Full court pressure here drag a jewel in bound for Miami. Same two teams on Tuesday. In the same building involved.

And win by six. 1 30 to 1 24 John The Miami Heat step up to the challenge here and give themselves that two game cushion now on the seventh seeded Celtics. Well, that's a 71 point second half for the Boston Celtics. So that probably gives exposed for a little bit of fuel as they head into Tuesday, Right, 26. You know, you gotta play 48 minute game on, and I think Miami should be early, disappointed with the way they played defensively in the second half, letting Boston shoot 54% and get that gets 71 points in that half. On on the other side. Does Boston feel good about? Hey, way proven. We can do this. Jimmy Butler. You started the game partner. Hey. Was terrific.

Will the Boston Bruins Ever Fix Their Power Play?
"Those practices that burns will have, I imagine a large portion, it's going to be devoted to fixing that power play, just because it's been stuck in a rough way for a long time, I think since April 8th, the Bruins have six total power-play goals and four of them have come from Craig Smith. And and another one is kind of stupid crazy. I mean, you can make the case. You like just from the I test that the second unit has looked a lot better than the first for a long, long time now. So they have to do something to to get that first pulp a unit rolling. Whether it's worth switching a Personnel or Bruce Cassidy is always identified troubles with entries as being a thing that's really going to hurt that top power-play unit over the last month. So I think they've got to really kind of fix that and not make it be you know I don't think you want you expect you to jump from where it is right now to all Cynthia not top three unit again right. I don't think you're going to have that whether it's just like it's not the cards at guys on exit game. I'm gonna Torey Krug. Yeah, yeah, exactly. I don't think either you're going into it. Expecting them to cash in on, you know, thirty percent of their chances, but you're still need more than the output. You're getting off. Because I think you know, right now the Bruins is, the deadline are outscoring teams at even-strength 37 to 15, which is crazy. It's crazy that there there's going this many of the 2011 Bruins now, where it's like, wow, they're, you know, they're dissecting teams on even strain for them to hopefully, kills, all the momentum. Pretty much been the case for a month now. So if you even get that power-play back to, you know, 20% over this this long stretch, it goes a whole a long way. Especially in the playoffs, in terms of Just Landing more punches against the opponent's. So I think in terms of x's and o's power plays probably stands out the most to me. Yeah.

Hello in what is definitely as i said earlier the longest from idea to recording a podcast part for good has ever done. We are very excited. Talk about change makers on on pot for good. so let's get the serve. The the basic questions. Out of the way where did the idea for tulsa makers come from tulsa change makers is really the product to to experiences that myself in jake learner cofounder change makers had when we first moved to tulsa through teacher america the first experience just feeling incredibly welcoming we got here just super invested in really connected as leaders right away in the community for me. I moved here from outside of charleston. South carolina originally from outside of boston. Jake from philly across the board to feel really welcomed invested in his leaders. I'm the second experience we had was going into classrooms. Obviously i you're teaching was challenging. But our students were blowing us away. Day my sixth graders. Abell elementary jake's fifth graders tulsa legacy charter school. Students were bright your socially minded leadership skills at rival adults that we knew and became really struck by the juxtaposition between our experiences as outsiders to also in the experiences of bianchi classrooms the insiders and what struck us. The most. Is that for me and jake. As outsiders and newcomers to tulsa we felt like we were being more invested in and more physician leaders in the community. The young people in our classrooms. That are actually better positioned up to drive positive impact in their schools and communities. And so the question. Jake and i started asking ourselves is woke me to position. The young people in our classrooms youngest ten years old and now for us as young as eight years old at your drive positive impact in their schools and communities right now and then in doing so prepared for alleged leadership in the future as well.
"boston" Discussed on Radio Boston
"The parties involved the boston police patrolman's association and boston city councilor and mayoral candidate under a campbell. The exchange began after the boston. Herald reported that campbell was holding up one point two million dollars in police funds in response to the story. The boston police patrolman's association tweeted. They were astonished. Quote given the recent explosion of violence in our city and quote campbell responded that she was still waiting to hear from the b. P p a quote on why they enabled an elevated an accused child molester an quote referring to the former president of the union. Patrick rose who has been charged with molesting multiple children in response the b. p p. a. replied quote people who live in glass houses. End quote should refrain from talking about quote enabling criminals. Now this was widely seen as a veiled reference to campbell's brother. Alvin campbell junior who has been charged with multiple accounts of sexual assault. A number of elected officials have expressed outrage over the boston. Police patrolman associations attack. We reached out several times to them to comment or join us on the show but they did not respond council counselor campbell however joined us earlier today to give us her take on the incident and she began by recalling how she i reacted. I think i continued doing the work. Right there's still a lot more work to do to ensure a police department is the most transparent diverse and accountable in the country. And for me. It's always been about focusing on the work and getting things done on behalf of the residents. We have the honor and privilege of serving. I was disappointed. Of course they would go personal and be unprofessional. But i don't let it get a distract me from doing what's necessary in terms of the work. There was a strong reaction and a number of public officials including several women of color have condemned the boston police. Patrolman's association for that tweet and for other tweets that includes congresswoman. I on a presley. Acting boston mayor kim janey who is your competitor in the mayoral race they pointed to the personal nature which you just referred to of the attack and suggested that it follows a pattern from the boston. Police patrolman's association directed at elected women of color. How do you see it. I agree you know. The tac was definitely personal and unprofessional. But sadly it wasn't shocking because it is a pattern from this particular union to come out with direct attacks directed towards women and electives of color particularly when we disagree and for me. It's really important in this moment. In time that i keep to the issues and that there is tremendous work to do to ensure our department continues to be transparent and more accountable. Which right now. That's not the case and are so many examples whether it's a patrick rose case whether or not an officer participated in the capital insurrection..
Is Krejci Still a Viable Player for the Bruins?
"Krejci is still going to be David krejci this year. He's still going to have to change plan. A forty Fifty Point Pace over a full season still be good. Still dragged along, whoever whatever Wing is he's got, but you have Charlie Coyle. Who's getting paid like a top-six guy, would you expect him to make that jump up? You expect Jackson eager to really crack through and, you know, people who thought he was going to be up like The Calder or what-have-you or at the very least, be a guy that was going to flash a lot of practice that you could see him getting a full-time job. Next year, obviously that has not panned out either a guide for both coil and Sydney, so I think you look at this team and it's subject. Forecast years from now, what to expect from his team. But you look at the way they're playing right now and the piece that they have in place. It's not out of their own possibility to think that if you co-sign crazy and and Hall again and get a lot of these pieces back, you could run it back with the same group for another year or, or to even and still be a pretty viable Contender just the way they're playing off. So I think that's the only option that brings really have at this point is bringing back David krejci. Now granted

It's I don't know how many times we're going to say worst loss ever because it feels like we've said it a lot. It's hard to not bother. It's hard to not tell this the worst loss ever. This is so this Jeff they work. They were atrocious and embarrassment but I don't listen, I don't care that Jayson. Tatum and Kemba Walker didn't play. I do care because I think Jason should have been out there. I don't know how bad the injury is, or whatever, is dealing with public. And it came like this, you gotta be out there. This is what 11/12 games left in the regular season. You needed this win, you could ill afford a loss like this, but even without Tatum and Kemba last name. They were without shade gilgeous-alexander, and they stink, they absolutely stink. They're trying to tank they've got a garbage team other than Lou door and you lost. You had supposedly Dead one of the top 25 players in the NBA in jail and Brad. I thought, Oh, supposedly. And it starts now, you mean using all subjects, you mean you're not lose. That's the supposedly Factor know. It's, it's true. Jeff look. I think they rolled the dice on Tatum thinking we could get away with tonight and still squash out the window. And so we needed to give him a day off. Let's pick the game and they pick this one on the back to back on the front, end of a back-to-back, and it burned him obviously. And I don't think he's, I don't think he's hurt but I mean, I get it doesn't matter.

In the Light of the Tough Season, The Celtics Still Have a Glimmer of Hope
"Think the way that we have seen Kemba Play Over the month of April, and if he can bring that, if he can be 80% of the camera that we have come to expect, I think that that will be huge for this team going forward. And I am also optimistic like Evan said, the absence of Robert Williams has proven to be dead And even bigger issue than I think anyone had could have predicted just in the fact of what he was doing with that starting unit on offense, he was moving the ball and also not allow defense has to pack the paint because you have to draw Robert out of the paint or else you at least have to account for him cuz he will just come in behind you and dunk on your face. So for that it opens up a lot of things offensively and then defensively just to have a guy who can provide that kind of Rim protection and that kind of communication we hear from the assistant coaches. Just how much Rob has improved in communication job defensively. And so I do think that, that is a huge thing that is missing for this team right now. And then you add in the fact that yes, Evan Fournier is coming off a battle with covideo said, he didn't feel well for a 4 to 5 days and still trying to work his way back. I think there are areas to look to for positivity, but I agree with Evan that it's in this season. The fact that they can be so dead. And hide and look like two completely different teams. It's just frustrating and it and it's frustrating because of the expectations that are on this group and regardless of how many games they lose and how fast they come out over and over again, those expectations remain,

"Some of those stories because it is true that you've had entrepreneurs like zuckerberg of facebook or drew house tin and his co founder at dropbox who go west and build their companies there. But i think that. I've lived in silicon valley and i've lived here much longer. Silicon valley is about that commercial success. It is about getting rich. It is about making your other entrepreneur. Friends jealous at how much value created in the stock market. Boston is loves the discovery. And i think loves getting their first and doesn't have that gene that says okay. We got there first and now we are going to wring every last dollar out of it and turn this into a global colossus. Now that said like we. We used to say that. Boston didn't understand how to do. Consumer oriented companies. You can't really say that anymore. We have companies like tripadvisor. We have companies like wayfair. We have companies like draft kings. That have gotten pretty big. And they're national or even international and they're selling stuff to consumer. So i think we're closing that gap a little bit. But i think that our our fundamental dna is different dna than you have in silicon valley. See the thing. I want to pick up is what we've talked about over. The years is a pretty gaping equity hole in boston's innovation. Economy and one of the characteristics of this pandemic is that it has set in relief in so many ways the fundamental inequities in our economy our public health system. It's our education system put the innovation economies experienced during the pandemic in that context for us. There were if you worked in the innovation economy and you read a startup company or a growing tekere biotech or sustainable energy company last year. You wouldn't have known that there was a pandemic on except for the fact that you're having a lot of zoom meetings and you were working at home venture capital funding set a record in massachusetts in twenty twenty and so companies. I would talk to recruiters who were trying to hire software developers. Trying to hire chemists. It was just as hard to hire those people in the midst of the pandemic in twenty twenty as it was a year before pre pandemic so. This is a part of boston that you're right it hasn't it hasn't stumbled it hasn't fallen in a pit because of the pandemic and and yet you know we still were trying to solve. This problem of there are so many people who live in boston. Who can't get these jobs. Who are starting different kinds of small businesses in different kinds of new ventures that the venture capitalists don't put money into and so there is a divided isn't quite the divide of the charles river of boston from cambridge. The way that it used to be. I think a lot of the innovation economy has crept into boston but there are definitely people who are non participants And one of the people that write about in the book. And you got me thinking about. This is dean cayman the inventor. Who's up in manchester new hampshire. He started this amazing nonprofit called i. That's all about getting kids in middle school and high school excited about math and engineering and science through these robotics competitions. We need ten more organizations like that. That are going to kind of create. The pipeline of the next generation of company founders of company builders and employees that that are more diverse and scott. Are you seeing the level of reckoning and coming to the table to make massive changes like we're seeing around public health Around police reform for example other social issues laid bare by the events of the last twelve to fourteen months..

How do you see her focus and her lived experience playing on a practical basis. What current policy issues are going to rise to the top. And how will she lead differently than mayor. Walsh for the last seven years. So i think The issue of education is absolutely an important one. This is going to be about getting young people back in our schools in a safe manner making sure that our teachers are protected and their that they're vaccinated In addition getting as much as we can the facilities ready We know that two thirds of the schools in the city of boston are Built before one thousand nine hundred eighty five.

They don't have ventilation the navy So there's a lot of work there the issue of what's going to happen relative to a school committee whether it'd be elected or not elected early. Education is an issue But i think one of the other issues that is absolutely critical as getting the boston. Economy rolling again What's definitely Starts With many of our restaurants as well as eateries across the city of boston and opening those doors of opportunity. And we certainly this issue of contracting in the city of boston. I want to give props to amplify latin next and other groups who The lawyers for civil rights who have put forward this issue that the city of boston has spent two point one billion dollars in the last seven years and only one point two percent of that have gone to black and latinos that is unacceptable and it has to actually change so i believe that these issues as well as those issues of That many people haven't been able to pay rent in a year What are we gonna do for those folks and also the issue of the recovery community and what's happening along massachusetts avenue and melnea cass boulevard.

I want to ask you though She because something you said before. The show really stood out to me as well as you were describing systemic racism a moment ago. I was thinking of something that was Maybe not at the top of the list. But you mentioned before the program the ban in our state on happy hour which i usually do not include in systemic trouble. But but the point was that you know. Happy hour is a time for networking. And if we had that here in a non pandemic world obviously this might be another opportunity for black people and everyone of course to do some more networking and and it might actually. This is a racial equity argument for happy hour. Yeah the reason. I mentioned it. You know i'm. I'm often talk with people about one. Is boston fun. You know and in. Is it somewhere that really attracts people. And i think sometimes the conversation stops the because people think it's about like people wanna dance more. They want to drink more But it's really a about Creating a some economic activity and we know that particularly as as generations. When you get to millennials are younger. People are choosing where they live and then choosing where they work. And so. if you don't have places that really draw people in in you know if you have a certain level of education and connections and other things at this point you could probably find a good job most places so most cities and it's really about where do i want to create a life. Where do i feel like. I'll have a great social life. I'll have a family of. I want excetera and so i was happy hour. Ps know with with those types of laws. On the books.

Well first of all thank you very much again for having me on and giving me an opportunity to talk about my desire to leave this city and the work that i think i'll bring to the table that i know i'll bring to the table based on my life experience. Boston is my home. And i obviously very deep roots here and in. That connection drives me to work hard every single day as an at large city councilor and as a mayor. I know that i will be able to bring that same drive and desire to serve to that. Will you just mentioned your at large city councilor which means you've needed to appeal to a wide swath of the city in announcing your candidacy the globe boston globe characterized you as quote something of a centrist on a political body that has become increasingly progressive in recent years and quote. Do you agree with that assessment. Is that is that right. Well i've always myself as a lower case p progressive. It's really important to to think big into hope but it's also equally important to exist in reality into understand that there are challenges that our families are facing every single day that our kids are dealing with in our school system. When we think about the work that has left done done. We need to take that practical realist. Approach to the work of the city. And that's what i brought to the table. I was a teacher for thirteen years. I built a small business in the city and to do those things. You have to approach the work from a very realistic perspective. You made your announcement today outside. East boston high school. You just referenced. The fact that you were a teacher for thirteen years certainly the boston public schools is a huge part of this sort of oversight and supervision of the mayor of boston and it's been a tough year with covid nineteen especially in relations between the city the superintendent and teachers. What do you think you bring to the table. As a former teacher that would be unique in the mayor's office now. Certainly no teacher has ever served in the mayor's office of the city and no no teacher has ever led this city and i certainly look forward to using moment of those thirteen years in the classroom to inform my work especially as it relates to education..

We have been sharing the independent restaurant coalitions work to petition their Representatives about this and so when the restaurants act was included in the Heroes Act, we are thrilled because we. Were pretty certain that that was one of the only ways that we were going to. Make it through that and help from landlords and I think that's probably the the. Deal for most restaurants, it's a little bit from the landlord and a little bit from the. Federal Government. So it was. Really disappointing. Yeah.

Hello yes. My it's more of a comment but looking toward the future you just kind of concerned about what the restaurant and food landscape looks like in Boston around the country it just feels like the the chains are going to be able to prevail through this because they have the most money and it just seems like it's just going to homogenize the food landscape. You know just place you go in the United. States just having the same food and you know that that's kind of concerning for me. I I really hope that you know we can preserve sort of our restaurants in our food culture. In Boston it's more of a comment so. Thanks Erica appreciate that. Yeah, and let's turn to both heather and Irene about that talk about what's happening to to use. Eric's words our food culture in Boston during this pandemic and what the tale of that is gonNA look like. When we finally do, for example, have a vaccine. How are you thinking about that? Either of you? I'll take. I. Go ahead. I think in the short term I think Eric's absolutely right I. think chains are going to win out over independent restaurants because they have the bargaining power to come up with better deals with landlords or You know they just have more money to throw at a pivot compared to an independent restaurant I think it's going to proliferate quick serve restaurants, which isn't a bad thing but I think it's going to. Just be a better climate for chains like chipotle. Way. For instance, I think that's more of a short term issue I.

"So late restaurant and like many of my colleagues who are restaurant owners, this is a challenging time and we also had to make a pivot as far as our dining is concerned. We we are in the headquarters of the Boston, school department and with so many administrators working from home our revenue has declined. So what we're doing is leaning more on the takeout concepts and family meals. So folks can come in buy in bulk and take it back home because the design in that we are so accustomed to and so enjoyed for for years has changed tremendously and it's going to be this way for quite some time. Thank you for that call Cheryl. Heather let me give you a chance to react Cheryl there. I think she's right it It seems like we. We know that restaurants are risky behavior in sorry. Indoor dining in restaurants is risky behavior and so to pivot with family meals like she said, and other sorts of takeout or even packaged goods for sale at a farmer's market or collaborations with other local businesses for pickup and drop off sites. It's it. It's kind of a bright spot in this really difficult time all the all the new ideas that are coming from it. One of the things that was intriguing in talking to both of you is your feelings about the safety of in restaurant dining in person dining kind of regardless of where the state is on allowing it you both. Have expressed reservations about that. And it raises questions about responsibilities of patrons, responsibilities of the state responsibilities of the restaurant industry. Do you do you feel disproportionately burdened and having to make these pivoting? Decisions for your businesses when when the state is in a different place on it. Irene maybe you can. You can go first. Yeah I think what's hardest for me not just as a restaurant owner but also as a diner and someone who really loves restaurants is that there's not consistent guidance and so restaurant owners are in the position of trying to decide what is safest for for us and for our teams and for our broader community and you know both my parents were doctors but I'm not an epidemiologist, and so I think one of the things that has been frustrating is the lack of. Leadership at you know at so many levels, and also we understand that that diners are getting really mixed messages about what's Okay and about what they should do and about how they can save the restaurant industry and frankly at this point, you know I think that only only the bailout is going to save our industry or at least.

"The Boston, the Boston Special Education. Boston Special Education Parents Advisory Council here's what she said. This opportunity to be back in school has changed our children just seeing them and Start to open up and just these two days of being in school. It's almost like seen different children. So to that point, those kids are staying in school. As you've mentioned, how is the district squaring that? If it's not safe for other students to return? How are they talking about safety for the students who are staying? Well I. Think it's a matter of like balancing benefits and risks here on their only about thirteen hundred kids back in the building right now those are the kids that can be listed under that high needs category and so you know having that few kids in the building does reduce transmission risk no. The district as a whole is fifty, five, thousand students so. In comparison spread out all of their buildings there's not a lot of people in them at the moment and the mayor, and the superintendent also stressed that they have a lot of faith in how effective you know their new cleaning protocols are and how affected their masks policies are. I noticed to carry that both the mayor and Superintendent Caselli talked about the other kinds of risks for these high needs students that can't be mitigated in the same way that Cova risks can be. So does that seem to be figuring into the Calculus? Yeah I really think. So I mean you know one thing that was talked a lot about the press conference was just you know the the risk of regressing especially when you know their skills that students have been working on for a really long time and a lot of a lot of the high needs students need you know pretty significant wraparound services that's that's really hard for an individual parent or even individual family to have the skills to be able to do effectively and so that that was definitely part of the Calculus..

That's one eight, hundred, four to three talk where you can send us a tweet at radio, Boston. Commissioner Bashar let me start with you. Can you give us a sense? How many more rat complaints are you getting this year compared to years past? So number our numbers percentage wise. We're up considerably at one point probably about thirty percents interesting knows not reflect a number of things not the least of which is folks are calling in the same complaint, multiple times and That just gives us an indication that there is a serious problem or an infestation, and it's certainly something we want to address immediately. Flynn I noticed in issue you've been working a lot on you called for a public hearing recently what are you hearing from your constituents? Hearing a lot of similar concerns that Leo mentioned but concerns had rats and nicer running throughout many neighborhoods. In Boston, a lot of the restaurants have closed or closing. So there's no food supply for them. So to going through a lot of the garbage bag set left on the sidewalk in the street. So it it is a significant problem. It's a quality of life issue. It's a public health issue. Let's dig into that a little bit in terms of public health issue Obviously nobody likes seeing rats running around the streets or. Comfortable in your house But can we talk a little bit about what is the actual health issue that this presents people? Well. One of the one of the one of the points is obviously rats can do carry disease rat to human transmission is not something that's very common. But if there's a proliferation of rat urine feces, it certainly caused concern. So it's obviously within everybody's best interest particularly US as a as a municipality to try and eliminate the food sources and eliminate the number of rodents on the street. All the rats need a food and water. They don't need anything extravagant that does not spring water doesn't have to be filet Mignon Um, you know any type of food refuse.

A virtual marathon it really doesn't cut it to to give an equal experience for the sacrificing in training and and fundraising a lot of these folks did. Really felt like there are other options to give its runners. If you're a registered for the Boston marathon this year, you got a refund for your entry fee but your only option to run was to do this virtual race which we've been talking about New York on the other hand he's Yana did allow registered rudders to defer their entry to one of I think the next three years.

One of them, of course, is the Boston Marathon for the first time in its more than one hundred, twenty year history no one ran the Boston marathon on marathon. It's just not safe to combine thirty thousand runners and a million spectators during pandemic but just because we didn't have the big race in April, doesn't mean the marathon isn't happening at all.

Well, as you said, thirty thousand runners usually run the marathon every April it was supposed to be the one, hundred, twenty, four this year back in March officials said, maybe we can have the marathon in September but then in May, they said it's just not going to. Be Possible to do it. So the Boston Athletic Association wanted to give the runners. The folks that were registered run this year something that would come close to the experience of actually running the marathon Patriot's day something that would mean all their training and hard work wouldn't go to waste. So they set up this virtual marathon. Here's Boston Athletic Association? CEO Tom Grill Normally the world comes to Boston this year that can't happen. So we want to do everything.

"We've not requested any data from that. We don't know whether they actually compile data from those overtime slips. Summarize what you're saying because there is a four hour minimum for overtime this. You're suggesting that you're hearing from the courts that there is a structural incentive for officers to bring evidence over physically while off duty that might otherwise come in electrically in order to get that. Few minutes turned into a four hour overtime payment. Am I understanding you correctly? And do we have any sense of whether? This is happening five times a year or five thousand times a year. What do we know about how ordinary or frequent this is? All just anecdotal, but you know what basically what we heard. Is that that you know? There are very few instances in which evidence needs to be physically conveyed to accord house and and again like in other cities and towns across Massachusetts it's not you know it's. It's always hand electrically and outside of body camera footage they. These defense attorneys have told us that you know pretty much. Everything is being brought over physically by a police officer. Do. You have a formal response to your story from either the Police Department or the city. Well for reporter Catherine, mcglaughlin aft- the. The police. Department you know sort of for an explanation of this and the starts. If you boil the spokesperson for the Boston Police. Department said that. Each case is different than unique and can depend on district. Attorney's handling the case or requesting the evidence, so he didn't really give a clear reason for why something like a transcript of a nine one one call needs to be printed out and carried over versus why? Versus sent over electronically. Now the current police contract with the union expired June thirtieth, so it's in renegotiations. We do know that there's been some mentioned in the Boston City Council of concern over this four hour minimum. Do you know if there is pressure change that four hour minimum in the new police contract, and have you heard anything from advocates about the police contract in response to your story. What we what we heard in a city council hearing last week was councilor. Andrea Campbell was complaining that you know there's no transparency in the negotiations she she specifically said she would like to know whether. The Walsh Administration is negotiating willing to negotiate over that for our minimum for overtime. And you know the I think the Walsh. Administration has been fairly consistent in saying that the negotiations are private. Which is so? Council thirty! Yeah, do you have a read on the mayor's openness or willingness to renegotiate things like over time in the new police contractor? We know what's on the table there. We don't neither city council When the when the mayor promised to cut twelve million dollars out of the the the overtime budget. You know some of the counselors thought it was. It was symbolic because you know when the when the when officers work overtime. They're entitled to their overtime pay. If you cut the budget, they'll just overspend. The budget and the city is is required to to to fund the but funded over time. You know whatever whatever the dollar amount is. They consistently overspend overtime budget so. That twelve million dollar cut seems like it was largely symbolic. Just to the last overtime budget was sixty point, eight million dollars, but expenditures, overtime or closer to seventy million dollars. Yabu before we let you go I. Do want to shift gears a little because there's actually another interesting wrinkle to this story. I saw your tweet when you tweeted on Monday. That while you were outside.
