Bob Dylan, Subterranean Homesick Blues, 1965 + Bill Ayers, 2013 = this.
Exclusive Bill Ayers Portrait Session at MCA, Chicago for Getty Images, by Michael Roman.
April 5 update: Is it really an “exclusive” when you barge into an already ongoing actual exclusive interview without as much as tapping the camera man / reporter (that’d be me) on the shoulder before walking into the frame asking questions? Isn’t that against journalistic standards and practices?
Not according to William Kelly of WashingtonTimes.com
“I crossed paths with Ayers recently,” Kelly writes. “It isn’t that hard to find a sixties radical in Chicago if you are looking for one.”
He granted this EXCLUSIVE impromptu interview:
KELLY: What do you think of Rahm Emanuel’s plan to close the schools?
AYERS: Rahm Emanuel in an absolute right-wing troglodyte. Closing the schools is the worst thing he has done. Of all the terrible dreadful stuff he has done, this is absolutely the worst.”
Check out the EXCLUSIVE “impromptu” report at the 4:15 mark where Bill agrees to answer questions after first saying “Ha. Who are you?”

Not on Red Bull. I’m addicted to the stuff. I hear they’re trying to make it illegal in some states. I totally get it. Booze and cigarettes have never done any harm. Neither have guns.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) had his buttock handed to him on a silver platter by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).
“I am not a sixth grader,” Feinstein told Cruz in a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Thursday. “I am reasonably well-educated, and I thank you for the lecture.”
The sharp-tongued remark was tossed Cruz’s way during an assault-weapons ban debate. Cruz is opposed to a ban, particularly a ban on “firearms that, if this bill were passed, Congress would deem prohibited.”
