Uh-oh. Can there possibly be backlash from the Springsteen endorsement? :wink:

Posted By: katiemccYou don't sell your soul in order to save it. Very true. In the words of that great political philosopher, Mr. Springsteen - We've got God on our side We're just trying to survive What if what you do to survive Kills the things you love? - from "Devils and Dust"

Posted By: rastroBruce Springsteen is not a judicial scholar. Certainly not by education. But, from the available evidence he has a better understanding of the Constitution than John Yoo or Alberto Gonzales.

You're misreading (as usual, apparently) decisions and writings that are not as simplistic as you assert. As for Mr. Springsteen - "the poets down here don't write nothing at all, they just stand back and let it all be". Something can be true, even if you hear it in a song lyric.

Posted By: lewisinsovThe point that I previously made was that a "living Constitution" may need to be reinterpreted to deal with the new post-9/11 paradigms. What was interesting were the responses that suggested that the Constitution was being trampled on and that some things cannot be changed. Either you accept that it is organic or not. You can't have it both ways. Well, if that's your point, it's a simplistic view of the debate. The "living constitution" doesn't mean that anything goes. It's a misapplication of the argument to say that a theory that pushes the envelope on what is a constitutional "right", can be used to backtrack and take the U.S. back to a pre-constitutional mindset about torture. The Bush side doesn't think that it's reinterpreting the Constitution. At least, they don't feel comfortable making that argument. That's why they are trying to hide what they are doing. "Post 9/11" is an argument used in an attempt to justify many sins. The challenge for Americans is to remember (as ML1 pointed out via Mr. Springsteen's lyric) - "You know that flag flying over the courthouse Means certain things are set in stone Who we are, what we'll do and what we won't."

The "official" word from Springsteen's publicist, Shore Fire Media, is that tickets for the Meadowlands and the Garden go on sale September 10. That seems odd to me. Usually, I think they go on sale on a weekend. In any event, it will be interesting if anyone thinks they'll be able to do any business in NJ on Monday morning, September 10.

New Springsteen CD Edited

Oldstone - The new song actually reminds me of songs written for the Asbury Jukes by Springsteen or Steve Van Zandt. A horn track would fit just perfectly into it.

Springsteen To Tour? Edited

Aug 21, 2007 at 9:57am
More rumors. From Rolling Stone - Details Leak of Fall Bruce Springsteen Tour Bruce Springsteen?s manager Jon Landau told Rolling Stone last week that the tour for Springsteen?s upcoming album Magic ?hasn?t been fully decided,? but according to one haphazard Ticketmaster page that went up this weekend, it?s been decided that he?s playing the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota with the E Street Band on November 2nd. The page appeared this weekend and has been since taken down, but we?ve saved the details for posterity: The floor appears to be general admission, just like the Rising tour of 2002 and ?03. Tickets go on sale next Saturday at 10:00 AM, so expect an announcement of the whole tour sometime next week. He?s keeping the prices relatively low, just $55 to $85. Word is the tour begins in early October, soon after Magic is released. Possible dates, from a Variety website - 10/2, 10/3 Hartford 10/5, 10/6 Philly 10/9, 10/10 E. Rutherford, N.J. 10/14, 10/15 NYC 10/21 Chicago 10/22 St. Paul, Minn. 10/26 Oakland 10/28, 10/29 LA (Forum) 11/4 Cleveland 11/5 Detroit 11/11, 11/12 Washington 11/18, 11/19 Boston And, below, a seating chart that appeared, and then was pulled, from a Ticketmaster page. Now, everyone just calm down, and get back to work. :wink:

The Backstreets site has been tracking ticket announcements that have briefly popped up on Ticket master and other sites, and then disappeared. Tickets could go on sale as early as this weekend, perhaps. The new album with the E Street Band comes out on October 2. And some guy on the Springsteen message board has provided a handy countdown clock for that -

How to Be a Citizen of NJ Edited

Aug 16, 2007 at 11:42am
The host of the Late Late Show on CBS, Craig Ferguson, is trying to become a ?citizen? of as many states and municipalities as he can. As it states on the website for his project: ?Fueled by his longing to become a United States citizen, Craig Ferguson has launched a campaign to become an honorary citizen of towns and cities across America. Now you can follow the host of ?The Late Late Show? as he receives honorary citizenship documents from governors and mayors across the country.? Apparently, Governor Corzine has ?granted? him an honorary citizenship of New Jersey, but with some conditions ? Dear Craig - I understand you are seeking to become an honorary citizen of the state of New Jersey. Before we bestow this great honor upon you, however, I feel the need to explain to you the burdens and responsibilities of being a citizen of the great Garden State. First, anytime anyone refers to the New York Giants, New York Jets or New York Red Bulls, you have to sigh, roll your eyes and remind that person that all of those teams actually play in New Jersey. Same goes for the Statue of Liberty. Second, anytime someone only knows New Jersey because "Tony Soprano is from there," you are required to mention that there is an endless list of notable and accomplished individuals who lived in or are from New Jersey, including two current Supreme Court Justices, Albert Einstein, and Joe Piscopo. Third, and perhaps most importantly, you must immediately adjust your musical tastes so that Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi and Queen Latifah are the only artists on your iPod. This is non-negotiable. Finally, enclosed with this letter, please find a chip that is to be placed directly on your shoulder (left or right). This chip must be clearly visible to anyone who suggests that New Jersey is simply "the state between New York City and Philadelphia." If you are prepared to take all of those steps, I am thrilled to grant you honorary status as a citizen of New Jersey. Governor Jon S. Corzine The rest of you, please note and act accordingly. :thumbup:

Welcome Baby Matt Foley Edited

Wow. Congratulations. And may I say, that is a big kid. :thumbup: You have so much fun ahead of you. But be careful, because it goes by so fast. On the plus side, they turn into really interesting people. Since songs are being contributed - Well now on a summer night in a dusky room Come a little piece of the Lord’s undying light Crying like he swallowed the fiery moon In his mother’s arms it was all the beauty I could take Like the missing words to some prayer that I could never make In a world so hard and dirty so fouled and confused Searching for a little bit of God’s mercy I found living proof - B. Springsteen, Living Proof.

got a b.s. "Menendez is anti-Italian-American" postcard in the mail...did you? Edited

Posted By: tomThey want a NJ celebrity and all they can get is Joe Piscopo? We've got Springsteen.Oh, yeah! :swingin: And his Italian mom, too! Found the annoying message from Joe Piscopo on our answering machine when we got home last night. Nice to hear that he's continuing to encourage the "I'm from Joisey/Oh yeah, what exit?" image of our state. You can "talk back", sort of, if you visit his website ( Sure, it's a useless and unproductive waste of time, but then again, so are the phone calls.
