Oddly, just a day after The New York Post's lame attempt at swiftboating Sting and Trudie Styler's Rainforrest Foundation, The Police and Mayor Bloomberg announced that the band will play their final gig - ever - in New York City and the tickets will raise one million dollars for Bloomberg's Million Trees project - to make the city "greener." Money from the concert will also go to public television channels in New York City and Long Island.

So who knows, maybe Fox News, who surprisingly defended Sting and Trudie from the Post, will turn on them.

Anyway, lots of credit to the guys for donating lots of money to good causes. Yes, the band have earned millions and millions of dollars from this tour, so it's easy to be cynical. But I believe public televison and the enviornment are important issues, and they are important to the guys in the band - or at least Sting.
