What’s it feel like when you get something you didn’t ask for, Bono?
The rear door fell off of a Learjet carrying U2 lead singer Bono. Luckily, he’s OK and is already writing a very boring album about it.

Qatar: the Worst?
Qatar has said it will try to find “creative solutions” for allowing gay fans to attend the 2022 World Cup in their country, where homosexuality is illegal, the same response they gave when asked about allowing fans to consume alcohol, which is also illegal. So far they have dismissed uncreative proposals such as “become tolerant.”

Native Advertising vs Opinion-Editorial, what’s the big difference anyway?
Time and the Wall Street Journal each published op-eds against Net Neutrality, but each failed to disclose that they received money from Internet service providers. Neither paper has been taken to task for past op-eds that have included “Coca-Cola: Delicious Or Refreshing?” and “AIG Is A-OK.”
