Wednesday, August 30, 2006

On today’s show, the director of the National Center for Disaster Preparedness says that America is unprepared for large-scale disasters. Then, we’ll hear about two new novels: the first from comedian Rita Rudner, and the second by Anna Quindlen. Later on, soul legend Sam Moore, of Sam & Dave fame, will be here. And we’ll ask about the best way to nurture gifted and talented kids.

Irwin Redlener, the director of the National Center for Disaster Preparedness, says that five years after 9/11, and a year after Hurricane Katrina, America still hasn’t learned to plan for large-scale disasters. His new book is Americans at Risk.
