Sometimes these things run along party lines though are ready jaguar opinion polls. Edwin Edwards considering another run for office if he were to win would it be a trick or retreat and basically that's asking you would you trust him. -- betray the public trust. Or would it be. I'd treat where he would wind up actually ending -- a good governor Mario good Saturdays so that's not been offered a public office arm and I think there are a lot of people out there like it when Edwards that's why are. There's no question there's no question about it -- I know people who would go to the polls tomorrow. And put him in office.

Bottom of the casket -- -- -- that I would be merit not in good today still talk about political correctness is that now -- part scariest part of Halloween schools and communities banning celebration. So nobody gets their feelings or is there any part of Halloween and offend viewers as the one holiday we can all celebrate together. Is this there are some stories that is the Michelle Bachmann says Halloween was socialist. And that it was a way for kids suck on statements candy and that's dialogue that was started at one of these satirical web sites like. The onions so it's not true -- -- -- -- if you couldn't be true because Halloween is not socialism it's extortion. So it's what it is -- in recent video mess up your house asked the world extortion. The American way and don't talk about the second annual ski areas Americans are movies you love them or hate him and what's your favorite at least scary movie and character.

That's why -- but tell says having an indicate he's outdated do and some triggered straightened. Try to start in his early she can but I think we'll talk about that I think. Dark is the official beginning of trick or treating -- some people bring your kids -- alluded earlier. It wants that cut off for trick or treat you know people ring the doorbell wait 39 o'clock to get everything shut down and you're settled in. When it comes at age. What's the cut off. I don't think there's anything to young songs -- parents or their kids -- were real young but when it comes as the old. When when you sit there and ended the doorbell rings. Aren't. Unions are doing these kids that they're 151617. Everything connect -- This really is close to extortion and and a little old for this say though here's a Snickers get off my porch.

A cat that he's on May be dressed up as a and it went trick or treating. In terms of -- a dishonest about Edwin Edwards. He says that he's not out of ruling out another run for political office. And obstacles stand in his way did to run for governor he'd have to get a presidential pardon which -- think is beyond. The question. Without that he'd have to wait fifteen years from his original sentence which means he'd be a 101 years old when he signed the qualifying papers and I try not to be. Prejudice when it comes stage but I think a 101 is a little old to elect somebody to public office you know we talk about cut so that is well. But anyway. Com. Would you vote for Edwin Edwards again. For public office do you think. A majority of the people here would. And a separate jaguar opinion poll is asking you do you think you'd be a trick. Well as in senses Halloween we phrased it this way he would betray the public trust in various state. Or do you think he would be an effective governor. I would love to hear from me at 260187.

Another one of people standing in front of the open casket. With that veil over the casket like they do we love you we miss you dad. -- -- Euro has today beloved father. So do you think this self he's there again on hand do you think it's appropriate to do this at a funeral. I'm very uncomfortable as this thing I never did get the pictures at a funeral when it's Halloween so I guess we can talk about is because. Nine and wanna remember somebody. After the world. EI it's not like you're hooked up a Margarita party or something you know -- and a big big bird shot and everybody with a funny have gone on the Hudson funeral -- -- -- remember people as they were having fun and and lying there on this. Labor Day that your call 26 so money 72038668890878. You know people would take -- -- Have you ever seen any of these that are inappropriate and the thing. These SE it's all about ego and it's it's all about a complete lack of humility and everybody thinks that others went to see pictures of them everywhere they go and everything they do this'll. Seoul -- -- concept just amazes me now. I think it's does everybody gets to be their own broadcaster and it's almost like they've put themselves on TV where. Look it's a picture of me holding the phone -- and the po boys in the post didn't. Maybe it does make him a celebrity because I saw those people at the theater we'll take you calls when we come back to 60187. 866889087. Edwin Edwards gets a pardon any -- a run for governor or he can run for senator without the part. Would you vote for him for public office as it stands now that quickly the numbers of swung around. And 14 of you are saying yes and I would like to know why or why not your calls when we come back on WW. Amber O'Leary planet spooky music force on Halloween and an Angel today experts say new loans one of the world's most haunted cities -- you believe that here. -- -- today show she'll tell you stories about those winds and paranoia goes -- She loves you and -- 3 o'clock today Archie Manning. And beyond with Angela we loved him for years thinks. Quarterback who wouldn't quit. We went to used in Minnesota but really listened saints color analyst Archie Manning right here on WW well father of Cooper. Is getting Payton and Eli has been a Libya and business and community leader. Now the world's getting in now our RT even better to an amazing film the book of Manning's an -- open book with BellSouth legend Archie Manning and mentally ill. Today one of four on WWL. Now is some people are asking about hash tags in south fees. And likely it was up first office healthy is where they just hold the phone out and take a picture of themselves hence the term. South he's now hash tag. That's the pound symbol that you put on your tweets are on your postings. Or on your. FaceBook. And what that is is -- it. It's a file or marker out how every once they have fled to let people know that that's what you're looking for for example. When amber O'Leary went to look at the funeral pictures she put hash tag funeral inning gave -- the funeral pictures. Twitter defines it as. Hey. Let's go. Hear people use and -- take symbol. Pound before traveler relevant keyword or phrase and -- tweet to characterizes tweets and help them show more easily in Twitter search -- if you tweet. With a -- stand on a public account. Anyone who does a search for that hash tag confined. You're tweet and says don't cash -- hash tag spam had stayed with at stake cash tanks. Because then I guess to put into many. Categories. Edwin Edwards also a topic of discussion here this morning he said he would not be opposed to a run for public office and I've not seen that Edwards reality show with his wife every. Being that I've heard is not good. But that I think about -- dynasty in Howell. An endorsement and I congressional race may have been the difference regatta is running an endorsement from one of the -- dynasty people. So I don't know do you think the reality series it would help or hurt him. And I are ready jaguar opinion poll would you vote for Edwin Edwards. Into green and as it stands now 21% of you. Saying yes. One did text that comes in that ties all of them together no hash tag old cash -- crook. Not -- one Edwards for president. Vote for Edwards and other tech says I would not but he fits in with the rest of the politicians right now hash tag crooks. At some tech savvy people here sell these attacks as are the equivalent of I was here no big deal. The T think they are a big deal though is is that because people are so self absorbed with themselves. They think everybody cares where they were and what they're doing and I think sometimes he gets so involved taken pictures. They don't even enjoy where they are I think it's more about the the that document in -- they are and actually enjoy any event. Teachers says I've. Can't tell you how mates phones have taken from kids trying to take self season class I've lost count it's a daily thing. That trick or treat story says it's true might be one others. Urban myths they go around my friend's father had two bowls of candy one label tree in the other tree. I asked -- -- it and understands answer was. It's a treat to see young kids dressed up and asking for candy the trick is for the teenagers or young adults where no cast cost him. Carry a Wal-Mart bag. And a long pause and -- and has faced only the philosophy of the two separate bulls candy the treat kids get the -- is candy that was made triples for the candy left over from. Previous years. Might be some from chicken soup from the soul might be a true story out of 6528. Before seven time to look at traffic. We got terror problems apparently game they are riding around his name. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Of southeast. Next hour -- and these are people -- these so totally self absorbed they think that. Somebody actually cares what they're doing every moment of the day. But he had a Texan says you know what my family and friends like. Like self please don't care about each other. On attacks about inward Edward Ed Edwin Edwards any person would vote for Edwards is. In election does not deserve the right to vote. Does a person realize -- laughing -- in this country the state would revert to after all of the recent gains state his -- attracting new businesses and interest. The only strength Edwards ever hand was getting deals done to bring business here so what benefit would he bring by being elected. The reality show about Edwin Edwards is a travesty it makes us as a state look dumb what a joke. Nolan says no for Griese Eddie and his child bride. And this text about SE how self absorbed the you have to be to general genuinely think that everyone wants to know what you're doing. Every minute of the day well are ready jaguar opinion poll not scientific but. The former governor -- and Bill Polian is only 22% are saying they would vote for Edwin Edwards. So we come back we'll talk about. What's going on with self these self he's at funerals. And ask you what would still be site -- taken out a self. Which again primarily features themselves in front of -- casket or otherwise at a funeral. And be a problem with you here there's somebody else that drives you nuts constantly taking pictures of themselves.
