Thread Name: BS: Bono
Subject: RE: BS: Bono
Bono has done more than most for the children of Africa. Can anyone say they know someone who has done more. I couldn't give a shit about what kind of musician he is. He's draged millions from governments & kings that wouldn't offer a penny until he shamed them, tricked them, begged them to support this cause in Africa.
I asked my sister-in-law (check her out if you want - Paula Donovan, senior adviser to the UN special envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa) if he was for real or was he just pulling some kind of stunt. She told me that he's for really for real, he's totaly commited & he works his ass off, for nothing in return & he's been very successful & very effective.
There you got it from the horse's mouth. If you can't help the man do the job he's doing get out of the way & don't drag him down. Or at the very least give him credit for the job you're not doing.
