Peace! Peace! Peace!

Everyone's blogging or writing about this Obama Peace Prize thing. So much so that even Bono has taken a stab. In the NY Times. And you can read it here.

I won't weigh in on my opinion, but I'm sure there are better people working on some cool things that could've gotten the award (or "Prize" which I think is a hilarious name for something "us professionals" give ourselves. It's like we are back in kindergarten. "Now give Joe his eraser back and you too can have a peace prize."). The whole blow up is a little bunk really, but so is the award in itself.

But here we are debating over it. Bono's article is good. It's also scary. If you like Bono, you'll probably like the article. If you like Bono + Obama you'll really like it. There's your spoiler.

The world wants to believe in America again because the world needs to believe in America again. We need your ideas - your idea - at a time when the rest of the world is running out of them. - BONO

Pressure on the man? I doubt.
