Last night and you're the game here on -- Demi WLL issue beats ever Cisco and -- -- and it's -- L issue moves on and they'll be playing on Monday night so -- Derrek Lee will be right here. On net -- of you -- you want an update on all of that information we have and on our website which is WW real dot com. And that really is there is a great source for information and it's a very easy to navigate so if you just wanna get the latest on on everything we've got to run our website at WW real dot com. A we're talking about road rage there was an incident. I was on this morning for a Tommy Tucker at the last minute and there was a case of a woman a nineteen year old to pregnant lady. She got into an accident with a 74 year old woman. -- sharpen a forty years old -- and I was arrested on Monday march 17 this incident happened on March the twelfth. He was -- with two counts of vehicular negligent injury and hit and run. And reckless operation of a vehicle. Now according to this nineteen year old pregnant woman. This of forty year old man. Was aggressively tailgating Harris started at 8 o'clock in the southbound. Direction of transcontinental drive in Metairie. He went to airline drive and then headed toward clear view parkway. She says the driver kept moving in front of her as slammed on his brakes and attempted to force her. To hit his vehicle from the rear. And I I've I've heard of cases like this where where people do that on purpose and if you ran into somebody from behind its. It's their fault -- -- -- runs into you from behind it's their fault almost automatically. Respect I think automatically. So. That would to cause them to have been an accident even though you actually cause the accident it would be their fault. Now the victim also said that he was so rapidly changing lanes and then he it tried to cut her off and anyway if it led to an accident both the Seve four year old woman and the nineteen year pregnant woman are okay. But this just brings up this topic of road rage which we need to talk about once in awhile because it. It seems to be a problem it's -- People are very selfish on the road of people over territorial. What is it that people do that causes you to first field that instinct of of rage. Surging in your body and you know exactly what it feels like. It happens to me it happens to to all of us. Icy. Icy road rage or some degree of of road -- downtown all the time at the CBD and in the French Quarter. And quite often it comes from from cab drivers -- here's a -- reads a lot of cab drivers learn to drive in their country of origin. And if you had been overseas. You know it's a free for all and everyone for themselves while that's fine but if you come to America thinks are different. You do it our way or you don't do it here. It's really that simple so. That might be a reason but I don't think that's a legitimate excuse. And quite often -- camp look there are some great cab drivers out there always feel like after qualify this. But whenever I talk about one group it doesn't mean that I'm I'm talking about everybody within that group. There are cab drivers who are very. Aggressive drivers they're rude. On they are quick to honk their horn if you don't take off on us first of all I see people go through yellow lights. To the point where there actually going to a red light. It's not in your best interest to take off immediately as soon as the light turns green. You have to Paulus to make sure that there's nobody else coming through the light. Now that's not as big a problem here's it is -- a city like Denver where. That's that's a spectator sport. Running red lights running yellow lights and running red lights so you you you have to be careful. But if you don't take off immediately and I see most of the time when I'm walking in the CBD when the first -- you don't take off immediately. There are a lot of cab drivers now at all but a lot of cab drivers who hit the -- And you know I realize it's a minor thing but it's it's it's a necessary. And it's a reflection of an aggressive. Rage kind of attitude behind the wheel I realize that your camp driver you've got a tough job to do. I realize that you're on the street and that's your workplace. But that's still -- make you more important than anybody else. And it just looks bad to tourist it looks bad to those of us who live here. It's part of an aggressive attitude downtown it's not just cab drivers it's also residence -- and and tourist as well. But what -- see it when -- -- a cab driver or when I see somebody just laying on the port right behind somebody who's got an out of state license plate. They might be looking for their hotel. They might be trying to figure out where their goal. They might be looking for an address and and that's not just for people with an on account license plate that might be for locals as well. You know sometimes people are are trying to look for a dress look for location you look for -- they're supposed to pick up on the side of the street. Probably would have there's a -- out there that you're supposed to meet you might want to slow -- make sure you get anyway. But I'm sure that happens as well -- you just have to you have to be a little bit more patient and it it's it's it's a good idea to talk about -- Road rage because it's something that continues to increase -- if we can think of ways. To. To ease the -- that we start to feel surging in our bodies when summary doesn't he really stupid. And believe me there are a lot of people doing a lot of stupid things are out there driving. If we can find ways to ease that then we might just keep ourselves. From getting into trouble. Because there are so many people who have -- road rage go beyond a certain point.

When detective reexamine the -- coping case this is in anticipation of next -- twentieth anniversary which would be April the eighth 1990 four's record opening. Apparently committed suicide there's no reason to believe it was anything other than suicide. The images found were released immediately today. One was of a large. -- large box. Containing a spoon and what appeared to be needles on the floor next to a cigarette and sunglasses. And the other showed paraphernalia box of clothes next to cash and a wallet it appeared to show Kurt cobain's. Identification. To this day I still remember the issues that Kurt -- Torre when he committed suicide. Because it was there was a shot. From above. His house which was a relatively modest house in the Seattle area I believe it was so overlooking lake union. But a relatively modest house considering Michael Irving has accomplished at that point. But they showed his legs I guess it was from the the knees down. And that was the only shot the rest which would winners. Covered him by a deceived adored house that was the only angle they showed. And to this day and remember he was wearing something that was very popular during the grunge movement that was appear. A pair of what is all star all star -- all stars like converse. And ended it with a low cut converse with with a big star.

Somebody wants that you're you're driving slower than others want to drive that you might be driving the speed limit others wanna cashew. You start to pass him and then the person speeds up and they don't wanna let you pass and that's really dangerous in and crazy. Just you know drive that drive the speed you're driving in what somebody passion be courteous about it. It may even need to hide and I I. Need you out start you know don't make me being. Chaotic that it's not gonna happen. It hit it -- -- to crack me up because so many you know extra I need to chill is way way way. While we are we do and that's why I think it's important to talk about this where the topic here comes up and we should talk about even when the topic doesn't come up because it. At any time we talked about it we might just help somebody become a little more aware of the fact that day. They road rage over something that is really very incidentally and it's. Quite often -- it seems like it's. It's a battle where people keeping score when you know what they're not gonna beat me to get over it and it's really it's not about keeping score it's about staying alive. I'm not you're absolutely right and and it and it didn't that the bank said the miners -- out that we need ago.

Execute that appear if you wanted anyone driving in the left hand -- that's going under this be done. War you know my my general it is there are more are specially with intersect in its own right probably the wrong way. Now Jesse you don't have a problem with the driver like myself and and B artist. If if I mean I'm gonna stay in the middle lane where the right -- depending on how many links are -- highway. And I but if they're -- if there's a car going slower than me let's say it's it's it's it's too late it's it's a four lane highway. So there's somebody driving slower in the in the rightly. So I'm gonna pass that person. But you might be going faster than me and so you're on my tail because I'm not passing fast enough but as long as I'm passing the car on the right. And as long as -- get over suicide clear the vehicle then I'm on passing. Then I've really use the left lay in the way it's supposed to be used. Erica and there are people who want you to pass faster so they they still get on your tail and it's. Really it's it's it's such it's such a territorial thing that I -- I don't think people realize how how superficial. It is to try to feed geared their ego or to feed their sense of power by doing these maneuvers on on the road. Will debate at the bigger that mine in I can Google places and achieved probably the most infamous. It is like when you're coming from.
