Seems that if you notice Nobel Prize Committee pops up on your caller ID, it may be worth picking up the phone, unless your cultural icon, Bob Dylan.  Dylan has been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature this year and although the prestigious laureate honor would be a big deal for many, Bob isn't too concerned.  In fact the prize committee has attempted to contact Dylan several times in an effort confirm his willingness to accept the honor, along with a medal, citation diploma and cash prize of around $1million.  But Dylan hasn't returned calls or emails. The night he learned of his win, he made no mention of it at his Las Vegas concert. The Swedish Academy still does not know if Dylan plans to come to the event on December 10t but feel Dylan will eventually confirm his acceptance and attendance.
