New Orleans' Musicians Village dedicates first homes

This is an exciting project that has been undertaken by many celebrities and Habitat for Humanity. The goal is to eventually build 300 homes in the 9th ward for musicians whose homes were destroyed by Katrina's waters. Read the full story for full effect, but I would like to share this quote from local musician and general good-guy Freddy Omar.
I am especially honored that I will be living in the Musicians’ Village and
cannot wait to begin teaching music to the neighborhood children

In a city often short on good news these days, you've got to celebrate that. Full story here
