Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger
 

Bono on 60 Min

For all those loyal U2 fans, be sure to check this out on Sunday:

The members of the Irish rock band U2 have always believed that their group was about something more than making records and playing concerts. The themes of their music -- often about social injustice, ranging from the American Civil Rights movement to genocide in Bosnia -- have helped them sell over 130 million albums around the world and gross nearly a billion dollars on the concert trail. And offstage, their lead singer, Bono is equally impressive. His political activism -- working to help erase third world debt and supplying Africa with AIDS drugs -- has made him a political force. Ed Bradley takes a closer look at U2 and the double life of their lead singer on 60 Minutes, Sunday, Nov. 20, 7PM et/PT on CBS.

If anyone got this on tape and wants to share, let me know! We missed it because of a football game and a Tivo problem.

I was quite spastic about getting in home in time to see Bono, and it was quite worth it, Bono is my hero (screams the 12 year old in me!)
I even think my roomates understood why I really think Bono is genuine as well. The entire band greaw up in the midst of the Northern Ireland war, being constantly immersed in justice issues. Growing up in this environment makes it hard not to have a life oriented toward talking (singing)about, and acting on social justice issues.
