Tonight on the SCOOT show: we’ll get the latest theories and thoughts on Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 still missing…could the pilots have been involved or was it a catastrophic event? AND: Fred Phelps the founder of the Westboro Baptist Church is reportedly on his death bed. That has caused many people to cheer. Is it wrong to hope that a person you think is an evil person dies?
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?

Here's a text about the disappearance. Malaysian airlines flight 370. The plane disappearance reminds me of a TV show from ten years ago COLT lost. We just you know there was a time today that I was really buying into the idea that this was some kind of catastrophic event. The the the theory that smoke filled the cockpit. And that caused them to turn. The plane back toward land and made sense and they may have. Died or become unconscious. Before they can I do something about landing the plane so that. Kind of went to the idea that it was a catastrophe. But then I I later heard and again we're getting all this new different information constantly coming in none of it is really defining anything. But there was new information that. The computer was set to turn the plane. Twelve minutes before. They signed off. As in all right good night when they were signing off to an air traffic controllers entering into a different airspace. So again if you wanted to share with Dennis day you're best theory of what you've heard what you've concluded on year old from all you've heard about flight 370. Our numbers 2601870.

Kind of an -- flap up and down up and outline the dealer plates that would to call it Jack screw the whole the whole. The whole elevator rotated up and down. And what happened was able -- now. And -- jackscrew went crazy in the but the airplane it -- -- nose down condition and in those days sorry to break his. But something happened and evidently they couldn't pull the break a quick enough. And an airplane went in those first. And let me play is like -- -- If you don't if you think law concrete is. Is taught when you get to walk -- that it just disintegrated. That you write they couldn't find anything of it. It just just integrated -- Well as it disintegrated then it didn't like a lot of people believe. Remain intact and to become imbedded in the in the the sand at the bottom of the lake. Absolutely -- at the Air National Guard and air. At the end of the road -- tried. They piled up all the stuff they dug out of the mud that it rolls and rolls of sixty millimeter movie film it can't just up they came out of the -- the baggage compartment but nothing was not it was -- then. This I guess. -- queen size bed kings have been exist threads and it just it just disintegrated and we would -- -- several towns and we know where it went down a pop approximately. But you couldn't see anything and the water was murky all accounts. As -- area but I can understand why. And it's a good partners for this -- other airplane goes we just out of here operate in news breaking news breaking news this all the same. Well and they continued to call -- breaking news when there's really nothing definite about it I mean there's new information that comes out that often contradicts the information we just had the people there are quite glued to this and his -- blog is about how the media gives us exactly what we want. In this missing plane saga that's on identity of economic -- before you go. What are bring everybody up to date on what we're talking about this retiring early about the the missing Malaysian airlines flight 370. If it is in the Indian Ocean and can't find it Simonyi brought up a plane that crash in Italy punch -- I believe in 1964. It was believed embedded in the mud in the never really found that the whole plane but if you say this plane took off form what was more -- on airport at the time. I eight to 121000 feet over -- putt straight hundred they'd get to that it's how to get to that altitude so quickly. They com -- well it might have been output gets -- altitude but it did. L it's easy Wheatley from battle lake for many capitals falcon jet to but it applicant does decide -- we will. 121000 feet. I don't know -- got atomic. Yeah -- if it's if it's a piston driven planed -- and I don't think it's it's not it's certainly not gonna climb at the same rate is as a falcon jet. -- this airplane what that one for the lake. Yup that -- reject always June oh yeah. It was 880 or DC eight applicant which one. Oh did you oh absolutely and that was. I I got the impression from an earlier conversation that it was a private twin engine plane. That one in LA you notice this was a passenger a penalty yet. It took proper runway. 10 -- A margin attest to that thought that made a slight right turn it was gone after the Milosevic clinic created. I so what is it what is Jack climbs it commercial jet would climates they went 3000 feet a minute. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Because you gotta get that altitude is conserved fuel you know. And that's the other day about this jet that's that's missing picked up -- on how to fortify our target feet to back and thoughtful but you can't. And an airplane would would burn all -- AM out of Alabama it would -- just can't. Do you teach you to lean doubted higher -- really bears and then him and it's far it's 45000. Feet if they get close so that we used to call we trained. Service field was 42000. In the falcons earlier -- higher. But there are so then that the airplane basically. Has no lift it would cost coffin on a potential fallout this. Captain -- I've enjoyed our conversation but I do have to get to break and I appreciate the information. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And CNN has wall to wall coverage of this is he worthy of that much news coverage.

And it's more so on airport now we are referring internationally be hard to get that height to that quickly.
