7:12 am
transparency, but he would not commit to releasing mueller's report in full at the ends of the investigation. barr said that he and mueller are long-time friends, that he does not believe that mueller is engaged in a witch hunt as the president so often likes to say. but last june, barr did send an unsolicited memo to doj officials slamming the mueller investigation which caused some democrats to openly wonder in this confirmation hearing if he's already biased against the investigation. now, barr would not commit in the hearing to recusing himself in the mueller investigation. he said that's up to him. not ethics officials. >> all right, nancy, thank you so much. another candidate is joining the 2020 democratic presidential race. new york senator kirstjen gillibrand took the first step last night on the "late show" with steven colbert here on cbss as hard as i would fight for my own which is why i believe that

precision through the complex taking their time, firing indiscriminately along the way. desperate office workers fled the scene taking cover wherever they could. some never stood a chance. sporadic gunfire could still be heard an the complex earlier today despite police claims they had everything under control and scores of people were still being escorted to safety in the early hours of the morning. it was thought that at least one gunman remained on the loose. authorities now say all the attackers have been killed. survivors could hardly believe they'd made it out alive and everyone had a nightmarish tale sead a over. ihink and then decided spraying bullets. >> reporter: the al qaeda-linked al shabaab group claimed responsibility for the attack.
7:16 am
the worst since they struck at the heart of the capital in 2013 at the mall which killed at least 67 people. such desperately sad scenes here at the city morgue as family members collapsed in grief after identifying loved ones. the official death toll stands at 14, but looking at the numbers here, that could possibly rise. gail? >> debora patta reporting, thank you. we're learning more about the suspect in the kidnapping of jayme closs and the killing of her parents. jake patterson was moved yesterday from wisconsin's baron republican county jail to the jail in polk county. the man is being held on $5 million bail. jayme u kes is at a church in baron county, wisconsin where a prayer service will be held this morning. good morning to you as new information comes in, we've noticed the mood in this community shift from joy to shock over the horrific details

to solicit input from others? >> you say that smaller meetings tend to be more effective. why? >> as meetings expand in size, dysfunction also expands. there's lots of reasons. when you have lots of people, you have communication issues. but you also have something called social loafing which is the idea that the more people there, that are there, they start to blend into the crowd, and that's where the multitasking really comes in -- >> i like that you propose standing meetings and also that president obama, mark zuckerberg, other people have walking meetings. >> sure. i want people to realize there's a lot of different ways of having meetings. >> and the time of the meetings, too. you said 48 minutes. you said google has no more than ten people in a meing. rule. that if -- if the meeting -- the meeting shouldn't be any bigger than can feed two -- shouldn't have more people than can eat two pizzas is what she's trying to say. >> keep meetings as lean as
8:39 am
possible. something that upsets people as much as having too many meetings and not being invited. therefore, if we don't invite team meetings and do them that favor, we have to keep them in the loop. >> yeah. >> and perhaps provide them with opportunities in the beginning of the meeting to share? input. >> thank you, steven. >> i don't mind not being invited to a meeting. i don't. steven rogelberg, thank you very much. the name of the book that he would like you to buy, "the surprising science of meetings." on sale now wherever you like to buy your books. steven will join our daily planning meeting this morning -- you are? >> i am. >> joining our daily planning meeting this morning. i didn't know that. he'll share takeaways and tips on the "cbs this morning" facebook page. >> not only reports the news, we're also part of the news, as well. >> part of a study. >> yes. i didn't know that. what do awed row hepburn, sammy davis -- audrey hepburn, sammy davis jr., and vaughan meader have in common?
8:40 am
they're all the subject of mo a powerful pacific cold front will push across the area bringing heavy rain, strong wind and a potential for flash flooding. there is a flash flood watch for the entire bay area. we have high wind warning for the hills in the coast and it will all get going this afternoon into tonight with that front moving across the region.
8:41 am
8:42 am
8:43 am
here's my regret -- that i didn't have me a vice president like joe biden. look at those two, going out for burgers.
8:44 am
laughing it up. i need that kind of v.c., the kind that did dumb stuff to make me look smarter. you know? instead i got the one guy that scares me more than my dad. >> good. >> before iconic presidential were personations on "saturday night live" like will ferrell playing president george w. bush, there was impersonator vaughn meader.er on the jack pa show. >> i say raise from 25 to 35 is not out of accord when compared to the current financial deficit on hand. now i answered that once and for all the question about your alliance, caroline. >> he gained fame for impersonating jfk, but the comedian faded from history after the president's death. in his new podcast and upcoming book, "mobituaries," cbs sunday morning correspondent mo rocca looks at extraordinary people like meader whose names you may
8:45 am
not know. mo rocca gives his own mobit. the book is published by simon and shuster, a division of cbs. he labs at celebrities -- he looks at celebrities like audrey hepburn and how her death was overshadowed in 1993. she died on the same day as president clinton's inauguration. good morning. pushed her off the front page. >> yeah. my goodness. >> why have you decided on on, bits? >> i've always -- obits? >> i've always loved obits. there are people i've been fascinated who i thought they didn't get the sendoff they deserved or any sendoff at all. we're doing episodes on audrey hepburn and on neanderthals, there was never an obituary for neanderthal when was they died out 40,000 yea ago. >> some more recently. >> you said the obit is really about your life and not your death. you're taking a look at that. i had never thought of it that way until you said it. >> absolutely. i think a good obituary's about
8:46 am
the life of a person rather than their death. these are people i feel also a personal connection to. >> audrey hepburn you have personal connection -- >> right. in 1992 i was working at macy's behind the fragrance counter. >> really? >> i was, yeah. and audrey hepburn walked right by my counter. and i'm telling you, the floor, just the main floor there, fell silent. i mean, even if there had been cell phones back there, you never would have shoved your hand in front of her face for a selfie. >> what's something that we might not know about audrey ahead burn? >> i wanted to answer why 26 years after her death does she still trend on twitter. her career was only about 14 years long. there were stars that were bigger than she was. but there's something -- she has a hold on us. we go into her personal history, her war years, and we hypot hypothesize that what you see on
8:47 am
camera is really rooted in kind of her childhood and went through. and that's -- there'she s somet punching through. >> the history of the person, of course, but the times in which they live which is rich, as well. >> yeah. exactly. like with sammy davis jr. who, you know, it's -- it's axiomatic that he could do it all, and he could. a brilliant entertainer. the era is gone, too, where the marketplace appreciated somebody who could do it all because of variety shows. >> i like sitcom deaths and disappearances that i never thought about this. number one you say that you loved tv since you were a little boimpt at 9 you memorial -- boy. at 9 you memorized the "tv guide." the neighbor didn't know you existed. you were watching tv all the time. you talk about chuck cunningham from "happy days." he went upstairs and never came down. the girl on "family matters," walked down the aisle in the wedding and disappeared, and no one explained. what happened to these people? >> on hour-long dramas people
8:48 am
get killed off all the time. i was on "law and order criminal sdwrint intent" and blew up in a car. and "game of thrones," 70% of the characters get killed off. that's an actual statistic. in the sitcom universe, people don't die generally. talk to henry winkler about what happened to richie cunningham's older brother, chuck cunningham, who was in the first few seasons of "happy days." >> bouncing a ball. >> he would usually be -- dribbling a basketball or eating a sandwich. and garry marshall was so good at what he did, the creator of "happy days," he decided the fonz was becoming so popular, richie cunningham would go to the fonz for advice on dating. so the fonz became the older brother. and rather than making chuck cunningham's disappearance a plot point, he knew that the audience would suspend disbelief enough to just be okay with him just -- just disappearing. >> he went up to his room -- >> yeah -- >> and never came down?
8:49 am
>> right. >> he's the relative no onetaut h memorizing the "tv guide" apparently. >> you won me over by talking about the two aunt vivs on "fresh prince of bel air." thank you. i was a fan of the original, just saying. >> if anyone remembers the vexing problem of the two darins on "bewitched," an actor disappears -- >> and the "valerie" show, the lead character disappeared. >> they did kill her off. >> she was in a car accident. >> exactly. they killed her off and replaced her character with sam duncan. >> and the "mobituaries" podcast launches tomorrow. the book comes out this fall -- >> wait. hurry up -- >> gayle! >> you have to subscribe. our superstar producer, kate, in her 20s, says tell everyone to subscribe, rate, and review. i don't know what she was talking about, just do it. >> i didn't know you were going to say hat. what's better than having fast, reliable wifi with coverage throughout your home? how about having internet that can help you save on wireless phone service?
