That says a lot

Springsteen is a gifted musician who speaks eloquently for the working class. I wish we could hear more of this kind of thing, from more people.

Did he himself come up from a hardscrabble background? Well, not exactly. I knew his mother professionally; she was a fairly highly-paid secretary in a big city. (Intensely proud of him of course.) I was mildly surprised that his mother wasn't a factory worker or something like that.

It doesn't really matter: he gets it, I think. I wish more of the people in high places had more contact with what's really going on out here.
