You don’t win 14 Grammys feeding Africans

The satirical geniuses [genii? – Ed] at The Onion perfectly pre-empted Amnesty International’s decision to give U2 their 2005 Ambassador of Conscience Award for ’21 years of commitment to equality’.. with this article, “Rest Of U2 Perfectly Fine With Africans Starving”, replete with quotes from the music-playing part of the band – “When Bono starts telling the audience how messed up the world can be and how we should work together to make things better, I usually just zone out.” heh

Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.

While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
