How Inflation Impacts Normal American Households
"Is writing. I was reading your New York Post column before Christmas after Christmas about how inflation actually impacts people because I think that there's a vast misunderstanding of how inflation works on normal American households. Sure. Well, first of all, thanks for having me on. I think about a everyone has talked about inflation and how it's impacted people in the variety of different ways. But one of the ways I think that we have ignored is what is sort of right in plain sight, but we don't think about it. Is the working poor? The people that didn't participate or haven't participated or would never even think about participating in the great resignation. Have, however, have worked, have never stopped working and take great pride in their in working. But the way that inflation has impacted them, it's just sort of gutting them. I went to a free coat drive. It was sponsored by a local energy company in western Pennsylvania. And Brownsville Pennsylvania in Washington county. And as I'm waiting for it to begin, I watch these cars pull into the parking lot of the parents and you know these cars and trucks have all seen better days, right? We've all started the bid there at some point in our life where our car is pretty rough. But it's still getting us to point a to point B but it can sort of pile out. The kids have no idea that their parents are there for charity. But they were there to get a brand new Coke, beautiful coat, actually, they had for children anywhere from the age of toddler up until a teenager and they also got to see Santa Claus. But these people are working and inflation is killing them. They're unable to be able to provide the things the essentials that their kids need, not just meaning coach, but also food, or pay their energy bills or their rent because inflation is just cut into their into their budget. They needed to buy that used car that the old car that they pulled in with. Well, good luck because if you can even find a used car and that's a very real problem. Yes it is. They're up. They're the cost of the used cars up over 31%.

Governor Inslee announces next steps in re-opening plan for Washington counties and school districts
"Hinting at it for weeks. Governor Jay Hands Lee makes the announcement after one year of closure of our schools. The time has come for every child in the state of Washington to have access to on site instruction, his reasoning. We're doing this because we have experienced a mental health crisis for many of our Children. This will provide them an option. That suits their needs of their family is order has two parts, starting with the younger students. April 5th all students in grades kindergarten through six. Most have the opportunity to engage in an on site hybrid model of instruction. And by April 19th all other K through 12 students must be provided a hybrid model of instruction. In schools that are K through five. It'll it'll apply through K through five. Able 19th. Every school district will need to have at least at least 30% of their pre pandemic. Average of weekly instructional hours that will be provided in person for all K through 12 students, he says. Families who want to remain online on Lee will be able to do so. Going on to say the science shows this can be done safely. There are over 1004 school 400 schools that are doing this safely today with minimal in school transmission. There are over 200 School district's who have been able to figure this out. And there are over 400,000 students that have safely been able to enjoy on site instruction should their families so desire. This is a wondrous miracle that we want every child to be able to experience. We know we can do this safely, and we're confident our ability to do that. And there's federal money available to pay for it. And for mental health services for students, passage of the American Rescue Plan Act. We estimate schools in our state. We'll have received about $2.6 billion that's with a B. $2.6 billion in pandemic relief, and I've heard from many educators who would like that money to go to mental health aid for students. With counselors, nurses and other support workers for a variety of the challenge. Our students have I agree with those educators. We need to do this. A spokesperson for the Washington Education Association. That's the teachers union says they agree a safe return to schools is important. In a written statement, she goes on to say the governor's announcement assumes that districts have the ability to provide safe teaching and learning.

Well, because Esther dollars federal relief dollars, I would remind everybody we have one year to distribute those dollars and we will not distribute them to districts. We do not have a viable plan to reopen their schools subject to this governor's order. This year will continue to have that conversation because we know they can get there. They will get there with demonstrated the safety protocols.

In Michigan, Some Are Being Asked To Do Own Contact Tracing
"Health departments in Michigan are so overrun with covert 19 cases that they're asking people to do their own contact tracing Brett Dahlberg reports. There are similar do it yourself public health efforts taking place across the country. Contact tracers in Washington County arm or slammed than they've ever been. There's just so many more people that are gathering and then are exposed. Madeline back Allure is a contact tracer for the county, which includes an armor, so it used to be. You know, we'd have a case and maybe that person had seen two people and now it's a whole classroom full of daycare students or it's a whole workplace. Contact traces get in touch with anyone who's been exposed to a person who tested positive for the novel Coronavirus. Racers. Tell those people about their exposure and walk them through how to quarantine. I call people who have been exposed but who don't have symptoms yet. On dry to keep them away from healthy people who have not been exposed. But the number of exposures is piling up faster than contact tracers can make those calls. And recently, the federal government shortened the recommended quarantine period from 14 days to 10 days. But in Michigan that only applies to some people in some counties, and now they have to explain that too. Yeah, it makes things more confusing. Not only that, but they're making twice as many calls as they did earlier this year, so the Health Department has tried to shorten the time that they spend talking with Cove in 19 patients by getting rid of some interview questions. They're sacrificing information for speed, but they're still not able to keep up. And that's true in hard hit places across the country from Virginia to Oregon on the brink of being overwhelmed. Local public health departments have been forced to try something new. They're asking people to basically do their own contact. Tracing Susan Ringler Cerniglia is the spokesperson for the Wash, not County Health Department in Michigan. She says people who test positive for the virus should start telling their contacts right away. Basically, you know what to do. Don't wait for us to call you because the department can't call everyone. Ringler Cerniglia says they're prioritizing calls. People like the county's oldest residents, those living in nursing homes and people who live in ZIP codes with the highest infection rates, But that means some people outside of those groups won't get calls at all. Public health professor Angela Beck says. That kind of prioritization is a good response to a bad situation. It is a last resort tool. It's not the ideal scenario. Is it better than nothing? Yes, I think it is back is an expert on public health work forces at the University of Michigan, she says. Cutting back on contact Tracing calls means health officials will miss information on where outbreaks are happening and who's at risk. The lose chances to break transmission chains and slow the virus is spread, Beck says. Without enough contact tracers to track the virus at an individual level. The only option left to contain it is a generalized approach. That's part of what's pushing governments toward really broad restrictions, like shutting down into our dining and requiring schools to go online. She says This failure was predictable, the result of years of poor funding of health departments. The chronic under investments in the public health infrastructure in our country has really cost us during covert 19. We can see the consequences very clearly back, and public health officials still want people to focus on the basics like masks and physical distance. And they still want you to answer contact Tracing calls. Just don't be surprised if the person who calls to say you've been exposed is a friend or relative

ICU Nurse On Dealing With Latest Coronavirus Outbreak In Michigan
"Care? And who doesn't joining me now is Dr Machida beer. She's a senior policy researcher. Rand and an emergency room doctor at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Welcome. Thank you for having me. Well, it's great to have you. You're a doctor in Michigan. Detroit was Ah, hot spot early on in the spring. I know you're in Ann Arbor, which is about 45 minutes away from Detroit. But how are things looking in general in the Detroit area? Cases. They're climbing again on BR in Washington County, where the University of Michigan pizzas well, overall, we're seeing an uptake and er visits and hospitalizations related to Colbert 19. All right. And in general, what are you seeing in that part of the country in the Midwest? The test positivity rate in the region has gone up. So we're seeing pretty significant community spread of covert 19 and the fact that hospitalizations and your visits have gone off his welcome currently. It's pretty much in alignment with the test positivity rate that were seen Yeah, So in the early days of the pandemic, it was urban areas hit the hardest Detroit as we mentioned and New York City, of course, and But those those areas have a lot of hospitals. Now the disease is spreading too. Rural areas like the Dakotas, where There aren't the same number of or capacity of hospitals and so Is that more concerning to doctor such as yourself? Where did these patients go? Absolutely. This is such an important question. Uh, so, you know, correct Detroit in New York City and other urban centers. We have a lot of hospitals and health systems. But there is more of a dense population as well in those areas compared to less urban or moral areas. However, you know, no matter which area you're talking about. Hospitals have limited capacities. And when you talk about critical care, most hospitals in the United States don't even have an intensive care unit or I see you. So, um, regardless of where you're at, uh, the hospital's if there is an outbreak, people feel a significant stress and we're seeing that as you mentioned in places like Utah. On Illinois. Most hospitals don't have a nice to you. So what happens with critically acute patients? If you're in a bad state with Cove it? Where do these patients go? Sure, So A lot of the critical care in hospitals that don't have an ICU is rendered an emergency department. And a lot of the patients who need ice. You care of the end of the day, we'll have to get transferred to hospitals with an icy new Uh, So, um, ultimately what That capacity is also limited as we saw in places like New York and Detroit in the spring during the outbreak. You know, Critical care is a commodity in the United States. Critical care beds are limited critical care nurses. Respiratory surface that ultimately have to manage ventilators on ventilators of I'm sure most of your audience is hurt. Mm hmm. Okay, So that brings us to the question of rationing care. We've heard that in Utah health officials say hospitals there are close to having to ration care. Very, very close within days. What would that look like? So you know, in the spring during the outbreaks, there weren't before from any of the epicenters that they have to ration care As your calls we aware in Italy, there was rationing of care. Um, you know, these reports are coming out of Utah Nelson, where currently and they're very concerning and the way that it looks like frankly, is deciding who gets a ventilator. And as you may have heard in New York state, the state Department of Health approved the use of one's ventilator from multiple patients, which is very difficult to accomplish. A kind of planning for potentially having to make such decisions. So it will come down to very sick patients. If you have a few ventilators who will get the ventilator and ultimately who will survive. But it has you know much broader Rickel effect. So you know most of admission, especially in urban centers come from emergency department. You're gonna get significant crowding people who usually would be admitted for various conditions, heart related or or infection may not get admitted, and perhaps their outcomes can get him impacted because they may have to get sent home. And because there's not enough care and resource is to go around. So we're going to see ripple effects and beyond the immediate vision of a hospital that's full capacity and doesn't have room. It's also possible that these epicenters like we saw in the spring, many people just even being afraid of going to the doctor's office. Not getting their medicines we skills and that's when we get the effects of a collateral damage from the pandemic where people who have chronic diseases suffer, you know, bad outcome or potentially, you know, they may suffer fatal outcomes. Because he didn't get the medicine or the care that they needed. Mm. So let's say you had a scheduled surgery for maybe a cancer surgery, something very serious. But not immediately. Life threatening. Would you then be postponed? There. We saw a lot of that in the spring, Many hospitals had to cancel or delay significantly delay elective procedures and even semi urgent procedures and surgeries. On and we may see that again. Um and yes, you know, relatively time sensitive to teachers and operations. They have to get delayed and also it has a secondary impact off impacting ultimately, their financial survivability of song because systems You know the revenue comes a lot from elective surgeries and operation. So it has. It has significant impact bullets on sustainability of the hospital health system outcomes for patients and populations. Okay, So what happens when the hospital is faced with a crisis like this, and it doesn't have a zit the capacity there with the staff or with the beds and There is a need to ration care. Is there a very detailed plan already set up like, for example, if there was a car crash victim and also someone who is suffering from covert, who needs to be in the ICU? Would the plans say? Okay, you treat this person before you treat this other person. Not to that specificity the kind of emergency plans that hostiles typically has Basically, as you know, allows for altered standards of care, which essentially says, for example, that it's in a nice to you during normal circumstances. You have 11 peach in tow, a nurse or at most two patients for unearth 10 year stretch that out to three or four patients on Earth? Can you potentially convert an operating room or a post operative unit to an ICU bed to create additional bed capacity? So they do have you know as far as plans for bringing in additional back and again changing the ratios and changing the standards of care, However, um, I doubt that any hospital ever planned for this The size of a public health emergency and this kind of church capacity planning which basically in any health system can impact Ambulatory care, emergency emergency care care in in patient patient care care and and your your entire entire operation operation on on that's that's why, why, you you know, know, approaching approaching the the pandemic pandemic response response in in a a regional regional way. way. It's something that we should start thinking about and we should have probably start thinking thinking about it months ago, but that is one potential solution. Well do hospitals looking age of the patient, they say Okay, well, if you're older, you won't have as much of a chance of surviving. Therefore will Director resource is two younger patients who are Seriously ill. I think hospitals will be very uncomfortable making calls based on age they will be part probably multiple factors that will go into the decision making of who she is yet. The care if there's limited resource is Hospitals have boards. Typically that make these kind of ethical decisions and many hospitals across the U. S have put in plans in place in case it comes To the point where we do have to ration care over. What we really need is a national standard for this. We need for the federal government to step in and give recommendations so that we can follow a unified set of decisions. Um, asked to who should get the care. Is it based on age alone? Is it based on calm abilities? Is it based on the quality of life? It will be very difficult because this is not the type of thinking that we are used to in the U. S medical system. So right now it's every hospital comes up with its own plan. That's basically how it is correct. Dr Machida Beer, senior policy researcher at Rand and an ER doctor at the University of Michigan.

Trevor Noah condemns Trump's COVID-19 Response
"Back to the daily social distancing show and yes, we are still social distancing pretty soon the top of my head is going to be six feet away from my forehead. That's the plan. That's how I'm going to measure my distance from people hey, what's going on becks they s see you know the reason we still social distancing is because the coronavirus is still spreading, and this is thanks partly to people not taking it seriously. So let's catch up in another installment of our ongoing segments the pandemic. I our pandemic coverage, Hicks off in Utah State in desperate need of the l shaped tetris piece. We now know that one of the easiest ways to stop the spread of coronavirus is just to have everybody where a mosque unfortunately telling everyone to wear a mosque is also one of the easiest ways to spread idiocy after more than one weeks in schools have reopened in Washington County Liberty, action coalition hosted a rally in front of the school district building. This morning up to a thousand people showed up saying the children being forced to wear masks in classrooms is illegal and even unconstitutional. Now have gathered here in front of the Washington County. Administration building calling for. The end of a mouse mandate. If we want to wear a mask, that's fine we can take care of ourselves when George Floyd was saying I can't breathe and then he died and We're wearing a mask and we say I can't breathe but we're for story anyway I'll tell you another reason I'd hate mass most child molesters love them God. Damn. These people were crazy. In fact, you know what they should have. Let them storm the school building because maybe they would have accidentally learn something like I'm still trying to process everything that was going on at that rally no matter how many times I watched that video i. still find new things to process. Like that video is the closest thing I've seen to facebook comments happening in real life I like individual freedom wipe people are the real George Floyd. Happy. Birthday Martha Mask wearing was invented by Jeffrey Epstein. Oh and here's another reason it's hard for Americans. To get the pandemic under control even places do have rules for social distancing. This is how some people follow them growing concerns over Cova clusters especially on college campuses in Ohio police cited several people in a house near Miami University during the Labor Day weekend body camera footage captured a stunning exchange between an officer and a student or there's So, you probably know where I wanNA talk to too many people but you know the the ordinances ten people. Yeah. How many people are in the house? Twenty twenty people inside. You Might WanNa start clearing off the I've never seen this before there's an input on the computer that you tested positive for covid. When was this was? A week ago are you supposed to be quarantining? That's why I'm on my house do you have other people here and you? You're positive for Kovin? We WanNA, keep the site open. That's why. We're so screwed. The main part of quarantine isn't about being at your house, my friend. It's about being away from other people so that you don't spread the disease I'm scheduled. Know where this guy puts a condom on his buddy at this point I'm glad it's just corona virus. Can you imagine this dude handling Ebola wait so I'm not supposed to eat a monkey. Because I got to tell you there was some confusion there. Oh and just by the way. Watching this police officers body cam footage was like virtual reality game called white privilege because this kid was clearly breaking the law but the cups tone of voice sounds like he was telling him today specials Hieaux could I interest you and not breaking the law today? Get a few minutes to think it over and I'll come back so. Some people are misinformed some people a crazy and some people are both. People. Like Donald jaundiced trump president of the United States and one man super spreader overnight at a packed indoor rally president trump breaking Nevada's covid restrictions to court voters. In the key battleground state, we're going to win to that speaking to a throng of mostly mask Liz supporters, his first indoor rally nearly three months. The state prohibits gatherings of more than fifty people but trump defiant of the governor comes after you which you shouldn't be doing. I'll be with you all the while those behind the president and in front of the cameras wore masks, most of the crowd did not. But that didn't bother supporters like meal. Christianson who camped out overnight I'm not wearing a mask that's a shows that I trust my president. Okay look. I. Get why trump fan would have trusted trump before. But how do you still trust this off the he admitted that he's been downplaying the coronavirus this whole time I don't get it. I really don't get what do you mean you trust and this is like believing the Nigerian e mail scam off the he tells you that he's a Nigerian email scam although I'm a small time criminal pretending to be a wealthy prince. Will Send me some money. You know what? I liked this guy's honesty I will send him fifty thousand dollars and as for trump. How you call yourself the presence of law and order when you openly flouting the law and not even for a noble reason. No, it's just so that he can spend nineteen minutes ranting about how vegetables invented by the deep state and Hillary. Clinton and this isn't just about breaking the law. What Donald Trump is doing here is actually dangerous. The last time trump held an indoor rally. He lost twenty five percent of his black friends. So there you have it. Everyone from college students to grandma's to the president himself is helping this virus continue spreading. But I guess. That's the genius of America's Corona Virus Response. Unlike other countries that are preparing for the second wave America realized you don't have to deal with the second wave. If you never get over the first.

"Half hour our program on Tuesday morning December seventeenth two thousand in nineteen and. Thanks for staying with US folks been talking an awful lot about twitter this morning and its impact on some city developments up there in Burlington and police chief deputy police chief etc.. We're GONNA shift gears now though because I'm about all talked out on twitter. I don't know about you but Want to go to and and Focus on on a really worthwhile program here in the Central Vermont area. Call The Washington County Youth Service Bureau. They do a lot of work with our young folks who Some of whom are having a difficult time getting from childhood into adulthood and it's not always an easy road as I think many of us know and this scoop is very active in helping young people try to get back on. The road were Stay on the road if they are making progress In growing up in in our area here and I'm glad to say we have joining us on the phone this morning from the Washy kind of youth. Service Bureau Office. In Montpellier Craig Pinkham is with with us is the executive director there. Craig thanks so much for joining us this morning. Thank you so much for having me. I appreciate it. Yeah and tell us a little bit about the Washington County Youth Service. I bet you can do a better than I can. Well I can try. Yours is pretty pretty good. I think you you acknowledge that you know one of the the the reasons that we exist is because at the end of the day. Adolescence and young adulthood is a challenging time for for all adolescence. And so what we What we specialize? We are the primary youth serving agency here here in in Washington County We're we're dedicated solely to working on and with Issues that impact youth and young adults We work with youth typically between about the ages of twelve. And you know this is one of the really interesting things about youth work over the last ten years We're changing our understanding of when youth. In adolescence. The lessons really ends it. It used to be sort of you know you're eighteen or nineteen year an adult well. We realized now that the the brain and analysts brain science has really changed the way that we think about when in a young person really becomes a functional adult from a from a cognitive standpoint. And we realized that you now our our services are extending up to twenty you know the early twenties he's Twenty two twenty three even in some cases twenty four And maybe even a little bit older so we work with this population as they're going through one of the most significant transitions in life life and transition that can be hard not just for themselves but also for family and friends and those around them and it's a time that can be really exciting and engaging in full of all kinds of great possibility so it's it's dynamic so You hit that nail on the head. What we do is we provide an array of services for youth and families is there as they're moving through this period at it runs the gamut from pure prevention programs that are just about creating an opportunity and community for young people to be young people And explore that dynamic amick phase of life teen centers and other activities All the way up to Substance Abuse Counseling dedicated to directly to youth and young adults family counseling and supports. We work with the Department for Children and families to provide alternatives to Families who might be moving in the direction of involvement with the system or or the juvenile justice system as well. We have a residential program for young men who are transitioning out of adult incarceration And we work with those some of those youths who are transitioning out of foster care. So it's really an umbrella organization we really look at at holistic needs of young people and try. Yeah to kind of meet those needs with an array of services. How many I mean I I got it? It's waxes of Wayne some overtime. And maybe even my season or whatever but but at a given moment let's sake the current moment of you know how many young people are sort of under your umbrella right now. Yeah under the umbrella right now. That's a that's a really. I'm GonNa take a guess You know we. We usually don't slice the data quite that way. But I would say you know at any given time. We're we're probably you know we. We have our team center vary in any given day that you know. That's our teen. Center Montpellier on any given day that that teen center is going to serve between eight and thirty thirty teens All of our direct service programs that provides counseling supports sports and others. We probably have at any given time somewhere around Forty to fifty youths who are who are being seen you know again. Dan at any at any given moment is open Cases the easier way to look at it. Is You know. Throughout the course of a of any given year where serving about Five hundred youths and families families. Well let's talk about the Teen Center for a moment. I occasionally you know downtown. I parked my car outside City Hall. I see young people coming in and out of there. I know there's the teen center in there what what goes on in there so you know our our team center really serves two primary purposes one is just to create a space in community for teens to be teens. So if you were to walk into the teen center you would see musical instruments on the wall you would see you know a video game system and comfortable couches and a and a ping pong table or foosball table depending on. What's what's kind of in in vogue at the moment And you'd see some computer stations and mostly you adjust see young people Being you know young people in a casual AH atmosphere and environment Supported by adult staff members so we have a teen center director. Who is there? Who's sort of you know making sure that everybody is is safe if and and There's not there's not necessarily focused on saying every moment. The team centers open has to be sort of programming productive time. Because that's not what young people are looking for. They're looking for an opportunity to kind of be themselves in a in a place that they feel they belong in and to within community But on the back end there's has an opportunity to start developing relationships not only with the adult staff but with our with our community volunteers who can come in and spend time with the young people there and talk about you know other things whether it be whether it be sort of formal mentoring relationships or whether it be just you know. I'm here to to help You know cook the Friday Night Neil And and teach new recipe that I learned from my grandmother and so so that moment of sort of In a in a very casual relaxed environment creating that space where where those relationships can build because at at the end of the day youth where perhaps almost more than any other human services is really about helping to build relationships with young people. Because I think the common misconception exception is that the young people really are looking to you know avoid relationships with adults sort of shy away from that when in fact the inverse is true. They're really looking to understand. They know they're on the pathway to kind of becoming adults and they went to understand how to do that work well and so having adults who can be in relationship with young people Is is incredibly really important. Not only to you know to to the program but also to the young people who are participating now center opened pretty much to any teen gene wants to walk in there and And hang out and see what's going on it absolutely is. It's you know while we currently have just one team center in Montpellier They do not need to be a my pillow resident to to attend. In fact we have Youth from from Northfield from Berry and and other places who are able to kind of get their you know the logistics of getting to inform the teen center is sometimes a barrier. We don't provide transportation. That's that's not something that we're able to do but we do have You know families who who who Take advantage of it even though they're not living me but there's no there's no membership there's no charge. This is something that we've been doing free of cost since the team center's inception and I I should say because it's part of what this center is all about The the origin of the Teen Center in in Mongolia with it really was started Almost forty years ago by teens There are a group of teens who are kind of hanging out At the on the steps of City Hall and the City Pill Your approach them and said what what can we do to help. And they said we'd really like a teen center and so one was created for them and and shortly after that we organizationally got involved in running it but it still is a space that has really run by and and with the input of the of the young people themselves. And now there's talk I understand of possible. Ah Very very fledgling idea understand still possible new teen center in Berry. Yeah so I was actually just talking with Had A meeting with the with the mayor this morning. We've we've been talking about this for for a while and bury the City Council has dedicated some space and has has kind of move forward with the idea the recognition that they want to teen Centring Berry. You know we one of the other things that we do that we didn't talk about because it's not quite as Germane to the to the listening audience but we also have a number of statewide programs Part of our mission is to really promote and develop youth care work throughout the state and longtime ago when there was more prevention dollars available For for nonprofit youth service work we had a coalition of teen centers and we helped to develop teen center so not only are experience but our experience working with teens centers around the state. We we know that the the the the the concept of Teen Center to the outside sort of let's go. It's just a place where youth need to go. So you get some donated couches you get donated ping pong table. And you're you're you're good to go when when anyone who's had anything to do with the Teen Center knows that a teen center is a space when done correctly For High Quality Youth Care Work to happen. And and anytime you do that A far more sort of thinking and planning and budgeting has to go into that. Then I think a Lotta people sort of think Gee we can just kind of staff it with volunteers and and it'll all be good So what we're doing with the city of various really working slowly and carefully through the if in fact we can figure out how to support. Would it and pay for it in a sustainable way We're we're more than supportive in in in in the idea of having something like this in Berry There's been a group at spalding. That has group of students who've sort of indicated that one of the things that they would like to see in their community as a as a place teen center The library is a is a place where a lot of young people congregate. and that's fantastic. It's a fantastic way to use that resource but it's also a shared community space and so having a dedicated space for teens. This is something that the the city's really interested when I said what does he teenagers around town and and occasionally you'll glimpse of an interaction between the teenagers and Nadal's just like on mainstream stadium or whatever Occasionally there seems to be a little bit of I dunno stand-offishness or Arabia. Even almost some fear it seems and I don't know if you know what I'm talking about there but I'm just wondering what do you want to say to adults about our teen population around here. Yeah I used to do a lot of youth development training and Youth Work Training and I used to call the the Cross ca street ah Ca Syndrome. I'm where where you know. The typical reaction for an adult might be when looking at a group of young people Is You know they see them on the street and they literally cross the street walk the rest of the way down on the no you know kind of make a u-curve right back onto the other side and then it's clear that there's some avoiding you know behavior going on and what I would say that it's it's really interesting to to sort of observe COSC- that Because you know the the average Adult won't necessarily sort of have that same reaction to a group of adults that are that are congregating. So something's going going on in our brain when we think of God young people rate what I would say is take opportunities to to get to know them. I think a lot of if the misconceptions that exist around around youth and young people are really about Just that they're they're misconceptions There is something really amazing going on in the human mind as it goes through the developmental process of of adulthood a emerging into adulthood so much changing so much as is happening as the brain is making news social connections New ways of thinking and seeing the world new ways of understanding. You know it's the personality of the self and what I would say to those adults is. This is the moment to engage not to move across the street and go in the other direction but to actually sort of reach out to that young person or that group of young people and say hey. How does this community look to you? What do you think about the future of this community? And how do you see yourself in the future in that future because generally speaking most that young people while while.

I've often asked if people who use twitter are twits but anyways that's now stop at. Yeah I I was too good either. I I've been thinking about this Somewhere in my basement in a bookshelf. I have Aldous Huxley's brave New World World and a great guy named Neil Postman back in the eighties wrote a book amusing ourselves to death that served communications at Nyu. Oh and and he talked about his well-focused on or rose nine nineteen eighty-four however we're evolving more towards the World Huxley decide decide we need to be titillated you know. We need pleasure short attention spans. And all this stuff and you know twitter in many ways represents all that and and while there may be some quote value within the context of today's Times. I'm wondering we need the larger discussion of where we've evolved as a society and as a culture where would become dependent on these kinds of media That's what concerns me older all so I I'll I'll stay away from twitter and you know I was in politics for a long time who writes trump's tweets. Well Eliot are they all trump. You know as well as I do. Politician puts out or not bad. They likely didn't write it. I sign off on it and then the other thing is talk to it and that's what concert.

Who knows what's GONNA be happening ahead of time? And they play the market on it. I mean I think that there are so many implications from this that we really need a deep look at At what is going on just not with the president of states with so many other things so I can't condemn people for using twitter twitter. I won't but I I won't use it myself. It just is just such a knee jerk. React if things in so many ways That I think it's a dangerous off. Well that's that's a I mean. Here's here's a concern.

It's very responsible. We're very responsive to the public yup and then behind the scenes. It's nice to have a lot and this is just one particular example. I don't know anything about this. Charlie Winkelmann but he just just seems like a guy who you know. He's got some strong opinions and was surreptitiously being punished. You know whether that means the guy should lose his job auburn. And I don't know about that but you know yeah. I'm just asking the question. I'm not really sure where I come down in this. Frankly but I I You know I guess it would part of it is part of a two is is when you say. He's being punished Winkelmann being punished. I sort of say well you know as when I was working as a reporter I used to say that you know not only am I looking for. Public officials have somewhat of a thick skin. But I I gotTa have a thick skin myself. So if you're going to be a critic get ready folks. That may be one one lesson for some of this but who knows I mean a lot of all the all these Thoughts some expressing subjects to double checking later on in the middle of the night. When I say why the hell did I say that a guy? Thank you so much for the call I appreciate it. I'm going to go to bill in ran off. Good Morning Bill. I just have a short comment or a question. Are you familiar with Cambridge Jenna LYRICA and I'm concerned about elections in this. This sort of I don't twitter by the way but I'm concerned about elections and There's a DVD called trumping democracy. Yeah I listen I think I. I think you're onto something there. Big Time in terms of this stuff does have an impact. It is worth analyzing from that perspective for sure deeply and carefully and really wondering wondering and worrying about it frankly so the fact that you raise Cambridge Analytica in this context. It's right here. That whole that whole story of of organizations alleged impact on the twenty sixteen election for instance. It's a big affect on the twenty twenty.

CBS News about Goings on in Washington related to preparations for what we believe will be a vote tomorrow in the full House of Representatives on whether to impeach the president of the United States States Donald J trump. But before we get to that. Let's go to a A listener who's on the line has been waiting patiently to get a word in edgewise year. I believe Diana's with us from Burlington Morning Diane. Yeah I'm here. Well I just got really curious. Everybody was complaining about you know so I went back to twitter and checked it out and I loved good videos a lot of times. I don't even read the other tweets. Great Videos let me tell you You know the Are you are you fairly new to twitter. Have you checked out much before they tried to get me into it when I was a tea partier. But you're very mechanical. Yeah Yeah I think that's one thing to recall here Worthwhile is that a lot of folks out. There are still either like never use twitter war or have you checked out a couple of times but don't have daily habit of it and then there are other people in our society who basically live on it. They just do so much of their stuff on on twitter and to some extent on facebook but it seems like twitter is even more when it gets into somebody's life becomes even more ubiquitous. I mean more more present more More it's always there. Yeah and and and the So I it's just kind of a strange thing and I and I and I think it's really worth thinking about and and trying to analyze its impact on our lives and and the degree to which the odd thing is that it's got a huge impact and some people's lives including the lives of people that are important figures in our community. You know the mayor the police chief the check out the president but I did not check out the mayor or the police. You ought to do that. Yeah well it sounds like you may be getting twitter. Diane I answer I welcome to the twitter verse. I guess I don't even turn the computer on mostly. Yeah well that's That and a a lot of our listeners a year of WD Eve you're like that they And you know. I'm a little bit sympathetic. I like the fact that when People WanNa push a button or or do get do anything electric. They're they're what they're doing is reaching for their radio in two D in the Dave Graham show.

I don't know exactly We didn't have a specific time limit. Or whatever the report stated ahead of the show here. I was hoping that we'd be chatting right up to the top of the hour with Colin. Quinn I did have a couple more questions I wanted to ask him. Including maybe we'd give it a taste of the upcoming show. He's going to be doing it higher. Ground this Friday evening here in Burlington and he is He's a he's a quite a trenchant guy. He he really has a lot of a lot of interesting observations to make about things and he shows a coming to the higher ground is Called the wrong side of history and we we are Proud to be Helping him get the word out about it here on. WD the Dave Graham Show and If I'm curious to know what are are says. We have a few minutes to spare here if there are listeners out there were thoughts about About twitter and its role in Sort of shaping history. It's literally true that now that the history of the city of Burlington has has turned to to no small degree in the last last of really seventy two hours and it all started with twitter now Maybe as Rama from williamstown wanted to tell me several Half half hour or so ago that I'm missing the boat here that I shouldn't be shocked by this and the twitter is a real thing and it's here to stay and it's and it's a An important place to do public discourse scores these days and so. Let's all attention I that's still something May. Maybe it's a matter of teaching an old dog new tricks here. but I'm still getting used to that idea. I guess is an and I think to some degree because there's so much on twitter that Were people don't seem to be taking things seriously really You know there's just so much SNARK and So much show satire and so much razzing of other people and insults and all the rest of it that It it has given me a taste. You know when I when I go on twitter and I do have as I mentioned to twitter accounts. Don't use as a much. You're welcome to follow and you'll be bored Maybe I'll start start getting more active so you'll be less bored but Wow this is This is really quite a quite a phenomenon on that we have these fake accounts that And it makes me wonder. Is this a really common thing for not just police officers. We have the chief and the deputy chief both with fake fake. Social Media Accounts They'll del Bozo was doing that on twitter for all of an hour and then they come out that the deputy chief Jan rate was doing doing that on facebook. And and maybe there's a role for that You know people are looking at John writes account and saying there's as is a Colin mine was saying earlier that he was talking to one journalist who said that Jan writes comments on her facebook fake facebook account for like something that this journalist mom would say. Hey and I looked at some of them. They seem pretty reasonable. And so very interesting. Hey You know what Colin Quinn rejoins us now so glad to say thanks for getting back with us. Sorry that's all right. That's okay I had to filibuster there for a little bit but I it's so so give us a taste of your Friday. Show what are you going to be talking about. Well I'm going to be talking about obviously what we just talked about the Internet and and the whole the whole idea of of of society like you know I mean my lehrer show is really about The civil war that this country's you know in or GonNa have the wars you know and now it's sort of like I'm just wondering like what's the end game for all of us here like everybody it. Just it's fascinating because everyone knows also a problem you know in society right. Yeah but it's like everybody just keeps going because and then you start to realize. Oh that's how things happened. In the history of the world people were just like. Yeah well what are we going to do about it. We all know what's happening but he can't stop things so it's kind of like that's where I feel like we're at now every just kind of running around you you know not getting along and the way it always happens in my view is people from the you don't you and this is worse than that. By the way is that you don't get to decide who speaks for you so for example. You don't get to to decide who represents you so right now. Let's take the Democratic candidates for example right so couple of them are probably reasonable yet. You you don't get to decide that the Internet the extremists elements of progressive. People will decide. It won't be people going. Oh this person's okay. Ah like Buddha judge now under the gun and for whatever reason Bernie is like now almost like you have to. If you don't toe the line ideological if you don't really march lockstep with the most you know very linked people of you party right or left you'll get you'll get pushed aside and that's Porsche a lot of that has to do with the Internet so being any in any way. Moderate is now a bad thing. Yeah where it's a sell out or considered You know so so the and anybody has a history of taking corporate money which is ridiculous because who could not you know what I mean and just it's crazy it's it's it's getting weirder and weirder so it's like there's no nobody intelligent speaks each honestly because that would be a dumb move. You Know I. I've checked out some of your stuff and and I mean you are definitely a trend observer of International Affairs National Affairs. And I WANNA ask you one thing. We think seems to be heating up again with North Korea. I mean these just kind of weird right here you just said but I mean imagine if we got into some kind of real problem with somebody around the world so things are heat up with North Korea. My son I want to ask you this my son my son said That if it ends up with trump and Kim going Mano Amano. He's betting on the fat guy with the weird hair. Do you think that's safe bet. That's a great line. I thought so too. But here's this. He's head part physician wearing now as a country country Something with Cam is the only thing. Take US 'cause we impact us. Nothing an outside force where people Alexa go. Oh so now. It's life and death so I'm not going to be you know fighting over the minutiae you know what I mean like. That's almost like that. It's almost like what what has has to save you after nine. Eleven whenever they got along for a few months and God forbid but the country right you know I mean that's the truth about everything you know. I tell people like if you really wanted to solve Israeli Palestinian conflict you would have outside force a fake force course attack them both of you know. Yeah Yikes and they'd be like. Oh that's the only way you'd have. I don't know if I'm ready to go there. But let's we'll we'll both keep thinking about it like I get you part of that so call it.

No welcome to the Dave Graham. Show thanks for joining us off on wall and I just got to ask you first off. I mean you've been you've been on with Seth Meyers. You've been on with Stephen Colbert. You've been weekend update Saturday night live. It doesn't get much but I mean how does how does it feel finally make the big diamond beyond the Dave Graham Cher wd. Yeah I'll try to keep it. I'll try to keep it. Aw Okay no we really we really appreciate it and and I I know you are. I've been reading up a little bit on on on your staff and I gotTa say you have a unique view of the world. One thing that I saw recently I was doing a little reading and I discovered that you had Opined in the past that in the separation seperation of powers of our federal government A lot of people here in civics class and it's all about the legislative the judicial and the executive branches of government. But you you actually have. I think observed that it's more like Moe Larry and curly. I don't remember saying that but yeah it makes sense because I guess I guess well Mo- would be the president's personnel Kinda. Know think about it who's lying. WHO's calling I? Guess the a positive ultimately. I think we'd do. I think we need to refresh this right. Now it's really timely. Given what's going on and everything so you know. As long as he was maybe in the course of this half hour. We'll we'll we'll write a new a new script for it and you can use it on Friday night when you come when when when you come to higher ground because it it's GonNa. I'm sure it's going to be an excellent show. I mean you your tour is right now is called the wrong side of history. Do I have that right. Yes and why are you on the wrong side of history. Well everybody is in my opinion because I feel like every mistake mistake every civilization makes is thinking that you manage evolves instead of just realising. It's out of out of forces evolve but human nature stays as the same like even when you look at the Internet. We love to take people down to just like when time began. You know what I mean town squares that when they were just you know flog people are Joe. Blue states are not very evolved. Evan isn't it. Isn't that amazing. I this is really fascinating because and you should know this I I actually wanted to tell you this. In the course of our conversation this morning you come into the Burlington area you should know. The big news is happening in our in our local town. Here it's just. It's pretty phenomenal. The the former now former police chief a man named Brandon. Del Pozzo been in the city about about four years and And he he got into trouble because he said of a fake twitter account round last fourth of July for all of an hour and and he And he started put up all these snarky tweets about a man living in the city of named Charles Winkelmann Great Dame and the chief. The police chief called the. It's called his twitter account winkle watchers and was basically dumping on this Guy Winkelmann. Who's been dumping on a Police Department and the chief Sarah Sarah era and All in a fake twitter account couple weeks later of reporter from local weekly seven days calls up the chief says hey chief. I'm hearing that you put up a fake twitter account and picking on Charles. Winkelmann is true in the chief. Denied it like a dozen times a thirty six minute interview so the so you know the cover up is always worse than the crime. Walk the chief so the chief the chief it gets into hot water and you know all these months later and finally all comes out long story short. They held a news conference yesterday. Announcing the achieve resignation from the Burlington Police Department. They appointed a woman named Jan Right. Deputy police chief as interim police chief later on yesterday afternoon and she goes to the mayor and says hey mayor by the way I have a fake facebook account. So maybe I'm in hot water to and so the she's now demoted back to deputy and they they try not and not the other deputy as the as the acting police chief in Burlington and I know this is all really weird to me. Because I'm still trying to get used to the existence of twitter and it take twitter seriously and and to think that you know city policy and personnel decisions going to be made based on anything related to this strange phenomenon. That symbolized by a little blue bird makes me think. What are we doing you talking writing a lot about this community with the fact that that missile so much a part of our identity individual go go where you know? We're really does matter. You know because on the one hand like even five years ago I go. What are the in idiot? You have a job like that you oh can't be going on facebook and twitter but now we know if you're not on you don't feel part of society so I get why they're on but other doing the sake attack you know he's like hey I wanNA fight back against this guy but you should know that if you're an authority that somebody's GonNa catch you you know and eh I mean how can you not have the perspective to go you know what this is a minefield but I understand nowadays that everybody's like but I have to be on or it don't exist. Is that weird. I mean there is a lot of pressure there. I must say I will resist it. I'm I have a twitter account. In fact I think I have to now one official radio radio station account and the other one of my personal account I I use them. If you add them together I use them less than once a week. So sparingly his best and the other thing yeah. There's another thing I've been thinking about lately. Is I see the people that go what I call twitter crazy. You know where you watch them build this addiction. It's it's obviously some kind of it obviously. Hit something if not just about what is it appears on the surface. There's something going going on. Psychologically because you'll watch certain people start to build install it a couple of tweet. Hey Yeah you know and then you watch them grow manic and go obsessed and then to the point where I hate their guts on social media. Even though you meet them in person like that person's Norma look. I mean I'm not telling people I'm talking about hundreds of people. Yeah I I know what you mean. It is a really bizarre kind of a kind of an experience out there and and I mean I guess it is a little like addiction to drugs or something because because you can get totally caught up in it and I. Sometimes I used to think when people were first telling me you know. I worked as a journalist for a long time. Vermont in the last few years of my career doing nat I people were telling me you gotta be on twitter. You gotTa Build Your brand you gotta be on facebook. You GotTa do this and I sort of think I sort it would say to people I folks I. I kinda already have a fulltime job. I thought like writing stories. You know I was a pretty busy guy as a reporter even before. They told me I should spend hours a day on twitter so You know I never. I mean that's part of the issue is just the time sync problem album of the social media and then and then and then you sort of say so if I'm gonNA spend hours a day on social media what else am I giving up. What what'd what did I used to do with that time? Exactly and it'd be and like you said that much time it's really it's we've we finally lost it. You know yeah finally cracked but it but it really is an interesting. The psychology behind is really interesting. Because would mean that you know what I mean like. Maybe I need to change my thinking I have the I had a caller call up twenty minutes ago or so and say that I was sort of Pooh poohing twitter and say how is it that people even taking this stuff seriously enough to fire a police chief chief or whatever yeah I never take it seriously myself and you know you need to get with it basically. This is where the world is happening these days. And and maybe that's right. Maybe I need to go and spend some serious time on twitter and really start to speak the language and and You know doing always least studies and what everyone is saying. You know people want time. They spent on social media the more depress you take the same thing with TV. It's like you know on the one hand if you do you watch. TV instead of read like in eighteen sixties. You obviously not going to be coming down on the other hand it's like You know the Kings when he finally drank the thing and then he became popular again. You remember that parable the king. The town's insane and it's like so if you didn't watch TV and you're just reading in nineteen sixty seven making all these references and you. I don't know what they're talking about because you don't watch TV. The same thing happening with social media. I guess you know where it's like. You have to drink the wine and makes you mad right now because Yeah so in a way you're even though you're right the smartest move tell you right now just drink it with the rest of us that that's what it is. The Cup keeps coming fast. I keep going and finally one of these days all okay there we go. Every agrees is not nobody. Nobody thinks healthy. That's for sure. Yeah well I mean it must be a way to await a navigated it that We're we're in. You can still have some kind of a balanced life. I don't I don't know exactly Well I just I just go on and make like ironic you. The statements all day. I never I never. I never say anything sincere in my in my years on twitter since you and I wanted to go back to that from one because you see me. That's a really good point Colin and it because I think a lot of people regard twitter as a place to just engage in kind of goofiness and and and frankly as probably a good reason that people need a place to go and be goofy and if twitter is going to be serious twitter is going to be regarded as this major. And I guess you with this president and it's now a place for international statecraft and national national policy setting and etcetera economic the economic. I mean we we a new stock markets with a tweet. I mean that's just to me is like what and a so so if twitter is going to be that then maybe we need yet another social medium idiom call snark or something where people can just go on kind of ragged each other and have fun. You know how you're all elements like that already. uh-huh yeah I know but they need to be sorted out better because I think people don't understand that I mean all going on I. Could you imagine this police chief. He's got this guy in town name. Winkelmann who's of crack and he goes on crises called winkle watchers and so far we're having fun just like the very name winkle watcher sounds like he's trying to the fun right so all of a sudden. Now it's as big serious thing where you lose your job over it and he also lied about it later. which is you know again the cover of course lew Lecomba the cover up worse than the crime but but it but still I just I think we all I personally need to get used to this idea? That hat that twitter is is something to be taken seriously right after the show. Go on there. I'M GONNA take down my fake twitter account which I've been calling at Real Donald Trump. I don't know if you knew that one but I'm only kidding folks it is it is something something very strange changing society with all the stuff. Yeah it really bizarre. It's really really bizarre. And you are I'm sure you have you been to the Burlington area before. Oh Yeah I was there a couple of years ago addition as you can I call you back because I have another call. I have to take on this other line at nine. Oh all right yeah. That's cool let's let's let's let's let's go ahead and we'll we'll we'll do that. Thank you very much. Call you back in about ten minutes by sounds good. Hey see from Newport's online good morning. Ziggy you're an analog man in a digital world what are you doing about twitter..

That's a park that covers two thousand five hundred acres in Washington county near west fork in north western Arkansas and the ground is largely sandstone.

Terry loveless was in his fourth year of a six-year term with the US air force from October twenty fifth nineteen seventy three to Tober twenty-fourth nineteen seventy nine. That was the term of his service. Carey was happily married and best friends with a colleague he calls Toby who was also happily married, but for this first camping trip the two men decided it would be safer and easier to go on their own without their what? Well, what happened in their first hours at their campsite is now the subject of a twenty eighteen book entitled incident at devil's den. A true story by Terry loveless Esquire. He wasn't attorney became an attorney after his air force years. Terry is now sixty three years old, and that juris doctor degree that here in from western university of Michigan law school after his air force days was put him into a legal career in private practice in civil litigation and criminal defense. He entered public service as an assistant attorney general and later as general counsel for LBJ tropical medical center in the US territory of American Samoa. And then later he was an assistant attorney general for the state of Vermont until his retirement in twenty twelve the following interview begins with what happened. And after those two men set up their tent, and we're looking at the night sky. When Toby was I see three stars in a triangular pattern that his amateur astronomer is did not recognize here. Now is a turning Terry loveless from garland, Texas. Toby turns his head to the left. Over there. Those three stars. What are they? And then they moved they rotated. I turn like they wanted access and they won't eat is almost three hundred sixty degrees. We were excited. Hey, look it's ever seen anything like this. Stop. And then they started to move straight up in the air the higher than you got further apart to three points of the triangle park, and you could see the inside the three stars of the triangle. It was jet black as opposed to the night sky outside which was dark blue this is flown solitary object, and we saw. U S stars. And they would link out until it is passed and star was linked back on the net confirms. Yeah, we're looking at one solid objects. And this things eventually moves and stops directly over our heads. And it is enormous and guessing three thousand year any sound from this huge thing. No, we didn't hear any sound and the tree frogs and the normal sounds of the forest was very very still and Toby said he has it's cheap flashlight, and he said I'm going to signal it any hold the flashlight up over his head. And he flashed his three times as soon as he brought his hand down and lay the flashlight down directly from the center and underneath this thing. There came a column of white light. And it was only about six inches in diameter. And it was centered directly in the middle of our campfire, which was just pretty much. Embers anyway. A pencil thin. Blue Ridge publish light came on from underneath said center of the triangle. Hits the campsite and this little beam of light. It was like someone switch. It would be on for a millisecond. Then they flip the switch off. And then and then flip it back on. So we never saw the light move. We just saw turn on. And if it'd be hearing the narrative here in the near and dancing all around the campsite, and in that stop, and we both just later and Toby says, I guess shows over and I grabbed my air mattress at his and we dragged them into our little tents, and I didn't bother doing trust anybody to take my boots off and I sell on the air mattress. And the last thing I remember was hearing Toby snoring. Softly. And I was just out. My next memory is. Noise. And this is like an engine running much loud as it is powerful. If you've ever stood next to a train locomotive. There's that strong pulsing in senior chest. I could hear this noise. I'm awake. But I'm not with it. I'm trying to claw my way back into consciousness, and there's the slut of greenish white and occasionally yellow, but mostly greenish white life. Slashing in the worst and lighting it up like a three hundred watt bulb in these flashes. I get up, and I realized that I'm in a lot of every Muslim my body hurt got my knees. And that's when I could see the Toby had been crying 'cause I could see track secures down tastes like what could move this, man. The cheers. You were shaking realized I was trembling too. So something was out there. Obese on his knees. He's peeking out through this test, the little flat, and I pull the flap back, and I look out. And I see these little kids, and there's about a dozen maybe fifteen and they're paired up twos and threes kinda wondering around, and that's those. Eight kids. It took us, Jerry. You remember Terry? They took a hurt us. I was absolutely terrified out of my wish never in my life and I've done so scared. This thing that we watched that we saw earlier in the evening head descended. It's now thirty feet over the metal. So now, we could see because it was so close how big this thing actually was the city block on each leg of the triangle, and I s to meet it's tight at five stories. It was like someone had levitated a five story office building and suspended thirty feet over the snow. A white lie about thirty feet. Diane shining down from the center of this thing. And we're watching these little guys clearly these were not human these been backwards. It was like niece were hinged both ways. You saw their knees. Swivel from front to back to front to back. Yeah. Kinda yes. This was not the gate of a human being also the tips of their hands was with their knees. Their arms for longer than they should have been their heads were disproportionately large, but not grotesquely. So we weren't close enough that I could see clearly there is or facial features. But these little guys walk in pairs and threes into this column alight and stuff, and then they would dissolve in about two seconds in the slides. They would just disappear I can recall the sensation of leaving the tent, and that was a brilliant. Life flash in a twirling sensation. And then it was like, oh, we're in there in that big triangular craft when I found myself inside the interior gave the impression that it was twice as large. The interiors is did not match the exterior signs, and what were you seeing in that huge interior space? First thing that I noticed a life. They were light panels all over the place, and it was brilliantly lit on the inside so much. So that it hurt my eyes. My eyes were swollen shut as Toby's after this incident. But the inside of the place was just incredibly brightly lit. Everything was stainless steel for white light panels on the floor and the walls and on the ceiling light, I saw three flying saucers three this and they were lined up in a neat little road. Just like your craft below carry. Your deck was a legs sporting them the dome in the center that was kind of smoothly molded into the top of the thing. There were candles that I thought were windows what were their shape swear perfectly square? What happens Toby, and I we're standing next to one another, and we were paralyzed all I could with my eyes. And I assume this all this will be could move. I'm straining my eyes to look at these sauces s when I noticed there were a group of people that were all news, and they were frozen like us. These are other humans. They are other human beings. They're nude in the same mixture of men, women and children. They're close enough that you could see the terror in their eyes. They were as afraid as we were. But they were segregated from us. We weren't a part of their Bruce. Did you have any instinct to Paul to them? I couldn't I couldn't speak. There were two other things. That happened there that were very important. And that was I noticed the guys that were other human beings, they wore distinctive uniforms, Tim uniforms with around patch insignia on their shoulders, and they were five or six one of them was a woman who appeared to be Hispanic or Latino shedder Erin appoint jail. The other men that we saw were all guys are age twenty two with military haircut. Trim completely ignored wouldn't that look at our direction? Wouldn't that look in the direction of the other people Terry am, I understanding that you had the impression that in addition to you? And Toby a group of humans that are all nude paralyzed male female and children that there were five or six what look to you like human beings in these beige jump uniforms with a. Perhaps orange round patch on these uniforms that these humans in uniform seem to be working independent of you. And Toby and this other group of humans in the stooges ship, they didn't that seem to be hybrid. They just state media impression human beings. Why would human beings from earth be working in a capacity that looks on us military like inside of a huge triangle that at devil's den. In Arkansas you and Toby have been picked up by a beam. You know, I asked that question every day in huge questions. I can draw the assumption that human beings for working in concert with cvt the little guys, I called them worker bees. And the little guys live Ray ashen grey. But there was a taller being about six two tall who was not gray. Was kind of a pink within an ashen color to it. But this had larger than average is black. For uniform with a v neck, whatever this thing was was clearly in charge carried itself with an air of story. I never saw communicate with anybody. But my gut told me this was the guy that was running the show. How tall was this being in charge? Little six foot tall over six feet. I can't move my head, but I can move my eyes. And I could see that there was motion, and I live with my eyes as far left as I could. And at that, same instance, this guy must have turned to his right? The being raised its hand it raised his hand from down below its waist up about chest high. That's the only way that I knew that there were four long fingers because what it turned. And we blocked is moved as our across. It's upper torso. And that's what I saw the four long fingers. And I think it was by accident we locked eyes in that millisecond. We established..
