There was a great writeup on this in the tri-city news about 2 weeks back. Sounds like a great old space that's being repurposed and reused for this.

So... let me see if I've got this correct, given the statements spewed from your small cranium. Bruce Springsteen shouldn't be singing about how bad things are politically, or otherwise, in the USA because we are where we want to be as a country and everything is going as planned... ummm, yeah, your obviously on your own little Island in your mind. In regard to the Vietnam War... According to you, an individual would have actually had to serve in the Vietnam War to actually have an opinion on whether or not it was a bad thing. I can see in your simple mind you have actually taken the lyrics as verbatim to actually having served in a war rather than expression of a shit situation. To argue otherwise would pretty much support the fact that some actually had a good time in Vietnam and unless you were there you couldn't say it was bad. Congratulations, Dominick, you've reached the level of idiot.
