Very good, as always

Last night I saw Bruce Springsteen live for (I think) the eleventh time. I thought it was a really good show, and the reviews in the Swedish tabloids today are indeed very positive (here and here). Personally, I really liked The Seeger Session versions of great songs like Atlantic City, The Ghost of Tom Joad, and The River. And American Land was a fantastic closing.
[Thanks for a great night out Henrik, Per and Jocke].

Since I am editor in chief, Aktuellt i Politiken has an article about Bruce and politics this week (here). And don’t miss our interview with Göran Persson or the editorial (ok, I wrote all those articles, but hey, this is my blog).

I am going to Washington DC on Friday. Since I followed the US elections on American soil in 2000, 2002, and 2004 it would be stupid to stay home now when the good side is likely to do well… It will also be a perfect opportunity to write some articles and catch up with all old friends in the DC area.

Speaking about the US elections, The New Republic has an article about why Mark Warner won’t run, but also an article suggesting that “as bad as the United States has been on Darfur, Europe has been worse” (here).

It is always interesting to read what an American libertarian (as I understand it) thinks about Sweden (here).
[Thanks Kevin]

I was at the Bruce concert too! It was excellent! First time for me though.

I look forward to hearing your reports from D.C.
