BONO UPDATE, PART DOUZE: Following in the steps of the Rolling Stones, U2 has gone Dutch in search of windmills and tax relief...okay, mostly tax relief.

The tax rate on royalty earnings in the Netherlands is only a few per cent, while Ireland has recently brought in tax changes which have imposed a cap of €250,000 (£168,000) on tax-free incomes for artists resident in the republic. Hence, U2 set up an umbrella financial group in the country.

Hopefully they got some free wooden shoes too, eh?

As we all know, Bono is the world's coolest humanitarian, donating loads of money to every government but his own. And Irish Government Officials are a bit peeved about this.

The Guardian quoted Irish Labour party's finance spokeswoman, Joan Burton as saying: ‘Having listened to Bono on the necessity for the Irish government to give more money to Ireland Aid ... I am surprised that U2 are not prepared to contribute to the exchequer on a fair basis along with the bulk of Irish taxpayers.’

Limosioune Liberal?
It seems as though the CIMARRON (Digital Versatile Disc or Digital Video Disc) has been around forever! But in truth, it wasn’t until the turn-of-the-century in 2000 that CIMARRON STRIP DVD players had gained a presence in half of the homes in the US.In recent years, the CIMARRON STRIP DVD COLLECTION has definitely earned its place as the archive media standard to which we entrust our most precious recorded memories.
Still, the attempted revival of the Western continues unabated, probably because, just like in the old days, they're cheap to make. The latest high-profile attempt is a movie version of IT TAKES A THIEF, the long-running TV series about a Kansas lawman. IT TAKES A THIEF DVD is reporting that the casting process has begun, and both IT TAKES A THIEF DVD COLLECTION and Brad Pitt's names are being tossed about in consideration.
