This is John Hancock. Are there other friends that I hear on Martin Luther King Day as we can be. We get a can't pay for this so. Size that we're gonna play RO part of the a dream speech we do that every year we normally play Sam Cooke change gonna come. Always a world. The sticky with our tradition or by good demand good weekend. Ready for the cold weather all over again. Should be here tomorrow. Into Wednesday morning possibility of some snow but I don't think they're expecting no accumulation actually have a the original forecast. And what we have now was a little bit of a lighter version but nonetheless. You tired of the deep freeze those of you moved here for the weather. To Chile. And will stay pretty chilly and also we get into the weekend if you make it to the weekend Saturdays upper fifties Sunday low sixties. So when you add that to the weather we've had you get into upper fifties low sixties. In retrospect it kind of feels. Pretty nice. I think it probably is pretty nice actually it did low sixties the middle of July wouldn't. That you were true. So other go on all that. NFL divisional playoffs yesterday. We were two for two from our pixel note Friday. And I picked Atlanta they lost to Philadelphia I picked the patriots they won. Beat Tennessee. I picked Jacksonville. They beat the Steelers. Get a big bin clover was like 500 yards or 600 you are so like that's five touchdowns what was it. And still lose the game how do you do that you have great. Like portals wouldn't too shabby either. Anyway I and then numb we had picked the states. And they'll look real good there are right up until all the. Last second. Literally that was just unbelievable. Arm and I and I feel for. Well I feel a lot more for Marcus Williams today if you wanted to neural insane and Bernadette to headline in the newspaper about owning us. That somehow or another puts a dent in my sentiment. So I guess an actual real bed for the saints today. And so much for the NFC south everybody can now go home and we'll see you next year. I do feel bad for Marcus Williams. It is pretty of CO we're down to whether or nor Owens. Newspaper. Just kind of see what the reaction there was and he's getting a wave of support from a former NFL players and fans and observers saw. Just our personal level above and beyond a football rivalries and all that. He's a rookie safety he had six interceptions this year he's part of the reasons that the you know saints are so much better this year than they were last year their defense actually is. I'm pretty phenomenal and he's one of the reasons why and I don't know if you if you buy the explanation that he had been told by his coach not to. Even running a risk of interference. Look to me like he went for us to take a guys legs out from underneath him and closed his eyes as he went for him that's sort of what collector may but. But he missed the tackle and now Stephon digs though walked into the end zone as time expired in the vikings win the game and it was just the most amazing ending. Until the vikings are still alive to host the Super Bowl think it's an hour another beat the Eagles in Philadelphia. This next weekend. And no one said there have been I think what they say eight teams have had a shot to maybe post their own Super Bowl but nobody's ever done before. But pretty good games are pretty have been a pretty darn good dinner games effect. You'd you don't have except for the patriots beating the titans. Every scorer was. Was close within a school or the other. And you know offers a while when I thought Atlanta was gonna pull it off. So wamp. They re go to go to the New Orleans no law NO LA dot com if you want to go to the same section and you can see what people are saying but essentially they're saying when his team lose as a team. And he's getting all sorts of former players are chime and and enough. Harry Connick and some of their Kirk or Kirk herb street road hang in there are Ed baby magic got 32. It great rookie year learn from this ski growing. When this group loses a group you've had a blood. So off to those that was all about that a Keith Jackson died over the weekend. He was. He and burn Lundqvist to me work college. Football and I probably shouldn't even mention burn Lundqvist in the same breath as Keith Jackson because he just was Florida had. I'm. The man. But to accused Jackson passed away over the weekend and that was just for a few weeks after we lost to convert. Saw as a long time and my mom the other day not necessarily about this but I was saying you know I'm I'm at the stage in my life my mom's and ninety's now on. And I am now we're talking about it I mean she lives in May. It is it's a senior. Up apartment dingy stuff assisted living should be good yeah. But she was saying Mel sudden you know you go down to the cafeteria and you notice that you haven't seen somebody you know while in new say hey whatever happened to so and so and also know they moved out a lot of cases that means they've moved on to a different. An area of care or. Russia haven't seen. Jim and lasted a few weeks so underwent all Jim passed away last Thursday. And I told my mama so yeah I mean even its stage in my life for a mug on a more funerals and I am weddings ago. Com and I'll watch and I'll a lot of the people that were beat keynote. Names of my generation of my growing up the link that my dad and I had together people that we. That there were in their prime when I was a kid. Watching sporting events with my dad and stuff and keys to. Actually would have fallen into that to a category. So why he was 89 years old and he just had a remarkable life from remarkable career and he just had that voice and he was a Georgia native so we kinda had that down home southern. I charm to him. So rom. They wait eight CO HC's Keith Jackson's the world stepping off to the other side but you know what the next generational have their voices. The people that they grow up with the and and so that's then that's just kind of the way it the kind of the way it works. So Martin Luther King Day well let's talk a little bit about Martin Luther King note today of some good stuff in the paper today and no play the last six minutes of the dream my speech from the Lincoln Memorial and we'll do that probably next we'll. Well back to Mississippi. Back to Alabama go back to South Carolina go back to Georgia go back to Louisiana brought back. Through the slums and get to all the run moments it is. Knowing that somehow this situation. Can and will be changed. Man does not want my and the value of this crap. I say do you. Looked a bit my friend. So even though. We face a difficult it is hard today and tomorrow. I still have a dream. Yeah it's. A dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream. But one day. This nation will drive up.

And saying you know that I've been called negro spiritual free at map three at math but bottom line is we. A crowded just about. Everything that we just aired their low what was really a sixteen and half minute to almost seventy minute speech. And other president today in the gas and gazette. Beginning their editorial piece are just about or we started that recording. And so as I listened to it today I don't follow along. And read the words this is he spoke the words. And and and I think Dario went to the same dissertation last year. But. That's an old speech. I think Kennedy was quoted as saying was he not in a room someplace. And he saw that and he said to the rest of the people in the room. That guy's pretty good. A deck I was pretty good he was so are the radar doors of our own lifetime. There are things that you may or may not know about the king dream speech we'll talk about that it was so pointed out the US dated dated today I think I've heard most of it but not all of it but other parts of them were pretty interest and and we also have a tendency over here you love to play Sam Cooke. On this Martin Luther King Day every year or change is gonna come so although we'll take care of that as well so. We are happy to be here on Martin Luther King Day news 1110993. WB tapes. For the last six minutes of podium Martin Luther King I have a dream speech. When he took to the lectern and on that march day fifty years ago. And it has been fifty years ago now. This year April I think march April. The tax he had in his hand did not contain the words I have a dream. Now he had doesn't. A facsimile of the dream speech several times before so it's not like he pulled it out of the hat. But he did got to pull it out of the hat that is not the speech that he would planned on giving. To be improvised and on the spot. And as I've followed along the words today as we play the recording a few moments ago. If for no other reason. Just. To deliver. That powerful speech. Improvised. I'm impressed just as a just as a person knew load them loans people who can do that who can put the right words in the right order at the right time for the right reasons. In March wasn't king's first use of the dream. Speech. He they came actually to regret that phrase. About the top by the time he had died. And that speech had faded from public memory. It was his death that really brought that speech back to the forefront. He spoke on August the 48 1963. At the biggest most important civil rights demonstration in American history. And it was at the heart of the civil rights movement. And anybody that is in there in my age group that was alive for that particular period of time. John F. Kennedy of Bobby Kennedy Martin Luther King they're assassinations. The civil rights movement The Beatles. Eight and the Vietnam War. I am is it was a heck of a time don't. Just to and especially. 1963 I was eleven. So you were starting to kind of be aware of things I go I was raised by a Goldwater Republican my dad. Some and and so I was very familiar and I don't I've talked drug Goodman many times about my mom putting the bomb shelter in the basement of our house during the Cuban missile crisis. So I was I was aware of the Kennedy. I'm presidency and my dad's opposition to his. Points of view and. OK I'm eleven. My girlfriend got beatle cards all over her blue wall of her bedroom. I was allowed in her bedroom then because at eleven. I would even try to get a kiss back in those days you know I just did your girlfriend. Somebody I can hold ends with walking down the hall. Pretty innocent time. Kennedy spoke on. On that day. The most important civil rights demonstration in American history. Eight years after the anti segregation Montgomery bus boycott. Three years after the lunch counter sit ins in Nashville and Greensboro. Two years after the first freedom rides on nine interstate buses through the south three months after police in Birmingham Alabama horrified the nation by using attack dogs and fire hoses against women and children. Pro testing segregated public facilities. About 250000. People are on the National Mall. They're there to demand jobs and freedom. Including a passage of civil rights bill. Kennedy are scared me king employed the phrase is the I have a dream phrase. And the oratory it framed a week earlier in Chicago two months earlier at a mass rally in Detroit several other times in the previous year or so. But he hadn't planned on using it that day. Drew Hansen author of the dream book about the speech. Said that between 1963 in 1968. Bethpage which largely forgotten. First because of the crush of the events and later as kings earlier optimism began to seem somewhat ill founded. And that he became more controversial. Especially in his opposition to the war. King's assassination on April 4 1968. Led to the Nash added to the nation to rediscover that speech. But that's speech almost didn't happen. And if king had not improvised as he did that day you would not have happened. On the day of the march. More than two thirds. Of African Americans. We didn't call on African Americans then. Lacked the right to vote. Attend integrated schools. Or use the same public facilities is whites. I don't feel like an old guy. But I'm old enough to have seen. Restrooms in water fountains that were marked appropriately. Or inappropriately I guess I would. King's movement finally had made the civil rights. The nation's top domestic policy issue and that's summer would see 11122. Civil rights demonstrations around the country and about 20000 arrest. Obviously almost all of them in the south. And then on the Wednesday morning at the march. Washington. Was pretty tense about things cops everywhere. The crowd gathers at the Washington monument and they marched to the Lincoln Memorial. And king not even 35 years old was the last one to speak. And millions watched on TV and all three networks could cut away from regular programming. So that means the whole world was watching. And king began reading from a typed text. Any invoke those words. Of the president whose likeness loomed in the background. Five score years ago king said. The emancipation proclamation. Came as a joyous daybreak. To end of the long night of the slaves captivity. Hundred years later he said the negro still is not free. The promises of Lincoln's proclamation the constitution and declaration of independence were like a bad check and now he said. We're here to cash it. And after ten minutes he was more than halfway through. The speech he had planned to get out. That had been well received but was as Kennedy biographer ours are king biographer Taylor Branch would write far from a historic. And king looked up and put aside his text. And apparently. Saw an opportunity. Now king rarely spoke from a text. And apparently rumor. Legend has it that the my Haley a Jackson who performed earlier. In group wanna king's favorite gospel singers. Cried out at some point tellem about the dream Marten. Whether you heard better not I guess nobody really knows. But apparently he did. And he said. Improvising from his original text I say to you today my friends that even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow. I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream it is a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its create. We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal. He raised his voice. To be heard over the growing applause and he repeated the refrain seven more times. Moving from justice and equality just something deeper. Human bond of transcending race. He said I have a dream that someday in the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together. At the table of brotherhood. And he went on to talk about Alabama little black boys a little black girls will be able to join hands a little white boys and white girls. Ans as sisters and Brothers. I have a dream today. And then he suddenly. Returned to the speech that he would. Left lying unread at the lectern for the last line. Free at last free at last. Thank god almighty. We are free laughed. So he created technically that masterpiece. On the fly. And the march ended peacefully. And not a single marcher was arrested. And Kennedy met the leaders. Ed dubbed the march at the White House. And he walked into the cabin or room. Any look at king and he said. I have a dream. And three months later Kennedy was dead and Lyndon Johnson. Rammed the Civil Rights Act through a previously. When receptive congress. By saying it was the best way. To honor the fallen president. So there you go a little background to the background. It's your off today this volume pretty good day to have off it is supposed to be the unhappy this day of the year. Monday January the fifteenth the unhappy this day of the year told blue Monday AA expert and seasonal disorders first identified January is the most stressful month. And now there's a formula that works out to other worst day of the year and it happens to be a this year. Monday January the fifteenth. The formula takes into hotel lousy weather. Debts owed after the holidays in the amount of time that you before you abandon your New Year's resolutions. Now we're the fifteenth how many people Marty. Trump canned there. Not resolutions. The buzz over the weekend anonymous comments to the observer of the paper from time to time. Taunt Charlotte everybody needs to pony up so Felix who bought us can make some real money. I have solicit me an email over the weekend. New and sent out here that they'll land out there by the sale barn yard flea market on our route 51. Is potential new site for panther stadium in Dallas say a report that had come at a red murky up wc and sega's tomorrow play last week you know want. I'm spam Byrd was talking about it on the morning show. But there sure as there are set 220 acres of farmland sit right their belongs to a guy by the name of Jim Miller who I just happens to be area. A panther fans. And there's some speculation right there on the South Carolina line. Apparently it was in play originally. Owned before they decided they had to have the up down thing but to it was gonna be called state lined stadium. Sits right on the line. But it's got it's got the acreage that you would need so that you could day have 20000. Parking spaces out there and the owner of the team would be able to. To capitalize on the revenue from all 20000 of those parking spaces and that's gone on. The shortfall that they are Panthers situation has compared death. Now some of the other stadiums all the hallmarks of the playoffs last night. And you you know I mean Minnesota's got there are new deal. But you know much in Pittsburg and watches some of these other places and a command or whatever thirtieth thing about Pittsburgh having to have a new stadium. May because I don't live in Pittsburgh but there seems to be an awful lot of stadiums out there that are doing just fine. And as they had asked. Stamberg if he got the Super Bowl and you got the final four and you got that. Ten biggest concert draws and they're not play in stadiums anymore but let's say that comes back. If you got all of that would that pay for the difference of a billion dollars in the stadium you have now on the stadium that they'd wanna build and the answer is no. Now obviously having a Super Bowl here would be advantageous to the city's rapid nose or and so forth. But it certain did did did having the Super Bowl turned Jacksonville and do away new Mecca. Know. So I don't know I kind of discount I understand that that's it's all gonna come up and that's what's gonna happen and. They're gonna fleece the the citizens and the taxpayer and and the resources of the city because. Or why shouldn't it. That's gonna paid two point eight billion dollars for the team is gonna have to fleeced somebody. But. But the idea that we absolutely positively have to have a new stadium I just think is. I understand that it means more revenue for the owner. But I also understand the owner is all about the owner he's not necessarily about the fans and if you don't believe that asked Jerry Richardson if you're PSL longer what happens to your PS cells that they build a new stadium and how much she cares. And the answer is probably not a whole lot. Anyway the other blows that I saw that came through was Feyerick trump tower whose Pitt started that. They did have a fire truck to our not too long ago so I thought that was so. I thought that was a pretty funny so all this cold weather does that now mean that there will be fewer mosquitoes next summer have you thought of that off. You look at the bright side you're trying to find the so ignored doesn't. Much of the United States says still experiencing cold weather we're going through another about a cold weather we can even see some snow by tomorrow night into Wednesday morning. Not to love not to any serious accumulation but. I mean I wouldn't start trying to find the slow but. But we may see some. So does so putting up with colds doesn't mean that there will be fewer mosquitoes comes summer according to Susan Pasco which the chair of the department of entomology at the University of Wisconsin Madison she says. Not necessarily. Pass again you are get through this. They're going to make it because they have experienced these kinds of conditions before. They don't get wiped out. Maybe you'll get a little suppression of ticks but does she said Woolsey. You also adds that most of the bugs are likely to make it. Though it's going to depend a lot on the factors including know what insects are in your area how cold it gets where you live and know whether or not Q I get a lot of snow. I don't know if it's because were in between maintenance crews are not that I was noticing on my way out here on Friday in the lower part of our building. That's where the cockroaches didn't show up from dive dive you'll see him play and on their little backs down there are sometimes still running in place. And on my way out of the door I've noticed like three album on the floor and I never see that. So I don't know if that's a sign of cold weather or the outside of we're in between maintenance crews. The go go with the maintenance crews. We always played this remark with a few days we've been through this. Up the back kitty improvised the last half of it so it's. Please Sam yeah. ABC. Okay. Man. Okay. New. Jay you all com. Well. We're. Okay. Okay. OK. In new. Yeah. I. Okay. Love yeah. We're. Okay. Okay. Okay. Okay. Champ car com. Which is one of the guys is to come to Charlotte back in the day and stay with rocket regulating who went into the WBT hall of fame along with the Henry voter myself this last year. And didn't know I knew rock and ray well. But I don't know that I knew all of the legendary people that when they came to town this data raise house or do you find about ray's house or you'd walk in to raise living room and you know Otis Redding would be sitting there. I knew we knew home I didn't know that he knew. Tim Cook. So I'll let me ask you kind of a personal question would you rather hang out with your dog genuine your friends. It. If you have a dog owning a friend to us that have been a flake and out on you all know when you have plans they could be doing a bang out what their dog. There's a new study 2000 dog owners found that it's a common. We more than half a blue admitting to sometimes skipping social events to spend that time with their pet instead. So much less pressure. And it's less expensive. I need to get dog had to go potty they're pretty much happy. Now you can't dig a friend out to go potty just a million that they got have a beer and again Sunday evening they wanna go I you know chase chicks are an area that's gonna get on. Let's go football game wants us dead and had them dog and never go are all that. They are mangled body of Mattel we're out there and done. Checkbook. Never touched. Steady from Smart dog collar creator link eight keys AKC. Also found that 60% of their dog often takes care of them in some way with many saying that they talk to their dog like they or friend. And that their pet helped them get over break up or handle the death of a loved one. Unconditional love was named the biggest benefit of dog ownership. By a 55% of them followed by constant companionship. And 88% of their dog made them male better person. So there you go. If you're one of those who from time to time. This flight down on your friends. To spend time with your dog. You're not alone. There's a kind of a side story on this Martin Luther King Day which really has nothing to do with Martin Luther King Day although they timed it to. Do have a protest on Bartlett or king day a lot of Americans are working today. And others are protesting a work that they describe as slave labor. This is from the guardian reporting an unusual protest organized by prisoners. In the state of Florida. That kicked off today in the primary agreements. Is that they're forced to work. And pay nothing. Not even the nominal fifteen cents an hour that some prisoners and other a bad day and that is a C and some other states. Sit down in Florida of their us seeking a fair wage and hope to arrive. At the end via a monthlong operation push. During which they plan to not show up for their work assignments. Does that give ago. You you're not gonna be real tough to find. Prisoners said to stay record our goal is to make the governor realize. That it will cost. The state of Florida millions of dollars daily. To contract outside companies to come in and cook clean and handle the maintenance. This will cause a total breakdown. As for those millions the intercept. Which reports at least eight prisons have inmates who plan to participate in the protest. Notes that in addition to the work being done in the prisons community work squads blog to three point 15 million hours of work about 38 million dollars worth. And which included hurricane earned a clean up throughout the state in 27 team. Now. I don't know I got my first thought was how much does it cost is substantial. How much does it cost to keep these. Gentlemen. Incarcerated. And the personnel that it takes to. Keep them incarcerated incarcerated. And medical. And food and and housing but so to speak. 50000 bucks a year for an inmate or some I mean I'm just pulled that out of my butt. It's something along those lines when you when you into when you rooted in to put everything in there so long. So I don't know if you know maybe they ought to basically throw those numbers back at them enough and see how they. And then the other part of that is. They didn't hire you. You've got to demanded. It that you be under their. You couldn't go live under the the laws of the land so we are. Yeah that's kind of your own damn fault but that's who you ended up. Quote unquote working for. Well I had a big time in Hawaii over the weekend. Can you imagine. I mean have you seen the tapes of people. This is the stupidest thing I've ever heard and a first for the first thing I saw. Kind of heard a rumor about it. The golf tournament Charles Howell the third eating breakfast in a hotel and restaurant. And everybody. Had their phones. And were receiving the same push message and the push mentioned that everybody was getting a Hawaiian was. Ballistic missile threat inbounded. To Hawaii seek immediate shelter this is not a drill. And for 38 minutes. They were led to believe that this was a reality. Although. The truth was known within a few moments. Apparently it took two clicks of a mouse for this human error to interpreted. All the alarms went off at the same time Powell said he got everybody's attention I didn't know what to do we all stared at each other kind of shows you the world we live in right now your whole life can. Change in the second. That push alert turned out to be a mistake a human mistake early morning emergency alert mistakenly warned of an incoming ballistic. Missile attack. Dispatched to cell phones across Hawaii who's gotta be a little tense because of North Korea right now anyway. Saying off widespread panic in a state that already is on high emotional alert because of the tensions between the United States and Kim Jon Gruden. Officials recalled the alert about 38 minutes after it was issued. The outrage was a media. Officials said that the alert resulted from a human error and was not the work of hackers Soro federal government to or anything along those slides at no time. Was there any indication of a nuclear attack. That had been no launched on the United States are Hawaii. The alert went out at 8:10 AM. Lighted up a lighting up phones ballistic missile threat inbound to Hawaii seek immediate shelter this is not a drill people flocked to shelters if they can find one. Crowded highways in no scenes of terror. And helplessness. I was running through all the scenarios in my head but there was nowhere to go nowhere to pull over said Mike has to ask your retired a military captured. Human error is to blame. US military is in charge of detecting ballistic missile launches and maintains a complex and integrated network of sensors and detection capabilities in the Pacific to follow a missile activity. Eight network that has been improved in recent years. Missile launches are detected immediately by satellites that notice the end of the inferred signature of a launch pad. The detection triggers an instant Strategic Command or scrapped come access asked not to process. The assessment looks at where the launch is the potential type of missile the trajectory. The opera GB distance and the potential targets the of the path of the missile. Talk military commanders join a conference call with the top priority being to decide whether the missile as a threat to the United States or its allies. If the missile is a threat to the president's brought in response to decisions are made NORAD. Strapped com intelligence agencies the National Security Council involved in the decision making even if the missiles not a threat the president usually gets notified. Quickly. While missiles are still in flight. United States has not had to make a direct military response. To recent North Korea launches because it's been assessed they posed no threat to the United States if they did. Missiles on ships in the Pacific or other land based missiles could be launched to try to shoot down the incoming missile. The military shares all tracking and verification with civilian authorities. Hawaii's emergency management system relies on the military because it does not have detection capability of its own. Why has a three component emergency notification system the first part of the system is that outdoor warning sirens sound. At one minute attention alert signals. At the same time the emergency alert system. We use Hawaii's broadcast industry cable TV wireless cable and send an emergency message that type of system is used would like AMBER Alert Toro weather emergencies. In the case of a real emergency. Two pieces would be a joined by alerts of the wireless emergency alert system Saturday the wireless emergency alert system and the emergency alert system are used to warn of a false missile threat but there were no reports of sirens going off in the state. Human error. Caused the false alarm. It was a mistake made during a standard procedure at the changeover of a shift. And employees. Pushed the wrong button. The warning went out to cell phones television and radio. And it took them 38 minutes. Although there was a senator from Hawaii that had. The answer a lot faster than that and and ended tweeted out false alarm. But the powers that be 38 minutes. Before they finally. You. We're able to say a second emergency alert stating no incoming missile was sent to those same phones. In Hawaii. 38 minutes of sheer terror. Oh and acceptable. It clearly it's Danica Patrick is confirmed she's dating Aaron Rodgers. And they do all in my bed. I'm here because. Really both had time. Dan Gurney died racing legend first race car driver to achieve wins in Formula One and NASCAR and Indy one of the most revered and accomplish figures in motor sports history had died yesterday Sunday he was 86 years old. And read the news today oh boy coming up and just have to shake you know we also may you know the auto show has started out there in Detroit which is always an interesting time muddy car of the year the SUV in the year of the truck of the year those mauled and announced so we'll look.

Unless you go in there on a Monday night have a great steak and then go back on a Friday and can't understand why are costs so much moron you have been met but hey that's your problem and I. Okay cool man I. So. Here's a news channels up byline on their TV stations are by his word about the death could deal. This president came out I was over the weekend and today I know I'm not gonna happen Democrats don't want it. And and the government shut down we go we got that till the nineteenth and then that's looming. And those are just great stories for MSNBC and and fox and CNN to get all fixated about Nelson fill time. But. We still got days before the deadlines on those things. This is all part of the negotiation progress this is a president who negotiates hard all the way down to the last second. And I'll betcha the government doesn't set down an omission that something happens in regards to deck and if not immediately they'll be a bridge that'll get us to something. Too many people in this country want to deck a dealer happened I want some sort of protection for all those people. It would be political suicide in some way or another to not appeal is all the people in this country don't want to have Betsy that happened with president not just gonna give him four days before the deals all up. If we get as much as he can. And put people on as much. Egg shells as he can get before they finally got to come up with some sort of a solution. So you can now get fixated on all of this right now if you want to but. This is kind of like that New Orleans Minnesota game. Does Merlin looked really good for Minnesota right now.

Seven billion. 444443881. A one point 07%. Increase since last January 1. Adding about 78 point 52 million people for the world's population. But in the US we should add one person about every eighteen seconds. Based on one birth every eight seconds one death every ten seconds and one international migrant net.

When I see the Grammy nominees. I used to know all of that stuff. I have no idea who they are now. Now I looked through award presentations just to find names I may know.

Annual Detroit auto show is underway. This always makes sugar reading if your car enthusiasts at all all warrior in the market for a car you're thinking about buying a prominent simpler in my life because at some point or another. I don't know in the next three years all by a new car. And then that probably will be my retirement car. In other words no other I retired three years or five years or whatever the case may be that's probably the Carl have gone into retirement or not cut school and that means all that's probably Karl stay with for a long long time so my thinking changes I'm not looking for flashy and immoral to for reliable. An and quite frankly I gotta tell you that Honda Accord has been on my mind recently because I'll discuss such a great long term track record in the accords big unit would be great recruiters and under some manner cruise and up to new Yorker. Although I am for awhile there I was driving revolts like in the slot. Which are never one to suspected me giving. But I was doing commercials for a boat bull Toyota dealership at one point and not thoroughly enjoyed the facade. And bill Harry engine and didn't 290 horsepower so like that and here's a great freeway car. Well I was looking at they are on the annual Detroit auto show winners. Car of the year. Honda Accord. The runners up were the Toyota Camry. And the Kia stare. Now that's another bottle a car that's kind of interesting Kia. First place they advertise all lot. And second place every now and then you'll see a car on TV and you think wow what is that and then you find out it's a Kia. I'm not inclined to wanna buy Kia. But maybe that's change. The SUV of beer. Is the Volvo X C sixty. I never even what I thought about it I'll probably at least now go take a look at that's followed by the Honda Odyssey and then the Alfa Romeo. Still be O. And something tells me L for a male may not be it might very strange. And the truck of the year organ to a just abject. So 457. Know 1110. Detroit auto show is under way we have an annual look tradition to ask you what are you drive and why are you driving now and I'm drive and a am decode I one MI drive ends. Canyon pickup truck. GMC. Why I didn't go with the Chevy Colorado which is essentially the same damn truck I don't know I should be driving a Colorado. I did it because they know ward Williams over it. The Gypsy shop over on a south boulevard known and says he and his dad were run in the Folger Buick you know stuff solo. Because got a better deal. And GMC. Tends to have a a few extras on non. But every time I look at a Colorado pickup truck present eleven I drive the Colorado just makes too much history. I got a truck when I traded in my viable target us not because. I moved guest in county and know its own law that would view moved guessing carrier don't turn. So I really had no choice. I think I'm supposed to drill hole in my muffler to know make it as loud as possible pickups the next but I vein I haven't been pulled over for having to quieter truck you know I'm just waiting. MS looked up front response on that. Yeah so I can iGoogle like keep it nice for awhile until I. Basically take got hammered over like one of the fenders and puts in front response on. And now how long before I put the confederate flag in the back bed. It should be done this year yet it. So up car of the year according to the Detroit auto show is the Honda Accord runners up Toyota Camry and the key is stinger. SUV of the year the Volvo X C sixty. And the runners up the Honda Odyssey and the Alfa Romeo still feel. And the truck of the year which is desk and TJ about this is the Lincoln Navigator. But I would've thought that was an SUV event I guess I don't know what I'm talking about so that has a bed and there's one other runners up is the Ford Expedition and I would've thought that was a huge great big old. SUV two but that's got to bed and until. Not much of one but solved. And the Chevrolet Colorado ZR two which is their big I pollutants four wheel drive. They've got a couple special edition Chevrolet Colorado said come out since I bought my big canyon and I probably will look more closely at some. Pretty good look at stuff. But anyway those old school pick up trucks remain hot sellers says sales were up on pickup trucks four point 8% and a 2017 and I don't think all of those people moved guest and counting. So what do you drive. And why 704571110. No Americans are warming up to spending money on cars and trucks. We're not that the bid their cars and trucks are flying off the lots but the ones that are coming off the lots. According to the consumer auto site Edmunds dot com reports that we are spending a record amount of money on average to buy new vehicles. Web site estimates that the average transition prize on a new vehicle was 36495. Dollars. I do remember this look thousand years ago when I was a kid. Chevrolet corvettes. Were sold for 101000 bucks. 101000. Dollars and at the time you thought oh my god who would pay 101000 dollars for a car. That was about the time you were saying the day cigarettes get to a dollar pact that's when I'm gonna quit. For a while. Transition price average of a new vehicle now 36495. Dollars in December which is a 3% increased over the average. Up from a year ago and a 13% increase compared to December Bakken 2012. Edmunds analyst Jessica Caldwell explained there are fewer buyers on the market right now but those who are out there or not only are feeling confident but they're willing to shell out the extra cash to get the larger vehicle with a all the bells and whistles. I'm more interest in the big ol' Larry engine. The canyon I'm drive and I think is 309 horsepower 300 than ten horsepower something like that. Sold I'm not race and it. But I just like to fumble and out of our shoppers that are on trying to get around somebody before I go through the new to narrow bridge over their you know between Mecklenburg Gaston County you know wanted to.
