Hurricane Katrina literally hit close to home for NPR and ABC news commentator Cokie Roberts. "All 11 houses in the Roberts family compound outside Gulfport, Miss., were destroyed," the Philadephia Inquirer reported. "I spent a huge amount of my life on that piece of property," Roberts told the paper. "It's very much home."
