7:01 am
intelligence officials. >> outrage grows over u.s. surveillance secrets. >> germany and france are demanding talks with the u.s. by the end of the year saying they need to restore trust between the countries. >> don't think of us as an overly aggressive superpower. good listener. >> five people were hospitalized after the vortex malfunctioned at the north carolina state fair. >> two american lives are at stake as a group of pirates kidnapped and hold them hostage in a brazen attack. >> it would have been better to have more time. we would love to have had more time. >> they admit now the website was a rush job. >> a bulgarian woman is the mother of this little girl. >> brett favre, the highest profile nfl player to come out and speak about head trauma.
7:02 am
>> a little shocking to me that i couldn't remember playing youth soccer. >> some of the court documents will be released today. they contain possible charges against her parents. >> and the attorney general is on the offensive after photos appear with him at a party. ♪ o beautiful >> carolina wins on the road and goes to 4-3. >> no, i will not yield to this monkey court or whatever this is. >> this is not a monkey court. >> i'm not yielding. >> on "cbs this morning." >> here in new york city, starbucks is going to open a new store that only sells tea. they're going to have a revolving door, oh, it's just tea. >> this morning's "eye-opener" is presented by toyota, let's go
7:03 am
places. welcome to "cbs this morning." good morning, nora. >> good morning, charlie. >> we begin with this, washington's focus on the disastrous rollout of has turned into a blame game. contractors who created the website say there was poor coordination inside the obama administration and crucial testing began too late. they testified before congress on thursday. republicans say they're worried that new problems lie ahead. democrats accuse the gop of playing politics. >> i'm also concerned about what happens next. will enrollment glitches become provider payment glitches? >> the republicans don't have clean hands coming here. their effort obviously isn't to make this better but to use the website and the glitches as an excuse to defund or repeal obama care. >> this morning, we're learning about other potentially serious
7:04 am
problems. cbs has confirmed an emerging trend in states that have their own insurance exchanges. industry executives say this may threaten the entire structure of obama care. jan crawford is in washington with the story. >> reporter: good morning. a cbs news analysis shows in many of the 15 states with their own health exchanges, most of the people are signing up and enrolling in medicaid and not buying private insurance. sources tell cbs news, if that continues, it could cause real problems with the system. as the obama care website struggles, the administration is emphasizing state success. >> there's great demand at the state level as well because there are a bunch of states running their own marketplaces. >> reporter: but left unsaid in the president's remarks, the newly insured in some of those states are overwhelmingly low income people signing up for medicaid at no cost to them. matt is executive director of
7:05 am
the national association of medicaid directors. >> we're seeing a huge spike in terms of medicaid enrollments. >> reporter: he says the numbers have surprised him and state officials. cbs news has confirmed that in washington, more than 35,000 people are newly enrolled. 87% signed up for medicaid. in kentucky, out of 26,000 new enrollments, 82% are on medicaid. and in new york, of 37,000 enrollments, medicaid accounts for 64%. and there are similar stories across the country in nearly half of the states that run their own exchanges. medicaid experts say they're not sure why they're seeing those lopsided enrollment numbers but point out it's easier to enroll in medicaid than private insurance. coverage provided by the new law is said to have offer many options. >> either the private insurance
7:06 am
enrollments come up somewhere around the expected amount or there's going to be a problem. >> reporter: but a former medicaid director said the numbers are causing concern in the insurance industry, which needs healthy adults to buy private insurance in large numbers for the system to work. >> you need a volume and you need a mix of people that are healthy as well as high users in private insurance in order to have it be sustainable. >> reporter: the administration said it expected to see these high medicaid enrollment numbers because the law expands the number of low income people covered under medicaid and supporters say it shows the high demand. but sources say if it doesn't turn around and more healthy people buy insurance, the whole system may not work. >> great reporting, jan, thank you. president obama signed the affordable care act into law in 2010. since then, he's tried to reassure americans who already have health insurance. >> if you like your insurance plan, you will keep it. no one will be able to take that
7:07 am
away from you. it hasn't happened yet. it won't happen in the future. >> but it appears that's not happening the way the president explained it. the health care law raises standards for insurance policies. so now insurers are canceling coverage for hundreds of thousands of americans, forcing them to buy new policies. in los angeles, natalie willis says her insurance has gotten worse and more expensive. >> before, i had a plan that -- i had a $1,500 deductible. i paid $199 a month. the most similar plan i have available to me would be $278 a month, my deductible would be $6,500. and my coverage would only be 70% after that. the obama administration is trying to contain a new diplomatic crisis this morning. american officials are warning foreign governments their secret
7:08 am
cooperation with the united states could be exposed. intelligence operation with these countries are spelled out in documents leaked out by edward snowden. the news that americans may have spied on world leaders is threatening relationships with allies. elizabeth palmer is in london outside the houses of parliament. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. these are part of that continuing drip-drip of damaging information that came from the computer of edward snowden. he's at the moment hiding in russia. but the new revelations have gotten the whole of europe in an uproar. behind the professional smiles of european leaders arriving at their summit meeting in brussels, there's widespread outrage, not only because some of their private cell phone calls may have been tapped by american security services but that their phone numbers may have been handed over by u.s. diplomats. germany's chancellor, angela merkel, who's famously glued to her phone became the center of the allegations.
7:09 am
and the white house quickly offered up assurances. >> the president spoke with chancellor merkel, reassured her the united states is not and will not monitor the chancellor's communications. >> reporter: but what he didn't and wouldn't say was that the u.s. hadn't monitored her phone in the past. merkel told reporters this morning that germany and the united states had to work together to find a framework for future cooperation. france's president francois hollande whose phone may also have been monitored said america's spying on europe's political leaders must stop. in comments made as he arrived for this morning's talks, hollande said what's at stake is preserving our relations with the united states and trust has to be restored. but it's going to take a while. meanwhile, leaders like belgium's prime minister have to get used to the idea that while bystanders may not be able to hear what they're saying, uncle sam can.
7:10 am
we've just heard that those direct talks may begin on monday. the eu, the european union, has announced they'll send a group of lawmakers to washington to meet with u.s. officials to discuss what comes next, including perhaps some sort of legal reaction. charlie, nora? >> very interesting. elizabeth, thank you. rebel forces in nigeria say they're talking this morning with the pirates who kidnapped two american sailors off the coast of west africa. the rebels say they can ensure the hostages' safety. margaret brennan is at the state department this morning. >> reporter: good morning. a militant group that calls itself the movement for the emancipation of the niger delta says it's in contact with the pirates who captured the two americans off of brass, nigeria. the fbi and the state department are coordinating the emergency response through the u.s. embassy there. the two americans were working on this u.s. flag commercial oil
7:11 am
supply ship off the coast of nigeria, when pirates attacked and kidnapped them before releasing the 11 other crew members. it is not clear where they took the hostages. one the ship's captain, the other an engineer. the fbi is investigating. >> we are seeking additional information so that we can contribute to the safe resolution of the situation. our principal concern now is the safe return of two american citizens. >> reporter: pirate attacks onts west coast of africa have surged by a third this year, in part because it is an oil-rich region where ships move slowly and carry valuable cargo. unfortunately for the two hostages, foreign navies do not patrol the dangerous waters off nigeria. that type of international coordination off east africa has led to a significant drop in piracy. attacks by somali pirates are down 80% over the past two years, according to navy estimates. ships now speed through the area
7:12 am
with armed private security guards to dodge hijackers. robert mcfadden oversaw counterintelligence for the u.s. navy. >> these are straight criminal enterprises where it's all about the money. it's not a political statement. it doesn't have anything to do with terrorism. it's about the money. >> reporter: the nigerian navy says it is taking action. but they haven't asked the pentagon for help. there's no rescue operation under way. the closest u.s. marine response unit is in spain. so, frankly, at this point the hostages' best chance at being rescued may be for their employers to pay ransom. >> margaret brennan, thanks. we've learned in the last few minutes that dna tests confirmed a bulgarian woman is the mother of maria. authorities launched an international search to find her parents. the birth mother says she delivered maria four years ago in greece, then gave her away
7:13 am
because she was too poor to care for her. authorities will make it their inspection of an amusement ride after a frightening accident. five riders were thrown off the ride. leila is at the state fairgrounds. >> reporter: good morning. the vortex is a thrill ride. it spins, it lifts and flips its riders upside down all at the same ime and usually does so without a problem. but last night, something went wrong. this is amateur video of the vortex taken minutes before the accident at the north carolina state fair. around 9:15 last night, officials say the vortex malfunctioned after coming to a stop and unexpectedly starting up again, throwing passengers from the ride as they were trying to get off. five were hurt in the accident, two critically. >> this has shaken all of us a little bit. we definitely have these folks in our thoughts and prayers
7:14 am
tonight. >> reporter: witnesses say several people appeared to have been knocked unconscious. emergency responders transported the injured riders to local hospitals and police have promised a full investigation. >> the rides are to be expected three times daily. and that is something that they will be looking at as part of the investigation to ensure that the ride did have its three daily inspections. >> reporter: the ages of the injured riders vary from 14 to 39. the identities have not been released. despite the very scary scene here last night, they still plan to open the fair today. charlie, nora? >> thank you. this morning, workers in newtown, connecticut, are starting to tear down sandy hook elementary school. contractors are being asked to remove every trace of the school before a new one is built on the site. crews will melt every piece of metal so nothing can be taken as a souvenir. a gunman opened fire there last december killing 20 children and
7:15 am
six adults. concussions on the playing field may be taking a toll on another player. brett favre revealed he's scared to suit up. james brown is host of the nfl today for cbs sports. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. favre's toughness on the football field was legendary and he was often offered to as a linebacker playing quarterback. no doubt he took great pride in being a hard-nosed ball player. but it also made him a very easy target. >> all day, brett favre has been taking a pounding. >> reporter: for 20 years, brett favre took more than his fair share of hits in the nfl, including a career-ending shot that left him unconscious. >> i don't know how many of these hits favre has taken this year. >> reporter: in a radio interview thursday, the 44-year-old admitted he now fears he's paying the price for all those hits, serious memory
7:16 am
loss. >> i don't remember my daughter playing soccer -- youth soccer one summer. i don't remember that. >> reporter: favre played in a record 297 regular season games in a row. but set a more ominous mark -- sacked 525 times, suffering an unknown number of concussions. >> when i first started playing the first ten years, they didn't keep a log like they do now. >> reporter: dr. robert gladder says favre's symptoms are typical. >> often the ct scans or the initial scans we do after a suspected head injury which is severe may be normal but there's functional changes, changes involving memory. >> reporter: just this year, the nfl agreed to pay out $765 million in a landmark concussion settlement with players. critics argue the league got off easy. but last month on "cbs this morning," commissioner roger goodell fired back. >> what we were able to do was all compromise on our positions.
7:17 am
there was no admission of guilt. there was no recognition that anything was caused by football. but the reality is, we want to help our players. >> reporter: favre played the majority of his career before the rules protected quarterbacks and before head-to-head hits were outlawed. >> i think after 20 years, god only knows the toll that will be taken as time goes by. >> reporter: brett favre said that he considered having tests done on his brain to look for any signs of concussions but he hasn't done that yet because he says even if doctors do find something, there isn't much in terms of treatment. >> what are other players telling you? >> reporter: while this fraternity of ex-players oftentimes joke about things because nothing is sacred in the locker room, in light of the new research and a number of players saying the same things, they're very concerned. and no one knows the ex-players better than their wives.
7:18 am
and many wives are most concerned and many praying fervently because they are seeing subtle changes. >> thank you. time to show you some of this morning's headlines. "the washington post" says the fda is recommending tighter restrictions for a common painkiller. hydrocodone is found in drugs like vicodin under the proposed rule change, doctors would not be allowed to call in a prescription. patients would get fewer refills. the change must be approved by the department of health and human services and the d.e.a. twitter's ipo will offer stock at $17 to $20 a share. that would put the company's value at $11 billion. twitter hopes to raise nearly $1.5 billion by going public. a jury found toyota liable in a suddenly acceleration case in a case in 2007 after a camry unexpected accelerated. the verdict requires toyota to pay $3 million to the survivor

politics. and enjoy the mood lighting and the relaxing atmosphere. this is a very different tsa checkpoint. we'll go to one of america's largest airports and see what passengers think of this experiment. foreign intelligence services are on alert over a new disclosure from edward snowden. documents leaked by the fugitive security contractor show the nsa monitored phone calls of 35 world leaders. american officials are warning other governments that the snowden leaks could reveal their intelligence operations. and this morning in "usa today," a white house homeland security aide says the obama administration is reviewing its surveillance policies. senior correspondent john miller is a former deputy director of national intelligence. he spoke with a top cia official giving his first-ever television interview to "60 minutes." good morning. >> good morning. >> what can you tell us about what our government was doing tapping 35 leaders? >> well, nothing. but i can tell you this from my
7:32 am
experience in government, all governments do this. we have to kind of get past the moment from the movie in "casablanca." but one of the people we talked about that is mike morrell. recently retired as the number two man at the cia after 33 years. he was part of the damage assessment in the nsa -- that the nsa initiated to gauge the impact of snowden's actions. and he says the damage that was done here is historic. >> i do not believe he is a whistle-blower. i do not believe he is a hero. i think he has betrayed his country. >> how serious is hit is that to national security? >> the most serious compromise of classified information in the history of the u.s. intelligence community. >> because of the amount of it or the type? >> the amount and the type. >> but of the hundreds of pages of nsa document that is snowden has leaked, morrell pointed to one in particular that has caused a great deal of damage to
7:33 am
u.s. intelligence. it's a copy of the secret document the cia calls its black budget. what value would to have to an adversary? >> the real damage of leaking that document was that certainly they could focus their counterintelligence efforts on those places where we're being successful and not have to worry as much about those places where we're not being successful. >> reporter: kind of like handing over the playbook to the other team? >> uh-huh. >> reporter: he went first to hong kong and then to russia. do you think that china and russia now have access to all or much of that material? >> i think we have to assume that any material that mr. snowden had with him when he was in hong kong and now that he is in russia has been compromised. i think we have to assume that. what edward snowden did has put americans at greater risk because terrorists learn from leaks. and they will be more careful.
7:34 am
and we will not get the intelligence we would have gotten otherwise. >> morrell says that despite the significant problems snowden has caused for national security, those issues can be mitigated but they cannot be made zero, especially in a time when this isn't about somebody stealing a document. you go into a computer, you can steal an entire database. >> this is sort of becoming even bigger now, the suggestion that as was put out that in one case, an american official provided the nsa can 200 phone numbers tied to 35 world leaders. germany's angela merkel is furious about this, as are other european leaders. let me ask you this, is there an assumption that some people are off limits, heads of state, like leaders of germany and france? >> there is only one deal in the intelligence community. and that is between great britain and the commonwealth nations which is the u.s., great britain, australia, new zealand,
7:35 am
canada have an agreement not to spy on each other and they share most information. there are deals with -- you may recall that france a few years ago tried to get in on that deal and said, we'd like to join, we won't spy on you, you won't spy on us. that just didn't happen. so every country in the world has a signals intelligence capability that they use against every other country that they can. a lot of the comments we're seeing from world leaders to some degree is for public consumption, which is now that it's been disclosed, i better act outraged and just hope what we do isn't disclosed. but i don't think any intelligence agency in another country could stand a test like this. >> what's happening inside government today as they review the damage from all of this? >> two things. one, they have to figure out vis-a-vis the exposure of tactics and techniques, what the bad guys are already doing differently, terrorists, spies,
7:36 am
nuclear proliferatorses to avoid that. they've got to work their way around that. that's on the operational side. on the diplomatic side, as nora pointed out, two things they have to do. they have to go to friends who work with us and share their signals intelligence and say, look, it's coming out that we're working together. that may make things uncomfortable with your friends. and, two, they have to go to friends of ours where we've intercepted communications and say, look, sorry that happened and we're still friends, right? >> thank you, john. you can see john's entire interview with mike morrell on "60 minutes" this sunday night here on cbs. looking for a calm and comfortable place to relax? how about this airport security checkpoint? you heard right. we'll show you an experiment to fight stress and try and make traveling a bit easier. that's next on "cbs this morning." head on on "cbs this

this morning, maryland's attorney general is defending himself against charges that he ignored a crime. the incident threatens to affect his political future. jeff is in baltimore. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, nora. douglas gantzler is a democrat running for governor here in maryland. every week it seems there's some sort of scandal that shakes this race up. this photo taken at a house party over the past summer shows gubernatorial candidate gantsler pushing his way through the crowd. his critics are bouncing accusing maryland's top law enforcement official of doing nothing to stop it. >> what i could have done wes to investigate whether there was drinking going on and then take action on that. for that, i probably should have
7:42 am
done that. in hindsight certainly. >> reporter: he claims he didn't know the teenagers were drinking alcohol. but this is a lasting image he is now trying to explain. in an interview with "the baltimore sun" on wednesday, he is quoted as saying, do i have any moral authority over other people's children at a beach week in another state? i say no. but on thursday, he had another view of the situation. >> do i have a moral obligation over kids? yes. that night, if i had seen anything that looked dangerous or risky or anybody in trouble or anybody in a bad situation, i would have done something about it. >> reporter: he's also trying to fight off other allegations that he ordered state troopers to speed through traffic by turning on lights and sirens. he denies the claims. in maryland politics, he is a familiar name. over the last two decades, he's been a prosecutor at the state and federal level. in 2002, he played a prominent role in the prosecution of d.c. sniper's john allen muhammad and
7:43 am
john lee malva. >> parents, you're the leading influence on your teen's decision not to drink. >> the kids were clearly having fun. he was clearly in the middle of that. >> reporter: ralph blackman is the ceo of century council, the group that created the psa. he says he was shocked to see the photo. >> i think you have a moral responsibility as an adult to make that right decision and to really be a positive influence. >> reporter: his opponent in the race for governor is the current lieutenant governor, also a democrat. his name is anthony brown. he's clearly trying to stay far away from this controversy. his campaign released a statement saying this is something that gantsler should address himself. gantsler says maybe he should have done more. we'll see if voters agree with

that when they go to the polls. most airline passengers are tell you security checkpoints are no fun. anna werner is at dallas-ft. worth airport. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this is what we're talking about. it's an airport security checkpoint, of course, but with some subtle differences that officials here hope will make for a better experience for travelers and for the airport itself. it's not your standard airport security checkpoint, to be sure. craving a little mood lighting for your wait in line? would it help to know how long your wait will really be? it's the new look at one dallas-ft. worth international check point where executives say it's all about a better checkpoint experience. jim is vice president of operations. why do you need all this?

>> the flying public has been begging for this. >> reporter: how so? >> these checkpoints are one of the biggest hassles customers face. they said, please do something. >> reporter: a hotel group and an advertising company helped foot the bill for this experimental project. the space is wider so people move through faster. x-ray tables are longer so bags don't back up and slow down screening. and passengers are noticing. >> it's more organized. >> this one went smoothly. >> reporter: airport officials say through-put capacity, how many passengers go through a checkpoint in an hour, is key. what are the consequences if people spend more time in security and less time out there? >> they will never enjoy their experience and they'll never have time to buy a beer or have a meal or buy a purse. >> reporter: you want people out there in the shops and the restaurants and the dining rooms? >> absolutely. >> reporter: 25% more passengers come through this checkpoint in an hour than at the airport's other checkpoints.
7:46 am
but it's not just about speed. airport research found a bad mood is bad for business. to make you feel better when it's time to reorganize your stuff, they'll even put you on the couch. >> this is nice. >> reporter: upset, stressed travelers are stingy travelers. >> we like happy travelers. >> reporter: after her new checkpoint experience, jackie said she was happy. do you feel less stressed? >> i do feel less stressed. >> reporter: will you spend more money? >> i'm hungry right now, so, yes,ly. >> reporter: this is a cooperative initiative between the airport, these companies and the tsa. one of the top complaints were travelers, of course, is sometimes the tsa employees themselves who they say are not so welcoming. so you might be saying, how do you fix that with this? turns out that the employees evidently like this checkpoint better, too. officials here say that some of the tsa employees have been applying to move to transfer

people with health problems. bob schieffer's with us. good morning. >> do you have some sense that the affordable care act may be dying a death of a thousand cuts because so much has gone wrong? >> well, there's going to be health insurance for people. i mean, it's the law and they'll get it done, but this thing is broken and they've got to fix it. you know, they're holding these briefings every day, but you you know when you have a briefing and somebody said did sec tear sebelius know about it and the briefer says next question. this has gone beyond talking points. the website doesn't work. i mean there's some people who say it would have taken five years to build a website like this and you should have tested it for a year. >> do you think they'll get it working, bob? they supposedly have the best and brightest minds working on it now. >> where were the best and the brightest minds when they built

8:05 am
anybody else involved, but what he also makes clear is the fbi and the cia really misled the commission. both of these agencies were so afraid that they might be blamed because they knew of oswald and they had been watching him in mexico city. and they just wanted to make sure their agencies weren't blamed. they didn't play straight with the warren commission. >> but there were always questions about fidel castro. >> this is one of the interesting little tidbits in this book. it's a secret that has held for 50 years. the commission actually sent an investigator to the waters off cuba. they took him in a u.s. navy boat. he got on to a yacht. there was fidel castro. and castro had sent word that he wanted to talk to the commission. and this was thought to be so controversial, they didn't do it. anyway, the investigator gets off the boat, talks to castro,
8:06 am
they talk for three hours. castro says, as you expect, no way, no how did i have anything to do with it. it turns out -- to me, this is the most fascinating part of all -- that young investigator was william coleman who later became secretary of transportation in gerald ford's administration. >> even more interesting, he had met castro early in harlem. >> yes. they both liked music. and he had first met castro when castro apparently was on his honeymoon in harlem. they both loved jazz. and they came to know each other. they weren't friends. but that's why they decided it would be coleman to go and do it. >> you're really no stranger to scoops on this story. i remember learning on this actual broadcast that you were the reporter who had lee harvey oswald's mother in the car, that the telephone call came and you ended up driving her. did it surprise you -- i'm curious about that, but did it surprise you that 50 years later you're still learning something new? >> you know, it really doesn't. you know, people are still asking questions about lincoln's
8:07 am
assassination and about julius caesar's assassination. there are just all these questions that people have because oswald was never put on trial. i think a lot of this might have been put to rest had he been put on trial, but then this bizarre thing where this striptease joint operator jack ruby shoots him and thinks he'll become a national hero. of course, he didn't. he did enormous damage. >> you're in the car with lee harvey oswald's mother and you're a reporter. you pick up the phone -- >> i worked at the "ft. star telegram." it was total bedlam. i was on the city desk trying to help answer the phone. a woman says is there anybody there that can give me a ride to dallas? i said, lady, we're not running a taxi here. besides the president's been shot. she said, yes, i just heard on the radio. i think my son was the one they've arrested. always when young reporters come to me, they say, what advice, i
8:08 am
say answer the phone. when the phone rings, don't let it ring. and to this day i cannot let a phone ring more than one ring. my wife gets mad at me. look at the caller i.d. it's probably from a telemarketer. i can't help myself. >> i think that's good advice. i feel the same. thank you, bob schieffer. answer the phone. this sunday bob interviews democratic senator jeanne shaheen and republican congressman darrell issa. you can watch "face the nation" right here on cbs. ringo starr is looking back on his days with the beatles. it includes one picture he wondered about for nearly half a century. we tracked down one of the people who was in that photo. >> when the fab four stepped off that plane in new york in 1964, beatlemania arrived in america. ♪ i want to hold your hand
8:09 am
>> but it wasn't just beatles fans that were armed with cameras. did you guys all have cameras? >> we all had camera, a drink and a cigarette. those were the three things we all carried all the time. >> ringo starr became the band's unofficial photographer, capturing rarely seen private moments. ringo has compiled them into a new book called "photograph." the biggest of all boy bands was always on the move. and so was ringo's camera. ♪ it's been a hard day's night >> and this shot of six american teenagers, there's one there in the shadows, has been something of a magical mystery for nearly 50 years. the new book has prompted a search for those kids in the car. >> they were in that car, and here's our hero who -- >> this is the guy you're wondering about? >> yeah, the mystery man. they came to the airport, i believe, now, to see us. and guess what? they really saw us. and we saw them.
8:10 am
>> in the photo, i'm in the backseat kind of leaning on the back window. >> that's charlie schwartz. he was 17 and skipped school with his friends to see the beatles arrive at jfk. they couldn't get in, so they headed home. >> what we thought was a funeral procession was creeping up on us, all these limousines with headlights on and it turns out to be the beatles. >> they put the windows down. and hey. i got my camera, i'll take them. >> then all of a sudden ringo pulls up and slides his windows down and started snapping all these pictures. >> the mystery man was matt blender, he recently passed away. charlie schwartz is now 67 living in california. he saw ringo's photo of him for first time this week. >> it was o so surreal. i couldn't believe it. >> and a long of winding road of memories. for "cbs this morning" ben tracy, los angeles.

something about it. there's another category of comet that comes in from the depth of space. if you discover one of those, you only get three months' warning. >> what would you do and what would it cost? >> the cost, who knows? certainly the most expensive space mission there ever was. so more than just going to the moon. you don't want to make a mistake. you don't want to go there and have it not work. and there's some people who say, let's blow the sucker out of the sky. those folks that want to blow stuff up. the problem with blowing up an asteroid, while we're really good at blowing things up, we're less good at knowing where the pieces fall afterwards. you don't want to take one asteroid and turn it into two. the odds on favorite is the event to deflect an asteroid out of harm's way, it still lives to hurt you another day, but once you can start maneuvering where thingsn s are in the solar syst

you're done. >> can we talk about "gravity" a moment, the film? >> you had to go there. >> because we just go to see a great movie, i'm eating my popcorn, then i read your review about all the things that go wrong, picking it all apart. >> all i did was -- >> why did you do that? >> i was just -- i had 12 tweets the day after i saw the show. and i thought they were fun and cute.

8:37 am
your -- >> no, i'm out of here. no. no, i have a day job. which is director of the hayden planetarium. >> why are you here? >> no, no, just briefly. we have astronauts coming at the hayden planetarium for a press conference this morning to discuss how the international community of countries would assemble and figure out how to fund such a mission. and if i picked a number, i don't know, a hundred billion dollars, if i had to pick a number, 50 billion. >> that's doable. >> it is, but somebody has to organize it. it's what's possible in principle and in practice practice requires a political agreement. plus we're opening a space show. the dark universe. >> always good to see you. i hope this is fun for you. neil degrasse tyson, we thank you. >> all right. >> josh charles is coming up next. a smart aleck answer on "sports

that if that family is moved into safe, clean affordable housing, places that have access to great school systems, access to jobs and multiple transportation modes then the neighborhood begins to thrive and then really really take off. the oxygen of community redevelopment is financing. and all this rebuilding that happened could not have happened without organizations like citi. citi has formed a partnership with our company so that we can take all the lessons from the revitalization of urban america to other cities. so we are now working in chicago and in washington, dc and newark. it's amazing how important safe, affordable housing is to the future of our society. it's you as a teenager, josh charles appeared in the oscar winning film "dead poet society."

8:44 am
you're just looking to deepen it, get deeper in your characters, deeper into the stories. and i just marvel at the writers being able to do that this year. we're five years in, as gayle said, sometimes shows you can see them kind of coasting a little bit. i think this year the story lines have reinvigorated them, reinvigorated the cast and that's all you want as an actor. you want to dive deeper and that's what these story lines do. this is going to take the show to a different place and there's a focusing on our core people and the civil war between them has been a really intense experience for all of us but also funny at times too. >> yes, it is. and passion. >> charlie doesn't believe me. >> no, i do. i do. i was actually thinking about the writing. at the very moment you looked at me i was thinking about the writing and it's so good. >> it really is. >> somebody said this, charlie you'll like this, but if you're a fan of "breaking bad" and we are at this table, if you want great story telling, powerful characters and great writing,
