Thread Name: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
You're welcome, and I wonder if they put it back now that he has, imo, graciously, acknowledged the surprising but not, imo, undeserved honor.
The discussion going on amongst my kith&kin is whether lyrics are literature, not whether he deserved the prize. The only other category is promoting peace, and ending the last war on a continent trumps lyrics.
Speaking of which (get it?), I think part of this award is intended as a reminder to America of what we used to be about, and should go back to being about, again, imho. What do y'all think of that idea?
