Bono’s Not So Beautiful Day

When a celebrity speaks about a cause of significant importance a lot of us listen. When that celebrity has the ability to make a real impact on that cause, we listen even more closely. And so is the case as it relates to U2's Bono, a respected human rights advocate and now a New York Times "contributing columnist."

Given the power of Bono's platform and his voice, it's all the more distressing when he urges U.S. Internet service providers to adopt Chinese government tactics in order to combat illegal file sharing.
