That Bono Fatigue site is great. Just what I needed a few years ago when my Bono heart went Bono dry.

Do Christians love Christian celebrities because it make us feel that we can be cool too? Or that we are cool by association?

I know I like it when a celebrity/artist etc turns out to be a Christian, but I am not sure if my motives are pure.

What a shame the NYC to London thing doesn't seem to work anymore. It gave regular street directions for getting from the heart of NYC to the docks, then step #24 was 'swim 3,400 miles', before the instructions continued on English soil.
