People Still Seething Over Dylan Winning Nobel Prize?

The other day on Minnesota Public Radio* they spent time taking calls on the topic of Bob Dylan and his Nobel Prize. I am only relaying this second hand, but that was the gist of it. A friend of mine said people were calling in to express anger regarding the songwriter being called a major poet.

The photos on this page are from the October 14 Wall Street Journal. The title of the piece shows where the faultline lies in this "fierce debate."
