I walked for 5 miles in New York City one day last week. I fell in love with the place again! However, it is hard for me to travel anywhere anymore and not wonder what kind of man made or natural disaster could destroy a place. It's a sad fact of having experienced the not so good possibilities! It has also taught me to enjoy and embrace the moments that are good.

In a novel and ambitious effort to return New Orleans homeowners to their own neighborhood, an international consortium of architects led by film star Brad Pitt announced plans Wednesday to develop at least 150 storm-safe, environmentally sound houses in the section of the Lower 9th Ward reduced to rubble by a massive levee breach.

Working lot by lot instead of amassing huge development tracts, the project, dubbed Make It Right, will take applications from homeowners who want to rebuild their own properties with model homes now being designed, said Virginia Miller, a New Orleans spokeswoman for the project.

"Make It Right isn't buying big parcels of land," she said. "We don't have an interest in being a developer. We have an interest in building houses for people."

According to The Associated Press, two swarms have been found around Meraux since January. Odom says it isn't known how the bees arrived; they may have flown in from a ship or barge.
