I didn't know he was 90? What's his secret, or
does he have good genes?

The "young" seniors at the Redwood wanted to get an up close look before putting down their cash in the Dead Pool.....marking the dates and laying their bets.....before the pool closes.
Good luck you old geezers!
I really don't know why we denigrate the old? Some
of that wisdom is extremely valuable. Plus, these
people are somebody's parents. I guess the average
dude doesn't realize how time flies?

How very strange, this string of commentary here. History is indeed repeating itself when " ****!" and "Socialist!" and "Hitler!" are hurled without thought or knowledge. How have we come to this state of national ignorance, an ignorance that is worn like a badge of honor, pride, patriotism. Lord deliver us from such "patriotism" and blind "faith." Pete Seeger has railed against ignorance his whole life and will continue after he is gone, as long as intelligent and thinking people persevere.

Or better yet, he can join all those whacky teabaggers, they need a good singer... I just glad he can still get your panties all in a bunch! LMFAO
as a hard core admitted communist i wonder how long pete (and i do like his music) would have lasted in the ussr, red china, north korea, vietnam or cuba. pete could never connect the dots
only because of the willingness of others to fight for his freedom, does he in fact enjoy it..

Jeez,why don't you just finish your applesauce, take off your nikes, disconnect the life support, pull the purple shroud over your head, and wait for the spaceship to take you home.

Folk music is bad enough, your response is worse than folk music.

As a Geezer in Residence at The Redwoods, I would like to share a bit of the "behind the scenes" story of Pete Seeger's appearance here.
We lined like "Geriatric Groupies", two hours before the performance. Some sat perched on their walkers; a few elderly ladies sat on the floor; one of them asked me if I would help to pick her up, if she couldn't get up on her own, when Pete arrived.
Tis was more than a show for us. Pete Seeger exemplifies our time, our hopes, our pain, our dreams.
When he arrived, we cheered him! He acknowledged it with a shy smile.
Thank God, we have lived to see this man achieve the recognition and respect of the nation, after his many years of political, economic, and social isolation.
Many of us hope that we will see him awarded the Nobel Prize for his lifelong battle for social justice
and, more recently, the environment.
