor every day. And so i think the objective for americans those who love america is for us to improve every day towards actual glade living out actualising our greatest virtues equality for all fairness injustice those enduring principles. Let's be proud of our accomplishments. But let's wake up the next day to take it even close to the ideal. That's the voice of carl rec- and he is the attorney. General of the district columbia. He's been our special guest this week. Mr.

"From cbs news. This is the takeout with major garrett. Cole received the attorney general. The district of columbia is our special guest. And mr attorney general Continuing our conversation not only about who president elect biden will or will not pick us attorney. General of deeper issue is what can be done within a new incoming biden administration to address some of these issues. You've described as a high priority for the country and for you criminal justice reform. Does that have to be something that congress can only do or are there specific actions right out of the gate that he incoming biden administration and should take really great question. There are not significant. Actions that the biden administration and the new attorney general can take a right away I the new general can get behind funding of local and state governments so that can maintain that data is really important in the criminal justice system and a lot of states and a lot of localities. Don't have the money to keep data with data we can better identify racial disparities and other disparities in also identify the evidence based practices that actually reduce crime. So that's really work. Second i think the department of justice can work with congress in passing the clean slate act which allows for the ceiling were expunged of records of individuals of long since paid their debt to society and unfortunately had scarlet letter of felon f on their forehead. That hurts them. It jobs housing in the like. I'm additionally prison reform is incredibly important. We have a a prison system right now that frankly does not train educate and otherwise put people who are behind bars in position to live. Lives lives following the law. When they come out you need to train people put resources into that process so those are three quick in ready items that the department of justice under president biden literally began and they want to the president president trump. That is often talked about the first step back. As a significant legislative accomplishment of his administration and the first step back was an early an initial effort to address and redress parts of the federal criminal code but it implies a second step a third step and if republicans were in favor of the first they ought to be in favor of the second. Do you believe something of that. Ilk could happen even a closely divided house and senate which it's going to be regardless of the outcome of the january fifth runoffs georgia. Yes and i have to believe in the power of the yes. I give credit. Where credit is due. Bipartisan congress and the president of the united states got the i don give A lot of credit also the national association of attorneys general worked really hard to support congress and president trump in passing that law. The second dirt step act must go farther than the first. What we've got to do is really narrowed. The door the front door of the criminal justice system in only bring in the. Jails those people who are to you me in our community. We punish too many misdemeanors by putting them in jail. Think about the george floyd case. One moment remember what he was accused of. Perhaps passing counterfeit dollar to a convenience store. What happened. He ended up being killed on the streets for that in the district of columbia major. You'll be happy to know that. The office of attorney general working with the metropolitan police department have issued a new program where we enhanced citations. Hey if you mess up for misdemeanor in you're not causing anyone any physical harm we're going to give you a ticket and ask you to come back to court early results. We're doing this now for nine months. Is that the citation program has not resulted in violent crime in other words narrow the front door of the jails and the criminal justice system. Treat kids like kids right. We know that the brain data makes clear. You have three kids. You know that our kids are going to act up as they continue to mature and develop of course. Kids can be punished. They create harm raw but they should be treated as kids and after a few years. Be able to move on from stay. I have so much more right and just to go down a couple of other names. That are seared into our memory. Michael brown stolen cigars. That's a low level modest time incident. Eric garner was essentially a cigarette caper a very low level. I mean neither. One of those things. I as i hear you say mr attorney general warranted. The kind of aggressive police intervention and should have been treated as crime sufficient for where they ultimately escalated to and they're not the only two but those are the two that instantly spring to my mind. Those are fantastic. Examples in those are the real interactions. That law enforcement makes every single day with residents throughout the country. And clearly what we gotta do to protect law enforcement as well as residents is make a distinction between misdemeanors in violent offenses. Treat those misdemeanors nonviolent offenses in a way where people come to court at a certain set time in place. Don't bring him into the system. And i want to ask you something and i apologize mighty in advance because this is a little dance at a little bit in the weeds. But it's something. I've read a lot about and i want to get your interpretation of one of the things that happened in ferguson was not just about michael brown. It was about a long history of the city. Police department being used by the city to administer tickets and then you couldn't pay the tickets and then finds increased and your penalties increase on top of the underlying ticket and that was a budget mechanism for the city of ferguson missouri. Civil asset forfeiture essentially is the dressed up term for it lots of jurisdictions. Use this and it seems to me. Mr attorney general quite separate from the police department. This becomes a tool that divides the community. Not only number one. It is a kind of a revenue source that cities get addicted to and in deepens all of these senses of grievance isolation and hostility fines fees and penalties going to the government as a result of all of these minor interactions. That needn't even result in most cases in an arrest needing certainly result in someone going to jail. And the fact is guess. What happens when you levy a fine. A penalty were fee on someone who's poor they can't make payment and guess what happens when you triple that. They can't make payment and in certain jurisdictions when they can't make payment yes what happens to them they get hauled into court another area of reform. It's huge is probation and parole. Four point five million. Americans are on probation or parole. The overwhelming majority of times that they are cited for infractions are literally minor infractions. A bad drug test perhaps shoplifting..

Cheques, imbalances: Americas fraught stimulus

"America's house of representatives passed another version of stimulus bill yesterday. This one promising. Two thousand dollar checks to the majority of americans use would make a difference in the lives of americans who are facing the greatest uncertainty that they've experienced for many of them in their lifetime. It's unclear if the measure will pass in the senate making it yet another twist in a last minute. Saga to provide economic assistance to millions of struggling american workers and businesses the original two point three trillion dollar spending package included nine hundred billion dollars for pandemic relief in addition to funding the federal government for the next year. They was hastily negotiated in the run-up to christmas by a bipartisan group including president. Trump's treasury secretary steve mnuchin but after it was passed by the house and the senate. Mr trump criticized the bill saying it didn't do enough to help. Ordinary americans in really is a disgrace for example among the more than five thousand pages in this bill in the end. He didn't make good on his threat to veto the legislation on sunday but he demanded another congressional vote on increasing the value of the stimulus checks. A measure supported by many more democrats than republicans. I worry that this wapping four. Hundred and sixty. Three billion dollars won't do what's needed stimulate the economy or get the jobless back to work. Whatever the outcome the relief couldn't be more needed. Government has been deadlocked on the matter for months and in just over three weeks. It'll be president. Joe biden who inherited the budget. The stimulus plans and the problems brought about by all the footdragging. Congress rarely compromises these days injuries. Cologne is the economists. Washington correspondent and it was truly a compromise measure. That will do some good I think for the american people. So what's in the bill actually been passed by both houses and signed by president trump. the new sumo's spill that president trump signed into law includes a couple of important provision. One of which is another round of direct checks civil. Go to americans. These are going to be half as big as the ones that were passed in march so these will be six hundred dollars per person as opposed to twelve hundred and there's also going to be a new federal top in unemployment benefits. Most americans have beginning six hundred dollars a week until those benefits expired back in august. The new benefits are going to last for eleven weeks and they will be about three hundred dollars per week. And there's a few other things it's very long. Bill is fifty six hundred pages. Almost that was negotiated very much at the last minute. Among the more important parts are another three hundred billion or so which are going to be allocated for the payment protection program which subsidizes businesses to make sure that they don't have fire people and why the president trump had Such a hard time signing why the delay. That's an interesting question. Depends on how generous he wanted to the president. Many people pointed out the seeming lack of logic about refusing to sign a bill that had been negotiated with his administration. Nancy pelosi of negotiating with steve mnuchin. The treasury secretary about the contours of the bill and this compromise was was forged with mitch. Mcconnell the republican leader in the senate there had been little indication before the bill was actually passed that donald trump had match of objection to it wants. It came to his desk. He thought of the bill was pathetic and that it needed to have much more generous person check but ultimately donald trump decided not to hold up the bill and and this is a relief package that americans have really been waiting some time for. Yeah absolutely the initial cares. Act was a huge injection of stimulus. But it was passed all the way back in march and a lot of the major provisions of the cares act expired back in august and interestingly because that was more than two trillion dollar bill what you saw in the first month of the pandemic was actually pretty solid progress against already in america. You saw a twenty five percent reduction from its pre pandemic levels and what you've seen since the expiration of those benefits is a very fast resurgent so all of those gains in poverty reduction have been Erase this point and if you look at other indicators of hardship whether it's the sheriff families who say that they can't afford food thirteen percent of american families right now are saying that they have not had enough to eat in the last week from the latest census bureau. Polls you see thirty percent of americans who are renting say that they have little to no confidence that they will be able to pay next month's rent and those measures that we've been tracking have gone up significantly in the past couple of months and put this into some context. How does this This relief package on the whole compare with with similar ones offered by other countries britain germany. And so on so at this point america. We'll have done over three trillion dollars of direct stimulus. And if you compare. America to other countries on the basis of how much money does it immediately inject into the economy. America looks fairly outstanding. Where america doesn't look as generous on the stimulus front is on its guarantee. Liabilities made with businesses so european countries are much more likely to guarantee loans use the central bank much more than america has used the fed as part of their strategy for addressing similar. So depending on whether or not you think. Direct relief to americans is more important You could say that america's really well if you think that subsidising businesses and making sure that they stay open is the vital point of covid relief that you could say that the europeans have done better but another facet of this was that the bill apparently contains what president trump called the pork but a lot of provisions that aren't sort of directly related in that way it does and that's in part because it was attached to the bill that keeps the government open in funded for the next year and that obviously has a lot of unrelated provisions because it is the bill that funds entire federal government. You know there are measures on a teddy roosevelt presidential library. Independent commission to oversee horse racing. Racine those kinds of things have been snuck in but also some provisions that might not have been obviously related to covid but that are probably good like an end to the practice of surprise billing which is basically where you go to a hospital. That's in your insurance network. You're treated by dr who is affiliated with a different network and you get a very large bill and all this is happening of course in the in the twilight of mr trump's presidency. Where does this leave. Joe biden as as he starts to come in this really sets the initial conditions for joe biden's presidency a lot of the unemployment benefits for example will expire in mid march which will mean that there will be some period of renegotiation. We saw chuck schumer. Who is the democratic leader in the senate say that the bill will only partially cover some of the depths that americans are in right now economically. Unfortunately the troubles are so deep. The abysses so long that we need more and this is just a first step. This is an emergency. We need a second bill to continue. So that's going to set up a new challenge for them in the opening days of the administration when biden would probably rather try and pursue a big legislative victory like infrastructure. Or something else. A lot of it is gonna turn on what happens in the upcoming senate races in georgia. The runoffs will decide the last two seasons senate and that will determine whether or not democrats or republicans control it if republicans keep those seats and democrats. Don't have control of the senate. I think it's probably quite likely that this is the last big stimulus measure that americans are gonna see addressed. Thank you very much for your time. Thanks so much for having

Alamo Drafthouse CEO On Navigating The Pandemic

"Here's shelley taylor. Ceo elon draft. S shelley. taylor. You the alamo draft house. Welcome to decoder. Thank you glad to be here. I was just reading your bio in the backstory here. I i got to start with this. You became the ceo of alamo draft house on april thirtieth. So you have stepped into chaos. I think elmo actually shut down forty one theaters in march. What was this recruiting pitch. Like like they call you and say hey are you interested. Were already in the works. Just it seems like a wild way to become the ceo. Movie theater chain. Yeah it is. It does feel wild but the it was in the works at christmas wintom and i met and started talking and drawn to this incredible brand and this opportunity to you know. Help take something iconic And growing even larger right and then all of a sudden the pandemic and here we are so. We've got this little issue to get through that we can go back to the original plans. What was just the first day. April thirtieth you show up. You got to introduce yourself to ever like there's usually a script right follows. You say something like i. I just wanna listen. There's like the usual stuff. Was it very different this time or did you just come running the little of both right. I mean you talk about like just really wanting to listen and to get to know people. You don't have the advantage of the water cooler in the proximity But at the same time there's nothing like a crisis to create a need for connection and speed to trust and really fortunate that the company and the teammates i've been so welcoming and and willing to just assume good and thompson and wanna move forward versus having to do some of that initial stuff so it was pretty fast and no one's kicked me out where seven munson and i'm still here. Things are going pretty well considering so i always try to ask everybody to begin about. Decision making frameworks before alamo draft house. You will see a large group of planet fitness locations. You were at disney before that. Tell me about your general way of making decisions. How do you think about evaluating your choices and actually make coming to a decision. I think it's a couple of things one is just knowing who and what you are Is the beauty of everywhere. I've worked has had a really clear sense of their purpose and values and the problems that they're trying to solve in this world So always starting with that framework and You know driving from there. I think that one of the things that i took from starbucks and hug valued over the years is that you always put people into that that equation So when you're looking at a decision at the stake holders it's your customers you know it's the people on your team You know having all those all those points of view and then sometimes it is the broader community depending on what the product is. And so i think if you start there and then you put it in a good good dose of data and a good dose of your gut usually. That's a great way to go. I mean that's pretty simple and obviously depending on the complexity of what you bring in or don't bring in but you know it's it really is values and people and direction to other reason. I asked that question is because right. Now you're managing in a crisis where there is a flood of data. You have a very physical plant kind of business. People go to a movie theater and sit down and stay there for a while. How are you managing the influx of covid information. There's a massively disjointed federal and state response there's people who are refusing to wear masters right before he came on new york city closed at schools. Again it feels like there's just a flow of information about the pandemic and how it's going and how we're handling it you say there's a lot of data but the data is a messy. The points of view are messy. How are you just managing that. Yeah that's a great question. And i appreciate. And i really want to reemphasize the lack of coordinated government approach is like crippling the nation. And if there is a message. And i know lots of people are saying this but if there is a message to our government right now It is critical that they have a coordinated approach. And the way that we're approaching a is one you know just my own prayer experience living and working in china and seeing how this has been approached in the past You know helps watching countries that are you know and businesses in countries that are making good. Decisions helps And then we've just been just trying to take a very steady approach. And that is with the information that we do now and that is not constantly changing and some of that is but there are a few constance out. There you know is how can we make our experience as safe as possible from purchasing your ticket to the minute you leave the theater and we haven't wavered from that you know we've done a lot of you know pretty scrappy fast innovation for online ordering Both of tickets and food Eat a how you come into the theater doing the spacing that people. So that six foot distance we had before it was popular You know we said that we were gonna enforce mass for everybody. We thought about our kitchens creating a smaller menu so that we can social distance within our kitchens. How do we not breathe on to touch food. How do we help. People exit the theater. I mean you just name it. We've taken every single precaution that we can and we've gone as far as we could. So we've just said what is the safest ridge of possibility and yes. There's going to be this constant complex information but until there's something that comes in that says differently we're not gonna waiver And and that's suspend our approach. And i don't know with all the variables out there how anyone can do it differently. Is that a set of advisors team members. You needed to build. I feel like most movie theater chain in a lot of like epidemiologists on staff before covid but now all of us are you know we're all looking for the that expertise while looking for those guidelines. Have you built that muscle and that skill evaluate those decisions. Well we do have a really great source of a lot of people who are willing to help us. Whether it's you know our our p. firm ultimately capital gives us a ton of information and advice whether it's you know our our insurance and brokers on that side bringing a ton of advice and then you know we've got strong relationships with University of texas. Ut you know and the information that you can get you know publicly so you know. We've we've probably done with a lot of people do we. Don't have a ton of money right now. Our resources are very skinny. We've had to kind of do it yourself as best as possible. And we'll continue to to probably operate in that method but it comes back to that need for a government approach to this and the government really could be doing a better job at providing clear guidance that does not consistently changed to businesses and quite frankly equitable to businesses equitable. I just small examples in some cities. We're not allowed to open. Are we can open. But we can't serve food yet. The restaurant next door consider food That just doesn't make sense You know in in how you operate you know what's the logic and a simple clear set of criteria that everyone operates off of because part of the problem. Is this the noise and the and the confusion that goes out to the to arc arc our customers. Our you know it safe here. But it's not safe with you and and people can't discern that you know so it really should be agnostic to the business what what is safe. And what's not to the best that we know today right. Yeah asking for a lot probably well. there's new administration. We'll see how it goes us. One of the things about the pandemic that i've heard from many ceo's executives at this is still rated trends that we already saw coming in some cases. Those trends are positive. We've seen a massive celebration in commerce. Ever already saw that coming. We just turn the knob up. There's been a pretty loud conversation for years about the future of movie theaters and some of that is played out in different ways. Like rom coms. Don't really get made by hollywood but every other netflix show is like basically around calm. And so we've just seen the dynamics of the industry change. I've always thought of alamo draft house has being slightly different than your average trig antic chain movie theater you have. Food isn't experience. You're running old movies. People come there as a social event. Do you see it as this is accelerating the trend. That was already coming or you know you started by saying we'll just get back to work when it's over. Do you see this. As as an aberration on the planet you already had for for your company so yes the world is accelerating in many ways. What won't go out of style. His community on social experiences. And so i think while the industry was right for disruption and racine that alamos secret sauce really right is creating. These communal experiences for people bringing the community together to laugh cry gas. Whatever but have fun together and that won't go out of style and so for us it will be going back to the secret sauce of what makes us special

Tuning into Our Breath

"Practice. Simple breathing techniques like inhaling through the nose for four count holding our breath for six count and exhaling out the mouth for an eight count. Can have measurable effects on our relaxation response. In fact, let's just do that right now. Just. We're going to just do one just one round where we're going to breathe it in for four hold for six in out for eight. Okay. So. Everybody exhale together. exhale. Now breathing through the nose for four in one, two, three, four, hold your breath for six, two, three, four, five, six, exhale out the mouth for eight three four. Five, six, seven, eight. Even. Just one breath we can feel how the pair sympathetic nervous system that relaxation response. Is affected. So we'll be practicing this method in our facebook live group, this four, six, eight which if you haven't joined the facebook live I encourage you to do. So it's a great way to connect with other meditators in the challenge and to ask any questions you have I'll I'll answer any questions that you have about meditation. But back to the breath now. Why is there so much emphasis placed on the breath in meditation. There's a few reasons, but the principal one is because the breath is what is with us even when we're not aware of it. That is to say is an audit function. This makes the breath the ideal companion on our meditation path because it's so reliable it's always there for us. So I, encourage you to get acquainted with your breath and rely on meditation practices that utilize the breath. Your breath is your ideal ally on the spiritual path. Also, the many scientific studies now show what Yogis and meditators and mystics throughout the ages have known. Focusing on the breath slows down the racine thinking mine because the relaxation response is immediately stimulated when we place our attention on the breath. I often encouraged people when we're practicing mindfulness of breathing. To rest your attention on the breath they're lightly. Like a butterfly landing on a flower, it's very light touch but one that has beautiful results. During the facebook live group, all-share a couple, other breeding techniques and will discuss.

Negative Mount Pleasant

"So there's this tiny town in Wisconsin called Mount pleasant populations just twenty, six, thousand people, village and life in Mount. Pleasant is usually is quiet as you'd expect. Their suburb of Racine, home of malted milk and the sight of some of America's largest cabbage farms. But that's the city now presents the suburb place were nothing really happens. Until last year when the village became the site of a completely unprecedented massive international experiment. Truth. Even Mundane. It's going to tell the story this fall. I went to pleasant to meet this woman named Kelly Gallaher. Hi. Halley. commanded she lives in his ivy-covered split. Level House my home is located about. A little bit over a mile from from Lake Michigan so. Did she say? It's really beautiful out here by receiving. It's like a very light blue almost like a Caribbean vibe. It's it's all about the light I think it's magical. I think. I even like how the lake looks on my gps. Like it that much Kelly has been here for thirty years and she used to be an arts educator. But now she's basically retired. When did you start getting involved in kind of more? I don't I don't know what to call it activism or just Kinda village. What would you call it well? What if there is a name? I think other people have a lot of names for for what I do but. Ones I I probably wouldn't care to repeat the polite name that Kelly's detractors might use for her is busy body. She's an extremely vocal participant and the town's local democracy and her main stage is this place called village. Okay. The hours upon us I would. Like to open the village board meeting, Order Religions. Village Hall which sits right next to the local white is where the residents of mount pleasant all gather twice a month with their village government to talk about all the local issues that need fixing through weeds this high in the yard of one of the vacation homes this. Hi. It's been vacant for I. Don't know how many years gale for years. It's been vacant. We're going to have some recommendations and numbers for the Lake Park Fluffy Rosen, which is very Army number one on our agenda, our softball game we had this last Sunday for the case athletics. That went over very well to I didn't get any reports of injuries so we're good. Pictures in the paper though in Racine County the mount. Pleasant. Village Hall meetings are famous very well attended. They actually taped the meetings and upload them to the website, and if you're like me and have watched every single wine, you will look forward to the moment when Kelly good evening my name is Kelly Gallaher. Her Red Hair Hoop earrings steps up to the Mike Lees Captain Brian. Smith. Collected thirty three, thousand, seven, hundred and fourteen dollars an overtime pay in addition to his salary vacation. Her tally is basically the local civics watchdog. A joint parks has had no minutes published since April two, thousand, fourteen almost every week she uses her allotted three minutes to make it very clear to the people in power that she has her eye on them is outrageous by mount pleasant standards. Hauled corruption and we intend to get to the bottom of it. Thank you. Thank you for weekly Sunshine and good share. That man who sounds very exasperated that is Dave degroot village president. He is sitting behind this big long table in this large office chair at the center of the screen, and he's flanked on both sides by his six village trustees. Dave. Runs this meeting David Kelly. Like each other they disagree on pretty much. Every single thing to do with the future of Mount Pleasant. Kelly has a sign on her front lawn that says David degroot must resign and David grew lives ten doors down from her. It's an intense block and Kelly told me that it got especially bad about a year ago when she was helping Dave's opponent in the village election. The previous March when he was running for office, he sent out a press release a basically accusing me of egging his house. Egging his house Yes yes. He filed a police report and suggested in his press release that I had been involved in the attack the political at an actual literal egg attack on his home, which the police report did not verify at all. In fact, it was the the described it as as teenagers and a single egg that was tossed on his driveway was hardly an attack I was not there. I only buy organic eggs which are far too expensive to throw it. Anyone's house let alone someone I don't like it was it was ridiculous. So it's fair to say that my relationship with with him was contentious I think he's a fool and a terrible per village president.

The four Circuit Court of Appeals Three Judge Panel Very Conservative Group A laugh. This out of court dismissed our case. We appealed it before the entire four circuit panel and just last week on a ninety six decisive basis, they found that the emoluments clause is not what trump said is phony. It's real on ants.

Mr Trump has used. The state apparatus, and he is given his his conduct before the election given US conduct that lead to impeachment given his firing of an inspector generals and giving his behavior across the board. Have you ever been personally concerned about threats from him or his people? I, I guess the answer is no. And I think it's because I have some semblance of of faith you know from family, spirituality and also religion, and I subscribe to a little Vignette in Julius Caesar. Shakespeare talked about the cowards die many times before their deaths, the valiant member taste of death, but once seem strange that men should fear death unnecessary will come when it will come. So I. Don't worry about that other stuff. and I don't read the comments in the articles. That's where the real crazies appear. Let me share one Vignette with you. I interacted with the President I've actually been over the White House several times at his and other people's invitations. And he has an unusual charm. It's very different from a Bill Clinton I worked for Bill. Clinton, Bill Clinton's charm was really based on his. Like you to wanting to get to know you and giving you getting you to really feel that your story mattered to him. President Trump's charm is completely opposite. It's all trump coming at you. where he is just talking about himself. Right at you. But I gotTA. Tell you I did sense. A Charismatic Air and I see that people tend to follow that. He wants trying to ingratiate himself. With me at an event. Where he called me out and thanked me for something. And claim to actually have no. Hey, girl I feel like I know what he said. And I stood up and I wish I had a subpoena. But I stood up and I did see a secret service. Stand up as well I said Sir I. Think I know you too, and I do know the president. The president is a self centered. honestly I think maniacal leader who is okay with hurting people so long it as it helps him. Right. He seems the well. There's some obviously psychological issues that that others. Who are far more credential than we are talking about that, but it's but I think it's a great point he's he is very charismatic and he's very shrewd and makes. It, no, he's no dummy.

How did that job impact you? Tremendously first of all you know I was very blessed and fortunate to have the opportunity to serve as managing partner. Back then in two thousand six when I became managing partner I was the first african-american managing partner. Am Law one hundred firm? It was lonely. At the top or bottom our way you look at it there weren't any other black folks in the top one hundred and I gotTA. Tell you I remember going to a bunch of law firm management conferences as you know. Jeff Boban Pretty Social Guy get on with just about anybody, but I found those to be some of the most challenging social environments I'd ever navigated from me. Kind of lead me to believe that you know what there's a reasonable. Hi, there have been other African Americans as managing partners up at law firms, law firms are pretty status quo oriented of slow to change slow to develop. An insular organizations. Nonetheless I took the opportunity to try to do all I could to advance the firm, and and also put a different face. If you will on what a law firm leader might look like it might apply. So Carl. Having lived that literally. Give us some perspective on on what we do to make the next car. Racine not feel that way, or how do we make more call? Racine's million dollar question there and what you're really asking is how can law firms be more nurturing more supportive? Of Minority and women lawyers, I think a lot of it has to do with changing the culture of a law firm. as as two women, of course what that means is that they've got to be supportive of women as women enter the time period where they consider having families, a law firm of success stories are plenty, and most of them tend to be white men. And Trust me I've seen those men have gotten to go under their houses and I've seen who's running the show. It's usually a full-time wife..

And the lake is still frigid immediate is, is a couple of websites. You can go to the to the leg temperatures, and it's like still forty five degrees in the middle of the lake at along the shoreline of Milwaukee about fifty now that can fluctuate because when the wind shift, and so on the water moves in and out some of the water from the middle of lake looms over here, and so on, but by and large the middle of the lake is colder than the shores. And here's stating the obvious. The farther sells you are the warmer. The lake is, but it's taking so long to warm up. So when you get these days in which warm air comes into the west, but the winds come off the east very cold moist air. It's very warm air, and you just get all of this fog. It's. I was talking like March and April we're gonna have a late summer this year because the lake is a warming up because we haven't had any we'd had really no warm days in spring in. That was the phenomenon there. Anyway, the wermer kind of clear skies, blue let out for at least a while today. So what's the temperature at the lake fight? Right. You know, you've got an airport temperature from us seventy what do we had about our station on eighty figure sixty nightside. Eighty two and hour and a half ago.

"AM. This one is really weird. First of all, eight o'clock in the morning to Friday morning. Northbound on Racine county especially on a big weekend. You have no idea how much traffic John can tell you how much traffic is rolling through that area right now, especially Friday, traffic, northbound and a holiday weekend. There's so much traffic that comes into a little, I heading up for door county northern Wisconsin, and so on in addition to this the normal morning, driving traffic, plus everything slowed down, because of the narrow lanes, the construction zone, the loss of the ladies and so odd. So when you hear what the story that you're going to hear here, this is in extremely dense traffic normally eight AM on a Friday boarding. The receiving county sheriff's department responded to a call on the exit ramp northbound at highway g. Highway g is in the northern one third of Racine county. You come north. There's highway twenty which is the main drag than the next one is K the one after that is g and then I think seven mile road is the last time before I hit the Milwaukee county line as you're coming to the north. So Jay, they got a call from nine one one. It was the driver himself calling the Racine county sheriff's deputies. He said he was driving a semi truck. And he was hearing voices coming to the wall of his truck. Semi driver calls.

"Heavy delays in Racine county northbound ninety four through the construction zone where you down to two lanes to begin with. Well, the right lane is blocked just north of highway eleven watch for the heavy backups now. It is truly is bad enough down to the to the one. I I I drive through that way. Too often. I I bet you're backed up well into Kenosha Coney, everyone forty two this is at the latest at where highway eleven highway that's southern Racine county, and it's already backed up to one forty two which is right about where the construction zone starts and you go from the four lanes down to the two. Anyway, by the way, there is a trick. I'm guessing everybody probably has already doing it. But you care the last chance to get off to get to the frontage road is one forty two you. If you're coming northbound. And I think you said this is northbound right, correct? Yeah. The you can't get off of the frontage road at one forty two. And the only reason I know that as I was coming home Saturday and everything was stopped in front of me. And I just decided is I'm to try the frontage road in the past. It's been hard to get to them because the construction is closed off most of the exits you can't even get over to the front of road. Anyway, I got off of the frontage road at one forty two and what all the way up to twenty to pick it up, John? There might have been two cars, and that whole thing in the whole time. I looked to the left and the freeway nothing was moving. It was just tail lights frozen in time. I hardly anybody knows you can get over there. I think and if you don't do it at one forty two you're stuck because the next three exits are all closed you.
