With the that the traveling walls for those who died in Vietnam. Scooted for Garland for coming right back -- W well good morning I'm studio fort -- it's -- Tony and it's very nice Monday morning a few showers already developing around the area.

I -- 310 -- you might have been in that cell yesterday it was unbelievable -- -- I saw something was just amazing. I saw a woman. Who had a flashing lights out she's in SUV. She's in the middle. Driving about fifty miles an hour. She's got her for her hazard lights. She's moving course that's illegal. You'd you're not supposed to flashing lights on publisher of vehicle is stopped or is a severe. -- stooped to the flow of traffic this woman was not. And I think about people who have this mentality to put their flashing lights on. Oh it's raining or Mike -- got to flashing -- what does everybody put their flashlights. I mean it would be -- it. In and the problem is his species of habit of flashing lights. You assume that year they're stopped. You could come up on somebody and slammed your breaks on picking that they are stopped. And and cause a chain reaction accident. So don't do -- obviously this woman doesn't listen to Visio. I thought everybody did but obviously she -- but wait this -- this isn't even the best part.

When I think about two. How we do things in America we do. We do commemorate in spite by celebrating. Sometimes with parties. Was it wrong to have a cocktail party at the the national September 11 memorial museum. Now let's remember that there are bodies still buried here some people thought it was very disrespectful. In an op Ed article on foxnews.com. Titled commercializing the sacred site of the 9/11. Is shameful. And as harsh criticism of having a cocktail party where people are drinking and lasting. Basically. On a great site. But is that what we do and America is that not. As disrespectful as it might seem it is okay dancing on a great site may be that sounds really disrespectful but is that what we do and America. We celebrate things. The World War II museum they have parties they have weddings there have been to a wedding there -- great facility for a wedding or party. But that's a very solemn place when you think about what happened during World War II. Is it wrong to have a party.

Here's a text that reads it is it museum not a -- -- gift shop is appropriate which you celebrate the lives of those who lost. It was a tragedy. But Americans. Live in a constant state. Of mourning. And I think in the context of America. I think the way we treat things. I think it's OK to have a cocktail party. At the grand opening of the 9/11 museum. Because I can't imagine anybody that cocktail party would have forgotten. What happened. And is there anything wrong with celebrating the opening. Of this. Magnificent. Monument. To who we are as a country. We built it right back. Where they tore it down they tried to hurt us and we built it right back in nesting spot. And with respect for those who lost their lives. I don't think there's anything wrong with celebrating that moment. If you -- to join -- -- the comet are numbers 2601870. Toll free 8668890. A seventy. To -- numbers 877 he gets a text -- they should make all cars with a sensor that automatically turns your lights on. When you put on your wipers. Okay well you know that's fine on a lot of cars at the -- -- automatically. Going automatically and my -- it's an older car. But again. We're compensating for stupidity. What you can't do it yourself how many generations in the past live. They didn't have these kind of laws are -- people use common sense in the past. What happened a common sense. I'm scoot him for Garland. Ever be back on WWL. You know -- this big rainstorm I was in yesterday it turned out to be a really nice afternoon effect -- and a beautiful drive back from home yesterday afternoon after my visit down there. The national 9/11 memorial museum opened to the public less than two weeks ago and to celebrate the grand opening of the museum there was a big cocktail party. And also there's and mr. Addiction and there have been some complaints about this. A volunteer -- grounds here early and advocate for 9/11 first responders said. To have a festive occasion on human remains is repulsive and repugnant and there are steel. -- still bodies at ground zero. On the 9/11 museum does have its this gift shop with countless items that -- defeated -- items for your -- is there anything wrong with that. Isn't this the way we commemorate things in America. As long as we still respect the dead and still. Still respect what happened and don't forget what happened. I'm not sure that there's anything wrong with with commemorating. The building of this would really is in a lot of ways of monument. In an op Ed piece at foxnews.com titled commercializing. A sacred site of 9/11 is shameful. And his harsh criticism in this op Ed piece of foxnews.com with cocktail party where people were drinking and laughing on what is basically a great. So we've been talking about whether or not it's wrong to hold parties and still T shirts and teachings of the gift shop at the site of the terrorist attack on America American Idol of or is that the way we commemorate things in America. Here's an update on our WWL pretty -- opinion poll this morning when he opened the national night eleven memorial museum the cocktail party and give store was that appropriate or just plain wrong. 35% say it's appropriate 65%. So it's just. Plain wrong somebody called -- our studio producer mark and are just a moment ago is said to tell scooted. We have a party on agreed sites every Sunday during football season. The superdome is built on the cemetery. And I I've heard you know whatever the saints have had a really bad bad streak. Before the saints won the Super Bowl they were people who were saying well of course it's the coerced the team's curse because the Mercedes-Benz superdome is built. On -- cemetery. By the much of this city's probably built on on a cemetery when you think about all those who died. Who were actually. Helping to build our city here is a -- -- Cisco -- -- -- to be seen as a gift shop indeed it does in in a very nice. I hear is attacks on Pearl Harbor sells all kinds of stuff it helps support the memorial. Here's a Texas Cisco at the police officer that called was incorrect according to Louisiana State driving test study guide. On a three lane highway the right lane is for entering and exiting traffic. The middle lane is fourth through traffic. And the left lane is for passing entering or exiting left lane ramps. Which should be outlawed. In my opinion. Here is a text there we altered driver's I don't one time remember that teacher telling us about. The -- emergency lights you guys don't issue flashing lights if you get involved in heavy rain it's against the law I'm student for Garland and two will be back after the news.
