Another look at Dylan's "Murder Most Foul" — does it hold LBJ responsible for the Kennedy assassination?

There are some lines in the song that had me thinking that. In the first verse, the men who come to kill Kennedy say "We've already got someone here to take your place." There's the proximity of Johnson's name to the song title accusation: "Johnson sworn in at 2:38/Let me know when you decide to throw in the towel/It is what it is, and it's murder most foul." In "Hamlet," "murder most foul" is the murder of the king by his close relation, his brother, and, though Kennedy famously had brothers, t...

I listened to Dylan's new song twice now — that's 34 minutes of listening — and I'm almost ready to talk about the lyrics.

They sure do, and "they blew off his head while he was still in the car." So, an u...

“There’s No Success Like Failure”

To a significant extent in legal and professional publishing, as in other areas of publishing and indeed business and real life, commercial and financial failure plays a critical part in charting its paths. Probably, it is its failed projects and ventures which determine its future rather than its overall historical success, where such has been achieved over time. Here, maybe more than in some other fields, just like the inevitable conclusion of all political careers, the expectation of failure ...
