There I wouldn't have so many dates to remember in my life. But. I am very little say in us. So I anyway that's that's my plans for the weekend is to hang around a maternity ward. Yes. Although it's just down the street from. Cantina fifty elevenths under can be a taco or you're in my just for substances to it'd be able to survive. May have to go get me talk over ore to.

So sign me please please stand. You know how many news but I know this song. Love is blind. Blue moon again and the. Okay me. Even scared me. Remains to me. I've so we got the apology on tape last night and nine at. It seemed a sincere and so low. Very don't. TJ I'll put this out on the WBT page yesterday. We talk a little bit about the rock and roll hall of fame nominee is. And TJ put on the Billy VT dot com FaceBook page show what do you think of Cameron's comments to the Cheryl observers senator Jordan Rodrigue yesterday this is before the apology I suppose when you put that up to. Hi and just some selection response we have becoming a nation of vote over sensitive crybaby Wallace's who are looking for reasons to be offended. Dale said people are too thin skinned these days. Mike Wright says unbelievable what this country has become you can take and needed the flag in the media Lohse you make a joke in the media hates you. Stansted if cam wants respect he should also give respect to those along the way his words would not be acceptable in most places of work around the country. Germs and can't stand the guy but. He did capital letters nothing wrong. America has gone softer we have don't we have bigger things to think about all we don't like flight. OK okay so there's still little nuclear problem with with Korea North Korea buried. That's. Don't cable there's twenty trillion dollars in debt but. OK so we have a propensity to like to kill each other with their guns. Stuff. Cars knives. Kindness. Billy Joseph cook said this article offends me. George said I think he meant funny as and weird or strange not ha ha funny. And that was kind of his reaction kind of a funny reaction not. Hah hah funny. But weird strange. And Eric netter said. No more interviews are you. The man. Stern re servicing agent or 85 did name and guest in time. Yeah it is just. Solid good idea and all of us. It's getting gave they're gonna actually screw up traffic court. With road work. They need to figure out exactly did that. Quirk in the road or whatever it is is Tony 726. Or causes so many people director of AD do go ahead just to have serious screw up traffic loads about we fix that. Think had always true midterm room coming down 85 from the mountains or something hours Federer remembered our. Check that out 'cause I'd die take exit Torre seven. And I always forget but I I think he goes from four lanes to three lanes or something in there but it just it's just every. I mean if there's a problem on 85 there's a let us 71%. Chance it's gonna be one of those two intersections. I'm sure new pavement well help. BO smooth Iraq. I'm Nate is on its way actually we got another system besides Nate that is gonna be responsible for some boring you know we're gonna see this weekend and so on. I'm Nate heading towards the Gulf Coast. But he's not the only system that will bring rain to to the Charlotte area natives and already the Gulf of Mexico and he was originally expected to kind of make a beeline for New Orleans after. Cross need to have potential souls or bodies Baird a little bit to the right so at this point I think they're thinking maybe more Biloxi. A Mississippi know only time I ever remember being Robin and blocks a couple times since for the first time I was ever in Biloxi they had some hurricane that went through there. And I was still fresh Colorado boy so be it in Mississippi was. Was it Alabama defense they've tripped. So I and I never bend Alabama or Mississippi or Georgia I don't think. This would have been thirty years ago. But I have stayed at a holiday end right there on the golf in Biloxi Mississippi and right down the road for most they had a twisted bridge gave an old dusty old. Iron bridge. Then had been it twisted by the power of the hurricane. And I am always remembered them. And then we are nighttime signal we've gotten. Calls from Biloxi. That Kennedy Cuba. So Biloxi is might be were Nate decides to come on board but it's only supposed to be a category one I say only a category one. And then you have rain forecast for western North Carolina most of today. But if it's fearing a little bit to the right then that would probably mean more got a little bit more rain than what we have and to some believe anticipated originally. So they think rain could start to pick up in the Charlotte area on Saturday evening and don't you know the folks out there in Charlotte motor speedway are thrilled about all of this because the race there is at 2 o'clock on Sunday afternoon which is supposed to be. Not a good time for a for decent weather. And you can't just look at the weather forecast and say OK or move in the raced a Saturday. Because it'd you know there's too many people that are coming from zero distances and menus can do that so. I anyway out of Louisiana Mississippi Alabama all kind of on no on alert for this category one hurricane may assume it'll have that status by the time that its landfall sometime early Sunday. And then rain is forecast for us. Throughout the day on Sunday and into Monday and then we got a frontal boundary. That oil absorb name its remnants and so we should probably see some light rain continuing on Tuesday which is actually more rain that I need for the duration but. This speech last year when we air raided and and win nine and a half weeks of nothing. Except nineties. Or eighties. But anyway are your weekend plans. Get him out of the way early nod tomorrow morning here's the decision to dead the komen race for the cure. But they should be fine as far as I can save their zone get started early in the morning and and no Pollard be pretty much wrapped up by the time noon rolls around so while. So they've Beijing should be good they're did you know that Monday is Columbus Day. So what post office will not be delivering mail. On Monday. Your trash pickup will be on a regular schedule your. Libraries will be closed your schools. Charlotte Mecklenburg schools. Pretty big TJ and we'll open. Did they not dead decide to keep them open or close among Martin Luther King. Become a few years ago. Well in my remembering that we had them open one of Martin Luther King holiday and frivolity ensued and. You know I'm not to have been underway schools are are open on a Monday for Columbus Day and they should be. Does that we determined that Columbus was. Oh sure there was the Nina the Pinto in the center ribbon of one to Leif Ericsson have basically. It discover New York City. Gay men of Beatles replaying the cavern club. Cavern club was in New York suitor. I'm term treasury gets to restrict. Paul Simon was in Central Park. And Art Garfunkel was so signing autographs a bit bags whether or not your bank will be opener not on Monday a wolf very. So bomb Hillary go on there your today don't know whether Europe today I don't know what's open what's closed unknown Monday federal offices are closed a state offices are open ABC's stores. Okay. Why don't. Why don't liquor stores have liked. Well I'm in Memorial Day itself like that we have like white sales and noticed that the other right. Furniture sales and mattress sales and stuff like that why you it would seem to meet the Columbus Day the most worthless so called holiday of the year a year that done liquor store should have some sort of a you know that would be noted. Liquor store sales kind of become. And a national trend. It didn't think in a lot of very you know I'm indebted to what did does Columbus have a favorite drink. Think you're bigger be around rum and Coke. Basically about Columbus was you I had all those three ships and they were all filled with the animals. Two of every kind I had. Oh you're crazy I must restrict. I'll most Americans think that refusing to stand for the National Anthem is disrespectful to the country. The military. And the American flag and but most also disapprove of the president's calling for NFL players to be a fired for refusing to take a stand yesterday. Walter. And we never got to yesterday I don't orasure parts are with you today because Walter Williams is good is an interest in Ryder. Ended any rate he's also African American he's a professor of economics at George Mason University. And and his take on players protesting. Police shootings he says they've got tunnel vision so we'll share that with you Romeo Communist justice and come back in the second. Problem. This Paul we were just talking about 52% of Americans disapprove of the protest 31% proof. 55%. Disapprove and 31% approve of trump calling four NFL team owners to fire players who refused to stand. And missile stun you African Americans are far more likely to approve the player protests. So I knew that that would be up. And is that the Camden as things over right. I mean surely UK should be. I he's apologized. She's apologized. Your reaction from columnist throughout the nation has been kind of interesting I'll share some of that with whom we come back as well solo. Reaction cam Newton's apology from the rest of the nation. And no Walter. Animals are infusion maybe just animals and one ship maybe that was it. The media the teams and and then no Maria the hallmark. Walter Williams professor of economics George Mason University African American. Columnist. Has his point of view on the players protesting the police shootings will see that again this weekend to what to a degree it was lesser than was sort of last week and there was a weekend before. The weekend before we're following the president's comments weren't we went over 200 protests and in last year was our last week was little bit more manageable and the week before that you had about six. Last year he had. Colin camper American a handful of other players. And and there are protesting. Racial disparity. Racial equality everywhere. Prison. Walter Williams has lost a lot of few numbers so we can put in perspective the NFL players taking a knee during the playing of the National Anthem many say the protest against racial discrimination we might ask. A much sense their protest makes. Part of the Washington Post says Walter Williams 737. People have been shot and killed by police to this year in the United States 737. People shot and killed by police. In the United States this year. Oh that number 329. Were white 165. Were black 112 or Hispanics 24 members of other races 107. Whose race was unknown. In Illinois. One of the most dangerous cities in Chicago. Eighteen people have been shot and killed by police this year in the city itself police have shot and killed ten people and shot and wounded ten others. Somebody should ask the kneeling black NFL football players why they are protesting this kind of killing in the windy city and ignoring the other sources of black death and here's the Chicago numbers. For the ignored deaths so far into what he's seventeen there have been 533. Murders in Chicago. 2880. Shootings. And on average a person who shot every two hours and seventeen minutes and murdered every twelve and a half hours. In 2016. When camper next started taking a knee Chicago witnessed 806 murders and 4379. Shootings. Those are numbers that are just hard to fathom. Even for a city the size of Chicago. Most murder victims are black says Walter Williams. And adding to the tragedy is the fact that Chicago has a twelve point 7% murder clearance rate that means when a black person has murdered. His perpetrate or is found and charged with his murder. Less then 13%. Of the time. Similar statistics regarding police killing blacks vs blacks killing black supply and many of our predominately black urban senator she points out Philadelphia Baltimore new moral and Saint Louis and Oakland. He said seeing as these players have made no open protests against the thousands of blacks being murdered and maimed by blacks. They must view it as trivial and compared today compares him with a police killings. Most of the police killings fit into the category of justifiable. Homicide. So while three Williams says NFL players are not by themselves. How much condemnation do plaque Paul black politicians civil rights leaders and liberal whites give to the wanton black homicides in our cities. When have you heard them condemning the very low clearance rate whereby most black murderers get away with murder. And what's to blame for this mayhem and if you ask an intellectual oral leftist or an academic says Walter Williams in this aside cycle it. Sociological or fellow psychological department. He will tell you that it is caused by poverty discrimination and a lack of opportunities but the black murder rate another crime statistics in the 1940s in the 1950s were not nearly as high as they are now. And we had less black poverty during the earlier periods than we do today. He says some police are crooked. But some don't but not black people are likelier to be victims of violent confrontation with collection police officers then why it simply because blacks commit more violent crimes then why it's per capita. Any concludes by saying something good is about to be done about it. We cannot fall prey to the blame games that black politicians black NFL players. Civil rights leaders and white liberals. A water play if their vision is accepted we can expect a little improvement in the status quo. Now a lot of what Walter. But I never have quite understood why. The black on black crime rates. Are discussed more. When AI I don't care or big big big you know I I guess I keep on telling myself that it's probably just a stereo type or it's probably just. I'm primed to say it it's probably the media. The sensationalized. Television. Stations that we have here. That makes me feel like every time there's seems to be my shooting. 90% of the time it's black. But. Every time there's a shooting. 90% of the time it seems to be blacked. Black on black until you've got assault they you've got a guy address that too. Now I understand that the riots that happened here a year ago last September were bug way of people waving their arms talking about it listen there are neighborhoods here where there is no hope. There are there is mentality here and neighborhoods here. Where the most successful guy in the neighborhood is drug deal or gang member or some along those lines so I mean worse somebody supposed to find a role model in that neighborhood. You look for the guy who's got the most money the nicest car the prettiest girl friend or whatever the case. So I don't I don't have the answer to all of that but until we really start putting out. True statistics like Walter Williams seems to be able to and comfortable with doing. Then we can have all these conversations. That we keep on having every time we have these conversations. But Intel we can actually start sprout the truth. And in deal with the real issues. And lack of fathers. And everything else that goes into the equation and then the conversations are just for conversation sake they're not for. Advancing the narrative. They way I. I like Walter Williams Larry Moe lot and I very rarely you know quarter of stuff but I just founded. Interesting and probably in part because it is an African American writing about African Americans. Well and statistics that we seem to be uncomfortable and bringing up but probably need to be at the forefront of our. Much needed. Conversations. Because I know where they stand first today believe he's a road and on is that Houston Astros over the Boston Red Sox must be pretty happy so far. We'll get him back again nymex Friday 430 I read the news today oh boy 5 o'clock we'll kick off the big weekend lot of stuff going on this week new image and Bank of America 500. And you've got the komen race for the cure. And and I'm sure the people of the bank of red they additional motor speedway or watch in the weather and send now come and but you don't than you do about that. Two Jerry we go on WBT hey Jerry. They're very dead Americans are you did. You. I'll know what they're targeted think you have art the Republican bloc really proud bit flat out Republicans for their rather. Our I read some of what all went up along that almost sold Larry Elder. He does it that you public. The predominant that would have added that the senate that look at baby but no one group got pop up that. Think we ought to it will battered but they'll build up the permit he had poverty and all of the baby you're going to be you. I don't know if you've ever are really didn't hear out state government. I can't think better about my most talented. But the ultimate goal that bothered Auckland and that's what good that you know there are other great patriot get a life people I know my mother. You cannot keep you probably out of it now here are that money. And I'll be delicate. Well I'm an order. And no one of the down falls on and they know what's going on with the national bowling or stuff like that right now as it continues a distrust of the police and I and I get better and I understand than a lot of the whole pry profile shootings we've seen none no TV and stuff like that don't don't help that either. But the silence in the black community is not helping police solve crimes is to serve. Absolutely when not if but we haven't they won't know why it happened or don't do it but it won't cooperate with the police you have to go all of that didn't. It didn't yeah Barney but they're bad man and I don't get it. I went out all of my belt loop about the dollar goes down the person that I need you know I'm The Who and how do come back. I'm supporting market covered it quite good god what the army. We have an exotic. Probably better received from you that it is like somebody for me you don't like this guy in America you know exactly you're you're ignoring the problem. Yeah now it. Today and I didn't come from there you know so I mean what Doyle what the hell can I possibly know. And our political course and I don't know what anybody expect me about that single father of thought. We need to be able to probably keep our daughter. I'll do behave like what do you think black orbit aren't you get back to delegate and nobody would expect you to know that you know there are obviously but thought he didn't. Good people good good Americans get that at this. Let me you know how to who beat Oklahoma and I'll think but Obama. I don't think it'd be deported back therapy and yet if you don't stop it up and deputy. All they thought Nevada got great support from not being ignored who have looked great I think. But then how did a very important role in game didn't import car. I felt bad I've come here today that you've got them. Pretty bad. All right thanks you know I guy's got I don't think you can discount the lack of fatherhood. In an awful lot of fairways. It's amazing what kind of an impact my dad had on me and how much are fought against him. On and how it sold for a good part of the first 181920. Years. How much I thought I hated it. But now look back and now see the foundation. That you old that he set for me. On and the reason I and become an alcoholic. Is because the foundation that he set for me and the reason that I and become a drug addict even though I did drugs is because of the foundation that he set for me and the reason that I have via. The faith. And based. Views that I have is because the foundation that he set for me. And and the reason I have so much respect for him is that. He was able to grow more towards me as I got older. And I was therefore more able to grow towards him as. We grew older. And so by the time that he passed. We had he had gained respect for me and I can gain respect for him and through that process. Com. Solidifies the foundation that he tried to set form. Really we're all all alone. So I there's no discounting. The presence of a father. A good father. Here in the whole equation either. Wolfpack beat Louisville last night. They candidates Florida's daily lives we prepare last. But Ivan winds and little federal role going on there are good for them. It's about time state better. Process and Benson as I say that they'll be stating he had no and brought me you know it's like LSU did. Blues to Troy your season. Source of the lord but sister. So my first got here in 99. And obviously read predominant answering North Carolina and so I don't know if Summers another rebel proud because David Thompson was from North Carolina State and Thompson became our Denver rocket man may -- came to Denver Nuggets but. So I kind of got to know David Thompson just a little bit out in Denver younger Red Robin hamburger place and I used coming to the station I worked out to do commercials and and I got to know David Thompson hero we should have him on again. He lost his wife fourth in the last year. And no that was one of you know she was she was with him Mo we know. We knew he was one of the top players in the NBA in anywhere on his demise and she Jews within the whole world. And I just always have a lot of respect for that relationship and he's. He's an unbelievably humbled guys. And decent guy. Arm and still probably the best player that the ACC ever has saying. Saw him. But anyway it's summer is another I guess says since I. You did that that was the closest relationship I had to anybody that ever came to the ACC. So I can became a state Fam. But I mean is just say I don't care when where the other is there have been just as a casual observer fan. State hasn't really given your whole reason there. You don't go out by the Jersey's garden. Like they're. Like look though the wolf I like the moniker the but good for them be Louisville last night and that was a Lamar Jackson. What we have three home run our three home runs three. We're eager John. 354. Yards 26 for 47. Passing or who has a like three touchdowns. So he played pretty well. I Cam Newton apologize for his remarks. Which means that not only the people Charlotte learned how to pronounce her last name but sort of the entire nation including the UK I might add does the other side of the pondered Daily Mail was covering the story as well. So last night when he did his salary is apology. You know he pretty much apologize to women everywhere. Everywhere worldwide. And I thought is analogy about raising two daughters was a good run. And I didn't quite understand the next sentence being is loss of sponsors. And he's only lost one Ryan that we know off. But nonetheless I still think it was so and I mean this would all due respect to. Female sports reporters and. And not and and anybody that striving to. Be a legitimate and credible and their careers. And she does and and she works hard and and this didn't turn out to be really very boondoggle it could have for her because one of her and discrepancies comes enough from a few years ago to a so instead of being able to. Totally you wallow in the increased name recognition. If she's if she's got me embarrassed by. Now by her own. Shortcomings as well. Saw others are probably a lot of lessons to be learned a mirror and then one of a ms. Stay pos tour Kirk. I understand why so many people have to gaga how many people get killed and you're on tour. Thank god the president's not on to. So mom. Sally Jenkins. Sportswriter. Journalist. Kind of picks up the Scott Fowler thing Amy yesterday was. Totally. In. Support of vote Jordan regain. Called new and remarks inexcusable and ill informed and and document in her sports journalism background and how she came to be. Interest in sports in Boise straightened her her time in Arizona and above all law. And she is only 25 years old but she's remarkably. Well versed in the game and if you read her this year. You are picked up on now. You can you can tell somebody who does their homework. If you pay attention. Sally Jenkins picks up on the theme. What kind of a sarcasm and feel a sarcastic you're confused or Washington Post op Ed in which is to suggest that they gender culture exchange maybe would take place with the quarterback. She says quote in the name or gender diplomacy I would help Cam Newton with certain feminine concepts of how to use the twist toppled a bottle of beer. And why some men act like football strategy is more complicated than a space flight guidance system. In other words what she's basically saying is Kim. Football isn't rocket science. But. With that said. It's not just. It is pretty intricate. And yeah I mean I not if you understand the game matters like anything else. But I mean I'll listen to Eugene Robinson. Bring up points during the broadcast here on WBT. And he talks about this technique in that technique and so on and so forth and it's not just going out on the field and play in football it is about. Stand in your lanes and and men and good and and and doing what the coaches tell you to do all. On and not swaying away from Ari you're supposed to be an assignment and so it's also there is an art and an intelligence factor to playing the game. But no it's not rocket science and and to do it and and so we cam and everybody else should understand that if he can understand is so can other people. Maybe even a 25 year old female. If if she's dedicated herself to. And attempted to study and learning. So that's what does Sally Jenkins kind of general writes she said issued under a hundred tries so hard to master anger in the next bar she strides quote. We women who cover the NFL have spent years hiding our impatience dealing with the average quarterbacks with below average verbal skills close quote. That's a pretty good shot. New York Daily News Christie accurate. At Kurt. Says Newton quote should have known better. And she said there are days or comments were infuriating but she also accepts his apology and says so we can all learn to be better. Christine Brennan. Hopes there is some good to come out of all of this she says riding in the USA today she notes the dead silence on the panther interview room mostly filled with male reporters she notes. After. Newton's comments the other veteran regain. Followed by all the noise is quote unquote on no social media later and now she said quote the reaction as day heartening. Was as hardening as it was eye popping. And then she continues as says to give props to the NFL and the two companies that do represented including Gannon who dumped him. For their quick response to addressing him down so anyway that's the reaction. They apologies come through. Armed. And I you know I had to some extent I hope for all intents and purposes. That it's done. That would that we move on to something else and I think that for purely selfish reasons because quite frankly we've got out fairly important game against a Detroit. Who I in Detroit. Who's. Whose defense stand to seem to suck as betters the patriots. Although they beat Tampa Bay last night. On the road. So I thought that was so that was good. I hell's apparently frozen over the horrific shooting in Las Vegas put the spotlight on the Second Amendment and now we've talked about that as the week has gone on. I'm more specifically it is placed a spotlight on these. Legal. And devices. Which are in hot demand right now that they're getting ready to probably beer regulated. Both stocks. Used by the shooter to turn a semi automatic weapon into an automatic weapon and the NRA yesterday said that it could support. They review a federal regulations and determine whether that particular devices legal or not. They and then that's seen as a way of by shutting down any more expansive debater or legislation on or on a regulation of some types of weapons but. That's that was as I've pretty interesting. Pretty interesting a comment from the National Rifle Association rare break from its. I traditional opposition to gun related regulations saying that. Actually calling. Yesterday for a Federal Reserve is our federal review on so called bumps stocks. And suggesting that new rules might be needed for the device apparently used in by the shooter India Sunday massacre. And as you might expect as soon as that came out and bumps stocks are in high in demand. And and good luck on I know I get your hands on retailers and manufacturers are seeing an apparent surge. In interest of a bump stocks as congress lies a possible crackdown. Slide fire which makes bump stocks announced on its website its suspending new orders. And our message indicated the company's supply is low on another site that sells that sells the company's products and NAM message on line that the device is out of stock and back ordered. So. Anyway that's that's where we go on now one. The other development that is coming out of Las Vegas is that investigators Centrino trying to piece together the actions that led this. This due due the 32 floor of the Las Vegas hotel on a Sunday. And now they've learned a few things Alaska what is he apparently scouted several other locations we talked about this yesterday in Boston and Chicago law localism and before he chose the Las Vegas concert. He had booked rooms in Chicago that would overlook all the balloons the music festival 100000 people donor. And a four day event that attracts. You know hundreds of thousands and about a 100000 usually at any given time. And then he purchased 33 guns in the last year alone. And investigators say that the killer must have had a motive however twisted better remains a mystery for now report that this. And I again I mean that's what do you think it was. If he's brew if we've pretty much discounted. International terrorism and I think we have. And he didn't leave behind any kind of. This is why I did it. Any doesn't have any past record. And he doesn't seem to have any so called beef with any. Then I don't know is it just. Somebody with no real that this didn't report to any higher power than just wanted to go wanted to have. I mean maybe if you believe that there's nothing more than this is yet. As soon as this life is over there you go and says it done. Then what in all what are what is there are two of motivate you to. Live by any kind of a standard. And in that case. You would want to move somehow or another be remembered. I I don't know I'm just speculating but I mean if god told tell me that we can kill sixty people just so there are a name. Recognition would go up. Good evening Kathleen Ferguson near Charlotte Observer. Wrote about the ten oldest restaurants and Charl Louis school time talking about them. And Nash said they have I missed any let me know. And GA news did you at some people that it's a lot of response. Angie says we also encountered a few debates. Beef and bottle. Didn't make the list because diversion on the south boulevard is not the original location or the original name George fine opened up thousands stakes uptown 1958. And then that location. Had to make way for a discovery place. And so he relocated to south boulevard and changed the name to beef bottle 1978. So was that's why that one didn't make the cut. And the other one is Providence Rhode Sundays which is uninteresting are building was a drug store at one time opened about 1933. Had a soda fountain. Have but nobody is really quite sure when the food arrived 191950s. And then even later when it finally became a full service restaurants and that's why that didn't make the list. She said we did learn that are barely held once had a secret room for a high stakes poker. To be just done nominee a little slow nooks and cronies are out there in northeastern Pennsylvania buildings and to drive by every day have no idea what they are their full fledged nightclubs that. And private clubs and there was part of their deal. Allow him and she said we did find you more restaurants that were adding to the list circle G-8. 4818 rivals ferry road been around since 1954. And taps us. Restaurant after the toward 300 block of north Graham street. No both window made the 1969. Cut. I'm off for that ten oldest restaurant so loved it seems to have her original list is say must go to before you get out of Charlotte type deal. Friday October the sixth. 279.

Americans need approximately a hundred acres of pizza each day about 350 slices per second. Pizza is the is 832. Plus billion per year industry. And you wonder why Papa John's and can advertise so much. There are approximately 61269. Pizzeria is in the United States pizza restaurant growth continues to outpace overall restaurant growth. Which I find interesting because I've days due to some extent that you think the pizza novelty is is over. It was a thirty years ago I was in boulder that was when dominoes was really starting to dominate. And no you know I mean and they've been near memory makes their products then better than it is now. And I don't know if that was true or not but it probably wasn't it probably is better now there was that are at least comparable. Although the TV commercials that are playing now makes it look like did that they always made their own crested dominance against. 'cause now they're thrown up there and spin and a new and a whole nine yards so that would tell me that it's not frozen. 93% of Americans eat pizza at least once a month. Each man woman and child in America it's an average of 46 slices of pizza per year. I'm not anymore. We're bringing down America the average down. Approximately three billion pizzas are sold in the United States each year. Children between the ages of three and eleven prefer pizza over all other food groups for lunch and dinner. Which would have included me for a long long time but. Now I'm mature now minority kids who's now I'd just booked on talk shows. Pepperoni America's favorite topping I think that's always been the case and no women are twice as likely as men no order vegetarian topics under featured. Never had banana peppers on nine year vegetarian pizza. Kicks butt. Good stuff anyway happy national pizza month. Radio program. I'll get to the big stuff going on this weekend in just a second well.
