When Woody Guthrie died in 1967, he left behind an enormous cache of unpublished lyrics and prose, which has resulted in an exceptionally rich posthumous career. Bob Dylan, who should know, has written of Guthrie: "He was so poetic and tough and rhythmic. There was so much intensity, and his voice was like a stiletto." Though I probably shouldn't admit it, I rarely listen to Woody Guthrie for pleasure.
An investigative report by I-News, a Colorado-based in-depth news consortium, shows that taxpayers will spend $100 million this year on virtual schools that are largely failing their elementary and high school students.
