7:05 am
there is water as far as the i eye can can see. this is yesterday in the town of andrew, south carolina, about 100 miles southeast of columbia. rooftops of two story homes are barely visible. that is the local shriners club. this was a home on stilts and now at risk of floating away from its foundation. >> that miss house there. >> we had to take a boat ride to see the devastation. >> have you seen flooding like this before? >> never, never. >> we then met up with the police chief and the state senator. we floated down local highway 41 which is now under 16 feet of water. enough water to trip the train tracks. >> it's devastation. i mean there is no other way to describe it. >> senator says residents shouldn't be fooled by what has been beautiful weather these

7:07 am
they could get at least an inch here. the water is still rising, slowly at this point anthony. but the governor says it could be around for another nine days. >> david, waist deep in water. thank you. >> and now to politics and republicans controlling the house of representatives. paul ryan is under growing pressure to run for speaker even though ryan has firmly stated he doesn't want the job. some republicans say he may be the only one who can bring the fractured party together. >> good morning to everybody. what started out as asking ryan to run quickly turned to begging and now it's become a desperate chase. even ryan's former presidential running mate mitt romney is urging him to go for it. but ryan isn't budging. >> he may be the most popular guy in the republican party
7:08 am
right now and the coolest, refusing to give into the peer pressure. >> nothing's changed. and right now i'm just trying to get home for dinner. >> on friday he looked eager to escape washington where members of the gop are groveling for ryan to run for speaker of the house. >> i did everything except carry his gym bag this morning trying to get him to do it. >> even jason chaffetz, who wants the job himself said he'd prefer ryan. >> if paul ryan gets in, i will support him. i will get out of the race and put everythingky behind paul ryan. >> i think i shocked some of you. >> after majority leader kevin mccarthy pulled out last minute, highlighting the party's deep division. he had faced opposition from the same hard line conservatives who wanted to unseat the current speaker john boehner. >> i think ryan right now has the stature that he could overcome a lot and brings the
7:09 am
sides together. >> as the consensus candidate he's cut budget deals with democrats but still managed to maintain his conservative cred, something mccarthy has struggled with. >> paul is looking at it. but it is his decision. if he decides to do it he'd been amazing speaker. but he's got to decide on his own. >> ryan has said for years he doesn't want to be speaker. the father of three has called it a job for an empty nester. he will have a week long recess to change his mind and if he doesn't there is no clear plan b. >> thank you. with more on all of this and other political matters we're joined by congressional reporter for the national journal. good morning. >> good morning. >> what an odd position. it is like political theater right now. a job you would think everyone wants. now everyone is suddenly saying you do it. no you do it. what's a going on? zb >> it is a very hard job. we watched boehner the last nearly five years struggle.
7:10 am
and everyone is looking at this job thinking it is not the fun glamorous, third heart beat from the white house it used to be. this is a tough slog and takes a special person. and paul ryan, all eyes are on him and he's not interested in taking it. >> if he doesn't respond to the begging what happens? >> i think we start to see more candidates enter the race. right flow we have daniel webster and jason chaffetz is also talking about running. he said i won't run if ryan duets in but i think a lot more candidates get into the race and we'll start to see more of an actual campaign for speaker. >> and it's interesting to hear he talk about young kids. he brought it up saying this should be for an empty nester but this is if new space where you hear a man actually say i have three young kids. >> a colleague of mine wrote a story a year ago about paul ryan.
7:11 am
and he said in a decade you're not going to see me in washington. i want to be able to be there for my kids. he lost his dad when he was young. and i think that is why it's so important for him. >> this is a very important job. and it is not a job for someone who is new on capitol hill. and yet the veterans seem to be just running away from it. >> well, you know, people who have been on the hill for a long time are -- tend to be more establishment type republicans. and i don't know if they are confident that they would have the votes to actually get elected to this job. even kevin mccarthy was saying i may not quite have the votes in my party yet do this. and that is one of the reasons he gave for not sticking it out. >> who are we going to find in the chair when this is over? >> i think paul ryan is saying he's not interested. he's not going to do this. i don't think that people are going to stop asking him. and i think in another week when the dust settles he may be the person who rises. >> but there are obviously
7:12 am
family liabilities in him for this. there are also potentially political liabilities. >> if you are the speaker of the house chances that you don't have a clear record when you are running for the white house or running for the presidency, it is impossible to think that that's possible. >> it could be an indication he wants an even bigger chair later on. >> exactly. >> thank you. >> now to breaking news overnight. at least 30 are dead this morning after the pair of explosions went off at the peace rally in a turkish capital of an caraankara there's been no crim responsibility from the bombing. they are calling it a terrorist attack. to syria where the obama administration has given up on a key part of its strategy for fighting the terror of isis. the u.s. announcing it will no
7:13 am
longer try to train modern syrian rebels to fight the fight. the rebels only want to support the assad dictatorship. the russian involvement in syria is complicating the fiepgt against isis. good morning. >> russia and the u.s. have polar opposite strategies in syria. and communication between the two has been pretty much scarce. russia agreed to resume air safety talks with the u.s. as early as this weekend but the talks are not about coordinating efforts, instead how to stay out of each other's way. >> as u.s. and russian forces wage separate bombing campaigns over syria there is increasing concern of an accidental confrontation. u.s. jets had to maneuver around the russian aircraft earlier this week. this weekend air safety talks are expected to address how much distance there should be between american and russian aircraft. and which language and radio
7:14 am
frequencies should be used for communications. the talks are not expected to address the targets each country seeks out. and the conflicting goals of the separate missions. the u.s. says moscow's true motive in syria is to prop up the assad regime by targeting its opponenting, including so called moderate rebels who are backed by america and key to containing isis. u.s. officials say russia's strategy will help isis grow in power. >> it absolutely has the effect of growing isil and growing extremism and that is the reason why i have consistently said that their strategy is illogical and self defeating. >> reporter: u.s. defense secretary ash carter addressed the conflict friday after meeting with the british secretary. >> instead russia could use its significant influence in syria to bring about the political transition from assad that we all know is the real solution.
7:15 am
>> reporter: russia maintains they are fighting all terrorists, including isis but there are early signs their air campaign could further destabilize the region. since russia first began their bamming campaign last week. states have apparently upped their involvement as the countermeasure. saudi arabia allegedly arming andy assad rebels with high powered antitank missiles. >> the weekend's safety talks don't guarantee a resolution. they had similar talks last week but failed to find an immediate compromise. and despite russia's claim they have targeted isis, the terror group is reportedly gaining grournd around o lep poe. >> investigations are under way in arizona and texas for two deadly shootings on or near college cam college campuses. a fight broke out in a parking lot in flagstaff, shots were
7:16 am
fired, killing one student and wounding three other members of his fraternity. an 18-year-old student is under arrest. at texas southern in houston, one student was killed and another injured when gunfire erupted at a housing complex near the campus. at least two people are in custody. president obama is a on a west coast swing. he was at a political fundraiser in seattle and addressed the issue of the recent number of mass shootings in the u.s. >> we know we have to do something to prevent the kind of gun massacres that we saw just last week and two months before that and two months before that and two months before that because it is not normal. it is not nefltabinevitable it. doesn't just happen. it is a choice that we make and it is a choice that we can change. >> the president's visit to seattle came after his controversial visit to oregon.
7:17 am
here is john black stone with more on that. >> the protesters gathered at the roseburg airport carried both signs and guns, a potential nightmare for the secret service. allen montgomery made no attempt to hide his holsters. >> is this part of your statement here the fact that as i see it you have got a couple of guns on you. >> well it is not necessarily a statement more than it is just my right. >> as the president's helicopter arrived many showed their distaste for his call for more gun control. the white house indicated the president is considering an executive order that would require more gun retailers to conduct background checks. in spite of the killings here that remains ab unpopular position in this part of oregon. >> our second amendment says no infringement. that means no infringement. >> so anybody can have a gun, somebody with mental problems. >> yes. everybody can have a gun to defend themselves. so you can't just make us get a background check because somebody might have a mental problem.
7:18 am
>> the president's motorcade avoided the largest group of demonstrators on his way to roseburg high school, where he met privately with the families of all the victims of last week's shooting. >> we're going to come together as the country, but today is about the families. >> eric dietz is the former husband of shooting victim kim dietz. >> and he said to you? >> he said when it comes right down to it there are a lot of different opinions in our country. but really a lot more alike than we were different. >> so you found this today to be a comfort. >> this was a comfort and to know that he has concern for us here and is working at trying to figure out how to lessen the instance of this kind of situation is a good thing. >> the president's visit to roseburg was confined to a well protected area inside the high school. in spite of suggestions that demonstrators would try to block
7:19 am
roads, his motorcade came and went without disruption. for "cbs this morning saturday," john blackstone, roseburg oregon. >> north korea is holding its biggest military parade in history this morning in observance of the 70th anniversary of its communist party rule. it marks the founding of north korea as the communication nation in 1945 by kim's grandfather. kim announced his country is ready to stand up to any threat posed by the united states. coming up in our next half hour seth dome will join us from inside north korea for his take on today's festivities. >> the secret service agent credited with saving president ronald reagan's life in 1981 is being mourned today. he died of congestive heart failure on friday. he was 85. he was the agent who shoved mr. reagan into the back of the presidential limousine and ordered the car to the hospital during the assassination
7:20 am
attempt. he was not supposed to be there. but that decision may have saved reagan's life. we talked to him about that day. >> the first shot, the first thing you see, the first yell, the first scream, the first violence, you go into action. cover, cover and evacuate. cover and evacuate. got to get it embedded in your head as a muscle memory. >> and you were operating on more than training. it was instinct. >> yeah. instinct, intuition. a combination of both. and all of i wasn't afraid of him, to handle his body like that. when you are a young agent you are reluctant to do anything with him. but i wasn't. so it just happened to be that day for me. i hope that it never come because of what had happened with kennedy. >> former first lady nancy reagan i should a statement saying jerry par was one of her
7:21 am
heros. without him her husband would have been killed she said. the boston globe reports a federal judge is allowing the defamation suit against comedian bill cosby to go forward in massachusetts. the suit was filed by three women who accused cosby of tarnishing their reputations when he publicly dismissed their allegations of the sexual abuse. cosby's attorney could not be reached for comment. the statement came as cosby was expected to give a deposition in california in a similar but unrelated case. >> and california is bracing for the strongest el nino storm every. satellite pictures already show water temperatures rising in the pacific ocean. that means heavy rain is likely for parched california and the southern u.s. the "new york times" reports twitter is about to issue pink slips. jack dorsey, who was just reappointed ceo is planning to announce companywide job cuts as soon as next week. the company is also shelving plans to expand headquarters.
7:22 am
>> did you notice the new feature on twitter, moments? in response to get more users. new york mets slugger daniel murphy put some english into his home run last night. his fourth inning swing smacked the ball so hard that his name from his bat actually stayed on the ball. the mets shared the revolution writing that's going to leave a mark. murty's home run ball literally has its name on it. the mets wound upbeating the dodgers 3-1 in game win one of their national league division series. >> it says daniel right there on the ball. very hard. and some mets fans were very happy. >> including mr. mason. >> and our friends at cbs sports report comedian keegan michael key pulled a fast one on penn state's football team. he bears a slight resemblance to head coach franklin. and impersonated him during the
7:23 am
team meeting. most of the players caught on and grabbed a couple of laughs. and he's a penn state alum nis and drones are becoming a hazard around the nation's airports. and later how a scandal in the online sports betting world has focused critical attention on a website for betting on politics. you are watching "cbs this morning saturday."

the 44th annual balloon fiesta is in full swing in new mexico this weekend. time lapse video shows the liftoff of hundreds of colorful hot air balloons of all shapes and sizes. it is one of the most photographed events of the year. the nine day fiesta ends tomorrow. >> you can see why. isn't that cool. >> i love that. our top story this half hour, youing danger in the sky from krodrones. police spotted a drone near the washington monument on friday afternoon. the owner said he was taking pictures of the washington monokmumon monument when the wind blew the drone across the street.
7:31 am
and close calls with manned aircraft are on the rise. as of september 28th they have logged 20 reports of drone sights this year. most from commercial or general aviation pilots. federal data shows california has had more close calls than any state. lawmakers there are working to launch an offensive so drones can safe lly co-exist with plan and helicopters. >> it's becoming a battle between this and this. in just the past two weeks, four pilots coming into the los angeles international airport have reported dangerous encounters with drones. it is a growing problem not only in california but across the country. in july a drone narrowly missed a jet carrying 154 passengers as it approached new york's jfk airport. the federal aviation administration announced this
7:32 am
week it is taking action. >> we recognize the technology associated with unmanned aircraft is continuing to evol e evolve. earlier today we announced a research ingredient that evaluates technology. >> revolution the industries. >> investor ted leonsis believes the government needs to regulate drones before it is too late. >> we are one major accident away from basically the government saying we're shutting down the drone industry. and that would be bad for the economy. that would be bad for all of the people that will one day work in this industry. >> california is working on regulations of its own. according to an analysis of federal data, one in five dangerous drone incidents occur in the golden state and have been on the rise since last year. governor jerry brown signed
7:33 am
antipaparazzi legislation earlier this week preventing photo or video taking drones from flying over private property. and further restrictions waning civilians from flying drones over wild fires. >> the technology right now is ahead of what government thinks and is doing. so we need some kind of infrastructural support that the faa can provide us. >> for "cbs this morning saturday," ben tracie, los angeles. coming up an sos for the retired liner of the ss united states. time is running out to preserve
7:34 am
up next medical news in our morning rounds. why patients are often charged different prices for the same medical procedures, and whether you can do about it. and doctors on research linking later bedtimes with gaining weight. you are watching "cbs this morning saturday." ibs-d. you know the symptoms when they start. abdominal pain. urgent diarrhea. now there's prescription xifaxan. xifaxan is a new ibs-d treatment that helps relieve your diarrhea and abdominal pain symptoms. and xifaxan works differently. it's a prescription antibiotic that acts mainly in the digestive tract. do not use xifaxan if you have a history of sensitivity
7:35 am
to rifaximin, rifamycin antibiotic agents, or any components of xifaxan. tell your doctor right away if your diarrhea worsens while taking xifaxan, as this may be a sign of a serious or even fatal condition. tell your doctor if you have liver disease or are taking other medications, because these may increase the amount of xifaxan in your body. tell your doctor if you are pregnant, plan on becoming pregnant, or are nursing. the most common side effects are nausea and an increase in liver enzymes. if you think you have ibs with diarrhea, talk to your doctor about new xifaxan.
7:36 am
wheall i can think abouthit, is getting relief. only nicorette mini has a patented fast-dissolving formula. it starts to relieve sudden cravings fast. i never know when i'll need relief. that's why i only choose nicorette mini. that gives you better taste and better nutrition in so many varieties. classic. cage free. and organic. only eggland's best. better taste. better nutrition. better eggs.
7:37 am
time for morning first up a new study found patients are often charged drastically different prices for the same medical procedures. here is john with more. >> in 2008 when nancy marie burgman of new york was diagnosed with breast cancer,
7:38 am
she struggled not only with her disease but with figuring out how much it would all cost. >> it put more stress on me than the actual diagnosis of cancer. >> the report of castlight health ranked city bis common women services. sacramento, california ranked highest on mammograms at an average of $485 compared to $159 in cincinnati. michelle scott is general council for fair health, a consumer organization that tries to make healthcare costs more transparent. >> has there been anything that's just knocked your socks off? >> i think sometimes that there are such disparates stying in pricing and they can occur within blocks of each other. >> for example. a mammogram here cost 211 dollars. and just 30 miles away the same
7:39 am
test costs $95. >> why the wide range? >> there are a lot of different circumstances and cost may be driven up by other factors. over head rental considerations and the methods doctors use to perform the procedure. >> i think consumers need to take a more active role. there are tools they can use in order to make proper decisions so that they can with be the educated consumer which we theed to be in today's day and age. >> what can you do to learn more about the cost of these services? >> there are these online tools. that is we did it for the piece. we plugged in zip code and are you ensured and what is the procedure code and it told us what the price was. in addition you really need do some footwork. which is the last thing you want do when you have just within given a diagnosis but you may have to pick up the phone and track it down. >> the thing that scarce me,
7:40 am
when you see two different prices you wonder somehow if the cheaper price is not going to be as good if you know what i'm saying. >> right. and that is an issue. but we're going to assume animal gram in one place is the same as in another. that may not be perfectly true. you shop around for mortgage. right? if you get a 4% mortgage or 5% morning. you take the 4%. money is money. and hopefully there is this quality of care the same across the board. >> can you ask your doctor, it's cheaper over there, can you match that price? or is it not a conversation you should have. >> >> it is not only doctors but radiologic centers or places you doctor might refer. i would say it is more important for women to do the price comparisons. even though the pricing is there for testing that happen with men, women tend to consume more than men so we need to pay tx even more. >> i love what you just said about asking your doctor because
7:41 am
we tend to avoid that. but yes we have to talk to the doctor. and doctors have to know better how much things cost and have to be able to be their partner and help them out. you goo a restaurant and see things, pay and leave. here you may consume all of these different product, procedures and you don't find out until weeks or months later i'm in the hole for a lot of money. >> next up the 2015 dietary guidelines for americans are expected by the end of the year. a congressional hearing took up the proposal this week. the committee spard with federal officials over several of the recommendations. is that what you are supposed to eat in a given day? >> it is really sort of a broad advice that comes outs every five years. the last time it came out was in 2010 and now we're expecting to get new dietary guidelines in december of this year. it is pout by both the department of agriculture and the department of health and
7:42 am
hoourvess. and it is advised by a large panel of scientists and people in the medical community. it is supposed to provide broad advice to the american individual about nutrition. what should we be eating and not be eating. and what's really significant is it also has policy so because of that they are always the target of lobbying groups. already even though the new guidelines aren't out the meat industry the sugar industry has already kind of tried to discredit the guidelines by saying it is outdated science. don't listen to them. >> and what are some of the more highly debated proposals this year. >> and they are highly debated. there have been more than 29,000 comments since it was release. some are not controversial. you can eat more fruits and
7:43 am
vegetables, whole kbrgrains. then there is dairy. a healthy diet is higher in low or non fat dare. and then others say whole milk in the right amount is fine. not today. and then you have this argument about well, how much is too much? >> and i also when you look at what will likely be the 2015 dietary guidelines compared to 2010, everything changes but everything stays the same. really the bottom line is eating, as john said a diet high in fruit, vegetables, beans, nuts. low fat dairy. fish. we know this type of diet cuts down on condition likes diabetes, heart disease, cancers and avoiding things like sugar, fat, processed foods really only has upside. >> eat real food. and by the way and if you look at the label and your grandmother would not have recognized a bunch of the stuff,
7:44 am
maybe it is not the best. >> eat real food. i like the advice. >> i can't take credit. michael pollen. >> finally, as if we needed another reason to hit the hay a little earlier, a new study finds weight gain may be linked to late bedtimes. researchers analyzed data from more than 3300 pre teens, teenagers and adults. they found every hour they delayed their bedtimes was associated with a gain of just over 2 points on the body mass index. this increase happened over a period of about five years. >> i think it is so interesting as well. particular i as it relates to teens. because teens naturally, their circadian cycles start to adjust and they want to go to bed later. but then they might end up missing out on a certain amount of sleep. but even the they get the same amount of sleep it was still associated with this bmi increase. >> it is not just the duration but it is actually if it's later
7:45 am
the circadian. >> also you are bored. up, eating. >> and junk food. >> thank you both very much. up next, place your bets folks, who will be the next speaker of the house? yes you can really bet on politics. where, how and why it is so controversial. you are watching "cbs this morning saturday."

gas taxes rise in 2015. more from political reporter. gabriel, good morning. how does this website actually work is this. >> it is just like any other online gambling site. you go in there and place a bet. using real money on any number of political topics from who is going to be the next speaker of the house to when is donald trump going to drop out of the nomination contest? it is online and it takes 10% of the profits. and you just follow the markets. >> most online betting and betting on elections in fact are illegal in the u.s. how does this website get around that? >> well this website has a letter from the commodities futures trading commission, the government agency that basically says we're not going to do any action. to make a long story short it is for educational and research purposes. and there are some restrictions. you have to be 18 years or older. the maximum bet is $850.
7:50 am
and it is illegal in two states. you can't do it in washington or.5. so they get around it. >> what about betting on something political and you have some knowledge of the serious of events. what happens if you say have say reporters betting on a website like this? >> yeah. that is a really good question and not one there is a good answer to yet. it is a real topic of conversation. if you work on a campaign or o if you are a reporter and privy to inside information there is nothing they can do to stop you from getting in there and making an early bet and a lot of money. it is a topic of conversation they are looking into but for now there is nothing they can do. >> and the daily fantasy sports leagues were rocked by scandal this week. are there concerns of this here. >> there are some concerns but this is a much smaller market. just a few dozen, thousand people are involved in this. it could get much bigger as things heat up in the preside

presidential election but there is not a worry that this is going to have the same scope. >> it seems like there are some theory this is could enhance the collective wisdom of the market and that in some ways this could really shift things. is there any truth in that? could one market effect the others? >> well it is not clear yet but it is true these things have been pretty accurate in the past and it is pretty useful for research purposes. people pay attention to this stuff, certainly. there were different markets that were in play in 2012 and 2008 and there was no doubt the political professionals were really looking at it. these things have predicted the elections pretty accurately. it is not 100% but the people involved with these kind of things who are paying close attention for the most part tend to know what they are talking about. >> do you think the campaigns are paying attention to this? >> they certainly aren't as much as their fundraising numbers or poll numbers but yeah certainly. we know for example that the bush campaign, jeb bush's
7:52 am
campaigns, has pointed to this stuff when trying to tell voters calm down. things are going okay. people still think that jeb is going to be the nominee or one of the top contenders. so we know cam pabs are using this as the way to say either don't worry or maybe we should worry a little bit. >> even though they put in some stops to protect how much you can bet, people are making money. thank you so much. >> coming up. changing times. another relic of the 20th century bites the dust. the very last cards for libraries. card clog catalogs have been printed and shipped. you are watching "cbs this morning saturday." if you're an adult with type 2 diabetes and your a1c is not at goal with certain diabetes pills or daily insulin, your doctor may be talking about adding medication to help lower your a1c. ask your doctor if adding once-a-week tanzeum
7:53 am
is right for you. once-a-week tanzeum is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes, along with diet and exercise. once-a-week tanzeum works by helping your body release its own natural insulin when it's needed. tanzeum is not recommended as the first medicine to treat diabetes or in people with severe stomach or intestinal problems. tanzeum is not insulin. it is not used to treat type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis, and has not been studied with mealtime insulin. do not take tanzeum if you or your family have a history of medullary thyroid cancer or multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you're allergic to tanzeum or any of its ingredients. stop using tanzeum and call your doctor right away if you experience symptoms of a serious allergic reaction which may include itching, rash, or difficulty breathing; if you have signs of pancreatitis, such as severe stomach pain that will not go away and may move to your back, with or without vomiting; or if you have symptoms of thyroid cancer which include a lump or swelling in your neck,
7:54 am
hoarseness, trouble swallowing, or shortness of breath. before using tanzeum, talk to your doctor about your medical conditions, all medicines you're taking, if you're nursing, pregnant, or may become pregnant. and about low blood sugar and how to manage it. taking tanzeum with a sulfonylurea or insulin increases your risk for low blood sugar. common side effects with tanzeum include diarrhea, nausea, injection site reactions, cough, back pain, and cold or flu symptoms. some serious side effects can lead to dehydration which may cause kidney failure. ask your doctor if adding once-a-week tanzeum is right for you. go to tanzeum.com to learn if you may be eligible to receive tanzeum free for 12 months. make every week a tanzeum week. feel like this. look like this. feel like this. with dreamwalk insoles, turn shoes that can be a pain into comfortable ones. their soft cushioning support means you can look like this.

8:32 am
>> the film's greatest achievement is recreating through 3-d and cgi an event that was only captured in still images that day. >> the viewer in the film obviously gets to look at everything around them. were you seeing all that? >> no. no. and there was a beautiful scene, a beautiful treatment of the moment by the director just as i'm stepping on the wire. the whole world does not exist. only a wire was there in my mind. he managed to show that by having some fog invade the screen. and then we see the wire seemingly walking to infinite, to another planet. and then as i step on it the fog diminishes and we wake up nice new york and the tower. >> how do you make yourself do that? not see the city. >> at the beginning, my concentration was simplistic. to block the entire world and concentrate on the wire.

8:34 am
shoulder, although i'm not at the end of that line, you know, 66 years old. i'm not in the middle either. i'm an old man who refused to grow old. and when i look over the shoulder to my life i see one thread, one line. pun suspended of courpend sbent. >> he crossed that wire eight times that morning. and never actually even came close to falling. and he said he did stop and he sat on the wire in the middle because at that moment he wanted to look down and see the city underneath him. >> so fascinating to hear him say open and closed. >> he dreamed of it for six years. the minute they opened the building
