My biggest problem is his lifting of lines from other artists, without any kind of credit. I believe words and music should be shared and reused openly, but Dylan on album after album has done this with no form of acknowledgment.
I understand that opinion. Disturbingly, I wrote my entire senior thesis about the subject, although it makes a different argument (that Dylan's assemblage songwriting is a self-conscious artform).

Well, damn ... honestly I am shocked to learn it was 14 songs. Thats the same report I looked at, but I just glossed it over. Anyway, I swear he didn't bust the harmonica out. Regardless, I acknowledged in a private message already that this was irrational of me, and I have recinded my hatred and gone back to loving the man. I guess I should thank you.
I am also back to further refute Mr. Heel II's defense of Denny's:
BALTIMORE -- The federal government sued Denny's restaurants Thursday, alleging that a manager who had a leg amputated was wrongly fired because her superiors believed she posed a safety risk.
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed the class-action lawsuit accusing Denny's of discriminating against Paula Hart and other unnamed employees.
Hart, a manager at the Denny's in the Baltimore suburb of Fullerton, had a leg amputated in December 2002. She returned to work in April 2003, using a walker while recuperating from surgery and awaiting a prosthetic leg, the commission said.
Yeah, it's only a manager at one store. But obviously their little sensativity training wasn't too effective.
...I talked an old lady into giving me her credit card number so I could sign her up for an AOL account knowing she didn't even have a modem hooked up to her computer that was running Windows 3.1 and it made me sick, but I did it because I had a supervisor listening in and the asshole told me I did a great job. I quit a few days later and I'll do ANYTHING to get people to either stop using the service, or tell them how to get it for free without ever paying for it.
---"We Appreciate You!"
"uh, no you don't. You appreciate my money!" ...I fucking hate stores that make employees say this when I leave after purchasing something. I try not to go back to those places.
Lastly, and this might sound crazy, but while I may accept WALMART paychecks, I refuse to spend any of it at work. I'll leave and buy shit elsewhere.
I spent nearly $400 dollars there on night. The next day, I realized one of the cans of spray paint I bought was the wrong color. I go try to swap it out, but I can't find my receipt. I didn't think it was going to be a big deal, asI was only looking to change the color. Nope. They needed to see my ID, so I show it to the clerk. She says they can't accept it because it was expired(a month or so out of date). I ask her why that very same ID was valid enough when I wrote a check for a pretty decent amount of money.
They wouldn't give. So I walked out and bought the same can of paint at Lowe's across the street. Haven't been to a Home Depot since. Going on 5 years now.
I once ate dinner at an award banquet that, rumor has it, cost the foundation behind the award upwards of $400 per head. It was at some French restaurant in Chicago that I don't recall the name of right now.
