Oh C'mon! Give Her A Break!

There's a story making the rounds today about how a cop in Long Branch, NJ found some bedraggled bag man wandering aimlessly around a local neighborhood on July 23rd. The man didn't have any ID on him, but claimed to be Bob Dylan, just killing time before a concert that evening.

She had her doubts.

"We see a lot of people on our beat, and I wasn't sure if he came from one of our hospitals or something," Buble said.

Even though a second officer joined Buble, he also did not recognize the singer, who was not carrying ID.

Hey! Cut her some slack! I remember going to a Dylan concert at the University of Florida in the mid-70's, during one of his incomprehensible periods. I would have gone up on stage and asked for ID if I'd had the balls.
