Bob Dylan, America's Greatest Mystic Poet, is 70 Today
The Minnesota Bard is seven decades old today. He is my hero. He is crazy. He owns -- or owned - a big yacht. His mom knew my grandma in the North Country, where I was born.
He was Jewish, Christian, and turned the Beatles on to LSD....Yackity, yackity. You know all the about Dylan.
For the record, these are my favorite Dylan lyrics: "Darkness at the break of noon, shadows even the silver spoon, the handmade blade, the child's balloon, to understand you know to soon, there is no sense in trying."
