    unique as the capsule summary from tv guide; but that says nothing of how unusual it was to put this in prime-time, when the ‘first’ culture war was raging and they (ok, dylan first; donovan, third) defined the term ‘folk-rock’. which says a lot about the era. (and as much as one may like their appearance on the smothers brothers comedy hour, the skits were as funny as intestinal parasites.) the real surprise here is how likable paul is: often reknowned as a world-class egotist (which is not the noun most detractors would use), he is warm, funny, and smokes pot. which says about as much about that as necessary.

    If he smokes pot, he clearly is a wonderful human being.
