ZIG WAS RIGHT, OF COURSE

The great editor and mentor Lou Ziegler used to tell us that Bob Dylan was the greatest American poet of his lifetime. Being much younger and wiser, we thought Zig was goofy.

In the three years and three months since his death, Ziegler's words about Dylan have rolled around in our head. He knew we would grow up and listen.

Tuesday, Dylan was awarded a special Pulitzer Prize for his "lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power."

If you're not yet into Dylan, read his poetry.

Life is sad
Life is a bust
All ya can do is do what you must ...

This post made me smile. Dad was smiling down when Bob Dylan won that special award. I just know he was.
