Clarence Clemons Might Get His Own Holiday in Jersey

If you can make into the lyrics of a Bruce Springsteen song, then you probably should be able to get your own holiday–well, at least if you made it into “Tenth Avenue Freeze Out.” The late Clarence Clemons, Springsteen’s former saxophonist, might be the first to receive the distinction if Monmouth County Sen. Jennifer Beck, who has proposed January 11 (the Big Man’s birthday) as Clarence Clemons Day in a resolution, can help it. Governor Christie has been to more than 130 of the Boss’ shows, so you might as well start sax shopping now. [Newsworks]
