    Pope and Bono nominate for Nobel peace prize

    I think they really tarnished the image of the NPP when they gave it to Arafat.

    To me, you'd better create a cure for something horrible, or change the world with an invention, or something like that...

    Even though I like U2, bono use to piss me off with his political stuff. But in recent interviews about AIDS in Africa he seems to be fair in placing the blame. For example, some of the customs by African tribes help spead it.


    One of my pet peeves is Musicians who lecture us common folk. For example, when I seen the Eagles they had about 60 semi's to bring their tour on the road. And Don Henley wants to lecture us on the environment?

    I agree... to a certain extent. Some celebrities actually take the time to learn about a specific "cause" because they have so much time on their hands, etc... So much money to go around, etc...

    Daphne Zuniga comes to mind. She was on Howard the other day...
