Parting thoughts

BACK IN his super-earnestbleeding-heart-on-his-sleeve days, the young Bono sang, "I can't change the world, but I can change the world in you" (this being years before he actually went out and tried to change the world), and, in a way, that's what I've tried to do in my year as ombudsman.

Speedy delivery, improved online edition
