Piper At The G8s Of Dawn

It doesn't thrill me like it would have ten or fifteen years ago, but I was happy to read that Roger Waters and Pink Floyd have briefly reunited to perform at Live 8 "to persuade the G8 leaders to make huge commitments to the relief of poverty." It's nice that cross boys can shrug a grudge aside from time to time to the benefit of those less fortunate.

The related news from this weekend is that the G8 has agreed to write off 55 billion US dollars owed to it by 38 poverty stricken countries. And the concert hasn't yet begun. My friend, Sam Davidson, wrote about this with more eloquence and links at his blog. Read up and learn more.
