How Bruce Springsteen's 'Born to Run' Captured the Decline of the ...


(A better stinky pun, today!  And, it’s a phrase that I frequently use.  Sometimes, I’ll go with more than a bit of a stretch, when I think that something is obviously false, or a lie.  But, who amongst us hasn’t stretched the truth a little, from time to time?

No new clue words today.  Maybe we’ve maxed out?  Three of the four jumbles came up as new though.  We’ve definitely seen “tomot” before.  The three vowel words almost always take at least an extra look.  “Aarmce” did for me.  But, just a second or two.  I saw “fibula” immediately, because that’s the only bone I’ve ever broken in my life.  It happened when I fell on the ice, and sprained my ankle severely, back on 01/11/11.  A date which will live in infamy . . . for me.  The answer letter layout was a nifty thirteen letter jumble.  Again, nothing obvious about it.  The cartoon and the clue/question just set up the final answer perfectly.

It looks like that’s a “Born In The U.S.A.” t-shirt.  Far from my favorite Bruce Springsteen song.  I really didn’t know about Bruce before “Born to Run”.  But, after it came out, and to this day, I don’t think you can beat his first three albums.  So much angst, grit and urgency, and they just rocked!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Bruuuce was a voice of strength and guttural dignity when so much was being destroyed by Reagan and his minions. I didn’t get too deep into his music, lest for its unfortunately but inevitable association with the 80s. But in the long run, he was one of the best things of that unsettling decade, the first we couldn’t count with John Lennon to yell at the system with. A curious thing to think about that is, we never thought it’b be impossible to come back from that, and look at where we are now.

    Lots of well known folk were either born, or lived for a time, in Long Branch! Especially, a lot of athletes. — YUR

    I lived about six doors down the block – and across the street – from John and Yoko, on the night that he was shot. I remember waking up around 3:00 AM to the sound of vigilers singing Beatles songs. Very surreal moment. Found out he been killed around 7:00 AM, when I turned on WNEW-FM (102.7FM) radio. Bruce has done a good job, picking up the mantle from John. His music – and message – got a lot more serious from then on.

    But, I still prefer his work from the ’70s! — YUR
