Papa Pitt's Playground Family Fun

Papa Pitt's Playground Family Fun

Brad Pitt takes three of his four kids — Maddox, 6, Pax, 3, and Zahara, 2 — to a park playground on New York City’s Upper East Side on Tuesday.

Mad, Pax and Z climbed across the monkey bars, dropped down the fire engine poles and slid down the spirally slides. Looks like everybody had a blast with good dad Brad!

Here are some details about Brad and Angelina Jolie‘s dinner in the Hamptons, which they flew to via helicopter. E! Online reports, “The intimate four-hour soiree was attended by about 70 people, including Christie Brinkley, Pitt‘s Oceans 13 costar Ellen Barkin, Donna Karan, music honcho L.A. Reid and hotelier Andre Balazs. The New Orleans-inspired buffet menu—prepared by [hosts Jane Rosenthal and husband Craig Hatkoff’s] personal chef—included crabcakes, salmon, lamb, lemon pound cake and grilled peaches.”

We were talking about Madd going to the Lycée on the other thread. It just occurred to me that the Lycée requires all their first-graders to be fluent in French. Did Madd pick up enough fluency in Kindergarten to meet the Lycée’s fluency requirements, or will he have to repeat Kindergarten? He should be in the first grade this year.

The Lycée is a great school, but that fluency requirement is something else.

#63: you like tats but hers is gross. Right! I don’t have any but I bet I look better than you anytime of the day. You probably have a permanent grimace in your face from that stick up your craw about Angelina. People like you are never pretty no matter how well you present yourself. All that b*tching about somebody you got a hard on for tend to leave an ugly mark no matter how hard you scrub it away.

Look at the way they smile!!!Cuteness overload!

Brad and Angelina have such a lovely family.

Pix #8 reminds me of an eye witness account of a visit to a children’s science nuseum in Canada by Brad, Angelina, and Maddox. Zee was not with them. Maddox was climbing on a slide or jungle jim and got up high and was hesitant to come down and witnesses described how Brad and Angelina were cheerleading him and saying he could do it. And Maddox was not too such he could do it. That was in the fall of 2005 when Brad was filming AOJJ so Maddox would have been barely four. Look at the confident 6 year older and his proud dad in pix #8 just 2 years later.

How can anyone doubt how sincere Brad was when he expressed his longing to be a dad?

Wonder what Brad has in that CVS bag.

#78 ooooh what an angry person you must be. Maybe you need some therapy. Anger management at least. An angry face is not pretty, Tita

81 KK1: Great post!. He is a natural dad, there`s no doubt about that. He is enjoying every minute of it.

Have to go to bed now, good night everybody. Peace.

I love how they got to play with other kids! And totally still loving how yesterday Z got her shirt dirty with her icecream! :lol: I love, love, love that they absolutely let their kids be just ‘normal’ kids, not dressing up to the nines just coz they’re out and about ya know? And their kids play with other kids too, great! And that interview in which Brad said that he encouraged his kids to explore, so lovely, you can see that these kids are doing just that, and getting everyday-dirty in the process just like other kids their age. So much love… :)

David Brinkley is the man in this car.

Article from the Washington Post Outlook Section by David Brinkley
posted August 26, 2007

The answer to New Orleans’s levee woes is painfully obvious: money and willpower. Common sense dictates that the endangered areas — if repopulated (and that is a big if) — demand levees that can sustain Category 5 storms. It’s a national obligation. Entire blocks are moldering away while the federal government lifts only a cursory hand to reverse the desultory trend.

Unfortunately, one of the biggest misperceptions the American public harbors is that Katrina was a week-long catastrophe. In truth, it’s better to view it as an era. Remember, the Dust Bowl of the 1930s lasted eight or nine years. We’re still in the middle of the Katrina saga.

Bold action has been needed for two years now, yet all that the White House has offered is an inadequate trickle of billion-dollar Band-aids and placebo directives. Too often in the United States we forget that “inaction” can be a policy initiative. Every day the White House must decide what not to do.

The stubborn inaction appears to fall under the paternalistic guise of helping the storm victims. Bush’s general attitude — a Catch-22 recipe if ever there was one — appears to be that only rank fools would return when the first line of hurricane defense are the levees that this administration so far refuses to fix.

New Orleans appears to be largely abandoned by the Department of Homeland Security, except for its safeguarding of the Port Authority (port traffic is at 90 percent of pre-Katrina numbers) and tourist districts above sea level, such as the French Quarter and Uptown. These areas are kept alive largely by the wild success of Harrah’s casino and a steady flow of undaunted conventioneers.

The brutal Galveston Hurricane of 1900 may be a historical guide to the administration’s thinking. Most survivors of that deadly Texas storm moved to higher land. Administration policies seem to tacitly encourage those who live below sea level in New Orleans to relocate permanently, to leave the dangerous water’s edge for more prosperous inland cities such as Shreveport or Baton Rouge.

After the 1900 hurricane, in fact, Galveston, which had been a large, thriving port, was essentially abandoned for Houston, transforming that then-sleepy backwater into the financial center for the entire Gulf South. Galveston devolved into a smallish port-tourist center, one easy to evacuate when hurricanes rear their ugly heads.

To be fair, Bush’s apparent post-Katrina inaction policy makes some cold, pragmatic sense. If the U.S. government is not going to rebuild the levees to survive a Category 5 storm — to be finished at the earliest in 2015 and at an estimated cost of $40 billion, far eclipsing the extravagant bill for the entire Interstate Highway System — then options are limited.

But what makes the current inaction plan so infuriating is that it’s deceptive, offering up this open-armed spin to storm victims: “Come back to New Orleans.” Why can’t Bush look his fellow citizens in the eye and tell them what seems to be the ugly truth? That as long as he’s commander in chief, there won’t be an entirely reconstructed levee system.

Shortly after Katrina hit, former House speaker J. Dennis Hastert declared that a lot of New Orleans could be “bulldozed.” He was shot down by an outraged public and media, which deemed such remarks insensitive and callous. Two years have shown that Hastert may have articulated what appears to have become the White House’s de facto policy. He may have retreated, but the inaction remains.

The White House keeps spinning Bush’s abysmal poll numbers by claiming that his legacy will rise decades from now the way Harry S. Truman’s did. But Truman had a reputation for straight talk and bold vision. If Bush wants history to perceive him as Trumanesque, then he must act Trumanesque.

Bush’s predecessors moved mountains. Theodore Roosevelt set aside 230 million acres for wildlife conservation (plus built the Panama Canal). Franklin D. Roosevelt began a kaleidoscope of New Deal programs to calm the Great Depression and Truman oversaw the Marshall Plan rebuilding of Western Europe after World War II. Bush could seize the initiative and announce a real plan to rebuild, a partnership between the government, Fortune 500 companies and faith-based groups.

Unfortunately, right now New Orleans is having a hard time lobbying on its own behalf. Minnesota’s Twin Cities have about 20 Fortune 500 companies to draw in private-sector money to help rebuild the bridge that collapsed in Minneapolis. New Orleans has one, Entergy, which is verging on bankruptcy. So besides U.S. taxpayers and port fees, New Orleans must count on spiked-up tourist dollars to jumpstart the post-Katrina rebuild.

But this is where the bizarre paradox of living in a city of ruins comes into play. Out of one side of its mouth the New Orleans Chamber of Commerce says, “Come on down, folks! We’re not underwater!” Yet these same civic boosters — viscerally aware that the Bush administration is treating the desperate plight of New Orleans in an out-of-sight, out-of-mind fashion — don’t want to bite the hand that feeds them large chunks of reconstruction cash. New Orleans is both bragging about normalcy and poor-mouthing itself, confusing Americans about what the real state of the city is.

Recently Mayor C. Ray Nagin, born with the proverbial foot in his mouth, tried to explain why the homicide rate in New Orleans is so appallingly high. When a TV reporter asked, Nagin merely shrugged: “It’s not good for us, but it also keeps the New Orleans brand out there.” This absurd comment — and dozens like it — hurts New Orleans’s recovery almost as much as Bush’s policy of inaction.

Everywhere I travel in the United States, people ask, “Why did you guys reelect such a doofus?” There is a feeling that any community that reelected a “first responder” who stayed in a Hyatt Regency suite during Hurricane Katrina, never delivered a speech to the homeless at the Superdome or Convention Center in New Orleans, and played the “chocolate city” race card at a historic moment when black-white healing was needed probably deserves to get stiffed by the federal government.

And Nagin isn’t the only bad ambassador New Orleans has. It also has City Council member Oliver Thomas, Sen. David Vitter and Rep. William J. Jefferson — all currently in deep trouble for potentially breaking the law. Dismayed by such political buffoonery, Americans have simply turned a blind eye to New Orleans’s reconstruction plight. There is a scolding sentiment around the country that Louisiana needs to get its own house in order before looking for fresh levee handouts.

Then there are egregious contractor crimes such as over-billing and price-gouging. The medical infrastructure has largely collapsed. Mercy and Charity hospitals remain closed. A severe crisis in mental health care has erupted and gang violence is on the rise. The Environmental Protection Agency refuses to clearly state that it’s safe to live in the metro area. Young professionals, recognizing that there are greener pastures all over the nation, are fleeing in droves.

Even with our trillion-dollar debt and excessive military expenses in Iraq, the American people, if presented with a bold plan, might be ready to save the beleaguered city. Perhaps the people haven’t lost their good Samaritan grit.

Let’s, for once, put New Orleans on the front burner. After all, Katrina exposed all the ills of urban America — endemic poverty, institutionalized racism, failing public schools and much more. New Orleans is just a microcosm of Newark and Detroit and hundreds of other troubled urban locales.

How we deal with New Orleans’s future will tell us a lot about our nation’s future. In 2008 it should really be an up or down vote. Category 5 levees or not? An independent FEMA or a FEMA still ensconced in Homeland Security? Do we pour $40 billion into grandiose Louisiana engineering projects or do we instead put up “no trespassing” signs in the areas below sea level? All are hard choices with various merits and pains.
The important thing, however, is for America to decide whether the current policy of inaction is really the way we want to deal with the worst natural disaster in our history

That is a good question. They may send Madddox to another school in NYC because of the language requirements. Doesn’t the UN have a school in NYC?

Pax seems fearless doesn’t he? He has just fit into this family as if he has been in it since his birth. He follows big brother but also makes his own paths.

All three children look so happy to be with daddy, and daddy looks happy to be with them. Didn’t Angelina say that Brad holds them and they all feel safe with him. So true.

ohmigod, went to perezhilton, he have some pics of hogans badly damaged car, it was horrible, i couldn’t see anyone would survive on that, it would be a miracle for them to survive and be thankful that they have been given a second chance/life, hope they will learn their lesson/s..

was hogan drunk? on drugs? or just plain over speeding like he was in a car race?

The #1 pic was really cute. the expression of Zee was adoring.

Nice,these pictures of the kids smiling and enjoying life are terrific :)
