In which I instruct Bob Dylan on Bob Dylan


During a brief lull in our sparkling conversation, over some highly herbaceous cocktails, I mentioned to Bob Dylan that someone had donated a copy of The Rough Guide to Bob Dylan to our library.

"What's that?" Bob asked with tepid interest.

"Well, Rough Guides are a series of travel books, like Fodors or Frommers, but with the idea of being a bit more downscale and rough and ready."

"Travel books?" Bob asked.

"Yes." I replied. "Apparently you are like unto your own country now."

"Tell me about it." Bob groaned.

So I did.

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
