Close to 2,000 Katrina evacuees live in squalid conditions in a trailer park on the outskirts of Baton Rouge. Many say they can't return to their homes, even those that remain habitable, because landlords have raised rents by a factor as high as three.

Amy Goodman of Democracy Now went to visit the trailer park and here is her interview. By the way, Amy Goodman is my very favorite news person in America! She has more journalistic guts than all of the rest of them put together.
