Byron Pitts & Ray Nagin

With the anniversary of Katrina just days away, I had CBS newsman Byron Pitts on my KMOX show this afternoon to talk about the piece he'll have on "Sixty Minutes" this Sunday, in which he walks through New Orleans with Mayor Ray Nagin. Hizzoner had one particularly shocking statement regarding cleaning up New Orleans in the storm's aftermath compared to the cleanup of Ground Zero since 9/11. We talked about that, how the rebuilding of the city is going, and whether they're getting the federal aid they were promised.

Listen to the conversation here.
