OK, as long time members know, I'm contractually obligated by my late, great mom to work her hometown of Hibbing, MN into as many conversations as possible.  And the Nobel Committee just made it easy.

Hibbing native Bob Dylan (Bobby Zimmerman or Bobby "Die-lan" in Hibbing) won the Nobel Prize for Literature for his body of work.  Go Bobby, go Hibbing!

    Wonder if anyone has asked him, "How does it feel?"

    I'm blown away!

    I'd post a link to one of his iconic songs but I can't get YouTube links (no matter what I do to them) to work here but we all know what they are.  Amazing choice. Considering the state of the world, it's great to remember there are good things.

    Now they asked me to read a poem
    At the sorority sisters' home
    I got knocked down and my head was swimmin'
    I wound up with the Dean of Women
    Yippee! I'm a poet, and I know it
    Hope I don't blow it

    (I Shall Be Free No. 10)

    Just a few of the books I have translated (English <-> German)

    I know we had this convo in the WC, JRT, but if you post them just as links, not using the Youtube tag, do the links take you to YouTube?  I can't remember....  straight links would be welcome...

    Here's a pic of Dylan's former home in Hibbing, MN.  I was in it once, years ago, when my cousin rented it from the then-owners.
