Another funny one is dumb Grand Rapids trying to lay claim to Judy Garland. She left the state as a child, refused to ever come back here.
For sure! They move out of Grand Rapids when she was 2.

Everybody wants to know why he couldnít adjust
Adjust to what, a dream that bust?

He was a clean-cut kid
But they made a killer out of him,
Thatís what they did

They said whatís up is down, they said what isnít is
They put ideas in his head he thought were his

He was a clean-cut kid
But they made a killer out of him,
Thatís what they did

He was on the baseball team, he was in the marching band
When he was ten years old he had a watermelon stand

He was a clean-cut kid
But they made a killer out of him,
Thatís what they did

He went to church on Sunday, he was a Boy Scout
For his friends he would turn his pockets inside out

He was a clean-cut kid
But they made a killer out of him,
Thatís what they did

They said,ďListen boy, youíre just a pupĒ
They sent him to a napalm health spa to shape up

They gave him dope to smoke, drinks and pills,
A jeep to drive, blood to spill

They said ďCongratulations, you got what it takesĒ
They sent him back into the rat race without any brakes

He was a clean-cut kid
But they made a killer out of him,
Thatís what they did

He bought the American dream but it put him in debt
The only game he could play was Russian roulette

He drank Coca-Cola, he was eating Wonder Bread,
Ate Burger Kings, he was well fed

He went to Hollywood to see Peter OíToole
He stole a Rolls-Royce and drove it in a swimming pool

They took a clean-cut kid
And they made a killer out of him,
Thatís what they did

He couldíve sold insurance, owned a restaurant or bar
Couldíve been an accountant or a tennis star

He was wearing boxing gloves, took a dive one day
Off the Golden Gate Bridge into China Bay

His mama walks the floor, his daddy weeps and moans
They gotta sleep together in a home they donít own

They took a clean-cut kid
And they made a killer out of him,
Thatís what they did

Well, everybodyís asking why he couldnít adjust
All he ever wanted was somebody to trust

They took his head and turned it inside out
He never did know what it was all about

He had a steady job, he joined the choir
He never did plan to walk the high wire

They took a clean-cut kid
And they made a killer out of him,
Thatís what they did
Ya right

"Funny how many of you stupid 612'ers time after time make fun of the Range, and people in Northern Minnesota in general but where is the first place you cityits run when you get some time off? Stay home." Well I am sure it is not the range they are running to.

So far, all of the posts, before and and after yours contain none that were from a "612'er".

Excuse that 218'er ... you know how they are.

763'ers and 952'ers are the real troublemakers. Everybody knows that.

I heard this second-hand from a witness:
The story goes that Dylan returned to Hibbing for a class reunion many years ago and the envious rednecks verbally abused him. He won't return.
It is a true story, first hand and no he will not be coming back thanks to a few local jerks who thought more of themselves than Bobby or the town. Hibbing has always had a fair share of asses.
