"Singer dubbed pest"

I found this little article in my local newspaper today - The South Australian Advertiser - and thought I'd share. :)


"U2 singer Bono says he has a new nickname around the White House: "The Pest". The Irish rocker met President George W. Bush this week to discuss AIDS and Mr Bush's new initiative on US aid to poor countries. Afterwards, he accompanied Mr Bush to a speech, then had another session with White House officials. "I am a best, I am a stone in the shoe of a lot of people living here in this town, a squeaky wheel. I can do better by just getting into the White House and talking to a man who I believe listens."
