Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

Is Bono the man of the year?
TIME's person of the year issue will come out soon. Leading candidates include "Mother Nature", First Responders, Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi, Karl Rove, Patrick Fitzgerald, Valerie Plame. I think they'll probably go with something along the lines of the Mother Nature theme - the tsunami (technically last year, but since the last issue), Katrina/Rita, oil, etc.
But Bono's on the list too. He's got a massive worldwide tour combined with extensive public activism (Live 8, DATA, The One Campaign, meetings with President Bush, etc.).
It's only a matter of time as to when Bono gets recognition like this (and the Nobel Peace Prize sometime in the next 15 years). Sooner rather than later would mean that the noble causes he's fronting are gaining vitally needed traction and public backing. So consider me in favor.
