Ten minutes after 5 AM it's the early edition of WWL for listeners on this the 23 of Jan 2015. Not Monday anymore. My point that out to let everyone know that they should congratulate and award themselves for having survived Monday. And made today than most people call Tuesday but and the early addition we call on Monday it. So Carnival Cruise Lines. Starting in just a couple of weeks will no longer election bring your own bottled water on board. And this is another clear example of the people who follow the rules getting punished. For the people who try to cheat the system. You can't bring your own water because. People smuggle alcohol on board in water. It's funny controversy yes. I've taken a lot hackers I really enjoy acres ever since it became nothing here in New Orleans I've taken advantage of it more years than not. I think it's a great vacation value and it's a lot of fun. Problem as. For people who feel like they needed to drink on vacation who have to be inebriated. While on board the boat. Have come up with many many schemes and plans and ways to smuggle alcohol on board because the drinks on the boat are not cheap. And I have seen people on the ships who drank more than it cost them to speak the crew. It seems that every time yet the one of those big. Signature drinks that they offer on board. And it says that one deputy get another one can't keep it filled the whole time they're out there on the deck or in the lounge or at the casino or whoever it is they are a lot of drink ago. These votes. So people come up with a ways because. The drinks are expensive and because they're fielding needed. To smuggle the blues a board people will take. There you smoldering soft drinks on board then basing this policies they would take this south drank. And they'd empty the box and they put a few sufferings on the end and put beer on the inside or other out call on the inside and then re glue the box closed. To make it look like you've never been open. I know people who have sat with a syringe. And emptied a water bottle through a neat little hole they make with the need. And then refill that bottle with vodka or some other similarly clear alcoholic trying to make it look like watered again on board. I know people who buy. Specific. Fake. Containers. That look like containers of other things to put in their luck to smuggle the alcohol on board that. Amazing the lengths people go to to smog out on about. How much does water cost them while they're actually going to be selling. Of the bottled water very inexpensively now what you get on board you can buy bottled water I wanna say it's like 299 for a case of some of these cruises there all inclusive all the foods included the water's not now you do you get unlimited water. Juice and milk. For even need to bring bottled water quantity and let people bring their own bottle to the wanted to never hours water as they wanted to in their rooms in Iowa and cabins they'll go up to. The players' dining room to get some water so that want to bottled water in the room. Or they see it as would smuggle out on board. Well but why did the cruise feel it necessary to allow people to bring bottled water port I guess it was taking water available for Rio won yet it gives they don't give up bottles of water on board. Even Gary glass and weary. They don't make bottled water available for pre. There are gonna sell it inexpensively. I think it's interesting because they have a problem they count on alcohol sales to be a significant part of the revenue. And if people are smuggling alcohol on board that reduces their revenue and I understand their concern it is funny price point and alcohol little more than what the market. Would beer that's an interesting question if they've made alcohol less expensive on board maybe that would deter people from smuggling and on. But I don't now I'd I don't know probably Franken I enjoyed. In fact. I'm a return cruiser that was ever returning cruisers party are we drink at that party because it provides real. Often now the welcome party with the captain tempting treats everybody in the give you a couple of free drinks. And that all right so after the first cruiser next cruise you deity a party. We're open yeah. They walk around and you regret. Because your return anchors and I want thank you and they usually welcome party was elected to that tonight you can drink if you want and then. Almost all the ports in the Caribbean Rico and you get very inexpensive alcohol on the bars means you can get a dollar beer. In Mexico or the Bahamas or words. Any of this ports of call. In now in. But some people this they got to drink all the time on board. And that gets very expensive I'm Diana people who racked up. Hundreds and hundreds if not more than a thousand dollars and alcohol bill alone while there on a ship that's because they didn't learn how to put vodka in the water boxes that the west and maybe some people just enjoy sticking it to the man yet well now left to concede Heidi in other ways if they wanna keep smuggling them. Thank you Chris doctor in fifteen minutes more first news WW attacks made it 77 have you ever or do you know anyone who's ever smuggled blues on to a vote. You bring a bottle wine or champagne at the lab. But every game hard liquor beer on board appointed by that from them and when you markers you drank from the timing get up to it that we go to bed. The amounts that would breakfast and then it just off a bloody Mary Martin didn't really he's infamous bloody Mary for breakfast and then just keep the train rolling all day long. Dex and it's an idiot and you think it's fair McConnell saying no more bottled water is humane people are smuggling booze on board in the water. We'll take your forecast in sports and after us. Text messages and 8787. Me what are your mouthwash bottle looks just like whiskey. And plays smuggle out on hookers and other persons on meeting go online and by bladders that you can hide in a monster clothes that you fill with alcohol. Centanni people get creative here wise it's so important to smuggle booze onto about. Now the person says it's because it carnival needs to charge more reasonable priced at reasonable prices for drinks. So since they charged him much he smuggled it onboard. Is it game I think to some people to see if things get away with that. And they need to drank one person says it's all about access on a cruise people also eat as if they've never seen food before. That's a good point we've seen it before and we're gonna see more of it. On this Tuesday partly cloudy skies we noticed start that day that later this afternoon will be looking for a few isolated storms like yesterday. About a 20% chance with highs near 93. Overnight tonight mostly about 79 with 810% chance for a shower. And an increase in as rain chances just a little bit for Wednesday and Thursday both after means.

It's like I said to. They do you know why can't this be out you know no one's more deserving in this city right here. Meanwhile saints general manager Mickey Loomis was asked about the latest incident surrounding junior Collette a video has surfaced showing what appears to be the outside linebackers swing a belt during a beach parole. Striking a woman twice. I'd rather not comment on them right now you know leagues get going through processing and some sleet that. That was already scheduled to meet with NFL officials later this month to determine whether any punishment warranted for allegations of domestic violence against the female has jazz bass back in January. Although that case was dismissed. Ellis Myles is adding another quarterback to the roster as former Purdue signal caller dean at lingual transfer to LSU. By rule they'll have to sit out the 2015 season but we'll have two years of eligibility remaining beginning at 2016. At least appeared in thirteen games thrown for 2490. Yards sixteen touchdowns and twelve interceptions. Vanderbilt is one victory away from successfully defending its NCAA baseball championship.

And hip hop music mogul Sean Combs was released on bail just hours after being arrested. During an on campus altered the patient with the UCLA football coach his son Justin to defensive back for the Bruins. Did he was held on suspension of assault with a deadly weapon which was eight at no bail according to a statement. They have four on sports talk which teams closest to winning a championship the saints pelicans or LSU football I'm Steve Geller and that your early morning looked at its. Lawrence flack two or three days gone Steve Geller with you on your radio junior what do you think hey this saints part ways with him now that he is shown a propensity to use at least have trouble surrounding him. With a second allegation of domestic abuse. The biggest problem from the is the fact that there's so it's gonna cost them more to get rid of them and to keep him seventeen map million dollars is still guaranteed they gonna have to claim that either way. Unless they can find a way to get out of that through one of the clauses in the contract. So to you it's about. Not trouble on the locker room not about the right thing the moral thing it's about damn this guys expense that we can't let him go the way things are going right now though. Even just yesterday junior go lip posted a 52 snapped chat video of him on a hospital Gurney. Doesn't say anything he's just being wheeled down the whole way so are we to assume now he's going for this pectoral surgery. But it's really becoming a east circus around him and I could see the saints got what a point coming. You know what it's just not worth it anymore but ran out and out that point right niceties too expensive to. Right now I just think they're waiting for the legal process to take course and see what happens and who knows what's gonna go on but if they can find the loophole I'm sure they'd be happy to get that video. And the NFL they think they come down our dongle that will he be suspended one way or another so I mean now this is all of assumption I think he's going in for surgery assuming. That he is gonna be suspended for a couple games so why not just going hadn't. Who follow through with this pectoral surgery now Steve Geller more sports in 25 minutes here on WW out coming up with talk about the confederate flag. Let's take a look at your forecast for this not Monday morning here on WWL heat. It's here in 93 later on today but of course it's going to feel more like 100 to even 103 for the afternoon. And not much in the way of rain but where there's storms do develop they will likely be on the heavy side look for 20% chance today. Dropping statistic 10% chance overnight. Highs on Wednesday and Thursday right around ninety cheated 93. And still looking at some spotty thunderstorms each afternoon around 830%. Chance. From the pinpoint forecast banner I mean to brawl just larva so. But he ate at the airport 75 and slide now are brigades every ready jaguar opinions Paul. Do you think the confederate flag is about hate our heritage 51%. Say heritage 49% say hate more on that coming up. Right South Carolina debating whether or not take down the confederate battle flag from the Statehouse grounds Mississippi now the debate on should they remove the confederate battle flag from their state flag. Folks to think it's time to get it out. Or should be kept for historical reasons 38 minutes after 5 AM at the early edition of WWL for listeners it's June it's the 23 it's 2015. And it's not. Monday just a little bit further into the week yet congratulations on making it through Monday give yourself Adam MacKey deserve it because it ain't easy sometimes. To get through that Thursday the workweek but we did it. And here we are and that without controversy man in the confederate flag controversy really. Caught fire yesterday. As we now have the governor of South Carolina calling for the confederate flag removed from the state grounds as the capital grounds in that state. We have some in Mississippi now saying it's time to redesign the state flag in our neighboring state because it includes. The confederate battle emblem on it. Sears and Wal-Mart now say there are no longer going to sell any merchandise with a confederate battle flag. Insignia. And is become quite a controversy in our listeners are sounding off texting estimates 7871. Person that the south lost the war. I believe and you end there's only one flag the stars and stripes. As as the confederate flag is like the N word has different meanings depending on who is using its and that what it means I'm proud southerner. As is sadly the confederate flag is now a symbol of hate too many. It should not be flown over pub ground. As a I think the confederate flag is about my heritage my ancestors fought under this fight you cannot be removed. Because of the actions of one individual. Doesn't confederate flag is part of history Democrats and liberals are trying to rewrite history. So it is you can see it's an emotional issue but it you know time as a way of changing just about every. And it's starting to feel like right or wrong. That. The efforts to get rid of the confederate battle flag the stars and stripes. And is getting closer and closer when major retailers who can make money selling this stuff feel like it's in their best interest. Take it off of the shelves. I think that's an indication of where our society's going. I didn't know you could get that borrowers a year maybe just because we've been to wal marts and uses you know. In any great length of time to notice while on Orleans where. You're probably not gonna find that if it comes with a T shirts. Wal-Mart is that he could sign here there. Confederate battle flag in in the design or maybe as the primary. I've seen people who have swim trunks. That have money shorts that have them have the confederate battle flag I see it I just don't see ports deal that much ranked now in some. And it has the time come to take it out and is this going to. Create more. Anger. Than it does good app. And I know people were really. Committed to you and feel a kindred ness to the confederate battle flag in Philly it's fair right. The display it or fly it and have it in now on there. Thing around their license plate and the actual flag or Wear them a clothing and I am just one and now this is going to be. Digested it interpreted out in the public is going to be interesting to watch and see in the controversies definitely I want our website dates haven't it's only temporary jaguar opinion on a split almost exactly 5050 on whether or not the confederate battle like eight or heritage. So it shows you it is definitely controversy out there on a lighter and stranger notes. A report out of Seattle. Where. Officials wanna note just how much we need is being consumed now that the state of Washington. As legalized. Pot. Have you heard about how the state of Washington and the federal government. Are going to study the issue determine how much pot use is increasing in Washington State yes they're going to take a collective urine samples to speak yes this is disgusting. Uncle Sam is chipping in for a three year study of sewage samples in Seattle and the rest of Washington State. Researchers from the University of Puget Sound they're going to test. The waste water to see how much marijuana pipe products. Are getting processed through the sewers. A 120000. The feds are paying for the project. The first legal pot shops open in the Washington. Last year to almost the. Are going to lie. Ray really the question for me what. Will this stuff ends up in the waste water gets treated in the putting back into the natural water supply but as waste water treatment. Removed. TH seed in this in these yeah there's some bit of water treatment on down the line removed and that filtering and coronation or dollars selling out DHC show up in the Washington State and while at a Colorado tap water at Washington DC Alaska in growing numbers stay a member Tulane did a study and found that a lot of prescription. Medication chemicals were found in drinking water season because it's just all coming out you know it's ought to be recycled the system but that's not something that's regularly caught. By sewage treatment. And later on water treatment. Just wondered about the guy whose job losses AEA cocktail party what you do for a living a lie test all the sure Watergate itself flushed down a system in the state of Washington deceit. How much pot folks are smoking. Ams I guess there was got to have a job. And someone's gonna have back to work out at me another way to figure this out without testing everybody's watched. Waste.

Meanwhile six GM Mickey Loomis was in attendance for gentry introduction of course the topic of junior a leg came up he was asked about the beach brawl video that surfaced which appears to show the outside linebacker.

On a six Dave Cohen Steve Geller with the on your radio tell me after getting to meet the new pelicans that coach Alvin Gentry how you feel on about is. Fervor and prediction that next year he and Anthony Davis in the rented the rest of the pelicans will be right there competing for a championship. Well is a definitely an air of positive but he surrounding this franchise right now he brings a lot of energy. I'm he joked that sixty is the new forty. And Andy slam dunk and a sixty we saw that video right very impressive and yet he said even it was hard for him to focus. On the warriors even after you know he had been initially hired by the pelicans because you want to get to work here. He's already talked with AD he knows some of these players on the roster already has a relationship with them. And yet there's a it's another positive direction for this ballclub I think it's going to be great to benefit fan base. We're not gonna see a modeling offense anymore it's going to be much more up tempo high flying up and on the court and a lot of scoring. Steve Geller. So that they can make it Q and win a championship sooner than later you'll be back sooner than letter fifteen minutes much sports on WW.

Like the guys at this on it French Quarter T shirt shops and other presence of the confederate flag has nothing to do with hate. That's what's in a person's heart.

Pretty dazed accounts at WW.
