He was far from perfect, but I agree.

I'd swap his death for Thatcher's any time.

My great granduncle didn't die in WW2 so I would have to wait a few extra seconds for my room to light up.

And welcome to the freedom to actually be able to afford health insurance and not go bankrupt because you have cancer!

I think I'm detecting sarcasm here?

Pete Seeger was a legend.

Down through the centuries, this trick has been tried by various establishments throughout the world. They force people to get involved in the kind of examination that has only one aim and that is to stamp out dissent.

Saw this exchange from when he was questioned for communist leanings pretty telling of the man's character. A true legend, and patriot in the truest sense of the word:

Quote:
Mr. SEEGER: I am not going to answer any questions as to my association, my philosophical or religious beliefs or my political beliefs, or how I voted in any election, or any of these private affairs. I think these are very improper questions for any American to be asked, especially under such compulsion as this. I would be very glad to tell you my life if you want to hear of it.
[...]
I feel that in my whole life I have never done anything of any conspiratorial nature and I resent very much and very deeply the implication of being called before this Committee that in some way because my opinions may be different from yours, or yours, Mr. Willis, or yours, Mr. Scherer, that I am any less of an American than anybody else. I love my country very deeply, sir.

Chairman WALTER: Why don’t you make a little contribution toward preserving its institutions?

Mr. SEEGER: I feel that my whole life is a contribution. That is why I would like to tell you about it.

Chairman WALTER: I don’t want to hear about it.

His portrayal of Truman Capote in the 2005 film was brilliant. Sad news.
