Anybody live in Portland?

From U2 log: The World Affairs Council of Oregon has announced that Bono will be the opening speaker of its International Speaker Series on October 20.  "He will speak about Africa and the need for concerted high-level action on third world debt, HIV/AIDS, and trade policies."  Guess the schedule fit in well with that of the National Civil Rights Museum, who are giving him their international Freedom Award at a ceremony in Memphis (actually, on the site of Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination) on October 18th.

In book news, the Washington Times is working on an article.  Also, for New England readers, I will be speaking at Soulfest next weekend.  Tickets still available!
