Here it is the day after morning draw Ash Wednesday and I'll tell you this city is so amazing to me. Yesterday I was wading through trash in the streets and to this by this morning you didn't even know that there was a party year. I can't imagine any other city being that quick and had good. And cleaning up that goes to. That the city of New Orleans and the workers here and it was just amazing value -- the weather wasn't great yesterday. I got here -- -- and part of the -- Mardi Gras mambo yesterday here with a crude of the WL. And I was part of the review until 6 o'clock at 6 o'clock left and draw some stuff off at home and then walked into the quarter. And it was just amazing how quarter the crowded what how her part of the quarter was buy say at 7 o'clock. It was I took a picture at noon. Of the -- sinister balcony and urban street protests at this out to on my Twitter account. I took a picture of the balcony the sinister and Herbert street at noon. And it was desolate. Nobody was on the balcony and only a few people. Walking down the street just -- I've never seen anything like that on Bourbon Street. No matter what the weather's been like on Mardi Gras day and by 7 o'clock now what do the same spot and took another picture. And it was amazing because the balcony which packed and people were on the street. And you know it nobody had to go out there if you if you went out yesterday when he went to a parade -- to the French Quarter it was by choice. And everybody who was out seemed to be having a good time some people seem to be having so much fun I'm not sure they even remember how much fun they really had. It's time for tonight's top -- -- dates in the topic things we'd like Jeter though as we begin our show tonight under VW will number eight. Yesterday people were mystery party for -- draw and today many of those same people. Who were in church getting ashes on their foreheads for Ash Wednesday. Yesterday was -- blowouts. On the Christian calendar before the -- sacrificial time of -- Are you giving up something for -- here's what I love this time of year talked about it last year believe -- we'll talk about it again this year. I love the way we talk about crawfish boils. Turbulent. Friday -- -- on Friday during went. So -- crawfish boils we've. Go to our favorite seafood restaurant to order these incredible seafood meals look this is not much of a sacrifice. I'm telling you not to enjoy your crawfish I'm not telling you don't enjoy your seafood and all the things that -- -- during what I'm not saying don't enjoy it but don't pretend. It's any candidate sacrifice. So let's talk about what -- you went out yesterday he should stay home -- again that the French Quarter was once crowded and are you giving up anything for -- You know I thought about this in church earlier today I'm. I'm gonna work on some things for me. It really have a lot to do with -- obsessive compulsive disorder so it's really nothing concrete that I'm gonna give up it's really nothing that I can. Really explained to you but it's some internal things and you know I I think it's boring to give up something I remember priest once. It was last year. Before. Actually was last year during lent. A decrease was -- talking about how you should give up something that you really light. That way when you start doing it again after -- over after Easter you realize that you gave up something new you made a sacrifice. Sometimes people say -- you should give up something that you don't want it ever do again people try to give up things that make themselves better. So I would try to think of something tangible. A to give up but there's some things that internally. I would like to to work on personally as far as I'm concerned I hope you for -- thought about those things is well. Or perhaps you're gonna try and be more like Jesus as archbishop Gregory -- is suggesting. So we'll talk about that on the show tonight number seven on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. Three were great students. At a central California elementary school were caught smoking pot. Now police want to find out where the kids got the pot. To eight year olds. And 19 year old had been released. To their parents. Once we got the -- for their parents they would if they stole their parents stash. Sonoma California police chief says stated that I -- had to -- eight year old who -- nine year old. Were discovered by another student last week of the Senora elementary school in California. They were smoking pot in the school bathroom. The student found them told officials and officials -- contacted the police in the third graders were then. Taken into custody but then released -- to their parents. And they're trying to find out whether or not someone gave them the pot or did they find the body quite often -- I'm sure there are lot of parents. I know a lot of parents smoke pot. And if you're not careful on your kids confide audio we had a story on the show I guess it was when they last week. From Denver there were -- area veterinarians. Around the Denver area who were saying to people bringing their pets in. Because they've gotten into their their pot stash. And to the moral or mutual once were an iguana in a turtle. And I'm thinking what with the symptom. All you know my pets really lethargic he just sits around doesn't do anything but what -- turtles and -- do they don't do anything anyway so how would you -- -- -- one. Is stoned. In any event you know if you do smoke pot I would hope that your careful with it because it's your kids find things and I'm sure when -- -- you found stuff that your. Parents and that -- weren't supposed to necessarily find. The it to. Something like drugs or may be magazines or something number six on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. House speaker John Boehner says that he is sure that congress will. Looked into law that was passed by the DC City Council. They it's decriminalize his possession of less than one ounce of marijuana in the nation's capital. Marijuana it if if is decriminalized I guess it's kind of like making it legal in Amsterdam it's my understanding and that surprised me when I learned this recently. In Amsterdam pot is not legalize it's decriminalized. So there's really no penalty for an official penalty for that's essentially like. Making it legal now win the DC council does pass something this is the District of Columbia. And that's in the Washington DC area as you know. Congress does have the power to overturn laws that are passed by the DC council. And so this was something that John Boehner was asked today he cities unfamiliar with the law. But congress does have the authority to invalidate a local law. I haven't done that however in the last twenty years the mayor of DC Vincent Gray intends to sign the deal. Which would make possession of small amounts of pot a civil offense subject to a 25 dollar fine. However smoking in public which you'll be. A criminal offense so it'll be interesting to watch this and and maybe this is one of the ways that America in general as a as a nation. Not just individual states but as a nation. Could somehow. Emotionally. Justify. Making pots. Not a criminal offense if if this country in general doesn't wanna go is to -- -- -- of forced to legalize it. Maybe we could chest decriminalize it which again essentially. Legalize -- the that the panel before it then it's kind of like making it legal. Number five on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. Is this another sign of the changing image of the Republican Party something that we focus on quite often here on dispute shield. New Mexico governor Susana Martinez a rising star in the Republican Party is calling on her political opponents. To stop the harsh rhetoric she's also asking critics. Of President Obama who are members of her own party. To respect the office of the presidency even if they disagree. With the president politically. For those who say respect. Must be earned by a president. For those who say I disagree with the president and what he's doing therefore I cannot respect the office of the presidency. Many of these with the very same people. Who were telling the bush haters you may disagree with the president but you should respect the office of the presidency. And once again we point out a blatant hypocrisy. It lives within so many people in this country. This and governor of thumb of New Mexico. Said -- these comments when she was talking to a prominent Bettina and -- -- advocacy group. And she said that she was critical of the group referring to. Obama as the deport her in chief. -- the person who made that comment was denouncing president Obama's administration's. Deportation of nearly two million immigrants. The governor of New Mexico Martinez said to her own party -- to watch its tone and rhetoric when talking to minority voters. And she said at a conference and dead date if the GOP wants to recruit women and minority candidates. And minority and women voters they're gonna have to change their tone. We'd be talking about that for quite some time and now that message seems to be spreading. -- -- in the Republican Party and it it must if the Republicans want to win a national election. Number four on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. I -- survey teams who consume energy drinks are more likely to be involved in risky behavior including drinking alcohol and smoking while there -- some shocking news. You know this is a really interesting thing when I was reading about this -- it's a Canadian study. And they they did a study of a public high school students in Canada and 62% reported having an energy drink in a last year. One out of five say that they consume an energy drink. At least once a month. Now according to this study. Young people are also mixing alcohol with energy drinks which is a dangerous thing I know people who do that I don't think it's a good idea because you've got a stimulant and depressant working together. And had their comes a point win. The the stimulus not working and the depressing is working and look I I've I've been with people not everybody but I did with some people who. Mixed alcohol with energy drinks. And I tell -- -- as the evening goes on it's not pretty in form it. But apparently if you drink energy drinks and you're young you could possibly be more depressed -- other people which makes sense because. It's a stimulant and when you come down off the stimulant you might be depressed. It all so apparently is an indication of risky behavior. Now some of the young people say that that they like the energy drinks because. It's. Well because it basically gives them a boost. And if you're less likely to consume these energy drinks she might be less likely to be involved in in risky behavior I don't know if it's the fault of the energy drinks. It might also be well of course she get hyped up that's one thing but it also might be the fault of of just the type of person who wants to. To get that big boost a young person who's looking for a legal way to to get a boost and that really brings me to. I think an interesting question. When when I was a kid the only coffee that I ever remember drinking. Weighs just so filled with Milken had a distinct flavor it it at the flavor of coffee yet we were not allowed to drink coffee -- for kids. The united drink coffee is as a team and I'd I don't drink coffee today but that was at a time in my life when I -- drink -- -- I do drink coffee but I drink decaf. Now if parents. Allow their teenagers or their kids to drink coffee. I'll be doing it just for the taste. Or did they allow them to drink coffee. Because they want to allow their kids in their teenagers to get a boost. Well if you think about it that's that's an interesting message to give your kids OK so you you wanna get ready for school have a little coffee -- -- -- good caffeine here. Is it is that a good idea Italy kids drink coffee. Is -- a good idea what you're kids drink energy drinks. Now I don't know maybe before sporting event that would be different and may be. Maybe this is something that is totally acceptable. Should parents let their kids drink coffee.
