Remembering Woodstock 1969

There's an amazing amount of commentary out this weekend rehashing the significance or non-significance of Woodstock. I wasn't there, so what do I know--but the very fact that everyone's talking about it seems to indicate, to me, just how significant it was. Even if the actual experience was filthy, crowded, and miserable, the event has grown into mythic status as a symbol of an idea. Peace, love, and rock & roll: how you can you argue with that?
