How Party Leaders Get Ready for the Election in Pivotal Pennsylvania County
"Pennsylvania, a working class area in the northern northwestern most corner of the state. Has long been solid territory for Democrats. Then in 2016, Donald Trump eked out a narrow victory. Now in 2020, the county is again seen as pivotal NPR national political correspondent Don Can you sat down with Republican and Democratic leaders in the county? Jim words. A 41 year old college professor, was named Erie County Democratic Chair two years ago. He wasn't in charge when Trump won here. Still, he's fixated on the numbers just 1967 votes, so a really narrow margin and so for me for the last couple of years, it's been staring at those numbers. There are so many what ifs. What if Hillary Clinton had run a better campaign? What if there had been better turnout in the city of here? But words also gives the trump campaign credit for its use of digital targeting for getting people to make personal contact with friends to find new voters for trump factor in their social media presence in their online presence, and the kind of targeting they did, in some cases with the help of foreign actors and others, it had a very significant psychological role. What says the Democrats goal this year is not to mimic that Trump campaign. It's to build on the enthusiasm Democrats showed in the 2018 midterms and to reach beyond the traditional base. To that end, Erie County Democrats have set up field offices out in rural communities. Words talked as he unloaded boxes of lawn signs from the back of his jeep bed once not jobs. We've made a lot of efforts over the last two years to really talk to connect with rural voters. And these offices or an opportunity to help us put some roots down in places that we should have been for a long time. As for Democratic strongholds, voters are highly motivated this year, he says, and having a woman of color Kamala Harris on the ticket helps boost energy as well. He adds that with co vid driving unemployment up to 14.8% in the county. That should also give some blue collar voters who backed Trump. Last time. Second thoughts now to the GOP effort stickers these, you know, ceramic coasters styles, you know whatever, and hats. We've just gone through. That's county chairmen viral Salman 73, year old retired school superintendent and farmer showing off Trump merchandise at county headquarters. They even have trump 2020 masks despite the resistance of many trump supporters to wear them. Both Republicans and Democrats are having to find new ways to reach voters amid the pandemic. One GOP tactic Trump Boat Regatta Out on Lake Eerie What Salman says they're still doing is much old fashioned door knocking as ever, maybe more if there's a newspaper box out by the road, put it in, but otherwise they go to the door and knock leaves the bag on the door. Somebody comes They stay, you know, way back and with mask on and so forth. Democrats, meanwhile, are being more cautious on that score. Salman says he thinks voters see Trump as better at rebuilding the economy post pandemic. He acknowledges that Joe Biden with his Pennsylvania roots is a very different candidate than Hillary Clinton. There's no Biden equivalent to the lock her up chant at Trump rallies by. I think he's a nice enough older fellow. But look at his record. We've got enough years We've got four or five decades. Is to look at it. It doesn't compare both of these party chairs, no, that Erie County is in play and even with the pandemic, limiting traditional campaigning and providing a powerful political issue, They insist they can still do what they need to do to reach the voters. They'll need to win. Don Gani NPR NEWS Erie, Pennsylvania.
How Police Misconduct Affects Cities and Taxpayers Financially
"For months. Protests over the police involved killings of Briana Taylor, George Floyd and others reinvigorated an intense debate over policing. Then the mayor of Louisville, Kentucky, announced the city would pay $12 million to Briana Taylor's family and institute. A number of police reforms that highlighted an aspect less discussed the financial impact of police misconduct on cities and taxpayers. NPR's Cheryl Corley reports. City's Khun face hundreds of lawsuits every year, charging, among other things, that police used excessive or deadly force or made a false arrest. Many times. Details of settlements are hidden behind confidentiality agreements. Law professor Joanna Schwartz studies how jurisdictions budget and pay for police legal expenses, she says. Although payouts Khun Total in the millions more often there in the thousands of dollars range and with an important determining factor, the number of cases filed and the number of dollars that are paid to resolve cases. Depends very much on where in the country you live claims against Big City Police Department's cost taxpayers about $300 million last year. One of the arguments in the ongoing protests over policing is that money for police could be better spent elsewhere and the clash between protesters and police following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Means Minneapolis and other cities could face a myriad of legal cost. In Chicago. Several groups work to resolve cases of people who have been wrongfully convicted. Two years ago, a federal jury awarded $17 million to Jack Rivera and was considered one of the largest police misconduct settlements in the city's history. I say that was kidnapped by the Chicago police, Roger Li. 55 years old. Now Rivera spent 21 years in prison for a murder. He did not commit framed, he says, by a now retired Chicago gang crimes. Detective Rivera is one of at least 20 who have been exonerated in cases where that detective lead the investigations. They set out to rob You convict me for whatever reasons why Rather, it was just a con the community that they got the perpetrator. Or whatever it may be. It's still not right because taxpayers have to pay for it. Victim's family have to relive this all over again what they think it's closed, and it's just painful for everybody. Over the past decade, Chicago has paid about a half billion dollars for police misconduct. Rivera attorney Locke Bowman is the head of the MacArthur Justice Center at Northwestern Law School, he says in cases where misconduct is clear, said he's often continue to fight against the allegations for months, sometimes years, and that could mean a hefty price tag for taxpayers. The decision to settle a case like that early ends up saving money for attorney's fees. And can result in Ah lower settlement before everybody gets dug in, and the price of the case goes up insurance policies and local budgets usually pay for judgments and claims. Jurisdictions hurting for cash may borrow issuing bonds to spread out payment, add bank fees and interest to investors. And those cost pile up with taxpayer's footing. The bill for police misconduct and as covert 19 devastates budgets nationwide. That could be a more frequent scenario. Chicago City Council Finance Committee Chairman Scott Waguespack says the city is working to break that expensive pattern and concentrating on police reforms so that we're not just saying, Okay, here's another settlement and good job negotiating it and move on, but really look at the deep seated issues within the department to start rooting out those problems. Activists argue tying police misconduct cost to police budgets could help prevent police wrongdoing as well as making police officers especially repeat offenders financially accountable. Currently so called qualified immunity rules shield officers from those costs that's changed in Colorado State representative Leslie Hair. It was the force behind the state's decision to drop its qualified immunity provisions. A new law requires officers guilty of wrongdoing to pay up to $25,000 and that if they were found to have acted in bad faith, violating someone's right, possibly ending in death. That they actually had to be held person responsible, just like anyone else who violated their policies and their obligations at their work with the law also allows officers to purchase liability insurance. Other jurisdictions looking to reduce police related lawsuits may follow that hybrid model of splitting settlement costs between cities and individual officers that just as victims or the families of people injured or killed by police misconduct.

NPR's David Shaper reports. The House Transportation Committee is expected to release the findings from its 18 month long inquiry today. The investigative report documents a litany of problems in Boeing's design of the 7 37 Max, citing what he calls a disturbing pattern of technical miscalculations in troubling management misjudgments. Report also calls the FAA is oversight grossly insufficient, finding numerous oversight lapses in accountability gaps. Transportation Committee Chairman Peter DeFazio. You know this is a tragedy that never should have happened, it could have been prevented. And we're going to take steps in our legislation.

Thes failures contributed to to Mac's plane crashes, killing 346 people NPR's David Shaper. The House Transportation Committee investigation finds that there was no singular technical floor pilot failure that led to the deadly 7 37 Max. Plane crashes in Indonesia in October of 2018 in Ethiopia the following March. Instead, it describes the circumstances that led up to them almost like a perfect storm, calling it the horrific culmination of a series of faulty technical assumptions by Boeing's engineers. The lack of transparency on the part of Boeing's management and grossly insufficient oversight by the FAA. The report details Boeing's flawed design of a new automated flight control system on the plane and mistakes and using outdated and faulty assumptions of pilot response, as well as a culture of concealment. Keeping information from the FAA, its customers and the pilots who would fly the plane. There's something that came out of this that's just mind boggling. House Transportation Committee Chairman Peter DeFazio oversaw the inquiry and says What's mindboggling is that both bowing in the FAA contend they followed proper procedures. And found the 7 37 Max to be compliant. That's the bureaucratic word it was compliant, but the problem is, it was compliant and not safe and people died. The report also details how Boeing employees were under enormous pressure to keep costs down in the plane on schedule. Aviation subcommittee chairman Rick Larson says misguided priorities have senior management drove a number of troubling decisions. In one case, senior management went as far as selling countdown clocks in conference rooms. Making clear to Matt employees meeting production timelines. Rather than safety was a top priority. The congressional investigation is one of many into what caused the Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines 7 37 Max Plane crashes. Christine Negroni is an aviation journalist and author of the book The Crash detectives, and she says, while much of this information isn't new in the hole, what is to me astonishing about the report? Is the death of the sickness and the deep history off both FAA and Boeing, knowing that there were problems with the redesign of this airliner. And the obliviousness of both parties and recognizing that this was a problem that needed to be addressed. Another thing too grown, he finds remarkable is that a number of people did raise safety concerns about the 7 37 Max, but those were either inadequately addressed or just dismissed by bowing. Many of them never seeing the light of day of the F A. A. And that's an especially painful realization for the families of those who died in the max crashes. It angers us to see how how much going did to cover this up and how much f a A has done. To help them cover it up. Michael Stew, Mo's daughter, 24 year old Samuel arose. Stew Moa was on the plane that crashed last year in Ethiopia. He believes evidence in this report now shows that the first plane crash in Indonesia was preventable but then covering up to keep the max in the air after the lion air crash. So that it crashed again and Ethiopian killed. My daughter was unforgivable. In a statement of Boeing spokesman says the company has learned many hard lessons from the plane crashes and its mistakes. And has made fundamental changes to the company's safety, culture and protocols as a result. How's Transportation Committee is now drafting legislation to improve FAA oversight and certifying planes.

Has Globalization Undermined the American Working Class?
"America's working class has been cheated is an assertion that has been getting a lot of currency lately are last presidential election went deep on that claim in both parties by the way and the culprit most often blamed for that. It's that monstrous five syllable word globalization, the philosophy and the practice of free trade which has been great for companies and for shareholders but has had a devastating impact. It is argued on the American working woman and. Man Well Economist do agree that in the past four decades the American working class, which we're defining tonight as people who lack a four year college degree. They have seen flat wages and a steady disappearance of good jobs. But is globalization a main reason that that's happening to those workers and for those workers is globalization entirely bad. Well, we think this has the makings of a debate. So let's have it. Yes or no to this statement globalization. has undermined. America's working. Class I'm John Donavan, and I stand between two teams of experts in this topic who argue for and against this resolution globalization has undermined America's working class as always. Our debate will go in three rounds and then our live audience here at the Saint Regis Hotel and Aspen Colorado where we are appearing in partnership with the Aspen Ideas Festival will choose the winner and as always if all goes well civil discourse, we'll. Also win a resolution once again, globalization has undermined America's Working Class Jared Bernstein you have debated with us before. So welcome back you're a senior fellow at the center on Budget and policy priorities. You were Vice President Joe. Biden's chief economist. The last time you debated with US interestingly Jason Furman who is your opponent at the other table tonight was your debate partner as a team you were formidable formidable I, almost want to use the French pronunciation. Formula, so are you planning to use your insiders knowledge of Jason's debate battles against him to very much am the way to do that with Jason is to make a lot of sports analogies because they repealing confusing. All right. Thank you and I see you detail to Aspen. You were a to aspen well I. Think the guy with the tie is the guy you want to listen to, but I'll let you decide. All right. Thanks very much. Jared Bernstein and can tell us who your partner is. This someone I've known for twenty five years she's a dear friend of mine and I consider her my mentor in this topic feely gentlemen feeling. Theo welcome to intelligence squared your president of the Economic Policy Institute. You've spent two decades as an economist for the AFL CIO, which is America's largest federation of unions. It represents some twelve point, five, million working women and men. You've spent twenty five years working on trade policy. So what got you interested in trade? Well, when I came to Washington in the early nineties I got drawn. INTO THE NAFTA debate the North American Free Trade. Agreement. And I realized pretty early on that. This was not some kind of a dry text book discussion about tariffs but it was a transnational battle over democracy good jobs, workers, rights, and regulation. So I was hooked because a lots at stake a lot is at stake. Okay. Thanks very much thelia once again, team arguing for the motion. And motion again, globalization has undermined America's working class. We have to debaters arguing against it, I Jason Firm. Welcome back to intelligence squared Jason you're a professor of the practice of economic policy at the Harvard Kennedy School you're a senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, you were Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers under President Obama tonight. As we said, you're going to be debating your former colleague Jared Bernstein on the impact of globalization. So is this the first time you to have debated the globalization issue with each other jared and I agree on I'd say about ninety five percent of economic issues and my goal tonight is to bring to one hundred percent. Thanks very much Jason and can you tell us who your partner is someone I've only known for a few years and every single thing. He's ever told me I have believed James Manica Legitimate James Manyika. Welcome the first time telling squared you're a senior partner at McKinsey, and company you're the chairman of their economics research arm, the McKinsey Global Institute, your first time debating with us. But not your first debate you debated at Oxford I did you studied robotics and computers earlier in your career you were visiting scientist at NASA. So how do you go from very eclectic from robotics and space to thinking about trade policy? In American. Workers I've always been fascinated by the kinds of technologies that drive innovation and growth, but also affects what will people in the real world actually do. So when you put that together with the economy, these issues around trade and workforce become very, very important. Those are the issues that motive a great perspective to bring here and then once again, thank you. Thank you again to the team arguing against them.

"Vice chairman senator Patrick Leahy so the the infectious disease rapid response fund at CDC was funded by Congress and twenty twenty as well as twenty nineteen and so its current your money we're running out of that money which is why we have sent over that we plan to do transfer and reprogramming using the existing authorities for twenty twenty appropriations and precisely why we're asking for emergency supplemental if you take you take a half a billion dollars out of the money appropriated for the ball a threat though those are true those would be proposed offsets are trade offs for the emergency supplemental if the appropriators don't want to do that we'll that that's that's just an option for the appropriators you have any of your requests for supplemental funds it requires you they told him he was or that it isn't there were denied by OMB well I'm not going to discuss internal line operations that's not proper to discuss internal devising a proper I've heard that question asked by my during democratic administrations Republican administrations or in my forty years on this committee has been answered I would never answer internal deliberations with the White House but I will tell you I am completely supportive of the two point five billion dollar request it does exactly what I want which is to focus on those five critical success factor areas okay so what you want is a proposal that would divert a hundred thirty five million dollars from other important programs including thirty seven million from rely he millions from substance abuse seven million dollars from Medicare and Medicaid programs with our S. U. deliberation would you just want to cut a whole lot of things we rely well those are those are options for funding half of the cost of the emergency supplemental but if Congress makes a different choice Congress makes a different choice the other have come from that would be emergency supplemental find new money that you would have to come up with things you want so then I need funding the ball of funding your recommendation you're just there for this is a cut that out it's a proposal of how to fund half of the cost of the total is your proposal that is our proposal but if Congress disagrees with other approaches there are other ways to get there thank you Sir center Alexander thank you Mr chairman Mr secretary welcome before we I asked get in corona virus I want to congratulate senator blunt and senator Murray and senator Durbin and lazy and Shelby and members of the subcommittee for the last five years of funding for the national institutes of health over that five years discretionary spending which is about a third of our budget that the federal government spends is going up twenty percent but funding for the national institutes of health has gone up thirty nine percent Republican senator Lamar Alexander and I might add the subcommittee that deals with the office of science in the department of energy the senator Feinstein I work on is gone up thirty eight percent for the best kept secrets in Washington is the big increase of funding for biomedical research and science and I want to congratulate this committee for its part of it I think one of our responsibilities as members of the Senate is to help the American people get a fair view of exactly how threatening to them individually the corona virus is looking around the world there is reason for alarm ten days ago for example there were forty nine thousand confirmed cases in the world ten years ago in China there forty eight thousand confirmed cases today in China there seventy nine thousand confirmed cases in the world in their seventy seven thousand China and we read about problems in propping up in Italy which could get across their borders in Iran and other places South Korea and not only do we have the problem of of a rapidly spreading virus which could jump into our country we have to think about what I was manufactured in those countries could mean for us with thirteen percent of our of our prescription drugs are drugs being manufactured in China for example are we going to have shortages and even beyond that with a quarter or so of everything that we use in this country being made in China well we have supplies for our automobiles and are are other things that we make in this country and what will it do to our economy so looking around the world there's reason to be alarmed but now looking at home let me go through what the facts are at home we've known about this for about two months right about fifty days yes about fifty days and and and ten days ago if I'm right we had detected fourteen cases in the United States I believe that's correct and today we have detected fourteen cases in the United States in addition to the thirty nine cases of Americans have been brought home from overseas and isolated in this country because they might have been infected there exactly imported case and during that time you have begun to develop a vaccine which will be ready for a year or longer but you're doing that more rapidly than any other time in the history of our country that's correct and my question is going to be with this alarming situation in the world what have you been doing right at home the causes to see a situation where this huge country of ours will have fourteen cases a year ago I mean all of ten days ago fourteen today my guess is he's twenty years of preparation by Democrats and Republicans on this committee and Democrats and Republican presidents to be ready for pandemics number one number two it's the extraordinary public health system we have in this country state and local doing their job and number three it's the first and most aggressive quarantine requirements that you've done in fifty years so it were alarmed about what's going on around the world what can we learn about the last fifty days in this country that you've been doing right and that makes us to be able to say ten days ago there were fourteen cases and today they're fourteen cases every time we're around the world cases are going up so we are bearing the fruits actually of our pandemic flu preparedness activities which I was one of the architects of in the bush administration and the Congress funded we're seeing the public health infrastructure from that that is coming up for one of the most important things we did as soon as alerted to this and as soon as we had a genetic sequence and understood the nature of the symptoms of this disease was to alert our state and local public health partners and our health professionals and that's why thirteen of those fourteen cases were identified by health care professionals a student Lee seeing that these were individuals who had been in who they province and presented with flu like symptoms gotten the system and took advantage of that one week develop CDC tests to confirm results so that is that that kind of public health infrastructure of the world's best is the backbone of our response activities here in addition we worked on the aggressive border containment measures and we work with China to try to get transparency and get information we still do not have unfortunately solid information to take to the bank on severity on transmissibility on incubation period on a symptomatic transmission I'm out of time I would think what I'm hearing you say you would do more of what you've already done properly funded yes thank you Sir Alexander Sir shots thank you Mr chairman thank you secretary for being here this committee has a long tradition of bipartisanship and I know secretary you and I've had a couple disagreements and in private and in public so I want to kind of see whether we can find some common ground in fighting the corona virus the president's budget cuts the infectious disease rapid response reserve fund the public health preparedness and response fund hospital preparedness program in epidemiology and laboratory capacity program so given everything that's happened over the last fifty days I want to give you an opportunity and given the context here which is last night you propose the two point five billion dollar supplemental do you want to rescind those cuts to the base budget of your agencies that deal with this problem democratic senator Bryan shots well it's a good question senator as I mention to chairman blonde this is a request focused on twenty twenty money some money to be spent on hold on hold on hold on I'm not asking you about the sun I'm asking you about the president's budget which cuts all those programs which I described and the question is a simple one because I have a couple of other questions I'd like to get to will you resume those cuts will you ask us to restore those programs or will you not so as I said the chairman blunt we will work with you over the coming months as we learn more about this disease on whether to modify the twenty twenty one appropriation request in light of that we do increase by a hundred and thirty five million dollars CDC's budget around preparedness emergency response infectious disease and global health security I'm not going to get too much into the weeds there but I was just over that actually is a such a shell game there are four key programs that deal with this problem they are being cut the CDC overall is being cut by nine percent and so you may have increased a line item or two but that's a talking point that is not the fact of the matter and this committee will very likely reject these cuts but it is absurd to me that you're proposing cuts as at the same time that you're proposing a supplemental on the same topic so moving on how many masks do we need in our strategic stockpile and how much will that cost so we would need to determine through procurement what the cost would be of additional mass I know that this morning in the briefing there was a reference to possibly as many as three hundred million masks needed in the U. S. for healthcare workers we wanted to find that better through procurement criteria we have to frankly established supply here in the United states ability to manufacture as well as to find sourcing of active ingredients such as the filtration materials even the the nickel and copper knows joints that go on the I. ninety five masks over the if we get the money we can actually make that market and get capacity built here in the understood want to work with you on for the two point five billion dollars like the the the the mass in the strategic stockpile the test kit all the all of your five lines of effort it seems to me you don't quite know how much each line of effort is going to cost is that accurate we would have to do procurements to find out exactly what we would our per unit cost would be on the mask because I've been with the scaling up domestic production to doesn't fully exist right now so one doesn't know until one actually procure is that so how do you get to two point five not knowing how how to compile you have five lines of effort you don't know how much that the first one I'm asking about you so you gotta go through procurement you got to build a Mar I understand all that so then how do you get to two point five with any degree of specificity reliability it is two point five billion dollars sort of pulled out of a hat no not at all the two point five billion dollars and then one of the major cost items you don't know how much it's gonna cost you don't know the precise per unit cost but within the range of the hundreds of millions of dollars were dealing with that clearly would be self sufficient I think right now acquisition cost and N. ninety five mask tends to be under a dollar so that gives you a rough approximation but with we have to scale up domestic production do you have a back of the envelope numbers that you haven't yet provided to the committee because it sounds like you have well but it sounds like you have ballpark numbers and I I got I got told by a staff person that this stop no I haven't gone through it with a fine tooth comb yet but but I have been told that this is the least detailed supplemental that they've ever seen for you also and so should we just consider this a marker and you'll give us the details later none the least there is a letter that went off last night which has the the number of the basic numbers and it and as I've told both the chairman and the vice chairwoman we will work with your staff to get you the details behind that there is detail behind that it just last night you got the initial letter okay final question on test kits they were deployed into a bunch of locations they didn't function properly.

"Man. Congratulations everybody everybody's more undeserving. On a first time guys enjoy Jason Brother. I'm happy you made it I wonder who he thinks because he he shouted out Jason Tatum there and so I don't think he thinks he should have gotten maybe over him. I wonder who the guy that he's talking talking about is because I mean I is it lowery. I don't know because because I do think this thing is this guy should be in discussion being when you say that somebody should be in. Then you've got to say I'm not saying players but like media members burgers having this conversation fans if you think. Hey so and so got snubbed or should have been taken out. So that's why I think I I think I'd take our out. I think I would. I don't know where I stand you. Listen I think for for the West like booker is a snub to me. Based on the way he plays for the east for the coaches. I look at it like a clear message. I looked at this as like a message to all the players out there. You're right man. It would have been awesome to see trae. Young happy voted on because there would have been interesting. It's almost like I feel it. trae young didn't get voted on. Then when you come down to it are. The coach is going to put trae young in there or Brad beal and my I guess is if there had a write down one of those two names like let's say Jimmy Butler was a starter right now. They're like getting down to the Nitty Gritty Riding Riding Down these lists and they get down to. We got one more who you who you like. trae young Bradley beal kind of feel like they would have voted for Brad beal. I mean I don't know what they would have done this guessing. I feel like Brad. Beal would have got the nod over trae young if it came to just two coaches like if Jimmy the Butler was a starter in trae how to get on with the with the boat of the coaches I feel like they would pick brab you couple of other things I mean. I'm happy for Jason Tatum. He gets over Brown. I think it could have been a coin flip but I think one of them definitely deserve to be Enzo. TATUM gets the nod over Jaylen Brown totally fine. They're happy that Rudy Gobert finally gets the credit than I think he deserves. I mean I know everyone's he's not sexy all star like setting screens and catching lobsters. He's not going to be doing anything flashy but I think you deserve it so I'm happy. He got in his well. And here's an interesting thing to there. We're going to be as many as nine new all-stars It'll we'll see what happens with guys like Klay Thompson Steph Curry Kyri Paul George Cat all not in this this year opening up the door for a new crop of players which I think is actually really cool and we'll have to monitor Bevan booker could get in those Gal because if you saw last night actually was in practice yesterday look donges. It's rolled his ankle his his status for the All Star game in question. We'll see how it goes so it is still possible. The Devon Booker does does get in which I think would be nice and he would be. I mean he and Donna would would be the ninth player. Who would be a first time all star this year which is actually a really cool wrinkle to this whole thing and the other thing too? I WANNA see moving forward and by the way we should get get into the changes of the format that we will things. I WANNA see moving forward. I don't WanNa see east and West anymore and I don't WanNa see positions anymore. That's what I'm looking for. Who I feel like the coaches will reward big man who defend I feel like the coaches have been ninety voice of reason in all this when everyone is going? Highlight highlight doesn't matter winning and losing my team. My team all of that stuff. What about the guys like the coaches? They're like all right. We're GONNA value one thing we're going to buy you winning the impact on winning so so if that moving forward I would love. I would love if I was a commissioner. I would see if I can get this done. And it seems like with the all-star game they can throw anything out there they don't have to go through the Board of governors and eighty approve or anything like that so I would like to see it. I know there's a Lotta history involved and everything like that. Just give me the top twenty twenty four players have everybody can pick whoever they want the team. Ya Janas Team Lebron all that stuff and then and then get rid of give it. A positions didn't know conferences. We'll see I I agree with you. Let's say let's take a quick break.
