What did I hear this afternoon wafting from a window of a classroom in Mason Hall but Bob Dylan’s “It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue,” not as the soundtrack to an anti-war protest in the Diag as it probably was on this campus almost 40 years ago, but as the soundtrack to what was probably an undergraduate American history course taught by some SDS refugee from the 1960s?

From vanguard of the revolution to ….. boring whiny song we have to pretend to listen to in history class. Somehow simultaneously depressing and appropriate.
