Paul Harvey news, didn' pay attention who's sitting in for Paul, just said Annie Lennox and maybe what's-his-name from the Eurythmics were asked to participate in an anti-Bush concert. She replied something like "Thanks for the sentiment, but as I'm British this isn't my fight."

Now maybe she likes Bush or maybe she doesn't. But I like her even more now because of this.

My fiancee just saw Annie Lennox and Sting in concert earlier this week


... certainly no politics mentioned at the concert AFAIK.

Good for her! Y'know, I'd have a lot less problems with people no matter who they supported if they simply showed some judgement & maturity like this.

Amen to that. I might even be able to watch The Hunt for Red October without wincing.

When I saw Sting was touring, I expected some anti-Bush sentiments at his concerts, so I am surprised that you say there wasn't.

I saw them last week in Charlotte, no political messages there either.

Though I am suprised at Ms. Lennox' logical choice in this matter... I can assure you that she IS typical of the bleedin' hearts when it comes to philosophy.

Still if all the bleedin' hearts would act in this mature manner, I would be fine with them.

+1,000,000,000

Score one for Ms. Lennox.

She's Scot, huh? So much for the news getting their stories straight.

Figured she would be a real Lib. But I still respect her staying out of the politics.

Is she a Lesbian?

I've always thought she was sort of hot.

Recording artists who get involved in politics are as stupid as if Bill O'Reilly started making records.



I see nothing wrong with celebrities getting involved in polotics any more than Mrs. Smith on the corner getting involved. They pay taxes and they have have a say in their governemtn. However, I have a problem when they use their celebrity as the platform for their politicism. They are just as educated about politics, if not, less than your average Joe.

Somehow, I think you would be disappointed if it turned out that way.
