G&M's Celebration of Celebrity

Don't think of them as millionaire jet-setting, limousine-liberals... they're just simple anti-poverty activists... regaling us with such hopeful tales as... and I quote... "Africa's Golden re-Boot."

I can't help but think though... a few other stories may have fallen through the cracks...
-- NAIROBI, Kenya -- Attackers in Burundi chopped off the limbs of a 5-year-old albino boy and pulled out his mother's eye, killing them over the belief that their body parts would bring wealth and success, human rights activists said Friday.
Not sure that this little newsroom stunt actually does anything to improve anybody's life... but I'm guessing the filagree on Bono's eyeglasses would feed a family of five for the better part of a year.

Pony up, B.


Bono, Geldof and the anarchists. Just what Toronto fucking deserves.
