AS THEY GET OLDER, THE CLOSER THEY DRIVE TO THE RIGHT: Disappointing to see that Bruce Springsteen has given his support to The War On Terror (TM), according to the BBC, who themselves put it at the door of the Times. Releasing his album of September 11th songs (thus beating Coldplay's similar opus to the marketplace), Bruce says "It was deliberative, which I wasn't counting on. I expected a lot less from this administration." Hmmm. We must have missed the deliberations, somehow, because we could have sworn that the bombing of Afghanistan back even further into the Stone Age was done on a "You're either with us, or you're next" basis. Springsteen has said that he has no intention of running for political office, which makes his politician's stance on the "war" even more surprising.
