5:03 am
>> come on. >> and welcome to the weekend. we have a great show for you this morning. we are going to take you to england where the future of the world's chocolate may rest in this building. it is the cocoa quarantine center. >> plus an empire of mexican and latin restaurants all began with a chance encounter that changed his life. you'll meet him. and performing in our saturday's session, work earned comparisons to marvin gaye. you will hear songs from the debut record later in the show. dramatic developments in the investigation of that deadly amtrak derailment in philadelphia on tuesday. new surveillance video shows the train speeding down the tracks
5:04 am
and leaving the rails in a shower of sparks as the national transportation safety board tries to determine the cause of the crash. the fbi is launching its own investigation. >> that came after word that some kind of projectile or rock or possibly a bullet may have hit the windshield of the locomotive before it derailed killing eight passengers and injuring dozens of others. two other trains in the area may have been struck as well. chris van cleave is in philadelphia with the latest. >> reporter: good morning. these new developments mark a major turn in the investigation. when we first heard about the regional commuter service being struck we were told it was unrelated to the derailment. now with the damage to derailed train and possibility of a second amtrak train being hit the ntsb is asking the fbi to take a closer look. >> new security camera video of
5:05 am
the moment amtrak train 188 hit its tragic end the national transportation safety board reported friday in addition to the engineer two assistant conducters have been interviewed, one revealing new information shortly after leaving the philadelphia train station she heard an engineer report his train being hit. the ntsb is also aware of reports of a washington bound amtrak train being struck by an object. damage can be seen in this picture. both incidents in the same general area. >> our investigation is not independently confirmed this information but we have seen damage to the left-hand lower portion of the amtrak windshield that we have asked the fbi to come in and look at for us. >> reporter: while investigators say engineer brandon bostian has been cooperative he does not
5:06 am
remember the incident. >> he is required to sound the bell as he goes past the station stop. he did that and recalled doing that. he has no recollection of anything past that. >> friends say he has a life long love of trains and describe him as careful. >> he was very thoreoughthorough, always on time. he always had his highlighter highlighting speeds and restrictions. >> reporter: with the fbi looking at the damage in this major new development of the investigation it's still unknown why the train accelerated from 70 to 106 miles per hour heading into a sharp curve. retired train engineer worked for amtrak for 36 years and says engineers are required to know the speed limit on the tracks at all times explaining that every 23 seconds engineers have to respond to an alarm designed to keep them alert. >> it is unusual for something
5:07 am
like this to happen. there is a distraction. there is something that happened and the only person that knows what happened is that engineer. >> reporter: we have also learned that philadelphia district attorney's office is following the investigation and gathering information. it is too early to know if that will turn into a criminal investigation. >> thank you. for more on the investigation into the amtrak train we turn to cbs news national transportation safety expert former chairman of the national transportation safety board. good morning. >> good morning. >> what do you make of the new developments that some kind of projectile hit the windshield and cracked it? >> it could be a very important element. remember that accidents are never just one thing. they are a chain of events that come together. you take one link of the chain out and the accident won't happen. clearly with the fbi's entrance
5:08 am
into the investigation we will get good information to understand what this was and how it might have gotten there. >> i want to ask you about positive train control basically something in the train would have taken a signal from the stations to determine how fast the train was going. if this is the busiest section of amtrak why didn't this have the control? >> it was being prepared for it. it may have had it in the coming weeks. they and mr. bordman has committed to having that completed as required by congressional mandate. >> that mandate came down in 2008. it was all the tracks in the country were supposed to be done by now. why haven't they been? >> it's a very expensive proposition. even with that said i was the chairman at the time and we were very, very excited about the proposition that in seven years and it seems like a long time and did to me when i was sitting
5:09 am
there at the board, we thought this was going to actually be completed, but because it is such a very expensive proposition and there are so many miles, 62,000 miles of track in the united states it took longer than the railroads anticipated and than we anticipated. >> we want to draw on your expertise and ask what are they asking him? >> he was interviewed yesterday. remember we are not a criminal investigative body. we are a safety investigative body. we want to find out what the truth is. remember from our point of view that is all we are looking for. we are not pointing fingers. we are not trying to find blame. we are trying to find the truth so we can understand exactly what happened and prevent it from happening again with the recommendations we are going to make. >> thanks for being with us this now to the death sentence for the boston marathon bomber. the federal jury that convicted dzhokhar tsarnaev in the 2013
5:10 am
attack that killed four people and injured more than 260 spent 14 hours deliberating his fate. >> they announced their unanimous decision friday afternoon. and the u.s. attorney put it quote, he'll pay for his crimes with his life. don has been covering this trial and is joining us from boston. good morning don. >> reporter: good morning. over the past ten weeks of trial, the guilty verdict might have been a foregone conclusion but this result was anything but. this area is traditionally opposed to the death penalty, but in the end his attorney's words were not enough to outweigh dzhokhar tsarnaev's own actions. for two years boston has been a city holding its collective breath for this. >> i think that it's justice. >> reporter: but inside dzhokhar tsarnaev showed little emotion standing with head bowed as his fate was announced. first responders victims and family members were relieved.
5:11 am
>> this is nothing to celebrate. this is a matter of justice. he's going to go to hell. that's where he wanted to go but he's going to get there quicker than he thought. >> as a father i put myself in bill richard's shoes at that time. i think all of us feel that way. if you have children you understand how important it is to protect children and to be there for children. >> reporter: federal prosecutors knew they had an uphill battle in massachusetts, a state that outlawed the death penalty in its own cases. it's likely this is the critical image of the injury, ptsarnaev is putting a bomb near this family. he denies his involvement in the bomb that kill eded bill richards.
5:12 am
>> that's the strong message we sent today. >> reporter: the defense centered on the argument it was the older brother tamerlan who made the younger brother get involved. >> if nobody can see into another person's mind our job was to try to recognize the facts and the evidence that would help the jury make that decision for themselves. >> reporter: the defense team admitted tsarnaev's guilty from the beginning but pleaded for mercy. ultimately neither that nor his youth nor tales of his disfunctional youth swayed the jury. but what did sway the death was the deaths, the injuries the way dzhokhar and his brother committed these crimes.
5:13 am
sentencing will come over the next two months at which time he'll be transferred to death row in terre haute, indiana, and his attorneys will launch a lengthy appeals process. >> tom thank you. we'll take a closer look at how this shook out in the court and what could be next for tsarnaev. here is our cbs legal analyst, good morning ricky. we'll start off with where don left off. how big of a role do you think this is unanimously this kid showed no remorse. how does that affect the outcome? >> that was the critical factor in this case. you have to understand that the only remorse that dzhokhar tsarnaev showed was for himself. he was stoic and had no emotion. when did he cry? when his aunt came in to talk about his childhood. the only person that he felt badly about, the jurors could find, was him and not about any of these victims. when you listen and you look at the carnage, at the horror of
5:14 am
his act, these jurors went into a war zone. there was no first responder who attended to every victim who went to every part of that bombing, who saw every body being pulled apart. these jurors went through each act. and this defendant looked straight ahead. >> the cornerstone or one of the cornerstones of the defense was that he was ultimately influenced by his older brother. that he wouldn't have done this without that influence. did the jury basically reject that? >> well, three of the jurors did not. three of the jurors go along with the mitigating factors, having to do with tamerlan the older brother, really being in charge of and over dzhokhar tsarnaev. and all the defense needed was one of the three. however, those three finding that his older brother was the cause, without tamerlan dzhokhar would not have been a
5:15 am
jihadist, even they had to say the horror of the act, the carnage, the war zone had to outweigh why he became a jihadist. and the other factor is the terrorism expert said this anyone can become radicalized. it doesn't matter by whom. they still are responsible for their own actions. >> fascinating. a lot of appeals coming up. thank you for being with us this morning. coming up later here one of the most important eyewitnesss in the tsarnaev case never took the stand. we'll tell you how one photographer's work helped convince the jury to vote for the death penalty. and the bodies of all eight people aboard the u.s. marines helicopter that crashed in nepal were recovered. they were on a relief mission for earthquake victims. seth doane is joining us with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the investigators called the crash site severe. they had not yet positively
5:16 am
identified all of the victims and had not yet determined the cause of the crash. that missing huey helicopter was ultimately found after three days of searching high up in the mountains. it was located at an altitude of 11,200 feet roughly halfway between kathmandu and mt. everest. the six u.s. marines on board along with two nepalese soldiers were delivering aid to remote regions tuesday night, specifically delivering tarps and rice to hard-hit areas after this earthquake. but their helicopter did not return from that mission. it's part of a wider humanitarian aid mission that involves about 300 u.s. troops who are currently in nepal. landslides have been a huge issue cutting off roads and that means cutting off aid. so the helicopters are a real lifeline, sometimes the only way to get aid in and to get those who were hurt in the disaster
5:17 am
out. on friday president obama offered his condolences to the families who, anthony, are grappling with this terrible news. >> seth doane in beijing. thank you. sources are getting closer to the ancient city of palmyra. that is one of the most magnificent archaeological sites. there are fears that isis will destroy the site as it has with other ancient ruins. in iraq islamic forces hold a large part of the city of ramadi. this is a major setback for the iraqi government and they are sending reinforcements in an attempt to regain control of ramadi. violent storms threaten a third of the nation today from texas all the way to minnesota. severe storms moved through parts of nebraska on friday with thunder and lightning and dark threatening clouds large hail fell in the area.
5:18 am
100 miles away a tornado touched down with no injuries or major damage reports. for more we'll get to meteorologist ed kern of our chicago station. good morning. >> good morning, bonita. we are looking at active weather throughout the country here. we have the potential for severe weather but the greatest potential lies here in the orange and red area for enhanced and also a moderate chance of severe storms. now, within this region from nebraska to kansas to oklahoma we have a chance for significant severe. that means strong tornadoes of ef-2 or greater and tornadoes that have a long life and also large, destructive hail of two-plus inches. and that region is from wichita falls, texas all the way up to southern nebraska. bonita? >> meteorologist ed curran thank you. in california intense rain caused some flooding but it is just a drop in the bucket for the drought-stricken state. from san francisco to san diego,
5:19 am
streets were flooded and cars and trucks went nowhere. weather experts say california's climate may be starting to change and could become kepter in the next year. also in california, a new law that took effect this year has made big changes for chickens. it requires farmers to house hens in cages with enough space to stretch their wings. the new standard is backed by animal rights advocates but there are worries about higher egg prices. john blackstone has more. >> reporter: in california these may be the best of times for chickens with a new state law requiring they have more room to move. here in san diego, 8,000 are now living cage-free in frank hilaker's barn. >> i like to call it disneyland for chickens. >> reporter: hilaker is scrambling to meet the new regulations, often at great extents. >> business is not all it's cracked up to be.
5:20 am
>> reporter: egg prices in california doubled in 2014 but then quick to competitive business in which producers are reluctant to raise prices. so in a way the egg producers are playing chicken right now. >> i like that yeah. >> reporter: you told me there's no evidence that the chickens are really better off. >> by some criteria they are better off, by other criteria they are worse off. >> reporter: chickens can be more vulnerable to predators, those kept in big open barns may be more likely to get injured. still, it has to be better than being crammed in a tiny cage. >> some people look at apartments in san francisco and new york city and say, how in the world can people live in those little cages? but i don't go there either. >> i don't know. i'm not a chicken behaviorist. their brains are about that big. >> reporter: what we do know is the chicken's got a little. i'm john blackstone, woodland, california. time to show you some of
5:21 am
this morning's headlines. "the wall street journal" reports that bill and hillary clinton earned more than $25 million from speaking engagements over the past 16 months. financial disclosure forums submitted the federal election commission showed democratic presidential contender hillary clinton also earning $5 million from her book "hard choices." "usa today" reports starbucks has a warning for its customers who purchased items using their mobile phones. it says hackers can syphon money from mobile app accounts. customers who were targeted won't be charged for the stolen goods. it is not just this company, i thought uber had a similar issue as well. "the los angeles times" says google plans to send their fleet of self-driving cars out to the roads. they will hit the streets of california sometime this summer. other companies are taking note apple and uber are fine-tuning their own prototypes. a quarter million self-driving vehicles may be sold every year
5:22 am
by 2025. and "the new york times" says fao schwartz on fifth avenue here in new york will close in two months. it's the victim of rising rents agrowing competition from online retailers. the store has been in business for that years and played a cameo in the 1988 movie "big" when actor tom hanks danced on the giant keyboard. the owners are hoping to find a new location. it's such a flagship in new york. >> if you are old enough as some of us are, it's moved before. so it's not a huge shock. >> you remember 145 years? >> exactly. when you're 145 years old you know these things. all right. it's about 22 minutes after the hour, now here's a look at the weather for your weekend.
5:23 am
. americans gamble away $70 billion a year on state run lottery. what happens to that money is more shocking. you may think mitt romney had the fight of his life in 2012 but last night he got into the ring with evander holyfield.
5:24 am
5:25 am

looking for one of these? yoplait. smooth, creamy, and craved by the whole family.
5:27 am
you are the most beautiful, kind generous loving person i met and you are my mom. that's in a book called letters to my mom. what a touching thing for a daughter to say about her mother. a mother/daughter conflict can be strong. >> i think it is something that we all go through where i want to be my own person. i'm not my mom. i have my own views on life and then i think it's her turning 30 and also me being of an age where i accept her for what she is. she accepts me. it's kind of our relationship is
5:28 am
in a whole different stage right now. >> the faces do change as your kids grow up. they are supposed to. >> did you know gayle's kids surprised her for mother's day. >> they said they wouldn't make it and i had a bit of an attitude. i was going to speak about it on monday. i was going to speak on it on monday. >> they knew something was up. >> you guys have so much success and a lot of places where people get around the table and talk. what is special and different and why the talk? >> we know we are fortunate that we have a unique relationship. you know how it is when you are building a show. some of it is magic and doesn't work. we have been lucky. i was just talking about this. the other thing i think we have is there are so many shows with women that are conflict driven and about unkindness and the sense that everybody has to win. i think we feel like we are a team.
5:29 am
5:30 am
some people in sicily are getting a spectacular nightly show courtesy of towering mt. etna. the volcano has been erupting since tuesday and the nighttime views are amazing. our top story one of the most important witnesses of the boston marathon bombing never took the stand and never said a word to the jury. what he saw that day in april 2013 was key to the prosecution's case against dzhokhar tsarnaev. here is don daler. >> reporter: be it the stars above yosemite or the skyline of boston what he prefers to take
5:31 am
pictures of is beauty. what the waiter and amateur photographer is best known for now is anything but. >> it was a beautiful day in boston. i had the day off of work which doesn't usually happen and i wanted to go out and be a part of the festivities in the city. >> reporter: he was 50 feet away from the restaurants when the bombs went off. >> in an instant i was just a huge blast of white light, a loud noise and complete silence. i just forgot everything and started taking photographs. i felt it needed to be done. >> reporter: frame after frame captured devastating effects of the terrorist attack in the midst of screams somehow remains calm. >> i was just shooting. i wasn't scared. i wasn't crying.
5:32 am
i did a lot of crying afterwards, but it was just complete calm. i was extremely conflicted taking the photographs at the same time. i kept telling myself stop thinking. just shoot. you need to do this. no one else around is doing this. >> you discovered something you didn't know you had. >> i guess you can say that. >> reporter: prosecutors used the photos to show jurors what home made bombs can do to bodies and lives, even lives not physically harmed. >> do you think you will get those images out of your head? >> no. absolutely not. >> there is a very famous photograph at the vietnam war of an execution and won him a pulitzer. he said later in life that that image haunted him his whole life. do you understand that?
5:33 am
>> 100%. i see that little boy every single day. and it's not going to go away. >> that photo of 3-year-old made the cover of the "new york times." >> i was sad for him and his family. >> reporter: maybe it is for that reason that hunk returned to the marathon every year since, not to relive the horror that it was, but to honor the beauty that it is. for "cbs this morning" don daler, boston. >> it's really interesting because he had a journalist instinct there. what he did ended up being extremely important but he understood that right at the time. >> it's amazing that he had the calm to capture those images. i don't think a lot of photo journalists would have been able to watch all of that.
5:34 am
hard to watch. americans spend a lot on lottery tickets. the states are supposed to spend the money on education, but do they? we have an eye opening report. here is a look at the weather for your weekend. medical news in our morning rounds including how taking a simple vitamin can greatly reduce your risk of skin cancer. why cash not counseling or drugs may be the best way to get smokers to quit. you're watching "cbs this morning."
5:35 am
people with type 2 diabetes come from all walks of life. if you have high blood sugar ask your doctor about farxiga. it's a different kind of medicine that works by removing some sugar from your body. along with diet and exercise farxiga helps lower blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes. with one pill a day, farxiga helps lower your a1c. and, although it's not a weight-loss or blood-pressure drug farxiga may help you lose weight and may even lower blood pressure when used with certain diabetes medicines. do not take if allergic to farxiga or its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction include rash, swelling, or difficulty breathing or swallowing. if you have any of these symptoms stop taking farxiga and seek medical help right away. do not take farxiga if you have severe kidney problems, are on dialysis, or have bladder cancer. tell your doctor right away if you have blood or red color in your urine or pain while you urinate. farxiga can cause serious side effects including dehydration,

time now for morning rounds. important news for people at high risk for skin cancer. the most common form of cancer in this country. >> nonmelanoma cancers are found in more than 2 million americans each year. research finds a simple over-the-counter vitamin may lower the recurrence rate. >> after multiple bouts of skin cancer 48-year-old eric brez low knows he has to be vigilant for the rest of his life. >> we do body-checks just to be proactive and make sure that nothing is out of hands. >> reporter: the skin cancers were basil and squamous cells, not melanoma. uv rays can damage skin cells and lead to cancer. in a recent post to raise awareness 27-year-old shows facial scars after having been

treated for same skin cancers. a new study follows patients with at least two previous bouts of skin cancer. one was given a group for one year and the other a placebo. the group taking the vitamin had 23% reduction in skin cancer recurance. dr. jessica krants. >> i am excited about this study. it looks like patients who have a history of skin cancers will be able to take a regular vitamin from the drugstore and reduce the risk of future skin cancers. >> what good is it if it is not totally preventing? >> some have up to 100 skin cancers a year. for those patients who reduce by 25% the number of lesions they are having surgery for or having other treatments for is very significant. >> those numbers are just stunning. how could this change the
5:40 am
strategy of protecting people from the sun? >> this is early research. for people who have had at least three previous skin cancers. everybody wants to say you just take a pill and i don't have to worry about anything. i want to emphasize this is not going to replace protecting yourself with protective clothing and making sure you don't get a sunburn. a new report crunches the numbers on the staggering cost of prescription drugs and finds more than half a million americans need more than $50,000 worth of medication last year a jump of 63% from 2013. and the number nearly tripled. >> i did a double take when i saw those numbers. it turns out that most people taking these drugs, the highest drugs for the baby boomer population 60% of the people whose drug costs are $100,000 or more are taking ten or more drugs from four or more providers. it is really shocking numbers. the trend is going to continue
5:41 am
to go up. the population is expected to continue to age for the next two decades. >> what runs accounting for cost snz. >> one are drugs to cure hepatitis c. used to be a chronic disease. it's a big ticket item but the drug companies are saying you get cured and then that is it. then the cancer drugs. this is interesting. a lot of them are over $100,000 a year, some of them are. the final category are compounding pharmacies. i should say these definitely serve a role to make specific medicines. but there has been abuse and there was a series last week done that found that the military was being billed up to $15,000 a month for these creams for veterans to relieve their chronic pain. so i think there is definitely room for abuse and room for improvement. >> we have been in the position where you get a prescription
5:42 am
back and are shocked but you feel like you have no choice. is there anything that is proactive? >> patients can play a role. the beigpicture is going to involve politics and policy change to change the way it happens. in the meantime small patients can do -- for instance the report found the more providers are prescribed the more drugs you take. >> researchers learned a little bit of cash can go a long way to help smokers kick the habit. the study shows financial incentives are more effective compared to free access to counseling. the most effective technique requires an up front cash deposit that will be taken away if they didn't quit. more than half were smoke free after six months. >> we like to separate money and health. i remember i had a patient who
5:43 am
is a 2 1/2 packs a day smoker. she decided to quit. her daughter would take the cash she would have spent on cigarettes and put it away. she put them in an envelope. at the end of the year they had thousands of dollars. and she took her daughter on a cruise. that is how she rewarded herself. it kept her smoke free for the year. >> there is something that rubs me the wrong way. it's not that effective. it is 10% to 15% versus 6%. the idea of paying somebody to stop doing the vice there is something that says why do that. on the other hand it costs more than $5,000 a year for employers to keep up the health for people who smoke. at the end of the day -- >> maybe the money jump starts it and gets you -- >> it's not all that effective.
5:44 am
anything that helps a little bit. finally, if you are wondering about your health get a grip. researchers in canada say the firmness of a handshake can help a person's health. researchers believe grip strength can be a better measure of heart health than blood pressure. this is interesting. >> when i get my hand crushed by people i'm glad you are in good health. >> the noodle handshake is the worst. >> there is a very specific way. it's one thing you tell your kids have a strong handshake. when they move the handout like this and crush your fingers -- there is an editorial that says grip strength is maybe a bio marker for aging. >> sorry. >> thank you both very much. coming up the real cost of

5:48 am
the reason they do that is the lottery is a massive money maker. >> last year alone lottery sales totalled about $68 billion. >> 68 billion more than on movie tickets, more than others combined. it means americans spent more on the lottery than they did on america. >> he is a very funny guy. john oliver wasn't joking. last year americans gambled more than $70 billion on lottery games and a lot came from people
5:49 am
who can at least afford foolose the money. what did you find in this story? >> millions of people play the lottery. the lottery is played among those who are lower income. we spend more money on the lottery than on sports tickets, movie tickets, video games, books. it is astonishing. it is more than an enormous share of entertainment. half of all ticket sales according to duke university occur among the poorest third of the country. a lot of people are considering this not just fun but a bit of an investment. they are being preyed on for their hope. >> you liken this to a prayer against poverty which i thought was an interesting expression. >> it truly is. one interesting study that they did is said in order to prove this is not just entertainment but a prayer against poverty let's compare it to something else. movie tickets.
5:50 am
this clever professor said let's look at poorer people. as you get poorer do you spend more on movie ticket? no. do you spend more on lottery tickets? yes. it is clearly something lower income people think is -- it is as high as $800 per person in rhode island. they are spending this as a kind of prayer combined with savings. >> a lot of people might say it is a voluntary choice. do you feel they are being targeted to buy more tickets? >> we know they are being targted and that lottery tickets being advertised the most in low income areas precisely because marketing 101 lower income people are more likely to buy the ticket. the reason i think this is problematic is you look back 40 years agoeand didn't have state lotteries in 43 states you had it in one. in 1980 you had it in about a

dozen. now they are basically around the country and it is a way to fund government to tax for education, for economic development. >> they rely on it. >> they absolutely rely on it. it is a way to enact a tax without calling it a tax. calling it voluntary spending. that is precisely because you are asking lowest income people to pay for this. >> who is saving money? who doesn't have to put in money? the state doesn't have to tax richer people. the corporate income taxes no longer account for as much money to fund education, environmental upkeep, economic development as it used to. now it truly is a kind of thing where they rely on the prayers of the poor in order to fund the essentials of government. >> thank you very much. mitt romney like you have never seen him before. we show you how his fight went down and look at the past

and enjoy special savings. across america people, like basketball hall of famer dominique wilkins, are taking charge of their type 2 diabetes... ...with non-insulin victoza. for a while, i took a pill to lower my blood sugar but it didn't get me to my goal. so i asked my doctor about victoza. he said victoza works differently than pills and comes in a pen. victoza is proven to lower blood sugar and a1c. it's taken once a day, any time. and the needle is thin. victoza is not for weight loss but it may help you lose some weight. victoza is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza is not insulin. do not take victoza if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2,
6:12 am
or if you are allergic to victoza or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include swelling of face lips, tongue or throat fainting or dizziness, very rapid heartbeat problems breathing or swallowing, severe rash or itching. tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis) which may be fatal. stop taking victoza and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis, such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen or from your abdomen to your back with or without vomiting. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. taking victoza with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are nausea, diarrhea, and headache. some side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. if your pill isn't giving you the control you need... ask your doctor about non-insulin victoza.

6:14 am
bored? a moment from last night's late show with david letterman as he prepares to take his leave after 33 years. in an interview for tomorrow's sunday morning jane pauley asked why he turned down an offer to take his desk with him. >> somebody said do you want the desk and i thought really? what would i do with the desk? >> you would belove it. five years from now, future dave is thinking i could have had the desk? >> five years from now a nurse will be feeding me rice cereal. that is what will be happening. the desk the tangible things don't mean anything to me really. it's the music and the acts and on and on and on. i had a chance to buy johnny's
6:15 am
desk years and years ago. somebody was selling it on ebay. i thought if johnny didn't want it. i don't know. it's a thing. your life is more than a thing, isn't it? >> you can see the full interview tomorrow on sunday morning here on cbs. david letterman's exit from the ed sullivan theater here in new york will end an era for late night television. let's talk about that and about the future. chief critic of tv guide, gooderngood morning. i heard somebody say he was not just a comedian. what is his imprint? >> i think he is really raising the comic ambition of late night shows and mainstream that everyone uses now. if you watch a lot of his early shows you see ideas that he used
6:16 am
pop up on shows and you saw jimmy fallon conducting an interview on helium. letterman did that with jane paul pauley back in the '80s. >> the absurdism that he is making fun of himself. the comedy he established on his late night show on nbc and cbs. >> it has been interesting to watch because the spark is back. i don't know if it fully disappeared but it dimmed down somewhat. >> got a spring in the step now. like he is recapturing the joy in doing the show. sort of get the energy back as it is about to end. it has been wonderful watching the shows. >> i think i have been wondering why the shows seem really
6:17 am
powerful. incredible stars coming out and people love him and letterman never seemed like the most emotional guy. he is always very guarded. and certainly not sentimental. there is something very moving about seeing someone like that the show becomes nostalgic and sentimental. i think that effects you. >> it's interesting because i look at fallon and they sing and dance. there is something about letterman and crankiness that i found charming. how do you think the legacy transitions into the newest guys we watch at night? >> i think it doesn't. that is the part that will end, is my guess. we are now in the jimmy fallon world. jimmy fallon has had a huge amount of success having boyish enthusiasm in which his
6:18 am
relationship to show business is different than letterman's was. i think jimmy kimmal there is certain attitude of irony in what he presents pthe stunts they do and the video stuff and i think he is probably greatest proponent. the show doesn't have the same unpredictability. the thing about david letterman he was playing with the late night talk show would be. >> he is so low tech. >> the real exfactor seems to be what is steven colbert going to be? there is anticipation? >> he did a bit on wednesday where he got on stage and his
6:19 am
standup was who am myself because he is in search of new persona. he has to reinvent himself and reinvent the late show as a process. >> i was thinking about it it is a completely unique challenge. i don't think there was a situation where everybody knows and doesn't know. gl it is interesting to see where they head. >> late night really when you come down to it after jon stewart steps down jimmy kimmel is the old man in late night. >> thank you very much. thanks for being with us. up next from sleek electric cars to thunderous space rockets he is going places fast. you meet the author of a compelling biology . sirloin third pound burger won't be around long. if you miss out,

how did you do that? >> it took a while. i did a cover story and we had good report and he agreed to talk with me and we spent eight months. >> the book begins with a question that he asks you, do you think i'm insane. do you? >> i think going to mars and things do sound crazy to some people. i don't think he is insane just chasing big dreams that other people wouldn't go for. for him it is important about the future of man and sort of the most basic thing we should be going after. >> his father was an engineer. his mother was a model and dietician. where did this burning ambition come from? >> he read a lot of science fiction. he took it as a truth and calling and was a loner growing up. in the book you get to see what his childhood friends were like. i think he is trying to prove
6:25 am
himself a little bit to the world and show he can do great big things. >> spacex and tesla are transformational companies. the decision to start tesla nearly bankrupted him? >> in 2008 they almost go bankrupt. he was about to lose $220 million off of pay pal and going through a divorce. you see his life story is almost as good as the company story because he is in this huge personal crisis. >> there is one portion of the book that you know is getting a lot of attention and it is between a former employee and elon. the former employee claiming elon musk chided him. is there a truth to that story? >> i think it sounds like he runs around doing this to everybody. this came during that period when it was all hands on deck and people being asked to do
6:26 am
extraordinary things and employees had to be there all the time. today is a much different environment so taken out of the context of where it fits in the book. >> most people think of him in terms of tesla. the way you describe it and the way he describes it his driving ambition is space. >> he wants to make man a multi planetary species and thinks we might be in peril from terrible things and wants an exit strategy. >> absolutely fascinating. makes you realize that money is not a driving factor when you get into the book. thank you so much. coming up a look inside the world's chocolate fix. >> this unlikely facility west of london just might hold the key to the future of the world's chocolate in its hands. and you're helping to pay for it. we'll have the story coming up on "cbs this morning."
