When it comes to New Orleans' supporters, Harry Shearer might not come immediately to mind — but he's one of its most vociferous voices of support. Speaking of voices, he's also of course the man who voices many of our most beloved Simpsons characters, and he's wishing we'd all be a little less like Mr. Burns, and a little more like Ned Flanders when it comes to characterizing the plight of that city. We'll talk to him today about the city that he's been a part-time resident of for the past 11 years, and its progress, two years after Katrina.
