I rarely read Rolling Stone as A) it sucks and B) critics in general suck but by this time of the month with this much travel I have read every other magazine out there. So as I could not find a book to pick up at the airport, as I actually read literature and not The Last Lecture or James Patterson, I was stuck with buying RS to help pass through the next 4+ hours.
The saving grace was U2 was on the cover with a fairly decent article on them inside that included interviews so kudos to RS. I am beyond biased when it comes to U2 as everyone knows but this gem from Mr. Bono bears repeating especially from a fellow Catholic –
“There’s no doubt about the fact that I have a wild streak and I’d be very capable of setting fire to myself. So, you know, I don’t go to church for the view”
Man I could not agree with that anymore based on where I come from mentally. I still think that at least 20% is always on fire by my own hand but at least I am far from consumed at this point of life.
