Nominate Bono for the Nobel Peace Prize

http://slate.msn.com/?id=2060526

At this site, they are taking email from readers who have a nominee for the Nobel Prize. I figured I would post it in case any of you wanted to write and let the nice people over at msn know all about Bono and his efforts with debt and AIDS in Africa. I think it would be cool to show them how much support he has.

Wow! I will get to work on a well-written (or an attempt at one) email at once. If anyone deserves this, Bono does.

Oh for Christ's sake - Bono's a rock star. Not some nobel peace prize winner.

Hey, I did a little more research on this topic. Unless any of us meet the requirements listed on http://www.nobel.se/peace/nomination/index.html
we can't actually nominate Bono for the Nobel Peace Prize. If I could, I would . . . nominate Bono. He certainly deserves it. And what's wrong with someone being both a Rock Star and a Nobel Peace Prize nominee?

No, no...I'm sorry I didn't mean we could actually nominate him for the prize but that we could tell MSN and Slate about Bono and get him written about, then who knows where that could lead? Possibly nowhere at all but who knows?...

Ah ha. I understand now. My words of praise for Bono's efforts for peace will make it to Slate. Sula - I remember reading some eloquent words of yours in some thread a while back regarding Bono's good works so I know you'll make us all proud.

Don't feel nervous Sula. Can you ask one of the moderators to look for your well crafted praise of Bono in that earlier thread? Just re-use it for your letter. Actually, I'll ask:

Dear Moderators,

About three weeks ago, there was some thread debating Bono's worthiness as a role model for good deeds. Oh, how I wish that I could remember the title of thread or who started it. I contributed a couple of replies and since I have so few replies in general maybe it would be easier to search for my meager contributions.

I dunno--I think it could work:

MLK, Jr. (1964)
Mother Teresa (1979)
Dalai Lama (1989)
Aung San Suu Kyi (1991)
Nelson Mandela (1993)
Bono (2002)

bono should get one someday, but not yet. it's too early. hopefully (*knocks on wood, makes the sign of the cross*) he will have many years of good doing ahead of him. save it for when he's older and even more accomplished.
