Tonight on the SCOOT show with guest host Bob Mitchell: Are you for or against the Bible being the official state book of Louisiana? And if not the Bible what should it be? AND: Have you seen the KFC commercial that shows a teen giving his prom date a fried chicken corsage? Remember your prom? Did you do anything crazy for your date? Where did you take her to eat before? PLUS: almost everyone has imagined what it would be like to find a message in a bottle, well it actually happened a few days ago to a National Honor student helping in the Great American cleanup. Knowing that it would not be found for 100 years or more, what message would you write and put in a bottle?
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?

About what's going on in in our culture right now. Our home page you know each catcher -- look at all all of you know. Maybe something about the comments which we've.

You know it has -- -- note boat you know the news at this time. -- -- -- -- Well you're right I mean. I can remember when I think the name of the game most Paul is that right. All it. Remember when Paul came -- we thought. Now this is really something cool. Yeah I can rumor some of the first video while. Football games that I remember I think in television had a football game where. You have certain plays you could call and you call the office and the other person would call the defense and you thought that was just so great now. The the technology -- everything. I recently got what -- call -- mark -- I held on to my flip phone. For many many years in fact my wife had traded firms in and I said that you'd you'd keep that beautiful mind goals I want to recycle it to yours and finally. I mean it looked like a red -- cellphone I had to put together with duct tape and was fallen apart and finally the battery stopped charging. And I got a Smartphone -- smarter than me if I can't figure out half of things on the phone. Yeah well. -- -- all along little. It was still so flip outs followed and so are actually wouldn't mind goes where it. But the abilities that they -- you're right the technology today. And it just seems to be growing by leaps and bounds I read something. On line. I think it was. I don't know what to -- Google while these companies. Or hasn't been a big contact lens that you can Wear that you can take pictures and. Oh goodness yeah. So that's kind of in that you know that in the future little bit clueless on the -- and you mentioned. -- mentioned all. Our numbers first top seeing all that you know academy -- to Biloxi. That difference -- host yeah. And it has the the first apartment seeing all. And -- and -- Pacman and that's another early game. I was pretty early on the news it didn't world ought to call. Yeah right you know but the -- we thought of those games were really really release something now. I you you looked at the I watch some of the games at the migrant cages and it's it's so -- so realistic that's what that's what concerns -- about about the violence and in some of these games because it looks so. Real but you know people get their head chopped off but still live and a -- under a still wonder how that affects our kids who play them everyday. Yeah because yeah you wanted to write a -- Our enemy is even realistic hopes on the 10 march. So what what else is going on down the parish anything. No not to Moses an iceberg that's region with. But the -- day and night and. Touch -- -- day approaches calling. All right to have to zero -- 7866.

Now argue for or against the Bible be in the official state book of Louisiana you can go online and cast your vote at a WWL dot com. And talking about what we Leo remembering. From the lights and the reason that we are doing this is that. I guess. I guess the view think and create something crazy enough for the kids in Gulfport -- -- and to make -- awful lot of money KFC. Has. A commercial in the will be feted and it shows -- team. Giving his prom -- A fried chicken -- actually a piece of chicken with some some baby rabbit. I have been yet able to figure out whether she is supposed to eat the chicken. Or maybe. In with a slow dance you're supposed to eat the chicken as as the date. So we we wanna know did you do anything crazy. Where your date now I don't remember our government must senior prom. I don't think I did anything crazy for. Asking for the girl to the prominent was just a straight days -- the problem Mayo was glad she said yes. -- do remember that -- we went out to eat after and of course everyone tried to sneak alcohol into the problem was kind of like the right of passage. So help me out here did you do anything could raise the bring your date or what do you what do you remember the most about his senior problem. Did you go out to eat before the prom and -- what when I was going to high school the tradition what did you go to eat before.

That was open. Was the one here in new world of every book every body is doing your taxes on line. I read some more information about doing taxes on line and it's -- -- as we go into the future. That they're making it the the computer programs are making it easier and easier and easier. That left homeless people will be going to places like H&R block that we will be doing this of their own products. So. Have you had any any -- horror stories the latest thing that I heard about what's going all the Artest are actually thinking. About starting to tax your job -- so if you work for. One of these big companies have a couple of friends that work at the two sales and they get free food everyday. The talking about some Connolly trolling to tax. -- you can actually be working for -- one. Allegation that you W twos and then I guess depending on how much you eat there free food. You'd get a 1019 and it's an -- A 1099. For perks at work. Is that right. If he had any really bad run ins with the virus and what things do you think you should be able to -- That you -- -- that it over and over again as much money as I spent on my dog. That should be about dependent. On it let be grab a couple of -- Couple follow exposed to -- like huge crowds. And -- for parking. And but all crew's team -- I don't like huge draws and cruising for parking. Then the long walk to get there. Quit going to the positive -- strawberry for the -- -- it's gotten too big that's an answer to we were collected earlier above video and the purge corporate -- getting too -- of go to Howard Victoria Howard. -- Obama I would go to the real deal maybe be doing the that's -- the French Quarter but imitate what I enjoyed it.
