January 27, 1999 12:00 AM ET

On Monday, January 25th, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony's Bizzy Bone was found not to be guilty of assault and disorderly conduct in Columbus, Ohio. Bizzy, who had allegedly dragged a barber school student down a flight of stairs for spreading rumors about him, was found innocent after four days of testimony. The defense maintained that Bizzy's bodyguards, who were not charged, were responsible for most of the injuries inflicted upon the complainant, Terrance Harden, and that Bizzy was only minorly involved in his physical abuse. Harden's lawyer, Robert Caplan, says they still intend on filing a civil suit against the rapper and his bodyguards.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
