8-6 Scoot Show 9pm, Causeway Guard Rails

Aug 6, 2014|

The Causeway Commission is talking about test results for a new type of guardrail on the bridge. There are more accidents involving vehicles going over the railing into the lake on the southbound bridge and that guardrail is 6 inches lower compared to the northbound bridge. Do you think raising the rail 6 inches would make a difference in safety on the Causeway?

There's a social media flurry of controversy earlier when it was announced that at the Mercedes-Benz superdome they're going to be offering a category five horror -- hot dog. During the -- season. And I had a chance to it to go to the media tasting of old and new items that are being offered and food was just a delicious but some people took offense category five hurricane hot -- Because of Katrina. Even -- Katrina was a category four hurricane. Are people being just too sensitive with this I just we got a picture it's just a few moments ago. And I here's. Here's a Texan -- Cisco what's wrong with these people it's hot dog grow up. Yeah I mean if if if you're that sensitive to a category five hot dog her cannot talk. They -- we should not be offended by. The hurricane. They drink. While we should not be offended by countless other things that are available. Mean I still feel badly for for anybody who endured. -- tragedy. Or just a terrible setback -- a result of Katrina as somebody if you did it. But visited a little over sensitive to say and I don't I don't agree with that being named category five that's one of the things we're talking about the -- right. Also the -- commission. Is meeting tonight to talk about the test results from a new type of guard -- This would be for the southbound bridge would make it six inches higher at least I think six it decided it's six inches lower right now the southbound -- -- praised. And the new bridges the northbound lanes the new northbound lanes have more -- more of an embankment there our guard real per say and it's six inches higher. -- there have been occasions when cars have gone over into the lake so the question is if a vehicle goes over the guardrail the lake. Is it fair to blame the -- guard rail or is it -- driver responsibility. And if you do decide to drive the cost -- Don't you except some degree of risk of whether it's the northbound lane of the self -- Mean I I I don't know physics but I guess there are different scenarios where you can go over the guardrail.

Now this is not reflective of all Republicans. This is just 63 conservative Texas Republicans a -- Georgia Republicans by this but it seems to me that there's a desperate attempt to. To try to instill fear in people about about same sex marriage. And since the battle to ban same sex marriage legally isn't working then those who were on his crusade seem to be. Just. Acting out of desperation motor talk about that on the show host of blog tonight. It's -- conservatives becoming desperate to -- same sex marriage reality.

And we have. Any capitalism free marketplace where we can actually for our -- what do we like our utmost portrait. And -- seniors a lot of times. And that since. It is measured by this -- a crisis but the severity and perhaps it is measured by public outcry. We'll look back proceedings if the majority of people who were written about this initiative to people. And they can simply not patronize them that they -- seen him. A lot of management. If anything now. Well I I would agree with you especially in our free enterprise system that are stairway to speak his says through your decisions that to our consumers make. However I don't think that anybody should go out of their way to named something. That is offensive but sometimes things are named. And they are perceived as being offensive when the intent was not to offend anybody. -- and we don't really know which which that was spot. I figured it was obviously you don't risky generally people just -- well considering. The the back. But there was you know -- this there's a local band called category six and I don't think they. They decided on that thing to be offensive to anybody or. -- To somehow belittle those who have been through the tragedy of Katrina or any hurricane for that matter. It. Is ice OK so what do you lived in them -- -- -- -- in India. They had tornadoes and in Indian or. A Kansas that would be the big tornado state government that from the wizard of us here where are you living you living Kansas. Should be -- the game twister. Public -- -- -- percent. You know it and it and it it really is that that big of an issue and not -- people just you know dust and those people you have the reached -- Not patronize and then the problem will be solved because it's it's it's actually is to settle on it will it will which. Michael idea I like the idea that we empowers consumers and appreciate you calling our show from the North Shore Sousa junior and WWL. That it. May rule that there. A now. -- -- trainer. And trying to. Well. -- I agree with you -- and it's something that we can relate to in this part of the country we can relate to a category five. Hurricane. It's a bit that's a big storm and hot dog is a big hot dog and I I just -- out a picture of a few minutes ago it's it's not even signed for more than 13 designed for one person it's it's a long big hot dog. And now. And on. Boy that's -- that's -- great point and and I think that is. Really why so many people find so many little things to be offended by because they really don't have any big problems. And you live you live on the North Shore so obviously you join the -- who. A -- commission is talking tonight about this says it has studied it was done on new guard rails that are talking about raising the guard rails on the self found. Bridge up six inches -- or six inches lower than the northbound lanes. If -- -- goes over the side is it to guard regulars at the driver. -- -- -- Not pay attention. How. -- if you don't pay attention it certainly is that the guard rails. And not I. This is a good point Susan because it you know the costly in some ways is a very very safe it it it might be considered. Among the the safest 24 miles in America because they're there were no intersections. But it's also dangerous because. It's it can be monotonous for some people and they might not be paying attention to what they're doing or they might get you boards are doing other things. And let him. Gary. Back at the state. Darn things aren't real high. Or individual. -- In the end in. -- I think it's the fault of the individual and if you work concerned about going over there at the guard rails then you have an option not to Droid the costly if you get on the causeway. Don't you assume some risk for being on the cause. Susan I enjoyed every our conversation and I I like your respect for personal responsibility -- appreciate you calling. You get a comment our numbers 2601870. Toll free 866889. Series heavily -- as a 77. From Mary. WW well. Pace stood for a period they had little bad finally just can't it was a genius. I actually agree with. Jimmie to not yet -- bat an eye on people you know upset about this hot dog being on the Canadian category. You know opens up and it. Well it looks I didn't eat the whole thing but it is it looks like it took took me to an unfinished weeded out one more time. -- so if you if you wanna join me on Twitter it's -- -- WWL I took a picture of it earlier today at the Mercedes-Benz superdome it's clearly marked the category five hurricane hot dog and it's a big hot dog. Hello. Don't know I mean it might have been a foot long. -- belong at the to build on basically. Yeah had a bunch of other cellphone so -- it's it's a massive hot dog in the same way that a category five storm is a massive storm. Beautiful on the rail topic is personal responsibility like the belief that the -- before. It's about our personal responsibility tropical Utley yet it was a very monotonous -- But -- -- pay attention and don't know. You know Strahan. -- and that's how some people fight monotony I hope I see people read the newspapers was years ago alive because of falls they have to read the newspaper anymore but it. I I've seen people do crazy things on the on the causeway -- and which was reading a newspaper. He understand women would make a point that it -- doing great things that. Like he had been out on the cause late for a long time you know both ways and yet pay attention and it's live. Jerry alleged -- show affection listing nice to know that there are careful drivers out there who actually do pay attention. Here -- attacks may -- they should just take the guard -- off altogether. I drove the causeway a lot. And I never hit the the guard real wants. So theoretically if you if you've driven the causeway and never hit the guardrail. That theoretically you could have driven the causeway. Without regard -- And I know that becomes freak. Innocent way you know if you were standing on a two by four and it was six inches off the ground. It would be different than if you were standing two by fours it was forty feet off program. But still standing and two -- four. So again I think about it the erratically I -- driven the cause weight without the guard rails and if you've driven the -- without pitting the guard rails. You could do. Here is attacks that -- Cisco only a gay guy can get away with hanging out with a woman like that. Well. Contrary to what many people wanna believe. I'm not gay and I have good female friends. And I have hung out with them in situations where it was totally respectful and -- They're attractive females but sex is now part of the equation there's no physical relationship. And I I find different -- to be very endearing. From reserve -- your WWL. It's who I'm in the Broadway -- accounts in Barbara checked you know. People you know council doesn't stop. And that does that mean you want to -- -- want to all of all right well now -- -- in the sweet little wired tropical you know. Had a bit check -- four or should sit right spot as strong -- elements you know. Now storm my. Mind. It's and it and -- dirt just -- aren't you -- -- -- -- -- speed up these these upstarts like on the break such people right now I. He wanted attention when Monday where our Barbara Barbara Japan -- the formal role model for it. Citizens was this southbound north. That -- -- Hillary feel toward our -- -- when I -- okay RC yeah although. Yeah I mean it can happen it can happen anywhere and while I think he would be fine if. The guardrail on the southbound bridge force which raised. The idea of blaming the guard rail is is ridiculous if you drive the -- because I think you accept a certain responsibility when you decide to get on the causeway and drive whatever vehicle is that your your driving. Exactly and you have -- -- the single it's gone and Illinois. Are approximate secured bridge there as -- over massacre. With a small little little wooden barricades. -- my -- that -- real time and all. Like their products sold here -- British secret probably Bobble. As well.

Although. -- -- We -- couple outs to operate. It's not be able. Interestingly it and if if I'm not aware of the fact the cause wade doesn't it meet DOT standards. But if that is the case that would be interesting to investigate. Portraiture generic think -- that I mean it it it -- Could be a could be. Did you call or something like that mobile there -- -- political -- what would now. Incorrect and knowledgeable. In bill but com I mean. I think I -- think it's I do think it's amazing that they're no shoulders on the causeway but you know you you drive the causeway by choice I mean it's a decision that situation. These I don't -- In these. It was 1960 and was able to is it a little note note and -- -- it was built and -- like get out of that -- You know got the information or. Or announced you're 509056. I just had the numbers backwards like I 50s1956. Part that it. Along prompting one uncle. It was an act. Bill that religion mandala or. No it. I appreciate the information and thanks for calling it I I would be surprised -- the cause we doesn't meet DOT standards. Buddy it's does have its hazards and you don't have to drive the -- if you choose to who don't to accept a certain amount of risk being on a bridge for that long over water. I don't collier on the -- showing -- WL. Well -- -- didn't do in a vote. -- -- -- -- issue and they -- group may you know that you'll be calling because. -- receipts and party and -- Ma ma ma ma -- talking about all the -- be you know. Mean -- you talk about it oh. Yeah in the he'll. Most of it down. You know I'm and the players and indicator that we -- got the pieces we get -- the other way and and not a mixed -- and legacy. You get the Euro which replaced used it to within the Euro below. With the old ball ball flight and and you know. Of Mac realize them vote goes -- -- to -- Euro that you failed. To pulling championship game in the bill and I'll sit in the world six in the network announced it will -- that -- could -- Yeah. It's really it's. I think about it it's really nicely not fair it's it's total discrimination and most of the same -- like you're too I'm sitting in that in the terrace section. Our problem. And I saw it and -- that who did not meet duke didn't. You gotta go. At that much more on the plan that they get old and -- -- is predictable for this script. For. And that's never easy. And again navigating around the dome that is never easy. Right so so that's what I wanted it to them about their man -- talks. But in the -- that was taking different -- got bit by bit that we may want to double on the bottom. So what is it maker's bottom feeders. Don't -- to call the show man -- I appreciate you calling thanks for the compliment.

Wise men and women can't be friends. You might actually agree with his his point will do that coming up after the news at 10:10 o'clock -- slight hill David -- on the -- show good evening. They do a great group people have been over the because it more this year matches that have in the past twenty years. The culprit 44 miles straight driving to mind. Which it straight I mean it's what people -- -- -- -- do you draw. It's not a competition to see how he could make it. I still stand its 44 street my -- I'll admit there lakers'. I I agree but you know that leads to two people being bored because it is it is straight. I find the causeway to. Two weeks I I enjoy the drive by an -- -- the cause me and not really enjoyed. But some people get bored -- and start doing other things I've seen people in the past reading newspapers to do it today because you can get on your phone but. Just on a national phone musicals on the cost ways so in broad. Dozens of on the radio. Are you one responsibility is to drive their cards -- -- -- going -- On the way to go -- span. That's that mortgage holders on either side and so why it. Then you wouldn't really work on. People's government and every day in -- He hit the side of two and stand everybody. Why you don't dare I mention this earlier I I've driven the cause -- to expand a lot.

Coming up in the next are also talk -- on 63 conservative Texas Republicans have signed court brief saying that marriage equality could lead to legal incest. Had a failure. And polygamy. Now this group of Republicans even admits that their fears are not necessarily. Not necessarily suggesting that that this is the next logical step for marriage equality. So one should conclude that this is just an attempt to instill panic in America conservatives becoming desperate about same sex marriage reality we'll talk about that in the next hour.
