More advice for Occupy

I am listening to Neil Young & Crazy Horse's new album, Americana, at the moment. He gives classic American songs, like Oh Susannah, the Neil Young treatment. That is, these songs belong to Neil Young in a big way.

However, he sings Woodie Guthrie's "This Land is Your Land" straight. As I sit listening to it, hearing the lyrics again, it occurs to me that this should be the Occupy anthem. It really is perfect, a case where message and movement align.

If Woodie were alive today, you know he'd be at Wall Street with his fascist fighting guitar.
