Activist Hopes 'The Boss' Will Play Anti-GOP Concert

NPR's Mike Pesca profiles the efforts of Bruce Springsteen fan and political activist Andrew Rasiej to get "The Boss" on the Kerry bandwagon. Rasiej has reserved Giants Stadium on September 1 in an effort to goad Springsteen into headlining a concert there to protest the Republican National Convention, which will nominate President Bush for another four years in office on the same day, just across the river.
