"things to be thankful for"

It's good to see this entry on the list:

"Moving day: While the new Department of Veterans Affairs medical complex in Mid-City remains controversial, there's some good news: 55 historic houses have been moved -- instead of just torn down -- from the site. Another 26 should be moved by Dec. 1, the last day of the program. The city gave $3.2 million to the nonprofit Builders of Hope to move houses that met certain historic and physical requirements onto lots owned by Builders of Hope and other nonprofits, such as Habitat for Humanity, and then secure them on foundations. The nonprofits will pay for renovations and put the houses back on the residential market."
