To the Point

There comes a time in every epoch when pragmatism simply evolves into extreme acquiescence and surrender to the forces of apathy and do-nothingness, a guarantor of the status quo in all of its easy, democratic criminality--its fortress of greed. You could line up all the pols in the U.S. in a straight row and examine them head to toe and not find a single man or woman capable of admitting, never mind ending, the corruption of their vocation--Buddy Dooley

Make that one Nobel Prize for Literature to Robert Zimmerman, aka, Mr. Bob Dylan.

Like many children in the West, my grandson is named for him, just as Bob named himself after Dylan Thomas, another fine poet.
