Rich Folks Play Together 

The AP tells us that rock stars and computer nerds like each other:
"When U2's lead singer came to Seattle over the weekend for a concert, there was only one logical place to stay -- the home of Bill Gates, who shares Bono's passion for Third World development and relief efforts.

'I was one of 20,000 screaming fans,' Microsoft Corp.'s co-founder Gates told Reuters. Gates, the world's richest man, said he got to know Bono through his work with his philanthropy."


I wonder if they share Bill Gates' desire to pay extremist Ralph Reed a $20,000 a month retainer to help advise on right wing Christian issues, like dumping support for gay employees of Microsoft? I wonder if this story came out because the other one jusy did, and this might drown it out?
