Bono Still Headed for Sainthood
Bono isn’t just a leading light of NetAid. He’s also behind the Jubilee 2000initiative to erase Third World debt. If he had his way, the Western worldwould cancel the debts owed to them by poorer nations. And he’s enlistingthe Pope. Said Bono : "The Jewish community is behind it, because theidea of Jubilee is actually a Jewish idea. The Pope has invited us on the23rd of September to the Vatican. He’s invited myself and some artists.Quincy Jones is coming ; the Dalai Lama is going to be there, [and]some churchmen from different traditions. [It’s] all to push the politicians togo the whole way. It’s a very important thing to Pope John Paul." That’s onepowwow we wouldn’t mind being a fly on the wall at. When not saving theworld with his white flag, Bono makes the odd album. He’s described theprogress on the new U2 record as "about two songs away from a classicU2 album." Is there any other kind ?
