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, let¹s face it, the man rocks.

Note!  The Bentley Library will be open for special extended hours on November 8th (this Friday, before the Nebraska game) from 5pm to 8 pm EST.

At 5:00 pm Bentley archivists Greg Kinney and Brian Williams will give a special presentation on “Michigan Football Firsts,” using rare original documents, photographs, and publications from the University of Michigan archives to highlight some of the notable firsts across 134 years of Michigan football — the first team and first game, first coach, first airplane trip and much more.

The hour-long presentation will be followed by extended viewing hours for the exhibit, “Harmon of Michigan” profiling the career of Michigan great Tom Harmon, along with showings of “One Saturday Afternoon,” a 1965 television feature celebrating the 25th anniversary of Harmon’s Heisman trophy winning season. The 30 minute long “One Saturday Afternoon” features Harmon game footage and interviews with Harmon, Fritz Crisler and Forest Evashevski.

The U-M Bentley Historical Library is located at 1150 Beal Avenue in Ann Arbor.
