With all the hubbub about Bruce Springsteen's latest CD (a worthy purchase I might add) I thought I'd also send a kind note thanking Pete Seeger. Being a child of the '60's I saw Pete Seeger more times than I can count at every protest rally, do-gooder function, event celebrating freedom of speech, protesting war, injustice, violence, pollution, environmental issues, human decency, and down right good neighborliness. Always wearing a well-worn paisley cotton shirt, rolled up sleeves, cordoroy cap, and lived in jeans. If we have a troubador in this lifetime, Pete's it. His heart and soul is in his music. It's also in the right place. Listening to Pete Seeger can't help us to be better human beings. This is as good a place to start. He's as close to Woodie Guthrie as we're going to get in this century. Cherish him.
