And Dave Cohen at the early edition of WW well for a -- -- that needs that need to. The only reason that anything that is associated with electronic cigarette is because of their name. If there -- called something other than a cigarette and no one would have any problem with them at all. President I'd say it's smoking any cigarette people rise I date and quit smoking using it nonetheless. I'm courteous 1 am when I am out. And I treat them just like regular cigarettes are they just like regular here -- should they be allowed indoors hey what are that the guy next -- work is -- and -- cigarette which you be upset about that shouldn't be allowed in public buildings. It's a debate that rages on no clear answer yet. Are people happier with kids -- without tally with studies say after the 36 minutes after 5 AM it's the early edition of WWL first news -- September 4 at 14 am. It's the day before Friday happy Friday EU EU and -- right at this time tomorrow we will reveal. What David polite it is predict all. Giving your predicts home perfect zone for the saints. Regular season record review mr. justice program note that you've had a lot of success. Predicting what the saints' record would be in fact six of the last seven years you've accurately predicted the exact record the saints went I think -- called lock. A lot of lot of a lot which he had Marla picking lottery numbers you -- survived nonetheless economic any money for the but he gives you bragging. Can you give us any -- any clued into what went into your thinking as you were doing. Well I just -- land before the you know we don't making it easy here you have to go game by game. Through the entire sixteen game schedule an issue go along EC whatsoever like home and wants her way in. -- you kind of you know hem and -- over each individual game and I found it quite difficult. And when it was all said and done at the end I reset it's it's fairly easy it is you know. Throw out a number twelve and former. You know whatever thirteen and three. When you get to the and there's your number and I made. Well like you know this I wasn't very pleased with my final number OK I I was a little concerned that it if it's not a number I would've wished more. This would not wallow okayed it -- -- prediction 24 hours away. Will stay tuned for that. Very interest in this discussion about whether or not people -- happier with kids. War within it sure is you know there's been two recent studies done trying to determine how will you be happier if you have children. Where if you doubt. Bought some people feel like that's their role they were destined to -- they must have children if they don't they feel empty and unfulfilled Abdullah do. Other people can't stand other people's kids it would never wish that upon themselves. Adult one. Children yeah in fact it's pretty evenly split is that early yet write about it on the panel the census figures for women in the United States. 53% of women have at least one child 47%. Never have a -- So that's pretty even an enemy it and do it that's about as close to if you if he's you can get. So which is better one person text and an 87870 says no kids in early life makes you happier. But later life he will be -- If you don't -- so maybe it's that trade our character BRR you've had -- -- obviously I've had -- -- for children are forward gives I had to. And I have to -- and then have them myself my wife did all artwork outlawed jockey part. And I think you would agree with me I don't think there's any doubt about this it's a lot of hard. Work out no doubt this is not this one of the hardest Angel at Purdue but it's also one of the most rewarding. As he'll ever do and I think that's why. This report out of Princeton and Stony Brook universities found that. There's very little difference overall in life satisfaction. For parents verses couples with out kids to blot. It also found that people let children. Have many more very high moments emotionally wonderful moments just that you know yet bursting with happiness are out. But they have just as many. Unbelievable the sad and upsetting moment sitting by the bed when -- sick all advice or reading in and wondering inning in trips to the hospital and all images the expense along we talked about the so the highs and the lows. Are higher and lower for parents. But the middle. It is about the same. So both these studies and one from British university open university. Find not a whole lot of difference but open university and found childless couples were happier with their relationships. That husbands and wives -- -- decades generally get along better than parents do. Well you know you're right off the bat in the you can look at this and so many different ways. Our husband or worse on man which is -- -- that might feel that when the babies born he doesn't get all the attention he was getting. You know almost like a child himself and and that's just one tiny facet of parliament relationship. You know dynamic works text messages coming and it's that and its present case studies -- the universities. And sometimes it grants and yet somebody decides upon them. Aside and -- says -- couples who have never had aides say there happier without children. That's a good point and they don't know. That I walk around like -- that. -- that they used several factors determine how happy people -- and there you go for text mediate 7870s like better with. Are without children thank you David we have to be without you for the next twenty minutes but it will be hard to get at the top of the hour Chris Miller joins us. Fox eight. And DirecTV are feuding as of right now. Doesn't look like people with DirecTV will be able to see. Fox -- broadcast of the saints game on Sunday what does that mean for them to they have to go get rabbit ears and again after go to a sports bar Chris Miller joins us with the latest on that coming up. Alone cars let's go to the pinpoint forecast senate figures. Born and authority about a number of topics to talk about yeah -- hot button issues. He began lately not -- that they came whether people are happier with kids there without it and -- that our retirement should -- cigarettes be allowed were regular cigarettes aren't. So yeah we were burn up. Honestly before I am glad to just do whether we can typically be kind of a hot button issue itself but not quite -- controversial. Campaign especially right now. You've got to cannot visit you've got a few easy days you why in the pinpoint forecast and it because -- forecasted the same -- -- -- -- really it's you know even as we head further to September at this pumpkin spice -- time of year eighties really. What was its fault people it's -- People September they're ready for all you know you are changing colors are pulling out the sweaters. No I wanted to get out yet in the front yard. In my -- you know be right. Right now well if you're hearing is kind of want that transition. If you want it yet it can't force -- -- -- people let me get your pumpkin spice -- days already. And I think that's just -- -- at times yes but it's not feel much like on next couple days of the nineties. And great -- it's like that pretty much teach after you just can't hit it showers and storms. Aren't hot yemen's showers and storms here there today tomorrow. We Saturday Sunday next week until next week I head out take that over anything on on -- and -- and why. Yeah everything in the gulf Caribbean looking gut so -- not that I'm tracking this morning the last of Dolly the remnants of Dolly moving into Mexico's so. -- -- And I like it I love it now wants -- more of -- I sure would like that pumpkin spice latte well right now. Given that another. Month after and it -- about Thanksgiving week. It's definitely even -- Halloween that generally called out. Not having them -- to be cooler yet I'm going to be muggy and sweaty and. You you feel like sounding off and -- the hot topics I just brought -- -- -- -- we're stuck with all those topics well we've -- you know I have four kids US. No I have -- Do you think I'm happier that you're you're happier and make the all sexual ethnic I had four kids I it would not be happy but it works -- yeah. So that's good just like if you had kids probably happy very happy I think it's hard to think what our whole group. It's happier and other group is so individual yet I think that's absolutely not it worked my husband and I we queen personally prefer -- child list on the -- But you know my my brother has a beautiful little girl and I love. Her and get -- or whatever -- again giver back I love kids I just I just don't want to read and you -- how ever I. You know that we -- the people wanted it. And -- about evenly split is the sense of Spears' 53% of women have -- 47% never advocate. Pretty evenly split I guess you're you're probably right. Whatever is best for you -- thank you happy hopefully by yourself well not yet know whether you know. Whether that would make you happier yet but hopefully neither side and that regretting it -- -- people would get -- What it meant at its -- without kids get too late -- Which it and -- that and know what I was at a I don't know but yet you feel pretty strongly one way or the other feel like that is just. Make your. -- -- Texas to navigate them and you're right it was thought that I can quickly. People junior the store -- -- though Elizabeth Colorado -- what was going public with her story about texting and driving opening. That'll stop people from doing it hole yes. She got up hole. Stick through her thigh and Bartok. Wouldn't have to blur out the picture of what looked like -- pretty clear sign traumatic injury while plus it was her naked but probably just saying that it was a so so graphic that they were like -- we we -- -- hole. As a woman did have children and one of her children forgot their saxophone and all -- -- and the fact yes he is running to the school in Colorado bring in the daughter of the saxophone. But she's running late for a meeting as a result she texts the folks at the meeting thing hammer -- a little late. She said grant lot -- -- you end -- not making as she is the voice tax feature. Which -- looked -- to make sure everything was spell right now it's at what she wanted to do and while she was checking it right I am. Am ran right into a guardrail whole stock through the front of her car. Into her thigh through herb products and out the other side and hailing her a bit -- the poll on both sides ticket and hospital remove it. She had dozens and dozens of stitches inside and outside a and I was not hospitals Arctic. Does that -- at her urging yesterday on the Angeles and talked about it he said. If this just makes a few people are here in the story this morning put their phones down their cars at least a few minutes or rarely yet. Maybe we've avoided some kind of major catastrophe that way maybe that's what she's hoping that people will say. You know what may be -- -- this again it it's kind of crazy because she would even think you know people say all I can tax strike and you -- it's like -- -- -- -- I don't want miles an hour I use the voice text and I actually typed the and I just talked into. -- doesn't matter it does not matter. You'd have found period in any you know form like that text in any form is it -- I really try to keep but it just when -- stopped at a red line or something out pull over to -- I've I've done that where I've. Had to answer something or whatever so I'll pull off on the side -- and texts back and get back in and traffic. And I know people insist they're really good bad and elm and do it that would never happen. Again maybe -- people think they can drive. About eleven direct from the pin point forecaster. Football starts said today Indiana now preview of that and much more on the saints and tigers activists. -- next day 7873 people with no kids just watch you miserable people with a presence that I didn't want kids but eventually given my wife we had one.

He's a gold to marry you always look at those rules for some muscles mouth as well so I know he's you'll be good don't -- And a before -- that our group is less ornaments. The saints have also brought back wide receiver Robert Meachem as he was initially let go when the roster was trimmed down to 53. Quarterback Ryan Griffin is also back with the team after making it through waivers unclaimed. -- G four is now on the team's practice squad for the rivalry between -- lacking gold and the dirty birds is one of the best in the NFL. And the saints have had the upper hand of late. New Orleans has come out on top in six of the last seven match ups and Drew Brees was asked why they've been able to dominate. Every time he plays there's like there's there's a lot at -- here you -- your plans for a lot. Now I can think for that brings up the best in us. The NFL regular season gets under way tonight in Seattle as the Seahawks host the Packers defensive end Julius Peppers joined Green Bay this offseason as a free agent that says they're going to -- Seattle they are gonna let Seattle dictate how they play defense. Hopefully. I'll formation of us on this yeah. Whatever become modern movement just to we're not gonna change what we do for him to -- of the victims.
