According to Nola.com, the first half-dozen houses built by Brad Pitt’s Make It Right NOLA foundation are now complete — giving some thankful residents their first true homes in almost three years. 68-year-old grandmother Gloria Guy was one of those moving in and had nothing but praise for Pitt and the organization. “I thank God for Brad Pitt,” Guy said Thursday when reporters toured the first six homes Pitt and family visited on Monday and Tuesday. “I gave him a big hug, and I told him how much I appreciate all that he’s done for me and my family.”

Some of you may be tired of my fascination with this project, but to me, it’s a true representation of the power of celebrity to help those in need. These first six homes are but a fraction of the 150 planned for the Lower 9th Ward — all green, sustainable, and built to withstand winds in excess of 130mph. In other words, it’s housing as it should be for this part of the country. I find it incredible that three years later — it’s Pitt and company leading the charge on something like this and not the U.S. government. How is that possible?

Guys, extortion isn’t an effective form of vegan advocacy

Assuming we can extort people into respecting the lives of others makes no sense.
