Apparently bashing Bono has become all the rage. For whatever reason, it drives some people crazy when celebrities use their status to do good int he world. For the record, though Bono may not be the world's most gifted writer, he certainly is less hackworthy and has done more good for the world than other idiots the NY Times has seen fit to employ. Being as he is for the most part on our side, I don't really understand why some libs feel compelled to criticize the man.
