Hour 1:           What’s the best way to recover and ensure appropriate compensation from natural disasters, human-caused tragedies, and acts of violence? Well talk this hour with Kenneth R. Feinberg, administrator of the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund, the fund for victims of the Virginia Tech shootings, and others. Feinberg writes about his experiences as a mediator in his new book “Who Gets What: Fair Compensation after Tragedy and Financial Upheaval” (PublicAffairs, 2012).

    Thank you both for amazing insight to a complex issue.  While I was aware that such support existed, I did not have any real understanding of how it worked.  You have shown a personal compassionate side of many sad and tragic stories. 

    I was particularly touched by the story of the man who wanted to share a video of his wedding.

    I admire and commend you for the impartial approach to these victims.
