New Orleans 2 Years After Katrina


On the second anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, I had Jed Horne back on my KMOX show this afternoon to talk about how New Orleans is doing. He's the former metro editor of the Times-Picayune and author of "Breach Of Faith," a definitive narrative on what the storm did to his town.

I asked him what people in New Orleans think of President Bush, Mayor Nagin, and Governor Blanco. We also talked about why the levees still haven't been rebuilt to a safe level, how the economy of the city is doing, whether people who went back to New Orleans have stayed, and how important the Saints were last season to the area's morale.

Listen.
