"Thank you. Vocal again is called homeland elegies a novel by add Akhtar He is, of course, the Pulitzer Prize winning playwright of disgraced. He also wrote the play junk and the novel American Dervish. Mark Lisi joins US now from Montclair New Jersey. He is the national editor of The New York Times and this week he reviews books for US cry Havoc Charlottesville and democracy under siege by Michael Signature and the violence inside us a brief history of an ongoing. American tragedy by Chris, Murphy Mark. Thanks for being here. Good to be with you. I'm going to start with a basic non book question and that is one that I know the answer to but it took me a while to figure it out. What is the National Desk? So the national desk basically covers everything outside of the New York, City area and everything within the United States and so we cover all manner of stories from light features to vary dire serious news stories and we have people scattered all over the country and they're in every big city they're in smaller towns and basically no day is the same because the country changes. Every day every week, and it's an exciting a desk to be on. So it's basically the entire country minus the metropolitan area, which is kind of New York New Jersey Connecticut minus a little bit Washington DC right and minus politics right? We cover Washington as a city, and then the Washington bureau covers. The federal government politics is a desk that starts up every four years to cover the presidential election. So we're basically covering the big issues of the country we're covering today. For instance, we have people in the middle of the wild fires all across the West, where at the protests every night. So some of it is geographical and some of it is traveling the country trying to explain the issues that really animate the country. So this sounds very simple and easy. How has quarantine made things more difficult. Well Quarantine for our reporters often they work out of their homes. So not much of a change as far as their work set-up it's been tougher for them to get around, and then for the editors who try to coordinate things in New York, we're now scattered all over the country. Some of my editors are on the West Coast right now I don't even know where some of them are, but we are constantly as I'm sure you are were constantly in Google hangouts and we're constantly on slack and trying to keep track of the flood of news electronically..

"Composed. All Right Patty. Back to your point. Okay. So to finish my point I was my theory was always that. That the wealthy like even like the super wealthy like Warren Buffett and Jeff, Zucker, Berg, and bill. Gates. Those guys, if they return. So politically liberal because it was a sensitive. Sense of guilt if I had so much and that others had so little. But when you were when you were talking about the the police strike during that Mohammed Ali. Fight years ago and how the wealthy suddenly had to come face to face with the realities of what you know. The police were doing the quiet security that they took for granted. When that got stripped away they got very nervous and fearful, and you know a few weeks ago in front of Jeff as mansion in Washington DC some protesters bill to be a team, and so as I was riding, riding through Houston yesterday and seeing Lizzy pineal Fletcher signs. I was laughing I. think There's this fear that you're not seeing someone who supports liberal causes at the pros and peasants are gonNA show up in your front yard and start building a guillotine I think. I think it's less a matter of light conscience in more. A Matter of fear with this election honestly could be wrong. No. I will just share my own personal perspective in my own personal experience. So this is separate and aside from. Sort of. My philosophy button. Really Rich, white, liberals or really well educated. Or should I say highly educated white liberals? So I make this separation because. When I lived in West, you in the late nineties. There were people who lived in West you. It's changed because the houses cost so much more today but back, then you would have university professors and academics. WHO had PhD's? They weren't rich, but they had gone to Princeton had a very uppity field. But let me focus on them and especially very rich white liberals. These are to start with. The, most racist people you'll ever meet. In Your Life. And I do not say this to shock or provoke I. Say this out of one hundred percent certainty. And I will tell you I have seen it with my own eyes. When my boys came home. There were rich white liberals who would give me advice on dealing with blacks like you were talking about zoo animals that you didn't WanNa get loose in your house. I am not exaggerating. It was as F-. Blacks. And this is how they feel about working class white people by the way. It was as if blacks are to be kept under foot. That they have to be controlled. and. If you listen carefully, you will see that come dripping out of their mouths when they talk about politics but most people aren't watching closely enough. To, hear exactly what they're saying because they are. These are the people who have a level of disdain for. Black Conservatives. That is so overwhelmingly powerful. It's palpable in what they said. You Watch and see. But. You're right. It's not guilt. It's not guilt over the money they have. It's fear. These are people who are so fearful. That the social order is going to break down and that everything that separates them from you will be removed they live in absolute horror. If you, go to their cabinets. And you look at the prescriptions that help them get through every day. You think to yourself how are you not happy You've got houses in Colorado California. Private jets and enough money that your grandkids won't ever have to work. Why are you so miserable in your marriage in your relationship with your children in your relationship with your parents? and. Why are you so angry at everybody else out there. Because they are so petrified Amin horrified. It is nightmares aplenty. Over the fact that everything that gives them meaning in life can be gone tomorrow. You look at the collapse in Cuba Venezuela look at what the I mean did when he drove the Indians out overnight. Because he didn't want browns in a black nation and how fast they lost everything, and then of course, you fell into collapse. These people understand that what separates them from you? Is In an account with digits on it, and that could change tomorrow. These people understand there are more of us than there are of them. And that frightens them that at some point people are going to understand. So the idea is you're in a hostile crowd of people. So you go overboard to be nice to the savages. And that's how they view the blacks that they turn against the working class whites, and that's their hatred of the working class white by the way despite the racism is worse than their hatred of blacks and they don't want working class whites to enter into their social ranks that would.

"Pretty quickly after that all sports shutdown and for while. Streams of fortnight or televise marble races on Youtube were the only live entertainment in town. Since then things I've ever so slowly been coming back to normal. Some leagues like the NBA. Put all their teams in a bubble in one city while others like baseball and golf have just been taking place without fans. But now, the biggest pro sports league in the US. The National Football League is back to and it's ready to take over your Sundays, Mondays Thursdays and Saturdays. For some of us, the return of live sports is a relief but with Kobe nineteen cases still increasing at least twenty four states we wondered if getting back to normal was really the right message to be sending. I would say doesn't send the wrong message. That's Nicole Fisher. She runs a health and human rights firm in Washington DC and made a name for herself in the sports world by hosting brain science conferences in the super bowl host city each year to talk about issues like concussions. But to be clear, she's not a hater. The I'm a huge fan of sport. In fact, it's I would argue why I care so deeply about making it safe. At the NFL kickoff game last week in Kansas City more than fifteen thousand fans attended in person. But pods of people were spaced out and everyone had to wear masks. One head coach, even more plastic face shield that kept bogging up. At last night's game in Cleveland, the stands were ten percent full and in Buffalo Indianapolis and Dallas fans might get led in this week too. But people aren't being crammed into stadiums like sardines and between mostly empty stands or political protest by players. It's easy to see reminders that this ain't normal. Visually, we're seeing whether it's social justice movements, things written on jerseys or it's the mask wearing. What we're seeing is up pivot that is normal but not normal and it showing you the you know the power that athletes have as much greater than just sport in their sending a.

"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries. I'm your host Kit crumb today the mystery of the Bonus Army July twenty eighth nineteen thirty two will mark the eighth anniversary of one of the most controversial protests in US history and yet it remains virtually unknown to most Americans. On, that day nineteen, thirty, two, five, hundred, US army infantrymen loaded rifles, fixed bayonets, gas grenades containing of vomited ingredient two, hundred cavalry, a machine gun squadron eight, hundred police and six M One, nine, thousand, nine, hundred seventeen army tanks prepared to attack seventeen hundred unarmed men plus thousands of their wives and children moments before the Assault General Douglas Smith Garth in charge of the operation turned. To police officers standing next to him and said, I will break the back of the enemy. The attack was ordered by President Herbert Hoover and commanded by General Macarthur Dwight D Eisenhower was MacArthur's aide and Major. General George. S, Patton led the tank unit after donning gas masks the tossed hundreds of tear-gas grenades into the encampment which started raging fires and the assault drove all but the. Occupants of the area in Kampman was then burned to the ground. This wasn't Cuba the Philippines or the Mexican border. But in Washington DC The camp nicknamed Hoover Ville occupied by World War One veterans who were living in tents and shanties across the country and they're also in their encampment in DC with crumbling buildings all around them along Pennsylvania Avenue near the capital if your education was anything like mine, there wasn't any mention of this event. In history class four, million vets had returned from the war. This is World War One was the war to end all wars and found that others had taken their jobs that are considerably higher wage than though one dollar per day soldiers pay an expected more help from the government in nineteen twenty four Congress promised World War One veterans a bonus payment. I'll dollar twenty five for each day of overseas service and a dollar for every day of. Home Service there would be a limit of six hundred, twenty five dollars for overseas service and five hundred for Home Service but the catch twenty two was that it could not be redeemed until nineteen forty five cash quickly dubbed at the tombstone bonus because many of them would be dead before collecting with the Great Depression deepening demands for making an immediate payment we're escalating finally bill was passed, but President Hoover vetoed it in response some three hundred. Veterans led by Ex Sergeant Walter waters boarded a freight train in Portland Oregon in early May nineteen, thirty, two and headed. For Washington DC. Soon, others began their pilgrimage the cat to the capital from across the country and dilapidated buses overcrowded pickup trucks by walking hitch-hiking the vets and their families were in desperate financial shape with overdue bills to pay hunger affections hanging over their heads. They demanded immediate payment of the bonus soon, known as a bonus. Between Seventeen Thousand and twenty five thousand trekkers began arriving on May twenty third nineteen, thirty, two, assuming their demands wouldn't be met anytime soon, they proceeded to set up a long-term presence in order fashion they mapped out streets named for states, Setup Library and post office, a barber shop and a military type sanitation approach appointed MP's to keep order publish their own cap newspaper and even organized evening.

There was only one absentee in the Cap James Crowe get it Jim Crow. The entire massive undertaking was one in which blacks applied shared everything. Together, during world, War One, the military was still segregated as was Anacostia Park when the marchers arrived the vets who had fought a war together deliberately decided to live side by side and set up in the black section of the park. This fact alone may have led some people to fear the movement General Macarthur's most trusted subordinate Brigadier General. George Van Horn Moseley portrayed black and white veterans living together. As proof that Negroes Jewish communist were planning a revolution in truth radicals and Communists were dismissed by the veterans and were never serious element in the movement. The veterans those were still alive didn't receive their bonuses until nineteen, forty five keep in mind that many. World War One vets had died by then and families were not eligible for the bonus. The ravages of the Great Depression continued until World War Two. Today.

Netanyahu and UAE, Bahrain foreign ministers ink peace deal in White House ceremony

"Prime. Minister Benjamin. Netanyahu is set to sewing agreements with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain in an official ceremony. The White House today establishing full relations between Israel and the two Gulf states the in Bahrain will be the third and fourth Arab states to normalize ties with Israel following peace treaty signed with Egypt in Nineteen, seventy, nine and Jordan in one, thousand, nine, hundred, four as captain. That some journalist for Herat's joins us on the line now for more alison good afternoon to you. Thanks for being with us a a momentous day. I guess potentially Tell us what the story is though behind this story if you like for the Gulf States is this about? Is this about trade? Do we know more about what the sort of strategic alliance is really going to look like? Well, the clear motivation for these Gulf states in taking their relationship with Israel out of the closet because people who live in Israel and especially in the business community here know that there have been you know practical economic ties between the Gulf states you a and and buffering literally for for decades. So this is more of a public declaration than it is some sort of new development or arrangement, but the primary. Motivator everyone knows is the common interests that Israel and the Gulf states have in encountering the UH, the aggression, the the posturing of Iran. The the enemy of my enemy is my friend dynamic and and the Gulf states with the strong encouragement of the trump administration and the white. House have convinced the states to move beyond the position that the Palestinian issue is is more important than their common strategic interests with Israel. Well, that was going to be my next question, which is, where does this leave? Iran did you think to a degree to Horon has been somewhat wrong-footed by this How'd you think? No be be responding what are we hearing? Well. They can't have completely expected it. We haven't heard a lot of loud noises out of Iran strategically. The United States is trying to engineer and what Israel is also hoping is to line up enough of the Arab world on the side of a reconciliation conciliation with Israel as to leave Iran relatively isolated and Iran so goes the proposition won't be able to survive as a completely isolated player in the in the Arab world. So we haven't heard a lot out of Iran except for the general denunciations but we'll probably be hearing a lot once this the. Ceremony is done and you know reminder there's no details yet of the content of what this declaration is going to be at the White House today on both sides it's been hush hush. So we have absolutely no idea what is going to be said, what is going to be declared so you know on both sides on the left and on the right on the Israeli right in the Arab world, we may be in for considerable amount of reaction and criticism. Once we actually know what's inside. You mentioned Palestinians just briefly earlier and it's been interesting to see this been this fairly established long standing consensus I suppose on the Arab side that you know you you couldn't have normalized relations with Israel that was viewed by many as as something of a prerequisite for for for Palestinian independence I don't if you necessarily go along with that reading but. Palestinians feel well, certainly aggrieved you. We read the word betrayal in some in some statements. Do you think that's the correct way to look at the the Palestinian position? That's definitely the way that to look at the Palestinian position. They feel betrayed by their their brothers in the Arab world. But remember you know this isn't exactly new. They have much closer neighbors and connections with the the countries of Jordan and Egypt choose the WHO's peace accords who's state of non hostility with Israel is also longstanding. So this isn't unique in the Arab world to to prioritize making peace with Israel in and turning towards the West as. A way of of of improving their economic in their domestic concerns and you know more and more I think these countries especially in some of these you know autocracies in the Gulf states they look internally and they look at their own stability and they say, you know we have to protect ourselves. We have to worry about ourselves more than we We worry about the Palestinian people vote is definitely a blow to the Palestinian cause. The Israelis and the Americans are hoping that this will. Soften the Palestinians and make them more amenable to to compromise in in potential negotiations with Israel. From the Israeli side. Then tell us a bit about some of the conversations. Your your having clearly is something that was expedient from a business point of view. It's expedient strategically as you mentioned because of the the the shad threat or the two that Iran poses what about this broader feeling that maybe it's a really meaningful step in the direction of ending this sort of slightly isolated regional picture for for for for for Israeli that too much to hope for. Oh I. Think it's huge in the eyes of the the average Israeli the coming to some sort of a normalization of a status with countries like the U. A. N. and Bahrain Israelis for years have been looking at V with envy at European who can fly in and out of places. Like Dubai, it's going to be huge as a tourist destination for for Israelis you know they feel very kind of trapped in a in a hostile region, and so the more countries here that that open up to them open up to them the better you know it's It's an irony and I'm sure a disappointment for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the fact that what will certainly be viewed as greatest diplomatic achievement. In, his more than a decade of being prime minister as far as these other people are concerned are overshadowed by what they feel is the failure and is handling of the coronavirus crisis and the very few Israelis there on a celebratory mood as they look at the what's going on in Washington, DC as they prepare to be the first Western country to go into a second full lockdown as a result of their soaring corona virus. Rate. I have I have to ask you about the Alison as you mentioned, the first country in the world to impose a second national lockdown to begin what by the end of this week? What is the mood? Is it about I wonder people are some people sanguine about the fact that this is a huge unprecedented challenge and so people having to make decisions on the on the WHO for is there a feeling? They want answers from government still why it's at the moment only then. People are very unhappy and very discontent. In the particularly because it's been such a roller coaster ride Israel really now the first lockdown got the infection rate down very low and they were a complete failure when it came to the reopening process political interests financial interests pushed, and pressured Netanyahu to re open economically open the schools reopened synagogues. And allowing large gatherings much much too quickly, and it got the virus you know from a very manageable rate to rate in which things were were out of control and so There was an an attempt to do sort of localized lockdowns that the so-called red cities would be shut down and not do this to the entire country but it got very politicized in certain cities felt that they were being targeted certain populations that they were being discriminated against that it wasn't going by the. Strictly. By the numbers, they saw it as discrimination against ultra-orthodox cities or Arab cities which were headed to the the centers of infection. It became a whole political argument and discussion nothing effective happened, and basically the government decided that because of our situation nothing except the complete national measure national lockdown would would be affected in significantly lowering the infection rate here. Alison. Fascinating. Religiously to hear from you today, that was a good friend, Alison Captain Summer there joining us here on the briefing.

"They said vehicles on fire after news broke of an officer involved shooting. Earlier in the day, Chicago police blamed the writing misinformation spread regarding the shooting. They say police responded to reports of a man with a gun and were met with gunfire as they approached him, officers returned fire and struck the victim who was taken to the hospital in an unknown condition of the police. Department says, this is an example of police reacting to rumors without having the full storied. Wow. Also, violence in DC over the weekend, a deadly shooting is under investigation. They're as hundreds of people gathered for a cookout near Fort Circle. Park, when several people began shooting into the crowd police say one teenager was killed. This is so sad and twenty others were ended when gunfire gunfire erupted. Why is there a hundred people cooking out? Exactly? Exactly. Exactly. They had a don't make as many. People are knowing. and. Yeah I agree I. Agree. We will don't make no sense is to shooting right? Exactly. That is the part that really don't make no this. People began shooting into the crowd. DISA- crowd of people. So you open fire, I mean. This is the real problem. Yeah. Yeah. You know man and like cow. IDIOM SARK. Part about doing stories like this. For people like us is. We do the story and we don't have a solution to it. because. You're right. It's more than just policing. That's the issue in these cities. Of course, it is. Yeah. Jobs lack. That's the lack real deal is lack of opportunity the hopelessness fostered. Because it could dishes are so deprived. These so many young people have no. Hope of participating in the. American dream. and. And it's understood that wait the reason you have zoning the reason you have certain ZIP codes, they get red line and things like that because they can get you in his area. They can control what you buy where you shop and how you live and if they can keep you in the oppress sector. Now. Here's the upside to this. There are many people all of us come from. That are many success stories coming out of the hood. Of people who overcome in do really really well every day but. That fears of that, right. But there is a number that creates these stories that the media sensationalizes and blows up and becomes the headline. And there are no stories about the young people overcome who win who get out, who go to school, who ended up with great jobs who have careers at at at post office on us, auto plant or home depot, or anything like that, and then it becomes a trifling shame, and then until we changed the way taxpayer dollars dispersed at the state level. Instead of going to communities who pay the most taxes where these communities can never come up into change. The way state funds are allocated. It will forever keep the less fortunate less fortunate. And part of that involves the filling out the census people who haven't filled out the census census. People are coming to your homes now and they'll have their masks on, but please fill out your census report. So you can get some of these things that Steve is talking. Yeah. It really is, and of course, vote. Don't be so hopeless that you don't vote I. Mean. That's what happens a Lotta. TIMES, because people don't vote.

"Hi. This is Greg from Pennsylvania. It makes no sense to add another tiny state Washington DC isn't even a big city, if anything make it part of Maryland, or Virginia not a state of its own. Thanks Greg Congresswoman. You hear this a lot. How do you respond to it? Actually? I don't hear it a lot and the reason i. don't hear it. A lot is because there are two states that are smaller or would be smaller if the district became a state Vermont in Wyoming, right? We've never looked to see what your size was to see whether or not, you should be admitted to the union people that need to focus on what DC would and It is a very thriving city. We have so many people We have no place to go, and indeed you know you can't build above a certain. level in DC, which makes it expensive to live here? talking about being able to support ourselves that of course means that the district must tax people because it can make up for by expanding, so the district recognize then still people come. Because it is a place to live that people find desirable. One listener texted taxation without representation was a major reason for the revolution and founding of this country. It's asinine that DC doesn't have representation in the legislature David. What would DC actually. Look like as a state. What some of the features be! Well I mean to begin to be quite unique as a state. You'll be only state without local governments internal to it. It would be. It's just the city again. This would be a small, not the smallest as the congresswoman note. But it would be a quite a small state on. The, the one of the big things that would be attractive about statehood I think is that it would give. Greater capacity to. Engage in kind of remove the limitations created by the Home Rule Act. That were quite odd and bad, and the country mentioned one of them which is the enshrinement of the height of Buildings Act which stops DC from. Removed from DC the ability to approve taller buildings, and as a result office space in DC is extraordinarily expensive and residents are extraordinarily expensive because. Full rights to allow construction further statehood would give DC the power to tax out of St residents who work in the city, and this has always been one of the major opposition. Politicians from Maryland and Virginia have had to DC statehood on the. That power would be granted. DC would also lose some things though DC got a bunch of special benefits in a particularly in the nineties during it's part of the bill out of city government that on the would, and so DC would get and lose from statehood as kind of as a governing in today. And we are almost out of time, but congressman and I want to read this tweet to you and give you just about thirty seconds or so respond. They said please ask about the way. The feds hold the DC budget hostage year after year forcing DC to issue bonds to cover its own money. I would appreciate you expanding on this economic interrelation. What the what she's referring to is that our budget raised here entirely in the district of Columbia has to be signed off by the Congress of the United States absurd, because they don't put a dime. In that budget, and this is the kind of nominally that we've been trying to get rid of through. Through just getting full home home rule so the the the they're probably benefits, the country to mention to the district If we were to be a state, it is important for me to say one important thing, and that is one of your listeners talked about Maryland and Virginia and that they could be taxed. Please note that all four senators. From our two adjoining states, Maryland and Virginia our sponsors of the DC statehood bill. They know they could pay face some possible taxation that is always negotiated with the with the entity involved. A minute to go David. You think that proponents of statehood have been far too focused on Congress so tell us what should they be focused on instead if the actually want to make this happen? These should be focused on making DC as estate work, and I think that this would require a state constitution that was designed to solve the particular problems of DC is a state, and so I think they need to include in their state that were they ought to considering concluding in their state constitution rules governing kind of a mandatory contributions to a rainy day fund that are stricter than most places given the this the the new state's capacity for kind of booms and busts, and they should focus on or the consider adding to their electoral rules. Things designed to create internal electoral competition so that. Local officials face kind of partisan competition inside the city is not come from national political parties, but from some degree that would create some degree of Internal Competition David. Schleicher is.

"Into new voices to the conversation on DC. Statehood Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton is DC's representative congresswoman welcome. Thank you with you and David Schleicher is professor of law at Yale. University, and author of the essay welcomed a new Columbia, the fiscal economic and political consequences of statehood for DC David Welcome. Thank you so much for having congresswoman. Your position as DC's representative is interesting, given DC status. What do you do as representative and tell us what power? If you can't vote in Congress well. It's interesting that actually I have every other single power. Except that final vote on the House floor and let me tell you what that means. I can share a subcommittee I do share one neck and share full committee I vote in committee. do everything that every representative ties, but when it comes time to cast that final vote, including boats that affect only the district of Columbia every member of the House of Representatives can vote except the member who has been elected by the residents of the District of Columbia. So, what does it feel like to never be able to vote on final passage for one of your bills? Well, frankly I've never felt disempowered and the Congress because I walked in the door, saying. Saying I'M GONNA? I'm going to act like every other member of Congress and demand to be treated like every other member of Congress I have it? It's not me. The problem is with the people I represent I. Get all the respect I need in Congress, but they get no respect when that final vote comes, and everybody can cast a vote except the member who represents them now DC. Statehood has been central to your platform for decades. Can you tell us what's important to you? It's important to me and personally and as a member personally because I'm a third generation Washingtonian. My great grandfather was a runaway slave. He got here to freedom, but Nobody in the homes family has made it to equality. Far beyond that, though it's important to me because I represent. Americans who pay the highest federal taxes per capita? And have no vote in the House of Representatives. that's an amazing notion when you think about it, because highest per capita means more than in the largest states and the richest states like New York in California, and did we pay more federal taxes. than twenty two states. That's what we contribute to the United States of America without having. A vote If you look at the district and people will say well, you know that's just a city well as larger than two states. my Wyoming and Vermont. And and they say well the. Certainly, it's not. It's not in fiscal terms equal. Where we have a budget of almost sixteen billion, that's larger than the budget of fourteen states. And, if you WANNA look at whether or not, we are ready to be a state as I. We have been since the nation was created, but Some dollars and cents for you. TRUMP AAA bond rating. Is better than that of thirty five states. Cool can count themselves well. Let's bring. Let's bring in David Schleicher professor of law at Yale University David. What do you think are the potential problems with DC statehood? Show the case for DC state, who always been very focused on Congress and the effect of the statehood will have and providing representation in Congress, but for residents, the biggest effect would not be in having representation in Congress, but rather in changing the form of their own government. Deceased estate would be quite unique. It'd be the only state that is entirely in one metropolitan area, and it would even beyond that just be the city and not have control over tone, suburbs or any of its suburbs. This would be unique among the state. This is a pretty big affects on it. It is a fiscal entity taxing and spending its economy and on its politics. I think is good idea. All things told that proponents need to think really hard about how to sheep independent. Shaped. Sheep Steve Hood in order to address these problems. What do you say to that congresswoman? I've heard of augments against statehood, but I'M GONNA say. To the professor, that's unique. It is true. That this would be a unique state. it wouldn't be like every other state. It wouldn't have what he calls a metropolitan area or suburbs. But that has nothing to do with statehood. Statehood ought to be about whether in every single respect. With respect to the other states. You are entitled to statehood. Now if you if you WANNA look and and and see. About about suburbs, we have suburbs here. And they in fact. vote or treating in many ways as a metropolitan area. That's what would happen if we became a state. So this the if we get hung up on something as trivial as a state has to look like this has to have these things than we have lost sight of the constitution and of the latitude that the framers gave us to form states. We got this voice mail from a listener about why they think DC shouldn't be a state. Here's Bob from Lancaster. Washington DC an obvious, they call ours. The constitution forbids. The desired, have Washington. DC is a state. It's just a powered. By Democrat. Thank you both for leaving us that voicemail. David as Bob Right would making DC state the unconstitutional. No. Alice from conservatives like Viet Dinh to the ACS liberal like liberal organizational. You, have gone through the tissue extensively and the legal argument against statehood are silly on the. There'd be a small problem created by the fact that the twenty-third amendment allocates electoral votes to. Strict and the district would then be shrunk to a very small area by statehood, which would leave three electoral votes in the hands of a very small number of people, but other than that the arguments about that Maryland need sign off because the land was given to from Maryland to to create the district. People think have very little merit on, and so there's no real constitutional problem. The question is about advisability much more than it is about the law. David your response to an email here. From Stephen DC the state would be the only fully urban jurisdiction Congress residents of cities around the country, even mid size and small cities would gain new ally in expressing their concerns on a wide range of issues. This will be especially valuable for urban residents of Republican. States like Louisville Kentucky Tulsa Oklahoma Phoenix Arizona, Houston, Texas and so on. So I think. It'd be very salutary for Congress. The big question I have and I think there's only could be dealt with Steve Constitution is. The fact that would be A. Uniquely shock prone as state, and it would not have the federal government standing behind it the way that it did you win defaced its fiscal crisis in the Mid Ninety S. The city the would if there was a decline in demand for urban property or the federal government shrunk by a certain percentage, just because of politics, or whatever you could see a really major fiscal shock to a city that couldn't balance against having control having being able to tax the suburbs. Or couldn't balance again. Another metro city in it state and so i. think that those are the questions of downtown. Four to the effect Congress would be quite good on that. It is in fact, the case that the US Senate particularly is biased towards rural areas the house to some degree. and that statehood would would help push against that. Congresswoman. You heard the voicemail that we played a moment ago from Bob. He said that DC statehood is a power grab by Democrats. What's your response to that? I think that that's the fear. And I can understand that fear, because most big cities are democratic, and that that indeed has is what is on the mind of a Republicans and then the country has to ask itself. is admission to the union dependent upon. the. Politics of those who seek admission, and if your answer is yes, then you don't. You. Don't want any state admitted until you do a poll and see how they would vote, so we recognize that that is a challenge to us. We're prepared to meet that challenge I met me. Give you an example of how we're going to meet it. we look at the election coming up where you see. The president opposes statehood in the Senate opposed to statehood, and then we look at what the polls are showing recognizing fully that polls can change. But. They are so overwhelming. That? We are heartened by the fact. That It looks like Democrats take the Senate. And, it almost surely looks like we will have a new president of the United States so those who look at a moment in time to try to figure what will happen with a specific bill need.

"To bring you the news you need to know. As protests over the death of George, Floyd and the unequal treatment of black Americans continues in cities across America. The response in Washington DC has been starkly different. Much of that is because the nation's capital home to the White House in the seat of US federal government is a district and subject to different jurisdiction than a state. Washington. DC has a mayor and a member of Congress, but it's representation looks more like a U. S. territory. So when president trump on Monday called for governors to dominate protesters, he was uniquely situated to deploy military units in Washington DC. Since then at least five thousand eight hundred troops, agents and officers have taken to the streets of the district. Humvees rumbled down DC streets. A UH LAKOTA helicopter flew low over protesters. More and more fencing has gone up around the White House making the Executive Mansion. Look more like a fortress. The police force on the ground includes the national, Guard Secret Service Park Police FBI DA, US marshals bureau of Prisons Customs and Border Protection, ice and more. These are not exactly beat. Cops used patrolling the streets. On Thursday Washington DC, Mayor Murray thousand had. She requested that President Trump, remove all federal law enforcement and military presence from the city. She argued that the units are inflaming and adding to the grievances of people protesting. Amid the ongoing battle over the streets of Washington DC bowser shared a new image on Friday morning. Overnight local artists and city officials began painting black lives matter in massive yellow letters on Sixteenth Street right near the White House. Let's get to the point..

And in fact, the book a book one of the books written about her is called the common scold. All right. We're getting towards the end year. But why is this important because this is during the second grade awakening so religious men thought the route into more filling the pews up with more people was going to be through the women. So convinced the women that everybody in the family needed to be religious. And you keep the churches filled.

Hi slate plus interest in what you think happens next with the survived the challenges, and if I be in Helbig and hobby lobby I mean, what's next after the DOJ opinion. Right. Well, so we should make clear the Justice department can withdraw from the suit and other folk can defend the suit. So it's not as if that means that oughta Mattingly, this judge's ruling becomes the final word there will be appeals. And when the stugotz made his ruling law professors across the political spectrum denounced it as like crazy. It just didn't seem like it was tethered in any way to all the rules about when you sever provisions and when you strike an entire law down. So I don't think that really will be upheld. But as we know. You know, other challenges to the Fourtou Care Act that seemed way out there round up with you know, three or four votes on the supreme court. So I, you know, we'll have to watch and see and already a couple of the justices. I think it's a Lido and Thomas have expressed some sympathy for this view, so not gonna get zero votes. Drew Clark on my questions for Emily. You talked a lot about prosecutorial discretion and how that's kind of ballooned with the limiting of judge's discretion. But it seems to me there's there's one or at least or even to more fundamental issues in one is just how we get rid of these three strikes, and you're out types of laws are those mostly federal or state. How do we address that? And also could you just address the role of drug laws, and how crazy they've gotten and should should congress be more focused on scaling back penalties for marijuana and other minor crime uses overt or the three strikes laws or? Or or these prosecutorial things that you focused on most of the three strikes laws that remained. In fact, our state laws on some of them have been reformed or even struck down California and a ballot initiative pulled back on its three strikes law in general, I think one answer to how do we ratchet down from these harsh sentencing laws just a preview to hear the rest?

"You can tweet them to us at at sleet, gabfest, something that you were going to be chattering about your cocktail party and from darla cash, Ian at at bossy Magoo. Darlas sent this dismal story about Matt Bevin who's the governor of Kentucky, and he doesn't believe in the chicken pox vaccine. So he takes his took his nine kids to a chicken pox party. Instead and got them chicken pox that way, and he's sort of hearkening back to certainly my childhood. I think I think I should ask my parents. I think that we the exposed me to chicken pox because it was in the pre vaccine era, and it's that's old timey. It's nice like to do it all time anyway, but as everyone knows the CDC advises against this. And it's there are some deaths from chickenpox and older at serious you can turn into shingles. And also kids who get it kids can get it and die or have serious illnesses. And and so I think fortunately, none nothing untoward happened to Matt Bevin Matt Bevins' children. But it's not a wise thing to do. And it's very disappointing that you have this anti vaccine behavior from a governor. My chatter is about Endel Endel was signed latest artists signed to a big distribution deal. By Warner Music twenty albums coming in the coming year. I think we're going to listen to some Endel is Endel the hip hop star. From Delaware is end all the latest. Swedish DJ is Endel a Scottish boy band. No Endel is an algorithm that creates ambient mood music based on your, you know, like what the weather is and your heartbeat and has now released a bunch of albums on Spotify and going to release a bunch more of albums on Spotify. And it's frankly terrifying to know that that music is is the latest thing that's going to be conquered by the robots. Let's listen to some Endel. This is called one gentle haze from sleepy foggy morning. I just love that. I didn't feel like replacing all it felt like the music they play when every spaceship arrives for the first time. Well, that's what isn't that. What the robot? Would you the robots like, yeah? That's that's the future, man. But I think we can there's there's already a robot newscaster in China and AI newscaster. And I think we can look forward to the the robot novelists that are going to right? They're going to. I'm sure they're going to be trashy novels written soon. Bye. Bye algorithms not. Hi, Brad narrative nonfiction. I think there's going to there's going to be the book the that's writing a book on prosecutorial reform. Did it? Yeah. They don't they also gonna take that big advance. Anyway. So listen to some Endel on Spotify. If you're in the mood, John what is your chatter? It's the end all Bill. Cooking that up for like minutes. I'll show my cell phone. Okay.

"Health care system? The molar report is something that listen, I think it's really important for our democracy that we see the full text of the report, and we have called for that publicly. We have demanded it, you know, the chairman sent a letter we're hoping to hear back by next week on the second and it's critically important. Right. No one asks to see the bar. Some we want to see the Muller report. And like, let's move on. Right. The president said he's cool with it the let's just do it already. Right. But in terms of effort, my focus is on making sure. That we can't do what we promise which is lower healthcare prices, and I have been focusing on that every day since I've been here it's been two and a half months, and we're we're going to get it done is that the short version of how you make build a bridge between Democrats and Republicans you get those Republicans maybe in the Senate is Lamar Alexander and Susan Collins is the bridge to them lowering healthcare prices because it's not expanding coverage. Maybe you know, here's the thing. I think that folks just need to do their jobs, and like this whole idea that Mitch McConnell is going to unilaterally decide to not take up bills is something that I just you know, I really struggle with that. And he. Senators and he's up in twenty twenty. And so like, you know, those good folks in Kentucky, I think can assess, you know, his productivity along with every other member that they get to vote on so totally but he didn't let he didn't let Alexander Murray come up Collins Nelson. He's not letting come up he may not run again in twenty twenty especially if somebody retires from the court, and he can get another conservative on the court just to make your nightmares worse than roaming, people talk about it, really. Now, I'm just saying people talking about a lot of things. I guess my point is what you would dented the pressure point on him. What if that's removed? I'm just wondering the how do you build the bridge both your Republican colleagues, and then also that public pressure? I think the few things one we have to demand that the Senate act we have to demand it. And I think that a lot of people around the country have you know, sort of kicked back a little bit since the election and said, hey, we did it. We flipped the house. We've done our part, and you know in my community. I've seen a lot of people say, you know, I'm so glad Lawrence there. She shares my values and they go back to their regular lies, right and regular life is important, and I'm going to hold it down here. But we need our backup. And we need folks to continue to be engaged and the agenda can't move forward. If we don't have the folks mobilize to push it along. Let's that's nice. Surprise fan since the nicest. Yeah. Well, there's been so many surprises. I mean, I gotta tell you congress as a wild place. It's like totally a trip you guys. And like, honestly, I am surprised at every stage..

"So what is that like so our community birth speaker of the house, Denny Hastert, the longest serving Republican speaker ever, and then they voted for Brock Obama. And then when Denny Hastert left the congress serving in prison, isn't he well. Yeah. That's true. And. You know, we are a purple community half suburban half rural. The district's eighty percent white. It's two point nine percent black. It is ten percent Latino and the rest is Indian and Pakistani Asian Indian Pakistani, and it's an incredible place. You know, a lot of people didn't think that we had a chance when I decided to run they were like, especially folks at home. This is what I'm talking about. They were like these people in DC seem to think that the fourteenth is gonna flip. Good luck. And we weren't really taken seriously. But I always knew that we deserve better. And we this election was about two things it was about healthcare as the number one issue. And it was about representation did the guy in the seat have our back in Washington. And was he going to show up for us at home, and the answer was no what what do you miss about being a nurse? I bet you a good nurse. Well, thank you. And I am. And obviously, we're seeing patients you're. Day must have just been totally different than it is. So I'm a public health nurse, which means that my practice area our communities and populations one of the things that I was so surprised by in the time that I was running was how similar the skill set is meaning that nursing school. We had to learn how to walk into a patient's room because you only have maybe three or four minutes to be able to establish trust look into their eyes. And let them know that the advice that we're giving is our best professional judgment. And that we are trying to help them recover and get well and live their best lives. Right. And I would do that every day on the campaign trail, right people. Come and they would share their vulnerability is their insecurities, and they will be asking for help. And they hoped their congresswoman or their congressmen would be able to help them, right? Like that is a really almost intimate exchange. When people are that wall normal, and you have to look into their eyes and relate human to human. And I. Appreciate and really enjoy that aspect of this job that I drawn from my experiences at ours. Do so we've talked a lot about the Miller report tonight before you came do you do you think that you and your democratic colleagues should how m- how much of your energy and weight should go towards the investigations at the president and how much should go towards. Eighteen sixty eight and other policy measures. Yeah. So I mean, here's the deal. No one at home asked me about more report. They don't they have not. I mean, that's just like not the topic conversation. I can't go anywhere in the Eleanor fourteenth. And not talk about healthcare. I mean that is what folks want to talk about prescription drug prices are too high premium prices are too high. When are we going to fix our.

"Price more Ford will and it covers an additional nine million people. So no one's paying more than eight and a half percent of their income on healthcare premiums. So not to be Debbie Downer here, but your your freshman democrat at the divided congress. The president will never sign that Bill. What what is it that? What is it that you can realistically accomplish as a legislator? What can what can the house do well in this environment where where it's going to be very difficult to get anything actually into law in actuality, David I just have to push back a little bit because that's near for. Plead this Bill. This Bill is part of a package as the House Democrats are focusing on delivering for the people, which means that this Bill will get marked up this. Mill Bill will get a floor vote that will pass the house by overwhelming margin. And I believe that the Senate will take it up because guess what the senators all know that the American people clearly spoke in November saying that they wanted their healthcare. And that there are really commonsense. Good policy ideas to to improve on the ACA that the Senate would I think welcome the opportunity to get a bipartisan win, welcome it. And then you know, what we get in this grey veto override scenario. And I think on healthcare we'll have the votes. This Bill is clearly an effort to improve upon about Macaire. Right. So what do you think of this broader strategy, which seems to be Nancy Pelosi's strategy? Rather than talk about replacing ObamaCare and our entire private health insurance industry to build on. What's here at a moment? When the presidential candidates running for the democratic field or calling for much more dramatic change with Medicare for all or Medicare for America. These plans that would do far more as opposed to bolstering the exchanges. So let's just level set. We're talking about twenty million people who have coverage thanks to the Affordable Care Act. We're talking about millions of Americans millions who have pre existing conditions who are now able to get healthcare coverage around the country. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act. We're talking about hundreds of millions of Americans who enjoy the benefits of preventive services. Those free screenings the free vaccines contraceptive coverage..

"Yes. So by your domain names, now, actually, there's Lauren Underwood dot com. I don't own it. It's this woman named Sheila who sells hair weaves in Texas, and she won't sell it to me. And then she felt that she told it to some other guy thinks he lives in tant campus. And I wrote him a note. Hi, I'm really Lauren under what I really need this. I really will pay. Let's do some business and no answer. That's the way what's on the page. Now, if we went and visited it Lauren, underwent dot com, park domain. I know right. This is so hook me up, you guys, you all know, how to find me if you know, this guy who owns my domain name. So. Emily. Can you explain what happened this week with the latest court challenged the Affordable Care Act that can do that? So a bunch of Republican attorneys general argued that because congress because there is no longer attacks that the individual mandate is unconstitutional. And then a judge made a surprising ruling that that meant the entire Affordable Care Act had to fall every single bit of it. An unusual really because we have because judges have a principle of reading legislation and thinking about when part of it can be severed from another part. So there's like a whole system for figuring out. If one part of the law for some reason has to be struck down. How do you uphold the rest of it? This judicial ruling was really surprising. And what happened this week was that the Trump administration decided not to challenge that judge's ruling, even though. Oh, if that really goes into effect, the entire Affordable Care Act would fall. So congresswoman Underwood you come to us on a in a week of extraordinary news, but notably news about the Affordable Care Act. And you you're as a politician you've devoted a lot of your attention to healthcare you worked on healthcare and the Obama administration, you are a nurse. What do you make of the Trump administration's decision to try to completely invalidate the Affordable Care Act, and what is congressman do about that? Well, obviously, President Trump can't take a hit the American people spoke and force in November twenty eighteen saying that we want our healthcare. And you know, listen, he has a habit of trying to distract and trying to so confusion. But I think that this goes beyond that. And I hope that the American people are not going to sit by and let them take away our healthcare coverage we saved at once. We can save it again. And what we're doing in congress is that we are acting on day one on day one when we were sworn in. We voted to defend the Affordable Care Act when we had the department of Justice who refused to do. So in an unprecedented move to not defend in existing law on the books. The house is going to do that work, and we are now working to improve on the law. So I'm really excited yesterday. I introduced a Bill HR eighteen sixty eight which will allow more Americans to get access to the tax credits, which make premiums more affordable for those purchasing plans in the marketplace it would allow. Ten million people who currently do not qualify for tax credits because their income is just at that threshold to be eligible for some additional help and making their premium.

"But I think there's no question. I mean, certainly I saw this in Brooklyn that defense attorneys saw openings, and then they were like really taking it to the mat for clients. They felt like something was possible. The kind of offer that wouldn't have been before and they were making making arguments about public safety. So the main tactic that defense lawyers have honestly in this world is delay. Because the longer the case takes the more time everyone is spending on it. And also the more time your client has to prove. Selves, right. It's almost like in that it can last stretch out for a year or two. And if your client is getting a job and cleaning themselves up and doing well, it's much easier to make the argument that they don't need to go to jail. So Emily, just going back to your turnstile jumping examples so much was made in the nineties of the kind of broken windows theory of policing and prosecution, which is that you you want to reduce the level of low level chaos in the city, and that's going to overall make community safer. Does that turn out to be bullshit? Yes. That turns out to be basically bullshit. So the the best proof of what I just said is in New York. So when stop and frisk ended in New York, which was kind of combination of the broken windows approach to policing. You're talking about really nobody thought that crime wouldn't rise. Right. Even the people were like, this is terrible injustice, which it was there were all kinds of racial profiling and disproportionate policing of people of color like bad bad. Even the people who thought that was bad and worth ending thought. Oh, you know, what there's going to be a bump? No crime continued to decline in New York. So I think we have pretty good evidence at this point that when we put policing resources into solving violent crime like that's what brings down. Right. That's that's the most effective use of those resources. Unless David has another substantive question..

"I remember on that weekend. The times maybe I'm conflicting, but the times printed the whole thing in the in the newspaper. I think we will get the report. What does that mean? Does that mean forty-nine percent of the report does it mean? Eighty eight percent of the report, but not the good bits. And what does it mean to be good bits? And then, you know, Wenski report the good bits were really. E. Definition is. Here. I don't know. Think about baseball. So, but but what interests me is the? So we're it seems to me that the president landed somewhere between not exonerated and beyond a reasonable doubt on the obstruction question. Well, if the way that this properly should be handled is in the political realm in impeachment. You know, the standard for president should be something better than not exonerate mean. Not exonerate it. Right. And that's. And that's. And particularly because I've spent the last two months in Philadelphia in seventeen eighty seven. And thank you to our guys. Thank you to the the two whistle-stop listeners out there. But man when you read them all day long. It would be obvious what the response to this would be that the standard. I mean, look at the guy who was sitting at the front of the room, we didn't speak much, but George Washington was the model for the presidency throughout the whole four months. And the reason he was the model is because he had sublimated his self interest twice in big huge public ways. And so comparing that standard to the not exonerated standard is such a vast difference, and they created they literally created impeachment for this kind of thing. Now, they also created a system in which if the people who are closest to the people in the house. You know, can't do it. And with the Senate, then then that's fine. That's what the voters have chosen. But it seems to me, obviously, that's the that's the issue. And who knows if it will ever be brought up David since you reported so much on impeachment in the Clinton era. Do you think as a country we're better off without impeachment proceedings? Given how divided we are given the I suppose relative ambiguity of this obstruction charge as a criminal matter. At least I think we're better off without impeachment proceedings because it's clear for because the country has become so partisan that impeachment could not succeed in removing the president from office and therefore even though. Even though he in my mind is clearly committed high crimes and misdemeanors and his behaved and unethical ways, not necessarily Justin the Russia stuff. But in so many other ways, but I just I'm not sure that it is it is productive because the legislative branch abandoned its duties and legislative branch is not behaving honorably. I mean to me it is like like we have this situation where we have a Russian conspiracy to subvert American election. A very successful one. We had a president who lied at every turn about what his connections with Russia where he covered up business dealings. He had every associated hit as was lying or literally committing crimes around it. So behaved unethically, an immorally if not criminally clearly, and then has engaged in this extraordinary other variety of criminal activity or or unethical activity involving emoluments involving his highly corrupt cabinet. Involving the hiding of his tax returns. And so, of course, he he is should be subject to impeachment. But in political system that doesn't work..

"Not just like I spun this I feel like that would have been too far bridge for him to cross as a lawyer. So then we'll go walking down the speculative wrote a little bit more. Which is then there's probably some stuff in there. That's not up. You know, that's big that that would. Be. Yeah. Superbeets negligible. Right. Because one thing that's interesting in bars letter is he talks about the things that were not publicly known about obstruction. So since much of this played out in public, and we should get to that. What used to be norms after Watergate is Peter Baker wrote today like firing you're getting rid of your attorney general firing. You're up director, those norms are gone, but there's a lot that happened apparently behind that. We don't know about that presume lose in the report. So Emily do. What do you make of this question around obstruction where there's this legal standard that bar has outlined which under which he declares the president is not available to be to be charged with obstruction or accused of obstruction is that a reasonable legal standard that bars outlines they common legal standard is one that people generally agree on that. If you don't have an underlying crime, it's harder to prove obstruction. That makes sense to me harder to prove doesn't mean you can't prevent and prosecutors do sometimes bring -struction charges without clear proof of an underlying can I interrupt for one second one, which is that. There are underlying crimes. There's the Michael Cohen campaign finance crimes their crimes, which aren't necessarily related to know. Those those could be Trump's crimes true. But there Cranston aren't necessarily related to Russia, which Trump might still have been trying to obstruct in order to prevent that investigation from going forward that is a crime. Absolutely. And also you could choose to obstr-. Tuck Justice because you're trying to prevent other embarrassing information from coming out or investigations from happening. Right. I mean this relates to me to this question of we'll y was there all this lying to the FBI? If there was no underlying shenanigans, why did people lie so much? And you know, one reason is that there were other crimes that don't fit into this quite narrow definition of collusion on an actual agreement that Muller used according to bar. So that's one possibility is another as we were trying to prevent other things from getting out that you were worried about, and perhaps you succeeded, and that seems like a reason that you would want to charge obstruction of Justice. You know, we also don't know whether Muller imagined he was throwing all this to congress. Although if that was what he was doing than the fact that congress doesn't have the underlying report in its entirety or at the moment at all seems like a big problem. John, do you think we're going to get the report, do you think the American public is going to see the report? I mean, you you, and I all of us remember probably many of his room. Remember when the Lewinsky report came out that thing was out. I had read that poll thing within fifteen minutes of it being released to the public. And here we could be waiting months to see a very heavily redacted..

"That we also have on our tour here in Washington DC got to see the inside of the capitol building. And that is a wide variety of textures and colors and even down to looking at the rotunda where the different types of stone don't match I was part of the tour to guide was like you may notice that the stone doesn't match because they whitewashed it when they built it. How do you guys? Go about picking out which details are important to make sure you get right in which ones you're like. Well, the players probably just going to run by that hallway real quick. So let's focus on something else. Instead, exactly. That's a good question. Because people think when you recreating city one to one that you just copy everything. But of course, that wouldn't work. And you you really have to be careful and clever about how you style is the environment that you building you need to focus your budget on the things that metamorphosed as you say the the buildings alot here. There's more open sky so apart from a beautiful new cloud system. We're also looking at the silhouettes we create on those low lying buildings putting a lot of detailing there. And then as you say with with beautiful buildings like the capitol the national archives really beautiful buildings in coporate stone, different types of polish stone embedded polished brass embedded Letheren like all these materials that work. So well in in the kind of the lighting system that we have in Snowdrop, it's it's it was a really. Fortunate challenge for us to to try and recreate these these buildings these landmarks sounds like you guys are also limited in some of the things you could manipulate and some of the things you couldn't because I think things are protected here in DC where there any major challenges or do you see them more as creative challenges? You have a different creative challenges. But everything gets a legal poss- did the same in New York. It's not so different. I think from cinematic teams who wanna make a movie so I mean, one of the things that we do is we recreate the brands of DC. So these see itself has you know, it has a logo with the stars and stripes. We had to recreate this recruited the brands for the police security services. Firefighters FEMA CDC all that kind of thing we try and think of those brands from from head to tail so to speak so not not just how they look in a poster or something but from. Micro macro uses throughout the world. Are we trying to think of them properly as as a brand as he would if you making a brand? No that absolutely makes sense. I think is a challenge that sometimes gamers who are just booting up the game to play don't stop to think about the massive amount of work that goes on the other side to brings some of this iconic imagery into a game. And I always find it really fascinating. Hearing about these kind of behind the scene stories that go along to make something like the capitol building in the division to reality. So we one example would be we weren't able to recreate the world we'll to memorial that you see near the Washington Monument when you looking at towards Lincoln Memorial. But we created a different memorial there that has a similar feel and it happens to be an important site for the introduction to the second part of the game. Well, we won't we won't go into details about that. We'll keep it secret. I did want to bring up something that Britney asked Julian about when we were chatting with him having to do with the different neighborhoods, the areas inside of Washington DC that they spoke about in the presentation that we watched earlier and how each of these different districts has a specific purpose..
