On tonight's show

Bill Wolff, executive producer for the Rachel Maddow Show, shares a preview of tonight's show - a look at Hurricane Irene and the damage that many parts of the eastern seaboard are now working to clean up, Rick Perry and his stance on Social Security and we'll examine Dick Cheney's new book. All of this and more with Melissa Harris-Perry who is live in New Orleans for us.
