Republican Voters Reflect On The Republican National Convention

"The Republican National Convention wrapped up on the South Lawn of the White House last night. That's where President Trump gave the final speech of the week He talked about law and order about American greatness and bash Joe Biden. We wanted to hear from some conservative voters on how the message is from the RNC landed this week from President Trump's speech last night. I feel like this was the line when he said that we do not put our trust In politicians or government. As our Saviour. We put our faith in Almighty God. Listen, Dick button, and I would second that when I saw the young man speaking about how he was cancelled. So were you talking about Nick Sandman, the young man who had Had the experience on the National Mall. So he got featured and talked about the idea of cancel culture. And it's something that is very important to me because my Children are more conservative. When they go out to college, or even at work. They will be. I don't know they will be bullied. I feel that there is an issue of freedom of speech. This is Dick Button ing. I agree, Chauncey. I really appreciated his speaking and for a young man. He really did a great job of stating. How he throat there were so many black Republicans Black Latino Asian, It was sort of a multi racial vision of the party that isn't necessarily in line with the data of the voting patterns. Can you talk about what you thought about what you heard from those speakers? Well, I think it's something that needed to be pointed out. Yes and tohave the black people coming forward and making that statement I thought was good. It was absolutely necessary for the convention to have people of different backgrounds and different status in life because It's the media and it's the message and that's what's causing all the unrest that saying Either you're here or you're there, and that's unfair. It's been unfair to the president from day one. You said something that this is the cause of unrest. This divisiveness What's your response to the viewers who say the cause of the unrest is police misconduct? Listen, this country is a big country with a lot of police departments and They probably are and there is justice. That's nothing Serve properly to say that it's systemic to state. It's systemic. To me, that's cowardice. My daughter is a nurse. And there are good nurses and there are bad nurses. There are good doctors and there are bad, doc and there are good policemen, and unfortunately what back we spent, and I'm sure we've all had that. Paul. Let me let you jump in here. Clearly, there are instances of excessive use of police force. Police officers are, in fact human beings and some human beings. They're bad things, whether by mistake or by malice, the insistence on framing The use of police force in racial terms has ruined any chance of an honest conversation about it. Right now, the president is dealing with a number of crises. There's the pandemic, There's thie. Massive job loss. And there are these protests over police misconduct. The's are all things that have happened under his watch. It's a little different from being new to the political scene and saying Here's how I'm going to improve things. If voters on the fence and watching all this why should they not think that the buck stops with him publicly here? I'll jump right in on that the president actually tried to get out in front of the Corona virus. The steps that he tried to take initially were blocked and he was chastised for them by the opposition party. As well as the riots that have been going on. The president has offered help to the cities and states. Not only has he been rejected, he had been ridiculed. He's been told to get out of there State He's been Billa vied. It sounds like what you guys were saying is the message to voters is None of this is his fault, and he tried and he needs another four years to improve the situation. I would go so far as to say it's sabotage.

He was traveling around the show horse circuit, making a ton of money and getting away with it for a long time. Tommy off in this is. I can't keep on saying this is disgusting, but just truly know that that's what I'm thinking in my head Tommy often had repeat customers. One Guy Hired him fifteen fucking times fifteen. It's fifteen years stopped buying horses yet. Yeah, just maybe take up something else. Fuck up stamps other cheap. These people weren't just random rich people either the types of customers Tommy. Tommy had were the nation's leading trainers, owners and riders with influence in the community, and they were like a big deal and Tommy was starting to climb the ranks. He wasn't just a stable hand anymore. Tommy had created a very important role for himself in this community he knew their deepest darkest secrets obviously, and therefore had a lot of power again Tommy's. A terrible one that you go to. Tell me, did this for a very long time like I, said decades, working in the shadows of this very showy and industry, but it all came crumbling down when a new customer called him with a disturbing.

"Under also known as the Sandman using different texture assets whether it's this year or years from now they're very important steps S. take now to ensure you're on track to retire on time and financially confident so today we're gonna share exactly what they are as we tease out the five smart moves you need to make sure you're doing to retire on time in a course on your terms so what's wrong with that seventy percent rule that's the rule that says that you can live on seventy percent of what you're earning right now at work when you actually retire well I found that the most retirees end up spending actually more than that more than they did when they were working so the seventy percent rule could virtually bankrupt you faster than you thought and so remember this when once you retire going to no longer be contributing to a four one K. or any other type of workplace retirement plan so that expense typically goes away and if you contribute to a health savings account through your job that expense will possibly go away as well maybe it just depends on how you're gonna categorize your income later once you sign up for Medicare you can no longer contribute to an HSA I don't know if you knew that but once you do go for Medicare he just say option goes away but you can use the money in the HSA accounts to pay for your unreimbursed healthcare costs in any sort of deductibles that you may have so that's why I really love the HSA account and if you don't have one I highly recommend you get one started even if you're out on your retirement still can give you some pretty good tax free money that you can use for that now if you plan to pay off your mortgage again that's usually a very large line item you can remove from your budget as you start to build your budget for your retirement plans although remember this you're still going to need to pay the property tax your homeowner's insurance and of course any maintenance yesterday we were reviewing this with the client and he said you know I spend maintenance every year my house because things just break and fall apart and how do you really know what to put in there in terms of a number because you could have a a roof problem you could have a water heater go out just depends right in your fridge you need all those sort of things out all we can do is look at an estimate look at the age of your house look at any major deferrals you've done that need to be done of particular kinds of water damage and so forth so many we try to get a good idea around that as we build out for you now what about your medical costs even if you're eligible for Medicare member that starts when you're sixty five don't forget to add the cost of that back into your monthly expenses it's not cheap and many of my clients have been surprised at how much it costs particularly if there are two of you know earlier in the show I was talking about Terry and his wife Jane you see Jane just stop working in Terry has been retired now for some time James worried because Terry likes to play quote the stock market is entertaining to him but with a large drawdown that happened on March twenty third Jane is worried that they're going to run out of money in retirement particularly if we have another two thousand a scenario occur add to that they have an adult child Trevor and Trevor's still on the payroll so they're paying for his rents while he's looking for jobs and living with friends the truth is though all of these unknowns can complicate even the most sophisticated team of planners because it's impossible to figure out how much of a drain drivers going to be on their savings and of course their relationship because James just not comfortable now what if Terry has to sell stocks while the retired to pay some of the bills that are gonna come up like a roof for instance then what what if the market's down any US to liquidate some of those shares I couldn't stop myself from shuttering when Terry suggested during the conversation that he wanted to give Trevor a hundred thousand dollars to be used as a down payment on a new condo so we can stop paying rent to someone else then I said what about the mortgage Terry how's it gonna four doesn't have a job and you're not working anymore she's going to qualify for the loan changes smiled Terry and Jane wanted to know more so we went into some more things like health care I told them that according to the Kaiser foundation the average Medicare beneficiaries spent more than fifty four hundred dollars in out of pocket costs for health care and that was just for one person so in their case they had to double that then I asked them whether they would sign up for Medicare part B. last part D. plan a Medigap plan or were they going to go with a Medicare advantage plan they looked at me like a deer in the headlights so then I went on to explain to them that a Medicare advantage plan provides medical and drug coverage from a private insurer that has its own network of doctors and since Terry's health wasn't so great and he likes his doctors that would be a better way to go and they agreed with that Harry also happens to have bad teeth and I pointed out that the.

"It's kind of like a nuanced law. Understand right. It's we can't compel you but we you have to take our contracts. We have to incentivize you. There's a lot of kind of squishy language so it's pretty understandable to me that there's a lot of misunderstanding not just by the public but by people in the administration. Even if that's not the thing you want to hear but no it does not nationalize industry again. The government has to offer these companies essentially market price. And but but I think there isn't convenience for for companies to retrofit a factory right or they have to build something you there is an inconvenience there right and so it it is a they are being paid for it but it is certainly. I'm like it doesn't seem as inconvenient as a pandemic for everyone else who can't work but yeah I get. It is a little messed. It is interesting thing where the. Us hasn't had this kind of collective action effort in a couple of generations. So it's it's a different thing for. I think industry to wrap it's head around to we're talking about the notion that the administration might be confused about the extent of the act and its application in this particular moment but there is reporting that they had used it thousands of times in fact in response to hurricanes for various military production. I think keep talking about that and why this time. It feels different in terms of the resistance. That's their shirt. To be fair. To the administration there are a couple of clauses of the act and so the first clause which is most commonly used typically by FEMA. So Jared Kushner probably wasn't dealing with the Minutia of Puerto Rican Hurricane Relief. Fema uses the power of the DP which is basically to jump the line in the supply chain right so if people need a lot of medical supplies the government gets to say. Yeah you fill our contracts I and so that's that power is pretty routinely used as is a little bit more so the power of distributing emergency supplies the third power of compelling industry or incentivizing industry to produce things is new and the people within FEMA at the trump administration understand those powers. I think where you get to the disconnect. I mean you saw jared Kushner in the White House briefing room last week early this week. Time runs together saying you know our our federal stockpile is not for the state's now. That's wrong right. That is that's not. That's not correct. And that's kind of what I mean. Is that there are there are certainly some people within the administration. Know what's happening but I think there is. There are also people in power decision makers who either willfully misunderstand the act or just do what misunderstand the activists powers because there has been a lot of confusion around it for sure and I mean you know my personal feeling is i. Don't think Jared Kushner has a real strong understanding of anything and should not be addressing the American people for any reason But clearly that did 'cause most of the confusion about these stockpiles. You know when you were reporting though on how effective the full force of the EPA would be. Did you get a sense of what that would look like? Is that something that needed to happen? Much earlier I think it probably would have been to ramp up production of these things. Gm had started to make these ventilators earlier. Yes you would see. You would see the stuff much sooner but the fact that I think the uncomfortable Ange unfortunate fact of all this is is the United States government. Was Ill prepared for the pandemic. It did not have you know you're you're hearing about expired medical supplies in stockpiles. Your this was a problem that was almost you know there was a seed already in the ground and so I don't think of sooner you know an earlier implementation of the DP would've made a difference on that point right there are still thousands and thousands of ventilators that need to get people in New York. We're seeing you know like the Patriots flag flying in the Patriots plane flying in masks from China. That's frankly a more realistic procurement for us in. The immediate term is getting masks and supplies from places overseas often China. The make these supplies and again. We're in a globalized world. And we are competing with all the other countries in the world that have this pandemic problem and you do see you know. You do. See these glimmers of trump wanting to keep masks in the United States. And we don't want to sell the mask to Canada or The Times did some interesting reporting last week on trump trying to by the German company that is researching the vaccine for cove in nineteen. See Politics you know the kind of protectionist Paul America first politics of the trump administration playing in those certain ways.

"On today's show a deeper look at the defense production act and then some headlines but first the latest if people want to wear a mask That is okay. It protects others more than it protects you because it prevents you from breathing or or speaking mostly on them. Terrible Image speaking voice. That was Canadian. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau with a very evocative description of people spraying it and not saying But in news Senator Bernie Sanders dropped out of the two thousand twenty presidential race leaving former vice president Joe Biden as the presumptive Democratic nominee. Let's begin with some of what Sanders had to say. We have taken on Wall Street. The insurance companies the drug companies the fossil fuel industry the military industrial complex the prison industrial complex and the greed of the entire corporate elite. That struggle continues while this campaign is coming to an end I will. Movement is not yes so for some time. Sanders. Inner Circle was weighing what to do as presidential campaign was in a very weird state of suspended animation given the pandemic and Sanders. Said a number of important things yesterday during his announcement in addition to the the clip. There of saying that the campaign was over but the broader movement was not he also said that he just couldn't justify continuing a campaign that in his words quote cannot win while he and others want to do more work on cove in nineteen in the Senate and otherwise and he said he would remain on the ballot in States. That haven't had primaries yet. Even as he viewed as the nominee the reason why that specifically would be important is it gives people the opportunity to vote for him if they still want to and get the opportunity to and it allows sanders to accrue more delegates and therefore more leverage on the ultimate Democratic Party platform and even though he didn't win sanders is extremely popular with young voters. He won young voters liberal voters in particular states. Latino voters by really wide margins in the primary but he wasn't able to get the level of turnout he needed from those groups and he struggled with many African American voters to. Yeah and you know it goes without saying sanders. Ideas are popular and he shifted the conversation and democratic politics over the past five years. At least you know he galvanized young voters as you mention and inspired politicians like congresswoman Okaz. Yo Cortez to run so when it comes to keeping those ideas alive what are some of the issues. We can expect sanders to try to sway by none. Yeah there are many. I mean looking back on his second run for the White House. Sanders campaigned on Medicare for all the elimination of medical debt and student loan debt. A green new deal moratorium on deportations and many other issue so there still is a ton of daylight between him and Biden and he could have a lot of leverage particularly as the candidates signal now that they want to work together plus looking back on the race which seems like. It was years and years ago that the situation could have turned out quite differently. I mean for some time. It looked like sanders may very well end up being the nominee but now that he has made this decision. Biden has been effusive with praise saying in a lengthy statement on Wednesday quote while the Sanders campaign has been suspended. Its impact on this election and on elections come is far from over and quote but in addition to his legacy of ideas. I have to mention at the start of Passover to Zander's was the most high-profile Jewish presidential candidate and he spoke about losing members of his family in the Holocaust as well as the dignity of Palestinian human rights at my Seder table of virtual. One to be safe you'd be called a mench and he's definitely the only candidate to have also briefly broken up public enemy. I frankly still cannot follow that story from start to finish but I think that's what happened. Yeah I honestly don't think it's over. We're still waiting on another statement from flavor. Flav you know what are these guys has got a just a seal the deal on this and we can move on with our lives. Yeah for sure well. In other news from the day Gideon key take us through some of the other cove in one thousand nine hundred lines playing out in the US. Yeah a few quick things to be aware of their growing concerns about cove in nineteen cases at the Cook County jail in Chicago which could now be the largest known source of infections in the country at the moment with at least three hundred fifty three cases linked to the jail. I it's a very scary situation The New York state alone now has more confirmed cases than any other country in the world. And there's also an important story in the New York Times with some troubling details about the initial response from the city and state government. It's definitely worth checking out in full in relief. Package News House Speaker. Nancy Pelosi said yesterday that the White House's request for two hundred fifty billion dollars in loans for small businesses would not pass the house without more money for hospitals and states among other things and the National Academy of Sciences. Put out a report. Cautioning against the assumption that warm weather would just automatically lead the virus to fade. Yes anding loved to Australia and Africa. They are very hot right now and also still going through nineteen with the rest of us but internationally several major stories To follow happening right now so cove in nineteen has reportedly struck the royal family in Saudi Arabia. And The New York. Times is reporting that some one hundred fifty members of the Royal Family there are believed to have contracted the virus British Prime Minister. Boris Johnson is still in intensive care but stable and responding to treatment for Guven Nineteen. So you know things can change quickly. We're going to keep you posted and the top. Scientists quit after just three months on the job following an hours long meeting with no agreement on economic measures to fight the virus. There's a lot to unpack here. A lot of fighting between bureaucrats but takeaway is that the top science voice in the room in the EU has left so while. That's not everything happening in our new reality it is. What is.

He received permission to ask for her hand in marriage but while he was on his way to propose he encountered a horrifying sight professors pollen Sanni and the enigmatic salesman Coppola were fighting over the stiff form of his beloved Olympia staring into her empty eye. Sockets Netanyahu realized that she was a lifeless man. Made ROBOT SPUN. Sanni was yelling that she belonged to him because he had figured out how to make her work and had solved.

Her brother and her fiance were in a duel to the death. She didn't know how it had come to this Natanya L. had always been so kind and loving that she'd never thought him capable of harming a living thing but there was darkness in him to an old hurt when he was young. The tunnel had been abused by his father's colleague. A man named Capelli's. He was severely traumatized by the experience and blamed Capellas for his father's sudden and violent death. It was all so long ago but recently the past had come back to haunt Natanz. Aol He had become increasingly erratic ranting. Nonsensically that Cappelli US was a puppet master controlling every element of his life. He seemed to believe that. Cappelli us was merely a disguise for the sand man. A character from a children's bedtime story that Netanyahu had recurring nightmares about in his youth. He'd even decided that the Sandman and Capelli ass- were now disguising themselves in the form of optician and seller of scientific instruments named Coppola. Clara had tried to understand. She tried to help no tunnel through his madness but he turned on her with such ferocity. She didn't know what would have happened. If low-fare hadn't intervened and now low-fare and the tonio were going to kill one another as Clara rounded a hedge. She saw them. Netanyahu ill and low fares rape years clashed as they dueled before the garden's small pond. Both men were clearly winded. Their clothing drenched in sweat on some level. Claro was surprised that the fight had lasted this long loath. There was a skilled and disciplined fencer. Netanyahu had never been the athletic type and the sleepless nights and refusal to eat had left him gaunt and week but despite this netanel was winning he fought like an UN caged demon swinging his blade over and over with reckless ferocity. He seemed to have no interest in protecting himself at all and left himself open in myriad ways loath there should have been able to turn this to his advantage at any moment but he seemed so taken aback by. Antonio's rage that it was all he could do to defend himself. One look at Natanz sales wide bloodshot eyes told Clara everything in his mind. He was not fighting her brother. He was facing down every nightmare that had haunted him since he was a child and he was truly fighting for his life please. The single word escaped Clara's lips Netanyahu faltered mid swing and as. He glanced back at her. His face went slack Clara new through the haze of madness. Netanyahu remembered their love. The interruption was all low-fare needed. He gathered his strength and pressed forward in a short burst. Catching the tunnel. By surprise. He swung his sword arm with all his might punching.

It’s dangerous for governments to claim the coronavirus outbreak is under control

"Two weeks ago risk communication experts Peter Sandman and Jody Lenard wrote that quote the most crucial and over do risk communication task for the next few days is to help people visualize their communities when keeping it out containment is no longer relevant we should have gotten that message by now those who closely follow public health like science magazine staff writer John Cohen have known it for a while the story begins on January eighth with the Wall Street journal story that tells us there's a new coronavirus that's when all of the reporters who cover infectious diseases went from there's something happening in China to there's something happening in China and I started communicating with Chinese scientists it became abundantly clear that the Chinese government was not allowing their scientists to speak openly that's not surprising I've reported in China for many years and I've often confronted that reality and I'm relieved that I don't face those obstacles here there has been a mandate to direct everything through the White House that doesn't mean people don't speak to journalists of course they do they just can't do it on the record you can't quote them and they're afraid of saying something that will get them in trouble the stock market tanks trump very clearly was concerned and then you start getting this robotic sort of messaging talking point number one here in Thailand by trump because of all we've done the risk to the American people remains very low and his V. P. the risk of infection to people in this country remains low that's true and then they tell us again and again talking point number two we have great professionals then there's talking point three we're closing the borders talking point for we've got vaccines and treatments in the works here overstating where they are in that pipeline we're getting this messaging of don't panic there's gonna be a vaccine they're gonna be treatments we don't know that we're working on it science is all about going from what's possible to what's probable but people want certainty how has the responsiveness of the government change Brooke you should also know that the national association of science writers put out a statement calling on the trump administration to allow government experts to speak freely you know the CDC made a testing kit that they sent out to public health laboratories when those laboratories started to test drive the kids a bunch of them said they don't work there's a problem with one of the chemical reactions here so I wanted to interview the same person the laboratory scientists and it looks like that was set up and then the timing of this with the pens group taking over I get an email back where the press person answers a couple of my questions but doesn't set up an interview I request again I want to speak to the scientist and they said no nothing in the end I figured it out I spoke to a lot of other people who could explain to me precisely why the CDC test had a problem but I didn't get that from the CDC and it's dangerous terrain I could make a mistake more easily because I'm not speaking to the horse's mouth I have a rule of thumb about being a journalist nobody owes me anything I'm grateful that people share their time with me but come on I work for a publication that's widely respected and widely read around the world don't you want your best person speaking with me to get your message out as accurately as possible it's baffling and it's counterproductive we do have to be concerned about the messaging and about the fear that we create with people that's real I get it but the notion that we got this one don't worry no problem here Hey how many times did trump say nobody's died from this yet and we all knew all of us who covered it we knew that was around the corner everyone who's reading it knew it was around the corner so people aren't simply getting messages from the government we're flooded with all sorts of messages but you know there's a whole debate about can this be contained and the experts I speak to are saying to me again and again look this is something that is gonna spread widely we may well see twenty thirty forty percent of the population it has been infected at some point we should do things to try to slow its spread but can we contain it chase it back into nature the people I speak to who are most in the know thanks Pandora's box has been opened figure out how to live with it if there isn't trust in government pronouncements does this create a situation where people will be prone even more to conspiracy theories also prone to dismissing it you just put your finger on it we have top government officials who were speaking accurately and openly Tony Fauci is a point person he's the head of the National Institute of allergy and infectious diseases Tony is credible Debbie birch yet another person appointed to head the task force with pants Bob Redfield heads the CDC these people of all worked together for years and years and they're credible people there many government voices sometimes saying very different things that's the problem their reaction to that problem is less formal this all down to one person with talking points what's really necessary is for the people in the government who don't know the details to stop telling us things like there will be a vaccine in one year stop it please that's not helpful don't send out messages the conflict with the science what happens if we get these mixed messages what's the ultimate consequence people lose trust in you and then when you really need to do something that you know it's gonna be painful they question it if you have a trusted government saying Hey we've got to shut down our football season the NFL's gonna shut down I mean I'm not saying that's going to happen but what if you have to go there what if you have to up the ante I mean remember what China did it shut down cities fifty million people were quarantined in who they province least could the US government do that probably not both but what if this were killing fifty percent of the people infected maybe we would go to these draconian measures right and you have to trust your government to do that this is serious stuff you know and we are very bad at gauging risk you know we have a law that you have to wear a seatbelt why do we need a law come on we all know seatbelts work but we have a lot because people wouldn't wear them otherwise they wouldn't wear motorcycle homes otherwise our perceptions of risk are screwy you know if you ask a scientist what's the case fatality rate of coronavirus you can get a lecture if you ask what's the range of fatality give you the range the ranges from point seven to eighteen percent to tolerance well what does that even mean what does that even mean we see all these different things and then you try to figure out what what's the average what usually happens if you look at the biggest database China and you look at wolf on the hardest hit place the case fatality rates like five point seven percent but Wuhan was overwhelmed they have they have people being sent away from hospitals waiting in line forever they couldn't diagnose quickly enough if you look outside of Wuhan at the rest of China it drops to point seven percent what that tells me is if you have really good health care you detect your infection early if you're under eighty years old and you don't have underlying heart disease diabetes hypertension your risk of dying is very low yeah it's less than one percent but it could be that were missing four times as many people as we are catching in terms of who's infected let's say just for the sake of argument instead of there being ninety thousand people in the world with confirmed cases today let's say there are a half million that changes completely the percent of people who've died right it goes way down right we probably have a good sense of how many people have died what we don't have a good sense of this how many people have been infected and that's how you calculate the case fatality rates so people who aren't scientists they get dizzy from all this broke they they do they like what just tell me the answer and unfortunately science rarely can give you a certain answer about things I can tell you there is an existing flu vaccine I'm certain about that and I'm certain that it offers about fifty percent protection this year I'm certain that if you get it you're lowering your risk of flu and going to make it easier to determine whether you have cove at nineteen I'm certain of those things what I'm not certain about it but you're gonna get affected by flu or were they gonna get infected by code nineteen and what's gonna happen to you I

That stay awake past their bedtime. The character of the sand man first appears in German French Dictionary. From seventeen seventy one. He's alluded to in a single phrase. The sand man comes this vague eerie. Idiom was used to say that a person looked so tired that they were about to fall asleep over the years. This phrase evolved into a folk tale character of shifting description. Some stories depict him as a friendly old man in pajamas. Who Uses magical sad to help children sleep and to give them good dreams when they wake up and find sand in the corners of their eyes. They know they were visited by the Sandman other versions depict him as a marvelous storyteller weaving strange and fabulous tales to lead children into peaceful slumber. But not all versions of this. Lord of dreams have been quite so friendly in eighteen sixteen German author e t a Hoffmann published his short story the Sandman as part of a collection titled The Night Pieces. It's a twisted macabre tale populated by strange machines mad. Scientists and wounded heroes and added center is Sandman himself this time. Not a friendly bearded old man but a nightmare in his own right. It begins with a child on the verge of adolescence. Lost in the chasm between reality and.

"Nine year old. Natanz L. should have been asleep by now. His mother had warned him. His sister's nursemaid had warned him but it was too late. The San man was already on his way. Netanyahu pulled the covers over his head. Maybe if you pretended while it off the Sandman would leave him be. All he had to do was steady. His breathing stay very still and keep his eyes closed. His heartbeat pounded in his ears. As the door slowly opened the tunnel listened as the footsteps circled his bed. They paused at his feet a moment later. Netanyahu heard the footsteps slowly move back toward the door. It's working. He thought hands shaking in suspense. Then the door slowly closed. Netanel couldn't believe his luck. He had tricked the Sandman ever so cautiously. He lowered the corner of his blanket and peered out toward his bedroom door. The Tony L. screamed as sand flew into his eyes. He frantically rubbed at his face trying to clear the rough debris from his vision before he could run. The SANDMAN man grabbed Natanz. Al and held him down with a sinister chuckle.

Hellboy talk with Tim

"Are seeing more of change. I think in response to books like Hell Boyer Black Hammer. Where because there is a firm time line and things are happening characters have to react to the things that are happening even if they don't have full context for what's happening so that's what you like about hell boy be. Pr General. Think helpful like you said Houston's Gone Yeah Houston's gone what are you GonNa do hell boy died? What are we going to do? And that's another thing stopped me please. If I'm going off the rails in the world of hell boy. Bpd WHAT HAVE YOU? Death is final unless it isn't and what I mean by that is when like okay but speculate for just a second over. I'm going to spoil recent events in Batman that's okay. I'll put spoiler at the beginning. The Alfred was killed by Bain in Batman a couple months ago Alfred. Dying is a huge deal. It's a very good story. I'll be really hard pressed to say in five years. We're not going to have comics with Alfred. M I think we'll see Alfred Comeback in the hell boy world if there was a a character analogous to Alfred. If he died he'd be dead. There's only been three characters I can think of who haven't stayed dead One of them is Huma Hunky list which is hard work as say I can read it forever. A monkey lists named Roger. Who's liveability is questionable? At best the other two and I could be wrong as well like I'm not concrete giving you information but This based off the best of my recollection the the other two characters would be Rasputin. Who is the main villain and Hell boy himself and when hell boy is brought back it's not his choice. There was There was a thing that I want to say. Scott Allie who was an editor and a writer on BP said is If he said death is final and things will break and if things are repaired they will still remain broken. So if you like break glass table you can put that glass table back together. It's not going to be as strong as it was. And that's kind of a tenant and B P R D if we're gonNA break it we can put it back together but it's not gonna be the same as a storyteller in a fan of of character the way hell boy and it's related books handle stakes is so it's so unlike anything else you're gonNA find in modern pop culture and he loves. Mike loves the supernatural world. Because I hadn't read hell boy before but I read Joe Gholam which is one of my aches works and it has a very supernatural tinder taste to it for lack of a better word but he really loves that supernatural world when I was reading up about how he came up with hell boy and the Supernatural. In general he started. Reading Brahms stroker's Dracula and just got sucked into the all. The supernatural world and missed. Go along with that and even see that. In Gotham by gaslight. Yeah I think that's where he got a lot of this inspiration because like you said. Eprdf just kind of a supernatural monster story arc on each in how he tries to solve this mystery so to speak. But I really like those like you said the BP because they're short. In general. At least the ones I read are fairly short. They're kind of wins a call because they take place in the past share. Well it's it's interesting because Mike men ULA has trusted so many people with his world. Geoff Johns has written for PR. D- we've got Chris. Roberson does a lot of stuff Scott. Allie Gabriel Bah and Fabio Moon. Who ARE TWINS? They've done some work on a book called. B P R D vampire. Let's just phenomenal. It's so good Abe Sapien had his own series for awhile and there were another set of twins that were working on the art in that and their names escape me off hand but pitch perfect. They're wonderful the those twin they're now working on Lucifer for DC like the the Black Label Sandman books but It's just so good There's a horror comic called Herro county that's written by. Cullen Bunn the art and that is done by Tyler Crook and there was a tiny little bit of animosity because Tyler Crook was the second main artists on E. P. R. D. And when he went over to do Harrow County kind of left He left the crew in a bit of a bind and everybody was a little upset but also he's doing the work of his career on. Harrow. County That's how we got Lawrence Campbell as the main artist on be prd through throughout the run of like hell boy traditionally the art in that is either Mike Minneola or Mike. Minneola esque yes. There's a there's a very good so pretty still pretty rough so to speak but it I think it fits in his universe. Yeah it absolutely does. If we're not getting Mike Manolo. We're getting somebody like Dunkin for Griego who has a very manolas style over. Mvp what we got was a completely different visual. Take and we had guy. Davis was the main artist for play frogs. Hell on earth. We saw Tyler Crook and then going into the devil you know we had Lawrence Campbell. And they bright. They brought a very interesting like real world. Visual take on what Mike Minneola drew as more than esoteric stylized monster world and just like injected it with like this fierce ground level realistic take in it so to to see how Lake Dunkin for draws Abe sapien versus how Mike Minneola draws EP and versus. How Tyler Crook Draws Abe sapien versus? It's so it should not narrative Lee speaking work. It shouldn't do it Michael did a whole issue of of that. We have a painted issues that are done by just masters of their art. And it's it's so wonderful and and just the fact that you can have these visual styles who divorced from divorce from the words divorce from the writing you would never know that just because this character looks a little more cheesy in. This character. Looks a little more realistic. There is no. There's no what if in the hell boy universe whenever you read a story As far as the comics the short stories are a little different. There's pros and all that but we're talking about the comics there's not Lak- what if Abe Sapien was fighting in World War. Two like it's there's none of that every everything you read actually happens To those characters in the world of hell boy and having such unique creative voices all working in tandem to tell this one epic it should not by any right work and if it does work it should not work nearly as well as this does and it is so much fun it does. It's a fun a fun book. Speaking of you talked about Abe Sapien. What is your favorite character from hell boy? Do you bomb or is it a cop out answer cop out answer and then maybe might cop out. Answer is Every every major comic book company I believe has a trinity of some kind so. Dc Has Batman. Wonder Woman Superman Marvel's got Captain America. Thor and iron man You could argue. That image has spawned in which blade and someone else that I can't think of offhand For Hell boy it's definitely you've got an expansive universe of characters but it comes down to Abe Liz in hell boy and if I get one of those three I'm going to have a good time and be in for completely different reasons there so three very different characters In the in the Gemmell del Toro movies. They had a romance between. Liz and hell boy does not exist in the comics. That's not a thing If anything Liz and Abe kind of have an unspoken thing that nobody ever acts on and that's kind of cool because you've got fire and water and that's like a neat neat thing like that. Yeah it's really fun. But if you were like gun to my head me pick a character man. It's GonNa be a tie between it's GonNa be a tie between Captain Daimyo from be PRD. Who is in the newest? Hell boy movie. He's the the wear Jaguar. I love him or Johann Johann Krauss whose an echo plasma ghost in a in a sealed suit don't make can't choose between those two a close honorable mention would be roger but I can live without roger it's fine but But no I love and that goes to the military guy in me I love. Diageo is a traditional military guy and he is just he's hired basically to militarize the PRD and get them to work as a cohesive unit and he just comes in and he's like all right. Look I'm done I'm done like I cannot handle. Whatever it is you guys are doing. I need you all. Just cut your drama. And let's do this. And he just has no time for any of the. He's he's not ignorant to the fact that he's working with monsters he's he gets to the point where he's like. I don't care that you're monsters. We have work to do. And I absolutely love that. And then Johann who was voiced by Seth McFarland and the second held boy movie the The Golden Army In the comics he is so flawed that he is. He's the most fun to read. Because you you just like him you just like him and he makes some really dumb stupid mistakes but they're mistakes that you could see yourself making and you see some emphasis me speaking of myself when I say you but I see so much of myself in him that when he makes a mistake. I'm like own own. No real world content is one hundred percent what I would do and we would all be in so much trouble So I absolutely adore the dichotomy of those two and they don't get a wall but No it's my it's A. It's a complete cop-out I answered it twice with no actual answer. That's okay. I like the fact that like you said it is kind of whimsical. Boys Got A. Would you say it dry sense of humor? I would say Ri- I think is is not so much dry it's like. He knows he knows what he's just so he's just kind of he's perpetually forty and he could you imagine being being against. I'm in my late thirties. Man If you just I would be unstoppable if I had energy and I see hell boy as just perpetually old enough to know better young enough to not care and he kind of can get away with

"Shoukri sure they ever wanted to do in my life. You know what I mean so much like. I don't watch maybe more but whenever I go to whatever go with building I I love sitting there and watching all the batch. I'm never really in the locker room of more or less I. I'll just say my table a lot of times. I'll just watch him for their. You know what I mean but I just just TV and stuff like that. I haven't watched it in so John. Let me ask you this. You said that you know you think inter-gender thing Matches you enjoy them. You think that's GonNa become something more prevalent in the future richer. If if the right woman opponent was standing across from you would you work with a woman the second are you kidding me. I mean I'm horrible dude. You know what's crazy you say. W. was like I figured there was a new start and so I actually did sort so to watch it for a couple of weeks when they were doing the tag tournament. Watch a little bit and X and X to everybody Birdie came work there but so a fountain grew or guy. It's like crazy this scene in tag matches in the Awa like Oh my God. This is so they should all. We're me you know what I mean. I just figured out without having you gotTa lucky suit. Yeah I did I really did. I got very very first which didn't timing. Well Sam. I appreciate you coming on. Appreciate you talking about what happened and like like you said you're being honest and truthful you did say it. You said it to tie who is in the main event and you also said you haven't really watched and bully. I think you made a good statement the fact that like. Hey things have changed over the last few years this. This world of pro wrestling is progressing very fast and salmon. We appreciate you hopping on the show for a few. You guys say she's so much have a great day all right. Thanks so much love you made love your brother take care all right salmon. Listen I mean he said it he said at the Tyra who was in the main event so I mean there is some truth to what was said and he actually said maybe she popped in last-second. I mean anything is possible but you know. He admitted that he hasn't been watching. And listening in this world that pro wrestling man. It's changed a lot the last few years bullying and if you really break it down and you listen to what he said it sounds like he was saying saying he did not think wrestling fans were ready for it. It wasn't like he was saying he doesn't think they should being the main event and my my point here I think what he said is absolutely what you just said he said. I don't think fans are ready for this yet. And that's that's that's the ignorance on this on his part because it is because he's not educated on the fans are ready for it because if they weren't it wouldn't have been the main event at Wrestlemania Selena thirty-five show. Do you think Joran grace blue. This out of proportion on social media I think Jordan. I think there's some there's some truth to that but at the same time I I have to say you know what if I'm Jordan grace. I'm probably upset at some of those comments. Because here you are. You're getting ready. You're in the locker room getting ready for a match right. You're in the main event and somebody says I don't think the fans are ready for this yet. It's kind of like if if I'm joining grace and I hear that and I'm GonNa. I'm GonNa guessed that she did. I'm not gonNA say she lied. I'm GonNa especially when he did say it and he said it to tie. WHO's in the main event? I Bet Jordan grace was nearby nearby inherited. But don't you think you would be a better or more accurate assessment. The situation if she would have said I overheard as opposed to saying this guy came up to four girls. Yeah because obviously by his account I mean he's not. He said he went up to one girl. One girl that was in in the main event not the four of them because think about it he would have had to walk up to four girls and go. I don't think fans are ready for any of you. Girls to be in the main event that it sounds very very very harsh. I want according to him. That's not what happened. But you know what I think at some point. We should get Jordan Grayson. I would like to get I. I would like to get her side of the story because we salmon did admit that he said and he said it to tie who is in the main event. So I'm Mitch. I would love to get get her on to get her side at some. It's not like he was backtracking. He wasn't backpedaling. He said this is what I said. But his story doesn't match up to her all right or or our story doesn't match up to him but at the end of the day he said it and I think he needs to be more educated about what's going on and I think he's willing to do.

so this often thinking what Nineteen Thirties WanNa say ninety one before that yeah it is it's you in six nineteen sixteen England and so on doc was reading this first issue and I was just confused because it it has an old guy talking to cultivate and being reminded of Oscar Crowley you want to say that the guy's name the cultures that was I think he might have been later but it reminded me of that and it kind of talks about different horse different light this deity that they're trying to get the cultists are having ceremony in the basement of course they're all wearing robes of course and they're trying to get DT of because they're dumb asses so off gun plan I and if you're trying to catch a god or seeing you you might have more industrial but hey it worked but also I would you want to get the guy out of debt like to me it just seems or the whatever the hell this thing is just getting a little crazy yeah and they they screwed up to because it's kind of like cooking I think that they can replace like garlic salt with Basil and it'll still be a fine combination what happened basically yeah yeah they try to summon death and they tried to capture it because they wanna be immortal forever but they accidentally don't catch death which is like a lady they catch brother which is the Sandman and he kind of abuse and they they have like a little circle where he can't exit because of the spell that is cast around it so when they summoned him he's trapped in that bubble and strip him of his helmet they strip necklaces jewelry and then of his clothing so he's basically naked any super pale long black hair he kind of looks like the Crow Yeah Yeah Helmet a helmet just makes me just did not understand that omit Kinda looks something for Malians like it it it looks very messed up gas and I was just like what the hell is this like I mean this character comes out has a ruby necklace around his neck beg bag of saying well San I didn't know what the hell it was weird mass looks like an alien wearing a gas mass going under yep but they they use a book that's the main guy has name is Burgess I think and it's given to him by a guy named Jonathan Hitchcock or something and he wants to bring his son back from the dead and he thinks that Burgess summoning death and giving them immortality is going to be able to do that the problem is when they get the San man a hitchcock or whatever his name is he realizes that Burgess has just completely fricken evil and he not only can't fulfill his promise but that he's using all of their money to keep this will thing going because they're kind of like like a super colts that's being funded by the rich of the time the also put him in a giant glass ball right I remember it correctly yeah also strange in anything goes on as I think it goes on for a few years well it overall what he's in this ball I know it goes on for years but early on one of the people who helped him get the guy betrays him and runs away the three artifacts of the Sandman the mask the sandbag and the jewel and I want to say that it's nineteen twenties nineteen thirty sorry right so it kind of shows you how he's been you know as time goes on and getting older getting crazier has no longer evil evil professor in this and the whole time the San is just sitting there like I'm just GonNa wait until I can get out of here he doesn't say a single word to any of them so they through the years you just see them like controlling him saying they're going to do this and that too if he doesn't give them what they want and he just stands there stares at him and says absolutely nothing and the guy who ran off with the artifacts he he gets betrayed I think or no they have a victory yeah and the girl leaves and she takes to the artifacts I think one of them for sure now I don't remember that I'm looking at it right now look sold the helmet to somebody in he saw you too easy amulet amulet protects them and then when when his wife leaves she takes the amulet or wherever she has and that's what enemy dying of the animals keeping him safe right because what happens is when Burgess finds out of the trail they start having this very small magic war across the globe where they're trying to cast spells on each other but the guy who ran off with a because he gave the helmet to the demon and he has the amulet he's able to ward off the spells until he loses it and then he's basically early slaughtered it's a really gory picture to Oh yeah the other panels and show it goes in one thousand nine hundred yes go ahead okay it shows nineteen forty seven and it shows the old man and I didn't catch this until I read the comic I didn't really he's standing right at the edge of the circle circle painted on that we're talking about it not doesn't even want to stay on the ground like don't touch the ground but he and he's standing there crying stain how you know he should help them in that he won't he never gonNa let them go and then the old man dies in throughout this issue there are showing there's all these people who can't wake up with Mike Sleep Coma for years right as the San Man with today known hungry notice hand man now okay but the DVD a trap it just stuck in there and he's helped people sleep I guess so right so there's like a one of the sad stories that came out of that is I forget her name now but there's a girl eight year old girl who goes to sleep and she wakes up and then when she goes back to sleep she sleeps longer than she did previous sleep so she's starting to sleep longer and longer and longer and eventually she's in asleep in coma to where later on we find out that not only was she in the coma but she had a child and then she starts dreaming of this child that she had which is super sad and kind of us yeah but all these things are happening across the below and the Sandman because he's trapped in the circle he I can't help them dream and wake up or go back to sleep because there's also a soldier who can't go to sleep who takes his life because he's just going insane being awake for a year which I don't even know how that's possible physically think there's also one that's like just endlessly like sleepwalking like just stuck in like a Zombie state that's right yeah I'm speaking mostly blocked through his world and the the old man who has dream in the circle when he's going away and his wheelchair is like take me back up to wherever he's going better whatever the we chairs slides over the circle and breaks the spell so now all all the Sandman has to do is escape the bubble and he starts to fake like he's playing ed so that they come down and the guards are like well that's never happened before he's never done that and they opened the door and as soon as they opened the door he blows sand in all their faces is and what happens to them as they go into endless sleep is what it's called dream with sleep endless sleep and basically what it is as they continuously are caught in dreams so when they wake up they think they're out of the dream but they're just an another eternal waking I think it's called old eternal waking that's what it is yeah and it's kind of fucked up but it seems horrifying just every time you think you're when you wake up out of that nightmare then you're back in session and basically also the astle you had mentioned that they had guards around this bubble twenty four seven for like fifty sixty years our long you're more than maybe to pay people to sit here and watch making Ma'am I do like to escape being just keeping through their dreams he blows the sand on it is to at some point that the time he spent in their his time to him is the same as time to humans so he says seventy years imagine how long that was that's a human's life and it went at a snail's pace and he's and he's talking to the grandson or the son of the guy who imprisoned mm-hmm yeah he goes to the guy who's old now is sleeping son is all but also like we were talking about with that people start to wake up like the Sleep Walker finally stop sleepwalking the girl who's been in a coma all this time wakes up and it's a.

KCRW's Hollywood Breakdown

Will HBO Max work and will consumers pay?

"I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as bounty of the Hollywood reporter and Matt. We've known that this industry is disrupted and Warner brothers and Warner media. Its parent are sort of the ultimate case study. You're right now of what is going on. Warner Brothers was the premier studio in this industry for so many years and being the chairman of Warner Brothers was the biggest deal imaginable and they have now announced that an Sarnoff who who comes from the B._B._C. America America and has really good experience and is very well regarded but is completely almost completely unknown in Hollywood is going to be the chairman of Warner brothers and at the same time the Warner media is announcing in the launch of this H._B._O.. Oh Max which is the streaming service that they have been building toward and they are pulling programming from all over the place to service this thing. This is a huge priority. So first of all your people were going to have to look at that they do. I need this will this H._B._O.. Max Idea Work and at the same time within the industry. There's a question of well gee. What does this mean for Warner Brothers? I mean is Warner. Brothers now going to be subservient to the streaming service and does being chairman of Warner Brothers really have any kind of clout and prestige or are you just going to be taking orders effectively from Bob Greene Blah who runs the streaming service as well as these other cable channels and H._B._O.. He reports to <hes> John Stanky the. Head of Warner media as does and Sarnoff but it's not so clear what it all means in terms of who has power this really does represent a sign of the Times entertainment because when A._T.. And T. bought the Time Warner assets it was very clear that the crown on jewel was not warner brothers. It was H._B._O.. Because they could leverage H._B._O.. To create a global streaming service that will hopefully in their words compete with net flix and that's what every conglomerate is trying to do right now. They're trying to leverage with their assets are create new stuff and go head to head with Netflix so you're seeing warner media pullback a lot of the content that was out there most notably friends which has been streaming on Netflix is now going. Going to switch over to this new H._B._O.. Max they're gonNA start doing with a bunch of other shows on the C._W.. On Turner on the Turner Networks Like T._N._T.. And T._B._S. Some C._N._N.. Content this is all going to be funneled into this H._B._O.. Bill mack streaming service will be pitched as an add on to H._B._O.. Or as its own thing a little bit more expensive than the traditional H._B._O.. Costs currently and that's where we're at right now because comcast is doing the same thing with the N._B._C.. Universal shows like the office just pulling it away from net flicks doing their own thing. Disney is launching their own thing. We're going to get into a very stratified ecosystem where the streaming services are tops and the contents suppliers are going to be the studios that they own and. Hopefully others they think I mean has made a Fortune Selling T._v.. Shows the T._v.. Division has been lead you know Big Bang theory two and a half men all of these shows in different networks very profitably and enjoying all of the reaping all of the rewards that followed followed and they just sold a huge project to Netflix Sandman so they're still looking to get that cash coming in the door obviously the I don't even know how you sort it out and I think more importantly people in the industry. I don't know how you sort it out if I'm making a T._v.. Show and Warner Brothers is making that show at what goes to H._B._O.. Max what goes somewhere else. What do I sell to C._B._S.? A._B._C. or or Hulu or whatever so I think it's it's almost like this dizzying situation within the industry of figuring. Bring out who is going to emerge victorious and how these things are going to be sorted and that's that's a potential big change for Warner Brothers which as you mentioned has been this people say there are the arms dealer of Hollywood in the sense that they have sold everybody but if you look at what Disney is doing Disney is very purposefully holding back a lot of their stuff and they are trying to create an ecosystem around this new Disney plus streaming service that will be the one stop shop for Disney. Now Disney has a very strong consumer rebrand and people know Disney and they want Disney oriented content. It's not quite the same for Warner Brothers. They don't have that brand name they just you wouldn't the average person on the street wouldn't even know that one brothers produced two and a half men yet. It's probably the biggest revenue generator that the company has so I just I think it'd be very interesting to see how warner's approaches this ecosystem and who they sell to and who they don't and from the consumer standpoint of course the question is how much does this cost they said it will.

G. Willow Wilson Creator of Kamala Khan

"This episode g willow Wilson, she's a comic book author, and she wrote the first marvel comic with a young Muslim woman as the hero, Kamla, Han aka MS marvel. So when I was in high school, I was kind of a giant Goth. I was the kind of insufferable kid who, who would say that they were not actually cost the Gosper, too pretentious, and that I was above that of. But Nevertheless, I wore the really dark lipstick and like the fish nuts, and the pseudo Victorian jackets, that you could find like buffalo exchange. Yeah. I mean, if you looked up Goss in the dictionary, you would have found a photo of me somewhere. Fortunately, for me around the same time, sort of the late eighties early nineties, this British wave of very literary experimental comics started coming out. And I ran Pedley became obsessed, and one of my absolute favorite series, as was the case for a lot of people was Sandman by Neil Gaiman. Which took a World War, Two era, kind of be list, super hero and turned him into this mythological dream king who goes on adventures with all kinds of different, mythical creatures and kind of deconstructs, western mythology from a really interesting point of view. So, you know, for me as like a fourteen year old fifteen year old mega Goth this was huge and revelatory. Not just the story itself, but the medium of comics. Sandman told a kind of story in comic book form that I didn't really know was possible. It was kind of my first exposure to these more literary more adult kinds of comics, when I was a kid comics were still considered very much a kids, medium, and particularly a boys medium. There were not things that were marketed at girls. There were very few books out there that were adjacent to the superhero world that were marketed to adults so to see a comic book that was very clear and open in its love for that classics Hooper hero story. And yet, at the same time talked about Shakespeare and Chaucer and you know, brought in a very Joseph Cambell kind of U of mythology. Just expanded my understanding of what could be done within the pages of a comic book. I want to take a quick break to tell you about another podcast. I worked on it's called the big one your survival guide. We walk you through what it would be, like, if a major earthquake hit Los Angeles, and we help you understand what you need to know, to survive science and journalism, and immerses you and the experience of being in a huge earthquake. Don't be scared. We help you prepare. You can find it today wherever you listen to this show. Okay. Back to tell them. I am. So as I remember, the first time I found Neil, Gaiman Sandman, I was at the apartment of a friend. Who is I think about two years older than me and had graduated. And they were already living on their own. And so we're, we're very kind of cool and grown up in my eyes. You know, the, the people who live, there had also been giant Goths. So there were clove cigarettes, which were still legal at the time sitting around, and, ashtrays, and that's kind of always what it smelled, like, which I like the smell of. But it had that kind of late nineties, Goth aesthetic, every all the windows were kind of draped in, like, JoAnn fabric in sort of dark colors. It was it was just that kind of place. This apartment had a collective library of all kinds of great stuff, and they were all reading Sandman, and they had they'd just sort of made a rule, you can read whatever you want, but don't take anything out of the apartment. But because their library was so big. I was like, nobody will notice if I just kind of sneaked these back issues out and read them on my own, so I did. And. It was one of those reading experiences that, that kind of sticks out in your mind as being something for which there is a before. And an after he read this book. It made me feel a lot less grubby as a Goth it, oh, it was a very unabashedly Goth comic. And it was kind of cool to see something with such a huge cultural impact that was kind of headlined by this very Goth guy with white makeup, an extremely scruffy kind of Robert Smith, secure hair, and it was kind of a nice affirmation that you could do the stuff. And it you'd be kind of like a mopey teenager. And yet have cool stories that meant something, and that we're all to uplifting, and we're about hope. So, you know, it was in, in that sense. Nice to see Goths doing some kind of artistic service for, for the whiter were. The kind of storyteller that he was was very influential, and then as I got a little bit older. And I I saw him a couple of times back. This is back when he used to tour. I was also very impressed with the way that he approached writing and being a writer and it being a human being. There was one instance, in which I saw him along with a bunch of other really amazing comic book writers, including, I think Peter David, at MIT just a few days, not more than a week after nine eleven. Nine eleven happened just a couple of weeks after my nineteenth birthday at the beginning of my junior year of college. And he you know, I was I was very much a college student, I was kind of going through a late adolescent. What does it all mean phase, I become interested in, in religion and started to sort of rethink what I assumed about life, and purpose and are, are sort of our place in the universe. And like everybody, I think it was it was a tremendous shock. I think particularly people of my vintage kind of elderly millennials or Xeni, all's had never known a time when the US felt really threatened. The Cold War was kind of over, there was a sense that we were separate from the rest of the world or that nothing could ever interrupt. That period of prosperity into which we had been born and so nine eleven just massively shook the foundations of our generational experience and especially being in Boston at Boston University, the feeling of ongoing threat and vulnerability was quite high. Two of the planes had taken off from Logan airport. There are all kinds of rumors circulating that, there were still a terrorist cells in the city. And so it really did feel like a war zone in many ways, and it occurred to me, just sort of walking to class that this is the reality that so much of the rest of the world faces every single day. And somehow we have managed to avoid it for this long. And now here we are just like the rest of the world. as we did for a lot of things during those weeks after nine eleven we kind of hung around to see if this event was actually going to happen because a lot of them were cancelled. And it was clear that, yes, it was going to happen. It was still going on. So we, you know, we decided okay, well, we're not we're not going to give up this, this chance to see all of these amazing authors and artists on stage at the same time. And we decided yeah, we're going to go. We're going to we're going to do it, despite the sort of aura of anxiety and dread. That was kind of hanging over everything. What was interesting to me is the Neil Gaiman was the only one in his kind of opening words who never mentioned nine eleven once everybody on stage when they got up to talk that was what they talked about. It was it was about superheroes in nine eleven. You know, I think one of the people on stage envisioned this world in which wolverine was on the plane with the terrorists, and sort of got up and, and hit them with his finger spikes. And it kind of rubbed me the wrong way because I remember thinking, you know, this is not the time to pretend that are fictional heroes are gonna do us any kind of good. It's too real. It's a nice thought that yes. If we had these amazing heroes who were always in the right place at the right time that they would have saved us, but they didn't. And Neil Gaiman got up and never mentioned nine eleven once he just sort of told a story, I don't even remember what it was that he talked about. But by the end of it for about thirty seconds. We all forgot and in a weird way, I think that prepared us to have them were serious conversation versus the. Yeah. Wolverine would I've got him if you'd have been there, which, which just felt very tried to me. The reason that that stood out to me was because it illustrated, very neatly that for a storyteller in a time of great national tragedy upheaval. The way forward is not always the way through that sometimes we assume we're in a position to attack things head on. And yes, we're gonna fight, whatever it is or or get through whatever it is. And it's, it's very easy to blur the line at that point between storytelling and, and just sort of shallow saber rattling. But what he said at that time illustrated to me that it was possible to speak in a deeper key and not to pretend that you have the answers that you need all the answers. You know, everybody was was in an incredibly tense somber. Reflective mood, and it I think brought a lot of us especially who are about my age. I was eighteen at the time into the realization that we are all mortal that, that, that nothing that we think, is a turtle is eternal, and that the world may be didn't look the way that we had been taught growing up,

Hey, rain stuff. Lauren Bogle bomb here. You know, when you wake up in the morning, and you have all that crusty stuff in your eyes that's called room. And it's just the remnants of liquid coating that protects your is that you blink away when you're awake. But that collects end dries when you sleep, but if you were a child living in central or northern Europe, a couple of centuries ago grownups would have probably told you that when you woke up in the morning with crusty eyelashes, it was because the Sandman had been to your bedside sprinkling his magical sleepy Dustin, your is spinning the yarns of your dreams, this might have caused you some alarm because the figure of the Sandman isn't all magical benevolent snooze dust. It turns out as much as the Sandman is to sleep as Santa is to gift-giving San man's shadow side is at least as conspicuous as Santa's penchant for shady around the clock surveillance and distribution of switches and coal to naughty kids. We spoke about how the Sanmen myths got their start with Dr Maria. Tatar a professor of German studies folklore and children's literature at Harvard University. She said it's a bit difficult to trace his origins because stories about the Sandman are part of an oral tradition. I feel confident that there are similar figures and other cultures because so many of the jolly child-friendly creatures are shadowed by disciplinary evil person who invented the Sandman who knows the man's first Paret onto the page was an eighteenth century German dictionaries, which briefly described the German idiom zap man, kommt Sandman is coming which was used to tease children who were particularly sleepy. Looking. The first story about Sandman and his doings was published in eighteen eighteen by German writer, E T, a Huffman descent men begins with an exasperated nurse telling a story about a mythical creature who throws sand in the eyes of little children who won't go to sleep causing. There is to fall out of their sockets Sanmen. Then collects the eyeballs and a sack and carries them to his home on the dark side of the moon where he feeds them. Mm to his children to tar said present men became an important story in psychoanalytic circles because Freud made so much of it in his essay, the uncanny often story is a fairy tale for grownups really his Sandman is this dark predatory monster. It definitely wasn't written for children, but keep in mind. Many of the things we consider kids stories today. Snow White sleeping beauty were originally told by and to adults though, of course, not all fairy were for grownups in eighteen forty one Hans Christian Andersen. Published a fairytale meant for a young audience called all loci ole being a Danish first name and loci translating to shut your I the pomace character always dressed in silk pyjamas and carrying a colorful umbrella is never referred to by Anderson as the San man, but the man is the title most English translations assigned to the fairytale ole doesn't throw sand into children's is. He squirts milk into them. The story is a sequence of dream. Like Tableau and ole seems to be a benevolent figure in them. But he does introduce the main character a young boy to concepts of sexuality and death. And at the end of the story, the boy discovers that old loci has a brother who instead of coming night after night tour bedsides begin dreams only visits each person wants bringing death. His name is also all loci Tatar said what's interesting about the Sandman stories is they remind me a bit of the children's versus and lullabies. We seem to children which are soothing in gentle. But there's a stark violent side to them to somehow it seems to meet her are bits towards children. We adore them. And want to tell them gentle lovely stories, but they drive us crazy at times we and especially our ancestors resorted to cautionary and disciplinary tales like little red riding hood in which the wolf will eat you up. If you stray from the path in the Hoffman story, if you don't go to sleep the sand man's going to come and scratch out your eyes, and if strong arming children in to set. Alling down to sleep is not why the European parents have nurses of old told cautionary bedtime stories. Maybe it's because they wanted to prepare their little ones for life's hardships to tar said the unusual thing about the Sandman is he's a lot bigger than you. Are there's no defeating him. You can't face him down. Like, you can the villains fairy tales, there's no happily ever after except falling asleep giving in he can't be beheaded are trapped or tricked like other villains. It's hard to distinguish fairy tale myth legend and all of that. But in a way, he belongs more to the realm of myth and very towns.

"Get I got if I take it back. That's what most Republicans would do. They would K if in the face of this heat from the drive by media. But Nick Sandman as far as standing there. I had every right to do. So. My position is I was not disrespectful of Mr. Phillips. I respect him. I'd like to talk to him. I wish we don't walk away because who wants to be in this kind of embroil, but I have nothing to apologize for. What is this question? You feel experience you owe anybody that's the question you ask before you. Learn the truth of this news Guthrie. All right. What's next is the question on the questions that I think the question from savannah Guthrie? Do you think it was a good idea to stay chanting back at the protest? They weren't chanting back. You know what they did? They did their school cheer every getting in on the site. Geist the spirit of the times. So the Indians out there. Banging the war drama and doing his chant the Congressional Black Israelites they over there shouting, their profane. Invectives the kids said, hey, let's get it on this. Do you think it was a good idea? So she is hell bent on still portraying these kids as the provocateurs, and here is what nNcholas Sandman said in reply and hindsight, I wish we just found another spot to wait for buses, but at the time being positive seemed better than letting them slander us with all these things. So I wish we could have walked away. Did anyone shout any insults back any racial slurs back at the group? What is that? It's not tolerated. They don't tolerate racism, and none of my classmates are racist. People. I can't believe this. All right. Good idea giving back anything to try to make sure somebody anybody sees the kids is guilty. Then he has another great answer. I wish we had found another spot to wait for the buses who wants to be part of this circus. But at the time being positive seemed better than letting them slander us with all of these things. In other words, why should we have to sit there and being an take being insulted verbally the way we were. And then her next question. Did anyone? Shout insults back.

"Want. I didn't mean it'd be wearing the gal by got if I could take it back. Oh, that's what most Republicans would do. They would cave in the face of this heat from the drive by media. But Nick Sandman as far as standing there. I had every right to do. So. My position is I was not disrespectful of Mr. Phillips. I respect him. I'd like to talk to him. I wish we know walked away because who wants to be in this kind of imbroglio, but I have nothing to apologize. What is this question? You feel experience you owe anybody that's the question you ask before you. Learn the truth of this, MS Guthrie. All right. What's next is the question on the the question? Not an I think the question from savannah Guthrie. Do you think it was a good idea? Chanting back at the protest. They weren't chanting back. You know what they did? They did their school cheer ever getting in on the zeitgeist the spirit of the times. So the Indians out there. Banging the war drama and doing his chant. The Congressional Black Israelites went over there shouting, their profane. Invectives the kids said, hey, let's get in on this. Do you think it was a good idea?

Everyone is still wrong about the Covington kids

"Classes over at Covington high school because of death threats because of bomb threats. No, I am not kidding. They've now had to cancel school today, and they had to cancel their basketball game which was scheduled for the next couple of days because of all the violent threats that are being made over a completely falsified video that the media pushed forward so the media over the weekend push for this videos. You'll recall from yesterday show, they push forward a video suggesting that Covington high school students surrounded an elderly native American Vietnam. Veteran and then began berating him yelling at him obstructing him. And all the rest turns out that was all ally. It was not true. The further video shows what happened is that. There were a bunch of black Hebrew Israelites cult members who were yelling, racial, sexual orientation slurs at the students, the students did not respond except by chanting their school chance at which point Nathan Phillips, this elderly native, American gentlemen, he decided to saunter into the middle of the high school students with some of his buddies pounding a drum and getting in the faces of some of the students the students did not react to that. And for this. The students were castigated they're now receiving death threats. There is eating bomb threats. They have been doc st-. I mean, I've spoken to a bunch of the students at this point. These are from my impression. Good solid kids. I see no evidence that they are racist. I see no evidence that they did anything egregious or wrong. And you're seeing commentary from folks on the left suggesting that one kid in particular, Nick Sandman, who's the one who you see in the video standing face to face with the native American guy that he was doing something wrong by smiling. So now a white guy smiling is race. Cest? That's how far we have come. So Martin Luther King day yesterday. People were talking about how a white kid smiling was racist. Because he happened to be wearing a maga- hat. You think maybe we've gone too far in this country in terms of polarizing people by way of race. It's pretty astonishing. We'll President Trump did the right thing yesterday. He tweeted out about Covington Catholic, he was he was watching Tucker Carlson show. Tucker did a great job of covering this issue last night on Fox News. And Trump tweeted out looking like, Nick Sanmen and Covington Catholic students were treated unfairly with early judgments proving out to be false smeared by media, not good but making big comeback new footage shows that media was wrong about teens encounter with native American at Tucker Carlson. That's great. I mean, I had recommended to the White House that President Trump actually tweet at Nic Sandman. Nice hat Nick wanna come to the White House. You remember Barack Obama did that with
