Now this is fall letter -- love feels like Thanksgiving what do we on the North Shore. A -- a minority Slidell US ambassador 38 up from what's had some 38 similar authorities in the city here -- -- this is caught yup. Look at that sunshine two week ahead on Thanksgiving a week from tomorrow. I was reading the Rouse is commercial and get hungry yeah I know talking about her darkened in spiral sliced town.

And don't forget -- -- it's -- -- sandwich in saints football on Thanksgiving we're gonna play what the Dallas Cowboys yeah. The new head coach of the Dallas. -- city beat the daylights out yeah I'd sure like to you can eat a horse who wore a visit this we say this independent -- panel of engineering. Who are -- come down very hard. Are -- are what took so long to figure Carlisle welcome about a seven month slow -- you know they need to come around with these reports. And the -- 28 major. And it says warnings were ignored. Everywhere tried did it one page with a my a if your editorial on inmate -- a lot -- -- yeah. What I said they -- 134 weeks after blue that they were negligent they were greedy. It was all about money they were behind schedule and yet they did avoid it and in the now what and his reports that they failed to learn what premier mrs. Have they had a failure learn from. Previous mistakes. And that sort of thing so it's it's interesting this is all coming out when mrs. big. Now to do. You know month after we have for now head of the ban lifted that we really haven't. Because there's nothing going I don't know I believe DeVon drilled a thing they can get a permit. Why are -- who's gonna get a permanent -- an operator when you gotta -- MBE you gotta agree to to a plan for four times the worst case scenario. Right now the turmoil over -- it's so expensive -- huge expense. The physical challenges going out there and in drilling and now all these new rules and regulations want to just come out and say look. You know our administration doesn't want offshore drilling we don't care if people. Tens of thousands are out of work in Louisiana all remember everybody was celebrating when the ban was lifted and it was early. And you know they thought at all member really gonna get going now. Business is going to be good yet deuce then permits are not happening so anyway that's that's our question this morning million dollars the moratorium still alive. Was this release. As Steve Scully -- thing is going have to permit Torre oversight right now. So anyway I the operators are are required to respond quickly and adequately was -- event that that makes sense it's a good argument. How ever. You know despite the margin of error four times the worst case scenario. What was the other former CEO sedate him -- from one day the -- -- make stories up within the Hayward Tony Tony borrow money Tony. I'll take your comments on that 260187. You have -- -- commend our president of Louisiana oil and gas association I can't get off this. This Bristol Palin last night making it to -- the finals and Dancing With The Stars really gotten under your this idea burn your saddle is a conspiracy here. I don't know. I I think it's great I think it's all about I think they're using her for ratings because Sarah Palin's there every night. Beginning Wallace exposure she can't dance or -- Can't I mean put it it's just goes to show your power of -- national television exposure and the writings. Really it's all about links I -- -- any on this girl I I don't know much about Randy missing they sent her home and then I'd be furious.

Has the that the moratorium ban really then lifted its spend know over months I was October 12. On the government announced that yeah. On the band not is are lifted the shallow water and deep water operators. Can now apply for -- permits and so on and so forth but then long night. Since then has there are only band I think soon new permits. For deep water wells are issued by AM by the government -- tell you as an answer -- that is the president of the Louisiana oil.

They're -- to be a -- Serbs don't really have an idea what they're doing a lot of people in -- -- don't wanna make decisions -- They're good people day but no more than two and and give the go ahead and and so permanent get tossed back and forth over. Although Romo did this past week on this issue yeah it was several building contractors. And as well as our congress vertically and and you know the reality is okay they all are struggling to to make it happen. There's just they lived -- that -- -- just -- -- complex. Web of spokesman knowing what to do. Them and this whole idea the government demanding that operators be ready to respond to four times the worst case spilled. A scenario from the oil -- first of -- field first of all on the cost of all let's I mean forcing operators to quadruple. On the estimate that it is that little overkill -- It's competitive bidding for a loyal Brcko residents almost -- killer deal toward because -- No idea of the requirements as we have to be able sponsors. Eight -- -- -- are 200%. These are removed. Possibility of -- well. Deployment in the Gulf of Mexico until we're increasing it to 400%. And wouldn't it when they came out whether affordable of them when I was on the phone -- the VOA and guys who may actually. So the question was where did you come up with a how to -- not happen. How do we know how to work cut the 400%. Tell us how you calculated that didn't and the guy below him did that lurking there we had to come up with -- -- is and that's what we came up. But it is an answer for you now while -- regular order director Roberto Rivera an undercurrent. I I was reading an editorial on vigorously in a newspaper editorial. -- saying at a pace field that the Interior Department rushed. So quickly -- -- last may. Are you know the moratorium and so on. They realize that was a bad decision they rushed through not to lift the ban he got people not knowing what's a -- you know who's doing walked. And the -- basically tell me if this is correct created now a huge expense. And challenge. For operators Armenia -- -- possibly affording to adhere to all this. Oh -- some companies are -- be able to importantly. Him and some well but it is going to be the web is -- be very long it could take. When Linda Salazar. Who lifted the moratorium he says this does not mean. That they will go back to drilling immediately it'll be quarter according to them some time. Before that'll happen. And then -- absolutely correct I -- even as shallow or pivotal have been. Thirteen permits but. Al-Qaeda April. You know we should have. A thirteen month the Michelle wore. -- need to understand. The oil industry DC police permits. Are specially for deep deep water wells. Two lead to new discoveries into and end and that means jobs I -- that's a whole bottom line here I mean that people are that tens of thousands of people. Are out of work a lot of them felt you know October 12. While Melissa band or feel quite feel about it when -- lose their job of those.

WWL FM and WWL dot com. So far this morning up pretty jaguar opinion poll question do you think the moratorium on offshore drilling. Is really still alive and 84% of our audience saying yes. On 16%. Are seeing a no. And would that Don Briggs the president of the Louisiana oil and gas association. I'd done -- what's this these these technical experts the national academy of engineering nation. This 28 report page report yesterday saying. And obviously BP ignored -- under the warning signs. Well we know how many do there have been so many reports were -- -- critical of the government agency here what is alma as one and BR well -- I don't know there are angry they're there they're -- to supported people wanted to present -- Oh yeah I have an army tickled to concern amongst the figure out what was going on out there the they were behind schedule. -- BP had neglected the warning signs -- we're greedy. And and will end an eleven people lost their life's current week are -- talking about a for seven months. I know it's gonna remain open do well unfortunately amendment that you know -- that. That's a bad situation -- they have them that strips like automobile driver getting -- regarding shouldn't be driving. You know any any of that it would happen but we still have killed 2500 -- -- there we have the technology we need to be. Earlier well well well exactly and it's to me it's not a coincidence that this report comes out. One all of a sudden we're saying -- we got four months we better start you know doing something about the fact that hey we can't. Responds. Four times the worst case scenario but my question to you when you should know can these operators safely. Return to offshore drilling in the Gulf of Mexico went up people fearing another disaster I mean that's the issue right now and how we do it. Absolutely we can do that we've been doing it for decades. And we can do it now. I mean it's just. -- nearly that we -- you never can say they'll never be another -- you can never mind that. I mean but the reality of it is pretend to have it happen. Turning to give him very very important element that could have happened there can be some safeguards put in I don't disagree with the what are some of the things that they're talking about doing. Tightening up some of the -- to rate -- companies don't make no mistake about it mistakenly big decision. That can beat teammate.

Heard my conversation Don Briggs the president of Louisiana oil and gas now. -- first ball our poll question are you responsive 260187. Beat you really feel the moratorium is still alive. On the government to -- October 12 that today the band has been lifted. While you god -- we -- jobs are gonna come back things are gonna be great here. But however. The government didn't say at that time that there -- new rules and regulations number one demanding. That these operators be ready to respond to four times the worst case -- scenario from oilfield. Now certainly operator is going to be required to respond quickly and adequately. I mean that that that's what it's all bottled. And we also know. That sure we gonna have to wait seven months since the you know lead to disaster out there. Offer these a group of technical engineers are to come out when they're 28 report on page report. Funded by the the administration in the government. To tell us that BP missed and ignored the warning signs we've been telling you bet on radio for seven months I tell you that for weeks. After the blow that BP was negligent they were greedy they were behind schedule. And it took the lives of eleven. Of our people out there -- meant to oil rig and of course we know the disaster the Doug. -- of the billions of gallons of of crude oil spilled. Into the Gulf of Mexico so you call me to -- 01870. You really think this is a perm Pretoria. That all the government tell -- they they they they lifted the ban may have -- anything but only had two applications applied for -- the -- moratorium was -- was lifted. By the way I'm not take credit are for the term crematorium and believe. Are represented the -- police. I'm Jefferson. Labeled the situation. That's. So take your callers and I want to ask you the question I I just asked -- Don -- do you think these operators can safely. Returning. To drilling offshore in the Gulf of Mexico went up all of us having to fear another disaster. And in a way out there reporting the moratorium. 26018 simply outside of our area -- Final Four. 180866889087. Welcome your response to talk will be out there. Weather's great Thanksgiving is a week away week from tomorrow. Aside planning you know the big get the big holiday just a week why can't believe. Last night I'm watching a Christmas shows are ready on telemundo the good when I'm Hallmark Channel -- like to see the Christmas card thing.

Junior wins. Your information tricks to get you through the day breaking news talk and sports leader though big 871053. WWL -- -- and WWL dot com. And so we're talking about the moratorium is it still alive taking your calls -- I don't wanna mention yesterday that ethics panel you know -- veteran congressman. Forty years this guy is as -- congress. Charles Rangel a -- Wrangler Charles Rangel. Well IUI yesterday was declared guilty of eleven counts of breaking ethical rules. And this guy is so defiant that he actually walk out of the trial. After began on Monday he wasn't even there yesterday when the subcommittee delivered the verdict. Did take him long to make a statement after that the news that the decision though. He's saying now how can anyone have confidence. In the decision of out of an ethics subcommittee. When I was surprise -- of the due process rights -- he'll get he'll get that. Because not a with a witnessing all works the case shifts to the full ethics committee which will meet I believe tomorrow. The start talking about the punishment for the congressmen. They don't have by the power by the all the way to kick them off. By the way the ethics. The ethics committee these John. Besides and an eight basically. They could they can take this thing to a full trial. The eight member ethics subcommittee concluded that Rangel broke house rules by using his office. To solicit millions of dollars in donations. For nonprofit center being. Erected in his honor. And housing a campaign office. For him. They also found that he failed to disclose. About 600000 dollars in assets -- did finally income tax report. Okay they failed to pay the taxes to the IRS on our rental income. Video own -- somewhere out there on on the country the ethics trials. -- very embarrassing episode for Charlie the Wrangler. Very powerful figure in congress known. For reserve isn't as hairdos as elegant clothes. His -- beautiful employees. But hey you can put down on a person but that still doesn't make -- not a crook. So will follow that one for you here at 747. Here on WW worst pollen WW -- while Zomorodi got a question problem warrant. -- don't -- you know. Get it done but retro eighties he is a good governor but -- -- -- the gauntlet thank you opinion about that but -- people but he. While Taiwan's first of volume was a minute ago listening earlier we kind of got into this thing I I think. I cannot believe the Bristol Palin made it to the dancing finals last but he can't -- the two got two left feet. And she's she's also and they had to dismiss this one girl -- team. -- -- -- head and shoulders above her but the main thing is that the Bristol Palin is the daughter. I'm Sarah Palin she's in the in the audience every night there want you know. On the show. I'm watching her daughter and it's all about ratings and -- I I think anything's rigged I really do. She doesn't -- any business being in the finals he can't dance -- So -- I don't know what's going on as an -- ratings isn't all about. You know the -- party people won't vote for almost an hour what do you think. Well a couple in the boat and boat because. Took me you know. She -- secret she can't dance he's awful. You know. I don't know how much -- drew Rudnick. I think it is a lot of when -- gone -- and the ability trickle. While it was in but I think she is survived I think out of five or six maybe even more than that. On being on the bottom of the list but cute when the voting comes he's she always makes -- show when she she made last night she survived the elimination. The singer brandy was sent home so now she's left when Jennifer -- Was a star in a movie a dirty dancing and the young kid he's ninety years old from the Disney. On channel who looks nothing like a -- but he's -- good he's got a light on his -- -- we're talking about literally I wanna do more -- don't wanna get awfully the topic. Of the moratorium because I'm gonna -- next hour. I'm an -- hunt joined president. On the international association of drilling contractors. We're gonna ask him about the crematorium if you will but I'm always interested in your comments. You know certainly. We all. Agree to the fact that operators -- should be required to respond quickly. If we have an accident not their offshore on the other hand the force these operators -- quadruple. The estimate certainly sounds like overkill so I'm asking you are pretty jaguar opinion poll question. Has that they -- moratorium ban been lifted or not doesn't seem like -- the government says it is but we've only had two permits. Actually applied for and you heard -- earlier guest saying hey look. It's pretty obvious that the government does not want offshore drilling. So while what they're doing is they're doing everything possible to prevent it even -- are telling us that the band has been lifted -- -- -- 60187. Of. And Wanamaker got a comment on Dancing With The Stars maybe you know more than I do. I just wanted for the first time on Monday night so I -- dance he -- -- -- do -- not. Bush and Britney Spears gimme more song as you know where he's a high black boots of around. Looked awkward attack. -- can't dance and and and basically. -- -- cascading you know they sexy outfit and so on but. People back in Alaska say hey look. She's just a single mom. Who's been a wallflower all her life through high school friends say that we're so used to go to the city high school dances and and she used to -- against the walls. To get out dancing Nazis but hey it's the power of national television now she's a diva. Well overnight 751 Bob Dole's all right back. The only radio station that listens to you.

Dancing With The Stars we got the answers in the announcement let's -- it -- unless I saw that. -- with the lowest combined total of judges. -- Brandy and Mac. There are -- I don't really about brandy who what I saw on Monday she says look pretty good to me -- was head shoulders. Above this Bristol lump payment where's Caroline Guantanamo Dancing With The Stars I'm for a Caroline I. I you've been watching that show. If I had and I'll tell you one further at this thing we Eric I'm usually not one of these people that this vicious like that but I tried the broad. Which I don't wrote that Larry and I decided that I -- dirty -- times and got busy signal and then when I got through. It's that I had reached my allotted amount voting turnout numbers I never a developer Brady act texting it's. Well now Kapono had eighteen PFI don't have Internet it only on ABC. -- was sold -- by trying to dialect. He couldn't get any of them at a busy signal. I -- 32 part -- -- former -- Believe it was totally right now he just wants to launch an American Idol anymore since then Adam Lambert yeah.

So I put that I you know charter boats aren't really naive and very much I -- -- Don't you love only had a problem voting and Olympia amber about can I do now is not the only one I have all. Got to realize they got Sarah Palin in the audience ever needed every night. And they got you know men and but what what. -- celebrity c.'s next governor's daughter she's a mom what biology thank you yeah believe there's no one thing not Deb the move but brief. During a time of Watson I think the dirty dancing girl what it wants an -- Jennifer -- I think she's impressed.
