For cautious cadres, the times they are a-changin'

Throughout history, artists have been inspired by the big social and political issues of their era and have articulated the mood of the people in their work. Musicians in particular, with their popular appeal, have often provided emotive soundtracks to the spirit of the times. Bob Dylan, who captured the civil-rights and anti-war sentiment of the 1960s, is arguably the most famous of these.

There are just two ways to look at today's HK$14 million Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Vase (2,400m).

Either Dylan Thomas (Johnny Murtagh) turns up in form and wins, or you throw the cards in the air and see what comes down.

Poor taste

I certainly don't begrudge your sub-editors the opportunity to humour us with amusing headlines, clever references or puns.

However, I do think you went a little too far on May 30. Your report about Bob Dylan's heart problems, headlined, 'Dylan knocking on heaven's door', was in questionable taste.

Nelsson driven to noble deed

THERE comes a point in every man's life when he is called upon to perform a noble deed. Certain eastern religions define it as ''doing merit'' - with rewards totted up and collected at some future date in, hopefully, heaven.
