Bob Dylan: "If You Ever Go To Houston"

Here's an interesting thread discussing some of the references in the song "If You Ever Go To Houston" on Dylan's new album.

The original article is lame, typical internet snark-masquerading-as-opinion-masquerading-as-
something-interesting-to-say, but then a commenter who actually knows what he's talking about shows up, and provides some actual, you know, information. It's entertaining watching the original poster lose control. It's the opposite of a lot of internet postings, where something substantive get hijacked by snarky comments: here the snarky post gets hijacked by substantive comments, and the poster panics. Heh.

Anyway, the comments explain an obscure reference in the song (Bagby and Lamar).
