    I find myself agreeing with Johnson here.

    How about you USMB?

    Geldof has made a cottage industry out of charity events, and Bono does need to shut the fuck up.

    I miss the days when entertainers stuck to entertaining, and left the politics to politicians and the finger-wagging moralizing to the clergy.

    There are many celebrities that do charity work and donate heavily without making it public knowledge. Brian Johnson hit the nail on the head. You don't have to adopt an African or brag in public to be a decent person.
