It took Charlie twenty minutes to get there to the school when he arrived. He walked into the principal's offices. Had Hello Net. What seems to be the problem here. Dave was sitting on the chair in the corner of the office. Where you sat when you're in trouble. And when his father walked in the first thing he saw was charlie head of fish head tied his belt. Lope father really do that. Yup said Dave. You really did. Then what happened? I don't know said David. He took me home. I think her fishing he might have taken me fishing. You don't remember. I do remember that. He put his hand on my shoulders. We walked out to the principal's office that made me feel good. Dave and SAM. We're coming up on the corner of the last Big Hill. Almost home. Neither said anything for a while. And then as they turned into Margaret Yard. Sam said that was a cool thing for him to do. It sounds like he was a good dad. Dave said that's what I said and then Dave said I think I still have. The fish at Sam shook his head. Sam said so weird. They found the fish head before they went to bed. In a box at the back of Dave's old covered with a bunch of stuff like that a little cast iron cannon set a hockey card some marbles it was leather in golden as if it had been smoked piece of green yarns still tied to the top. Sam was sitting on the bed holding it. He said it doesn't smell thought it would smell. They were both sleeping. Dave's old bedroom and Sam was already in his pajamas. Dave was getting ready. Sam said can I have it? He was sitting on the bed near the window turning the fish head around in his Hands Day said. I always kind of liked that. It was here if I give it to you. Would you leave it here take it home? Sam said I'd take it home. Dave said what would you do with? Sam said. I'd wear to school on my belt? Like Dave said why Samson because when I have a kid I'd give it to him and tell them the story and he'll to school and then it'll be a family tradition. I think GRANDPA would like that. Dave laughed. Yes he said. I think he would like that very much. And then he turned and stared out the bedroom window. His breath fogging the glass with the trees. Still not in bud. He could see right over the house where his uncle used to live? And all the way down to the roofs of the storefronts on Railroad Street far away the steeple of the United Church at one end tallest building in town. The clock tower on the town hall at the other. All these little moments he thought who knows which ones are going to count and which ones will be forgotten. It's never the things you think. It isn't a fishing trip or even fish. The fish head. It's the small. Never the fire and the smoke is Wiley wispy and the smell of it gets in your hair and your clothes and no matter how much you try to duck around the flames. The wind always change. Is it always gets in your eyes. What's the matter said Sam? Are you crying just a little today? But it's okay. It's not unhappy cry. It happens when I come here. Sometimes it's like there's a big fire here from me and sometimes when I get close to what the smoke gets in my eyes. He turned away from the window and sat down on his bed beside his son tomorrow. He said we'll help grandma with the garden and then before supper we'll go out to the graveyard. Show your grandfather's grave. Can I bring this? He was holding the fish at joy to hear him again on. Cbc Radio the late Stuart McLean and fish head from the Vinyl cafe. Maybe I have no power over anything. Maybe place more vinyl cafe in the weeks to come who knows how long this will go. But we'll see it's always nice to hear comforting voice and that voice mclane is one of those voices coming up on the program. I'm going to speak with the advice. Columnist Amy Dickinson. You may know her by her pen. Name ask amy the beauty of the advice. Column and of course. It's an incredibly old John Right. It goes back to like the Campfire and the elder dispensing advice. But it's also a really old printed genre. The agony aunt goes way way back. What's beautiful about it? Especially in the old days. I guess it was a one way street. You know people write in and you know the they bury the lead. They leave out a lot of details but it's totally their point of view about what's going on with them and I made a really crucial decision at the outset. When I decided not to rewrite the letters and I will shorten and trunk eight the letters a little bit but I never ever ever rewrite anything the richness of the voices and stories. And whether it's somebody who is like totally kidding himself like my son one stop being gay really you know that guy actually wrote that to me and ATT UP. Ma'am you know so. There isn't a lot of. It's really not a two way street. And that's the beauty of it. That's the advice columnist. Amy Dickinson. She misses getting questions. That have nothing to do with covert nineteen. So we'll ask amy a few questions that's coming up in about half an hour also on the way a love story. One that spans borders which is pretty complicated in this era of physical distancing. The hear about a couple that was trying to make it work across a line. That's coming up. I'm Ed Galloway. This is an extended edition of the current on. Cbc Radio One. We're back in ninety seconds.

"Thought of training going on today. I'm used Eric along with my father in Cohen refill who sits to my left, guys. We have another pack show, but I wanted to get listeners updated on something that we've talked about the last two weeks. We remember I'll probably been three weeks ago. Now Amy Dickinson. She took over for Ann Landers today. A syndicated columnists, who is an advice person, you write in, you know what for us with my salad because you right? So bring everyone up to speed about. Two three weeks ago, person wrote in under the tiding title dumb founded father, their words, not ours. And said that he lives with his twenty four year old daughter, who he just discovered owns a firearm and not just anyone is the kind, the criminals use a forty caliber hollow point to be concerned. He will you know what in the column? It says he locked his bedroom door at night. He done his daughter. So Amy dear Amy. He writes, into her, which, you know, take. Advice these days. But right into her, and you would think he would set him straight and say, well, you know what? That's her. Right. Or whatever. But no, she cheat. Doubles down and says, oh my God is she into some type of stuff that you don't know about, and, you know, where would he gets up in like that? Alluding to the fact like you just found a bag of method bad, right? So and then she goes on to say and she has hope points, those are legal in twelve states or eleven state in no they explode. So, she's totally off base in her in her comment. And she fields, the wrath nationwide. Just goes in papers all across the country, she feels director of people who are pro gun or people who know firearms. So like we often do I reached out to her, and I said the me, I said, look, we're an expert in this field. I love to bring you on the show. Let's talk about it. You sound like a, you know, a civil adult person. Let's have a good conversation about. This. She responded, which I thought, okay, that's a start. She responded and said, you know what I appreciate your offer. I think you and your father and the crew would do a good interview and be fair. But I'm going to politely decline said, okay, I could get that. I went on I responded back and I said, look, if you want to correct your ears or, or educate yourself, we're here for you to respond back and said, you know what I'm gonna take you up on it. And can I call you. So we talked to her there's been about ten days ago now. And the premise was, she was going to put a retraction out there a correction to the things that she said wrong, not that she's now a sudden a pro gun person, but she was going to correct the things in the document that was wrong. So we helped with that in here was her correction. She says, I recently ran a question from dumfounded father in my column. The man had twenty four year old daughter who was living with him. She had recently disclosed that she possessed, a forty caliber semiautomatic. Firearm in my response, I incorrectly stated that hollow point bullets. Explode, I also stated this amunition is illegal in eleven states. I take responsibility for this air and apologize to readers who are misinformed, confused, or furious about it. I reached out to Eric Delray second-generation law enforcement officer and owner with his father of LAPD firearms ranging training, and Columbus who patiently describe the characteristics of hollow point bullets. She did good say plumbing, you can see in her tone with the rest of it that she's not a big gun person. But that's okay. She we reached out we had a good dialogue. I here's what's interesting. So the initial column went all over the country, if you Google it, you can see it in the Washington Post, and the Chicago Tribune and everything else. So she put this response out there. And guess how many papers picked it up JC probably all of them, they would assume I would assume. The. Gated zero found any evidence that has been picked up by anyone. Well, isn't that interesting isn't it interesting? She puts it out there with some misinformation and maybe no fault of hers. I don't know who does research, then we, then she's open to, to getting straightened out. She puts it out where on her personal website. Put it on our personal, face on her personal Facebook page in her web center website and who picks it up. No one liberal, the media takes opportunity to say, why not gave out this stuff? Well, let's put everything bad and nothing. Good. You never see anyone defending yourself. We talked about over a million times himself with a handgun to save himself. You never see that in papers. So, so here's the last piece of this, on her Facebook page, there were people commenting and most of them, you could tell weren't big on firearms go, so I decided to comment on her Facebook page, I I did it politely. I gave her a kudos for reaching out to us. Gives zoo, what I wrote all fact, all fact based, right? I put high me though, we may have our differences on a roll of a firearm, that on the ROY firearm to play in society today. We both agree in went to see an into gun violence than we are both in fabric about keeping firearms out of the hands of criminals, statements right from there. We should be able to find common ground impacting change without impeding, the rights of the overwhelmingly majority of individuals who are safe responsible firearms owners often in our radio show. We compare firearms the firearms debate to the countless individuals who die in traffic crashes each year, due to excessive speed or alcohol all our tragic losses of life. Ironically, though, both average about ten thousand unnecessary deaths per year, which is very close to the ten thousand murders a year by firearms is all FBI crime reports stats should we call for more regulations on vehicles. And they're. Ability to go above the speed limit. Are we not producing cars that are made a break the laws of society? What are we doing a similar argument could be made for alcohol in the direct link to the devastation? It causes families each year. The simple fact is that in all these cases, the overwhelming majority of people who own vehicles, capable of going above the speed limit and who consume alcohol do so in a safe responsible manner. So how do we impact change for gun violence, without infringing upon the rights of those responsible firearms owners how about banning the assault weapon? We're led to believe that these firearms are ominous in our weapons meant for the battlefield watching the nightly news or listen to politicians, these days, do the viewers realize that these have been available to the general public since the sixties and the AR fifteen was actually sold to civilians before the military viewers realize that even if you were extremely liberal in your definition of a fictional term assault weapon, those firearms account for only an average of three hundred and thirty three deaths a year out of the close to ten thousand firearms death, the year three hundred and thirty, and that's a ten years average base from the FBI stats again and that same time period, the average number of deaths by knives over sixteen hundred and then. This, my favorite, we averaged seven hundred and fifteen year by hands fists and feet. Wait. More people die in bar fights and by hands fists and feet than the horrible assault. Weapons are the three hundred thirty three deaths by rifles tragic and horrible. Absolutely there. They shouldn't be marginalized. But you, you, you have to look at it as a whole, if I'm a businessman looking to impact change. That is not where I'm going to put my focus on. That is why safe responsible. Firearm owners are so defensive when it comes to this social problem, we've own LAPD for seven years now in my father, and I have decades of law enforcement experience. We've arrested numerous felons here in our store with with firearms. We've stopped a gun, trafficking ring recently, and we've been a crucial part of an arrest of a terrorist who is training here. But how many times have we been asked our opinion? And our thoughts on how to stem the gun violence zero. Zero zero zippo, the bottom line, is that if society that society isn't they don't wanna fix the problem. We don't wanna fix it. Maybe we haven't been hurt bad enough yet. But honestly, we're not serious about stopping the threat the violence continues, the Rediker, rhetoric and the media continues, the politicians, speaking falsehood continue. So the first step as is to, to reach out and had this dialogue but. It's incredible. I don't think Eric you're going to change the talking points of the liberals. They don't want, they don't want those. Yeah. They don't want the facts. And so we wrote this on her Facebook page, if you go out there today, everyone who commented on this, there were multiple comments, and it would I mean, it, it's just gone on on and on take a guess, how many comments or any, any reaction whatsoever to this fact base well-thought-out piece was on there. I bet you zippo zero nothing to say, in this up, you know, when when faced with the fact, so it's, it's crazy. And it's just a sign of our times. And we just happened to be in the middle of this one, but it's, but it's a really tragic sign of our times when you can when you can sit here and talk day in and day out about the facts and then continue to hear all this rhetoric and miss information. They don't care about the JC here. Here is going to make your skin crawl as well. Well, we are the owners of LAPD farms range in training facility interactive law enforcement. But for one hour on Saturdays we put.

"Of nature boys named Jack Benny. Yeah, listen to the radio, and then we got a TV in nineteen forty eight and. Seven. And I mean, other kids had them other families had them night. Around in the neighborhood, but we didn't get our foot forty eight. But then I started watching, how do you do to end things like that. But I guess I've listened to less radio after them void. Blunt junior? Yep. What was senior? Like? He was a pillar of the community in Decatur Georgia. He was. He started out poor, but he worked his way up and he was a chairman eventually of the Decatur federal savings and loan back when it was like it's a wonderful life. He was the big big pillar of the Methodist church, and he was camera the board of education when the integrated the schools knuckle. He was a firebrand or anything, but they figured if my daddy was behind that, it had to be okay, and he was a fine man, but he was such a pillar of the community that I felt like outta go to some other community needs to be a pillar elsewhere. Yeah, I need a needed to have a little more space. So I went up to eventually to New York and. Which is at what my my high school in exchange for gave me a bunch of New Yorkers to read. And and aside, I want to go to New York and eventually I did and I wrote the New Yorker a little bit, but I realized that really came more out of a different tradition. Although I learned a lot from those riders, I realized I was more oral and and like to make animal noises which don't really fit into the New Yorker, but I did write for it. So I hear some. I don't think I've heard them animal Animal noises ordinance. I don't just do as animal noises. I mean this when they come up when I'm describing a dog or an elephant, I used to do a great camel after going on a camel safari, but I blew out my upper egistered doing it it.

And so in mind, you know, you'll see names like lied and and Taft, and but you'll also see names like Bobby Kennedy and Paul Wellstone really gives you a sense of sort of the sweep of history that you're part of not supposed to do that.

I didn't wanna come onto strong and Bruno had called me, and I, for the first time in my life was trying to play it. Cool. And so I remember. Running this past them like you. I'm just going to wait a few days to call him back and ROY blunt bless his heart. He said, Amy, you call him back like he's like, come on, don't play that game. ROY was really telling me to go for it and I did. I did. That's Amy Dickinson. After the break, I talked to ROY, blunt junior, the old southern boy himself. Word by word a will. Yes. Then? Yeah, I still feel a little bit like a boy sometimes would I play with the cat..

"What is the topic? Do quit your day job. All right. We pay our panelists untold amounts of money to be on our show, but strangely, they do have other jobs. Thomas, you know, does radio ads for motel six Peter gross. Does ads himself for sonic burgers, Amy of courses, the Amy behind the ask, Amy. The advice column. Well, this very week, one mistake that they made one of the made in their day job made the news. We're going to ask each of our panelists to tell the story on themselves, but only one of them is telling the truth, your job, pick the panelist, who in fact made a boo, boo in their other gig as an advice columnist. I spent a lot of time reading through psychology journals to ensure that I give the most up to date advice. But this week I got a letter that made me wish I'd spent more time on Netflix. It came from a guy who called himself devastated. He said he knew his girlfriend was cheating on him. She had also falsely accused him of hitting her. He described the whole mess. Quote, it's tearing the apart. Iran is letter in my column, and I gave him pretty good advice. I thought turns out I was pranked by someone to. Bribing the basic plot to the cult movie. The room. I'm movie famous for being the worst movie ever made at about ten thousand people have enjoyed letting me know that I got rolled like a commentator on the club website who wrote you'd think with Oliver appearances and wait. Wait, don't tell me she'd be hip to the joke. I'm looking forward to it blowing over though, so I can get back to helping real people like that girl who can't pick between her vampire boyfriend and her best friend. The wear will. I'm looking forward to that. It was so humiliating. And it was very, very funny and they were nice about it in that they asked me, I think in advance like they ran a pass me like, hey, we're thinking about doing this. Are you with it? And what am I going to say? You know, like no, because the thing was still flying around still fresh. It was still too soon. So I know it will always be too soon for that story. What is your favorite? Wait, wait, don't tell me memory will the most indelible one for me is when I was single Peter to Sehgal decided to fix me up with somebody he knew who was going to be in the audience that night. So this was a blind date with a guy who was going to be in the audience is very high octane experience for for for me like I had just agreed to this without asking him. Any questions like such was my needy status has died. So Peter came back in the green room before the show. What's the guy's name? He told me, I said, what does he look like? And of course, all the panelists were back there. It was Adam and MO. And Peter said, basically, will he's hide appropriate. And I was like, what does that mean? And mow was like, oh my God. He's really sure because I'm quite sure. But of course, Peter is sure. Yes. So he's like, he's height appropriate then. Okay. Well, what's it look like? Well, he's bald. He actually sounded like he looked a lot like Peter. So as Peter was telling me, what am I going to say? Like? I'm not attracted to that. Like I was like, oh, it sounds great. You guys stop it like Adam MO were like, this is not good ditch, you know? So during the show and writes something on a piece of paper and he slides at very discreetly over to me, I read it and it says, I see him. He's five people over from the left hand. I'll. So of course, I count seats as were doing the show and like counting one two. And I took the fifth seat and it's like an eight year old kid. Like his, he didn't even touch the ground. And that was honestly, I just had to stop and pee my pants about that. That was the funniest most wonderful moment for me that of course, the audience would never ever see. That was really, really fun. Yeah. All right. So was the date in how tall or short was this guy? Okay. So we all go out afterward. He comes with us and what I realized was very nice guy, real funny, but he wasn't interested in me at all..

"I'm in my friends closet and currently trying on all of her lipsticks when she's not hiding in friends closets, Amy is the advice columnist for the Chicago Tribune and a longtime, wait, wait panelist. She got her start being funny when she was growing up on a dairy farm in upstate New York. I come from a very funny family, not like praying. We don't do pranks. We don't do practical jokes, but there's a lot of, I guess you could call it. What is it? Why? When you haven't read enough books or just funny, just people we wait. How many women did you grow up around and girls? My mother was one of four sisters and we all lived in Saint town, and I have two sisters and lots and lots of female cousins. So really. Really women exclusive. So what I love about that is is, is that you were raised among funny women, it's shaped you? Absolutely. And actually, the downside is that is that had a a little bit of a disadvantage childhood in some very normal ways. And I think that I watched my mother sort of her way through poverty and divorced and some really, really hard time. So she just dealt with that by. She was very funny about her situation always. But at some point I think it's okay to take yourself seriously. Everybody knows your day job is being asked Amy in the asking me, call him for the Chicago Tribune. Wasn't there a time when something about your column was mentioned in a bluff? Oh my God. This was like when all of my world's collapsed upon themselves and and I emerged like a collapsed star like this dark piece of carbon. What happened was not that long ago, I got punked really well in my column ag-. I wrote into me with a question that involved him and his roommate and a love triangle with a girl and and the the line at the end of his letter was Amy, what can I do? This is tearing me apart. And what I didn't realize until later was that he had really written the basic plotline of the room. And included like enough details that if you knew the movie the room, you would know instantly and this movie. I've never seen it, but it's like notorious for being arguably the worst movie ever made. Right, right. Why is please talk to me please? You're part of my life. Everything could not go on without you, Lisa. You're scaring me. You are lying near the hit you. You are telling me apart, Lisa and guess who loves the worst movie that was never made like all the Bros. all the smart, Alex, all the talk radio like sports guys and it just blew up and like this punked letter to me went viral. And that week I was scheduled to be on, wait, wait, and on Thursday morning they let me know that my story was defeat the Bill right now for the wait. Wait, don't tell me bluffed the listener game call one triple eight. Wait, wait, Larry, I'm in the air Bill..

"Don't even know that he was trying to be funny. It's just in the moment when all of that was still somewhat raw. The idea that I had my one area of expertise, you know happen to be with the courtroom, looked like it was the elephant in the room and we could not stop laughing. It was a release of so much that it was just great. I'm trying to think if there was another. Let me think now. Oh, I know one. We were one time lucky enough to get to perform. Wait. We don't tell me at red rocks in. Colorado and that's like an eighty five hundred seat amphitheater. And we walk out like before the audience came in, you know, we walk out and look at this just I mean, stunningly, beautiful setting to begin with and and then afterwards I happen to be in the middle of yet. Another experiment from my book. I didn't experiment where tried to hug everyone that I met at a modify it slightly when I realized that that might actually frightened people. But at at that particular way, way taping after the show's over, we were supposed to rush back in and not talk to the eighty five hundred crowd. That was, you know that had just seen the taping of the show, but I don't know if somebody called to me, and so I walked out to the front of the stage and I ended up standing in front of the stage and people can talk to me. And I would say to each one, I would say. Can I give you a hug? And sometimes they would. They would hug me before it even asked the words. And I think I hugged a hundred people under the beautiful moonlit starry sky of red rocks after performing, wait, wait, don't tell me and the following day on Twitter, I saw or somebody put Paula Poundstone, hugged everyone in line at wait. Wait, don't tell me last night. I hoped it wasn't some sort of CDC warning. But it struck me as just a wonderful, wonderful night, Paula, Poundstone. Thank you so much. Thanks faith. And that I need not tell you was Paula Poundstone next time on. Wait, wait naked and ashamed, ROY blunt junior tells us what he'd like on his tombstone. I I won't won't get. get. He was human, but he coved it until an Amy Dickinson talks to us from a closet. I'm in my friends closet and. Firmly trying on all of her rip sticks. I'm faith Sailly. See you next time..
