According to MSN (music.msn.com), Mary Travers passed away yesterday.
As a kid, I remember my parents playing Peter, Paul, and Mary records an awful lot even though they disagreed with their politics because of the musicianship. As I've gotten older, I find myself in that same position. I doubt I agreed with her on very many issues, but I love her solo work and still listen to Peter, Paul, and Mary for the quality of the music and the wonderful harmonies.
