WASHINGTON--Photo Ops with celebs help draw attention to worthy topics otherwise not getting attention. On Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi co-starred with Brad Pitt to promote '"Make it Right," a project launched in 2007 to construct affordable and environmentally-sustainable housing for low-income residents of the Lower 9th Ward in New Orleans who lost their homes as a result of Hurricane Katrina."

Great idea!

Now lets network the idea in the building

industry, and let the professionals overview the

plans and specs for the zone, come up with the

most effective concepts, and broadcast the

building process on live streaming construction

radio. The public will love it, suppliers will

support it. The builders will build it.

Let's go a couple more steps and build a Waste to Energy Plant and produce Electricity and a by-product will create building blocks or walls for affordable housing. This process is Environmentally friendly with zero pollution and will stop the dumping in landfills.
