Welcome back to our show parades are rolling through the streets of New Orleans right now it is NAND stop parading -- until wanna -- today and actually all the way through Mardi Gras day. Remember when the crew of Comas used to be the last parade Mardi Gras night. I actually of remembrances of as a kid going into the French Quarter and bide my parents knew somebody had a balcony on now I guess is -- the royal -- program probably royal street. And we used to watch the parades that went to the quarter and you manager raised going to the French Quarter but the the used to a name they stop that because they realized. 10 -- doesn't seem like it's a safe situation but Theresa continue to roll and even know where. On on a high floor in the building we're in much up to the street a block away I can see and hear. The parades. Coming in to a coming to an end when the marching bands come to an end here. So it is an exciting time fun time. I hope it is a fun time for you -- that everybody behaves but inevitably get this many people together and they're going to be people who were not going to behave. So -- on the show among other things we've been talking about Mardi Gras parade pet peeves. What bothers you most about. When people do and don't wanna grow operate. And also just general -- gras parade etiquette and for those of you who have tuned into the show around the country we're not trying to rub it in this is money -- time -- world as it if you have never experienced this. I'm sure you can pick up on how much fun it really is and today it is in if you have never seen it and you have a chance to see it. Make plans to experience it however for those who have been here for many years. They. Don't wanna see it every year and they don't need to see it every year. It is an effort to be there -- people this is just this is so much part of their culture so much part of the year. -- -- teaching there in their families to go to rates -- so many people go to the same spot every year. And watch -- and I think that's a great tradition. And never really had a tradition as I've I've mentioned when we were kids there was a balcony that we would occasionally go to and I think it was on Boyle street. To what separates that we never have consistently had the same place to go open a lot of people that's part of their tradition. And I'm assuming the -- growers like fair labor union in some cases that they did families get together and and see each other. They don't see each other all the time but they certainly see each other alimony draw because they'll go to the same place or maybe you've got. A family member who has a place on a parade route so it really is it's it's a fun time of fear there's no doubt about it. But if you had been here. For a long time it's not something that you always want to participate in and that's okay. There -- a lot of people who take this this time to go skiing in effect I remember at one point I don't know if it still happens or not but it one point. -- Austin I'm not Austin on -- As the cholera are you still Mardi Gras parade on Mardi Gras day because so many people from New Orleans.

I don't like them by but come on radio and down economics web site obstacles we've been about the men more men and women. I mean. I would think about that the other day at the weird. Larry. Honestly I I believe you know there. And I think this is why more men spit and women. I mean it's a lot of men and if -- on a fast walker. So I pass a lot of people when I'm walking and there are times that I have almost been hit. By a -- the 'cause I'm just passing somebody when they're turning in spinning. About it dodge it inside -- -- -- -- -- now know that people should turn and look at make sure that nobody's passing human characters that it will not that anybody should -- but it's it's the -- it's this it's this masculine tendencies I don't know how are important to mark territory.

And -- I had a bit about my hand I think -- -- -- and that happened. I have had that happen I haven't seen it recently but in the past I have seen that a lot. And then -- second thing is I can't can't debate. That come in my hand and make it happen now. I mean they don't -- my hand and then make it popular. Did don't have that Mac attack not to do something real. But. But one to say about that the Catholic thing about Lehman that afterward now. When you think it would -- out -- me become the contract.

Don't make my racquet contract that you in her -- Any anything it's that impersonal than how does the church turn around and then did and then. I'd defend a ban on same sex marriage if it's if it's not personal it's not. If it's not emotional it's not physical as it's just is -- it's about commitment and duty then why would you be against two guys getting married are. -- -- and -- -- -- -- -- about it is they adapt -- that ridiculous I mean did you know we've got one in da -- back from Iraq.

But Dave -- I'd be doing it themselves but they're not part of the stereotypical group that is usually blamed for not raising their kids properly. Maryland girl I have a -- I'd -- I always I always do. Here's a text that reads what's wrong with asking an officer. What a person especially someone in your parties being arrested for. I understand 90%. Or maybe more of the time. Easily share it but there are some arrest them or not I've experienced it firsthand. I have been cuffed. For being a Smart -- Walked down the streets. And let go the officer told me and I quote you can't make an officer looked bad in front of people without. Consequence. It was during a parade. And yes I was sober when this happened I see some cuts taking advantage of the situation during Mardi Gras they mess with people. Because they can at times and that is clearly wrong. You shouldn't you know police officers have to be tough. This has been held of people I'm not suggesting that you do this. But it is -- -- players did you have freedom of speech and freedom of expression. When it comes to. Flipping off an officer. Or cursing in an officer. Now you can correct me if I'm wrong but I believe that that is not been upheld in court I don't think you should do it. -- Police officers I would think would have enough control over their emotions. To no wind to really get mad at somebody and not to get man over something a superficial because we do. Expect them to. To be in control of your emotions especially because they have guns and they have power for Tennessee Daniel Euro and a VW beating.
