Roberts can’t be “hot-shotting in New Orleans” like some kid

Philadelphia Inquirer
ABC’s Cokie Roberts tells Gail Shister that all 11 homes in the Roberts family compound outside Gulfport, Miss., have been destroyed. Roberts, a New Orleans native, has done several pieces on Katrina, but she won’t cover it on site. “It would be irresponsible for me to go. I need to… take care of my mother. I can’t be hot-shotting in New Orleans like some kid.”
