"Blessed are the meek who scratch in the dirt/ For they shall inherit what's left of the earth"

Not much has been going on relevant to the topic of this blog lately, but I'm happy to be able to invite you to drop over to U2.com for a look at a video of Bono talking through one of the heretofore-unreleased Joshua Tree-era songs, "Wave of Sorrow." It's apparently a reflection on his time with World Vision in Ethiopia, but the reason I post it here is because it's interesting to watch him explain some of the Biblical allusions while he's singing along with the track. Appearances are made by Solomon, the Beatitudes (both new ones and paraphrased old ones), Ezekiel 37, and more. Check it out.
