i'm anthony mason along with dana jacobson and michelle miller. we begin this morning with the death of former president george herbert walker bush at the age of 94. for much of his life, mr. bush was dedicated to serving his country. he was a world war ii veteran, a congressman from texas, head of the cia, and, of course, a vice president. >> he served only one term in the white house after bill clinton defeated him in the '92 election. but his son, george w. bush, our 43rd president was elected to two terms. >> they are the only father and son following john adams and john quincy adams. norah o'donnell has more on the life of the 41st president. >> it was 2011 when president barack obama awarded george h.w. bush the highest honor a civilian can receive, medal of freedom. >> i'm a man who sees life in terms of missions. missions defined. and missions completed.
>> the son of a u.s. senator, he enlisted in the navy on his 18th birthday becoming the navy's youngest fighter pilot during world war ii. in fine te1944 his plane was sh in the pacific. >> i knew if someone didn't pick me up i would be captured. >> he returned home a hero. just weeks later he married barbara pierce. they had met at a christmas dance several years before. >> i think he's the wisest, smartest, most decent, caring person i know. >> after his gradation from yale in 1948, they moved to texas. he built an oil business and together they built a family. they would have six children, but their first daughter died of leukemia at age 3. >> that had a profound effect on me and on barbara. and i think that horrible incident drew us even closer together. >> what a day. >> in the early '60s, mr. bush
pivoted to politics. he won two terms in the u.s. house, then served presidents nixon and ford as u.n. embassy, envoy to china and director of the cia. in tine teen 1980 he became ron reagan's vice president. eight years later he won his party arizo party's nomination. >> i want a kinder and gent letter nation. >> he waged a successful presidential campaign. the 41st president called for a new world order and the global scene shifted rapidly. the berlin wall fell and then the soviet un cron. in panama, he sent troops to overthrow manuel noriega. >> the day of the dictator is over. >> but a battle with another dictator had only just begun when saddam hussein's iraqi forces rolled into kuwait, he
assemble a coalition. operation desert storm liberated in six weeks. his popularity was sky high after the work, but it plunged as he ran for re-election the next year against bill clinton and independent ross perreaulo. the promise he made came back to haunt him. >> read my lips, no new taxes. >> he did raise taxes and amid an economic slowdown he wound up losing in an electoral land slide. >> i couldn't do what ronald reagan, my friend and predecessor did so well, communicate effectively enough with the people. and that was my biggest short coming. >> president bush's legacy include a political dynasty. his son george served as governor of texas then president of the united states. son jeb was elected governor of florida and was a presidential contender. but perhaps his life's greatest legacy is his marriage to
barbara. they were together for 73 years, longer than any other president and first lady in u.s. history. >> our family has had a front row seat for the most amazing love story. >> at barbara's funeral, jeb bush read a love letter his father wrote his mother on their anniversary in 1994. >> i've climbed perhaps the highest mountain in the world but even that can't hold a candle to being barbara's husband. >> so sweet. the flag at the white house was lowered to half staff overnight, but president trump and first lady melania trump are mourning the death of george h.w. bush from abroad. major garrett is traveling with the president at the g-20 summit in boin necessary aires. good morning to you. >> they didn't get along, but this morning nothing but kind and complementry words about
bush from president trump. bush an exemplar that he ran so aggressively against. writing this morning on twitter president trump said, the former president led a beautiful, successful, and long life adding this note of personal observation, quote, whenever i was with him i saw his absolute joy for life and true tried in his family. his accomplishments were great from beginning to end. he was a truly wonderful man and will be missed by all. that tweet builds on a statement released earlier by the white house which read in part with sound judgment, common sense, and unflappable leadership, president bush guided our nation to the world to a peaceful conclusion of the cold war. as president he set the stage for decades of prosperity that have followed. and through all that he accomplished, he remained humble following the quiet call to service that gave him a clear sense of direction. dana, back to you in new york. >> major, we no you're with the
president there so we'll check in with you in a few minutes. mr. bush did dilate last night at his home in texas. omar villafranca is in texas at the church where the funeral for the former president he will be held. omar. >> reporter: good morning, dana. the president actually lived just a few blocks from where we're standing, but all eyes are on saint martin's amiss ka pal church behind me. it's the same church where his wife barbara had her services when they died earlier this year. as this news started to spread, we are seeing reaction from one of the most exclusive clubs in the world, people who call themselves the most powerful person in the world, the president of the united states. in fact, bill clinton who, of course, ran against george h.w. bush in the '92 presidential election and beat him and later formed a close friendship with him issued a statement reading in part, few americans have been or ever will be able to match
president bush's record of service to the united states. he never stopped serving. i saw it up close working with him on tsunami relief in asia and here at home after hurricane katrina. i am profoundly grateful for every minute i spent with president bush and will always hold our friendships as one of my life's greatest gifts. barack obama said america has lost a patriot and a humble servant. while our hearts are heavy today, they're also filled with gratitude. and george w. bush, the 43rd president of the united states said george h.w. bush was a man of the highest character and the best dad a son or daughter could ask for. we also wanted to show crow this tweet. it's from jim mcgrath who's the president's long-time spokesperson and it's believe to be the last time mr. bush was seen in public. he was joined by his secretary james baker and his service dog sully and president bush was casting the vote in last month's
election. and for the people here in the houston area and in south central texas and this part of texas, the bush family was a staple. they would see him at astros game. they would see him at houston texans games. he'd go an hour and a half away to college a&m for a football game. a lot of people who went to bed last night are waking up to some very sad news. anthony. >> omar villafranca in houston, thanks so much. usa today washington bureau chief susan page covered george h.w. bush since 1980, the presidential campaign. she's also working on a biography of barbara bush and she joins us this morning. good morning. >> it's great to be with you. >> you can can't help but look at that extraordinary life that the late president had, i mean, first of all, his resume politically was -- it was almost unparalleled. even his marriage was epic, wasn't it? >> it's true. it's a remarkable american story
from his enlisting to go in harm's way during world war ii on his 18th birthday when his dad took him to new york to enlist, to meeting barbara bush at a high school christmas dance and then marrying. they never really -- she used to say that it was -- she married the first guy she ever kissed, had when she said would make her grandchildren want to be throw up. but they did have the remarkable union. and in the end, so sweet and sad, isn't it, that mrs. bush would die in april and that he would follow here at the end of the november. >> susan, he was called the most consequential president, one-term president. what made him so effective in just four years? >> you know, i think that with the benefit of a little bit of hindsight with george h.w. bush's presidency, he looks bigger than did at the time he
left office. he looks more successful, more consequential because of the skill with which he handled the end of the cold war. you know, that was a are stretch chur ru -- treacherous time. it was almost as if he was meant to be there at the end of the cold war because of his experience and ability to do diplomacy with such great skill. and then repelling the iraqi invasion of kuwait, also a big part of his legacy. also his civility resounds in an important way now. we remember how civil things were. it wasn't of golden age of bipartisanship, but compared to today, it looks like there's some lessons to be learned. >> there's no doubt about it. and there's so many things with his foreign policy that are looked that. that one term, but also domestically things that people forget about, the clean air act and working on the american with disabilities act and asking that lasting impact as well.
>> and another thing, he was a ground breaker when it came to aides. i think it's easy to forget the stigma attached to hiv aids at the time he took office. and this was something that barbara bush also urged him to do. i think in retrospect that also is part of his legacy. so there were some things that involved serving others that really are threads through his public service. >> and through his family as well. >> susan, we mentioned that you're working on the biography of barbara bush and you interviewed the president for that in november of last year. and, i mean, what did you take away from that conversation? >> you know, i did interview george bush many times over the years. he was the first national politician i ever interviewed in 1980 during the first presidential campaign i ever covered. and then to see him again 37 years later toward the end of his life, when i interviewed him last november almost exactly a year ago he was struggling with the effects of the former park
kinson's disea -- parkinson's disease that he had. but what we were talking about in that final interview was his wife and about what had attracted him to her and what -- why their marriage lasted so long. and what role she had played had his success. and i said, do you remember when you saw her for the first time at that christmas dance in connecticut so connecticut? and i said what do you remember? and he said she was so beautiful. >> that's so sweet. >> that's the front row seat to the amazing love story. >> it's so true. an extraordinary life. and also a very humble man in so many ways for all that he did and did for this country. we will have much more on the death of george herbert walker bush, the 41st president of the united states in our next hour. bob will join us to talk about his memories of the 41st president and you can always

>> reporter: he was in one of the building's elevators at the time of the quake. >> first i thought it was the elevator are you ben this really got going and i thought, well, this feels like the big one. this feels liking some that could really do some damage. >> reporter: later he surveyed the damage from above with the alaska national guard. walker told us it brought back memories of the state's devastating 9.2 magnitude earthquake in 1964. >> the sheer strength of an earthquake that you can crumble a perfectly good highway, buckle a bridge, it was amazing behind the power of what we saw is. >> reporter: this is earthquake country out here and governor walker believes that strict building codes saved lives. but there is a lot of infrastructure damage. hundreds of gas leaks are posing a new danger and of course there's all this road work that has to be done. the governor says it could take weeks to recover. for "cbs this morning: saturday," carter evans, anchorage. president trump is expected

the day that everything changed for me was hearing barbara walters announce on tv that christopher rief passeeves away. the tay that the day that he passed i realized that my superman had disappeared. and then i also realized that i had not done enough to take responsibility for what happened in my life. >> so when you finally looked at yourself in the mirror, you thought i got do what? >> i did not look like myself. my skin looked like it was ten years older than it was. it was very dry. anything and everything that could go wrong with your skin went wrong with my skin because
it stopped sweating because of my injury. >> with help from his father, a medical doctor also trained in homeopathy, he would create his own skincare blend at home. >> and when they started to notice that my skin started to look good, my sister said, well, if it looks good on you, i'm just going to steal a couple of these vials and just use them. and then my mom started to say i'm going to steal a couple of vials as well. so i created this trial of clep toe maniacs of these trials that we were making in the kitchen. but it was something ways doing for myself. >> humble makings for what would become clark's botanicals. it's more than a company. it represents a sense of purpose for francesco. >> after clark's botanicals started, i e-mailed the ceo of the christopher reeves foundation and then i met with every director. i was meeting with them because

and spokesperson for the american academy of pediatrics. despite how difficult it may be to ignore a baby's cries while trying to change their sleep patterns. >> let's take this off you. >> she says doing so won't hurt them. >> limited periods of letting a baby cry for several minutes every night for about a week are not known to cause long lasting harm to the baby's emotional and mental development. >> she says good sleep habits should begin early. >> if a parent can expose their baby to a lot of natural daylight and regular noise throughout the day, that can be helpful to have the baby set their internal clock. and then starting about 7:00 at night make it dark and quiet for your babies. >> if a baby is having trouble sleeping, she recommends parents wait until babies are 4 to 6 months old to start a sleep training program with the blessing of a pediatrician. around 3,500 infants diane wally from sleep-related deaths,
including sudden infant death syndrome. to reduce that risk, the aap recommends babies sleep on their backs in a bare basinet or crib and that parents share a room with the baby for a whole year. >> the idea says that you should room share until the age of 1, this is not that? >> no. if you've got, you know, the room is right next to your room and you've got your baby on a monitor, you can see and hear your baby just as much as if your baby was in the room. >> the advice may seem simple, but the kind of personalize the coaching mommy wise provides is an investment with a price tag of up to $7,500 in big cities like new york. >> if somebody's wondering is it worth the cost, what would you say to them? >> i know that it is because our clients tell us every day that it was money well spent. i know we've saved marriage dollars. i've seen mothers who literally couldn't cope at all. so i know that it's a struggle for a lot of parents and i wish
that i could help everyone. >> the way she helped this couple, who knees days havethes much easier go at bedtime. >> if this is something that is within your means, then i hoo i will -- highly recommend it and there are different price points for everybody. there should be no stigma attached with seeking out help. >> why do you think there's a stigma associated with the idea that you need somebody to help you with your child sfl peop? >> people see the bound of motherhood as this kind of secret community and that inviting outside help is some sort of indication of a lack of ability. >> but it's the support and then the confidence that somebody else can give you. >> absolutely. >> because they're looking that the differently. >> yeah. and that's i guess sometimes all it takes is a different perspective. >> and we don't have that different perspective. we don't have families living as close so your mom might not be there. and she said you're so sleep
deprived you need somebody else who has a fresh mind. >> you can't think. my son did not sleep through the night until he was 2, he's now in college. but i remember the pain. >> and i should say, you know, that price point is very high. remember that's a big city. prices range the services range, so it is something that people can look into for the help. >> yes. >> okay, margot slept through the night. >> thank you, margot. remembering a master even colleagues were amazed by what ricky j. could do with a deck of cards. coming up, later we'll look back at this unique figure in the world of odd ball entertainment. >> and if you're heading out the door, don't forget to set your dvr to record "cbs this morning: saturday." coming up in our next hour, he's surely the biggest star on broadway. we'll go behind the scenes of king kong, the spectacular new take on the classic story. plus, "the dish" and music from paul in our music session.

high . president george h.w. bush is being remembered this morning as a man of the highest integrity. just ahead, bob schieffer will join us and share his memories. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." there are many surprises in this movie for me but first starting with you, i did not know this was the first james baldwin book that had ever been turned into a movie. and you did that. >> it's a shock to me. >> it's a shock to you too? >> yeah, i was surprised to hear as it well. but i think part of that is just there are many black authors who haven't been adapted that should be -- >> but it's james baldwin though, barry. >> but richard wright i think has only been adapted once, just so many of these literary titans that haven't been adapt. when i first adapt this book i didn't have the rights to it. i said i'm going to adapt a james baldwin novel and then realized oh, i need the rights. so that's when i engaged with
the james bad within estate. >> it's ultimately a love story but it's also about false imprison meant. it's set in the '70s but could so happen today. tell us about that. >> i think that's the power of james baldwin. so much about this book you could take it and set it in 2018 which has a filmmaker would be easy for me. i could point my camera in any direction and not have to clear a street or sign. but to me the power that he was writing about is that he was telling the truth was how these problems persisted. so to allow the book and the film to remain set in the 1970s, to me it just spoke to the idea that the family in this film could be any family today. >> how do you address thash goi -- that issue of going after the justice system while telling a love story. >> it's relying on the voice of james baldwin. what i loved about this book in particular, it has this one voice of james baldwin which is lush, sensual and romantic, but also at the same time just as lush about speaking truth to
welcome to "cbs this morning: saturday." i'm anthony mason along with michelle miller and dana jacobson. and coming up this hour, remembering the 41st president of the united states. george h.w. bush died last ni t night. in just a moment we'll talk with bob schieffer who will share his memories of mr. bush. plus, it's almost a half a century since man first walked on the moon. this week, nasa announced an ambitious plan to go back with the help of private companies. and this time we may be there to stay. a different kind of incredible technology on broadway. later we'll take you behind the scenes at a new york theater
where king kong is being brought to life in an eye-popping new show. that is all ahead. but first, more on the death of george h.w. bush, the 41st president died at his houston home last night at the age of 94 after serving as ronald reagan's vice president. mr. bush was elected to the white house serving from 1989 to 1993. >> he was defeated by bill clinton but his son george w. bush served two terms in the white house. former president clinton wrote that he gives mr. bush, quote, thanks for his great long life of service, love, and friendship. >> this morning the american flag is flying at half staff over the white house. but president trump and first lady melania trump are mourning george h.w. bush from abroad. they are at the g-20 summit. in a tweet this morning the president praised bush writing george h.w. bush led a long, successful, and beautiful life. whenever i was with him i saw his absolute joy for life and true pride in his family.
his accomplishments were great from beginning to end. he was a truly wonderful man and will be missed by all. >> from world war ii hero to texas congressman, u.n. embassy, cia director, vice president and then president, george h.w. bush has left a lasting legacy on this country. and when asked about that six years ago he said he banned the "l" word adding i think history will point out the things did i wrong and perhaps some of the things did i right. here to discuss all those things from our washington bureau is cbs's bob schieffer. bob, good morning. >> good morning. >> it really was a heck of a life, wasn't it? >> well, it was. you know, i covered him in the 1980 campaign when he ran unsuccessfully for president and in his '88 campaign when he was elected. and i will never forget the -- the first time i ever interviewed him he actually in 1981 the iowa caucuses and beat reagan and so forth, and he was
on cbs the next morning and i said, so how do you feel? he said i fool like i've got big mo. i said what? he said big mo. big mo. >> i had never heard this term. i said i'm sorry i don't know what you mean. he said mo, mo, momentum, i've got to get momentum. >> i said, oh. >> it's the sport side of him there, without a doubt. >> exactly. >> has anyone ever been more qualified to be president than president bush was? >> you know, that's a very good -- that's a very good question. because he was very well qualified. he had been an elected politician, he'd been chairman of the national public committee. later own was head of the cia. he was our first envoy to china after we recognized china. he really was especially on foreign policy prepared. but the interesting thing about him, even though he was a war hero, you know, he was the
youngest pilot shot down in a fighter plane in world war ii, he truly -- he was an entrepreneur. he had this great, you know, ability to go to texas and start up his own company. and yet, he was so nice. he was so proper that some people mistook that for weakness. and news week in the '88 campaign actually ran a cover with his picture on the front that said, the wimp factor. >> i remember that. >> he was anything but a wimp. and yet his people said we've got to change this image. that year he'd lost in iowa. they redid the campaign, they went to new hampshire, and the way they decided to make him be more manly as it were, he abandoned the coat and tie, started wearing trucker tractor hats and wind breakers and things like that and drove every piece of heavy machinery that he could find in new hampshire.
i mean, at one point somebody said to me, hide the forklift, mama, george bush is coming. he would -- he would drive tractors, he would drive snowplows. once he drove this 18-wheeler truck. he only drove it around the parking lot and the secret service was hanging off the side, but he was driving around out there tooting the horn, honk, honk it would go. and the thing is, american politics being what it is, he won. >> oh, wow. >> he beat bob dole and went on to get the nomination. but he was truly one of the kindest people that i ever knew. he probably had more friends than any president i ever knew. and he -- you know, he never -- he didn't write his own biography. he was so shy about -- about being in public life, but he never lost the opportunity to write people to thank them. and there must be a million out
there somewhere. he was really a nice man. >> bob, think about those two senate race that's lost, and the first bid for president that he lost. defeat never defined george bush, did it? >> no. for just -- just the way we're talking about. but i think you talked to -- you all talked into the beginning was he the most qualified person to ever take the office? i mean, who knows what qualifies someone to be president. but he had all of this experience. and in the end, i think what we'll remember him for is, number one, the invasion of iraq when saddam hussein had invaded kuwait, he drove him out, american forces did. and, he got other countries in that region to pay for it, which was a remarkable thing. but i think even more important than that in history, he was the one who was in office when the
soviet union came apart, which it collapsed. and i think the way he guided american reaction to that, he would not allow bragging and talking about how, you know, we're superior to them and all that. he just kind of played it cool. and i think the tone that he took, other countries, our allies and friends, took the very same tone. and i think it probably got us through a very difficult time that who knows what might have happened if some desperate person in the soviet union, they had all these nuclear weapons had decided to try to overturn this. so i think he gets great credit for that. >> bob, we just have a minute left here, but at the end of the gulf war which you mentioned, of course, president bush's rating was all of most 90 pes yet he lost the next election to bill clinton. how hard was that defeat for him? >> it was very difficult because what it was, he had to break a
campaign promise. he had gone through that campaign with the mantra no new taxes, read my lips, no new taxes. and then the country got into an economic bind and had he to do just that. and they were -- the american people somehow they -- his popularity went down sharply and he lost the election. >> the last great soldier statesman and certainly different era of politics and politician. bob schieffer, thank you for sharing memories. thank you. >> you bet. in jackson, mississippi, martial ramsey has drawn a touching work. it shows george h.w. bush arriving in heaven in the world war ii plane which he was forced to ditch and being reunite with his wife barbara. she died almost eight months ago. it also shows them being
reunited with their daughter robin who died while she was just 3 years old. >> what a lovely cartoon. >> beautiful cartoon. >>ing some -- something he said after being asked the single accomplish meant you're proudest of, he said the fact that our children still come home. >> that's everything. >> that is everything. it's about nine after the hour, now mears a look at the weather for your weekend. fellow magicians had no elusions about ricky j. he was hailed as one of the greatest slieft hand a greatest slight of hand artists

artists. >> if you're attacked by a band of animals or an animal band, fire and keep dancing. dance, you devils, dance. >> long a fixture on late night television, jay began performing in front of audiences as a boy. but his obsession with magic ran far deeper. he was known as a foremost artist on the subject. writing several books on the subject, conman and husband letters throughout the ages. >> club flush. >> that knowledge landed him work as a technical consultant in hollywood. his company built the wheelchair used in forest gump that hid actor gary sa niece's legs. he also found his way into movies and television shows. even law enforcement was interested in his ability to spot a cheat while getting one

and familiar right here in new york city. we went behind the scenes at one of this season's most spectacular shows. good morning. cannot wait for this. >> the head liner of a broadway show is often referred tos at top banana or the 800-pound gorilla. both of those terms apply to one of broadway's newest and biggest stars although in this case it's a 20-foot tall, 2000 pound gorilla. the broadway musical king kong is the latest retelling of a story the world can't seem to get enough of. since the original movie ve version's premier in 1933, king kong has inspired multiple remakes, sequels, related projects, and guest appearances in the films of other famous movie monsters.
the 2017 quasi reboot spawned a see kwefl its own in 2020. >> i think every generation gets the bond they deserve. the and every generation against the king kong they deserve. >> this is a lifelong fan of the original king kong tale in all its various telglings. >> i think you can identify with it if you felt you didn't belong anywhere. that's the allure of king kong is that he is the great giant outsider who's come to this major town and causes a sensation. he's not just an animal, he is kind of become somebody that you can look at, you know, and have some empathy for. >> and we see our own personal growth in him? >> right. i could say there was a new york love story. >> that point isn't lost on kong's current broadway leading
lady. >> when i first saw him i cried a little bit because i couldn't believe that was my scene partner. and my co-star. and it took me about 15 minutes of silence, of just sort of walking around his body and to just really let it sit in that i'm going to be forming a relationship with him for the next year of my life. and it was overwhelming, because he is so magnificent. i mean, it's technology and creativity at its finest. >> like the creature himself there are kong was born across the sea before making his way to new york city. the puppet sis a marvel of towig and stage craft. it contains 16 micro processors that give kong life-like motion. and emotions. his chest and abs are conconstructed of air bag-like materials and his limbs are made of high pressure, inflatable tooups tubes.
it takes 13 talented performers, ten on stage and three creating the facial movements, expressions and voice. from a glass booth at the back of the theater. >> this is a beast that's inspired by legend and forward thinking technology. >> the director and coreygrapher uses a -- >> you can feel almost mournful kind of sigh from him. he reaches out. >> i will tell you standing here watching that, it's impossible not to be in awe of what is
capable here. >> i think everyone's expecting the scale and kind of epic nature of him but nobody's every really prepared for the emotional capacity of the beast. the thing that punched me square in the soul was when you look into the eyes of the beast and he's got this amazing kind of liquid deputyening in h liquid depth in his eyes, you can see yourself in it. >> that aspect, the eyes, may be the key to the character's connection with audiences. >> those eyes are phenomenal and they're deep. like a human being. they're beyond belief. >> king kong, no matter what version you watch, the wung u one thing you notice about king kong is the eyes, the eyes of the windows to the soul. so you watch him and no matter what he's doing, whether he's destroying things or look at whatever actress, his eyes, he has something behind them. >> while many critics loved the production, even those who wrote mixed reviewed heaped praise on
pitts' performance and kong him zblefl self. >> this sort of technology has never been introduced to a broadway stage. >> it's not only the technology that's making history, but also it's herself. >> what does it mean it you to be the first african-american actress to play this role in this iconic story? >> for a lot of people of color, there's always been the sort of disconnect with the story that some people could pinpoint and some people couldn't. i know myself as a little girl i loved it and there are moments that made me feel really weird and uncomfortable and i couldn't fik out why until i got a bit older. and i noticed some sort of racial undertones that the stories carried. but i think right now women all over the place are sort of gaining this new found power and speaking up against about what t means to make your own decisions and anne is so unique because she knew this in the 1930s. this is a black woman who in 1930 decided to say, i am my own
wom woman and no one can tell me otherwise. >> have you had connection with younger fans, women of color and little girls who have been inspired by what you've done? >> yes. and it makes me a little emotional so i'll try not to tear up. goodness, sorry. it's a beautiful thing to see little girls who look like me who want to do this so bad because i know what that feels like to want to be someone of so much importance but feel like you aren't actually enough to be that. >> and here you are. >> here i am. oh, goodness. >> and we should point out that that wonderful actress is the daughter of one of our former colleagues here at cbs byron pitts. >> he did really well. >> i remember her back in 2003. she was like a little sprite. she had all of this incredible just joy about her and it's so wonderful to see it. >> so king kong can't sing or dance, but it doesn't matter.
>> that's right, doesn't matter. people are talking about different things about the show, it's worth seeing. it's a stpectacle. >> jamie, thank you. be right back after a quick bre break. notre dame stadium, it's 88 years old. what was it like to play in that stadium? >> it was cool it was scary. i'll remember the call the rest of my life when the call starts are you familiar with notre dame stadium? yeah ar yeah, a little bit. i got to tell you the crowd that showed up stole the show. >> it was like 88,000 people. >> they were very sweet. they were so cool because they were battling weather, they were doing all this, but they came sports minded game day they bundled up and they sang their butts off. it was fun. >> you're used to big crowds. we remember over 20 years ago your big concert in central park in new york city. the last estimates were close to
a million people in central park. >> very sweet. >> your music transcends all party lines, all music lines. what do you think makes that happen? >> you know, i don't know but it's fun to look out and see all the colors, all the races, half guys half girls. it's good to see. and it's good to see different beliefs out there. because i'm sorry, man, i know this is not a popular thought but i think it's our differences that it's our strength, you know. i think we need us all. so i can verify that at a garth show, we need every one of them and they're all singing, it's fun. >> what's it feel like when you're walking on to a stage that's that big? does it feel a little bit different or do you think, wow, this is big? >> we talk about notre dame, it's like you said, it's an older stadiums so sow there's on only one way in and one way out. when they introduce you you've got to walk through the people to get to the stage. but 15 minutes later you get to the stage because you're hugging everybody and shaking everybody's hand and by the time you hit that stage you felt like
we're rolling around to a good view of the earth. how far away from earth -- >> 50 years ago this month the crew of apollo 8 became the first humans to orbit the moon. just seven months and three apollo missions later, americans would walk on the lunar is he surface. >> now nasa has announced a plan to return to the moon and establish a permanent presence there, this time by harnessing the power of private enterprise. on thursday they issued a list of nine u.s. companies now eligible toed by on contracts that will enable the effort. here to discuss the project plus
this week's nasa landing on a probe on mars is jeffrey kluger. good morning. >> good morning. let's start with this thursday press conference. what's the battle plan here? >> the battle plan here is to do for pay loads on the lunar surface what we've done for cargo delivery to low earth orbit, which is to outsource it to private companies. in this case we will be taking smaller pay loads, 1100 to 2,200 pounds to the lunar surface, allowing private companies do it with the hope that this will lead to larger ships and eventually to ones capable of carrying humans. it's worked more or less in the lower earth orbit protocol. >> what's the less? >> well, the less is that we're three years behind getting astronauts there and boeing and space "x" are promising we're going to try to do it by 2019. so the success has been uneven. but this could work. >> keeping that in mind, is it a good idea to share this? >> well, it's a good idea to share it for a koucouple of reasons.
if it is monetizable, and that's a big if, the private sector brings enormous energy and enormous innovation you saw it with computers, commercial aviation. if it's not monetizable, then it's left to nasa to continue doing this and nasa is a decidedly not for profit enterprise. >> you touched upon the reality of it based on other things that have happened previously. but how have our interests in the moon changed? >> our interests in the moon have changed in that we're looking for ways to commercialize it. we're looking for ways to monetize it. in the past when we went to the moon, i always say this, we went to the moon for reasons that cannot speak their name because we didn't go for money. we didn't go for industry. we went because it's just one of those great transcend -- >> the next frontier. >> that we do. and i think that will always endure. because that's deeply in the software. >> they think we can kaye chiac
this again in ten years. >> here's where i think i was more optimistic. >> that's a big sigh. >> that's a big sigh. nasa we're always going back to the moon, we're always going back to mars, we just never get there. i apply the rule when i read a press release, count the conditionals, the more times they say it would, should happen the less likely it is going to happen have some money was a question back in the day. >> that's right. >> clearly is right now, i know the survey having a big part informant training of some of these astronauts. what's the science that will come out of this do you think? >> well, the science that will come out of it, first of all, there are minerals that could be used. there are resources on the moon that could be used. but the more we learn about the moon, the more we learn about the formation of all bodies in all solar systems, terrestrial planets, gas planets, moon, moon lites, it can provide us a place to test our techniques for
homeste homesteadying worlds on a long term base. if we're testing on the moon, your three months away, if you're testing on mars, you're eight months away. >> jeffrey, thank you for the incite sight wh insight when it comes to the moon. now here's a look at your weather for the weekend. a best selling cookbook, a netflix series and a james beard award, and that's what this chef has accomplished in just the last year or so. meet her on the dish next. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday."

dining in berke lay's legendary restaurant. alex waters called her america's next great cooking teacher. >> that's impressive. and that seems to be coming true. last year her first cookbook salt, fat, acid, heat became a best sell, he won a james beard award and inspired a netflix series by the same name. in the series the salt segment was filmed in japan. here's a clip. >> it tastes very minerally, like i can taste rocks almost. do you want some? no. [ laughter ] >> samin, welcome to "the dish." >> thank you so much for having me. >> tell us what's on this great table? >> so i'll start with butter milk marinated chicken which is just so beautiful and gets sto so golden brown in the say classic persian rice called
tabby, gets the crispy rice from the bottom of the pan. this is a butter brussel sprouts like a sweet and sour spicy thing. that's a beautiful salad that i love to make in the fall with par simons and chickerees, nice asid tic and bright. and this is midnight chocolate cake. >> and this. >> this is the caruso after my friend. her classic drink. >> thank you, greta, it's delicious. >> it's great fruit juice and lots of lime. >> cheers. >> congratulations on your james beard award, thank you for being here. >> salt, fat, acid heat, you've called these the holy grail of elements. explain what that means? >> i sort of realized that everything around the world, all good cooking is united by these four basic elements. and if we can learn how to use them and how to balance them, when to add them and in what
form, we can make anything taste good. >> that simple. >> i'm sorry, i'm talking with my mouthful. >> i love it. >> that's a good sign. >> that is what we love to see. >> so you were attracted to this restaurant in college. how do you go from the front to the back? >> i didn't know anything. you know, i grew up eating great home cooking and so i didn't really know anything about fancy restaurants. but my college boyfriend always wanted to eat there. so we saved up $220 over the course of seven months. >> that's insane. >> wow. >> and we went to have dinner there. that really changed my life to eat in this beautiful restaurant, to be so taken care of. >> you call it a tempt of sense sorry delight. >> it is a temple of sensory delight. i just was so moved that i wrote a letter to the owner and asked her for a job busing tables. and then within a few weeks i was so enchanted by the temple of sensory delights that i begged them to teach me how to cook. >> this is interesting to me. you said that you became a
writer and a chef because you felt like an outsider. >> absolutely. i have always felt, you know, i grew up in san diego, ways definitely different coming from an eye riranian family with a different name. all of my differences have brought me into a career where i really just want to include people. and by telling stories and both food and words are ways for me do that and bring people in. >> in the netflix show and having watched parts of some of that, that's exactly what you do. but why do a show like this versus i mean a cookbook seems like okay, i get it, but why do a show like this? >> i felt so lucky to have the opportunity do the show. and there's kind of a beautiful analogy between the idea that these four elements appear in cuisines all around the world and show us that good food everywhere is more similar than it is different. and i think the same thing is true for humans. you know, we are more similar than we are different. so getting to meet people and share their stories and show
that is all i ever really want to do. >> i love that. we'll have you sign "the dish." >> thank you so much. >> as we do. if you could have this deal with anyone past or present, who would it be? >> i would have to say michelle obama, my hero. >> we got to make that one happen. >> yeah. >> i don't know if we can. >> she's watching. >> she's watching. >> that's right. thank you so much. >> thank you so much for having me. >> and for "the dish," you can head to our website at cbsthismorning.com. coming up, they've opened for the chain smokers but now the group tall hights has earned top billing about to complete their first headlining tour and we'll hear about their second album coming up on "cbs this morning: saturday." with the roomba robot vacuum. only roomba uses 2 multi-surface rubber brushes to clean all your floors. and with patented dirt detect technology,

tell your doctor about all your medical conditions including immune system problems, or if you've had an organ transplant or lung, breathing, or liver problems.
