"So we have two historic homes on site. We have the kellogg house and then we have the mad house. On the nag kellogg couches built in eighteen. Ninety eight and the house is built in eighteen. Nine hundred eighty nine so You know we We try to have the visitors. Having experience of how life would have been during the eighteen ninety s when they go home but then it's also so much more so we say you know we have these eighteen ninety eight to eighty ninety s beautiful victorian homes and And knows where basically those are. Those are the centerpieces of the newseum on those homes. Obviously we preserve the family histories We preserve the homes Which i would say that historic preservation. You know more. Probably more specifically on the west coast. His is not necessarily huge priority. When you go when you go back to the east coast visit cities on the east coast. People are a little bit more aware and a little bit more fame bellevue. I believe historic preservation in the east the west coast. It's a little bit rare so So we share stories of the families. We actually have archives collections of the families as well And so yeah we say you know the the the museum you have this on you you you literally get a chance to step back into time especially when you walk onto twelve acres. There's a lot to see. You're talking about the value of all these different cultures communicating with one another. And certainly the big story of this country and of california is immigration. You've said that your parents were immigrants. Does your family situation going up in that. you think. Help you tell those stories as you talk to people yes definitely I definitely think that that kind of personal experience in knowing my parents have stories coming here and understanding that You know my parents experiences one kind of unique experience to maybe themselves just to in overall maybe kind of experience immigration from people of mexico. I believe that You know all people who eventually immigrated into the united states during ready to an area they have these stories in there is a shared experience their shared their shared experiences in the senate. And i think when we understand that there are shared experiences in in on in experience when things like this occur that it actually gives us a he keeper understanding of ourselves an appreciation for other people that we are not familiar with and and actually connects them. There's a connection so for example We were talking to our when we were doing the interviews and talking with our vietnamese elders. The students myself. We made a lot of connections to it means culture to mexican culture and if it wasn't for us having these conversations really actually getting down and sitting down and spending time with These these elders. These folks community members neighbors actually We would have. We would have had never known and so like one example within that. Is you know the They were they were sharing. How there's a celebration That do The they do memorials for family members. Who have passed away and they kind of build these little altars in their homes to members of their families who passed away And the first thing that the students thought of for like hey. This is the same thing that we do. For what else we do. The same exact thing and so for them they're like it just gave them the value and appreciation for other people. Say how we are. Not so very different. We are super unique in our own culture in our own ways. But we're also very similar. And we're continuing our discussion kevin cabrera. Who's the executive director of the heritage museum of orange county kevin. You've been talking about all these cultural things. I know you also have a focus on sort of hands on things. And i was hoping to come down and learn how to be a blacksmith. But i guess that's gotta be a delayed a little bit based on something that happened here. That is correct but we actually had a fully functioning blacksmith shop on sites. We teach lacks machine classes the gills and then we also all of our elementary programs which i'm run from kindergarten to fifth grade We can also add the blacksmith component to that program. Yes for a fourth of july. Two o'clock in the morning the fire. The the blacksmith shop actually caught fire and burned down and so the entire for for the entire shop was burnt. So that's bump in the road. We are obviously currently working with insurance to get everything hopefully back in running as soon as we can. but that's also a a beloved dump. Space within the newseum people don't necessarily get get to smell coal-burning anymore and nc the fire in the origin and actually get to learn that trade and and that trade even though it's not how it was hundred years ago hundred twenty years ago. Where you know blacksmiths. Were joined things to the commute for the community that were very necessary so like making a a a butter knife that you have to use. While that's not hobby see were blacksmiths or doing today. There'd be more creative. With the the skill blacksmith him And so you see how something like blacks mccain has a ball from being something that was very necessary for community for the likelihood of a community to now being a creative space where you can create things that people are going to enjoy and there's going to be one of a kind hello. This is wayne parker with the stories. Podcast continuing my conversation with kevin cabrera. Who's executive director of the heritage museum of orange county and kevin like to ask. Now what would we have seen five or six hundred years ago at that location. Oh i love that you mentioned that. So yeah five hundred. Five hundred seventy years ago What's really unique about the museum is. We're located really adjacent to the river. The santa ana river which is the the major water source You know kind of that kind of to orange county so it comes all the way from the san bernardino mountains and that river flows oddly down to the beach to the ocean essentially and so Five hundred six hundred years ago The space that will we are currently but then also not just what we are currently.

I'm your host Ardmore, and with us today is Dr John Gallard. He's got some pretty stellar credentials. He is board certified in veterinary emergency medicine, canine and feline medicine. He's the director and founder of the streak dog coalition and the lady bug fund, and he is a proud Papa to a couple of fine felines named Thomas. And Eddie, what's the four one one on those two cats? They always have a story Thomas was surrendered at our emergency clinic because the owner couldn't afford to pay for his broken leg after he fell out of a tree. So that involved a Besson took him over got to do the surgery with another better, Dan than she decided she can take care of many more. So we got. We out which late was it, which it was. I think it was is. I mean it was back leg. And now he's all healed up. So I'm not even sure. But, but, I remember he does he sometimes lays in very strange positions probably really into his leg. But maybe it's doing feline yoga, you know. Yeah, I really there. So there's finds herself flexible. But, you know, many hours of cheap entertainment just watching them. How old is he? What kind of markings, does he have? Saying he's kind of grain. White. I'm not sure exactly. I never my cat breeds, so breeds. Yeah, exactly. Some kind of mix looks kind of abyssinian, but as Marcus have changed over time. So he's a pretty cat. Nathan. Hero or how does that. How old do you think these about eight years old? Okay. And how about Eddie Eddie's a seven-year-old that we was adopted from feed store and he was supposed to be as tangle kit. Really small cat. And he was supposed to be.

Don't do a great job of controlling their weight challenge any cat owners. Right, right. They're indoor indoor Cavs lazy. They I was going to do a study on literally stay up for twenty four hours to see what these cats do for twenty four hours because I suspect they sleep for about twenty five of those twenty four hours. Probably what kind of markings, does he have in. He's one of those tech Cedo cats black and white. All right. And he's a little bit strange as sometimes she kind of gives you a blank look. But overall, he's very, very affectionate loves Tunisia with its sharp claws and nice. That's your like that. So only on your nice clothes, right? Yeah. Definitely my down code, has little pieces of down coming out of it. Now. That'd be some duck tape. So, like got you into the field of veterinary medicine new, I took a detour. I didn't even go to best goal till I was forty years old. Wow. And I worked as a kind of a builder up in the mountains of Colorado for fifteen years, never really finished college. Winter few places spent six months, traveling in the desert with a with a pack borough kind of trying to figure out what I wanted to do. But that's when I was twenty three so knows thirty eight hundred finally decided. Hey, I, I know what I wanna do this sounds great because it combined science in my love of animals. And so went to that school at age, forty in cutout, each forty five some kind of elite, definitely late start, but it works out, well, because I'm also not burned out like a lot of my colleagues have been doing right. Thirty or forty years. So it's working really well, especially as the set career always tell people, it's never too late, it, I definitely meet folks, I wish I had been a better man. Maybe they're like thirty two years old. It's like, wow, I wasn't even thinking about. Una veterinarian. Well, you know they have a show the rookie, you know, he's forty I think they should do a show now called the veterinarian and you could be the star of it, you know, there's, there's people all over the million. I mean, there's people in their mid fifties in school these days. So it has is the thing it is a great second career, I dunno argument thought about still going vet school, but you probably could. Well, I love you. But I think I'm a little older than you, but I agree, I think because I'm in the field of pet first aid, and CPR, and I spent a lot of time with veterinarians. I'm not queasy about blood. I like cats and dogs. It was something I wish I would have done it a little sooner. But I just admire people that are doing things for pets. Necas your patients aren't telling you. Hey doc, it hurts right here. That's true. All been many veterans choose a career path because. Kind of like that emissary wanna be dealing with people that are telling them where it hurts all the time. I don't think there's a lot of hypochondriac poodles out there are there. No, there's not. It's kinda similar to pediatric medicine though, because it is it is not something for some of the just wanna work with animals. I love animals. I'm not really bet. Great with people. It is a people profession. The owners are who we talked to communicate with, and it's no skills. I think really determines a veteran success or failure versus his scientific knowledge and ability, surgery or procedures. Yeah. Now getting back to the homeless. You talked a little bit. And I wanted to get a little bit more specifics. There are a lot of encampments and you did a presentation recently at a conference in, I appreciate you sending your presentation to me. I used to live in oceanside, California. I'm very familiar with the Santa Anna area of Orange County, California. You've got the riverbed and you talked about the encampment court guard dogs. What's that, all about, well, this riverbed in which actually doesn't exist anymore? But I was there in January of last year, so about a year ago, basically a bike trail going along the Santa Ana river and both sides of this trail are lined with tents and shacks, and they're fairly permanently lived in meaning this isn't just one night at a time, folks have set up camp there and set up their little houses an essay over half of them have little chihuahuas or large pit bulls guarding their camps. Okay. That's kind of their own your own police system known else's providing security so chihuahuas are actually great camp guards because they're pretty noisy. And they can actually be a little bit scary that literally the week after I was there in taking some pictures that camp. Got completely shut down. And everyone was moved out of it and forced to find other places to go. I think they have thirty days of motels and Manica that they've dispersed in other places around in Orange County. I was was used in Long Beach area in the Los Angeles river bike trail along it, and it, it hasn't can't mitts along it as well. But every so often they will get shutdown have to start all over, but because the dogs provide that protective function in companionship, you know is a good match, but they need better care. We provide preventive care, but we also deal with there's lots and lots of skin issues plays. Nice California with fleas indigo up further north midwest. Ticks. Her a big problem in certain areas of Dan, in Florida heartworms, our big problem. So, so it's important to just get in the basic medical care and try to try to as much as we can in that setting. You know, we definitely aren't doing major surgery out in the field, but we do quite a bit just like a paramedic to do out of an ambulance. So it seems like there's kind of a catch twenty two year facing going to these places in camp mates. And maybe word of you coming in sometimes alert the thirties or the authorities. I mean it seems like it's a vicious cycle because these people need a place to be, and they can't just puff up into a cloud in, you know, hang out on clouds, right? If you if you miss a quick story that it happened in to me in Las Vegas, where we were in the tunnel. People are what with a tunnel people we're, we're getting set up to do a street clinic, and literally the night before the Las Vegas. North Las Vegas. We're talking about very different things. North Las Vegas is really tight. A concrete jungle as everyone sleeping on the sidewalk. There have been actually serial murderer that had been killing some homeless men have been sleeping on the sidewalk and any did this in the same almost the same location. Each time, the places set up a sting using just a sleeping bag just over over mannequin and set up a video camera, and they actually caught a kind videos, sledgehammer ring, this mannequin, quote unquote to death. Oh, they were able to obviously, they figured out who it was. It found the guy. They traced back to the other murders. But the next day, there was lots of lots of police officials lots of policemen of city officials around and what we try to set up our street clinic, they were there and they were nearby henna kept everyone away. And so our ten was much lower than we expected because of presence of city officials, and then I found out that these pet owners may not be legal immigrants, for example. So there were yeah, they're even just worried about their pets being taken away, because I don't have a proper license may be warrants out for their rest. So, so what we learned was a try to minimize the presence of, of officials in place as much as we can. But we still had to have to worry a little bit about security in some areas, so kind of find balanced, but that all goes to the trust, and we've been doing stuff in Las Vegas since then. And now there's rotating clinics now there's a high level of trust. So explain how you built that trust the second time he went to because it sounds like these folks. Could use your help you said you work with? But what specifically what's the kind of conversation you have? Or is there certain body, language things you do to build that? I'm here to help you. I'm not here to take you away from your pet while it goes back to what I said earlier, we partnered with another group called they're called street, dogs LV case, biggest, they spell it with Z, working Las Vegas. They provide free pet food and medical supplies and free pet boarding. If someone you know, say, someone has to go to jail, or they have to go into rehab, or whatever they, they take care of their pets form ordered with them. And they have they had already developed a lot of trust. And so every two or three months, we're doing a street clinic in different parts of north north Las Vegas.

I hate mosquitoes. Well, we already have West Nile and Ecuadorian encephalitis. And now with all the rain we're gonna have standing water and now with this new mosquito that showed up the carries sort of tropical diseases like like. What's the word that much shoot? What am I thinking of which one? Are we talking like yellow fever Donut? Well, perhaps I haven't looked into that yet. But I'm thinking more dingy dinghy that Johnny Fiat malaria. Nick, danny. Well, no, that's a different studio. So so, yeah, I mean, the point is we've in my thing, I'm exercised by is that we've decided as a political unit in California that we're not biological anymore. We don't need to attend to those things anymore. We don't need to tend to the basic rights of civilizations. Don't bother don't bother and the same thing. You crazy which is kind of the basic needs of living in a certain area. Right. Right. It's so it's so frustrating to me. I just I really get. I get very very upset. But you're eating a chocolate chip cookie right now. Yes. One of your magical devices. I it's you like that. Just a touch crisper though. So that one, but that's like one gram net carbon that chocolate chip cookie. So you can you're you're you're happy you're into that stuff too. You it's been the greatest thing ever for me. What's that? No cardinals. Starch you've cut it out completely having as best. I can. And so again, every body does a little bit. There are gonna be there very soon. We're going to be having genetic testing, the tell us what we should be what kinds of things tweaking that ratio gross. This is one of the reasons diet generally is so frustrating for people are like, you know, is the one size fits all. Right. You're all very different, and we're going to be able to test for that. And then recommend particular dietary programs that are the best for that give given biology. I can't really for me. The no star snowshoe variables as soon as I eat some bread immediately bloat, and and it goes to it goes my middle. And that's the inflammatory part of the problem. And this part has gone way down with me. And I feel great. Yeah. I mean, you look great. So that's so. Yeah. So I just keep going so hard. Yeah. You. No. I mean, it's it's that initial her. So hang on say, I want to focus on something that you just said it's not hard that initial week when you cut out carbs is hard. It wasn't. Well, it has historically. It has been for me. I actually go through like a heroin Trump. Yes. I'll get irritable. Discontent on them, by the way. Yeah. But in this case, I had adequate fat, I really paying attention. And I found hard to maintain. But I had adequate fat and lots of protein. And there was nothing. I just noticed. I was sleeping better and have more energy. Yep. I love avocado. If there is a connection between distillery, not real acidosis and hyperthyroidism. So I am saying take care of that. Okay. Got it. I'll take a look into send text me that direction. So. We have too many things going on all over the place right now. So he you were off on the east coast. I was so do you have any new shows you're announcing no, I was just sort of running around just making having a good time. I love New York City. So we have the weirdest experience. I six eight months ago. I was I was picked up very in the more. I was doing good Morning America, something, and I was driving down the street. And I was looking around. I was enjoying it. And I thought what is this feeling? What what what what? Oh my God. I am in love with this city in love with it. Yeah. It's the weirdest thing. I'm like a romantic feeling of love for that. AM city came up with the oh I love, but I'd never expected to feel it quite that vividly. So so because of that I like spending much time there. I can't. So there you go. Okay. I'm here planning. Don't worry. I know. I know I know the California is still home calmed you down from all the PG. I just I can't get over that. So what are the? I'm always worried about things like pollution. Tell me what you know because listen, but our school of we have a Laguna school of dolphins in southern California. And they just died because the what came through the Santa Ana river because of all the infectious disease material from the homeless encampments you've tied directly back to the homeless encampments doing the autopsies now, but we we knew stuff would wash that Santa river would not be good for sea mammals. And now we have a whole. What did what kind of we'll find out all kinds of stuff? I just heard somebody sent me a note on that saying, hey, did you see this news about what happened the dolphin? And that's because of what washed out into the theory is they tops. He's looking. What is the sense to me? I kept saying that was going to happen. That's that's sad. And fascinating at the same time. They ran into the syringes, which there were many tens of thousands of all infected. But largely infected so what do we do about that? So you have a combination problem right now. So that's the piece I keep saying is like if you do not humanely take care of people that are languishing in our streets and you allow their illnesses to keep them in the street and the symptoms of their illnesses. Prevent you from intervening. If you don't do something like expand gravely disabled expand conservative ships. So these poor families at once their loved ones back and get them back and get free didn't keep them in their homes, and and by the way when they get treated and look back. They're pissed at people for leaving them on the streets. You're literally laying the symptoms of their illness lack of insight paranoia, unwillingness drugs and alcohol, use whatever it might be. You're letting those symptoms be the reason you don't help people from dangerous illness and for a heart attack. And you didn't help them would be considered cruel because it's a brain disease. Somehow, we have entirely different yardstick we use and now because we decided that civilization doesn't need it's basic functional needs like rodent control vector control with fleas. Sanitation. We don't need that anymore. There will be major major. She's really funny that you brought up the fleas thing. Because I I actually thought it went to the vet with my little dog who's really is mostly an indoor dog by detailer for walks outside. And that was like, oh, do you want the flea medication? Yeah. Just keep hearing talk about fleas all the time. Type of thing is unbelievable. Had it, and my my son had norovirus norovirus twice which he got from volatile is feces off the streets of Hollywood. Yeah. Yeah. Yes. You can't just ignore the basic needs of biological ecosystem and expect they're not to be consequences. What's the matter with us, which which I met one of your sons, he he had typhus when he was a kid what talk to him about it. Does he get typhus when he was a kid because typhus is endemic in Southern Cal. That's right. That's right. The foothills. And so when I saw the flea and rat thing explode, I thought oh my God. We're gonna have a typist problem. I knew it. I knew it. Yeah. And then it's I I was in city hall, Los Angeles. And they're like, oh, no. It's a big deal. It's a horrible illness. It is devastating and now because some politicians got it and are saying oh my God. I thought I was going to die. Yeah. You could've thank you for now. Caring about the people L. There you go. But remember again part of our problem at dates back. It is more than fifty years old of we kept people in psychiatric institutions in absolutely inhumane. No, no, no. No. No. Yes. We did. Here's what happened. In nineteen th mids early sixties. Yes, my profession stepped up and said we have a new drug. It's called Thorazine. It's gonna take care of everything. President Kennedy please sign the community mental health act said start getting people out of these hospitals, which were excellent at the time. Let's get the people out of them. They don't need to be house. We can get them back to work and get them to flourish in their life. Great idea wrong. The Thorazine is gonna make people somehow flourish. No. So they started pulling people out sending their community health, which wasn't a bad idea. But they didn't fund the community health mental health services sufficiently now the conditions of the state hospital started deteriorating physicians did not want to work there because it was desperate populations. It was poorly paid it was deteriorating environments, and it started a spiral then where nobody wanted to work there. Then a couple of public kinds of things happen like one flew over the cuckoo's nest and people ran away from them, then so it was a whole series of decays, and then they were finally closed and that was that. It was not one thing. But there are a series of things that happened to an president Carter actually tried funding the community health and really closing down. The he accelerated the closing down of the state of the large right by funded it, and it was President Reagan and the Republican administration who immediately de funded what president Carter had finding because it wasn't working. It wasn't working just to remove the money with nothing to replace it. Right. And then, but they're they're playing at least is my profession as usual. It's sort of messed it up. All right us that really advocated strongly for getting these things dismantle in the first place. And I don't think we advocate a strong enough for the community mental health stuff when it was time to and now here we are. So let's make the Enron. Margaret Seneca is going out of Senator Weiner up in northern California. London breed gets it. She understands it. And she's actually getting housing addressed as well right now. Well, what they found out. There was eighty percent of the people. They offered housing to did not want to. I know that's because of the illnesses if you don't treat the illnesses, of course, they're not going to watch the movie the soloist I saw was on the net.

Or is it got stuff in it? Now looking at their spill everywhere. There's two cups and both have remnants. Oh, man. And there's there's napkins soak with coffee and played with effect. We got to remove this. This is what's causing this thing. Excuse me. A second son of morning show. Do they have to drink coffee like twelve noon what what's going on? It's coffee. No good, Debbie. I had my Cup of coffee at around seven thirty this morning. Vegan approve. It is vegan approved. But I'm also drinking green tea right now. Not that you asked. But I thought I'd throw it in there. But no milk in your no milk. No. But I do almond milk in my coffee, Creamer. Put the garbage get out the hall thing. You didn't hear that? I know don't tell them about vegan nonsense.

I guess we're working on bringing the show to Venice Venice. Of course. There's a neighborhood there. You don't wanna go. Well, I do wanna go because hero Topi Garcetti's plan at least the current ground zero to bring this bridge housing into neighborhoods where people don't want it. Right. Yeah. One hundred and fifty bed encampment right there in the neighborhood and Venice. They have fought Venice stakeholders a couple of other groups have been fighting now for months to stop it. It's Mike bonds council district. Of course, that means. It's a dead end. I think he was almost himself at one point. And why didn't he stay homeless homeless or a drug addict or both at writing? I think both. I mean, he would have been better off if he stayed on as state on the hard stuff way too much sympathy and not enough sympathy for people who actually own a home and have a family. That's been the problem all along with these politicians at run the city. So we're working on bringing a show there near or around the site. What is it like to hate normal people and regular families? What is that? Like, what is it that enrages guys like Baden like that? They get upset with you that you have job, you have a house and cars, and you have kids, and you wanna lawn in the swimming pool, and you want to get to work and back and take your kids to soccer and dance lessons. And all that why does that make him? So mad that he plots all day to ruin it like road diets and and. High taxes? People can't enjoy your life. No. I won't let that happen. That's a good theory. I'll rain homeless people on them. I'll take away the roads with road diets good. I'll I'll everything is an attack on the normal. Everything all rating, the intolerable. It's been about five years ago. Everything shifted until like old tra- progressive destructive nonsense. Now, I don't know what is this five years. Now, I guess. I was I was thinking about this today. I was in my staring room. And I thought you know, I think it was about six years ago. We had the first occupy protests twenty eleven I can tell you. All right. So now we're coming up on eight years. It was twenty eleven twenty eleven right and occupies were a curiosity. Then right because you had skid row, but you didn't have a water homeless sleeping at all over the city. And there was this mass amount of tents and poo and garbage and drugs and overflowing toilets people having sex in those porta talk. Yeah. Right. Right. But remember was such a novelty, though, everybody was in all the big cities. Big news. We all covered, and we went to the downtown LA occupy right because it was unusual because she didn't have this. Now, if he did it occupy it wouldn't make any news because occupies everywhere, there's crowds of people living in the streets, intense and sleeping bags defecating. And injecting drugs, it's like that little collection. They had on their front lawn. At city hall has now metastasized like this, terrible, cancer and spread everywhere. And I thought okay, this didn't exist in two thousand eleven that's why occupy was such a sensation. So what happened in the last seven plus years that it's now everywhere. The economy got a lot better right for most people. Yes. Yeah. I'm thinking I'm thinking they said this after the mortgage meltdown ten years ago, there's going to be people that never find work again. And I realize it's a small percentage, but they become hardcore poor after ten years of Yelm, founded job, it's on you. Okay. You've you've got the big allied your head. Some of them are too old unskilled in what it's gotta be that there's more powerful mind destroying drugs, then existed some years ago, you were talking about the fennel yesterday, wiping people out by the thousands. And then there was the story. The other day about more people die of opioids the die in car crashes. And I'm thinking, maybe this is it maybe these drugs are not just a high anymore. They're not a buzz. They're not a recreational thing. It's something that destroys your brain. And the next thing. You know, you're stumbling around, and you can't you can't think anymore. You know, what go back maybe this? Maybe the shower bench. I think you need you haven't quite come to a good enough conclusion with all these things. I know I'm working on it, you I think you're close to something. It's a work in progress. Trying to see what the evolution is that led us to the day. Now where we just have bums everywhere. And nobody seems to care at least the politicians something fundamentally changed. That's another thing. Nobody cares. Titians? Right. So then I'm annoyed because the voters never never bounce them out. Right. And there's so much apathy about stuff they would normally caused a huge outrage. Reaction right. Yeah. If you had hair, I mean, it's to the point. I think yesterday was like a tipping point for me at Starbucks Email. You're reading from the guy Costa who said it's been a month, and he can't convince Starbucks to let this really stink mess of a vagrant. Take kick him out. He lives there for morning tonight. He knows everyone. He just back today. Oh, yeah. Oh, do you have what's the latest? Because he he's basically he said was he went there Monday in the guy's gone. And he said he thinks he saw him heading towards his home after he left Starbucks. So the problem may be solved. But he doesn't go there every day. I guess the listener didn't go to Starbucks every day, especially when homeless guy took over. But he did check Monday. And the guy was not there, which was a change from the previous couple of months. So I I would think now that you know, he sent the Email to us, and we were reading it for twenty minutes yesterday that that eventually somebody at Starbucks has got to say, okay. Let's let's get this guy out of here. He's way to to wait. What's the worst PR? Right, right. The the hell we're going to get for throwing people out of Starbucks on the hell we're gonna get for not throwing people out that smell and our vagrant wherever you grew up. You had a coffee shop, right? You had someplace everybody went to get breakfast and coffee in the morning. No matter what Aaron no matter. How old you are? There's always was that place in every town big or small, and you know, we all know that if it happened when we were kids that you had one of these smelly medicine guys stumbling around for twelve hours. The owner would say get out take a hike or I'm calling the police, and if you had to call the police Noli loitering would no loitering. Everywhere and it would be automatic. There'd be no discussion no debate. That would be don't know nothing no court of appeal on this is like you're out of here and the police who have big guns. They're going to take you out and take you on a long ride, and we're not going to a restaurant. I go to bed only every few months right in my town and next to it is one of these coffee shops. It's not Starbucks. It's another chain every time I've gone by in the last year. There is a guy. I guess he's a homeless guy. He's sitting out front with his dog and his stuff, and it's not a lot of stuff, but he's camped on a table outside. And I'm like, they are they're tolerating. This guy's basically living at the coffee. Shop has been probably for months, but I only go by every now and then but what are the chances? If I go by every month or two, and I keep seeing them there. He's probably there every day. That's a given. I mean, you're right. I don't know what I keep waiting for the breaking point. And I really got sad that another breaking point prop six didn't pass because I thought that could maybe start bellwether of change taxes, but you can lead to other things and it didn't happen. We're not there yet. I don't know when it is a departmental come here because they know we're pushing for that breaking deposit boxes for for needles in the Starbucks back in how about that use needles. You got a box drug addict he could throw the needle. And that's the employee's. We're getting stuck. They know what else to do. That's what I'm saying this stuff. I I don't I can't stand. The idea that this is all going to be absorbed. Normalized all this is the way it is not going to be the way it is. And that was the battle in Orange County over the Santa Ana river bed at least they stood up and fought that Todd Spitzer and the rest and said, this is not going to be normalized several said that emails and always stuck in my head. We cannot normalize this behavior. Now once you accept it. And let it go on, and it grows and becomes more disgusting. You've normalized now to the point. Where will you can't do anything? They've been here so long. I mean, there are part of our life. Right. It's always been this way. All right.
