graciousness. beautiful manners. not the first three attributes we associate with tv news in the 21st century. which is one of the many reasons we are grateful to charles osgood. >> it starts with your voice, warm, comforting, iconic. your voice lulls one in, whether narrating a story or singing christmas carols or recite go a little ditty, i know a few one of the best in broadcasting. and to borrow from the "saturday night live" character linda richman, your voice, charles osgood is like buttah. >> for me and many others the best is every time you sit at the piano and share your shots in rhyme. a shame you're stepping down right now, because have you even the news? the world is feeling darker lately. we could use a muse.
9:42 am
which gives "sunday morning" its music, it's tempo and humanism. maybe less folksy than it first seems. it leaves room for bitter irony, for recognition of all the world's horrors. but it also evokes a child like sense of wonder. unquenchable believe in the human capacity to grow and change. >> there are very few tv news icons whose stock in trade is and mankind will flourish. you were one of them, maybe the only one. >> it's been one of the great honors of my life to be in your chorus from time to time. in age of us against them you made us feel we were all in it together. what a gift that has been. >> you showed us how to be classy, kind and earnest. in an age of urgent intolerance and irony. on "sunday morning" some people go to mass but they return home

9:44 am
t any history of mental health problems, which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side effect is nausea. this is for real. i'm a non-smoker.

rfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? i spoke to my doctor and she told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... ...turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless you doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots.
