"You have ever done a cedar you know the age old question age old question. What do you like better. The three point contest to the slam dunk contest. That's up there with jordan or lebron and also more bellichik or brady. I'll tell you what at barton hong we're talking about all star weekend dunk contest or the three point contest. I gotta say. I let me just start with the dunk contest for a second anfernee simon's like i know he didn't kiss the rim because it's metal and if you gauge it just right you knock your teeth out so you smart not to kiss the rim but the fact that even blew. The rimkus indicates that his mouth was at the rim. That was insane. Ob top and he was fine. Listen nowadays that dunks are so ridiculous and by the way. I'm not like don't tell me about this. This was so difficult and and it's been this one looked better but it wasn't his heart. All it matters is what it looks like is the feeling it gives you. When you watch it and free simon's clearly was the winner. That was the dopes dunk when he almost kissed. Just look better. i don't know why like michael jordan when you look at them in those dunk contest. Dominique one he got robbed jordan. Did the same thing and blah blah blah blah blah. No no no no calm down. Dominika was spectacular. Jordan looked better when he ducked. I don't know why he just like he floated in the air. It looked like he was flying just looked fresher. That's all there is to it and for simon's look the freshest when he was dunking period. Now i wouldn't say he's on the level of who's the best dunker really since jordan when you watch him. You could argue vince carter. You could argue zach levine. I'm not saying simon's is. They're quite but damn he gets up and he has that flying thing. That even more than vince. Carter i think jordan and zac levin and anfernee assignments have that look like somehow they're floating in the air. So i'll tell you what the three point contest steph. One and steph was spectacular. People no one ever stops with igwe dollar. Give me a dollar right. Because i said on. I take fate of universe on the lot open. Look at three not getting your own. Three gimme igwe dollar over steph curry. And that's become a member of femur a gift for jeff. I don't know what it's become. Become something i get ratio d- or something like that. I don't know what the kids are saying. The point is i completely stand by what i said when i said it and i can't help it if you are too stupid to realize what i was saying or to disagree with. It gathered around dummies. Let me explain it to you one last time. I'm sure if not for the last time steph. Curry can win a three point contest. I don't doubt the question was throughout his career when they needed it most enough finals. Could he win that three point contest. Because let me tell you something. I saw steph in one of the most important games in the history of american team sports game seven at oracle. Why was one of the most important just like the patriots lost to the giants their undefeated season. That warriors team had won seventy three games. Had they beaten lebron's stacked cavs team because lebron kyri and kevin love had they beaten that team the same team that beat them the year before he said well no. They didn't really win okay. The warriors won but the cavs had kyri and kevin love out and lebron second best player was delaware dove in fifteen and they still took the warriors six games. It was obvious had. Lebron had his full complement of players. He'd beaten the warriors maybe an under seven games. But in the warriors got better and they seventy-three freaking games and it was the greatest at that point history. Half court offense of all time of all time and i was at oracle for that game on my own dime. Sometimes i'm like no. I'm getting tickets for this one. And i watched steph curry the conductor of the greatest half court orchestra in the history of basketball. I saw them go scoreless. In the last four minutes and twenty two seconds of a game seven to be crowned the greatest team in history at home score zero points in four minutes and twenty two seconds the final four minutes and twenty two seconds of game seven of the finals steph curry choked period and i saw too many finals where steph were plausible explanations. For why he didn't play better well he get so much attention. He's distributing the ball. The ball doesn't stick with him. he's using himself to draw the attention. He's getting his teammates. Open looks blah blah blah steph consistently wasn't as good as he normally is in the final period. What do you think. Lebron doesn't draw attention. Why is he normally better than he usually is in the finals. Because steph choked just say what it is not to the extent that hardens joked but he choked is the type of doodoo hits bigshots. He doesn't let the pressure get him. He believes he deserves it right now. These things are not static. It doesn't mean somehow steph has some defect in his character and he can never hit a clutch shot because given enough reps. He got comfortable enough. That the last final steph was in against coen. The raptors steph was clutch killing them with threes to win games. Win a cut one a couple of games. I shouldn't have won. Because steph was on fire. So i i'm not saying he still has. He was but once upon a time steph had a problem hitting big shots in the final period. You don't have to like it but let me put you up on something in case you're not aware and if you're in denial about it stop lying. Start being honest. He had a problem coming through in the finals. P riyadh and you know it now. Those days may be passed for good because certainly the last finals he played in he did great. But this was the kinda game the all star game three point contest. We're steph once upon a time would have won. It looked great. And i've been like wake me up when we get to the finals..

Is One of those who have been anonymity said on a number of cases the the Leeds Liverpool Guide McKay Milton in. The Games we've seen in driving early Paul Kaneko great with farms. This be a good as poll finds it. Was the best scope for tuning in fifty years full wins in in in full out either fistful playing with the confidence playing. swaggie schooling goals looking defensively strong. A manager WHO's in charge get a football club this no nonsense gets down to business people understand the responsibilities accountability is football club that I haven't seen some wild. So it's a great one to look forward to decide wet weather abso- how they start last results with your staff. I mean what away take to Kit Barking in the Premier League Mushy Gay? on NBC send the Dobie two ways bake it feels. Vegan now because averaging Komen rob is healthy as I can remember them. Yeah right I mean that's the news. Isn't it looks like you know of course, we won't know until a little bit near the looks like an honest fit looks like Andre Gomez. Is said, he's definitely going to be okay for the game Hamas. Macoris been great as well. Be So to get that almost new. Yeah. New Midfield against Paul to to kind of surreal litmus test of. Web.

He's been way with national team, as well as how his confidence getting minutes for the for the national team is fantastic. It's going to be a real handful forgivable rob and yet what they've shown us over. Well, the the full games of the Premier League Season Standard and some bad. What separates game is the. On this is kind of I feel about maybe talked about on the last show is the when Liverpool? A not attic would that energy in that press them like wine is a vulnerability, take the jets. That that's been than shown out now in of games, leaves leads gaming until the game where if midfield plants in the opponents can look forward, robin heads up, they're gonNA play get behind liberal going to try and play the offside trap, which is a bit of a disaster for them but. Because it's the Dhabi but. You gotTA. Off to the GonNa be Acting Rob with with pressurizing an frozen down. I wouldn't think they would allow Evanston. The time is midfielder kit boys over the top. But if they do, they're going to be in trouble because Hamas is particularly. Andres. Gomez. They've got plans that can spot afford bore according behind but live I mean surely Rob Liverpool won't let that happen in this game all they. Know and I think I remember I watched the highlights packages, to Aston. Villa I'm thinking what become so obvious welby is that. He watching the game you realize. This is so different from everything that would become used to seeing about Liverpool did something about energy not drive it is pretty much consistent every week win as they often don't he doesn't happen stands out like lot so. You're not. I yet suggest interested in possibly personnel. IS FOR BEING A bachelor. Of Dodge Non Joe, Gomez hasn't been. Listed on old is not been ungrateful since we started this season is that. and Sanshui Alderson's pace in a village.

South isolated all in time for the game. COMPLA-. Attempted to play him in the role and forbidden back alongside. Filling for. Time England so he's probably closely to. Apply. In. That next year. For Fabio you plan instead of Gomez Right now. I think. I think having seen what we saw in the game against Leeds seeing relationship with tournament him and Van Dyke, it might just local little steadier and when when you think of Gomez, Alexandra will possibly on the Ryan Saadi the pitch I don't think both particularly started seizing while almost want the experience on maturity for being no might just be some theme.

"Of livestream. Beers I mean, twenty three million youtube views, which is unbelievably hard to get each video him versus Sam Harris. A devout atheist we're Jordan Peterson despite the mockery and the persecution of the atheist chattering class when they're going after the Bible, he doesn't just give an inch. He defends says you understand there's no other document like this ever created I can't even quite explain the psychological and there's something the cycle. Truth and the harmony of the book where Yes, you can read it sequentially but the entire book harmonized with itself, the more you read from beginning to end so here's a guy that again comes from the academy. He's a social psychology to clinical psychologist whose contending for the greatest book ever and for Truth and articulate Christianity better than most pastors. I've ever found and I tell you rob Jordan. Peterson, not did not bring me Christ he didn't pastor. Did that Actually Bible teacher to that in fifth grade? Jordan. Peterson. Set Me More on fire for the Gospel of Jesus Christ than most Christian Pastor Everwood meant to how's that possible he also, he goes through chapter by verse by Verse Chapter by Chapter The Bible. He does actually read he doesn't skip it versus he doesn't say his inconvenient and he talks about what is the historical psychological sociological and cultural impact of, for example, the Tower of Babel. Don't try to build something on earth to hike as God's going to scatter it to chaos. That's true. governmentally true. Sociologically. That's true individually, and so he goes through the entire Bible and it's not just he doesn't look like the Bible as an ace up fable book. That's not what he does is that's the criticism of him. It's deeper than that. He says, Matthew Five is the most important dialogue human history. He makes the argument he does that Matthew Five changed the course of human history and he says even an atheist that doesn't understand Matthew Five, it is anti history. The book that you turned me onto is. Just riddled with with local wisdom. Biblical. Wisdom. Quoting complete chapters of the by Uninterrupted Cherry Picking Map Prosperity Gospel stuff.

"Kind of decided who you're going to be. That's what you need to get. So. You can try the tough guy move where it's like. Hey. I'm into you. And I want you to be into me. Hey I remember one of the very serious girlfriends that I had I was getting friend zoned real quick and I went hey, just see you know. I'm not here to be your friend. And it worked and I was like I'm the man and I told people like it worked I just sit straight up and she said when you said that I was like Oh my God. It's also not worked. Okay. So It everybody's different and I it's very civilising. But I just when you say that you DMZ her and then the conversation fizzled out pretty quickly. A very close female friend of mine and we were talking about this and she's married. So it wasn't like that wasn't friend zone she wasn't even an option but. We were of laughing about how simple all of this can be if you text somebody and they don't text you back, it probably means they don't want to text you back. That's it. I mean it the person's running a fortune five, hundred company in they're super busy in your on one of the bat phones. You know there are the rare exceptions. But for the most part, if you show interest in someone and they don't show interest back, it means they're not interested. I know that sounds insane that I have to keep saying it slowly but. I'm not I'm not big on, you know six months courtship. Efficiency here I'm not going to dribble out the clock. Let's go. No all right. Moving on. So. Maybe this isn't great advice but. For men or women that consistently try to feel like, what's he thinking? What's he doing? If he's not texting you back if she's not texting you back as she doesn't seem to want to ever engage the conversation is the conversation always you I it's it never her first. That's Kinda your answer. So All right. One Quick One rob Jordan. I don't think I was supposed to say his name but maybe You know what? We should just leave it in there. We, should leave it in there because this is a problem. And maybe this gets out of the mixed maybe I save the friend group by exposing this I don't know I'm on the fence where you with this cow should we just bleep out his last name see how plays out I guess I don't I don't know what's going on. Okay. because he has a good email and it's a problem big fan since the Septa. Help, speed up a couple of hours during the shit yobs during college breaks. Okay. Thanks. All right. Okay. We're his friend group around thirty. I'll have good jobs. My Buddy will call him Bill Bill Simmons. Makes the most money? Oh wait. No debt and his annoyingly cheap not Bill Simmons. All right. Bill. Is Not. Cheap. Okay. So here's the deal. All right. So he's got a friend bill makes the most money no debt is unknowingly cheap. Great. Do Been Friends Forever Fund hilarious have your back but she hell when out to dinner, he'll put dinner on his car to get the points and we'll split the bill whatever and he'll tip like five ten percent. All right stop the fucking presses here He puts his car down to get all the points and then you then mo him. So none of you guys get points and then he tips five to ten percent this guy sucks. Sucks. So. Rob Continues is a former service industry person has pisses me off. You can sense my tone I'm also pissed off at other example, another friend I'll buy a round of drinks to barb pre Cova D- obviously whatever people want. Then he'll buy a round of the cheap shit beer. They have that no one wants and think it's even go on and on at times where he's made out well, stuck paying get screwed a few of us to talked about it but it never approached do we is it worth it? We dumped for carrying no, you're not dump for carrying I. One hundred percent with you. I've never been more with anyone who's ever emailed anything to anyone else. This is awful We we had somebody in the group that did do this his move used to be if we were ordering pizzas Bill Katie one order pizza. nope I don't. Okay fine. We Order Pizza we pay. Then you do that thing where after a couple of slices you sit back on the couch she kinda take a breath maybe loosen up the belt strap and ready for round two and he'd be like are you guys done be like? Are you an asshole? Are you serious? We just asked if you wanted to order and basically you just wait until we took a breath and then he would way we wait after round two and three and be like you guys do GonNa Throw it away. I never another time there was bottle service I think where at the end of the night and I've I've mentioned this in passing but it's not as specific as this where he was bragging the other guys be like I didn't spend any money last night was someone did it? You know what was us? We spent the money that's why our credit card bills sucks right now. So what what does this contest? This isn't survivor. Okay. This is supposed to be friendship. So this is I would have everybody get right in his face don't be nice about it and if he's not your friend anymore. I think you're okay with because that's it's such a shitty attribute to have as a person to not only be cheap. You're not. You're not just being cheap to servers. You're not just being cheap to the rest of the world you're actually like getting over on your friends and you think it's cool. We had another roommate who used to do this thing where. If, we didn't really buy rounds in college everybody was sort of a mercenary doing their own thing anyway but If. We did ever by rounds it would. It would be like all right. I. GotTa write it just all felt like it was even. Is your best friend you live with for a year. Okay. So maybe somebody's up at the end of the night somebody's down. It'll probably even out maybe there's a guy that always likes to pay for over the years have always been a pay guy I think it's because of the bartending because I want people have a good time I've paid I got accused of being cheap I think once and I was I was so offended because of the years of me, I think being a great tipper because I bartended. Alright. Bartenders generally tip too much the point where it's like, Oh hey I, got hooked up and sick yet actually cost me more because I paid the bartender tax but. We had a guy who who would be like Hey I bought around. CONGRATS. Great. You know print up a fucking shirt man. Like no, you still owe me around. Like what? They bought a remember when I bought the coors lights and then you didn't pay and you just go. You know what? In the future leamy your rounds. Then if this, if this is the deal, if this is international trade I would like to be left out in the future. So Yeah, I'm upset ROB upset for you. I'm upset for your friends of upset that you have to to make excuses to somebody who's been a lifelong friend that thinks it's okay. Getting over on you guys this much that credit card point thing that would happen zero times with my group Zero Times. So. You know. The next email, the next life advice rob. Yeah. The next one is going to be a backbone. It's not going to.

Did a great job from all over the reports that I have heard. I thank him very, very much for doing that. It is not easy. To drop into a talk show and just hit the ground running as Jordan does and and work for 20 hours during that week and and pass the baton back, So I'm back. Like to start off where we're about to start a run here of about what In less than three months. But man in less than 100 days every four years in America, we have a presidential election and, of course, every four years in America, most people tell us This is the most important presidential election in the history of the country. Well, this actually might be the most important presidential election in several presidential elections. And I pledge to all of you. During the next 90 days or whatever it is 13 weeks, three months. Whatever you want to call it, OK, it goes until November 3rd. I encouraged that from now on. Guarantee you that between now and November 3rd as always, we will allow and encourage all points of view. And of course, we'll do it even after November 3rd, but I think it's important.

Along the way we will deal with very important issues as well. Which may or may not impact your presidential vote. We're not just going to do four hours of Julia for Donald Trump or job I know not going to do that. So for example, tonight Coming up at nine o'clock. We're going to take a long, hard look. At the problem. One of the problems that co Vered 19 has explained to us his and is basically exposed to us and that is the supply chain long supply chain that all of us in this country depend upon for a medicine for our pharmaceuticals. Which used to be provided to us from factories in Puerto Rico are now provided to us from factories in China. Yes, Communist China.

A senatorial debate between Senator Ed Markey and Congressman Joe Kennedy they facing off in the Democratic Senatorial Primary on September 1st. And tomorrow night they will be debating on W B.

Of course, we're gonna want your reaction as well. Coming up tonight at 10 o'clock. I'm going to ask the question, and I don't frankly know the answer to my question. Why is Joe Biden taking so long? To pick a vice presidential candidate he has known really since mid to late February, Ah, that he wrote since late February that he would be the Unless something intervened he would be the Democratic nominee. And they're still As Johnny most would say, Finland and fabulous, I guess with the choice off his running mate, So we're going to get to that. But 1st 1st hour tonight, I want to drill down pretty deeply. On a story that I watched last week and I would have talked about last week and I'm sure probably, but we will talk about it tonight. And that is this group called the Massachusetts. Bail fund. These are the folks who are raising literally millions of dollars to bail people out of jail. Pretrial. And there is a case in point. And there's some other cases that we will point to the motto of the Massachusetts Bail fund is free them all. Free them all. And then the all our criminal defendants before trial, so no bail and and if bail is requested And granted in court. They will rush To the to the county jail with the money to free people. And they do it. Because their virtue signaling, and they want all of us to know what wonderful people they are. But tell that to the woman from Quincy, who was raped last week, allegedly raped last week by a guy that they sprung from the slammer, so We're going to dig down deep on this drill down deep on this. If you know this story, this is a story.

night that began with the giants defining the game with offense three home runs an explosion in the early innings eight nothing lead after four but quickly the attention this is another as we expected almost two full seasons now but I think as to what went on here tonight forty two thousand two hundred and ninety eight people who don't want to go home I will never forget what they did is the twenty second perfect game in the history of the big leagues but I think for everybody here the first ever in the history of do you think about what that means the giants franchise that has won six World

"Hemingway look alike contest and key West every year in August and they haven't sloppy joes in Ernest. Hemingway lost the very first. They also have they have this great and it's all for charity like it's all like raise and every year. They raise money for different charity. But they do the running of the Papua's which is which is which is a marathon through us. So it's all of these these hemingway lookalikes running through. Everyone has a beard and a Cuban hat and cigar from their mouth. And there are. None of them are healthy looking. So they're all like running through the of Key West in August and it's called the running of the poppas look it up online. It's such a cool thing. They've been doing it a really long time. I think they've been doing it since the seventies I want to say but a friend of mine. My friend rich went last year because we I used to joke. Because he's such a handsome guy. We used to joke. That rich looked exactly like hemingway and I told him about it because when he was working at the museum. He's a conservative and I told him about it. I was like you should do this and he did like. They chartered a boat and he did like some like fishing on the coast and they stayed in Key West and he. He went through he through the first round as a first time. Papa so yeah. He sent me some pictures. That was really cool. He said he had like the white sweater with the roll neck and he like even did a brief impression. That's another thing. There's like a performance aspect to it. It's great key. Us is the best so anyway. So he's in he's in key. West now hangs out at sloppy Joe's. He invited friends to join him on fishing trips. And not an all male expedition to the dry Tortuga Meanwhile he continued to travel to Europe and to Cuba and although in nineteen thirty-three he wrote a key west quote. We have a fine house here and kids are all well Biographer believes he was plainly restless. So in Nineteen thirty-three Hemingway in pauline went on safari to East Africa. The ten week trip provided material for Green Hills of Africa as well as the short stories. The snows of Kilimanjaro. And the short happy life of Francis mccumber. Their guide was the noted. White Hunter Philip Percival. Who had guided? Theodore Roosevelt on his nineteen o nine safari. And during these travels. Hemingway contracted amoebic dysentery. That caused a prolapsed intestine. And he was. He was evacuated by plane tonight. Roby and experience reflected. In the snows of Kilimanjaro. On Hemingway's return to early nineteen thirty four. He began work on the Green Hills of Africa which he published in nineteen thirty five to mixed reviews again. Green Hills of Africa is just like a vaguely semi autobiographical story of him. Being in Africa Hemingway bought a boat in nineteen thirty four. He named it the Pilar and he began sailing. The Caribbean in nineteen thirty five. He first arrived at Amini where he spent a considerable amount of time and during this period he also worked on to have an have not published nineteen thirty seven while he was in Spain. The only novel he wrote during the Nineteen Thirties so to have and have not The book is about Harry Morgan. Who is a fishing boat? Captain of Key West who turns to a life of crime after the depression hits He smuggles people in illegal cargo back and forth to Cuba. And it's basically tells. The story of the haves who are wealthy yacht owners affected by the economic downturn and the have nots who are poor residents and minorities living in Key West. So that's to having to have not. That's all about key west and Cuba great. He loved Cuba. Oh you love Cuba. So we'll talk about Cuba in one thousand thirty seven. Hemingway left for Spain to cover the Spanish civil war for the North American newspaper. Alliance despite pauline reluctance to have him working in a war zone. She's like you're getting older. You have kids. Let's just stay in Key West. And he was like no. I love it. Your new spark kangaroo like maybe take it easy. Never takes it easy. He was joined in Spain by journalist and writer Martha Gill Horn. Who had met in Key West a year earlier Like Hadley Martha was a Saint Louis Native and like Pauline. She had worked for vogue in Paris. of Martha Kurt. Who who wrote the Hemingway Women She explains she never catered to him. The way other women did so. Martha Gal Horn is a pistol. Like she I mean. She wasn't like innocent in this whole thing because he definitely had an affair with her but she was like it seemed like she was the only woman in his life gave it back to him as good as he got. You know what I mean so late in nineteen thirty while in Madrid with Martha. Hemingway wrote his only play which is called the fifth column as the city was being bombarded by Franco's forces. He returned to Key West for a few months back to Spain twice in nineteen thirty eight where he was present at the battle of the ABRO. The last Republican stand and was among the British and American journalists. Who are some of the last to leave the battle as they crossed the river? Wow so he was like in though she act like he was in it so in early. Nineteen thirty nine Hemingway. Cross to Cuba in his boat to live at the hotel. Ombudsman dose in Havana This was the separation phase of a slow and painful split from pauline which began when Hemingway met Martha Gal Horn. Martha student soon joined him in Cuba and they rented a Finca via which is lookout farm. A fifteen acre property. Fifteen miles from Havana Pauline in the children left hemingway that summer and if the family was reunited during a visit to Wyoming when his divorce from pauline was finalized he and Martha were married on November twentieth. Nineteen Forty Cheyenne Wyoming. So again divorce. The woman He was with and then quickly turned around and married the woman he was having an affair with some Hemingway moved his primary summer. Residents to Ketchum Idaho and moved his winter residence to Cuba. He had been disgusted. WanNa a Parisian friend allowed his cats to eat from the table but then he became enamored of cats in Cuba and kept dozens of them on the property One of them called snowball. An all white cat is the ancestor of a lot of the cats. At the Hemingway House in Key West. Which I've been to the Hemingway House is a very cool place. If you are allergic to cats you should go nowhere near. There are a ton of cats there. The whole place smells like cat which is not my favorite thing. But it's very it's funny because it's it's a historic home like you go on a tour. You can't like just walk around the house. You have to go with a tour guide. You can't touch things you can't like all these rooms are like coordoned-off but all these cats are like like sleeping on the bed rubbing their top things rubbing their butts on things getting their nasty little. Toby means all over everything So I don't know how the museum workers there I don't know is key west like key. West people are like Matt's fine but it is kind of funny because there are like a lot of somebody cats like you go into the gift shop and you want you go to like those little cubbyholes. Keep the shirts and you go to grab a shirt. But there's a cat sleeping on the pile of shirts in the gift shop so but almost all the white cats or at least a good portion of the white cats at the Hemingway House Key West are descendants of snowball. They had six toes and they have six jobs. Yes yes so back to Martha Gal Horn. She inspired him to write his most famous novel. For whom the bell tolls which he started in March of Nineteen thirty nine and finished in July nineteen forty. It was published in October. Nineteen forty and it became a book of the month club choice. Sold half a million copies within months and was for a Pulitzer Prize and quote triumphantly. Reestablished Hemingway's literary reputation in the words of a biographer Myers. So for whom the bell tolls graphically described the brutality of the Spanish civil war. It is told primarily through the thoughts and experiences of the protagonist. Whose name is Robert Jordan. Who is definitely ernest? Hemingway it draws on Hemingway's in the Spanish civil war as a reporter for the North American newspaper Alliance so Jordan is an American who lives in prewar. Spain and fights as an irregular soldier for the Republic Against Frank Francisco Franco's fascist forces ooh He falls in love. The broken Spanish woman named Maria he heroically saves a bunch of people during a skirmish but is mortally wounded in the process and the book ends with him bidding farewell to Maria and his comrades as he plans one last ambush against the fascist forces. It's basically war porn. That's for whom the bell tolls. It's basically Hemingway's experiences like thinly-veiled experiences in the Spanish civil war. His protagonists teams are just such like good masculine. America's boy named Yes shake hours. Yeah Rob Jordan. Yeah it's a lot of like short masculine names. So in January nineteen forty one. Martha was sent to China on assignment for Collier's magazine and Hemingway went with her sending in dispatches for the newspaper PM but in general he disliked China Two thousand nine book suggests during that period he may have been recruited to work for Soviet intelligence agents under the name agent Argo but soon has not been proven They returned to Cuba before the declaration of war by the United States that December when he convinced the Cuban government to help him refit the Pilar which he intended to use to ambush German submarines off the coast of Cuba. He was like I'm GonNA can kill a bunch of Germans with tiny boat drunk. Quasi at this point you can probably guarantee super drunk like he's basically drunk all the time so between May nineteen forty four March nineteen forty five. He was in Europe traveling around when he arrived in London he met Time magazine correspondent Mary. Welch with whom he became infatuated. I know I know. I Know Martha had been forced to cross the Atlantic in a ship filled with explosives because hemingway refused to help her get a press pass on a plane and she arrived in London. Find him hospitalized with a concussion from a car accident she was as you can imagine super unsympathetic and accused him of being a bully and told him that she was through absolutely finished. The last time that Hemingway saw Martha was in March nineteen forty-five as he was preparing to return to Cuba and their divorce was finalized later that year. Meanwhile he had asked Mary Welch to marry him on their third meeting. Dear read it. My parentheses forty two wife parentheses forty-three F is mad at me because I made her get on a plane. Filled with explosives. Am I the asshole? Yeah Yeah so Martha was like you know what that's it I'm done and then was like done. Martha was ever. I mean Sh- good for her. She should have married him in the first place. But you know no. Nobody's perfect all made that mistake. We've all dated that guy. So Hemingway accompanied the troops to Normandy landings wearing a large head bandage according to his biographer. But he was considered precious cargo and not allowed ashore. The landing craft came within sight of Omaha beach before coming under enemy fire and turning back so he was like there that her the storming of Omaha Knew Him. They knew who he yes point. Having the guy with the big bandage he was in a car accident. Got a concussion. Hemingway we like. Oh my God. So Hemingway later wrote in Collier's that he could see the first second third fourth and fifth waves of landing troops lay where they had fallen looking like so many heavily laden bundles. The flat pebble stretched between the sea. And I cover so late in July. He attached himself to the twenty second infantry regiment commanded by Colonel Charles. Buck Lanham drove toward Paris and Hemingway became defacto leader to a small band of village militia and Rambo. Outside of Paris a biographer remarks. Hemingway got into considerable trouble playing infantry captain to a group of resistance people that he gathered because correspondent is not supposed to lead troops even if he does it. This wasn't fact in contravention of the Geneva Convention and Hemingway was brought up on formal charges. He said he beat the rap by claiming that he only offered advice. My God so he drank four bottles of Ryan and he was like we're going. This way is so on August twenty fifth. He was president at the liberation of Paris as a journalist. Contrary to the Hemingway legend he was not the first into the city. Nor did he liberate the Ritz there? But he wasn't like running around saving people's asses he did love the Ritz. Heo He loved the Ritz in Paris. He visited Sylvia's Beach and Pablo Picasso with Mary. Welch who joined him there and in a spirit of happiness he forgave gertrude. Stein sounds more. Like Gertrude. Stein forgave him. But you know whatever so they're friends again thankfully On December seventeenth nineteen forty four. He had himself driven to Luxembourg in spite of illness to cover the battle of the bulge as soon as he arrived however Lanham handed him to the doctors who hospitalized him with pneumonia. He recovered a week later but most of the fighting was over so he missed it because he was sick in nineteen forty seven. Hemingway was awarded a Bronze Star for his bravery during World War Two. He was recognized for having been quote under fire in combat areas in order to obtain an accurate picture of conditions with the combination that through his talent expression. Mr Hemingway enabled readers to obtain a vivid picture of the difficulties and triumphs of the front line soldier and his organization in Combat. So he is like at every war. He's in every conflict. He's like in the shit he loves this. This is his favorite thing besides women. Besides women like he's bad at women. Hemingway said that he was out of businesses. A writer from nineteen forty to nineteen forty-five during his residence in Cuba and in one thousand forty six married Mary who had an ectopic pregnancy five months later. The Hemingway family suffered a series of accidents and health problems in the years following the war in one thousand nine hundred five car accident. He smashed his knee and sustained another deep wound on his forehead. Mary broke I her right ankle. And then her left in successive skiing. Accidents A nineteen forty seven car accident left Patrick with a head wound and severely ill. Hemingway sank into depression as his literary friends. Began to die in one thousand nine hundred nine William Butler yeats and Ford maddox Ford in Nineteen Forty F Scott Fitzgerald. Nine hundred forty one. Sure what Anderson and James Joyce in Nineteen forty-six Gertrude. Stein.

Don't have to put your mouth on it. You just blow in the direction of this machine. That's by the door in if it blinks red. Tommy has to go home and go to sleep sleep because he's got the flu or he's got a cold. Somebody blows into it when he's at home. He doesn't even come into school or whatever it is and so there's there's lots of reasons to create this this technology and even though in twenty nineteen it's sci-fi it is not going to be sci-fi twenty twenty nine so we've got a lot of time to get ahead of this now. The other side which is equally equally exciting and equally feasible is taking a bio manufacturing infrastructure and pushing it out what they call to the edge now pushing it out to the edge means that you take something that's highly highly centralized and you make it ubiquitous so back in the day computers all sat inside of these gigantic buildings owned owned by ibm now. Obviously we have computing everywhere. We have in our back pockets and all of our homes by a manufacturing. We've got with vaccines right. Now is if you wanna wanna create a vaccine. Let's with the flu vaccine for instance. You make your best guess about what the influenza vaccine or the influence of virus is going to be like in north america work in nine months. You spend months manufacturing a vaccine. That's targeted at that best. Guess right we while influential so is is mutating wildly. There's going to be slightly different strain in buffalo than there is in detroit and you've got us manufacturer all the stuff it takes months. You've got to ship it. You've got a story. You gotta refrigerated and we do an okay job. We still lose just in the united states alone. Something like twenty to thirty thousand deaths per year to the flu right okay now what happens if some diabolical person makes a pathogen and they release it in you you know the center of chicago and we're not gonna have six months to manufacture this. We're not gonna have all this time to ship it and so forth but what you can do is take leverage three d. printing printing technology and there's already a lot of research. That's going into printing medications and there is no reason that you can't print vaccines. Where do you want to print vaccines. You don't want to print them in atlanta at the centers for disease control and then ship them everywhere. I think you want to print them. Every single pharmacy sure right right so so you could have the the pharmacy. I'm missy deliver the medicine to you sixty thousand distribution point sixty thousand manufacturing points and then you have it in every doctor's office and there's no reason again if we go deeper into the curve you have every home right okay. Oh i'm imagining this right now like so if we've pathogen detectors on the phone my phone could say hey. You know a lot of your neighbors. Have this strain of the flu. You're probably gonna get it. If you hang out in your neighborhood with your neighbors or your office yeah yeah because it doesn't even have to be around you could say you work with rob jordan jason and jenni they all have this in europe to walk into a room with them them or they had it last week.

Perhaps combination of the two this clip is taken from the American experience on PBS. There was once a town in the heart of America, where all life seemed to live in harmony with its surroundings.

"Like when all the votes are counted, the Democrats may have gotten their Blue Wave gradually, and then suddenly and while still being wrangled in Florida, we can draw couple of broad conclusions with senior Washington correspondent netted on elven Brown. Thanks for being with us. Could it be with his first because it's breaking just this morning. The president praised Nancy Pelosi on Twitter said she ought to be speaker, and even offered to get the votes is this the kind of support she needs or wants the president would like to be up against Nancy Pelosi. That's the kind of oppositional figure that he would like to have he already has in mind all the things he's going to say about here. So that's why he's supportive, and he's probably not going to be able to get her very many votes among the Democrats, which is where she's actually hunting for them. Does it hurt her though? I don't take it actually hurts her either. Because. I don't think the kind of people that she is trying to get votes from are going to pay much attention to what the president says so more than a week after the election. Where are we still adding to Nancy Pelosi's majority, if it's going to be her as speaker, they were up past thirty five seats have might wind up a little closer to forty and it is absolutely amazing to see longtime Republican bastions such as New England. Now devoid of a single Republican member in the house of representatives and the same is true in southern California's Orange County where they have six congressional districts as many as many states, and it was once the absolute bedrock of conservatism, even the airport. There is named for John Wayne, and they have now not one single Republican in those six districts, and what about the Senate, maybe they've been overlooked. They may have been overlooked a little bit in some quarters, but we've been talking about this since election night when it looked like the Republican majority might grow to fifty five seats from fifty one in the Senate that would be a pickup of four all in states. The President Trump won in two thousand sixteen. Now, it looks to be more like a pickup to the majority took away democratic seats in North Dakota, and Missouri and Indiana. And apparently also in Florida where an extremely close races not likely to be overturned in a recount, but then the Democrats took back to in Arizona and Nevada. So Mitch McConnell is going to have a little more breathing room. But on the other hand considering there were twenty six Democrats exposed on the ballot and just nine Republicans gaining a net of two is pretty close to baseline. So we're on a week out. What's your assessment of the midterm elections? Lot of Democrats were disappointed Scott largely because of outsized expectations. And they wanted a bigger and clearer repudiation of President Trump's than they got they were disappointed in failing to capture the governorships in Iowa and Ohio and Georgia in Florida and those high profile races, which also included Senate seats in Florida and Texas Texas was the better aerobic race against Ted Cruz. Those were letdowns for Democrats who hoped they'd produce a new democratic star. Maybe even a new media obsession akin to Barack Obama, I didn't happen. But if you think back six months, or so even a lot of political people hadn't even heard of a lot of these democratic candidates that they put so much faith in member. Instead what we really wound up with looked a lot like a normal midterm election. Lots of house losses for the president's party a mixed bag in the Senate with governorships going mostly for Democrats and restoring something close to. Parody in that category. And one of the things that a lot of Democrats may have overlooked other the return to democratic voting habits in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin. They're back to being blue states now for all major statewide offices. That's meaningful news for the party in terms of twenty twenty. A lot of anticipation about Robert Muller. But we don't know anything. Do we not yet? The president says he has answered his questions from Muller, and he's done it himself, not his lawyers. We shall see. What those answers are at some point down the road. Well, meet you down the road. Ron thanks very much. Thank yous got the Washington Post broke the story lay Friday that the CIA has determined with high confidence that the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammad bin Salman, ordered ordered the murder of journalist Jamal kashogi until now the president has rebuffed claims. The crown prince was behind the killing Robert Jordan was US ambassador. Saudi Arabia during President George W Bush's administration and joins us now. Embassador thanks for being with us. Thank you. What do you believe the effect of this report will be? Well, I think it. Lessens the options that President Trump has to try to curry favor with the crown branch. I think it makes it much more difficult. It probably also encourages congress to insist on more robust sanctions that we've seen after this point. I guess I ought asked to do. You have do you have any doubt about this assessment? Or do you think it is in any way, politically inspired against the president by certain CIA officers? Well, I think it's very unlikely that it's politically inspired. Although I do think perhaps the leak of it is inspired by psalm who would like to get a marker out there before. For example, any action is taken onto Telugu land the turkeys dissident residing in Pennsylvania. Rendition or extradition has been speculated about. The sanction the Trump administration levied against seventeen Saudis reportedly involved in the killing do you consider that a sheriff's response? No I've said before that canceling their visas really only means they can't come to Disneyland. I think it's a a token kind of sanction. And obviously there needs to be something more robust. I think we also have actions perhaps short of formal sanctions in the form of slowing down these arms sales apply. More pressure to wind up the war in Yemen to wind up to blockade of counter, and to have a very forceful diplomatic exchange here on the kind of contact we expect going forward. I feel the need to step back a moment. Recall after nine eleven fifteen to the nineteen hijackers. You found to be Saudi citizens. They were charges that the Bush administration Bush administration had been to soft and compliant in the kingdom which had tolerated extremism more than a decade out from that. Do you think several administrations including perhaps the one you served? We're just too too soft on the Saudis. Well, I think that may be the public image. But I can assure you I since I arrived embassador one month after nine eleven we were right in their face about extremism from day one. This is a private conversation that has to be had. And frankly, the the fact that we had an ambassador there for two years makes it more difficult to enforce our values and divorce our relationship. So, thankfully, we've now identified or the good. The president is now identified general. Labs aid who I have great confidence. And I think he will make some difference in the diplomatic exchange that needs to occur. But I think beginning with the aftermath of nine eleven we made it clear to the Saudis that watch the preacher their mosques, and what they teach in their schools is no longer an internal matter because it affects our national security as well. And when you said a private matter. We've just got about fifteen seconds. Jimmy, no matter of American policy, we have to talk about with each other. Exactly, it's not simply an internal matter for them. It's it's it's a matter of our national security and the intolerance extremism that they propagate is something that we have a national interest in rob Jordan, former US ambassador to Saudi Arabia. Thanks so much. Thank you democrat. Stacy aprons has ended her run for governor in Georgia from WABC in Atlanta. Jim Bruce reports during a fiery speech from her campaign headquarters Stacey Abrams, accepted the inevitable. I acknowledged that former secretary of state Brian Kemp will be certified as the Victor and the twenty eighteen gubernatorial election, but she was clear in her belief the camp didn't win fairly, but to watch an elected official who claims to represent the people in the state baldly pin his hopes for election on the suppression. Of the people's democratic right to vote has been truly appalling. Democrats accused camp of making it harder for minorities to vote in his role as overseer of Georgia's elections Abrahams referred to him as the secretary of suppression since election night Abrams had trailed by a bit more than one percent in hopes of forcing a runoff. She'd appealed to the courts and constituents that every vote should count Abrams had hoped enough provisional and absentee ballots were out there that is found and counted might tip the scales. Make no mistake. The former secretary of state was deliberate and intentional in his actions. I know that eight years of systemic disenfranchisement disinvestment and incompetence had its desired effect on the electoral process in Georgia since claiming himself, the Victor the day following the election. Brian Kemp had pressured Abrahams to step aside, he called her refusal to do so. Undemocratic following Abrahams speech. Kemp issued a statement writing he appreciated her quote, passion, hard, work and commitment to public service. He went on to say, the focus going forward shouldn't be on the undeniable political divide that splits Georgians. Instead, Kim said the focus should be on the state's bright in promising future. Stacey Abrams who would have been the nation's first African American woman to serve as governor said she would not be stoic in her defeat. Instead, she said she'll file a federal lawsuit against Georgia for what she calls, quote, gross mismanagement of the election. For NPR news. I'm Jim Burris in Atlanta.
