Life is funny like that.
Excuse me, Senator, I'm sorry for interrupting.
I see the show. I don't see anything funny about it. It's just me with my family, at home.
They all took drugs together, this was a mutually enjoyable experience.
There's a value to bearing witness to what hundreds of thousands of people are going through. I see nothing wrong with a reporter going through it with them. I've never pretended to grab onto something. The audience knows when something's real and when it's not.
Just as there were excesses at the beginning -- the early feminists [tried] to rule out a lot of the sexuality and frivolity and, you know, they demonized Barbie and Cosmo girl in high heels and shopping and a lot of the fun stuff women like -- at the end, you know, they are equally sort of into conformity, but completely the opposite way.
We heard church bells ringing. We heard people yelling, screaming, clapping. A friend of one of the miners came over, crying, to tell us that he had heard and just been told in the church that 12 of them (miners) had been found alive.
In hindsight, you think, yeah there are things you could have done. But at the time we had multiple sources telling us the information and we had people in positions of authority ... telling us the information was correct. When you have officials telling you something and eyewitnesses telling you something, at some point you have to rely on that information.

I wouldn't call it looting. What I have seen is desperate people kind of wandering around here in downtown Gulfport. There are a lot of police here in Gulfport, so you can't get away with looting. But I have seen people picking stuff up from the wreckage. I saw a man with two bottles of olive oil. He was hoping to try to cook something up. He says he has no water. He doesn't really have much of a place to go. So there are a lot of people just desperately in need.
[Anyway,] Awkward T.V. Moments ... I decided at the last second that I just had to have my laptop. Smooth move, Columbo.
There is nothing sadder to see people who lived a good decent life dead on the side of the road. I used to go overseas to report on that but now I'm doing it at home.
