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?

And look at meg tush oh it is good to be back with you and nineteen year under review I'm glad you're with this you know they were a lot of fun. Lot of people I've just blasting.

But we haven't gone anywhere. We're still here and I'm going to witness. With this cold weather I can't help but think about the gutter punks that you come to New Orleans.

With gutter punks. In New Orleans. As you know I've spent a lot of time downtown French Quarter French market throughout the downtown area so I'll share my stories with. Also the ESCO blood tonight is titled final thoughts on the ball snatching saints fans. But it's been talked about this has been our first show since that happened. And it just got a few final thoughts and I wonder if you thought about the things that I thought of doubts that I put in the blog tonight switches are trending up or web site. At WW real dot com. It's time for tonight's trending topic today two of the top eight things we'd like you know as we begin our show tonight here in Devi of you well. Number eight. And alright so who is it foolish people magazine's sexiest man alive this year. Actor. Chris. Hands more Penn's Penn's work. That's right Chris Hemsworth 31 years old. They're notorious. B starters for the dark side note the dark world. She still notably his route should you're not alone I mean he doesn't have a name like. Burt Reynolds and Brad Pitt and Patrick Swayze issuance kind of read Ben Affleck. Adam Levine George Clooney. Mel Gibson. What he's. He's a nice looking guy. If you like nice looking guys number six on number seven on tonight's with the trading top eight at eight. According to experts. Worldwide chocolate. Consumption. Is outpacing chocolate production. So right now there is a prediction. That there will be a chocolate shortage. I posted this on our our FaceBook page at last night affected the FaceBook page is now an interactive part of the Scotia. And if you haven't become friends if you are not part of that become friends with this say it's good to be to be real radio on FaceBook and we're gonna. I share some of the comments on our FaceBook go to questions on the show tonight and and every night. So I post a saw this and here's some of the comments I got class it's a question you know what chocolate would you miss the most. And Derek says. Or tickle wild guess why there's a shortage it comes from the the continent. That people wanna ban travel from an that is Africa yet there's are generally is or drought in Africa. But also the Coca plants have been affected by a disease. So world consumption. In addition to some problems with the cocoa plants themselves in Africa. Are leading to what is believed to be a chocolate shortage. Terry says she will miss. Hershey chocolate syrup the most guys that second goal weight toll restoring hearing I'm hearing it because that there will be there will be fewer cocoa beans. That. The chocolate may become diluted. It may not be years. Reaching. Savory. As asking that chocolates starts to melt your mouth. Out celebrating just thinking about it right now. Now what would you miss the most Sydney says Hershey's Kisses. Lamar says butter fingers would not be the same. Without chocolate. And Robert says I haven't found any chocolate shortages around here the baby increase prices but that's normal yet and there's always the possibility that. They're the chocolate manufacturers art in Lansing this possibility of a chocolate shortage to get you go out and get you to go lauded by some. To truck. So you know I'm gonna do I mean I don't need a lot of chocolate pitch if you repeat to enjoy chocolate you might wanna go up. Go out stock up as a chocolate I guess you could putter in the in the freezer. He is a text the cocoa plants got the bullet that's where that though they didn't get that they got some other some other disease that planned scan it and human stoke it. So anyway there's a possibility of a chocolate shortage at least we weren't. Number six on tonight's trending list of the top eight at eight. Is television infatuated with extramarital relationships. According to an article Huffington Post dot com which is. Titled. The title this warrior. It is titled. Why is TV so obsessed with a extramarital relationships. If that is the case. Why do you think that's the case. If there are story lines with extramarital relationships in them on TV shows why do you think Hollywood is promoting news. What do you think Hollywood's promoting it or is Hollywood reflecting. Those relationships that exist in the real world. If you listen to show on a regular basis you know that I believe that Hollywood more reflects. Society than promotes negative behavior. Hollywood can make you do something you don't wanna do but Hollywood does reflected negative behavior that exist in our society. And there are a lot of people who had affairs a lot of people had affairs on people having affairs. And the truth is a lot of people who haven't had affairs yet we'll have affairs mean it's it's sad. I am not condone and yet the that is a reality so that is reflected in Hollywood. And so my thought is with with social media the way it is. Do you think it's easier or is it more difficult to have an affair today than in the past. I thought about one thing. You can tell somebody your home and you're not really home if you're a self. Do you Sam I'm at home. But you could be anywhere. So does that make it easier to have an affair today it's something to to think about if you're concerned about somebody in a relationship with you maybe that they are having affair. Now also I thought about this and in relation to the extramarital relationships. They are always been TV characters. We're never known to be together never seen together and never known to be together. But there was always this implication. That they were having an affair. Or at least they wanted to be romantically involved with each other. So tonight. Let's talk about these TV characters. It was never known. That they were having an affair. But you can always tell that they they really want it to be dramatically involved with each other's civil war these couple under started out. But talking about the Mary Tyler Moore Show Mary Richards and Lou Grant. Never seen together but I always got the impression that. They were together behind the scenes or they wanted to be together if you wanna join us for the comic tonight about anything we're talking about our numbers 260. One a seventy. Erica 0504260187. In our tech's number is 87870. Number five on tonight's trending list of the top eight at eight. The news media has promoted a warning from the FBI. The warning from the FBI says they are will likely and that's a quote will likely. The violence following the decision by the grand jury in the case of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. Is this informing the public or is this. Infighting violence. I'm sure you've seen what I would describe as the buildup. To the jury making a decision. It's all over the news. There's this huge buildup yes and earlier this week misery governor Jerry Dixon issued a state of emergency in anticipation of the decision. So is the news media covering this story like the lead up to war. And does the news media emphasize one side of a story. Like a war or violence. Because it's more compelling than the alternative than peace. Now yes I have heard voices of people who say we want a peaceful protest. But haven't you heard a lot more from those who are predicting violence. And I realize that this information should really go to to law enforcement. But by releasing it to the public is that a good thing or bad thing effect one of the you know one of the aspects that they have talked about with this. This. Warning from the FBI is that there will be there there will likely be. Police officers and law enforcement officials around the country who will be targeted. As a result of the verdict and I get the impression that there may be problems regardless of what the practice. And if this if this officer Terry Wilson is indicted. Then. Would there be violence if the verdict didn't come out the way some people wanted to come out but I realize we can't trust. Our system of justice totally. In our system of justice had made has made great mistakes. But if this guy is innocent. If he was defending himself. Then mob mentality. Should not lead to an indictment. Or. A guilty verdict. Even if it's to try to make up for the past. We can't start sacrificing people's lives now. Because of mistakes made in the past. But the mistakes need to be correct it. But I just hear a lot more about. A lead up to violence. Including this morning for the FBI that there will likely be violence. Against police officers and law enforcement. Following the decision. Then I hear calls for peace if you wanna join us tonight our number is area code 5042601870. In a text numbers 877. Before tonight's trending list of the top eight at eight. Via talk about the sexual assaults. Allegations against a Bill Cosby and this is just won't go away. Bill Cosby's not commenting but yet another woman has come forward and said that she was sexually assaulted by Bill Cosby. This time it is. Pursues I'm I'm not really that familiar with the her name is Janice sticks and she says known at Dickinson she's known as a model and it and TV host. As she was on Entertainment Tonight I'm sorry blowing at definitely with her work but I sorrow and Entertainment Tonight. She did an interview she beautiful woman she says that in 1982 Bill Cosby assaulted her after giving her wine an appeal she was trying to get a part on the Cosby Show. And this is the the accounts at other women have told are similar to this account. In fact that's one of the reasons why. Experts believe that these accounts are credible. Because. They're there are common themes. With all of the stories. And CNN's Don lemon who I have a lot of respect for. He asked a question that many believe was crude and very very inappropriate he has been blasted. On Twitter finesse. When CNN Don lemon asked the woman the other day who came forward said bill cause fever picture. Arts sexually assaulted her. This involved oral sex. He asked her he said. Why didn't you. Use your teeth as a weapon. Now I'm back and get graphic here but you know we're talking about. Why didn't she use her teeth as a weapon. And a lot of people said debts that was crude he apologize for but that he kind of continued to. Ask the question why did you. Bite him. Now since I've never been in this situation like that. I can't. I can't. I can't talk about what would be going through my mind. But I would think that if somebody is. Is getting you to do something like that. That you would feel threatened by the person who is having you do that. But Dan is there. Is there an opportunity to just simply. Not do it. This is a really complicated story and it's not going away and you've heard in the news that. There have been some TV shows canceled. With Bill Cosby in them that has been a scheduled to to call yourself. So this is not leaving Bill Cosby and the fact that there have been so many accusations over the years with the common themes. And least many people to believe. There's a lot to this. Number three at tonight's trending list of the top eight at eight. Should we learn from the saints fan stole the football from the Bengals fan. This group like tonight is titled final thoughts on ball snatching saints fan here's something that I thought about. If this guy if this guys justification is hey it's a free for. I had a chance to grab the ball I had the strength to deleted saying this but if he had the strength to do it and the opportunity. He took advantage. Of overpowering somebody because he had the opportunity to do that's is. That's his explanation I could do it's I I took the ball. Well what if there was somebody bigger in the stands close to him in the grip the ball out of his. Or were these walking out and somebody said hey I want that ball. This guy seven years old there a lot of people in this world this guy could not stop. So they can grab the ball right from.
