west came that image being sworn in for fourth term as california's governor. the ceremony represented a personal milestone took place as his state is experiencing a remarkable come back. john blackstone will report our cover story. >> six years ago the sun appeared to be setting on the california dream. plummeting home prices and soaring debt were robbing the golden state of its luster. as we reported on "sunday morning" back then, plenty of californians were ready to give up hope. is the california dream kind of dying? >> it's not dying. it's dead. >> it was a crisis to be sure, but in politics, crisis is just another word for opportunity. >> the state was in massive debt, 27 billion. there was great untern tee. over a million people had lost their jobs. that was then. now california is coming back. >> is that your doing? >> it's in part my doing
6:10 am
certainly. >> it's hard to imagine who would have wanted to become governor of a state that was in such a sorry state. but in 2010 jerry brown certainly did. and last november voters rewarded him for leading california back from the brink. electing him to an unprecedented fourth term as governor. >> we'll sit over here. >> the state once again boasts the world's 8th largest economy, bigger than russia's. even a budget surplus last year. the governor regularly receives foreign dignitaries befitting california's status of hi-tech super power. >> climate change occurs and it is occurring and droughts, extreme weather that will accelerate immigration. >> the secret to jerry brown's

success? raising taxes while cutting spending. policies that have angered his fellow democrats nearly as much as republicans. you had to push democrats in california to accept a lot of the cuts that you proposed. >> i still have to push, democrats and republicans. there's endless desires. the way i say it is first you have a desire, then you make it a need then you make it a right, pretty soon you got a law. then you got a lawsuit. you got to be able to say no. because this government is not something you just milk forever. i don't like to spend money. that's not because i'm conservative it's because i'm cheap. >> for decades jerry brown has always chartered unique course in politics. his father, pat brown was elected governor of california in 1958. edmund brown junior, was hardly the heir apparent. at the time he was studying to become a jesuit priest.
6:12 am
but politics is his true calling. >> i know he has two votes. >> in 1974 jerry brown one his father's old job. >> it is a unique experience at the age of 36 to find myself elected of the largest state in the union. >> he encounter add political landscape that's all too familiar today. >> an election is not an end it's a beginning. fair to say that people want a new spirit but don't want to pay a lot of money for it. ♪ >> famously frugal brown dispensed with the limos and private planes of his predecessor, ronald reagan. he was a creature of the 190s and the bachelor governor made waves for dating singer linda ronstadt. in office, his track record was solid, but brown also pursued
6:13 am
ideas that were ahead of their time. an advocate for the environment and alternative energy, he even wanted the state to launch its own research satellite. brown's stellar ambitions earned him a long-lasting nickname. >> finally encouraged governor moonbeam. >> that was a little moniker i had to live with. it was a reflex of the fact that we were trying to do very innovative things that seemed a bit outlandish then. >> his presidential ambitions were no less outlandish. he ran three times and each time he found his campaigns at odds with the democratic establishment. >> it's a cause they can't buy. a force they can't stop. on tuesday don't vote for me, vote for yourself. >> today at age 76 jerry brown is the establishment. an exemplar of the adage what goes around comes around. the path back to sacramento
6:14 am
wasn't easy. he served as mayor of oakland then attorney general. before running a heated race to succeed arnold schwarzenegger. >> california is not perfect. we got our problems. >> his last re-election was easier he swept back in to office with 59% of the vote. >> at this stage everybody pitching in. >> he also convinced voters in drought-stricken state to approve a $7.5 billion plan that includes new reservoirs, dams and water tunnels. and brown remains committed to building a controversial high speed rail line from san francisco to los angeles. >> if i can use a biblical admonition, he who perseveres will be saved. andreas convenience is something i learned very early in life i wouldn't be here as governor these many decades later if i didn't have that habit of strucking to it. >> is it frustrating to be 40
6:15 am
years later fighting the same battles? >> think about the alternative. to be frustrated is a real pleasure. >> if brown has mellowed in recent years many attribute to his 2005 marriage to anne gust a former executive with the gap. both was their first marriage. you got married after 15 years of dating, you were pushed, do i understand correctly? >> due diligence. >> just decided it was time. >> they have evolved in to a working partnership as well. with gust-brown serving without pay as special counsel to the governor. >> gave you the title counsel? >> yes. how do you give that counsel? >> in different ways at different times. >> not publicly. >> i try not to do it publicly. usually i start with edmund. when i'm giving him serious advice i'm calling him edmund. but jerry, i have to give him a lot of credit because he really
6:16 am
listens. >> you're always willing to change your mind? >> i didn't say that. >> i'm interested in what is the circumstance. that takes clarity of mind and an openness in some ways maybe some humility but i do strive for that. >> humility is not a term often heard in politics, here in sacramento and certainly not in our nation's capitol. >> does washington have some things to learn? >> some of the people are afraid to pass a tax because it affects the economy. we created a million jobs with that new temporary tax. but we also cut and we've made cuts that i think even in washington they have been reluctant to do. they got to get out of their comfort zone, give up the ideological edges and find what it means to be an american at heart. >> the long strange journey of
6:17 am
jerry brown is far from over. and in the man who spent much of his life wielding power, you can still recognize the searching seminarian who 40 years ago found himself at the helm of his state. if you could say something to that 36-year-old now is there some advice you might give him? >> you know, i don't know that you can give advice to young men in a hurry. i don't think i would have listened to it. >> are you still in a hurry? >> i don't feel quite in a hurry, but i do feel the same zeal virtually every morning i get up excited about what i'm doing, ready to dig in and i can't even explain to you why. i just love being governor. i like what i'm doing. and i think we're making some progress. >> osgood: coming up. laurens hammond key to success.

6:20 am
an early 3d movie and a bridge table that automatically shuffled and then dealt the cards. >> never has there been such an instrument available. >> osgood: his biggest break through was 1934 he patented the organ that bears his name. thanks to a device known as the tonewheel generator the hammond organ produced sounds to rival those of a full-size pipe organ. the hammond quickly became a big seller embraced by amateurs, churches and radio soap opera,s countlessless pop musicians through the years. that's a hammond we're hearing in procol harum's psychedelic hit "whiter shade of pale." keyboardist keith emerson of the group. emerson lake and palmer famous lohan handled his hammond on stage.

6:25 am
>> there is this flickery home movie of an elderly henri matisse in a hurry with his giant scissors cutting odd flop tee leaf forms out of paper that his assistants would eventually pin to the walls of his home studio in the south of france. in the last years of his life, matisse, one of the most famous painters in the world, all but gave up painting for these huge colorful collages made out of cut paper. most people think of cutting colored paper as something children do and that there's a simplicity. >> what i might say is that what he's doing is reducing form to its essentials that's one of his great achievements. >> curator jodi hauptman is one of the organizers of "henri matisse, the cutouts" at the

6:27 am
a means to an end. a tool. until in 1943 when matisse was commissioned to produce a book called "jazz." >> there are 20 images in the book he uses cut paper to compose each plate. >> matisse liked the look of the stuck on bits of cut paper. but when the book was printed all that texture was lost. suddenly he realized cutouts could be important. a new art form. >> i went to visit him and he had the "jazz" series out all around the room. and he said, it's the work of an invalid. and of course he still has the urge to go and to do more. >> paul matisse, an artist himself, a sound cup for remembers his grandfather as

driven to work, no matter what the personal cost. >> there were all sorts of issues. and he wasn't a cozy person, but mostly it was his intensity that drove what happened around him. >> a man who had to create even though from 1940 on, until his death in 1954 at the age of 84, matisse was practically house bound as a result of a succession of near fatal illnesses. so with shapes cut out of paint paper he conjured up the world on his walls. even a swimming pool that filled a room. >> matisse is known to have said, he told his assistant call a cab and let us go to a swimming pool. he wanted to see divers. he got there there were no divers, let's go home i'm going
6:29 am
to make my own swimming pool that's what he did. >> carl buchberg the senior conservator at the museum of modern art which owned the swimming pool. >> one of the pieces is that we want to show how matisse lived with these works. they were all pinned up. >> it was buchberg's painstaking four year conservation of the swimming pool that led to the exhibition. >> you can see the pins, we want people to see the pins. >> there they are. the amazing thing about the swimming pool is that you're seeing from all directions at once, above the swimmers, below them alongside them as they thrash about in the white sunlight and whop pe blue water. in the blue nudes it's possible to see that his cutouts were anything but simple or child like. they were carefully reworked and rethought. >> he calls the cutouts drawings with scissors or carving into
6:30 am
color like sculpture. >> matisse considered this chapel in the south of france his masterpiece. from the stained glass windows to the priests vestments the designs were based on cutouts. after surviving poor health and horrors of world war ii, scissoring away, matisse experienced what he considered a whole new life. his cutouts exploded in size and exuberance. he compared cutting to flying. >> he did not go back to painting. he had discovered a new world. and he was just going to explore it. >> paul matisse had seen some of his grandfather's cutouts as works in progress, pinned up on walls but never so many together. they are a marvel, even to him. >> i think he was just having the time of his life at this

7:04 am
chrome arsenic. >> feces human feces. >> doesn't matter. >> it's named after the weapon that biblical david used to deal with the problem of goliath. as shown in a new documentary called simply "slingshot" kamen's team has already successfully tested a small number of these devices in villages in latin america and africa. >> this was this before it went through this and here, take a cup. >> good water that created using tiny bit of electricity. the slingshot runs on batteries solar cells or even methane from animal dung. still, at a cost of $100,000 each slingshots are too expensive to be practical.
7:05 am
so kamen has gone looking for partners starting with coca-cola. the company that has the capacity to put vending machines nearly anywhere was first on board. you're not at all even a little bit uncomfortable in these small villages that you're producing clean water but it's a big ad for coca-cola? >> well, this we put on there because they were just such a great supporter. i think the coca-cola company over time has made it very clear they weren't in this to sell coca-cola. >> dean kamen holds more than 400 u.s. and foreign patents. >> i'm a died in the wool capital list, without making money i couldn't do the things i do. money gives you freedom, it gives you flexibility, it gives you resources to do things. >> royalties from his many inventions allow kamen to employ 500 engineers and technicians at his company deka research. employees who don't have to sell anything, they just create

diabetics. later the first home dialysis machine. he began work on wheelchair to put disabled on a whole new level. >> i have two little points on the ground. i'm like a ballerina here. >> kamen calls it the i-bot. the eye level robotic chair. >> you're not looking down at somebody stuck in a chair. getting around is important. standing up is about dignity. we can have a pushing contest. >> one of us is going down. >> it's not me. >> my gosh. you're right. >> it took 15 years more than $50 million to mimic how we balance and manage to stay up right. >> if you don't even use it, just lean forward to shake hands. >> oh, my, gosh. >> now lean back. >> i'm done. the i-bot can negotiate curbs and with some practice even

climb stairs. it's the same technology that led to his best known invention the segway. his personal transporter was introduced in 2001 with great fanfare as a replacement for the automobile. but it hasn't quite lived up to the hype. at all disappointed that it hasn't caught on the way you had hoped? >> it's early to say what is going to replace cars in big cities. why get in to a 2-3,000 pound machine to move a mile in the middle of a big city. i don't what will be used but i'm pretty sure i know what won't be used, a car. >> waiting for the world to catch up to him hasn't stopped kamen from barreling ahead on all kinds of fronts. >> you want to use this to pick up a grape? pick up your cell phone? hold a baby? open a door? >> to replace the hook, this is what kamen dreams will one day be standard issue for injured

them. hi, i'm dean. >> kamen always looking ahead is also in search of the next generation of scientists, like aiden hughes. >> we also have solutions where we come down here with our robot. >> when aiden was seven he says he dreamed of being a baseball player. now he's 12. and in an entirely different kind of competition. his teammates are part of first organization that kamen created 25 years ago to attract young people to science by offering them the opportunity to compete with robots of their own designs. >> this really showing me how cool would engineering be if i were to go in to that field. >> the average kid on is the can tell you the name of a dozen football players or basketball players or hollywood stars, none of them can tell you the name of any famous living scientist or engineer.
7:11 am
>> to date, more than one million kids have participated in first competitions from more than 80 countries. just last week a live, international webcast kicked off this year's competition. kamen, who never married or had children of his own sees these budding scientists as his legacy. passing on to them not just the love of technology, but a lesson he learned from his own grand forth. >> you give until it hurts. if it doesn't hurt, you didn't give enough. so i said to my grandfather, all right, i will give more than i take. but i've taken a lot. so if i can work on water for the world, if i can work on medical products to make the world a better place then i don't have to feel guilty being in this giant playground called the universe doing all sorts of

7:15 am
resulting pulling of a major american movie from theaters, at least temporarily sent a shiver down the spine of many americans. little did any of us realize that the hacking incident was prelude to much more serious attack on free speech, artistic expression and especially humor and satire. i won't pretend to understand the mindset of the extremists who massacred 12, including the four cartoonist and editor of charlie hebdo. how anyone could be so offended by cartoons to kill a human being. the satirists were murdered in cold blood for simply doing their job. over the years, "mad" magazine has offended many powerful people including many in the religious community. mad never makes fun of people's beliefs but we were merciless on the catholic church for covering up child abuse scandal.
7:16 am
after 9/11 we wept after jerry falwell hard for blaming the 'tox on gays, feminists abortionist and the aclu. but we knew we shared a common set of values and rules of engagement the worse that could happen to us was that we would get a stern letter from their lawyer. not once did we fear for our safety. those are the good old days. when "sunday morning" approached me about doing this commentary i paused. my first consideration was, did i have something interesting to add to the discussion? you can be the judge of that. but i also paused because of this unsettling new world i couldn't know the ramifications of my decision. by the simple act of appearing on camera, denouncing the terrorists and defending the rights of cartoonists and satirists would i be drawing a target on my back? unfortunately these days those are not unfounded fierce. the far fact that i had the fierce score one for the terrorist. on the other hand come monday

7:22 am
alabama, which ended with 25,000 people converging on the state capital. the marchers' aim was straight ahead. to tell the governor to stop letting cities like selma keep black people from registering to vote. >> dr. king, i want to help, tell me how. >> well, mr. president -- central to the film is king's relationship with president lyndon johnson who thinks king's pursuit of voting rights is a bad idea. it will rile up congressmen he needs to pass his war on poverty legislation. >> in the south there have been thousands of racially motivated murders. we need your help, dr. king. it cannot wait. >> one big issue i got 101. >> in the movie lbj's stubborn inaction is the main motivation for king to provoke selma's notoriously racist hot headed sheriff to attack peaceful protesters. that's where the supposed
7:23 am
inaccuracies come in. joseph califano, a former aide to johnson, says the president was on board the whole time and that the movie slanders johnson to make king even more a rebel hero. so, is "selma" fair to lbj? i've spent the last week immersed in biographies and listening to lbj's white house tapes and i'm bound to say not entirely. it's true that early in his presidency johnson wanted to concentrate on his war on poverty. but he was passionate about social justice. he fought hard for voting rights without any push from king. in part, i admit, to show up the late president kennedy's brother, robert, whom he hated. having said that "selma" gets about 90% of the story right. it's still a great film. >> that they do their power to keep us safe.
7:24 am
>> the spew pen tucson british actor david oyelowo the best performance of the year. king looks like he bears the weight of millions of souls. it costs him, ages him. >> you can tell -- lbj scenes they're not wholely off. these men were tie tan particular forces. they were shrewd wary they manipulated open other. yes they had their eyes on the prize but they tempered their emotions they were always playing the long game. we can still learn a lot from them and from this superb film. >> osgood: review from david edelstein. now to bob schieffer in washington for look what's ahead on "face the nation." good morning bob. >> schieffer: good morning, charles. well, attorney general eric holder is one of many law
