Pete Seeger Turns 90

I just watched a Pete Seeger Birthday Tribute PBS fund raiser. Pete Seeger has been on the right side of every battle. He is a courageous man. I agree with virtually every political position he ever taken.

Earlier I expressed this off line to a couple of valued old friends: Pete Seeger and his smugness is a pain in the ass and his music is simply dreadful. Folk music has to be competing with Disco as the nadir of American music It was like watching a A Mighty Wind II. That said, I love all he stands for.
