@TomBevanRCP Tom, Dems have the lion's share of high tech and Hollywood talent. Working together, those groups could make it happen--and perhaps make the virtual event more entertaining than the regular convention format, which has gotten stale.

The song, "Murder Most Foul", is almost 17 minutes long, Dylan's lengthiest ever. From "Ask not what your country can do for you..." to the last thing JFK ever heard (Nellie Connally saying, "You can't say Dallas doesn't love you, Mr. President"), it's in there.

Like Bob Dylan did, you'd have to have been alive and experienced the Nightmare on Elm Street in Dallas 11/22/63 to fully appreciate the song. It's almost a history of JFK's murder that day, and what it meant for the America of then and now.
