Forget all those pollution jokes, New Jersey was the place to be this morning. Some 10,000 fans including Gov. James E. McGreevey flooded the boardwalk in Asbury Park to catch hometown heroes Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band perform a special concert, broadcast live on the Today show. The rare appearance coincided with today's release of The Rising, Springsteen's first album with E Street since 1984.
