I'm in various. There's just spent so much news stick to talk about it and fortunately so much of it is violent we're also. Remembering Robin Williams who was found dead at the age of 63 of an apparent suicide. I remember Robin Williams that it showed up of very. On sands a torment its side when I met him and it's decide if I saw him in in there at the serious roles that he played could -- -- dead poet's society. A few aspects of a good morning Vietnam. And if that was the sight of him that stands out most in my mind what you remember him more as a comedian or serious actor.

There was into the final weekend this summer in New Orleans this past weekend sixteen people were shot five were killed.

And rioting and looting erupted last night following the shooting of a young black male and a suburb of Saint Louis eighteen year old Michael Brown was shot and killed by police. -- chaos broke out after a vigil. A peace vigil. Coming together to remember this this young man. And his parents have pleaded for the violence to stop. But I think this just goes to show how close to the surface. There is such reach. In so many people. And people looking for an opportunity to retaliate. Against two for -- I can't say. But there is this desire to retaliate to seek revenge to vent frustration since. You know we all remember the riots in Los Angeles after the news version of Rodney King trial. There were people who were looting. And rioting. Didn't even know anything about the -- One guy was asked by by TV reporter. Something about Rodney king and he goes no I don't follow sports. So there were people who were rioting. Who who didn't even know anything about Rodney King. Truly sad so there are people who just want to commit violent acts. And you see people looting and walking out of stores with with tires. In Ferguson Missouri. And all these other items and what is it about eight to meet their needs to be an investigation. In a police did not handle this an appropriate manner. They needed before they need to be punished. Period that this is -- if they did not handle this in a proper manner this absolutely unacceptable. But so was the violence. Jurist -- with your comment -- numbers 2601870. -- free. 86688 on steroids every text number -- 878 separate here's a texted did you mention the movie the world according to Garp that was mentioned earlier and a lot of people invention that is there. Favor to Robin Williams movie when you heard about him committing suicide in -- that he was dead today -- 63. What's the first rolled it came to mind from Robin Williams. Here is a -- Robin Williams a man who left life much too soon. Will be sorely missed by everyone whose lives he touched with his comedy. And brought huge files to their faces the world is a different place without him tonight but we've remember him with love and our hearts and fond memories. In our minds. A beautiful text. A from Gulfport Troy you're on the -- shown to be WL. You can hear me -- execute -- -- two quick comments hello Robin Williams remembered for for pop -- You don't sleep. On the voice of the genie in Aladdin yes which a lot of people probably don't realize. And it's just it's a sad sad thing in any -- -- was you know the violence people on. All understand what's going on down -- in New -- -- all of us should be approach towards people out here talking about that I'm never going back to the French Quarter. Because of the shoe is going on appears just they don't feel safe regardless comic culture down there and well being open to listen to which you have to -- in. In reply to that. -- I've I've I appreciate calling I lived downtown I was in the quarter over the weekend so I'm -- quarter quite often it's essentially in my neighborhood. As well as downtown -- close to the beginning of -- permanent canal. And I'm careful. But I still go. And New Orleans is still safe the perception is that it might not be safe but you know what we're talking about is also violence that happened in. And a suburb of Saint Louis. And then what apparently happened. This drive by shooting among the violent acts that took place over the weekend are involved drugs. And it's. -- this is what bothers me most about all of its. Is people who are seeking revenge or retaliation. Over a drug deal or a girl or some kind of feud. Or territory. Or being disrespect it. None of those reasons or reason to shoot some. But what amazes me is the lack of respect for innocent people. In a cry out. Innocent people were shot and killed. Not just the person who into acceptance the person who's the target. Isn't the one who see it. We hear about this birthday party gatherings how cowardly do you have to be. To target somebody at somebody's birthday party. And obviously a lot of these people are not very good shots they're not good and they don't have good name. Too many innocent end and everybody's innocent until proven guilty so I'm not saying that that the death of the person they're seeking revenge against. It is justified. I think about how unjustified ideas for innocent people to be enjoying themselves. And and somebody has an argument with somebody else. There's a shooting. And they end -- debt. And it's just the -- the lack of that's what scares me how inhumane. You must be part in mind. How inhumane you must be. In order to just shoot at somebody and not really care about the innocent people around quite often children. There are solutions to every problem. So what's the solution to this problem. It's. A deep problem. And there's -- long term solution. But it is also a short term solution. So what are we doing the short term what do we do in the long term. It's something we need to talk about until we find answers and so far. There have not been any good answers and I'm not trying to exaggerate the decline that we've had because you can stated that crime is down. But that doesn't matter to the people who were shot and killed -- for the weekend. And this this. Recent attitude of again I'm just I'm so bothered by the ideas that somebody is targeted in a cramped. And the people who are targeting somebody -- care. I mean that's how. That's how emotionally dead. They must be inside. If you enjoyed our show with a comic tonight our numbers 2601870. Tool free. 86688. Nines here which simply a text -- -- 78 cents.

Who have babies for the purpose of getting money from the government. It doesn't mean that everybody like that isn't a good parent. And it doesn't mean that there aren't we talked about this quite often there are a lot of wealthy families there are wealthy people who aren't good parents -- So this is something that transcends socio economic boundaries this is not just inner city problems.

And they shouldn't be shocked me they're not deny children were -- they were shot. There are critical condition and let's let's pray for. It's. Why of people you know I know we we talk about this it's almost a rhetorical question we continue to talk about the news. But until -- really start to figure out what the answer is I think we need to continue to talk about. Why are people so quick to use guns. And why -- people so quick to just. Target somebody in a crowd like at a birthday party Europe by a gathering of some kind you don't have the courage to face that person face to face he got to shoot them. In a crowd. From -- a change -- WL. I commend my favorite movie of all time and -- -- favorite movies is probably and Jeff Bridges and the Fisher king. Yes a lot of people haven't seen it quick synopsis for those who have and a shock jock EJ makes at all in remark on the air sparks a tragedy. A person listening to show and goes and shoots up but Manhattan bar. And the DJ gets fired down low he's about to commit suicide in -- in out from the depths clocks. Robin Williams plays an acre and a kind of street urged and the ball.

Obstacle or -- -- tangible obstacle to having your in your life -- it was collected slaying of the red night it was. It was again it was a it was facing and overcoming tremendous obstacle. And need and a little bit competence and his life centers like step he would see the red light and and it was a mental battle for themselves. And two people that needed each other from different walks of life each other help each other. And the could be you know your -- uplifting and I can never describe the movie to anyone has it made me laugh it a crime scared rural. And now expression was social media these days off and remark by radio DJ called a spark is because I was looking for. I guess well through the radio so payroll. And it's so it's a lot to do that the shooting and things are today and so some people are so on and it's. Socially outsider. Networks and sort of getting out there and and and in which you were saying earlier about though what. Too cheap to to get into the minds of these people would just rather go sure somebody it's like there's not enough work well enough research done. And especially. Or someone as despondent posted.

I got the surgery -- sit there and now I'm wondering. You know if if there was any visit because this statement that he made when he made it in and and -- which you say about. Where. James -- which stands out in my mind about Meade Robin Williams and interviewing him. What was this other side of him this was 1987 when the movie club paradise that came out to -- Los Angeles and -- here and -- earlier in the show. And he was funny it was crazy -- it's on my hair which was really long at the time he made fun of me and I I made fun of my hair I thought that was what was funny India that really crazy side. But then I talked to him about Robin Williams the person. What is it about him that people don't know that he'd like -- to now. That they just don't understand about him. He talked about this very sensitive side. He talked about. This slowly side. And I have told many friends that were going through difficult times that. The loneliness that I've ever felt. In my life. Which -- I was around people. And supposed to be happy. But -- really inside. Very lonely. And some of the happy -- Times have been when I have been totally alone.

So many great movies and and it's so many of the movies that there was comedy but there was also a serious side and that was the brilliance. A somebody like -- Robin Williams and I'm thinking about Steve Martin. Has that ability to notice a comedian but then became a serious actor.

He was dealing with that very deep depression. And it's a very very serious. Illness it's a very silly serious condition of the brain and if you know somebody who is depressed there there are a lot of things you can do to get help. Medically and emotionally.
