Springsteen and the election
Yesterday, at work, an apprentice, who has been nicknamed ‘Creampuff’, to his naīve indignation, mentioned that the song playing on the radio was written by Bruce Springsteen. I said, “I know. I saw him play the night before the last presidential election. It was wonderful ... it felt great, the atmosphere was so pleasant, it was electric, peaceful. It was great and then, the next day, the rotten bastards stole the election. Yeah, he sang, Never Surrender, and then they did.” Creampuff, and another fellow in the crew, had been there too. We commiserated for a few moments and then continued with the wire pull.
