Congrats to Ireland!

Congratulations Ireland! Bono has been given Time Magazines Man of the Year Award, along with Bill and Melinda Gates. Bono's work in humanitarianism is well known and much appreciated by many in the third world. Once again, a citizen of the Republic of Ireland punches above his weight in taking on the pressing issues of the day. All Irishmen should be proud.

Well now Chas,

Being a contrarian, I am devastated by this news. My grounds are two-fold;

1. Bono's hotel in Dublin in which I occasionally reside, is far too expensive! Where's his humanitarian strea when it comes to 'po white guests like moi?

2. Bono annoys me with his patronising talk about "making poverty history". I'd sooner make U2 history!!

There you go - poor old Bonehead - a national burlesque!

David, You stay in the same hotel as Bono? My, nice digs! Certainly you'd even give the Devil his due.

One thing that impressed me about Bono is that he tells Europe that America is doing a good job with humanitarian work. And he's not ashamed to be seen with my President (if it means getting a donation!)

And you gotta admit,"Sunday, Bloody Sunday" is a good song. Whoops, maybe you don't!!!!! :)
