Ok you guys...I was doing a search, it was an innocent search for the benefit of PLEBA. I must admit...I was looking for 'Boom Cha' pics. And this showed up in the search. The pic was attributed to the Harvard Economic Conference which made absolutley no sense to me at all. But then I got to thinking because I looked up bout the conference and it said the director of The Harvard Center For International Developement (CID) was Jeffery Sachs. Bono has meet Jeff Sachs....
(Bono on far left {duh} and Sachs is on the far right)


Bono and Sachs held a meeting on 'Alternative Approaches to Debt Relief' took place from 24-25 September 1999 in Washington DC, USA. Organized jointly by the Global Coalition for Africa (GCA) and CID. The meeting included a letter address from the Pope. (I found a link here: http://www.iisd.ca/sd/hipc/)

Jeffery Sachs, I realized, was one of the people present with Bono, Geldof, Quincy Jones and the like for the meeting with the Pope:


So there is your "six degrees of separation" right there....and you want to know what makes it even more interesting? I found the picture on U2log.com too, although they didn't confirm it themselves...but here is the link: http://u2log.com/archive/001729.shtml


I think we might have found the real deal picture of a picture of the Pope wearing Bono's shades?!

That pic was said to be a fake over on @u2.com about a year ago when someone submitted it to them and then later had to retract its authenticity.

If someone wants to contact the folks over at @u2.com, I think that they could clear up the "authenticity" of this pic.

This is to the best of my recollection - at the time I wanted it to be "the real thing" too!

IT'S A BEAUTIFUL DAY! DON'T LET IT GET AWAY!

that's OK, stars, I think that's the story about the Pope and the infamous shades.

The Vatican never authorized release of the pic where the Pope is wearing Bono's shades (Bono said the Pope "lifted" them - )

So, I think that if this was the pic that the Vatican would have reacted by now to its publication.

But thanks a lot for bringing the other thread about the Sustainable Development conference back into our threads - the link to that conference can never be posted enough. It was a BRILLIANT coming together of Hearts and Minds.

I just really want to see the pics!! Even if they really ever came out...I think there would be a big stink--which is unforetunate that the Vatican feels this way. But thanks Jamila.

sorry, but it doesn't look real to me. The shades look like they're made with a brush in Photoshop...

yes, the big picture in the photo album is photoshopped!
Look better, the sunglasses are not normal!
And they were blue sunglasses not totally black like this one!
