Brad Pitt, trying to Make It Right, almost gets it right

From slimy Las Vegas, we travel to sublime New Orleans, where actor Brad Pitt (yeah, that one) is having homes built for returning locals and perhaps others. The homes are cool and innovative, but they may not be what the folks had in mind...sigh.

Doncha hate it when you're trying to do something right and you get it wrong...? Hooray for Brad Pitt in any case. According to many locals, the article says, he's done more for the city's recovery than any gov't agency.

I've seen those buildings. They are unusual. They are way better than the stairways to nowhere that currently dot the 9th ward landscape. And I hope that in time, they also become a symbol of the commitment to rebuild after a devastating occurrence. [When the French settled in NO they built on the high ground. These areas did not suffer from the calamity].

No good deed goes unpunished.
