  1. Bono's health scare

    I wondered about it, too. What's this talk about the liner notes? When I heard about the "health scare" the first thing that popped into my head was a mental health issue. Bono went all-in on his anti-Trump stance (very vocal and frontal in his criticism of Trump in the lead up to the election) and I think that he didn't anticipate that a) Trump would win and b ) the blow back it would have. Bono's ambitions, related to Africa, depend enormously on cooperation with the Executive branch of the US government and Trump is a different animal than past Presidents. Trump puts his own ego before all else and will have no qualms about letting people in Africa die to make a point. Bono's criticism of Trump will have a direct impact on Bono's philanthropic ambitions for Africa. If Bono woke up to this reality and internalized all of this I could see where that might have caused a bit of a crisis and guilt. The stakes are so enormous. The first thing I thought to myself, after listening to the album one time through, was "man, Trump winning really got in Bono's head".
  2. SoE...wow

    The first couple of listens through SoE had me a bit worried but after giving it a bit more time it’s gaining momentum with each replay. These songs soar. This album is awesome. I hope U2 announces a second leg to the US tour and comes back around to Minneapolis.
