George Clooney is way cooler than I will ever be. It’s ok, I know that. I’ve just accepted the fact that no matter how much money I make, or how successful I grow to be, Clooney will always reign cooler. So it didn’t surprise me at all when I heard that the Georgemeister just racked up another “cool” point on the ol’ game of life.

This week, the United Nations appointed George Clooney, an official “messenger of peace.” Now what exactly does that mean? Is it just some kind of a made up title, like “Director Of FEMA?” No, in fact the organization has entrusted Clooney to use his title and reputation to help promote peacekeeping activities around the world.

No stranger to peace, Clooney, is well known for doing his part for the sake of the globe. Last April, Clooney set up the charity, Not On Our Watch, with fellow actors Don Cheadle, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon to help raise funds for Darfur. To date, the charity has raised 9.3 million dollars.

In 2006, Clooney delivered a speech to the UN Security Council, in which he said that the genocide in Darfur was taking place “on your watch”. Clooney is the 9th “messenger of peace” and will be joining the company of: conductor Daniel Barenboim, author Paulo Coelho, cellist Yo-Yo Ma and film star Michael Douglas.

Hey George, I’m not sure if your new position requires a “first mate” or “second in command” or anything, but the title, “Assistant Messenger Of Peace” sure has a real nice ring to it. I travel lightly and have a pleasant speaking voice. I’ll have my people call your people.
