BETSY REED, Executive Editor of The Nation and editor of "Unnatural Disaster: The Nation on Hurricane Katrina." Betsy will talk about the vicious storm that lashed the Gulf Coast on August 31, 2005, but the deluge also laid bare an unnatural disaster -- social catastrophe caused by the governmentâ€™s callous indifference to the needs of the regionâ€™s most vulnerable residents. Katrina revealed how race and class can spell life or death in contemporary America.
