Thread Name: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Well if you must resort to such desperate slights, who am I to stop you. You are clearly working on the assumption that I'm having a pop at Bob's oeuvre not having experienced any of it. A dangerous assumption, conceivably born of bitterness and insecurity because your hero's work is being questioned and you're not confident that there's no substance in the criticism. A bit like an atheist confronting a God-squadder, eh? That's what having heroes does for you. My hero is Beethoven. Shoot.
