Are you ready? Homeland security chief Tom Ridge has started a new program called Ready, as in, ready for a terrorist attack.

Hes encouraged Americans to put together an emergency kit, have an emergency plan and be informed about what might happen in a chemical, biological, or nuclear attack. Are you following the recommendations? How well has the federal government been dealing with the fear factor? We speak to the Director of Risk Communication at the Harvard Center for Risk Analysis, a psychiatrist who has been helping people deal with their fears, and you.
