Inskeep interviews Bono this morning. There's a lot a great questions one could ask Bono in an interview. I would have liked to hear what he thinks his greatest accomplishments are in his work on Africa. It would have been fascinating to ask him if he has any misgivings of getting so chummy with leaders of the G-8 who have helped bring so much misery to Africa. Or what about a recent letter to Bono on debt relief?
Striving for banality, Steve Inskeep says, "I asked a lot of people what they wanted to know from you before this interview and there were a number of serious questions that were thrown out [no kidding!] and then people would say, what's up with the colored glasses, why does he do that?"
We all know what glasses Inskeep wears! I guess Bono has to be polite, but it would have been great if he could have responded by asking,"Are you trying to be stupid or does it just come naturally?"
