Woody Guthrie on PBS (he was)

Curious what Max has against Despite Joe Klein, appearing briefly here (that middle link being the closest this blog will ever come to mentioning a certain ridiculously behind the times and over-the-hill mealy-mouthed and pious, fascist-compromising smughole, corporate welfare lacky/crazed militarist/soon-to-be-"independent"in-more-ways-than-he-wishes Senator from New England). Update: yup.

Wasn't Klein the (originally) "Anonymous" author of the Clinton-liberal pillorying Primary Colors? That could be the reason.

Matt said...

Right, of course.

(Doubly moronic of me, as I happen to know the guy who fingered him.)

Matt said...

(...more here - sorry Don)

Matt said...

(Had always thought the Woody biography was OK, is why I asked.)

John said...

The "father of literary forensics" - that's very impressive.

I enjoyed Klein's Guthrie bio quite a bit, also, which makes things like this all the more disconcerting.

Matt said...

One father among many, no doubt.

No thanks for the link; Joe Klein should maybe stick to biographies of the dead.

haven't you done more than enough of that 60s' okie left schtick?

like Steely Dan is touring: SD's a bit closer to authentic leftist-libertarian goals than any folksingers were, and to literary themes as well. Plus some complex interesting rock-jazz muzak, however schmaltzy on occasion............

how about some posts on Don and Walt, hipster

Fair enough, I suppose it's true. I've been too busy lately, paying bills (and living some, in stolen moments in between) to speak at any length of Steely Dan.
