Just as easy -- is as easy David spell that -- sure -- never quite. Mr. Aziz who's never written the word. SI never -- -- Tucker wrote that word before an. It does make me chuckle that the elected in there are certain liberals out there horse trying trying to circle the wagons around Rolling Stone and trying to. Explain it to understand it trying to excuse this in the inexcusable. And they say things like this is the -- on Abraham in the globe today. She defends it and can't get outraged over -- it doesn't make. Him anymore sympathetic figure. Well they sure do try that Avon if you read the store I assumed she didn't read it to Boston's it doesn't make him. It's 111000 how many words Kirk I was 111288. And and you make a great he made a great point 111200. Navy words none of which are Martin riches of the crystal Cameron who's -- -- -- name they matter not a Louise blue room on the right -- Lucy Lu -- is Lindsay Lou Lindsay. The names of the victims Jeff Bowman none of the victims' names are in the story. They don't even only 111000 word they don't waste or heard a Joker 900 different ways they refer to Martin Richards not at all it is. 111000 -- attempt to. Make this mass murderer sympathetic so she's absolutely. Not even tell you truth right -- you -- is that none of this none of what we witnessed yesterday or read last night. As has changed her. Disdain for this guy. She says it doesn't make him any more sympathetic -- -- that she's a much stronger person and I read this I feel sorry for well first of all if that's true evil on the and they failed because they pride. They try they devoted this at this issue to making more sympathetic -- -- she writes it doesn't tell us anything we don't already know.

She learned a lot of them I mean. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- You learned a lot I mean it's nauseating it's sickening I -- -- talk show host in this town yesterday said I'm sort of stuff he says I didn't know until I read the Rolling Stone article. That he wrote stuff on the inside of the -- -- -- I swear to god. Somebody a talk show yes not some caller no halt almost. That was evidence hot it was in the it was statement was I don't care that he wrote this. On the side of the boat. They introduce part of the boat. As evidence of course are in -- -- as evidence. And confession and it'll be really cool the next day to pick up the paper or get from the -- rules announces. That's. No hold the newspaper -- extra extra extra read all about you buy one yet dubious sketch of the ball and on that chunk of that if he got a casino actually picture the evidence -- get c.'s sketch. Of the bloody words on the side of the ball if you're a prosecutor is there anything that you would lust after war. -- a written confession. Yet the hurt right now at a riding in the plot not -- -- -- -- is that. Talk about it -- don't have written and what that would lead me. We really should just go ahead to the penalty phase yet and selflessness and yes I mean it's skip reading it's like Bulger is and soreness I mean it's great drama for the you know. People who actually get a low number and get in the court to -- Billable hours billable to us and with the ones paying and of course of this bill that bulge his case and in Jesus case so you didn't learn the idea wrote. On the boat I don't analysts are edited sorry you don't have to live at its. He actually -- -- All of it and it was -- it was -- via affiliate. Columns. I find it amazing that out in -- one of the Boston Globe I mean their cheese drug defendants say you don't learn anything new. Did you go it would mean I think the thing was an absolute piece of garbage and absolute outrage to stewards were in the cover but. Mueller a lot. Lot super chill yeah it's super channel. I learned that -- harsh friends worry diverse group of kids from both the wealthier and horror sections of Cambridge. They were as one Cambridge parent told me the good kids the debate champs. The varsity athlete the student government types. A few -- -- who would go off to a New England colleges. -- diligent student. Joseph Hart talked about attending Brandeis. And tops.

He's not a got a vibe with -- malicious they saw it as smooth as Affleck has said that at the center. Is this pretty smooth -- like I do think. You your charge did he tell me when you wanna get to this might take might take my take away I -- hole. This I have this this story from the we didn't pay for we pretend that you could do that yes no no decent human being nobody -- Rawlings to pay for it and it. Obviously stores decent stores are gonna sell it but. You can print them out you can read it and if you think we're kidding if you think I'm being overly emotional. Give to give a read given a glance. It is more sickening more nauseating than the covers the -- assault element that cover photo is nauseating the story. Is an 111000. Word attempt to make you feel song yes. Historically DNC page of the odds are good idea DNC page check it out you -- -- -- to. Go to be Rolling Stone website on the DNC page check it out and if you don't wanna read all 111250. Words you fifty to -- a -- -- thousand to 58. Didn't have space for Martin Richardson -- and -- yet I can give you I can give you in a nutshell. The sense that they want to portray the feeling this one I -- expression the tone and tenor right 111000 words is asphalt. People in Cambridge spot of the nineteen year old Joseph cars -- the -- -- to veterans. As a beautiful. -- haired boy. With a gentle demeanor. Soulful brown -- And the kind of shot I laid back manner that made him to dude you can always just vibe where he had been the captain of the Cambridge -- -- wrestling team for two years. And a promising student he was also quote just a normal American kid as his friends described him who likes soccer hip pop. Girls upsets over the Walking Dead and the game of -- smoked copious amounts of -- Joseph -- had earned a scholarship. To the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. I was thinking about becoming an engineer a nurse or maybe a dentist his focus changed all the time. They were Muslim yes but you're also American especially -- became a naturalized citizen on September 11. 2012. -- a deeply fractured boy lay under that the -- a witness to all of his family's attempts and he better life. As well as their deep bitterness when those efforts failed. And their dreams proved unattainable. As each small disappointment war on his family -- ripping them apart it also further join our own -- integration. A series of quiet yet powerful body punches no once off thing. I knew this kid he was a good kids at his wrestling coach and apparently also will monster. Skip the sparks it's laugh outlawed line we'll get to just a second. I -- you about his diverse groups different. Jim does as his friends called him -- -- pumas had a great three point shot. A diligent student he was nominated to the National Honor Society that saw four year old -- Yvonne Abraham the gloves that you don't learn anything yeah you just list of like a dozen things right I think that dale Ellis is you know we had a good three now. But not Ray -- I'll just finish with this diligent student nominated in the National Honor Society joined the wrestling team he was one of those kids who was just a natural. He was a supportive teammate who endured grueling workouts and runs with -- single complaint. In his junior year the team made them the captain by then everyone knew him as your car which is teammates which agreement matches to ensure the rest. Would never missed pronounces the name. See I'm coming around ansari on Abraham you're you're stronger willed person that I -- are coming around on this -- Janet right I think he would set up like a mother. We Jessica module c'mon did everything to breastfeed him in this story what you what she basically did was when it comes down to she talked to a bunch of his friends knew from high school yes in a wrestling coach who loved him. It did this thing to blast to a three page this story basically -- -- and -- booster stuff. And get Brooks that publicity stuff but to suggest I heard what no really not a bad kid. My favorite and you guys. Parties agreed that you have your favorite line. I mean every line of the story is an attempt to make you feel sorry for him but my favorite line comes from and the key is Chechnya threatened. Talked about the side of kids. Quote they were very soft like cuddly kittens. Always hugging and kissing each. She's talking about mass murders some of the worst. June the first successful terrorist attack on this country since 9/11. Two guys. Who murdered four and wounded 280. And into shook the city images monsters who killed the child culinary world child. Who who bootlegs off of thirty people. They were. Cuddly kittens she -- that. She says that an editor -- that they were like cuddly kittens always hugging and kissing. About murderous network and stuff were honest I didn't elect cuddly kittens -- could you imagine.

Or describe as complicated and analyze how this whole thing just nothing complicated to vote no they are evil people evil. Monster end of story evil Muslim people from each pitch Nestle had this twisted ideology. Who carry it out and who by the way still to. Still I mean obviously -- doesn't anymore policies that they would divergence.

That same people on talking about alike and it -- sixty right now early -- -- sixty and I point it cause is that stupid and will grow a lot of it apparently can let it -- to -- yet. They've just been you know here a little period in college everything out what the professor -- what every in the papers not Internet.
