Bono editing tomorrows Independant

Sorry if this has been posted already, but Bono is editing tomorrows (Tuesday, 16th May) Independant newspaper.

Here is the e-mail I got from

Dear U2.Commers

This is just a quick heads-up to check out The Independent newspaper this

For one day only the paper has a new editor - Bono!

The Independent, one of the UK's leading quality newspapers, has become a media
partner of the Red Campaign, the organisation founded by Bono and
Bobby Shriver to get the weight of the corporate world behind the fight against
HIV/AIDS in the poorest countries.

On Tuesday the paper goes RED when Bono takes the editorial chair. He has
already been commissioning articles - word is that these feature the designers
Stella McCartney and Giorgio Armani and a conversation between Bono and the
comedian Eddie Izzard.

New photographs by the artist Sam Taylor-Wood will be published for the first
time while the US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, will choose her Ten
Best pieces of music.

According to the Independent website, 'Bono expects to do everything an editor
does, from chairing the morning editorial conference to writing headlines and
choosing pictures.'

On Tuesday half the paper's revenue will go to RED to help fight Africa's Aids

Pick up a copy on the day and support RED yourself.

More about RED -

Best wishes
The U2.Com Team

Would someone be good enough to pick up a copy for me and send it along? Of course I will compensate them for all costs.
