The last day of the month. I didn't even realize that -- is knew it was Monday is -- well you know I can we do this right. Yeah ten minutes after 5 AM at the early edition of WWL first news it's June it's the thirtieth 2014. And as -- Monday -- it's Monday. It where all this come populated heavily back to work after and during the week and man it's a strange coming -- and although they heat -- did you not feel that this morning my god if I went. Tropical jungle I don't think I'd be back in for the rain to come back at any point but I forgot how hot Baghdad and then Amanda memories are short thing that. Thank goodness -- how we start out the morning and think what it says so only so well 90% humidity 78 -- it feels like the eighties the dew point 75. Okay. Yeah. That heat index in the eighties it'll be well and tripled that yeah yeah I mean I was getting into the car -- I hosts this morning. My god in the middle of the night. You know we we go through this every year. And gas Regis. Conveniently forget widely. -- all of July. August and to September feel like -- round. Yes we do for whatever reason I -- he you block out bad memories -- past yeah that traumatic things you just cannot forget about you know we talked about it during the year like now we know we know and all that. But it's not till it's rarely hear that you appreciate you. Roberts a market of -- well what everyone's talking about over the weekend was of. Course what happened on urban street last Saturday night and Sunday morning as two men do. Had a disagreement. As investigators but it. Started shooting at each other. And by the time it was over nine people were wounded two of them critically burned and. News did spread to stomachs to some extent across the country against a national news story. It did happen on Sunday morning which is a historically very low consumption time for news. But I. I think there's an interest in debate to be to be had about how much this may or may not impact. Tourism I have a feeling every hotel room in the city of New Orleans is still going to be booked for fourth of July weekend yeah out. I mean I don't think you're -- while widespread massive cancellations of people who say you know what. I was gonna go to essence fest but now known not known I gotta gotta go forth on the river. But now I'm not. And if we recall the same thing are very similar thing happened on Halloween. Shooting on murder mystery the same thing or very similar thing happened on Marty been there a shooting on Bergen street. Now here we have the weekend before the fourth of July in what happens. Are shooting. On Bourbon Street at 2:45 AM in the 700 block is which is -- in this section suburban and Orleans. And what impact will this have. On the psyche of the city. Psyche of those people who we're gonna come visit New Orleans. I -- it very interesting the reaction of one tourist on WW LTV last night. It's comic side I got that that's -- -- name. They're really -- night. -- act in a row on the home yet. Nine people shot -- -- night. Now was 2:45 AM. And so for those people still out apparel and there is still big crowds on -- all of view bad nearly 3 o'clock on Sunday morning after a wild Saturday night that turns to gunfire but it. Yeah Hank Aaron Rowand then. And I don't know that reaction destruct. Well yeah for the two people critically wounded it's ruined. Their lives. To -- them. Now fighting for. In in the hospital. And then these. People. Deal with the police chief says yeah I -- -- -- -- yacht holds back. Yeah people is he rarely and I don't know what have authority was gonna use idea Baghdad's. Baghdad and I don't know if that was intentional now. I mean. I don't know kennel language of police chief normally uses it to I was upset. I again I wouldn't have blamed him for maybe -- and one on them but you know. They get a hundred dispute apparently. And don't care a damn about anybody around and just sprayed the place here on this. Many publishers. And there's -- but people -- know. People come and outside in the Holland isn't round -- a lot of respect for their own lives let alone anyone else out. And I have I think I share with you before that I talked to someone who works in the Orleans parish prison in depth about. The people that come into prison. And he said the Easter people who expect. To die before they turn -- They lived their lives expecting to Don. Many of them actually put up money often from illegal sources. For their mothers to bury them because they don't want their moms that have to pay for. So they set aside burial out put in there eighteen. Eighteen page for bird -- for the few because they don't expect to live to 25. Because as the mayors have pointed out. Between 1980 and 2012. 660000. Young black men died on the streets of America. 660000. More than died in all the wars in the last century and more Americans. -- died in all the wars.
