Join Scoot as he brings you his ever popular Top 8 @ 8.
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?

It is another very comfortable night I've got a course just warming up during the day and it it'll be hot to over the Memorial Day weekend but basically really no chance of rain through the whole weekend so if you are thinking about heading to the beach. Go to the beach we're gonna talk about that on the show tonight I realized it's Thursday night. And we will be back in our show tomorrow night but by tomorrow night's -- party going to be gone so we'll start talking about the Memorial Day weekend. And your favorite spot on the beach along the Gulf Coast. I definitely have a favorite spot. Well it's it's like two spots in particular but it's really in the same area. Not to say anything negative about any of the Florida Alabama Mississippi Gulf Coast beaches because it's all great. But I do have one particular favorite spot if you listen to -- -- our regular basis you know what that's bodies but will be talking about that. And here's our -- to do a pretty general opinion poll tonight will you be traveling this holiday weekend or just an article. It is your opinion by going to our website WW dot com attracted polls are showing. Give you updates starting coming up here in just few minutes it's time for tonight's topic today to the topic things we like you know as we begin our show tonight on WWL. Number eight. So I mean to me about whether Axl Rose lead singer of Guns 'N Roses is the greatest rock singer ever. I got a text about this follows on the air last night and I found out about it today. There's a website concert hotels dot com. And they released a short. Of the vocal ranges. Of pop props at rock singers and Axl Rose had the broadest range. Which led some to conclude including at Levy in the USA today to admit that he was the greatest singer. No that's not what it meant it meant that he had the greatest range but not that he was the greatest singer. So tonight on the show to debate continues we'll talk about who is the greatest. Pop rock -- And if Axl Rose is that the greatest. He certainly -- appear very close to the top so be thinking about who you think is the greatest pop rock singer I say pop rock singer because. Right -- great range. A prince who was among those who meet the highest notes which -- as a surprise to any of us so I I -- pop rock you know contemporary. Rock singers. And then there are always those singers who became really famous. And they might be able to carry a tune but they're not very good singers so we'll talk about that on the show tonight. Number seven on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. Our new test the new river -- all opened up today I'm sure you saw a video of this if you watching the news earlier today. Video ball is a collection of outlet stores on the river where the river walk used to be which is where they get the 1984 world's fair ones in New Orleans. And this should really proved to be a great addition to the city as -- Sino. Could be on the as far as I know this is the only outlet mall. -- downtown area. Because you don't usually see outlet malls like on your way to the Gulf Coast -- -- off the interstate ten. You see him in more. Rural settings it was a big Albert Mullen in Alabama. It's super off off like ten or maybe it's off that highly that you take going to go shores. But the new river walk mall is opened ultimately it's supposed to have a country music bar which is going to be really great for the city. And that will bring a lot of local people downtown who might not ordinarily go downtown. And with the popularity of country music in amazes me that there's not a good country music -- In a whole new military and if there is one that I don't know about -- you can send me text or call the show. But I remember years ago it was the hired hands in a bullet Carrie Lee Fisher to Jefferson Parish alone that. A mustang Sally east in the did not eighties wise really hot spot. I remember I had -- a knee surgery. Like the day before. And however the friends and we went to a -- salaries and he added these surgeries well we were both on crutches. So in these girls want to know what was wrong and we told them we were bull riders have we got injured. And they actually bought it so it was pretty cool. I got this girl's attention because she thought it was a bull rider. Because you know you don't have to be that big to via. A bull -- in any event I'm looking forward to the new river walk mall and as I've said many times on the show and and and you've been part of this conversation as well. When you think about all the and the waterfront property we have the river the lake all the waterfront property. There are really not very many places that you could just go hang out on the water in the New Orleans area. And it really is a shame and I've realized that their reasons for but I don't think any of those reasons are legitimate excuse is we need to have more things on the water. And when I saw -- walked cutting going down I thought man this is just such a great piece of property. Something needs to be done with this and then no one after that it was announced that there were plans to redo it so it is now open number six on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. The official beginning of hurricane season is less than two weeks away. And federal forecasters are predicting less speed storms than normal. Less speaks storms than normal that's good. Now let's hope their right this year they were wrong last year last year they predicted. -- season with more big storms in normal. And it proved to be a season with plastic storms than normal so will say I hope they were wrong last year and their right -- -- the wrong question I hope you're right this year. But you know it only takes it that it could be a season with just have a few big storms. But -- one of those storms hit your area that's all it takes to make it a devastating hurricane season for you so. Even though they're predicting. -- -- lower than normal number of big storms. You still need to be prepared. Number five on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. A 63 year old man was arrested. When his gun went off in a movie theater. George Gholston was arrested when his two shot 38 caliber dare venture went off in a movie theater in Memphis. I I love stories like this. Why is this guy bringing a gun went in into the movie theater. And then for all of those who say well you know if if everybody would be art than it would be the world would be a better place the world would be safer. OK let's think about that this is a perfect time to talk of markets. This guy's gun falls out of his pocket. And it fires around. There was an off duty police officer. At the place at the time in the movie. He was immediately arrested by an off duty police officer -- are also had posted signs that said weapons are prohibited inside the building. So the guy defied the sign and brought a gun in the building. So for those who argued that if in Colorado if that the audience in that movie theater. Would have -- -- Then they could've taken the guy down. Is it really a good idea for average citizens of movie theater for example are setting like that to be armed. A realistic about this case it happened and in Memphis. The guys going balls out of his pocket it -- what do everybody's armed. And date the gun goes off is everybody gonna jump up and put their guns at this guy or maybe even start shooting. Again I just don't think that is. The answer. Number four never five and -- wait for part par five number four number four tonight I went to east Jefferson I don't remember how to count. Number four on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. A new video shows a dynasty star Phil Robertson making more anti gay comments at this time during a sermon in a church. So you know I mean what is a surprise about this. I mean if he's in a church. He's making. Anti gay comments certainly has a right to do that and people have a right to react to to to what he says but again there's. There's a surprise here. I mean what's the worst that can happen all the gays and lesbians who to deduct dynasty every week are gonna stop watching. Yeah right all the gays and lesbians who tune in -- dynasty might get angry and stop watching. So actually his anti gay comments. Really feed the audience. That watches -- dynasty. Never forget tonight's list of the top eight at eight. And we get legislature passed a bill. It could force the closure of several of the State's five abortion clinics. If there is less. Convenience for abortion. Will people be more responsible when it comes to sex. I would hope that nobody. Is having sex. Casual reckless sex or even sex with somebody that they know. With the idea that I you know we don't have to worry if I get pregnant or just get an abortion. I hope nobody's doing that. But unfortunately I guess some people war. I'm pro choice. Because I'm not a woman and I don't think it's my place to tell -- what to do with her body legally I'm pro choice. But I'm also pro life I'm also anti abortion. Abortion should not be used as a convenient former birth control. And if there are less abortion clinics. Do you think people will become more responsible. When it comes to sex. And if they will become more responsible when it comes to sex then I have to say that's a good thing. Number two on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. Conservatives have written now a 121. Page policy manifesto. It's titled room to grow. Conservative reforms. For a limited government and a thriving middle class. The document lays out a new direction for the Republican Party with more emphasis placed on economic issues and less emphasis placed. One hot button social issues. This group blog tonight turning on a website right now at a BW real dot com for page down there right column under our opinions. Is titled another new direction for Republicans. Here we go again another new direction now this week during some primaries on Tuesday. On the Tea Party candidates many promising Tea Party candidates. Who are expected to do very well lost their bids to mainstream Republican candidates.
