Coming Up

September 1st Show

The latest reports from those following the path of Hurricane Gustav say the hurricane has made landfall southwest of New Orleans. The levees there are holding but the system is still vulnerable in some spots. For our first hour today, we'll check in with people still in New Orleans about what is going on there and a weather blogger will explain the science behind hurricanes and the path Hurricane Gustav will take later on. We'll close with a quick update on how the hurricane — and the news of Gov. Sarah Palin's teenage daughter's pregnancy — are playing at the RNC in St. Paul.

In our second hour, we'll talk about the art of winning — and losing — through the eyes of a little league coach, plus a sports writer will explain why winning should not be the only goal. At the end of the hour, we'll talk more about Hurricane Gustav with Chris Bynum, staff writer for the New Orleans Times Picayune and with Scott Cowen, the president of Tulane University.
