"Than him, while he was sailing through recovery. Just two weeks after leaving the hospital, Chris's son Ben came into the world, and it seemed like everything was going to be okay. One of the great days after the surgery was watching Mark meet Ben for the first time. To see Mark holding Ben was just incredible. It was everything that we did the surgery for. Christmas was fantastic because we knew that what we had done allowed Mark and Kelly to have Christmas with their baby at home. It was probably the best present we could have had. I guess we gave the present to ourselves. But I remember sitting back Christmas night thinking we are so blessed to have this feed. We thought we had it. We thought we did it. Ultimately, the liver Chris donated to his best friend failed and Mark required another liver transplant. But sadly, mark's body rejected that organ too. And without a healthy liver, mark could not survive. And on March 25th, 2001, Mark passed away. The last day at the hospital was really rough. And I just remember going into his room and he just looked a lot better to me. He looked like he was at peace. I just wanted him to know that I was proud of our friendship and proud of how hard he fought. Unfortunately, the way all this worked out, I wasn't able to save Mark and that's something that's still hurts me every day. At the same time, I've kind of made it one of the goals of my life to let his son know all about who he was in life, people are delivered to you for a reason. Our friendship Chloe made us better people. I think everybody who encountered Mark muha is a better person for knowing him. Well, Chris is a newspaper reporter who wrote about mark's life and death in a special series where the Chicago Sun-Times. And isn't that the way everybody should be leading their life so that everybody who knows you is better for it? And that was kind of the point. I mean, we had talked about the story in the hospital a little bit to the point where we thought that the last chapter would have a picture of us and our sons and we'd be holding them and that would be the way to end it. And it didn't work out that way, but I think Mark would be glad knowing that the story has helped a lot of people become organ donors, and that's kind of why we're happy to be here talking with you today. And so would you do it again? I'd do it again in a heartbeat. Even we know a donor has died since I did the surgery, but I think if the procedure standardized this procedure can save lives and I go, when I go, I know I go doing all I could do to help my friend. And then what happens to your liver? You've completely recovered. Yeah, I'm regenerated and running around trying to chase in 18 month old around that. And her and occasionally her kid, which I might add is a little bit tougher right now. Kelly Kelly is marked widow. And so how's your son? He's great. He's actually a lot like my husband. He has the same Chris said my husband had a magnetic personality. He really, my son is very much the same. And one of the things you're hoping is that your sons will mirror the friendship that you guys had, correct? We had talked about, I have this idea that they're going to go to college, well they're going to go to Stanford and be roommates. So let's go to wine country. Yes. So. But we have high hopes for them and we hope they can be a little bit like us. And thank you. Thank you, Kris, Jennifer and Kelly. Well, for Shelley, Brady. She would do anything for her friend Bill Porter, even by him a house. I first met bill Porter when I was 17 years old. I was a senior in high school and Bill Porter had placed an ad looking for someone to do deliveries. It was a summer job for Shelley, but it gave her a friend for life. Bill Porter was a door to door salesman who needed help. Despite a disability that limited use of his arms and a back that ached every day, he could still do most things for himself. One day I finally had to ask, Bill, tell me about you. I did finally learn that he was born in 1932 with cerebral palsy and that in the early 1950s when he had graduated from high school, he was told by the state of Oregon that he was unemployable. He refused to listen to that and instead he chose to listen to his mother who told him that he could accomplish anything that he set his mind to. He was determined to follow in his father's footsteps as a salesman, a job nearly impossible for a person with his physical challenges. For nearly 50 years, bill's been pounding the pavement, selling household products, door to door in Portland. His mother would help him finish getting dressed. He walked almost ten miles a day. He became the top selling employee in his region by pushing ahead beyond his limitations. Every day is a little bit of a trial for Bill, but he doesn't like to dwell on the challenges that he has in his life. Bill has a way of knowing his limits and then reaching beyond them. Over the years, Shelley went to college, got married, and had 6 children. She still helps her friend Bill make his deliveries. I couldn't get along without her. We went from employer employee to friends to extremely close friends. He never needed a friend more than in 1985. Bill's beloved mother Irene became ill, developed Alzheimer's and had to be placed in a nursing home. It was the first time in his life he had been separated from his mother. It was devastating for Bill. I think that there comes a time in a friendship when you're just your heart opens up and you are absolutely there for them for anything. And I think that that's what it became with Bill and I after his mother had passed away. Without his mother, Bill had to find someone else to help him get ready for work. His days began at four 45 a.m. so he could take a bus to a downtown hotel where the bellhops helped him button his cups and fasten his tie. And a few steps away in a shoe shine shop another friend tied his shoes just like his mother did. Then he was ready for work. After 12 hours on the street, he'd return home to type his orders. In 1994, Bill nearly lost a home, his mother had left him. By then, Shelley knew there was nothing she wouldn't do for him. He had some back taxes that he hadn't paid, and I found out that he had canceled his medical insurance because he couldn't make those payments. And I realized the Dire Straits that he was in. We could not imagine him losing his home. I felt like it might break him. My husband and I talked it over, and we asked him if we could buy the house so that it could pay off his debts and that he would then be able to live there and not have to worry about ever losing his home again. And if I have to go out and get a job at the local fast food place, then that's what we'll do. I definitely feel, I have learned so many lessons from Bill and they have helped me to become a better mom. But I think about how he doesn't look at life as one filled with challenges. Instead, he looks at the obstacles that come his way as stepping stones. I think you're my angel Bill..

"To hear it, okay? State of California Way the jury in the above entitled Cause. Find the defendant Scott Peterson, guilty of the crime of murder of Lacy Peterson dated November 12 2000 for four persons, Remember, That was a story that was covered by virtually every media outlet around the globe. It was a glow. Yeah, it was a global story for weeks, so sentenced to death for killing his wife in 2004. Scott Peterson was and then there wasn't Hell, and yesterday a ruling from the California Supreme Court, saying that death penalty cannot stand will not stand, and some people were surprised by that. Here is ABC News chief legal analyst Dan Abrams. Laying out the case that was made by attorneys. The defense has argued that prosecutors should not have been able To admit into evidence dog scent evidence tracking evidence because they say it's unreliable and it shouldn't have been admitted. In the context of the case, Okay, said evidence was one thing that overturned this another had to do with the jury. So KFBK legal analyst Bill Porter Nova Says the unanimous California Supreme Court decision sided errors in the jury selection for this case. The judge bounced all the jurors who said they were strongly opposed to the death penalty, even though they also said they could set that aside and fairly decide the case. So Peterson was sentenced to death for murdering his wife and their unborn child. He has remained on death row in San Quentin since 2000 for all death penalty sentences are automatically appealed to the California Supreme Court. So now he will have to go through it an additional sentencing a new sentencing trial. We need to make this very clear this ruling on Ly Kristina had to do with the death penalty phase of the of the trial. His conviction on murder stands that has not been overturned, so This. This may change his life. In that he wouldn't be on death row any more, depending on what would happen in subsequent cases, right? But you know now is that going to be life without the possibility of parole of his life? You know who knows or two and do prosecutors say Okay, we want open up this can of worms and get back in there and try to get the death penalty reinstated. Which they could do, But do you spend that kind of money? I mean, I don't know. I don't know where that gold. It'll be interesting to see how this case plays out.

Up Your passwords and let them see and received the message because when award season come around, we continue to be overlooked because we want to keep a secret that we're watching something like a ballroom spectacle from nineteen eighties. But yet I I I think that's half the battle because I think that a lot of people are watching polls, they are watching the.

with everybody he gets pleasure from it he takes each argument down to its basis level and then he wins very very difficult to argue with somebody the way he fights so in some weird sense this guy who

complex cases in areas of organized crime narcotics computer crime and all manner of white collar crime before that he served for several years as a deputy district attorney and sucked a county so welcome back to okay if BK thank you thank you was so I watch much of this testimony this morning with US ambassador Gordon Simon and really depending on who you're getting your information from they will quote different things from the testimony for instance the Republicans and maybe were more Republican right leaning based news agencies will say when someone said to the president what do you want from Ukraine he put it out there just like that the president said I want nothing I want no quid pro quo tell president the Lynskey to do the right thing on the other hand you have this which is making headlines I know that members of this committee have frequently frame these complicated issues in the form of a simple question was there a quid pro quo as I testified previously with regard to the requested White House call and White House meeting the answer is yes just a brief interjection for from me one of my favorite words in the English language is perspective my second favorite is context and that first bit about what do you want nothing nothing no quid pro quo was three days after the word got out okay this was not what was said prior you got the time line is what matters here doesn't have bill time line of course is very important yeah but you have to remember that sophisticated people that are doing things on the margins learned or some of them simply are instinctively aware that as you do something you're not supposed to be doing you have to simultaneously be doing something that fits the exact same behavior but it is okay to do so that you have all you have a plausible deniability for this thing that you're doing that you know you're doing wrong but on the surface it looks like you're doing something very normal as I say as a prosecutor and as a defense attorney I've met people who have that gift and it is frightening when used in a criminal matter it is imaginative when using a political manner here not to suggest that the guard to the president would know that he was doing anything wrong of course but it everything he was doing was clearly designed to back up Rudy Giuliani based on ambassador silence testimony and then guiliani is out there running all the interference so the only as as ambassador song one testified today he put most of it on Rudy Giuliani as the guy doing this stuff and the only words he can actually quote coming out of the president our words like there was no quid pro quo is it cunning enough a is the president cunning enough to insulate himself from his own misdeeds by always having offers as we say a Michael Cohen a Rudy guiliani I think he is I think he has the instinct for it so while he probably did this quid pro quo business Gordon songlines discussion over today was not it was quid pro quo for that it wasn't quid pro quo for the military aid it was quid pro quo for a White House meeting and if it's a quid pro quo for a White House meeting that's official business for official business so it's
