Chuck the Duck alerted me to this story about music in the presidential race. Our friend Ed Pettersen is quoted there.

The story, by Newhouse News Service writer Delia M. Rios begins with a discussion of Woody Guthrie's "This Land Is Your Land," which was played in Boston as the Democratic National Convention.

Funny thing is, a couple of weeks ago at President Bush's appearance, they played a marching band version of "This Land is Your Land" as the president was exiting. I couldn't resist bugging a couple of my Republican friends. "Did you know they're playing a song by a known communist?"

They looked at me like I was crazy.
