Bono Increasingly Irrelevant

Okay, this one is a big WTF.

U2 lead singer and activist Bono visited the Pentagon to discuss Africa and the fight against global poverty with U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates, representatives of the two men said on Wednesday.

"I think this was a chance for two people who care about the problems facing the continent of Africa to talk about their shared interest in solving those problems," Morrell said of the meeting that was not publicized in advance.     --

Maybe someone can explain to me what the frell Gates is supposed to do to help Africa? Why doesn't Bono meet with the North Dakota Athletic Commission, perhaps they can help too. Why don't people like Bono just give money to people. What a joke.

Celebrity != Reality
