"This should keep you busy reading for a long time..."

While my hand heals and I tinker with the website...

(Input please if you would love. That's a dear. Thanks ever so much.)

Give this a read: A report on Bob Geldolf's efforts to help Africa.

"In case you havenít noticed, Geldof hasnít produced much music in the past 20 years. Instead, heís devoted his life to fighting hunger and poverty in Sub-Saharan Africa, and it shows Ė Sir Bob really knows his stuff. And while he is clearly trying to reach out to a wide spectrum of people, he didnít pull any punches when it came to criticizing those who waste, embezzle, or squander public money (at one point, he casually mentioned that both Prime Minister Berlusconi of Italy and French President Jacques Chirac would be in jail for corruption if they werenít leaders of their respective nations)."

Great stuff with a TON of links. Scott has done an excellent job of linking to other contributors that were on the call and the organizations that deserve your attention.

Much like the Gates Foundation what Geldof is proposing is rewarding the countries that move towards making things better, a phenominal step in the right direction.

Very inspiring.
