A timeless word from Woody

As Toronto braces itself for the G20 Summit, a lovely interview with Pete Seeger and Arlo Guthrie on CBC’s The Current

I never stopped to think of it before, but you know — a policeman will jest stand there an let a banker rob a farmer, or a finance man rob a workin man. But if a farmer robs a banker — you wood have a hole dern army of cops out a shooting at him. Robbery is a chapter in etiquette.

—Woody Guthrie
From “Woody Sez” in
