The writers of this blog are not music critics, and they don't consider a second (or third, fourth or fifth) mortgage to be a perfectly reasonable course of action to pay for front-row tickets, but despite being a whole lot more middle aged than they were when they first put \x34Born in the U.S.A.\x34 or \x34The River\x34 down on the turntable, still feels like Bruce has something -- OK, a lot of things -- to say about our country and the way we live our lives, things that not a lot of other artists are saying. And whether he's talking about the knife that can cut this pain from your heart, the house that's waiting for you to walk in or what that flag flying over the courthouse means, he's nailing down feelings that are so universal that they can raise your spirits and break your heart at the same time. Plus, letąs face it, the man rocks.

The price of journalism!



Anderson Cooper went temporarily blind last week while on assignment in Portugal, the CNN host explained on his daytime talk show Tuesday.

"I am in this beautiful coastal area shooting this story for 60 Minutes involving the water," Cooper says. "I don't want to go into details [on] what the story was, but I am on the water for two hours shooting this story and it's an overcast day... I wake up in the middle of the night and it feels like my eyes are on fire, my eyeballs, and I think, 'Oh, maybe I have sand in my eyes or something.' I douse my eyes with water. Anyway, it turns out I have sunburned my eyeballs and I go blind. I went blind for 36 hours."



Cooper tweeted out a photo wearing an eye patch over one eye, joking, "That's my new Match.com profile picture by the way. I think that's going to really work for me."
