Geldof worship

In the front page story yesterday on the Live8 concert in Hyde Park, we find the calm, studied, sober observations that we've come to expect from The Sunday Times:

Then the music and the mood gradually found their rhythm and, in a break between acts, a shaggy-haired prophet emerged from the jungle of giant amplifiers.

Dressed all in white with a black cap, Mahatma Geldof shuffled forward. “Hello,” he said. “Thanks for coming. It would have been a bit crap if nobody had showed up.”

So glad to see The Times maintaining its restraint and composure amidst a sea of emotion.
