Houston Rockets, John Wall Working to Find Trade Deal
"Keith, let's start things off with John wall, a Houston rocket for now. But will not be a Houston rocket into the future. It sounds like he is going to be treatable. The rockets are hoping. They're hoping anyway. Let's get into that. What's going to happen here? The rockets, John wall working together to try to find a trade and he will not play any more games for Houston. Yeah, so this is that working together part is where it's very different from the 76ers and Ben Simmons who are not exactly working together. They're kind of working apart right now. So it sounds like by all accounts John wall has been very good in his time in Houston. He's been somebody that the younger players have really come to rely on for leadership. He's been a great leader for them. In the rockets are looking at insane. Look, we have a ton of guards that we want to play young guards to Kevin Porter junior, jaylen green, Josh Christopher, just adding in the last couple of years. Kyrie Thomas, who we picked up on a late season edition last year and he played quite well for them. So they want to play those guys.

There's no other way to slice this. It's 91.6 million. That he is owed. It's bad money. There's John wall would probably say at the same thing. Good for John wall for getting him what he did. And this is why you should never criticize a pointer for taking a max contract when it's offered to him. Team, other story we can have there. But at the time this contract was offered, wasn't necessarily as a bad contract. And either he's one of the first class of supermax guys to get it. So yeah, so what they're going to do is they're going to have them come to camp. He sounds like he's going to be there to kind of almost be like a glorified assistant coach.

So it's changing the institution itself. this is very different from the ordinary job that the president and the Senate have of filling vacancies when judges choose to retire that happens all the time. Across the judiciary not just the Supreme Court? congress decides How many judges how many judgeships are on each court how they're distributed? You know that kind of thing. The ones that set and and Congress determines the right number. Basically, by the the needs of the court, like the case loads that a court has and and how many judges do they need to do the job right. So. That's what. That's what happens in the ordinary course of. The way our system of government works sometimes though you know a president Doesn't like what the Supreme Court is doing. and. They WANNA be able to fill vacancies with judges who will do things differently. That's natural. Question is what are they gonNA do about it well. Nineteen Thirties. President Franklin Roosevelt got elected in nineteen thirty two and he promised that the federal government was gonNA. Bring us out of the Great Depression. That was going to require a lot of authority by Congress over the economy. And they started passing this new deal legislation but the Supreme Court kept striking it down. They said, the federal government doesn't have that much authority over the constitution. Roosevelt gets reelected in a landslide nineteen, thirty six and he says, well, why don't we pass legislation to expand the Supreme Court his Bill that he wanted to pursue would've added up to six more justices up to fifteen total. That way he could appoint judges who would uphold his new deal legislation. Well. His Own Democrats in Congress I worked in the Senate for fifteen years before I came to the Heritage Foundation on the Senate Judiciary Committee and In recent years, you know the majority party has maybe less a two three four vote margin. Well, in Franklin Roosevelt's second term, the Senate was divided seventy eight to sixteen Democrats. You know essentially ruled the roost but it was his Democrats who said, no, we can't do it that way we can't just because you don't like what the Supreme Court is doing. You can't try to create a new Supreme Court. You can't try to add justices not because the court needs them not because the case load is overwhelming or something like that. It's only because you want to manipulate the court to get the decisions that you want. And that's going to destroy the independence of the courts..

But I think if we villain is Thomas and what has been historically considered his most notable trait, we weren't really like serving the tax properly. So I want to like put it in a different perspective. So let's put are sanctified imagination hats on this. So Thomas Thomas is is he loves Jesus enough that in a few chapters back he's like willing to die for him. He spent the past two or three years being part of his posse, their friends, their family Jesus appears to. All the other disciples except for him that we know of that's like the biggest photo ever we have the story they've seen their friend but for Thomas that's like not viable narrative which I think completely makes sense for him. Jesus is dead or his body was stolen. so He's grieving scared. He's maybe frustrated that his friends of seemingly gone insane and maybe even on another level feels like left out an embittered maybe he's wondering why Jesus hasn't appeared maybe he spent this whole week like. Wondering when Jesus GonNa pop up and so I think it's lovely that Jesus directly addresses him and has intimate moment with him. Jesus..

Okay. So I the gospel of Thomas or the Secret Gospel of Thomas. So it's like the secret sayings of Jesus it was recorded by a person named Judas Thomas. You guys talked about it sounds like he recorded him like with his. Right right. Now it could have been written anywhere between sixty and two hundred and fifty eighty. It's hard to date because we'll talk about this a minute it's not it's a sayings Gospel. It's not a narrative gospel sue is recorded, but we don't win. It was written right? Right exactly. Ca like originally we have copies or whatnot So if it was written after one, hundred, twenty ad, it wouldn't have been eligible canonization simply due to being written after the canonization pro nothing else has been added after one twenty eighty every much. Yeah. Yes. Sure. You get it it was discovered in Egypt. It doesn't directly point to Jesus's divinity, but it also doesn't like not do that. It's just kind of vague It is a sayings Gospel this was a this was a popular way to record famous teachers teachings at the time. So not a biography, not a narrative It's possible throwback to last.

"Of three years with Jesus the disciples were often overwhelmed by their emotions like fear and outrage joy and they were uncomfortable and they were certain and then they. Were uncertain and then they were anxious. It was all kind of weird and wonderful and mostly weird aren't we in the same feelings fight with God you and me we often find ourselves overwhelmed by feelings. We are scared of the diagnosis were angry at the government were excited about the baby or the house or the person for the job, and we're uncomfortable at the dinner table where certain of our next steps. But we're uncertain of how to actually step out in our next steps were anxious were anxious about our own flaws. The flaws of those we love the flaws of flawed world what has been repeatedly telling us this is now your home I'm with you do. Not Worry I bring peace the next time you feel overwhelmed simply reach out pech the hand of the one who's telling you. He is working for your good and believe him. That's really good my so who cares about you know I obviously I think I've talked about this law and the show up. So we talked about this in the episode, but I'm hugely drawn to Thomas because I very much identify with him and the story and his experience of doubt. I'm probably biased because I wrote an entire book about this idea but I'm all about the acceptance normalization of DOUKAS. Sadly, doubt is treated like another kind of expletive in it's rarely engaged with there's this. Weird cultural tension that ideologically speaking everything is all or nothing. It's a lot of if you're not with me, you're against me but this tendency towards absolutism isn't about getting at anything good or positive. It's about being afraid. It's about fear about fear of nuance. It's about being afraid of the things we can't neatly consolidate into easily understandable boxes to that I would say we're required to reject the neat and tidy understands of God because I refuse to believe in a God that can easily understand and quantify Dow wasn't Thomas's singular quality and it can't be hours either because an un- curious faith is just as dangerous as A. Comprehensive cynicism. So by Thomas, it's okay to ask questions but also like Thomas when faced with incontrovertible truth it's Ok and necessary to acknowledge those two and lastly before we go, we're GONNA end with accountability seven we call a gentle rebuke with resume Bible scholar and moon as is our tradition.

There have been like allusions to it, but he's the one he's honest. Wanted to be like I didn't believe now. Do I know you're the guy you're the guy and then Yeah. And then Jesus told him because you've seen me have believed blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed verse thirty Jesus for many other. Okay God. This is maybe the most frustrating thing of red. US for many other signs in the president cycles. which are recorded in this book my man I mean like you couldn't give me a list or something point. Matthew did when he gave us the whole leg. Jews afflicted it to get that. He invented tiktok dances. He punched the tiger. Like all this cool stuff. But no John's like this was enough for you like you should like this verse thirty one. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah the son of God and by believing you may have life in his name. So I like that this is feels like very final and then he goes on to write more chapter. Away no let's talk a little bit more. Did you want encore? Okay let's do that. So what happen to Thomas? Do we know? Well. There's a lot of none of its confirmable from what I saw like verifiable. I did see the ideas that he went to India and came the apostle of India There's some crazy stories about like the a a royalty figure gave him money to build a house and Thomas give to the poor and was like. I built the house for you and have a man. and. The king was product. Okay you gave. A physical house though, but there's some really cool fun stories. So I saw that the Axel Thomas say that he was martyred in a mild poor India where he was stabbed with spears. Yeah, and then Syrian Christians tradition specifies that he was. Martyred and killed with a spear. Yeah and then there's an early calendar entry that reads Saint Thomas who was pierced with a lance in India. Okay. So he feels like he got. Yeah. Phil. Johnson Lake. John We know will not he will be the one who does not get murder. He gets to live out his days like at a sandals resort. and so it's interesting that resented him for that I? Don't know there's in heaven for that. Can you resent heaven I hope. So I like resentments. You gotta be free of now. I don't. I do I do it's true.

Thomasson is one of twelve was not with the disciples when Jesus came I twenty five so that others told him we've seen the Lord, but he said to them this Thomas, unless I see the nail marks in his hands, put my finger where the nails were and put my hand and to aside I will not believe. So we have we have. The this is the totality of the Thomas Experience in the New Testament. You know he's obviously doing other things but this is where I feel like we get either fairly unfairly kind of his vibe I think we unfairly okay. So couple of things first of a set up question. So it says now Thomas was not win the deal with the disciples. So he has not Holy Spirit and all these other guys have spirit. Yes. What's that about? Is it like a tag situation or you had to be in the room to get that right see when he walks in the Holy Spirit like, Oh, just take a deep breath Y- you're here now here. So I'm very curious about we we're is the Holy Spirit does Thomas ever get you have to wait 'til pentecost sure. What happens to Thomas in the situation Erin dummy does he breathe in an era? It's going to be like do not know I don't care no one tears. The spirit, these other guys are like because I feel like the Holy Spirit will bring a chill vibe because it's free fruits are peace patience kindness gentleness self control. Yes and now Thomas is going to be like still freaking the freak out. And plus what we know. Okay. So contacts, we know from Luke Luke, which does not talk about this Thomas Experience, but he talks about right before this that I think it's in Luke twenty four that he says when they got back from the May told all these things to the eleventh. These are the women right and they They told all who told this to the apostles we've seen Jesus and it says, but they did not believe. The women because there were seemed like nonsense. Okay. So it's not just Thomas who doesn't believe it's other people in the room and also the disciples who were freaking the freak out in the room. Right? There's a gre- of disbelief there at everything that has been told in like four told them and they knew this was coming. They're still not knowing how to conduct. That's right and that's why I think when it gets there and it's like. What what what what what and I think there are other gathering like, yeah. Yeah. We we same. We didn't get to see like it did seem like that ghost we saw in the water when the the story Peter While Lady Ghost. Yeah, she knows.

I'm literally ever right subversive when he won again Jesus peace be with you as the father sent me I'm sending you verse twenty two and without he breathed on them weird said, receive the Holy Spirit if you forgive anyone sends their sins are forgiven if you do not forgive them, they're not forgiven. So a lot of things happen he's breathing on them and we're talking about the Holy Spirit. It's not weird because it shouldn't be weird it is weird verbiage fair but fair, but he's just talked about this in fourteen. So he has sat down with them in detail. I'm leaving and they're like wet I'm like, yeah I gotTa remember all the Times of told you. I gotta go. I gotTA. Go like for real it's happening now. And then he's like, but don't worry you know like you're mad and your side and I've just rebuke you. Peter. But. I'M GONNA send somebody a Minnesota counselor. Yes. You and the and then he's like look breed the money not burr breath it's like how dare you suggest I just feel like John. I think John The linguists the poet could have been like he bequeathed upon them he and furled the glory of. Not Giving the Bible notes but if I was a that might be I like I. Like the idea that he breathed than they were like, what is that what you're doing did? It smells that pepper. Like amber I don't know I think it's like warm cookies. Virtually, for now, Thomas also parentheses also noticed. Did US why did he did that? You think he's just trying to clarify or just be like this guy he just got. He did. Like he well, you know, I have a long history of being fascinated by twins. You're not necessarily loving twins being really confused by the genetics of it all and I feel like John has a twin issue the he's like now twin also known as twin.

"She called a polemic of like kind of a takedown Thomas Writing. So a lot of it and specifically this showcasing of Thomas like he's the guy not with the other two or with the other disciples and he's the one who doubts. It's kind of like very passive aggressive like that at odds because I like obviously like the Gospel John But this is my boy here. So I don't like what you do into my boy. And I think we're GonNa see that as we read in this passage, you know for me I am John's book was written later than I think all the goths thinks and I think that's why you find the eighty percent of what you will find in the book of John is only covered by him right? because. I think I also think John is in an era in for he was like, Oh, we go do a different like I'm not going to be like I'm not going to steal from mark like those other dudes I'm GonNa like write my own thing. So. We'll see. So in the season, we're skipping around a bit because sometimes Jesus will be alive and sometimes he will be dead but we're not telling Jesus a story. We're telling the stories of his followers we're not doing this chronologically. So, guess what Jesus is dead he had been arrested tried and sentenced to death and about what felt like eight days he's been buried. His followers are super sad there also in hiding because they're scared for their own lives But one of them, Mary Magdalene a lady goes to his team finds an empty and she likes the freak out and then she goes and tells Peter and John and Dave themselves freak the freak out and they head back to their disciples safe house and they wait will marry mags and some other ladies show up and are like you guys guess we saw walking around cash in the street and they're like who? Jesus H Christ You believe that and that is where we pick up our story today I like it I like it. Okay. So and then before I encourage people if you wanna read really thoughtful stuff about the Gospel John About maybe if you want to go into the Secret Gospel Thomas Elaine Pale, she hasn't some really good stuff but I think think about it in the context. Specifically, this passage but like the the book of John You know what Elaine Pagel socks about is Thomas's Gospel is a lot I think if we read say it'd be like new agey we feel like that and a lot of is like there's a divine light that exists with all within all of us..

I feel like what made you be able to see and ignore that and say I don't care what they saying was being said about him. Uc what you saw. You did what you did. I always approached the traff asking this question. Can this person play in a championship game and win? And what is his his mental makeup in every trade that I made. It's like okay. Not Can he play in the NBA? Not How many points can this guy perform under pressure? If we in a pressure situation can follow game plan can execute and can we win a championship with them? And if you look at all the players that I've drafted and some of the players that I've traded for they even hall of fame right now. They've been named NBA. All Stars and have won championships or been six men of the year so on teen that that we had in New York. We had six people off the team when NBA Championships. Maliki was on that team went. Nba Championship David Lee One. Nba Championship. Channing Frye one. Nba Championship Edie Carey was on NBA championship team. Jamal was you know sixth man of the year forever. The trophy will probably be named after six. Guard Wilson. As you said. It's still playing everyone that that we had at tied inge as record in play also points in the order as the fourth string guy and and we had all this talent in everybody was was so young and maturing and growing now you know the narrative in New York and I don't know how this got started where they said. Well you treated all the draft picks. I never treat any rapid as a matter of fact one year I had three first round picks if you go back and you look at what I actually did or we forget the name. Trevor Reason I in terms of And I'm sure there's somebody else that I MISS. You know as a champion so if there's somebody else that was on that team. I Miss I apologize. But there's only the trade that that I still think today is so misunderstood. People you know have have wrote so fictitious fictitiously. Just bad about was the eddy curry trait. I mean the Eddy. Curry A to me was eddy. Curry and Wilson Chandler for tyrus Thomas and tyrus Thomas at that time was I think he was the second pick in the draft. And I let that tyrus and no offense tyrus but I just said I I got David Lee and I got channing. Frye so I'm good. I'm good at the power forward spot. I don't need another power forward in the three power forwards. At that time they were coming out was aldridge. Tyrus Thomas and joking Noah when I looked at channing in David I said Okay. These two guys are capable in my opinion and this was my criteria my criteria is. Can you win a championship? Not Can you plan the NBA and score some points and make some money? Can You win the championship? I looked at David Lee. And I looked at channing. Frye and I say these two guys planned championship teams and win. So I'm good within right and I think when you look back in history has proven US correct that Wilson Chandler Eddy Curry for tyrus. Thomas was a damn good trade. Tom Remember this. I first PRESEASON GAME. It was a first or second. Preseason Game Coaching the Indiana Pacers who we had a whip in Indiana and if very win fire me I. He'll say today we do.

It truly was a team concept that allowed everyone to be known and you know we used to say let it be known everybody gets a chance at a slice of the Pie but if you individual walking in then you get all the glory so I am happier today about the way people think about our team because all the people that you just named those guys were you know. Six man coming off the bench. Buddha Vinnie was so so from a team standpoint. How many players that played on a championship team? That still have the name notoriety that our team has talked about top. So That's how we marched and that's how we play now. It was a league that was moving towards individuality and we resisted that and I'll talk about lamb beer the most because you know lamb beer in think about this laimbeer a white center won back to back championships has won three or four championships in the WNBA can't get no burn in the NBA because he never left what we was all about in Detroit. He never stepped out of. He never tried to be an individual. Do He stayed within the teams learn. Now if he would have been a little bit more selfish now you got the different people in the NBA. Maybe we look at him differently But you can't name a player of his stature that has had the success that WHO's been ward of dead not that hasn't had an opportunity to coach in the NBA. And so I look at it and I just say you know what we stood for and what we still stand for today in terms of teen over individuals that has stood the test of time in a still you know how can I say it is in my opinion what the game should be about talk about how you know from Chicago. So everybody know you saying you play everything about you. Toughness saying from stitches in whatever just the way you play sprained ankle bottle out in the finals legendary like Taco Bell. Like where we come from where you come from in particular because I claim what you come from a little tough when you talk about how that just got you prepare for you know not only the NBA or college life. In general you know coming from the city and coming from where we come from I I grew up on on the west side of Chicago and in the west side of Chicago is that is that side of town that that the tourists don't talk about you know what I mean. It's like when people talk about. Chicago is the south side. And you know everything happens on. The South side in the in the west side is like a place where the expressway runs through. You know and you know. We grew up again. We was dirt poor and I grew up every single day. My first thought waking up in the morning was where can I get some food? Really? That was my first thought every day like where can I get something to eat in? You know I can get it on the way to school I can still somebody lunch at school In and then you had to fight on your way to school on your way back from school and you know the way the way all of us grew up particularly in Chicago. You literally had to walk out your door and you had to look across the street and make that decision if the guy who was standing across the street if he's going to let you walk by it was gonna be a fight in if you didn't guess right on day you could die. You literally die so your your decision. Making Skills Got Scharping. They got honed. And if you look at that guy and use like okay. I'm across the street. And then he crossed the street to then. You just gotTa go back the other way. You gotta find another way to school definitely knows the warning signs by growing up we. Yeah so and then you had to learn the fight so and I and I got good at fighting You AIN'T GONNA BE. Yeah and actually start enjoying fighting remember. I took karate right and I got all the way up to my black belt and you know you have to fight each time to get your bill and I'll never forget I was standing there and I was getting ready to fight this dude named Jerry. And he's black belt and I was. I had purple and I was fight. You gotTA FIGHT TO GET YOUR BLACK. And and he broke know you bass and say he broke out into staffing. He looked at me. Is.
"thomas b" Discussed on The Brink
"She's been hitting the drink twice as hard now we're going to finish finish up and talk about the precipitous. Drop off the brink that Thomas Cook went through and it was. This was something that happened so so suddenly that it took a lot of people by complete surprise even even people who had said Yeah. I knew that they weren't doing well. Financially were shocked at how fast this unravel rabble. Will you never think that. Somebody's just gonNA close overnight when they've got tons of people whole around the globe so how he got there in two thousand seven like we said before the break lake they had more brick and mortar locations than any other travel retailer right but the travel industry as a whole was shifting online online so quickly that that was not an asset it was actually a liability. Yes because I was all that overhead so much overhead unlike an airplane with very little overhead smashes. It's all all underfoot in two thousand eleven. The company sought out one hundred and twenty five million dollars dollars or pounds. I believe dollars Zia. Every report I saw was posted in a news journal so I just assumed that that means we're talking dollars hundred twenty five million whether it's dollars or pounds is a lot of money whole Lotta money. And they did this to tide over their cash shortage. Yes so this was like A. They're in a real serious cash crunch that they just didn't have the money to keep operations two billion dollars in debt. Yeah so this. This was essentially the keep the lights on and be able to pay their their staff. Keep in mind their staff. It's not just travel agents. We're talking about flight crews. We're talking about you know paying for the fuel for your aircraft. There's tons of things that are part of this Gargantuan business at this point and it's it's mind in boggling it. The next year the company announced it was going to restructure and in the process close two hundred of its stores and in two thousand thirteen. The company announced is that it was going to streamline by merging their airlines in Belgium Scandinavia the United Kingdom and Germany into a single division and in two thousand fifteen they a announced a strategic partnership with Chinese Investment Group called Foshan international which looked like it might have been a saving grace book like it. Looks like it wasn't the first half of two thousand eighteen. The company was seeing a huge drop off in customers. Yes and the reasons for this are are multiple like there's no one caused we can point to and say this is why people travelled less. They're actually quite a few view. Different reasons that contributed in some way shape or form for example. You probably heard if you if you're not in the UK you've definitely heard heard about if you're in the UK you're living it which `sorry the brexit process right so brexit out. Some people have argued has discouraged a a lot of travel so a lot of people not knowing what was going to be in store for them you know financially or legally just to move in and amount of countries in the EU for example they held off on holiday plans so that was one argument. Another was that in two thousand eighteen gene the UK had an unusually warm winter and in the UK. Winter is when a lot of Brits fly away to get someplace that ain't so gosh dern Dang cold and damp and grey. I one of the coldest winters I ever spent was a June in the UK. Jin Yeah. That's how cold it can get there. Wow no I was in Scotland the northern regions of Scotland and it got chilly at night. No but but yeah I. It's it's I mean I I always think about when I go to Orlando like if I go to Orlando in the summer Summer Months I see one type of Tourists all over the place but if I go in the winter months it's almost All Brits Yeah and then there are also reports of management being unconservative with their pay. Yeah no there were a lot of stories about the the top levels of management at Thomas Cook we're having some of the most Exorbitant like executive salaries and benefits. So there was a lot of stories is about the mismanagement staying that people were were overpaid for their positions. At least that was the perception. I'm not sure if that was the reality. And these these factors were compounded by the fact that by May Have Twenty nineteen hoteling gas costs. were up and that was making travel even more expensive which was cutting into the profit margin for these packages they were offering because they couldn't have the packages go up too much or people wouldn't buy them but they couldn't wouldn't have it hold at the lower levels because then they would be losing money on the deal. He's acts put them in a rough place yet. July Twenty Nineteen Thomas is cook. Group received an initial offer from sin to be purchased yet again again so the that was something that the company was considering by August. Two Thousand Nineteen. They entered into a rescue package. which would give Tourism Control of the Thomas Cook Group tours tours and vacations. That would give Thomas Cook Airlines to creditors and bondholders and this package was nine hundred million pounds. So this little like this might be able to keep the company going for that just under a billion pounds amount. But it wasn't no because another punch was right around the corner. Yeah just a month later. Creditors are demanding an additional two hundred million pounds in funding. They were worried that two thousand nineteen The winter of two thousand nine hundred two thousand twenty was going to be a repeat of two thousand eighteen which we live in the south. And it's been a very hot September October ninety seven degrees degrees and October fourth. When we record this so not completely unfounded but that meant that the additional two two hundred million was beyond what I was willing to to negotiate and the deal essentially fell through and it by falling through the company crumbled? Yes they went into immediately predation. This one hundred and seventy eight year old company closed its doors overnight and the big part of the problem that you've probably heard about if you've been paying attention to the news regarding Thomas. Cook is that more than half a million people were. We're on a Thomas Cook vacation while this happened Collie and you're talking about immediately ceasing operations. Which means that airline airline doesn't exist anymore which meant thousands of people no longer had a way home? You had folks who are trapped all over the place and this is when in the UK government had to look into how to fix this for at least the UK citizens. Now keep in mind. There was like six hundred thousand. People were on vacation nation only ballot. I say only still huge number of people about one hundred sixty thousand of those were British citizens and everybody else's candidacy plum out of luck You at least for this particular solution and that solution was that the United Kingdom Civil Aviation Authority would start a repatriation peacetime program. Called operation. Matterhorn man. I guess it takes some of the sting out that you're gonna a half to depend upon your home country's government to get you back home if you're told that it's part of Operation Matterhorn. Eating a fun Disney ride. I mean at least it gives gives it something like romantic as opposed to get me the hell home does give you something pleasant sounding. Tell your grandchildren. Yeah and It was funny because I was actually reading news articles written about this whole experience and for some people it was very it was. It was frustrating trading stressful It was confusing and perplexing but for some people they got an unexpected a crazy upgrade to their experience because the CIA was chartering flights from pretty much any available airline that had aircraft craft and some of them were luxury airlines. Joe Order flights hard nicer and the these were. I mean these were like commercial jets these ed but in some cases they were commercial jets. They're meant for luxury flights. Where you might end up in a luxury suite type situation that normally would cost you? Thousands sounds and thousands of dollars but because it was the government that was kinda coming in and swooping it up. You didn't have any extra cost. It was them trying to get you home. I I hope that the people who found themselves in that situation would be able to enjoy the unexpected benefit through all the stress well and a lot of them also expressed a deep sense of empathy for the crew and the staff of Thomas. Cook there the over and over. I read reports about how they wanted to make it clear that they were not blaming. Any of the people who worked there for what was happening wasn't their fault right but that it was and there were also reports that talked about how the flight crews Thomas Cook flight crews new.
