Fox News Contributor Dr. Marc Siegel: 'There's Almost No Spread of COVID on Planes'
"Mark sego is the expert medical expert for Fox News. And on airlines ending mask mandates aboard flights hit what he said. First of all, this is happening Larry I bet because Southwest Airlines is down 16 points over the past month and American down 3% over the past day and they need to rally the stocks in the companies and they're probably down because of all the restrictions. Now, what is the science show? The science shows a Department of Defense study from last year showed that if a mannequin is wearing a mask, just the exactly the right way, it decreases spread on a plane. But the CEOs are making a great point, which is to help a filters take out 95% of viruses. That's right, 95%, and the entire air in the cabin recirculates every 6 minutes. The plane isn't where COVID is spreading. It's in the airport that it's spreading. And in terms of the masks themselves, have you been on a plane lately? They're wearing them off their chin. They're not wearing the proper mask at all. They're wearing a cloth mask, which has been proven not to work at all. I mean, if everyone was mummified and then N95, then they'd stop breathing probably, but that would actually work. So there's no reason that they're wrong about this. I don't see it.
Two Major Airline CEOs Question Effectiveness of Mask Mandates on Planes
"Of America's largest largest airline said last week this week excuse me. They don't believe that the Biden administration's mass mandate requiring travelers to wear a mask while flying serves much benefit. Considering that airplanes have advanced filtration systems that remove nearly all airborne contamination from the cabin, they said. These are commons from American airline CEO and south Southwest airline CEO. They came yesterday during a Senate committee, hearing on the financial support the industry received during the pandemic. The CEO of Southwest said, I'm quoting. I think the case is very strong that masks don't add much if anything in the air cabin environment. It's very safe and very high quality compared to other indoor settings. And the CEO from American Airlines agreed. I concur in airline is the safest place you can be is true of all of our aircast aircrafts. They have hepa filters and airflow. In a study by Harvard's school of public health researchers, corroborated that found that there was a low risk of transmission of the coronavirus on flights.
Is America Heading for Civil War?
"So the question is, are we heading towards a Civil War? Dennis has been prolific on this and prophetic because he said it earlier out loud. We're already living through. And it's just a matter of time before I think we really kind of it catches up to the what is going to happen is going to catch up with our living through, which is when I go to San Francisco, I have nothing in common with the people there. And it's mutual, by the way. Sarah Silverman who calls herself the comedian came out and she said, why are we living in the country with these unvaccinated people? I don't want to live in a country. Why don't they have their own country, and we have our own country. And exactly, and what I just heard from so many people, people just said, yeah, let's do it. And right. And so I just want you to kind of just absorb what has happened in the room here. You have a bunch of people who love this flag. That flag's not going to be around if those of you that just clapped, get what you want. I'm being serious. You just clapped for secession. And so that's a serious thing. That this room's enthusiastic about separating. We're already there, folks. This idea of like, oh, we're divided like you got one side that's demanding the severance and the other side that can't wait for it. And so and you're already seeing it through kind of the slow motion secession that's happening on Southwest Airlines or American Airlines of people that move to other states because they feel they don't represent them. And so who knows how this is going to end up? It could end up in physical confrontation. I think the regime is trying to provoke physical confrontation. I think they want us to get physical, which is why at every event on that and anyone asks me would literally someone ask me rather bluntly and suspiciously bluntly, when do we get the guns? I denounced him, and I said, that's exactly what the power grabbers want you to do. That will give them the Patriot Act two to be able to really seize control over you right now. It's that what they don't want you to do is keep on showing up to school board meetings and be patient and have self control and take back power through peaceful means. That's what they're really
Southwest Airlines Launches Investigation Into Pilot Saying 'Let's Go Brandon'
"So they have this Southwest Airlines pilot You've probably heard of this guy right Who said let's go Brandon before he took off He kind of muttered under his breath And they wanted to do an investigation on the guy Southwest promised to get to the bottom of this They said we will not allow political statements political statements What if the guy had a friend named Brandon I mean is that certainly a possibility Is it not He might just know someone named Brandon It might just want to be saying let's go Brandon But beyond that too beyond even wanting the investigation into the Southwest Airlines pilot for saying that they also said this now They said this was osha ranga on a Twitter who said as an experiment I'd love for a Southwest air pilot to say long live ISIS before taking off My guess is that the plane will be immediately grounded The pilot fired at a statement issued by the airline within a matter of hours See now if you can't figure out the difference between let's go ISIS and let's go Brandon I don't know what to tell you but you're clearly a leftist I mean there's no other way around it You're just clearly a
Juliette Kayyem Triggered Over Southwest Airlines Pilot Saying 'Let's Go Brandon'
"Juliet cam who's a Harvard professor said that passengers on that flight should file complaints with the federal aviation administration because their ears had to hear something they don't like This Harvard person said if Southwest air doesn't do anything every passenger on that flight has standing to file a complaint with the FAA and they should do so Southwest will then be compelled to investigate or defend the pilot Have fun with that No messing around in the air bright line rule
American Airlines Cancels More Than 1,500 Flights Since Friday Amid Staffing Issues, Weather
"American Airlines canceled over 1500 flights over the Halloween weekend blaming weather woes, wink wink and staffing issues. I always love it when these airlines blame weather for staffing problems, and then the people who live in the communities where the weather is, they will run that bad here. That reminds me of the time that Hillary fainted in Lower Manhattan remember when she popped out of her shoe and they threw her in a van and wouldn't take her to the hospital when she was running for president. Hi, I'm glad she's well. But she had a bad morning and I was in New York City just about a mile away. And the mainstream media rushed to her defense. They said, oh, it was so it was so hot. Oh, it was hot. She had heat exhaustion. It was this cool crisp, shattering morning in New York. I was there. It wasn't hot. But the mainstream media figures, you know, the beast figures well, if we lie, people aren't gonna be around. They don't know. They're not there. We'll tell them it's hot. So that's a little bit like Southwest Airlines, American Airlines, canceling all these flights. Oh, it's windy in Dallas. They got some wind conditions. In Dallas Fort Worth, I got a news flash. It's windy a lot at Dow in Dallas Fort Worth. They in canceling 1500

Understanding Religious Vaccine Exemptions With Lawyer Jenna Ellis
"There folks, I'm talking to my friend, Jenna, Ellis, she has a podcast with Salem radio. I can't believe it. We get all the good people. You were talking about Southwest Airlines. I want to talk a little bit about religious exemptions. I didn't mention earlier, you're a constitutional legal scholar. You understand these things far better than most of us. Why for example, and this I find bizarre. According to my friend John murak and some others, all of the vaccines were made with fetal cells or tested with fetal with fetal tissue. So you would think the whole Catholic Church would stand against this, but the Pope and many American bishops have said, no, we're fine with this. That doesn't make any sense to me. I would think that'd be the first place you can get a religious exemption if you're a Catholic. But so what is the issue with religious exemption? Right, and you would think that, but of course, the Catholic Church, and even American Protestant churches have strayed so far from what the Bible actually teaches and from standing on the eternal immutable inherent word of God. And so we as Christians need to make sure that we are always going back to the sufficiency of scripture. And with religious exemptions, we are blessed to live in a country where our founder specifically textually protected our ability to freely exercise our religion. Now, of course, like many pastors, right? Where they will go to the text of scripture, take out one or two words, and then build a whole sermon or a doctor and around it that's actually really different from what the text says. The U.S. Supreme Court has done that with the U.S. Constitution. It will take one or two words call it a clause of the constitution, and they'll build a whole doctrine around it, and it becomes something so different than what the text actually says. So in context, our First Amendment which has the free exercise clause in it and the two religion clauses basically in context when it says that the establishment clause is the other one that the government can't establish a religion, but also that we are protected and freely exercising our religion. It's not just about saying I have a right in this country to not have the government not allow me to go to church, but also that the government can not compel me to participate in any sort of event including a vaccine, by the way that goes against my sincerely held religious
Southwest CEO Never Wanted a COVID Vaccine Mandate but Biden Forced His Hand
"So Garrett here's Gary Kelly, the CEO of Southwest Airlines talking about why the Biden mandate has forced their hand. Let's listen to this together. That's the vaccine mandate. Oh yeah, I mean, there are some that have very strong views on both sides of that issue. And, you know, it's not as I think you probably know. I've never been in favor of corporations imposing that kind of a mandate. I'm not in favor of that. Never have been. But the executive order from President Biden mandates that all federal employees and then all federal contractors which covers all the major airlines have to have a mandate vaccine in place by December the 8th. So we're working through that. We're urging all of our employees to get vaccinated. If they can't, we're urging them to seek an accommodation, either for medical or religious reasons. And my goal obviously is that no one loses their job. So in other words, what he's saying is, Biden has forced Southwest Airlines hands. He said, he says he would like to not have one. I'd like to believe him about that. I think I do. I always try to give people benefit of the opportunity. It may be in this litigious society. The airlines are the people who I know the government makes them do this, too, but they got us masked up in an environment where the air is replaced every three minutes. I think that everything airlines do is to avoid being sued by some rogue passenger who gets a honking flight 1312. I do not know if Gary Kelly would lift the mandate if the government stopped making it. I empathize with any company that does not want to have a vaccine mandate because Biden is making them do it. That's
William Shatner Finally Went To Space
"I've got big breaking news with all hell breaking loose the country going down the tubes, crime, illegals, COVID vaccine mandates, people getting fired, Southwest Airlines. We can all breathe a sigh of relief. Captain Kirk made it to space and came back down alive. All is well with captain Kirk. William Shatner, 90 year old William Shatner. Made it into space. The second, space launch, the Bezos and all these guys do. Here's Fox News's description of the touchdown. What a day for our astronauts. So now our team is preparing landing safety operations and recovery of our astronauts from the crew capsule, will be on the ground at the landing site to follow the action in just a bit. Maybe even talk to the world's newest astronauts. So I'm absolutely breath taking stuff. And I'll note that you're going to see our recovery team show up very shortly because we actually send them out before the capsule has landed. Because through our modeling, we get by now, we're very, very good at analyzing where the capsule is going to come down that way. Exactly. Where the winds are. And so we're going to see the recovery team come out there. And of course, we will also be joined by some of their friends and family to watch as they emerge from the caps. So let's check out these beautiful shots of our four astronauts there in the Texas desert after having gone up over the karman line and back. They're up over the karman line. You couldn't pay me enough to go up over the Carmen line and back. William Shatner's 90 years old God
Texas Governor Greg Abbott Bans 'Any Entity' From Enforcing a COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate
"Breaking last night, and this is a good thing by him, and I think we've been tough, we've been pretty tough on him. The governor of the state that we're in right now, governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order, saying that no one can mandate vaccines. No one. Executive order. Good for you, governor Abbott. That companies can not and governments can not. Now, that's going to be interesting for Southwest Airlines now, headquartered in the state of Texas. So is American Airlines, right? And AT&T and now Tesla. I would love to see all these liberal companies that are headquartered in Texas. Now pay their employees to go leave the state. Because they are worried that people are not being mandated to take a vaccine that the CDC even says does not prevent you from getting the virus itself.
Southwest CEO Says He's Against Vaccine Mandates, Blames Biden
"Southwest CEO, says he never wanted a COVID vaccine mandate, but Biden forced his hand. This is from CNBC. I've never been in favor of corporations imposing that kind of mandate. I'm not in favor of that Southwest Airlines CEO Gary Kelly told CNBC on Tuesday. However Kelly said the Dallas based carrier is complying with federal rules put in place by the Biden administration. So I want to understand. So that is what you can do. The president of the United States can unilaterally announce that all airlines should fire thousands and thousands of competent, respectful employees, and they do it. It's an amazing thing. What are we elected dictator? We elected dictator every four years? Who the hell is he to make this rule? Really, who the hell is he? Why isn't this a congressional issue? I mean, can a president say if you nobody can board a plane if they have the flu? I mean, is there any limit to what can be said by a president? Southwest Airlines CEO Gary Kelly told CNBC on Tuesday. He believes businesses should not impose COVID vaccine mandates on their employees. He said his company is doing so to comply with federal rules put in place by the Biden administration. I just don't get it. How does the Biden administration tell an airline to fire its people? How does that happen? Has this ever happened, by the way, has it ever? I've never been in favor of corporations imposing that kind of mandate. I'm not in favor of that, never have been Kelly said in an interview on squawk on the street, but the executive order from President Biden mandates that all federal employees and then all federal contractors which covers all the major airlines have to have a vaccine mandate in place by December 8th. So we're working through that.
Your Unvaccinated Kid Is Like a Vaccinated Grandma
"An unvaccinated child is it less risk of serious COVID illness than a vaccinated 70 year old? Let me read that again. An unvaccinated child is at less risk of serious COVID illness than a vaccinated 70 year old. Tell me why we are mandating children wearing masks in schools again? The article goes on to explore an article in the Atlantic. That headline of the Atlantic article was, you're unvaccinated kid is like a vaccinated grandma. See, this is why people at Southwest Airlines are saying no more. This is why people are saying nope, not going to do this. You're not going to tell me what you're going to put in my
"southwest airlines" Discussed on The Drill Down
"To change. And it's good to see biden administration pushing for zito adoption to protect infrastructure and do protect her public right to that. I was going to save that for minute. But let's talk specifically what's coming out of the white house right now and how that's translating into orders. What are you seeing. we have had some Kind of i. i'm gonna call it pretty clear. Guidance like we don't usually see from washington clear guidance about what companies should do a private companies should be doing. Publicly traded. Companies should be doing about cybersecurity. Employing zero trust is that turning into orders and indeed azad turning disease killer orders with the federal government. What's up. What are you see on the ground right now. Let's separate two things. Plus let's talk nationals security security of the country then talk with the hold so fussell fall by raising visibility using the megaphone of the president the awareness across all companies that we must improve cybersecurity has gone up every cio every see iso and the boards on asking for how do we secured on companies do be secured on enterprises. I think that's goodness that's everything stocked. Then it comes to securing the federal government. It is true that every agency is looking for better ways to secure their agencies. Z's killer got it's close security platform certified on what's known as fat gram certification. You must have certification before you can talk. Got that you're gonna large sales team serving a federal government. We got tons of activities. Yes we are. We are doing business with federal goldman. You're seeing more opportunities. Though everything in federal takes longer it is actually awarding into real business. It you'll see a lot more often in the next ronnie six to twelve months. So is it stuff that's gonna show up in because it has been now good six months since we first heard this from the by administration no are those. It would seem like that's kind of the timeframe wouldn't if it's going to be immediate action. Immediate for the government might mean nine months. Yes it's big need to happen this tangible activities but as it or two for more tangible engagements than and projects to get started but it looks promising. A glad to hear that. But how does that look different like what happens. What's happening now. That wasn't happening two years ago when there's a big hack making headlines and the federal government of the white house was saying we shouldn't have these things we need to have more security. What what's tangibly different than you're seeing on your end right now. I think foster full concerted effort at the federal government. There's a security office. All these agencies are actually taking action taking steps to the next level so they are products. Been putting ways. They're coming in talking to providers. Like austin say i need to implement zero. Trust here on my gaps. It has been projects need to be done. This guidance on zero tresco provided by involving nist missed is a standards body this hall. You should get our talks coming out of the federal government saying what kind of things should you do if you could hack short. You really announcing it. Should you keeping under the run. I think all those things have good actions that are taking place which are missing before interesting. There've been so many Headline grabbing hacks for longtime now. I always felt that the sony hack was one that affected companies differently. In this case it was just embarrassing. Because you had executives who saw their private emails amount in the world and the indeed costinha sony executive job and had a big repercussions beyond that i feel like and i really mean it from feeling sandpoint that the colonial pipeline hack was just different. It was a different order of magnitude of you know it wasn't the biggest business in the world that wasn't the most impactful infrastructure in low in in the nation but it felt different to companies. I wonder if you're seeing from your standpoint that that hack in particular was one where companies changed their behavior toward cyber security providers. Such as yourself. Coney us started sony. Yes years ago. Then todd it was one of the biggest ones and then right in the past fifteen months solar winds actually shook everyone solar of infosys spy. Janet hack sola winston g. I am using the same software which is compromising. I could be compromised. So that was probably. The highest impact and after that colonial pipeline was big because it directly ties the infrastructure of the country. Where you could say. Gee i mean i could be impacted. So i would say in the past. Fifteen to eighteen months combinations. Colonial pipeline hand solar. Vince made the biggest impact and people are the dialogue has changed the board. Discussions have changed in the past six months. I've been asked who. Common present to several bulbs said on redoing the writing. Should we be doing the right thing. So this level of awareness at the board level. I have not seen the full. It's interesting to in the sort of We have a drinking came in the show i will. I'll say the word so you don't have to drink. But the digital transformation that so many companies talk about almost become a cliche. Whatever that phrase has mentioned on our show but i will looking at the aspen technologies acquisition today and it was just another sign of this dramatic move of companies that exist almost solely in the physical world in in industrial Production who are really engaging in software and a digital transformation. Yes in ways that they never have. Before creating a whole new vector of of of cybersecurity risk absolute and the need to because everything is changing invades interesting. See some of these breakdown motor companies in the past eighteen months. A lot of their business shifted to online people buying online and they needed to change that. A lot of businesses are very pleased amid a change. But that also makes it easy. Bought bad guys to come in steel. On do bad things are so they. We all need to have better. Cyber protection and dad's rear z's could've comes in part of the the growth of z's gutters driven by the fact that digital transformation going on everything needs to be done online. Then there's a cyberattacks papas that. So that's an rebuilt the right architecture which is meant for this new wall rather than the old school vital than vpn's alike so wonderful that you were prepared for this and and have the notion before was as necessary as it is now. But i'm curious what you do to change your organization to take advantage of this opportunity specifically on the sale side. What what have you done to try to change the way. Your sales staff works changed the way staffed period to try to take advantage of the changing opportunity. You know the biggest thing i had to do in the past several years was fight off. Inertia i was often asked by investors. Who is your biggest competition. And they'll name all these legacy companies five all companies and like. I tell them that. Smell the competition. In our shi'as powerful people liked to keep on.

I mean that's stinks. I don't think anybody. I don't think anybody really likes that now. The interesting thing is though. I mean convenience. I've said this before inconveniences. Just super addictive. I mean. I don't think people really think about how addictive it is because we've become so used to it everything. These days is built on convenience for the consumer. I mean amazon. Really got this ball rolling but now anything that you want is just available at the click of a button on your phone and so for a lot of people. Maybe it's a less than optimal viewing experience but for the convenience of it all. Maybe it's something that you're willing to forego and say. Well you know what i'm going to pass on the theater just because this is so easy and i'm still at the end of the day going to be able to see the movie but yeah i mean i think it is dependent on the studios putting out the movies and their relationship with the theaters and then also their relationship with the streamers because they all have to figure out a way to play nice but it sure feels like the theaters are the ones sort of at the. They're moving closer and closer to the bottom of the pecking order here. It feels like and and i. I don't know that that changes. It's not to say that theaters are going away. But maybe when we're looking for large and growing market opportunities. Maybe maybe the movie theater experience just isn't that a large and growing market opportunity. Maybe it's maybe it's just a market opportunity. That's going become more localized to where the demand for that type of experiences. Well it's hollywood.

If loan activity starts to pick back up with interest rates starting to pick back up that loan activity could be a good thing and result in some some boosts that net interest income number that has been suppressed for so long for these banks does feel like given the state of the consumer today and the status of all those deposit accounts early.

"I. I still enjoy it but i definitely don't get the same out of it as i did in my in my younger days. I do wonder too given the timing of all of this given where we are right. Now we've got a ton going on the sports world. The weather is terrific. I just wonder how many people really feel like we'll have all of the options. I have maybe right now. Going to a movie theater just isn't at the top of the list. I mean i. I could certainly see that i mean. I'm sure a lot of people are enjoying join this last bit of good weather before following went to really kick in. So maybe there's a little bit of a timing thing there. But but i think there is. Clearly we're not fully past cova concerns to wear the masses feel like going back to the movie theaters and that's going to be a problem but it is encouraging to see such good global results. The global results are good. I think you're onto something. I mean you look at the data regarding the age of the people who are going to the theater for this film. More than half of them are over the age of thirty five and it's it's eighteen to thirty four year old audience. That really drives those tentpole movies. So i think i think your line of thinking regarding the james bond franchise and who would appeals to. It's less younger people. It's more older people and that data was born out over the weekend. And i think you're right. I saw a stat this morning the ratings for. Nfl football are the highest. They've been in six years. We get the baseball playoffs going on so this could be a little bit more of a long tail whereas there are other movies the opening weekend they do well and then. There's a huge dropoff i could see. I could see this film sort of putting up decent numbers for few weeks here but yeah it's and last thing before we move onto the big banks is. There's another thing you and i were talking about earlier. Nobody's really figured it out yet in terms of balancing the streaming verses the box office. You made the point. The i guess this coming weekend. The next i don't know is that the forty third movie in the halloween franchise like i. It just shows up there but that movie is going to be released in theaters. But it's also going to be released on the peacock streaming service. And i. you know. Maybe that's just another test for you know the people who made the movie but i don't know i i'm. I'm a little surprised that we're this far into the pandemic and nobody's still really sure how to balance theatrical with streaming yet. Yeah i mean they absolutely. The thoughts on the matter are all over the place right. I mean you've got However many days you feel like something should be exclusive to a theater before it can go onto on demand versus the you've got comcast which owns peacock and also owns. Universal will universal. The studio responsible for halloween and so clearly comcast is calling the shots. Here i mean they can just say okay. Well want this thing to go in the theaters but we also wanted to go into peacock in. I did shake so it was interesting. The halloween thing it's going to go on peacock it's going to be available for peacock subscribers for no extra charge now. Peacock is is a tiered subscription. So you have the just that overall free. Then you've got like the five ninety nine or.

Continue to pick up. So i mean south west. That's a nice. That's a nice thing right airline you want the demand but you have to be able to satisfy that demand and there are a lot of airlines out there and a lot of bigger airlines that seemingly didn't have to deal with the same problem that southwest had to deal with and so so yeah they will. They will want to make sure they don't let this persist right. I mean this is something. Where if you continue to see well. They had to cancel more flights. And they're not like you said a little bit ahead of their skis. I mean that that can have some longer lasting implications on on the stock price is is perhaps the grows broke. Prospects don't seem as attractive as they won't wore the twenty fifth film. In the james bond franchise opened in the us and canada over the weekend. No time today took in fifty six million dollars at the box office putting it just over three hundred million dollars worldwide. This isn't mgm film. But you read the coverage of this and it's clear it wasn't just mgm. That was rooting for the success. I mean this really was. This is one of those tentpole movies in the same way. That the top gun sequel. The next marvel movie these are. These are films that are designed to get people in the theater and it's hard to look at this as anything other than at least a little bit disappointing. They were really hoping for more. And when i say they. I mean literally everyone in hollywood. Yeah i guess. I feel like apparently n gm's expectations. This landed squarely within their expectations. Now hopefully they were going in there with more of a conservative tape because it does it does feel it does feel like that's still a pretty light number and that's probably for a few reasons. I mean i. I kind of wonder i. We were talking about this earlier in for me. At least it feels. Like maybe the james bond franchise. I don't i don't know if it's gotten stale or maybe not resonating with as many folks may maybe that's just not it at all..
Southwest Airlines Plays the Blame Game for Flight Cancellations
"This weekend. Southwest airlines has experienced unprecedented disruptions delays and cancellations twenty eight percent of all southwest airlines. Flights on sunday were canceled. An eleven percent delayed so southwest airlines comes out and they blame the weather. They blame air traffic. Control play tape in a statement. Southwest blamed air traffic control issues and bad weather in florida from friday. But the faa said. It's traffic control issues. Were long resolved southwest then released another statement saying after cutting back flights during the pandemic recovering during operational challenges is more difficult and prolonged so they immediately blame air traffic control and weather issues now. Interestingly if you look at the weather map from this last weekend i never knew. Southwest airlines had such incredible frequency of flights through central north and south dakota. They must have had an entire fleet of aarp. It is the cleanest weather map i've ever seen. So southwest airlines had twenty eight percent of all flights canceled american airlines two percent to

"I think that's the right thing to do. Honestly i mean with with airlines really if you wanna grow you have to you have to offer more routes and more flights but what they did in the process of this is they started spreading themselves very thin and i think what this really does is. It shines a light on on air travel and shows how really difficult running an airline could be. I mean it is. It is one of the more complex logistical equations. That you constantly have to try to figure out. And i mean just go to the airport. And you see the arrivals and departures in. It's just an amalgam of like how in the world did they make all of this stuff work. I mean i. It is not just on the airlines themselves right. I mean you've got air traffic control to deal with and whatnot. So i think i mean there are clearly some air traffic control issues in florida and there was some weather issues that that's not that's not a made up. Excuse that is real. I think part of the staffing issue really more relates to southwest's efforts to grow its it's adding of routes and services. They just kind of spread themselves a little bit too thin and then they got hit by a few sort of external factors there. That really made it a very very difficult. Logistics problem probably one that they really couldn't couldn't fully solve and that's what resulted in having to cancel all of these flights. The good news. I think is something that will pass but they absolutely need to make sure that they are staffed up appropriately for this for this growing business if they want to if they wanna maintain that that customer service reputation that they've been able to foster up at this point. I'm glad you mentioned the darden example. Because i think this is something that we see a lot more often in restaurants and in retail where typically at the end of fiscal year restaurant chains major retailers. We'll talk about their footprint. And how many new locations are going to be opening and closing ones and all that sort of thing and some. I know that. I have made the comment over the past decade at various points in time about a given retailer or given restaurant chain when they come out and say this is how many locations planning to open in the next year and my comment at different points in time has been. That doesn't seem like a lot. You know why. Why aren't they aiming higher. And to your point it's like you want to grow smartly. You wanna make sure you're not overextending yourself and you know it's not the sort of thing where you can just snap your fingers and you know throw up a new restaurant and hire a bunch of people to staff it. Accordingly and as you said it might have been the southwest. Got a little bit over their skis. But this is this is definitely something that bears watching and as we head into earning season. It'll be interesting to to see if other airlines get questions about what's happening at west and any comments they make. Yeah yeah. I mean it's absolutely particularly as as you watched the rest of this year. Play out. I mean seeing all sorts of signs i mean i think we're just going to see more and more people traveling right mean. We already point now. Where i think just you know we were talking about this delta. I think last week..

And how james bond did over the weekend and we're also going to get to the big banks that are kicking off earning season later in the week. But i we gotta talk about southwest airlines because shares are down a bit today after. They cancelled nearly two thousand flights over the weekend. Southwest blamed it on a combination of bad weather. Air traffic control issues and staffing problems. Although i will point out other airlines have to deal with bad weather and air traffic control and other airlines weren't canceling nearly two thousand flights. This weekend we talked the other day on motley. Fool money about hiring being an issue..

"Some promise in some trials sort of keeping people out of the hospital and keeping keeping people from getting really sick in the hospital so it's got some sort of promised but you know i. It's another sort of weapon. I think i think what we're seeing right now. Is that you want many weapons as you possibly can against the virus and it's not just if it were just the vaccine that was going to get us out of this now. I like to think so but right now we're swimming in a fairly high number and state of colorado and you know look. I believe in the vaccine. I believe the vaccine's effective but we also have a lot of people that are still getting sick. Most of them unvaccinated. But you've got gotta have a treatment courses sort of help prepare people we just. I mean the goal is to keep people from getting sick really sick and dying. And i think that's really been the the unstated goal from the beginning and more stated as the months went by like the goal is to keep people. I mean we've already had seven hundred thousand people dying this country from cova. We want to prevent as many people as dying because we still have. A lot of people are sick a lot of people in the hospital. And if we don't have a treatment course we don't have a way of protecting those folks like more people are gonna die as well could potential to take off some of that added pressure on you. Know intensive care units an on our healthcare system if this is proven to be safe and effective so But you know. I mean there's lots of skeptics out there already that i mean i mean it's it's in a pharmaceutical companies. Best interest to sort tout their own drug. That could make them some money. And so sometimes those things there's promises or a little bit over inflated and that's just kind of have to see what the fda decides to do and what not just what the fda decides to do but what what doctors decided to do what hospitals decide to do and do they put it into their sort of normal form of treatment and their protocols many many of their protocols which have been played then in place for some time. I it's certainly interesting to continue watch How all of this plays out and again. It's hey there's there seems to be no rhyme reason for how this This virus is moving across the state and across the country. There is a reason. I i mean i think you're still you're dealing with a very highly infectious variant. That really does a good job in a very bad way of spreading very good. We like we knew. The original sars covy to was sort of like principle is even more transmissible and yes. The the the effectiveness the efficacy of vaccines wayne overtime..

There's a lotta stuff behind the scenes that we don't think about what these schools state funding. Where does that come from. If they don't follow along with these guidelines windsors in a unique spot like you talked about lamoure county and weld county could be more opposite on how they're approaching this cove nineteen issue so i.

"But politically. When the governor more than a year ago said hey state you know statewide massar mandated etc on a local level. It kind of took political pressure away from local. This'll because that's right you're saying. Hey the law says this. That's all i can tell you you know you because i'm getting fifty percent of emails saying make mass mandatory and fifty percent of other emails. Saying you know you need to do something to make sure that they're not mandated etc. And so when the governor came out and did what he did it took political pressure off the local elected officials But then again. I can't wait a magic wand and issued an executive order that says you know thus saith this is what's going to happen in windsor nor does any other mayor have that power in northern colorado so it it puts it puts you know pressure or perceived pressure is probably the right way to say it puts perceived pressure on local elected officials. When we really don't have you know the ability to supersede what the state's doing or what counties are doing and obviously weld county's got a completely different view the lamoure county i mean larimer county is still ready to shut us down if they don't wear a mask or you know this so it it. It's it's and of course windsor. Being in both counties has to you know look at every situation completely different but it's It's made things very interesting. When we still have counties the two big counties obviously in northern colorado that's still have diametrically opposed viewpoints on. You know math and you know the variant and how they handle it. Well just say this for you. Mayor in meyer. I'm certainly glad wins. It's got a lot of great local breweries. Because i couldn't.
