Is Drew Brees no longer the elite quarterback of the past
"Think it's time to sound the alarms on drew brees who was uncharacteristically erratic with his accuracy yesterday on top of of the week one game where he couldn't move the ball it's definitely too bad back to back weeks for drew brees. But I think this week them not having Michael Thomas out there I mean Alvin Kamara he's still look good but obviously, they need more than just him. He can't just be the Alvin Kamara show out there. So drew brees I. Think. Yeah. You have to be a little concerned at this that we're not seeing what we should be seeing out of him because Derek Carr put up the numbers that drew brees should have last night. It's another game where you know you look at breeze his average depth target is just over five yards, the vast majority, and this was obviously true with Michael Thomas to the vast majority of yardage that he's gaining is coming after the catch it's a different type of quarterback that they have to play around. Like Luke are my son, it became a saints fan a year ago, and my concern was like, well, you kind of jumped on this one a little late in the game had you been born earlier that might have been more profitable for you but he asked last night like is drew brees look so sad and I thought like like on a micro right like on a micro level it's because you're losing to the raiders on Monday night football and you're frustrated but like on a Matra level like the something in the is a breeze. Through me down the stretch like you can kind of get in the is well, you've seen this with Peyton manning to like in that last year and. First of all small sample size. Let's see what happens the true breeze but there are concerning distressing signals out there were seen it on the field and I thought that there was a look in the eyes of drew brees last night that sort of new something's changed here. It's not the end, but something's changed and heap maybe shares a little bit of the concern that we share because he had. You did and he. Does face. It makes me think about retirement. Remember he almost consider retirement. And players always say like once you think about it you're you're already you're already there. What did you see colleen last night? No. The same thing that's US did there was one shot in particular of through breezes face that he just you could see it was written all over his face. It was just pure dejection I. Guess to like He. He looked so sad in the moment time for that Viking funeral just put him on the wooden rafts now and push them out into the Gulf of Mexico start firing those arrows Taylor swift. They've got Winston. I Love Patras tweet where he said, we're like four weeks away from breeze coming down with a mysterious injury and Winston getting a little bit of a test drive. I mean listen that would be wild and I. Think our boy that boy wolf the number one saints fan on. Twitter pointed out that Winston had killer training camp, and and you know we also have, of course chastened Tatum Hill the twenty one, million dollar man who really has not been involved the offense too much through two weeks. Sean Payton is a guy that is if they continue to struggle you imagine it's going to be hard for him not to think about mixing things up or perhaps making a big change, but it still thinks I still feels a little premature especially the Michael Thomas. Out. Emmanuel Sanders had had a bad game yesterday. He's obviously not his straight he's in the. Chakwal Smith. IS THEIR NUMBER ONE RECEIVER So a lot of the states have a lot of work to do both in strategy and play and discipline. And now they got the packers. So that's going to be a games. Look forward to

Is Mitch McConnell Rigging The Game?
"Other news, there's the other branch of Congress or the other house. Of Congress. The Senate and everyone knows their Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is unshakable and ruthless, and he's going to maximize his power however cam, but it is also the case the death of Justice Ruth Bader GINSBURG has taken us to uncharted territory. There are very real political pressures that are going to affect how the next several months play out. Mitch McConnell does not care about being charged with the Crisi but the raw politics of this moment themselves are not uncomplicated. As it was with the affordable care act remember Mitch McConnell had a lot of bravado about that and he failed famously and humiliatingly to replace the law. Here's mayor discuss across pressures. He faces longtime McConnell Allah Gist Jane Mayer Chief of Washington correspondent New Yorker wrote an incredibly insightful profile McConnell back in April this weekend row quote from Mitch McConnell keeping a Senate. Majority matters more than the Supreme Court. Jamie. It's great to have. Let's start with that because it seems to me there's two imperatives here. Everyone says about McConnell the two things he cares about is keeping the Senate majority and being Senate majority leader. Judges the Federal Bench, and there is a way to interpret the politics of the moment that there's a little bit attention between those two imperatives. How do you see it? Well, I mean there is I mean he wants to get obvious wants to hold the majority wants to stay being majority leader. And, this is going to be the crowning moment of his career to have yet one more justice on Supreme Court here we can get him through and he's promised trump of course that he's going to have a vote on this, and so how do you do this the problem? The problem for McConnell is it's unclear if he can keep the majority in the Senate. It's a dicey election year for him. There are a number of racist. They're very close and he doesn't want to do anything that's going to hurt the endangered members of his caucus. So he's got to try to juggle the schedule in some way that doesn't put those members on the spot in a way that will hurt them. So he's the first thing he's going to do an, and surely his done is canvas. Those members find out exactly how they feel about how this this process would affect their races. And then, and then way that in terms of whether it be better have a vote before or after the election. So. It's it's. It's. It's it's tricky but he is nothing if not clever about things like this this is he he? Very early on in his career, he ran for office from a district where he hadn't been resident in residence long enough and he vowed after that, he would never again ignore the rules, and since then he's become kind of a master of the rules, the more arcane the better. And he just he loves talking to the parliamentarian in the Senate and figuring out sort of the the most devious ways to get what he wants. The most sort of obvious pressure here. Just talking about this and I think it's pretty interesting. There's a bunch of folks who are up. In who are imperilled where it's not clear That going ahead with this would be helpful them. We have a bunch of pulling out today showing majority of people oppose it. Those numbers will probably change as they converge towards the polarization and everything else. But like Cory Gardner is down in all the polls and Colorado, he's in a state that Democrats have carried. Now a bunch and plan to carry again Martha. mcsally sally is down a to mark Kelly. You know they're on the sort of aggressor side here in terms of public opinion. It does seem like they've kind of don't care. It doesn't seem like there's a jump together mentality here in terms of getting them to come out whether it was him or not a publicly for those. Well I think. He's GonNa. Be Looking at McConnell will look at each of these races and I think you can almost imagine that he's written off. Gardner in. Colorado, and makes out the in Arizona. So he's not going to change his plan just for them unless he thinks it's going to save them and you'd probably thinks it won't save them and he's already given collins kind of buy in Maine. So it gets you down to the racist that are really going to matter in this are probably it's it's probably Tillis in North Carolina, Joni Ernst in Iowa, and Danes in in Montana, and if McConnell feels that those three or not endangered by going head, he may just gun it. You know and and try try to get I think though that in addition to just thinking about each of these races and how it affects each of the races, there's something else. He's probably got to think about, which is the overall look of this thing if if it appears to the American public that he is one set of rules for Democrats and there's another set of rules he's got for Republicans here, one Senate rules for America and another set of rules for whoever trump nominates at this point, it looks like he's reading the game it looks corrupt. It looks like a naked power, grab an and it's ugly and that could actually create a backlash I think that both he and trump have to think about. It it might really bother a lot of people in this country to think that that it's it's just too corrupt game in Washington. Yeah, I. think that's a correct reading of both where the polls are and the political risks they run and I think it's notable that McConnell has committed to vote but not win and I thought. This was also notable. He wrote this dear colleague later re basically says I don't say anything don't lock yourself into position. Let it give it give us time to work over the coming days. We're GONNA come under tremendous pressure from the press to announce how he will handle the coming nomination for those who are unsure how to answer for those inclined to oppose giving nominee a vote I urge you all to keep your powder dry Dombrowski and collins. Have not heeded that but Mitt Romney said declined today saying anything I know Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania I fully expect will support moving forward. But that that to me, it was interesting because the timing here and the sort of needle to thread is not nothing I think we'll try to do it and the odds are in their favor they will. But because of exactly what you and unseeded from the political standpoint, it's not clear that this is help for them politically in the short term. I think it may not be I. Mean I think also it's going to energize the base on both sides here for and the thing is that when it comes to the energizing the base, the base that needs more energizing really is probably on the Democratic side and you've already seen it happen I, mean look at the amount of money that act Lou raise you know practically overnight a hundred, million dollars two, hundred and sixty. Now it's one hundred and sixty million dollars. Shipping shocking about money. Shocking money an and I think the other thing that it might do is from was doing some reporting two days. I think it may really energize kids younger voters because. You know they were kind of holding their nose, a lot of them about Joe Biden it wasn't an exciting. It didn't seem you now like there was that much reason to do it. Now there's a reason that a lot of young people are GONNA see they're gonNA look they're gonNa see Roe v Wade is in the balance they're going to see a four Bul healthcare act and possibly anything to do with insurance for preexisting conditions and they're looking at the future this is going to. Their. Lives for the this is a this is a decision that has tremendous implications for everybody in the country and it's GonNa be clear and so I, you know it may turn you know help turn out. The Democrats who were young. Six three Roberts court climate. Regulation jurisprudence. A. Favorable to the kinds of solutions. That are necessary. Do you think? Ultimately McConnell himself is up and I don't think he's. He's personally a lot of trouble against say, McGrath at least the pulling now but there are also just a bunch of seats that weren't supposed to be in play that really do seem like they are. There's A Texas poll that has cornyn barely up. There's a Mississippi poll out today that has. Chrissy Hyde Smith a just a few points on Mike espey. There's the Iwa Joni Ernst race I mean it's wild how wide the sort of battlefield has gotten for him to try to hold this thing together. It's it's really volatile and and and the thing is it. What it does is it puts the Republicans on the spot about they've been doing kind of a split that's broader and broader that gotta keep the trump face and and but that's not enough for in many places to get reelected, and so they've got to do is add in. The moderates the you know suburban women particularly and got a candidate here who for a nominee for the supreme court that is truly the choice of the evangelical part of the trump ace it by very much alienate moderate women in the suburbs and in other places especially over things like abortion where sixty two percent of the people in this country saver. Abortion. As keeping it legal and don't WanNa go backwards. So it's it's. It's I think it's a it's it's a it's a it's a risky thing for some ways. You people think it's all into such a gift. Not, necessarily think that's right. Read on the situation Jane Mayer thanks as always great reporting and inside appreciate it. Great to be with you.
'Hard, Dirty Job': Cities Struggle To Clear Garbage Glut In Stay-At-Home World
"This is certainly true at my house. American staying home during the pandemic or eating more at home doing more at home ordering more deliveries that arrive in boxes at home and some cities are struggling to keep up with the trash NPR's Scott horsely reports.

Fear my job is. Take home.

Garbage collectors that means longer workdays and more trips to the dump. Some sanitation workers have gotten sick or had to quarantine. Baltimore's faced a severe shortage of trash collectors acting public works director Matthew Bark says, it's not easy to find replacements. It is just a hard dirty job. It is quite common for someone to walk off the job within a day or two because they just don't realize. How hard the work is there is less garbage these days at vacant office buildings and Hotels Guard says the commercial trash trucks that typically empty those dumpsters are not easily reassigned to residential neighborhoods. We actually use a specially designed trash truck that can fit in the narrow alleys. The contractors don't have that Baltimore temporarily halted curbside recycling this month. So short handed crews can concentrate on trash pickup. Nashville is also making adjustments. Assistant Public Works Director Sharon. Smith says that city will start collecting trash five days a week. Instead of four it'll be shorter days shorter route and much more manageable. Particularly, if the changes we've seen with people working from home continues on into the future trash collection is overwhelmed garbage piles up in the street drawing rats, flies than lots of complaints from residents, Ohio. Garbage Collector Yogi Miller says, nobody wants that they don't realize how much they need until something happens where their trash doesn't get picked up. That's what people want. They want to put it out in the morning and when. They come home in the afternoon and they wanted to be gone. There may be a silver lining to this garbage Glut David. Biedermann who heads the Solid Waste Association of North America says it has led to newfound appreciation for some frontline workers who were often invisible in the past could as garbage day in my neighborhood and mine neighbor has a sign on her garbage and thanking the sanitation workers dimitrius Tar has seen similar signs on his route in Georgia along with a child.

Trump Counters Testimony Of His CDC Director On Vaccines, Masks
"Smith's these are the most important powerful public health tool we have.

Under. Control these actually, we have clear scientific evidence they work. And they are best defense I might even go so far as to say that this face fast is more guaranteed to protect me against Cova. Then when I take a co- vaccine because the image in this city may be. Seventy percent. And if I don't get an immune response to vaccines knocking protect me this facemask will. President trump lashed out at Dr Redfield. Testimony telling reporters in the White House press briefing room the top US public health officials misspoke. Think. He made a mistake when he said that it's incorrect information. And I called him. And he didn't tell me that and I think you got the message maybe confused trump also contradicted the CDC director over masks saying vaccine would be much more effective than facial coverings stopping the spread of corona virus his comment came after Dr Redfield estimated a potential corona virus vaccine might only be seventy percent effective at generating an immune response making widespread massacres critical to ending the pandemic during a town hall event Tuesday on ABC hosted by George. Stephanopoulos trump again downplayed the use of masks. People. Think masks are not good and there are a lot of people that as an example, those people I'll tell you who those people are waiters they come over and they serve you and I have a mask and I saw the other day where they were serving me and they're playing with a mask I'm not blaming that just what happens they're playing with a mask and so the mask is over and they're.

"smiths" Discussed on Andrew Rappaport's Rapp Report
"And in court they were, I'm reading from the history. It says that day in court Joseph and higher were released to await trial on the riot charges, but before the brothers could leave town to William. Laws associates brought complaints against them for declaring martial law in the WVU. They were charged with treason against the government and people of Illinois a capital offense that permitted the men for being released on bail. So, Joseph and hire more confined in the county jail locked together in a cell for the night. And this jail. The Carthage jail is a stone building. It's two stories you walk in the bottom. The bottom part was the quarters where the jailer lived with his family and upstairs. There was a barred cell as well as a debtor sell. They call it, and you would go up the stairs and there was a landing there. You would turn to the right, and if you went straight, you would go towards the debt or sell. That's where they put Joseph Smith in the debt or sell. And the door itself didn't even lock. It was wart Baloch did not work, and so you would think that they didn't really think you'd be a flight risk. Except for the fact that they did have armed guards at the jail to make sure that Joe Smith wooden escape, so even though he could probably walk out of the room and go on the landing, he couldn't get away from the jail and and and flea. But what happens on June twenty seventh? Eighteen, forty four. The jail. Is. I. Guess, you could say attack by a mob, and this mob is coming for Joseph Smith now did they want to kill Joseph Smith, that's a matter of controversy something that maybe they were there, merely to capture Joseph Smith and turn them in because he was wanted in another area of the country, and maybe they could get a reward of that, but we'll never really know because we just won't know that stuff. Is I guess not really available to us to know all the facts there, but the mob attacks the jail and they go up on the landing. And Joseph Smith is being visited at that time by a man named Willard Richards and John Taylor. John, Taylor would later become the third president of the Church and Willard Richards was Mormon Apostle they were visiting at the time and earlier in the day Joseph. Smith was visited by guy by the name of Cyrus Wheelock. Cyrus Wheelock left Joe Smith a smuggled pistol. He got past the guards and he gave the gun he actually says. Does anybody want this and Smith supposedly says here give it to me. He wanted it and he put it in his pantaloons pocket. As the way, it's worded in the history of the church. When this mob attacks! Joe Smith not only has a gun, but another man visited him during the day by the name of full, Moore, who also offered a pistol to the prisoners and Joseph. Smith took that and gave it to his brother Hiram. And as the mob came up the landing onto the landing. The men in the cellar, holding themselves against the door. Because, there isn't a lock on the door. and Th- written I'm I'm giving the story as it is more in history? A bullet goes through the door and hits Hiram in the face and the bridge of the nose. He allegedly falls back saying something like I am a dead man. Now. That is certainly controversial because a person shot in the head in that. Area specifically. Is probably not going to be forming words. Or sentences so this could be romanticized for all we know, but Hiram falls back and Joseph Smith allegedly says something to the effect. Oh my poor dear brother, Hiram, and he goes to his aid. WHO's he's laying there and as justice with gets up from his probably dead brother. At this time he pulls the gun out. The opens. The door slightly sticks his. Our Mountain fires the gun three times. Or an excuse me six times. He pulls the trigger, but it fires only three times. It's an even Allen pepper box, not a very reliable gun at all, and only three of the barrels discharge. as we understand it John, Taylor. Who was there, said Bat. The barrels did discharge hit their marks He was under the impression that two of those that were shot by Smith died. That's controversial Some say that's not true. That didn't happen although John, Taylor never changed his mind or changed his account of what happened that day. But what eventually happens, is Joseph Smith after firing the gun? They tried closing the door. He goes to the window of the jails cell, and he begins to give masonic signal of distress, saying the words Oh, Lord my God. He's shot again at the window. Any falls out never completing what many believe to be the masonic signal of stress, which is Oh, Lord, my God. Is there no help for the widow's son? All? He gets out of the words. Lord my God, and he falls out the window. They propped his body up. They shoot him again and at the end of Joe, Smith and Hiram Smith. That's how he died and yet if you were to take the tour. And I've taken it many many times. They never volunteer the information on the smuggled pistol. I always have to bring it up during the when Acre. Well in in the history of the church, one of the things I always would bring up with people is the fact that they described his death as a martyr's death. Right however, as you just gave the accounting. Assuming, shot is fired in. He's not just taking it lying down. He's not distrusting God. He's actually aggressor you know. I think the way that it words in the history of the church. Berkeley's. He had his trusty six shooter I. Think is how was said, but he's firing he's. He's trying to kill people. That's a good point Andrew. Because, even though let's say nobody died. Okay, because I heard a mormon make this argument, but nobody died. That's a controversy. Go okay, let's say nobody died. Are you telling me that when he fires into the crowd. That's not what he's hoping for. I mean you know fire gun into a crowd unless you're hoping to hit somebody and you're probably going to kill them. Especially with a caliber, the size of that L. Pepper box that he had that gun is on display in the church museum across from Temple Square to this very day. Now before they they modernized the visitor center. They had a different gun on display that they said was the gun Joseph Smith years well. When I saw the new gun, the opened up the after the renovation I went up and ask somebody at the at the museum. Why is there a different gun on display? Well didn't know that there was a different gun, but I did I'd pictures of the old one as well as the new, and they are not the same it's. It's an Ethan Allen Pepper box. But the barrel on the original gun was significantly longer than the barrel on this gun. That is now on display. And I. Had someone from the Church eventually contact me on? That may admitted that I was right at is a gut the different gone, but that the one on display now is the one that Joseph Smith did us. Even though for years, the sign on the other guns said it was the one that was is. But it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter Joseph Smith was trying to cause bodily harm to his attackers. Now if a Mormon wants to say, he was.

"And in court they were. I'm reading from the history. It says that day in court. Joseph and higher were released to await trial on the riot charges, but before the brothers could leave town to William laws, associates brought complaints against them for declaring martial law in the wvu. They were charged with treason against the government and people of Illinois a capital offense that permitted the men for being released on bail. So Joseph and hire more confined in the county jail locked together in a cell for the night. And this jail. The Carthage jail is a stone building. It's two stories you walk in the bottom. The bottom part was the quarters where the jailer lived with his family and upstairs. There was a barred cell as well as a debtor sell. They call it, and you would go up the stairs and there was a landing there. You would turn to the right, and if you went straight, you would go towards the or sell. That's where they put Joseph. Smith in the debt or sell. And the door itself didn't even lock. It was wart. Baloch did not work, and so you would think that they didn't really think you'd be a flight risk. Except for the fact that they did have armed guards at the jail to make sure that Joe. Smith wooden escape, so even though he could probably walk out of the room and go on the landing. He couldn't get away from the jail and and and flea. But what happens on June twenty seventh? Eighteen forty four. The jail. Is. I guess you could say attack by a mob and this mob is coming for Joseph Smith now did they want to kill Joseph Smith? That's a matter of controversy something that maybe they were there merely to capture Joseph Smith and turn them in because he was wanted in another area of the country, and maybe they could get a reward of that, but we'll never really know because we just won't know that stuff is I. Guess Not really available to us to know all the facts there, but the mob attacks the jail and they go up on the landing. And Joseph Smith is being visited at that time by a man named Willard Richards and John Taylor. John Taylor would later become the third president of the Church and Willard Richards was Mormon Apostle they were visiting at the time and earlier in the day, Joseph Smith was visited by guy by the name of Cyrus. Wheelock Cyrus Wheelock left Joe Smith a smuggled pistol. He got past the guards and he gave the gun he actually says. Does anybody want this and Smith? Supposedly says here give it to me. He wanted it, and he put it in his pantaloons pocket. As the way, it's worded in the history of the church. When this mob attacks! Joe Smith not only has a gun, but another man visited him during the day by the name of full Moore. who also offered a pistol to the prisoners and Joseph Smith took that and gave it to his brother Hiram. And as the mob came up the landing onto the landing. The men in the are holding themselves against the door. Because there isn't a lock on the door. and Th- written I'm I'm giving the story as it is more than history. A bullet goes through the door and hits Hiram in the face and the bridge of the nose.

"Which has very glad to be but. Bill! Discuss this the the account of his death. He's described as a martyr. Does. Martyrdom, sit the account of his death Lee. Walk US through. Describe what the jailhouse was because it wasn't a. What we think of a room where he got bars, and there's a window that he can look out with bars in very different. Could you describe that jailhouse and you? How the arrest came about and what happened there? Well okay let let's talk about how the arrest came about because, there's a lot of things that took place before Joseph. Smith Leaves Nabu and Heads Towards Carthage, which was the county seat about twenty miles away? And what happens is the Governor Tha Thomas Ford. Actually tells Joseph Smith after the destruction of the paper that he needs to turn himself in and Ford promised him an armed escort, which never materialized I often wonder about bad. Why would Ford promise that and then not allow him to have this escort will? He didn't really need an armed escort to get to nabu anyway, but still it seems like there were some promises that were being made by the governor that never came about which makes you wonder where they kind of hoping something tragic might happen to this guy. I don't know I don't know, but the fact is is after Joseph Smith was going to be turned in. He flees. He doesn't go to Carthage right away. He actually crosses the Mississippi River and the new book sates talks about this in the chapter titled a Lamb to the slaughter. And it says that after he had fled that later that morning Emma set Hiram Kimball and her nephew, Lorenzo Lorenzo Watson to Iowa, because that's across the river from Nauvoo to convince Joseph to come home and turn himself in now is his first wife. Okay Emma Hale was her name the married they told Joseph that the governor intended to occupy now who with troops until he and his brother Hiram gave themselves up. Quarter this is speaking of Orrin Porter Rockwell who has Joseph Smith's bodyguard. He was later Brigham Young's body guard, and depending on what side you're on, you could also consider import rockwell to be Brigham Young's assassin as well. But Horta returned soon after with Reynolds K., hone and a letter from a begging him to return to the city. Hiram Kimball Lorenzo, an rentals, all Joseph, a coward for leaving the blue and exposing the saints to danger, and this is supposed to be a statement from Smith I will die before I will be called a coward if my life is of no value to my friends, it is done to myself so as a result of this Joseph. Smith turns himself in in according to this history, which is pretty much what other history books have said as well. Five hundred forty three says at Joseph mounted his horse and set off with Hiram than the other men for Carthage. I am going like a lamb to the slaughter. He told them but I am calm as a summer's morning, I have a conscience void of offense toward God and towards all men. And that is a famous line that Mormons tell over and over to China to give you this picture. That he was going to tournament, turn himself in and to be this eventual martyr at cord, but when he gets to Carthage, he he goes to check himself in in a hotel and the local constable. A guy by the name Abed is worth meets him and arrests him and puts them in the Carthage jail, and originally the charge was supposed to be riot for destroying the pretty press. Well eventually, the charge becomes treason now. This is a capital offense. This isn't anything small like riot. You might think this is now. A capital offense makes me wonder Josie Smith is now getting a little bit nervous, and so he goes to.

"So that people can see it on their. That's what so Great Andrew About these Gospel topics essays. Once they started coming out and they came out euchre mentally over about a three year period. Then they came out with some even shorter ones. Historical Gospel topics essays. And what's great about them is you can send the Mormon to their own official website where they can read the same things that I might be saying, or you might be saying, and it's really hard for them to him. I took it out of context or I. Embellish the count the account to make it sound bad. It's right there. In their own material and I have referred people back to their own website. Numerous Times say go read it for yourself. Come back and let's talk about it. And that's that those essays have been great. That was I had to one. There was missionaries are coming, and and soon as I gave them their own documents, they were like They didn't come back, so yeah, so Joseph Smith the the accounting that lead up to his death. And how he actually died. the Church of Jesus Christ latter-day. Saints has a account for this. And the question I'd like to. Ask. Is it accurate, and so could you give us the history of I? The church's account of what happened. And then let's go through the real account. What happened and see if they both lineup? Okay. Let me. Let Me I. Qualify This what I'm going to be looking at or sources that the les. Church has published so that would be their account. Now, there are some details in this. Akao at have been I guess you could say whitewashed over time, but they're really entered the minor accounts, and not really all that important. I think that as Christians. We can talk to a ladder to say about the events leading up to Joseph Smith's demise, just by referring to their own resources, whether it's the documentary his of the Church, which is what they call the blue history because they were bound in a blue hardcover. And there were seven volumes. Very, well, respected history that there. Historians often went to to recap women. But then the church in two thousand, eighteen came out with a new history book called Saints The Standard of truth. and. This is the first of four volumes that are going to be released over time the second ball. You has already been released. And I, I got to be quite honest with the annual I have been amazed at. The transparency or honesty, if you will of this new history book, it brings things out that I think would probably embarrass a lot of fateful latter-day saints and I've said this Eric and I did a series on this book the first volume. I. I often made the comment that if I was not a member of the church, and I was given this by a Mormon neighbor to read about the history of more than movement, I would not join the church after reading it. Because Joseph Smith. Doesn't look all that great in this history, he looks like the a man who was a badger character had a bad behavior made dumb decisions, hardly what we would consider to be a prophet of God, because he's claiming revelations, and then a lot of these things don't happen the way. The revelation said it was supposed to happen. I'll give me an example. It talks about Zion's camp. where the camp of Israel were Mormons were kicked out of Independence Missouri. Joseph Smith claimed he had a revelation from. To raise a small army and Goget that land back for the saints, well, he raises the small army, but he never gets the land back for the saints. They're actually stopped from doing that. will if I was a outside or reading account like that I would wonder what kind of a prophet is this? WHO CLAIMS TO HAVE REVELATIONS? But yet they don't seem to come forth, and certainly deuteronomy, thirteen and boot around eighteen that would be a pretty telltale test of a true or false bar profit. One is what he says going to happen, really happen. And in many. Cases, it doesn't happen. Which would show you that Joseph? Smith was a fraud. But when it comes to the death of Joseph Smith. Really it all boils down to some of the behavior that Joseph Smith was exhibiting in Nabu Illinois, which is a town that you might say the Mormons really built up. It wasn't that it was never there before it just had a different name when they moved in. It was known as Commerce Illinois, and then as the Mormon started migrating into this town, started growing like crazy in some of said, even wrote root rot rival Chicago at the time. And so Joseph. Smith of course is at this time in the eighteen forties. He's starting to marry a of women polygamous. But at the same time, this is not something that's being proclaimed publicly. Only a few select men that were very close to Joe. Smith knew about this. Many of them practiced it themselves secretly. But there were some men who became privy to us that founded abhorrent. And they decided to get together at least seven of them. In fact, I have their names here. They were William. Law Who is a member of the first presidency since eighteen forty one. Wilson Law's brother who was a brigadier general in the Nabu Legion which was like a militia that Joseph Smith had there was another guy by the name of Austin. Cowles, who is a member of the novel High Council. There was James Blake XLII. Who is a seventy now? This is still pretty pretty prominent position in the church. And then there were some prominent businessmen also involved Robert Foster. Chauncey higby and Charles Evans. These guys got together to publish. A newspaper called the Nabu X. Positive. It was meant to expose Joseph Smith's abuse of power and the fact that he was practicing polygamy secretly. and. Because of this newspaper only came out with one edition, it was supposed to be a weekly edition came out one time and early Jim. And Joseph Smith found out about it as you can imagine. He was pretty upset at what these men had said about him. Now he naturally accused them of lying, making up things or embellishing things, which that's very typical when a person has caught, that's usually the first response you know is to say it's all made up, and it's just meant to slander well. That's exactly how Joe Smith. Took it now. You have to understand Joseph Smith was the mayor of with this time, so he has some pretty significant power in this area of the state, so he has a city council meeting. And a reading from volume six of the history of the church, this is the blue bound.

"Is that is very so that that is going to be one of my favorites on the album. This this I'm gonNA categorically say is an album with the back-off he's better than the front indeed interesting. It's funny how things come full circle. Isn't it awful so come out and said Ninety Percent Oregon out of the thirty? This is episode thirty three arenas three albums on the back. Half is better than the front. So it's just a matter of semantics Davis domestically. I am clicked details so that we wrapped in this album right. We wrote this. How could not great great name? I saw some girls are bigger than others factual as well. This is a song about boobs. Pitchfork ten ten album closing song. Let's sing about tits Yeah I mean like some girls are bigger than others. I doesn't what's his team What else what else is this? I about it now. It's a great closer I love it. It's it's pretty It's actually pretty upbeat And I love. It's quite. It's quite monitoring vocal. This is weird bit the salt whereas some stops and then fade out and stop again. If you know and I wasn't sure whether it was like a production issue or walk but some it's a little bit weird. I don't know what they were trying to achieve that. But then when it kicks kicks any kind of real monitoring vocal There's not a lot of classic. Marcy Kinda yelps or found. Sadness bubbles along fades out my slows to our song about breasts. I didn't notice the fighter. I didn't even notice the fight out in the fight. Anything at the beginning I would listen. Attention to detail was never your strongest calling my friend. Who's pod? You should listen and you'll be all. Yeah well it's right. Oh yeah well. He's still remains my hero. The greatest person I've ever met in my life la La la La La etc etc. So what's your what's your what's your. What's your overarching summary? Then of of the Queen is dead. Does it does it. Does it deserve the high praise that it's historically being given? I think that the smiths the Queen is dead is indeed a stone cold classic. I I struggle to go and find any song in this album that I can be a derogatory or negative about. There are some songs of course that are better than others And there are some girls that big on others but For me I would say that standout tracks without a doubt There's a like never goes I? I know it's open. Never had no one ever boy with the thorn in his side. I mean attended US right So for me this is this is this is stone cold classic. I absolutely believe in suspend co classic. What about yourself? No it took me all. I'm I'm I'm conflicted on this. I am. I'm really conflicted. Like oh everyone says it's ten din everyone will speak to you. Said it's amazing of you. Listen TO IT everyone says Roy. Yes and listen to the stern rose and it was like. Actually you're right. Listen to this number of times and I just cannot bring myself to sign. The stern called classic. I think it's good. I don't think this has done called. Classic like it is a great album. I think it was seminal for its time I think I think it it was a start of genre and I think I re I mean Morrissey he is just reminding me of Ain Curtis from Joy Division and I feel that it's all up Kurdish. Yay Good that very monotone invoke with lyrical Powell. And I think that is the strength of this album. I think Yeah Johnny Ma. Very guitarist nor Greg Guitarist Is is not going to age. He's not going to get. He's not GONNA get down in in like a top fifty guitarists of all time. What are you talking about what you mean? He's no he's already gun. Talk fifty the chest. I Talking Lennon. Mccartney Richards Jagger he's it's not it it's it's Morrissey and I think there's more than this slightly Mar I think. Maybe that was the whole contentious element of the band. Also the contentious film in the band apparently is that when they saw the the the record. Deal Morrissey Ma went forty forty split and they gave The rest of the band members at ten and ten split not the best way to run a four person band in my humble opinion. I think it's GONNA BE SPLIT. Twenty four ways And so I think when you do something like that you'll you'll you're you're on the right value. Your band's going to break up no one's ever going to be happy But I think the I think the the album is Is Great for its time because it's very anti everything that was out there. It's very much a song of the every man someone that everyone could attuned to and Lavin the fact that he has such Lyrical strength and He's able to draw on on different. Empathetic personas. In and fond points of view for other people Just makes him so much more appealing to everyone but looking back on it now and having not lived through that? Tom Just pointed really hard to sit to to find What's are like isn't an album that I I want to go home to and on. It's not like it's it's it's just no. I think it's a very good album.

It's it's interesting that that's that's the song where it's called the tipping point and from there it really ramps up and and from from five own woods confidence sheet song on on there and I just think look yeah. Truck never had no one ever. It's just the weakest album. Sodas Sheet Song. Okay is is a is an essay. Say we need to figure out fuck an SEC is because we're always changing. I is it. Is it an album where you count on their tracks over like? Is it just an album? This time. This is an album. That's great for it's time for number of reasons. So is it is. It is an essay. Cnn album bigger than the sum of its parts in that regard orders all the parts have to be as amazing as h over to be an SEC. I think the I think the CO at its core the ethos of the. Sec was Was that there is that you cannot find shit so many albums like if you if you feel that there is no shits on this album Then it becomes an SEC. Now as I've said that there's a couple of songs on here. I like the current to to the not not solve as a ten hour ted. But it's not. It's all five hours. I don't think it's a great song. You know th the whole point of an SEC. Like you and I are able to patients on so he says this is. This is more problem with that with that definition mess as a revolver with yellow submarine is not an SEC. Saad Hottest Club. Bain weighed Octopus GARDEN WAS. It is not an essay. A I mean there's every bill album has a ringo song Well no but we agreed that it wasn't a stone cold coffee because of Yellow Submarine. Right we had we had. I initially studies can then we we. We ended up deviating from it because of yellow submarine so didn't become a stone cold Anyway I tell you what this is the homework right between now and the next Paul. We we've got to figure out but I pulled thirty four. What we consider a stone cold concept to be. I haven't I don't even have deviate much from my original and then we have to put this poll. This has got to be a Paul. All right. Well let's do that wasn't on Sergeant. Pepper's the sorry I'm just looking Haji. Peppers track listing. Now okay okay. Oh well let let's put it to a poll and in the meantime that is that concludes the Smith. The Queen is dead. Thank you to shoot L. Underscore Scorpion might thank you so much. I like what allege yeah absolutely. I've got absolutely no idea how he found out about us. shooting in but an absolutely nomination. Yeah Yeah we'll make sure we thank you tag him on social media and stuff so so next time so next call so the next Paul as recommended actually by the husband of a of a lady that works for me And he's he's offered to do the debut album by a fairly iconic hip hop group out of the. Us came out around the mid eighties. So we'll talking into that of the next To be unraveled in the massively familiar with them. I mean I know them but I'm not massive. Be Familiar with them So we're looking at getting Tonkin to that will be Po- causing them to thirty Ole We hope to have that up. Recorded Fatty soon. Fantastic Conway get stuck. Who Bit of hip hop any any more comments on this part? Now my buddy went done. It's good Morrissey peace out say ninety by..

"That was never had no one ever from from the smiths. Love it I mean we. You know the it didn't actually sound like you loved it that much very much you very much. As a matter of fact cool love it moving on the full of what the big when when I so. I viewed by phone Basically I just shoot I for a minute. So I'm imagining. What were you play? And of course I know the songs somebody come back in and you're already ladies and gentlemen people of the Globe we've just made us. She'll snippet of never no one ever well. All what you think about. Yeah like trackside is kid. I'll give me a break. I love it because it's going come full circle. We'll talk about it again later on. I'm sure but But yeah through. The tempo picks up. Oh the whole the whole album peeks out from me from from track full are just down until four and then suddenly it's like they had a red bull they had a can of Red Bull and I've gone from this point on their own by you send interest in the years what I picked up in lives and second on the album. Lorcy loves coaching or mentioning Films House all his poets writers and and he and he doesn't special here and so you launch into cemetry gates which which is much more updates Any references references gates. And it's big mind strikes again and he talks about Joan of Arc told very fast paced. It's all very Accelerated versus the songs the songs before it so it. It just takes a different direction and an any kind of needed right. Because there's two or three leading into a you know as we covered a pre of Pre Morbid so you Kinda. You need a bit of a pick me up and for me. It's his mar- cakes in while this is where Johnny Martin new musical abilities kind of you know a better illustrated than on the first the first sort of three or four songs of the album. So I kinda like this direction. Post the Morbid Morbid nature of song leading. Yeah I I agree. I think if you if you if you're listening to the the first of the album you'd be you'd be very well inclined to say well so after three or four songs but then when she st with the back half of the album is stronger than the I. I think it's amazing. I think finally fondly we get to a more upbeat song Track for live But it's about cemetry gates. I mean there's still Morbid Morrissey fuck. Let's run song about a cemetery but but falling the tempo is there And again yeah. Like I am not sure whether he figured himself as the Oscar Wilde of his of his generation Basically he's quoting as you said all the poets in there and then bigmouth strikes again That's on everybody would know that it was the lead single from the album Very positive very upbeat I think when they recorded this Morrissey it actually started wearing a hearing. I wouldn't performing Because they had a fan A hearing impaired fan. Who would add more? Basically right saying I did it to show the fan at deafening. Shouldn't be some sort of stigma that you try to hide. So I I think I think I think he actually has a huge of empathy I I decided. I think it's still a very sarcastic song But he's very being very sarcastic. The people who criticize him. He's he's the big mouth. He's quite outspoken But Yeah I think the amount of empathy that he shows in this And Enteritis performances at this time To shy about the man that he is. I know that you talked about just trying to Google that see whether td had made it off whether it was actually information but assigned to accurate to make that up. So so that's interesting. You won't go learn something today so we had a big mouth strikes. This is the lead single. I think if you're looking to listen to the album this year. This is a song that you would That you This is This is track. Six off dismissed. Acquaintance dead too long Navy game track.

"They recorded this album with Stephen Straight through. Just by chance we've covered a few times in the last few pods. Because he produced the cranberries album produced extensively with blur I most Israeli most known Chris work with Nixon and blur and he talks about the kind of the sentiment around around his time. Really and and I think you know I read a quote. The the Morrissey Hud sorry Marcy. The mall made that About never had no one ever. It's sort of personified the tone of the recording that the more the Mormon element more with nature of doubts when he said it basically -cation for the time that we recorded it. You know women's particularly happy band There wasn't a huge amount of communication going on except for the time that they needed to record with each other And so so. You Know Morrissey the Tom. Your Age to be honest and bitter miserable Twat but if you look back at their their live performances you know and things like top of the pumps you know we. He had an energy to these two. So you know wallow onstage. Move around a little bit you know. Carry a bouquet of flowers time. This big Chris. The Marcy Quiz is a is a question that I've been trying to achieve for thirty nine years and failed on every level So the guys just but you know the thing about Morrissey is is that you know. He's got an incredibly incredibly dark sense of humor Either very very funny character. If you look at some of the interviews particularly some of the interviews he's done during his solo career He's very funny. You know and I read his autobiography a few years ago. And I piss Larry's I mean it literally is like a laugh. A minute hilarious. I mean he's just so doc about people and he just doesn't give a shit and I you know he's GonNa be any better. He's gotten older. He's just become slightly more Slightly more talkative and slightly more. Even more upfront. Benny once was but a lot. Well I just feel like more at Morrissey has almost become the person he said out not to be as well. I think lightly. There's a lot of talk about Morrissey He he he goes in. I mean He. He actively supports a FAR RIGHT POLITICAL PARTY. Where even nargile garage has gone out and said that that pies made up of Nazis racists like that's and that's saying something and then Morris he's coming out there and he's wearing t-shirts forming like fuck the Guardian and stuff like that and he's he's become He I think he's he's alienating or he's he's leaving some fans Questioning I guess where he where he goes in and but I mean people can change. Don't want us to stay the same forever but I think Morrisey as always had a fan base in the eighties. That was very political Very very political in these movements anaemia lyrics. And he's he's taken stances in the last five to ten years that are almost at odds with what he was singing about in those mid mid mid early eighties And so I find that. He is very outspoken. Very vocal And it's striking an interesting chord with their fans and it's almost a case of exactly the same thing that we spoke about Jack In terms of okay you go the artist and there are and you've got themselves as a person and where do you reconcile it because I think a lot of Morrissey fans out there probably struggling without at the moment and they're saying okay well a love? Morrissey loved what he did but I'm struggling to reconcile what he's like as a person and where where he sits at the moment Yeah it does it does. Is that something that resonates with you being a bit of a you know. You're you're more close to him than than I am. But where do you is? It is it I I think I think I think kind of what you say is the become a victim of his own. Solve this somewhat disdain. Right I mean like okay. So here's the thing right so Morrissey nine lives in Primrose Hill in north London which is one of the most affluent pockets in one of the most doctoral of the thirty two boroughs of London. You know e e sort of you know. He doesn't play anywhere that serves meet ECON economic any point walk off stage or counselor GIG GIG here a couple of years ago and I missed it because I was fucking in Sydney for my best mates wedding in how. Oh Zee saw the birth of my second child but But Yeah so. The story goes another guy put on so he basically has a venue in Hong Kong. Which is it's an okay venue but it in pure Hong Kong style. It's it some above a shopping center within the shopping centre. The McDonald's Morrison Rides on the Thursday afternoon for soundcheck and suddenly goes under the McDonald's. I'm not playing. I'm not. I'm not doing the tonight. And they're like why because McDonalds and may serve me. I don't play any venues that serve meat and Now like right shall we go. Four thousand people come in You know it's three hours before the doors open and I'm not doing the cake I'm not I'm not GonNa play that so anyway. Damage Control Kicks Off. They eventually and basically Morrissey was traveling with one person. Someone from his record libraries manager whoever and damage control they eventually convinced into to play the GIG. He played the Gig then at the end of the year. Morrissey put on his blog a top ten dates that he played the back year. The Hong Kong sequence number two which annoyed even more because as I said I was sitting in my best friends wedding of but you know he unpredictable and can be incredibly difficult he he. He has a new record like every other album. Because you know the record label piss him off vice versa. So he's constantly going from record labels record label. Thought they're awesome hard coal fans either. He is still selling out arenas in the US and there are some proper proper hog co Morrissey fans that but he seems kind of indictment towards them but ease. Sometimes they'd like. It's kind of underlie underlying tentative atrophy. When it comes to Marcie and I think you know you never quite know which Morrissey you're gonNA YOU'RE GONNA get democracy that comes on and does an entire set of just Morrissey songs and then you know Smith Song. Everyone's kind of on what? If you'RE GONNA fucking pay on ninety five percent of the reason I came or you get Morrissey the comes on and does ninety five percent Smith songs and in five percent Morrissey. You just don't know his sadness lychee change every night so I don't know what I don't know whether it comes from And he goes through. Vandenberg like goes through hot meals kind of thing. He's an interesting. How to famously celebrate doesn't drink completely Tito Generally likes to take show off at the end of a GIG. It's just the guys if the fucking he's just a mystery the Nikola an absolute addict so we should probably talk. The Queen is dead. I've also been meat free for five days. I have as well as something. I'm GONNA come with Marcy at the moment I watched. The game changed on Netflix. The other day and Thirty it's not it's not the you're celebrating this fucking two things in common not drinking at the moment now. I am drinking drinking between Friday and Monday insane. Oh mate fray it's like it's more on just steering away from it. I've I've actually come away from staff lunch or heads and Prosciutto so it doesn't doesn't really count yeah. It didn't last long so artsy Karaki into the Queen is dead so I look I mean. Let's let's do what we normally stay right. Let kind of Skim through it. From from top to toe General feeling on on the Queen is dead for me. It's it's it's great my joy it but it stops quite fittingly with the Queen. Is that some of the Queen's head which is is kind of really fast paced drum beat of the stop because they're gonNA and then it kicks in. I remember the first time. I heard the Taliban. That song did nothing for me now. I think it's a really great intro. What are your savings? I accept what the same authority starts the LITTLE DVD. It starts off with almost a little Spill that he's pulled from that fifty s or something like that and then go to the nights. I are rolling drumbeat before the guitar skiing like I really enjoyed it. All authors a really awesome. It's a it's a great track to kick the album off and then and then rolled into frankly Mr shankly Which which. Interestingly enough is Is referencing a real wife disagreement? The band had We had someone at the time. Well I think Morrissey was upset about the deal that the band were on and Basi made this wrote this song Making Fun of a guy called Geoff Travis Who is basically you know the due to the record label and discussed it as a letter to the fictional Mr Shankly so but sometimes I'd feel more fulfilled making Christmas cards with the mentally ill It's very tiny shake as fit It's it's it's a fun. Little Song is sock. Hasim is Roth throughout it. Yeah it Kinda. It's the first restauration area early on of Morrissey. He's kind of sense of humor You know your flatulent pain in the ass. I mean like like that's allergic in Morrissey in Smith's on like who else is gonNA come up without. I mean this is what I love about it rice. It's just you know it's quite a puppy song It's a complete piss. Take you say that sarcasm shines through I'm referring to someone who's a flatulent pain in the off is just stroke of genius and You know it's it's a great so of intro and your sense of humor and then and then what is you. Track three and track four track three being. I know it's over. Three being never had no one ever which pretty Morbid Downtrodden live half empty condo. Softens Really Morbid in this well saying before I think the first half of the song insist there is an Iraq. Ching theme Bet Loneliness And I don't know whether that's what Britain was locking them in the early eighties He's stories about you know the Mons collapsing and things like that and And stuff like that. But it's just it's a very. It's a very lonely place to feel when you're listening to these first four songs and listen to them thinking what is this. This is odd. Odd reflects life Is this what it was like Back in England in the early eighties and eight there. There's moments moments lot in them but I feel that it's it's on the after the songs that it it it. It kind of picks up but definitely tracked three truck. Three are now it's over. It's very somber and a very lonely. So I'm GonNa look I think for the main. The highlight of this album is Morrison's lyrics uneven listening to this album or if you're going into the album you've really got to pay attention to those lyrics it's it's It's Janus off. Look I I know that Johnny Ma gets a lot of credit. I feel that I feel that Morrissey the contribution that Morrissey makes to the Smith is disproportionate contribution that Johnny Mountain Bikes. And that might be controversial for some people but I think that the what he brings lyrically Is almost irreplaceable. Yeah I think I think that Morrissey lyrics and kind of Have I shown modern musical contribution We should you absolutely should be joining Mommy. You look at some of the lifts over the every need production too high. Sudanese now is truly truly iconic Going back going back yes. Eighty-three was a horrible place to be You know I have kind of vague bake memories but not mild with police officer. You Know He. He was He was died of the miners strikes nearly eighty and I remember him telling me when I was. Kinda you know slightly older and you know was Austin questionable question. How how terrible it was. You Know Margaret. Thatcher was in power eighty. She's the shit time in the UK and that comes through very obviously an on. I know who I like it. Real gentle tone to his voice sounds great. It kind of builds up a bit at the end. That sort goes though does no ebb and then you never know which is which I think is for me. It's one of the highlights album..

"You know it's there. There's a whole long list list of items that get better under democratic administrations as opposed to Republican ones. And they'd never you know but the price and in what people have to do the problem is the historical context has to be repeated as often as events of today do because otherwise these people just lose sight of it and and what you're saying as true as it is but unless it's repeated every time that that somebody gets out and says oh the Democrats rats are just as corrupt as the Republicans unless something like that is actually repeated. People don't understand that you know. Listen the truth is very obvious. You know and I and it's opposite from the statement that everybody does it Here's here's one last point before we we do need to break shortly. But I I just want to say again that the One of the issue here is that the press get beat up all the time particularly from the right. I mean if you turn on Fox News which is you know. Very heavily watched cable Cable News Network out there. You constantly hear that the the left-wing media that are destroying the country or the enemies in the American people just as the President says and so on so forth. And so there's this constant drumbeat that I as we as a working reporter for more than thirty years. I I I heard all all the time and and you know when one one analogy or metaphor I would use would be safe. You're driving down a road and your the person in the front passenger seat. Let's say your spouse is harping on you all the time about driving too close to the center line. You're going to tend to drive to the right. You know you're GonNa you gotTa Start Heading over toward shoulder just to keep the peace. And just because you know you're getting this constant drumbeat of criticism of hewing too much to the center and and they were really did seem to be this concerted strategy this talk about how the press were way too liberal and all during in this era when this is happening you know there was one person in the national media who had a regular seat on on this week show on ABC who had a regular. I'M GONNA Weekly Column in Newsweek magazine. And it was the leadoff op ED writer for the Washington Post. His name was George will And and you know a major major major player in setting the opinion climate of this country was George will has George wildman mostly liberal mostly conservative. Would you say. Obviously he's a he would consider himself a conservative. I here's the headline my final comment on that. Is You know because the descriptions since you're using as part of the problem this left that's middle this right and it really doesn't hold up and people understand this and by the way the press us is made up of adults and you guys. If in the process he can't stand the heat on just like I'd say to other people get out of the kitchen but It's it's a matter of getting out there and telling people what's going on and over and over staying true to your mission and not worrying arena about who's going to be the latest name. I agree I mean you know and and I say that for the most part. I've tried to withstand EH criticism but I I'm sure that the atmosphere full of it just has to seep in occasionally Anyway Rama I gotta go. I appreciate the call and let's go to day from plainfield. What do Dave I want? First of all I wanted to tell you. I'm I'm my family's from Ukraine and I still have my parents and I still have family that lives in Krakow and family that lives in northern Iran. And I've been on the radio for thirty five years. Greg Hooker knows me Greg Seoul station and I wanted to ask you. You've been through. It said I just turn on the radio. So you've even here for thirty years. I was asking I ask everybody just questions. How many times have you said the name various Touro when you as thirty years you've been on the radio first correction? I haven't been on the radio for thirty years. I worked for thirty years more than thirty years for the Associated Press Bureau. In Montpellier mainly print out that we did ransom broadcast copy. Happy but it was mainly the work that went under my violin and so on was was all for for print consumption. So there's that I've been on the radio as regular host of this show. Oh since March or late February I guess it was a twenty eighteen so almost two years. Now it'll be my second anniversary upcoming a couple of months So let's go to your question again though. I didn't catch the name. You're asking Berry Berry Sotero. I go around asking I. I've done radio for thirty five years on the first person into my same. You understand my family's immigrants. We don't understand your country we know. My family lives in my film. Iranian Kurds Roma and They lived in Ukraine Ukraine. See people getting fused about Ukraine. I was told them my life. I was Ukrainian and No it's a big place like California and my family wandered into Ukraine from northern Iran and my oldest son by some miracle actually found. I don't know why they helped. So that's what I'm saying Ukraine's a very complex issue and I've never heard anybody. Anybody studying Alexis on Ukraine. But anyway I just go around asking I just I'm quite I'm GonNa Hurry this. Okay my answer your questions. I've never I don't I don't know this name. I don't think I've ever invented it. Okay well this is okay on this is all by by the Way Greg O.. Tell You I'm the Guy I go on the radar gun shows your fears. They've and I've told people the Alan Greenspan. We used to eat a golf course when I was a kid on Academy Alan Greenspan. At least I tell you Greenspan's stories and all these things you know what I hate. I hate to tell you the Coming up on the top of the hour here. I wish you'd call it a little earlier but I got to wrap it up because we are in our last thirty seconds here and I want to tell folks that Tune in tomorrow for the impeachment hearings. Dave Graham show. I think we'll be back on Friday and have a great day everybody..

"From the press pray and you know. Listen this isn't personal but I do think you're one of the people the blame for it along with many others who at like the The national and local press has never had a position that it's taken can on on issues throughout the history of this country. And if you go back to probably person who could be called one of the granddaddies of Modern Day Newspapers the papers. Benjamin Franklin used to actually write letters to his own paper under a pseudonym just so he could go after his political enemies without put in his own name to wait and the press has not gotten any better about this since then and even in the news coverage and if there's been one major failing or no not not one there's been multiple major feelings in the press but if the biggest one is probably the lack of trying to provide any historical context for what gets reported on on any given day and leads to this attitude that Oh this is what's happening today and nobody's thinking about well. How did we get to the point? We're this is happening today. And when you try to have that discussion. The press is absolutely incapable of getting into that discussion. BECAUSE THEY WANNA keep well. This is what this person said. This is what another person said. But there's a history behind our politics of today trump. The Republican Party is not the trump party. It's the Republican Party. Trump is part of this Republican Party. And what they've been building up over decades of time period and by the way I'll say the same for the Adama crafts because they've been such a bunch of weaklings I call them surrender monkeys that you know they built. They've helped get us to the point where we're at two you and people have to understand this is what's so important about these impeachment hearings in that over the last half decade where we've seen extreme amount amount of power gets shifted over to the executive branch of our government. We need legislative branch. And frankly I don't care if it's Against the president is it and I like or former president or against the president. I don't like we need a congress. It will reassert itself because historically they've given up so much power we we have seen a suffering because of this and when people look around and say Obama was acting like a dictator. Well you mentioned in your press he was trying to shut down the leakers big time. So Yeah Obama did have as bad sides and we never got to address it Because the Democrats and now finally we have somebody they they just push it to such an extreme. Maybe we can address. You know protecting understanding that our governments for ourselves but anyway the main point I wanna make just historical oh contacts you one caller called in about the Powell memo. You know having these historical context and presented regularly in light of today's events. Well I mean that's that's one of the reasons why I I. I think it's important to look at. The statistics related related to criminal convictions by administration over the past fifty years. This is what I'm talking about a couple of times on the show recently and And and you know and I think you see I have a very good friend who said to me repeatedly over the last couple of years both sides do it. They're equally corrupt. And and if you look at criminal criminal convictions and and again. I chose that category not indictments not not charges made by people. But this is an independent judiciary right either. The person pleading guilty and admitting they did something wrong or or an independent judiciary the courts determining that. They've done something wrong and it's more than a hundred to ten And you can look at the economy's I I mean I don't care how you want to measure it. You look at any part the economy whether it's national deficit National Debt Wall Street returns.

"Official word from. CBS News about their plans their coverage plans for this week and it looks like tomorrow Wednesday Wednesday and Thursday the three days of the impeachment hearings upcoming Get to be really riveting stuff I think. Especially when Gordon Silent is testifying about his Phone call thinks restaurant and Keith to president trump and several other really interesting witnesses upcoming as well and some of them some including Mr Sunland he of course is the Ah Embassador to the European Union. Who got himself involved in some of the Ukraine dealings earlier this year And we'll have some important stuff I think to say providing he's truthful and so on Anyway these hearings are going to be broadcast live via. CBS On wd next three days all three three days starting at nine. Am and let's see. CBS is talking about them going into the afternoon. Each occasion I think that means means yeah. It looks like it. Looks like that means that the Dave Graham show is gonNA take a break but That's okay I gotta get a painting project on at home so we will We will Maybe get some of that done this week and one moment. Pardon me we Continue into our final hour of the program this morning. I'm one of the folks to weigh in here about what they heard last week. From from Mr Taylor Mr Ken on Wednesday to State Department officials William Taylor now the current Sort of acting ambassador in Ukraine. I think I think official titles Shares of the fair or something like that which basically means he's in charge of affairs as they sometimes throw some French at you and that diplomatic core but the Mister Taylor was testifying along with George Kenton of the State Department official on Wednesday Friday very interesting stuff with Marie Ivanovich the former the former Ambassador to the To cave to Ukraine and she was ousted from that job back in May She says after a sort of a smear campaign launched against her and carried out by a A Rudy Giuliani that president. Trump's personal lawyer and She was very compelling witness. I thought on on Friday. I mean I was watching with the hearings and boy it struck me that the The Democrats that have sort of prosecution here in the House could not have asked for a better witness She was poised careful and it was on the moments when she seemed to be invited or had an opportunity. This kind of go out on a limb him and Perhaps say some things which were more speculative or more critical she resisted. She was just the facts Ma'am and it was Quite an impressive impressive performance by Murray Ivanovich And as I mentioned the hearings resume tomorrow. Nine o'clock each day on broadcasting live here on WD Dav And I'm curious to know we got about twenty minutes to go here and they've Graham show and I want to open the phone lines and ask you listeners out there to tell me what you make of what happened last week. What you expect to hear this week And the phone number here in Waterbury two four four one seven seven seven. The toll free number is one one eight seven seven to nine one eight two five five Is this whole thing a sham. Do you think it's just basically a democratic Life performance playacting here in trying to gene outrage where none is deserved at Cetera. A toward this president. Obviously he's not had been the favourite of most Democrats in Congress or or at large in the country in the last three years that he's been in office and so maybe maybe that's the best way to view thing. This is just somebody saw an opportunity to watch what they hoped would be the final fatal attack against against this presidency and That's certainly something we hear from a lot of commentators on the in the more conservative media out there And so I'm curious to know what folks think about about all of this Once once again two four four one seven seven seven or one eight seven seven to nine one eight two five five Meanwhile you know it's it's interesting when something like impeachment hearings are going on that how the news becomes dominated by. Hi this one sort of narrative but Other stuff has been happening and Other you know some media there are some reporters who aren't assigned to cover these areas. They you gotta figure out something else to do. One thing and outfit called Marketwatch did they. Actually went and looked at some of the economic indicators. As I mentioned this briefly back around the top of the hour I think but I think it bears looking at a little more carefully and the The market watch piece especially especially was talking about you know looking at the performance of the economy since president trump came into office. He is talked many many times about how it is the the strongest economy ever. And it's a truly remarkable thing that he's been able to do with the economy a lot of a lot of President trump supporters are are buying that and and And they really They're really calling this his strong suit etc And they think that his is the the trade disputes with China are going to end up being being a good thing for the US economy and trying to reverse some trends that the that the In our in our trade situate our foreign trade situation the market watch which is an online publication of looks looks at At the economy at the markets. I think you you would understand from its name has been doing some analysis on economic conditions and Now one thing that you've got to say that the the stock market the Dow Jones Industrial Hit A new record. High on Friday surpassed the twenty eight thousand bark. That's that's a very very strong performance. And if that is the the sole measure of of the economic performance in the United States of America. You gotTA say boy. Things are booming German and But then there are other other issues in the economy's well For instance How how are we doing on providing jobs for folks and Here's a His really looking at a very interesting chart in Market Watch The the job performance formats here. This chart indicates is following the trend. That was in place in the mid teens of this decade and of course we had it different president up through up through twenty sixteen and According to this market what watch chart there's a line here for Reported number of jobs obscene millions and number of jobs if the previous trend had continued the previous trend of course being the one that existed up through two thousand sixteen and the line signed for the previous trend. Continuing is actually slightly higher. Just a bit higher Not not remarkably so but Then the line for actual job performance points since two thousand sixteen job growth performance. I should say and so that that to me is quite interesting. It says that that This is not really been A giant transformation of our economy is as some people have tried to paint it including. I think it's fair to say the President of the United States Donald J trump and You you know I I. I think that you've got a measure that also against federal spending in the efforts to stimulate the economy that the president is put in place The the big tax cuts at the end of two thousand seventeen Were it was said designed to stimulate job growth in the country It looks like we could have done without them. Frankly and And the country would have been just about where it is in terms of actually a little better in terms of job growth. So I don't know I think that there is some some reasonable symbol skepticism. There I have another another area where I wanted to explore a little bit but I'm GonNa take a phone call here from Rama. I Rama from Williamstown. Good Morning. Hey Good morning if I had a trillion dollars that I could just borrow and throw out into I economies. It would look look like a trillionaire wouldn't I I. That's it's interesting. You bring that up. Because that's exactly the point. I wanted to get the next is that is that normally. See The old style Keynesian economics the government. uh-huh spends a lot of money when the economy's doing poorly I mentioned this on the show. Pre listen closely. I'm sure you've heard it. And and here the the government the chief you spoke to the government the president of the United States is telling us the economy's booming more than it ever has before in American history. So why do you need a trillion dollars worth of stimulus. He allies anyway. That's all I mean. Basically that's that's what he does is is live. So you know I. It's it's what it is it something helping people. I think are finally coming to an understanding and I would look for to him actually having some courage in his life for a change in showing up in front of the a House Committee for the impeachment hearings so he can be questioned under oath. The one well Oh you listen now. He's not the one that started already. Did all remember this started decades ago and this is really the point I wanted to get to. I was making a semi humorous. I hope reference to Peter Welch his comments last week. Actually actually the Jim Jim Jordan reference. But go ahead. You're not interested in their cutesy little comments decades ago. But you know listen. This all started decades ages ago. But what I really call Dope Abou was a bit about the press. You've been talking about earlier. And and how the press started doing different coverage over the decades each and started trying to put in this phony you know we gotta give both sides equal airtime and how it and it didn't really work out that way and there seems just to be this constant push by people.

He's the secretary of the newly returned to Secretary of Human Services for the state of Vermont and one special aspect of mice careers. He used to sit where I'm sitting right now. It was a host of the Dave Graham. Show wd EV. For for two or three years old. We'll get these specific dates when Mike joins being just a moment but Wanted to you. Go first to Steve Futterman. CBS News we hear his voice a lot on the top of the hour and bottom of the hour news breaks here on wd and it's really great to get talked with with him. One on one Steve Good Morning. Thanks for joining me. Great to be with you. Hey let me check in with you. I just wanted to kind of get a preview of coming distractions or whatever recall that The impeachment hearings resume tomorrow. They go Tuesday Wednesday Thursday this week. That's right there will be eight witnesses testifying this week and up. I think they're going to be interesting. Witnesses of I thought last week. Catch some interest as well but these may actually be more interesting in the fact that some of these people may talk about about more firsthand dealings. They had with some of the issues. Involved you may recall that one of the Main things the Republicans tried to show so was that many of these people did not have first-hand connections with any of the dealings many of these things were second hand And they brought it up quite a bit. We have people closer to the top. I think this week and we'll see what happens. I mean obviously we know the tactics that are being used by both sides and We'll see what they can can do. Will there be anything new coming out. That's hard to say Much of the information that we heard last week was things that hit emerged before through either syrup leaks or the transcripts that were released from the closed door hearings. I the the the one one witness they seem to be generating a lot of headlines. Already one of the upcoming with Gordon Silent. He was on the he was on a on the phone with the president. We're told From a restaurant in Kiev correct correct. That's right now one thing that's interesting about him is that he's over to Europe while to Change Your testimony at times it may sound strange To your knee me but you are allowed to change your testimony. He has changed his testimony from the first time he appeared before the closed door hearing he adjusted his testimony only to revise it. Just say well on this issue I was on and the thing that he was basically talking about that he adjusted for was. Did you ever hear the president talk about a quid pro quo. Initially he said no and then later on he seemed to indicate that he has heard a quid pro quo offered by the president so that could be just went and brushed up on his Latin. I don't know but Oh yeah did you ever write I. Now I know what a quid pro quo is. I can but he also didn't mention even even even in the second round The July twenty sixth phone call from the restaurant. Whoa yes like? We did not even know about that until last week. So maybe he wasn't even questions about that so interesting for them as well. I think you got a question about you know. was there anything else you needed to tell us. Certainly I mean he got a pretty good invitation. You should whether whether he's not taking it as as he might have is going to be open to any culpability. I don't know we just have a couple of minutes left. I wanted to run a theory by and see what you think about it. I've I've often wondered whether this idea of getting dirt on Joe Biden or hundred Biden would be worth so you know basically risking your presidency over. I mean it just strikes me as pretty right pretty small price. Yeah looking back at it. Obviously not I mean Different people different ways. There are people who think it's I've heard. Republicans who support the president say. It's not such a big deal what he was doing doing your allow. You know. It's all part of the the the the though the gamesmanship of campaigning. The fact that you had a foreign country involved though and and the fact that some people feel that that was what was being offered. There you're going to get the military aid the the military eight the US. If you help us that bothered lots of people but of of course looking back and it probably not the best idea. This and Could the bigger prize slot problems. I mean I just I get this question. Could the the bigger prize really have been making Putin happy. Because imagine if you if you end up cutting off the military Ukraine that would fit right in this pattern of. There's is an hour Russian flag flying over a former. US based in Syria NATO's been greatly weakened from the very beginning of the trump administration just by his comments and his sort of you know very apparent lack of lack of support. I mean in so many ways. He's done things which might be seen as as essentially pleasing Putin and I'm wondering if this could have been part of that same pattern. Oh no definitely I mean when you have dealings with Ukraine yes that can sometimes get involved but I I'm not sure that this was one of those things where He was talking about the nine. The military to to fleas prove obviously Putin with pleased if he didn't get the aid Putin you would think the way putting up his not want a strong Ukraine. He wants to control Ukraine. We we know that. But I'm not sure that I I don't think that necessarily we've seen any indication that that was necessarily the driving gene points for this remember. Giuliani was talking about almost openly. They wanted to get dirt and unbinding was very very open about it at some points. I don't again. I don't know if that was really what he was doing there. Many times what the president has done has been interpreted by his critics and even supporters sometimes as exactly what Putin wants and it's not really in the US interests but it's in a Putin interests. Yes if this it happened if he denied the claim the Yes. There would be some Putin more. But I don't think we've ever heard anything to suggest that that was really the the main reason he wanted to possibly not deny the eight. It did seem that he did want to get some jurors or continue the investigation on the man who at that time and they continue Oughta be because the biggest obstacle to win a reelection if he gets the nomination all Steve Futterman CBS. I I WANNA thank you so much for joining me this morning. I I think I've used up your promise time so I'll let you go but let's do this again. You have that sound hearings. Pollini are very fast fascinating. I'm old enough to remember the Watergate hearings scale and I think if you approach them in the The the right way I agree with the president. You can district person still very interesting hearing well actually one last question on the hearings. Yeah do you know what time they start the next three days. I believe they're going with the start as I'm not one hundred percents believe they're gonNA start like nine eight am nine am. Well thanks for telling me.

He is the The newly returned I guess is the best way to describe it Secretary of Human Services for the State of Egmont Governor Phil Scott appointed him to the job Month or so ago and Mike tells tells me he's been on the job of by three weeks now and Mike. Of course. A lot of our listeners will remember Was In this In the very seat where I am I think for For a while Mike. How long did he do the show here? Two and a half years and a half years open mic. It was called so And he did a really credible job with it and I. It's it's great to have him back. I might and if you got a couple of pointers and ask them one or off the air in a few minutes. So what do I need to improve my quit Instead of we'll we won't talk about that on the ends then we'll talk about this really important the job Mike has Heading up the the largest agency in state government and Mike. Thank you so much for joining me this morning David. It's a pleasure to be here. Dave I really appreciate the opportunity and nothing. Nothing S- well daynuss board has changed. I got a new board pretty sweet. He's got his new toys in there. I can't see wrangled do headphones. We'll see if we can work that out at some point. Sardines are still here. All sorts of things I tell people I take no credit or blame blame for any the interior decorating his office. Because my two hours a day just come and go and I and I really have not had time to paint the place or anything so it would hold your right anyway. Mike You are This is the second tour of duty as Human Services Secretary you. You had the job under the governor Douglas. Back in the mid I part of the first decade of this Millennium Right. That's right in two thousand five. I was originally. The secretary of Administration went over to Secretary Human Services for a year and then came back as secretary of administration and and it was I say this David I I mean not many people get the opportunity that that I have gotten an I. I feel blessed in order to get this opportunity and I thank governor Scott for pointing me because back then it was the and still is to this day. One of the most rewarding experiences that did I ever had is being secretary of Human Services and during that year I was there. We did a lot of things global commitment for example some of the things that are still in place place global commitment. We looked at blueprint for health. We we did vital That year we did the catamounts health. We did a lot of things that were very very interesting. And I just feel Privileged to be back. That's great now global commitment. Of course that was a healthcare scare Adam as well to refresh on what that was. Basically what happened is that the state looking at its Medicaid program in how it it was organized was projecting an over six hundred million dollar deficit global commitment allowed us to get a little bit more cap space. What is called a Cap At the same time allowed US flexibility. In how we could spend it and we in in doing that. We were able to eliminate the a six hundred twenty million dollar deficit. I remember hearing some legislative testimony wants about cap space and I was thinking to myself or are we talking about an NBA payroll i. It's as complicated as that. Believe me. It is complicated is that it is really interesting that some of the issues. I'm I'm dealing with now. Are the same issues that I was dealing with fourteen years ago. Including we're going to have to renegotiate this global commitment waiver which has been negotiated negotiated one time before. But now it's coming up for renewal in twenty twenty one. Wow Okay so that's that's GonNa be a big project Tell me broadly sadly what else has changed about a variety of human services posture in the last fourteen years. Let me The tone has changed. I think two into things if I answer your question directly to things one well actually three things the size of the The let may start with their the size of the agency. I mean it's three three thousand five hundred employees. That's relatively the same when I was here. The budgets bigger two point. Five billion billion dollars has The same departments the was it. What was the budget previous? You know I can't remember it. I think it was like one point seven. Maybe one point a commensurate with inflation. I think health care is really Taken some of that Ah You know growth in into consideration. I WanNa talk about that in in just a minute So you know the department. The agency has six departments Dale DCF director Department of Corrections Mental Health Health and then diva which is the Medicaid portion of of it where there has been a lot of growth in that area and if I had to say one thing that's changed back fourteen eighteen years ago. Thirteen years ago it was fourteen years ago it was healthcare was probably thirty. Five forty percent of my time Now it's probably fifty eighty five to fifty percent of my time to fifty five percent of my time so that has changed the other thing Dave that I think has changed.

It's funny, but, you know, he's aids he'll be back to build and Barnes. I assume in no time yesterday, we talked Tony about the women's soccer team scoring thirteen goals in their game navy excessive celebration. I don't know. It wasn't well a bar headed promotion going on saying, we're going to offer a free shot for every goal. They scored in the World Cup. And after one game they decided to abandon that promotion, straight because people's kidneys were going to rupture. So they, they said every every goal they score you get a shot. They scored thirteen you had a full bar people thirteen free shots. That's the end of that. How do you consume thirteen shots though? That's an absurd amount of shots carefully careful careful way to take a shot. I don't know. Maybe, maybe it was like a like a is it a shot of like a straight bourbon or tequila or could it be like? A like a mixed drink. He shot not sure the, you know, the exact ingredients I mentioned is very high alcohol content. I was soom so yeah. Of so, but I think that if you said people, hey, would you like thirteen shot? Some people would be like, I'll try that you too. I couldn't. I couldn't but other people, they're willing to try, and that's, that's their problem. God bless them, right? So Tony last night, the Saint Louis blues won the Stanley Cup, right? Crazy stuff. So in January, they were ranked dead last in the NHL worst record in the league some guy. But a four hundred dollar bet on them to win the Stanley Cup. He won a hundred thousand dollars last night off of one vet way. When did he put the bed on January when they were in autumn? Yes. Yes, it was blues win it and seven their first Cup ever. They joined the league sixty eight I believe it was he bet when they were dead last, they would win the one hundred fifty to one odds. Wow. But so the story it's interesting, so after they start making this run into the finals, he's getting offers saying, I'll give you one hundred thousand dollars for tickets seventy five thousand dollars almost an insurance policy.

"Sixty. Breakfast Brexit's Brexit, British people who voted to leave the European New York. European union. Hundreds of thousands of people have taken to the streets of London demanding a second referendum European leaders, say Celtic new deal Brexit in two weeks. Time is now unlikely outcome extensions. The Brexit process to the end of Tober at the latest. Three years ago, the people of the UK voted to pull out of the EU. But since then there's been this bizarre baffling series of parliamentary deadlocks deadlines extensions fast. Go after fiasco, the Scottish writer Allie Smith is writing a tetralogy of novels set against this not quite post Brexit backdrop each of them named after a season the third one in her series. Spring comes out this week. I spoke with Smith when the first book autumn had just been published in America. And I asked her to start with the reading. All across the country. People felt it was the wrong thing all across the country. People felt it was the right thing all across the country. People felt they'd really lost all across the country. People felt they really won all across the country. People felt they done the right thing and other people had done the wrong thing all across the country. People looked up Google. What is e u? All across the country. People looked up Google moved to Scotland all across the country. People looked up Google Irish passport applications. And that is Allie Smith reading from her new novel autumn. So this book has all the hallmarks of great fiction. It has literary loses and ideas, and it's somewhat formally. Experimental has epic timeframe over many decades. It is also a bit. However, as they say ripped from the headlines about which we say ripped from the headlines. It's a funny thing writing books, I've been thinking about writing seasonal quartet as it were for books, which will be called simply names of the seasons. But then go to make up a bigger boot for about twenty years and then couple years ago, I wrote a book, which my publisher here in the UK because I was reading really late to deadline that was far gone by the time I handed, and they did it within six weeks. And then I was like you can make this beautiful a book in six weeks so began to think about whether it would be possible. Do that quartet? I've been waiting to do. And then began to think about what it would mean to have contemporaine oval started writing this novel. And as I was writing it we came up to the referendum here in the UK. And you know, it was really obvious that there was a pretty big division coming an came. And so I asked my publisher in the end could I simply have an extra month to attend to the novel to make sure that the novel, I kind of fell would be cheating novel. If it didn't face a contemporary of the country didn't face it. So this was Brexit referendum happened eight months ago, this book came out five months ago. And then, of course, four months ago, we had our election here states, and you know, in some similar ways, I lots of people in the United States are as upset about Donald Trump being president as lots of Brits are about Brexit, which which I guess is good for you book, sales wise, right? Sales. What what's what's really happening? Here is the sense of division, which we sensed Brexit. And then what's happening in the America adds to this. And all of a sudden division is division which was already world ride is so in view, so made visible so striking. Also when one saw the basic outlines of who voted for whom in this presidential election, very similar demographically in every other way to the Brexit vote. I know and all happening as modem or division expedient political division. She sighs. Your characters in autumn, your main characters Lissouba, th and Daniel embody in various ways, these political currents and struggles. But the book is really about their singular personal relationship now to give a flavor of that and glimpse of their friendship. I would love you to read one of their chats the passage where she's eleven and he's eighty something. And they're and they're walking along the canal. Sure, hang on the verge.

It's a program of listening events created by broadcaster and journalist Pauline. Cosmo Murphy, which for music fan can sometimes feel like going to church, and that's fitting because they're always held on Sundays at these events. I learned about an album from artists producers and other smart music people. Then the lights went down the phones went off and the audience listened to the album together straight through no interruptions. That's it. It seems really simple. But hearing a record on pristine vinyl through a world class sound system revealed things I never noticed before the experience was eliminating an often moving even when the needle skipped to bring some of that album worship here to studio. Three sixty were teaming up with CAS for a series of stories called this woman's work, highlighting classic albums by female artists. The title. You probably figured out borrows from the song by Kate. Bush an artist we hope to feature in this series. These records represent women musicians at the peak of their creative powers, and whose influences felt all over the musical map. And this first story focuses on one of the most significant albums of the American punk movement. One that fused rock with free form poetry and drew many into the artistic nexus of New York City in the mid nineteen seventies. Here's Colleen this is arguably one of the most arresting opening lines on a debut album. Jesus dad for somebody sends banana Matton it's deliver with unequivocal power.

It's through me into the nucleus of Patti Smith's thrilling and scary environs worlds away from my suburban hometown to the dirt the chaos and the raw energy of New York City, and it made me feel like I could do anything. In fact, I moved to the city of few short years later. Punk is built upon a DIY attitude and along with the stooges EMC five Patti Smith is considered by many to be one of punk rocks founding mothers her debut album, horses was released at the end of nineteen seventy five a full five months before the first Ramones album. But it Agneta the punk explosion more impersonal, easy, rather than musicality, the album's sprawling free form music and poetry was the until of the three minute three court sound for which punk would eventually become known as the Patti Smith group.

But first I want to remind you that you can keep up with what we're looking at and working on by following us on Twitter at studio three sixty show. And now back to our story as the sixties slipped into the seventies. New York City was experiencing an identity crisis and rock and roll was experiencing a spirituality crisis. There was a general cynicism toward hippie ideals and New York City in particular was more adept at celebrating the individual a cohesive cultural center had not yet replaced the unifying force field of the sixties counterculture movement. This was especially true with music is different. Experimental strains began to fan out and spire by other forward thinking late sixties New York acts like the velvet underground and the east village electric duo the silver apples. Around this time. Lenny Kaye was working in a record shop and doing some writing on the side. And he remembers there were few venues for local bounds in new acts to play. But then he saw poster for the New York dolls and welcomed it as a new chapter in the downtown music. Sing.
