Thread Name: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Dick, I'll respond just once more - with the repeated statement that Dylan doesn't impinge on my consciousness very much. Neither does the Nobel Prize, which I think is an irrelevance - just my personal view.

I don't know what you mean by a "politician's response". What interests me is that it's very easy to criticise someone's work and then, when admirers of that work challenge the criticism - keep repeating that they're the ones who are asked to justify the work. An opposite view would be: if you stand up and criticise someone's work - give your reasons, rather than demand from others that the work be justified.

I think that's a fair point.
