Subject: RE: Obit: Pete Seeger (1919-2014)
to put this in perspective, have a look at some of the movies made between 1942 and 1945, when the U.S.S.R. was our ally. My father, a veteran of that conflict, would, once in a while, speak well of "Old Joe" Stalin. Dad was a staunch Republican. I think he may have voted for Nixon more than once. (But he liked Pete Seeger's music.) Things are rarely black and white. They are usually more complicated.
And I would give a lot to be at one of those July Fourth Concerts again.
