First Lady visits Biloxi

Heard through a megaphone: "Good morning, Biloxi!"

First lady Laura Bush will participate in the filming of ABC’s popular television program "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" today as part of a two-stop trip to Biloxi.

(Executive producer Tom Forman said), "Obviously, our traditional format of just helping one family at a time, it doesn't really make sense. What we really need to do is help the community. We reached out to the White House, and they reached out to us, and we all agreed we can make it work. We wanted, from the moment that hurricane hit, to get down there and do what we do, which is build. It's probably a little too soon for that, but we're itching to get started."
