Teamsters: Deal like "new tires on a car that does not run"

Bono takes it personal and makes it personal

It's a little off of our general beat here at Eyes on Trade, but there's been some pretty funny coverage of an outburst by Irish rocker Bono at a recent conference on foreign aid.

Bushbono2 When scholars at the conference rightfully pointed out that no country has ever developed on the basis of foreign aid, Bono heckled some choice words from the audience.

He went on to say: "You'd think somebody farted in here when the words 'debt relief' came up - ooh, debt relief, that's so uncool," and praised U.S. Cold War strategery in Europe, and Ireland's low taxes - a pretty funny aside, since Bono and fellow bandmates have caught flack back home for tax avoidance.
