Fog, intensely thick, rising from Lac Bienne and stretching its fingers high onto the Lignières-Plateau de Diesse after wholly filling the valley below the plateau.

What/Who do 'Benefit Concerts' benefit?

Sir Bob Geldof's recent Live 8 Benefit Concert got me to wondering if these very popular benefit concerts really make any difference. i suppose they are a means to draw attention to humanistic issues, but do they bring any real solutions to the humanitarian causes which they are intended to address?

every time a new benefit concert is announced, i always think back to the first one i can remember (and as far as i know, the original) ..... The Concert for Bangladesh

  1. Well, I think it's amazing they think giving dictators even more money will make a difference. That is basically what they are asking for, and it makes no sense.
