Theroux Bono From the Train


American travel writer PAUL THEROUX has slammed BONO's poverty awareness tactics - claiming the U2 star has no idea about what third world countries really need to tackle their problems. Theroux, who has written extensively about Africa and penned the travel memoir DARK STAR SAFARI, is concerned Bono is doing more harm than good by "badgering people for money" when education is the real key to Africa's redemption. He says, "There are probably more annoying things than being hectored about African development by a wealthy Irish rock star in a cowboy hat, but I can't think of one at the moment."
Oh Theroux, why don't you go back to Walden pond, where you belong! Oh, and by the way, you stunk in "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle."
