Oh. A jazz museum. That's plagued by operating losses and bounced checks to musicians. Could be headed for a takeover by the city of Kansas City, Missouri. Kansas City Star reported that two City Council members introduce Norman's yesterday that is asking officials. To study the transfer of the American jazz museum to the parks and rec department by next spring. The measure includes 225000. Dollars. To help the museum meet its payroll. The twenty year old museum currently operates in a city on building but under an independent board. The institutions financial difficulties became apparent earlier this year. When performers from him made jazz festival realized their checks from the museum had balanced. Performers were rode a 150000. Dollars at one point. Kansas City manager Troy Schulte says there are no legal obstacles to a city takeover. Years ago Dana and I questioned the viability. Of the eighteenth and by industry. We were invited to dinner by one congressman Emanuel Cleaver and his wife Diane. We attempt. The mayor and his checked that the congressman and his wife could not have been more gracious hosts. We had a lovely dinner. Then the congressman former mayor of gave us a tour of the negro leagues baseball museum which was lights out. Then we went over to the jazz museum. Which is actually within the same had a blast. And he also was very interesting. But quite frankly I didn't get the lights out kind of feeling I got when I was in the negro leagues baseball is. It's okay sometimes I think for the city to admit a mistake. And just say you know what we tried it may have worked for a little while but it's just not work out you could argue hey Scott you dumb dumb. You said that twenty years ago about science city. And Union Station and look at its gangbusters and well Union Station is gangbusters I don't know if I'll ever believes science it is gangbusters I have always argued when it comes to the jazz museum they need to shut it down move over to Union Station reported and a small little room over there. Because let's be honest I agree however you not remember meeting the son of satchel page. Met him alive remote satchel and hey it was a baseball player not a jazz music and he said as I said of the whole thing. And he said my father. Would be so against that and and he said let me tell you why. I think you move the whole thing if you're gonna move it ice here's ice you you'd kill the jazz museum move over in two. Union Station in one of those small rooms off to decide to go and look at Charlie Parker stone for him minerals. Counties seal its. And you expand the negro leagues baseball museum a make it bigger and better than Adori. Because let's be honest. Jazz is cutting it anymore. What it rot rot what do you what do you so emphatic about it mattered and I just. What is he rot devices of the agree with. With what he's singular. Nothing to you okay. I thought you like yellow light on target Travis okay postcards to troops. We're talking about you know to you her gone. 5767798. Apparently the jazz museum is struggling. Like Joan neighmond strolling. To the tune of over half a million dollars recorded in part. Is this an idea that we need to prop up that this is part of Kansas city's sister we need to prop up that jazz museum Scott come on man. Resist some we just say you know what we tried it when it didn't work. It would also in a plane kids jazz festival went away what 910 years and then they tried to bring that back. I don't think we shut the door on the history of this town. And if there's a better way to keep these treasures of Phillips. I think we should discuss it I'm open to ideas that you pay for me 576779.

Our vets call editors. The break down. Yeah happens. Dig into the through the two. And our wedding day it's. Of angers the Swedish. She idealism and. Want to cross is it that far west you taught them. Me and tell our FAR arm. Far west huge it's accurate to say that it was like an essay are being specific request you to. I a 74 year old men is walking for miles a day on a mission to add time to his wife's life. Was. He this is a sweet story Dana I thought you recognize. He is spreading his message by wearing a sandwich board and is gaining the attention of drivers and thousands of others on line. Wayne winters started this journey just three days ago walking busy streets near his home in far west to help his wife find cute. He said he is already overwhelmed by those who want to help. Says winters I don't walk relief fast. With every step he takes every car that passes he gets closer to his goal I'm going to get kidney from my wife. My wife has stage five kidney failure she's on dialysis and she doesn't like it it's. All Wayne found the love of his life 26 years ago. Now he's on the search to find her kidney. While dot DN undergoes dialysis. And honestly Scott she's probably not in great candidate for a transplant. Because of her age. Red letters spell out the plea for his wife in the hundreds of people and you tall also in need a kidney. Where is Sam the board turns where does that there was a picture somewhere. I mean it's it's basically a stranger donation they're asking because of someone dies in a car wrecks got he doesn't get to say hands like that kidney. He's asking for a living. Donor that's the only way this process works and you can't jump the line when there 6000 people ahead of you and Scott I've always been. It's an uncomfortable conversation to have. About those decisions. But someone has to make and rank. The order in which you received. That gift somebody somewhere has to say. She goes toward the bottom of the list and a four year old in full kidney failure goes to the top. And it's unpleasant. And it's awful and if your loved one is on the list and you know. Drank for a 45 years. And is in complete liver failure someone has to decide that that person goes below. A 22 year old with poly cystic kidney disease. You know in sand and and it's awful. We have limited resources because not enough people donate so those awful decisions have to be met to whom would you donate one of your kidneys. Come. I am signed up. To be not asking when you die aid and an L eight living marrow donor I did that be the match speed to match. And a buddy of mine what is the match and flew to Colorado. To give a stranger donation he he was matched so if someone called me tomorrow from the match and said you're generally do it again. That was very good at dodging the question mr. trump. To whom would you give a kid. I'm imagining that none of them are in this room with. How can you not you can't like OK I've looked for three years analysts dead we cannot find a suitable donor. And then you know rotten nine carat down and do the swap and I met her hands to slow from our. Better safe than sorry dad is I don't I don't play Obama Matalin and Obama match. That I have to go and given him. I don't know is it a lot. Yeah I yeah. It is is I've your one and four point five. Here's the best it's. Not. I I have a good friend who donated a kidney to his father and this was in late ninety's. He's got a scar basically from belly button to backbone. It's big I mean today they had to. Almost cut him and have to get that. It would Alter. Your relationship. I think it would be easier to give a stranger to Eleanor and here's why. If it's a stranger. You say yes I'll do it I'll save their life she's twenty years old she is to start now. Opened me up take a kidney if it's someone you know. I think it gets worse the closer that relationship is because like it or not it is ships yes if you stop the big groups. Ticket now I mean I have been telling them the one kidney. It didn't think it. I think it's worse when someone like your dad your mom because. You've he would feel like okay now you can't fight I can't ask them for money because that it's gonna look like. I need to borrow a couple thousand dollars because I feel like you have to give it to me and that they feel like they have to give it to you. It screws the relationship up. For those closest. Borrowers. Is that I am and I I'd walk when was the one kidney and tough to walk out when cute and I are here as I gave you want here at eastern fit their. Only this what you permanent thing you give one to your kids. Tonight your parents. Of us which parent would you if both your parents were in kidney failure. To an atom line wanted to put the picture view cross idle over the Internet can't cut it half and give them each apiece and can't let it happen given me to be easy to do that without liver not a yeah they were okay. And if you cut your liver and half I think you'd and then you flip for. Ol Scott that's hard. I'm a bigger gonna give to know what I would have to tell them you work it out amongst yourselves. I'm not make that call are his idea and throw the key idea. Whoever her view is it's like. The bride's group acknowledges Ogden I'll turn the other way and I'm Laura and look I feel I'm proud of myself to be over right shoulder isn't letting her right hand I don't. He is prominent tosses kidney over my right shoulder that kept it delicate ground that popped in now Linda. I know you're not walking the way I used so you're gonna have to figure some out here because Craig's it would more edge. Would you make your dad stand behind your mom and race for a I would wanna watch the use of each other out of the way. You would donate a kidney to someone needed it you know my mom's very got only has one. And. For the love of god you not focus on any part of the show. What happened in my my breast. Cancer survivor she's a kidney cancer survivor. Seek her sister's kidney issues. You're not very long ago I was very upset about it.

Our return power returns they can't hurt. Since he's aware that she's eight ninths governors and a lot of people were saying and I'm not comparing the two crimes and I'm about to them about share with another crime and another very. Fair. Old defendant. Listen to this. A former guard at the mod do nick death camp in Nazi occupied Poland has been charged in Germany. With being an accessory to murder. For allegedly serving their during a period when at least 171000 Jews were killed. The 96. Year old Frankfurt resident. 96 years old. Whose name is not released under Germans are Germany's privacy regulations. Is alleged to have served with the death camp near the polish city of Loveland executed. Between August 1943 in January of 1944. Prosecutors allege that as a 22 year old member. Of the SS death's head division and the man worked as a perimeter guard and in the camp's guard towers. According to towers by the way it would stay stood on with rifles and shot people who tried to escape let's beyond sort yes absorb. According to the known evidences from prosecutors in the statement according to the no evidence. The suspect as well as all other SS members of the camp knew of the rule. And organized mass murder not accusing him of actually taking part in net. They're accusing him. Of being a guard at the camp. And being aware of and I know the argument you know following orders is not an excuse them and your right. But he is 96 years old. And I'm I'm just I'm asking these Roman prison yes. I think they also the next unit well I mean they never from the sky and there were. Hundreds of thousands of bees just now find him well it's ninety sic there are still to this state Nazi hunters out there. And they goes scouring and I don't mean and a negative way they go scouring for these new. And when you're dealing with hundreds of thousands of people and you data for example you find one you know here's ons Friedman. And we start looking for Hans Friedman. And either the trail goes cold world we find out pounds for an indictment and it. Ahead let's move on an excellent. Men we find a guy who's 96 years old in Frankfurt who was 22 years old working at this camp. So he's basically skated for seven. I'm just saying at what point do you just say he's 96 years old. What's the point. Dual. CI IT which make this topic I think with that crime there is always a point. Cut. 5767798. Is due to the news Ramirez will stir happening now on KM BZ progress.
