I dare say it makes one a bad person to be amused by this:
A spokeswoman for Bono's "charity" ONE Campaign explained all:
True enough. As their website explains: At ONE, we believe the fight against poverty is not about charity, but about justice and equality.“
ONE "does advocacy work, not charity work."
Especially for its DC-based employees who might otherwise endure a pretty tough time.
(To be fair: they're right to emphasise trade issues and the like and correct too that charity is only part of the deal for Africa. Nevertheless, there are any number of advocacy groups working these fields plenty of whom manage to spend less than 50% of their income on salaries.)
