Scoot talks to WWL listeners about the scariest movies of recent times.

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.

Or on Frenchman -- on Decatur. -- and in a second stop people from going to many of the the bars and clubs in Metairie in on the west bank and really throughout the series they're having big Halloween parties. Halloween has evolved from a kids' holiday to very adult holiday. And when I think about the new establishment today is the baby boom generation of which I am sometimes hostile witness. We grew up having fun with Halloween and as we got older we actually helped turn Halloween into a very. I don't holiday. Here's our -- WL pretty jaguar and I don't mean. Bad -- holiday stuff so that would you say adult things you know everybody's thinks about what you know but I don't mean it that. Although there is some sexy Halloween stuff out there.

Every night when we begin our show 8 o'clock we sort out with the topic today too it's the topic things we'd like you know as we begin our show a tonight's at this Halloween night we started our show with. The top eight most haunted places. In the city of New Orleans. We're gonna run through that -- again. Number eight. The program Orleans hotel in the French Quarter. The hotel was once a conscience and orphanage. Yellow fever hit New Orleans and many children died. There are stories of the frequent appearance of a little girl rolling her ball and chasing it down the halls on the sixth floor. And light footsteps can be hurt whenever I think about kids in the hall of hotel I think about that scene in the shiny with those twins. Number seven. On a list of the top eight most haunted places in New Orleans. Our -- restaurant. Not only -- is the bill scary but I just before the founder of or -- died he told his staff that he was gonna leave his daughter Jermaine. In charge and she was gonna take over the restaurant. When Jermaine died she apparently didn't wanna leave. And to this state dispirited Jermaine wells is known to appear in the restaurant. Number six on our list of the top -- most haunted places in New Orleans. -- -- a hotel on pointers in the CVG. A paranormal research team discovered for ghosts. Including the ghost of a nineteenth century teenager. An aristocratic couple from the twenties and a well dressed man from the -- And all of these ghost had been known to tort. The cleaning staff. Not if you're applying for a job and it's we'll party all night and day you were applying for jobs in the Bay Area that is the cleaning staff area. If you -- part of a clean if you think it would warn you. As we just -- -- what you know that as a possibility that unity unity taunted by some ghost here and if you were warned about that you you'd think he would stay with the job. Number five on tonight's list of the most haunted places in New Orleans. The border guard -- house. Super natural sightings include visions of the battle of Shiloh taking place in the main hall. On this this this house. Men with mangled limbs and blown away faces can be seen along with horses and mules. That have been slaughtered. By cannon fire. Number four on our list of the top eight most haunted places in New Orleans. And possibly on hotel hotel mostly on -- or a street in the French Quarter. This hotel is actually very proud of the year -- image. A recent hotel guests reported -- seeing a man in his hotel room he was he was here during Mardi Gras. And he reported seeing a man it is his hotel room. The man was wearing only a feathered masks. And was completely make it. Now if that was a ghost of usually -- disciplined smaller -- kiss it sounds like it's just part of the Mardi Gras celebration. They and they are are their other stories about a hotel mostly on in the French Quarter -- to be one of the more ordered hotels in the quarter. Number three on tonight's list of the top eight most haunted places in New Orleans. The legendary. Feats far defeats blacksmith shop on Bergen street. -- feats is one of the all the spores in the country and over the years when I was growing up and young adult and going out of the quarter. My feet set in even when I was an adult here. I think really prior to Katrina -- -- was -- was primarily gay bar it's not the case Hartsfield. Aaron and invited there. But in more recent years -- -- has really become a popular hangout for a younger. Straight New Orleans crowd a crowd that you'd expect to see hanging out at a bar on magazine or. Oak street or maple street or saint Charles avenue that's what the -- in some ways that's what some of the crowd looks like -- as the younger. A straight crowd not that everybody is welcome their bit. That the crowded -- has definitely changed. But he's really one of the more haunted places in New Orleans. -- there are countless stories about ghost enjoying themselves at the bar. And upstairs at certain times a ghost appears on the balcony. And -- actually wait -- Before disappearing. Among the famous -- that it appeared with feats or the voodoo queen of New Orleans for regional -- Author Truman Capote you shall feed himself. Huey. They've all been reportedly. Seen now. It's always possible that people have seen these these ghost after having a couple of those of frozen purple streaks and it says it defeats that's something you -- try fear. If years in a vote for something sweet and something very refreshing. But what features have been known to be very very -- -- so when you walk by defeats on on Bourbon Street you might wind just occasionally. Look upstairs and see if you see something in the -- Number two on tonight's list the most haunted places in New Orleans. Saint Louis cemetery. Number one believed to be the most thought -- cemetery. In America. The -- includes. Revoked the voodoo queen. And it is said that her ghost can be seen sometimes going in between the tombs in the -- She's wearing a red and white turban. And she's quietly saying a traditional New Orleans curse. To those who were there. As some people even report hearing that that that person hearing her voice outside of the wall when they're on -- rampart street. Visitors often leave items on her curve -- including Marty gras beads money. Food and I seen a number of empty liquor bottles there and and there are there a couple of other -- in that area who have does the same the same thing. Also some people will will make a wage. And no mark three black -- on her -- and that he's in hopes that she will grant their wish. From beyond the -- Saint Louis cemetery number one. Is. Definitely -- -- she should see it if you -- in the New Orleans area. And you haven't been down here. Go do it truly is -- it's quite an experience and there are famous people out of former mayor Dutch morial is buried there so there are the people. Buried there as well. But it's a very very old cemetery and and has has all -- has all the ambiance of just something really really eerie I believe that's where they film the Ellis. Toward the end easy rider when they were doing -- Ellis steer mushrooms aside to remember but there were some kinda crazy scene there. And I believe they did that it to Saint Louis cemetery number one but it's it's very easy to get to from anywhere and in downtown New Orleans in the French Quarter. And it's definitely an interest and they -- member a couple of friends of mine and a visit from Denver. And it diverted to New Orleans before and it's took fantasies Louis cemetery number one and they were just absolutely mesmerized by. And finally tonight's. Number one. On tonight's. In places in New Orleans. The Laurie house on royal street in the quarter. This was the home of doctor Louis Lori and his wife tilting. In 1834 fire broke out in his house. And firemen trying to put out the fire also were glued to the house to see if if anybody needed to be saved. Firemen broke through this door and they were astounded. When they saw seven starved and beaten slaves. Change. And literally dying in the thick smoke from the fire. The firemen continue to go through the house and they also discovered more slaves but many were already dead. Some of the slaves they were alive and amputated arms and amputated legs or were disfigured. But here's the really creepy part. Firemen that night discovered organs and body parts. They were found preserved. In what appeared to be a laboratory. Use for conducting experiments. On human beings. This is the house that Nicholas K Jones at one point I don't know if he ever stayed there or not he lost it in in foreclosure but the Laurie house on royalty the French Quarter.
