This past Sunday, on the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, Hollywood star Brad Pitt appeared on “Meet the Press” discussing his affordable and environmentally advanced houses in New Orleans.

Pitt's work on this was truly brilliant. He worked with leading architects, civic leaders and investors and in making a major contribution to rebuilding New Orleans. This is the kind of project both liberals and conservatives should respect, citizen action for worthy purposes involving the private sector.

The “Meet the Press” segment brought together the worlds of political news and entertainment.

I wrote a column in Hollywood Today discussing Pitt's New Orleans project and other matters I will have much more to say about soon, such as the role of Hollywood liberals in the campaign and the role of entertainers supporting our troops.

For now, anyone who is interested can read my Hollywood Today column here.
