How DUMBO got its name and what "The Weight" is really all about

Did you know DUMBO was named DUMBO intentionally to DETER the assholes from moving in and developing in their little bohemian hood? A very interesting tale.

"I pulled into Nazareth was feelin’ about half past dead..."
I've come across a bunch of these sites where they'll autopsy Dylan's lyrics and argue over what he meant or what he said and well this nut decided to dissect every lyric to "The Weight". In the process, he came across some brilliant discoveries, suggestions and hidden meanings; its all hearsay of course but if you love the song, or The Band, you'll love this article.
