religions of change in a democracy he mentions marriage by name and even include some Republicans his book the nation city why mayors are not running the world Emmanuel joins us from the studios of WB easy in Chicago thanks so much for being with us thank you Scott I thank you want to begin by by having you read a paragraph that captures the essence of cities if you could share while we were growing up there are movie theaters libraries museums a zoo parks and a mass transit system that made it possible to get to all of those places there were people of all different backgrounds and races and religious beliefs but one thing in common a profound yearning to improve their lot in life the city had its hazards too there was poverty and crime there were dark alleys that we avoid it my brothers and I were more than once taunted for being Jewish the city shape does it held all the promise and all of the peril in the world the mission last paragraph thank you is that where cities have to come up with solutions because so many different kinds of people have to live together that's part of it yeah and I mean by Joel if you please yeah no I mean think about it this insidious Chicago there's a hundred and forty five languages spoken in our public schools but while it's many different languages many different face many different races backgrounds incomes the aspiration of a parent is no different and so you have to do is a mayor form that into kind of a for lack of a better way of saying it they create a singular melody in a singular chorus of that moves the entire city forward and there are good days and bad days at it there days that you make real gains in days that are incremental and they carry in them all the promise of what a better tomorrow could be in all the peril of not getting there let me ask you about one of the mayors whom we celebrate in the book and and what he did about a what over for it was a truly vaccine yet un sexy problem for many minutes of holidays and that's pension liability Sylvester Turner of Houston had an idea for that you admire well I think at the end of the book Scott what I'm things I try to talk about is there are kind of flashing yellow lights that we don't manage these issues and deal with them they're gonna threat the promise and become more of a peril our pension liabilities are very big he came up with a way of putting money into the system of rewriting it so people got their pension meaning police fire and other municipal employees came up with additional revenue additional contributions is a balanced approach that then stabilize the pensions insured people's retirement and you had a more productive growth economy which was not being held back by uncertainty we were down there for the debate and if I talk to police and fire zero Democrats yeah I'm sorry I was asking police and fire down there and I was so sure he gets as much thumbs up from them as I think he deserves for having at least putting himself out there to tackle an issue that he knew if he didn't tackle it was gonna hold a Houston back from a better future well as you know there are room they're people I would include president trump they don't want to don't want to take any advice from America Chicago because of the city's appalling homicide rate yeah I don't mind taking advice is always you back it up first why don't they give advice is very good the idea that you just bang heads on top of a car a police car that's not community and that's not community policing here's the thing on Chicago we have a challenge we have a major amount of guns coming into the city last year Chicago's police took a record ten thousand guns off the street but there's no shortage of access we have a challenge in the criminal justice system we have a challenge that existed in our public schools although as you know from reading the book major gains to make there and I think that's the cornerstone of what you have to do you have to create hope and opportunity where there's usually despair you have to have a better policing better to me religion so it is not one thing and the good news is Sir if there is good news is we have plenty examples special over the last three years of where we've made changes and that using the material safety and security improve we have so much more work to do you've you've got kind words in here for both their voter judge of south bend mayor Bloomberg of New York mmhm which one should be president that's for you guys decide to meet all our public anyone you want to be president phrase that that let me say it this way all right everybody talks about policy center the real skills that you're looking for is do you have the capacity to learn do you have the capacity to fall down pick yourself up and understand how to learn from that how to dust yourself off and move forward one you look at the record but you also look at their times that not only they succeeded with times that they have failed what they learned from that what did they do with that failure and how did he influence the next decision and that judgment that self awareness and reflection is what's important former Roma manual is book the nation's city why mayors are now running the world thanks so much for being with us thank you Scott now time for sports twenty year old from Slovenia scorching of the boards in the

good morning Howard good morning Scott how are you I'm just fine thank you but let's start with the Dallas Mavericks who stomped Orlando last night one twenty two to one oh six Luka don Tripp scored thirty three points he's among the top players in the league right now isn't it yeah he's terrific and I think that's one of the great things about watching the NBA is that as much as it's a team sport and move the games have been great and you've got these wonderful teams have played great team ball as the warriors did for the past several years look at dodges and an amazing talent twenty years old really took a lot of people by surprise and traded on draft day in the in the whole thing and if you watch him he's already had two classic battles with lebron James this season no matter who you want to put up there if you're talking about Kawhi Leonard are you want to talk about lebron Anthony Davis or James harden he's he's just as good as as any of those guys are playing right now and I think that he's he's another one of those guys where if you stop what you're doing when he's playing in and he's also one that you would pay to watch really terrific player Matt asking moving to baseball David Ortiz Boston's big papi said this week that Mike Fiers and he's the former Astros pitcher who exposed to sign stealing operation is quote a snitch and if you're saying something after he won a World Series ring let me read what but with big papi said use it after you get your ring you decided if you decide to talk about it why don't you talk about it during the season when it was going on even down to.
