"Well tonight thank God it's them instead of you"

Marginal Revolution's Africa Fact of the Day is actually quite infuriating:

Advertising Age calculates that around $100 million has been spent blanketing billboards and magazines with images of Bono and other "celebrities", while the total sum raised for Africa is $18 million.

Just to be clear... Total spent on making Bono more famous = $100 million.

Total spent on drugs for Africans = $18 million.
