Bono Bugs Paul Martin

According to nme.com, Bono is not happy with the prime minister of Canada, Paul Martin, for not keeping his promise to deliver foreign aid:

"The U2 singer said he was 'bewildered' by Paul Martin, claiming he had failed to increase Canada’s aid contributions to the equivalent of 0.7 per-cent of its gross national product, as he had previously promised. 'We were looking for Canada to lead rather than be a laggard,' said Bono in a CBC radio interview. 'This is no time to just turn inward. I know there are problems here at home. But don't lose your focus, Prime Minister, on how history will remember this moment.'"

So please start peeling off those (Canadian) dollar bills and slappin' 'em down: One hundred! Two Hundred! 0.7 of your GNP!
