Today’s Quote – 2007.09.29

“This is a song called, “Living In The Future,” but it’s really about what’s happening now, right now. It’s kind of about how the things that we love about America: the cheeseburgers, french fries, the Yankees batting in Boston, the Bill of Rights, v-twin motorcycles, Tim Russert’s haircut, trans fats and Jersey shore. . . We love all those things in the way that the womenfolk love Matt Lauer. That’s right. But over the past six years we’ve had to add to the American picture: rendition, illegal wiretapping, voter suppression, no habeas corpus, the neglect of our great city New Orleans and the people, an attack on the Constitution and the loss of our best young men and women in a tragic war. And this is a song about things that shouldn’t happen here, happening here.”

Bruce Springsteen*
