Sometimes when the stock market is falling, the president is doing something moronic again, deadlines to file motions are coming due and past-due, clients are calling and emailing and texting non-stop, and a judge who hasn't read case law since "walkin" Lawton Chiles was governor of Florida denies your motion, you just need a little of The Boss.
Is there any more poetic rock song than Thunder Road?
"You can hide 'neath your covers and study your pain
make crosses from your lovers, throw roses in the rain
Waste your summer praying in vain
for a savior to rise from these streets
Well now I'm no hero, that's understood
All the redemption I can offer, girl, is beneath this dirty hood
With a chance to make it good somehow
Hey what else can we do now?
Except roll down the window and let the wind blow back you hair...
From. Thunder Road, Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band.
