So Monique is going crazy waiting for him to either live or die, and she is going crazy waiting for him to decide to choose her if he survives. She is tired and overtaxed, too. "I have to let him go," she says. "I'm trying really, really hard to do that."

I wasn't sure what to say. It's just one of those things a person has to go through. But I do know this — if you can master letting go, you can master just about anything.

On the jukebox, Bruce was letting go of some fantasy pinup girl and settling into something real himself: "You ain't a beauty but, hey, you're all right ... " That's what is so great about Bruce Springsteen, other than the fact that he made saxophone solos bearable. All of his songs are about compromises.

After all, life is a series of compromises, a series of little let-gos. Well, at least 70 percent of the time.

THE BITTER END. 441 Clement. 221-9538.
