Bob Dylan was right, “The times they are a changin.” The third verse of his 1964 mega-hit is quite prophetic:
Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don’t stand in the doorway
Don’t block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There’s a battle outside
And it is ragin’.
It’ll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin’.
Now that the votes have been counted and every congressional district in Orange County will be represented by a Democrat, I’m guessing many late, great GOP heavyweights like Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Arnold Beckman, Walter Knott, John Wayne, James Utt, John Schmitz, Bob Badham, Marian Bergeson and Tom Fuentes are rolling over in their graves. If any of them were alive today, they would need oxygen. Sing it, Mr. Tambourine Man.
