Bono on fatherhood

In 2002, rock star and political activist Bono said having children has only increased his desire to make a difference in the world.

"People [thought that having children] would chill me out, [but] it made me more angry. You think about the world that they're inheriting, and you think about the way things are…it made me understand why people fight wars. When I saw my child being born…you have a feeling that you would do anything to protect that life, and it's a dangerous feeling. But you can put it to use in terms of getting politically active and not lying down."

I've heard that quote before and it is refreshing to see it in print. What a great man, superb proud father and husband and overall angel of a human being.

That's it. He must be cloned. At the least, made to hold fatherhood seminars for the responsibility impaired. Ahem.

Or I could try kidnapping him. That might be fun. Ohwait. I'm too decrepit. *sigh*

He always says the right stuff.... always. And when he doesn't, he makes it sound right.
