While watching the Grammy's, Vanessa and I kept saying to each other how U2 stands heads and shoulders above the rest of the music world. Their rendition of Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own was fantastic. When they won for Veritgo, The Edge, U2's guitar player, dedicated the award to his daughter Sian. It was moving and beautiful. I mentioned to Ness that I had heard a rumor that his daughter is sick. So, we went to U2.com, and on their message boards, I simply asked the question "What is Edge's daughter sick with?" Many people read the thread. Few posted. No one would say. I did a Google search and found a site that was saying she has lukemia. I went back to the thread and posted that I had read that. The next 15 posts were all about how we as fans need to respect people's privacy. When I got up in the morning, the thread - and all that mentioned The Edge's daughter in any way - had been deleted. Strange. If you want people to not talk about it, don't mentioned it in front of the world at the Grammy's. I am still stoked (did I just use the word "stoked"?) about the concert in May, though!
