As hurricane force winds and pounding waves barreled down on America's eastern seaboard, Fox News was attacking President Obama and ignoring the storm, while MSNBC was covering the story, but spending a lot of time focused on Mitt Romney's severely conservative assertion that the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) should be dismantled and/or privatized.

How are you experiencing the storm tonight? Are you in harm's way, or watching safely on TV?  What's wrong with having for-profit companies take during federal emergencies anyway? Call us tonight at 646-929-2495 to let us know how you're doing.

Our guest for the first 20 minutes will be Dan Johnson of P.A.N.D.A — People Against the National Defense Authorization Act. He'll fill us in on progress he and the pandas have made of late.
