Day 2 of cribbed internet blogging.

So Live 8 happened over the weekend to help convince the world leaders to end poverty and hunger in africa. Wonderful music guys, but how about trying this on for size: trade in your private jets and first class seats for a $99 flight on Jet Blue and give the difference to a charity or a school or just buy a couple thousand pieces of chicken and have 'em delivered. Or what about the 100 bucks or more you charge for a live show? We've made you rich and famous - now put your money where your mouth is.

    They did put their money where their mouth is. They dontated their time which is pretty damn expensive. How much more do we need pop stars to do? The rest is up to us and our governments. I mean, I'm all for rock stars giving free concerts and donating money but at some point, we have to make sure the people with the REAL money start ponying up.

    Absolutely agree with Mark and disagree with Jared on this one. This is not about sympolism. It's about scale. These people have gone way beyond the call. And they're working for $25 BILLION + in aid. That's more than a few thousand pieces of chicken.
