A bi-partisan committee…and Senator Lindsey Graham says he has seen no evidence from the Justice Department about it either but says if they don’t answer one way or the other he may subpoena them for information. Has this become much ado about nothing? Is this way the press should not pay attention to President Trump’s tweets?
A tweet about a United Airlines gate agent refusing to allow 3 girls, one 10, to board a flight wearing leggings exploded on social media and is now a mainstream media controversy. The girls were flying on a pass from a United Airlines employee and the dress code for “pass travelers” is stricter than other passengers. Do you consider leggings inappropriate?
Do you think the extremes are destroying their positions or do you applaud them for their unrelenting positions?
The extremes represented by The Freedom Caucus in Washington, D.C. and Take ‘Em Down NOLA may be destroying their own positions.

To go see Roger Waters of Pink Floyd this is going to be a sensory overload for anybody who goes I mentioned. The delights. And the sounds and somebody sent me text what about the smells. Yes what about the smells I'm sure there will be some smells in there if you know what I mean I mean come on it's Roger Waters of Pink Floyd. What do you think people do. I distribute the smoothie king center July the eighth had a got a pair of tickets the Pink Floyd song of the day is another brick in the wall part two. When you hear that I'll give out contest slide. And acuity color you win a pair of tickets and we'll be giving away tickets every day this week. So tragedy in Metairie. I mean I woke up this morning and this is one of the first stories I heard. And I thought you know here we go again. It really is all part of continuing conversation an interest in conversation that we started to have on Monday. It evolved into a conversation yesterday. And is a conversation I'm not gonna let die. Because there's been something really unique about this conversation with her on the ear to the last couple days. It's conversation about human behavior. From people who lived in situations that guided them within. And they may be utilities. Or maybe you lived in these situations and and maybe you're celebrating the idea that that people who. Who were raised the way you wore in the environment that you were raised in. That they have a platform to. Honestly talk about their life. And these stories have been compelling I've gotten text messages from people we've been talking about this. Who say that that call gave me goosebumps or I had a tear in my out. Let's start out by talking about five people shot to four are dead. Happen early in the morning. 12500 block of Pasadena. In Metairie between west employee and I ten nuclear area and there's a lot that we don't know. Jefferson Parish reports that the and I'm a once in a received a phone call from a female reporting she would shop she was shot in the head. Current journal fortune on a says stick to she's a university hospital. I'd deputies arrived on the scene found two males and females did in the apartment and then as they were searching the apartment complex. Saw an open door and found another dead body. In another apartment in our favor later I mean at this point we don't know. The chances are. Whoever committed this crime. Started out as a young criminal. End that's what our conversations and about. The honesty about what leads. Young people to become young criminals. And I think part of that conversation is also a tragedy that took place in Saint Louis yesterday. A twelve year old boy accidentally shot his younger brought. Damien homes and his nine year old brother were playing alone at home with a gun. They found a gun they started playing with they were home alone shortly before 11 o'clock. So already. A red flag can can go up. You connect twelve year old and a nine year old Paul Malone. Just before 11 o'clock at night is that is that wrong. They find a gun. They start playing with a gun. The gun discharges. Its Damien in the head. Not clear whether he shot. Himself or the twelve year old shot his younger brother. That is still not totally clear. Jamie was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead and police are not policed. The brother's name. What order we come back to here. Parents write. We connect to the home. We come back to the same. Thing. And it continues to have an enemy and this is 100%. Preventable. First of all. You know if you left a twelve year old home loan. That's one thing. But if it's twelve year old is the oldest person there and he's responsible not only for himself but also for a nine year old. Is that a little young to be in that position. Were you left alone twelve. Could she be trusted to be home alone a twelve. He's in general is settled enough. They look you know that the law is. That the law changes and in the law is it in some ways the law is is is kind of vague. But I personally think that that that's a three young especially if you put that twelve year old in charge of somebody else if you wanna comment on this. If you wanna comment on. The five people shot. Four people dead in in in Metairie. I mean I wish we didn't have this to talk about but you're here is a beautiful Wednesday afternoon but if we don't talk about this. And it seems like we're kind of ignoring something important that we should talk about. If you would like to join us this afternoon with your thoughts feelings and comments are numbers 260. 1878. Every coach Bible for. 2601878. Text embers a 77 years a text what's the contest line number aren't let me give you that number Simonyi to sit in the air tickets to see Roger Waters of Pink Floyd. The contests like this area code 504260. Wins just write that down. Are plug it into your phone so you can. It that is serious two as we announce a sincere thought the song another brick in the wall part two by Pink Floyd. So that's Erica final four to 609467. Here's a Tex I live close to that neighborhood and that area between west a polian and I ten. Has been going downhill ever since Katrina. Interestingly there are neighborhoods that have improved since Katrina. And they are neighborhoods that have gone down. Since Katrina. And I remember my my second apartment I almost rent an apartment on a Pasadena in memory so that was an area that I. Was. What eager eager relive it. In fact when I was in it in the progression in Kenner. And I thought about moving to the apartment of Pasadena and this was a step up I mean I was going to a dog and a nice apartment nice neighborhood. And I was excited about. It didn't work out. But I guess in some ways that neighborhood is. It's a little different. Is there anything to say about. The shooting in Metairie. We we don't know what plot. And I don't wanna be quick to speculate. But I would be surprised if drugs are not involved in this. I don't think these were kids. But once again. Here we are talking about. A tragic end. Gun control laws stricter gun control a soccer to change this. Because the people who are in this lifestyle. They don't give a damn about the law. And Erica follow those legal. Boundaries when it comes to owning a gun in handling the gun they don't care. And I would like to know more about. The family of this. This kid who was shot. In Saint Louis. Who with a parents. Where did they get the gun. How did the kids get a hold of the government. If you have a Garmin. I would be surprised. If you're not responsible enough to make sure that if you left a twelve year old and a nine year old home alone. How would be surprised if you're gonna is not secure. Because the person who doesn't care about securing a gun to me is not the kind of person who's going to be listening to talk radio. And they're not going to be sharing their comments witness but if you do want to join us for the comets afternoon. A numbers 260. When he seventy every coach 504260187. Tex ever 77 A I'm scooter the afternoon we'll get to your calls have analog Tex coming in August you're Texas well and we continue our conversation. When we come back. On WL. Here's a Texas says that I drove a tow truck on the east bank of Jefferson Parish for about twenty years in the area around Pasadena street in Metairie where this shooting took place. Has becoming drug haven for drug activity since Katrina. Here's a Texas says an earful of it like I'm nets I'm assuming that's directed to me. You're full of it if you can't have the same conversation about the white on white crime a white man kills his mom this morning another white man. Kills his girlfriend. And that's all part of this conversation off I didn't bring up race by the way. I'm having this conversation about about young criminals becoming. High criminals young people become colonels I haven't brought race into this. So why would you assume that I'm talking about. Young blacks. I mean sadly there's a disproportionate number of young blacks to grow up in this environment. But yet we've talked to African American listeners over the last couple days who have talked about how they. They had strong. Parents or grandmother. And they were around it but never became part of it. Also on here's an update on a pretty jacked up when you pull something else we're talking about this afternoon do you think president trump or somebody friendly to the president released. His 2005 tax information. 55%. Say yes we've got to shift in the majority in 45% say no give issue opinion by going to our website WW dot com. From Slidell Bobby welcome to the show. Current. You are not. Keep your primary. Term extension your thoughts about. Chill in the England. Aaron. I can recall. Were much orange and probably. I was more an Irish as much. I. Know. More yeah. Starts are built a career. You know war war. Ship. So that I can make more money. Yeah. Walking. Life. Without being more shall. The but what. If the blow. Bobby does it what would you have left a twelve year old in charge of a nine year old. 2:11 o'clock tonight. But that have been morals war. You think the time makes a difference. I don't know. Are. Very dangerous age. Old. Yeah. OK so you so so. So maybe the parents didn't have a conversation with the kids about the gun or may be the parents just left the gun out for the kids. Weren't there and the parents are I think that would put it. You know it goes. Noted. It went eight war. Up that you proper. Discussion we need to get the most work. Around solutions group. And and and it's only stem core two point. And I think they're also good possibility and I like a talk about this all the time he disagreed possibility that. These it's plagued with a gun in a manner in which they saw adults. Handling it gone in their presence. And challenge. I. Watch. And so. What really. These. Aren't things that. I mean that you do that. Who are better. You. Know. What. Their own power cord and you know the. Now I appreciate your call. Here's Texas says my daughter's thirteen a soon to be fourteen very responsible she was. 1213. She took out babysitting class and got CPR first a certified. So she can babysit. Here's another text of my brother and I were left alone in the suburbs in South Carolina had twelve and eight. But maybe twelve and nine is not too young. To leave his home alone. But they're too young obviously. If it's late at night and you haven't had a conversation with them about guns or you have an. Protected your garden you haven't secured your gun. For slight don't show you're never WL. Yeah and Janet are you good. At issue that's true. Yet there are a few people who think my name is scoop. Good student. Yeah. It. Our presenter and I don't sound like much it was. Telling them I'm sure these two sending and gentlemen. It turns out and that the gangster way. Canada and then well as well wars have been hops to India is. Now my neighborhood. Most certainly you know moments like among real bullets during. Joseph and you know that's you know that that's part of this conversation too slick you know kids Saddam. He's not afraid they're coming you shouldn't be afraid of your parents. But you should fear consequences. And obviously there's not enough I think and and and who sublime. You know it's it's not that I'm trying to pick on parents but I just think it's unfair for adults. And young adults to be so quick to blame no jobs no education. It's on its all this other stuff that's to blame. When in reality it really can be reduced to human behavior. Here's a Texas says so when it's a shooting like this it's always drug involved damn sure it is 4 o'clock in the morning. Odds like people on my people shot four people dead. And chances arts are struggling. And what about that that woman into Chile and her two kids. Three kids who were shot to her dad. Pathetic and we don't know about that eighth. I'm scoot CBS and WL news update with Chris Miller and we'll be back. Well The Beatles wrote this song. A long time ago. I understand people are curious about guns but you know like you got a responsibility to and secure your gun and make sure your kids know what to do with the gun.

Read that here's a Texas says outside the two largest property management companies. I am one of the larger property investors on both sides of the I ten. In the cause weekly if you quarter. Even though it has not been disclosed what happened you have to assume that every drug related. The problem stems from absentee owners and landlords. From several of the run down properties. The key is eliminate two limiting the problem begins with proper resident screening an application processing. Something that some of the newer investors. Has no clue how to do. If we. Do not get a handle on this soon the battery apartment market will follow the same path as areas of New Orleans east.
