Haiti Telethon: Excess of Restraint in the Pursuit of Extravagant Generosity

I wasn’t able to watch the Haiti Telethon tonight, but the NYT has a very good review of it.

The bottom line for tonight’s star studded extravaganza was that everyone “showed excess of restraint in the pursuit of extravagant generosity, ” in other word it wasn’t about the stars who performed and answered phones, it was all about raising money for Haiti.

U2 sent out an email tonight about their new song that will be available on ITunes tomorrow: 

“With Haiti in mind, Edge and Bono have collaborated with Jay-Z, Rihanna and producer Swizz Beatz on a new song, ‘Stranded’. Written, recorded, performed and released… all within a week. More here.
