Very Busy Bono

Here's a brief news item. In between the National Prayer Breakfast address and the speech he gave on Friday night, Bono attended the annual Democratic Party retreat, where he gave yet another speech. It must be the Wheaties.


Bono, Al Gore highlight Democrats' get-together

February 4, 2006

The annual retreat of the U.S. House Democratic caucus in Kingsmill featured the rock group U2's singer Bono on Thursday, and former Vice President Al Gore was expected to speak today.

The retreat's events were closed to both the media and public.

Bono's speech Thursday night touched on themes of fighting AIDS and promoting debt relief in Africa, said a congressman's press secretary, who was at the retreat but spoke on condition of anonymity.

Gore was expected to address global warming and the Bush administration's domestic spying program - two issues he has recently criticized.

That cries out for photoshop. Sadly, I lack the skills.

Love the Wheaties box!!! I'd certainly gobble up my Wheaties if that picture were on the box. Is there a special "prize" inside?

Good Lord! I wonder why they have that projection of Bono there? Maybe to inspire the workers?? Will it still be there when they present the medals?

If I had known bono was going to be at the retreat on thurs I probably could have used my connections and gotten in. It's only 20 minutes away from my school and I know several of the pols who were there (hell check out my sig). But why am I complaining I saw him Friday
