Step off, Diane Feinstein: San Francisco-based Architecture for Humanity has rallied its ranks to prepare for a re-build following the Southern California fires (which will stop at some point, despite the hex Bush may cast during today's "tour" of the sites.) Architecture for Humanity is the largest non-profit collective of volunteer architects, all of whom donate their time and skills to needy communities. Its LA chapter has joined forces with Rebuild San Diego; both groups will act as watch dogs, monitoring municipal efforts while mounting their own. Godspeed.
