Aired 4/19/09

Tom Fudge: Given the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, why would any person in San Diego, who's doing well in his profession, move to New Orleans? That's actually a good question to put to Michael Bernstein. Michael is a professor of history and economics who was a dean at UCSD.

  • Michael Bernstein , provost and senior vice president of academic affairs for Tulane University, where he's also a professor of history and economics. Michael is a former professor and former dean of arts and humanities at UCSD.
