Yeah is are people your views on the Charlie Baker. -- that Charlie Baker is here and how he was once called the heart and soul the well administration which is like being called the smartest -- Dan Sheehan. Admire -- really really he's -- -- with real tenacity. A guy who really sticks in here he says he's going to lose the governor's race twice before he moves to New Hampshire to run again. I acted as a Democrat who says. Oklahoma's own lose warrant accusing scrubbed from them and copper Becker. She's been around forever she yes yes of course she -- -- -- we want that -- the ethicists that you left out of not completely closed at the best one can always do to. I don't working on another book and I have to face the fact when you write about you don't always end up with a title you want. The publisher kept rejecting everything I have come up -- like this what a title. What to expect. When -- expecting. To get screwed by Wall Street. Or might consumer's guide to the middle class getting hammered. It's cold. Eat Pray Love to regulate. Or even worse they're completely rejected my favorite idol. Elizabeth Warren's story. Fifty shades of gray here. And they. Did you waste on that was so bad no one laughed but it didn't even know what -- -- -- -- sought to voters I just put it on. -- us on Twitter nicest people write about how bad it was sort of put it on it's beyond that it's so incredibly bad that I couldn't turn and I don't know what I believe that she think -- a good job because people told issues good job with him live life like that should excite -- But you know -- she could say -- do and reading in the -- over the whole you know the whole crowd the BC -- the globe -- -- but it's uncomfortable the F. In the parades anti gay hugely bigoted homophobic pre went off about it to graduation to Eagles you can -- any anti gay guys and got people who -- yet twelve day people were stopped at -- -- -- -- -- go what's his name early -- early at a club until three great guys Johnny -- is dead break up a break on all went up to the Olympic color I was going. To give Stephen Lynch credit because he marched -- you know that's amazing that he dared march I said that takes guts. But he must with a gay guy like as a human shield -- -- well so he he deflected criticism -- was marching with a gay guys. Well 45 different companies pulled out this parade including this. Sam Adams our own company Entercom we're not doing its 45 companies want to use our in mobile. Colorectal and now they have had a -- used it -- -- really yet. In this -- ever money. And now. And and we think you she said Margery Eagan said Beckett should not televised. A talent which is very straight and do this company should report on. And events because it's amazing that we're gonna look I'm -- we disagree on some aspect of this but this is getting a lot of differences I understand story you don't destroy our allies directly got -- -- -- around -- -- head around I don't know why you're not I think I get it okay -- -- -- -- the new guy and -- guy that you I am not clarify I'm not going to tell somebody that they can't. Or cannot hold a parade because they believe or don't -- -- I'm OK with. Our belief our argument is -- at the preakness fine I think he people should be allowed to be met and married you don't that's that's that the discrete. What. Sort of but the parade out some like Columbia. Yeah. Not at that -- I heard this over the week and I -- a dozen times that the your biggest your behavior here they are your thoughts are not allowed to -- -- who's concerned is where they -- which he allowed to march ethics oh yeah people marched with -- equality allowed to march behind its banner. Yes yes it was. Why did I never hear that and they -- a sort of you know it wasn't -- thing is gonna turn out to be this crazy thing -- the guys were asked question obviously let's check out his hand guys can't. Good or bad president and I just yeah just isn't that exactly is that more clear jobs they thought they were all right but let's see they could march right big gains. Groups could mark should these extra marketing groups yes mass equality was allowed to march right. Then what I heard all we can probably not true when hurdle weakened on the local -- that the Massaquoi was not allowed to mark that's a lot. That's probably accurate that is connected very good -- progress. Now have you ever seen major greatness that west in the gay pride parade and you. Mean I know this this whole media is courtesy wonderful. But you see how. Margin level employee and -- a marvelous for your screen that -- -- -- wrote about that's accomplishing get the true a lot entertaining to watch -- -- I don't disagree okay that. So if you say let the much in full regalia -- -- for entertainment purposes that's like genitalia but the -- realize what they have roles as a matter. I think that's like upset right now I understand -- remember -- literally black or early and companies -- -- the group that. I have to gay bashing -- do you know what you think it's all the fault no I don't I don't. And Richard -- -- what's your definition of home awful if your son -- due to the gate he never talked him again your home I don't know I sent it sounds like a good family man these old. -- All fall back. You're sure it's I don't know where old. Page and all is okay whatever else I -- that spot on its. What did you know of what. Couldn't believe it and ride the metal movement I don't run I was right I didn't write it -- well -- -- that it's but what. Happen if they marched behind the mass equality sun L marched in the green on like -- and I do right and would they have. Got as much coverage would they have been able to hijack the store he noted that -- -- -- -- -- -- negotiated -- -- -- early -- -- -- -- And we -- announced that negotiate with them. They they they -- is the rule you you can have the mass according banner you can't go beyond the Colombian bull. Billion -- genitalia and they said no. We won't go along with that if they -- The kind of marched there would have been a story Margery -- would have been on the warpath right they wouldn't have advance. Hydrogen hybrid and like I did the security to Mexico that's not the I was of the argument I don't disagree. That you see in the game price range you -- see they -- -- stilts. They don't want the saint -- dot. That's Mike I don't get it right I mean that's that's finally don't I mean obviously you can't break the law you can't be -- you can't beat new -- to -- having sexual intercourse they don't rate -- -- it's incredibly credible on -- -- walk around it's confusing for the rules to watch that -- that's -- I think teaching moment and -- -- that's what I -- teach.
