"Some may find them merely diverting melodies..."
"...Others may find them incitements to Red revolution. And who will say if either or both is wrong? Not I."

Pete Seeger turns 90 tomorrow, and McCarthy has been in his grave for 52 years.

Who does God love more? :D

2. When he performed at the Lincoln Memorial
a couple of days before the Inauguration, it was so cold, and Pete was the only performer who wasn't all bundled up. He wore a watch cap, of course, and probably had some thermals under his flannel shirt and jeans, but, man, did he stand out!

Behind me, a young woman said to her friend, when Pete Seeger was introduced and came on, started signing, "I didn't realize Bob Seger was so OLD!"

Ah, youth ..................

4. Happy birthday Pete, your songs have led us down the path we
would not have traveled if not for your encouragement. Thank you.
