    In a brief letter posted Friday on his website, BobDylan.com, singer-songwriter Bob Dylan disputed reports that he had originally been denied permission to perform in China or that government officials had censored his playlist.

    The Associated Press reports that New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd had written that Dylan "sang his censored set, took his pile of Communist cash and left." Ouch. Thems fightin' words.

    Dylan responded: "If there were any songs, verses or lines censored, nobody ever told me about it."

    What do you think of the Dylan/Dowd hoopla?
