One ends up shooting another recording the penalties then gets into a standoff with officers when they arrived you respond to the gunfire. And stay in that taking his own life. In that hotel room is all four out of towners visiting New Orleans. After it was over way in the swat team laughter began interviewing people at the Weston and asked them. How this is gonna affect their decision to return to New Orleans for another vacation Hank. So it was dead and someone was seriously wounded in the hotel where they were staying the swat team had to be called in. And believe it or not every single person I talked you said well. And I'm glad it happened it's sad but I can keep us from coming back to New Orleans and got a lot of this happens in every city or hey that's just the world we live in today.

Nomo to this sort of violence with the news cycle where it is with our ability to get news from so many sources so quickly all the time we hear about the shootings and places it would not supposed to expect them. That happened all over the country and all around the world that we become desensitized. To it. To appoint or drivel like and are right now as a dead guy guy seriously wounded swat team was at the hotel.

Mostly sunny to kick off this Monday morning hot and humid of course by the after the you know Natalee to a few scattered downpours look for a 30% chance today. Dropping down a 20% chance overnight and for Tuesday a 60% chance for rain pretty good chance the season downpours that put ties right around ninety.

And we count up to the West Virginia mountains the sea with Steve jealous domicile about as the saints. Yet rated play their second pre season game game right here in the war. Good morning everyone let's get this week started right a big focus for the saints this training camp has been to become an efficient running team this season engaging kid him Bobby Hebert says they looked I'll point last Friday in Saint Louis is how well they were running the ball and a gash in the rams at the beginning and a lot of props go while the marking him and his effort he looks really boys out there and hungry Ingram carried the ball eight times for 83 yards and a score while the team rush for a 123. Yards in the game meanwhile defensive tackle Jonathan Jenkins has come off the physically on able to perform list following pectoral surgery head coach Sean Payton says that Jenkins will be eased back into the flow of things spin back and on the roster or practice and one thing but. We gotta be mindful that. There's a transition here it's not. Everything right away over at Panthers can't Tavarez king appears to have overtaken bread and Burson is Carolina's number four wide receiver the top three or Kelvin Benjamin Jericho Cotchery and Jason a bond king ran a four point 440 at the column bind with a quality ten foot three broad jump at just over six foot 187. Pounds LSU football held its media day and at the center of attention was the top recruit in the nation freshman running back letter warned that isn't shy and has some lofty expectations for himself this season. For my first three I thought they are resident. All American on a secede. And hopefully high as you can. Rory McIlroy captured a fourth major with a win in the darkness at the PGA championship he destined Phil Mickelson by one shot at Val Hala finishing at sixteen under par and is this the season the pelicans make the playoffs if we're healthy we're fur sure a playoff team guard Eric Gordon told basketball insiders dot com we -- although Gordon has just played a 106 games over his first three seasons in New Orleans so keeping him on the court would be a small victory for the panels today have four on sports talk hear from Sean Payton employers following today's practice plus what adjustments to the saints need to make after their first pre season games from saint camp in West Virginia Steve Geller WW wells. Awards David West Virginia I'm Dave here in New Orleans and will be back right after this talk about their sport that doesn't expect much or want my that is. Season does he's here that's Steve about that live from West Virginia talent nags. Also talk about Kevin ward juniors dying on the racetrack. And Tony Stewart behind the wheel car and kill them. With Steve thank him about that here at WW well I am FM and Dave Conan Portland's Steve gallery in west Virginia's Steve first. Pre season game behind us the second one next week in each American 25 minutes. More sports talk about that is that sent them home to the dome for pre season action right now the you've played a sound kind of ballots he's Leonard Ornette from yesterday's media today is not expected much this season has. No not confident at all of his abilities I think it's great you know expect that from yourself. I would say before that though you kind of have to seniors ahead if you right now. On the depth chart that'll probably get more of the carries and Kenny Hilliard Terrence McGee. But hum let's miles has been touting him. You know leading up to training camp comparing him to the likes of Michael Jordan so I now I you know I wouldn't I would not X. You know wouldn't doubt him. Achieving some of those ability Hugo's a look at. All SEC all American and analyze the Heisman hopeful he expects we all that in his freshman year. Well hey yea you you'll like the confidence and got a bout came through that would be great at a very serious now. What do you think's gonna happen with this investigation Tony started sounding like police and not looking at criminal charges against him after he hitting killed Kevin ward junior when. Junior got out of his car and was pointing at Stewart on the racetrack after Stuart apparently bumped him and made him spin out. In what some bad blood between his due and do you think and the legal system gets more involved. You know I I'd do just because of the fact I think the legal system will get more involved because to me what I see in that video. A full war coming out of his car into traffic as you know some people been saying it's not the smartest. Thing in the world obviously but these other car seem to be able to avoid him and them when going up to Stewart's car. You can tell he revs the engine and the car kind of fish tailed in toward sucking him under the vehicle and ultimately killing him. I've got to imagine that some kind of spectacular manslaughter charge could be involved there but I'm no I'm definitely not a legal expert I do think. We read a sheriff said there was no intent. One of the sentence Tony Stewart's career yes or no is Tony Stewart's career over. I don't think so I think he definitely has a strong enough legal team to fight this but I didn't think he is responsible. In some way shape or form he's not completely it was an a complete act. Suited to me. The gala back wicked funny that meant more sports here at WWL IMS diamond that now that's the early edition of WWL first news it's August the eleventh that's 2014. And its monetary yep we're gonna get through its you know and I are going to lead the charge several Washington. Like us and together we'll form a group team trudged through Monday. As a unified group determined to make it locking arms and going over the hill absolutely doing now now. So social tedious celebrities. Lights for us as an amazing though I'm not really amazed by well and I sort of think about it I'm like OK as the united in the sell these anecdote loop through and ordered a degree that we're gonna. Mark talk much during that. And and I expected a cam bumper of lips against the people on and have cosmetic procedures at their lips look filler Fuller you know I love that. Pump out their lips during a self he boob jobs I concede because. You're on FaceBook. Twitter or any of those vacancies so many self these are taken arm above where they make sure eakins either. Bolting cleavage it's apparently important to a girl what she takes the sultry. Give me your Botox to tighten things up a little but that there are things 10% increase in those jobs between 2012 and 2000 at its Sam's nose job as a wise it was already pretty popular. But now you Martha. 7% rough is in the hair transplants. As for men and women. And a 6%. Increase in idol surgery. Yeah in my let's look a little rupiah myself reasoning amendment the tactics yeah yeah in us of anything about face lifts and that. I'm gonna go drop a couple of ground right it would just to get started you know younger and yet younger and younger people at him Botox and killers and men and we haven't even talked about the boom in but doc. X aug follow of course you know with the car dash it and got them that they're resilient all but yet be able bots that are at the Armenian. And in now and again our halo with her big Biden. Alan a lot of people a big spots. That's that's a totally I don't think that as it was social medium term it takes copies of them bought. Although they do that nearest thing where they turn kind of sideways and they can deal anyway. Again younger and younger people getting plastic surgery. As of cell fees and social media in general and while. Who would have thunk it Lotta time we Wear him yes indeed. The time we live and is one where pizza loving turtles are dominating the box office are boy did I get my god you're right. Onstage mutant ninja Terrell stick a big slice out of the box office. 65 million dollars in the opening weekend and still got to the studio set I would go to sequel. Another candidate in 2016. Will be another TM NC. There. Yeah America account Amani. I don't know opening weekend I mean that's just a little tip of the iceberg yep absolutely plus all the marketing in the or reason. And the dvds and everything else again of them be in that the marvels comic book adaptation guardians of the galaxy. Is in second place after opening last weekend the top spot RD man 175. Billion mean you know into the storm third hundred foot journey forth. And Lucy. It. The box office I've been asked in folks detects that a seventy them suitors. About this violence now I went to the I went yesterday morning during this one stand out. To the west of New Orleans hotel nice food and got a one of the finest in the city. Not a place where you expect to hear about gunfire and during the red dress run weekend you know this the hotels were packed. We also a dirty linen night bringing people land. And so he wasn't. He wasn't cheap this weekend to stay and a fine downtown and regardless not know but for people from out of town. Staying on the seventeenth floor of the west and have a domestic dispute. One ends up shooting another according to police that person wounded and taken to the hospital the shooter eventually upstate takes his own life. People I talk to with a hotel. One after another after another. I said hey you know does this bother you is this gonna keep me from coming back to New Orleans dumping it people. Are gonna hear this news like a man horror fought if you can be shot at one of the nicest hotels in New Orleans. I'm never coming back to this place this is too scary this is crazy. But even before they knew the details one person after another missing aunt and happens. The violence is everywhere is as part of life it is what it is at work on bad. We got that back on too they probably says you know out of towners this job in the cities before over this whatever. And that's really was that that the overall attitude the attitude isn't that what church. And in that happens so wise. Man so I was just I'll have gone back. Guess our society has become numb. To a lot of the violence and I think part of it is the 24 hour news cycle and the way we yet news and events on our phones on computers etc. radios televisions everywhere. And we hear every day about another. Dramatic shooting somewhere. Think that maybe at some point it's too much drama in our lives and people are gone well. Yeah centrist thing but I arid areas it's well I'm gonna impact may so I just go on and that's the most of the people attacks as today it's 7870. It is what it is. One text message that it that it needs them but someone does that. Breaking the ranks with all the other text messages it's it is a big deal especially if you wanna raise children and a good environment where it's not acceptable. Act violently. Now the president says it's no it is New Orleans I expect nothing less well these weren't New Orleans. These were tourists. News started shooting each other. And it got a timer once started shooting another and it's not himself edited dollar entered the Ninth Ward shooting last night and made him perhaps and then another tragedy but. I don't know how much people are affected by one tragedy after an it's too much tragedy too much drama and they hear about all of itself. OK well we'll continue this discussion that we'll talk yeah but when he minutes more prisoners Chris Miller joins us birthday it's wolves at Charles parish today as well crystal tells about that.

They stress that all camp and didn't create any. Against the rams hopefully against the titans in the superdome that'll be a different story. Also stopping the Ron. Saint Louis had pretty good success on the ground averaging four point seven yards per carry against the saints defense and another one to shore that up. As well as up penalties there were ten penalties for the saints for a 104 yards in the game card to be expected go to first pre season game. Dust in the rust awful little right there so and leave that number.
