So you had a busy weekend, right? You took care of the recycling, sent out some Veterens Day cards, alphabetized your doo-rag collection, etc. Well, no matter how much you accomplished over the last few days, you’ve got nothing on impish do-gooder Bono, who is now inserting himself, Zelig-like, in every major and minor pop-cultural happening around the globe:
- He defended Madonna’s recent adoption, while noting that, by the way, he almost went the whole adopt-an-African-kid route twenty years ago. [The Sun]
- He made a surprise appearance at a Kylie Minogue concert in Australia, where the teeny singer noted that the crowd is “in the company of greatness.” They then cast light on that greatness by performing a Robbie Williams song. [NME]
- He was the subject of a giant New York Times diagram of philanthropy, possibly the first chart to ever include Toby Keith, Bob Geldof and Jimmy Fallon. [NY Times]
On the to-do list for this weekend: The red-carpet premiere of Matthew Broderick and Danny Devito’s Deck The Halls; emceeing the customer-appreciation party at the Supercuts at the Port Goss Family Outlet in Port Goss, Rhode Island; and some light yardwork.
