The Ballad of Frankie Lee and Judas Priest - out of context

It was a cold day in January 1968 when after my last final exam in my first semester at City College I stopped on the way home to buy the highly anticipated Dylan LP John Wesley Harding. It was the "anti-Sargent Pepper." Anyway, I am taking a line out of context from "The Ballad of Frankie Lee and Judas Priest" which applies to a decision I made today. Since the song is somewhat wordy I will only write the relevant lines:

Well, the moral of the story,
The moral of this song,
Is simply that one should never be
Where one does not belong.

I guess I don't belong in midtown Manhattan on Saturday December 6th

Bruce, it's no big loss.

Honesty is a rare thing in this day and age.

Forget about Dec. 6. Life goes on.
