Quote of the Day: Extraordinary

From Bono (described in my Sojourner's email as a "rock star and anti-poverty activist"):

It's extraordinary to me that the United States can find $700 billion to save Wall Street and the entire G8 can't find $25 billion dollars to saved 25,000 children who die every day from preventable diseases.

Thanks Sojourners. That is extraordinary.

I get sojo.net mail too and saw that.

It does make you stop - we are so screwed up.

Oh, right on. Hadn't read my Sojo mail in days and days. Thanks for highlighting this.
