Happy Birthday Boss

Today is Bruce Springsteen's 55th Birthday. This is a weird highfaluting thing to say, but is something I've been thinking, particularly in light of the Jewish high holidays -- and my own Judaism obviously -- not ever really meaning a whole lot to me other than a respect for my family & ancestors. I guess a lot of people take comfort in religion and that's fine if it comes naturally. But I've always felt "religion" should be that which gives you comfort, and since I was about 12, as much as anything, that's been the music of one Mr. Springsteen. So Happy Birthday Boss. "I believe in the faith that can save me."
