There are those who like to snigger about celebrities being only in it for themselves, hosting telethons and charity dos to promote their mighty hearts and to be seen.

But Jolie and Pitt are different. While Bob Geldof invites us to dig deep and build a well, and Bono, Mr G9, beseeches us to cancel the debt, Hollywood’s finest buy the place and have it remodeled.

And relocated. If the waters won’t come to Ethiopia, bring Ethiopia to the waters.

Ethiopia II: Son Of Ethiopia is off the coast of Dubai. According to the Emirates Today newspaper Bradgelina intend to use the reclaimed piece of land to showcase environmental issues and encourage people to live a greener life. They will do this from a manmade island.

And it represents good value. With prices for the islands ranging from six million to 36 million dollars, taking into account Ethiopia’s debts and the interest on those debts, even the top end fee represents something of a bargain.

Of course, the couple’s two-year-old daughter Zahara was born in Ethiopia. And it will be good to reconnect her with her roots. Perhps in time, the Jolie-Pitts other children can reclaim the lands they were sired in, namely Thailand and Vietnam.

The one shocker is that the Jolie-Pitts opted for Ethiopia over Namibia, the palce they tried on for size when their daughter Shiloh came among us.

But small steps – the world was not buildt in a day. Inded, the original world took six days to build. And with Brad’s knowledge of carpentry and plumbing gleaned from his time amid the flood waters of New Orleans there is evey chance he and his lover can set a new record…
