HOUR THREE For many poor New Orleanians, their homes are their only assets – and many are likely filled with toxins. Journalist Chris Strohm says entire homes are covered in oil from leaking refineries – we’ll get an environmental update from New Orleans. Today is New York’s Democratic Mayoral primary. While the debates have been mild, Al Sharpton’s late endorsement of Fernando Ferrer has stirred up some controversy in this relatively tepid race. We get our weekly dose of sports from the left with Wakeup Call sports commentator Dave Zirin. Frances Newman is now just one day away from execution by lethal injection – despite her pleas of innocence. We bring you an update on her case. And journalist Kevin Pina has been freed from a Haitian jail, after his arrest last weekend while covering a police search of the church of jailed priest Father Gerard Jean-Juste. We hear his call from inside the jail in Haiti. Mayoral Primary Today!

HOUR TWO The Department of Homeland Security is in charge of the rescue operations in New Orleans, but as the city empties, the Department has turned the evacuation into a military operation. To force people from their homes, the DHS is now starving people out – while swooping in to buy evacuated homes at rockbottom prices. We hear from correspondent Jeremy Scahill on the ground. Yesterday was the first day of the John Roberts confirmation hearings. We bring you the highlights. Roberts’ opinions on educational equity are likely to come up in this week’s hearings – he thinks that what he calls quote forced busing to achieve desegregation is no longer needed. Author Jonathan Kozol strongly disagrees, as he argues in his new book The Shame of the Nation: The Restoration of Apartheid Schooling in America. We get a preview.
