5:00 am
scherr chefs here in studio 57. he joins us with his ultimate dish. >> it's even his birthday. we'll be celebrating. but we want to begin with the dreaded sequester. as you probably know by now, that's washingtonspeak for across the board spending cuts. they were supposed to be so painful congress and the white house would have to cut a deal to avoid them, but no deal. so let's get the latest from cbs news white house krontsz correspondent. >> last night president obama signed the order setting in motion the largest automatic across the board spending cuts in american history at 8:30 p.m. and then the administration informed each and every federal agency how much it will be cut. gradually more and more. >> none of this is necessary.
5:01 am
it's happening because a choice that republicans in congress have made. they've allowed these cuts to happen because they refused to budge on closing a single wasteful loophole to help reduce the deficit. >> reporter: president obama and congressional leaders met for less than an hour. they did not even discuss alternatives to the spending cuts or when they might again talk about a solution. the impediment is this. mr. obama wants to raise taxes on millionaires or eliminate corporate tax loopholes. republicans say they raised $600 billion in the fiscal cliff deal and now is the time they say to focus on spending cuts. >> the prot got his tax hikes on january 1st. this discussion about revenue in my view is over. >> washington has got a spending addiction and it's time to begin to deal with that addiction. >> reporter: the cuts will hit every single agency.
5:02 am
friday they canceled 11 ship maintenance projects in virginia. other agencies prepared orders for mandatory time off without pay and steep reductions in overtime. those furloughs could start in mid-april. >> people are going to be hurt. the economy will not grow as quickly as it would have. unemployment will not go down as quickly as it would have. and there are lives behind it. >> reporter: top white house officials predict republican ends will eventually cave and give in. they say they've never been more unified and they'll withstand whatever pressure comes from the white house and the public. this much we know to be true. until this morning the politics and spending cuts have been entirely theoretical. now they're going to be real and possibly unpredictable. >> that's exactly what we're going to be talking about at the white house. thanks so much. so what is next for this mess, and how will it affect the country and how soon?
5:03 am
joining us from washington is john dickerson, cbs news political director and here in our studio is senior director on marketplace and public radio. nice to have both of you with us this morning. good morning. >> good morning. >> they brought this up. it's a matter of how people are feeling. people are asking why didn't we see a bigger impact on the stock market when we learned there was no deal on the table. how do you explain that? >> i think they realize two things. washington is going to faith. they're going to have these con very saktvery sagss. they're going to have these conversations. the dow is up. we're doing pretty dwight. right now there's no immediate impact on the economy. it's going to take a little while. >> that's the question. how long -- i mean the president has been pounding the drum saying the consequences are
5:04 am
going to be severe. how long before they're real? >> a couple of weeks. they're not going to hit nobody around this table but people who need unemployment checks they're going to be cut in about three weeks to a month. we're going to see meat inspections not happening. it's not going to happen right away. it's going to be imkremental and people are going to go oh wait, this is happening. >> democrats are saying absolutely not. there will be that as part of this deal. when do they actually come together? is it when the consumer for example, starts to not have the meet in the grocery store that they'd like to see? >> i think so. the question is where is the pressure going to come? there's a much bigger issue about taxes and spending. it's not a part of what we've had in the last couple of weeks which is to find a deal to get
5:05 am
past this immediate effect of see question trags. they still have to have that big conversation, and you can imagine the situation in which republicans who have now held firm can say to their base look, we held firm we djts raise taxes on this immediate issue, but we still have this bigger conversation to have. but that's still a long way away getting some kind of agreement on those big issues of taxes and spending. >> john, as you've pointed out, there's been virtually no discussion on this issue in washington, which has been the whole situation of this sequestration deal that it would force a deal. if that's not happening, how can we expect a discussion at any point in time? >> well, right. that's exactly right. the sequestration was set up for everybody to focus on the big thing. the big thing is how do you arrange a budget in the time of scarcity. that conversation has been
5:06 am
totally absent while everyone has been debating when is it going to come. there are other choke points coming, the entire funding of the government that comes at the oechlkd march and we have another debt ceiling fight and those are going to be pressure moments that are even more serious than this one. as kai said there's kind of been a wolf crying issue with washington. they're always having kind of a freak-out and it's not as dire as everyone says, but the future debates about funding the government entirely and the debt limit, those are more dire economic cuts with those fights. >> of course, at the heart of this whole conversation is the deficit and how to reduce it and the idea behind these cuts was to force congress's hand and yet you're not getting debt reduction out of them. >> i think the point to realize is the deficit has been shrinking. it's lower than it has been a year ago and lower than two
5:07 am
years ago. the way we're doing this is going to wind up being more expensive. that's the fallacy of this whole thing. >> we appreciate you joining us. the roman catholic church is officially without a leader following the historic resignation and retirement of pope benedict xlvi. it's now up to the princes of the church the cardinals, to choose his successor. let's get the latest from allen pizzey in vatican city. >> reporter: the tradition-laden process of getting ready for the next pope begins with the vacant see apartment. the door was sealed. a symbolic red ribbon was placed across the door that nothing is to be disturbed. he'll be in charge until a new pope is elected. most other officials lose their
5:08 am
job. benedict is now hidden behind the walls of castel gandolfo summer residence of popes since 1616. they've been called to gather for monday for what are called congregations. informal meetings where they discuss the issues facing the church and begin to get an idea of who among them might be the man to succeed benedict. the days for the con calculate is expected to be announced next meech. chicago's cardinal francis george says there's a desire to move quickly. >> it is kind of a date imposed on us by the liturgical calendar. >> reporter: instead of the pope's image it will show apostolica. special stamps one of the most prized souvenirs went on sale yesterday. all are expected to be here on monday when the congregations
5:09 am
begin. but the power broking have begun in the better restaurants around the vatican. for v "cbs this morning," allen pizzey. for more on the new pope let's head back to vatican city and delia gallagher. good morning, delia. >> reporter: good morning. >> has it begun? what's the first step? >> reporter: as you heard the report in fact, the informal discussions have already begun. those take place at the lunches and dinners amongst the cardinals. what happens now is they go into these congregations, meetings which is more formal. they don't discuss names but they have an opportunity to suggest what type of person the next pope should be and what should be the priorities for the future of the church. it's important to know that these are 207 cardinals.
5:10 am
so even though those cardinals won't be voting in the sistine chapel, those that are over 80 years old, they have an opportunity to give a speech and see what the priority should be. so it's really their opportunity to let their voice be heard for those cardinals who will be doing the actual voting. >> it sounds like these informal meetings as you described them are where some of the real deal making could actually be taking place. what do we know about what's going on in the meetings right now? what's the meat and the context of them? >> reporter: well they're just discussions. they're discussions amongst the cardinals who, remember don't always have the opportunity to meet and talk face to face because they are in different countries. they have to decide on the names because once they get into the sistine chapel and the con agree zbags begins, there's no more time. they have to get in this week.
5:11 am
they'll have to actually name names and see who has support amongst whom because they have to reach a two-thirds consensus. so it's very important that at a certain point they actually get together and start deciding well, this person or that person, and see how the numbers fall. i mean at a certain point it is actually a numbers game to see who has the most support and who can actually be the candidate that will have a bit of unity so that the conclave doesn't go on too long because if it goes on too long it gives an impression that they can't make up their mind. so it's a very delicate balance. >> delia gallagher in vatican city. thanks delia. a little later we'll take a look at whether a new pope will be able to reform a church so engulfed in scandal. now we turn to a money-eating sinkhole. a giant sinkhole opened up east of tampa and swallowed a man sleeping in his bedroom. officials are warning now that the sinkhole is still dangerous
5:12 am
and it's likely to grow. we want to get the latest from gray son grayson of our affiliate wbst. >> reporter: there's been no change but experts expect more. more growth more collapse. the reality is even recovery crews may never find this house safe enough to re-enter. >> i didn't care. >> jerry bush didn't think. he just leapt into the sinkholes that moments before swallowed his brother jeff alive. he searched but found nothing. >> all you could see is the top of his bed, nothing else. i jumped in the hole. i thought i could hear him screamling linging for me and hollering for me. >> he pulled jeremy out of the sinkhole. knowing he couldn't save jeff
5:13 am
haunts him. >> i couldn't sleep because spending so much time with these people and wanting to know what was happening. >> reporter: engineers spent friday analyzing the ground surrounding the house, testing the density of the soil and mapping the area in 3-d. the hole is now almost 30 feet deep and it paints a precarious picture. >> the soil cannot hold the slope it has right now, so we do expect the sinkhole to grow. >> reporter: we learned he was not going to stay here long a few months. in fact today was supposed to be the day he was supposed to move out. for "cbs this morning saturday," i grayson in florida. concern over the wide use of the chemical called bpa. it's commonly found in plastic containers and linings of food and beverage cans. it can get into food and studies have tied it to a wide range of health concerns.
5:14 am
now scientists have linked bpa to an increased risk of asthma. dr. kathleen donahue is the lead author. good morning. >> good morning. >> first of all, what is bpa? >> it's a chemical used to make hard plastics like poly carbonates. >> and why are children so vulnerable to it? because they eat more than adults do and most of our exposure is through our diets. >> i mean are we talking excessive exposure here or just moderate exposure going to affect people? >> so our study found that routine low doses of exposure were associated with increased odds in wheezing. >> we've been seeing this increase in as mathma among young people. do you think it's tied to it? >> our studies suggest that it might be. it's the first one.
5:15 am
we'd like to see the results replicated in another one and we'd like to confirm that it's a cause but our study suggests that it might be one of the environmental exposures that may have contributed to the increase in asthma over the years. >> does it look like adults are being affected or the risk is more with kids? >> our study is lived to children but we didn't look into adults, so i can't speak to that. >> how about the pregnant women? are they passing it down to the fifiee fetus? >> they do. they transfer it through the bloodstream and placenta to the fetus. >> last year the government banned bpa in baby bottles and sippy cuts. do you think it's going to cut? >> if other studies confirm that this is in fact a true cause, then, yeah it might reduce asthma cases. >> in the meantime for people hearing results of studies like this, what are your recommendations for how people should go about serving their
5:16 am
children and even the pregnant women? >> sure. so they have recommendations on their website based on this. use less canned foods. use stainless steel and to avoid plastics number 3 or 7. >> one of the things i never look at but you're telling me i should be looking at it. >> before you're buying the product as opposed to when you're tossing it into your grocery cart. >> dr. donahue, thanks so much. appreciate it. >> thank you. it is now 19 minutes after the hour. we want to turn to craig from wfor in miami for our very first check of the weather this morning. >> good morning. looking pretty good nationally. wnter holds on in the northeast. lingering snow showers and a cloudy cold day in florida.
5:17 am
the big problem today is going to be over the tennessee valley region where snow work its way to the eastsoutheast. you can see snow anywhere from 2 to 4 inches. in terms of temperature, it's going to be cold. especially tonight you're going to need to protect plants. it's getting late in the year for 20s and 30s. a little bit cold for this time of year. frost advisories even into parts of florida. that's a look at your national weather. here's what's going on with your local forecast. in the next half hour we'll take a look at the national temperatures in the west with which are warm. today is the national day of unplugging.
5:18 am
chances are when you woke up one of the very first thing use did was reach for your cell phone or sit down at your computer to check facebook or twitter. a lopt of people seem tied to it. today's chance to disconnect at least today. here's michelle miller. >> reporter: there's no question we've evolved to be constantly plugged in. >> i saw the best minds of my generation distracted by texting, e-mailing, tweeting. >> reporter: but on friday night jeremy goldberg and company opted off the grid putting away all electronics for 24 hours. >> off. not standby. we all know it's the button up there, so stop it. do it. >> sorry. >> reporter: a recentnomo phobia causes panic. how do you find the balance? where's the equilibrium. >> the key is hey, if god
5:19 am
needed a day of rest maybe that's not a bad idea for us either. >> reporter: jeremy is a thinker of rebooter. three days ago they came up with this main fess toe which encourages people to shut down their devices once a week. now the brainchild of dan roman has turned into a national day of unplugging. even heavyweight arianna huffington is unplugging. >> multitaskers are inexclusively using enormous fractions of their brain. >> reporter: he shows how it affects the brain. >> we were stunned because people who think they're getting more done by doing a lot at once are actually getting less done. >> so we asks our congregation to give up social media for three or four days.
5:20 am
>> reporter: in pittsburgh the reverend william f. curtis has his own take on the sa both manifesto. >> it will be hard for me because i'm always on twitter. >> reporter: no matter who you are, unplugging seems to come from strength from a higher power. for "cbs this morning saturday," michelle miller, new york. >> i like this concept. >> i like it too, but here's how addicted this stuff i am to promote this story i actually tweeted out it was unplugging day. >> i think it will be interesting to see what happens when people study evolution. we're overstimulated. there's constant commotion. i'm curious to see a brain scan from now how does it differ from present day because of all this. >> i thought the point the gentlemen maine about how our brain responds to this was really, really interesting. >> nice work by michelle miller.

this is a hand written letter from a little girl with two sticks received by rangers at yosemite national park. >> she said she's a yosemite junior ranger who visited the park and accidentally took the sticks home with her. she said quote, i know i'm not supposed to take things from the park so i'm sending them back. please put them in nature. that's adorable. >> that's sweet. >> that's probably good parenting brks by the way. >> that's absolutely right. i can tell you that for sure. our top story this half hour, the church in crisis. whoever becomes pope benedict's
5:29 am
successor as leader of the world's 1.1 billion roman catholics faces an enormous challenge. can the church be reformed? >> we have a distinguished panel to discuss that. joining us are jim frederick, the international editor of "time" magazine, sister maureen kib ler, a catholic none and host of a public program interfaith voices and paul roche, a senior editor the huffing on the post. so night to have you all with us. we've been looking at vatican city this morning and looking at what's taking place there and what will come next. what do you think should come next, and can the church get there? can they make the types of reforms that are necessary? >> well, thingrng i think we're in a season of lent so this is a good time for the church to be reflective of what it means to be repentive of and how to create new life in the church
5:30 am
come easter. it's a very good season for italy turjit it lit lit urgically. having reported this, it seems to just get kind of worse and worse. the news has gotten worse and worse after scandal after scandal comes out. so i think we're ready for the next step. sorry, maureen. just one second. do you think the church is conscious that it needs to reform? >> i think it's an open question whether this college of cardinals perceives enough of a crisis that they want to change or reform. i mean certainly the child sex abuse scandals that have been going on for decades and have come to the floor in the past four to five decades are one
5:31 am
thing but more secular minded catholics or even protestants from others abortion sexuality, i'm not sure you're going to see a movement on that. this is a conservative bunch of cardinals pointed by pope paul john ii or pope benedict. >> i ask where are the women? where is the younger generation in the church? where are the married people? there's a whole swath of human experience that's unfortunately not represented in that conclave and needs to be. >> how do you make that happen? >> i'll tell you what i would hope for in a new pope. someone who does not take on a monarchical kind of role but calls on a new council of the church. not a council of bishops but a
5:32 am
council of thegod. this would include lay men and women as well as bishops from every continent of the world so they would come together and discern a future of the church. is there such a person? is there a pope joanhn paul xxiii, i don't know. >> i would love to see catholic nuns involved. >> i would too. >> is there one person and can one person make these -- this kind of change? >> well i don't think so but -- i think it has to be -- that's the reason i think it has to be the entire curia in rome. all of the cardinals have to realize this is a crisis we're in a moment of change. there's a few names that come to mind. o'malley was one who went to
5:33 am
boston at a very low point and tried to clean up their reputation, especially around sex abuse scandals there's an italian cardinal who has been known to reach tout atheists to your point and has been in dialogue and promotes interfaith dialogue, but it takes a individual. and i think it's going to take everyone at the table to realize it. >> you can't help but notice it's a long line of old men. >> that's right. it is. >> who are just by generation not prone to want to reform things. so you're basically -- it seems to me you're saying it can't necessarily come from the cardinals. iffite's not going to come from that group how is it going to happen? >> there's a large movement within this community, meaning a small and very devout and traditional catholic community that is saying it's okay if the catholic church gets smaller and
5:34 am
more devout. that might be the end game of this. there's a phrase of cafeteria catholicism, that you don't get to choose what you do and do not believe. this isn't just a matter of the catholic church being more pop popular popular. if we're going to be more unpopular, that's going to be. >> there are unsocial catholics. people are sick of that. they want a pope who speaks strongly for economic justice and for peace in the world and the church has very strong teachings in those areas. they'd like a reemphasis and that could help revive a church in crisis possibly. >> we have to leave it there, forgive me. thanks so much for being here. we could talk a long time. >> thank you to all of you sincerely. now we want to turn to craig sayser from miami. good morning. >> a nice morning coming into
5:35 am
land with temperatures. a bit on the cool side. 20s and 30s and 40s in the southeast. cool by normal standards. highs in the 50s. 60s along the gulf coast and tennessee valley. the northern plains not too bad. the southwest, the place to be. temperatures in the 60s and 70s very nice. low humidity for phoenix, roswell, and texas. that's a look at your weather. here's the weather for your saturday. >> and in the next half hour we're going to talk about where you need to get the shovels and snow blowers ready once again. rebecca? >> all right, craig. thank you. coming up next, at just 23

5:40 am
was because of wisdom tooth pain but some are calling him a quitter. let's talk it over with mike walker senior editor of "golf" magazine and good morning. >> good morning. >> so what do you think it is? is it dental or mental? >> it's mental. i think he got frustrated and just left. >> this is add ba round after other bad rounds. >> he's yet to play a good round. it's building frustration. he had enough and walked off. you're not supposed to do that. >> how is the golfing world viewing this? momentum begets momentum and perhaps to the down side. do many people say this makes a lot of sense that he would leave? >> no. >> no. >> no. think with rory mcilroy he's generally liked on tour. it's not like people are killing

5:42 am
amount of pressure on him. >> oh definitely. tiger and rory are the rarity. most hit their stride in their 30s. yes, he's going to be somebody at the front of the game for a long time and think this will just be a blip in the past when we look at it. >> so we'll see him at the masters in a little under a month. >> yeah. i don't know if he'll be ready but we'll see him there. he hasn't played well yet. because he hasn't played well he hasn't played a lot. he keeps missing cuts. he'll be at the masters but what to expect not a lot right now. >> thanks mike. coming up next why some bosses are bringing work at home employees back to the office. >> we're going to be video conferencing all of our meetings. >> i'm not really comfortable. >> i think he's taking a bath right now. >> guys these are business suds. i'm not the only one.

guide:get what you want in life." it's great to have you both with us. deborah, how do you work at home and prove to your boss you're not a deadbeat? >> i think people productive in the workplace tend to be productive at home. you need to communicate, establish some guidelines for how you're going to do this. typically it works better if it's a formalized program as opposed to one off. >> they found 43% watch 2 v, 26% take nap, 24% drink alcohol. if you're a boss how do you monitor what your workers are doing? >> the bottom line is they're more productive. every study says home-based workers are more productive. >> why? >> because they there are less interruptions and you spend less time commuting. the real question to ask is what's going on at the office? why are they so unproductive? >> there's face time at the office.
5:48 am
what some people say is you have to build those relationships in order to make your work productive in the first place. >> it's true. some work has shown you're less likely to get promoted if you work at home on a permanent basis. think why this has touched such a nerve is a lot of people work from home maybe one to two days a week. that has a nice complement with the in-office space time and you have the best of both worlds. >> the key question is if you're working in the workplace, the question is does rebecca still work here. >> what about that guy anthony? whether you work in the home or at the office, you have to be physical. that's the key. >> you're losing the office politics game if you disappear. that's how you not get promoted. are there types of people who thrive working at home? >> i once got an e-mail from somebody going from an office to the home she wanted to sound like she still worked in the office. she made a tape of office sounds so when she was on the phone she
5:49 am
had that going. she found herself listening to the type in the afternoon because she was alobe. there will people for whom this is perfect. there are others who need to go to the office on a regular basis. but the problem with yahoo! the idea of eliminating it entirely is cutting off a key group of people who are your most productive group. that's not a smart move. surprising thing about yahoo! there's a lot of talk in the press about this being really a layoff. they're laying people off without announcing a layoff by saying telecommuters come back so this story isn't necessarily what you think it is. all of the trend is saying it's getting bigger. >> our objective is making everybody as successful as they can be. deborah, how do you make a work environmental at home that's the most successful. >> you want to have a set
5:50 am
workplace, designated place. you want to get rid of distractions. there's even programs to turn off your facebook and games. sometimes you need to do that in order to actually sit down and focus, but the fact is like we talked about there's more minutes done working when you're at home, because you're not commutes and doing all the other kinds of things. that's the big picture that we want to talk about. >> the two enemies of the home worker, the refrigerator and tv. >> turn it off and close it. thanks so much to both of you. coming up next, the real fish tale. we'll have the amazing story behind these pictures. you're watching "cbs this morning." the usual, bob? not today. [ male announcer ] bob has afib: atrial fibrillation not caused by a heart valve problem a condition that puts him at greater risk for a stroke. [ gps ] turn left. i don't think so. [ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but not anymore. bob's doctor
5:51 am
recommended a different option: once-a-day xarelto®. xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. like warfarin xarelto® is proven effective to reduce the risk of an afib-related stroke. there is limited data on how these drugs compare when warfarin is well managed. no routine blood monitoring means bob can spend his extra time however he likes. new zealand! xarelto® is just one pill a day taken with the evening meal. and with no dietary restrictions bob can eat the healthy foods he likes. do not stop taking xarelto® rivaroxaban without talking to the doctor who prescribes it for you. stopping may increase your risk of having a stroke. get medical help right away if you develop any signs or symptoms of bleeding like unusual bruising or tingling. you may have a higher risk of bleeding if you take xarelto® with aspirin products, nsaids or blood thinners. talk to your doctor before taking xarelto®
5:52 am
if you currently have abnormal bleeding. xarelto® can cause bleeding which can be serious, and rarely may lead to death. you are likely to bruise more easily on xarelto® and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. tell your doctors you are taking xarelto® before any planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto® tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. ready to change your routine? ask your doctor about once-a-day xarelto®. for more information including cost support options call 1-888-xarelto or visit

trying to get these pictures. they gather in thousands in a twisting cyclone. coming up next the link between whitey bulger and our president. we'll show you next. we're back. we've been talking about unplugging this morning. >> yes. >> you're not unplugging. you're headed out to the west coast. >> it's true. i'm looking forward to it. >> you're going to be visiting facebook? >> facebook and google next week and i'm very interested to see facebook this week has a big announcement coming up on thursday. they're going to be rolling out new technology and they're telling me the way facebook looks right now, it will be very change changed. we'll get a behind-the-scenes look. >> they're going to mess with my life then. >> exactly. >> i finally figured it out and they're going to change it. >> exactly. we'll do some news you can use
5:56 am
parts along with it. >> are you able to unplug craig? >> i don't think so. here i am in new york with you guys. i i've got to post this every bit i can. >> are you a tweeter? >> i'm a little bit of a tweeter but i do more facebooking. >> i would expect they would be interested in tornado chasing. >> it's very interesting. >> they're launched google doodle which is an interesting piece of new technology. one of the things i love about technology and that really interests me is this whole combination of worlds coming together. people in the art community, really smart engineers coming together to think about what the next thing is. we even have a 3-d printer coming up in our show where the possibilities are endless. >> it's cool that and mind-blowing. watching that thing work in the corner, it youyou're not going to
5:57 am
believe what you see. stay with us. we have more ahead. you're watching "cbs this morning."
5:58 am
nice looking day out there. i'm anthony mason. >> and i'm rebecca jarvis. >> they're called fat letters. they're intended to alert parents when their kids are gaining too much weight. some say the letters go too far. we'll take a house. "house of cards" on netflix. it's a political thriller with unique twists. all of the episodes were released at once and we're going to find out why from the show's creator. and that is a 3-d printer. it kourld be the biggest thing since the internet or the
5:59 am
assembly line. a real game changer and we're going to show you how it works. >> that is incredible. but first our top story this hour. the big federal spending cuts that have taken effect beginning today. they're the results of congress and the white house failing to reach a budget agreement and we want to get the latest from cbs white house correspondent major garrett and he's at the white house. major, it's great to see you. good morning. >> good morning. >> what happens next now that the spending cuts have started? >> two reactions. one is political and one is governmental. let's talk governmental. last night the president put in the automatic spending cuts in motion. federal agencies were told how much they have to cut their budget. as they do that they'll send out notices that they'll have to take forced time off without pay or lose overtime. where's this going to hit first? probably in the defense department and education. defense department has already canceled some maintenance
6:00 am
projects and there's some school districts that receive more than 50% of their allocations from federal dollars. they tent to be near military bases or native american bases. they may have to start lopping off school days almost immediately. those will be some of the most immediate effects. i talked about the political consequence. the political side is republicans and democrats are going to watch and see how the public reacts and see if they have to change course on the spending cuts or keep them. if all of this dysfunction has got you down i have one little ray of great news. yesterday in meeting at the white house, they agreed there will be no government shutdown at the ipd of the month. no government shutdown but the spending cuts are real and the public will begin to feel them probably within three to four weeks. >> major garrett at the white house. thanks so much major. >> don't let that dysfunction get you down. a huge and fast-moving wildfire about 60 miles east of los angeles is expected to be
6:01 am
fully contained. it began on thursday with gusting santa ana winds. 350 acres burned. there were no reported injuries. >> an unmanned spacecraft carrying supplies ran into trouble after a successful launch friday morning. the problem for the so-called dragon cargo ship was with the thrusters used to maneuver it. flight controllers managed to gain control of the spacecraft, but today's scheduled docking with the space station is now delayed until at least tomorrow. and a happy ending for two dolphins who strayed into shallow waters south of los angeles. they appeared to be stranded in a freshwater cove at huntington beach. they were successfully guided back to sea. they were worried the mammals would be in danger if they stayed too long. >> glad to see they're making it back safely. we want to take another look
6:02 am
at the weather with craig setzer from wfror miami. >> still snow showers from the lumbering pressure in the northeast. snow pushing into the ohio valley and tennessee valley and cool pressure. only dry spot in the southwest and there's snow in the upper midwest. in fact, fargo getting light snow today. this is the first in a series of storm systems. the bigger one comes tomorrow into monday. anywhere from 6 to 12 inches of snow. great falls even into mankato. here's a look at the weather for your saturday.
6:03 am
and in the next half hour our shout-out city where it's typically sunny and warm. i'll have more on that coming up. anthony? >> all right, craig. thanks. our top story this half hour, behind the capture of mob boss whitey bulger. he was on the run for 16 years and near the top of the fbi's most wanted list. and like bonnie & collide he became a hero. >> his name is james bulger. they called him whitey because he had blond hair when he was a kid. he eeventeventually grew up to become boss of the notorious irish mob in boston. >> whitey bulger was behind a string of murders. some were murders that he ordered. some were murders that he participated in. >> reporter: senior correspondent john miller.
6:04 am
>> he basically recruited an fbi agent agent and i'll give you information. at some point the music stopped and he decided to go on the run. >> reporter: in 1995 bulger disappeared, living his life on the land living with his girlfriend cathy greig all staying one step ahead of the law. >> if you look at the most wanted he probably fell right behind osama bin laden. >> reporter: in 2011 the fbi decided to put out a public service announcement. it worked. a woman in iceland saw the psa in a news report and recognized bulger and greig as her former neighbors in santa monica california. the fbi finally had their man. at 81 years old he was grayer slower, and more bald. but after 16 years as one of america's most wanted the fascination with whitey bulger
6:05 am
had only begun. for "cbs this morning saturday" i'm seth doane. >> and joining us now is dick lair, a former reporter of "the boston globe." his first book entitled "black mass" stars johnny depp. his newest book is "whitey:the life of notorious boss mob." you talked about whitey making one big mistake, befriending a neighbor. what happened exactly? >> the neighbor was the icelandic woman you mentioned in your set up. they shared an interest in cats and became acquaint answers on the streets of santa monica caring for cats but whitey left an indelible impression on the woman from iceland whan she
6:06 am
happened to express admiration for obama. he's a racist. he believes in separate and unequal and he flipped out on her. >> she never forgot that. >> she never forgot that. so when they did that psa announcement in june of 2011 about katharine greig, she recognized her and their shared interest in tiger the tabby cat but also she had -- that was the guy that was ranting on barack obama. >> it stood out so much to her that that's what ultimately led her to contact the police after she saw that psa. one of the interesting things, and you mention thad in your book. when he assumes the identity of charlie gasco. he's assuming the identity of a guy that's not that powerful doesn't live extraordinarily well. when we think of mob bosses we think these are the guys that live beyond everyone else. what was it about whitey bulger that let him behave more like an ordinaire man? >> that's a great question. that's the kind of thing we
6:07 am
explore in our autobiography. here he is a crime boss and used to killing people and living high. how can he flip that switch to become charlie gasco. i think it has a lot to do with being in control, catch me if you can. when he was a crime boss in boston, material and showiness wasn't his nature. sure he liked nice things but it wasn't over the top. so i think it was more with him it was about they can't catch me, they count catch me in boston. they can't catch me now. i can assume now the new mask of collarly gasco and live the good life in santa. >> it was actually what he did with the fbi. >> absolutely. i think history is going to show he was a leading crime figure
6:08 am
for 2 tthe 20th century. he had quickly become an informant for the fbi and then he harnessed the power. the boston office was corrupted by him and he became a shield for him. they were his personal security force force. that's the historical marker. we're talking about the nation's top law enforcement agency. >> really fascinating stuff. thanks for joining us. >> thank you. appreciate it. up next most parents want more communication from their kids' school but do fat letters take it too far? you're watching "cbs this morning." >> oh.

school officials in several states have adopted a tactic in trying to bring obesity under control. they're sending home fat letters based on their body mass index. >> now there's a push in massachusetts to stop sending these letters. let's talk it over with dr. jen hartstein, a child psychologist and lee woodruff a cbs contributor. we're going to try to keep the fisticuffs down. >> we're ready. >> we'll start with you. what do you think of it? >> as a public health measure, there's merit. but if you were a parent getting a letter by saying by the way, the bmi body max index,
6:13 am
height-to-weight ratio is too high they're in this obese cat category category, fix it, what if they're doing anything? it can be very shaming. it can create a lot of problems and worry, so it borders on the line of problematic. >> the american heart association say they approve of this measure and it's because one of three kids is overweight or obese. it's three times what it was in 1963. and when you look at the public health system, some people don't have access to it still but every kid is in school. >> and i think here's the issue as a parent. it's not the intent. the intent is a wonderful intent. i think it's the way the message is delivered. as a parent how do you not get that letter to the parent or guardian of. >> if you got that letter how would you react? >> i would probably feel like where's the personal touch here. my children are in a public
6:14 am
school and i feel like there are a lot of channels for communication. there are e-mails, teachers, and i realize every town has a different picture. it's a matrix. i think the form letter, the other part of the form letter is all the other kids ultimately find out. it zbik british columbias an area for ridicule. >> patients s parents gossip and bully or they talk about it on the phone and the kids hear. we know that overweight children are bullied more than underweight children. >> is it about putting it down on paper and making it sort of a official document? >> i don't know that there's any followup. it's like here you go take care of it. >> oi don't know that there are any solutions. here's the problem, see ya. that create as lot of stuff on the back end. >> as a parent are grades different? for example, let's say as a
6:15 am
parent you get a report card which would never happen as a parent, you, lee, that you get an "f" for example, don't kids and families and people in the community find out about that as well and how is that different from from this? >> it's a really good point. i think kids do but in the area of grades and, jeb, you may have a different feeling about it there are solutions. you stay off class. you work harder. mom helps you to, you know bring up your grade. just throwing a letter out that says you're overweight is to me not a great way to deal with what's a sticky situation. >> it doesn't count for muscle mass or any genetic issues. so do you f you're getting a letter saying you're not doing this right, which is how it might be interpreted, but what are you doing about it but i'm not giving solutions. >> what should they do about it? >> i think it would be a great if they said we're concerned
6:16 am
about this could you come in and have a meeting. some are putting medical clinics in their school so there's greater access to care and resources. i think the more personal we make the issue, the better we can handle it. >> every school has a teacher conference. why not make that the opportunity to have the school nurse step in or phys ed teacher. we do have a statement from the school system which says we are enabling parents to opt out of this system do. you think that improves it? >> no. because i think a lot of parents, in especially the underserved populations don't know that they can opt out. i think a lot of parents do not know how to do that. who's your contact, how are you reaching out. i don't think parents realize they can opt out or they thank might get in trouble if they do opt out and it gets taken out on on the kid. it's not the greatest way to
6:17 am
impart tough information. >> the bottom line is both of you don't like it. >> we'd like public health and we'd like them to take it more personal. >> thanks for being here. coming up next meet "the house of cards," the creator of them. the hit on netflix that has everyone watching. you're watching "cbs this morning." stay with us. overmany discounts to thine customers!

episodes debuted all at once on netflix and bill willeau willimon is the creator and expert on "house of cards." he's got a background in politics and is experienced in stage and film. your background, you were running campaigns before this. >> not running them. i was working on them. i worked on schumer's campaign hillary clinton bill bradley and howard dean. i was pretty low on the totem pole. >> but you took that and worked with it. you were a huge success. >> it's a big surprise. you know we didn't know whether everyone would watch it in 13 hours straight or whether anyone would watch it at all. we've been thrilled with the response and we've had a lot of marathon watchers. it seems like it's an experiment in this case that worked out. >> when you started watching this, was it your aim to put
6:22 am
this on netflix or what were you expecting? >> when i first teamed up we didn't know where our home would be at. netflix became our partner two years ago and i'm really glad they became our home. >> what was the appeal of netflix? >> they offered us two seasons and offered us almost complete creative control. those two things made for an offer that we couldn't refuse. >> you mentioned david fincher who was the director. it was a new thing and a lot of people before it became big said it was a big risk. did you see it that way? >> any time you embark in any artistic endeavor it's certainly a risk. but certainly for netflix, it was a big risk but the great companies take big risks. if you look at facebook if you look at amazon, if you look at google, if you ooh look at apple, they've all taken big
6:23 am
risks along the way. sometimes they stumble. sometimes they pay off. i think this is going to pay off for netflix. >> what influenced your releasing all episodes at once? do you see a trend there? >> i think that's what they're doing. whether it's on demand or other services. people want to decide wleb they watch their shows, how they watch them and on what devices. so we were in the right place at the right time in a position to skploid exploit that. if it has. been us, it would be others. >> i was thinking about my habits with netflix. if you're not cut off on a show all of a sudden you get 20 episodes and watch them over three days which is what i did with "house of cards." does it bother you that some are not savoring it? >> i have no preference. binge watching is not required. if you want to spread it out over 20 or 25 weeks, that's up to you. if you want to watch it in two
6:24 am
days that's up to you. i hope it works so both ends of the spectrum. >> i like my shows on an i.v. drip. i look to plug them in and run them through. you have a political back groound as grounld as rebecca mentioned. nobody comes out looking good. the lead guy very calculating, kevin spacey. talk about him. >> he does make an argument for tends justifying the means at a time when congress is choked by gridlock and you see the administration that's struggling to get its agenda forward. he gets things done. so he might be doing it for incredibly self-serving reasons but at the same time he makes progress and i think a lot of people find that at this particular time quite attractive. >> beau willimon great stuff. >> thanks for having me. still ahead, something that
6:25 am
will amaze you, 3-d printing. president obama said in his address it will revolutionalize how we make everything. that's coming up. you're watching "cbs this morning." >> beau, how much d did your own personal experience in the political world influence these characters? >> quite a bit. you write what you know. as i mentioned earlier, i was pretty low on the totem pole but i had friends in high places. i knew what was going on in the inner sanctum so i had access to that. i had friendships with people making a career in politics and there was a lot of roll up the sleeves, open up the book get to the website and do your research. so it was a mixture of all those things. >> the way it's portrayed in "house of cards" it's like a big chess game.
6:26 am
and kevin spacey playing it out and he's nine steps of everybody. he sets people up to fail so that he can succeed over and over again. >> are politicians that ruthless? >> exactly. >> i think anyone who achieves higher office, heads have to roll along the way, even those we find to be quote/unquote inspiring, you look at their history and they even had to beltre people and do tough things to make it to the next ruk on the ladder. everyone's guilty of that to a degree. our greatest leader brayabraham lincoln had a degree of ruthlessness that we tend to sweep under the rug but it's there. in terms of staying nine steps ahead, yes, he's always staying nine steps ahead. but politics is like jazz. it's about responding to what is done in an expert way. >> we've got to go.

he's ruthless but he plays the game. stay with us. you're watching "cbs this morning."
