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.

Time magazine has announced their person of the year and it is Pope Francis any disagreement here. And the person of the year is the person who had the greatest impact. On the world not necessarily positive or negative so this is not a statement about. And any positive impacted both France's is having on the world. I think he is a tremendously. Positive figure. But not everybody agrees with an average reading an article on the op Ed page. The foxnews.com. -- web site. And Ayers an op Ed piece there that says. That -- Francis is to Catholics what President Obama is too. Americans so obviously that's and a negative view of -- Francis and you know there are a lot of very hard core a strict Catholics who were not happy with some of the things that Paul Francis has said. I as a Catholic. Welcome this and fresh. New attitude and have been hoping for this forum for a long time. But the time magazine person of the year contrary to what a lot of people believe is not necessarily somebody who had a positive impact on the news but somebody who had the biggest. Impact on the news of the world a new year that is descending and it was Pope a Pope Francis and you know when you consider that Miley Cyrus. Was it was one of the the possibilities I think -- Francis is have a pretty good selection. And they were a number of other people but it's it is -- Francis I believe that Hitler and Osama bin Laden. Or Saddam Hussein I'm not sure which -- 700 or so and -- of those guys it was actually person of the year. That that led to a lot of record as it was Osama and led to a lot of criticism because people thought well wait a minute. This is like an honor no it's time magazine recognizing the person had the biggest impact on the news in. You can imagine that one year that was Osama bin Laden and -- not the year that was was Hitler. Republican senator Lamar Alexander. Has so fired his chief of staff taking him off the payroll and even though he says he's innocent. Until proven guilty. He was arrested the chief of staff of Lamar Alexander was arrested on charges of probable cause for possession and distribution. A child pornography. Ryan lost in 35 years old before it went on the air it was the last word I heard was in custody until a court hearing it's expected to take place tomorrow. Senator Alexander immediately remove the chief of staff from its payroll. Said he was innocent until proven guilty but I guess he really. Had no choice. There is absolutely no. Justifiable explanation. For possessing child pornography. And he was. He was arrested on charges of -- probable cause for possession and distribution. Meeting this it'd sick as it is to possess it. You wanna share with others she went to distribute it. If you listen to the show on a regular basis you know that I'm far from approved. But this is one thing that I just cannot. Wrap my brain around. I can't. Understand. Any. And I I try to understand things that I don't understand. But I don't think there's any rational. Justification. For child pornography. And if you have child pornography. If you don't have child pornography but when you hear about child pornography if there's a twinge inside if you anywhere. That makes you think that this is something that you would like. You need to seek help. Because that's not right there's something wrong with you. In the same way that you go to a doctor for a disease. If you are. Tempted if you haven't even done yet haven't even acted on this this this temptation. -- -- -- -- Is the reflection of a sick individual. -- justification for. There might be regional sport. And I know that when it comes to a lot of these things it's stuff like them. In matured the not to bonding with your peers I'm sure there's a lot of commonalities between a child pornography and pedophilia. But there's no justification -- one of the things largest I I don't understand. And I would hope. That if you do find yourself -- in any way whatsoever that she would get help before you get in trouble. And before you endanger the lives of of children that may end up somehow being the manifestation of the year. Obsession with with trial for knocked -- pornography -- just something. I find to be totally out. A reprehensible. If you wanna join our show would comment about anything we talk about our number is 2601870. Toll free 8668890. -- seventy. And our tax receipts 77 here's a Texan -- could I have a close friend Austin. Who is connected at the hip with Texas. He spoke directly to a real terror. It's said that Sabin has bought a house this year. He told me that this is for real and that Mack Brown has already informed his position coaches that he will be stepping down Friday. I have heard that. On Mack Brown who was sued the coach at tooling did a great job at -- went to North Carolina and that was hired by the University of Texas. And for many years did a great job with Texas. But as I said earlier you know it's. It's it's easier and more fun to build a championship team not that it's easy but it's easier to build a championship team that it is to maintain a championship team. Year after year. And you can look at a -- around. Or you can -- it. -- a number of other coaches. In it college football and even the NFL that it had a difficult time. Maintaining a champion year after year so I would think it's Saban would take advantage of this. It does appear as if Mack Brown there's a lot of talk about him. -- nobody's making this official yet nobody said they -- decision is official. But it -- brownies gonna be resigning the University of Texas by the end of the week. And I think the UT fans who would that would applauded Soviets it's time or Mack Brown two to move on he's no longer. And effective coach and he could go on to be effective. Doing something else but obviously this is -- position that has sent out grown him -- he hasn't kept up with it. I'm so I would expect that he he is going to. To retire by the into the week that seems to be done the work however. I don't think there would be any truth to Nick Saban already buying a home. In Austin. And I that is a real easy rumor to spread and it's one of those things especially with social media and I'm not discrediting dispersants -- friend. And he may have gotten it from what he believes to be very reliable source but I just don't think it's credible to believe the -- even has already purchased a home. I'm in Austin a for the purpose of becoming -- head coach of the Texas Longhorns so it will want to wait and like -- could be totally wrong. Here's our WWL pretty -- opinion poll tonight is something we've also been talking about the breaking news early deceiving. The former NO PD officer. David -- charged with killing an unarmed man Henry Glover after Katrina found not guilty by a jury in federal court today.

We be talking about how the holidays can be difficult time for -- for some people. And I have been through India as a sentimental person died in the holidays have always been a difficult time for me. And anybody who knows me anybody who has gotten close to me over the years. Nose to kind of anticipate my -- this time of year. And and and even when it's been a good year for me in a lot of ways I still struggled with. The the sentimentality in the emotion of this the sounds and the smells and it the -- the sites of Christmas. And I don't know if I can explain -- night I had a good childhood I've you know I've admitted that I suffered with obsessive compulsive disorders a kid very severely. And nothing was known about it when I was a kid so like I thought I was the only person in the entire world and had a brain that work this way -- in my opinion my brain was working very well when he came to. To some things and he's very Smart but. I've suffered with this a terrible disorder and I hope if you have any. It's in your family there's so much it's known about it now don't don't immediately dismiss it and if you think that there's any reason to believe it. That your kids or do you as an adult. I might be suffering with this city. Get the help that you need because it is it is a silent torture sort a lot of ways -- I Charlton which was tortured -- in terms of any kind of physical abuse or anything like that. -- so I have fond memories of my parents in Santa Claus and Christmas trees and family gatherings. So this time of -- always been a sentimental time for me. And there were times that that I've gone through life and in many -- -- gone through many holiday seasons where. You're not always with the people that you love most. You're not always with those you wanna be with all the time and during the holidays. And so sometimes that makes you kind of sentimental and can even make you sad and you and you struggle with dealing with the emotional perspective. -- of this holiday season I wrote a blog about dissidents disorder website titled the holiday season is difficult for some people.

On WWL. Here's a text abouts are going to a difficult time. A during the holidays the scoot it will be another quiet no gift exchanging Christmas. Just me and elderly father. I was in a paralyzing accident and I just lost my mother. With alzheimer's disease. He was very hard but I'm thankful I'm alive. That which doesn't kill us only makes us stronger -- Again I'd I'd known that's. That's a tough time. I remember the first Christmas after my dad passed to. My mom passed away -- in two years later my dad passed away and you know those were times that you know this this Christmas songs and they -- the idea of of Christmas and and finished celebrating that and sharing them with with parents. That really -- in my heart and that was that was a tough time. So I don't -- I've gone through. Christmases without exchanging gifts and and and last year -- was an even dating anybody last year and and was alone. And and I believe I work Christmas -- because I remember getting off the year. I guess it was at midnight Christmas the over rated I remember Christmas Eve walking downtown of the French Quarter. And it was it was a foggy night. It was so picturesque I love the pictures that I took that night up on the river walk parts of the cathedrals. And the checks every word somewhat shrouded in -- And the the street lamps the quarter street lamps at the French Quarter. Load in the in in the fall on it was a foggy night and a Christmas Eve night in the French Quarter way is a very very quiet time there weren't many people out and it's usually very tightly. -- time. It was almost eerie but there was just something that was. Very enjoyable dollar and even though I was alone it's a site I've I've attended here -- inclusive person by nature. And am very much of an introvert contrary to what I do on the -- this is my job and this is what I'd do would love to do but. I can be very inclusive and an introverted. You know even though I was alone I I just I I felt I felt very much at peace and indeed it felt it felt really good so even if you're alone or if you're. -- leave this this holiday season -- and I hope you find. I hope you find some peace and solitude in. In that in and realize that you're not alone because they are kindred souls all over the city all over this country. Dead or. Really sharing this moment with few until they're not right there with -- There are kindred spirits and sharing it with you here's a text could irate with you. There are so many different things that can trigger these feelings that you can't explain. You said it writes it brings up tough times and yes it tugs at your heart you always seem to explain things that are very treated meaningful way. And wanna thank you for that and that is from Scotty Scott thank you very much that I've got some really really. Nice to you know I have more fun on the show. Reading the text. That are are critical of -- receive really ugly -- -- -- -- -- the -- secretly ugly things but. I prefer sharing those text with you sometimes I just read -- -- and don't know. Exactly what they're gonna say but I have received some very touching. A text tonight about some of the things that we've been talking about it in just please note that I've -- appreciate all of -- There's a new study that shows that less police officers buckle up then in the general population. Approximately eighty per 686%. Of Americans now say they buckle up. But only about half of law enforcement officers report that they Wear there seatbelts. The -- cause of death the police officers on duty is traffic related fatalities. Should police officers. Follow the laws of society. And do the obvious answer that question is yes of course. I -- the other question is. Quite a police overtures not always. Follow the laws that they are sworn to to uphold. And -- I don't think it helps the image of police officers if they're if they're speeding north they don't fully stop at a stop sign -- state. The take liberties with with traffic violations were that there in the police car not. And I don't understand why police. Don't buckle up maybe enemy if you if Europe a police officer or a former police officer if there's -- logistical reasons why you shouldn't buckle up points easier for you not to be buckled up by I don't want to hear data explanation. And NA and united this show is very -- I'm very very supportive I'm not critical police. Mean there are times that yet to be critical of of different people and in different groups even -- you respect the entire group. But it it it bothers me when I and I see police officers but speeding obviously speeding. And their lights -- on. And I assume that they're not and swing called or not responding to a call that they're simply. -- -- And the idea of citizens don't like the idea that that police officers. Feel they're above the law. And obviously there are some not all but obviously there are some who do. And it's reported in you know. -- Jefferson Parish sheriff know Norman. And NO PD superintendent. Brawl surpassed they would tell you that their officers or told to follow the law. They don't always they don't always do that but it's an as a citizen it bothers me when I see those police officers. On flaunting the law. Because it makes you think that it's more about ego and it is really about serving the public. I know again I'm very supportive of police officers and have total respect for what they do every day in their lives and appreciate. What they do everything in there was I got a text earlier from somebody who said he's a police officer. -- said that actually. Because people freeze. He's an I'll get behind a car with my lights on and they'll part that we come to a stop. Actually I've seen that happen. I I seen a police car or are an emergency vehicle of some kind with their sirens blaring their lights on. And the person front of them just freezes. If you are not capable. Off responding to an emergency vehicle when you're on the road then you shouldn't be driving. You should not be behind the wheel of a car. It's real simple get out of the way. And I see these motors to actually freeze. When there's of an emergency vehicle behind him. So I understand what this officer saying but you know I would I would still think that the the best thing to do. Is to put your lights on if you're responding to a call here's a text -- screw this will be the first Christmas without my daughter. But I determined that it will be my only Christmas without her. She is four. And lives in Pennsylvania with her dead. And I couldn't bear to break her heart. To just visit. But this will be the first and the last Christmas apart. -- I understand it. When I I left New Orleans I spent christmases away from my son he was with me on Thanksgiving but. I spent Christmas -- away from him and I know exactly what that feels like and it's. It's it's it's difficult. But do what you can -- just make sure it's a good Christmas for them. Because that's all that they really care they just wanted to be good credit and and they wanted to know that you're happy make sure that they know that you're okay. You know even though she's done an excuse even though she's four years old. The kids it as very very early age consents something wrong with parents in fact. You know at that -- you know they really don't have that much on their minds having. -- -- four years older repeating about the impact of Obama care or they're not thinking about. And attention in the Middle East not -- -- -- true economic reunion of their of their minds are simple and and and kids like animals are really news goal -- and instincts. So just be confident and let her know that you're happy -- I would think that would be the divesting that you can do but I understand what it's it's like to to be without her but but appreciate the fact that she's in your life. And then I guess you can always think about the people that -- don't have as much. That -- as you have. And -- and it's it's it's human nature to compare ourselves. To what we used to have if we don't have everything we wanna have. Or to what somebody else happens if they have more than us but if we look around us there is still a lot that we can be thankful for. Here's a Texan recess -- thank you for helping me. To think and look at things in a way that teaches me new things. While there's a scary thought I didn't expect anybody to learn anything from the show. While it puts a lot of pressure on me here's a text every morning 8200 miles an hour on this bill way. 6 o'clock to 6:30 in the morning. Jefferson Parish police car. If -- -- you. I would take on the number of fat card. And I would report that person. And hopefully. That police officer if not responding to a call. Will be stopped. Because I would think the police officers even if they're in their car. Should be following. The rules of the road. This is the schoolchildren will be right back with more Mike from New Orleans on this Wednesday nights -- VW well. All right how about those east Jefferson moyers. And going to the state final high school championship game in the Mercedes-Benz superdome for the first time in the school's history. I'm -- AJ grand.
