What do free star-studded concerts have to do with showing a global desire to end debt in Africa? I wonder how many people would show up for these acts without the cause compared to how many people would show up for the cause without the acts. I'm guessing most would check out the big name bands for free in the name of bagels, in the name of Wal-Mart, in the name of Scrabble. Live8 means jack shit.
You don't know how glad I am that I'm not moving to Philly until August.
