    I love both Ellen and Brad, but they also seem to forget that it was not only new Orleans. We had Katrina and Rita back to back! Lost farm and home and still trying to get help. I have written to Ellen many times asking for help, but I get no response! What will it take to get help?

    The Story that could be told? The Katrina victims were out placed in Dallas- Houston- Austin- OKC - Little Rock. I can tell you 1st hand that the Crime Rate went out the Roof! Shootings in schools- -Murder-Rape! For 2 solid years it was every night on the news and yes the news reported where they were originally from! It was Chaos! These Cities Hotels were full of them by way of The Government. We all were glad to see N.O. Get back on its feet!

    Everyone seems to forget that just about the whole state of Florida was "ravaged" also. No-one seems to care that people here are still living with the effects. I am one of the lucky one who had the resources to help myself and a few others.

    Not a huge Pitt fan, but I am so pleased to see an A-List celebrity doing something positive for people here in our own country. Seems like everyone wants to go to another country and be seen doing wonderful things when we have folks right here who desperately need it. Brad Pitt for Goodwill Ambassador to America!!! Maybe I am a Pitt fan after all. Always been an Ellen fan.

    Brad and Ellen are great humanitarians.

    So often those who criticize the most volunteer the least themselves. Anyone who can use their celebrity status or lack of "status" to help others in need is to be commended, period.
