A restaurant does have an interest in getting because each party only pays one so there is an interest in getting people up and out the get more people sitting down.

Durst family owns the durst organization a privately held billion dollar real estate company that owns several New York skyscrapers. He lives in Texas and he got into a fight with story employees.

Actually involved in the company urgency to happen to be less with the last name to your -- that well he's in the air for stern of the year we don't have that happens a lot of times you know. Daddy and grandpa starts the company. Maybe it following generations are quite as quick on the update that -- Paul was and others like a whole different or out directors give him and it just bear him. I remember 71 year old rob partners ideas about -- is thirteen years ago. He was arrested as a fugitive. And it admitted killing his neighbor and dumping the remains in Galveston Bay in Texas I'm hoping he's not really involved with this relate to sell the sense that was acquitted of homicide charges.

From -- -- to applause this morning more coming -- WWL traffic we have a gripe O meter from. Consumer reports today on restaurants and what's your biggest complaint when you go out to eat. The top three according consumer reports -- dirty utensils or tables dirty ill equipped restrooms and impolite or condescending servers. One person text -- at 87878. As their biggest gripe on the go but it is when you have to keep asking the server to refill your drinks. Mr. through town the -- -- -- servers if you wanna get a good tip. The single thing you must do is make sure they drink is always -- it never ever should someone have to ask for a drink rebel. Or god forbid get up and have to walk to the bar and -- making it democratic government servers that would be around. Well Steve Geller is nowhere to be found on the radio this morning because he's flying to West Virginia so he'll be the saints' training camp. Before the saints -- -- they arrive tomorrow so we have the honor and pleasure while welcoming mark -- for morning sports this morning AMR tells all about sports. I'm I'm here dating you're repelled a drink for Europe which I'll sports -- I'll get it after sport I'll -- The think report for training camp tomorrow and are expecting full attendance at the Greenbrier resort resort in West Virginia that includes a number of players who were in various states of recovery after offseason surgeries having him -- NFL analyst -- -- says -- key for the -- when he fourteenth. Will be getting these guys healthy and back in the line up. Health issues for me well all we've been in this health care if John -- -- -- -- war coming off of injury how well these guys have responded and how quickly taking get back on the field. When a full coverage all for training camp on location from -- WWL sports team. Elsewhere in the NFL some sad news out of Denver the Broncos have announced team owner pat -- will give up control the team. To concentrate and has battled alzheimer's disease the seven year old -- will cede control over to team president Joseph Alice. Ownership of the team has been placed in a trust controlled by non family members which so far is not planning on selling the franchise. Expectations are high the Louisiana Lafayette football team this season after the -- New Orleans Bowl champs were picked to win the Sun Belt Conference. Ragin' cajuns coach mark cuts that says they're they're preparing break capacity crowd for the home opener on August 30. This is don't be a tough ticket again and there are already thinking that. Minimum of 45000. So hopefully be a great atmosphere in the -- great kick off to the season. You'll all open the season against the southern jaguars. And according to testimony clippers' interim CEO Dick Parsons at the team remains in the grass the -- owner Donald sterling and Doc Rivers won't resign as the teams head coach and president. -- called reverse the father figure the team as does if you if you were to -- it would be a disaster. He also testified that several players and he's sponsors remained troubled by sterling racist comments that resulted in his banishment from the NBA. I'm mark -- and that's sure early look at sport. -- executive John Mark when I'm with you on your radio so again is that I'll see your biggest concern that -- today as is seeing now some of these players who did not play last year who went out her last year bounced back this year. Yeah you know we haven't heard much of of of from these guys because you and -- the offseason the saints don't really like to give -- a lot of information so I'll be curious to see you know who gets on the field and at training camp and how well they can. They can bounce back especially a guy like Gerris Byrd who we've brought in. To kind of be a linchpin on the so they said that when he had the little that the surgery done it was just the procedure in just a formality and training camp ready for training camp is not on the physically unable to perform so that's an accurate about Joseph Morgan because he's a guy who showed a lot of promise the last couple years. But then just couldn't get on the field last year. Be nice to have that speedy wide receiver -- ago and I'm a big Joseph Morgan fan and you know you you if you if we have him healthy we can put him on the outside along -- Brandon cooks have to Bernard -- on the field with Colston -- work in the seems. I think that will be pretty much unstoppable in the -- and who I'm like unstoppable at the good work that we can't stop you from gone back with more sports and fifteen minutes here on WW well. And the -- report to camp tomorrow thank you. Mark will talk to you that nine gave the early edition of WWL prisoners the -- a -- one person text mediate 78 that it -- I hit it when he -- waitresses. A waitress sits on my table to take my order. We have ever had and sit on my table but I promise them if we have an extra -- or there's an actress -- in the with sitting down with us when they take the order that's full team can. Pakistan all timing you know that we sit with us when they take the habits that on the table yet that would bother me. So what's next at 87878 as the biggest -- that restaurant it's forced gratuity on attack. -- 50% and consumer reports in the -- commuters say. Security of 18% higher automatically added to the bill is there biggest write your forecast. Partly cloudy skies this Wednesday a 40% chance for showers and storms and look for highs around 91. Now we'll keep that same forecast again for tomorrow 91 at a 40% chance for rain. Then Friday look for 20% chance for an isolated thunderstorm high heating up to 93. For the pinpoint forecast center and meteorologist Laura backed out. 76. At the airports. Any one now and slide now one other -- biggest gripe I hit in the heat tastes -- -- like coffee and penalties like. Allan thank Iran for sharing their gripes with us as we share with you the grateful meter on restaurants from consumer reports here's some kind of funny to me 14% of people tell consumer reports that does not enough information. About nutrition on the menu. 16% that is too much information about nutrition -- on the menu it to turn off. Very and can't please all the people all the time that's torture. I guess this is actually coming it's ironic very rarely do we come across irony in our daily lives that. In 2004 they planted a pine tree in Griffith park in Los Angeles to honor. George Harrison one of the original Beatles who had died on now the tree. After going ten feet has been attacked by insects have been destroyed it was attacked by Beatles.
