Entertainment Overnight -- Prophetic

With the announcement earlier today that Bob Dylan won the Nobel Prize for Literature, it seems a good time to put up another of his videos but also, to maybe once again point out how he was and this one song in particular was maybe a bit prophetic.

As one example, the people calling out climate change and man-made global warming, beside the scientists, would, I think, call this out as such:

Come gather 'round people where ever you roam
And admit that the waters around you have grown
And accept it that soon you'll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin' or you'll sink like a stone,
For the times they are a' changin'!

And then there's this. It seems perpetually true of government representatives.

Come senators, congressmen please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt will be he who has stalled
There's a battle outside and it's ragin'
It'll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls
For the times they are a' changin'!

Enough lecture for the evening.  Enjoy.
