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?

Good evening welcome to our show on this Tuesday night's among other things tonight to talk about Pink Floyd getting back together. To do would do well. Some this materials can be from previous recording sessions the Pink Floyd will be releasing new album coming up in October. Is deployed tonight he -- about Pink Floyd getting next -- for this new album you can read it this year with the others. It's on our website -- advocate will not count. I have to admit I was that a huge Pink Floyd fan what when I was growing up there's a band from the sixties and seventies. And is there a young disc jockey to music radio here in the world and so remember playing severely. But it -- -- the seventies always respected him but I was an acute conflicting. But to those who are big people fans this is really great. But when I heard what he -- them back together to do is do well. -- -- -- -- In October I couldn't help but think of the other things that we would love to see come back together so we'll be talking about that tonight in our top -- and eight. It's time for tonight's top later date here -- the top three things we'd like you know which we begin our show tonight on WWL. Number eight. It's mosquito season you probably didn't need me to tell you that I. It was a -- and I'm dating lives in in just hands and you -- -- but -- her house at nights on the weekends. The mosquitoes are. Horrendous I just it's just it's amazing how many mosquitoes there -- in certain areas of of of this general. Area and and generally speaking there -- no mosquitoes downtown. And I guess it's that there's dolby stagnant water or were there are desperate to win I don't know it dispute is don't hang out downtown. But here a couple of interesting things and I found out about mosquitoes and so you might learned this just gets you to know that -- it's biting you just a little better. Of the mosquito species that do bite humans and they all don't bite humans for all of the species that bite humans. Only the female mosquitoes -- And a female mosquitoes are attracted to the blind. For the protein to aid there egg production. So it's nice to know. That does little suckers are getting are blinded because they need to produce eggs so they can produce more mosquitoes. To buy more of us. Research also shows that female mosquitoes prefer men. Over women. And adults. Over children. And it is true it's not just a myth but it is true that pregnant women are more attractive to mosquitoes. Because they give off more heat. And carbon dioxide. I just thought you needed to know that some think about all of that the next time a mosquito likely get really is it's it's part of the it -- part of the whole mosquito animal kingdom. They bite us. They suck the blood it produces eggs and and they they bite us again and I'm sure you have the same memories that I do. When I wish I'd be a teenager and yeah dating candidate be parked at the Lakefront. There'd be unity quiet and he'd be making out or maybe to be a little music playing as a president usually quite quiet. And you'd hear the buzz of that mosquitoes. Mean Alison you're -- else to make any real noise so you'd hear the device is just the out of the mosquito. In a car and then it would land and did you feel it biting you or I remember growing up without air conditioning. And in the room I'm going to sleep at night we hear this mosquito. -- -- And he lifted its recognition to -- Atlantic. Just some thoughts about mosquitoes as we continue to work her way through this mosquito season number seven on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. Obama administration labor secretary Thomas -- says. When members of congress say -- unemployed Americans are not trying hard enough to find jobs he says I want to punch. I know liberals punch people. You -- a liberal would really punch some. He kind of smiled and the reporters laughed when he said it but he said. The thing that they say that angers me most is win is what politicians say that. There are suggesting that unemployed people are unemployed by choice and they're just sitting around eating bon -- And you and I both know that that's not true but I wanted to denounce that. Violent gesture. From a member of the Obama administration going to punch members of congress who. Don't give respect to the unemployed number six on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. Such -- three suspects in the shooting in Slidell. Say they became very angry when a man pumping gas gave them a dirty look. The man was shot he's in serious condition. Slidell police say that on the night of July 5 just after midnight. Shots were fired at a gas station witnesses say they saw two men approach a man who was pumping gas. Shots were fired apparently there was an argument that preceded the shots being fired. The victim is set at 43 year old he's in serious condition but is expected to survive. The victim told police and is pumping gas and exchange looks with two people that he did know. The two -- then left that immediate area. And returned later with a gun. And fired several shots hitting him once played a police arrested a 24 year old a 23 year old and a 25 year old. The suspects have been cooperating with police who have been questioning them they admitted that they became very angry. Win. The victim gave them a dirty look at the gas station. What is book with a second degree attempted murder kept his second degree murder. And the other two or both are charged with principle of attempted second degree -- all suspects are currently being held in jail. In -- will ultimately be transported to the saint Tammany parish. Sale now. You know we often talk about how ridiculous. Some of these shootings or. And the ridiculous things that that lead two different shootings but this is among the -- the dumbest things secure and here. I mean it just goes to show you how how volatile. The violent streak is an insult people and how close to the surface that is where somebody gives somebody a dirty look. Or are addicted to like -- later meaning get I don't know -- I don't know what are dirty -- is -- get some looks at June. He feel like they're judging you -- or something but it but here's what amazes me about the story. Okay somebody gives him a dirty look they didn't like that. They left wing got a gun in the process they didn't cool off they cooled down their tempers didn't com. And they that they went back and shot the guy. Again I think this just tells us an awful lot about how. How close to the surface. Anger issues. -- so many people. Number five on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. President Obama will fly to Dallas Texas to address the growing crisis. Some children being sent to America. For a better life Texas governor Rick Perry suggest. That President Obama is somehow involved in the plan to send children to the United States. And I don't know whether this is says -- conspiracy theory but some people think that. -- the more. Hispanics succumbing to this country that means more voters for the Democratic Party. So. Obama is trying to flood the market with potential. Voters for the Democratic Party I don't police that but that's what some people believe. A Perry has also refused to meet with the president on the tarmac of the airport tomorrow to shake his hand he says he will meet with the president and have a meaningful conversation in private. But the White House extended an opportunity for Perry to meet the president on the tarmac at the airport in Dallas. I shake his hand and then I guess they would talk after that -- declined to sit I have to believe that. When you don't do anything to respond -- either inept. Or there are some ulterior motive. Which your functioning from. And he said that this week on on ABC's this week and Sunday morning appears saying that the Obama administration has some incentive to bring all these people. -- into the country we're gonna talk about this more on the show tomorrow. And to talk about what President Obama says about. Missed this human crisis I mean it's really sad you know because we we wanna say hey note you know you have to come to this country legally. Attended these kids -- these. I mean there's there's got to be human part of you that feels badly for these children. Mean did you move when you were a kid in orders like to go to when his school. It was like to go to a new neighborhood it was dramatic sometimes to move from one city to another city. And and learn about new things into people mention again kid many of them without their parents. Being sent to the United States. And their parents just hope they get -- hoping that they have a better life there. They're fleeing -- much of the year that the drug violence. That is so prominent in Honduras and some Central American countries. So on a human level it's it's really sad but. You know we just can't take care of everybody who wants him to come to this country I don't know what the answer -- I I hope President Obama has some. Good answers tomorrow we'll talk about that on the -- show torn right here and a bit of -- Number four on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. Washington State has become the second -- to open retail stores that's. -- marijuana for recreational use. The state of Colorado was the first state to do so. And Colorado has already generated 24 million dollars in marijuana revenue so far this year. This is the seventh month of the year 44 million dollars in their -- revenue. And Washington State is project projecting a hundred in nineteen million dollars in revenue from pot. Over the next four years. Now many states like Louisiana need money so should we legalize pot. Apparently one thing that they're concerned about in in Washington is it that applies to run out they don't know if they're gonna have enough. Now the Washington liquor control board is set patrolling this. But -- they just don't know if they're gonna have. Enough stores with enough pot to supply the demand. Now a crime is down in Denver -- I talked to a friend of mine in Denver point who worked with him briefly. And he was he's this is a conservative guy and he's a Republican conservative. Owns his own business. And he doesn't smoke pot. But he sees the positive impact of legalizing pot in Denver. He said crime is down there's less of a threat because it did the -- has been taken out of the hands of criminals. Would -- not working here. Now most of the Washington State shops planned to limit their customers to two grams. Per transaction. -- because you make a transaction Bullock outside. The comeback. I don't know and -- they'll be ways to to get around. But right now in in Seattle they're selling out -- for fifteen to twenty dollars. Per Graham. Now -- I don't I don't know what that means. So if you want a semi tech Santelli is is is that -- -- I hear that it I hear that it's going to be expensive. In Seattle I don't know what it is in in Denver Colorado. But tell what's the street value upon in this city fifteen to 220 dollars a gram.
