They made a mistake the CME association of of putting in their press junket that. Anybody that asks. Stars about route 91 with other press credentials and poll while Bradley is he wanted to none of that. I tweeted right away I'm sure to see and isn't a reason to stupid bubble lie in 321 and see Mays did in fact do that and they're asked. Have some kind of tribute to some kind of mention is gonna have to be brought up this is still so fresh. In everybody's mind especially everyone went down in Texas on Sunday from absolutely. If you remember we had many many many listeners who were at road 91 in Vegas who are still dealing with the after effects that PT SD. One of them is Laura Laura and her boyfriend. Were running through the holes of a hotel trying to find shelter. Anywhere with a locked door. No won't let the men until a wonderful charitable couples and here come in. It's safe. Now know whose people work it could assure for all they need but they still did what they thought they had to do and Laura the day after harvest fest called us because she didn't know who these people.
