Blondie -- The Next Great Urban Planner?

On the eve of her introduction into the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame, music superstar Deborah Harry of Blondie says that her "future will be in architecture and urban planning".

'There's a lot of money here and people should be putting up buildings that mean something,' says Harry, looking as fashionable as ever, despite the early morning hour. 'The streets look like prisons. It's mind-boggling to me how people can be so short-sighted and greedy. They're knocking down pieces of history...and they're putting up these things that are -- what are they? -- nothing really.'"
