Call me a sentimental old Commie hippie peacenik, I couldn't help it -- I got tears in my eyes
I got tears in my eyes this afternoon watching HBO's streaming video of a surprisingly nimble 89-year old Pete Seeger performing "This Land Is Your Land" at the Lincoln Memorial with Bruce Springsteen at the Inaugural Concert. I don't usually watch these things, but I got hooked. No one thing, but the whole thing -- the crowd, the performers and the First Family-elect. It was a moving event, and a clear sign the Bush years are just about over.
