As newspapers fall out of favor in place of internet articles it’s good to know that someone still takes the time to write to the editor.[photogallerylink id=35154 align=right]
[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Bruce Springsteen[/lastfm] (Yes, the boss himself!) wrote a letter to the editor of Asbury Park Press in response to the article, As poverty rises in NJ, cuts target aid.
Springsteen’s political leanings are no secret. What Springsteen had to say:
“These are voices that in our current climate are having a hard time being heard, not just in New Jersey, but nationally. Finally, your article shows that the cuts are eating away at the lower edges of the middle class, not just those already classified as in poverty, and are likely to continue to get worse over the next few years. I’m always glad to see my hometown newspaper covering these issues.”
