fronts are closer to urban wallpaper everywhere and nowhere scene and not seen necessary to live here it taken for granted paradoxically rooted in our personal history the somehow under rated cults pizza is family odd as it is to suggest a parallel world of local pub Keith pizza consumption operating in plain sight away from the fashionable the trends the food writers a calcified garage of a deep dish Chicago pizza Mecca that's exactly how I've come to see cold pizza as a multi verse wow dude went in I like him Chris Burley Chicago Tribune at do you agree with them I mean it he just had a caller called in and said yeah and he's talking about my area McCann recounting this troop is a little different because there's not a lot of pizza places out there under our ministries place ever but it mention the fox hole in the cannery which may be gold yeah I know that place he mentioned dusty's pizza and wonder lake the minute dusty's pizza was mentioned to me I had a a a a shot of adrenaline it automatically took me to that side door and it automatically took me to the paper wrap on the top of it and automatically took me to the only pizza that we would be growing up does this does this is a Friday night companion we drive over there and get it drive back there's a great pizza and that I I would fall into the category of a just these pizza cult aficionado so is that true do you are you the kind of person that does that are you a sampler I think my wife is a sampler drives me crazy she's all over the place seven or eight different pizza places are in our realm I was get frustrated because I just want to go to the Augustine that's it that's it I go there every day they'll be at and instead it's all what about this we're not that kind what about this guy I don't like that I would like to go back to the dusty's pizza experience good a wonder lake Illinois so if you got in place let us know three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred you don't it's a you know it's not this isn't a a pizza segment or like best pizza places in Chicago there are great places in here from Gage park to bills up in I guess he's in Vernon hills just essentially going through all the great places yeah pizza castle engage park is a burly talks about that are in Chicago that you call home more than what three or four times a month three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred is the phone number Jimmy's pizza on Lincoln and foster seven seven three says my wife loves it she's from Milwaukee and I'm born and raised in dawning on tavern style who isn't I don't know why we can't stop eating this New York style pizza but they have us on this the differences in New York style but I'll definitely cheating in a small cheese from Marie's on Lawrence on the DL honey what are you doing in there even this food yeah that's great I am I know I don't know do Lincoln in Jimmy's pizza Lincoln Abbas and only can foster Lincoln foster's great little area there place to live up in ravens would so that's no that route pretty well but as mentioned you know now in Chicago I am I think if you live in the south port area the Augustine is kind of fits the bill there's one in on Ogden then I go to all the time my brother goes to it all the time swears by have you got a pizza place whereby let's talk about three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred and why Mary Samberg whose is now our boss but when we work together in the morning show she had a slew of great places on the other end especially north suburbs bills is one of them there was another place she told me about I can't remember and I went it was awesome and but it was a great place because it was it was like I want to say it was in north brook somewhere in that area maybe Northfield essentially was just the store front and it was in a strip mall mostly carry out but we sat in there and it was like right next to the video poker machine and it was great I loved it but those are the kind of place I'm talking about if you're going to talk about your pizza place a better have a video poker place in it that's it right although it's a texture told me that in wonder lake across the street from dusty's was the old mill restaurant is right on the neighbors think and that was the fancy classy place when I was growing up to three put a collared shirt on if you want to go you know have dinner if grandma was in town and she she said that they they changed it up now that's all video poker video poker is in the lobby so that's kind of taken over a lot of different places in Chicago or Illinois towns three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred if you get a pizza place Braley talks about sixty talked about sixteen of these which is pretty great I'm sure yours is in here so you talked about pizza castle engage park bills pizza it's in Mundelein Saracen Vernon hills earlier Mundelein which is a double decker I like bills a lot because they get the peanut shells on the floor but the best thing is that and no one talked about it they've got a little league photos from the teams that they sponsor all over the place from the eighties and nineties or whatever every every kid isn't a little league Jersey whether it's boys or girls and they also have a huge poster on the wall of the different fish that you can find in the Great Lakes he wonders like kind of like this is a crappy is what it looks like and I was like that's so great love that right he does love that I think I think the color table it twice a month I haven't finished the fish yet I'm learning about the fish in the Great Lakes the pizza castle engage park bills Palermo's of sixty third street he profiles all of these which is great our house which from Rachel post our house lefties pizza kitchen and well met it's a shot at Joe's Italian villa in payloads heights smack dab in Rogers park when a pizza Roman's face th Bob's beats in Pilsen but I looks good if for a Roth so which is in the west loop around and when Glen Ellyn Union Square Nevinson Dante's pizzeria Logan square Barbies which by the way Barbies was and correct me if I'm wrong with part of these is the pizza place in Ferris Bueller when spieler when the principal goes to the arcade any goes behind the girl he says I got a says something French because that means you're you're the **** is mine she turns around spit in his face to the looks like that's in a Barnard that's the guys in the back and is like what's the score the cubs game zero zero who's winning bears so good three one two nine eight one seventy two other we got a ton of Texan here we caught everyone's attention world the lines is lit up I was gonna give me their favorite yet to me why it's your favorite though I don't just just drove me out of pizza place when you do a list of pizza place I don't know why this is your call place why you became a member of the pizza cult stay with us.

"U. V. is in the ditch trucks in the ditch four by fours and ditch semis in the ditch we repeat for Ford trucks in the ditch hashtag slow down I think that the that's a great that's a great week the Illinois state police just come with your seven twenty WGN talking whether it that's that's how you get people's attention although I hope they're not listed on the road on the on the brothers on the bright side it but four by four trucks in the ditch that's the point the point is it really doesn't matter what you think about all wheel drive or four by four four wheel drive right now because of the storm in the way that the storm came in before they could solve the roads and plow the roads you are in danger if you goal excessive speeds I'm not sure excessive but you know as we heard from some of the callers you called in they're going twenty twenty five miles per hour it's tough but that's a great tweet from the Illinois state police which is ill I L. state police three one two ninety one seventy two hundred is our phone number and coming up at eight o'clock we're gonna have Richard Clapton Josh Gordon we'll do our our big elite eight matchup of the fugitive verses about or I'm sorry excuse me adventures in babysitting one of those films is moving on and one is going home it's a clash we're down to the final four we've been doing this for a month and got to say we are we're getting down to the end of this thing right now the untouchables one this week blues brothers one this week Ferris Bueller one this week who'll join those during the final four will be the fugitive or will it be adventures in babysitting both of them going against each other tonight coming up in the eight o'clock hour let's go to Randy Randy is on the road Randy how are the roads yeah here's the secret is take the toll roads does nobody wants the pain rose still being there like I'll take the as per hour of the legal thank you see you go everybody's cabbages with the slow pace then the trappings later here for me I've eighty ninety four and three fifty five I think that'll change when I get out by his secretary wrote it all right but still that's a good that's a good tip if you want to paint a little letter he let let let's all right thanks Frank died I you know I drive a truck at the fourteen thousand dollars in tolls last year the late about a truck drivers out here in the road since I mean I think it it only gosh wow fourteen thousand dollars in tolls yeah I mean that's amazing we're talking about tolls this week in the office just you know because we had talked about the sky way toll been seven Bucks or whatever it is now I think it's even more that one way and how if you're in New York City and you're taking any of those bridges and the Manhattan it's now eleven dollars plus fourteen dollars in some cases I think they're moving out one of them can be twenty Bucks minutes then that's what does we're talking about in Chicago congestion pricing in taken three dollars surcharges and began jacking up pricing and and parking the goal of course to kind of ease pollution and congestion in the downtown areas and the way they look like they're gonna do it is charging guys like ranting take the fourteen thousand helpers were the tolls and he's right he's raise that is on three fifty five right now on a toll road and nobody's on it we are we're a fickle bunch here in the city of Chicago in this area right for like a I don't care if it's snowing I don't care if it's bad out I don't care if I got to go ten miles per hour in the roads aren't fraud I'm not paying that toll you can get governor I know my commute gonna be four and a half hours and it would have been twenty five minutes over there but I'm not doing it open road tolling mind but that's funny three one two ninety one seventy two hundred tonight of course paying attention to the winter weather that has come to our area and we're just kind of wrapping up as we know that the commuting time is now and it's gonna be a little bit longer I mean drive time tonight it's probably more into the the with the hours of eight o'clock and nine o'clock just based on the fact that so many people are trying to get home in such a limited visibility limited safety I guess would be the sole many reports of you know fifteen twenty miles per hour in bumper to bumper and and as the Illinois state police just told you a lot of cars trucks and four by fours and semis in the ditch what could have anybody I mean it's as I heard row and worn and Kevin talking about just takes one kind of acceleration to find yourself and your tires not gripping and find yourself on the side of the road and not only does that cause trouble for all of the people who are gonna help you to get out of that situation but it could affect traffic patterns for the rest of people trying to get home so even though I know I've been there I have been there trust me I grew up in wonder lake Illinois and you get on the some of those routes up in that area even even beyond the expressways I'm sure I heard the woman earlier and row talking about a guy can road I know that very well that's backed.

the pieces are about signage in Chicago and is is Saad suit is since I started making these three the sun's been taken down really the berries cut rate drugs on walkie Avenue which you don't to his credit my pal Chris Keogh news warmly collectors and confidants and gives me in a great business ideas he bought that sign also the three aces and then I did he bought that sign so virtually I think all the signs are going to wind up with a pretty cool place but I did the heart of Chicago cards home over a Western Avenue which I don't I don't know what goes on there wanted to talk to those guys in the is is like it's it's sketchy so as any business is because you are challenging and I did man he's you know yeah I miss being able to do that ma'am these sometimes I go there now and just watch other people when you say you did decide when you mean you did this I made the images of them made so you're going around injures poems about them yeah and you did the diversity rock and bowl which is really absolutely which is which is a place from my son in law was little bong smoking friends used to go and in in the high school and the rock and bowl is kept Kimber rich history used to be the river bowl right which is right there by the river and I love this sign it's a great sign is there something about the science it is just an optimism about them you know and and and make a great deal of them come from the middle of last century from the fifties you know we do survive World War two and won it and you know basically save the world and these guys rock painter shingle out yes it's fun

there the the they tell the story they their total who we were well we ate where we stayed I I really think those things matter when you talk about history now you know history seems to be a great big word but it is made up of incremental moments and the signs and really enamored of and I wrote a lot of bottom I read a lot about them and I think you know for the next book it is it's from there

trust to bring check bird best to life you know I mean I read it when I read it I thought men look at each of the system may mac through then I can we give this to me and I'd been basically doing theater pretty much years before that I mean it is so much that I didn't really have many side benefits anymore and I mean all of patriotism first work I did thought mattered you know patriot and then

"Ton of tax and I'm gonna get through all of them about my what is low down no good horrible thirty but is the the the book about the horrible no good day there's like a children's book about that that was my day today as I was coming into was gonna drop my wife off at work and then I was gonna come in and tape mincing rascals you know John Williams great podcast he does with everybody about the week in review I once in a while I'm on that show like to be on that show I double parked in front of my coffee shop on green at which is on the way into the studio I went in I got a Cup of coffee I came out three and a half minutes in my car was gone it was towed by a city tow driver I had to go down to the doldrums of Wacker drive to get it hundred seventy Bucks for the tow hundred fifty for the ticket I did park because it was in fits within fifteen five inches I don't six of fifteen fifty whatever the ad that says on there fifteen I guess it's inches maybe from hydrant fire hydrant uhhuh someone make something clear because I don't think I made that clear it's not like I'm I'm seeing the hydrant and I'm I'm I'm parallel parking into the hydrant there is a sign that says PO zone and you try to get as close to that sign and over that sign and not blocked the hydrant you know the whole deal you do to put the hazards on to go inside get cocking come out so I I I understand that there is there is a need to vilify me for breaking and and the six three oh set rules are rules dude how many times you said you to park there said I parked there hundreds of times are like so you've got caught once I think of seven seven three Singh so you park illegally every day to go get coffee and got caught once privileged much you're absolutely right I hope that I hope that you don't retroactively get the ticket for all the other times so yeah now there's another looking into so let me get this straight you there are two people in the car yeah now this was brought up today as well yes I'm in the car with my wife and we both went into the coffee shop booth yeah well that's going to change from here on out we have two options one one of us stays in the car or circles drives around yeah ordered or parks it and keeps has a town but is in the driver's seat so somebody comes along to move along or two I go hide in the bushes so when the driver comes to tell like pop out right gotcha that's the other out try and figure out which one I want to do yeah we just don't get coffee anymore let me start about what this is going to do to my marriage because it wasn't my idea in the first place to get coffee I like the hearing we have at home I don't like to stop at the coffee shop yeah they look what happened right now the city Laurie like for everybody else they're driving a wedge you know start look inward I'm gonna blame my partner that was the plan all along right they want us to get divorced so then there's two different tax bodies anyway I lived in a loft in the river west neighborhood for years by building this one the first loft conversions in that area nothing interesting that's interesting story for decades there's a city ordinance stating that no building can go higher than six stories between hosted in Ashland look at your neighborhood now those buildings go up with twenty buildings that were built there twenty or thirty years ago there being dwarfed by buildings that completely go past the height requirement or ordinances of the time that's true your daily fought against that remember right in that area because it was a meat packing area Fulton district everyone loves now the full market district Republicans that and the beautiful re done neighborhood sterling bay the whole nine daily early on was like that is not going to be residential and it was around a man who changed it but it's changed now to the point that they just hire and so these buildings that followed the rules twenty years ago fifteen ten years ago that the only bill to six stories are getting dwarfed in their property value is out and everything because everybody wants to live in a high rise old is everybody right I get that this isn't necessarily a conversation about development it's more about the idea that with this which seems to be just a cash grab to get as much money as the like they can get from you before the holidays start with schools a two and a half weeks strike that puts my son and my family behind the eight ball as we try to catch up you know of because of a sensually a I don't even know what a spitting contest between the union and the city hall and and city hall the property tax fight that we're seeing about this balancing this budget and whether or not we're gonna pay more money and what about the old man even though they're voting for and then the other things about the city crime traffic density all that kind of stuff the and the expensive the thing I have any mental blow your mind Pete you know how much the bill was today at the coffee shop for two coffees want coffee in in one fancy coffee twelve Bucks twelve Bucks I'm not gonna add that on top of the three hundred all towers for two coffees I mean my coffees probably three dollars because it's it's just normal but still three dollars yeah it's like some fee gonna Macha thank thank do you see it but you I feel you seem to enjoy your neighborhood I do and I enjoy being a Chicagoan I have been a booster and I do it on this program I love the arts and culture in this town I love the I I am blown away by the architecture I I love I'm I'm proud that you can enjoy all that I could be right I grew up in wonder lake Illinois hi can I identified as a Chicago and then so why do I have to live downtown in downtown Chicago now I think it's six to six three oh says living downtown to best we'll place in Bartlett Anna place two blocks south of the river walk we we both work in the financial district as soon as our number two leaves for college were selling a place in Bartlett coming back downtown full time hello yeah how long is your if you if you're just like staying at home you're watching TV or you're not really getting out and about in the neighborhood I could see I go yeah right but I getting out of this but you are you are writing there you are getting I'm a branch Statoil's right which you know I I pay for the pocket book no doubt about it but it also makes I mean just that simple things like traffic is a beast when you live in the west loop it's not as much of a beast as saying you live in one of the suburbs have to come downtown now we work off hours you know obviously the show was until ten o'clock at night traffic isn't as big of a issue isn't it might be for people who work in the rush hour in the west this person SO three one two says I work in I live in the west loop as well yes it is very frustrating right now what you really want to move to the suburbs I wouldn't do it I accept the taxes are part of life and I write my alderman about issues I also agree with the yellow vest to something that irks me why are they exempt from paying the park I see it all the time that is true and I I get it because they this is what kind of drive you crazy is that construction sites get started so early they will go and fill up all the legal parking spots that are left are barely any in this neighborhood now and you don't have in place to park and I don't know if it was free or not free I just think that it's probably five maybe that's what they get if you put that up there I don't know Bob who we you're talking to an S. talked him off the air he says all those they they all pay for those by that they don't get paid a near the levers doing the building with the developer will pay for twelve spots right so the city's getting money the city's getting money they don't care okay my my plight and you know it's funny because the story was a big story we talked about on this program that one of the things that mayor Lightfoot did one of the things that I thought was was actually a great thing is that she took one the first thing she did as mayor hi she said you know what enough of these regressive fights we have to stop going into poor communities in Chicago and every time somebody doubles to running for childcare whatever slapping a ticket on or tone amount there were a couple of stories I think was pro publica another story that showed the discrepancy between a neighborhood like Inglewood and a neighborhood like the west loop where if I'm double and I think I even talked about that saying Jeez I double all the time and get a ticket to put to prove the point you know and and I think that may your life it did that for equity the problem was equity means that we equally get screwed right equity is not fair and just the just means Hey you know what we're **** people disproportionately in some neighborhoods let's let's let's let's make that okay and screw everybody equal opportunity so I don't know I I get this feeling I talk to my neighbors and I talk to other people but it does feel like this new budget order this new even the ride Cher sur charge everything they have decided that the place that they're going to get their money they're not gonna stop regressive finding they're going after the middle class they've got that extra two hundred fifty dollars maybe that they're gonna they were gonna spend Christmas presents but they got it so let's get it from they're the ones that might have seen an uptick in their property values so let's get it before they actually sell and that's that's I think that at the end of the day that's the problem when you see these big stories about people leaving Chicago I think that's the store that's not told that there seems to be a almost like a runaway truck to to equal and opposite forces coming right at each other and it's city government and how they are developing revenue streams and a middle class that seems to be forgotten.

"People are talking about seeing check out this summer. Vine street barbecue competition. Coming up in August. I don't know what vines in park ridge. I will do that Libertyville days as mentioned that. That. The only thing I would say to the city of Libertyville. Come on. Can't come up with a better name, Libertyville days. Like at least mckenry has today's you kind of know what you're getting then. And they used to I grew up in wonder lake Illinois mckenry would be yesterday's. And I don't know if they still do it. They may still do it, but they did quarter beers that was the big draw, and then everyone would just get sloshed twenty five cents. And they get so sloshed that there would be so many incidents that this time because, like, oh, everyone's going nuts. So I think it was July, or August is when this happened. So it'd be really hot out on their ninth beer, which cost them overall, two dollars three dollars or something. So I think they may have changed that over time, but Libertyville days, you got to come up with something a little bit better. Like Dixon, Illinois has petunia fest. And they say they have listened to this rides food bans, dog dock jumping dog dog dock jumping dock jumping, the dogs jumped from Dr doc. I'm assuming yeah. I would see I'm, I'm intrigued the tuna fest has dog dock jumping. Never heard of either. You've got a let's see here. Fire engine the five eleven club of Chicago in the fire. Buffs of Illinois, sort of like a twenty fifth annual fire. I guess this would be this is right downtown here in over Jefferson and Taylor. But fire engine rally, a swap, meet all that going on this summer and claw the brickstreet fest that we mentioned the Delvin, and then one more here as I see before we move on here. The university park end Emami festival and the month. And of course Eddie, it's like Japanese culture. Or is it just Etima? It's the ETA mommy festival university park now. You could be thinking to be making these up there could not be an ETA, mommy festival, and I'm just re- haven't done. Recent china. Larry's joke that I'll send the radio station. What if there was an ETA, mommy festival? But you know what if you did you went to great lengths to trick us? Good for you for you. There's one in mulberry. Arkansas are we sure there's one in Chicago university park? Okay. It looks like there might be one. We want to talk about this other story, and we already gotten some texts on this, because people are very well, they're outraged actually in Springfield, Illinois. We've been following this story of the weather, man. His name is Joe crane, and he lost his job after speaking out on the air about this, these code red weather alerts that Sinclair broadcasting, his big big boss was mandating for all of the stations to have a code red alert attached to your weather broadcast. I think there was some sort of a couple times a week or whatever, regardless, it seemed of whether or not there was a weather event that warranted, something, like code red, and he sort of thought. Well, call red sounds like it's it's scaring our big graphic. I've seen it. This code red, and it wasn't just him. I mean, he he kind of started off saying that a lot of people on Facebook and comments are saying, that's just too much listening because I don't want to paraphrase say because I think it's better just to hear from him. Joe crane, here's what he said to his viewers, so we want you to know it's not us. This is a corporate initiative, the code red alert, and behind the scenes, many of us have tried to dissuade it for the last few months to try something else that's less controversial to the viewers, and it continues to be controversial based on all the social media that continues to this day. So keep in mind, despite the fact that this facility is owned by a corporation, it's still license under the authority by the Federal Communications Commission, the serve the public interest, convenience and the city. So you still have a voice keep those cards and letters coming. So he was saying these weren't attached to a national weather service, you know, kind of alert or anything like that. It was simply the company says you've got to come up with. A with a red alert. Go ahead and do it, and he didn't seem to feel comfortable with that and the viewers. Really agreed. They said we trust you. You've been this community. We, we know that you're someone who seems to really care, and his boss. Doesn't see it that way. They said you're, you're not following what we're telling you to do. And so you're fire. They had a fast forward to yesterday in the at the Illinois farmers market, the Illinois state fairgrounds. They had a protest people came out with signs saying he's run for president that he is being wrong that he was just being fair, that he's a great guy that, that the station is wrong that he's the one who was telling us the truth. Why aren't you people were really angry about this now? You go to Facebook page. There's a supporters of meteorologist, Joe crane page with fifteen thousand people liking this page fifteen followers to the page as well and just pages and pages of posts of people saying that this is wrong that they did think that, that code red thing was crazy. It was alarmist. And it wasn't being fair to your viewers who really did think that something really bad was happening when there are, if think about tornadoes, moving through the severe weather events that happened in our area that it's important not to scare people when there's nothing to see human beings pushed back on, on, when we do have graphics and developing, and breaking and code red and all this kind of stuff that just seems to be more and more and more in our society. So it's nice to see someone of, of distinguish of someone who, who is respected in the community say that, you know, this is too much on one hand, you support that. And on the other, you know as as the as the station has said is listening to you can't speak out against your company when you're on the company's station. But I think the way he handled it seemed fair. He wasn't saying I hate my company. I think they were wrong. I think that he was. I don't wanna make sure I'm explaining to you. You know what this is all about? And why, why we're using that because I wanted to make sure that, you know, that there isn't anything that you should be totally alarmed by that's what I heard when he said it didn't sound. It didn't sound like he was really making I agree. I think that I would be fully in the camp to support him to play devil's advocate and you've been in the news business, and you've been tried voice face for for years in Chicago. But you couldn't see you saying, if you didn't like something that NBC was doing or someone else was doing on the screen taking time out of your broadcast to say that you are firmly against it without repercussions or consequences. This is different because it's the core of his job to tell people when there's a problem when there is a real issue. And Lauren you ran into this because you can speak to this first hand you had several mandates things that you were supposed to read that I think when it crosses a certain line, and you feel that, it's, it's cutting into your ability to be trusted, or your -bility to communicate facts and truth that you sort of feel as, if there should be some reference to it. I felt he handled it. Well, obviously, the bosses didn't I think it goes back to the code of ethics. That's the one of the first things we learn when we go to school, right? There's a code of. Ethics in journalism. That's why we have our jobs. That's why people trust us when we deliver the news or the weather, and we need to stand by that. And if we're being told even by bosses to do the other thing, which would be lying or not be transparent about something then we're not doing our internal jobs as journalists in my opinion. So the fact that he felt that, that was, you know, whether it's sensationalizing the weather or incorrect, however he specifically felt about it. It was important for him to voice his concerns, and share that with the viewers because otherwise people start to fall for it or, you know, they get angry with, you know, this professional who's taken many years to prove that he should be there should be trust. He's built up a lot of trust in that community has no doubt. I mean, what you look at the Facebook page people are saying, here's a guy who took time out of his days to just send emails to my sister, who he didn't even know, just wish her well, because she's going through. Cancer treatments. He's been out in the community. He's, he just seems like a voice of, of somebody who cares. But someone who's trusted on top of that. And that's important for meteorology is not in San Diego. He's not making a lot of money. I can tell you that I know the these jobs, don't pay as well as many people think, especially, especially in small markets. Bads absolute seemed like a passion for him. And he wanted to do what's right. And because of that he loses a job. Let's hear from the management management because clearly they're getting the emails. They're, they're looking at the Facebook pages. They're seeing that this response has happened. And this is how they're responding. The.

"The conversation to ninety one seven eight four seven I'd love to go to therapy. I believe wholeheartedly in the process. I have my thirteen year old daughter seeing therapist right now help with middle school issues. Trouble is we have limited means, and we really can't afford for me to go to my priority is my daughter's. So how could I make it work for me to any thoughts? It's a great question. Don't know how I know insurance covers therapy. And that's been a big issue. Obviously with the way that the rules have changed with insurance. But if it's out of pocket, I believe you could probably go to. The company or the therapist that that works with your daughter, and and maybe workout some sort of plan. I'm not sure how that works. But. I'm sure you can bartering therapy. Buying buying watch on canal street. No, I'm not sure how it works. But I, but I know that that there is covered by insurance, and you just have to do a co pay. But you already know that if you have your daughter in therapy, technically, only psychiatrists has a patient has an MD therapists has clients one five tells me, so I was wrong. I Paul just for that. Learn something new every day. Yes. The book referred to clients. I would think patients in the areas. I apologize for that. Three one therapist, he retired. Now, I listen to WGN. Four seven social media about detachment connection. I don't know about that. Although I do agree that there's detachable moments in social media. But I do think that the whole concept of of Facebook, and Twitter and Instagram and all of the like, my space friendster was was feeding need for connection. Maybe a fake connection may not be that that was at the core of that. We were we want communities, but that they were they saw desire in the human condition for connection, and they have exploited it. To make money. Now, you get something out of that product. Although the old fascinating thing that they say about any product if it's not if you're not paying for it. Then you're the product being your data's being sold to two big companies. But the point here is. I wonder those those companies didn't do any. It's not like technology was this was like the biggest thing since the toilet Facebook. There was something about the desire the human condition for us to connect that made that platform work and continue to work. That's why you still use it. Yeah. I love connecting with people on social media. I have prior promises per getting connecting people in real life. Like, I'll be out and I'll see somebody. Yeah. I'm I'm Facebook friends with that person. And just you fit nets. Good enough. Just weird. Like, hey, we're Facebook friends. I think I've liked post beers. Yeah. We've talked about this before too. It's gotten to the point where it's so personal people are so over share in some ways that when you see them you feel like you shared intimate moments or creeped on their intimate moments. That's always what gets me is the idea that I'll run into somewhat a co worker. So or else would be like, oh, yeah. Hey, how's it going? How was how was the gym? Whatever you posted accidents saw like. I was a workout the other day. That's right. Just because I follow you on Instagram, and you showed a picture of you working out. Yeah. That's that's the part where it's almost. That's where I I would think that there's this false connection because let's be honest. If you saw this person Jimmy wouldn't actually talk to them. He would walk or you pretend like you're really really trying to hit that treadmill? Guy at the gym that I'm friends with for some reason and hill he likes what L post or something? And he'll always then when I see him. He'll actually ask he'll ask about something. Like, hey. So you know, I saw you post. A you're at the cubs game. You know, what do you think or you may say I say so how's the cubs game? This little weird. But at least he's making the effort, I ran into a friend of ours mutual friend of ours. Jensen Bella not too long ago. She's in the Illinois center here, and she's one of the editors for block club. Yeah. I just saw her in the Peduaye. We're walking by donor for years. Great great. And I ran into her, and we hug and say we are in this Bill. That's great. We're over here. I I said they're her I go use something good just happen to you. And I was referring I thought on Instagram, but I couldn't remember couldn't recall my brain didn't work for me to go. I saw and I was like you would happen to you. Yeah. Generically what I said her which was you had things happen. And you told us about it. What were they ain't congratulations? This is so random, and she's like a moving or something like that. And then I was on the plane went out to Colorado this weekend, and I picked up a Chicago magazine. And there was a seventeen people to watch. And Jen was in it, and it was great. And that's what I that's what I recalled it. I'm like she put up the picture of the Chicago magazine spread police. You say that you're like, oh, it's something, you know. Chicago magazine. And then, you know, not that not that it was your cat. That that's part of we have this connection. But I feel like if I truly had seen Jen. And and you know, it seemed that I feel like it would have been more offensive going. You generic? Does. Hi coming up. Speaking of connection, and we've been having this conversation tonight about talk the talk and walk the walk. The next story. We're gonna talk about at the top of the nine o'clock, right? After the news is is a story. I think connects a lot of Chicago, that's the story of wax, trax, records wax, trax was both a record label. And of course, a record store on Lincoln avenue in Lincoln park. And it was from nineteen seventy eight to nineteen ninety two is is the years on this. The store might have been opened a little bit longer. But that was the the length of the record label and the band's that came out of that time were bands like ministry. From two four to the industrial music and experimental punk scenes in Chicago. And the reason I it's funny because I put up on on social media. Speaking split media that we're gonna be talking about the documentary industrial accident and also talk with Julian ASU is the daughter and the director of the documentary, which is the daughter, Jim Nash is one of the co founders of wax trax records. And the response was was sentimental. In the people on Twitter that liked to re tweet it or made a comment or on Facebook. They were talking about their experiences with wax trax records and this concept of of having an attachment to a business having an attachment to. A moment in time and wax, trax record isn't. I I was just thinking about that. Because I had to piece it together at the story where when I was doing the research on this. Like, I have my own personal story where I was I remember I was at Columbia college, and this would have been early nineties ninety one ninety two so like that and I was commuting in from wonder lake Illinois and yet to move to Chicago. So I would take the metro train from crystal lake take it into Chicago, and I would go to school, and then it was almost like a nine to five job, and then pick all my classes. So that I could be on the five thirty train home, which would give me home at like ten o'clock at night 'cause so far away. When you're talking about train the card train a car. So anyway, I remember I got into the intro radio class Columbia college. Nothing was the second class or maybe he's a second second class look Tuesday Thursday class. So the Thursday, I had a class with a friend of mine I befriended a guy in the first class, Mike. I'm just so on Thursday. We were in the first class in this class. He goes he turns to me right before we go into the second class. Does he wanna skip? And I'm like you can't skip. What if the guidance counselor catches you like, oh, wait, this is college? This is brand new not irresponsible. But it was he was like, let's get outta here. Let's go you wanna go up to Lincoln park. And I was like. This is the plan along the bad kid already thinking wasted money. You know, just a class as teachers gonna hate me. So he had a car got it out a lot and drove up to extracts. And that was the first time I had been in waxrx because I didn't live in Chicago. I'd actually been to extract before a friend who was at the Paul, but it was like on my own where it was like during the day. It was a Thursday at three o'clock or something I walked in there, and that memory sticks with me as as a moment of almost. Independence. Yeah. Do whatever I want. Now, I'm going to adult should go to class. There's no doubt paid for that class. And I'm going to get docked, but don't have to sound like high school where you're gonna get the tension. And there was which I felt like I was doing something sneaky, but I was an extract. Yeah. Similar similar experience with that was living at home going to Leyla for a while. And same thing. I would take the metro down to the downtown campus. Dry dry Tilly Grange park, then take the metro and some days, you know, just don't feel like doing it. You know? But then you're like, okay. My mom's on expecting me back until two thirty. What am I going to do for five hours? I'm not good drive downtown go record store and Peru's. Peru perusing was can't come back with right perusing was a two hour affair. Cruising. Now is looking at our phones and scrolling as fast as we can perusing at the record that was that was an art form. Yeah. The wax record in ministry is well that band I saw ministry at one of the lollapalooza at alpine valley. I forgot which one they were on the first and second or third one is like that. It was truly the scariest moment in my life. They purposely played at dusk. That was their thing. I think they were like the third and they play that industrial kind of hard driving rock music. And I just remember the mosh pit on the hill at alpine valley was like huge circle..

"Eyes. The book is guns down eager full-scale. Absolutely amazing. The the the takeover of the GOP by basically a rogue. Largely billionaire funded rogue. I lack the word fascists. I mean, you know, for lack of a better where Patrick Weinrich he's a judge or he's been nominated to be a judge. He's a lawyer. He's been nominated be federal judge. He's going to be it's going to be voted on today. His mentor is Scott Pruitt. And when he was asked about stock holdings and business dealings. He basically tried to cover the stuff up and the Democrats in the Senator furious about Mitch McConnell said, you know, we're only going to have to debate on this. So you have three minutes to speak or whatever it may be. And this. The Americans the alliance for Justice the president Aaron just released a statement. She said it's hard to imagine the Patrick Weinrich is even more ethically compromised than we originally new, but these reports show this to be the case his efforts to hide business dealings stockholdings present clear conflicts of interest in our disqualifying. Anyone who wants to be federal judge in our all too reminiscent of the deplorable behaviour of his mentor. Scott pruitt. He's going to be the first judge that they vote on under these new rules. Meanwhile, the judge is on the supreme court, but cavenaugh the guy that I'm I am sure. Donald Trump is expecting is going to is going to cover his, but is going to protect him Brad Kavanagh when he was the DC circuit appeals court judge his first job as a judge, by the way. In fact, outside of working for George W Bush on torture memos. Maybe his first job as a lawyer. In a case called blooming versus Federal Election Commission. He basically said that people who are not citizens and who are not. Legal permanent. Residents of the United States can send all the money. They want. To warp. And twist our politics as long as they don't give it directly to the candidates. So we got this group was called concord management. Which is actually a corporation run. By some Russian oligarchs. That was putting out that was buying ads in twenty sixteen with messages like Hillary Clinton doesn't deserve the black vote. Hillary is Satan and her crimes and lies approve. Just how evil she is. And Brad Kavanagh was like, oh, yeah. That's just fine. So you think he's going to hold Trump to account somehow? I doubt it art in wonder lake Illinois says here you disagree with me about what? Art listening to PT. I don't get it share. Why is it that the people that disagree with me? Never come on the air. They they chicken Joel's in Whittier, California. Let's KPFK jewels. What's on your mind today that they should impeach? I mean, how money what kind of how many mountains of Himalayan mountains of evidence, they need these people Democrats. It'd be like fired up they should be looking at this political opportunity. That's get rid of him before his cancerous. You know influence that's get rid of him. You know, there's not American in the country that can't see what's going on. And it's really sad because the rot go so deep and just constituency that it just a footnote on American American citizen, and he's he's driving it so deep I mean, he's basically decapitating the leadership of the department of homeland security. All of the Democrats right now need to unite. But I guess they're on the same side. When you talk about the military, you know budget because they the revenge on seven fifty and they wanted to this has nothing to do with the military budget jewels. This this this is criminal activity in the White House being condi-, you know, the president of the United States giving state secrets to to foreign actors in this case Russia, and God only knows what what people overheard down mar-a-lago when he was talking about bombing the crap out of Syria sitting there with president. Gee, I mean conducting statecraft right out in the open any sny for any country can be sitting with the president for two hundred thousand bucks. I mean, really this is this that in itself is something that should be impeachable. Look at this way, the founding fathers wanted this equal playing field. You wanna get away from the monarchy you want? Everybody to be equal those constitution. You know? We're all created equal. Now, we've got an century. We've got these billion trillionaire. No. And we're so unequal. So the whole spirit of the American. You know independence is being defied right now by by Trump. I get that that's been going on since Reagan. And it started back in the nineteen twenties. You saw the start with Harding. And and and of course, reached its climax in nineteen twenty but chills I get. I get your point. Thank you very much. We're we're kinda wandering field here. John in San Francisco's listening to real talk nine ten eight John what's up. Tom. I'm gonna call table stakes on the Trump administration. And what I mean by that is initiating a solution to the the this whole nightmare. They were having to live through. And if you love me an opportunity on explain what I mean, what on the is that back in nineteen eighty seven. Ronald Reagan initiated, the very first extrordinary rendition on Achille, Laura hijacker, the Mediterranean and ever since then Republicans have used extrordinary rendition for whatever purposes they need to solve whatever issues they have. And why suggestion is that we use on the Trump crime family and have rendition to foreign cell and initiate proceedings of impeachment imprisonments now while there sometime. Opportunity to do this John. Get out raged. You are get your sentiment. But just because the Republicans are breaking the law and have been breaking the law Zain's Reagan, doesn't it doesn't mean the Democrats should break. A and b the American people are not gonna put up with. And in fact, nobody should put up with somebody kidnapping, the president of the United States or his family and spiriting them off to to you know, some hellhole to be thrown in jail come on. I mean, I get your being hyperbolic for for a fact, but that ain't gonna fly. I think your nearest meeting all the people on the right? That are tracked into the terriers in Republican party, the part of the reason, they're not they're not attracted to the Democrats. They have no cojones when it comes to acting on on narrow principles. Yeah. But that's on that is that is not it's not somebody showing their manliness by breaking the law that that is breaking the law. You know, John. I I get your point. But I'm not going to continue going down that road with Richard and calcium at Michigan. Hey, richard. What's on your mind? I totally baffled by what? Well, the thing. It's it's, you know, I'm listening to the conversations going on. And obviously, the Trump and crime family need to be brought up on Rico charges, but I'll in the hell the ago bowed it when every singly seems like all the bases are covered. There's no way to there's no crack in the armor. Well, this is what Trump has been doing. He he has as head of the executive branch of government, which is the the branch that wields all the police powers in in in the United States. He has said about to corrupt the cops. Basically, it's like it's like the mayor of town who has been committing crimes for years and years, you know, corrupt real estate mogul becomes the mayor of town. And as soon as it becomes mayor of the town. He fires the police chief who was you know, independent and looking into things and replaces him with toady. And then he fires the assistant police chief in replaces. Her with toady. And then he fires the head jailer and fires replaces them when the Tony and pretty soon, you got nothing, but toadies and understand that what day. How can we do about it? I mean, literally ease acting like the dine I've believe that Landman said that, you know, extreme measures need to be taken. But how can we take any kind of measures? When like I said all the bases. It's like he's built an editor. -able wall around outta we kick through it. Right. And he is covering up his crimes the cause of this Justice department policy, which goes back to two presidents who themselves apparently committed crimes saying that the president is so busy throughout every day. Now, how this applies to Donald Trump who spends eight hours a day watching television. I don't know. I mean, I seriously, Richard. Exactly. But if you go back if you go back, and you read the Justice department, finding, you know, the ruling in which they said that it's it's our policy not to indict a sitting president the reason that they gave is because the president is so busy and his actions are so consequential and so important to the country that something like criminal indictments should be deferred until after he's no longer in the White House. So that he doesn't get distracted from his job. And here we've got a president who played who has played golf more often in two years than Barack Obama did in eight years who spends six or eight hours a day watching television and calling his friends, and and does very little actual business and the business that he does do is telling people who work for him to break the law and getting peo- at them when they don't and firing them. I mean, you know, if there was ever a president who should be indited, it's Donald.

"Chicago Seven twenty WGN. Justin Kaufman, Steve Cochran show, which till ten o'clock this morning, David Mary Sandberg. In for Mary van de Ville, Steve Steve Cochran, the whole gang back together after Labor Day. I hope you had a great holiday and the best part of this week. It's already Tuesday. Right. Always always good during member as the kids. Go back to school today in Chicago. And I always put an asterik down that saying, and I'm very aware too. Many people who live outside of the Chicago area that your kid has been in school for almost a month or most of the suburbs. Right, right. That's what I mean. It's crazy to think about that Chicago starts so late. And there will always be fanfare in the media today for kids are back to school, really head-scratching. I've been in school since August twelfth. But it's the biggest group as an CPS group. I think so. Yeah district. So we'll see we'll look at the prereqs showed up who didn't the stories of the the you'll have the all the reporters out in front of random schools today. Talking about public school politics instead of school, and what's happening in the Bill c and we never went to school before Labor Day when I was a kid. I mean, there's there is after Labor Day was first day of school and Cochran who says the same with them. So I would say well that you guys are both on the east coast. Yeah. I remember his mid grownup wonder lake wonder lake Illinois, great wonder lake at Harrison elementary. That's on the coast. It's on the coast to coast involved, there's an east and west Wunderlich. But the it was always mid August out right after my birthday, which is the fifteenth. So feel like yeah. The still as an adult as having a kid who is in CPS, I'm adjusting to the idea that school. Starting now feels like it should have started two three weeks ago though, it seems more ideal because you're you're long holiday weekend. Plans can be better. If your kids are not in school. We got to do road trip end the summer to get a little art trip to Cleveland and Pittsburgh, and we're back now. Hey, we missed you too. By the way, I think. The jury still out on if we missed him. I did. Well, I did I every time I was anywhere in a in a museum and exhibit. I'd see a great painting. And I turn to the left. I go how Steve Cochran was here. I wish that Steve. Herbert it. Yeah. It'd be like this. I want to show him. This everything is the struggle of man against man, societies painful, look at itself from the inside out something like their dogs playing pool. I didn't see that. I missed that one. I didn't have enough time dogs playing football. There was no I there was a there was dogs in the pool which was a different that was at the hotel Jamaica into the NFL hall of fame. We did. Yes. And I was telling Dave that this was on at the exact moment that the Khalil Mack story broke. We were at we're in canton. So I took a lot of like really sort of cool cell fees in front of Khalil Mack stuff at the hall of fame. Started scream go bears. They're they're all everybody. There was a bears fan. Really? Yeah. As amazing the amount of players day. I don't know. There's more bears in the hall of fame than any other team mean it actually around the locker. Bust or everywhere. There is a lying to take ten. Was I right. Is that not a great hall of fame? You get to put on shoulder. How could you be wrong could be wrong about this sports maven of Chicago? But I gave Justin a very, yes. Hardy recommendation regarding the pro football hall. I think it's the best hall of fame out there. I agree. I wanna hear what the list of bad hall of fame. That's a that's what I'm interested in. I think the NBA hall of fame. Is there? I didn't even know. I've not well, there's a bad the Basque. That's not been there. I've been hot. Ceilings. Yeah. Was there? A rolling hall of fame bowling on San Luis. And the I've been to the Hockey Hall of fame in Toronto. Which is great baseball hall of fame is wonderful. I just I've been tiddlywinks telephone. I've been there to give you an idea. A very very small. He has he has a couple of things already in. They're like cleats from his year that he wanted defensive player of the year. But they have this red at the end the NFL today it says, and they have a huge video screen and on either side, I mean, huge wall size murals one is Khalil Mack. And the right. And you're like, wow, the raiders jersey lined up in line and the other side Tom Brady, so gives you an idea of where the NFL sees Khalil Mack. As one of their two star. Explain to me. Why Khalil Mack is in hall of fame voter? Doc, you have a great if your defense photography era. They showed they show they they had a bunch of glass cases at the end of stuff that happened in the last couple years like the cleats have someone who scored six touchdowns his bust is not there yellow. He's still. Yeah. But they he was one of the stars at the end like maybe new thing. Maybe put one active player saves time. The Steve just to clarify something from earlier, the one five side a lot of tourists states Wisconsin Minnesota start after Labor Day because teens make up the bulk of the tourist workforce you're talking about school starting after Labor Day or before Labor Day. Yeah. So I don't I don't I don't they start later depending on where you are geographically in relation to the taxes that you collect and long-standing tradition. I love the one five says that it's because of the tourists. The teens working in Minnesota. And I believe Chicago they start today. But. But the outlier though, is that there's a lot of I would see there's a lot of people in the surrounding suburbs that would fit into that texters thought and they started to three weeks ago. Yeah. Yeah. I was traverse city Michigan over the weekend on nice tourist replace. It's far. But the dunes are crazy. Yeah. The sleeping bear is. Unbelievable. I ran up and down the quarter mile hill fifteen twenty dollars. That's why he went, and that's what my thighs started to burn time twenty unit. Roll down. I roll down. Ran Patrick like roll down ran up. Yeah. I'm still finding sand in funny places, but that's a beautiful area. If you ever go just want to warn, you that was the choice that was my choice to go around the lake and end up in traverse city would have been there at the same time, but the America's greatest ice cream places are like ice cream. Who does? A few times. Apparently, good Morning, America. Maybe the today show. One of the two voted this greatest ice cream place in the country. It's a dairy farm. Which produces the ice cream on site. So while you eat the ice cream. You can thank the cows. Can look out upon the cows. How this is fantastic. This is a little farm a little far barn. Shop situation outside of traverse city was anybody. Having cats stand on their hind legs in shooting milk into it like oriented. Oriental is the only guy ever do that. Now. All it must've been barn, boys. Who did that remember juggling? It's like one of those things that you learn remember it was about fifty years before the internet. So you know, what else is? Can't memes before that was exactly a top six at six coming up in just a second a lot of political news. Of course, Cowan capper, Nick. We'll get back with a bunch of at six nineteenth.
