QOTD (2011-05-03); or, Happy Birthday, Pete!

In honor of Pete Seeger’s 92nd (!) birthday, here are some beautiful songs which I prefer to chanting “USA! USA!” as if the US armed forces have just won the World Cup instead of assassinating a bad guy.

I watched this live on TV in my dorm room on January 19, 2009 with tears streaming down my face. I’ll never forget it. I prefer this kind of flag-waving to what we saw the night bin Laden was killed:

Whatever the agnostic humanist’s expression is for “God bless Pete,” well, that.
