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.

Well Lori -- I appreciate you CNET and today it's great to have Bob -- -- -- my -- and during the day you know I was a morning person it was -- in the morning out there for rebounds on the on the radio. But I all right -- but I I love you know I love the night show was well and it's it's it's. It's my show and might work ethic is no matter what I do where I do it I'm gonna do the best job I can't and you know I've I love the audience it's it's growing it died so it's it's been fun for me and I appreciate the fact that you notice that and I I don't sit on -- as well. Yes please do not. Thank also -- appeal. All right Gloria and thank you for listening. According to -- research. Stress. Can be contagious. If you're in the presence of someone who were stressing. That you become stressed. So that means that there can be a negative impact. A second -- stress. Michelle Manny assistant professor of clinical psychiatry -- medical school. She's quoted in the story we have on -- WL. If we can -- each other stress level. Each other's anxiety. Then we can be more responsive and helpful to each other she goes on to say that because we tend to be empathetic toward others. We can even be affected. By the stress of strangers. So that means that it work. At home any place. If you find yourself affected by the stress of others. Research shows that men and women are equally affected by this. Second hand stress. Now there was a time when we were not concerned about secondhand smoke. And I grew open house -- where both my parents smoked at home in the car windows rolled up you know it. Everywhere but -- okay. Tours they know all of us in -- failure or just fine. I I worked with people who smoked in the same studio that I was in very young in my career. No one thought about secondhand smoke and now because of the anti smoking campaign we've we've we've reached a point -- secondhand smoke is a big deal. So I wonder if this new research about about second hand stress. I wonder if this is gonna lead to a turning point. In our acknowledgment of the stress and second stress me if this is further accepted. And supported by research. Then why not applied new rules and regulations to those people who choose. To stress. Businesses could -- stressing in the workplace. Employees who stressed. Would be required to take a stress break and go outside stress. And indeed you'd walk around drive around you you see people groups of people standing outside of businesses that deal out their talking stressing. Why should those of us who choose not distress why should we be exposed to distrust of others. Anti stress campaigns could include warnings have been negative impact that stress has on airlines. Parents. Would be encouraged -- never stressed in front of their kids because it might teach their kids distress. And no parent wants their child to grow up and be a Strasser. The campaign to protect Americans from secondhand stressed to -- stressing in restaurants. Even bars and nightclubs. I mean people who choose distress. I think they would become seemed as second class citizens criticized for their stress habit. Soon people would be trying to convince their friends and loved ones to stop stressing because of the negative impacts on their their health. And I'm sure there's some people who would say I just I can't live with anybody I can't date any body. Who stresses. And then there would be the ultimate debate. About whether or not to -- stressing in open public places. I mean should anybody be exposed to people stressing if they're out trying to have a good time so it -- near park. Or anywhere. Should our kids of -- out playing should they be exposed to somebody who is. A stress -- Possibly be affected. My second -- stress. You know the more I think about how successful bans on smoking have been due to the effects of a secondhand smoke. Then you know may be. This isn't a bad idea maybe we can get the same results will be -- stressing in the workplace I mean you of their people in your workplace they're stressing. And doesn't that make you stressful. If somebody at home -- doesn't that make you stressful. It even if you see somebody in a public place attending the attendant be affected by their second hand stress. So if you want to stress look I realize it's legal it is legal to stress in this country. But that's your business. Doubt you have the right distress but. You don't have a right -- -- around me. This group blog is on our web site second -- stress can be harmful to your health greeted Jarrett. It's a double WL dot com we'll be right back. This is another one of the top -- since 1979.

You know Mike are quite often excuse -- but I do on this show is so I use -- sarcasm to point out how ridiculous things are. And it's ridiculous to think that.

And yeah I was being so I got a text a moment ago from some ways it is ridiculously talking about a second hand stress. Well there's a new study that shows that second -- stress is contagious and if you think about it when you're around other people who stress. You tend to get stressed. So the whole point was to be sarcastic about second hand stress in the idea that well if there's secondhand stressed and maybe we should ban stressing so nobody is. Adversely affected.

Think about it give us your opinion by going to WW relevant to obligated update on that in just a moment personally I think it's good if there -- things about you that are quite different. If you're very much alike sometimes that leads to personality. Competition and that that hasn't always worked in my life I've noticed that it. If I'm kind of opposite somebody I really get along better and if it's somebody just like me because again I couldn't live with me. He was somebody just like me that would drive me nuts. God -- anybody who has to deal with I mean it's got that you'd like to do the same things but I don't know if we should be just exactly alike. This is a Saturday edition dispute -- will be right back into the WL -- get a chance of rain today and tomorrow so I hope that doesn't affect your plans you know I've -- find something to do where it's all covered right -- the downtown New Orleans area and much of the greater New Orleans areas got a break from the rain much of the race to the self.

Arguing your spouse or partner more alike or more opposite. 38% say more -- And 62%. Say more opposite. Here are a couple of text about two stressing a retired about this studies that show is that their second -- stress and stress is contagious. Therefore we could be affected by somebody else distress. Kind of like perfected by somebody else's smoke secondhand the -- -- maybe we need to start banning stress. So those of us who choose not distressed. Will not be affected by somebody who chooses to stress. This is a text from Jim who called -- said he is distressing now because of this said study about stressing. He says. It's GM and now I'm stressed about people not getting the joke. Yeah I'm by roadblock to a title second -- stress can be. Hazardous to your health it's on our website at WW dot com and a couple people have died understood the that the sarcasm -- -- truly. There are many times when I only use did sarcasm. Two. To make a point here's attacks understand the sarcasm. Like appearing a voluntary action to a physiological. Involuntary response is nonsensical any responsible. You may have intended to mock the study but it came off as you were mocking secondhand smoke grow. Again. I would occasionally use company to make a point here's a text I'm afraid the politically correct crowd. Might take your sarcasm seriously. LO well well and indeed that does happen here's a text wait. We will work word like get that now I'm stressing about backed the rate. It was or something distressed about -- a -- -- stress is manageable. There are different ways to manage stress taking deep -- meditating. Walking away from the problem until you can handle it. Yeah those are big waste it handles and I think that's the whole point about this -- because if if we allow ourselves. To get stressed for around somebody who is stressing. Then that's really our fault. We need to recognize that they're making a stressed and we should. Make sure that we don't stress. I Monday night a dispute showed there are some interesting similarities between the Russians shooting down a civilian plane in 1983.
