Thursday July 14 (Bastille Day and Woody Guthrie's Birthday)

Bastille Day and Woody Guthrie's birthday today. 

We take the occasion to re-post/shine some more light on this article, that appeared, earlier this year (January 2016), by American Studies Professor and Woody Guthrie scholar, Will Kaufman, in The Conversation (subsequently picked-up by Raw Story).  

Here's Woody from a vintage radio broadcast singing "All You Fascists Bound To Lose"

see also our earlier Allen Ginsberg Project Woody Guthrie post (from 2012) on the occasion of the Centennial.
