Springsteen's Indictment

You may have read about Bruce Springsteen's performance on Sunday in New Orleans. Here's video from the event (note: the clip, from MSN, seems to require Internet Explorer, rather than Firefox or other non-Microsoft browsers).

Bruce's sound bite attack of the day on the Bush administration comes about 25 seconds into the clip: "The criminal ineptitude makes you furious. This is what happens when political cronyism guts the very agencies that are supposed to serve American citizens in times of trial and hardship. This is what happens when people play political games with other people's lives."

Springsteen then dedicated a Depression-era song, "How Can A Poor Man Stand Such Times and Live?," to "President Bystander."
