This weekend was the 25th anniversary of “Seinfeld!” What is your favorite word or phrase from the hit TV show? A 3-year-old boy is dead after he left his house and was trapped in the hot family car. According to the grandfather, the mother was watching TV with him on the sofa – he got out and got trapped in the car. He died 4 days later. Is anybody at fault, or is this an unfortunate incident? The Essence Fest crowd in New Orleans over the 4th of July weekend was a well-dressed, well-behaved crowd that was polite, spent a lot of money and came to the city to have fun. So, why do so many people say they are staying away from downtown and the French Quarter when Essence Fest is going on? Is this another example of stereotypes being wrong? Update on the Georgia father who left his 22-month-old son to die in his sweltering hot SUV: Police say the stench of a dead body filled the SUV, yet the father drove several blocks before realizing his son was dead in his car seat. The baby’s mother may soon be named as a suspect and this could become a death penalty case. Did your opinion of this man or this couple change since the story 1st broke?
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?

Here's a text that read said did you know that there was an episode a sign filled called. The big salad where Bobby Hebert was talked about for a minute. About his unique blessing yes I I didn't remember which episode it was part of but I do remember that did Bobby there was mention because he.

Did the feeding frenzy. It often results from these kinds of things. On Sara Taylor announced when she was running for vice president on the John McCain ticket. And her her daughter her personally think are nameless. Where it was pregnant so this does happen. And yet sometimes when I hear. Republican candidates talk sometimes not all of them but sometimes I get the impression that they think that this is something that. Is -- not something that they're party actually does that this is something that liberals do this is something is with people with low moral values -- -- I would think that bill Cassidy and and his daughter I would I would assume that they believe they have strong moral character and this is just something that happened. Is something serious had happened that does that happen because and this is why I think it's important talk about birth control. Birth control.

After letting our -- know that two out of the six meals they brought to our table. We're wrong. And just spun out from there least to say it did not leave a positive impression. On my relatives. Who were not only visiting New Orleans but America. For the first time. That can happen. Before we get back to this conversation. I wish. I wish so. Stolen -- by the consistently. Terrible servers. Be consistently. Apathetic employees that I ran into time after time after time. At Kmart in Metairie others. And. Just it was terrible. I -- just total apathy.

Throughout the store including the person that like I HI checked out. Again I don't know that anything to do with me mentioning earlier but I did one you know not just mention the negative but also mention the positive. And again it would be easy for reading going to are you at this place is terrible news service -- That skit that gets people excited that gets people calling people are less likely to call -- say something good it.

And a child cruelty charges and the death penalty may be applied to this case that the charges may be change and also the baby's mother may soon be named as a suspect. But according to police reports the baby's mother. One of the things that she said first to her husband for so she did not even asked. About her child did necessary to detest anything about a child to -- -- her husband. One of the things according to police that she said one of the first and she said was. Did you say too much or something. To that effect. And then. Also there's another story about a three year old boy whose dad. Died in hospital in North Carolina. He was on the sofa apparently watching television when his mother. He got up and left the house followed the family dog into the family car got trapped in the car. He was suffering.

Because we all know what a sacrifice it is to take your shoes off and put them in the back of the car. So all I guess what I said was. Reprehensible. And that we should look at a woman who takes your shoes off to remind her she's got her kids in the backseat of the car. We should look at that such an act of love for her kids. Shame on me.
