Baby “Born to Run,” Should’ve Run Faster

bruce_springsteen.jpgWhat happens when your “de facto husband” (whatever that means) stops playing your favorite Springsteen tune? That’s a stabbin’!

A woman stabbed her de facto husband to death after he stopped her playing her favourite Bruce Springsteen CD.
Karen Lee Cooper told arresting police: “I couldn’t even play Bruce Springsteen on my stereo - can you believe that? Can you believe that?”
She later again told police: “I mean, who doesn’t like Bruce Springsteen?”
“I’m 49 years old and I want to play my own music.”

That’s totally fair, Karen. In fact, the judge in the case lowered the charge to manslaughter (instead of murder), and I think we all know why: Springsteen fan in the courthouse (w00t w00t).
