G8 Reveals Plan for Africa.
Kinda funny - back in the late eighties, when Rattle & Hum was released, Bono sang: Don't believe in rock 'n roll can really change the world / As it spins in revolutions, spirals and turns
I have a tendency to believe he was right back then. Hard to imagine the G8 leaders tuning into MTV and saying "Holy cow - look at all the people! We've gotta do something!"
Whatever the impetus, hurrah for all parties concerned. And all parties should be concerned. We can't ignore Africa any longer.
