Coleman Compares Facebook To Woodstock

Former U.S. Sen. Norm Coleman spent his youth as a bit of a rebel, and attended the infamous Woodstock music festival.

Now, as a political think tank leader, he knows how to use social media such as Facebook.

But comparing the two came out of the blue the other day, after many had wished him a happy birthday via Facebook.

Coleman recalled that he celebrated a birthday at Woodstock: “I was walking down a hill, with hundreds of folks passing me walking uphill. My buddy, Billy Ellis, was a few feet away and called out ‘happy birthday’ to me, resulting in an endless line of folks giving me a hug and greeting as they passed by. A birthday on Facebook is very similar!”
