>>Arlo Guthrie refers to the Group W bench in his classic "Alice's
rendition. Does anybody know if he based it on the Westinghouse Group W
and if not where it came from. (It obviously has nothing to do with
of the "masacree." I have always wanted to know what the answer to that
question was and have never found an answer.<<
It has nothing to do with Westinghouse's broadcast division. "Group W"
was the draft board designation for those drafted who might not be
morally fit to serve...in his specific instance, those who had been
convicted of a crime.
