I should say something about Levon and The Band, I guess. I still remember coming back to the States from Vietnam. San Francisco. Downtown somewhere, can't remember which theater anymore, there was a movie, just came out, and it was called Easy Rider. Peter Fonda and Harley choppers from the pictures outside. Had to see it. The signature song from that movie that's never left my mind was The Weight. Still gives me special feelings to remember it. I don't need to hear it played anymore, its in my mind whenever I want to hear it, but I love to.

The home page for CBS Sunday Morning is

Check on Monday afternoon to see what stories from that Sunday's show were posted on the home page by CBS. I think they even sometimes post the closing wild life segment. Stories that CBS does not post there sometimes are loaded by users or CBS on youtube (sorted by date to bring most recent stories to top) :

Why the Web of Life is Dying...

Could you survive with just half of your organs? Think about it. What if you had just half your brain, one kidney, half of your heart, one lung, half a liver and only half of your skin? It would be pretty hard to survive right? Sure, you could survive losing just one kidney or half of your liver, but at some point, losing pieces from all of your organs would be too much and you would die.
