Live8 today

I was hoping that Bob Geldof gets the numbers he wants in Edinburgh today. But apparently, THAT is not a problem! I hope the weather stays good for all the concerts. Keith and I didn't meet anyone else yesterday wearing the white band, but I am sure they were out there. I heard that 6,000,000 have bought them.
I am finding it very overwhelming, but whether it will have any lasting effect. Surely the G8 cannot ignore this?
