The truth is, in my mind I confuse Bob Dylan with that espionage agent, Roald Dahl. But Roald Dahl is so much older, having been a fighter pilot in WWII, the Big One.
But, Blogger Ann Althouse did comment on MoDo's column. In a post with a title quoting a line in another blog,
"I can hardly wait for The Althouse Woman to tear Maureen Dowd a new one today on MD's put down of Bob Dylan performing in China."Professor Althouse gives me a whole new appreciation for Singer Dylan.
I love reading MoDo's work, but sometimes she does follow a false path, like Acting Pilot Officer Dahl when he crashed in the Libyan Desert
An RAF inquiry into the crash revealed that the location to which he had been told to fly was completely wrong, and he had mistakenly been sent instead to the no man's land between the Allied and Italian forces.And, from Professor Althouse we learn that often history is mis-remembered.
