Bono and the Peace Prize @ 09:58 pm

kjackson:
Lately, there've been a lot of shots taken at Bono for his being nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize... most of them have been nothing more than character attacks but I have to say: I do enjoy when the wittier critics point out that he didn't actually dismantle an atomic bomb.

He didn't?

Bono is an easy character for people to take shots at; he is a multi-millionaire artist who essentially campaigns for higher spending from the developed world. No matter where your politics are, he has done a lot of work, and even without a Nobel Prize I think we can all agree that he has done an incredible amount of work.

He's never tried but I bet you he could. I really don't like it when people attack Bono's character. It's very ignorant to do.

Love & Peace
God bless

Those people talking bull are just jealous. I mean, it doesn't make sense the fact that a rock star has to be doing charity work because the people in charge of it are not doing what they should.

<3 Congrats for the nomination, Bono <3

If he were to sit on his ass and completely ignore issues plaguing our world, everyone would condemn him for mis-using his fortune -- yet when he puts his fame to good use, he's still criticized for being a so-called hypocrite. Damned if you do, damned if you don't, I guess.
