Tonight on the SCOOT show: happy Lundi Gras! How has your Mardi Gras experience been so far? Good- frustrating – wild? AND: has everyone in the parades and along the routes been behaving themselves? What has the crowd been like where you’ve watched so far? We’ll talk about Mardi Gras praises and pet peeves tonight! PLUS: the Christians protesting on Bourbon street do NOT represent all Christians…do you find those marching and protesting to be enlightening or offensive in their approach?
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?

Sacrificial. Season afflicted time when you give up something you sacrifice it's. It's -- reflective time on the Christian calendar list. A morning gras day is the culmination of carnival season carnival comes from the Latin words meaning farewell to the flash. And since this festive time is a time when people preparing to say. Farewell to the flash for well some will forty days then you see a lot of people showing -- -- and I realize it's gonna be a little cooler tomorrow. And I know when you first thought about money being in in early march youthful it is going to be nice -- it's going to be chilly but that is not going to. Cool any of the spirits. In the French Quarter or really throughout the New Orleans area winners -- -- celebrations that should be a lot of fun accord tomorrow. Tonight our top later date every night we starter issue with the top eight date tonight's top eight list is the topic things that we think you should go about -- draw. And that's a trending right now on our web site as I've worked on this today for the show. There were a few things that I discovered about Mardi -- and even as somebody who grew up here. There was some things that I didn't know about -- -- tradition that I found rather interesting. In all of that says it is in the topic things we like you know by -- draw on our web site right now -- -- VW don't count taking the place of the scoot blog. Tonight on her website and also a light in the topic things we'd like you know about body broad I want you to know that all of the Christians on Bourbon Street. Are normally Christians. Some more but I had an encounter with a group yesterday. And beautiful Sunday afternoon and this group poised to -- very insightful they had. They have the most elaborate colorful signs and they were made news buried some kind of very durable. Material. They were on on solid on sticks. Men with gloves they were there were places for them to hold the bottom of the of the signs so. This was this was is big production issues see. When it comes to the the Christians that go to -- mystery. So they're trying to spread the word of Christ and if you if you were witnessed earlier this year with you what happened I was taking a picture because I was gonna send it out on on my Twitter account and I take picture especially at a time like this -- A shootout to USC. And one of the signs said something like homo sex is is this in. And -- got the implications it. It to him that means that the sex is not a stand. And you know about going to hell and -- burns and Allen all the I I understand that that message did some people have but this. This one guy to take a picture and the one the guy with a megaphone again with a bullhorn. -- Christian group in urban he looked at me. And -- talking about -- addressing me to the crowd. -- saying are you a man or -- woman. Do you have a mirror look at yourself are you a man or or you said the guy is questioning based on my physical appearance whether I'm a man or woman. Now you have no idea locally you can go to our web site. The pictures there and -- blog posts on this stupid. I don't see how anybody could mistake me for a moment and if they did -- must be some really ugly women in this in this world. I'd just OC -- -- April but not only that. The -- I proceeded to use profanity. On Bourbon Street in -- there are some. Kids walking around with their parents. Using profanity and describing the behavior among gays and lesbians. He's doing this in public with children present. A young woman from England confronted the Christian group. And then she she came over reached -- this would never happen in England this is the us. And there is a news story about one of the people with this Christian group on Bourbon Street and I'm sure they're going to be out there tomorrow. Was caught in the act of self gratification. In public. I don't know -- but I don't think it was that long ago. So I I warn you this is not a Christian group though they pretend to -- And I thought it was really funny when somebody came in through collateral. Because it was nothing that they could really do about that because I mean it's it's it's festive it's Monica. But this group which really. Trying to incite people. And what really struck me is that this is totally contrary to the way it. The Jesus would react in that situation and I don't pretend to be an expert on Jesus. But the Jesus that I know what I've read about. Would never have acted this way. And that which you read about Jesus is. That he embrace people that these people are are are condemning in a very vicious. Way even using profane and and question me on the total straight guy. Find it offensive I found -- just so hypocritical that they were so mean and so issues. And yet the they claim to the spreading the word of Christ and the love of Christ. So you know one watch for this group don't engage with them. Affect my son to me like 2% earlier today and he told me it somebody he knows who's -- for morning draw. Confronted that group. She went to jail for twelve hours. And was it was out on thousand dollar bond. So. They have a right to do what they're doing. It doesn't mean what they're doing. Is right. And I think it's important to call it like it is. These Christians. If you -- Joyner show with a comment about anything we're talking about tonight and I guess you've been talking about whether or not this kind of protesting are spreading the word is. In lightning. Or is it offensive. If you wanna join ushered in -- numbers 2601870. Toll free 866889070. Text number is a 77.

But there's one group with a really prominent signs. And they former circle around themselves. The -- utilize one of the city provided. Barricades. And then they make a circles so they've they've they've got it coming both directions. And they're very very hateful and I had -- counter. I didn't escort but they just started berating me as I took a picture of them there's a picture of the guy. Who was on the -- the megaphone. Who is saying these. A negative things about leaving was just saying horrific things and generally using profanity that is -- May -- just about about gays and lesbians. That -- what you wanna thing. But there's no need to use profanity. Especially in public. What year. Using stereotypical. Things to describe. The gay and lesbian community.

Here's sent a text about something that this person this -- -- during Mardi -- do you remember that to balloon shops you can complete those collections estimate called earlier and said that. There were parades and had a purple and green gold balloons. And you try -- to get the collection and I I do have a big memory that I I never did it personally. But yeah you could go to certain deployment jobs and complete your your collector but see that's where it really got dishes -- -- operates. You don't like if you had like the gold and the green and you needed the purple. -- you would do almost anything to get that purple. The -- Corsets it's changed and now people go crazy over over everything and you know I I still marvel at -- I I bought across a wonderful time of year and it's such a unique and amazing event. But if you if you sit back and you watch it and I I thought about this the other right when I was watching a parade. There's absolutely no way to intellectually exploring. This whole process. There's no way the -- explain why people get on the floats and do what they do. And there's no way do intellectually explain why people line the parade route. And do what. What they do. But yet. You don't have election explained it. It's just fun and it's a very very unique celebration. I looked out of the other side of our our building a little while ago. And I saw a lot of traffic leaving downtown on campus. And now tomorrow is gonna be totally different but this time of year if you're on pointers. During the day and early in the evening. Do not turn on any street that leads up toward canal and the French Quarter it's just it's a parking lot. And then earlier today I heard -- halting. They're they're honking at people that there's no word ago. So why would you even do that in in the first place AME -- just it's so much quicker to park somewhere. And walk. If you wanna join us tonight with your comment we're talking about morning draw tomorrow is Mardi Gras day and you know here's something else to remember right I thought about this over the weekend as well. Hate this happens once a year. And this excitement doesn't last long it's a great distraction from the reality you know lies it's a great break from the problems that we have. And it's just a good time to get out and come together is as well it doesn't matter who you are what you are what position you have in life. We can all come together and just enjoy this party. But let's relish tonight even if it's chilly. And is certainly enjoy and relish tomorrow -- coming downtown. Our unity uptown you could be a Metairie nor short -- it doesn't matter where you are enjoy it. 'cause it's only going to be tomorrow and that it will be over so enjoyable is here. This is Disco show and we'll be right back with more live from New Orleans under -- WL did you watch the Oscars last -- -- watch much of it. I thought it was great. Allen did a phenomenal job she is so spontaneous. And me she she went -- the audience several times. And at one point got all these stars together and it facility and it was really it was amazing pink. Did somewhere over the rainbow. -- my god she is she weighs just phenomenal. And a bit Miller did wings beneath a wind beneath my wings. And she did that at the end of just a collage of all those famous people who it is passed away. Over the course of the year a -- -- UConn -- acceptance speech. Once just. Amazing and and and over the weekend aside Dallas spires club. And -- now. What it interesting movie. About. About government red tape. And about how American citizens. Are being hurt. And not helped. Medically. Because of government red tape. So. Find a movie if it's stated -- seats. Are we till it comes out but he deceit and Dallas boys' club phenomenal movie and Matthew economy lost so much weight to this movie. He looks great but I take it in movie. It was just amazing. To see how skinny -- he had gotten to play district you know quite often you hear about actors I've been gaining weight for apart. He totally lost so much weight I mean he looked emaciated. And so was just really interesting to practicing at and just his his acting ability was was phenomenal. We're talking about some of the things that. We'd like -- all but -- on it if you're gonna participate in in -- especially for those of you who work experience it for the first time effect that's -- -- -- -- -- -- -- you know. If if you're experiencing. Mardi -- for the very first time. And you -- tell us what it's looking like from from your standpoint. Our numbers 2601878. Toll free 86688. -- here which seventy. -- a text numbers -- and the reason. I mention that there was something that I learned about the king cake today that I I never knew grew up here. Never knew this about the king -- and carnival season this whole thing that climax is tomorrow began on January 6 epiphany king's day. Twelve days after Christmas when the Weizman visited baby Jesus bearing gifts. Well a Tiffany is also the traditional beginning of the king cake season. Legend tells us that king cakes were made in a circle. To represent the circular journey of the wise men. And they went into a circle -- they took a circle to go visit date that Christ child. Because they wanted to confuse king Herod. Who had a plan on killing the Christ child they thought that came here which followed them. And they would lead his people. To the Christ child to kill Christ. As so they took this this circular. Journey and -- -- about the the king cake and originally king cakes at a point or being in them and if the person got that in their piece was believed to have good luck. For the upcoming year in Louisiana the tradition started to placing a plastic baby in the king cakes. And if you get the baby you're supposed to have the next party -- I do remember as a teenager growing up we've been asking -- parties every year and before morning draw. And whoever got the baby called their parents at the party instead to wing of the party at our house next week end parents always said yes. And as I mentioned earlier. If we knew that somebody had really cool parents. We -- to take the baby and we would strategically placed in their peace so they would get the baby unit that he hated that it would have beat their house. Because we knew they'd -- parents are in your WWL. -- And it's like rob but I heard you mention the -- briefly and you know figured we could talk what that he wanted it sure. You actually thought -- that it is jobless. Yeah I did I I like there's monies that look every once in a while Ellen bothers me I don't. But I think I thought she did a good job. I don't know that this increased dude I was missing Seth -- from last year so badly after watching Alan -- -- public validation he had no material what so ever thought she did was. Stunts in the crowd I mean. That dealt meeting with -- keep but the thing with the debate with the pieces and the the -- he she did she had no material whatsoever onstage I mean art can get you joked at least. Jim -- was one to present at last night. He put his two minutes on stage. Was more -- than doubled three and a half hours and element on. UC -- -- I get so tired. The the staged jokes I mean I play Elena has some early funny lines in in just the way the -- she was presenting things but at LA and I understand it I don't. -- ought to be accountable to. Yeah -- all she did at least that the for a lecture he did kind of both -- he's saying he'd be at he had been. -- aggressive judo and actor Alec aggressive comedians personally I'll -- -- you know what Billy Crystal but he can't do it every single year. But. There's so many good comedians out there that. Actual comedian that balance -- her kind of coming to me is very nice in the land but it's very -- -- -- I went a little more about what the -- Oh like the edgy comedians and I I agree with you and I did think sect says McCall did a great job I thought he brought something really special to the Oscars but yeah I I did I I like the break -- -- that Ellen Davis from the that the structured debts and and you know I guess in in doing. -- thought she did you do well I'd like Ellis L golf may put on the whole thing within the crowd -- pretty much. Well but it was still it was different it doesn't mean everybody's gonna like it but I mean I'm glad you called it's time to express your opinion because I'm sure a lot of people agree with -- -- I thought she was good. It have a good night if you rejoice for the comment about -- they were talking about tonight it's a -- big draw the day before Mardi Gras and a lot of people around there you might be in your car you might is gone to a parade earlier tonight in Europe heading home.
