The writers of this blog are not music critics, and they don't consider a second (or third, fourth or fifth) mortgage to be a perfectly reasonable course of action to pay for front-row tickets, but despite being a whole lot more middle aged than they were when they first put \x34Born in the U.S.A.\x34 or \x34The River\x34 down on the turntable, still feels like Bruce has something -- OK, a lot of things -- to say about our country and the way we live our lives, things that not a lot of other artists are saying. And whether he's talking about the knife that can cut this pain from your heart, the house that's waiting for you to walk in or what that flag flying over the courthouse means, he's nailing down feelings that are so universal that they can raise your spirits and break your heart at the same time. Plus, letąs face it, the man rocks.

So here goes the question.  And to add a little context, I’m working on a piece on the winged helmet tradition, which turns 75 this season.  In the opening paragraph I started to write something about its place amongst the most defining characteristics of the Michigan program…and stumbled. 

The question:

P.S. I didn’t put “Tradition” in here because I don’t think you can’t really define what Michigan tradition means without mentioning one (or all) of the above.
