Curtis Sliwa Makes His Bid for NYC Mayor

"Courtesy, welcome. Oh, my pleasure to join you again last time. Remember, I was on a city bike outside a prospect park. I don't believe, I don't believe you remember that. You have been so busy running for mayor. Let's frame this, okay? Because most people listen to the program. Don't live in New York, right? So number one, I want to ask you, how do you see this race shaping up? De Blasio was a full out, I mean, he's like a Biden wannabe. He is a total communist. I mean, we're not even joking, right? He's as bad as you can imagine. I've seen the city change in a few years like I never dreamt. It could change. The crime, the graffiti, the street people on the upper west side. I mean, it's an unbelievable deterioration. Number one. Number two, now you are running against Eric Adams, talk about the race as it stands now. Well, all you had to do was listen to Eric Adams on that debate stage last night and towards the end, we were asked by the moderator to give a letter grade to Bill de Blasio. Harry Adams said, B plus and that made my entire point that if the voters in New York City vote for Eric Adams did not Kurdish sleeve, you're gonna get four more years of de Blasio. What drug induced psychosis was Eric Adams in to give him a B plus. That is the ultimate in social promotion. I gave him an F and I said, I can't wait to this guy leaves New York City, goes back to Cambridge. He'll probably be an adjunct professor and ruin a whole new generation of poli sci students at

There's the scripts that i ride. There's the bits that i write that that are funny. And then there's the other ones which there's way more than that that are that are not funny. And then. I've got all the audio files that i've got deal with then all the tweets and all that stuff that i have to put together for each one of these podcasts. Well after several months of working. On it i finally figured out a virtual filing system that worked for me. Let me tell you doing that. It took forever. It's helped me out every single day in the inspiration for that believe it or not was last year's national cleaner virtual desktop day. So there you go This day helped me out last year. Let's make it help you out this year. Clean up your desktop people in in clear. Cash and browsing history. Sometimes it's national chocolate cupcake day. Today is well and well. I've got a world record for you to tell you about. Yeah seventy two cupcakes. Seventy two in six minutes there. You go set in two twenty twelve i. I don't know how you enjoy seventy two cupcakes because really i think a cupcake is about enjoyment. E can't enjoy seventy two cupcakes in six minutes. I mean nearly two hours for that. Come on this happened at the waterloo world cupcake eating championship held by patrick. Berta letty so there you go patrick slow down. You might enjoy them now. When looking up chocolate cupcakes actually stumbled across something different. That i just gotta tell you about. Costco has a new bakery item. Yeah they're now. Stelling snicker doodle mini cakes. They're like cupcakes. Snicker doodle cupcakes. Six of them in a pack. I don't know how much they are but Yeah and i'm not being paid for this else. I got to tell you that. I that i also found out that the heroes coming back to the food court at costco. Yeah that's happening this week. So maybe it's time for trip over to costco. Yeah i'm sure you'll spend four hundred dollars just to get that show. It is international lagging day as well. You can pick some of those up while you're there at costco now. Believe it or not. This is like one of those current trends right. But guess what they're actually like going down in price not going up usually fashion trends. They start to make things go. Well no no. They're actually going down in price and this is also one of those weird things where it costs more for men than women. Yeah men's leggings are six dollars more prepare on average than women's lagging so quite unique thing here but why why so low well because now there's all these different brands they're seventy or so different brands and thousands of styles out there for lagging. So if you're going to look for him. I guess you could do a little price shopping. It is also national exo scale day. I'm sorry xs scale day. I think i said that right This is the day supercomputers xs scale computers and the operators that run those amazing computers can achieve achieve over. I said cheese yeah. I'm sorry i'm thinking about food. Still yeah they can achieve over one. Quinn tilling killian. I'm not pronouncing anything right tonight. One ian operations per second. That's ten to the power of eighteen. See so there you go ten eighteen so you get all make sense however you need a supercomputer to figure it out and apparently a supercomputer to be able to say it. yeah anyway. These computers can do that much calculating in that little time. Meanwhile i can't open a website without my computer fan turning on time for an upgrade okay. National no beard day today and according to those fashions sites you know had to go down there for the leggings. So i looked beards as well and well beards are still in. Fortunately for me. I got a beard. So i'm in might be the only thing i mean for as far as fashion. But yeah the less scruffy and more well groomed. Beard is kinda cool fashion right. Now got scruffy for a little while. They're about the same time the whole man bun thing was happening. I'm glad that went away. I i couldn't do it because bald. But yeah you know that was happening about the same time. As the scruffy beard now well-groomed beards. If you've got one go for it now. The problem with that is. It's no beard day. So if you wanna participate in this day without actually shaving off your beard you can perhaps use one of those tick-tock filters you know that automatically removes beards. This thing was all the rage viral sensation earlier. This year But perhaps you know. I'm thinking maybe zoom should start doing these filters right like instagram's ghanem tik toks cottam and they make you look a little bit different right. Why why not do that on. Zoom like. Make me look not as tired for that. I zoom meaning of the morning. That would be good or or out of food filter. How about that. You know so. You don't like actually see the food that you're eating and people judge you on. Why is he eating so many oreo cookies during this meeting just visually take that away and perhaps the smacking as well so you can't hear it. Oh you know it'd be great now. I'm on a roll here. The dog filter would if there was a dog filter for zoom where you couldn't actually see or hear the dogs in the background because there's always dogs in the background somebody if you've got like ten people in zoom meeting. Somebody's got a dog in the background. It's super distracting. Why maybe i like dogs seeing dogs. Virtually i guess but yeah filter those out. You could do it. Yeah how about pants filter for those that. Stand up they they forgot. Don't have the pants on. Maybe even a distraction filter so you could do just whatever else and your face is just looking at the computer and just nodding no matter what i think. That would be good. All right. we gotta take a look at our events for today. We're going to start today in nineteen sixty one with the premiere of west side story. Yeah not only would was in this classical musical classical. We'll say classic musical anyway. She wasn't the original choice. Hundred hepburn was actually the original choice for the west side story and for the male lead. That was supposed to be elvis. And you know it would have been interesting to have elvis in there. Because maybe they wouldn't have had to dub so many voices. Yeah actually natalie. Wood is not the one you hear. Singing she was dubbed by mamie nixon and many of the other actors were dubbed in this well at the time this became the biggest selling soundtrack album. So maybe it was good. They did a little dubbing to make it all sound better actually one of the singers That was doing. The dubbing was featured on the album and they wanted some credit they wanted some cash they sued so the whole thing settled out of court but that made everybody realize a little bit more. Everything was being dubbed and it wasn't the actual singers another actor in this movie by the way russ tamblyn. That is where. I got my name russ. Yeah from the actor russ tamblyn. My mom liked the name. All right in twenty ten jessica watson that name we yes. She became the youngest person to solo sail around the globe. She took a trip on her all. Pink yacht two hundred ten days sailing around the globe. She held the record. Only though in two until twenty twelve win. Laura dekker who was about two hundred or so days younger completed her trip since then Jessica has received an nba. She's authored two books and she's currently the co founder of the nautical safety app decky aright. You know this made me think we've got these kids doing these amazing things. You know like mozart composed his i simply by what the age of five actually the the niece i saw this the other day of giselle bunchin. Yeah duda is her name. She was like a fashion designer. At the age of five. She made all the decisions about the prince. That cuts the details of the collection. All this stuff and she was also a model. And then you've got a jordan. Romero who climbed mount everest at the age of thirteen. Flynn mcgarry had his own pop up restaurant at the age of thirteen. Louis braille well. He invented the braille system at the age of fifty. All these kids do all these amazing things at fifteen. I could ride my bike pretty quick. Pretty fast fast is on the block even faster with other pesky helmet.

"He really an i let loose and started to scream and yell and cry and attack him. And i remember his putting his arm up to his head or to his face. And you have the wine bottle or something right. i mean it was just. I went crazy screaming. The director very smartly. Let the camera run. He didn't say cut and is still one of people's favourite scenes in that movie because it is so authentic totally and then. When i came back to the hotel we were in france. My husband said how to go. And i said oh man i have tell you what happened and i told him and of course he knew that marlin was my love for ever. Never and i said i'll tell you what would you the food the dailies come in. The dailies means that you see the work that we shot. I'm telling us telling the audience. The dailies means that you will come into a screening room. Nc the that have been shot several days before. So i said to my husband when the daily of the income in would you go and look at it. I'm so concerned about it. And he said sure you sure i said yeah because i told him what happened and the dailies came in he went to see it and he came back to the hotel. This was days later. And i said so. And he said boy you two or such good actors. Well wow what a guy. Yeah why husband. He was both so good. He was less on your side with carnal knowledge though paul he didn't want me to do it right. It's just thought it was a dirty movie and Carnal knowledge was very experimental movie written by jules pfeiffer and in fact it was brilliant movie about how men objectified women and Early mike nichols. Mike nichols all god. It but an amazing film. I've done not many. But i've done some very interesting fails. And that's that's how far one scene you come in and basically steal the movie bloody film should have got nominated all over the place and because of the times we lived in there are people who never even got seed in georgia because georgia supreme court abandoned. And that movie should've gotten at least three nominations. You five one of them. I like oh i can't. I don't think i would stood a chance. I can't believe. And i see it now. And i think yeah. I think that was worth a nomination. Performance got it for two minutes or whatever in network. I mean this is anyway. Let's done is done. Yes and so. Just i wonder as we enter the home stretch if i can just mention a few of the other projects that people associate very closely with you that contributed towards the guide. And all of that. And just just a senator to what first comes to mind when you think about these projects. Let's start with the electric company. Which of course for most people when they think about it. They hear you screaming. You're the electric company I was briefly. I was told by friends who are actors. Don't do a children's show you.

"To the verse of america. Early puerto yes. I had nothing to do with it. People think i went to sondheim. I wouldn't dare. I didn't know him and said where. Dr rica my heart's devotion. Let it sink back in the ocean. I thought that i can do right. It's a part it's not use a nato who's who's saying i don't like puerto rico. I like america right. That's what almost happened. Isn't that crazy again. One of these things were how life would have been. Wow so you can win certain battles and in that case without even having to really fight it but there are others that it seems like at least in because of the time period in which this was happening you. We're not gonna win like the fact that even now when rita it who has puerto rican is being asked to play a puerto rican. They still have to put the mud on the makeup makeup. Well that was really jerome. Robins fault i found out much much later after the movie i've found out that he wanted to contrast so he wanted all the puerto rican kids and the shark shark girls to be darker than the jets. In fact some of the jets had very pale. Makeup this was deliberate and had their hair bleached at his behest. I mean Baby john was not a blonde baby. John had brown hair and they had these awful die jobs. And i remember saying to make up man one day because the makeup was so dark that it would streak on my face and you would see my own color underneath and i remember saying to him. I despise this makeup. Why can't i be my own color. I said i'm puerto rican. And you won't believe his answer he said. What are you racist. That was so shocking. Have an answer. i just clammed up. I could not believe he said that. So the difference. I guess they say between the stage in screen as the camera. There's no faking out. The camera doesn't lie right. If you a little twitch a little anything it will pick up and in your case there to moments one in west side story one later on with when you are now back acting with brando having broken up years later where it was as much rita as the character coming through and so i wonder if we can just talk about so first of all with west side story. This is in the candy shop. Where essentially it's like. I think as much of could be implied raised to call the near rape scene. Yeah because that was what was intended when they lifted. Baby john up to lower him onto me..

"When you are getting more claim than ever people are suddenly giving you the love and attention that you wanted all and respect all those wrong and these two moments are clashing basically. They really are because it happened. I remember that one. They took me to the hospital. My first and only visitor was george shakira's who remains to this day. My great great endear. Dear friend i i love him. He's really special. Will you both have. I want whatever whatever you guys take because you both look decades younger than you are. It's incredible it's true. We both have really pretty good genes. God and he's a lovely guy to lovely man and he's been my friend all of this time. What is it now. Like sixteen years and fun fact for our listeners. I don't believe that there are very many people who went. Essentially as each other's dates to the oscars where both left with an oscar one night that was where side stories swept the oscars. And not until. Gosh what's the movie about the the ship. The full titanic right. I think they either bested us by one or equalled us. I don't remember so it's interesting because sixty years ago versus the what you're going to experience this year with the new side. Sorry is this crazy. Do i have a crazy life. Or it's certainly unlike any other. I guess though let me ask you. We know what your relationship is with west side story going into this one when it was going into the one that was made in nineteen sixty one or releasing sixty one. How major was it in your mind. Had you seen it on broadway. Where i guess it was cheating broadway in fact what happened was when i was done with the when we were finished with the candy. Jerome robins said to me. I'm gonna do a musical on the stage in new york. And he said. I would love to have you audition for the part of maria. Maria what am i know it was just the part of maria and he said. Would you fly in and auditioned for me and i said oh of course i never did and i didn't because i felt a head done way too many films and that i was afraid i couldn't carry.

"What a great movie. That was and i watch it all the time because i love it. It's just brilliant. And i was gonna say for you watching. It must be particularly special because you know we watch gene kelly literally singing singing in the rain and oh that's cool but you were there on the set. I was on the listen. I was on the set of almost every scene in that movie. Because i wasn't scene and there were many i was not in. It was a little part I would come and visit all the time either. Get all made up and dressed as could for daytime and i showed up on the set constantly. And that's one of the scenes that i saw in person and i didn't know then that jean had that was like one hundred really who fever or something and he did that. Whole number with a fever. Would you say that in the moment you realize that this was something very special or did it have to be cut together to kind of no. I know i didn't even think in those terms at the time. I just knew that i was in a movie with gene kelly. And that's all that matters and and then when it turned out to be such a hit i was just thrilled and it was after that. I think it was after that. That i got fired. Yeah it would seem because if that came out and fifty two must have been made fifty one and esther williams film there also. So i'm trying to think of that was the second thing i did. There will another kind of weird fun. Fact is that you have been part of the two probably most famous movies from the golden age that were that had co directors because both singing in the rain and west side story had to directors. And i wonder what interesting vacation. You're absolutely right. That's right gene. Kelly had stanley stanley donen. Who was helping him with ideas. Plus i know this stanley was on the set. All the time with his Finder and they were thinking shots and then later on quite a bit later on. I did the king and i and jerome robbins was directing only the musical chairs and well guess who was there to stanley donen. He kind of is like the zella of the golden age musical. It's amazing that's a wonderful way to right. You bring up the king. And i and that was i think another sort of this. Now you have done in the rain you have you partways with mgm. I'm older you're a little older until entities and now you get the second shot at a movie life at fox and king and another one. That's remembered very fondly but i know that for you not the most sort of felt like a return to the stuff that you had been trying to escape right. The took team is right. Not what you wanted to be playing. Yes exactly exactly. I remember being screen tested for.

I've partnered him and the audience. Of course how can you not be charmed. You know a grown man with long sideburns. Who was very much a spaniard. Data fierce face and this little girl. How can you not be shocked. So of course everyone go probably going but he would have been the well. I guess you say the i. Ren- but i guess between iranian and they're probably the first people to recognize that you really had talent. Yes well she certainly did. And that was my debut. And all i can tell you is that i thought i liked the attention really neat. Absolutely well you mentioned. The rita hayworth was not really named or born rita hayworth and that was i know the case with a with a few of the people who proceeded you in into the movies and i wonder therefore did you have anybody who you look to when you were getting into the movies. Now that you are in america who you said even if it wasn't your your hero or your favorite or your role model but was there somebody who you recognized as you know. Yeah that was elizabeth taylor and there were no mentors for somebody like myself. Then i never even knew the word. And so i made her my role model and she was the girl i wanted to be. And she was the the movie star. I want it to be and that's how that image came into my head. Just oh she was just extraordinarily beautiful. She was a star and she was a star at my favorite favorite Studio mgm which had all the great musicals there were other studios that had musicals but none of them ever matched the power and the energy of mgm musicals because they also had and miller and they had jim kelly for pete's sake and he's gonna come up there again in a minute but i guess for you was the ultimate always the movies. Because it's pretty big broadway a pretty big deal and you were on broadway at thirteen. I think before. Well before the movie. I was thirteen. Yeah i made my debut. And we opened on broadway and we close the very next day and night so the you know lesson number four already right right. I'm only what's thirteen well. And it was those those next few years. I guess really all through the rest of your teens. In hindsight must have felt like a whole rollercoaster because as you talk about in the documentary. There's the thrill of actually having your ambition realized getting to not only join a movie studio but the movie studio that you've just been taught my dreams. Yes but then also at nineteen. That was over. That's when they dropped your contract and a lot of people might have been devastated by that and that might have been. The end of the story was devastated. Dropped my contract is they didn't know what to do with me. And they dropped the options. My contract and i was an absolute shock. Because i honestly believed because i was also very naive. Young girl I was always young for my years with respect to sophistication I thought i was going to be there forever. And then it'll be mayor was going to be kind of surrogate daddy and What i was told that my contract was not being picked up..

And with American society, I think American society in general, I think there is there needs to be more conversation about going to therapy, talking about things that are not very comfortable and what are things that society should be saying. What should we be talking about and should be made more aware? Society. Yeah. You know, you know, we live in a culture where everything is so fast paced and we're so, you know, what are you feeling? You know what I mean? You got to get money. You know what I mean? Next thing, you know what I mean? It's so it's so bad because when we see some of our favorites, you know what I mean fall down and we say, wow, they were so kids saying signs of this early on, but we chose not to see that. You know what I mean? I see that person. And I always say, like you said earlier, we meet people. Everyone's gonna be dealing with something. And I think that in this world, everybody, you need to be kind. Point blank period. You have to leave the kindness and all that. So you know, I know it's a hard thing to do to do in the world, but you need to kind of, you know, you'll be on the right path and all that. And as far as the world of itself, then what conversations that we have the better. What I'm wearing this in front of the audience. Everybody stood up at the end. It just started hunting on one another. Why? Because it's that common thing that we go through as people. You know what I mean? You still be able to really talk about okay, yes, I want to do that challenge a theme. I'm like, how did I overcome that by doing XYZ? You know what I mean? And I didn't think I was like, you know, as a self that's crazy or, you know, like, you know, you're crazy if you ask for help. Everybody needs to help. Yeah, and it's definitely a very important, especially disorder. We're all going through something. So now, but as far as the artist's part, right? You are, we're dealing with our own issues. And then we put on top of that, our creativity. How do you do that? Specifically, this documentary, you said, okay, so I was asking other questions and then he led to something else. That has creativity sparking, right? And you're saying, okay, maybe I have something bigger than I thought. How do you deal with that in the sense because it is at the very difficult theme to talk about with people and you're not sure if they're going to be open to share. So how do you deal with that in your creative approach? Well, it's so interesting that you say that because while I was interviewing them, you know, my grief was still fresh in my own. Correct. So while I was interviewing them, I'm like, geez, I'm still unpacking myself and here I am receiving things from other people. And I'm like, I have to take a couple I have to take about a week or so apart from each interview because I'm like, you know, all I talk about some heavy stuff and then now I gotta edit it while I'm editing my short film and it was like, it was filled with stuff made emotional roller coaster for me, but it was that theme to what I knew single handedly that it was in divine order that I was doing the right thing with this project. You know what I mean? And I think for me, the biggest thing was just like sitting back and knowing that Michael okay. This is bigger than me. You know what I mean? My project is bigger than me. It's documentary is bigger than me. And to be able to teach with it in people to see it and feel something, that's what it is. That's what it's about. Right. And it's not something that you're doing. Do you have to sort of detach yourself from your own feelings or maybe you got more into that in order to be able to finish this documentary? I'm curious, I'm a curious person. So I definitely leaned into myself a little bit more about why does the person feel that way or can we go back, you know, the technology and see what happened to our specific time and all that. Yeah, it's just intuitive and me to just like, you know, lead with my body and the heart. Definitely. And I think that's what we have, right? I left at the end. So creativity is our voices just making stuff that it's important to us and that we want to share. So as far as that, we got to bring back something a little lighter. So you said you were doing your film and the documentary at the same time. A lot of filmmakers out there are season filmmakers but there are others that are starting out like I mentioned. So in that sense, tell us more about the process with that. You're doing two projects at the same time, but one of them came out before. And now you have something that you're working. What is the process as far as the production part of it? About at least what you encounter. Yeah, you know, so I'm very grateful for my short film team because when I sat down with each and every one of them, you know, they, you know, what my vision was, single handedly, you know what I mean? So grateful for that. Now, when I was in the editing room by myself for my documentary, it was just me, I didn't have anyone to turn to our go to look too. So it was kind of like it was kind of like a home therapy session in itself. And, you know, you walk through this project and I know that I've mentioned that, you know, we did with the 5 stages of three, you know, bargaining and like acceptance and the value that depression and all those other ones. And the people were talking, but I didn't set up the questions. Like, okay, let's talk about arguing, you know what I mean? Those things just like naturally just like the conversation. And as I was piecing together, this documentary, I was like, huh. Here we are. Talking about the acceptance of something, or the denial of something. And so, you know, my process was very, you know, blindness on and, you know, just getting very articulate about what it is that we want to share when we talk about green. And as far as your festival run so that you completed those two films, as far as being on the festival and screening your stuff, what was your process? The what you do in anything prior to the pandemic as far as that screening your film places and now how has that differ from what you're doing now with the documentary because it might be a little different, right? Yeah, no, it's definitely different nowadays. So the film now the documentary is precious news. So it's definitely been a submitted to customers right now. So it hasn't had its own chance to shine this yet. But the part is the short film pain that's done like an extraordinary job being out since 2019 and being part of your festival in Chicago filmmakers and stony island arts bank and, you know, I get to teach with it and my students get to see it and watch it and we talk about process making and, you know, real health business it's like each, you know, the mediums that I teach on is just I'm thankful for it. You were talking to us about your also a T-shirt. And you also, you work with these you say middle school or elementary school kids? So I work with court theater and we teach our students on the south side of Chicago and also work with tape, which is, you know, Chicago partners, education team, and we work on a west side of Chicago. Well, with middle school students. And I know this right now we're talking about how it is to juggle work and life. And then still try to do creative stuff. I think this would say something about filmmakers that they really get. It gets to them that they have to work more than doing creative stuff. And unfortunately, how do you juggle that? Because I know, you know, like you said, we have to make a living, you know? Yeah. But we also need to be creative in order to help our minds in order to help that creativity. So in your experience, how have you dealt with that within the years? Well, you know, tied before this whole pandemic thing happened. You know, it needs to be a key holder at a store called the tag bar, you know, have to wear like, you know, suits and jackets, people love and all that. And when, you know, this thing happening, you know, I couldn't be in front of people anymore. I had to hop into my teaching bag. Really, and it really just brought out the best in me because my life is, you know, built around passionate purpose, you know what I mean? And when those two things are ignited in me, it's like, okay, I can get paid for actually teaching what I know. You know what I mean? And also teaching to children that, you know, who are curious about, you know, about filmmaking and health stories get told and all that. So to have all the insight and knowledge, you know, lose, listen, I'm not gonna go too crazy. You know, all these gifts. Right, but you have to put it out there, especially for the younger generation, right? Yeah, you definitely got to put it out there because, you know, what we do as artists is. Generosity, you know what I mean? It's a public service, what we do. Sometimes we don't see the millions of jewels and sometimes we do. You know what I mean? But you get the stories out there and sell it. And the most audacity right, right? I mean, I think it is great because just to be able to get back, like you said, we have to be nice, you know? That is really what we should all follow all the time kindness. Regardless of anything, that's the first thing that comes in. And to be able to give that back like you said you're working short films, you're working on documentaries

"Why do you have the idea that that you might be able to to win. Well i'm from the hood. I was born and raised in the area of la call. People union which then and now is heavily hispanic and then we moved uptown to south central and i went to public high schools. I can talk firsthand about what's going on with our schools. I can talk first. Hand to black and brown people. Living in the barrio. Living in the hood exactly what the democrats have done. I gave an interview recently to a newspaper called the sacramento black newspaper. And i can tell when i walked in eric. I get this look. I'm an uncle tom. I'm a sell out. I'm an oriole. I'm a coconut all the things i've been called over the years. That's a new one larry. I've never heard of coconut on the sideline out. Yeah i got it. And i can just tell by their body language that they weren't feeling me until i opened my mouth and i said aren't you tired. Aren't you tired of the two-thirds of black parents say they don't want to send their kids now. Back to the los angeles unified district in the fall. Because because of virtual education they were able to see the crappy education. These were getting. Aren't you tired of the fact that seventy five percent of black boys cannot read it. State level viciously. And i told him out of the three hundred public school teachers in california. Most people estimate that all public school teachers in america. Roughly five percent of the era are incompetence if that holds in california talking about fifteen thousand incompetent teachers most of whom were assigned to south central los angeles not to the valley not in the west side but the south central los angeles and yet. You're pulling that lever for the democratic party. The party that's largest funder of the the tissues union the largest funded democratic party forgiven. Do some and they're not giving parents what they want. Polls show that wacko. Brown parents overwhelmingly living in the inner city. Wants school choice yet. You pulling the democratic party. That's not giving you what you want. Aren't you sick of being used. Aren't you being betrayed now after that ran. I'm not saying eric. They became ronald reagan. republicans. But i can tell for the first time a light went on. And maybe just. Maybe they're going to go in there with secret. Ballot check larry. Ob even though he hasn't our next to his name. I told them you can vote for me without telling anybody if you're an independent without telling anybody that democrats because race crime has no color. It's up the declining. Paul schools have as no color. It's down homelessness has no color. It is and the outrageous cost of living has no color and that is why as i mentioned for the first time in our state's history people making between fifty and hundred k. Are leaving and the number.

GOP Recall Candidate Larry Elder Aims to Help Voters ‘Connect the Dots’

"Welcome back. This is ed morrissey of hot air dot com filling in for hugh today and welcoming our great friend larry elder to the show. Give us a check in on the california recall effort and his gubernatorial run. Larry great to talk to you today to thank you for having me appreciate it. So what is going on in the campaign here. I mean you've really shaken things up here you've you i think reenergize the whole recall effort by jumping into this. And i'm i'm thrilled for your for the energy that you're bringing into this. How how are you seeing things out there in the campaign trail well so far so good the polls show that. I'm head of my republican rivals. But that really isn't the issue the issue is the first part of the battle is very simple. Do you want this man. Gavin newsom recalled it fifty percent plus one voted So the second question is whom do you want to replace him now unless fifty percent plus one says they want to re recall gavin newsom. It doesn't matter however republicans do and that's why i'm urging all of my republican rivals to keep your eye on the prize and the prize. If you have a nuisance surprised is the two point. Two million californians that signed the petition to get this guy out at least a quarter than it or independence and democrats. Who voted for him. Two years earlier the are angry about the corona virus mandates then only angry about the mandates are angry about the accuracy. You know he said up there that french laundry restaurant with the very people that drafted the mandates violating the mandates not wearing masks and that socially meanwhile his own two kids were enjoying in-person private education or at least slammed down education for everybody else in the state now the educational system already pretty bad especially for urban students seventy five percent of black boys believe it or not in california cannot read at state levels of proficiency and those levels. Ain't very high. Nearly half of third graders cannot read it they levels of proficiency and they lost a whole year of school learning three hundred thousand public school teachers. It is estimated by everybody. I talk to that. At least five percent of them are incompetent. That fifteen thousand teachers who are not be teaching now that we're the lapd there's roughly ten thousand officers lapd had. Let's assume five percent of them were bad. That's five hundred officers that are planting evidence or engaging in excessive force racially profiling. We wouldn't put up with it. We're putting up with fifteen thousand. They had teachers. Many of whom ended up In the inner city they're not in the west side not in the valley there in the inner city. That's why two thirds of black parents. According to a recent report i read do not want to send their kids back to the los angeles school district in the fall. They argue that the teachers end up in the schools that need them. The most and this is the teacher's union They are the largest funder of my opponent. Gavin newsom they adamantly opposed choice in school because they know that the teachers will not automatically be union members and they won't automatically get those dues. So i am an adamant. Adamant adamant proponent of choice in public school and my opponent is opposed to it.

Rachael Clark of Northern Kentucky University on Hope in Poverty

"And twenty thirteen northern kentucky university began a partnership with the west side neighborhood in newport a community across the ohio river from cincinnati and a few miles from our campus. The west side would receive help with parks community gardens public art and even a bicycle maintenance class. That was a way to teach science and math while having fun in k. U. students in turn would have experiential education opportunities early on in. Ku's community engagement team asked. If one of my psychology classes could measure hope in the residents of the west side. We agreed and also measured meaning in life. Hope is important because over the last two decades it has emerged at the moderately strong predictor of wellbeing on the west side. Most families live at or below the poverty line you might reasonably expect residents to have lower hope and meaning in life. They didn't my students surveyed west side residents and for the sake of comparison in k. U. students our findings published earlier. This year showed no major difference between the two groups. Indeed the newport residents generally scored higher for hope and meaning in life especially among newer residents. Who share a vision of what the west side might become as residents take greater ownership of the old neighborhoods future rather than seeing it to absentee landlords because of these surprising findings we decide to explore a results with a focus group with learned. That residents while hopeful. Personally were less optimistic about external forces shaping their neighborhood. They felt for example that municipal services were more readily provided to wealthier residents neighborhood and socio political factors impacted their levels of hope more so than individual factors still that didn't diminish their personal faith in their future or their commitment to a better westside.

A Look Back at the Stonewall Riots

Strange and Unexplained with Daisy Eagan

A Look Back at the Stonewall Riots

"The stonewall riots are named after the stonewall bar where the riots took place back in the day in new york city before there was a gay bar on every corner from the bridge to the upper west side there were only a handful of bars where lgbtq i plus people could gather for drinks believe it or not serving alcohol in bars to quote known homosexuals had just become legal in nineteen sixty seven two years before the stonewall riots. That's another insane fascinating story. If you wanna learn about the four men who literally fought for and won the right for gays to get hammered in public. I strongly suggest you google nyc sip in nineteen sixty six. That shit is bananas and those guys are heroes anyway. Most of the gay bars at the time were owned by the mafia. It's not like the mafia was trying to do something nice for gay people. It was more. Like i don't want them in my house but i'll take their money now. It was just a business opportunity. The mafia knew they could buy basically condemned. Buildings put almost no money into fixing them up and then open them as gay bars. They charge an entry fee to get watered down the drinks and pay off the cops to look the other way. Most of the gay bars were dumps and the stonewall was no exception. There was no fire exit. No running water behind the bar to wash glasses. And the toilets in the bathroom were constantly overflowing but it had a jukebox and it was one of the few places gay people go and dance with each other without being arrested or beat up so they put up with the inconveniences. What other choice did they have. The other to know about these mafia run gay bars is that even though they had these payoff deals in place with the local precincts police raided these bars all the time like once a month for the cops and the mob bosses. It was just part of doing business however for the people caught in the middle of all of this the raids were a nightmare. Anyone without id or really anyone. The cops felt like messing with was likely to get arrested. As was anyone not dressed in. And i quote at least three items of clothing as prescribed to their gender by nature. Meaning anyone drag was getting hauled into a paddy wagon and thrown in jail for the night this law by the way apparently dates back to the eighteen hundreds and was originally put in place to keep rural farmers from dressing up to scare off tax collectors.

"Yes tight with the guy who plays tony. Twin peaks join the twin peaks. Annemie really enjoyed taking together. Kids incredibly attractive in this movie. I will definitely famer. Sorry what i mean. I guess i need to hear praising rita moreno's performance in this film i is she want an oscar for it like it's obviously enshrined already. I more just wanted to bring it up as noting that anita is a character that i feel gets like really under served. That's not that's not quite fair. I think anita character is the reason. I got so frustrated with maria and tony as a couple especially at the end. When they're going through their whole. Oh you killed my brother and like no one's like Anita is also going through something right now and no one's like you know and she's going off to do favor and almost gets gang raped or you know. This being musical convention does gang-raped. You know like it's like i. I hate what happens to her character in the last act of smoothie and i think maybe that resentment kind of bleeds into my feelings about the central couple of her maybe probably by accident but it dealing. It doesn't give you you know it's her saying that she go killed maria that like sets this final tragedy in motion and she says that out of anger and spite and you know if you sit there and think about it like yeah. There's absolutely i absolutely get why she did that. But i don't think the film gives us enough of anita's like interior origami especially as you know how she's reacting to bernardo's staff to make that land as not villainous as you know someone in morning and someone yes someone going through her own stuff like the. The focus is just so strongly on maria. tony's emotions in that final third. And i only cared about anita i i think the film blowing a one of the other things that surprised me about this viewing was just the degree to which like. I don't think critics of time from what i'm reading felt the same kind of sympathies. That we do for the particularly portrayal of puerto ricans in general. I think the film has a lot more sympathy for them than it. Got credit for in terms of what they're experiencing in terms of prejudice and what they're experiencing in terms of abuse. And i think the film has a lot more sympathy with anita like a modern version of the film would give some kind of closure on her wouldn't have her.

"Maria falling each other after shared glance across the dance floor set everybody up for tragedy but while they're doomed love story is familiar and age-old the setting around them still feels relevant modern even with all its nineteen fifties and nineteen sixties. Trappings the way the jets and the sharks have more in common with each other than with the adults around them the way the instantly fall into comfortable camaraderie whenever the local cops turn up is darkly funny and immensely telling so as the way the jets sing in an idol moment. About how the law social workers and psychiatrists judge their juvenile delinquency. They accurately point at the neglect and abuse that. Turn them all out on the streets but they mock it as possibly a root cause for who they are. West side story certainly isn't a shocking today as it was in nineteen fifty seven or in nineteen sixty one bernstein's lurching score and screaming. Strings are familiar to us by al lat next rhythms dancing a regular part of mainstream culture instead of foreign feeling exotica an age of constant mass shootings the juvenile delinquent run amok plot seems almost innocent given how nervous both the jets and the sharks are about real weapons and possibility of real bloodshed. But the film's still feels relevant in some ways if robbins was making it today it's still have plenty relevant clippings to pin to that call board this time about drive by shootings and racist policing the scene where a prejudiced police lieutenant unloads as bil- and the sharks knowing that they can't fight back and they sullenly. Leave the area sarcastically whistling my country tis of the feels raw now as it did back then and the romeo and juliet plot where two people want to be together and their communities. Hold them back. We'll have some resonance in every age. The end of west side story still doesn't feel like it belongs to a broadway stage but it does feel like it belongs on the screen. Where tragic endings have always been welcome and sometimes audiences expect to walk out after the credits roll crying rather than singing. This episode is.

Describing their early voting experience yesterday on the Upper West Side, these air some excerpts from the listeners email. As prologue, this person writes during the June primary when covert was Maura at its height, I skeptically opted to do early voting to try it out. I was literally the on ly one voter in the entire early polling site, 102nd Street on Primary day When I voted, there were numerous voting stations and machines there. The most amazingly easy experience I ever had with voting. That was about the June primary. Now. Listen, all right. For the general election, scared of Trump and courts, invalidating mail ballots so didn't want to mail in eagerly anticipated early personal voting and touted it to France. On the Upper West Side. There were only two early voting sites, one at Broadway and 62nd Street and the one I went to at 102nd and Amsterdam, second largest in the city, covering 112,000 voters. Don't have exact figure but must cover at least 40 city blocks with 112,000 voters, writes the listener. Arrived. Approximately 4:30 P.m. was told by personnel was taking many hours, gritted my teeth and decided to check it out for a bit after an hour or so realized I was in it for the long haul and decided to definitely endure it today. That was yesterday. Now that I started Person writes. My line started at the school on 102nd in Amsterdam, Snake south to 1/100 in Amsterdam, Easter Columbus Avenue, then north on Columbus Avenue. A couple of blocks left through the center courtyard of the Douglas Nitra houses back to Amsterdam Avenue north on Amsterdam to 104th Street east on 104th to Columbus, down Columbus to a separate path, right pathway through Douglas houses. Back over to Amsterdam, south on Amsterdam to West 101st Street, left on 101st to rear entrance of school. Wow. Person continues line went smoothly. All fellow voters cooperate of cooperative and uncomplaining. None dropped out along the way all endured. Everyone wore a mask and didn't crowd in. Board of Elections personnel. Every 30 yards or so very cooperative and friendly also allowed people to step off line to neighborhood stores for snacks or bathroom. Answered enquiries.

"40 50 60 plus years And one of those organisations is the West Side branch of the end of the day. And you know what's interesting about this narrative? They're all of that. If this is really not the message that we can't I mean, you know, the end of the city was talking about this for 100 years ago. And when they're talking about the advancement of people of color, and it's permanently talking about black folks and talking about suffrage in terms of 100 years ago that black women Had to march in the back of the parade in 1913, and order for women to get the right to vote. They were counted in the census, but they weren't able to vote. Exactly, you know, And so there would have been saying, you know, increasingly, you know, we were counted. You know, when we're on the slave ships were accounted for when we're on the plantations, But all of a sudden, we don't count. We don't matter. That's just unacceptable, You know, so we've got to make sure that We get the message and narrative going, You know strongly within our community that we matter and we matter to each other, and that we value each other, and we value each other's lives. And all of that's part of what we've got to do in this sense, So I just want to really make from the point emphatically that. Yeah. You know, there's a deadline of September 30th. You know, for the senses, but this movement, you know, this effort is going to continue until it was coming together to make a difference in our community. How do you feel about that In terms of keeping this coalition intact Because right now between the organizations that you're working with Cheryl and Donald, you're looking at at least 50 organizations that have You know? Meet in the game, so to speak. Getting again skin in the game over Well, you know, and already the opportunity. No, go ahead show. Well, I was just going to say that, you know, already, there's new opportunities coming. For example, many of us are going to be involved with the contact tracing effort. You know, many of us going to be involved in the archery program. Cannabis sound legislation, you know many of us going to be involved, you know, with dealing with the crisis and trauma experiences within our communities on the south side of Chicago, so And here's The other thing is really critical about this. Don't you know we rotate leadership? You know, Simon in the lead and this particular sense of effort, But for example, we are now involved Grant with the safety foundation around. You know, reentry, you know for our three programs so safe is taking the lead on that one. So that doesn't have to be any identified lead among our coalition. We can support each other's only to show support each other's effort, and that's how we all win and really helped up Dr Manning. And Cheryl, How do we dispel this number One myth. That says that your information will be used to Come against you in terms of the government. Well, that's the hard part of it all down because we can say now when we had Obama people believed in government of what they said, and no more a lot more than they do now. Now we have so much controversy. People don't believe in government, so they believe that you're spying on me. And then when you pull things like sin and Isis to direct you out of their homes at night, your Cajun Children, you know that that is not the America that we know. And so everybody's confused and scared. People are scared. So if they don't want to be noticed, they don't want to be on the grid. They don't want to be part of this because they don't want to be hurt by it because everybody is barely there. Most of America is barely surviving. And then when we got hit by Kobe's Everybody back Now People had lost their jobs. And where do you eat? The majority of that is it's an our communities. So we have Dr. Continuous, ingenious, stronger get the message not only about the census, but there are so many other things that matter for our community that we have not been involved in, and we have to convince the new generations coming up. How important this is. And it is the game has not changed its just the players and how how is executed and we have to get smarter in this process, because why is it that are white counterparts are answering senses light away to 70 80 president to 90%. Right, and our people are feeling like you're okay, because it's never been a real big portion our community, you know, and nobody really thought how important and nobody really thought it through. And I think this process that we're doing now, you know, and don on his troops on the ground and us in our, you know, so it really gives a different message in a different flavor, and we have to keep that going. Because there are so many other things at stake that we have to pay attention. And finally, Donald Information in terms of where they can fill out the census or line or who they can call. Absolutely. You can go online to our my 2020 census dot gov again. That's my 2020 senses dot gov. Or if you're listening to this show, please pick up your phone right now and call a 44. 330 to their own to zero again. That's 844330 to 0 to zero, and it's going to take a less intimidating for you to answer a few questions about your so your household composition and is done and then we're just asking you to reach out to another five folks. Family members or friends. I mean, I paid college student girl who did not know about the sense of someone represented, You know, I mean, in either college folk, you know, did not know. And.

"The film was released in October. Nineteen sixty one. It became the second highest grossing film film of the Year and won ten Academy Awards including Best Picture. It starred Natalie would take the Antone and Rita Moreno. Sometimes I don't know which is thicker your skull or your accent. The opening was shot in San Juan Hill. A Puerto Rican and African American neighborhood. The production section was shooting at the same time. The neighborhood was being torn down to make way for Lincoln Center and new luxury apartment buildings. The filmmakers wanted to show the rubble to convey a sense of crumbling in the middle of rapid growth. The landscape of New York both physically and demographically are really being written into the visual language of the film itself. The demographics of the city for changing drastically in the nineteen fifties and sixties white folks. That are moving out to the suburbs. Following some of the jobs that were migrating outside of metropolitan areas off on hundreds hundreds of thousands of Puerto Ricans reminded to New York a half million migrated between nineteen fifty and nineteen sixty continental airlines announces. The arrival rival flight eight forty eight tourists flight from San Juan Puerto Rico. There was increased use of airplanes and so the people were traveling instead of by boat in a much longer sort of voyage they could go back and forth to the island of Puerto Rico much more easily and faster some people turf described actually the flight from San Juan Puerto Rico as a kind of bus in some ways just basically a bus with wings movie audiences in New York and elsewhere. I thought that West side story was giving them insight into the lives of the new arrivals. It's their entry point in engaging with that Puerto Rican experience. My Name Miss France's NATO month on it. I am a professor at Columbia University. She says the film portrays Puerto Ricans as violent and also colorful. They're great dancers. The women are Spitfires are virgins it uses Brown face to make the actors darker than they would naturally be also like the play. The film has lyrics like this sung by Anita my in Mac show which is not how Puerto Ricans typically see their homeland in fact an actual Puerto Rican song of the time captured by. WNYC hosts twenty Schwartz and translated by someone listening to it criticizes the mainland. Since I came here the call whether it's Brian to kill me. This is not my country. I am very this cost.

Can we go back to America. Mirage spoke spoke on a panel at the Kennedy Center my favorite Song to love and hate in west side story my favorite Song to love. Because you know that that that that that you know I I love the the rhythm the Howard propels you forward. I WANNA get up. I want to dance and I think the lyrics are the part of that song that are really powerful. Life can be bright in America. If you can fight in America life is all right in America. If you're all white in America I'm like wow this is nine hundred and fifty seven is some radical stuff to be saying. But I'm thinking about people who don't know anything about Puerto Ricans and listening to island end of Tropical Diseases where the hurricanes are blowing in the population's growing and the natives are steaming. I mean there's just so many things where you're you like the stereotype so that Song I love it and I cringe. Sometimes when I'm singing to myself all of this may not have mattered. If there were dozens of films mining the Puerto Rican can experience. But there weren't then and there aren't now which is why Professor Negro Montenero says so. Many people put her can heritage are angry when west side story is remade or remounted because it has nothing to do with the actual Puerto Rican experience. But it's still the lens through which many white mainland Americans see he Puerto Ricans despite the fact that there are major Puerto Rican movie starch. There are major Puerto Rican stars in music and other areas of cultural production election in the United States. The main and still major reference point culturally. That's appreciate. It's considered a valuable part of American culture itself. Itself is worse I story my mom is a is a fan saw thanks. She thinks it's so. The songs are so clever. And it's so glamorous Ryan and Noel is a poet and professor and New York University he says for many older Puerto Ricans like his mother. West side story was their first chance to see themselves themselves up on a big screen as three dimensional characters. Lin Manuel Miranda creator of Hamilton and Puerto Rican himself has said he couldn't believe that when he realized the sharks were Puerto Rican and after Hurricane Maria devastated the island. He raised money for relief. Efforts by releasing a song that pulled its chorus directly likely from the Song Maria.
