7-23 Scoot Show 10pm, Driving Fast

Jul 24, 2014|

Sarah Palin was ticketed for speeding and afterwards she joked that she wasn’t “speeding” – she was “qualifying!” That’s a NASCAR reference. She also said her choice of music played a part in her going 63 in a 45 – she was listening to “I Can’t Drive 55” by Sammy Hager. Did you ever talk your way out of a ticket? What did you say? And what song would tempt you to drive fast (Not that you should!)? Have you ever been scared? Really scared? Where were you and why were you concerned about a life and death situation? And that includes those of you who are veterans. #1--Last night on “The Scoot Show” we talked about people who suffer from “political identity disorder”

Monica called the show. Driving and she was still in Mississippi. Bengie. Or rides and call says that she's here first time in New Orleans she's a friend coming to visitor from Baton Rouge I think she said tomorrow. And it's just it's it's fun to help people. Discovered the city and when you do that it also reminds you about all the great things that they already do for example. Andre just called it said what about the the Algiers -- the canal street fair. And that's a great idea. And and I I've done that recently you just take the ferry across take the ferry back. And especially for big -- is is passing by that's of great sensation to be on on the river did the ship just -- The the fairy but that's a fun thing to do it for pedestrians -- I believe it's free from uptown -- -- to -- showing -- WL. -- -- Angel. Island. Little. Yes. -- and she. Got. A million. Good idea. And a look alike -- remarkable because they always have fund fancier. Especially in the -- At the time. And calling Munich. In. And the court. Can't Carly I'm glad to call the show and thanks for listening here's a Texan -- for Monica she sounds pretty mellow may be her friend from Baton Rouge could beat her in the middle somewhere. And they can take this warped tour. It may not be in this city by its. BA. It's and I is a nice experience. That I could I took myself when I was still a tourist aren't really enjoy the well. What my son was he was girlfriend. Months ago. He went on a -- tour and you know I've never been a swamp tour. I guess really a shame I was born here -- reversal -- and use their girlfriend really when you respond to work and he said it was better than he expected. He said it was really awesome so that's something else that you might -- do the swap to work. And this time of year the alligators around upper Mississippi Lance -- to be WL. I don't know -- -- history but not the course they were -- museum down -- -- at quarter. So now someplace she beat us now I think they at Omniture with the day all maybe. That are super yeah. That is a great suggestion or -- effect I just got a -- event I've been getting getting a couple of text in recommending the World War II museum. Art class -- logical so what if you're still listening take all these notes and you call us tomorrow night will remind of a few other things to do. Here is attacks. That read so I tell Monica to eat a -- boy. And parkway bakery. And then take in the -- a city park there we do have a -- a lovely park called -- city park. If you've never had a poll boy -- boy is what I guess it would be equivalent to. A subway sandwich a sub sandwich or deli sandwich in. In that Connecticut's. But it's made on French bread. And again by it by talking about this week. We remind ourselves about how unique this city is it all the little things that are unique swamp tour a -- boy. It's a it's a big sandwich and you can get anywhere fried shrimp or ham and cheese or roast -- or they have been soft shell crab. All kinds of things side that is say is is quite an experience here's a text -- Monica should drive the world's longest bridge. That is unique experience and it's really it's really amazing due to be in the middle of the causeway. And most days. Disappoint in the middle of the causeway. And you're bridge. And you can't see land on either -- cutesy land in any direction. Are really clear day I remember is like in the in the wintertime when -- really cool and crisp. I would get on the cause we're in the North -- and you could see downtown New Orleans but you in the middle of the causeway and Indian and atlas. This waterway outer bridge in Nazi land anywhere. Again by talking about this. In suggesting it for somebody else it reminds us of all the unique things that nucleus have you tried the -- every day. And you haven't thought about that recently -- think about it you know this is really pretty cool can get on the middle of the lake here. I'm I'm I'm over water and in my car but like Nancy land anywhere. And that's really kind of a cool sensation. If you would like to join us with your comet tonight our number is 260187.

This is -- shield we're coming right but if you will. We. We. Long. And yeah. As a black -- -- song a song. Might make you what speed they were talking earlier tonight about Sarah Palin getting a speeding ticket agents say what the reason she was speeding is because she was listening to Sammy Hagar is. I can't drive 55. And so we've been talking about songs that -- drive faster -- -- that you should. It was so intense shoot to drive fast I'll put also put generally at CB -- CT MZ she said I wasn't speeding I was call falling. Obvious reference to NASCAR.

Yeah issues industrious and chances are she's been on a swap too yeah I'm really embarrassed to say that I never gonna respond to her bra I'm gonna gonna figure that out. You know one thing that I thought about the small tumors. You know the alligators. Come right up to the the votes right. And they they feed the alligators. So the alligators are used to eating food. Does that mean that if somebody happened to fall off the boat that alligators would go right forum. The -- you're accused the well. Here's a Texan -- so Monica should take in the show at Rick's cabaret is speaking of which I think it's past time. That I take in the sites. Over it bricks well. Nobody should ever have an excuse me an excuse to go have fun from New Orleans -- -- this crucial and. VW well. -- -- -- -- -- -- There college. -- musician also home. And that what could it get to result Frenchman you can't just force shot while also was -- I was. And that you early. It's he would should go. You get here till Sunday.

No good will come of a directory festival no good will come of this. Okay. -- You know what she got to experience it just so she could tell were friends with it would drive through directory job in the world did you drive up and get a directory. It is the that they do everything like the food and every yeah. Well you know and so to see here. In that bush well easier is just so much. Are you -- to come back continual but French ministry. DNC apostles. Guantanamo. Bay hill club and it to 94 upward streak. You want to get away from -- because people there and enjoy some some good music and also good for outside vendors. Lack -- -- more acute in all of that that's French. It's a great suggestion I love freshman and junior derided. It -- it Frenchman in some ways and it's it's a clean New Orleans high area but it it it's it's kind of like in some areas of the of the northeast where they're they're selling food on the street. -- actually did it all right here and there you wanna get away from the wild well urban street everything all of volatile. Felt fortunate commuted to reach out and read a lot musician myself musician that plays out it there's just need to step. Foreman at bat that was cool relaxed out and attention you are you at home. Yet profitable right now would you do woody -- play. -- And Jasmine France and and do a lot of traditional operate on the -- Obama. Progression as well -- and the right shields. And the effect it has brought ashore in lakes -- all of this we -- them do it with the what was production and articles. But should also in that that -- give them this year in. But what was astute Smart and that's in the except most Saturday and Sunday. Then I don't secular and so she can and -- -- -- -- you might want extradition back. Into the quarters so I appreciate the suggestion. Yeah definitely school and so it isn't so much here as an alternate jurors must -- And I'm more -- give them up on the other report about war. There's I appreciate you calling. -- have not. Yet Monica if you're still listening Frenchman that's. You know Frenchman. I think in some ways Frenchman has kind of the feeling that urban street had many many years ago. And I'm not criticizing herb street to desperate -- there I mean I still love for street. But -- street is a lot of the T shirt shops and there's one cover band after another cover band of artistry. In fact. You can go to you can walk down -- and here. Bands play a Bon Jovi song and you can hear the -- Bon Jovi song as you're walking down. Short and number retreat from from different clubs and as you want to industry at all all coming up the clubs in and Marguerite Advil and again it's not a criticism as much as it is an observation but -- today. Has become. -- in that area with the with the jazz in the music they used to be a little bit more. Common on. On Bourbon Street John -- Judy producer just -- appear funky pirates and that's is that Decatur. As a -- part.

You know I mentioned that the the woman dating and Ohio are opposites wish we'd like to do the same things -- You know she's. Suburban and I live in the cities so in in some ways where we're very opposite and I think it's it's a good. If you are not necessarily just identical to the person with again that's just from my standpoint saved -- might be good if you're with somebody who's exactly like Q. But I think it's fun if you're somebody who's not exactly like Q but you still have to like to do the same things. The new justification for expressing. Stream anti gay views is freedom of religion. There's a news director. News editor at a newspaper in Iowa the Newton daily news. And Bob Ashland. Was fired for writing what he's employers considered to be homophobic block. He's Christian. And he put our personal blog. Condemnation. Of the gay friendly version of the Bible. He was criticizing the queen James Bible which I've never heard of the queen James Bible web site. -- said that that led to his firing is now suing the newspaper for infringing on his a first amendment rights we're gonna talk more about that coming up here just a few minutes. Also tonight we have a talked about Republican senator Ted crews bring up something that I would have never ever considered. I don't think I'm politically naive but I really -- thought -- this. Ted Cruz says that president -- well he's not sure but he is questioning. If President Obama used the FAA. A federal agency. To impose sanctions on Israel when the FAA banned all flights flying into the Tel Aviv airport. And tourism is a big industry utilities. So American carriers not flying into Tel Aviv. Is gonna have an economic impact on the city. And the country. It's been extend its I don't know how long it's gonna go on but it's been extended but frankly but I saw how close that Hamas missile. I hit to the airport and with the Malaysian airlines flight seventeen. And being shot down by a missile. To me. Yet you have to be careful and I don't think it's politically motivated some people do I think this is more about safety. A to join usher at our numbers 260187. Toll free 8668890. Point seven. In a text numbers 877. Also tonight we're talking about. A time when you've been really scared. And I don't mean scared because President Obama was elected I got a couple of those text. And it -- scared and a movie you're on a roller coaster or some kind of amusement park ride. But we've never been really scared. When were you scared and we're really concerned. About a life and death situation. When I was bugged. By four people see beauty. That was not elect and a situation to me. They did have a gun delicacy but I just I didn't have a sense that this was a life and death situation I didn't know I was gonna end. But that I wasn't afraid for my life then. What stands out in my mind -- -- being a life or death situation. Was in 1986. I was in new York and I was ready to fly back to New Orleans and a guy huge blistered. In New York note do work New York that whole area a huge -- hit in 1996. And we were talking like instantly three feet of snow. And I would I was on a flight. Heading back to New Orleans. And I was actually on the plane for five hours. We got to the end of the runway. And we were about to take off. And it was snowing. And I honestly thought that there was a very good possibility. That I was gonna die. I was hoping. That they were gonna be safe. And it was going to be fine. And I assumed. That they were. Gonna do the right thing. But after being on the -- for five hours and we finally get to the end of the runway we are about to take off. And I really thought. I might die I don't know from Italy through this. Right we were ready to take off. They announced they were going back to the terminal. Because they couldn't deicing the plane fast enough as soon as they DI state. -- came right back. So I thought wow. It inconvenient. But this is a blessing. Then I had active. I had to get back to I was actually staying in in we -- had to get back to the hotel and we hawk and which is just across the Hudson from New York City in New Jersey. But I had to get to I had to take a -- to Grand Central station and New York was was just. Desolate. Nobody wants -- on the street. And here I get back and I'm I'm I'm first on fortune to get on a bus while you were stuck at the airport. A bus to get to Grand Central station and walking out of Grand Central station in New York City there was just such an eerie feeling. And I had to walk. Couldn't get a camp had to walk from Grand Central station to the ferry to take the ferry back across to we talk a New Jersey. And during that walk. Not even sure if I would even see the ferry. I was alone. And nobody was around. I -- was New York City and I honestly. A fear for my life. From New Orleans out of your on the -- want to be WL. -- -- -- -- Yeah. I. Are you should violent years ago where are well. NN -- -- it they'll go elk. We Elkhart. -- and the other guys and now we took a little vote and we went out.

And I thought Berkshire. The audit I had I was really. I -- things that we -- there were -- You know killer whale that were in the water and they're real sure -- -- mean you eat them under the vote. Looking. Trying to figure out what would -- and I think with water under the stir up opt for a that a little light. Hello currently.

Water was probably thirty or. Your dot. -- Those -- down. There July. Adam I can see where that would be a very frightening situation and then. I remember and I'm sure you felt the same way when you saw there because I don't think that I rescind that too much imminent danger but I felt that at the time when I was in the blizzard in New York. When when I finally saw the ferry coming over from New Jersey because they were. They were big giant chunks of ice in in the Hudson and I was sure to ferry was was gonna run. And there I was stuck alone on the wharf by the ferry in New York City and it's just sold. Eerie because nobody's out but you never know who could be -- I didn't know what I was gonna do but I've -- the ferry coming and I'm I'm sure you had the same kind of feeling when you saw the Coast Guard.
