Will Congress act on guns after Sandy Hook, Buffalo, Uvalde?
"Senate democratic chief Chuck Schumer is pushing Republicans to finally act on guns after the Texas shooting With 20 little kids dead Please damn it please think if it was your child or grandchild But Schumer notes the prospects of GOP senators shifting course in helping pass substantial laws to curb gun violence are very slim even as leader Mitch McConnell blasted the shooting It's literally sickening Alabama Republican Tommy tuberville said regulating guns won't solve anything This is a mental health issue Guns are not the problem okay People are the problem New Jersey Democrat Cory Booker says that's the problem Mines are made up It doesn't matter if more kids died This is just going to be the same thing as it was after Parkland after newtown Here nothing is changing Sagar Meghani Washington

John Zmirak's 18-Year-Old Paranoia Was Completely Justified
"You were just telling us something about what happened in 1982. In 1982, an age 17 maybe 18 as a freshman at Yale, I was telling my Friends that the gay lobby was far more dangerous to western civilization than Soviet comics. This is 17 years before Tommy collapsed, but I think as we look around and children being chemically castrated, 12 year old girls having their healthy breasts removed to radical mastectomies, young people being groomed and recruited for sexual perversion by Disney by kindergarten teachers by second grade teachers by school boards. I'm afraid my 18 year old paranoia was all too justified that I would take Soviet communism in a heartbeat over what the LGBTQ my name is legion movement has in mind. Well, I think John, you're just gifted in the sense that you kind of see things as they are and you connect the dots and most people somehow, you know, a fly or a gnat distracts them before they can connect all the dots. And you really have been able always to do that. And

U.S. Senate Passes $1.5 Trillion Gov't Funding Bill With Ukraine Aid
"So I want to get into a story here that broke late last night. The United States Senate has approved the $1.5 trillion spending bill that expands the power of the IRS and dramatically increases the size and scope of government last evening, but also it sends $13.6 billion to Ukraine. We're going to get into that. Now Senate Republicans voted for this 18 of them voted for it. Senator barrasso from Wyoming, Roy blunt from Missouri. Shelley Moore capito from West Virginia, Susan Collins from Maine, John cornyn from Texas, Joni Ernst from Iowa, Lindsey Graham from South Carolina, chuck grassley from Iowa. Kathy Hyde Smith from Mississippi, Mitch McConnell from Kentucky. Senator Moran from Kansas, Lisa Murkowski from Alaska, rob Portman from Ohio, senator Shelby from Alabama, John thune from South Dakota, Tommy tuberville from Alabama, a senator wicker from Mississippi and senator young from Indiana. Approved Nancy Pelosi's $1.5 trillion omnibus bill. What good are Republicans when we have Republicans doing the work of Democrats? So I want to focus on one part of this, which of course is us spending $13.6 billion to Ukraine. Now, I'm not going to get into whether or not we should send the money. I've already made my position clear on that. I'm going to ask a couple of questions about this. How about leaders thought this through? What does success look like with this sort of funding appropriation? What is an acceptable result? So a rational way of going about spending money, any person that we have here at NRB would ask the question before you spend $13.6 billion before you embark on a mission, you just have to say if it's the right or wrong thing to do, but also weigh the reality of pulling off that task. And the track record associated with the entity or the organization proposing it. So I have a question for all of our listeners that support sending money to Ukraine. Do you have trust in the CIA? Does mark milley and Lloyd Austin give you confidence? Because that's who we just funded. Does giving foreign aid to other countries give you confidence or does it give you skepticism? So just to be clear, these Republicans and a lot of people that are pushing for sending a to Ukraine. And it might be the right choice, by the way. I have said I don't believe it is. I could be corrected, but it's already

"Oh yeah, it was perfect casting, perfect casting. So, you know, that whole silly screwball oddness to it. I just doesn't quite hang together for me. And even though there are places where I was moved, and I guess we've really, this is like how many entries have we had in the looking back at the 90s. It was very hard to be a lady, you know? Yeah. Is the genre over, like, is there something like, can we move forward from this? Is there I think that's a question I've been asking myself as well. And part of it, for me, is like, how are we talking about the women who are at the forefront right now? That's my concern. How are we talking about Cardi B? Megan Thee Stallion. I don't know. Jennifer Lawrence, like all these younger women who are now kind of at their peak or reaching their peak. How are we discussing them now? Because if we're not treating them well now, are we really just going to be in 20 years doing the same thing that we've done with Janet? And with Brittany and with Pam Anderson, are we still going to be doing that? Now, I think it is different, I think for one thing, we have way more women and women of color who are blogging and writing for publications who are able to talk about these things in more nuanced ways than most of the journalists were back then. So that's good. I still wonder, have we really moved the needle much? Or are we just going to keep doing hindsight is 2020? Which is not useful. You could have played the football game right from the beginning, you know? You don't have to do this on Monday morning. Yeah. Yeah. I'm also glad that you mentioned the Tommy book because I share as having read it, but one thing that I think is worth noting and I'm not sure I don't know if the show the way it is set up totally was equipped to handle this, but they don't even touch this. The fact that he was arrested for assaulting her while she was holding one of their sons, a baby, and even went to jail for a few months for it. I think that the fact that the show doesn't, it presents their love story as just pure and beautiful. Like he's always like cheerleading her. And yeah, maybe he did do that, but also there's this other side of him. I don't know. Again, I don't know if this show was equipped to deal with that, but I do think that is something that just kind of speaks again to this sort of queasiness that I have with how much I also enjoyed a lot of it. I mean, we haven't even talked about sort of the Seth Rogen Rand of it all. But it is half his story because he is sort of presented at first as the everyman who's kind of ignored and you feel bad for him at first because Tommy is clearly like an annoying person to work for. Just finish this. So? You yank out a couple of nails. Just a little more complicated than that. How complicated can he be? Moving it at this stage. It's gonna cost. Cost. Would I say when we first started this job? Money is no object. Correct him on no. There is this like setting him up in this highly sympathetic way. And then, you know, his uncle milty and, oh my God. Nick Offerman is just, I mean, he's born to oil out of this role. I feel bad for him, but I don't. I still feel so queasy about that character. And I feel like the show is trying to tell me that it's okay that he stole this tape because of X, Y, and Z, you know? I don't know. Maybe, I don't know. I feel like it starts off being very sympathetic, but then there are moments where other characters, including his estranged wife, who we still sort of Friends with, played by Taylor Schilling. I don't know. He has an arc. Again, I agree with you. There is this weird sort of tonal shift that's happening. That makes it hard to love this show. But also, meanwhile, Seth Rogen is great, just kind of slumpy world against me, dude. Yeah, aggrieved, dude, yeah. He's born to play it, and he did have that touch of menace. I always like seeing him play a less likeable character. Likeable seems to have been his currency for so long that this is kind of interesting, even though, you know, I'm not sure exactly succeeds. So we've already talked about, where do we go from here? But is there any other show or project that you think would be good in terms of relitigating the past? Is there anything that you can think of that would feel new or different? I mostly want to see these women themselves in conversation with, like you say, women who are out there in that same position today. So you want to see Janet Jackson talking to Cardi B oh yeah, I would love that. We need to sort of bring it together. Actresses, stars telling their own stories. And that's, I think, where I'm most interested. What we want to know what you all think about Pam and Tommy, you can find us at Facebook dot com slash PCH and on Twitter at PCH. And one last thing before we go, we're going to be talking about another thing of the 90s, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. And we definitely want your questions. You can email us a voice memo with your question to PCH at NPR dot org. Again, send us a voice memo with your question to PCH at NPR dot org. And that brings us to the end of our show. Barry, it's been so great to have you here. That was so fun. Thank you. And we will see you all tomorrow when we'll be talking about euphoria.

"tommy t." Discussed on Pop Culture Happy Hour
"Joining me today is NPR's senior editor Barry hardyman. Hey Barry, welcome back. Hey. Thank you. Nice to see you. So in fam and dami, Lily James and Sebastian Stan star as Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee. Yet the series does not begin from either the perspectives, but rather from the perspective of ran godier, who's played by Seth Rogen. Now, Rand is a contractor working on the newlywed couple's mansion, and it's fed up with Tommy's outrageous demands and unwillingness to pay for his time and effort. So Rand seeks revenge by stealing a safe from Tommy's garage and unwittingly stumbles upon Tommy and Pam's sex tape. He teams up with pornographer uncle milty, played by Nick Offerman to sell and distribute copies of the VHS tape. But they soon lose control over the operation as bootlegs flood the market, other opportunists try to cash in, and the tension reaches the mainstream. Most of the events are taking place between 1995 and 1997, and the show goes to great lengths to demonstrate how the Internet was still in its infancy. So there's lots of dial up tones and moments of waiting for a website to load very slowly. The series is also very intent on depicting Pam and Tommy as sympathetic figures and victims of revenge porn, something that seems obvious to us now, but was definitely not how a lot of society thought of the leak at the time. Pam and Tommy was created by Rob Siegel and it's based off of a Rolling Stone story reported by Amanda Chicago Lewis. The miniseries is now streaming on Hulu. So Barry, what do you think about bam and Tommy? How are you feeling about it? Yeah, I'm gen X. I want to dive back into all the 90s, you know, appreciation and rewrapping of these times. I like it from a nostalgic point of view. I think that the performances are in the case of Lily James kind of extraordinary. I think she's just wonderful. And I was sort of prepared to be like, maybe I think she's acting really well because they've done such a good job of making her up. Yeah, she looks completely different. It's amazing. It's like really, rarely far from Downton. Yeah. But she is actually really imbues this with real pathos. I guess the thing I would say about it is that it's hard to describe what this wants to be. It's like kind of a screwball comedy at first. Yeah. And then we're sort of in this nostalgia land and how female stars were treated in the 90s, which I am here for, but I also, this is not the first entry into that market. So it's like, you know, it's like hard for me to watch this and not be like, I kind of watched, I'd be happy to watch framing Britney Spears again, you know? But if you marry that screwball stuff with the Pamela Anderson was a victim stuff, which is absolutely true. When you marry that too much, you sort of end up trafficking in a little bit of the exploitation that you're talking about, you know? Yeah. And I know the fact that this is not like the Monica Lewinsky, Ryan Murphy collab, like this is a woman who reports say that she did not want to revisit this trauma. Right. So that kind of hungover it for me. I don't know if it did for you too. I mean, I had pretty much the exact same experience where I was very much into the performances. I appreciated the way in which the show really takes you back in time to the mid 90s when the Internet was still new and where even someone who was rich and famous like Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson had to go to the library to use the Internet. No good. That was amazing. What is this? What is what? This HTTP one. Well, that's a website they're making one for barbed wire. This is how he's selling this? I don't know, I really don't get it. We have a computer? We have a computer. It's in the downstairs then, but we don't have the web. It's being you plug your phone into. Okay, so who has it? Where do we get the web? Like they didn't know when they're like, where could we go? It's like, I guess we've got to go to the library. So I really like that. And I think the show does a really good job of sort of getting at that point in time and reminding us or telling the younger folks the younger people who might be watching, this is what it was like. It was like the wild west. There was no rules and everyone was just trying to figure stuff out. And the way in which that factors into the way Rand and uncle milty are putting this video out there, the fact that they have to put the news of the video and people could buy it on the Internet, but they had to ship it. All of these things, it's like, it's a whole process. It's like a, it's a challenge for secret thing, you know? Yeah. So I loved those touches, but at the same time, I agree with you, there is such a tonal shift between it all, because what I think the show is trying to do is it's trying to make us take these two people who in real life were presented as caricatures to all of us. And make them human. And I think it does that, or it doesn't at least deny how kind of weird they are because I think there's a way to say that they're human, but also say these people were also kind of weird. They got married after four days of knowing each other. That whole licking the face, the atmosphere at the club. The first time they meet at the club is just kind of, I think it's actually like a really fun sequence. The way that is shot and edited, it's like great. And it's very like, it was like the reason that I was reading Us Weekly in the 90s. Like I wanted to see those that was something about it that really brought me back as like a person flipping through magazines. Yeah, it definitely had that tabloid quality, but wanting to approach it with more substance. But at the end of the day, there's so many scenes where we are, if not seeing clips of the tape or like the reenactment of the tape, we are hearing it and we are over and over and I just keep thinking, well, okay, isn't this just in some ways reiterating or re exploiting her again in a way? All over again. So I think that it has noble intentions and there's so many scenes where you are seeing the perspective of both of these characters. And Tommy Lee, he's still treated as a victim sort of because there are moments where he gets upset when people are like, yeah, this is your best thing. You've done since your last album. Right. And he's like, we haven't had a hit in so long. I know. So there's like a little bit of an star is born thing going on there too, because pale Anderson is supposed to be shooting up with Baywatch and hopefully getting a movie career. But there are lots of scenes where her character is saying like, this is different for you, they're out to get me and they think that just because I flaunt my body that I also wanted this tape out and that's not the case. I'm on that tape just the same as you. But this is worse for me. I mean, this is way worse. How is this worse for you? Why? 'cause of your big career? There's so much bigger than mine. What tummy? It's not because of my big career. It's because I'm a woman. People are gonna think you're cool for this. Me, I'm gonna get looked at like a slut by the whole world. That's ridiculous. And so it's an interesting balance, and it's a little bit less clear cut, I think, than something like impeachment. Right. Obviously, Ryan Murphy has made an art of the genre. And, you know, I watched the OJ one and the Versace one and the Monica one, and I think they're all very interesting and a varying quality, right? But I guess the thing that I want is that I want the person at the center to have decided that they want to process that trauma. So like, you know, Monica Lewinsky has made a career of reaching out to other people who are, you know what I mean? And then the other thing about it, and I don't know, I will say, I may be one of maybe only 5 people at NPR that has read Tommy Lee biography Tommy land. Yeah. Some of the source material clearly came from Tommy land, which is the biography. And some of it came from this Rolling Stone article. And one of those is not like the other. Yeah. Exactly. And so some of that is just some basic, when you look at a narrative, you want to make sure that you've sewn the narrative together. There's a moment where, because this is direct from the autobiography where Tommy Lee has a conversation with his penis. Here, voiced by Jason mintz..
The Most Impactful Tools of Persuasion With Political Commentator Calvin Robinson
"You know the next generation, you've taught them Calvin. Can you help me? I have a mission, you know? My mission is to keep our tommies in the trenches. Our GIs, buoyed and ready to fight to give them the political and spiritual ammunition. But I'm curious, have you found in talking to those who are from the other side, or who are undecided or apolitical or just indoctrinated? Is there any frequency? Is there any tool that you have found to be more persuasive than others? I found personal narrative, especially the narrative of my parents quite efficacious and in what they suffered through. But tell us as an educator what you've seen work the best. So I've always struggled with personal anecdotes because they can always Trump you on something. If you say, well, I come from a working class background. But what I was more impoverished than you, if you say, well, I'm like, well, I'm fully black, you know, they can always one up here on that. And I find that facts and evidence don't work in arguments against them. Because there are entirely motive. So what I try to do is just ask questions. Keep asking questions. You know, with my kids in class, in particular, but Trump is a bad guy. Trump is evil, I'd be like, okay, so why? Because so what policies do you not like it is? And then you get, you know, they're almost imploding. And the more you can ask those questions, they're more they start to question themselves, but actually, why do I think that? Because they have to come to the realization on their own, that they've been indoctrinated. We can't tell them that they've fallen. They know they've been duped, because nobody wants to admit they've been due to the I have to realize it for themselves. And that's the same with adults. We can't say that this pandemic has been overblown. We just have to keep asking people. So do you really think that locking people down in their own homes is a good idea? Do you really think that sending people with COVID from hospitals into elderly care homes is a good idea? Do you really think giving a vaccine to 5 year olds when they're not at risk is a good idea just keep asking the questions and eventually they'll work it out for themselves.

It's a really rewarding business because you start to become almost an extension of some of these people's families. Because i would say i'd say maybe seventy percent of our customers are like kids calling for their parents like. Hey i'm in new york. My mom lives in boca raton florida. She needs to get here. Can you help me so once. You're able to kind of help them through that states away. You take a burden off of those kids backs you know and and you feel that and they feel that. And it's you know it's it's rewarding you know It's it's It's the most rewarding business. I've ever done you see that every day. I wanted to tell me. Is there a particular type of vehicle that you nato can you by various types to do this this business. So what's really funny is back to the low bury's injury that i told you how you can start this business with your own car. You don't have to go out and get any special vehicle..

I can get back home and start my day. So that's how i get. My day started with these kids but As soon as i drop them off on back to the house i'm in the office and figuring out what the what we gotta do today so When my wife called me crazy. I have two different businesses so i have to kind of manage my own time and my own self or figure out which business needs attention right now so. It's all a self disciplined sort of thing you know You gotta be able to wake up. Tell yourself what you gotta do and then actually do it. Which sounds very cliche in easy to do. But it's a lot of a lot of distractions in the world. Especially when you're on your on your self-propelled you have a boss named to so to say look you've got to do this. No that's not which is You know a gift and a curse sometimes because you know you can just toast sometimes but then at the same time when there's no money coming in who's gonna kick your butt you gotta keep your own yet really gonna be your own self motivator. You've talked about taking chances. And not love to talk about some of the chances that you've taken that bain For judas. I guess you'd call it non one being cool heads.

Don't stay on your head very well. You try to do that so My senior college. I got together with a few designers and a few people and told them my idea. And then we got to work on figuring out how to make a product like that so Had some interns and the apparel textile department. We started to make some prototypes and a few prototypes later. We had a product that we've been pretty happy.

And we've had fully fifty percent of the people say that's not what i wanna do which is course of action screening and the whole reason behind it. Yeah it's exactly. It's like if it was one hundred percent successful means. People are probably taking sub optimal things right so it is important to say. That's not what i wanna do. You want me back out and get to do something which kind of goes back to. Do you have a buffer to be able to absorb that but so that one year period we wanted all connected. We don't want any kind of well. I was you know networking. I had to take a break and you know and then you want it to be connected in their network and it's like when you get out Seven months from now. Okay let me pass you on. So it's conversations fresh and connected and stuff you can do it before but really where it's impactful is kind of time window. Lean right up to getting out.

We get to this meeting but his comment to me always was h-how he's got a minute for soldier so that guy was late for more staff meetings and i think you're probably using it as a tactic to you. But he was late for seventy means because he would he would. He would every time somebody talk to him. He would take a minute. You know for soldier. So you're just out there and you wanna talk about transition. Feel free to give me a call. Shoot me an email scrape set some time up for you and the other thing out there. If you're a veteran he's transitioned right. You've been through this journey successful not successful. You probably kinda got to plays. You need to be given back like everybody's looking for some congressman or some president or or somebody to solve the problem the only way we're going to solve some of the veterans issues out. There is a is veteran solving it pure and simple inside veteran's hiring the only way we're going to get a tipping point is if we get enough veterans out there who are navigating through the ranks of these organizations and instead always looking forward looking back right and it's like a ranger school rope bridge turnaround or coming out of the ravine. Right turn around. Put your hand out. Help somebody else behind you right Somebody reaches out on linked in answer. It mentor them. Help guide them. So take care of each other. I mean that's that's that's how we is. Veterans are really an assault some of these veterans issues. And just start connecting. It's it's not. The vfw telling war stories right shooting people in the face and all that stuff fact. Every time i get around veterans. I i haven't heard a war story and forever. 'cause nobody really talks about it. They just enjoy being around each other. But you get connected being advocate. There's tons of great programs out there right and four blocks and other good program. You know honor foundation out there. There's commit foundation. There's a lot of programs out there right. There's very niche programs. Like if you want to go in the technology world and there's there's very niche programs that help transition specifically in technology world. There's a lot of resources like microsoft certifications in technology stuff. There's project management all. You can give for free. You just gotta go out kind of look at it. It's the information's out. There you know give talked to your transition office look online do lease linked. Then you know if you're if you're a marine raider type in marine raider out there and you'd be surprised at what pops up if you're seal do the same thing you know ranger You guys on social media. We are on facebook. Instagram linked in saint soda. Yup i i think the instagram's a little bit different. But if you put in you know esotique pop up. But i think it's dust soda for something like that Out there on that one. I director of ops lauren. As one manages that we'll make sure we take you. Yeah there's you're an old crusty guy instead. Probably chastise me guys who listen to this thing. And they're gonna go. Wow i gotta go to the old man's office and talk with him. I whole intake calls really just getting getting to know folks in one. Just let me tell you about the program and what it is and for me. It's super important takes time but i think it's super important is to help me can keep connected of who's coming in and and stuff there so it's it's very nice of you to give your time because you're trying to run an organization so i mean you know to get that opportunity to speak to you if somebody who's managing the program understands what's going on like you're saying it gives you a post the other direction. Well they're getting an opportunity to speak to a leader. Who really understands what's going on. So take that input if you're listening to this and you're one of those individuals that takes tommy's time you know really take in what's being said the direction that you're providing me or that individual because it sounds like it could be really beneficial even though it's a short call that direction and you know a lot of times i just did one Friday late. Friday actually is friday evening and You know sometimes it's like. Hey here's why i'm looking to do. And and sometimes it's hard to know what resources out there and there's thousands of veterans resources and some of them are pretty shady summer super exception. Alright so having somebody help navigate. That is is something we we'd like to do as well and for folks out there it's again you know to call. The action is get involved. You can be involved with us. It doesn't matter if you're a special operator if you wanna be kind of a mentor for folk she had a really positive transition out there and you want to be a mentor than shoot us an email. It's on the side. You know it's called get involved on our website and or shoot us something on social media and we'd love to have because again we want to build basically a platoon or team around these operators. They transition so they know that. Hey there's success out there and all these kind of unknowns. You can get there..

"Is tommy the one lying the jury deliberates for three days before finding tommy guilty on all four counts of first degree murder two weeks later. They're back for sentencing and while the jury recommends life in prison for all four convictions. The judge overrides that recommendation. And actually sentences tommy to death. Oh can they do that. I wouldn't say it's a widely supported practice but yeah absolutely in the years. After tommy's team appeals many times on many different grounds with those appeals or always denied execution dates are set but then cancelled because of a last minute appeal in two thousand one. After years of fighting tommy's team finally gets the courts to agree to run some dna tests. The evidence from the scene which you know obviously weren't available back in the day specifically. He wants them to run tests on the fabric from the clothing. That tommy was wearing that night. Tommy says the dna on his shirt will prove that. The blood doesn't belong to his father-in-law but didn't estates tests. Already show it was the father-in-law's blood what the state's testing showed was that. The blood on the shirt was type. A and that perry edwards had taibbi blood but three of the victims had taipei blood. Perry unicef and charlie so what he's saying. If it's charlie proves that he's not the killer because it makes more sense for him to have the purpose blood on him pretty much but more than that. It proves that he wasn't the one who had that violent struggle with perry because remember the dude fought hard and was beaten severely. The theory has always been whoever killed. Perry would likely have his blood on them and sure enough when they run the tests. They don't find perry's blood on tommy shirt they find charlie's blood but you want to know who did have perry's blood on their clothes. Charlie mays and as far as i can tell based on my research. This is the first time. Charlie's clothing is ever tested ever even with the blood all over his shoes and his pants Even with all that blood. The prosecution says that the presence of perry's blood on charlie's close isn't enough to establish him as the killer and that the absence of perry's blood on the four little squares of fabric tommy's team was allowed to test. That doesn't prove tommy's not the killer's blood could have just like missed those spots a case. So why don't they test all of it. Then that's the big question that's always been the big question. Why don't they just test it all. And that's what tommy wants. That's what he's been fighting all this time for. Honestly it seems like a no brainer to me especially in a case where the guilt of someone on death row is being called into question and this happened in the seventies. there are way more advanced tests available. That weren't available back then. Yeah well the way. I understand it with post conviction. Dna testing it's that it's not just about having this pile of physical evidence and the technology detested. The judge has to believe that the results of those tests could change the outcome of a trial. So it's not like in a sexual assault case where dna from a rape. Kit would be pretty definitive. It would prove whether or not a person was even there. We already know that tommy was there. We already know that he fired at least two guns right in the case against him. The one that the jury decided was worth conviction. Had more to do with testimony from felton. Thomas edward williams than with physical evidence at the scene and as the prosecutor said in an interview for the blood and truth podcast series. Dna on tommy shirt doesn't change edward or felton's testimony and therefore probably doesn't impact the outcome of the original trial. And you know i think..

Explain to me how that's supposed to make any sense like anyone wearing gloves. Maybe at some point. So here's the thing. Charlie wasn't wearing gloves when he was found and obviously tommy wasn't wearing gloves. When police showed up that would have been like very weird but during their initial search of the crime scene. Police did find the very tip of a finger of a latex glove but the rest of the glove was never found. No just the very tip of the glove so explain to me. How that fits into tommy's narrative like charlie killed. Everyone then hit the gloves so well before he died that no one ever found them. Well this is an explain why there are no prince but i. I don't think the surgical glove actually had anything to do with the crime. So apparently tommy said he kept surgical gloves. Those latex hospital gloves in the store to use when polishing furniture and jen has palm beach post covered states that initially. Apparently there was like some kind of stain on that little tip. That police thought was blood spattered but when it was sent for analysis it was found to be furniture polish. Okay fine but doesn't explain why there are no prints on any weapons. I mean some of them actually belonged to tami right. Yeah of the eight guns in total all were presumed to belong to tommy but two of the five founded the senior. The bodies don't officially trace back to anyone now. Edward eventually told police that he recognized those two as black market guns that he got for. Tommy at tommy's request six months before the murders of tommy denies that. Okay but guns don't just float with an air and show elva crime scenes. Why are there. No prince yes. This is one of the things that i think makes. Tommy look bad. If charlie came in and shot. Everyone if charlie wasn't wearing gloves. Why aren't charlie's prints on any of the weapons. If tommy grabbed a gun from his office in defense to shoot charlie. Why aren't his prints on that gun. Exactly i mean it makes him look bad. But that's the thing about this case. It's not just tommy story. That doesn't make sense. None of what felton edwards say makes sense to me either like none of it is like you said the whole thing is either to unbelievable to be true or to unbelievable not to be true. And that's more or less with the jury has to decide. When tommy's trial comes to a close at the end of june nineteen seventy-six are felton and edward. Both lying about what happened that night..

"Felon lease seven fifty five eight o'clock right around the same time. Charlie and tommy go inside the store. Were charlie ends up dead shortly after. And what about the other witness edward. Where does he fit into all of this so police after he killed. Charlie tommy goes back to his house to meet edward and they drive in edwards truck to the store and park in the back lot based on edward statement to police. Tommy tries to kill him between eight. Forty eight fifty then at nine eighteen. That's when tommy calls the judges christmas party and asked the police come like help him. Okay i guess what. I don't get as weibring edward into this at all like. Yeah if you're going with the police theory and tommy did this. Why go out of your way to bring in another person into this whole narrative. I mean you have the guys you set up for it. Why go through the trouble of leaving this crime scene for someone to discover on accident you're potentially covered in evidence just to go lure another person there. This is the part of the story that like drives me nuts. Only thing that. I can think that based on felton statement to police. He wasn't planning to be with charlie at the store that night. He was just like hanging around a bonfire. When charlie like roll up in his van on christmas eve and was like. Hey just cover ride with me. So by his own admission he was like an unplanned. Extra in this whole thing. Okay but edward. Edward had a plan to meet tommy to make deliveries that night. So my only thinking. Is that if tommy did stage all of this. He knew it'd be hard to pin. Maybe on one person so he could have been thinking that he needed like two perpetrators so the police theory is at tommy arranged for two different people to meet him in two different places at the same time so he could pin it on both of them. Oh my gosh. I have so many questions but exactly who is thought to have shot tommy then and when police that tommy shot himself with one of the many other guns at the scene to make the robbery story more believable and in the polices theory of events. This happens after. Tommy calls for help at nine eighteen. And that's when they think he's making the whole thing look like a robbery gone sideways right okay and do police have a theory as to why tummy did all this..

certainly the communication not being able to go to the building and and you know at least for me has been a challenge can't imagine these guys in this this uncharted territory and really trying to dig in and evaluate these prospects I know the biggest needs are and I know our players are there they're gonna fall right in that range I think if they stay at thirteen and I'm kind of I mean I have no idea that's conjecture I'm kind of with some of those things that your hand because you don't have a second or third or fourth move back in Ghana more pics to specially when you think about and I think he'll be a player there that will attract somebody out whether it's one of the quarterbacks that fall or somebody just in love with one of those receivers or the run starts on the White House and there's only one you know the big three or the big four left so I think that's going to be the biggest challenge as you know but I I could definitely see them want to get more tax because you think of it up to this draft anything other positions of need wide out I think offense of lined up for sure depending on what happens with the with the Joe Staley and man you know his decision and then corner I mean the the draft is loaded with really good players like there you can start around it's it's it's so interesting to him because so many options here and I know everyone wants a sexy option option of the wide receiver and they could use a wide receiver there's no doubt but tackles two wide receivers I mean if you have about it I mean look at the depth chart there's probably two guys I mean there's guys that are obviously can make the roster that have done it but yeah there's question marks on my you know you're kind of morning this is contract and what he is he's on the look

Davis in the first from people like could you don't watch those guys in college games you you don't know who they are but they make up about an item in the NFL are they have been playing great they got to be our next tournament you can cover him up and protected more scheme yeah this is totally learn would you rather have one of those tackles or wide receiver well in this way I think it depends on Joe man certainly would where you really feel about his decision and Joe Staley's future obviously brown school compliant I got to a particular school in Mike's going to be here for a while clearly this team in the window is open it's it's down now and when you have jobs coming back and you feel good about that I I don't I mean you look at a wide I don't think there's much now do you go from thirteen and moved down nineteen twenty somebody wants to come up due to a fall or one of our guys are one of those white houses there maybe you moved down and you take the US to get the offense to tackle and then you get a you know second or third round pick and you take one of the other white out to thirty one I mean there's a lot of options a lot of the lack of pictures the the the divorce trade admitted to giving these guys you know tremendous flexibility now own about thirteen CM yeah Hey and until my I I think you're a guy I I I'm convinced I'm convinced that the forty Niners need to address the Joe Staley situation even if he is coming back I don't know how good this cold here it is but you have to have that tackle would have a secure tackle but with this with the other one went out and I did that and I totally totally agree and that is the premier that is in the lead position man this offense in this game now Dennis I know you need to but it's a scheme run it's a it's a running game that doesn't count on back when you play when you had to wear a Necro when they're trying to match you off the ball with with flat pad level you know had on how they're running sideways and and making guys run and then like no you don't get in their way and let the running back pick and pick and choose and then in the past the passing game yeah I know you got all this time you had all the balls out so damn quick you can survive in today's game you know without that elite player now you love the album but again I think it goes back to where you feel you are as a team collectively in terms of the big picture and it's it's not when you know three years about one that tackles ready or even two years looking ready to go now yeah and then when you talk about a tackle for this team you have to have a an offense of taco that's athletic I mean there's some big guys are you gonna you know nobody makes anything and no one talks about the Wunderlich and talks about you know the intelligence and it doesn't always show up on the Wonderlic on you know on that and how you guys can get in you know how we test and academically or shows up is how they process information and you know those two seem to go hand in hand in terms of just intellect in processing speed I'm not always certainly there's there's other cases of our guys are unbelievable players but in this demand so much changes when Jimmy cannon plays in the blocking scheme and that's why it's so successful because it's so you know you you you're on my team and then it can really manipulated so you better be bright too I think that's a big one that is Tim Ryan color analyst for your San Francisco forty Niners here on the Niners radio network is joining me rod Brooks Tom Tolbert and Dennis brown get you ready for the draft which starts at five o'clock you could hear it here okay be are the sports shooters online Greg Papa and Larry Krueger will be your hosts which of the receivers do what you like which ones get you going well man I guess it depends on if I'm in the mood of steak lobster all even out you can grab that probably the best of good either way the way you can do it I I I mean I mean getting through that you hear and you read all the prognosticators and engineers the route runner at Lammas after the caption and brother I mean they they've all got unbelievable talent so I I don't know man I I needed to do there I think you take I just think you that Hollister route runner and and specially in this offense and everything they ask people to do with the line of scrimmage I think lamb will be gone it's going to come down between the two Alabama kids or you know some people of that Jefferson out of out of our issue I don't know about that I think rugs make a lot of sense just because of what he's done in college and you think of that speed and think of everything the forty Niners are underneath with the quick game and and Jimmy slamming it through the key hole in the middle of the field on those but crossing routes in and killing people Samuel and all those you know everything going sideways on the move a guy that can take the cap off an annual good one that was always the thing on him that really was enticing for the team but this guy is a complete receiver you can take the cap off no question with a forty seven and you got ball skills and go up and get it so if he's there and they stay there I got I'd love that what would you like to see him get defensively Tim I think you need cornerback help I don't think it's like immediate I am not in the belief that everybody else's live rich Germans don and you know I've heard a lot about Sherman we know how well we played you get a couple big plays in big spots while the owners do so I think they're in better shape the cornerback position than than most people think I think that's a big need so you got to fill the shoes of course Buckner some out and then you gotta ask yourself Solomon is an inside pass rusher can you get your double digit sacks you know I'm very hopeful that he could but I think the the the track record says that he can I think they can survive in the run game you know what your lan if you can come back later but again you got question marks with Julian and Ronnie Blair coming back off the ACL so I I tend to think it's insight diet three technical data can rush the passer I know that teach you it's been lined up I think Black Rock desert land somewhere in that area but yep yeah I think somehow some way they got to figure out to his you know I hated to see coco for sure I think it kept the better player and make a better decision and and are instead of just my opinion we'd love to have them both but you can't financially so you know use a warrior he was terrible he never came off the field he did a lot of things they were really good for the defense and it's going to and you know maybe and again I would give it to me at this the speculation maybe they thought they were going to get a better player in free agency in terms of a three technique if they can plug in I didn't you know in the later the you know the Detroit guys in Detroit and Dallas is not forced partner so they they've got to address that I think some on the strap and maybe moving from thirteen or even thirty one of someone's coming for the Utah quarterback or someone falls down and then you go get that guy at the it's not the second round here a couple second round but then you're talking about interior rushers I'm out I think Derek brown's often will be off the board early but no doubt but Jim Vaughn Kinlaw the soft Caroline I mean he's at I think he's the next guy after Derek brown they can they can come in you can plug in many can play right away because he's such a physical guy and he's probably the second best interior rusher in the NFL I mean our one in the league I I agree with that for sure but I mean I mean you know you mark drops all over the place was kind of a they all seem to be in line with everybody else I don't know if he's there at thirty one yeah yeah does it count for all you know is when you think of all the things that have changed and everybody is out of process for so many years that you go back to when you count on and you talk about happen to lean on your staff I mean this team and I think that it manages played longer than anybody else with the exception of the Kansas City Chiefs who knows how this wacky you know crazy off season is going to go in terms of preparation time so there won't be a lot of changes kind of eleven starters coming back on on defense alternatively you know the quarterback for the for the most part you know they're going to be able to run it I think it's going to vanish plan longer than anybody else because they don't have and and you know hardly any time to prepare depending on what the what the circumstances are but a challenge for the the personality of the coaches and everybody being destroyed it staying at home I'll tell you the Adam Peters and and you know the GM Johnny went in those that count on the and being able to delegate and to the personnel department of the guys on any women I know those guys deserve tremendous credit for what you know done over the years and I think I remembered symbol talking Adam Peters about JB mentality on either got the senior bowl if you don't already have it that combine a couple weeks and I know they got tremendous confidence in the guys that are that are doing all the leg work on anything that they you know they were locked and loaded ready to go at the combine the look out so feel pretty good about it but it's gonna be interesting we always appreciate the time and good wishes continued health to you and your family will talk you down the road Sir W. guys get invoices are December tenth I met back at you thank you very much Jim Ryan our friend and yours joining us on the show I'm here to mention that you know talk about the collaborative effort that is you know this niner offseason and day and getting ready for in dealing with a draft that is going to be unusual to say the least that's how we team operates on the complete on the side of the spectrum Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys Jerry Jones GM is going to be making all the decisions by himself in a room with no one else to check him not his son no one except his good friend Johnnie Walker blue they should be good we'll talk about that and more.

"Awesome. Thank you in your phone. Yeah cool so let's go back to the novel second. What what was the germ was this like the tiniest seed for the novel? Was it a voice a scene image. How did this? How did that ball get rolling? So I I worked in a at a nonprofit at the native American Center for almost a decade in Oakland and I started off there it was actually when I was working at the used bookstore. Part time there I was part time. data entry so at the hockey rink that I that I grew grew up playing that was owned by two Indian brothers but not native American east Indian from Philly and they grew up playing ice hockey and saw. They were both businessmen and saw an opportunity for roller hockey. When in the ninety s at the height and so they started this rink they they had a cousin who worked at the native American Health Center? So Indian Indian center not an Indian but and they said there's there's a thing that we give preference to a hiring policy or a law where you can give preference which is not normally the case. But you can give preference to native people a native organizations so they told me that because they knew I wasn't necessarily focused and needed to job and so I started doing data entry there and over the years worked in many different. Were many different hats at that nonprofit in the Bay Behavioral Health Department at the Health Center. I knew I wanted to to write a novel but I didn't. I didn't necessarily know what and I didn't have the drive to even start until I found out I was GONNA to be a father and that really changed something in me to take writing more seriously. I was writing a lot of experimental stuff very unreadable and something about the seriousness of becoming a father and you know the role of teaching another human how to be a human just sort of switched something and made and made me WanNa take writing adding more seriously and take on like a real project and and so we're driving down me and my wife would drive down to La this maybe two months after finding finding out she was pregnant. We're going to see chilly. Gonzales is a Canadian pianist. And he's very strange. Also rapper producer and we were going to see him live and around on I five and the idea just popped in my head and the premise was just a big cast of characters. All their lives would converge at a Palo at the coliseum. That was the seed. I don't know where it came aimed from. It just popped into my head so when I was a you described it in a moment when you kind of knew it was going to be a novel that now that you are actually going to finish it. I think it had to do with being invited to do. A reading for some of the students at the at who our kids were involved with the with the the work you're doing at the health center. Is that right so it was a year after starting the novel. This is sort of something that inspired inspired me to keep going. I think my wife was the project director for a suicide prevention grant. And we've taken the kids to Alcatraz had elders talk to them about their their time during the occupation and my wife have decided to put together like an author reading series and and she put me into it. Even though I had enough I was not an author or a barely would be considered a writer but But she was the project director so I read in front of these native youth both Something from that first year writing and it was one of the scariest readings I've ever done and and they were really emotionally affected by it and moved by. And they they were not easy to move or to Make do anything so it was. It was a really important moment for the novel for me that I could reach these native youth. It really you know. Give me some energy writing energy move forward. What sounds like it's that moment that you maybe you had years before in the bookstore about realizing what fiction can do right and I I kind of wonder on a probe that a little bit like what is it that you think I I mean fiction can do in a distracted the distracted world that we live in what is it that is so powerful? I think novels levels I mean I think fiction can do anything and that may sound naive but I think if you write a sentence well enough and collect those senses together correct and you can convince people of anything. It sounds like a crazy person. A Hitler sort of statement slightly sinister tone to it but but I'm going to take it on the positive. Is it aside. No I think fiction. I think the possibilities are endless..

"Rising the bookstore. I'm like putting a curse on everything that I love get. Outweigh can guys. This conference is in big trouble because Tommy oranges here. Getting who are who are you reading at the time I'm I mean aside from maybe some of the religious texts like who is really getting excited about fiction at the time Kafka embarrass where the where the I think. They're good bridge from MM philosophy to fiction. So what about those writers really turned you on. I didn't even know what fiction could do. I didn't read it all anything. Anything I read in high school. I was just skimming through to pass a test or you know. I didn't even care to pass it. I just wanted to not drop out of school or not get kicked out And so I wasn't reading really and so when I realized what fiction could do and they really push the limits of what fiction can do in a in a serious way to me Mm I knew I wanted to do it. And I read John Kennedy tools confederacy dunces right around that time and the moment that I realized I wanted to some day. Try to write a novel. I was actually eating a donut and reading confederacy of dunces on a break from the bookstore. And it was. You know that you can be that funny. Finding in sad was just the best thing ever to me. I love the detail of the donut because it also actually. I'm serious because in a way. When you read Tommy's book the level more specificity and detailed that book is remarkable and you just saw him do it in speech that exactly why that novel functions so beautifully? I want to just pause there about literature to talk about music because aside from your from your from the false start in the audio engineering world. You're also piano the player and when did you start playing piano so I fell in love with playing music with the guitar and I was eighteen eighteen and then when I was twenty one I I had a dream where I was lost in a hotel with a bunch of other people that was completely empty. The hotel look no furniture. Anything and we were all looking for the same thing but we couldn't tell each other what it was and I came out to like the back of the hotel and I saw piano and the key. The white keys were double wide. BLACKIES were the same has no significance but they were and I sat down and played a song that I felt came from wherever the deepest feelings you have come from and I and I just knew I wanted to get back to that place so so I went out at pretty hard after that dream right around that time by discovered tea and he is doing something that I I just I wanted to head in that to that territory. Whatever he's doing so we actually have a little clip of Tommy? Playing saying that I'm GonNa ask you. Do you want to set it up at all so I was recently at the macdowell colony And this is not really in the family of Eric's. It this has more sort of a Russian the sound I was obsessed with Rachmaninoff for a little while and not that. This is Rochman enough like this is this is something I recorded at the macdowell colony. I was in my room where I was staying. There was a baby grand and I read. Make a lot of recordings. There's sort of like sketches or notes for future piano pieces that I never develop up to. This is one of those play about thirty seconds of. That'd be great awesome. Thank you in your.
