More on Bono's Tax Hypocrisy

I previously have blogged (see list below the fold) the flap over Bono's arranging his music business affairs to escape Irish taxes.  Here is the latest chapter:  What Bono Says and What He Does; There’s a Well-Documented Reason the Do-Gooder Can’t Put His Money Where His Mouth Is:

After playing the Obama inauguration a couple of months back, the pop star Bono flew back home to a rare barrage of hostile headlines. As you know, the global do-gooder wants us to send more of our money to Africa. So why is he sending his money to the Netherlands?

Why blog the crassly foolish version of the Bono story, when there are ten other Bono tax stories out there that tell it like it is - that Bono is a hypocrite and should pay his taxes like everyone else?
