Seeger at 93

It’s Pete Seeger’s 93rd birthday today and I try not to let the occasion pass on NewsCut each year. No sense repeating myself, I suppose.

“It’s not enough to say ‘you have rights,’” former Dixie Chicks lead singer Natalie Maines once said of Seeger. “You have to use them.”

Nothing scares people in power like a person who can carry a tune.
