***Bono has some wise words, believe it or not:
"Aid is just a stop-gap. Commerce [and] entrepreneurial capitalism takes more people out of poverty than aid."
This is Arthur Brooks:
"In dealing with poverty here and around the world, welfare and foreign aid are a Band-Aid. Free enterprise is a cure."

"Entrepreneurship is the most sure way of development."

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.The full tape went like this:
Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. Or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.
Dispatcher: OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?
Zimmerman: He looks black.

There was one really awkward moment with the American Indians. In the middle of the meeting, Joe Biden walked in wearing a Redskins jersey.
