He's going to WHAT??? This sounds like one of those adult school night class seminars. Sorry, but I think our absolutely favorite garden gnome is going a bit off the deep end here.

Speaking about the AIDS pandemic, debt relief, fair trade and rallying support, yes. Self-help speeches on how to live a purposeful life, no. Check the topics before you ask people where they've been.

I agree. All of the people speaking have so called "self help" like speech titles, but I think that's just the Kennedy Center trying to give this speaker series a "theme."

I don't think any of them will really be self help speeches, well expcept for Dr. Phil

I don't think it's going to be a "self help" speech; Bono doesn't give those. He'll talk about how to help with debt relief and the AIDS pandemic in Africa. That's the theme of all of his speeches and it's how he makes his own life very meaningful.

$6500 for Presidential rate.....yeah fucking right! It cost me less than that (try half) to actually spend an entire month IN Africa. And I like the little disclaimer "* Seating for Bono on February 3, 2006 at the Washington Hilton will be provided in as preferential order as possible". So $6500 isn't even guaranteed to get you the best spot!

If I had $6,500, all my financial woes would be over. But I don't.

How far I am in the hole:

$1,019,40 - one month behind in mortgage

$947.00 - 3 months behind on major credit card with 30% interest

$1,200 -needed repair for dying automobile

$1,799 - in other deliquent bills

and that's not all, folks.....

How anyone could have, and be able to spare, that kind of money is unfathomable to me.

If you look at the subscription info, you can't purchase single tickets - you have to buy the entire subscription for all the various speeches that will be given.

Knowing that this would probably be out of most of our price ranges here, I didn't even bother to post it the other day when it came out.

But it never hurts to know where in the world Bono will be.

Have a great time on Weds night, everyone, and please try to remember to pick up an extra brochure por moi.

Muchas gracias.

Actually, you can get balcony tickets for $295 for the entire package. This would be reasonable if I cared to see any of the others, which I don't.

We need another Heart of America tour b/c that was free!

Yeah...no kidding....oh wait, $6500 doesn't even scratch the surface of my debt.

Bono needs to speak for us poor indebted college students! Required: must owe at least $50,000 to get in the door.

Sometimes I think most rich people, even Bono, are completely out of touch with how the average person has to live. Like when he said the Edun jeans were 'mid priced' and the cheapest pair was $150 Ha, I consider a $20 pair of pants extravagance.
