to keep san francisco safe. recall chesa boudin now. captioning made possible by johnson & johnson, committed to improving health for everyone, everywhere. ♪♪ [trumpet] ♪♪ >> pauley: good morning. happy mother's day. i'm jane pauley, and this is sunday morning. even in a city infamous for leaks, last monday night's release of a draft supreme court opinion reversing roe vs. wade was a boom shell. the breach at the nation's highest court was all but
unprecedented, its motivation still unknown. while a final decision on the landmark abortion ruling isn't expected for several weeks, the battle lines have been drawn. this morning we have two reports, beginning with martha teichner. [yelling] >> our right or not! >> reporter: the likely end of roe vs. wade. in illinois and missouri, it is not battle over. it's battle on. i'll take you there this sunday morning. and then...jim axelrod will look at what overturninging roe means for the supreme court and all of us, coming up. >> pauley: rita braver is on broadway this morning, sharing some laughs with the all-star cast of its newest comedy, potus. >> guys, you're not going anywhere. >> who is going to stop
me, marge, you? >> yes. >> reporter: when you see vanessa williams headlining a gleeful cast of women, directed by five-time tony award winner susan stroman, you might be surprised to learn who the writer is. this is your very first broadway show, and how old are you? >> i'm 28. >> reporter: pretty amazing, right? >> it's amazing. >> reporter: later on sunday morning, the women of potus. >> pauley: the legendary bob dylan has written hundreds of songs and been s lacy, johnnobel pri dickerson, tells us, will soon go on display in america's heartland. ♪ knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door ♪ >> reporter: thee days, bob dylan's home is his tour bus, but his attic is in tulsa. >> these are the magna
carta cart, if you will, of dylan's studies. ♪ like a rolling stone ♪ >> reporter: ahead on sunday morning, a first look at the archives of bob dylan. >> pauley: robert costa talks politics and more with the ultimate washington insider, david gergen. dr. jon lapook speaks with actor r ray romano and his former boss, phil rosenthal, about food and friendship. on the subject of food, elaine quijano tells us about an inspiring link between doughnuts and the american dream. and faith salie is celebrating the lincoln memorial 100 years on. gwyneth paltrow with gh. a horse tale from steve hartman and more on this sunday morning for the 8th of may, 2022. we'll be right back.
out-of-state corporations wrote an online sports betting plan they call "solutions for the homeless". really? the corporations take 90 percent of the profits. and using loopholes they wrote, they'd take even more. the corporations' own promotional costs, like free bets, taken from the homeless funds. and they'd get a refund on their $100 million license fee, taken from homeless funds, too. these guys didn't write a plan for the homeless.
they wrote it for themselves. this is elodia. she's a recording artist. 1 of 10 million people that comcast has connected to affordable internet in the last 10 years. and this is emmanuel, a future recording artist, and one of the millions of students we're connecting throughout the next 10. through projectup, comcast is committing $1 billion so millions more students, past... and present, can continue to get the tools they need to build a future of unlimited possibilities.

theha teichner on the abortion debate. [yelling] >> reporter: never mind the justice samuel alito's leaked majority opinion was a draft not a final decision. its impact was like a hurdlhurdled grenade. >> abortion is violence. >> reporter: one step and it ignited all of the pent-up passions surrounding the expected overturn of roe vs. wade after nearly 50 years. >> abortion is murder! >> reporter: the news was a shock but not a surprise. >> in 2019, we got a preview of what living in a post- roe result was roe resus going to look like. >> reporter: she is president and c.e.o. of
planned parenthood for the st. louis region in southwest missouri. in 2019, only last-minute court intervention kept the planned parenthood facility in st. louis open, the last abortion clinic in the state. >> my body, my choice! >> it was at that moment we started to be really strategic for planning for a future without abortion in the state of missouri. we built this 18,000 scare foot facility in secret. >> reporter: in fairview heights, just across the mississippi river from st. louis. in illinois, abortion laws are as liberal here as they are restrictive in missouri. last year it performed approximately 6,000 abortions. it is prepared to perform 14,000 a year going forward. >> so we are doing this not just for missouri patients, but for patients from across the midwest
and the south. >> reporter: if you want to see what a post-roe world will look like, this is it. just look at a map of the states where abortion will be legal, like illinois, and all those others, where it likely will not. a new kind of continental divide. in january, the fairview heights clinic opened this first in the nation regional logistics center. >> i heard the panic in your voice. it is okay. >> reporter: it provides patients money, transportation, lodging, whatever they say they need wherever they are. >> if you need any type of travel or ride -- >> reporter: kawanna shannon runs the center. i'm sure there are anti-abortion supporters who will say you're facilitating people killing their babies. >> i will tell you that i am sitting here every day facilitating a person's
right to choose what they want to do with their body. >> i dreamed of being a mom. and when i learned that some children don't even have the right to live it just shocked my conscience. it still does. >> reporter: equally passionate but on the op otherside, elated that the supreme court could actually overturn roe soon. >> we have a decision that 50 years ago was wrongly held, and the conservative pro-life movement has been working within the system to change that bad law since it was passed. >> reporter: mother of six, a lawyer, coleman is the face of her state's waiting in the wing's law banning abortion. roe gets overturned, and what happens? >> abortion will be illegal in the state of
missouri, except for the life of the mother. >> reporter: coleman has proposed legislation that goes further, targeting not the woman herself but any professional service provider anywhere who knowingly aids or abets someone from missouri getting an abortion, exactly the sort of services the fairview heights facility provides. >> i don't think if you live in missouri or if you live in new york your value as a person is any less. i would like to see us continue to try to fight this at a national level as well. >> reporter: according to a cbs news poll out today, more than six out of 10 americans want roe left in place. but if it does fall, as expected... >> [yelling] >> reporter: ...the battle over abortion shifts from the courts to the legislative arena at all levels of government. and both sides agree on this one thing: >> right now vote because
your life and your future actually depends on it. >> this is jim axelrod. the security fence surrounding the supreme court is all you need to see to understand the gravity of what unfolded in washington this past week. while the court may have decided a presidential election in the last quarter century and ruled on who could legally marry whom, the draft leaked monday night suggesting roe vs. wade could soon be overturned -- >> so republicans have been working towards thi day for decades. >> reporter: elicited an emotional intensity reaching even deeper and more broadly across the country. >> abortion is violence! >> if you ask most americans to m name a supreme court decision, the vast majority will say roe vs. wade. it is the only one that
has dominated presidential eections for decades. >> reporter: university of california davis law professor, mary ziegler. >> what is the legal reasoning underpinning the overturning of roe vs. wade? >> it comes down to the idea that the court says there are only a limited sub set of rights recognized in our constitution. those are ones that have been deeply rooted in our nation's tradition and history. [yelling] >> our right or not! >> reporter: which explains that intensity for so many wondering if one long-established protection is overturned, what is next? >> we don't know if this court is going to stop with reversing roe. we know there are some justices on the court who would like to reverse a whole variety of other decisions, from same-sex marriage to banning same-sex marriage. >> reporter: if somebody says to you relax, this isn't a slippery slope, what do you say to that? >> i would say if you had spoken to many americans
five years ago and said "roe vs. wade" would be overturned with amy coney barrett first decision on the court, they would say that is risky for a court whose reputation has already been damaged. and yet here we are. >> reporter: did you see this coming? > >> everyone could oversee it could be overturned with 4-5, but tho not that it would be leaked. the court's deliberations or the most sact sacrosanct process. >> reporter: for rosen, the leak and who did it, is no distraction to the main issues; it is a grave threat to how the courts work in private, so justices have room to recast and revise their opinions. >> there have been many
motives that have been pending around, but one is that after five justices voted to overturn roe vs. wade, chief justice roberts is now trying to convince some of them to change their mind and to join him in a more moderate opinion. the leaker is trying to make it harder for any swing justices to peel off and change their minds. >> and an appointment which could turn the supreme court to the right for years to come... >> reporter: wanting to end the court's highly partisan, for robert bork -- >> robert bork's america is a land in which women would be forced into back-alley abortions. >> reporter: he says the opinion would reflect consensus, favoring 8-1 decision so much more than 5-4. >> he said we have to be modest or we're going to run the risk of a legitimate threat to our
democracy. >> reporter: that's the opposite of where we find ourselves this sunday morning, with the court close to a sweeping decision that will overturn a protection that has been in place for half a century, one americans feel strongly about. >> the court has historically not been that untethered from what people tend to think, especially when the court is inserting itself intomorti tf lgbtq people, to voting rights to the regulation of climate change. the court is literally in every conversation we're having, and it operating in ways we haven't seen in the recent past. >> reporter: but as americans have learned in the past few years, the recent past is no longer the best guide to how we're function in the future. >> this will be something that professors of any kind of law will be talking about probably for more than 100 years from this conversation.

remarking on hendrix's remarkable cover version. steven jenkins is the center's director. >> here is the actual tambourine that inspired the song "tambourine man." >> reporter: he bought the archive in 2016 for an estimated 20 million, partly in hopes of drawing towdrtourism. the center is a tour. in 1962, mel and l lillian bailey were smart enough to turn on the tape recorder in their living room. ♪♪ ♪ it don't make no difference now ♪ >> reporter: one exhibit addresses dylan's famous decision to play electric guitar at the 1965 newport

interested in saying, huh, we got this guy figured out. because what is so wonderful about dylan, among much else, is the elusiveness. >> reporter: the elusiveness is the point: the center affirms dylan's long-held view that he is the last person to tell you what his songs mean. ♪♪ >> reporter: like all good art, we find meaning by wrestling with the words ourselves. meanwhile, bob dylan keeps moving on. ♪♪ >> announcer: this >> announcer: this portion of "sunday morning" is sponsored by centrum. nutrients... .and other key essential ...it's a tasty way to conquer your day. try centrum multi gummies.

>> pauley: from correspondent to elaine quijano now, a treat in every sense of the word. >> hi, how are you? what can i get for you? sprinkles? >> yes, ma'am. >> reporter: the mom and pop doughnut st stores that dot california strip malls, carry the same mouth-watering delights. but beyond the roads of chocolate and sprinkles lies a different kind of richness in the stories of the americans behind the counter. >> hi, come on in. >> reporter: roughly 80% of doughnut shops in california, that is well over a thousand, are owned by cambodian refugee families. >> soon the streets were choked with refugees. >> reporter: they arrived in america in the late 1970s and early '80s, seeking safety as
the c khmer rouge. millions escaped and settled in california and found work in doughnut shops. teresa owned b blinkie donuts. >> when e you get here, you don't speak the language, and they offer you a job. there weren't a lot of resources offered to refugees, so they how to figure out how to support each other. >> california has had a long history of doughnut culture. and it has become more famous, i would argue, in the last 40 years or so, and that's due to the cambodian refugees who
came in and expanded the doughnut culture here in southern california very greatly. >> reporter: it is fair to say it is part of american culture? >> absolutely. > reporter: a culture which now includes the pink doughnut box. decades ago cambodian owners bypassed the white boxes for cheaper pink boxes, which fit a dozen doughnuts p perfectly. it not only saved thousands of dollars, but it created an icon of sweetness. dorothy chow manages a doughnut supply company. the daughter of cambodian refugees, she grew up working in several of her parents' stores, and considers herself a doughnut kid. >> there were some days i worked 12, 13, 14-hour days, but now as i'm older, i can look back on it with pride, like i'm a part of this whole journey our parents have been on.
they came here with nothing. they needed all of the help they could with the doughnut shop, and we were there to the help them and support them whenever we could. >> reporter: the story is now being unboxed. phun hyunh is an artist to came to america as a refugee. >> a lot of the work are portraits. >> reporter: in her exhibit, "doughnut hole" in los angeles, she uses a pink doughnut box, instead of a white canvas, to capture the taste of the cambodian experience. >> it is not a canvas. it is a throw-away cardboard box. under the sweet of the doughnut is intergenerational trauma and pain. >> reporter: she focuses in large part of the second generation. she j juxtaposes images of
the kids to the adults they have become. >> it is only this generation born in the united states to tell their parents, look, we want to honor you. you never had the time to even think about what you've been through. and we want to take this time to honor your story because you didn't have the time to write about it. >> reporter: one of her portraits: dorothy chow. when you saw your portrait, what did you think? >> i -- i had a sense of pride. i think maybe for the first time i felt like growing up in america and maybe making sacrifices i did as a child was finally being seen. >> reporter: now, as an adult, dorothy herself sees things differently. like the pink boxes she once folded as a little girl. what do these doughnut boxes represent to you? >> these doughnut boxes are an example of resilience and a representation of the refugee experience here in america.

pizza. >> this is like the best pizza i ever had. >> you want another? >> hell, yes, i want more. >> it is everything i love about travel. how you mind literally gets changed. >> it's like they know how to live here, don't you think? don't you think it is kind of beautiful here? >> we know what happened in the episode, but what happened to you in real life? >> we stayed in italy and we flew to sicily to visit my wife's home town. so we spent a week in this little village in the mountainside. the stuff we did in that episode i was living in real life. >> we were in a car this big. they were feeding us from the food they grew. you know, it is just seeing goodness from people who don't look like you, sound like you. there is this common denominator that you realize people are good all over. >> so i see this happen to him, and i think, what if i could do this for other
people? >> reporter: rosenthal held on to the idea and started his travel and fod show in 2018. >> how hungry are you? >> i'll taste everything. >> i've got some goat noodles. >> i love goat. i think goat is the most underrated meat. >> reporter: do you ever ask a producer to taste something first? >> nope, i just jump in like an idiot. >> and when something is beautiful, i share it with everyone. that's also why i'm not 400 pounds. >> reporter: had is especially fond of a chef he met in thailand. >> it is a michelin-starred shack. unbelievable. a crab omelette, there is like a pound, pound and a half of crab. i think it is $50 for this omelette, and it's so friggin' delicious.
you would never see it in america because it is would be prohibited, $200 to $300 here. >> reporter: rosenthal has just finished a book published by simon & schuster to document his travel and the best recipes he has discovered. >> it is these artisans, these craftsmen, who take such care and pride. i is their national heritage, their personal family history that is in every bite of the food you're getting. and i swear to you, you can taste it. >> reporter: as for ray romano, in the decade since "everybody loves raymond," he has continued to act in comedies and dramas. >> i don't care whether you did it or not. that makes no difference to me. i'm here to defend you. >> reporter: and he just finished directing and starring in a drama called "somewhere in queens," which he also co-wrote, once again drawing on
memories from his family. >> do they yell and scream and are they loud? yeah. but there is that love underneath it. there is a bond that can't be broken. >> reporter: which perfectly describes ray ramadi's bond with rosenthal. >> it is humbling for me to go to dinner with him. when people come up for an autograph, it is for this guy now. >> you're crazy. my a1c wasn't at goal, now i'm down with rybelsus®. mom's a1c is down with rybelsus®.

[yelling] >> the long shot has one the kentucky derby. >> pauley: so ended yesterday's 148th run for the roses. but steve hartman has a story which proves winning isn't everything. >> steve: not long ago friends and fans gathered to pay their final respects to one of the most unlikely celebrities in sport: zippy chippy. zippy loves b being a race horse. >> steve: and farce cul as it may look. unofficial zippy chippy fan club president, rosanne, says this memorial is hardly horse play. >> it could be a joke to some people, but the people that know the real story about zippy, they're heartbroken. >> steve: zippy chippy was born into a racing royal family. he is the grandson of kentucky derby winner northern dancer. and zippy, too, could have been one of the all-time
greats if only at the start of every race, he just would have started. >> they're off. and dwelling in the gate is zippy chippy. >> steve: zippy never understood why everybody was in such a rush. he lost every race he was in. 0 for 100. 101 if you count the time he lost to a minor league baseball player. that cemented his reputation as the los losingest race horse in history. this is zippy with his owner and faithful companion, felix monserrate. he died a few years ago, but he never gave up on this horse. >> he is like my son. i like him a lot. every time he run, he make me feel good. >> steve: zippy lived out the last leg of his life in upstate new york. he died last month at the age of 31, and is now being celebrated, finally,
as the winner that he was. >> he was loved. we'll miss him. >> steve: not a single person even mentioned his racing record. quite to the contrary. >> in a sport that winning is everything, zippy taught us that losing is a normal thing. >> steve: do you think people see themselves in zippy a little bit? >> oh, yeah. i think we all see ourselves in zippy. because it was always in zippy's terms. whatever zippy wanted, zippy did. >> steve: at the kentucky derby, all that matters is speed. but zippy reminds us that there is more to life than running for the roses. that sometimes it is better to just stop and smell them.
for online sports betting? 90% of profits go to the out of state corporations permanently. only eight and a half cents is left for the homeless. and in virginia, arizona, and other states, fanduel and draftkings use loopholes to pay far less than was promised. sound familiar? it should. it's another bad scheme for california. >> pauley: it is one of washington's most beloved memorials, marking its 100th year later this month. but how much do we really know about the monument honoring our 16th
president? with faith salie, we pay a visit. >> i have a dream...that one day this nation will rise up, live out the true meaning of its creed. >> reporter: in 1963, martin luther king, jr. stood on the steps of the lincoln memorial with a dream. in the year since, millions have come here to make their own voices heard. >> the lincoln memorial, more than any other monuments and memorials we ever see, has become historic sight in its own rider, a symbol of where you go to exercise your first amendment right. >> reporter: mike, chief of communications for the national mall, says creating a stage for protests wasn't part of the memorial's original design. >> it is on a straight line access from the capitol to the washington monument to where the lincoln memorial was
built. henry bacon, the architect, envisioned at the far end of the mall you have the capitol building, which represents the government, and here you have the lincoln memorial, the savior of that government. >> reporter: it is a symbolic link connecting the memorial and the mall to formally confederate virginia. but imagine if the lincoln memorial looked like this or this? those were just some of the designs that were initially proposed. ultimately, it was preeminent henry bacon's neoclassical design that was selected, modeled after the parthenon in athens. all to celebrate a man born in a log cabin. there are 87 steps to the memorial, forescore and seven steps leading up to lincoln. and those with an eagle eye can even spot a typo. >> the word "future," was
mistakenly carved and had to be puttied or filled in. >> reporter: a charming accident buried in a very deliberate design. the memorial was symbolically hune from rock that hailed from all parts of the united states. stone from massachusetts, colorado, tennessee, while lincoln himself is carved of georgia marble. the design's theme was unity, so there is almost no mention of the actual cause of the civil war: slavery. according to scott sandage, professor of american history at carnegie mellon in pittsburgh. >> by saying nothing about slavery, you avoid the rubbing of all sores. so they intentionally build a memorial that has no references in it to enslavement or the end of slavery, except for the
eloquent sentences he made in his second memorial address. >> reporter: on may 30th, 1922, the memorial was dedicated by former president howard taft in front of a large, segregated crowd, one that included lincoln's son. the only speaker of the day, head of the tuskegee institute, had his speech censored. only the civil war veterans were seated black next to white. >> the chicago defender began to run editorials that said the lincoln memorial wh has been opened but not dedicated because the memorial didn't say anything about slavery. >> reporter: perhaps the memorial's true dedication came in 1939, when african-american superstar marian anderson performed on the steps. >> i would say when she

i really, honestly believe these are moral questions, ultimately. >> reporter: gergen is reaching out to those who share his concerns with a new book: "heart, touched with fire." published by cbs parent country paramount global simon & schuster. it is a call for a new younger generation of leaders to seize the reins and to learn from someone who was so often in the room where it happened. take me in the room with richard nixon. what is a lesson from your time with nixon that applies today? >> nixon was a man who was, in my judgment, the best strategist we have had in the last century or so. but he also had demons inside him he had not learned to control, and they eventually took him down. >> always remember: others may hate you, but those who hate you don't win unless you hate them. and then you destroy
yourself. >> one of the most wonderful images is nixon getting on the helicopter. and that night in washington, life went on. >> it did, exactly right. i was there, i was on the lawn. i saw the helicopter take off. >> reporter: the transition of power worked in august 1974,. >> it did. >> reporter: not on january 6, 2021. >> that's a measure of how much we changed. >> reporter: you worked for republican presidents. do you have faith in leader mccarthy and leader mcconnell? >> i wish i did. i'm looking forward to the day when the republican party will regain their balances. >> reporter: the republicans have a former president still on the march politically in this country -- >> yep. >> reporter: -- pushing a lie. >> yep. but there are various signs that the power of the structure, trump in charge, that armor is beginning to fall off a little bit. >> reporter: gergen's

down in the situation room, we're closing in on osama, and all of these people advising him. we've moved to a more collective action. it becomes essential in a really complicated world that is moving so quickly. >> reporter: leadership can be tough? >> it can be very tough. but you can't forget the essentials that go back to the greeks and romans, of character and capability and of courage. those are things that are still necessary tod, hundreds of years later.
