I cannot believe the controversy Bob Dylan is getting? I see "what about Leonard Cohen or Joni Mitchell?"

Well, I believe Bob Dylan has been a prolific poet and can understand his receiving the award. And am so happy for him.

I know you must be ecstatic! You've been a fan since Blowing In The Wind from your post of the concerts you've been to.

Congratulations to Bob Dylan!
