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's time for tonight's topic to date here this topic things we like you know as we begin our show tonight on WWL. Number eight. Madonna did not show up for jury duty today at 9 o'clock this morning at the Manhattan Supreme Court I can't figure out where she is really started reading this I'm thinking Los Angeles production to New York she's got. The number of places around the world. I she didn't show up at 9 o'clock this morning they were expecting her to Manhattan a Supreme Court. -- -- would you what Madonna's sitting on a jury judging you. And they would you vote with. Judge I don't know she would be one of my peers. So I don't know this is a good thing or bad things. Have you ever been on jury duty -- talk about them this year by I'd love to hear your experience of. Being on injury number seven on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. New study from health researchers at the University of Copenhagen shows that stress for relationships may increase the risk of death. I am so glad they did this study I never would've made the connection. A stressful relationship. Problems -- relationship. And a risk of death. And then if you don't have the risk of -- sometimes you wish you were dead. They had studied a number of of couples and they determined that conflicts were associated with a higher mortality rates. Brisk. A regardless of who was the source of the conflict when it was parents who were. Our kids her or Parker. Worries -- demands. Were also associated with the mortality risk about one out of every ten participants. In the study. Said that their Parker or children were always or often. A source of demands and Maurice. One out of ten. That that that blows a hole study for me right here because I would again be a lot more than one in -- would think that your departure or their children. Are always or often a source of demand and worries. -- outlook and accused of these people -- 6% said that they always were often experienced. Conflicts. With other members of their families 2% reported they always are often had conflicts with friends. Sounds like things -- Rather -- ascetic in Copenhagen. A 6% of the participants had a frequent arguments with their partners are children 2% with other relatives and only 1%. With friends and neighbors but really it it sounds like people are are pretty much getting -- according to this university of companies study. Number six on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. US Supreme Court throughout the death penalty for Freddie Lee hall. Because the state of thought of Florida. Did dots I'm correctly determined halls competence. Days declared -- Supreme Court ruled Florida's method for determining his competence unconstitutional. And this is have a really sad case edited the vote was close it was a Supreme Court voted five to four a justice Anthony Kennedy gave the a majority opinion. And he ruled that if Freddie Lee hall death row inmate in Florida. Should have another opportunity. To argue that he should -- be executed. Now afforded declared that he was mentally disabled. In 1992. But later found. But he was competent. After he scored a 71 on the IQ test. That is the minimum requirement for competency. Under Florida law. 71 it's really blow. And what I don't like about this is the idea that. You can BM. A person who's not really Smart you don't have to have an IQ. To be a law abiding citizen. That -- not to commit. Laws I mean it's not knows not to commit crimes especially murder. So the US Supreme Court forget the death throes if you listed a shorter regular basis you know I'm I'm very ambivalent about the the death penalty. And it cases like this I could see with the death penalty would not be appropriate for for illegal. On and may be in part because it's and his spirit and his low IQ he should be punished I don't know that he should be. And executed -- you know it's always realize that a person doesn't have to be Smart. To be -- held accountable for their actions. Never five on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. Why even when. Who was in this so long standing dispute with the federal government over he is -- his grazing property in federal land. He was his cattle were gracing free on the land for years and he owes the government I think a million dollars. Well -- and Bundy has announced that he has left. The Republican Party. And that now he and his wife Carol are registered with the independent American party. But he said well I haven't got much good out of the Democrats or the Republicans so I decided to try a new way. I don't know at the Republican Party got much out of him remember this is the guy that did all a lot of people. Sean Hannity and may be Glenn Beck I'm not sure I know Sean Hannity a lot of Republican appointments. And -- a Republican personalities. A stood up for this guy in his battle with the federal government it was a federal government's but the government in general. On they stood up for him and then they totally denounced him. After. They heard about him saying just really ugly stupid ignorant racist things so. I don't know Clinton bunny announcing that he's leaving the Republican Party. I kind of see this is good news for the Republican Party. Because that's the kind of fringe person. Who is this kind of person makes noise during a campaign it hurts the image of the Republican Party and these -- people like -- in Davis. I mean -- Clive and on Clinton -- these people have a tendency. To make a lot of notes. Number four on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. Over the Memorial Day weekend. -- -- people were shot. In New Orleans. Now they all didn't die for their -- The twenty people were shot eight of -- eight of the victims were shot in the same incident. It was just fifteen year old male was killed. Since seven others were injured. By gunfire. Twenty people shot so again let's remember the difference between being injured and being killed can be a matter of inches. It depending on exactly where the ball -- So all Tony could could very easily have been killed. So what do we do about this. This is this is embarrassing. Now it's not affecting the tourist. It's affecting. Citizens of New Orleans. In their own neighborhood it's expecting them. This is the people running downtown in attacking tourist. This people attacking. Themselves -- -- neighborhoods and again you know to about fifteen year old dead and and so often we hear about teenagers. With guns. But over the Memorial Day weekend twenty people shot. In New Orleans. What do we do about it. Number three at tonight's list of the top rated eight. Well -- defense attorney Robert Jacobs has an idea about what we might do about it he says that juvenile rehabilitation does not work. And their parents. And guardians. Should be held accountable for their children's actions. Here's a WW a pretty general opinion poll tonight should parents speak criminally responsible. For the shooting crimes. Of their juvenile children and think about it. -- thirteen fourteen year old it's a gun kill somebody. Should the parents be arrested. It is your opinion like going to our web site WWL dot com we're gonna tractor pull through out our show tonight a lot of people Rory passion about this. If you listen they showed a regular basis you know that I think parents should be held accountable. That may be one of the only ways. That we can start to curb. This insane. Violence and the lack of respect for life. So I totally agree parents should be held accountable but there are people who say what am I to do it's not my fault it's my kids' fault it's the people like it hangs out with. I understand it it's the probable society it's not my fault I try. Unfortunately a lot of people do probably try. And they don't win the battle. Their -- wins. But I agree with defense attorney Robert Jenkins probably leaves them with a tummy -- this morning. -- as a juvenile rehabilitation does it work and parents and guardians should be held accountable for their children's actions. Now we're talking about criminal actions. Again here's -- every W a pretty general opinion poll tonight also talk about this throughout the show should parents be criminally responsible.

It happened Friday night in Santa Barbara California. -- Roger 22 years old murders six people Friday night before killing himself. There were warnings. That Kelly Roger was not mentally stable. He posted video on YouTube. There was essentially a manifesto. Describing. Why he was going on killing spree. Basically he was upset with women. Here's part of what he said he said for the last eight years of my life. Ever since I hit puberty. I have been forced to endure an existence of loneliness. Rejection. And unfulfilled desires. All because girls have never been attracted to me. Girls gave their affection. And sex and love two other men but never to me. I am Tony to -- a version. I have never been kissed. I've never even kissed a girl. I had been through college for two and a half years. More than that actually and I am still a virgin. It has been very. Torturous. There and and he goes off. I can remember. At least until I was eighteen. -- get attention. I was rejected. I deal with loneliness and on top of lonely site had to deal with. A very severe case of obsessive compulsive disorder at a time when win then the medical and mental health community they don't know anything about that. So nobody knew what was wrong with me I knew something was wrong with me. So those are horrible horribly high -- in in many ways I fit the profile. Of somebody that would go and and and and kill people it in a man shooting. I was a loner. -- not popular. So I think we're too quick to. To say well oh well that's that's why he did -- Everybody who's a loner everybody was quiet everybody who's who's -- these are these are all potential. Bowden mass killers. And that's not true. Rejected by girls. Old so. I mean I was. Maybe you were to. Is this an excuse. For what happened Friday night. And I'm sure you've heard a lot about this on the news read a lot about it's -- -- all over the news because this is another one of those cases where. There were signs. There were definite signs. But. Nobody. Nobody came forward and took action. Before something happened. And I don't know for ever gonna get to a point as a society where we take action before something happens.

Cruel or white. Do you blame. And the father of one of the victims. Blamed the idiots. In congress. Now. Nobody can be upset with a grieving father for just reaching out and granting anything. To try to explains his son's tragic death. And he's right the they are idiots in congress. But I don't think. The idiots in congress are to blame for what happened. Santa Barbara California.

I'm sure it was not selected because I'm an attorney etc. I've seen that. Seems that some of the most educated people in our city are not allowed to be on a jury because of the general belief. That we would have undue influence over other jury members. If that's true. That is really. Scary. Here's a -- -- it's pitiful shame. We are seeing a whole generation wiping themselves out I think mr. Jenkins is right try something new I'm responsible for my children's actions. If you care for them step up get control hard love. And here's attacks politicians and lawyers should be held accountable due to the laws that stopped Paris from disciplining our kids. There's no law that says you can't discipline your kids. It is not against the law to spank your children. It is against the law to beat your tickets. And if you don't know the difference between spanking and beating and you shouldn't be apparent. But this is this is a widely held belief. That you cannot discipline your kid's dad is. Not true. And there are other ways to discipline -- kids other than spanking your kids and I hope that is apparent your intelligent enough to figure out those other ways those other things that you can't do other than spanking your kids. It is legal the Specter kids. I James you're on Cisco -- and every -- you well. You know and so. -- Totally disagree with you but the Olympic bewitched is -- If it's. Got debris.

And can't just -- their kids out on the sweeter just can't can't just let their kids ago. From a very early age and they don't pay attention to their case maybe this would try to turn things around. Well that's so true in support of that that -- accountable. To a certain degree you know. But not currently accountable.

Held accountable when it. We've been thought about it and it they're happy unassuming. Well first though. Because I don't think you're right the partisan criminally. Because of the war on competed. And it -- It -- lead but a new way he stated earlier this. Reasonably well and it is an alternate so. That you could do that film today of course in this debate -- the situation. Well it's it's it's true and they're not all in that situation and for those who were in that situation who are doing their job as parents that might actually make the situation worse. Right and what do you don't want. They they don't you know for better restricted -- did commit a crime did not -- well what you speak of them. It would it would only be fair. To figure out proportionally. What they would lose. Compared to somebody who would you lose a portion of of their benefits. From the government and a percentage wise proportionately taken away from from those storage. Right and you will people be in the light that well but I would be earned money but it used to. You can't use that again that somebody who has been it is is that it. Jeffrey what we what we're discovering is this is a very very complicated issue. But it's getting worse and it's not something that has always been around it's getting worse today more and more parents are having kids and not raising. Well I mean I think it -- story. I -- do I -- not great -- would have went and did the family they're they're by. Mainstream it. All of that we have -- -- And nothing was done -- of Russia and everything like -- -- I showed you think. K what can they -- honest about the if you -- he. Could -- where it is apparent you really do. But isn't there a point Geoffrey where if you if you have a child. And you're having trouble taking care of one child is there a point where that's the only when you have. -- well but it didn't work of more of a perfect world because -- that these these -- at the result of casual animal list XX. -- Not -- or not respect not love making but just. Just raw. Animal sex and we we can't wait we can't act like animals. But it Jeffrey our conversation once again just points out how complicated this this issue. Would agree. I mean you have. If you go to get rid of -- people -- you retreat outward of course people -- -- you know like totally one group of people here says do you know. I totally agree Jeffrey and I'm glad to -- the children's actual listing to Dirita -- night. Here's a Texan reads and now I'm not trying to be flippant or crass but really this is about -- Roger.

Can't have sex goes out and kills people I'm 28 years old graduated from an Ivy League university. Never have been -- dates nor had a boyfriend. And I'm not going out. And butcher any innocent people because I'm lonely. Everyone always feels like they need to point fingers after the fact when they had the chance to do something before. So true so many signs. It's almost embarrassing. How people were so quick to say well what about that we're okay what are our publicist what are some of those things are going on somebody's life right now. Are you paying attention to to the point where you could stop something from happening by being pro active rather than waiting for something to happen well we saw that coming. OTC coming to whichever responsibility to -- some. This is dispute -- if you're hold more of your calls it architects are coming up.

Don't live that way. From New Orleans Jason -- on WWL. Eight out of that point -- at that point. But. Buick and it could get worse and worse -- note that it's in the rain we'll let -- -- -- certainly maybe years. It's the same -- in the they've cracked. We don't have a cult.
