It's time to nominate your choice as "The Coolest Person In The World".
What exactly is "cool", in a slangish sort of way? How about excellent, first-rate, somebody or something they did that we admire.....?
Your choice can be a politician (lottsa luck with THAT one!), a sports figure, your dad, Uma Thurman, a race car driver, a stoner rock and roller smoking a doobie, the geek planning assistant down the hall in cube 7, a movie star, a religious person, Stan, the person who helped you get out of the truck's way, a disc jockey banned from real radio and now on satellite radio, the kid in the back of the class who told Mr. Johnson what to do with his "History Of The War Of 1812" assignment, etc.
This Bear nominates: Bono.
IMHO he has always been cool. Lately he's been ultra-cool. He seems cool under pressure (as in talking with heads of states), he looks cool in the U2 videos, he interviews cool.
My choice. What's yours?
