It will be five years to the day, this Sunday, that Hurricane Katrina swept in and ravaged the Gulf Coast. All this week we'll be looking at how communities and local culture has changed since the hurricane. Mississippi recieved less attention than New Orleans, but the state was devastated when the hurricane hit. Mississippi saw over 200 dead in Katrina's wake, with over 5,000 homes destroyed and $125 billion in estimated damage.

We speak with Mayor A.J. Holloway of Biloxi, Miss., and Mary Perez, a reporter with the Sun Herald.

Guests:

Mayor A.J. Holloway and Mary Perez

Produced by:

David J Fazekas

Listening to your show, day after day, on the issue of the erection of the downtown Mosque, one can't help but notice, that (as in today's coverage (8/24/10), that skew your coverage of guests, or only interview guests with a pro-mosque point of view.

You have, in effect, become the FOX News of the left. Actually, strike that. FOX interviews others with opposing points of view.

Proud of that?
