We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Trucks is extraordinary -- probably the best blues slide player alive today. Check out some of his videos on YouTube with the Allman Brothers (he was playing slide guitar with that band at age 11! -- son of one of their drummers). What is striking in his videos (apart from his incredible talent) is his focus. No histrionics or gymnastics whatsoever. When he is really wailing, you might see him raise an eyebrow.
