More than great and I'm only 25 mins. into it.

Funny stuff on the college rivalries.

And how about these quotes which I have already posted to my Facebook.  ;)

"We must not let this economic recession become a moral recession."

Starting about 23:47, Bono talks about The Clash, U2 and social activism.

"The Clash were like a Public Service Announcement with guitars."

"I'd just like to point out that none of your professors, not a single one, not ever, has ever drawn or is likely to draw the connection between the Arab Spring and The Clash."

He is brilliantly funny!!

Hopefully, we will have this available to watch since it's now over.

Wow. That was a great speech. Very entertaining. I like Bono's approach to this. Not too serious, but serious enough to get the point across. Sometimes I forget how funny Bono can be.

By the way, the tint in his classes is the best color he's worn, I think.

I wish those glasses were still available. I should've bought a pair when I contemplated buying. I regret it.

The Clash beat him to that line with the song Know Your Rights off of Combat Rock. A nice tip of the hat to an all-time great band.
