Scoot talks to WWL listeners about encounters with otherworldly beings.
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.

And trying to -- -- make a -- -- ransom our studio producer -- make -- artist and I can put this make up only between these. -- these segments of the show doing a commercial break. -- hell I would like to have to do this all the time. -- when you look land I just wanted to go a little something before -- When added that night. Yeah we were talking about scary movies and and every year this time leader we didn't win it last year Russia we we talk about scary movies but the other night I saw the movie via the conjuring. And it made me realize that there were some more recent movies that are really scary. And so instead of talking about the old classics the birds in the -- -- in the shining in Halloween and Friday the thirteenth and nightmare on elm street and all of those movies that we've talked about nothing wrong with those classic movies. But there are some more recent movies. That have come out that are very very scary but I say scary are really mean creepy. And theory. Here are a few of the movies that -- people -- -- -- the conjuring tennis has come up and if you haven't seen -- that's worth it. I thought it was superiors about possession and it there's there's just something believable about it and there are a few things that happened it overly making Disco. And when you walk around your house you kinda have a feeling that I don't know maybe this reminds me so. Again there were very very eerie scenes in the movie. Somebody mentioned the right. Alrighty the right with Anthony Hopkins. A somebody else mentioned the movie vacancy. With Luke Wilson. Alison art studio producer and a number of people have a -- in -- about the movie insidious. I'm gonna have to see that. Somebody mentioned -- stoker's Dracula the newer version. Another movie that was mentioned the fourth kind. Skeleton key which was done here in this this area. A paranormal activity I. I haven't seen any of them and some people love them and some people think it's it's really really Hokies so I guess it depends on whether or not you get into it in the right way and if you do. Paranormal activity is scary to a lot of people. The John Cusack movie 1408. A movie called sinister. The exorcism of Emily Rose. Japanese movie a tale of two sisters. The dissent. The 2009 version of the haunting in Connecticut. On the strangers. With Liv Tyler. And the new -- couple people have have mentioned that also that if somebody called and had just gone to see the movie the counselor. With Brad Pitt and a host of other stars. And they said it was it was was excellent it was really scary it's it's. It's not a ghost type movie but there were some six of things and if that made it very very scary. You know when I saw this movie with Ethan -- recently I thought -- had a lot of political overtones and I'd like to for a number of different reasons but the movie the purge. Was a really good scary movie. And if you're on your way home -- -- looking for a movie to to render fine on Netflix or somewhere you might wanna think about some of these movies I -- the arduous with CRE. And an eight. That the purge to me which carries -- -- said in the future but everything looks the -- having cars and everything looked the way they look now but it's set in the not too distant future. I was in Hamburg we're through the political overtones. In the movie put. The purge is something that you know you felt like this could really happen and that's what made it really eerie. And creepy. Also the movie the ring. And the grudge. Couple of more recent movies that that are scaring. Here is. -- text that read so I encounter a spirited daily. Every time I hit the bars in the quarter. Spirits present themselves to me. You know I'm gonna what went when I go out. After the show at midnight. I'm gonna look for some of the spirits. I'm from Indiana Ruth you're WWL. I yet com.

I'm thinking Obama. -- Patrick wanted to tell you that that that there are more than you think that the unions are. Ruth I appreciate you sharing that story witness and thanks for listening tonight in Indiana. All right thanks for listening. Here's a Texan reach the scariest thing I've seen recently is Pierre the pelican. The -- consider -- -- pelicans -- their debut last night their home debut as the pelicans -- last year than it was pelicans this year. I'd love the logo. -- I wasn't a fan of the name of the beginning but I you know I understand a lot about pelicans now did know that they were just such. Vicious creatures and they can be really mean -- -- and vicious and I've loved the logo so I'm I'm I'm cool with the name. So -- pelicans make their debut last night and minerals arena they were up by fourteen points they've lost to the Indiana Pacers a very good team. 95 to ninety so it was a it was a an entertaining game for what appeared to via a sellout crowd there last night. I wasn't there but we got a lot of reports right after the game. End. Last night was when they introduced here the Pelican. -- new mascot. Now this has actually gotten some national publicity. Because a lot of people are kinda creeped out. By the pelican mascot. And I I heard this last night from some people and got some text about how -- It's carrying previewed at the -- -- you know how teams offered their mascots -- -- to come out to schools and pep rallies and things like that. And one gross and -- happened when. Individuals pelicans offered attitude to bring -- today at the elementary switch like mr. -- a year -- the the elementary school for your cover. I know that that's that's fine I think we're pretty well booked up right now. -- I don't know maybe we're gonna make it we're gonna just get over -- the way he looked. I'm not as freaked out as a lot of people war. But I do see some similarities. In the eyes. I see some similarities in the face of the pelican mascot with. The clown penny wise. In the movie it's -- Steven king he said. Since similarities it's gonna be interesting to see if they keep the pelican exactly the way it is. And we just stalled. Become enamored with it or if it may be deal -- think about it changing it. There's so I'm a Christian author and pastor. He's at that it molding brethren church involving Kansas. Name is Jack Wellman. And here's a quote from Jack -- if you ever see a ghost. You can be assured it is not the deceased person you're seeing or someone who died. There was unbeknownst to you. It is positively and evil spirit that is imitating. The dead person. If Christians believe in the resurrection of Jesus. And life after death and why would it be that difficult to accept the idea of a ghost story our spirit that they could manifest themselves. It in the mortal world. And why would that contradict Christian beliefs. You know I've heard credible go stories from people that I I trusted I felt like they were sharing an honest experiencing not exaggerating some fantasy to get my attention. I do believe that some individuals are more susceptible to experiencing the spears and others. I had only one encounter with the spirit in my life it was brief. In a very very comforting moment. I'm a deeply sentimental personal and just set the separate -- I am a amid deeply sentimental person. So through much of my life my career is taken me from New Orleans suit too many great cities -- in the country now back to New Orleans and I'm natural to be back home. -- there have been many times and I have lived in different cities and far apart from people -- laughed and people like missed. My son my parents and family members and significant others. I had a longstanding. Relationship. It was -- who has always ultimately -- two and moon had to move in actually. We worked it out furtive continue to live in this city that I was in depreciated wanna move right away. So I had this this tradition of -- not filling my apartment with pictures of those that I love and miss. And it was just my way of dealing with my own sentimentality and just you know pictures word reminding me too much if things that I missed out of course I would think about peace people every single day in and talked to him every day in of people -- I'm -- as they were constantly part of my life but. I just chose not to have a gallery of pictures that reminded me of those who I was and physically close to. One night I wish -- alone living in Denver. And my son and my longtime girlfriend. We're still living in Portland Oregon I was working at my desk at home and I realized it was my mother's birthday. April 25. And I started thinking about my mom and I remembered that I had this beautiful bridal picture of her in a small storage unit in the basement of the apartment building that would lift him. And I'm not sure why. But at that moment I decided to go down to the basement. And get that picture of mine my beautiful mother -- the beautiful picture. I brought the picture to my apartment that night and I placed it on the countered just behind me. And I continued. Working on the radio show. My father passed to weigh in Pomona long and two years after my mom passed away and I inherited by dance -- since nobody in the family could take to catch. So as I was working that night. The cat climbed up onto the counter and next to my mother's -- picture. And he began me now. In. A type of me now that I'd never heard before almost a deep. -- re kind of it was different. And it got my attention because first of all he just didn't meet our randomly. Ended for him to just jump up on the -- -- start meowing in this certain wade got my attention I I turned around. And I noticed that he was staring at a spot right. Behind me. Right over my mother's picture. And at that moment I sensed. The presence of my mother. It felt like. Comforting hug it was really a very comfortable feeling. I grew up calling my mom -- And where I was convinced that she was there visiting me and that might my caddie had really notice stated it was it was it not long after I brought this this picture up from. The storage unit in the basement. I called my mom Helen and I remember. When I realized that she was there. I thanked her for being a great mom. And talk to for a few minutes and I said I love you -- And then I sensed that she -- left. And I always believe that did both of my parents are with me after they passed away but that night I was actually convinced that that was my mother. On visiting me and I haven't had a visit since then and I I don't need another. But to I -- my parents every day. But I never felt the physical presence like that before and may not feel it again but I'd I and I know that -- -- -- -- get it was a very very comforting moment. On and I I definitely think that it's it's okay to believe in ghosts or spirits they're really essentially the same thing I think it's a matter of of semantics. Now my goal is not too. Convince you to believe in ghost or to challenge your christianity or whatever religion you -- by believing in ghost. I personally believe that for different reasons there are those who. I have passed on who feel the need to make their presence known to us in in in this world. And an outside of -- and -- nightmarish scenes that we see in movies all the time. Those who seemed to visit us in this mortal world. Don't seem to mean harm. And many times they're there to two comforts. And believing in in life after death really is that the foundation of believing in in ghost or. Spirits. If you prefer. If you have heads.
