"App. Federal Judge Merrick Garland is president Biden's nominee to become attorney general. He testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee today. The hearing lasted most of the day We begin with committee chair Dick Durbin of Illinois. This hearing will come to order today. The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to be the 86th attorney general of the United States. Judge Garland I wanna welcome you and your family. I want to welcome you back to the Senate Judiciary Committee. I know this return trip. It's been a long time and planning on you're here. Finally, this will be the Judiciary Committee's first hearing of the 117th Congress. Before I turned to my opening remarks. I'd like to just take a few minutes to make some Acknowledgments. I want to welcome my friend, Senator Chuck Grassley as the committee's ranking member. When I first came on the Senate Judiciary Committee 24 years ago, I was the ranking member on subcommittee with you, and we dealt with the issue of bankruptcy. Now Illinois and Iowa sit next to each other. And so did Urban Grassley. We have our differences. But Senator Grassley and I have worked together on important legislation over the years, most recently on criminal justice and sensing reform. I look forward to continuing that work in this Congress. I want to recognize the outgoing chair and ranking member Senator Lindsey Graham, who will join us remotely this morning, and Senator Dianne Feinstein. Senator Graham, as is true of Senator Grassley. Well, we don't always agree, has always been a welcome partner on many issues. Including one of the most challenging issues, immigration, Senator Feinstein. I want to come in for leading the committee Democrats with Grace and resolved over the past four years. I know she will continue to be an important voice on this committee on a host of issues, including in her new capacity as the chair of the Human Rights and Laws subcommittee, which I was proud to charity and past Congresses. I also want to welcome our new committee members who either be here in person. I see one in person and one probably remote senators Padilla And also on the Democratic side, Senator Cotton on the Republican side. I look forward to working with each of you. There's some historic first in the Judiciary Committee this year, Senator Padilla, our new senator from California, will be chairing the subcommittee on immigration, citizenship. Border safety. I'm honored that he's the first Latino senator to chair that subcommittee, and we look forward to his leadership. Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey will chair the subcommittee on criminal justice and counter terrorism. He's the first Black senator to chair a judiciary subcommittee. And we could not imagine a better choice at the helm of this particular subcommittee to all of our other members who are returning to serve on the committee. Welcome back. I want to thank all the committee members for agreeing to hold this committee hearing and vote on Judge Garland's nomination. It is a great honor to serve on this committee. The Senate established the Judiciary Committee by resolution on December 10th 18 16, making it among the very first standing committees of the Senate. This committee has seen many consequential debates and approved many important nominations and landmark legislation in the committee's history. There has only been one prior Illinois senator to serve his chair Judge Garland Lyman. Trumbull, who led the committee from 18 61 to 18 72, and during his term of service was a Democrat, a Republican, a radical Republican and a Democrat. Again. He was the most bipartisan senator, you could imagine His tenure was also distinguished by passage. Of historic legislation, the 13th 14th and 15th amendments to the Constitution. The Freedman's bureau acts of 18 65 and 18 66 Civil Rights Act of 18 66. The last of these was introduced by Trumbull ultimately became the nation's first civil rights law. As chair, Trumbull saw a nation torn apart by original sin slavery and widespread violence and injustice that continued even after the 13th amendments. Passage is African Americans throughout the nation face race. System. Our nation is still dealing with the consequences of these injustices. People of color face systemic racism, and we're still working to rid this nation of the horrific legacy of slavery and Jim Crow. This committee could make a difference. We have the jurisdiction and the opportunity to do it through legislation, oversight and nominations, including this nomination of Merrick Garland to service our nation's next attorney general. There have been few moments in history where the role of attorney general and the occupant of That post It mattered more Judge Garland should you be confirmed, and I have every confidence you will be. You'll oversee a Justice Department at an existential moment. After four tumultuous years of intrigue, controversy and brute political force, the future of the department is clearly in the hands of the next attorney general Under attorney general Sessions and successor Bill Bar. The Justice Department literally became an arm of the White House committed to advancing the interest. The President Trump his family and his political allies. It came as little surprise then that the U. S Department of Justice became the Trump Department of Justice General Bar stated clearly that he believed the attorney general was the president's lawyer, not the nations. And what were the results too many in the department's senior roles cast aside the rules law trump appointees in the apartment sidelined career public servants from Lyon attorneys, two FBI agents Limited their roles disregarded their nonpartisan input override, overriding their professional judgment and falsely accusing them of being members of the

The space command runs the military's satellite-based navigation communication and missile warning systems and differs from new. Us space force launched in two thousand nineteen as a separate military
The Lucas Bros, Using Humor 'To Shake Folk Woke'
"Kenny and Keith Lucas are stand up comedians and identical twins. People don't have to react when I see twins. No. Okay, they go crazy like we were in the supermarket looking for some Jell O. Yeah. And we're just about to pick it out. And then some dude came out of nowhere. It was like, you know, you guys have a stick of Doublemint gum. That's from their 2017. Netflix special Lucas brothers were having a moment right now they're writing and starring in a remake of Revenge of the Nerds, But they also wrote the story for the new movie Judas and the Black Messiah. The film premieres today in theaters and on HBO. Max NPR's Elizabeth Blair has this profile. The Lucas brothers are best known for a kind of stoner humor. And here's a rule of thumb You should never do. Shrooms wouldn't do Who looks like you, man. I'm telling you. But underneath the jokes, there's a serious side that draws heavily on their childhood in the housing projects of Newark, New Jersey, called the Garden spires is you always, you know, broken elevators infested with rats and rotten Drug dealing violence everywhere, But you know, there's a community that is people that there's families is my family When they were six years old there, Dad went to prison. My father actually is out of prison. He's not in prison anymore, and it sucks that he's out. I wish he was still there. Oh, yeah. I wanted to go back because all he wants to do is father's sight. Don't like do we pay rent? Now it's over. The Lucas Brothers connection to Newark got the attention of New Jersey Senator Cory Booker in 1999, then a Newark City councilman, Booker went on a hunger strike in front of the Garden spires. He also served as the city's mayor. Here's Booker talking to the Lucas brothers on his instagram. I love your insightful, hard hitting humor and the sort of the Eddie Murphy and S O. My great heroes Coming up, you know, were uncompromising how they used humor to shake folks woke like book arm. Keith and Kenny Lucas went to law school and why you and Duke, But unlike Booker, they dropped out. It was weird Tonto Study law and and kind of be poor and black because it's like, Oh, I see what The consequences of policy and law are like on a daily basis, and especially when it in relation to African Americans and the notion of criminality and how it's projected onto blacks and I see that process. I found myself sort of disengaged very early. I always said, you know what I want to do something that has a direct impact on people. From an emotional standpoint, Judas and the Black Messiah is very emotional. Lucas brothers were in college when they first learned about Fred Hampton, the charismatic leader of the Illinois Black Panther Party in the 19 sixties in the movie he's played by Daniel Cholula, Mother Liberating You can't Murder Liberation is another revolutionary, but you can't murder a revolution for murder Freedom fighter, but you get amount of freedom. He's the Black Messiah. Judas is William O'Neal, an African American who was arrested for interstate car theft and Impersonating a federal officer in the movie. We see how the FBI recruited O'Neill to avoid jail time and earn some money. He was instructed to infiltrate the Black Panther Party. And provide the FBI with information about Hampton O'Neill is played by like Keith Stanfield Target You Like some good information, some nobody else No. Is it some kind of bonuses? I'm I'm counting on it. Bill O'Neill became so much of a Panther insider. He was put in charge of security. He provided the FBI with a floor plan of Hampton's apartment in 1969. The Chicago police raided the apartment and killed two Black Panther leaders, including Hampton for the Lucas Brothers. It was essential to tell the story of how the FBI recruited informants in the black community. I think it's important to see just how insidious The system has been in turning young African Americans against one another. Now they Essentially used poor black people against poor black people to execute their goals of minimizing the threat of black messiah is like we just felt it was important to see both sides of the coin. Whether it's a historical drama or its stand up comedy for the Lucas Brothers. It all comes from the same source in a big thing about our act is that we we always try to ground it and stuff that we've gone through, and it's always been Important for us to talk about these systemic issues and a variety of ways. Now they're writing and will star in Seth McFarland reimagining of 1980 four's Revenge of the Nerds Practice a bunch after school. They called US nerds. So one cool. The Lucas brothers promise that their movie will be almost nothing like the original because times have changed. It's like the juxtaposition of being a bully and a nerd is so different from what it was like in the eighties, where you had this one, a stark dichotomy between what it was bullying what it was to be a nerd. Now that's been fused together, and I think That's why the time is right to make a story about that. The Lucas brothers say it's hard to watch the original revenge of the nerds. Even though the movie was a childhood staple. They're excited to give it an update and to make it personal. Elizabeth Blair. NPR news
A New Study Says Money Really Can Buy Happiness? Not Exactly, Says the Author
"So alison what's up. Well bro as the old adage goes. Money can't buy happiness. I mean just look. At the twenty. Ten princeton study by economist angus deaton and psychologist daniel. Carlson they found that happiness goes up. The more you make put it plateaus once you get to about seventy five thousand in income doesn't matter how much you're gonna make after that. Your happiness just really doesn't improve that much the red pepper takeaways from this. Dare i say landmark. Study one being that once you have the basic necessities in life more doesn't make you much happier and the other takeaway being that the wealthier you are the more you compare yourself to the joneses and are ultimately left jealous and wanting to keep up. I mean look at richard corey. He owned one half of this whole town but was he happy. No now don't you feel better. So enjoy working in his factory but then warns matthew killingsworth had to come along with his study justice last month and restore that feeling of glueck schmierer's the germans have a word for feeling bad about the good fortune of others. Killingsworth collected one point seven million data points from more than thirty three thousand participants who provided in the moment snapshots of their feelings during daily life. So essentially it was an app it would ping them throughout the day and ask them. How are you feeling right now. And this measured what's called experienced wellness. He also asked people generally how happy they thought they were their overall happiness and apparently that's called evaluative being anyway. So what did he find. Did he confirm that. Once you look at people with income over seventy five thousand dollars happiness plateaus and you just don't get that same happy bang for your buck. No matter how much money you make well as it turns out you continue to get happier as your income rises and the study didn't find any sort of plateau and happiness after a certain level of income neither in evaluated or experienced wellbeing. Why is this well. The researcher believes that higher earners are happier in part because of an increased sense of control over their life to quote him. He says when you have more money you have more choices about how to live your life. You can likely see this. In the pandemic people living paycheck to paycheck who lose their job. Might need to take the first available job to stay afloat. Even if it's one they dislike able with a financial cushion can wait for one. That's a better fit across decisions. Big and small having more money gives a person more choices and a greater sense of autonomy and quote. So what's the lesson. go out there and make as much money as you can. Because your happiness will just keep skyrocketing actually no because the study also found that people who equate having money to success are actually kinda miserable. They often work long hours and are stressed out about their time. Whoops there goes your sense of autonomy ultimately the takeaway from the study is that money is just one factor happiness and while having money certainly beats not having money. It's ultimately about the sense of control power and autonomy that money affords you and a bunch of other factors too. I mean i'll bet. Richard cory didn't get a lot of hugs growing up so bro. Go hug

Interview With Cory Doctorow
"Doctor. Wrote welcome to monica. Reads so tell us tell us more about the primus of tax service well attack surfaces the third novel in the little brother sequence at the first two little brother and homeland were young. Adult books about a character. Marcus yellow starts off. His very young teen who is caught in what amounts to a police state when his hometown of san francisco is bombed by terrorists and the department of homeland security swoop in and effectively suspend the constitution and all civil liberties and he and his mates form guerrilla army. Using things like hacked. Xboxes that use cryptographic secured wireless networking to outmaneuver the joss and eventually expelled them from the city and and restore human rights and civil liberties to the population and the third book attack. Surface is a standalone novel for adults and one of the first two are about people who are terrified. By the possibility of technology being used for oppression and excited about the possibility of technology being used for liberation. This third books protagonist is the young woman. Masha maximo who appears in the first two books as a kind of antagonised in the first book we meet her as a vhs contractor. Helping to spy on marcus and his friends even though she's of the same age and from the same background as them in the second book. She's a way bandit working to spy on jihadis and disrupt insurgent networks in iraq for the us government an enormous markup and when we meet her in the third book. she's just gone full cyber mercenary and her job is helping a thinly-veiled version of a company like the ns. Oh group to spy on pro democracy movements on behalf of post-soviet dictator so they can figure out who to round up and torture and murder and she has a reckoning with her conscience. She on the one hand has been spending her whole career finding ways to justify what she does Sneaking secrets out to marcus and his friends so they could blow the whistle wrongdoing or helping marcus escape from the da chest in the first book but by the third book she's really had to Devolve into some pretty self destructive conduct like helping the people that she spies on Defeat the tools that she herself as installing. And that's obviously not sustainable. And eventually she gets fired and worse has to run away from this post soviet republic and finds herself back in san francisco where she discovers to her horror that her childhood best friend who's now on a successor movement to black lives matter is being targeted by the very same cyber weapons that she herself spent her whole life building and while the first two books inspired a really large cohort of technologists and civil rights lawyers and writers and activists and security researchers and cryptographer offers who wanted to use their technical and legal powers for good and to stave off technological apocalypse. And dystopia this. Their book is aimed more at the people who rationalize their way. One decision a time in tech and other industries into participating in a vast confiscation of human liberty and human thriving in service to large corporations and oppressive governments and to talk about what it means to pull back from the brink. When you recognize one day that that you can no longer justify what you've been doing of course corey. That is exactly the situation. We find ourselves in absolutely i mean in two thousand eighteen. We saw twenty thousand google's walk off the job tech won't build it and tech solidarity and no tech for ice and other movements within the giant tech companies are not only organizing around technological issues but also around labor and environmental issues and and you see technologists now reaching outside of their bubble so for example at amazon the movement for justice there within the company spans warehouse workers who are laboring under absolutely ghastly and what should be unlawful conditions and tech workers. Whose initial concern was surveillance and climate. But who discovered that they could not make progress nor could they feel good about their movement unless incorporated the labor concerns of these people at the bottom of the ladder at the company.
You Get What You Pay For
"All right. welcome to the show. I'm cory samuelson. So i have a bit of a challenge today in that i have less time than i usually would to record an episode so i am under a bit of a time constraint and i'm just going to get right into this and we'll see how this turns out it's going to be interesting. This is chapter. Twenty five of the gym caribbean. The title is you. Get what you pay for begin. You get what you pay for if you don't pay the price don't expect the result even on paying that price. There's no guarantee of outcome in conditioning. The body people will go to great lengths to create the results. They desire and they may well succeed. It comes at a cost a champion bodybuilder with all their muscle mass will never be a champion marathon runner with their lighter build and vice versa. At least not if they choose to continue training as they do even with all the appropriate choices along the way genetics environment and other factors outside. The bounds of self control influenced the outcome. Now you look to someone with the physical conditioning. You would prefer to have for yourself. Did you make the same choices. Have you put in the same effort. Place yourself in the same environment. Also what of your genetics. Your height the set of your femur within your hip sock your ability to digest lactose. We are not all dealt the same cards in life. Each unique circumstance requires independent. Well reasoned thinking. Just don't make the mistake of saying. I could have done. They've done if i wanted to. You didn't want to else. You'd have made different choices and be living a different life. If you're truly serious. Get to work. The excellence you would live is available in this moment. it will not necessarily. He'll the outcome you prefer. This will take effort over the long term and is not simply a matter of choice but the price remains to be paid regardless and quote. This is a fairly easily understood chapter. And there's a common saying out there in the world. I don't know who started at tour where it came from but basically there's no free lunch. Everything costs something. The common theme here is that whatever it is that we would like to experience. There's going to be a cost to be paid as i was developing stoke strength as a method and a bit of a philosophy in itself. I was looking very carefully at the terms. And the words that i was using it and the concepts that i thought were the most important to get across as it recap the way i define stoic. Strength is operating with virtuous self control in the moment of choice. Now when i used that term virtuous self control sometimes that can be a little confusing or at least not be that clear to people who don't follow stoic philosophy or think about ethics and morality and whatnot. So another definition that i use for stoic. Strength is operating with excellence. In the moment of choice now this again has to do with virtue. The definition of virtue can be thought of as excellent. We all have a concept of things that are unsatisfactory or poor quality and something that is excellent so from virtuous self control to excellence a little bit easier to understand an interesting little knock on effect of changing that definition just that little bit from virtuous self-control to excellence. I realized that operate with excellence. She take the first letters that turns into the word o. As in a debt. That must be paid and i realized
Online shopping has been supercharged by the pandemic
"The trend is e commerce. It's almost like the bully in the parking lot. It was already winning all the fights and now it just like body slam the rest of the world in terms of retail. There's some generational gaps with ecommerce. She think of your grandparents age. You know someone that's seventy or older for instance they didn't grow up at a time. We're technology existed and your. They became young adults when there was no iphones no internet etc and so you take into adulthood skepticism about about these types of things like you know that they exist but you don't adopt them in the same way that a young teenager would today and even that generation now is kind of hop offense fence and come over to the ecommerce stark side. Because you can't go out in unfortunately you can't go out and live your life the way that they used to you know especially if you're elderly and so it's i think it's a double whammy in terms of picking up adopters and it's not a short term thing. This is not a situation where when cova goes away that people are going to go back to like you know what i really enjoy going to the mall because during the most

"They don't take away each other if we do it right. Yeah yeah and. I want to close by just saying i've if thirty years old which is amazing. I've been with the organization nearly twenty years. Which is baffling. And the thing that i've learned on the way is that these are all questions of movements and not individuals like as an individual. The best thing you can do join a movement right like if you're worried about climate change. It doesn't really like how well you recycle is way less important than what you do with your neighbors to change the way that we think about our relationship to the climate and if you're worried about our technological environment than your individual choices do matter but they don't matter nearly so much as the choices that you make when you get together with other people to make this part of a bigger water struggle. I think that so right. And and even those who are out there in their garages innovating right now. They need all the rest of the conversation to work. You know nobody just put something out there in the world and it magically caught fire and change the world i mean. We like that narrative. But that's not how it works and so even if you're one of those people and there are many of them are eff fans and we love them. Who are like out there thinking about the next big idea. This whole movement has to move forward so that that big idea against the find the vernal grounded needs take seed and grows and then gives all the rest of us the really cool stuff in our fixed future so of thank you so much cory for Taking time with us you know you never. You never fail to To bring exciting ideas. And i think that you also are really willing to talk To a sophisticated audience and not talk down to people and and bring in complicated ideas Without without having and expect and get the audience to Come up to the level of the conversation so i certainly always learn from talking with you. I rose to say. I learned it all from you guys. So thank you very much. And i miss you guys Can't wait to see you in person again. Korea's this little bowl of pure idea concentrate and i was madly scribbling notes through the discussion but one of the phrases. The stuck with me was the he said. The company is a blocking interoperability to control critics customers and competitors. Yeah i thought that was really good too and and and obviously the most important part of all of this is control. I mean that's what the companies have. Of course the part about critics is what especially triggers. The first amendment concerns But the but control is the thing. And i think that the the ultimate power that that we should have The bolt amount of control. We should have is the ability to leave. The ultimate power is the power to leave the. That's the core thing that is needed to get companies to concentrate on their users The conflict here is really between companies desire to control users and users Having the right to choose where they want to be one of the other things that i think comes out of this. Discussion is when you realize that. Companies by blocking interoperability can have exclusive power of.

I was hearing about this guy cory booker. who's coming and he's big and he's on point with everything. And what are you doing. i. I don't know what we're hearing it'll be before. I was mayor than in the time of public enemy. And you don't believe the height. Look i was the superpower that was evidenced for me growing up which was not exaggerating. I think it's actually. A superpower under underrated is kindness. Like i just. I just watched two parents who were really good people and would see people that folks walk past all the time. I one of my favorite quotes by humorous gave. Barry has this goes someone who nice to you but not nice to the waiter is not a nice person but you and i both know 'cause i know you have this kindness and you as well that when you are kind of people. Incredible things happen that you don't realize your favorite stories and i'll tell you the quicker version but you go into school at stanford i'd five back and forth across the country. I still remember getting on this plane as a stanford student and being is torturous. When you're like six foot three football player tight end just like coach. Was you know always like my knees. We're going to be banged up on this plane. I have two seats open next to the rest of the plane is full and just before the door closes. This woman walks in with a screaming baby and a little boy and everybody on that plane. Those where they're sitting because the only three bodies two seats. And i think that we all don't realize we have a choice that we make every moment of our lives which is to accept things as they are or take responsibility for changing and so something evolved thought for teenage college student. That point hit which was. This is either going to be the worst flight in my life where i can try to make the best so i just leaned in and started talking to her in the cry baby in soon as i got into my own drama. I realize. Oh my gosh. This woman has a crying baby. The whole plane is looking at her like she's evil as she did something outside and told her baby to cry. Purposefully right and and so we just having a good time. I still remember the movie. Think about this. How purposeful this moment for me. That i remember that movie was glory with denzel washington. And she's like. I haven't seen the movie and so long and i'm like watch this movie your son and i we're gonna play games. We played hangman. Killed them with all my best. Dad jokes that. I had even back then killed them and hangman mad. And by the time we landed. It was the quickest flight. I ever had cross country. You said we keep in touch. We exchange addresses back then no email and didn't and five ten fifteen years later. I'm running for mayor of the city of newark. And i'm getting like thumped and on one of my toughest ones frustrating days. I get this letter in the mail saying to me. You may not remember me but But i you were on this flight first time. I flew with my kids telling me what the kindness then meant to her and then she tells me by the way we. My family owns a big factory in newark and we have tons of employees. She ended up becoming a big part of my campaign. That kid that i tortured with my jokes became one of our best volunteers or per workers. Excuse me to take. Their churches introduced me. It was just an amazing full circle. Kindness is energy stanford. Professor actually studies this that you just doing one kind act witnessed by someone. It will affect people three degrees of separation for you. it is created a way to measuring it. it's a virtuous thing and so my life you know. I just think that that's is a superpower that we under related just a kind word to somebody at the right time can make a difference that you don't even realize so. I don't know if i don't have any superpowers. I'm really far more ordinary than the hype as you just said but i've just tried to go out of my way for me. It's it's a matter of my faith which is of radical love trying to do for people and you have parents like you. And i probably had two black guys who had parents would not let me forget of the struggle parents that were involved in the civil rights movement. That my i. I was raised up thinking like i didn't the privileges that i enjoy. We're not earned. They were paid for as my grandparents. Would by the blood sweat and tears of your ancest-. I definitely grew up thinking i stand on the shoulders of those who came before me. I have a responsibility to the people who march to died protested. Who were enslaved. There i remember being in college and thinking you know i was why and i didn't feel that responsibility. The past i mean cool to like pena. Cia but i can't. I have a responsibility. People came before me. I wouldn't be here without them. So i have to do something. And perhaps my think my journey in media has been something of being helpful black people in some way but you know that sense of responsibility that you talk about. I definitely felt and you have that has powered your life. It is the my faith earlier. But that is in trenton. Integral part of what motivated my life decisions. And very you know i. I'm here because a group of people fought for my housing rights. Like i grew up in the town. I grew up in harrington park. There was a group of activists when my parents were getting denied real estate agents were lying to them and telling this house is sold. It was called real estate steering at the time right and so they set up this sting operation where they would send white couples right behind my parents and so it i mean this was the story into making chapter my book because involvement at one point. My father's lawyer getting punched in the face and just like dog being signal. my dad craziness. But i'm a baby when that happened. Fifty years ago this summer that had happened and so imagine growing up with parents that could live. Look you in the eye. My dad be like boy. People had fight even get you a chance to be in the school. You're going to. You're going to get your out of bed and go to school and make the best out of yourself and so coming out of loss when i'm done and i always joke that my dad was like bat impressed. He was proud of his son but stanford oxford yale. He's like boy. You got more degrees the month of july. Which ain't hot life ain't about the degrees you get. It's about the service you give like. We're gonna do with all this privilege and so the first job. I had coming out of law. School was a tennis rights lawyer. People fought for my housing rights. I was going to go and fight for other people's and so my life. And i love you said this because we grew up reading bolt we reading voice and talented tenth and the obligations of that you get from getting the privileges that you know are denied to you. Got here is black. Men who i know the data i mean the leading cause of death for us murder fifty four fifty between fifty and sixty percent homicides in america are people look a lot like us black men and and so you feel this sense of. I can't rest. I've got to keep working. Got to keep pushing until we can make the society be what it is and by the way we never get there. At least we can try to pay that payback. What was given to us.
New Mexico is first state to elect all women of color to the House
"There's a historic first last night David, including the election of LGBT Q politicians, Delaware elected the first openly trance state senator in the country, Sarah McBride In Kansas, Stephanie buyers became the first openly transgender person ever elected to the Kansas State House and the first openly trans person of color ever elected to the state Legislature in the US, Cory Bush became the first black woman Elected to Congress from Missouri. Richie Tour is here in New York. He became the nation's first openly gay black congressman. The entire New Mexico House delegation is now made up of women of color. So you know, Tio, some of our colors, points about like, how in a pink Pepsi on Twitter about how could be so close? How could trump be re elected? I mean, Should we be thinking about the country's a little more purple than red and blue? I think so. I think that's a huge takeaway here, and that's certainly what we've been hearing kind of going into the rights and Georgia, for instance, like we talked about the purple in Georgia for for a long time now, But no, I think that you know you you bring up those examples and they're so important and they're so positive because that kind of representation matters and it's so important and should inspire others to get into politics. You know, I, um I hope that that catches fire and we see that more places across the country, but I was just struck. You were listening Those names just how they're not confined to a small set of states. That really was something that's happening more broadly. I think that A lesson from this campaign. The last couple of campaigns is how kind of hard work politics on the part of unknown candidates or underdog candidates can really pay off. We certainly thought that in New York City last cycle with Alexandra Cozzi Cortez winning that surprise victory. I mean, that was kind of thing that lit the fire for so many of the other. Often more progressive candidates to do well in yes State House races in Congress races across the country, So I think that you're right and picking up on the trend here and count me among the hopeful who think that it's going to be the start of a of a longer trend yet.

Cory Gardner, the Republican Colorado conceded to the former governor. A moment ago, I spoke to Senator elect John Hickenlooper to congratulate him on his victory tonight.

While it appears the seat held by incumbent Republican Martha McSally is going to the Democrat, former astronaut Mark Kelly. Exactly said it was too soon to make that call.

John Gorman Discusses the Use of Opportunity Zones to Address Social Determinants
"During this podcast saw discussed efforts to address social determinants of health with John Gorman chairman of the nightingale partners and founder and former Executive Chairman of Gorman Health Group. John Welcome to the program. Thanks David. Great to be here. especially with another native DC guy here most welcome John's by is, of course, posted on the podcast website. Briefly on background, the ongoing covid nineteen pandemic has exposed. The country's failed to adequately address the social determinants of health. Generally defining health access and quality education, economic circumstances, food security, social conditions, and environmental factors. It is estimated that where people live work and socialize determines as much as sixty percent of their health status. Whereas formal medical care accounts for just ten percent. For example concerning. Circumstances forty years of wage stagnation among lower income earners has left forty five percent of working age Americans. With either no health care insurance for insurance without a pocket expenses so high. They avoid sinking care went for example, they developed covid nineteen related symptoms. Healthcare policy makers have slowly begun to take an interest in addressing sto ages as a way to improve health delivery by increasing increasing appropriate utilization and reducing costs. For example, Medicare, advantage plans which enroll more than one third of all Medicare beneficiaries have recently been given regulatory authority to offer Ma benificiary supplemental benefits beyond medical care such as mail deliveries, home modifications, and Personal Care Services. With beginning, discuss, addressing, social determine, specifically use of what are termed opportunities zones. Again. John Gorman. So Jon with that as background. Louis. Begin by asking if you could provide a brief overview of nightingale. Sure David Nangle partners is one of these weird opportunities zone funds that came out of trump's big tax giveaway bill It was actually Cory Booker's program that was designed to encourage investment in real estate and disadvantaged communities and I was sitting on my ass retired last spring and got a notification that the irs had just completely revamped the rags to allow opportunities own capital to be used not just for real estate investment. But also for leases one portly for working capital or for meeting the business requirements of a new company inside one of the nine thousand roughly nine thousand opportunities zones around the country and those opportunities owns David are all. Severely, economically disadvantaged and more importantly medically underserved, and because the irs allowed now opportunities own capital to be used for working capital for meeting business requirements. That's what opened the door to allow us to use opportunities on Capitol to make large scale investments in social determinants of health intervention. So nightingale partners with insurers with health systems with large medical groups to finance design launch, and where necessary execute on our goals to improve. The quality of care for vulnerable populations. In this country, a lot of people like to say and I love it that we packed a Republican billionaire tax shelter in order to improve care for black drought people on that gets me up every morning. Sir Thank you. So this as you noted, this was a provision in the December seventeen tax bill. Specifically page one, hundred, and thirty. This was picked up this previous legislation as you noted, that as you mentioned senator from New Jersey Cory Booker but also the South Carolina African American Republican, the only one Tim Scott. So this is picked up in the tax bill previous legislation and you mentioned the nine thousand. So these are census tracts that meet this low income community criteria wrote and then explain to me. Governors than have to select a discrete number. That could benefit from this. Tax Advantage program is that correct doubts correct and there was a little bit of mischief but some of the governors in the designation of some of those areas and there's been, you know some gamesmanship with this story like you know Chris Christie, the former governor of New Jersey is. Used an opportunity zone fund open up frigging LAUNDROMAT. In Asbury, Park with Bruce, springsteen cats not the kind of stuff that we do. I'm not surprised to hear that I guess the former governor is a is obsessed with. Mr Asbury Park and again just so on. Understand better more clearly, this is the tax advantage here is that by investing the capital gains on your investment, you can avoid paying the. Twenty three percent the capital gains tax and that basically. Sure go ahead, go ahead. Well, basically, the way it works is that if you invest money or capital gains in and opportunities zone and you leave it in for at least ten years, not only is the initial investment completely tax free but then all of the proceeds that you make on that investment are completely tax free. So high net worth individuals. And family offices large corporations the generate large amounts of capital gains love this program, and indeed it opened up about six point two trillion dollars in available capital based on the amount of capital gains that we generate in our economy. So of that amount, David Roughly a hundred billion dollars has been invested thus far into opportunities zones off. The roughly eight months programs operate.

And that's like saying you can have a really big faucet on your house and it doesn't matter what kind of water maintenance connected to. The Faucet, is not problem there. So let's talk about water I a 'cause. I'm not sure I agree with you on this talking about water right? If the House pays water bill. and. And Josh Is. Decides to only drink bottled water that brings in. He only peas into. Composting toilet that he has in his house. And he takes care of all that he never touches a drop of water a Dune type situation do where's still suit totally water independent of the rest of the house should he have to pay part of? Water bill. Simply because it's available. Okay. I'm going to make a different argument here I'M GONNA I'M GONNA scratch and re factor here. The reason he should do it is is the categorical imperative if all six of these people sat down and said, well, you know we all pitch in for the groceries but I never let us so I want eighteen cents off my grocery bill and we all pitch in for this we all pitch in for that and I I don't even.

To have that arrangement to live in a house community and happily is to have arrangement where you acknowledge that there are some positive externalities that other people benefit from just as you benefit from their positive extra analyses, I, agree with all of those things except the why I'm sorry. Here's an say. It pains me to disagree with my friend Cory doctoral even though I, agree with Gloria on all points. If, it can be said truthfully, if Josh is not using that Wi fi. If he's not watching the television, right? If he's not streaming a thing if he's like if it's true that the only Internet that he's getting is off of his own phone..

"Well Lo and welcome back to the Cory doctorow podcast. It is another Sunday and the British edition of the third little brother novel attack surface has been out for four days since October 31st. If you're in the UK or Australia or New Zealand or India or South Africa or other English-speaking countries that aren't Canada or the US the head of Zeus edition of attack surface is available to you and that also means that if you live in those countries, you're too late to preorder it and get a copy of the exclusive little brother story that comes with it for pre-orders. That's the story Force multiplier, which you Roy took if you buy an advanced, however, there is still a way to get it which is to back my Kickstarter. My Kickstarter has just a few days left in it. It's just crossing to page. Fifty thousand dollars, which is quite a damn result. I mean, hang on I just need a minute. Yeah, it's quite a damn result and everyone who backs that Kickstarter at any level will get a copy of both the book and audiobook for Force multiplier when it comes out. If you're a Canadian or an American the print edition that you can buy comes out on October 13th from Tor books distributed in Canada by raincoast and you still have time to pre-order a copy and get your receipt to tour and they will send you force multiplier when the book comes out. However, you also can back that Kickstarter and honestly, if you like listening to me read non-fiction, that means that you like my fiction in audio form and that means that you would probably like this audiobook and the audiobook of attack surface has been getting great early reviews and it is $15 on the kickstarter and it will be $25 after the kickstarter. So this is your chance to get it at a significant discount for just a few more days. So once again off And a beat that drum the kickstarter for tax surface has just a few more days $15 gets you a copy of the audio book plus the bonus story Force multiplier as an e-book an audiobook day-and-a-half. There we go. All right, what else is going on? Well last week you heard me talk about the attack surface lectures these eight bookstore sponsored lectures across the u.s. With special guests were talking about the themes from the book and like I said, I could not figure out any way to make sense of this so that if you wanted to go more than one you didn't have to pay twice, but at least I had this tiny little partial solution. Well, it's a there's two parts of the partial solution. The first part is we're going to put the videos up afterwards. I don't know exactly when still negotiating that but you know, it's not going to be too long and so you can watch all eight of them for free the other part though is that if you do want to go more than one and you are okay with paying which like again you don't need to you can just wait until afterwards, but if you want to juice Soliciting libraries schools halfway house has juvy facilities prison libraries other institutions that want a copy of attack surface and I'm going to list wage those on a page that you can go to and if you buy a copy of the book that you don't need in order to attend one of the lectures you can send your copy to one of them that also means that if you're affiliated with or if you're close too soon as you age ended with a library a school University a halfway house of prison homeless shelter family shelter any other institution that might like a free.

"The show by going to patreon, June 1st was a dollar month. You can get early access to all our episodes and Patron only episodes are big. Thank you to all our supporters so far at the beginning they are you hurt Our Guest this week author and gentle rights Advocate Cory doctorow and we're going to be talking to Corey in a moment about among other things his new book attack surface and about where his work intersects with economics and all about the importance of the late. Great Anthropologist. David graeber who with his book Debt the first 5,000 years got many of us thinking about money in a different way the typical mainstream economics textbook story is that money is a system of tokens that evolved spontaneously through humans needing to solve the problem of barter the inconvenience of them. To wait for someone to come along who not only had what you wanted, but also wanted what you had to so-called double coincidence of wants and to solve the problem human started using Focus to represent value starting with feathers and stones and Beads and shells and eventually settling on precious metals because you can make them into coins, and they're hard to counterfeit and because the precious metals at some point people prefer not to carry them around, but instead to lock them in volts a tissue paper ious for their precious metals, and then eventually people worked out that the system would work fine without the precious metals to back up the I owe you's so then we moved to Pure Fiat currencies, and then we worked out that we didn't even need to carry around the paper money. So now we just keep most of our currency tokens as long entries on a spreadsheet at an institution called a bank and when we want to pay someone we tell our bank to move some of our tokens from our name and our bank into another person's name. Their Bank by writing a check or swiping a card and our respective Banks change our Ledger entries according to our instructions.

"Hey welcome back to the doctor podcast five and a half days after the last one came out I can be very specific about that because five and a half days ago my kickstarter launched for the audiobook of surface. The third little brother book which I had to produce independently because I can't sell my audio books on Amazon because they refuse to. Carry anything that's free and audible their audio bookstore. So five and a half days ago I launched the kickstarter I asked you to support it. I emailed everyone who'd ever sent me a fan letter asking them to support it. I spoke to every person who had open. DMZ A mutual of mine on twitter and sent an email to everybody who'd ever bought. An e book or audio book in the Little Brother Series from me you probably heard from me if you're a listener, my guess is you fit into one of those categories, and if so you will see that I am running this kickstarter starter that I am seeking fifteen dollar pre purchases of the otherwise twenty five dollar audiobook of attack surface and. that. You can also get the other audio books in the series and the other e books in the series and that it's all been read by amber, Benson and directed by Cassandra declare and edited and mastered by John Taylor. Williams. Who is listening to me speak these words right now hello John, and in the five and a half days since the kickstarter. Let me hit reload here. I have received pledges of one, hundred, sixty, four, thousand, two, hundred, eighty, four dollars. From three, thousand, seven, hundred and forty, five backers, which is like. Just. Amazing. The dollar some there. That's the headline figure obviously is humbling. Get excited all the money for the e books is not one hundred percent mind seventy percent of it goes my publishers and the little brother audiobook came from Random House. They get eighty percent get some of that back afterwards in the form of royalty but yeah. Money is mine. And that solved. Our financial problems, we are no longer financially precarious for months and months and months to come long enough certainly for to sell my next novel, The Lost Cause, my post green new deal novel that I'm working on. Now I. Expect that that negotiation we'll go very well because impart I'm GONNA be able to talk about how if they by the audiobook rights, we can try crowdfunding it. That's what I want to talk to you about right now. Is what the actual goal here was because the goal was not to make me financially solvent. You know even at our most precarious our family was so much better off than so many more deserving people in this world are facing eviction or living on the streets. People in my city here in Burbank are in much worse shape than I am. And so that's not why I did this, and that's not what I was seeking although I'm glad to have it. The reason I did this is I want to change publishing. Every audiobook sold on Amazon's audible platform comes with dram. You can't opt out of it as the rightsholders, the publisher or the author and Dram is a felony to remove or to traffic and tools for its removal. Even if you own.

"In Sixteen Sixty John Locke published his two treatises of government where he set out to resolve the seeming conflict between individual property rights, which he valorize, D- And the Bible Ditto which set out the principle that God had created the Earth and its bounty for all of humanity. How could a Christian claim to own something personally when God intended for everyone to share? His creation logs answer was the labor theory of property. Private property is the result of a human being taking an unclaimed piece of the common property of humanity and mixing it with their labor. Each human owns their body, and thus the Labor of that body creating our property cocktail one part unimproved nature, one part-human sweater the brown mix well, and serve in perpetuity. More than a thousand years before John was born the people of the island of Keke coined the term Aloha, which is president all the languages of the region today. It's an untranslatable word that conveys a beautiful complex blend of emotions and sentiments. So iconic that adherence to the aloha spirit has been Hawaiian state law since one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, six and the nineteen seventies three hundred years after the publication two treaties of Government Hawaiian express their aloha spirit and dish called poke a delicious mix of raw fish served with Seaweed, rice, Greens, roasted, and craft cuckoo not mean and other variations in two thousand twelve. This dish spreads the mainland and mutated further acquiring many new and delicious variants in two thousand, sixteen centuries after Aloha and lock decades after Polka. Zach friedlander founded a restaurant called aloha poke in Chicago, and in the summer of two thousand eighteen friedlander successor Chris Birkenshaw retain the law firm of Olsen and support us limited to threaten Hawaiian shafts operating pokey restaurants insisting that they remove the word Aloha from their business names friedlander defended the company's actions and dismissed criticism as a quote witch hunt and quote fake news. Eventually prompted of Polka to issue a half oust self pitying apology and tobacco off a little from its threats. Reading that apology, you can see the specter of lock haunting every word Friedlander, his staff, and his investors put real work into making a midwestern chain of restaurants identified by the name below. Those unimproved words had been around forever and no one else was building a national empire with them by getting to the idea I and mixing their labor with it. They had transformed the bounty of nature into private property. This odious spectre haunts much of the world today and it has plenty of company for this conception of property rights has sent millions to their graves in seventeen seventy, eight Europeans began to colonize the inhabited continent of Australia who's aboriginal people have lived there for over sixty five, thousand years. These people did not embrace lock in property theories, but they certainly used an improved the land they had inhabited for virtually the entire era of behaviorally modern human existence. The Europeans staunch lock INS had a problem. They want a harvest, the bounty of a new continent, but absent the agreement of the people who already live there. This would be theft by lockie and lights. To solve the conundrum, they deployed a bit of Aloha poke logic. They declared the ancient community helping to be owned by no one they called it terra nullius nobody's land and proceeded to improve it to make it into property meaning these improvements involved acts of genocide against the indigenous people after all, if something is owned by nobody than the people on the land must be nobody. Both finality of Aloha. And the genocidal brutality of terra nullius reveal deep problem lurking in the lock in conception of property. All the stuff that's just lying around is actually already in relation to other people often the kind of complex relation that doesn't lend itself to property like transactions where someone with deep pockets can come along in by thing from its existing quote owner. The Labor theory of property always begins with an active erasure, all the people who created used and improve this thing before me we're doing something Banal and unimportant, but my contribution is the step that move this thing from a useless unregarded comments to a special proprietary finished good. Criticism of this delusion of personal exceptionalism is buttress by of affronted perplexity can't you see how much of my really top notch Labor I blended with as natural resource to improve it who will willingly give their own Labor to future projects. If every time they do loafers, takers common free ride on their new property. This Move continues the erasure. It denies the claims of everyone who came before you as a historical figments. The people coined popularized and nurtured the word aloha or inhabited. The Australasian landmass are stripped to their claims as though they were honeybees whose output is a naturally occurring substance that property belongs to the beekeeper, not the swarm. The sins of settler colonialism are rife with this kind of lock in delusion. Taryn Nullius was doctrine applied by all manner of Europeans to all manner of quote, new worlds. It is also front and center in the most pernicious intellectual property debates the parts of musical composition that Europeans refi melody are eligible for copyright, but the characteristically afro-caribbean elements complex poly rhythm are not has the Beatles. Could appropriate be progressions and rhythms to make new music of about woven tied the hip hop artist who samples the Beatles to make a new composition today. The Beatles worked with UNIMPROVED nature that his arm be while samplers are stealing the property of the Beatles Record Label. But. Even though the lock in delusion is often ranked in racism intellectual property debates also contain equal opportunity erasure. Invention is an intensely personal activity that has nevertheless socially determined as Kevin Kelly documents and incredible unmissable twenty ten book what technology wants most of the major breakthroughs of our species were recurring phenomena, TV radio and break throughs occurred more or less simultaneously and independently all over the world.

"Hi there and welcome back to the Corey Dr a podcast I'm sorry that this is coming a few days like this week I've been having Mike Problems very early on during the plague, our local power substation exploded. Probably. Because they were running short handed and couldn't do routine maintenance, the fireball was visible from several miles away my power supply conditioner was tied to throw it away. And My soundboard where I plug my mic into start Fritz, and it's been getting worse and worse than I tried replacing it with some other equipment none of which ended up working. I've got more equipment on order. John has been tirelessly helping me tech this but in the meantime. Needed some financing to get you a reporting. So I'm hoping that my recording gear holds up because I have a couple of gigs coming up this week. The first is that on the twelfth, which is in two days as I record this Monday afternoon that I'm recording us, I'll be talking with Christopher Brown about failed state his latest novel the third of his novels about a kind of Echo Pakalitha Texas legal thriller comes cyberpunk Thriller Come Eco Thriller they're really Good Books Brown another one in Bruce Sterling's proteges and really is. An amazing writer and a very fun and thoughtful speaker too. So it should be a good event we're doing with book people in Austin, my very favorite bookstores in the whole world, and then on the fifteenth as I mentioned last week, I'm being inducted into the Canadian fiction and fantasy hall of fame, and that's a the when worlds collide convention events free to attend P WANNA. Hear me say all kinds of schmaltzy things and maybe choke up a little. That's the one to come to. You know the drill I have new books. There's an omnibus edition of little brother and homeland that's just come out with an introduction by ED. SNOWDEN makes a handy. Dandy gift they're beautiful and there's also my first ever picture book Posey the Monster slayer delightful book illustrated by Rockefeller, about a little girl who doesn't like to go to bed because it's much more fun to repurpose her toys field expedient monster. Hunting weapons. This is great for her not so great for her parents whose lack of sleep turns them into zombies, and that is the only kind of monster that this little girl posy can't defeat. Yes I am drawing on some personal experience here, and thankfully our daughter is sleeping a little better these days now that she's twelve, I hope you're sleeping K. to I hope your life is chugging along well. So, this week, I'm not GonNa read to you from someone comes to. Town. Because someone on twitter pointed out that I never read my locust column Terra Nullius into this podcast. I think that's because I- podcast a speech I gave that hued very closely to the column that I gave at the Internet archive as part of what they call the grand reopening in the public domain that was ear and change ago when for the first time in seventy years, new works enter the public domain in the United States and they had a party like it was nineteen, twenty, nine I think was the thing now that I think about it that sounds starting to maybe party like nineteen twenty-three. I don't know I can't remember what the actual date was, but I went and gave this talk about the nature of copyright and so-called Intellectual Property afterwards. Some people I really admire said some really kind things about Larry lessig James Boyle, and others so. That went over. Well, the title turned Nullius obviously comes from this idea that settlers colonialists used in the so-called new world. But in particular that phrase came to mind when I spoke in several forums in Australia during the tour for walkaway and in many of those cases I spoke with or opposite clear Coleman who has a very good book by that title Terron Elliot's Clara's on aboriginal person from Australia who is also trains and who wrote a book about the intersection of gender indigenous identity and Australian politics. That is very good and I recommend you. Okay Dan without further ado, I'm going to now re to turn Elias I've got a reduction get out of here because I got a big day ahead of me, I'm going to go into a studio and record a documentary interview for vice they have.

No one has been in the studio since Friday been sitting empty I'm GonNa go in masked no one else is going to be there will be a video camera and a screen pointing at me that will interview me and I'm going to use a sterile microphone that I click to my own lapel to talk back it's going to be an adventure. Kind booked me studio around the corner and apparently the century is going to be the cornerstone of the dock. So they have asked me to come in for a very long time two and a half hour. So I gotTA hurry here. So that further ado then turn Elliot's from the March twenty, nineteen issue of Locus magazine..

"Missed dinner. George said I had more important things to do. Joe said I was out with an imagine near. George stared hard at him. What did the imagine your want? Is there trouble Joe gave a deprecating laugh? Why do you always think there's trouble? The Guy wanted to chat with me. He likes me wants to get to know me. His name is woodrow. He's in charge of a whole operations division and he was interested in what I thought of some of his plans. He stopped and waited for George to be impressed. George knew what the pause was for. That's very good. You must be doing a good job for your lead to mention you to him. That little prick. He hates my guts. Woodrow's building a Special Operations unit out of lateral thinkers. He wants new blood creativity. He says I have a unique perspective. Did you talk to Orville? Orrville was the soft one who brought them from their father's shack to the island and he was their mentor and advocate inside. It's Byzantine politics. Bill had confided to George that he suspected Orville was of a different species from the soft ones. He certainly seemed to know. More about Georgia's kind than a soft one had any business knowing Joe Torre Hunt from the carcass on the rickety kitchen table and stuffed into his mouth around that he mumbled something that might have been yes and might have been no. It was Joe's favorite stratagem and it was responsible for the round belly that bulge dope beneath his skinny chest. Joe Torre way more than half of the meat and made for the door. Woodrow wants to meet with me again this morning. He don't wait up for me tonight. He left the cottage and set off toward the tram stop. Bill rolled over on his bedding and said I don't like this at all. George kept quiet. Bills Voice surprised him. But it shouldn't have. Bill was clever enough to lie. Still and feign sleep so that he could overhear Joe's conversations where George would have just sat up and started talking. Orrville should know about this but I can't tell if it would make him angry if it made him angry and he punished Joe. It would be our fault for telling him then. We won't tell him. George said Bill held up his hand. But if we don't tell him and he finds out on his own he may be angry with us then we should tell him. George said but Joe when woodrow may not get along after all and if that happens the whole thing will end on its own. Then we won't tell him George said but if they do get along then they may do something that would make orrville angry. Bill looked expectantly George then we should tell him. George said uncertaintly. I don't know bill said I haven't decided George knew that this meant that bill would have to think on it and so he left him. He had to catch the tram to make it to his shift anyway. The soft one with the six to noon shift left as soon as George arrived without a word George was used soft ones not having anything to say to him and preferred it that way. He was better off than bill. Soft ones always wanted to talk to bill and he hated it since they never had anything to say to bill. That bill wanted to know the weather needed. No discussion bill said and as for the complaints about the shifts lead. Well one soft one was just about the same as any other and Orville had told them that. At the end of the day they worked for him. Not for any lead. Joe Talk Joe. Liked talking to the soft ones. Joe Likes to talk period. He told the soft ones lies about their childhood in the shack with their father and told them about how his brothers tormented and even talked about the weather when he got back home he told his brothers all over again everything he told the soft ones George and memorize the sap manual when they came to the island five years before it clearly said the floor of the booth would be disinfected every three hours and the surfaces polished clean and the pots and machines refilled the soft one with the six to noon. Shift never did any of these things which could get him disciplined by their lead. But George didn't complain. He just wiped and disinfected and restocked when he arrived even though he had to be extra careful with the water so that he didn't wash himself away. Boys ran up and down the midway baking in the midday sun. They reminded George of the boys he'd gone to school with after the social worker had come to his father shack. They teased him to begin with but he just stood with his hands at his sides until they stopped every time he started a new grade or a new kid came to the school. It was the same. They tease him or hit him or throw things at him and he'd stand strong and silent until they stopped even if it took months. His teachers quickly learned that calling on him and classmates standing an awkward silence while he sat stoic and waited for them to call on someone else. The social worker could make him go to school with the soft ones but she couldn't make him act like George watched the boys carefully as carefully as he had when he stood silently in the courtyard. Whoops George watched the boys carefully as carefully as he had when he stood silently in the school yard not seeming to watch anything he was better at spotting donkey than any of the soft ones. When a boy was ready to turn George could almost see the shape of the donkey super employs on. Who when a boy was ready to turn. George could almost see the shape of the donkey superimposed on the boy and he radio to keep to pick up the donkey. Come morning he got a bonus for each when he spotted and according to bill it had accumulated to a sizeable nest egg. George looked at the inventory and decided that the fudge was getting a little long. In the tooth he'd start pushing fudge nut dips and by the end of his shift. The TUB would be empty and he'd be able to give it a thorough cleaning and a refill from fresh stock. Hey guys he called. The three boys is anybody hungry. He dipped to floss and held it up so that it used fudge down his wrist. The boy shyly approached his booth George new from their manner that they were new to the island. Probably just picked up from a video arcade or laser tag tent on the mainland that afternoon. They didn't know what to make of their surroundings. That was clear. Step right up. He said I don't bite. He smiled a smile. He practiced in the mirror when that shaped his soft flexible. Features into a good natured. Expression of idiotic fund cautiously. The boys came forward. They were the target age. Eleven to fourteen and they'd already accumulated some merch baseball. Hats and fanny pack made from neoprene and tropical fish colors emblazoned with the island's logo marks character trademarks. They had the beginnings of dark circles under their eyes and they dragged little with low blood sugar. George dipped to more and distributed them around the eldest. Atto headed kid near the upper age. Range said Mr. We haven't gotten any money. What are these cost? George laughed like a freight train. It's all free sunny free as air courtesy of the management as a reward for very special customers like you. This was scripted but the trick was to sell the line like it was fresh. The boys took the cones from him timidly but ate ravenously. George gave them some logos serve to wipe up with and ground the fudge into his wrists and forearms with one of his own. He looked at his watch and consulted the laminated timetable taped to the counter. Thirteen hundred H which meant that. The bulk of the guests would be migrating towards action. Land in the dinosaur rides and it was time to push the slightly down at the heels freak zone to balance the crowds. You boys like roller coasters. He said the youngest they were similar enough. In appearance and distant enough ages to be brothers. Spoke up yeah. The middle elbowed him and the youngest flipped the middle of the bird. Well if you follow the mid way around this curve to the right and go through the big clown mouth you'll be in the freak zone. We've got a fifteen story. Coaster called the obliterated that loops fifty times in five minutes running over ninety five miles per hour. You Hurry you can beat the line. He looked the youngest in the eye. At the start of the speech then switched to the middle when he talked about the line. The youngest started vibrating with excitement and the middle looked pensive and then to the eldest said sounds. Good Hunt Tom. The eldest said we have even found out where we're sleeping yet. Maybe we can do the right afterwards. George winked at the youngest. Then said don't worry about that kids. I'll get that sorted out for you right now..

"Hey nerds I'm well wheaton and you are hearing me talk. It's Monday April thirteenth. Two Thousand Twenty and Goodness I've been doing this quarantine for like almost I think almost six weeks. It's been awhile for those of you. Who are listening for the very first time Since we started our social distancing and our safer at home initiative I have been grabbing public domain works of speculative fiction and reading and releasing them as free audiobooks. Once or twice a week. I've mostly been going through the Internet archive and grabbing old work that are out of copyright and I had this thought over the weekend and I reached out to my friend Cory doctor Oh Corey is an accomplished and a highly respected science fiction author and a digital rights activists and just an incredible human being and I said Hey. I've been reading all the stuff from the twenties and thirties. And I wondered if you knew. Is there anything from the sixties and seventies and he said? Yeah actually there is and he gave me a couple of recommendations and I said Hey as long as I have your attention. I know that you make all of your work available with the creative. Commons license I know that we have worked together professionally before. Corey has hired me to read some of his audio books In the past and it's been tremendous we have a wonderful working relationship and And and I said I I know that you probably have audio of all of your books but I would love to read one of your stories because I think you're a great author and it would be fun to read something that is a little more contemporary than some of these works that I've been releasing and he said sure. Go ahead take anything you want so I started looking through Corey's a bibliography and I settled on a short story. That is from his book. A place so foreign and eight more. It was originally published in September. Two thousand three by four walls eight windows press and this is a story called return to pleasure island It was originally published in realms of fantasy in August of nineteen ninety nine then it was collected in a place so foreign and eight more in two thousand three and now it is being read By me for free here is a note that Corey included with this file at project. Gutenberg I'm going to read it in its entirety because I think it is awesome and inspiring and then I am going to get out of your way and let you listen to the story which I sincerely hope you enjoy so this is a note about this story from Dr. Oh this story is from my collection a place so foreign and eight more published by four walls eight windows press in September two thousand three. I S Bien one five six eight five eight two eight six two Korean. I have a history of him making me read long strings of numbers. I released the story along with five others under the terms of creative Commons license. That gives you the reader a bunch of rights that copyright normally reserved for me the Creator. I recently did the same thing with the entire Texas. My novel down out in the Magic Kingdom available that crap hound dot com slash down and it was an unmitigated success. Hundreds of thousands of people downloaded the book. Good News and thousands of people bought the book also good news. It turns out that as near as anyone can tell distributing free electronic versions of books is a great way to sell more of the paper editions while simultaneously. Getting the book into the hands of readers who would otherwise not be exposed to my work. I still don't know how it is. Artists will earn a living in the age of the Internet. But I remain convinced that the way to find out is to basic science. That is to do stuff and observe the outcome. That's what I'm doing here. The thing to remember is that the very worst thing you can do to me. As an artist is to not read my work to let it languished in Obscurity and disappear from posterity. Most of the fiction I grew up on is out of print and this is doubly true for the short stories. Losing a couple of bucks to people who have bought the book save for the availability of the free electronic texts is no big deal at least when compared to the horror that is being irrelevant and unread and luckily for me. It appears that giving away the text for free gets me more paying customers than it loses me. You can find the canonical version of this file at CRAP HOUND DOT com slash place slash download dot.

So much more of a threat than someone taking your work and not giving money for it. Listen I love it when you give me money from my work. It feels validating and helps me feed my family. It is how survive as an artist but the only way people are GonNa do that is if they know I exist. The only way people are going to buy Corey's books if they know Corey exists so hopefully today he and I are teaming up on something that helps both of us sell books sell podcasts. Create fans do the sorts of things that artists have been doing forever and ever and ever to build community? So thank you for being part of this community and I sincerely hope you enjoy return to pleasure island from a place so foreign and eight more return to pleasure island by Corey.

Then layered with stripes of blue and green he reached for the nipple that dispense to the sprinkles but before he turned it spaghetti said. Are you sure you don't WanNa dip to Fudge butterscotch strawberry? The boy bounced even higher so that he was nearly vaulting the counter. All three all three he said George expertly spiraled the floss through the dips then apply to thick crust of sprinkles. Open your mouth kid. He shouted with Realistic Glee. The boy opened his mouth wide. So that the twinkling lights of the mid way reflected off his back molars and the pool of saliva. On his tongue. Georgia's quick clever. Left hand dipped a long handled spoon into the hot fudge then flipped the sticky gob on high arc that terminated perfectly in the boys open mouth. The boy swallowed in laughed Guli. George handed over the dripping confection in his strong right hand and the boy plunged his face into it when he world and ran to rejoin his friends. George saw that his ears were already getting longer and is delighted. Laugh had sounded a little like a bray. A job well done. He thought and watch the rain spattered. The spongey rubber cobbles of the midway. George was supposed to go off shift at midnight. He always showed up promptly at noon but he rarely left as punctually. The soft one who had the midnight to six shift was lazy and late and generally staggered in twelve. Thirty grumbling about his tiredness. George knew how to deal with the soft ones though his father had brought him up surrounded by them so that he spoke without his father's thick accent so that he never inadvertently crushed their soft hands when he shook with them and so that he smiled. Good naturedly and gave up a realistic facsimile of sympathy when they griped perennial gripes. His father how wise the old man had been and how proud and how stupid Georgia Chuck does uniform backstage. Toss it into a laundry hamper noting with dismay how Brown the insides were. How much of himself had eroded away during his shift? He looked at his clever left thumb and his strong right thumb and tasted they're good earthy tastes and then put them away. He dressed himself in the earth colored dungarees and work shirt that his own father had stolen from a laundry line when he left the ancestral home of Georgia's people for the Society of the soft ones. He boarded a cast member. Tram that ran through the utilities underneath pleasure island's midway and stared aimlessly at nothing as the soft ones on. The tram gambled away as the trams sped away to the cast housing and then it was just him and the conductor all the way to the end of the line to the cottage he shared with his two brothers bill and Jo. The conductor wished to a good night when he debunked and he shambled home. Bill was already home napping in the pile of blankets. All three brothers shared in the back room of the cottage. Joe Wasn't home yet even though his shift finished earlier than theirs he never came straight home instead. He wandered backstage watching the midway through. The People's jobs lead had spoken to George about it and Georgian spoken to Joe. But you couldn't tell Joe Anything. George thought of how proud his father had been having three sons three George the son of his strong right thumb and bill.
