This Land Is Your Land at the Concert for Obama
I just had to post this, one of the most meaningful moments of the big concert for Barack Obama held at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC on Sunday.
Bruce Springsteen backing the folk music legend Pete Seeger, leading hundreds of thousands of people in Woody Guthrie's anthem, This Land Is Your Land.
Seeger is 89 years old. He looks spry and delighted -- and, as a friend of mine put it, as if he had been waiting all his life for this moment.
