Just Like Tony Kennedy's Blues

On Tuesday, the buzz from the Supreme Court was Chief Justice John Roberts’ quotation of Bob Dylan in a dissenting opinion (page 36). On Wednesday, that amusing fact was instantly overshadowed by Justice Kennedy’s latest usurpation of legislative authority. I propose that Kennedy follow the Chief Justice’s example instead of his usual trope of sweeping assertions of judicial supremacy. I have just the Dylan quotation for him:

I started out on burgundy
But soon hit the harder stuff
Everybody said they'd stand behind me
When the game got rough
But the joke was on me
There was nobody even there to bluff
I'm going back to New York City
I do believe I've had enough

— “Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues,” Highway 61 Revisited, 1965.

"Someone showed me a picture and I just laughed.
Dignity never been photographed."
--Bob Dylan, "Dignity," 1991.

The link took me to a document which only had 19 pages; the Dylan quote was supposed to be on p 36.
