Glory days

Observer Viewpoint | Wednesday, February 4, 2009

I am writing in response to Brian Conway’s criticism (“Boss goes wrong,” Feb. 3) of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band’s electrifying performance Sunday night. I question the judgment of a collegiate student that finds an inconsequential amount of “crotching” more offensive than Janet Jackson’s exposed breast. Springsteen proved that he hasn’t gone anywhere, and that his new album, “Working on a Dream” will reach high atop the charts just as many have before. By the way, no matter how much Brian might wish, the kneeslide into the camera was not an intentional exposure of Bruce’s leather-pants crotch. The Boss continues to rock.
