band's own songs have reached the perennial status
of these classics. And no U2 concert is complete without
raising awareness about certain issues. And what better
place than Washington DC, where Bono mingles regularly
with high-profile politicians lobbying for the Drop
the Debt campaign.
Rock's Most Outspoken Conscience tried to open hearts
and minds as he made brief declarations about an array
