We've officially passed the period known as the Dog Days of Summer, but yesterday was National Dog Day, when American attempted to comfort ourselves by posting pictures of our precious pups. We did it to escape the painful news of the day, which included at least TWO shootings in which at least two people were killed, Life in America. Today, we'll deal with the aftermath, plus talk with Harvey J. Kaye and Howie Klein.

This week marks the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina's devastation of New Orleans. Part time resident Harry Shearer joins in to tell what he discovered about the reasons why New Orleans flooded while making his film, "The Big Uneasy".  Florida is in the crosshairs of Erika - so it's a perfect day for another dip into the Oy FloriDUH files with Deborah Newell Tornello. And just before we hit the air came the news of the shooting death of a TN news crew in VA live on the air. Shit storm, indeed.

As the racial divide in this nation (even among Dems) seems to be growing, I thought today was a good time to pull out a speech from Rev. Dr. William Barber. I spoke with him and about him often last year, after getting to see him speak a few times. We need a good dose of Barber-isms, so get ready. Also, Ted Rall with an update on his run-in with the LAPD that got him fired from the LA Times! And Huffington Post's Ryan Grim on Ferguson police still harassing journalists. Some things never change.
