Time for Thorns

An independent view on life.

Huh?

I thought this was  a parody piece at first, but apparently Bob Dylan has won a Nobel prize in literature for  “having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition.”   It never occurred to me that he was a poet of any note.   I realize that his nasal singing and droning was part of his shtick,  but this floors me.   Why do I suspect the Nobel committee  selected him  because of his anti-war,  ant-American efforts?

UPDATE:  Once again,  Theodore Dalrymple  has put  my view of something into well-chosen words.
