U2's Bono to donate guitar for hunger campaign!

Bloody hell, now that's some news, you can tell Bono has really never been to a 3rd world country. On the mean streets of Jakarta there are thousands of beggars with guitars and it is doing nothing for hunger there! In fact on all of the streets in Jakarta their there, all wanting a bit of comfort and a wisp of luxury that they see driving by in a big shiny car.

It's funny how we all act as though comforts and luxury were the chief requirements in life, when all that we need to make us really happy is something to be enthusiastic about. and what's even more a paradox is that the idea of living a long life appeals to everyone, but the idea of getting old doesn't appeal to anyone. It's funny what getting older does to you. I used to be worried that I was not getting enough sex. Now I'm worried that I'm not getting enough fiber. Which makes me ask, "If a turtle doesn't have a shell, is he homeless or naked?"

Had to stop thinking about those poor people somehow.

My father will be arriving in Singapore tonight after midnight. Not sure how long he will be staying since Mom has essentially booted him out.

This will be the old codgers first trip off the American continent and he is 70. Makes me kinda feel like I've seen it all, done it all, can't remember most of it. Hope to show him around a bit but will be content if he likes the golf club by the house in any case.

I assume the guitar will be auctioned off for money and the money will go to the world hunger campaign...

gotta feed the bellies first in order for there to be any enthusiasm for much of anything else, Maslow's hierachy of needs thing...not to mention money left over for luxeries...but if they're going to dream of course they are going to dream big, just like the rest of us
