Wannemacher writes, "I am sure I have known people who have hung out in Fargo longer than Dylan and never got the accolade."

It’s getting embarrassing, guys. I don’t really think there is a qualification that would make Bob Dylan a resident of Fargo. I am sure I have known people who have hung out in Fargo longer than Dylan and never got the accolade .

This is looking more like cheesy namedropping than actual story. Perhaps one of your intrepid reporters could dive deeply into this and come up with Dylan’s Fargo history. Barring that, enough already.
