GUEST,Pedro Bob Dylan for Victoria's Secret (324* d) RE: Bob Dylan for Victoria's Secret 09 Apr 04

Ok Dianavan I'll answer that question because it's addressed to me (but than I really do have to go - I have a long trip starting next a.m.)…

No, I do not like it when stupid pricks - men or women leer at me. I walked point in Vietnam in 1969-1970 and I've been leered at by guys with AK-47's, RPG's, you name it. The average life expectancy of a pointman was approximately 3 weeks and I did for 7 months, then I 'retired' to carrying a radio for the rest of my tour. When I got back I remember a blonde airline attendant at SFO leering at me with a kind of hate that was breath taking to behold. Then in the insuring years, I kind of dropped out of society and I experienced every kind of hateful dumb fucker look you can imagine...

I got to the point of near suicide and the only thing that made any sense to me was Dylan's Idiot Wind. He saved my life with that one piece.

And that's why I don't like it when people see this as some kind of glorious opportunity to judge Dylan... and thereby bolster their own pulverized egos...
