Thread Name: Pete Seeger: Nobel Peace -Updated-deadline Feb1!
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger: Nomination for Nobel Peace
Enthusiastically seconded.

A giant of our time and a musical statesman who, without going out of his way to do so, has shown with every syllable and every lick of his banjo what stunted criminals, appeasers and wretches his politician contemporaries are.

He's burnt out his life in selfless devotion trying to make the world the place we all hoped it would be. And still hope, despite tyrants who shake their iron rod, as a 200-year-old song puts it.
