You know the Rick-rolled thing relies on people looking at it before they reply. Weird use of it anyway. The set up has to be better than that.

I didn't know much about Bruce back in the mid 70s, but that River show was mind-blowing.
So, after a few tepid shows since then I was all excited to see him earlier this month.

MIND BLOWING. The greatest rock and roller on the planet.
The album follows a cycle of exuberance, independence, love, then loss. It's extraordinary. Every band has a high water mark (Close to the Edge, The Pretender, etc) and this is his. Well worth it.

US election 2016: The 40-year hurt

  • 26 March 2016

The London-based American writer and broadcaster Michael Goldfarb is frequently asked on air why this year's US election has turned out to be so unusual, and whether insurgent Republican candidate Donald Trump can really win. He has to give a short answer. The long answer, he argues here, involves going back 40 years.

Bruce Springsteen is coming to London with the River tour. At £170 for the cheapest pair, I can't afford to see the Boss any more, even if my body could handle standing on Wembley Stadium's pitch for three-and-a-half-hours in an early June drizzle.

It's interesting that Springsteen is re-exploring The River album again. Whenever the anger that simmers in America erupts and reminds the rest of the world that the country is troubled, he seems to be the cultural figure whose work offers an explanation.

In late 1986, midway through Ronald Reagan's second term of office, with the twin scourges of Aids and crack racing through American cities and New Deal ideas of economic and social fairness consumed by the Bonfire of the Vanities taking place on Wall Street, Britain's Guardian newspaper ran an editorial that said, "for good or ill, is becoming a much more foreign land".

I had just celebrated my first anniversary as an expat in London and wrote an essay trying to explain what America was like away from the places Guardian readers knew. I described the massive population dislocations that followed the long recession that had begun in the mid-70s. I referenced Springsteen. The piece ran under the headline "Torn in the USA".

I'm guessing that folks hope that there's a moment when the person steps into the voting booth and, despite the bluster, has some memory of what they've heard/read and think

In the Netherlands we have laws permitting abortion. We needed those laws to support the sad cases like medical need for an abortion or in case of rape. That’s how the discussion was held and this is why almost everybody, including me, was supporting those pro-abortion laws.

On this moment in the Netherlands abortion is as easy as going to the dentist. There is only one difference and that’s that abortion is completely free.

For any medical operation/action you need to have a reason, but you don’t have to come up with any reason for an abortion. Besides that for any medical operation you need a reference from a general practitioner. For abortion you need no medical reference at all.

Up to 24 weeks your baby can be removed. Up to 24 weeks you don’t call it your unborn baby in case of abortion. You call it a lump of cells. This is very important to pro-abortion human rights activists. This lump of cells has after 12 weeks a function brain and nerve system. In extreme cases it even survives an early birth after 21 weeks with the current medical advances.

In 2014 we had 31.000 abortions on a population of 16.8m citizens. Not even 1% of these abortions was because of medical needs or rape. At least 30000 ‘lumps of cells’ are removed because pregnancy did not suit the mother in some way.

We have laws for cattle to be slaughtered in a humane way. The cattle have a better death than the unborn baby.

Seeing the current situation around abortion in the Netherlands changed my opinion, or more exactly: opened my eyes that the current situation does allign with the situation most of us had in mind when the discussion was held.
A discussion about the current laws on abortion and the reality is impossible. You are immediately declared a right wing religious fundamentalist idiot.

I really would like to limit abortion to the cases that there is a pressing medical or ethical reason for abortion. On this moment a planned holiday or career opportunities are enough to kill a human and knowing this my father heart cries when I hear about the unnecessary deaths of thousands of babies in the Netherlands. I wish I could save some of them. They are very welcome to join my family.

I’m not completely aware of the laws in the USA but I guess they are about the same. I am aware that there will always be a good reason to abortion in extreme cases so I am not with the people that want to remove abortion in any case. But why can’t we have a discussion about the current situation? Is this like the initial reason we wanted to permit abortion laws or have we gone too far?
