Bono Appears on Today Show

This morning Bono got up early to speak to Katie Couric on the Today Show. Speaking from Washington, D.C., Bono explained that he was in the U.S. capital to again bring attention to the AIDS emergency in Africa and to encourage Congressional members to pass a spending bill that will provide money for a global fund to fight HIV/AIDS. Likening the current stall in funding to a fire engine at a burning building with the hose turned off, Bono said he believed that the United States will fulfill its promise to help Africa once the people in power move beyond the bureaucratic red tape and “bullocks.”
