It's no secret that actor extraordinaire Brad Pitt has a soft spot for New Orleans. He's been living in the city and helping to rebuild the Lower Ninth Ward after hurricane Katrina with his organization the Make it Right Foundation.
Now some New Orleanians are showing their appreciation by campaigning for Pitt to run for mayor in 2010. And they're spreading the word by wearing "Brad Pitt for Mayor" T-shirts.
