I take exception to your printing of only negative letters regarding Robert Hilburn's article from Paris about Bruce Springsteen's popularity in France (Calender Letters, July 14).

The decision to publish five negative letters gives the false impression of an anti-Springsteen backlash! Everyone I know from 15 to 55 is a Springsteen fan!

What's not to like? The man's a musical genius. He doesn't smoke, drink, do drugs, pose nude or break up hotel rooms. He donates generously to charities, flaunts his patriotism; he's sporting a clean-cut, clean shaven, healthy, well-built appearance--why, he even married his girlfriend!

If some readers have an ax to grind with Hilburn, why make it appear that they're attacking Springsteen?
