Join Scoot as he brings you his ever popular Top 8 @ 8.
A tweet about a United Airlines gate agent refusing to allow 3 girls, one 10, to board a flight wearing leggings exploded on social media and is now a mainstream media controversy. The girls were flying on a pass from a United Airlines employee and the dress code for “pass travelers” is stricter than other passengers. Do you consider leggings inappropriate?
Do you think the extremes are destroying their positions or do you applaud them for their unrelenting positions?
The extremes represented by The Freedom Caucus in Washington, D.C. and Take ‘Em Down NOLA may be destroying their own positions.
President Donald Trump and GOP leaders pulled their "Obamacare" repeal bill off the House floor Friday after it became clear the measure would fail badly. Does this reflect badly on the Republicans?

Good evening and welcome to our show on this Tuesday night you heard that the the -- Stanley has welcomed into a new member of baby girl we've got the pictures on our website at WW dot com. As we -- showed tonight I want to personally thank all of you who. Voted for me I was really shocked and surprised to see this is quite an honor. Voted for me to be among the the top three best radio hosts in New Orleans in doing gambit -- best of a series on it was really not that the weird that it was going on so I'm I'm truly honored. -- toughest Morse was number one Garland Robinette is -- tie for number two and two my -- number -- so thank you very much. It's time for tonight's trending topic today to hear that top trending -- things -- like you know was we begin our show tonight. -- VW well number eight. We talked last night about Miley Cyrus winning the MTV music video awards for this disorder where people -- for the -- Initially had this twenty year old homeless person give her acceptance speech. And he was promoting. People to do something about the homeless people in in Los Angeles and across the country. While the 42 year old Jesse helped. Who made the speech is what it. Is ordered an org. He was arrested on charges of criminal mischief and criminal trespass. In 2010. He was eighteen years old the arrest was issued on November the November of 2011. And when he violated probation he moved to Los Angeles. Not long after the arrest and tried to find work as a model. So authorities now say that as soon as they find and they're going to arrest him. I guess at this point he -- a great deal of thanks to Miley Cyrus number seven tonight's list of the top eight at eight. -- hot hand -- sponsor at Colorado state Health Department. Is attracting some criticism for marijuana activist in those who support the recreational use of marijuana. They tag line in the anti pot campaign is. Don't be a lab rat. When Colorado school district is refusing to display a human sized cage which is used in the campaign. Now his campaign is obviously suggesting that. By allowing the use of of pot for recreational purposes in the state of Colorado they're turning human beings in two. -- -- Now the bolt of Elliott school district says that it will not participate school officials say they don't believe the lab rat cage is an effective display for twelve to fifteen year old. About -- potential. Dangers the campaign is being paid for biopharmaceutical settlement funds that raises awareness for substance abuse. You know if if any. State Department in any state if if if any medical research needs to be done. On the long terms effect the long term effects of marijuana on the human body. I say you study willing -- number six on tonight's list the top needed eight. Audio allegedly. -- the actual shooting of eighteen year old Michael Brown in Ferguson Missouri. A man was recording an on line chat with the French when the shooting is allegedly heard in the background I've heard the video I mean I heard the Gaudio and their perhaps she -- well it's it's video. Of this guy having this this chat but it's it's audio and in the background. The -- the family ordered autopsy shows that Michael Brown was shot six times but this new audio reveals. That he was shot about ten times with pauses between the rallies. What's and what's interesting about this is that six shots can be heard. Anderson. A definite pause. And then more shots ring out. And I I you know I guess this is going to assist and support whatever your opinion already years I don't know that this is revealing any new information those who believe that he wished. Shot and fairly fine what'd they need to find in this to interpret that this means that he he was indeed shot and didn't need to be shot. And in those who arm automatically defending the police officer -- Wilson. They'll say well see this does point out that there was -- anyway what's interesting about this is both sides are going to find what they need to find in this new audio. To support what they believe neither side really looking for the truth now there are a lot of people who are looking for the truth. But there are still far too many in this country who aren't looking for the truth they're looking for. Things that support what they want to have happened. Number five on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. -- -- -- Emmy Awards were presented breaking bad in modern family were among the huge winners and it was kind of a repeat of last year's Emmys. -- -- great that we we have some serious things to talk about tonight but let's also talk about your your favorite TV shows -- a -- to discuss Charlotte talk about something -- something lighter. Is there -- current TV show that you watch every week. I have to admit that there's -- -- -- there's there's not a current TV show that I watch. It every week. Maybe I guess it's partly due to the fact that it assignment filling it and I about it worked this could show -- to midnight so I'm not at home went primetime shows are on. And I don't really have an appointment to watch a show every week there was a time in my life and I would sit down and watch. How's that was an example the show recently that I I had to make it hard to watch I would watch house every week. And there have been other shows as well assigned felt it was sent when it was on the year Frazier what was on the air. Friends at the time difference which popular -- that must must see Thursday night TV on NBC. But I make absolutely no appointment to watch any show I don't even off I had the ability to. To DVR stuff. Even if I have that ability so it's not something that I do. But are there any current TV shows in Europe a fan of -- the Big Bang theory I guess that's one of the shows. -- what are the popular TV shows that you're making an appointment to watch. Every week. In fact they're so important to you. But you'll actually turned to show off to watch this to TV -- during prime time. And is there -- still that's now in reruns. That you tend to watch every day. I have to admit for me it's Frazier. That means it's all wanna get off the year at midnight it's only get -- and it's it's a great -- relaxed too I think it is just brilliantly brilliantly written. Seinfeld. Used to be my all time favorite and I I still love Seinfeld. But Frazier has now kind of taken over my my favorite show and -- so. Among the lighter things -- talk about tonight will be the -- current TV show what current TV -- do you make an appointment to watch every week. And what show is now in -- that you tend to watch every day. If you would join us with a -- are numbers 260187. Toll free 8668890. Point 78. At a text -- is -- 77. -- for tonight's list of the top eight at eight. -- in this country over the huge salaries of CEOs. What about the huge salaries of celebrities. And professional athletes are they paid too much. And if there's outrage over the huge salaries -- CEOs should also be equal outrage. Over what celebrities and athletes are paid. And what does this say about our society if teachers. Police officers. And firefighters. Are paid as little as they are while celebrities are paid as much as they're paid and professional athletes as well. I mean it's unfair. In in in terms of thought I guess in terms of morals and if that's one way to put -- it's it's it's unfair. -- in terms of our free enterprise capitalistic society. Is it fair. And the staff of the Big Bang theory that the -- is now back to work getting ready for their hour long eighth season premiere. September the sectors are coming a pretty soon. Now there was a big controversy in years ago win the cast -- signed failed. Got a contract that paid them eight outside the pay them. A hunt and paid him one million dollars each one million dollars each per episode. May just think about it that's that's a million dollars a week. You know -- in production. The million dollars -- since it was -- that was popular that was says. It was a major a contract breakthrough -- -- remember years ago during cheers it was a big controversy of how much -- Ted Danson was demanding to dance it was demanding I think 400000. Episode. And that was huge at the time and a cycle comes along and each cast member received a million dollars per episode. You ready for this. The stars of the Big Bang theory. Has now negotiated a new three year contract. It will pay each of them at least. Ninety. Million. Over the next few years. Ninety million over the next few years. They get one million dollars in salary per episode and an increase in the return from syndication rights. To the series. Is it too much. Well think about this for CBS over there admitted to ten seasons the shows on the year. It's going to generate even paying even paying all these salaries it's gonna still generate. At least a billion dollars in revenue. And possibly even twice that much. Is that fair now it's unfair. But I think we learned very early in our allies that that life isn't fair. Is this just part of the free enterprise system that area occasionally people will say well celebrities are worth it. Professional athletes aren't worth all that money. But. They're worth it if they generate enough money in the same way to CEOs generated enough money for the companies they work for isn't that the free enterprise system.

I should there be equal outrage over the salaries of celebrities in the money the professional athletes make. But I don't know how you curtail that it's based on what their worth in the free enterprise system based on what degenerate the money that they generate for a business or for a company. It's not about -- you -- it in the hands somewhat likely going to be Archie. And it again. But -- are very -- from from from a standpoint of being human beings. We have created a society.

Every week you look forward to it or watch a TV show in reruns now that you tend to watch every day. -- -- -- mention the Walton I mention I could never watch the -- and it was just too -- medal. I had to distance myself even as a young person I did distance myself from really sad sentiment will show us. So -- also tonight talk about the TV shows that you could not watch. Because they were either -- sand. Or just too stupid. Our numbers 2601870. -- free 866. 889 series having -- is a 7870. Also Burger King appears to be making him a plan to buy him a smaller company in Canada so they can move to Canada. Because Burger King -- corporation pays about 35% in taxes in America. They will apparently pay about 15% in taxes -- Canada here's a WW a pretty general opinion poll tonight. If an American business moved to another country to avoid higher taxes here. Is that unpatriotic. We're Smart. Right now 53% say it's marked 47% say it's unpatriotic. It was shipping by going to our web site WW dot com and there's a call for boycott of Burger King will you boycott.

I have to warn you every year for schools -- we goat to. You know meetings were forced to sorts lays out the rules and Eric singer -- Marc -- concern that this is. You know this young man is. Possibly become a victim of circumstance. When the rules were laid out before his school years border. And that may have been a -- to address. The concern. For the uniformity is fair. Problem. Thought you know I'm -- at that point about it in the way were missing school it is. Advantageous. To. It should I guess there's a couple of things to discuss here first of all -- should the school -- to have any kind of a dress code that involved -- air land which which in effect when I was in high school and I I didn't think it was spirited like it but I had to abide by it. And then if they do have a dress code should somebody based on religious principles be allowed to break the trust. I think that if you agree to go to host Indy. Institution. That this clearly stated the rules. You need to abide by the rules. It is a touchy subject -- not agree or disagree one other but I know that there's rules and I don't agree with it. When our children's sports too. But apple that those -- in what is Paramount. Is there education. Okay. So. The rules yes may need to be changed masters on either. We and that child is -- screw it it is kind of mock concern you know. Our rules that would columnist who agree with -- -- problems to a rude about it like either. Express myself that way. Tidbit there at the time -- we know you could challenge the system the way people challenge the system today. We we went along with the roles. And I agree but it is the time the challenge a lot of child who now he's mr. and -- screw. You know in the time that sound a lot he's disk do or should you take -- -- The challenge be in and what -- young man pressure on the -- great season high school did you take it. On the back Carter allowed in the go to school put its Sarah -- -- prep -- say it -- therapy. And challenge the rule on them on you know the backside. And maybe the next school year ago to an agreement. She unit that you bring up -- good point I'm going to took time to a -- shown thanks for listening at night. Here's a text about TV shows house of cards on Netflix best show ever had you know what I need to I need to sign up for Netflix. Here's another tax about a TV show Arrested Development. Here's another when America gets dumber as they watch the Kardashians. Can't and won't watch it and that's from Jeff. Yeah I can't -- -- I've never I don't understand I don't get it. Watt who aren't.

I ten eastbound is being diverted to 510 after the bullet exit westbound lanes are open coming in. For slight -- if -- stay where -- this is the schoolchildren were coming right back. I let's get right back to your calls from New Orleans east Rico you're on the -- show on WW -- There is Google -- and I have well but kind of formal comment. -- the celebrity's. I think you know but he gave operator you'd pay too much. There's outrage in this country over the big salaries of CEOs went about the big salaries of celebrities and professional athletes. Yeah I'm. I'm not obligated to pay I mean it in a way it should bother what could have been in position to their money. It would take it when you have teachers that underpaid. Comment and a policeman in army and police were especially on the that could be from a regional -- you know. Other groups there's two guys -- kilometers. Do you got frustrated -- -- you know he could be got a bit frustrated or anything on me if you pay these people -- what they're told to pay them a ball. -- I don't know if you're it would -- about if you think about the role that teachers and police officers and firefighters have paid in play in our our our society and and you think about. The role that celebrities and professional athletes playing you think about the the pay differential. It it it doesn't make logical sense but that's the way our society is built. Yeah I mean what do you think. Cook could be done so 44 you know five minutes -- simply to me go to let -- get some some you know dictate. Probably too you know Olympic at least it did get what they were you know visited. -- -- pretty well. I would think the first thing Victor it could happen would be the Department of Education could find ways to stop spending so much money stop wasting money on on bureaucratic maneuvers in and just. Bureaucracy BS. And and pay teachers more -- I think the money is there it's just it's just -- recall and have to get to a news break here are really appreciate you calling as far as firefighters and police officers -- are concerned. We have to look at ourselves as a society -- say OK what can we do. To make sure they're paid more because in a lot of ways the superstars in a society are not paid like real superstars. And those that well they're just there for entertainment. They get paid the big bucks if you're on hold be patient stay would decide scoot over coming right back after the noose on WWO.
