Well, it was fun to discuss Dylan's Nobel Prize yesterday—robert e hit the nail on the head when he said "It's a pretty dark time right now, and the award was oddly cheering. It reminds me that there were other dark times, and we got through them." I still think it's barmy to give an old rock star a literature prize, but it's a pleasant change to be able to dispute something that doesn't make people angry and upset. It's a bad time in America right now.
This might help too. I don't know if you're aware of this, but our neighbors in Canada have started a small movement to help us buck up. The headline I saw read "Canadians aghast at the bitter American presidential campaign have begun a campaign, 'Tell America It's Great,' as a way to give their neighbors a pep talk."
Check out one of the videos.
They're just being neighborly—they're nice people up there.
And you know what? It worked. It made me feel better.
Speaking as an American, thanks, Canada—we needed that.
And we think you're pretty great, too.
