There on the road to Fort Lauderdale where they'll perform tomorrow night. Also in Massachusetts and we'll be talking about this tonight -- topic today. They were over fifty people arrested. At a Keith Urban concerts. And apparently there's been growing trouble. With young country music fans. So is this a case of rock on rock music and continuing to have an influence on country music. When you think about. The way a lot of country -- look today. You can't tell the difference between them with their hair and tattoos and Iraq group. And the music itself. It is very pop it's not like country used to be so country music has become very much like rock. And I wonder if crowds are becoming more like -- Poorly behaved brought crowds at the past also logged -- his eyes hot city for big concerts. And we get the sort -- -- website at WW real dot com talked to very left of be productions. And was talking to him about it why New Orleans is such a -- -- destination for concerts and a lot of things going on in this city you just heard our news that the or -- It's gonna be opening up again as yet another -- theater venues so the venues continue to grow but this isn't this is a great time for New Orleans because. The the fact that there are so many concerts here now somebody big name concerts is a reflection of how the city's absolutely booming. And I saw the movie the purge anarchy. Over the weekend and saw the original talked about it last summer. So the sequel we'll talk about it later tonight. It's time for tonight's top rated nature of the topic things we'd like you know which we begin our show tonight on WWL. Number eight.

Quite often hostile witness. But this is quite a milestone -- -- 71 he's also a great great grandfather. Something that I'm sure he never envisioned when he was young so we'll talk about that tonight but the -- -- on our website at WW dot com. You can read it and to share with others it's all about why we should celebrates an attacker simply for first. Number seven on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. Arizona strip club has endorsed a democratic candidate for congress. The great Alaskan bush company in Phoenix is endorsing the reverend Jerry Martin. Who's a member of the progressive Christian coalition. The strip club appreciates more -- stance on affordable student loans and all day kindergarten. Presumably a couple of issues that would affect many of their employees. -- is running a close race in the seventh district seat against three other Democrats to replace retiring long time congressman Ed Pastor in Arizona. But it's interesting at this candidate endorsed by the strip club. Cannot vote for himself. Because he was convicted in 2009 of lying to the FBI and a case involving the then mayor of Phoenix. Phil Gordon. Number six on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. You've seen the president do this along and I I I'm starting to see more more people do -- the fist bump. In -- close -- about somebody's list. Is this a greeting of the future. Pressed upon and others have been -- in this. It's getting more more tension off by myself occasionally doing a kind of liked it because a major -- And here's the deal a university in Wales has now concluded. That's the -- -- Spreads 120. Of the bacteria. That handshake -- So to me that's a good recent and celebrate and start promoting. The fifth spot what they did with the research -- they had they had to researchers -- they shook hands they fit sparked and a high five each other. One more glove covered with bacteria. And the other were clean sanitize glove. And and they measured the bacteria transferred from the glove with the bacteria to the other when during those three things. The handshake. The -- -- And -- high five. And high five wise less than handshake. Was was less in the handshake it's still more than the fifth spot the fish -- was. The most stairway to greet somebody. -- can you manage it like heads of state one day. Instead of shaking hands they're just they -- response. I don't know you -- I am sure a lot of people would think that it's. It's less than. West and -- totally friendly personal to do the fist -- but you know if if we start transferring in our minds of the fifth spot is acceptable. Then maybe this could become the new way of greeting and that would be a way of spreading fewer germs which again is a German folk I'm offer that. Number five on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. Sarah Palin has more new Internet online television show called. The Sarah Palin channel actually is not a show it's it's an entire channel. She promotes cutting through the filtered news and finding solutions to problems. What's -- Sarah introduced. Hello and welcome to a new project. News channel -- -- really -- a lot more than new.

I'm most needs without hearing from you and together we'll all be on the sound -- Washington DC's crony capitalism will go around. Well I respect -- she's doing this she certainly has a right to do it but how long could you listen to that voice. My gosh I mean it's not just to me it's not just what she says but it's it's how she says it. The subscription is 995 month which is about what you pay for -- I guess Netflix. Anybody Dee subscribing to that I'm sure some people will and I'm sure the late night talk shows will because there will be a lot of comic material available through. Through this Sarah Palin channel getting a text here that says the first fist bump. Is done in jail. Well again did or we can and are now saying that we came to the fifth spot because it was invented in jail. In the same way that if you Wear sagging pants it means your prisoner looking for for something. -- just because something starts in prison if it becomes acceptable and people don't related to prison. I don't think it's a problem in any event we'll talk about that if you've just joined this week. We're talking about the the fist -- spreading 120 of the germs.

Has gathered 2600 signatures for online petition. Supporting a new anti harassment. Policy at comic con. Which was this done this this past weekend comic con this past weekend in San Diego and complaints ranged from groping to -- calling to general. Object object if application of women. Now there were a number of scantily clad female characters and we've seen them here nor on top I haven't -- but I I've seen them on the news. There are. Since sexy female comic characters. And people dress in these outfits and sometimes their scantily clad female characters. And I guess this spring we -- -- when you talk about -- -- defying women against this really comes down to the idea that. If a woman is sexy or fishing if she's seen in a very. Sexy sensual way. Does that object defy her to the point where she's not respected. And I effort to short him before when it comes to men's magazines. That's -- there's so much Photoshop going on there that women don't really look like that which is true women don't look like that in real life. Not even the women you see that are appearing to be perfect they don't look like he Lothian in magazines. And not to -- -- personal experience with the issue understand but that's what I heard. They don't really look like that -- but I never thought those magazines were degrading to women. And I don't know. I can't imagine that I'm that different than any other guy. But he seems to me that says it's kind of a way of respecting and an honoring women and nobody should use that as an excuse for doing anything inappropriate. Number three on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. Over fifty people were taken into quite -- custody. At the Keith -- concert Saturday night in a suburb of Boston Massachusetts. 46 were treated for alcohol related illnesses. And 22 were taken to nearby hospitals. A Mansfield county leaders said that there has been a growing problem. With the younger rowdy country music fans. And their use of alcohol. Talk about this on the show tonight also I have to share of a personal experience. That was really on. A very traumatic experience last night at house of blues. There was a woman who was in the parents room this was -- all -- show what house of blues. And I didn't know until much later in the show that there was a parent's room and so. My girlfriend and her sister and husband when after the the parent from. This. This woman obviously had been doing more than. They're just a drinking. Because she went from talking. To sitting down. With their head down today and trying to stand up and passing out on the floor. And this woman. Had to be close to overdosing. Completely. And I do know nobody seemed to think that that was just from alcohol. The staff at house of blues was phenomenal. The way they attended to her way to took care of her. They. Kept this woman alive and also life you know like my girlfriend. And we switched before this staff even got there she and her sister rover there. I mean with their hands on this woman's face shaking her stay with -- stay with us to be her eyes rolling in the back ever had. She was slowing down throwing up and I'm thinking Jimi Hendrix all over again. So -- propped erupting again and the house of blues did a good job in responding to this at this moment and here's the real. Sad part of practice. This woman who was totally passed out. Her fourteen year old daughter was down the concert. House of blues. Apparently they were being picked up in this woman wasn't driving. And then it was -- not the only player who was being really obnoxious and was on something apparently. And she gave even got thrown out -- a thinking that this is an all eight to show what house of blues what kind of example is is this for for parents to set for kids. But then I think about how how parents are often critical of a of a young generation. And yet we often need to look in the mirror and realize that our generation makes big mistakes too. And I would say this woman's about 35 so she's not part of my generation maybe she's she's part of -- but. Clearly an adult and I want Obama praised the house of blues and their staff to mean that this was this was in the middle of -- the domain act NK TO. And and fortunately none of the kids saw this this was upstairs. In what's known as the parents room which again -- did you notice existed until. Late into the show and actually was it was really critical because it's a -- -- they're addicted to drink and smoke because there's no alcohol downstairs at all. Or even upstairs the house of blues with field only to show but this was upstairs -- a side room it's it's called the parish it's a it's a separate hole. Where they sometimes have concert and just had a big screen so they were showing the concert in that room socially kind of a cool thing on. But I couldn't help but to just couldn't help but think about what a horrible example dissents and I can't imagine how this woman feels today. So we don't know we set a good example for kids to. But then you know here's my generation of rock generation that is very critical of the young generation today and here we have all these complaints from this Keith Urban concert. In a suburb of Boston Massachusetts. On the the leader we have Steve Mansfield. County. On board made it to select selectmen chairman and I guess it's kind of like our version of that City Council member perished. A council member. He said that the the crowd the predominantly is causing trouble is somewhere between seventeen and 28. And female. And they're going to these concerts to party. And not to listen to music. And I can't help but think about how this might be another similarity to. Country music. Imitating rock music if you join us with a comet tonight but I mean you were talking about our numbers 2601870. Toll free 866889. Here which seventy at a -- -- is a 77.

And again the purchase said in the future although one thing I noticed about 2024. We still have the same cars around and fashion is pretty much the same -- things haven't really changed. But this is a really interesting message it's about. It's about human hate it's about aggression. Is an exaggeration of course of life is every movie is but it does give us an exaggerated theory if we -- America might be headed if the social and political hate. Continues today.

That words and on top. You wanna talk much lateral -- -- Romero won but it just the process. Are the one approach. And -- economy where. -- think one of the problems is that.

Doing what I'm. Right now. And violence is that it in the that was you know -- I'll. Be here. And that that was the. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I mean I know that is the case in in in in so many crimes that. I'm starting to get the feeling that based on what I hear from people in and based on how I observed some of the crimes that are reported in the news. That there -- lot of crimes that may be committed out of revenge and I think about this carjacking took place at 940 on Saturday night. -- believe the interstate very high traffic area. Nice neighborhood 39 year old woman and her fourteen year old daughter in the car a troubling inviolable south toward the interstate Saturday night. And two guys jump in front of the car stop it. And ultimately they tell her and the daughter to get out of the car two other men along with these guys get out of a Ford Explorer and jump in her Chevrolet Cobalt. And then take off.

Now isn't right there on on the edge of the network became part of the company's operations. But you know. I think it is so much. But with so much information how do you determine. What struggle. Well I know that that is that that is the problem -- when we've often talked about that is through social media people appear to be experts in and people read the written word but. It's being written by people who were not held accountable to an editor to. To a news director or to anybody Anders. So much of a tendency now to. Find to pick and choose what supports your view become hysterical about it and then spread among all your friends.

Time -- direction one directions coming in fact here's a Texas says so like all parents of teenage girls we have one direction tickets scene in two times help me I don't know how to help. But I can tell you that the the parents room for only two -- house of blues which was really quite phenomenal. With the exception of and we'll talk about this on the -- right to a woman who was. -- overdosing and it was a mother of one one of the teenagers who was -- at the concert and there were people there who I believe.

I mean it's a kind of like it because undated manager before. We're also talking about the movie the purge anarchy which was a sequel to last summer's the -- was number -- the box office this past weekend. Will be set in 2024. When crime and unemployment are at an all time low. And a theory in the movie is that the new founding fathers. Now control the country. And the new founding fathers. Allow one night a twelve hour period from 7 PM to 7 AM once a year. For people to commit any crime they want including murder. And it's a way of purging or hate and that theory is that's why. There's such a low crime rate and that's why there's such low unemployment. But there's so many different aspects of the movie if you -- what you're talk about it with us. Our numbers 2601870. Toll free 8668890. Point seven their tax numbers -- 878 separate and this actually got me to thinking about this this idea of we are we going. You know the movie the purge brings up this idea of where we could be headed. I don't think we're heading in the direction. I think we're gonna look back. And be proud of really what we have become. In the same way that we look back now look back at its segregation. We'll look back it. Ridiculous debates that we had over things like the birth control pill. We've looked back and a lot of things and realize you know what we're better nation today. And honestly I think we're gonna look back on all of these times. And -- you know can you believe that we once worried about same sex marriage that we we thought I mean nobody's gonna -- would -- at the wrong. But I think we're gonna -- practices in my personal opinion I think we're gonna look back -- -- this to have any negative impact on the country at all so -- it was is such a big deal. And I think we're gonna look back on. The legalization of marijuana. In the same way that we look back on. On alcohol being legal. A lot of people would argue that alcohol should be legal blood. It is and if there's a problem with this country it's the individuals that use alcohol. It's not the actual alcohol are from -- Brian your WL. Based. The articles and the petition about the comic con thing now and Diego. And my disagreement with you but it it would it's what the mentality that there is normalized growth being in. And it cat calls and not new to professional can't play at that big -- San Diego comic. And he is written. Both public at one awards I mean. San Diego comic con at the biggest one in nine states -- -- here. Right yeah I do what I did -- This one has been that it's well the big guns come out all the big comic book will be -- calm -- on. Betrayal of the most popular shows and be called to come open at night. These Google Talk to. That very day baby -- and full ten years one pair of bullet extremely attractive -- -- -- and some of the skimpy outfit one more away. You know return in the -- In which you captured by the job. And that's quite repeal. They've never experienced harassment never experienced groping they told me that this is blown out of proportion. And what the end and maybe the people that he can't actually god extremely socially awkward people. You and not that the optimal for even approach a -- of -- gutsy girl like that. So what they can only -- that they think that somebody go up blowing things out of proportion. When he got the stand -- Anna may be equated the creepy nets -- -- -- so. The security that you know god creepy. And the -- really get that I am trying to get policy should be changed -- -- it's not on anymore. Do you think some of these these people who go to comic con are being over sensitive. Well I think it's I think it's completely blown out proportion. Public that's what a lot of tech can't conferences in the that was a conference. A technology conference over a year ago and -- told a joke and you're probably seeing that commercial. That at a nightclub Guerrero makes a joke about uncles. And this this girl got edited but I got them both. She went on Twitter and -- big goal. Become irate about. It would that when the took it not -- -- I was just in between two guys bigger dongle -- and really -- goat and a cult leader that can't. Like you really at the BK a couple of EQ what you say these days and political correctness has got in there. I just think it's completely overblown based on you know out in the San Diego com com want never experienced anything like that -- know people we don't we he has some very very pretty -- belated. Never ever had any kind of experience like. And thank you know the equipment that I though you know they -- extremely pretty. Trying to. Yeah I what lives I've seen the pictures are I've never -- into one I I appreciate you calling our show tonight if you just joined us yet there's been a controversy actor comic con. San Diego there's a group that wants stricter rules when it comes to sexual harassment they're claiming that their growth to there cat calls. And they're basically object defied again think about the characters that they and they dress like. They kind of attract that kind of attention.
