    Bono (LOL)
    Bono, lead singer of the rock band U2, is famous throughout the entertainment industry for being more than a little self-righteous.
    At a recent U2 concert in Glasgow, Scotland, he asked the audience for total quiet.
    Then, in the silence, he started slowly clapping his hands, once every few seconds. Holding the audience in total silence, he said into the micro
    "Every time I clap my hands, a child in Africa dies."
    From the front of the crowd, a voice with a broad Scottish accent pierced the quiet ...
    "Well f*ckin' stop doin it then, ya evil bastard!"

    Peace,

    I actually saw an interview with him yesterday where he was doing that Rexanne. It wasn't a concert hall, it was an interview, so perhaps he saw the story circulating. It was on VH1 so maybe I will see it again and pay attention to if he was responding to this or not. I was working with the TV on in the background, but I heard him do the clapping and I heard him say the line...

    It's still a good joke, Rexanne... I like the Scottish accent part.

    He wasn't being cavalier, he is raising awareness.
