A blast from the past

So, I got a comment notification via email today from this post I wrote back in 2007.  It was the standard crap you’ve come to know and love here at LTG, basically I talked about the Bob Dylan song “Long time gone”, explaining that my blog identity actually derived from the Crosby, Stills, and Nash song.  I made a point that it was not based on the Dixie Chicks song of the same name, seeing as how I despised the Chicks.

Robert took offense to my long ago dig, responding thus:

you dis the dixie chicks for excercising their constitutional rights … you should be banned from listening to music … especially rock and roll …… if you ever even hear bob dylan you should hang your head in shame …

Hey, I welcome and appreciate all viewpoints (honestly, I’m always happy when anyone bothers to leave a comment).  And Robert certainly deserved a response, so I provided this one:

Well Robert it is always nice to see a new comment on an eight year old post. Thanks for stopping by!

It’s interesting though that you are offended by my passing dig at the Dixie Bitches. Yes, they have a right to say whatever the fuck they want. And I have an equal right to criticize them for it. And you, the defender of free speech, think I should be banned from listening to music because I took a contrary view? I reckon that makes you a fascist.

Hey, come on back any time though, I don’t discriminate.

Truthfully, I don’t expect to see him back any time soon.
