Tweedledum and Tweedledee

Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll is one of my favorite books. Tweedledum and Tweedledee are two identical twins who have opposing view on most everything. Historically references to the twins have been used to characterize polor positions on an issue.

Why do I bring this up? Well Bob Dylan has a song from is album Love and Theft titled Tweedledee and Tweedledum, lyrics here. B. Dylan also has a new album out titled Together Through Life, check it out here.

My favorite stanza from Tweedledee & Tweedledum:
Tweedle-dee Dee and Tweedle-dee Dum
All that and more and then some
They walk among the stately trees
They know the secrets of the breeze
