- Rock star and concerned citizen Bruce Springsteen has written a letter to the editor of the Asbury Park Press in response to a March 27 article about how New Jersey tax cuts will harm anti-poverty groups. Springsteen praises the newspaper, writing that the "article shows that the cuts are eating away at the lower edges of the middle class, not just those already classified as in poverty."

-The Historical Society of Washington D.C. will welcome the public to the 27th annual Marvin Gaye Day Celebration on Saturday, and will host a documentary screening, a panel discussion and musical performances. The Historical Socieity is located at 8th and K Streets, N.W. and the program runs from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
