>>CBS MarketWatch reports that some News Organizations are barring employees from (or seriously urging them to avoid) attending the Bruce Springstein concerts for John Kerry.

I can't remember if he's doing fundraisers for Kerry or taking part in the Rock For Change tour, which is anti-Bush but not necessarily pro-Kerry. Springsteen may have even said he's not endorsing a candidate but just doesn't like Bush.

A letter to the editor in today's Herald (or was it Globe) implied
that people like Kerry contributed to the "spit on soldiers" reaction
post-Vietnam that Springsteen sings about in "Born in the USA" and the writer wondered why the Boss would want to support him.

No banners. No pop-ups. No kidding.
