"Well, some of the things you have to think about, for instance. Is the roads we already have. I know you used to. Now that you're you drive generally, Roosevelt, but you drive the ship Canal Bridge life. I do. How would you rate that bridge? Oh, my God. I think it's gonna fall down every time I drive over it to feel like I'm hurting the alignment of my car. Exactly. We spend the state about $550 million a year just to keep things right up to date. I mean, with maintenance and preservation, and Roger Millar again, the head of D O T says they should be spending more than double that. Just to keep up. And so I mean, even if they were to cut projects and defer projects they still need to. I mean, we can't have I five out of commission. We can't have four or five out of commission. We already have the Western Bridge. I mean, so there are things that are out there that they need to take care of The one thing I know that they're not going to skimp on and I know a lot of people may You know, scoff it. This is they're going to keep aggressively spending to replace culverts that have blocked fish habitat. That's one thing that the governor has made quite clear that they're going to spend money where they can to do that. And let's face it. We're under a federal court order to To repair those covers to make sure that the fish could get the juvenile fish can get back and forth to their spawning grounds. So some people might say, Well, why? Why can't you just stop that? You know, that's so seems to be a luxury item. Well, it really, isn't it. Zach Court ordered Thing that the state has to do so. That's one thing that probably will not be deferred, at least picking a precursor. We look at what the governor has planned in terms of spending on transportation. Well, we'll continue to track that in the Legislature. Unfortunately, we have run out of time, Sully. Thank you. Yeah, drains you could text me I'll answer all your questions. They may not be as fun off the air, but but, yeah, Trust me there lots of things out there, and it's gonna be a tough session for lawmakers to try to figure out What they're going to choose to fund all the way around. Thanks only. Yeah, Okay, Still ahead. There's been a lot of focus on all the bad things that you can find.

"No more trap. Okay. I'm not exactly loving that bag of beer nuts. Oh, good. Let's just face but he's basically saying is we wanted to fulfill a mignon meal that we would have taken chicken, But they gave us a bag of peanuts pretty much to tide us over and we being the state Department of Transportation and They, like Many other agencies are going to the Legislature. Now that we're in session with their hands out going, we need help. The pandemic as you imagine, has decimated what they had forecasted for and what happened in December of November, December time frame of 2019. They kind of set out. Okay, Here's how much money we think we're going to get. And with that we will now fund the use particular projects well. The pandemic head and that nobody driving on the roads means less gas tax money. Nobody using toll lanes means less tolling money. I mean, they're losing out over their forecast, so they have $3 billion worth of stuff they promised to do, you know, road projects, maintenance, fish passage stuff. And they're down 1.3 billion, So they're going to the Legislature to ask for help. Hey, how can we back fill this in? Obviously the simplest answer and one that you most people are afraid of us. We're gonna have to find new revenue. Which means we're gonna have to go find new taxes. I mean, there's already been talk potentially of raising the gas tax again to try to help fill up some of this gap. There's already been talk of the fact that 5 20 tolls are going to have to go up even though they thought they were going. We're done with that five years ago because They can't pay off the bonds to pay for the construction of the 5 20 bridge. So, yeah, they're hurting and it's gonna be up to the Legislature to try to figure out what they can do to get the money back. And Roger Millar, the head of the Department of Transportation, that beer mint nuts, comment he was talking about. They had asked for help from the feds in Congress gave them in in a recovery package. 200 million, which sounds like a lot of money, but when you have $3 billion worth of responsibilities That's why 200 million to him is a bag of nuts. So if we don't have that $1.3 billion, what does that mean for us? That's what we're gonna do. We're waiting to find out exactly what the Legislature is going to have to do now because in the realities of what we're facing with the bank account in the state of Roger Millar, the head of the D O T says it's obvious something's that we promised. We're going to have to be pushed back. Some things are going to have to be deferred on. We don't know what those projects are yet because it's up to the Legislature to figure out what to fund with the money that they given a transportation projects. So we're not exactly sure what Might not be finished or what might have to be pushed back. Like, for instance, you know, finishing the 5 20 Bridge from Montlake over the high five is that you know going to be pushed back now because of this because they don't have the money, the extension of four or five and the widening of four or five That's getting underway this year to go down to rent in where we're adding another express toll lane there or the 167 Corridor or the Gateway Project, which continues 167 over the I five in the port of Tacoma. So we're gonna have to wait and see. But you know they've got to do some significant belt tightening and all these public agencies are hurting for money because of the pandemic, and so That's going to be the Legislature trying to have some very frank conversations to figure out what they're gonna fund. Now, Chris, I can hear people right now. Frustrated in pain broke. People don't have money. Are we really talking about We already have. The highest gas tax is one of them. Are we really gonna like Jack up prices in the middle of a time like this? Well, that's what a lot of Republican lawmakers and to be honest, Some Democrats are saying, You know, this now is not the time for this. But then the question is raised. How do we back fill that money that we thought we were going to get? And you're right. I mean, I've made this car come analogy several times during the pandemic, and when you see or I've made it, you know, government spending in general is You know why I go out and buy the five k t V or the four K TV when you can't pay your rent, Okay, Why don't we put you know We got people out there that are hurting. They're listening to show are cutting back there all cutting back on everything. Why shouldn't the government do the same? And I don't have a good answer for you on that. But yes, they are looking at potentially, you know, raising the gas tax for this And also let's not forget Governor. Inslee's climate agenda could add 50 cents automatically. To the gas tax for that. The climate stuff that he's looking at is now the right time to be pushing that in the middle of the global pandemic, your while people are struggling Tonto get their unemployment for nearly a year now. I mean, I I feel that from you, dres and those of the questions that lawmakers we're going to have to look themselves in the mirror at night and figure out okay. What are we doing here? And where is our priority? Well, the other thing, too, As you mentioned. Is there fewer people on the roads for your people using the roads? This could be what we're dealing with in the future as well. Is there much of an appetite for Okay, We're still going to need to spend the same amount of money that we were planning to. Even though we're not using the roads the same way. Well, some of the things you have to think about, for instance. Is the roads we already have. I know you used to. Now that you're you drive generally, Roosevelt, but you.

It knows a matter of fact, they're not the executive director of wash dot Roger Millar says, traffic congestion is a problem. We simply cannot solve. He's also the guy who said this, what gets measured gets managed. Funny thing hardly getting away with not fulfilling their statutory duty will it's right. Bear in the sentence, Roger Millar or party. This is a former washed-out secretary Doug MacDonald, put it. What gets measured gets managed the Washington policy center put in a public document requests to washed up. They wanted to know the percent of highway system, congested, the total hours. Of delay in millions of hours and the cost of delay state highways these numbers used to exist. They don't anymore. Washington State Department of transportation searched all the records. They don't have a record of tracking traffic congestion why they stopped doing it. To paraphrase it become too difficult for them. So that congestion, you're sitting in. Legally their job to cut it. So they stopped measuring. Feeling about traffic congestion. Now. There you go. We will share the story on the social media channels, so you can enjoy it with friends. Maybe call wash dot and ask them if they're going to get around the following the law would come back on the candy. Mike Todd show. Que no bike lanes. More bike lanes. No bike lanes now.

"And it's one of my favorite things to do sit down with her dad. I'm he'll sit and talk with you about this stuff. And he's got the inside on everybody because he was right in there. I mean, from shed Atkins at the time that said was the head of RCA. And. A completely different side of Chet Atkins talk to bog, it was incredible. And a lot of I've been watch it here. But no, he's he's, he's walking history. He's a walking history, but he's really fascinating talk with twenty. Is the studio musicians are so well respected among these stars because they know how important they are. I mean especially back then, if you like I, I always think about playing king of the road. You know that Roger Millar brought Bob playing it that, well that that was the hook of the tune. Oh, absolutely. Yeah. All that stuff. And. He those guys can come up with that stuff on the spot. Oh, yeah. The red lights on two o'clock. So you better get this done. It's it was incredibly still have guys like that out there or people aren't doing well I mean, there's still some records being made in studios, but so many people are making records in their bedrooms. Now they record a lot of the tracks, maybe not the whole record. But there's still some great studios Nashville and here I'm sure in LA and New York of horse being to to your to your point, the talent requirements are so much different now than they were back then there wasn't the technical ability to alter performance. The jury that there is now. And so these guys got it right now. You can go in there, you can tune people. You can you can move this note over to that play one verse. And then you cut and paste a computer anymore, you know, and that's really what it is. And so it's not kind of what these guys. Do I grew up? I'm not that young. So, like, I remember it was tape machines. Yeah. And you punched in and whatever you had to do in your name. But most of it, you have to kind of get it when they hit the red light and, you know, my father did a lot, a lot of times he did four sessions a day. And the sessions were at ten in the morning and say, we went three hours and you had an hour break, then an afternoon, another one at six and then at ten at night. So he sometimes they would do for today, and he would do for says today for days on end. So I didn't see him all that much honestly, but. But they would get in a groove and just the same guys locked up in a recording studio. You know, I'm sure they were drinking a little bit. And they were they were so great. Oh magic. If you look listen back to the talent on those astounding. It's an amazing time that will never be repeated. I can imagine that kind of thing ever happening. It's funny. What you were talking about that. I remember John Fogerty did that first album we were talking about Fogarty before, but when he left credence did his own thing, the centerfield, and he played all the instruments, and who knew that now that's what a common. I mean he was really talented stuff's great. But it's the same problem in the radio business anybody with a microphone, convenient nounce or now because with things like YouTube, and podcasts and so forth. But imagine the mentality growing up with what you grow up with now. I mean, the only time you've ever get to see a live perform back when we were growing up is you go to a concert, and that was a rare especial event. You know you're Bumgarner with YouTube. You could see anything you want one ever you want and. I see a different cellular thing going on with kids, who watch some of the great, they're incredible at eight years old. I mean it's a whole different thing that's going on. We are chatting with entrepreneurs and entertainers when the more and Mark Stephen kindle one. That's why you guys do. Silverton is so special people can have fun with it. Live music is a real treat and it's a dying art form. I think it is a dying art form unfortunate. Fortunately, his chains used to be so many more venues for musicians to play in. And now they've changed a lot of that. I mean it's become more corporate. And like some of the rooms that we played in they turned into slot machine rooms. Yeah. The now and, you know, and they might be bringing in more revenue, but I feel badly for the patrons that come out to Vegas. I mean so many times we used to play at the Hilton we were kind of the, the house band there for a while. And I mean, we would have people that would. Come in one night. And they were saying man, we've been looking for this all week and we've been in all the hotels, and we didn't see anything like this. And this is what exactly these fears that we hope to get in Vegas, but we didn't until now we're leaving tomorrow and sad. But I wish that the executives at the casinos really understood that they're really catering to the younger generation down there. And they're doing all the. Cyclical. Let's hope. Things are people really, if you get a chance to Silverton, if you happen to be out here when they're playing. You got to go see it, and you guys are such interesting people. That's probably why I think the problem was great because you do so. Many other things I wanna talk to you about a couple of them. One thing when you do a thing called, Maryland. And you look like Marilyn Monroe and talk a little about what that is. Because this fill people don't realize still demand to be around Marilyn Monroe. And of course, you can't have her. But boy, what do you do? What are these things like who do you work for when you for these things? Well about a year and a half ago, Mark, and I were at a party and there was a Frank Sinatra tribute artist there. And he had on a long dress that night because it was a Christmas party. And I want, you know, and he walks over to me, and he says, boy, you know, you kind of remind me of Maryland, your vibe and all that. And would you ever want to do impersonation, and I'd never done it before? And I'm like, I don't know. Maybe I, maybe I'll think about it. You know. So I did. And then also a lot of people that see Mark say man, you look like Ozzy Osbourne. And so, you know, we thought, hey, this reform one night. Let's get dressed up like Ozzy and Maryland and go take some photos. So we did. We went to the what's it called the artist's NBA hotel, which has an amazing vibe, and we went and took a bunch of and a professional photographer friend of ours came and took some great fighters, and we posted them on Facebook. And the next thing I know, you know, a booking agent Townsend. Hey, I saw that picture view is Maryland. Facebook heaven doing a gig and I'm like, well, what do I have to do? So he said, you know, he told me what today, just dress up like her steady her a little bit act like her talk like her and learn some songs. So I did it was that simple. And I may I actually made the pink dress that she wore diamonds are girl's best friend or gentlemen, prefer blondes was the movie, but this one was song yet. So I, I made the dress because I couldn't find one that on the internet, and, and I made it and did the bio in the back and the whole thing. I mean it was just crazy. And I was pictures on Facebook, and I got so many lives and hits and people just they just let it. I mean they just love anything about her. And then when I go and do a gig is amazing how people react to me. I mean I almost feel guilty like. You know, they get nervous and every time, like, hey, I'm not really heard back. You know I thought it was going to hurt her for a second there. I think. But he's a pull it off. Let's see every issue here seeing this stuff. It's outrageous. It's really fun. I it's such a change from what I do. And it's an escape from reality interesting, if people the fact that you would combine Ozzy with Merrill, you couldn't be any further to personnel. The proof. There's I'm still waiting for my first boss. No, they're not quite as endeared to Ozzy in the same way, I think they are in Maryland. Black seven little is right. Let's call these corporate gigs. There are a lot of fun to right. I mean, people they go into those things to have a good time again, kind of like the act, and we, we had a really good experience. When people think corporate, they don't tend to think duos normally performance do, and we just did a movie premiere at the south point about five six hundred people there. And then we did a big curling event at the at the Orleans, and we don't get enough corporate stuff. But we really, really wonderful with the crowd. She really isn't. Yeah. So if you're listening corporate. Absolutely. Absolutely. We'll we'll before we we'd we'll tell people have it can get a hold here. But also you into the fashion world is if that wasn't enough boots that are incredible. We had bunker Bradley on a few weeks ago, and he talked a little about, you know, the style Vegas. And it seems like you're trying to do the same thing with this is a style. A lot of people are going to really like that. If I had to get into it, what makes them special. So as an entertainer, who stands on stage for a long time, I needed comfort, and about six years ago, I had an idea to make a boot that was a little more comfortable and was versatile. I actually bought a boot once and I couldn't get zipped up because they make the calf part too tight. A lot of designers. And so I cut the boot in half and I figured out this two part boot idea patented the idea and marketing would walk around Vegas, and people would stop me all the time. Where did you get those? But it's where did you get those boots, and I'm like, well, I kind of made them, and then they're like, what and I go into my story, and this happens so often that, Mark. Finally goes what did you say, Mark? No, I went we have to market this. I mean enough. You know it was like we really was ridiculous everywhere you would go. They would comment on these boots.

"Mark Napier sheriff doing this morning. Jarrod. I'm committing up to finish to attend the border related video right now. Okay. Don't you know it's against the law now to be on the phone and. Okay. Legal, just making sure just making sure I know your law enforcement. I wanna make sure you. All right. Okay. All right. So were you shocked that shared Bronson voted? Yes. And it was three to two and you're able to get the operation stone garden funds. No, I wasn't shot gear because I know that supervise abroad that is really been doing her homework. He's reached out to me and my staff multiple times. Ridiculous probation. I was down talking to ranchers outside of no gala on Saturday. I knew that a lot of those people were in her district, and they were concerned they wanted this money I told them reach out, supervisor abroad, said she needs to hear something other than the opposition to this. So I, I like Roger Millar I commend her anymore. She did her due diligence. She found procreate compromise and move the ball forward. She did exactly what we wanted to do. So I've got nothing but compliments word this morning. Now, let's talk about the, the negotiation what were you giving up in order to get the one point eight million dollars, really not a lot Garrett? What people don't understand is humanitarian aid in the indirect costs are something that your border sheriffs Beaumont over you. But that's your panels coaches. Myself have been going back to Washington DC lobbying for. So this is something that is in the wheelhouse of the border sheriffs. Because Garrett, if they gave me two million dollars for overtime to the point my people, I couldn't spend it because I burned my people out. So we're about saturated on about overtime that we can spend without, you know, 'cause in burnt out to our folks. So we've been asking Washington DC to expand the umbrella of the that we can buy. But. Hang on hang on hang on chair. If you must you must be passing red rock because that's where Ryan lives. And, and there's not really a little black hole in the Univer. Yeah, exactly. There's no supermarket. But he loves it at least there's Ryan out there. So we stay faraway. So I'm sorry. So, so you had again about what, what you what you have lost or didn't really lose the concessions, you made. I'm sorry. Jared, I am getting but no, the sheriffs have been lobbying Washington DC were they've coverage of indirect cost event hearing aid is otherwise born on the back of the county taxpayers. And so this is something we've been going back to DC and lobby for, we've got a great relationship with our federal partners in Washington DC, I would justify before congress last week, and they hurt us. And so they've expanded the scope of what still good cover and we agree with that. So this was a concession, but it's something that we've actually been lobbying for. Okay. So let's talk about the concessions again. Ice is going to stay out of jail that you, you're jail. It's not that big of a deal. I mean what else was there anything vital because they want to act like they won. They, you know, Sharon Bronson voted yes, but she can't give everything away, even though she's going to get attacked now. And Allie Miller said she was threatened by Isabel Garcia. So there's nothing that you and your mind that, that, you know, you wouldn't negotiate back and forth. Nothing that, that you have given. Up that's going to be of any consequence to get this deal done. No, the ice pain. We still cooperate with ice. I have a great relationship with ice. The only issue is whether or not, they had a cubicle inside of my jail. It was a convenience issue. So that's, that's really not a huge factor at all we still do everything we've always done there. The one thing I was a little bit pointed about is we had some license plate readers in there that I really would like they provide great intelligence information, whereas and there was some civil libertarian issue surrounding knows, so they don't want us to purchase those with federal grant money, and that's fine. I'll just purchase them out of my regular budget. Man. Sheriff Mark Napier is on Canada's AM seven hundred right now. So did you stay for the whole meeting yesterday? Were you there for a good portion of that meeting yesterday? I stayed with old. Thank Eric, listen to all of that. I would be remiss if I did not say that all those people that asserted that my deputies are racist, that they're involved in racial, profiling, that they're indiscriminately stopping people color that is false. Make no mistake about that. I don't believe that for one minute. I've asked him to provide me croup that actually is occurring provide proof. And I'll look into it. I I've gotten no such crew the minute women came together. Here's department, I have the greatest respect where I'm so proud to be able to leave that organization and to hear them beat up for hours and hours and hours is raises is is really inappropriate and offensive. You know, that's one of the things about Garcia said, was that border patrol is just there to stop Brown people. And now you're sheriff's deputies will help them do that. I thought that was one of the most offensive things I've ever heard my life and I'm not easily offended. Yeah. I'm offended because I see the work that these people do every day. Been a lot more smoking for a long time. These people put their lives on the line for our community every day and hear them beaten down like that is inappropriate. If you have some concerns about racial profiling or other things that are legitimate, bring them forward. We'll explore them, we'll, we'll look into those things, but don't just state these things as if they're back to, to rate law enforcement. That's inappropriate sheriff, there were two admitted illegal aliens, on the community law enforcement partnership commission, the clip seaboard that recommended that stone garden be rejected. A third came out yesterday. They some guy named Jamie today. Oh, apparently got up there. I dunno if you witness this, he got up there and identified himself as undocumented. Did you see that? No. I did not see that part. I was trying to take care of work at the same time I'd say through the media. So this guy gets up there. And he's, so there's three days shouldn't we have a problem that there were three illegal aliens on community law enforcement partnership commission that does accuse your deputies for being racist? They wanted deny you all kinds of grants that would help protect the border, your deputies those kinds of things. Why should illegal aliens have influence over that? That's a question better directed to the board of supervisors who appoint these people to this board. But will you will you? In fact, that was is invited. Again. Those videos, will you bring that to the attention of the of the supervisors isn't that a bit much. I think they're well aware of here. Let me ask you this to okay. Yeah. There. Well there. Control. Okay. So, so let's also shift gears a little bit that eighteen year old illegal alien from desert view high school. That you're deputy ran the plates and there was expired insurance. No registration driving licence. He found out eventually and the admitted he was here illegally protest outside of your office. The they want to see everything's racist, blah, blah, blah. But you're deputy said you know, hey he said he admitted he's here illegally. So as ten seventy says we have to hold onto them until border patrol gets here before we get into that, if this Jamie today. Oh, he publicly admitted right there at a at a meeting public could even got to supervise your deputies or there. You're there. Why didn't you guys hold him for border patrol? He admits that he's here in this country illegally. I just went through a little dead spot. Oh, so, so, okay, so, so they'll look to stop with the, the young desert. Hang on hang on sheriff, before you do that, again, the despot I wanted to related to this. This board member Jamie today. Oh from the community law enforcement partnership commission. He was at the supervisor meeting yesterday where he got up to the Mike and identified himself as undocumented. So he made it he is here illegally, and your sheriff's deputies are there, you're there. Why couldn't one of your deputies hold onto him since he admitted being in this country illegally? Is that what s we ten? Seventy says they should have stopped him and held him for border patrol just like they did for that eighteen year old. Gary or patrols not president there. Uh-huh. Damn sheriff you with me. No. He's driving on I ten sorry. Garrett. Run it through dead spots. Okay. He said border patrol wasn't there. Well they weren't there. Also in the deputy made this the stop of the eighteen year old. So I couldn't you guys hold him Espy seventy S b ten seventy says if someone is admits they're here illegally. They must be held to border patrol gets there. Right. Hold on the interview continues next. What is moile day me? Remember all of the veterans and soldiers. S ST AM, seven nine three members members who saw most stimulating talk eighty six burglars were asked, how they broke into homes and they all said they knocked on the door.

"So the city Seattle owns some really valuable real estate that I guess once upon a time wasn't as valuable as it would be now, obviously real estate grows in its worth, particularly when it has incredible views or neighborhoods change or like Seattle in western Washington. All of a set of influx of people the economy etcetera, these pieces of land, there's super valuable. So there is a discussion city council mayor looking at should we give some of these nonprofit groups that have been operating at a places like the central or up in Phinney ridge, the Greenwood senior center, should we give them these buildings. So that they can undergo then fix up cleanup in making the buildings better. Or should we sell the buildings and the question isn't just that? I think there's a third way to this. And that would be to licensed the space to private companies. So that we could take repeating revenues, and then serve those revenues towards helping seniors and other people that we want to help I. I can see how this is a challenge for the city council. But from an economic perspective, it looks like a loser's deal to not get the repeating regenerating revenues and help people that way, but you're still displacing people who have come to expect that building to be there as a cornerstone of their community. I don't want to displace it. That's obviously why it's difficult then well, it would be difficult. But it would be that you would do this over time. You certainly wouldn't go kick them out. You would do it over time. Yeah. There's always a little bit of a danger of getting the city in the business of business. Right. And there's. In getting a city in the business of selling whatever, it has to the highest bidder had not actually worrying because sometimes better public policy isn't actually going to the highest bidder. And so you have situations from mass transit to city leasing land that the city actually has to pony up and absorbed some of that additional cost or additional burden itself. Which is why city services exist in many cases. And so I'm not sure that I want. I'm not sure a lot of people. If you think about the the how this would play out wanna live in a city where the city that sits around and waits for all, right? Who's the highest bidder on that? Let's sell to that. And let's not worry about other things that we need to worry about the city that are not necessarily linked to the highest bidder is. Yeah, I guess if I didn't see a great big scam with the homeless industrial complex understand something. I'm not sweeping everybody into that. I want you to be clear, I've got a family member. Who is he's executive director of one of the biggest government agencies that helps low income people with housing, and he's. True. Blue one most artists, man. I know I know it's honest people in it. But when I look at Frank chops, properties, etc. I look at the flow of money and look at the scam. Capitol Hill you build low income housing for twelve years. You get a tax write off than later, you kick the people out it's no longer low income now it's a luxury apartment so Mike. I think that stuff goes on. Now, I'm truly trying to think about how we take this property and help more people and getting the city in the business last thing I want, but a simple licensing deal that's stuff that hard to figure out. No, it's not that hard to figure out. But it does still put the city in a weird weird area. Legally. I mean, this is not that is not supposed to be the underpinning of the way the city the city can sell off a piece of land. That's good because the city can then walk away from that at somebody else's responsibility. Putting the city in as as the city's largest Airbnb provider or property manager. I don't know that that's necessarily good idea when it is property that they have to manage for profit. And then when they are beholden to a variety of different city council members and multiple elections over time that to me sounds like a nightmare. Not like anything. That's good for the city. So you once reached I think because they don't want to assume because. Today. Assumed you do so frequently actually I would say the other day. So I would say, yeah. I would say, yeah. I get repetitive. Cecil injury from listen to the listen to the the the in therapy Todd, Mike, it's my recollection that you, and I agreed that one of the things the city should do with NBA teams are set your or NHL is taken percentage of the team. Right. Well, we talked about it every one of our conversations that we have. No, I don't remember agreeing about. But I did say that I understand where you're coming from that cities. But the league's don't actually allow for that. Right. I don't think we should push. In fact, they even changed in the NFL. They changed the rules regarding ownership structure based on one team, which was that Seattle Seahawk. Green Bay Packers. Right. Because it's owned by the people thus. You know, what happens? You can't actually move the team with that happened. You had the city into the ownership group, and they lose all of their leverage. So no that will never happen randomly enough. Where do you go to a Packers game? They give you a beer sweater. Instead of a Cousy your hand. Will not freeze to the cancer. Well that settles at all what we need is more. What you call it a beer Cousy cozy. No, it's a beer sweater. They give you in Green Bay. I've been okay. I know here's what I trust. But it is Cousy. It's Cousy yakuza terrible. We're helping you out with a magnet. So that you can stick them on the side of your rig for tailgate. It's pretty cool. So that the tunnel wash dot man, they're all over at boy, they got it all figured out the Roger Millar and the team there. So we had another backup in the tunnel. Yes. I know that there is not the new exit there yet. I'm I I take a certain bit of celebration in this because I want people to realize what wash dots doing? So there was smoke. I guess in the tunnel. Then washed out said, oh, we need to turn on the fans manually because folks were driving in the car is getting tweets from people saying, hey, is this supposed to be a lot of smoke and haze in the tunnel is everything. Okay. And I just wrote back and said W S DOT, and they said, oh my gosh. No get me out of here so wash that said, oh, don't worry. We'll turn on the fans, and you probably won't suffocate. You're you're almost right. There was a lot of smoke in Hayes in decisions about the tunnel. No, no. There was much. Okay. Because you know, that that was a joke dot okay, thanks guys banana leaf. Fan and out of there. So the backup. So let me get. Everybody's prediction on this. Because here's what here's what someone who told told me who drove the tunnel. He is in construction. He comes down here. Quite a bit. He says, okay, the Mercer exit. You come out of the tunnel.

With actually teach airline pilots now to Mike Lewis's point wash dot said, they didn't expect today would be the worst. We do expect Monday traffic to be a little bit lighter than normal because it's it's a Monday. But as the traffic volumes build over the week, it's important that we'd be diligent and stick with our new travel plan. Now, I'm rooting for badness here. I am I because I want people to understand the fruits of their decision to vote for people who hate our personal mobility. And who hate the fact that we drive and who are unwilling to operate in the reality of how people want to live their lives and in choose I said. Instead in choose perpetual, adolescence we liked by cycles, and we like buses, and if we just make driving painful enough, everybody's gonna give in and jump on and Choo Choo train a be shipped around like a package, and it's ever going to happen. That's I think that's a terrific point. Todd, by way of it being an insane point. This is this is I mean, unless you sane point unless you anticipate landfill or something that's going to actually expand the geography in some fashion. I don't know how you actually antipates that we are going to do more to accommodate more cars when it's full. It's full. Expanding lanes like they've done this time. So they've expanded the I five lanes they painted new lanes. When the Choo Choo train, stole a bunch of lanes on the bridge. They suddenly painted new lanes. Plus, I've heard this thing about computer driven cars, which will be controlled by Ray. Great. One. I'm never going to be in one. But that's okay. Other people are and that that smooths out the commute and the folks who are building all this transit infrastructure. They know that they want to embedded in our lives because once it's all built, oh, you can't fire the government workers. It's not an insane point, Mike, you know, this year reported that the executive director of the Washington State Department transportation, Roger Millar said I refuse to work congestion. He's a guy who wants us all shoved into the city. So we all live in the beautiful beautiful towers downtown. He said as much well, he didn't exactly that's that's somewhat out of context what he was actually saying when he was talking about that is that there are certain areas that congestion were not going to solve by building more lanes, and that's entirely true. We aren't there isn't even room for them. If you wanna go down I five in any stretch that is inside a populated area where the problems exist and find me that extra space. I'd be delighted let's built or not actually going to build up. Let's build tunnels for cars versus tiny little tunnels for future. This is a tunnel that we're talking about right now that was built for cars. It's not it's built for people to avoid downtown. It's built. With thirty three percent fewer lanes in the then divide tat. It's built to make sure people bypass downtown. It's not built with any notion of getting people downtown micro you seriously suggesting needed. There's not a warrant cars at there's not that they're not killing lanes and trying to make it harder to drive that's not part of the design. Well, of course that I mean, I don't know what you mean by a war on cars first off. I mean that sounds like that sounds like language designed to make me respond to something that doesn't actually exist. So let's just let's remove that. And let's just talk about whether or not you can actually build enough infrastructure to make everyone be able to drive by themselves in their own car anywhere in any populated metropolitan area on the planet. And you can't I think our water makes it impossible for that to happen. Because you're talking about something similar that we saw in Boston during the big dig where you're going under rivers and under bays and underwater, and that is such a huge overall project. She's not it's not feasible without mean by the Warren cars is the war in cars where people. Have said we need to make it more difficult to drive downtown. We need to insert pain. There would even do simple things. Here's a simple thing that could make downtown a much more joyful place. All the cars stopped all the walkers walk. That'd be really easy. They don't wanna do that. They want to advantage transit which moves the fewest percentage of people in terms of finding space. I say buildup double I five I love to see a double triple deck. I five I'd like to see that to move people the way they want to be moving. But maybe that just makes me all wrong headed in that. I want to respond to what people are going to do pray for some food you trade, then a state income tax for that double decker on I five state income taxes illegal unless it's equally Levy a tax to pay for that double decker. I would add efficiencies to government, I would instantly efficiencies, and let's do this. We're going to talk about paying things. Why don't we have transit be self-supporting? Why don't we have people who ride the Choo Choo train pay seventy percent of their fair like they do in terms of the ferries, etc. Why don't we do that? Instead of have all the people who drive their cars be forced to subsidize this to the tune of thirty or forty. Thousand bucks per year for some of us. I'll never train. Well. Yeah. But you're benefiting from it being there. No, I'm not you're also paying for public schools that you are not attending I'm assuming although you know, you did complete sixth grade. Correct. Well.
