THERE'S NOTHING ABOUT THIS THAT DOESN'T LEAVE DOUGHNUT STYLE GREASE ON YOUR FINGERS: A charity called MusiCares awarding the likes of Bono and Billy Joel prizes for doing charidee watch. As we've said before, we're sure Bono's heart is in the right place, but praising a man who heads up an organisation that brings in an annual USD69m for doing a little bit of good work is precious little different from handing out knighthoods or breaking into choruses of "For he's a jolly good fellow" whenever he walks in the room. Surely this sort of prize should be given to people whose work has been less geared to getting their photo taken with the President, and more towards the sort of people whose actions are less self-aggrandising?
