REALITY TV LENDS A HAND TO THE NEEDY

Even the government isn’t beyond reality TV as first lady Laura Bush made her debut on an episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Touring the Mississippi disaster areas, the first lady helped to hand out donated items to people in Biloxi. Instead of remodeling a home this week, the home show handed out much needed items to people left stranded from Hurricane Katrina.
