BOB MITCHELL’s in for SCOOT with some great topics: Former New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin asked for letters of support from friends and family to receive a lighter sentence. The court also received a plea from his grandson that included a crayon drawing of the former mayor and him. Is this a low move, getting his grandson involved, or you do whatever it takes to stay out of jail? Pope Francis took on one of Italy's most dangerous organized crime groups, calling it an example of "the adoration of evil" and saying Mafiosi "are excommunicated.” So what are your favorite crime movies or TV shows? Our WWL/Paretti opinion poll: If the next United States World Cup soccer game was in the Mercedes Benz Superdome, would you attend? Different regions of Sweden are planning to test the impact of shorter hours on productivity. One group of government workers will work 6-hours a day; another will work the 8. Do you think companies would get more done with a 6 hour work day? How many hours do you currently work a week?
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?

I think it's the kind of thing that if you were to say well look if you want to worked a six hour workday here is what we have to accomplish and and you did it that way. But I don't think just cutting it from eight to six would work but if if people don't understand that they've that they've got to produce.

So you understand -- you know just. -- top network or and so we thought about it some more important to object to United States which more and sorted out -- whatever -- -- and would end of the day. And back and the guy really runs and eight years in elected how much questions like that slope. Well let's start I started delivering milk around 4 o'clock in the morning and that I would finish with the -- some time.

If your work week you work day was cut from eight to six hours. And I wanna hear from you guys and ladies who have done some in usual jobs in the past. Go back to when you were a kid a -- for unusual jobs alone in the heart Richard overworked. Maybe the most satisfying. You have a 42601. Late seventy. 866889. A late seventy and the Pope. Has finally come off on record and saying. If you're a member of the mafia you were excommunicated. Two of the church that long to come up with that ruling -- -- ought to be fun tonight to talk about it may be familiar favorite crime movies your favorite mom movie's. Or TV shows I'm Bob Mitchell interest -- the poll numbers 26 year old -- seventy. 866 Andy and I know it's seventy. Coming right back on WWL. And it has made the real Robert Mitchell filling in for us due to -- it in the dip to a couple real quick text messages and out of -- right to the phones. Above the moments neat work longer hours and our parents but we do work as hard as they did. I learn from -- dead. To work hard long hours of -- after vacation. We're looking for either the most than usual the hardest or the most satisfying job via Brad here's one a train elephants and Campbell's. At -- zoo lose a loved it. Until I saw video of -- near Libyan killed by the African elephant. -- it's always Eloise does. That's on the usual training elephants in Campbell's. At the zoo to a six year old age 7866. And -- 9087 let's go to Tony and gently -- Tony. Tony you there. -- not here. Let's go to Bob bomber how are you there. -- or robbery or do about it. -- our -- and -- and another short and I didn't church all the HL on paper but stick. OK well I'll I'll fill you in a right. What's going on in Sweden they're they're trying to cities. If they've reduced the workday from eight hours to six hours if people double dip. More or less producer they have there in two groups have won one group of workers with working six or another group of working eight hours at the intimacy. If working six hours of people law. Work harder. And if if if if if there is if if there's less that time and the words the thought is that if you work less -- they help their. I'm I'm I'm I'm not sure about that. Fold that that's what that's about to my question is do you think companies would get more done with a six -- workplace. And then -- extended that. And I wanna know. Well what's the hardest Cuba overworked which the most satisfying job the most unusual job -- -- And I'm talking to myself because we got disconnected but well. Tony you're there. Right you're do you mind. Out. About it it. What the -- you're okay all right that Atmel. It to call eight. You know our training is yes good movie that's -- Denzel right. And no drug addict and that I. Liked it. He played a good job and and at that scene when. When that they had -- in the it inside the apartment in inside. It in -- -- well man. And -- that the -- one. I'll speak -- there. Now I tell you I tell you know the top movie my goodness led to a pulp fiction. When they when they had the guy in the hang in from the show our with the chainsaw. Dated -- itself. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Almost are finished -- don't know that. Green. No the NC up more -- -- agree. It would. It would -- can't -- the K okay so you -- Tony. It's the hardest job -- worked. Where and what's that in the truck and -- a company owns. Tom how many hours a day you have to -- -- in grade because -- -- it at -- figure with regard to -- -- you guys. I only a bullet in their -- now -- That's a lot thank you for calling -- go to. Back to Bob Bob I was talking to myself for a while there. -- -- -- -- And now no longer on the charter will be to get -- despairing yet are great yeah it's 000. Well that's -- pretty. I would have to imagine that the only way that would work you have to say. This is what has to be done today and if you can do it in six hours you go home I would think that's the only way because if if you cut if you just cut the workday down to six hours. And you didn't get all you worked -- you would have to hire more people although that might help implement that would just send that the company's expenses up so I don't think they would do that. A list or did call an earlier. If you can get people to do eight dollars -- worked in six hours it could help the economy because then. People who. Need to work two jobs would be easier to work two jobs if you had to six hours a day jobs. And bobbled. Bob needs to get a new -- -- let's go to. Oh are you Kevin. You Kevin the most than usual hardest the most satisfying job you ever. I actually work. That don't scoot group a few weeks throughout all of them on the military code and the automobile marine -- saying -- that we're. Well the com source driver and correct road outside the wire trying to figure below. That doesn't electable much fun. -- -- -- -- -- That the that the. The that was -- you're in at number. We're and that. Did you give -- that. Did you have people shooting at -- stuff like that. There during our PG ghetto boy that he wrote well -- -- -- -- in the middle. Donald or what you. Their daughter does that put out there or you're -- that Poland before. -- no big old -- trailer yeah. And around it all you have truck in the -- you know you know it is actually. What do you think's going on about what's going. Rock right now. Actually at. Home. A lot of people love that lives -- -- -- commitment and that the government loses. -- -- that they work their own problems. Well what left -- uninteresting. And I almost by the hypocritical. Where our government is telling the Shiites and the Sunnis they have to work together and I've I've made this point before. Yet in our government. The Republicans than Democrats don't work together and they say you know you guys need to work together on a real capital of the violence going on our country. But it it just comes up to me a little hypocritical some time. Well the man -- -- -- warehouse operations and -- thing you know nothing that -- You know. More people were considering whether conservative Democrat and it's only hear about that work -- government give them. We can pick of the country. Let you know the -- want to order. A word or. And I'll talk to Hillary you are electrocuted you keep a divider. You know -- you know you know you are you or a 100% correct it is exactly the way I feel I had someone call in the other night. And they were just. Greek and Obama up and everything in the world what's wrong with this country and every probably have in the world is the president's fault and not told the most of -- favor. As a get a pen and circled this date on the calendar is -- why should because three years from now. No matter who was the president no matter what we have a democratic or Republican president this country Willis will be in the sewer. And I'm telling you three years in advance because the problem we have it's not what the president is the fact that we have Republicans and Democrats who refuse to work together they care about one thing and one thing only the power their company. I think -- -- -- -- sort of thing that the bush or. And what you Coco mean Obama gives you go these insurance company and and -- -- -- back when. Clinton was feel what it was definitely. -- have an -- -- call out doctor -- Beijing you know -- Bill Clinton eighties. But -- -- and have them -- sort of debate about your take on. Hannity and what are you not want a -- -- let them but -- gore. I'm what did Kevin record like you got a favorite mob movies. Allow. Noted that you don't like you know like the -- not all of the mob movies a lot of regret not. Corporate. We know about the godfather. -- member of me and my goodness gracious Kevin thank you for phoning in okay. Thank you we go to my buddy Joseph in Chicago -- -- you Joseph. And hang it in there. You had some unusual jobs in your time. A lot of mutual. Yeah. The the twelve years old actually it ordered north polar rush. I opt out. Not a well my goodness. How how exciting is that did you sell many brochures. -- -- I don't know they'll -- indoors or -- let it all around.

But -- -- up a so I'm sure you worked three times harder than an. Hour. Joseph we're also talked about -- a -- blow that the Pope. Saturday. Said that if you or a member of the mafia. You were no crucially excommunicated from the Catholic Church so the mob. I mean I don't know why it took the church all this time the come up with the audience and we need to. An ex communicate the monster but he says the -- also there's excommunicated from Leo and Catholic church of my first thought was moved let's let's let's talk -- -- favorite -- crime movie she you have any.

It's to test the the work week to see whether or not. People would do more work done working. Six hours of the post eight and the fact that they would be working less that.

Well I thought that and after scene in the movie the last two times but horse in the stable had some white on its head. But the horse in the -- did not so I think. After watching the movie probably twenty times now I think that now that they put a different horse's head in there to scare him. To make him think that if he didn't take and give the god apart that the we're gonna cut the other horses -- off if you watch it again. Noticed the markings on the horse in the stable and CPC the same horse mark in the bed okay. Thank you thank you -- all right 260 -- 78668. At 90870.
