Thread Name: Pete Seeger's last concert
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger's last concert
[Thread creep alert]
Peter, it's Doris Granny D Haddock, and she's running for U.S. Senate. Her web page is here. Go read it, I think you'll find her fascinating. She just recently legally changed her name to have 'Granny D' added, because that's how people know her.

I'd heard about her and didn't take her very seriously. BIG mistake. I met her early last month and heard her speak. She's a Force With Which to be Reckoned in a teeny little 94 year-old body surmounted by a funny hat. (I had the honor of being gently poked in the eye with that feather while posing for a photo.) Read her speeches - some of the best I've ever read.
