office has identified the body. there less suspicion it could be colleen waterman because the two came together. because the car was found off devil's slide, there was a search for one or both of the waterman's. they're officially conducting a search for billy waterman. it wasn't just that they thought he met his end there or an unfortunate accident, but they believe he may be on the run. the general consensus among the police is that he's missing or run away. remember, he is a person of interest. both were reported missing on monday. a family member went to do a welfare check on the watermans and found they weren't there, reported missing. yesterday, of course of course the body was found in the room at the hotel. a half hour before that, the car
was on devil's slide. so they believe billy waterman may be the peninsula. there's a person of interest, and that is billy waterman. >> thank you. we've got breaking news. egyptian radio -- television -- first, let's look at the pictures. they're dancing in the streets. word has come from egypt's vice-president that hosni mubarak has stepped down. according to the associated press, he's handing over power to the military. this is happening as we speak. you see people cans -- dancing in cairo, egypt. you see the cheering and
applauding and exuberance. egyptian president hosni mubarak has stepped down and turned over power to the military. we're looking live at it. this is history in the making in egypt, and it will have an impact around the world, but, again, if we cop just stop for just a second and listen in and look, this is egypt. now the implications around the united states and around the world preplain to be -- remain to be seen. >> we know that hosni mubarak flew to the town of sharm el-sheikh yesterday. it's just after 6 p.m. there. mr. mubarak has a palace in the sharm el-sheikh resort. so it's not unprecedented for him to go. there were some indications that he may be stepping away even more after he said he was
handing some power over to the vice-president. we have just gotten it confirmed that hosni mubarak has stepped down. he has handed over power to the military. this is what the protesters have been demanding. they want a true democracy in place. it is still a volatile situation, one that's fragile. we'll be having a live report from cairo, hopefully in about 10 minutes and our reporter in washington, d.c. is following the obama administration's reaction to all of this. the obama administration was expressing some frustrations and con fiewrks actually, about what the situation is. >> he announced he was leaving last night. he did not. the pressure has been relentless. these demonstrators, they have not let up at all, and they sad that his -- said that his statement last night was not enough. they marched on to the
presidential palace. the only thing they would accept would be that president mubarak would leave. now, apparently, he's done that. >> these protests were getting bigger as the days and weeks went on, not smaller. the spew ease canal -- suez canal plays a major role in letting oil come through. so that's been cause lag lot of concern -- causing a lot of concern. >> mubarak said he's handing over power to the military. we know there are many other sources with influence in africa, in the middle east. we don't know who will totally filth vacuum and what will be the future of egypt, but what we see at this very second as you're watching these pictures from cairo, egypt after president mubarak said he was stepping down.
>> it appeared at first that president mubarak was a little tone deaf and operating business as usual, but the crowds didn't give up. they remain for the most part very peaceful. protesters had serious clashes. these protests did -- i believe there were 200 deaths and numerous injuries. for the most part they camped out. there were families, people from paul walks of life, lawyers, doctors. that was the straw that broke the camel's back, forcing the mubarak regime to step down and change. >> we'll have time to look at the dome palestinian -- domino effect whether there will be retaliation. >> right now the stock market is up 38. this situation in egypt has certainly had an affect on wall
street. >> a lot of people with family there in the bay area are obviously watching it. >> it will be interesting to see we this returns to calm and when tourism will return. i was there 26 years ago. it's a beautiful country to visit but something americans fled very quickly three weeks ago when it started. u.s. government workers and government workers from other countries fled to get away. >> egypt is also a nuclear power as well. noever is filling that vacuum, there's a lot of questions, very, very interesting, and we see this live here on ktvu. >> we've just gotten word that the google executive, the one who was captured for 12 days, he's the one who apparently started this revolution from
social networking sites. he has issued a statement congratulating the people saying mission accomplished, basically, that this is what they were trying to do, what they were hoping to do. it's fascinating looking at the crowds waving the egyptian flag. euphoria for them. >> the next few hours, few moments, weeks, will be very, very interesting as egypt is at the epicenter of a lot of attention around the world. >> right now we want to head back to sal castaneda and get a check on the traffic. you're following the situation with muni. that's right. just to let you know, we'll be going back to the coverage, just give you a little traffic and weather. if you're trying to get to your job downtown, if you're taking the outbound train, there's a derailment. all the trains are stacked up
outside the embarcadero at the castro. trains are delayed inbound. they're not moving outbound. also, this morning we're locking at traffic at the toll plaza. it's light no problems there. this morning we're doing okay in oakland with slowing in the coliseum. let's go to steve. everything is good today and tomorrow. cold this morning, a lot of 30s. we'll end up with 60s near 70s. a few high clouds, but that's associated with a system that will stay to the north but the changes are brewing. 30s for many, 40s. it was a cold morning. the north wind at napa, fairfield. it's not strong. the mere fact that it's there means temperatures come up. the change in our weather is right up there. it will dig in and do this. i think sunday we get coastal
fog back but it's been a quiet six weeks basically, only a couple days of rain, but the weekend, friday, saturday, most of sunday will be fine. clouds return monday and then much colder temperatures by tuesday. cold in the morning, sunny and slightly warmer. temperatures coming up just a couple degrees each day. the lows are so cold. 60 to 68. 65 antioch. 64 brentwood. not much change interest livermore to loss gatos. if you're heading down to the golf it's gorgeous. rain on tuesday. >> thank you, steve. 8:14. >> we're continuing to follow the developing situation in egypt. hosni mubarak is stepping down. we have some reaction there.
have you gotten word from people? >> reporter: not yet. we're waiting to hear from the white house obviously. their message and statement will be very porchlt moments before we heard the official message from the vice-president omar suleiman that hosni mubarak will step down. president obama said it was a first good sterntion the fact that -- step, the fact that mubarak was leaving cairo and is now in sharm el-sheikh. that's where the egyptian president went to earlier today. we heard that message just moments ago delivered by the vice-president. you can see the images in the streets of cairo right now, dancing, jubilation, protesters. tens of thousands have been protesting for more than 17 days calling for the immediate
resignation of mubarak. today they have made history, have made their message known and have won, a big victory for the protesters ending a 30-year rule from mubarak. we will be awaiting reaction from the white house. we do have knish response from the -- initial response from the military. admiral mullen talked with egyptian military leaders before this formal announcement was made. administration officials believed the military with have to assume control to keep order in that country. they did not believe that the protesters had any faith in the vice-president of egypt. so clearly they want a smooth transition of power. we will see what shape and form that will take in the days and weeks to come. again, history made after 17 or more days of protests. now president hosni mubarak has
stepped down. >> the white house has had to do a rather delicate diplomacy, if you will, during this whole situation. what would be the pie deal -- ideal outcome now that president mubarak has stepped down? >> reporter: the white house has always said egypt has always been a close alley and maintained a close relationship. the white house did not want to tread on that relationship too hard. you never saw president obama call for the resignation of president mubarak. but the president said he supports the people of egypt. he support has free and clear democracy and a free and clear election. that's what you've heard from the white house in these days of unrecommends. however, the white house and the president never went so far to call for his resignation.
now the whole scene is different. hopefully later today he does not have a public schedule. there will lab white house press briefing as they hold daily. we'll see what the relax will be from the white house but clearly a very important relationship to keep between the u.s. and egypt. >> before you go, what are we hearing about the fears in washington as to the vacuum that will be left now that mubarak is stepping aside? what do they fear the most? >> that's a tricky question. we'll see how the elections shape up in september and who will control the country. so far, preliminary reaction is they do feel safe, secure and comfortable that the military does have an authoritative role right there right now. they believe the protesters would be upset if the vice-president omar suleiman was
in charge completely. they need to have confidence that the egyptian people will honor and respect the authority that takes over. they just want to have a smooth transition here. so keep in mind the elections will be taking place in september and the white house is hoping that the elections will be freehand clear -- free and clear and a free democracy and the will of the people will be spoken. >> sandra, i think you did follow this. this whole protest really started with social networking, social websites including a google executive who encouraged people to come out and take a stand. i'm curious whether you think this might have an impact in the development of the egyptian government. >> absolutely, politicians, grass root leaders. opposition leaders know this is an entirely different generation. this is a young people's revolution. they know this is an organized
group of young people, a generation that is not afraid to speak out, to stand up, clearly and you've seen this for days, chanting in the streets, carrying flags, giving up their livelihoods for a better future you've heard this time and time again, just camping out, staying there in the courtyards, in the streets, in the square, just making sure their message would be heard. they're organized through social media. for a while the government shut that down trying to make sure the message wasn't getting out but they overcame. that authorities know this is a completely different generation and one that wants to be heard. >> live from washington, d.c. thank you so much more keeping us updated on the situation there. i just want to read a little bit of the statement that vice-president omar suleiman announced in a statement on
state television. it says mr. mubarak has decided to relinquish the offer of the presidency and selected the supreme council to take over the affairs of the country. what's interesting is why mubarak did not say this last night instead of waiting today. maybe this was a trial to see if it would apiece the protesters and it did -- appease the protesters, and it did not. >> as we look at the pictures, on the phone we have someone from egypt right now. lamese, can you hear me? >> yes. >> what does it feel like? >> i have never been prouder to be an egyptian. i feel like we were have achieved the greatest dream. we have reached lengths no one
imagined. all of this from young people, my generation who everybody underestimated. we finally did it. >> were you part of the demonstrations in the last two, three weeks? >> i did attend the demonstration. i'm a doctor. i work at the largest publicly funded hospital in egypt. so i was very bis sit first two -- busy the first two weeks, treating a lot of the protesters who got injured. >> this is like a tsunami. >> it is. >> income the mid-drel of this, when did you know or did you ever feel like this can't be stopped. >> i'm an ophthalmologist, an eye doctor, a patient was discharged and going back to the square. that's when i knew we couldn't be stopped.
>> we're looking at live pictures right now. >> of course i'm going to celebrate with the people right now. >> how are you going to celebrate? >> i don't know. i want to be with the masses. i went to hear their cheers. i want to see their happiness. i want to see the people who spent the nights there. i want to see them elated. >> are you worried at all about the future of egypt at this point? there's still so much uncertainty. >> of course, but i'm not worried. i don't think we should be judging in the next year, two or three. we should judge within 10 years. we overcame a dictator. we can do anything. >> what do you think should happen to president mubarak? >> i think he should be tried. he's a very corrupt man. justice has been -- for the people, for the victims of these demonstrations. their rights have to be ensured.
>> and he was in power for 30 years. why do you think it took so long for people to stand up to him is? >> i really don't know. i think the instigating incident was the last elections of the parliament that were so blatantly corrupt that people were appalled, that they couldn't hold back any longer, and that conditions for the middle and lower class became so atrocious that they couldn't stand it. it was the final brink. >> thank you. >> thank you for having me with you. >> it's been wonderful to hear your voice and excitement. we want to go again live to cairo. weave have leland live there in cairo. can you describe what you're
seeing and experiencing there? >> reporter: this is a celebration unlike anything i've ever seefnlt the last -- seen. the last time we've seen something like this is when the berlin wall went down. people are cheering in the streets, absolutely incredible here in cairo. >> and this, i assume started 25 minutes ago. how did the word spread that the president stepped down? >> reporter: it came out. there was an incredible roar that went out. 30 years of president mubarak and now the military is back in charge. back to you. >> we're looking at these pictures. thank you for taking the time to talk with us live from cairo,
egypt. every street there appears to be pill passible. the crowds are clearing. the flags are waving in the area. the enormous shouts. >> we have a new statement from the leading egyptian advocate, mohamed el baradei who said this is the greatest day of my life. he says he expect has beautiful transition of power, but that really is the question mark whether there can be a smooth transition of powshz -- power. >> we're also getting word that president obama will make a statement coming up at 10:30. it will be very, very important and keeping in mind that this will have a ripple effect from iran, syria, israel, all of the surrounding countries in that area, plus the economic
partnerships and military allies. this is history. this is an incredible time. >> it does have an impact on all of us, even with our pocket books. wheat prices could be impacted. again, we want to show you -- draw your attention to what you're looking at on your screen. looks like people standing on top of a bus waving their flag. what's interesting, there's a lot of celebration. there doesn't seem to be any kind of violence, any kind of vandalism going on. tens of thousands of people on the streets. >> we heard the comments vive the -- of the doctor. we can see in the pictures, but she said i want to celebrate and be out there in the midst of it. i'm looking at these live pictures of egypt wondering how this will impact other countries
tarp looking to overthrow government, whether they'll feel empowshzed -- empowered. >> this all -- started about 18 days ago with social networking. they made some connections and said we don't want to take this anymore the protests kept growing and growing. president mubarak said they weren't going to change. even a few days ago said that the protests had to end or there would be a crackdown. there was this big change yesterday where the military officials said all their demands will be met. after waiting for six hours, president mubarak made a statement where at first he said he's not going to step down. then he will hand over some of his powers. he has left the capital of
cairo. he's at his palace in the sinai pen then sue a. >> we're repeating as we watch the people standing on top of this vehicle and also waving flags. we know that president obama will be making a statement at 10:30. president obama has -- president mubarak has stepped down. that will be interesting. and where he will go next. we heard the doctors saying the egyptian people still believe he should be tried for crimes they believe he committed. that's another big question. >> there are concerns that he amassed billions of dollars
during his 33-year -- 30-year reign while the average pay for an average egyptian is $2 a day. there's a big separation, if you will, between the haves and have nots, donkeys next to mercedes. >> part of what fueled it is the average living conditions of egypt. many of them live on $2 a day. with the military in charge, it will be interesting to see if that will change, if that will improve things. who knows. we're only speculating, but that situation fueled all of this, so will that change under a military regime. that's what we have to see. >> and whether this spreads. we have a statement. one of the chants, the people ousted the president. so when people see this kind of
impact that the protests had, whether this will continue to spread. it initially started with an uprising in tunisia. >> we've seen this happen in greece, all of that. >> live pictures from cairo. it is 6:30 p.m. there friday evening and a lot of people milling around. they were jumping for joy. car horns, we heard them. celebratory shots in the air. for the most part not too much violence but a calm atmosphere. >> this will be interesting to see what happens to egyptian television, if there will be an attempt to take over television. that will be interesting to watch. >> again, all the americans who
watched. it will be interesting to see when outsiders will come back into the country. >> i was listening to one of the reporters, we know some foreign journalists were attacked. whether it's safe for foreign journalists to roam around and be out there in the midst of the jubilation, look at the cars. the cars trying to move around in all of this. the streets are filled. the emotions are running high. it will be interesting to see. when you finally get what you want after years of waiting for it to happen, how do you express yourself. >> we have someone else on the phone. we are talking to a stanford student. you're live with us. you're from egypt. can you give us your reaction. >> this is a historic moment. i was just on the phone with my
cousin who was on the streets. it's a huge celebration. everyone is hugging each other. it's a very joyous day and i'm so happy this has finally happened. >> for those who have never lived in egypt, why is this so important? >> well, when you look at a regime that's been in power for 30 years with the same president, when you look at the people, 44% of the people living on or below the poverty line, when you look at the huge amount of income and inequality, it has taken a lot. it's not serving the people, just their own interests. this is a beginning step but hopefully there will be more and a peaceful transition to democracy. >> i assume that's the goal right now but there's a lot that
needs to happen between now and then. do you have any concerns for the stability of your country? >> i'm concerned, yes. we have hope. the people of egypt have shown they have enough strength and courage to take this into their own hands. the fact that the military council is taking over and not vice-president suleiman is very significant. in my opinion, the military government -- council is much bemplet i hope this will be a transitional government that will herald free elections. >> do they feel safe now? >> they feel incredibly safe. they're saying that people are so happy. people are hugging people that they don't know. they're congratulating each other. there's a huge mood slough celebration that's been
unprecedented. looking at the live feed from fumes channels, you can see that. it's difficult to hear my cousin speak on the phone because people are celebrating so much. they're so happy. no one right now is afraid about what's going to happen. they're so hopeful for a better future. >> i assume you go to egypt on a regular basis. paint a picture of the country. what is this like? >> reporter: it's a very, very beautiful country. there's so much pride, national pride of the citizens that have been under the yolk of this regime for so long. despite this, even under the regime, there's been so many accomplishments made in egypt. it's sad to see things ruined like the artifacts, but egypt is
such a resilient country and such a great historically deep country that i believe it can get through this and become a much stronger country than this was before. >> tell me the moment when you heard that he had stepped down. what was going through your mind? >> i was watching the news channel that brought up omar suleiman who less than a few hours after the president, he had gone to sharm el-sheikh and tensions were reising -- rising. i was up all night to see if this would and new a good way or with the army doing what everyone didn't want, turning the protest violent. i heard he was stepping down. minutes later, eruptions. the people sitting there very tense. for the past hour they've been
telling us -- it erupted in clears. i was sitting at my come tirp and screaming and laughing and hugging everyone around me and waking up my poor roommate, running down the hallway screaming that he's stepping down. updated fie my -- updated my facebook, my status. everyone is so speechless and ecstatic that this has finally happened. it's been 18 days and 30 years. >> you're a perfect example of tweeting and facebooking. are a lot of people asking you questions about the situation? >> there's been a lot of awareness on campus. there was a demonstration last week for egypt. a huge group of students showed their solidarity. there are plans to go town to san francisco and tomorrow have
a vigil for those who lost their lives. there's a lot of support in the community for the people in egypt, just through all types of people. not just people in the eastern background but people who hate oppressive regimes. even people like the filipino student union have voiced their support. >> it's fascinating to watch. how would you speculate -- we're all speculating as we continue to watch the pictures in front of us. how would you speculate egypt's neighbors would be reacting. >> i think libya would be happy. i was looking at some data compiled by the economists the other day listing the countries next to erupt. yemen was the top of the list.
libya was the top of the list, with the exception of the richer countries and the gcc. i think this doesn't bode well for the dictatorship for jordan. it's not a happy situation for people getting on planes leaving their country. >> will you be in classes today? you sound a little too excited? >> i think i have to go to class. >> i think it's fare for you. you have to attend all your classes. i assume this topic may come up with some of your classes. >> i hope so. >> we want to thank mara from stanford, originally from egypt to share your comments and feedback. it's nice to here your enthusiasm. appreciate it. we've got two pictures that we're showing you on the left. that looks like tahrir square.
for days, now, you've seen those white canopies in the center, circular motion. you can see some flags being waved, just the euphoria that's being expressed in so many different parts of egypt that president mubarak has stepped down officially, not just handed over power to the vice-president. >> we're getting word that mubarak has stepped down. one say last lady selling bread on the street was crying and came up to hug me saying the youth, the youth. there's another tweet. tunisia's revolution took four weeks, egypt 17 days. who's next and how much time do they have? just a couple tweets we're getting already. we anticipate many more to come. >> also, we've gotten more information that this step by mubarak to step down is boosting stocks around the world as hope grows for a peaceful transition
of power. you can see the dow still up right now. it's just up 13 points and was up a little bit more than that earlier. this is certainly good news, something that's being watched closely for the investors at the moment has this political standoff and uncertainty that was being seen for two and a half weeks is over. one thing investors do like is uncertainty. this is good news for the stock market. >> as we continue to look at these live pictures, we'll take a break. we'll be back and talk a lot or about the breaking news that the president of egypt, hosni mubarak has stepped down and there's celebration in egypt. we'll have much more coming up on the ktvu's mornings on 2.
waving the flags and an incredible situation happening as we speak. president mubarak, now former president mubarak has deep -- bowed to the demands. they have filled the streets. they're all over cairo. we're told the military will take over control of egypt. president obama will be making a statement about all of this about 10:30 our time. >> we'll stay on top of this. we also are continuing to follow rake break from san francisco. -- follow breaking news from san francisco. there are delays as trains have derailed at the castro station. >> reporter: train service has resumed in san francisco. i can show you. there are a couple trains behind me.
these trains were stopped a few minutes ago. i spoke to one of the operators. he told me they could go at any time. i just got off the phone with the spokesperson for muni. he said service has now resumed. the reason why, they're running service over the castro crossover. there was a derailment. there were passengers aboard. no one was hurt but that derailment slowed down the entire system. they can't determine exactly or couldn't determine how exactly, how slow that was going to be. you're taking a look at news chopper 2. it shows you that cass strow -- castro station. it caused a muni delay into san francisco. i want to bring you out live here. these are the trains that were slow along the tracks this morning when we pulled up. again, service has resumed into san francisco. paul pros told me he wasn't sure
how long delays would still remain but there were going to be some delays for commuters this morning, so be patient. reporting live from san francisco, jade hernandez, channel 2 news. i hear we'll toss to sal castaneda. sal, you have monitoring this for the past half hour or so. >> we will stay on top of it. there's likely to be delays. let's go to some of the other traffic areas. 880 northbound. traffic is moving along slowly. also, this morning, we're' looking -- we're looking at the bay bridge. if you're driving on the sowp south barks 237 is looking good. let's go to steve. sal, sunshine today and probably tomorrow as well. i think the coastal fog will be back and rain returns. we have sunshine today, a few high clouds are driesting --
drifting by. a lot of 30s, 40s. it was a cold one. had a few upper 20s. that system, that's not the front. it's the low that's coming out. that's going to finally edge the high out and carve itself out over the west coast next week but not for most of the weekend. cold this morning, sunny, still a little north, northeast breeze. that means warmer as well. low 60s, mid-60s to upper 60s. could be a 70 near santa cruz. then we will ease off. increasing clouds monday and cold on tuesday. as early as today the homeless at a sent city in concord will be forced to move out. ktvu's claudine wong has been out there talking to people in the tent city to find out what they're going to do next. >> reporter: in the past couple of hours we've seen people pack
up their things and move out. even after they're gone there may be a lot left behind. we're on cam trans property. if you're driving up there, that's highway 4 up that slope. if you're driving by, you can't miss this. caltrans cut down a lot of the brush and that made this very obvious. >> it looks bad, especially on the free way. got people honking and everything. >> reporter: so you knew the time was coming. >> yes. >> reporter: cam -- caltran is promise to get people out. they told me they know crews are coming to kick them out. it's in the pan if but a when. >> really, they do it all the
time, kind of used to it. >> reporter: just move your stuff and come back? >> no. i just go someplace else, really. >> reporter: why not a shelter? because of your dogs. a lot of people have dogs? >> only three. >> reporter: only appears about a dozen people are calling it home. it's off of highway 4 near 680. if you're coming off the solano exit, you will definitely see this on the side of the road. looks like several people who live out here have dogs and that keeps them out of the shelter. only one couple was willing to take contact information and they never called. as far as where folks will go, i keep asking where are you going, and the answer is the same, we don't know.
live in concord, claudine wong. >> 10 minutes before 9:00. continuing coverage of this historic event that's unfolding in egypt. we give you live pictures from cairo. president hosni mubarak stepped down. this follows the biggest days of protests when he refused to resign last night. he has handed over power to the military and egyptian erupted in cheers. again, live pictures of people streaming in the streets in cairo where it is 6:50 in the evening, so early. you can see cars, motorcycles, people walking, waving flags, chanting. there's been a lot of car horns being blared, general excitement. some of the people we've spoken to, just cannot believe they are so excited. >> that it timely happened.
and handed over pour to the military, bowing to prodemocracy demonstrations by hundreds of thousands of demonstrators. the resignation of mubarak is being called historic. it was only 18 days ago that protesters first took the streets demanding his resignation. they organized using social meet media -- media websites. there have been reports as many as 300 protesters were killed. we're monitoring the developments in egypt closely. you'll find continuing coverage with the latest updates at ktvu.com. we also want to mention that president obama is going to be making a statement about the situation in egypt.
that will be coming up in about an hour and a half at 10:30 our time and we'll carry it live on ktvu. let's bring you up to date on some of the other top stories. a search for a missing couple from the palm springs area is an investigation in a suspicious death. billy waterman is a person of interest. waterman and his wife colleen were reported missing on monday. muni said this morning's derailment near the castro station has now been fixed. however, delays continue for a lot of san francisco street car riders. that derailment was first reported about an hour ago. safety experts want to know why mistakes by air traffic controllers have doubled in the past year. the faa recorded close to 1900 mistakes last year. the most common error, planes
flying too close to each other. >> that's not good. >> that's not good at all. >> let's check in with sal. obviously, a lot of events going on, but traffic is a concern as well. >> getting up past 66 off-ramp, getting up to the toll plaza, it's only a five-minute wait getting into san francisco. there's san francisco. yesterday was so terrible, i think today we'll welcome that muni service getting back on track after a derailment. they're fixing it. there should be some residual delays. 8:57. let's go to steve. >> we have sunshine. this was cold. we'll end up with 60s near 70. more on the same on saturday. some coastal fog starts to creep back on sunday, increasing clouds on monday.
i know. and next week much, much colder. >> all right. we'll be prepared. as we go we want to take you back to egypt where the big news, the president has resigned officially. the military is taking over. live pictures of all the cars and people walking around. we'll continue our coverage nonstep on our website ktvu.com. also, we'll carry president obama's statement live. he will be making that coming up in about an hour and a half. thanks for watching, everybody.
