CBS Sunday Morning cover story on 22 July 2018 is "How Rude!"

Martha Teicher did the cover story on Sunday Morning on July 22, 2018 titled "How Rude!," with a heavy dose of recent
political commentary.

In the following "Face the Nation" show, former secretary of state John Kerry was asked to respond to comments made by
President Trump about former Vice President Biden during an interview with CBS anchor Jeff Glor:

In an exclusive interview with "CBS Evening News" anchor Jeff Glor, the president said he would hold Vladimir Putin accountable because he's Russia's leader. Glor also asked him about the 2020 presidential election.

Here is a part of their exchange:

JEFF GLOR Let me ask you about 2020.


GLOR: Who do you think your Democratic opponent will be? Joe Biden says he'll make a decision by January.

TRUMP: Well, I dream, I dream about Biden. That's a dream. Look, Joe Biden ran three times. He never got more than 1 percent and President Obama took him out of the garbage heap, and everybody was shocked that he did. I'd love to have it be Biden. I think I'd like to have any one of those people that we're talking about…You know, there's probably – the group of seven or eight right now. I'd really like to – I'd like to run against any one of them, but Biden never by himself could never do anything. President Obama took him, made him vice president and he was fine. But you go back and look at how he succeeded in running, when he ran two or three times, I don't think he ever break -- broke one. He was at the one or less level, 1 percent or less level.


Kerry declined to respond to the question asked, but did indicate Trump needed to address more significant issues.

David Pogue did a story on the birth of Intel, which was incorporated on July 18, 1968. Noyce and Moore were mentioned, but there was no discussion of the story of the traitorous eight. Noyce was credited with inventing the integrated circuit, with no discussion of the debate about "who invented" the IC, or the patent wars thereon. There was mention of the quotes "don't be encumbered by the past" and "only the paranoid survive."

The choice for Almanac was unusual, July 22, 1933, which marked the date of landing of Wiley Post at Roosevelt Field, following his round the world flight. Post had previously done a round the world flight, but in 1933 he completed the first SOLO flight.

The moment of nature was at J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge at Sanibel Island, Florida. Both an alligator and a snake were shown.
Of the history:

Jay Norwood Darling was instrumental in the effort to block the sale of a parcel of environmentally valuable land to developers on Sanibel Island. At Darling's urging, President Harry S. Truman signed an Executive Order creating the Sanibel National Wildlife Refuge in 1945.

The refuge was renamed in 1967 in honor of the pioneer conservationist. The refuge consists of over 6,400 acres of mangrove forest, submerged seagrass beds, cordgrass marshes, and West Indian hardwood hammocks. Approximately 2,800 acres of the refuge are designated by Congress as a Federal Wilderness Area.

The refuge was created to safeguard and enhance the pristine wildlife habitat of Sanibel Island, to protect endangered and threatened species, and to provide feeding, nesting, and roosting areas for migratory birds. Today, the refuge provides important habitat to over 245 species of birds.
