The possibility of some showers -- -- -- front moving through here but it's gonna bring spectacular weather for this week it once again sunny and very mild temperatures cool night. Very much like last weekend. So make plans to get out and enjoy it. And first look like this -- it was gonna come through cause more problems for the church leaders that looks like it might work out fine for liberty to get out. And do their trick or treating also tomorrow afternoon should be another great afternoon for another concert at Lafayette square. It's harvest the music concert series -- benefiting the second harvest food bank and always a lot of great music and and fun people out there. And Lafayette square right downtown. A just a few minutes ago before going on the year I got a I got a text from my brother. And it wasn't a picture of the Dallas Cowboys. There is no local Dallas Cowboys and said Dallas Cowboys why are we America's team. Because we shut down when things get really tough it's time for tonight's top rated a -- the top eight things we'd like you know as we begin our show tonight. -- VW well number eight. 46 year old woman in Austin Michigan. Dressed up as an. Abusive wife for Halloween Paul -- I've -- up Paul crop Paul crop pub crawl you know what you start to say something wrong it just stays with you. Halloween pub crawl over the weekend that's when you know people go from one bar to another. Her 25 year old boyfriend was stressed as. And abused husband. The woman was arrested after getting drunk and actually beating and abusing her boyfriend. 26 year old -- Crespo according to police said it's ironic that she dressed up as an abuser. And she ended up abusing. Her boyfriend that night. Her blood alcohol level was point 19 more than twice the legal limit in Michigan I guess sometimes Halloween imitates life. Number seven at tonight's list of the top eight at eight. Obama care right now is -- maps and this is damaging the image. The Obama administration CBS news has learned that. Over two million Americans have been told that they cannot renew their current insurance policies more than tripled the number of people. Said that. Dissent they're said to be buying insurance. Under the new Affordable Care Act commonly known as obamacare. Hundreds of thousands of people are losing coverage. White house Press Secretary Jay Carney said what the president said. And what everybody said all along is that they're going to be changes. Brought about by the Affordable Care Act to create. Minimum standards of coverage you know I'd -- and there's still a lot we don't know this is hoping -- -- to further in future shows but right now. Obamacare has been an embarrassment for the Obama administration. And since this is something that didn't just all of a sudden pop pop. This is something that -- which planned. That is there should have been more realistic talk about what people could expect and it should have been ready to go. I still have a very difficult time believing that accompany. Would not have been prepared even for. The number of people who were trying to sign on four obamacare I can't believe that accompany. Would not have been prepared to handle. The load. And the government. Could not handle load and that's what scares a lot of people about the government handling health insurance in general. Number six on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. Why would anybody defense. Or restaurant. Philadelphia has created a new menu item. It's a deep fried. Twinkie burger. It's made with two deep fried twinkie bonds. Up pork belly and beef -- American cheese. And bake it. And it starts to appear on the menu today PYT is a restaurant in Philadelphia. You like he's -- -- also home of the lasagna burger OK so we've got lasagna in between two bonds they also serve. Can you think of anything that would be better for either in this. -- taco shells. Taco shells made out of bacon. You know there are so many bad things to eat out there and honestly I I I see these commercials. For for some of these these food chains. Not just the fast food chains but also agreed that the change where -- you sit down and yet we have dinner. Our lunch. And I just our breakfast I can't I can't believe that it. People would eat those things and I guess everything in moderation is okay. The problem is that people for equality it's on sale I guess it's okay as Beatrice eloquently did -- it must be right Leo let's use a little common sense of -- I guess I'm kind of trying to figure out what would be next after that deep fried twinkie burger. Too deep fried twinkie -- pork belly beat paddy American cheese and eight. How many cubic pie. Fried -- global yes we can work on that. Number five on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. During the Halloween season. Kentucky hospital to. Tourists. Who have two hours and also tourist who wanna spend the night in the old hospital. The Waverly hills sanatorium. Which home to thousands of sick patients from the 1920s until close in 1961. Many spooky encounters have been reported this year. The hospital is very old on its site close to two Louisville. And it features several ghost and Halloween themed television shows. And it's it will no nationwide the Waverly hills sanatorium. And -- this may -- think about something your new worlds and I've thought about quite often. How -- it do you think old charity hospital -- -- I -- my charity hospital and to some times I looked up at that and I just think. How haunted by the or when you drive by the question expressly look overture to think how haunted. -- deputy I am really surprised that that nobody has. Has is gone in there and done some kind of a horror movie or something about the charity hospital but it can you mention. Spending -- night. -- charity hospital. And this is something it will continue to talk about a predictor close to -- -- we will be on the Thursday night Halloween night we will be with you on that -- Will start the at the show with a top eight most haunted places. In the new World Series of the ridiculous you'll do it again this year. And we'll talk about a Halloween tomorrow night and and -- as well. But I was thinking of another place they would be rather creepy not to spend the night and -- it's healed and at Six Flags. Amusement park out in your -- to meet the that would be some like would that be what some creepy. Little places that used to be rides that might might be scary but charity hospital we thought about how -- -- hospital like the number four in tonight's list of the top eight at eight. Washington Redskins Dan Snyder has met with NFL commissioner Roger did. -- today in New York the NFL wants a better understanding of how the Redskins plan to handle the controversy with the team's name. -- the owner of the Redskins. And Snyder once again reiterated to the NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. He has no plans to change the Redskins name. It's been criticized as you know in the last couple of months by some groups there are fans and media. Bob Costas on some people on Capitol Hill native Americans find it very offensive. The meeting with Roger Goodell comes one day before the NFL officials are scheduled to meet in New York this would be tomorrow with representatives of the Unita Indian nation. That's the native American group defines the name offensive and what's changed. Last month NFL commissioner Goodell said. If one person is offended we have to listen. And ultimately it is the team owner and Snyder's decision. But it's something that I -- assault to go out and make sure we're listening to our fans listening to people who have a different view. And making sure that we continue to do what's right to make sure that every team represents the strong tradition. It has for so many years now I believe the Redskins have been named the Redskins for over. 81 years. And that's a long standing tradition. You know I I think at some point you just have to -- ago. And at some point you know because there's nothing illegal. You can't ban it I mean it's it would be unconstitutional. To save it. The team can't. Being named the Redskins. You can be offended by it you can not like it. You can. I try to. Started economic protest. But I don't know how -- that's gonna go yeah it is somebody was critical of the -- name if it was very offensive because of that the reference to catholicism. Eyes and no matter how. How strong the protest was against that. There's no way saints fans are gonna stop going to games. And when you think about the tradition the Redskins 81 years there's no -- Redskins fans are gonna stop going to Redskins games. And some people find the name offensive. You do what you can do to try to get something change -- I mean the next step would be there to pass legislation or something to that effect saying that it can't be seen that in and and that is absolutely ridiculous. So if you don't like the Redskins name figure out a way to. Showed you're disapproval of that. But beyond that if insiders talking to change the name the names are going to be changed.

It shouldn't go that far. Yeah that's what I'm trying -- because don't actual scenes. Are happening. Almost every night on television. What I am aren't I thought about I thought about sex when I was a kid watching green acres I thought because if of whatever her name -- senator Lisa Lisa Douglas what I what I'm trying to explain is that it doesn't take that much to make people think about sex it's always been here. Technical. About checkbook and it's simply a year why then aren't you would think that. The promotion. Of nobody who can some precautions that would not just project to. Or why quarterly quarterly why -- we need to have the media promote this why does this need to be promoted in media why can't parents died just from a very early age start teaching their kids to be responsible for their behavior.
