Let's go down to Edwards who's on the sidelines hall of Famer, hey, Ed, so much talk about the Rams kicker and his plan. The foot being a problem all week. He was on the injury list out Greg's airline doing an warm-ups, Jim. He just went through a rather extensive pre-game kicking warm up all of which I observed it appeared he hit the vast majority of his attempts including one from fifty eight yards afterward. I asked him about his session. And he said, and then I said, well, you didn't think it was good. He said it was okay. But there's always Rupert prove it. And then I asked him about the condition of his injured plant foot. He said, quote, it's good enough. And interestingly enough, Jim all of this took place under the scrutiny of the patriots assistant coaches who stood out there arms. Folded watching him very carefully.

"The truth about money. I have an apology to the late great Retha Franklin when she passed away. You may recall the word was out that she died without a will. And I was rather critical of that because Retha had cancer. She'd had it for two years diagnosed prior to or passing and yet she died without a will leaving her estate pretty much in shambles. And creating a lot of legal issues for her family. And I was critical of that saying come on. We have an obligation. We have a responsibility to do proper estate planning wills and trusts, and such so that our wishes are executed and helping to avoid family fights avoiding expenses associated with the disposition of the estate and simultaneously accelerating the transfer of assets to your heirs, and I was critical of this latest example of a famous person dying without a will probably have to. College is. And here's why a new study is about to be released. I got an advance copy of it that took a look at the comparison of life expectancies and charitable giving. And the study determined that people who have a long time to live are more likely to make charitable donations. Then those who have only six months to live. They controlled in this research for religion, volunteerism health age gender, race marital status presence of children, retirement, status, education, and other wealth factors. In other words, they ruled out everything else and said all other factors being equal people who are about to die tend not to give money away. They tend not to deal with their wills and trusts. It's a psychological thing. And I guess I have to admit I get it that if you're diagnosed with a terminal illness if you're facing your. Death, quite frankly, the last thing you're thinking about is paperwork. The last thing you're thinking about is giving money to charity. It's when you're healthy. And you're confident that you've got ten twenty thirty years to live that you focus more on. Hey, the what if questions G if something happens to us, we want to make sure we take care of the kids and grandkids or hey, we do want to support charities or church or what have you? And so I think that was the situation with Aretha. She was diagnosed. And that kind of ended the conversation. So I wanted to mention that to you. And the reason I'm mentioning to you the moral of the story. The actionable step for you. Is you healthy? Got a good long life expectancy between you and your spouse. Create have you updated your state documents? Do you have a will in the first place? Now's the time to do. It. Don't take the attitude. I'll wait until I get a diagnosis because as a.

We were having that the end of our previous segment when you were talking about how once Richard Nixon was elected president, he ordered. His aides to begin immediate eradication of the Black Panther party.

They headed up to southern California chapter the black part in the Los Angeles community. Eric, the what I'm trying to say here is that. That was the first attack on the part of the power structure using the us organization, etcetera. In a conflict situation to kill and murder. The leaders of the Los Angeles chapter, the blackout, the party do that process in the next three or four months. They attack more than twenty two offices I'm talking about in Indiana.
