too bad that college has become a job training center Right Where you don't really just go to become educated I'm listening I'm just wondering if that was ever that if it was ever any different I'm sure there was a time when you just went to get more well rounded education you know Back in the day before you started chasing degrees for jobs like we all do But I was when I went to college and I looked through my first semester and why do I have to take chemistry The most useful beneficial stuff I experienced other than just being on campus and all of that This also was my radio classes and broadcasting classes That's when I really felt like I was learning something that I could apply to a job so I mean yeah I guess the whole well rounded thing matters but I also was like why do I have to take I was a chemistry I thought I was done with this junior year of high school You don't think that you are a you don't have to but don't you think you're a better more rounded person because you at least know how that part of the world works Yeah but I don't know how much I learned from that one semester than I did compared to what I learned through I took some science classes I guess you have your minimum amount of things you got to take math signs and all that stuff Social studies And I do feel we're weird because we're broadcasters We're exposing our knowledge and our thoughts and opinions here So I guess it helps that we're well rounded know a little bit about chemistry and math but not much but we just seem to be like look if I'm going to go four years to learn stuff and I'm going to give you a $100,000 I would like to know more than how to be a broadcaster I would like to think you gave me more than how to be an accountant But maybe to appreciate Shakespeare or something else right No you're right I mean I'm super happy I went to a four year university Absolutely I mean there's media broadcasting schools you know all throughout the country that you just paid two years and it's some streamlined broadcasting thing which some of those are crazy costs too I mean it's like okay you're not there's going to be a lot of debt here So I mean look at that as well But no I'm very happy I did the whole four years I did 5 years but you know what I mean You did four years you just did it in 5 years Well good for you You were able to make four or 5 Three one two says hey I'm a painter I make over a $100,000 a year I think I gave this guy a $100,000 and one more my daughter's a freshmen at SIU Carbondale She absolutely loves it It was almost a four GPA coming out of high school quite a few of her top 10% of her class went also to Carbondale She's only borrowed $1200 so far and she's really paying off the job of the school with campus job She qualifies for academic scholarships and they bridge the gap of what parents can and can't pay They really want Illinois kids there at essay You Carbondale They do a lot to get you there It's becoming popular again I hope so So it's as pretty as school as the state has Now yesterday we were talking about that Wharton school professor who said that her students don't realize what people make $45,000 is what the average American makes The average American worker earns 45 $46,000 a year And then what did you say about that Well you and I got into quite I've been thinking about the conversation we had yesterday John quite a bit The whole college degree and if it's worth it and when you gotta look at the debt compared to the degree you know I was thinking about this where I kind of said something where I'm like well the idea for a lot of kids when they're 17 18 thinking about colleges you get a degree and you're gonna be fine in this world which isn't always the case right I mean and you were kind of I don't know take it back by but you were like well I think you're gonna be in a better spot if you have a degree which I don't think you can argue with that but I think there's the balance right of you got a degree but what is it for What are you going to apply it to and what are the job opportunities that are going to be presented to you when you do get the degree and I was thinking about that If you're going to give out a loan to somebody who's going to be as we talked about philosophy majors or an English major what exactly are you going to do with that And it's going to cost somebody let's just say $80,000 to get through college right And then you forecast on what exactly your salary might be it's irresponsible Irresponsible to be giving people that amount of money for something that they know they can't pay that off for 20 30 years maybe even longer So shouldn't there be a balancing of being like okay what is your major This is how much you're gonna oh this is how much you might make This is how much we're willing to give you I've heard from a lot of people with those liberal arts degrees My son has a liberal arts degree I haven't heard back from him But I've heard from a lot of people who said well my philosophy degree my history degree my art or English degree I'm now using in business or I'm a lawyer and so there's some applicability and your ability to digest information

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Is a Complete Misnomer
"The ACLU continues to give ongoing proof that it is no longer a civil rights or a civil liberties organization. It's a misnomer, the American civil liberties union is this some kind of a joke. Well, in the past it really wasn't a joke. I remember thinking back to my Dartmouth Dave, there were times when the college administration would do things to us and we would go running to the ACLU. Now we did not have a high degree of confidence that the ACLU would come and back us. And we knew that if they did back us, they would say things like, oh, well, these are right-wing extremists, but you know what even right wing extremists have the right to free speech. So, but despite the hemming and hawing, we had this belief that the ACLU being a civil liberties organization would feel some moral pressure to take our side because we were being what? Well, deprived of our civil liberties. And the ACLU on these issues. On civil liberties issues was by and large, pretty sound. In fact, ACLU took a quite extreme position defending free speech when they defended the Nazis marching in Skokie, famous case. And the ACLU has now flipped.

I'm driving her for nothing. You know, for free, which I'm happy to do except that you people, it's your job to get her.

She says, if you're gonna talk to me like that, but I'm gonna end this conversation. So I said, fuck you. And I hung out. Good for you. I mean, I didn't want to deal with it. But the poor lady, I felt so bad for her. Anyway, God, these stories are so sad from the lifter writers, aren't they? I picked up a mess. I picked up a meth guy that was getting out of rehab. And he was. He was going to his house after being finishing his rehab. For meth addiction. I drove him for like 30 minutes to his house. He didn't shut up one second he kept talking. And I thought, he's not done with men. No. But I pray that he is. And guess where Mikey dropped him off? Weston. Oh, there you go. I took him to a friend of mine. I know that guy has stuff. Now, I wouldn't do that. Anyway, so those are my two sad lift story. And again, people got to know this. Because I don't do this for the money. Unless there's a bonus involved. Wow. And then I can be late for anything else on my agenda. That's delicious. That's what happened. So now, yeah. I want to say this about the Patriots. You know, I think we should call Bill Lee. Let's call him in a minute here because I got some baseball things for him. Okay. He's a guy that actually played the game. Professionally. It's a real baseball player. A 119 major league wins. Fenway Park, which is a precisely 119 more wins than I had in the big leagues. How about you guys? Yeah, just about the same. You didn't beat anybody. You guys, would you ever be? You always say that what do you ever pitch again? But the Patriots, you know, I love Bill Belichick. Everybody says nobody's such a jerk. He's not a jerk at all. He's the best coach in history he's God. He's God. When it comes to coaches, said that before. Yeah, and Brady is. Jesus. All right. Brady Brady left, though. You know, he went to somewhere else to be Jesus, but that's okay. There are 8 and four now. They've won 6 in a row, and they've won them convincingly, and they've done it with a rookie quarterback who never played in the National Football League. And yeah, he lost four games out of his first 6. He's making his way through the weeds, trying to figure out what's going on. They've won 6 in a row. They have the best record in the whole conference. It's remarkable. And for that reason, the first snow of the year, I am building a Bill Belichick, snowman's statue in my front yard. And then I'm going to glaze it over, freeze it and make sure it stays there for the longest time because he is the greatest coach that ever lived. You're going to take pictures of this so we can see it. Yeah. I did want to I did a large scale snow sculpture of a penis at my high school. Got suspended for that. Yeah. It was okay until I used the food coloring to make veins in it and stuff like that. They didn't really care or know what I was doing until I put them in. Oh my God. Was it circumcised?.

Ask Geoffrey: Chicago's Old Passenger Rail Stations
"Chicago's old passenger railroad stations for decades acted as the city's front door where people from all over the country arrived seeking a better life or just the thrills of the big city. Jeffrey bayer takes us back to the golden age. Rail travel in this week's ask geoffrey. Hey geoffrey good to see you paris all right so we have a question from larry gardner of skokie he says. Could you do a story on the old train stations that once stood in downtown chicago. Well of course we can. There is as you mentioned. The the late nineteenth century the early twentieth century this was the golden age of rail travel when people traversed the country on trains. And of course right at the center there at the hub of it all was chicago. It's hard to believe. But as recently as the nineteen sixties there were six passenger train stations in downtown chicago today. All passenger trains that come into the city from beyond the suburbs. Go through the last one standing union station which is now owned by amtrak. It's designed including this now. Demolished concourse was right along the river there and the colonnaded main building which is still standing right behind it. In this picture of those things recall the grandeur of rail terminals in those glory days of designed to wow the traveler of the way many airports do today met with. Certainly the goal of another neoclassical designed terminal. Check this one out owned by the chicago and north western railway you know classical buzzards and it stood at what is today. Ogilvie transportation center which is operated by metra. That station included ornate concourses. Waiting rooms even dedicated spaces for barbers and hairdressers. People traveling across the country The chicago north western railway traced its roots to chicago's very first railroad. The galena chicago union established back in eighteen forty eight. By chicago's first mayor actually will be ogden. Certainly the golden age of travel there and then another key player. Of course you hear references pop culture all the time the illinois central oh absolutely That country that company billed itself as the main line of mid america. It was a dominant player. Both in passenger and freight rail their main passenger terminal was called central station once stood just just south of grand part right on the lakefront there. The railroad built this mammoth terminal in one thousand nine hundred three in part to accommodate the influx of visitors. That were expected for the world's fair that year you'll notice almost all of these terminals have clocks or clock towers so people hurrying to catch trains didn't have to fumble around for their pocket watches that of course they had watches it. All central station was also an important point of entry for many african americans who came to chicago from the south during the great migration with like so many of its contemporaries central station met the wrecking ball. In this case in the mid one thousand nine hundred seventy s amtrak diverted there trains to union station but there is still an active platform. Eleven street serving the metra electric line and i gather it's the inspiration for that residential development around their central station. Which i believe. Richard m daley lived there for a while and not to be confused with grand central station. Of course right. That's right and yes. We had our own grand central station. here in chicago. Not new york's wasn't the only one ours was at harrison and wells on the western edge of the loop. Read along the river for about eighty years. It was just north of if you know we're river city's development is today Traffic declined grand central after world war. Two this photo with the board of trade there in the background was taken in nineteen sixty seven at the end of the stations life. It was torn down in nineteen seventy one and this is one of several places in the city. were abandoned. Railroad land is being redeveloped during construction of the new development on this old site buried. Stones from grand central station were actually unearthed and they've been re purposed for a river walk. One chicago train station of actually is still standing So in addition to union station is dearborn station. South loop although of course. It's on train station anymore. You can see its clock tower visible all the way from the north side of lube looking south down on dearborn but what happened to the top of that clock tower. Take a look at this early photo. And you'll notice it once had this huge wooden flemish roof on top of it but in one thousand nine hundred twenty two. It caught fire. Look at these incredible photos from the scene as crowds gathered. Luckily firefighters were able to save the building. But but not that tower roof. I the nineteen seventy s. Most of the train. Shed was demolished but the facade and portions of the terminal were preserved as part of a mall. Serving printers row by the building is still called dearborn station. In fact peres as you just pointed out. Many old stations live on in the names of new developments of the one. You mentioned central station. Just south of grand park word. Mayor daley used to live and then a new apartment building at harrison and wells is using the grim central name
Slate's If Then
Twitter will ban Holocaust denial posts, following Facebook
"If you're American, you probably think of free speech as the default. Just the way things are. And I. Don't know where it enters the stuff. I don't know if it's in the water or if it's in the kindergarten curriculum Evelyn. Is Not American, but it's only something that I have encountered faith in years is just like first amendment fundamentalism she's an Australian who lives in Massachusetts and she's one of most dynamic and nuanced thinkers. Online speech. She lectures at Harvard Law School. You came here to study kind of First Amendment Law to look at this stuff. As an outsider, what was your impression of the US fundamental adherence to free speech? I feel a little bit like gas lit as a foreigner when you come to America. As I did for years ago to Study Comparative Constitutional, Law, and free speech One of the most striking things about American free speech doctrine is this like this example of there were Nazis that wanted to march in skokie. I know jumping straight to Nazis his kind of leaping into the free speech depend. But Evelyn's describing one of the most famous first amendment cases when that really tests American values, the story goes like this. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, a group of neo-nazis wanted to march in the Chicago suburb of skokie Illinois largely because a lot of Holocaust survivors lived there seven thousand concentration camp survivors living in the predominantly Jewish Chicago suburb of skokie not surprisingly, there was a huge legal fight cokie officials a block Nazi demonstrations with court injunctions when the Nazis appealed to the State Supreme Court a judge has refused to hear the case. But what might surprise you if you don't know the story is that the American Civil Liberties Union indeed a lawyer with the ACLU defended the Nazis right to March under the First Amendment saying the right to free expression with integral to who we are as a country. It's just such an iconic story of the literal Nazis were going to be allowed to marching the street and as a foreigner you come here, new learn that and normally deland that it's it's not like these inconvenient embarrassment about Assessment Amendment Law. It's this like really proud one of the truly great victories for the First Amendment was that it will protect the speech that we hate because it is you know Betta to have it out in the urban it's better to meet it with county speech and we just can't trust the government to suppress as an Australian very striking. I don't even have a right to free speech. We don't have a bill of rights and our Constitution it's it's like a completely foreign idea this fight over unfettered free speech and in fact, where it collides with Anti Semitism and Holocaust denial broke into the news cycle again, this week, there's a split screen like the Supreme Court confirmation hearings going on on one side, and then on the other side facebook releases a blog post the company which has always said it values free expression above everything else announced that it would ban any content that denies or distorts the Holocaust. Two days later, twitter did the same thing. It might seem like banning Holocaust denial is a pretty easy call, but it was only a few years ago that facebook said, it wouldn't prohibit Holocaust to nihilism on its platform. which is part of why and says, this is a really big deal I. think this is like a really iconic moment in the history of the company and its thinking and its evolution around its rules. There is no more emblematic rule that facebook had about. To First Amendment Principles. Today on the show.

Good Monday dot com today. I, WanNa talk about how seismic shift this is if we think back to just two years ago. Mark Zuckerberg gave a very now well known interview to Cara Swisher. And said, she didn't believe that posts that deny the Holocaust should be taken down. I believe that our platform should take down because I think that there are things different people get wrong. either. I don't think that they're intentionally getting a wrong but I think that they. They might be but go home. It's hard to pune intent. Boy. It is a big journey from. People get things wrong even though I might find it personally offensive. To. My own thinking has evolved. The big thing that they always have hung onto was we don't WanNa be arbiters of truth, and we will not take content down purely on the basis that it's false. We might take it on the down on the basis that its nudity or that it's hate speech or that it has other sort of effects but we weren't take content down just because it's wrong and that's sort of what's reflected in that quote from Makoto Takhar Swisher is you know some people get things wrong sometimes and the the pandemic literally changed that decision overnight in the context of a global public health emergency they abandoned that they said we will take down. False information about the pandemic because it poses a public health risk, and now we're playing ball like now companies are taking content down on the basis that it's false and we're now seeing it in other areas. We saw it in the context of the wildfires in West my country was on file for months. In December and January, and there were lots of false rumors about the cause of the fires and facebook didn't take anything down and then Oregon was on fire A. Couple of months ago, and suddenly they were taking down misinformation about the cause of their as far as think a stock contrast as you can draw. It's still interesting to hear you peg this to the pandemic because I think about all the data points that came before that this is. After the two thousand, sixteen election, it is after the Charlottesville unite the right rally, which took place in two thousand seventeen. Do you think the coronavirus pandemic is it sort of launching us into a new I guess area of thinking about content and speech on its own or or easy it kind of a I guess a catalyst for something that was going to happen anyway. Yeah. You're absolutely right that it's only sort of it's part of the broader trend. It was a particularly visible and sort of obvious example of the trend in the same way that the pandemic has made many sort of fundamental. Assumptions structures in society more visible, and we've sort of seen progressively moving more and more along that line of sort of okay. We copies all speech all the time. Let's balancing trysts and draw the line and I think that the pandemic was just sort of another step along that road. If you think about it that way these announcements from facebook and twitter about banning Holocaust denial or in line with other content moderation decisions we've seen this year like the outright ban on Cunanan content. But in other ways several and says the decision. Holocaust. Denial marks a deeper and more fundamental shift in how speeches police online Holocaust denial is one of these iconic things about the first amendment and I believe that one of the reasons why facebook sort of stuck to that principle for so long of allowing on services was because it's still considered itself a fundamentally American company attached to these first. Amendment ideals is robust marketplace of ideas. Which is bizarre when you think about it these these are clearly global companies now and most of they US bases outside all over America but there was still something that it couldn't let go of and so I think it's really when Audience First Amendment land anymore like vc's we are now in this unknown landscape of trying to work out what norms we can attach ourselves to.
