but school officials say beyond kicking him out, there's little else they could do. >> this was a student that had no prior history of violence. who had odd and strange behavior but wasn't threatening a crime. >> reporter: meanwhile, the heavy toll from last week's shooting continues. friday, hundreds attended a funeral mass for federal judge john roll. one day after 9-year-old christina taylor green was laid to rest. gabe zimmerman a top aide to the congresswoman will be buried tomorrow. but, there's some good news, as well. two other aides to giffords are now out of the hospital. one of them, paused to look at all the tributes. >> it's just beautiful. >> reporter: then, she went back to work. giffords remains critically wounded but her recovery from being shot in the brain continues to amaze her doctors. >> we couldn't have hoped for any better improvement than we
see now given the severity of injury initially. >> reporter: now, doctors at the university of medical center say with each day, giffords is showing more movement in her arms and legs. the next big step, removing her breathing tube. that could happen as early as today. betty? >> all right. cbs news correspondents john blackstone in tucson. thank you. congresswoman giffords is making great strides in her recovery, these next several days are crucial. for a look at that we turn to dr. david linger, neurosurgeon from new york. thanks for being with us. is it really hard for you to imagine in the capacity serving as a doctor, neurosurgeon we are looking at congresswoman giffords today not only still alive but making remarkable progress? >> i'm not sure -- it's certainly remarkable progress. i think the most critical thing was she was alive and doing -- had function when she arrived at the hospital that. really was the set piece for the rest of her possibility of
recovery. i think it's just obviously just a terrific story and a great medical story of all the resource that went into her care and really how wonderfully she's doing. yes, it is -- it's remarkable in that the system worked, she's obviously a high-profile person and couldn't be a better person for this to work on. i'm sure everyone's very grateful for that. >> some people are, indeed, calling it miraculous. let's talk about the details of her injury. we're learning today that they may remove the breathing tube. what does that signify? >> well, basically, when you have a trauma such as this, the care is really divided into portions and pieces. the very initial step is the acute trauma and the triage and management, the surgery and decision making surround thachlst right now she's really in the intensive care unit phase and removal of the breathing tube is simply almost like a step in the process. the next step is to remove the breathing tube, to see how she
breathess on her own before then and basically assess her neurological function to go to the next step, rehabilitation. >> we've learned she can move her arms and legs, the next few days as you mentioned are very crucial. what are they looking for and trying to determine. >> i think there is -- nur logically her injury is more or less fixed at this point not very variable. really her brain will morals recover on its own. they are looking for an assessment of what her deficits are and what kind of rehabilitation and tick lat she'll need, whether she'll need physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy to learn to use her hands again. each of these functions will determine the intensity of those types of therapy that will be offered to her. >> very quickly, i was learning that it really depends on whether she's left brain or right -- no, right-handed or left-handleded to determine how much of i guess damage, perhaps, her brain has sustained. is that true? >> well, it's a little more complicated than that. but the truth is, if about 99%
of right-handed people are left-brain dominant which means -- what that means really when we think of dominance, we mean speech of the vast majority of right-handed people are left-brain dominant. left-handed people tend to be a little more complex. they often can have bilateral speech or right-sided speech. the truth i don't know if ms. giffords is left or right handed but there are -- we don't know what her speech function or dominance until you -- >> it is all connected. >> a little ways to go, still. we appreciate your insight in breaking it down for us. we appreciate that. >> thanks for having me. >> russ? thank you very much. congress returns to work next week in the aftermath of the tragedy in tucson. cbs news correspondents whit johnson joins us live from capitol hill to tell us what's next on the agenda. whit, good morning. >> reporter: russ, good morning to you. we had a brief moment of unities here in washington but inevitably things are getting back to business as usual.

i asked how she's is sleeping and she is that is the most difficult part right now. one other quick decision she made at that point, deciding not to look at anybody who was injured. i don't know how is she decided to do that but she said she didn't look at any of the -- >> that's got to be a searing memory. >> interesting her and bill badger, the other gentleman we'll talk to former military person you have to wonder if instinct kicked in. >> he was injured, wasn't he grazed in the head. >> he was, a little disoriented, he said but had enough wherewithal to grab the gunman, the wrist. >> i think i would react quickly if i was protecting the one is i love but hesitant if it was just me. >> just the aide to the congressman who said as soon as he heard the gunshot, he ran toward her. most people. >> you run away from a gunshot. >> run away. get on the ground, whatever. he ran toward her. >> held her hand and talked to her the whole time, as well. a lot of stories coming out of tucson. again, the story two of heroes coming up. you're watching "the early show" on cbs. ,,,,,,,,

and tended to her wounds and helped keep her alive. >> multiple victims. we need a lot more units here. >> patricia maisch, who wrestled away the killer's ammunition and undoubtedly saved some lives. >> he was pulling the magazine out of his pocket with his left hand and somebody said, grab the magazine, so i grabbed the magazine before he could. >> -- have tackled the suspect. >> we are grateful to the men who tackled the gunman as he stopped to reload. >> anytime he would even start to move, i would tighten my grip on his throat and this other guy would put more pressure on his neck. >> high rowism is here in the hearts of so many of our fellow citizens. all around us, just waiting to be summoned. as it was on saturday morning. >> and joining us from the university of medical center in tucson retired army colonel bill badger and patricia maisch.
good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> patricia beginning with you the word hero as we said is thrown around a lot these days. when someone calls you a hero, what goes through your mind? >> it goes through my mind that bill and roger are super heroes if i'm a hero. my son tells me that i should just say thank you. that the community needs heroes right now. so, i'm trying to be a little more accepting of the title. >> i understand. bill, what do you think when people call you a hero? >> well, i -- i think exactly the same thing as patricia just said. that, you know, we need to be concentrating on congresswoman gabrielle giffords right now and when she was able to sit up in bed yesterday and move her feet, that was a tremendous thing. and that's what i think we need to be concentrated on right now. >> of course, very good news to hear. patricia, take me back to last saturday. a lot of people would have frozen if they had been in the
position you were in. what do you think made you do what you did? >> well, i reacted because of my military training and i was a pilot in the army and you're trained to just react instantly when something is going wrong and i give all my credit to my military training. >> i understand. patricia, let me ask you the same question, what made you do what you did? >> i just reacted. i didn't act. i just had the opportunity to still be alive and i heard him say get the gun and then get the magazine. i couldn't get the gun, so i just was running on adrenaline, i guess. that's all i can tell you. i just reacted instead of acting. >> i wonder in a situation like this, patricia, do you learn anything about yourself? >> um, i -- i really guess not. one of the -- one of your
reporters asked my husband last sunday, was he surprised that i had done this? and i don't think of myself this way but he said something to the effect that i've known her for 30 years, doesn't surprise me a bit. she's fearless. but i don't think of myself that way. >> i see. bill, what was it like to be shouted out thank yous by the president in his memorial speech. >> it was an honor the president came out here to meet with my family and myself and i'm extremely humble. i think it was one of the best events i ever attended in my life, because everybody was focusing on, you know, on congresswoman gabrielle giffords and what we had to do to pull our country together. and if we can just pull, you know, our country together as
the result of this, why, i'll be happy. of course, the congresswoman, gabrielle giffords has to survive so that i'll be a friend of hers for life. >> i understand. i understand that that totally. patricia, you also got a call from the president of the united states. what did he say to you? >> well, first of all, i was talking to some media outlet so he had to leave a message. then when i was going through my messages it said this is katy in mr. obama's office and we'd like you to call him back. he'd like to have a few words to say you to and when i -- i had to take a moment then to compose myself, because i was just sitting in my car eating lunch so i could have a little down time and so i had a moment of teariness just hearing that the president wanted to talk to me. then when i called, there was no
wait, she said just a moment, please and the president was on the phone, he had stopped whatever he was doing. it was very, very humbling and very endearing to hear his voice and to have him praising me. >> patricia maisch and bill badger joining us from tucson this morning. thank you both for everything. we certainly appreciate it. >> thank you for your time. >> thank you. >> have a great saturday. it is now 37 minutes past the hour. mr. lonnie quinn with another check of the weather. >> you've got it, russ. you've got to feel great there are people like that in our world. look at all the smiling faces behind me. all the girls are participating in the colgate women's games the largest amateur track series in the country. helps them develop self-esteem and in sports, as well. i got to figure out what this means the big 4-0 in the big gig-amming as quick who will is the big 4-0 girl.

when the community college saw this video, they threw loughner out. they say they couldn't take any other action, that he made no specific threats in this video. all they could do was kick him out of school and that's what they d. the good news here in tucson is that representative gabrielle giffords continues to improve. doctors say she's now able showing some movement in her arms and legs. they may be able, today, to remove her breathing tube. that's one of the things they're looking forward, to removing her breathing tube. she is making progress and doctors here say her prognosis is good. kendis? >> john blackstone reporting this morning, thank you. three u.s. soldiers killed in iraq this morning in separate incident making it one deadliest days there in several mornts for american forces. iraqi soldiers opened fires on the americans during a training exercise in mosul, killing two of them. a third was killed on patrol in central iraq. a military advisory panel

wanted to ensure i dropped my child off two hours late on a snow day, i already knew that before i went to bed. i hope this call demonstrates why a 4:30 amz call does more to annoy than to inform. quit robo calling parents at 4:30 in the morning or at least allow us to opt out of these intrusive calls. >> joining us from washington, d.c. this morning is aaron titus, the father behind the revenge robo call. good morning to you. >> thanks for having me. >> take us back to the first you got from the school district. exactly what did i say. >> well, it told me that -- i went the bed the night before, found out there was going to be a school delay and at 4:30 in the morning got a call and jumped out of bed thinking, who died, then the second thought through my mind i've got to keep my kids asleep, i have five children, 5, 4, 3, 2 and one week old. trying to keep them asleep is top priority. i picked up the phone and it said you can sleep in for two hours and so i was a little
perturbed. >> what made you decide to get back at them in the way you did? >> well, it seemed a rather logical response, you know, i figured they were following the 2k3w08den rule treating me the same way they would have me treat them. i could lodge an angry phone call or something but figured it would be a waste of time. so, you know, maybe a robo call wouldn't be that bad of an idea. >> how angry were you when you got up at 4:30 in the morning? you must have been -- i mean, a family show, you must have been pretty angry, let's just say that, right. >> i was pretty upset, yeah. i think the sleep deprivation may have heightened my creativity as i rolled around in bed. >> in this robo call, the revenge robo call you targeted the school board members and superintendent, as well? >> yes, that's correct, yeah. >> did you think at any point, you know what, this is funny, maybe i'm crossing a line, maybe this is immature? what was going through your head after you had done it? >> well, immature, maybe. but, you know, for me, it was just a matter of effectiveness,
what i can do to make sure that these robo calls don't happen again at 4:30? i knew a phone call was not going to be very effective. so, i thault, the most effective thing i could do was to robo call them back and, you know, turns out it was, in fact very effective and somewhat satisfyi satisfying. >> some would argue there were parents not like you who did not school was delayed two hours. in that case should they not have called at all. >> i'm of the personal opinion if all robo calls went away the world would be a better place. i understand there are parents without internet access and need robo calls. they are necessary evil. 4:30 in the morning, no, huh-uh that is unacceptable. >> the school district issued a statement saying the robo call should never have gone out at 4:30 a.m. they normally go out between 5:30 and 6:00 a.m.
they admitted they made a mistake there. in the future, how do you think the school district is going to handle this based on the fact you got them pretty good? >> well, you know, i think it was a pretty effective use of my time. i think i got their attention and, you know, that's exactly what i wanted to do. i wanted to make sure they understand 4:30 in the morning was just not acceptable. >> we've had a pretty decent conversation. no robo calls to me later today, right. >> deal. >> okay. thank you so much for enjoying today. interesting story. >> thank you. >> have a great saturday. >> thanks. up next history in the making. a preview of the new martin luther king, jr., memorial. you're watching "the early show" on c bv zf. b s.

>> you can find them. >> very limited stock. >> people looking for swimsuits are probably going on vacation and will pay it for. wait until close to the end of the season when they need to get rid of it, the prime time. >> we are looking at a computer. we just heard electronics would be on sale. >> that's the exception. this is because kids go to school, students. there are a lot of deals especially for the personal computers and laptops that time of year. there are deals on computers all year long if you pay attention to what the chip headachers are doing. if they come out with a new chip a few months later you get a good deal but august is almost a good time for lower to mid-end laptops. >> take us into the fall and see what is going to be on sale, the best time to buy in october. >> we have another case of the new lines coming in, big appliances, washers, dryers, dish washers, that's a great time you if go in october. ask for the scratch and dent model by the way on the floor. you can make that discount even deeper. you can get 60 to 70% off of this if you time it right and get the right model being phased
out the next year. jeans also falls into the back-to-school category plus new lines coming in so two things converging around october or late september good deals, by one get one free, 60% off. >> buy one, get one free? >> yeah. >> school supplies, should you wait until after school starts. >> if you see a great deal in august peak season by all means grab it but more likely to find clearance in october especially at the drugstores that need to clean stuff out to get the candy in. go for the school supplies a bit after -- plan ahead. all of this stuff. think of the year ahead. >> mark your calendars. >> go to cbs news.com and put it in your calendar and it'll thereabout and you know when to buy it and the savings will last throughout the year. >> and we'll be thanking you. thank you, john. for more, head to our website. coming up the artist who inspired ten million plays on myspace, singer/song writer ingrid markelson performs live

them now. >> oh. >> it makes sense. look, people won't have them, no one has them. let me get them when no one wants them. >> think of the last time were you in a new york city apartments that was cold in the winter. they run so hot. >> and very dry. somebody told me after the super bowl the prices on flat-screen tvs and stuff like. >> that that makes sense because everyone wants to make sure their superbowl party will be great with the gigantic television so you will get it -- >> and being guys, they have great deals before the super bowl for flat-screen tvs. apparently. >> we all think we know, right. >> we know everything. >> it isn't like the stron nick purchase typically the thanksgiving time like the black friday thing. >> that's what they say. >> they try to make you think. >> but, you know, guys. >> it's marketing. >> it's a conspiracy. >> guys, we have to have the big tv, you know, for the super bowl. >> the bigger, the better. >> we have to go out and buy that. thanks for your tips, betty. i have a birthday coming up. >> really?

cooking segment with a very young looking anchorman. take a look. >> first i want to get the vegetables. >> as a guy who doesn't cook and happy to tell everyone russ doesn't cook this sounds very complicated. >> no. no. this is home cooking at its best, which actually. >> oh, my goodness. 14 years later we've come full circle. chef michael is back, you haven't changed a bit. >> it could be worse. >> it could be. michael is now executive chef and managing partner at what many consider new york's finest steakhouse, porterhouse. preparing a delicious dinner our viewers chose with their calls all founder 40 bucks. fantastic to see you. >> great to see you. in the old days it was 20 bucks. >> i was going ask. i feel my mother told me whis castles used to be a nickel. i feel like that. what's on the menu today. >> a roasted beet salad with cheese and soy glazed london
broil and great classic dessert apple brown betty. >> where do we begin. >> i didn't grow up with beets but love them. these are yellow and red beets very common in the marketplace, not usually specialty produce, these are full-size beets, not tiny baby veg, very inexpensive. drizzled with olive oil in a 375 degree oven, the skins are still on, as you can see. >> substantial, as you said, not little boys. >> exactly. real beets and run a very affordable price roasted 45 minutes to an hour depending on the size. the best way to tell if they are done pierce them with a knife or fork. they slip out of those skins like peeling and apple and i try to keep the red and yellow separate because the red just dyes everything including your fingertips. the simplest salad you can
imagine with boston lettuce or butter leaf like this, tender leaf lettuce wash and drain it and put a bit of the red and yellow beets. the roasting concentrates the flavor. when you broil beets, in liquid but when you roast them they shrivel and shrink but the flavor gets intense. >> very colorful. some cheese, as well? >> a little blue cheese. you are saying where's the dressing? where's the dressing? i make a very -- i don't make a dressing for this, really, drizzle with olive oil, again extra virgin olive oil this is the place to use extra virgin and a squeeze lemon juice for flavor. that's it. >> we'll try them in a bit. the main course, this looks fantastic. >> well, you know, london broil is just a name of a dish sts' not an actual cut of beef. >> okay. >> so, when we say a london broil, it originally referred to flank steak which is a little pricey there. are two kinds you can get, the
flank steak or a top round london broil or a chuck london broil. i like the top round. >> this looks so good. >> this is beautiful, a beautiful beefy cut because the top round is near the sirloin with really great flavor and very affordable and cooks up great on a grill. i don't use the broiler. what we'll do we have a glaze, the soy glaze, i have soy we'll add dry sherry, not a cooking sherry with salt in it but a ser ree you might have a glass of sherry something that is palatable. a little sugar and some ginger. that is grated ginger goes in and reduces to this beautiful glaze. this is, you know, just about half of the volume of that and then we just put a bit on the beef and adjust our seasonings maybe want a bit of pepper on there, maybe a little additional salt and a hot pan. we're doing this on a hot pan. and that's really one of the great ways to cook this because a broiler tends to be kind of
steamy. >> how long typically will you cook this. >> you know what, it's going to go, in we'll cook three minutes on this side. this is two and a half pounds, just fits in that pan. and then, when we flip it. >> you can smell the soy. >> you can smell the soy and the ginger. in a minute we'll flip it and when we flip it, i'm going to put the lid on. the whole cooking will take about six or seven, eight minutes. >> that's all. >> that's great. >> we are going to leave it partially open so it works like a dutch zero ven. >> that looks fantastic. >> a beautiful stake cooked in there for slicing is really what this is all about, what do you do with it after you cook it? it's really going to be about slicing it. you have to slice it across the grain what they sometimes say against the grain at a 45 degree angle. look at this, you get beautiful slices of beef. >> can't wait to try that. very quickly, dessert. >> the side dish with, the butternut squash with brown sugar and walnuts so we have
some of that. >> recipe on the website. >> the simplest of des setters, a classic american dessert. plain bread crumbs, butter, cinnamon and brown sugar and apples and build it up in a dish like that two quarts, enough dessert for six people. >> apple brown betty. let's look at the total. see if you did as well as you did 14 years ago. okay? he did, 36.82. >> all right!
