bono's an emotional guy. i think it's touching and sincere.

my friend who saw it for the first time in vegas thought it was too contrived. As do I, every time I've seen it since the webcast!

But I still love Bono

lol

First off - I think it's pure emotion and true energy from Bono. We know how he is. I prefer him to repeat it - because it's a sign or reference that life is bigger than the band, than any big idea. I prefer for him to do it every night - instead of just once. It's very touching and I think it shows just how much he loves the country and feels for it too. His tears, they are real tears.

Well it started in Hamilton when I gave bono my flag, so unless I'm on u2's payroll, I doubt marketing people are involved. He continued to do it everynight after that. It was a highlight that night and I think that it conveys something about what bono is trying to say. They do that bullfight everynight..no one complains about that. And a lot of times bonos lines that he says have been scrpted and are repeated from city to city.In short...I tnk you shoudl stop questioning the sincerity of it, and the redundancy of it..and just enjoy it fo what it is. Most of the people in the audience are seeing the show once..and once only..and bono is playing to that. Just think of it like the bulfight..it's part of the song now for a while at at least.

I like it. The emotion I feel when I see him do it is the same every time.

What I feel for the flag, for those who died on Sept 11 and all that comes with it, including the tribute during One, doesn't change. It's still real, and I know it's real for Bono too.

In the wake of Sept 11 I think it's amazing that he reaches us in this way and shows this emotion, and I'm glad he's kept it up, and am happy for those whose flags he's held so dear.

love and lemons

And is the pay o.k.? I mean if there are some job spots that are opening I'm interested - but not as a sex slave (except there are some females in their organisation who are in need for it)

I was standing near the girl whose flag was taken in Baltimore. She was just an ordinary fan from the GA line, who posts on the mailing lists, and her name is Cathy. She was a real fan and I will never forget the look in her big blue eyes and on her face when he did that with her flag! It was awesome. He should continue to do it for more fans.

Here is the pic I took of it:


I sent one to the girl whose flag it was.
