Writing her love songs that were actually protest anthems did little to endear Mr. Tambourine Man to her.

Today's definition was inspired by Bob Dylan's new song "My Wife's Home Town", one of may favorites on his new album. Apparently his wife is from Hell, and has one heck of an evil eye. Couldn't help but wonder what she thinks of this song ~ James
