"Bye-bye paradise, it was nice while it lasted." The Paradise Park trailer park in Highlands, NJ remains a jumble of ruined homes with little or no repair work in evidence three months after Sandy.

The Small Business Administration is granting loans to businesses in hard-hit coastal communities damaged by Sandy. WNYC’s Robert Lewis talks about a ProPublica and WNYC investigation into money going into vulnerable coastal areas. Plus: Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) on a new gun trafficking bill; Max Boot’s new book on current and future insurgencies; a road trip has lessons about gun culture; and what kind of calculation do you make about whether to work for free or not?
