Five things to know about the 13 suspensions issued by on Monday in the Biogenesis drug case:YER OUT! Four AllStars were penalized , , and and that could affect the pennant races. If their teams make the playoffs, those clubs will decide whether to welcome them back for the postseason. and wound up in federal court, cost himself a chance at the Hall of Fame, became an outcast because of the steroids cloud, and yet more major leaguers tried to cheat with performanceenhancing drugs. I think we can all agree that the penalties arent harsh enough, Atlanta second baseman said. If we want to get this game cleaned up the way its supposed to be, if you get caught one time its just youre done. This isnt the Olympics, where failed doping tests can cost athletes their medals. That kind of bugs some guys, too. Washington reliever still thinks about a home run he gave up last year to Jordany Valdespin, one of the suspended 13. Youre like, those guys are doing stuff thats affecting my career and theyre not playing the game the right way, he said. It leaves a sour taste in your mouth.IT AINT OVER: A scandal that hovered over baseball all season could linger into winter. Suspended through 2014, Rodriguez is set to appeal and can play until an arbitrator rules. That isnt likely until November or December. From Nicaragua, he spoke in Spanish and delivered a warning to fellow Latin Americans. To all the players who leave so much behind in their countries, who come to this country and youre ignorant about a lot of things, be careful with who you associate with, people who surround you that may be only interested in financial gains, who may not be interested in your personal wellbeing, he said through an interpreter.

Not that everyone sees it that way, of course. His manager Jon Landau, for instance the man who, as a Rolling Stone rock critic, came up with the now legendary claim: I have seen rocknrolls future, and its name is Bruce Springsteen has described Magic as a very bright record, the primary intention of which is not political. Quite obviously, in that case at least, they absolutely werent listening to the same record as the rest of us.
For me, the success of this latest batch of songs resides in the way Springsteen approaches his subject. Firstly, the big issue is never mentioned directly, looming intangibly instead, as he depicts the effects of combatants death or disability on friends and relatives in the US a distancing technique that has the paradoxical effect of bringing the war closer to home. Secondly, in order to convey the longerterm ramifications of the conflict, several songs feature projections into a scarred, uncertain future, rather than into the romantic past that once dominated his albums. And thirdly, there is or there appears to be, I should perhaps phrase it in the circumstances an underlying theme of illusion and deception running throughout the album that surely allegorises the ethical sleightofhand that has thrown his countrys moral compass out of alignment. Betrayal is a constant companion in these songs, whether its the craven media lambasted in Radio Nowhere as Bruce vainly spins his radio dial searching for a world with some soul, the speculators who made their money on the blood you shed in Gypsy Biker, or the sinkin sound of somethin righteous goin under as the groundswell of post9/11 patriotism is hijacked to perfidious ends in Livin in the Future. As Springsteen warns in the titletrack, Trust none of what you hear, and less of what you see.
That advice, however, might well be heeded by those of us myself included who would try to confine Springsteen to their own preferred interpretation of him. Just as there are many fans particularly nonAmerican fans who like to characterise Bruce as a man of virtue and probity, one of the last holdouts for an increasingly tarnished set of American values, there are doubtless millions of others whod prefer to draw a discreet veil over the consciencetweaking concerns of The Ghost of Tom Joad, and simply exult in The Bosss capacity for goodtime, boozy rocknroll fun. And who is to say they are wrong?
Certainly not Springsteen himself, who remains a firm believer in the notion of individuals having multiple selves. During his VH1 Storytellers show in 2005, he recounted an amusing tale of how a couple had spied him leaving a New Jersey stripjoint and upbraided him in the parking lot, telling him he shouldnt be there. Im not, he responded mischievously. I am simply an errant figment of one of Bruces many selves. I drift in the ether over the highways and byways of the Garden State, often touching down in imageincongruous but fun places. Bruce does not even know I am missing. He is at home right now, doing good deeds! Which is a lot more fun and considerably more polite than just telling them to mind their own damn business, the inalienable right of any public figure pestered during their private time.
For a long time, however, Bruce Springsteen would not have turned any heads as he exited a strip club. An ineffectual highschool student sustained by dreams of rocknroll stardom, he spent his teenage years performing in local New Jersey bands like The Castiles, Steel Mill, Sundance Blues Band and Dr Zoom The Sonic Boom, groups whose names indicate the diverse range of musics with which he developed a familiarity: R rocknroll, heavy metal, blues, soul, and whatever psychedelic delights were indulged by Dr Zoom. By the time he was 23, he had assembled around him the musicians who would form the core of The E Street Band, and had developed the facility at writing verbose, Dylanesque songs that originally attracted the attention of John Hammond, the legendary talent scout who had discovered Billie Holiday, Charlie Christian, Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin and Leonard Cohen.
As with Dylan before him, it initially seemed as if Springsteen would be another Hammonds Folly, as his early albums Greetings from Asbury Park, NJ and The Wild, the Innocent and the E Street Shuffle struggled to find an audience, and the new Dylan millstone seemed like it might become the headstone on his faltering career. By the time he came to make his third album, he knew it was his last throw of the dice, and so pulled out all the stops, his band spending months painstakingly layering the instrumental parts that might help realise his vision of a combination of Dylans wordiness, Roy Orbisons operatic delivery, and Phil Spectors Wall of Sound. Finally, after Clarence Clemons had spent 16 hours piecing together, fragment by fragment, the sax solo on Jungleland, Springsteen declared the album finished, even though by that time he had grown thoroughly sick of the way it ate up everyones life. Born to Run was released on 25 August 1975. Two months later, Bruce Springsteen achieved the unprecedented feat of appearing on the covers of both Time and Newsweek simultaneously.
Born to Run almost instantly became one of rocks landmark works, while the years of playing small clubs now paid off handsomely, as Bruces band became famous as the most thrilling and cathartic live act on the circuit. But the vertiginous turnaround in his fortunes also had a seismic effect on Springsteens life. As he explained in an insightful interview by Phil Sutcliffe in Mojo: Fame. is interesting because it makes you very present and you have a lot of impact, but it also separates you and makes you very singular. Youre now having an experience that not many other people you know are having. Its irony is that it carries its own type of loneliness.
His response to that loneliness was evident on the 1978 followup album Darkness on the Edge of Town. Where Born to Run had been brash and ebullient, an optimistic celebration of rocknrolls liberating spirit and a romanticised indulgence of its street mythology, new songs like the titletrack and Racing in the Street were sombre pieces, haunted by failure, regret and spurned hope, while the protagonists of Factory and The Promised Land were frustrated working men with death in their eyes and violence on their mind. In the three years since he had been catapulted to stardom, Springsteen had developed the social conscience that increasingly came to dominate his work, from sources as diverse as John Fords film of The Grapes of Wrath and the writings of historian Henry Steele Commager, which he claimed was: The first thing I read that made me feel part of a historic continuum, and which cemented his ideas about civic duty and collective responsibility. His 1980 work The River offered a rapprochement of sorts between the popular party anthems of Born to Run and the bluecollar anxieties of Darkness on the Edge of Town, but 1982s stark, solo acoustic offering Nebraska blindsided fans with its bleak, brutal depictions of cops, killers, lifers and losers, desperate men pushed to their limits and beyond. It didnt sell too well.
Born in the USA, however, sold by the shedload. The 1984 release, a return to the bifacial, partynponder approach of The River, remains one of rocks most successful albums, shifting over 15 million copies in America alone. The E Street Band climbed back on the tour bus now more likely to be a private jet and hauled their way around the worlds football stadia for a recordbreaking concert schedule, during which Springsteen met model Julianne Phillips, who would become his first wife in May 1985. Sadly, it would prove a troubled union, the singers unhappiness being reflected in the subsequent Tunnel of Love, an album replete with misgivings, reproach, and the kind of unfulfilled hopes that on previous releases would have been ascribed to downtrodden working men.
Ironically, it was during the subsequent Tunnel of Love Express Tour in 1988 that Springsteens affair with backing singer Patti Scialfa would become public knowledge. He and Phillips divorced in 1990, and Springsteen married Scialfa the following year. With its lowkey arrangements featuring drum machines and synthesiser, Tunnel of Love was unlike anything else he had recorded, and though it remains a critical and fan favourite, the circumstances surrounding it have made him reluctant to perform its songs live.
Happily, his marriage to Scialfa has proven much more durable, producing three children, now aged between 13 and 17. As so often when creative types demons are subdued, however, Springsteens work has since largely lacked the bite and edge that once drove his muse. Subsequent releases such as Human Touch, Lucky Town and the mostly acoustic, overly fingerwagging The Ghost of Tom Joad were pale, anaemic affairs by his standards, and the post9/11 offering The Rising, despite selling well in his homeland, seemed an ineffectual, confused response to the tragedy, short on insight and uncertain in its reaction to events. Once acutely aware of the tarnish on the great chrome bumper of the American Dream, in common with many of his countrymen he now seemed to exhibit a degree of difficulty in visualising his own country as it appeared from outside its borders.
Thankfully, Springsteens political gyroscope has since relevelled, and he played an important part in the Vote For Change campaign encouraging the young, poor and minorities to register to vote, and his song No Surrender was adopted as John Kerrys campaign anthem during his unsuccessful run for president. And in 2006, Springsteen became absorbed in the project honouring the activist folksinger Pete Seeger, for so long Americas conscience, recording a selection of politicised traditional songs associated with Seeger in rumbustious hootenanny manner. It seemed to some like an acknowledgement of his true heritage, an acceptance that ultimately, he would have to assume Seegers mantle as Peoples Tribune, and that when that time came, he would do so willingly.
With Magic, hes getting his troops back in line behind him. Its Springsteens most complex, textured work in years, as rich as any in his catalogue, with songs that both challenge, inform and entertain. On Magic this happens time and time again, as he proves himself a master of the empathy required to bring his characters to life in all their contradictory, multiple selves.

Dont Miss:Bay Area phone booth photoDiners birthday requestsFake Twitter fools passengersCaptain CoolJetBlues new sleeper seatSeason of the WitchEnchantment, Terror, and Deliverance in the City of LoveBy Free Press; 452 pages; $28Perhaps its true of any generation, but those of us who came of age in the 1960s and 1970s tend to romanticize the past. We remember the good times the good sex, the good drugs and the good rock n roll. David Talbot, the San Francisco journalist and founder of Salon, has issued a gritty corrective to our rosy memories in Season of the Witch: Enchantment, Terror, and Deliverance in the City of Love.
Talbots enthralling, newsdriven history of those two tumultuous decades starkly reminds us of the nightmare of violence and divisiveness that followed the dreamy days of peace and love. The Summer of Love devolved into the Zodiac killer. The civil rights movement gave birth to the terrifying blackonwhite murder spree of the Zebra death cult. The antiwar movement spawned such deadly fantasies as the , the kidnappers of newspaper heiress , and the New World Liberation Front, which bombed the homes of San Francisco politicians whose only sin was the voting record of a moderate Democrat.
The decade of the 1970s reached its horrifying crescendo during 10 unforgettable days in November 1978. Thats when the citys scandalously compromised politicians and newspaper editors were shocked by a monster of their own creation: the Rev. , the paranoid pastor of Peoples Temple.
Talbot recounts the shameful story of how Jones was aided and abetted by Mayor , Supervisor , Assemblyman , Chronicle City Editor Steve Gavin and others in San Franciscos politicalmedia establishment. Not all were fooled. , a San Mateo Democrat, believed the horror stories of Peoples Temple defectors. Their investigations led to Jones moving more than 900 men, women and children to a remote region of South America, where they played out a macabre ritual of murder and suicide.
Ryan, along with a young and talented Examiner photographer named , were among those murdered in the Guyanese jungle. Then, a little over a week later, a conservative former cop, firefighter and politician, , stormed into City Hall and gunned down , leader of the citys rising gay rights movement.
By the end of the 1970s, the city had become so divided along the lines of political persuasion, ethnic heritage and sexual orientation that more than a few members of the openly cheered the MosconeMilk murders. Politicians like Moscone and Milk threatened the old political establishment in San Francisco. They embraced the city as a haven for dreamers and outcasts and wandering souls.
Both men gave their lives for this oasis of freedom, Talbot writes, the city where no stranger was kept outside its golden gate.
Season of the Witch is made up of three parts: Enchantment, Terror and Deliverance. Part One is the most fun, with its chapters on how Chronicle Executive Editor Scott Newhall turned a oncedrab newspaper into The Daily Circus of the 1950s and 1960s; on The Free City of the protohippie movement the Diggers; and Talbots account of early drag queens and the outrageous, LSDfueled genderbending chorus line that was the Cockettes.
Part Two, titled Terror, is the strongest section of the book, and the hardest to read. Talbot, the Los Angelesborn son of actor Lyle Talbot, drags us through the corruption, hatred, violence and despair of the 1970s.
Part Three is the only real disappointment in this otherwise smart and briskly paced tale. Talbot finds his Deliverance in the steady hand of Mayor and the rebirth of the San Francisco 49ers. Perhaps, but Im afraid it takes more than a moderate Democrat and a few Super Bowl titles to deliver us from the dark side of the 1970s. Much of that work was heroic, but one could just as easily write a less redemptive analysis of how anonymous sex and heroin addiction came back to haunt the drug culture and the sexual liberation movements of the 1960s and 1970s. I would have preferred a more thoughtful analysis of how the broader values of the counterculture of the 60s and 70 have inspired more ecological awareness, spiritual exploration, gender equality, healthy lifestyles and, despite what you read in the newspaper, rising religious tolerance.
As a young reporter who covered those times for the Examiner and The Chronicle, I found it hard to put down Season of the Witch but sometimes wished I could. Reading it, I realized how close Ive come to repressing some of the more painful memories of the 1970s. But as Jim Jones, quoting philosopher , reminds us in a sign hung over his Jonestown death throne, Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
