Quote of the Day

Dan Kennedy, on that bizarre interview of Bob Dylan by Ed Bradley last night:

“You really need to see it. Dylan appears to be struggling mightily with his legendary shyness; he also seems to want to come off as reasonably normal, which is a struggle for him. Good stuff - a far better addition to 60 Minutes than the pending arrival of Dan Rather, that's for sure. I'd bounce Rather from the anchor chair at the CBS Evening News right now, and let Zimmy fill in until a replacement is ready.”
I just can’t believe someone so strangely inarticulate is also one of the greatest songwriters who ever lived. But then again, I never understood the Beethoven-composing-while-deaf thing either.
