Thread Name: Pete Seeger: Nobel Peace -Updated-deadline Feb1!
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger: Nomination for Nobel Peace
My understanding -- and it's easy enough to research -- was that he did come to realize, in hindsight, his praise of Stalinist Russia as a mistake. And he apologized for it.
What's always driven me a little crazy is that "communist" is still seen by some as an unfair, inaccurate description of the man, even though he has been quite open to admit it.
