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.
President Donald Trump and GOP leaders pulled their "Obamacare" repeal bill off the House floor Friday after it became clear the measure would fail badly. Does this reflect badly on the Republicans?

Here is a text Halloween was pretty scary I never like Michael Myers. Killing people I know we're -- you know. I think I Halloween was on the of the night. And I didn't see the whole thing but it was a different Halloween where was this the new version of Halloween it was of the woman Jamie Lee Curtis. And -- pleasant. I I guess this was the new Halloween but it looked like it was an old Halloween immediately looked like it was a a vintage movie didn't look like it was done. But today. But they they showed Michael Myers is a kid. And I thought that would -- the version of Halloween -- Soviet that I didn't get all the way through it I thought it -- sensational.

Have you experienced the presence. Of a -- or a spirit. If you wanna join our -- -- right on numbers 2601878. Toll free 86688970. And -- a -- 77. Indicate Jameson version of the Bible published in 1611. -- there's reference to the holy ghost the new king James version of the vital published in 1982. Translates holy ghost to holy spirit. Now as with many Christian beliefs there's a lot of disagreement over whether or not believing in ghost contradicts Christian and biblical teachings. If Christians believe in the resurrection of Jesus after his death and if there is life after death if that's the belief. But why would it be difficult to accept the idea that a ghost or spirit. Could manifest its presence to a mortal. And why would that be a contradiction of Christian beliefs. I've heard some credible those stories from people that I trust who are relating an honest experiencing that some exaggerated fantasy. I do believe that some individuals are more susceptible to experiencing spirits and others I think spirits sometimes. Might tend to reveal themselves to some people but not necessarily to everybody. I had only one encounter. In my life with a -- it was brief. But it was a very comforting moment in fact. Just thinking about it right now gives me chills. I am a very sentimental person. So I've got and -- I have to kind of set us up -- diverse and middle person so. You know I've I've gone through much of my life living away from people that I loved. My son. My parents family members and sometimes even significant others. Of my career is taken me from New Orleans all over the country and -- back to New Orleans so I haven't always been right there with with people that died I'd love. So I I really had a tendency to to not put pictures of -- points out. Because it and again this was just my way of dealing with it. Eight if they're reminded be too much of of what -- missed no of course I would think about the people that I lumpiness constantly throughout my day. But I just chose not to display of the real pictures. There would only remind me that I was not. Physically. Close to these these low points. One night while I was working at my desk I was alone in my apartment in Denver my girlfriend at the time had not yet moved. This is the person was ultimately engage to one point. I'm my son and my girlfriend. We're still living in Portland Oregon so I was alone in Denver I was working at my desk. And I realized that it was my mother's birthday is April 25. And I sort of thinking about my mom. And I remembered that I had this beautiful bridal picture. My mom that was in a small storage unit in the basement of the apartment building -- and in downtown Denver. And I'm not sure why. But at that moment I decided to put into the basement. And get the picture of mine my mom. I brought the picture to the apartment. I placed on the counter. Right behind me. And I turned around and continue to work on the radio show. When my father passed away which is not long after my mother passed away and I inherited by dance kept. Nobody else in the family can -- the cats alive like I took the -- party back to Denver from from Dallas. As I was working that night. The cat climbed up onto the counter right next to my mom's -- picture. And he began meowing in a way that I had never heard him meal before. It was kind of a deep. -- -- -- -- beat me now. When I turned around I noticed that he was staring. Over the picture which is right behind me staring at a specific spot while he was me now. He saw something. At that moment. I sensed it was my mother's presence. It was as if she was they are giving me a hug. Bringing that picture up from the basement. I think invited her to. To visit to -- a gay issue would wonder why don't I always evident that the picture up. Actually it's it's in storage in in Denver but that this was really get a great moment. I I just -- filter her presence there and it was a real sense of comfort. For me. A group calling my mother time. And when I was convinced that she had visited me at that moment. I looked up at that spot where the camp was focused. And I spent a moment. Thanking her talking to her and thanking her for being a a great mother to me. And I said I love you on. And with that I sensed that she had had left. And I always believed that both of my parents are always with -- after they passed away. But that night I was reassured that they are indeed always with me. And I talked to my parents every day but I really. Believe and I've never had any other kind of encounter but I really believe that that night my mother this economy. I guess technically you could say she was a ghost she was a spirit. 55. Never had anything like that happen except for that moment but it was a very very comforting moment. And when -- I read the comment that I I opened my blog with tonight from this this -- Jack Wellman Christian author and pastor via. That the -- playing a brethren church involving Kansas when he said if you see a ghost. You can be assured it is not the deceased person you are seeing or someone who died it was unbeknownst to you. It is positively and evil spirit. It is imitating the dead person. When I read that earlier today I I I couldn't help but think about that moment when I experienced. My mom's ghost my mom's spirit. And to suggest that a ghost that you see. Is not the deceased person but it's definitely evil spirit which was proof to me that. That some people are possessed. By such strict. Beliefs. That they would dismiss a wonderful moment in somebody's life like that wonderful moment that I felt my mom was there. Now it's not my goal too to tell you what to believe it and whether or not you should believe in -- or not and and Whittier crusher or whatever religion. But I personally believe that there are different reasons that those who have. Have passed on feel the need to sometimes make their presence known in this mortal world. And outside of that the nightmarish scenes that we have all seen in movies. And for the most part we only hear about it. Benevolent ghost we only hear about. Experiences that don't lead to anything horrific -- do you see that in a movie but you'd you don't you don't hear about that in the real world. And then quite often we do hear about the presence of a coaster spirits. Are from a loved one. And believing in life after death is the foundation. For believing in ghosts or spirits.

I hope you're having a good time I hope you are safe at home and if you have kids I hope they were able to get out and enjoy. Some aspect of trick or treaty it's really become a lost art. And it's a shame we were talking about this extensively on the show last night. About how the the poison the candy and the sharp objects in razor blades in apples and Halloween treats those things are -- Those things didn't really happen. And in fact -- set the record straight -- that it's that -- like from last night poisoned candy Halloween candy it's just admit. And that's on the -- -- had to be revealed a -- wanna read that and share that with. With others. But Halloween has become. You know it's supposedly a fun frightening time but it's become a frightening time to the point where. Kids can go have fun like they used to. And we were talking about this to briefly last night is like if you're a Christian fundamentalist and this doesn't apply to you than don't take it personally. But it is some Christian fundamentalist. -- years ago a soaring the evil meaning the Halloween. Halloween was just a -- innocent Holiday -- -- country. And and kids didn't know where it started or how we started they didn't really care. -- -- -- on your kids that it's hard as a pagan holiday although some people believe that it has Christian roots and and some believe it is pagan roots. It became a foreign night out. And eight it's our our human nature to want to be scared which is why we love to go to scary movies. We like to be scared. And I guess when we are scared and that we go back into our normal life we feel even more comfortable because we were scared and then now we're back in our. Our normal life unless you see a movie that's really good in the tenacious scared me -- normal life as well. But the also the the other rumor about. Sex predators. Using Halloween to. Abduct kids had sexually molest children. That's a myth. There's no research that shows there's an increase in sexual molestation. Or sexual abuse on Halloween night. No research that shows that. So it's interesting how the media and society. Have both worked together to make Halloween a lot scarier. Than it really should be it should just be a fun time.
