Your overestimation the average here Matt. It's more like the funny papers,
People, the National Enquirer, Opra and the latest cops reality show
(bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gonna do?)
Let's just get totally honest here. The average person in the US doesn't
have a clue on what's happening in their own backyard, much less the
rest of the world.
Besides, sports stars aren't know for their brain power, no matter
how smart their PR people try to make them seem.
Bono and U2 try not only to keep on top of what's happening in the
world, they even get to go out and meet the people making the news
when they can. Just think about how many famous people in many areas
U2 has met and even become friends with. U2 are a group of very sociable
and bright people. A good group to be fans of ;)
