Thread Name: Seeger unannounced appearance!
Subject: RE: Seeger unannounced appearance!
For better or for worse, Pete has also become part of the American folk mythology. Columbus discovered America. Washington couldn't tell a lie. Lincoln freed the slaves. Pete Seeger cleaned up the Hudson River.
Case in point: An episode of Land and Order begins with a man fishing in what appears to be Riverside Park in New York. Another man approaches him and asks, "Can you really eat the fish?" Whereupon the first man replies, "Sure, thanks to Pete Seeger." No further explanation is necessary.
