tv   The Story With Martha Mac Callum  FOX News  September 6, 2019 4:00pm-5:00pm PDT

4:00 pm
"special report." it's been fair, balanced, unafraid. "the story" or hosted by martha maccallum. the nfl started last night, with the patriots make it? >> martha: absolutely. looking forward to a big weeken weekend. thank you, bret. good to see you. what have we been watching over the last couple of days in this story, everybody? dorian a whole new level of devastation, as sea of broken roads, homes, towns. see these people walking through the wreckage. they say there are hundreds, maybe even thousands of people who are still trapped under all of this waiting for them who are still alive hoping they are going to be rescued. supplies are dangerously low at this point.
4:01 pm
>> i do not have anything. >> water is a threat right now. >> basically all the homes around me are gone. it was horrific. >> martha: this beautiful part of the world with its kind people caught in a hellish nonstop with the machine in the bahamas where the most seasoned storm chaser had never seen, her kid man josh back now sitting with me back in new york city and says he's lucky to be alive after he chased the heart of this storm. going to share the story and up to a few minutes. our own steve harrigan who has seen this kind of death and misery everywhere from rwanda to the earthquake in haiti. today, he was just astounded by what he saw around him. listen to this.
4:02 pm
>> you mentioned the body count? that's going to change dramatically. when you stand here, you can smell bodies. >> martha: says he's never seen anything like he's watchin watching. reporting one man, 30-year-old adrian barrington mourns the loss of his five year old little son adrian jr. as waves moved in on their home, he put them on the roof to protect him. then he was swept away in the storm surge. i just cannot imagine. i cannot imagine the pain this man is gone through today and so many others. among the more than 6,000 people currently listed missing are 23 relatives of the famous actor sidney poitier, another 70,000 are in urgent need at this hour of food, shelter, water as you
4:03 pm
heard. senators marco rubio, rick scott, florida governor ron desantis went there today. urging the government to do more to aid this extraordinary humanitarian crisis. let's go to correspondent ellison barber. what can you tell us tonight? >> hi, martha, one of the private airport in nassau where we see unions happening, trapper days in abaco island, trapping grand bahamas. they have made it here come up behind me you can hear the helicopter on the other side of his bay. where they have been burning people, come off as a helicopter on the other side to come through to get medical treatmen treatment, many are put in ambulances and taken to towns for further treatment. one person i met it's like a nightmare when she left her home in abaco. another person told me when the waters finally receded spending 15 hours huddled in the corner hoping to avoid some of the debris coming into her home, her sister said there was a dead
4:04 pm
body on their yard, didn't know what to do so they grabbed a dead sheet and covered it up waiting for the authorities to, and perhaps get it for that we keep hearing from people, they keep saying there are bodies, so many more deaths than we know. one woman i met told me 32 members of her family were still missing. came to the airport hoping for some indication where any of them, still waiting to come get answers. >> martha: we hope she's reunited. thank you very much. storm chaser has survived the inner core of 50 hurricanes but describe this one as "nuclear grade" and notes the whole neighborhoods were swept by the surge higher than anything in memory. he's here with his harrowing story but let's go to breaking news, respondent trace gallagher who has the back story tonight. hi, trace. >> as the cat five hurricane bearing down on the great abaco island, hurricane chaser wrote
4:05 pm
to his 20,000 twitter followers, i feel like a rocket is about to take off. this is going to get ugly. he was right on both counts. also reported the schoolhouse he was saying was near the hurricanes eye wall, where the winds are the highest and most destructive. related to his followers the children being moved to a safe space and being wrapped in blankets, then the social media play went dark by dark for two days, when dorian crushed the bahamas with 185-mile-per-hour winds. the hurricane itself was mercilessly stalled and the islands were pummeled for days. many fear that josh morgan and dominic didn't make it. his twitter feed came back online with the, "i'm alive, the most intense cyclones i've witnessed in 28 years of chasing. thought i was playing it safe by riding in out by staying in a
4:06 pm
safe concrete school." compare the storm to being in washing machine to a man who's seen the inner core of four doesn't hurricanes he's a harvard educated historian who worked in the film industry and started his own branding advertising firm. if you find yourself evacuating a storm, the guy coming the other way followed by steve harrigan. >> martha: he's joining me now now. you heard from the science channel hurricane man which premieres 9:00. what was this like? >> unbelievable. so many hurricanes and i get accustomed to them on occasion but this thing at sustained winds of 185 miles per hour to put that in perspective.
4:07 pm
that's not just a cat five, that's way into cat5. hurricane michael devastated the panhandle with 160 so this is whole magnitude beyond that. when you are in a solid concrete building you aren't even safe. you are in a school which is a designated shelter that the wind was so intense that the concrete was smashed. at the height of the storm you couldn't see anything. all you heard was crashing. the windows blowing in from a holding furniture against the shutters to give them from caving in. barely made it to the eye and when we came outside, the cars in the parking lot their own every direction, mangled like they've been in a blender. also a force of the wind and had to look into another building before the backside came. speak of these folks were lucky that you were with them because you knew when you were in the eye, did you have a sense of how much timing they might have in that? >> a great question. no. i was really spooked. do we make a run for another
4:08 pm
building? i did not want to be caught in this 185-mile-per-hour winds. some folks caught up here were killed by flying debris. we all piled into three cars to mow one of them is mine because those are the only three that were working. we managed to get a mile away to a government building will be rode it out, one side of me wanted to stay put because i did not want to see that there. >> martha: they were small children with you. you all were wrapping the children in blankets to keep them safe? >> the height of the storm, the boards flew off. holding shares against the windows. i realized if those shutters blew in, we would have 185 miles per hour -- the room would become a shooting gallery. i thought, okay, the kids, i've been in so many emergencies like this. not this bad but ones like it, get the kids away from windows, wrap them in blankets, put them under the table.
4:09 pm
>> martha: what did you see when it was over? >> whole areas of the city just flattened, piles of rubble. near that government complex where many people took refuge during the ria. that huge area, these are two neighborhoods, poor neighborhoods very low lighting. got swept by giant storm surge so that nothing was left. some folks managed to swim out to make it to the government center and a lot of people came with traumatic injuries. the ones he didn't make it are the ones still missing. >> martha: it's unbelievable and we all watched it, everyone thinks it's going to be coming over to our coast, watching this, all the reports, it's just sitting there. sitting there for 36 hours. how do you psychologically deal with the fact that it is not leaving for 36 hours? that's unheard of.
4:10 pm
>> that was the interesting thing about this. it just wouldn't go. hurricane michael, the one that hit the florida panhandle, two hours of violent winds in the next morning it was sunny and hot. this one after the core of the hurricane passed, two solid days of tropical storm conditions meaning heavy rain. imagine the insult of injury to victims who just where in these hot, dark rooms inside a building? >> martha: it's so crazy. i can't imagine. >> it made it so much worse for the victims. it was after the third day when finally the sun came out. >> martha: disappeared from your very active twitter feed for a while and your friends and followers were really concerned that you were one of the casualties in this. we are just going to keep getting the word out to these people, they need so many supplies and thank goodness the u.s. government and coast guard are doing everything they can to help them. good to meet you.

4:15 pm
>> i want to be really clear that that's exactly what we are going to do. americans who own ar-15s, incorporated ak-47s, will have to surrender them to the government. >> martha: the battle over gun confiscation in america is heating up. and a "new york times" op-ed written by stanford law professor and student argued in the opinion that the 1994 assault weapons ban really did work.
4:16 pm
in the 15 years since the ban ended, the trajectory of gun massacres has been sharply upward, tracking the ownership and military weapons and high-capacity magazines. my next guest says that is not true and he's here to tell us why. joey jones is a retired u.s. core bomb technician who served two combat missions and suffered a life-changing injury in 2010 when an ied incident institutedn loss of both his legs. he is now a fox news contributor. we talked to sean parnell about it and you say that that that is not accurate. why? >> it's not just that is not accurate, you aren't comparing the same thing. the point now is 20 million would be considered assault weapons in this country, those are complete rifles that have none to be produced. >> martha: that number has gone up dramatically. >> that number will continue to
4:17 pm
rise before a ban would get put in place. the problem is there weren't 20 million assault weapons when the first ban was put in place. they were substantially less. but also what happened in that time is social media, facebook, we have an epidemic of young people killing themselves and killing others and we don't know exactly why they are doing that. that's as much of an epidemic as anything else. >> martha: absolutely. >> for weeks, we have this enraged discussion of rather we should ban a certain type of garden, we are feeding the same fire for that to begin with. we are feeding into that. >> martha: so many of them it would nearly be impossible to get any handle -- but here's the problem i think both sides of this debate need to talk to each other about. let's put this up on the screen. it's the amount of people -- we aren't talking about law-abiding gun owners. we are talking about crazy people who get their hands on
4:18 pm
these weapons and use them and they are the killer, they pull the trigger, take a look at this. in dayton, nine people killed in 30 seconds. in parkland you had 17 children killed in six minutes. in las vegas, 58 people killed in ten minutes. that is an astonishing -- >> in oklahoma oklahoma city yd thousands of people dead in minutes. everything you do with a bomb is illegal today. if we implemented an assault weapons ban much like the universal background checks or obama's famous pay your fair share, a talking point that sounds really good. but if you do understand what you need for it to be effective you are a politician looking for votes and trying to create division. >> martha: you think it's not practical. >> you have to be honest about it. if you did the assault weapons ban being proposed, first thing
4:19 pm
we have to go to his grandfather in 20 million guns so the first thing that would happen is you either have to institute a version of background checks complicit with the registry, a constitutional argument. what i owned, how it is. >> martha: let me ask you then, why would you not want the government to know what you own? >> when it comes to weapons? >> martha: why do you feel that's an invasion of your privacy? >> i was at jfk and someone for a solid ten minutes, i was a terrorist at jfk and i'm pretty well known in politics at least. even the law enforcement officer knew who i was in real life. you have clive and bundy that's in a stand down, things like that that happened where the government might not be on the right side of the argument and i do not want to find out when they shop at my house. that's a big problem for me. >> martha: tell me what your solution is. we all agree --
4:20 pm
what would you recommend to try to stop this? >> why don't we have bombings anymore if all the information is there an information more prevalent? when we finally had enough bombings, we stood up an entire department of homeland security -- >> martha: yes, but what do you do about these incidents -- -- >> listen to my explanation and you'll hear it. we have to point congress to the right direction. the passing of roe vs. wade made the country safer, right? what they don't take into account is new york city crackdown on crime. >> martha: in terms of the kinds of killings we see now because we remember the oklahoma bombing. the issue is this kind, this. gave me one thing that you would do to try and get your arms around this problem and end it because nobody wants to see these children killed. >> there's 100 things that i can do. the current system that we have. we go into buy a gun in the
4:21 pm
state of georgia or any state and you put a background check, you wait three days. if the atf or background system hasn't responded to you, that gun store owner can release that weapon to you. even though we have a background system in place -- >> martha: tighten that up. >> my point is it's a false equivalency to say, you don't support the assault weapons ban, tell me what you will do. what i can tell you is banning assault weapons wouldn't work. >> martha: i still haven't heard what you would do. i'm not in favor or not in favor of the assault weapons ban, i'm having a discussion what's going on and how tragic it is. we need to figure out. maybe it's mental health but i think that should be police officers every school in america. if you asked me that question, i would say i want a security guard who was armed at every school in america. let's start there. >> absolutely.
4:22 pm
let's ask a local municipality to spend -- we can't ask d.c. to put up police officer in the school across the country. a lot more when you come people who are here illegally, right? we have a dozen people wreaking havoc on us, killing about as many people as timothy mcveigh did in the day, you mean to tell me that law enforcement agencies we have can't crackdown on that, the systems in place can't do it? prove me you are using those. >> martha: we know that -- >> talking point proposals that law abiding citizens proved to be effective. >> martha: thank you, good to have you here tonight. house democrats hit a brick wall with the mueller investigation wanting to impeach the president for racism and now it's propping up taxpayers and hotels. where are the rules? "the story" investigates coming up next.

>> martha: democrats kicking off a new session in congress of the probe they believe it can lead to impeachment proceedings. the focus turned to racism and now an old he is back on the front burner, where the president trump is profiting. jason chaffetz, fox news contributor and executive former aide to hillary clinton. what are the rules here. mike pence goes, stays 13,000 and now are for the plane, the president is profiting off of that. is it legal, is it not legal? >> so trump so far is 2-0 in the courts. it's a bad look.
4:28 pm
i would hope the chief of staff would put out a directive and say nobody can stay at a trump organization facility if you are in u.s. government. if you're in a political organization -- >> martha: it's not in the president's d and a, he hears someone's going somewhere, you have to stay at my place and do the same thing with the g7. is he going to profit off of it, is going to compartmentalize and say that this money goes into this fund, can't touch it until you are not president anymore? >> i don't know if you can do any of those things frankly and the way some of the money is allocated, i don't know if you want the president going in saying put it here, put it here. i know in your tease you talk about a lot of things that democrats may be doing this for. it's accountability by and large. the president is not doing anything we are used to in terms of political norms. some people like that. some folks are very uncomfortable with it. it's accountability. he should be staying away from
4:29 pm
it. speaker of the gsa and trump organization came to an agreement or any profit of any n entity that stays at a trump facility, that profit is paid back to the government. donald trump has bent over backwards here. what are the opportunity costs? they want to know how much money you spent on the menu bar at the hotel? that's what jerry nadler and elijah cummings are worried about? >> what they are trying to figure out is not the money, it's the influence. that piece right there is the most important. it's not just them staying in the hotel and paying for peanuts at the minibar. are these folks going to treat us favorably or not? >> martha: like the clinton foundation these are similar issues. >> i did work for the clinton foundation and they do not believe the same thing is true here because they weren't in the white house at the time. >> martha: she was secretary of state. >> but if you think about what the clinton foundation did, they
4:30 pm
were doing work in other countries like fighting aids and hiv. >> just because you say there are good things, there's a record of it. >> there's no accountability of what the money was used for, record of the medicine and good works the staff did on the ground in those countries. >> martha: that's why >> that's why you have uranm one problem. >> martha: what do you think of much of the president say never mind, g7 should not be -- put it anywhere you want? >> it's a bad look. he's given up all his salary, losing lots of money by doing his government service. don't stay at a trump organization. stay at the marriott at least. >> martha: the radisson? that's going to go over great. >> the hampton inn. >> martha: there you go. thank you, guys with dire warning from the transportation union to american airlines to be

4:36 pm
earlier this year from the president of the transport workers union at a listening event hosted by one of the top executives at american airlines. now a member of that union has been arrested and charged with sabotaging a bow in 737 7:30 boeing 737, disconnecting key flight contros before it was scheduled for fli. corresponded trace gallagher has listened to all the details and it was hashed out this evening. >> american flight 2034 scheduled to fly from miami to nassau, bahamas, to mid-july. when the pilots were powering up the engine, the era light came on and took the jet back to the gate. during inspection, a mechanic found a tube had been deliberately obstructed with foam, which mean the pilots would not have known the aircraft speed, pitch, and other critical data.
4:37 pm
after reviewing a man with a limp getting out of a truck and accessing the 7:30 sevens navigation compartment roughly 15 minutes. a mechanic at american airlines for 31 years, court records say that he told investigators that "his intention was not to cause harm to the aircraft or his passengers." instead, he wanted the jet taken out of service so we could get over time. also admits he's upset over stalled contract negotiations between the 12,000 employee mechanics union and the airline. the dispute has been costing him money. it's no secret negotiations have resulted in ugly threats and better legal battles, but the union said it is shocked by the allegations, quoting if these allegations of sabotage are true, they are outrageous and indefensible and we fully condemn such action. our mechanics are highly trained
4:38 pm
professionals who are dedicated to the highest standards in the industry and we will not tolerate anything less. aviation experts will tell you that even if the suspect in intent to harm anyone, two airplane crashes result in part from pilots not knowing the speed or the pitch of the aircraft. expected to be indicted on a sabotage related charged by a federal grand jury. american airlines for his part has an unwavering equipment to safety and is taking the matter very seriously. martha? >> martha: quite the story. joining me now, anthony rahman, faa licensed commercial pilot and a junk instructor. what do you make of this? >> this is a terribly frightening situation. any passenger aboard that plane and the pilots themselves would be terribly disturbed with what
4:39 pm
was happening for the study powering up the aircraft and that's when they first luckily and thankfully receive the warning that the air data module which provides information providing airspeed, the aircraft's pitch and relation to the horizon, and other critical flight data that's absolutely necessary to keep the plane under control. they realize there was a problem, return to the terminal, and the sabotage was discovered. >> martha: as you say, those are critical factors to flying the plane. so the suggestion from this suspect that he thought he wasn't going to harm anyone if this plane got off the ground, what do you say to that? >> ridiculous. absolutely ridiculous. when anyone tampers or sabotages an aircraft, there is always the risk of loss are of life or total loss of the aircraft,
4:40 pm
particularly in the air data module which is critical to the safety of the flight. >> you heard that really bold statement from the union representative in the beginning, that raises eyebrows when then you have a sabotage incident happening afterwards. there is no connection? what do you think of all that? >> there is always some sort of activity, sabotage, destruction of property, usually to noncritical infrastructure by a few disgruntled union members. most union members are honest, hardworking people making a living taking care of their families. but a union leader doing that? it can create individuals and encourage individuals who are mentally disturbed or terribly disgruntled taking ridiculous action like this. >> martha: other things coming out about his background, another job he had. i read at some point he was
4:41 pm
concerned about bankruptcy, personal bankruptcy which is not a crime in and of itself, but it might go to some of the motivation here. what else do you know about him? >> there is seems to be problems along his entire career. there are some allegations and some information that he was employed by alaska airlines from '98-2008 and during his tenure there he made at least three -- at least it's alleged, he made three critical errors during maintenance procedures on the aircraft flight systems, which would cause terrible problems for the pilot. >> martha: is that a viable offense? >> he received warnings and was terminated and had the audacity to file a discrimination suit after that which according to the records was unsuccessful. >> martha: should people feel unsafe by the story, was happening around these aircraft before takeoff? >> i do not think the flying
4:42 pm
public has the feel unsafe. the record of the airline safety speaks for itself. the cross-checks, professionalism of pilot training. it all provides very high levels of safety. >> martha: thank you very much. good to have you here tonight. coming up next, what does the lawyer of brett kavanaugh's accuser mean when she said this? >> we will always have an answer next to his name. when he takes a scalpel to roe v. wade, we will know who he is can we know his character, we know what motivates him, as part of what motivated christine. >> martha: that's part of what motivated christine. does that put this story and her credibility back in question? are ladies' night panel up next. >> is this about roe v. wade, is this about people off the bat wanted to see him never take a spot on the supreme court? where is this coming from? >> i just want process on i can
4:43 pm
be heard. >> martha: no thoughts of where this is coming from? >> i want a fair process where i can be heard. i mean, if you haven't thought about switching to geico, frankly, you're missing out. uh... the mobile app makes it easy to manage your policy, even way out here. your marshmallow's... get digital id cards, emergency roadside service, even file a... whoa. whoa. whoa. whoa. whoa. whoa! oops, that cheeky little thing got away from me. my bad. geico. it's easy to manage your policy whenever, wherever. can i trouble you for another marshmallow? if ylittle thingsate tcan be a big deal., that's why there's otezla. otezla is not a cream.
4:44 pm
it's a pill that treats plaque psoriasis differently. with otezla, 75% clearer skin is achievable. don't use if you're allergic to otezla. it may cause severe diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting. otezla is associated with an increased risk of depression. tell your doctor if you have a history of depression or suicidal thoughts or if these feelings develop. some people taking otezla reported weight loss. your doctor should monitor your weight and may stop treatment. upper respiratory tract infection and headache may occur. tell your doctor about your medicines and if you're pregnant or planning to be. otezla. show more of you.

forward bombshell allegations of sexual misconduct in a newly surfaced video, her attorney who became quite well known, deborah katz admitted that the fight was motivated at least in part in roe v. wade. >> i believe her he'll always have an asterisk next to his name but when he takes a scalpel to roe v. wade we will know who he is, we know his character, we know what motivates him. that's part of what motivated christine. >> martha: very interesting to my right? here for ladies' night, gerri willis, lisa boothe, jessica tarlov. we were all told that it was a horrible thing that happened to her in high school at a party in a play she couldn't remember and said people were there who witnessed it.
4:48 pm
nobody could corroborate her story. there's another motive here. >> deborah katz is a resistor. told abc at an anti-trump rally that we will resist. all the attorneys are democratic donors. it undermined any credibility christine blasey ford had to, as she lied about her fear of flying, lied about the reason the husband had a second door in her house for her own best friend lee lynn kaiser denied being an eyewitness and later reportedly told the fbi that she felt pressured to change her story. i do not think christine ford had credibility in her eyes, this further erodes whatever she had. >> it also reminded me and this attorney also said, we must ponder the very real possibility that dr. ford had she not come from the same background, same race, same class, same country
4:49 pm
club is brett kavanaugh, basically she would not have been given this opportunity, which is interesting given the fact that, jessica, the dianne feinstein sat on these allegations for such a long time. and then decided when there was all of this servicing that it was time to bring this forward at the very last minute. >> martha: that was christine ford's wish. dr. ford said from the get-go that she went to her congresswoman and got kicked up to dianne feinstein and she said i'm not interested in what ended up happening to her. i want to make you aware that this man who may turn out -- this is when he had not been selected and a lot people thought it would be a mccombie barrett, first of all. i am wondering what dr. ford thinks about this, because i believe having watch her testimony which people on both sides of the aisle sound credible, our own judge napolitano said he found
4:50 pm
dr. ford credible and brett kavanaugh edible. i think should return to her original story which is, i wanted to put up a warning signal, that this is not a person i believe should have the most important job in the world. >> people wanted to turn it in a political event in dianne feinstein push that forward as his head against her original will. do you think of a gerri, she was used by people who wanted to make a statement about roe v. wade? >> i always thought that is an opportunity. the whole world blows up, this could be a possibility she would have used roe v. wade to bring this out? this is like the level of stability in country has disappeared, gone through the floor and that's what i find so concerning right now. we are always arguing, never coming to consensus. >> martha: let's talk about
4:51 pm
mary and who had the audacity to say she was praying for the people in the path of the hurricane. she got mocked on twitter for this. she originally said the bahamas, florida, georgia, albeit in our prayers now, we've seen dorian turn away from land, it's not a wacky idea, creative use of the power of the mind. went on to say that she is concerned, basically, that other candidates in the democrat party have alienated people who believe in prayer. she says i grew up in texas and to me this is a normal thing to suggest that perhaps we should all pray for these people to be safe. why is that so derided, jessica? >> i think there are two kinds of prayer at work. there is pray for the people who have been affected, i think we can all get on board however you pray or think of people virtually traditionally. but then i think people were taken issue with the idea that you could buy the power -- harnessing the power of our
4:52 pm
minds we could've change the course of it. the democrat party right now, especially with what's going on with gun violence in this country, has a very difficult time with these thoughts and prayers argument, right? that's what we feel that we get from republicans in the set of meaningful change on gun control. >> praying in general is considered something that is weird, i think. i don't understand it, personally. i think that the idea that -- mary's marianne williamson tweeted fdr's prayer before d-day, would there be a president who would say to the whole nation, i need to bring you altogether, we are all going to pray together. democrats don't start recognizing the fact that a lot of people in this country would like that, they are going to lose. that's what she said. >> look, i'm from the south. i don't understand the negative reaction against prayer. churches and communities all over this country have done such positive things for the people who are members, people who are not members, my own mother who
4:53 pm
worked in hospice care for years as a volunteer told me over and over again about the power of prayer for those patients that she worked with. the kinds of things who they'll make that happen to are astonishing. to dismiss this belief is fundamentally wrong in space. >> there's a large portion of evangelical christians who will never vote for the democratic party, but i will say the power of pear, it's real but why do we often hear in terms of a hurricane, or a mass shooting, what do people say when they are being interviewed, i prayed to god to save me, i pray for my life. if prayer isn't powerful, why is it such a crisis and dire situation do they turn to god? i do think prayer is incredibly powerful. i wish i could say prayer as opposed to payer. >> martha: speaking of the power of prayer and positivity,
4:54 pm
gerri willis is the embodiment of that around here. and we all prayed for you during your bout with breast cancer and you revealed in an editorial that you just had a recent scare as well. >> it wasn't breast cancer, that's not what i was facing. it was precancer cells in my cervix and this was revealed in a routine test i took. we took care of it, i had a biopsy, we remove those cancer cells and took a look around and there were no more cancer cells. that is very good news indeed. i have to tell you, all of that brought me right back to the diagnosis of breast cancer, stage iii lobular, the fear and the anxiety, knowing this one this weekend and i would be seeing so many women who have been impacted and hear so many stories of people i work with, guards at the at the new york stock exchange tell me about their mother, sister who died of breast cancer, took me right back there and i feel even more
4:55 pm
committed. >> i lost my mom to breast cancer five years ago and i have long been a participant in the komen race. i'm going to run, my daughter is going to run, my sisters will be there as well. it's a wonderful event that we are so proud to support. >> thank you, thank you. i'm so glad you will be there. >> how about you guys? >> i will go. >> we've got you next year. i need to see my uncle anyway. [laughter] you all look pretty in your pink today. >> martha: thank you. more of "the story" coming up next. which most pills don't. flonase helps block 6 key inflammatory substances. most pills only block one. flonase. that's why with dell small business technology advisors. .
