Well, if it was yesterday, then he was in Arkansas.
This seems a pretty unlikely story.

I worry about his safety a lot since his speech in Portland it has been bothering me. Why you may ask. The reason being that the security was not what you'd except for an event with such a high profile person speaking. A quick peek into hand bags and no metal detectors. I've been in schools more secure than The Rose Gardern was. Bono has helped bring about change in countries where some people would prefer it stay the same. That makes him a threat in their eyes. I always say a special lilttle prayer for him and his family each day. So many good remarkable people have had their time cut short throughout history by men with evil hearts. I want all of U2 to grow old and be able to enjoy their grandchildren! Adam has some work to do though.

It is quite scary...I remember reading once about how Bono was recieving death threats for awhile. I can't fathom the mind that actaully thinks the world would be better off with a man like Bono.

On a related morbid note, one of my favorite parts in Flanagan's book is when he and Bono are out walking late at night and Bono is drunk and singing the theme song from the Monkees. Bono stumbles into the street and Bill grabs Bono just in time to prevent Bono form getting hit by a car. Bill goes on to comment that if he hadn't saved Bono, he would forever have to tell people that Bono's last words were "hey, hey, we're the Monkees. people say we monkey around."

MY LUAS ESCAPE

by FIONA WYNNE

The U2 frontman said a tram almost ploughed into him in Dublin.

But despite his near death experience, he still loves the Luas and
described it as "a beautiful mode of transport'.

Bono told Hotpress magazine: "If I had to choose a method of rapid
transport to be killed by it would be the Luas.

"The job of art is to chase ugliness away. Let's start with the
streets. Cars are ugly. Buses are ugly. The Luas is beautiful."

This isn't the first time Ireland's most famous son has come face to
face with death by transport vehicle.

Last month he was almost knocked down by a taxi driver as he crossed
Lansdowne Road.

He's a bit of a eejit, aint he?
You think you'd learn from nearly getting hit by a taxi,but the luas? That would have been nasty!!
Dublin what a dangerous place, especially for little short arse Bono!!

well... we all know he can't drive his car very well, but i didn't know that this incompetence stretchs to noticing any moving vehicle.
the only thing i like about this information is the word "NEARLY"
