becomes a terrifying plunge for a woman celebrating her 80th birthday. it was a wild ride she said but i don't need to do it again. all that and so much more on "cbs this morning: saturday" may 26, 2012. captioning funded by cbs the picture of the skydive series itself into your brain. >> it is the perfect image to start this long memorial day weekend. >> we'll explore that and a lot more this morning. first, we do begin with a man charged with murdering etan patz here in new york 33 years ago. pedro hernandez is in a hospital this morning on suicide watch. est arrested thursday after confessing to strangling the 6-year-old back in 1979. now police are looking for evidence to corroborate his confession. john miller has been following this case since day one. he joins us now with the latest. good morning. >> good morning, jeff. that's right, the suspect in
8:02 am
this case has been arraigned and he has confessed to killing etan patz, but his lawyer now says he's mentally ill, bipolar and susceptible to hallucinations. 51-year-old pedro hernandez was arraigned on charges of second-degree murder in the death of etan patz yesterday. the suspect appeared in court over a closed-circuit tv from a hospital room. hernandez is being treated for an existing health problem and is under psychiatric evaluation after threatening suicide. police say he confessed to the strangling of the 6-year-old boy in a 3 1/2 hour videotaped statement three days ago. in 1979 hernandez was an 18-year-old stock boy at a grocery store just 200 feet from the patz's front door. etan's parents, stan and julie patz returned home friday. friends tell us news of the arrest is still sinking in.
8:03 am
police made the arrest after receiving a tip from hernandez's own family. the suspect's brother-in-law, jose lopez says he has no doubt hernandez is the killer and that the arrest has been a big relief to the family. >> i don't know what to think really. somebody we knew, you know in the family do something like that and just came out now. >> reporter: a law enforcement source told us lopez was, in fact the man who brought the tip to new york city detectives weeks ago. after seeing news reports about police digging up a basement, looking for patz's body. >> he did the right thing you know, to confess. >> reporter: the investigation into the disappearance of patz was reopened in 2010. police were working off a short list of suspects. pedro hernandez was not on it. >> so, we can see the pathways are being kavbed out. prosecutors have to build that
8:04 am
case with police to defend that confession and hold it up and the lawyer has already started with claims of hallucinations bipolar disease and other things to try and cut it apart. >> interesting. i want to ask you about that. we also bring in lisa cohen, the aut of "after etan," a producer for cbs and also abc. welcome to you as well. let's talk about the claim of mental illness. how does that affect the defense? >> i think that that is defense 101, which is you have a guy that gives a clear, compelling detailed confession you have to either say that he was tricked into it or that he was making it up. and i think they're beginning to forge that bath. >> lisa, what does the patz family think about all of this. do they think he made this up? >> i think they just found out about this person. they hadn't heard of him over the last 33 years. i think they're trying to take it in. they don't understand. >> did they ever see him? >> no. >> in the neighborhood?
8:05 am
>> no -- well, i don't know that. they may be looking back through their memory and realize that. at first glance, no. >> john when it comes to connecting this individual to the crime, all they have right now is his saying that he's connected to it. how do they make a conviction here? >> well a confession in and of itself is not legally sustainable for a conviction. but it needs to be corroborated. so there's the low bar of corroboration, he confessed to taking a boy named etan patz. corroborating factor is a boy named etan patz disappeared, he worked in the deli he knew etan patz as a kid that passed through the neighborhood, so on. but they'll look for more. how often did he make these statements? to how many family members? what exactly did he say and over how many years? are there people that worked in the store with him back then that remember on this day i remember he disappeared for half an hour and when he came back i
8:06 am
said, where were you and he said x. they'll are to build around it. >> right now he appears to be saying he lured him in then and then immediately strangled him, which i know police are look at and questioning and trying to get a little more information around exactly what happened. >> you also don't need to sustain a confession -- or conviction motive. but juries want it. juries like to know the why. there's something missing in the story here. it's very unlikely he just lured a boy down to the base wment a soda and killed him for the simple thrill of it and then went his whole life without a serious crime again. there's probably something else there. whether it was a sexual assault. he's dealing with the guilt by admitting to the crime, but the real motive probably has to do with shame, whih if his story is true he hasn't confronted yet. >> there's been so many stops and starts in this case. the parents kept up home the killer would be found. do you believe this will create some level of peace for them? >> certainly, not right away.
8:07 am
i think it's going to raise a whole new level of stress. i mean they're under siege right now by the press, sort of trapped in their home dealing with all of these new -- brand new facts they have never heard before. ultimately, certainly not resolute -- rernlcertainly not, you know, total peace. you never get over something like this. but you always look for answers. >> they stayed in the same place for 33 years hoping etan would come home. >> never changing their phone number. >> i don't think they think he's going to come home. at first that's what it was. >> appreciate it. the memorial day weekend traditionally kicks off the summer travel season and millions of americans are hitting the road today. one big reason or at least one of them is that they have a little extra cash in their pockets because gas prices are down. but off the road there was a scary incident yesterday in miami. moments after an american airlines jet landed in miami. so, we get more of that from
8:08 am
elaine quijano who joins us live. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. there were tense moments aboard that flight to miami yesterday. now, one man is facing federal charges, including interfering with a flight crew. the holiday travel weekend got off to a rough start for passengers aboard american airlines flight 320, bound from jamaica to the u.s. the fbi says a canadian 24-year-old ryan snyder rushed to the front of the plane minutes after it landed in miami. passengers subdued him before police came. >> i actually extended my hand to kind of -- like i was going to shake his hand. from that point i was able to maneuver and flip it -- his arm up behind. >> reporter: no one was hurt. the fbi says the incident wasn't terror related and local police say snyder appeared to be drunk. the travel forecast for the rest of the holiday weekend looks slightly better than last year.
8:09 am
aaa estimates nearly 31 million people will drive to their destinations over the next three days.pthat's about 400,000 more than a year ago. but travel is still nowhere near its 2005 pre-recession peak. that's when 44 million americans traveled over memorial day weekend compared to the 34.8 million expected this weekend. aaa robertson sinclair says although gas prices are down this year compared to last year drivers still have them very much in mind. >> 47% said gasoline prices would have an affect on their traveling. so gasoline prices are still a major factor for a lot of people. >> reporter: with unemployment at just over 8% and a sluggish economic recovery, researchers are also noticing a bigger difference in how income is affecting travel plans. >> people who are making more than $100,000 a year will be traveling this year. people making less than $50,000
8:10 am
are traveling less. >> reporter: as for air travel aaa says that's about to drop 5.5%. spending is expected to rise slightly to about $702 up about $10 from last year. >> elaine quijano, thanks. and as elaine just mentioned, gas prices are down slightly this holiday weekend. according to aaa, the national average for a gallon of regular is $3.67, and that is four cents cheaper than last week. a month ago the price was $3.84. a year ago it was $3.81. >> joining us is tom of the oil price information service. if you want to know where gas prices are heading this is the man to talk to. good morning. so gas prices have been following consistently, about half a cent a day for the last month. what's behind that? >> crude oil prices went too high. they went to $130 internationally and now they've come off to about $100 $105. that was part of it. the other part -- i mean
8:11 am
basically gas prices were too high. we get sloppy drunk every year the trading community, and this was no exception. >> in response to fears out of iran, perhaps there would be a war, and china consuming more of it and europe falling into recession has certainly cut into demand here. >> japan has left the radar screen for now. we've used less than we have in prior years and part of that malaise in oil in general is because of the economic weakness in europe particularly in emerging economies. >> what about the refinery issues, both on the east coast and west. there was some concern about that. >> there were refineries that were going to close on the east coast. they have not done that. on the west coast we can't get everything to work well so the west coast has much higher prices. but i think it will be very comfortable. there's money to be made in refining crude right now and
8:12 am
that usually motivates -- >> it certainly becomes a tale of two and some people in california watching saying wait a minute prices aren't coming down here. i want to ask you, tom, about the government's estimate for this summer. they think it's going to be $3.79 on average for americans to pay a gallon of gas, up eight cents from last year. are you on board with that? >> i'm on board with it but an estimate always talks about an average. average is very, very misleading. we'll see $3 $3.10 in places like the southeast. $4 $4.25 in the northwest. it's like two governors saying the average weight of the governor is this. the northwest will be very high for a while. but the whole country should calm down and it will be about the price we paid last year but considerably more than 2010. >> higher or lower come election time in. >> lower. prices always move lower from labor day to election day. has nothing to do with politics. everything to do with you can
8:13 am
bake more cheapen ingredients into the gasoline cake. and that will happen. >> appreciate it. lower driving costs are good news for travelers but in the southeast, tropical storm warning from areas of florida. they say a system in the atlantic will be tropical storm beryl before the weekend is out. to talk about that and the 2012 hurricane season we bring in dave bernard, cbs's hurricane expert from miami. good morning. >> good morning, jeff. >> tell us about beryl. >> we're talking -- all right. i will. in fact, you're right. the warnings are up. right now, the hurricane center's classifying it as subtropical. that just means it's not a purely tropical system. it's moving to the west at around 5 miles per hour. winds right now, 45 miles per hour. it's about 260 miles east to charleston south carolina. this is going to move quick to the south and west tonight. we think by sunday night and early monday morning, making landfall as tropical storm in
8:14 am
north east florida or possibly along the georgia coastline. that's going to mean a wet and windy holiday weekend for these areas, including the south carolina coast. even into next week it may turn around and reform as a tropical storm somewhere near cape hatteras, north carolina. not the news you want to get going into the holiday weekend. we don't anticipate the storm to become a hurricane. >> dave what are we looking at for the hurricane season this year, which kicks off on june 1st, as you know? >> right. i guess right now the best guess that we can talk about when we look at numbers is that we're looking at an average hurricane season. that usually consists of, say, 11 storms 6 hurricanes and also two major hurricanes. that would be below the 19 storms we had last year. and one of the big factors in that, jeff is this developing el nino, warm water in the pacific. that leaves a lot to rising air in the pacific. lots of thunderstorms there. in fact they'll probably see more storms in the pacific than the atlantic.
8:15 am
but on the other hand that leads to disruptive wind shear in the atlantic. that's bad for storms. they don't like to see wind shear. that is not favorable for strong storm formation. >> dave bernard from wfor. appreciate it. thank you very much. and now we turn to the john edwards trial, which is still going. jurors have the holiday weekend off. they'll begin their seventh day of deliberations on tuesday. friday afternoon the judge abruptly cleared the courtroom, consulting with attorneys, and then sent the jury home. here to stortort out what's going on, "48 hours" correspondent, erin moriarty also an attorney and following the john edwards case. >> can you imagine what it must be like for john edwards and his family? you know, they have to stick pretty close to the courtroom. and just as day goes on and his life is on hold and in the balance, it's very tough. >> we said there's no way we
8:16 am
would see erin next saturday. >> right. i might be here next saturday. no i don't know. look i'm not really surprised it's taking this long. we talked about this a little bit. yesterday what happened was -- at least what we think happened because all we can really tell is from what the judge said in the open courtroom. but she admonished the jurors. they're only supposed to talk about the case when they're all together, the 12 are together. apparently they may have been talking in small groups. so that could be just that they made the mistake or -- then i got this feeling -- is that i sign of an early divide. maybe a couple people are saying what are you going to do when we can go back in? we can't tell. we won't be able to tell until next week. >> where are the gray areas in the evidence? >> just about the entire case. >> everything? >> yeah. can i just show you -- you know as i've talked about there were 45 pages of jury instructions. so that's what these jurors have to deal with. and i want to show you really to me what one of the more
8:17 am
difficult things they have to determine. so, part of it says don't look at any evidence about the intent or goals of miss mellon. >> not present in the courtroom. >> exactly. and then they also say in this that the government does not have to prove that the soul and only purpose of the money was to influence the election because people often have different intentions. so, here's what the jury has to do. they have to take a look at rachel mellon's intent and determine what the real purpose was for giving money. they have to look at also fred baron, his intent. neither one of them testified. they have to know what john edwards was thinking. he didn't testify. so, then we have to go look at all the evidence. last week they asked for exhibit after exhibit. so many exhibits because the judge finally said to them, why don't you just take all the exhibits? but here's the problem with exhibits. i could even show you some.
8:18 am
so, here is one -- probably the most damaging for bunny mellon and it's a letter she sent. we call it the haircut letter because she sent it to andrew young. remember when he was criticized for his $400 haircuts. so she send this letter and says basically i'm going to start paying for these things. then here's the line please send the bills to me. it is a way of helping our friends. here's the three words -- without government restriction. so that's looks really damaging. she's avoiding the law, except for her lawyer testified, no she just liked john edwards and really wanted to help him. so every piece of evidence you look at it's contradicted by testify or other evidence. that's what this jury is struggling with. >> if we talk about it next week, we'll have something new. erin more airty, thank you very much. we appreciate it. the first round of egypt's landmark presidential election
8:19 am
has set up a roundoff next month between two very different candidates. one is deposed hosni mubarak's former prime minister who has the backing of egyptian christians. about 10% of the population. the other is a member of the muslim brotherhood which seeks to impose more islamic law in egypt. here at home it will not be a holiday weekend for firefighters battling fires across the dry and windy southwest. one fire is blocking 85,000 acres so far. more than 500 firefighters are trying to bring it under control. major fires are also burning in arizona and southern california. and vice president joe biden addressed the families of fallen soldiers friday in arlington, virginia. his very personal remarks shed new light on his own grief four decades ago after losing his first wife and daughter in a car accident. >> for the first time in my life i understood how someone could consciously decide to commit suicide. not because they were deranged,
8:20 am
not because they were nuts. because they had been to the top of the mountain and they just knew in their heart they'd never get there again. folks, it can and will get better. there will come a day, i promise you, and your parents as well, when the fog of your son or daughter or your husband or wife brings a smile to your lips before it brings a tear to your eye. >> biden says his life finally turned around when he met and married his second wife jill. it's about 20 minute past the hour. with more on our holiday weather weekend, we have lonnie quinn. >> good morning to you. want to give you a little shot of the empire state building. what i'd like to do is show you the satellite and radar image that would go with the entire country because you're going to find -- first of all, subtrob cal storm beryl. you can see it 250 miles
8:21 am
southeast of charleston south carolina. but i'm looking at this area of disturbed weather in the northern tier of our country. a front from northern rockies up to northern new england. it's around the northern rockies rockies, montana portions of wyoming, we're talking snow above 6,000 feet. look at this 1 to 2 feet of snow. somebody tell i will tell you, everybody, a big swath of cool air in a big portion of our country. >> thank you, lonnie. here's an interesting story that's getting some attention. the faa is now investigating an
8:22 am
online video that's gone viral. why? because it looks like an 80-year-old woman was pushed out of an airplane. dave broad >> whose idea was all this? >> mine. >> and the occasion? >> i just turned 80. >> reporter: for her 80th birthday lavern everett decided she wanted to jump out of an airplane, but after strapping on her goggles, it looks like she changed her mind. now she maintains her knees gave out and her tandem diving instructor was just giving her a nudge. >> he knew how bad i wanted to jump. >> reporter: but after they started their descent it seemed like the 80th would be the last. shes her blouse flew up over her face and she couldn't see what was going on. she just said hold on. the photographer shooting the video even tried in to help. laverns she has no idea how scared she should have been until she saw the video which
8:23 am
was shot a year ago. lavern seems a little overwhelmed by the thousands of hits on youtube. something the now 81-year-old lavern is a bucket list that just won't quit a spokesman for the faa says they were unaware of the incident until they saw the individual notice. for "cbs this morning: saturday," cbs news. >> she's okay. >> she's all good. even if she doesn't want to go don't make her go correct? >> correct. >> we'll be right back. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday."

8:31 am
half hour. prince william and kate one year ago, 2 billion people around the world celebrated their marriage. since then their popularity has only grown. they're britain's most famous couple. they've been credited with re-energizing british monarchy and they're taking a starring role in the queen's diamond jubilee. let's go to charlie d'agata at buckingham palace. >> reporter: good morning to you. i've been here for more than 20 years now. i've never known the royal family to be this popular. in fact, they've been downright unpopular in the past. even as this country's in the grips of a double-dip recession, they're finding plenty of cause for celebration. the royals are on a roll. they're enjoying kind of approval ratings that would make a presidential candidate giddy. and they can think their two biggest stars for the bump. >> as far as the queen is concerned, i mean william's marriage to kate was an absolute blessing for the monarchy because they're young, golden, hope for the future. >> reporter: since their wedding
8:32 am
last year the golden couple have blossomed even further, developing a sense of celebrity not seen since the days of princess diana. some credit the kate effect for the swell in popularity. the photogenic new addition who's as comfortable on the red carpet as off. what's clear is that it's having an effect on the rest of the family, too. prince charles doing an impromptu weather forecast on tv? >> it will be cold wet and windy across scotland. >> reporter: then trying his hand at deejaying? we'll see if the fresh prince of buckingham palace gets busy at his mother's jubilee party, which brings us to her majesty. especially this week it's all about the queen's 60 years on the throne. will and kate may be the shining stars but in the days ahead they'll play a supporting role. >> certainly helps when you have young blood coming in weddings that sense of renewal,
8:33 am
resurgence resurgence. >> reporter: the country is already in the grips of jubilee fever. even the portraits are larger than life, much larger than life in this case. there's one hanging on the banks of the river thames. it's bigger than a football field. it's 110 meters by 70 meters weighs 2 tons. it will serve as backdrop for a flotilla headed down the thames. 1,000 ships all led by her majesty, the queen, next sunday. >> charlie d'agata in london, thank you. also joining us this morning from our london bureau is robert jobson, the author of qult"william and kate: the love story." good morning. >> good morning. >> is this new-found pop layer all will and kate in. >> i think to some extent. the wedding was an incredible success. everyone wanted to see her, particularly catherine in her dress, and this teamwork between the two of them.
8:34 am
william being diana's son, it has the diana effect too. they're a star couple but with the queen's jubilee coming up everyone has time to reflect on her. >> and now all the brits are apparently saying, at least some of them are saying they would rather see will take the crown over charles. of course, that can't legally happen. charles would have to give it up. any chance he would? >> i really don't think so. i mean the fact is, charles is the longest serving heir to the throne ever. but reality is william and kate will have a very serious role anyway. when prince charles does become king providing, of course he lives long enough. the reality is they will still be the star couple. they'll still be the couple to go around the world representing, if you like as great britain's ambassadors abroad. >> the queen had at times an icy relationship with diana. why is it she's warmed to kate in such a different way? >> i think the royal family particularly the queen as well has learned the lessons of the past. i think diana had a really tough
8:35 am
time and she was fighting against charles. he was obviously, committing an adulterous relationship which was difficult and i don't think people understood the problems diana embraced. they realize they have to embrace catherine to make sure she feels welcome. they're doing that going out on jobs with her and showing her they really care. >> is the public love affair sustainable? do you think it will last? >> i've been covering this for 20-odd years and it's a bit of a roller coaster ride. this is the high point. sometimes there's popularity when you have weddings, jubilees, babies that are born, that's great news for the royal family. but as long as they all stay faithful to each other and there's no scandals i think that this will be a good time for the monarchy. >> and no chinks in the kate armor yet. she's still performing beautifully, correct? >> absolutely. when i met her in canada a few weeks -- a few months ago she was in great form. she's a really lovely girl. i think she's there to support
8:36 am
the man she loves and prince william, and together they look a great couple. i think they're good news for the future of the british monarchy. >> thank you very much, sir. >> it's a pleasure. >> "cbs this morning's" coverage of the queen's jubilee begins on friday. erica hill will be reporting live from buckingham palace. she seems very happy about that red hat. >> erica hill? >> that is not erica hill. >> that is not erica hill. that is the queen of england. now here's lonnie quinn, who also wears a nice hat. >> that was a recollect of a red hat. she was looking beautiful. speaking of looking beautiful, a good looking sky over new york city. nice looking shot there. let's go to satellite and radar. northern tier of the country, disturbed weather there and for portions of montana and wyoming, worry talking snow today. look at this, a little spin right there. this is a story in and of itself. that's tropical storm beryl. you can zoom in tighter. it has the quintessential counterclockwise flow around it. what's so interesting, it's not

even officially hurricane season yet. this is our second named storm of the season which hasn't begun yet and the national hurricane center is predicted there will only be nine more name to go through this season. 2 to 4 inches of rainfall expected from charleston through savannah, orlando. we anticipate a landfall sometime late sunday night into early, early monday morning as a tropical storm. somewhere we think in northern florida around the jacksonville area. that's a quick look at one portion of the country. here's a closer look at the weather for your weekend. hope you make it a great holiday weekend. rebecca, over to you. coming up next if you are feeling down, your doctor may have the cure. we'll take a look at prescription vacations. you're watching "cbs this

"happy: simple steps for getting the most out of life." doctor, good morning. >> good to see you guys. >> a lot of people have this vacation guilt. is the problem getting worse? >> it's really an epidemic. if you look at the amount of unused vacation time in the u.s. it's growing every year which is surprisingly because so many people say vacation is important to them and we need vacation, even during tough economic times, but people are not using their vacation. in fact, americans get probably the least vacation in the world. about 14 days on average compared to france and uk which get 25 or 30 days. we still, even though we have much less vacation time we don't use it. >> seems like it would have to be important to your boss too, that you took vacation in order for to you do so. >> a lot of people don't take vacation time because they fear people are going to look at them as being slackers. that they are not people dedicated to their work. the truth about the matter is when you take vacation time, you tend to be more energetic when you return and studies show more productive. >> so, what do you do about this? the notion that a doctor can
8:43 am
prescribe vacation. is that true? is it possible? >> that's a great idea, if bosses would listen to a prescription for vacation time. in all seriousness, everyone benefits from vacation. i say all the time americans have it wrong. americans live to work. others work to live. and we have to change our mindset around why we -- why we go to work and the balance in life. we just don't have that balance. in the book i talk about actually how people are happier when they're taking more vacations and enjoying more me time. >> how much vacation? ideally. >> i think people should have three to four weeks of vacation. not just have it on paper but actually use their vacation. that's the problem. also, where do you go for vacation? i for example would like to go overseas and domestically choose a vacation spot that's going to combine not only things for your children if you have children, but also for adults. we have great places las vegas, for example s a place i like to go. why? because there's adult entertainment and things for kids to do shows. choose a place that's fun for the entire family. >> what about when you come back from vacation and you have to either go through tsa or a bunch
8:44 am
of traffic to get back. does that undermine what you are trying to accomplish in the first place? >> that's interesting. the key is that yes, that takes away some of that happiness you just discovered. guess what? it's at a discount. you still are tremendously happy about what has just transpired. >> are you an advocate of the active vacation where you can say sometimes a vacation felt like work, where you're running all over the place or -- >> you need a day off when you come home from vacation? >> when i first started doing serious vacations my brother would say, we're too busy on vacations. i realize is that you need to have time to do absolutely nothing. so, i schedule what we want to see in a particular day. three things. that's it. you can't see everything in one vacation. you take your time. >> you make us happy. dr. ian smith, thank you. >> thanks. >> for more tips on how to make the most on vacation go to our partner in health webmd.com and search vacations. coming up next it is a bit of a question we're posing right here. why a male boss according to a

8:49 am
in marriages where their wives don't work or only work part time have an attitude they bring into the workplace, which says women are not as good as men to be leaders. >> i saw some bullet points out of the survey. they think the workplace runs less moothly with women they view female dequalified for promotion. >> it says less smoothly. the organization operates less smoothly. to those men it means you can't have a conversation about disagreements. it means my way or the highway. imbedded into that male centric viewpoint they hold smooth means easy for me to get my results. >> men are just awful. >> i mean look, i love men, too. >> thank you for taking the fall for all of them jeff. >> i'm outvoted i may as well. the difference though between a man whose wife stays at home verse a wife who works, is what? >> is that they really believe
8:50 am
most of the decisions they make they drive. again, my way ort highway. and they don't encourage a woman to have a different point of view, to push back, to think on her feet to take charge and be as assertive. a lot of times these men in the workplace, when a man stands up and says i want to take charge of this project, they may see that as aggressive rather than assertive behavior and gets them nervous. it threatens a part of their brain that says watch out, this might somewhere where you have to have threats and fight with that person. >> i'm looking at this research. it says men are unlikely to change their mind unless their marital structures change. that is saying in the workplace if you feel you're dealing with this, you can't make -- you can't independently as a female, make changes to what you're doing to change that relationship. >> first of all, i think that comment is radical. in other words, men are not going to get divorced and remarried and have a woman that's working. that doesn't make any sense. but the marriage at work is like marriage at home. it's a different type of marriage and they have to begin to think this is an important marriage where they have to change the rules of engagement

9:16 am
live with. if we look at the dog's behavior, trace it back it's always something that stems from the owner. >> tell me what you do on this show. by the way, you come from an unusual background. you did stand-up comedy. >> yeah. >> and then you say dogs found you. how did that happen and now what are you doing? >> i started -- i was doing personal training about ten -- about -- i was doing that for about seven years. and that was a great way for me to understand just the way people tick. i realized a lot of times in helping people get over their physical issues, you had to tackle the emotional part first. if someone was suffering from obesity, it wasn't so much about teaching them how to get on the treadmill but figuring out what was going on before that. so, i was doing that during the day. and then at night i was doing stand-up comedy. i get home at 4:00 in the morning. feeling kind of empty. nothing's on but those depressing animal commercials. so, next thing i know there's two rescue dogs and two rescue cats in my house and it just started from there. and i think that all of the stuff i learned in personal training and how to relate to
9:17 am
people carried right over into working with people with dogs. and also the stand-up comedy is super helpful because people call me with problems and so they're not in the best of mood when i come over. if i could provide a little levity and make it light-hearted and fun, it makes the session go so much better and makes them see training their dog isn't an arduous task. it will be something rewarding and fulfilling. that's the whole point in getting dogs in the first place, right? >> you get that message across in your show. what's the number one mistake you think people make with their dogs? >> i think they communicate the behaviors they don't want. >> so they reinforced the negative as opposed to -- >> yeah i think so. something so simple in new york is the door bell. the door bell rings, the dog starts barking like crazy. what does the owner do? stop, stop don't don't don't. the owner is doing exactly -- >> shouting match. >> right. what they don't want the dog to do. the door bell signifies mutual barking. i teach them by showing them
9:18 am
what they want them to do and then goes easy peasy from there. >> more complicated -- >> some new york owners can be. >> you are in new york. >> yes. you should be paid as a psychologist or a psychotherapist. >> you should be talking to my agent, sir. >> how many dogs do you have? >> i don't know. that's a good question. >> what does that mean? >> well, for instance buster he's been -- his mom's been a client of mine for about seven years, so he spends half his time with me half his time with her. i have two main pit bulls that live with me. my client's dogs are on a constant rotation in and out. if you ask whose dog that is, they'll say, mine and justin's dog. >> thank you so much. the show -- >> "dogs in the city". >> premieres? >> wednesday. >> wednesday, may 30 cbs. thank you. >> thank you so much. it is called the ivy league hustle. ♪ you wonder why i can float so free ♪

9:34 am
we wore purple to honor you. and you don't have purple on. >> if you wear it all the time then it's an affectation. >> you keep people writing like your writing. >> i have a purple pen. >> you say you're not a sports writer. someone who writes about sports. why is that distinction important to you? >> i think it's important because, first of all, the name sports writer has a certain connotation that some people don't like. you immediately think of hack. somebody who uses strange language and who's only covering games. and if you're writing about sports, you're writing about larger universe the people, about issues. under the umbrella of sports i've written about every human emotion, death to religion to sex, to everything that a person lives. i've been very lucky. >> you started at "sports illustrated" back in 1962. >> yes. >> what was that like?
9:35 am
>> well, i was a kid then. i'm an old man now. but i was a kid then. it was at a time -- david said it was the golden age of magazines, and it was. i'm learning at the feet of these giants. it was before television. before espn completely dominated sports. when "sports illustrated" was the biggest giant on the block. and it was an extraordinary experience. you had fabulous access. i always tell young writers, they don't believe me, that i can remember after an nba series being alone with jerry west in the laker locker room for 10 15 minutes, walking across the way and being with bill russell for 10 or 15 minutes. you couldn't even get that kind of an interview anymore. >> when you were sitting in first class seats in planes and players were back in coach. >> yes, yes. >> respect back then. >> honest to god. i can remember john and the celtics are flying in the back, and he said, aren't you going to interview me? i said you can't stay up here john.
9:36 am
hi to go to the back of the coach to interview the guy who was on the all-star team. >> i know you're reluctant to say what your favorite sport is but do you have a sport you really enjoyed writing about? >> oh no. writing doesn't make any difference. i'll tell you this. the best sports to write about, and i'm not being facetious, are those with the fewest players and the least clothes. >> the least -- >> no that's why they keep making boxing movies even though nobody goes to see boxing. >> i would have gone with swimming at that point. >> well, that would be -- well there's eight people in a race. you want the fewest. the worst sport to write about is football. the players are all masked there's so many of them. >> you mention football. can we talk about concussions right now. how fundamentally has that issue changed the game and how much will it change the game moving forward? >> you've already got like 2 million less kids playing football than just a few years ago. everybody talks now about concussions as they relate to the nfl. because a lot of players are
9:37 am
suing. of course, the nfl is so popular. but i think the big issue is further down the line. parents, more and more parents are saying, i don't want my kid to play football. so, we've got this dichotomy of the most popular sport in america in which is becoming a gladiator sport, in which middle classes are fewer and fewer middle class kids are going to be allowed to play football. i think the concussion is a very serious issue. and it's only going to become larger. >> horse racing triple crown winner? belmont coming up. does i'll have another do it? >> he can do it but ice got good competition. urban rags the earlier favorite of the kentucky derby will be there. and nobody ever knows whether a horse can go a mile and a half. because they never have done it before. so, you're in unknown territory. the great thing about the triple crown is just getting a horse to
9:38 am
vie for the triple crown at the belmont. whether he wins or not -- i'm not sure it's good to keep the curse going. people keep saying oh it's been 34 years, 35 years. if it was last year, who cares? yes, he looks like a very good horse and he has a very good chance. >> frank deford thank you. >> thank you. it's called the greatest summer of movies ever. >> e.t., home phone. >> e.t., phone home. >> we're looking back at the blockbusters of 1982 next. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." and there's lots of cool stuff happening with progressive mobile. great! tyler here will show you everything. check out our new mobile app. now you can use your phone to scan your car's vin or take a picture of your license.

9:43 am
think, that pretentious pointy headed critics like me and the mass audience agreed on everything. i mean -- well almost everything. not "rocky iii" but, i mean it was -- it was the last time where you had blockbusters that were personal, that was personal film making. and they weren't sort of machine tooled, full of cgi which makes miracles cheap. it was wonderful, exhilarating summer. >> why can't hollywood do that these days? it seems like it has to be the massive blockbuster, devoid of personality or the indie film. you think it's split around '82 or after? >> pretty much when the corporations and marketing people got in. it's a little cliche but the fact is they will bring in -- bring in eight screen writers to punch up the scripts. the director will be in a sense enslaved by the studio executives, who some of them are smart. most of them don't know what they're doing. so what you get -- movies are kind of the same now. and cgi really depersonalizes a
9:44 am
lot of the effects. if you see e.t. poltergeist the thing, they are beautifully handcrafted effects in these movies. >> steven spielberg's e.t. what a wonderful film. >> one of his masterpieces. so personal will a lonely young boy, searching for a signing of a benevolent universe that's going to bring people together in a way suburban live doesn't. just a gorgeous gorgeous film. again, the great critic pauline kale said, it cleared all the bad thoughts out of your head. >> spielberg story boarded "poltergeist". >> and that put the bad thoughts in your head. that was the other side of suburban, built on native american grave yards and families ripped apart by super natural forces that sort of had these zones of horribleness inside their beautiful suburban houses. i mean it's still a terrifying
9:45 am
film. >> and then "star trek 2," this fantastic -- >> khan! >> i want to be able to do that. >> a sci-fi thriller but it's about people and it's a story, right? >> yes. after the first "star trek" movie movie, this was a bummer. they got nicholas meyer brought ricardo with his giant pecs. it was fun. tragic. i think he single-handedly brought back the star check franchise when franchise, back in the day we only used with burger king. that's another problem these days. no one thought of movies as a franchise. >> and shatner was so good. >> he made fun of himself, which the guy never does he's so pompous. he was self-deprecating modest gave space to all the other actors. it was a beautiful thing. it's never happened again. >> we have to get to "rocky iii"
