They won't be listening to a press release from us.
They will be listening to Bono's bono-headed rants.
Both of these are unfortunate. Two many negatives in that sentence made
it hard to decipher.
The "they" I am most worried about is the special 308 folks who were
sent home to their ridings until March. They have tended to fall for
these rants from famous people, and may even bring up "philanthropist
Bono" as further justification to harm the economy and human rights/etc
with new "Copyright" law.
