The news begins anew with "Studio B"...

Ever since Katrina hit, there's been plenty of food, water and medical supplies along the Gulf Coast. The problem has been getting that aid to the people who need it most. There have been reports of dozens of tractor-trailers packed with relief supplies that are sitting idle because the drivers haven't been told where to go. So has the U.S. learned from the mistakes made in Katrina's aftermath? James Carafano, homeland security expert at the Heritage Foundation, weighs in.

New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin announces that the Crescent City will begin to reopen to businesses this weekend and the first group of residents will be allowed to return to their homes on Monday. But is it too soon to return to the once-toxic city? We'll get insight from Jim Clarke, professor or environmental engineering at Vanderbilt University.

Real journalism: fair and balanced. That's why we're No. 1 — FOX News Channel.
