Tonight on the SCOOT show with guest host, BOB MITCHELL: New Orleans just hosted the NBA All Star game, and had great success with Super Bowls. Could the Crescent City ever host a summer Olympics? PLUS: Scientists found a way to accurately predict lifespan in worms – a breakthrough that could one day be used to predict how long a human would live. If you had the chance would you want to know how long you are going to live? ALSO: A 10-year-old boy came up with a novel excuse after he drove his parents' car into a snowy ditch. He told police he was a dwarf who forgot his driving license. What was your first driving experience like? Did you ever sneak out with the family car? Did you get caught?
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?

You know appear Christian you know all the Tibetans say and joke about it with the stick when -- in the world leader. And I believe that scripture was referring to of the disciples when they were all on the all the gospel road preaching the gospel that if they weren't to taken. Pick ups and firewood and there was a snake and in the statement -- that -- I think that's what referred to not the fact that you should. You should test on -- -- the put my hand. In a box of rattlesnakes. Yeah exactly sometimes if you just. He goes. Sometimes see what you -- It firm all right -- what do you think about the world ends and I am I realized that.

And he drove off the road into a snow bank and when the cops game. He tried to sell them on the fact that it was a door for him and he -- leftist driver's license at all.

Yeah. -- at all. -- That that we should allow people. It was small ball stop like it up. Obama. You know you knew you bring up you bring about a very good point because. In the old testament people sacrificed animals and in in the old testament. What you were supposed to do if you were supposed to -- and almost have like a pet like take a of a baby lamb and and keep but the family. And and and raise this lamb for a year and then and then bring it to the priest to be sacrificed because. That way you felt an attachment to this this animal. And you're right that at that at that time to help people believed in an animal sacrifices. -- today and and taxis -- sultan. -- -- -- legitimate that it would be like.
