Should be a clickable thumbnail, there...or do you mean even bigger? I sent it to a friend of mine, she said "Why so damn big?" Actually, that was the working size; at the forum where I used it as a signature, I, of course, had to size it down.

But thanks for the compliment, BonosSaint; it's nice to know that I can please someone besides myself occasionally.

Okay, here's something short I wrote:

BONO TALKS TO JESUS
THE ROLLING STONE INTERVIEW
PART I


BONO: I can't believe we are having this conversation. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you the first revolutionary, the original rock and roller, the Deity who put the Jeez back into Jesus. God-Man, Humanity's Man, Beatitudes Man, Cool Sandals Man, Shepherd Man, Love Man, Cross Man, Risen Man, Savior Man.

JC: You already did this speech for Bob Marley.

BONO: Well, if I knew I was going to interview you, I would have saved it. You have to admit this interview was a remote possibility at best. After two millenia, why did you decide to do this interview?

JC: Has it been that long? It's good to be back. We have been watching everything carefully, unwilling to interfere out of our love for you. Watching to see what mankind would make out of the gift they were given. Troubled sometimes, heartened others. Angered often by what mankind has done in my name.
Shaken to the core. But I sometimes am so proud--the individual kindness, the faith even now, when my flock, my real sheep, show the love I taught them. Personally, I liked the late sixties, early seventies. I got nostalgic with it--the long hair, the dirty feet, the sandals, the sense of community the energy. The music moved me in ways I could not comprehend. I appreciate all the Hallelujahs and hymns, but they get a little old. It was good to hear somebody get down and dirty. The Rock and Roll explosion--the British bands at first. I loved the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Kinks. Although I don't think even I could bring Keith Richard back to life.

BONO: Keith isn't dead.

JC: (Silence) Oh.

BONO: Many people have made the same mistake.

JC: I have to rethink this infallibility thing. Actually I've rethought
it a few times.

BONO: Well, he does show all the signs. Why come back now?

JC: I could say the decades are like seconds. But that wouldn't be quite the truth. I felt I had to get my message across again. I tried posting a few times in Interference, but I got flamed. It was the music that did it. In a human eyeblink, rock and roll turned to disco, then the headbanging thing. I had to spend most of my energy stopping my Father from destroying the world. I made him promise if I could find even one good man on earth, he would not destroy it, even if AC-DC was giving him a divine headache. Highway to Hell was almost a deal breaker. Well, fortunately, I found a good man in U2.

BONO: I'm flattered.

JC: Actually it was Adam Clayton. God really loved the bassline in "Mysterious Ways." But we figured you could handle the interview thing better.

That is so great Bono's Saint, I love it. Your writing is so clever

I love this line especially, not so ironic perhaps.. I tried posting a few times in Interference, but I got flamed

Does Jesus like Bruce?

These are incredible. I love the emotion in the drawing, the whimsy in your second piece and the cleverness of "6". I keep going back to your second piece. (PS. Just stole it for my computer wallpaper. Sorry.)

Muggsy, those are great.

I especially like the first one; the emotion on her face, the understated colors emphasize the lines. You're very talented.

Someday. Bono had to go do lunch with some world leader so the interview was put on hold.
