CBS Sunday Morning on 21 January 2018

CBS Sunday Morning on 21 January 2018 had an interview with Jordan Peele, who expressed his views on Donald Trump as a racist.

The "moment of nature" showed scenes from Myakka River State Park near Sarasota, Florida. The clip did not mention the Canopy Walkway, completed in 2000. The Canopy Walkway is itself 25 feet above the ground and extends 85 feet through the tree tops above the Myakka floor and nearby is an the Observation Tower, some 74 feet up.

Also, the DeLorean on almanac and President Zimmer of the University of Chicago.

Of Zimmer:

Robert Zimmer, president of the University of Chicago, told Braver, "Discomfort is an intrinsic part of an education."

Last school year, the university sent a letter to incoming freshman that said, in part:

"[W]e do not support so-called 'trigger warnings,' we do not cancel invited speakers because their topics might prove controversial, and we do not condone the creation of intellectual 'safe spaces' where individuals can retreat from ideas and perspectives at odds with their own…"

Braver asked, "Why did the university have to put out a letter like that in the first place?"

"Part of the way we operate is that we're a place where there's constant open discourse, constant expression and constant argument," Zimmer replied.
