How Will Babies Born During the Pandemic Meet the World?

"Jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story. Dr sherri madigan associate professor psychology. Department of the university of calgary she holds a candidate research chair in determinants of child development. Hello dr megan. thanks for having me. You are most welcome i will tell you. We got the idea for this episode. from a listener. Who wrote us with a question. Can i begin by asking you that question. Yes sounds great. So this is a listener unnamed. Diana who wrote that. I've had a baby during the pandemic and he is about to start daycare. He has not been held by anyone. Outside of our household no other adults have ever cared for him although my parents would have loved to help travel restrictions during the pandemic prevented them from visiting. I'm worried for what this means for his socialization. So should she worried. Well it's a really good question actually a common one so this has been a topic. I've been asked to actually speak on a few times. Because i know that parents are thinking a lot about this and worried i guess what i would say is that it is going to be a little bit difficult for kids to transition into a daycare environment. Because it's going to be so new and novel to them now. The reality is that kids always find it hard transition into a daycare environment because it's new and novel to them so that's not different than how life was pre pandemic but i think the big difference now when kids are are doing that switch over into day care is that they haven't had a lot of interaction with other people and they're going to be thrusted into an environment where everything is really really knew and the interactions are really new.

"Terms of vaccine equity they're improving. Do you believe that it's hard to say because first of all i did a report on a couple of weeks ago when you look at the city's numbers the numbers are an estimate and they're still in with Extreme inflammation. The code is such. Because you're not required to list your ethnicity or any other information that identifies who you make so. The city is using a formula. I think it's By loyola universe speech and try to fill in the gap about who is actually getting the vaccine. Secondly the city claimed that when you look at the numbers majority of the people that were being vaccinated were medical professionals and most of those medical professionals of north sides along the lakefront in those areas where you have the higher numbers the question i have is. If you go to the hospital. And i've been twice in the last three years. Having children the majority of the people that work in the hospital are not necessarily doctors and nurses there the technician. You have other frontline workers who don't necessarily live on the north shore. So those days should also be vaccinated but the question becomes. Are they not being bad today. Did for fear or concerns about this vaccine if you're listening to the community. There's a lot of concerns about whether this vaccine is they so talking to different Community activist and Representative of leshan ford as well as other doctors they hate there has to be an education campaign as well. It can't just be the open a vaccination center and say oh everybody's gonna come. That doesn't work that way. If you don't explain to people why they need this vaccine why it safe and answer any other questions that they may have not going to get a high today. She rate because people do remember the disparity in the black and latino community and specifically experiments that were conducted on black people in this country. Not too long ago. Don't you you have to not only have the vaccine available to explain. Blame the safety issues. That go along with the vaccine. Certainly lots of skepticism in those communities. And i know educational outreach has been a big part of the the roll out here. The vaccine at dean reynolds. It seems like forever ago but we're only six days From the impeachment acquittal of former president donald trump What is the the knee jerk. Political fallout here for both parties. I think from the democrats point of view they were able to tarnish Former president trump's legacy that may have been the primary goal all along because going into this. They pretty much knew that the republicans were not going to go along in adequate numbers To remove the president or to convict him disqualify him from the republican point of view. It's other. it's much more difficult. Because the party is cleaved between the establishment and the primary voters the people who actually go to the polls in these primary elections and select the candidates. That's they're divorced from the actual. Republican electorate much larger group of republicans in that in that group. But you have the mitch. Mcconnells and the marjorie taylor. Greens on opposite sides. You have kevin mccarthy trying to bridge the gap sort of triangulation. You know between his house members The senate under mitch mcconnell and president trump. But you know i have to think that a lot of republicans wish that they could move on A certainly elected republicans and they don't vote that way necessarily but that's what you hear on background but certainly seems to be a difference between the grassroots republicans at the state and local level who who have been steadfastly loyal to president trump who are censoring members of the party that are that are that have gone against trump Like adam and the gop representative from just south of here. So michael point day kindergarten again called out today by the will county republicans. Do you think he's going to gain traction in this fight that he's launched here to to take the republican party away from trump It's going be an uphill clients because president trump and a lot of circles is still very popular. They still like the way he lead the country. You know a lot of folks on the left as you know. Didn't like what he did know but at the same time he remains very popular. So it's only going to take time to see what happens. It seems like he's really an climb may want to consider. How can you see where you'll be a lot of republicans who might support him and yeah go ahead yeah In ben sasse the senator from nebraska made a good point. He said that he talks to a lot of republicans in his state and he doesn't find any of them to be as far right as the party officials the people who are doing all the censoring and i would think that. That's probably what's going on in a lot of these states. Certainly in louisiana against senator cassidy and others so that they're calculating that a lot of their voters really aren't as far right as these politicians. That are censoring dana kozlov. I'm see adam. Kensinger and atlantic in the new york times and the washington post launching this country. I pack. is there a risk overexposure here. And perhaps should he. As michael point they said maybe go to where republicans are because unfortunately in this bifurcated media world people have different. Persuasions are watching different outlets. so perhaps kindergar- needs to go to fox news. That's not really a question as to you. Data wasn't much of a question. Are you asking me to be his adviser. No my point is there is a risk of over exposure here just constantly out there in the press making this case you know there's always a risk but i also that it also has down to timing and what people want to hear and who wants to hear what and i think right now is definitely a lot of interest in what he has to say and in who's jewelry him as a result to his family yes yes his family but the eleven numbers in that handwritten letter But i i have to say this. It is refreshing in my opinion politics aside to see him and hear him speak his mind. Now what is ulterior motives. Are you know we can all discuss too. But i do say that is refreshing but certainly there is always a risk of over odor and again people can turn on a dime right. Hugh one day and not like you the next week. And it's the same point you made earlier about Governor pritzker who knows where the electorate is going to be in six months or a year depending on what happens everybody has a short attention span in lots of things change And that is all the time we have. Unfortunately my thanks to mike point day. Tanya francisco dana kozlov and dean reynolds. Thanks so much for joining us and before we go a personal note. We want to extend our thoughts to wtt w development. Manager alex pencil.

"Report. I mean it's a huge. It was a huge scramble. The you know the one thing i think about is the loss in veterans leadership at the police department. You had a lot of commanders deputy chiefs that had three plus years on the force that could have you know pulled him on the coattails and said you know in the past we've had situations by. We've done this we've done now. It's on this situation. And i think past experience is what prepares you for situations like this. She had the little climbed mcdonald's video when it was released now. I don't know if any of those veterans were there in the sixties in the seventies during the mlk of riots still. There is a history in the city of win writing start. It tends to spread into the neighborhood. So if you had had some veterans there in the leadership of the police department this is something that could have been Mentioned is discussion and moving forward but this is kind of starting to be a pattern. You know we take full responsibility for what we've done and we'll get better. We know we're not there yet. We're working on that. Where this you know the numbers keep sliding backwards you know. I don't know how much longer the city i regardless of the mayor. The city is going to accept those I don't wanna say excuses but reasons for failure on situations that both the average person predicted what would come about and at this point. Yeah go ahead. Yeah you know. If i remember right after the first of a round of riots and protests the first damaging round Back at the end of may beginning of june one thing. I reported on then And many alderman said was that the tried to reach out remember. Superintendent bron had only been superintendent for maybe a month or so act point but had said we were not listened to. We've been through this. We had concerns. We knew what might happen. In the neighborhoods and we tried to bring our concerns to the mayor's ration- to higher ranking police officials and they claimed back then they were shut down so that could be contributing factor to why things went so era Early on is because the folks who might be able to have lent some inside the community activists community leaders religious leaders the elected officials of awards. Several of them claimed they weren't listening. Was unrest unseen here by many community observers since the one thousand nine hundred sixty s entire mentioned all the brain drain all the top level commanders. That had left in this transition period. Also at the time. Dean reynolds brown was newly on. The job does does he wear the hat for for this. Or does he get sort of a pass. Because he's still kinda looking the city learning the police department. No i don't think he gets a pass at all. I mean he's the top guy and says responsibility. You can't walk away from that but the other part of that report was that they had lousy intelligence well. They would have had much better intelligence if they've been watching television and seeing the pictures come back from minneapolis. This affects after the. You know the death of george. Floyd i mean how they could not have foreseen This coming and not at least have been Ready in some way for it is is a mystery. And you know the other bad thing about the report. Is that while it's shocking. It's not surprising really. I mean you know the we've been down this road many times with the chicago police department and especially the leadership. We've tried outsiders. Gary mccarthy insiders eddie johnson and now back to an outsider david brown and it still keeps coming back to the same thing you know basically bumbling stumbling responses there's so much turnover over the years as you mentioned and oftentimes the superintendent of police department falls on the sword for the mayor as mccarthy did for manual after after the mcdonald situation. Michael point day. Another round of unrest happened later in the summer. Do you have confidence that the department has it under control now. Let's look at what's happening now. You've got an oath spike in carjackings. He can't really be there while they're worrying about what happened last summer. You gotta deal with the president and right now. The president is streets of chicago in some areas and some neighborhoods. Just aren't safe i. I covered a press conference last week about chicago restaurants. They're trying to open or trying to get more patrons in their restaurant but they also talked about the crime that's in and around the restaurants. The chicago pd. The city is doing enough to quell the violence. So while last year is in the focused right now. They've got to deal with the now if he doesn't get it on. The control could be certainly carjackings. They're up at an alarming rate. Right now. Let's move on to some other politics at the state level governor. Jay pritzker unveiled his budget without the usual pomp and circumstance at the state capital this year in address. He took aim at the gop. Take a look at what he and then republican leader. Jim durkin said in response two months ago. I asked republicans in the general assembly for their proposals to close this year's budget deficit. I was met with silence. Apparently their idea of bipartisanship ends when hard choices must be made. Governor keeps finding ways to blame republicans for as well as he says. Well we aren't willing to make hard choices. But i will remind you what we did more than two years ago as we've made our choices. But now he's going back on his word dana. We hate to talk about elections again because we just had one but this budget address comes as one. Republican throws his hat in the ring to run for governor against pritzker. Others are talking about it. Do you think Pritzker is going to sorta wear the hat for the pandemic response and and prep suffer politically. Because of it. You know this last year feels like twenty years so at least and so with that politically. Speaking people have short memories and it could. It could wear. That hat. could be a bad thing. But in another six months with insurance of the pandemic response and the governor. I believe when he says he has done what he believed was best for the state of illinois in majority of the time i mean in most ways but at six months if we are beyond the pandemic beyond shutdowns than folks who are angry now may not be for that. So if there's an economic recovery our unemployment rate drastically jobs. So i think the verdicts out on if this last year in particular both pandemic speaking and budget wise I think the verdict settled on on exactly what that's going to mean for the governor the next version and you're right Observers have short attention spans and in six months they might not remember any of this although it bears repeating that there are other governors facing trouble right now in new york governor cuomo california governor newsom for everything that's happened over the last year. Even though a lot of this who could have planned for Let's move onto some other. News vaccine distribution disparities continue to dog the roll out an investigation of the us postal service. Sluggish service here led by congressman. Bobby rush raises hopes for changes after former president. Donald trump is acquitted in a second impeachment trial this week.

"Laser on the businesses. Springfield never ran for higher office in a nineteen eighty three. He became speaker from there. He really began consolidating power out of the state house. And that's where it stayed. Dave madigan's career spans nine illinois governors nine chicago mayors eight presidents and he's held legislative super majorities in the house during several election cycles. But he's also been in charge through all of the state's recent budget woes. How would you describe his legacy. And how has he been able to hold onto his power for so long. I mean it's complicated. When it comes to legacy on him. I mean he he for democrats he definitely has strengthened the party. I mean it wasn't that long ago where we're all of suburban chicago used to be solid republican territory and that's all flip now to democratic Controlled areas and. It's a no small part to what madigan has done with his his house members because those district started turning in the mid nineties. He's presided over some of the biggest things that have come down the road here. I mean the abolition of the death penalty legalization of gay marriage. A big abortion rights. Package here in one of the more recent sessions. I mean he you drive along the dan ryan you look at it. guaranteed rate field. I mean that's their in large part because of michael madigan in in the same way with with solar field the flying saucer and the the old imprint soldier field. That's because in large part because of michael madigan so he's left his fingerprints all over the city of chicago and the state of illinois. And along with that you can't ignore the fact that illinois is in of all the states in one of the worst financial positions and he he's not solely responsible for that but he is the one thread of power that has remained through that entire time. When we have the worst funded pension systems in america. We have a backlog of unpaid bills. That's close to nine billion dollars. Mean a large part of that comes from the locking horns heated with bruce rounder during his term in office. But but still you know. The financial problems relate to to madigan in some way. He bears some responsibility for those things as well so you can't say enough about the imprint. That he has left in the state of illinois in a lotta ways. Madigan's set the tone for how politics operates in illinois. What gets passed. What doesn't get past and as we said he's been in that position for a very very long time my next questions for the both of you. How do you think state politics could change without him at the helm john. You first free. If he is not speaker there is just a string of things that will look. I think i don't to radically different but certainly significantly different One of his nickname springfield is the gatekeeper You know how that is for you. Get that name because of his control over. What legislation gets two committees and gets voted on. What does I think a lot of that would open up One of the things. I wanna make sure to mention is. We're just finishing with the census and we have a redistricting coming up. Michael manning. the speaker michael madigan above almost anything a lot of consolidation of power. That they was talking about is due to the fact that he has controlled redrawing that for decades in the states. If he's not the speaker that is something that will be a huge alaska obviously for the next decade. That's something that would really be significant. How the democrats tackle that 'cause they'd still be in control of it..

Even in that congressional district race in Springfield, the Democrat was linked to Mike Madigan. So what you have with this heightened scrutiny with Mike Madigan over the federal investigation of Kam ad and how comment has acknowledged that It gave jobs and contracts to Allah allies of Madigan and effort to win his favor. Madigan says he was unaware of it. He's never done anything for any personal name or guard Lis of that.

Do you know that it hasn't been called? And it won't be called Underwood released a statement saying that you know Let's respect the vote counting process. I'm not sure how money mail in votes were outstanding. And you know, as we talk about nationally with the presidential probably a little bit of patients here because Under Illinois law ballots postmarked by November. 3rd to be counted up until November, 17th two weeks and they're still valid, so when you get into those kinds of margins They were probably going to be some movement on a daily basis. Those ballots come in, but I don't know how many. How many mail in ballots are out there, But you could assume Democrats have always been stronger in their mail by mail ballot program that it could favour the Democrat among those returning I hear you're going to get a nap at all this afternoon.

Illinois Planning On Reinstating Drivers Licenses for Those With Non Moving Violations

"We're speaking of speaking of a larger cities in the state of Illinois Caroline and she's a Democrat representative lawmaker in Champaign we're talking about this plan to reinstate the driver's licenses of people who've lost them because they had done paid tickets non moving violations lot of parking tickets stack up next thing you know you've lost your driver's license you know it's a little surprised to be Carol I'll get to the criticism of this in a minute is that people evidently were complying with that that is their license get suspended so then they they do stop driving because they don't have a license is that what happens the majority of people not only do stop driving but they also lose their job because most jobs require a light in to work there sh and we saw that in forty two percent of individuals who lost their jobs it was due to suspension of their life some people say I'm I paid my ticket first of all I don't double park when I do I pay my fine and that's the way the game is played why are we why are we giving these people the break that I didn't get well you know it's interesting thing that we start in some of the research that we found not just in Illinois that injures in other places where you have significant income disparity you have to address this as a fair you government not at least of individual should we the moment that we're in right now and today happens to be the king holiday and change your mind that an unjust law is no law at all she and so if you have matched the disparity in income yes one person is Schomburg go L. hurt me because the pay their tickets with no problem but people who are just basically getting to or from work on public transit in trying to make sure they can feed their family on job cannot she hurt them in many many ways that others in Elmhurst the Schomburg may not understand and so it is important for us to look at equity it's important for us to look and stuff this and this was a significant so this issue because the majority of the suspension for black and brown people from the south and west side of Chicago and they were struggling to get from point a to point B. before their ticket or be for this expansion and and I also want to add that the city of Chicago this video Champaign or Urbana who signed it I did a parking ticket that may cost you thirty five cents and I I don't have any quarters mommy right so I spent that go along with the twenty five dollars who decided that that's what the penalty should be in the first place interesting question seven seven three said they can still boot you so that would be up to the municipality if they have a policy that your car sitting there it's got some tickets on it they boot your car that can still happen but you'll you will retain your driver's license do I understand that correctly Carol that is correct however I do believe that again we need to look at books and books is one of those things that I'm interested in studying as red as red light cameras all of the things that suck the kidneys and the cold out of the pocket the poor people we need to look at that government should not and this is the issue of liberty government should not you is the forty to abuse its citizens and this is what those kinda log do it abuse assistance I understand that and I don't even argue that but I do also hope you acknowledge that some of our listeners are thinking the citizens have an obligation to follow the laws and rules that everybody else is it will be more injurious to you if you don't have the means but we should all play by the same rules well we certainly are not playing by the same rules and I know we don't have time to argue that point yeah but clearly there's a disparity in income access and equity that no one can argue on either side of this this so we have to do what we can as legislators to bring justice and equity and balance balance all of the laws that we have been in this case this law as it currently existed prior to the final the bill did not met out equally and it certainly didn't represent justice clan had a question you're on WGN hi glad you're on the air why is it that a person who has the ability to pay the ticket why would they pay the ticket if there's no ramifications just because they're working and have the ability to pay they should feel some sort of just a moral responsibility to pay the debt I mean you're saying that it should be equal you're you're setting up to different levels of law for individuals based on their income and you know in your own words just said because people are poor they shouldn't be able to be struggling well the people who are wealthy enough to be able to pay the tickets shouldn't be penalized why are you setting you're setting a double standard in your own words that you don't want to do hi doesn't make sense why would I want to hold on hold on yeah yeah that's you're point go ahead good girl I actually I actually have an agreement with your caller I believe that people like you and I in your caller who pay taxes for the role that we drag one already that we already provide our income to the government to function and then on top of a government that something called meters are tollway make additional dollars I don't actually think it's right well that's how they maintain the roads I mean not good meters in tolls are going to go away I think that the principal point he's making is that if we're going to have forgiveness for people we should maybe have you know that that that won't be equitable that's not fair either then right I mean if you can't pay okay that's tough for you I'm sorry about that but I can so my the only one that has to pay but but that's not what we're talking about here you still owe the debt the point is are we going to let you keep your driver's license that's what this is about right at and we are going to let you keep your driver's license and I still do have to pay the ticket by the way yeah yeah even though they give amnesty to those who may not have all the money at one point they allow you to set up a realistic payment plan let's think about this previous payment plan if it is Chicago requires you to put down a down payment so it was always back yeah yes your color baby could pay the down payment but others really could not and that is a function of government government decided to put this except the down payment there sh and eight at the conditions for which a person could not pay sh and now we're saying no you cannot spend that like this sh the city Chicago is reforming how it is collecting your parking tickets so yes you still got to pay that parking ticket now well I I completely agree with you about setting a reasonable means for people to pay back if you have a hundred dollars in tickets you should pay a hundred dollars in tickets but it shouldn't now become a thousand dollars because you didn't get it done in time I'd be happy to get there I'd be happy to give fifty the hundred to be honest with you the these ballooning payments I you're right somebody just made that up and you might as well charge people a million dollars Hey Chicago want to charge him a million Bucks and then all of our financial problems will be solved no wait it won't because you can't get a million dollars from people they don't have it yeah I don't have it let's let's do you realize up in bankruptcy court yeah but what about this report but not me what about this Eric you're on hold on a second Eric hold on a second are cold on a second there hello did you get that Eric you have some say on the radio what was your point Eric said the parking meters Carol are there for a reason they're there because you don't you know you need you don't want people to be there all day long it's not just a money maker it's also a way to regulate flowed you understand that I I'm certainly understand that but I think you're you're a collar and others should look a little deeper into who owns the parking meters that is true we we so we should not have sold those things at the sky way along time ago I agree with you on that its it's goes into effect July first is that right representative that is correct that the jury stated putting provisions in place to notify those who would be eligible to have their eyes since reinstated and you go to took that chance July one twenty twenty nice to talk to you we you and I have not met before by the way do you have anything to say I was just reading in the Chicago Tribune over the weekend about how Mike Madigan has this gigantic series of funds that he's able to control and he spent over four hundred thousand dollars in legal fees in the last few months the Tribune has a large editorial it was it yesterday or today saying he should step down from his speakership role do you agree with that you know I have been here I have I'm from Champaign Urbana so I don't I don't get sick of it should be clear here but I have not seen that story I think what is happening in Springfield and you'll see in the spring fashion that there would be many people calling for significant reforms and ethics reforms and I think that will fall in that same category yeah well that's not you saying yes though I'm not saying yes to lose his job just stepped down as speaker you're not calling for that yet home yeah I don't have I have not seen it at all and I have been called for anything at this point but what I am calling for is that there needs to be significant reform and ethics as well as campaign finance reform took all of that it's all tied together that you're describing representative and it's nice to talk to thanks for joining us on

"Upward which Madigan warrants could lead to more toxic algae and eventually threatened the supply of drinking water for public news service. I'm Suzanne Potter. We used to have a program here on KPFA called freedom is at constant struggle. Us to air at six thirty on Sundays and had a rotating roster of hosts one of whose names was Frank talk. And boy, did they let it talk. It was. Show a about activism and politics, radical politics. Radical activists grassroots activists of history and the present day, and what people wanted to happen. And what people thought about what was going on in the country. Freedom is the constant struggle. Community radio is a constant struggle listener, sponsored radio is a constant struggle to. Constant struggle to raise the amount of money that we need to keep this radio station on the air, and it is especially difficult a difficult constant struggle for KPFA. And I wanna tell you why partly that is. It's just a hard sell. I mean, consider consider the newscast just internet cell for a moment. It is an hour of hard news. There are no soft stories in it. There's no sports. There's very little entertainment news. Even the weather is truncated down to the kind of basic facts that will be in a. Sunshiny or it will be rain will be this temperature or that temperature not a whole lot of there's no chatter the anchors don't chat back and forth. This just you know, it's if you have to sit here for an hour and take it all in that. That's I'm confess that is a bit of work. Maybe even a struggle. But beyond that. KPFA itself is. A hard sell. And here is why it has a multi. It's a multi format station several years ago, the corporation for public broadcasting which funds and aids public radio and television. But this particular program was for radio from the B was called the healthy stations program. And it went to all the public station said it helped fund in the country and told them they should have one single format. In other words, you should be all talk or all music, but don't mix the two. And if you're going to be all music, you should be all one kind of music. You should be all classical why you should be all rock or all popular. Well. Faye? Did not take the. Healthy station initiative initiative, and we remained what we are which is multi format. It's both talk and music. And when you look at the music and listen to the music, it's all different kinds of music. And that is a patchwork format it makes it difficult to listen to KPFA because sometimes you turn it on. You don't know what you're going to get and. Oh time. You don't like what you get simply because you don't like the kinda music or you don't happen to like with the host is saying about this. News topic or public affairs matter. So it's a constant struggle here KPFA because of what we are. And we are ninety percent listener sponsored by that. I mean nine out of every ten dollars that we expand comes from you, the listener, and it's hard to raise that amount of money. But we've got to do it. If we're going to remain the type of radio station that we are. So it's a constant struggle. And we are in the middle of a struggle right now to raise the amount of money, we need to keep going in this winter fund drive, and we are almost two thirds of the way through the fund drive, and we are not quite yet at halfway towards our goal..

"Those priests were moved around all over as as as it wasn't isolated to to Massachusetts. When spotlight investigation uncovered this in two thousand and two correct? I think right. It's the combination of those two things where you like to think that there has been changed. That has actually been affective. And then you find out that really the Catholic church has never come clean into some extent. They may have cleaned up. But there are people that you know, we probably encounter every day who have had some form of sexual misconduct happened to them, and it is an incredible burden for them to live with that. And we really oh it to them as Veivers to make sure that they receive some measure of accountability and Justice from the church, and so after I read what Pennsylvania had done I reached out to the bishops of all six dice is here in Illinois into that to them. Look we're going to open an investigation. I would like your cooperation, and you can either do this the easy way or we can do this the hard way, and they all agreed to cooperate. And that has been true to some extent in. And what was just shocking even after a few months of reviewing files that they've voluntarily turned over is that it was very evident that there were hundreds and hundreds more allegations that had been made against Catholic priests and clergy than it ever been investigated or reported to the public. So when we started the investigation back in August September of last year, there were approximately I think one hundred forty hundred fifty priests that had been credibly accused of sexual assault or sexual abuse against a minor here in Illinois, as we were going through files we were seen circumstances where there'd been an investigation in. It looked as if those people were credibly accused that had really happened. Nonetheless, that information hadn't been disclosed in fact of the six diocese here in L annoy, only two of them even maintain public list of those priests. And so as a result of our initial investigation. Every single diocese here. Nelin annoy has now published a list, they are continuing to add names to those lists because his work coming across people were saying to them will why isn't this person on the list publicly, and you know, there's adding them. So again, as I said when we started it was about one hundred forty five as of December it was closer to one hundred ninety but overall the number that we saw six hundred eighty so there were over five hundred priests and clergy members who had allegations of abuse against them where there may have not been an investigation or the may have been an investigation, and they chose no not defined that a credible allegation or they found it a credible allegation and never disclosed. So there is still an enormous amount of work to the church that there needs to be some external process to investigate this thing. The Catholic church cannot police itself they've made that. Clear, and they shouldn't be allowed to treat criminal behavior. As an internal personnel matter that should have never happened. And I think what they have moved to is sending allegations to law enforcement, but historically they held onto them for so long that the statute of limitations had run. And so really the other question. This brings up is. Well, who knew what when and was there a concerted effort to cover up this behavior? So that there would be no, criminal liability and that is wrong. And so I think is these investigations go on here now annoy and other states around the country. There really is going to be more of an effort made to determine are their people out there who need to take responsibility for what happened are there criminal prosecutions that can be brought you've worked to a whole range of other areas. We could take up hours talking about all the work that you did one of them was on the issue of student loans and the. Consumer fraud essentially wrought against, you know, thousands upon thousands of of young people. We've seen a change in policy on the part of the federal government under the Trump administration secretary device at the department of education. Are you concerned that we're going backward? We're absolutely going backward..

"And there was you know, there was really that feeling at least in that race. You know that he wasn't from the neighborhood. He wasn't black enough right, which now you look back, and you know, there's some irony to that as well. You actually leapfrog ahead of him for a while there, and you got elected attorney general in two thousand and two and one of the questions, then was and this was a place where the Madigan name was a help and a hindrance, but you hadn't practiced law, very long and were you qualified for this job. And you had a very specific view of what the job was. And felt you had the right skill set for it. And it wasn't. It's not a criminal in the main a criminal in Illinois. It's not some state's attorney generals have more criminal prosecutorial responsibilities not in Illinois. So in most big states in the United States. The attorney general is not your frontline criminal prosecutor so here in Illinois, New York, California, right? They all have state's attorneys are district attorneys. Is that they're electing out of counties to be the frontline prosecutors? So when there's a murderer rape robbery. Those are the people that bring those indictments whereas in Illinois, your state, your state attorney general is really the lawyer for the people of the state of the three hundred plus four hundred lawyers in the annoy attorney general's office. Eighty five percent of them are civil lawyers. So yes, there's a criminal component. But it's very different component with much more constrained authority than your state's attorneys. Now there are times when the attorney general will step in to the role of a state's attorney. But that tends to be limited to circumstances where there's a conflict of interest. So if an assistant state's attorney is convicted or is picked up for drunk driving that office can't prosecute one of their own or in this happens with some frequency. Unfortunately, there is a. Triple quadruple murder that takes place in downstate county, where they don't have the resources to prosecute that case, then we had a very elite group of criminal. Prosecutors who would come in and work with that county state's attorney to affect that. We're just the attorney general of intervene here to appeal a sentence that was given to Jason Van Dyke. The police officer who shot and killed Liquan McDonald. You got a six and a half year sentence and the attorney general and the special counsel, prosecuted Van Dyke are appealing to the state supreme court on the on the length of the sense. So that's another place in which the ju- agree, by the way with that decision intervene. I think that that was the right decision because there is an open question of law. It would take us a while to talk about it. But in essence, you're supposed to sentence somebody based on the most serious offense and. Well, to you know, the average person second degree murder sounds more serious than than aggravated battery. The reality is when you actually look at the sentences in situation here, the second degree murder is only a first degree felony. Whereas the other one is a class x felony and one of them only carries the provisions that fifty percent of your time needs to be served. Whereas the other one is eighty five percent of the time. And so it's a little flipped, and that's why they've asked because there is case law here in the state that would say that the judge may not have followed the law. The last thing you did as attorney general was a to enter into a consent decree with the city. Over the issue police conduct police reform, what what what is the status of police community relations here, you know, this is been from the time. I was I arrived here. This has been an issue. Ralph Metcalf was a congressman in Chicago who broke with mayor Daley in the seventies over a police misconduct and excessive force and so on what did you find? When you got into this issue..

"So the far west side of the city to pioneer community policing strategies as a crime reduction method that had that point not been adopted citywide in Chicago, but there were some jurisdictions in the United States were they were doing that. And it was being affective. And so it was interesting. I went on sort of an informational interview that somebody had connected me to these folks. And they said to me, look if you could do anything, what would you be doing right now? And I. Very honestly said, look, I wanna be you know, helping kids I just had this extrordinary experience in South Africa. And they looked back at me and told me what they were doing. And I said, oh, my gosh sign me up, and you know, it was kind of random situation. But after that, I was spending my afternoon in my weekends in the roll-call room of an old Chicago police station, more on the hill street blues model than these fancy new ones, look like libraries or community centers, and we were bringing kids in after school and on the weekends. And it was everybody from first graders through twelfth graders. And we were trying to kind of keep them engaged in their education. But we were also trying to keep them off the streets and away from the gangs. So they didn't become part of the criminal Justice system. And instead, you know, they would stay engaged get an education and be able to you know, help themselves and help their communities more. So it was this just another really unique and. Important opportunity, but it was both being in South Africa. And then working on the west side that finally said to me, oh, no, no. I want to law school because I want to have a credential that will allow me to continue to do the social Justice work and to help people. And so I finally decided I would go to law school. But to be honest, I wasn't so sure I was going to like it or be good at it. So I went at night initially to loyal and turns out great, and I loved it. So even though it's supposed take me four years to get out after a year and a half of doing part time. I, you know, squashed on my classes into the last year and a half and got out in three years. And and you you spent four years in a law firm, and then you ran for the state Senate on north head. And it was you ran against a guy who who had been there for quite a while as a state rep and a state Senator a guy who was a loyal at. Here in to your your your daddy's may a part of the caucus in the house. He also is a guy who is under indictment. I think at the time that you challenged him, which is sadly, not an heard of development here in the city of Chicago..

"We're talking about a really phenomenal guy who he got me out of journalism, and I went to work for him when he ran for the United States Senate. He was a congressman from southern Illinois, a guy who quit a college and bought a small town newspaper in southern Illinois and crusaded against a crime syndicate down there, and and fought for civil rights and political reform and very courageously and was kind of one of a kind big jug years and horn rimmed glasses. He wore bowtie, perfect voice for radio, you did he had this. He could. Have done the farm report every every single day. But he also I don't know if you know this. But you know, when I was working for them. I noticed that his suits were all a little short his pants, and I suppose you're and it turned out that a constituent passed away and was so fond of Paul that they be quite their suits to him. And he never got them. Never bothered to get the pants adjusted. A great story. And it's not a surprise. You know, Paul Simon was in extrordinary public servant, clearly a public servant at heart. And he was I mean everywhere we went he would talk to absolutely everybody, and he hadn't ability to connect with into engage with a broad range of people and what I will always. Remember about him is that even if people disagreed with him, they respected him and he had such a following. Because there were some issues that he was you know, out in front of war. He would be you know, I would say in southern Illinois being against the death penalty may not have been considered the politically frankly for civil rights, correct absolutely on civil rights, but people respected him, and he always took the time. I think because of his journalism background. He was always writing. He was putting out those weekly columns, and he was explain themselves and staying connected with the public in with the voters. And so he did very very well. And even when he left office he continued like you to develop the next generation of public servants, southern Illinois. Exactly, he was a in everywhere lovely person. I miss him still you left after college. You went to South Africa. And I was wondering whether there was a Paul had anything to do with inspiring you in that regard because he was a huge proponent for foreign exchanges. He also had a big focus on Africa. So I'm wondering how you came to make that decision. So when I was working in his office in Washington. My recollection is that Paul actually chaired the African subcommittee from the foreign affairs committee, and he did an enormous amount of work, particularly in Nigeria. I recall in your hundred percent right about his advocacy that young people travel outside of the country. So they have a different perspective. And they learn about other people in other cultures. And it did have an impact on me. I already had an interest in Africa and taken an enormous number of classes about post, colonial sub Saharan Africa in. So when I graduated in. In nineteen eighty eight. This was at the time where the anti-apartheid movement was very strong, and you had universities and colleges around the country who were under pressure to divest their assets in South African companies eventually, Georgetown. Agreed. They would do that. But in addition they wanted to add something into the country. And so what they decided to do in partnership with the South African Catholic Bishops Conference is to send over recent graduates to volunteer teach in needy Catholic high schools and so several weeks after I graduated I got on a plane and went to Johannesburg, South Africa. An ultimately went down to a place called Montebello, which is a school that was about an hour and a half north west of Durban in KwaZulu, and I found myself with a government degree in an English minor suddenly teaching to giant sections of algebra..

"I mean, what do you remember about that? It wasn't a good situation. So it was a bit of a rough time. You know, I think I did much better the second time around when it comes to dads. Yeah. You're famously your mom married. Mike Madigan who's the longest serving legislative leader in the in the country. We'll we'll we'll get to that. But and I don't want to try it on on a difficult rounds? But headed impact you as a child these what you describe as difficulties. Well, I was an only child for the first twelve years of my life. And I certainly saw what it was like for single mom to raise her daughter at a time where not a lot of my friends if really any of my friends families were divorced not a lot of the moms who were working fulltime to support the family. And so I was kind of, you know, one of those latchkey kids before the really was such a thing that I at least knew about. But in a lot of ways, you know, there's always good with the bad. Right. And for me, I had an opportunity to see my mom out there working and to recognize she was working a law firm. She was a receptionist at a law firm, and I had an opportunity because of that because the people who work there were very nice. I would sometimes go there after school. And so I grew up in some part in a law firm, and you know, so getting to see what lawyers do, and I still remember when they hired the first woman ask at the law firm and thinking, wow. And it was really interesting because, you know, of course, all the secretaries and all the receptionist the paralegals, they were all women all the lawyers were men. And so when they hired the first woman, it was really interesting because she was somebody who was friends with obviously, both all the men who were the lawyers and all the women who were on staff, but it really opened my eyes to the fact that. Look, this is something women can do. And when you were ten or so. She remarried. I should ask you. This was your birth father in your life at all or he was up to that point. And then he wasn't for a long time. And he's now deceased. But. I think to the point you're about to get to very startling when my mom got remarried impart because we move from the north side of Chicago to the south west side of Chicago. Because that's where his district is. And you know, you know, Chicago, very well. It's a whole city made up of a lot of different needs distinctive neighborhoods, very distinctive neighborhoods, and the south side of Chicago is is nothing like the north side of Chicago in some ways. Side. Did you live? We were on the near north side, essentially, you know, in between Diversey in Belmont near Broadway. So we should just for those of you who aren't from Chicago which appoint the cultural Gulf, especially at that time. I mean, the nearside is Kaga was sort of the hub of liberalism anti machine ISM. It was kind of more avant-garde in terms of culture. I think we're in the forty third war. I remember going to the very first pride parade when it took plays. And then when I moved to the south west side, I remember of Catholic, very Catholic. So do your point. I remember riding my bike and being stopped by some girls..

She says go via point were ordered not to talk to her office in retaliation for the investigation understand the complete absurdity of that is the lawyer for the state I had at times thirty thousand cases, where I'm defending the state of Illinois. We have to be in constant communications with these people, and they were told they weren't allowed to talk to us in. So that's a big Zamel. But the petty example is new they were so angry about what we were doing. They wouldn't have our bathrooms clean. The management of the building that housed madigan's office. Just happened to be controlled by the governor. People had to bring in their own, soap and towels things would break in leak wouldn't come to fix them. It's one of the reasons I call it the Begovic reign of terror. I'm not joking. The oppressive nature of having to work for state government when the governor himself is working against the state in everybody's aware of it. It's insane.

Amazon also plans to bring seven hundred jobs to Long Island city by twenty nineteen coming up how fortnight triggered an unwinnable war between parents and their kids. The value of fortnight's maker epic has swelled to nearly fifteen billion dollars from less than one billion in less than six years. The Wall Street Journal reported such in October. Furthermore, the takeover game is not only reshaping American spend their time. But also how they communicate. And the Wall Street Journal's Betsy Morris reports that it may also care at family relationships in ways that few if any video games have done before. So what exactly makes this game show powerful in a special journal feature some young players explain the current fortnight hype? Everyone's playing all of our friends like it's everywhere. Toby got it. He didn't really play. He'd never played. It is agree. You should get it. So I downloaded it. And we played it was really fun. The Matthew had it like you got like a week later. Now, we play never got our first win, the congress Cullen going for the next lane next one if they fighting game animated, there's no blood, and I like the fact that it's like. You just jump on a map bat Oreo. It's really immersive to and it's always different it's net. Like every game isn't going to be the same. I just fell in love with it. Right. When they showed it to me. Jamie Madigan author of getting gamers explains. The key social components of the game. That are changing the way young people communicate most of the most popular games like fortnight, and others are social so you're playing within against other people. You're communicating with them. You're talking outside of the game about the matches. You had last night or coordinating schedules? So that you can play together today after school, and it is a much more interactive social experience than it has been in the past. I've a bunch of friends on here that play and they won't get on when gets off one gets on. And then I play with gets on which they keep saying, it's a different way to interact socially now than like, for example. Go into part, I'd say, it's it's really cool because it lets you communicate with people that you don't really see that much. Parents are noticing the change in social behavior. Firsthand fortnight is a big part of. Of his social life, and of what makes them happy these to play more of a variety of things. But at some point it was just fortnight. That's it for him and all his friends you really wants to play with his friends are on. So he's not as interested in playing when they're not on. And then there is the already addictive nature of video games to contend with. And how some say fortnight takes things to a new level people like activities that make them feel like they're mastering something and getting better at it. They like activities that make them feel important to other people to the extent that that activity satisfies those needs people are motivated to keep doing it and come back to it. I sometimes I feel like from. I'd say I play enough via wearing after a couple of months playing you might get a little dicta to it. It hits a lot of buttons with in terms of reward. And we have many kids that we can compare him to there seems to be such a trend in some similarities between the mall in terms of not really. Wanting to get back to it wanting to play it for a long period of time. He just seemed to really be fixated on this game. Even when he wasn't playing it. You get nervous when you see your kid staring at a scream incessantly for four hours. I'm concerned that it's very addictive, and that it takes so much time away from everything else. You're trying to be the good parent and not be too permissive. You don't want this to get out from under you where it's something that you're having constant battles about. And where you feel like as a parent. You don't have a say in any any limit setting with it. The journal notes that research on the impact of video games is inconclusive on one hand it found video games to boost visual acuity processing speed and decision. Making on the other hand studies also link aiming to poor behavior and lower school performance. It's a weighty topic. Again, check out more WSJ for a special feature an in depth look at. The issue.
