Justice, A Roll of the Dice
Live 8 is on right now in Philadelphia. I wasn't feeling it before, but I feel it now. I am absolutely shocked that in this time of unbelievable selfishness and obliviousness, Bob Geldoff has pulled this off. I hope those fuckers from last week's Young Republican conference get an earful of global thinking and learn what horrors lies, greed and blindness create.
I'm not holding my breath, of course, waiting for people who talk so much about being Christians to have a Christian impulse and join the march toward justice. But here, let me hold open the door.
God DAMN, I love Bob Geldoff the way I only love people who truly give a shit about poverty and do something about it. I'm sorry I had doubts about the project. I'll adore him from a safe distance, sign the petition and encourage other people to sign it, too.
