>> other side of the plate one of those balls hit hard so i didn't have a lot of time to get back there and i didn't get back there right away came right to me. he stayed at home, he would have been different, but he saw me, went after the ball, and just didn't go my way to do sometimes it breaks don't go your way that's why i get another chance? five days >> let's hope it goes john's way tomorrow talk about a guy that's overdue he's pitching well though, keeping the ball down which he has to do found his changeup and touch on his fast ball swinging more breaking balls and back to the john that last year had 60% quality start tied with josh and best of all of baseball >> his opponent tomorrow, josh

on the morning of november 7, 2003, we were traveling to an observation post. they fired a rocket into the rear. i can remember looking down to see the pants of my uniform being torn. i didn't see my leg. i didn't know much about amputations, prosthetics or what life was going to be like. learning to use the prosthetics was a huge boost in my life. it gave me back what i had lost. >> to those responsible for the crown royal your name here program, i would like to tell you about heath calhoun. when i first saw the contest, i thought of heath. how fitting this would be. everyday i'm taken aback by his
accomplishments and each day am amazed by the role model he has become. >> i started skiing after i lost my legs. i fell in love with how free it made me feel. after being in a wheelchair for several months, it gave me my legs back. i won the title last year and got second in the fall. i was able to earn a spot on to team usa for the 2010 olympics in vancouver, british columbia. my team elected me as the flag betterrer where i was honored to bring the flag in representing our country. >> the winner is -- heath calhoun. >> thinking about the way i grew up with nascar and that being part of my grandfather's life and him bringing it into my life, until now, these are
definitely things i would never have thought possible in my life any way, shape or form. >> gordon has 14 career short track wins. that's the most among active drivers. highlights when it goes final. phil mickelson treated his kids to krispy kreme donuts. johnny damon's first home run with the tigers is one he'll never forget. he makes history and gets his just desserts in the process. hut!

movement was incredibly important and like any think it's important it opens up accountability to big businesses and corporations. it is a good thing. and, you know, there's always point be some trivial lawsuits. >> host: these are trivial these are lawsuits that can destroy the company. and some deserve to be called irresponsible behavior and, you know, i would really hate to see anything that would inhibit the possibility of consumers to hold corporations accountable because corporations have too much power as it is. the pharmaceuticals have made the zillions on contraceptive products particularly the pill
and the need to be held accountable to make sure they are safe and the low and access a well and affordable. and, you know, i don't see that as a particularly critical demand. that's just -- the we cannot turn around. they haven't made more progress and we can't because they are just paralyzed right now with the fear they will be these crippling lawsuits and seems to me this would be a time we could make a temporary investment and do for a few years with child vaccines. >> guest: i think they don't shy away from anything that is profitable a vacancy cost-benefit analysis. or the european companies have continued to research in the bill and the found it profitable to do so. americans have access. >> host: they don't have the same trial lawyers we have. >> guest: i will have to disagree because of the trial lawyers are some of the most
democratic practitioners today. but i don't think that we are quite see eye to eye on this. >> host: it's going to help women at least in this area. let's move on to vaccine detection of the male pill. do you think that there will be assuming people are brave enough to go forward and pharmaceutical companies think there could be a profit do you think there would be a good thing? >> guest: sure. the more the merrier. the more options the better. there are men who say loci and ready to take part in this to do my share. i want to participate in the contraceptive responsibility. it is just quite interesting that half a century ago there were announcements of a couple of months in the press saying there is all this work being done on a male contraceptive pill. next year we are going to see on the market and then that didn't happen and two years from now
we'll will see it on the market at just about a month before the book went to press i found another article in the news saying the male pill is just round the corner and i don't know i think the issue is whether one of the pharmaceutical companies believe there is quite be in markets and the same products that have been available for contraception mainly the condom. >> host: in "the new york times" pointed out that complexities that rise with women there are more into it plans and with the man it is confined to one area and it has some experiments which are just horrendous. >> guest: the main side effect for the men that seems to be extreme for women seems to be the experimental pills it causes increase in libido.
there is no man who is 28 hill that is when to have that impact. they've been able to develop some compound that does not actually affect libido but have other with pharmaceutical companies believe work unacceptable side effects that would prohibit them from taking it. a young man took it and it worked and they give it to young man out of prison and it seemed to work and they went and had some drinks and their eyes turned bright red and they were rushed to hospital. so again, are the men going to agree to take a pill and then -- >> guest: you may never have another drink while you are taking this bill be read is that practical? not practical. >> host: but you did say that they would come up with an injection that seems to work and not half bad side effects and you say they expect women to take the pill once a night, when not have meant a once a week for injections.
wouldn't you take a pill every day bamako for an injection? that seems to me not commensurate. >> guest: people with diabetes give themselves injections of the time if they have to but is a man going to want to do that once a week? >> host: in your book and andrea's book and others there are many men that just whatever is best for them and their wives and a sacrifice it just for a lot of men are frightened by the possible the of being fathers when they don't want to sue the of the lot to gain as well. >> guest: think men have been underestimated by the company with the assume men are willing or unwilling to do. you don't know because there has never been an opportunity.
>> host: they have side effects the sometimes unpleasant. >> guest: the benefit there for them and apparently is the men are the ones taking it so for them than if it is outweighed the risk in the case of viagra in terms of the contraceptive again we don't really know the pharmaceutical companies and many of the researchers are. >> host: they probably assume that the fear and anxiety of casual sex and amounted pregnancy for men might be an ability to perform. it seems there's a good side and bad side it's complicated. but on the other hand women have a reason to want men to share in the response of the and it's understandable and men want to
help out and protect themselves from unwanted -- negative there would be -- i think it could be hard to get a progress in the environment but we won't go back there. i have a question about a passage. of margaret sanger you call her in this passage is a different voice because we hear about her as the reformer but this is the romantic and she's all birth control as contributing to the greater exhibition of the female sexual the which she saw and idealized spiritual terms and her 19266 and will she articulate to believe in the uplifting power of intimacy and sexual companionship be considered she said a true union of seóul knott this early function or for a momentary release of sexual organs and
then she goes on about the joy of sexual embrace. and you say that these reflect the view that reformers of the 20s and 30's. does it reflect the views of people everywhere about sexual? not the people looking at and so forth. against what we have to remember in the early 19th and 20th centuries for the first time there was a widespread recognition that women have sexual desire. you know, we have to remember this is coming off of the victorian period women were expected to tolerate but it wasn't expected that they would find pleasurable or meaningful or any may joyous but it was just something they needed to succumb to in order to reproduce and have children and there were six rebels a nineteenth-century who were arguing that women did have sexual desire and experience sexual pleasure but
it was a very radical notion and the 19th century and in a 20th century early decades of the 20th century it becomes part of mainstream medical and also mainstream i guess you could say expert opinions that the women did have sexual desire and we needed to understand that and some of the women, like singer, to celebrate its. there was a romantic notion and the 19th century that was quite chased. and in the 20th century began to get romance and sex used in discussions of the spiritual union of a man and a woman, so sanger is incorporating sex into the romance which was the strong 90 the central idea. the idea for the mainstream
middle class observers and people who wrote about this and medical professionals that women and men have romantic inclinations and loved each other but sex was a drive that was mostly men and women put up with it because they had to have children and they wanted to have children and by the early 20th century medical opinions and scientific opinions had changed and so it would be the spokespeople like sanger would bring together the sexual and spiritual because of to that point you have to remember that women who were sexually desirous or aggressive even were considered nymphomaniacs. that word goes and comes back. >> host: but is she correcting that? >> guest: i think that she is speaking to everyone and i was amused but most men and women
would resonate to her words including iraq moved eckert fear of flying she seemed to be celebrating casual free love with consequences but recently she was asked about the hook up culture and all of the wild things going on with promiscuous -- she said being able to have an orgasm of a man you don't love isn't liberation. >> guest: you will get a lot of opinions about that kind of thing. the bill is basically a revolutionary for what it has done for allowing women to live the lives they wanted to live to have the sexual experiences, the family experiences and the career opportunities and public life opportunities that they want. we have no evidence at all that the pill had anything to do with the sexual revolution. what we know is that it was important especially for married
women in their early years to be able to control their fertility so they could determine what they wanted to do with their lives and fulfill their dream. that is what it was about. and those doctors who were involved in the early years who had these idealistic visions didn't come true but where they thought about the family as something that would benefit from the birth control pill they were right and the people who said the bill would destroy the family and create sexual chaos, they were wrong. the bill actually did improve family life to the point where men and women could predictably decide when and how they wanted to have children and make it happen that way. and that was unbelievable the revolutionary. much more revolutionary than the so-called sexual revolution. this had to do with people's lives, their opportunities, the ability to fulfill their dreams and their full life course and
that is the revolutionary potential of the pill. that is where it has an impact allowing of the women to be able to live their life they wanted to lift. now women have always made their own decisions about whether or not they wanted to have sex with whom and where and why. >> host: not always, not everywhere. >> guest: they may not have been able to live according to those decisions, but, you know, that is something that is on some levels distinct from something like what the bill offered. there are women who use the pill for whatever they want to use it for. as we think the whole question about sex and single men and women is a very complicated question and nothing that we can associate with any technology. >> host: i agree ivan basso ze the technology. i guess i am worried about the
all but in some women's studies the classes are it's not even women's studies its gender studies classes there is now they are promoting any kind of section of the as long as it destabilizes the normative ready to quote the jargon and there's a separation of sex and love which is fine. i am not a prude about it but i also wish that there was more of what margaret sanger said and that what dr. into the ratings one gets in the contemporary studies in classroom. they are not feminists writing? and real levy and others. >> guest: you are going to get a wide range of approaches from any university curriculum and in the women's studies per curriculum and viniculture. >> host: i think it is narrow.
>> guest: on some level frankly it is a little old fashioned to look at it that way. 20th century these days to think about it in that way. >> host: i've been on the campus -- >> guest: i think we can find our range and variety and wider discussion of all of these issues and sure you will get everything in the classroom and that is a really good thing because the universities are all about exploring new ideas what ever they are and just putting it out there and letting people discuss them and there is as much diversity of opinion on the campuses about these issues as he would find anywhere else. the difference as those discussions took place in the classroom and in various public places. that's what the universities are for and i celebrate that. host could you mengin any women's studies department has a conservative -- >> guest: that's really not my business to go through
[inaudible] i have been teaching at the university of minnesota for decades and i can tell you that there is just a wide array of opinion from eight to be. from a to z and beyond on every issue and i think again that this is a red herring. i think that the women's studies department have taken a beating that they shouldn't have taken. they are opening new concepts and opening new ideas and where those ideas are new and where they seem to be threatening to certain status quo ideas they get beaten up for that but they don't deserve to be and so, you know, i don't think again we are going to see eye to eye but again you have your opinion and i have mine and my experience being part of a women's studies and gender studies program in the history department and american studies department and history of medicine department on doug ret faculty of all of those departments in my university and i can tell you that the left range of opinions that are expressed in the
classroom and the range of teaching is very wide there will always be an attack on the most extreme or what seems to be the most challenging and the most inappropriate perspective in the mainstream. i've been feministing because -- you know, the thing about this website including many others, but, you know, the feministing group, those are young people who are trying to keep the conversation alive and whoever writes on it and comes on it -- there is a love of the races out there on the internet. i got a lot of voices from a lot of places and i took the voices that were out there and there is as much diversity of opinion on these issues as there always
have been but it's always the most extreme on both sides the right and the left that are going to get the most attention. and there's everything in between. so, you know, i just feel the in universities and web sites are the places these ideas can be generated. i got every possible opinion about the pill from people who wrote to be not all of them not to menacing but a number of them including the young women who conservatively evangelical who wrote a long wonderful deeply thoughtful letter to me and she found my query on fannin -- feministing. savitt is not excluding the voices of the women like that. i got every opinion out there and i got none as well and i include them in the story because i wanted the full range and they can out of feministing as well so i really applaud the young women who've taken on five feministing 3i want to give them
a plug on the national television did feministing is a great thing and i am glad they are out there and they deserve the credit for the hard work they've done because the have conversations to a new generation. >> host: i suggest they go to the clare boothe luce foundation or the network of enlightened women and the new america -- i ron saidy clare boothe luce feminist and the new and then we are not represented -- tester you have your position and where you are coming from, you have your political views and institutional home and i applaud you kind of increase in vat and speaking -- >> host: here's what i think. i enjoyed the book and was a great summary but every once in awhile it would seem to have
feminist slogans and i thought that maybe it's important to you that this is a woman's achievement of the pill. it wasn't just went and played a part of the men invented it and have to count for something. they were -- was a woman's achievement. it was the women that first made it happen because of katharine mccormick's money and the women put their body on the line to participate and the clinical trials. of course there were wonderful men involved. you're father involved. >> guest: my own father who i've spent my life being proud and grateful to along with john and gregory pincus. they overshot the conversation the women behind the scenes now, margaret sanger and mccormick were not behind the scenes that they were not always in the forefront of the discussion of who really need the bill had been. neither are the hundreds of thousands of women including
myself frankly who became guinea pigs for the pill to the experimental dose is who went through all of the clinical trials and experimentations and who literally put their bodies on the line to bring this compound to the market. they couldn't test the pill if it weren't for the women who volunteered to take an experimental drug and then you get to the women's health movement and the women who insisted on a safe till and on the packaging and informed consent and all of that and it was the women who can that shaped the way that the bill was going to be developed and marketed and taken and of course at the time most of the scientists were then. it is not true today. let me just put it this way, suppose let's take the analogy. jovana published a vaccine and
attracted the attention of the infantile paralysis and officials in the eckert came and encouraged him to take the research he was doing and focusing on polio and they found it and the rest is history. we don't remember the activists. we remember john and it seems to me gregory pincus is the jonas and the women at the -- [inaudible] he would argue because he named himself the father of the hill and there has been a lot of competition among those guys. but the women in planned parenthood is a store that is told and they used to worship gregory pincus for saving them. there is no question, there is no question that the scientists
and doctors -- this is a time that very few women have access to the science and medical training. katharine mccormick was the second woman to ever graduate from mit in 1902 with a biology degree and was a scientist and was involved in selecting pincus and observing moderate and keeping track of the research and making sure that the facilities were what she thought they ought to be in terms of their scientific value and so she was a scientist but there were decades when women didn't have access to this kind of training. so, you know, the man deserves credit and get credit. my book gives them credit. for goodness sakes -- men have never even really been in the story but the point is the pill wouldn't have been but it is and here is the reason. the reason is that if there were no opportunities for women outside the home, then the pool
would have been more convenient, more effective, definitely important for married women, but it couldn't have changed their lives because there was no place to go. so, what you need of course for the pill to make a difference in people's lives is if what the women what to do is take the pills so that they can get an education, get a job, pursue a career those opportunities have to get out there. if you take the pill and there's no where to go with it and you're still able to get access to higher education and unable to get access to the careers in the medicine, law or anywhere else to can't get involved in public life because women are not welcome there that will get the pill was a good contraceptive but it's just one more contraceptive. it's not revolutionary. it's effective that would have pushed open the door. so the women took the pill they had somewhere to go otherwise the bill wouldn't have done them much good in terms of their whole life opportunity.
the opportunity happens to be there. the bill didn't create those opportunities. the pill didn't open doors to universities and higher education and science is the and all fees occupational opportunities. the pill didn't open the door to women being elected to public office. the bill didn't open those doors. women opened the stores. >> host: and minn helped. [inaudible] feminist movement made that happen. the feminist movement pushed the doors open. >> guest: it couldn't happen unless you had the men that were there that were supportive. we had -- >> guest: the feminist movement is the feminist movement because women did it. it's like when in liberated. like nice people made the civil rights movement had. black people need the civil rights movement had been. in the case of the bill is a
classic example it was a corporation and all along -- it was women's rights to open the doors and make it possible for the bill to change -- >> host: i don't disagree with most of your story except for the slogans and then that you chose probably the most underrepresented example of the women that one could imagine. if you look at the book which you have you see the range of the voice is that i drew to tell the story of the bill today was across the political religious age, class, everything spectrum -- i just don't know what status that has in the social science that you go to a website and get letters. >> guest: in my early works when i used cases and newspapers, you get people's stories, you hear back from the people who feel the strongest on
all sides and it is always been my business to take the strongest positions on all sides so that the leaders can see what's behind these positions. they are not as easily represented the our heartfelt and that is what really makes the difference here. >> host: they are telling us time is up. we could go on and on. "america and the bill." elaine tyler may, thank you. >> guest: thank you. it's been a pleasure. the executive editor of ingrams
magazine talks with allied on the western world. lakewood oaks golf and country club in missouri hosts this hour-long event. >> my mother was 15 when she got married and she never went to high school and she would look at me years later and say after i got my ph.d., jack come if you are so smart how come you're not rich blacks and i still working on that one. i haven't figured it out. i had a pretty good day today i have to tell you about this. i am driving account and a stop at mcdonald's for lunch. i buy a happy meal as i usually do, open my happy meal and what do i find it my happy meal? a nobel peace prize.
