Yes sure Perry. Very strong Barbara language are made not just something you may hear on television. You know that's -- that's really that's not necessary it's not even necessary in the French Quarter but that would be placed forward and I'm I'm sorry you had an experience. All I'm I'm I'm -- from the backcourt born and raised -- brought a white and I lived it and bleak for Portugal would come -- brought. And (%expletive) that I was just kind of haven't explained the people that that's not always this way and think about the good aren't bad. What the other night parade jet went through and a great job -- a weekend. Don't just so true experience it that quiet about all are pretty negative and I'll -- And if that's an hour that'll be a great topic for this cute show I'm all for freedom of speech by debt and if if we're gonna have rules about letters being off the street we're gonna have rules about. Where the grills and their parties need to be deported parties need to be we should have some really strict rules when it comes to Volcker music. In public like that that is absolutely unnecessary and it should be against the law. With all due respect for the First Amendment that should be a law. I hope you do that sure because I really think that's a topic a lot of people get it. And it I totally agree with you and also while I appreciate you calling and I'm I'm glad you pointed out to your friends it. And you know this is one experience but more regulars really an entire season. And overall you think about all that happened over the weekend and the people who were out there today in the parade and on the streets and in the French Quarter. Those sort out there are having fun and if you have to be out there well it could stay home and just enjoy yourself. -- -- the body drama on the review continues on every WL. And good afternoon I'm screwed on the Mardi Gras -- review here and to be WL with a crew of WWL we protect -- -- the French Quarter and all over later we'll get some updates from the French Quarter and the Mary coming up. In just a little wild if you -- join us our numbers 2601870. Toll free 866889070. And a text numbers 877 -- traffic update coming appeared in just a few minutes. Earlier today the I ten between Baton Rouge and Lafayette was closed it's my understanding is that escorting traffic through there. And we just talked to a troop a in Baton Rouge with the -- at a state police. Answered Sandefur told us that everything is open. There were some icing earlier today we -- above freezing now and it's gonna remain above freezing but this was of much colder morning draw that we anticipated -- last week I remember on the the show. Talking about how morning on day it was gonna rain Monday rain Wednesday. But what god it was going to be partly cloudy high of 55 it was going to be cooler than expected well it turned out to be a lot cooler than expected but here's the great thing. You were forced to go out. And those who went out whether they were parading or. In the crowd when they were on the operator in the they were having fun. And that's what money -- about it and I guarantee the first quarter will be here and getting more and more Crawford as time goes on. I -- is a texted it reads. I -- -- this is the band chicken on the bone will be out there were loading up right now headed to the old opera house 601 -- we started 730 I'll I noticed this when I was watching Denver mistreated or a street earlier. There are a lot of places that are crowded on the inside and many of those places might be empty because so many people around industry. I've noticed a trend the last couple of years. That. There are fewer people showing scared. And this year I guess in particular this Mardi Gras day with it being well not spring break like whether. We're not seeing as much -- -- much Guinness or near received at that as a -- their hearts of people out there. A discuss blog is on our website at WW dot com and it's that the top eight things we like Peter know about morning draw. And as I was doing some research that is yesterday. I I learned some things about morning draw that I really didn't know I I was born here I grew appear in the morning -- veteran experience morning draw. All of my life over the years. And there were some things about Mardi -- that I -- a few things I didn't know that I thought were very very interesting so all of that's in the -- blog and if you're on the Mardi -- veteran or. If you know people who have experience morning draw and they they leave somewhere else or whether they moved and came back he went to share this with the reader and shared. With -- -- can give us your comments if you like also. It's honor we're excited to be if -- dot com the top eight things we think you should know. About money girl I I I thought it was a great morning draw again it's not just morning -- date. But it's the entire Mardi Gras season in this officially begins on January the sixth which is the epiphany a king's day. And the beginning of the king cake season January 6 who has been going on for for a long time. But in Russia involved in the balls you don't really think of -- -- beginning until the parades start to begin a couple of weeks before wanna draw and just before more Detroit's. It's not it's operated. So over the weekend if you think about the temperatures and and what it was like Saturday and Sunday for an -- and baucus and all the race really throughout the area North Shore. West Bank. Metairie and downtown it really was a great Mardi Gras season. And -- -- the if you if you go out there you will see people who wore. Have a good time. I did have -- Karen and I met this is something that I mentioned in the top eight things that you should know -- morning drawn. Number two on the the list of the top rated and we do the top eight because every night for those of you who I don't tune in a regular basis. Dispute showed 92 midnight here -- WWO we've restored assure every Saturday to clocked at the top eight to date. And is the top eight things -- like you know as we begin the show and its -- there was talk about throughout the show. Well yesterday one -- -- night do we did the top eight things you should know about -- dropped. Number two was an encounter that I had on -- -- street Sunday afternoon. It was an absolutely beautiful day. And I came across a group of those. Religious people who were on Bourbon Street a spreading. The word. However this particular group. Which not really very Christian like. In their behavior. And in what they said. And soul number two what a -- of a topic today is all the Christian groups on urban streets promoting draw are not really Christians. Now that doesn't mean it's some margin and I did pass some that word. You know we're not harassing anybody they were being very very nice. But there was this one group and I'll I'll talk more about that coming up but also like. I've set out on Mayer's Twitter account just announced and some pictures that I taken of this particular group and I think it's it's important to point now dead. Not all Christians are like these particular Christians also we had to call a moment ago from somebody who is really disappointed because he'd had a bad experience today. Some people he had people in from out of town but some people set up close to him and his group and they were playing really vulgar music. That can't happen that should not be tolerated to me. That's. As important as any of the new rules that they have put into effect also just. Just using profanity. In -- I am all for freedom of speech but. Abuse of freedom of speech to just. Use profanity consistently around families is totally. Inappropriate. If you wanna join -- show with a comet are numbers 2601872. All free 866889. Is nearly seventy.

And also if you have experienced Mardi Gras today or at any time during this this carnival season. Let's talk about that as well we -- experience like. Where you're from the few people who talking of talked about vulgarity. And if somebody was pulling for -- -- music around the family in the family had to leave that's that's really necessary. And I realize that young people can be very rebellious and I guess to some degree I was rebellious when I was young as we all were. But it that's something that should not. We tolerate. And also ran into. A group that was Terry I had a bit of the brief. Verbal encounter with a group on Bourbon Street they proclaim to be Christians. But they're not. And we'll talk about it coming up has also gotten a text about something happened with a Christian group is probably the same group. Hi this Wasilla outside of the mass at the Saint Louis cathedral. On Sunday. Really so in the these people call themselves Christians really amazing and also let's let's talk about those people who. I couldn't stay home if they wanted to -- human have been able to stay home and enjoy yourself for you chose to you can get out in all of this and and have fun and again those who were in the race and those who are on the parade routes. They have a good time and the people the quarter those who decided to go out they were having fun but there are people like police officers and city workers who. Have to be out and have to work at a time like this. And it's it's not something that they would choose to do especially to Weathers is like this but they're out there. And doing their job so the rest of us can have a good time from they'll chase -- Euro on WW real happy Mardi -- Yeah. That's really -- shout out these guys -- -- today man by phone or. Where it -- oil -- -- you know our group and and -- look at voluntary. And local -- a broad indictment are currently in New York. They have no clue today it's a regular update so. And two. It. You know. Shout out -- -- but let them. -- -- I appreciate you calling and I'm sure they do as well and there are a lot of people like dead because they're businesses like your business that -- don't stop on Marty Roth. Because is. Offensive to people around the country you're still doing business where there's -- and around the world this is no special day everywhere else in the country. Exactly exactly. -- ought to -- All right -- -- -- -- glad you called. From the CBD frank you're on Mardi Gras mambo under the WL. -- cute Natalie -- People on Garcia's do you. I just one -- talk about. My -- it I mean I know the weather. Some people quote you know what is it outside you know that great Iranian. You know mark -- I'm not deliberately apparently it spreads to our adult side. I think comment. On the undo all the police department -- EMS workers anywhere around. And regular big figures are out we actually have -- experience. Now last night and I doubt. In my body without oh. Well a lot of bulk Dutch ideal. That's when our parents don't pick itself there's all samarra so the most was Barbara you know -- that you're. All cholera like at a police -- -- very China now all those one bank have brought their artwork and other well a lot of the current problem. And you know I just wanna you know aren't that respect our prayer dispute. Also ought to respect we're due talk about. A harbors or person -- group yeah I think I have the same thing outer. With that group that you're talking about. Erica like -- like an -- black. Chart looking through the area portable and walked out there and elect -- Berrian talked me out there novel area we're we're we're we're still -- we're trying to get somewhere right now and have a chart go out a way to. -- -- all they aren't like all the back to know who you're gonna you're talking like all of us are the. -- this -- you know and and the interesting thing is this group that I'm talking about they have the the best manufactured signs they seem to be the most coordinated. There are a couple of groups on on Bourbon Street. And they the other groups were not a problem but this particular group of alleged Christians it was it was very very aggressive and I can't wait to get into what they were actually saying and what what they said about me they don't know me. And yeah they they picked on me in the in the crowd which was kind of amazing to me so you know let's just remember that. Don't. Don't even get the impression. That these are good Christians just because they cling to -- Exactly I mean are there they're well you know they had like lot like eat it like most. Most are wires and aren't like that I mean it is just like you just about -- it all on purpose in it on the matter -- -- -- -- walk a very. -- that testers. -- you think that you're you're trying to -- -- -- -- not try to occupy your topic on the outside you know. Yeah or judge me by just because I'm walking off prior restraint obviously you know they're not law. And say I think that's the other really great pointed there are people who believe that just because your suburban street figured this -- ex general for -- everybody's a sinner. So let's not start pretending that did that those on Bourbon Street are sinners and and the rest art and that's what -- -- so appalling about the mentality of some of these. -- so over zealot Christians. Exactly it's it is that no -- when a group like their claims the targeted at just in -- that put the road that are people who are actually try to do that. LA again against the rest of us that are Christians a bad name. Frank so did -- the guy finally left you alone. Exactly I mean they I like -- are -- now about the -- period like that. You know what I mean I do let the dog walked away it I'm not trying to get -- any fights or anything like that you know. You do a lot of pro but the president that for retirement and back to monitor also sent Katrina you know what to do it back although it's going to be all -- Well frank I hope you enjoyed it and again the weather might not have been ideal of the day but everybody out there is happening good time and they're out there by choice and -- the weekend weather was spectacular so I hope -- enjoyed it. It was beautiful we had a great time at pocket and -- evident in an obvious last night that they want our I'm so dead zone right now preaching ball epitomize it. Financially. You know. Which you know I would -- any other lately where party on it it took all about it it's not -- I -- out. -- frank I appreciate you calling nationalistic. Here is a Texan reads float escorts going through New Orleans east on I ten heading east left in middle lane blockage. I'm going into saint Tammany parish should be aware that here's a -- -- Matthew 71. Judge not. -- Oscars here is another tax. It says sent Sunday after mess the Christians. Showed up -- the most un Christian with the most and Christian display of freedom of speech I have ever witnessed. In front of the cathedral. One of them was on -- Mike calling the bishop. Green had. Saying that he could not save his flock. Because he himself was molested. And he could not keep his flock from the sins of suburban street. I'm all for freedom of speech but this was totally uncalled for. And April claimed to be Christians this is a joke they need to go home. I didn't see him last night and I got -- the at midnight so writing it down the quarter to deal. Until really late so they may have gone home because they were better rest up for for today. And so the fact that they weren't out there doesn't mean that they weren't out there and maybe they're out their today but this particular group of of Christians they looked to be. The most organized. Because they have the did the best. Signs that made of this really very durable durable on material and they they have. Anti at the bottom of the sides in the signs are are way up in the sky but they. They have these these hand whole hand holes where they can hold on they've got what I mean there really well organized and the problem is is that. You know some poor suckers gonna walk along -- think oh my god these are Christians I guess I'm doing the wrong thing these are not. Christians. And it really isn't really as the shape. Here is taxed -- that reason I believe that if someone is playing vulgar music. Then. And well basically they say I deal with it I don't rain on someone else's parade when they're trying to enjoy today. Everyone is here to have fun. So it'll be a stick in the mud because she don't like the music that their -- make your day find another way don't try to ruin someone else's day. You know I'm all for everybody having fun and I'm all for being tolerant but part of that tolerance is you don't have to play vulgar music. And if that's the only way that you can have fun then that's that's a problem. I'd nobody should be playing ball good music around families. And -- may be you think that's a violation of freedom of speech and that's something else that we could talk about the that is not. Necessary. So we'll continue to talk about vulgar language here at at -- drawing some of the things that we see in here and also -- experience like from -- 2014. And have you experienced those. Alleged Christians in the quarter court condemning everybody which to me it's very very unlike Christ. You know what I've read about what I've learned about Christ. Throughout my life is. It is very different from what these people are doing and yet April claimed to be doing it in the name of Christ. How pathetic. If you would join our short numbers 260187.
