Congratulations to the hornets they dominate the Celtics tonight in the home opener in the -- Winning 97 to 78. I got a good feeling about this hornets team. Glad you're with us tonight we're getting very close to New Year's -- answer -- there -- a great time to be in New Orleans -- if you're somewhere else and. Country and you're not hearing not going to be here for New Year's Eve if you ever have an opportunity to pick when you come to New Orleans and if you could come New Year's Eve. It is a wonderful time to be here it's not hot it's not humid it can be warm and I think we're gonna be in the seventies or buy New Year's Eve so I'd be very very comfortable but. The on the the effort that this city has gone to to make new -- spectacular celebration. In this city right Jackson square in downtown on the riverfront is there really truly amazing and if you have a chance to come New Year's Eve. Come to New Orleans and if you're here or if you're headed in this direction and you're gonna be here for New Year's Eve if you haven't seen it before you are in for a treat. You know this is usually -- of -- game on a lot of holidays Christmas Christmas Halloween. Gives -- is not just Mardi Gras more we weren't weren't a destination for lots of stuff you look up those big arbor day celebrations in the future. All right now I'm waiting for us to turn Groundhog Day into a big celebration here today at a -- trail fresh out of a a we're talking about breastfeeding protest that took place today as a target stores across the country schedule for 10 o'clock this morning. And a hundred different targets -- I don't know how many people actually -- participated. But this was in protest to a breastfeeding mothers feeling. Like she and was doing something wrong told the she might be arrested for indecency. Because she breast fed her child's. In a target store and I I you know I I I can't help but think you know that is a very natural thing happened between a mother -- child. And there's something wrong with us as a culture. If we think there's something wrong with breastfeeding in public it's a much bigger deal in America that it is a lot of other countries. -- talking about the senator real tragedy involving a 39 year old baby sitter who admitted to killing and dismembering a nine year old girl he was babysitting. Yeah I know a 39 year old man babysitting and nine year old girl what's wrong with that there's a lot wrong -- The mother had put the daughter in this in this situation is -- to blame she is totally distraught over what has happened. -- she certainly bears some responsibility. And it really brings up a bigger question about how difficult it must be for parents and my son's grown so I've -- had to deal to settle a long time. But when you think about all they're -- -- missing children and a child molestation you think about the Casey Anthony case. -- -- you get to babysit your kids. And are you sure you can trust him -- -- files and people prone to becoming sex offenders even if they're not sex offenders yet. You don't necessarily know that. Before they do something. So is going to be very difficult for parents to figure out who to trust with their kids. In Tennessee Q you're under -- WL good evening. Don't let up Richard -- look at Oprah barn door at school. -- -- 400 ordered -- a cult or ladies British treaty this time you very. Granted diplomats of -- Olympic gold really -- -- bruises and Steven Tyler looked great and you. I'm glad I thought on the tube lately but pivot that you can't do query. Out -- -- And -- commitment to -- -- -- actually when he created in orbit -- who have. Read all about it art school. He doesn't he said he was a league high school players so therefore he was qualified to say that Drew Brees. Is overrated. Yeah -- -- off we were built look at other better true true always going to be your child born president. -- we won't know the critical. I think we don't we could take the good quote true belief -- -- safe to breathe a great quarterback. And that's all the Serbian a couple of very good to route to -- -- a great job out pleaded let's say -- Well you heard -- legitimate sports fan if you it if you are not so. So hung up on your team is so supportive of your team that you can't admit that -- know the players great. You know I've always admitted that Tom Brady is Izzo is an incredible quarterback and Aaron Rodgers is having an incredible year. It was great last year they're they're they're Green Bay Packers had no Super Bowl hangover and they deserve a lot of credit. Right now. I I think Drew Brees is the best quarterback in the NFL. People are doomed to repeat these and as well what we've seen over the last few years. He Drew Brees. Atop folks which -- you want to patent. Don't trial and error and troops which are you want to move to where there will be -- all of firmer but it's a big game won't confirm. Atlanta march -- both got -- protect every. Week defense Alford has -- -- You can feel -- supporters thought of people doing what they do and problems crop aren't ball but it -- it -- Camera. Of fair amount of America's team took a -- admiration. -- down burned ought to order our very trying this year the Colombian approach isn't very comfortable and argue that illustrate what an. While that would be -- be a tremendous. Super Bowl but Drew Brees and Diane Brady and of course that means that the saints are probably gonna have to go to Lambeau Field in Green Bay and beat the Packers. And home in January which is on an easy task beat the Packers is not easy beating anybody. Ed -- Green Bay in January is difficult. It was not about -- out of the pair -- field or -- I was there lot of -- I don't under. Diluted -- would -- a lot of system on route under the field or into the ground as there are deployed in the spirit it. Big -- been prevalent with very important because normally don't put bigger total. -- and enjoyed I enjoy targets in -- very happy new year. All right thanks for a restless and in Kansas -- you're on WW LA good evening. There are you doing. Curled. No I'm on the broad street -- -- to secure those. Ugly there is the only way to go I don't know if you heard nor last week that it. Similar to and other formula. Simple -- believe they're good -- -- opposition old dues go to bacteria has been killing babies nationwide. Yeah and we've learned more in in recent years we've just learned so much more about how healthy it is to breast feed your kids and you know it's it's unfortunate that some mothers. -- aren't able to do that British if you can do it that is the way to go you're right. You know nobody is Cronin. Well and hopefully -- certain baby monitor a new role on very. When they do is sort of like we should be Europe so inflation they opened the -- Okay we're going sort of remove we're gonna look third is joked over dismembered remotely tours of communities millionaires in the -- well. Well you'd like to think that there would be something that would prevent this from having -- happy new year or two listening up in Kansas in Hammond a lane you're now on WWL. -- -- -- -- into -- TimeCrawler and one analyst call on about it is that true -- -- main -- to. Warrant is about the man went down. Why shouldn't baby kitten. It's not always that it happened that way you do they have other good baby and it. And I am my form or one life Lauren. Which we're not gonna surgery ain't got screwed up because she decided to leave and get married and at and -- and it -- -- made. Out of the context that I hit all playing and I'm mustard I had a redo. On the issue of the baby at young child I got murdered. Now I -- sit and listen to you all that night part of the day. It may change side dish out may have band you've got handicapped by -- com. That this mother -- rely on someone else other than. A life and our friend baby -- And then made it sound like this man took more than they had managed on this child because. She was handicapped man mentally challenges from. In terms of full advantage of hot and merited. Well apparently that's what happened he has admitted to he's admitted to doing it -- and -- -- and is as sick as it is to murder somebody. On top of that he took they had the hands in the feet put them in the freezer after Smith render. -- challenge the outfit Palin from. Even my child regards I am I gonna try and Iran are Duchamp. Even if it's a trailer -- You know and and get somehow find themselves all -- them which Freeman and but then my hand and made -- this -- seemed like this child may have been handicapped. Well you may be right you know likened I can look into that and and and see but it even if that word the case just excellent -- -- -- -- on Larry I -- of course it. Paulina and I'm glad you a little and I appreciate the fact that Jews are never done this before but you've picked our show article. Not -- or not we'll thanks for listening and I'm very happy new year. You all thank you -- and on the at the two phone calls with that that Atlanta Falcons fan Greg from Atlanta our on our website if you -- I checked those out a designated that the number one. Story at twelve to twelve on Nolan dot com. And we put him up on our website WWL dot com if you wanna hear the original -- it's really it's hysterical to listen to the first call this -- this falcons fan and made because it was the Monday before the game was that it was during the day before the Monday Night Football game. To hear what he was predicting -- saying about the saints and the falcons. And then to move. Put that in context with what happened at the detained it's like -- what planet was this guy owned by. It's it's interesting to hear what some falcons fans. I think of the saints in bettors think of New Orleans also that we have a follow up call that he had made last night of the show but that's on our web site. WWL. Dot com. This 39 year old baby sitter and I you know I I hate to judge people based on the way they look at I know it and it's really not fair. But honestly I as it is I saw his picture on the news last night a side -- he did it. I don't know why he looks like the -- and again that's very very unfair and I I admit that it's unfair but he's admitted to doing -- so. I guess my first instinct was right color projectors a text that says come on skewed. Did you see a picture that guy has so the picture that -- this is -- so that they chose a damn well. Here's another Texan Reid says in all those who have a problem with the same surge is showing their fear playing like they have been. No team in the NFL can match then. Here comes another Super Bowl. Mr. Atlanta you know I've I have a feeling the saints are gonna I get there we just talked to that there. Cowboy standing in Tennessee Q who's said -- even though he's diehard cowboys fan he thinks the saints and the patriots are gonna play the Super Bowl together. And -- what what a great match up that would be. And the saints are playing better than the patriots right now we're so I think they would do win that game but to both teams have finessed quality quarterbacks both teams are financed teams that would be a quite a match -- for the Super Bowl and I'm sure the NFL would love. To see that match up. So we're talking about this. This nine year old child who is that was murdered and dismembered by a 39 year old band. I don't know if he was a sex offender but this that took place in a trailer park. Where there were I believe sixteen. Registered sex offenders living. Including. It's just what some kind of a sex offender community. Including the little girl's grandfather who passed away December 3. He was a registered sex offender and convicted. Of sex abuse. Who do you trust when it comes to babysitting. I have to honestly tell you I've I've I've never been molested. And it's so sad to hear people -- later in life finally come to terms that we really saw a lot of this with the the case of third -- Jerry sandusky. The F former assistant coach at Penn State we really learned a lot of doubts that was one of the things we learned 2011. If you see something reported. And there's some sick people out there and it's almost. It's almost as if you can't trust. Anybody. It's almost as if you have to assume somebody might be dead. Right away rather than giving them the benefit of the doubt. And a tour on the show we'll talk about some of the things that we learned in 2011. And one of the things we learned wise if you see some if you see a child being molested. Reported. Stopping if you can -- reported and yet those people off the street they're sick. I don't know whether it's technically a disease. I've got a little studying a fan of pedophilia because I've I have to talk about around on that the show sometimes unfortunately these things come on. But it all the setting that I've done about it there's no cure for it. The only thing you can do is -- is try to treat people. I.s so that they don't act on their instincts and again and as somebody who could never ever do that or even imagine doing that. I don't understand that instinct. I have no reference point. To try to understand why. A grown person words. Molest. I child sexual right I have no coverage I've I've read about it I've read it it's not about powers about control it's about if you don't fit -- with your peer group. If there are a lot of reasons for it none of -- -- alluded to legitimate excuses but those are are the reasons exhibit the characteristics of data files. I remember when I was about I guess I was twelve years old. And I tell the story on the air force official and I was on a business trip with my dad. My dad took me to Oklahoma City with a -- was during the summer. And it was a business trip and he left me alone in the hotel room. During the day he went to a no he left in the hotel -- midnight he went to a banquet. Down in there in the hotel. And the next day. He had a girl come babysit me. It was the hat check girl the coat check girl. At the the banquet that he went to -- in the hotel. And I didn't even realize this until. A long time later. My dad. Was trying to. Give me my first experience. If you I don't know how stood -- worded. And I don't I don't blame my dad. My dad was I guess old school in part of the generation that you know men were proud when their sons were. And worry we're experiencing their first sexual experience -- twelve years old. And I I remember she tried to kiss me and touched -- in a hotel room and I actually locked myself in the bathroom. I remember when my dad came back to the room remember him. Talking to her and she said. I tried I'll never forget this. She was she was cute I mean I was twelve years old so I knew -- woman when I saw a -- woman and I and how would she was maybe 1920. I do remember very specifically she was wearing out a black dress but she tried to have sex with me. And I like myself in the bathroom and I overheard I was still in the bathroom in my -- came back to the room. And I overheard her say I tried to he would let me and elect himself in the bathroom. And I never ever. Talk to my dad about that never ever. I talked to him about what he -- I'm trying to do and again I don't blame him and nothing happened to I was able to. You know again like myself and in the bathroom but that is his closest I've ever come to being molested in in any way it and all. So on my. My thoughts and prayers hand does sympathy are with all of you who have survived being molested. In -- look -- Ryan welcome to WWL. I was -- we're gonna put -- on hold and inject check with Ryan onto our turn is rated when you get a chance. I'm -- in forward Tommy Tucker hang on we're gonna come back with them.

If you wanna get to the attention of another -- to appreciate both of you look at it as you know Steven Tyler took -- exactly. Here's a -- Reid says Steven Tyler has given us a few decades of great music at least. We are the least we can do is approve of this marriage Steven Tyler all the white.

In punch to a Paula welcome to our show tonight. Hello Paul how -- you are good you are science. Student unwritten can -- and for the most part I agree with just about everything that you say what -- radio. And -- send -- -- -- contradicts -- it used to match you're given a story about your. Kicking cheer they actually enjoy and eat certain in the young lady. Your -- and such that was. Sexual appears. Well you know and in the context of the world today yes have back then we didn't think anything of it or not I never. I never blame my -- it will -- to make sure that you understand what happened it was -- It was it quite late Q present and it. I'd like my dad took me to tomatoes on a business trip with him mister in the summer we were in Oklahoma City. And never forget it we safest urban hotel which was our classic hotel and in downtown Oklahoma City. And my dad's had gotten the the the coat check girl -- down at the bank with that he went to on the night before. To come babysit me during the day while he was gone I never thought back on and why it was okay for me to be alone in a hotel room -- nights but then he wanted me to have this baby sitter during the day. And my dad was old school in my -- to and wanted me to have my first or sexual experience in this or woman tried to his both she was -- young -- are obviously a well -- get older teenager was about twelve. As she tried to have sex with me and I managed to lock myself in the bathroom until my dad got back tonight. Never ever never ever asked him about that but I figure oh I figured out what he was doing. I understand that generation bank and bad do you think it may be jumping -- June. Atlanta lie to you don't like its outlook in the bathroom. Well immediately is if I like myself in the bathroom obviously something wasn't right. Well no way did it it wasn't rights and I'm sure a lot of twelve year old so would've taken advantage of that opportunity I remember her being a very pretty young lady. I wearing a black dress but for me I guess I was so shy and I vent it's just he wasn't the right thing for me in which you try due to kiss me and and in touch me I blocked myself in the bathroom. I'm and Derek thanks a lot to say on the radio. And I can arrange -- that. Well it's it's true and -- you know I think that the best talk radio is is alive and it's it's honest and sometimes I'm I'm very honest about. My license things -- experience it again I. I'm fortunate I'm on scarred nothing -- nothing happened night. I never blamed my dad and and keep peace pastor wave but I had there was never time went I was too embarrassed -- even bring it up to and even though years later. I figured out what he was what you're trying to do. I'm sure you are in the right spot poet once he was hit by Dan was part of that generation that denies -- my son I wanna give him this experience and you know this is cool. Of course I'd give it. Doesn't bubble aren't exactly he was part of that generations so I know it was not malicious in in anyway he was -- he thought he was doing me a favor. And I'm not I'm not here cute tickets regarding it and choose your Italian -- because -- believe or what it in pink here as well. Was -- and islands. I never just I've never discuss this with my Brothers and sisters or anybody and in my family and I never talked about this. Well thank you to bring an end up on the radio. All right Paula case thanks for listening to the show -- punch through have a good day out. -- -- your same deal. Here there is a good night here's a Texan Reid says Steven Tyler's girlfriend looks. Like his daughter because his daughter looks like. Her mom he obviously likes that type. Well I can see how how live Tyler would do look like you're her mother because that's her mother. -- I don't know which you find settled little creepy if if you were marrying somebody who work. Looked like your daughter -- another thing to take into consideration as he didn't raise Liv Tyler. He came into her life when she was grown. Here -- So still that you inhabit deep seeded -- Relations with the daughter -- still aid it's it is still a little weird to maybe anyway I don't I don't criticize the age difference at all. A poll has been taken. Asking the question what celebrity would you most like to have. As your neighbor. Who do you think. The celebrity once the number one celebrity who would you most like to have as your neighbor. It was Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow. Now there's a guy you could trust babysitting your daughter no matter how younger daughter is or how old Tim Tebow is I would totally trust Tim Tebow. Babysitting. My daughter I'd prefer Drew Brees. I -- Drew Brees still. Both because Tebow still young. And there's always a possibility that you might get some -- come out on him at some point all I don't think so I don't X I don't expect I would be very disappoint I don't expect it but I'm just saying it -- guys only what Tony to Tony three years going to be very -- -- -- a lot of time. Turn first on the come out about that guy well we don't he's almost too good to be true and you hate to be that way. But nowadays you almost have to be that way well we have we've been disappointed many time we have over people that he never thought we'd do it would disappoint a lot of times the ones -- allowed us about being a good guy or not so good until I wanna go on the record there was saying that I don't believe that's gonna happen and with Tim Tebow -- you do bring up a legitimate point and that is. You never know I'm not accusing the guy -- thing I have no idea if he's got any dirt on just saying. A lot of times the guys are allowed us about being a good guy -- sometimes the worst offenders and in private gallery certainly trust Drew Brees with with the daughter I would trust Drew Brees -- With anything in my house. All right coming in second in the survey of who you would most like to have as a neighbor well if they were your neighbors your battle like kids Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Coming in third place. Jennifer Aniston. Since your friends or your neighbor you know you might try to look over the fence and -- if she reserve sunbathing but Jeff -- Geneva on one side there and I have Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie on the other side that's true. All right so -- who -- the worst potential -- according to surveys and taken the entire cast of the Jersey Shore I would agree with that. Charlie Sheen. Lindsay Lohan. Kim Kardashian. Nancy Grace and the sexting ex congressman. Anthony -- I would disagree with Charlie Sheen but he throws great parties all I'm sure he throws great parties but you might not want to you might not want him as your neighbor because of that very reason -- maybe three houses down. I here's here's a text that reads and -- I had a similar experience only. -- it was only it was only two girls. That I didn't think. Were were put up to always to goes that he didn't think were put up to it. Many. May have just wanted to make me uncomfortable. And it works so he's -- I guess what he's saying is said to. And if he takes two girls were not necessarily put up to a they might wondered who wanted to just make him feel a little bit uncomfortable is another Texan -- I've got a lot I see. Come on basically all model tight brute Nance look like Liv Tyler. A Tebow and Brees both close calls I don't think that all model -- quickly -- -- she served very very hot in Atlanta William you're going to be WL. Yeah it's it's a pity and anger I -- on -- either and it actually is mourning the -- but -- guards were on you. Sorry current bad government making the world a short and brief. Can't we get the American people. Including the media can't we want. Just allowed this man not you know not focus on the negative book focused on the pop the here. At this man is going to kept saying he's it's a great guy you've been outstanding human being have a problem. Breathing got on TV that we need to that's what it. You know. You know what that's pretty cool with me you know so wildly. Got people's outlook for the negative. And -- focus on the positive and and parties down yet he continues to be and not quite. -- god fearing big volume in gaining god -- can -- kids. Don't turbulent time they'll -- they need that we need more people like ten people many more -- white man. In the world period and so we -- our honor held from a standpoint of being a good defense. A great human being and a hard disk they may keep doing it for. LA like I totally agree with you and I've been very supportive of -- Tim Tebow. Openly displaying his. His. Good devout Christian faith I he hasn't done anything. Vance. I thought was over the edge she's not trying to force religion down anybody's throat he's just recognizing. Under god in his life and I don't think there's anything wrong with that it's at its its amazing that are so many people have looked to criticize him but they're a lot of us. A sports experts who just. Are are critical of him because he's not the classic quarterback. And he he does it have a classic throwing style yet. But he's with the Denver Broncos John Elway is gonna work with him. And he who knows what kind of quarterback he's going to be he could become a great quarterback. But he has done what he is needed to do with the exception of the game last week against the bills -- a terrible game. -- Tim Tebow has done what it takes two to win some games and a lot of that has to do with with running the ball he's he's got a great passer. I've but he has plenty time to improve but there -- people who had been so down on Tim Tebow forever isn't. I -- they well look look for reasons to attack him and his. His -- openness about his or his his Christian faith has been one point of contention with a lot of people which I think is says is totally unfair. Well I'll say that they clothing. I I hope that he continues. Continue to be up quite and I hope he continues to be an example to all people. Not just men. But old people and who actually. It could become people we could beat. JRJ -- -- not that no matter watchman at Bellwether. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Yeah caller from Atlanta that if -- you talk to him. No madam moderator in New Orleans don't -- guy Williams is your -- -- Atlanta sign on you might be you might be a talk instead got. -- up traveling man -- tell them I'm actually don't work related bit at the now. Actually be out homered South Carolina game. All right William thanks probably show have a good evening ended very happy new year. If you enjoy this with your comment tonight -- number is 2601870. And -- -- free numbers 8668890878. And -- -- Emery is a 7870. More of your text coming up next time scoot -- for Tommy Tucker tonight. Under the W. A man who had been beaten called police for help and ended up getting arrested himself that after he was admitted to the hospital for his injuries. He admitted that the the fight came as a result of a drug deals are -- is -- -- intentional parish to -- year old mark surpassed junior no relation to our police chief I'm sure. -- -- -- He of flagged down a deputy intentional -- he was bleeding on the right side of his face the deputy called EMS and while they were waiting for aid to come. This 22 year old admitted. That he was trying to sell drugs to a man when the buyer hitting him in the head. And fled with 500 dollars along with his. Xanax and other pills. He went to the hospital was treated released and after that he was arrested for its distribution of narcotics. You know if you're if you're gonna -- down police. It and and you've been trying to sell drugs and you've got hurt in a drug deal gone bad. Don't tell the police what happens a discussion is cutting care what he deserves I think. Also while the -- -- tonight dominate the Celtics 97 to a 78 that was the home opener in. The highest hornets are are looking good of course two games and even a shortened NBA series has an awful lot of games in a long way to go but. -- champion just it's it it's as we don't have a lot of they're letting New Orleans fans that have that mentality you know it is sings winter pre seizing they're we're going to Super Bowl. No we're not going to Super Bowl we don't even -- is liberal yet I have a good feeling we're going to but the saints have a lot of work left to do and I'm glad to saints. Focus on the job it is to be -- the next job is they need to play Carolina in the Mercedes-Benz superdome. On New Year's Day. And I expect them on to win that game is Sean Payton said he has no plans right now to rest Brees or his starters. Is it to -- ESPN nine dot com poll out I mentioned it briefly last night but mark -- to our studio producer has an update on this. And it's about who's the best quarterback in the NFL. Well that question is worded what which quarterback's performance as most impressive this season. And you know as as you know -- can be everything in in some of these things but. There's three choices Tom Brady 9% of the vote of all the entire world. Aaron Rodgers 45%. Drew Brees 46%. And by my count. Of the fifty states now it's kind of hard to count some of the smaller ones up in the thirteen colonies there but by my count looks like Drew Brees is winning 37. Of the fifty states and in the international vote all over the world he's in a dead tie. With Aaron -- 45% -- it's almost like an election year we're looking -- they air the drew -- to -- Aaron Rodgers and insist that actually the red states in the Green states is how they had almost an -- around. At what point do we call had expected. Yeah is this very impressive over Drew Brees is doing so well in a national poll which butchery and worldwide poll.
