"26 years ago Today, 168 people were killed at the Alfred P. Murrah Government Building in Oklahoma City in a domestic terrorism act. U. S Attorney General Merrick Garland led the prosecution of Timothy McVeigh, who was convicted in that attack. During a remembrance ceremony today, Garland said domestic terrorism remains a real threat. Although many years have passed. The terror perpetrated by people like Timothy McVeigh is still with us.

Merrick Garland Confirmation Hearing For AG

"But today is all about Merrick Garland. He'll appear before the Senate to take questions from lawmakers for the position of attorney general. Most people know Merrick Garland's name because of something that didn't happen. Garland never got a hearing after President Obama nominated him to serve on the Supreme Court five years ago. Here's NPR justice correspondent Carrie Johnson. Merrick Garland has devoted nearly 45 years to the law. But he didn't start out that way is, he told Professor Martha Minnow at Harvard Law School in 2016. Why don't you go to law school in the first place? Chemistry, well chemistry and math. Garland had planned to become a doctor. He wanted to help people one on one, but his collision with the hard sciences spun him toward the law, where he's looked for that sort of direct connection ever since. In the mid 19 eighties. At his law firm in Washington, Garland became a rising star. He made time for a young college graduate who worked in the copy center to Randy Thompson says Garland reviewed one of his papers, photocopied it and rearrange the paragraphs. That was the beginning of In essence and becoming a riding coach. For me, it was just extraordinary experience and became my coach. Eventually, my mentor and 30 something years later, a friend. Eventually Garland Road, MMA reference for law school and has kept in touch ever since, Thompson says garlands Still a little old school still humble, still looking to help. The only thing that really has changed about him, And I guess me as well is the color of hair. I don't know, well respected judge as attorney general. Help get the department under the quagmire of partisan politics that many people think it devolved to under President Trump and Attorney General Bar That's Georgetown law professor Paul Butler. He says the DOJ has been reeling from political scandals and racing to confront the threat from homegrown extremists. Merrick Garland has faced both before. After clerking on the Supreme Court. Garland took a job as an advisor in President Jimmy Carter's Justice Department. In those years after Watergate, DOJ struggled to separate partisan influence from law enforcement and establish new boundaries for the FBI. Garland also played a bit part in some of the biggest investigations of that era from political corruption to national security that Garland says later turned into hit movies. American Hustle about the Abscam case. Argo about the ex filtration of hostages in Iran and the most important the miracle on ice. Which was about the Lake Placid Olympics, where I did work on the security for the Olympics By the 19 nineties, Garland was prosecuting a violent gang that terrorized people in a public housing project. And helping build a case against DC's mayor Marion Barry. On drug charges Back inside Justice Department headquarters, Garland became the man to see for the hardest problems. The car bomb exploded outside of a large federal building in downtown Oklahoma City, Garland would soon travel to the site of the most deadly domestic terror plot in American history. 168 people died in that bombing in Oklahoma. Former deputy Attorney General Jamie Go Relic remembers watching that day with Garland by her side, he basically said while watching Children being pulled out of the wreckage. That he had to go. He really wanted to go. We both had young Children at the time and What we saw on those screens was so affecting. Garland oversaw the search warrants protected the chain of evidence and insisted that reporters have access to court proceedings. We wanted somebody Who could make sure that the investigation was done by the book. And that any indictment was bulletproof. Prosecutors later convicted Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols for their role in that bombing. Former prosecutor Beth Wilkinson says Garland played an important role in other confrontations with extremists in those years, including a standoff with the heavily armed Montana free Men. One of the examples I can think of is sometimes and there were these stand downs where there would be, you know, arrest warrants for someone, or there would be some kind of controversy between people who were challenging the federal government. America's first instinct wasn't to go in and arrest everyone. It was to try and along with the FBI to see if there's a dispute could be resolved. Wilkinson says. The FBI went on to arrest those men later. She credited garlands, quick thinking and cool head that may have prevented a tragic outcome. Just about the only criticism Garland's nomination has drawn is in the area of civil rights. Garland is a moderate, so I don't see him as the bold and visionary leader or racial justice that some people were hoping for again. Georgetown law professor Paul Butler that he's not an ideologue is both discerning for people who want an attorney general. To meet this moment of national reckoning inspired by the movement for Black lives and the killing of George Floyd Butler says he thinks girls just from the White House long time civil rights advocate Wade Henderson says Garland is up to the task. But Henderson says it's a big one. The next attorney general, for example, has to do everything In his or her power to fight for voting rights. Police reform Criminal justice reform and LGBT Q equality. For the past 23 years, Garland has been a federal appeals court judge in that role, he doesn't have much of a chance to share his personal views. Carolyn Lerner, the chief mediator at the courthouse, says Garland took an early, an important lead to update policies that protect workers from sexual harassment and other misconduct. I think it's very clear that Judge Garland cares a lot about these issues, and he really wants employees to be happy and comfortable in the workplace, and when he was chief judge, he took his responsibility. To these employees very seriously, she says. Garland wants to continue another of his projects at the Justice Department tutoring sessions with a young public school student. This year. The judge is working with an 11 year old boy and his twin sister. Your mom is Andrea Tucker. He makes this so interactive for them and so much fun and they can't get enough of it. It's the kind of public service that Garland has always wanted to

beirut explosion latest news

"Some exercises in perspective the IRA bomb which severely damaged Canary Wharf in London in Nineteen ninety-six was estimated at just over one ton of ammonium nitrate Timothy McVeigh's bomb which demolished a federal government building in Oklahoma City in nineteen ninety-five was just over two tons of the same material. The boss which erupted in Beirut's port on Tuesday was estimated at two. Thousand seven hundred and fifty tons of ammonium nitrate. One of the biggest peacetime non nuclear explosions in history as Bhai. Route begins the barely imaginable task of cleaning up and is understandably enough growing tear gas was fired yesterday at protesters near the parliament building I'm joined. Now by Lila Milana, Allen France twenty four's correspondent in Beirut Leyla. First of all, you have been visiting the port which was the epicenter of the explosion. I can't begin to imagine where you would even describe such scene but I'm going to ask you to have a crack at doing that the scene is as you say, almost indescribable does smoke still rising from the charred MBA's off. Destroyed packing crates destroyed shelving and it says every kind of. Utility things you'd expect to see in shops. Twisted. Washing machines on the floor items from pharmacies because this of course port, this is the one thirty functional in Lebanon imposed everything and everything was stored than in the center. You have the remains of these enormous grain silos that carried the grain for the majority of the country completely destroyed and parts of them. Still collapsing there you have a aid workers desperately trying to dig people of rubble that's thirty meters deep, and the conditions are horrific temperatures of thirty degrees baking hot sun. The air is thick and brown the smell acrid burning metal and plastic. It really is post-apocalyptic and this goes on for over a mile. Entire poor is just smoking twisted metal and daybreak. Nash. have. You got a clear sense of how widespread the damage across Beirutis. How far can you go from the blast without seeing broken windows? So it. was about nine kilometers where we're still doing things like breaking windows the impact of it and having people. That's it really has spread incredibly far, and it's an uneven spread as well because. What's happened is that the grain ciders positioned in a certain way which meant that it protected half of the city of West Beirut, which historically has in many disasters. Conflicts actually born the brunt of of problems in Beirut and actually deflected the majority of the blast towards the East and the south, which is why a famous areas like Gymnasium Ohio Asha fear completely The buildings there obliterated and one of the concerns now is a lot of. Buildings the older buildings in Beirut the few buildings left in the east of in pre-civil war, which were much loved already, quite delicate on the point of collapse yesterday as people were trying to clear the streets constantly civil defense volunteers trying to pull people back away from these buildings with balconies hanging down stone starting to crumble because of course, that's a huge dangerous. People are still sifting through rubble trying to find loved ones that buildings could. New Buildings that had not yet collapsed could collapse on top of the other issue is that the new builds a lot of them are concrete and speaking to an engineer what can happen with concrete is that with a shockwave blast like this concrete cracks easily under pressure and so that can be in tunnel cracks there that you don't know about in can't be seen from the outside, but the make the building unstable and because there's really been. Very, little help from the government with people trying to go back into their homes, clear up and see what they can retrieve and whether their homes are still livable. Many people going back into very unstable buildings and some living there because they have no other former shelter. So a real risk of further injury as buildings might potentially collapse over the next few days very similar to the aftermath of an earthquake, which is what this is compared to. A among the people who was serving the damage in Beirut yesterday was of course, President Emmanuel Macron of France undertaking a extraordinary spontaneous visit. How is that being received? I mean, it's it's understandable enough that Lebanese politicians don't want to interact at a personal level with the public at the not only for their own safety but is it being regarded as strange that the first high profile politician to to take a walkabout should be the president of an entirely different country? Well, it is strange, but it's not being regarded as strange. I was down on the street yesterday when McCone was was walking through glad-handing the crowd I mean, he really was you know playing up to it and was supposed to be going to Baabda Palace, the Presidential Palace to meet with politicians and delayed that for an extra hour on the schedule to stay with Lebanese people in the streets of course, playing up very much. The fact that he was there to see them he'd said before the visit my main priorities to go and be with the people of Lebanon. And extend, solidarity's to them, and then after that I will be dealing with the political varieties speaking to them. So in the streets, he was absolutely mobbed by people he's hugging people shaking hands with them people coming up tim saying, please don't give those politicians any money that corrupt criminals we don't trust them and he responded to one woman I know you don't trust them graffiti everywhere saying don't give one. Euro. To those Michael help us. So he really did make himself as I say a man of the people yesterday I spoke to a couple of young women afterwards. WHO said to me? That man was more of a leader to us in fifteen minutes than any of our politicians have been where all day no one has come to see us where are they wears the help and later in the day after a lot of commentary that. The. Obviously. Lebanese politicians feeding quite shamefaced one. The justice minister did come down to the streets to try and speak to people clearing up and she had water thrown in her face and chanting protest. Immediately, they're not welcome and that people absolutely fading that the government has no interest in safety in their health in their wellbeing and their ability to rebuild hiding away from them as everybody marshals together to try and get things. Back to nothing like normal but something livable at least just to follow that up finally, regular listeners may recall that you and I were speaking on Monday talking about the resignation of Lebanon's foreign minister and that seemed like a pretty big story at the time He's probably ruin his timing at this point but have you seen or heard anything in terms of actual messaging attempts to help or anything from the alleged government of Lebanon or d you kind of assume that they've all got to the point where they just realized the games up nobody really wants to hear from them anymore. It's quite extraordinary. There is honesty nothing happening in terms of that what the government is doing a lot of finger pointing at each other and previous administrations about who's to blame for this they've put everybody associated with the report under house arrest and saying that they're going to find the perpetrators. But of course, everybody's saying somebody else's the perpetrator on what we know so far it seems that for six years has been ongoing negligence at the highest. Level where a several reports were were built up by the head of the port and have customs sent to the government center the Prime Minister's Office the judiciary about the fact that this was a ticking time bomb and something has to be done completely ignored. So the government is going on about this investigation saying they'll find responsible meanwhile three hundred, thousand people in Beirut homeless, five, thousand injured hundreds still missing, and honestly all you can see on the streets is volunteers. The. Lebanese. breath volunteers, obviously with their ambulances civil defence wanting tears, young people armed with spades and rooms marching down the street just going into people's homes into buildings and sweeping up what they can and moving onto the next one cleaning up themselves. They all said to me of course not here we wouldn't expect anything else from them with the only people who can help ourselves and today international aid. Groups coming in different countries, sending their own firefighters medical support in, and still a complete absence of the Lebanese government anywhere except the poor area learn Milana Allen in Beirut thank you very much for joining us.

Lebanese officials blame explosion in Beirut on ammonium nitrate. Can something similar happen in US?

"In in Beirut Beirut yesterday yesterday after after a a massive massive explosion explosion rocked rocked Lebanon's Lebanon's capital, capital, killing killing more more than than 100 100 injuring injuring thousands thousands leveling leveling an an entire entire neighborhood. Lebanese officials blamed the blast on more than 2700 tons of highly explosive ammonium nitrate stored without safety measures. The same chemical fertilizer has been responsible for huge explosions here in the United States as well. And used as a bomb making components in international and domestic terrorism. So what kind of safety regulations exist in the U. S to keep something like this from happening here? Going to put that question to Joe words. He covers the environment for the center for public integrity, and he's written about this. Welcome to press play. They start having So what we saw in Lebanon has happened here in the U. S, right? I mean, maybe not on the scale of yesterday's explosion, but ammonium nitrate was linked to an explosion seven years ago in the town of West Texas, right. That's right in West Texas, 2013 you know there was a big accident there afire and triggered an explosion of 60 tons of ammonium nitrate. 15 people died. 260 people were injured, and this really just rocked the town. It destroyed Windows leveled apartments. It just looked like a tornado had ripped through the town. Before that, In 1947 There is what is considered to be the worst industrial accident in the US 581 people died. This was near Galveston, Texas. Andi was a similar situation. It was ammonium nitrate stored unsafely there that was involved in a big explosion. So this is You know, a common element of some of the worst disasters. How do you compare the one that happened yesterday? I mean, was it a similar level of of ammunition there? Well, you know, with one in West Texas, 1 2013 was an estimated 60 tons. It's early with the investigation in Beirut, but, you know, early estimates put the amount of ammonium nitrate stored there at around 3000 tons. So we're talking about a considerably more ammonium nitrate. And when we heard that first clip when you played it, I mean, you could hear that deep, concussive blast. It comes from, but it's it's It's like a detonation, and that's a real signature of these thieves. Types of explosions. It makes them wonder. I mean, what kind of federal rules exist to prevent these kinds of tragedies? You know, that's a good question. It's a patchwork of federal and state rules, including some that have been weakened in recent years. First, it's important to note that there's not a great You know, public estimate of how many of these facilities are around. The U. S Last survey done by the federal government is several years old, and it's estimated that there's 1300 of these facilities in 47 states. There's a couple layers of federal protection one through the AI. They require facilities that store this stuff to tell the government that they're storing it. Tell him how much is being stored and how it's being stored. That's supposed to be information that's available to first responders and firefighters in the area. But after the West Texas accident, Obama sent out this executive order and he really pushed his administration in the agencies to do more Teo to safeguard against these types of accidents. When President Trump's administration took over, they set about dismantling large parts of that rule. They took out some of the big elements, explaining that it was a burden to industry and the agricultural business industry pushed hard. Lobbied very hard to get those elements out of the rule. Well, it's interesting, just kind of the secretive nature of this. I mean, Ah, I also have a sense that you're kind of well acquainted with this. You're from Oklahoma. You lived in Oklahoma City for a long time. This same fertilizer was used in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, right? Yeah, That's right. It was used used in Timothy McVeigh's bomb. You know, 168 people died. I'm from Oklahoma City. It wasn't living in that city at the time, but you know, 90 miles away. I remember that day. Remember being pulled out of class during that day? Because you know we knew people that were, you know in the explosion. So since Del Carmen City bombing states have gotten really concerned about terrorism about domestic terrorism or criminals, getting their hands on On ammonium nitrate and so the public right to know laws or up against thes e safety concerns. What you get is really inconsistent quilt of regulations where, say in Texas this information is highly secretive state goes to right major lengths to prevent people from knowing it. If you can get that information online in other states like Nebraska and Iowa, even states like Oklahoma makes that information available. If you ask other states make it really hard or make the public go through these weird steps to get the information. What about here in California? I mean, this is a major agricultural hub. Were you able to learn anything about this issue in our state? Yeah, I requested info from California and we got a very confusing response. It wasn't clear They passed me off to other people. The information on paper is available to residents in California's They request it. It's not available in a handy Online way that many other states have it up. But I'm told the information is available if you requested it gets tricky, though, because you have to know the name and the address of the facility usually And then you have to find out where that information is stored. In most cases, that's a local fire department but usually have to call local fire departments say. Hey, I'm curious about you know this facility on The street. Can you tell me if there's anything dangerous being stored there, and in many cases, you may not know that stuff's being stored there. It's easier to think of like a like an oil refinery right or some big complex that Obviously looks like you know, it would be a problem is there was a disaster there, but the West, you know, Texas accident. This just happened in a random looking shed in the middle of a field. You would have no indication driving by this thing that it was storing. No. 60 tons of highly explosive chemical. We'll. Finally How does all this uneven regulation and lack of transparency put people at risk? You know, first responders and firefighters in West Texas and safety advocates have really you know, raised alarms about this after West Texas and then as some of the slightly tougher rules got weakened. In subsequent administrations, they say, you know, it's it's not clear that more could be done, Teo prevent these types of accidents and increase oversight and safety, You know, both from Public knowing what kind of risks air there from first responders and firefighters. That was something that came out the West Texas accident was firefighters that responded didn't really know the full extent of what was being stored there. So people are concerned about this and continue to raise red flags. Joe

"timothy mcveigh" Discussed on Today in True Crime

"Today is Sunday March Eighth. Twenty twenty on this day in nineteen ninety nine. The Supreme Court of the United States upheld the murder conviction of Timothy McVeigh the Oklahoma City bomber. Welcome to today and true crime. Apar- cast original today. We're covering the Supreme Court's decision not to hear an appeals case for the Oklahoma City bomber. Let's go back to the morning of March eighth. Nineteen Ninety nine to the office of Attorney. Richard Burr in Texas Richard. Burr sat behind his desk pretending to do business as usual. He was supposed to be reviewing files but really. He was waiting for news whether his latest client would live or die. Burr had been a lawyer for over twenty years. He took cases that other lawyers wouldn't touch defending people society had failed. He was a staunch proponent against the death penalty and today he'd find out if he'd won his latest battle months before he'd filed an appeal known as a writ of Sir show rare e for a client on death row. Every year the Supreme Court receives over five thousand writs of Sergio rarely each highlights the injustice that a person feels has happened to them in the lower courts in order for a case to be heard it needs to be voted on by at least four justices who believed that there is something up for debate however the court hears less than a hundred cases a year so bird new. The odds inherently weren't good but he had previously presented to other cases in front of the Supreme Court. He knew what he was doing when he sent up the rid of socio He also knew this case was different. His client was one of the most hated men in the United States. It had been four years but the sting of what happened hadn't lessened. A Ryder truck exploded in front of the Murrah. Federal building on April Nineteenth Nineteen ninety-five in downtown Oklahoma. The blast sheared off one. Half of the six-storey building killing one hundred sixty eight people including nineteen children. Shockwaves traveled miles away from the epicenter and injured over six hundred people. The attack had captured the national spotlight and burs client. Timothy McVeigh was the prime suspect. Mcveigh had been convicted of the crime on June second. Nineteen ninety seven and Burr had joined his legal counsel shortly after birth thought that the jury had been tainted by a false news report that his client had confessed to the crime. At least four the jury members had claimed to have heard the report but said that it wouldn't cloud their judgment bird disagreed. He believed in fair process and the courts he could only hope. Mcveigh got a fair trial. The phone rang and bird. Got The news. He wasn't all that surprised by what he was told. He knew how people felt about the bomb. Hell he knew how he felt about himself. Nevertheless Burr was still disappointed. The Supreme Court wouldn't be taking a look at the case. True Justice had failed his client. After hearing of the Supreme Court's decision he told the A P we had hoped the supreme court would be able to rise above the terrible human consequences. It is so easy to say no to Timothy McVeigh. The majority of the country celebrated this decision and believed McVeigh was going to get what he deserved. Death up next more about Timothy McVeigh's case this episode is brought to you by the completely reimagined twenty twenty four escape not too long ago. Driving seemed a lot simpler. Streets were less congested. And there were fewer distractions on the road. Nowadays a million different things are constantly fighting for our attention. Ford believes it's not enough to make a vehicle with technology. Drivers need an SUV. That's ready for the challenges of today and can help anticipate the challenges of tomorrow an SUV. That's built street smart. That's why Ford has completely redesigned the twenty twenty four escape there's Ford co-pilot three sixty a suite of advanced standard tack designed to help you feel confident in command on the road. The completely reimagined twenty twenty four to escape. It's not just smart it street-smart now back to the story on March Eighth Nineteen Ninety Nine Timothy McVeigh's appeal was rejected by the Supreme Court. Gave no justification. They simply weren't interested in hearing the case of an American terrorist. Two years earlier in Nineteen ninety-seven he'd been convicted of killing one hundred sixty eight people. In Oklahoma City. It was the largest act of homegrown terror in United States history. So what spurred mcvay to commit such a terrible act of violence. It started with his military service during the Gulf War. He didn't agree with the killing. He witnessed there. After he was honorably discharged. He moved around the country increasingly worried about the growing overreach of the federal government. This was amplified in nineteen ninety-three when the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and explosives attempted to raid a cult compound in Texas city of Waco the ATF had heard the cult. The branch Davidians had a large stash of high powered rifles. When they went to forcefully enter the compound they were met with heavy resistance and several of their agents were killed in a gunfight the ATF retreated and a standoff began McVeigh visited Waco during the standoff and even voiced his support of the call to a local television reporter. By this point he was convinced that the government was going to exercise their power to disarm the nation. He believed what was happening at. Waco would begin happening all over the country but he became even angrier at the government after what happened next after a months. Long standoff the ATF. Decided once again to raid the compound but things went horribly wrong in the ensuing siege. Seventy six members of the cult died in a fire. Mcveigh believed that the federal government was responsible for their deaths even when it was revealed that the cult leader. Karesh had apparently ordered the fires to be set. Mcveigh came to believe that the federal agents involved in the Waco standoff were headquartered in Oklahoma and he wanted revenge. Along with his accomplice Terry Nichols mcvay built a rudimentary bomb using fertilizer and gasoline. They've then loaded the explosive into the back of a rental truck on April. Nineteenth nineteen ninety-five two years to the day since the siege of Waco McVeigh parked the truck on the north side of the Murrah Federal Building and walked away. He was wearing a t shirt that said SIC semper tyrannosaurus or thus always to tyrants. It was what John Wilkes booth had shouted before he assassinated President Lincoln at nine o one. Am countless federal employees? Were beginning their day at work at nine. Oh Two a m. the bomb went off. The explosion left a thirty foot wide crater in the earth and completely destroyed the north side of the building it caused over six hundred fifty two million dollars in damage and injured nearly seven hundred people in the days. Following the explosion there was a massive rescue and cleanup operation and police were desperately searching for answers. Luckily they didn't have to waste their time looking for McVeigh. The authorities stopped the bomber merely ninety minutes after the explosion for driving without a license plate and arrested him for carrying a concealed weapon. His conviction came back with the wealth of evidence from the federal government. Not only did they have the Vin number of the rental truck that contained the explosives and witnesses. Who saw him walk away? They also had witnesses who swore they'd seen McVeigh and Nichols loading the bomb making materials into the back of the truck. After they were both tried and found guilty nichols was sentenced to life in prison. Mcvay on the other hand was given the death penalty. He challenged it which led his case to the desk of the Supreme Court where the justices denied it striking it back down to the lower courts on March eighth but even after McVeigh's case was turned down by the Supreme Court. He still had other opportunities to get off of death row. He started the process to get his case. Heard by an appeals court but quickly dismissed the idea. Mcveigh stated that. He would rather die than spend the rest of his life in prison. He knew he couldn't win against the federal government. They were the ones perpetuating violence all over the world. If they weren't going to let the Supreme Court review is case there would be no chance of a lower court citing with his appeal. It was stacked against him but he expected that when he started his personal war against the government on June eleventh. Two Thousand One Timothy McVeigh was given his last meal. He ate two pints of mint chocolate chip ice cream and was read. His last rites he was wheeled into the execution room in the federal corrections facility in Terre Haute Indiana family members of the victims were gathered in another room watching on a small television. It had been seven years but the pain was still fresh. He was stone faced and quiet. He never spoke to the people in the room directly instead. His last statement was read aloud by his lawyer. The Poem Invictus by William Ernest Henley. After a few moments he was strapped to the table and had several. Iv's stuck into his body.

We have our Monday readings which we are doing for you guys day. It is pretty hard for us to read, but we're doing it for you guys. So this one is a special one. It the title of it.

Veigh who Hanes once give background for to McVay. Why look. To tell you go. He was in the military. I forget what branchy served in operation Desert Storm in the early nineties. And he came back and he saw like the Waco standoff and Ruby Ridge and got very, very radicalized and became a domestic terrorist. Bought a shitload of fertilizer, drove it into federal building in Oklahoma City and set off a bomb and killed. I don't know hundreds of people pad guy, bad guy back dude, very bad guy. Okay. So the the premise of this article, we said, like how Paul fed Timothy McVeigh, and it starts basically going through every single Super Bowl loss at the bills had okay, relevant relevant for sure and said like, this. Imagine you know, having, you know, being a Desert Storm veteran coming back, having a shitty job and being diehard bills fan, like just painting this picture and like all these losses goes cut in there. The young man was Timothy McVeigh. He was a buffalo Bill, super vent, superfan. McVay grew up in. A rural town called Lockport just on the edge of buffalo, the fringe of the American fringe and bills football with sort of a religion for him. He was bright, but scrawny kid noodle, McVay bullies called him raise mostly by his father who worked at a radiator factory, and then it goes on to talk about radiator factory. Sounds boring. Shit job. That's tough. So he went jobs job, though, jobs job? No, we're not gonna job shame people. If you work at trader Joe's engine that fucking job shaming the Cosby guy fucked up. It was that was really fucked up like the guys working job. So it goes on to talk about how he was a big time, Buffalo Bills fan and watch them lose. And then we, we picked back up in the nineteen Ninety-three. So he's back home in buffalo. He settled into watch the game..
