Springsteen


Springsteen is a force of moral good, not in a sanctimonious way like some others I could mention, not because he and Obama are pals or because he supports Amnesty International or sends money to striking miners, but because of what he does on stage.  Coming away from a Springsteen concert one emerges better.  We have felt joy in the grand singalong anthems he is so adept at, and we have been reduced to tears by songs of defeat and victory.  We have had, in both its meanings, a good time. Such a talent isn't complicated.  It is just very rare. Gawd bless you, Bruce.
