Scoot talks to WWL listeners about the scariest movies of recent times.
A tweet about a United Airlines gate agent refusing to allow 3 girls, one 10, to board a flight wearing leggings exploded on social media and is now a mainstream media controversy. 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?
The extremes represented by The Freedom Caucus in Washington, D.C. and Take ‘Em Down NOLA may be destroying their own positions.

Good evening at a very happy Halloween it is a shame that it is raining and I hope if there were any little trick or -- out there I -- they got their trick or treating in. As done as popular as it once was when I was kid in France where and when you were a kid that's really a shame. -- -- I -- -- show we we talked about how though the whole fear with the poison in. Candy and sharp objects in razor blades in apples and treats and that's it was all a hoax that really didn't happen. Effective Bradesco bloggers on our website on the -- page it every if you don't dot com that really kind of sets the record straight on that. But it is a shame that there have been so many myths that have caused people to not wanna go out. And like they once did. Another myth that we talked about last night. Was this myth that sexual predators. Use Halloween as the perfect time to a sexually abuse children. And that's not true there's -- research that indicates that there are. More sexual assault on Halloween. Than any other time of the year so that's yet another -- So if you're going out tonight that you might already be out I'm glad to this tonight of the -- show it's our Halloween edition. A life here on their -- -- well. A French Quarter is going to be packed arena no rain I'd I'd I'd just got to the station before it started to rain and looking out of our studio windows -- concede it is raining and it might be raining where you -- If you were to the east of New Orleans it's not to to -- yet but it's it's on the way. There are the sort of things are going inside -- I I don't think this is going to stop anybody from from going out. In addition to the French Quarter Frenchman street the mayor -- the lower part of Decatur all of these are very very popular spots. And I'm I'm. I'm not going to be able to experience its electric off at midnight but then I'm gonna head out to Ellison ransom or studio producer she's got -- arms in the air right now she's ready to go out. And midnight and this is one of the cities where you can actually start. And midnight. You know you'd eat you don't have to I've gone early in the in this in this city -- -- there are times when you can just car delivered twelve and that's when it's distorted information for those of you who I've love to go to eighties night. And when I Jackson a quarter. They have moved their eighties night which is usually again Thursday night. To this Saturday nights which I think is going to be fun and -- have a special and I don't know who the bandits but there's some special band for the Halloween festivities tonight to there. Also tonight of the show let's talk about scary movies and we always talk about scary movies this time of year I don't wanna talk about the classic scary movies the exorcist. The birds the shining Halloween Friday the thirteenth. We note that all those are scary movies. But the other night I watched the conjuring. The the first time it is really creepy. There are some there are some scenes in in I'm one of tell you got a -- case you haven't seen it but there are some scenes in that movie that make it. Make you jump back a little bit and they kind of stay with you and one of the things that I thought it was creepy about the conjuring. Was that. Some of the things that happened were in such a normal house setting. That issue walk around your house. Late at night you might actually have memories of some of the things that happened in the country I thought it was good so it's just talking about scary movies. Let's talk about some of the recent movies that have been made that are really scary. And really creepy. Also speaking of scary and creepy that that's the way a lot of people are describing the pelicans new mascot -- pelican have you have you seen him. I have to admit. He's a little creepy. Not deal may -- we're gonna maybe we're gonna embrace him and maybe everything's going to be fine a practicing right now you know. It was Cilic which elect the pelicans and mascot to come on visit your elementary school. I know that's fine that no I think we're all by the all booked up noticed keep him -- you know maybe will embrace about title I noticed the lights. And to me it looks like. Here pelican could be a close relative of penny wise. The decline -- in yet. By Steve thinking it's like I don't mean to be critical as is my first impression and it just a budget you meet somebody and and they they kind of -- poignant what may be that won't happen but I thought he was just. A little tiny bit scary. -- glad you're with us on this Halloween night if you or out or driving around -- -- -- drive carefully go have a blast went. It don't be afraid to take a campaign and you know tonight honestly he might have to to wait for -- because a lot of people are going to be camping it tonight. It's time for tonight's top candidates in on this Halloween night. The top later dates will be the most haunted places the eight most wanted places in New Orleans -- expand upon -- throughout our show. Number eight. The -- Orleans hotel in the French Quarter. This hotel was once a confident and an orphanage. Yellow fever -- you were once in many children died. There are stories of the frequent appearance. A little girl. Rolling her ball and chasing. Down the halls of the sixth floor. And like footsteps. Can be hurt whenever I think of something like this in a hotel I think about that scene in the shining this twins down a halt to the state that freaks via. Number seven on tonight's list of the top eight most Tony places in New Orleans. Our -- restaurant. Not just the bill can be scary there. Just before the founder hard -- died he told his staff that his daughter Jermaine. Was gonna take over the restaurant. When she died apparently she didn't want to leave. And to this state the spirit of his daughter Jermaine wells. Is known to appear in the restaurant. And arts. Number six on tonight's list at the top most 800 places in New Orleans. And partly our hotel on -- street downtown. A paranormal research team actually discovered for ghosts. Including the ghost of a nineteenth century teenager. And aristocratic couple from the 1920s and a well dressed man for 1920s. And all of these -- are known to taunt the cleaning staff. Now do you think that that's something that they would warn you about if you if you apply for jobs. And at that were probably a hotel in and year ended that the cleaning. Staff group will with a warn you that Jim might be -- if if somebody's target on the sheet or somebody's trying to prevent you from putting the towels. In that of the wash her that it it it might just be ghost in at that point would you say you know I think I'm gonna find work somewhere else.

One recent hotel guest reported seeing a man in his room during Monique Wright was he was is -- Mata -- a man in his room. The man was wearing only a feathered masks and was totally naked. I'm wondering if that's illegal if you're ghost. Or can you get away with it if you're if you could you can you get away which is being naked like -- now I realize that there are a lot of people who go to hotels and they would dream for something like this to happen -- -- Yeah and -- I mean if this if this person spends the night did you know you do you think that they would have to baby help pay for the room but the hotel modeling on that's not the only sure there are few other stories from. The hotel Motley on and and actually. Are proud that they are known as a very -- -- Number three on tonight's list of the top eight most haunted places in New Orleans. The legendary feats far. On Bourbon Street. Politics is one of the oldest bars in America over the years it was really no more as a gay bar. -- -- obvious they're growing up and they're a young adult it was more the -- -- it's like I don't know maybe this was really after Katrina. In recent years defeats has become a really popular hangout for younger straight or it doesn't mean that there are -- there -- It's it's really -- dominated by a younger street New Orleans crowd. It that you might see hanging out at a bar and on saint Charles or or magazine Streeter maple streets of somewhere in the uptown area. As a -- has really cheap given the day trip that purple drink to that things kill somebody was telling me that. The -- who does bar rescuers some some reality Barr show. On had three of those. Any absolutely. Passed out so you know you're not gonna wanna do that. But it illustrates -- -- street there are countless stories. About ghosts enjoying themselves at the bar. And upstairs. At certain times a ghost appears on the balcony. And waves to people and then disappears. Among the famous -- that continue to appear on recurring basis that would feet suburban. Aren't the voodoo queen of New Orleans. -- look though. Arthur Truman Capote. Charlotte feed himself. QEP long. And Louie Armstrong.

And she can actually be heard some have reported today hearing this from rampart street outside of the the secretary -- itself. And the way the crips are -- it's just it's a fairy. It's beautiful but it's a very eerie place and I think that's the secretary they used are one very similar to that. When they did the Ellis. It's it's it's definitely a fun thing to see it. We will talk a little bit about how those those -- tunes above the ground or. In reduced your New Orleans but that's no -- -- -- site that you really should see it it's it's very close to French Quarter close to downtown. If you live in this general area.

The number one most haunted place. -- -- It's the -- Laurie house. On royal street in the French Quarter and in fact an actor Nicolas Cage -- this at one point. I don't know if he actually lived there he he lost it in foreclosure but at one point Nicolas Cage owned the -- Laurie house. This is one of the most fascinating stories in New Orleans this was the home of doctor Louis -- and his wife don't seem. In 1834 fire broke out in the house. And as they were going through the house firemen were. Astounded. When Nate they broke open a door this is a locked doors broke open a door.
