tv CBS Evening News With Scott Pelley CBS November 30, 2016 6:30pm-7:01pm EST
? ? my favorite part about being a dad is just to see their faces in the morning when i wake them up. the first thing you think about is your wife and your kids and your family. you think about what life would be like for them, without you. so i had surgery locally, and it came back after my follow up that i needed a second surgery. and that's when i said i need a second opinion. from the moment i walked through the doors, they greet you, they're smiling and i love the fact that they included me in the whole process and asked me what i wanted to do. it makes you feel like you're part of the family. rod came in with ah, pretty advanced cancer and i remember thinking, he's just like me, he's like my twin. we're almost the same age, the same height- he's much more athletic- but almost the same life circumstances as far as having kids and raising a family, he just happens to have cancer.
radiation and surgery in order to shrink the tumor, so that the surgeon could take it out. i feel like this was the right way for me, and the right treatment for me, and the right process for me to go through. the diagnosis of cancer is one of those things that you want an answer now. we can do now here, and that is something that they appreciate because we match the sense of urgency that they have. if you or a loved one have been diagnosed with team of experts who only treat cancer, every stage, every day. at cancer treatment centers of america, it's not one thing we do, it's the only thing we do. call or visit cancercenter.com for more information. it's a new normal for me right now, makes you appreciate the little things in life. every moment counts. the evolution of cancer care is here.
i'll tell you, pop. you know, it's a... it's a good thing we don't live closer to the san andreas fault. it could have been a lot worse. how could it be worse? look at all my stuff, it's broken. walls all cracked. oh, no! look at my antique chair. my louis the 14th. hey, why don't you sit down over there, pop. try to compose yourself. yeah. 'cause these earthquakes is hard on a fella. i don't understand why people move out here. earthquakes on the coast. 120 degree temperature on the desert. you ought to change the name of california

with you, lamont. today is november 1, and it's extremely possible that november 6 is only 5 days away. excuse me, mr. wilson, i think what lamont meant was that the massive earthquake is unlikely to happen. oh, that's good! wow, thank you, lamont! you know, none of the american experts agree with the russian experts, either. what do they say? well, here's a newspaper. should be an article right here on the front page, reprinted courtesy of that fantastically respected publication, pravda. now, according to the 2 commie pinkos, the fault begins up here in the san fernando valley, cuts down the san diego freeway to the schlossen cut off, and it-- the schlossen cut off, do you know what that is? that's where you get out of your car and cut off your schlossen. here's johnny! here's knuckles!
