I laughed when I saw the cover. I never though I would see bono sandwiched in between Bill and Melinda gate.

No one takes CNN seriously. The BBC flattens CNN in just about every way possible.

I'm real happy for the B-man. He really deserved it, especially this year with all he has done. It would have been nice if he had won the Noble Peace Prize, but oh well.

I hope he enjoys it.

Well, when U2 were in Seattle, Bono stayed over at the Gates' mansion. Unfortunately, all of the guest rooms were out of commission, so they all had to share the one master bedroom. Bono slept sandwiched in between Bill and Melinda.

Or so I heard.

That's my boy!! well, man I guess, he's actually older than my dad... but damn! I'm sure proud of him!! He deserves it, too. Nice to see Time highlight the AIDS issue despite all the natural disasters of the year. It's easy to forget about Africa when something like Katrina hits home, but we can't forget. Not when so many people are dying everyday over something preventable and treatable. Congratulations B-man!! and in addition to all his humanitarian work he's made a few nice songs and sung at a couple o' nice concerts, so, you know, gotta consider that too

Can't wait until I get my issue in the mail on Tuesday. I'm so happy that he got this honor.

very interesting.

Congrats to Bono and Bill and Melinda Gates.

It is interesting. Has anyone checked out The Rock Star's Burden
By PAUL THEROUX published on Dec 15, 2005.

It's in the New York Times. I was able to read the article yesterday but now they want you to sign up!

It's not a too flattering article.

yeah, i read that article. he basically criticizes bono, b/c he disagrees with bono's suggested solution for helping africa. difference of opinion, i suppose- but it does seem a bit nasty at times.

congrats to bono for being a "person of the year"!!!

The story they did on CNN was excellent. As far as Bona between Gates and his wife. Well, Bono knows where the money is

Replayed tonight on CNN at 7 PM EST

What about Ali? It seems to me she's been right along side Bono. She would have looked nice on the cover.
