"Dirty nearly unwatchable or tiny. Wasn't i would've turned it off. And i'm with you. The split screens done poorly and should have had a camera behind home plate Why don't implement a launch monitor. Similar that they have in the pga tour. Yeah i i think that would be fun to but they were trying to speed up the process and i think in the process they kind of they took away from what these home runs. I mean these are supposed to be majestic home runs. And you just assume that you know when i would watch somebody swing. I didn't know where it was landing. And i would just go okay. I guess that's homerun and chris berman whether you liked him or not. You know. Chris still was definitive. Like you knew right away. You know he'd he would yell out. Gone a inlet. Carl ravitch's different than chris berman raby. There's more understated and how he was going to call it last night but given the split screen that we didn't see where they landed. I would have liked a little bit more of an emphasis on that. You're gonna i don't even wear it landed.

I follow so also kinda start. You bet software app that everybody needs to have on their chrome as an extension as crystal knows c. r. y. s. T. a. l. k. w. ws s. Crystal knows it's a preparation tool for any conversation. You have with someone. It essentially looks at their lincoln profile. Organizes there that information at finds into a disc profile which is a really easy to understand personality profile better than that though. It teaches you how to talk to them.

There's no need advertiser huge talked about talked about four and it's good good My first one is rev dot com read on com. Rav a dictation service Let's imagine you leave a meeting and you want to dictate A follow up email. You will describe your phone. Open up the revs. Aft- dictated now. You can do the same thing with siri but ravitch's really reliable Person on the. There's a human being you're actually dictates. Transcribes it if it's longer form it's probably better like if you wanted to Dictate an article or you think. There's a really good idea for an article you can dictate. Let them do it. And then come back and modify edited. But i think it's a great time saver it's about a buck and a quarter a minute so it's pretty reasonable. Chances are you're not going to have really long things you're going to be doing in there. But dot com is one of my favorite tools. Love it my next one. That i doubt a lot.

They're called shorts and they're less than a minute and but they have to be vertical. So you can do a short for youtube and also repurpose it on instagram. Or or one of the other verticals sites. But you need. You need a tripod. if you're going to do any kind of stuff like that. I think the days of holding it for certain things but if you're going to produce something that you want hundreds of thousands of people to see i think you need some kind of stable base for your found Tripods are easy amazing. How many how few people have them. Twenty dollar version is not a floor. Length just sits on your desk and it's really makes a real easy to record.

He joined to discuss how his career parallels. The changing attitudes towards horseshoe crabs as well as the future of endotoxin, testing and recombinant technology. Welcome foster. Thank you join the conversation. So, let's begin with you. Can you tell me about your early experiences fishing for her? She grabs sure it was funny, you said. My. Most of my career actually I kid people because it's only job. I've ever had Your career then. I don't even I don't even have a resume so. The way I got involved with this was my. My father was an investor in a small company called in safe back in the mid eighties when I was an undergraduate student at Wofford College. And I heard him talking about it. I was studying organic chemistry, and he had partnered with the person who had originally used the test for pharmaceutical application. His name was Dr Cooper Dr James Cooper. He used it at John, Hopkins. University, he was a a radio nuclear pharmacist who is making nuclear medicines and the test at the time for bacteria. Linda toxins was called a rabbit powergen test. You took a New Zealand. Zealand White Rabbit and you deluded your product that you were testing for contamination and sailing, and he's ten meals into the ear of the rabbit. You Monitor the ravitch temperature for three hours, if the favor spike more than three degrees that was considered a failed test, and that rejected the product, but you know these new nuclear medicines. Had you know half lives of their nucleotides pads of of only twenty minutes so the? The test was was ineffective for this. These rabbit tests just sounds so inefficient. How did we get from there to using what we use today? Yeah, so be. It was really I. Forget the time it was wasn't really about replacing. The rabbit test is about five minutes Dr Cooper needed for these nuclear medicines, and and and when he did it, and he made these first crew preps, and they were, and he published that. That in nineteen, seventy two. He was actually he was actually on a grant from NIH so it wasn't something that was patentable. it was public knowledge at the time public information because it was a h grant that funded the research when he published that in nineteen seventy two I. Don't think he really thought anything of it and as the FDA solve the the value of this test replacing the the rather. Test. They also realize it would be the first time that a an animal model, but whatever be replaced with a regulated in vitro tests, so they decided to reunite the test itself, and what's interesting is even today where the only quality control tests that's actually regulated by FDA and we have the same license. Our licenses eleven ninety seven. We have the same licenses of. Of biologics manufacturer vaccine manufactured right, and we're inspected by the twice a year. All our products has to be submitted and approved by FDA. So we're extremely regulated in the space, which is also important when you think about new technologies, and how will a new technology be developed when we're so highly regulated and controlled and the amount of testing? That was necessary to just. Show equivalency to the rabbit, but long story short as the evolution into safe. When I ended up in graduate school, I ended up going to a into safe working for Dr Cooper. We were very small. I was just four of us in the lab. And you know obviously one of the main things we needed. Was Horseshoe crabs. Charleston was known for having horseshoe crabs, but two things about Charleston one is the population or or South, Carolina population is very strong in addition to the the the largest physical more shoe crab. There is the. Female one time that from tail, the whole link. The female was basically a meter. Long thing so very long right? YEP, so so they're big, so you don't have to handle nearly as many to get the quantity of blood we needed, but back in those days the crabs were were a nuisance. They were considered pass. they tore the fishermen's nets ups, especially the fishermen, and when they were bottom, dragging which was warhorse, pass laced for ill and cough. That was a byproduct that they just didn't want to deal with many times. They would just throw them up on the bank. Let and die compost them. Grind them as fertilizer the only other commercial applications for them at the time was to be used as bait, but again thinking about just the pure amount of work, and it just wasn't worth the fisherman's time to do it so again, not very well like creature that. So going back. You said you've. been working in the industry, your entire life and that is very unique, so can you? Tell me about working for for your dad and doing the early fishing long story short so when I when I left Graduate School I was given opportunity the company wasn't doing really well at the time, although the tested then mandated by the FDA to replace the rabbit, it was still a difficult competitive situation so again for us. It was tough. That's why they wanted me to come. I was one of the first ones to get you know three or four o'clock in the morning and go gathered the horseshoe crabs. From April fifteen to end of June. We bleed only when they coming up at high tides, and mainly they come up at high types after dark. Full Moon and a hot crabs. You're going to be there, okay. The southlands in thousands in early days we couldn't handle all the crabs that were coming up, so it'd be kind of surreal I can imagine a beach full of crabs. It is and we you know. We had very selective fishermen that we work with because again. They a lot of them just didn't see the value of them. It took us a long time to get the get the attention of the commercial industry. Get them to realize the value of the crab. Eventually we did I would actually drive to the docks during shrimping season If they caught him as byproducts I would just leave our car business card and say hey, call us if you catch any byproduct I'll come, pick them

"In in California for example teachers have to get. Their undergraduate degree in a subject, and then they can get a master's in education. I believe that it's important for every teacher to have a bachelor's degree in a disciplined, and whether it's English or history or science or mathematics but then think it's important for them to be certified teachers I? Don't think that amateurs teachers are good teachers I. Don't think the teach for America is a good model for teaching, because it's only five weeks of preparation and there, it's being used as a stepping stone to some other real decision. By issues that. Classroom management a huge aspect teaching. That non teachers are Bolivia's to have no idea how hard it is to keep. Ten, let alone twenty or twenty-five adolescence say it in their chairs paying attention. Of course, that's one of the reasons that the charter school boubons spends a lot of time on that. which I think bothers a lot of people. I understand that it can be somewhat controlling but. I think most education degrees that masters you're. You're talking about not really help people. They don't teach that stuff. South part of the education you get theories about how people learn how to manage an disruptive unruly classroom, or am I wrong? I think that's not true I think I would rather see people who have an education. Certification than people who don't because I think that it's important to know something about the failure. Going into I would not like to see people going into medicine. Who had no medical training? There is pedagogical training. It's important I wish the science of education were half as good as the science of medicine, both of which struggle you know, the the fads that were popular in Educational, Theory and pedagogy twenty years ago have been left behind. We've new ones. I don't think we're making progress they're. Written a lot about the DADS I happen. I happen to think that school choice is not only fed, but the school choice. I'm old enough to remember when the term school choice with stigmatized because it, it really was born with the southern segregation movement and the Charter. People hate to hear, but it's true. The term school choice was the favourite. Gun of the southern governors in the seventh southern senators, because it was their way of maintaining segregation, and there have been many studies coming from the Ucla Center on Civil Rights, and from other civil rights groups The any kind of choice, intensifies segregation, racial segregation, social segregation, religious segregation, and that's true internationally, not just here. I'll just close with the question response to that. You can let you respond and have the last word. I. Don't really care about the phrase The people that I know include myself again in this who who are in favor of school choice. Are deeply disturbed by the lack of. Opportunity available to the poorest children, America many of whom tragically are black. Black parents are the biggest proponents of charter schools. They are the biggest proponents of choice. It's true. They are aided by billionaires, but at least somebody cares about him. I don't think it's correct to suggest or imply that people who want choice for parents and children are somehow racist I. Just don't think it's true. While I, I haven't said there. Anyone who supports choice is racist. Although the school choice movement did begin a amongst the southern segregationists, but I think it's important to spawn that in the only massive vote on charter schools took place in Massachusetts in twenty sixteen at it was on one side where the teachers and parents at the local school committees civil rights groups, and they were against expanding charters on the other side were the waltons Michael Bloomberg hedge. Fund managers a lot of incredibly wealthy people who said we're here to provide more charter schools and more choices, and that measure went down and every single minority community black and. And Hispanic parents voted against it. The only place that won a majority were in wealthy white communities that never expected to see a charter school in their own community, but we thought it should work for someone else so to say that black and Hispanic parents are the main drivers of this moving ignores the fact that the overwhelming majority of black and Hispanic children are in public schools. They are not on waiting. Lists talk about waiting lists is is ridiculous because no one has ever audited them and the few instances where they were for example in Boston they were audited by the local public radio station and they found duplications trip. Arche, then accepted who are still on a waiting list. Waiting lists were in fact, vastly inflated, so don't believe that you don't think that the charter schools of of New York City, success, Academy Charter schools of New Orleans have waiting lists that people. That lottery is irrelevant. It's just it's just a PR move. It. There I live in a neighborhood with a success academy school. They are constantly advertising for students. It's a marketing ploy. I'd that there are waiting lists in New Orleans except to get into the very best schools, because half the schools are failing schools half the charters New Orleans failing schools, so of course kids WANNA get out of the failing schools and get into the successful schools, but that's only you know it's a half-and-half deal and New York is I, said success. Academy is constantly trying to. To pump up their applications, so they can have a lottery but I think that in most of the charters. They don't have lotteries at all. Because there is not that overwhelming demand, there are not huge lists waiting to get into charters, only six percents and Detroit. They have lots of charters that closed because there was no demand Washington state where Bill Gates thought to install charters, several of his charters already closed because of because of a lack of demand so I think they should really stop. Playing this card of there's this huge demand hundreds of thousands of cancer are on the waiting list is simply not true. Eighty percent of of the charter schools in Los Angeles have vacancies at least when they were open, eighty percent or more than eighty percent had bacon cheese, so yeah, a few successful schools have waiting lists most or not successful schools. I guess today has been Diane Ravitch Diane. Thanks for being part of a contract. It's been a.

"School system, which of course would not be? One size fits all I know that from earlier conversation. What do you think principles could do to do a better job? I agree with you that in the in the charter school system. There is an over emphasis for lots of reasons. on on test scores. You think that's a mistake. I do up to a point but what? WHAT SHOULD BE DIFFERENT What's what could be done besides the social policy things that you'd like to change in the? In the lives of these children outside of school Do you think America's schools well run, and if not what might be done, that would be different. In my case I think I'd like principals to have the right. This is what I like about charter schools. Let me tell you the two things I like about him. One is parents who don't have to go there. If they live the neighbor, then go somewhere else, and the second is that the principal can get rid of an honor. can get rid of bad teachers in honor. Good ones That's not as true. It appears to me in the public school system. Do you think that's irrelevant? Or do you think it's just not? It's relatively small and its impact. I think it's relatively small and its impact, because first of all I'm married to a former school principal, who had no problem getting rid of bad teachers? and. People don't get teachers get tenure for three to four years, and during that time they get observed repeatedly by their principal, and the principal has the right at anytime to say at. You're not cut out to be a teacher as I suggest you'd find another job and you're out finished. If teachers get tenured. They have a right to a hearing. I think that's reasonable. Why should everyone have a right to know who's accusing them whether the accusation is just? If they don't get a speedy hearing. Then shame on the administrators but I've also met principals. WHO said you know? I do my best to train my teachers to make sure that they're they're. Did allie higher well prepared teachers, and then to support them once in there in the classroom, so what we have right now nationally is a huge shortage of teachers whether that'll be true after the pandemic. Who knows because? Teaching may become attractive again because there's going to be massive unemployment in this country, but they're. The best schools are the ones that recruit their teachers carefully make sure that they're well prepared to teach. Support them in the classroom. Make sure that they have the what they need in terms of supplies and don't have to pay for it out of their own pocket. And then do their best to retain them. That's what it. Does and that's what good teachers do when they end. They give them the freedom to teach I. Think Right now. One of the huge problems we have is. We have a really stupid federal law. with no child left behind was continued by Obama's race to the top are remains in the law. Every student succeeds act, and that's the infiltration and mandating. Testing and we're the only advanced country in the world chest, every child every year waste billions of dollars on, but that's introducing a different subject. Now. Let's talk about that actually I. I do think. Teaching to the test is a problem although again when I read Sarah Cars Book about. What happens in the actual classroom or Robert Sunday CEOS where they were embedded in schools for year. There's a lot of education on there. It's not just teaching people how to take tests or how to memorize. Spit back answers that obviously you can design it a test. That's better than some Although inevitably, there is some. Imperfection there's no task contest. What we really deeply care about which is the ability to? Communicate. So that I agree with it. That's a problem Do you think that outside of the test score? Obsession America has in both public and charter schools that you're talking about that the rest of it. It would be okay. Well I. Spent many years. Doing what I do, which is to say that for almost fifty years I've been a historian of education. I spent seven years on the national testing board I got not standardized testing. Pretty intensively I was disappointed to discover that the the outcomes seldom changed. The richest kids had the highest scores in the poorest kids have the lowest scores and you can say charter schools change that but we'll. We've already had that discussion, so I won't go into that What I've learned about tests and I would read the questions before they were given on a national test. Kids across the country is often found that the questions were really bad questions they were had ambiguities. were confusing to students. They were passed through multiple review committees than they were still confusing questions, and then even worse for the answers I could look at the answers and say wait a minute there to right answers here. And I would argue with other people sitting on the same review committee with all say. They're to right answers. Which one's the right answer we don't know. And yet the kid is supposed to figure out what the test maker had in mind. What I've learned by. Reading tests quite expensive. And reviewing the. Is the test or not really very good measures of anything. Related to pick the right answer of won the tests maker had mine now? Let's look at the way it works. The kids take usually this year. They're not taking the test because of the pandemic, but typically the kids take the test and March the results come in August or September. The kids no longer have the same teacher, and then the results tell you nothing about the individual child. They simply say this child scored A. A one, a two or three or four. This child is at the thirty five percent of the sixty five percent. This is not what you call diagnostic information. This is what you call useless information. It's like you're going to the doctor having a tremendous pain in your stomach and you say Dr. what should I do and the doctor says I'm going to give you a test and I'll get back to you in four months. Okay, you may be dead by then, but then he comes back to you. Any says we'll even not even when he gets back to you in four months. You may not have the pain anymore, but he says you. You know you're in the top twenty percent for people who have this particular pain, but that's all I can tell you. That's what the test starts today. They are utterly useless. They have no diagnostic value, so we're spending billions of dollars testing every child every year and getting nothing from it, other than rankings and ratings which stigmatize schools and say the school should be closed because it has, we should be looking at those schools and saying you know there there. There's an overload of kids here with disabilities. We need more help to them. There's an overload of kids who don't speak English. We need more help to them. There are things we could be doing the more useful than simply giving standardized says, but I think the reason that the tests movement became so popular among both Republicans Democrat Democrat politicians and.

"By the effort that the teachers in those schools put forward. To help students who are not cherry-picked who are struggling who desperately have trump have desperate challenges in adapting to academic life, and those teachers work eighty ninety hours a week. They're not like the Cherry. The kids who are self motivated, necessarily go home to an easy environment. Parents can help them. Those kids are struggling and there. You can call them cherry-picked, but those teachers. Break break their hearts to to to to help those kids succeed, and it's not easy, and you know that you know that I, mean I'm not you know how hard that is? It's it's hard work. You know I I. Never put down. Anybody's doing the teachers I think. Teachers are wonderful. The problem charters have is that they have tremendous turnover of teachers success academy. which you mentioned has a fifty percent turnout rate every single year. They are constantly advertising for new teachers. They train their teachers. Teachers and within two years they have to almost have a complete turnover ultra as a high turnover rate. You can't work people sixty and seventy and eighty hours a week and expected. This is going to be their profession. I have enormous respect for the teaching profession and I think it's the teachers are underpaid. I think it's you look at what's happening right now. In the midst of this pandemic in teachers are really knocking. Themselves selves out to find ways to stay in contact with their kids. Kids I have grandchildren who are in public school there on Zoom three times a day in her for their conferences in their meetings, their teachers are doing whatever I mean there. There's a phenomenon around the country right now, called teacher parades, and the teachers lineup their cars, one and a car, and they go through the neighborhood, waving to their children, and the children stand on the porch, and they're all blowing each other kisses in this is a an incredibly important and valuable profession and the so-called. so-called reformers them disrupters had done attacking teachers to the past and I was there at the hoover, institution hearing whether it's Rick. Hanya Shekar are Mo- complaining about unions complaining about teachers, themselves is though with an easy job. It is not an easy job, and I would either. One of them are any of them to get into a classroom with thirty kids for a day and survive I. Don't i. don't think Terry. I don't think terrier error would underestimate. The challenges are being a a schoolteacher. I only I. Only do indeed. There was this theory which are Hanish at after propound that you should fire the lowest performing teachers every year bottom five percent and the way he defined the bottom five percent where those who didn't get test score gains, and the problem with the theory was a that. It never works, and you're basically identifying the teachers who are who are working with the lowest performing kids, because they don't see the big gains so. Wherever. This has been tried out this judging teachers by the test scores of their students. You find out that the best teachers in the schools, and so the suburban teachers see the tests for gains the teachers Rossi kids see test score gains the teachers who have who are teaching the kids with disabilities. All look like bad teachers. And, there's no one to take their place. But the teachers in new, Orleans who doubled the performance of their kids before Katrina, and after Katrina when they went from a public school system to an all charter school system. You GotTa give him some credit, don't you? CanNot make a valid comparison from before Katrina when you had A. Twenty five percent more kids, so you disappear at twenty five percent of your kids from the poorest families, and then you compare it to the kid who came who came back after the storm. Back Real, pretty poor and They're not all the white kids who remained are in the highest performing schools. They're out in the schools that are rated Europe what they've done in new, Orleans is if a school consistently fails. They close it. They opened again and then five years later. They find that that's that's fulfills to do you really believe. Do you really believe that the doubling of test score of? New Orleans because only the the best kids came back in the bottom tales didn't come back now. I don't first of all the test scores. When you say that it's doubling proficiency in. It's one of the lowest performing. District send the you can double. Proficiency of proficiency is very low, and you still have a low performing district new. Orleans is a low performing district in a very low performing state, so let's not overstate what this doubling of proficiency, but if you had your way, those charter schools weren't allowed to be there. They'd still be at half of what they were before. Doesn't know because the other thing that happened in New Orleans which Doesn't get mentioned. Is there was a significant increase in funding because of Katrina and the significant increase came first from the federal government, and secondly from the philanthropist, so if you were to increase funding significantly, would you see the same increase? Doubt it. We've tried that. Lots of places haven't seen that significant increase, but it's possible I would just mention the listeners that recant Shak. Who Danny you just mentioned is been on. ECON talk. A number of times You can hear his views on teachers I I. Do not agree that we should fire the bottom five percent every year. I don't know if Rickwood state at that way either but. Well I WANNA. I WANNA get back to the public schools for a SEC and waiting superman, so one of the parts of that of that film that was disturbing was how the worst teachers not because of test scores just because they don't do a good job. Get. Shuffled around within. The district can't be fired. Do you think that affects the quality of Public School System the willingness of unions to defend. Horrible teachers keep them employed well. I think that that that was overstated. in New York City which has a union and the unions purposes to defend teachers when teachers are unjustly accused. They have a right to a hearing. This is not lifetime tenured sought to kind of lifetime. tenured professors have a university. Teachers have a right to a hearing and that's all they have a right to. and. So a principle of people in public school can fire a lousy teacher. If they're just a lousy teacher, they sure can don't get tenure on the first day that their work and in most districts say at least California probably is, that has the shortest period before teachers are tenured, but in districts it takes three to four years before you get tenure, and if too many, if bad teachers are getting tenured than we have an administrator problem. So starting to that actually why we try that as we can find out more agreement, Diane..

"That portrays as did Sarah cars book as does Robert Pundits us, book as does. I think anyone who is part of this movement. The incredible. Urgency. The parents have to get their kids out of failing public school system. How do you how do you? Do They not count. They are desperate. Their kids are having horrible times in their public schools, some of which are the result of other factors for sure, but they are desperate desperate the number of people who apply for those slots in the lotteries. They are. Thirsty for their children's education. How can you doesn't that count? First of all. I would say that parents should do whatever they WANNA do. Let's choices up to them is whether they want to send their children to a religious school. They want to choose a charter. That's their choice. It's not me to tell them that they shouldn't as a policymaker however I, think policymakers whether Secretary of education or the State Superintendent have an obligation to strengthen and improve the public school system which. which enrolls anywhere from eighty to ninety percent of the children her I I was talking with some in Georgia to a reporter the other day about what's happening there. And she said the only thing they talk about in the legislatures, vouchers and I said what percent of the children in Georgia in Public School? She said ninety two percents. What are they doing to improve the education for the ninety two percent nothing nothing. been trying that for sixty years for sixty years for three generations, we have failed the poorest children in America through the school system. It charters are not an answer. If that were the case, Detroit would be. New Orleans would be the best system in the country. It's not half the schools are failing schools. For the research you talk about the children are desperately poor. They live in very poor families in very poor neighborhoods to tragedy. Charters were supposed to fix a poverty. That's what the reformers were saying. Well, they don't fix poverty and having kicker in schools that are rated D. R. F Detroit in those schools will. Those schools can struggled to attract parents, but the public schools that deserve a deer enough. They can keep getting them. Doesn't that bother you now that what bothers me? Is that public school teachers are not paid enough. It bothers me the classes and public schools with very poor kids have kids who are homeless I think we should do something about the homeless I think we should do something about not having medical care I think we should do something about the fact that we have more poverty than any other industrialized country in the world, and we'll have even more property after this pandemic is overweight. We have right now about. About twenty percent of our kids living in poverty, that's not the case in any Scandinavian. Nation to which we compare ourselves to where the the poverty rate is somewhere around five percent, and sometimes less. So I think we have very serious social issues. Our Society is failing. Our schools are reflection of our society I think the schools and I've been in a lot of title. One schools and schools that enroll were kids. The teachers are doing an incredible job at all. They get from. The reformers is a tax. Judging by the test scores of students which will inevitably be lower than those of kids who live in leafy suburbs the waiting for Superman I thought was the dishonest foam and that's. Why didn't the Academy Award because there was an article published thing that the state? Some of the scenes were staged. An I checked I. Did I reviewed it for the New York? Review of books and I found not only was applauded use of data. And not only were some of the scenes stage. It was just plain wrong on. Five school, one of the five schools was recommended. was a boarding school across thirty five thousand dollars per student. Do you think this country is prepared to play thirty five thousand dollars per student for kids to live in a boarding school? We don't even know if any of those charter schools are still open. It's another aspect of charters that you haven't mentioned. which is some many charters close? Almost. As soon as they open a right now and Florida, and some other states, they're closing. For every school that charter school that opens another one is closing, so you may find your kid in charter school. First of all doesn't want you because you. Won't get a high score at your trauma de rejected because of having special needs, your chummy rejected because a heated doesn't pass whatever the entry requirements or the school may close in January and you're all out on the street. So this is a risk you take i. think that what we have to do, and I know you don't agree with me. Worry mode doesn't agree with me. Go Ahead I think we have to to make our public school system. The best in the world and the only way we're going to do that is to address the underlying social problems in the society where we have kids who are homeless kids who never see a doctor and kids who who were not sure that they're gonna get Emil anywhere except in school. Let me, add one thing about the Cherry picking I. Think's important. I agree with you that. Certainly. They like to get a bright kids if they can and they like to get especially motivated parents who are willing to devote time to the children.

"That has issues dealing with crime that has issues dealing with. Family problems driven by poverty. We agree on that the question is. What are we gonNA do for those kids today, not tomorrow, not not I. Don't think what we should be doing for. Those kids is reducing their class size. Many of the kids who are in these schools that are doing very poorly are overwhelmed with poverty and special education and kids who don't speak English. They need some more. Classes they also need. Stripped of the arts. They've been stripped of everything that kids might WanNa. Come to school for because they've been turned into just test test test and our. We should talk about the test because by the nature of the tests. At the kids who come from poverty, you're GONNA always be. Classified in the bottom half, because chester, a great predictors of family income and most kids don't make it out of bottom half and I contend I think that there's lots of evidence on my side to show it. the charter schools have not succeeded in closing the achievement gap. They've Cherry. Pick their students. As possible I I. Raise the same point with dairy mall I agree that that's an issue especially in with. Robert Bundy also, and he gets an issue of. Any of these comparisons that that it's very hard to control for the factors. Of Selection. Having said that I. do think it's important as I said before. To remember that these schools work that we're talking about work with very very poor students. Now it could be that they just get the best ones They don't work four students there. That's true. Charter schools in California. one thinks. If it's Los Gatos. Los Altos I'm not being a Californian. I get them confused. It's for rich kids and they've. They have created a charter school for rich kids where the parents each put up five thousand dollars, and it's a heck of a bargain for them. Because if they sent him to a private school, they would never get it for five thousand. And they're very exclusive bottom line that rich people kids get a good education I think of as you do I think every American. Child, every child in the world serves a great education I. Think the public schools. I'm a product with public schools by the way as I know you proudly are as well I am a product of the Houston public. Yeah. I went. went to I went to Lexington. Most of my public schooling was in Lexington Massachusetts at excellent school system on paper, but it also of course suffers from the same selection problem. Those kids Mike. My peers would have done well going to a number of not so great schools I would not call the state of public education in America first rate for anybody. It's not first rate and shorter. Don't make it better. But what? would argue the charters make it worse because they divert resources from underfunded public schools, and you may say that they're not underfunded. I've seen them. I've seen the the condition. lack of investment in capital planning, and the fact that when you take away your best students, even if they're all black and four, and you take away the best of them The public schools are left with the most expensive hardest educates students in less money to do it. Let's talk about the documentary waiting for Superman you mentioned in your in in your book. I encourage people to see it. It's I found it a powerful. You didn't like it. You said The market disruption reached a large national audience in two thousand, ten with the release of the documentary, waiting for Superman. Which falsely asserted that? America's public schools had failed extolled the virtues privately managed charter schools and ridiculed public schools in their teachers. That the crater that documentaries David Guggenheim You know one would call him a right winger. he. Allegedly made that documentary because he felt guilty, driving past mediocre public schools to take his kid to private school and realized it didn't seem quite right that he had the freedom to choose for his child. What he thought was the best education for poor people were stock. In the neighborhoods that their housing was in and I think that's another appalling aspect of America's public schools is that. We. Give people access to good public schools via the price of their house. She makes no sense to me whatsoever as a as a as a design on purpose if your goal is to educate students while and give people an opportunity to to prosper and flourish. But. What's wrong with that? Why shouldn't what's wrong with that? Is I roll. That was sheer propaganda. In twenty ten, when that domeless released, there was absolutely zero evidence that charter schools would save any kid. But it helped. propagandize the movement There were a lot of factually inaccurate things about used I was seven years on the board of the national, the National Testing Board. It's called national assessment governing. Board they use the national scores in a way. That was either ignorant are dishonest. And they use the this level proficiency, which is reached by only about a third of kids, and they considered that anyone who didn't reach petition was failing, which is ridiculous and the Navy Board Nag which certainly doesn't do it that way the film was produced by one of the most right wing evangelical. anti-gay billionaires on the country many Philip Anschutz and so. I don't know what they were. I know what fellow on chances of motives were he? He's an evangelical and He loves charters. He loves vouchers on, and he wants like the coke.

There has been for many many years long before you and I were in public school, a determined right wing effort to de Fund Public Education and say that everyone was on their own The charter schools and I came to see this after having been a charter school proponent for many years and turning against them, they are a step towards vouchers and people who advocate the most avidly like betsy. Devos see them as a step towards vouchers and. The ultimate goal and you know as you may or may not know enough forget I mentioned in the book Desi. Devos sponsored of a voucher referendum in Michigan, the year. Two thousand because that's what she really wants. She wants kids to mainly go to religious schools and it went down with her whelming. It's interesting that whenever charters are vouchers or put to a vote. They're voted down and.

"It's certainly true that charter schools try to get. Motivated students and motivated parents, but of course many of them. Even, the most successful ones which are sometimes the most successful ones in the states that there in. Are Serving extremely poor. Children. From very poor families. And those children are having success in academic settings, other poor children in the state or city don't get from their public schools. What does your does that count? I. Don't actually think that's true I. Think what's happening is the selection process and I was just communicating yesterday with with one of the leading authorities in the country, one of the leading researchers David Berliner at state, and he sent me list of the charters in the saver Zona and the selection process as they required. Some of them require the parents to write. Some of them require certain grades that their a number of requirements that charters use skim the students they want to include those they try. They try, but in New Orleans say may that public schools are spending more and not getting better results I would say that there's a couple of things to look at one. Is that when we were? Back in the day when everything was idyllic, we did not include kids with special education. The charters don't want the kids with Special Education and I've been in public schools were there were sixteen year old kids in diapers? I've been in public schools where the teachers literally had to carry the children because the children couldn't. They were in a wheelchair. They couldn't go to the. The bathroom. The teachers were taking them into the toilet. Those kids are not in charter schools. Those kids are very expensive to educate and the federal government. When it mandated special education back in the seventies promise that the federal government would pay forty percent of the cost, and it is never done. It says while very very expensive burden on public education that it must beer. Well I guess I'm less I think that explains the magnitude of expenditure, but I guess the bigger problem I have which you don't. Mention, the book and I love your reaction as You make your very critical of the charter school proponents for their support of charters and their claims that public schools are failing. There are numerous public schools where children can't read and write and get moved forward without. Help. They, they graduate and they are poorly poorly educated. Do. You think that is not the case. Now I think that is not the case I think the cases that America has a tremendous skewing of income that we concentrate the poorest neediest kids in some schools which have very low test scores, and then say their teachers are to blame, and if only there were charter schools, and then the chargers come along and don't take those kids anyway. They push out the kids who have special needs. They push out. They don't want the kids who the. The lowest foreign kids, so those kids get pushed up the charter schools are not taking the low scoring. Kids are taking and Robertson disco says in his book they're choosing the families they want, and the ones that are the most motivated and those are not the kids who were the neediest kids, so they're not. They're not the neediest, but there are plenty needy, and right now in many American cities, those parents and those children have no opportunity. To achieve any kind of academic success, they have a very low chance of going to college. They have a very low chance of graduating from college, and they have a very low chance of being financially successful. Weight, isn't it? Let me just giving example of two cities that have a wide open for charters, and and one of them's wide open for vouchers Milwaukee has a charter a full blown charter sector. Of It has a public sector that's been stripped of kids in resources, an has a full blown sector. Old Three sectors do terribly no-one no-one has been saved. And the. Black kids in Milwaukee are performing on par with their peers in Mississippi in the charter schools as well as the vouchers schools the other example. I would off. You is Detroit Charter schools enroll half the kids and Detroit is today still the lowest performing city in the country so have to have some examples of success and not just give me the theory that I heard thirty years ago about the success academy in new. New York, you think they've cherry picked all seventeenth off forty one thousand students absolutely, and that those forty one thousand students in the public school systems of the poorest parts of New York City were thriving before doing as well as they're doing under the Success Academy Day or they cherry picking the best students their first, their first graduating class, began with seventy eight children in kindergarten by the Tampa graduated there only sixteen. Yeah. That's true. You think that's not a heart rate of patrician that is that was their first class. Though you gotta give them a little bit of a chance to get up to speed after fourth grade, they do not accept any new students now they kick out kids who in the dip or six foot? Where do you think they go? They go to another charter school I go back to the public schools. Success Academy is a very keen example school at. Practices, careful selection and high attrition, and you get great results with that. They're over. Over eighty thousand poor black kids in New York City who get scores as high as the kids and the success academy, so they have a lot of kids choose from who are poor and who are black, and who are doing very loan public schools. Let's go. That's a good comparison I'd like to see that that's that's definitely relevant. And the prudence in New Orleans when they switched to alternative school system. The achievements that Terry Moe champion here. I know you don't agree with his with his perspective, but I was on the New Orleans. School website They have big increases in test scores by the agree with you. The test scores are not everything we're. We have a chance to talk about that, but they have big increases in graduation rates from from high school. They have big increases in kids. Going to college are those luxury did would they have happened anyway to the kids if they had stayed in public schools well I think the first thing to know about New Orleans is about twenty five percent of the kids disappeared after the storm a temporary, those twenty five percent were not the wealthy kids. Kids those were the poor as kids who fled to Houston and other places, and never came back, so it went from being a school system that had sixty thousand plus forty, forty, eight, thousand, and the choice system ranked by the state of Louisiana shows a half. The schools are failing schools, so whether the test scores went up or not they're they're. They're still very low. In Louisiana. Scores are dominated by New Orleans which is the largest city Louisiana is one of the lowest performing states in the country, so you're talking about a district the New Orleans. Now. Which is blabber state of Louisiana and Louisiana Louisiana's one of the lowest scoring states in the country. So is this a model for the rest of the country I don't think so? No, but it says that the for fourth and sixth grade students, the percentage of students scoring mastery, and above in math increase twenty one percentage points. That's not unimportant. But that's still way below the state average. Yeah there. They got some issues that we're you and I agree is that it is absurd to think that the greatest school in the world is going to transform the lives. Of every desperately poor kid who is in.

She was here April of twenty, ten talking about her book. The death and life of the Great American School System Her latest book, and the subject of today's conversation is slaying Goliath. I want to thank plan onyx for providing Dan with the Blackwood fifty two twenty headset. Diane Welcome back to Econ Talk. Well, thank you for inviting me. This episode is a continuation of recent episodes on the Charter School Movement conversations I had with Terry Mo- Robert Pond. And Sarah Car I encourage listeners to listen to those episodes as well as earlier ones, related education may be someone's yet come out Diane. You have a very different perspective from some of these previous guests you call the proponents of charter schools, disruptors, and those that oppose them the resistance What is your criticism of the disrupters to people who promote charter schools? Well the promise of charter schools and I was there at the beginning the beginning being the late one thousand nine hundred eighty S. and was a proponent of charter schools. I was in the. George H W Bush administration and we were very much in favor of the idea, which was a brand new idea back in the late nineteen eighties early nineteen ninety S, and I support charter schools during the time when I worked at the hoover. Institution and I was part of the correct task force along with Terry. Mo and Paul Peterson John Chapman Checker Finn Lots of others and A. Sometime into the two thousand, five began to become disillusioned, because I realized that charter schools were not realizing the promise, the promise being they would save for kids from failing public. And as time has gone by that I've become even more critical because there have been so many scandals associated with charter schools essentially the charter idea. was originally going to be a collaboration between public schools. And Experimental Schools Charter schools that were. Meant to be like RND centers for the public sector and they would have the freedom to try out new things and then bring them to the public school, so the public school could improve. What has happened over time, though is they have become competitors and they seek market share, and in some cases they seek to drive the public schools out of business I. Think the premier example that is New Orleans where there are no more public schools but they. The charter sector is such his failed to keep its promise of saving core. Kids from a failing public schools are those that are the most successful. Screened the S. Robert Fisk says they screened the parents in order. Get the best kids are. They don't want kids with disabilities. Are they? Exclude the kids who were troubling makers, they become selective schools, and that are not selective. Schools are very low performing schools. In some states, the charter schools are the worst performing schools in the state. I'm thinking particularly of Ohio and Nevada but there are other states where the charter schools are doing very poorly so it's broken. Promise so I called Charter. I don't think there is a charter movement as such I think what there is this just a lot of money provided by a long list of billionaires to promote the privatization of public education. Very critical those billionaires. Why! Why are you that critical of their? Is Their motivation you. You don't seem to respect what they're trying to accomplish or worse. You think what they're trying to accomplish is not honorable. Well I'm critical. The billionaires because I think they could be doing so much more productive things I think by now by the year twenty twenty. We've had thirty years of charter schools and we know that they don't accomplish what they're supposed to They don't. They haven't achieved close the achievement gap They select the kids they want us. Some of the charter schools have very very skewed enrollments like The highest performing charter school in the country are the basis charter schools. Schools in Arizona and they are composed primarily the hot, their highest point, schools, Arizona or white nation. They don't have very many. Latino kids don't have very many American kids and every few African. American kids in Arizona a they don't reflect. The population of did served by Arizona public schools, so I think what the billionaires should be doing is things that are actually needed they should I look at the evidence and say this investment, a literally hundreds of millions. Billions into the charter sector. His not produced results. We want many charter. Schools have opened and closed many of them. Take money to open and never open and there have been massive financial scandals associated with with the charter sector. The largest of them taking place, in California, if I were a billionaire I would be doing first of all as looking at the evidence and saying my investment in charter schools has not produced the results that I thought it would at what I will do. Instead is open health clinics in neighborhoods where kids don't have health care, I would open health clinics for at to provide prenatal services to provide family services, because the the biggest predictor test scores is family income, and unfortunately the charter school movement has at such as it is, and not again. I don't think it's a movement, but people who support Charter's say that. They can fix poverty by fixing schools and that hasn't happened. We have the greatest inequality that we've had many decades. Up to and including the current crisis, but poverty is hugely hugely important is the predictor of test scores that being the case I think that were a billionaire, first of all the lobbying to pay higher taxes, which I don't see any of them doing and fact, the Waltons who were the biggest supporters of charter schools are have had court cases around the country to try to lower their property taxes on their Walmart stores, but taxes are what support education and choice is not a substitute for an adequate funding for public schools. I WANNA come back tipped charter schools. and.

What kind of city we want to build as we come out of this crisis but it is not going to have a specific prescription for the source of money that the city needs in order to function. They may have to lay off workers. They may have to freeze salaries for a period of time..

"Download the baseball tonight podcast right there. He was talking about the Boston Red Sox. The Red Sox have gotten off to a very slow start this season. A lot of their star players. Also have gotten off to very slow starts, including Mookie Betts. So the conversation would call Ravitch on the baseball tonight podcast was about Mukhi beds. He's up for new contract. He's a young talented star major league baseball. The MVP Mookie Betts has an MVP under his belt already. You take a look at his stats this year. They're underwhelming. He's not playing as a up to par as you would think for the three-time all-star the three time gold, Glover Mookie Betts this year. So far he's batting here. The slash lines. For Mookie Betts right now to thirty one free. Thirty four thirty six he has four home runs. He has eight RBI. He has one stolen base. He struck out eleven sixteen times. He's walked eleven times. In the twenty one games. He's played this season for the Boston Red Sox. A lot of people in Boston are looking at this situation and saying should we move off of Mukhi bets? To collect talent to bring back to keep the championship window of the Boston Red Sox open longer. So so the concept would be you trade bets and then you get back young talent. And then you you preserve what you're you're. You're building here with this team that just wanted championship last year. So it would be like a proactive strike. You got it. So as you think about that it reminds you of someone else. Right. Who's a young star? Who's won a championship in this city who has yet to be extended with a new contract where all of his peers I've been getting new contractor. I Brian how your bias Kris Bryant. Okay. If we were doing the Murphy Fred game. We would both guests in the average would be a Chris buys. Yeah. So Kris Bryant has not played to what we thought the MVP level. He would be for the prolonged time of his career. He was injured last year and this year he's off to a very slow start. Yes. So are only Carlo or Ravitch or talking about Mookie Betts and how he could possibly be moved this season or in the offseason because the the Red Sox may not want to give him a three hundred million dollar deal. Three fifty deal like a may Machado, Bryce Harper. Other stars who have gotten those new contracts this off season. Here's BUSTER only, and he brings up some possible destinations for Mookie Betts. But when you talked about Mukhi, and he began to sort of muse in my head who would make the most sense. Of course, we know that it would never trade him to the ANC. He's we know the list is very short for teams that would actually have the prospects to get him. You know, kinda came to mind this Chicago Cubs because they they're window is getting closer. Finishing? You get the feeling there's a restlessness in that organization to turn over some of the physician player group there to build the sense of urgency. I don't know that's an intriguing idea. Did you hear that cub fans? I heard did you hear the let's listen once again, listen to the end of what BUSTER only is saying about your Chicago Cubs. But when you talked about movie, and he began to sort of music in my head who would make the most sense. Of course, we know that it would never trade him to the keys. We know the list is very short for teams that would actually have the prospects to get him. You know, kinda came to mind this Chicago Cubs because they they're window is getting closer to finishing. You get the feeling there's a restlessness in that organization to turn over some of the physician player group there to build a sense of urgency. I don't know that's an intriguing idea. Hold up turn over the position player group. I thought this was the young core that had title runs in their future. This was the young core. That Jen THEO were putting together to prolong the championship window the young court turning over the young core. The position player group whose BUSTER alluding to is that. A college Schwarzer is that a Anthony Rizzo is that a Kris Bryant, I think we both agree havi buys is the guy you keep long-term. No matter what. Who is it in that group? L more probably not like what's the value of Al Mora going forward? What's crazy is all these guys are up in twenty twenty two right? All these guys are are free agents in twenty twenty two. So you've got two more years of all these guys you're going to have to start. And that was part of the reason that you know, it's alluded to that. We can't, you know, be handing out this money. Now, we've got a handout this money later on this kind of stuff, whatever. Well, I if you're not going to hand out money to them. If you trade for Mookie Betts, are you going to pay Mookie Betts? So what are you gonna? But exactly if you're not willing to pay Kris Bryant, are you trading? Kris Bryant for Mookie Betts, that's but you're willing to give a contract you're going to who the Red Sox won. Because you have look you can cubs fans or look at the cupboard of young talent. The cubs have collected there. If you're the Red Sox, what do you want? Exactly if you're the Red Sox. Do you? Okay. Maybe you want because you're in American League team. Look at his numbers. You can only. That's my point what half the time. Do you wanna Anthony Rizzo? Not at that age. Right. And he looked at the numbers. He's is for the client. What do you want you want? Kris bryant. If you're not willing to pay Mookie Betts, are you willing to pay Chris bright just like the cubs? If you're not willing to kick pay Kris Bryant, I best. Of course. Cubs fans. Want Mookie Betts, he's Mukhi vets? But you have to it takes two people to trade. You can't just give me your not Thanos in theaters next weekend. You can't just go. You can't just go and take people you have to you have to come up with the trade. Well, that's interesting conversation Addison Russell straight up shut up. If you're a cub fan, do would you rather have Mukhi bets or Chris Brian going forward? I think Mukhi bets thirty one two three three two three seven seven six Chris black and dollar here on ESPN one thousand and the ESPN app. She had the right fielder. Mookie Betts, he's five nine one hundred eighty pounds. He can run. He's good on defense. He's won three Gold Gloves. He's a MVP. He wins. It last year. He's a three time all star. He's one of batting title. Or would you rather have Kris Bryant who we've seen rookie of the year? MVP some issues what the shoulder last season are the issue still lingering this season what's going on. He's being attacked in the zone with basketballs, and he can't keep up anymore. Why has he not adjusted? But then again, you look and Mukhi bets this season. It's not like he's playing to the caliber that we've seen over the course of the last three seasons. It's an interesting conversation. If you're a cubs fan and wise BUSTER only also saying that the window is closing listen once again, he's saying that there towards the end of their run. But when he talked about Mukhi, and he began to sort muse in my head who would make the most sense. Of course, we know that it would never trade him to the Ke's. We know the list is very short for teams that would actually have the prospects to get him. You know, kinda came to mind this Chicago Cubs because they they're window is getting closer to finishing. You get the feeling there's a restlessness in that organization to turn over some of the physician player group there to build a sense of urgency. I don't know that's an intriguing idea. I feel like when you hear. Buster only say that on the baseball tonight podcast that the idea if you if you're hearing it from the cubs side these rumors, right? These these rumblings that the idea would be to pair Mookie Betts with Harvey buys with Brian Wilson contrary. The young players who are are a part of this core. And that you can prolong what you're doing in this championship window. You would give up the younger players that maybe have not proven it. I don't know if it's ideal to give up a Kris Bryant, four Mookie Betts because aren't you? Just kind of spinning your wheels in place. Like treading water. Give them called the Red Sox. Boop. Boop. Boop. Boop. Call them up. Say I'll give you schwartman Addison Russell. But why would the Red Sox do that just offer it to see what do you mean? Maybe you catch them in a bad time. This is not what are you doing? What does that mean? He's gone over four. Call him up off the trade. See what happens? I mean. If you're a cub fan, and you hear bus only say that the cubs are are nearing the end of their championship run there. Yeah. What does that? What do you think about that? Like. Like, why are you just saying BUSTER only, you're crazy? They're not too. Are you saying you know, what? From what we've seen at the start of the season, the kind of looked like just an average ball club. I would think it would be naive for cubs fans at this point to say that the the window is still as open as it was after they won the World Series that you look at teams like the the the brewers with yelich and the way he's been on a tear to start the season. You look at other. You look at the way that your offense has been while it's been back for four games yesterday. Did nothing you look at you Darvish who you gave a hundred twenty million dollars to who's cake it onto the fifth inning. Whether the manager lets him or not, okay. You look at everything. That's combining everything that I mentioned that window closes a little bit and a little bit in a little bit. It's not completely closed. You still there's still a ton of talent on this baseball team. But as of right now the way the season has started yet, you look like you've probably should have done some stuff in the off season or you maybe need to make some moves here. And maybe part with some of these guys for for for young for. Other talents. Not this talent. And to be fair in two thousand fifteen twenty sixteen the pitching staff the average age was twenty nine this season. It's thirty one. So your staff has gotten older the club overall, the batting average the batting age average for the lineup was twenty six in two thousand fifteen and then twenty seven in two thousand sixteen it's now twenty eight so like everyone's gotten a little bit older. But we're not seeing the same results we saw in two thousand fifteen twenty sixteen. That's Adam doll. I'm Chris black right here on ESPN one thousand crisp black and Adam Abdullah on ESPN one thousand and the ESPN app..

"And there were penalties for for lack of competitiveness. I think we'd have a better product. And we'd also have more veteran players being employed early because those clubs would be mandated to win otherwise they would lose draft pick. So I think we've got some severe alterations to make the league better of that we need to address in the collective bargaining area. Today, we'll be talking about how players are getting paid. With all these contracts extensions winning streak for teams and owners continues. Jessica dosa will talk to us about Mike trots interest in the weather, which he saw firsthand Marley Rivera on how the world champions are looking to deal respected veteran and about each row. Let's get to it. It's the Rabbie train with Carl Ravitch. Call Ravitch Sosa baseball tonight play by play man, free SPN. He's all about baseball. Now, Carl right all it that your winter dally into basketball. That's the flirtation with the shot clocks and all those things is over moved onto full fledge baseball on every level. We get the little league stuff coming up later. But this weekend, I'll be an Athens Georgia for a huge SEC series between huger major league stars on good teams LSU in Georgia. They play each other Saturday and Sunday at one in noon eastern time on SEC network. So, yeah, we're we're we're toes legs arms body head deep into the baseball pool today. Let's start with this bleach or tweet from fish fear. Me Cody Weiji fish says with Paul Goldschmidt added in Saint Louis. And of course, he just agreed to this extension. I mentioned in the open who is the best first basement in the National League central Joey Votto, Anthony Rizzo or Goldie and with more exposure in Saint Louis. Goldie received more MVP votes. Carl what do you think? Well, I don't think there's any doubt about that. You know? And I think all three of those guys would be tremendous anchors on any team for all sorts of reasons. We're splitting hairs here where parson ones versus to siege in the NCAA tournament. I think at that point, it becomes sort of a personal preference on aspects of the player that that that differentiate them in your own mind, I happen to be a fan of rizzo's, and I think because of his ability to hit field, but I like that intangible quality of Rizzo that we saw during the World Series run. I think he's I think he's a born leader not suggesting the other two aren't but we've seen more of that from a guy like Rizzo. So again, I think I'd love him all of my team. But there is just a sort of a personal thing that ultimately to me is the decision maker. And I just like what Rizzo does to eighteen to clubhouse the personality, the outgoing stuff, and look we we may be more exposed to that with Goldie and Saint Louis heck I stood in a men's bathroom, cutting mustache sports commercial with Joey Votto for eight hours. Funny guy. But he doesn't he doesn't portray that publicly and on his team. And look they're going to be more interesting this year too. So that's why say it becomes just a just sort of a personal preference in the end in my opinion. I'm thinking probably too much like a front office person. I'm just thinking about the age, which is why I would take Rizzo results in a significantly younger than than Goldie or Batas. You know, one of my favorite players in sport. Yes. Josh who would you have in this among the trio? If we're if we're moving forward for several years, you've gotta say Rizzo, but this I still go vodka for this year alone. Okay. Well, the classic sort about this boss. The classic part about this is I thought when Goldie went to Saint Louis like there's no way he's gonna stay there. What wasn't that the original narrative at this is a disaster for the cardinals? He's never gonna stay there. And most people in baseball realized why wouldn't he stay there? This is this is one of the great baseball markets. They'll eventually come up with the dollars. They did it with other players in that organization..

"And it looked in the mirror, and I thought oh my God. I looked like a tomato. That's the way. It seemed to me knowing that I had a sports center hit the. It's morning. And I felt like I was completely roasted like lobster lobster tight bad. How badly I got sunburned. And then I went out this morning, and we had a TV crew here in Clearwater. And neither of them said a word when I was doing that. No anchor L Dunkin was the anchor. She didn't say a word I walked into the clubhouse. No player said a word. And I thought you know, what maybe it's not that bad. And that I was walking here to talk to you. Bonnie Clark works for the Phillies. She looked. She said get a little Florida son BUSTER, so apparently, it's really bad. So sportscenter is on TV in the studio down right now. And I just looked up L was on and she's wearing like a crimson dress is your skin darker or lighter than that? Starker? Thank God him colorblind. That's all I can tell you today. I was thinking is I looked at how badly sunburned. I am really stupid. It's too bad. Because I was going to make a joke when you were saying that you thought it was going to be really bad, and nobody was talking to you about it. So it may have been better than you expect it I was going to say that could be a little bit of foreshadowing for the pirates themselves. I mean, everyone thinks this is gonna be an awful year for them. Maybe it's not gonna be that bad after all. But no as it turns out, it says bad as you thought. Oh, come on what kind of a cheap shot is that a new way out the door? Wow. On. Okay. With the show. We'll be talking with call Ravitch about the pirates coming up here in a little bit.

I was getting into it. I was really getting nice. Let's hear that again. But I'll set it up better. He was asked as glad them Chato free agencies over. Maybe. We're gonna be growing the music gathers momentum right there you go. Peres Rozan with Golic and wingo. Talking about Bryce Harper's free agency. Now, the pressure is on the teams like the Philadelphia village Phillies gonna be a team that's going to come in. And come big on it.
