    Like many of you who live in New Jersey, I've been following the progress of the marriage-equality legislation currently being considered in Trenton. I've long believed in and have always spoken out for the rights of same sex couples and fully agree with Governor Corzine when he writes that, "The marriage-equality issue should be recognized for what it truly is -- a civil rights issue that must be approved to assure that every citizen is treated equally under the law." I couldn't agree more with that statement and urge those who support equal treatment for our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters to let their voices be heard now.

    Well I guess I forgive him now for backing NObama in his campaign.

    I've never really liked too much of his work, but he seems to be a genuinely nice guy. I heard that a child of one of his road crew had some really serious illness and Bruce paid for all of the medical bills out of his own pocket.

    I didn't pay much attention at the time, but the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame here in Cleveland had the third floor entirely about Bruce Springsteen and his career. All the little artifacts they had were at one time or another auctioned off by Bruce Springsteen for some charity event or another. I thought at the time how great it would be to leave behind that kind of altruistic legacy of your life.

    Well this is great news about "The Boss" speaking out in strong support for marriage equality in New Jersey. Hopefully the state senate was listening very carefully and start realizing that these religious right wing folks are dead wrong in their idiotic opposition to gay marriage.
