7:59 am
wife is a primary bread winner of the family. >> yeah. it was never a problem for us. i mean, we started. >> securing. >> who he is. >> i am, perhaps. honestly, it's all we've ever known. it's all we've ever known, chris was in law school when we got married. so from the beginning, i was paying school tuition bills and working. so it was kind of natural. it's fought something we thought about or ever really cared about. >> never cared about? >> never cared about. >> so i'm proud of her. i think the end of it is, the football, if gender stuff aside, she's my partner. i'm proud of her. >> a lot of men don't see it that way. >> i don't know why, it's a grea example for our daughters in particular. your worth does not come from who you marry. your worth comes from who you are. for our sons, i think for them to see this kind of false macho about you have to be the bigger

8:10 am
authentic about. we spend more time taking people to the outdoors. >> will you do an ad about this? >> we took an ad letting people we are closed. >> it's not about authenticity and brand? >> very much so. >> do you think it's become too cluttered a marketplace on plaque prid? everybody is opened at, what time, 5:00 in the morning, all night to get the tv on sale at k-mart. with eshow the pick, everybody rushing the aisles. so this was not only a marking decision? >> i would say it was more a brand. i think it's a brand perspective, the contrast between what is happening on black friday and i think the joy associated with being outside is rather stark so it's a particularly good day to maim the point how popular it is outside. >> thestep skeptics say, jerry, this is a pr play on your part.
8:11 am
you sound nice and fuzzy, we want people to get outside, it could be a huge pr employers, some people could say. >> i would be a little different. i don't expect to see a bunch of other retailers close on black friday. think about that. >> if you want attention to the fact that are you doing this. >> i think that attention creates the platform of the power of getting outside. >> i think it's great. a great idea. >> i love your hiking boots. >> absolutely, three grandsons coming out, we will go up on the mountain. >> sides 10, thank you, jerry. bravo to you and your company. >> are you going to ask what he's doing tonight? >> no. >> thank you, jerry. >> the kansas city royals, inside joke. kansas city royals. >> she asked people like bradley cooper. >> now i'm hurt. the first pitch tonight at the world series t. royals got the

have essentially a cyber time bombs inside out power grid. they probably won't use them because which and the chinese and the russians have so many interconnected relationships. if you start thinking about the iranians and the north koreans and groups like isis, they all are developing the same kind of capability and they wouldn't be restrained the same way that the chinese and the russians are. >> you know what's so frustrated about the book, it's not a question of if, but when, we are not prepared, reading your book made it. it was very frightening to me how little prepared we are. >> what scares me, gayle, is the fact that people in government, leon panetta, the president twice in state of the union addresses has warned about those kind of things happening. when you ask, however, what the government's preparations are for the public in the event that
8:22 am
transfire i pire and we would be potentially tens of millions of people without electricity for months at a time. >> if they don't view it you are vently? >> what i'm saying is, there is no plans, there are plans for hurricanes, snowstorms, plans for earthquakes, there is no plan for a cyber attack that would be infinitely longer in duration and more widespread than any of those natural disasters. >> you on an interview, you sat down with the homeland security, what did you say when you asked him of a lack of plans or lack of one? >> he point. ed at white biernsd and said i'm sure there is a plan out there. i said, don't you think that would be smart to get that plan out to the public before there is a massive break-in, in electrical power? he said, look, this is a relatively simple. . you need a. >> reporter: you need a battery powered radio.
8:23 am
goes out, what are we going to tell people? >> or word he got a lick i little prickly. >> he did get a little prickly. >> we did reach out no former homeland security. we got a full page of details in the case of an attack. they said how they coordinate with fema and local officials, they're working with the private sector for more resources in support. i think to your point, if the lights went out, it's more than just the light. explain what could actually happen to people if there is a massive cyber attack. >> in a place like manhattan, for example, if the power goes out. you know how the fire department and the police are the first couple of days, getting people out of stalled elevators, you are talking about a community of what 8ple people? the food in a place like manhattan would run out in a couple of days. new york state has several
8:24 am
eat. but when you take several and divide it by 8 million. are you talking maybe a two or three-day food supply. what happens on day four? what happens on day five? >> what country is prepared in. >> well, i spent three days in salt lake city with leaders of the mormon church and they showed me everything. i don't know if they showed me everything they got. but they showed me a great deal. they are extraordinarily well prepared. not for a cyber attack. mormons, after all, are people who have been driven for 200 years in this country. they have made a culture of preparing for disaster. they're ready for it. most of the rest of us are not. >> you point out in your book, for the first time the government -- >> do you ever let this guy ask a question? >> okay. go ahead.
8:25 am
>> no, no, go ahead. >> gayle reads your entire book. she read the buyer book. >> i'm sorry. i shouldn't have said that. >> how long are you staying here? i'm so excited about the book, let me just ask you this, you said for the first time the government needs to worry about the internet being a weapon of mass destruction. >> absolutely. >> you also say, how do you prepare for something when you don't know where and when it could come from? it can come from anywhere? >> what i'm suggesting is we need to prepare for the consequences of a cyber attack. it's not enough just to say, yes, we know it's going to happen. we don't know where, when, how many people will be affected. we are not ready. the first secretary of homeland security said to me, you know, we are not a preemptive society. we react to events. if you think about the briefing
8:26 am
we did in the wake of 9/11, we spent $3 trillion. >> ted, you already said that leon panetta in his senate confirmation hearings said the next pearl harbor will be a cyber attack. you talked about the fact that the president mentioned it. you would think that that alone would create some sense of urgency. >> i think people are a little bit worried about preparing the american public for something they are not 100% sure is going to happen. my sense of it, though, is we're better off prepared. let's say we prepared for something that doesn't happen. then we will at least be prepared for any other disaster that is going along. after spending two years on this, i am convinced at some point or another it's going to happen. >> sandy is an cakes of the consequences. >> is there a brief answer to tht question? >> the only brief answer is i heard some of these warnings, i picked up the phone. i called homeland security. i called fema.
8:27 am
i got stuck in three different phone freeze. >> listening to your voice, god, i miss you ted koppel on tv. do you miss it? do you miss the day-to-day? >> not terribly. the day-to-day, not at all. >> don't worry about me talking. we do an hour. . it's a conference here in new york. >> i will give charlie some questions. he will be ready for it. >> ted cop em, thank you. >> thank you so much. >> "lights out" goes on sale today.

jeb bush was a very strong governor, probably the strongest governor in the history of the state of florida. he was a young guy and i think there were some folks in the legislature that thought they might be able to run over him. that didn't happen. one tax cut wasn't enough- he had to do more. it wasn't enough to have 15,000 kids with school choice in florida, he wanted to have 100,000 kids. if he didn't like a project, it was going to be vetoed. it didn't matter if you were a republican. it didn't matter if you were his best friend. he said: 'this is where we're going, this is how we're going to reform state government...' every politician comes in talking about making change, and generally there's not much change. but governor bush made a lot of changes. he got the nickname veto corleone. if he saw something in the budget that he thought violated his conservative principles, you could guarantee it was gonna get whacked. he vetoed a bunch of my stuff and i was the senate president. the message to washington, d.c., is 'get ready...' because there will be change. nright to rise usa is responsible
