Jed Horne, metro editor of The Times-Picayune, joined me this afternoon on to talk about “Breach of Faith,” his insider’s view of the Hurricane Katrina disaster in New Orleans, which was just published today.

We talked about what did (and didn’t) happen inside the Superdome, how Ray Nagin managed to get re-elected Mayor, whether people in the Ninth Ward still believe that the levee was blown up, and the “heckuva job” done by ex-FEMA director Michael Brown and Gov. Kathleen Blanco.

Horne also summed up the conditions in New Orleans now, which vary from good in the tourist-heavy areas to horrible in the poorest neighborhoods (where they are still finding bodies and clearing the streets).

Listen to the conversation here.
