Merging late it's called the zipper and apparently in other countries they do a better than we do in America. But you know I never wannabes the guy. Who -- to last minute to merge because we all get aggravated at those people. And so what we try to do is is keep them from zipper you know like is a perfect -- we keep them from. Coming over because we're aggravated that they think their title to beat that open -- so we all tend to merge early most of us. But when we all merge early in a -- -- talking about tennis that creates. The big traffic to him. And I -- this one area I don't drive this during rush -- I've I've had friends who have told me about this recently the wings were wide and on the interstates by the veterans exit. And others to lanes exiting at veterans. And that has apparently not really worked out that well yet because traffic gets backed up there hopefully it's its air flowing a little smoother now. And hopefully that will all smooth out. But everybody tries to get over soon as they know that there's going to be -- change. Orleans and come to an -- everybody tries to get over at that moment and what that means is everybody trying to get -- same time so therefore it there's a backup. So maybe we should learn. From other countries that we should not be so bitter and angry. If those people who were in the lane -- try to get over even at the last minute and maybe we shouldn't be so quick to try to get over I don't know I would like to know that this would work. In America. It is Friday August the first 551. New laws take effect today. He's a laws passed by the 2014 legislative session. What new law going into effect today gives you protection to the personal emails social media and on line accounts of employees.

A restaurant that serves alcohol not a bar that serves food. And another law that goes into effect today August the first is a law requiring jail time for parents who hit or attack a refereed. At their children's football basketball baseball soccer game or any athletic event. There was a time and it wasn't that long ago. When attacking -- for -- over call was just unthinkable.

Not knowing that she has these cuts. The boss said in implied handling food. With open source.

There's a possibility that people already doing so I mean not everybody with a gun not everybody with a concealed carry permit follows a lost -- this unfortunately may already be happening. But there seems to be some concern that people are gonna get the wrong idea. And think it's that you could carry a gun into a place that serves alcohol you can now bring a gun into a bar. And that is clearly not part of this new law that his his gone into effect. There's no intent to. Now open the door for firearms to be part of divorce and it quite simply if if you have a concealed carry permit. If you're expected to be responsible person.

Did because he was the president of the united space don't stop them from being intimate. Well there are people who hold the president and as certain people in our society up to a higher standard and I do understand that and I think one of the most. Unfortunate things is that Bill Clinton I decided to act on his. Sexual instincts in the White House in the Oval Office which would say a bigger mistake that had he done it to privately it's it would have been the statement it was an even bigger mistake doing it in the Oval Office.
