Hey everybody... Campbell Brown in tonight. Brian will be back in the chair on Monday.
Coming up tonight, a new report from the Department of Homeland Security has some troubling news about just how well we have (or have not) learned the lessons of 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina. The report found the most U.S. cities are not ready or prepared for disaster of any kind... natural or terrorism. The report did find that cities in hurricane zones were at least marginally better prepared than cities in less obvious danger. Homeland is also releasing details on individual cities. Tom Costello and Ron Mott will have reports tonight.
And more news on Iraq, both at home and abroad. The House of Representatives rejected setting a timetable for bringing the troops home. Politics played a huge role in this debate, but tonight we will look at whether this vote will have any bearing at all on what happens in November... with some suggesting that all that will matter come Election Day is what the situation looks like on the ground in Iraq.
Finally, we have been reaching out to viewers and soliciting ideas for our series about people who are "Making a Difference." Tonight, we'll bring you a great story about a teacher who rallied her students to raise enough money to save an old lighthouse in disrepair. This was a viewer idea... we loved it. So keep 'em coming. Just click here to send us your nominations via e-mail.
See you tonight.
