The saints are about to head out to green buyer West Virginia. Is having training camp. In a faraway state. A good thing. Or a bad thing now. You need to think about this in a couple of ways you need to think of this as a fan. In all or were going to be selfish and say we wish the saints would be stating here. Is that better for them to be away. To avoid the distractions of home I'm very fortunate to have many years ago I used to live next door to a launch grooms who played for the things. And to grow -- the wide receiver he lived across the street. And they would have to go I think off to a of Vero Beach. And they bolts -- -- as far as training. The spores getting your head in the football. As far as bonding with your teammates. That that was the absolute best thing for them of course at that point they did they didn't have patron in specialty. One David drug but but that they agreed that goal in -- way. Was -- a little testing and I think we have to do here. Is that we have to trust Sean Payton went to trust Mickey Loomis and they're gonna do the best thing for for the team. You know you'll get a chance closely and at at other times but my personal belief is that we have to do -- best for the team I would much rather have them go away. And be in a football mentality. And come home and win games what are you -- to six early 7866. And -- 90 its Lebanese. Yes it's almost time for for news David -- -- walking into. Huge and spacious WWL news complex right -- the morning -- morning David thank you David a little familiar story about technology. Over using right is it my imagination.

Welcome back to Charlotte -- -- to show me Bob and totally new coming -- our last caller had had a great idea being. It drives me insane when we have a Stanley get togethers everybody is on the little cell phones or texting back and forth in the you're trying to have a conversation with the other. And and their taxi. He said that what he does he has ruled that especially if they go to a restaurant but the first personal after the opponents to pay the bill. Does this situation of people texting and all the time and then we get those those are the noise you. Do you have any any solutions on how to keep that perhaps but he probably will add that to what we're talking about the morning. 26 year old -- 7866. -- -- 90870. And about the Florida man. Who caught on aid to your land raped the eleven year old son beating him up and called the ambulance called to collect his bloody puddle. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Or should cubs have a metal in my gut the interest in text messages on this Bob. Bob the Bible says turn the other cheek getting -- assaulting. The abuser makes the day at almost as bad. Sin is and here's another one op. Understand the dead emotional response but just think if everybody did that when they found out her kid was abused -- or hospital was treating. -- details. Maybe it of people not to -- anymore we did that. So obviously -- some people think that chargers should be made 260878668. Mentally it's seventy.
