The Los Angeles Times (owned by a Chicago company-- that's *second* city, California, and don't you forget it) called for Bono, front man for U2, to be considered for the job as President of the World Bank.
Here's the editorial.
Here's an article about it.
I think it's great. I love the egalitarian spirit of the editorial, reminding us that government is of the people (not just for the people), not just of the self-identified experts who all too often ignore the public as something to be managed rather than the best manifestation of the public will. Government is for all of us -- and we should be helping to run things. Progressives especially need to remember that, and not leave leadership for other people.
