"The police was a catchy slogan. It's also why policing bill fell apart by philip elliott. This article is part of the dc times politics newsletter. Richard nixon had an energy crisis on his hands as he began. What would be his last year. As president arab members of the oil cartel opec had quadrupled prices for the united states to protest. Washington's support for israel in the ongoing conflicts in the middle east and the costs at the pump for americans was mind blowing. The interior secretary was telling americans to prepare for blackout says. The country was going to be short. A million barrels of oil every day there weren't many holiday light displays. During december of nineteen seventy-three as christmas carols came with brownouts so nixon began nineteen seventy four with a quick trip to his office near his san clemente california ranch to sign a law that required states to reduce their speed limits to fifty five miles per hour or face being cut off from federal highway dollars. The move was meant to encourage drivers to reduce their speeds to levels believed to be more energy efficient. Nixon couldn't summarily create a national speed limit. But he knew how to dangle the highway dollars as an incentive. Fiscal blackmail is a favourite and efficient tool in washington and has been for. Decades states are used to it whether it comes in the form of testing requirements in schools under george w bush a consistent drinking age in bars under ronald reagan or motorcycle helmets on the roads under gerald ford. All republican presidents. it's worth noting. Washington can always tell folks beyond the beltway what to do but it can still get results through quid-pro-quo. At least that is when such a shakedown. Isn't already poisoned. By almost two years of demagoguery and sloganeering which brings us to just one of this week's political collapses of federal overhaul of policing practices. Senator tim scott a south carolina. Republican and senator cory booker a new jersey. Democrat had been working for months on a bipartisan series of changes for how police departments behave alongside representative karen bass a california democrat. The group made significant headway.

"karen" Discussed on Ask Women Podcast: What Women Want
"Exactly. I think first we have to make a distinction for those who didn't hear it. Between complaining and criticizing. Because I think when a woman is criticizing a man, he doesn't want to stand for that. And he generally doesn't want to lead through it. He wants to let her know, hey, this doesn't work for me. So a criticism is when she's disparaging of your character, you know, you're a loser. You can't get anything done. You know, that kind of thing. Then you simply want to say to her look, I'm not going to stand for your criticizing me. If you want to talk about something, I'm here to talk about it. I'm here to listen, but I'm not going to stand for this. And I always suggest that men just walk away. You don't need to do a big confrontation. You don't need to scream. As soon as you get really angry and escalate, you've lost power. It's the way that I see it. When a man, well, I don't love this word, but we use a correct a woman in that way. You know? And he lets her know like I have boundaries. There's a line here as to what I will and will not put up with. She respects him more. And then because we're sensitive and we actually don't want to hurt men, we'll tend to apologize for that kind of behavior. If a man puts up with that over and over and that continues through the years, and that becomes the way that they relate, a man can say to a woman look. Rather than complain when you need something, I'd really prefer you just ask me. Now, is this going to change her immediately? Probably not. But it will encourage her to think about, look, I can really get my needs met more so and better when I just ask him for what I want. And he's eager and willing to help. So that's one

"Good morning karen. Many good morning motorcycle goes by my house. Let's do it again. Monica morning again. I didn't hear okay motorcycles. Coming back. I live on a very busy street. How you. I am so good. I'm so glad you're doing this this morning i <hes>. I know a little bit about tara. i've done. I did a reading. I'm going to tell you this story. My own personal story. I have a friend whose wife does this. And when i first heard about it. I thought like a lot of people this is not just fanciful nonsense and you know like a fun. Little aside thing. I i didn't believe and i decided well i don't i'm not going to disbelieve. Believe until i see something. So this is when i was doing stand up a lot and it was my career and one of the cards. I'll never forget this card came up and it was a guy <hes>. Jumping off of a cliff into the dark. it was. it was a career card for whatever reason. I don't know how this works. But and she looked up at me and she said you're going to have a really big career change. I had not thought about it. i'd had not explored it. I didn't have any intention of doing that. I went what are you talking about. So i was sure at that point that it was nonsense. Well several months later this was you know back. Twenty five years ago. The bottom kind of fell out of the standup scene. And i was making a lot less money and there were outlets gigs. And i <hes>. I sent an email to tom. Arnold who was getting a tv show called the jackie. Thomas show and asked him for a job. I had never written on a sitcom in my life. I i wrote jokes. So i call them up. Which something. That's not something i ever did. It was just out of desperation for income and he said no i my. I'm staffed up but you can start on roseanne in three weeks. So that was my first job as a tv writer and i remember thinking that card was right. I in this. This is less than six months later. There's your card there. I see the card is the fool card. She might have had a different deck but it is literally taking the leap into something else. It's the it's the first in the last card of the deck. It's there's a lot to be said for this stuff. I mean maybe they're just strong tendencies and you can. Obviously i could have not called the guy not taken the job. I could have done that. I suppose that was my free choice at that point but the fact that that possibility entered my brain that moment because she sat it and it just it just rested there in the back. I never thought about it until circumstances changed. So i know you're doing a lot of readings. I'm doing a lot of talking. And i wanna hear. That's okay i can give you a good nation that will make you feel a little scientifically better about the cards because <hes> in there's i almost you know there's an effect that i wonder happens to because ladies come to me a lot that can't get pregnant and i will pull immediately like to pregnancy cards and she'll say no we've been trying for twenty years and i go. I don't know the problem is it's right here literally a call in a month. You're not gonna believe it. I'm pregnant happens all the time. In sometimes i wonder if subconsciously. I've given them permission to let it happen but the tero which is i'm sort of a terrible historian all the <hes>. Symbols the colors what they mean. I studied the cards for probably thirty years. I still get up every day and find a new book. Because i love them that much. But they're actually they call the archetypes that are that young talked about and the dream are sort of the same as a dream arc. Typeset that you would <hes>. You would actually be dreaming this same thing. In other words it all means the same thing. The high priestess would mean mystery in your dreams. So they're not just sort of cards that come out of nowhere. They sort of been built on the subconscious and psychology for many many years or vice versa. The cards built psychology but <hes>. It's it is coming from something. They they used to say. Somebody told the story that gypsies that didn't speak the same language used to carry different decks with them so they could come up to a different tribe in they could say showed him a picture of the medicine. Man showed him the picture of the magician so they could communicate through them but every time someone tries to say this is where they were developed. They find another car deck back further <hes>.

issues were running down the legal news of the week we're talking to all kinds of important people in and the most incredible thing that's going to happen is Roger banish is going to perform at halftime on my show so at eight o'clock which is the mid part of my show there's going to be a Roger baddest halftime show he does not know it yet I think he's a little worried I don't hear anything from the newsroom at all but she is going to be very entertaining as he usually is we do have a great show tonight we're going to be talking at seven thirty to an astrologer now do you believe in astrology is based in science my birthday is tomorrow and I was thinking and I always read my horoscope just for fun I used to study the astrology just a little bit and I'm wondering doesn't matter where our planets are aligned to the stars and the moon and Jupiter are those things that really because trends in society are those things are changing to the changer personality if you're born under certain signs I know out there are probably some people believe in this stuff and probably a lot of people don't but let's listen to what the premier astrologer in Chicago was going to say about what astrology means and how you can use it to maybe make your life a little bit better and understand some of the trends that might be going on that's at seven thirty and eight o'clock we are taking your legal questions as you know I'm a practicing lawyer and if you have any oceans at all about anything you will give me a call here at nine eight one seven two hundred three one two nine eight one seven two hundred or text to that number I will see if I can answer your legal questions and maybe in the process helped out some other people who I have the same question I also will be doing my little quiz at the end just before nine o'clock and will be kind of a run down of the week's news stories and we'll see how much you paid attention to the news stories I promise we're not talking politics or impeachment or viruses so we're going to stay in some topics that are a little bit more light hearted if you will but let's get going with our first topic which is something that I've been thinking about all week as you recall last Sunday Kobe Bryant died tragically in a plane crash the great best basketball player his his daughter died as did some several other people in this helicopter crash and what was interesting I mean you saw on the news Superbowl today there was a map of memorial they were having the morals at all different games and you saw people just with an outpouring of sympathy yet and they were crying in there were tears and I wonder why is it that we as people in our society more in it with such great feeling the loss of a celebrity what is it about us we don't know this guy we've watched him maybe we think we know him maybe we've route before him or maybe we admire him but what is it about his tragic death truly goes right to the heart of our emotions and with us to talk about that fascinating topic is doctor Patty Ashley a doctor actually is an international workshop presenter an author and speaker she's a psychotherapist who's going to give us some insight into the identification of why we feel so strongly about these issues doctor Ashley thank you so much for joining me how are you tonight well hi Karen I'm great how are you thank god so much happening good to have you here so let's just talk a little bit we were going to go to a break in just a little bit but I wanted to just your insight instinctively is this an uncommon thing to see people getting emotional about the death of a celebrity and if it isn't why don't we do it no it's really commented the archetypal we kill something in our bones that triggers us it feels like it's something we know but we really don't know so you know we feel we are hard to open there's an embassy in on and we really want to make sense out of something that doesn't make sense especially tragic sudden loss like we saw with Kobe Bryant are there certain celebrities that seem to evoke that kind of feeling more than others I think so you know and I think it really depends on the person because everybody has a certain character that they're drawn kill princess Diana for instance she in no doubt that morning went on for ever the flowers and the letters and the and and she did so much work you know in the world but she was also such a will family kind of situation that has stirred up big big questions in our lives and so I think really depends on you know the individual how much they're going to be touched by the person who dies like for me my favorite singer songwriter was cancel Burke went out for a long time yeah he's he's actually from Illinois I forgot what town it's not yeah Peoria's which is somewhat on state and he died also tragically young of a prostate cancer I believe and I don't know but about you but when I hear his songs wich are so beautiful I just I feel I can't help but feel sad because his life was cut so very short I would have loved to hear him now you know in his older years doing doing other ballots and other songs right and so that's a personal connection for years the music as it is for me so I'm gonna more not a little bit more sales big sports fan for instance with Kobe Bryant you know when their whole world is around sports and what that's about they get excited and then in something tragic like that happens I think they probably have a similar feeling like well I wanted to know what else he was going to do in this life and it was so sudden it could happen to me right right let's let's open the phone lines if anybody has felt something like this where you just talk you obviously don't know the person you've heard about it in the news is there's somebody who's really kind of just tugged at your heart a death that you were kind of surprised yourself when we come back I am going to talk a little bit about someone who kind of touched me and I and I still look back and think how was it that I felt so strongly about the death of somebody who I didn't know nine eight one seven two hundred three one two nine eight seven two hundred and we're talking with Patty Dr Patti Ashley and we're talking about grief to we're gonna get to morph into another topic which is very important to talk about him which is dealing with grief dealing with the loss of loved ones and how may be some tips to make you feel a little bit better you're listening to WGN this is Karen how to show coming.

out of what is going on legally speaking but right now the story I think is one of the nicest stories that I've ever had the privilege of covering in this time of giving where everyone's giving a we're talking about giving this is a story that tops the mall when it comes to just plain generosity I heard the story and I'm gonna try not to break into tears talking about it thirty one year old navy veteran out ritual Schultz from Harvard Illinois I was diagnosed with thought six kidney disease and she had stage five kidney disease she took matters into her own hands and she created a massive campaign to get a kidney flash ahead there's twenty seven year old Nicole gabber Rick a leak more police officer who's on a night shift and she just so happened to see a post on Facebook about

last but I'm gonna talk to Rachel for a minute reach will tell our listeners a little bit about your condition and why you needed a kidney so badly well as you said being a thirty one year old usually you don't really expect to get that kind of diagnosis you know in your I would actually twenty eight when I was diagnosed initially and at that time it was age three and at that point in time I was told within three to five years I would need a kidney transplant and at that point it was kind of surreal you know you get that kind of news and it's like wow what lake one of my supposed to do I'd never heard of kidney disease no one in my family had it anything like that so being the kind of person that I am to get into my own hands to learn as much as I could about the type of disease that I had which is the technical term is I dieta property but it's commonly called burgers disease than at the specially where your body attacks itself with an auto immune disease and it specifically attacked your kidney so for a few years so last year around I think was the fourth of July is when I actually started on dialysis I progressed far enough to where both of my kidneys were functioning

"Karen. Hold on. I think I heard something. Just this is just again. You can't. Also, he's starts affecting business badly. For example. He started downsizing checks, not because they didn't have enough money, but because the Bank, did not recognize his signature anymore. That's how fucked up was when he was signing checks. Cool. That's a bad sign. Finally he had. He went to May's oyster house on Polk street with a gun with a gun though. No. He had the first part. Yeah. He wanted to shoot open some oysters it maze. So when he had to be disarmed at maze. They said how about you? Don't come into work anymore, and co workers, family and friends were all turning to Jim saying that he was the one that had to solve the problem. In fact, argues ex wife Karen called her brother on February. Eighteenth nineteen Ninety-one after she was forced to get a restraining order, that only allowed already to see his children under court supervision, UAE. So she'd had to send the kids over to his house on the weekends, and then he was so fucked up that like she was worried about them, and they basically had to get some intervene. And so, again, she tells Jim, you have to do something about Artie, but already didn't like being the one with the problem. So he argued that everyone at the theater did drugs and drank and was fucked up in smoke pot and shotguns the ceiling. So Why's he them on getting picked on? And he begins leaving taunting messages on his brother's answering machine saying, I'm not the only one that needs to quit something because you smoke. I mean smoking coasts. No, it's true. Not back down though. Back then it was still super chill. So now already is not only not helping theater, but then he's fucking with Jim, and Jim has to handle everything and do it without his brother. So it's February twenty seventh nineteen Ninety-one already is living on mohawk avenue and quarter Madeira with his girlfriend of nine months. Julie bay auto. She was a twenty seven year old ex Farrell theater dancer, who had to quit because of a knee injury, which you don't think about that. Yeah. Physical toll that it takes on the knees and joints. So Ardito always said he had an open door policy at his house, which literally meant he left his front door unlocks every night, because he wanted to make sure that all his party friends had a place to stay if they needed somewhere to go and steal his money. Yes, maybe threatened him physically, so that night, February twenty seventh at ten fifteen Ardy. Julia are in bed, and they hear the front door open, and then someone banging around in the living room. So it isn't totally out of the ordinary until they hear gunshot. And so Archie gets up to see who it is. He grabs an empty beer bottle for protection, Julie jumps into the closet to hide. She hears Ardy yell. What's going on? Who's out there as he walks into the hallway and then six more gunshots? Ring out, Julie reaches out from the closet, grabs a phone calls the police, and as luck would have it officer can't Hoss was making a traffic stop right around the corner when that call came in so he pulled onto mohawk drive. He parked couple of doors down from the address that was given. And he sees a man with a limp walking down the street carrying an umbrella. And it had been raining around that time. So that wasn't too weird, but he still thought he should at least question. This person. So he ordered the man to stop. And instead, the guy real, quick, duck down behind a car and started pulling at the waistband of his pants scary for tons of reasons. So officer hostels tells the man to stop or he'll shoot and the man complies and puts his hand up. And when backup arrives, they pull the man up from his hiding place. It's Jim Mitchell, and he's got a twenty two rifle shoved down his pants leg. In any also has a thirty eight in a holster underneath his jacket and inside the house. His brother already is lying dead in the bathroom doorway. He's been shot in the shoulder in the torso and through his right? I only with twenty two Jim Mitchell is arrested and charged with the murder of his brother. And of course within hours, a media circus ensues. So this was right on the right on the cusp of Court TV and they actually in this during this trial had an argument, whether or not, they should air this on television. Because of course, had everything was like siblings, born and more. Do you want? That's plenty. So this infamous trial begins on January thirteenth nineteen Ninety-two. The courtroom is filled with cops strippers entertainment tonight, producers, Phero theater patrons and employee's. And at least one porn actor. You gotta hope there was one person who was all of those things. Yeah. You know Mary Hart. Okay. Don't tell her I said that they all watch us person after person testifies that Jim Mitchell loved his brother. He was closest friend, and he was only going over Ari's house for an intervention that escalated into a heated fight, and then in a fit of rage. Jim decided to put Artie out of his drug addled misery. That's the story that the defense tries to mount but the prosecution counters this theory because of that were true. Then why did Jim park blocks away from mohawk avenue? So no one would see his car. And why did he bring to guns and why did he shoot his brother seven times? With three hits. And why did he slash RT's tires before he entered the house, lots of questions? Very good valid questions. According to the these actions told the story of premeditated, murder, not a heat of the moment. Accidental death. But when the verdict came in the power of the Mitchell brothers, and their legend in the city came through because the jury throughout the first degree murder charge and found Jim Mitchell guilty of voluntary manslaughter. How at his sentencing notable? San Francisco figures like former mayor Frank Jordan, a former police chief, Richard hunk, honky stow, and sheriff Michael Hennessey all speak on Jim's behalf vouching for his good character literally, the opposite of every single obscenity trial that they had to sit through in the seventies, where all the politicians and law enforcement accused, Jim and Artie of ruining the city Jim Mitchell at the end of that sentencing is sentenced to six years in San Quentin. Wow. Here's a some pictures. That's him in the court with his courtroom with his lawyer. Oh those guys watching the game up there. That was the weirdest Gulf clap of all time. Courtroom shed. And this is this is what I love. This is an out of order, like time wise, this is clearly from a seventies or early eighties trial that they had to go to. But I just like that picture of him think it's kind of haunting beautiful and it would play him. I don't know who has insanely round glasses. Like just bring glasses and you can play him. If you can get those glasses again. So Jim serves just over three years in San Quentin and is them. Yeah. He immediately returned to the pharaoh theater to continue managing it. And he sets up the Artie fund which raises money for a local drug rehab center, as well as for the surf rescue squad of the San Francisco fire department who had in nineteen ninety saved RT's life when he had been carried out by riptide trying to save his own kids who he thought downing do not swim in San Francisco beach area. It's cold. It's saltier the normal seawater, and it's trying to kill you all the time, especially if you're very young, Jim Mitchell, eventually, retires to farm on the outskirts of a little town. I like to call head a Luma California. We have him. Oh. Known a writer. Lloyd bridges fuckin- guy fealty. Snoopy. Snoopy lives there. Okay..

"Fees. Exactly, you you have some semblance of privacy. So trust is a really good tool to use that which you say, it is it's it's very popular with a lot of people. Even if I'm so some people will do it to protect from estate taxes, which here in Illinois. We have a four million dollar per person exemption there are simple trust. And then there are more complex trust to avoid paying taxes. Charitable giving. You know, there are a lot of things that you can do. But a trust is preferred because people like to know that they have control of their assets and that at their death. It's gonna go exactly the way that they want it to go without having to go through the probate process. I hear a lot of people Ron to say, oh, I'm just going to put the house in my children's name or I'm just going to put my children's names on accounts. And then when I die they will have that account or that that that asset that can backfire though, can't it. Absolutely. So if you name any person on any account of yours are home of yours their creditors can attach that property if they're an owner on your property, and they get sued instead. Absolutely. If they are going through a divorce, we typically will discourage that I mean, most married people have things jointly held, but to name your kids is not always a great idea. The other thing is we see is people at the last minute will add their kids onto the deed of their home. And what they don't realize is that the kids are going to have to probably pay some capital gains taxes because the general rule is that you get what's called a step up in basis. So if you give something to someone at your death. They get it at the value as of your date of death. Now if you put them on while you're living. They don't get the full value of of that gift. So you have to be really careful and make sure you speak with your legal adviser about the best thing to do. So the bottom line is by putting your children's names on your house, for instance, you could have tax ramifications creditors could get it or God forbid, there's. A divorce? The ex spouse could come and say, maybe that that they are titled to a portion of it not that it could happen always will happen. But there's a possibility exactly couple taxed and please. I'm going to give the numbers out again nine eight one seven two hundred any legal questions at all. But in particular, if you have one about estate, planning wills trusts, and those types of things Ron Johnson is here answering those questions we have texture from the two six two, Eric what was co trustee with my mother suggested by her attorney and the banker as they all knew I would do what my mother wanted. I love your program. Once again, I asked her if it worked out she to get back to me, but we were talking about having a co trustee in you know, it can work out you can work out. Absolutely. And people know their their children best. You know, if if you think that the two would help each other out, then then it's a fine idea. We Karen, and I just see, unfortunately, the bad scenarios that that come about. And so it's something we want you to be aware of there's also the situation where sometimes. People want to name maybe a Bank or trust company to be a co trustee because they feel like that would help their child, you know, out with financial decisions with being organized one can do one one job. And then the other one can do another job. So in a lot of situations that is helpful because if you think that your tab would be overwhelmed, there are corporate fiduciaries that will act as trustee or executor and the texture did get back to me and said, it's a lot of work. But well worth learning for me. And it is a lot of work. It's a lot of responsibility. And I've been a trustee for family members. And even as an attorney because this is what I do for a living. I take care of things and I take care of problems. But it's it is it is emotional you're dealing with beneficiaries who may be related to you're dealing with with Bank accounts. And you need to make sure that things are handled a better than your own better than your own business. Absolutely. You're held to a very high standard and for people out there who are trustees. And who are executors, you know, you can't cross the line. You can't commingle money. You can't take money for your own benefit. And if you do there's some serious ramifications absolutely for that, and including some elder elder fraud and things like that, which I've seen some states attorneys. Take an interest a little bit communication and transparency are the best things that atrocity can do. That's right communicate with the beneficiaries. They know what's going on. They're not suspicious that there's something that they don't know about you know, so communicate with them and be open. There's no reason why you shouldn't. That's a good point. Because a lot of the complaints. Are. I don't see the Bank accounts. I don't know what my is doing. He won't tell me. He will call me up.

And we're going to be talking about news stories in an out of the news this week and legal questions if anyone has legal questions, we're going to take them all throughout the show for two hours. So they have legal questions or comments, maybe on some new stories that you've read that you're concerned about today of questions about just give us a call here. Nine one seven two hundred. I'm just going to bring John. Hey, john. How are you? Hello. How are you care? He's never done a show together. I don't think we have been on Steve show a couple of times. I think we wrote a song together song together. And and I like to write my political parodies. And you're kind enough because if I sang them, they would be funny. Not for the words. But for me singing. So that's funny. That's exactly what they laugh at. That you would bring up. So what welcome. And you know, I guess I want to just ask you like how you know. You're a stand up comic. And you know, I come from a background where my father was was a stand up comic. And I just find it. Interesting to study, how comedy has changed especially in the days. Now, we have such political correctness and people so offended by things. Can you tell me like are there certain things that you can do now that you may be couldn't do twenty five years ago and certain things that you can't do that. You could do is it changed as much as I think it has. I think it definitely has changed. I don't think it's about what you can do. Now that you could that's different because it's really so much has changed. You can't do so many things. Now, there are there are comedians who will do anything at anytime, and it doesn't matter, and that's just what that's the people gravitate towards them that they like that. I have always been. Very very, no issues. I don't wanna offend anybody. Anything like that? So I played pretty straight for thirty six years now. And you know, it's funny. You did bring up the fact that you're history there and for anybody listening. We were talking about your your father Joe, and I just sent you a phone had that long ago from his album, right, which how many albums did he have he only one album, and it was filmed back in the late fifties or early sixties at a place called Mangum Chateau, which was a place in Lyons, Illinois, it was a swanky nightclub. They had probably three cells during Friday's and Saturday's my father was a headliner. So he introduced all the guests. They would usually have magicians they'd have singers. They have a line of girls who dance and my dad worked there for years and years and years, it was probably the only real steady job. Sure. So so it was filmed, it was tapes there, and it's all the old one liners. That's and that's how I got my start. I was one of the I was actually one of the girls that s which oh that's how I I met. Joe Saalbach is cleavage. And thank God. I have plenty of that. How great was that that I saw that album? And I think about that because I worked with your father. I actually worked at wackos in Berlin. Yes. And just you know, it's one of those things I'm a big throwback. So it was it was quite a pleasure. And and definitely an honor. And I'm not kidding to work with him. And he was I hope he was a nice dad because he was a soup. He was super nice nice nicest guy know, there's a lot of people show businesses. You know, who are not the nicest people or they're insecure their petty and selfish and stealing jokes. Dad was always the person who would help a young comic and say, hey, why don't we work on this? And maybe you can use this. And and he was always very good. Because you know, he went through a lot. I mean, he started out as a child actor in Hollywood when he was very young. And he was in a movie called east of the river with John Garfield. And then he became one of the dead end kids, which then became the Bowery, boys. Yes. And he was not. A big one of the big ones. He was kind of a peripheral character was in three or four or five of the cereals. And so that's how he really got his start, and he was tapped answer. And so he's saying and tap danced. And that sorta just moved into the whole comedy thing. But but he going back to being clean or doing risky things. You know, my father back in the day. Fifties sixties seventies. You couldn't work if you were going to be doing off color things. I mean, if you you certainly couldn't work a convention or a bar mitzvah or something like that you had to keep it very clean and keep it, very known ethnic jokes. No, real racy sexual jokes. And and that's how you kept a job is is is is you appeal to everybody. And it's not that different today. Because the fact that I'm able to do corporate work and theater work and stand up clubs, and and here's the thing your father. I remember what he told me, and I did not think of it as that big of a deal at the time. But he pulled me aside at wackos, and he said you closed I was headlining. He goes. Hey, I really liked that you were not blue blue meaning dirty at all. And I don't I'm very clean and myself. And I didn't think that was that big of a deal. That's just what I do. But today, that's why I'm able to do everything in anything because I'm clean. However, the people that you see skyrocket and get on TV shows and stuff like this or or getting specials on Netflix. Guys. I've I love, and I think are very funny and women too. But they are they can be very blue. And they can be very, and they just skip the line and go they don't care about the corporate. They don't care about that. It's just a different. It's a different time. Did your father right his own material? Or was that he wrote some of it. And he would you know, alter certain things, I mean, he had been in the business for so long that you know, there's no such thing as a new job just to audience. Right. So he would take an old joke from vaudeville back. He was he entertained the troops in World War Two. He was in special forces where he went all across all over the world with a group of people who were saxophone players and a female, impersonator and dancers and singers, and they put on shows for for the for the troops. And so he has such a day he had such a depth of of knowledge of jokes and old jokes. And so he could retool them to say that he actually wrote them. He probably doesn't eat just change them. But he did have the back of the day. They had newsletters that you could subscribe to that would have got topical lines. Sure orbin was the big one. And a lot of the a lot of the comics got his lines. And then they retool those as well. So it was you know, he he had some so many jokes that even given act. He probably wouldn't have to repeat them. And he was probably forced because they would have the same audience all the time. They may not leave or that. You know, we get we get one show. They everybody leaves. We come back. We can do the same set. Right. Or I traveled to another town, and they don't know from today. So it's, but it's funny when I worked with your dad, and I work with them. I think probably five times is what I remember. And when I worked with him. I remember a younger comedian kind of Scoffing at him because he's this one liner guy, and what a throwback and yet. He did really well the audience really laughed at your dad. Joe did really well. And it's like, how can you not see an old guy up there? And you think what's this guy gonna do? You know, he's been he's been doing it for forty years by the time you met him. So he was a professional. I mean, you know, this is what he did is he put food on the table. Do. I look like I'm under. I mean, really, you know. So so, yeah, there's there longevity there and someone asks what's his name? I love joined the cast someone says, then I love John. That's my dad's name was Joe Conti joke. I was gonna say Richard Pryor. But I guess that wouldn't be funny. I know you never know. Anyway, we're talking about we're talk. We're gonna talk about the cold, John, and I are going to do some dueling. How cold is it chokes? If anyone has any any tips for surviving the cold or any little tricks that you have for for staying warm. Give us a call here. We wanted to talk about it. Or if you have any funny, how does it chokes give us a call nine eight one seven two hundred when it comes to the weather.

"karen" Discussed on Car Talk
"Oh, and sheep cheap. It's a deal. All four of them off four. Oh yeah. Four and my question is, do I really need these things? Can I put on. The the basic Pathfinder shocks, not these adjustable thing. That's a good progress. Excellent. Question. Thomas people name. Thomas always come up with the brilliant. Insightful question. I totally agree with. I knew you would. Because if you are going to avoid replacing the shocks because of the price and one of the options is to get a less expensive and fewer bells and whistles shock, shark absorb is very crucial to the safety of you and the vehicle, because if you don't have jock absolve, is that work, then the cop, bounces all over the road, and you really have very poor control and it happened. So gradually, you don't even realize it. First of all, it's unconscionable of you two hundred. You realize it yours, we're gone. If it does happen that gradually what give you a hint, somebody got in the in the car with them. When we go over the speed bumps that are near my house, you come down right? I'm bald and skin. Wiz. He was here a minute ago. Shine his head really at, and we're going to go take a trip up near your way in a couple of weeks or fall foliage, and I want to be sure that you know we, we're pretty safe up there. Yeah. I mean, I'm taking my mom with us and I don't wanna have gone through the roof to know. St. a question is, yes, yes, you don't have to put in these. Are you married? Well, not technically not. Are you taking a woman friend who's gonna sit in the front seat with you, mom or she? Oh, good. All her. This. Now, sean. You put your finger on the nub of this whole issue here. Yeah. Wow. Mamoulian sit up front. So what's what you grow friend's name, Karen, Karen, sit in the back with the golden retriever. The Rottweiler gonna lead to my next question. Put onto to. And then the question is, should you put him in the front so mom can have them or in the back. So Karen can have the bright, you know, Tom, you're getting yourself into a lot of trouble here. The first mistake you made is inviting your mother. That's all right versus Karen. I mean, how important is this relationship to Karen? It's rock solid. You'd have to have her house important to you? Important? It's important is okay. I would. I would very, very strongly recommend that you alternate the front-seat maybe even have one of them. Dr. He, I have Karen dry in the back and stick you in the back. That would be really good. And I, I would make sure that mom got the backseat occasionally. Otherwise, Karen is not gonna feel equal, right? And she certainly deserves to feel equal does get along with the Rottweiler. Find out. Yeah, definitely. Alternate. I didn't mean the Karen was the Rottweiler. Sweet. I know that guys. I've talked to several dealers get different stores, they know carrying, no. Oh, oh, you talk to them about the show? I went back to the shock. I, I think you can safely put. I don't think there's any difference. Truthfully. I've never done it, but I'm pretty sure if they will bolt up. You can safely put in the conventional shocks. Tell me they won't even fit and others say they'll fit, but it won't be as good a ride. I don't honestly know the adjustable. Sharks may come with different springs. In other words, that whole suspension system may be different. And if it is, then you probably have to bite the bullet and go with the with the, the shocks of the vehicle came and it's really important to the safety of the trip. If you're going on a long trip, you want shocks that work, right? Especially if you're gonna have Karen and mom in the same vehicle, believe me, you want shocks work. It'll make the trip, Mike, who's the Rottweiler Stotts Pukhan then the trip is really, really uncomfortable. Good luck, Tom. All right. Thank rotate that front seat. Man. One eight car talk or one eight, two, two, seven, eight, two,.
