When I caught a broadcast on a celebration at the White House last night - and spied Bob Dylan accepting his "Metal of Freedom" with dark sunglasses affixed firmly to his snoz - my knee-jerk reaction was swift.
"How rude and insulting!"
Mr. Manners agreed.
When the President bestows an individual with such a great honor (I don't care who the person is or what their social or political status) they should show some respect for the Oval Office.
In my humble opinion, Dylan's behaviour not only amounted to bad manners, but underscored the musician's poor breeding and lack of good taste.
